F Monday Evening, July 6,1914. T H E D E C A T U R R E V I E W Page Nine Rev. W. D. Stires Address- j es Central Park Meeting. "'SAVING THE LOST" Subject of Sermon by St. John's Pastor. ' The flr«t of the open air services at Central park Sunday evening under the auspices of the Ministerial association was largely attended. St. John's church had charge ol the services and the rector, Rev. W. D. Stires, delivered the sermon. St. John's choristers sang a number of hymns, closing: ivith "Stand Up for Jesus." The service lasted from 7 to 7:45 o'clock. Dr. Stires had for a subject "Saving the Lost," his text being "The Bon of Man is come to seek and to eave that which is lost." He spoke partly a s follows: TITLE IMPLIED. "In the title, 'The Son of Man, 1 we Bee implied the divinity of Jesus. It was never necessary for St. Peter or Bt. Paul to assure the world that they ·were sons of men but when Nlcodem- us talked with Christ and heard him speak and saw the wonders that He told, he believed that He came forth from God, that He was the Son of God. The sinful woman at Sychar'a tvell talked with Jesus and went to the people of her city saying. 'Is not this the Messiah?' Humanity must Jtr.ow Him not only as the Son of God, but also as the Son of Man. He laid stress upon this title. SAW BEAUTY. "The painter beholds a picture in tvery landscape, the sculptor discerns the image in the rough hewn etone, for the geologist every boulder tas a story, and the botanist sees a iflower in every plant. In every sin- turdened soul Jesus saw the glorious fceauty of the soul redeemed from sin. "Whittier once said that men are too prone to read the Bible as though It were written for the past. We ehould read 'He is able to save' not ·He was able to save,' Sir James Simpson, a famous physician of Eng- 2and, was famous alike for his great learning and his great good cheer. His patients were wont to say that his jpresence did them more good than tiis medicines. "A young man once asked him, ·What io the greatest discovery you ever made. Sir James?' He thought he fcnew what the answer would be, but it was not. what he thought. 'My young friend,' was the reply, 'the greatest discovery I ever made was that I was a great sinner anfl Jesus Christ is a great Saviour.' Yield yourselves to Him and He will save you to the uttermost. "A large company is here. We may not all be Just like this again, but we Ehall all appear before the judgment peat of Christ. We shall there give account of the deeds done in the body whether -hey be good or evil and for every idle word. If you abide in sin here, you will have only shame and confusion anfl judgment there. If you Etand for JPSUS Christ here. He will etand for you there." REV. E. M. ANTRIM ON CITIZENSHIP Bev. E. M. Antrim's morning sermon at the First Methodist church waa appropriate to Independence day, the subject being "Christian Citizenship." 3n the evening he spoke on "When the South Wind Blows Softly."

