of harm as in the enthralling scenes
of the Wallace" romance, and for de
light of mystery, romance and exciting
adventure, this drama has never been
surpassed in the annals of the Ameri
can stage. General Lew Wallace
hoped to be best remembered as a
writer of the style 'of fiction exempli
fied in his greatest story, "Ben Hui:
A tale of the Christ." It is no ordi
nary play, but one that has been put
forth with a great purpose, and.- it
marks an epoch in dramatic presenta
tion. Rarely has a text seemed so
filled with beauty or the marvelous
story seemed so rich in sympathetic
appeal as in the present scenical!
perfect production which is to occupy
the stage of tha Burtis, Davenpor.

"The Two Johns." There is nothina
keener in this old world of ours than
competition. It is to be found in eve -y
walk of life and it is especially mani
fest in the theatrical business. A
manager in order to attract his public
must give the best goods fcr the least
money. If he can do this he is sure
of a certain percentage for his pains,

"The Umpire" and "The Girl Ques
tion." Mr. Singer is perhaps the firs'
of the big producers of musical come
dies to realize' that play goers of the
so-called "road cities" are entitled tr
the same grade of shows that Chicago
and New York receive Mr. Singer's
traveling companies invariably live up
to this ideal and arc given in the same
manner in tne smallest one night
stand as they are in Chicago. Mr
Singer announces that in "A Girl at
the Helm" he is making the most ela
borate production of the best musical
comedy he has ever produced at the
LaSalle. The company presenting the
piece includes such people as Billy F.
Clifford,. Maud Lambert, Counters
Olga Von, Hatzfeldt, Florence Martin,
Leo Hayes, Bernhardt Niemeycr, Rob
ert G. Pitkin, Edward Beck and Har
vey Fellows. The names tell the
story. Mr. Clifford and Miss Lambert
have delighted millions as vaudeville
head liners. Countess Von Hatzfeldt
is conceded to be one of the most
beautiful women in the world. Flor
ence Martin was Eddie Foy's leading
woman in "The Orchid" last season.
Robert Pitkin has starred for several
seasons in numerous musical comedies.
The others are hardly less prominent.
There Is also a chorus of 40 young
women who are said to possess mucb
more than the average looks and
youth. Features of the production are
the great motor boat race which :s
produced -with intricate electrical ef
fort; the song sensation "The Ghost ot
Rag Time," declared to be the song
hit of the decade and whleh receives
from 15 to 20 encores at every per

A well known Rock Island business
man is fond of telling of one of his
earlv speculations, lt had to do-with
onions. One fall when the gentleman
had not long been in business here,
there was a big crop of the odorous
vegetable in this vicinity and some
body tipped it off that there was money
in buying them up. So the Rock 13-
lander bought, but, strange to say, the
price went down. Then somebody else
told him that there would be money
In onions in the spring, and so, having
big, dry cellar under his store, he
put the onions away.
In the spring the owner of tho
onions found that his cellar had been
too warm and.that the vegetables had
sprouted badly. It really made little
difference, for therewas absolutely no
market for them, anyway. So a cou
pie of teamsters were employed and
the whole assortment was taken down
near ;he slough in the west end of the
city and dumped out.
Transferred from the cellar to the

open air, the onions continued to
Siow, and by and by the numerous
cows owned in the west end of the
city and allowed to run at large, found!
out where they were, and then it was
not long till everybody knew about
them. People began to notice the
taste of onions in their milk, and
shortly a procession of angry dames
from the lower part of town began
moving toward the luckless business
man's store to tell that gentleman the
unanimous opinion 'entertained of him.

HIS CASE IS TYPICAL.
One of the recruits gathered in bv
Jack Tighe of the baseball cluB is still
verdant around the edges despite the
fact that he bids fair to become a fix
ture on the club. The other players
are passing around a joke on him.
Several days after practice started the
new player was requested by the man
ager to go to a certain sporting goods
store and get a baseball. Tire new
player did not know that the club has
a whole boxful of baseballs there
merely waiting to be called for and
ne supposed mat tne manager ex
pected him to buy a ball for the day's
practice. It is more than likely that
this is just what he would have done
had his circumstances been different
lut he had to remark sadly . to the
manager, "I'm sorry. Jack, but I can't
get a ball as I haven't the price."
