A new Christ Congregational Church,
picturesquely placed on the Boulevard and
Grand Concourse. The Bronx, was opened
for the first time for services yesterday.
The pastor is the Rev. Dr. Henri* B. Brown.
The church is a bit of Colonial New Eng

the Concourse and is visible for at least a
mile in both directions.
The new churr-h stands on ■ plot irregu

ing cost 355.000. On *'■•" north is the par
sonage, a fine eleven room dwelling, and on
the south a parish house, with large Sun
day school room.
Christ congregation dates from UK. For
many years it worshinpd in 175 th street
and Topping avenue, in a small frame
building. It has an actual membership of
two hundred and a growing Sunday school.

Patrolman on Guard at Services
in New Edifice in The Bronx.
To the strains of an old hymn, played
on a. small organ, and a prayer for peace
in the community. Calvary Lutheran
Church, at No. I£3 Cedar avenue, was
opened yesterday morning-. The little
wooden building, known as the "spite
church." was erected as a result, it is
said, of the rivalry of two saloonkeepers
in The Bronx. The owning services were
conducted by the Rev. George C. Loose.
For some time the liquor trade in the
neighborhood of Cedar avenue and 177 th
street, near which the new building stands.
baa been divided between Henry Eamman,
whose place la at No. 1822 Cedar avenue,
and Patrick J. Murphy, who has a hotel
and saloon at the northwest corner of iTTtli
street and Cedar avenue. Of late, neigh
borhood gossip has it. things have not been
pleasant between Mr. Bamman and his
competitor; in fact, there has been ■ break
Cf friendly ties.
There is a law which forbids the keep
ing of a saloon within M feet of a church.
There could be no more effective way of
putting a rival out of business than build
ing one near enough to him to compel him
t» close up when his license ran out. Now.
the property upon which the new congrega
tion will pray belongs to Mr. Murphy. He
vigorously denies any attempt on his part
to bother Bamman.
Mr Bammar. has asserted that the
structure was erected to force him out of
business, and he is angry. He has threat
ered to induce his brother-in-law to build
a church on property he owns across the
street from Murphy's hotel.
When Calvary church opened its doors
yesterday it was guarded by patrolmen
»-nt to 'quell ny disorder. There was
nothing out of the ordinary about the ser
vices: in fact, many who came in expecta
tion of trouble remained to pray.

Rector. Barred Previous Sunday,
Holds Usual Services.
The Rev Dr. William N. Acklev. rector
of St. Andrew's Church, 50th street and
Fourth avenue, Brooklyn, again gained ad
mission to the church yesterday, and
preached to one of the largest crowds that
ever filled the edifi. The two wardens
and seven vestrymen who attempted to
dismiss Dr. Ackley were also present, and
for the time everything seemed harmoni
Dr. Ackley had obtained an injunction
from Justice Garretson. in the Supreme
Court. Brooklyn, restraining th« wardens
and vestrymen from interfering with his
preaching and holding services in the
church as usual. To make doubly sure,
many of the clergyman's sympathizers
gained entrance to the church some time
on Saturday night, removed the lock which
was put on by the wardens and vestry
men, forcing Dr. Ackley- to preach on the
lawn the previous Sunday, and put on
another lock, the key of which was
turned over to the rector.
Dr. Ackl^y cave the key to Edward Rob
pom. the sexton, and told him to permit
any one to enter the church who had a
reasonable right there. All the services,
as well as the Sunday school, were held
as usual. Tb* wardens and vestrymen

day, when the injunction is returnable.
T/inc before the early services were heM
yesterday morning the church was filled
to its capacity. Many of the congregation

held at 10:43 o'clock

Burg-ess Is fully In sympathy with him.
and the rector has his hearty support in
thp matter, according to statements given
out last week.
The Rev. Dr. Carter Criticises the
Religious Press.
At the opening of the Madison Avenue
Reformed Church after the summer vaca
tion yesterday morning the pastor, the. Rev.
Dr. William Carter, said that not only
were. many churches getting away from
the Idea of showing the personal Christ in
their work, but that many religious peri
odicals were doing the same thing.
Dr. Carter said, in part:
"The Church is not the only one to blam*
in this, but the religious press also. The
old family religious newspaper is now be
coming a great literary magazine and some
times—save the mark— a semi-political
magazine. Great editors are chosen at
enormous salaries without regard to their
religious qualifications, but merely in re
gard to their literary or. political prom
inence, as in one notable case.
"Special trains are run across the coun
try, a corps of press agents is taken along,
a general political and newspaper advertis
ing campaign made out of it, indeed, and
all at the instigation and expense of what
is supposed to be a religious paper. As I
read all the accounts of this late remark
able trip I wonder if that same paper
would hire a special train and pay all the
expenses of a world-wide evangelist like
'Gypsy' Smith to go across this great
continent to preach Jesus Christ and try to
save the souls of men!"

