The Glue, Banjo And Mandolin Ulabi De- llRht Their Audience—Nearly Kvery Number Encored—Mandolin Clnb Especially Good—Social at the Clnb. College boys were in evidence in Sterling Tuesday night. The Glee, Banjo and Mandolin Clubs, of the entertainment was given at the Academy of Music, The boys came in on & special car from Mendota in the afternoon and were received by many of the old college boye In Sterling. A small audience greeted the students at the Academy. It is to be regretted that they did not meet with a larger reception, for they are all clever and their entertainment Was moat enjoyable. What the audience lacked in size, however, it made up in enthusiasm, for the applause was hearty and many numbers were vigorously encored The program opened with Sousa'a 'El Capltan" by the three clubs. It was excellently rendered and the musicians gained their audience from the very start. : The L, F. U, Medley was STOP FEEDING TRAMPS. , voices are all fine; they blend well together and the gentlemen sing with a vim that is very pleasing. This and every other number rendered by the club was encored, The best musical feature of the eve- .nlng was the work of the Mandolin Club. The members play splendidly together, and they render a grade of music better than that {which is ordinarily given by clubs of this kind. The hit of the evening was scored by Mr. O'Neill, the reader. He has pronounced ability— much greater than the ordinary-rand many see for him a brilliant future on .the stage. Mr. O'Neill is graceful in his every movement, hie facial expressions are .clever and entirely unconscious, and his voice is admirable. His. best selection was the story, as, told by a' "Dago," of how, _ father'^ favorite, cherry tree. Mr. O'Neill is, perhaps, the youngest member of the club. : The banjo club did good work; the Best of All is The Crescent, NEW BBAKD OF CIGARS T •' Maiiafacturfld by F. GQQHRAN, selection. 'Mr. Eastman, the tenor soloist, was fine. He sang "Mona," and In response to a vigorous encore, gave "The Gypsies." His vofce is smooth and well cultivated. ; The program closed with the song to Alma Mater, after which the Lake Forest yell was given with a will. At the close of "the concert the boys adjourned'to the rooms of the Sterling Club, where they were entertained for two hours with an informal "stag" BO- ciaK-Hefreehments were servedrclgars were .passed around and a pleasant time was enjoyed. The college boys sang a number of their excellent songs and the Sterling boys entertained with clever stories and music. The Clubs will appear atRushvllle this evening and it is to be hoped that they will be greeted with a large audience. ..:!•• ' '' ' \ OMAHA'S AIR SHIP IS SEEN AGAIN What the Reporter Baw Thrown Away by These people. The town hai been chuck full of tramps for the past two weeks. Upon the advice of many of the people of the town, the Marshal has been housing gangs of them each night in the lockup, from four, to a dozen, There are some who stay in the round house also. They appear to be a djflferent gang every night. About_ the .first thing they do when iey-Btrikrthe-town la to do it up for hand-outs. The good wives of our people do not wish to see a man go hungry and will give each caller something^ This is stored away in the capacious pockets of the tramp and he soon gets his pockets full, too. The tramps then congregate and put their provender together and select the choicest morsels from the batch and the rest is heaved away, to be devour- jeti by chickens or by dogs. The Marshal took the STANDARD man down to. the rear of the lock-up Tuesday afternoon and showed him what had been heaved pver the side fence in less than two days by men who had been in that structure..There was enough to fill several baskets. What had been thrown there before that time had been burled by tbe_Street " " was~Beeh on the ground laying to waste was much better than is found on the majority of tables in Rock Falls. The lot consisted of good bread, well buttered, buns, loaves of bread, pressed chicken, cakes, bologna, pork sausage, chipped beef and beef In the • chunk. Many people's mouths in this very town would water at the sight of that lay out. Then there were empty salmon cans and empty whisky bottles galore. Itisasbajne that such good victuals should go to waste when there are so many people, and worthy people, .too, here who would be thankful for such. " Let the people of Rock Falls shut down on giving these great big able bodied tramps victuals of any kind Tb« more they are fed the more they are.thereby_encouraged to keep at. it -As-long'as they can get the good thingt of the land without working for it like the rest of mankind, just that longwil they continue it. Look about you and youjff 111 see f amilies,who are-deservlgj "of help in .the way of victuals, whosi bread-winner has been unable to ge work for mauy months, and give them your things. Let a wagon be started and gather up once a week. The writ er will tell of some neiedy families tt bestow them on. . MR, GASTON ON CUBA. HE LECTURES TO A LARGE AUDIENCE AT Q. A. R. HALL. The Speaker Telia of the Flacky tittle Country and of the Fight the Insurgent* are Making for Their Liberty— Bltwlo by Mlci Richards and Mm, Peck. Edward Page Gaston,the well known speaker, lectured to a large crowd in the Grand Army Hall, under the auspices of the G, A,. B. Tuesday evening. The gentleman is a One talker and his effort was * very much enjoyed. The The entertainment was brightened by a solo, "Farewell Mother," by Miss Ella G. Richards, and a recitative song by Mrs. Arthur Peck. Both numbers were excellently rendered and were •well received. The lecturer started out with some statistics in regard to Cuba. The island is so fertile that instead of sustaining one and a half million of people, as at present, it can sustain fifteen millions. He praised Havana and gave a short -account of her historic worth. He contrasted the difference In railroading in Cuba and . here by saying that all-the switching of cars in Havana, -the center of trafllc, is done by : F 98TE8'_8. WEATH6R THE SOCIAL WAS ENJOYED. Time Many Citizens Look at the . Mysterious Visitor. The mysterious air ship was seen again Sunday.night by a number of Omaha people, It hove in eight about the time church services were over and in half an hour had disappeared. This time the "air ship" came into view in the southeastern portion of the horizon. It was in the shape of a big bright light, too big for a balloon, and glowed steadily. It Bailed over the city to the north West and there disappeared behind the booses and bluffs. It moved very slqwly and seemed ^Jt? be quite near the earth. Nothing bat the light was visible. A big crowd at Twenty- fourth andXake streets watched the trip of the visitor, .-••-.- ABOUT THE HOLT BROTHERS.

