The first session of tbe annual con-
Teotton of the R ck Island County Sab
Dam scbool association opened at 2 p.
m. yesterday in tbe First Baptist church
of Moline, with President S. D. Cleland
in the cbair, and E. B. McKown, secre
Rev. O. W. Gae, of this city, opened
with a half-hour season of thanksgiving
ana praise, setting forth tbe advantages
t j a christian of these privileges. The
speaker emphasized the Wt tbat we
have every reasoi to be thankful for the
success attendinc tbe work of tbe Sab
bath schools during the past year.
Rev, J. C. H. Read opened the second
topic: "What Need of a Convention.'
He said he came to welcome the dele
gates to tbe ccnvention, and to the
homes of Moline. First, Need of
convention: It tanda to awaken a svm
pathy between us as workers in this de
partment of tbe mister's vineyard. It
imparts an inspirition to tbe delegates
an iniercnan.ge or ideas we carry
back borne more lefioile plans of teach
log- A number of the delegates fol
lowed with a few remarks pertaining to J
i tie subject.
President Clel tnd spoke of the en
couragement to the work in our awn
county, prompted by the conventions in
the past years, ani illustrated by speak
ing of the life ion parted into a school
situated in the remote corner of the
county by the ins miration of last year's
President Cleland announced the fol
Resolutions A. W. Wftdsworth. Dr.
W. Stewart, John W. Welch.
Entertainment Mrs. J. K. Groom.
Nominations L. D. Edwards. Mm.
W. W. Bearbv ami F. L. Cook.
Then Grant Bacon, of Wilton, spoke at
p. m. on "Help ani Hindrances." As
a help, he mentioned a good superintend
ent, a man of sincere piety, strength of
character, promptness and earnestness;
a score of good teachers, those who are
zealous, feels thjir responsibility and
loves their schola-s. He suggested as a
means of help: teachers' meetings regu
larly held, a teacher's individuality
stamped upon the character of the pupil,
good music and not too much singing.
As hindrances be instanced a wrong idea
of duty. IIh said a common error exists
that teaching is preaching. A principle
in teaching is never to answer a question
that a child can answer. We often fail
when we persist in preaching to our class
instead of teaching, which implies ques
tions and answers by teacher and pupila.
General Secretary Woodford, of the
Moline T. M. C. A., talked about ''Hints
for Conducting Sabbaths." Honest crit
icism from the tiachers' pupils for the
benefit of the suerintendt nt should be
freely sought and given. Commence
promptly and very simple. Opening and
closing exercises were desirable in the
mind of the speaker. Each class should
be named insteac of numbered. Some
times it i9 well to have large clases
where there is a constant want of teach
ers. Personal acquaintance between tbe
officers, teachers end tbe pupils is a mat
ter of great impor.ance.
Rev. W. S. Marquis, of Rock Island,
conducted "A Molel Sabbath School."
Mr. Marquis drew a diagram of the model
school room showing the prominent posi
tion of the superintendent's platform
well located so as to command the view
of every person in the room; waiting
rooms for tbo?e tbat may be tardy, class
rooms, reversible eat8, well lighted, the
word of God prominent in all the work
of the school, in charge of a superinten
dent who has tact and common sense
stamped with tbe love of God: teachers
who are baptized with tbe spirit, scholars
who are studious, punctual, obedient
and reverent. In answer to the question
"what do you thick of prizes?" he said
as a rule he would not favor it, only oc
casionally as an inpetus to encourage
study. It is very desirable that the
teacher should do personal work outside
tbe school hours. After singing "To
Work, the afternoon session closed.
The conventioc was attended by a
large delegation ol workers throughout
The evening session opened with song
service and praise meeliiig conducted by
J. A. Bishops, of Moline.
Rev. C. L. Morgin eave the address of
the evening on "Bible Lands." He spoke
of his trip to Palestine two years ago,
and narrated his ei periences and pictured
the scenes presented to him as he
journeyed througa the lands of tbe
orient. He mentioned many places fa
miliar to the bible atudent.
This morning of! leers were elected for
the ensuing year:
President S D Cleland, Rock Island.

AT THE ALTAR,
The Only Difference.
Our advice to tte Argus crowd is to
never venture weit of tbe MississipDi
river and especially keep clear of Kan '
sas or Oklahoma. The cows there would
mistake them for .'rasa, and the lives of
each would be in danger. The cows
might accidentally discover their mistake
about the time they reached their heads.
Thanks awfully. The only difference
between tbe Arqtjs crowd and the Union
crowd in this respect is that with the
latter the cows wot Id naturally tackle the
heads first, and it i t not at all likely tbat
they would ever di scover their mistake.

wedding ceremony, as it witnessed the
marriage of their daughter. Miss Eittie
G. Battles to Wallace B. Spafford, of
Chicago. There were about fifty guests
present, the ceremony being performed
in the west parlor. Miss Bertha Sonnen
schmidt, of Moline, struck up Mendel

callas. fuchsias, smilax and a wealth of

Mr. and Mrs. Spafford Jwere the re
cipients of (an immense list of elegant
and useful gifts from; friends in Rock
Island. Rochester and Buffalo, N. Y.,
Chicago, and other places.
The bride was the picture of loveli
ness, attired in white satin and draped
point De Sprit with pink gloves and
flowers, and orange blossoms at her
throat. The groom's expression of
pride, as he gazed upon her was well
warranted. The bride's maid was dressed
in pale blue 'casbamere, embroidered in
silver. The bride was reared in Rock

here and in Moline, and is one of the
city s most accomplished and graceful
young ladies. Tbe groom is a former
Rock Islander, and is a train dis

Capt. W. II. Pierce, engineer at the
water works, met with a peculiar
accident this morning. He was prepar
ing to go off duty at 0 o'clock, and, as
is bis custom, climbed up on the regu
later in the engine room, and took hold
of the top of the wrist pin, or crank pin,
to see if it was cool, as it should be.
He stood with his left foot on the regu
lator ami raised his left hand up to feel
tbe wrist pin. As he did so he saw that
the wire of the inca ndescent lamp need
ed straightening. He took hold of it
when be received a shock and was
thrown to the floor. He was in
sensible for a few moments, but finally
recovered and called the fireman, Jack
KitaoD, who assisted him to his feet and
he was driven home. Dr. Ga'.t attended
him and found bis back and left hip
bruised, but tbat probably from tbe force
of tbe fall, and does not think there is
anything serious. Capt. Pierce thinks he
sustained an electric shock, but Secretary
Davis, of the light company, thinks the
lamp exploded by the pressure of bis
hand and shocked him, and not the cur
rent, as it had been shut off since 2
o'clock this morning.

a certain shoe manufacturer, stating that
they are selling shoes too cheap, and that
it is not just toward them (the manufac

cut in this manner. But the M. & K. are
cash buyers, make their own prices and
do not allow manufacturers to dictate to
them how or at what prices they are to
sell shoes. Perhaps tbe merchant who
forwarded the copy of the advertisement
would like to have this letter published.
