Without commenting upon the nature
of the shows, tbe bills themselves would
not compare as far as obscenity is con
cerned. with the displays made in adver
tising what were considered first-class
shows at Davenport the past winter, the
theatre having not only monopolized th e
Rock Island boards, but covered them
with what they pleased without obiection
being made. There is no disposition to
criticise or disparage an effort that looks
to the promotion of morality, but it is dif
ficult to discern why there should be dis
crimination between the advertisements
of a show that lays no particular claim
to being moral and one that claims it is
fit for the most fastidious to witness and
yet its displays are no more refining or

A rhool Principal in Tronnle.
A lively interest is being taken at Port
Byron in a cise that has developed there
in the puOlic schools. The trouble is
over the principal, Prcf Davis, chastis
ing Miss Ora Spaid. a 16 -year old pupil,
whereupon her father had Prof. Davis ar
rested and the trial was expected to come
up for hearing at Rapids City today.
It is alleged that the principal, after
reminding the young lady that she was
transgressing the rules of the school,
walked back to where she sat and slapped
her in tbe face, and it is to this that her
father objects. The citizens have taken
sides, some of whom have procured an
attorney to defend the teacher.

that the coming week will witness the in
