Hundreds or More of Them Have Dis
appeared, Says Writer in the
La Crosse, Wis.
Tribune.
BOOK TELLS THE STORY
Discloses Names of Scores of Steam
Boats no Longer Treading the
Mississippi
River.
Among the records of old days on
the river, preserved In the office of
tho La Crosse bridge engineer, says
the Tribune, is one little book of the
early elghHes, which is extremely in
teresting, telling a story as It does, of
tlie pHssing n'. scores of toats which
busily pliol ilie -i-.w vjitrs of tne
Mississippi Muriy years ego. Only
throfj boats r.-ow innning on the upper
river ar^ m-w enrolled In tliis volume,
the Eclipse, the Sidney and the Ben
Hershey. All of the other hundred or
more boats are numbered among the
river's vanishing fleets. Some few are
probably in service on other parts of
the river and its tributaries, and the
machinery of several of the others Is
still being used, although the old
hulls and cabins have long since
gone to the scrap pile. For the most
part, however, the old boats are en
tirely gone. Many burned to the wa
ter's edge, others sank and were
abandoned, and the remainder outliv
ed their usefulness, and went the
way of all Mississippi boats, which at
best are not long-lived crsft.
The great variety of names of boats
passing through the draw in 1881 and
1882 is in marked contrast to condr
tions existing today, when scarcely
more than a dozen individual boats
whistle for the draw in a single sea
eon. A few rafters, a packet or two
and an occasional government boat
are about all that remain of the once
mighty fleet of up-river steamers.
The names of the following old
time boats, contained in the little
book at the draw, may prove interest
ing and will refresh the memories of
old residents who saw them pass up
and down the stream In the river's
palmy days:

Large numbers of boats in the old
days were named after wives and
daughters of their owners others
were given names of cities along the
river, whilo others were given such
fanciful titles as "White Eagle," "War
Eagle," "Bald Eagle," and many other
Eagles. The book contains an entry
regarding the burning of the beautiful
Ohio river steamer Idlewild, which a
short time before its destruction was
on the upper river. The boat was
burned to the water'B edge at Coving
ton, Ky., in 1882. She was 250 feet long
and cost $12,600. The Idlewild was
-fouilt at Paducah, Ky„ in 1875.
It also tells of the burning of the
fWar Eagle which went to the botom
opposite what is now the Y. M. C. A.
camp.
The boat caught fire at the levee,
and was towed up stream, lashed to
the bank and left to meet its fate.

AMUSEMENTS.
Seat Sale for "The Heart Breakers."
The opening sale for the "Heart
Breakers" proved to be very satisfac
tory "but a number of good seats re
main. The report that the seats had
all been sold is incorrect. It is ex
pected, however, that all seats will
be sold before tho show starts tomor
row evening so If you intend to see
the fine musical comedy better buy
your tickets now.
"The Heart Breakers."
Many musical plays have come from
Manager Mort H. Singer's playhouse,
but none better has been sent out
by this astute manager than the
"Heart Breakers," his litest musical
comedy hit, direct from a long run at
the Princess Theatre. This charming
musical gem will be seen at the Grand
opera house tomorrow evening. Head
ing the brilliant all star cast Is Geo.
Damerel of "Merry Widow'' fame. As
sociated with him are Miss Ruth
Peebles the famous prima donna. Miss
Louise Meyers, and the perfect Prin
cess chorus. The play Is in two acts
and is a riot of catchy music, beauti
fully gowned girls, magnificent stage
settings and intricate electrical ef
fects. The book and lyrics are by
Adams and Hough, the music by Har
old Orlob and Melville Gideon and
staged by that master mind of stage
craft, Nod Wayburn. Chief among
the song hits are "Somewhere She's
Flirting With Someone," "The Songs
You Used to Sing to the Girls You
Used to Love," "If I Had a Hundred
Hearts," and many others.
"Rosalind at Redgate."
Although the mystery in the new
play, "Rosalind at Redgate,'' is a' dis
tracting affair, and the love element
proportionately strong, all but the
casual observer will realize that the
feature In which lies its greatest mer
it Is its character delineation. Here is
a decent plot, unusual but possible,
and experienced workmanship, two
qualities that go far towards a play's
popularity. Chief in the character
studies are Rosalind, a mystery—
troublesome and tantalizing— that
will keep the spectator in doubt al
most to the end of the play Patricia
Holbrook—"Aunt Pat"—a delightful
woman of middle age, who holds in
trust largie sum of money for her
brother, Henry Holbrook, father of
her niece and ward, Helen. Larry
Donovan, an interesting and romantic
young Irishman, Is the hero who is
appointed guardian of the afTalrs of
the ladies, and In that position gets
himself into a heap of trouble. He
proves himself staunch and true, how
ever, and is ably seconded by one
"Reginald Gillespie, president of the
Button Trust." The character of Gil
lespie is no small aid to the bright
ness of the play. He a frivolous
chap—eccentric and funny. How
these rivals, along with a number of
other people were the actors In some
very dramatic episodes is entertaingly
put forward at the Grand opera house
Saturday, October 21, matinee and
evening.
