THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, SATURDAY, AUGUST -23, 1890.
Ooktan Eyes, to win you yet,
I bring mine April coronet;
The lovely blossoms of the spring
for you I wears, to you I bring:
These roses with the lilies wet,
The dewy, dark eyed violet.
Narcissus, and the windflower wet,
Wilt thou disdain mine offering.
Ah. Golden Eyes?
Crowned with thy lover's flowers, forget
The pride wherein thy heart Is set.
For thou, like these or anything.
Hast but thine hour of blossoming.
Thy spring, and then the long regret.
Ah, Golden Eyes?
Lord Fanfare was the fourteenth peer who
had borne that noble title. There was noth
ing very remarkable about Lord Fanfare; he
was an easy going old boy. I dont think
that at any period of bis career be would ever
have set the Thames on fire If he bad tried;
but I am very, rery certain that he ueverdid
try. The Fanfares were not a rich family;
they had been courtiers for generations, and
1 dont think they got much out of it. Old
Fanfare himself, when be only held the com
plimentary title of Lord Tootle, bad been a
royal page, and bad commenced life as a
courtier; then be went into the guards; and
then he did the wisest thing he ever did In his
life, be bolted with the daughter of the late
proprietor of the Methuselah pill, and he
came into a hundred thousand pounds and
the business. Then young Lord Tootle sold
out of the guards, and settled down at the
age of 85, getting as much fun as possible out
of his wife's fortune and the Methuselah puL
Lord Fanfare was not unkind to his wife; at
first he was quite a pattern husband, but
gradually a coldness arose between them, for
poor Lady Fanfare failed to present him with
At the end of ten years, however, the little
Lord Tootle was born, and at his birth bis
mother died, and from that time forward
Lord' Fanfare devoted himself to the rearing
and education of little Lord Tootle. Many
were the traps set for that wily old bird.
Lord Fanfare. Mothers cringed to bim.
daughters smiled at him, widows ogled him,
musical girls played at bim, vocal girls
squalled at bim; but all in vain. ' Lord Fan
fare wasn't a marrying man, and the ladies
bad their labor for their pains. They resent
ed that, the dear creatures of course they
did; and then they bad their revenge. It was
Lady Kitty Candour who set it going.
mean that it was Lady Kitty who first start
ed the rumor of Lord Fanfare's wickedness.
"You've only got to look at him," people
said, "and you 11 see that it s true at a glance.
Why, b dyes his hair and be wears a chin
tuft all very wicked old men dye their hair
and wear chin tufts. He goes to Tattersall's
regularly, he's very thick with theatrical
people, he's a member of the Pandemonium
club, and, to crown his iniquity, he's a direc
tor of a music hall company."
"Why does he dress as if be were a tailor's
advertisement!" said Lady Drumthwackit,
whose penniless daughter Hilda had tried
rery hard indeed for the old gentleman and
bad miserably failed.
"And he paints, ma, I know he does," cried
the artless Hilda, "or bow could be have the
complexion of a youth of 131"
"He has a wonderful complexion," replied
ber mother, "but he needn't have bragged of
it to all the world."
Now, the fact was that Lord Fanfare kept
his connection with the Methuselah pill very
dark indeed; but he had a wonderful com
plexion, and being fond of a joke and liking
to do a stroke of business at the same time,
he had allowed the omnibuses to literally
bristle with his portrait, beneath which was
the following ridiculous advertisement:
"I am C5 today, and yet, thanks to the Me
thuselah pill, my complexion is that of a boy
of 17. Fanfare."
Too cant doubt the word of a peer of the
realm, you know, and the sale of the Methu
el ah pill was vastly increased.
The fact is that Lord Fanfare wore a chin
tuft simply because chin tufts were in fash
Ion when he was a young bachelor in the
guards; he went to Tattersall's simply be
cause he'd gone to Tattersall's all his life; be
was director of a music ball company be
cause be was a large shareholder, and because
be liked the little directorial suppers, and be
cause in music ball matters be was a very
knowing old boy indeed.
Lord Fanfare and his friend and co-direct
or, Mr. David Psalmanezar, were sitting in
the directors' box at the International Pal
ace of Varieties, each with a Brobdingnagian
opera glass in his band, and they were star
ing Intently at the stage, upon which the
three talented sisters, Laura, Cora and Dora
1 larer, were going through their well known
"They're dirt cheap at a hundred a week,"
remarked Mr. David Psalmanezar. "Why.
half the chappies in town are over head and
ears In love with them, and they have to
drink unlimited whiskies and sodas our
whiskies and sodas," be added, wttb a laugh
"to drown their sorrows; and there ain't a
doubt," said Psalmanezar, who was a vulgar
man, with a chuckle, "that they're stunners,
and that Laura's the stunningest of the three;
but 1 don't think I should care for her as
daughter-in-law," continued Mr.' Psalman
ezar. "No, I think I should draw the line there,"
remarked his lordship.
"Then why on earth don't you stop itT re
plied Mr. Psalmanezar.
"Stop it!" cried his lordship. "Stop whatr
"You've always been a good pal to me,
Fanfare," remarked Psalmanezar; "it's no
business of mine, but they do say, Fanfare,
my boy, that Hpindles is going to marry her."
Now, Spindles was a nickname that bad
been bestdwed upon young Qeorge Blowhord,
commonly called Lord Tootle, as the newspa
pers say; bis fellow chappies called him
Spindles behind bis back and to his face, be
cause his principal characteristic was a pair
of very thin, long legs.
"Don't chaff," said his lordship, angrily.
"I'm not chaffing,". replied bi friend and
co-director; "that's the talk here, and I be
lieve it'sa straight tip, old man."
"I'm immensely obleeged to you, I'm sure,"
aid his lordship. He was an old fashioned
nobleman, and be always said obleeged, for
the him reason that be wore a chin tuft not
because of bis natural wickedness, but be
cause it was the fashion in his young days.
And then Lord Fanfare bounced out of the
International Palace of Varieties as though
he'd been a frog Jumping out of a hot frying
Next morning be sent for bis son.
"George," he said, addressing lyird Tootle,
"when I die you'll be a rich man."
"We wont talk about that, father," said
Lord Tootle; and he sold it sincerely, for the
young man. though a "chappie." was fond of
"You know what the position is, George,"
aid Lord Fanfare, very seriously. "Fan
fare castle is entailed; It costs a thousand a
year to keep up. You might, perhaps, let it
for 300, and you caU't sell it. To a poor
man, George, the castle is just a white ele
phant. If you offend me. Tootle," said his
lordship severely, "youH be a pauper. Now,
sir," cried Lord Fanfare, in a tremendous
voice, "what's all this 1 hear about Laura
"Father," said Lord Tootle, in a frightened
whisper, "I've asked her to marry me, and
he's hesitating because I've nothing to settle,
and mine's only a courtesy title."
Then for a full half hour did Lord Fanfare
alternately retreat, bully and argue. .
But George Blowbard, commonly called
Lord Tootle, stood to his gnns.
Then bis father lost his temper. "Out of
my presence, sirl" he cried. "IX lock you
up, I'll apply for a lunacy commission. Dam
me, sirl" added the old man theatrically.
"I'll save you in spite of yourself, or or I'll
perish In the attempt!"
Next afternoon Lord Fanfare called upon
Miss Laura Flarer at her bljoa residence in
The lady received him very graciously.
"Charmed to know you," she said, "charmed
to know you take a cheer."
And then Lord Fanfare took a "cheer" and
carefully studied Miss Flarer through his

