A FEATURE OF
Long Column of Sunday School
Pupils of County Marches
ARE MANY PRETTY FLOATS
Presents One of Most Interesting
Spectacles Ever Seen Here
Outing at Long View.
- Rock Island this morning witnessed
one of the most novel and interesting
parades which has ever passed
through the city's streets. The pa
rade was the main feature of the Sun
day school rally of the county which
is on today at Long" Vb'w park. nTe
parade column was made up of Sun
day school pupils, ,ut it included both
f id and young, the ages ranging from
those of little children of a half dozen
years and less, to those who have
passed or ate Hearing the three score
!:iid 111 mark. There were two parties
in the parade, the mem hers of which
would probably average in age well
past the CO year mark. There were
ihe members of the (!. A. It. drum
cops of Moline, all grizzled veterans
of the civil war, and I he four elderly
ladies of the ltioadway school, wlui
occupied a carriage in the parade.
The column made a very charming
iippearance, with its happy f.'ced lit

The parade formed at the coirt
house on Third avenm?. Soin of the
50 schools which had expected to par
ticipate were delayed in arriving, a::d
it was nearly 10:SO before the forma
tion was completed. Practically all
of the schools which had announced
' their intention to be represented in
the parade had delegations on hand,
and when the column started there
were several thousand Sunday school
representatives in ti:L lino. Rev. F.
E. ShuU. pas: or of the Spencer Me
morial Methodist church, acted as mar
shal of the parado, a:ul was mounted,
at the head of the column. He had

rally at Long View park and the an

to the city from the mra districts of
Rock Island and Scott couuties.
It is probable that there never has
been so large a delegation of people
from the lower end of the eounty in
the city on any other occasion. Near
ly 70o from Drury and Buffalo Prairie
came up On the steamer Columbia and
hundreds- from the other townships
of the low?r end came on the trains
and scores of others drove to Rock

Some ltrncllve I'IoiiIh.
There were many . attractive floats
n the . parade. Seme were merely
large wagons, the edges covered with
bunting or a banner hearing the school
name, and loaded wiih little children
Others were more elaborate, and were
profusely decorated in floral designs
and colored bunting and paper. ' Of the
liffercnt schools, Broadway Presbyte
nan nan tno largest representation.
There was a "large company of pupils
on foot, and two large floats drawn by
four horses each. Directly behind the
Broadway came the delegation of the
South Park chapel of Broadway, with
another large column marching, and a
well filled float. Including the chapel
Broadway's delegation was considera
bly over 300. Bethel Sunday school
had a very pretty float, decorated in
an elaborate floral design, and followed
by a company of young ladies carry
ing black parasols decorated with pa
per in the same color scheme. Ahead
of the Aiken street chapel float was a
youth in a decorated cart, drivin
donkey. The Aiken street float rivaled
that of the Bethel school, and 'there
was much difference of opinion as to
which was the more attractive. Like
the Bethel float, that of the Aiken
street school was decorated in an elab
orate design of floral harvest time
The McKinley Baptist float was a
wagon filled with dark skinned young
sters of various ages, their faces-gleaming
with delight and excitement.
The United Presbyterian school of
this city had two floats, the Baptist
Sunday school had one large wagon.
and the Edgewood Baptist school also
had one large fleiat.
The McClelland Heights school
marched in a ,novel arrangement. Its
delegation was encircled by a long
rope, and the marchers were in double
column, each of the young people
grasping the rope with one hand.
Probably no feature of the parade at
tracted so much attention and won so
r I j much applause as did the Graham post
j (arum corps. 1 ne veterans were greer
v ,ejd on every side with cheers and ap-
in the carriage at the head of the
column were Mayor II. C. Scliaffer and
three of the members of the executive
committee of the County Sunday
School association II. E. Van Duzer,
the president; Rev. Maiion Humphreys,
corresiionding secretary, and Dr. J. W.
Stewart, chairman of the reception
The line of march of the parade was
east tin Third avenue from Sixteenth
to Twentieth street, north to Second
avenue, west to Sixteenth street, and
south to Long View park. The entire
mo' of march was decorated with
bunting and flags in honor of the oc
At Ihe Irk.
At the park this noon the visitors
njoyed a picnic dinner, the various
schools in most cases joining for the
feast. All of the delegations came
quipped with heavily laden baskets,
md there was more than enough to
feed every one of the hundreds of hun
;ry little children on the grounds.
This afternoon a program Is being
arried out at the park. The program
ncludes various athletic games 'and
contests, brief speeches, and music.
Prizes are to be awarded the winners
