N LYCEUM SCORES AGAIN CHICAGO GLEE CL' B MADE BIT AT ' THE ACAIEHT LAST NIGHT. ^ S (October, 26.) e The second number of the Char- leston Lyceum was greeted by an t( enthusiastic but altogether too small 11 audience at theAcademy of Music last night. From the first number to the last everything was encored, and \ tth Chicago Glee Club must have i flattered by the warmth of the reception given it. r The evening opened with an ex- I t cellent rendition of Dudley Buck's 'On the Sea" as an encore to Water e Lilies, which quite won the audience n "Peter Piper" was given. This was excruciatingly funny. The trombone qviartette 'did very well with the , "Pilgrim's Chorus" from "Tannhau ser." Mr Dixon made a hit with his character sketch, "The Hoosier." His makeup was good and he was able to work in some of Riley's poems with delightful effect. Mr, Dixon did not exaggerate wherefore perhaps, his humor would not have lC been appreciated by some, but the is points were plain well taken and 3- thoroughly enjoyed by e r ir.t'lligent, IS audience. Jy The Charleston Lyceum has pr*j duced two offerings so far this seaan son and both of them have been exit cellent. Those who were not at the d. Academy of Music last night missed a treat.

It is natural that the price of seed should go high, because of the short ness of the crop, but th ; competit , ion between the oil mills has been y0 responsible for some of the jumi s. There seems to be more competit ion among the oil mills than there U between the cotton mills, and at ti nes it has been very lively. Last . w week the price of seed got up to 5( ^ cents per bushel on account cf contests between local buyers, but th< orice did not stay at this figure Ion; nor did it reach this high notch ai more than one or two places. Th< high price of seed means high pri ces tor all seed products, of coursr rh mills can now sell their oil at at 42 jr4d cents per gallon, and sm.c ^ of the mill men think it will go high er yet. Meal is quoted at $80 pei ton and hulls at $8 per ton.
