Tri-City Press Clubs Annual Enter
tainments Have Attracted
To the Tri-City Press club, whose
annual entertainment occurs at the
Burt is opera house March SO. belongs
the credit of bringing to this communi
ty an array of men famous as lecturers
travelers, writers and entertainers.
They have all been men eminent in
their chosen sphere of action. When
McCutcheon. the cartoonist, the crea
tor of "Bird Center." etc., and George
Ade, the humorist and playwright, first
visited the trl-cities, they came under
the auspices of the press club. Before
them came Riley, the poet, in his in
imitable portrayal of Hoosier manner
isms, and also Sir Robert Ball, of Eng
land, a giant among the world's as
tronomers, with the stars and planets
at his finger tips. Then followed Harry
De Windt, the explorer, who made that
wonderful journey through Siberia and
its hardships, crossed the Bering
straits into Alaska, and told a graphic
story of his travels with a strong cock
ney accent. Editor Henry Watterson,
he of the trenchant pen and the pictur
esque vocabulary, was last season the
attraction secured by the press club.
This year to this list is added Rabbi
Fineshriber, endowed with the divine
gift of eloquence, who will lecture on
Russia and Its Modern Problems." In
addition a literary and musical program
is arranged for.

Louisa Smith Found in Helpless
State in Third Avenue
TAKES DRINK AS A BRACER
Lono. Ride On a Train Is
Fined $1 As a Disorder-
Fatigued bv a long ride on the cars
from a city in the south, a woman giv
ing her name as Louisa Smith bought
herself a pint of whisky at a Rock Isl
and saloon last night to brace up. as
she told the magistrate when brought
before him on a charge of disorderly
conduct. She was let go with a fine of
$1. The woman was found drunk and
asleep in the front doorway of the Win
ters liquor house on Third avenue at an
early hkur this morning by Policeman
John Kinney. She was escorted to po
lice headquarters and placed in a cell.
She was partially sobered when she
awoke this morning and she broke into
a crying spell. Her moaning could be
heard for a block. The officers were
unable to quiet her, and let her con
tinue until she wore herself out.
Tukra II n a Me.li.-lue.
Iouisa said that she had no love for
liquor. When she did imbibe it was
solely for medicinal purposes. She
gave the names of several Rock Island
families by whom she had been em
ployed as servant in years past. Re
cently she went south, but did not like
the country, and returned to Rock Isl
and. She had a position in view here,
but when she alighted from the train
last night she was not feeling as she
thought she should. She said she call
ed at the back door of a saloon and
purchased a half pint of whisky. She
took one drink, and in less time than it
takes to relate the fact, she declared,
she was wobbling. Ixmisa believes
that the saloonkeeper put dope in the
liquor, but. for what reason she could
not state. She did not know him, neith
er did he know her.
Pint Should Mot Hurt Anyone.
"But I remember the saloon where I
bought the liquor." said louisa, "and
I will get even with that man. no mat
ter how long it takes to do so. If I
had drunk the whole pint it would not
have affected me, unless there was
something in it that should not be
there." Forgetting her declaration that
she was not accustomed to drinking
stimulants, Eouisa said that often be
fore she had taken down a pint of red
eye, and no one would be any the
wi.ser unless she peached on herself.
Louisa refused at first to tell the police
her name. She said she had many ac
quaintances in the city, and she" did not
want them to know of her plight. When
told that there must be a name for rec
ord, she said to let It go at Smith. She
said she had left her baggage at a local
hotel, but she would not say which one.

Many people went from Rock Island

a line artistic success.

Schubert, Schuett, a group by Brahma,
a double Strauss number, including
the delicate Traumerel, a Nocturne by
Paderewski, and the Wedding March
and Dunce of the Elves by Mendelssohn-Liszt.
The audience demanded
a repetition of the beautiful Nocturne,
and after the last number recalled the
player with hearty and sincere ap
plause which brought forth a Ruben
stcin waltz that was a happy addition
to the program.
Miss larkin, in the second part of
the program the melodrame, "Enoch
Arden." with Tennyson's xem in its
beautiful musical setting by Richard
Strauss, added to the successes which
