JHERE is only one
there are many kinds of soap. 1 here is
only one destination, but there are many
oaths that lead to it. If you want the short
est and safest road to Qeanliness, it is paved with
Ivory Soap. Neither man nor clothes ever get
beyond the cleansing power of Ivory Soap. Its rich,
creamy lather extracts every particle of dirt ; but
it stops at the dirt! Ivory Soap it floats.

Judge Foley, of Lincoln, III., who is
financially interested with George II.
Johnston in the new Illinois theatre,
and Frank W. Chamlerlin, of Itnrling
ton, of the firm of Chamberlin, Kindt
4 Co., arrived in the city this morn
.ng and the two, with Messrs. John
ston and Kindt were in conference all
day with a view of arranging forlhe
transfer of the ownership of the
theatre to Chamberlin, Kindt & Co.
This afterroon the party went to
Davenprrt, but at a late hour the
deal was still pending.
Manager Ceorge II. Johnston fully
realizes the folly and error of run
ning a cheap priced repertoire com
pany at the Illinois last week. Owing
to the fact It was holiday time and
the novelty of a new house, the re
ceipts were larger than they would
otherwise have been, yet it is self-evident,
that one first-class attraction
Xew Year's day would have brought
earnings exceeding the aggregate of
the week, while the exjeiises of the
theatre, to say nothing of the usage
it received, wo'uld have been reduced
to a minimum. One of the attaches
of the theatre informs the Argus
that he never saw the privileges of a
theatre more abused, that the floors,
even of the parquet, were so stained
with tobacco juice that it kept the
scrubbing gang constantly at work,
while some of the dressing rooms
could lie shoveled out after the com
pany ha d ended its engagement. One
of the women members of the com
pany even went so far as to convert
her dressing room into a private laun
dry during the week. The last few
nights of the engagement it was nec
essary for the management of the
theatre to station policemen in the
galleries, to control the boys who.
failing to be entertained by the stage
performance. found diversion in
throwing wads of paper, etc., at the
Hople in the parquet. The 10-cent
vaudeville made, as excetcd. a sorry
impression on the new theatre and
all connected with it.

Milwaukee official as speaking dis

All Three Cities
prevent the Kansas iCty short line en
tering Davenport, but they are not in
accord with the spirit manifest in
that city, whose aim is to keep the
line out of Hock Island and Mol:ne.
The Milwaukee's short line can just
as well enter all three cities as .not,
but its accommodations in Davenport
may not, because of the location of
the Crescent bridge, be as advantag
eously situated as if the line came
down on the Iowa side. This is the
reason that the people there, prompt
ed by selfishness and narrowness, are
endeavoring to divert the short line
from their neighboring cities entirely.
The Milwaukee, according to advices
the Arg.is has, will not yield to an
effort backed by the disposition so
apparent in that being put forth in
the city across the stream.
The situation, as far as the location
of the depot iii Davenport is concern
ed, is not dissimilar to that afrecting
the C. II. I. & P. in Rock Island, the
unavoidable conditions In both coses
being due to the bridge approaches
on the respective sides ol the river.
