The Woman's Foreign Missionary
Society of the Scranton District of
the Lackawanna Presbytery Be
gins Twenty-fourth Annual Ses
sion in Presbyterian Church Mrs.
Martin E. Kays Presides Interest
ing Doings of the First Day's
The twenty-fourth annual meeting of
the Woman's Foreign Missionary soci
ety of the Scranton district of. the Pres
bytery of l.iii'knwaniNi Is in progress
in the First Presbyterian church and
will continue until tomorrow noon,
when the election of ollicers will con
clude tlie work of this year's sessions.
Tlie Interesting work of t lit society,
which is doing tlie blessed work, with
equally blessed results, of spreading tlie
light and consolations of tlie Christian
faith among the less fortunate inhabi
tants of foreign lands, was commenced
under most favorable circumstances.
To begin with, there was the warm
hearted hospitality characteristic of
iCarbondale, which was greatly encour
aging to the visiting delegates and
served 'to make their surrtiundlngs
FOJiiowhat of mi inspiration. Then the
reports of the treasurer, and the, nu
merous auxiliaries, which Indicated ap
preciable In efforts and results for the
past year, were another l'aclcfr in "file
earnest soulful Interest that marked the
opening meetings. Another influence,
noL to bo passed, was the Inspiring
music that happily Interspersed the
day's programme. Still another most
helpful factor, was the demeanor of tlie
presiding olilcer, Mrs. Martin R. Kays,
of Scranton. Her cheerful tone, her
hind, apt observations and her prudent,
discreet manner, went a great way to
work up and maintain the Interest and
zeal of the delegates. Mrs. I. W.Welles,
of Wilkes-Harre, ably supplemented
Mrs. Kay's efforts.
In the evening there was a popular
meeting, presided over by Rev. diaries
K. Lee, pastor of the church, who did
much to Inspire the assembly.
The First Meeting.
It was 2.1." o'clock In the afternoon
when the meeting was formally opened.
The delegates were all on hand by this
time, their manner indicating their In
terest and eager anticipations of the
important meetings before them.
After the communion of the Lord's
supper, Itev. Charles Lee offered an
earnest prayer, begging the Lord's
blessing on the society's deliberations.
AVhen the devotional singing was over,
the presiding olilcer. Mrs. .Martin It.
Kays', Invoked tlie blessing with prayer.
The delegates were warj,nly Welcomed
to Cnrbondale by Mrs. Percy II. lirlggs,
of this city. Mrs. Itrlggs said thiU the
"OX TIIK SLY."

Curboinluln ladles felt a' joy, love and
pride In locelvlug the delegates. The
country was agog, n short time ago,
Bhe continued, over the arrival of n
loyal visitor and elaborate arrange
ments were made for his entertainment,

.family and heirs to the. crown V For
twelve months tlie Cnrbondale mem
bers have been aWattlng'yotir coming,
hoping ,to be Inspired and helped by
your zCnl. Wo cannot give you the
keys of our city, an Is often done In
tho case of distinguished visitors, but
the httchstrlngs of our homes and
hearts reach out to you,
Mrs. J. Seidell Ulnlr, of Scranton, in
responding for the delegates, heartily
acknowledged the warm cordially ut
the Invitation, and alllrnied that she
was glad of tho opportunity to testify
to the unbounded hospitality of Car
bondale women, for shu had often been
their guests before.
Mrs. J. P. H. Raynor presented her
report as treasurer. It showed uu In
ctcase of about $100 over Inst year.
The sum sent from the Scranton dis
trict for the missionary cause was $.1,
O0S.77. This was the largest sum sent
from any of the districts In the Lacka
wanna Presbytery. The aggregate sum
of the districts was 55,000.
When the report was accepted, Sirs.
AVelles olfercd prayer, In which she
asked the Lord to accept the thanks
felt for the money that had been gatlur
ercd for the work.
At this juncture, Mrs. Oeorge Mills
delighted the delegates with a charm
ing vocal solo.
The presentation of reports of auxil
iaries and bands followed. There was
a good deal to interest the delegates In
the various reports and there was a
good deal that was encouraging and
helpful. One society told how this
scheme and that suggestion bore fruit
among the members In various ways.
Then those societies whose results were
the greatest will undoubtedly act as
Incentives to increased efforts among
the less successful auxiliaries and
One of the references' during the
presentation, that struck n note of sad
ness was that which was made to the
death of the late .Mrs. John Xilcs. Her
loss was referred to as irreparable lu
tin- life of the Cnrbondale auxiliary,
and one that cast a dark shadow over
the members. The sum nf $:!0G.l!l was
collected by the Cnrbondale auxiliary.
Among the societies, which were par
tluelarly noticed for their results were
the Forest City band for Us average at
tendance and the societies of the Sec
ond Presbyterian church, Scranton, the
collections of which reached the record
Miss Aiwa AVIlllams, of Oreen Ridge,
read an address, which was from Mrs.
