Several pretty selections were rendered. Protest Against School Consult. A meeting of the borough school board was held Saturday evening for the pur pose of taking action on the census of children of school age. as taken by tho several ward assessors a few months ago. Directors Kline, Trevaskis, Urown, Everitt, Vanhorn, Hell and Krommes were present, also Assessors Drasher, Evans and Miller and Assistant Asses sor Ward. ( The recent assessment shows that thoye are only 1,181 children of school age in town, a loss of 355 compared with last year. The average attendance at tho public schools is 999, while over 400 borough children attend St. Ann's parochial schools and fully 100 inure are enrolled at the Creek Catholic and Slavonian Lutheran schools. A conservative estimate of tho children of school ago who are employed at the mills and breakers would ho 35 per cent of tho total number, or 500 more. This, in round numbers, is 3,000 children. I which is far too few to allow for a , town which cast 1,035 votes last Feb-! ruary. A decrease was shown in every ward, but the Third and South wards ' gave the heaviest losses. Secretary Treva*kls read correspon dence that has passed between County j Superintendent Hopper and himself, j from which it was learned that the last assessment figures have been forwarded I to the department at Harrisburg and j upon this assessment the state appro- ; prlatlon will he based in 1900 and 1901. The secretary estimated that the loss in 1 the appropriation will he fully 80no a! year, which means tho loss of one | month's schooling each year for the | pupils. The assessors explained part of the [ loss by stating that heretofore they I were instructed to assess all children ! between tho ages or 0 and 31 vears. but j that tho last assessment contained only j those from (i to 10 years. Tho hoard. ' however, considered that there is still inaccuracy somewhere, and a motion was passed to have a re-enumeration of all the wards by persons to be appointed by the president. The enumerators are to receive S3 per day and the assessors a like amount when they work. The assessment will i be made this week, if possible, and two days are allowed for each of the First, Second, Third and Fourth wards, and J four days fur tho South ward. If any errors are found a supplemental list wlfl J he forwarded to Harrisburg. The secretary reported that three ' window panes had been broken in ! the Daniel Coxe school during the week by pupils and others. The matter was j referred to the proper committee to make a full investigation. Acuumck Sun of Forgery. The suit of John M. Ward, a mer chant of Wilkesbarre, to recover pes- j session of property worth $30,000 which j he claims his son, Eugene Ward, fraud- j ulently obtained from him, was on trial at the county seat last week. The I defendant Is a lawyer and a council man of Wilkesbarre, and Is charged with forging the names of his father! and mother to three deeds and borrow ing $7,000 on the property from the Mutual Guarantee liuildiug and Loan Association. The father testified that ho know nothing of the alleged fraudulent trans- I fer until a year ago, when he wanted to | sell the property, and found that some I time previous his soil had obtained pos- ; session of it. lie pronounced the sig natures forgeries, and so did E. W. Mulligan and Ira I). Sax, of the Second National bank, and W. A. Molcber, a member of the Philadelphia bar and a handwriting expert. Tho trial will be resumed this tuorn ing. The grand jury, at its last session, returned a true bill against tho son on tho charge of breaking into his father's store and stealing some silks. l>ie<l from Son's Blow. Thursday was pay day for the miners at Carbondaie, and .James Nolan went on a spree. Late that night lie return ed to his home and his father began to 1 upbraid him. The altercation led to blows, and the aged mother, who for months lias been an invalid with rheu matism, under the excitement, ran to a neighbor's house and gave the alarm. When the neighbors arrived they found the father lying on the back ! porch, with a deep gash in his head and his skull fractured. Near-by, stuck in the ground, was an axe, on the blade of which was blood stains. The bov, aged 22 years, was later captured in a near by saloon. He admitted having had the axe in his hand and striken his father, but says ho did so in self-defense. The father died on Friday. •lefTrieft-Sliurkey Content.

