Meeting of Men Whose Money Is Tied
Up in Defunct Oly pliant Bunk. '
HAVE ENGAGED AX ATTORNEY
Dividend of Fifty Per Cent, Was Promised
to Them to Ho Paid on April 4.
It linn Not Keen Paid and
They Are Nestles.
Depositors of the Insolvent Olyphnnt
bank are becoming uneasy over the
failure of the promise made to them
that a dividend of from 50 to 00 per cent,
of their deposits would be paid on April
4. The bank went to the wall on Jan.
"S, and Its collapse? caused unexampled
consternation among the people of Oly
phnnt and vicinity. It was supposed to
be doing a business nt a figure aver
aging. $50,on0, but when It failed only
$3,000 In cash was found In the safe.
Immediately after the institution
went Into the hands of the courts nnd
Attorney John P. Kelly wus nppolnted
nsslgnee, the reports went out that the
depositors need not worry, that dollar
for dollar would be paid to them; but,
of course. It would require a little time,
and they would be expected to exercise
due patience. R was good and cheerful
news to them when the announcement
came to them from Assignee Kelly that
on April 4 or thereabouts he would be
able to restore half of their money.
April 4 has gone by a month, and no
money has been forthcoming. That Is the
cause of the unrest among them nnd
the reason for two meetings that have
within a week been held. The first time
they assembled since the failure wus on
last Wednesday evening at Mahon's
hall, Olyphnnt. A. M. Carpenter, who
Is treasurer of the Rlakely school dis
trict, and had $1,000 of school funds on
deposit when the bank failed, was
chosen chalrmnn. Dr. W. 10. Lloyd, of
Olyphnnt, was appointed secretary. At
that meeting John T. Moeney and David
C. Phillips, with the chairman, were
selected as a committee to engage coun
sel to take their interests In hand.
Recommended Attorney W. W. Wntson.
That committee came to Seranton thin
week and performed the task that had
been assigned to it, nnd was ready to
report nt last night's meeting. The ser
vices of Attorney W. W. Watson, of tho
law firm of Watsrtn & Diehl, were en
gaged conditionally by the committee,
nnd the depositors ratified that selec
tion and a subscription was taken up
among them to liquidate the expenses
that have accrued up to date and to pay
the retaining fee.
Actually there are not more than 150
depositors, but there are so many school
children who had accounts from dimes
up to a few dollars, that Including them
the number of depositors would aggre
gate 500. But an approximate amount
that hud been on deposit Is fixed at $50,
000, all of which is now tied up.
The adult depositors, comprising the
laboring men, artisans, business men,
nnd professional men of Olyphant nnd
surrounding towns, are 'the sufferers,
but strange, not more than thlrty-llve
of 'them have put In an appearance nt
the meetings that have been held. All
the money that was realized last night
was $13.75, but thosi who absent
themselves are credited with promis
ing to pay a pro rata share of the ex
pense that may be Incurred, but yet
they do not seem anxious to be present
at the meetings.
Meetings Conducted Quietly.
Not the slightest acrimonious allu
sion of 'the officers of tho bank or
Cashier Stone has been heard ot either
of tho meetings. As one of the men
said. What they are after Is money and
not blood. This committee went to see
Cashier Stone at his residence In Rlake
ly to see If he had any recommenda
tions to make which might be turned to
a profitable account In converting the
paper of .the bank Into money.
The liabilities ot the bank when It
became defunct were rated nt $57,000,
and the assets at $73,000. Only $3,000
in cash was on hand,, hut the notes and
drafts were supposed to be easily
turned Into money as soon as they be
Assignee Kelley, on the anticipation
of realizing on these notes, sent out
word that he would be able to pay a
dividend on April 4. The committee
visited him nnd ho gave his renson for
not being able to come up to the ful
fillment of that promise In the fart
that the men who held these notes
begged for more time and they have
not laid up yet. Mr. Kelley answered
the committee that he had bright hopes
of being able to pay 'the depositors
dollar for dollar and have money to
spare, but he would not say how soon
he expected to do this. Neither would
he state how soon he expected to pay
the dividend that had been promised
on April 4.
A ttorney Watson was not engaged to
prosecute anyone; his duties will have
ended when all 'the assignee's labors are
LAST OF THE SERIES,
Mr. Sturgcs Spoko About Egypt and
The parlors of the Green Ridge Pres
byterian church were crowded last
night, when E. B. Sturges delivered
the Inst of his series of talks on his
"Trip Around the World." His sub
ject last night was F.gyi't and Pales
He opened with a number of scenes In
Kgypt, in which he gave an excellent
view of the head of Bamses III, the
oppressor of the Israelites; also of the
ruins of the "City of the Sun," In
which he showed a section of the park
which contained a number of very old
trees, some of which, It Is claimed, Jo
seph walked under. Ot tho pyramids
a number of fine views were given.
After viewing the pyramids the pnrty
took a trip up the Nile nnd a number
of picturesque views of the shores were
shown. Including the ruins of the fam
ous cities and temples. One of. the
chief reasons why these cities are all
ruined Is tholt the bricks used In their
construction were mnde of nothing but
mud. The palaces which were built of
marble are still In existence.
THE GREAT CAVALCADE.
Will Ho Seen on Our Streets on Saturday

