•Successful Branches of the Institute and Their Instructors. THE LECTURE COURSE Gymnasium Practice, for All Ages and Conditions— Among the Churches. The Institute of St. John's Episcopal Church has proved a valuable adjunct to the church since the Rev. E. L. Stoddard. Ph. D., perfected the movement in 1S97. The objects are instruction and entertain ment. In both it has been successful as many will testify. To-day It enjoys con siderable prosperity and Is in better shape than it ever was. All the classes are en joying prosperity from the latest reports. The instructors In the various branches are: Applied Design, Miss Lillian Pitcher; Embroidery,-; Senior Gymnasium Class, Mr. H. W. Worth; Junior Gymna sium Class, Mr. H. W.Worth; Boys' Gym nasium Class. - -; Ladles' Gymna sium Class, - -; Boxing, Mr. J. L. Kirk; Wrestling, Mr. C. L.

St. John’s Institute closed Its third year on Sept. 30th after a very successful sea son. The classes were larger, and the work was carried forward with greater enthusiasm than ever before. The Insti tute now apperas to be a permanent insti tution of the parish, and we are glad to say that from present indications its fourth year bids fair to be the best in its history. By the kindness of those who have offered to serve on its staff of in structors it is able to continue most of the classes of last year and also to add sev eral others which it is believed will In crease the value of the Institute to its friends. i ickets—Members of all classes, except the Lecture Course, must have the Insti tute ticket. This ticket is given gratis to the members of the Church Guilds. The Institute year begins October 1, and ends September 30. All Classes are open to both men and women except where otherwise specified, and also are open to the public until the limit of membership has been reached. Those wishing to join any of the classes are requested to hand their names to Mr. Forbes, No. 29 Clifton Place. There will be a course of six lectures, given, with one exception, on the third Tuesday evening of the month, beginning (November 13. The first year in applied design work, for beginners, starts with free hand drawing. As facility is gained students are requred to make smple or original de signs, geometrical figures at first, and lat er as the course develops introducing con ventionalized flowers, leaves or other ob jects of a decorative character. In the advanced classes painting and the prin ciples of coloring are taught. The object of the whole course Is to show how artis tic forms may be adapted to designs for wall paper, stained glass, woven fabrics and the like. Eye and hand are thorough ly trained, and students are taught how to use their skill and knowledge in beau tifying their immediate surroundings. Nearly every lady can embroider after a fashion, but not all are expert. A win ter's work at this fascinating art will give students a knowledge of the different stitches in use, and also instruction in the principles of needle coloring. A great many people can take pictures, but not a great many can take them well; amateur work Is too often very amateur ish. We are fortunate in having secured an experienced photographer to take charge of this class, and we hope that the opportunity thus offered will not be over looked. The use of the flash light will be 4aught, also developing in all its forms, toning, printing, mounting, and finishing, In addition to the regular fee for this class there will be a small charge for chemicals. me senior uymnasium Class is open to young men who have had considerable experience in gymnasium work. Instruc tion is given in the use of dumb bells, Indian clubs, wands, and the usual ap paratus. The Junior Gymnasium Class is open to young men who are less advanced in gym nasium athletics. The instruction is of the same character as the above, but less dif ficult. The Boys’ Gymnasium Class is designed tor boys from twelve to fifteen years of age. The exercises will be such ae will build up strong bodies. The Ladies’ Gymnasium Class will open as soon as twenty-five ladies hand in their names. The course of Instruction will in clude simple military drills, body building exercises, fancy drills with dumb bells, Indian clubs, and wands. The Boxing Class, which was so success ful last year will be continued through the Winter on the same lines as before. The Wrestling Class is one of the most ancient as well as one of the most Inter esting of athletic sports. The instructor Is a trained athlete, a graduate of Yale college, and may be expected to make this class very popular. Single and double entry bookkeeping will be thoroughly taught. The value of stenography Is too well known to need any comment. The class ■will open as soon as a sufficient number Indicate a desire to join. Languages are also taught for a nomi nal sum. There are aled classes in Eng lish literature and composition. EXPERIENCE SUPPER. Wayno Street Reformed Church Had a Pleasant Evening.

