Ttev. George "William Douulai, In
flllliifjtbe position of rector of St. John's
T.plicopnl Church, enjoys the prestige
ol ilelivcrlnc his scrmoni to tho moit
Jnhlonnl)lo HUillcnco nt the National
Capital.
The church Is located on tho north-i-ast
corner of Sixteenth and II streets
Jiorthwoat. II Is one of tho oldest In
lhc city, and is famous for Ihc beauty
of Its Mnlncd glass windows, one pane
of class nlono costing $'2.",000. Tlie
jcsldcncoof the rector Is situated Just
norlh of the church on Sixteenth street,
and is a Mibstnntlnl throe-story, red
lulck building with nn English base
ment. The ha'.l, or ante room, Is handsomely
dccoraUd with rare old rhlnn and pni
trry, some valuable spiclnicns being
silmost us nnclcnt as Christianity Itself.
On tho first landing of the stairs can bo
hcen an old-fashloncd clrek neaily
f-cven feet high, and similar to tho heir
loom timepiece that stood In tho bouse
ol Secretary William (' Kndicott. Tho
"high mantel in this nntc loom Is orna
mented by tho figure of an Egyptian
unman In pottery.
Heavy curtains drape the entrance to
the parlor, which is the most richly fur
nished clerical reception-room in the
ity. The finished baidwood lloor Is
Mai lied h dark brown and piol'ii3oly
covered with nigs of the tlncst texture.
The wall paper is old gold and Iho fur
niture old gold and silver and a.uro bltio
to match. Two laigc plants of tho
lialm sptcics and growing ilowcrs of a
liright yellow hue appear In the bay
window, and tho tables and high man
tles are tasteful! decorated with raic
lirie-a-brnc. There arc no chandc
lieis In tho parlor, three handsome
lamps and a doen wax candles shed
iling a more pleasant light than that af
forded by gas.
l!tv. Gcorgo William Douglas, S. T.
i.. Is about Ave feet nino inches in
liclght, and of rather a slender build,
'lie has thin, blonde hair, and short
mustache and side whiskers of tho
same color. lie has a well shaped
mouth and good teeth, and his straight
noso is bridged by a pair of eye-glasses.
"Withal, ho has a pleasant faco and an
tirlstociatic one, and if Miss ICilmau
cgg, mado famous by poor Tom Hood,
ieie In cxistenco to day, and belonged
trt St. John's Church (which she un
doubtedly would), the Itcv. Mr. Doug
lass would certainly till the ideal or that
lemarknbly aristocratic young lady.
lie was born In Now Yoik In 18-10,
nnil Is of wealthy pai outage, his father,
who has slnco retired from business,
linvlng been president of the Mercantile
Jinnk there. Ills ancestors wci e among
the early colonists, the first Doimlas
coming to this country having landed
lierc in 1C20. This ancestor was a dea
con in the Congregational Church, and
another ancestor was a colonel in the
Revolutionary war. On his mother's
side he is related to the llathbonas of
Albany, N. Y. lluv. Sutherland
Douglass was his uncle, and he had an
early predilection for the Church. He
graduated head of Ills class in 1871, and
Unco years later graduated at the Gen
oral Theological Scminaiy of Now
York. Tho following two yotrswetc
spent in advanced theological studies at
Oxford and at Bonn, Germany, and at
the age of twenty six he returned to his
native city as a tutor In tho General
Theological Scminaiy. Six months
lifter he was called to be assistant lector
of Calvary Cbuicli, in jS'cw Yoik.
J.alcr lie became assistant of Trinity
Church parish, in pastoral cliargo of
Tilnlty Church, at the same time being
am active member of the famous Char
ity Organization Societv of New Yoik.
An 1B80 he went abioad" for his health,
lcturiiing In Kovcmber, 1888, to take
