An Illilght Into the Mysteries of Ice
Cremn Kitting nnd Why It
Is Done
The congregation or St. Mark's cathedral
havo long thought that tho Doau should
hnvo a residence provided ror him and re-
cently active steps havo boon taken to accom-
plish this purpose. A convenient lot ndjolnlng
tho church was purchased nnd n very hnndsouio
resilience Is now being erected thereon. Soino
portion of tho noccssnry fund has nlrcndy been
raised und tho ladles connected with tho
council auk now houcitimi
public subscription to muko up tho balance of
tho expenso thus Incurred.
To nld this good work tho Indies of tho Altar
society attached to tho church decided upon
giving n luncheon und Ico cream festival.
They secured for this purpose tho Icocroam
saloon nnd gardens of Messrs. Harnlsch & llacr
on Commcrco streot und yestorduy at noon
thoy commenced serving n good luncheon
consisting of turkuy chicken shrimp nnd
potuto alail lettuce pickles Saratoga pota-
toes lemon and vanilla Ico cream cuke eolfee
etc. etc. which was ini-ly well patronized.
lu tho ovcnlng they held an Ico cream fes-
tival. McAllister's band performed musical
"elections nnd the wholo passed otr very suc-
cessfully. Tho only drawback at times wus
the want of more room and light. Tho tablos

1. Miss Eva Howard and Miss Katlo Elliott.
2. Miss Aunlo lleos nnd Miss May Williams.
3. Miss Cora Ogden Miss Woodhull and Mrs.

wns indeed romnrknble uud ovidoucod n gront
amount or Boir-abnegatlon. In tho oarly part
or tho evening ono of tho young ladles declined
to havo luuolioou on the ground thatsho had 15
or 20 Ico creams to devour during the evening
to ploaeo tho liberal patrons of tho
festival. Her case was by no means singular
and It may be romnrkod that tho Indies did tnko
H liberal iiuantlty of Ico cream to servo their
cause doing It with good graco and resigna-
tion. Tho ice cream as supplied by Messrs.
Harnlsch & Ilaer wns certainly delicious butir
any or tho male mombtrs or tho church had
taken half tho quantity they would havo ro-
HUlrod savoral "whisky straights" to ward otf
tho ovll effects of It. Tho ladles woro right. If
Siiurgoon as he declared cun "smoke to the
Klory or God nnd for tho good of the church"
Episcopalian ladles may assuredly take unlim-
ited quantities of Ico croam for tho same good
caueo.
