All our nchool rhiMren are vaccinate!, ami as fast as a new pupil U admitted, it W. comes mandatory that the lo-l m. quircments be obitervcd. It is true. toi. that a very Jarire nercentafe nf the adult popnUtiun are adopting the proper course with reference to vac cination. Those who were anil- nated years ajo, are being revaccl nated, for while a person may sub mit to the operation vear after vear withaut r(Ti-i t. it nho'ul.l Ih and continued until the vaccine acts properly, a person on whom the vaccine fails to operate is suscepti ble tq the dm-ase. and in a p-cat many cases two or three operation are necessary before the svMeru is in condition for succesful results.

Amuse meat.. A fine treat is in store tor the amusement lovers of this city. That inimitable German dialect comedian. Charles A. Gardner, the sweet singer, is to appear at Harper's theatre to night in a new comedv-drama enti tled. -The 1'riJie Winner," by Dr. E. A. Wood and James K. Garcy. As Karl. -The Trize Winner." Mr." Gard ner has ample scope to display his talents as an actor and a singer, and reports of his work pronounce it the hcit of his long career on the stage. Itut '-The Prize Winner" is by no means a one-part or star play ; its characters are all well drawn and will be acted by a company of lirst class players. The scenes and situa tions are" niarvelonsly real and nat ural and the climaxes sufficiently startling to awake the liveliest inter est. An avalanche that buries the principal characters apparently to death is ft lie piece tiiumph of the stage effects. Then there is a great fund of humor in the work, mingled with just enough pathos to make. the play of human interest. Mr. Gardner ha.1 six new songs, set to music by Gustavc II. Kline, com poser of -The Lilas." the following being the titles: "The Turner's Tri umph." "Wand Drill." "If My Heart Could .Speak." "The Butterfly." The Flower Girl," and the "Wed ding Kells.' Ezra Kendall, in hi new play, "The Substitutw." is sure to attract a big house at Harper's theatre on Wedacsdav night. The play has won high favor" from the start and i said "kw. the best in which Mr. Kendall has ever nmcarcil. tittle Arthur ; Dunn of -Tin Soldier." "Crystal Slipper." "Ali Baba." and the "Lit tleOld Man of the Sea" and-Sinbad" is with the company, ami is said ta hac a funnier character than any heretofore.'.

K. hall, Saturday afternoon, before a large number of" ladies, who had liecome interested in the pro cess, and who were more than pleased with the lecture, and the practical demonstrations of the merits of the system given. The ob ject lessons presented were of great value, and afforded much ins-ruction, showing the entire absence of acids or other preparations. The ladies who received, in addi tion to the. advantagejof the lecture, a useful hook containing besides the re cipe for the Blits process, a great deal of household and kitchen information, united n expressing their approba tion of what they had heard and learned, and appended their signa tures to testimonials commending the system to housekeepers.

The colored people are now fur nishing the city with Sensations and bothering the police force considera bly, and 'what is n-re, it really seems the offenders are as slippery as eels. - ' Miss Lizsie Widncr. a domestic!, had an experience last evening, the effects of which she will not soon for get. Miss Widner had been in the upper end of the city visiting friends, and? was returning about 7:30, when at the corner of Twenty-third street and Fifth avenue, she noticed a ne gro following her. She-proceeded down Fifth avenue, and when'' near Nineteenth "tree"t was overtaken by the colored demon, who spoke to her in a most insulting manner, maktug-j ' an indecent proposal.'- The young lady repulsed him. and he then of fered her . money. The larty at tempted to get away from him'.then, but he caught licr by the throat, ami knocked her down. She made a des perate struggle, and shook him off and screamed, whereupon he fled. The young laily regained he feet, and also her voice." and started down Kightet-nth street. Near Yolk's planing mill she was met by August Treruan and Henrv Treman, Jr., and in disconnected (ierman told them her story. The young gent emen went back to the scene of the . stniffjrlc, and recov ered the vouuir woman's hat. hich , had ' : been knocked off by the fiend. A hasty search for the scoundrel was made in vain, and the gentlemen accompanied the lady to the iKlicc station, where Xirht CapU Kramer was made acquainted with the facts and the police were at once put to work on the case, but the description, given by the young woman, is such that it will be hard to find the wretch. The voung ladv's throat is fearful ly swollen, and at the time she met the gallant young men, the imprint of the darkev's lingers' were ulainlv visible. ' v - Pollre Points. Jack Crowlev got free-bretverv- atcd Saturday eveuing.and was fined $3 and costs this morning. William Bratton evidently meant to have a house-warming at his resi dence Sunday, as he was caught Sat- uruay evening in the act of stealinc coal from the C, K. I. & P. railroad company, and .taken to the Ar mory. This morning he was taken lieforc Magistrate Schroeder on tho charge of larceny, aiid there ho told ne was guilty, but he claimed to lie out of work and funds and gave that as an excuse for stualinr the coal. He was bound over in ;i0 bonds to the January term of court. Hans Gibson and Aron Rvberg, two men frum.MoIine. came to Rock Island and"" proceeded to fill them selves with au unlimited amount of booze. The result was that last eve ning when the Salvation Army came out on Market square the boys were anxious to join, ana Kylicrg who, y the wav, is about six feet tall, insisted upon the army singing "anoder song," and in fact made himself so disagreeable that Officer Ryan, who was passing, took the two to the sta tion. When the fetation was reached Kyberg insisted on going home, but the officer was-too much for him, and he was put in No. 3." This morn ing Magistrate Schroeder assessed Gibson f3 and costs for plain drunk enness, and Kyberg $3 and costs for disorderly conduct. He had $2.25, and on his - word be wished to be allowed to go to Moline and get the monev. but this was refused him. Then he made a most pitiful plea for release on tne ground of a sick wife. but I nief Sexton has some stone in the city yards now. and he wants the uammurs kept bright. The W ind Scraped the Mont Cleaa. Captain Hurlbnt of the British bark Ejirman B. LaVr considers himself Cur tuuate in coming out of a terrible ty phoon in the China seas, not without a scratch, but without the loss of any of his crew or even of" a Bjiar or sail. This is his experience its he related it: "We loft Sourabaya, Java, bound for the Columbia river. All went wall for tiie first Week. The men put in their time well about tho chip, und one par ticular job that was attended to was painting tho inizzeutopmast. This vaa wood, the other masts and topmasts being iron. I noticed that the point cn the spar blistered more or less under tho tropical fun. "One fane afternoon, under clear sky. the storm came on us. There was hardly any warning.
