the last meeting to inquire into tho
mutter of securing a permanent trained
nurse presented the following report,
after which the meeting adjourned:
To the board of poor directors of the
cranton poor district:
Your special committee to which was ro
forred tho question of securing a trained
nurse in the permnuent service of the
board for tho care of the sick among the
outdoor poor of the district hereby report
tuat we ciiliea tbo outuoor physicians In
conference at a meetiug of the committee
nt the poor board rooms on Aug. 0. Tho
subject was thoroughly discussed by your
committee and the physicians.
Our outdoor physicinus state that thero
are few cnnes In which tho services of a
trained nurRe is necessary. A Inrge pro-
Eortion of the sick poor people prefer to
e cared for by their friouda.
We have concluded that however desir
able the services of a trained nurse may
do in special cases, we Uo not think It
either necessary or dosirable to retain a
trnined nurse permanently as a mere vis
itor of the sick between whom and the at
tending physicians conflicts may arise, oc
casioning aunoyanco to the board and
damaiio to our present excellent medical
We therefore recommend that in all
cases where the services of a trained nnrse
are necessary an effort bu made to have
the patient admitted to a hospital, and on
failure, to secure hospital accomodations,
or when it is dangerous to remove the pa
tient the director of the district be author
ized as heretofore to secure the services
of a traiued nnrse and whatever else may
be necessary for the comfort and proper
enreof the patient.
A GRAND PRODUCTION.
E lobar d III Will Delight the Crltloi
Nrxt Wednotday Night.
From a source unquestioned as to its
veracity, it is learned that Richard III
at the I'rothingham next Wednesday
night will be on a scale of beauty and
msgninoence never attempted here be
fore. Play-goers are assured of a most
graceful and artistic interpretation
of the leading roles and a thoroughly
reailstio presentation of tho thrilling
battle, an entertaining spectacular cor
onation, and a most impressive funeral
procession. These are details that nr
not present at the average tragedy pro
duction. Mr. Owen D. Jones will surprise
many I y his artistic handling of Rich
ard, giving a genuinely attractive ren
dition of this exacting role. Mr. Jos
eph Ransoma mny be deponded on to
repeat his form t 8iiccses in II.nry
VI and Richmond, while the beautiful
Miss Alice Firchild, last ye'ir leading
lady with the Rune . Coghlan company,
and long with Frederick Warde, tho
famous tragedian, may be deponded on
for a finished presentation of Queen
Elizabeth. Miss Tillie Lewis will bo
seen at her best in the Duchess of
York, and Miss Kittie McCabe will not
disappoint as Lady Anne. All in all
the playgoers of Scranton may antici
pate something exceedingly fine in the
forthcoming production of Richard at
the Frothingham next Wednesday
evening. The sale of reserved seats
will begin at Powell's musio store on

sionA Fast Track and Good
Fields Details of the Sport.
The usual number of persons wit
nessed the races of the G'titlemen's
Driving club yesterday. Generally,
the heats were closely contested and
the truck was fast.
Although the first race was announc
ed to re, culled at 2 o'clock it was
r.i:i! 'v it half hour later before the
liorsea were called to the post for the
first bent and the lint heat of the last
race was not decided until S 45
o'clock. Without disparaging the
efforts of the club to provide clenu
and sprited sport, there is a
vast firld for improvement in
leing more expeditions. The twenty
minutes allowed between heats of pro
fessional races is to glre the public
'line to make bets and is the custom
where mile heats are trotted. At tho
Driving club's rncos only half-mile heats
are drivou, and with a 5-minute Wait
between the heats of encit rnco the
animals would have a 20-miuute rest
That is the way the grandstand audi
ence of yesterday commented, and as
the success of Xht club's races depends
upon its ability to please the spectators,
the proper officers will probably reetify
the mutter at future meetings.
DASH WAS A P.INGER,
Yesterday's road race and 2 50 event
were won handily by Frank Ilazznrd's
Dash and Dr. Hill's Jack. The former
made his debut on the track and went
both heats under a strong pull. Ho
dearly proved himself eligible to the
2. SO class and will probably bo ad
vaucod to that event the next time be
The H-minnte and 2 40 classes devel
oped the best events of the meeting.
I. n quired five heat3 to decide the
former, St. Nick being scratched after
being driven two heats and Kitty be
ing withdrawn after coming in hope
lessly last in tho first heat. The three
horses remaining were never separated
ty more than a row lengths in the last
three heats and kept the crowd on tip
toe until tho race was decided.
The star performers of the day Bp-
pearea in tua 2.4'J event, and proved
conclusively that horse racing purely
conducted is indeed the "sport of
Kings. Magnolia proved herself the
speedier of the high grade qulntetto of
entries. Three heats were trotted, and
never until the stretch was reaobed at
lesst, was a heat a sinecure for the
winner. Magnolia's victory was a pop
pultir one, as she had a host of admir
ers among tho spectators, but the re
sult might hav9 been different if Ab.i
gail bad not had a fit of the sulks after
capturing the first heat.

in the first place the rocky Lsinghnm-

over them. I have been governed in

of members of the National board,
especially President Byrnes, of tha

"Will you attend the meeting of tue

A ROAST FOR DIDDLEBOCK.
"If I did. I would be as big an ass ns

Speaking of the Scranton club Mr.
Powers stated in his opinion it is able
to cope with any club in the Eastern
league. The m-m lack team work hut
that difiiculty will be overcome in a
short time. They will also bespurrei

the men believe that thoro is a feeling
against thorn hor on account of the
ciiango In management and the sooner
they are convinoed to the contrary tho
sooner thoy will pitch iu with a Tim to
show what they can do.
The Scranton club will be greatly
strengthened for today's game. White

been signed to nlay third and pitcher
respectively. Wnitohead arrived hero
last night and will play third today,
Hiokey going to right field.
Allentown has secured Duryen, of

other kicker who is wanted, will come

gation will hereafter be known as the
Yonkers club. They will play all their
home games on the New York Polo
grounds, opening up there with Buffalo
on Sept. 7. The schedule will be ar
ranged so that Yonlcers and JNew iorK

beer is sold and daucinir indulged In. in
order to make money to pay fur church in-

tian would pay for hh Individual urotiertv
or his private bills aft or that mtuner, and
it is not right for any church, of whatever
denomination, to do it. It is wrong, It is
a fin, and canm t bo blemod of God.
when the tabernacle was built In the
wilderness, aud th temple in Jerusalem,
the Jews never thought ot paying for
them by beer selling and dai.clng. They
brought their offerings and laid them on
the altar of the Lord, without expectation
of anything iu return. That is tbo Christ
ian and Biblical way, and npou such offer
ings the bles-dues of God will rest.
If the Christiun church bold fairs and
picnics with beer-vending and dancinir.
where is the line ot deniarkatlon between
the church of Christ ami the world? We
should not only be Christians on Sunday
when at worship, but also every week day
