Scrantnn's silvery Lackawanna and
musical Roaring Brook were unexpect
edly supplemented on Monday evening
by a rushing hill stream that spread it
self out into a broad and placid lake
opposite the Kim Park church and par
sonage. Three of the editorial and re
portorinl laborers upon this paper wer
Huddenly recalled from admiration of
the midnight on their way home from
the oilier by the apparent necessity of
swimming, but were finally fortunate
enough to discover a fording place In
stead. Just why the water company
turned the floods loose on the sleeping
city they have not confessed yet, even
to The Woman's Paper. But we re
spectfully suggest that next time they
provide boats and a ferryman.
AS SHE SEES IT.
The game of politics Is played almost
exclusively by men in Scranton. The
several women who have entered the
arena have done so upon the invitation
of some considerate and considering
man. The muntclpal departments pre
sent opportunities for the employment
of women at a profit to themselves and
to the city.
We have not been able to show this
matter to the officials as yet. In a light
sufficiently strong, probably because we
have not really tried.
The men, however, who fill these sev
eral posts have troubles of their own.
The festive place-hunter Is abroad In
the land and his importunities wax
greater every day. A glance in Mayor

men from several wards were there,
each fortified with Irrefutable argu
ments fur the appointment of th
ward's favorite son to nome post suited
to his undoubted gifts.
A poor woman also sat In the recep
tion room awaiting her oportunlty to
present her small petition to the Mayor.
All that she asked for was a place an

The need of good paved streets Is a
matter that should engage the serious
attention of our city fathers. Streets
that are not properly cared for are sure
to retard the growth of a town. In
many portions of our busy city the
thoroughfares are In a frightful condi
tion, cm the West Bide several of the
streets are not opened to their full
width. Houses have been erected that
stand outside what should be the curb
Year after year this matter has been
taken un, and as yet nothing has been
done. The longer the delay the greater
the amount the rlty will have to pay
when a settlement will be made with
property holders. Where will tho money
come from to settle these claims? From
the pocket of every citizen.
There will be a pro rata assessment
made to cover all expenses. Why not
attend to the matter now when It will
not cost as much as it will in a year or
Of course, a large outlay of money
will be necessary to accomplish this re
sult. The taxpayers know thin mid the
sooner the settlement is made the bet
ter It will be for all.
With good streets the number of pri
vate carriages would Increase. There
nre many beautiful turnouts owned
by Sernntonlans. which con bo
seen any pleasant day, drawn by well
bred, spirited horses. Among the own
ers of the finest equipages m:iy be men
tioned William Connell, YV. F. Hall

Congressman Scranton, County Treas
urer Hchadt, ex-Mayor W. 1.. Connell,
K. I,. Fuller, A. Ii. Spencer, W. U.
Parke. Col. If. M. Holes. O. R Jones,
F. M. Ppencer, Dr. A. J. Connell.
There nre a groat many more whose
names might be added to this list. A
few years ngo very few handsome car
riages were seen hero. The increase in
the number shows the strides we have
taken as regards our prosperity. The
fact that the private stnblen of our well-to-do
busli.-is men ore furnished with
the very latest appliances, that the car
riages are of the most Improved design
and best workmanship, that the horses
are the best money run buy, all go t
make a most Interesting picture as they
dash over our paved streets.
Whenever one wishes to take a drive
outside, the city there is only one direc
tion In which to go where one is certain
of finding the road in good condition,
and that Is over the lClmburut boule

