ize the efforts of tba Sir KnighU and

The beautiful asylum and. parlors, of the
commandery and the lodge rooms of the
order were thrown oien to the guests of
the evening, which numbered about two
hundred. Bleuer's orchestra furnished
the music. The banquet was in charge
of the ladies of Trinity guild and a
feast befitting the occasion was it that
was spread in the ten pie dining ball.

Ntandlne U' blaUh.
The infatuation with which tbe people
of Galsburg regard 'he deposed pastor,
Xyhladh. must have reached its climax
Tuesday evening, in it concert for his ben
efit ut one of the public halls in that city.
That he is not without his devotees was
shown by the fact that the ball was filled
to its utmost capacity, there being scarce
ly elbow room. The charges of immor
ality made against tbe young man in Mo.
line, which led to bis expulsion from
church and college, and subsequently,
after a pastorate of several months, from
the pulpit of tbe Fist Lutheran church
of Galesburs, have through the operation
f sympathy and apparent disbelief of
their truth, been a "soft snap." One of
bis personal and wannest friends tells tbe
Dispatch that since tl e chargesjwere made
public, Xyhladh, who has not since his
release from the pulpit in that city been
doing much of anything, received nearly
$800 in donations and subscriptions. At
Tuesday evening's d nionstration the ag
gregate proceeds of a collection for his
benefit were f 167, aad the presentation
was made by the Rev. Mr. Christiansen,
of the Swedish Minsion church, who made
this the occasion for short sermon. Ny
bladh made a very 'hankful response in
which while naming no one, be gave
Prof. C. P. Rydholni, of Augustana Col
lege, a sly scoring. The Professor in a
recent sermon in Ga esburg is reported to
have advised Nyblarih to leave the city
find draw no more money from the peo
Diamond Jo ('aptntun.
Tbe Diamond Jo company has made
some of its appointments for the ensuing
year, though the full crews have not yet
been as-signed. Th) following masters
have been officially announced, and,
though not assigned to boats, they prob
ably will be as follows: John Killeen,
Pittsburg; Wm. Roland, Mry Morton;
L. II. Cubberly, Sidney ; B. A. Conger,
Josephine. Eilleen is the chief captain
of the line and has t eon for years com
mander of the flag ship. Boland was
with the Jo line for it number of years,
and resigned three years ago to go on
the Missouri river- lie and Killeen are
brothers-in-law. Cubberly is promoted
this season from a chief clerk's berth.
Conner is a veteran He will probably
take the Josephiue to Kansas City for
excursion business the coming season,
while the Libbie Conger will again be
assigned to these waters for pleasure
purposes, and with Capt. Geo Lamont
Henry Htoltenberg, for a number of
years foreman In tbi yards of the Rock
Island Lumber & Manufacturing com
pany, died at 3 o'clock yesters
day afternoon at his home,
2517 Fourth avmue. He leaves a
wife and four children. He served
gallantly during the civil war as a mem
ber of First Iowa cavalry, and has been
a comrade of Bufor J Post G. A. R. for
several years. Tbe funeral will occur
Sunday with intermunt at Davenport.
Timothy Buckley, one of the old resi
dents of Canoe Creek, died at 5:30 yes
tcrday afternoon. He was an uncle to
Mrs. Daniel Corken and to Police Officer
Wm. McCarthy. The funeral will occur
tomorrow morning, Mrs. Corken and Mr.
Lawyer Looney .
The numerous friends of Mr. John
Looney, manager-of the Western Lnion
Telegraph office, wi 1 be auprised and at
the same time plea Jed to know that be
was admitted to the bar at Mt. Vernon on
Tuesday last, pass ng bis examination
with high honors. Mr. Looney has been
putting in his spare momenta for the past
two years in reading law, and the sequel
shows that be has bn a diligent student.
He does not con tern plate putting bit legal
knowledge to practical use, for the pres
ent, at least, but will continue In his
present capacity with the telegraph com

