Tba merchanU' carniTal came to an end
last night, after affording aooth unique
and brilliant entertainment to an audience
of delighted ipeclators far exct edioz in
numbera the attendance of tb opening
nigiit. The affair may trutl fully be
termed one of the most enloTible and
aucceasrul eer given in the city. The
ladlea of the Central Presbyterian church
hare worked unceasingly in tb matter,
and thoae who have been netreat the
helm and have guided and engineered it
tnrough must realize what a deal of labor
has been employed and they shmld feel
a source of gratification now that crown
ing all has come such a maiked success .
The entertainment of last n:ght had
aome variations from the present t'ions of
the previous evening and all were in the
way of improvement, could such be dos
sible. Under the direction of 8er,eant H.
A. McDonald, of the Rodman Rifl-s, a
number of additional manoeuvres were
shown in the military drill and grand
march of the carnivalista. and tb ise were
all readily appreciated and heartily ap
Immediately following the tableau.
with which the carnival conduced, was
a feature unexpected by all sue a very
few, but it was one of the most interest-,

While tbe brilliantly attired lacies still
stood in tbe form of a semi-cm le. Miss

place in tbe line in her beautiful costume
of4natural flowers representing 3aetbje,
the florist, and presented 8erge nt Mc
Donald with a handsome bouquet in be
half of Mr. Gaethje and the Ixd es who
had taken part. The sergeant had scarce
ly recovered his breath from tbe surprise
when Mr. J. M. Buford dragged into the
center of the ball a lovely rockin; chair,
and while tbe applause that bad greeted
the previous presentation alm.wt drowned
his voice, he spoke a few appropriate
words, tendering the cift in behaif of the
Ladies' Aid society of tbe Centn.l Pres
byterian church and as a token, be said,
of their appreciation of bis kindness and
skill in so gently and so successfully
drilling such a large company of the fair
sex. Tbe recipient was almost over
whelmed, but he becomingly acknowl
edged tbe courtesies and after forming bis
company again and putting it through a
series of brief n ilitiry evolutions, dis
A season of social enjoyment followed
during which an opportunity wai given
to mora closely view and admire fome of
tbe costumes, and the fashion editor of

dress was of red silesia, ornamented
with an immense variety of cakes and
crackers, ber necklace and bracelet! beine
of tbe same and ber banner and cap very
impropriate. Tbe scene as tbe i arious
characters mingled and commingled on tbe
floor was almost bewildering and
presented a view that was like a
kaleidoscope to the delighted ee. A
comic creation was that of Miss Clara
Bass, who with hair flying and dre sed as
an Italian, went about tbe floor flaying
an organette, while a cute little b y was
sent ahead with a tin enp which I e suc

Following this was tbe presentation of
tbe pretty operatta the "Uipsy Queen,"
given under the direction of Mits Eva

manifested in toe clever production which
reflected credit upon the lady herself as

Mr. H. Dftitacb, proprietor of tbe

located at No. Ill West Second street,
Davenport, has just returned f-om a
large purchasing trip to Chicago, where
be has made tbe grandest and fln st se
lection of dry goods, notions, cloalj and
wrap of the very latest and fashionable
patterns and styles. To go through his
establishment and gel sight of so many
handsome and fashionable gaimenu
eives one great pleasure. It is a gen
uine satisfaction to know tba' Mr.
Deutsch has done his utmost to
please the trade. Tbe superior quality,
style, fit and finish of bis garments are so
well known throughout the entire west
that comment is unnecessary. He does
not tell second-grade goods fir the
reasons that it coats as much in la jot to
produce a poor garment as a good one
and people are never satisfied with a second-class
article when the best costi such
a small difference to start with. His
stock of cloaks and wrap is unquestion
ably the largest and there is not a lothar

