Valuable -pearls r.re rn.re irrircsh~watoTcIaniBTiiB well aa iuaalt water oysters, however^ and the Wisconsin farmers who have abandoned their crops to dredge tor mussels will probably Und that pearl fishing is in their locality what it is elsewhere—a slow and laborious method for making a fortune.

The most profitable pearl fisheries in America are in the salt waters of the Gulf of California, where valuable pearls are found in paying quantitlea. —Morrison Sentinel: For years the people of this and some of the neighboring counties, as well as from Iowa, hare been going to Albany, this county, to explore the mounds near that village. Their labors do not go un- rewarded, as many of thla city and vicinity have numerous relics found in those mounds, some of which are highly prized by the fortunate possessors. The following is taken from the Geneseo Republic: In a green pasteboard box, tucked away under the counter at Herman & Waterman's, frank Eard has some gruesome rellca of a mound exploring trip he took up near Albany, Whiteside county, iast Monday. The relica consist of two well preserved human skulls and a number of other bones. In company with a professional mound explorer - of Albany he got the relics of a past age from a low mound in an oat field, the bonea being found about a spade length below.the surface of the soil. Frank says t that beads, pottery, weapons and other interesting relics besides bones are often unearthed in searching the old mounde. —The friends of the Hennepin canal project are still actively working for it. At the National Waterways convention, which was held last week at Cincinnati, a resolution favoring the construction of this canal was adopted. Congressmen Gest, of Rock Island, and Henderson, of Princeton, were the only delegates present from Illinois. The Rock Island Daily Union has the following to say in regard to the matter: "The Hon. W. H. Gest and other representatives of thie locality in the waterways convention at Cincinnati, returned home on Friday muoh gratified with the success which attended their labors. The strongest resolution ever presented in a convention of this character in behalf of the Hennepin cana', was adopted. It seta forth the necessity of providing the northwest with an all-water route to tl>e Atlantic seaboard by constructing a canal from Rock Island on the Mississippi to Hennepin, at the junction of the Illinois river and Illinois & Michigan canal, and by widening and deepening the Illinois & Michigan canal its entire length—to Chicago and Lake Michigan, to give it adequate capacity for our commerce. And it not only gives it this broad and comprehensive endorsement, but it earnestly requests congress to make an appropriation at the coming session and order the work begun, lien. T.J. Henderson and the Hon. J, 11. Murphy were Influential in the convention for the Hunnepln aa well aa Congressman Geat." It is known that government engineers have been making surveys of the country between Lake Michigan and the Misaiaaippl.and It is expected that they will make a re- pott in Congress at 1U nait session.

MANDEVfl.LE, OF CHICAGO, AM) II Y Dli. DOKCHESTril, OF BOSTON. —Col. Stnmbaugh has been in Chicago having copies mafic of his Knights of Pythias emblematic picture. He Int't lui '.rdt-r to have a good many hnn- ilnd copies made, and we hope lie will lird a larRfi demand for tlipm ariionp the Knlghta. the new nd of N. Carpenter & Co. Sunaay was a day of days for the Rock Falls M. E. church people. Their church has boeu-so enlarged and repaired that it is really a new structure The old church, 85x00 in si?.e has been enlarged by an addition on the north ir,xia feet for the pulpit and choir and organ, and one on the south, lox:',0 feet, to increase the size of auditorium. On the west is a lecture room 20x:i(i ft. opening into the main audience room by folding glass doors. The parlor 15 x2r> feet, is north of.this, and the class room 18x20 on the south, both opening into the lecture room by folding doorp. This immense and conveniently arranged floorage space is elevated but two feet above the street and is made easy of access by a vestibule 0x9 feet, opening from the street to the main auditorium and one on the southwest 5x10 feet, from which are doors open ing into the main audience room, the lecture room and class room. Church extension architect Price, of Philadelphia, furnished the plans. The external appearance is attractive and modern. The interior finish is of Georgia pine, and the pews, pulpit and altar rail are of solid carved oak, all finished in the natural color. The altar is circular in form, as are also the rows of pews,' which widen from it The inalu audience room has comfortable sittings for 335 people, and when the lecture room is opened it is increased by 200 and both by using extra chairs can easily be made to accommodate 000 people. The walls and ceiling are handsomely decorated. A large', furnace is placed in the basement and ample arrangements are made for ventilation. The internal appearance ia attractive and commodious and its arrangement is a model of comfort, convenience and utility. Altogether it is one of the largest, best arranged and furnished churches in this vicinity. At an early hour. Sunday morning the people began to gather, in order to uecure fnvoniblo a«at.H_ancl .'ntJflifi'LthH. house was fillfid with a delighted and expectant congregation. Dr. C. K. Maudeville, of the Chicago Wabash Ave. M. E. church preached the dedicatory sermon. It was eloquent, scholarly and spiritual. His text was "For mine house shall be called a house oi' prayer for all people," ta"ken from In- lah 57:7. For over an hour he held thu large assembly in rapt attention, as he discoursed on the "Church of God," its history, purposes and uses. After tho sermon, Mr. O. A. Oliver, on behalf of the building committee, reported that the aggregate cost of improvements was 84,200, of which there- remained an indebtedness uuprovided for of 81,205. Subscriptions were called for and the responses were so prompt and generous that it was soon apparent that the amount needed wns more than provided for. Dr. Mandeville conducted the impressive dedicatory services assisted by Doctor Dorchester, of Boston, and the pastor, Rev. M. M. Bales. Rev. Daniel Dorchester, D. D., of Boston, preached in the evening from the text, '-Our rock is not as their rock; our enemies themselvi s being the judges.". It was one of the doctor's beat efforts; proving from their own au thentlc writings that atheists and skeptics themselves acknowledged the truth and power of the fundimental doctrines of evangelical religion. ' It was announced that the morning subscriptions amounted to $1,500 and it was announced that the surplus should be used to pay the deficiency in the current expenses of the year just closing and for some additional improvements. Our Rock Falls Methodist, friends have reason to be proud of their church and the successsul completion of their enterprise. This is one of our largest and most aggressive churches with a membership of over 300 and the largest S. S. in the county. Great credit is due to the pastor, Rev. M M. Bales, the building committee, O. A. Oliver, J. J. A. Zeller and W. B. Priee, and the members and friends who stood so nobly by the work. The GAZETTE extends its congratulations.
