Kyrle Bellew, who comes to the
Grand, Davenport, Saturday of next
week in "The Builder of Bridges," a
new four act play, by Alfred Sutro,
the distinguished English dramatist,
will on that occasion make his initial
appearance hero as a Charles Froh
man star. Thougrh Mr. Bellew has tot
many years past enjoyed well deserv
ed, world-wide recognition in stellar
roles under various managerial auspi
ces in E'ngiand, America and Aus
tralia, yet it has so happened that he
has never appeared as a Charles Froh-
man star heretofore, although he has
many times played leading roles in the
more important of Charles Frohman'c
successful productions. "In a "Build-r
of Bridges" Mr. Bellew has secured, a
most interesting and highly dramatic
play, and at the same time one that
affords not only unustial scope for, but
is also peculiarly well fitted to hi3
fascinating personality, and eminently
artistic talent as one of the most ac
complished actors of the English
speaking stage. The entire New York
company and production, just as given
during the long engagement at the
Hudson theatre will be seen with Belle--

G. W. Payne Shared His Money With
Uncle While In Confederate Pris-"
on Mentioned in Will.
The filing for probate of the will of
the late Daniel Goodman, of thl city
brought out a story of the civil war
which is very interesting. Mr. Good
man was made a prisoner during the
war by th confederates and was taken
to the prison at Andersonville. There
be met a young man named George
W. Payne, who turned out to bo his
nephew. The two became friendly and
were constantly together when allowed
to be. Payne learned that. Mr. Good
man was without financial assets, hav
ing been relieved of everything by the
rebel soldiers who had captured him
Payne had managed to secret soma
money when captured and he had it
in his possession. He insisted upon
sharing up equally with his newly
found uncle and the latter was finally
persuaded to accept his half. He
never forgot the kindness and although
he had been separated from Mr. Payne
for many years he remembered the
incident and made mention of it in hi3
will and eet aside a sum of money to
be given to Mir. Payne as a token of
appreciation. It is understood that the
latter is well to do and not in need of
any financial assistance, but that he
will take it in the spirit In which it is
given and purchase something with it
to have as a keepsake.
