her home in Georgetown, Mo., last
Tuesday evening. Miss Briges, during
her stay in Minneapolis, made many
friends who regret exceedingly her

sickness of her brother, who has been
an invalid for two years.
The Peoples Theatre as a resort for
pleasure and recreation, is not excelled
by any place of amusement in the city.
Why? For many reasons. As many
drops of rain fills the ocean, so does the
many charictaristics of the Peoples
make it the most popular. First, its
manager, Mr. W. E. Sterling, a gentle
man possessing a thorough knowledge
of the business is catering for the
pleasure of the people. Mr, T. L.
Hayes, its treasurer, is a young gentle
man of rare culture, who, as an indi
vidual.assures the public of satisfaction.
The next character is one upon whom
depends the satisfaction which is re
ceived by every one except a few
chronic kickers who reside in our city.
From the polite, genteel and accom
modating manner of their ticket agent
and assistant treasurer, Mr. L. D. Mc
Leans, a young gentleman polite to
every one, treating everyone alike, re
gardless of color or nationality. To
assure yourselves ofthese facts,you have
but to visit the Peoples Theatre, situ
ated on Washington avenue, bet.Henne
pin and First avenue North.

Tlie Concert and Ball.
The immense crowd that attended the
concert and May ball given by chemical
engine company No. 4 at Market hall on
the 18th testified the esteem in which
the company is held by the people. It
was certainly the largest crowd^that any
organization has ever drawn in the city.
The programme which consisted of sev
ent een numbers was carried out almost
to the letter and was one of the finest
entertaining programmes ever present
ed here. The performers all did their
parts to^perfection and their efforts were
well received by the large audience,
The performers were Mesdames Katie
Mason Smith, Booker Smith and Miss
Bertha Heathcock, soloists Messrs. J.
W. Luca and C. A. Mason, vocalists
Prof. Sherry, Libby, Johnson. Peters
Morton,Feller and Master Ralph Smith,
banjoists William Nichols, guitarist
the Star Caliope Quartette, Farrell, Ter
rell, Singleton and Brown the Fire
mans Quartette, Finley, Huck, Holmes
and Chur Saenger, harp Siewert,
zither Prof. R. T. Brown and Miss Lu
lu Griswold, pianists: J. J. Chur and
Billie Farrell, specialties. The success
of the affair is due in a large measure to
the indefatigible efforts of Capt. W. C.
Hawkins. A pleasant feature of the ev
ening was the drill by the company un
der the command of J. J. Chur at the
end of which Mr. J. Q. AdamB with a
short speech on behalf of Messrs. Cun
ningham and Jefferson presented a
beautiful silver pitcher and goblet to
the company. He was followed by
Rev. J.M.Henderson in a longer speech
who presented a large and elegant bible
as a gift from the ladies committee who
had charge of the woik of procuring it.
The ladies had an excellent supper
spread in the immense banquet hall
and there was a refreshment table in
the dancing hall. The ice cream and
the dishes used were kindly donated by
the famous caterer Mr. T. S. Watkins.
After the floor was cleared every
body who chose to do so danced to the
sweet strains of music furnished by Prof.
H. F. Plates orchestra until early morn.
Every one was well pleased with the
entertainment which was a grand suc
cess in every way.

the singing of "The Golden Gates" per
sons sobbed audibly in all parts of the
cengregation. The class meetings weie
very interesting, and the Sabbath school
especially so. The evening services
were largely attended the seats being
filled to the door. The evening was de
voted to a historical review of St.
James church. Mrs. Addie Henry read
the first paper which beginning with
the pastorate of Mr. Wise in 1872 re
counted interesting items of history
down to the advent of Rev. Knight in
1882. Mr. Wallace King then rendered
a solo, "Come unto Me and I will give
you rest," the words and music of which
we will never forget. Mr. King is too
well known as a tenor singer to need
comment, and if a visibly affected audi
ence is a tribute to a singers power, Mr.
Kingc an rest assured he did not sing in
vain. The next paper, "Recollections
concerning by-gone days," by Mrs.
James Banister, was excellently read
by her daughter, Miss Ella Smith, and
among other matters referred to an
occasion when Mrs. William Liggins is
said to have made six dollars from a
single can of oysters during a festival
given years ago for the church.
The next paper, "Remembrance
since 1882," by Mrs. C. B. Lazzenbery,
was most excellently read and full of
interest, after this, Mr. T, H. Lyles and
Mr. D. Hardin entertained the con
gregation with short addresses concern
ing those early days. The choir
rendered excellent music at intervals
between the papers.
The presence of Mr. King, seemed to
have aroused all the youthful fires in
Prof. J. W. Lucca whose deep tones
rang out full and clear as we imagine
