A largo ball of white clover blos soms, another of white and put pic vio lets, together with masses of palms and green branches, ropes and sprays of almond nnd apple blossoms and filmy draperies of every conceivable Into made a wonderful color effect.

BRILLIANT LECTURE IN BICYCLE HOUSE DELIVERED BY PROFESSOR H. D. WINCHESTER. His Topic Wns "In nn Old Castlo". Lectuie Wns One of the Most De lightful Events in tho Literary History of Scranton The Old Cas tlo Referred to Wns Ludlow, Around Which So Much English History Clings Notables Asso ciated with It. A large and cultured nudlence list ened last evening to Professor II. D. Winchester, of Wosleyan university, In his famous lectuie, "In an Old Castle," given under tho auspices of Asbury church, of Cireen Ridge, In tho Bicycle club house. It was with out doubt one of the most thoroughly delightful events in the literary history of Scranton. Professor Winchester's vast attainments, his exquisite diction and more than all his happy faculty of weaving historical Intciest Into a tale of centuries gone by captivated the nudlence. The "old castle" Is Ludlow, tho spot rich In tradition, famous In the Wnrs of the Roses, rich in history, for here unhappv Catherine, of Aragon spent some of her wretched days, leaving the name of Catherine's tower to pre seive her memory; and here were the two boy princes beforo they went to the Tower. In tho sixteenth century Ludlow Castlo was tho seat of the Prince of Wales. In 155S Queen Elizabeth sent Sir Henry Sidney to dwell therein, nnd In the succeeding fifty icaia it was the center of great events. The speaker described the old castle and the luxury of the times when tho silver and gold plate on a nobleman's table was worth $73,000, and when In doublets of velvet, slashings of satin, velvet shoes with rubles In tho buckles nnd a cloud of laro lace gushing forth, tho com tiers of the daj stepped down tho stately hulls. Yet were they not only couitleis but the eonquerois of the world, the flower of chlvahy. LAND riTLL OF JEWELS. "Gold and Jewels; why not?" naively asked the spal;er. "What else were they for, when the land was full of them and twenty-five millions of ti ens ure came in on one vessel. The ladies, far bo It from me to describe their attire, but we can believe they kept will In ndvanco of tho men as they do yet. Any school giil lemembeis that Queen Elizabeth had "!,000 chesses In her vvnichobc " A description of the Sldnejs vu-s then given, paitlculaiiy of Ladv Mary, sister of tho Ill-fated Lady Jane Orey, and her brother. Lord Loleestet, Earl of Dudley, whom Elizabeth, tho wo man, loved. If Elizabeth, the Queen, denied her hand. A wondeirully vivid portrait of Leicester was then given tho man who had seen his noaiest lolutlves peilsh on the scaffold, and who mn have allowed his wariness to degonoiato into Intrigue: who killed Amv Robsart, and poisoned the Earl of Essex, and yet whom Sponsor could not have called tho Prince Aithur of his 'Tally Queen," had ho been all his enemies had said. Tho brief meteor-like life of Mary SIdne.v's son, Sir Philip, the "pattern gentleman" of his times, was pictured with deft touches dying as he did at 3.', and calling forth that marvolour obituary In which he is ilesciibed as one boaiing "tho lineaments of the Gospel." Maiy Sidney, his sister, with all her raio giaces, wasal-o portrayed, and that gieatest of all epitaphs was quoted Vinlriiioath this s.ible hearse Lies the subjict of all trse Slilnev's slstei, Pembroke' mother. Dentil ore thnu Inst laln another Lorn nod and fair and good as she Time shall thiow a dirt nt thee." PFRITY Or SIDNEY'S AFFECTION. Considerable paco was devoted to a porttalt of Penelope Doveieaux, Sir Philip Sidney's "Stella" In the sonnets of "Astiophel nnd Stella," and his oailv love so III fated, and so unhappy In her marriage to another The put Ity of Sldnoj's affection was empha sized. Then followed a beautiful tri bute to Sii Walter Raleigh, who ac complished tho whole orbit of human endeavor and achlevment, and a graphic view wns given of the gieat navigators of tho times, including Frobishor, Dinke and Grenvillo. A review of tho literary beacons ot the ago was gen. Including a vivid porttalt of Ron Jonson. Spenser, a Sluikcspeato play on Its "flist night," and lastly of John Milton, in connec tion with whom tho speaker uttoied tho clever epigram that then "tho Pur itans lost poetiy and the poets lost puilty." The final picture was of a leceptlon In this old castle to tho Eail of Uildge water. after which tho hcene closed with a final glimpse only of Samuel Butler In his "chamber ovei tho gate" penning his satlie of "Hudlbras." The lectuie was one that held tho audience bieathless with Interest. AETER THE CELEBRATION. Committee Wns in a Congratulatory Mood and Justly So.

