School Board Adopts the Decision of

Mtny Teachers Appointed
or Transferred.
At a meeting of the board of control
iast night the report was received of
the special committee appointed to ln-
estlgate charges made against the sup
ply committee and Reynolds Bros., by
H. Withers, of the Withers Paper
The complaint was, In substance, that
Reynolds Bros, had been awarded a
contract to fumLsh school puds at a
cost of $90 above the lowest bid, that
the paper furnished wub of Inferior
quality, und that the supply committee
as aware of the fact. The following
eport which discredits the correctness
f the charges was udopled after being
read by Mr. Barker, chairman; the
other members were Mr. Jennings and
Mr. Hvana:
Itcpoit of Committee.
Your committee appointed Tat the
rtfeulor meeting of the ooard Nov. 12, to
nvestlgate the charges preferred by
W. li. Withers against Reynolds Bros.
u a communication to the board, dated
Oct. 25. concerning puds furnished the
school district, have Investigated the
same, as fat' as time would allow; steno
graphic notes of the testimony and pro
ceedings were taken by B. D. Fellows,
and a full transcript of the same has
been made, which we recommend be
luced on file.
A meeting of the committee was held
Monday evening, Nov. 19, at which all
the members were present. Mr.
Withers und Reynolds Bros, were pres-
nt ut said meeting. Every opportunity
was afforded Mr. Withers to substan
tiate his charges. He was permitted to
question Reynolds Bros, while they pre
sented their side of the case, and Rey
nolds Bios, were also given an oppor-
unlty to question Mr. Withers while
he was before the committee.
Mr. Withers presented no testimony
further than the statements made by
himself before the committee and con
tained In his communication which
would muke good his charges.
On the other hand, Reynolds Bros,
resented sworn affidavit, of the manu
facturers of the paper from which the
pads were made, the Tlcondroga Paper
nd I'u d company ot r;ssex, is. i., to
the effect that the paper wns made of
the requisite weight, viz.: forty pounds
to the ream; also statement or a. a.
Megnrgee, of the 1lrm of Megurgee

rder wus given and the goods deliv
ered, that the pacer wus positively

pp.per put Into the pads made for Rey
nolds Bros, to be furnished the Scran
ton, school district were made from
paper that naa tne iaciory main oi
forty pounds per ream thereon.
From statements anu testimony oi-
fered before this committee, we con-
riinlo that there was no ground for the
charges preferred by Mr. witners
against Reynolds Bros., and we are
quite confident that upon a careful read
ing of the evidence nerewun suomuieu
to the board the unanimous opinion will
prevail that the rinding of the commit
tee was correct.
Wo find from the statement oi air.
Withers that, as he did not furnish a
sample of the 40-pound paper, and as
the supply committee state that they
did not consider his bid, owing to the
fact that he did not furnish such sam

More Trouble About Coul.
A warm discussion was precipitated
during the calls for committee reports
by Mr. Mahon saying the Bupply com
mittee was ready to report In part upon
the bids for furnishing coal to the
schools, and Mr. Bchrlefer's equally
positive assertion that the committee
had been unable to agree, but proposed
to wait until Mr. Jacobs, the commit
tee's chairman, attended a meeting
when his vote would decide the matter.
Mr. Mahon was substantiated by Mr.
O' Boyle, while Mr. Barker vouched for
the truth of Mr. Schrlefer's statement.
After Mr. Mahon had mentioned the
successful bidders In the First, Second
and Third districts, the.committee was
directed by motion to retire and report
forthwith. When the result of their de
liberations was announced the Fourth
district award was lacking and con
flrmatlon of the report was postponed
until the next meeting. They announced
Stephen Short as the successful bidder
for the First district and the Consum
ers' Ice and Coal company for the Sec
ond and Third districts'; the bids In each
case are $1.65 for pea coal and J2.54 for
larger sizes.