!"llzabetli Oregory, of AVilkes-Uarre,
and related to the work of the mission
bands. Among the valuable sugges
tions presented during the review of
the year's work, was one touching on
the organization of bands in places
where none. were located, in prepara
tion for tlie observance of the twenty
lirth anniversary of the missionary so
ciety of the Scranton district. Tills
will be next year, or. rather the year
now entered, and it Is the hope to make
it the banner year.
In this connection. Mrs. AVelles, after
tlie paper was read, urged a deeper
interest in tlie Idea of the meeting of
the societies as a Presbyterian society,
which takes place every live years. It
was her wish that this society could
meet oftener, and she Informed tlie
delegates that In Philadelphia there
was the greatest astonishment when It
was learned that the meeting was only
every live years.
Mrs. Frlsble read a message from
Mrs. F.leanor Vnnrterberg, who Is en
gaged with her husband, Dr. Vauder
berg Hi missionary wori; In China. The
delegates were greatly pleased to hear
from Mrs. A'anderberg, and listened
w I tli eager attention to jyliut was re
garded as a personal letter by all of the
delegates, so deeply Interested are they
in the author's labors In the far east.
Mrs. A'anderberg referred with particu
lar pride to the good results of educa
tion among' the Chinese.
A Talk on India.
Perhaps the most absorbingly inter
esting feature of the afternoon session
was the informal talk by Rev. C. A.
R. Janvier, who Is here In the Interest
of missionary work In India,
Rev. Mr. Janvier left his pulpit In
Trenton, X. .1.. llftecn years ago to en
ter the missionary field in India, where
he has since labored with a burning
zeal and undying devotion. lie is one
of tlie' most earnest and forcible speak
ers that has over been heard by the
missionary society of the Scranton dis
trict, and during his talk he spread
his thoughts In u manner that was
certainly Impressive and convicting.
He drew a graphic picture of the con
dition In India that make the spiritual
life of the natives as almost dead, of
the most confirmed torpor and leth
argy. He urged upon his hearers the
necessity of an awakening that would
mean greater results lu money sub
scriptions, lu volunteers .and. the power
of the Holy Spirit. This power of the
spirit, he impressed upon his hearers
with the utmost force, was the most
necessary factor In the work of devel
oping and sustaining the missionary
Rev. Mr. Janvier's description of na
tive llfo in India, was graphic Indeed.
Tho Immoi'hllty ,of the natives was
grossly flagrant; they are spiritually
dead, and to the extent that lie could
not alllrm tho statement that there was
no cause for saying thut there. hud been
a higher standard of morality among
these people as a whole,
During one of tho waiting periods,
Miss Minnie Wallace gave a clever rec
itation. After tho appointment of committee,
by the chair, tho first session ended,
the delegates repairing to the lecture
room of the church, whero a splendid
supper awaited them; Tho committees

The devotional meeting last night
was attended by a fulr sized assem
blage of delegates and townspeople.
The session was presided over by Rev.
Charles I.ee, pastor of the First Pres
byterlun church, and was pervaded
throughout by a deep religious fervor.
The meeting began at ".'0 o'clock.
The .chiT.v sang In flue spirit the an
tllein, "Lift Up Ye dlttes." Rev. Chus.'
Lee then read portions 6f the Scripture
from the thirty-third chapter of Kzek-'
lei up4 the tenth chuifn' of Romans,
and asked tho Divine blessing on the
reudln? of the same.
Rev. Mr, Lee then made a few re
marks, He characterized the mission
ary, movement as the greatest Institu
tion In the world, The running of
commercial enterprises are as nothing
compared with the carrying on of this
one. It Is nn enterprise started In the
blood of the Son of aotl and committed
to his people to carry on. Each Chris
tian man und woman Is a partner In
this work, a work supreme, towering
nbovo everything else In this world,
Mr. I.ee then Introduced llt-v. Mr.
Janvier, of India, the missionary who
spoke In the afternoon. Ho spoke nt
considerable length, describing In a
very unusual and effective way the
work of tho missionaries to' India, Mr.
Janvier's work there might be divided
Into four lines as follows:
Pastoral work, very similar In Its de
tails to pastoral work lu this country;
that Is, tho reception of visitors, study
talks with the doubting, the converts
und the Inquisitive heathen,
Secondly, editorial work, the publish
ing of a fortnightly paper used to
spread the gospel throughout the Chris
tian and many of the heathen homes.
Thirdly,' Evangelistic: work, or the
holding of gospel meetings nnd visiting
the homes to curry the light of the
gospel among the converted. Singing
has n large part In the effectiveness of
Fourth, Kdueatlonnl work. Rev. Mr.,
Janvier had charge of a boy's high
school, whero religious exercises are
made an Important part of the work.
