The Peoria Tran$cript, which has Ix'en
ttemptioK the expose of Rev. O.W. Que.
of this city, of plagiarism in one of his
sermons recently delivered in that city, as
stated in the Abgus of yesterday, con
tained the following further allusion to
the matter in its isiue of yesterday morn
ing, and thus it will probably rest:
By publishing the facts about the ex
citement created by the Rev. (.rue's ser
mons yesterday, the Trantcrijit spoiled a
nicely laid plan to bring the Itev. Oue to
ridicule. Something oyer two weeks a?o
the Rev. Gue came down here from Rock
Island to visit his old friends. Fie had
formerly been pastor of the First Metho
dist chuich here, and out of courtesy he
was asked to occupy his former pulpit.
He did so and preached two excellent
sermons which received much favorable
As near as can be learned at present a
lady was the first to discover that the ser
mons were "cribbed." The pastors are
not disposed to talk much about it, at
least those who are in the city, and
what information is gained has to be
picked up in shreads and pasted together.
The story goes that one of the pastors
asked a lady bow she liked the Rev. Gue's
sermons. She replied that they were very
good, but she bad read them a few weeks
before. Furthermore, she did not think
the Rev. Gue could improve on Moody
This started the ball rolling and the
aforesaid pastor immediately set about to
expose the Rev. Gue. He secured the co
operation of a newspaper advertising so
licitor and these twain were collaborating
a complete expose which was to have been
published some dav this week had the
Trameript not published the story a day
too soon. They had secured the original
sermon and intended publishing it, thus
heaping contumely on Rev. Gue.
It is understood that Rev. Gue was
communicated with, and asked if it was
true that he did deliver one of Moody's
sermons. In reply he said he did, and he
pushed a velvet covered knife into his
accusers when he added: "It would be a
good thing for some more of the pastors
and their congregations if they would oc
casionally deliver a good sermon, even if
they had to borrow it."
It is the very general opinion here that
jealousy on the part of one or more min
isters here prompted the expose of the
Rev. Gue, but his prompt admission that
he borrowed the sermon and his sarcastic
reason for so doing has robbed their ac
tion of all glory, if there be glory in such

What is a cold in the beadT Medical
authorities say it is due to uneven cloth
ing of the body, rapid cooling when in a
perspiration, etc. The important point
is, that a cold in the head is an inflamma
tion of the linine membrane of the cos,
which, when unchecked, is certain to pro
duce a catarrhal condition for catarrh i3
essentially a "cold" which nature is no
loncer able to "resolve" or throw off.
Ely's Cream Balm has proved its super
iority, and sufferers should resort o it
before that common ailment becomes
seated and ends in obstinate catarrh.
