MEN BEFORE 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, nnd In a shott time the genhl proptie tor hod n patronage that embraced the leading business men of the town It was also made the training quar ters of boxets. who appealed in and about Scranton dutlng that petlod when "meets" weie the eian- In Scran ton Mr Leo was also proptletor of a hotel at Maj field, where many a royal enteitalnmeut was provided for those who were lucky to be dose friends of the fat, good-natuted land lot d. "Hon" now has a fine hotel at Ca dosla. wheie he happily spends his time making others hnnpv, particular ly his Carbondale and Scranton friends who vWt him 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 man', IsjHlvvays on the alert to upbuild antjj nflTft the town that Is his home an$ (he men who are Ills fellows.

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 thing worth hearing and hraul It tightly told, nfter n chut with him.

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 ial, ready of wit and a firm believer In 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 tle of pills. His friends are to be found everywhere and he Is constantly increasing his friendships. TEACHERS WERE ELECTED. Special Meeting of Foil Township School Board.

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 city line.

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 patent has jut been granted foi an Improvemen' In the shape of a lamp and batter made flat, to nt the pocket, like a folding camera. This will bum for ten hours with a slngl" charge, which costs 25 cents, and In the lamp Itself will be ornamental In finish and available for gift purpose?. It Is not yet on the market Ornamental candles with mlnature lights at their tips and dry batteries In the candlesticks below are coming into eome populailtj. Another novelty Is the clock with the tiny lamp before Its face, to be Uchted by n pressure of the finger of any one who wants to know tho time of night. Electilc flash lamps for photoghaphlc use are also new. There are several new patterns of electric fans run by batteries, for use In rooms not supplied with electric current, and many of them are sold. They work satisfactory, but dealers say that the cost of their maintenance makes them fully expensive luxuries. If tho power of any kind, as from a waterfall or windmill, Is available, the owner of a house beyond the reach of electric light wires can now Install n plant of his own very chenplj. When water power is not to be had, a gaso line engine is considered about the most practicable way of tunning a dynamo for ube In an oidlnary country house With curtent In the house, there Is scarcely any limit to the use to which electricity can be put. Flatlions, cull ing Irons, pumping engines, coffee mills, co cteam freezers and sewing machines nre a few of the commonest applications. A motor for a sewing mnchlne now cost only $18 to :o, and Is not very expensive to maintain. Many aio being put In private houses. Elo cttlc cooking appliances, Including chafing dlshe nnd tea kettles, tiro most convenient nnd cleanlj', hut use up n great deal of current and ate cor tespondlngly expensive to keep In use. Telephones aie replacing speaking tubes In most of tho up. town houses now being built. A two-station tele phone can be bought and Installed for less than $10. The cheaper In struments guaranteed only for distances less than a mile Between houses and stables 01 outbuildings In the country they are also coming to be vety common.
