THE SCUANTON TKIBUNE-FHipiur, NOVEiUBJBtt 28, 1902.
The News of
Tho Religious Spirit Was Manifested
in nn Outpouring That Thronged
the Beretm Baptist Church fit tho
Union Services Sermon by Rev.
Charles Lee Well-Attendod Ser
vices nt Trinity The Social Ob
servance of the Day.
If the spirit of Thanksgiving day was
manifested In the utten'dnnce at tho re
ligious services comntehiorntlvo of Hie
occasion, then the spirit of the day had
ii fuller possession of the people than
In recent years, for there was an out
. pouring that tilled tho Horean Uaptlst
church, where tho union service was
held, making the use or chairs neces
sary to accommodate the excess of the
church's seating capacity. Tho largo
congregation showed nn Interest and
hearty spirit that Indicated the appre
ciation of tho feeling of the day.
Another happy evidence of the spirit
of Thanksgiving day was the generous
response made to the earnest plea of
How Dr. Whulen for tho offering for
Kmcrgency hospital. While It was not
definitely known last night how much
was realized, yet there were assurances
Hint there was no disappointment In
' the hope of the collection coming eioso
, to $100. This spirit or charity associ
ated with Thanksgiving day is a happy
At Trinity church a large congrega
tion joined in fervent thanksgiving. An
eloquent sermon wart delivered by Rev.
Dr. Sawyer, of Montclnir, X. J., father
of the rector, Uev. It. A. Sawyer.
i At St. Paul's Lutheran church there
iww a Thanksgiving service, led by the
pastor, Kev. Frederick Ehlnger.
' The town during the day bad a holi
day air, despite the circumstance that
tho mines and railroad shipping were
active. All places of business were
closed and there were so many on the
street during the afternoon that one
was impressed that scarcely any one
was at work.
The production of "Hupert of Hent
zau," at the Grand, was enjoyed by two
large audiences, matinee and night.
The Bon-Ton Social club entertained
several hundred young folks at a mati
nee and evening dance in . t lie Hurke'
Tho Union Service.
As indicated, the union service at the
' Serean Baptist church, in which the
roongregations of that church, the First
Presbyterian and Flr.st Methodist
churches joined, was marked by nn ex
ceptionally huge attendance. Kev. A,
l?. Chaffee, pastor of tho Methodist
church, presided. Kev. Dr. YVlmlon,
Kev. J. F. Warner, Uev. W. '13. Grow,
Rev. Mr. Wood mitt Hev. Carles Lee
each had a 'Place in the programme.
Ilev. J. F. Warner made the invoca
tion; Kev. Mr. Wo.od read President
Uooseveit's proclamation: Rev. W. 15.
Grow offered prayer; Rev. Dr. Wlialen
made an earnest plea for aid for Kmer
gency hospital, and Rev. A. F. Chaffee
Invoked the blessing.
There was a specially prepared musi
cal programme. The chief numbers
were the anthem by the choir, Gounod's
"Praise Ye the Father;" Mrs. George
F. Mills' splendid solo, "The Heavenly
Song," and the duet by Mrs. II. J.
Whalen and Hugh Williams, "Love
Divine," which was rendered with true
feeling. The music was under the di
rection of Chorister Hugh Williams, ot
the Berean church. Miss Grace Hall
The thoughtful, eloquent sermon by
Rev. 'Charles Lee was based on the
text, "In everything give thanks; for
this is the will of God in Christ Jesus,
concerning you," 1 Thess., 5: IS.
Rev. Mr. Lee in his preface said that
the president of our nation urges the
citizens to render a tribute of adoration
to the Giver of every good and perfect
gift. But stronger than the voice of
conscience or tho chief executive or the
land is the command of the Lord. It Is
His will that wo be grateful in every
thing. It is a divine characteristic to
acknowledge things as they are, and so
God, loving justice and nobility, bids
us ba gratetul. Measured in Itseir,
what we have received Is marvelous.
Ganged by what God has given otheis,
it Is still more wonderful. The thought
of America's comparatively greater
mercies impressed Washington in his
proclamation more than a century ago.
President Roosevelt, reviewing the year
of cur history, asserts, and we can all
confirm the words: "We have had, cm
the whole, more to be thankful for than
bas fallen to the lot or any other peo
ple." America stands btside Israel on
that upland of Providence, "Ho huth
not dealt so with any nation." Our uu
worthlness of tho least of all these
mercies Is a crowning emphasis of the
propriety of gratitude.
Rev. Mr. Lee then went on to show
Cold Water Drinker Finds a Relief
in Postum Coffee.
-ft, Our American people, who aiu nerv
ous and overstrained, would never
tflrlnk coffee Jf they know liow well and
..lilear-headeilrUifcy would be without it.
"5, "When I was a littlo child," says
"JSUss M. D'Alt, of Topeka, Kansas, "I
".Commenced the drinking of coffee.
Naturally nervous, it made me uh tho
tfears went on, ii most miserable wretch

