Oliver Olsen'a Plan to Furnish Western
Land and Irrigate tt.
The following special from Cheyenne
to the Chicago Herald, shows what O i
ver Olsen is about in the west, as here
tofore referred to in The Aious:
Articles of incorporation of a $5,000,
000 company that controls 700.000 acres
of land in the two western counties of
this state will be filed Friday morning.
The syndicate has purchased 224.000
acres frm the Union Pacific and the re
maindt r of the great trict will be open to
settlement. Q.rge A Crofutt. of over
land guide fame, is the father of the pro
ject. He has secured the cooperntion of
such men ts the Porter brother and the
Marshall brothers of Denver; A.. L.
Roeder, H J. Mayham and L. 8 Cornell
of Denver, and Oliver Chien of Rock Isl
and, 111. Preliminary surveys have al
ready been mdc The niMia canal from
the Green river will be 120 miles long
The fertile Green river. Ham's Fork and
Black Fork basin will be planed under
ditch. Tbere will be ample water power
for mills. Mr. Olssn. of Rock Island, is
to furnish Sc-mdioaviao farmers. The
work to be undertaken for winter
will be a ditch to rer.laim 40 000 jcres of
the railway land. The farmers will have
ample transportation facilities, -and a
marketat the coal camps and for 400 miles
east. This is the largest irrigating enter
prise ever projected in the west.

Bunis at Davnoort yesierda) iu his new

Tonight at Harper's theatre Frank
Mayo will be seen in his idyl of the back
woods, "Davy Crockett," a cliaracteriii -tion
that has brought fame to the cele
brated actor. Strictly American in theme
and motive devoid of the offensive
Indian trappings it stands today the
most distinctive American play ever
written. Its romance is of a delightful
Chirac ter winning inia nature, pure in
sentiment such sentiment as should find
a resting place in every Amricn's heart.
To see "Davy Crockett" is to be armed
with a telling proof aga:nst the oft slated
argument that "American life offers no
theme for dramatists."
Tne Rock Island lovers of legitimate
stage productions will be happy to learn
that Manager Henderson has arranged
with Manager K:ndt of the Burtis at
Davenport for a two-night engagement of
the tragedian, Walker Whitesiric, who
appears Wednesday night in "Othello'1
and Thursday nighr, in "Richard the
Third." The fact that Mr. Whiteside won
8 many admirers in his presentation of
"Ricbelieu" at Harper's theatre last week
ought to be si.ffi.:ient to crowd the house
a, the B-irtis. Oa Saturday Mr. Hen
derson engaged EJward Morris, late lead'
ing man of Mr. and Mrs. Drew's cox
pany. to support Mr. Wtiteside. He
will play the King in "Richelieu" and a
comedy role in the other tragedies.
'Z;D,'the Hoosier play, will be pre
sented at Harper's theatre on Thursday
evening of this week.
The face of Bert Cunningham adorns
the front page of this week's Sporting
News and ucd.r it appears the following
with reference to him: i
The portrait that we give this week is
that of K Cunningham the famous BaltU
timore pitcher, who has made a first
class reputation as a pitcher in tbe Na
tional League. He is a nativ j of Moline.
Illinois, and commenced playing ball in
1865. His first professional engagement
that brought him into prominence was
with the Bil joiore club of the American
association in 1888, when he had a batting
average of .214 and a fielding percentage
of .922 standing thirteenth in the pitch
ers' records of the American association
having won 16 out of 33 games. In
1800 he cast his lot with the Payers'
League, playing with the Philadelphia
club. Later in the season he went to
Buffalo, with which club he flnisbed the
year. His record that year was .923 in
fielding and .214 in batting. With the
collapse of the Players' Lsagne h e re
turned to Baltimore for which club he
officiated in the box dnring the season of
1891. In this year he pitched in 26
games. 11 of which were victories
and 14 defeats, a- percentage of
.440, standing 18 in tbe official
pitchers' records of the association. Last
spring he signed with the Western
League, and in the pooling out of play
ers he was assigned to St. Paul . His
work In the box was of the best of the
pitchers in that leagae, and in the records
he ranks well toward the top. When tbe
Western League collapsed, he retired for
the season. He combines speed and
curves and his pitching is well calculated
to worry a batter.
Cunningban did not retire at the end
of the St. Paul club. He played after
ward with Fort Wayae, and later be offi
ciated as pitcher for the Rock Island-
Moline club of the I. I. league and con
tributed materially toward tbe Twins
winning tbe pennant.

Far bo it from ma to discouEaflo true

which is to be avoided. Baying socks at

The Oldest Known Inscription.
In the palace of the Louvre, Paris, in that
position set np.-ixt for Hebrew antiquities
may be soen the famous "Pillar of Kinj?
Mesa." It is fashioned from pure black
basalt, measures 40 inches in height, 28 in
width and 14 inches in thickness. For2,800
years this f;iuious historical "stela" re
mained in one position in the "country of
the Moaliites," on the shores of the Dead
Sea, at the sjvrt, sis is supposed, where the
frontier of their territory joined with that
cf the tribe of Reuben. It bears upon its
faces the very oldest inscriptions that hare
yet been deciphered, characters, words and
sentences that vrtre "graved thereon" at a
time contemporaneous with the Bible, 900
years liefore the birth of the Saviour.
One remarkable thing in connection with
this antique pillar and its history is the
fact that it was not buried in the sands, as
most well preserved ancient relics have
bctn, but remained standing erect in the
full light of the day for twenty-eight cen
turies. The first news of the whereabouts
of this ancient pillar was communicated
to M.Clermont-Ganneau.or.eof the French
consuls at Jerusalem, in 1S70. The great
historical value of the End may be judged
from the fact that many of the inscrip
tions supply facts that have been wholly
omitted from the Biblical accounts of the
wars between King Mesa and the Israel
ites. St Louis Republic,
