His stay though short wan a lucrative one (or he left at least one vlollm and perhaps more to mourn his visit. He had a new game and strange to say he found aome one npon whom to work It. Hla gsine was to offer to his victim a prom • lae of securing a valuable prize If the victim would first place a «10 bill In a paper envelope. The envelope con talnlng the ilO he aaid he would place inside of a larger one and these two be waa to leave with the victim until 4 o'alook In the afternoon. Then a second "agent" was to come around to open the envelope and the 110 bill was to be restored to the owner and a valuable prize with It. The victim was anre to get her ten dollars back and was more than liable to get a valuable prize, possibly another 910. But the fakir was not In the business for his health, ao Instead of placing the 910 In the envelope he cleverly stuck It In his pocket and left. He went to a house at North and Pearl streets where a family named Overboil lives. He explained bis plan to enrich a young lady of the family, and persuaded her to invest 910 in the scheme. The young lady was finally persuaded to do so and the usual sequel waa the result. She disobeyed hla instructions not to open the] envelope until 4 p. m. by opening as soon as the fakir waa gone. Then to her grief she found the envelope empty and the fakir gone with her money. The po ><KK><HX>O<)-O^KH)-(X>-O<)~O<XHK>^<^O 25 JACKETS Less than Cost of Cloth.

Brueggeman Tailoring Co. 221 Plaaa at. The lecture of William Armatrong, the famous musical critic of tbe Chicago TYtfntJM!, at Spaidlng Auditorium last evening, was a musical treat. The audience was an Intellectual, discriminative one that recognized full well t he true worth of the words ot the eminent critic. His lecture was an important one of the mnalcal events of the season and the audience should have been larger. Miss Bessie O'Brien, a talented young mezzo- soprano of Springfield, assisted Mr. Armstrong in his lecture by singing a number ot selections illustrating the style of the composers spoken of In the lecture. The lecture waa on the subject "0npnbllahed Interviews with Great Musicians." Mr. Armstrong said tbat his personal Interviews with these great musicians had enabled him to make a truer conception ot their work and to understand them more perfectly. He lapoke of the charao- terlatios ot the truly great artists, among which la modesty, « virtue which is very seldom met with among tbe higher classes. Mr, Armatrong tritely remarked all truly great artists are modest, but the truly great are extremely rare. He told of interesting interviews had by himself with PattI, Nordica, Calve, the De Reszkes and all other really prominent artists of the day. Of Nordioa and Patti he speaks ir> tbe highest terms of praise, bnt his opinion of Calve was not so complimentary. He told how Nordl- ca'a endeavor baa always been to improve; that ahe never is satisfied with herself but always trying to do better. "Self-satisfaction retires more prlists than age." In closing he spoke of tbe sympathy with tbe composer and the art that is necessary to a great artist. "It is sympathy, sympathy, sympathy, that makes tbe artist truly great. The singer or composer whose heart grows in instead of ont, can never reach tbe people and excite In^them a feeling that ia genuine." The Value of $23 In a Musical Education.

The old Spread Eagle baa made her last trip between Alton and St. Louis. She made her farewell trip Wednesday, when abe left Alton for St. Louie on her way to Paducab. The Eagle Packet Oo. baa closed the contract for a fine new side wheel steamer to take her place in the local trade next spring. The new Spread Eagle will be a finer boat than the old one and la expected to be taster. Part of the machinery of the Spread Eagls will be transferred to the new boat, which will be ready for business sometime in June. The Idlewlld will probably be placed in the trade when navlga tlon opens, to ran until the new boa Is ready. . The Spread Eagle is one of the best known boats on the upper river. For almost flfteen_^eaTJLghe has piled between Alton and St. Louis In the day time, going to .Grafton at night, aiid baa the reputation of being a moneymaker. She waa always popular as an excursion boat because of her speed. In her youthful days she had the record of being the fastest boat on the upper Mississippi, but of late years her timbers have been so racked by sand-bar running and constant wear that she has deteriorated sadly. Her successor in the list of Spread Eagles will be designed especially for excursion business and her ownera expect her to be a money-maker too. The new boat will be the third bearing the name Spread Eagle. Hard Spring Wheat "Oream of the Earth," 94,00. ALTOM BOU^B MILLING Go. Dr.A.W.Kue. JUenusc, Hpaldlug bid.
