Walker Whiteside, the tragedian, is to
appear at Harper's theatre tonight in
"Richelieu." 8;eadily and surely Mr.
Whiteside has gained by his artistic and
scholarly acting the reputation of being
one of the lesd ng tragedians of America.
This is h;;b praise, rut no less de

His health failing he was compelled to
retire and deyo'.e hirnseif to physical cuU
ture. Last season he aain aooeard and
for thirty-eight we.ks played every night
with the exception of Sundays, ard at
the final ptrformanci his success was
spoken of as ."phenomenally ereat ."
He enjoys the distinction of being one
of the few tragedians possessed of great
versatility for.be has played with wonder
ful success in low comedy as well as
high. -He haB power as an author and
his dramatic essays show him to be pos
sessed of scholarly attainments. His

What it Looks Like.
The scow sweeper looks very similar
t a box car hoisted up on a flit car with
a big bundle of brushes hanging out at
either end. It is propelled bv electricitv
and by means of a trolley pole from the
roaf just as the motor cars are operated.
It is provided with two 15 horse power
motors for propulsion and a 13-horse
power mctor for manipulating the
brushes. These brushes are of rattan
and when in operation have a rotary mo
tion that sends the snow flying from the
tracks in all directions, but does not pile
it up along the street as is the case with
the ordinary snow plow. There is of
course a plow attachment that breaks
the snow as the machine approaches.

Will Make Merry on t he Street.
The snow plow is not calculated to
make peace with the lords of the street
which are not yet entirely reconciled to

oat on the street the horses that chance
to witness us approach are just as
likely to climb a church spire as any
thing tlse. The person therefore that
nis a horse which is in the habit of
miking a fool or itself under any and
all provocation will act the part of
wisdom by keeping off the streets tra-.
versed by the railway tracks during
times of heavy snow, when the sweeper

Mr. end Mrs. Henry Carse celebrated
teir twenty-second wedding anniversary
at their pleasant home on Fourth avenue
last evening. It was an entirely in

the occasion greatly.
Tne "session" given by ihe Twin-City

The Coldest Winter.
ihe Muscatine Journal recently stated
that the river remained closed longer in
the winter of 1812 3 of any other in the
history of the country, but after looking
up the record finds that the winter of
1890-1 was the record breaker. "The
river closed that winter on the 27th of
November and remained closed until the
12th of April tiree days longer than in
1842 3. But the winter of 1842 3 was
much the coldest, the thermometer being
below zero during each of the five months
and the average temperature during the
entire winter was 21. 1."
