LESSONS ON THE FLOOD.
Rev. G. W. Gue Preaches on the
Subject of the Hoar.
Am lBterratlns Hern at the First
M. E. Chareh Iant Kvrnlnc.-.Ple-
tare of the mltaatlon.
Ia the First M . E. church last evening
Rev. G. W. Quo preached an interesting
sermon on the subject "Lessons from the
Flood-swept District in Pennsylvania.
Ilia text was from James, 4:14:
What ii yonr life?
For several days, said Mr. Oue, the
people of this country hare been almost
overwhelmed with astonishment at the
awful disaster at Johnstown and else
. t i . r .
wnere in i ennsyivania. in ever in our
history did any calamity ever visit us that
in so short a time swept away so many
homes and destroyed so many lives.
In 1755 Lisbon, Portugal, was wrecked
by an earthquake and swept by flames,
destroying between 30.000 and 40.000
lives. In China a few months ago the
banks of one of their rivers gave way and
flooded the ltnd, sweeping from the earth
more than one hundred thousand souls.
But these are so far removed from us by
time and space that they Nil to affect us
as they would if occurring in our day and
The burning of Chicago in 1870 was a
terrible disaster and shocked the civilized
world, calling out their greatest aympas
thies. That fire swept over 2,124 acres
of solid buildings, a territory four raiies
in 1 ;ngth and from one to one and a-third
miles in widtb; 17.450 buildings burned,
rendering homeless 98.800 people. It
was a financial loss of $196,000,000, bat
the loss of life was comparatively small
only 250 in all. Yet the sympathies of
the whole country were stirred in their
behalf. Contributions to the amount of
4,990,738 were contributed to the desti-.
tute. England sent to them 1500.000.
and Jim Fisk loaded and forwarded to
them a a whole train of supplies.
Two years ago we were made sick at
heart at the terrible railway disaster at
Chatsworth, III., where one hundred were
killed. But now we are confronted with
the loss of life and destruction of proper
ty that beggars all description. The
morning of the 31st or May, 1889, Johns
town, in Pennsylvania, and other
neighboring villages were full of hap
py. busy people, little dreaming that
before the sun went down they, with
their homes would tie gone. With
out warning the Hoods from the lake
above broke loose and engulfed the val
ley below. The destruction of property
can not be estimated, but the loss of life
will be from eight to ten thousand in
Johnstown alone equal to the loss of some
of the greatest battles in our late war.
Hundreds of people fragments of hap
py families are destitute of homes, and
every comfort and necessity of life.
Amid this sorrow and suffering it is re
freshing to read of the quick res po use on
the part of a sympathizing people in
forwarding money and provisions to the
sufferers. Undoubtedly the citizens of
Rock Island will cheerfully do their
part. Everyone should do something,
for In so doing they will have a better
opinion of themselves.
Of course there are heartless ones ev
erywhere who will do nothing, and will
criticise and misjudge the motives of
all others. Refusing to give, for fear
there will be too much raised, or fearing
that it will.be misappropriated. Such
selfishness is akin to the vandals who
strip and rob the dead human ghouls,
hyena-like feeding on human corpses.
In presenting this subject to you I
desire to draw from it some practical
lessons. The dead, the wounded, the
orphans, the widows and homeless ones
all join with my text in demanding;
"What is Your Life?" The anatomist,
with knife and skillful analysis, has
sought to And its secret hiding place, but
there is a barred gateway that he cans
not enter. No satisfactory definition
has ever been given as to what life is.
In complete swoon, when all muscHlar
action of the heart has stopped, and the
brain lies dormant, lire may still exist,
and rallying its scattered forces march
on to three score years and ten. But I
have a lamp, in the light of which I can
give an intelligent answer to this ques
tion, "What is Your Lire?" Our days
pass on with even pace, so that we sel
dom estimate what we are, what we have
been, and what we are to be. Oh,
tnat this evening, this solemn
and overwhelming calamity might come
to our ears, and give startling emphasis
to this question or the apostle, "What is
First Our life is a test, ir you buy
goods you soon want to find out whether
they are really worth what you paid for
them. Every new ship or boat must
make a trial trip. If you bring a man
into some important position, and there
is a crisis where his behavior will either
make or break you, you say now I
will have a chance to find out what be is.
Well, every man is on his trial trip, and
men, angles and devils are finding out
what is in you, what you are worth, and
wnai your weaknesses are. ISO man
liyeth unto himself," for every word you
peak, every action you perform has
a thousand echoes. Earth and heaven
and bell are gazing upon your behavior,
and you are passing the trial.
Second Our life is a conflict. If you
have never tried to control your pas
sions or appetite, if you have never tried
to subdue your temper, if you have never
tried to rouse yourself up to a better
manhood or womanhood, you do not
know what I mean; but if you have at
tempted to live a holy life, to be better
and do better, then you sympathize with
the Apostle raul when he represented
our lire on earth a war with the world, a
war with the flesh, a war with the devil.
but in addition to the struggle you have
witnln, you have a thousand outside bat
ties. Sometimes it baa been against
poverty, against physical distresses,
against bad social position, and an un
happy family name. With many of you
up to this point it has been a hand to
band fight, and so it will be to the end.
There ia no tent for peaceful encamp
ment but the grave. Life is a cod Set,
ao the Bible announces. Life is a con
flict, so your experience declares.
Thirdly Your life is a preparation. If
we are going en a long journey, we
want some time to get ready. God has
started us out on a journey that will
have no terminus, and once started we
never come back. If you have any
lamps to light, you had better light them
now, for when death once shuts the
door of the sepulchre the angel of
repentance never opens it again.
do iar as l can ten or your case
jour great need is to get rid of your
ains. I know of only one remedy the
blood of Jesus Christ clean seth from all
in. Fourthly, again your life is a great
uncertainty. Nobody steps out of life as
he expects to; though a man may have
been sick thirty years be is surprised at
last when he is called to go. We can
make no calculation about the future,
the world is full of temptations and peril.
We do not know bow our children will
turn out or what we ourselves may be
tempted to do.
Life is such a complete uncertainty
that I would not want to live an bour
without the grace of God, and I am sure
I would not want to die without it. 1
There never was a better illustration of
the uncertainty of life than the Johns
town disaster. Such an awful wreck of
youth and old age, bride and bridegroom,
the distinguished and the unknown. Oh,
men and women who know how to pray,
pray for those broken hearted ones,
without homes, bereft of all. but while
we pray lor them let us pray for our

