of power tnc! re salts. Con vers ion?
were repcrted cf which the pastor i. iu
no intimation till the confessions wen.
w- - i
'iftv pastor spoke on the
"Man? Inability to Escape from Sin,"
showing the futility of all plans devis
ed by men, in all 4he ages, and the
helplessness of all unaided mora ef
forts. Even the Mosaic law was
shown to be. not a means of saving
from sin, but of revealing to man
kind the fact of sin. Candidates for
baptism will apply to the church for
membership this evening. There will

TO MEET IN DEBATES
First Meeting Between Rock Island
and Davenport in Five
For the first time in five years repre
sentatives of the Rock Island and Dav-
crr-ort high schools will compete in a
ccr:te3t authorized by the faculties
when the two schools will compete In
the tri-city debate next month. It was
r lr nned to have a similar debate last
ar, but Davenport cancelled on the
;o::nds that the Davenport-Waterloo-Builington
debate was taking all its
time. The subject for the debate this
year is: "Resolved, that a graduated
income tnx would be a desireable fea
ture in our federal taxation." All in
comes under $5,000 ere to be consid
ered as exempt frcm the tax in this
debate. The subject is one of great im-irc-oiate
interest, as amendment to the
federal constitution providing for such
a tax is nov.- up to the states for ratifi
cation. The final tryout for places on the lo
cal school teams were held last night,
and the eix men to represent Rock Is
land chosen. The affirmative team
which will debate Davenport here con
sists of Ieo Stevens, Jonty Marshall
and Edward Reticker. The negative
team which will debate at Moline si
multaneously with the debate here
comprises Will Woodin, Wallace Le
:and and Thad Taylor. Four of the
men, Stevens, Reticker, Woodin, and
Taylor were on last year's team which
defeated Moline on both sides of the
guaranty of bank deposits question.
The date for the contest has not
been set, but it is expected that they
will be held some time in March.
i Deafness Cannot Be Cured
! by local applications, as they cannot
' reach the diseased portion of the ear.
i There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. DeafneSB is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous Hn
; ing of the eustachian tube. When
, this tube is inflamed you have a ruxnb
iling sound or imperfect hearing, and
!when it is entirely closed, deafness Is
the result, and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tube
restored to its normal condition, hear
ing win be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
: which is nothing but an inflamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.
We will givei $100 for any cases of
'deafness (caused by catarrh) that can
not be cured by Hall's Catarrh cure.

KROEGER AND B0RR0FF
Former Concert Pianist and Latter
Baritone Who Hm Been Heard
Beere In Oratorio.
The conservatory of music of Aa
gustana college la to have aa artists'
course. Hereafter auch a course will
b arranged for each achool term, and
upon such a. oouraa aome of the best
musical talent in the country will be
brought to the college. As these
courses are primarily for the benefit
of the pupils to the conservatory, they
will all be required to attend. Musical
artists have been brought to the col
lege heretofore, but not on any spe
cially arranged course. A course of
this kind will be a sort ef innovation
at the Augustana conservatory. It will
not only be highly beneficial, and also
a musical treat, for the conservatory
students alone, but also for the music
lovers of the tri-cities.
OSLT TWO WUMBERS.
There will only be two numbers on
the course for this term. The artists
who will come are a R. Kroeger, pi
anist, Thursday evening, Feb. 23, and
Albert Borroff, baritone, Monday ev
ening. May 8.
Mr. Kroeger is a well known concert
pianist from St Louis. A a teacher
he ranks among the beat la Missouri.
He also has quite a reputation aa a
composer. The nature of his program
here for the 23rd of this month will be
in the form of a recital and a lecture.
He will begin with the earliest com
posers, play come of their beat compo
sitions, lecturing as he goes along, and
he will end up with the best of the
modern composers. He will also plav
some of bis own composition.
This will not be Albert Borrors
first appearance here. Mr. Borroff ia
one of Chicago's bast baritone eoneert
and oratorio soloist. He took the bar
itone solos In "The Messiah" at the
jubilee festival eoneert last spring.
Although he does sot possess a very
heavy voice, he is a splendid singer
and an artist of the first rank. . Mr.
Borroff was the baritone soloist for
the Apollo club of Chicago In Its last
After this term It is the intention of
the conservatory faculty to put three
numbers cn the course each term,
bringing six high class artists to the
school each year.
