Lately the Italians took up the matter again, and Frank DePiorro and Peter Magagna visited Hishop Unban at Scranton this week to obtain Ids con sent. DANCING CONDEMNED. ■ Wlllceabarre Pastor Join* the Crudade Against Thin runtime Rev. Father McAndrews, pastor of St. Mary's Catholic church, Wilkesbarre. has started a crusade against dancing. He attributes to loosely conducted danc ing schools a terrible demoralization of the morals of young people of both sexes. "Fathers and mothers," he said with emotion, "I beseach you to have a care for your daughters. Watch them as they leave home and go out upon the streets. Keep your eyes upon them, and prevent, if possible, their associa tion with lewd young men. See that they go to church with good motives and try in every way to preserve theii goodness and their purity. Dances are held at night, making them more dan gerous and criminal. Darkness is the enemy of modesty. It gives dissolute young men opportunity to ruin inuocem young souls, and sins are committed which in daylight would not be allowed." Then he took up the masque hall and denounced it in no uncertain words. The masque he called the weapon of tin devil. Silly women and giddy girls assemble at these balls to excite tin passion of young men. They commit acts of immodesty that even they them selves would blush for, if their faces were not covered. And far beyond the bonds of propriety and allow familiarity grossly sinful. Some people say society demands their presence at balls and other places where dancing is the chief amusement; that they might as well be out of the world as out of fashion. The road lead ing to destruction is broad and straight and there are a great many traveling upon it. Hut thoro is no necessity for joining the throng. At this point the speaker remarked that it might appear to some that he is too severe, but to show them ho was not. he read the opinions of the fathers of the church on dancing. He followed this by reading an interview published in the Philadelphia Press, witli Professor Walsh, a leading dancing master of the city, in which the latter said that in his experience covering ten years, he never knew dancing to be so immoral as now. In the waltz the cheeks of the partners are constantly together, and he further said ho had known young girls to be bugged by older men while whirling about in the dance. Coming nearer homo, Father McAn drews read an article published a short time ago in a local paper, wherein danc ing schools wore roundly denounced as being the greatest menace to the morals of young people of the city, and wherein the chief of police, the sergeant and the roundsmen all declare them to be the stepping stones to dens of iniquity. Small Coal Car* Must Go. What are known as the "jimmy" coal cars will soon be a thing of the past. Atone time there was a large number of those cars in use on the anthracite coal carrying roads, but the number has j been greatly reduced in tho past few years. Recently some of the more prog ressive lines refused to haul these cars and the roads that possess them have had to confine them to their own tracks as far as possible. The Philadelphia and Reading Rail way Company years ago had a large number of these small cars, but for some time past it has boon getting rid of them, and when one has been badly injured it has boon consigned to the scrap pile. All the new cars are of larger size. The law which requires all freight cars to he equipped with patent couplers lias brought about a change in the character of the rolling stock of the railroad companies. Not only are the small size coal cars being supplemented by larger ones, but the new freight cars are of larger capacity, and, on some of the lines, cars of 100,000 pounds capa city are now in service. This increase in carrying capacity has been brought abo:t chiefly by the con struction of more powerful and heavier locomotives. The change in tho motive power has caused improvements to be made throughout all the physical de partments of the railroad. The greatest drawbacks to the "jim my" cars was the manner in which they piled up at the least provocation. This is especially so when the train is a mix ed-one. The heavier cars have, no com passion on the small ones. Tho com panies that own them are getting rid of them as fast as they can to avoid the ex pense of putting on patent couplers. It is said that the Lehigh Valley and Jersey Central Railroad ompanlos have sold thousands of these cars to a Cana dian road, and it will not be long before these companies will have nothing but gondola cars. It is stated that the offi cials of the car shops of these roads have been instructed to make no repairs on these cars. The Lehigh Valley des troyed 2,700 of them last yenr. Judge Lynch Indorsed. At a meeting of the Third district Democratic committee Saturday night., the three dnlogates. It. R. Kitchen, of Nanticoke; H. W. Davis, of Kingston, and John J. Moore, of Plymouth, were pledged to support Judge John Lynch for the vacant place on the supreme court bench, and Incidentally pledged themselves to vote for tho re-election of Statu Chairman Carman. TIIIH Week's Funerals. Mrs. Maioy died at Carboodale on Monday. The remains wore brought here and were interred at St. Ann's cemetery yesterday afternoon. The deceased was a former resident of this section. She is survived by five sons and seven daughters, as follows: John and