Fike.of Milledgeville, were here yesterday, says the Mt. Carroll Democrat. They were endeavoring to get the Holt brothers to plead guilty of grand larceny, and doubtless succeeded. In case they BO plead, Judge Shaw will call a special Grand Jury next Monday and the boys will us sentenced at once. If thta is not done, they will have to remain in jsl! until the June t^ro* g£ court.

TheEpworth League of the Firs Methodist church, under the direction of the Department of Mercy and Help gave a social in the interests of the Deaconess movement, .in the church .parlors Tuesday evening. A large crowd was in attendance and a jolly time was enjoyed. The features ot the evening w^re an address on the Dea coness movement, both of olden and modern times, by the Rev, Cass Davis, and a grand art exhibit. Mr. Davis address'was comprehensive .and well given and it was enjoyed by all who heard it. The art gallery was a "fake,' It caused a great deal of merriment; the scheme was a novelty, introduced in Sterling for the 0rst time. Among the notable '"pictures" were "Mustered In" and "Mustered Out," Many attended especially to see them. A "picture" representing the song, "Ever of Thee I'm Fondly Dreaming," was also very clever and created a great deal of laughter. :-••' Informal music waa rendered during the evening by. the members of the League and the affair proved a success throughout. The crowd- was }n its merriest mood and the many ¥unny things which were said and done will pot be forgotten for some time. * ''""."'" IN FREEPORT'S FAVOR. Judge Shrtw Decides the Water Work* Mutter 1« That City aiouilay. Judge Shaw rendered a decision In the water woike case Monday after-r noou at Freeport in favor of the city. The water company had a thirty years' contract to furnish water for the" city ,at a'certairi rate,. A year or so ago the City Council passed a new ordinance lowering the rdte and the water company fought it UQ the ground that the city could notj lower the rate during the life of the «outract. Shaw held that the dly had the right. - The was sr$ wtl beloie ghaw 41 Houses" are lighted by fireflies—their fireflies being about four times the size of ours. Belles wear fireflies in, their hair. Milkmen drive their cows to the houses, and then they contrive, .by a rubber sack and t,ube, to dilute their milk with water. He described an earthquake, and in his descriptions, he gave considerable Information In regard to the habits and customs of the Cubans. - . The weakest part of his address was whe-e the people. wanted it strong— the particulars of the insurrection in Cuba. • We know, as the speaker says, that the Cubans have good reasons to revolt against Spain. He touched on the cause of the present struggle; showing that two years ago Spain attempted to raise more revenue from Cuba. '... , : , _•.. Thei SpJtui4r4a.Blow havejiearlyjine^ fourth of a million soldierTln Cuba. The speaker thought that 25,000 old veterans from the United States would do more effective fighting than 250,000 j^anlBhJtrgpps. The Spanish 'troops havfTho heart in it; they are abused by their oflicers and not paid by the government, while Weyler gets 850,000 a year, besides stealing a vast amount, The government sends over ten millions of dollars every month; at least two millions of this is stolen; the governments expects it. The are cheerful and determined to win. Women of Cuba, the speaker said, were a great aid to the Insurgents, . <•• lie thinks Ills to the shame of the United States that the butchery is allowed to continue. The Cubans are worthy of human, if not of political, recognition. It is now possible to post a letter in Cuba with a Cuban stamp upon it and it Will come to the United States. The speaker believes that at the present the Cubans are not capable of self government, It takes time to teach any people to successfully govern themselves. Many Cubans desire annexation to the United States. He predicts that in the end the United States will form a protectorate over Cuba. After describing, first, some of the gambling propensities of the people, and .then a bull-fight, the speaker graphically depicted his ascent and descent of Popocatapetl in Mexico. Some of hia audience thought that very, few travellers ever used the sides of mountains as a toboggan elide, , J To thos.e who have not kept pace In the papers with the story of the war }n Cuba,~hU lecture was most interesting.
