Some soulless, heart'ess individual has
been playing a mean trick on the Chicago
papers, similar though much more seri
ous and inconsiderate than that attempt
ed by snrae anonymous individual in South
Rock Island on the Rock Island papers
last Friday concerning a marriage. Al
though the Chicago imposter has gone so
far as to perpetrate the cruel joke ot
publishing without foundation the death
ef an unmarried young lady together
with the funeral announcement, and the
mistake ws not discovered until a num
ber of carriages had arrived at the time
designated for the funeral and the young
lady who was the victim opened the doer
uncoucious of the ancouncement concern
ing her and the caller on seeing the sup
posed corpse fainted from shock on the
door step. The News-Record devotes
half column to the mystery surrounding
the unfortunate announcement.
A Jolly Surprise" by Fannie Bice' Com
pany lt Evening "Gloriana."
Harper's theatre was well filled last
evening wi h an appreciative audience to
greet Fanny Rice in her new "Jolly Sur
prise " Tte play and company is all
that is clai ned for it, and that those
present were pleased was evidenced by
the many recalls that were responded to.
Miss Rice's cabinet specialty in the sec
ond act wa one of the most clever per
formance ever given in the city and her
support wis of sufficient strength to
give the whoie an artistic tint.
Charles Frchman's comedy con pan y
will he seen io London and New York's
latest and most successful comedy farce
"Gloriana," at Harper's theatre for the
first time oa Friday evening. The com
edy has just closed a long acd prosper
ous run of nearly 150 nights in New
York, and report spetks very highly of
both the play and company. New York
the tire goers enj yed the past season, a
surfeit of fl-st class comedy farce. Fun
at the theat es in all l.rge cities appears
to be the rage, and managers like Mr.
Charles Frhman have been able to
gratify this popular taste by the produc
tion of a number of plays of exceptional
brightness and humor. Uiquettionably
the most pronounced success of thrs
character since "Mr. Wilkinson's
Wid ws" w is produced has been that or
"Gloriana." It is a three-act comedy by
James Mort mer, an American by birth,
but he has lived abroad so long that mast
people regard him ms a foreigner. He is
expected, however, to return to thii
country shortly, after an absence of 26
years. "Gloriana' has, in bddn-kn to
its merit of being exceedingly fucnj, the
great advantage of being presented by a
company of unusual excellence, including
uch well known players as George W.
Barnum, William Norris, Eugene F. Eb-
erle. Charles E. Warren, Charles Drake,
John Allen. G. C. Phillips, Jacqves

OUR SEVENTH ANNUAL.
We have a iTeen snake (Dryophis f ulgida)
which, when hunting for preen frogs and
lizards, winds in and out among "the flex
uous stems of creeping plants, and so
closely resem' les them in color as to al
most defy dtection even by the keenest
eyes. I lose at band among tne bashes
maybe a huge grasshopper, whose broad
fore wings w hen closed are of the exact
color of the lc af on which he rests, so that
his disguise is perfect and he chirps on in
safety. Yet, if the lizard, instead of haunt
ing the green, leafy thicket, be of that
species found crawling over the walls of
buildings in t be city, be puts on a totally
different aprx arance from that of his own
kindred in th forest, or even m the inte
rior of house.', being of the exact hne of
the ruined st ne and mud walls on which
he is found, while the house lizard Is
speckled and of an ashy tray tint like the
ceiling on which he rests, and for clinging
to which his feet are specially adapted.