novel sights that has ever been wit

never before has a cavalcnde embraced
delegates from so many different rnces,
npnnio and nations. Often we have
been visited by a very varlgated assem

exhibitions, but, on no occasion hns

sentiment attached to this, the first

MISS CLARK'S ABLE PAPER
It Was Read at Mectlnn. of Kinder
OBJECTS THAT AKE IN VIEW
A Lucid Explanation of tlio Work for tho
Human I'umlly That Is Being Done
at the Training School
for the Children.
Below Is the complete text of the ex
cellent paper read by Miss Katherlne
H. Clark ut Monday evening's annual
meeting, In Albright Memorial hall, of
the Seranton Free Kindergarten asso
ciation, upon "The Kindergarten Move
ment:" "In the beginning Is tho sublime key
note of success," Hero is the theory of
the kindergarten. We klndergurtnerH say
"Give us the children In the beginning,
whllo they are yet mere babies, and
through tho natural nnd happy medium
of play wo will give them Impressions of
the true and beautiful nnd good, and
will awaken ideals which will become their
standard or life, and will lay the solid
foundation of aHoclul, niornl and Indus
trial life." These first years, say from
threo tikslx, are the most Impressionable
III tho life of an Individual. The klniler
'garten recognizes this fact, nnd urgently
appeals to parents and educators to Im
prove to tho utmost 'tho opportunity
then afforded as to preventive and up
building work. Miss Angellnn Brooks,
professor of klnilergiirten methods, In the
Teachers' college, New York, Buys In thltt
"As no other educational Institution has
ever done, the kindergarten provides for
the most Impressionable period of tho
child's existence. Tim schools do not or
dinarily necept the clilhl before live years
of age and frequently not before Hlx, but
all acquainted with children know that
his practical education Is well ndvnnced
before Hint age, and that he litis nlrendy
received the bent which determines not
only what his school life will be, but fre
ipienlly ulso what his whole future char
acter will be."
AIlss Brooks goes on to speek of tho
great value of the kindergarten na a prep
aration for tho ptitnury school in the fol
"A child live years of nge may have
been fo well started In life that when ho
enters the school, ho may havu a receptive
mind, a docile, reverent and trustful
spirit, habits of truthfulness and obed
ience, refined tastes, gentle manners, a
cheerful disposition, nnd a will so trained
to regard the rights of others that he can
easily adnpt himself to tlm social condi
tion of the miniature community Into
which he has been Introduced."
To Grow Symmetrically.
The kindergarten alms to teach the child
to grow symmetrically. Be has a three
fold nntuie, physical, mental nnd moral,
and the true Idea is to cultivate this three
fold nature harmoniously, and develop nil
the possibilities of each Individual child.
The games and gymnastics educate the lit
tle body from the ends of his lingers to
the tips of his toes. He learns lessons of
politeness and to regard the rights of oth
ers. Ills powers of Imagination, memory
ami percept'on arc gnatly strengthen
Bnil quickened, and the benellts of the
habits of courtesy, punctuality and self
reliance thus unconsciously formed by
means of play In early childhood, will bo
