Mr. Rnd Mrs Sidney Drew Give a Clever
Doable Rlll at Harper's GUmora.
Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew, those tal
ented exponents of the :!a"n of
dramatic art appear.-'' -. .urj." . thea
tre last evening in a double bill before an
appreciative audience. The intertain
ment opened with the presentation of
Sidney Qoundy's refined and charming
one net play "In Honor Bouud'' followed
by the New York comedy suecefcs, "That
Girl From Mexico." Ia both predic
tions Mr. and Mis. Drew were of.
fered abundant scope for the display of
their wonderful dramatic gifts. Tbe two
productions offord distinct opportunity
for Mr. Drew's versatile ability, while
Mrs. Drew likewise makes tbe beet of
the characters assigned to her. Other
members of the company whoee work
was worthy of special mention were Ed
ward Morris aud J. M. Utrauss and
Miss Emma Bell, It was a fine enter
tainment in all respects.
Gilm'ore's great band gave one of its
coccerts at the Burt's at Davenport last
evening, quite a number attending from
Rock Island. The entertainment was
excellent from an artistic standpoint, but
the audience was not large, owing uo
doubt to the high prices of a J mission.
BERT MOORE FOUND.
The MiKiiiK l'ort Byron Young Man Alive
and Working at Cvtlar KapUls, I v;t.
As stated in Tbk Argus a few da 6
aeo A. L. Moore, of Florence, M:nn.,
was in the tri-c'.tiea in search si his
mitring brother who mysU-rioirslv dis
appeared from l'ort Byron aevera'
months ago. A'ter looking about here
for some clue ia vuiu he dc-termiucd to
visit all the towns of importunes in the
vicinity in hopes of learning some
thing as to his brother's where
abouts, lie first went to
Iowa City and luckily discovered that
his brother had been there several months
previously, and upon further search lo
cated the younsr man working at his
trade that of a tinner at Cedar Rapids.
Whatever prompted young Moore to
leave iuthe way he did is not known. He
not only left his clothes and all his belong
ings, but also money in back and gives no
reason for his strange action. No mat
ter what his reasons were for leaving, he
was certainly not justified in subjecting
his friends to tbe anxiety and expense
they have been put to, 89 he is o'd
enouLb to know better.
