THE GAME CALLED.
Crescents nijtl; Susqttohanna Teams
Vanquished by Jupiter JPluvlus, at
Susquehanna, on Saturday Two
Innings Played Other Ball Games.
Juniter Ptuvtus' mood on fin tu relay
broke up thn .gntnc between the Ores
cents nilrt tlie Bttsquennniui icuiii
The game was abruptly ended In the
second Inning, with the score 2-1. The
Crescents easily made two runs In the
first Inning. In the next the rnln in
terfered with tjip Crescents' handling
of tlio ball 'I'liul 'IhVillnt! from 'the cnpl
tnl nt the ttrlo's .Tcrferson division suc

present from his majesty,, the storm
It was -worse than n shame, nfter our
"Pots" Journeying" to" Susquehanna and
a victory In sight, to bo-prevented from
finishing the ruuio. Hotter luel: Is
hoped for next time, as Susquehanna,
looks like "easy money."
O'Garrn. formerly of this city, pitched
against Curbondnlc, He showed much
of his old-time Cleverness. " The Sus
quehanna people have won the ever
lasting respect and admiration of the
c'rosiinntM fm1 their pnortsmnnllke
methods during the ball pa me and their
kind hospltullly afterwards. Nothing
was too good for the Carbondulo boys,
and It Is hoped that another opportun
ity to finish the contest for base ball
supremacy may present Itself soon.
The names of the players and those
who accompanied them are as follows:
"Walter Loftus, Owen McAndrew, P.
Kclleher, .lames Mctlale, James Gul

Hull. John Harte, P. F. Fox, Clarence

Cycle Men's Scorching Game.
If anyone should Inquire, yon can say
that the Curbondnlc Cycle members are
some "shucks" as ball .players. For
proof, first read the score of the game,
on Saturday and then ask the Ontario
and Western firemen, clerks and "Rail
road Jack," alias "Policeman Jack,"
the mascot, about It.
The "It" happened on Saturday after
noon on historic Duffy's field, when the
Cycle club made a scorching run and
when It was over the score was 12-3.
The firemen thought they were switch
Ins cars and that's how the ".I" came
on the scorer's card.
The name was a warm one, and the
crowd had much to make rinlse about,
oven though "Railroad Jack" was down
'ir. the mouth and refused to eat a yard
of sod for Tom Diiffy.
Smith and Duggau wore the Cycle
men's crack battery, and Drum and
Robinson stood for the compliments of
the railroad men for not winning. After
the game. Rates, bought' the soda water
for tho.erawd. He was celebrating over
his luffc: bo 'made a three-base hit.
Smith, Smith of the mighty arm and
lightning speed, pitched a splendid
game, and struck out so many men that
the other players had no work to do.

SOCIAL CLUB DISBANDS.
Tho Centennial Club Vacates Booms
for the Summer Months.
The Centennial Social club, which
was made up of well known young men
and conducted several of the smartest
socials In Carbondulo the past season,
The quarters which were In the Lead
er building were vacated on Saturday.
Tho furnishings were stored uwuy un
til the fall, when an effort will be made
to reorganize tho club.
The strike wits prlmnrlly responsible
for the dlsbandmcut of this successful
organization. Most of the members
were affected from different sources
when the miners ceased work, and the
club became so depleted through mem
bers leaving town that tho club censed
to be self-supporting. The few who re
mained regretfully decided to disband.
The club was organized by a few so
cial spirits during the days of Carbon
dale's semi-centennial festivities last
September, and took Its name from that
AT ST. ROSE CHURCH
Beautifully Improssivo Ceremoniea
Mark One of the Most Significant
Events in Sodality's History Ser
mon by Rev. P. J. Boland of Scran
ton. One of the most significant events In
the history of the Ulessed Virgin Mary's
Sodality of St. Rose church took place
last night when 230 candidates were re
ceived Into full membership with the
beautifully Impressive ceremonies that
mark a sodality reception.
Just prior to the services the sodality
members and the candidates marched
In u procession from the church base
ment to the places assigned them in the
beautiful edifice. The remainder of the
pews were occupied by the congrega
tion which crowded the unreserved
Very Rev. T. F. Coffey, V. O., pastor
of St. Rose, conducted tlie ceremonies.
While the candidates were receiving
the blue ribbon, the livery of the con
fraternity, the sodality, with Miss Alice
Uridgett at tlie organ, sang a number
The altar of the Blessed Virgin had
been converted into a beautiful shrine,
and was radiant with flowers, glowing
sanctuary lamps and blazing tapers.
The sermon was delivered by Rev. P.
J. Roland, assistant priest at St. John's
church, South Scranton. It was an
eloquent discourse, that, prayerfully
urged the sodalists' devotion to the
Blessed Virgin Mary, their patron and
"The 'reception was highly gratifying
to the pastor, Very Rev. T. F. Coffey,
and thu assistant priests of St. Hose,
for the number received, 230, was as
largo as admitted ut any one time since
the sodality was organized, and the
largest in a number of years. Tlie
fruit of the labors of the three priests
and the effects of the recent mission
were happily manifested.
The out-of-town priests who were
present in the sanctuary were: Rev.
John J. GrKIln, 'ScrnntDn, chancellor of
the diocese; Rev. M. K. I.oftus, Green
Ridge; Rev. J. W. Holmes, North

