IN MISSION WORK
Pastor of Grace English Lu
theran Church Called to
ACCEPTS OFFER OF SYNOD
Will Be Stationed at Rajahmnndry,
India, a City of 40,000 Inhabit
antsLeaves in Spring.
At the annual meeting of the Re
liance club of Grace Lutheran church,
held last evening at the Watch Tower
inn, Rev. I. O. Nothstein, pastor of
Grace church, Seventh avenue and
Forty-fourth street, made announce
ment of the fact that he had accepted
a call to the foreign mission field. The
call extended by the foreign mission
board of the synod was received by
Rev. Mr. Nothstein a month ago and
was entirely unsolicited on his part,
and so urgent was the call that he
feels it can not be refused. He will
go to the mission field in India and
will be stationed at Rajahmundry, a
city of 40,000 inhabitants. Here are
located the principal institutions of
the Lutheran Bynod, including hos
pltals, high schools and seminaries,
and ministering to a community of 2,-
000,000 Telucus. Rev. Mr. Nothstein's
work here will be along educational
lines as it is the desire of the board
that he take up the work of establish
ing a seminary for native pastor.
During the coming year Mr. Noth
stein will take up special work in
preparation for the foreign mission
field and he expects to take up his
new duty in July of next year, his
work at Grace church to continue till
April. He has been connected with
Grace church for the past five years.

The hearing on the application for In
junction asked for by J. M. Beman and
Larmore & Co., against the city of
Rock Island, hoard of health and the
health commissioner, occupied the en
tire day today in the office of the
master in chancery, Joseph L. Haas,
before whom the arguments were made.
Attorneys Lannen & Hiekey of Daven
port argued all morning in showing
cause why the prayers of the petition
should be granted, and this afternoon
Attorney J. F. Witter -replied k on be
half of the city and the other defend
ants named in the application. It
seems probable that all the arguments
will be made in time to allow the mas
ter to pass on the application tomor
row morning, though thus far it is
hard to see whether or not the tem
porary injunction asked for will be
Qnmtlon of Validity.
It seems that the validity of the or
dinance under which the board of
health and the health commissioner
acted In declaring that the products of
the J. W. Beman and Larmore & Co,
ice cream manufacturing firms were
brought, will decide whether or not
the injunction will be issued, although
there are other things which are being
considered. The ordinance, however,
was the main point of attack of the
complainants' counsel in their argu
ments this morning.
Vpholds the Hoard.
Attorney Witter read a number of
i cases tending to show that the city au
' thorities acted within their proper
sphere in warning the people against
using the goods made by the two
firms. He also contended that it was
the duty of the health commissioner
to give warnings to the people as to
the quality of goods that was sold
them as well as to prosecute dealers
who disposed of goods that did not
meet the standards of the ordinance

DOG BREEDERS IN A TRUST?
American Kennel Club Is Sued ' Un
der Sherman Law.
San Francisco, Cal., Aug. 26.
That the pedigreed dog business is
controlled by a trust Is an allegation
made in two actions filed In the
United States circuit court here.
The American Kennel club, In which
August Belmont Is prominent, is be
ing sued for $1,500 damages under
the Sherman anti-trust act, and a
complaint has been filed asking the
federal officers to prosecute the club
on a charge of restraint of trade.
The suits are brought In the name
of W. E. Chute, a dog breeder, who
recently judged a Ehow under the
auspices of the National Dog Breed
ers association, and was thereupon
disqualified from using the stud
book of the American Kennel club.
