There- Is no ruasoimblu cause for tho
year '07 to Kick about Its reception. It
was tlemonstrntlvo enough to suit even
the most nolse-lovine; of youths, Old
'90 lind hardly retired from the stage
of action when thu welcome to his
youtiK successor begun.
Holla iniifr, whistles blew, and as If
by mngle an army of young men ap
pealed about town urmetl with tin
lioriiH and other devices for disturbing'
the atmosphere and making- the nerv
ous HhuUder, and lor over half an hour
tho combined efforts of the welcomers
made a din that would have been In
tolerable, at any other time.
Hut it was New Year's eve and every
one expected that sort of thing so no
one objected save the dyspeptics, not
even the policemen although the luttor'n
patience was often sorely tried. They
had their orders to give the relobrators
a little more leeway thnn Is usually ac
corded u nil they obeyed orders for the
policeman In common with the rest of
healthy humanity, likes to see the
members of the human family bestlro
themselves accaslonally and give vent
to their pent up feelings.
When a number of young men start

with the material for a bonlire and
the expressed determination of making;

police made up their mind that right
there was where the line between jollity
and foolishness should bo drawn and
they diew It. The bonfire did not take
place, to the chagrin of the exuberant
young men who planned it in one of
the establishments where colored fluids
are dispensed by the glass. As a sort
ot a compromise with themselves they
tiled to blow up Patrolmnn Tom Lowry
with a largo cannon cracker and the
probabilities are that some of them are
still running.
TH 13 Y UEQAK EAIU,Y.
Quite early In tho evening the streets
contained a number of celebrators and
the toot of the fish horn and clang of
the bell was heard at Intervals ns he
night wore along. It was when the
witching hour of midnight arrived that
the great chorus began mm It contin'ued
without let or hlnderanco for nearly an
hour until even the steam whistles had
exhausted themselves. Then quiet was
restored and the New Year having
been properly greeted those who were
responsible for all the tumult sought
their homos.
It was not with these loud outward
demonstrations that all greeted the
year. There were many quiet social
events In various parts of the city
where the old year was danced out and
the now danced In or greeted In some
other way. In many of the churches
watch night services were held.
In ISlni Park church the service be
gan at 9 o'clock with literary exer
cises In ehaiRo of the Kpworth League
which lasted one hour From 10 to 11
o'clock there were G-mlnuto addresses
and at the latter hour Hev. Dr. C. M.
Giflln, the pastor, took charge. He
made a short address. There was
silent prayer at midnight.
Watch services began at S o'clock in
the Ponn Avenue Haptlsl church. Be
ginning at 11:35 o'clock Hev. Dr. Dixon,
the pastor, pleached a sermon and at
midnight while the church hell was
ringing Mrs. Lizzie Hughes lSrundage
sang the solo, "Kternity."

LIUlo, the G-ycar-old daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Dennis Ulaekledge, of Thomp
son street, narrowly escaped being

The little one was in the cellar and
In all probability was playing with the
furnace when her clothes caught lire.
Her screams were heard by her par
ents who were in an upstairs room.
Itoth rushed to her assistance and at
tempted to tear off the burning cloth
ing. The child, nearly crazed with pain,
broke away from them and ran up
stairs The father and mother pursued
her and finally succeeded in smother
ing the flames. The child was severely
burned about the chest and arms and
her condition is precarious. Mr. and
Mrs. Ulaekledge were severely burned
on the hands.
Mrs. .Ulaekledge was taken seriously
111 In consequence of the excitement.

lioth sessions reopen Monday, Jan. 4.
Another student, a lady, lms secured
a position with a well-known firm.
Many new students will ome during
January. Arrangements to properly
accommodate all have been completed.
The reputation of this school is such
that it has never been necessary to em
ploy canvassers to solicit oatronage.
No contract Is made with His student
until he Is ready to enter.
The "courses of study" ire the result
of the proprietors' ten years of experi
ence In business college work light here
in the city. They are as strong ns the
strongest, stronger than rnusr. Th.
new series of text books, adoptel last
September, are fully up to date and
such as are used In schools like the
Metropolitan, of Chicago.
No "Budget System," no 'cabinet
System," no "Actual Business fiom
Start to Finish," no "Catchy" system
by which young people are deluded Into
believing that by the expenditure of
little effort and time on their part they
can be turned out full-Hedged book
keepers and stenographers. Theory
and practice, practice and theory, com
bined with absolute thoroughness.
The rates of tuition churged by the
Scranton Business College are as low
as can ho charged by any first-class
Institution. This school has demon
strated Its ability to fulfil all of Its con
tracts. Visitors always welcome. No trouble
to show rooms and explain courses and

