BIG BABY BOOM.
Remarkable Increa se of the.In
fantile Colored Popula
tion of Chicago
3 0 Colored Babies Born.
Chicago is a great town. It was a
great town of 900,000 people prior to
June 30, when some of our suburbs voted
to come in with their 300,000 people and
enjey the city conveniences. Chicago
now has 1,200,000 inhabitants and is
working hard for the second place with
Philadelphia as a vigorous competitor!
In the great struggle the Colored man
and brother is doing his share to in
crease the population, and he is succeed
ing nobly. No less than 30 babies have
been born in Chicago since annexation,
they came yelling and screaming into
the world like amateur 4th of July cele
brations, as if cognizant of tbe fact that
they first sawlight in Chicago the second
city of America, the wonder of the nine
teeth century. While the cannon were
booming, the fire-crackers popping in
honor of the Nation's Birthday Mr. and
Mrs. A. J. Bell of 2766 Dearborn btreet
were made happy by the appearance of
of a 13 pound boy.
Friday July 5th, two Afro-Americans
were ushered into this breathing world.
One, an 11 pound girl was born to Mr.
and Mrs. G. D. Willims 514 Larrabee
street the other a 9 pound boy made
happy the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. L.
Lewis 229 Duncan street.
Saturday July 6, Mr. and Mrs. Felix
Myers of Hanover street were delighted
when a 15 pound boy came crowing into

into existence as follows. Mr. and Mrs.
Sam Wright, 22 Campbell avenue, 12
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Helms, 39 Belle
view place, 8 pound girl.
Mr. and Mrs. Crutchfield 2972 Butter
field street, 13 pound girl.
Mi, and Mrs E. H. Browning392
State stieet, 10 pound boy.
Mr. and Mrs. Kelley, 449 N. Clark
street, 8 pound girl.
Mr. and Mrs. R. D. Page. 2137} Clark
street 11 pound girl.
On Monday July 8, when Mrs. Sam
Lee of 2729 Dearborn street presented
her husband with a ten pound girl, he
was the happiest man in the block.
On the same and at about the same
time that Sullivan knocked out Kilrain,
Mrs. R. D, Younger of 322 Clark street
became the mother of a sixteen pound
boy. His father is a great admirer of
the manly art of self-defense so the boy
will hear the name of John L. Sullivan
Mrs. Sam Lung, living at 519 Madison
street is a Colored lady married to a
Chinaman so we presume her baby boy
born on Monday will be classed as a
Tuesday Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Stewart
of Englewood rejoiced with exceeding
great joy when they gassed upon their
Wednesday July 10, five babies boun
ced into life. Mr. aud Mrs. H. L. Pit

The Colored people are jubilant over
the great increase in population and
more babies are to follow.

The Colored Citizens of Minne
sota Celebrate at the State
Tuesday Aug. 1st.
Tbe interest taken in the citizens cele
bration at the Fair Grounds on Tuesday
Aug. 1st, is hourly 'increasing. It is the
principal topic of Conversation in the
-Twin Cities" wherever one goes. The
men, the ladies, the children, all seem
to be going wild over it and the indica
tions point to the greatest time the peo
ple of Minnesota ever saw. It is a sort
of new thing, and everybody likes new
things. Minnesota has more lakes with
in its borders than any other state in
the Union and lakes are no rarety, we
have all been to picnics at the lakes, but
a celebrationremember this is not a
piccieoffering such a variety of sports
as will take place at the Fair Grounds
Aug. 1st, has never been seen here be
fore. The lovers of driving and fine
horses are tickled to death over the
prospects for the great trotting matches,
in which, already five entries have
been made. The ladies as well
as the gentlemen are interested
in the contest for the finest turn
out as the gentleman must be accompa
nied by a lady for his rig to take the
blue ribbon and the cup.
There is great excitement among the
athletes regarding the foot laces or
sprinting marches and the number of fast
runners that have sprung up the last
few days is surprising seven entries
have been made for the great sweep
stakes foot race of 100 yards at $5 entry,
and several more are expected to enter
next week. There will also be an exhi
tion race of 220 yards by Mr. D. Clark
a young sprinter with an enviable rec
ord. Mr. Clarke is something of a shot
also, and offers the following challenge to
any Colored man in the state:
To WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN:

a match at either clay, pigeons, blue
rocks, or Peoria black-birds foT$25a
side. Said match to take place on the
State Fair Grounds Thursday, Aug. 1st.

shoot at fifty targets each.
Any one wishing to accept the chal
lenge will address the undersigned,
careof THE APPEAL. D. CLARK.
Arrangements are making for some
matches between base ball nines of Min
neapolis and St. Paul and some rare
sport in that line is expected. The

set is offered to the girl or boy who wins
the three best out of five games. Per

these contests are requested to send or

the various pai ticipants 10,000 of these
will be distributed throughout the state,
