NEW BUSINESS BLOCKS.
Prospects That Rock Island Will
Have Several JSvxt Season.
IjWWS liKlUHT SIDE.
A Wholesale limine and a Manic
Company Talk t Khcwins
Their Pnblie Spirit.
Readers of Tbr Ar,us are familiar
with what Rock Islanc has done in the
way of building improvements the past
threo seafons, and onlj a few weeks ago
they had laid before them an exhibit cov
ering columns of this p iper of what was
done last year. In tte ssma connection
the prediction was mac t that the ap
proachinp; season would witness more ex
tensive operations in the building line
than either of the years preceding.
Already evidences t.re manifest tLat
this assertion will be amply verified, and
the further gratifying fact is presented that
while there are prospec 8 of a great many
new houses in all parts of the city, the
ndications are too, tht there will be a
number of new business blocks erected.
A number of our representative public
spirited business firms have found that
thej have outgrown stores long occupied
and that tbey must find more room. To
accomplish this end they have deter
miued to make the move alluded to, and
while woikinR to their own advantace
will also work to the advantage of the
city. A wholesale house will probably
be one of the first firms to make this des
parture, and while a member of the firm
was reticent when ques.ioued on the sub.
ji-'ct this morting.acd st.id that plans were
not yet fully matured, there is no doubt
that the firm will build a modern business
block for i!s own use early in the spring.
The manager of a prominent music house
whose lease on the stcre long occupied
has expired, said yestetday that this com
p .ny would be very apt. to build in the
spring. "We are locking for a site
now," he sa:d, "and if we can find one
we'll put up a building which will include
1 a conservatory of music also."

The always popular and excruciatingly
funny comedy, A Pair of Kids" was pre-,
eented at Harper's theatre last evening by
Ezra Kendall and his company of laugh
producing artists. Mr. Kendall appeared
in his original charactr of Jiles Button
in itself a citation, whil i Misses Jessie
Bertmfm and Jennie Dunn were the lead
ing artists in the soubrette role. The
play has lost none of its Urong features
by its long run. and is today as fresh and
er joyable us when it was first put befoie
the American public. There is plenty of
tinol.jociionahle fun, plenty of vocal
m.Mc aud enough of a plot to keep every
thing lively and that is what the people
expect when they go to see a play of this
Kind. There was a large audience pres
ent last evening.
The New York Symphony club gave a
concert at the First Baptist church last
eyening which was well attended and
highly erj iyed. The club is composed
cf the following artists: Charles F. Hig
gins, violin virtuo o; Enrichetta Ed cs,
soprano; Agnes Florian, contralto; Rus
dolf Von Scirpa, pianist, and U. Corne
lius, clarinet soloist. The programme
was vaiied and fcffrded opportunity for
much artistic work which the members
of the club were fu'ly equal to.
Dr. Herbert L. Flint, the mesmerist,
opened with the first of hi3 series of
tests at Turner hall last evening. His
performance was prefaced with a short
lecture on tbis phenomena after which he
gave numerous tes'.s of his ability ia his
line which were heartily et joyed by those
who went to pass the time, and gave
much food for profound thoHgbt to
those who view it from a scientific stand
point. He will probably be greeted by a
crowded house tbis evening.
The next attraction at Harper's will be
the famous Chanfrau in his familiar cora-edy-draraa,

The famous Hanlons are to appear at

week. "Fantaf mi" :s a spectacle, a pan
tonine. The scenery is fresh and mag
citicent, and the effects arc startling and
thoroughly amusing. In this production
tbe inventive genius of the Hanlons
shines very conspicuously. Tne tricks
which are connected with the scenery
and paraphernalia used in "Fanta&ma"
are surprising and highly amusing. To
attempt description would convey but a
faint idea of the beauties, the highly pic
