The political excitement that permeates
every nook ot the United States is responsi
ble for the ssoilinc of-the plans of the
Pittsburg ladies who had arranged for a
lecture by Mrs. Edmund Russell last night.
IThe lady was to have talked about Del
aarteism in the Pittsburg Club Theater,
Under the auspices ot a circle of King's
Daughters, but estheticism cannot stand
against brass bands and torchlight-bearing
marchers, full of policical enthusiasm, and
the lecture was accordingly postponed. It
is to be given Monday atternoon, the 14th
inst, at the residence ot Mr. and Mrs. C. L.
Magee, admission being bv invitation. The
title ol the lecture is "The Art ot Express
Jon." Mrs. Ru&sell will be the guest of
Mrs. Coster during her short stay in Pitts
burg. A dainty luncheon was given by Mrs.
"Wilson Harper, ot Larimer avenue, East
End, Wednesday, in honor of Mrs. Mullan,
who was Miss Stephenson. Among the tea
other cuests were Mrs. Wersel.Miss Webb,
the Misses Harper, Mrs. Colviu, Mrs. Car

Charity is a beautiful thing in itself, but
It is never more so than when associated
with the dainty prettiness ot lile. This was
the sentiment expressed by more than one of
the guests at the musicale at the residence
of Mr. and Mrs. Jan is Adams, tor the
benefit of the Homeopathic Hospital, Fri
day night. Music ot the most refined char
acter was heard there, and from the moment
"when the delicate harmonies of Mascagni's
"Intermezzo" broke through the stillness ot
the great hall to that when the pathetio
fareell "Good-night" was sung by trained
Toices the listeners ielt that they were in
an atmosphere ot art that lilted their sonls
to a higher plane, and attuned them to
human kindness. In assisting a good cause
there is no reason why some other pleasure
should not be enjoyed by the donors. En
tertainments iu wnicti refinement and
culture are the most noticeable character
istics always command more attention, and
lead to more generosity than those which
are obviously of a catchpenny nature.
Pittsburgers are proverbially liberal, but
they like to see charities conducted with a
due regard to art and culture when it is
possible. A more delightiul entertainment
,an that at Grand View Friday night was
ver given lor sweet charity's sake or any-
Tnursday evening next, the 10th inst, is
the date set lor the Slephenson-Humphries

The lovely mansion of Mr. and Mrs. H.
C Pry, on a hill overlooking the town of
Rochester, Pa., was a fitting place for a
wedding, and was so pronounced by the
guests who witnessed the marriage of the
daughter ot the house, Mus Clara Belle
Pry, to Mr. Henry Judson Sage,-ol Boston,
last Tuesday. It was tne first wedding that
had ever taken place in the home, and the
occasion uss therelore a notable one. Palms
and cbrjsauthemumi were used tastetully
and liberally to enhance the1 natural beau

bewildering. The house was lull ot guests,
and when the young couple lett'ou their
bridal tour which is to end in their luture
home at Buffalo, a shower of congratula
tions, in whicu was the true ring of sin
cerity, was sent alter them irotn a hundred
pairs ot lips.

The chrysanthemum is enjoying an un
precedented run ol popularity. Chrysan
themum teas 'have, been the lad, and now

NEW HIGH SCHOOL PLAN.
The Principals Insist on a Modification as to
Geography, Otherwise They Are Satisfied
The Scheme Will Probably Be Adopt
edOdds and Ends.
Since the publication or the last examina
tion plan lor admittance to High School
the principals and assistant principal's, the
ones most directly interested, have been in
deep meditation and the result was a call
for a meeting at the Franklin School yester
Their objection was the study of googTa
phy which according to the new plan is
transferred for examination from the month
of December to June, thus practically elim
inating the preliminary examination en
tlrely. This objection was fixed ud by pass
ing a resolution requesting the Secretary or
the Central Board of Education to urge
upon that body, tbat the pupils' knowledge
of the subject of geography be certified to
this year by the principals, so as to have no
examination at all in this branch this year.
After this year, having plenty of time to get
accustomed to the change, the prin
cipals will not object to the ex
amination. With this modification
the High school plan, which will be
recommended by the Revision Committee to
the Central Board of Education for adoption
next Tuesday evening, received the Indorse
ment or the principals and assistant princi
pals or the city, and with such an approba
tion the plan has every likelihood of being
Next Tuesday being election night there
will be no difficulty in obtaining a quorum
of Central Board members as they will all be
in town to hear the "returns."
The Alumnse Will Celebrate.
Yesterday all day long the executive com
mittee of the Normal High School Alumnas
was busy directing invitations to the over 500
graduates or this popular institution to come
and celebrate their filth annual banquet at
High School Hall, the evening of December
2. The card of invitation reads from 8 to 2
and as the event occurs on a Friday evening,
with an "off" day on Saturday, the school
ma'ams will make mcirv at their
lete of the year. The Royal Italian
Orchestra will furnish the musio and an
East End caterer will attend to the supper.
Previous to the dancing a fine programme
is being prepared for the entertainment of
the guests. The Amphion Quartet and
Henry Girding are down for musical selections.

