A Runaway Ari-iilcnt .
Louis Zoeekler and (ieorge Green,
of Hock Islat d. met with a serious
accident on Saturday evening in Hav
en port. Mr. I'oeckier has for some
time past been handling one of Ar

to all account- and appearances that
colt is the meanest colt that ever
drew breath when he wants to be.
That aforesaid colt has an idea that
ho is both in: ster and man. and on
several occaMons has been rather
demonstrative in his actions. On
Saturday eve ling at about 8 o'clock
Messrs. Zoeekler and Green were
driving in Da.enport on lenkmann's
hill near the telegraph road, ami the

that the vehicle in which the voting
men were riiiing ran up on the ani
mal's heels ainl the colt began to use
those heels in a way which made it
highly uncomfortable for the two
young men behind him. He seemed
determined t kick that wagon apart,
but not succeeding in this he started
down the hill and dashed into a tele
graph pole, throwing the occupants
out anil in juring Mr. Green rather
seriously. ft!r. Zoeekler was able to
be about yes erday, but complained
of a very lame back. It may be some

The Corps de Garde band, from

concert at the grounds, which was
enjojed by 15,000 people. The fea
tureNvhich has proved so attractive,
is one that ihe promoters of the Col

tinguished foreign bands here for

which the railway company might

Drunk! Don'nt mention it! Sam
Beiskas was the drunkest man you
ever saw this morning. Officer
Crompton was called to the Rock

Sam up. He was, at the time of his
arrest, slumbering sweetly between
the railroad tracks and the platform
from which they load lumber uncon
scious if the danger which threat
ened him for had any cars been push
ed up the track, he would surely
have been killed. He was sadly di
lapidated, as his clothes were all torn
but he had money in every pocket of
his clothes. He "will be "dealt with
according to his offense not his
money of course.

The "Fast Mall" Tomorrew Night Other
Lincoln J. Carter's superb scenic
production, the "Fast Mail" which
will be presented at Harper's theatre
next Tuesday evening, by an excel
lent company, is one of the most suc
cessful plays put upon the stage in
recent years. The story is thrilling,
and justice is done the startling, and
realistic scenes by a perfection of
mechanical effects. Among other
productions is a representation of an
engine room on a Mississippi river
steamboat, with the furnaces under
the boilers fired up: a train of cars
shoots across the stage in one scene,
and in another there is a vivid, beau
tiful and awe-inspiring representa
tior of Niagara falls by moonlight,
with the singing waters and graceful
mist that rises above and about it.
The company is said to be excellent
That Chicago is now a metropolis
theatrically, as well as in other re
spects, can no longer be truthfully
den'ed. Four or tiveyears ago it was
just getting out of the category of
"week stands." Now engagements
lasting from a month to six months
are not unusual. While the World's
fair crowds have had much to do with
the large attendance at the theatres
this season, it is not fair to say that
this has been an exceptional year.
The fact that Chicago can in itself
and during ordinary times adequate
ly support one play for months has
been demonstrated conclusively by
David Henderson's Chicago opera
house show pieces., --Ali Baba" be
gan last Sunday night the 10th week
of its World's fair run, but this en
gagement cannot be regarded as un
usual or due entirely to the presence
of the great exhibition, for last sum
mer the same spectacle played an en
gagement of 23 weeks to business
that was every bit as large as it is
doing now. With the exception of a
new song, recently introduced bv
Eddie Foy, entitled "They All Take
After Me," which has made a big hit,
there is nothing new in "Ali Baba."
The bright and sparkling character
ot tne entertainment, however, the
abundance of good music, the attrac
tive scenes, the rich costume and
the general blithe and merry nature
of the piece serve to keep it ever
fresh and make it interesting, no
matter how many times it is seen.
The re-illumination of Henrv
Dixey in the character of "Adonis'"
with its delicate colors and elusive
beaut ies, proved not to be a bad idea,
for it was found that an audience can
still become enthusiastic over the
actor's graces, and it looks as though
the old time success would again
magnatize the public and make
money for its resuscitators. Dixey
has retained the volatile, glittering
and delightful "Adonis," that was
known so well in the'past and whose
brilliancy we had thought was extin
guished forever. It speaks well for
the famous burlesque that an audi
ence familiar with it can enjoy every
line of its frivolities, as they most cer
tainly did at the Casino. The pro
duction will be under the able direc
tion of the well known firm, C. 15.
Jefferson. Klaw & Erlanger. The pub
lic will have a treat in witnessing
the distinguished comedian and his
company at the Burtis opera house,
Davenport, Wednesday and Thurs
day, Sept. 13 and 14.
The Wild Che rrie.
The Cherry sisters will open their
season at Cedar Rapids next Monday
evening. Among the features of the
performance will be a parody on
"Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay." a male im
personation, by Miss Ella, the elocu
tionist, and a skirt dance ay the com
pany. But the hit of the play, ac
cording to the Cherry sisters' home
made program, will be "Barefoot
Iona, the Orphan Flower Girl," by
Elbe Cherry in her bare feet.
The Columbian Matter.
At the meeting of the signers of
the Columbian notes at the rooms of
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement
association Saturdaj' evening, a
straight indemnifying bond, limiting
each man's liability was agreed to,
the signers not to be less than 20,
every note signer to hare the oppor
tunity of participating in the trust;
and the sale of the land to the highest
bidder as soon as possible, was
deemed the shortest and best way
out of the complications that have
arisen. It is probable that a syndi
cate will be formed to purchase the
land, and those of the endorsers,
several of .whom have already met
their lobligations at the bank suing
on the notes, will participate in this
transaction, thus more than realiz
ing whnt they have risked for public
interest. Meanwhile the taxes and
interest must be temporarily ad
vanced. There is a disposition to sus
tain Messrs. Jackson and Vclie, who
have become so much involved in
this enterprise, to the end, and The
Ai!;i s has but to repeat that by
standiag together the matter will
come out satisfactory to all con
cerned. The land is a good investment,
such as would be eagerly seized at
any time by people who know how to
profit by judicious outlay in solid

statement in plain clothes is that the
manufacturers of furniture have
found out that if they will givi;

workmanship and not try to humbug

We have just placed on sale a car-
load of bedroom suits ranging in
price from $15.50 to $35.00
These are by far the best values ever placed in this market for
the money. Even the cheapest set is hard wood double top fine
bevel mirror, and the finish and workmanship are as good as : h
any set you could buy elsewhere for from $13 to $20.
FOLDING BEDS 19 to $45 these are special
WARDROBES $10 to $20.
You can't equal them elsewhere for price, style, quality or