SUMMERS, Collecting Agency. STARTED OUT BOTTLE OF II For Decatur, but Peoria Man's Wife Stopped Him. Peoria Star.--The sorrowful tale of Little Red Ridinghood who started on an errand of mercy to her sick grandmother and got nothing better for it than being eaten alive by a wicked wolf, has a modern prototype in that of Frank C. Glatz a kind-hearted Peorian. who attempted to take a bottle of whisky to a sick and thirsting relative in the dry town of Decatur and landed instead in the police court, Xow to take a bottle of whisky to a sick person living !n a dry town is a benefaction akin only to giving a drink of water to a dying man In the midst of a desert. And yet Mrs. Glatz was so incensed when her husband announced his Intention of going to Decatur for that laudable and kindly purpose that she threw fits all over the place. So cantankerous did she become that Glatz found it necessary to give her a slight and strategic slap on the wrist to calm her. The slap, as is often the case with acts of strategy, had a far different effect from what had been Intended. And Mrs. Glatz instead of calming down, boiled clear over and hastening to the police station, had her husband arrested. At the hearing this morning the lady flwelt at length on the bottle of whisky her husband had in his pocket, draw- in? therefrom the inference that he was a man of too convivial habits. Prom the man. however, who was also put on the stand, was elicited the fact that the bottle ~n as only intended to sweeten the arid lot of dry-town Invalid. The discovery so inclined the court to mercy that Glatz, although admitting the slap, got off with a fine of $3 and costs, which he paid and was then l e f t free to go on his errand of mercy. RUINS OF $2,000 RAMBLER. Taylorville DDctor's Car. Dr. D. F, Morton escaped death b y the proverbial hair Sunday when hi s car was hit by Wabash No. 8, at a Taylorville crossing. The back seat w as demolished but the doctor escaped In Jury. C, H, ID D. LEAVES Passengers Badly Shaken Up at Hammond. 1,000 CARS OF GRAIN Moved Over Decatur Division in Month of June. OUR CITY "For I Am a CHIzea of "o Mean City." Decatur's most valuable asset Is its water works plant and system. It la not only valuable on account of money invested and benefits derived, but the revenue the city derives from It Is considerable. The people are supplied with an abundance of good, filtered water at a small cost, and yet the revenue from water takers for the fiscal year ending April 30, 1914, was $76.101 59. Of course, this is not all profit. It cost $30,129.35 to operate the pumping station and f i l t e r plant during: the fiscal year, but even at r h a t there is l e f t almost {45,000 clear p r o f i t to the city. The total value of the Decatur water works system as computed by Commissioner Harry Ruthrauff, is $1,135,000. This includes the new f i l t e r a t i o n plant, now nearing completion. The value of the pumping station and old f i l t e r plant is placed at $497,149. The v a l u e of 335,234 f e e t of water mains Is placed at $502,351. The value of the new filteration plant is $135,000. The equipment at the pumping station consists of two Allis pumps, each with capacity of 3.000,000 gallons and one Platt pump w i t h a capacity of 6,000,000 gallons, m a k i n g the total capacity 12,000,000 gallons of water every twenty-four hours. During the fiscal year ending April 30 1.579,000,000 gallons of water were pumped to the filter plant, and 1.387,268,265 gallons were pumped to the city. This water was used by 5.950 water takers and their families. FORMER VICE PRESIDENT HERE Cinrle. W. Falrbank« on Way to Farm* In Greene County. Former Vice President Charles \V. Fairbanks and his son Warren stopped in Decatur over Sunday ev-iiing on their way to Mr. Fairbanks' fatnn in Greene county in his car. -Mr. Tair banks visaed his h.-it'ier W. ~t F i i r banks, 348 West Prairie avenue He left lor Greene coun-y :arly ilonfiiy rro r ning. Passengers were badly shaken up and somewhat frightened when the tender on C., H. D. train number 42 jumped the track about a mile and a half this side of Hammond. III., this morning at 7:40. The train was going about thirty- five miles an nour when the tender jumped and rode the ties for about 600 feet until the train could be brought to a stop. The men on the train pushed the coaches back and the tender was blocked up on the track agafn. PASSENGERS SHAKEN UP. After running back into Hammond for a new coupling pin, the train pulled into Decatur about two hours late. Fortunately for those in the coaches, the coupling pin between the engine and coal car did not break until the train was practically at a standstill. Aside from a little shaking up. no one on the train was hurt. 1,000 CARS OF GRAIN. In footing up car accounts for the month of June, transportation men on the Decatur division of the Wabash find that 1,000 cars of grain were moved over the division during the month, their number making up the foreguard of the big wheat rush. The charges for moving grain cars avtrage ?50 per car and thus the importance in their mope- ment from a revenue standpoint to railroads is easily understood. At least three times that number of grain cars will be moved during July nnd also in August, according to operat- irp officers of the Wabash and a big pinch of the prosperity created will be felt by Decatur railroad men. MANY PASSENGERS. Along the same gratifying lines run the division passenger reports and prospects. During the month of Junt only a shade's difference was felt in passenger receipts under the business done last year, and with the double holiday rush to start the new month, passenger officials are confident that the long depression is at last broken, and look for record revenue returns during the remainder of the summer. Monday morning saw a continuance of the heavy passenger travel on all lines operating into the city. Instead of the expected depression in business usual after a big holiday, outgoing trains were crowded all through the morning with Decatur people s t a r t i n g on summer vacations to the north and south. Incoming trains, too, poured car loads of people returning from their homes and from attending celebrations in nearby towns. Extra passenger cars have been collected over this and other Wabash divisions for excess travel throughout July. RAILROAD GOSSIP. Robert Haffey, clerk in the Wahash maintenance of way department and baseball stick artist, plnns to Have Monday evening for a vacation trip in Montana which will extend through the entire month. Mr. Haffey is no stranger to the big state where they still punch cattle and occasionally shoot up a town ir so. R. C.

