Ji-te drew a striking picture of the e-hureh
i divided, i n one lde would be the sa

there would not be a single good woman or
child. They would lie on the side of the
church. The Christian people Were urged
to take their stand against Intemperance,
dancing, tin theater and the euchre club
and all that defiles. . , ,
At the close of the sermon Dr. Urooks de
livered tho following farewell to bis
"I have added about 800 members to this
church duilnir my pastorate of two nnd
i ne-hnlf years, many of whom have be
come among the most earnest and faithful
members or the church. I have added to
the little band or Kndouvorers which I
found when I came, until they have be
i otne tho best society In the state and uro
now the most earnest workers In every de
pigment of Christian life. I want to ay
of them that, with few exceptions, they
have Riven tne their most hearty support
ever since I came to the city. The Wom
an's Aid Society, under the management of
Mr, llrooks. Its president, has become u

surpassed that of any minister you have

"The lio.ird of the church, after my re
lcnatloii, iMissed the following, as commim
b ated to me through their clerk:
" 'June 23, 1W7.
" Hrother John A. ltrook. 1'imtor of Lin
den Street Christian Church.
" '.My Dear Hrother: Ily the unanimous
vote of the official board of this church, I
nm directed to express to you tho (,'reat
love and high c-'teem In which you are held
by this board. Your labors have been great
nnd effective for the upbuilding of this
church and for the Master's cause In this
.community. Wherever your lot may be
cast, you carry with you the entire con II
! nee of th's board, who, olllclaily nnd Indl-
idunlly, desire to cheerfully bear witness
to your ability as a preacher, your effect
iveness as a pastor and your purity of per
sonal life nml conduct. Done by order of
the board. WHAltTON S. JONES.
' "Clerk I.lnden Street Christian Church.'
"After all this, you ask me why I have
resigned. I can only answer that, owing1
to conditions which existed before I came,
and whleh I have been unable to remove,
1 feci that I must change my relations,
and hence leave to-nlghl fur my new Held
of labor. When will you all learn what a
f i w earnest souls so well know that the
best way to secure the best
work from those In places of peculiar
responsibilities and perplexities is Just to
lovingly and sympathetically surround
them with an atmosphere of good cheer,
i onfklenco and encouragement. It Is true
th it we are able to do to a largo degree what
those about us make us to feel is easily
possible for us to achieve. Ood help you
nil and bring you up to the divine standard
and put you In position to triumph for
Christ and Ills cause, I sincerely love you
all and would do nil In my power to make
ou perfect In Christ. I want now to say n.
few general things:
"I am profoundly grateful to the press
of Memphis for the uniform kindness and
i ourtesy they have extended to me. We
have differed many times In our views,
but never have they, by word or deed.
departed .from the path of courtesy.
'I would also jjlve thanks to all the
pastors of this city for their uniform
kindness and courtesy. My brethren are
f.-w In this city in comparison with
theirs, but they, this year, unanimously
hose me us the president of their nsso
i i.ulon. For this mark of confidence and
rsieein I return, thus publicly, my sln
i ere gratitude, and express In parting ns
one of rny greatebt regrets the separation
To my Masonic ureturen i want to ox
tind my thanks for numerous honors con
ferred, and my sincere desire for their
continued prosperity and success.
"And now, brethren. In conclusion, I
rmut, lefer to the wonderful Increase In
tho missionary work of this church.
Since I cime you huve started three mis
sionary points in the city, nil of which
have been attended With great succsbs,
and you will pardon me If I claim an In
ttrest In each of them. And now, my
brethren, farewell. There Is no reason
why this church should not attain to the
highest Chrlstlun standard, for in it are
some of the best nun and women t have
ever known. And now, to my faithful
and devoted choir. J'atlently and con
stantly, without temuneratlun, you haye