LIGHTNING IN PITTSBURG.
The Iron Smoke Stacks, Steel Bridges,
Metalllo Bound Sheds, Electrlo Wires
and Street Car Bails Diffuse the Most
Powerful Discharges The Heart, of the
WnlTTEIf FOR Till DISPATCH.!
The chances are estimated at something
like a million to one against an Individual
being struck by' lightning, yet the fear of it
seems rather to be Increasing rather than
diminishing. The electrical storms in Pitts
burg last summer carried terror to many a
heart, and more 'people than one would
suppose welcome the coming winter princi
pally because its skies will be free from the
Electricians and scientific men generally,
declare that every large city in the United
States is, at least In its heart, perfectly pro
tected against a stroke of lightning from
the clouds. This ought to be re
assuring. Yet at times the facts
seem to be as much against as
with these authorities, and there is so much
that they do not know, tbat a reasoning
novice may be pardoned for doubting the
universal application or their theories. Any
one who has ever witnessed the appalling
forco of a direct stroko of lightning may be
pardoned for doubt as to any human agency
being able to divert it, or to diffuse it harm
lessly. On the stieet, under supposed con
ductive shelter, or in an ordinary building,
the terrors of an active electric storm are
vivid enough; but in a large telegraph efflce
they are appalling to one of nervous tempera
ment. An instance in point occurred In this
A Scene in a Telegraph Office,
During an especially violent storm of
thunder and lightning, as chronicled In the
local papers at the time, the Western Union
Telegraph office, at Fifth avenue and Wood
street, was a scene -of unspeakable terror.
The unusual severity and frequency or the
lightning had been noted throughout the
evening, though without exciting more than
the usual amount of comment. Suddenly
there came a flash of the most Intense vivid
ness. It was us disturbing to the humors or
the eyes as the unveiling or a direct and
powerful electric light m close proximity in
the thickest darkness. Without a quiver
every electiic light in the big office was ex
tinguished. Instantly there was a tremend
ous crash. It was that of the synchronous
thunder, but not a man In the office could
realize it. An awful explosion it was, too
beard for miles around.
"I thought it was the crack of doom,
sure," said one operator in describing tho
scene. "It seemed as though the office haa
been struck, and I thought I could feel the
top floor ot the lofty building falling out
ward into the streets."
In perhaps hair a minute the electrlo
lights resumed their accustomed radiance.
and tho wonted tranquility of the operating
force was partially lestored. But every face
in that office had been blanched, and moie
than three-tourths of the men had arisen
from their chaiis as though to prepare lor
The Itlan at the Switch Board.
But it is the wire chief who has to race the
lightning as its brilliant flashes and mus
ketry rattle roll acioss the switch ooard,
within a lew inches or his race. Only the
steadiest nerve can resist the impulse to
"Jump" when an unusually loud report or
bright flash occurs. To watch the antics of
a nervous wire chief is as mirth-provoking
as to contemplate the noddings and recov
eries of a sleepy deacon in church on a
warm Sunday. It is 10 to 1, too, tbat the
man who laughs the hardest wiUJumD the
highest when he innocently approaches the
switch board and encounters a specimen of

Company, said the other day: "This city Is

In Isolated sections of the surrounding
townships are of frequent occurrence. Our
Iron budges, our countless smoke-stacks,
our great metallic-bouna sheds, our electric
wires overhead, our steel rails on the sur
face, and our underlying ore deposits all
these, or a part of them, are sufficient to
divert or diflue the most powerful stroke of
lightning I have ever seen. I feel a sense of
absolute safety In Pittsburg, and nowhere
is this sense so acute with me as in a tele
graph office. Each wire is gauged to carry
only so much current, ir it crosses with an
electrlo light or motor wire, the increase or
current will melt it and break tne circuit,
thus disconnecting the office. Tha srttir

Cleveland's Baking Powder.
February 5, 1892.
After long and careful trial of others, I prefer
Cleveland's Baking Powder for several reasons. . .
Cleveland's is a pure cream of tartar and soda
mixture, not containing alum or ammonia or any other
substance deleterious to the human -stomach. ' ,
Cakes, muffins, biscuits, &c, in which Cleveland's
Baking Powder is used, keep better. . ;
A like quantity of Cleveland's Baking Powder
goes further and does better work than any other of
which I have knowledge. It is therefore cheaper.