chaige of St. John's Chinch, in this
HIV.
Dr. Douglass says that one of tho
fcicatcst dliliculties in the piopcr dis
pensation of charities is that of finding
the most worthy objects, many of whom
xievcrask for alms. It is his opinion
that wealthy people could find many
ilrservlng of their aid thiough inquiry
nmong old acquaintances on whom for
tune lias frowned and who have fallen
liy tho wayside. He is enthusiastic
ovei the system of the Charity Organ!
yjitlon boclcty in Now York and ox
plained how the status, character and
need of almost any worthy object of
chailly could be obtained by applica
tion to that society.
On being questioned relative to the
comparative morality of this cilv and
Kew York the reverend gentfeman
Mated that he could hardly give an
opinion. "My congregation is com-pof-cd
of the best class of people," he
Mild, "and having been brought in con
luct with no other class, 1 can hardly
make a statement as to the morality of
Wnsliiugtun geneially."
Dr. Douglass is agicat lover of Htcia
Jine, and speaks and writes a half
doen.langtiagcs Latin, Qicck, French,
Oennan, Italian and Knglish.
"It would be haul forme to name a
favorite author," he replied in answet
1o a question. "In a literary field the
nullmrs to whom I owe most are Goethe,
Schlcirmachcr, Lotzo, Sainte-lluve,
Matthew Arnold, Shakespeare and
Itlrlianl Holt Hutton. My favorite
American authors aro Nathaniel Haw
thorne and BretHarte."
Ilev. Stephen M. Newman of tho
First Congregational Chinch, lives at
No. 013 Rhode Island avenue, in an at
tractive lookinc bilek house, with a
closely clipped open lawn in front. Tho
lirownstono stops leading to tho portals
or tho house are flanked on either side
with tho brightest biass rails. The
fi out door Is of stained glass, nnd the
interior of tho house Is In keeping with
its stylish oxtcrior. The walls of tho
doublo parlor are papered with a light
design, and the furniture is red and
IjIuo plush. Tho ghandellcrs aro brass,
with orance, red and bluo globes. A
concavo French minor surmounts the
heavy black mantel, nnd an upright
piano stands' in a corner of the frout
parlor. Tho tables are tastefully dec
oiatcd with brie-a biac, and this recep
tion room presents nn inviting Interior.
Dr. Nuwraan is tall nnd slender, with
lodillsb, sandy hair and mustache ami
well marked "features. He has an easy
nddicss and a scholarly appearance
He was born in Falmouth, Mo., No
vember SI, 18-15, and graduated at
llowdoln College, Brunswick, Me., in
18(17 with tho highest honors of his
class. In 1871 ho graduated at Ando
ver (Mass.) Theological Seminary, and
wns oidalned pastor of Broadway Con
gregational Church in Taunton, Mass.,
wheie ho remained for seven years.
The next soven years wcro spent at
Hlppon, Wis., where ho filled tho posi
tion of professor of mathematics for
two years in connection with his pas
toral duties.
In 1886 ho assumed his present charge,
nnd received tho degree of D, D.
from Bowdoin College threo years ago.
JIu roan led In 1871, and has a family
of two Kit ppons and a daughter, "My
opinion if Washington, from a moral
Mandpolni, is very high, ho said.
Dr. N wmnn's vlowa as to tho best
method of dispensing charities Is In ac-
cordancc with those of all the other
local clergy. "Organized chaiity Is
more beneficial than private," ho said;
"but though I deprecate miscellaneous
alms-giving for tho reason thnt It en
courages fraud and Idleness. I think
theio aro exccpllonal cases, where the
giver may hnve personal knowledge of
the needs or the worthy poor, and he
should give to such objects of chaiity