a vapor that appeareth for a little season
and then vanisneth away.
Mha.li we Celebrate t
A very grave and momentous question
presents itself to us just now. It is one
that involves the interests or should in
volve the interests of every American
citizen. Already are aroused the restau
rant man and the small boy, and tbey will
net down. Not alone are these clamor
ous individuals; others catch the spirit of
the fathers and mothers of '76, and
come up as one man demanding that
Rock Island fittingly celebrate the inaug
uration of our national independence.
We see no good reason why we should
not this year spread the eagle and ventil
ate our patriotism by all joining heartily
in a grand and glorious Fourth of July
celebration. The time is growing short
and we mast be ap and doing. We must
take Old Father Time by the forelock-
he is bald behind. ' Let some influential
citizens take the lead In this matter, and
they will surely find an immense and en
thusiastic following one that will aston
ish the world. There seems to be a gen
eral uprising of the people on this sub
ject, and nothing short of a chance to
show their liberality and patriotism will
meet me general demand. Let us nut
our shoulders to the wheel and give this
coming Fourth of July a very warm re
ception. How shall we get about it?

how this company presents this difficult

Nobody expected a 75 cent show for 10.
20 and 80 cents, vet in comoarisnn with
many to which 75 cents admission i
charged, the Hamilton company deserve
at least crowded audiences to make up
for the low prices at which they are plays
ing. The general expression in regard tn
last evening's presentation of "Divorce"
was that it was good. Miss Hamilton
and Mr. McCiillum were fine and th
others quite fair. The specialties intro
duced were well up to the average. In
an amusement sense the company give a
