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

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. A

promised to stay at home evenings;
but he failed to keep his promise, and

man Roberts, who gave him a severe
reprimand. The police say they will
break up this playing, however, even
If some of the offenders must be sent
to Jail.

student at the Union eemlnary and his
application caused much discussion.
Rev. James McLeod stated that tho
general assembly disavowed the Union
seminary and declined to receive any
reports until they were satisfied that
proper relations -were made, and he
moved that the application He on the
table. Rev. . Charles. E. Robinson
pointed out that there was a dagger of
creating a precedent ns a student tinder
his charge, who Intended to enter the
missionary field, was now In the Union
seminary. -.. '
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. Dr.
Stewart, of Towandn; Subsequently
Mr. Corser was examined in his knowl
edge of Hebrew and arts and sciences,
and was reported to have passed satis
factorily, and was granted permis
sion to-preach at Bernlce during his
vacation.
Rev. W. E. Fnulkner npplled that his
connection with the Mountain Top
church be dissolved on the first Sunday
In May.., F. A. Johnson, a commissioner
from the church, reported the wishes of
the congregation, and the request was

LECTURE OF E. B. 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.

A REMEDY OF GREAT VALVE.
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.

GENERAL GRANT.
How Near His Personal Memoirs
. Came to be Lost.
A Valuable History Written by Dying
Man. 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.
