On two occnslons, notices have ap
peared in the dallies roferlng to the es
tablishment of a Welsh Episcopal
church on the West Side. In order to
learn the facts regarding this prospect,
we interviewed the rector, Kev. M. II.
Mill, whose parish is in Hyde l'ark. and
the following is ,in substance, what he
said: Mr. Mill admitted that there were
a large number of Welsh people in
Hyde l'ark raised in the church of Eng
land, and that the opportunity of giv
ing these people the services In their
own language was proper, yet he con
cluded that there were at present a
great many obstacles in the way be
fore they could venture on any such
undertaking. The establishing of a
new church must llrst receive the sanc
tion of the bishop of the diocese as well
as meet with the good judgment of the
clergy in whose purochial bounds they
seek establishment. No official action
of any kind has been taken thus far in
the matter, and the reports published
have been strongly colored by reporters.
Provided a sullicient amount of money
could be obtained to erect a church
building, and the support of a clergy
man guaranteed, ithe project would
then assume a different phase. A Welsh
Episcopal clergyman in this valley
could, no doubt, accomplish a vast
amount of good.

The second annual convention of the
Wyoming Epworth league will be held
Nov, X and 11, at the Simpson Method

isexpected that the number of delegates

public Thanksgiving evening.
Next Monday cvnlng Kev. D. W,
Skellinger and Rev. A. W. Cooper will
give their lectures on "Coal Mines" at
the First Congregational church, South
Main avenue. This is probably the
last opportunity for the people of the
West Side to be entertained by the ex
cellent stereopticon of Mr. Skellinger.
The special services held by Rev. A.
F. Chaffee In the Asbury Methodist
Episcopal church are very well at
tended, and he expects to continue
them during next wek. The Sunday
congregations are also very large.
Rev. T. J. Collins held special meet

of fellowship will be given to sixteen.
In the evening the ordinance of bap
tism will be administered.
The archdeaconry meetings held last
week in St. Paul's church, Montrose,
were well attended. Almost all the
clergy In the archdeaconry were pros
ent. The work accomplished In th&
territory covered by the meeting was
reported by Rev. Dr. Coxe as being in
excellent condition. Not a single one
of the parishes is without the services
of a regular clergyman.
As the result of three weeks evangel.
Istlc work, conducted by Kev. Daniel
Savage, forty persons were added to
the church. Next Thursday evening a
reception Will be given to these new
converts. The pastor will give them a
free tea, which will be served from 7.30
to 8.30 p. m. Other members of the

