The editor wondered whether It was 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 iarity. The visitor frowned slightly, but went on. "I desire to ask, sir," he said, "It there is any probability of war between the United States and Great Britain." . "None in the leant." "Nor any with Spain?" "Still less." ''Do you know of any other country We may have trouble with?" "None." .' "And you would say that we shall have a period of absolute peace for the next ten years?" "I'll bet my salary on It in advance for that time." "Then If you will be so kind I would be pleased to have you publish this article in your valuable journal over my signature, sir." and the visitor ex tended a fot mid able looking document, tied with red tape, toward the editor. -!WBat--bout?-"Inquired theedti tor. taking it gingerly.

North Main street, will receive prompt attention; ol eic open from I a. m. to 10 p. m. 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 by riders. TO SWEEP THE STREET. Bids to be Sent by the Mitchell Hose Company. 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.

Officer Neary brought In White, but Mrs. Wil liamson escaped. However, agreement was made between Williamson and White and the matter was settled. LOTUS CLUB TO BANQUET.