Explosion Will Not Check the
Use of Petroleum as Fuel.
[From The Tribune Bureau. 1
Washington. September 18. .
EXPLOSlON".— Deplorable as it was. the
accident on the battleship North Dakota.
resulting from an explosion of oil. will not
be permitted to check the development of
the use of petroleum as an auxiliary fuel on
naval vessels. The deafening officers of the
department feel that in the course of ex-
periments accidents are Inevitable in the at- i
tempt to use an explosive fuel, just as in |
the case of developing gunpowders and
high explosive?. The department already j
lias pointed out that the North Dakota's oil
burning plant was a reproduction of those j
used in some foreign navies. As a matter
of fact no less than fifty ships, large and
small, are fitted with these burners, and th
wonder is that some similar accident here
tofore has not occurred among them. .The
lesson learnt d in the case of the North
Dakota is that the settling tank, containing
four hundred gallons of oil. should at once
be removed from the flreroom to some con
venient place where any small leakage
from it would not be exposed to heat suffi
cient to set the oil afire. Such a leakage,
either from a defective pipe or a broken
I glass gauge, occurred on the North Dakota,
, and unfortunately the tank was so situated
over the highly heated boiler top that the
; escaping oil flashed into flame.
—Efforts of the last few weeks to dislodge
] the projectile which remained in the 12-inch
! gun after the premature explosion at Fort
: Monroe on July 21 have resulted in failure,
and It now looks as though the removal of
the stubborn projecting will prove a difficult
problem for the coast artillery. When the
■ breech block was blown backward among
: the men who were firing the gun the pro
jectile wa * hurled forward 11 feet and 9
inches from the mushroom head of the
; breech Mock. There it has stuck ever
i since as 'tightly as if it were an integral
! part of the powerful gun. A uw breech
block has been fitted to the gun and at
' tempts-have been made to dislodge the
j projectile by small powder charges. These
j have been ineffectual, and the coast artil-
I lery is now looking around for another
method of removing the obstacle."
I ENGINEERS— Following a course adopted
| a year ago for the further training of the
i embryo engineer officers just graduated
from West Point, the War Department will
send to Rock Island. 111., within the next few
days the eleven members of the class of "10
who v.ere assigned to the engineer corps.
There they will study the engineer projects
in that vicinity and prepare theses on the
j inspection, for submission to their superiors.
; The stay at Rock Island will be concluded
j OR October 20, when the eleven officers will
go to Memphis to spend the time between
that date and November 15 in studying en
gineering work at that place. On Novem
ber IS they will start for Panama, to be
on the isthmus until June IS, 1911. After
their return to the United States they will
go to Pittsburg to study Ohio River im
provements, and later— about a year from
this time— they will return to Washington
for a year's instruction in constructive
The fifteen members of the class of '09
assigned to the. engineer corps have just re

