SERMON BY PRESIDING ELDER
AUSTIN QRIFPIN, D. D.
Jesus Words Richly Freighted with
Comfort for a Sorrowing, Unhappy
World Went to Prepare a Place
for Redeemed Mankind Even the
Aborigines Had Their Life of
Peace and Happiness Beyond the
Grave What the Words of the Re
Itev. Austin Griffin, D. U., pre
siding elder of the Wyoming district,
preached tin interesting sermon at the
Kim Park M. E. church last evcnhiR.
Ho took Ills text from John 11:2: "In
my Father's house are many mansions:
If it were not so, I would have toid you.
I go to prepare a place for you." He
said In part:
"Jesus, In his revelations to man, has
given humnnlty a stronger hold on
those visions of the future, which have
ever been cherished. His words wore
richly freighted with comfort for a sor
rowing, unhappy wor.ld. Arid ills silence
is even as eloquent. I Want to tnke
up a few of the things tonight, which
Jesus Christ did not say.
"The night of the last supper, after
Judas had retired to complete his con
tract for the betrayal of the Savior,
the Lord rose from the table and his
faithful comrades rend in his eyes,
something which he had never said to
them. Thoee apostles did not all un
derstand Jesus, but they all loved
"Even the doubting Thomas and ma
terialistic Philip loved Him. Jesus did
not consider his kingdom complete and
his coronation complete until he had
the presence of His redeemed sons and
daughters. That's why Ho said: 'I go
to prepare a place for you.'
THE LIFE BEYOND.
"Men have always been desirous of
a future life, of an existence of peace
and harmony, beyond this life. Even
among the pagans you will llnd this
true. Even the aborigines of this land
had their ideal of the Great Spirit lend
ing good shades to the happy hunting
ground. Man is ever l caching out for
an unattainable g'ood. Jesus loved his
disciples too well. He loved truth, of
which He was the very embodiment,
too well to deceive those men, and If
there was no future existence he would
have told them not to trust to those
Innate, heart cravings for a better life.
"At the first autumnl chills, flocks of
birds turn their night from the North
land to the South land. God has given
them an Instinct which impels them to
seek a haven of rest. Will he do bet
ter for them than for his redeemed
sons and daughters. Would he give
them a land, and have none for the
children saved, by his own life blood.
But Jesus meant to say that ono can
trust the intense craving of the heart,
and his disciples read It In his eyes.
"We read ubout King David, and his
affliction. We find him dressed in suck
cloth, praying for the life of his clilld,
the idol of his heurt, when the lattcr's
life was rapidly fading away. He
prayed to God to save his eon, aiid his
servants came in and announced the
boy was dead.
"David immediately rose, refreshed
himself and dressed in other rainment.
To his wondering servants he said 'The
boy Is dead. He cannot come to me,
but I shall go to him.' Thus beloved,
these spiritual Intimations, these crav
ings "for departed friends, are to be
fully realized In the future.

