when the state 1. M. C. A. convention
met in mock island a couple or years
ago, one of the most earnest and enthu
siastic workers that came to Rock Island
as a delegate was Henry P. Day, of Peo
ria. Incredible as it may seem, Mr
unj naa formerly been a newspaper man
and be demonstrated fully bis capabilities
in that line by the excellent reports he
furnished the Argus from day to day of
the proceedings, which in fact were ac
cepted as the best and most reliable pub
liahed. Mr. Day was fond of the drudg
ery of reportorial work, but the more
he went into tbe varied experiences of
newspaperdom tbe more he imagined that
he was drifting away from bis mission to
save souls. So be abandoned active
journalism and went into the insurance
business, a rather peculiar change indeed.
when prompted by tbe motive stated, but
Day thought be was on the right track
and it was thus that he came to Rock
Island. But Day has had sufficient exper
lance to realize bis mistake. He has
found that there is no broader field for
usefulness and influence than that afford
ed by tbe press, and with a clear
conscience, firm conviction and renewed
determination be has returned to bis first
love. We will let tbe Trantcript tell the
rest, only adding that than Mr.
Day mere is not a brighter, more active
reporter in tbe state of Illinois:
- Like the prodigal aon who baa deserted
the mansion of bia father. Henry P. Day
naa come d&ck 10 journalism, and baa
once more decided to identify himself
with local newspaper wotk in Peoria,
Lake the good sensible soul that he is;
uenry has come to tbe very proper con
clusion that the pen is mightier than the
- pulpit, the aword, tbe broadaxe or the
-Oatling gun. He bas learned that in no
position can a man serve the Lord as well
and rescue as many souls from the fires
of eternal fury as pushing a pencil on
a newspaper in a big city. Tbe
lair of tbe festive and much sought for
item is not always in the gay drawing
room amidst tbe pampered stars of so
ciety, but on tbe contrary, is as often in
the hovel, surrounded by filth and
nurtured by ignorance. In the daily
rounds ot a reporter, it be be a sincere
and soulful Christian, like the good
Brother Day, he can every now and then
yank a brand from the fire as easily as
picking potatoe bugs in a garden patch.
Day's mission upon earth is to elevate
and purify tbe morals of mankind, and
journalism is his only field. For a time
he was lead to believe that the pulpit was
his calling, but he has since learned that
where one man goes to church a dozen
read the newspapers. Therefore in
stead of becoming a minister, securing an
appointment as missionary to theaoti
podean cannibals, perhaps thera to he
eaten at a political barbecue, he has
decided to return to Peoria, buckle on the
armor of a reporter, and with a pencil for
bis lance, assault the armies of sin until
Ifbe evil doer shall shake in his boots and
ARE YOU RECORDED?

Have the census enumerators assigned
to Rock Island completed their work?
If they have, baa anyone been omitted?
Have you and your family been recorded?
If not bunt up your enumerator and see
that this is attended to. The Akuus
speaks of this because it has learned of
several citizens within the past few days
who have been inquiring for the enumer
ators and have stated that none had
called at tbeir bouses. There should be
no carelessness or neglect about this natt
ier. Not a soul should be omitted . It
is not only the right and piivilege of
everyone to be enlisted among citi
zens of the republic, but as a metier of
justice to Rock Island it should have its en
lire population recorded. Rw k Island has
not taken in any suburbs such as many
cities have for the mere purpose of swell
ing its population just before the census
enumerators made their rounds. Rock
Island wants only what it is entitled to,
and nothing more. But the city wants
all that belongs to it.
If for any reason tbe census enumera
tor has omitted you. investigate the mat
ter at once. This is a duty you owe to
your country, to your city and to your
self. .'BMty KBtiainern.

Fire insurance, which no good business
