Six o'clock Sunday morning prayer
meetings are proving powerful agents
for good. May more try to come. Our
covenant meeting was one that stirred
the coldest heart, and put new life into
the deadest of dead Christians. The at
tendance was very large. In the after
noon the pastor and a good portion took
part in the unique missionary meeting
held at the Goodrich ave church it was
real missionary in its spirit, and real in
spiring.
The ever increasing congregation that
greeted the pastor was one among many
other signs that the pi ogress was made
by Pilgrim Baptist church, in the last
ten months, has been of that truly
healthful nature. Solomon's temple went
up, without noise or bustle, so true

God has planted in the human breast
a love fur the good, the beautiful and
the true, and this instinct will ahvajs
assert itself. True merit will always
win in the end, and a church that will
hold high standards and untalteringly
seek to be just what God designs will
always succeed. But men or chuiches
that compromise with wrong in order
to win temporary advantages find that
God's vengence awaits them further on.

Christian hearts were ablaze with love
and thanksgiving to their Father. The
Monday morning Tribune said that Sun
day was a red letter day with the St.

fort was then turned to what has now
consumatedin the beautiful chuich edi-
ficeSt. Peters. The St. James slowly
faded into something of the past. Min
isters came and left without success and
the church became dead to its organiza
tion and to the interest of Minneapolis
church goers. Rev. Thomas as we have
said, took charge of this historic little
ediScei but not a congregation. Think
ing to go over and view the little church
and listen to the sermon of Bishop
Brown, we visited the St. James last
Sabbath evening. On entering we found
the church crowded with people mani
festing the greatest interest in the ser
vices and the welfare of the church.
Bishop Brown preached a plain, practi
cal sermon one not of eloquence, but of
profound logic and sense. After which,
two little children were baptized by
Bishop Brown. Tbe little ones were
Masters Theodore H. Rice and George
Paul Griffin. A liberal collection was
given by the congregation. Rev. C. H.
Thomas should be credited with the
success of St. James.

On Monday the topic of conversation
was of Bishop Brown and the churches.

by Mrs. Williamson. The bishop sat at
the head of the table with Rev. Thomas
on his right and J. L. Neal on his left.
Rev. J. M. Henderson and Prof. Haw
kins of N. came over from St. Paul
late but found plenty of chicken await

bishop was taken for a ride. Seated
with him were Rev. Henderson, J. L.
Neal, and R. C. Marshall while Prof.
Hawkins, Rev. Williamson Rev. E. A
Mitchell and F. L. Anderson composed
another party. THE APPEAL was associ
ated with Rev. C. H. Thomas behind the
pastor's trotter. The diive was taken
over the most beautiful parts of the city,
to the Lake of the Isles, where J. L.
Neal's residence was reached and the
scenes of a most unique christening took
place as the party stopped to quench
their thirst by water. The little chil
dren were seen playing around the
yard and were gathered in and christen
ed by Bishop Brown. Mr. R. C. Mar
shall and Miss Maggie Freeman acted as
god-father and mother for John L., age
three years. Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Ander

Knights of the Razor's Picnic.
The barbers picnic which had been
erest took place as advertised at IslandF
Park, Momence, Monday and while a
nice affair in most particulars had an
unfortunate and tragic occurence indi
rectly connected with it. Ed. Bennett
and Cal Duncan two well known men of
this city had an altercation concerning
an alleged insult offered by the former
to the latters wife which was resented
by Dunban who said: "Any man whohere
insults my wife will have to bring out
gun or razor and go to fighting, fists will
not do" at the same time he drew a re
volver and fired two shots at Bennett
both of which struck him killing him
instantly. Duncan then walked to the
depot to wait for the trdin. Officer Rusk
commonly known by the soubriquet of
"Midnight" who was on duty at the
grounds when he learned what had oc
curred went to the depot and ordered
Duncan to surrender who answered by a
shot from his pistol which passed
through the lap of the officers coat and
buried itself in the leg of a white man
standing by. Rusk made a rush for his
man and a desperate struggle ensued
the crowd of picnickers who up to this
time had been completely demoralized
made a concerted attack on the mur
derer and fired a number ofshots at him
only one of which however struck him
in the arm, but he was cut up very
badly with razors and knives by the
maddened men and women. He
waBLampton
not so badly injured as was at first re
ported and was placed under arrest.
Duncan is a janitor in the Insurance ex
change building on La Salle street and
has a bad reputation, Bennett was not
so good as he might have been but
hardly deserved his fate. In justice to
the barbers, it may be stated the affair
did not occur on the picnic grounds, but
at the town of Momance, some distance
away where the parties concerned had
been drinking. The barbers are not to
blame for the presence of these people
at their picnic and they regret the ter
rible tragedy exceedingly.

Bare Sport,
Some men will stand all day with a
rod and line in hand and wait unmur
muringly for a fish to come up and get
caught. They don't care about the
weather or fatigue. It puzzles some,
but a patient angler always says that
when the fish does come, tbe excitement
of the catch rewards him amply for ev
erything he has endured. There is
thing like sportive enthusiasm. Satisfy
your desires in that direction by ta
king a trip over the St Paul & Duluth
Railroad, to points where the fish bite.
The Duluth Short Line is tbe best route
to and from St. Paul, Minneapolis, Du
luth, West Superior, White Bear Lake
and other points. Information cheer
fully furnished on application to A.
Plough, General Passenger Agent, St.
Paul, Minn.
