LECLAIRE S CHURCH CASE.

taian It rattr, ttrv. Mr. rfw,
The A noun recently published an ac
count of a sermon preached in the Pres
bjterian church of LeClaire by Ilev.
Monroe Drew, the young thcotogian who
filling that pulpit while perfecting him
self for the ministry a sermon which
roused the people of that place to re
monsfraces. resolutions and indignation
meetings. The following resolutions
reflecting another phase of the case have
been sent to the Davenport 7Vvyf
. Gazette for publication by the committee
of the church congregation:
Wiikrkas, Certain members of sister
churches and some of our citizens in IiC
Cl aire have taken exception to a xrtion
of the sermon preached by IJ.'V. Drew
of the Prehbytt rmn church on July Tlh.
Viikkkh. S-.id paitics drew upx
tition. ileman lin; of him an apology,
which was pronhaed. arnl has since bi-cn
given as per promise; and,
WilKUKAS, Said parlies (not content
with what reparation lay in his power)
have scatter d far and wide the mistake

positu n as sin li for the first time in his
life, anil not only scattering, but misrep
resentini; ( we ill not use sironsjer terms)
plain statements; therefore, be it
litiutlml. That we, as a chureh, unani
mously denounce their action as ernel,
unjust and unworthy the name of citizen
7oWvi. That we, as a chureh, refuse
to accede to their reipiest. viz: "to at
once discharge the said Drew trom the
pastorale of that church."
llitiitlrnl. That we, as a church, do
stand hy our pnstor and uive him our
most hearty aid and support, believing
him to be a devoted, earnest christian
laborer, and one who will reap in the fu
ture a rich reward for his l.il.i.r.
Davenort defeated KvnnsvilV !t to 7
in an interesting thirteen inning Rime
across the rivrr yesterday and one char
acterized hy many pretty features, such
as six double Us on the part of the
Davenports, sixteen out of nineteen
chances accepted by Allen in Davenport's
short field brilliant centre field play by
Mc.Bride, of the Davenports, heavy hat
tintr by Kappcl and Strothers of the Dav
d ports, and Hemp, of Kvansville. Pen
der and Harrington, and La Tom lie and
Calhoun were the resective batteries.
It is understood that Davenport has re
ceived a good offer for its crack battery,
Rhines and Harrington, and contemplates
accepting it. It is to he hoped these
players will be kept until the season
clows at least, as there is no Iwtlcr
pitcher nod catcher outside of the Nation
al league and Aniciiran association .
Davenport has reason to be proud of
its team. It is composed of the most
geutlemenly and best appearing players
in the league.
, Nat Hudson, the former Rock Island
pitcher, has been traded by St. Louis to
Louisville for a pitcher named Tom K-im-sey
The HI reel Corner Ornament.
"Is there anything feminine that cor
responds to the masculine loafer.'- asks
the Davenport Tom. "The pleasant
days are sure to bring out the species in
force. They lounge about the streets,
sunning themselves in public places; they
bar the passages to doors, collect on street
corners and force the unfortunate women
who pass their w ay to run the gauntlet of
audible criticism and off hand jokes that
ia anything hut agreeable. There they
seem to stand, all strung along the curb
stone, or door steps, balancing on an iron
railing, occupying every available foot, J
smoking, commenting, swearing, makinc
coarse jests and apparently trying to sue
how nefr they can ejec t tobnrco ru
the women who puss without actually
hilling them. Women may have a weak
ness for crowding about attractive shop
windows, and some of them a mania for
running to fires, or getting in the way
otherwise, hHt they have never yet suc
ceeded in making of themselves such a
public nuisance as this class of men."

It makks the average newspaper pub
lisher dizzy to contemplate the following
figures, even if they do go to prove
that advertising pays. "A single pni;e

Three rebellions, obstinate, though
Woodless, occur in '.he stomach of the
dyspeptic who partakes of food thrice a
day. The digestive organ refuses on each
occasion to perform the duty assigned to
it by nature, and trouble ensues. How

pleasant regulator, ta-conie easy, and its
forerunner, appetite, also improve.

duced by chronic dyspepsia, will disap

ami constipation and biliousness, its
usual attendants, also take their leave.
Not only will the system actju ire strength,
but also substance by a more perfect as
