MARYSVILLE Prayer Meeting Held for the Penniy Yard Employes Last Night Rp-'-in! CMT'snonrtonCi. Marysville. April 17.—Last night a prayer meeting was held, in connection with the Hilhs evangelistic campaigu, , in the local Pennsylvania freight yards j for the yard employes. Members of the evangelistic party conducted the I meeting. The subject of Evangelist Hillis' dis course last was 'The Reception of Jesus." He referred to the recep tion as the manner in which Jesus is received into the hearts of we'mortals. 'Among other things, he said: '"Jesus | is given the same reception as an itin- j erant tramp, whose wares you do not ! desire. He knocks at your door, bat I you do not heed Him. Jesus knocks at your heart, but many of you refuse to receive Him." He declared that Jesus' ! Christ is given the back seat for cards i and dancing. Until last evening's! meetings 345 converts had responded •to the evangelist's call and had hit the ]•' sawdust trail." Most of these are men. many of them being emploves in the local yards of the Pennsylvania railroad. From this fact, the revival is becoming to be known as "the men's revival." The funeral of John Dice, who died ! here on Monday afternoon, was held | yesterday. He was buried in the frier's Point cemetery. Church services in the local churches to-morrow as follows: M.

SAYS EXPERT He Noticed Tendency to Spread Out in New Building and Commended It —Standard Set by Legislative Ac tion Is Needed "Harrisburg has its opportunity now to correct housing conditions, the chief fault being overcrowding," said John Ihlder. field secretary of the National Housing Association, at a meeting in the public library auditorium last even ing after completing a two-day inspec tion of the citv. Mr. Ihlder said he noticed a tenden cy to spread out in the houses being built here this spring in his advocacy of the single family dwelling. He was particularly pleased with a row of dwellings on the Cameron extension. He said that little could be done unless there were better state laws enacted as officials could do nothing unless there is a standard to go by. A glimpse into Harrisburg °s back yards destroyed the impression that the city was "dressed up." said the ex pert. He wanted to know why every week in this city is not a.cle&nup week. He found that parts of the Seventh ward near the railroad were worse than Sibletown, he said. Mayor Roysl introduced the speaker to a representative audience. It was the only public appearance of the ex pert in his two-day visit to Harrisburg. He lunched with the Board of Direc tors of the Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce yesterday and later in tbe afternoon held a conference with city and county officials. Mr. Ihlder was brought to Harrisburg under the joint auspices of the Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce, the Civic Club of Harris burg and the Associated Charities. On his to the various parts of the citv he was accompanied by Dr. J. M. J. Raunick, city health officer, and John Molitor, chief of the State Bu reau of Housing. During the inspection he took many photographs which he used last night in bringing out the various points of his talk. Mr. Ihlder suggested that stock com panies restricted to a certain dividend be organized to build and manage workingmen 's homes. The Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce will secure cop ies of the model housing law of the Russel Safe foundation and make an ef fort to correct conditions here by fol lowing that and keeping in touch with the National Housing Association.

By treaty aad by consent and by her situation Turkey was given control of this strait Strange to say, In modern times the first sblp of war that ever passed through flew tbe flag of America.

BLUNDERING REPORTERS. Mistakes That Mangled the Speakers' Words snd Peelings. "Drunkenness Is folly!" earnestly ex elslmed Bishop Matree In the bouse of lorda on a celebrated occasion. How horrified wns the prelate to read in the papers next morning tbat he had given utterance to the very bacchanalian sen timent. "Drunkenness is Jolly!" Lord Salisbury wns a master phrase msker. but one of his beet points was spoiled when n careless reporter turned his reference to "manacles and Mani toba" Into the meaningless "manacles and men at the bar." Sir William Harcourt waa badly mis quoted once. "Great Is Diana of ths Ephesians!" he exclaimed upon tbe platform, but one pnper bad It: "Great Dinah! What a farce is this!" I.aek of knowledge of familiar quo tations Is a prolific source of mlsreport lng. For Instance, n speaker once made use ,of tbe well known lines from Mil ton's "L'Allegro:" But come, thou goddess, fair snd free. In heaven yclept Euphrosyne. The brilliant reporter deputed to "take blm down" was In despair, ne could not make bend or rail of this mysterious utterance.

Henry, frequently played and on one occasion nearly struck by accident his tutor with a | club, whereupon he coolly remarked. "Had I done so I had but paid my debts." Charles 1. was playing golf when he received the news af the Irish rebellion. James, duke of York, after ward James 11., was another ardent player.

The official statements of late have mentioned detached en gagement*. in which some local suc cesses have been claimed. Newspaper dispatches from Petrograd are similarly restricted. It appears probable. h«*- ever, that the Russians have custatnqd at least a temporary check Thiols in dicated by the statement in the latest official Petrograd report concerning the bad condition of the roads, which bin ders military operation?. A Paris dispatch from Rome says the belief is general in the Italian capital that Austria will attack Italy, should that country's determination to enter the war became evident. It is added that this possibility is viewed com placently on account of the strong con centration of Italian troops along the border. England is expecting another raid by German airships, following three at tacks in rapid succession. The German aerial attack yesterday on Amiens, France, resulted In the killing of seven persons and wounding of eight. A report published by a Prussian newspaper that Grand Duke Nicholas, Russian commander-in-chief, has been shot in the abdomen by General Baron Sievers, commander of the Russian Tenth army, which was defeated and driven from East Prussia last Febru ary.. The general is said to have com j mitted suicide. There is no confirma , tion of this report, official er otherwise, i from any other source. The official German statement of to i day, evidently referring to yesterday's 1 raid over England by a German aero ' plane, says shells were dropped on Greenwich, in the metropolitan district of London. Dispatches from London yesterday said the aeroplane ap proached no nearer than thirty miles from the city. Unofficial advices from Berlin are that considerable damage war. done ~by the Zeppelins which raid ed England twice this week and that officers and men on British patrol boats were killed or wounded. The French Ministry of Marine an ! nouncea further naval operations against the Turkish forces which pro ceeded against Egypt. It is said a ; French battleship shelled a Turkish po sition near the Egyptian city of £l - which is close to the border of Palestine. There were no important engage ments in France yesterday and in the ! east operations are being delayed by j the spring thaw. The Berlin official ! announcement says a small position i near Ami was lost to the allies, but ! that other engagements resulted the ; advantage of the Germans. The Harrisburg Polyclinic Dispensary I cvill be open daily except Sunday at ; 3 p. ra., at its new location, Front and 1 Harris streets, for the free treatment of j the worthy poor.
