It has been the custom of the children residing In the vicinity to play around the corner of Wayne avenue and Will lam street, and although the police have for a long time endeavored to stop it, their efforts have been unsuccessful, as boys are stationed around to let their companions know when an officer is In sight. One night Patrolman Mills was sent to that vicinity, but not be ing in uniform, and arrested three boys, who were taken before Alderman Roberts and discharged on their prom ising to keep quiet on the streets.

Mr. Corser was a student at the Union eemlnary and his application caused much discussion. Rev.

' Rev. E. McLean said that "every tub should stand on Its own bottom,"- and the question ot seminary should not be allowed In the discussion, if the appli cant was sound In the faith, and be lieved In the principles of the church. Dr. McLeod explained that he urged the matter as a question of loyalty to the general assembly, and eventuully It was decided that Mr. Corsetl be received and placed under the charge of Rev.

A mo tion was thereupon placed before the meeting that the action of tho presby tery In closing tho nominations be reconsidered, when 28 voted for and 33 against the motion. Hullng of the Moderator. Dr. McLeod thereupon pointed out that twenty-eight persons formed a considerable section of the meeting and asked If they could vote for persons other than those nominated. The vot ing showed that 2S persons desired to reconsider the matter and should be given the opportunity.

STURGES Delightful Discourse Upon Japan and the Japs. FRENCHMEN OP THE FAR EAST Particular Attention Is Paid to the Courtesy and Hospitality of tlio Japanese Manners and Customs - of the Enlightenod People. An audience which filled every seat In the leoture room of the Green Ridge Presbyterian church last night heard E. B. Sturges deliver an admirable and instructive lecture on "Japan and the Japs." it was the first of a series of four talks to be given on Tuesday nights and was Illustrated by stere optlcon views made from original ko dak pictures taken by Mr. Sturges In his trip around the world. The re maining lectures and views will be upon "China and Ceylon," "The 'Mon key' Land" and Egypt and Palestine" In the order named. Throughout the lecture the audience evinced a profound Interest, and the wrapt attention accorded Mr. Sturges was the best evidence that his Introduc tory apology for his Inability was not borne out.. His lecture smacked more strongly of the bright, chatty and en tertaining talk of a traveler, rather than a statistical, dry and historical expressions of the ordinary lecturer, l-'rcnelimen of the Lust. He put particular emphasis on the Japanese people being the Frenchmen of the East In their courtesy, hospital ity and love of amusement. Their pe culiar clinging to things of the ipast while acquiring more rapidly than any other nation the enlightenment of the present he referred to frequently. This feature, too, was often observed In the views which showed perhaps a Buddh ist temple, 'maybe several centuries old, but surrounded by electric wires In greater profusion than can be observed on any corner In Scranton, the Electric City of tho United States. Perhaps his greatest revelation was a description of a Japanese house In terior, or, rather, Its lack of things to be described. Americans can scarcely conceive of a house without beds, chairs, ornaments or carpets, yet the Japs do without any of these, and get along very nicely, too. They eat, sleep and sit on the floor, which requires that It and Its matting shall be scrupul ously clean. Cleanliness, paid Mr. Sturges, Is one of the chief character istics of these people, personally and In their surroundings. Yokahama, the seaport, and Toklo (Yeddo), the capital and principal in land city of Japan, furnished the chief material of the lecture, which Included concise references to the bazaars, temples, pastimes, character, govern ment, religion In fact, an hundred sub Jedts. After Mr. Sturges had finished he was accorded honest congratulations upon his success as an entertaining speaker, and it would not be surprising If his re maining talks have to be given in a more spacious auditorium. The pro ceeds ot the series will be devoted to the church. SOUTH SIDKEWS. The Scranton Saengerrunde will meet at their hall this evening.

In an article on Proprietary remedies, which appeared In a recent Issue of the "St. Louis, Mo., Medical Brief," Prof. Willard II. Morse, M. D. K. IS. S. Sc.. of Westtleld, N. J., says: "One notable in stance in point of elllcacy is offered by Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy which has earned reputuVn as curative of Brlght's disease and other affections of the kidneys." In concluding the article. Dr. Morse says: "Manifestly, therefore, treat ment of the kidneys and bladder, both preventive and curative, calls primarily for the exclusion of nil factors causative of functional derangements. Diseases of the kidneys demand re-establishmenta of normal functions, destruction of the micro organism causing the disease, and repair of the ravages. These three demands ore fulfilled by Dr. David Kennedy's Favor ite Remedy It reinstates and regulates tho renul functions, It destroys the casual germ, and repairs the broken down tis sues." Dr. David Kenntley's Favorite Remedy Is an unfailing specific for such diseases as rheumatism, neuralgia, biliousness, dyspepsia, kidney and liver complaints. In Brlght's disease, diabetes, urinary troubles and the sickness peculiar to wo men, it cures where all else falls. ESTABLISHED 1870. GILHOOL'S CARRIAGE WORKS. Carriages. BiminosB Wagons, ReDairlne.

I'roper Nourishment Enabled . the Author to Live Until the Comple tloa of Bla Boek. Tho fortitude shown by General Grant in writing the second volume of his per sonal memoirs while he was literally on his deathbed, excels even the remarkable courage exhibited by this famous soldier in his many achievements on the field of battle. Col. J-'red Grant, speaking of bis father'! last illness, says: "During the last four months of hit sickness, the principal food of my father, Gen. Grant, was liovinlne and milk; and It was the use of this incomparable food alone that enabled him to finish the second volume of his personal memoirs." Dr. T. H. Douglas, Gen. Grant's physi cian and friend, cordially indorsed the above statement. What Bovlnine did for Gen. Grant It has done, and Is now doing, for thousands every day. It Is the most wonderful con centration Into a small bulk of all the life-giving, muscle, flesh, and blood-making elements, of lean, raw meat ever pro duced. It Is in no way a medicine, simply a food Invigorant, that by its strengthening qualities gives the worn-out or disordered vital centres of the body an Impetus that again starts them performing their natu ral functions. It is indorsed by eminent physicians everywhere, aud blessed by thousands whose lives It has actually saved. To neglect to use this wonderful food In all cases of debility, wasting discasei, overwork, stomach and nerve diseases, or for weak infants, chronic Invalids, loss of vitality in old age, Is to throw away one of the greatest chances of bavluit life.
