Mrs. L. J. Vandiver, of Louisville,

represents an east era pu blishing house,
while brooding over domestic differ,
ences, Saturday evening attempted to
suicide by drinking a quantity of car
bolic acid in the presence of herhusband
and child and a number of guests in
the dining room of the Rock Island
house. She swallowed eight drams
af the acid and would have died from
the effects but for immediate medical
It was noticed by the guests that
Mr. and Mrs. Vandiver after entering
the dining room, about 7 o'clock, en
gaged in an animated conversation,
which they carried on in an under
tone, keeping those about them in
ignorance as to the subject of their
discussion, which resulted in Mrs. Van
diver suddenly rushing from the
room. Her mission, it afterward
transpired, was to procure the poison,
an ounce of which she purchased.
Mr. Vandiver and his son were still

LIMBACH STUDYING LAW
frUour Denim to Make New Start In
I Life When Released.
Julius Limbach. the wounded
burglar, whom Otlicer Billy Lee
brought to earth in Moline the morn
ing of last Labor Day, is a model
prisoner at the countv jail. He is
gentleman of refinement and educa
tion in all his conduct and he is ever
ready to lend a willing hnd when
caned on to work.
Limbach spends most of his time
poring over law books, with a view to
fatting himself to practice the pro
fession when he is released from con
iineiuent. Though he has never bee
regarded as a tough or desperate ma
since he fell into the hands of the lo
cal officers, but rather as a shrew
ana skillful criminal, be nas man
nested a uesire to make a new
start in life when he is re
leased during all the time he has
been confined in the county jail.
When the board of supervisors took
up the plan of having a workhouse
and providing work for the prisoners
on the street, the resolution that was
passed to this effect last spring was
especially designed to tit Lunbach
case. But the wounded burglar'
physical condition would not permit
such hard manual labor and the
wound in his face from which the bul
let was extracted a month ago cause
him much trouble with his eyesight
bo Limbach nas been left much
himself except when he has been
called on to assist the deputy sheriff
in odd jobs. When he has been al!
to use his eyes he has applied himself
to reading with a preference for law
'junks, and the sheriu s authorities
have supplied him from the library in
the cuurt house. He is following a
svsternatie course of reading and
though he is not saying much about
it. is striving to lit himself for a life
cf usefulness when be is released.

With McCormick Sem
inary. Rev. Ira W. Allen, Jr.. who has
been pastor of the Central Presbyter
ian church for the past live years, left
today for Chicago to take up his du

second verse of the first chapter of
peace from God, our

We miss a great many of the best
things that this life holds out to us
because of the formal manner in which
they are presented. But there is
nothing about the bible that is either
formal or useless. There is no waste
of words. And St. Paul, who uttered
the text, was too great a man ani too
serious to use words idly. When he
thus addressed the Ephesians he was
indirectly replying to the charge, that
he was not a true disciple because he
had never seen Christ and his words,
from the fact that they were spoken
only for the faithful, and contained an
insinuation against those who had not
professed Christianity. It was an in
sinuation similar to ihat which Christ
cast upon each of His disciples when
He told them that one of them was Lo
betray Him. It caused each to think
of himself and ask, 'Is it I. Lord?'
How much better it is to look to our
selves as the source of evil than to
search for that source among others.
St. Paul's words also implied a warn
ing for the future of the Ephesians.
They had been taught the doctrine
that man can save himself and wer

naLural means, such as fasting and
avoiding the contamination of matter
"The grace and peace which he held
out to the Kphesian9 involved two
separate ideas. Grace came from the
Greeks. It signified outward perfec
tion and came to be applied as an at
tribute of the Divine Being. Peace
involved the Hebrew idea. It origin
ally meant inward perfection and
came to be applied to those enjoying
the light of Christianity.

Kev. Allen concluded his sermon by
extending to his eonrregation the
grace and peace that St. Faul held out
to the Ephesians, and followed it with
a touching prayer asking for strength

At the Theatre.
Quo Vadis," the entire original
production, cast, scenery and all, will
e presented at Harper s theatre to
night. While it is described as a re-
lgious play, it is net one that ap'
peals alone to the believers in christi-
nity. A striking instance or this tact
occurred recently in a book store. A
lady who was purchasing Christmas
presents for her friends requested the
rk to select a nook lor a gentleman
who was a devqut Christian. The
clerk immediately handed her "Quo
Vadis." "Now," she continued, "I
want a book for a gentleman who is
not a Christian," and the clerk handed
her another volume of "Quo Vadis."
The same lights and shades of charac
ters and beliefs which formed the
foundation of the popularity of the
ovel have been preserved by the dra
matist iu his plav, and will cause his
work to be witnessed by thousands as
one of the grandest dramatic tri
umphs cf modern times
Harper's theatre was openei for the
season of 1900-1901 last night with
"A Hot Old Time," a farce'tbat was
brought into popular fivor by the

no.' I went home and brought him
