A refreshing novelty after the flood of lurid melodrama, putrid society dramas and stale farces, is the engagement of the Flints and Miss Ada St. Claire, the phe nomenal contralto, at the Grand Opera House, commencing Monday, April 19th. for six performances only. There is .v fascination about these weird entertain ments. an entrancing delight, as refresh ing ag , spice-laden June breeze. All en joy them: many laugh who have ne\er laughed before. Business cares vanish, physical troubles are forgotten, and all the spectators give themselves tip to the de light of an entertainment which is at once instructive and amusing, ever refined, and free from all traces of vulgarity. On Monday night one lady will be admitted free with every paid reserve stat ticket. Manager Reister announces ns the at traction at the Opera House Thursday night the De Pasquail Grand Opera Com pany. who will produce “Cavalcria Rus* tlcana" and an act each of “Martha" and "Faust." Of Rlgnorina Malanda uar berinl, the prlma dor.na contralto, ex changes say: “Young, beautlftil and tal ented. with a voice of unusually tine qual ity. which has l»cen trained In the best schools of this and her native country. Signorina Barberini will admirably per form the contralto roles of the company’s repertoire.” "She sang ’O rr.io Fernando’ with en ormous success, and was obliged to re spond with an encore."—St. Louis Post. “Her success was great. Her voice is beautiful and clear."—St. Louis Globe Democrat. The Wash-Jeff Glee. Banjo and Mandolin Clubs will give a concert at the Opera House this evening, and the advance sale of si ats indicates that they will be greeted by a large and fashionable audience. A number of prominent society ladles are patronesses of the affair. The programme embraces some very tuneful selections, and the well earned reputation of the clubs justifies the promise of an evening of rare musical enjoyment. All arrangements have been completed for the production of "Our American Cousin" by the Carroll Dramatic Club to night. The last rehearsal will be he’d this afternoon, under tha direction of Mr. A. T. Ray. Nearly every reserved chair has been marked off the diagram, but there are still a few choice scats left. The pre sentation of the drama promises to bo very artistic. The cast of characters was published in t'^/Sunday Regisb r. and in eludes some of the he«t amateur dramatic talent in the city. The music will he fur nished by the Opera House orchestra, and the stage will be in charge of Mr. Rich ardson. -o 9, Ladies’ Fabric Gloves, L j. til* worth more than double. GEO. M.

Stewart Grows Despondent and Walks Into the River. His Body Found Early Yesterday Mornin? at the Mouth of Cald well’s Run by a Party on His way to Church—Leaves a Wife und Seven Children—Bid Them All Goodbye, Saying That He Would Never See Them Again-Des pondent Because He Could Not Get Work. About half-past six o'clock yesterc]^ morning a West Wheeling man by he name of Bbeling. while coming across the river to go to early church on this side found the body of a man floating in th river about three or four feet trom the shore, just above the mouth of Caldwells run. , _, He brought the body to the shore and notified Coroner Schultze of his discover}. A few minutes afterward the bank was crowded with people. Coroner Schultze examined the body and found it to l»o that of William Stewart, a well known bricklayer, who lives at the head of Twelfth street. ^ The body was removed to Frank Schroeder’s undertaking establishment, on South Chapllne street, where an inquest was held by the Coroner y> sterday after noon. The body was in an excellent state of preservation, and it was the opinion of the undertaker, physician and Coroner that it had. not btvn in the water more than two or three hours. A friend of the family who was present at the inquest gave evidence that proved ( pretty conclusively that the deceased died by committing suicide. He stated that Stewart, while a good workman, had been out of work all winter ana nuu very despondent and had started to drink ing. He is not supposed, however, to have been drinking just previous to his death. For several months he has tried to get work, and has made several trips to get work elsewhere. His family were in sore straits, and he went to Pittsburg recently to make a final attempt to get work, but failed, and returned home on Saturday very down-hearted. His wife states that he was more down-hearted than usual, and shortly after midnight left home, after bidding her and the children all good-bye. telling them that they would never sec him again. His wife supposed that he intended to leave on another trip, and did not attach, particular importance to his statement. Stewart was a Scotchman, about forty years of age. He has been living in this country about seven years, and leaves a wife an<l seven children In very poor cir cumstances. He was a member of tho local bricklayers' union, and from a card found in his clothes is supposed to be a member of tho Ohio Valley Renefit Asso ciation. Coroner Schultz* did not finish his inquest until last evening. It was thought at first that Stewart’s death may have been due to an accident, caused by attempting to jump a freight train, and to have roiled down over the hank. Bruises were found under the left eye. which looked like the imprint of a person's fist, but there is no plausible evidence that Stewart came to his death except by de liberately drowning himseif. If he hail fallen from a train, his body would have be* n bruised, as the bank whore ho was found is very steep and covered with sharp rocks. -O-; Don’t fail to hear the W. & J. boys at Opera House on the 20th.