BUTTER! ed off without a single Jar and the com mittee after surveying the celebration In tho quiet of yesterday was in an exceedingly congratulatory mood. One thing that added to the com mittee's gratification wns tint It was also financially successful.

"President Truesdnlo, of the Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western com pany, takes an optimistic view of the anthracite coal trade, and while ho docs not say there w 111 be no cutting of coal prices by his compuny, ho gives tho Impression that as far as he Is con cerned, prices will be maintained," says the Philadelphia Press "The outlook Is encouraging, and while he has only boon at tho head of this conipanv for n short time, he Is considering a num ber of important lmpiovements. "Mr. Truesdnle In an affable manner spoke In well-measured words of tho futuie of the companj. and he thought tho outlook was encouiaglng. Ho dwelt on closer relations between coal com panies and said there was no trust, but the Individual coal operators would bo looked after and the main thing would bo the keeping of the production down so as not to exceed the demand." WILL BE NO ROWDYISM Firemen's Convention Here to Be Conducted on a New Plan. Delegates Will Readily Tall in Line. Both tho executive and general com mittees of the fli omen's fair met yes terday, the foimcr In the afternoon at Chief Hlckoy's ofllce, and the lat ter In the evening at the common coun cil chambei. At the meeting of the executive com mittee tho main matter discussed was tho best moans of combating the feel ing that has spread that a lliemen's state convention Is undesirable, on th ground thnt the crowd thnt will at tend Is a dt-cldedlv lively one. to put It mildlv. Tho committee realized that there was no denjlng that tho dole gates came for a good time and insist on having It. hut It was tho expeilenco of those of the committee who have attended these annual gatherings th it tho vlsltnts invailably only follow out the programme that Is auanged for them. It a word, the delegates did Just what they wore encouraged to do by their onteitalnois. The ScTanton committee pioposes to see to It that the public at laigo will have no cause to complain ot tho con duct of those who will attend the con vention hoio. Fliomon. the committee believes, are Just like an other mn and can be entottalnid Just like other delegates are entertained. Tln-io will be enough of this kind of entertain ment piovlded to leave no time for the objectionable kind Besides this, th local fliomon will bo under strict '.i sti actions to discourage Instead of en couiaglng uny carrvings-on that will not be appioved by the most conflimed lover of jieui e and quiet. Tho delegates will bo given to un derstand nt tho outset and evc'l bofoio they tome hero that Scianton Intends to show them somothlns new In tho vr of entertainment and theio Is no question but that thev llie.v will leadllj fall In with the committee's Idea. 'the fact that C D. Vt'egman, one of Scranton's most ptmnlnent business men, Is nt the head of the commitfo Is assui.ince that Scranton need fool no wouy about the convention leaving any veiy undesirable fcatuic. At tho meeting 01 the goneial com mittee theio was little business of pub lic Impoitnino transacted The re ports of tho vailous sub-committees nnd delegates from the dlffeieut com panies showed eneoiuaslng progioss and no end of enthusiasm In tho com lug fair. WOLFF IS A CLEVER SWINDLER. Succeeded in Getting S75 of Monis Svvnrtzkopf s Money. Tho grand Jury esterdav found a tiuo bill against S. Wolff, who on June 12 swindled Moirls Svvnrtzkopf. of Penn avenue, out of $73. On the day in cimstlnii Wolff entered SwaiU kopf s stoie and after rcpu-sentlng that ho was an ajent in the employ of H.

He had the diaft cashed at the First National bank and when tho latter scut it to Now York tor collection It was returned with the information that theio was no such firm doing business In New Yoik as Selgel & Co.

