Peck fc Foreman's Mammoth Specta
ular Double -Uncle Tom's Cabin" com
pany gave a clever presentation of th e
dramatic version of Harriet Beecber
Stowe's novel at nrper's theatre last
evening. The various parts were well
sustained and the music by the tpscial
fenestra an entertaining feature.
The most recent successful spectacular
play, "The Bottom of the Sea," will be
presented at Harpers theatre text
Wednesday evening. The piece is a de
cided novelty, and its production in other
cities has attracted crowds. It is said to
be one e-f the most marvelous scenic plays
f this generation, and to savor of the
weird imaginativeness of Jules Verne.
The scenes are said to be artistic
and mechanical triumphs in their
way, presented with surprising
elaboration in detail. An ocean
steamer, the laying of a submarine
cable, the wreck of a vessel, and the res
cue of the passengers are all vividly pic
tured. The height of this sensational
realism is shown in the descent of divers
to the "dark, unfathomed caves of th e
oceans," the repairing of a broken cable,
and an attack on the divers by an enor
mous ect'ipjs. The company presenting
the piece is said to ba good, and a fine
production throughout is promised. In
addition to securing this attraction Man -ager
Montrose has succeeded in making
a permanent arrangement with Supt
Schnitger as to street cars. Hereafter a
blue car will be at the theatre after all
entertainments, running to Moline, via
Edgewood park, and the fare will be bu t
five cents after 10 o'clock, instead of te n,
as the ordinance permits.
The Argtjb has received advanced proofs
of Btone's new directory cf R:ck Island as
far as it has gone, and enough has been
seen to warrant the belief that it is to be
the most accurate and creditable index to
Rock Island that has been compiled.
Stone & Co. have evidently neither spared
time nor expense to fulfill their promises,
and when their volume reaches us all
will readily see that the book is as tear
perfect as human hands can make it. It
will be indexed, viz : Rock Wand, Milan,
U. 8. Arsenal, Stewartville and Moline,
and will be bound with a leather back
bone and paper sides, making a modern
work that will compare favorably with
any book that is printed. The street di
rectory, which is a new feature, will also
prove of great advantage to those refer
ring to this new guide to our city. Rock
Island needs a good directory, the merci
ful powers know, and The Abgus be
lieves Stone &Co. will supply that need.
Any man can take a ..daily newspaper.
It is the cheapest thing he can buy. truth
fully remaiks an exchange. Every time
a hen chucks and has laid an egg, his pa
per is paid for that day. It costs a post
age stamp the same that it costs to send
a tingle letter. What good does it do
J ou? It instructs you and your wife, and
educates your child-ien. It comes to you
every day, rain or shine, calm or storm,
bringing you the news of the busy world -No
matter what happens, it enters your
door every day as a welcome friend, full
of sunshine, cheer and interest. It opens
the door of the great world and puts you
face to face with its people and its great
events. It shortens the long summer
days and enlivens the long winter nights.
It is your adviser., your gossip and your
friend. No man is just to his children
who does not give them a daily paper to
read. No man is good to himself and
wife. who. does not take a good daily
paper.. ". v. ; . i

During a little entertainment at the res

attracted by a noise in the hall, and the
captain investigating as to the cause
found a strange man about 50 years of
age tbere,who while not naturally repul

nevertheless so much under the influence
of booz) that he was unable to give a
clear and comprehensive explanation of
the whys, wherefores and whereof s of the
situation and the captain escorted him to
police headquarters. There he gave his
name as W . W. Worley, of Aledo, said be

on business and had perhaps indulged a
little too freely in old time associations,
though he was not nowadays a habitual
drinker. He was walking along Second
avenue, he said, and was attracted by the

and the sound of merriment within and

to enter and he had just stepped into the
hall, when diecovered, but that be had
no evil intentions whatever. Ha had in
