THE SCItASTfON TBIBTJJOJ -SATURDAY MOTCNTCTGr, SEPTEMBER 11, 1897.
. . . PERSONAL
Wo went to tho seashoro and paid heavy
When 'twna cotd.
Tho rain It did rain and we caught awful
When 'twas cold.
Wo pretended tho water was many de
grees Warmer there,
Than it was! and wo found both mos
quitoes and fleas
In tl.o air.
Wo hied oursolves homeward on raw
And was glad,
To remember that flannels and steam heat
" Hero wo had.
Tho very next week tho thermometer did
It went faster than a, fair woman's bid
Wo think of tho days when they swindled
By tho sad sea waves, when 'twas cool
And wo fear:
That somehow It seems to bo over our
Despite every care, to bo In tho hot place
And wo'ro here.

THE Young Men's Christian asso
ciation in this city will suffer
a severe loss this year in tho
absence of assistant secretary
Wiley whose faithful, rarncst
work in that organization 1ms been a
feature for tho past throe years. Few
people outside the association realize
how valuable has been his presence and
Interest during this time. Possessed of
great natural aljlllty in business, and a
religious spirit beautiful on every side,
his gentle and obliging steadfastness
has been of incalculable service.
Mr. Wiley will leave In January for n
preparatory course at Wyoming sem
inary after which the long deferred
hope of his heart for a college education
will bo realized. Mr. Wiley has labored
under great disadvantages as since ear
ly boyhood his financial help has been
needed at his home and the ambition
to study for th'o ministry has been un
satisfied. Now through his own efforts
a way has opened and the probability
of a university career seems very
promising. Mr. Wiley will still con
tinue his connection with our Young
Men's Christian association, where his
work will go on to some degree in va
cation and on Sunday. Just at present
lie is actively engaged In booking lec
ture and entertainment courses In vari
ous towns In this region and elsewhere.
Tho course arranged for the Young
Men's Christian association of this city
Is more extensive and probably of a
higher order than any yet given here.
It will average a fortnightly entertain
ment during the senson and will open
Oct. 19 with an attraction of the stand
ard course sure to appeal very strongly
to Scrantonlans for it will signalize the
first professional appearance of our own
Edith Norton, who will como with the
famous instrumental quartette, the
Park sisters. The next will bo the
Boston Ladles' Symphony orchestra,
accompanied by Carl Marshall White
and conducted by Mr. Howard, is too
widely known to need further com
ment. Dec, 13. General John B. Gordon, tho
famous southern senator and orator, will
deliver his great lecture, "Closing Days
of tho Confederacy."
Jan. 20. Rov. J. J. Lewis, of Chicago,
will givo tho Illustrated lecture of tho
"Passion Play of Oberammergau."
Feb. 8. Mr. A. V. Bower, lecture,
March 4. The Ohio Torbctt Concert

ish Luttermann quartette.
Tho members' course consists of a
number of excellent entertainments, as

