7"c Store that SaVcs &ou Money
YOUNG & MeCOS,
W F WE were willing to carry ov-r any goods in our Carpet de
psrtment from one season to the next, then mingle them
with the new goods and ssll the whole stock as perfectly fresh,
perhaps we would not have inaugurated the 7 days' Carpet and
Rug Sale at this time; also, wc would not care to call your at
tention so repeatedly to the fact that a!i our goods are the latest
from the hands of the manufacturers. There is nothing kept over
here: everything is sold at one Ffice or another this fact makes
end-of-season opportunities for those who are willing to wait; but
most important of all, those who buy now may confidently rely
upon buying the newest, the latest and the best at end-of-season
prices. Anticipating a number of changes throughout our store
in the very near future, we deemsd it advisable to cut the prices
now just at a time-when every housewife is adding new Car
pets, Rugs, Lace Curtains, Portiers, Linoleums, Mattings, etc., to
her already beautiful home. Remember, wc are leaders in this
department, others bringing up the rear, and if at any time you
hear the "parrot" making a noire because we were on the
ground first, pay little attention to it, but keep on the watch for
our advertisements; they will always contain something of very
especial interest to the people of the tri-cities.

urged parents to watch their sons and
keep them from becoming addicted to
the use of liquor. He held that the
liking for liquor is not hereditary, but
is cultivated. His experiences in the
saloon, and his observations while in
the business, were told in a forceful,
convincing manner that won his audi
ence. Sociability through the saloon
he assigned as one of the great influ
ences that make drunkards. He was
engaged in the business as a bartender
for 12 years, working in the prominent
places of Indianapolis and Anderson,
and other Indiana cities.

GRAND CHORUS TAKES PART
Knights Tonplar of Davenport Join
With Rock Is'snd Commandery
in Service at Central Church.
While the weather was not altogeth
er promising in the early morning and
there was a chill in the atmosphere all
day, Master proved a bright occasion in
Rock Island yesterday. In the morning
the churches were thronged, and there
were the customary evidences of the
day In the- spirit of religious joy aiui
praise and bright raiment. In nearly
every house of worship ;n the city the
day was observed in pretty lloral dec
oration and special ceremony. This
was especially true of the Roman Cath
olic. Episcopal and Lutheran churches,
in all of whicli there were exceptionally
impressive and inspiring musical pro
grams, the vested choir at Trinity, eel
ebrating the dawn of Faster morn, by
inarching around the church grounds
and in at the main entrance at the C
o'clock service, singing "Jesus Christ
Is Risen Today."
In the afternoon nyiny people sought
the drives and promenades .and when
night closed in the re was apparently a
general sigh of relief in that, notwith
standing there had been intervals of
threatening weather, no rain had fallen
on Easter day.
f'nnlntn nt II ron i n n y.
An audience that filled the church to
the doors, many even being unable to
enter, listened to the almost perfect
rendition of II. W. Porter's cantata.
"The Resurrection" given yesterday
afternoon at Broadway Presbyterian
church, by a choru?. of over a hundred
voices, under the excellent direction of
Dr. A. II. McCandless. The chorus
was assisted by Miss Katherine Gest,
organ; Miss Marian McCandless
piano; Mrs. II. E. Van Duzer, cornet;
Mrs. T. B. Reldy, Mrs. Amelia Schmidt
Gcbblc, soprano; Miss Gertrude Water
man and Miss Alma Philbrook, alto;
H. T. Wheelock and Dr. C. R. McCand
less, tenor, and J. A. Johnson and Gil
bert R. Graves, bass, and J. W. Day,
organ. That Dr. McCandless has been
untiling in his efforts in directing the
chorus was demonstrated by the excel
lent work of the chorus yesterday af
ternoon. The beautiful, melodious can
tata was rendered almost perfectly
from beginning to end, with never a
Haw nor weak part, and it was without
doubt one of the best Easter services
ever given In the city. Worthy of spe
cial mention, perhaps, was the solo,
"The Thirst of God," by Mrs. Reldy,
with choral accompaniment, which
was sung with exquisite effect. Mrs.
Gobble, Miss Waterman. Mrs. Whee
lock, and Mr. Graves sang with, their
accustomed beauty and sweetness of
voice and interpretation.
On the second part of the program
Mr. Wheelock sang Gounod's Sanctus, j
with choral accompaniment In his in-
"The Heavens Are Telling." from
Haydn's "Creation," was the last num
ber on the program and was a litting
climax to an excellent program. This,
one of the grandest compositions writ
ten, was rendered with perfect inter
pretation and the climaxes could hard
ly have been improved upon. The con
cert was given for the benefit of Beth
any Home and a. silver offering
amounting to 150 was taken for this
purpose. The concert will be repeated
at the Firtt Congregational church
Moline, this evening.

The Easter festal service of the
Knights Templar at the Central Pres
byterian church was participated in by
S3 members of Rock Island command
cry. No. 18, and St. Simon of Cyrenc
commandery, No. i), of Daveniort. The
knights met at the Masonic temple in
this city, and in command of Eminent
Commander II. A. J. McDonald, march
ed to the church, where the service
was held at 2:0 o'clock. Beautiful
Easter music was sung by the church
quartet and soloists, and the pastor,
Rev. Marion Humphreys, delivered a
sermon on "Easter Hope."
In his sermon Mr. HumpLreyo en
deavored to impress the i '; a i'-rt
Easter hope should not be a hope and
trust in Christ for the things in this
world, but for a future life, lie took
his text from 1 Cor. 15:19. where Paul
forcibly presents this idea in his
epistle. "We should not regard Christ
as the man of Galilee." said Mr. Hum
phreys, "but we should look to him aa
the resurrected Christ. In the resur
rected Christ lies our hope for the
world to come."
