The story will be of especial interest to our readers in this city as the little steamer will soon pass through here, and many will look for its coming with interest. But con tinuing the story the Dispatch asys : The little steamer. John H. Eirby, I built in Chicago for William Weiss, a lumberman of Beaumont, Tex. , will leave St. Louis tins ween upon one oi the most unique trips ever made oy a steamboat. Mr. Weiss is eoine to Beaumont without plying more than 90 miles of , the Gulf of Mexico. He is going to do . it by going down the Mississippi river t.n the Red river, no the Red river to the river Atchafalya, down the At- chalfalya through Grand Lake, then thmncrh Vermillion Lake to the Gulf, and Anally through Sabine Pass and Lake to the Neches river, wluon ne wi 1 1 ascend to Beaumont. The 90 miles of gulf which he cannot avoid are be tween Vermillion Bay ana urana Pass. When the good ship, "John H. Itir by," steamed into the St. Louis har bor under tow last week, there was more than ordinary interest m m One man. William Weiss.ol Beaumont, Tex., for three weeks had been in St. Louis patiently awaiting the arrival of the Kirby. The usual crowd of levee hands, teamsters, shipping clerks and idlers at the levee on the foot of Morgan street, looked her over with much ad miring comment and a considerable amount of curiosity, for the, Kirby was unlike any of the boats that us ually tie np at the St. Louis wharf. She is 97 feet long over all.and 17M feet wide. The Interest increased when it was learned that the Kirby was the pleai re yacht of Mr. Weiss, who is a wealthy lumberman of Beuamont. Prom the close confinement ;to busi ness Mr. Kirbyi health has been im paired, and he hopes to regain his health by boating.

The prediction madi b many that the gymnasium would exist only twelve months is now found to be an ancient myth for in the last two weeks fiver a doezn new applications have been voted on for membership. The rapid development our young men are making as strong men under the instruction of Prof. Hillebrand is something wonderful. In fact, some nights, with a class turning sommer sault in air, others on the horizontal bars and with still others on the rings and trapeze, it presents the appear ance of a first-class circus, and if you had been called upon to pay the price of admission and had the lem onade man to offer you a glass, or the sideshow man speeling on the nntioHo trnn wonld. next day. have been praising the performance. Another feature of the gymnasium which should appeal to every father to join is, it furnishes a place for his boys to pass away Saturdays, where he can develop himself into a strong, healthy young chap, if not into a pro fessional athlete, instead of idling away his time on the streets. The girls and ladies also receive instruc tion, and have use of the gymnasium f.uring certain hours of the day. These classes are under the direction of Mr. Lawrence Bass.and he is prov ing a competent instructor. I Prof. Hillebrand, who has the class at night, is what is known as the strong man, lifting a barrel of water with his teeth. He is also a good acrobat and wrestler and has a stand ing offer of $25 to the man he fails to throw Last night the members of the gymnaisum gave a smoker. KING'S DAUGHTERS MEETING.

The two nights at the Grand Opera House this week Were notabla for the excellency of the companies appearing and the large attendance on both oc casions. On Monday night Black Patti's Tronbadonra were greeted by a fine honsa. The gallery was packed .and jammed with the colored f olkett, while the pit was comfortably filled. The Black Patti troupe numbers more people this season than were with it two seasons ago when it was here, and is even better than then. Nearly every member of the company made good in whatever part they undertook. The chorus is nicely, balanced and their operatic selections were , np to the standard. Patti's solos were thoroughly enjoyed and she was re called many times, John Rncker.tbe , Alabama blossom is one of the best comedians that has appeared on the boards of the Grand, and did not .fail to convulse his hearers with langhter with his wit and comicalities.

Mack Allen, the slack wire equilibrist, gave the audience something entirely new and novel in slack wire work,. something that took steady nerves and great skill to perform. ' Taken altogether the Black Patti troupe is a very credit able orgaanization. , SAUSB'S EL CAPITAN "El Capitan", by the Gran Opera Company, is a comic opera that has delighted the whole country, and the large . audience which gathered on Tuesday night were entirely well pleased. Pretty girls, pretty forms and natty costumes go to make np one of the best chorotses on the road, and the kinging is most excellent.

Miss Coghlan, in the part of Paula Tan qneray, has added "another"-character to her gallery of stage heroines, which reflects the greatest credit - opoa her self as an artiste. Her company is an exceptoinally well chosen one. The characters in aPinero play IjW'iris" "The Notorious Mrs.. Ebbsmith'' and '.' The Gay Lord Quex, "demand actors and actresses who are conversant with : and used to, the variousjtypes of aris tocratic society, and ablej to depioit:. them as if to the manor born. Such a company Miss Coghaln has been surrounded with' by Jules Mnrry.and, whatever may be the opinion'of the audience in regard to the morality : of Paula : Tanqneray as portrayed by Miss Coghlan, the representation of the various ! characters Pinero drew; is true to the author's ideal, as the production has been staged and di-"; rected by one of his trusty stage man agers familiar with the .intention pf; the author and the methods of Signora Duse, ' Mrs. Patrick Campbell' Mrs. Kendall and Olga Nethresole. These artistes and Miss Coghlan are the only ones who have been permitted'by the author to assume this intricate role in, this country. Temperment, ap pearance, ability to display the var ious phases of Paual's ever-changing character, have been the requirments which the author has insisted upon. Many actresses hae felt called upon to assume this part, but few have been chosen, 88 the above list proves. Miss Coghlan's? appearance in "The Second Mrs. Tanqureay" will doubt less attract a goodly audience and a dramattic treat is assured. .
