After a most Instructive meeting the
annual convention of the Rock Islcd
County Sunday School association was
brought to a close last evening at tie
Silvis Baptist church. The final ad'
dress was given by Rev. F. E. Shult of
Rock Island, who chose for his sub
ject "A Look Into the Future," follow
ed by a consecration service and ben
ediction pronounced by Rev. W. E.
Story of Moline. The work all through
was Intensely practical, the able in
structors speaking out of the abund
ance of their own wide experience.
Every address was followed by a con
ference, and the interest was so great
that it was with considerable difficulty
that the president confined the instruc
tors to their allotted time. Henry Mo
ser, superintendent of the advance
work of the state and one of the ablest
and oldest of the state field workers,
gave to the convention some helpful
Ideas along the line of organized class
work. The county has made splendid
headway in this direction during the
past year. The Jsecretary reported that
there were 14 organized adult classes
last year in the county which con
formed to the state requirements and
this year there are 40. The First
Methodist church of Rock Island and
the First Methodist church of Mollno
seem to lead all others in this respect.
How to Balld Up School.
E. C. Knapp of Chicago, who is Sun
day school lecturer at the Chicago
Theological seminary, and also con
ducts two large schools in Chicago,
spoke in the afternoon of Tuesday on
"How to Build Up a Sunday School,"
and he told how he had taken poor
downtown city schools and built them
up into large, flourishing schools by
the use of simple methods which he
employed. It was a practical address
of over an hour and was listened to
with intense interest. " The only re
grettable thing was that the superin
tendents wfco needed it most were not
present to hear it. He spoke in the
evening on "How to Hold the Boy in
Sunday School, or Ten Reasons Why
the Boy Did Not Stay In the Sunday
The first reason he gave was that
the Sunday school is too "pokey";
the second, the teacher did not know
the boy; the third, the teacher did not
.care for him; fourth, the music was
no good; fifth, the teacher was nega-
i tive In his instruction, always saying,
Johnnie, don't do this, or that, or the
other thing, instead of telling him to
do certain things; sixth, the boy was
not encouraged seventh, he was urg
ed too tactlessly to become a Chris
tian; ninth, a dignified and cheerful
type of Christianity was not held up
to him; tenth, the father did not at-1
tend Sunday school.
Plana la Elementary- Grades.
Mrs. H. M. Leyde of Chicago spoke
Tuesday afternoon on "Practical Plans
in Elementary Grades," and her dis
course was fascinating and instructive
So pleased were the delegates with
her instruction that another hour was
given to her after 4 o'clock p. m., when
the convention was to have been tak
ing a recess. She also spoke Wednes
day afternoon on the "New Graded
Mrs. C. W. Hawes read a paper on
"The Importance of the Intermediate
Work." It was a gem in itself, and
set before the teachers the responsl
bilities and possibilities attaching to
J. E. Delmarter or Chicago was
chorus director and by his masterful
leadership filled the convention with
the Inspiration of song. He is an ar
tist in his line rand gave to the dele
gates much useful information as to
how music should be conducted in the
John Hauberg spoke on "County
Sunday School Day" and showed the
great things this day has done for the
county in stimulating the interest in
Sunday schools, binding the workers
together in ties of friendship, elevat
ing the moral sentiment of the com'
munities and giving the children the
very best time of their Jives.
. Next Meeting; at Reynolds.
Most of the old officers, both execu
tive and department, were reelected
The few changes made were as fol
lows: Wilson V. Hunt was elected to
the vice presidency Instead of Harry
Ainsworth; Clarence Trevor was elect
ed one of the executive committee
Miss Emma McConnell of Reynolds
was elected to the position of corre
sponding secretary instead of Miss
Stella Shulte and Mrs. H. B. Sudlow
was elected as superintendent of ele
mentary work In 'the county instead of
Mrs. Ed Cowley of Moline.
The Silvis .people deserve much
praise for the excellent way in which
they took care of so large a number.
Three meals were served in the
church and everything was furnished
in abundance and of the best quality
There is nqthing but praise for them

The men In Germany do not marry.
They are married. They are more or
less passive articles .of sale, which
stand in rows in the matrimonial shop
window with their price labeled In J
large letters in their buttonhole, wait
ing patiently for a purchaser. They
are perfectly willing, even eager, vic
tims. They want to be bought, but
their position does not allow them to
grasp the initiative, and they are
thankful when at last some one comes
along and declares herself capable and
willing to pay the price.
The girl and her mother, with their
purse in hand, pass the articles In re
view and choose out the one which
best suits their means and fancy.

also they had their will.. One married
a great painter, one a poet and another

witness against the system, but a
proof that geniuses may occasionally
be very uncomfortable partners. In
this case the purchasers were rich and
popular and could therefore make their

INITIATION FOR A
New Arrival from West Put Through
Stunts at Night on Zion
Class rivalry between freshmen and
sophomores of Augustan a, college
broke out last night when the sopho
mores, .unable to prolong the suspense
which has been hanging over the rival
classes, took it into their own hands
to administer a gentle initiation to one
of the "freshles." About 8 o'clock, 10
husky sophomores assembled secretly,
marched up the steps of the dormitory
to the room occupied (by P. H. Cesan-
der, a recent arrival from the west,
whom the "sophs" had selected as a
victim to initiate into the mysteries
of college life. Rapping at the door.
they were welcomed to come In by
the unsuspecting freshman, who also
accepted their invitation to "come
along and have some fun."
Once m the clutches of the band of
sophomores, the surprised "fresble"
was escorted to the summit of Zion
hill, where he was requested to "make
a speech." Imitating Demosthenes,
however, was not to his liking, and
when he showed his reluctance the
kindly "sophs" proceeded to adminis
ter an egg shampoo. Resistance was
useless and the unwilling freshle was
compelled to undergo the ordeal. At
the request of his captors he also
avowed that he "loved the sophs from
the bottom of bis heart." Then, after
passing through a series of perform
ances for the edification of his captors,
such as singing and barking at the ev
ening moon, he was escorted to a near
by lunch room, where milk was serv
ed with a spoon.
SMITH WINS IN GEORGIA
Defeats Governor Brown Who Was
Running for Reelection.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 6. Hoke Smith
yesterday was elected to serve a sec
ond term as governor of Georgia.
Incomplete returns indicate that
Governor Joseph M. Brown, who de
feated Smith two years ago and who
was defeated for the gubernatorial
nomination in the August democratic
primary, and whose name yesterday
was placed before the voters as an
independent democratic candidate,
did not receive a majority of the
votes cast in any one of the 146
countes of the state.
All of the regular democratic nom
inees for state and county offices
were elected, the- vote for the so
cialist ticket being inconsequential.
Three constitutional amendments ap
parently were adopted by large majorities.