with a sigh.
"Doyoul" said his lordship, dryly. "Let

"I'll find the brains and the beauty," said
"Brains aud beauty atnt much to keep

"But your lordship cant go on living for
ever," said the lady, with one of her sweetest
professional smiles. " You're 65, you know,
though you have the complexion of a boy of
17," she added tartly.
"There's nothing like plain speaking," said
Lord Fanfare. "I like you for it," he said.
"Now, what on earth do you want to marry
my son fori"
"I want to be Lady Fanfare," said Laura
Fiarer simply, and she gave her lips a profes
sional bite that made them look ruddier than

said his lordship, "you would, 1 suppose er

"Well, 1 couldn't go on doing 'turns' as

of the bead.
"And have you saved much money out of
your professional earnings, Miss Flarer, may
I ask enough to enable you to maintain my
son in the position to which he bas been ac
customed?" And then the lady laughed, a dear, delight
ful, silvery, unartlflcial, musical, music hall
sort of little laugh. "There's a bill of sale on
the furniture," she said, "and 1 owe Psal
manezar five hundred; but Tootle's a lord.

as follows, in an impassioned tone:

A correspondent of the Muscatine
Journal writes concerning the proposed
improvement of the Illinois levee from
Drury township to New Boston, as fol
lows: Permit me to make a statement of the
proposed levee on the other Bide of
the river to run from a point opposite
this city to New Boston:
The case came up for hearing before
the circuit court at Alcdo on the 19th
inst., when a petition for abandonment
was presented under a clause of the law
that provides that if a petition with the
requisite signatures is presented, the
court may order the abandonment of the
district by the petitioners paying all
costs, expenses and debts, including
witness' and attorney's fees that have ac
crued previous to the time of
abandonment within ten days there
after. In the failure to make
the payments .the district shall
be contiuued as though no petition had
been presented. Upon hearing the peti
tion the court decided that the petition
was not sufficient and by consent twenty-
five days was granted to secure a new one.
As the matter now stands the friends of
the levee feel quite easy. Tbey are re
lieved from all possibility of paying the
costs, for if the work proceeds the whole
district will have to pay it. If the work
is stopped the petitioners for abandon-.
ment will have to pay it.
I would here state that the principal
opposition comes from New Boston,
which in my opinion is a mistake on their
part. .We are well assured from good
sources that if the levee is built from here
to New Boston that a railroad will be
built on it within two years, using our
new bridge to cross the river. We ap
prehend that there ts no one in New Bos
ton that will not admit that a direct rail
road connection with Muscatine would be
of vast advantage to both places.
