SPECIALS AT FORMER SttM NOW CHURCrt Remarkable Transformation for Which the Congregation la Very Liter ally Responsible. Tho Bronx, Now York's famous res idential section, ling a homo-made church. It began life as a saloon In the period antedating the year 1, A. V. (ante Volstead). Then followed a spell as a billiard parlor. Rov. A. V. Vos, an Episcopal clergyman, next appeared upon the scene. Ho rented the ox-saloon, organized a congrega tion, and with a big shoc-ciise for an altar and a dozen rude benches for the accommodation of his flock, which In cluded Germans, Italians, Hungarians, Irish and Americans, the Initial serv ice was held. In course of time thv Uttlo congregation Increased to nbout fifty, bought the place, paid oft tho debt In sums of $15 and $20 nt a time and nt length laid aside a reserve fund. And this Is what they did with It : Including In their number carpen ters, bricklayers, cement workers, oloctrlcians, etc., they had a chuurch meeting, purceled out the work among themselves, and on the night of December 8 last they begaru tear ing out the front of the building. Each night thereafter, as soon ns sup per was disposed of, the volunteer workers got buck on tho Job nnd by working every night save Sunday sometimes well Into tho morning they hnve succeeded In making over tho place Into a pretty little concrete edifice of the old Spanish mission type. It includes not only the chapel proper, but a dining hall, social hall, kitchen, etc. Rev. Mr. Voss says: "It Isn't a cathedral, but to us It Is tho finest church building In the world becuuso we havo reared It with our own hands." Plans aro being formed for tho consecration of tho building by Bishop. Manning at an early date. :o:- CARD OF THANKS Wo tako this means ot extending our slnccro thanks to tho old friends of our family and tho now friends who wero tfo kind nnd helpful to us In tho death and burial of our father, tho lato Franklin Peale.

CALL TUESDAY UNLUCKY DAY Members 0f the Greek Church Have Reasons to Look Upon It With Misgivings. Tq most persons of western tradi tion .Friday Is more or less considered to be an unlucky day. Many of them prefer not to say this straight out, but; icy aro a bit wary of starting any largo 'enterprise on a Friday. Tho ldea,may come from tho fact that for so many people Friday Is held as a fast day and great Interest In purely secular pursuits should be held some what In abeyance. The old Norse peas antry, give a .different explanation. "To begin a. big thing on a Friday leads to a great temptation to break tho Sabbath," Is tho way one old grand mother puts It. To most members of the Greek church It Is not Friday, but Tuesday that Is tho most unlucky day. The reason Is clearcut and historical, for It wus on this day thata Tuesday, In 1453 Constantinople was lost to the eastern cmplro und passed under the control of tho Turks.
