Si bleak's P.iDHlniaa team tke Swedish Lathera Church, and the Ituna Therefor-The Results. An unfortunate condition of affairs has prang up in the Swedish Lutheran church at Qalesqurg, and one that in a great measure complicates and Interests the people of the congregation of the same denomination in Holine. Rev. Mr. Nybladh was, by action of the synod of Holme recently expelled from the church in that city, of which be was a member, and barred from attending Augustana college. The reasons assigned by the committee for this action were "too io timate associations with a woman while attending Augustana college, and irreg- larities in his money matters." The dea' cons of the Galesburg church have since taken this matter up and peremptorily discharged Mr. Nybladh from the pasto rate, and are preparing charges which ill be finished aoon and will in sub stance conform with those preferred against the gentleman in Moline. lne action ot the ecclesiasts appears not to have met with the approval of all the members of the flock, and a large mass meeting including many ladies was held at the republican headquarters at Oalesburg Tuesday evming to make some arrangements for Mr. Nvbladh's future and to prove to him that he still has many friends remaining in the church. A committee was appointed to investi gate his debts and settle them if possible, and another committee was commis sioned to mnke arrangements for Mr. Ny hladh's entrance into Knox College. A subscription was taken up during the meeting which resulted in the rais ing of $315 for. Sevt-ra! speeches were made by different persons and nearly all soundly rated the deacons for the hasty steps which they took in dis missing him from the church. Mr. Nybladh also made a few remarks and closed the meeting with prayer. Mr. Nybladh is reported as saying that he wished to have the affair investigated relating to the woman. He says he has tried to find the woman referred to, as well as the committee who brought up the charges, but has failed so far in doing so He denies his associatiou with her in any way and that 'he committee had no cvi dence for that of which they accused him concerning the woman. As to the money affairs, he admits peiog in debt about ftlOO, but avers that it was necessary in debtedness connected with his course while at Augustana college and since attie Viek.ra 1 Her Sew Play Km a ltreidea liaeeeas Coaatnx Enter tainments. A large audience turned out to greet the popular soubrette and specialty star, Hattie Vickers, at Harper's theatre last night, and it is a misfortune that an actresa who has made the impression that Miss Tickers has in her original "Jacqnine" in Rock Island, should re turn as the centre of attraction of such a pack of stuff and nonsense as that in which "Cherub" abounds. It is not a little surprising that a woman of Miss Vickers' gifts should link her name and reputation to such a tiresome, trashy conglomeration. When Miss Vickers de parts from the little Dutch girl a char acter written to suit her peculiarities, her racineas of talk, her vivacity and fun- she loses her charm, and the only really enjoyable feature of last evening was one of the familiar song and dance selections from "Jacquine," who is always wel come, and in which impersonation Mattie is the female Emmet; but "Cherub" has not "caught on." The support was gen erally weak. The largest and costliest troup of ani mal actors on earth appear at Harper's theatre tonight and tomoirow night with matinee tomorrow afternoon. Lovett & Johnson's equine and canine paradox ar rived by special car this morning, and the first of the unique entertainments is to be given this evening. The Dayton Journal says: For good, genuine fun, the Lovett A Johnson Equine and Canine Paradox, now appearing at toe Grand opera house, is an exhibition that alt should witness. It is a great show, pleasing alike the old and young. The fourteen ponies are very handsome, and go through a number of pleasing end difficult movements, elicit- ng rounds of applause. Romeo and Juliet are rare ssecimens of the Shetland pony, and their teetering act is extremely pleasing. The fifty dogs do all saris of tricks and are alone worth the price of admission. The "Fireman's Ward" is a spectacu lar and interesting drama tojbe presented at the Turner Grand opera house, Daven pott, Sunday evening. The great suc cess it has met everywhere and the lavish praise hetowtd upon it by the press, attest its dramatic eicellei.ee. SOUR ON THE SANCTUM.

