We have decided to go out of the Dry Qoods business and to close
out our entire stock of Dry Qoods and Notions, rot excepting any
thing in the Btore. This unexpected announcement is due to a change
in the business plans of the firm, and although it may oppear un
reasonable to do so after being here so short a time, still we feel justi
fied in making the change. We shall commence our sale on Wednes
day morning. We remain closed all day tomorrow to arrange pur
tore and mark goods over. Everything will be marked down leaving
(tie old marks on the tickets to show what reduction is made. We
want to close our stock out at once and if prices will do it the goods
will go. As is well known our stock is all new and it will not be like
closing out an old atoek. This will give the people of Davenport and
vicinity a chance to buy gooda aa they have never done before and
there is no humbug about. We mean a gTeat slaughter of new stock.

Intet eating Memorial Services at

The Military Organizations la Atte

Trie Patrlatlem A Beantlful a
Yesterday was Memorial Sabbath at
the Central Presbyterian church. The
pasto-. Rev. A. B. Melrum, had fittingly
designated it as such, it being the Sunday
next before Memorial day and had in
vited Buford post 243, Q. A. R., Beards
ley campt No. 13, Sons of Veterans, and
the Rxlman Rifles to participate. All
these organizations were present in
bodiei. The church was prettily and
patriotically decorated with flowers and
plants, while about the pulpit the na
tional colors were interwoven with vines.
On either side were the beautiful silk
banners of the army post and Sons of
The singing was especially adapted to
the occasion and was finely rendered by
the well trained choir of the church with
pipe c rgan and cornet accompaniment,
and ii. eluded among other
the processional "Onward Christian Sol
diers," and the national anthem "Amer
lea," the entire congregation, which com
fortably filled the large church, joining in
the latter inspiring hymn. Rev. Wm.
McPb leters, who is a member of Buford
post, conducted the services and offered
a fervent and patriotic prayer.
The sermon was preached by the pas
tor, Mr. Meldrum, and the discourse was
one of the ablest in thought and most
thrilling in patriotic idea that the talented
and eloquent preacher has ever delivered
in Rock Island. The text was taken
froml Kings, 11:21-22:
Then Pharoah said unto blm; But what ha
thou Iv ted with me that behold thou seekest to
go to thine own country; and be answered,
nothing now be it, let me go iu any wise.
Thih conversation, said the preacher,
took place between Pharaoh, king of
Egypt, and Hadad, the Edomite. Many
years before Edom had been grievously
defeat ?d by David, and Joab, the captain
of the boat, had returned to complete
the conquest. With unsparing severity
he h:wi slain every man capable of bear
ing aims and crushed the reigning family.
Hadad, who was very young and of the
seed royal, was carried off by some faith
ful servants, and after wardering from
place to place, took refuge in Egypt,
which was t. en and afterward an asylum
for fugitives. There he was hospitably
received and rose high in favor, and in
course of time entered the royal family.
The sister of Pharaoh's queen became
his wile, his son was formally adopted
into the household, among Pharaoh's
own children, and Hadad appeared
bound to his new home by lies not to be
broker.. But news of an important
change reached him. David and Joab
were dead, and the reins of Jewish rule
were in weaker hands. The love of his
old home awoke in Hadad's heart, and
be came to Pharaoh with the request that
he might be allowed to leave.
"I do not," said Sir. Meldrum, ' 'intend
to deal with this narrative and its bear
ings on the future Egypt or of Hadad.
The mrrative leaves this in silence and
fixes our thoughts on this one feature of
Hadad's nature his love of country. It
was the love of his country that was the
ruling feeling in Hadad's wish to return
to Edom. Had it been revenge or ambi
tion, be could have named it to Pharaoh
and he would have been fully understood,
but it is a feeling he cannot explain. It
is an old Edomite anticipation of the
'I km w not what charm it is which leads us
captive in the love of Dative land.
It wil. not let us forget.'
With all these means to attract aad
hold Hadad to Egypt the royal favor, the
good of the land, the ties of friendship
and family, Edom, notwithstanding,
with its rocks and scarcity of pas
tures, had a power that would not let
him ftay. This same feeling, this
love of country, planted as it is in the
human heart for a divine purpose, is one
not on y
DEEP IN OUR NATURE,
but is acknowledged and approved in the
bible, which inculcates love of country.
The speaker here cited many instances in
substantiation of the patriotic teachings
of scripture. "Tell me," said he, "where
there is anywhere so intense a patriotic
cry as that of the Apostle Paul: 'I could
wish '.hat myself were accused from
Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen, ac
cording to my flesh I and what shall we
say of Paul's master and ours? Where
did patriotism ever exhibit a nobler burst
of sonow than when the Son of man on
Mount Olivet looked out on all the world
as he wept over Jerusalem? "Oh! Jeru
salem, Jerusalem. How often would I
have gathered thee as a ben gatherelh her
brood under wings, but ye would not."
