Standing in the hall in a poiition

Guild preached a beautiful and
pr-ssive sermon. II- said i
I'pon all ocensiona like this, standing as
we ol't times do, at the end of earthly
Careers, when we are taunted, almost nu
tonacloutly to ourselves, to pass judgment
nu human life, like to refresh inv mind
with tho great thought of the Word, that
Bod isa diseernui-of thought and intents
of the hearts of tke children of men.
We judge human life from appearances,
Ood judges correctly and by the heart.
Our judgments of life may be as fur astray
from Uou'.s judgmetit as the east is from
stripping life of all Its eaternalltles, outer
equipments, trappings ud perhaps strik
ing eccentricities, Uod with infinite vision
looks with unerring accuracy upon and

Stricken woman cast her mite, into tho

beyond the impoverished appearance
to the motive and character of

Scrities with their sceptical notions, and
the Sumantans with their vaunted tradi

CHARACTER IS THE MAN.
Character is what a man really, actually
and truthfully is. Its that Invisible and
yet visible something which is bmind all a
man's actions, behind his opinions, nnd bis
reputation among men. it's that some
thing at the depth of his being in the sight
of Hod. to Whom oar hearts are opened,
all de-ires are known, and from whom uo
secrets are hidden. Hence we can always
with assurance sav, at the end of our
oarthly career, dust to dust, ashes to ashes
and earth to earth. The spirit returns to
the Hod who gayj it, for Hot is unerring
in His judgement of character and His
judgment is tempered with mercy.
And yet it is in tun power of man to
lodge somewhat, earthly life. We stand
today at the end of a conspicuous aud
notable career, in tbe life of Dr. tlollister.
Of his generation he was probably tho bet
known man between t.'arbondale and
Wilkes-Barre. His name is a household
word. As an antiquarian and by the fruits
of industrious antiquarian research he has
already embalmed himself in the history
of this valley. As a historian his works
for Generations will be found in tho homes
and libraries ot families in all this section !
As a physician there is mourning today
In city and couutry. I a t he horn of the
rich nud in tbe homes of the poor, all
knew him to be humanity's friend.
Many a poor Inborer fighting to keep the
woir from his door-sill, knowing not
where tomorrow's broad would come from,
have fouud him to be n ministering angel.
All with whom he came in contact found
hi mind filled with soothing thoughts as
his spirit was nf healiu:: smypathy. Into
the hands of Hod we commit his spirit.
In view of life and of death do wo boar
the call Are wo obedient to the command
to lay up Incorruptible treasures? I ask in
th presence of death if anything can
lake precedence? According to the Word
of tbe Gospel, His word for it, the Boul
that sinneth and dies, dieth for ever.
WORDS OF CON'-OLATION.
One word to the family, frlendf, and
neighbors of our d ar departed friend.
Tbe word of Hod is not wanting for words
of comfort and cheer in this sad hour.
May His consolation;to this stricken house
bold be greater than thair anguiBh. May
thh darkness bring to them m ire elosoly
His bosom. May they there Bud shelter in
thfle years to come, until one by ono they
shall be called to a higher life, to a broad-r
and clearer light, to sweeter peace.to tbe
fellowship that is inexpressibly preci ins.
the fellowship of God the Father, Christ
Jesu the Son. and the Holy Spirit, the
world's comforter aud consolation in sor
row. At the conclusion of Rev. George E
Guild's address, R-v. Rogers Israel re
cited the prayers for the dead, and pro
nounced the benediction. The quin
tette sung "Nearer My God to Thee, "
friends took their lint look nt the re
mains, the handsoms casket was closed
nnd the body of the man whose histor
ical works will bd the reference for all
time, was lifted tenderly by loving
hands, and removed to Forest Hill
cemetery wher interment was mile.

BAKER COMPANY AT THE ACADEMY.
Th Favorit Operatic Organ, nation
Fleas Two Large Audience).
The Baker Opera company yesUrduy
afternoon began a week's engagement
at the Academy of Music under aus
pices that were most favorable. The
house wa crowded, aud as the well
known memhtrs of the company made
their appenranc upon tlie stage they
were given a hearty welcome.
The B iker coiujpany this year Is ,'n
some respects stronger than ever be
fore. The work of tho principals was
never so good and the chorus has
greatl) improved under the direction
of Stage Manager Jaxon and Musical
Director Robinson. There are two
new members with the organiza
tion this year. Mr. Baker has
never had a tenor whose voice
was ns good as is Martin Paclie's. He
was formerly a member of the Emma
Juch Opera company. His voice is of
great flexibility and calibre, and is ad
mirably cultivated, Better than all,
Mr. Paehe can act, and act right well,
too something, by the way, that very
few singers can do. Francis Gaillard,
the new bsritone, is a valuable addi
tion to the Baker forces, and his work
yesterday was well received.
Miss Irene Murphy as Sarena in
"Said Pusha" at th matinee and'in the
title role of "Boccacio" in the evening
was given a warm welcome. Time has
dealt lightly with Miss Murphy and
she is more charming, attractive and
piquant than ever, and bar work shows
a considerable improvement. At last
evening's performance Miss Murphy
was presented with a basket of Clark's
choicest roses by an old Scranton
Miss Maude Dickeson's remarkably
pure soprano was heard to great ad
vantage at both performances. Since
her appearance here last season Miss
Dickesou has studied assiduously us is
shown by the bettermont of both her
singing nnd dramatic work. Miss
Josie Intropld) uud Miss Maude Darcy
were first class m their rsspective
The popular William Wolfe and
Arthur Wauley convulsed th audi
ences by their clever comedy work.
They have lost none of their abilities
as fun makers aud their efforts were re
warded by enthusiastic applause.
A feature of both performances was
tho dancing of Miss Mae Rose Baker,
who executed quite a number of diffi
cult uteps in an artistic manner.
Tho Baker company will sing the
"Beggar Student" this evening, and
tomorrow at the matinee "Fatiuitza"
will be given. "The Black Hnssar"
will be the attrnction tomorrow uight.