Di. Newman Is opposed to tho open
ing of the Smithsonian Institute nnd Cor
coinu Art Gnlleiy on Sunday, and does
not believe that the innovation would
be for tho good of Washingtonlans
pcneinlly. llelntlvo to tho nt-all-tlmes
absorbing liquor question, ho does not
think that prohibition Is the best solu
tion, but that more nmplu Congicssional
investigation should be instituted, with
a hv to tho gradual annihilation of
tho mm tialllc, except in the use of
medicine nnd the arts.
Dr Newman is fond of lltciaturc. his
f'lWiillo American poets and author be
ing John Gtcenlenf Whlltlcr, Henry
Wadsworlh Longfellow and Na
thaniel Hawthorne. Among the
foreign coutiibutors to literature,
his favorites ore Shakespeare, Itnbcr
Browning nnd Sir Walter Scott. Ill
favoiile passages of tho Bible nrc con

Ilov.Gcoige Elliott, pnstorof Foundiy
M. L Chinch, located on tho noilh
cast coiner of Fourteenth and G streets
northwest, lives In tho thrcc-stoiy bilek
lcsldcncc immediately oast 6f the
chinch. Exteriorly and Interiorly the
house Is a most unostentatious one.
Tho pailor is comfortably, but
modestly furnished, with vcrv llttlo
ornamentation.
Mr. Elliott Is one of the youngest
niinistcis in the city, having been born
thirty-eight years ago in Licking
County, Ohio. His father, also a
Methodist minister of the Buckeye
State, was born in the same
county, ltev. Ocorgo Elliott grad
uated fiom Cornell University at
tho ago of 21 and spent two
yenis editing a country weekly
in Ohio. He was then appointed to
preach in various towns in northeastern
Iowa, where he remained until trans
ferred to the Baltimore Conference sev
eral years ago. From Baltiore Mr. El
liott was called to this city somo three
years ago to succeed ltcv. Hy. It. Nay
lor, who had been transferred to Unin
llnc M. V.. Church, and of whom a
sketch appeared in Ia-t Sunday's
Cnruc.
Mr. Elliott was not Inclined to answer
the question as to the morality of Wash
ington as coinpaicd to that of Ilaltl
more.which lie considers a model city.
The morality of AVashlngtonlan proper
ho consideis "veiy good," but staled
that the miscellaneous temporary pop
ulation heie made it haul to compare
the two cities.
"My ideas as to thcalrc-gotng and
round-dancing arc conscivallvc, but I
don't believe in running a crusade
against them," he said in answer to an
inquiiy. "I believe tho wise course is
to lnleiest people in worthy objects, and
when they aieso Interested their lovo
of doing good will wean them fiom
frivolities."
Belatlvc to the dispensation of chari
ties Mr. Elliott is of the opinion that If
persons of means could devote sulll
cicnt lime to that object to seek out tho
worthiest of the nccdv that ptivate
chaiity would be preferable to public,
but generally speaking nnd in view of
the many demands on tho time of the
wealthy he shares the gencial opinion
of the clemy that moic ical good can
bo done through organized charity.
Mr. Elliott was questioned on the
topic of opening the Smithsonian In
stitute nnd the Corcoran Ait Oallcry on
Sunday. "I do not think that thoopen
lng of thec institutions on the Sabbath
would serve any valuable purpose," ho
bald. "It would necessitate tho labor
of certain employes on thnt day, and
there is no telling where personal service
will end If the wedge Is oncoiutioduccd.

others of n day of rest. I think the
better plnn would be to give all Govern
ment employes a weekly half holiday
in which to visit our treasuries of art.
Mr. Elliott is on Independent in noti
fies, nnd thinks that the ultimate solu
tion of tho liquor question should be
prohibitory legislation, aided by earnest
moial work.
His fnvorito American wiitcrs aio
I'alph Waldo Emerson nnd Nathaniel
Hawthorne; and his favorite foreign
poets, Shnkcspcarc and Itobcrt Brown
ing. Ho Is himself the author of one
book. "Tho Abiding Sabb.ith," which
took the Fletcher prl.o of $300 in 18S4.
Mr. Elliott has a wife nnd four chil
dren, and though he thinks Baltlinoro
a preferable field for chinch work, ho
prefers the National Capital as a place
of residence.

A select committee comprising four

and three other prominent citizens, Messrs.
Charles Welsh, II. Hlckcy, and Charles

a Mil which thoy proposo submitting to the
I.cglslnturo at an early day, for an appro

erection of a public school building
In this place, llielr commission was a
most satisfactory and encouraging one, and
no doubts can he reasonably eutcrtatued of
a fruitful outcome of their strenuous en
deavors to have this measure successfully
consummated. "No question," said a
member of tho committee, "so Instantly and
justly engages tho undivided attention of
those who contemplate migration to a new
town than that of adequate school facili
ties; and certain It Is that, In tho absence of
such a paramount Inducement, a newly-Incorporated
town, laboring under tho dlili

