Y'esterday a general consensus of opin

dition of previous years. The selections
were more than excellent, as will be seen
from the reports, while the music was
selected from the compositions of the
great masters of the present as Well as
of past days. No one can but admit that
the choirs were so well trained that the
selections were rendered with compara
tive eaflo and devoid of all strain. Scran
ton Is to he congratulated upon the great
advancement In the musical world which
has been displayed. Chrlstmnstlde serves
as an appropriate milestone to record the
progress of successive years and the sub
stantial progress of 1891 Is one which can
without hesitation be claimed by the mu
Blcal profession. , '

CAME FROST FOREST CITY
They Kent to the St Charles Hotel
and Blew Out the Gas.
HAD A YEKY NARKQW ESCAPE
Their Plight Was Discovered Just in Time
to Save Their I.lvcs-Sturted at Once
for Their Homes in Susque
About S o'clock Saturday morning two
Forest City citizens called at the St.
Charlei hotel and requested Clerk Flan
nary to how them to a room. They
wked to b called at I o'oloolc in the
mornlnj, They wart aailytiad to room
No, H on tba top story and retired.
The porter, Thornae Btanton, on hU
rounds yesterday morning detected a
strong odor of gas and notified Mr.
Keogh, the proprietor. Together they
wont from room to room but could not
locate the point from where the deadly
fluid wua escaping until they reached
almost the last room on the top flour.
When Mr. Keogh knocked on the door
there was no response and he crept on
a chair and looked In over the transom.
He beheld two men stretched at full
length on the Moor, apparently dend.
Mr. Keogh burst In the door and wns
horrified to lind the two sleepers rigid
He rushed to the room of Coroner J.
A. Kelley und acquainted him of the
state of nffulrs. 1 Dr. Kelley after a
half hour's energetic treutment su
cecdeil in resuscitating one of them.
The other showed signs of life a few
minutes afterward, but It was two hours
before th.-y recovered consciousness.,
and only fur the constant uttendnnce of
Dr. Kelley and the remedies he pre
scribed, the population of Susquehanna
county would have been' two less.
The men registered as Joe Campbell
and M. Hengle, Forest City. Mr. Keogli
Inquired which of them blew out the
gas. "Why, I did, said Campbell, "and
I hed to climb on a chair to reach the
gol dern light."
Coroner Kelley stated that if the men
were In the room for thirty minutes
longer their friends would be soon ap
plying for letters of udmlnlstration on
their estates. What siived their lives
was a broken window pane which al
lowed some of the gas to escape. Thcv
took the first Peckvllle car out of tnw-n
and said they would walk from Cur-
bondnlu to Forest City.
150NTA GLASS PLANT.
First Section of the Main Casting Hull Ar
rived ut the Site ut Moosic on Sutur
duy. The new Iron building of the Honta
Plate Glass company arrived at the
company's works, at Moosic, Saturday,
The dimensions are 140x112 feet. The
building is the first of several sections
which will comprise the main casting
hall of the plant.
This structure, the frame of which Is

and roof, was built by the Berlin Iron
Bridge company of EaHt Berlin, Conn.,

The annealing ovens at the Moosic

tain over 350,000 bricks, and are con

well under way, und will be complete

THE NIGHT HEEORE CHRISTMAS.
(Published In response to many letters.)
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; '
The stockings were hung by the chimney with enre,
In the hope thut St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced through their heads;
And mnmmu In her 'kerchief, find 1 in my cap.
Had settled our brains for a long winter's nap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
1 sprang from my bed to see what was the matter;
Away to the window I flew like a flash;
Tore open the shutters, und threw up the sash.
The moon, on the breast of the new-fallen snow, 1
Cave lustre of mid-day to objects below;
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer,
Willi a little old driver, so lively und quick,
I knew In a moment It must be St. Nick.
More rupld than eagles his coursers they came.
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name
"Now, Dasher'., now Dancer! now Pruncor! now Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid, on Donder and Bllxen! 1
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now, dash away, dash away, dash awuy all!"
As the leaves thai before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with nn obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the slelsh full of toys and St. Nicholas, too.
And then, In a twinkling, 1 heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As 1 drew In my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound;
He was dressed all In fur from his head to his foot.
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes und sunt'
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like u peddler just opening his park.
His eyes how they twinkled; his dimples how merry;
Ills cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;
Ills droll Utile mouth wus drawn up like a bow,
And the heard on his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight In his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He hud a broad face, nnd a little round belly
That shook, when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.
He was chubhy and plump a right Jolly old elf,
And I laughed when 1 saw him in spite of myself.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head .
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoko not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled ull the stockings then turned with u Jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all Hew, like the down off a thistle,
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight:
"Huppy Christmas to all, und te drove out of sight:
