MR. HARRIS, DETECTIVE.
lie Made It Extremely Unpleasant for a
Pickpocket He Caught Plying Ills
Trade at the Circus
There arc two men who will not for
get tho circus for somo time. Ono of
them Is David Harris, of North Gar
field avenue, and the other a pick
pocket. While Mr. Harris was taking
Jn the sights of tho side show a young
woman touched him upjj the shoulder
ond told him that a man had twice at
tempted to pull her skirt loose and
as ho (Mr. Harris) was the only ono
she knew near her "would ho please
watch the man."
Harris told her tp step back to the
place she had vacated and he would
watch tho fellow Carefully stealing
up behind the rascal, ho caught him
Just In the act of committing a third
attempt Seizing his fellow with his
' left hand by the collar1 and straighten
ing him up, Harris plunged his right
hand Into his face. Then followed a
football, scene In which tho pickpocket
was ball and tho bystanders were
players. In-attempting to get away tho
football ran against Harris again and
in striking him an upper cut, Harris
broke the knuckle bone and tho meta
carpal bones of the little and third fln
'The pickpocket was seen again in
the-' overling aBklng Patrolman Saul
on the west side for a place to sleep.
He was o'ffored a cell nnd cot, but did
not seem to want that as ho ran off
down Jackson street and was last
seen going up Lackawannu. avenue
without coat or hat.
In the -excitement of the scrimmage,
no one thought of handing the fellow
over to an oillcer, but his Injuries were
enough to be a reminder of his Scran-
ton visit. They consisted or a gnsn
-over the- right .eye, both eyes black,

SERM6N OF REV. JAMES HUQHES.
He i-'illcd the Pulpit of tho Tirst
Welsh llaptist Church.
Itev. Jnmea Hughes, the South Af
rican missionary, who is visiting his
brother, John 11. Hughes, occupied the
pulpit of the First Welsh Baptist
church yesterday. Ho took his text
for the morning sermon from Hark 1:1
"The beginning of tho Gospel of the
Son of God." During his discourse
ho said In part:
Most of you, I presume, know that tho
word gospbl means good news. Every
man with a heart will cay It Is good, tlio
best he has experienced In this world,
he never experienced any so inspiring,
cnohllng and elevating as the gospel.
Kvery man with a heart win say It is
new, every man with an understanding
mind will eay it is new the newest thing
In life. Thcru is in our day a craving
for novelty, a morbid tendency for new
things. We Jiavo in the Bible a perennial
newness. The gospel la the first nnd tho
last of Its kind. Tho gospel Is divided
into sections, Mathew. Mark, Luke and
John. Wo speak of all theso Sections as
tho Gopel. Each section has special char
acteristics. Mathew Is the gospel of the
King It is rcg.il from first to last.
Luke the gospel of tho man. Jusus In
Luke Is Hesh of my flesh, hlood of my
blood; bolng human he knows all about
us. In Iho 19th of Luke and tenth vewo
wo llnd thpse words: "For tho Son of
Man Is como to seek and to savo that
which was lost." Son of Man, what a
peculiar expression! Supposo somo cnt.
of you wcro to go around tho street of
Bcrnnton tomorrow and say "I am tho
Sop of Man." You would concludo there
was something wrong with such a per
son's head. Jesus was tho Son of Man,
not tho son of Joseph, tho carpenter of
Nazareth, not tho eon of a Jew, but the
Son of Man, tho Spn of.tho human family.
Ho Is tho perfect blossom of tho human
family. Luke is tho gospel of man.
The leading characteristic of tho gos
pel of John Is different from Mathew apd
Luke. It is not exactly the gospel of
tho King, or of man, but of tho eternal
genealogy of Jesus. In the beginning was
tho Word and tho Word was with God,
nml thn Word was God." Wo have In
Africa Spilgs of philosophers, who pro
fess to know the ag6 of tho world. They
search the rocks, etc., but no matter
how far back they placo tho beginning,
they have to como to tho conclusion there
was a beginning. Yes, there was a be
ginning, o,nd Jesus was there then. Uc-
foro tho morning stars sang, ueiuic uu
angel was born, was He. "In tne begin
ning was tho Word, and tho Word was
Mark is not tho gospel of the kingdom,
or man, nor of UioTiternM "genealogy, but
of work. Ho camo hero to work. Somo
thcro aro who think that work Is a de
gradation. Tho workers aro the i true aris
tocracy of tho world. It Is difficult to
get servants to work in Africa, It Is bo
comlnp so In England, because they think
It a degiudatlon. A degradation to work!
Jmih did not como Into tho worlil to io
to the wqrld nn object lesson on tho dlg
u,. f uorvinL' Ho washed their feet,
thereby giving an occular demonstration
of tho honor of serving.
Tho gospel commenced In tho mvino
mind. It was then nn Impondcrablo some
thing In His mind. It was not un after
thought to correct tno mismKcs oi ura
tlon. No. but it was a foregono conclu
sion that tho world was to bo saved
to be redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ah tho temple In Jerusalem was a casket
to hold "the Sheklnah, tho miraculous
light or visible glory which was a sym
bol of tho dlvino presence so was tho
body of Christ a casket In which was
God. Ho was God manifest In the lleh."
Tho "Word?" What Is the Word? What
Is tho legitimate use of language. It
should show what man Is In his Inward
heart. If when you meet a person you
should sny "I am glad to sco you," when
In your heart you do not feel so, you,
mako an Improper use or language, 'ilia
"Word" here Is the true expression or
God's heart. Tho Word was God.
He referred to the conversion of the
soul, and eloquently described true con
version. Tho water falling and surging as they
fall over tho rocks to tho depth, never
resting until they reached their native
homo In tho ocean, tho nlr escaping from
a bottle whero It had been confined for
years, on ascending, wero used us Illus
trations of tho truly converted In their
constantly moving on and ascending to
their nattvo home.
The truths of tho g9spel sustained us
when our dear ones wero taken away
from us In death. They hnve gono homo
-gone back to God. Ho described tho
glorious welcome they would glvo to
their loved ones into tho land of bliss.
He asked the congregation: Have you
this hope of the gospel, that can and
will premeato your whole life, that will
scatter the shadows and give the light
FLAG POLE ERECTED,
Tho erection of a 30 foot Hag polo and
tho (lying therefrom of a beautiful
silk flag was ono of tho Incidents of
Saturday's celebration. Tho pole was
erected upon tho lawn of John Hale

