The Departments of the Lackawanna
Association Marvels of
Few people about the city who are
not acquainted with the establishment
have any idea of the magnitude of the
business of the immense stores of the
Lackawanna Store AssoeUtioD, limited,
sitnateJ at cornor of Lackawanna and
Jefferson avenues, To people ac
quainted with the eoneeru, however,
and to the wholesale trade the status
of the "company store" Is well and
A trip through the Various depart
ments of the store cannot fail to con
vince one that it Is one of the most
complete and most admirably arranged
establisbmenta of the kind in the eouu
try. The four main departments may be
entered from Lackawanna avenue. The
lower store next to the new office of the
Laokawanna Iron and Coal company
is to devoted to dry goods, dress goods,
notions, gents' fnrnisbings, etc., and is
replete with a large stock of the finest
fabrios in its partiealar lines.
Stepping from the dry goods depart
ment one enters the grooery store which
contains an immense stock of first-class
groceries and canned goods of every
The next store is devoted to hardware
and miners' supplies. Boots and shoes
are also sold ou this floor.
Directly over the hardware and boots
and shoe department li situated the of
fice of Mr. James S. Mott, general man
uger of the store, and also of the sontb
store and grist mill, On this floor may
be found an immense stock of ladies
fine shoes of almost every description,
inciaaing buivp, Turners and otrjer
well known mukus, and a comfortable
room for those who desire to order
shoes by special measurement direct
from the manufacturers. In fact there
is scarcely any style of shoe made that
is not fonnd on the shelves of the com
pany store shoe department.
I he third floor is devoted to sheet
rubber packing and leather belting and
is used as a general store room, also for
supply stock for all departments. The
oasement is used as an immense store
room, where the heavy groceries, mine
supplies, etc, are kept, and directly
back of the store is a most complete lie
house and cold storage rooms for the
reception of vegetables, batter, etc.
A large water pipe runs throueh all
the departments, which are heated bv
steam, and fire pings are situated at
various points, with hose attached
ready for instant use, muds to connect
with city fire hose it neeesssry.
Throughout the entire establishment a
spirit of good order and cleanliness pre
vails, and the manner in which the
business is conducted tbrouehont re
flects great credit upoa the manage

and courteous treatment are guaranteed
to all. Goods can be returned and
money refunded if not satisfactory.
This store whs started when Scranton
was a village and has grown with the
city. The employes of the Lacka
wanna Iron and Steel company have
received all the benefit possible, but all
are welcome. An inspection of the
building and contents will prove the

SCRANTON IN 1896.
That Will Be the Cry of Deligatse to
State Endsavor Convention.
A special meeting of the Scranton Chris
tian Endeavor nnlon was held at the
ifoung Men's Christian association rooms
yesterday, when It was decided that the
nnlon forego making an effort for holding
the convention of 1S95 in Scranton, I oat,
much as there was a lack of accommoda
tion for holding of meetings, and espe
cially as tbe nnlon of V-.rk, Pa., where
this year's convention will be held, Is pre
paring for nearly 8,000 delegates outside of
others who will attend.
Efforte will be made, however, for hold

That tbe Improved Order of Ilepta
sopbs know how to have a good time
themselves aud share their festivities
with a large number of friends was
shown by the entertainment given tn
Mnsio hall night under the auspices of
Eliotrlo City conclave, No. 295.
From tbe opening of an interesting
programme at 8 o'olock until the last
sandwich and swallow of ice-water
had disappeared In the early hours of
this morning the jovial feeling of
good-fellowship did not falter nor the
halo of welcome grow dim. One of
the most commendable features of the
eveuing wits the faot that the Hepta
sophians were anxious to share their
good time with the guests who equalled
the members In numbers.
The main hall was deeorated with
palms and ferns and filled with mem
bers and guests, while the following
programme was rendered:

of Heptasophs, its aims and what
tbe word means. As Supreme Archon
Brown stated In his address, hepta
means "seven and soph means "wise,"
and Heptasophs applies to the seven
wise men. Its principles includes fra
ternity and an insurance death benefit.
