AS TO SABBATH OESECRATION.
Rav. Mr. Hogan Preaches a Vary Prac
tical and Forolb'.e Sermon.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Forest City, Jau. 15 Last Sunday
renins R"V. J. C, Hogan chose for his
text '"They watched Him whether H
would heal on the Sabbath day, that
they might accuse Him," Mark lii. 1.
"The Lord's enemies, " Mr. Hogan said,
''drove Him from Jerusalem and He
made Capernaum His place of abode.
His enemies followed Him The Lord
was preaching and they watched Him
to see if He would heal the man with
a withered hand. Nothing was
said, but JfSOj knew what was in their
mistaken and malicious heart, and He
put this question to them: 'Is it law
ful to do good on the Sabbath day as to
do evil? To save life as to kill?' Like
cowards thev were silent.
Christ then illustrated the spirit of
the Sabbath law. Christ is our ox
ample in Sabbath observance as in all
things. Hi will furnish us a safe rule,
How did lie keep theSibbath? It is
safe to say no money could induce Him
to open his shop ou that day. We can
not think of H'.m keeping open store
to sell milk or meat. He attended
church, lie went about doing good.
We ought to givi God one-seventh of
our time. Our nature demands it
Uut today 8,148,000 people in this
country are at work. S mis of it may
be necessary work, but a vast amount
Of it Is unnecessary. The United States
government is greatly at fault on this
question in regard to the mail service.
Stveral years ugo petitions from
twenty-one states were sent to the
postmaster general requesting the dis
continuance of Sunday postal service.
The postmaster general replied: "So
long us the silver river fbws and the
green grass grows and the ocoan tides
rrne and fall on the first day of the
week, so long shall the mails of this
republic circulate on that day."
London with its five million of peo
ple ullows no mail to be collected or
distributed. The preacher then char
acterized the Sunday newspaper as the
fountain of Sabbath desecration and
the sewer of all news trash of the day.
It is tho dirtiest sheet printed. It is
training an army of boys to be Sab
bath violators. The man who adver
tises in a Sunday paper may bo a dea
con, but be desecrates the Sabbath just
as much as if he kept open store. The
speaker then said the congressman
from our neighboring district is th
biggest criminal in the crowd in this
respect. He publishes a Sunday paper
in violation of the laws of God and
man. How can we expect the rabble
to respect our laws when tho law-mak
era themselves are not respeotable?
The workiugman is much slandered
on this subject. According to the pol
itician and the money gobblar, the
workingman wants everything that is
devilish; but the fact is the politician
and the soulless corporation want
seven days' work for six days' pay.
But the workingmau is no fool. Con
tinuing, the speaker said that in 1883.
when they desired to open the mme
urns and theaters in England, a canvass
was made and it was found that sixty
two labor organiz itions, with a mem
bership of 48.482, were found in favor
of open museums and theaters, and
against such desecrations. 2,412 labor
organizations, with a membership of
501,705, went on record.
After the sermon, Mr. Hogan read
the following resolution to be pre
sented to the Forest City borough
council tonight, which was adopted by
a large number of those present:
Whereas. Wo understand that aa elec
tric railway company desire the right of
way through the main streets of our bor
ough. . , ,,
Ruanlvad. Thatwa hereby respectfully
renuest our counrilmeu, if they should

Brief
Changes in Old One Frac.ically Give It a
New Chiractnr.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Montrose, Pa., Jan. 15. Company
G, thanks to the energy of their cap
tain, have now a well arranged and
comfortable armory. Captain Ainey
took yonr reporter through the refitted
armory and he was surprised aud grati
tied to see what a change had taken
placi. For years it has been little less
than an excuse for a place of entertain
ments. The room was large aud lieat-
d near the entrance by a stove on
either side, but the people who were
brave enougn would go and sit through
an entertainment and suffer from the
cold and thou sulfur from a cold sev
eral dnvs afterward.
All this is now changed. In place
uf stow.', a iarge furnace makes steam
that is sent around the room, and sev
eral radiators will keep the room warm.
The gallery that extended across the
bnilding has been taken out aud in its
place there is a large meeting room for
the company, and the captain's private
room, which is large and beautifully
arranged. Down stairs under the com
pany s rooui, the quartermaster and
first sergeant have wall appointed
rooms, besides a room for the janitor.
1 ho stage has nlso had some improve
ments, so that Montrose can uow boast
of a fine armory, and a much better
place for entertainments than it has
ever before hail. Company G doserves
to be congratulated on their good for
line in having for a lealer and com
mander not only a brave; and true of
ficer, but a man who is able to plan
and execute such improvements as has
been mads in this armory under his
direction,

TABLES
These are Center Tables.
Last week we interested the men
with Office Chairs, which they ap
preciated, as we judge by their pur
chases. This week we will try and
interest the Ladies with Center
Tables at One-third less than former
prices. They will be displayed in
our large show window with prices
on each. A Table of this descrip
tion can be used in numbers, as
every room in the house should
possess one. They are as handy as
a shelf or mantel, and decidedly
more ornamental. Look up your
spaces and . come THIS WEEK
and select a Table.
