Coppin, Bishop E. V. Lamp- ton, Mr. Ira T. Bryant, Rev. and Mrs. V. W. Beckett, Prof, and Mrs. 11. T Ktaling, and Dr. and Mrs. V. A. Lewis. The people of Chicago made many 1 andsome and valuable presents too numerous to mention. The delegation from Tennessee and Alabama were the special guests of the Parks home during their stay in the city. The vistors were made to feel that they were the ones being honored by "he manner in which the people of Chicago showered their hospitality upon them. Every one has only words of praise to express. They were shown :ho sights of a great city and those who had never visited th? Western Metropolis before are still exclaiming that "the half has never been told." The party returning readied home Friday morning buoyant and enjoying good health. Bishop II. B. Parks is the Bishop of the Twelfth Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, which consists of Tennessee and Ala 1 ama. That he is very popular in his district and throughout the country at large is best attested by the number of presents and congratulations re ceived from all sections. His admin istration in the twelfth district has met the hearty approval of the mem bers of his church in the states of Alal"ama and Tennessee and the peo Vie irrespective )of religious affilia tions, look upon him as a safe leader. He i3 aggressive, yet conservative; ! crsistcnt but conside nte. As a Gos pel preacher and scholar he has few equals and no superior. Bishop Parks is wide awake to the educational needs in his church, and has infused new energy into the memlers and friends nf the connection in Tennessee and Uabama. This state has a school at Shelbyville, and in Alabama Payne Theological Seminary ,U located at Selma. Bishop Parks byheroi? efforts wa3 able to secure the co operation of the ministers of his church in Ten nessee to a pledge to raise $5,000.00 ! y Spring to erect a new bri"k building it the Shelbyville school. The largest ' uilding there now is a two-story f ame structure. The president, Dr. .'. A. Jones, reported at the last an--ual conferences in the state that the buildings were not sufficient to accom modate the pupils in the previous year, it may be expected that the inade quacy will be even g-eat this year, ""he peonle have great confidence in bishop Clark's leadership and are ral 'ving to his support in all his church 'vork, and they were proud to honor Mm on the occasion of the celebration f the twenty-fifth anniversary of his wedded life. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN Whereas. In calling the roll of Lightfcot Lodge No. 17 K. of P. we find that the Supreme Ruler of the Hniverse has severed from our midst 'hree honorable and most worthy Knights in the persons of Brothers Knights Ed Walker, Sam Ellison and Whitiuy White. But in view of the fart that there is yet a heavier loss sustained by those who were nearest and dearest to them; be it Resolved, That it is but a just trib ute to the memory of our departed Knights to say that in regretting their removal from our midst we mourn for them who were in every way worthy of our respect, and be it fur ther Resolved, That we sincerely condole the family of the deceased on the dis rersation which it has pleased Divine Providence to bring upon them, and commend them for consolation to Him who orders all things for the bwt. and vhose chastisements are in mer cy, nnd 1 e it further Resolved.

The management rf the. Economi "al Laundry Company is always voking to the best interests of the "blic. This enterprise was started few years ago under adverse cir "iristances, but by determined men, men who have race pride and were villing to make every sacrifice 'n their power to remove from heir people one of the most infamous insults ever perpetra ted upon human beings. A few ears ago several of the laundry com panies in this city decided that it would be a good advertising scheme '0 deceive the white people by adver tising on their wagons that they did 11 1 take Negro washing and they lid so advertise, but they never did dep taking Negroes' clothes in their offices, and their rragons solicited 'mm the homes of Negroes. The In ult remained, however hypocritical. The saying that it is an ill wind that Mows nobody gcod served to a good 'rpese in this cos?. A few deter mined Negro men decided that the -ecessity for any Negro going to a vhite man's laundry for anything "list, be removed. They started with ornctically every one in the plant Treen. Many restless nights were -pent and many socrificos made. The loomy days havo come thick and rast, but amid all the adversities that "ome to the mm in business they 'eve stuck to their post, and tho peo "'e will rejoice to leeirn that to-day ti e Economical Laundry is on a bet er running basis than it has ever T,een. They have recently secured the nsociation of Mr. Nelson, who i conducted the Chicago Laundry in w!ist Nashville frr so many years. Mr. Nelson is the best lemndryman in "'is city. TTp- has a large number of friends and patrens who will be too ?l:id to carry him their work at tho Economical Laundry. This laundry is to be complimented for its fine judgment in securing Mr. Nelson with their company. He will have pbfolut0 control of all the work. Fvervthing will pass imder his scru tinizinc: eyes before going to the pub lic whieh is n guarantee that the pa trons of the Economical Laundry will always be satisfied. MARRIAGES.