OUR BROTHERS VICTORIOUS
The Girl Reporter Witnesses the
Base Ball Game.
IT WAS NOT A POLITE AFPAIR.
Young Men Actually Tried to Steal Bases.
The Plarers Were Mostly Pat The
Umpire Gets Utmsolf Disliked.
The Score Was 0 to 3.
Eighteen young men In unbecoming
blouses and knickerbockers strained
their backs In trying to hit a small and
unoffending ball with a club or catch
the same yesterday afternoon.
Nine of them were hired to wear the
name "Sdrunttm" upon their manly
bosoms and the other nine were paid to
perform a like duty for Providence.
One maustucheless. ho.trae and much
abusvd young men atood near the batter
and every few seconds yelled Dow
wowli" or "sl:w-ylkc!" In the regula
tion railroad biakeman style. The nine
men with "Scranton" on their chests
did not like his voice and they said so
frequently and decidedly.
The nine gentlemen from Providence
also took exception to the way he said
It could not have been a very polite
Same, for I heard people around me
talking of certain players trying to
steal bases, while certain others of the
hired men were said to have died at
different points on the field. When 1
spoke to a red-faced and fatherly old
gentlemen who jumped up and down,
;'.nd yelled all through tne game, con
cerning these thlnga, he only said:
"Th"! th'! th'! Dear! dear! dear!" He
followed these remarks by hastily leav
ing his seat and going to the other end
of the grand stand.
The men who play base ball seem to
be selected chiefly because they are fat.
1 could see some reason In this, as they
all have such a disposition to grovel on
the ground and roll over and over from
one corner of the patch to the other
that a thin man would disarrange the
enrth too much.
Considerable emotion was displayed
yesterday afternoon because a certain
man by the name of Chiles hnd depart
ed without saying good-bye. He seemed
to be a great pet of the association and
everybody was depressed. I did not
hear what his specialty was in the
There seemed to be nine games in
nings they called them.
I left when the agony was young and
when the men with Scranton on their
shirts were most abusing the little ball
and th moustochless umpire.
A young man connected with the
press told me he would send me a
pattern of the game If I would leave
early. Here it is:

