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

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
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
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
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

FAIR PLAY AT THEATRES.

The ono great and nil-Important fact
in connection with theater etiquette for

Press, is never to wear anything on or

down, let us by all means settle It at

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

Mr. "Watson Is one of the cleverest

or the Gilt Edge Club," opens the bull.
Tlie specialties follow: Watson, Hlaek,
Dupree and nil do something clever
and the show closes with a line sei les
of "living pictures." The musical
sketch Is wearisome. The costumes und
dancing of the ladles are something
bright and new, the Jockey song anil
