evening in the vestry of the church.
I'lates ror 32 were laid and a dinner
enjoyed at 6:45. The tables were dec

Mr. Kindley. who is one of the
clever entertainers of the three cities,
has the gift of putting all of his
thoughts Into rhyme, and amply dem
onstrated his ability along these lines
during the evening. He is a keen
student of human nature, and gave
some good advice about different per

walks of life.

apprecia-ted and encouraged the de

AT THE BURTIS.
Miss Billie Burke in "Jerry." the
brand new comedy by Catherine Chris
holm Cushing, In which she scored a
big success at the Lyceum theatre,
New York, last spring, will be the at
traction at the Burtls in Davenport
next Wednesday evening. Miss Burke
has often expressed a desire to Imper
sonate an American girl on the stage
and in "Jerry" she fulfils that ambi
tion. The girl in this piece is a pre
cocious young miss from Chicago who
falls in love with a man who has been
engaged for 20 years to her aunt,
breaks off the engagement and, by
strategy, marries him herself. The
girl "Jerry" is her name is describ
ed as a maddening little minx, brutally
frank and horribly selfish, but abso
lutely adorable and the best role Miss
Burke has ever had. It fits her pre
cisely, of course, for it was written ex
pressly for her. Charles Frohman
presented her in it first at the Ly
ceum theatre, New York, last March
and the success she made there was
confirmed and emphasized a little lat
er when she took it to the Blackstone
theatre, Chicago. Mr. Frohman has
booked a very long tour for her In this
play this season and In the cities she
has already visited she has played to
crowded houses. As "Jerry" Miss
Burke has an opportunity to wear sev
eral girlish costumes from the very
latest models, as well as the pair of
pink pajamas that occasioned a veri
table sensation in New York and Chi
cago. Mail orders for "Jerry" are be
ing received at the Burtis box office
and filled in the order of their receipt.

AT THE ILLINOIS.
Manager Kllnck of the Illinois de
serves well from fie public in the
quality pictures he is putting on at
his theatre "between dates." They
are all of the best order, splendidly
exhlblted and "staged." The musical
accompaniment is a feature. Like the
pictures, it is continuous, for there
is nothing so dull as a motion picture
without accompaniment. Otherwise
It becomes altogether too pantomimic,
uninteresting and entirely non-exciting.
It takes a little ginger in Uie

the time, to make the moving picture

Edior Argus: Does anybody remem

paign of 50 years ago? I have cause
to remember the eventful torchlight
procession through Boston and Cam
bridge, in which I participated when
a freshman at Harvard in 1SC4. I
have been tired since that night, but
never so weary as when I dropped
into my bed at Hollis 20. absut 2
oclock in the morning, very wet,

A few days ago I received the fol
lowing from another victim of that
