CARE AXD FATIGUE UNKNOWN
City Men 'With Trained DoJics Superior
Physically to Country Urcd Men, Says
Professor Weston Merchants and
Professional Men in Gymnasium.
It used to be said that If a man was
raised in the country he had' all the
chances In his favor in any competition
with the city bred man for commercial
or professional honors. However true
this may have been in past days it does
not seem to be true today. The science

of living 'has made such progress In
the city, food supplies are so ubundant
and so excellent, and facilities for an
"all round" development are so nu
merous that the city youth lias every
thing in his favor.
The strongest argument for the coun
try training was -'the physical exer
cise n boy was supposed to get on a
farm. Physical Director Weston, of the
Young Men's Christian association,
t-ays: "If ten men from the country
who were thirty years of age were

placed alongside of ten city men of tVt
same age, who had made good use of
the privileges offered In city life, the
supeiiority would be all In favor of the
city men. This would be particularly
tru? if the ten city young men should
be ehofen from the gymnasium of the
Young Men's Christian association.
"It is A mistaken notion," said Pro
fessor Weston, "that the man engaged

The large class of business men who

5 p. m. In the Scranton association, at
test their belief In nnd their desire for
such training. The following letters
from among this class explain them
selves; Somo Letters Received.
To me some form of physical exercise
Is nesesftu'ry, anl that which will give
the-most good for ithe least time con
sumed is desirable. For ths reason an
hour's work in the business men's class
for three evenJngs each week pays me.
The class drill Is vigorous, a nd t he gym
nasium contains much apparatus for
individual work. I find that if one is
fairly fierslstent An his'exerclses wltlh
ithe -various muscular exertions, -rthe
muscles beovme so toned as to ax-bul
agamst nn unnatural position of the
body. In my estimation this is very
Important, for If one's work Is exaoMng

to the 'body or its position during .the

A glnnce at the career of Cora TTrqu-
hart Potter will convince the most
casual observer tha't she is a most re
markable woman. She became a profes
sional actress -tc n years ago, and Is
today probably without a rlvul on the
American stage. Possessing, as she
does, a wonderful ability 'to acquire
knowledge and an lrresistablo will
power, she has In ten years accom
plished what many an actress has
striven for a life time In vain. Kyrle
Hyllew, the Idol of the amusement lov
ing public throughout 'thp world for
many years past, made Ills first groat
triumph In London and was for years
almost worshipped in that city. He
afterward duplicated his London suc
cess in New Y'ork. These two great
artists are to appear nt the Academy
of Music tonight, nsslsted by a care
fully selected company of metropolitan
actors. "Charlotte Corday," their latest
success, will be presented here.

Tho great magician, Kellar. will be at
the Academy of Music on Friday even

pit -us? all, nnd Sir. Kellar Invites atten
tion to the wonders he now proposes
to exhibit here for the first time ab
solutely on their own merits and In
dependently of any favor they have
won elsewhere. Ills entire perform
ance is new. Prominent on the pro
gramme will be by special request,
"Flyto" and "Karmos," in which he Is
assisted by Mrs. Kellar, continued from
former years and as Inexplicable as
ever. There has been a great deal In
the papers about Inaudl'smathematlcal
feats; and how about "Karmos'.'"
Have you thought that out yet?

The Green Ridge wheelmen will have
a benefit at the Frothingham on Friday
and Saturday evenings and Saturday
matinee, when Frohman's company,
headed by William Morris in "The Lost
Paradise," will be presented. The play
abounds with Interesting detail, thrill
ing climaxes, pathos and comedy of an
original order. The grand picture of
William Morris as Reuben Warner,
superintendent of the mills, a position
whhih he gained by hard work and at
tention to duty, refusing to abet the
unscrupulous action of his employers,
Is most impressive. The mechanism
employed is truly realistic, the details
being most perfectly rendered.

borough of Wlnton. Attorneys Hul

are for the plaintiff, and Attorneys ex-
Judge Jessup, District Attorney John
