San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - December 6, 1890, San Antonio, TexasSails saturday december 0, 1800. Sunday . Quite . From Tho Boston Globe the Groat majority of the opponents of sunday entertainments occupy the too common position of special plead ers and As is too com m Only the Case also these special leaders Are ignorant of the question from any Point of View than their own narrow location while they wll Hully close their eyes to anything beyond that limited horizon. What does the average Clergyman with the exception May be of the clergy of the roman Catholic Church know regarding the theatre or its Community of patrons Little or nothing. Froth his earliest lessons he has been taught to avoid them. Now if one who has avoided churches and Church services from his youth in should critic ii he would be you Bivi ered presumptuous and impertinent. The analogy is obvious to an unbiased mind. But in order that special pleading shall not he asserted As the writer s condition in turn let him say imprints that Tor Twenty years he was a sunday school teacher and certainly ought to have some knowledge of both sides of the question. In any Large City Tho majority of its inhabitants Are not a lurch goods. They deserve a head aug. Years of Earnest honest True hearted Endeavor have not succeeded in making this majority a minority. Again the majority o f Church attendants Are also com Jiuu cants. They need Tho incite rent of Church service and Church associations Only to keep them to their duty and in the right path not to direct them to it. Oae Means of ten altered for this purpose and to gain a now audience is the sunday school concert. Well of what does such a concert consist of singing recitation Reading talks prayer. At 6 of age Many a time at a Sabbath school concert the writer Sang in childish treble. I want to be an Angel and such like compositions. Considered As a performance his Young Ellerts May have been Good bad or indifferent considered As a tact it was untrue. No of held of 5 wants to be an Augel. No child of that age if any Oue really does know what an Angelie. Being a boy he ought to have Sung i want to he but that would never do. His poor Little brain used to fashion a woman with Long White Robe and great heavy was his Only idea of an Angel. Btu e putting All this aside what real Dif Ference is there Between a child actor reciting a tender truthful Little Story at a sunday night concert in one place and an another child actor for he is an actor unless he really believes and Means what he sings or recites singing i want to be an Angeliu another place on the whole probably the former would be the source of More Benefit to an audience. Is there any real difference except in topic Between a descriptive lecture on Jerusalem in a the lecturer using maps and paint Ings and utensils of the far away land As a lecture on Paris or London with like proper in a theater or for argument s Sake the on Jerusalem shall be in the theater and Tho one on London shall be in the Church would either be harmful necessary Lily if so which there Are thousands upon thous ands in a City whom no amount o eloquence and no form of entertain ment could influence to Cross the threshold of a Church. And they a often True hearted honest Well mean ing and worthy people. They have an Idle Day sunday. A theater otters a decent wholesome harmless and generally instructive entertainment often it is Given for Sweet Charity s Sake and they will attend that. They Are bound to get some educational Good often to hear a Reading better to their understanding than any ser Mon and surely they Are in a place harmless in itself if the opponents will investigate and find out. Edu cation a Good rest is Good amuse ment decent order is Good and not the great teacher himself rebuke Tome Busy bodies with the remark that it was lawful to do Good on the Sabbath will some Oue object if we on our Side say that what is lawful is and that the master s dictum is Authora Lve the foundation of tie special pleader s argument is that anything in the theater except at least on sunday a Sermon is wrong. In Short that the things theatrical Are fluence association everything. Real knowledge would Knock away that foundation and the writer will not Tor fear of the charge i special pleading that in an equal experience with Church theater not separated by time or dates but concurrent he absolutely Learned More that was harm Fol As a you intr Sabbath school scholar together with a great Deal of Good than he Ever Learned in a theater and he would much dislike to he called Tho following complimentary notice of Trio editor of Tho Light appears la Tho literature and Art column of the Kan Sas City daily times of december 1st.

