Koijert Koehlkr, City Clerk.
Bill Nye's "Cadi" will be the bill at
the Burtia this evening. The St. Louis
people had it a few weeks ago, and this
is what the Globe-Democrat said of it
The "Cadi" has been an unfailinrr
sour'e of amusement to the patrons of
the Grand opera house all week. Those
who have gjne expecting to see a farce
comedy have been disappointed, for with
tne onainality of genious Bill Nve has
conceived an entertainment largely apart
from the usual offerings in the line of
1 aht amusement. The nresent cotr.-
p ny is a very good one. No ex
travagant claims are made for any of its
membi ra. nn.l they are easily equal to the
varied demands made UDon them. The
audiences have taken very kindly to the
'Cadi' colored quartette; who. as a
nightly thing, have received from four to
half a dozen encores. Tbe plantation
songs have been greatly admired. Miss
Jennie G ldwaite's song in the last act
and William F. Mack's inaudible and
grotesque piano accompaniment have
made a bit Cadi Dustan's Prodigal Son
song comes in for much applause.

Some I'sea of Sawdust.
There is a popular slant; expression,
"Out for the sawdust," which will apply
to a peculiar business very little known
even in New York. It is sawdust, and the
man who is out. for it makes a daily trip
frow the sawmills somewhere across the
Hudson or on the Brooklyn shore and
brings it in barre ls for consumption in the
metropolis. It retails for twenty-five cents a
barrel here. The most of this sawdust
goes to the butcher shops, where it is
spread over t he floor frith every morning
and emits a sweet, piney smell and ab
sorbs the bad odors and droppings. Much
of it goes to eld fashione-d chophonses
that still preserve the old time sawdust
floor, while the big fashionable hotels use
considerable for cleaning purposes, it be
ing moistened and sprinkled on the tiled
floors before they are swept, thus laying
the dust without wetting the marble,

doing with all those clothes?"
"Taking them to the renovating estab
lishment around the corner, sir." respond
ed the carrier promptly and politely.
"You're just the man I'm looking for,"
said the boarder; "take this coat of mine
along," and he removed his coat and gave
it to the man, with his card.
