He Is Charged with Bunning nn Opium Den Tray Full of Para phernalia Confiscated. Patrolman Huntington and Mounted Officer Charles Perry yesterday after noon raided the lesldcnec of one Soo Hong, at the corner of Linden street and Raymond court, arrestqd the pro prietor and confiscated 11 complete set of the paraphernalia, appertaining to an opium "Joint" Many complaints have recently been received by Superintendent of Police L. B. Day, that Soo Hong was conducting an opium smoking establishment, and that this was frequented not only by other Chinese, but also by a number of whites. The majority of these, it was claimed, were very young men and ir responsible boys. When the patrolmen arihed at the place yesterday they found two young ooys theie. As neither of them was smolslng. they were allowed to go free. The place was searched, and an opium outfit being discovered, Hong was tak en to the central station, together with the tray containing his outfit. The lat ter consists of a heavy, wicked looking pipe, a small transparent Jar contain ing opium, a number of pellets, and several peculiar looking little metal vials, shaped moic or less like ink wells. Hong was In agony all afternoon, at being separated from his opium, to the smoking of which he is himself particu larly addicted. He is a malevojent looking Oriental, and :ih he tossed about his cell, his eyes had a positively wol fish glare to them. "Jlp slcka, me slcka," he groaned cunstiintlv. "I wanta 111 pill. Jus' one 111' pill." He ui lu, irivcn a hearing this morning. .aore College, Penna. Swarthraove, This Institution was founded by the Society of Friends, and has always been conducted with 11 view to promot ing the principles for which that re ligious body stands. Its work, how ever, is by no means secturlan but is intended to promote, in the highest de gree, that sense of Individual responsi bility which makes for true manhood or womanhood. Having no desire to make it anything but 11 "Small Col lege," Its management has been able to maintain that Intimacy of contact between professor and student which is rarely possible in a great university and which is probably the greatest force lu any institution tending to the development of character. Tho situa tion of the college helps in the name direction, Beautifully located, sur rounded by two hundred acres of luwn and grove, It overlooks a superb stretch of country extending away to the Dela ware, while clustered about tho camp us Is the village, occupied largely by families connected In ono way or un olhcr with the Interests of the college, nnd by the elevation of Its moral tone presenting a strong c-ontruht to vho communities in which emuc less 'n- voroci institutions nro placed. Still an other assistance in the lniilnteimnce of healthy college llfo Is tho natural grouping of young inoii and women. under the same roof, maintaining ns nearly as possible the conditions which obtain in a cultivated home, and free from the unnatural elements, which so frequently make collego llfo destine, tlvo of the finer traits of character, Each of the four cnurs.es of study of fered by the collego provides a liberal range of electlves, nnd whether ono enters classics, letters, science or en gineering, he cannot receive tho Bwarthniore diploma without having achieved a liberal educutlou. Then there Is Intelligent physical training. Tho college has not only mtiintulned uu excellent record in competitive ath letics, but has glvcp careful study to the problem of building up, In the best possible manner, the bodily vigor of each Individual student, This- has given Swurthmoro a remarkable health record, and, what .Is still better, has in frequent Instances rescued from dan ger young men and women about whose future health and strength there wus just cause for concern. There may bo better places for young people who merely want the fame of "going through" college.

