The recent celebration by the Elm Park congregation of the llrst anni versary of the dedication of its present magnificent 'edifice, suggests some In teresting reminiscences of the early lo cal and ordained preachers of the first Methodist society in Scranton. Few men are better qualified to speak of bygone Methodism than Joseph S. Mann, un old resident of Scranton and an engineer In the Lackawanna car riage works. His recollections are strengthened by the fact that his father also was an old resident of the city and a pioneer Methodist whose fund of prior Information makes ' the later knowledge of the son all the more pertinent. To a Tribune reporter Mr. Mann suld: "It Is generally understood that Rev. A. H. Schoonmaker was the llrst Meth odist preacher In Scranton; this Is cor rect only In the sense that he was the first ordained, preacher who olllclated in the church built In 1S35 oh Adams avenue. "A Rev. Reddington was the pioneer Methodist preacher who was "on the circuit" and visited Scranton every three or four weeks. During the Inter vals Elder Mott, a Baptist, and Rev. Dr. N. (3. Parke, now of Pittston, a Presby terian, occupied the pulpit. John Mulkey then preached for awhile and after he left the city, then "Slocum Hollow," Adam L. Horn and Noah Davis, ordained local preachers, were wont to show the small congregation the ways of rectitude and wisdom. The now Bible agent, Rev. Mr. Kennedy, of Waverly, preached for a .time, but became allllcted with throat trouble and was sent an assistant by the name of Cargell. Then came a Mr. Browns comb, and after him Charles Perkins. "Now, Rev. O. 11. Schoonmaker, whom I mentioned before, hnd been liv ing In Providence, but, ufter Mr. Per kins left, removed to the flats, where he occupied the house of David Major. During his term the first parsonage was built. "My father, mother, grandmother and an aunt, who Is now living with me, came to Scranton, Oct. 3, 1S47. and on the second Sunday after their ar rival, Oct. 14, were received into the church 'by Mr. Mulkey. Each was pos sessed of a transfer letter from the church in their former home, Oxford Furnace, N. J. I recollect many of the faces seen In church those days; some of the names I will never forget, while others I remember only in fancy. "We held Sunday school in the old Odd Fellows' hall, which then stood on a knoll where the modern store of the Lackawanna Iron nnd Steel company is now located. Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian mingled in those good old church days and worshipped together In a little wooden structure at the corner of Lackawanna and Adams ave nues. The building was high above the roadway and was approached by two stairways of fourteen or fifteen steps each. A hallway ex tended completely across the front of the building with a small door at either end of the hall leading Into the body of the church. It was then the custom for the women to enter the eastern door and the men the western door. "Without Intending to criticise the church customs of the present day, I must say I like better the simple fervor and honest worship of bygone Method Ism, when men and women put aside all pomp and vanity for devout praise and prayer."

