The play selected -by local play
goers for the appearance of Madame
Modjesta next Wednesday evening at
tne Burtis is "King John," in which
she will have the assistance of the
well-known artists, R. D. MacLean
and Odette Tvler. Mcdjeska's fame
as the one really great tragic actress
of this generation makes any particu
lar heralding unnecessary. She has
been associated with the American
stage for more than 20 years, and to
say that her influence, both artistic
and exemplary, would, if withdrawn.
be keenly missed, but mildly ex
presses the services she ha rendered.
She has dignified her profession not
only by her genius, but by her per
sonal charm and worth as a woman.
Madame Modjeska's farewell tour is
being directed by the firm of H'agen
hals & Kemper, who, notwithstanding
P. T. Barnum's admonition that hum
bug is tbe easiest road to success,
have demonstrated that the public
can be won just as surely if not as
quickly, by keeping absolute faith
with patrons ana professing no
more than they knew they could per
form. Their management of Louis
James, the James-Kidder-Warde
combination, and other ventures,
are so fresh in the public mind, that
no assurance is necessary to tbe ef
fect that Modjeska's supporting com
pany and the scenic and other acces
sories will be worthy the fame of their

MILWAUKEE SHORT LINE
RUMOR ABROAD AGAIN.
The Muscatine News-Tribune spins
an interesting tale relative to a pro
posed move on the part of the Milwau
kee road. It is recalled that during
the past year an engineering corps in
tbe employ of tbe C. M. & St. P.
Railway company made the survey of
a route from Clinton via Davenport to
Muscatine and from here via Wash
ington to Oltumwa. It was stated at
tbe time that the company would con
struct a railroad over this route in or
der to shorten its line from Chicago
to Kansas City. Now, according to
the Muscatine paper, comes the assur
ance that this contemplated action is
to become a reality, ana that, too,
within the coming year. A Muscatine
Lcitizen chanced to meet a Milwaukee
official prominent in the councils of
that corporation a few days snue and
was informed that the road would
surely be built the coming year. He
Htated that the line running from
Marion to Oltumwa, over which K. C.
connections are now made, is receiv
ing little attention, no improvements
of consequence being made, as the in
tention i, in the near future, to send
tbe southwestern traffic over the new
road, which will be a fine piece of con
struction. The revival of these eur
mises strengthens , tbe belief hereto
fore alluded to of the Milwaukee com
ing into Rock Island over the Trl-City
Route and crossing the lower rjridge
at this point.

"About five years ago I was troub
led with catarrh of the lower bowel,"
says C. T. Chisholm. 484 Dearborn
avenue, Chicago, and although I con
sulted several eminent physicians,
who prescribed for me, I found their
remedies failed in any way to relieve
me, and the trouble almost became
chronic. After suffering several
months. I one dav concluded to try
Chamberlain's Colic, Cho era and Diar
rhoea remedy and I beg to assure you
that 1 was most agreeably surprised
to find after taking two doses of the
remedy that I was completely re
lieved of the disease that had cost mo
so much trouble and annoyance. I
am thankful to say that I have not
suffered from it since." For sale by

Cheap substitutes of Foley's Honey

The principal ingredient of these sub
