Rock Island, Aug. 24. Editor Argus:
There is a lot of talk in The Argus and
elsewhere about building a bridge
across Rock river at or near Colona
or somewhere in that vicinity. I doubt
whether it is generally known that
Rock river is a navigable stream, and
that it has been so declared by a fed
eral court. This river comes under the
general bridge laws of the I'nited
States, and an act of the legislature
and permit from the secretary of war
is required to make a bridge across it
a legal structure. Were the ends of
the bridge in different states, an act of
congress would be needed. All bridges
built across Rock river below Dixon
since March 3, isfi;, are illegal if not
provided with an act of the state legis
lature and permit above mentioned, and
arc as such liable for al! damages due
to their t-xislonce. Section It of the
rivers and harbors act of March 3,
1S99, fixes the status of Rock river
Minht lip Intri-Ntalr Strram.
While the I'nited States courts have
actually decided on the navigability of
the river only as far up as Dixon, it is
believed that, if the matter were
brought into court, such navigability
would be extended beyond the state
line into Wisconsin, thus making Rock
river an interstate stream. In this
event an act of congress would be re
quired to legalize a bridge across Rock
river.' Even under present conditions,
I believe that such an act is desirable.

Tindairs Grove, Aug. 24. (Special
Correspondence to The Argus). The.
Bible leason was given by Rev. T. J.
Wood. His subject for the niornin;
lesson was "The Hible, Its Mission."
At 10:30 Rev. C. E. Hawkins preach
ed an instructive and interesting ser
mon, taking for his text 1st Timothy,
4th chapter and l(5th verse. He sai l
that this is a personal consideration,
not a mental self nor a physical self
alone, though these are not to be treat
ed lightly. The inner self is the high
er and better self. Ideals are neces
sary but must be secured from the
ture. As a true ideal the Holy Spirit
is necessary. "Ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Spirit is come upon
you." Self is more than body and
mind. Purpose and executive powe
must be united. The sermon through
out showed thought and preparation
and was eloquently delivered.
The afternoon's address was given
by Rev. J. W. Edwards before the W.
F. M. S. Mrs. M. E. Mattison of Rock
Island presided Miss Mary Armstrong
sang a solo which was highly appro-
ciated. Rev. Edwards said: Even
moral is right or wrong according to
every obligation. The man doing right
against wrong is the one who has set
up the court of this conscience th
highest tvpe of Christian character.
The perishing condition of the heathen
world, with the means at hand, is suf
ficient reason for this people to help.
Paul as a missionary was a man witn
strong mind yet humble, his work was
preaching. Through nature God gives
man to God. 'We hear the voice
take mc ami use me for the glory
of God. Activity is a stimulus fo
Christian grace. We have a responsi
bility for our neighbors. Revelation
and providence teaches ns the eartii
has not reached its highest.
Rev. H. E. Shult of Uifayette, ex-di.-s
trict president of the Epworth league,
talked to the young people on the
thought of duty.
Rev. G. E. Shaffer of Aledo followed
taking for his subject, "Who is on the