These educated boys, It Is found, gen
erally abandon the superstitious and
traditions of their heathen religions,
and, while they may not have professed
Christianity through the Influence of
their surroundings, many of them have
a llrm belief In the Christian doctrines;
and. Mr. Janvier believes, the time will
come when they will- acknowledge the
faith, whatever the cost.
In addition to the above, there Is the
hospital work: tho relief work: Insur
ance or pension work, and other side
lines which fill In the spare time of an
already busy life. In closing, the
speaker exhorted his hearers to take
upon their hearts somewhat of the
burden carried by the missionaries and
to consecrate their energy to a work
delegated to man by Christ himself.
At the conclusion of Mr. Janvier's ad
dress the .choir snug "Come Holy Spir
it." A collection was then taken to
raise money for the printing and con
tingent fund. After the singing of a
hymn, Rev. Mr. Janvier ottered prayer
and' benediction. ,
The convention will re-assemble at 0
o'clock this morning. It will be the
closing session, The programme will
be as follows:

BIGGEST HOUSE OF SEASON.
May Flske Company Plays to Re
markable Business at the Grand.
The May Flske company, which
opened a thro days' engagement at the
Grand last evening, has tlie distinction
of playing to the biggest house of this
season. Incidentally, It might be men
tloned'that Manager Byrne says he can
lecall but one Instance In which there
was such a throng us jammed the play
house lust evening.
The company Is the best offering In
the way of repertoire thut bus been
presented this year. As a company
playing nt popular prices, It was a
revelation, nnd the audience was cer
tainly the best pleased of the season.
There Is no doubt that everyone felt
ho had been repaid as never before,

tunes of persons who live lu tho fnr
AVest, The adventures and luck of n
young gold hunter lu the Klondike and
of the efforts to deprlvo him of his
riches. There Is an abundance of,
comedy to umuse everybody, and in It
Miss Flske shines as an ongnglng sou
biotte. The other members of the
company were meritorious lu their
The specialties were unexcelled. The
moving pictures were tho best seen
hero this seuson, Bouldeu und Qulun,
In n musical turn, were an exceedingly
'lover team. Miss Flske entertained
with specialties;, also AValdo Whipple,
while Emery niidlAVodlno gave some
good Illustrated songs,
The feu t lira of tho performance was
the presentation of Mrs. Tom Thumb
and her midget husband, the count;
also Baron Mugti, another wee bit of
a man. These Interesting personalities
were showered with applause,
This afternoon, Mrs. Tom Thumb, the
count nnd the baron, will give a re
ception lu conjunction with Miss
Flske. The bill will be "Peg AVofllng.
ton. Tonlsht, "I'mler Two Flags"; to
morrow afternoon, "Charity Girl";
Saturday night, "Tho Gold King."
'The Immense audience last night was
ii striking lllustiatlon or what a factor
tho out-of-town patronage Is. Tho
running of tho street cars contributed
largely to tho, throng present.
TO TANNERY SWITCH,
Trolley Cars Will Hun Beyond City
Line for the First Time Today.
Forest City Line to Bo Opened
Commencing with this morning, tho
trolley cars will run beyond tho, city
lino as far as the tannery switch. This
Is tho first trnm In that direction slneo
the shutting down of the road on Sept.
20 of last year. The schedule will bo
the same as before the strike a car In
either direction every half hour.
The line to Forest City Is ready for
operation, but the company Is not pre
pared, as yet, to place cars In opera
tion. During the strike, tho cars wero
not kept In repair, us there was no
necessity for It. This leaves a short
age, which will bo relieved as soon ns
tho cars can be turned out. The line,
as mentioned before, Is ready for oper
ation. What little repairs are neces
sary In the way of new wires nnd the
like, have been fully attended to and so
soon as tho company bus cars at Its
disposal, trafllc to Forest City will be
resumed. Perhaps before another
week, cars will run through from
Scranton to the fend of the division.
It Is quite remarkable, the Impetus
that has been given to alt lines of
business by the settlement of the
strike. It Is noticeable In the air of
confidence thnt fill the merchants und
others who are engaged In commer
cial activities. The crowds on tho
streets seemed to have greatly In
creased, the cars bringing persons Into
town evenings, who remained away
while subjected to the Inconveniences
of trudging Into town. Tho resump
tion of travel has been the means of
bringing an Increased number from
nearby places, south of tho city, to
transact business nnd do'purchaslng In
Cnrbondale. Merchants readily testify
to this, having received orders since
Monday that should and would have
been placed several weeks ago, but for
tb'e fact that the cars to this city were
Travel continues to Increase dally,
and with the opening of the Forest
City line, nn adedd Impetus will be
felt In trade circles. The prospects of
a lively spring and summer trade in
Carboudale grow brighter each day.
