Old J. Pluvius got in its first rap of
the reason Saturday afternoon when
games between Davenport and Ottum-

enport. Yesterday afternoon Daven
port's first team clouted out a 11 to 1
victory over the Ottumwa team In
Davenport while at Muscatine, the
Pretzel Yannigans defeated the Ottum
wa Yannigans 5 to 2. The game be
tween the regulars was devoid of any
excitement other than a bunch of
heavy ball binging. The Prodigals
made five iruns In the third inning
and six Sn the fourth. Heavyweight
Coleman, who runs bases like an ele
phant, attempted to pull off a Bteal in
the fourth inning, but despite his joy
ful feeiing brought about by the ad
vent cf spring, he failed to get more
than half way there. Hendrix. for
merly with Waterloo, pitched the first
;four innings for Davenport while Hal

AT THE ILLINOIS.
Blanche Morrison, the prima donna
of "The Bohemian Girl" company,
which appears at the Illinois next Sun
day, took up a career on the operatic
stage not because she wanted to, but
largely on account of her friends in
sisting that she wasn't qualified for it.
After two years of study at the New
England conservatory of music and a
year under the celebrated Mme. Mar
chese in Paris. Miss Morrison, on re
turning to this country, succeeded
Grace Van Studdifod as prima donna
of the famous Boston ians. an organiza
tion that numbered among its members
Baruabee. MacDonald, Karl, D'Alvllle,
Cowles, Frothingham, Davis and many
other important people of the singing
world. Following her connection with
the Bostonians, Miss Morrison became
a member of the Fritz! Schefl company
as alternate with the star. After this
engagement she became associated
with the Aborns, and has under their
management acquired a repertoire of
over 70 operas. While the roles she
has sung are many, she delights most
in the portrayal of the character of
"Arline" in "The Bohemian Girl," as it
lends itself more to her natural talents
than do any other of the varied roles
she has assumed. In speaking of her
career, Miss Morrison said that the
! greatest of her worries previous to an
' actual engagement was deciding on a
; name for the stage. "All of my friends
insisted that, as I was about to take up
a stage career, I should assume some
high-sounding name. This idea, how

AT THE GRAND.
"Chantecler," Rostand's dream of
the barnyard, to be presented at the
Grand, Davenport, tomorrow night, had
its first production on any stage at the
Porte St. Martin theatre, in Paris, Feb.
1910. The work had Its first pro
duction In this country, .with Maude
Adams In the titular role, at the Knick
erbocker theatre, New York, in Janu
ary, 1911. The rehearsals that were
held tor the French production num
bered all told 127. In this country the
rehearsals of the company, stage hands
and electricians numbered 162. No
play ever presented In this country had
such thorough preparation before it
was given to the public. In the French
production the feathers on the cos
tumes of the "birds were glued on heavy
material; in Miss Adams' production
the feathers are all sewn by hand over
silk, which helps to heighten their ef
fect and make the costumes more col
orful and lasting. In the handling of
the production of the poetic fantasy, as
it Is to be seen here, i a small army of
stage hands is required. Attached to
the company is a stage director as
well as a stage manager. There are a
master carpenter and three assistants
a property master, and three assistants
and an electrician and three assistants.
There Is a wardrobe woman with two
assistants. In addition, there is a
"feather man," supplied by the Paris
firm which made the costumes, who
carefully sews in place" the feathers
that happen to drop out of the cos'
tumes. As the human birds and fowls
are always moulting, the "feather
man's" Job Is no sinecure. There are
a number of dressers attached to the
company to help the actors into their
odd costumes and to remove the tails
when )they come off the Etage eo that
they might sit down and rest until the
call comes for their appearance before
the footlights. While the force of me
chanics carried by Miss Adams Is an
unusually large one, the theatres in
which she presents "Chantecler" fur
nish about 50 men to help in the rapid
setting of the scenes and the handling
of the lights. The production on the
whole and in detail Is a wonderfully
novel one and it gives every evidence
of being the biggest success that Miss
Adams has ever had. ' '
Built In Blood.
The winter palace of the czars was
built la blood. Almost every stone of
the walls and every square yard of the
plaster lining them cost a life. Nich
olas bad given the order that the pal
ace mast be rebuilt in a year, and
what was human life against tbe des

kept at work day acd night, with the
palace heated at 30 It. to dry tbe walls
rapidly, while thejtemperarure outside
was often 30 degrees below zero K.
The men could only work with lee
packs on their heads, and, experienc
ing a dally change of 60 degrees, they
died by the score every day. By the
end of the year tbe death roll was
some thousands, but the palace was
