The churches represented will num
ber 125 and each church is, entitled to
two lay delegates In addition to th
pastor, bo that a Very large muster
Is anticipated. One feature of Tues
day's session will be the dismissal of
Rev. Patrick Koln, of Plttston, and his
recommendation: to the church at Piill
delphla from which' he has accepted a
Review of a Year's Work.
During the past year the missionary
work of the- American Sunday School
tinton hasy beta followed by very grati
fying results. The embarassment of
ftnanolal t pressure has been felt, but
In the mlds&of It there have appeared
most cheering tokens ot God's gracious
favor. A y
- There have Men In ftHe field 140 men
commissioned, pf whom 120 were at
work during thevwhole year and 20 dur
ing a portion of It. As one result of
their labors 1.763 new Sunday schools
were organized, having 65,977 teachers
and scholars, 513 were reorganized, and
aid as given to existing schools 8,324
times. But in addition to this large
number of 2.276 schools set in opera
tion, most abundant showers of bless
ings have followed the evangelistic la
bors of the mlsslonerles. In many re
ports they mention only "numerous
conversions," In other cases only par
tial reports are given; and yet the very
large number of 10,092 hopeful conver
sions has been reported as having: oc
curred .from the work of these faithful
and earnest men. They also mcde
107,230 visits to families for religious
instruction and prayer, and idlstrlbuted
6,796 Bibles and 9,548 Testaments. The
organization of churches has followed
in 180 cases
In addition to this, a most valuable
work was done by the missionaries in
Nebraska, Kansas, North and South
Dakota and Arkansas in the careful
distribution of many thousand dollars'
worth of provisions and many tons of
clothing to the people who suffered ex
treme destitution from the famine pre
vailing In those sections. Moreover,
upward of one. million and a quarter
copies of the illustrated Sunday school
papers were freely given to the hospi
tals, prisons, almshouses and reforma
tories all over the land. These have
been most thankfully received, and
generally read with eager interest.
Those who are in charge of these insti
tutions testify to the exceptional value
of this literature as coming frdm an un
denominational source. Contributions
are, however, much needed for the con
tinuance of this good work to these un
fortunate and needy classes.
Cedar Avenue Presbyterian Mission.
A' committee has been appointed by
the trustees of the First Presbyterian
church to prepare plans andselect a site
for a new chapel for the purpose of the
Cedar avenue mission. The mission
was organized over twenty years ago
by the Young Men's Christian associa
tion, and was afterward taken! charge of
by the First and Second Presbyterian
churches. Subsequently the work was
carried on by members of the First
Presbyterian church. The present
quarters, opposite the Neptune Engine
house, are totally inadequate for the
purposes, as there are over four hun
dred pupils and teachers who regularly
attend on Sunday afternoon. A well
attended prayer meeting is also held
on Wednesday evening.
It Is anticipated that a regular church
will be organized ln.the early future, as
there are at present one hundred and
sixty members, with every prospect of
a flourishing and growing, cause.
On Thursday afternoon many small,
but entenprlslr," children connected
with the church arid mission held a fair
at the restdence of X H. Steel, when
the sum of $72. was netted, which the
generous little ones turned over to the
superintendent of the mission to be de
voted to the new chapul building fund.
Christian Endeavor Notes.
Christian Endeavorers should be up
and doing, during the next few weeks, and
work in a practical manner If Scranton
is tojbe accorded the '96 convention.
Discussion may be very profitable, but
there are practical methods which
should be adopted without further loss
of 'time, and it is suggested to the '96
committee, which constitutes the best
melt of the union, that they should Im
mediately set to work to ensure that
one delegate be sent from each society'
In the city, and county, if possible, to
the Erie convention. In the first place,
26,000 Worth of
Ladies' and Gents' Furnishing Goods,
the voting power for this city would
be considerably increased, but, what is
still more important, the number of ac
tive canvassers at Erie would be so
strong that it would ensure Allentown
being placed In the rear. '
It may be claimed that the expense
could not be borne by all the societies,
