That the i-ffortH put forth In this humble way have been blessed, Is evident on every side. The Increased Interest taken In the. meetings, and the great numbers that have attended them during the past year are indisputable evidences of tile divine sanction of the work. That it has been put Into the minds of the charitable citizens of Summon to give libeially of their means towards the sup port of the mission.

Its timely receipt has been the means of en abling the committee to report the debt of the mission entirely provided for. This brief report would not be com plete without reference to 'the untiring and etllelent services of the superintend ent nmf his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn. May their lives lie re-consecrated to the blessed work they are called upon to perform, that many more poor unfortu nate souls may see the blessings of a Christian experience through the efforts put forth by them In the Scranton Rescue mission. liiitber Keller, president: William Mc Clave, vice-president; W.

George C. .Sanborn, the superintend ent of the mission, thus reviews the work done during the year: The statistics of the fifth year's work prove It to have been one of the best since the opening of the mission, and while the numbers attending may have been less than In some years, yet the re sults have been the most satisfactory of any year. Of those starting In a Christian life, a larger per cent, than ever before have proved faithful to Him who called them out of nature's darkness into ills marvel ous light. More homes have been bright ened, more needy ones relieved and more employed secured for men and women than over before. Families have been united and brought in touch with the mission and churches, and Individuals helped In many ways. After all that can bo said of tills work, the best evidence of what it has done and Is now doing can be obtained by visiting us some night and hearing the (testimonies of those who have been saved and are being kept by the power of God. The good accomplished by this mission can neither lie told nor estimated, but the committee enter upon another year's work with the assuranco that the Scran ton mission Is ono of the best paying In stitutions of the city, and well deserving the sympathy and support of Uh citizens. Many converts have conducted services for us during the year. We appreciate their help, and they are always ready to help In any way they can. Their talks, as well as their testimonies, have reached the hearts of many. May God bless them and their labor of love for their Saviour and Redeemer. WORK DONE DI'RING. THE YEAR. Often during the year our meetings have been brightened and tho workers en couraged by the talks and' testimonies of commercial men who have visited the mission, and wo assure them that there Is always a hearty welcome for all commer cial men at the Scranton mission. One week In October some of the city pastors conducted our services, and we were greatly blessed by their help and are planning for other similar meetings. During one week In November the otll cers of tho Young Women's Christian as sociation, with some of the city mission aries, assisted In tho meetings, and we shall soon be seeking their help again.' We wish to return our thanks to them nt this time. Secretary F. W. Pearsall, of the Rail road Young Men's Christian association, continues in charge of the Wednesday evening meetings. Wo are always glad to have him with us, for his talks are practical and helpful. Miss Florence Weir, our organist and visitor, has organized a children's choir, which wo believe will lie an attractive feature In the work of the coming year. A Mothers' Sewing society will ulso be organized, and all garments made will bo distributed to needy persons. The anniversaries of tho converts havo been pleasant as well as prolltable L'utli erings. Our missionary convert, Rev. Joseph Thlpps, Is doing a grand work In Ills mis sion Held In Africa, and We believe many of those natives will praise God that our brother over came among them. For fourteen consecutive Sunday after noons, with the help of our workers, ser vices were conducted at Nay Aug fulla. The nudiences numbered from MO to 1,000 people, and many expressed their regret when, on account of the cold weather, we were obliged to discontinue them. We are planning for Blmllur work the coming summer. THANKS ARE RETURNED. In closing, the commltteo and superin tendent desire to return thanks to all who In any way may have assisted In out work tho past year, and trust that the coming year, with your Continued assist ance, will be the best In tho mission's history. Wo return our thanks for nil donations of fuel, clothing, food und reading mat ter rcctdvuU duMng the year. The superintendent has an office In tho building and Is thus enabled to give ad vice and elicourugetnent to those needing It, and such help as he can lit procuring employment for those who show a dispo sition to live honest and Industrious lives, Gospel meetings are held evcrj even ing at S, all of which are tinder the direct supervision of the superintendent. Meet ings have been held every night since the mission was opened, Feb. II, ISHl. A cordial Invltntlon Is extended to nil to attend any of the meetings at the mis sion, that they may see for themselves some of the good being accomplished and better understand tho nature of this win !:. The superintendent or his assistant can always be found at the mission, and will be pleased to show any one through the building, and also give any Information desired rcL'ardlng tho work.

