Tile poster bluejacket is imminent.
In the development of the United
States naval service the navy depart
ment contemplates a more fantastic
line in adxertising- for recruits than
heretofore indulged in. The recruiting-
ollieers throng-bout the United
States, under instructions from Wash
ington, asked all applicants what first

Ihe most catchy mode, of advertising.
Lieut. L. II. Evtrhart. now on recruiting-
duty iu the middle states, sent Ja
report dealing- with jost advertising
for recruits, and, accompanied it with
samples of theatrical posters. He
)ointed out that artistic ones are
doubtless more calihinir than those
of ordinary quality, lie makes the
xint that an increase in attractive
ness of recruiting posters doubtless
will have a beneficial effect.
The UKitter is Vicing favorably con

bear a picture of a sailor of the Oic-g-on.
While the new desig-ns are not

New Dance KfTectn.
When Pain's big- pyrotechnic a! spec
tacle, "Ancient Koine," comes to
town we are to see something' decid
edly new in the way of dance effects
introduced into the ballet of. the show.
Datteries of huge electrical stereopti
cons and in;renius pyr technical de
vices are utilized to secure marvel
ous results, which are all original
with the "king-of pyrotechnics." as H.
J. Pain is popularly known in Ameri
ca and Europ.
The principal of these dances is
known as "Nero's Golden Italic!,' anil
is a part of the ceremonies in con
nection with the elaborate fetes plan
ned by the wealthy Nero to entertain
and dazle. As produced by Pain it
is the most beautiful and effective
"fire ballet" ever attempted, showiijg
eight, hand-soim- young ladies in a
furnace of fire.
Another pretty dance is the Grneco
Koman ballet, executed by beautiful
Greek slaves, and still another the
broadsword and shield combat' by
young Kom.tns. The costuming of
these dances, as indeed the entire cos
tuming of Kome, is the finest money
could produce, and are all historically
Special riermof Firework.
Pyrotechnist Pa'm has arranged a
number of special and attractive fire
works features esH'cially for the
pleasure of the ladies anil little folks,
which will lie shown during the en-g-agenienl
of the big Koine spectacle
in i Ins city. r.vcry performance of
this splendid exhibition will reveal
new .beauties, and especially in the
fireworks prog-ram will these changes
be most noticeable. The aquatic fire
works will be of unusual beautv and
interest here, because of I heir rarity,
nothing- in that particular line of
pyrotechnics ever having been exhi
bited in this city. The engagement
opens next Monday night and closes
the following Friday nig-ht.
Although the fireworks alone pos
sess the strongest of fascination for
the young ones, many special comic
fireworks devices have been arranged
for their benefit. The pretty "Golden
Itallet." the flower grirls. the music,
the daring- feats of the acrobats the
pastimes of the boys of Ancient
Koine, the beau ti fid scenic city itself,
as well as the impressive and instruc
tive historical lessons the huge spec
tacle so vividly presents, all combine
to make the attraction one of
special delight for the little people,
a well as the big- oiks.

QUESTION AS TO WHO . -.t
OWNS OATS TO BE DECIDED
An interesting' law suit promises to
make its debut in the circuit court at
Kockford shortly, should present
peace negotiations fail to reach an
amicable adjustment of the contro
versy. It appears that during the
cloudburst last Stiiukiv morning' at
lhat place, the entire crop of oats of
a certain farmer mulnur near was
swept bodily over into the pasture of
his next Uor neig-hbor. The crop . had
been cut and was standing in shocks
when the storm clouds broke loose.
When the wind and rain had sub
sided the entire cop had moved into
an adjoining- iasturc, and a controver
sy has eiiMicu as to who owns Ihe
iwits. A deceased horse, evident I v kill
ed by lig-htn'ng haiV also been swept
into the pasture land and the owner
of the premises is understood to have
remarked that Ihings were coming
Iiisi way in floods. If the interested
parties cannot get together with the
assistance of neighbors, the contro
very may come into the courts for a
