.Miss Lizzie Jenkins Wedded to John J.
Broun in June Last-New Officers of
the C. M. II. A. .Men Arrested
for Truin Jumping.
An Interesting marriage -which has
Just come to light Is that of Miss Lizzie
Jenkins, the attractive daughter of
Mrs. Hannah Jenkins, of North Flliranre
avenue, to John J. Brown, of the South
Side, late of Lorenss & Koempel's drug
store. The young couple left the city
on June 20 for Blnghamton, where they
were secretly married. Mr. and Mrs.
Brown returned home, the young lady
going to her mother's home and Brown
to his South Side abode. A few days
ago Miss Jenkins acquainted her mother
with what had occurred. It is thought
that Mrs. ejnkins opposition to the
match was the object of its secrecy.
A Tribune reporter called at the Jen
kins residence yesterday, but the family
refused to- discuss the marriage. On
Tuesday afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Brown
left the city for Taylor, where they will
reside in the future. Both of the young
people are well known and their mar
riage has caused no little comment. Mr.
Brown is now employed In a Taylor

The Market of the First Presbyterian
dliurch, which has been held In the
Thirteenth Regiment armory, on
Adams avenue, since Wednesday after

for giving such a well controlled and

DIAMONDS OF THOUGHT.
Our sympathy Is cold to the relation of
distant misery. Gibbon.
Next to love, sympathy is the dlvlnest
passion of the human heart. Burke.
The generous heart should scorn a pleas
ure which glveB others puln. Thomsom.
With the soul that ever felt the sting of
sorrow, sorrow Is a sacred thing. Cow
per. Shame on those hearts of stone that can
not melt in soft adoption of another's sor
row !-A. Hill.
More hopeful than all wisdom or counsel
is one draught of simple Iniman pity that
will not forsake us. George Eliot.
One of the greatest of all mental pleas
ures Is to have our thoughts often divined,
even entered into with sympathy. L.
Open your hearts to sympathy, but close
them to despondency. The flower which
opens to receive the light of day shuts
against rain. Beattie.
To rejoice in another's prosperity, is to
give content to your own lot; to mltignte
another's grief Is to alleviate or dispel
your own. Lyron Edwards.
Our sympathy Is never very deep unless
founded on our own feelings. We pity,
but we do not enter Into the grief which we
have never felt. L. E. l.andon.
To commiserate Is sometimes more thnn
to give, for money Is external to a man's
self, but he who bestows compassion com
municates his own soul. Mountford.
Sympathy wanting, all Is wanting. Per
sonal magnetism Is the conductor of the
sacred spark that puts us In human com

NEWS OF THE SOUTH SIDE
South Side Board of Trade Could Not
' Muster a Quorum.
DEATH OP JOSEPH Kl'DEWICK
One of tho Best Known polish Residents
of the City Passes Away Max Phillips
Runs Down a School Boy, Pain
fully Injuring Him.
Since P. W. Gallagher resigned from
the secretaryship, and membership
also, of the South Side board of trade,
that organization has subsided Into
a shadow of Its past self, and a very
pertinent Inquiry now seems to be,
What excuse has the South Side board
for living? Any meeting, for the past
six or eight months, did not have more
members present than Just enough to
constitute a bare quorum, and on sev
eral occasions no meeitngs were held,
as was the case lart night, because
there was not a quorum present.
M. J. O'Toole Is the present secretary,
and for efficiency and progresslveness
In attention to duty Mr. Gallagher did
not surpass him, but It has been re
marked by many of the members of the
board that coincident with the retlral
of Mr. Gallagher the decline began and
has been kept up unremittingly since.
Business of Importance to the entire
South Side was on for last night, but
there was no meeting. That a board
of trade In any community is hugely
beneficial cannot be denied, but a board
that is apathetic and slipshod Is worse
than no board nt all. It is time for the
absentee members to make up their
minds whether the board shall continue
to do business or take In Its sign and
close up shop.
Small Boy Run Over.
WIiHe the children attending No. 3
school were playing yesterday morning
at recess, pome of the smaller ones got
down on Cedar avenue and were
romping around on the street. Max
Phillips, the contractor, drove along
quite rapidly with a horse and two
wheeled gig and near Powers' drug
store the horse struck the young son of
Rev. J. C. Schmltt, of the Hickory
Street Baptist church and knocked the
youngster down, severely Injuring him.
The little fellow was unable to arise
and had to be assisted to his feet. Even
then he was unable to walk, and had
to be carried Into Dr. J. B. Aman's
office, across the street, where his case
was attended to.
It did not develop that any of the
child's bones had been broken, but he
sustained very hurtful flesh wounds
from the trampling of the animal's
hoofs. Those who saw the accident are
divided as to whether Phillips was to
blame or not.
Dcnth of Joseph Kudcwick.
Death has ended the useful career of
Joseph Rudcwlck, the South Washing
ton avenue Polish merchant, who was
well known' throughout' the city as a
mast successful business man and one
of the leading Polish citizens of the
county. Mr. Rudcwlck was the first one
of his nationality to engage ln the gro
cery business In this city and by energy
and enterprise he built up a trade which
branched out considerably and yielded
him an Income that succeeded In build
ing up a good sized fortune.
About a year ago his health began to
fall and declined until a short time
ago, when he was forced to confine him
self to his bed and have dally medical
attention. A wife and two sons survive
him. His funeral will take place this
morning nt 9 o'clock, with a high mass
of requiem which will be celebrated at
St.- Mary's Polish Catholic chuivh on
Prospect avenue. Interment will be
made in the now Polish cemetery In
Minooka. A number of societies of
which he was a member will attend the
funeral in procession.

Just to be good
This Is enough enough!
Oh, we who find sin's billows wild and
Do we not feel how more thnn any gold
Would be the blameless life we led of old
While yet our lips knew but a mother's
Ah, though we miss
All else but this,
To be good Is enough.
It Is enough
Enough Just to be good!
To lift our hearts whero they are under
stood; To let tho thirst for worldly power and
Go unappeased; to smile back In God's face
With tho glad lips our mother used to kiss.
Ah! though we miss
All elHO but this
To be good Is enough,
