HE WAS FROM BOSTON
And of Course Very Particul ar
About His Surround-
Humphrey's Sunday Frolics.
Mr. J. H. Humphrey of Boston arrived
in Chicago about a month ago. Having
been brought up on Boston baked beans
he was a gentleman of very refined
tastes. For three weeks he lived at No.
3154 Butterfield street. On Monday,
August 20 the gentleman from the Hub
-went to Mrs. M. Suutli 2723 Butter
field street to engage a room for himself
and wife. "I wish to rent a room by
the week" aaid he, "so as to be sure that
I am with first class people. You see,
I'm from Boston and very particular I
don't care to be mixed up with anybody
and everybody, so I'll rent a room by
the week and if you prove to be first
class, I'll keep the room permanently."
The nerve of the man almost took Mrs.
Smith's breath away, but she said: "I'll
try for one week."
Last Sunday just as Mr. Humphrey's
first week was nearing completion, he
began to stir up things in the Smith
mansion. Early in the morning he
amused himself by taking the break
fast which his good wife had prepared
for him and dumping it in the alley.
Next, he smashed up a few dishes, and
then tried his hand on the furniture.
Next, he heat and choked his wife. For
several hours this nice, particular, gen
tleman from the city of baked beans had
a^jreat time. About four o'clock in the
afternoon Mr. Particular 'Seized a huge
butcher knife and brandishing it over
his head, he veiled like a wild Indian,
and threatened to kill everybody in the
house. The women ran screaming into
the street leaving Humphrey master of
the situation. The patrol was called and
arrived shortly after with six policeinen.
They called upon him to surrender
which he did at once and was placed in
the wagon where he cooly lighted a cig
arette and began to smoke. As the pa
trol passed the corner of27th street some
one said: "Why! that's the gentleman
from Boston, I wonder what he has
done, I thought be was so nice."
The particular gentleman from Boston
town now resides in another room and
he isn't nearly so particular about be
ing with first class people as he used

Reed 's Rebellion Repressed.
A meeting, was held at Bethel Friday
night, to iecide the Reed case. Bishop
John M. Brown presided. In opening
the meeting, Bishop Brown said: "I
have come here at the request of a com
mittee. I don't know that I have any
business. I have appointed Rev. Reed
to Oskaloosa, and there he must go '"S
The Bishop gave a short lecture on
the duties and responsibilities of the va
rious church officers. "Rev. Reed,"
said the Bishop, "lias been here three
years he should consider himself for
tunate. He is a single man and none of
you would marry him he must go to a
smaller place and give this important
charge to a man of family. The General
Conference changed me, antl now I must
live in Chicago so as to reside in my
Episcopal district. I have to break up
my home, but I must do so or be in re
bellion against the authorities. If Reed
does not go to Oskaloosa he is in rebel-
lion." Re\. Dorsey said, "We want
Reed returned and thought perhaps you
might change your mind."
Bro. Walker thought that they had
not been treated light "Henderson was
sent back, ana Heed was not. That's
Said Bro. Amos Howard: "Three
thirds of us have petitioned for Bro.
"What's that?" asked the Bishop.
"Three thirds have petitioned for Bro.
"My good brother, you are a little
mixed in your arithmetic three thirds
is all." said Bishop Brown.
"Well, most of us want him back. I
have been a member of this church two
years and a half, and I say if Reed is not
returned, you'll get no dollar money,"
cried Bro. Ford.
"Hold on there, my brother," ex
claimed the Bishop. "I am not working
for dollar money, but for the cause of
Christ. You should be asbamed to talk
that way. Here you have been inciting
a rebellion, and now you insult the Bish-
"Go beg his pardon'" "You've in
sulted our Bishop!" "Ask his forgive-
ness!" cried several sisters. Bro. Ford
rushed up to the pulpit, climbed upon it
and implored the Bishop's pardon.
"A man like you," said the Bishop,
has no right in the Methodist church.
If there are any who aie dissatisfied
with my decision, they can come and
get their letters and go. If Reed does
not go to Oskaloosa, I'll appoint another
in his btead, and he'll go nowhere."
Bro. John Weekly said, "Bishop, I am
sorrv Bro. Ford said what he did. I
suppose there is no use of saying any
thing moie." "Praise God from whom
etc." said Bishop Brown, and-the meet
ing adjourned. A day or two before the
meeting "Baldheaded King" went to
Fort Wayne R. R. office where J. B.
Simms is employed and threatened to
whip him. Simms got out a warrant for
the arrest of King, and if the gentleman
with no hair on the top of his cranium
had shown himself at the meeting, he
would have been arrested. Mr. King
did not come to the meeting and so
