Yesterday the confidence men were at work. A stranger named I. N. Bard, en route for Lewisburg, Arkansas, met a con fidence man in the city, who soon announced that ho was bound for the same town.

The money was in the hands of Bard's wife, who refused to give it up, but Bard insisted on having it for his new-made friend, and she surrendered it. When the stranger got the money he hurried up town from the boat to pay a grocery bill, and wa3 not seen again by the victimized Bard.

Last night, at tie Theater, Lotta and com pany appeared in the Little Detective, before a larsre nnd fashionable audience, who en joyed the presentation of the drama. Lotta appeared in six different characters, which crave her ample opportunity to display her versatility. The drama of itself contains many gJod situations, but it hinges alto gether on Lotta, in order to bring out her specialties and dramatic talent, io-nignt Lotta will appear for the last time during this engagement, in Zip, or Point Lynde Light, in which she shines like a star.

Florence, as "Mrs. General GiJtlory, 'will ap pear in six different elaborate costumes, all made by Worth, ot l ans. l hey will re main for one week. Lotta'slLo-vere). The sprightly actress, who holds the stage of Leubrie's Theater just now, like all her sex, is proud ot her conquests. There, as our readers might well surmise, are many, and are to be found in every city in the country. In the course or a recent inter view with the Philadelphia Times the golden haired sprite confessed as much and fur' nished some proof, as follows: "In Boston there was a fellow who tor months and months wrote directly to me, just as this Zotf has. pud in Chicago there was another man who has written me regularly, twice or three times a month for the past hve years, You would think to read his letters that he was one of my be friends, and heard from me as often as he writes. "Since I bave been here I hare received two letters from him and a present- hand kerchiefthat is worth about ten csnta J should think. Once, when 1 was playing in this city, I got a present from a young man who was engaged la tome way behind the soenes at the theater, lie was a quiet, re' spectful man. and no one eve? looked at him, I came home one day and found a la?,ge cake nicely tied up. On the crust were the letters L-o-t-t-a. Two or three days alter I got a letter from him saying (Jkat his father made the cake out of the beet goods that come. It was really very good, and we ate it all. "One man wrote ma in Boston jteliidg rue inat 1 was his tate and that 1 could never es cape him. He compared me to Josephine and himself to Napoleon, silently watching the star of destiny. Xhat was another or my idiotic adorers. I do wish that a man of a little s3nse would admire me for once." This statement of Miss Lotta's was ques tioned, naturally, by the gentlemen present, but all efforts (no matter how delicate they were) to get at the little lady's real affairs of sentiment were unavailing. "One Chicagoan," Lotta resumed, "sent me a chart of his head. I am not a phrenol ogist, but they said that the man had a very nne nead. lie wrote me that he did not care for my money; he only wanted me. Poor man, he became bo serious that it alarmed me. One day, while we were in Cincinnati, a man came to the door with a letter for me. I was asleep, and he refused to give it to my mother, saying that he had been directed to give it right into the hands of Miss Lotta. He went away, and the next day he met me in the street, and gave me the letter. It was from this unfortunate man in Chicago. My engagement was to begin the following week, and he wrote me in the most distressed way, telling me that they were putting up my lithographs in the windows of all the low saloons, "This," said LotVs mother, J'is the same man who has written yw so constantly for years, as though his letters were answered." After a short silence Miss Lotta resumed "Yes, ha is the one. I never saw him in my life, but 1 be&r that he is a messenger on soma railroad out there tao Michigan South ern, I think, lie lets every one now that he is devoted to me. and 1 believe that his friends answer his letters."