THE WIND UP.
Thft I,at Xlcht f the BUc Fair
The Honpttal Benefit. --The Indus
trial Asportation Closes Oat.
Tbe merchants' exhibit for the benefit
of St. Luke's hospital at tbe Rock Island
rink last evening did not meet the antic
ipations of those who shouldered the un
dertaking and engineered it through,
prompted as they were only by a spirit of
charity. Tbe results are consequently
very discouraging to these efforts in be
half of a charitable and well deserving
institution which has already received
one unmerited blow this season. The ex
hibits have not looked better during the
entire fair than they did last nigat, and
the instrumental musical entertainment
from tbe Bowlby pavilion was heartily
enjoyed, Prof. Woodvatt's orchestra from
Molioe, rendering several popular airs
delightfully and producing a number of
xylophone and cornet solos.
The total receipts were $134 75, the
expenses being $55, which leaves the
sum of $70 75 for tbe hospital. A num
ber of our representative citizens who
were unable to attend, purchased a num
ber of tickets, Mr. J. J. Reimers, for in
stance, $20 worth; Mr. Fred Denkmann
$5; and Mr. Porter Skinner, 5.
Just before the closing of the fair a
number of the donated articles to the In
dustrial 'air were disposed of by auction,
and then the handsome range donated by
the iron moulders was ruffled, Mrs. Wm.
Robb holding the lucky number, 163.
Mr. E. Fickioger won the six bottles of
champagne, his number being 183
Tne fair has on the whole been a suc
cess, the Ahous of yesterday's estimate
of the net receipts $1.500 being as
close as it can be figured at present.
On to Wahlns;ioa
Company B, second regiment of the
national guards of the new state of south
Dakota and located at Sioux Falls,
passed through Rock Island early yester
day morning en route to the inaugura
tion. Tbe coach was decorated, and
pamphlets glowing with the roseate won
ders which envelop that cradle of all or
thodox blizzards, went fluttering from the
car windows. A half an hour later the
train from the southwest brought a coach
containing tbe famous Flambeuu club of
Topeka, Kan., accompanied by a military
baLd, and scattering to the winds the at
tractions of a state distinguished only by
barren plains and uninforced prohibitory
This morning some two hundred cow
boys arrayed in tbe trappings of tbe cat

Colt's "persuader," passed through from
Denver on their way to attend tbe inau
guration ceremonies. Buffalo Bill bead

taurs, and they will be mounted from his
stable, located near Washington City.

of people to composu a world.
A lMHtliigulotied Honor.
A graduate of Augustana College has
met with distinction and honor seldom
reached by one so young in experience.
Prof. Etiward Nelander who graduated
with honor from tbe collegiate course in
tbe class of 'HI, has been elected to tbe
chair of Scandinavian language and liter
ature of Harvard College. He therefore
fills in part the chair occupied by Henry
W. Longfellow, who was professor of
modern languages and who went to
Sweden while filling it to perfect himself
in Scandinavian literature. Prof. Nelan
der baa been president of Betheny Col
lege, Lindsburg, Kan., since his gradua
tion from Augustana.
The Bent EierclM for Children.
Instinctive gymnastics 1, from tbe bygiaoio
point of view, the bust adapted to tbe regular
development of tbe child. It is not liable to
any of tho objections we have brought against
gymnastics with apparatus. It cannot de
form the body, for it is niado up of sponta
neous movements, and conformed to the
natural office of each limb. It does not lo
calize the work hi a particular region of the
body, for all tbo Uiuba are instinctively In
vited to take their quota of exercise; and it
does uot seduce tbe child into efforts touching
upon the limits of bis strength. Instinct(
also invites him to tbe kind of work which
is best adapted to bin particular aptitude for
resisting fatigue. He has a natural disposi
tion to perform light but frequently recur
ring acts, quick motions, which put him out
of . breath, while exercises with apparatus
rather exact slow and iuteuse efforts that
bring on local fatlgua Now, all observers
have noticed the wonderful facility with
which a child recovers his breath, and his
impatienco of local fatigue. Finally, natural
exerci.se, being tbe satisfaction of a want, is
by that very fact a pleasure; and joy shines
in the face of tbe child who is playing freely.
IL Fernan Lagrange in Popular Science
Ileadlng OB a Tattler.
Tbo workers of the world do not gossip,
but the idle man and the idle woman, the
people who do no more toiling than they are
obliged to, whose brains are in a state of
mental vacuity, are the pefits of evary com
munity. That was proof of a fine character, Mrs.
X's remark to Mrs. Z when the latter at
tempted to tell Mrs. X something of a new
resident's previous history. Mrs. X drew
her tall form up into tbe air, as she said to
this would be betrayer: "If Mrs. Blank has
any blot ou her past I prefer to know it from
her. Until then I am quite willing to taka
her for what she seems."
The feminine Judas slunk away, still
smiling, bnt she lost no time in saying: "Mrs.
X is getting very airy. I could tell soma
things about bor."
Could she have told anything, and what
did she know! Nothing, absolutely. Yet
her "ambiguous giving out" were worse
than open enmity. Mrs. Z bad a vague idea
that Mrs. X, like moat hot headed, impulsive
people, bad committed soma youthful Indis
cretions which, published to the world, would
make shipwreck of her reputation. In point
of fact, Mrs. X's chief offense was in being
cleverer than Mrs. Z. like listeners, those
who allow themselves to gossip carry their
own punishment with them. Buffalo Courier.
A Ufa Tim Female.
Mrs. Wilhelma Look, tbe only life term fe
male prisoner in Joliet (Bis.) prison, baa had
her sentence commuted by Governor Oglasby
to thirty years. Mrs. Look was plaoad in tba
penitentiary April 19, 1876, and under tbo
rules allowing a deduction for good behavior
the woman will be released in three and a
half years. Mrs. Look was convicted of the
murder of ber husband, aba having fallen in
love with a farm band whom they employed.
