When Broadway church vu but a

to the mission field. Graham Lee,
(then a young man, volunteered. In
189 J, after arduous study for the
purpose of fitting himself for the
work, he was ordained in Broadway.
"The service was beautifully Impres

RETIRXED LAST FALL.
A little more than a year ago. Rev.
Mr. Lee returned to this city, his
health failing and for months he re
mained on a farm of a brother in an
endeavor to regain his health. Last
fall, he set sail for Korea, vastly im
proved in health, and eager to again
take up his work. For a short time,
be was able to carry out his plans,
but recently physical ills have again-
set in and have forced him to utterly
abandon the work which he so loves.
He is returning home with his fam
ily and will spend the remainder of
his days here.
Possessing all of those personal
charms and magnetic influence, Rev.
Mr. Lee has had striking success In
his work. The natives with whom
be has come in touch worship him
and love him. When he first return
ed to Broadway after being in the
mission field, he told of his first fail
ures because he had depended so
much on the power of his voice to
win the natives, from idolatrous wor
ship. He soon discovered that In or
der to be eminently successful, he
would have to depend on something
infinitely greater than his eloquence
and seeing that, he was able to put
more emphasis on the message which
he had to deliver.
PLACE MILL BE FILLED.
Who shall take Rev. Mr. Lee's
place in the mission field, the pastor
and session of the church are at a
loss to decide, but that the work will
be continued, and that an effort will
be made to increase the number of
workers, is a certainty.
Rev. Mr. Lee is a son of the late
Mr. and Mrs. Mllo H. Lee and a
brother of Mrs. F. C. Denkmann of

SEASON TO OPEN IN MAY
lng when the sun passed-and-so-forth
and-so-on. But, gentle reader,
this is not the sort of spring weather
which gives Inspiration to that po
etic gush which flows forth via the
pen of some long haired poet. But at
that, there is no use complaining
about it. It will soon be over and
spring will soon assume the even
tenor of its ways, present indications
notwithstanding. And furthermore.
in years gone by, say the records,
weather has been even worse in
March than it is this year.
The oldest inhabitant broke loose
from his winter quarters a few days

olde" Argus files and find what sort
of weather visited this community in
those days. We have done that, and
feel better for it.
THIRTT YEARS AGO.
In the year of our Lord, 1881,
namely on the 31st day of March,
there fell upon the city of Rock Is
land some seven or eight inches of
beautiful snow. The severity of the
storm was as nothing compared with
storms of past days, but the unusual
occurrence of snow on the eve of
April Fool's day sort of made the na
tives pessimistic and cynical. The
storm was as unexpected on that date
as would be a like storm on the
equator. A few days later the snow
was gone and the proverbial April
showers set in.
Five years after that on the 19 th
day of March, 1886, a storm so se
vere that it cast remembrance of all
previous storms into insignificant ob
livion, visited this vicinity. The
street car lines were blocked and be
cause of the prevailing high wind, it
was days before they could be op
erated. Railroads suspended traffic
because of blockades. People were
held in cars which were stranded in
snow drifts and very few teams
could be seen on the streets for days.
It was the worst storm in decades
and it came just 26 years ago, day
Yesterday's storm, while it lasted,
was no miniature affair, and for a
while the elements gave an emphatic
Wisherd ! demonstration of what they could do
in a snort space or time. The sleet
wmcn ieu late in tne aay, put a
heavy crust over the fall, but a few
days of warm and real spring weather

NO FLOOD AT MILAN
DURING PAST MIGHT
No further flood troubles were ex
perienced at Milan last night or today
despite the fact that they were expect
ed. The ice gorge is still in evidence
but the water in Mill creek is finding
its way past the enormous pile of ice
without being stopped and forced
over the banks into the village. Large
portions of the outlying districts, es
pecially those to the west, are still in
undated and It may be weeks before
they are dry again. It is also within
the realm of possibility that there will
be more floods for the ice Is not yet
out of the creek and with the addition
al snow which fell yesterday, consider
ably more water will have to be car
ried off at short notice when the melt
ing starts in earnest again.
MOLINE MAN IS HELD
ON BIGAMY CHARGE
Martin Kutubskl, alias Smith, of Mo
line was today held for hearing on
charges of bigamy which grew out of
an abandonment charge on which he
was arrested several days ago. A
Chicago woman appeared in Moline
and complained to the police that her
husband had deserted her. They found
Kutubskl living with another woman
whom he said he had married in this
city some months ago. He claims that
he had reason to believe his first wife
had secured a divorce from him.