citement. I found, as I grew older, Unit
L would at times mugger like a drunken

"I recommend Postum to all my

Many people who have stopped drink-

-nerves, will find the puro food drink,
Postum, a beverage that when proper-
'ly made touches the spot, pleases eye
and pnlatn and fills the vacancy as'no
yuier yy." 'i"t
how llio United Stales has occasion for
thanksgiving Indeed, In nil history no
such nation has garnered such bounti
ful crops as have been given our land
this summer, The figures needful to
express the quantities arc Indeed In
comprehonslvc In their greatness. The
three cereals, corn, wheat and oats,
yield nearly live billions of bushels.
Comparing our country with other
nations, wo llnd that, though wet
tiro only one-twentieth of tho world's
people, wo tiro cultivating one-fourth
of the tilled land of the earth, nml
gather about om-tMinrter of tho agri
cultural products ot thi! globe. One
third of the earth's entire yield In min
ing operations Is In America.
Our virile ince has so developed won
derful skill of hand and brain till one
third of all the manufactured goods of
tho world aio rashloncd under the
Stars and Stripes. The first locomotive
to run in America had Its tilal trip nt
Honesdule, Just across the Moosles, less
than f-oventy-tlve years ago. Today wo
have more railroad mileage fhun all
lirtiropc, and our lines of steel would
belt the earth, at the equator, eight
Hut tills magnificent material endow
ment, observed Uev. Mr. Lee, Is of im
portance chiefly as It ministers to
human life, and that life develops noble
character. He then went on to point
out tho virtues wrought by the spirit
of God In this nation, leaving alone the
discussion of the enemies who nre as
saulting our nation now, ns well us
other times. He quoted Justice Brewer
of the Supreme court, who said that
"this republic has been among the fore
most nations to speak for peace and to
plead for the amelioration of tho hard
ships of war, so long us war shall last.
Wo have entered Into more arbitration
arrangements than any other nations."
Also the utterance of Secretary Hay,
of a year ago: "The briefest expres
sion of our rule conduct Is, perhaps,
the Monroe doctrine and the Golden
Rule." The conduct of tho United
States in the uprising in China was
pointed out as proof that the utterance
of Secretary Hay was not empty words
about the Golden Rule.
Ah to our gifts to Liberty In the Inst
four years, Rev. Mr. Lee pointed out
the establishment of self-government In
Porto Rico, the independence of Cuba,
the giving to the Filipinos a greater
measure of self-government than Is en
joyed by any other Oriental people, in
dependent or colonial. Another cause
of gratitude is the lino of presidents
our laud has produced.
In church history the year has been
one of blessing. The Protestant churches
have gained about 230,000 in net in
crease. Placing Greek and Roman
Catholic!? and Protestants together, we
have in the land about twenty-seven
millions of communicants in professed
ly Christian churches.
In conclusion. Rev. Mr. Lee touched
on the life of tho Individual, comment
ing that it was not hard, probably, on
this glad day to render thanks for our
joys and readily recognized blessings
or the past twelvemonth; and reminded
us MUt according to the Lord, Himself,
we llnd caiiFO of gratitude in the great
est trlaR "In everything, give thanks."
IN SEVERAL HOMES
The Caibondalians laid at Rest in
This City Yesterday: Conductor
Frank E. Morgan, Who Met Such
a Sad Fate on Delaware and Hud
son Road; James Carden. Pioneer

erals were those of Conductor Frank K.
Morgan, James Carden and Mrs. James
There was a sorrowing multitude at

gentle that when the time approached
for his friends to take their farewell of

tho lesldenco for the First Presbyterian
church were long delegations from the
Order of Railway Conductors, Brother
hood of Trainmen, the Red Men and
the ladles' auxiliaries, together with the
Companions of the Forest. Tho floral
pieces were magnificent and profuse
In number. Each organization contrib
uted an emblem. Altogether It was a
remarkable showing of respect and es
teem for a departed friend.
The services at the First Presbyterian
church were conducted by Rev. Charles
Lee, the pastor. The text or bis ser
mon was from Samuel, 20:3, which tells
of the nearness of death. The applica
tion was made to the sudden summons
of the deceased, and in conclusion, Mr.
Leu spoke tenderly of Mr, Morgan.
The quartette, Mrs. Frank 13. Burr,
Miss Carrie Lever, W. M. Clark, H. F.
C'larlt, sang a favorite selection of the
deceased, "Sometime, You'll Under

