Hclmonl way when "Just for fun," a
half dozen youngsters pelted him with
snowballs that were to him like balls
of Iron. Ills appreciation or lack of
appreciation of tho joko was shown by
his arresting four of tho lads, Leo
Ivlanskl, Horace Oenry, Leo Dotld and
John Creegan. They wore all hold in
100 hall each to be good. William
Lowry nnd Garfield Orlfflths, who w"ere
likewise charged, were discharged for

The Feast Was Like a Sunday in Its
Almost Hushed Quiet Services at
St. Rose Church and Trinity Epis
copal. The quiet of a Humlay marked Christ
mas day in Carbondalo yesterday. The
flurries of snow during the day gave u
sorfof disagreeable turn to the enjoy
ment of those who were abroad, and
the effect was that but few were seen
oil the streets, This little wlldness of
the elements, however, only served to
add to the comforts of the homo and
fltealde, which, after nil, Is the chief
enjoyment of Christmas day. Work
was suspended generally, which gave
so many the desired opportunity to
make the most of the day. The only
attraction outside of the comforts of
home was the matinee and evening per
formances at the Crnnd. which were
crowded to overflowing on both occa
sions. At tin- hospital theie was sunshine
for tho patients, through the medium
of tho woman's auxiliary board. As
Indicated In another column, the festi

preached by Very ltev. leather Coffey.
The choir, under the direction of Prof.
S. V. .Stockman, and augmented by the
Mozait orchestra, directed by Prof. W.
A. Lynott. rendered Mozart's Seventh
mass most satisfactorily. "Holy Night"
was the opening hymn.
At 10..10 o'clock a solemn high mass
was sung by Ttev. Walter Clorman, with

Tlie set moil was preached by Jlev,
Father Badcr, of (he Order of Redemp
torists. The great lesson, be said, that
the stupendous mystery of the Incar
nation taught us is faith. The picture
or the representation of the crib of
Bethlehem should appeal in an exlra
ordlnaiy manner to our faith. We
should look upon the child in the man
ger and pierce. It with the eye of faith,
revealing the Immense love of Gol for
us in clothing Himself with our human
Tho world. Father Badcr said, is
growing not. to aetvpt things unless
they can be fathomed by reason: the
'dement of faith seems to be cast aside.
In closing, Father Kader cxpresi-ed the
hope that Mio lesson of faith which
fbristmas lauaht would sink deeply
into the hearts of his hearers. Then,
indeed, would it be a merry Christmas.
The Progiamme at Trinity.
The music at Trinity was an edify
ing feature of the services at Trinity
church. The vocalization of the choir,
under the direction of Organist Llew
ellyn Jones, was excellent. Miss Irum
Walteis. vlollnlhtf, accompanied very
efficiently. The choir sang the com
munion service by Kyre for the first
time. Tho effect was splendid.
A special feature of the music was
the solo, "Christmas Slnr," by Mif-s
Mina Frank, who Is a student In tho
ISchool of Music ut Syracuse univer
sity. Miss Frank's singing indicates a
development of btr powers that is
highly gratifying to her admirers, wliu

The Bercan Baptist Sunday School
Scores a Brilliant Success.
The auditorium and Sunday school
room of the llerean Baptist church
were filled last evening by the audience
that assembled to enjoy the presenta
tion of "Santa's Surprise." No finer
Christmas entertainment was ever
given in this city, nnd the, committee
la charge, as well as the performers,
were the recipients of many prattfylng
compliments. Mr. W. it. Yarrlngton,
Jr., as Santa Claus, scored a brilliant
success. His songs were well ren
dered, while In the dialogues with the
children and the gonerul acting of his
part he seemed much at ease, and was
given hearty applause. The song by
Master Hayden Duvls, In which be
impersonated Bashful Sam, was 10
celvod with great favor. The dollle
gill's, dressed In white, and carrying
their dolls, made charming little
mothers; while the fairy girls wore: in
deed light and aliy: the Icicle boys were
not as cold as their name would Imply,
but in their happy songs added much
to the scene; and about fifteen of the
boys from 10 to 14, under command of
Karl Bly, as "Captain Bob," dressed In
while sailor suits and caps, wore n lot
of Jolly "Jack tars."
Tiio cantata was rendered hi two
paits and occupied about an hour and
a. half. Between the parts, the Sunday
school orchestra, under the direction of
Leon Bey, with Miss Grace Hall as
pianist, rendered two selections that
were greatly enjoyed. The orchestra

every child in the intermediate and pri
mary departments being remembered

kindly remembered by their scholars,

a school the Berean church has, and
the general results secured must bo

A. S. Lowsley, and the assistant super
