"IT WAS A CYCLONE."
The Ball and Chitfccrling Supper
of the Alleged Cyclone
Great Times on the West Side.
It was Thanksgiving night and Chica
go's population was bent on having a
good time. On the West side hand
bills had been passed around, an
nouncing a grand ball and "Chidling"
supper to be given by the Cyclone
Quaitette at Tammany Hall on Indiana
street. When the APPEAL reporter ar
rived at the hall it was already filled
with a very lively crowd of ladies and
gentlemen of all complexions from
lily white to blue black. You knew
they were hdies even if they did sit
on their escort's laps and drink beer,
because they said so. Mr. John Daniels
the floor manager was neatlv attired in
a black Prince Albert and a red shirt,
showing one stone. Walking to the
centre of the floor he announced the
Grand March and selecting Miss Daisy
Blandkin, a coy joung Miss, as his
companion he moved off followed by
about fifty couples. After the Giand
march came the fancy dances such as
the "Mobile Buck," "Coon Jine,"
"Juba," "The Essence of Old "Virgmny."
The orchestra consisted of an old bass
violin played by a rather tough looking
individual, attired in antique apparel.
No other instrument was needed for
the clinking of beer glasses was sweet
music to the souls of the majority pres
ent. At 12 o'clock the cry of" "Ho
Chitterlings" was heard in the hall and
a rush Mas made for the stand where
the delicious Kentucky bivalves
were served. Two tubfals of these
a'rticles were soon devoured and washed
down with copious draughts of beer.
At 1 o'clock dancing was lesumed and
continued until a. in., the last dance
being the "Black Cancan." The com
mittee in charge of affairs, Messrs. Lea
Edwards, CJray Felixon, Pete Roberts
and Tom Calron were untiring in their
efforts to furnish beer and fun for the
crowd. They wore white cotton badges
on which the word "Cyclone" was
printed in green "Hard Tack 3Lou"
was present and insisted on playing
craps with everyone who entered. She
wanted to play with the APPEAL man
but the guileless youth respectfully de
clined her rather pressing invitation.
The ladies present were* Miss Julia
Greenman, blue serge, white cotton
trimmings Miss Allie Leen, red jer
sey,blue cloth skirt.yellow ribbons Miss
Mollie Princeton, yellow and gretn
combination suit, Miss Lucy Jane Lewis,
white linen, with old gold trimmings
Miss Esther Smith, black cotton, reel
ribbons Miss Ella Dicebox, green silk
cut entrain, paper muslin trimmings.
Miss Elizabeth Crimmps, of Austin Ave.
dressed in a blood ledpiush, with green
ornaments was considered the belle of
tke ball. The managers had taken the
precaution to have all razors, knives
and revolvers left at box office, so no
fight occured except one or two little
scraps in wnich a few persons were
thumped with beer glasses. Mr. Eli
Skinner also had his eye punched out
with a pair of brass knuekles.

Colored Kindergartens, and especially
proud of the women who have volun

paring for future good work. Mrs.

engaged in the work have shown a
spirit and willingness that can not be
spoken of too tenderly or strongly:

such a fine young man. I is the inten
