Splendid Programme Rendered at
Penn Avenue Baptist Church.
The annual Christmas service of the
Sunday school of the Penn avenue 15ap
tlst church was conducted yesterdnv
afternoon in the main auditorium In
the presence of n large gathering.
The Sunday school children, of this
church have two distinctive Christinas
celebrations every year. At one, gifts
nre distributed while the other takes
largely the nature of a religious ser
vice. Tills latter was the one conduct
ed ypsterday afternoon.
The principal feature of the pro
gramme was an emblematic exorcise
arranged by the pastor, Ilev. Dr. Rob
ert F. Y. Pierce and entitled. "The
I'hristmas Message." This was enact
ed by a number of young ladies, one of
whom was dressed to represent a pil
grim weary of the world and seeking
the real meaning of the Christian mes
sage. Young ladles attired- to represent
wealth, pleasure, ambition, learning,
etc., sought tu show these things were
the Christmas message, but the pil
grim found no rest until a figure
garbed as mercy led to a gate opening
Into the celestial city. The gate was
opened and inside was revealed u cross
from which a crown was taken and
placed upon the head of the pilgrim.
The rest of the programme included
an address of welcome by Paul Benton,
recitations by Minnie Smith, Walter
Harris and Dorothy Capwell and the
singing of carols by the rest of the
Luther Keller, who presided, yester
day rounded out his fifteenth year as
superintendent of the Sunday school of

Judge Kdwurds to give $1,000 ball.
Mr. Freedman alleges that he en
gaged Mr. Okell as his attorney in the

11 is alleged, secured settlements of all
the pressing claims at fifty or seventy
live cents on the dollar, bought them

Williams, induced Friedman to order
a stay of execution so as to prevent ap
peals being taken, and then, securing
an assignment from "R. Williams,"
proceeded to collect the full amount
from his client.
Mr. Okell denies that he was acting
as Mr. Freedman's attorney, but on
the contrary was the representative of
the creditors. The allegation that "R.

ELOQUENT SERMON BY REV.
DR. C. M. GIFFIN.
Spoko Lnst Night In the Elm Park
Church of the Dangers Which
Beset the Mnrlners on the Stormy
Sea of Life Scathing Arraign
ment of the Wreckers of Human
Llve3 with a Local Application.
Praise for Those Who Havo
Sailed the Seas Unharmed.
Rev. Dr. C. M. lUfllii, pastor ot the
Klin Park Methodist Kploopal church,
delivered a powerfully eloquent new
year's sermon last night taking for
his theme, "The Wrecits of a Twelve.
Month" and choosing for his text this
following sentence from the Klghth
chapter of Revelation: "And the third
Wirt of Hie Ships were destroyed."
In beginning his remarks ho referred
to the terrible list of the shlpwreclw
on the sea during a year and compar
ed this with the sea of life.
"Ah, my friends,", said lie, "how
many there are who set nail on the sea
of life lnst January full of hopes bin
who were caught in the tempest of
temptation and swept on and on to
destruction und after all, what Is the
loss of ii craft or a cargo compared
with the loss of character and honor.
"I remember one year when the City
of Washington, splendid steamer that
she was, was caught by a gale In mid
ocean and torn to pieces but the pas
sengers got Into the life-boats and
were picked up later. A man down the
street here was caught In the teeth of
a tempest last October and went down
to destruction because he yielded to
QUALIFIED TO SPEAK.
"I believe that I am qualified lo
speak Intelligently of this sea of life
because I havo journeyed over It for
many years and have felt the pressures
of the great winds thai blow across its
bosom. I have heard the shrieks of
those who have been engulfed under
Its mad waves. I have seen the fires
kindling the passions of men upon it
until like craft of the sea they havo
burned to the water's edge.'
"I have noted the sandbars that have
caused the wreck of many a' man's life
and I have walked along their shores
and seen the broken hulls cast up by
the waves. 1 have seen the whirl
pool of sin and I havo seen men bein-j:
sucked slowly but surely down to des
truction. I think It best to suggest,
some of the reasons for this destruc
tion on the sea of life.
"We know that ships leak sometimes
through small openings and that the
water slowly but surely
tills until sue
sinks. So has it been with more than
one life in this city of Scranton during
the past year. Evil lias crept In
through one or perhaps two Utile,
openings and lias been followed by ap
"Many wrecks are caused by over
loading. Men who own ships put mote
into them than they can carry with
safety and when the tempest comes
they sink. What of the man who al
lows himself to carry burdens greater
than God Intended he should bear and
who goes down to the lowest depths
when the high seas come.
CARRY TOO MUCH CANVAS.
"Many ships go down because they
carry too much canvas and be
come top heavy. How many men
there are who are presumptions
enough to think that they can cany
any amount of sail with safety and
who go jauntily through life until all
at once they run Into a squall and
over they go
"Some wrecks are caused by lost
reckoning. The ship loses her way and
beats about her course,drlftiiig with this
current and with that, until she Is cast ,
upon some sunken reef and ground to
pieces on the rocks. There are so many ,
men who are drifting to and fro upon
the sea of life without any fixed inten- I
Hon. When I see them, I almost cry
aloud and wish to God that they had
set a star to guide themselves by, in- I
stead of floating with the tide. I
"There are countless wrecks caused '
by bad steering ammratus and bad

