"Onr Step-Hasband" Tonight—"Palmer Cox's Brownies" Thursday Might. "Our Step-Husband," to be presented at the opera house tonight, is one of the new successful comedy diamai of the year, and will be given by a company of unusual merit, headed by the well-known artists Messrs.

The death of Solomon Wise, of the firm of Wller & Wise, will not change the running .arrangements of the store, as his interests will be looked after by his eon, Carl Wise, who has developed into ft most capable young business man. It is understood that another son, Victor, will sell out his shoe business at Chicago and come here to assist in the store. With these energetic young men to assist, and Mr. Joseph Wller haying general supervision, tbe Bee Hive will easily retain the splendid success it has recorded for twenty years past. In fact the store is to be pushed farther to the front by its immediate enlargement. The building In the rear, which has been used for some years as a liquor establishment, is to be made about one-third larger and connected with the Bee Hive by proper openings and arches. Both the first and second floors are to be used, thus giving the main store more than double the floor room it now occupies. The Bee Hive will thus be provided with an entrance from Wall street, as well as from Broadway and Fourth. The firm is to be congratulated on Its faith in tbe future of Logansport, as shown by this movement to provide for a bigger business. AMUSEMENTS. D OLA1T8 OPEKA HOUSE. WM. DOLiN, MA»AQ«B.
