' For some time past W. D. Fetersen, of
the firm of J. H. C. Petersen's Sons, of
Davenport, bas been suspecting two
women who frequented the store, as be
ing shop-lifters, and yesterday his sus
p'cions were confirmed, by the srrest and
conviction of both women. About 1
o'clock yesterday afternocn. Floor-walker
Claus Kraser noticed a woman takiog
goods from under her shawl and placing
them in a box, in a suspicious manner,
and he at once questioned her and opened
the box. Then the two at once confessed
and the patrol was sent for. The boxes
that they had were begged from the
clerks of the underwear department.
At the police station they gave various
names, bnt to a Times reporter they gave
the names of Mrs. Margaret Xesbit and
Mrs. Matilda Kendall, both of LeQlalre,
the former being the grandmother of
Newton Nesbit, who was some time ago
shot by his wife, and Mrs. Kendall is her
daughter, and the wife of a reliable man
of that tewn. They plead guilty and At
torney Banley asked the leniency of the
court by consent of Mr. Petersen, and the
pair were fined $6 50 each and discharged
Mr. Hanley assisting them financially.
The goods amounted to considerable in
bulk but of a cheap class.
Speaking cf the performance of "An
American Boy" to appear at Bartis opera
house, Davenport, Monday, Oct. 10, the
Chicago Dai'y Herald of Oct. 8 says:
"The company is drawing large bouses
at the People's theatre. The play is
rather an entertaining one aud represents
a type of character new to the stage. The
''American Boy" is impersonated by Wiile
McDermott who portrays the manly high
spirited youth in a happy vein, and in a
style that is destined to make bim a favor
ite. A large number of specialties in
troduced in the piece were well received.
The songs are mostly new and constitute
one of the principil features, thi chorus
being especially capable."
James T. Powers, an established favor
ite returns to give his laughter-provoking
' Straight Tip" at the Burtis opera bouse
Tuesday evening. Pronounced as the
hit of this horsey farce-comedy last sea
son, is subsequently proved even more
popular in New York, where it was kept
contijuouslv on the stage of one theatre
from January to June. Next it scored a
summer season run to big houses in Chi
cago. Man j changes and Improvements
have ocen made in the "Tip, therefore it
will be seen this time in better shape than !

The hacdnomest and most artistic cf
all the exhibits at the great annual fair of
the American Institute ioien 1 ork this
year is that of Walter Baker & Co , the
oldest and one of the largest manufactur
ers of cocoa and chocolate in the world.
The utmost taste is evinced in the con
struction of the booth, which is a picture
in white and gold; while the templing
display of goods pleases tbe eyes and ar
rests the steps ot all visitors to the fair.
Sample cups . of W. Baker
& Co.'s Breakfast Cocoa are
served free to all by two pretty
young ladies atlirtd in the exact costume
of Liotard's famous portrait of "La Btlle
Chocolatiere, (adopted many years ago
as the trade mark of this firm) pale blue
satin gowns, waists of old gold satin, and
lace caps ot pink and blue. The evolu
tion of tbe product is also shown, from
immense cocoa p.ds containing the bean
to the exquisitely colored powder which
is so familiar to the housewife, and, when
served at the breakfast table, so grateful
to the most fastidious palate.
Taken altogether, it is a beautiful ex
hibit and one which deservedly receives
the admiring attention ot every visitor to
Anrriraa Ft Sttorli dhow.
The American fat stock, horse, poul
try and dairy shows will open to the pub
lic Nov. 11-21 i ext. at the ixposition
building. Chicago. There is every reason
to believe that tbiB greatest of all shows
of this character will be successful this
seapon. judging from the number of in
quiries concerning it, coming from nearly
every portion of the union and C.tocd
Already applications for stal!s and pens
for catile, bcrsee, sheep and hoes are be
ing made to the secretary. .
Nearly $12 000 is offered in regular and
special premiums, which certainly ought
to attract a large exhibit in every depart
ment. The board of agriculture is very
much encouraged since it has been defi
nitely settled tha. there will be no other
horse show in Chicago this fall, and are
determined to mike tbe coming show a
preeminent success as compared with any
other similar shows held heretofore un
der its au-p ces.
A program ne of special attractions of
unusual merit will be given, both after
noon and evening, for the entertainment