that it be under the complete control of
the pilot, the human will which must
be kept steady and clear.
"1 wish also to speak a little about
tho wreckers and tho rescuers who liuvu
been at work during the year l'.'Ol, The
wricker Is worse than the ghoul who
strips the dead bodies of peoph- killed
In railroad wrecks, These miserable

BATHS IN TUBKEY.
Our So-Called Turkish Variety
Unknown in That Country.
Plum Hip Hi-Ic-w of tho IVfi-k.
"Is the Turkish bath known In
!. Turkey?" This curious condition is
not unfrequently put to travelers from
J the east by people In this country. It
j is true there Is not much resemblance
i between the external appearance and
management of the so-called Turkish
bath in England and those of the
1 "haminam" In Turkey.
1 Outwardly the "hainiiiain" usually
presents something ot the appearance
of a domed sepulchral edifice. Of the
little domes or cupolas which rose from
Its roof that in the middle is the high
est, and is set with many smnll win
dows for the purpose of lighting tho
bath. The massive .walls that form the
sides of the "hainmaiu" have no win
dows and it is thought that if tho
walls wore pieicod tho outside air
would penetrate Into tho interior und
cause variations In the evenness of
temperature which It is held desirable
to maintain. The Interior thus often
becomes very close, as ventilation is
very slow, being only through the
opening by passers to and fro of tho
((,ui,i(. doors of the passage
. . .. .. ... .- , ,,
leans to ine cooi enirauce nan.
now and then the attendants burn
frankincense In the interior of the bath
with the idea of purlfynig the air.
The great warm hall under the cen
tral dome has generally three large
niches, two on each side and one In
front, as well as two little chambers.
Each of these niches and chambers lias
it roof In the shape of si half hemis
phere, which contains n few tiny glass
apertures, and which Is joined to the
central dome. In all these niches and
chambers there avc according to the
I ,!. of th,. bn Ih tub. two or three mar-
bio basins which nre ilxcd in the low
part ot tho wall, each basin bolupr pro
vided with hot and cold water taps,
Hound these basins people sit on mar
ble or wooden seats which are raised
about live or six Inches above the
lloor; and seated thereon they havo
their bath. Tho little chambers can bo
outraged for private use on application,
The entrance hall Is square shaped,
nnd lias trallcrles runniiiK itlons on
each side in which nre many beds. Tho
bath keeper Is always to be seen in his
place close to tho door, smoking- his
plpu or uarKullah, and saluting tho cus
tomers who come nud go. in the mid
dle of the entrance hall is n fountain,
tho pure and cold water of which is
eeaselessly plashing Into Its marble
tank. In this water fresh fruits and
bottles of lemon squash are kept cool
in summer tlmo for the uso of custom
ers. Near it n man may bo seen al
ways busy making coffee on the char
coal tiro, for most people are very ready
to take' a tiny cup of coffeo at almost
any time of tho day. Many of tho
Turkish baths are built double, one
portion being assigned for tho uso of
ladles. In poiiiu places ladles go to tho
bath only ou certain days of tho week
which nre consecrated to them. Cer- j
tain baths, again, am used by thorn
every day until 7 o'clock in tho evening,
after which hour thoy nro made over
for the use of men, The charges are
very reasonable. A man can have a
complete bath, and may stay on the
premises of tho establishment ns long
as lie pleases, by paying nbout Is. Sd,
Ladles pay much less than this sum;
their expenses can hardly bo much
over sixpence, as they take all their
own soaps, towels and clogs with them,
What they pay Is really the "water
fee" and n penny or two for tho attend
ant. A new feature which has been Intro
duced to the old Turkish bath Is tho
cold water douche which It is becoming
customary for the pi'tle to take after
their hut bath.