A GREAT REMEDY.
For Sufferers from Piles.
Dr. Redmond, a specialist In tho
study and treatment of Piles and rectal
diseases, recently stated that the Pyra
mid Pile Cure, the new discovery for
tho cure of piles, was tho most re
markable remedy ho hud over seen or
tried In ono respect; and that was, tho
Instant relief experienced In all cases,
no matter how severe, from the mo
ment the remedy was applied; this was
tho more surprising to Jilm, because
he had carefully analyzed the prepara
tion nnd no trace of opium, cocalno ot
similar poison could bo detected.
Physlclana look with great favor
upon the Pyramid Pile Cure, because It
la rapidly taking tho place of surgical
opsratlons and because It Is so simple,
so easily applied and contains no min
eral or other poisons bo commonly used
In pile cures.
Dr. Esterbrook reports that the Py
ramid Pile Cure not only cures the
various forms of riles, but never falls
to give Immediate relief on the first
Application, no matter how severe the
pain or discomfort may be.
Peoplo who have Buffered from ples
for years are often astonished at the
Instant relief experienced from tho first
application. Another Important ad
vantage Is the fact that anyone can
use tho remedy without detention from
business or Interference with daily oc
cupation. Sold by drugglats at 60
cents per package.

for a moment. Do you see these gores in the skirt

other corset in the world. Look at the arrangement
of the whalebones, which down to the smallest splint
are genuine and Qf the finest quality. These, too, are
differently placed and for very good reasons. Next,
take in the lines on which this garment is moulded.
Measure them, and if you know anything about the
human form you'll admit that they are scientifically
made. All the dozens or more models in Redfern
