The IMrst M. E. church wis packed
last even ng on the occasion of the ser
mon by the pastor, Rev. P. W. Merrell,
on the subject, "Curing a Drunkard," as
aooompllihed at the famous Tillage of
Dwight, Illinois. As hitherto announced
Mr. Merrill was for three Tears prior to
bis coming to Rock Island located at
Dwight and was the first chaplain of the
Bi Chlori le of Gold c'ub there, and was
therefore competent to speak from an
experienced and practical standpoint.
His tex; last evening was from Acts
Who went about doing good and healing all
were oppressed of the devil.
rVe hear in these words. Mr. Merrell
said, a suamary of Christ's life. It cons
stated in doing good snd in healing all
that are physically, mentally, morally or
spiritually diseased." Hence the found
ing of asy 'urns and institutions for the
relief of humanity is a Christly work.
A Jenncr or a Pasteur is a benefactor
of the raw. Ruyhan stayed the ravages
of small-pox and hydrophobia two ter
rible maladies Science is doing a
Christly work. It is staying the flight of
the dark eagel of death. The effects of
intemperance are more deadly than the
ravages of small pox or hydrophobia and
hence it is not strange that the attention
of men should be arrested by a cure for
intcmperarce The work at Dwieht has
been grata tously advertised simply "tor
humanity's sake," as the editor of the
Mercury, of New York, put it. Tbe
most conservative of periodicals have
opened the r columns, such as the North
American lUview, Harper's Weekly, New
York World and New York Sun, LoDdon
Times, etc. This recognition has been
accorded through the influence of Jo
Me dill, of the Chicago Daily Tribune,
who sent several hopeless sots as t68t
cases to Dright, and was so struck by
the reformation wrought in them that
he took it t p at once. He has published
editorials and articles without stint on
this subject. This free advertising
has been for humanity's sake.
For' humanity's sake, also, this
service is held, for tbe possible re
lief of any home suffering from this
scourge in tiese three cities. You that
come from homis untouched by this
curse cannot understand the joy that
comes to wires, mothers, sisters, friends,
from whose hearts the terrible burden of
dispair is lifted by the curiDg ot loved
A letter from Lob Qatos, Cal., was reed
as a sample of hundreds received by the
d pecker wherein the writer detailed her
experience f. om tbe first awful awaken
ing to the fait her husband was a drunk
ark down to the final loss of hope, as she
realized her husband was hoplessly ad
dicted todrink. A ray of hope broke
upon her thriugb an article in the Advo
cate, fromtha pen of Rev. Merrell.
After having witnessed the joy that
had dawned on very many dispairing
ouls as they regained their loved ones
redeemed from drink, no wonder the
speaker felt in interest in the work.
With regarl to the character of tbe men
who take treatment it should be borne
in mind he said that among tbe victims of
intemperance are our brightest and mcst
influential and beloved citizens. Men of
social natures, generous, magnanimous,
are such as ara nnder peculiar temptation
in this direction . Hence as might be an
ticipated the patients are a class worth
saving and worthy of an acquaintance.
Tbe speaker described in a brief way the
organization ot the Bi-ChJoride of Gold
club and the institution of the Sunday
service of whbh he was made chaplain
and given entire control. Tbe character
of the audienca gathered in the club room
of Sabbith morning was such as to inspire
any minister of tbe gospel. Judges, phy
sicians, mere! ants, millionaires, men of
prominence from nearly every state in
the union were gathered there.
The mode of treatment was described.
and it was said that the drugs were not
taken away at once from tbe patient, but
that his strength was kept up and the
drug replaced by other medicines until
he refused his t Id stimulant entirely. In
this way many lives were saved that by
any other treatment would be sent to the
Some illuslra ive cases were presented.
The Champaign morphine man who had
been taking 100 grains of morphine and
a pint of alcobd daily for 10 years, and
who at first had to be watched to prevent
his committing suicide, but who was
brought out without being aware of the
time when he ceased osixg morphine.
Another case fit m Detroit was spoken of
where the man Lad been discharged from
his position because of drink and divorced
from his wife for the same reason. He
was reinstated bi his old position and re
married to his wife. It ended very trag
ically in the indden death of his wife.
Several other caies were presented.
As results of tiis movement has come
a better nndersi ending of those who f a'l
victims to intemperance mistreatment
is based upon th i theory that intemper
ance comes to be a disesse. Hence these
men deserve sympathy, even though they
were guilty tn falling into tbe pit.

Gen.D. W. Flagler, chief of ordnan ce,
U. 8. army, arrived in Davenport Satur
day night and was the guest of Judge
Nathaniel French over Sunday. Tonight
he will be tendered an honorary recec
tion by the Piute club at the rooms of
the Davenport Business Men's associa
tion, and the associations of Rock Island
and Moline have been invited to attend .
Gen Flagler will remain about a
week. This morning Presidents Jackson
and Bennett of the two associations
calkd on Gen. Flagler on the island to
learn his wishes with reference to .the
two association's reception and banquet,
which will be held during his stay here.
At a meeting of the committee from
the Rock Island & Moline Business Men's

afternoon it was decided to give Gen.
Flagler a reception at the Harper house

The "Two Orphans" was presented to
a large and well pleased audience at Har
per's theatre by Eate Claxton and her
company Saturday evening.
Tonight we are to have Thomas
Murray's comedy success, "Our Irish
Visitors." Mr. Murray is the funniest,
quaintest Irishman that ever appeared on
the stsge, and that nose. If a nose has
any expression his has enough of the
right sort to keep an audience convulsed.
Tbe small boy in tbe gallery is always
imitating him on the street and at home,
and tbe company is composed of splendid
artists ss well . Frank Davis is another
gem in his way. '.When Murray and
Dayis appear (the long and short of it)
you feel in your bones that you are going
to be will repaid. The business man
bothered all day with troubles and cares.
Don't have to think; they just sit, see,
laugh for over two hours or more. If a
balance of a million were at stake they
would forget it. The ladies of the com
pany are all pretty and charming. The
dancing and singing, nonsense and hodge

get dull care and enjoy yourself.
On Thursday evening will be presented
that successful comedy drama, "777," of
which the Chicago Tribune says:
The only dramatic novelty of the week
is a melodrama called ' 777, at Havhn a.
It is written by Joseph D. Clifton, and
