CHEER THE SICK
CHILDREN BRING JOY TO THEIR
Crawford Branch and Easter Lily
Branch Have Just Celebrated Their
i Second and First Anniversaries
Flourishing Children's Branch Has
Over Twenty Active Members.

MRS. EDNA FULLER KIRK,
President Crawford Branch, Sunshine
$* Society, 3
East Minneapolis gets its clue share
of happiness and cheer thru the band
of women who are members of the
Crawford branch, an East Side organ
ization of the International Sunshine
society. There are many poor and suf
fering people in Southeast and North
east Minneapolis who owe many a
bright and happy hour and many a
ray of sunshine to the members of
The branch was only organized two
years ago the name Crawford branch
was given it in honor of Mrs. Mary J.
Crawford. At that time Mis. Craw
ford was an invalid-herself, but her
hours of suffering were eased by ad
ministering to the needs and sufferings
of others to her best ability from her
sickbed thru the medium of willing
workers. Mrs. Crawford managed all
the correspondence and supervised
every detail of the woik. After her
recovery she continued to do the sun
shine work, and she now contributes
her efforts in the capacity of secretary.
Mrs. Edna Puller Kirk was named
president of Crawford branch and she
has and is still serving in that capac
ity. Miss Nina Blackburn is the vice
president and Mrs. Brand is the treas
urer. Mrs. Kirk has been connected
with different branches of the Sun
shine society work for many years, and
her wide experience and good judg
ment fit her unusually well for the ot
fice she holds. They meet every other
Saturdav afternoon, and sew, knit or1
crochet whatever articles may be oi
Good Work Done.
At the last meeting it was reported
that within the month they had made
fifteen presents which were left by the
little callers on their errands of love.
Mrs. Crawford took much interest in
the children's work and taught them
how to knit, quilt and sew. During the
winter dozens of pairs of knitted mit
tens, a handsomely quilted spread and
other articles of that sort were sent out,
and at the meetings this month the chil
dren are occupied in making a second
quilt. At Easter they wrote thirty-two
letters of greeting to sick childien^
whom they could not reach by calling,
and many similar kindnesses are con
tinually done. Katherine Kollins is the
president, Daisy Dunn is the vice presi
dent and Blanche Simmons is treas
urer. The members range in age from
8 to 14 years. Each has a sunshine box
in which pennies which otherwise
would be spent for sweets, are dropped,
and such is the interest of the young
people in their-work that they deprive
themselves of little luxuries in order to
be able to give more. Enthusiastic
meetings are held and with the excep
tion of sickness none of the children
will fail to answer to the roll call.
At present the branch has sixty
members. Every month meetings are
held, at which' the president assigns
the members to their duties. As is
generally known, there is no pretense
at it being a charitable organization,
but the purpose of bringing cheer and
sunshine into homes where sorrow and
illness have crushed much of life's hap
piness, is often joined by deeds of re
lieving actual suffering from cold and
starvation. The voung women of the
society are divided into different com
mittees and each is assigned to her
particular line of work by the chairman
of the committee. Miss Amanda Ander
son is the chairman of the floral com
mittee and Miss Margaret Foster is
chairman of the committee on litera
ture. In order to replenish thevever
low-ebbing funds of the branch, dime
socials are given once a month at the
home of a member, at which not only
niembers, but friends of the organiza
tion are entertained. For these affairs
entertaining programs are always ar
The Easter Lily Branch.
Realizing that children could take
up the work with excellent results, Mrs.
Crawford organized one year ago Eas
ter, the Easter Lily branch of the Sun
shine society, which- is now composed of
twenty active members, all with the
exception of four being children from
the East Side* The Easter Lilies do
everything possible to ease the lot of
many of the sick and
whom they hear.

