There baa been a si lengthen inn of
the Colts since then, and the indica

opinion he has gotten together the

Mr. Kelley is the fastest shorthand

afternoon to ffive an exhibition at
Brown's business college. All the stu

With no apparent effort the young

is willing to do 'J." or -HI words better.
In fact, he isn't sure but he might in

he can find a person who talks that
fast. He is looking for a fast talker

Rock Island has hail two studies of
Shakespeare's old comedy, "Twelfth

splendid company headed by Marie

Mien came last evening in the second
production, and it must be admitted,
not taking into cons-deration the
itara, the company is which Miss
Wainwrght appeared was the strong
er. Put there is a charm to Miss Al
len's personality and her acting that
has brought her very close to the pa
trons of the theatre. Her name stand
ing alone is sufficient to attract a full
house. She had one last night, and
she repented the triumph she made
here two season's ago in "In the Pal
!' of the Kinjr." Miss Allen in phv
dque and temperament Is admirably
suited to the character of Viola, and
the enters into its interpretation with
the same nuturalness, earnestness and
fervency that characterized her work
in till former plays. Viola Is a pari
that is very easily exaggerated, but
Miss Allen carefully avoids any devia
tion from the intent of the author
that would permit of this criticism.
Her own personality pervades her ev
ery movement. That is what has
Bade her performance of this comedy
on which so many stars have been
wrecked financially the success it has
proved. Scott Craven was the Duke
of Illyrin, James Voung was Sebas