humorist vlollnst, reader, etc.
Dec. 20. Colonel Bain In his great lec
ture, "Tho New Woman and tho Old
Jan. 13. Captain Jack Crawford, tho
Feb. 22.-J. William Mason, tho noted
humorist, who has been on tho Phila
delphia Young Men's Christian associa
tion courso for twelve years.
March 2S Edison Vltagraph company.
April 11. John Thomas Concert com
pany. The second day's session of the Sus
quehanna association at Brooklyn
opened on Thursday morning with
President F. E. Loomls in the chair.
The reports from parishes showed en
couraging elements of growth, notably
In Gibson, where regular services have
not been held for some years. The
hope is that in future the Gibson
church will be opened every Sunday.
The morning sermon was preached by
James Herrlck, lay preacher at Fleet
vllle, from the text Amos, lv-12, "Pre
pare to meet thy God, Oh, Israel."
Tho report of the committee on obit
uaries brought to light the fact that
nine, since the last meeting, have been
called on high. They are: Ellsha Tif
fany, of Dlmock; Mrs. Harriet Kent, of
Brooklyn; Mrs. Maria Barber, of
Scranton; Mr. Elmer G. Bacon, of
Nicholson: Mrs. David Willmarth, of
Hopbottom; Mrs. Permelia Hawley, of
Hopbottom; Mrs. Ives, of New Mil
ford; Mr. and Mrs. Asa Day, Hopbot
tom. At the session of the Young People's
union, the following officers were nomi
nated: President, Rev. R. E. Horn;
vice-president, S. B. Eldrldge; secre
tary, Miss Gertrude Waldle; treasurer,
J. L. Tiffany. It was voted to publish
a quarterly paper during the coming
year, and Rev. R. E. Horn was chosen
editor and manager. The association
will meet next year at Gibson and Rev.
F. W. Whippen, of Scranton, is to
preach the occasional sermon.
The closing sermon of this session
was preached by Rev. F. E. Adams, of
Hopbottom, from I Cor., xllI-12, "Now
we see through a glass darkly, but then
face to face."
The choir of tho Brooklyn church
gave the meetings excellent help and
they were assisted In the afternoon
session by Mrs. E. M. Tiffany, of Hop
bottom, who gave an Inspiring solo.
The usual resolution of thanks to tho
entertaining parish was passed by a
most hearty vote. The meetings were
very Interesting and inspiring.
Probably tho best news that Scran
ton people could hear regarding honor
to one of Its citizens would ho
that of having Rev. Rogers Is
rael selected as a successor to
Hlhop Rullson, tho much-loved
prelate of this dloce&o of the
Episcopal church. Thero Is a possibil
ity that such a choice may be made,
although it is not known whether Mr.
Israel will allow his name to go before
tho Diocesan convention. Should he do
so, a largo number of Scrantonlans, ir
respective of denomination, would un
affectedly rejoice, for since his advent
to this city his reputation for zealous
Christian work has extended far be
yond tho confines of his own parish, or
in fact this diocese. "
The second quarterly meeting of this
conference year, of the United Evan
gelical church, of Scranton and Sibley
charge will be held on Saturday and
Sunday, Sept. 11 and 12. Preaching
services In the Sibley church, Satur
day evening at 7 o'clock. Quarterly
conference after services. On Sunday
morning services and the Lord's Sup
per. In tho evenine services and the
Lord's Supper in tho Trinity Evangeli
cal church, Little England. Rev. C. D.
Moore, of Green Ridge, will bo present
to olllclato in the services. A cordial
Invitation Is extended to all.
The parsonage of tho German Pres
byterian church, which stands on a plot
of ground owned by the congregation,
on Farvlew avenue, will be dedicated
Sunday afternoon. The building was
erected by Contractor Anthony Dick
man and was but recently completed.
It Is the result of much personal effort
upon tho part of tho congregation,
which Is not largo numerically. Rev.
J. Schoettlc, pastor of the church, will
have charge of tho ceremonies and will
be assisted by Rev. E. J. Schmidt, Rqv.
F. E. Haas, both of South Scranton,
and tho churoh ofllclals.
A beautiful work has been taken up
by a number of young women Inter
ested in religious advance In this city
in a way that 'Vlll appeal to many
hearts. Tho Presbyterian church has a
mission called tho West Lackawanna
Mission, which' has dono an enormous
amount of good in that locality. Re
cently Miss Thomas ,a kindergartener,
formerly of Plttston, who Is Interested
in charitable and religious nuns, sug
gested that a kindergarten be estab
lished In this particularly neglected
Held, and that sho would give her ser
vices If the voung women who had
been Identified In the mission work
would assist her In taking caro of tho
largo number of children who would
undoubtedly wish to enter. Volunteers
have been received so rapidly that the
kindergarten Is a success, thanks to
Mrs. 13. L. Fuler, who has arranged to
furnish supplies, nnd also to the young
girls who are each to give up one fore
noon a week to this branch of the
Master's service. Those who will assist
Miss Thomas during the term are the
Misses Hanley, tho Misses Sanderson,
Miss Elizabeth Torrey, Miss Stelle,
Miss Blrdsall, Miss Grace Kierstead.
The children will pay a nominal fee
one penny a day, which Is all they can
pay for the privilege, the influence of
which must certainly be felt In that

other of tho main leading singers at
tend tho ball, dance, and play cards.
They aro very Influential members of tho
church, and It seems as If wo could not
get on without them. Thero Is a good
deal of complaint about them. They
could not bo Induced to give up the
forbidden amusements, but they will quit
the service and probably tho church if
they uro put out of their positions. What
Is my duty In tho matter?
A. There Is no reason for putting them
out of their positions that would not
i require their exclusion from tho church.

The Discipline plainly makes It tho duty
of tho pastor to proceed against such
persons when ho hecomes nware of tho
facts. It does not make It his duty to
play tho part of a detective, but In a
conspicuous case, whero his nttentlon Is
directed to It, ho must steadily and pa
tiently endeavor to Induce them to give
up these things. If they wero not mem
bers of the church, and were employed
from outside, definitely having a good
moral reputation, and It was Impossible
to secure n good organist and singer from
among the people, It might not bo neces
sary to Inquire Into their habits with
regard to amusements. Tho Issue thnt
you havo raised Is an Issue of member
ship, and that Is tho primary Issue to
settle. Tho question of getting on with
out them Is not the question. No person
Is necessary to God's plan. No local
church Is necessary to His plans. If
Methodism had gono upon that simple
principle, which none can deny, It would
not havo had half as many members as
It now has, but It would havo more moral
power. We do not refer merely to
amusements, but to the administration of
moral and religious discipline.
