THE PUBLIC EYE
Honon Lee, the genial bonlface of
Cpdosla, left his pleasant place along
the Deliwate river tecently and hied
himself to Carbondale to shake the
hands of his friends In this clt, among
whom his social qualities made him a
great favorite while he was here
Mr Lee, or "Hort '" as he Is famlllar
1 i ailed, was considered a royal good
fellow when he lived In Carbondale
and divided his time between his res
taut ant and trjlng to make all the
sunshine he could for those around
him. "Hort" was nlwnjs a lover of
t ports and to stimulate Interest In
things athletic he equipped a gym
nasium in the Keystone block that
was a model place foi the development
of one's self physically. Theie were
climbing bats, towing machines, bi
cycle machines and such things galore,

a hotel at Maj field, where many a
royal enteitalnmeut was provided for
those who were lucky to be dose

Alderman S. S Jones, the popular
magistrate, is taking advantage these
warm days of the lower tempciature
ilhat a residence beside the pleasant
Shores of Crystal lake brings, nnd It's
ti cold evening, truly, that catches the
rMderrna'n nvvay from his cozy sum
ifner hojne overlooking the lake's crys
tal waters. The alderman loves na
3ur best when she is resplendent In
JTier dress of green and Is beautiful in
!ull the hlooms of summer Then he
likes to retire to the shade and quiet
-of a sylvan nook and there pass his
'time with his favorite authors, his
'friends to whom, as he himself puts
It he can say what he likes, but who
never talk back to him.
In a passing reference llko this, one
cannot give anything like a Just estl
mnfe of the character nnd type of
'citizen tha Mr. Jones icpresentn.
suffice to say that communities and
menjare the better for having In their
midst a; citizen of his type. The nlder

to show his philanthropic spirit, evi
dence of which Is strikingly shown In
the great work of Knioigcnoy hospi
tal of which he was one of the founders
and one of Us present ollkeis.
Alderman Jones can be tightly
classed among the self-tnado men,
men whose opportunities to acquire
education were limited, but who had
In them the right stuff to presevero to
glorious success under the most ad
verse circumstances. Aside irom nis
other qualities, tho alderman has a
humorous side which, while brought to
advantage In ordinary convocation, I
best seen nt a public function, say In
the position of to.istmaster nt nn nfter
rtlnnnr session The aldet man. how-
over, is nt home on any topic and ono
always feels that he lias iictitu some

appreciation of the beauties of nature,

The doctor was unfoitunatc In catch
ing the heavy rnin storm ot Monday
night, having driven the entire Jour
ney, but though he was as wet, he
was not as mad as was the proveiblal
"wet hen": the doctor 1 too much of
the ttue spoitsman to become uiflled
over such a tiille.
The doctor Is whole-souled and gen

the philosophy of sunshine, a phy
sician who believes and pi ictlces that
a cheerful spirit and a hearty laugh
are often mote effective than a bot

increasing his friendships.

THE POLES ALL COUNTED
Interesting Tour of the City En
gineer and Representatives of tho
Various Telephone and Telegraph
Companies About 1,200 Poles in
The tour of the city engineer nnd tho
repiosontatlvos of the different tele
graph companies to ascertain the num
ber of poles each company had erected
along the city's streets was completed
estordny. The city engineer will now
devote himself to figuring out the num
ber of poles, quite a task In Itself, nnd
he will ceitlfy to this to each company,
together with tho sum that each one
will be assessed under the piovl.slons of
the tecently passed tax ordinance.
The task of making a count uf the
poles was not without Intciestlng fea
tutes. Theie nrc seven companies
whose poles are along Caibondnle'u
stteets. These companies aie the Cen
tral Pennsylvania Telephone company,
Caibondalo Telephone company and the
Ameilcan Telephone nnd Telcgiaph
company, which Is the corporation that
opeiatcs the long-distance telephone,
and whose vlio. stretch fiom Schenec
tady to this cltj ; the Postal Telegraph,
the Western Tnlon, the Lacknwnnna
Valley Kloctric Light and Power Sup
ply company nnd the Scianton Railway
company. As each of the compnnles has
wires upon poles belonging to the other,
tepicentatlves of all these companies
had to accompany the city engineer In
older to mnke ceitaln what poles weie
to be nssesred against each company.
The count among other Intciestlng
facts showed that the Cnibondile Tele
phone eompiny hnd the gieatest num
ber of pules, anil will, nn a result, pay
the gieatest amount of the pole tax ot
nny one conipiny. something over $100
The Western I'nlon company v.ns the
most foitunate of nny in es-cnplng the
t.i It was found to own only one
solltat v pole, by teason of vvhlih It will
pty llftv cents jeatlv to the city treas
urj Ths pole was located In the Pela
watoand Hudson yards, This company
uses the polts ot other companies after
It enteis the cltj. and this accounts for
Its fioedom. almost, from taxation.
The humoious fact developed that the
ancient mllway company, with which
Constable Motnn and "Billy" Goidon,
of the tiactlon company, had something
to do. has four unused poles near tho

ELECTRICITY IN THE HOME.
Cheap Appliances Make It Available
for People of Moderate Means.
From the ew York Evcninfr Post It
It Is now possible for the owner of a
house or a boat to Introduce Into it a
great many of the latest applications
of electrical machinery, without going
bankrupt in the process, even if he is
not n rich man to start with The
featuie uf practical electrical work In
the past few yeais has been not so
much the Inciease In the number n'
uses to which electrlcltj has been put
ns the extrnorfllnaiy cheapening that
has brought the newly developed ap
pliances with the reach of a much
larger portion of the public.
For eximple. mlnature electric lamps,
which weie hardly mote than curiosi
ties five jears ago, can now be obtained
alrcadj- wlicd for decorative uses at
prices not beyond the teach of scatcely
nny one who undertakes dining room
or ball room decoiatlon. Intertwined
with smllax or with flowets, these tiny
star-like points of light, in appropriate
colors, can be emploj-ed effectively so
close to the spectator that the use of
the large Incandescent globes would be
out of the question. The price of n
j ear or two ngo. which is still asked
by some elcetrical contractors not
anxious to go into this paiticular line
of work, was $1 per lamp for an even
ing for the cmallest sizes. On the other
hand, n down-town contractor will now
furnish thirty lamps connected In series
to three of the largest size storage cells,
which will keep them burning a whole
evening, for $10, Including the work of
putting them In.
Another use for te mlnature lamps,
w hlch are now made by half a dozen
firms, is in the so-called "torch lamps"
or "travelers' lamps," variations of the
old-fashioned dark lantern, which light
at the touch of a button or spring. A
