If the tit irriug 9 license editor of The

subscriber of this paper's many thou
sands is the author of the above he
could hotter famish the desired infor

vice of "Don't" might be applicable to
Subscriber." The editor's ideas re
frding tiie questions asked are of the
opaque variety to much in vogue now

compelled by the pleasures of their
occupation to labor from fourteen to
twenty-three aud a half hours a day.
However, with tho aid of the offlje boy,
be will do his best to enlighten "Sub

the natnea of parties obtaining license
be published?"
Tim editor of Thk Tumi ne Joes not
thiuk it tiny more necessary to print
the names of all persons who pay 00
cents for a marriage license thau it is
to eat pie with the aid of a fork. Still
it's quite fashionable, and "Subscriber1

The editor regrets very much to state
t.. fcul seribar that if he gets a marriage
license in Lackawanna county lie must

or justices of the peace. This is in
keeping with the true Republican pol

upon whom he calls every night are
petint persons, they can, by waiting
until Oct, I, 1805, secure a license at

"Subscriber" not to wait, as the aver

to the not altogether pleasant
odor of a celluloid collar, and want to
rend in twain their mutual agreement
of love, sweet love.
Fourth question: "Form of marriage

Johnson was working in his chamber

into the powder, for it exploded with
terrific force. Ritiino was burned by

Prayer Meetings Held All Over the
Boroug.li - Mr. Gillam Preaches at
Each Service in tho Presbyterian
Church Sermon on Skepticism In
the Evening.
The revival meetings being conduct
ed by Kev. Ralph Qlflam, who assisted
U. ray Mills in his meetings at the
Adams Avenue tabernacle, at tho FMin
more Presbyterian church, aro attract
iug great interest.
Yesterdnv was a SpSOlsl day and
three services were held at the church.
Prayer meetings were held iu all sec
tions of the borough and were all large
ly attended. Mr. dillam preached
strong sermont at loth forenoon aud
afternoon sessions.
His subject last night was "Skopti
ism," aiid one of the largest uu lieucea
of the week greet d him. The spacious
audltorum was inaiiftioieiit to hold the
rowd, necessitating the op tiipg of the
largo doors leading to tho lecture room
Mr. uillamj text was, ''The Bon of
man bus come to savii that which was
''Then are hero tonight," Slid Mr.
Oillam, "many who came expecting to
hear mu slap at the skeptic; but I want
to talk to the so callo 1 moral man as
well as the skeptic. There is not one bit
of hatred in mv heart tonight because
everyone's belief is not the 8 line us my
sin, NOT BKIPTft isu.
'I do not believe it is skepticism
that keeps a man from accepting Jesui
Christ as a Saviour, but it is sin. Get
sin nut of the heurl aud skepticism
Hies away. There are the honest aud
dishonest skeptic. Tho first is honest
in his skepticism and says very littie
about it, but the dishonest sk 'ptic is
forever tliunting his skepticism betore
the people anil In most cases he dors
not know what ho is talking about.
'T here lire men who are doubt -rs,
but they are tru. men beOSUSS they are
honest in their doubt. I do not believe
Christ can save a man against his own
will. No one can be saved who does
not surrender his will to tho L or I. The
dishonest skeptic cannot withstand
argument and if cornered will gen
erally escape by s lying mean things.
' llier are men beretonignt that are
honest in their skepticism; but I do not
believe that there are any here tonight
that will go out of the door a skeptic if
he prays to (r id for lignt. I ho honest
skeptic wants to believe but cannot,
because of the doubts in his heart
You cannot surrender your will to God
aud offer up prayer expecting to have
it. answered,"
The second part of Mr. Gillam stalk
was given to the moral man. He said:
''There is no tru mor il man outside of
Christianity. I beleive that Jeans
Christ cannot save a man who thinks
he is good euotiga."
"Hell was never prepared for man
but for the devil and his angels and it
is a m ill's own fault if he goes there.
"There are two kinds of moral men
the one who lives a pure life but yet
is; not a Christian and the man who is
always talking about Ins morality
Tho latter claims he has always pai l
his debt- and treat' his neighbors hon-
stlv This he is continually flaunting
before hi3 fellow men und scornseverj-
tnine concerning the church. hat
snch men need is to take their places
before God as sinners and yield to liitn.
"1 would say to the pure moral man,
add to your already good life tbe hope
for the hereafter and give your heart
to God. Seek first the kingdom of
God mid his righteousness and all
else will bp added unto yon.
"To the man who knows he is a sin
ner 1 would say, listen to the text,
'The Son of (foil is como to seek and to
save that which was lost. ' AU a sin
ner must do is to take his place as oue
of the lost and he is saved.
'Jesns is not coming bnt. as the
text says, 'He is come.' He is seeking
the lost ones; not the ones already
saved. The devil is biding for your
souls; Jesus of Nazareth is bidding for
your souls. The one offers worldly
pleasures and hell hereafter; th? other
offers pence and joy in heaven. Which
bid are yon going to accept';1'
Services will be held today at " HO
and 7.30 p. m., in the Dunmore Presby
terian church. Many Bcrantonlani
attend the meetings, und much good is
resulting from Mr. Gillam' labors.