Write for Studen rill Booklet to the Bucaeu-Rumford Co., scranton, Pa. . THEY WERE SENT TO FIX THE WIRE AN OLD GAME SUCCESSFULLY WORKED ON THE HILL. Two Crooks Prctondlng to Bo Elec tricians Gain Entrance to a Houso nnd Ransack All the Unlocked Rooms on tho Second Flooi Thoy Secured a Gold Watch and Had They Made a Moro Careful Search Would Have Found Many Other Valuables. It would seem tho crooks never in tend to let up on the "hill" district. Now It Is a pair of sneak thieves work ing tho old game of having been sent to do some "fixing up" about tho house. Yesterday they got away with a gold watch lrom the homo of a pi eminent resident of that badly-burglared tetril tory. About 8 o'clock In tho morning two men having the appearance of mechan ics and carrying a few tools nnd a coll of Insulated wire, called at the houso in question. They inquired If nuch and such a party lived there and being answered In the affirmative stated that they understood tho electric lights wero not working properly and thoy had been sent by the company to IK them up. FORTUNE FWORED THEM. It so happened that the electric wir ing was out of order, a number ot th- Incandescent lamps having been cut off by a "lik oak" somewhere or other. The woman of the house supposed that her husband had notified the electric light company of tho trouble, and no ticing nothing suspicious inthe action of the men teadllv admitted them and explained nt length the trouble. The pseudo electricians fumbled away for some thro nt the s.v Itches and connections, but as the ladv of tho houo stood by all tho time they had no opportunity of doing th" leal work thoy had come for. Thoy made an excuo for their Inability to locate tho trouble by saving they wer slwt ot some necessary tools and wont away stating that they would return direct ly with the needed Implements. They were as good as their word In lespect to coming back At 11 o'clock they came ngaln, wero admitted by a servant, and, without waiting to be nnnounccd pioceeded to the upper floor of the house, wheie they had been pieviously engaged. HAD THEIR LITTLE JOKE. In the course of half and hour thoy wont away, telling the gltl wha let them out that she might toll Mis. "the wit os weie all light, now." Some time later v.iien the lady of the houso went upstalis to veilfy the statement she discovered that every unlocked loom had been innsacked. An Inventory showed only a gold watch missing. The thieves had wait ed an opportunity when the second flooi was left to themselves and then made a hasty lound ol the rooms. Had theli search been careful they woul 1 have secuted a big haul, as th"ie was consldeiable jewelry and other valu ables stowed away In the rooms that woio entered. Chief of Police Robllug was nottflc 1 so that he might at least warn olher.3 against the ciooks. The chief wis te quested to keep fiom the newspapeis the name of the party who was visUi J. DEATH Or ABRAM THOMAS. Asphyxiated in tho Biistol House at Wilkes-Barrc. Abi.im Thomas, a lesidonl of Nantl coko, was found dead In bed at S. in o'clock jesterday morning in the Btls tol houso, on Public squnie. Wllkos Ba rte Thomas boaided with Ml and Mis. Lewis Richards. In Nantlcolcc, and came to Scianton on Thuisday and witnessed the parade. Illuminat ing gas, which pouied Horn an open Jet, was the cause of his death After the domonstiatlon Thomas went to the home of his iclativcs, at 217 Mullein sticet, West Scranton, and theio spent tho evening, leaving this city on the 10.41 Delaware and Hudson tialn. Retort going away ho Informed his father, Llewelbn Thomas, that if ho did not letum to the houso he would go to Wllk.es-Harrc and theio spend tho night befoic leturning to Nnntlcoke. As lai as can be learned Thomas could have had no motive for ending Ills life, and the Indications are strong that his death was accidental. Thomas' tathei went to Wilkes Bane yesterday and made arrange ments for the tiansfei of the remains to this city. They will airlve some time this morning and be icmoved to the family residence, on Mullein stieet by Undei taker Tague Deceased was about -M years of age, and left this 1 Ity on Feb. 18, when he went to Nanticoke. He was a brother of Miss Elizabeth Thomas (Llllle Mor ganog), soloist at Elm Park chuich. The funeral will piobably be held on Monday afternoon and interment will be made In Forest Hill cemetery. THE RILEY RECITAL. What the Elmiia Adveitlser Says About Him. James Whltcomb Riley's coming to the Lyceum on next Tuesday evening is awaited with vivid interest. Thj sale ot seats will begin this morning. The Elmlra Advertiser says: "As he uttered a bit of fun his larg') bluo eyes were gleaming with a merry twinkle which appealed to the audience In an Irreslstnble manner. His man ner of delivery In impersonating tho Indinna farmer was so natuial and life like that one began to feel two personalities were existing in Mr. Riley This elocutional y talent waa finely demonstrated In the object lesson given the children In the country school by a city Instructor. "The poet recited tho beautiful lines, 'Down at Old Aunt Mary's,' and gave the amusing story of the war veteran, who went to Washington to see nbout a pension and there was entertulned In great style by an old friend.
