The pastors of the churches of Rock
Island were warmly praised for their
faithfulness and energy by Rev. D. S.
Toy in the course of the service at the
Memorial Christian church last even
ing. "In all my travels in the evan
gelistic work I have never seen a bet
ter class of ministers than you have In
Rock Island," said Dr. Toy.
Dr. Toy's text for the evening's ser
mon was, "What shall I do then with
Jesus?" He told of Christ's appear
ance before .Pilate, ami said that, in
stead of the case being one of Christ
before Pilate, it should have been, and
really was. Pilate before Christ.
"Jesus is on trial now, and you are the
judge, to either reject Him or accept
Him as your personal savior. But just
as surely will Christ, at the judgment
day. sit in judgment of you; and if you
reject Him now, prepare to have Him
reject you at that time."
1'rrNttnuI Talk ('Ionfm.
Dr. C. T. Wheeler, in his farewell
service at the Spencer Memorial
church, devoted himself largely to a
personal talk to both church mem
bers and those not affiliated with the
church. He spoke of the coming cen
tral meetings as an opportunity to ac
cept Christ if one has failed in the
district meetings. In speaking of the

was particularly bitter against those

"So man can fa'l to take a position

ACTS VERY NAUGHTY
Simply Would Not Budge for Owner
and Guests Despite All Kinds
First you put it in a tank.

Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck.
Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck.
Thus hummed Charley Kindt for
three solid hours in front of the Rock
Island house this afternoon. For while
Charley was sorely puzzled, he was
too proud to let anyone know it. He
had lunched in the hotel cafe with a
parti' of friends, whom he invited to
take a spin with him in his prize auto
down to Andalusia and back during
the afternoon, and he had his guests
all comfortably seated, when lo! and
behold, the infernal machine refused
to budge. It had gone completely dead
while Kindt and his friends were din
ing. Not daunted, the theater mana
ger hauled forth his kit of tools and
went to work. Down on the pavement
he got full length under the machine,
which he proceeded to take to pieces.
Finally he found that the trouble was
the oil had been run out. This seem
ed easily remedied. But after a gallon
or so had been used without effect,
Charley ceased to muse and sing. He
grew desperate and tried something
else. From the bar he brought oil of
joy, high balls and gin fizzes, all of
which were poured into the capacious
mouth of the green monster.
Meanwhile the machine had been
pushed down street something like
half a block, and Kindt was still dili
gently tugging away. The tantalizing
conveyance seemed to be perfectly
content to keep close to the bar, and
try as Charley would, he could not
persuade it. otherwise. "This is the
first time I had this thing happen to
me in all my career as a chauffeur,"
said Kindt to one of the crowd that
had by this time gained considerably
in numbers. "It's what I get for leav
ing it in front of a Rock Island hotel.
The only wonder is that I found the
machine here at all when I came out.'
So saying, the disgusted Davenport
er proceeded to make a contract to
have the horseless, though mule-inclined
vehicle put out of his sight, and
sent Rube Taylor along to see that it
never came back.

Passes on Demurrers in Personal In
jury Cases Two Are Sustained
Habeas Corpus Proceedings.
Judge Gest this morning adjourned
circuit court for the term. This ses
sion has occupied 98 days, which is a
good record, and an unusually large
amount of business was pushed
through in that time.
Previous to the adjournment tht
court sustained a demurrer to a plea
of abatement in the case of Hectoi
Maertens ys. the George B. Swift com
pany. It is probable that the defend
ant company will now appeal to the
higher court on this point. The plain
tiff in this case brings suit to recover
for alleged injuries received while in
the employ of the Swift company in
the construction work at New Shops,
a timber fell on his arm. W. R.
Moore is attorney for the plaintiff, and

The demurrer to the bill in the case
of Fred W. Rank, administrator of the

court. Harker died from injuries re
ceived at Natick, having been caught
between an engine and a coal chute.
