THE ALUMNI REUNION.
Entertaining Assembly at the
The Exerrlnen and Thwe Who Far.
tlrlpated In Them Prof. Parih'a
Address A Large Attendance.
Dear classmates once aaln we meet.
Within these school honae hall;
And each familiar face we greet.
Our old school day recall.
Cuoira Those old school days, so dear,
In life's spring time;
Let memory linger o'er the past.
O'er the days of "Auld Lang Syne."
Come, M's enjoy the passing honrs,
Kor soon aaln we part ;
Let pleasure's brightest boon be ours.
Let joy fill every heart.
Soon others 'neath this roof will meet
Old faces disappear;
These walks are pressed by other feet.
In each sncceeiiiiiK year.
, Then when our task on earth is o'er.
In that great school beyond;
Wltbl. smit.s new, we'll there pnnue.
Our school work here began.
This was tbe beautiful and very appro
priate class song which was rendered to
the tune of "Auld Lang Syne" by the
Rock Island High School Alumni asso
ciation at the close of the first part of the
programme of the annual reunion in the
High school building last evening. The
seating capacity was unequal to the de
mand on thin ocsasian. Tbe graduates
of each jear dating back to 1875 were in
attendance as well as a large represents'
tion of the teachers in the Rock Island
schools, the board of education and a
number of the city pastors. Little knots
of pioneer graduates were to be seen and
heard relating experiences of their school
days, questioning the whereabouts and
circumstances of many of the absent
ones. Inquiries revealed the fact that
about twelve had passed beyond, over
sixty are scattered throughout the union,
one in Canada and the remainder of the
223 are living within calling distance of
President Fred C. Denkmann called tbe
alumni to order at 8:30 o'clock. The
first part of the programme opened with
a piano solo by Miss Lulu Carleton. The
' piece was well chosen and beautifully
rendered. President Denkmann fol
lowed with a short address of welcome
He spoke of the early organization of the
alumni, it purpose and its growth, its
disintegration and reorganization under
the leadership of Mr. Hatch. Mr. Denk
mann reminded the graduates of their
loyalty to their alma mater and that its
interests should ever be uppermost in
THE NEW CLASS
was presented to the president by Mr,
. B. McKown and received tbe
hearty congratulation and welcome into
the Alumni association with a few
Well chosen and suitable remarks
buss jumnie itanson sang "liia me
Good Bye and Go," which was highly ap
predated. Mr. Paul Hamilton followed
with an essay on "Reminiscences."
School life brings common experiences,
pleasures unalloyed, object lessons car
ried in reality on the play ground. The
speaker called to mind the various idio
syncracies of peculiar characters. The
bright sayings and youthful pranks in
school and out, once more passed in re
view before the mind of the speaker.
The countenances of many of the gradu
ates showed wideness of the truth of bis
remarks and as he brought out the weak
nesses of human nature in the lives of the
graduates, many were compelled to ad
mit, 'tis sad, but true. This was fol
lowed by a piano duet by the Misses Long
and Gest, which was well received.
' PROK. PAHISn'8 ADDRESS.
Prof. L. W. Parish, of Independence,
Iowa, was then introduced and delivered
the chief address. It was great
pleasure for him to return to his old field
of labor and that after an absence of ten
years be came back to greet old friends
and make new ones. His subject was
"The High School anil the Citizen."
What should be the relation of tbe high
school with the citizen? Philosophy
taught the eternal relation of everything
and there must be a relation between the
high school and the citizen. The terms
are common to each other. Tbe true aim
of the high school is the dcyelopment of
tbe citizen. Sad facts exist that there is
only about twenty-five percent of our
scholars ever graduate from the high
school, nigh school enables the youth
to give impetus to latent talents. Can a
boy be intellectually developed and ready
to cope with the demands of the physical
moral, intellectual and business world
when he leaves the grammar school? The.
high school matures tbe mintjfgfves sym
metry to character bujlg, tempers the
business abilities ary fits him also for a
domestic happinegj. The arena of the
world's action n every direction presents
--SO-Inany advantages to the well developed
and cultured mind. The coordination of
mind and body puts the person on an ins
telligent and perfect basis. Thought get
ting and thought expressing should go
hand in hand. He plead for practical ed
ucation. In closing he paid a high com
pliment to tbe person and work of Prin
cipal W. II. Hatch and his deep regret at
learning that he bas severed his connec
tion with our high school. The speaker
expressed the hope that just support be
given the new principal of the school.
The next item on the programme was
a Tocal solo by Miss Lucy Coyne, "On
the Heights." During one of the inter
missions a committee on nominations was
appointed and at this point presented
their report of
OFEICER8 FOR THE NEXT TEAR:

lor, class of '75; Miss Lizzie Denkmann,
class of "75: Miss E. B. Kries, class of
'87; Miss Lizzie Eemble. class of '87;
Miss Kitty Gest, class of '89.
The report was was received and
adopted and the nominees elected.
was offered and adopted unanimously
by a rising vote:
Whereas, We have learned with deep
regret that the High school is called upon
to -part with Its principal, Mr. W. XI,
Resolved, That we place on record our
high appreciation of tbe services of Mr.
Hatch in behalf of a higher scholarship
and better facilities for work in this
High school, and that we extend to Him
oar best wishes for his future work&nd
for the welfare of himself and family.
One of the best features of the evening
was tbe singing by tbe alumni of the
written for tbe occasion by two of tbe
graduates and set to the tunes of "Auld
Lang Syne" and "America, the first of
which is given at the beginning of this
account, and the other is appended:
Car Alma Mater dear.
We come together here.
With pleasnre true ;
Let one and all unite.

