THE SCKAXTON TRIBUNE SA TTJBDAY MOUSING, OCTOBER C, 1894. A - A 1 Reader of this column will be inter ested in a brief account of one of tbe most original aud unique weddiug an niversaries celebrated iu this region. It illustrates wbat an ingenious boat aud hostess can do to relieve tbe gath ering of even tbe slightest degree of formal stiffness. Allusion ia made to tbe celebration of tbe twenty-flret an niversary of Professor and Mrs. C. Coles at'Kiugston recently. The word "Welcome" was emblaz oned over the portal, aud indeed made each Kuewt feel that the occasion was to mean something at least more than a mere matter of social form. On en tering the door the visitors were greeted by Professor Cole attired in his wed ding suit of more than a score of years before. This happy deviance from tbe stereotyped custom of being admitted by a servant and not meeting the host until after descending from the dressing-room, was the second notable ab sence of conventionality. The guests were agreeably disap pointed in any anticipations tbey may nave had of "refreshments" included in the same old, old list of salad, rried oysters, patties, hashed chicken sand wiches, chips, ice cream, coffee and rake. Instead of "refreshments," which makes one's flesh creep nowa days if attending more than two social attairs a week, an "astrological lunch" was served by the host aud hostess nnd their daughter. It was the most uovel feature of the evening and was a'- artistic as it was original. The lunch was selected by chance from an elaborate menu, each person being restricted to a half dozen arti cles, though later no restriction of kind o; quality was made. This was done by passing a plate of cards, blank side up, containing' the names of the arti cles on the menu list. Each guest drew six cards, and was supplied with the articles corresponding to tbe name on the card. If the guest drew more than one of a kind: he was permitted another chance, announcing aloud his choice. Each article was appropri ately illustrated on the card, as follows: Hetrt Sandwich, Fried Chicken, i ocoa uake, Variety Candy, Garfield Grapes, J cm) Banana, JJHon Pencil. Pickled Candy, Bmoked Oyster. Proverb Biscuit, Cream Blocks, Apple and Pear, Wince Pickle, Steamed Tea, citron uake, Lemonade, Mars Cake, Fruit Ctke, Cone Pie, Jelly (ieiua. Potato Chip. Sliced Orange, Mince Celery, Salmon, filtered Coffee, Pickled Apple, Warn Piid, ctweei rotato tuocits. - rms original "Menu" win be pre served as a memento of the memorable event.

THE FATE OF THE SMITH FAMILY A Local Opera Thai Contained Merit, but Died Young Musical Novelties at the Frothlngham The Success of the Oratorio Society Bethany to Be Presented by a West Side Choir. The Coming Appearance of Madame Blauvelt in Scranton Princess Bon nie on the Road Miscellaneous Notes. For the Satnrday Tribune, Mr. and Mr. Sum Speek of Philadel phia have been In this vicinity recently. having bfn snmtnonei by the death f a relative. Tbe visit of Mr. Speck recalls to mind the presentation of Speek anil Niven' comic opera "Tbe bmltb Family" which were given In this cltv toin years ago. The opra wa brought oat by Wilkes-Burr a in i. tenri, and npon it first presentation In Scranton many prominent society and musical people of Wilkes Birr were inolnded in tue exit. Substqiv ntly the opera whs purchased by J. Uldgway Wright and an attempt was made to bring it into pnblio favor. Tbe com position was taken to Pniladepbia and the libretto wai re-written with tbe view of reducing the east of ohuraut-is Hnd tbe name of "smith Family was dropped. When the "Smith Fa mily' was again presented in Scranton, abont five or six year ago. It wa under tbe name of Elanor, 1th Ida Mali in the title role. Upon tbe last presentation In Scranton tbe opera was handsomely mounted and wac Interpreted by an excellent com- paiy. The aire were tunerni ana catchy: tbe libretto was bright, but tor tome resson tbe opera was not a snccsss, and attar a brier icaion on tne road tbe company disbanded and "Tbe Smith Family" wa placed upon tbe record ot mytteriout failure. Myster ious becsnse it was a failare in tbe year when success smiled npon enter prise that bad uota shadow ot merit as compared with tbe work of Messrs Speck and Niven. Mr. Speek is now manager of the Standard theater of Putlad.lphia. II II II Mrs H. E. A.

