Festivals and Other Notes.
Rally Day was fittingly observed nt
the Washburn Street Presbyterian
Church yesterday with Mblo school ex
ercises at noon, and an address nt the
Evening service by Hcv. James A.Wor
tlen, I). D., L.L.. 1)., superintendent of
mission work of the 1'rcsbyterlnn
The edifice was tastefully decorated
with autumn leaves and harvest husk
lugs, unil the Interior presented nn In
viting appearance, such as can only bo
provided at harvest time. The pro
gramme of rally day service, as pre
pared by the Board of Publication, whs
carried out at noon In its entirety, with
orchestral accompaniment, und a stir
ring address by Rev. W. I. Steuns, a
A large assemblage greeted Dr. Wor
tlcn at the evening service. He briefly
referred to the notable work being car
ried on throughout the states by the
1'resbyterlnn bo.ird of missions, and
said the Lord has prospered the cause
beyond what could bo reasonable ex
pected. "The establishment of mission Sab
bath schools," he said, "Is the hope of
our church and country In carrying on
Cod's work among the young." ln
Ftcad of dwelling at length on the sub
ject of mlsslnnrry work, Dr. Worden
preached a very forceful sermon on the
text. "P.rlng Him Fiito Me;" from the
ninth chapter of Luke, and the forty
first verse. He spoke, In part, as fol
lows: "The reason that led me to bring this
message to you Is due to the fact that
there Is more Interest In evangelical
work in the church today than there
has been In many years. It Is finding a
ready 1 espouse In the hearts of pas
tors and people. It Is appropriate and
profitable to consider this command of
Christ. It Is a message for parents
llrst. of all.
"It Is not only your duty to provide
fond, clothing and education for your
children, but a1o to lead them to
Jesus. If they go out of the Sunday
hi'hool and church non-Chrlstlnns they
never will become alllllated with Hod.
There must be a lonsclous, vital one
luss with the Son of God,
"Hut we cannot lead the yotmg to
Christ while we ourselves are lending
worldly lives. The mistake made in
the homo is In not binding ourselves
lo Christ, and our neglect of prayer, for
a worldly parent who neglects family j
prayer has no influence In leading
children to Christ.
"First bring youi solves to Christ,
open your hearts to receive the Holy

Pittsburg. No other stora carries such a large stock, or can
show such a complete assortment, Not a handful or an odd
piece or two of new weaves and novelties, but all the good
things Ihe home and foreign looms have to offer for the season,
and always at prices a little less than at other stores, where the
assortment will not compare wi'h ours.

Thirteen members were received Into
the membership of tho Green RIdgo Pres
byterian church at the morning service
yesterday, nine by letter and four on pro
fession of fuitli.
Twice during the past forty-eight
hours our firemen have responded to
alarms from Box 21, at the corners.
The llrst fire occurred at an early hour
on Saturday morning, when flames
were discovered coming from the barn
on Ambrose slieet, owned by Mrs. P.
F. Murphy and occupied by Domlnlek
O'Boyle. The contents of the barn were
partially destroyed. Tho three horses
were gotten out after much difficulty,
little the worse for their experience. A
coach and other wagons were destroyed.
The loss was about $2,000, with $1,300
insurance on barn and contents. The
Neptunes, Independent!) and John B.
Smith companies were on hand. - Tho
other fire occurred yesterday morning
about 5 o'clock and was a barn on
Apple street, owned by John Fnrrell.
Its proximity to the rear of the Pres
byterian church caused the firemen to
fear they hail a big conflagration on
their hands, but fortunately it soon
yielded to several streams that were
soon playing on It and tho recent rains
hud so soaked the surouudlng build
ings that It did not spread beyond its
walls. The damage done possibly
amounted to $200. It had not been oc
cupied for several months past, and no
explanation of how the fire started has
been advanced. The Neptunes and In
dependents were the only companies
responding. Tho lire nlarm system, In
so far as It affects the Neptune com
pany rooms, might as well have never
been ordered by the councilmen. It Is
entirely useless and has been so for
several weeks, no alarms turned In
reaching there at all, the permanent
men being aroused by runners or
awakened by tho hand-blown gong, if
it happens to blow.

D. and H. Tracks.
About thirty-five feet of the retaining
wall overhanging the Delaware and
Hudson tracks, between the Lacka
wanna avenue bridge nnd the Delawaie.
Lackawanna and Western railroad
bridge, gave way at 1 o'clock yester
day afternoon, and tons of rock and dirt
fell on the north bound track below, a
distance of fifteen or twenty feet.
The heavy rains of the past few days,
it Is claimed, are responsible for the
undermining of the wall, which was
built on top of a slanting rock founda
tion. Rnadmaster M. J. Nugent soon
had a force of men at work with a
steam derrick, and by 10 o'clock last
night the track was cleared. Mean

A cave-in also occurred on the Dela
ware and Hudson railroad at 7 o'clock
last evening, about a mile south of

a settling in the Powderly No. 1 mine.
The south bound tracks dropped about
S Inches. Five carloads of ashes were
required to All the gap.
