A stroug, well-balanced play is
"Uncle Hiram," holding its interest
to the end, while its comedy ele
ments are in the highest degree en
tertaining. As the unsophisticated
but withal decidedly sharp old
farmer, "Hiram Homespun," Mr. A.
H. Wood n it 11 has broad opportunity
for the exercise of his excellent
talents as a comedian and author,
and does so with irresistible effect
upon the risibilitiesof theaudience.
It is an immensely catching indi
vidualization. The play is produced
with fine sceucrj-specially painted
for it. Its representation will be
greatly enjoyed, as the company is
also stronir. Numerous soiiirs and
! dances are introduced throughout
the play. Don't miss it. It appears
at the Waterman next Saturday

Clerk Catnpbeil of die district
court, has just recived notice from
Judge Chapman that the February
term of court would not be held, but
would be adjourned at the request
of nearly all the lawyers in the city
until March. This, it is thought,
will be a great saving, as there are
but few casesyet ready for trial and
I these will hardly recpiire the nec-
essary cost of the term. The judge
is at present absent in Chicago.

It Wm Intended for a Soldier,
Knjoyed the Mistake.
One of the leading families in Stutt
gart ave a supper party, to which the
Prince Royal had been invited, says a
writer in Leeds's Mercury. His Royal
Highness arrived a little before all the
preparations for the feast were com
pleted. Observing that he had arrived
a little too soon he decided to take a
stroll in front of the house while day
light was fading into dark. Suddenly
a trim servant maid bounced out of
the house and ran up to the Prince, to
whom she handed a parcel containing,
as it afterward turned out, a large
piece of sausage and some monej",
and exclaimed under her breath:
"You won't have to come to-day;
we're having a little party; the prince
hi..-self is coming; so, good-bye till
to-morrow!'; and with that she gave
his royal highness a couple of hearty
kisses and disappeared before he had
time to get a word out.
A moment later he
perceived a sol-
dier in his cloak, who was eastinr
wistful glances at the lighted windows
of the house, and asked him if his
sweetheart lived there, and on the
man's replying in the affirmative the
"Then this parcel must be intended
for you. The person who brought it
sends you word that you are to come
to-morrow, for she has no time to-day,
on account of the party."
"Much obliged; its all right; I'll
come to-morrow," said the soldier.
"She gave me something besides," the
prince went on to say, "but I can't de
liver you that."
"Oh, you may keep it and welcome,
I've plenty here for to-day."
Everybody at the party noticed that
his highness was more lively and good
humored than usual. He narrated his
adventure over the cigars and wine,
but extracted a promise that neither
the servant girl nor the soldier should
suffer in consequence of the disclca
ur. iMOtice to Debtors.
Any person owiug me on account
is requested to call and settle either
by cash or note by March 1st.
