editor of the crank department
"Excuse me, sir," he said, with a

going to be a dime- or a quarter, but
told the visitor to proceed.
"I want to publish a card In your
paper, sir, but before doing so I desire
to obtain a few facts relative thereto."
"Go on with your rat-kllllng," said the
editor, with pleasing and easy famil

"Nor any with Spain?"

FOR THE CINDER PATH.
Two Hundred lk.lar Subscribed by
Robert W. Johnson.
The Carbondale Cycle club have re
ceived a big encouragement in their
work for a cinder path between Scran
ton and Crystal Lake and the ECheine
now begins to materialise. What has
given the boys so much encouragement
came yesterday in the shape of a check
for two hundred tlollars which was sub
scribed by Kobert W. Johnson, of New
Brunswick. N. J. Mr. Johnson is one
of the leading members of the Crystal
Lake Park association and thinks the
path will do much toward making the
lake a popular resort.
At the meeting to be held on Friday
evening, more definite plans will be en
tered into. The path, if built, will prob
ably run along the bank of the creek
which Is the outlet of the lake. This
would make the grade very slight, so
that no difficulty would be experienced
TO SWEEP THE STREET.
Bids to be Sent by the Mitchell Hose
The streets at this period of the year
are extremely dirty and the warm
weather of the past few days has dried
the mud up so that the air Is now full
of flying dust, making It very disagree
able to persons.
This matter should receive the atten
tion of the councils at once, and ar
rangements should be made by which
the sprinkling and sweeping could com
mence. There will probably be some
competition this year as to wfco shall
get the contract for sweeping. AtiMng
others who have been looking Into the
matter are members of the Mitchell hose
company and they will probably put In
a bid for the work. Their street sprink
ling venture turned out so well that
they are thinking seriously of trying
for all the street cleaning.
AT ALDERMAN JONES.
Kxelting Caso Ilcnrd-Thrllllng
linmanco In Dlnok and White.
The office of Alderman Jones was the
scene of much interest at a case In
which Vandllng parties were concerned.
Loving another man's wife Is not con
ducive to peace In the family and this
was the cause of the trouble.
The case was brought by Thomas
Williamson aguinst Amos White, a col
ored mun. und liix wife. White Is a
boarder of Mr. Williamson, but as Mrs,
Williamson seemed to prefer White's
company to thnt of her husband, he
grew Jealous. When he found his wife
hugging White he could stand it no
longer, and so hied himself off to the
alderman's. He charged them with
unseemly and obscene conduct. Officer
Neary brought In White, but Mrs. Wil
liamson escaped. However, agreement
was made between Williamson and
White and the matter was settled.

of Pine street, presented a claim of
$100 for damage caused by the over
flow from a culvert and Bernard Col
meyer also asked to be paid for the
damage done to his property from the
same cause. Action was deferred until
the claims are Investigated. Action on
the bill of Archbald Water company
was postponed until the contract exist
ing between the borough and the com
pany Is produced. A number of the
residents of South Main street peti
tioned for a sidewalk along the river
between Wayne street bridge and Mar

ter was referred to the road committee.
Chairman H. C. Llnderman, of the
board ot auditors, presented the annual
report 'and made several good sugges
tions as to the needs of the borough
council. Among other things he sug
gested that a vault or cabinet be made
for the storage of borough documents.
At present the auditors are consider
ably hampered in their work by the
lack of system In arranging borough
papers and the difficulty In getting ac
cess to borough documents of past
years. He also suggested that a can
cellation stamp be given to the borough
treasury. Mr. Linderman's suggestions
were practical and business-like, and
they deserve the Immediate attention
of the council. During the discussion
which his remarks created some one
suggested that the borough safe be
used for that purpose, but this being
too small was promptly sold to Post
master O'Rourke for $25. The bond of
Treasurer Sommers In $12,000 was ap
proved. His sureties are Anthony
Brill, George Heckman, John Carden,
