Around the pulpit were arranged a large number of cut flowers and potted plants. Mr. Bell took the following text for his sermon: "Thy word Is a Lamb unto my feet; and a light unto my path." After Impressing the meaning of the text firmly upon the minds or the young people, he pave by Illustration the usages of lamps on ships and rail roads and how they forcibly suggest the great light of God in making It clear to us what path to follow.

' Miss Carrie Louis, supported by the Walte Comedy company, which appears at the Frothlngham this evening, Tues day and Wednesday, at popular prices, In a repertoire of comedies and dramas, Is a bright and charming actress. The Dayton Herald has the following to say of her performance there: "Miss Carrie Louis, a bright and vivacious soubrette, opened a week's engagement at the Grand last evening, playing to a repre sentative and fashionable Dayton au dience.' 'The Buckeye,' a catchy drama, blending wit and pathos, waa presented. Miss Louis' winsome manner and In terpretation of her lines won high favor with tho critical audience. Her sing ing and dancing specialities received numerous encores." Matinee Tuesday and Wednesday at the low price of 10 cents. II II II The announcement that "Oliver Twist" will be seen at the. Academy of Music on Thursday evening, suggests one of the most Important dramatic productions even given at this theatre. Of the many works written by Charles Dickens which have been dramatized, it Is doubtful If any of them possess dramatic features so alluring as "Oliver Twist." The members of the company who are enlisted In this presentation, are, In nil the leading roles at least, people of reputation and recognized ability. Miss Ellta ProctorOtls, who will play Nancy Sykes, first came Into pro fessional prominence as Mrs. Eastlake Chapel In "The Crust of Society," In which role she achieved a marked suc cess. It is In a measure a transition from the society lady to the denizen of the slums, and such a transition Is not an easy one even to actresses whose career has been more lengthy than that of Miss Otis. Her success Is well known, however. ! II II II 'A Jolly Lot" will be the attraction nt Dnvls' theater tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday. The piece comprises a carnival of fun and specialty, and Is headed by the "Four Emperors of Music," who scoped a hit in Scranton with the "A Jay Circus" company. Davis' theatre has been peculiarly for tunate In. securing attractions which, without exception, have been pleasing and meritorious, and the popularity seems bound to be continued In "A Jolly Lot." Thura linn linen already an extra ordinarily large demand for seats for Palmer Cox's "Brownies." Judging from the Interest displayed, the limit ed engagement of C. B. Jefferson, Klaw & Erlanger's magnificent spectacular production, direct and intact from its long run of 160 nights at the Fourteenth Street theater, New York, will play to the greatest business yet done at the Frothlncham. The engagement Is .limited to Thursday, Friday and Sat urday nights of this week, with one matinee only, on Saturday. Seals go on sale this morning, and the manage' ment advises that they be secured well In advance, In order that no disappoint menu may ensue. This will be tho only opportunity, of witnessing the great' production, for Scranton will be tho only city In Pennsylvania In which It is to appear. Large parties will come to the performances from Wilkes Harre, Carbondale, Plttston and other towns. The stage Is to be In charge of Charles B. Jefferson, Joe Jefferson's son, and Palmer Cox, the famous "Brownie man," Is to personally super vise the production. Arthur Frothing ham's enterprise In guaranteeing JIS.DOO for the four performances, as well as defraying the expenses of a special train to bring the mammoth equip ment from New York to Scranton, Is being much talked about. E. H. Sothern In "Cnptlan Lettcr- blalr" Is booked for the Academy Frl day night. Neither tho actor nor the play needs elaborate comment. Mr. Sothern Is cleauiy recognized ns one of the leading American players and "Captain Letterblair" is said to be his greatest success. This Is Indlcuted by the fact that during a long run at the Lyceum theater. New York, three mat! noes were given each week. This Is an unusual thing In the metropolis, but the public demanded It. Mr. Sothern, In the play, represents a young Irish officer In the British army, and In this character clinched more strongly his popularity with the Lyceum's fashion able patrons.

IILTARY JEWS LETTER Lieutenant Colonel Coursen Un doubtedly the Next Commander. CONTEST FOR THE MAJORSHIP Major Mattes Will lie Lieutenant Colonel, but Ills Successor Is Unknown. Paragraph No. 10, of tho Code, Hovcnls a State of Affairs, The order for an election to fill tho office of colonel of the Thirteenth regi ment has been published. Lieuten ant Colonel Coursen is the unanimous choice of the line officers and he will be elected. There Is no doubt that Major Mattes will become lieutenant colonel. The doubt. If any, Is as to who will bo elect ed to Major Mattes' position. Captain Montrose Barnard Is the senior line officer nnd he is confident of his elec tion. His friends are pushing his claim for all It Is worth, and It is a good one, but ex-Captain William B. Rock well, formerly of Company H, has an nounced himself a candidate and. Is working hard for the necessary number of votes. Paragraph No. 10 of the military code specifies that: "The military officers of the state shall be chosen hs follows: Field officers of regiments and battal ions by the written or printed votes of the commissioned officers of the compa nies of the respective regiments or bat talions." There are at present twenty three line or company olllcers In the regiment. Captain Alney, of Company G, Montrose, has resigned, and should his resignation be accepted before the ninth, there will be but twenty-two. Three of the twenty-two have not re ceived commissions, nor Is It proba-ble that they can be secured before the election. If this Is the case, and the sense of Paragruph No. 10 Is that none but those holding commissions shall be eligible to a vote, .there will be but twenty votes, Including that of Captain Alney. So, .eleven votes will be neces sary to elect. Chnngo In Company I. If Captain Burnard should be elected to be major, Lieutenant Stratton will be a candidate for captain of Company D. It Is not known that Lieutenant Stokes will oppose Lieutenant Stratton, but should he conclude to do so, there may bi a close contest. Company B is awaiting an order that they may elect a captain. Lieutenant Kambeck Is the only one mentioned for the position. The rehearsals for "Allaloona" .are bring held three times a' week under the able direction of Stage Manager D. Webster Seism.

Almost Miraculous. Fortunately, perhaps, the Consumptive does not realize his own condition. His is a disease of continual waste until lie meets a death that Is In reality one of starvation. , It is now generally conceded that this disease is Incurable, that is, by any known medicine. Change of climate, or some life-infusing food that will give new flesh, blood, and strength, and induce the various organs of the body to assume their normal functions, this is the only hope. The only way to do tbls effectually is to give the patient lioviulne, that great raw food product, the greatest concentration of the life-giving elements of raw beef known to modern science. In this con nection the results obtained by Dr. J. II. Head of Atlanta, Oa., in the treatment of a case of consumption, are interesting. Dr. riad relates briefly how a man about thirty-five years of age came to him for treatment. He had lost forty pounds in weight in six months; he suffered with a bad cough and experienced severe night sweats; lie was unable to do any work; most of his family had died of consump tion, and on examination his right lung was found to be seriously affected, and as the doctor remarked, " He was in a good way to have an early funeral." But not what happened. He was given Bovlnino. In two weeks ha had gained seven pounds, his appetite had returned, he was able to do a good day's work, and most of the 'distressing symptoms had vanished; and at the time of writing the doctor felt sure of a complete cure. ' This is but one of many similar cases. Bovinine will give new life and strength, make new blood and flesh, stop waste, ward off disease, and turn the current of life's river again Into its natural channel. Give it one trial while there is yet hope. ROOF TIMING AND SOLDERING of ingredients well-known to all.