DEATH OF JAMES R. BURNETT.
Eminent Newspaper Man and Mem
ber of the Bar.
James IX. Burnett, assistant editor
of the Si-runtou Truth nnd a mem
ber of the Lackawanna bar, died lust
evening at C.20 o'clock, In the thirty
eighth year of his age.
Mr. Burnett had been confined to his
home, on Rlchmont avenue, for many
months by an illness from which he at
ono time apparently rallied, but which,
however, eventuated in his death.
There were few newspaper men in this
part of the state better known than
James R. Uurnett. Since his child
hood, when, as a boy, he entered tho
office of the Carbondale Advance, to
learn the printer's trade, his cureer
has been Identified with journalism. He
became local editor of that paper, and,
in 1SS3, after the establishment of tho
Scrunton Truth, he came to this city
and accepted a position on its local
staff. Later he was city editor of the
Scranton Republican and subsequently
filled a similar position on The Tribune.
He afterwards was city editor of the
Wllkcs-Barrc Leader, and upon re
turning to this city he resumed his re
lations with the Scranton Truth and
became special staff correspondent for
thnt paper at Harrisburg, during tho
session of the state legislature. He
studied law in the office of Judge New
comb, and, on motion of his preceptor,
was admitted to practice In 1S!)7. Re
turning to Journalism better fitted than
ever for his life work, he became tele
graph editor for the Truth, and sub
sequently he was assistant to Mr. Bar
rett on the editorial department o that
paper, which position he filled at tho
time of his last Illness.
Mr. Burnett had a clear and vigorous
newspaper stylo. Possessed of Imagin
ation and humor, his writings had a
rare and unique charm. As a descrip
tive writer, he had few equals, and he
wrote an easy and rapid style of
marked Individuality. He was candid
in his opinions, and never simulated a
sentiment which he did not possess.
This gave reliability to all that he
wrote, and won for him the truest of
friends, who remained sincere to him
to the last.
Ho is survived by three.sistors: Ml-s
Nellie Burnett, teacher of the public
schools of Wyoming, Luzerne county;
Miss Bessie Burnett, teacher In No. 0
school, this city, and Miss Julia Bur
nett, of Scranton.
The funeral will take place at 0.30
cjclock Wednesday morning. A sol
emn high mass ot requiem will be
sung in St. Paul's church, Green Itidge,
Interment will be made in the Cathe
Veterans Will Meet Again.
Tho thlrty-slNth annual reunion of tho
survivors of the Ono Hundred and Forty
third regiment, Pennsylvania volunteers,
and their fi lends, will bo held at Wyo
ming, Pa., at Monument park, on Sep
tember 10, 100:'. The nnnual address will
bo delivered by Milton W. Lowry, esq.,

HAD THE BEST CAMP OF THE
Quartermaster F. M. Vnndllng Gets
a Handsome Set of Horeo Trap
pings, Presented by Major Ooneral
Miller as a Prize to tho Regiment
Having tho Best Sot Up Camp at
Gettysburg Award Is Made by
Colonel Richardson of Governor
Word has been received in this city
that Colonel Rlrhnrdson, of Governor
W. A. Stone's staff, had decided that
the Thirteenth regiment is entitled to
the pnlm for having the best set up
camp nt Gettysburg.
General Miller offered a handsome set
of horse trappings to tho qunrter
master ot the regiment which had tho
bset record for a well set up, clean
and properly kept camp, nnd Cnptnln
Frank M. Vnndllng will therefore re
ceive tho nrlze.
Colonel Richardson carefully exam
ined each of the division camps, and
several times expressed himself as very
favorably Impressed with the appear
ance of the Scranton regiment's quar
ters. The contest could not be decided,
however, until after each regiment had
broken camp. A number of points
were allotcd the quartermaster whose
regiment loft tho encampment with tho
most expedition, accompanied by the
least flurry and confusion, nnd neces
sarily this portion of tho general aver
ago had to be accounted for before any
decision could be given.
The prize for the best brigade head
quarters was also taken by 'the Third
brigade. Captain Vnndllng worked like
a beaver with his advance detail, and
as a result the camp presented a fine
appearance when the regiment arrived.
He also had to do more than a little
work, both during and at the break of
the encampment. It is therefore a
source of gratification, not only to him
but to the-rmtlre regiment, to see Gen
eral Miller's prize go to tho Thirteenth.
TO SHOOT AT STATE RANGE.
Thirteenth's Rifle Team Was Picked
Lieutenant Lewis B. Carter, the
Thirteenth regiment's Inspector of rifle

perienced marksmen, who have proved
their ability, and Musician Moore last
year,had the high score of the brigade.
Private Burns was formerly a captain
in the Ninth regiment, and as a mem
ber of the regimental team was con
sidered one of Its best men. Private

EFFECTS OF THE STORM.

damage was trifling.
