Beaaett LawqaeatlOBS aad Aa
The North, a Sc&ndinavianvAmerican
newspaper, published at Minneapolis,
has addressed circular letters to the
Scandinavian-American Lutherans of
Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota and
other western states with a view of as
certaining by means of questions appear
ing oo the same the opinions of the re
presentatives in this country of this na
tionality and creed as to the Bennett law
of Wisconsin. Prof. C. W. Fobs, vices
president of August ana college, is among
those who have sent in their answers.
The questions asked, together with the
replies of Mr. Fobs, are appended:
1. Are you in favor of compulsory
education T I am.
2. lo you approve of the Bennett
3 Do you find in that law any dW po
sition to unduly meddle with the civil and
religious liberties of the people? I do
4. Does the law prevent religious in
struction in private schools? It does
5. Is it the duty of the state to provide
for the education of its citizens :n the
English language? It certainly is
6 Should foreign-born citizens try to
pet pet u ate the national sentiments and
the language of the nations to which by
birth they belong? They should not
7. If not, is it not the duty of foreign.
born citizens to assist the state in its en
deavors to familiarize their children with
the language of the country, and thus to '
educate them into intelligent American
citizens? It is.
The answers thus far returned sustain
the views taken by Prof. Foss and favor
the law. They fail tQjhow much oppo
sition from the Swedish Lutherans.
The May Festival.
One year ago the women of the First
M. . church called upon the people of
Rock Island to patronize their May fes
tival, and the people responded grandly,
Since then the ladies of this church have
made no special appeal to the public for
help. They are building a 30,000
church, an ornament to the city and the
Ladies' Sewing society of the Methodist
church agreed to raise $3,500 of that
amount by hard work. Last year $2,000
of the subscription was paid, and now
they come before the people once more
asking them to patronize them in their
May festival that begins next Monday
night at the Rock Island rink. They
open their festival with a supper at 6 p,
m. that everybody is invited to partake of
at twenty-five cents, and then there wil
follow the splendid ectertainment, the
May day carnival participated in
by sixty children. Don't for any
thing miss the baby exhibition. Some
thing for all the old folks to
see. Eyery father, mother and child in
the city ought to see this lovely exhihi
tiou of our babies. Three magnificent
prizes, and competition is open to the
world. It will take place at 3 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon. Everybody entered
for the prize will be required to pay fifty
cents, and a beautiful gold plated chain
will be given to every child whose name
is entered. A competent committee of
non residents will be on hand to decide re
garding the handsomest child, children to
be dressed in plain white.
Every afternoon and night the rink will
he open to visitors. Refreshments served
at all hours, and supper every evening
during the week at 6 o'clock. Price of
single admission fifteen cents, children
ten cents. Tick eta good for eight ad
missions, f 1. Thursday will be under
the special management of the women of
the church who are immediately con
fleeted with railroad men, and there are
many of them in the church. Thev will
have a grand day if eyerybody patron
izes them, especially the supper at 6 p. m.
Crazy Ueorre'N Xtw Venture.
Everybody in Rock Island has at some
time or another seen Crazy George Coates,
the half wittcd individual from the upper
end of the county, who has made frequent
visita to the city with the outfit of two
or three donkeys and a home-made wag
on generally loaded down with the dry
bones of animals, etc. A rumor recently
prevailed to the effect that Crazy George
had died. This, however, proves to be
unfouuded. George has simply changed
his orbit, Hampton, Rapids City, Port
.Byron and LeClaire now being the points
in his line of travel. ne has forsaken
his old ways and is now a showman. A
stuffed wild cat, a wooden idol and the
proprietor are the principal attractions
The chief acting features are George's
capture of the wild cat and his descrip
tive lecture. He sets the stuffed animal
down in a convenient spot then hides
bimaelf in some corner near by. The
scenery is then in place for the perform
ance. When he thinks the suspense of
the audience reaches proper tension he
issues forth with a whoop and a war
club, and with antics peculiar to himself
assaults the stuffed cat. The combat is
brief, but decisive. George is the victor,
and he follows his success by a graphic
relation of circumstances concerning the
capture of the terrible beast. He ac
cepts the usual contribution of pennies
and nickels at the close of the perform
ance. Canary tfalldlaca.

On next Monday night we are to have
an extraordinary attraction at Harper's
theatre in the presentation by Rhea of the
historical drama, Josephine, Empress of
The production of Albert R. Haven's
historical drama "Josephine," at the
Broadway theatre last night by Rhea,
was, on account of the reputation of the
actress as well as because of the merits of
the piece in which she appeared, an in
teresting dramatic event which attracted
a large and critical audience. As can
readily be inferred from its name, this
new play deals with the salient episodes
in the divorce from Napoleon of this un
fortunate woman. It is always a task of
no little magnitude and extreme difficulty
for an author to develop a theme which
demands the presence of characters of
great importance. It must be conceded,
however, that Mr. Haven has met with
a large measure of success in the
construction of his play. He has ac
cepted as true the views of Napo
leon and Josephine with which the ma
jority are naturally in greater sympathy.
This woman is loyal, tender, devoted,
true, filled with sorrow at the enforced
parting, absolute in her devotion to the
emperor and a willing martyr to his
wishes and ambitions. The mainspring
of all her actions must be sought in her
overwhelming love for her husband, who
is represented as a man of generous im
pulses, full of affection, but preoccupied
by the interests of France, which to aim
are considerations paramount in impor
tance to anything else. So that the di
vorce is, from his standpoint, essentially
a personal sacrifice on his part, made
solely for the sake of his people. This
play is a strong one in its dramatic re
sults and in its literary form, and reflects
no little credit upon its author, who it is

That extreme tired feeling which Is so dis

rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We soli ;lt a comparison
