John Hornn and his foot ball playing
ability aie too well-known in this city
to need nny extended encomiums Lust
jenr he was a freshman at I. ifajtie
college, and there easily made the
strong 'vaislty team. His massive
frame rained him a place In the line,
and during seveiat games he plajed at
guaid and tackle. During the latter
pirt of the se.u-on, however, he was
shifted to halfback, and for a man of
his size plaed an exceptionally fast
game In that position.
He Is over Mx feet tall, nnd when lu
playing condition -weighs :in pounds.
His (list work was done In 1SA7 nt tho
Scianton High i-chool, whcie ho was
coached In the Intricacies of the gamo
by Piofessor William Schlmpff and
John J. Murphy, the famous Geoige
town athleto.
Local theatrical pations will bo
grlevc4 to learn that the coming local
season will find Hany lirown missing
from the roster of managers of Scran

to know that his nueonco will be
caused by circumstances whl(h glvo
Mr. Krnwn n well-deserved piomotlon.

his duties next month. Last season ho
managed the Academy ot Muslu with
great success, making tho theatio one
of tho best paying popular prlco houses
in tho state, and by hi own courtesy

If there Is anybody In this city who
lovt s children more and takes a keener
delight In making them happy than
does Former Park Commissioner An

among those unknown to fame. Mr.
Bedford' efforts every vrar in arranz-
Ing for the newsboys' picnic nnd In
seeing that the boys themselves have
the very best of limes on thnt day have
won for him the title of "The News

foie tho picnic every year, Mr. Hedford
pushes his laigt' business Interests to
one side and spends almost his enllic
time In perfecting the details for the
newsies' celebration, nnd when tho dny
Itself comes he becomes ciy much like
the wildest youngster In the crowd and
takes hln ride on the merry-go-round
nnd romps and gambols with the bos

It's because he likes them.

Arrived In tho City Saturday Morn
lnp In TImo for tho Members of tho
Regiment to Breakfast nt Their
Homos Colonol Watros Highly
Pleased with tho Manner In Which
His Men Conducted Thomsolvos
During tho Week Few Cases of
Dlsorderllnoss Roported.
Tho Thhteenth regiment arrived
home nt 8.10 o'clock Saturday morn
ing from Camp Magco, Mt. Orctnii,
after n long hut not unpleasant ride.
Their tinln left Mt. Gretna at 10.1S
o'clock Fildny night, camp being
broken pimoptlj nt 8 o'clock.
Tho long trnln Into which the com
panies ctowded consisted of llnel.v
equipped Ichlgh Valley coaches, which
afforded the bovs evers' accommoda
tion during their ten bouts' journey.
Captain George Merrlman, of Com
pany V, was olllccr of the day, hut
his peilodlcal trip thioiigh the tialn
found everything quiet nnd oideily.
On nrrlvlng nt the Delnwuie and
Hudson station, tho regiment formed
and, with Colonel Wntres and his staff
at the head of tho column mauhed
up Lackawanna to Wyoming, and
from theto to Washington and the
new armors-, whero equipment was de
posited, after which tho dusty-looking
soldier boys In khaki left for their
vat Ions homes and had tho satisfac
tion of eating breakfast with their
a pli:asaxt wi:i:k.
The encampment, on the whole,
piovod a most pleasant week for sol
diers and ofllcets alike to look back
upon. Colonol Wattes has declared
himself hlghls satlsiled with the way
his men conducted themselves and, In
deed, the camp was an exemplary one.
Onl' a few Individual cases of dls
orderllnoss wete repotted, and these
occunlng In the early part of the week
were attributable to the speakeass'
nuisance In the company streets, which
Colonel Wntres piomptly did nwny
w Ith.
Tho ramp was a model of clennll
ness, cery compnns' street being en
tltels' fiee from scinps of paper or tho
least debris. There were sots' few ac
cidents nnd the genernl health was
excellent. It was pietts" warm during
sftmo of tho drills, but nevettheless
the men bore up against the weather
like veterans, nnd Mnjor Keller nnd
his staff of woikers had little to do
lu the way of nldlng victims of ' "at
Mirth nnd Jollity liugned supreme nil
week nnd after taps was sounded
nights nnd lights wete out, many wete
tho'practlcal Jokes played upon unfor
tunate "rookies," ns tho new enlisted
men are contemptuously termed by
their experienced brethren In the
lanks. A clever jest was enacted nt
the tent of Major Frank Hobllng
Thuisdny night.
The major was giving his "pink
tea," ns he rather lnnptlj termed his
farewell party, at which were present
the field and staff of the regiment and
the oQIcers of his battalion. About
10. 10 o'clock, several otilcets of the
Twelfth leglment Joined the festive
thtong and with them was a pottly
Teuton, visiting In the tamp.
He was a pondetous individual,
weighing nbout two bundled nnd
thlit' pounds, nnd w eating a military
coat, borrowed ftom nn ofllcer. About
an hour after his ai rival, one of the
Thhteenth's ofllcers slipped away and
had a brief talk Ith the ofllcer of the
provost guat d, which icsulted In tho
arrival upon the scene soon after of
that dignitaty and his men.
Walking up to tho big Get man, ho
laid his hand heavily upon his shoul
der nnd luitly lemiuked: "You are
under arrest, sir."
'Tutor an est! Melu Gott, what hat
I done'.'" t-tammered his unfoi tunitto
pilsoner, nervously dropping on a
chair half a glassful of "pink tea."
"You aie wearing an oflleer's coat,
which It Is against the rules of this
camp for a civilian to do," sternly
answered tho ofllcer.
"Rut I am all right. I haf no other
goat with me," stammered tho Ger
man. "These ohentlemen can identi
fy me. They know who I am." With
which ho turned to the ofllcer who had
Introduced him Into tho parts', and
plteously appealed for recognition. All
lie received, however, was a steels'
glance, and a cold, "Ofllcer, I never
saw tho man before In my life." Ho
lecclved tho same treatment fiotn nil
present and the guaid hunted him
nround to tho guaid house, wheic, af
ter thoroughly frightening hhn by a
fierce display of bayonets, thes' al
lowed him to go back to his quartets,
after sui tendering the coat.
Just befoto the leglment left camp,
Sergeant R. J. Hauer led his band
around the company stieets, In each of
which the men were lined up In foimaj
array to greet and che6r the talented
nggiegatlon of musicians who won
flesh lauiels for themselves dining the
encampment. Headquuiteis also wa;
Following this, the entire leglment,
led by the band, matched to the brigade
headquaiteis as fat ew ell to General
Gobin and his staff. Tho brgade com
mander met the regiment and made a
very nice little speech, In which ho
warmly pialsed the leglment for the
excellent woik it had dono In camp,
and said many exceedingly pleasant
things nbout Colonel L. A. Waties and
his Scrnnton command.
Ho Had a Skirt, Believed to Have
Been Stolen, in His Possession,
Samuel Hurley was at rested Saturday
morning by Patrolman Addyman for
behaving In a disorderly manner on
Center street, and -was found to have
In his possession a skirt belonging to a
woman named Lottie Smith, who re
bides at 309 Oakfoid court.
It Is believed that ho stole this, but

