Service Conducted by Rev. B. J. Evans.
The Cymrodorlan Society Attended.
Young Till-tapper in Decker's Drug
Store-Couldn't Reach Cemetery.
The funeral of the late Mrs. Thomas
5. Lewis, of Decker's court, -took place
yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Al
though a fierce blizzard was raging at
the time a great many friends of the
well known singer were In attendance.
The services were conducted by Rev. R.
J. Evans at the home, after which the
remains were removed to the Taber
nacle Congregational church, where
Mr. Evans held further services. As It
had been Mrs. Lewis' dying request, a
large number of the members of the
old Cymrodorion Choral society at
tended, and several selections were ren
dered. The remains were then conveyed to
the Washburn Street cemetery by Un
dertakers Neville & Tague, where In
terment was made. At the gate of the
cemetery the snow was drifted up ii.
piles manv feet high, making it Impos
sible for the carriages to pass through.
This difficulty was overcome by the
pall-bearers, who carried the remains
from the gate to the grave. The bearers
wwe: Samuel Rogers, Richard Thomas,
W iam B. Jones, David Davis, John
Ej ns and Evan Evans.
Yonng Thief at Work.
While Harry Decker, the clerk at
Decker's drug store on North Main ave-
nue, was cleaning the snow from the
sidewalk yesterday morning two young
lads, Robert Dawes, of Sumner ave
nue, and William Burgeroff, of Lincoln
avenue, entered the store and young
Dawes went to the money drawer and
after making a careful survey of his
surroundings, took change amounting
to about J2. At this moment Mr.
Decker happened to glance in the store
and caught sight of the young thief. He
promptly captured him. Dawes was
taken to the police station and turned
over to Officer Gurrell. After his mother
had been sent for he was released. The
lad Is only 9 years of age.
Monahan Was Not Buried.
Considering the fact that a fierc. ollz
zard raged yesterday morning a good
ly number attended a solemn high mass
of requiem which was celebrated In
St. Patrick's church at 9 o'clock.
Rev. Father Dunne conducted the ser
vices over the remains of the late
Thomas Monahan, of Eynon street. The
floral offerings were very pretty. Un
dertaker Wymbs atempted to convey
the remains to the Hyde Park Catholic
cemetery, but when he reached the lane
on North Main avenue which leads to
the cemetery he found it impossible.
The snow drifts were from ten to twelve
feet high. As there was no possible
means of reaching the cemetery the
cortege returned. The casket contain
ing the deceased waa placed In Mr.
Wymbs morgue and will probably be
Interred today.
He Was Badly Frozen.
A man named Williams, who said he
resldej on North Mam avenue, was ar
resUi yesterday afternoon in front of
Cooper's market on North Main ave
nue while in a beastly state of Intoxica
tion. Officer Gurrell and Constable
Timothy Jones removed him to the
West Side station house. When near
the stove, lWlllams suffered great pain,
and it was found that he had been bad
ly bitten with the frost, aUhough ton
drunk to realize it. The officers rubbed
his hands and warmed him up, after
which he was comfortably placed in his
cell to await a hearing.

Interesting News Notes.
"We are aW victims of circumstances,
and few young men of 17 can toll what
occupation or station of life they will
drift Into before they reach middle
age," said P. F. Spellman, the special
otllcer at the Delaware and Hudson
station yesterday as he kept one eye on
a frozen-looking resident of Wlnton,
who had a grip oh one of the station
radiators which indicated that he
would like to carry it away with him
to impart heat to his benumbed anato
my. "Now take my case for instance,"
remarked the officer, returning to his
subject, having satisfied himself that
the radiator was securely fastened,
"police duty Is something I never was
In love with, but here I am in it all
the same.
"In my younger days I attended the
public Bchools of the Seventh ward
of this city, and afterward picked slate
at the Diamond breaker and did al
most ever other kind of work to be had
about n coal mine. In 1864 I ran away
from home and joined the construc
tion corps of the United States army,
for I had a bad attack of the "war
fever" that was then sweeping over the
country. I was with Sherman from
that time until the close of the war,
and accompanied his army on the fam
ous march to the sa. Those were stir
ring times. I waH In Atlanta. Ga.,
when Sherman gave his orders to va