It was the first of its kind, and officials

Of Interest to tOomen
Lovely Effects Produced by
Their Use in New Models.
Still the fashion of veiling: anything and
everything with a transparent fabric grows,
and many are the charming effects pro
duced by this means. The designer* seem
to aim at bavins in each one of their crea
tions as many delicate gradations of tone
as possible, and when they have a bit of
exquisite material to use they see that it
shows itself in several guises, so that none
rt its beauty shall be wasted. If it reveals
itself openly to the eye at one moment, at
the next it disappears under sorrt»» diapha
nous covering, which may itself. be, tucked,
pleated or folded so as to produce different
degrees of transparency.
Some of the new gowns have simple '•''
chiffon tunics of about knee length that are
knife pleated all over and produce enchant
ing effects of light and shade. One such
model had an under robe of black velvet,
which was trimmed about half way down
the skirt and around the bottoms of the
short sleeves with wide bands of Irish
crochet in a conspicuous pattern. This dec
oration was delightful under the softening
influence of a pleated chiffon tunic in navy
blue that completely covered it."
Veilings are occasionally Introduced In
ways that are somewhat surprising to the
lay mind- One instance of this was In a
fur trimmed bat and muff shown in a 34th
street shop. In the muff the lovely black
and gold brocade that was combined with
the fur was veiled with black chiffon. while
in the hat It was left uncovered. The aver
age individual attempting to make a hat
and muff to match would probably think it
necessary to veil both or neither, but evi
dently the masters hold a different opinion.
In the trained evening gown illustrated Is
shown the use of many tones veiled and
unveiled The foundation is of periwinkle
blue satin.'and the tunic of net In a brighter
blue is embroidered with beads and tubes of.
gold and silver. A rlchu of cream point
d'Alenc.on and rose tinted ribbon drapes the
corsage and is partly veiled by the tunic.
The other gown is of dark blue chiffon,
embroidered with wooden beads In differ
ent shades of the same color.
They Are Modem Devices and Are
Commonly Called Chairs.
There is one home in New York that Is
thoroughly enjoyed by all of its occupants
for the reason that its mistress never
overlooks any one of the multitudinous lit
tle things that an to the making of physi
cal comfort. When this woman, whose
family with one accord calls her blessed,
saw some of those Instruments of tor
ture commonly called chairs going into
an apartment house across the way not
lons ago she was so stirred by the spec
tacle that she poured forth a flood of lan
guage on the subject, in which were many
suggestions that should be useful to those
expecting to furnish new homes this au
tumn or to refurnish old ones.
•More uncomfortable chairs," she
groaned: "what a lot there are of them!
And they're made In so many forms:
"There is the chair with the low back
that ends just where the support is most
needed, the chair with the hish seat that
should be sold only with a footstool, and
the chair with the carved back that should
be accompanied by a head rest to soften
the rampant Hod or bunch of grapes or
leaves It always displays at the top. on a
line with the occupants cranium. The
arms are generally wrong, too— either too
high or so low that they are absolutely
useless. Some chairs are so deep and wide
In the seat that a cushion is necessary to
fill out the space, and some have backs
that are. away out of line and throw the
body too far forward. Mission furniture
is good to look at. but that's often all that
can be said in its favor, as far as the chairs
are concerned. They are very likely to
be so big no one would ever dream they
were intended to accommodate ordinary
human beings.
"In most cases the seats of chairs are
too and those of davenports and are
i«h and thOM of davenports an.l Mt
tens too wide and too low. The most sat
isfactory furniture makers are thos« of the
Colonial period, tot they were masters ° r
ease and comfort. Chairs were well pro
portioned and their sofas and davenports
could be enjoyed without the help of pil
lows. Imitations of them are ■■■■■■AT
dismal failures, for while they may have
a few of the original graceful lines they
lack the essential comfort.
#> If there's one place more than another
where comfort should relsn supreme Its
in the dining room, but dining room chairs
are the worst of all. It li hard enough
to feign comfort In a fragile gold chair
during a short call, but it's agony to hay©
to sit on a slippery leather chair of wrung 1
proportions during a lane course dinner.
"No woman .should ever risk her success
as a hostess by keeping a single uncom
fortable chair In her house."

Few caro to resist such a tempter as the
crystal punch bowl, when filled with a tem
perance punch that has hidden in its
depths all sorts of delectable surprises,
such as glace cherries and candied pieces
of lime 'and pineapple.
A huge block of ice with a bis cavity cut
Into it from the top and 'partly hidden In
flowers Is the ideal punch now!, for the ice
is especially refreshing to look at. It is
unfortunate that" It is Impracticable for
everyday use.
When it comes to the concoction of tem
perance punches one's fancy can run riot
without harm, and the more of a medley
on» makes the more delicious the punch
Is likely to b*>. Grapefruit is often used in
a punch of the temperance variety. Add
about a pint or more of this fruit juice,
sweetened, to thre* of boiling water. Stir
the mixture until the sugar hi thoroughly
dissolved and set it on ic= to chill. Car
bonated water may lx» added to enhance
Its attractiveness, and preserved cherries
and squares of pineapple may be used as a
decoration. Later on. when white grapes
and kumqi'ats are plentiful, they. too. may
be used, after cutting hi half and seeding.
A grape punch is delicious and poetic,
and at this rim" of the year one, can enjoy
it often. The punch bowl may b** encircled
with a wreath of grape leaves and a few
bunches of. different colored grapes, if one
desires a festiv<»-«pf)«»avance. One way of
making this punch is by adding a quart of
grape juice to a pint of lemonade. Pour
the mixture over cracked ice and decorate
with a sliced orange, a aii.-ed lemon and
some squares of pineapple.
A grape punch may also he prepared with
carbonated water. Use rive or six lemons,
or as many as desired, to a quart of grape
juice an.i add enough syrup to sweeten It
to suit the taste. Lei the- mixture stand for
several hours, or over night, in the Icebox
to become thoroughly blended. "When ready
to serve add the carbonated water in what
ever proportion is preferred. Then pour It
over cracked lee Into the punch bowl.
Orange juice is sometimes added in a. small
proportion, and a few squares of pineapple
as a garnish.
A berry punch may be made from pre
served or canned fruits. Mash a quart of
the fruit and squeeze it through a bag",
using blackberries, strawberries or rasp
berries. Add enough of the juice of lemons
or oranges to suit the taste. A small quan
tity is usually preferred, and a trifle more
of the orange than of the lemon. Pour the
mixture, after thinning it with water, over
a block of ice ,in a punch bowl or pitcher.
Add a few slices of orange and some pre
served cherries.
