DEBATED BY ABINGTON INSTITUTE
Various Discussions to Advance the
Usefulness of tho Sunday School.
Some Flaws Discovered but Ideas
Are Presented for Its Betterment.
The Institution Is Especially De
signed for Winning Souls. Other
West Side News.
The Wost Side oiTtco of the Nrii,Troi
IniliUNK is located at 1040 Jackson street,
where subscriptions, advertisements aud
communications will receivo prompt at
tention. The Sunday school institute of the
Abington Biptist association hold yes
terday afternoon and evoning in tho
Scran ton Street B iptist church, though
not well utteudeii, was productive of
considerable discussion and proved a
valuable enlightentneut to those who
purtioipated.
A period of devotional exercises lei
by W. B. Owen, of the Jackson Street
Baptiet church, liesruu at 2 o'clock,
preceding the regular Institute and
session of discussions. The hymns,
"Tills Is My Story" and "Nearer
Blessed Lord," were followed by a
reading irom the Scripture by H v
Charles Embroy, of Fleotville. A
prayer was offered by Rev. W. J.
Ford, of Green Ridge,
A brief address of welcome was
made by Dr. 13 i Beddo?, superin
tendent of the Scrantotl Street B.ntist
church Sunday school. Dr. Beddoe's
uddr. ss included nn extension of invi
tation to I lio homos of the congrega
tion as well 01 to tho institute.
A motion by Rev, Mr. Collins that
ReV, H. II. Harris act .is chairman of
the sessions was carried.
Owing to tho absence of Rev. Mr.
Ellis, of Blukely, the regular secre
tary, Bev. Mr. Einbrey was elected o
servo temporarily in that position.
MR. eubbby's pafeb
A paper devoted to the need of better
service on the part of teachers in the
Sunday school was read by ll-v. Mr.
Embrey. He laid considerable stress
upon the harmful results of teachers
being improperly informed as far
ss the Scripture is concerned. Oc
cusional absence, even, on the part of
instructor sets a bad example to the
pupils and encourages tbem in laxity.
"A sure indication of the need of
better service," said Rev. Mr. Collins
in the discussion which followed, ''is
the non-attondanco of teachers at
Bible class. A good man or woman
does not necessarily imply a good
teacher, That teacher who la interested
in his class and gives good service is be
who makes a s'.udy of tho lesson bis
fortification.
Rev. Warren G. Partridge said there
was a growing demand for a more gen
eral knowledge of fundamental Bible
principles.
' Incident I were mentioned by Riv.
M. J, Wutkius, of Factoryville, of
where be had temporarily instructed
classes nnd found a deplorable ignor
ance on the part of older scholars.f roui
which can only be found the fact that
teachers themselves are wojf ully negli
gent in preparation for their duties.
Bev. Mr. Ford was of the opinion
that more dir ctuess on the teacher's
part is one of the greatest of needs.
The carelessness or laxity on the
part of parents was commented upon
by Rev. D. C. Hughes, of tho Jackson
Street Baptist church. Not until tho
training logins at home, before the
child is G years old, can we expect
proper future service.
REWARD OF THE FAITHFUL TEACHER.
B--V. D. C. Thomas, of the Taylor
Bapiist church, road a piper oa the
reward of the faithful teacher. The
Sunday school toucher by hi3 devoted
ness to his purpose will be rewarded
according to numerous promise! in the
Bible. It is a divinely instituted work
paid first by satisfaction, which in this
case is better than dollars and cents.
The effects of good work, if not seen
hero, will be nnpnrent in Heaven.
The discussion following and in ref
erence to Mr. Thomua' remarks drifted
to a consideration of how to maunge
classes of unruly boys and girls. It
was brought out that tho quality of
pationce with firmness would in most
cases briugrofructory pnpils to a manly
display of qualities and proper con
duct. Sunday school work as an ag.-ncy
for winning souls" was the subject
treated by Rjv. Warren G. Partridge,
of the Peun avenue B iptist church. He
said that while the treatment of the
Sunday school question brought out
many fl iws, still it is one of the most
wonderful agencies for winning souls.