Limbering Up for the Opening of the
Season with the Scranton Team A
Practice Game Saturday Club to
Bun a Social.
The manager of tho Crescents Is
shaping mutters for the appearance of
the team In Scranton on Saturday,
April 2G, when a game will be played
with the nrofesslonnl team that will
represent the Electric City in the Penn
sylvania Stnte league this year.
The Crescents are already giving close
attention to tho preliminaries of the
game. Alt' of the players are in active
training, nnd not a day passes, that is
favored by the weather, but what they
get out and practice. In order to get
themselves Into fine fettle for the first
real contest, the management is arrang
ing for a game, a practice game, to take
place the beginning, of the week. Tho
opposing side, if the arrangements
under way be perfected, will be made
up of plnyer,s from the different parts
of the town who know how to play the
game and will give the Crescents a run
for their glory.
Much Interest is manifested In the
game with Scranton, and there Is con
siderable speculation as to the person
nel of the Crescents on that occasion.
Tho Tribune today publishes the first
authoritative line-uD on that day, the
others that appeared being purely
guesswork. T.'nless sickness or some
other accident occurs, the Crescents
will play us follows: Loftus, catcher;
Smith, McAndrew, pitchers; Mornn,

yield to treatment, or to people who are past the youthful stage of life and Avant confidential
advico about their ailments or; their physical condition, Dr. Pierco offcra to carefully consider
your case and give you the best medical advice within his power, free of cost to you.
We give here the letters of a few women who have been benefited by writing to Dr. Pierce.
"During my two jears of married life I have not had good health," writes Mrs. Daisy Studdard of 608 S.
Esplanade Avenue, Leavenworth, Kans. I was all run-down, and my husband got me to write to Dr. Pierce
and .explain my case to him and see if he could do me any good. So I wrote, and, thank the Lord, I got ah
early reply telling me what the trouble was. I commenced taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and also
the 'Pleasant Pellets,' and now can say that I feel like a new woman, and can say also that we have a big baby
four months old. It was just wonderful how I got along, and now I do all my work and do not feel tired ont
like 1 used to. I have taken eight bottles of the ' Favorite Prescription.' It makes one feel well and strong."
Mrs. Claus Nelson, of Pico Heights, Los Angeles, Cnl., Box 31, writes: "You have my heart-felt thanks
for your kindly advice in my sickness; also for your book which I received two years ago, and which I could
not do without. It is all the Doctor I have had since I got it. Your ' Smart-Weed ' I always keep in the house
and could not do without it. I had female trouble, and Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, together with the
advice given in his book, cured me of five years' sickness."
"I received both of your letters," writes Mrs. Eva Vedder, of Oneida, Lenawee Co., Mich., "and would say
I do not know what my trouble was unless it was a misplacement of some organ in the abdomen. I was so
weak I did not have strength enough to stand on my feet long at a time, neither could I sit up .very. long.
There was a sore spot on the left side of my abdomen which pained me very much when I walked. I.lost my
appetite, had a severe pain in the pit of my stomach which was worse when lying down. I commenced .with
your medicines, taking Favorite Prescription ' and 'Golden Medical Discovery,' alternately, and when I had
the two bottles half taken I was much improved. I took four bottles, and to-day I am just as well and strong
as anybody could ask to be. My husband says, ' Dr. Pierce's medicines have been worth one hundred dollars
to us.' AVe feel that we cannot say enough for the good I have received from your medicines. I thank you
for your kind and quick replies to my letters."
"When I wrote to you, sometime ago, asking for advice, I was in very poor health, writes Mrs. Ethel
Trepto, Merrill (West Merrill), Wisconsin, Box 54, "suffering continually with severe pains and terrible head
aches, and was confined to my bed the greater part of the time. I thought I was in a delicate condition, and
thinking that something must be wrong,, I consulted three different doctors, all of whom are commonly called
good doctors. None could tell what my case was. One said that in no way could I be helped except by
having an operation. Every woman dreads the thought of an operation, and so did I, and besides I was not
in circumstances to afford an operation, so after reading one of Dr. Pierce's pamphlets, I decided to write to
him. I did so, and was told my case resulted from catching cold und not properly caring for my health at the
time of monthly period, also that my kidneys were in bad condition. My back was fairly sore from continual
aching, and sometimes when I would lie down someone had to rub my back for nearly an hour before I could
get any rest. I had a bad cough all the time, and my friends thought I had consumption, or was surely run
ning into it; and' very rapidly, too. After talcing three bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and two
of the 'Golden Medical Discovery,' and two vials of Dr. Pierce's Pellets, I am able to say truly that I am
cured; but I shall continue to take your remedies a while yet, so as to make sure that there will be no
further trouble of the kind. I thank God and Dr. Pierce so much for being in as good health as I am to-day.
