Mr. and Mrs. George B-engler have been called upon to pass through one of the saddest events that comes to people in this life. Yesterday momat half-past 2 o'clock their üttle four year old daughter Lolo Etta, but who was famiiarly called "Loetta," died of braiu fever. Slie was a bright, beautiful little beam of sunshine, given to them to make a port'on of their ILves ■extremely happy, and then to pass on before them to prepare their fentrance to that land where parting is "unknown. Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, fro;m the reside-nce, No. 33 S. Fairst st. Tliere were two thiiigs that had a tendeaicy to make the Hallo ween of 1894 a quiet one. One was the good sense and dignity of a large majority of the student community, whose influence over those who may have been inclined fco be a little ■vikl was such as to keep them within bounds.' Another was the alert manner in which Mayor Darling and our efficiënt chiei of pólice, Mr. Banfóield, handled the boys of the city who are quite often on misdliief bent on that night. All of our citizens agree that iit was the most quiet and ordeily Halloween that Ann Arbor has seen for many a year. Marshal Bauileld has been dolng some ef jolent work of late in the way of drdvlng women of ill ifepiute out of t,!ic city. Every year euch vromen come to Ann Arbor and try to establdsili themselves here but fail oï (li poirposé.

Mis. JuMa Maria Richards TJrewer, who dsit-ed the home of Chas. Dwyer come mantlis ago, and who had a number of fniends in tJiis city, died on itht' lOth of October, at her home In Grinnell, Iowa. Her husband was at one time a consul to Greece, but later a member of the faculty of Iowa College. He was a brother of Judge Brewer, of the. U. S. Suipreme court. Her unele, James Richards, was one of the föve students oí Willia-ms College, in whose pravers originated the first foreign missionary work of our American churches. Shc and her husband, in 1865, 'iigaged in missionary work among the freedmen in North Carolina, at a timo when such work meant great trial and danger, and continuéd thei-eên for twelve years. The death of Mrs. Brewer will be keenly feit in missionary circles. She leaves four daughters and two sons. The season oí the year is at hand when the regular fall rounds of the beggar brigade commemce, and our people should be careful to whom they give. That they should give is beyond a questian ; but to wliom ío gavie is a matter oí doubt. It is true that lie who giives indiscriininately galves unwiselj', and does more iiarm than good. One should always look ihito the matter, and see if the appücant is worthy. To supply trampa and professional beggars is to encourage vice ajid crime, but to refuse a worthy person in need is a sin. The power of discriminating between the two ie often difficult, and yet thère is a certain marnier about the "profesh" that most always giivies them away. Sol Smith Russell was overwhelmed wiith a magnificent and enthusiastic audience at the grand opera house, last evenimg. He pleased his audience and iiis audience pleased him. He was called out before the curtalns and compelled to malee a speech. It was a good speech, btcause it was just what the audience expected and wanted to hear. Every member of the compa,ny was good and everytliing said was of the emotional order, eiither sad or fumiy. Of course Sol was t;he hero. He foiled the heavy villain of Peaceful Valley, tlvrew hóm over the mountain, and marrflied the prettiest glrl in the play- whk-h was of course perfectly propr - on the etage. SoJ's powers are not faling yet. His entertaining aHUties are as great as they were thèrty years or move ago, when he electrified audieaieea in Hangsterfer's Hall as a member of the Peak Family Swiss Bell Eingers. He is not quite as young a.nd giddy as then, not quite as active in limb or quick in facial expression, but more mature, and gives his audience a sort of sédate fun, that is quite as effective and acceptable. The announcement that Mr. AVLlinm Jlorris will be the star at the grand opera house on next Thursday eveaxing, Nor. 8tli, will 110 doubt be receii-ed with a great itegree of p'easure by the numerous cítentele of this hbuse, who will have the opportunity of seeing him in that powerful play, "The Lost Paradise," under the direction of Mr. Gustave Frohman. When the Frohman Stock Company was plaj-iug +o dclighted audiences everywhere in such favorite plays as "The G4rl I Left Behind Me," and ".Men mul Woinen." 110 member reciivvú so much admira t ion as Mr. Mon-is, and he speedily became so strong a favorite that the menüon of his nanii! in connection with i play was suffieient to attract splendid audiences, fi-om whom he was alwaye the recipiënt of the loudest app-lause.
