HIE WELSH CALVIN1STIC METHODIST
The organization of the Wtlsh Cal
flnUtlc: JU'thodist church was due to
th? efforts and Christian spirit of the
ate Walter Phillips, mine foreman un
der the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Wectivn Railroad company at Ileilevue.
The where the church stands was
purchased by the trustees of the Uelle
l ue church in the year 1SS.1, and the
Church which waa completed and dedi
cated in 1 S64 fur five yearn continued
to prosper and increased in member
ship, fcut alas, one night In the year
l"Ci) the Oxford mine caved in and dam
Bsed the property so that the church
had to be rebuilt. Then followed many
years of hard struggling to pay off this
additional debt, together with legal ex
penses that the disaster necessitated.
At one time the debt of the church
was over $12,000, a great deal to a
church where 99 per cent, of its mem
bers are hard working people. But
through the united energies of its pas
tor, trustees and members the entire
debt has been paid, and now the church
Is In a prosperous condition, There are
several well organized auxiliary soci
eties that render substantial aid to
the church and to its pastor, Rev. Hugh
with Key to the Scriptures," by the Rev.
Mary Baker Eddy, namely:
"First Church of Christ, Scientist," of
Scranton, Pa., located at 519 Adams
avenue, which was organized June,
1890, with Judge S. J. Hanna, of Den
ver, Col., as pastor. It has now one
hundred and twelve enrolled members,
and an average Sunday attendance of
nearly two hundred; also a Sabbath
school with fifty-two children enrolled.

lzed in 1885 by some soldiers from Ply
mouth and vicinity as there were no
soldiers in the city at that time. They
began the usual way by holding: open
air meetings, marching' through the
streets, thus gathering the crowds, then
marching to the hall, that was used,
often filling the place to overflowing.
In a few weeks hundreds professed con
version and the churches received many
of the converts, many joined tho army
work, striving to rescue men and wo
men steeped In all manner of sin; often
saving the drunkard who thinks it is
no use to try to stop drinking, whose
friends have all forsaken him. By sell
ing "The War Cry," our paper, the
members go,lnto many places and get
opportunities to talk with those they
otherwise could not reach. Often one
of the girls goes into these place with
a bundle of the "War Cry" under her
arm, and going from man to man puts
this question to one alter another, my
brother, if God should ask for your soul,
are you ready to meet Him?" Many a
man has been stopped on his downward
way by this simple way ot taxing uotrs
word to the sinner. The present mem
bership of the army here Is seventy-six
soldiers. We have our own hall, al
though It is not yet wholly free of debt,
our prayer Is that It soon may be. Cap

Women's Mission Societies.
Probably svery Protestant church in
Bcranton has a "Ladles' Aid" which
takes charge of much benevolent work.
In the smaller congregations the same
body attends to missionary work as
well, but the large churches have one
or two societies devoted to missions.
Two of these, that of the First Presby
terian church of Scranton, ana mat or
the Providence Methodist church date
from 1870. They were the pioneers of wo
man's missionary effort in separate so
cieties In this part of the state. Since
then other churches and denominations
have fallen into line, until now Scran
ton women support with prayer and
purse their own missionaries all over
the world. In the autumn the Home
Missionary workers meet to prepare a
box of neoesiary comforts to be sent to
some struggling missionary. These
boxes contain substantial garments for
himself and family, carpet, bedding,
table linen, books, toys, games and
candy are sent to him, and such let
ters of thanks corns back! Boxes are
also dispatched to colleges for the chil
dren of missionaries, to Industrial
schools in the south, sometimes to a
new hospital or emigrant home, or to
sufferers from fire or famine.
The sums of money raised for Wo
man's Foreign Missions vary from the
annual ten dollars of the smallest so
ciety, to eighteen hundred reported by
the largest. The same range is ob
served among contributions to Home
Missions, J1.6G0 being the largest
amount raised by one society. This In
cludes the value of boxes.
Many young people's clubs are auxlll -ary
to the women's societies or received
their first impulse from them. Boys'
and Girls' Bands, Young Ladles' 'Aid,
"Lend a Hand," "Willing Workers"
and the other motto clubs, Chrlstlnn
Endeavor and Student Volunteer, all
are children of Woman's Foreign Mis
sions. The latest branch of foreign work to
receive attention from Scranton- wo
men Is the McAU mission in France.
This originated In an appeal for teach
ers of a pure religion made by a group
of workmen In a Paris street to tho
Itev. Dr. McAll, who was In the city for
a brief rest. Dr. McAll and his wife
were sn Impressed with the need of
evangelical work that they devoted to
It their lives, 'interested their frinnda
and secured subscriptions not only in
Franoe, but in Scotland, England and
America. At first Paris was the mis
sion field, but as others came to their
aid other oltles were included and a
mission boat, "Ls Bon Messager." add
ed muph, to the possibilities of enlarging
the field. The work Is commended by
the olvll authorities, and some of the
stations are aided by native Protest
ant ohurches. Since Dr. McAll passed
to his reward, tho work still advances:
Over a million people listened to the
gospel last year at the one hundred and
Nine of the Scranton churches are
represented In the local society which
supports the "Scranton Mission" In
Plateaux, a suburb of Paris.