The following special dispatch to to day's Chicago Times from Galesburg fur- ishes additional facta in connection it h the case: The First Lutheran church was crowd ed this evening with people anxious to ear tbe charges a wains t the Rev. C. A Nybladh, who was last week expelled from tbe Lutheran church at Moline and from supplying the pulpit of tbe church ere because of alleged scandalous inu macy with a woman while attending Augustana college here, as well as irreg ularities in money matters. The Kev. M. J4t-Ison, of Henderson, read an official statement from the church council at Mobile, givine an account of tbe investigation. At tbe first meeting ins of the council, Nov. 15, Nybladh was charged with the paternity of ihe child of dbi Aurierson, and of haTing mortgaged ner ms oooks ana an organ that did not belonsr to bim. These cbareea Nybladh denies. Two letters from tbe woman to Nybladh were produced in hich she charges bim with the paternity of the child. Of these letters Njbladn at first denied all knowledge, but at length admits thai he read one of them. Andrew Feteraou was delegated by the council to viit Mrs J. A. (itrges at Rog er's park. She and her domestic said that Anna Anderson gave oirth to a child at ber (Mrs. Garge'f.) home June 2S, 1886; that the woman asserted Nybladh was its father; that letters have passed between Nvblauh and Miss Anderson; that the latter had consulted a lawyer to recover damages from Nybladh. and that a person nswering Nvbladh's description had called at her house Nov. 15, inquiring for Anna Anderson. W hen confronted with hese facis at the second council meeting, Nov. 2B, Nybladh confessed that he had mortgaged the organ to Anna Anderson, and had been advised to prevaricate by a friend, but gin denied the paternity of the child, or ever having been at Mrs. liaree s house. Then the Rev. Lindehlad, of Moline, and the Rev. M. Rnnceen, of Chicago, accompanied iNybladh to Mrs. Uargei house, and both she and her do mestic recognized Nybladh and were quite positive that he was the man who called at the house inquiring for Anna Anderson. His hair, they said, was shorter when be first o.lled. but tbe council, in its third meeting, Nov. 27 reported that It learned frem Galesburg that Nybladh had his hair cut before making the first visit to Mrs. Garges'. Tbe committee also saw tbe Chicago lawyer who collected the money for Anna Anderson on tbe mortgage on the organ. At this third meeting the council, think ing tbe proof conclusive in spite of Nv- bladb s dental of tbe paternity of tbe child, expelled him. The reading of this statement to the congregation tonight produced a deeo impression and was listened to with deep interest. The only thine that Nvbladh can do now is to appeal to tbe confer ence. He left here last night, saying that be was going to Chicago to see Anna Anderson and get from her a written statement affirming his innocence. His friends here say that nothing more will be done until the statement it) forthcom ing. Pavlna Material. The Davenport Democrat- Gazette favors brick as a paving material in preference to asphalt, cobble stones, cedar blocks or other wood pavement It Bays: Public attention is turning to brick as a substitute for stone and wood. It has been in use several years at Bioomington, 111., and also in Virginia with most satis factory results. Clay is the ore all u mi num. and when properly mixed and vit rified, becomes an igneous rock, unaf fected by heat, water or frost. It fa a greater resisting power against shock than granite, it is homogeneous, slightly elas tic; has tne grit which will bite steel or Iron; will neither act upon or be acted upon by horses' shoes; has a more per fect bearing than stone; can belaid more compact; is noiseless, dustless, non-ab sorbent, and therefore healthful. From a sanitary standpoint impervf ousness to water and moisture is an all important requisite of street pavement. Every sanitarian is cognizant of the dan' ger from soil eontamination and pol lo tion; that a filth sodden soil has a bad influence upon health by tbe effluvia em an a ting therefrom. The constituents of street filth are multifarious excreta and unne of animals, garbage, kitchen water, house slops, human excreta solid and liquid. With a pervious pavement this foul mess is washed and soared into the soil, exposing welts to pollution, and dwelling bouses to poison by ''ground air. For assortment, quality and prices it always pays to trade at Lei Mis V, ckhart. THE PAIR. Louis Eckhart The Illinois State Boird of Health's Discovert.