Rev. Courtney Fcnn, who has given
several leoturcs In this city on China
and the Chinese, nelelicsacel the Wo

Particularly Interesting was his de
scription of tho Chinese schools. Tho
Chinese scholars study out loud and
efforts to prevent this practice are not
only In most rnses fruitless, but also
disastrous. When 4 yearn of nge,
tho children ntc compelled to commit
the Chinese classics to memory, and
when in their teens their meaning Is
explained to them. These they nro
supposed to use on all occasions.
The uprising of tho Boxers was en
tirely unexpected, the speaker stated.
To HUtfltrate the suddenness of the
outbreak, Rev. Fcnn told the follow
ing story: A rarty had gathered to
witness the marriage ceremony of two
Chinese young people of his school.
In the midst of tho ceremony, a party
of Kosers swooped down on tho house,
killed the husband nnd pastor, but
the wife escaped.
"The Chinese people arc not so un
worthy; not so contemptible as peo
ple think," said thu speaker. "We are
wont to consider the Japanese ns a
progressive people," he continued,
"but should you go In any of the
banking houses in Japan, you will

that he cannot ttust tho Japanese, but

In front of the Home, which we owe
to tlio Undue... of our county official and
to Dunmoro borough, Mr. V. I. Smith having

tnat wc can have a vegetable garden, which we
ery much need, but which cannot be rtarted
until our domains can be protected. At our

ing the neglected condition of the grounds
touched on In the report, arose and offered to
pay half the cipcn.es of putting them In order
of the other half of tho money could be raised.
While the managers were endeavoring to com
ply with the terms of Mr. Stelle'a delightful pro
posal, ho made another generous offer to the
board, namely, to gltc $1,000 tqonard the debt If
$0,000 more could be raised by the first of August
a time he afterward extended until the first ol
Non ember. To this end at once all energies were
bent, and assistance flowed freely In on all sides.
The great heart of Scranton, throbbing with
kindly Impulse, manifested Itself. Men gate,

bore good fruit. Out nt the Homo four llttlo

November 2 the Joyful announcement was made
that the ?10,000 had been raised. The long meter
doxology afforded the only appropriate way of ex
pressing the managers' feelings and 11 was (rang
with a will. Today we owe $20,000, against which

they hae not spared themselves. To our ad

that Its n sources nro aried in the eitieme.
Although our building 1. pen, the committee on

occupy its attention, and has contributed largely
to the satlsf) ins the necessities of tho house and
to the comforts ot the inmates. 1 lie question
of our coal supply Ims become a momentous one
with which the fuel committee laliora as best
it may, faithfully as ever, but with a certain
sense of discouragement. Owing to the preval
ence of scarlet f'ver this year it was impossible
to hold many religious cervices at tho Home,
but those that were enjoyed were most acceptable
to all present. The committee on desserts Is the
means of much material enjoyment. The com
