First Presentation Here of the "Limited
Mail" Other Attractions
Elmer E. Vance's spectacular drama,
"The Limited Mail," was presented
to a large and appreciative audience
at Harper's theatre last evening.
The production is in one respect de
signed after the style of Lincoln J.
Carter's "Fast Mail," though it does
not approach it in details of realism,
but in the dramatic construction and
in the character of the talent em
ployed, it excels it. The Limited
Mail" is not lacking in scenic effects,
however, and contains much that is
novel and striking. The cast of
characters shows little Beatrice a re
markably gifted actress, who not only
sustained her role as Jim Harland in
a creditable manner, hut did some
graceful wing dancing and sonsat ion-
al acrobatic feats. V. J. Kiley, as
Jack Hawkins the tramp, was ex
tremely comical, while Joe Coyne, as
Barney O'Rcagan, and K. H. Ste
phens, as Zeko Harland, and George
Barr, as John Giddcns, sustained
their respective rolls admirably.
Miss Olive Trcmaine was not at all
adapted to the heroic character of
Nellie Harland, but the other imper
sonations were in good hands.
Carroll Johnson, the singing come
dian, will present his bi coined v
Hut, '-The Irish Statesman" at the
Burtis at Davenport Sunday after
noon and evening.
The sensational drama. "777" is to
be seen at Harper's theatre next
Tuesday night. It is one of the best
attractions on the road, and its pre
sentation will insure a packed house.
The great interest centering in the
appearance of Thomas W. Keenc.
who comes to the Burtis Saturday
'veiling, indicates that the occasion
will be used by the votaries of dress
and fashion to make it a swell affair,
and to bring together the acknowl
edged leaders of society with their
many followers. Beauty. rank,
dress anil jewels will add charm to
the scene off the stage, while it will
materially enhance the artistic treat
anticipated on the starve, nanielv. Mr.

To Stop a Trolley Car lustautly.
A Rochester man has devised a plan
by which a trolley street car can be
stopped almost instantaneously, or with
in a space of three feet, while the car is
going at full sjiced. His device is oper
ated by a lever in the motorman's cab.
It is, generally speaking, a steel shoe,
upon which the rear wheels of the car
ride, the under side of which is corru
gated so as to produce great friction
upon the rails of the track. On the top
of the shoe is an arrangement which, as
sooTt as the wheel rises upon the shoe,
clamps the outer rim of the wheel and
at the same time grasps the inner edge
of the rail. The simple weight of the car
crowds down the shoe upon the rail and
at the same time clamps together, as in
a vise, the wheel and the rail, and all
this by a single movement on the part of
the motorman. New York Telegram.

On one occasion the man drove over to

health of his sister-in-law, who was dan

Immediately and in the most emphatic
manner the woman cried out: "I want

I!ismareki4 Advice to Students.
Only now, and in a roundabout way,
via Bonn, has the text of the speech
which Prince Bismarck made at the re
ception of Bonn students become known.
The prince confessed that at the univer
sity he neglected study, but added: "The
only thing that I am sorry for on look
ing back to those times is that I could
not later on make up for what I had neg
lected then. What one has learned aft
erward does not remain so firmly in one's
memory. I do not dissuade you from
working, but I am not horrified if my
sons commit studentlike excesses, and
above all things I believe that the stu
dent's life iu corporations has this ad
vantagethat it somewhat steels the
charac ter by subjecting each to the crit
icism of his comrades. This is a great
thing. As long as one belongs to a cor
poration, to the opinion of which one at
taches much importance, one does not
easily go astray. The same thing plays
an important part later on in life. 'What
is it that is the backbone of German of
ficials? The university and the sword
knot." Berlin Cor. London News.
How to Live if You 'Wish to Live Long.
Aside from the very important and
controlling influence of inheritance, of
diet and of temperate habits, the points
to be learned from the few statistical
data attainable are that longevity is pro
moted by a quiet, peaceful life in a re
tired and rural community, where there
is freedom from nervous strain and wor
rying and excessively laborious toil. The
business man, with increasing cares and
responsibilities, the mill operative toil
ing hard to keep together the souls and
bodies of himself and his family, the
politicians, the hardworking professional
men, are not the chief contributors to
the centenarian ranks. Dr. Holyoke in
deed became a centenarian, but his ex
ample has rarely been followed by his
professional brethren. Boston Medical
and Surgical Journal.
"Where "Sterling" Came From.
Sterling signifies money from the le
galized standard of coinage of Great
Britain. According to one theory the
term originated as follows: It is a cor
ruption of Easterliug a jierson from
north Germany, on the continent of
Eurojie, and therefore from the east in
geographical relation to England. The
Easterlings were ingenious artisians
who came to England in the reign of
Henry 111 to refine the silver money, and
the coin they produced was called mon
eta Easterlingorum the money of the
Easterlings. New York Evening Sun.

Lightning and Rain.
It is popularly supposed that the sud
den downpour which usually follows a
bright flash of lightning is in some way
caused by the flash. Meteorologists hflve
proven that this is not the case and
that, exactly to the contrary, it is not
only possible but highly probable that
the sudden increased precipitation is the
real cause of the flash. St. Louis Re
