When She Declined to Ite Lender the Rc

flnnquct of flic Chi tpsilon So
, elety Other News Notes.
A few nights ago the members of the
old Cymrodorion Choral society and
Mrs. D. B. Thomas' ludles' choir, met in
St. David's hall for the purpose of or
ganizing a choir of mixed voices to
compete at the Allentown eisteddfod on
Thanksgiving pay. On Wednesday
evening last the choir, now called the
Canibro-American Choral society, met
In Co-operative hall to rehearse the
competitive selection, "We will Never
Bow Down." Mrs. D. B. Thomas, con
ductor of the Ladles choir, was
selected at the first meeting as the
leader of this society.
Mrs. Thomas, however, declined to
act for the reason that she thought It
unbecoming for a lady to lead male
singers, even if In company with ladles.
At this announcement the members, not
seeing their way clear to procure an
other and as efBolent a leader as Mrs.
Thomas, decided to disband.
Mrs. Thomas is a leader of much abll
oty, and her action In this matter Is
causing much comment.
Chi Vpsllons llanquet.
The members of the Chi Upsllon so
cletyl, an organization composed of
young men, met at the home of William
Frink last evening, where a banquet
was served by the Ladles' Aid socl
ity, and her action in this matter Is
thoroughly enjoyed. The proceeds will
go to the Ladles' society for furnishing
the church. George Waters was toast
master of the evening. The programme
of the exercises of the evening Is as fol
lows: Toasts "Woman," Charles Helms;
"Lake Winola," Arthur E. Morse; "The
Chi V. society," Charles Battenburg;
"Peculiar Bumps of the Skull," C, H.
Hall; "Base Ball," Archie Mears; "Our
Last Excursion," George Waters; "Ini
tiatory Ceremonies," Frank Thornton;
"The Press," Robert Monies: "Possibili
ties of the Society," Rev, D. W. Skel
llnger. The musical selections were:
Vocal quartette, C. J. Helms, D. A.
Stone, George and Herbert , Water.!;
guitar duet, Charles Battenburg and C.
H. Hall; violin duet, George and Her
bert Waters; accompanist, Walter
Took Flowers from a Grave.
On Monday last Mrs. Ruane, an aged
lady residing on the South Side, was
Interred In the Hyde Park Catholic
cemetery. The old lady had a large
number of friends who placed choice
flowers upon the. grave.. This action
incurred the enmity of a woman resid
ing In the neighborhood, and the day
following she visited the grave yard
and transferred the floral gifts frbm
Mrs. Ruane's grave to that of one of
her relatives. Mrs. Ruane's friends
heard of tills and secretly resolved to
teach the woman a lesson.
A party of them repaired to the grave
yard and, procuring the flowers, car
ried them home. The same night they
placed them against the door of the
woman who had transferred them.
She was very much terrllied when, on
opening the door the next morning, to
find what she supposed to be evidence
of a ghostly j-islt from Mrs. Ruane
during the night to punish her for
desecrating the grave.
An Evening Entertainment.

He may, however, delude himself thnt

their feelings are not mere phnntoms.
Although It is a praiseworthy Impulse
to help along a fellow member and as

they believe that there Is a greater duty
owing to their party. This is the rea

bereft of votes on which he Is, perhaps,

The announcement of this decision by
the Sons of America of the South Side

An unconfirmed rumor to the effect
that the Delaware and Hudson Canal
company is about to buy up the strip of
land between Brook street and the steel
works depot, bounded by Remintgon
avenue and the main line of railroad,
Is talked of quite freely by the people
of the Twentieth ward. It is said that
when the company becomes the owner
of the land that a new depot will be
built and extra facilities made for
handling freight. Some time ugo an
agent of the railroad had a talk with
the owners of the property In the en
closed strip and the high price asked
by one or two of them broke oft' all
negotiations toward a purchase.
A Tribune reporter had an interview
with the property owners yesterday
afternoon and was led to believe that
the deal will be made before many
days. What appears to be the greatest
setback Is the exorbitant figure of value
set upon the land by the owners. If a
reasonable estimate could be mutually
agreed upon it Is said that the company
would buy up the land without delay.
