Kaumeier The Portrait Artist. 244 W. 3d St. My work is of the highest order. My prices always the lowest. A perfect likeness and satisfaction guaranteed. Call on the artist personally and see his specimens. Burlington Route. Two Shining Successes! Henry Irving, as an actor you see him this week. The Burlington Route, as a railroad. You take it every week in travelling safely, swiftly and luxuriously to Chicago, St. Louis or the World's Fair. In harmony with the high class of productions in which Mr. Irving appears, are presented a few quotations from celebrated poets, all applicable to the Burlington Route. To passé the worlds foure parts we deeme no more than ‘twere to goe to bedde. – E. Robinson. 1660. (The traveller passes over more than a fourth part of the world's circumference on the 7,000 miles of the "The Burlington" System.) He for the promised journey bids prepare the rapid car. – Pope. ("The Rapid car." – October 24, 1886, St. Paul to Chicago, 432 miles, in 11 hours and 10 minutes, fastest time on record). Each lamp that through the window gleams, reveals a scene of beauty. – Byron. [A prophetic vision of the appearance of the magnificent and luxurious Pullman Standard and Compartment sleepers on "The Burlington's" Vestibuled Train.]. But that broad causeway will direct your way, and you may reach the town ere noon of day. – Dryden. [A terse description of the smoothest track and lightest grade railroad in the Northwest, which places the traveller in "town" (Chicago) "ere noon" (9.00am). Use it as its merits and your comfort may equally determine – Shakespeare. [If there is any road in the United States or elsewhere which has more luxurious or more comfortable sleepers, more beautiful, well-appointed dining cars, more appetizing, satisfying meals, or better attendance in all its departments, than this road. I have never seen it, and I do not believe it exists." A distinguished Minnesota Lady. "Fate cannot harm me; I have dined to-day." – Sydney Smith. Resolved by sterling worth to gain respect – Brydges. [The carefulness with which "The Burlington" was built; the elegance and solidity of its equipment, and the attention to every detail, have secured by merit the favour of the travelling public.] Let envy howl at honors worthily conferred; truth guards her favourite – Pope. ["The Burlington" has moved serenely on, conscious that all its promise to the people have been faithfully performed. I have roved from wild America to spicy Ind. – Willis. [The extent of country covered by the lines of "The Burlington" System surprises those who have not travelled over it. More than one-quarter of our sixty million people live in the states reached by this railroad. Chicago. St Louis, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Omaha, St Joseph, Kansas City, Cheyenne, Denver – these form the splendid galaxy of cities which are terminal points of "The Burlington."] Never halting time by the forelock take; miss not the occasion – Wordsworth. [The poet urges the vital importance of seizing an opportunity. "Miss not the occasion." But since you can reach the World's Fair via "The Burlington," take no other line.] Golden opinions has it won from all sorts of people – Shakespeare. [These are the "sorts of people:" Northwestern Delegation to National Democratic Convention at St. Louise, June 1888; Delegates and Visitors to National Republican Convention at Chicago, June 1888, 4,000 people; Minnesota Knights of Pythias to Supreme Lodge at Cincinnati, June 1888; Minnesota Teachers to National Education Association at Nasvhille Tenn., July, 1889; Minnesota Editorial Association, Excursion to Chicago, August 1889; Damascus Commandery. K. T., of St. Paul, and Zion and Darius Commanderies, K. T., of Minneapolis, to Triennial Conclave at Washington, October, 1889.] Time speeds his journey like a restless stream – Cowper. [It is a very restless stream that can speed like "The Burlington." On the morning following the presidential election of 1888, one of the Northwestern newspapers sent out over the railroads of the Northwest several special trains bearing the latest news. In it special edition it said: "Over the Chicago, Burlington & Northern the train was a flyer. It left Minneapolis at 4.10 and arrived at La Crosse at 7 o'clock. It stopped at St. Pail 25 minutes to exchange papers to another railroad and get a clear track. Then it left Dayton's Bluff at 4.40, made 12 stops, and arrived at La Crosse at the hour named, 131 miles from St. Paul, in 125 minutes. What's the matter with The Burlington?"] One day, I think, in Paradise he lived. – Prior. [The poet has in mind the day the traveller journeyed on "The Burlington" Vestibuled from the Twin Cities to Chigaco.] Now does he win the hearts of all that he does angle for. – Shakespeare. [Myriad-minded Shakespeare's words exactly describe the shining success of "The Burlington" in gaining the affections of the Northwestern Public.] "Sometimes we see a pendant rock, a forked mountain, or blue promontory, with trees upon it" – Antony and Cleopatra – Act IV. John R. Hastings, Gen'l Superintendent. St Paul, Minn. W. J. G. Kenyon, Gen'l Passenger Agent. Large and fine selected stock of watches, diamonds, jewelry and solid silverware at lowest prices Henry Bockstruck. 117E.th St., 2 doors below Wabasha. The Boston St. Paul. Our K.

