The prisoner was brought to Rock Island
and lodged in tbe police station aod bia

vidge is a bicycle rider about seventeen
years of age and his parents reside in
Canada. He aet out from Chicago on bis

became dead broke, but made bis way to
Rock Island, arriving at the Rock Island
bouae about a week ago without cycle or

tbat be had become tired of ridintr, and
had shipped bis wheel to Chicago, and

the funds came not, and those who had
trusted him began to believe that bis by

for board somewhere and tbat
the young man was a fraud. Suns

port and returned yesterday morning

battered up. Chief Clerk Bloom gave
him a coat, and then demanded pay for
his beard and lodgings, and he gave a
check for $15.60 on Mills & Keller, of
Cedar Rapids, who on being asked by

evening bill. Is new. It ia a beautiful
work by Balfe, his greatest work, and one
of tbe moat brilliant of tbat school of

in 185tt in London, but as it is one that
requires much lavish preparation, ita
vocalization being of the most brilliat t
sort for Elvira, tbe Queen of Castilr,
especially and the orchestration diffi

except by two companies. Part k a Rosa

they were equipped with the highest

and orchestra. The aale of seats will
