The general desire of theatre goers
to be amused is shown by the extra
ordinary success of "Skipped by the
Light of the Moon." This even
ing this laughable piece will be pro
duced at Harper's theatre in a recon
structed form and freshened by the
introduction of much new music and
many amusing specialties which have
J been introduced for the present sea
son's tour. JXo analysis can be given
ofsueh a farce. To attempt to de
scribe it would belike trying to paint
the merry jingle of a laugh. Like a
basket of good champagne it can
only be appreciated by the sampling
process. The audience are convulsed
w ith laughter from beginning to end:
and they laugh, and they shout and
pound the tloor, the seats and each
other until they are actually ashamed
of themselves." We feel that we vio
late no confidence in saying that all
who attend will find "Skipped"1 to be
very, very funny.

TO DIRECT THE BUILDING
John Yolk Has His Commission as Super
intendent of the 1-Vderal Structure.
John Yolk received his commission
from Secretary of the Treasury Car
lisle this morning as superintendent
of Rock Island's new government
building. The office is one that ear
ries with it a salary oi .j a tl."w. in
cluding Sunday from tho time
the supervising architect orders
work to commence until the
structure is completed. The
fact that Sir. oik. has been ap
pointed to this responsible position
is gratifying in more ways than one.
It indicates that the government is
getting in readiness to move in the
s r. ......
matter of erection of the builihn
over w hich there has been so much
vexatious delay and for which the
title to the lot at. the corner of Six
teenth street and Second avenue has
been held bv the government for so
long a time.
Mr. Volk Amply (lualified.
It is further a source of satisfac
tion to know that the treasury de
partment has chosen so wisely in the
supervising architect. Not only does
Mr. Yolk possess decided advantages
in a practical way. being a contractor
ana builder of large experience, but
his candidacy was endorsed and fur
thered by many of the representative
democrats of the city including Na
tional Committeeman Ben T. Cable.