Mrs. Beaeb. as Amy Marcy Cheney, aWeut ten years ago, was in troduced to the music loving world, a mis in short drtases, who wis ad- jadged by musical connoisseurs to b a phenomenon in piano forte playing. Almost before she had time to make good their prophtstee Dr. Beacb, who is old enough to be her father, made ber hie second wife, and induced her to withdraw from public life. She now plays in public only occasionally for charity. II II II The Scranton Oratorio coolety met on Monday evening at Powell's music store for its first rehearsal under Rich ard Lindsay. About seventy -five mem bers were present. Work wa com tuenced in earnest upon Cowan's "Koe Maiden, whioh will be presented by tbe society later In the season.

Woman, it is claimed by high au thority, has the advantage of man as regards longevity; she sutlers less trom accidents, injuries and many forms of disease; sue is, in fact, more tenacious than man of tue limited enjoyments allowed her. Dr. Brandreth Symonds has collected and studied a large num ber of statistics to illustrate tills inter estiug fact. The comparative mortal ity of tha sexes at different ages shows tnat in tne nrst year or lire tne mortal ity of the female is much less than that of the male, being at birth 92.04 per 1,000 as against 112.80, and at tbe end of the vear 31.87 as against 35.03. The difference continues up to the fourth vear. From 5 to 12 the female mortali ty is greater than that of tbe male, being at the latter period 3.56 for males and 4.28 for females. At the age of 40 tbe male mortality equals that of the female, toe latter naving been up to this time slightly in excess. During the years 46 and 56, the period of the climacteric, the male mortality gains rapidly on tbe female, being 0.32 per annum for the one and only 3.47 for the other. Hence the climacteric is really a much more serious time for man than for woman. After 55 the female mortality gains on that of the male, but is always slightly below it. Woman nas not only a less mortality, but greater longevity than man. There is, also, a plurality of female blrtbs. It II II A enp of clam broth made from fresh clams and unseasoned is a most accept able bit of nourishment after a sick headache. Often the stomach will tol erate it when all other forms of food are exceedingly distasteful. The broth should be made strong and can then be diluted according to taste. A little of it may be frozen, or diluted with ice- water. If cold rood is advisable. If at a distance from supplies, it is well to have few Dot ties of clam mice in tne storeroom. II II II Fleshy women should avoid every thing in the shape of liquors (especially beer), starchy cereals, like cornmeal, hominy, rye, oatmeal and brown bread; also they should avoid too much seasoning in tlie way of salt, pepper or sauces; these ceate an unnatural thirst which nothing but liquid of some kind can quench. And water enters largely into tue composition ot tat. Meats can be eaten freely, as they enter into mus cle, not fat. Fleshy people should ex ereise vigorously every day and not. be given to too many hours of sleep. They should also sleep on hard beds; rani pering the body in habits of luxury predisposes oue to embonpoint. II II II A noteworthy feature of the congress of physicians at Vienna a few days ago was the discussion of the discovery of i rotessor Uehring, of Halle, or a cure for diphtheria by the inoculation of the i .i , i . 4 I,. 1 1 i moon oi uif parieni wim uioou serum, Professor liehriiig, in an interview said It was his belief that his discovery would eventually tie applied as a cure for typhus fever, cholera and ptieu monla He contended that inocula tion for diphtheria ought to be com piilsnry, the fame as in the treatment of smallpox. During the debate in the congress, rroiessor unriicn, or Herun stated his belief that the milk of inocu lated animals would tend to asxist in effecting cures. In support of Profes sor Hen ring's Idea he held that blood serum was as powerful against dtpn therla as vaccine wm against small pox. The present expense of procur ing the blood serum puts it beyond tne reach of most persons, as it is manu factured in only two places in Ger many, in Hoechst, near Frankfort, and Berlin. Two Injections of the remedy cost $7.20, and as many cases require six, the costliness of the treatment may readily be seen. Despite tne expense however, the treatment haa already been applied to a great extent in tbe larger hospitals In Germany and Aub tria. II II II Health for thi Million: Don't use towels provided for general use in publio lavatories, restaurants and sometimes hi schools. They have been found by microscopic investiga tion to contain bacteria ot several con tagious diseases. Don't swallow grape seeds. They were not meant to form part or any civilized man's meal. Imagine your stomach trying o digest teacupful of peDbies. urape seeds are even worse than pebbles, because their sharp ends tear the delicate lining of the stomach and intestines and may at any time lodge somewhere inside one ana play navoc HONORS TO y le b Presented With the Freedom of the Cltj of