Michael, Carbondale; Edward, Sbeppton, C mdy and Frank, Philadel phia; Mrs. James Gallagher, Carbondale, and Miss Mary, Philadelphia. The funeral of Miss Ella Rrown, who died on Friday in Philadelphia, took place from her brother's residence at Drifton on Tuesday afternoon. The remains were followed to St. Ann's church by a large number,of friends, also by the Daughters of Mary Sodality, of which the deceased was a member. Daniel Carr, of Oakdale. was buried at St. Ann's cemetery the same after noon. A number of relatives and ac quaintances followed the corpse to the grave. On the same afternoon Thomas Mc- , Carron, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William McCarron, was buried at Freeland cemetery. The funeral was largely at tended. Sues the Lehigh Valley. Mrs. Mary E. Price, of Easton, widow of Daniel E. Price, who died as a result of the Injuries received in a collision between passenger trains on the Le high Valley Railroad on the mountain near Wilkesbarro last November, has started a suit in the Northampton county court for SIO,OOO damages against the railroad company. Price was the engineer of the train bound for Easton. The accident occurred on November 10, 1808, and ho died four days later. The widow claims that the engineer of the train which got beyond control and ran into Price's was incompetent on account of his unfamiliarity with the roadbed of the section in which lie was running, and that the engine lie had was inadequate to meet the circum stances. The section on which the trains collided was a single track. The plaintiff claims it was dangerous, due to the negllgonco of the railroad company. Mrs. Price has four small children. Cannot "Round l'p" McCarthy. From Tuesday's Philadelphia luquircr. The Inquirer regrets that It cannot grant the request of "One of the Public" who writes to it from Audenried, asking that it shall compel the Honorable Dan iel J. McCarthy to make good his charges against the Kline township. Luzerne county, school board. The request is entirely relevant and we have no doubt that everything which our correspondent writes wit.li respect to public interest in the charges is true. Put there are two reasons why this journal cannot "round up" the Honor able Daniel J. McCarthy. The lirst is that the Audenried letter to the In quirer was anonymous, a reason suffi cient to preclude its publication, and tho other is that nothing short of the swirl of a tornado can stop Mr. Mc- Carthy when he is once in active opera tion.

PR ETT YJSCREEN S. HOW TO BUILD A USEFUL BIT OP FURNITURE WITH LITTLE OUTLAY. •Jnpanette anil Cliinee Screen. Can I>4 I'nrcliaaed at Very lteaeonable I'rice. ltnt They Can He Made lluine at Mucl I. CSS KxpenHf. The screens that come from Japan and China are best for the moderate purse. They can be purchased at rea sonable prices in almost every towr and city lir the country. Or screen; at still less expense may be made ai home. First determine upon the size of the screen, the height of the panels, theii width, and whether two, three on foul shall be used. A screen of good pro portion is one formed of three panels five and one-half feet high by two fee! in width. Have a frame made by the carpenter or, better still, make it yourself if you are clever at such work. It is a sim SCREEN MADE OK BLUE DENIM, pie matter to form the skeleton of strips of light pine from an inch to an inch and a half in thickness. Only the outside pieces and two cross pieces are required to brace the frame and make it taut and Arm. Once the frame is completed the rest is easy. Now stretch .over the frame some fig ured burlap, that can be secured at the low cost of 12V£ cents a yard. Choose this for the face of the screen. Place the frame upon the floor. Tack the edge of the burlap to the top piece of the frame, and stretch tightly and tack to the lower pieces and sides. In doing this the edge of the burlap should be drawn over the corner of the wood, so that when the back is covered in the same way all the surface is smooth except the rim of the screen. This rim is then treated by a covering of gimp or braid, or a narrow piece of burlap, hemmed and bound. Fasten it on with brass-headed tacks, and the panel is completed. Light brass hinges join the panels, and the screen is ready for use. Many other cheap fabrics may be used to cover these screens. Figured burlaps, blue denim, creton, or inexpen sive tapestries all make admirable sur faces. They can sometimes be com bined with good results. Thus a screen may be faced with denim and the re verse covered with creton, or the pan els may be divided—the upper half cov ered with tapestry and the lower hall with some good tone of burlaps; or i the three panels may be covered with different fabrics. Should the screen be intended for use in a bedroom it can be made to serve a double purpose by covering but one side with burlap or denim. The cross pieces should be three or four in number, and the frame generally strengthened a little, when, I,ai mNljjk : | SH |jp SCREEN FOR A FIREPLACE, presto, the reverse side of the screen becomes a wardrobe and towel rack. By fastening hooks in the top strip of the screen dresses can be hung upon it, and towels, stockings, etc., can be placed on the cross pieces. There is really no end to the uses to which screens may be put, and their manufac ture is so simple and so Inexpensive that every ingenious woman may pos sess one. American Womrn.
