It in a curious fact that no one siRn
fo clearly Rives, evidence of the pre
vailing llower thali the boutoniere of
the very proper young num. and, for
that matter, the frayed lapel of the or
dinarily dressed individual is very
much in evidence just now. That this
is the season of Die tufted chrysanthe
mum goes without saying. The feath
ery flower In all Its ninny colored and
many sized glory is omnipresent and is
seen equally often on the precise frock
of the matter-of-fact business man,
Clasped to the waist of the high heeled
miss or borne In all its cabbage-head
proportions on the flat chest of the
Charley of cigarette and kid glove in
clinations. Kveryone is loyal to the
llower and everyone wears it.
If it wore believed that the chrysan
themum craze Is the product of a
scheme advanced a few years ago by
-New York florists for the sole object of
getting dollars nnd cents, the passion
for the flower might be somewhat les
sened. These New York florists, know
ing the hardiness of the blossom and
the simple process which makes it
bloom lu any desired color brought it
to the public's notice in an Ingenious
manner. They secured for n considera
tion the patronage and assistance of
some of the Impecunious New York
swelldom and advertised a "chrysan
themum show" to be given in the old
Jludlson Sipiare garden. The profits
of the first show and that of the year
following were divided between the
practical florists and needy society.
Each year following, the shows in
creased in splendor, variety and at
tendance until now it costs n pretty
penny to gaze nt society gazing at
The llower eventually became a fad
anil was even suggested as the nation
al llower when the rose, lilly-of the-vab
ley and daisy were set aside that the
graceful and natural golden rod of ple
blan birth should occupy the pinnacle
or national lloral worship. The failure
of the llorists in this last enterprise
cast no damper on the people's autumn
fad. In horrid yellow, washed-out
pink or in purple hue that gives nit art.
1st the nightmare it nods Its feathet
duster head from every conceivable
style of dress ami has come to stay.
But with all its misuse and abuse It Is
a handsome, gracerm llower when u
person of good taste kuows how to
wear it and lu what shade of color.

good facts for argument If they had
observed the amount of autumn nup

that of the spring, und even rivalling

A rally of young people from the Bap
tist churches or Lackawanna and a
portion of Wayjie county was held tit
the Penn Avenue Baptist church yes
terday. The afternoon session was
opened by a praise and prayer service,
nftcr which the president, Hev. D. C.
Hughes, conveyed the greetings of the
convention of Baptist churches recent
ly held at Altoona.
The "Allnute Heports" were then re
ceived, liev. James Fielding reporting
that at Dalton the Christian Endeavor
society had forty members. W. F.
Nye, on behalf of the Duryea church,
stated that they had fifty members on

Blakely church had a society of eighty
members and a boy's brigade was also

church reported that they were suffer
ing from a lack of young people to
curry on the work. Clifford church had
a society of fifty members, and the
Taylor church possessed a young peo
ple's union of twenty-five members.
Factnryvllle church had a Christian
Endeavor society of twenty-five mem
bers. Formerly H society of 175 mem
bers existed, but owing to the absence
or a proper constitution the society be
came extinct. Jackson Street Baptist
Church Endeavor soc iety was organ
ized in Alarch, ISM, with a membership
of forty, which had now increased to
eighty-five, penn Avenue church re
ported a nourishing society of loo mem
bers, and Aliss Hamilton stated that

