Rock Island High School Athletes
Cannot Get in Shape
By April 27.
MOLEfE- KSISTS OS EARLY DATE
Local Boys to Arrange for Meet
ing With Davenport at
It uow appears certain that the
spring field meet which has taken
place the past two years between the
Rock Island and Moline high schools
will not occur this season. The
reason assigned is that Moline has
insisted upon a date earlier than the
Rock Island boys felt they could get
in condition. The former have the
advantage of a gymnasium in which
they have been ' training for some
time, while the latter are forced to do
most of their work out of doors.
Davenport and Moline have arranged
for a meet April 27, and the former
will probably hold a track and field
meet with Rock Island about May 18.
The baseball team has arranged a
game with the Davenport high school
in that city at the new ball park next
Saturday and is devoting the after
noons of this week to hard practice.

NEW SCIENTIST EDIFICE
Chicago, April 10 The new edifice
erected for the Second Church of
Christ, Scientist, of Chicago, at the
corner of Wrightwood and Pine Grove
avenues and dedicated Easter Sunday,
is one of the most imposing of any
that has yet been consecrated to the
worship of this religious denomination
in this country. The ground, build
ing, organ and furnishings cost about
$120,000, and the entire amount nec
essary to pay for the building and the
one for the Third Church of Christ.
Scientist, on the west side a total of
about 1240.000 was quietly raised
during the past two years. The
money was contributed by over four
thousand persons. It is the custom
of Christian Scientists to dedicate
their churches free from debt, and
these buildings will be no exception to

VEGETATION LATE IN
STARTING THIS SEASON.
The weekly crop bulletin for Illi
nois says: ."Vegetation has been late
in starting this season throughout
the entire state, on account of the cold
weather which has prevailed during
the latter part of March and the early
part of April. The weather has also
been rainy, and the soil is too wet for
spring farming operations to be car
ried on advantageously, consequently
but little work has been accomplished.
A few correspondents state that while
the soil is too wet for plowing and
seeding, it is settling rapidly, and
gives promise of soon coming into
favorable condition. Some plowing
has been done on uplands and some
seeding of oats has been accomplished.
"Wheat is generally in fine condi
tion and promises a large 'crop where
not affected by the Hessian fly. - Re
ports of injury by freezing during the
winter come from very few corres
pondents, and the injury reported is
slight. The plant appears to be
starting a fine, healthy growth, and to
have become well rooted. Io parts of
a few counties, mainly in the western
half of the central district, the plant
has started an apparently vigorous
growth, but an examination discloses
the fact that the egg of the Hessian
fly was deposited in the growing plant
last fall to a great extent, and it is
feared great damage will result later.
Early sown wheat has been affected to
a much larger extent than late sown.
Some spring wheat has been sown in
the northern district.
Under the influence of the wet
weather grasses are starting nicely
and give excellent prospects for pas
ture and hay. In some localities the
growth is slow, but the plant is be
coming well rooted. Gardening and
potato planting have been delayed by
unfavorable weather. A little of this
work has. however, been accom
plished. The fruit prospects are re
ported to be excellent, the lateness of
the season being decidedly favorable.
Some early fruits are in bloom in the
southern part of the state."

Mr. Darby has spent much time In
the selection of the books and has ex
pended a comparatively small sum
for the more expensive books that can
be used by tbe pup Is at the public
library. The question of employing
a librarian was left with Mr. Darby
