Rev. J. Frank preached a powerful
sermon last Sunday morning from the

was spoiled by the announcement from
the pulpit that Bro. Barry had been ex
cluded from the church for following
the example of Christ while on earth
and keeping the Sabbath day holv.
The Colored Y. M. C. A., which is al
leged to have met here was a failure. Not
a single outside delegate was present.
All of the city delegates were elected to
some office. After three days work
they came to the conclusion that it had
better "die a bornin." Good enough
we don't need any Colored christian
associations. Now Bro. Mack will have

Robert Sweeney and Mrs. Millie
Harris were married by Justice Keigwin,
Monday. The bride is on the shady
side of fifty, and tips the scales at 300
pounds. This's her third venture in
the matrimoual line, and she has three
daughteis, all of them over eighteen
years of age, The groom is a mere boy
scarcely eighteen, and would not weigh
much over one hundred pounds. While
the papers were being made out, great
drops of perspiration trickled down his
cheeks, and he seemingly realized the
solemnity of the life-long obligation he
was about to take upon himself.
Bro. A. Barry was excluded from
Fifth avenue Baptist church last week,
for believing in that portion of the
scripture which says "Remember the
Sabbath to keep it holy." The vote to
turn the brothel* out was not unanimous
bv any means. Some of the members
were liberal enough to allow Bro. Barry
to obey the command as he understood
it. Among them was Bro. W, L. Gib
son who, after Bro. Barry's dismissal
moved that he, Gibson, be dismissed
also as he believed as Bro. Barry.
Miss Florette Allen askfd to be dis
missed, but the church refused to take
action, promising that their cases would
be considered in due time.
