last Thursday night. A sprinkling
of ladies was numbered among the
St. Johns boosters, and like the
male element, were all suitably la
beled. It was expected that spe
cial cars would be furnished, but it
seems that negotiations were entered
into too late to accomplish this.
However, the next best thing was
extra cars, which were provided,
but it was necessary to changecars on
Washington street in order to reach
tile auditorium. Good speed was
attained in making the trip to th
A reception committee, compose!
of Councilman Joy and Messrs
Mills and Trcmp, the former ap
pointed by Mayor Rushlight
teprescnt himself, .since he w.is un
able to be present, met the delcga
tiou and received the St. Johusitcs
in a most cordial mid welcome man
tier. I W. Jobelinan assisted
the reception ami made himself
very useful and obliging in looking
after the details nnd making the
guests feel at home. Councilman
Muck also was an active force
getting the delegates together au
arranging for the trip. Messrs
Joy, Trcmp and Mills, rcsectivcly
made neat little addresses ol wel
come, which were replied to by A.
M. Essou in his usual good am
ready style. After these little
courtesies had been disposed of ant
the glad hand extended to nil, 1
tour 01 the spacious building was
uudcrtuken. The extx)sitlon was
found to be arranged upon a more
magnificent scale than was generally
expected. Vaudeville, music and
exhibits of all kinds of food stuffs
furnished entertainment for all.
Every available space in the large
auditorium was taken up, nnd it
wus a most interesting sight to wit
uess the animated demonstrators
attempt to get the people interested
in their various wares. Free sam
ples were given at nearly all the
booths, and the way some of the
St. Johns boosters went -ufter the
same was not at all slow, Had
the samples not been couiosed of
of pure food, the heterogeneous mess
that some handed down to the in
ner man would have required the
services of a dozen physicians to
dissipate the dark brown taste in
the mouths of the sufferers in
the morning, to say nothing of the
colic, cramps and other internal dis
turbances tliut a chaotic array of
inferior foodstuffs generally arouse
The St. Johns delegation was
treated most courteously by the
management ami demonstrators as
well. The smile of welcome wus
extended on every hand and al
made to feel perfectly at home.
The reception committee acquitted
itself well, and made things as
pleasant as possible for the guests.
Every member of the St. Johns
delegation was apparently delighted
with the trip and treatment accord
ed, and other visitors at the exposi
tiou were made fully aware at all
times that St. Johns "was in town."
Where to Go
Sunday is the time of Holy Com

cal church. Dr. C. C. Poling will
preach at 11 a. 111. and the evening
service will be of old songs and
music, short talk by pastor, starts

The Christmas program will be
given Monday evening at 7:30
o'clock. This will contain the canta

Most persons labor to give a good
appearance to the house and
grounds of their residence whether
they own it or not. A larire nart of
mis labor is txirmnucnt value to the
owner and is in effect u gift made

fact alone often prevents the renter
from making improvements he oth-