SCHOOL D0ARD LIFE.
A Woman's Impressions of a Meeting of
All women nre more or lP3s Interested
In schools, and therefore In the board
of control. Perhaps they would like to
know something about the delibera
tions of that Important body.
It Is not muny years since the board
met In some old school house, but a
wider space than time lies between the
conditions now and of those days. The
line assembly room lit the Municipal
building Is all that can be desired by
a power so imhtential In the public
weal and in politics, as Is the board of
it contains a lot of nice little desks,
each built for one, with pretty blotting
paper pads that would delight the heart
of any schoolboy.
At the meeting Monday evening a
good many more cuspidors than mem
bers were apparent. With the excep
tion of the former, the room is all that
could be desired by tho new woman
who might be llred with the ambition
to run the schools. All the other ap
purtenances could be found useful. A
handsome portruit of ex-Presldpnt
Wormser looks seriously out over tne
assembly, mildly reproving by his si
lent glance the antics It ocaslonally
J ioanl of control meetings are less
formal than mny be generally believed.
At times several peoplti tulk at once
before the president is able to get In
ills remarks. Home of tho members
smoke good cigars, others discuss poli
tics in whispers, while others sit In
meditation upon business or domestlo
affairs. As a rule, it is raid, the meet
ings are rather dull. It Is only at In
frequent Intervals that a member
jumps up and down, shouts and shakes
his lift at hla colleagues.
To Judge from the session of Monday
evening, Messrs. We'sh and Conrad are
the quietest members of the body, and
yet we are told that they have a good
deal to say when there is anything
really Important. Mr. Mitchell Is a
very good looking and dignified presl
dent. U struck the listeners the other
night that he is also a humorist. The
gentleman from the Nineteenth Ward
arose hastily as Mr. Mitchell was about
to put the question regarding No. 10
school and anxiously demoded:
"Hut you nln't a'golng to put it to
vote jurt yet?"
"Oh. yes, 1 am," placidly replied the
president. "Just see me do It, now,"
which he forthwith did.
The Hoard of Control had a spasm of
reform on Monday evening. The mem
bers have just begun to hear a low,
deep grumble from that lion the peo
ple. It sleeps very long and soundly,
but when once aroused Is likely to roar
and there nre a good many school con
trollers in this vicinity who are about
now looking for some tree to climb. Tho
most avnllable one is No. 10 school,
which seems to promise considerable
shade at this time. Mr. Nots Is trying
to warn them off the errasB and away
from that location, but It Is evident
that No. 10 school will have to be the
horrible example that Is to mark the
calling of a halt In extravagance.
Of course tho economical principles
are all right, an they must bo set In
motion some time or the lion will as
more than ronr, but no doubt Mr. Nots
thinks It hnrd luck that he Is to be the
Mrst victim of reform and that his
giddy 236,000 building must come down
to a "plain and substantial" one for
230,000. Doubtless, too, it is easy for
the members to vote agalnBt another
new building with frills, since moBt of
them have already secured similar
giddy edifices for their own wards. The
public will, however, glady support
COMPENSATIONS OF CALAMITY.
Why Papa Walks the Floor With the
The Ctrl Reporter has had a very
pleasant interview with Mrs. Soo Hoo
Doo and her daughter. Miss Jennie. It
resulted In disclosing the fact that tho
young lady now seven months old is
not only a very pretty baby but that she
Is blessed with unbound feet, and will
be as able to pedal a bicycle or lloat
gracefully along the streets. In duo
time, as any other American maiden.
Mis. Suo Hoo Doo, however, finds her
own personal advantages still in the
small Chinese feet that are her own
portion, lor whoa Miss Jennie tries at
night it la her papa who has to walk
the lloor with her. We are really al
most afraid to take tho American wo
man Into couildence as to this matter,
however, for we should dreadfully dis
like to be responsible for setting a new
fashion In feet.
MRS. FRANCES E. HACKLEY.
Mrs. Frances E. Hackley, whose por
trait appears above. Is making a rec
ord of which any woman may be proud.
It Is seldom that one past middle life,
amid new Interests where most of the
years of maturity have been spent,
brings back to the old home of child
hood the blessing of her wealth to as
sist the struggling and encourage
those who labor for the higher good of
To the development of the youth of
our city Mrs. Hack ley's efforts have
thus far been directed, and already the
excellent results are widely known.
In tender remembrance of the fair
little daughter who came to the lonely
home after eighteen years of married
life, only to lend her sweet presence
for six brief beautiful years, the still
sorrowing and doubly bereft mother
now brings brightness and comfort to
many little forlorn lives and wretched
Much of Mrs. Hackley's attention Is
devoted to educational causes. Her
beneficences to many objects are mu
nificent in the extreme. One of her
gifts made within the past few days,
is the sum of ten thousand dollars
toward the new building for Barnard
The following sketch regarding some
of her kindness to this city is by the
wife of the Secretary of the Young
Men's Christian Association.
It was just one year ago that a lady
became known to many of the citizens
of Scranton by her generous gift to the
Young Men's Christian Association.
With thirty thousand dollars she en
dowed the manual training department
of that institution and desired It to be
called the John Raymond Institute, in
memory of her father.
She gave an additional sum of five
thousand dollars with which the fourth
floor of the Young Men's Christian As
sociation building could bo fittingly
prepared and equipped for such a work.
It was also Mrs. Hackley's desire that
the classes should be open to women
as well as to men. Twenty-nine young
women took advantage of the opportun
ity thus offered tho teachers of the
Kindergarten schools of tho city being
among that number.
Those who were present at the first
annual closing exercises of the John
Raymond institute on the evening of
the 23rd of April; or visited the exhibit
cf tho work done during tho year,
which was displayed in the reception
hall of the association, could not fall to
be Impressed by the quality of the work
from all the classes.
The endowment has given many the
assistance they would never otherwise
been able to get.
And though Mrs. Hackley will never
know In this world how many lives she
has helped In preparing for the position
Ood meant them to fill, yet we hope she
may for many years watch the pro
gress of this work she has started and
that her heart may.be gladdened as she
sees some of the lives of the men and
women she has thus brightened.
