Evangelist Schlevera la not coming; to
Seranton thla season. This la the deci
sion reached by the committee who
were considering the matter.
Mr Schlevera would have come had
the committee pledged fiuanclal support
and this they decided they would not
do without first making a canvass or
the city In order to know Just how
much they could undertake and pay for.
but as these arrangements could not be
undertaken In the time Intervening the
date when Mr. Bchievera could come,
they decided In the negative. In their
estimation this was a wise thing to do
under the circumstances. When a cash
system of doing Christian work has
more generally come Into favor the
workers will find the results more sat
isfactory. SaMone of the committee: "There will
then be no debt hanging around to fret
the spirit of the workers, and when
you stop to consider. It does not seem
Just that the Lord and His work should
be compelled to shoulder the responsi
bility of repeated and Inexcusable
ibad business ' management and poor
Judgment. If the business houses of
Seranton were conducted as the major
ity of the churches are the store win
dows would be tacked full of sheriffs'
It is not likely that the cause will suf
fer because of this apparent neglect of
the opportunity of having Schlevera
preach to the multitudes of Seranton.
a.i there Is now a splendid work being
carried on by the Young Men's Chris
tian association at Nay Aug falls and
by the Rescue 'Mission on Franklin ave
nue. Sounder naso I Needed.
1-Vf ore any new religious work Is un
dertaken by the people of Seranton It
is hoped that the religious promoters
wilt lend their efforts toward making
permanent some of the -work that Is
now being done by "putting a more
g.mnd. financial basis under some of it.
One reason for the success of the
Young Men's Christian association
work is that .business methods are ap
plied to It and consecrated Christian
business principles are bound to be suc
cessful. Some of the religious papers have
been talking about clear-cut theology.
By all means let us have clear-cut the
ology. Many of the leaders on theology
contrive somehow to mystify their re
ligion in the minds of many people, and
especially among the young people; In
deed, it Is safe to say that a large per
centage of church membersjknow very
little about the foundation principle of
their religion. This mystification and
nppurent lgnoran.ee. of .what should be
thoroughly clear and easily understood
Is 'he cause for a great deal of the
flotsam which Is continually attaching
and detaching, itself' to and from the
different religious organizations. The
thing for all Christian workers and
speakers to, do Is. first, get . the story
straight and then tell It to others, as
straight as you believe. If one cannot
preach straight, one had better not
preach at all. .
Christian Endeavor Platis.
'Arrangements have been completed
for the transportation of the delegates
from Northeastern Pennsylvania to the
Christian Endeavor state convention
at Erie. Aug. 22 to 35, Inclusive. The
party will leave here on the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western 12.10 train
Wednesday night, Aug.' 21. says the
Truth. It is a fast express and the
delegates will reach Erie at 7.07 Thurs
day morning. The railroad rate Is one
and one-third fare for the return trip.
From Seranton, (Pittston and Wllkes
Barre the fare will be $12.14. Delegates
will reach 'Seranton on the evening
train and Join the 'Seranton party here.
The Seranton City union will arrange
a reception for the out-of-town dele
gates and alt members of every society
of the union on the evening of Aug. 21.
Secretary George O. 'Mahy has given
the use of the Young iMen's Christian
association parlors for the reception,
and It wilt be made a very pleasant
event, lasting from 9 o'clock until J2.
A committee will meet' delegates at
train, and they will be escorted to the
hall. A special meeting of the executive
committee of the union .will be called
I for next Monday evening at the Young
'Men's Christian association to make ar
rangemonts, and a full attendance of
the presidents and corresponding secre
taries, constituting the committee, Is
urged. There is a special interest In the
Erie convention from ,the fact that it
will there be determined .whether or not
Seranton will have the convention next
year. The city committee will go there
with strong endorsements and prepared
to do hard work. Information about
1he transportation of the convention
may be secured from J. C. Manning,
Pittston, president Trl-County union,
and transportation agent, or C. E. Da
niels, Scr,anton, secretary union.
Is a Novel Method.
Another of the novel religious agen
cies for which, the past few years has
been noted, is, the Charles N. Critten
den rescue car, . the ' "Good iNews,"
which will, leave New York Aug. 19 .on
a missionary tour of the United States.
The trip will last, a year and a half and
will include Seranton. The car has
sleeping accommodations ' for fourteen
persona and a kitchen and dining room.
Services wilt be held from the platform
at stations to which word has been sent
on ahead to Christian workers. The
evangelical party will be composed of
men including Mr. Crittenden, OUr. Ooff,
iwho was formerly a Buffalo lawyer and
owned the car' and Is now a' convert:
Mr. Ooff eon, J. Carpenter, of Jersey
City, and several Chicago evangelists.
At some places the car will lie to for
several days. The party will establish
new missions . and Florence Rescue
circles consisting of ten workers each.

