"The Telegram" was presented by the
Swan-Moore Dramatic company at Har
pei'o theatre last evening. The company
is strong in all respects and gives a re
markably clever performance. Tenight
the comedy, "Musette," made famous by
Lotto, will be presented and deserves a
In "The Little Maverick," which the
ever popular Maggie Mitchell presents for
the first time on Saturday evening at the
Burtis opera bouse, Davenport, she plays
the role of a wild, untaught young crea
ture, who, a true woman at heart with a
great contempt for hypocrisy and pre
tence of all kinds, but an entire feminine
desire to shine in society as much as the
niece of her Texan uncle, who is all for
form. The same care and intelligence
which always distinguishes the reduc
tions of Miss Mitchell's plays, will be
noticeable when "The Little Maverick"
sees light for the first time here on Satur
The event of the season in tri-city the
atrical circles will be the appearance at
Harper's theatre next Monday evening of
America's greatest actress, Miss Clara
Morris. The play chosen by Miss Mor
ris fur our theatre-goers is "Renee de
Moray." It is a comparatively new ad
dition to her repertoire, but her perfect
conception of the character of Renee is
brought out with a fidelity and a power
that offers a new revelation of her gens
ius. Seldom is so good an opportunity
to see really great acting offered to the
theatre-goer. The role offers a wide
scope for Miss Morris' intense emotional
abilities, and her sufferings awaken at
once the deepest sympathy, while one
yields almost insensibly to the pathos and
sufferings endured by an actress whose
powers of compelling tears are so excep
tional. On Tuesday, March 1, the Bostoniaas,
comprised of the same cast which ap
peared in Davenport last season, will
again hold the boards at the Burtis op
era bouse, aid the opera loving people
will have an opportunity of seeing that
grand production of "Robin Hood" again
which hag set all America in an uproar.

Catarrh :Cant be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on tbe blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