TO COME HERE
CONGREGATION AT FULTON BE
On January 2 the Church Offlclnls
Will Meot to Take Format Action
on His Besignntion, and on Jnnu
nry 6 the Presbytery at Syracuse
Will Dissolve His Pastoral Bela
tlons, Which Will Permit Him to
Come to the Second Presbyterian
Church of This City.
The Observer, of Oswego Kalis, N. Y.,
printed last Friday, contains the fol
lowing with reference to Rev. J. II.
Odell, who has accepted a call extruded
to him by tho Second 'Presbyterian
church of this city:
"The First Presbyterian church of
Fulton Is again without ti pastor, Rev.
.T. H. Odell having tendered his resig
nation to accept an urgent call from
the Second rresbytorlnn church of
Scranton, Pn. Ills rending of his letter
of resignation last Sunday morning was
not a surprise, although It was regretted
by tho members of his congregation In
Fulton. It has been known that a com
mittee had been here from Scranton to
hear him preach and had returned
home and reported very favorably to
their church. The call given him was
on unanimous one bv the Scranton
"Mr. Odell has boon In Fulton about
eight years and during that time ho
has proved himself one of the most able
pulpit orators In the state. He has
shown himself to have tho courage of
his convictions and upon public mat
ters wherein tho morula and the wel
fare of the people were at stake, he
had fearlessly denounced wrong from
pulpit and platform, while his sermons
havo been broad and charitable as re
lates to other denominations and be
liefs. Ho is a student and among his
best friends and advisors are the well
selected books In his library.
HORN IN ENGLAND.
"Mr. Odell was born In England and
after living In this country a few years
ho concluded to make it the land of his
adoption, and hence, took out natural
ization papers which were granted this
year, and for the first time he voted
last fall as an American citizen.
"The Presbyterian church of Fulton
will scarcely find a man to fill Mr.
Odell's place in the pulpit. The peo
ple will hardly expect it. But they will
wish him every success and happiness
in his new Held of labor and love.
"During his last year's labors in Ful
ton, Mr. Odell had tho satisfaction of
seeing the Presbyterian church remod
eled In the interior, some seven thou
sand dollars having been raised und ex
pended for that purpose.
"The people of Fulton will also great
ly regret that so excellent and capable
for good a woman as Mrs. Odell must
leave. Her counsel and' advice In church
matters have often been taken with
profit, and she has greatly endeared
herself to those who have formed her
"A meeting of the church offlclnls is
called for January 2, when It is ex
pected that Mr. Odell's resignation will
be accepted and that the presbytery
will dissolve the relation of pastor and
church at the session to lie held in
Syrnc'use, January 6.
"The church to which Sir. Odell goes
is one of the largest In that state, num

with better results for an equal cost.
