THE J. U. G. CLUB. COMPOSED
of Rock Island and Mcline ladies, was

Rev. J. B. Barth, pastor of the M. E.
church of Aledo, was the morning
preacher. From the words "To whom
shall we go?" he preached one of the
best sermons heard on the ground.
Among other things the speaker said:
"The greatest enemy of God is the
liberality of spirit of the Christian
church. Christianity provides for the
complete welfare of mankind: Chris
tianity has the strongest hold on man
kind. Christianity is the only thing
that satisfies the longing of the soul.
Christianity rejects none."
An innovation at the afternoon ser

children. It was a fine success. Miss
Hattle Clark of Preemption led.

study of the exact m?thod used in the!
murder of the egret, and in obtaining!
