THE FLOWERY FESTIVAL.
Easter and its Observances in Rock
InipoMins rvioes at Titnitv, at the
Hrt KaptUt and Other t hnree
.. treat Kvent.
Easter, the happiest, brightest festival
in the Christian year was celebrated with
imposing services in ail the churches in
Rock Island yesterday. The houses of
worship of the various denominations
were thronged and in every church em
blems of the flowery festival were dis
played, while "He is Risen" was the per
vaiding thought of all that was sung or
said. Though the festival, which in a
worldly sense, is always regarded as the
time befitting the first appearance of th
spring bonnet, come much earlier than
usual, yet at all the churches were evi
dences that the milliner had cot been ig
nored. AT TRIXITT CHURCH.
The four services at Trinity church
were well attended, and were very im
pressive. The girls' choir appeared in
white vestments acd the special music
was enriched by three pieces from
Bleuer's orchestra. Rev. R. F. Sweet
preached an able sermon, appropriate
tD the resurrection festival. In the after
noon the Eister dy service of Even's
Commandery. No. 13, Knight's Templar
and St. Simon of Cyrene Commandery of
Davenport, was htld in the church. The
service was according to the order of
evening prayer of the church ritual, the
rector. Rev, Sweet, who is also prelate of
Even's commandery, preaching a sermon
from the text, Titus 1:15:
Cntothe pnre allihinps are pure, but unto that
are defiled and uiiln lievine ie nothing pure, but
even their minds aud cont cicnce it dc filed.
And from St. Matthew 5:S.
E'egfed are the pure in heart for thev sna 1 tee
After extecdlng hearty greeting to the
Sir Knights Mr. Sweet stated that in for
mer years on occasions such as this he had
spoken concerning the order, its charac
ter acd reD0n$ibiIitv. and also of the res
urrection doctrine of the church. This
year he would choose as his subject the
one which should be one of the most ob
by the Sir Knights. He then announced
his text and preached a thoughtful dis
course on the subject of purity.
In the evening the annual children'6
Easter service of the two schools was
held. The rector delivered a brief ad
dress f) the children and each child was
presented with an orange, an egg and a
little cake. The collection was for the
benefit of the orphanage of the Iloly
Child at Springfield.
AT THE FIRST M E.
At the First M. E. Rev. G. W. Gue
preached an Ester sermon in the morn
ing, ana in the evening he chose tha
clerks' movement for Sunday rest for his
subject. Ilisttxt was from:
Wark2-2T -The Sabbath was ma for man
acd uot mn for the Suta.h."
The term Sabbath means rest, siid the
pastor. It is the Dame of a holy institution
that God inaugurated at the close of
the works of creation. In the
book of Genesis 2:3. you will read, "And
God olessed the seventh day and sancti
fied it, because that on it lie hid rested
from all His works." The seventh day
became sacred, holy, because the institu
tion of the Sabbath was celebrated upon
that day. The observance of the Sab
bath by all people is enjoined by Jeho
vah in the fourth command, "Remember
the Sabbath day to keep it holy
This holy institution is not an arbitra
ry law, but a principle, founded in the
philosophy of our moral Datures. We
are benefitted mentally, morally, physical
ly ani spiritually by its observance.
Such is the nature of man, such the in
stitution of the Sibbath, and such the ef
fect which the keeping of it will have
upon him. . That if be is obedient to
God in this thing, he will obey God in
everything else. A Sabbath-keeping
people are invariably an obedient people.
The manner in which people regard the
Sibbath is a test of their character and
index of their moraLtv and religion. God
instituted the Sabbath for the benefit of
man, for bis spiritual, moral and physical
well being. As to what you may or may
not do on the Sabbath should be a mat
ter of confcience, regulated by the word
of God. Any labor that will benefit the
moral and spiritual nature of a man and
cannot be done on any other day
is legitimate work for the Sabbath. If,
however, it requires seven days in the
week to perform it, it will be injurious
even thoagh it be of eitrtme necessity,
because of unlawful strain upon nature.
The Sabbath is the line that God has
reserved for himself. A man will never
be the gainer bv stealing God's time. I
like the advice of the woman to her bus
band, when the railroad company re
quested him to work on the Sabbath, or
Jose, his place, said: "We can afford to
be poor, but we cannot aff 3rd to disobey
It is a burning shame, and an awful
6in, for corporations to arrange their bus
ness so as to keep a whole army of men
employed on the Sabbath day. Taking
away their God given right, of a day of
rest, with their families in the borne or
worshipping with them in the house of
God. The treat corporations of our
country are sabbath breaking, God defy
ing compar ies.
With impunity they transgress the law
of God. insult the christian sentiment of
the land and are terribly outraged when
the people do not rise up in their defense
when their rights are trampled upon.
Oar government joins with these cor
porations in defying God's authority by
breaking His holy day. The carrying or
delivering of mail on the Sabbath is
neither a work of mercy or necessity,
Why is it that saloons, beer gardens,
fieatres, barber shops, meat markets,
livery stables and many other places of
business open upon the Sabbath
day when there is no earthly ex
cuse, as the same business could be
done on other days if not done on the
What is it but simply a defiance of the
christian eetliment of the city? How
shocking to the feelings cf christian peo
ple to tee the bulletin boards covered
with announ oements of Sunday theatres
and Sundiy base ball games. If the
thousands of christian men, women and
children of oar city and the neighboring
towns and villages where christian senti
ment prevailH would refuse to patronize
merchants v. ho deliberately insult the
christian sentiment of our people, I am
persuaded that it will bring about a re
form in regard to Sabbath desecration.
The request f the clerks of the three
cities to have a Sabbath of rest free from
daily toil is a righteous demand, and
should have the sympathy and support of
the seven thousand proteatants of Rock
Island and the thousands of Roman Cath
olics as well.
Already thi churches and many leading
societies have- pledged their support to
the clerks in helping them to secure their
rights in bringing about the closing of
places of bus. ness on the Sbbath day.
I should thiak all business men would
gladly join in helping to brine about such
a reform. Il will be no trouble for us to
find out what firms recognize our rights
of conscience in this matter and give
them our support. Men who refuse to
recognize the laws of God, the laws of
the land and the laws governing the sen
timents of soeiety have no right to com
plain when law-abiding people withhold
their support and give it to those who
respect the laws that Ehould be saered to
all cf our ichnbitants.
At the First Baptist church there was
a beautiful display of flowers and every
thing betokened the Easter joy. Iu the
morning the pitor. Rev. C. E. Taylor,
preached on "The Resurrection," taking as
a text the words: "He is Risen Indeed"
In the evening an Eister service wa9
given by the Sunday school, entitled
"All Ilai!" consisting of songs
recitations tnd resoonsive read
ings. Miss Alwilda Young read an es
say entitled, Etster and Easter cus
toms." Miss Mary Williams gave a reci
tation entitled, 'Does Death End All."
A number of ti e young folks took part
in speaking and singing, the whole mak
ing a very delightful service.

music in an excelently artistic manner.