After these essays, the pastor will pre

stating the dute of his conversion and
union with the church.
A pamphlet has been Issued by the
local union of Christian Endeavor
workers in Essex county, N. J. It is
cnlled "Forward Movement," and gives
In detail on account of an evangelis
tic movement conducted under the aus
pices of the young people's societies,
which has accomplished great good. In
December of last year Kev. Ford C.
Ottman, pastor of the Memorial Pres
byterian church, of Newark, N. J., de
livered an Inspiring address before the
union. Mr. Ottman had recently re
turned from the west, where he had
conducted a series of revival services,
and his address was a vivid descrlp
tion of that work. The address stirred
up the Endeavorers, and In a speedy
consultation it was resolved to call a
special meeting and see If the- plans
suggested by the speaker of the even
ing could not be put Into operation.
The delegates met In the beginning of
Inst January, and by the 6th of Feb
ruary all preparatory work was com
pleted and the campaign opened.
The work was under the general
management of , Rev, F. C. Ottman,
while five committees chosen from va
rious societies had charge of the de
tails of the work. These committees
were finance, presB, canvassing, devo
tional, usher and music A choir of
200 voices was organized, a solo singer
and a cornet player were engaged.
Free use was made of printer's ink, the
meetings were well advertised and
cards were freely scattered. Six of the
series of meetings were held from the
beginning of February to the middle
of April. Over 100 meetings in all were
held In fourteeen different churches,
at an expenditure of $1,735.54. All this
money was collected by the committee
on finance, and the largest part of it
donated by the various societies.
The meetings resulted In nearly 900
people signing cards and . signifying
their desire of leading a new life. The
pamphlet Is issued by the union and
sent to Christian Endeavorers through
out the stutes and Canada, that they
may learn what can be done by united
Three Years' Service.
Rev. D. W. Skellinger, of the Wash
burn Street Presbyterian church, will
close his ministry tomorrow, and next
week will remove to Washington, J).
C, and take charge of a church be
longing to the same denomination In
that city. Ho has been on the West
Side for three years, during which time
he has done very good work and Is
much thought of by the people of his
charge, who regret his departure.
During Mr. Skellinger s ministry In
the above church 100 persons have
united with the church, and the benevo
lences of the people have reached a
highernmrk than ever before in the his
tory of the organization. During 1S92
the high-water mark was reached, and
last year, notwithstanding the hard
times, over $1,300 were contributed to
various organizations In the denomina
tion. The finances of the church were
never in better condition. All current
expenses were paid, and at the close of
each year the treasurer had a few hun
dred dollars to spare, after meeting all
obligations. The work of erecting a
new church was undertaken also dur
ing his ministry. The cash on hand, to
gether with subscriptions, amount to
$500 more than the contractor's bid to
put up the church now In progress of
erection. And the probability is that
a magnificent pipe organ will be
erected, subscriptions for which have
been started by Mr. Skellinger.
The reverend gentleman will leave a
large circle of firm friends in the city.
He goes to a church full of evangelistic
spirit. It is located near the Smithso
nian Institute, and the parsonage fronts
the People's park. It is a good field to
labor in, and one of great promise.
Lackawanna llible Society.
The annual subscriptions to this so
ciety are now due in Scranton and vi
cinity. Hev. S. S. Kennedy will call on
the subscribers and solicit a renewal
of the contributions. A very large
number of liiblcs in many languages
have been distributed during the ;nst
two years, a report of which will be
made at the next anniversary, which
will occur on Sunday evening, Dec. 9,
in the First Presbyterian church. Rev.
Dr. McLeod will deliver the address.
The Second Presbyterian church will
unite in the service.
The Christian Endeavor society of the
Tabernacle Congregationnl church, and
the Junior society of the First Congrega
tional church, on the West Side, began
their winter's work this week.
The ladles of fit. David's gave a very
pleasant oyster supper last week, which
wus well attended by the people of the
parish and their friends, nnil they take
this opportunity to thank those present
for encouraging their effores.
Last Monday evening the young peo
ple of the Green Kidgo Primitive .Meth
odist church passed to lay a Hag walk In
front of the church and parsonage and
pave the gutter with cobble stone. This
will mean an outlny of about $100. The
work will be commenced soon, and is to bo
finished before the winter sets In.
A mission Sunday school has been start
ed by the Providence Methodist Episco
pal church on Parker street, not far from
Leggett's Creek shaft. It Is conducted
on the second floor of a private house,
which has been rented for the oeeasloa.
From thirty to forty scholars meet here
every Sunday afternoon at 3.45 o'clock. On
Tuesday evenings prayer services are held
there, which are also well attended.
One probable result of the enthusiastic
rally of the llnptlst young people of the
Abingtonliaptlst association, held yester
day In the Penn Avenue ISaptlst church,
will be the formation of a union of the va
rious Young People's societies for aggres
sive Chrlstiun work. This has long been
felt ns necessary among the leaders of
this denomination in the above associa
tion, and when the scattered forces are
welded Into one, better and more effective
work can bo accomplished. The marvel
ous development of Christian organiza
tion among young people has impressed
upon .each denomination the duty It
owes the rising generation, and never be
fore in the history of the Christian church
wns there better work done In this direc
tion. Theso yVung people, bound together
In different camps hy broad Christian prin
ciples, will co-operate in "forward move
ments" which will have a beneficent influ
ence in our county.