Ho Leaped from a. Moving Train to
Rocover His Boy's Hat and Was
Ground Undar Wheels,
Anthony Walsh, of Ols'phnnt, lost
his life near Mountain Park on Satur
day morning by Jumping from a mov
ing pascnger train to rescue his boy's
hat, which ahd blown out of the win
dow. Walsh and his family were on an ex
cursion run over the Jersey Central to
the paik by St. Patrick's congregation
of Olyphant. Just as tho trnln had be
gun to slacken Its speed and was near
Ing the park, the hut of one of Walsh's
bos-s blew out tho open window. Walsh
hurriedly arose from his seat nnd poing
out on tho rear platform of tho car,
Jumped from the train.
He got off backwards and In landing
stiuck some ralhoad tle which were
lying alongside the track. This caused
him to slip and his body In falling was
sent under the wheels of the train,
where It was hoirlbly crushed nnd man
gled almost bes'ond recognition. The
grief of Mis. Wnlsh and her large fam
ily of children when they learned of the
accident nnd viewed the remains was
pathetic In the extreme.
The body was viewed bv Cot oner Sic
Kee, of Luzerne counts', who gave per
mission to have It temoved to Oly
phant. The dead man was a miner by
occupation and had lived on Dempsey
street, Olyphant, for a number of years,
lie was 4,ri yeais old nnd Is sutvlved by
a wife nnd nine children.
There wete no less than three other
excursionists who were Injured by fall
ing fiom swings ut the park. These
weio Frank Ferguson, of Olyphant,
who sustained a dislocation of the left
elbow; William Reap, of Rlakels', who
sustained a fractured wrist, and Jos
eph Mcllnle, of Dunmoro, one of whoso
Ungeis were bioken.
They Must Now Secure a Llcenso
from tho County Treasurer.

This action Is taken to protect the
contestants, who have been working
faithfully for Tho Tribune, against tho
possibility of any speculator enter
ing tho contest tho last day or two
and purchasing a $1,000 scholarship by
presenting the names of his friends as
new subscribers, paying for them
himself. While nothing of tho rort wns
attempted last year, the close ot tho
contest demonstrated that It would
have taken much less than $1,000 to
have purchased the first special re
ward, as the winning contestant had
only secured for Tho Tribune less than
$400 In now subscriptions,
Tho Tribune desires to protect tho
contestants that are working for It,
nnd will use Its best endeavors to
have every feature of tho contest per
fects' fair. The special rewards will
positively go to the contestants who
secure the lnrget number of points,
which will bo credited only for new
nnd legltlmnte subscribers. An ad
vertisement on the fourth page gives
full particulars.

Tilfrff I Real estate has
1Y1UI L" always been tho
most steady and
certain investment
to be had, but it
has been shunned
by many because they were so
hampered in dealing with it. Many
mortgagees, when they have at
tempted to collect their loans, have
found out that their security was
worthless because of prior liens or
defective title. A Title company in
issuing its policy to the mortgagee
assumes all risks. If there has been
any mistakes, the loss does not fall
on the mortgagee.
