here with all the great features with
whieh they startled New York and
other eastern cities at the beginning
of ihis season, it has leen the cus
tom of so many shows to exhibit in
some large city and then travel on
the reputation made in such city by
giving a programme far in advance
of the one they exhibit while travel
ing through the country. Whatever
else may be said about the Fore-paugh-Sclls
shows there is a certainty
that when they say anything the ut
most reliance may lie placed upon
their statement. They pledge, them
selves to repeat the same perform
ance here, complete in every detail
with all the great and champion per
formers and new and exclusive fea
tures, which they gave in the metro
polis. If this programme does not
satisfy everybody who sees it they
must be harder to please than are
those who live in the metropolis
where only the biggest and best of

that reason that these are the only

TO DRAIN LAND
IN UPPER END
Zuma and Hampton Townships
Forming a District Nine
. Hon. William McEniry and Judge
E. J. Searle, of this city, are work
ing for the forming of a drainage
district in Zuma and Hampton town
ships, which, if carried out, will re
sult in the dredging of a ditch nine
miles in length, 30 feet wide and rive
feet deep, and the draining of about
4,000 acres of bottom land on the
west bank of Rock river that is now
farmed with diffctilty or not at all
on account of the excessive moisture.
The. undertaking is meeting with
much encouragement, the experience
in the Meredosia serving to encour
age the farmers of the upper end of
the county to look with favor upon
an enterprise of this sort. The cost
of the ditch is estimated at $16,000
and the work will be done with a
dredge boat, which will work from
the upper end, down, depending upon
the water. in the ditch to keep it
TALES OF THEATRE
The Van Dyke & Eaton company
closed a week's engagement at the
Illinois Saturduy evening.
"Held by the Enemy," William Gil
lette's famous play, was presented
before an appreciative audience at
the Illinois last evening.
"For Home and Honor," the new
melodrama success, which will receive
its initial local p resent at ion at the
Illinois theatre tonight, comes high
ly spoken of by the press throughout
the east where the play achieved a
most emphatic success. Relative to
the drama the Philadelphia Record
says: A new melo-drama had the
first presentation at the Standard
last evening. It is English in origin
and entitled 'For Home and Honor.'
The aiithor'ls Lem B. Parker. The
story is one of a woman s wrongs.
and the supreme moment of the play
is reached in the tragic incident
which shows the startling but alto
gether justifiable avenging of those
wrongs. The play was particularly
well staged, and the large audience
enjoyed the development of the plot.
which was excellently well presented
by the capable members of the com
Klaw & Krlangcr's mammoth pro
dnction of the Drnrv ltne spectacle.
The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast,'
at the Illinois theatre, Chicago, is the
most timely amusement now being
presented in' that city. -Fir the first
time in the history of the American
stage there. is on view in the metro-
pons a genuine j-.uiiisii urisiiuu
spectacle, an entertainment so popu
lar in England that it is, looked on
as an institution. But while the Il
linois production presents nil the
spectacular features of the Ioudon
production of the piece, it differs
very materially in all its other as
pects. Klaw & Lrlanger had . the
original book of "The Sleeping Beau
ty and the Peast" completely rewrit
ten and incorporated into it that
quickness of notion and the specialty
divcrtisenient so pleasing to the
American theatre patron. The result
of these changes and additions is a
story that would prove u success
even without the marvelous ccnic in
vestiture and artistically gorgeous
costuming' fircsented during the pro
gress of the performance.' Klaw S-
Erlanger have especially developed
the humorous interest, which, inter
