Neal Vanderworker, of Laceyvllle,
languishes In Jail for stealing a pair of
shoes from a cqmrade named Dunlap.

wont on a spree. When Dunlap missed

charging him with having stolen them.

Efforts are being made to resuscitate
the eleotric railroad and electric light
schemes here again. The railroad pro
ject contemplates a Hne between here
and Factoryvllle, -with branches to
reach out and 'toudh Lakes Carey end
Winola. It is claimed that sufficient
power to generate the electricity could
e obtained by damming Tunkhannock
creek or tapping the flow pond at Lake
Carey. If suoh a plan Is feasible, the
road could be operated very cheaply
and doubtless would be a paying Insti
tution. As an aid to such projects, how
ever, the next legislature should so
amend the laws that a charter could be
granted to electric lines allowing them
to carry freight where they do not run
parallel with steam roads.
"It seems 'too bad," remarked one of
our business men today, "that the cen
sus reports should give our town only
1,000, when at the lowest estimate there
are 2,800 people living within a radius
of three-quarters of a mile from the
court house." It Is rather bellttleing,
for a fact.

A case that calls for deepest sym
pathy Is that of 'the family of John
Wilsoy, who recently arrived here from
Texas. The daughter, Mrs. Wlthrow,
lies dead in the house, while the father
