THERE IS ONLY QUE BED
Those Takei from Crystal Engine
House Have Not Been Returned.
MUST BE rUKCHASED BY CITY
Ordinance Allowing Tot to lie Done Can
not Be Passed for Some Time as
There is No Available Fund
to Draw From.
The Crystals have replaced the auto
matic apparatus in their engine house,
but have not returned the beds which
were taken out ut the time the appa
ratus was removed. According to one
of the members they do not Intend to
replace the beds unless the city buys
them, and as there is uui one "'
now, the one that Mayor Council huU
put in, there Is only one man sleeping
at the engine house, where, formerly,
there were seven.
The ordinance for the purchase of tne
company's -belongings will. It Is likely,
not become a law for some time at
least, as there is no money available
unless a transfer is made from the ap
propriation for heating and ventilating
the city hall, and Mayor Council has
said that this appropriation cannot 'be
made with his consent, and It is scarce
ly possible for the transfer to be made
without his consent. Kven though the
matter should be passed over the
mayor's head, the city controller will
hesitate, no doubt, to approve of the
measure, as the law will not allow him
to sign the transfer papers, inasmuch
as It specifically states that no trans
fer can be made from an appropriation
until after all the claims against that
appropriation are satisfied.
There is oven now an apparent short
age In the heat and lighting appropria
tion, and as this Is the appropriation
which Is to be attacked by the friends
of the Crystal ordinance, the outlook
is rather dubious for the ordinance.

against that many citizens of this coun
ty yesterday, directing the sheriff to
make a levy and collect the amount
alleged to be owed by euch to the plain

are as follows:
Patrick Powell, $71.75; Gem Gregory

"Michael Forrester. $46.55; John An
drews, $73.25; Mike King, $4.r.
The plaintiff is tht wife of a lightning
rod dealer, whose agents went through
the county within the past two years
canvassing among the property own
ers. The result was that every other
house In the country districts Is rigged
out with lightning rods.
The work was supposed to be done
for a certain amount, but, according- to
the property owners, when the bills
cam to ie paid they were found to be
much larger than was expected.
In almost every case the agent would
have the person agreeing to equip his
house with lightning rods, sign a Judg
ment note for a certain figure fori which
the work was supposed to be done.
Some refused to pay altogether until
the amount demanded would be made
to tally with the contract price and
others paid Just the contract price.
Hence the suits,

unalloyed pleasure, uninterrupted by
calls and undisturbed by worry over
patients. It was the annual mid-summer
outing of the 'Lackawanna County

ways looked forward to with pleasant
anticipations by the members, and one
which is always a source of rare enjoy
ment to them. "No rigidity and no
shop talk" is the order of the day.
Yesterday's outing was one of the
most successful that has occurred. The
party left Scranton at 3.24 p. m., and
upon arrival at the lake spent a short
time in boating, after which they ad
journed to Hotel Pines, where dinner
was served. There were no set speeches.
but nearly every one present contribut

and as the doctors arc, as a rule, ready
wits, there was no lack of after dinner
merriment. After supper there was
more boating, and at 8.43 the return

Proposition to Establish It on the West

At the meeting of the West Side
board of trade lust evening was Intro

for the establishment of an electric

up In the numerous culm banks that
dot the surface. Hie Impressed his col
leagues so well with the feasibility of
the scheme as to ithe benefit that would
accrue to the community at large and
also the ultimate pi-out that will come
to the investors.
After several members had com'
mitted themselves as being favorably
disposed toward the undertaking, the
board was canvassed for stockholders
and D. M. Jones, chairman of the man
ufactures committee, headed the sub'
scription with $1,000. William H. Will
lams, E. 01. Clarke and 'Mr. Farrel
promised to stibscrlbe $500 worth of
stock. This formed a nucleus of $2,500,
and it Is expected that an amount nec
essary to carry out the project can toe
easily raised among the citizens of
means of the West Side.
Nothing was said as to the probable
location, there being several available
sites. The condition of West Laclta

action was taken so that the city en

C. A. Benjamin, Frank Hronno, Nelson

and Michael Malloy.
The deceased was about 25 years old,
had a smooth face, dark hair and dark
clothing. In his pocket was a coupon
for a watch given by George W. Sister,
Academy street, Poughkeepsle, a lock
of auburn hair and a small purse. On
his left arm were tattoo marks of a
dragon's head, a cross and an nnchor on
the right arm similar to the marks of a
sailor boy leaning on a tomb-stone,
with the words "In memory of my mo
ther." The testimony of the trainmen em
ployed on the freight which killed the
man was taken, but nothing of Im
portance was gleaned and a verdict of
accidental death was returned. The
body will be kept at Wheeler & Stan

ILast winter the man boarded for a
number of weeks In a well-known
Northslde hotel. He appeared to be a
person of means, adorning himself ac
cording to the latest fashions and
dropping hints occasionally about his
calls in Prairie avenue. He was a fa
vorite with the proprietor, and the
clerks asked him where he bought his
But one day he left suddenly. The
books showed that he owed $26.50. (Bit
terness swelled up In the proprietor's
"I could have sworn that the man
was honest," he said, and the clerks all
agreed with him as they were In the
habit of doing.
After the man had been away about
two months he suddenly reappeared.
The proprietor scowled.
"I've come back to pay my bill," said
the man. "It has been troubling my
conscience ever since I left, and I
couldn't rest until I knew that my ac
count with the world was clear."
The proprietor was gratified.
. "I always thought you were an honest
man." he said, shaking his hand cor
dially, "and I told my clerks I couldn't
believe that you Intended to do me out
of the board bill."
"I've always heard that you were a
close Judge of character," said the man;
"many people have told me so."
Then the proprietor was more grati
fied than ever. (He had more than half
believed for a great many years that
he was a man of phenomenal shrewd
ness. The man with a stricken conscience
drew out a roll of money and gave the
clerk a $50 bill.
"Take it out of that," he said, with a
flourish of his hand, "and enough more
to pay for the drinks."
The -man Received $20.65 In change, and
after he had rubbed against the bar for
ten minutes he shook hands all around
and hurried away.
Then all agreed that he was a man In
a thousand. The proprietor said you
couldn't fool him about men he knew
But the $50 bill was a counterfeit.
Sometimes a man suffers from re
morse, not because he stole, but be
cause he stole so little.
AN AMERICAN GIRL.
In a riant mood nature made the Amer
ican girl. After trying her 'prentice hand,
on man and using her own skilled labor
on the lasses of other climes, she gathered
herself up for her masterwork and, says
William 8. Walsh, produced an angel
with a spice of the devil in her. This she
set loose in the new world of America to
bewilder, to baffle and to enchant. All
nations own her spell; none are able to
read the secret of that spell. She Is a
mystery In silks and flounces. Her owe
countrymen give her up as a conundrum,
while as a flesh and blood entity they
eagerly take her In. Even the realistic
novelist, a gentleman who prides himself
on his Kodak fidelity to life, owns that
when he pulls the string this flashing
and dancing vision refuses to do the rest,
and so his picture is dim and blurred
