L. D. Bearby. Moiine, secretary; Miss
Ella Tajtor, assistant secretary; E. B.
McKo'vn s.atistical secretary and treas
urer. The programme of the convention
began with a half hour's devotional sir-
vice lei by the president A larger num
ber of lelegatts were present at the first
session than ever before in the history of
At S 30 the address of welcome to the
convention whs deliveted by Rev. H. C.
Marsh ill of the United Presbyterian
churct of this city, in the course of which
the sp inker took occasion to pay a high
trituu to the uncclflsh and nob!e work
of the nop iid body of Sunday Echool offl
cits and teachers represented by the as
sociation. In every other department
of tffcrt tbe laborer is compensated lor
his lin e, paid for what be docs, but this
body (f cbrist inn workers labor without
monej or pr ce. Their self-denial is
worthy of bieh praise. Ii finds its expla
nation in the love theo bear to God and
man. They wire welcomed also for the
work ihey were doing in instructing, ele
vating and tnobling man, making better
cil ZHS, better homes.
At tbe close of the address of welcome
'he president called upon Rev. J. Q
Adams, of Hampton, to give the response
in the absence of Rev. A. J. Colwell,
whose name appeared on the programme.
The response, though entirely im
promptu, was very lofty and interesting
The eaeaker referred to the workers he
hud known and met in such associations
iu former dnys, but who were now gone.
1 be liord s work, however, is going
on and will go on with increasing fervor.
The d -voiion of Colfrx and other promi

The first topic discussed was "Sunday
School Nieds in the City and How to
Supply Tbem." This topic wss ably
opened by W. F. Eastman. He made the
great need of Sunday s:hool work in city
and e "sewhere to be suitable teachers and
his tcpic took the direction of a talk on
efficient teachers. An interesting discus
sion f )llowid participated in by numerous
speak-.rs who touched on the need of
more missionary work, seeking out those
who do not attend, inducing the older
members of the church to continue in the
Sundny ichool, the use of incentives to
incresse recularity in attendance, etc.

Tbe next paper presented was written
by Mi j. Frank D. Taylor, but was read in
her alisiDce by Miss Fannie Cleland. The
subject was "Kindergarten Work is it
Applicable to Primary Classes?' The
paper was an able one and evinced
thorough knowledge and appreciation of
Froet el's method. Most of those pres
ent h id to confess ignorance of this work,
but such as understood it, spoke in hif.h
praise of the kindergarten idea in the
Tht cloring exercise of the afternoon
was a Normal lesson, "A Bible Study,"
by W.C. Pearce. In biief time the
speaker presented the number, names,
autho-s and dates of writing of the books
of the- New Testament. Mr. Pearce used
Prof. Hamill'8 normal les?ons in a most
happy manner. His blackooard lessons
are tie leading feature of the convention
and a-e well worth the closest attention.
The- evening session was opened at
7:30 with a devotional service led by
Rev. y. W. Merrell in the absence of U.
D. McLiughlin, of Milan, whose name
appeared on the programme. The

"Tbe Sunday School Superintendent
Who and What he Should be." Mr.
Groon's ideal Sunday school superin
tendent was of so lofty a stat ure as to
somewhat dishearten the average worker
yet all ideals are necessarily as perfect
as we can frame them. We may not
reach an ideal, but we will hit higher up
by aining high. Mr. Groom's effort was

"A Subscriber" writes The Avous to
know what is the matter with the Cable
filter that tbe water is so muddy tbef e
days, and asks if Mr. Cable is to pay
$15,000 for a contrivance that does its
work no better. The outlay on the part
of Mr. Cable, including the additional
fi'ters amounts to f 25 0C0, but The Ar
gcs cons;ders the disturbed condition of
the river responsible for the present ap
pearance of the water. No filter will en
tirely cleanse such water. The Daven
port filter would snccied no better were
it not that alum is used ihere. Whether
Mr. Cable is satisfied, however, with the
working of tbe Rock Islard filter. The

will be made to afford the advan

who know Mr. Cable will doubt.

The washouts of WednesJav night
along the C, R. I. & P. are the most
serious that have occurred for years. At
Utica the bridge was completely carried
away and at Wyacet the track is also in
a bad cocdition, while at Tiskilwa the
track has teen underwater for miles, and
it has been considered unsafe to run trains
oyer it. Two specials were made up here
yesterday morning, one for the main line
west and the other for the southwest
division. The Atlantic eiDress from the
west made up into two trains last night
one being sent we9t at 7:30 over the main
line, and the other over the southwest
division. These aie the onlv trains that
have gone west since Wednesday night.
No trains are going east and passenger
traffic has beea completely blocked. It
was thought last night that the trains
would ail be running again this morning,
but daylight brought no trains. All the
men that can be spared along the
i ne are at work and it is now
thought that trains will not be running
before tomorrow. No Caicago papers
reached the ci'y yesterday. The mails
have all been delayed from the east and
west, and business houses haye suffered
considerable inconveniecce in cont equerce
Two west-bound trains are laid up at
Bureau and two at Morris, and no trains
were sent out of ChicBgo last night. The
bridge at Bureau has been condemned.
A caboose sank down four feet while
pasting over it yesterday, and the com
pany does not feel safe in running trains
there. Tbe whole Bureau and Peoria
division is badly demoralized and it is
figured that a least 30 miles of the Reck
Island's tracks are damaged so that they
wi 1 have to be repaired.
The C , B. & Q. and Sinta Fe lines are
all badly damaged, and tbe Milwaukee is
said to have the only line that is making
regular time into Chicigo.
Reports from Spting Valley, Joliet,
LaSalle, Peru, Ottawa, and in fact all
along the line of the C , R. I. & P. give
evidence of one of the most disastrcus
storms that has visited that section for
years. All the creeks and streams are
oveiflowing the low lands doing a vast
amount of damage. The Chicago river is
hit'lier than it has been in 15 years, and
