any cake. Slices were cut and sent to
his associates and playmates.
In conversation with an APPEAL re
porter, Rev. Thomas said that some of
the statements in the APPE VL, concern
ing Olivet church meeting were untrue.
We told Mr. Thomas that the statements
were published just as they were given
by members of the church. The APPEAL
endeavors to treat everybody fairly and
would not willfully misrepresent any
one. We must say to the persons who
have been giving information that they
should be truthful and not place the
paper in a wrong light, by misreprenting
facts. "Some of this matter is true, but
thesegmembers weave in a few lies, and
if we knew who they are, we would
make short work of them in the church."
said Rev. Thomas.

Troubles of a Nijrht.
The "High Tea" by the Ladies Auxil-
liaryofSt. Thomas church took place
last Friday evening at Jackson Park.
The park is an immense tract of ground
on the lake front, extending from 56th
to 68th street, reached by Hyde Park
cable and Illinois Central railroad. The
tea was advertised to take" place from 4
to 11 o'clock^in the pavilion. A few of
the faithful gathered at the appointed
time. About 5 o'clock there was a ter
rific rainstorm which lasted about half
an hour, when it cleared off and a beau
tiful night followed. The ladies arranged
their oil stove and began to boil water
for the tea, when the park policeman
came and informed them that no fire
could be allowed in the pavilion, so the
"High Tea" went on without any tea,
except a few cups which had been made
before the arrival of the copper. About
8 o'clock the cable broke down and the
majority of the people did not reach the
park until after 10 o'clock, when they
came crowding into the pavilion from all
sides, rushing over Rev. Thompson, the
only man stationed at any of the en
trances. On, on they came, wildly,
madly, pushing, scrambling and a large
number forgetting to purchase tickets.
The pavilion was so crowded that it was
almost impossible to dance itb. any
comfort, but dance they did, as soon as
the band began to play. In the midst oi
the festivities out went the calcium
light, leaving the pavilion iu utter dark
ness. The professor in charge of the
light announced that it would be neces
sary to extinguish it for a few minutes
to fix it in someway, but owing to the
noise, the annonncement was heard by
only a few, so, when the light went out,
some of the ladies began to scream, the
boys yelled "where was Moses when the
light went out?" and it is even said that
arms shpned around waists *and kisses
were stolen, but the APPEAL saw none of
that. Some of the crowd who had paid
nothing, were very indignant because
they did not have tea served in eggshell
china and free ice cream. Several per
sons were lost in the park and with dif
ficulty found their way to the cars. Some
ladies got in the park ali light, but could
not find the pavilion. Jackson Park is
a tract of several thousand acres and in
the daikness it was quite easy for a per
son to lose his way. The cars do not
run very late on that line, and quite a
number were compelled to walk eight
or ten miles to reach their homes. The
conduct of some of the rough bojsand
men on the cars going to and coming
fioin the park was scandalous. They
guyed each other, cursed, used vile lan
guage, climbed on top of the cars and ren
dered themselves generally obnoxious
to lespectable people. The ladies who
had charge of affairs realized 50 for the
church, notwithstanding the many diffi
culties under which they labored. A
gentleman who had been appointed tick
et taker arirved about 11 o'clock just as
the lights were being put out. He had
lost his wav and had wandered about
the park for two hours without being
able to find the pavilion.

We present this week a cut of the
front elevation of the new St. Peter's A.
M. E. church now building on Twenty
second street between Ninth and Tenth
avenues south. The organization has had
an eventful career since its organization
three years ago. While truly a mission
in the sense of reaching a class who
rarely attend services elsewhere, it has
been compelled to rely upon the people
served for support. Not one dollar has
it ever received from any church or
society. The building is in the Gothic
style, 40x74 feet, finished in oak. The
seating capacity is 450. There is a
large basement, with Sunday School
class rooms. The cost of the structure,
including the lot will be about $7,500.
The contract calls for its completion by
Sept. 15. The building committee,
consisting of Rev. L. H. Reynolds the
pastor John L. Neal, C. C. Carter, R.
C. Marshall and G. W. Turner, is mak
ing an effort to raise $1,500 bv subscrip
tions. C. G. Goodiich, C. W, Mason ,R.
H. Jones, Col. Geo. C. Ripley. S. C.
Gale, Col. Snider, R. B. Langdon and
several other gentlemen have contribut
ed quite liberally. The first service was
held in^he basement of the church July
29 but the dedicatory service will not
occur until September.

About The Coming* Man.
It is pretty certain that the coming
man will be bald if he continues to wear
tight hats,and toothless if he continues
to liye upon soft food and certainly
near sighted if he continues to live in
cities and only use his eyes upon near
objects. But there will be other change-*
easily foreshadowed by the present drift
of events. Faith in revulsive measures
and medicines for the sick is now aimost
a thing of the past. Change of habits,
change of food, and the use of specifics
are now seen to be better. Change of
the kind of food upon which we live,
and the plentiful use of hot waterthe

to wash out and eliminate waste and

A Husband's Greatest Blessing
Is a strong, hearty, wgoious wife, with
a clear, handsome complexion. Many
of our American women not only woik
too hard, but they ha\e no change of
scene, no opportunity to rest and lay in
a supply of health, vigor and ruddiness.

womankind too) "Tbe Burlington"
would whisper to the husband who has
a weak, listless, bickly wife, with a dull
complexion, take the little woman a
journey, and if you want to be suie she
will enjoy that journey, buy her a ticket
to the destination, (whatever it is) over
"The Burlington," for its elegant accom
modations, smoothly running cars, and
the delightful scenery through which
the line passes, will do much to rest and
to restore her to health. "The Burling
ton" is the loute to all health resorts.
