At this place at 10 o'clock p. ra. Tues
day tbe 22nd occurred tbe death of Mrs.

and had lived tbe greater part of her life
in this place where she was married to
Andrew Findley in May 1891. Who with
three children survive to mourn her

There was a match game of ball played
at the Andalusia Thistle park on Satur
day between the Andalusia Thistle
Finches and tbe Drury Township Owls.
The game was closely contested until one
of the ''Finches" left sod they run in Doc.
Scott. Wylie. of tbe Owls, kick el about
Ibis saying it was "unfair as it was posi
tively known that Scott carried water
last year for Anson'a pets." This was
finally settled by Scott agreeing not to
play his best. Tbe game then continued
fairly well for tbe Owls, when Kane, of
the "Finches," succeeded in gettug into
a controversy with a young man from
Edgington, who was p'.aving with the
"Owls," and frightened him to such an
extent that he bad to repair t Parker &
Wenka store and get a nickel a worth of
ginger snaps and peanuts to brace np on.
After this the game was easily won by tbe
Finches." We think if the 'Owls'
would soar around again and have it
understood that Scott is not to play, but
may stand near tbe diamond with a bag
of peanuts and ginger snaps to brace up
tbe blgingtcn helpers you might come
out with fewer goose eggs. ,
On Friday evening Miss Hettie Bern
ard Chase is to appetr in her great com
edy success, "TJncle'd Darling," of which
tbe Jackson, Mich., Citizen, says:
Hettie Bernard Chase, with her excel
lent company, played at tbe Hibbard
opera house last night to a good audi
ence. " L nele s Darlinir is particularly
strong in plot, is bright with music and
sparkling with humor and thoroughly
enjoyable, in fact no better play has been
seen Here in years.
Miss Chase is a most charming actress.
and deserves all tbe nice things said about
her by the newspapers wherever she has
appeared. Tbe JacksonUns were highly
pleased with her, and applauded her with
enthusiasm. Her suppport was good.
Mr. Cassidy, as the Chinaman, was a
favorite and came in for a large chare of
applause. Tbe play was clean, witnout
a suggestion ot vulgarity, and -it is a
great pity that such attractions, with
such plays, do not come oftener.
The emphatic hit that was scored by
"Tbe Stowaway" in last season insures it
a cordial greeting when it reappears
on Friday, Oct. 8 at tbe Burtis opera
house, Davenport. It returns this year
with more elaborate scenery and a much
stronger cast than was seen here pre
viously. The play, as local theatre-goers
are well aware, is replete with stirring
situations, startlingclimaxes, and through
it all there ripples a vein of the most re
fined and exquisite comedy. It is un
doubtedly one of the most pronounced
successes produced In this country or in
England in recent years.

Secretary Porter's report shows the
road to be in a most prosperous condi
tion with a constantly increasing traffic
to accommodate which a new electric
motor is needed. During the past year
the ro&d has carried 947,606 passengers,
the fares amounting to 8ll.260.C2.
This is an increase of 64.585 passengers
over last year or a trifle over 33 per
cent gain, while the average daily re
ceipts have been increased 37.56 per day.
During the past year the company has
greatly improved Prospect park and has
now one of tbe finest pleasure resorts to
be found anywhere. This with the large
amount of building which is going on
along the line insures the road a con
stantly increasing patronage. -The di

day evening when they will elect officers
for the next year. - '