but this would not be necessary, as it
is well known that each society has
more than one member who could easily
afford a week's vacation at Erie, with
out being a burden upon the society's
funds. At least fifty delegates should
represent Scranton and Dunmore at the
convention. The Epworth league of the
city and Dunmore, which comprises but
eleven societies, will send thirty dele-
gatesto Chattanooga, Tenn.,and, should
this be any criterion, the minimum of
the Christian Endeavor union should be
fifty. This work should be undertaken
by the '96 committee Immediately and
Items of Personal Interest.
By the departure of Miss Dunbar the
congregation of the Second Presbyterian
church have lost a valued and faithful
servant who, during her three years ot
service, has accomplished much toward
extending the work of that Important
church. Miss Dunbar has been particu
larly successful in connection with the
Junior Endeavor society and the mothers'
meetings. She has also worked energet
ically In. advancing the interests of the
night school at the Volunteer mission on
West Lackawanna avenue, whera the
results of her work are clearly to be seen.
Apart from her educational work Miss
Dunbar, in her quiet manner, has been re
lieving the distressed and assisting the
sick in innumerable cases. There are In
stances upon record where families have
been too poverty-stricken to pay the fu
neral expenses, and where Miss Dunbar
undertook the responsibility of the ar
rangements, relieving the afflicted ones in
a serious dilemma. Regrets were univer
sally expressed at her departure, and
more particularly so, owing to Ill-health
being the cause of the resignation.
' As an examplo of her Industry It may be
mentioned that Miss Dunbar has frequent
ly made over 350 calls In the same month,
and it is a difficult matter to form an es
timate of the trouble Invoked in listening
to the many sorrowful tales of poverty and
distress, and the effort entailed to render
the miserable homes a little brighter. In
this manner Miss Dunbar has won the af
fection of many hearts, and her name will
be cherished for a lifetime by many cf
those who looked upon her as those of a
ministering angel.
Rev. John Davy, who loaves next week
en a visit to England, Is probably the best
known minister In this Bectlon of the
country, owing to his long and faithful
service In the cause to which he conse
crated his life. Mr. Davy has witnessed a
a remarkable growth of the church and at
all times the reminiscences of his early
ministry are acceptable to his bearers.
Notwithstanding he Is 84 years of age.
Mr. Davy Is determined to visit the home
of his boyhood, the first time in the long
term of forty years, and will carry over
the great tidings of the marvelous multi
plicity of Jehn Wiley's followers in
America. His two sisters In England
have, for a considerable time, been anx
iously awaiting the fulfilment of bis prom
ise to cress tike Atlantle.. Mr. Davy will
be abseftt for three months, and.upon his
return will, no doubt, be able to Impart val
abla Information as to 'the great changes
In the old country during his long absence.
Rev. A. L. Urban, rector In charge of St.
Luke's mission at Dunmore, has arranged
a very feasible and practical plan for rais
ing the necessary amount to erect' a new
chapel and rectory on the recently pur
chased plot of ground, on the corner of
Blakely and Potter streets. Shares are
sold at $24 each, to mature In four years,
and although but a few days have passed
since the plan was made known, $2,200
worth of stock has already been sub
scribed. The plana are being prepared by
Architect F. I Brown, of this city. ,

ed veteran of the Methodist pulpit, read an
excellent article on "Preacher and Teach

public, owing to his advanced age, are
rare, but his presence In the pulpit al
ways attracts large audiences.
Rev. A. C. Oaebaelln, of the Hope of
Israel mission. New York city. Is a gen
tleman not easily discouraged. Mr. Uac
baelln lives but for the conversion of the
Jewish race to the Christian faith and

Rev. David Jones, of Lincoln avenue,
will read a paper on "The Dlaoonate" at
the Congregational association at Pltts
ton. The paper Is written by Mr. Jones
from the standpoint of a Welsh Congrega
tionalism, and it is probable that some of
the Bontlments express will throw a new
light upon this important subject.
A. D. Holland, warden of St. Luke's
church, read an excellent paper on "A
Laymon'B Responsibilities" at the Scran
ton archdeaconry on Tuesday last, which
was very favorably commented upon. The