The following little nuggets of Young
Men's Christian association news ap
pear In the current-Issue of "Young
Men," which I published monthly toy
the Seranton. association: ."Assitant
Secretary Charles Wiley retains his po
sition with the association, but has ar
ranged to give part of his time to study

attend the School of the Lackawanna

At ' tts iast monthly .tatetlng the
board, of director created a pew office,
namely tn t of meraberghiB and. educa

the educational work, and the necessity
of securing a man 'thoroughly fitted to
superintend the - manual training' de
partment of the;'John Raymond Insti

roughs, of Washington. D. C, has been
engaged. Mr. Burroughs graduated

one who stood well up tn his class, both
for scholarship and oharacter. His con

NEW SOXG BY PROP. DAVIES
Herbert and Smith's Opera to Be Givoa
Trial at Wilkea-Barre-Prof. Roberts '
at Atlsatlo Clty-Impresaarlo '
T. X Davles Mu. Baa, has recently
composed a beautiful Sacred aong for
basso, which will probably be en
titled "Out of the Deep," and will be
dedicated to Scranton'a well known
basso, Richard Thomas. The theme is
worked out in the finished and charac
teristic style of the composer and is
undoubtedly one of the best things he
has ever produced. The Bong will no
doubt be published and placed on the
market In the near future and cannot
fall to become popular.

Professor Roberts, formerly musical
director at St. Peter's oaithedral In this
city, now has charge of the- choir of
St. Nicholas church in Atlantic City.
Professor Roberta has gathered about
him noma excellent voices from the
coterie of operatic singers who are
spending 'the summer at the seashore,
and his choir Is celebrated for tts ex
cellence. Several prominent vocalists
of the Aborn Opera company are In
Professor Roberts' choir.

Impresario Mackay. of the Mackay
Kenny Opera company, which played
an engagement at the Frothlngham last
summer, is organising a new company
and will go on the road on September

Herbert A Smith's new opera, the
"Wizard of the Nile," which Is to be
produced by Frank Daniels under the
direction of Canary & Lederer, will bo
given a first presentation at Wilkes
Barre In the near future. The libretto
of the opera, it Is said, has been written
to order by Mr. Smith, and has been
prepared with thaJdea of giving Come
dian Daniels opportunities for display
ing his peculiar talents to the best ad
vantage. - The announcement that Vic
tor Herbert la composer of the music
will be sufficient guarantee of Its excel
lence. II II II
Speaking of Canary A Lederer, It
seems a matter of regret that their
selection of a day representative at the
beautiful Casino should have been so
unfortunate. The average citizen,
whether purchasing tickets or in search
of information otherwise, can never
fully realize his Insignificance until he
stands trembling before that awful
being who presides at the Casino box
office. The ordinary man who can
face the Icy stare from the eye glasses
of the diminutive specimen of the "mar
ble heart bluff" and nut feel congestive
chills creeping up hi back would need
to be encased in heavy weight flannels
with mercury at 96 In the ahade. Any
lack of enthusiasm that may be notice
able In the Casino audiences may be
accounted for In 'the supposition that
the spectators have been paralyzed one
by one, as they entered the bouse, by
the little ticket seller.

If a man writes or composes a song
In Paris and Is able to get It sung at one
of the cafe concerts or oafe chantants
of that city he Is sure to get financially
rewarded In proportion to the taking
quality his work has with the public
and the number of times It is given.
For a society is now In active operation,
covering the provinces as well as Paris,
known as the 'Musical Authors', Com
posers' and Publishers' society, which
deals directly with the places of amuse
ment themselves and collects the royal
ties from first hands.

A considerable hindrance to the dra
matic art of this country Is the fact that
players no sooner make a success than
they fall vlstlms to staromania. (Every
morning for the last six years Henry E.
Dlxey has opened his window to scan
the horizon for another "Adonis," and
Lillian Russell would almost be per
suaded to marry the composer who
could write a second "Girofle-Glrofla."
If Robert Mantell could find the suc
cessor to Lorls Ipanoff he would pay
up his arrears In alimony and return to
town in a chariot. The play's the
thing. During her last engagement in
this city Rose Coghlan lost $20,000, and
the man who had all the money spent
by Fanny. DavenpoH before "Oris

go a fishing In his own yacht. New

Lillian Nordlca was singing a few
nights ago at the opera house In the

All Her Lift Happy Releatt at Last
of Mitt Alice Young, Who Re
tidtt at 392 Alaxandtr Stratt,
Rochttttr, N. Y.
(From the Rochester Democrat and Chron
icle.) Our representative was received very
pleasantly at 892 Alexander street, by Miss
Alice Young, who told how since childhood
she had been held in the bondage of pain
from her back, never remembering the
time that she had not suffered pain or
aohes In the region of the kidneys. Many
were the means she used to find relief, but
there seemed no remedy for her case and
she remained a captive; then along comes
these little enemies to backache, Doan's
Kidney Pills, and a half box releases the
bonds, aa one by one the aches and pains
disappear, she finds herself a slave . to
pain no more, by their continued use. She
says: "I was entirely relieved of all my
suffering and now I am perfectly strong,
healthy and wall." -
"How did you take this remedy r Miss
Young was asked by) our representative.
She replied that she followed directions
explicitly. Miss Young then told how the
malady affected her, saying 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 pain In the kidneys all the time
and If I caught cold It would always settle
there; the pain I suffered was of a very ex
hausting nature; at night I could only lie
flat on my back, any other position caus
ing pain and suffering; the nerve passing
up my back were affected and this brought
with It severe headaches, but as I said be
fore, Doan's Kidney Pills have removed
all pain and suffering entirely and I never
felt better and healthier In my life."

