E. church toik place al 10:."d Sunday morning. Between tifiii and 7(U) peojile attended. The Iirst on the program was an anthem by the choir, which was rendered in lilting war. The choir is compos ed of some of the best musical talent of the town. Rev. M. A.' Head, of Kock Island offered prayer, and Rev. M. M.McCreight followed with scrip ture, reading from Hebrew 11. Rev. Iwis Curls, of Chicago, next deliv ered the sermon from Hebrew, on 'Faith,'1 and gave illustrations and proved in various ways, that men had faith jn each other, or else the government and men of different trades could not hold together. Rev. Curls has a good wav of bringing a subject right through and making young and old understand what h has to sa. lie tol'.l the congregation aliout his bovhood days and his ilavs in the war, and then told the? people about the church debt. lie also explained what J). D. stood for after Lis name. He said D. 1. stood for .Debt Dest rover.1 and said that lie had helped to de stroy many a church debt, and that he would destroy the debt of this, church before he left, and indeed he spoke tiie truth, as he had 15 signers of $100 each before he commenced on $0.) each, following w ilh $;." each, and so on lower. After this was tin ished. Rev. Curls dedicated the church, aiid took for his text Psalms lL'7: 1: "I v.b. k3 !ira ilirj-s: id nt.t3 me, l.tns go into ;Uc house uf 1 be I. mt,v In the evening service was held at 7 o'clock. Dr. Curls made a fev, re mat ks, ami thanked the people for their libaraliry in their donation in th- morning, as they had destroyed .he debt," but that "they wanted "an additional $oU for a pipe organ out of the congregation in the evening. but he onlv got about 100. This was the beginning of thenew church. and a whole family dedicated them selves to the Lord, and all the mem bers seemed pleased with the good work they had accomplished. Tht Kittll.. The church, which cost, about. $7. 4 1, including steeple, bell and fur nit lire, is situated 011 one of the best 1. its in town, and no belter ilace for a church could have been selected. The Ladies' Aid society purchased the church lot for $MJ." The rhnrch is a line brick edifice, and is as nice as any oT its size in this county, be ing liuished inside with hard pine mouldings and ceilings. The build ing is d:ided into two parts, the au dience room and Sunday school. The rooms can be divided I y wooden cur tains. The windows are all of col: ored glass, which is made in Strea tor. lib, and all of them are of a fine design. The bell weighs between 1, loi and 1.1 G ) pounds. The building is heated by a large hot air fnrnaee. which was bought of David D:m Rock Island. The lighting is done by gas. which is made by a Chicago gas machine, which is placed in the basement. The large light in the main room is a line one containing HG jets, and surrounded by a large reflector hung with prisms. There is also a large gas lamp iu front of the church, which gives a splendid light. The furniture was teleeted by an appointed committee, and shows good judgment in the selec tion. There will be a meeting every night this week, and ail persons are invited to attend. Arnold, Constable & Co. Full line of samples in silks and dress goods are to be shown at our stofe all day on Tuesday, Feb. 1. We have arranged witb one of the travelers from Messrs.

About Wednesday Next, we expert to be able to open our auction purchases from the wholesale stock of the James II. Walker company.

The goods already on Ihn way consist of bed spreads, towels, toweling, n lot of short length shirting prints which will be sold at Sc a yard, a lot of heavy brow n muslins at 4e, be and 53c a yard, a lot of 100 dozen large size pave linen nankins, cost the James II. Walker company last spring 9.?e per dozen. Linens have since advanced so that today they cost $1.05 perdozen to import.

Their representatives are calling upon each family, explaining the peculiar char acteristics of the p:wdtr, and taking orders therefor. As a special in ducement for every one. to give the powder a trial, a liberal rebate is given on one can on this occasion only. The expense of this ' work must be very large, but tho manu facturers evidently believe that the superior quality of tho powder will be so apparent wheu used by our housekeepers that it will hereafter sell itself. One of the representa tives inform us that the siijwriority of this powder over all others is due to its nutritious and healthful quali ty, great baking strength and purity. It is strictly a pure phosphatic pow der, containing no alum, atnonia. cream tartar or anything else of a daubtful character. These claims are fully verified by many eminent chemists and physicians. The repu tation of the. manufacturers and the powder Is of the highest character, and they are bound to succeed. An (lid slil' lleatti. Daniel T.
