Three years ago an organization of women calling themselves the "Wom en's Home Missionary Union of the Presbytery of New Orleans" raised $15 to establish a Presbyterian Hoe pital. The desire for one appealed strongly to their pastor. He under took to get it, as part of his work. A small hospital was established. The patronage it soon gained and the crowds of the poor who flocked to its THE OLD MAIDS' CONVENTION. Under the above title the young ladies of the Methodist Church will render a most amusing and entertain ing programme on Friday evening of this week at the Masonic Hall. The young ladies will all be dressed in old time and queer costumes, and will pre sent a most picturesque and attract ive appearance. The entertainment bids fair to draw a very large audl ence. This Old Maids' Convention-s' who are terpsichorally inclined, and it goes without saying after glancing over the following committee that the evening will be most enjoyably spent. All invitations are strictly personal, and must be presented at ballroom door. The following committees are in charge: S. Boylan, chairman; W. Lilly, ex-ofcio; R. Vallette, W. Sew all, E. Brodtman, L. J. Nelson, R. G. Boylan, W. Gallinghouse, R. Williams, W. Lampton and W. Nolan. ORDINANCE PROBISITS THE HANGING OF SIGNS City Electrician Foster Olroyd has called Mayor Martin Behrman's atten tion to a clause of the building code, ordinance 6712, which declares that no signs shall hang over any public way, and suggests that the Mayor have the police watch for violations. Tbth only exceptions are flags and banners. "I do not think the ordinance will <be interpreted so as to force the re moval of such signs as are up at pres ent," said Mr. Olroyd. "I do not think the council intended the ordinance to have a retroactive effect." If enforced absolutely agairst all signs, future or present, the ordinance would change the appearance of the principal streets of the city. A large number of costly electrical signs would have to come down. tfre eclilie emphasised the necemsity of a larger establishment. Dr. Barr's work In securing the New Orleans Sanitarium will long be re membered, and will stand as a monu ment to his efforts. Dr. Barr and his assistants deserve praise for their suc cessful efforts. The Algiers Presbyterian Sabbath School is continually adding to its membership. Should the present increase in at rendered in Algiers about three years ago by the same young ladies, but it is said to be better than ever.

The ramp leading from the ferry house to Delaronde street; Delaronde street to Seguin street, Seguin street to Pelican aveneu and Pelican ave nue to the Mayor's residence were lavishly decorated with multicolored flags extending across the street, bunting covered many of the resi dences and lines of incandescent lights stretching from the ferry land ing to the Behrman residence made the vicinity gay and bright. A committee consisting of John Fitzpatrick, Judge Thomas Maher, J. P. Vezien, William Ward, Frank Hen ning and Albert Twickler journeyed to Dunbar to meet the incoming Louisville and Nashville train that bore the Mayor and his party home ward, and when the Canal street sta tion was reached many prominent persons, besides the Marching Club of Algiers, were on hand to welcome the city's chief executive. After es corting the Mayor to his residence, E. W. Burgis made a short address of welcome, thanking him for his efforts in behalf of New Orleans at Washington, and expressing the thanks of the community to those other ardent workers who did their best to aid the cause. Presented With Resolutions. The Mayor was then presented w!th the following resolutions: "To the Honorable Martin Behrman, Mayor of New Orleans: "Sir-Recognizing the worthy ef tort you have made and the faithful work you have performed in behalf of New Orleans and its people in their endeavors to secure the Pan ama Canal Exposition in the year 1915 "Your friends, neighbors and con stituents adopt this method of ex I pressing to you their appreciation of all your exertions and their acknowl edgment of your conscientious and devoted work. "It is their desire that you naay have, in addition to that sense of sat Ir sfaction which accompanies all duty well and faithfully performed, the a full assurance that, whatever may be a the outcome of this campaign, your friends consider your endeavors to be of the greatest advantage and im portance and they do hereby testify their gratitude and esteem. "From The Citizens of Algiers, February, 1911." In replying to the address of wel come the Mayor said: "This unusual 'rocedure of welcoming a man who g has been defeated has touched me deeply and I deeply appreciate way y down in my heart the many kind anesses tendered me by the people of Algiers in the past, and you may rest Sassured that my heartstrings vibrate ' with untold pleasure in appreciation Sof this splendid reception. I do not Sfeel that any special thanks ae due me for what I have done in Wuash eington, for I feel that I was simply Sdoing my duty to the city, doing a Spublic duty as a public servant. Our Sdefeat was an honorable one, and we Sused every honorable method to win. SThat we had convinced Congress that New Orleans was the 'logical r point' I do not believe there is amy doubt, but we could not overcome the influence of the president and certain members of his cabinet. Had Majority First. "We had a good majority at first, but found that after members visited the White House they changed their minds. It seems manifestly unfair that the president should have en Scouraged us at first, and then so ma terially aided San Francisco, and not only did he do so, but Secretaries Nagle and Knox did considerable work for the California delegation. I would not be fair unless I said that r, every man did his best and especial thanks are due to Chairman Roden berl, who made one of the most 'inspiring speeches on the floor of the House that has ever been de F livered in amy cause, and when he finished not only the galleries, but his colleagues cheered him to the - echo, the applause being so prolong ed that business could not be re sumed for thirty minutes. Nicholas y Longworth is also due especial thanks, for although unfair influence was brolught to bear on him he de - clared that he had given his word Sto )iew Orlesns, and be would stick g to it."

Griffith, the Noted Dante and Shakesperian Student and In terpreter, to Again Lecture in New Orleans-Will Lecture in St. Mary's Hall, Algiers, the 17th of February. It is not often that lovers of poetry and dramatic literature, and especially of the great artists, Dante, Tasse and Shakespeare, have the opportunity of hearing these celebrated authors read and interpreted as delightfully and ar tistically as will be done by Mr. C. E. W. Griffith, the famous Catholic read er and lecturer. Mr. Griffith is one of the noblest and ablest exponents of Catholic faith in the world of literature. His read ings will be from the immortal Dante and Tasse, and from various plays of the great Bard of Avon. Mr. Grimth has Just returned from an extensive tour of the British Isles, where he gave readings before the most distin guished audiences. He is engaged to return there for five months, begin ning May 1. 1911. In New Orleans he is expected to give readings at the Ursuline Convent, St. Simeon's School, the Dominican Convent and Sacred Heart Convent. St. Charles avenue; Holy Angels Academy, New Orleans College of Oratory, Jefferson College, and before the Knights of Columbus. Mr. Griith needs no introduction to New Orleans audiences, as he has vis ited here several times and estab lished a reputation and following that few attain. Wherever he goes he is always a big drawing card, and his readings are rare treats. He has the to erament and emotional power of the actor; he is intensely dramtaic; his characters are finely drawn, and he carries his audience with him so thoroughly into a play by his wonder ful interpretation of the whole that it is Just as though one has seen the play with all the characters presented. The audience is thrilled by the fervor of the reader, and Mr. Grifth never fails to impress his great artistic abil ity while portraying vividly the moral lessons that underlle all his readings. 4 - A Caver the hAt or sad se if thi th lb n metims of the above cuiri appe ualy dark and distiact.