Inrerness. FORMALLY WEDDED TO THE BURGH A Strange Experiment With Ocean Steam Cutters Civilization Appa rent on the Criminal Records. Lillian Russell'i Notable First Night Gusty Harris's New Drama. For ike Saturday Tribunt. The Earl of Rose ber v on opening the annual exhibition of Highland in dustries and arts at Inverness, Scot land, was presented with the freedom of the city. He was assured by "Pro vost" K.)ss that all parlies in tbe burg, Whig and Tory alike, had sunk political differences and with heartv good will welcomed the prime minister of the Highlands. Lord Rosebery commenced his speech with a sly dig at the critics who look with distrust upon his so-called "youthfulness," and remarked that the days were approach ing when a man would come of age at fifty or sixty! He apiluuded the sen timent that prompted the people to combine to honor bun and at the same time lay aside all their polit cal differ ences of opinion, and regarded such a feature as singular and peculiar to this country alone, aud explained his rea sons for his asseveration by pointing to the age of the countrv and the long p oliticaleducation and experience its nbaoitants nave undergone. He re marked with some warmth that "he could not go over the long line of statesmen who have held cabinet office since the beginning of the century and nnd one who has lett a name to be ashamed of." Throughout the speech was of a social nature aud carefully avoided party polities. Lord Rose bery was presented with a massive gold ring to commemorate his being "wedded to tne burgu." Owners of steam cutters are not con tent with the carrying capacity of their steamers and are about to start a some what strange experiment. The steam ersuill in the near future tug barges in tneirvan, tne said barges carrying 800 to 1 ,000 tons of coal. A number of barges are being specially built for the sea trade between tbe Humber and the rhames. The barges will be battened down at the port of departure and will not carry any steering gear. The latest tning in torpedo boats is "just out." The latest thing's name Is the Daring, and is one of the fastest boats that has ever been constructed, its speed on a trial trip showing twenty-uine miles, In addition to n powerful torpedo equipment the Daring carrys one 12- pounder and three b-pounder quick bring guns. The miners In various parts of Scotland are still on strike and are causing considerable trouble. At a place called Motherwell a riot took place and the police had a somewhat ively time of it, several being injured. The latest is a telegram to Mr. Asquith, the house secretary, irom the secretary or the bcottmu Miners' federation "A brutal aud unwarrantable attack by English 'crastables on unoffending miners, women and children at Mother well last night, iliners urgently de mand immediate public inquiry by you in person." tor pure uuaduitur aled cheek this is hard to beat! A remarkable diniinuation in the number of convicts sent to peual servi tude is shown in last year's records of tbe prisons report. In 1859 the popn lation was 19,259,000, and the number of prisoners sentenced to penal servi tude was 2,589. Last year the Inhabl tants had increased by 10,000,000 and tbe penal servitude prisoners numbered only 833. Civilization cannot after all (despite alarming newspaper contribu tors) be a failure with such results to show. The hop pickers have had a wonder fully good year and wages ha,ve ruled high. The crops, despite the rain, are good generally nd the farmer is for lorn, for he really has but little to grumble at, which is distinctly hard Hues on the liritisn agriculturist. Sir Augustus Harris bas scored an other success with his new melodrama, Every Christmas "Gussy" produces ut old Drury Lane theater a new panto mime and the papers say the knight of the boards has once more surpassed himself, and every autumn he brings on a new drama and tbe critics aver that it is the "best thing Harris has giveu u," and indeed tbe "Derby Winner" Is worthy or great praise, The niece is full of daring novelties. In it ve have a woman who acts through one entire scene ou horseback, a "new" woman of theoigarette-smok ing-gum-slangy school, training sta bles, a race course and a real live race, a military bull and other "plums." A curious incident took place on the opening night. In the great race scene the awful "vtllitis" Uee-Uee should, or course, get a bad beating, whilst that of the hero should win hands down But the Inst named horse would do nothing but iibb, and instead of land ing 50,000, the aforexaid hero evident ly lost that amount. Many pieces would be abso'utely wre Red by such an incident, but the drama was of such an interesting character throughout that I lie uiisliun oul v caused good hti mored amusemeut. Harris, iu a short speech after tne fall ol the curtain scored" happily wheu he assured the audience that he was at thewinuiug post and saw the hero's horse come in nrst. Another notable first night was the fair Lillian Russell's appearance in a new piece entitled the "Queen of Bril liants." Lillian is of course the queen, Gil more' s Aromatic Wine A tonic for ladies.