THE BOCKS ISLAND
AT THK THEATRE.
Mlra Battle Harrrr la "A Little

Really one of the best entertainments
Manager Steel has given his Rock Island
patrons, is the presentation of "A Lit'
tie Tramp," by Miss Hattie Harvey and
Mr. E. D. Lyons and a strong support
ing company at Harper's theatre last even'
ing. A simple, yet an intensely interest
ing itory is this, that tbe distinguished
English playwright, W. G. Wills, E?q.
tells in the comedy-drama, "A Little
Tramp."chosen from among many others.
as the most suitable for the versatile tali
eat of Miss Hattie Harvey. "A Little
Tramp' was first produced at tbe Prince
of Wales theatre London, by Mrs. Lang'
try, with Mr. E. D. Lyons, who shares
the honors with Miss Harvey on the
present tour in the leading male role.
The plsy was a grand success, the critics
of the great metropolis praised it with
one accord, the superior quality of its
material, its faultless construction, its
dramatic force, the originality of the
plot and purity of language in which the
story is told. "A Little Tramp" has en'
joyed a highly successful career through
out England. Tbe nature of tbe plot is
such, and it is unfolded so delicately, so
gracefully, that to publish tbe entire
story would be to rob the auditor of
many pleasant surprises. Tbe character
of Jesfiie Daw, as presented by Miss Har
vey, is one of tbe great possibilites which
by her youth, beauty, viyacity and ten
derness in emotional scenes, presents one
of the prettiest pictures before the pub
lie, enlivened by Miss Harvey's artistic
singing and dancing. "A Little Tramp'
has tbe elements to satisfy tbe most s&n
guine patrons of dramatic art. It is to
be repeated at Harper's theatre tonight.
The support was strong, especially that
of Miss Nellie Atherton, who sustained
her part with becoming grace, and won
no small portion of the honors of the
Miss Emma Abbott opened ber engage
ment at tbe Burtia opera bouse last night
in "111 Trovatore," Verdis' masterpiece
and the grandest of Italian operas. It
is more fsmiliar than most of the great
operas, because more tuneful. Emma
Abbott appeared as "Leonora," with
strong cast and company, including grand
orchestra. This evening the company
appears in the "Rose of Castile." This
grtnd opera represents the most brilliant
school of opera. The music is especially
bright. The costumes and royal toilets
in the palace scenes are as rich as were
ever worn at any court.
At tbe Turner Grand at Davenport to
morrow afternoon and evening and Mon
day evening tbe famous Hanlon's "Fan
tama" is to be presented. This brilliant
spectacle has all the features of former
years, and a world of scenery and effect
and dazzle that is new. It is tbe best
scenic display in America today.
On next Tuesday evming Daniel Sully
is to present his comedy "Daddy Nolan."
Says tbe Cleveland Prt:
Daddy Nolan is a faithful portrayal of
an honest old man who is thrown into
povertv by the recklessness of his eldest
son, and who slaves to pay off the boy's
indebtedness. When all resources are
exhausted the young man returns, rich
and competent to smooth over tbe diffi
culties. Throughout the piece there is a
genuine manhood displayed underneath
rough exteriors. Mingled in are quiet
grief and mirth, and tbe audience are
crying one moment and laughing uproar
iously the next The stage settings in
tbe first and laat acts were good. Max
Arnold, as Daddy's German friend, made
a bit by his brogue and capital dancing.
He, with Sully, received tbe most ap
plause. Daddy Nolan runs the week at

Veare Aar aad What It New la.
The ateamboating season on the upper
Miasissippi river for this season ia about
over and a number of the large boats have
gone into their winter quarters. Steam
boating on the Mississippi is far different
from what it used to be. In fact the era
of steamboating ia embraced in three-
quarters of a century. In that time the
slow-going, ill-constructed craft, modeled
upon tbe plan of the ancient Ohio river
arks, developed into the magnificent and
majestic floating palaces of which there
are now no representatives.
An exchange aays:
Life on board those splendid and elab
orately furnished steamers was, in the
days before railwaya gridironed the con
tinent, the realization of Oriental luxury.
Nobody was in a hurry. And tbe lordly
planters and wealthy merchant! who
traveled With their families on these crreat
ships which ntvigated the mighty Father
vi vv aiera ceniraatea wltn tbe rude and
uncouth pioneers who were building up
an empire in the wilderness upon its
banks, and with the negro slaves who also
made up a large pro portion of the careoea
of these floating palaces assisted to form
a strange and remarkable panorama of
lire m tbe Heart of tbe new world.
But the era of The rail and the wl
dawned and the whole world became
plunged into a vortex of hurry. Tbe great
river steamers began to decline in tavor.
They became fewer year by year, while
me river crart developed into tbe most ad
vantageous forma of freleht carriers.

like an eastern palace, with a score of
gay flags fluttering in tbe breeze atd tall
black towers belching inky smoke and
vexing tbe blue sky with their murky