FAIR PLAY AT THEATRES. II' Women Remove Their Huts .Men Shouldn't !o Out. The ono great and nil-Important fact in connection with theater etiquette for women to lourn, says the Philadelphia Press, is never to wear anything on or In their heads that will obstruct a view of the stage. Hut If hats are to be put down, let us by all means settle It at once whether or no a mini Is to go out betWeen the nets. lie who practices this hulnt Is the,verlest boor, apd, since women liuve adopted the custom of tak ing oil' their headgear, the moving man is mure than ever an Intolerable nuis ance. Women have no place to put their h'uts save in their laps, and, plowing their way. In and out, the restless crea ture sweeps hat ornaments with his ounttnlls, often obllgos'her to strfnd tip, her n.rms full, lo let him pass, and quite as often knocks over her possession .ind brut, illy mlns a cosily piece of inllll fiery. ,- , The man who accompanies a woman to the theater- his wife, mother, sister or friend, plainly announces that he beats no shadow of a title to the name gentleman by leaving her. If he leaves his seat at all, he should not come back to it again. Then the public recognizes that boredom; Illness or some engage ment drove him forth, and in that event Ills feminine companion goes with him. If he' Is sitting between aisles, and wishes water or a programme, an usher will rferve him. A gentleman who is alone or with men friends, und possessing an aisle seat, Is, of couise, at liberty lo come and no as he likes, but If he occupies a seat with strangers on either side, and decides to o out for any reason, he will apologize for the trouble caused, make his way out and then take In the rest of the play to stand nt the back. He must do this because the women whom be most inconveniences, aio perfectly In his power. A woman cannot ask a man not to glide In and out of his place, and Just ns qften as "women fall In consideration by wearing high hats do men offend by their con stant change ol base. It Is more offen sive In men because they have been the leaders of the hat crusade, and now that plumes have come down one good turn deserves another. FAMOUS OLD PEOPLE. .tli. Kcidy, of Wyoming mid Ml. Thoinp-on, Horn in I'ittston. Fiom the Plttston Item. "Grandmother" Reidy, of Wyoming, recenllj passed the KiCth milestone In the journej of life. She lives with the family of her son, Tliomas Reidy, of that place, and of the three genera tions of the Reidy household she lias enjoyed the best of health during the present winter. The date of Mrs. Reldy's birth is well authenticated. She was born In Ireland and the greater part of her life was spent in that beau tiful Isle. The old lady retains possession of all her faculties, with the exception of u slight defect of hearing. Her memory of events is remarkably accurate and her sight Is so good that she has no use for spectacles to enable her to en joy her favorite form of recreation that of reading. She appears younger than most women of 70 years, Another case of remarkable longevity is lliat of Isaac Thompson, who was born In Plttston, Nov'. IS, 179(1. He is now a rcslikut of Rochelle, 111. Con cerning tills remarkable man, the Ro chelle Register had a long article pub lished shortly after he had celebrated his hundredth birthday anniversary. Ills birthday was celebrated In the presence of a large company of friends, and found the old gentleman hale and hearty and with such a steady hand that lie was able to shave himself as clean as the average man of half his years can do. Mr. Thompson's seven surviving children nie Mrs. Matilda Labar, Mr. C. "W. Thompson and Mrs. 1... T. LSean, of Scranton, and Mrs. II. C. Dewey, of Plttston. Old Mr. Thompson's father was a Scotch Presbyterian from the North of Iteluud and his mother's par ents were Quakers. He was brought up. on the farm, living llfly-elght years there. On June IS, lSla', he was married to Miss .Mai la Wilcox, and fifteen chil dren were horn to them. They lived to gether for sixty-seven years, she dying on April 2."j, 18b.r, at the advanced age ol H2. In lSft Mr. Thompson went West, returned East for a short while, and two years later took up his per manent residence In Illinois, living on ills son's farm. He was always a Whig or Republican In politics, and cast his Inst vote for John Quincy Adams tor piesldent. Last November lie was so anxious to vote for McKinley that lie was driven to the polls in a sever." storm. He was only a. little over 18 yeni'b of age when the war of 1S12 broke out, but toward the close ot the wur wus drafted and served thirty days, th" war ending before he was called upon to enter a battle. He has never drank any liquor since he was a boy, and to his temperate habits is In part uscrlbed his fine physi cal condition on his 100th blrthiluy. He has been connected wllh the Methodist church for stventy-elght years and for twenty-live ytnrs wa.i supoilntendent of a Sunday school In Plttston. ltlieuiiintisiu Cured in a Day.