Alis Sarah C. Krlgbaum read a papr
on "Junior Work." in which several
practical recommendations were placed
before the meeting. Hev. A. B. O'Neal
of Dun more, gave his "Echoes of the
Toronto Convention." The convention
was held .lolv in t " .-.i
i f i i - -.- .v. tW,n minuet -
I 1 11 1 In its enthusiasm, conversation and
iniuioers. Toronto was the best gov
erned city in this or any other land
it was a city where the Sabbath was
observed, nnd where no open saloons
or street car desecrated the peace and
quietness of the Lord's day. The first
echo he would bring was "the echo of
the great multitude of people, the 7,000
delegates who attended on behalf of
the Baptist Young People's Union of
The second echo was the echo of en
thusiasm. Those who hud attended
great gatherings remembered how
hearts were stirred and enthused in
such conventions. The most inspiring
scene was the "salutation of flags."
which was a wonderful idea conceived
by the general secretary in which all
the states, embraced by the union,
gathered around the Hag of their own
stale and a speaker representing each
slate made n short, crisp speech,
llclio of I diication.
The third echo was the echo or edu
cation, and especially the education of
young people for service; the pastors
present could well appreciate the great
need for the young people who could
serve Intelligently i u. ,..,,. nr lh(.
blessed Christ. He was a great believer
In educational work, as It created self
respect and helped to make missionary
Baptists of their young people. The
forth echo was the echo of loyally, and
tlie echo furthermore of denomina
tional loyalty; there were other echoes
of evangelization which pervaded the
entire convention, of missionary spirit
and last, the echo of consecration'
which he trusted would sink deep into
their hearts, If no other echo he had
mentioned would find its wuv tlieiv.
i Hev. W. J. Ford delivered the Ih-Mt of
the fi-minute addresses and said there
was more need of consecration than of
organization, and he sincerely wished
that In tills, the young people would re
turn to their homes more full of the
consecration to Christ, their master,
than of the details of the finest organi
zation that human skill could conceive.
Here was the great secret of the future
history of their society. Lot this be
their echo: "Loyalty and Consecra
tion." Hev. F. E. Jepson, of Carbondale,
followed and said that all organizations
had their three degrees of existence
their birth, youth and maturity and
their societies, he believed, had passed
Into the second stage, and soon, lie ex
pected, they would pass into maturity,
when they would bear fruit In the dis
tinct principles of their beloved de
nomination, hut the fruit of their work
depended upon the direction given by
the church' s to the movement, nnd he
hoped to in able to share in the golden
fruit fulness or the work, and offered
two suggestions for Its advancement

Wants Practical Results.
Itov. AL J. Wutkins. of Factory vllle,
spoke upon the necessity of directing
the enthusiasm of the societies In the
proper channels whereby the work
would bring about practical results.
Speaking of those who apologized for
the church, he said, that there ought to
lie no need which the church could not
Hev. Warren G. Patridge spoke upon
the necessity of the anointing of the
Holy Spirit In carrying on the work
of the society. The members ought not
to think of their own Individual socie
ties, butof nil, und especially the weaker
churches which that day had not re
reported any societies. God baptise
them with the true missionary spirit
to carry out the work.
One-minute prayers were conducted
by Luther Keller, Dr. Bcddoe, Hev. W.
J. Wutkins. The meeng then pro
ceeded to the work of organization und

A New I uion Formed.
A new union wus organized to com
prise the churches within the Abington
association for the purpose of consoli
dating the individual societies, nnd the
evening session, which was very largely
u tended, wus held under the auspice's
of this newly formed union. Hev. 1). C.
Hughes presided und made a few pre
fatory remarks. Hev. Frank S. Dob
bins, of Philadelphia, delivered an elo
quent address to young people and gave
an excellent illustration of the imper
fection of human nature, by explaining
thut the organ they had just heard
was Imperfect, the naker had sharp
ened some note and flattened others, in
order to make a general compromise.
Hie minister may be a little "sharp"
and the deacons a little "flat," but all
should combine together to make a har
monious whole. Speaking of the socie
ties that were represented before him,
lV made, several .suggestions .as to
their work, and replied to objections
which had been raised to the work of
Hev. Frank L. Wllkins, general secre
tary of the Y'oung Peopl.-'s union or the
I'nited States and Canada, said; "I
bring you tlie greetings or the young
Baptists of Ohio, AVest Virginia and
nlso of the Empire state, and from tlie
latter I bring a message from a glori
ous consecration meeting held at
Rochester. N. , last night, nnd when
I say that the meeting extended beyond

meeting which absorbed their attention,
baptists of the Century,
"There are In America over 3,1100,001)
Baptists and this shows the magnitude
not only of our churches, but of the
work that can be accomplished by these
societies. Our work is continental and
educational, and from tlie banners you
will observe that it is divided Into two
departments, the junior section, in
cluding those up to IK years of age, and
the senior section, from that age to as
long ns they can do anything. Wo
; have three points to observe, the devo
i tional life, the 'go' life, 'go and work,"
and the building life. When we start
to convert some one we must have a
knowledge of doctrine. The bnnnoM
show that the Bible must be read every
day. I don't know whether you have
many Catholics in Scranton. but I can
show you tilings which should shame a
Protestant. A Catholic with his book

the Baptist paper.
Air. Wllkins No; I mean the secular
paper, the best daily.
