lie Tk Advamcce or Ills Dnty to
Kxtrnd the Hospitality of l he
4'itr to Attack and Ridt
enie the church.
The people who attended the enter
tainment given tit Harper's theatre last
evening in honor of ihe visiting directors
of the Modern Wodmen of America
were given a feature not contemplated in
the programme. The appearance of the
executive of the citj supposed to be the
chief host of the occasion, extending the
hospitality of the city, going out of his
way to attack, insult acd ridicule the
church, and dwelling on a subject irrele vant
entirely to Wocdcraft was not in the
highest sense relishirg or gratifying to the
people of the city. In fac, the mayor's
rasping utterences were at times so
grossly foreign to the order ot the evening
or his duty in delivering tbe welcoming
address that had he been a Woodman,
much of what he st. id would have been
eliminated as having no possible refer
ence to the order. The mayor started out
very nicely, and as long as he stuck to his
subject, got along all right, but when he
directed his remarts to the cause and
effect of Christianity, he appeared more
as an exponent of agnosticism than as one
commending the cau e of christian charity
and brotherly love. The declaration that
"Christianity and tyranny have always
msrebed band in bt.nd down through all
the ages" and that tbe church had always
throw it iifluenoe into the balance
against the rights tod liberties of the
people, "using the deceptive weapons of
superstition aid tigotry to accomplish
their purposes," foil with chilling effect
upon the audience. The mayor, bow
ever, clapped tbe climax when he linked
King Alcohol with tie work of christi
tianity as the evils of society.
The speech had been carefully pre
pared and studied. It was such an ef
fort ss might be expected of one having
a.set purpose in v iew, but not such as
should be carried out en such an occa
sion. I1K timed and entirely improper as
tbe address was, it can only be ac
counted for on the ground that it was a
deliberate piece of political deinRgogisrc.
It was iutt nded for effect, acd it bad i t
t fleet, no doubt. If it was a bid
for higher honors in a nominal
tion at the hands of the party
which is responsiMe for bis election
twine to the mayoralty, and especially a
year ago, it ought to be productive of
good results. But what is it that tbe
mayer seeks? Can it be that he is after
all "the man" whicL the Union has been
"The Two Ulster.
Tonight at tbe Burtis at Davenport
Thompson & Rjer's new comedy dnma,
"The Two Sisters,' is to be presented at
the Burtis at Davti port. The play is a
perfect museum of city characters, clev
ery drawn, presented naturally and ef
fectively and wiUi true snd abundant
humor. The actis.? bad for its leading
and most pleasing characteristic a quiet
nutralness, a subset vience to methods of
comedy rather thin to that of farce.
The cast is excellett from beginning to
end, and that is saying a good deal. The
piece is effectively staged, especially the
scene on the house-tops of New York at
night, and tbe siene before tbe hotel
where the men sit f moking in their shirt
sleeves, listening tc a s'reet musician, are
all characters by a faithful realism with
out exaggeration . Such plays as this,
honest.'and. In a ru lely artistic way, suc
cessful attempts to bold the mirror np to
our daily life are worth a thousand of the
average mtlo-drama, with its absurdities

Work all That Is Xec-rdaary.
The soliciting committees for stock in
the Twin City Columbian expoUtion
meet again tonight at the rooms of the
Rock Ieland Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation, and i large attendance of mem
bers is urgently desired. The committees
which are at work are coming up nicely
with reports, and every day brines ftesh
evidence of interest in the enterrrise.
This morning J. 8 Gilanore put his name
down for $200 worth of tbe stock, and so
they come. Men, of the extensive bus -ness
interests of Mr. Gilmote, have not
the time to give any work te the under
taking, but are ready to give when ap
proached, and the committees have only
to make a determined effort to accom
plish their purpose and make this great
twin-city effort a success.
F. H. Caldwell, of Preemption, has
shown his enterprise and confidence in
the Twin-City Columbian project by f ub
ecribing for 10 shares of stock, and so
the good work goes on.

Th. Double Kettle.
A double kettle ia a very excellent thing
for some kinds of cookery, but there are
many dishes which cannot be prepared
successfully with it. It is impossible for
one such utensil to be used successfully
for everything, though some of onr cooks
seem to be anxious to nee it so. Oatmeal
is rather better cooked in a single porce
lain lined kettle, which is the way it is
cooked in Scotland, though there the ket
tle is apt to be one of plain iron. The double
boiler is the best utensil we have to make
soft custard in, a HoUandaise sauce and
many other things. You cannot make
chocolate successfully in it, however.
