vices That Will Be Held on Sunday.
Brief Synopsis ot Mr. Moody's Talk
Last Night In the Elm Park Church.
At the Moody services yesterday at
Elm Park churoh tbe edifice was
taxed to its utmost seating eapaoity,
In the evening and the afternoon audi
ences completely filled the auditorium
and main gallery, and was distributed
over a portion of the rear ball
la tbe evening Mr. Moody treated of
th" Mi-ricteri8tics of supposed Curls
tuns ;.ud described tbe birth of the
plrlt ia man. He said:
It 1 asked you if Jesus of mzaratu
taught the truth you'd all vote "yes."
Just as important n ques, ion is "have
you been born again of the spirit from
above? (Jurist taught that there 1
only one way to enter tbe kingdom of
God and that is to be boru of tbe spirit.
Trinity, redemption and justification
are not clearly understood until one
has been born of the spirit.
Going to cbnrcb or being a sister or
brother of an arobdeacon don't make
you a Christian; villains go to church
to hide their rascality. It's like saying
a prayer aud not praying. Why, when
was a little bov, II 1 was saying,
Now I lay me," and my brother
kicked me from the bed, I'd swear at
him. Christianity, the new birth, is
now malting vows, crying over funeral
sermons and tbe like. You might as
well say a deud man has life as to say
that a mnn has a heart and has not
Christ. K a photographer came in to
this city to take pictures ol people i
hearts he wouldn t find a customer,
You conldn't hire 'em to submit to It.
The pioturs of man's heart is defiled.
Will any deny it? Get tbe heart right
and the foot, eye, hand and life will be
right a new life, a new spirit born
leant conceive a greater plea sure
than to rocoive God's nature. Ail
things of Heaven are heavenly. There's
mighty truth in tbe fable of tbe
crane, which, after listening to tne
story of tbe swan about heaven, didn't
want to go into God kingdom be
oause ia Heaven there were no snails
If God can save the vilest drunkard
or harlot who walks tbe streets ol
Scranton tonight, don't you think he
could save you 1 Let your heart be
willing and let the spirit come.
ABOUT WORLDLY PLEASURES.
At the afternoon service Mr. Moody's
remarks struck a particularly popular
vein from the laot that he dwelt upon
card-playing, tbeater-going and other
cnBtoma considered within the realm
of worldly things. Ilia opinion is that
whatever pleasures one undertaken,
those pleasures are proper if one has
the grace of God with him: but in view
of God having provided so many better
things, he doubted if any one enthused
with the grace ot God would enter
into the so-called worldly pleasures,
After announcing "Overcoming Life
as his subject he said that material
birth is not sufficient; one most be
born of the spirit. Tbe fact that the
most worthy Biblical characters fell
through, the weakness ot tbeir sup
posed strongest points is applicable to
men ol today. "Tbe man wbo over-
cometh his own faith is greater than
him who taketh a city." In battle
many a li:e has been lost through un
der-estimating tbe strength of tbe
enemy, and the observation is true of
tbe lust, jealousy, covetousness. tem
per and other weaknesses of mankind,
Mr. Woody averred that the surest
core for these sinful characteristics is
open confession and apology to the
CLASSIFICATION OP LIAR&
Hd divided liars into the following
classes: Political, social, business,
fashionable, white and black liars,
whose cure bs guaranteed if they fol
lowed the prescription for covetous
ness. jealousy, etc The medicine is so
unpalatable tbat tbe disease will stop
out of resnect for the cure.
"These border Christians," he said,
'people wbo try to live both worldly
and Christian lives, get more clubbing
than any other class; tbey have the
respect of neither Christian nor worldly
people. I have been asked to smoke;
I don't smoke because I would lose my
self-respect and would lose my cbances
of being able to influence others; I
don't know one playing sard from an
other for tbe same reason. I've been
asked why I don't go to the theator; be
cause I'd rather eat dirt, because I can
find better things to do. HA. lady asked
me wby I was opposed to theater'
going, but admitted that she had never
beard me preach against it. I don't
preach against these things, but I do
preach that any man wbo follows these
practices while reeling taat ne might
do something better is guilty of sin.
"If you can play progressive enohre
with the grace of God play it; if you
cannot do this then give it up, Shall
you overcome the world or shall it
overcome yon? Everything grows, sin
grows; now are you getting a viotory
over desires within or tbe world with
out! If any question develops in your
mind between the world and Christ,
eive the latter tbe benefit of the doubt.
" 'He tbat overcometb. shall inherit
all things. ' Even persecution and ridi
cule should not sway you from tbe

WANTED TO SHAKE HER HUSBAND.
Iks Asktd tht Poor Board to As
sist H.r to D So.
The meeting of tho poor board yester
day was for a while on the breezy line.
Mr. Gibbons made a number of speeches,
with the result that bis views were adopted
In each case that came before tho board
The first one was the case f Mary
Judge, whose parents live in Dunmore.
Last May the girl took the grip and tho
sickness unbalanced bur mind. Her
parents sent her to a private institution
in Philadelphia. After four weeks' con
finement she appeared to regain her reason
and was sent home, bat wus not long at
home until symptoms ot dementia again
began to develop. She was sent back to
Philadelphia where she is at present.
