remarkably successful in the cast.
Mr. t'uitis , in the matter of now iilays ,
is like Mr. llarrett. The latter , although
posseting strong plays , yet never hesi
tates to make nso of anew one when it
strikes his fancy. Mr. Curtis' big suc
cess has been Sam'l 1'osen. He is now
producing his .second one , and .still has
in preparation a third one , which lie will
produce in San Francisco , sometime next
month. This is by a former resident of
Omaha , Charles liaswlt/ , brother of Sum
and Henry Baswitof this city. The
name of the niece is "Jnkov Kinstein or
Life on the Head , " and of course is sup
posed to depict the joys and sorrows , the
trials and tribulations of the Knight of
the grip. It is an old subject , but it is
understood to have been handled in a
rcfivshing manner. Mr. Curtis is pleased
with it , and will produce it in San Fran
cisco on Juno Till.

Prof Kennedy found homo trouble in
securing subjects for his experiments.
Finally the ice was broken by a coal-black
negro , who stumbled up the aisle to the
stage , amid the laughter of the audience.
Several oilier men and boy.s followed ,
until the subjects for the mesmeric ex
periments numbered four or live. The
results attained by the professor were
wonderful. One of the best mesmerised
subjects was the negro. The professor
handled him like a child , making him go
through with all sorts of contortions , at
will. He made the darkey turn his coat

allowed to sow through the ears anil ,
checks of the subject who did not wince
once duriiig the operation , but went on
lingering his imaginary banjo.
The last experiment , was most ludi
crous of all. The professor asked the
darky if ho would not like to cat some
ice cream and cake. "No , sah , " replied
the subject promptly ; "I'so done got to
go now. My gal , she wants to see mo ,
and I UuMi't stay no longah. "

of delight all the while. Ttaw potatoes
ami onions were placed before him for

apparently with the greatest zest. Sud
denly the professor brought him out of
the trance.
Tlio darkey fell to blaspheming and de
manded an explanation ot the stranga
predicament in which he found hUnself
his mouth full of cormneal , raw onions
and potatoes. When told that ho had
been mesmerised , hn shook his list at the
professor , and left the stage amid the
cheers of the delighted audience.
The untortainmcnt as a whole is by far
the best that has been given at the Pee

Some time ago there came to this city
a party named James Newman. Ho had
boon among railroad men for a long time ,
and liad but recently acted as Hroman on
the Chicago & Alton road , and resided at
Illoomington. liurbank , the Sixteenth
street saloonkeeper , was one of the
men with whom ho worked and to whom
ho frat ! applied in coming to this city.
Some time ago lie left the city , gem < to
Illinois , where ho has since been. What
ho has been doing them is not known ,
butsonio of his acquaintances assume
that his conduct probably warrants sus
picion from thu fact that information is
bought of him in the following telegram :

Newman's marital obligations in ( Ids
vicinity arc not well known , but the fore
going will probably bring the matter to
the burfaco. Ollioer O'Hoyle is looking
up the case and will probably learn all
the essentials.

