HALLS AMI InSCES
A gay throng it was that gathered at
Armory hall on New Year's eve to at end
the dance given ty the 0tkdle club,
whose parties are bicomiog so popular of
late. Over 100 ligh .-hearted people were
present lo dance out tbo old year, and a
merrier gathering of young people it
would be hard to And. Bleuer's orches
tra furnished excellent music, and every
thing combined to make the evening one
of unbounded pleat ure.
The complimentary ball, to which the
friends of the Rodman Rifles bad been
invited, which was to have occurred at
Armory hall last night was postponed on
account of the severe weather. It will
probably be given in the near futu-e.

DI.NNKR AT 1IIE FIRST CHURCH.
The ladies of the First M. E. church
served a most palatable spread from 1 to
3 yesterday afternoon at the church, and
despite the incl. mency of the weather
they were liberally patrouiz:d. The
menu was of a substantial nature, and
when the final course of plum pudding
was concluded a self-satisfied air seemed
to pervade the assembly. The service
was excellent, and the whole affair ably
managed. This was the i-econd New
Year's dinner given by the Methodist la
dies under unfavorable circumstances,
but, nevertheless, their efforts have been
crowned with success, as the receipts
from their entertainments will diminish
the church debt lo an appreciable extent.
The favorable impression produce I on

THE Altqua ..3ATUHDAY. JAttUAUY
A rumor became prevalent in the city
yesterday afternoon which spreidrapi 1 ,
to the tffect that E P Reynolds had
died at Los Angeles. Cal. Naturullv the
announcement was received everywhere
with sorrow and regret, and much anz
ious inquiry was made for particulars.
All that culd be learned yesterday was
that a dispatch had com? to the R ock
Island Sivings bank bearing the sad in
telligence, and it was not until investiga
tion was made this morning that the facts
were made, known. There it was ascer
tained that a message had come to E. P.
Reynolds, Jr., now at Wvmore to wrom
it was foi warded. The n essage was
first sent to Mr. R ynolds' house, and to a
citizen, who asked as to its ntture
the messenger slated that Mr. Reyco'ds
wns dead. And thus the rum r spruad.
While all attempts to leiru anything as
to the true nature of the telegram or as
to whether it referred to Mr. Reynolds or
not have ben met with a li t refusal on
the part of the local manager
of the Western Union to impart
any information whatever, except that
the message came from somewhere in
Kansas. The Argus is satisfied that it
must have come from Irving, Kan.,
where Mr. Reynolds had a brother, aud
who beyond question is the one referred
to. Atall events The Arous is happy
in announcing that Rock Inland's public
spirited citizen still lives.

A prominent sini-r who Iipkhu his
career in givinsr concerts about the coun
try had some-ixtraoriliriary experiences
in towns where such entertainments
were of rare occurrence. One nijjht,
when be wn persistently applauded, lie
returned towing a soond sons, but was
surprised by a stentorian voice from the
"Oh, we don't want not bin new! Sing
the fust piece rijjht over n-.fi n !"
At another time tin.- audience was so
wildly appreciative that it refused to
consider tiie concert at an end, and
clamored loudly f.,r just one more." It,
was given, au-1 then another demanded.
Patience failed the t.rngor at this point,
and he begged his manager to go before
the curtain and state that he really was
nnable to sing any more. And thus was
the stateuieut worded:
"Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Martin
can't sing no more tonight. He can't,
honest. His wind's give out!"'
A similar story comes from another
singer who could not refrain from tell
ing it, although her seven-year-old niece,
a fastidious little lady, prononnced it
"not a very pretty story, auutie!"
The lady had lieen taken ill after eat
ing some decoction of ancient lobster at
the hotel, and sent her manager word
that she really could not sing. He ac
cordingly appeared before the disap
ointed andience and announced:
"Ladies and gentlemen. Miss Mer
riam ain't here tonight. She couldn't
come. She aiu't in fit circumstances to
sing. Her stomach's troubling her!"

visiting relatives and friends. At Peca

the grip and was obliged to provide his

scribes it as follows: "I made a cone of a
large paper, having an opening in the
small end. Through this cone I collected
the hot air escaping from a warm fire,
holding the little end of the cone to the
mouth. I breathtd in through the mouth
and out through the nose. This enabled
me to cough and breathe with ease, as

while the salty flavor greatly reduces tte
inflammation. This brought me won