A Poor Christmas Dinner.
"At Murfreesborough, Tenn., we were
hemmed in at the time General Thomas
and General Hood were having their
engagements. For three days we had
scarcely anything to eat, as our com
munication with supplies was cut off
by the rebel army. Our Christmas din
ner that year I remember well. It con
slsted of mush and molasses which wo
devoured with relish, I can assure you.
"I was at Fort Fisher in '65, soon
after the rebels surrendered to the
United States troops. We landed on
the steamship Baltic at Moorehead city,
N. C, from which we took a train to
Newburn and repaired the railroads
from Gouldsboro to Raleigh. While Bta-
tioned In this city our company and a
corps of bridge builders were Bent on the
Southern railroad to build a bridge over
a creek. Here I served as cook. I saw
Generals Johnson, Bureauguard, Early
Longstreet, and others of tho rebel
army. They came to Raleigh on an en
glne built on tho style of the "Comet."
"I remember a war hospital between
Newburn and Gouldsboro, where legs
and arms were plied up In a stack four
feet high. When I Baw the doctors
amputating a young soldier's arm my
chicken heart gave way. My comrades
made great fun of me after I had re
covered. After this I had a glimpse of

Executed I'ndcr Martial Law.
"In re-building the roads at Goulds
boro I saw a cavalry soldier shot under
martial laws for the murder of a wo-
man ne naa also robbed. You can t
realize how awful the ceremony was;
the drum corps playing the dead march,
the soldier sitting on his coffin. Twelve
soldiers were picked out, six had loaded
rifles and six had blank charges. The
captain gave the command and the sol
dier was dead.

the Miner's union paraded the avenue,
and was with Father Dunn when he ad

maiden vote for M. W. Lof.tus for mayor

Representa. Straus, of New York

phases of Interstate commerce, took the

Fannie had received injuries on one
of tho company's trains, rendering her

A charitable and generous work was
performed by the members of the Rail
road Young Men's Christian associa
tion yesterday afternoon In serving out
hot coffee to the yard men of the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western. The
kindness of the members was highly ap
preciated. The Humane society at Wllkes-Barre
has brought suit against the Delaware
and Hudson Railroad company, for
cruelty to animals. It is alleged that
the company recently placed as many
as thirty-eight head of cattle In a sin
gle car, and that while enroute from
Buffalo to Wilkes-Barre, several of the
cattle died from suffocation.
Frank E. Smith, who recently suc

One night this week Mr. Powell re

passed by the handsome new station of
that company' and wended his way to
the dingy old building at the foot of
Bridge street, that for years did ser
vice as the Scranton Btatlon of the
Delaware and Hudson company. Not
until he had vainly endeavored to
open the locked doors did it dawn
upon the ex-county treasurer that he
had gone to the wrong place. He re
traced his footsteps as rapidly as possi

Of alt the weeks of the present winter
season the past week has witnessed the
greatest dearth of social activity. To
be sure there were many strangers In
town on pleasure bent, but they came
for the KIrmess, and that attraction
succeeded in absorbing the attention of
everybody. There wns here and there
a tea or (luncheon, where a few met
quite Informally, but that was all which
transpired aside from the KIrmess.
Speaking of the KIrmess It was grand,
pretty and almost anything pleasing
which one might choose to apply to It.
It merited attention not only because
local dancers participated, but because
the carnival was entertaining and from
a purely entertainment standpoint was
well worth the price of admission.