are evidences of this habit of breathing,
through the mouth Instead of the nose,

A $15,000 organ is to be given to Tltts
burg and will be set up in the new
Music Hall at Schenby Park, Pittsburg.
It is intended that free recitals will be
given by an expert organist to be en
gaged by the city. Fanand & Votey of
Detriot will build the organ. Should
the plan of free recitals be carried out,
it will be the first case under city
auspices in this country. In fact, ns tho
Buffalo News points out, there very few
cities in tills country that have organs
suitable for concerts in public places
(except churches). Chicago and Cin
cinnati 'areJ notable .'exceptions, and
there are two or three cities thnt have
organs In connection with educational
institutions. If the plan is curried out
successfully it will mark an era in one
department of music in this country.
In England free organ recitals have
been given. In Liverpool particularly
the organ recitals of William T. Best
are world-famous. In Paris the organ
in the Trocadero has been used for or
gan recitals by Guilmant ever since the
completion of hall and organ. In this
country many organists have attempt
ed organ recitals in their respective
churches when agreeable to the church
congregation, and in some cases these
recitals have proven most effective and
successful. At the Centennial Exhibi
tion, Philadelphia, a speciality was
made In the exhibition of organs and
consequently organ playing. At the fair
last year' In Chicago a still greater
effort in this line was made, and many
musicians believed that a muslclal
turning point was reached when Alex
ander Guilmant was brought to Chica
go to play at this exhibition and follow
ed this performance with others In the
larger cities. Certain It is Pittsburg
will add largely to her reputation
muslclally if an expert organist is en
gaged with power to make a success,
regardless of cost. The attempt will be
watched with Interest by organists, and
probably other cities will follow this ex
ample later; Scranton last of all.
The now chorus choir at the First
Presbyterian church appeared for the
first time on Sunday evening last nnd
rendered a musical programme with a
spirit that was highly appreciated by
the congregation. The new chorus choir
was assisted by Miss Reynolds, of New
York, the soloist of the church, together
with nn instrumental trio, the harp,
played by Miss Gertrude French; llrst
violin by Miss Nellie B. Chandler, nnd
second violin by Miss Zlta McDonough.
The new choir of the church is com
posed of the following: Miss Lydla

Rubinstein has decided "to write no
more operas for an' ungrateful world."
He is evidently disgusted with recep
tions given "Kinder Der liable" and
the "The Demon," both of which were
failures. Mme. Albanl's appearance In
the lntter work was not enough to save
It, and "Kinder Der Halde" was' simply
hissed. Rubinstein has been more suc
ccsful In his less ambitious works and
far more popular, but his best work,
many believe, has always been in his
Interpretations of the compositions of
others. At present he has several minor
subjects on hand, one of which is tho
ballet music for an opera, but this Is all
of the opera he intends writing.
Among tho recent meritorious pro
ducts of Scrnnton composers may be
mentioned the "John R. Jones Cam
paign song," by Frof. T, J. Davies, Mus.
Bac. The song, which Is written
for a male quartette, contains an
attractive theme which is worked
out with the composer's character
istic style and excellence. The song,
which will be rendered by cam
paign glee clubs during the meet
ings previous to election, is one of the
striking tributes to the popularity of
the district attorney candidate nnd nn
excellent musiclnl composition as well.

which has been a dead letter for moro

first gives notice from his threshold.