The lop of ft face powder 1t. hundred!
of pins, ckittens of piece of lead pencil 1th
ihowcl ends, sevtral faded bouquets, pile
of unused mahitscrliit and Ungerlntt odor
of ptrfume is what the editorial force of
th- Journal found oh the desks hen work
was resumed jeterday by the regulars
nfler the Amnstonhtn Invasion. It wan the
debris of one day o( feminine domination
wher'of Vcstt-rilay's edition was the re
sult. It ion hardly be said that It was an
evidence of the "nc woman," of whteh o
much Is said nowadays, tor the work was
done by oome of the most womenly women
thnt can be found in the land.
Kor almost a week the olflce fofi" of the
Journal has been In a mild stage of ex
citement nml agitation because lh word
hud gone forth that the paper was (o be
given over to tho ladles for one day nnd oh
that day the "boys" could go fishing. The
Janitors caught the spirit of the occmslon
and for days th dusting brush and
broom were wielded with extra vigor In
order to give exerythlng a bright appear
ance when the ladles took charge. Heport
ers cleaned up th.fr desks and editorial
writers thoughtfully hid all the papers from
which they gleaned their best ideas. le
partmentnl chiefs took on anxious looks
fir fear they might be given credit for the
work that would appear In their columns
oh the eventful day, nnd only the elevator
man fplt perfpclly at ease, for he was
permltt-d to continue In his place.
Inst i actions were given on the night of
the 2d that all men tvero to b" tnbood on
tho 3d, and tho regulars were notified
that the presence of a man would be suf
ficient cause for dismissal, Wednesday
morning everything was in readiness, even
to the sharpenlna of the leal pencils,
which were pluced on the desks for the
use of the ladles, nnd th Invasion '.its nn
accomplished fact. Twenty-four voung la
dles occupied the reporters' room and n
dosen editorial writers (nva led th- sanc
tum and Its adjoining rooms. The desk of
the editor-in-chief was held a little less
s.icrcd than that of the other wrlters.possl
bly because It was somewhat better, and
was taken possession t,f by thre. la I'cs at
once who. contested for own' rshlu. The
managing editor's desk was alo .'.uppostd
to be especially desitiible and all h's ihet
Ished lares and pennies were ruthhssly
brushed aside to make room for face
powder bags, hair pins nnd those numer
ous other conromltants whlcn so to make
up the angelic forms of those who rule
by divine right.
True several of the ladles were n little
anxious about the accomplishment of
their self-appointed tasks nnd asked many
questions of the regulars before the event
ful day, but the great majority or them
took to the work ns If to tho manor horn,
one young lady was seen anxiously in
quiring ot the pnrngrnpher, with the os
sunuice that she would not give uway the
secrets of the olllce. Just what papers he
got most or his bright sayings from, while
another was very much worried because
she feared she would be called upon to
set type when she brought In her work.
It must be said far the editorial writers
that they had not the slightest f. nr us to
their ability to write something better
t'.iun usually ntiDeared In m-wsnatiers. and
It must be confessed that the editorial
page of yesterday's Journal Is an evident e
that their i ontldence was not misplaced,
t'nfortunately for the reportoiial staff, the
ruthless hand of the business olllce cap
tured the space to such nn extent that by
the time ''copy" was In there was no
room for If In the rorms. The managing
editor, however, looked It over yesterday
and gravely notified the regulars thnt It
was so much better than their copy that
It would be used even if it were a ilav or
two old when space was given It.
The midden advent of lady reporters in
various parts of the city took the people
so b surprise that as a rule thev lot-got
their usual caution and gave up news
without u protest. The government build
ing was especially fruitful, while the gen
ial railroad agents prepared copy In al
vunce In order to save time. To the
habitues of the race track the sight of
a young lady tn the reporter's box caused
a mild spasm, and it Is claimed thnt she
became so well versed In sporting nffnlrs
before she got through thnt she could tell
a "trnlght tip from a dend heat.
When the ambulance cull rang In nt
police headquarters the driver was
astounded to see the natty figure of the
new police reporter swing up by his side
as he dashed to the scene of an accident,
while the firemen had a similar experience
when responding to an iilarm. And so it
was all over the city. The reporters of
the other papers were saved from numer
ous humiliating "scoops" onl.v because of
the aforementioned lack of space and the
regulars who went fishing for n day are se
cretly glad because the work of their
quondam successors was not given pub
licity. Had a big prize fight, a dog fight, a
ghastlv murder or a big tire occurred the
reporters were ready to show that be
cause they wore dresses was no bar to
good newspaper work, and those who se
cured reservtd seats to the show In the
office believe that the young ladies were
perfectly competent to acceptably fill any
position nnd do the work ns well. If not
better, than any of the men who were
temporarily supplanted. The only dispo
sition shown by the young ladles that
would have driven the n gular cltv editor
Into a mild case of lim-Jams was the con
stant d"sln to run from desk to desk and
talk about the stories to be written. At
one time, at least so It is said, the local
room put on the appearance of a recep
tion or church festival, and there was
such a hum of conversation that the roar
of machinery was stilled while the rattle
of the cable par was entirely unnoticed
by the neighbors.
About midnight some benighted Individ
ual who had not heard of the new regime
wandered Into the local department with
nn Item, but was so frightened by the
present e of so many young ladles that ho
forgot what he came for and ignomlnl.iusly
