Blr: In the Friday's issue of Tbs Trib
une we notice the statement that the pro
posed chorus choir for the First Presby
terian church of your city Is "a feature
In church music that ts not known out
side of New York, Philadelphia and other
large cities. A chorus will he
seated on the gallery In the rear of the
churoh, facing the minister."
The writer of the article seems to have
been misinformed on -the subject. In Jus
tice to Honesdale, we would like to men
tion the fact that the First Presbyterian
church of this place has a chorus choir of
fifty voices, whinh made lt first appear
anoe on Easter Sunday. The organ la sit
uated on the east side of the church, and
the chorus choir Is sealed In tbe gallery
at the south side, opposite the minister.
Although the organ and singers are sep
arated by no little distance, the harmony
Is pronounced good and "no difficulty is
experienced In keeping together." Since
the chorus choir is a "now feature" In
your city we invite you to come over here,
and we may be able to give you some
point So), once again, 1n respect to
Honesdale, Scranton Is willing to adopt

The plan of county graduation Is
rapidly growing in favor, as is snown
bv the size of the classes examined.
Last year there were 128 candidates In
the central examinations and 36 In the
final one. This year 224 pupils attend
ed the central examinations, and 70 the
final at Liberty hall.
Merit of tho Plan.
The number of graduates last year
was 14, this year 35. Another merit
which Superintendent Taylor thinks
the plan possesses, is its .tendency to
unify teaching in common branches
throughout the county ana nx a stanu
ard by which n!l teachers may measure
their work. It also calls attention to

WILL CONTEST THE CLAIM
Councils Decide Not to Poy the Turn
pike Company's Claim. :
POSITION THAT THEY TAKE
No Debate Upon Matter-Think It Will Do
a Good Thing to Have Dispute Defi
nitely Sottlod as a Guido In
A Joint session of councils Inst night
decided to contest the claim of I5.3SU.74
of the Providence Turnpike company
against tho city.
In 1NS8 the company agreed to remove
Its toll gate from Providence square
to a point outside the city line, the city
agreeing to keep In good repnlr that
portion of the trunplke remaining with
in the city. Nearly $:!,000 was expended
by the city during the first two years,
nut the company was not satisfied with
the work and claims that $!,3S0.74 had to
be expended to keep the thoroughfare
In good condition. Last yeur the com
pany renewed Its demand for the
amount In qestlon. Councils demurred
and directed the muyor to secure a
legal opinion on the validity of the
claim. City Solicitor Torrey having"
been Interested In the case before his
election, the matter was referred to ox
Judge Jessup, who recommended thnt
the claim be paid.
Nothing was done In tho matter, nnd
as the case is on the trial list for today
Mayor Connell called last night's spc
clay session for the purpose of taking
steps In tho matter. The Turnpike
company's willingness to wait until
April of next year for payment was set
aside and Mr. Manley's resolution
adopted directing the mayor to engage
new council and request from the court
a continuance of the case. The resolu
tion provides that the suit shall not be
contested unless the new council dis
putes the validity of the claim.
The decision of the councils was the
unanimous voice of the fourteen mem
bers present In each branch. There was
no debate upon the matter, as preced
ing the meeting the members expressed
the opinion that by court the matter
would be settled definitely, and the re
sult would guide the city In further con

All Her Life Happy Release at Last
of Mies Alice Young, Who Re
sides at 302 Alexander Street,
Rochester, N. Y.
(From the Roohester Democrat and Chron
icle.) Our representative was received very
pleasantly at tr.12 Alexander street, by Miss
Allco Young, who told how slnco childhood
she had been hulj In the bondago of pain
from her back, never remembering the
time that she- had not suffnrod pain or
aches In the region of the kidneys. Muny
were the means she usod to nnd relief, but
there seemed no remedy for her caso and
sho remained a captive; then along comes
these little enemies to backache, Donn's
Kidney Pills, und a half box releases tho
bonds, as one by ono tho aches and pains
disappear, she finds herself a slave to
pain no more, by their continued oho. She
says: "I was entirely relieved of all iny
suffering and now I am perfectly strong,
healthy and well."
"How did you take this remedy?" MIhs
Young was asked by our representative.
She replied that she followud directions
explicitly. Miss Young then told how the
malady affected her, Buying her symptoms
were: "Stooping, bending over, walking
or standing any length of time always
gave me a pain In the small of my back.
I had a puln In tho kidneys all the time
and If I caught cold It would always settle
thore; the pain 1 suffered was of a very ex
huusting nuture; at night I could only Ho
flut on my back, any other position caus
ing puln and suffering; tho nerves passing
up my back were affected and this brought
with It severe headaches, but as I suld be
fore, Donn's Kidney Pills havo removed
all pain and suffering entirely and I never
felt better and hoalthlor In my life."
