The singers occu pied seats in the hall. KEY. UGOKOB E. QDlLP'g SEItUOX. Standing in the hall in a poiition vautage where he could see uud eoen by all present Rev. George 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 the welt, stripping life of all Its eaternalltles, outer equipments, trappings ud perhaps strik ing eccentricities, Uod with infinite vision looks with unerring accuracy upon and into the secret veins nud hidden Ollamber Of the innermost b?ing. His judgment of human actions is seon where the poverty Stricken woman cast her mite, into tho treasury of the temple. He looked beyond the impoverished appearance to the motive and character of the woman, and in the preence of the Pharisees with their phylacteries, the Scrities with their sceptical notions, and the Sumantans with their vaunted tradi tions, said: "Siielml doae more than all others." 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 ! of Pennsylvania. 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. The funeral cortege was larganl was made up of all classes and condi tions. The pall bearers were Dr. P. H Throop, Dr I. F. Everhart. Dr. Henry Roberts, Ambrose Muller,Z H Kuapp, George Griffin, Gaorge Wilder,Cuarles Heuwood. 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 friend. 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 roles. 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.