This firm is noted throughout the United States for the liberal odds they offer, and all lovers of good horse racing secure a good run for their money when they do business with Ullmann & Co. This pool room has jumped into popular favour with the public and is crowded all the time. They male a book for all the popular race tracks including Saratoga races which begin daily at 10.30 a.m. Thomas Q. Seabrooke, with his Comic Opera Company and Ballet, will present that compound of mirth and melody, "The Isle of Champagne" by Chas. A. Byrne and Louis Harrison, at the Metropolitan, Monday, October 2d, for the week and Saturday matinee. "The Isle of Champagne" is a comic opera of the modern school; its aim is to amuse, and it accomplishes its mission. The theme on which it is based is a highly original one, and furnishes a rich field for humorous complication. King Pommery Sec'nd is monarch of an island in the Pacific, where water is unknown, but champagne is so abundant that it furnishes only the beverage of inhabitants. The wreck of New Bedford bark on the shores conveys the first knowledge to the inhabitants of the existence of other lands and strange people. But what is of more importance to the subjects of King Pommery is the discovery of a fluid far more desirable to them than any which they had previously known. This fluid is the water with which the shipwrecked vessel is supplied. The king recognizes in the beverage a source of wealth, and in order to acquire it he proposes marriage to Abigail Peck, an elderly spinster of New Bedford Mass., who is owner of the vessel. Miss Peck accepts the offer and the impecunious finds himself at once raised to affluence. But the bibulous monarch continues to absorb an unlimited number of "cold bottle" and develops a tyrannical spirit which leads to family jars. This unpleasant state of affairs if intensified by the wiles of the prime minister, Apolinaris Frappe, who has designs on the throne. The king is rapidly drinking himself to death and is prudent spouse has a weather eye on the throne, where she hopes to reign undisputed, but her designs are about to be thwarted by an unexpected complication. Prince Kissengen, son of the king, becomes enamored of Priscilla, the pretty niece of the newly made queen; the latter is tempted by Apollinaris to conspire against the King and sieze the throne. The attempt to carry out this design leads to a number of highly amusing situations, in which Seabrooke is given ample opportunity for the exercise of his ability as a comedian. The location and theme of the plot of "The Isle of Champagne" give full scope for a wealth of picturesque and novel effects on the mounting of the opera.

Robert Mantell's new and successful drama, The Face in the Moonlight, presents that popular young actor in a line of business which it is said will surprise his admirers, who have heretofore seen him in serious roles exclusively. In Victoire Ambroise and Jacques Ferrand, alias Rabat, Mr. Mantell has a dual role, one character being a handsome officer in Napoleon's army, and the double being a reckless, boisterous brigand with a spice of comedy in his deviltry. Startling and almost instantaneous changes of costume and make-up are strong features of the action of the play, one of which is an absolute change in what seems but a second, from the full uniform of the French officer to the picturesque costume of the bandit. The story is a powerful and interesting one and has been highly praised by the Eastern dramatic critics. Northwestern Fuel Co. Coal, Wood. 154 East Third Street. Telephone Call 375-2. S. W.

Full telegraphic description given on all events. Evans & Hoey's New Budget. In announcing the 10th and last session of the wonderfully successful comedy, "A Parlor Match," Messrs. Evans, Hoey & Mann point with pride to the fact that their piece has been performed continuously by the originators more times by far than any other play ever written. During its run of over nine years Mr. Evans has only missed one performance and Mr. Hoey has been delinquent at only five or six, on account of illness. It will not take any one familiar with the theatrical business long to see that this is a wonderful record, and no doubt has much to do with the great prosperity of the property – contrary to the general rules. "A Parlor Match" has been much improved each season, and additional money spent in the effort to make it brighter and better than before. It began its career with only eleven people in the company, including manager and agent, while today it begins its 10th year with twenty-five people and a carload of scenery, properties, etc. Manager Mann says that the company this season is composed of nearly all new members, among the number being the three English sisters, Merrilees, whom they engaged while in Europe this summer. They are described as being pretty girls, who dance cleverly, sing in four or five different languages, and play various musical instruments with much ability. Another new engagement this season is that of the De Forests, who, it is said, do the most startling and difficult things in the way of dancing. Mr. Hoey has two new songs. One "Monte Carlo Boys" which is a continuation of his great success of last season, "The Man who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo," and "They All Take After Me," in place of his song of last year, "Not the Only One," Mr. Evans also has a surprise or two up his sleeve for his many admirers, and with the support of a competent company, these gentlemen have every reason to expect that their last season with "A Parlor Match" will be the best of all.
