PREACHER OF NOTE
IS TO SPEAK HERE
Pastor E. D. Sexton.
Much interest is beine centered in
the comins series of unsectar'an biblo
lectures to bo given here -under the
au.-pices of the International Bible
Students' association. who?e head
quarters are in London. H is an evan
gelistic work carried. on by Christian,
people from all denominations, with
the purpose of publicly examining the
bible testimony on subjects of import
ance to all. Collec'ions are never
solicited, and an invitation is extend
ed to everyone, especially all who are
in'crested in the bible.
"Beyond the Grave" is the subject
announced as the openinp theme,

; Empire thea're. Pastor E. D. Sexton.
of London, a leading evangelist, is
! taid to lie fully competent to handle
i thin subject, having studied on this
i particular "heme for years. He claims
'that the many different views set
! forth on what lies beyond the grave,
are ennfusinp, and that all Chris'ian
pecp.e should come losetner io ascer
tain what is the only ha-monioue
Ecriptural view to be held.
A good name is rather to be chosen
thau jirat r'chrs, ajid loving favour
lather than silver and gold.
The rich and r-oor meet together:
the Lord is the maker of tjiem all.
A prudent, man forseeth the evil,
pass on, and are punished.
By humility and the fear of the Lord
are riches, and honour, and life.
Thorns and snares are in the way:,
' nf t!ip forward- hp that fioth kppn hrs f
soul shall be far from them,
j Train up a child 'n the way he
I sho id go: and wheu he is old, he

DROPS 25 FEET
FROM A BRIDGE
Eight Eock Island Tourists Nar
rowly Escape Death
MACHINE A TOTAL WRECK
Plunges Through Space Landing
Creek Occupants' Escape
Eight Rock Island people, traveling
in a automobile, narrowly escaped
death yesterday morning when the
machine skidded cn a narrow bridge
near Batavia, jumping down an em
bankment a distance of 25 feet and
landing in a creek. The car was j
wrecked, but by a miracle did not turn
turtle. All of the party were badly j
bruised, but their injuries are not ser
ious. Those In the rnachine were Mr. and
Mrs. A. E. Mclnnis, 1502 Twenty-flfjh
street, and three children, Mabel, aged
10, Edna, aged 13, and Earl, aged 2;
also Mrs. L. S. Rasmussen, a sister of
Mrs. Mclnnis, together vith two chil
dren. Marie, aged 8, and Grace, aged
G months. Mrs. Mclnnis broke her
left arm just below the shoulder, but
the remainder of the party escaped
with but minor bruises.
The Rock Island tourists left for Ot
tumwa Thursday morning, but owing
to heavy rains were detained at Win
nVM. Yesterday morning just outside
Batavia, the machine started across a
bridge. Th boards were slippery ow
ing to the heavy rainfall, and the car
skidded, lurching suddenly to the side
and off the structure, on which there
w as no railing. The car plunged down
a 2-ri-foot embankment and landed in
a creek at the bottom. All of the oc
cupants in the car were thrown into
the water and received a duck
ing. All of them wore badly shaken
up. They returned to this city on the
Rock Island train last night, and the
ambulance was called to convey Mrs.
Mclnnis to her home. The machine,
which was a total wreck, will be ship
ped here later.

FAMOUS BARITONE ON
A 400-MILE CANOE TRIP
A broadshouldered man with the
buiid of a college gridiron hero, ac
companied by an athletic yonnj
woman the kind that does not scream
"Merciful Heavens'' when a mouse
trips across the dining room floor
both of them with sleeves rolled tip
revealing muscular arms tanned to
the color of walnut, stain, strode into
the New Harper lobby yesterday after
noon, and stepping up to the desk
asked the clerk for a 'room.
The ever-watchful guardian of the
hostelry critically inspected the rough
looking attire of the couple, gazed at
a small bundle which comprised tlieir
luggage and then cogitated.
Observing the general air of sus
picion which seemed to surround the
clerk, the man ventured. "We ar..
married and we have not cracked the
Fafe at the Libertyville bank. We are
not mendicants, neither are we strand
ed show people. To the contrary, we
are highly respee'ed citizens of
Madison, Wis. and have the necessary
government engraved certificates to
safeguard you against loss. When
leaving a hotel, we invariably make
our exit, via the front door and have
never taken our departure by the fire
esral,e route. We desire a room for
the night. I might furthermore add
that the absence of sartorial splash
is due to the fact, that we are making
an extended canoe trip, which does
not call for 18 changes of scenery per
The doubling clerk, slightly reasur
ed, extracted the pen point from the
usual po'ato, and handed it. over with
a motion which was anything but en
thusiasfic. The guest applicant then
inscribed the following "Mr. and Mrs.
A. H. Bassett, Madison. Wis."
Had the clerk been a follower of the
society page in lieu of the sporting
news and the police court columns he
would have immediately recalled that
a Mr. A. Til. Bassett of Madison, Wis.
was a famous baritone sinser, and also
that he gave a recit.al for the Cham
inade club of Havenport a few mon hi
ago. He would also have recalled that
the selfsame Bassett entertained a
select audience at Moline some years
ago, the occasion being a musicale
j given by the Moline Woman's ciub.
Mr. Bassett is known the country
j over and every winter makes an ex
tended concert tour, embracing the
leading cities of the Cnlted Statf.s
He ha8 a vecal studio a: Madison, at

There they will board a train and ship

"Is this a honeymoon trip," queried
an Argus reporter in couversa'icn
'ith the devotees of the simple Ufa
at the New Harper last night.
"No, it is our honeymoon anniver
sary jaunt," chorused Mr. and Mr
Bassett. "You see," explained Mr. Bas
sett, "we were married one vear atm
