for the meeting of Monday night. Mr.
Shelty has ucceyited the call and will,

The July number of Young Men. the
olliclal organ of the local Young Men's
Christian association, has this to say:
"The greatest need of the Scranton as
sociation at present is men. The Scran

the association, and have enabled the
directors to pay off every cent of In
debtedness, buth for building and cur
rent expenses, nnd now they Justly look
for large results In the mental, moral
and physical Improvement of young
men. The secretaries of the associa
tion cannot do what must be done. At
least one hundred and fifty of our active
members should be active on some of
the association committees during the
coming year. At the May meeting of
the board of directors it was decided
to change the time for the rppolntment
of association committees from April 1
to September 1, and to request the pres
ent committees to continue in office un
til that time. This change was sug
gested because it was felt that the long
Interim during the summer months,
when bo many of our members were out
of the city, coming as It did directly
after the organization of the commit
tees, gave them a poor start for their
year's work. Under the new arrange
ment the appointment will be followed
by an immediate organization for work
at the beginning of the busy season.

From the Boston Traveler.
It has been Bald that no reigning
royal house In Europe Is free from the
taint of Insanity, and there are many
actual lapses into insanity, by reigning
sovereigns on record. John of England
was probably Insane toward the end
of his career. Henry VI. was dlntlnctly
an imbecile; so was Charles VI. of
France. If Philip III. of Spain were
alive in the present day he would cer
tainly be considered a religious man
lac. George III. of England was in
sane for ten years of the regency, but
this does not bring him under the terms
of the question. The late Ludwlg of
Bavaria was e. hopeless maniac, but
the most signal example of permanent
insanity on the throne was furnished
by Paul I. of Russia. Though he begua
his reign well, the French revolution
seems to have entirely turned his brain.
He forbade the wearing of round hats
or any French fashions throughout hla
empire, forced his soldiers to powder
their hair and wear long queues,
obliged his nobles to stop their car
riages In the street and get out and
kneel In the mud as he passed. He made
and unmade alliances and treaties with
the Irresponsibility of a schoolboy. la
fact, no sane man could possibly have
conducted himself as he did in such,
