Lew Docksiader's minstrels will appear
at the Burtia opera bouse at Davenport
tomorrow in two entertainments, a spe
cial holiday matinee in the afternoon, and
evening performance. Most everybody
will want to take advantage of this oppor
tunity end no doubt the house will be
crowded to its greatest capacity to wel
come the acknowledged leader otall min
strel comedians. Lew Dockstader has an
nnctious, spontaneous way of saying and
singing funny things. Bis humor and
songs impress no one as a labored effort.
He juBt bubbles and babbles fun and it
is infectious fun that makes one hunch
his neighbor that be to may be alive to
the points and they are not points that
need sharpening, llis q iaint and happy
sallies are always greeted with rounds of
applause and recall after recall. Tbia

for his numerous admirers and will appear
as "The Modern Beau Brummel," in a
brand ntwand original single specialty.
His company in all particulars is thor
oughly first-class and one of the largest
and most expensive minstrel shows ever
The renowned spiritualist, Anna Eva
Fay, will give one of her wonderful enter
tainments at Harper's theatre tomorrow
night. It was in no sensational manner
that Mif 8 Fay was received upon her re
turn from Europe. In answer to a ques
tion from a press representative recently,
relative to Miss Fay's mediumistic
powers, she replied to ihe effect that she
claims to incline towards spiritualism,
but of the source of her power and its
adaptation she was not able to fathom
them, no more than electricians can tell
the origin of their power. Miss Fay will
doubtless be well received, as she was
five or more years ago, before her de
parture for Europe.
At liar pei 'a theatre next Monday even
ing will be presented the sensational

artists of ability. -New York Dav by

special mention, and we lack space to
praise the delightful acting, singing and
