Was elected chairman, E D. Fellows

John H. Williams had a child serious
ly ill and could not atteud.
Mr. Worniser was elected temporary
president, aud Mr. Fellows was elected
temporary socretary. The secretary
.ailed the roll and stated that he had
obtained the certificates of eiectiou for
the :::i-inl' u who hud been elected last
Tuesday. The chairman liked
for nominations for chairman. Mr.
Mitchell nominated Mr. Von
Storch and Mr. Coar socondsd the
nomination. Mr. Jennings said: "l'urty
politics sre not supposed to euter into
the deliberations of this body. 1c is
not unusual for the representative of
each political party to make a selection
as to its choioe of men for positions of
honor iiml of trust. Such is the case
In this instance, nud in behalf of the
minority 1 desire to Mate that a more
acceptable selection could not be mad '.
Every action ot his during the years he
has served with ih hm shown a spirit
of fnirniindi dness that is very rare in
partisan politics Mr. Vou Storeh is a
learned gentiomau. aud ho will brine
to the position of chairman maob. dig
The roll was cnllol and all thu mtm
bers vot-)d for Mr. Von Storch,
MR. VON BTOBOB ACOKPT&
Mr. Wormier appointed tit, Mitchell
and Mr. Langstafl a committee to es
cort Mr. Von Storch to the chair. That
gentleman declined their MliltlQO
and said ho desired to make a few r
marks from his old place ou the floor.
Ho said: "Dr. Spencer has said that
Soranton is uomoan city. This is par
ticularly true regarding its school in
terests. Ttie school properly in this
city excels $000,000 In value. The
Ihl'Ii school committee when on n tour
of inspection lust year saw very few
.schools that were superior to the eight
aud twelve room schools that have liter,
rrroted duriug the past few years,
still wo have been erecting buildings
at the rate of two a year and still the
accommodation is not what it onht to
be. We have to rent apartments in
every section of the city, and this jraar
w propose erecting two schools hesidoi
tho high school. This year will be a
very important oue Tne completion
of the high school will make it neces
sary to rearrange the entira system of
dis'ricts, and we uiuit, to act intelli
gently, begin early.
"Coming here aatho servants of those
who sent U3, we represent Republican
and Democratic war is, but it would ha
unwise to BOt as partisans in deliber
ating for the common good. We siiotil 1
drop Jill political an 1 personal consid
erations, If wo attend to the duties
which we have assumed, if wo look
after the maintenance of the schools
aud the welfare of their patrons, we
will have enough to do, without watt
ing time in political controversy."
Concluding, Mr Von Storch said:
' During my term of sorvica I have
endeavored to make no enemies, and 1
think I baVO succeeded fairly well. 1
msko this pledge of conduct for the fu
ture. If I err, I assure yoa before
hand it will in julgtu?nt, not in in
terest," CONGRATULATED BY MR. WORMS KR,
Mr. Vou Storck proceeded to the
president's desk, and M-. Wormser
rose to nisc-t bim. The Eighth ward
gentleman said : ''It affords me much
pleasure to present you with this gave),
tne insignia of your snthority. I be
lieve that you will make an ideal pre
siding ofllccr. Your short term of ser
vicn hns so imprecsed us with your
worth that 1 have no hesitation in pre
dieting that the result of this night's
work will be a glorious one for yon, as
Well ns for tho entire district Accept
my heartiest congratulations."
The now president asked for nomina
tions for serretary. Mr. Wormier
named Mr. Fellows and ths motion
was seconded by Mr. Mitchell, Mr.
Watroni and Mr. Notz. Tho latter
gentleman said: "We have been gral
llied with Mr. Fellows' conduct (luting
the past year. He is the essenco of
courtesy and his ability is unsurpassed,
lie bus shown his fitness aud it pleaa-a
me as a Democrat to be able to say that
he shall be retained.'' The roll was
calied and Mr. Fellows made a neat
speech in accepting the election. He
thanked the members and promised to

did in the past.

E. G. COURSEN'S ENTERPRISE.
Hie Pluck and Fueh an Example of the
Rucceseful Dullness Man.
A good illustration of the pluck and
enterprise ot the Scranton business
men is exemplified in the successful

stock in his Lackawanna avenue atnre
Burned out Sunday afternoon, Tuesday
morning found him ut a new store,
stocked witn a complete aud fresh line
of goods from New York.
Mr. CourBen's old friends are stand
ing by bin aud no doubt he has won
many new onos by bis push and go
aneadiveness. When Mr. OourBau
began negotiations for his present tem
porary quarters he found that a Isase
was held by u third party ; $986 was
paid tho latter for one mouth's posses

hustle invites admiration. A stock rep

THE TIMES' CHARGES UNTRUE.
PoetmattT Vandllnir Undeservedly At tacked
by the Damr.oratio Organ.
The Scranton Timet in its issue of
Monday contained an attack upon Post
master F. M. Vandling, charging him
with keeping Republicans in olllco who
were negligent in the discharge of their
duties, and cited the caae of n letter

