The 35th annual meeting of the
Rock River Association of Congrega
tional churches, which opened here
yesterdav. came to a close today. The
final session this morning brought out
addresses by Prof. Gerard T. Smith,
of Moline, on "Ideals in Education;'
by Rev. D. M. Rrown, on "Christianity
and Modern Thought;" a symposium
on "Interdenominational Fellowship;"
Rev. M. V. Crumhaker. of the Moline
First Methodist church, speaking on
"The Spirit." and Rev. W. C. Spencer,
of Moline's First Raptist church, on
"Cooperation. The closing address
was on "The Need of the Hour." by
Rev. C. II. Moore. D. D.. of Davenport.
The principal event of last evening's
session was an address by President
Dan H. Rradley, of Iowa college. Mr.
Rradley is one of the most gifted ora
tors of the church.
The committees for the state con
vention of the Daughters of the Amer
ican Revolution, which is to be held
in Moline June "I and :i. have been ap
pointed and all arrangements have
been perfected. The convention opens
at 10 o'clock Thursday morning, and
will close at noon the following day.
A luncheon will be served at the First
Congregational church Thursday
noon, and a reception at Overlook in
the evening of the same day. A drive
through the island for the visiting
delegates will be a feature.
Henry Johnson, of California, is in
the city looking for his brother, Wil
liam Johnson, whom he has not seen
for more than half a century. The
California man came to Moline with
the impression that his brother was
an employe of one of the local fac
tories, mid he visited many of the
shops, but his search has been in
vain. The family formerly lived in
Davenport, but in 1S40 Henry left that
city, and has not seen his brother
; ince. In 1SC0 he located near San
Francisco and purchased large tracts
of land. The property has doubled in
value many times and Mr. Johnson is
iiiivv a wealthy man. If he finds his
brother he will take him to California
and make him independent for the re
mainder of his life. If Mr. Johnson is
unsuccessful in locating his brother
in this city, he will follow other clues
in the hope of finding the only other
remaining member of his family.
Mrs. F. G. Jamison has returned
from Fort Madison. Iowa, where she
attended the funeral of her brother,
John Hinder, who died in that city last
Friday, in his 64th year. He was for
many ye,ars a resident of .Moline, and
leaves many friends in this city. He
leaves his widow and two daughters.
I Jessie and Ruth, besides his mother,
Mrs. Melissa Sands, and his two sis
ters. Mesdames F. G. Jamison and E.
L. Cook, of this city.
A striking design has been adopted
by the Moline Plow company for its
St. Louis fair exhibit. Its feature is
that it is altogether distinct from the
usual scheme of a display, ami it is
bound to attract attention, a merit
which the company feels will more
than compensate for the expense en
tailed. The feature will be a repro
duction of a quaint old Dutch wind
mill now standing at Lawrence, Kalis.
The body will be built of rough hewn
wood, just as the original was cut by-tin-
pioneers. Within will be a com
plete set of offices for the meu in
charge of the fair exhibit, and in ad
dition there will be a reception room
for visitors and friends of the com
pany and its goods. The interior will
be modernly equipped, and the entire
mill will be set off with brilliant elec
tric lighting. The wheel wijl.be of

the project. A Jetition for paving Six