Kaufman, the Now York members and mnnagers of the company, arrived In Duryea this morning and will avwird the contract for the election of the building wllhln n few days. The only new development In tho strike situation here Is the rcKlndllng of (he fires at the Babylon colliery of the Temple Iron comimny at Duryea. Since the opening of the strike there has been no attempt made to r.ilnc steam and oper ate (lie pumps at this colliery, but a few days ago a load of non-union men wns brought to the place and tho pumps were slatted today. Mrs. Mary Comey. wife of John Comey, died nl the PIttston hospital last night about n."0 o'clock. Deceased was "i years of n,,-e and was a duughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patilek AleGlynn, of Sugar Notch. The remains were taken to tho home of The Fiohtino Blood Lucu Baker Jerome, in Success. 1" T WAS A circular grass-covered plot on the outer edge of the cemetery, and the low stone wall surrounding It was defaced and sunken in many places. An oblong tablet, supporting two monumental urns, rested in the center, and it wns heaped high with wreaths and blossoms, tho tribute of a nation to its honored dead. The in-s-orlptlon bore the name of one of the most famous generals of the civil war, but LurlndH Rundall, sitting idly on tup of the rough coping, surveyed the memorial stone with gloomy eyes. At that moment she was wondering, as she had wondered many times before Pi her Iwcnty-flvo years, If life were all that sin- had been led to believe that idio would .Ind It. In spite of her fixed belief In the general correctness of the scheme of the unlver.se. she could not refrain from thinking that there were some things that she would have ar ranged differently. That very morning, in a despondent mood, she had con fronted her cares and troubles, drawn up before her In formidable array, and, after a severe struggle with her com mon sense, had finally owned herself defeated. Usually, Luclnda was a per son on whom the perplexities of life sat lightly; but about every six weeks, as she put it, she was abllged to think, and the result was always disastrous. It was in tills mood that, sitting there, the fresh, strong wind, straight from the ocean, whipping loose strands of her blink hair from their fastenings, and buffeting her slight figure like a live thing, she withdrew her gaze from the wave-washed horizon, nnd looked again at the stone. "Killed, while gallantly loading a for lorn charge." she said, aloud. "That I can understand. The heroism of the moment, the wild charge in the glory and blaze of battle; sudden, swift ex tinction, exulting in the face of death, that is a glorious way to die; but to wear out one's life In tho tragedy of the commonplace, one's worst foe oneself, that is dying by Inches; it is worse It Is a living death." Her eyes suddenly widened as she perceived u figure on the other side of the mound silhouetted against the sky. ft was that of an old man, bent and tdiruukeu with age, but Luclnda no ticed the square set of tho shoulders, the attempt nt currying them well set buck, and u general air of alert brisk ness, which, to her observant eyes, pro claimed him an old ox-soldler. Ho climbed the wall stiffly, his eyes fixed upon the sunken grave, with the flow ers piled high above It, and the flutter ing flags at either end. Wheeling sharp ly, ns he reached the spot, ho stood erect, and gave a smart military sa lute, with a precision evidently born of long training; then, stooping, he placed on the grave a small bunch of dande lions that he rallied. Thou hu turned to Luclnda, smiling cordially. I reckon you think this kind of slrnuge," he said, speaking with a Western accent, and laying one hand tenderly un the stone, "but I've saluted tho general every Memorial Day for twenty years, Mhs; I've followed him In ninny ft battle, and I don't forget: and somehow I can't think that tho general does, either." His shining eyes looked across the tablet at tho girl. "Muybe ho did you a kindness, too, Miss','" ho asked, sympathetically, "He did many n one In his day, I'll he hound." The girl Dashed a pleased look at hjm. "General Eastwood was my uncle," she said, simply, The old soldier's face beamed. "Vour uncle, Miss?" ho said, earn estly, "Well, I've wondered many a day If I should ever bo lucky enough to run across any o the general's kin; hut my time Is getting so short now I hut I'd about given up hoping," Ho reached his hand Impulsively across the grave to (ho girl. She took It, smilingly In comprehen sion. "I uni always glad to meet anyone who served under my uncle," she suld, wlnnlugly. "I huvo often heard my mother tell how much lie thought of his men." "That's rlglil, loo," said the soldier, the deceased's brother, Patrltk McrJlynn, on Chnpell street, .from whence the fu neral wilt be held, Mlsn Theresa Vox, of Scranton, Is th Ruost of her cousin, Miss Pace, of Se bastnpol, n t'iltston Biiburb. One of tho worst rases of cruelty tn dumb animals that has been reported In litis locality for somo tlmn wns perpe trated on Parsonage street somo time during Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

Palling to pcrsimdo the man tn quit nnd effigies being Ineffective, some one, evidently strikers or their sym pathizers, decided to get revenge out of the dog.