ALDERMAN MORRISON LOW.
Ho Is Hardly Expected to Survive
Alderman William Morrison, who
has been a victim of grip for three
weeks, pneumonia developing in tho
meantime, is in a'v dying condition.
I.nte last night it was announced by
Dr. William Morrison that his father's
condition was so low It was feared he
could not recover; It was oven doubtful
If he could survive more than a day,
perhaps not through tho night.
The change that Indicated that dis
solution was approaching, came at noon
yt-sterdny. The temperature arose des
pite repeated applications of Ice packs
by Dr. Morrison, himself, who has
worked over his father with the heroic
devotion of a son for the past week.
The pulsations Increased so that they
could not be counted and the respira
tion went up to seventy. Rvery heroic
remedy known to science has been em
ployed by Dr. Morrison; oxygen, In
jections of salt solutions and the most
powerful heart stimulants, but to no
avail; the pneumonia has increased un
til there Is no hope of a rally.
This will be extremely depressing
news for the legion of friends of tho
patient, who Is one of tho most promin
ent citizens of Curbondnle, who were
.filled with tho hope of his recovery.

serious charges made by Mrs. Joseph
Heap, of Park street, who alleges ho

Bonnetti's arrest, which took place
early last evening, was somewhat sen

made his way into the house Mrs. Heap
engaged him In conversation until her
niece could telephone to Constable
Moran, who has had a warrant for

night. On that night, according to Mrs.
Heap, or shortly after midnight, Bon
netti broke Into her residence, or at
least attempted to enter the house. He

driven off by Mrs. Heap and her niece.
The next day a warrant was sworn out

ished. He has a wife and six children,
with whom he lived in the Italian set

It Is earnestly hoped that the members
of the High School Alumni association
will bear in mind that there will be ii
meeting in the central school building to
morrow evening, commencing at 7.30, and
arrange their time so as to be present.
It Is tho sentiment of a number to have

attendance of the members will be necessary.

Connolly & Wallace
Scranton's Shopping Center
During the months of July and August Connolly
& Wallace will follow the custom established by
them two years ago, and will close their store at
noon on Saturdays.
WILL YOU share with us the privilege of in
augurating in Scranton shorter hours for
business? During the hot months of July t
k. and August shopping in the morning will
help very much. Will you bear this in mind?
Besides, the store service is better then. The
most willing hands become tired by the end
of the week, the clearest heads grow heavy.
It is, then, not what salespeople would like
to do do, but what they can do.
If a Saturday half holiday (which isi'F
tually a full day, from 12 noon to 9.30 p.
m., our usual business hours on Saturday),
of rest and recreation will bring our peopW
back on Monday morning to the store fresher
and stronger, we shall be fully repaid for the
day of business we give up each week.
We have closed in this manner now for
two years, and so far we have heard no crit
icism of the move, plenty of endorsement.
Our effort to bring about a shorter work
ing week during the hot months for the thous
ands of people employed in stores, must soon
bear fruit. Other stores are beginning to
fall in line and it is only a question of time
before it will be general. It means so little
to the women who shop. , It means so much,
so very much to those who work.
The women of Scranton can dp much by
helping the earlier closing movement. It
now depends on them. The merchants are
willing. All you have to do is to stop shop
ping at 12 o'clock noon on Saturday. Is this
a hardship? Would not a little thoughtful
ness in planning your day's work accomplish
it? And is it not worth while?
Think what it means in the way of sim
ple pleasure to the women and men who
serve you and supply your needs in the
thousand and one calls you make on them.
In the simple matter of every-day living,just
consider what this small act of thoughtful
consideration from you means. At home at
noon on Saturday. A whole day in which
to freshen themselves, to throw off the cares
of the day, to prepare in leisure for any little
festivity they may have on hand.
You, who have all your time at your own
disposal, can hardly realize all that this half
holiday means. But try to imagine yourself
in their place. Picture yourself as going
through their routine for one day. Then you
will know. Cannot we instantly bring about
a general early closing movement by all
stores? What a fine thing it would be if
every store were actually deserted of shop
pers at the magic hour of 12 noon on Satur
days during July and August.
Some customers, conversing in the store a few days ago
on the Saturday half-holiday subject, remarked that "Con
nolly & Wallace lead and the others follow."
It matters little who leads in the early closing, the big
thing Is that a store can close nowadays at noon on Saturday
and lose none of its business.
' We are glad that some other stores have decided to close,
