The second trial of Christian Ecker- Keil, near Bellvue, last July, commences in District Court Tuesday morning at 9, says the Clinton Herald. There is now a well defined rumor that the man will plead guilty, ' at opening of court, to murder in the second degree and take sentence. It is reasoned that the prosecution failed in the former trial to prove intent, although facts went to establish Eckerlebe filled the girl. It is now brought forward thatJEckerlebe will admit he-wentl-td- the spot,where the murder occurred, to meet Mlna and prevailed on her to be more "kindly to him. That she refused to lister/, and he took hold of her to detain her. Then the struggle, and in fear she would accuse him of u grave crime, be shot her on sudden impulse. Of course, this is conjecture. If the defense does plead guilty of murder in • the second, for which he may be given a life sentence, the State may not accept the plea, but Insist on pursuing the trial, with a verdict in the first degree as. an FLOOD A FACTOR.

Action was Erst taken in 1893, when a -Committee of Supervisors was Appointed to take into consideration of the needs of the county. t this committee reported in favor of a new Court House and that $125,* 000 ' would be required to build it. Work was begun on the foundation July 20, 1895, and the building now Btands complete in its entirety; a thing of beaty, and, it is to be hoped, It will be a joy to the people of Bock Island county for many yeara to come. This new Court House was dedicated and thrown open .to the public on Wednesday of last week, From turret to basement it is complete and elegant Therooms are large and well lighted and well ventilated and everything is finished in natural oak and looks rich. The chandeliers are all made especially for the building and are of natural copper, The deor and window trimmings are of the same. The walls and ceilings are all painted in . mellow col- ora and the main Court Boom and the Memorial Hall, used by the G. A. R,, are especially fine. The latter makes a very beautiful home for the old; boys of the G. A. B., and for the women of the W. B.C. Each floor has Its toilet rooms and each office is as complete in itself as it is possible to be. The vaults for the County and City Treasurers are of the safest and latest patterns. The building, as it stands, cost about 6175,000 and.it is a monument to the InduBtfyTlnteiUgeuce and love orjw^ tlce of the people of Rock Island, THE ACCREDITED SCHOOLS. The Stnto Unlverilty linn Made n Chnnge For tha Uetter In U» System. The University of Illinois, recognizing the fact that, a State university should furnish opportunities for higher education to us-many as possible of the youth of the State, has recently made a change in its system of accrediting schools, whereby it is hoped to bring all the High Schools of the State Into closer relation with the University. Heretofore, only schools of a certain rank have been accredited. The new ruling provides that any school may receive credit for any subjects included in the requirements. for admission to the University, provided the work in those subjects be sufficiently well done. This permits the High Schools not capable of doing all the required work, to be accredited for part of the entrance requirements, and admits the graduates of such schools without examination on the work for which the schools are accredited, giving them the opportunity of making up the remaining requirements • Jn the preparatory school of the University. APRIL WEATHER. Hlcka Tliluk* the .Tornadnen May Prove • .. Troublesome. According to Weather Prophet Hicks,r from the 1st to the 4th of April the weather will be quite warm and will constitute a regular storm period. He says tb» vernal perturbations are still in full force and that a low barometer will move from west to east. Marked and'dangerous storms of rain and thunder are promised, and Hicks says that no locality should allow Itself to be surprised by tornado visitations, Following the storms will come cold waves and killing frosts. Again, from Aprils to 10, the weather prophet advises persons to be prudent and watch carefully the barometer, that they may be prepared for tornadoes; The most precarious period of the month, Hicks asserts, will be from - the 12th to the 17tb. A wave of great warmth will sweep over the country, accompanied by a fluctuating barometer and violent hail, thunder and-wind storms. A heavy frost wilf follow this period. The last storm period of thie month will be central about on April 25. A FORMER MORRISON GIRL. She Contribute* a Kovelty to This Month'u ilcClure'* Savanna Journal: A series of hitherto unpublished letters written by Gen. Sherman to a young girl, who applied to him anonymously for information regarding an. army officer of whom she had once been the correspondent, is the most novel feature of the April number of McClure's, There is a touch of humor and a touch of romance in the story the letters unfold, and one is moved both to sigh and to laugh at the posture which the general's 'good nature nnally brings him, The young girl referred to in the above ^tem, eays the Morrison Record, was EUa F- Fraser, ' daughter of Mr. and Mrs, William Fraaer, of thl9 city She is now the wife of Dr. W, II.

WASHING^ THE KELTNKR TALKS OF THE ORDINANCE At DUNKARD CHURCH, The Attendance WM Ootxt—Ordinance la- fttltated Bt the I-crd'g finpper at £en**s- Jena~W»« Not *t» E«t*bttahed Custom Btfora that Time. There was a very good attendance at the Dunkard church Sunday evening, notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, The sermon was delivered In an able and eloquent manner, The speaker eaid he did not wish to unchriatlanize anyone or speak to excite controversy, bnt to simply do as Paul said to Tirno- thy, 4:1-4, "Preach the Word." Feet Washing was instituted in the upper room at Jerusalem at the same the Lord's Supper and the Communion were instituted. Christ said on that occasion, speaking of all three of these ordinances, "If ye know these things, happy are ye If ye do them." It was shown clearly, that Feet Washing, as instituted by the Savior that night, was not an old established Jew* Ish custom, for a number of reasons which were given. First, it was entirely different, since the Jews washed their 'own., feet,'or, possibly, the servant the lord's, but never the lord the servant's. Again, if it was only a custom, Why did not the disciples understand It? Why was it necessary to give them an example? "For I,have given you an example that ye should do as I have done to you," John 13:15. How absurd for any one to say that Christ's disciples did not do as the Lord commanded them. Would not this reflect on their character ? " And 2fls_lt_ojalyjQr.them 1h _Bince he says In Matt. 28:18-20? "All power is given unto me in Heaven and in earth. Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, etc. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." .;.'.. Those who say the apostles did not practice it should read First Timothy 5:9-10, where Paul, instructing Timothy in regard to certain, widows, says, Let not a widow be taken into your number unless she has washed the saints' feet," etc. ; This language was was written abr ut thirty-two years after Pentacost. Why not go back of Pentacost for authority for Feet .Washing, since all denominations go back of Pentacost for the formula for Baptism? Matt. 28:lfi. Does not the'scrlpture above show that Feet Washing, was'observed after Pentacost? Some say thatought.as mentioned in the scripture in this connection, is not binding. Let us look at some other scripture, where the word ought appears. Eph. 5:28, "So . men ought to love their wives as their own bodies," etc. Not necessarily, but they ought to. Heb. 2:1, '!We ought to give the more earnest heed to. the things we have heard," etc. First. Jbhn 4.11,'.'Beloved, if God HO loved'ue, we ought also to love one another." But according to tha above reasoning, is is not necessary. Ob, consistency, thou are a jewel! Again, Some say that it is simply an act of humility, and we can show our humility in some other way—that is, by feeding~the poor, clothing the naked, etc. It is not necessarily for this purpose, but it is a second wash- lag or spiritual cleansing, preparatory to partaking of the Lord's Supper and the Holy Communion. Its now observance may not keep ua out of Hea- en.but it does separate us from Christ, since Christ said to Peter, "If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me." Is not the obedience of this ] ordinance the safe ground? " Christian people do not differ so much in their belief as to the matter as they do in~practice. Another prominent minister of our city says be thinks it would be right to observe this ordinance, and he would be glad to observe it if the synod or conference would establish it. Finally,if the word of God is to judge.us in the last day, John 12:48, is it not necessary and safe to obey all of Qod'a truth? MRS.