Colonel ti. M. Doles became interested
and appeared with an intercession, asking
tbe board to take charge of the case, and,
when the board agreed to do so aud was
about to make au order for her admit
tance to tbe insane department of the
Hillside home, Colonel Boies thought that
it would be a more beneficial step for tho
giri if she were sent to Danville, where
she would be better taken care of. Mr.
Gibbons objected to sending the girl to
Danville, stating that the facilities at tbe
home were fully as sumcient as at uan
ville. After a short discussion, the case
was referred to a committee of three with
power to act.
Tbe usual number ot applications ror
relief were heard and granted. Mrs.
Joseph ine Ike appeared and wanted trans
portation to Stroudsburg. After some
questioning, which she replied to iu a
very sharp manner, Secretary Lynett
asked her if she wanted u ticket for her
husband too, she roplied, "fto, no, I want
to hhake him."
The report of Superintendent G. W.
Beemer, of the Hillside home, for tho
month of August showed that the 151
males and 104 fomale paupers and forty-
seven insane paupers are kept ut the home.

The board of health bad a most inter
eating meeting yesterday afternoon.
When tbe routine preliminary Business
had been passed Sanitary Officer Burke
xnlained that it was tbe order ot
Health Officer Allen to him to swear
out a warrant and serve it on Michael
Hand, proprietor of the Meadow Brook
brewery, for dumping into the Stafford
Meadow brook retnss rrom tne
brewery, polluting the stream and be
coming accessory to maintaining a
nuisance, Tbe warrant was sworn out
accordingly and was about to be served
the day Mr. Hand was tnrown irom
his carriage and injured. Since then
the nuisance bus been abated, inetoi-
lowiug report was submitted by Health
Durins tbe month of August the work
ot the health department has been as satis
factory as possible. The councils are do
ing everything to facilitate matters aud if
property holders in certain districts ot the
citv would show a little wlinngnoss to cor
rect some bad conditions themselves, it
would be still better.
The little Lackawanna river, I am happy
to say, is deodorizing and disinfecting tbe
sewage ol the city in lis usual style,
notwithstanding the long drought, but
whore would we bo if the mine pumps
should stop running for a few days?
Councilman Roche is earnestly advocating
n councils the erection ot a city market
house, a consummation most devoutly
to bo wished lor. Thero certainly is a
crying need for one in this city. Hcranton
is behind little towns ot 10,000 inhabitants
all ovor tho state.
A STRIKE AT WOODEN PAVES.
Should this materialize lower Penn ave
nue might become less unclean, though
not docent while tho rotten old blocks re
main in the street. The familiar aroma
from the bono ambulances is now a thing
of the past, as covered motallic cans serve
to do the work perfectly.
I would suggest to the board that postal
card blanks be furnished to physicians
anu nudwives, especially tne intter. as i
am informed thoy have charge of most of
the coses and seldom roport. The birth
list should be in excess of tbe death rate
here and would be if correctly reported,
Tho conrt between Sumuor and Brom
ley avenues, above Swotlaud street, is in a
bad condition aud can not be remedied un
til the conrt is cruded. The nuisance at
Deacon street can be easily corrected by
connecting with a privat sewer which
empties iuto the river. The street com
missinner declines doing this as the street
is not graded. Iborouro streets, courts
and pluces in this city that have been
opened and built upon for thirty years
aud have never been given a grade. XI all
such streots could be graded, thore would
be tew standing pools leit.
Tbe mortality for the month of
August showod a total of 130 deaths as
against 1G1 in July. So far this year
1,03j deaths have occurred. Births for
tbe month amounted to 172, and con
tagious diseases to 21.
OCR WATER SUIT'LY.
A communication from City Clerk
Martin T. Lavelle relating to the water
supply was read. 1 be sanitary com
mittee of councils sent a recommenda
tion to the board that the city water be
analyzed once a month and tbe result
submitted to the committee. This met
with favor, but Colonel Ripple ex
plained that at a very conservative cal
dilation the expense ot snch wonld be
at least $15 for each reservoir, of which
more are five, making a total of $
per month, and there is no appropria
tion to cover this expense.
By motion it was decided to notify
councils to make an appropriation nec
essary. Health Ollicor Allen reported
tunt west .Lackawanna avenue was
suffering from lack of sanitation and
genoral uncloanlnees, and he added
that if the street commissioner were
instructed to flush it twice a week,
there might be some relief obtained,
The suggestion was put into effect by
borne time ago tbe property owners
living along Sanderson creek in Green
Ridgo, who had been using tbe creek
at the basin for all their sewage, were
notified to desist, and at the same time
an effort was made to make provision
whereby they could connect with
private sewer. The arrangements fell
through and tbe families were ordered
to cease using the creek, as the stuff
was carried to tbe doors of people liv
ing below it, making life almost intol
erable in tbat vicinity.
In compliance 'with the suggestion
in tbe report of Dr. Allen in regard to
disinfecting Penn avenue between
Lackawanna avenue and Center street.
on motion of Colonel Ripple the board
resolved to purchase a street sprinkler
and with it sprinkle the market place
each day with water saturated with