lasting and Incalculable.
Music Is a powerful fnctor In Its Influ
ence upon the imagination, mind and
emotions of tho child, therefore the sys
tem of the kindergarten circles around Its
songs nnd games. We tench the chil
dren simple songs about birds and flow
ers and such things ns they can readily
understand, nnd the first principles of
music. Hut the kindergarten seeks to do
more than this. 11 seeks to teach tho
child to feel,"henr nnd see the deep lying
harmonies of nnture and through na
ture's harmonious work to lead up to
nature's God. Tho book of nature, the
only book that Infancy enn read, Is filled
with beautiful pictures for eyes trained to
see. The glowing sunrise, tho brilliant
sunset skies, the autumn woods .illume
with gorgeous colors, the peaceful rural
neeiie, ocean views nnd rugged mountain
scenery, are a few of the pictures mother
nature spreads out for the delight of her
Her stories are equally wonderful and
beautiful, but how few hear the stories
the sunbeams tell tho flowers, the rain
drops ' whisper to the grasses nnd Juck
Frost tiaces on the window pane. Every
thing In the world has a story to tell
nnd we teach the children to listen with
their inner ears, for the stories the
brooks, the flowers and the birds can tell
them. The kindergarten trains the little
ears to hear music everywhere In nature.
There In music In the murmur of the little
rill. In the splash of the rain, the crnsh of
raplils and the boom of breakers. There
Is music In the rustling of the wind
through the trees, and all sounds of out
Nature Made the Guide.
Thus It Is thnt we make nnture our
guide nnd no normnl training can be bet
ter for the teacher than a study of na
ture's plan for the development of man.
I once henrd a celebrated clergymnn suy
that the world was God's great kinder
garten. God himself has shown us tho
vnlue of object teaching. Longfellow pre
sents this thought in his beautiful little
sonnet to nnture:
As a fond mother, when the day Is o'er,
Lends by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led.
And leave his broken playthings on tho
Still gnzlng nt them through the open
Nor wholly reassured nnd comforted
lly promises of others In their stead.
Which, though more splendid may not
plense him more;
So nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, nnd by the
Iads us to rest so gently that we go
Scarce knowing If we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
Bow far the unknown trnnacends the
whut we know.
The question may be asked: "What Is
tho use of this?" In reply I would say
that It benellts the child permanently In
many ways, not the least of which Is that
it prepares him to appreciate what is tine
nnd elevating In nrt and In literature, und
to see with tho poet's eyes and to hear
with the poet's ears. After a child has
been In the kindergarten a short tlmo
his powers of observation havo become to
quickened thnt ho can match lephyrs, cr
Belect harmonious contrasting colors ac
curately, and leaves, grasses, flowers;
everything thnt has color Is noticed and
remarked uipon. Kvorythlng In nature
hns a new beauty and meaning to him.
"The heavens declare tho glory of God,
and tho Armament showeth Ills handi
work;" so through studying nature tho
child learns of God, who Is the author
and giver of all.