Thero is a fashion in Flowers As in other things with which Rich people have to do and it is Veu null move capricious than other fashions. As ii Rule. Whatever is most costly is most fashion Able or at Uii rate most sought lifter. A Flower that is difficult to procure from its being not yet in season is sought after for that re Sou and As soon is it becomes plentiful it is no longer1 prize a above its Fel lows. Another forced lower takes its place and so the fashion changes from one premature growth to another. An exception to this Rule is the Orchid which is always in Vogue because it is Al ways expensive. On the other hand Many persons especially women have their favorite Flowers which they order in season As Well As out of season idiot despising them when they become comparatively cheap. A person whose favorite is the Orchid never has of course this reason for thinking less of it you could put Worth orchids in your a Florist said and would buy Only a Small Centrepiece for n dinner a Choice in Onylia costs 75 cents. It is perhaps on account of us Cost that the or chid is Trio Holiday i our. At cams tons tide people arc More Likely than it other times to buy the most expensive things they can get. The Jacquemino or in its English form the Jimick roses Are also Holiday Flowers. They first Bloom about then and sell readily at from a to a dozen. The american Beauty finds favor All the year round even when it is comparatively cheap but it becomes in Espe Cial favourites soon after Christmas for. Be coming rare it Sells for from to a dozen.

After his wife. It for from to each. A Florist said people think the sum Mer is the time for Flowers. They Are very much mistaken. The summer in this Cli mate is too hot and us we eau not regulate Tho heat As we can the cold we Are it the mercy of the elements. The Winter is the time for Flowers especially roses. Then Only the Fine varieties which people Are grown. Tho colder Tho weather the belter for cold Days Are More Likely u lie to be sure there is in interval in midwinter when some of Tho choicest american Beauty for in cultivated with difficulty but n revival begins in the Hothouse just before easter the season which typifies the re Vival of life out of persons who believe that nature raises finer roses than a Hothouse Horticulturist probably flunk that owners of greenhouses Are Independent of florists. Quito the contrary Sny the latter. In the first place they cannot As a Rule raise such Fine flow ers us professional growers and it costs them More to raise a Rich Rose than to buy it. When a Man finds that his Floral Home Industry in addition to being unreliable and Uncertain is More expensive than importations from the greenhouses of florists to goes elsewhere for his Flowers. I be got tired apiece for my own roses. Good and bad and prefer to pay a Florist to raise them for a Green House owner is quoted As saying. Among Tom Flowers that Are expensive and correspondingly valued on that account Are. Chrysanthemums. Choice Japan Ese varieties sell at from -5 to s10 a dozen.

As Cost and not cheapness is an incentive to pure Hsc it is easy to believe that Tho amount of Money spent in a year by new yorkers in Flowers and plants would keep poor families in Comfort for the same length of time. What tins amount is it is difficult even to guess at. Each Florist is Likely to estimate it differently. One is inclined to think that 000 a year is seut in Cut Flowers and As much More in plants. This estimate is based on the assertion that one wholesale chief to be a Busi Ness one year of Stock that Cost wholesale May retail for and is certainly Little enough to allow for the Sale at retail of the Stock of the other wholesale dealers. The Cost of private greenhouses must be considered besides. Florists sometimes paid a year to take charge of houses. The Flower Bill of the comparatively poor who do not buy plants is a Large one. More Money in proportion to the slender incomes of the buyers is spent for Flowers at funerals and weddings and in the sick room in tenements than by Well to do peo ple who the florists say spend More in proportion than the very Rich. The num Ber of florists shops in densely populated sections indicates that Many Flowers Are bought by slender purses. Flowers too Aro sometimes considered almost a necessity in Tho sick room they often do More to cheer the sick than Al most anything else. That is Why the Flower Mission which seeks to Supply Flowers to the very who cannot pay for them is one of tie most practical of charities. Flowers at festivities and funerals Are now sent by Many persons to the patients their five oreo institutions. Very often a Church is stripped of its Floral decoration immediately after n wedding and funeral Flowers Are not allowed time to novt York Sun. C a lbs of the Union and Knickerbocker clubs Ore unique. In i hem the association of gentlemen idea carried out to the fullest. Neither has a charter and any Mem Berot either club can be held responsible for the entire debts of his club. By de Clining to Avail themselves the Protection which tic Law gives to a chartered corporation the members assume the risk of unlimited liability associations but they hold that which their free Dom from Legal trammels surrounds their institution is full compensation. Neither club Ever takes any Steps to enforce pay ment of members indebtedness. A Mem Ber can run up a Bill of a couple of thou Sand dollars or More on a big dinner for Iii Tiik of and should he fail to meet his debt of Honor when the Bill is presented Noah met ism Adrito Foric a settlement. Should such n arise he would simply be expelled and thereby be forever ostracized in club Dom. Cases of the kind Are however no rave As to be practically York press. Killing Tho West in Lorn.
