The steamer St. Paul of the Dia
mond Jo fleet, is to be put in commis
sion in the through service between St
Louis and St. Paul about June 25. The
steamer has been in the company's
yards at Dubuque, and has been thor
oughly overhauled. It is expected
that the steamer Quincy will also be
brought out early in July. The Sid
ney, which is at present handling the
through business alone, will be run in
connection with the St. Paul, but will
probably be withdrawn when the
Quincy is put on. The Quincy is be
ing remodeled, and will have the ap
pearance of a new boat when she is
put in service again.
Rivermen on the packets and
through lines welcome the hot weath
er, as it will greatly increase their
traffic. Up to the present time the
packets have been doing scant busi
ness in the passenger trade, but with
warmer weather the business is cer
tain to pick up and assume normal
proportions with the freight service.
CARL HAGENBECK'S SHOW
Including a Menagerie of Trained Wild
Beasts Worth a Million.
If proof is required that the exhibi
tion which comes to Rock Island on
Saturday, June 17, under the unassum
ing title of "The Carl Hagenbeck Train
ed Wild Animal Show," Is a very ex
traordinary and attractive one, it is
furnished in unquestioned volume by
that show's seven months' phenomenal
popularity as the most successful en
tertainment on the Pike at the recent
St. Louis world's fair, and the further
fact that, in the estimation of at least
several millions, it ranked as one of
the greatest features of that great ex
position itself. We are assured, and
there does not seem the slightest rea
son to doubt the truth of the assertion,
that we shall see it here, not only just
as it was presented there, but with
several wonderfully notable additions.
The modest, retiring gentleman whose
name it bears is famous as the largest
wild beast dealer in the world, 9S per
cent at least of which zoological gar
dens and circuses he has supplied with
all of their animal attractions and
equally so for his unprecedented and,
judging from previous results, impos
sible success in subduing and teach
ing the fiercest, and even what have
heretofore been classed as untamable,
creatures, by methods peculiarly his
own. In which intimate knowledge of
the habits and dispositions of his huge
and savage pupils, and the substitution
of intimate and fearless association.
and of inexhaustibly patient kindness,
in place of brutal coercion and the au
thority of the lash are manifest.
The fact that it is far away the finest
collection of animals ever brought be
fore us is an important one, but, at
that, merely Incidental in connection
with that other unprecedented one,
that it is a menagerie, every one of its
00 superb specimens is a performer.
and in most instances introduced in
most intimate association with other
beasts, by nature its implacable foes.
and but recently equally hated and
feared, or preyed upon by one another.
For example, in one mixed group we
find a monster and magnificent lion
tiger hybrid bred by Mr. Hagenbeck,
and the only one of its kind associa
ted in thrilling acrobatic acts and an
tics with two lions, three tigers, two
leopards, two pumas, two polar bears
and four great Dane dogs. A second
tremendous group contains seven gi
gantic polar bears, those Arctic ter
rors until recently, when Mr. Hagen
beck began systematically handling
thein, classed as hopelessly implaca
ble whose feats sensationallv sug
