Another Thanksgiving day has re
corded its good deeds and nobler
teachings and inspirations among
the people of Rock Island, recalling
to them the manifold blessings of the
year and lilting up their hearts in
praise and gratitude to the Infinite
I'owcr, from whence cometh every
good and perfect gift. The morning
was given over to the devout observ
ance of the day. The annual union
service was held at the First Baptist
curch which was thronged at the
opening of the exercises at 10:30
o clock. The congregations of the
Centra, Broadway. First M. E.,
Ninth street M. E.. First Baptist,
Christian and United Presbyterian
with their pastors joined in the
Thanksgiving offerings, the Rock
Island Ladies' Industrial Relief
society taking the occasion at one
for receiving gifts for the unfortu
nate and needy of the city.
The city'a poor were remembered
to the extent of $25.05, beside many
gifts of wearing apparel deposited in
the church before the service. The
financial contributions were turned
over t3 the Industrial society to as
sist in its work of helping the needy.
The services were made especially
attractive by a program of excellent
singing, and the embankment of
foliage lying at the foot of the ros
trum lent beauty. On the platform
were: Kevs. C. E. Taylor, W. S.
Marquis. F. W. Merrell. T. W. Graf
ton. H. C. Marshall, 1. YY. Allen and
Skidmore, of l'ortland. Ore.- The
srrtuon was preached by Rev. Allen,
of the Central Presbyterian church,
whose subject was Thanksgiving."
This is a day of the family," said
Rev. Allen, "one when father," mother
ami children gather about the festive
board to offer up thanks and bless,
logs. Today children come home,
relatives join relatives, but yet there
is an empty chair at many a table:
that of a wayward son or departed
beloved one. But 1 venture
to say that we are ungrateful. We
are more thankful for human gill
than divine ones, when in reality
everything is possible only through
the guldlngs and handiwork of God."
Bern-diction was pronounced by Rev.
Skidnmro and the congregation
joined in singing My Country 'tis
of Thee," which closed the service.

"There is a species of fish in the In
dinn ocean which hare a very remark'
ablo peculiarity, " said Thomas Q. Tal
hot, a Philadelphia naturalist "This
fish is provided with a short snout,
which it uses very much as a sportsman
uses a gen. Swimming cloee beneath
the surface of the water, it watches the
fliea flitting about directly overhead,
and having selected one to its fancy
suddenly thrusts its head out of the wa
tcr and with unerring marksmanship
discharges several drops of water at its
victim. Confused, and with its wings
drenched and rendered temporarily use
less by the watery projectiles, the insect
drops to the surface of the water, where
it is immediately gobbled up bv its vo
racious enemy. These fish arc said to be
able to bring down a fly in this manner
from tho height of two or three feet. "
