Of the work being done by the John
Raymond Institute, Youpmt Men. the
current number of the Young Men's
Christian association's official maga
zine, says: "In an ever increasing de
gree this (a chief -factor in local edu

ton association, uupplemcnted as the
work has been during the past year
by the founding of the John Raymond
Institute of Alanual Training, through
the discerning generosltyof Mrs. Hack
ley. The fact that Mrs. Hackley's pur
pose In the founding of this work Is
for the education of young working
women also, gives Increasing scope and
value to the work In this community',
as the coming Institution for the in
tellectual and Industrial training of
many hundreds of Scranton's workers,
both of men and women.
"The various classes have now an
enrollment of at least 300 students.

showing for the llrst year's

Sermons on Pilgrim's Progress.
Rev. W. H. Stubbleblne, the pastor
of Calvary Reformed church, has de
parted from the usual method of Im
parting gospel truth, and thereby
struck a popular chord. Last Sabbath
evening he preached a sermon on "The
Principle of Death In the Soul," Illus
trating It by means of chemicals. The
large audience was deeply Interested
and good results followed. Tomorrow
evening he will begin a specially Inter
esting course of sermons on Bunyan's
Pilgrim's Progress.
These sermons will be illustrated by
means of three large oil paintings, and
from past experience in the use of
these pulntlngs thore Is no doubt but
that the seating capacity of the chapel
will be taxed to accommodate the
crowds that will attend to hear and
see these sermons. The paintings are
works of nrt nnd must be seen to be
appreciated. The subject of the llrst
sermon tomorrow evening Is "Leaving
the City of Destruction."

The Beginning of I cnt
One week from next Wednesday will
mark the beginning of Lent, a season
of prayer, abstinence and devotion in
the Catholic nnd Kpiscopal churches.
The llrst day of Lent Is known ns Ash
Wednesday In the calendar of the
Catholic church, for on that day the
faithful are supposed to be annointed
with ashes and to consecrate them
selves to penance for the succeeding
forty days. In the early days of tin
church the bishops on Ash Wednesday
imposed public pennnce on sinners.
After ashes had boon placed on their
heads, the erring ones were driven out
of the church with the foot of the
cross and remained separated from the
faithful until Holy Thursday, three
davs before the end of Lent.
The season of Lent was orduined for
the purpose of giving mnn-an oppor
tunity to mortify the llesh and to
strengthen his dominion, over the
senses. The last seven days of Lent
are known as holy week, during which
Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy
Saturday are observed. Lent termi
nates with Kaster Sunday, the feast of
the resurrection.
Condition of Jackson Street church.
' Affairs at the Jackson Street Bap
tist church are interesting the local re
ligious world at tho present time.. It
will be remembered that when Dr. D.
C. Hughes left the church pastorate
there was - evident dissatisfaction
among certain of the members. The
doctor resigned and left for New
York. Now, these members who were
opposed to aceptlnsr the doctor's res
ignation are withdrawing from the
church. Several Joined the Scranton
Street Baptist church this week and
others. have anounccd their Intention
of leaving the Jackson street body.
The older members are standing by
their church and are making deter
mined effort to obliterate the church
debt. A movement is on foot to raise by May 1. Nearly oil he amount
has been promised by the "pledge"
system. Among the members who re
fuse to leave the church there Is deep
feeling toward those who have de
serted in the hour of altltctton. The
Jackson street church Is pastorless at
the present time.
Some of the members think that the
church can better attack the debt if
there is no minister's Balary to pay,
but others are inclined to the belief
that without a head the church can
not live. Dr. J. W. Williams, formerly
pastor of the First Welsh Baptist
church, and now of Swansea. Wales,
Is mentioned as a prominent candidate
for the pastorate. When Dr. Williams
left here several years ago he took with
him the best wishes and esteem of
everybody that knew him. He has
also been partial to an English speak
ing congregation and It Is whispered
that he Is not wholly pleased with his
present environments. For these rea
sons it Is thought that Dr. Wiliams
would accept a call from the Jackson
street church. One thing Is certain,
he has the personality, the ability, and
general qualifications for rebuilding the
Hyde Park church, looking at It from
the church membership standpoint.
Rev. H. If. Harris Is also mentioned
as a possible pastor of the church.