Celery Compound---It Makes People Well.
REV. I. P.
Clergymen today need big hearts and
sound nerves to accomplish all the
good they intend.
It Isn't merely the fact of preaching
once a week that makes the life of the
minister of today so wearing on nerves
and brain. Their every-day labor is a
round of exacting duties that tax heavi
ly their Jiervous strength.
The modern minlstermust keep up his
enthusiasm, hla hopefulness and Ills
genuine love of his work. He must feel
strongly, think deeply and have confi
dence in his labor and In himself.
But all this taxes heart and brain to
their uttermost. It calls for a tre
mendous outlay of nervous energy
seven clays in the week and 3G3 every
year. Many clergymen break down ut
terly under the nervous strain.
Rev. I. P. Quimby, the well-known
Boston preacher, lias been saved from
nervous prostration.

Boston, Nov. 20, 1S94.
Never in my life havo 1 commended any
proprietary medicine, but 1 would be
derelict In duty If I failed to let the public
know what a great boon to humanity I
believe Paine's celery compound to be.
With a family of seven, 1 have not paid a
dollar for a doctor in ten years, nnd 1 owe
It to the fact that 1 always keep Paine's
celery compound on hand, and when any
of us nro "out of sorts," administer it.

Rev. I. P. Quimby,
Pastor of Broadway Church, Boston,
When the nervous strength has be.
come from any cause Impoverished,
Paine's celery compound succeeds ai
nothing else has ever done.
From a state of depression, exhaus
tion and lifelessness the nerves grow
strong, active, and perfectly nourished
by means of Paine's celery compound,
the great modern nerve and blood rem
edy that makes people well. And with
the strengthening and regulating of tha
nerves the disorders that depend on tho
faulty nutrition of these tissues disap
pear. Such are rheumatism, neuralgia,
heart weakness, headaches, low spirits,
lack of strength, and that general poor
health that is so Impossible to define.
Sound nerves, healthy blood and an
all round, vigorous constitution of the
body Is the Invariable effect of taking
Paine's celery compound. This great
modern restorative corrects derange
ment of the nervous system, and averts
prostration when protracted strain has
reduced It to an exhausted, poorly fed,
devitalized condition. Try It.
Produced by Otis Skiuncr and Company
at the Academy of Music.
"His Grace de Grammont," a play of
the romantic school from the pen of
Clyde Fiteh, author of "Beuu Brum
mell," wns presented at the Academy
of Music last night with Otis Skinner
in the 'leading role.
The theme that Mr. Fitch discusses
In "His Grace de Grammont" admits of
beautiful and striking costumes and
elaborate stage settings, which have
been taken advantage of to the fullest.
The costumcr and scenic artist have
done their work admirably.
Mr. Fitch has painted Count de Gram
mont in a much more favorable light
than does the historian. The latter
makes him a gallant, a rone, a profli
gate, whose amours were the scandal
of the courts of England and France,
but withal a person of unexceptional
manners. The playwright takes up the
thread of the count's career after his
banishment from the court of Louis
XIV., of France, for an unseemly pcan
dal at the time when he attaches him
self to the court of Charles II., of Eng
land, where ho ut once becomes a
great favorite, especially with tha la
dles. He Is fitted by Mr. Fitch w ith a nobis
nuture, tho same unexceptionable man
ners he In reality possessed, and IS
made capable of loving and winning
the love of the pure-minded Mistress
Hamilton, a young woman of great sim
plicity and loftiness of character, who
has nothing In common with the gay
butterflies ot fashion who mnde tho
court of Chanles II. notable. This lova
affair embroils both the count and tha
lady in serious trouble, which furnishes
the real material for the play.
Mr. Skinner Is a careful, polished
actor, who speaks his lines with preci
sion and intelligence. He understands
the niceties of stagecraft and is equally
effective and artistic In the passages
where he employs the natural tone o
voice as when he arises to tho dramatlo
pitch. The scene nt the end ot the
third act was very well done and Mr,
Skinner was given a hearty curtain
Maud Durbln was winsome and
charming as Mistress Hamilton, but
speaks her lines in a somewhat emo
tional manner. Tho remulnder of tha
cast do not approach the standard ot
Mr. Skinner and Miss Durbln. On ao
caunt of the disagreeable weather the.
audience waa small.