The Philadelphia board of health has
seconded the report of the Sanitary
committe which strongly recommended
the establishment by the city of a De
partment of Bacteriology, with a direc
tor and assistants, such as is now doing
valuable work In New York. In cases
of diphtheria the bacteriological test
can be relied on to give valuable assist
ance In making diagnosis. "Ry Its
adoption," continues the report, "it will
be possible not only to distinguish true
diphtheria from pseudo-diphtheria, and
thus enable the proper measures to be
promptly employed, but In eliminating
the non-infectious forms, which do not
require Isolation and quarantining, a
very great expense to the city will
be saved and anxiety and perplex
ity incident to a misconception of
the true nature of the case will
be rllieved, all matters of the
highest importance." Further, the
committee recommends that an expert
bacteriologist be appointed at a salary
of $2,500, and an assistant at $1,200, they
to devote all their time to the work; that
theBulldlng commission be requested to
fit up rooms for their accommodation,
and that an appropriation of $5000 be
solicited from city councils for the pur
chase of apparatus and supplies, and
for other expenses incident to the work
and an additional appropriation of $3700
for the salaries of the bacteriologist
and his assistant. The next step to
ward the Introduction of blood-serum
treatment of diphtheria must, there
fore, be made by councils. Thus even
the diphtheria Issue seems destined to
figure in politics, i
A Berlin dispatch says: A committee
headed by Prince Scheonaich-Carolath
has been formed to received voluntary
contributions to a fund to furnish Prof.
Behring's anti-diphtheria scrum to poor
diphtheria patients. The municipal au
thorities of Berlin have allocated 6,000
murks to be devoted to supplying the
serum to the four principal hospitals
of the city until the end of the year,
when the manufacture of serum, it is
expected, is to be taken out of private
hands. The serum Is now being pre
pared on a large scale at the profesor's
laboratory in tills city. Veterinary Sur
geon Casper, until recently a professor
in the veterinary college at Chaiiotten
burg, superintends the complicated and
dillicult mode of inoculating with the
fluid the score of horses need for the
purpose, and afterward obtaining the in
fected and minimized blood from the
animals, which Is subsequently trans
formed in the laboratory Into the healing
serum itself. The cure is now being in
troduced Into the municipal hospitals
of this city, Hamburg, Dresden, Bres
lau, Konlgsberg and ther cities.
There Is no better preventive of ner
vious exhaustion that regular, unhur
ried muscular exercise. If women
would modernte their hurry, lessen
their worry and Increase their open-nir
exercise, a' large proportion of nervous
diseases would be abolished. For those
who cannot take a good holiday the
best substitute is nn occasional day in
bed. Many whose nerves are constant
ly strained in their daily vocations have
discovered this for themselves. There
Is a physician in this city who orders
his patients to go to bed for two or
three days whenever they can be spared
from their business, and he laughs at
thoso who spend their holidays toil
ing up mountains. It is snid that one
of the hardest working women of Eng
land, who has for years conducted a
large wholesale business, retains ex
cellent nerves at an advanced age,
owing solely to her habit of taking one
day a week In bed. If women cannot
avoid frequent ngltatlon they ought, if
possible, to give the nervous system
time to recover between shocks. Even
an hour's seclusion after a good lunch
will deprive a hurried, anxious day of
much of its Injury. The nerves can
often be overcome by stragedy. when
they refuse to be controlled by strength
If you are tired, says a Washington
Star writer, tnke a cup of tea and a

a heartier meal, and it will be much
less apt to disagree with you. Make
the tea as the Chinese do. Put a tea
Bpoonful of tea in a hot tea cup nnd
pour boiling water over it. Set the
saucer on top the cup for a moment,
then put In the sugar, nnd drink by
sipping slowly. Tea exhilarates, while
coffee soothes to inaction. Tea, Im
properly made. Is rank poison, and that
is why so many people suffer from too
much tea drinking. It should never be
boiled, and is best made in an earthen
Carmenclta Is learning to speak Eng
lish. She knows several things nbout
keeping in condition. "If you like to
have slim body, no bad, ugly, fat all
round, dunce. If yoik like very little
the sore face, dance. If you like it nil
comfort in yourself, the liver not still,
the Btomnch not up to the belt buckle,

the quick, the youth, the freshness, the

danseuse Is a living illustration of her
theory. She keeps the lines of a race

a comfortable income by seven hours'
practice a week.
Here Is a recipe for a good tooth
powder which can be prepared nt little
expense. Take equal parts of castlle
soap, orris root and precipitated chalk.
Plain cnstlie soap, used every two days,
will keep sound teeth In good condition.
Chalk Is the principal element in all
tooth powders; the precipitated Is a
trifle whiter, though no better than the
prepared chalk .Flavored with orris or
wintergreen, chalk is one of the few
perfectly harmless dentifrices on the
