Open Air Meetings Conducted at Nay
Aug Falls by Y. M. C. A.
Organized by a Number of Boys Items of

Different Denominations Work
, That Is Being Done.
'An Interesting phase of religious work
Is the summer open air meetings to be
held Sunday afternoons at Nay Aug
falls by Young Men's Christian asso
ciation workers. The plan Is a very
good one and is well told in the Toung
Men'a Christian Association Magazine,
which Is issued today, In the following
"Rev. Dr. Mutchmore, the eminent
Presbyterian divine, in an address re
cently given to the Pittsburg associa
tion said: 'You have a park here which
tae devil has dedicated to himself.
There are enough of you here to go out
and do missionary work from one end
of the park to the other. Start out and
preacli the gospel on Sunday, and then
come here through the week for rein
forcement. We have too long housed
our Christianity. People used to de
light to come to church and the asso
ciation rooms. They won't come now.
It is time to uncork our Christianity.
"This is precisely what the Scranton
association workers are now planning
in a series of open air services at Nay
Aug falls. A beautifully shaded, nat
ural amphitheater has been selected
and here a platform will be erected and
the Association Glee club and orches
tra, assisted by leading church choirs
and soloists, will give a half hour con
cert of sacred music, to be followed by
a brief address by prominent laymen of
the city. It is hoped to secure also for
two or three meetings of the series as
many famous speakers from abroad.
It Is expected that each meeting will be
In charge of some prominent Christian
worker In the city. By this means we
hope to reach with the truth a large
number of young men, who, following
a perfectly natural instinct, prefer the
green trees and the shady nooks of the
park to the heated walks and streets of
the city." ..
A thing which will be of Interest to
ministers and those who have charge
of training the young In Christian work,
Is the organization of a number of boys
In a worker's training class. These are
steady 'young fellows, very studious,
and will conduct the class themselves,
having a different leader each meet
ing. 'Rev. Charles H. Yatman's series
of eitudles for beginners will be fesed.
The class at present will meet In the
rooms of the Young Men's Christian as
sociation. ' Eplsoopal Church News.

Roman Catholic Sisterhood.
The Young Lutheran; edited by Rev.
E. L. Miller, contains the following
article on the "Roman Catholic Sister
hood:" "The Roman Catholic church hns
been universally credited with being
alive to the things which strengthen
Its hands among- the people. In its
wide experience It has found that one
of Its greatest sources of strength has
been In the employment of various
sisterhoods for different spheres of
church work. The following outline
Will hint at the extended Influence, of
these agencies of this church: '
"Sisters of Mercy, spend Vlfe In visit
ing the sick and the prisons. Sisters
of the Order of the Good Shepherd aim
to reclaim fallen women and conduct
reformatories for girls. The Uraullne
nuns are devoted to teaching In acad
emics and in parochial schools. The
Sistera of the Divine Compassion pro
vide homes for waifs and homeless
children. Sisters of iMiserlcor-Jlae con
duct lying-in hospitals. Those of the
Order of St. Francis teach in parochial
schools, conduct hospitals and orphan
asylums. Sisters of 'Notre Dame teach
parochial schools exclusively; and the
convent of the Helpers of the Holy Soul
sends out Its nuns to Instruct the un
inatructed sick and the Ignorant In the
faith of the church.
The Little Sisters of the Poor care
for the aged; the Sisters of Bon Secours
are trained nurses who go out to the
homes of patients whenever they are
called; while the Sisteirs of Assumption
also are trained nurses who devote
themselves exclusively to nursing . the
sick poor, never entering the house
where the patient Is able to pay for
their services. The Presentation nuns,
and the Sisters of St. Domlnlok, each
have two or three branches, one of
which Is devoted to a contemplative
life, and the other occupied In the care
of schools or orphans.
"A number of orders exist specially
for work among the foreign population
of our cities. Such are the Slleslan
Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, the
Sisters of the Society of Pious Mis
sions, the Sisters of Cenaculum, who
work among Italians, the Sisters of St.
Agnes, the Sisters of Christian Charity,
the Sisters of the Holy Cross, who work
among the Germans.
"The Sisters of the Convent of St.
Regis afford ladles opportunity to make
spiritual retreat, and minister to the
spiritual needs of world-weary women
In a time of rest, penance and prayer.
"We have named but twenty of half
a hundred orders, but a glance at their
spheres of activity Is enough to satisfy
even the Incredulous) that they must
be a great help in gaining favor for
their church."

The Homo Missionary society of the
First Presbyterian church held a very
unique social Thursday evening. The
Invitations sent out to the members of
the church ware accompanied by a
dainty little bag, and on the card at
tached is this verse:
We ask a small favor, pray don't think us
Drop herein a penny for every year old.
If the years of your life. you're afraid we
can tell,
A dollar In silver will do Just as well.
The Lucy Logan Mission band have

Israelites. Mr. Levi being a descendant
of the tribe of Levi claimed the privilege
of announcing some of the blessings. He
did so, and was startled to hear a Welsh
response. It came from an old Arab, who
