Thomas said that some of the statements in the APPE VL, concern ing Olivet church meeting were untrue. We told Mr. Thomas that the statements were published just as they were given by members of the church. The APPEAL endeavors to treat everybody fairly and would not willfully misrepresent any one. We must say to the persons who have been giving information that they should be truthful and not place the paper in a wrong light, by misreprenting facts. "Some of this matter is true, but thesegmembers weave in a few lies, and if we knew who they are, we would make short work of them in the church." said Rev. Thomas.

The "High Tea" by the Ladies Auxil- liaryofSt. Thomas church took place last Friday evening at Jackson Park. The park is an immense tract of ground on the lake front, extending from 56th to 68th street, reached by Hyde Park cable and Illinois Central railroad. The tea was advertised to take" place from 4 to 11 o'clock^in the pavilion. A few of the faithful gathered at the appointed time. About 5 o'clock there was a ter rific rainstorm which lasted about half an hour, when it cleared off and a beau tiful night followed. The ladies arranged their oil stove and began to boil water for the tea, when the park policeman came and informed them that no fire could be allowed in the pavilion, so the "High Tea" went on without any tea, except a few cups which had been made before the arrival of the copper. About 8 o'clock the cable broke down and the majority of the people did not reach the park until after 10 o'clock, when they came crowding into the pavilion from all sides, rushing over Rev. Thompson, the only man stationed at any of the en trances. On, on they came, wildly, madly, pushing, scrambling and a large number forgetting to purchase tickets. The pavilion was so crowded that it was almost impossible to dance itb. any comfort, but dance they did, as soon as the band began to play. In the midst oi the festivities out went the calcium light, leaving the pavilion iu utter dark ness. The professor in charge of the light announced that it would be neces sary to extinguish it for a few minutes to fix it in someway, but owing to the noise, the annonncement was heard by only a few, so, when the light went out, some of the ladies began to scream, the boys yelled "where was Moses when the light went out?" and it is even said that arms shpned around waists *and kisses were stolen, but the APPEAL saw none of that. Some of the crowd who had paid nothing, were very indignant because they did not have tea served in eggshell china and free ice cream. Several per sons were lost in the park and with dif ficulty found their way to the cars. Some ladies got in the park ali light, but could not find the pavilion. Jackson Park is a tract of several thousand acres and in the daikness it was quite easy for a per son to lose his way. The cars do not run very late on that line, and quite a number were compelled to walk eight or ten miles to reach their homes. The conduct of some of the rough bojsand men on the cars going to and coming fioin the park was scandalous. They guyed each other, cursed, used vile lan guage, climbed on top of the cars and ren dered themselves generally obnoxious to lespectable people. The ladies who had charge of affairs realized 50 for the church, notwithstanding the many diffi culties under which they labored. A gentleman who had been appointed tick et taker arirved about 11 o'clock just as the lights were being put out. He had lost his wav and had wandered about the park for two hours without being able to find the pavilion. Mrs. J. Alexander of Cincinnati is vis iting Mrs. Frank Foster.

W3-_ We present this week a cut of the front elevation of the new St. Peter's A. M. E. church now building on Twenty second street between Ninth and Tenth avenues south. The organization has had an eventful career since its organization three years ago. While truly a mission in the sense of reaching a class who rarely attend services elsewhere, it has been compelled to rely upon the people served for support. Not one dollar has it ever received from any church or society. The building is in the Gothic style, 40x74 feet, finished in oak. The seating capacity is 450. There is a large basement, with Sunday School class rooms. The cost of the structure, including the lot will be about $7,500. The contract calls for its completion by Sept. 15. The building committee, consisting of Rev. L. H. Reynolds the pastor John L. Neal, C. C. Carter, R. C. Marshall and G. W. Turner, is mak ing an effort to raise $1,500 bv subscrip tions. C. G. Goodiich, C. W, Mason ,R. H. Jones, Col. Geo. C. Ripley. S. C. Gale, Col. Snider, R. B. Langdon and several other gentlemen have contribut ed quite liberally.

It is pretty certain that the coming man will be bald if he continues to wear tight hats,and toothless if he continues to liye upon soft food and certainly near sighted if he continues to live in cities and only use his eyes upon near objects. But there will be other change-* easily foreshadowed by the present drift of events. Faith in revulsive measures wv^$&r^w&. and medicines for the sick is now aimost a thing of the past. Change of habits, change of food, and the use of specifics are now seen to be better. Change of the kind of food upon which we live, and the plentiful use of hot waterthe one to build up new tissue and the other to wash out and eliminate waste and defective tissue, with the mildest use of the atomic specific does the work. Thus new tissue is formed the old and waste is passed offthe system isre juvinated and a new lease of life given Lives become longer, health more vigorous and better assured. All the revulsed medicines are seen to be waste ful of life and upon vitality. Humphreys' Specifics have been doing this pioneer work for a generation and when it is a&ked "will the coming man take med icine?" It may be promptly answered "not much."