Scranton Christian Endeavor Union.
On May 11, 1882, the first Scranton
Christian Endeavor society was or
ganized in the Plymouth Congregation
al church, which still flourishes. The
seed planted In our city, took root and
spread until there are at present
twenty-one young people's society, and
ten junior societies connected with our
Th 1887 the organization of junior so
cieties was begun, although tho first
distinctively junior society was organ
ised in Tabor, Iowa, March 27, 1884. The
juniors have steadily increased until
the little "sister" ls following hard af
ter the "older sister," and it is hoped
they will go into every church where
the Young People's society is estab
lished, The societies of the City Union and
the dates of organisation as far as could
be secured are as follows:
Young People's societies Plymouth

of these have Junior societies also. We
look forward to the gathering in great
numbers of the Endeavorers of our
KeyBtone state In our city October next,
when the practical side of a great con
vention will be demonstrated.

In 18S0 the general conference of the
Methodist Episcopal church, Impressed
with the need of a purely denomina
tional society, made provision for one
known as the Church Lyceum, for men
tal Improvement, social Intercourse, to
organize evening schools, popularize
religious literature by providing read
ing rooms, etc."
Other societies followed, until we felt
that in union only was strength. May
5, 1889, a conference was held In Cleve
land. O.. conslBtinir of delen-atps from
the Oxford League, the Young People's
Methodist Alliance, Young People's
Christian . League, Young People's
snce of Ohio conference. After a thor
ough discussion and earnest prayer It
was resolved that these societies be
merged Into a new one called the Ep
worth league. The league ls divided
Into six departments, each having Its
special line of work: Christian work,
Mercy and Help, Literary, Entertain
ment, Correspondence and Finance.
A regular pledge ls provided, but its
acceptance ls optional. Splendid read
ing courses are recommended. There
is Junior league, for training boys and
girls under fourteen.
The first league organized in this city
wns that of the Simpson church, May,
1889, followed by those In the Kim Park,
Providence, Asbury, Hampton Street,
Park Place, German and Cedar Avenue
churches, with a totul membership
including the Juniors of 1,400. This
membership has more than doubled
since. All these are working along all
the lines, but special attention is given
to the Christian work. This last ls done
mainly through the Sunday evening
meeting, generally held before the regu
lar public service. '
It was thought a union of leagues
would be desirable, so In 1393 such a
union was organized, consisting of all
the above societies and also that of
Dunmore. This organization hold
meetings quarterly, and has supplied
a needed stimulus ant in several direc
tions. ELIZABETH M. RAUB.

Its operations that it Is needless to give
Its history here, but will mention some ot

A Green Ridge Circle.
About eight years aso the Watchful
circle of King's Daughters was organized
by a young girl of Green Hldge, who felt
that she and soiue of her friends, although
unable to accomplish much, might undor-
tuke some work "In His Nitmc." Tho
watchword chosen was "Set a watch, O
Lord, before my mouih; keep the door of
my Hps," and It was decided to meet once
a week to sew for some charitable objf ?t.
During the past few years tho meutuerit
of tho circle have been able to visit the
families for whom they have worked, anl

first by forming the "Silent Ten," mostly
of "Shut-Ins," who tried to do tbe littles
for the Master. Like the perfume of the
hidden flower, their progress and their
work have ever gone out to bless and
cheer. Later, a union of twelve circles
was formed which has done good work