of the Central Railroad of New Jersey,
and which the Times claims was ad

When n Tkiiiuni: reporter spoke to

foundation whatever, and substanti
ated bis story by producing letters

Small Saving- That Are Certain to R
turn Large Interest.
There is a widespread idea that books
are costly luxuries, uud that only thos
possessed of abundant lueau can afford
tube the owner of works covering a
very widerangoof topics. Heuce many
men, young us well ss old, who are
desirous of educating themselves, are
prevented from bo doing simply be
cause it is impossible for them to
spare the money tieed-d for obtaining
the necessary books. It is quite true
that the possession of a complete
library Involve! lurgu expenditure,
which is beyond tne reach of persons
of humble means. Rut it is a fact that
tho ability to educate one's self does
not depend upon large expenditure for
hooka. At bast an education is but an
epltomlcition of the knowledge of oth
ers, and does uot involve original re
search except iu a few cas?s. To ob
tain such un ipitomiattion duos uot
necessarily involve a detailed study ot
all the works upon any desired topic,

best scholars, tho rosults of those Is

densations known as encyclopedias.
The encyclopedia is the poor man's
complete libraty. In it is the concen
trated wisdom of the best minds tho
world hns ever seen. It is authoritat
ive and complete,
The amount required in order to ol -
tain possession of that greatest of all
eucyclopodi is, the Britannic i, is so
small that no oue can plead poverty ns
a reason for not purchasing it. Tae iu
Biguifiosnt sum of 10 cjnts a day can
surely be laid away by anyone who is
regularly employed, uo matter how
small his wages, and yet that Is all
that is ueed.'d beyond the first cash
A little self-denial is all that is nec
essary, and it will prove a literal oist

NEW Ki OF WEDDING
Mistake in Lailng a License Brings About
A DOUBLE-JOINTED CEREMONY
Did Clerk Thomas or the Groom Be
come Rattled-Rev. W. H. Pearce
Weds the Lady to a Mythical Hus
band She Became Nervous, but It
All Ended Happily -It's New in
A double-jointed marriage was per
formed Monday afternoon by Rev. W.
H, Pesroo. The clerk of the courts,
tbe contracting parties and the ror
erond gentleman were all mixed up in
it, although investigation shows that
uo hlatne ahould be attached to the
minister or to tile lady.
Iu these inventive times there are
double-jointed peanuts, machinery and
hone structures, duplex wssaing ma
chines nud other things ; but a double
jointed marriage cerumotiy hud hereto
fore been a matter of doubt, so it de
volved upon Scranton, ahead in all
things as usual, to give to the world this
now kind of marriage.
WHO MADE THE MISTAKE
It all happened through a misunder
standing of names between the pros
pective husband and John II. Thomar,
clerk of the court, who issued the li
cense. After the marriage ritnal bad
been gone through with, Dr. Pearce
found he had been addressing his re
marks to a mythical person, the pros
pective wife beciims nervous, a new
license was immediately procured and
finally everythingended happily. This
is how it all happened :
Warner M. Craino and Martha Id
Italdwin, both of Fulton, Osweso
county, N. Y., applied to Mr. Thorn, e
for a marriage license. They secured
the certificate and repaired to tho resi
dence of Rev. W. II. Pearce, of tl.e
Elm Park Methodist church, to to
made one Mr. Pearee'l family gath
ered about, witnessing what they sup
posed to be u marriage, and everything
went swimmingly until the tniulster
extended his hand to Mr. Craine and
said, "Accept my hearty congratula
tions and well-wishes Mr. Miller."
" 'Miller'.'' why. my uaruo isn't 'Mil
ler,' " sid be.
Tae supposed bride wns receiving the
usual "wish you much joy, etc," from
the minister's family.
WEDDED THE WBONQ BUN.
"Verv unfortunate, mv dear madam,"
said Mr, Pearce, "but, nm-er-tbat is,
it seems I have wedded yiu to the
Smelling silts might have been
needed bin for a hasty explanation by
Mr. Pearc?. Someone had mixd
names in nuking out the lie-use certi
ficate, and Mr. Cralne's name uppear'-d
as "Miller." He aaid the ceremony,
while all right lu tho spirit, wus far
from correct in the eyes of the law.
Something niu-it be dono nud at once
to straighten matters.
The conple hastily returned to the
c-nrt house, where tho mistake was
rectified by Mr. Thomas. They then
made a second visit to the parsonage
and were madj one.
The bride is -U years old and was a
widow; tho groom is two years her
junior. He obtained a divorce f r in
nis first wife in January, 189J, and the
wedding iu this statu was necessitated
by its illegality In Now York.
THOMAS OWNS THE CORN.
Since the circumstances of the case
became known Clerk Thomas has been
asked what kind of a marri ige licetis
factory he is running, and other simi
lar questions diflicnlt to answer. Mr.
Thomas owns the corn, eo far as the
truth of the matter is concerned, but
says the mistake was made by Mr
Craine. Anyhow it all ended Well,
mil Scranton leads on comhinatinu
marriages with several back districts
to hear from.
