Academy of Music all of this week,oro
duciug operas of unusual strength, this
afternoon giving "Said Pasha," and in
the evening "Bocoacio. "
Of the work of this company In Bos
ton the Herald of that city says: "The
singers from thus being strangers
fairly sung themselves into the heart
iest good will of their audience, and
their director compelled an equally
quick recognition of his abilities. .The
first night was a triumph, and Hiere
will evidently be many more of the
same tort during the coming weeks. Of
the performances as a whole it may be
said frankly that the company sings
and acts the 'Beggar Student' as well,
aud, iu some ways' better than it was
sung and acted during the memorable
run of this opera at the Bijou theater
some ten years ago.
DEATH OF EDWARD C. IYNDE.
This community received a eerere
shock upon the announcement of the
sudden death of ttlward i;. Liyna. as-
sistant secretary ot tne mcicawanua
Iron and Steel company last Saturday
morning. For several weeks Mr.
Lymle had been suffering from a severe
nttaaic of pleurisy and rheumatism,
(rom which he had apparently suffi
ciently recovered to attend to the per
formance of his office duties, and he
was nt his desk Friday until after 5
o'clock. In the evening he remarked
that he was feeling fairly well and re
tired early. At about 4 o'clock in the
morning his family was alarmed by
another sudden and severe at tick of
the disease which bad reached bie
heart and in a few minutes he passed
peacefully away. Dr. H. V. Logan,
who bad been immediately summoned,
arrived soon afterward, but said noth
ing coiUd have been done to prevent
the fatal termination of this attack.
Mr. Lvnde was born in Wilkes-Barre
July 22, 1831, and was the son of John
W. L-vnde who settled in the Wyom
ing Valley in 1830. The latter was a
descendant of Joseph Lymle who came
rrom England to Boston in 1712. Ed
ward C Lynde reoelved his education
in the Wilkes-Barre Academy which
stood on the public square where now
stands the Luzerne county court bouse.
At the age of ot eixteen he entered the
employment of a wholesale drv goods
bouse in New York; but in 18o2 re
turned to Wilkes-Barre and accepted a
position as accountant in the office of
the Baltimore Coal company.
Ou June 10, 1853. the firm of Scran-
tons & PJatt, of this city, became merged
into the Lackawanna Iron and Coal
Company, and Mr. Lynde, who bad ap
plied a short time previously for a posi
tion in their office, was secure I by S.
T. Scranton, then president of the com
pany, to take the position of book
keeper. He assisted materially in clos
ing up the accounts of the old firm and
in opening the books of the new cor
poration. He was an excellent account
ant, and rose rapidly In the esteem of
tho officers of the company. On the re
tirement of William Henry, Jr., be
became its chief bookkeeper and ac
countant. In December, 1850, be was
elected secretary of the company. A
few years thereafter, it having been de
cided to remove the main office to New
York, involving the nsceialty of having
the secretary at that point, his title
was changed to assistant secretary, al
though bis duties and responsibilities
remained the tame. Thus, for over
forty years he had been in the employ
of the Lackawanna Iron and Steel com
pany and its predecessor, and of him it
may be said, "Well done, good and
faithful servant.
Mr. Lynde was a courteous and gen
al gentleman and of exceedingly fine
artistic taste. It has been frequently
said of biin that a most excellent artist
was spoiled iu developing an excellent
accountant. He was never so bappy
as when entertaining! his friends
either in hie pleasant home on Clay
avenue or in his delightful cottage on
Harvey s lake. He will be greatly
missed and tincerely mourned by
many friends who will bear in grateful
remembrance bis courteous atten
tions. He was a charter mem
ber of Peter Williamson lodge.