LONG GKEEX CHANGED HAXDS Over $1,100 Posted as Stakes on the Re sult of tho Different Battlcs-I'ricc burg Birds Wcro Winners in Sev eral of the Principal Events. Christmas Day was ushered in at Prlceburg by a big cocktng-main at Twiss' Grove House, which drew about 500 lovers of that peculiar sport to gether. Sums aggregating $1,100, de posited as stakes, changed hands, and equally as much money, if not more, was won on side wagers on the result of the different battles. Tho main took place In the hall at tached to the Grove House, and was a very orderly affair as such events go, but few passages of arms occurring between the admirers of the different birds. Scranton, Prlceburg, Mill Creek, Hazletou and one or two other places had birds in the pit, but those from Prlceburg proved to be thoroughbreds and carried oft the principal events. From $2,r to $.-o was placed on each bird that entered the pit, and the bat tles lasted for five hours ull told. - One of the chief events was won by a Hazleton man's bird, which was killed in a contest that afterward took place. He went home yesterday minus his pet brass back, but $100 richer. In several of the contests men who had staked large sums on their favorite, birds declined to allow them to be with drawn when they had lost all pluck, and allowed the fights to go on to a finish. Scranton sportscen won two prizes of $35 each, besides a number of bets. In the resorts frequented by the sporting fraternity much money was displayed last night by. men who said they won It at the main. One Scrantonlan. lost what he described as a "dandy bird," in addition to $120 in cash. He was laying plans for another main, at which he holies to secure his revenge. AX ODD PLIGHT Sl'BELY. Otis Reynolds Said to lie Insane but Ills Nephew Could rind No Place to Have Him Kcstruincd. Otis Reynolds, of Dalton.was brought to this city yesterday afternoon by his nuphew, Oscar Reynolds, who alleges that Otis is insane. As a proof of this he declares that his uncle Cht'lstmas eve threatened to kill his (Oscar's) molhei with a desperate looking knife he was armed with. As soon as Otis stepped on the Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western sta tion platform he began to turn cart wheels. After tiring of that pastime ho went to the Carpenter house to get ma terial for other cart wheels and his nephew, Oscar, went in search of a wur rar.t to have Uncle Otis arrested on a charge of threatening to kill. The warrant was procured and nt S o'clock last evening young Reynolds ruNhed into police 'headquarters and asked for an olflcer to arrest his uncle. Captain Edwards, who was on duty, re fused to have anything to do with the insane man or as:iign anyone to urrest him. Said He Was Dangerous "But he is' dangerous and we are afr.xld of him. I only want him locked up until tomorrow, when steps will be taken to ,hav him sent to Danville," pretexted Reynolds. "We ihave no right to Vecelve that man," replied Captain Edwards, "nnd you did wrong to bring 'him here. We have more than we oan do to attend to the Vloious and insane of this city with out extending our Jurisdiction to Dal ton. It's an old trick for people to bring insane people here and then leave them on our 'hands for a week." That was a knockout blow for Reyn olds and he wanted to know if he could take his uncle to 'the county Jail for the night. "Well, I guess not' answered tho captain. "You don't suppose they ur? taking insane men up there." There was nothing for Reynolds to do but to tuke his uncle home again and run the risk of some one bolnff injured, and with a rueful countenance he left police headquarters to accept the only alternative left him. Thought Ho Would Be Killed. Oscar Reynolds was strlckerf wlfh In sanity about five years ago, it is al leged, in consequence of trouble with hlH wife, who deserted hlm. He was confined in Danville asylum for a time, but recovered and was released. , About a week ago, his nephew says, ha began to show signs of returning in sanity and Christmas eve became very violent. He was possessed by the idea that his relations were trying to murder lilm. , . . MARCKELL THE VICTOR. Ho Defeated Thomas io'dd in tho Quoit Match.

SUFFERING WOMAN TESTIFIES Mrs. Henrietta Button, of Janvier, N. 3., writes: "For a long time I suffered from a disordered stomach. My appe tite was gone and what little I ate dis tressed me terribly. My health failed rapidly. I became very weak and feared I should never be well. After reading your "Guide to Health," I was encour aged to try Munyon's Dyspepsia Cure.

FORGOT WHERE THEY WERE Olyphant Young Men Start a Fight and Come to Grief. About 11.30 o'clock last night a young man hailing from Olyphant, accompa nied by a dozen gay young spirits, en tered the Delaware and Hudson depot and attempted to take possession of the whole establishment.

Aa Every-day Occurrence. Oar Friends Perishing Before Our Eyes. ' A terrible experience for any one to eo through, that -of seeing some beloved friend actually wastiug away before our eyes, unable to derive sufficient nourish ment from their food to sustain life. Medicine naturally becomes of little avail, and the various organs of the body, debilitated from a lack of nourishment, take on themselves the disease that was originally the cause of the " breakdown," and help hasten the end. Such cases, though too prevalent, are happily becoming less frequeut. Tho prominent physicians of to-day do things differently from those of twenty years ago. They lint put the patient in a con dition to stand tho "siege,'' then enrich his blood, create for him new strength, and " build him up " generally. Tho patient is then In a condition to derive bcnelit from his medicine. This Is done by the use of Boviiiine, the original raw food. It is an extract that contains the greatest amount of the life-sustaining and tissue-building proper ties of lean, raw meat, concentrated in the least possible bulk. The advantage of this is obvious. A patient already greatly weakened by dis ease, needs to husband every particle of strength. A few drops of Uovinine will impart as much nourishment to thu body as would be derived by a well person from an ordinary meul; and, in' getting this nourishment, the stomach has been forced to do the least possible amount of work. Uovinine, coiilimted throughout an ill ness, greatly hastens recovery. Taken at the beginning of a wasting disease, it diverts the cause of the trouble by toning up the various organs, and getting them In a normal condition. Uovinine is iudorsed by 20,000 doctors. Its action is always heuclicial, as a single trial will couvluee, the most sceptical. STEEL ROD, SILVER HOUNTED, LEATHER CASE AND OTHER GOOD STYLES OP UHBRELLAS AT CONRAD'S. CHRISTMAS, 1894.
