A valuable church work In that It

among the deaf mutes. The Episcopal
denomination seems to have labored
among the deaf to a greater extent
than has any other church and with
such success by Mrs. H. II. Coston and
few other women of St. Luke's that
over fifty persons who are deaf and

thought as completely as have the more
fortunate of mankind who hear and can
speak. Deaf mutes who live In Carbon-
dale, Olyphant. Pittston and the towns
near to Scranton attend the occasional
services conducted In this city or vicin

by the sign language. The social work
of the Ephphtha guild of St. Luke's
does much to retain and continue the