hut Wo Saw, How It Is Run, and Why
Wc Ever Thought of Going Therc-If It
Cemcs from Coursen You Can Depend
It Is All O. K. '
With all Scranton's hustle-and-get-there
energy. It Is a strange fact that
there Is hardly another city In the Union
of like size and commercial Importance
but can show half a dozen first-class
and perfectly equipped grocery stores
for Scranton's one. A lady who has
recently made her home In this city and
who has seen much of the country,
was the first to call our attention to
Scranton's shortcomings in this respect,
and at first we were at a loss to explain
why this should be bo; but on second
thought the reason Is obvious. Scran
ton and Its environs is a complete net
work of company and other stores, con
nected directly or indirectly with almost
every Important industry In the valley,
and the firm that would butt against
this coercive and Illegal system of se
curing business must have something
unusually meritorious to back it.
The lady referred to above, stated
that Scranton had only one good gro
cery store, and that was E. G. Coursen's
on Lackawanna avenue. We are not
willing to go quite as far as our house
keeping friend In limiting Scranton's
fine grocery stores to one, but we are
willing to admit that Coursen takes the
palm for perfect equipment, a fine line
of goods, ' perfect cleanliness, In every
point, and prices as keen as the keen
est. A Look Through Coursen's Grocery.
Having had this store sighted out as
a model, we took the liberty of drop
ping In there on Wednesday last and
looking over the entire premises, and It
did hot take us long to find out the
points whloh had caught a woman's
sharp, experienced eye and led her to
such a sweeping assertion.
On entering the store the air Is as pure
the closest scrutiny reveals nothing but
,r,M, j, o.,.i ,.i.,..iir,,a
Hnif n fi,-,7n oioi-Ua nr. hiuJ fininir
orders and waiting on customers. A j
B-lance tella vou thee men know I
their business. They are not of the
half clean, slovenly order, common to
most groceries In this section; they are
active, polite, unobstruslve, and yet
closely attentive to every want of their
customer. Perfect system Is apparent
In every movement, and everything
runs like a well-geared machine, the
controller being Mr. Cbursen, who has
few equals as a manager of the forces
under him. Orders given there are
obeyed to the letter, and consequently
disappointment to customers Is a rare
thing Indeed.
Coursen's Stock.
If you see Coursen's name on any ar
ticle in the store you need ask no ques
tions; lt'B a guarantee not only of
quaUty, but of the very best quality
that money will buy. For oxample,
take Coursen's "Gem" Flour, or Cour
sen's Family Soap; every housewife
knows that. money will buy no better.
Again, take the epicure who loves the
delicacies of France and other foreign
countries. Coursen has them In abund
ance, his own direct Importations, and
the choicest of the choice brands bear
Coursen's name. Same way In pre
served fruits and' canned goods of all
descriptions, the very best carry the
firm's name and no business man of
ordinary sagacity will lend his name to
anything that Is not A No. 1, and therein
is the secret of Coursen's ever increas
ing popularity.
Magnificent Fixtures.
The fittings throughout the entire
store are solid oak, and no other grocery
store In this city is fitted In like man
ner. Desks, shelving, show cases, cor
nices, counters, etc., are all of the same
material and uniform In design. A
unique feature in the store Is the stock
oannisters and bins, all of which are
air-tight as a drum when closed. They
are made from solid silvered steel
plates, handsomely ornamented, and,
being air-tight, the aroma of flavor of
their contents, as in the case of teas,
coffees, spices, etc., are as perfectly
preserved as If they were kept In her
metically sealed cases.
Another Feature
worth noticing in this model store Is
the scales In use, all of which are set on
perfectly adjusted agate balances and
are the work of the celebrated Henry
Troemen's, of Philadelphia. From the
smallest candy scale to the largest In
general use the balance is so perfect
that a sheet of tissue paper will turn the
balance. By the same maker Is a
unique electric coffee mill of new design.
As they say about the kodak, "You
touch the button and the mill will do
the rest."
In Conclusion
we may state that we wanaerea
through the three flooors which go to
muke up -the store and stock rooms and
we found nothing throughout to change
the opinion of our lady friend that
Coursen's Is by all odds the finest gro
cery In the city, and probably In the
tate, for almost all other fancy grocers
In Pennsylvania depend on wlneB,, 11
quors, etc., for a large portion of their
support, while Coursen Is an exclusive
dealer In groceries, provisions and table
delicacies. Adv.