Road racing among our wheelmen is extremely popular, especially on that roau Known as tne "north." uut our noble police authorities object to as much as the sportsmen love the excit ing tnougn somewhat dangerous road "scorching." So after warning the promoters of the "North road twenty four hours' ride," they posted them selves at intervals along the advertised route; but the wily wheelmen altered the track and the race came off, al though several competitors lost their way, aud the men in blue leant against the lamp posts and banks and only bad tbe satisfaction of taking the names and addresses of a few rash youths who chanced, riding after pro nihited hours without a lamp! Fon taine is aucged to bave covered 370 miles, while F. T. Bidlake only did 16 miles worse on a three-wheeler, which is a record. Willis. NtWS NOTES FROM WALES. Special to the Scranton Tribune, London. Sept. 28. Tne newt of tie musical wnr of Somotoa bat reaobtd little Wale, tad judging from tbt psitoqalitiat thi itsus bat been loat sight of. Tbe fight ia tbe column of 1UB Tribune ba gradually ttld IdIo au attaok aud dtftnie of Wtltb national mnsic. A brir skstch of W1iq matle at home may not be amiss. Walat ha alway been mutieal, and wltb Italy rank first In the musical world. For thi Bsncb is due to Carwen't tonla solfa system, or tbe new notation, a it it tomtimt called. Practically all the Sunday ttbool in Wale poises s tbe modulator which hang in tb ehool room, and almost every Sunday eobool rejoiee in one or mor gradu ate holding certificates of proBoleoty from Mr. Curwttn and at toon st children are abl to toeak they are regularly tent to tbe Sunday tchool to that one of the first things which many ohildren recollect is tbe scale of tht solar tytttm. The writer knowt teveral boyt of from eigbt to ten yeart of age, able to read at sight minor tnnet Dotnwitbttanding frequent accidental notss, Honee in a ohoir the majority, witbont exception are able to read musit and toon grasp the difficult detail of an anthem which otherwise would be taught by ear. So much for the early faoiluiet for musical trainiog, the result can be teen in very -village in Walet and in every chapel or chnroh oan tbe "dob, ray, nit" ot young voioes b btara . A few word with regard to the dis advantages under whioh th Welsh labor. We often bear the remark that if tbe Welsh are to uutiaal, how it it that they bare not produeed a Mozart, Handel or Haydn. Tbe an swer it easy, unfortunately the came it blind patriotism. Men like Dr. Parry, Owain Alaw, Ambrose Lloyd David Jenkint and other tbrongh een turlet have eompoted for the Welsh rxprteily and no one else, and on tbe other hand tbe Wtlth bave been satis fied with tht work of their own com posers, to that tbe ttyle and character lttict of tbt one hart been imbued by the other. It it the oil ory of Wale for tke Welih. Had there ben more enterprise or bad Dr. Jetepb rarrv lived in uermany ait name Intttad ot being known all over the . world to the Cymru would have been known to all musital nation. Wlb wordatet to music cannot be translated without losing the original charm, and tbe tame mty bt laid to a leu extent of tbe vice vena prooMS, sntb tt Sir Joseph Barnby't Antbem. ' O Lrrd How Manifold Art Tby Work," which touudi vory different in Welsh at coinpand with tho English rendition. Penile who are not cognizant with the p.callarltie of Wlh musi cian und their diaadvantaget tbould be (low to charge them with ignor ance of music until ttcy bavt inquire! a to wbetber ibe veun are not mm ten of the music they are accustomed to. If they did tbis, tbey would have reaaon to change tusir opiniont. Owbn.
