BROKE DOWN AT CLINTON

Night Was One of the Best in
30 Years on Stage.
After amusing the American play
going public for 30 years, during the
greater part of which time he was a
comic opera Idol. Edward Eagleton has
made his last appearance and has been
taken to a sanitarium in New York,
where it is hoped the shattered rem
nants of his mind may be preserved.
lie Is going insane.
The play, which was to have been
given in Moline last night and in Mus
catine tonight, has cancellled all dates.
When the curtain went down iX Clin
ton, Iowa. Saturday evening, after the
last act of "The Telephone Girl" in
which he was starring as "Hans Nix."
Eagleton announced to his company
that he had made his last public ap
pearance and that the show had closed.
While he was making the announce
ment, the hisses and cat calls of the
audience sifted through the curtain.
The comedian groped his way to his
dressing room, broken hearted. Tlu:
last four days had been filled with the
deepest woe for him. For the first
time in his long stage career, he had
learned what it meant to be hissed bv
an audience. He realized that his work
was bad, but he did not want to close
the show until he was able to pay oft
his supporting company.
Doen Not Illnmr l'coplf.
"I am rotten."- he would exclaim. "I
can't blame them for that." pointing
his finger expressively toward' the cur
tain, front of which the audience was
yelling in derision. '
l know I make the kids laugh, but
the older people wonder what license
have on the stage and why such
frauds are allowed to take their money.
But it isn't my fault. I am working ar
hard as I can. The fault is here," and
he would tap his head, while the tears
ran freely down his cheeks.
The comedian, whose career, until
few days ago, was a bright and un
sullied one. is 45 years old. He made
his first appearance when but 15 year?
of age and gradually ascended in the
profession until a few years ago he
was classed among the top-notch com
edians on the western stage.

. One of the closest and fastest game
of basketball ever played in Rock
Island ,was seen'at the college gymnasi
um last evening, Augustana defeating
Nebraska Wesleyan university by a
score of 2C to 24. A large crowd ol
students gathered to see the game, and
it was doubly enjoyed because the play
went' smoothly and was marred by
nothing. The teams were evenly
matched, and at no time did either
have a long lead. So the game was not
won until time was called in the last

The scoring started after about four
minutes of play, a field basket being
thrown by Purn of Augustana. Through
out the game he was the star of the
home team, and White is entitled to
the same recognition for the visitors.
The score at the end of the first half
was 13 to 12 in favor of Augustana.
The lineup was as follows:

The fool hens are deceived by the
weather and have gone to laying just

so heavy in January, commission men
say. The wholesale price has taken a
sudden, dip in Rock Island from 2u
cents to 18 or 20 cents, and unless a
cold spell comes along soon will go
considerably lower. Those who have
invested heavily in cold storage eggs
are facing heavy losses.
