a warrant sworn out by .George
Kraeke, the barber on Moline ave

came into his barber shop and was
shaved, and handed him what was
apparently a $10 gold piece. Mr.
Kracke went to a friend and had the
money changed, ami gave PfafT the

to his chagrin that the gold piece
was bogus; that it was only
i a plated half dollar. Pfaff will prob

Davenport, but more recently his
I home has been at -J14 Third avenue,

the counterfeit money was made bv

The Davenport Tribune expresses

Col. l'.ullington has been misjudged
by the public largely because he
hasn't sought social relations with
the people of the three cities to any
extent. Col. Rutliiigton isn't a so
ciety man. and never has been, but is
devotedly attached to scientitie pur
suits. There isn't a professional
man in the three cities who spends
so much time at his desk and in his
studies as does the Cidonel. The re
sult of all this research of a keen
mind has been given to the country
in the form of inventions that are the
envy of foreign military circles the

met hods for t csi ing tiie strength of
metais. and other scientific devices.
He is probably the hc-t posted man
on metals in the United States army
today, and machinery is being added
to the arsenal to develop his new
ideas. He looks into the details of
all the work done there. He can't
be bulldozed, and there probablv
isn't a man in America that cares less
for the praise or criticisms of the
public than he docs. He lias vio
lated no law. lie runs the arsenal ac
cording to military rules, and its
bosh to talk of his removal, even if
hedoes commit the unpardonable sin
of refusing to become an attraction
in tri-city society. Col. Rullington
understands his business, and the
war department knows it.

There should be a large audience

quality of the attraction, for on that
evening I he famous nnrtn provKinr
extravaganza. --Skipped hy the Light
of the Moon" will be proscnted here
by row let-and YA armington's clever
company of comedians, an organiza
tion that has a national reputation
and is well and favorably known from
one end ot the country to the other
for the superior manner in which its
productions are placed upon the
stage. "Skipped by the Light of the
.Moon has liecn witnessed by enor
mous audiences in the leading thea
tres of every large city in the coun
try. To attempt to relate the plot
or to give a detailed description of
the play would be a waste of space.
It has bits of burlesque, moments of
broad farce. Much that savors of
genuine comedy and pantomime is
used in it with good results. All
these varying elements have been
cleverly and skillfully utilized, and
the effect is to keep the audience in a
condition ranging from a quiet smile
to loud and hysterical laughter.
On Monday evening the Andrews
Opera company will sing the ever
popular "La Maseotte" at Harper's
theatre for the benelit of St. Paul
