Miss Carr'e Brown, who resides
at 1003 11th st., n. w. eloped last
Monday evening with Andrew
Paul, a member of the Washing

Mr Paul has been visiting Miss
Carrie against the protest of
her parents and he had on several
occasions asked the parents of Miss
Browne for her, who objected and
forbid him to come to the house.
This not suiting the lady whose
love for Paul, was greater than her
parents dislike, determined to set
tle the question in a manner not at
all complimentary to her mother.
Miss Carrie had frequently in
formed her friends that she intend
ed to elope with the choice of her
affections and to convince all of
what she had asserted she and her
dear Paul, eloped and were mar
ried last Monday. Miss Brown is a
young lady some what symmetri

greater respectability; darker com

greater pride. We will then have
grown stronger intellectually, be

Stronger religiously because we
will have comprehended better
things; and pride ourselves more
for ability than we will have bor

A HARVES I' HUME.
REV. A. J. ANSERSON'S UNIQUE EN
TERTAINMENU. A DEPARTURE
FROM CONCERT &C.
The harvest home at the Gai
braith A. M. E. Zion church
proved a brilliaut success in every
particular. Upwards of 230 was
realized and the entertainment
was undoubtedly the finest ever
given in the history of that church
and the first of its kind in this
city. The church was beautifully
decorated in the most exquisite
taste and unique design faithfully
representing ihe harvest time.
Trie appropriate distribution of
green festooning of crowfoot and
strong cranberries, interspersed
with wreaths, crosses, anchors and
a variety of designs in evergreens
and autumn leaves, and agricul
tural implements illustrating each
stage of the season from seed time
to harvest, the grand harvest ta
ble containing almost every con
ceivable product known to the
community, tastefully and ele
gantly arranged. The floral dis
play and the rural cedar grove in
which the queens were enthroned
were all noticeable features.
The programme as printed was
faithfully adhered to, only three
selection being omitted out of
thirty eight numbers. The queens
were Misses Bessie Campbell,
Lottie Maruder, Ella Jackson
and Minerva Anderson. They
were appropriately and elegantly
attired, and well received. The
singing by the Sunday school and
the old folks concert by the choir
were especially remarkable as was
the essay on the harvest by Mi?s
Sarah Jennifer and the character
istic Bongs of Mr. Plummer. Miss
Arnold presided with dignity and
grace at the organ. The drill by
Rev. Anderson's two little bovs
by their father brought the house
down. They executed 97 move
ments in the silent drill without
a mistake. Miss Hattie Ander
son acquitted herself well as a
songstress. Such entertainments
as theae rise above the ordinary
and are elevating, and the public
) appreciation was such ae to manifest
itself in ciowds every evening.
Rev. Anderson and his committee
deserve special mention for their
departure from ordinary enter
tainments in this city. The
church was crowded every even
