Benefits at Banquet.
MOLDING MORAL STRENGTH
Held Every Community Has Two
Classes, One Standing for Good
and Other for Evil.
The Rock Island county Sunday
school day committee met at the Watch
Tower last night and enjoyed a sump
tuous banquet. H. E. Van Duzer pre
sided as toastmaster. The following
gentlemen were present: John Hau
berg, Harry Ainsworth, Wilson P.
Hunt, O. E. Childs, E. Osborn, Clar
ence Trevor, Rev. C. Arthur Lincoln,
Moline; Rev. Marion Humphreys, Rev.
Frank E. Shult, Dr. J. W. Stewart, E.
B. McKown, William M. Reck, Rock
Island. The toasts were limited to five
minutes, and every one present used
up his allotted time.
( Other Toasts Responded To .
The following persons responded to
their respective toasts:
John Haubcrg, Moline "Is the Rock
Island County Sunday School Day a
Clarence Trevor "My Opinion of
Rock Island County Sunday School
E. B. McKown "What Dangers Con
front Us in Our Annual Rock Island
County Sunday School Day."
Rev. Frank E. Shult "Does Rock Is
land County Sunday School Day Pay?"
Rev. Marion Humphreys "Why Rock
Island County Sunday School Day

Harry Ainsworth "What Are Some

O. E. Childs "In Union is Strength,

Do to Improve Rock Island County Sun
day School Day?"
Wilson P. Hunt "What Can We Sub

William ?.T. Reck "Why Should the

"Life is strenuous, because of the
obligation laid upon each right think
ing and right minded person to do his
or her part in maintaining righteous
ness and decency in the community,"
the toastmaster said. "The perpetuity
of our republican form of government
and cherished free institutions that are
thereby vouchsafed us, depend abso
lutely upon personal and public morals,
and in order that these may be en
couraged and fostered, requires a con
stant fight, and as we love our com
munity, our state and our country, it
is imperative that we take time, also,
for these great purposes. Some one
has said that life is what we make it,
but in every community there are two
classes who are trying to make it: tne
one class Is trying to make it good, the
other class is trying to make it bad.
One class is striving to raise society
up to a higher plane of living, where
social intercourse is characterized by
that which is clean and pure and love
ly; where the intellectual, the moral
and the spiritual are incorporated and
emphasized; in other words, where
righteousness may prevail.
Chrlitlnnity Strongest Weapon.
"The other class are striving to pull
society down to the level of the brute
creation; where the individual is given
up to the indulgence of all his selfish
and animal desires; where the intel
lectual and moral are debased in the
indulgences In the worst form of vice.
Now if these terrible conditions inci
dent to this latter class are to be elim
inated from our community, we must
take time to uphold the good, for the
more good we inject into society the
more evil we crowd out. Now it seems
to me that the strongest weapon with
which to combat the evil is Christiani
ty, exerted through the medium of the
Sunday school. As one has said, 'As
the twig is bent, so the tree is in
clined.' The good book says, 'Train up
a child In the way he should go, and
when he is old he will not depart from
It.' And science has demonstrated the
fact that the laws governing the devel-

Lunch in our tea room
IT was fine to see the enthusiasm
among the shoe buyers in response
to our Monday advertising; and the
linen counters lined with busy buyers
all day long. Up in the ready-to-wear section

domestics, and in fact nearly every department was kept
hustling to serve the throng of buyers.
There's a heap of satisfaction in seeing such gener
ous response to our harvest offerings. It shows that our

believe in them.

Proprietary Medicines Prescribed by
Examination of the formulary de

throughout the country has proved
that a very large percentage of the
prescriptions filled for doctors are
for proprietary medicines.
This Is because the average doctor
of today is unable to devise prescrip
tions equally as efficaceous.

The July meeting of the Woman's
Christian Temperance union was held
yesterday afternoon at the home of
Mrs. R. G. Summers, 1416 Sixth ave
nue. The devotional exercises opened
the meeting and a short business ses
sion was held. The program was open
ed with two piano selections, "Spring's
Witchery" by Wilson Smith and "To
the Spring? by Grieg, given by Miss
Myrtle Summers. . "Heredity and
Health" was the topic for the after
noon riiKMiBgir.n and was xlven hv Dr.
Estella Norman of Moline, who gave
an interesting and able paper. Dr.
Norman stated that, in her judgment,
heredity was always more powerful
than environment. This statement was
forcibly demonstrated by illustrations
showing how a perfect type of animals
may be produced by employing the
four genii of organic life heredity, se
lection, segregation and variation- and
how futile training Is unless Inherited
characteristics of excellence are pres
ent. Dr. Norman made plain the neces
sity for some Law controlling 'the re
production of the Imbecile, diseased
and degenerate classes. As a nation,
we must preserve the best of our hu
man qualities and prevent the inroads
of degeneracy. Our nation will endure
only so long as the Ideas of Its found
ers remain dominant in the blood of