A UNIVERSAL ORDER It Now Numbers Over Seven Thousand Religious — Among the Churches. j In the 142 houses of the Sodciety of the | Sacred Heart, which are in all parts of I the civilized world except the continent I Asia, the centenary of the society was celebrated last Wednesday, November 21. In New York the anniversary was observ ed by a reunion of the alumnae of the Manhattanville convent, who assembled to the number of 400 at the convent atSt. Nicholas and Convent avenues. The alumnae met by invitation, as they have no organization, although they hold a re union annually in the spring. On Wednes day the ceremonies of the centenary be gan with a solemn pontificial high mass, at which Archbishop Corrigan, was the celebrandt. The chapel of the convent was filled with the present pupils and the alumnae, the numerous clergy who came to take part in the anniversary observ ances, and the nuns of the convent. The 250 pupils ^marched into the chapel, all in white dresses and wearing white veils. The assistant priest at the Mass was Mgr. Mooney, Vicar-General;, the deacon was the Rev. James W. Pow*er; the sub deacon, the Rev. E. F. Slattery; the mas ters of ceremonies were the Rev. Jas. N. Connolly, Archbishop Corrigan’s secre tary, and the Rev. Thomas F. Myhan. The Rev. James McGean and the Rev. W. L. Penny were honorary deacons. The Rev. Thomas J. Campbell, S. J., read a paper on “The Higher Education of Wom en,” with especial attention to the work of the founder of the Society of the Sacred Heart, Mme. Sophie Barat, who establish ed the society in 1800, when she was 21 years old. She lived to be 85 years old, and established one house for every year ui xler me. There are now 7,000 religious in the society, 12,000 pupils in the convent schools and 20,000 pupils in the free schools. The first house of the society in -New York was in Houston street. The Manhattan viile convent was established there in 1847, being transferred from Astoria. Father Campbell in the course of his address said:— “The world ia very much exercised at present over what it is pleased to con sider its magnanimous and novel concep tion of the higher education of womep. Never was so much money expended in a multiplicity of schemes to further it, never was so much of what, by courtesy, may be callecf thought bestowed to per fect it, and in view of all that was ex pected. never were such unsatisfactory re sults obtained. It could not be otherwise, for all the splendid endeavors are one sided, ill-advised and incomplete. “It is beyond peradventure true that the scholastic triumphs which constitute the glory of the nuns of former days have failed of accomplishment in our own. But the blame is to be put where It belongs. It is the fault of the age in which we live. It is a threefold com bination of shirking of labor, a squan dering of time in frivolous occupations and an unconquerable dread of even temporary seclusion from the world. “Much is said about the necessity of convents adapting themselves more than they do to the requirements of the times in which we live. If adapting themselves to the requirements of the times means yielding more than they have already done to the clamorous demands of parents for interruptions of study and more plunges on the part of their students into the vortex of the frivolous amusements of the day, of theatres and receptions and routs of every description, and conse quently, more relaxation of the moral fibre and more inability to work, then the position of modern Catholic educators is a hard one, placed as they thus are between the impossibility of really educating their charges or the necessity of closing their establishments. .they are confronted not with a prob lem of education, but of domestic econ omy. God grant they may at least pre serve the traditions of Christian modesty, and that the swaggering, over-confident damsel who affects masculine fashions and, it is said, is cultivating masculine vices, may never issue from our convent schools.” In the afternoon, after luncheon at the convent, there was a reception and exer cises of a narrative form, illustrative of the history of three leaders of the so ciety, in the Study Hall. Afterward Miss Anne Stewart Bailey read an address on behalf of the alumnae and the Archbishop said a few words to the assemblage. Afterward the Archbishop said a grand benediction in the chapel and the ob servances of the day were over, except for the nuns’ vespers at evening. Bishop Farley and the Rev. Fathers Cardella, Brann, McMahon. Dyer, Farrell. Duffy, Brayley, Craig, Gordon, Wall, Taylor, Healy, Quinn, Ryan, Keenan, Huntman, Henry and O'Keefe were among the clergy present. _ AMONG THE CHURCHES. St. Peter's. The Young Men and Ladies’ Sodality will not meet next Tuesday evening on account of the play that will be given at St. Peter’s Hall, Monday and Tuesday evenings. The meeting of the Young (Men’s Lyceum will also be postponed until Wednesday evening. Arrah-Na-Pogue, which will be pro duced by St. Peter’s Lyceum on Monday and Tuesday next, November 2G and 27, promises to be a great success. There w'ill be fifty people in the cast who have been rehearsing for the past two months under a very able elocutionist. As this is their first venture in the new St. Peter’s Hall the boys are naturally desirous of making the play an unqualified success, and if their enthusiasm can be regarded as any criterion, the performance will easily eclipse their former events. There will be four acts with six scenes, and the scenery, which was specially painted for the play, will be very elabor ate. The cast will be:—Col. Bagenal O’Grady, the O’Grady, Mr. John Blanch ard; Beamish McCoul, Mr. Mark A. Sulli van; Major Coffin, Thomas Griffin; The Irish Secretary of State, Mr. George Sie bert; Sergeant in the English Service, Mr. Richard Cooley; (Mr. Michael Feeny, a process server, Mr; Jos.

Everything seems to indicate that the euchre and reception to be given by the members of St. Bridget’s Lyceum on next Tuesday evening, November 27, will be a most successful affair. The members of the Ticket Committee report that they have disposed of an unusually large num ber of tickets, and that the supply is al most exhausted. The prize committee has already secured many valuable prizes, and expect many more the next day or two. The prizes are on exhibition on Newark avenue and Montgomery street. The com mittee feels confident that it will have more than the 125 promised. It has ar ranged to set aside 10 prizes to be drawn for by those who do not participate in the games. The members hope that this will induce a number of their friends who do not play euchre, to attend. Among the prizes that will be awarded at the euchre are:—A complete tea ser vice of 56 pieces donated by the Rev. W. A. Keyes; rockers, chairs, tables, lamps, clocks, sofa pillow's, barrel of flour; two 15-pound turkeys, and many articles of jewelry. Among those who have already donated prizes are the Rev. W. A.
