The fair will be owned hv n ulHrmi
of welcome by Mayor McConochie fol
lowed by remarks by other speakers
Tonight at Harper's theatre will be
given the funny comedy, "Town Lots,"
of which a Du'uth exchange says:
"Town Lots" was greeted with a high
ly appreciative audience at Opera hall
last night. The play is of the farce com
edy order and abounds in many mirth
provoking situations. The play is a sa
tire on real estate boom?, and Is really a
refreshing comedy, bright, spicy, musical
and notable for its lack of chestnuts.
The audience which witnessed its produc
tion last night was a representative one,
one that knows a good performance when
it sees it. and when the curtain dropped
at tbe close of the last act the sentiment
expressed among the auditors was of but
one accord. "It was great." Jay Sims, as
Culpeper Meek, made all of the part there
was in it, and the play gave him an op
portunity of exhibiting his unquestion
able talent as a comedian. Miss Eloise
Willard played several parts, in a man
ner creditable to herself and the author.
I have reached the conclusion that
American ladies are the best vocalists.

A PRICELESS WORK.

Paul V. Kersch. editorially connected
with the Volks-Zeitung, a well-known
bibliophile, has recently come into pos
session of a curiosity . It is one of two
known copies of a volume of poems and
epigrams by Frederich von Logau, en
titled "Salomon von Golaw, deutscher
Sinngedichte, drey Tausend, Breslau,
1654." It has never been ascertained
how large an addition of this work was
printed, but it may be assumed that as
the author was poor, and his name dur
ing his lifelime but little known outside of
his 8ilesian home, the edition was never
a large one.
But the fate of the edition is better
known. No sooner bad the work made
its appearance than all the powers in the
Church of State combined to suppress it,
and all copies that could be obtained were
burnt. No doubt its anonymous author,
who at that time held a position of trust
at the court of Duke Ludwig, of Brieg.
had be been known, would have shared
the same fare. His book attacked with
unprecedented freedom the corruption of
the aristocracy and clergy of bis time,
and scourged without remorse the un -bridled
passion and moral looseness
that pervaded the society of Germany in
his day. Logau died a few months after
his book was published. and for a hundred
years his work was lost to the world. Io
1759, Lessing discovered a copy of it.
and recognizing its literary merit, with
his friend Rammler proceeded to issue
an edition. However, the censorship of
that time was as lavish in its excisions
that of the three thousand poems hardly a
quarter reached the printer. Eitner in
ISC 9, and Simrock in 1874 met with sim
ilar difficulty. Owing to the circumstan
ces and the extreme scarcity of the orig
inal edition of the book, one of the found
ers of a new period in the history of mod
ern High German literature has remained
almost unknown; and yet he consigned
to his work valuable material for ths his
torian of the epoch of revenge in the
Thirty Years' war.
Mr. Kersch has an extensive library of
rare books in Vienna, and he recently
sent for the novelty described in order to
show it to Hon. Ben T. Cable, who, as is
well knon is a'so fond of works of th is
II M. Stanley' Le are.
Wherever Henry M. Slanley has lec
tured he has had crowded houses and in
some places people have been turned
away for want of standing room. His
new lecture, the one he is to give here, is
said to be the best. Those who have
heard both lectures are unanimously of
this opicioa. Tri-city people are fortu
nate in thus being a tie to see and hear
Mr. S'.anlay and this great fortune should
be duly appreciated by giving him a
packed house. The prices are f be some
what ljwtr than elsewhere, and in this
our people are to be congratulated. Tbe

A joke in which a Moline servant nirl
and Rev. Samuel Freuder, the rabbi of
the Jewish congregation of Davenport
and Rock Island, are involved, is too
good to keep. Dr. Freuder occupied the
pulpit of the Unitarian church in Moline
recently. He was to take dioner with a
family there, and tbe lady approached her
servant girl with instructions to do her
very best, as they were to have a Jewish
rabbi for dinner. "You will have to
cook it yourself, ma'am, as I never cooked
one ia my life," was the girl's reply. A

The postmaster's idea evidently is that
people who have reason for complaint
should let their voice be beard now, or
else forever held their peace.