The home is tirst and then the pulpit,
but next there is no greater agency
than the Sunday school.
OOMPBTBBT TBACHBBS needed.
Rev. D. C. Hughes said he wai ten
able to bo present in the evenio-j io ad
dress the institute on Sunday ' ccaool
work in general. However, ho wanted
to take advantage of the present oppor
tunity iu substantiating the soul-winning
sentimente expressed by Rev. Mr.
Partridge. To make the Sunday schools
more useful in its purpose, th ) deplora
ble lack cf Biblical knowledge ou the
part of teachers must be overcome.
The brains of printed matter iu the
form of leaflots, etc., are too generally
nsed. Souls o.inuot be Won by persons
incompetent to do the winning.
The eveniug session was opined at 7
o'clock with asonx survice, led by tho
Scranton street choir. Pap rs were
reatl and discussed as follirs: "The
S'cretary; Hib the Position anv
Value?' Bev A E Doughs; "The Su
perintendent in aud Out of School," E.

MONG
the New Books.
Qaeer dnvs have coino upon us. It no
longer suffices for those who would be
poetical to be approximately sane, rational
and intoillgible. Those "that are, our
critic." will have naught to do with. You
remember Poef No one, to my recoliec
tiou, has ever succeeded iu precipitating a
meaning from tho fantastic solution of his
disordered imaginings. Yet Poe bns been
accepted nnd tluly tlt-ilied by two genera
tions of transatlantic "authorities" as tho
one great and eternal poet of America, nt a
time, too, when Longfellow, Whittier and
Bryant, heaven loiefend them, wore
dot nied to curt dismissal with tho beggar
ly boon of a smile. This, to bo sure, is an
ancient story. It occurs to mind only in
Hitting Consequence of the perusal of a
new Volume, whereby one Francis Thomp
son biaves the ignominy'attachiug in these
Commonplace tunes to artificers of verse.
I am not going to honor Mr. Thompson
With an extended seiies of quotations.
'Twere an offence my readers would never
forgive. But ns instancing to what awful
passes the poetical impulse enn force somo
men, I propose to cite simply the one ex
ample nppeutled:
"The Sopped Sun toper ns ever drank
hard
Stares foolish, hazed,
Rubicund, dazed,
Totty with thine October tankard."
til
No wonder, then, that Bliss Carman,
biuitelf a newly -crowned god of the so
called "verltist" school of which more
anon writ ing in that exquisite new
thing, the fortnightly "Chap-Book" (Stono
& Kimball, Chicago), is moved to say uf
Thompson: "Imagination ho certainly
has, as several of his lines ntto?t, flaring
aud undoubted; but it is an imagination
uncouth aud nuscuooled. I has never had
its hair cut. Ho cannot depend upon it.
It dances before him like a Jack-o'-lantern
nml leads his judgment down wofnl,
dark ways Ot llintv diction, where the for
lorn reader toils after him, distraught and
out of temper, only to b; bogged at last lu
some ferocious sulecism of idiom anil
good taste. lis ha3 ma le an indulgence of
Browni.ig. The pardonable sins of that
great master have become in him n loath
some habit. There was lu Browning's
voice an occasional wayward accent, a
personal Inflection, that removed much of
his work from tho perfect sphere of tho
great normal English, the poetry where
nil individual tones are submerged in the
single Oeauty of a compl itely simplo ex
pression. A id this wayward accent, this
wholly prrsoual mannerism, Mr. Thomp
son has acquired ami elevated into a dia
lect." It from this fi'idiag our friends in
the Wilkes-Bui ro Brownhlg society should
dissent, their qa inel, be it understood, is
with Carman, not wuh us.