FUNDS NEEDED FOR
A SUMMER HOME
Men's Guild" of St. Luke's Church to
Conduct a Notable Entertainment.
WORTHY OBJECT IT HAS IN VIEW
The Guild lias Itccn Oilcrcd a Ilull.l
ing at (.'rrseo Well Adapted lor n
Summer Home for Convalescent
Women mill Children and nn I'.iloit
Is to He Made to liaise the Ftiiiils;
Necessary to Secure It.
There Is no charity In tho city of
Scranton which more strongly appeals
to the peoplo of all classe than tho
Summer Homo for convalescent women
mid children conducted under the aus
pices of the Men's (lulltl of St. Luke's
church. Dining several seasons from
eighty to one hundred convalescent wo
men and children have been taken from
the unsanitary tenements of tho city
mid entertained for periods of from ten
to thirty days at a pleasant country
home where, with pure, Invigorating
air and nourishing food, they have been
restored to health and strength.
It Is a charity that does not extend
Its aid to professional paupers, but pro
vides for the bulling up In strength of
such women and children as are recom
mended by physicians and clergymen
as being deserving working people un
able, through lack ot means, to secure
the advantages the Home offers, and
which are so frequently necessary for
speedy restoration to health.
During the past two seasons the
Men's Guild have been handlcaped by
lack of accommodation for the largo
number of patients really needing the
benefits given by the Home owing to
the lack of a suitable building in a
piojier location.
BUILDING AT CHESCO.
Through the kindness of Charles
Sehlager, a farm house at Lake Ariel
which he owns was donated for the
seasons of 1S9," and 1890, but it was
only a temporary assistance and tho
building was not really adapted to the
work. The Guild has been offered a
well adapted, and finely constructed
building at Cresco for a very low fig
ure If used for this charitable work,
and an effort Is beinsr made to secure
funds sufllclent to pay at least a por
tion of tho purchase money required.
Mr. llallstead, of the Delaware, Lack
awanna and Western railroad company
hns secured a rate of fare for patient
to nnd from the Home at an exceed
ingly reasonable-figure so that the Guild
can, If it secures the building and
grounds offered It, at least double the
amount of good in succeeding warm
seusons that it has in the past.
With the object of raising funds a
contract has boon made with Walter
C. Clark, of Dotrolt, to give a grand,
spectacular pantomime ot Ben-Hur at
the Frothlngham on the evenings of
January 21, 22, and 23, with a matinee
on the 23rd. About one hundred and
twenty-five peoplo will take part In
the production. The costumes and a
car load of scenery, stage mechanism
and electrical appliances are furnished
by Mr. Clark.
A FINE PBODUCTION.
The production has been arranged
under the personal supervision of Gen
eral Lew Wallace and Mr. Clark has
special permission from' Harper Broth
ers, the publishers, to make the produc
tion, the only stipulation being that no
professional theatrical peoplo are to
take part. All references to the Sav
iour that would In the least offend
the most devout christian have been
eliminated without detracting from the
beauty and Interest of tho production.
The pantomime and tableaux have been
produced In a number of prominent
cities throughout tho Union for charit
able and religious benefits. Among
recent successful productions was that
at Cleveland, Ohio wheie, among other
prominent society people who took part
were Mrs. Mark Manna and her daugh
ter. As soon as all the arrangements
are completed wo will publish a list of
the ladles and gentlemen taking part.

tho show Is a seiles of dances by M.
Florence Edwards. This Is very beau
tiful. The show closes with a grand
electrical climax, the like of which has
never before been seen nt Davis'.
Joo Madden as tlu; eccentric Irishman
