A NOVEL WATER TRIP.
A Ride the Wave ft' rum the Monree
cf the Miaat-sippl ti Ita Slaath.
The Chicago Herald tells ot a novel
trip that will be made bjProf. Bium and
his manager. Colonel Charles Wilson.
When arrangements can be male d ay will
go to the head waters of the Mississippi
river, Lake It ask a, Minnesota, and follow
its course on the wbeel to New O.-leans
and the Gulf of Mexico. The distance
is about 8.500 miles and they esimate
that this can be covered in about 38 or
40 days, if not prevented by storms or
unrorseen accidents. Tbis course will
lead them through several lakes in north
em Minnesota. About the onlv difficult
or dangerou3 passage to be mvie is probi
ably the rapids above St. Pju', about
oil miles, bat it is thought the wheel
will safely pass through them. Britf
stops for supplies will be made atBrain
ard, Minn., Sauk Ripids, 8:. Paul. La
Crosse, Dubuque. Rock Island, Davec
port, Keokuk, at . I.nu.8, Cairo, Mem
phis, Vicksburg, Natch?z, Bateo Rouge
and New Orleans, and it is possible the
trip may be extended to Cedar Ceys.Fla.,
across the gulf about 350 miles. This
will be the first trip of the kiad on rtcord
and, if successful, will demonstrate the
practicability af the aquacvcle.
Col. Wilson will write sketches of the
trip for publication, and the progress of
the voyage will no doubt be watched
modern Street Car Kapeitneen.
"Experience has taught me," remarked
a Burlington citizen to a reporter for the
Gazette of that city, "that there are two
important rules to be observed in riding
on a street car. Oae of these is, not to
board the car before it stops, and the
other is. to stay aboard until it stops.
There is no use of a min going to work
to mop up a public street with his clothes.

other thing, if the car goes by You. hav
ing failed to comprehend your signal, it
rs just as well to swallow the insult and
find a place to camp until the few rein
utes expire. Time was when a man
could chase a street car in this town with
a feeling that he bad a sure thing. He
could overhaul it on his hands and knees
with a degree of ease that made him feel
ashamed of his best advantage. But now
it is different The advantage is vice
"As a rule a man never feels so much
like chasing an electric car as when he is
running after it, and he is never more
fully satisfied that he cannot catch it as
he is when he stops. The only hope for
a man in pursuit of an electric car is that
the car will be obliged to stop and put off
a cripple who has to be carried out. or
perhaps to stop and wait for a woman
who has signalled the car from the wrons
crossing and who has to overcome her
mad spell and get across the street. In
either of these cases, however, the hope
for the pusuer is very scant, and the car
is likely to go singing merrily away just
as he sets close enouph to smrii the
brimstone on its heels."
George C. Staley's "Royal Pass" was
presented to a fair audience at Harper's
theatre last evening. The scenes of the
play are mostly laid in Russia and there
are many realistic spectacular effects,
chief among which is the appearance of
two steam locomotives. Mr. Staley
shows himself to be a dialect comedian of
splendid ability and be also sings ' well.
The support throughout was good.
On Tuesday evening next we are to
haye the great Lyceum theatre success,
The Old. Old Story." The New York
Mail and Express of March 10 last, said:
At the Lyceum theatre, when the
audience called for the authors of tte
play, a highly striking effect was pro
duced by the appearance of Walter C.
Bellows and Beojamin F. Roeder who in
proportions, color, manner and facial ex.
preesion seem like clever imitations of
DeMille and Belasco. The sudden fancy
that these gentlemen might have been
"made up" to impersonate the authors of
"The Wife." "The Charity Ball." and
"Men and Women, has a singular en
dorsement in the play itself, which in its
personages, its cast, ite theme, its com
plications, its buinor. was, like the dramat
ists, a reflection of Belasco and De Mille

and above all. actable The acts ere

sequence of b'ief acenes, in which the
heroine, loving one man, promises to
marry the lover of her childhood to save
him and her guardian from financial ru n,
and in which her confession of love for
the newcomer is overhead by the ruined
man, who silently locks himself in his
room and commits suicide, is impressive,
admirably conceived, wrought out and
acted, and fulfills as well as anything
