The game promises to bp of moie than

evenly matched. The Carbondales will
leave on tho 12:lfi Delaware and llud
miii train, and .Manager Fox hopes to
take a large delegation of rooteis
along. I'lttston Is mi old time rival of
Crlmndale. (lerrll.y, the Crescents
shortstop, has gone to Si henectndy;
but Manager Fox propn.-es to get a
man fully as capable, so, with Murray
and Ilarte, the Inllrld will bp strong.
Honesdale wants another game with
the Crescents. Three times this soaj.011
tlie Maple City boys have bitten the

to say, however, that unless Hoiipsdale

not be able t retrieve Itself this year
as Manager Kox under 110 consideration
will go to Honesdale to play. It must

COTTAGE HOSE CO
TO RUN A FAIR
Tlie dnllnnt File Laddies of tho
South Side Will Entertain Their
Friends for a Week or Moie In
For several years the Cottage I lose
company has been trying to get the
city to give them a Imse house. Tllne
after time their champions In council
tried to push the necessary ordinance
through and their failure is now- a
matter of inuiili ipnl history. The ity
fatheis wouldn't stand for It. Not with
standing this setback, the brave lire
men, however, never lost hope. They
kept their company Intai I and. as lin
ns possible, participated In the doings
of their fellow-flreiiien. They are n
brave set nf buys and their effmts cer
tainly deserve success'.
The firemen have at last delcrinlned
to tackle the Job themselves and fnr
the purpose of raising funds fnr the
erection nf a suitable hnme they pro
pose to run a fair during the mouth of
November. It will be held in the Watt
building, beginning 011 Mondav. the
11th, and Hi" company proposes to
make It the innst elaborate iivent of
the kind wlil'li has ever been conduct
ed in tlie city. The same energy which
has been exhibited by the meinbeis
heretofore will bo infused into u)0
preparations for this event, and It Is
safe to say that their promise to make
it the most successful IIi'oiupii'x fair
ever held hereabouts will bo fnllllloil
to the letter.
The (Ire laddies propose tn Introdui e
some new and noe fentuies In addl
tion to the attractions customary to
such an enterprise. The best of talent
from all parts of the county will be
secured for the nightly entertainments
and 011 the opening day a firemen's
tournament will be held. Nothing In
tlie way of labor or expense will be
spared to make the realization of the
project fullyas auspicious as the plans.
The Cottagorn are llfty la number, and
hi this piojeit they have the sympathy
and should have the hourly financial
support of the entire community.