Xever in twenty years has such a golden tlcie flowed into the central Illinois elevators as the flood of wheat which is now pouring into these transient granaries. Everywhere threshers are In operation and except in rare cases the wh^at goes directly from the thresher to the elevator, PROCESSION OF WAGONS. The elevator men hare no time now to play checkers. There are times when, checkers is a welcome relief from e n n u i and the country ^rain offices have developed some remarkably fine checker experts. Now there IB a procession of wheat wagons passing over the scales of the c o u n t r y elevator and the man who sits in front of the scale beam has scarcely time to leave his stool for a bite of lunch. Since every railroad station in cent r a l I l l i n o i s is a gram station and stations are u s u a l l y not more than three or f o u r miles a p a r t , the wheat that is pointr into the bins of the country elevator men may aptly be referred to as a flood. SEVENTY LOADS. S a t u r d a v the Forpyth elevator of the Shellnbarger Elevator company re- coK-ed P t v e n t y loads of wheat, 3,400 bushels, and Saturday was not a big day.

The elevator has already b o u g h t thn w h e a t from 1,500 acres which will yield this year a b o u t -IS.nQO bushels. That is only one of the t w e n t y - s i x g r a i n s t a t i o n s in Mac mi county and several of thesp s t a t i o n s h n v e two or more elevators d r a w i n g from R larger t err i tor;- than does t h e Foi ?yth elevator.

Chicago, July 6 --Unfavorable weather in the spring crop region today had a bullish effect on wheat. Reports of black rust continued. There was exceptionally heavy receipts of new wheat In Chicago, which tended however to act as an offset. The opening which varied from V i @ % off to \ advance waa followed by a material rise all around, though afterward the gain Liitirely disappeared and July under- ; \v(?nt a heavy sag. Claims of th£ largest wheat yield ev L-I known In Nebraska were offset r,\ i -ports that black rust was genera! iong the southern edge of South Da, :*ota. The close was f i r m 5i$f S ® ' a - .n't higher. i Heavy selling by commission houses j oroke the price of corn. Rain southwest where the crops have been suffering for moisture, furnished the Incentive. After starting unchanged to 3 i lower, quotations ralllied somewhat ami then v.-ent sharply down grade. December prices touched a new level for the crop, but a liberal decrease in the visible supply total helped cause a i eaction. The close was steady at .% ^ to ?4c net decline. Complaints of rust held the oats market comparatively lower. Nevertheless prices showed a little sympathy with the corn weakness. Higher prices foi hogs had only a. temporary influence on provisions. Demand was almost wholly confined to ribs. PRODUCE. New York Produce. New' York, July 6.--BUTTER--Quiet Rc- ciMpts !,000 tubp.

Greater Than Lait. Xew Orleans. I^a., J u l y 6.--Louisiana Is developing Into a. corn ftate. In spite of herself. The boll weevil a few years ago gave the first impetuj to crop diversification, and now the tariff on sugar hag discouraged the cane growers, both Influences helping corn. As long as the planters and farmers were wedded to the easy life of the single crop, cotton, sugar cane and rice liad the field to themselves. But when the bumps came, even when only long and hard enough to make the agrloul- j turist fear for his future, corn entered into its own. and has been proving a friend to count upon. And corn came well recommended. In the first place. It takes up only three months of the farmer's -oar. He can then raise more corn, or put In two other crops and still have several months in which to go fishing, for the old days of hiking to Paris seem to be past. Another Inducement which corn holds out. is that It can b« used to develops cattle, hogs and poultry for market, and easily srive double Income which the growers would derive from corn for the corn's sake. So the culture has caught on. Of cour««, Louisiana is no', yet In a class with Illinois, which produces 438.000.000 bushels of corn annually, but her yield and her acreage have gone ahead by leaps and bounds and last year sh« was In the 40,000.000 class. This year she will be still farther toward th« front with a crop 20 per cent. l»rj«r than last rear. VSPAPERl