May Heaven our ranks inspire.
With peace and light.

Mc Michael, of tbe United Presbyterian
church, tbe re-union formally closed.

time, and a social hour was spent. Many

When tbe liver is indolent, as it must
necessarily be when it fails to secrete the
bile in sufficient quantities to meet the
requirements of digestion and evacuation.
it should he set at work with Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters. The healthful stirau

parable alterative, speedily evinces itself
in a departure of tbe uncomfortable sen

headache consequent upon inactivity of
the liver and the diversion of the bile
from its proper channel. Irregularity of

Prevention of disease is both rational
and scientific. If one knows the causes
of most diseases and can remove that
cause, the diseases must disappear. Prof.
Wm. II. Thompson, of the University of
the city of New York, says: "More
adults are carried off in this country by
chronic kidney disease than by any other
one malady except consumption. The
majority per cent or an diseases are
caueed by unsuspected kidney poisoned
blood. Tbe late Dr. Dio Lewis, in speak
ing of Warner's Safe Care, said over his
signature: "If I found myself tbe victim
of a serious kidney trouble, I would use

Tbe usual treatment of catarrh is very

a trustworthy medical writer says:

Farther on the Mnbjeet, and Tells
About the Boric Inland Barber's In
terpretation of His Affection.
In his "Sharps and Flats" column of
yesterday's Chicago Daily Nev, '"Gene"
Field bas tbe following concerning Mr.
3. T. Cable's bibliomania and the Rock
Island barber's interpretation of tbe
A number of weeks ago we printed an
interesting article upon tbe subject of
bibliomania and bibliomaniacs. In tbe
course of this article we spoke at length
of the curious case of Mr. Ben T. Cable,
of itock Island, wno. having secured
ileorge Washington's own copy of the
tirst American edition of Burns poems
(.1788) was after the other only known
i opy ot the same edition, Intending to
l uy it at any price and to destroy it in
order to make his Washington copy a
unique.' We cited this instance to illus
trate a certain phase of hookmania, and
rt the time all our local bibliomaniacs en
thusiastically approved both our remarks
ind the particular mauiacal phase which
I ispired them. It appears, however, that
Mr. Cable bas suffered a good deal by
tbat publication, and he came to Chicago
jesterday fully determined not to return
ti Rock Island "until the unpleasantness
"When the Daily A"?ucontaining that
story reached our town," said Mr. Cable,
''every copy to be bad was snapped tip by

one of my friends, Adair Pleasants, hap
pened to be shaving in at one of the city
birher shops, and the barber (a loqua
cious fellow, of course,) remarked: "Too
b id about Mr. Cable, ain't it?"
" 'What's wrong with Cable?' asked
" 'Why, hain't you beerd about it?'
says the barber. 'He's gone crazy; there
wuz a piece in the Chicago papers about
him, and it said tbat he wuz a bible-.
" 'A what?' asked Mr. Pleasants.
" 'A bible-maniac, repeated the bar
ber. 'That means a maniac as has got so

"Pleasants came right to me with this
conversation," said Mr. Cable, "and we
bo'.h laughed at it as a good joke. But
tbi.t fool barber kept right on talking to
everybody that came into his shop, and
it wasn't long before a great many of my
old acquaintances began to act very
str-ingely toward me. Folks whom I
hail known from childhood would meet
me on the street and regard me with a
curious stare; they'd act as if they were
afriid of me and I couldn't help noticing
tbat their voices sort of quavered when
they asked me how I was feeling today.
I really began to get alarmed when the
litt e children fell victims to tbe popular
del ision and ran shrieking away when
ever I came down the street and hap
peced upon them in the midst of their
marbles and other plays.
"It was useless," continued Mr. Ca
ble with a weaiy sigh, "it was useless for
me to say that I was not crazy, for that's
wbt insane people always say in fact,
a sturdy denial of insanity is regarded as
a ptima-facie evidence that the patient is
off li is base. So I was helpless Know
ing tbat be was an intimate friend, peo
ple began to advise Mr. Pleasants 1o
have me taken away to some quiet re
trea'. where repose and medical treatment
would restore me. Keepers of 'homes,'
'institutions,' 'private asylums,' 'refuges'
and all that sort of thing began sending
circulars oh, the torture became tin
bearable, and I baye fled. 1 am going to
.New lork, the Mecca of maniacs; I
shal. gather my autograph and my large
papi r first editions around me, and no
ribald misrepresentations of my malady
shall interrupt our sweet eommunion."
Dr. William F. Poole expressed deep
interest in this curious case; he said that
a similar misapprehension had undoubt
edly led to the famous witchcraft agita
tion in New England two centuries ago.
Other local bibliomaniacs were property
excited by Mr. Cable's recital, and at one
time it looked as if a fund would he

ewitrhed off upon tbe subject of the large