Wbosi; patriotism ever endured when His
did? He had but twelve offices to be
stow, but they were the highest out of
heaven, and these he bestowed on twelve
of hie countrymen. He bad only one
gift tc impart the gift of eternal life
and this he directed to be offered to his
own country, first beginning at Jerusa
lem." Nei t to religion there is probably noth
ing in human nature which has called out
such a heroic spirit of martyrdom, or
such long, persistent, self-sacriflcing en
deavo aa love of country. The grandest
part of the history of nations has been the
period when they have risen for indepen
dence and freedom against attempt to
crush out their liberty or their separate
life a id when they have left names of
leaden which make the hearts of men
thrill whenever they are beard. It would
be a p oor Christianity, because not a true
humanity would disregard this. There
may te vanities and unreasonable jeal
ousies, prolonged and hurtful irritations,
which spring from these troubles, but in
the a .niggle Itself we see a true prin
ciple at work. Were the life of a
nation destroyed, or hindered of its own
prope: development, every individual for
long iienerationa would suiter thereby.
There la an heirloom of stimulus and
patriotic enthusiasm to a whole race in
the heroic acta of those who have be
queatlied them a name and earned for
them a place among the nations of the
In i dl agea to suffer, to die for one'
country has been regarded aa a virtue and
honor worthy of all the glory that poets,
painters and historians could throw
around the deed. There ia not a written
language on the globe in which such acts
are not preserved and celebrated as its
choicest treasures. "It is an honor to
die for the country," is a sentiment older
than Christianity itself a sentiment that
was said and sung among the masses who
spoke the great Grecian tongue when it
was still young, ere its first epic was put
into verse. It throbbed in the hearts of
rude people as they built walls or stood
around the gateways of their small
nationalities against the foe. How many
thousand star acts of patriotism in differ
ent countries have been lighted at the
fire, kindled by Leonidis and his Spartans
at Tbermopyleel And what adds to the
lustre of that act was the fact that these
men went to there death to produce an
example. It was not for their practical
value as a defence that they sold their
lives, but to do a deed that should live in
the longest memories of the Grecian na
tion, that should burn a vestal flame on
the altar of patriotism forever.
Nor : do we need to go beyond the
limits of American history to find in
HEROIC BELF SACRIFICE
for the country. One of the most illus
trious acts of this genius recorded in any
history was perporraed by half a dozen
young American naval officers before
Algiers, whose bones lie there to this day,
and whose deliberate purpose was to sink
the flag of their country and themselves
with it in the slime of the sea's floor
rather than eee it defiled in the hands of
uncircumcised infidels. In Washington
today may be seen the monument erected
to these young American Spartans, set
ting forth a nation's appreciated of the
spirit that prompted their act of self im
molation. The whole history of the re
public is illustrated with acts of heroic
self -sacrifice, acts of the Spartan type,
on the part not only of men, but women
also who counted, not their lives dear
unto them that they might perpetuate the
life or defend the sacred honor the Lord
God had given to them and who Laa not
read with a thrill of enthusiastic admira
tion of that wonderful exploit during the
late civil war, called in the annals of the
period, "Zagourmie's Ride to Death" a
vivid recital of which illustrious event
was here recited by the preacher.
We are sadly deficient in appreciation
of the services rendered by those whose
graves we are this week to visit and
CROWN WITH GARLANDS OF HONOR,
f we imagine that that is the only thing
we can do in acknowledgment of the ob
ligation we are undtr to them. There is
something far more binding upon us than
this or any similar act of fidelity.
Though year after year we strew their
graves with flowers, though . we carve
their names in the imperishable stone,
though immortal words embalm their
di eds, all will be hollow, heartless, in
sufficient unless aye tike up their fallen
mantle to wear it sacredly till we go to
tiie way of all flesh. These men went
forth to death prepared to die for the
great idea of American nationality. It
was this that inspired them to sacrifice
and transform them from peaceful citis
zens into patriotic heroes. It was to
save their flag from dishonor and their
country from destruction that they gave
their lives. And their ashes tell us that
if the land and laws were worthy of
them, that brave men should die for their
keeping they are at least worthy that
now pure men and unselfish men should
live in a grand fidelity to the idea of a
true democracy. They tell us that
every popular disregard of political
duty and prevailing political cor
ruption can weaken the government
and destroy the liberties of this
American republic. They tell us what
American nationality and American lib
erty cost and they entreat all who love
America solemnly to guard against the
encroachment of any class, native-born
or foreign-born, secular or religious,
who, in their false, wild and anarchistic
notions of liberty, would crush and de
stroy these institutions which now so
justly entitle this nation to be called the
"land of the free and the home of the
WHERE TRUE PATRIOTISM PREVAILS
the loftiest national ideal will be cher
ished. The true lover of his country not
only looks back with pride to those
achievements which cast a lustre upon
his nation's bistoiy, but he looks forward
and with earnest conscientiousness sets
himself to discharge the duties and re
sponsibilities of citizenship. He pro
foundly realizes that as an heir of the
past, he holds what he has in trust for
generations that are to come. However
humble and inconspicuous the position be
occupies in the nation, he feels that he
is an essential part of the great common
wealth and that be has something to do
with the making of a history that by the
generations to come shall be read with
pride or with shame. Let no citizen
claim the name of patriot who does not
cherish a proper sense of his individual
importance as a ' 'partner of the repub
lic," and whose very cry is that of
"Rights!" "Rights!" never that of "Du
ty!" "Duty." Such a man is the embod
iment of seinsnnesa a vulgar anarcnist
the worst enemy of the nation.