The games, llko tho stories, are not se
lected ut random simply because they are
pretty, but becuuse they symbolize tho
dlffurent relations of the f lilld. For in
stance, tho child's first relationship begins
in the family. If It were not for tho love
and protection afforded by the family In
early life he would perish. The family Is
dell ned as a whole, composed of mutuully
dependent mcmbbrs, so by tho Intimate
connection of the lingers upon the hand
and the differences In their size, they may
bo used as un object lesson to Impress the
Importance and sncrudness of tho family
relation. Ho there are many little linger
games which serve a two-fold purpose,
that of strengthening tlm linger and Il
lustrating the different phases of family
Another class of games Is called trade
games. In actual life the child steps from
the family circle Into civil society und
he soon finds that besides, being depend
ent upon the momberB of bis Immediate
family ho Is also very dependent upon his
neighbors and society In genernl for tho
comforts he enjoys. Tho trnde Bongs In
clude the family relations, they Introduce
the chlbl to the great community of work
ers, bring him Into relation to tho great
brotherhood of man, teach him that all
honest work Is honorable and help him to
recognize the value of tho hand us an
ugi nt of the mind.
Now tho family comfort and hnpplness
deK inl In a great measure upon a beauti
ful, well-ordered house, und tho comforts
It contains. Ho In a significant series of
gnmes the house Is traceil back through
all tho processes of manufacture to the
tree growing 111 tho green woods. The
chllil hns bread and mill: for his suppiir.
Few children havo any thought or appre
ciation of tho variety of labor contributed
by many persons before It Is possible for
him to havo his supper. Tho kindergarten
child, however, traces tho bread throiuch
the linker to the miller, through the miller
to the farmer, and the field of wheat to
sunshine, tain and dew, nnd all condi
tions fuVoruble to Its growth Ruppllod by
the Heavenly Father. For tho milk he
must thank tho boy who milked the cow,
Peter who mowed the grass, Mooly who
pavethemllk.andOodtheglverof all. Tile
spoon with which he cats is traced through
the sndth to the charcoal burner, thence
to tho miner and tho mine. The bowl,
even, which holds his milk, he under
stands In all the processes of Its manu
facture. All thlB that the child may havo
The Genesis of Things,
This cannot help but cultivate a love
for humanity and arouse within the child
feelings of grulltudo and a desire to do
something In return. It Is claimed that
there In no nrt or science or Industry
which In Its first principles Is not repre
sented In the songs, guinea or occupations
of the kindergarten.
We teach by means of whut arc termed
gifts. These gifts are the playthings of
tlio child. Through using them he be
comes Interested In detecting resem
blances to them In objects Burroundlng
him and greatly to his delight he sees
spheres, cubes und cylinders everywhere,
und ull unconsciously he grusps the Idea
of fundamental forms and carries it
through life. Following tho gift comes
the occupation. The sewing, weaving,
drawing, modelling, etc., give strength
and exactness to the little ringers, grace
and freedom to tho urm and hand.
Tho games, occupations and gifts serve
to develop th'i senses, the limbs and ull
the organs of the body In tho pleasuntest
But wherein, do you nsk, Is tho greal
and lusting good to humanity? Society is
an organism, each Individual a unit. Tho
Individual of low desires and uncultured
mind draws from the life-blood of this or
ganism us much us the Individual of
high asiilrattluns nnd noble ambitions.
If the heart be diseased then every atom
of the social organism must suffer und
we, as educators, as physlcluns to the
mind, must reach the scat of trouble.
The children whom we have In our free
kindergartens are victims of Inherited
moral disease nnd until this taint Is re
moved we cannot hope to purify the so
cial system. So we begin with the chil
dren. To form Is nobler than to reform, ond
every child In whom we plant the seed of
higher thought nnd nobler living will In
his turn mid to the strength and unity of
the structure which we raise; and as
generation after generation passes away,
there will be left those who hnve ceased to
see through a glass darkly, but shall gee
God, through nature, face to face.
AT DAVIS THEATER.
Fine Attractions That Arc to He Seen This
"True Irish Hearts," which delighted
large audiences at Davis' theater yes
terday, will be repeated today. It Is pro
duced by an exceptionally fine com
pany and is altogether one of the best
attractions of the season.
During the last three days of the week
"Dixie's Land" will bo produced by an
aggregation comprising sixteen colored
men from Bayou La Fouche, La. The
Hazleton Sentinel, speaking of this
troupe, says: " 'Dixie's Land' showed
to a crowded and well-pleased audience
last night In llosnck hall. The per
formance faithfully represented genuine
Southern life among colored people.
The specialties, singing and dancing,
took the house by storm."
Having mado' special arrangements, I
will obtain letters patent, designs, trade
marks und copyrights without unneces
sary delay. Costs and charges furnished

Few of the reasons why we
are able to sell goods so much
below the usual prices as we
are doing :
1st. We sell for cash.
2d. Wc sell all our Roods in the
store, not by the expensive way
of taking orders from house to
3(1. Handling so many goods we can
do it at a much smaller percent'
aye than where only ball the
quantity is sold.
41h. Wc buy from the manufacturer
or importer, not from the jobber,
thereby saving one profit.
5tll.Wc have no rent to pay for
house, barn or store, conse
quently can afford to work cheap.
Glh. Doing quite a large wholesale
as well as retail business wc
can do it at lower rates than a
house doing either branch ex
clusively. Ttll. And principally because wc are
naturally inclined to make very
low rates, depending on the judg
ment of the purchasing public
to appreciate good goods and low
prices to move the goods quickly.
