ELMHURST BOULEVARD EXCURSION.
It required about twenty-flye car
riages to convoy the delegates on the
excursion drive over Elmhurst boule
vard. It was after 4 o'clock when the
lust conveyance left the rendezvous in
front of the Young Men's Christian.as
soelation building. The number that
took the drive was large, considering
the raw air and threatening weather.
It wus nearly 6 o'clock when the car
riages returned to the city. The occu
pants, though most of them were chill
ed through, did not regret the trip. The
ride over the ten miles of mountain
macadamized road was enjoyable and
gave visiting delegates an idea of the
Bcenlo beauty of Scranton'a surround
ings nnd of Scranton's wonderful
growth In the midst of an environment
of mountain country.
The excursion was planned and con
ducted by the financial committee, of
which J. V. Browning is chairman.

Of all the jolly Endeavorers In our
city there are none more "effervescing"
than Eastonera from "the forks of the
Delaware." Since the announcement of
Easton as the convention city for '97,
their enthusiasm has known no bounds.
They are a crowd of workers that can't
he beaten anywhere. The evidence of
their good work was seen yesterday
when they made the plea for their
native city. By means of a canvas of
the city they have already secured ac
commodations for 4,000 delegates and
have raised $2,000 with which to pay
the expenses of the convention. The
Easton delegation arrived on Tuesday
evening and are staying at the West
minster. Samuel T. Clifton has charge
of the "Triple city" enthusiasts. He
talks Easton continually nnd his

At the meeting of the ministers of
Easton and vicinity held this week a
discussion of the welfare of the young
brought out numerous statements In
reference to the questionable character
of the "buttons" now so extensively
sold. They are worn by men and boys,
and sometimes by girls. Starting with
political emblems only, they have de
generated, bo that ambiguous and vul
garT)hrusoB are often paraded. The
ministers look the following formal ac
tion: Resolved, That the Evangelical Alliance
of Easton and vicinity, comprising min
isters of nearly all the denominations of
the Triple City, hereby expresses It strong
disapproval and denunciation of the i rac
tice of wearing "buttons" that bear Im
proper inscriptions, that tend to degrade
the murals of young people, and no: a few
of which are vulgar or grossly obscene.
Resolved, That we appoint a committee
to bring this motter to the otticlil notice
of the municipal authorities and the su.
perinteudents of the schools.

Equity Suit Brought by Mrs. Mary
Lynott Against Gilmore & Dutl'v.
Mrs. Mary Lynott, of West Market
street. Third ward, by her attorneys,
Patterson & Wilcox, began an action in
equity yesterday In court against Gil
more & Duffy.
She complains that Gilmore & Duffy
entered up a judgment in court against
her husband, Thomas Lynott, for gro
ceries he purchased between April IS.
1892. and March 1, 1893, and that on this
judgment a sheriff's sale took place on
a lot 50x300, seized and taken as her
husband's property, but which really
belongs to her.
It was sold on Sept. 14, 1R93, by the
sheriff and brought J200. The defend
ants purchased it, and now they have
begun nn action against her In eject
ment. She alleges that on July 2, 1882,
the lot was purchased by her son,
Michael M. Lynott, from II. B. Rock
well, with money she furnished. She
paid part of the money and gave a
mortgage for the balance, and on Feb.
28, 1888, paid the mortgage in full. She
now prays that the defendants may be
enjoined from proceeding with the
ejectment and that they be required to
deliver up the sheriff s deed lor can

Rumor Ts False Which Said They Will
Start I'p Monday.
There was a general rejoicing on the
South Side yesterday in consequence of
the assurance that the lower steel mill
is going to resume next Monday morn
ing. It was circulated around that a
notice was posted at the mill making
this announcement. ,
A Tribune reporter saw General Man
ager Henry Wehrum at his home In
Elmhurst last evening and was In
formed that the rumor is without foun
dation. He said:
"It such a notice Is posted. It Is
without any authority from me and I
know nothing about it."
In reply to a question as to the pros
pect of resuming soon, he said it ia
uncertain how soon an order may be
given to start up.

SCRANTON'S GREATEST HOME-FURNISHERS.
A SLICE FOR EVERY CRIMP.
VERY ONE knows how difficult it is to
cut bread properly aud so it will not be
uneven in thickness and look badly. The
crimps or corrugation in crust of onr loaf acts as
guide for the knife and the result is beautiful and
uniform slices. The Quaker puts that delicious
crisp crust over the whole surface of the loaf
you know how well we all appreciate it. Bread
so baked stays moist, because the moisture is shut
In by an all-over crust There is no heel to this
loaf because it can't lop over the pan as in the
case of all open pans. The crust does not crack
as in the old-fashioned kind, which allows the
moisture to slowly evaporate and leaves the loaf
dry and unpalatable. Quaker bread will not burn.
Two pans in one. Any two halves of the Quaker
pans will fit' together forming a. complete round.
Can be used as a cake baker, and for making
gingerbread is simply perfection.

ITS BE.UTY OF FORM and rich
ness of ornament have given
this stove its name. It is a
combined beater, radiator and hot
air circulator. Out door connec
tion can be made for fresh air sup
ply and rooms on upper floors can
be heated by connecting with
opening at top and rear of store.
The Silver Sterling has wonder
ful heating power, being con
structed with very large flues,and
the combustion chamber extends
to the top of the stove, thus in
creasing the radiating surface.
The return flue system is used.
The nickel dome has independent
circulation and ventilation. By
means of the extra mica illumina
tion the full effect of an open fire
is produced. Duplex Orate, with
shaking ring is used and the fire
pot is cast in one piece, with
" H. & W."
Cast from Special Hard Aluminum,
This Tea Kettle cannot rust, cor
rode, chip, crack or break.
It has no impurities as from copper,
and other Tea Kettles.
No Leaky Seams, no Knobs, no
Rivets, no solder.
