AN INTERESTING SERIES.
The Scranton V.JM. C. A. and Its Good
Work Highly Commended.
The Elmhurst Signal of this week
says: "Much Interest has been awak
ened by the series of articles appearing
lately In the Scranton Tribune regard
ing the work for young men by the
Young Men's Christian association, and
no one can read these articles without
a feeling of deep appreciation for the
work accomplished, and for the men
who are now and who have been for so
long a time engaged In It. It is an
honor roll of names.
"To this effort of The Tribune to aid
the Young Men's Christian association
we give our hearty approval. We know
the association as it exists In Scranton
and other large cities, and we know
young men who have come back to their
home association, after years of ab
sence, and have brought with them the
testimony of a good life well-spent in
the Master's work.
"Many of these reminiscences would
make encouraging reading were they
recited here, but we have not space for
them. They tell the story of the suc
cess In the business and Christian life
of many young men who left home and
native land, and coming here, unknown
and unloved, were gathered up by the
working forces of the Young Men's
Christian association and shown the
path of rectitude, In which they walked
and used as a shining way to a glorious
"This Is the grand result to be
achieved, and we trust the Scranton as
sociation will have many sons to come
home ito her and testify for her, and
thus give strength and encouragement
to the work."

Three years of success and satisfac
tory achievement have Just ended with
the South Side Young Women's Chris

versary of the organization was cele
brated at its rooms on Cedar avenue
last night. In the absence of Mrs. E.
H. Ripple, Miss Florence Tomkinson,
the secretary of the association, pre
sided. The attendance was very flatter
ing, considering the weather.
Rev. E. L. Santee, pastor of the Cedar
Avenue Methodist Episcopal church,
opened the services with prayer and
after the association choir had sung a
beautiful chorus, Rev. James McLeod,
D. D., pastor of the First Presbyterian
church, was introduced, and he gave
an hour's practical address on the pur
poses and ends of the association work.
Dr. McLeod did not strive to advance
any new suggestions; he confined him
self to emphasizing the need of striving
for better results with the means at
hand. Dr. McLeod advised the boys
present to shun the saloon and exert
their influence for a pure ballot.
Reports from the committees were
read and showed that the practical work
of the association is in capable bands.
Rev. J. J. Suter, pastor of the Prospect
Avenue German Methodist Episcopal
church, delivered an address, John J.
Schouer, Jr., made a few remarks and

soaked through the ground and spread
over the street. In a few hours the
street was the resemblance of a modern
skating rink. Teams that took that
thoroughfare as a part of their Jour
ney had a hard tussle In getting over
the ice, which had also spread over the
sidewalks, and pedestrians had their
own troubles in navigating about their
business. The Gas and Water company
sent its employes around to mend the
Tho Weather Was Too Strong.
Zero was too prominent last night to
admit of any liberty with, and as a
consequence enough of the members of
the South Side board of trade did not
brave out of doors to attend the Febru

was the only member who had the
hardihood to brace the storm and make
his appearance at Storr's hall.
