Rev. F. E. Shult. pastor of Spencer
Memorial church, as president of the
Peck Island Ministerial alliance, ex
tended greetings to tbe pastor and the
congregation of the Central Presbyter
Ian church. Rev. Mr. Shult said In part:
"In the name of the churches of the
Ministerial alliance, which includes all
but one Protestant church in the city,
I extend you the greeting of a common
desire, the greeting of a common con
scious want of righteousness and mor
ality. I extend to you the greeting of a
common interest, of a common purpose
and a common ideal. Our common in
terest Is that we all want and are work
ing so that Christ's kingdom will take
held of the community, and our pur
pose is to work for this interest. In
our Ideal, we are all working for one
end. X extend to you congratulations
for past victories, for your future pros
pects and for your unbounded oppor
tunities. This will all call for much
sacrifice and work, but God's blessing
is with you la It, and I pray that your
future may be a glorious one."
Church and Community.
Dr. Charles B. Boving of Hannibal,
Mo., who conducted revival services
with success at the Central church In
January, delivered the principal ad
diess of the evening. His subject was
"The Church's Contribution to the
Community." "The church is a con
tribution to a community's social life,
to its conscience and to its Christian
ity," said Dr. Boving. "It is affording
culture In developing the best there is
in all of the children. It is giving
ttem a healthy athletic body and a
sane mind, which is ruled over by a
moral mind and a clean heart. I am
glad to see the girls and boys in the
Call and See
A certain good dresser of
our city upon being told
we were receiving orders
every day now for fall and
winter suits, remarked
that it was good business
policy to keep up that
warm air, but he doubted
very much if we had re
ceived one order for a
winter suit. Upon calling
at our shop and seeing
for himself, he remarked
"Well, old man, you
certainly are busy, but
then you're entitled to it."

Een though the boys are full of fun
and mischief and the girls full of gig
gles, they will take an interest In the
work later on, and so benefit: them
selves and the community.
"There are many of you here tonight
who cherish memories of the beautiful
old edifice which, has recently been
razed to the ground. Some of you
first felt the Joy of the life with Christ
within its walls. To some of you It
has been a scene of sorrow and sad
ness, as when you stood there beside
the open casket of some loved one. To
others of you it has been one of glad
ness. You are all stepping over the
threshold into this new and promising
church. You have the prospects and
hopes of the future, which is filled with
Inspiration for Development. .
"7 he church In the community has
long been recognized as the leader In
education and development. This fact
is emphasized the world over by lead-
era The church ever has been an In
spiration. It was the church which
first, gave to the youth the training in
knowledge. But there may be all of
this culture of the mind of conscience
without the right foundation for the
character, and the right foundation for
character cannot be laid without Chris-
tterity. The church is stirring up, not
only women and children, but men as
well, as Is witnessed In the fact that
thousands of men gathered together
at Chicago last year to further the
vork in the foreign mission field."
Story Written on Parchment.
With intense interest, the people as
sembled about the speakers' stand, and
awaited tbe opening of the little box
which had been taken from the corner
stone of the old church, after a search
of many weeks. Many stories concern
ing the contents of the box have been
told. Some said that It contained daily
papers from Rock Island and other cit
ies, others that it contained old coins,
jewels and many other things. There
was great surprise among the audience
when the contents of the box were
made known. An old water-soaked
parchment, containing the history of
the church up to the date of the laying
of the corner stone, a copy of the Daily
Advertiser, now the Rock Island Argus,
and a copy of the Daily j'ews, now the
Rock Island Union, was all that was
found in the box. Rev. Marion Hum
phreys, with great care, deciphered the
faded lettering of parchment.

Attorneys Marvel at Intelligence Dis
played by Suspect Volunteers
to Go to Water-town.
George Reynolds, colored, who
was arrested while crazed with
drink, and held at the police station
yesterday, was tried in the county
court this morning for Insanity. As
each man was selected by H. M.v
Schriver, the assistant state's attor
ney, to act as Juror, Reynolds fur
ther examined him. One man who
had been chosen by the state was
objected to by Reynolds, who said
any person who lived in the neigh
borhood in which this man did was
not sane enough to pass Judgment
The witnesses were first examined
by the assistant state's attorney and
then Reynolds took them in hand
and subjected them to a severe cross,
examination. He answered all ques
tions submitted to him without hesi
tation, showing a remarkable mem
ory. The Jury retired after hearing one
of the most remarkable cases In the
court, and after being out for some
time, reported to the judge that an
agreement was impossible.
Willing to Take Treatment.
Reynolds, after hearing the ver
dict, stated to the sheriff that he
would be willing to go to the Wa
tertown hospital and remain there
till cured. Reynolds has been at
Watertown before. He is subject to
violent attacks of Insanity during
the summer months, but as soon as
the weather becomes. cool he regains
his normal self.
