Chicago, III, Sept. . Chur. h fairs are
not uncommon things in Kiars'on, but the
membe-s of a certain congregation are par
ticularly interested In a piece of handiwork
that is to bo rafllcd for the beneiit of that
thtirch with which they are connected.
Of course, this article is no ordinary sofa

tipal places of worship In Evanston. and it
Is in this church that a bnnquet.ng cloth,
embroidered In American beauty rose, that
is ,i masterpiece in linen and silk, will b
shown The cloth is th work of J. S. Clark.
Ard there the secret of the interest taken
in this piece of work Is out! It was a man
who worked In those beautiful roses, and a
prominent artist at that.
Up to ten years ago Mr. Clark painted tho
most perfect of flowers on cam as. but then
a stroke of p-iraljsls left his right hand so
disabled that he could not handle the bruh
as skilifiiliv as formerly. In a. moment of
longing tn'bhadc and blend colors the uie.i
came to him to work out hit creations in
Mik. Acting upon tha inspiration of the
, moment he picked up a pice "f his wifi -i
fancy w-oik. upon which there wa.s a i.e.-lgn

With all the skill of an artist, and the re
Ut was most satisfactory. After this ho
tcok up other pieces of embroidery and ic
sTted the most elaborate patterns.

The completion of the banqueting cloth is