THE OLD DYKE HOUSE.
DYKE HOUSE IS
DOOMED TO GO NEW
Old House Served Many Purposes, Once
as Postof fice, as Police Station and as
JailMr. Dyke Will Build a $10,000
Block and Apartment House.
With the tearing down of the old
house at 120 Central avenue, another
landmark of the early days of Minne
apolis disappears. Since it was built,
it has served a good many purposes and
was once headquarters for Uncle Sam's
mail, for the police and for the jail.
For seven years past Martin Dyke, har
nessmaker, has owned and occupied the
place, but Mr. Dyke's business, with the
continuous giowth of East Minneapolis,
grew in equal proportions and he has
now decided to build a new, modern
business block on the site or the old
While the old house was not the first
postoffice in Minneapolis, it was among
the many temporary buildings which
were occupied by the mail department
during the seventies. The first postof
fice was on Main street and the late Ed
ward Patch was then postmaster. That
was in the fifties. Later the postoffice
was removed to the Winslow house,
which stood where the International
auditorium building now is. As a po
lice station and^gaiij-fhe old house was
quite famous, and *he boys of olden division,
days remember "it Us one of the most ^^y,^,,^
interesting places. It had two
and to the great consternation of the
youthful generation of over thirty years
ago, a tramp once set fire to his cell,
with a view of escaping.
Where tfte old house came from is a
question on which the pioneer residents
do not agree. But the probability is
that it is one of the old houses moved
from Main street to Central avenue.
G. Healy has made the plans for
the new Dyke block. It is to
be a handsome attd thoroly modern
structure in every respect. Pressed
brick veneer will be used for the outer
walls and stone sills and trimmings will
add a touch of the ornamental. The
building is to be 25x80 feet, and will
be erected at a cost of about $10,000.
On the ground floor will be the fine,
large store of Mr. Dyke and the "two
upper floors will contain, two four an'd
two five-room flats. Every modern con
venience and appliance will be used in
the building, such as hot water heat,
electricity and gas. Handsome hard
wood floors and woodwork will be used
in finishing the interior, an'd the plan
of making it one of the fine and up-to
date structures on lower Central avenue
will be followed out in every detail.
Mr. Dyke has been a resident of Cen
tral avenue for the past twenty-Cn'a
years. For some time he worked^ for
the firm of Weeks, harness makers. A
few years after that he bought out the
firm and continued in business for him
self, zig-zagging within that block for
twenty years, changing his place from
122 Central avenue to 119 Central ave
nue an to 120 Central avenue.
EAST SIDE LODGES
Nicollet lodge, 16 A. O. U. W. will
hold its twenty-eighth anniversary
meeting Tuesday evening, in the lodge
hall on- Central avenue. Representa
tives of the grand lodge will be present
and visit the lodge members for that oc
casion. W. B. Anderson of Winona,
grand past master workman and Charles
Larson, St. Paul, grand recorder, and
others have signified their intention of
coming. J. W. Hammett is master
workman of lodge 16, and will preside
at the meeting. A large class of new
members will be installed and the affair
will close with a banquet.
Friday evening, Nicollet lodge, D. of
H., 47, installed a class of twenty-nine
new members. The grand recorder,
Francis Buell Olson of St. Paul and the
gran receiver, Mrs. Addie Baker, were
present and took part in the impressive
installation ceremonies. The degree
staff under Captain Mary Conahan ex
emplified the work. After the pro
gram refreshments were served.
For several months a pleasant spirit
of rivalry has been existing between
Minneapolis council, R. A., and Jtasca
council, R. A., as to which council
would get the most new members before
May I. Itasca council came out a
winner in the amicable contest and re
ceived the rewarda sumptuous ban
quet Wednesday evening. This had
been agreed upon at the time the two
councils entered in the contest. Min
neapolis council bore defeat gracefully
and served a meal which did credit to
its reputation as host. Covers were
laid* for about three hundred, and after
the banquet there followed a program
of witty toasts and remarks. Short
addresses were made by Grand Regent
Walker of St. Paul. Past Grand Re
gent Frank L. Palmer spoke, and other
speakers were Regent Kohl of Minne
apolis council, who had also arranged
the delightful program for the eve
ning Regent Higgins of Itasca council
ancl Past Regent C. H. Wingate of
Minneapolis council. Minneapolis
council is one of the North Minneapo
lis organizations and the banquet was
given in the large lodge hall on Wash
ington avenue N. The winning council
acquired an addition to its membership
list of twenty-five.- defeating the other

NEED A COMMERCIAL CLUB
East Minneapolis Business Men Con
sider Permanent Club Home.
East Minneapolis merchants and
manufacturers feel the necessity of a
club such as the Commercial club. The
continual growing interests north and
southeast make such a move advisable,
and after a rough canvass of the field,
already several hundred prominent
business men in the wholesale and re
tail trade have signified their willing
ness to take their part as members.
While Northeast Minneapolis business
men have been talking over the ques
tion, southeast and central business
men have been doing the same, and
it is hoped now to bring the two fac
tors together and start a wefl-organ
ized and flourishing commercial club.
A suitable site on Central avenue is
already considered for that purpose and
everything points in favor of the idea.
A club would give a home to business
men during the day-and office hours,
a place where they could entertain
callers and professional guests, where
they could step in for luncheon, and
where they could enjoy the social com
forts of a home. At present the plan
is Still somewhat immature, but further
steps will be taken at a meeting of
all the East Minneapolis associations
composed of business and professional
