A Tribute to the Pike at
the St.
Louis Exposition.
While the various concessionaries
at previous expositions have endeav
ored to reproduce the midway attrac
tion, the wonderful mysteries of the
oriental, eastern countries, it has re
mained for that typical ethnological
artist, (laston Akoun. to bring before
the visitors at the St. Louis purchase
exposition an aggregation of the mag
nificent splendors of oriental life in
the east which for brilliancy, magni
tude and active natural portrayal by
means of real life exhibits has, un
doubtedly, eclipsed anything in this
line ever before attempted.
Mr. Akoun. who is a Parisian by
birth, has the advantage of former
experiences at no less than 1" previous
expositions, where his marvelous suc
cess were continually repeated, and as
a successful caterer to tin amusement,
loving public his fame spread far and

historical Delhi. Calcutta with its pic
turesque bungalows, and decorated
buildings, grill workers, with their

Be ramie panels, carved in inlaid wood.
Bazars teeming with commercial ac

picturesque costume of their native
country, form a part of the attractions.
Ceylon, with its attractive tea hotises
and kiosks, inside of which the visitors
witness the process of drying and roll
ing tea. which is served by native
Singalese in purely oriental fashion:
Bumiah. the land of white elephants,
its idolatrous inhabitants and the Gol
den Temple of Rangoon: Burmese mu
sicians playing upon their peculiar na
tive Instruments and Burmese dancing
girls doing their fantastical and reli
gious lances. A point of interest, is
Persia, the mysterious country of
Asia, with its rug markets, architectur
al buildings, caravans, sedan chairs,
dromedaries, etc. In the bazars are
seen types of Persian traders showing
the art of weaving rugs. There are
brass chiselers. candy makers, foriune
tellers and fakirs displaying and sell
ing their wares, consisting of silks,
draperies, laces, ornaments, embroi
deries, jewelry and other articles seen
in course of manufacture by natives.
In connection with this special
amusement ftature is a beautiful and
conspicuous building erected in the
original oriental style of architecture,
known as the oriental theatre, where
performers from the oriental coun
tries appear in numerous and amus
ing features. N'autch, jar, castanette
and all charac; eristic national dances
are given in the oriental style of
their respective countries. Grand par
ades.representing the rajah and the
gorgeous Durbar festival, take place
hourly. On a gorgeously caparisoned
elephant, driven by Hindoos, holding
heavy silver spears and attended by
native musicians beating tom-toms
and playing upon flutes and other na
tive instruments, the rajah is seated
in a golden embroidered hoodah. Ele
phants carrying kiosks loaded with
passengers are followed by a multitude
of singing and shouting natives, riding
in every description of conveyance
typical of their native countries. The
entire production cost over (206,600.
For the past two years Mr. Akoun
has had abroad special representatives
in search of new attractions, and at
considerable risk and expense, ob
tained the consent of the various
tribal kings and rulers to allow their
subjects to leave their native coun
try. In the entire reproduction there
are upwards of 750 people, including
zneu, women and children.
A lad named Bosen, residing in
the neighborhood of Eleventh and l.e
Claire streets, had a narrow escape
fro mserious accident Wednesday, lie
riding a bicycle and attempted to
cross the Third street railway tracks-
bet ween Party and Rock Island streets
immediately in front of a car. Motor-
man James Jacobs saw that the tad
couldn't make it and applied the
brakes stopping the car. but not before
the fender had struck the bicycle and
knocked it and the rider off the track
onto the pavement. The lad luckily
escaped without injury.
lid. J. Carroll, the prominent and
popular young attorney, who is also
secretary of the Davenport Abstract
company, sprung a clever surprise
Wednesday evening upon his many
friends by being quietly married at
the home of his brother, A. E. Carroll,
17"i. Parnate street. The bride to the
happy event was Mi.-s l.ydia Keller,
one of the charming young ladies of
Wheatland. The ceremony was per
formed at b o'clock by Rev. Father
Hogan in the presence of relatives
only. A bountiful supper followed
after which the happy young couple
received the congratulations of their
many friends and repaired to their fu
ture homo on Winthrop avenue, where
they will start immediately to house
keeping. They will take a wedding
trip later.
The recently organized local auto
mobile club enjoyed its run last Sun
day so thoroughly that the members
have projected a second one for the
coming Sunday. Arrangements are
not yet completed but it is thought
that the objective point will be Crys
tal lake in he vicinity of DeWitt. A
committee is looking over the road to
day to find the advantages and objec
tions pertaining to a trip in that di
rection. Maud Jones, the negress, arrested
by the night captain on the cbarce
of leading an immoral life, and who
asked to have a chance to dispute the
charge, was placed on trial before
Magistrate Finger yesterday. A resi
dent on Rock Island street between
Fourth and Fifth streets, gave dam
aging testimony against the woman,
who said she was married and a
boarder at the old Sargeaut home on
Blast Fifth street near Iowa. She was
according fined and costs, failing
to pay, she was sent to jail for ten
At a meeting of the Nort invest Dav
enport Turners the erection of a new
brick gymnasium to cost $7,'uo was
talked over. The new building Is to
be situated in the rear of the hall.
Nothing definite was done in the mat
ter however. The next meeting of the
society win be held Monday evening.
Til' stage of the Northwest Turner
hall has been torn out and it is most
likely that the contract for finishing
the interior of the hall will bo let at
the meeting next Monday.
The notice of the dissolution of the
Schaffer Manufacturing company
which was capitalized at 116,890, has
been filed with the county recorder.
The concern did business in the man
ufacture of garmenis in this city and
later became the Davenport Garment
Manufacturing company of which F.
G. Clausen was the president and
Herman G. Pape. the secretary. The
Davenport Garment Manufacturing
company later sold out to the Ilanna
Manufacturing company, and has de
cided to quit business. It therefore
flies notice that, by the vote of its
stockholders and directors, as pro
vided in the articies, it will cease to
do business under the statutes.
Coroner Lambach decided that no
inquest was necessary over the body
of John Munson, the young laborer
in the I. & I. camp near Princeton,
who was found dead in his bed the
other day. The voting man had been
a sufferer from tuberculosis, and it
was evident that it was that malady
which suddenly summoned him. Mun
son had no relatives or intimate
friends in this vicinity and his body
was therefore shipped to a sister re
siding at Omaha. Neb., for interment.
DeKalb and Sycamore, Enemies 50
Years, About to Bury Hatchet.
As the splendid new DeKalb county
court house nears completion at Syca
more, all the talk of attempt to again
take up the fight for the removal of
the county seat is vanishing, and the
chances are that the old sore will be
allowed to heal over, and become but
a scar on the history of the county.
The building is nicely completed as
far as the outside work is concerned
and by January 1 the interior will
have been finished and delivered to
the officials who are to occupy it. The
structure cost in round numbers, $1P -'
and it will be as handsome a
building as one would wish to see.
Not long ago the DeKalb band made
a trolley trip to Sycamore and ser
enaded the residents of the town,
stopping in front of the court house
to play several pieces. A large num
ber of the bard wire city people at

July 4. and taken altogether, the hand
writing on the wall looks as if the
hatchet was to be buried for the first
time in 50 years.