endeavors, will find such a want a promi

The musical entertainment held under
the auspices of tho "St. J. (J. C." at KJul

I saw nn advertisement in tho Posl a
couple of weeks ago announcing Hint
Dr. 1'. 11. Hoscoc, llhodo Island's cele
brated clnlrvoj ant. who has given sittings
for Congressmen. Senators, Presidents, and
statesmen, as well as men of sclcnco and
prolcors of colleges and universities Is
now located at 171M I, street uorthwct,
where ho maybe consulted hctwoon tho
hours of 11 to !2 and ;l to 0 dally, except
Sinulnjs.
Being intcicslcd In Investigating tho
phenomena of occult science, 1 called
at tho houso mentioned ono afternoon
and was lccelvcd byn round-eyed wo
man, who informed mo that tho Doctor
was engaged, but would bo at leisure In
n few moments. After nbilof conver
sation about the weather mid the cli
mate of Washington tho Doctor up
pcorcd. He was n pretty young mnu,
with white teeth and pompadourcd hair,
nnayed in n showy cloth dressing gown.
(1 have of Ion wondered what association
there could bo between velvet breakfast
jackets or elaborato dressing gowns and
tho spiritual woild, for all tho mnlc high
ptiestsof tho latter that 1 have overseen
linvo been arrayed In cither ono or the
other.) Ho Invited mo Into the back
parlor, and lcqueslcd mo to bo seated
at one side of a small stand, while lie
seated himself nt the other side. Ho
smiled sweetly nnd icinnrkcd, "Mv
terms for gentlemen nic three dollars.1'
I produced the amount, and tho Doctor
pocketed It without delay. "I do not
cliargo for what you may got. I would
not be allowed by my contiolls to do
so. but only for nil time." (The
young woman had informed inc Hint
n silting was Unco dollnrs for a
gcullcman and two dollars for n lady,
and I now began to wonder why his
time wns wortli one-third more when oc
cupied by a gentleman than by n lady.)
"I will try to explain my motbod as
clearly as possible. I sluill go Into a
trance and bo contiollcd by ono of the
following ." He rattled off
tho names of sages, scholars, foieigncrs,
acticsses nnd Indians. "They will un
fold to you tho book of your life not
only telling you the past nnd present,
but unfolding the future. When I
shall cease speaking you may ask any
questions you wish. I will thank you
to make n few downward passes over
my face, and when you have finished
your inteirogaloiies please lcvcrso the
motions to enable me to come out of
my trnuce."
Ho closed his eyes, I made the
downwaul passes, he gave n couple of
short gasps (like n chicken swallowing
n veiy lnige morsel), nnd began in the
loveliest falsetto voice (it would hnvo
dono credit to n Musio): "My friend, I
urn canied back to the huppv days of
your childhood, when life inn smoothly
ns the placid stream between its green
banks, spnrkllug in the sunlight nnd
rellcctlng evciy beautiful tree nnd
llowcr on its margin nnd each tlcccv
cloud that tloats in the blue ether above.
Oh! happy time!! How little appre
ciated while it is still ours, a time of
ln-no cenco, happiness and freedom
from carcl I will now pass onward
over the path of your life, even to tlio
present time. My filend, you have
bad some troubles, but your life ns a
whole has been lcmnrkably frco from
care. You hnvo traveled extensively and
will tinvel still more. (So true. I have
made several tilps to New Yoik and
been to Alexandria lots of times; or
pel haps my dally trips toTukomn Park,
whcio I livo, aio considered by tho
spirit woild as extensive travel.) You
aro thinking about n chnugo of busi
ness and wondering if It willbo for the
best. I say It will. I see many books
nnd papers and letters innumciable.
My filend, I sec two dork clouds (hero
