tist' association is taken from the
Those who have attended the ses
sions of the Hock Island Uaptist as
sociation, no matter whether they
belong: to the Daptist denomination
or some other, liave certainly been
rewarded for their time and trouble.
The sony service led by Kev.' W. II.
Dickman. Cambridge, . opened the
evening- session Wednesday. The ad
dress of .1ml son 15. Thomas, IJ. 1 ., f
Chicago, upon the subject. "The Call
of Cod to the Iiuptists to America."
was a powerful presentation of the
vast opportunities here in America
for the establishment of Christ's king
dom and an earnest plea to Chris
tian hearts everywhere to take ad
vantage of these "golden oportnni
ties" and become valiant soldiers of
the Lord desus.
The second address of the evening
was by Kev.j (). L. Svvanson, upon the
subject of "Foreign Missions." Mr.
Swanson has had six years exper
ience in' the foreign province of As

dress dealt mainly with a description
of -the people of 'Assam, their man
ners and customs.
Uev. Swanson and wife expect to
leave in the near future to again
take up missionary work in Assam.
It will mean' a greater sacrifice than
ever this time, as they are obliged to
leave the ir two children, aged four
and nine years, in tliis country.

TALES OF THE AIRE
The play of "Held by the Knemy'
brought William (iillette into promi
nence at a single bound. It made his
name a power in theatricals, and the
Frohmans were quick in binding him
in a contract for years. While Sher
lock Holmes and Secret Service are
from his pen, "Held by the Knemy"
is considered his masterpiece. The
public 'lemaiid the play. Its thrills,
its comedy and pathos reaches every
heart and Ihis etfort at dramatic art
will ever stand as a true American
play. Its great power to attract is
still evident, and the constant demand
for its production - led to its being
booked as among the lirst of attrac
tions. It. is to be at the llinois thea
tre tomorow evening.
Manager Cox, of the Illinois thea
tre, last evening gave the daily paper
carriers of the city a treat and a
large delegation of them responded
to his invitation to occupy two rows
in the balcony reserved for them at
"Hip Van Winkle." given by the Van
Dyke & Katon company.
Speaking of the society comedy
darma "For Home and Honor, which
plays the Illinois theatre next Mon
day evening.the Philadelphia F.nquirer
""For Home and Honor," a drama
in four acts, by Lcm. 15. Parker, was
produced at the Standard ' theatre
last night for the first time " here.
Original in theme and cleverly con
structed is Lem. Parker's melodrama.
The story of the play concerns the
experiences of Margaret Mordaunt.
who has been betrayed by a man she
thought her husband. When she
learns the truth the heart broken
girl leaves the man anil begins life
anew. Subsequently she marries a
lieutenant in the Tnitcd States navy.
She is in the midst of her happiness
when she is confronted by the man
who has caused her so much misery.
There is further trouble for the much
harassed heroine, of course, but the
curtain finally falls in her complete
triumph and the utter rout of those
who wished her harm. The char
acter of Margaret Mordaunt received
careful .and conscientious treatment
at the hands of Minnie Dixon-Parker,
the capable leading woman. Miss
Dixon's portrayal was consistent
throughout. Perhaps the greatest
compliment that can be paid Lem. I!.
Parker is to record the fact that the
gallery took so kindly to villiany as
to hiss strenuously.
A Snre Car for Diarrhoea.
Coming as it does, in the busiest
season, when a man can least afford
to lose time, a sure and quick cure
for diarrhoea is very desirable. Any
one who has given it a. trial will tell
you that : the quickest, surest and
most pleasant remedy in use for this
disease is Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy. There is
no loss of time when it is used,' as
one or two doses of it will cure any
ordinary attack. It never fails, not
even In the most severe and danger
ous cases. For sale by all druggists.

AT COLLEGE GYMNASIUM
The executive committee of the
board of directors of Augustana col
lege met Thursday evening at the
president's room, all members of the
committee being present with the
exception of Uev. Da hi berg, of Hock
Island; Dr. Ludwig linlmes, of lturl
ington, Iowa; Dr. Drodine, of Orion.
Considerable business of import
ance, to the students was transacted
at the meeting. Among other things
the committee approved the plans for
a Complete bathing apparatus and
dressing rooms' to lie provided for
the students. The bath and dressing
rooms will be locatetl in the gymna
sium. Another improvement which
will be appreciated by those who at
tend the" college is the item of lock
ers for the use of those who do not
live near the college building. They
will be located in the halls or what
ever place is convenient.
Manager .Jesierson reported that
up to the present time there had
been a greater demand for rooms
than ever before in the historj- of the
