THE ARGUS, MONDAY, JUNK 4, 1906.
The personal bondsman is fast
becoming obsolete ; the risk to pri
vate fortune is too great.
The corporate bond is just as rap
idly supplanting the old form ; and.
ia time, men will marvel that they
were ever called upon to incur the
danger of personal suretyship.
In point of safety, convenience and
propriety, there can be no com
parison between the two ; the one
is just as weak and perilous as the
Other is strong and safe.
The time is near when it will hr
thought as reasonable to borrow
the key of a friend's safe as to
borrow his name for surety pur
poses. Fidelity. Judicial, License and Con
tract Bonds promptly furnished.

REV. GRANVILLE II. SHERWOOD.
Mr. Sherwood took his text from 2d
Samuel. 23:15: "And David longed
and said. 'Oh that one would give me
drink of the water of the well of Heth
lehem. wnicn is by tne gate. it was
a masterly and eloquent discourse. In
introduction Mr. Sherwood said that of
the two sexes, women, though often the
braver in time of trial and sorrow, are
the more given to looking at the past
and its darkness than men, but he held
that the men who look only into tlx
future, as it applies to temporal tilings
and women who brood over the past
are the extremes. The normal is found
in one who looks at past, present and
future. The future depends much on
the past and the present. The greatest
omen of a bright future in an upright

sallow, the vitality is weakened and they suffer from a general broken down

the young men to more frequently

Klse by Honorable Mean.
In his remarks to the young men Mr.
Sherwood spoke of the common experi
ence of the schoolboy who carved his
name in his desk too deeply to be ef
faced, and as a consequence, while he
left his name there, his teacher and
others had been obliged to suffer from
it. It was the correct aim of every
young man to seek to carve his name

crown of life's work where success.
either commercially or in fame, had
been attained at the expense of some
Thr ltemlnder of the I'nxt.
While speaking to the young ladies.
Mr. Sherwood cited the incident of an
eagle that had been' held captive for
17 years, and finally when given its
freedom, it was unable to fly, until
suddenly the sun broke through the
clouds and the ray struck the eagle
straight in the eye. That was a re
minder of the past, and the bird,
spreading its wings, Hew away to the
tallest peak. It was the inspiration of
that memory of the past that brought
back to the eagle the proper use of the
wings which God had equipped for a

No person, man or woman, could be
expected to succeed who did not recall
at some time in life, especially in the
hours of most severe ordeal, the les
sons learned at a mother's knee, or
even some incident in the school life
that had left its impress for the better
life if frequently recalled.
It was this spirit, both as to the
past and the future, that Mr. Sherwood
urged upon his hearers. Make the best
of today, for it will soon be tomorrow,
and tomorrow will soon be yesterday.
Build in the present by applying the
good lessons of the past, philosophical

An accident that may cause the
death of Conductor S. C. Gifford, who
runs on the Iowa division of the Rock

took place yesterday at Atlantic, Iowa.
Mr. Gifford was in charge of the spe

convention in the east.
As the train was passing through
Atlantic the conductor was standing on.
the. platform of cne of the cars am:
was struck by a truck that had been
carelessly left too near the track, and
knocked to the brick paved platform.
He was picked up and removed to a
hospital, where it was found that his
skull had been fractured and he had
born terribly bruised. The train was
dtlaved and did not reach this city till
alter. 1 o'clock when it should have
been here two hours earlier.
Word from Atlantic today was to
the effect that Mr. Gifford was still un
conscious, but prospects were favora
ble for his recovery.
Mass on Trulu.
There was a feature connected with
the excursion that is believed to be the
only one of the kind on record. Orig
inally it was planned to stop in Daven
port yesterday for mass, but to save
time a special dispensation was secur
ed and services were held on the train
at 0 o'clock, while it was flying through
Iowa. An altar beautifully draped with
flowers, was set up in the observation
car and here the excursionists gather
ed. Mass was in charge of Father P.
