a decided advancement in the art of
record making. They have a full,

SWEDE A PATRIOT
His Part in Development -of
Adopted County Shown by
Dr. Custav Andreen.
AN ADDRESS AT ST. - LOUIS
At Ceremonies at Breaking of Ground
fur World's Fair Swedish
Dr. Gustav Andreen, president of
Augustana college, was one of the
speakers at the ceremonies marking
the breaking of ground for the Swed
ish pavilion at the world's fair today.
His subject was "Yhat Have the
Swedes Done in the Territory Com
prising the Louisiana Purchase?"
The advent of the Swede in Ameri
ca, the growth of his number, and
the important part he has played in
the development of his chosen land
were pointed out. Continuing, he
"Hut the Swedish-American brought
not on I j- brawn and material wealth
to this territory; the very nature ajf
his fatherland and the education he
received there had made him a man
of ideals filled with strong religious
sentiment. J n the early settlements
the men would gather before they had
their own rude homes finished to build
a large.r blockhouse or even sodhoiise
than the rest; this they called church,
and here they assembled to worship
God after the manner of their fore
fathers. From these small beginnings
there has grown up a great organiz
ed religious work. Out of their early
poverty these pioneers have built 700
to 800 churches, many of them cathedral-like
in their proportions, where
the story of the cross is proclaimed
on prairie and in city. As part of this
great work there have arisen schools,
orphan homes, hospitals, deaconess'
homes, all in all being valued at more
than $3,000,000. A strong missionary
spirit is continually manifesting
itself. The Swede brought with him
from the north no better contribution
to his adoptive land than this strong.
deep, quiet, blessed devoutness of
I, aw Abiding andYrfyal.
"As citizens, these, settlers have
proved to be law-abiding and loyal.
They wore early called upon to show
their love for this country. 'When
the first pioneers began to arrive, the
lowering clouds foreboded a deadly
conflict between the north and the
south. At the first bugle call of war.
thousands and again thousands of
Swedish-Americans sprung to the
front as volunteers, ready to lay down
their lives for the cause in which their
heart believed. On every battlefield
their bones li bleaching, in number
less homes the sail news of war
brought anguish and tears to loving
hearts, lt-was with a baptism of
blood then that they became good
Americans, the country they had
fought and been willing to die for.
they had also learned rightly to live
for. During all these years the set
tlers from the north have taken the
keenest interest in public affairs. We
find their representatives today, not
inly on the farms and in the counting-houses,
but also in all depart
ments of city and county government.
in the halls of the legislature, at con
gress, and in important positions ev
erywhere, all this foreboding the day
when a man descended from the
north will by right of ability and in
tegrity be chosen to fill the supreme
office of trust in this country. And
that man will no doubt come from
the old Louisiana territory.
Amrfo Choeeu Bride.
"This feeling does not exclude, but
enhances and clarifies, the love of the
land f the forefathers. To use' a fig
lire 'pronounced, by Dr. Enander at
the dedication of the Swedish pavil
ion in Philadelphia at the World's ex
position in 1870: 'America is our chos
en bride, to whom we vield the most
ardent love of our hetlrts; Europe,
and for us Sweden, is our mother.
whom we revere and honor. And ev
cry American, especially he who has
a drop of northern blood in his veins
rejoices today that the flag, blue and
gold, which has been carried to vic
tory on many a battlefield, will wave
to the wind among tne nanners at
this rendezvous of the nations of the
world. Hehold. there the star and
stripes are Intertwined with the gold
en cross and blue background of the
banner of Sweden. May the two na

forts for the advancement of human
PORJSE ON RAILROADS
E. C. Winters-, of Jiock Falls, has
been allowed patent on a recent in
vent Ion Unit bids fair to become a
thing of general use by railroads, and
n source of income to the inventor,
It is a Fpike-lock for railroads; which
will reinforce the spikes and hold
them firmly in contact with the rails
and prevent accidents by keeping the
rails from spreading. They will also
save the railroads much expense by
keeping the spikes from coming loose
and working tip out of the ties. This
has been one of the chief difficulties
inthe railroad work of the country
from the time when the first rails
were laid. The passing heavy trains
gradually work the spikes loose and
the section men have to go over the
traeks often to keep them down.
There have been inventions along
this line, but they are all complicated
unices and not simple enough to war
rant the railroads in putting them
into general use. One of the chief ad
vantages of Mr. Winter's invention is
the fact that it can be stamped from
a single piece cf sheet metaf and re
quires no auxiliary means to hold it
in place. It is a small arch embrac
ing the head of the spike, having two
small wings or plates extending un
der the rail on top of the tie. From
the top of the arch a clinch plate ex
tends . downward to engage the tie
and hold the lock in place, keeping
the plates from slipping from beneath
the rail. It can be readily removed
for the replacing of ties or rails and
can bo used over again, making it
economical, safe, cheap and almost
a necessity for the up-to-date rail