The Wllkes-Sarr Kodak has the fol
lowing kindly comment upon Miss Sadie
Kaiser, who ia winning to much favor
as a vocalist in London: The welcome
that awaits the return of that fair
singer. Miss Sadie Kaiser, ought to be
a rousing one. This brave tittle woman
did more than many people give her
credit for when aha went across the sea
and accepted the hard and serious work
Involved in musical study. The fa
mous Emma Abbott used to say that
none knew, save those who have en
dured it, the fortitude and self denials
that are demanded of a vocal student
in Europe. It Is always and ever hard,
ceaseless, unsympathetic labor, with
the heart at times almost broken down
with the thought of possible failure.
Then the life among strangers, far from
home and with no familiar voice to
cheer when hop Is drooping. All these
things are hidden from the friends of
those studying abroad, and it Is safe to
say that Miss Kaiser has had her share
of them. It is sincerely hoped that
when the little lady Is finally released,
which will not be for a long time yet, as
she expects to return after a brief home
visit, she will win that applause
and fame which waits on the kind of
preparatory work she Is doing.

Miss Elsie A: C. VanDervoort. of New

last Sunday, and It Is rarely that a
singer receives such universal prajse
as was bestowed on this young lady.
Those who were fortunate to be pres

ftiends with them In the evening to
hear her, nor was anyone disappointed.
She possesses a voice of wonderful com
pass and of the richest quality. She
reads music at sight and Is a thorough

their excellent quartette, which will
now be composed of Allsi Sullivan. Miss

An Interesting anecdote Is being told
In Xew York about Mme. Metba. On a
recent occasion she took the part of the
queen In "The Huguenots" at a per
formance at the Hotel Savoy. During
the performance a little child was play
ing near the door. In the midst of one
of the exquisite thrills of the role, the
child became excited and, running to
its mother, who was In the audience,
cried In audible manner: "Listen,
mamma, birdie, birdie." The effect was
magical. The audience broke forth Into
a storm of applause. After the per
formance the great singer said: "Noth

Home and Abroad.
It Is the duty of everyone, whether at
home or traveling for pleasure or busi
ness, to equip himself with the remedy
which will keep up strength and prevent
Illness, and cure such Ills as are liable to
come upon all In everyday life. For In
stance, Hood's Sarsapartlla as a general
tonic, and to keep the blood pure and less
liable to absorb the germs of disease, will
be well nigh Invaluable. Change of drink
ing water often onuses serious trouble,
especially H one has been used to spring
water tn the country. From a few drops
to a teaspoon ul of Hood's SarsapariUa In
a tumbler of water will prevent the water
having any Injurious effect.

THE WOODLAND MINSTREL.
In the deep woods remote
A sweeter minstrel dwells
Than ever piped a morn or even not
In all the song-swept dells.
It Is no voice that soars
Unwearying to the blue;
Transient, elusive while the soul adores
A phantom of the dew.
A sense of sliver bells '
Swayed by light winds a thrill
Keen as the leaf feels when the spring
And sculptures It at will
And ere the tips can say ' ' '
A song has been, awara
Of mystery, the soul has lost Its way
Doubting and dreaming there.
As one In shadowed bowers
Of sleep may hear a strain
Which haunts his memory in his waking
Nor makes Ms meaning plain.
Soft as a wavelet's plash
Against the sandy walls
O, that the mystic melody would dash'
Down like the waterfalls!
But all the wood Is stirred
From violet to pine;
And I have Aaard-and yet I have not
A meody divine!
- ' '.:. .
Voice of the woodland thrush I ' T '
Phantom of song, that fears -The
rushing of a leaf, a rose's blush' 1
And diet when Love appears. .
I lose myself In the ' . '
As one who, billow-tost
And drowning, hears strange music In
Lulled by the sound and lost!

New York. Aug. .-peeulaUoa at
the Stock Exchange started off quleUy
enough, and for soma time after the
opening there were but two movements
that attracted attention. General Elec

about arrangements looking to a work

but It was found uphill work to press

and other specialties showed unwonted
strength. Manhattan waa really the

planation for the rise than the covering
of a large short Interest, made some
time ago, was forthcoming. In the re
mainder of the list there was a notice
able absence of offerings of long stocks
and the bears were considerably dis

Pacific and the Grangers moved up H
