Hamiton, Oct. 10. Members of the
Methodist church at Hampton held a
basket sociable at their public hall on
the evening of Tuesday the 6ih, to which
everybody was invited. The many woo
attended, old, middle aged and young, had
a rery pleasant and enjoyable cveniDg.
Music, tableau and cocversa ion caused
the hours to fly rapidly away. The en
tertainment added (20 to the church
finances. Henry Wendell acted efficient
ly as master of ceremonies. The pro
gramme of exercises opened with a choir
of voices, most happily rendering, "Be.
hold, the Fields are White!" This was
followed with prayer by It :v J Q Ad
ams. Then came a duet by the young
Misses Vernie and E la Tyler from Com
mancbe, followed by the beautiful scene,
'Pledged with Wine," and of the many
characters shown in this piece, the chief
character of the "Bride," personated by
Miss Nellie Corrin, was acted in a most
charming and effective manner. Follow
ing this, "Maud Muller," was illustrated
in four acts by tableau and music. The
music was on the organ and vioHo by the
sisters.Misses Etta and Minnie Schafer.of
Oeneseo. Then were presented two brid
al scenes, by tableau showing, "The
Bridal," and the "Waning of the Honey
moon." These were most rapturously
received and applauded. The playing
ended with a pantomime of "Saturday
Night." This was so energetically en
cored that its repetition scarcely satisfied
the amused and appreciative audience.
Watertown was represented by the
gracious presence of Mrs. Robinson, Mica
Gussie McVeal and Miss Etta Ooebin.
Others of the charming young lad? par
ticipants who carried baskets, reaidintr at
Hampton, were Mses L'da Aultman, L i

Tonight at Harper's theatre will be
presented that highly, entertaining and
successful comedy, "The Devil's Eiitor."
It is a springhtly musical farce, which
serves to introduce the specialties of some
clever people. The "plot" hinges upon
the fi irtation of a country editor the
office "devil's" editor, whence the name
and a prohibition advocate, with a breezy
soubrette and a society buu. Arourd
this quartette, reinforced by tie "devii"
and a watering place landlord of Mile

Joseph Flynn and his partner, Frank
B. Sheridan, are the leading comedians.
the former in a dual character of a police
man and the Irish landlord, and the latter
as the printing offi;e devil. Alice Harri
son, as Miss Cuhman, the soubrette, is
vivacious and sparkling as ever. Fratk
Doane, as the Deyii's Editor, displays
abundant energy and voice, without
horse plays. The piece is replete with
songs, dances and ludicrous situations.
Jarbeau, famous Jarbeau, is to be seen
at the Burtis at Davenport this evening.
The mere announcement of the appear

ought to be sufficient to attract a large
The engagement of the original New
York company in Branson Howard's play
of "Shenandoah" will be at the Burtis
next Thursday. If half of the words of
praise that have been bestowed upon this
piece are true, it is one of the greatest of
modern dramas put upon the stage in
many years. The performances have
created something of a sensation in other
cities and the press has teemed with laud
atory notices. It is Bronaon Howard's
best work, it is said, acd that means that
it is a sterling production. "Shenan
doah." will bs given at the Burtis, Daven
port, with every attention to detail, and
the performances will be just as they
were in New Yoik.
The Akoub has spoken of the possibil
ity of the inauguration of a svs'.em ol
weather whistles. It will be a novel sys
tern to say the least . Already the pria
cipal tailroads of the country have adop
ted the plan of disseminating prediction!
by displaying signal fligs on trains, and
the bureau hopes to extend this system
by having locomotives give the signals b;
means of their signals. Prof. Harring
ton, the chief of the weather bureau, has
arranged a system of whistle combin
tions by means of which persons living
at a distance from the railroads can
ceive the forecasts. By repeating each
combination a few times, with an inter
val of 10 seconds between, possibilities o
error in reading the forecasts will b
avoided, such as may arise from' variable
winds or failure to bear the warn inc.
