NEW THEATRE TALK:
RECORD AT MUSCATINE.
Since J. II. Arthurs is to be back in
Rock Islaud again next week to take
up the ticket sale canvass for the
proposed new opera house it might
be interesting to the people hero to
know the record of the theatre that
PromoterG.il. Johnston erected in
Muscatine during the past year.
Since Its formal opening at Christmas
the total roceipts have been $2,000,
the management's sharo being $000.
This shows a prosperous condition
and the fact that Mr. Johnston, as
director of the play house, early won
the confidence of tbe public, wh!6h
thus far has had no occasion to regret
tbe trust it reposed in him, for nothing
but tbe beat of traveling companies
have been permitted to show in the
house,, and under the new manage
ment this policy will be strictly ad
hered to. Another popular innovation
on Mr. Johnston's part was the offer
ing free of charge every Sjunday night
the use of thcx theatre to any re
ligions denomination in the eity. The
result has been that each Sunday
night a. birge religious meeting has
been held in it. This plan also will
be followed In tne future.
Amoni; the attractions that are
booked in Muscat ine for next week
are Thomas Q Seabrooke, -"The Cirl
From Maxim's ' and BrookVs band.
If Rock Island will but get up and
dust a new theatre will go up here
during the coming summer. The
ticket sale canvass can be disposed of
in one week, as soon as tbat is com
pleted Mr. Johnston gives the assur
ance tbat he will immediately pro
ceed with bis port of tbe contract, it
is understood tho manssremert of the
lecture course entertainments may de
cide. owing to the condition of liar
per's theatre, to abandon the enter
tainments there after this season.

to be used in extending the present
lines of the company," in materially
improving the roadbed west of the

turned into . the treasury of tbe Bar

to be used in exteniions and improve

termcnts to cost this amount arc, ofii
ccrs of the company decline to say,
Those close to the Burlington manage
ment, however, are of the opinion
that the road, which is now nearing
Ogden, Utah, will be extended to
southern California, either as an inde
pendent line or in connection with the
Salt Lake and Los ADgeles, the pro

like f2.000.000 will be expended on
tbe roadbed and tracks of the system

It is understood (1,000,000 of the
amount will be used in construction
of transfer yards and the erection of
large graia elevators outside of Chi
cago to facilitate the handling of

Chicago for connection with eastern
Klectrle Alarm Bells.
: The Poria road Is fitting up four
crossings at the west end of tbe city
with electric alarm bells, such as are
used all over tbe country in the more
thickly settled districts. Tbe bell is
located at the crossing and has con
nections by wire both ways. A train
approaching from either direction by
its pressure upon tbe rails closes a
circuit and tbe bell rings till the last
car passes. This is an improvement
tbat win be highly appreciated by
those using tbe crossings at Third,
Fourth.. Filth and Sixth avenues.

Iu deference to the wishes of the
people uf St. Paul, represented by a
committee tbat was in conference with
the officers of tbe order, the executive
council of the Modern Woodmen be
fore adjournment of yesterday's ses
sion decided on a postponement of the
date of the opening of the biennial
head camp from June 4 to June 11.
As said iu yesterday's Arocs the rea
son St. Paul desired a change was due
to the fact that the National Medical
association is to hold its annual con
vention in that city the iirst week in
tbe same month, and as its plans have
progressed so far that it would not
only be inconvenient but expensive
fur the asssciation to make any alter
tions in its arrangements at this time,
tbe citizens decided to appeal to tbe
Woodmen oflicers for assistance out of
their d fliculty. feeling they would not

CAMP AND FOOD.
Getting Cioee to Nature.
It would hardlv seem possible to
some people tbat a man could, on
food, cure himself of tuberculosis.
'I was sent by my doctor to camp in
the mountains and to live largely on
Grape-Nuts food. My case was pro
nounced tuberculosis oi tbe uiauacr
by a famous New York specialist, the
best anthontv of all American spec
ialists in that line.
"I went into camp and used Grape-
Nuts as 1 would meat, bread or pota
toes. I was careful not to, over eat,
but used tbo food three times a day,
and at the cad of 10 weeks went for a
new examination, when not a trace of
tuberculosa could be found. My phy
sician looked at me and said, I don't
believe theie is such a marvclom case
as this on record.'
"Both the doctor and myself give
tbe credit to the Grape-Nuts food.
To be sure, I took outdoor exercise
and this no doubt helped me some.
but with all the outdoor air and exer
cise in the world, I could not build
up niy blood to a condition where it
would kill off the bacilli unless I had
good food of the character of Grape-
Nuts to do it en. For family reasons