Notes From Nearby.
A new and novel method of suicide
and one that ought to recommend
itself to those who wish to go the
route by easy stages was tried at
Kewanee Sunday night. Ihougnit
failed, the fact ought not discourage
others from trying it. James' D. Ans
bro is the genius who invented the
method. He was languishing in the
police station at the time and evident
lv came to the conclusion that sui
cide would be an easy way to get out
of paying a fine for drunkenness.
Castiug about for something with
which to accomplish the desired end
he found a corkscrew in his pocket.
He promptly drew it and bcgaiHvist-
ing it into his neck, near the jugular
vein. In its gyrations it missed the
mark, and James still lives.
David Howard, who is nearly 63
years of age, aud who has lived at
Maquon the greater part of his life,
was found dead at his home yester
day. The supposition is that he com
mitted suicide by poisoning.
Fritz Trapp, aged 30. a' farmer of
Tazewell county,' was frozen to death
early yesterday morning. He was in
Peoria Sunday, leaving for home at
midnight intoxicated, and fell from
his wagon, his team going home.
Mrs. David Plapp, i f Malta, III., was
found dead yesterday morning from
exposure. At '. o'clock her husband
missed her. and. following her tracks
in the snow, found her in a' snowdrift.
Whether she left her bed in her sleep
or was temporarily, deranged is not
known. She was the daughter of Rev.
Switzer. of the German church, and
was the mother, cf 16 children. 13 of
whom are living.
The Fulton county narrow gauge
sustained a severe loss by fire yester
day morning, when the engine house
at Havana and one of the largest en
gines on the road were consumed
The burning of the engine will crip
ple the road quite badly.
R. W . Sweeney, of Galesburg. a
prominent member of the Knights of
Pythias and a member of College City
lodge in that city, has received the
appointment as general organizer of
the endowment rank of the order, to
succeed the late Abe Pollock, whose
death occurred several months ago
Mr. Sweeney will have as his territory
all of the state of Illinois except Cook
AN APPEAL FOR MONEY
The state prohibition committee
is in need of money according to a
letter sent out by State Chairman Wil
liams. He says the ciynmittce is in
iebt $2,300 with-wtcs -falling riue-ffor
which lie is personally responsible
and he cordially asks contributions
of $5 from each precinct in the state
immediately. Local prohibitionist
have received official letters of the de
licit anil the urgency for funds. A
copy of the letter follows:
Chicago. Nov. 17, 1003.
Dear Chairman: You are the of
ficial representative of your precinct
of our state and county organization
and as such we place before you a
matter of much importance.
Your state committee made a he
roic effort last winter to pot the New
York Voice into thousands of homes
for this year. Our people rallied no
bly and the paper is now going into
nearly 20,000 Illinois homes every
week. We cannot measure the good
this is tloiiig in education, agitation
stimulation and conversion. This ex
pense was covered in part by pledges
many i f which remain unpaid, but
are good. We have $2,400 due now
and unpaid on our pledges. This con
dition has somewhat embarrassed our
work and made the burden quite
heavy for me. 1 have a note for $300
at the bank due Dec. 1, which must be
paid on that date. It wis given ir
part payment of this most worthy ex
penditure. I am personally responsi
ble but must raise that amount from
the field within two weeks. We have
the pledges you see to cover it but
payments are slow and receipts small
in comparison with our needs.
I now appeal to your loyalty and
devotion to our blessed cause and
ask you to raise in your town or pre
cinct the small sum cf $5 and for
ward to headqviarters by Nov 28. With
faith in God ask each friend for 50
cents or $1 towards this literature
fund. Many of those papers are sent
to missionary territory covering near
ly every county where the party was
weak and lifeless. I must depend upon
you at this critical time and ask you
for immediate cooperation in this
special call. Don't neglect it. Don't
put off action, but try at once to raise
what you can and send by Nov. 28 to
our office at above address. Let me
assure you that it will be received
with gratitude, and I am sure you will
have Grid's blessing in this noble mis
sion. Very hopefully.