This Refers to Women But It Will No ] I Doubt Apply to Men As Well—The ! Man Who Is Patiently Looking for | The Ideal Girl. I "It gets me," said the man, "to know why women and girls are not more I particular about the way they dress their feet. If they knew how much ; ■ people noticed them, they would take more pains in buying their shoes than ; they do in buying their gowns. Every 1 1 one knows that the man is more par i tic,liar about the way he keeps his hoots and shoes than a woman. As | for me, the woman 1 marry must have i pretty, well-dressed feet.. I have nev | er found any one yet who came up to my standard of excellence, and that's why I m not married, 1 suppose, j "I did think 1 had found her once. I j fell in love with one foot. That was where I made the mistake. It was j some kind of an art exhibition. There was a screen at the door from one [ room to another, which was a few I steps higher, and happening to look | across the room, 1 saw below that | screen the daintiest, most ladylike ! looking foot, slender and delicate and i refined, and wearing just the right kind of a shoe for that occasion—not a great heavy walking boot, and not | a dancing shoe, bat just right. Of J course, you don't expect me to tell you just what it was. lam not in the shoe j business, but I know when a girl wears j a shoe that is in good taste. | "This foot that I fell in love with I saw just for an instant as the worn ] an to whom it belonged drew it up to I the other step and the screen hid her so that I hadn't the slightest idea who | she was; young or old, hideous or beautiful. But I made up my mind I would find out. But you know how it is in a room filled with people—it is I not always easy to get across it. es j pecially if all your friends are there. | By the time I reached the screen I almost gave up my foot for lost. You can't see a woman's foot in these long skirts she wears unless she is on the street. I suppose my divinity must have raised lier dress as she went up the steps. "I did find her after a time, but I hail made a mistake. A man shouldn't fall in love with less than two feet, and he should see how they walk. There is everything in the way a wom an walks. The woman whose foot I j had admired—her feet were beautl- I ful. too —walked in a listless way. J She drew one foot after the other, lan | guidly. That might mean that she was selfish, indo'n-nt, delicate or a i number of other things. Just notice women who walk that way and see if I am not right. | "Then notice the woman who walks not exactly with a heavy step, but comes down flatfuoted every time. She would make a good business man ager, and she might know how to man age a housefull of servants, but she is j too aggressive to he a comfortable | person to get along with, it is all right for a woman to have opinions of ! her own; I like to see a woman who knows her own mind, and 1 would | rather enjoy having her look after my ideas if she cared to, but you don't like to be knocked over even with | ideas. I "Then there is the woman who has rather a heavy dragging step. That woman is sure to have round shoulders and stoop when she walks. She has to take time to think when she an swers, and it takes her a long time to see a joke. She lias large feet, and i her shoes do not fit trimly. That is ' not the kind of woman I care to know, i Then there is the woman who shakes | the room when she walks. She may not be over plump, and she is very likely cheerful and jolly. You like her, but her chubby feet—they are sure to be short and broad—are not for you. She is a nice kind of wife for some other man, and you like to go and take dinner with him occas ionally when you are in tile mood for it, but she is not the ideal woman. | "The ideal always wears trim, suit [ able shoes, and she walks just as a woman who has the Ideal feet, ideally dressed, should. She is sure to have , rather slender feet that look flexible and make you think somehow of a pretty slender hand well gloved. Her shoes always fit her like a glove, any ' way. She does not wear great man nish shoes around the street all the time because they are said to he fash l ionable. She only wears those with a heavy, rough walking suit. For the street she has a medium weight, trira looHr™ boot, and for the house she we rs pretty, soft, thin ones or pretty slippers, anything, uccording to the , occasion. There are times and sea l sons for all kinds of hoots, shoes and slippers. I "I was on the Broadway car down near the Battery the other day when a plainly dressed woman was crossing the street. When I saw her first every one In the car, men and women, were looking at her. What was the trouble, do you suppose? She was holding up her skirts a little, and so exhibited a pair of what do yon call 'em, with high j heels and a buckle in front?— Louis j Quinze slippers, isn't it? | "Now those are the prettiest thing a woman with a pretty foot can wear | in an appropriate place, but they were I out of place down there, and there was not a soul in Hie car that didn't notice them, and there was nothing about the woman otherwise to attract attention. I remember seeing a woman wearing low slippers on Fifth avenuo not long ago. and every one who passed turned to look at her. j "My ideal girl wouldn't think of j wearing a pair of shoes inappropriate ! , ly. Her shoes always fit her-so that she walks easily and well, with a | rather quick, light step, and moves jver tlie ground easily, without icrkl- GRAND OPERA HOUSE. Freeland Opera House Co.. Lessees.

Elmira, N. v., Advertiser, April Id, woo. The prediction of a brilliant perform ance (>r the opera "Martha" at tho Ly ceum theatre last night by tho An drews Opera Company was more than fulfilled. A more delighted and enthu siastic audience could,not be wished for as the superb work of the entire organi zation became apparent. The reason why so small a hand as a single score could produce such a volume of musical sound, could be so full of vigor, preci sion, melody and balance of harmony, was because of the remarkable material in tile combination. Every member of it could sing wlt.li Intelligence and lire and all were ambitious to do their best, so that the happiest results were attain ed. Such admirable work was inspiring and won the vigorous plaudits of tho house ropeatedly. The orchestra Is entitled to warm praise for its thoroughly professional work. It was sympathetic and sustain ing without obtrusion all the way from the dalntest songs to the full chorus. 1 lie production was ono tube remember ed long with great pleasure. At almost any other season tho company will pack the house. It Is a very highly accomplished organization. lloyt's "A Day Mini a Night." Charles lloyt's latest contribution to the stage. "A Day and a Night." is said to be altogether the best thing that Mr lloyt lias done for several years. The bright snappy dialogue, amusing situa tions and satirical hits, at tho expense of everything and everybody hypocriti cal, are in that popular play-Wight's own vein. His good niitiirod thrusts at the proverbial hypocracies of the human race, afford much merriment, while the entire construction of tin. farce comedy, as a vehicle for entertaining specialties by clever people, smack of "lloyt"of old. Mr. lloyt's handy work Is no less ap parent In the cast which will present "A Day and a Night." as the following names of the leading artists will show; Frank Donne, William 11. Currie, War ren I).
