An audience in numbers and apprecia

present at narper's theatre on the pre

evening. The play is handsomely
mounted, the scenic effects being the
most elaborate and reali.tic that have
been seen in Rock Island this season.
This is particularly true of the marine
scene, where an encounter occurs between
divers and where one of tbe divers strug

The eel is very unpopular with many
people, hut like many unpopnl.ar things he
improves with acquaintance. In form he
is long, slender and graceful. In color,
dark green itliove and yellowish white be
low. Many believe that there are two dis
tinct varieties, the salt and the fresh water
eel, bnt I am inclined to think that like all
other fishes the eel partakes much of the
nature of his surroundings. A long sum
mer vacation in a pond or brook renders
him darker in color, ai d daily feasting on
landlocked delicacies M&aV.r: him more
Just so codfish take on the color of their
habitat gray when on muddy Itottom,
bright retl when living among kelps and
gay colored marine plants. I lieliere, too,
that the eel often forgets to retnrn to salt
water, but never breeds elsewhere, for I
have never seen baby eels in brooks or
ponds. I hnve known them to le taken
every month in the year in the same local
ities. Some say that half the eel spend
the winter in fresh water, coming flown in
spring, and that the other half go np for
the summer. G. W. Singer in Lewiston
"1 understand," said the Growler, "that
the lorguette ia going oat of fashion, and
I am delighted if the rumor is true. There
is nothing in thin world that can turn a
sweet little woman into a supercilious
snob so easily as the lorgnette. They
make me feel uncomfortable wherever I
see them. When I see a woman looking
at me through tbe lorgnette I feel aa if my
clothes were nine or ten sizes too large for
me; I experience the sensation which I im
agine the victim of a hypnotist feels when
the eye of the master is fixed upon him.
Tbe lorgnette is a success only as a dis
courager of mashers, and is, so far, to be
commended; but when it tackles self re
specting manhood and makes him dwin
dle, it becomes little short of criminal,
and should be suppressed by fashion if
not by law." New York Sun.

w hen ho w: tryinir faithfully and with

civil service ami tor the army, that it was
a very difilcult matter to get the square
pep in the round holes and tbe round pegs
in the square ones. And it is just this
difficulty w hich confronts the writer for
periodicals and magazines. No matter
how experienced he may be he will often
fail before he brings his commodity to the
market which waits for it.
But editors do not wish to be cruel or
hardhearted, however much they may seem
so to tbeunspurred and unfledged writer.
The very liest and most famous of them
