Christian Science and Its Fol

His Coarlctloas. "
Christian science, the modern re-
igious faith, has many adherents in
Rock Island, and also in Davenport.
in ibis city a class 01 23 has been
formed, which receives instruction
monthly from Mrs. Elizabeth Web
ster, of Chicago, who is a student of
Mrs. Eddy, the discoverer and found
er of the seel, and a graduate of the
Massachusetts Metaphysical college.
Those of the faith in Rock Island
have engaged a room in the new In.
dustrial building, where Mrs. Web.
ster gave her regular monthly course
of instruction Thursday evening of
mis week. Tbe class also meets in-
day evening of each week. Those of
the faith here and in Davenport join
n me service eacn Sunday morning
at K. P. hall, Davenport, where
about fifty from the two cities
attend. These exercises are con.
ducted by Mr. Owens, of Davenport,
ana Mrs. j. u. jobnston, 01 this city.
wno are tne readers. A gentleman
from this city who is an enthusiastic
convert to the new theory, said yes
terday in conversation on the sub
ject; "Christian science is growing
every day throughout the country.
11 is increasing in tne number wno
become convinced that it is the true
religion taught here as fast as those
who are disposed can give the sub.
ject proper thought. I need no bet
ter examples tban tbose wbo bave
been developed in my own family of
the merit of the theories of Mrs.
Eddy and her followers. My wife
had been an invalid for years; could
scarcely walk any great distance
without being fatigued and other
wise feeling the effects of exertion.
We had experimented with every
known means of medical treatment.
My wife turned to Christian science
and since she has taken its treat
ment is as well as she ever was. She
can walk for miles without the least
discomfort. In my own case, I was
never so well in my life as I have
been in the past live years. I ac
tually feel as young as I did 20 years
ago, and am now as active .in. any
undertaking that I enter as a man a
quarter of a century younger and
more so if he is afflicted with the
least physical ill."
What la the Belief ?
"One is not competent to describe
the teachings of Christian science
until be has made it a careful study,"
the speaker continued. Briefly,
bowever, it is the supremacy of mind
over everything. All is mind, and
mis being the case tbe ills of the
flesh are imaginary, with the mind
properly trained there can be no
sickness or disorder. Sickness,
which is the sin, can be removed
now by those who pnt their faith in
Christ, as when He was on earth.
In onr service we have no addresses
or sermons. We are not extempora
neous; we nave no theories, but con
victions. We have no oral prayer.
Our services consist of rcadiugs.
singing of hymns and silent prayer,
with reading from the scriptures "and
our interrelation of them.
'We now have 50 members in Rock
Island and Davenport and our classes
are growing steadily.'"
DESERTING THE WATER.
StaamboaUTaka to tha Harbors la Fear of
I ec soaking Weather.
The desolate appearance which
pervades the steamboat landings un
til old aol braces up and over
comes winters domineering and
again restores activity, and elicit
the smiles of the river man has com
menced forwarding its wtrning
threats. The steamboat owners
have responded to the hint and few
and far between are tbe crafts now
running between here and St. Paul.
All the rafters save the Kit Carson
have been steered into winter quar
ters, and the W. J. Young and V erne
Swain are the only packets running
hereabouts. The Young will con
tinue until the stream freezes and
the others will suspend shortly. Old
rivermen are 01 tne opinion mat the
river will not remain open after De
cember 1, dosing np earlier than
last year, when it was navigable un
til a "few days after Christmas. In
1881 it froze over Nov. 19, but that
was a singular case, not occurring
previously since 1863.
Comparatively Good Season.
As compared with 189 1 this season
has been very good. "Yes, there has
been a material increase in traffic
over last year," said Cipt. Lamont
today, "and rivermen generally are
well" satisfied. But as for Bock
Island, it's steamboat business
has not been what it should
have, and yet it has and
always does more than any point
between St. Louis and St. Paul. But
there is no reason why it should not
be increased three-fold if onr landing
waa so improved mat ireigbt could
be handled with the convenience of
other places. It's almost an impossi
bility to haul a wagon load of freight
up from the landing and for this rea
son onr shippers and buyers prefer
tne extra expense 01 baving It hauled
by the railroads. Why, people don't
realize the benefit the steamboat bus
iness is to Bock Island and how it
can be enhanced by a small outlay in
improvements, ana 111 tell von a
great mistake ia being made in not
giving u more attention.
Leas Than a Btlla a, aUnate Made by a
Bnrllagtoa Paieacer. I
The mile-a-minute clip was low
ered by a Burlington passenger train
the other day between Galesburg and
Mendota. Of it the Galesburg Reg
ister says: '
Passenger train No. 52 made
yesterday a fast rnn that is all tbe
talk among railroad men. The train
left here for Chicago an hour late.
The trip from here to Mendota. 80
miles, was made in 85 minutes. This
includes four stops and the slowin
up for the Bureau bridges. The
train thus went considerably faster
than a mile a minnte. The distance
from here to Galva. 22 miles, was '
made in 22 minutes. This is con
sidered the banner rnn. It is the
fastest time ever made on this line
of the Q. The engine seemed fairly
to eat the miles np. This demon,
strates another thing and that is the
cspacity of the Class H engine.
Many engineers have contended
right along that these engines were
clear np in the front rank and some
think that with a few changes they
would make the fastest engines in

Fuller is out for his health and he is

explaining how he happened aince
the last election to join the republi
can party. He has always taken a
great interest in corporations, the
stock which he acquired in the C,
M. & St. P. system being due to his
Keen observance, farsightedness and
frugality, and now that he has
taken "time to think, free from
the vexations and responsibili
ties of . active identification with
a corporation it is natural that
he should cast his lot with the
party which enjoys the confidence of
the corporations, even to tbe repu
diation of early teachings. .
