SUXOL AND NANCY HANKS.
Haw They Taelr - Names-Hart
The wonderful performance of Sunol
recently in beating the record of Maud S.
demonstrated the , wisdom of her breeder
in selecting a name for the phenomlnal
mare. Sunol is the name of a hypno'ic
drug which puts people to sleep. Ia the
slang of the p rife-ring Sunol has certainly
put all other horses to sleep.
Her supreme performance, however,
bids fair to be short lived, as that other
famous mare, Nancy Hanks, will soon
be sent against the record, with cood
prospects of success. There is more cfa
story connected with the naming of this
remarkable anim tl. Sbe was bred by
Hart Boswell, of Lexington, Ky., who
has always been a great admirer of Lin-
ooln and his family. When the filly be
gan to develop under his careful training
and be saw that she was something extra.
he paid the Lincoln family the highest
compliment in his power. He named his
favorite after Lincoln's mother.
"Who knows?" be said to his wire at the
time. " By so doing I may perpetuate the
name of a great and noble woman "
He has certainly done so, for Nancy
Hanks will go down in history as one of
the equine wonders of the day. Hot irons
would not force Mr. Boswell to tell what
J. M. Forbts paid for this animal. Peo
ple of Lexington know better than to ask
him. One of the conditions of the sale
was that be should never divulge the price.
He is a man whose determination can
never be shaken.
Several years ago he had a quarrel with
a prominent man of Lexington and told
him that he would never speak to him
again. He never has, although the two
have frequent business relations with each
Mr. Boswell's admiration for Lincoln
dates from the time of his first canvass
for the presidency. Cassius M. Clay was
then publishing a republican paper in
Lexington, which was loo radical to suit
the inhabitants. He was informed that
if he issue! another number he would be
'I shall issue my paper tomorrow as
usual," was the reply, "and, moreover,
will head it abolition."
He did so and a mob altacktd the of
fice. In the melee which followed sev
eral were killed, one of ihem being stab
bed with a bowie knife by Clay himself.
Boswell was one of the six men who de
fended the cffice. He thinks that Lin
coln inherited his great qualities from bis
mother. Nancy Hanks.
The wonderful spectacular comedy
drama, "777," will be presented at liar
par's theatre Thursday evening. The
production comes with the best kind of
endorsement with the appended notice
from the Chicago Herald as a sample:
Heroism and criun are the leidiog ele
ments in A. W Fremont's "comedy
melodrama" 777," now running at Hav
lin's theatre, and the two go baiid in
hand throughout the piece until the in
evitable happy ending. The author,
Joseph D. Clifton, has devoted the var
ious scenes and situations with a cabinet
maker's skill, and cemented them with
originality, the result being a well con
structed and good play. Ia the first act
an old man is murdered and robbed, and
his son, the hero of the play, is accused
of the crime by bis sweetheart, who mis
takes him for the rest assassin, who is her
rejected Buitor and the hero's bitter rival.
The innocent man is sent to prison for
life. He escapes in the second act, and
the three remaining acts are devoted to
the running down and unmasking of the
real murderer and proving the innocence
of the hero. The company engaged in
the production of the piece is a capable
one, the leading roles being in excellent
hands. The character of George Mal
comb, the wronged hero, is personated by
Alfred W. Fremont, a well known "lead
ing man." He plays the part earnestly
and intelligently. List evening he re
ceived several curtain calls. The audi
ence was enthusiastic.
The "Pearl of Pekin" with its rollick
ing fun, pleasing music, gorgeous cos
tumes and pretty girls, will make merry
at the Burtis opera house, Davenport, to
Unit for Viuagn.
Valentine Nold has filed through his
attorney, John Looney, a suit for $5,000
damages against Henry Meyer, who
keeps a boarding bouse on First avenue.
The case grows out of some trouble be
tween the two men on Oct. 7, at which
time Nold was a boarder there, and on
that day, he paid what he claimed was
all that was due Meyer- The latter in
sisted, however, that it was not enough,
and the two got into an altercation which
resulted in blows, and Nold, who is quite
old, claims that Meyer dragged him about
tie room, kicking and pounding him, and
finally, it is alleged, administered to
Nold a vicious kick on the ankle, from
the effects of which he may be a cripple
the remainder of his life, and for which
he now aske the above amount of damages.

It is rumored that C. W. Williams, the
great Independence horseman, has be
come disgusted with the treatment he has
received at the Independence at the bands
of the cranks, and has promised to move
away kite-shaped track, horses and aU.
Davenport horsemen are after him,
and it is understood that if they will offer
him an inducement In the shape of $50,-
000, be will put 50.000 with it, and
make Davenport a great racing center
Two gentlemen of that city have offered
to subscribe 15.000 each, and there is
much interest manifested by other horse
men of that town. Des Moines is said
to be in the field with an offer which Mr.
Williams also has under consideration .
Mr. Williams is said to favor this local -ity
and it would certainly be advanta
geous to bim to come here. The eslab
lisom?nt of a race course at Davenport
would make it accessible to 60,000 peo
ple at all times, with the railroad advan
tages which Rock Island has and of which
he would have the advantage he could
draw many times the crowd on the occa
sion of great events on the turf that he
can at Independence, which he has made

Chair h Entertainments
The banquet given by the bachelors of
the M. E. church at the church parlors
lsst evening was largely attended and
prov d a very unique event. The ban
quet was preceeded by a musical pro
gramme given in the auditorium, which
was also highly appreciated, a number
of instrumental duets and vocal solos bes
ing excellently rendered. At the close of
the musical entertainment the doors to
the patlors were thrown open, and a
large number assembled around the
board and enjoyed a royal banquet.
St. Joseph's fair and festival had a
large attendance last evening. A num
ber of new displsyshave been added, and
as an unusual amount of interest is being
manifested, it will no doubt prove one of
the most successful fairs ever held.

Many people suffer from in
activity of the kidneys, and
they feel out of sorts; they do
not know why. A slight atten
tion to this matter will restore
them to perfect health, whereas
if they reglect it and then at
tempt a long course of treat
ment they are apt to provoke
serious trouble. For this rea
son Reid's German Cough and
Kidney Cure is the very thing
that they need. It stimulates
the kidneys to action, carries off
the morbid matter, and relieves
the system from the poison that
wou!d otherwise go into the
blood. For trouble of this sort
it is without an equal, and is
highly recommended by the
best medical anthority. It is

Rev. II H Fairall, D. D . editor of the
Iowa Methodist, says editorially, "We
haye tested the merits of Ely's Cream
Balm, and believe that, by a thorough
course of treatment, it will cure almost
every case of catarrh. Ministers, a a
class are sffltcted with head and throat
troubles, and catarrh seems more preva

Ely's Cream Balm too higbly."
I used Ely's Cream Balm for dry catarrh.