It there be affectation in tho writing of
verse, shall we daro deny that there is af
fectation in the r. ading thereof? How
many agree with tho ulilitnriHii theory
that poetry is cood only as it supplies a
literary nans tlep sit suDJect to quotatlou
at draft? It this saino delighfnl little
pamphlet. "Chap-Book," there writes one
who obviously doesn't. His idea is that
"to read woll is to make an impalpable
snatch nt whatever takes your eye, and
run." And ha mournfully Inquires, with
a mental eye on just oaeh persons as our
Browningite friends iu Luzerne, "Is
there no fun left in Israel? Have wo to
endure It, for our sins, that a super-civilization
in- ists on being vaccinated by the
poor little poets who have brought no in
strument along but their lyre? Can wo no
longer ing without the constraint of feed
ing separately to the hearer what rhetoric
is tn us, what theory of caesural pauses,
what original and sequences, what occult
because non-existout symbolism? Without
setting up for oracles of dark import, and
ptisiug romantically as 'greater than wo
know'?" Unknown friend, hero's a
hand. Shake, in mutual distaste for the
fail that makes art a mere mechanism of
ribs nnd dressing.
PREDICTS A RiVOlUTION.
Wayne ii'feirnrftnf.
A revolution is coming in type-setting.
It may be some lime before it reaches tho
country office, but it is surely coming and
composltii n by hand will then be a thing
of tho past. Scores of daily newspapers
have already adopted somo" one of the
several type-setting machines now on the
market and ns soon as the cost of them is
lowered they will be placed in tbo ofllces
of weekly papers. The spinning jenny
came to the wt avers, the harvester and
lender to the farmers, and now the type
setting machine is coming to tho piftiters.
The march of labor-saving machinery is as
steady as tho movement of the world and
no oue with intelligence would wish to re
sist it, because tho fields of industry al
ways have aud doubtless always will sup
ply work for all to tlo, unless interfered
with by unnatural laws of man's making.

The South Sideboard of trade held its
regnl ir monthly meeting last night.
After the pussage of preliminary rou
tine business, C- G. Poland, always an
earnest champion of street improve
ment, took the lloor and advocated
some means whereby .the wretched
condition of m tny streets would be
bettered. An informal discussion
among the members resulted from Mr.
Bolanil'e introduction, and the matter
was disposed of by a motion to etir up
tbe streets and bridges committee of
councils. Iu the discussion on tho
street question the proposed improve
ment of Mattes street was the earnest
sentiment of the bnrd that thecaso is
in need of attention in u bnrry.
A few bills wert) read and approved
and new btmness was taken up. Under
this heart the poor attendance at meet
ings received attention. All present
were of tho opinion that if tho meeting
night were cuuugnd to some other date
manv that are now compelled to attend
other meetings ou the same night
would be present. Accordingly the
date of meeting was changed from the
first Tuesday night of each mouth to
the second Friday night, the change to
take cfftiOt ut the uext meeting, which
will be assembled ou Friday, July 13.
Park Commissioner T. J. Moore then
brought up tho lake proj-ct, and it wiib
enthusiastically received. The num
bers mot the idea in a business like
way nnd by motion and unanimous
consent it was decided to agitnte it be
fore both councils and also labor with

to secure a lake for Connell park.

What promised to be a st irmy ses
sion of the new organiz ition of the
Lackawanna township school board
Inst night tu No. 3 stiuool, Miuouka,
disappointed the expectant oue', as it
resulted in just tho opposite.
The cuusw of the anticipated billows
arose from the claim of Robert Bur
leigh that ho was entitled to a seat,
beiug elected iciio )1 director for three
years over his opponout Michael Shoe
bun. But. Burleigh included in bis
total vote tbo vote cast iu BelleVU;,
which was a part of the city of Scran
ton. For that reason the Democrats on
the board objected to eeatiug him.
Burleigh met thoir objections with thv
point that if anything irregular hap
pened a contest within tho time speci
fied by law should be instituted against
him. No contest was proceeded with
aud the thirty days' limit to bring con
tests, had expired and for that reason,
as he was declared elected on tho fac
of the returns, he was eutitled to the
seat. That convinced the Democratic
members and. be was admitted as u
member.
Tho board then completed its organ
ization. Philip Boaoh was eiocted
chairman ; Griffith T. Davis, treasurer,
and Patrick Higgins, secretary.
