STORIES OF THE STREET.
Some Amusing Happenings That
Bring Laughter with Their Tell
ing. The members of the Columbia Hose
company lmvo u good story to laugh
over this week. It Is sit the expense of
one of the younger members, Thomas
Coleman. AL the recent benellL for
Charles Hull, a brother member, a
number of palms were procured to add
to the decorations of the dance In
"Watt's hall. On Sunday, air. Coleman,
in walking down Church street, noticed
that a window in the hall was opened,
permitting a cold breeze to blow on the
"Egad," thought Mr. Coleman, "this
is a shame; those palms will be fro.en
and will look like a lot of wilted sun
flower stalks by tomorrow night. I
must do my duly ere they perish."
Coleman hastened about town and,
locating a key for the hall, hurried (to
shut the mlschlevlous-looking window.
At the same time he observed the palms
didn't appear as fresh as they might.
"A drop, more or less, of water won't
hurt them," ho commented mentally;
and, procuring a vessel, ho poured
about a quart of water nrouail- the
roots of each palm. Returning "Vi the
hose house, he incidentally spoke fff his
work.1 Before ho had finished; there
was a titter, which grew into laughter'
that tilled the company's quarters.

would conduct himself when called
upon to bo presented.
"Say." he whispered to one of the
members, "I don't want lo make any
breaks, and I wish you would 'put mo
next' to what I'm to do."
Unfortunately for him, he was turn
ing for help to the most confirmed cap
ital joker of the society.
. "Now, what you want to be sure to
do." said the joker, as he realized that
the new member was at his mercy, "Is
to call for refreshments for every one
.when you nre called on. And beforo
their glasses nre empty, you want to
fill them up again. Do this three times
. and you'll stand pat with the crowd."
"Drink to the health of the now mem
ber," said the victim when he was pre
sented. "Fill them up again," ho ex
claimed when the glasses were lowered.
The members looked at one another,

hour's round dancing, struck a popular
chord with the lovers of thu dancing
art. The dancers were In their element

fore. The music was entrancing, and
but few could resist, and the floor was
always crowded by the merry dancers.

mittee early in the evening.
'During the progress of the fair the
Columbia boys have entertained nearly
five thousand persons, ami not one of
those was' dissatisfied with the treat

HONESDALE "PIPE" STORY,
Excitement Over Cost of Hull Trial
Lends to Pitiful Exaggeration.
Hnrkcn to litis Honesdnlo "pipe"
story In the latest lsstie of the Wayno
"Tho cost of thd Hull trial to Wnyno
county so far amounts to $1,001.29, be
sides indirect costs of which there Is no
basis for tin estimate. In addition to
this, H. J, Ncary, a Cnrbondale con
stable, has presented a bill of nearly
$1,000 for detective services Ho asks
M.CO per day from the dale of the find
ing of Snhoonover'H body till thu trial,
nnd nt tho same time ho received pay
for serving subpoenas, covering n por
tion of the same time. For this alleged
service no benefit was derived, as he
furnished no material evidence for tho
trial, Lackawanna county Individuals
tiro well schooled In the art of making
bills of costs for taxpayers to liquid
ate." There Is so much falsity In these
characteristic Honesdnlo newspaper
rumblings, Hint the easiest way lo dis
pose of It Is to say that tho man re
sponsible for them was either "kidded"
by tho persons who gave him tho Infor
mation, or ho has made such a willful
exaggeration of facts that he owes tin
apology as long as his arm to Constable
The fact is that Constable Xeary has
sent In no bill ror a thousand dollars.
Ho has sent In a bill for $470, which Is
but meagre compensation for his ser
vices, as- compared with the foes which
are usually paid In such cases, nml
such ns were paid by tho county of
Wayne, Itself, when It had Phikerton
detectives doing nothing but shadowing
everybody against whom there was
suspicion In connection with the escape
of McCabe, who was executed for mur
der. Constable Xeary was engaged by
the district attorney to collect evidence
In the Hull case, tind has papers in his
possession to this effect. His suit to
secure what his labors in the Hulf case
earned will be only one of a half-dozen
or more that will be Instituted by Cur
bohdallans who were denied the full
share of fees that, ns witnesses, they
were entitled lo under the law.