Tlio Hevlvnl Services rtt the Christian
Church Air. Harrow' * Sermon.
The discourse of Hcv II. C. Barrow last
evening was of unusual interest. The
text was Acts 8-1 ; "Tnoreforo they that
were scattered abroad went everywhere
preaching the word. " What is said of one Is
said of all ; all wore preachers ; all did not
formerly occupy pulpits , but each in
their own way preached "tho word. "
"Philip went down to Samaria and
preached Christ unto them"1 and in Acts
U-13 wo have a model report of the result
of a series of meetings ! "When they be
lieved Philip preaching the things con
cerning the Kingdom of God
and the name of Jesus Christ , they wore
bapti/.ed botli men and women , "
_ A11 -nice/1 , meetings held upon the
i\ow Testament plan can be reported in
precisely the same language , substituting
the name of the preacher and tlio place
where thu meetings me held for Philip
and Samaria. In the conversion of the
Ethiopian eunuch , God employed as
agents an amrel , the Holy Spirit and a
preacher. The angel and the Holy Spirit
wens sent to the preacher to direct him to
the man to be converted.
"Preaching Jesus" to the eunuch led
him to ask , "What hinders mo to bo bap
tised ? " This inquiry was the result of
preaclmiji Jesus , and if JOMIS is now
preached in the same way , thu same re
sults will follow. Those who fully and
faithfully preach Jesus , announce Ins last
and only oiler of pardon to the whole
world , "Pivaeh the gospel to every crea
ture , and ho that helluveth and is bap
tised shall bo saved. " This will account
for the inquiry of tlio ouiiueh.
They came unto the water , went down
both into it , he baptUed him , came up
out of the water , and the eunuch wont on
his way rejoicing. This is a model conver
sion , left upon record as a precedent for
our guidance. Those who believe what the
Kthuopian believed , confess as ho con-
fessi'cl , the divinity and sonship of Jesus ,
and do what he did , and for the same
purpose , havu thu .same grounds for ro-
jolcmgthat ho had.
These services will be continued
through the week.
The Aim of tlio Itovivallflt anil People
of St. Mary'n Avcimo Con-jro-
Kntloimt Church.
Gospel services were continued yes
terday in the St. Mary's avenue church ,
conducted by Itov. W. M. Wellman ,
evangelist. There were present also the
pastor , Uev. Willard Scott , Hev. J. L
Mailc , Rev Gco. E. Albrecht , Rev. G. A.
Taylor and Messrs. J. K. Johnston , and
E. C. B. Uarker , evangelists , who were
passing through the city.
The meeting opened with "Marching
to Xion , " and prayer was cfl'ered by Mr.
Albrecht. Mr. Williams' sermon was
from Matt. vi. 83 : "Seek ye first the king
dom of God and His righteousness , " em
phasis being laid upon tlio latter clause.
Many are seeking the kjngdom of God ,
but uo not desire His righteousness. A
religion which has any hope of the future
is now possessed of some of the righteous
ness of the future. Only the pure in
heart and life shall sou Grid in peace.
After the sermon a testimony meeting
was held , at which twenty gave expres
sion to their experience and confidence.
The spirit of the service was very ten
der and several announced themselves
for the first time as Christians.
The meetings will bo continued each
evening of this week until Saturday.
"Progress" Progressive.
For several weeks back there has boon
a paper published in this city called
"Progress. " It aimed to be friendly to
the Knights of Labor , though it hardly
slated that it was authorized to speak for
them. It yet persisted in pajinir a great
deal of attention to labor matters of
which not n little was devoted to the or
ganization in question. It is claimed that
a line at the head of the editorial columns
in which only friendship to
the order was intended to bo
expressed , was considered as capable of
misleading unwary people , and its re
moval was demanded by the knights
through a letter sent the publishers a few
days ago. The latter promised to comply
with the demand , but , if reports be true ,
they not only struck out the line in ques
tion but also that setting forth that Kcv.
W. E. Copclandyas the editor of the pa
per. The latter line was struck out and
Mr. Copeland know nothing of the fact
until last week's paper appeared without
his name appearing. The removal of his
name was followed by the dispensing
with his services at fifteen dollars a week.
It was also followed by thu retirement of
the solicitor for advertisements. John
Hannon. The ofl'onso committed by both
editor and solicitor is probably that they
arc mombtT.s of the Knights oi Labor. D
IIospo'H Omaha Kvhlhlt.
One of the finest and most cleverly ar
range exhibits now in the opposition
building is thu first one on'the left side as
one enters the structure from the west
door. It is that of A. Hospo , the well-
known music and art dealer of Omaha.
Mr , H. has aimed to lay before the phar-
maccutial convention a full line of drug
gists art sundries , vases and mouldings in
wliich ho does a jobbing business. In
making a complete , handftomo and tasti
ly arranged exhibit , ho has certainly
succeeded most admirably.
In the way of art supplies there are
tube colors , brushes of all description ,
pasudlcs , palettes and general artists'
materials , together with a full line of
plaqnos'of all shapes anil colors. The
oils and varnishes are of thu bust grade ,
being put up by Mr. llospu himself for
the liner trade. Another attractive ) fea
ture of tlio display is thn Terrahno ,
vasmvaro , manufactured in Mr. IIo-.po'.s
establishment , of which thorn if a full
and elegant lino. There is also a beauti
ful display of moldings , ranging in price
from-1 ? ! down to four cents pur foot.
There are other features of the exhibit
which will pay those in attendance upon
the convention to note carefully. It
should bo borne in mind that Mr , Hospo
is the only dealer in this line of artists'
bimtU'ies west of Chicago.

the boilers ho examines. The ordinance
requires that owners of boilers shall noti
fy him of the fact of their rcadness to
have him conic and make examination.
But thus far thu owners have displayed a
tendency to pay no attention to thu law.
Instead of being notified hu is compelled
to run around and find them. This , however -
over , ho proposes to do if necessary , and
hereafter inspect on an average of about
twenty-live boilers per month.