An Interesting Event in the Annals
of a Most Remarkable Pioneer
Fnmily A Thanksgiving Gather
ing Which Had Few Equals.
Mr. and Mrs. W. I Leonard, of 52
River street, did tho honors to tho Me
Comb family at their annual reunion
this year. The gathering was remark
able from the fact, that out of a dozen
members ot tho original stock, eleven
of them were present.
The McComb family consists of father
and mother, seven sons and three
daughters. They are all alive, well and
Last year the full complement assem
bled at a reunion, and It wns fondly
hoped that on this occasion there would
be a repetition tit the event, but one ot
the boys was obliged to forego the de
light of the occasion, owing to nn urg
ent business engagement at a distance
too far to be covered in time
The members of the original and un
broken family present were: Mr. and
Mrs. Hugh McComb, .and John Mo
Coriib, ofv2l Garfield avenue; Mr. James
McComb, or Philadelphia; Mr. David
McComb. or Buffalo, X. Y.: Mr. Ed
ward McComb, of Clementon, X. J.J
Mrs. Dr. E. J. Pierce (Miss Lizzie Mc
Comb), or Herkimer, X. Y.; Mrs. W. L.
Leonard (Miss Retta McComb), of
Carbondale; Mr. F. E. McComb, of
Seranton, and Mrs. C. L. Doty (Miss
Sarah McComb), of Xow York city.
The social features of the occasion
were brightened by the presence of
Airs. F. E. McComb and daughter Boa
trice, Mrs. Edward McComb and daugh
ter Mattle May, and Mr. W. L. Leon
ard. The hosts were alive to tho require
ments of the occasion, and they were
also prepared to sustain their well-established
reputation as entertainers.
Mrs. Leonard wns certainly in her cle
ment as hostess and gave' her guests a
most delightful menu. In addition to
the banquet there were many post
prandial talks by nearly every member
of the family.
Tho event was one which can be fully
appreciated by those who hove knowl
edge of a large family gathering, where
nil tire happy in eacli other's society
and where there are so many blessings
to be thankful for.
While to Mr. F. E. McComb a great
deal of praise was accorded, the event
was made interesting by lemnrks made
by Mr. James McComb and the others.
Colonel John McComb was conspicu
ous ns the grand carver of the Illustri
ous bird which ought to be the Ameri
can emblem of good will in all well
regulated families. If it Is not. As a
carver the colonel did the proper thing
at the proper time; and In addition he
was Inspired to give his pen a little
manipulation which resulted In the fol
lowing lines, which seem to be decided
COL. M'COMB'S IMPROMPTU LINES.
Some folks would cat but bavo no meat;
And some have meat but can not eat;
But wo McCombs, on any day,
Have appetites In active play.
For wo can eat with keenest zest,
And take our rations with the best;
Thanksgiving Day conies ov'ry morn!
And we admire the dinner horn.
Our silent prayer ascends each hour
To Him who lias Almighty power,
And wo attest when at the board
Our full reliance on the Lord.
Somo people meet but once a year,
And soread themselves to have good
But each of us feels thanks each day
For all delights that come our way.
Wo cat nt any tlmo or place.
And If we fall to utter grace
It is because wo feel content
To take the goods tho gods have seat.
So while wo sit in glad array
United for a holiday
Lot's show our hosts what wo tan do
To carve a fowl and eat it too.
And when we're done lot ns all say:
If thanks are duo on earth today
We'll thank the Leonards for this feast.
And hope they'll rlso without much yeast.
WALLOPED AT HAZLETON.
Indians Scalped by Tomahawks of
The only game which the Indians
played this season, at Hazleton, yes
torday, was terribly disastrous. They
ran up against a much stronger team
than tho Hazleton eleven of last year,
and were defeated by the score of 2C-0,
The game was evidently lllled with
strenuoslty, for the report sent to Car
bondale last night said thnt Beit Col

Thomas, another of the strong ones of
the Indians, was used roughly, sus

A PLEASANT SURPRISE
In Store for Those Who Doubt.
When you read that a sufferer ot
many years' standing hns been com
pletely restored to health by using
Smith's Cure-all, you nre Inclined to
doubt tite statement und, in fact, havo
no belief In it whatever. The reason
for this Is that so much is claimed for
the Cure-all It Is Impossible for nny
ono to believe it; if the advertiser con
fined his claims to the curing of one
disease, as do tho proprietors of Pyra
mid Pile Cure, renders would have
much more faith In published testi
monials. Those familiar with this great
remedy know that testimonials as to
Its merit may bo relied upon implicitly,
also that the cures brought about by
Its use aro littlo short of marvelous.
The genuineness ot tho testimonial hero
given is vouched for and Is but one of

Just as bad. Tho first box nearly cured

no trouble since. Pyramid Pile Curo
does all that it claims to do, mid I

A Good Production.
The production of "Rupert of Hent
zau" nt the Grand, yesterday afternoon
and evening, wns infinitely superior to
any holiday attraction in several
years, and ranked with the best play,
with a few exceptions, in Carbondale
In the same period.
Harry Leighton, in the dual role, is
such an earnest, forceful and polished
actor whom one sees but seldom on tho
local stage and Is therefore given the
fullest measure of appreciation when he
does appear. In Cecil Owen, as Count
Hentzau, Mr. Leighton had a splendid
foil. The two have merit throughout
their work. "The rest of tho company
was quite satistactory, and the staging
of the piece was all that was needed to
round out the production. Perhaps an
other piece, something lighter a com
edy, say would And greater favor with
the class of patrons who usually till
tho theatres on holidays. Generally,
they go to be entertained, and not to
sit through sombre, though neverthe
less intensely interesting situations.
