THE CLERKS' CAUSE.
Last Nicbt'sMee ting at (he Central
fehort lAddceKMts by llr, Taylor, Dr.
KinjOB, William Jackson and
The meeting in tbe interest of the 6:30
daily and Sunday closing movements held
at the Central Presbyterian church last
evening, was well attended considering
the night. C. E. Adams presided and
the meeting opened with prayer by Rev.
H. C. Marshall. Mr. Adams spoke of
tbe need of the 6.30 and Sunday rest re
form movement, and the intent of the
meeting to present thoughts, truths and
facts in demonstration of the righteous
ness and importance of the cause. He
then introduced the first speaker, Rev.
C. E. Tayior, of the First Baptist church,
who spoke particularly of the Sabbath
dessecration, resulting from non-observ-ance
of the Sunday rest movement, lie
held that ninetentbs of the business men
really desire a Sabbath of rest. There
are a few, however, who hold the whip
over the others, and through the obsti
nacy of these few the movement so gen
erally popular must prove a fail
ure. The nonobservance of the
Sabbath through a non-suspension
of business debases business men, relig
iously, spiritually and socially. Com
munities, he held, that are not Sabbath
observing, are apt soon to decy and pass
away. There was no obiect for keeping
open, except absolute selfishness; save
unqualified worship of the golden calf
He related his experiences as a clerk, and
tbe hardships and over-work he had suf
fered. He believed the observance not
only of Sunday, but of the shorter day
movement would prove a beneficial gain
to the merchants themselves.if universally
Dr. C. B. Kinyon real a piper in tbe
interest of the reform, from a physi
cians standpoint, and the sanitary reasons
why man should not be over-worked.
Man, he held, never rests; the functions
or nature never cease to operate and mn
should so live that no one of the orgnj
shoald over-tax any of the others. All
should share in the duties they perform
to the end that not one should wear out
before the others. To accomplish this,
oneshon'.d stop short of absolute fatigue.
He should change the variety of his work
before he i3 worn out entirely. For
health and life ske the hours of labor
should be lightened.
Willi am Jackson was the next speaker.
He related his experiences as a clerk in
early life, how as an apprentice to a
grocer in the city of Liverpool he bad
known what it was to be denied the op
portunities of evenings free from toil.
He spoke of his intense longing for rest
and how be had stood by the door of the
business house in which he was employed
and watched men with their dinner
buckets returning home at 6 p. in. and
how he longed to be one of them. Oh,
to be a mechanic, was the intense desire
of his life then, that he might have his
evenings to himself. Finally he ran away
and came to America to get rid of the
overworked life of a clerk. He clerked
for a while in Moline, only until he could
get work in a furniture factory on the
island where he toiled until he began the
study of law. He held that th3 even
ing and Sunday rest should be civjn the
cleik to improve his intellect and his
moral und religious qualities. It was
with us all individually to make the re
form a success or a failure. The remedy
for the over-burdened clerk is with the
people, who have a right to stop the em
ployer from over-working his fellows.
He assumed that public sentiment was for
early closing and Sunday rest; then let
public sentiment be felt.
Mr. Adams read a letter from a Daven
port clerk, and remarks were also made by
A. M. Blaksley. J. T. Noftsker. Rev. H.
C. Marshall and Max Silveretein, of Dav
enport. Resolutions were adopted as follows:
Whereas. Certain clothing, groceries,
boots and shoes aod other stores of Rock
Island have been compelling their clerks
to work six to eight hourB on Sunday,
and from 12 to 16 hours on week days,
therefore be it
Resolved, That we citizens of Rock
Island in a mass convention assembled,
demand of the merchants of Rock Island
that they close their places of business
on Sunday and that we most earnestly
request them to close their stores at 6:30
p. m., Saturdays excepted, and that we
will patronize only such stores as will
grant these humane measures.
Tbe following has beenieceived atTnE
We, the employes of Rock Island
arsenal, are in favor of 6:30
closing and Sunday rest move
ment, and will do all in our power
to assist the clerks to secure this humane
measure and just demands. Signed by
126 workingmen at arsenal.

Axel Hclstein, of Moline, who is a plow
fitter at D sere's, is congratulating him
self on having gotten rid of a trouble of
langcUnding. This trouble has been
the bain of his existence for more than
five years. In the sprint; of 1636 be went
to Sweden and consulted a number of
physicians, describing his symptoms, ex
actly, but could get no satisfaction fur
ther than t lat he had rheumatism of tbe
bowels. He suggested to thein that he
might have a tape worm, bat they hooted
at the idea. He was subject to a very
uncomfortable feeling in the side, and
the only relief was from eating. But the
more he ate the poorer he seemei to be
come in fiesb. The feeling in his side he
can now fully understand, as it was a
sort of crawling, grasping sensation, and
sometimes something actually seemed to
bite him. Now, the Dispatch says:
A year or so ago Dr. Vitzthum diag
nosed bis ci.se as one of gas in the bowels.
Recently he consulted Dr. C. Piper, of
this city, who gave him a quantity of oil
of male-fern divided into four doses. The
first dose relieved him. and after the sec
ond dose he felt no more pain. Sunday
he got rid of his tormentor which tbe
medicine had killed in his bowels. He
took it to Dr. Piper for examination, and
it has yesterday and today been viewed
by a few persons, including Dr.C Trues
dale, of Rock Island.
It is an animal about six inches long,
and ita a pretty well defined backbone.
Drs. Piper i.nd Truesdale have no doubt
of the verte'iiu-. It has much the ap
pearance of a lizard, except that it ap
pears to have twelve legs, and each leg is
in a web of teniacles or feelers. The
physicians w ho have seen It are unable to
eive it a nunc It is certainly a great
curiosity. It is too bad that it has been
impossible to preserve it intact, but it is
in sufficiently good shape to be identified
by some expert. It is to be tent to Chi
cago for such identification. Those
posted in natural history say that it can
not be a ver.ebrate if it has more than
four legs, but Dr. Piper is sure of the
legs. This, te says, is wht constitutes
it such a curiosity, having a backbone and
toore than four lee.
How did tbis animal or reptile get into
Mr. Holstein's bowels? Tbe only plaus
ible theory se;ois to be that he swallowed
the ovum or egg. To what size the ani
ma! might have crown outsi le of man's
bowels is of ourse uncertain. It might
have been niu-h larger.

A large sized citizen, having much tbe
appearance of a cowboy and giving his
nameas Harry Fox.of Cordova, staggered
into police beadquartrs last evening about
6 ) 'clock and attempted to obtain of Officer
Sexton, who was alone in the station,
some information as to directions, but be
was so abusive in bis manner and address
that Sexton determined to lock him up.
He therefore locked the doir of the
station, which act tbe Foxy individual
took as a challenge, and a
rough-and-tumble fight between
the (officer and his visitor ensued,
which resulted in the dandy little copper
getting bis man down and gagging him.
Street Superintendent Harris, who whs
on the outside heard the racket within,
and attempted to go to the officer's assis

forced to enter through a window and
the ravenous citizen was safely lod ged in

fined f 5 and costs by Magistrate Wivill.
He paid the fine and left the station with
