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

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.

He had been receiving $75 per munth
from tbe church while in Galesburg.
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.

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.

said right here tbat Mr. Willey has tbe repu

The Fashionable Fox Terrier.
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. Tbe
fox terrier prefers to walk, so that tbe com
ing man will not see tbe ladies of his estab
lishment carry ing around a pet dog. "aus"

The speaker was a young man who looked
like a mechanic, and be was addressing a
stout man who appeared to be aboat 50 yeara
old. 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. When a
party of gentlemen entered the store the pair
followed them, tne young man tbe wblle
waring his companion that be woo Id do every
thing in hie power to aid bun.
I guest some ale will do you more good
than anything else," he said. The other did
not reply, but drew his hand across his fore

the bar and approached a prosperous looking
man who was reading a paper. He began to
tell of the nihdortunei of his companion and
said be wanted to start a collection for his
benefit right there. He bad not talked long.
when tbe bartender took a band and ran him
out of the place in donhle quick time. The
old man did not wait for any assistance, but
left hurriedly.
