Monday with the Intelligent hone of the
company. "Young Joe," lopping at
Frtd Illlflngcr's harness ahop on Second

ness waa transferred to the back of the
horae, and then proceeded via. the bridge
to Davenport. The cart waa made
to order by the . American Fire
Hoae Manufacturing company, where the
hoae vehicle had been ordered, "Young
Joe" evidently felt aa proud aa the mem-,
bera of the company, and, at every tap
of the gong, he held hia bead and tail
up. The rill came to thia aide just in
t'mc to take the rear of the industrial pa
rade the music and admiration of the
friend of (be company did not disturb
the bonte In the least.
The full iiii'tnhership of the company

place underneath the wagon bed. Pro

er in the rear of the driver's seat. The
whole outfit is a thing of beauty and will
be handled by the company for the gen
eral good of the property holders of the
city. Firemen of the different companies
of the city were visitor yesterday and
all corners of the Are department think
the company made a wise choice in horse
and wagon. The three beds with bed
ding have been put in the aide room and
they will be used by three members every
night in rotation as their respective names
appear ou the roll.
This company was organized In 1872

which is every respect creditable to the
firemen and the people who allied
them with their money and encourage

AT THE THEATRE.
Alaa Baelcta New Play, -rabl
Mr. Alden Benedict, who baa appeared
in Rock Island before in a stage adapta
tion of "Monto Crlsto," gave a present
tlon of bia new play, "FabioRomanl." at
Harper'a theatre last evening. It ia a
production written especially for Mr.
Benedict, and though not dissimilar to
"Monti Cristo" is more of a apectacular
melodrama and 1 it anything more sen
sational and terrible in the plot con
ceived. It "ia a tale of the dead." found
ed on base deception and duplicity
on the part of a wife, villainous
cruelty and treachery on the part
of a supposed friend, an infamous plot
discovery and awful vengeance. The
scenes are laid in Italy. Alden Benedict
assuming the dual role of "Fabio Roma
ni" and "Conte Caesaro Oliva." The
other leading characters are:

ler; "Respetti," a grand piece of acting
by J. K. Vernon, and "Nina." by Bliss
FrancU Field the latter one of the most
remarkable impersonations ever put
upon the stags, and which is finely sus
tained indeed. The scenic effects were
strong, especially in the last act, where
is shown the bay of Naples a thrilling
earthquake effect, simultaneous with an
eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

tipped his hat, with, "Why, how do you do,
Kitty Johnson I" "Why," says another, "if
that isn't Kitty Johnson I" "How d'ye do,
Kitty I" said the third. The young lady, a
young, pretty, ladylike girl, was surprised
and indignant. Her face grew red and white
by Aims. Most of the pasnengors understood
the situation. Finally, the girl, her eyes
twinkling with merriment, and conscious of
the support of her fellow passengers, an
swered in a clear, ringing voice that every
passenger could hear: "Why, how do you do,
Tom, Dick and Hurry f Wbon did you get out