"Why, Miss, the day we made that charge at it was hotter than I1la7.es, and the general was in the thick of it, and always at the front, Miss, al ways at the front." He shook a bony forefinger, warnlngly "Don't you for get that. The bullets were flying like hail, und the general was sitting on his horse like an Iron man, and we were plunging after him, when Dick Fallon's horse was shot under him, and he tumbled on the ground right alongside of the general. Dick expected it to be the last of him, for the cavalry was sweeping solid over the field. Was it? No, indeed! The general Just swooped down on him sideways, and lifted him across his saddle bow, and led the charge just the same. Dick never for got that. I've heard him tell it over and over, and not one of those who saw it ever forgot it, either. Oh, I tell you, Miss," the old man chuckled, car ried out of himself by the memory of brave war days, and becoming loqua cious in praise of his hero "there never was anything could daunt the old gen eral. He had the, real blood in him the fighting blood, we called It. Noth ing ever beat It yet." He turned to the girl, , his eyes luminous with feeling, nnd his white hair blowing in the wind. Her gaze was fastened on the vanish ing line of smoke from an ocean steam er, and the old soldier looked disap pointed. "I think." Luclnda said, slowly, her hands unconsciously destroying the daisies that she held, "that there arc, perhaps, some things which, if the gen eral had had them to endure, might have conquered even the fighting blood." "Don't you believe it, Miss," began the old soldier, stoutly, but a glance at her downcast face chocked him, "Yes, Miss?" he said, interrogatively. "Yes, I do," she said, more firmly. "There are forms of battle of which the general had no conception. It Is so different with a man! His life was one of action, vivid, stirring action, and each act was applauded by a nation. He stood high In the estimation of men. Ho had wealth, power and fame. Did he ever know" she went on, stormlly "what It means simply to exist, to spend one's llfo In waiting, till your youth und strength and hope are gone? Did he over know the humiliating sen sation of failure? Did he ever mean well, and try hard, and have It all end in defeat? No! he never knew these things. Even his courage might have given way before such overwhelming odds as these." The soldier's stiff features melted Into sympathetic lines at the girl's out burst, but his faith in his heroe was not to be shaken. "No, .Miss," he said, patiently. "Beg ging your pardon, for I can see that you must have had a hard battle your self, to talk like this, but even nil you soy wouldn't have niado the general give In," His eyes met hers. "It's harder for a woman," ho Bald, gently, Tho girl's eyes filled at tho words, but sho kept her head dellantly high, "I have lost nil that I cared for In the world," s-hn said, steadily, "and there's only lelt me a big, empty, starving heart, that gnaws nt me night and day." She looked nt the brave old face wlsttully. "Do you think that tho general 'could havo borne that?" she asked, Tho old soldier felt 11 sudden queer tightening of his throat, He looked at tho girlish llgure In Its round bluo Barge, then hastily rose, striking his stick (Irmly into the gravel path. All thn old murtlal fire and vigor were In his bearing as he stood In front of her, JIo felt Intuitively that It was a case where action of somo kind was needed, "The general would never have given up, Miss," he almost shouted, all tho 111010 sturdily because conscious of an unwonted tremor in his tones, which he wantc-jl to conceal, "Never! There wasn't anything that ho couldn't huve borne, and anyone with lighting blood In his veins ought to fee'l that way, too. Anyone belonging to tho general Is Just bound to stand by his colors!" The girl looked up (iiicklyyher lips parted, and her face was suffused with uu inward glow, He met her look directly.

The words stirred the gill's senses, like a call to arms. She sprang quickly to her feet, sweeping her long skirts aside, and drawing her little figure to its full height. "You're right," she said, abruptly. "The lighting blood does not give in. What Is your name'.' 'Macallon?' Now, Mr. Macallon, we're ready for the ene my. Hurrah for the banner of the fighting blood!" She smiled brightly at the old man.who Instantly divining her changed mood, and catching the "spirit of excitement, swung involuntarily around. Together they saluted tho grave, the old and the young eyes flashing In unison. The clear note of a departing bugle lent color and reality to the scene. The old man's voice iuu vered on the all.
