During tliu week beginning Die. :S
tlic Young Women's Christian nssocln
tlon will hold a "Dolls' Carnival" for
tliw edllleatton of West Scranton chll
tlron. The object of tin- carnival t.s to
secure money to raise tln debt against
thu organization. Jti order to in teres) t
Hie public the co-opcratlon of the blisl
noss men, ull leading eliurcli workers,
as tha association Is iiilcr-ilcnomlmi-ilonal,
must bo secured.
To Induce the business men to extend
their support the committee decided to
s'll spaces at a given price per run
ning foot to the leaning merchants In
ilie city to exhibit their wares In as
attractive a manner us possible, the
only restriction belli;? that no two
houses shall exhibit the same line of
goods. Knch proprietor will decorate
and otherwise beautify his own space,
the committee bavins erected a scaf
folding for the purpose. The value of
securing a space at tho carnival is two
fold: First, as an advertising agency.
In all probability thousands of people
will view the dolls during the week,
and visitors noting these different ex
hibits will know Just where to go and
purchase their Christmas gifts in a
manner pleasing to purse and taste.
Secondly, it will serve as an aid to
the organization holding the carnival.
Once the association Is put on a work
ing footing, llnanclally, the girlhood of
West Scranton cannot help but he
raised to a plane of higher Ideals
through contact with the association
and Its workers. This will mean an
increase in homes and better homes,
a decrease in financial drain upon the
public purse for houses of refuge and
correction and prison taxes.
The result is obvious. The better the
class of citizens, the better the business
interests. The co-operation of the
leading church workers has been se
cured and already these different com-

Number of Miners Have a Thrilling
Experience Revival Services.
Other News Notes,
That nn accident of serious propor
tions did not happen here yesterday
was more the result of good luck than
good management. The miners who
work in the Mountain shaft are carried
to and from their work upon the cars
that carry the coal from tho shaft
down to No. 1 breaker, a distance of
about two and one-naif miles.
Yesterday morning a train of ten
cars, upon which about ono hundred
men were riding to their work, was
partially demolished. Several cars In
tho rear part of the train left the track
as they swung around nn unusually
rough place on tho road at a rapid
pact. Tho cars weiu over-turned,
throwing the occupants around In a
lively fashion. Many scarred faces
and bruised bodies resulted, but,
strange to say, when faces were count
ed, every one was able to answer pres
ent. This lias been considered n dangerous '
ride by the miners for some time, and
It Is not likely tho experience! of yes
terday will do much to assure them
of its safety.