A Great Company at Davis' Theater for
Three Days.
Davis' theater has a large and excel
lent company during the first three
days of the week and by common con
sent is one of the best vaudeville and
comedy companies which has ever per
formed In the city. There are a larger
number of ladles than is usually found
In companies, all of whom are experts
in the different departments in which
they appear.
The performance opened with on
elaborate and laughable satire on the
atrical life, entitled "Green Room Gos
sip," which was very well received.
Miss Marie Armstrong sang several se
lections and wus accorded an encore.
Coogan and Bacon were splendid In
their comedy sketches. The Lannler
Sisters showed great merit as vocalists
and I.eonl and Everett, the original
Yankee and dude, caused great merri
ment. The performance concluded with
the bulesque, "In Old Kentucky-Rye,"
during which excellent music was ren
dered, and a genuine band of pickanin
nies, Introduced by Henry Williams,
who claims to be the world's champion
colored dancer. His work yesterday
proved that he was a dancer of rare
abilitybeing accorded two calls to re
peat his performance.
Interesting Showing Mude at the Academy
of Music Last Night.
An Interesting exhibition was given at
tho Academy of Music last night by the
members of the different classes of the
Scranton Turn Vereln. The exercises
were under the direction of Professo
Karl Staiber. the physical director of
the Turn Vereln,
The exhibition began with "The Turn
ers' Living Picture" In which Germania
Columbia and Father John occupied a
central position surrounded by athletes
great and small to the number or J00.
There were Interesting drills and ex
erclses In calisthenics by large classes
of little boys and girls ranging in age
from G to 10 years. There work wus
i most creditable for their years. A class
ot girls between 11 and 14 years of age
gave a very pretty wand exercise, and
twelve members of the ludies' class, at-
tired In "bloomers," gave a flag drill and
march that called forth warm applause.
The work of the men's class on the
BDi-lng board and horizontal bar and
with the dumbells was very good. Th
exhibition was a fine exposition of tin
work the Turners are doing in the way
of body building.

Company Has an Injunction
Issued to Restrain It.
So Mrs. Abbio J. Sheak, Daughter of the
Discoverer of Curtis Compound, Main-
tains-Declares Company Did Not
Live I'p to Its Contract.
Mrs. Abble J. Sheak, executrix of the
estate of the late Mrs. Juliet Curtis, of
Binghamton, yesterday through At
torneys Wheaton, Darling & Woodward,
of Wllkes-Barre, obtained an Injunction
from Judge Edwards to restrain the
Curtis Manufacturing company, of this
ity, from manufacturing or using the
trade marks of Curtis Cough Compound
nd Curtis Compound Blood, Liver and
Kidney Purifier. The injunction is re
turnable Saturday morning at 1U o'clock
About ten years ago Robert E. Cui
us, of Binghamton, first began the
manufacture of the Curtis Cough Com
pound which met with Buccess and later
e put on the market the kidney and
blood medicine. Curtis died several
years ago and the business was carried
on by his wife until her death on Dec,
1893, when tha.rlp;ht to manufacture
these medicines, It is alleged, became
vested in her daughter, Mrs. Abble J
oiieaK, wnotn sue named us her exe
In the bill of complaint filed yesterday
it is cet forth that on March 12. 1894, Mrs,
Sheak entered Into an agreement with
the Curtis Manufacturing company, t
regularly organized company with head
quarters in this city, setting forth that
,the company had the right to use the
Curtis formulae to manufacture the
medicines and also to make use of the
arlous Curtis trade marks.
It Is alleged that the Curtis company
lolated this contract which Mrs. Sheak
says nullifies that document. Never
theless It is contended that the Curtis
company continues to manufacture and
sell the cough and kidney medicines,
and this Mrs. Sheok wants the courts
to put an end to.
Original Oil Puintlngs of the Scott Collec

The first night's sale of the Scott
collection of paintings last night at the
corner of Adams avenue and Linden
street, was particularly gratifying to
buyers, but equally as discouraging to
the auction firm. Valuable works of
art were sacrificed among a select as
semblage .of w-ell known people at
prices which did not approach even the
cost of framing.
The sale will be continued this and
tomorrow evenings, when will be of
fered for sale many very choice paint
ings. If last evening's prices is any
criterion, the balance of the collection
will be sold for a song.
