Cap. Shannon is right after Thomp
son in the matter of inventions. Cap
is a married man, and always has to
put up the clothes line, and knows
something of the vexations connected
therewith. He has devised a little
cast iron plate that fastens on to the
post, into which is Gtted a little arm
through which the line is run that
fastens itself and the heavier the
weight is on the line the tibghler it
fastens. Time forbids a more minute
discription of it at present, but we will
give ono next week.

Roberts os an Actor.
Last night we were summoned to
witness a private exhibition of Rolliu
Roberts' powers as an actor.
AVe have several times been asked
why we did not reply to Roberts' chal-
enge to editors, and until recently we
did not know what was meant by the
question. Mr. Roberts, in his circular
programme, is claiming to be the most
gifted, if nt the most skillful, elocu-
tiouest, mimic and ventriloquist of the
United States, if not the world.
His circular is entirely too long for
us to publish in full, and comment ou
He expresses a belief that there is a
combination of leading actors, whom
his advancement would most effect,
contributing towards a corruption
fund which is being used to keep him
out of his profession. We can only
state that we have seen no evidence of
any such thing.
AV'e are not prepared to either in
dorse or deny his claim. lie began
his performance with what is general
ly termed lightning changes, and kept
up one continual change to the closo.
He is claiming to be the master of
nineteen distinct human voices, with
at least twelve of them complete in
song all in the aame key if required.
We made no note of the number of
voices, and we are not sufllciently up
in sound to distinguish and mark the
differeuco between complete chancre
and subchmige of voice, etc.
He resolved himself from one charac
ter into another so readily and so suc
cessively that were he to claim to be
tho master of fifty voices we could not
demy it, wo know so little about the
:Vs a ventriloquist he handled his
little wooden men, or puppetts with a
skill which we would not attempt to
criticise. Everything was real: the
puppetts talked, the voice was in the
box, the man was down below, and
counted the stairs as he came up, nine
teen in all. It was simply the best
that we have sa:.'u, we can say no more.
It may or may not bi the best before
the public, we are not prepared to de
cide. The selection in elocution was en
titled "Shamus O'Brien," which Was
also beyond our criticism. AV'e con
sidered the rendition simply grand
but from not having seen enough of
the celebrites to educate us up to the
mark, we will be ob.iged to alse pasa
this matter without an opinion as to
the real extent of merit.
On the whole, we consider Mr. Rob
erts an adept in his profession, and al
though we do not credit his being pre
vented by a combination of actors, we
do not understand why he is not filling
a high position in his profession in
stead f being obliged to appeal for an
opening at any price. His proposition
is liberal enough, but were there two
fortunes embodied in this one oppor
tunity, we are so situated that we
could not at present embrace it. Fur
thermore it is out of our line, but were
we able aiM desirous of speculating in
the theatrical business, we would ak
nothing better than is offered by Mr.
Roberts, and we do not believe that
many theatrical managers would ex
amine his merits without giving him
We incline to th belief that Mr.
Roberts' own diffidence is the barrier
of his success. AVe have been acquaint
ed with him for nearly three years and
to this day he has not presented us
with one of his circular programmes ,
although he appeals to the press for
indorsement. AVe wish him every
success in the future.

Col. E- P. Roggen went out to Ildst-
iug4 yesterday to atteud a meeting of the
reunion committee which is held there
today, for the purpose of making ar
rangements for the grand army reunion.
The principal matter that will be con
sidered will be the miestion of tents or
other protection. It Denver ijets ihj
1,000 tents she luu applied for to be used
duriuff the grand national encanln-
ment there, it is thought that they
can bo secured on their way back, for
U3d at Hastings. If this can not be
done it is possible that no applica
tion will be made for tents, but that
barracks will be built.
Mr. Roggen informs us that the
state of Mississippi has extended an
invitation to the Nebraska National
guards to participate iu a grand prize
drill, to ho held at Xovv Orleans some
time next summer. The first prize
will be 1,09 and the second $1,000.'
It promises to be a magnificent affair.