ho became decidedly pathetic In voice
and manner, a sort "of 'I'm sorry for
you' tone); ono opens and I sco In it
the form of nn old lady -no! not old,
for her faco is illumined by the smllo of
eternal youth. As tho other opens I
see the form of nn old man, with ilow
ine gray hair, who leans upon a stnff.
These aro not l datives, but dear friends,
who will pass away within u year. (I
swan to gracious; I don't know nn old
man with llowing gray hair, who leans
on a staff. Ho must have imaeincd I
was n filend of 'Old Grimes.') "
"Thero ni o many filends around you.
Oh! so ninny; not only those or your
relatives and fi lends, but of thoso who
foim your band, for you nro very modi
umistle. You have wonderful healing
poweis. I see men of science, learned
doctois, philosophers nnd poets around
you; statesmen nnd military men. 1
see the form of Jeffeison Davis, of Gen
eral Grant and Abraham Lincoln.
They aro clasping hands nnd forming n
solemn compact that lliev will forever
work together for the b'encfit of hu
manity. I sco near you n flue, noble
looking military man, a goncrnl, and
you must have been veiy intimate with
him while in the eaith sphere, for he is
diawn very close to you. (lie must
have been promoted since ho passed
over.) I hear the names of Frank and
George, of Susan and Ucbecca, of Mary
and Henrietta."
My hands wcio lying on the table be
tween us, my right nearly covering tlio
left, on which I had n largo cameo cut
with a head, said to be Augustus Ciusar.
It was cut in Home probably about
twenty years ago. He continued; "I
seo, my friend, that you wear a very
curious ring (ho must hnvo been peep
ing); it takes me back to the dim ages
of the past, to tho days of Egypt
under tho l'haraohs (here I uncovered
my left hand a little moro to glvo him
n better view); I am carried to Homo; I
feel tho Intlucnco of Lucretius and
oh 1 what an Intlucnco ho is creating
over you. My friend, tho coming four
years of your llfo will be tho most
happy of any you have passed. You
will not dio by vlolenco, or by acci
dent, but your llfo will bo long, and,
when tho appointed timo comes for you
to pass to this sldo, it will corao grad
ually, like the going out of a cnndlo
thnt has burned down In Its socket and
expires when fully consumed, Now,
my friend, you may ask mo any ques
tions you wish."
Q. Who Is this to whom I nm
speaking 1
A. Chailotto Cushman.
Q. Ah I do j oil know what I havo of
yours nt home V (I had her autograph.)
A. Yes, indeed 1 One of your
family was very Intimate with mo
when I was in tho earth sphere.
(I oui nfrnld Charlotto was n bid spirit
given to telling whnt wasn't so, for my
Inmlly weronll Presbyternlns and would
havo thought thoy wero on tho high
road to perdition If they had oven
spoken to an nctrcss, much moio known,
ono intimately)
I then took from my pocket n look of
hnlr thnt was cut from tho head of a
very dear child (six years old) who died
about fifteen months ngo. I placed It
in his hand and asked.
Q, Can you tell mo anything about
the owner of this?
A. As I senso it, it bolongs to some
one In tho enrthspherc. Thero seems
to bo n weakness hero (clutching his
chest) nnd hero (indicating tho hack
of his head) but, that will bo ovorcomo
in time.
Q. Can you tell mo tho ago of the
person to whom it belongs. i
A. About 18 years old.
(J. Is Ihero anyone by the namo of
llobert (my fnthci's name) to sco mo or
near me? .
A. Oh' yes; but I hear tho, namo of
Frank nnd Augustn, of Sarah and
George, of Susan nnd Hnrrlettc.
(). Is there anyone by tho namo of
Julius (my child's name) near mo?
A. Ohl yes (cicsendo); but I hear
tho nnmes of John and James, of Mar