Patriotism does not consist merely in
eulogizing the dead, but also in manfully
entering upon the duties which devolve
upon us as men and as citizens. The pri
vate character of the individual citizen
affects the character of the nation as a
whole in the judgment of the world.
One of the dangers which threatens this
land arises from false and spurious ideas
of liberty. Many imagine that this is a
land where every man has rights which
be may demand and where nobody has
duties which must be discharged. The
description "every man did that which
was right in his own eyes," is a descrip
tion not of heroic freedom, but of hide
ous anarchy. Freedom is the correlative
of order; it is the function of righteous
ness. Its home, like that of law, is in
the bosom of God Almighty; its voice the
harmony of the world. Liberty is not
liberty to do wrong unchecked:
"He is a free man whom the truth makes free.
And all are slaves beaide."
Liberty means the right to do as one
pleases only when he pleases to do what
ia right. The only liberty worthy the
name ia that which develops a people's
energy, intellect and virtue. Progress,
the growth of power, is the end and boon
of liberty, and without this, a people may
have the name, but want the substance
and the spirit of freedom. Rights and
duties are indissolubly joined together.
He ia the best and truest patriot who
has most deeply learned the truth that
"RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTETH A NATION
and sin ia a shame to any people. The
bible, when read by the light of the truth
it atill the best statesman's manual. Here
is taught that progress is the inevitable
law of human life. It teaches that it is
a deadly error to suppose that we are
aent into this world only to preserve and
not to improve it. It teaches the duty of
man to honor man aa man, and to regard
all men from the highest to the lowest aa
absolutely equal before the bar of jus
tice. It teaebea that the true glory of a
nation lies not in tbe splendid munitions
of war, but in the dissemination of hon
orable happiness and ia the encourage
ment of righteousness and the suppres
sion of vice. It teaches that the true
wealth of a nation is not in gold and
silver but in the souls of strong, content
ed, temperate, industrious and self-respecting
men. It teaches that the true
freedom of a nation lies not in unrestrict
ed facilities for vice and crime, but in the
bonds of a moral, obedience, dearly
cherished by the good. It teaches that
a people to deserve respect must lay
down the maxim as tbe foundation of its
own strength, and of iu intercourse with
other nations that justice reverence for
right shall take rank of its interests, and
that the nation which possesses not this
is branded with an infamy which oceans
of blood cannot wash away.
The position of the American citizen
ia preeminent in responsibility. The title
of citizen ia invested with great import
ance under every government, but here
it rises to a height of estimation which
was ever known before. Every man who
wears that title and has intelligence
enough to understand its relations, should
give himself thoughtfully and earnestly
to the study of his lights and duties in
order that he may perform his share of
the vast work which the nation is bound-r
to accomplish, not only for itself but for
the world. He should remember that
here he is a "sovereign amongst sover
eigns," since there is no human power
above the people. He should reverence
the laws because tbey are the appointed
instruments of tbe government which the
people have establiched. He should
venerate the constitution aa the supreme
law of the land which binds together all
parts of the mighty whole, lie should
do open homage to religion withoat
which neither tbe laws nor the constitu
tion can have any practical efficiency .
And be should take Christianity into bis
heart as tbe only hope of hia personal
happiness. He should
GUARD THE UNION
with the utmost vigilance and frown
upon every attempt to weaken that only
foundation of honest patriotism. He
should faithfully fulfill the various rela
tions of his business and of his domestic
and social life, and inculcate tbe same
cause by consistent obligation upon all
around him. And thus will he be an ex
ample of the civic character demanded
by the true theory of this noble republic
and do his part towards the grand result
which shall not only convince the nations
in due time of its excellence and stabil
ity, but raise the title of American citi
zenship, under the favor of Divine Prov
idence, to the loftiest rank of universal