--. Partial DtsKaosia of the Dread Disrafie. Following the example of a number of states of the northwest, the Illinois state board of health has issuid a circular re latiog to diphtheria. Tbe ground is taken that it is a contagious disease, tbat is one capable of being conveyed from a person suffering with the disease to a healthy person. It is, therefore, preventable. and the success of efforts at prevention depends upon a knowledge of the modes by which it may be conveyed. For prac tical purposes these sre as follows: 1. By immediate contact with tbe ex halations, discharges, etc., from a diph' theria patient. g. By contact with such emanations through the medium of air and water. The circular says: The obvious deductions are. on the one hand, to destroy these emanations or to render them harmless, as promptly as they are produced; and, on the other, to se cure the utmost attainable punty of air and water. Ihe specific instructions which follow have reference to those two modes of prevt-ntion and should be care fully observed by everv family in any community where diphtheria makes us ap pearance. And the very same precautions that prevent tbe spread of diphtheria or scarlet fever will prevent the spread of small pox. Small pnx.typhoid fever and diphtheria are filth diseases produced by filthv sur- roundioes, bBd water, bad air and bad food. Of course the lives of cleanlv peo ple who live in :leanlv abodes and pay every attention to sanilationare exposed to the contaginn.and when coming in con tact with it take the disease. But these diseases originate as we have stated, and can all be prevented as we have stated Because diphtheria finds the maiority of its victims among children, there is not tbe same attention given to precautions Bgainst its spread aa there is, for exam pie, in the case of small pox And yet there is every reason to believe that the Bpread of diphtheria mav be effectually controlled by a proper observance of proper sanitary precautions. A preventable disease which, not in frequently, causes a greater mortality than typhoid fever, small pox, scarlet fever and measlts combined, and which during 18 I. caused 51.33 out of everv 1 ,000 deaths from all causes in the United States, and which has caused nearly that proportion (51 out of every 1,000) in the state of Illinois, certainly demands the best efforts of all interested in its sup- nression, and this tbe more imperatively sioce its treatment is as yet, confessedly unsatisfactory. The Cathttlle uharca', Thanbazl vine;. Pope Leo has issued as order whereby he requests all Roman Catholic priests of th world to observe Monday, December 31, as a dsy of thanksgiving in honor of the completion of his graud jubilee Tbe order provides that on that day a special mass of thanksgiving be said to the Almighty for all Bis favors bestowed upon Bis servants; that from the end of the first mats till the last, or during the entire day, if found suitable, that the sacrament be exposed to the veneration of the public, tbat a public service be held during the day when appropriate prayers may be offered and especially the rtcitation in common of the rosarv, after which the "Te Deum" should be sung, followed by the "Tan turn Ergo" and the Oremus" "Deus cojus misericorilise concede nos," followed by those for the pope and tbe church, after which the proceedings may be adjourned.

The fashionable puppy is the bull or fox terrier, with a decided leaning in favor of the last. The fox terrier is, in the first place, a dog easily taken care of, for he enjoys his bath and comes out of it a thing ot beauty, for his skin is so glossy. Then he can be taught no end of very clever triefcs. Of his abilities in the way of cat and rat catching nothing need be said; but when he is the smart pet of the season he is not asked to de rote himself to such material occupation. He i a rough, black cover piped witta orange, for this shade is tbe color or tne legion of honor for dogs. He has a silver collar with his mistress1 address on it, but not his name, for it is trusted that if he is lost tbe ever pervading district messenger boy will return him, and not by reason of the knowledge of bis name strike up an acquain tance with him and detain bim until tbe re ward has been doubled or even trebled.

They stood in front of a well known down town bar room, tbe elder leaning against a lamp poet. His chin drooped upon his breast and be seemed utterly down hearted. He looked like a laborer.