Do you rccognlo nny of them.
Q. Do you think I will livo to nn

A." Yes' veiy old, you have gicat
work yet to do.
I could not then think of nnythlng
more to nsk and ns tho wholo thing hnd
been t-a decidedly unsatisfactory I sat
still a few moments to awnlt develop
mrnts. I did not make the upward
passes, but ho came out of the trance
nil the same nnd, arising, opened the
door for mo to pass out and then pro
ceeded to open tho front door, nnd when
I had leached the step ho asked: "Did
you get anything satisfactory?" When
Iropllcd: "Not tho slightest," ho hur
riedly said: "I'roUnulv tho conditions
wcro not favoiable. ft Is not my fault
if the conditions mo unfavorable. Good
evening"' and hastily closed tho door.
I went away, thinking of the old
provcib which ends, "nnd soon parted "
This was but a small portion of the

Since wilting tho above I hnve met

JCenl Jtoinrtnco In tlio Fnmllr of ox
(iovenior Mrofm of IlllnulH,
Ex-Govcinor Bross of Illinois, who
died Moudny night, had n brother who
dlcdinMny, 1888. Thero was nstrango
story conucctcd with this brother says
an exchange n lomanco that read llko
pno of Chnrlcs Iteado's novels. The
brother was Stephen Decatur Bioss. In
183-1, whllo toachlnt; school in New
Jersey, ho packed lils vnliso one day
and told his wife that he was obliged
to go to Now York to attend to some
business. Sho never saw him again.
Efforts were mado to find him, but in
vnln, and the family mourned him ns
dead, believing Hint ho hnd been foully
dealt with in tho metropolis.
About seventeen yenis ago a man
called on Governor Bross at the Tribune
ofllec and nsked him if he had a brother
living in Colorado. Tho Governor said
ho had not, and then tho caller told
about having met n ninn soracwhcio in
the ininiug distiicts who bore such a
striking resemblance to the Governor
that he felt almost ceitaln that they
were biothers. This incident had cs
enped the memory of Governor Bross,
when another man fiom Colorado asked
him n similar question nnd iravo fur
ther details concerning tho mysterious
double. It was not till his name was
mentioned thnt Governor Bross became
Intel cstcd.
When he learned Ihat the Colorado
man was known as Stephen Decatur ho
began to wonder whether it might not
be his long-lost brother. Tho moro he
thought nbout it tho moro curious he
becamo to see nnd talk with Decatur.
Finally ho resolved to go to Colorado.
Ho did go, and found that tho man wns
fninous throughout the State. Every
one ho met called the object of his
search "Commodore" Decatur. Thoy
know all about his life in the West, but
not ono could find tho slightest account
or Decatur's antecedents.
When they first heard of him he was
ninning n lorry ncross the Missouri
ltlvcr at Omaha. Ho had come to Col
oiado in ISo'J, nnd has fought thiough
all the Indian wars since. lie had
been a successful miner and a member
orthoLegislaluio. At the time of Gov
ernor Bross' visit ho was living on a
ranch in tho Interior of tho State.
This information whetted the Gov
cinoi's nppetite for moic, and after a
pciilous journey across the mountains
he reached Decatur's ranch. Judgo of
his astonishment when ho wa3 met at
the door by a buxom Indian squaw,
who told him that she was Mis. Deca
tur. Mr. Decatur wns not nt home, but
tho Governor, now sorclv perplexed.
resolved to await his arrival. It was
not long before a stuidy mountaineer
came striding up tho load. Oneglanco
confirmed Governor Bross that it was
indeed Ids biother, nnd he ran out with
open nrms to meet him.
"Stephen, my brother, my long lost
biother," almost sobbed tho Governor.
Decatur stopped, and for a fow
minutes stood perfectly Mill, ctuiously
eyeing tho man who had accosted him.
'lhcnho grutlly said: "Who aro you?"
"Why, don't you know me, Stephen?
I am William Bross, your oldest
biother."
"I never saw you before in my life."
"Why, Stephen Bross, how "
"I tell you, sir, that you aro mistaken.
My name is not Bross. I never heard
tho name heroic. My namo is Decatur."
"Yes, brother, 1 know it is Stophcn
Decatur Bross."
"No. sir; it is Stephen Decatur."
Governor Bross was dumfounded.
Ho kuew thnt it was his brother to
whom he was speaking, nnd ho finally
asked the man if ho did not havo n
largo scar on his left nrm, n fewinchos
nbove the wrist. In response to this
question Decatur coolly rolled up his
slecvo and displnycd the scar. Dcsplto
this, however, Decatur stoutly denied
his identity, nnd, nlthough ho treated
Governor Bross with marked kindness
and hospitality, ho would not ncknowl
edge him as his brother. For several
days tho Governor lemniucd at tho
ranch, pleading with Decatur to un
bosom himself, but entreaties wero
fiimly repulsed. Saddened in heart
with the result of his long journoy,
nnd realizing that nothing could in
duco Stephen Decatur to confess tho
secret of his life, Governor Bross ic
turned homo.
In 1870 Governor Bross learned thnt
"Commodore" Decatur had been com
missioned to represent Colorado ot tho
Centennial Exposition, nnd on his way
to this city Decatur oven stopped oil nt
Chicago and visited tho Governor for
Fovernl dnys. Thero ho met other rela
tives, but to them, as to his brother, ho
denied Hint ho over heard tho nnmo of
Bross until tho Governor enmo to his
ranch. Whllo ho wns in tho city
Stephen Bross' children nnd some of
his old townspeople called upon him,
but nover onco did lie betray himself.
They identified him boyoud n shndow
of n doubt, but to nil ho simply leplled
that thoy wero mistaken. Ho finally
died In poverty, nnd his secret died with
him, for" so fnr ns known ho ne cr told
It to n living being. Somo of his chil
dren nro married nnd living in Chicago.
