ICE IN THE RIVER STOPS
LAST RAFT OF THE SEASON
The steamer Kit Carson, which un
dertook last week to bring down a
raft for the Muscatine saw mill, met
with trouble in Lake Pepin. The lake
was reached when the weather was
the coldest and there was such a
quantity of ice moving that Ihe ea
tain saw it would be impossible to
handle a raft. Accordingly he made
for La Crosse and went into winter
quarters in Hlack river. The trip, if
it had been accomplished, would have
been a record breaker in rafting his
tory. There has been a great deal of ice
floating in the river past this city
during the last few days. It was not
cold enough at this point to form
much ice, but nortli of here the river
came near closing in places.

ing at the People's Union Mission in
Davenport when he feared that he
whs about, to become hypnotized.

him escape from the spell being ex
erted over him. she -states that the
woman in the case was not a member

appear that she would use such meth

CIGARET IS THEME
Union Service at First Methodist
Church Largely At
tended. AN ADDRESS BY MISS GASTON
Arousing Sentiment in Support of
The auditorium of the First Meth
odist church was filled last evening at
the union service held under the auspices-
of the Woman's Christian Tem
perance union in the interest of the
Anti-Cigaret league, whose superin
tendent. Miss Lucy Page Gaston, was
in attendance to deliver an address
in the progress of the war that she
has been waging the past several
The congregations uniting were
those of the Broadway, Central and
United Presbyterians, First Method
ist and First Baptist churches. Mrs.
J. W. Stewart, president of the Kock
Island branch of the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance union, made an in
troductory talk stating the purpose
of the meeting, and Hew II. P. Wil
liams, pastor of the church, present
ed Miss Gaston.
Miss Gaston spoke for half an hour
on the evils of the cigaret, particu
larly among the youth of the nation,
and cited a number of instances
where insanity and death, had been
produced by excessive indulgence in
the paper-covered article. Her pur
pose is to so arouse sentiment against
the cigaret as to bring about enact
ment of legislation by the general as
sembly to prohibit its sale in Illinois.
Such a bill has been before the legis
lature at several sessions, but the to
bacco interests have thus far been able
to marshal sutticient influence to pre
vent its adoption. Miss Gaston stat
ed she was not discouraged, however,
and hoped within a short time to ac
complish her mission. She is making
a direct appeal to the voter to see to
it that the man he supports for the
legislature will lend his aid to the
anti-cigaret measure in the event of
his election. The bill on each presen
tation has been more favorably re
ceived than in the preceding instance,
and Miss Gaston is confident that
eventually it will meet with adoption.
Others who spoke at the meeting,
were Professor Thompson, president!
of the Geneseo Colletriate institute; i !
IT. 15. llaydeti. superintendent of the
Kock Island schools; Kev. D. L. Me
