BLACK FEVER S PROVIDENCE.
Several Persons Said to Be Suffering
from It One Sufferer Has Suc
cumbed to Its Effects.
Several persons In Providence are
suffering from what is said to be very
marked cases of cerebro spinal mening
itis, otherwise black fever. Patrick
K trick and mother.of Sweeney street,
m the Third ward, have succumbed to
the dreaded disease.
In 187'.' this city was visited by an
epedemic of black fever that sent hun
dreds of persons to their graves. It is
unusually fatal and those who survive
always lose some of their faculties.
Heulth Officer Allen was seen by a
TnibX'NE reporter last evening and said
there was no occasion of alarm or fear
of an epidemic of black fevr. It is
uot a contagious diseaso, but as a pie
caution he directed that the patients
be isolated and the funerals of any that
might die conducted privately.
The doctor said that cases of spinal
meningitis are by no means rare. Ev
ery now and then the physicians of the
city meet with a case.

The Minooka Street railway exten
sion was opened yesterday snd every
thing seems to indicate that it will be i
oni of the most successful roads, in a
financial way, that has yet bseu opened
in this city.
The first car over the new line left j
Scranton at 8.15 p. m. yesterday in
oharge of Conductor P. J. Kelly, with
T. J. Gallagher as motormau. Among
the through passengers was Rev. Johu i
Louirhran, pastor of St. Joseph's Cath- j
olic church, Minooka. On the return j
trip Rev. Daniel Greene, Father John's j
assistant, was a passenger, and the I
round trip cciupied one hour and fif- i
Tne cars were hailed with evident
deliirht by the inhabitants. Windows,
doorways and Iplazzas were thronged,
and as each car passed it was greeted
with smiles an 1 merry acclaim by all.
Groups of children, deeked iu holiday
attire, their rosy faces beaming with
the delight of innocent childhood,
boarded the tars aud traversed the line
to call on relatives. To the youngsters
it was a rsd letter day.
Th service is perfect. Superintend
ent Gromley was on the seeond car
that went through, accompanied by a
TRIBUNE reporter. The new road can
not be improved. There are no dan
gerous curves and the grades can be
climbed with ease. The construction
proves that it was in charge of a cap
able .builder. The power too is all that
could be desired, aud even at the ter
minus a velocity cun be maintained, if
need be.equal to that on any other line
in tbe city.

The tenth anniversary of the Scran

the club the attendance was limited to
members, their wives and sisters and

swered that he did not look around,
and that he heard several taps of the
bell. He is to call at the office again
today, but the chances are against him

After Swearing- Off
How many have taken vows of absti
nence with the birth of the new year U
perhaps hard to estimate, but we now
know that such efforts are futile nglust
inveterate hahu, a habit which has become
a disease. There was a time when it
wruld have been easy to quit, but having
neglected to do so the hnbit continued un
til by the constant or fnqueut use of tbe
poison there was forced a change in the
nervous system which made it not nly
possible to drink, but necessary. Then
you could drink a good deal and hot seem
to get drunk, but you also found it neces
sary, to keep you feeiing good aud you
"oraved liiiuor" because you had becomo
diseased. Now that swearing off does no
gooil and the pledge can't be kept, go and
make your resolution good for all tune by
taking treatment at the Keeley Institute,
T'.'U Madison avenue, Srauton, Pa.
Keep the dimes for tho three unique
pictures, "Toleohono Oirl," "Oood Moru
