Fear of More Cases Removed.
The iniitrantlnp about the home or
-Louis Clirc. In AVayniait, lias been re
.' moved. Hurt Hull, the only victim ot
smallpox in that village, has wholly re
covered and Is able to be about again.
!Mlss Davis, the trained nurse, who so
falthCully attended Hull, was discharged
, from the case on Saturday, when the
ittinrantlue was raised, and has re-
"tnrned to her home on the West Side in
' this city, in connection with Miss Pa

r ing this patient, it should be mentioned
that not only the Cliff family, but tins
".entire village of AVaymart heartily ac
knowledge the factor she bus been In
t. Hull's recovery and In keeping down
the dlseaae In the ullllcted household.
The Tribune lias been renuested by
AVaymart residents to make this ac-
1 knowledgment of Miss Davis' lmrolc
Xo other case but Hull's 'developed, a
fact that Is due In a large measure to
the Immediate steps taken by Dr. Cor
s6r, of AVaymart, and the outside physl-
ycians called into the case, In establish
''Ing and maintaining a rigorous iiuaran-
tlne so soon as It was even suspected
it lint Hull's aflliction was smallpox.
All danger Is now believed to be
passed, and affairs arc again taking
their normal course In AVaymart after
mi annoying, but necessarily unavoid
, uble, interruption of several weeks.

A THRILLING EXPERIENCE
Engineer Michael Murphy, of the O.
nnd W Hns the Cab Torn from
Over Him Had to Cling to tho
Michael Murphy, of Cottage street,
an engineer on tlie Ontario ami West
ern, met with nir experience curly Snl
urduy morning which seldom comes
Into the life of a railroad man. In
fact, his experience was quite unique
In some of Us details.
Murphy was coming out of Hancock
with his train, and In passing a switch
ho encountered the end of a freight car.
The force ot the collision ripped off
tho engineer's side of the cab as if It
were a paste-board box. Tho effect of
the happening swept through Mur
phy's mind so quickly that he had to
act like a "pedes of chain-llghttilng.
Acting utt Impulse, when he felt his
seat being torn from under htm, ho
grasped a tight hold of the throttle
and clung to it until he was able to
get a fooling on tbo side of the engine.
With some difficulty be brought tho
engine to a standstill and took time to
lcv tlie damnge that bad been done.
AVhen the ripping or the cab com
menced. Murphy was struck and
squeezed some, though not dangerous
ly. -rter a brier delay, the trip was
resumed, Murphy continuing at his
post by squeezing close to the throttle
and tiding the rest of the run to May
field Yard with no cab to shield him.
The happening wits duo to the fi eight
car on the switch not being run In
far enough. With the ordinary engine,
the passage could be made safely, but
the big hog engines, one of which was
at the head of this trip, tire consider
ably wider and cannot squeeze through
narrow places. To the neglect or over
sight in leaving the freight car so close
to the end of the switch, the accident
Engineer Murphy seems none tlie
worse for his experience, though lie
was thrilled with fear while the cab
was being ripped off. lly railroad men,
who can appreciate the danger of such
a situation as bis, his escape from be
ing torn or squeezed to death Is al
A NEW WRINKLE.
Belmont Resident Rings in a Fire
Alarm to Send a Special Delivery
Letter Mitchell Company ' Re
sponds. In the words of Chuck Connors, "It's
a shame to break the news." We blush
as we hear Honesdale chuckle. Uut
It's a fact. A Carbondale man yester
day afternoon turned in a lire alarm in
his endeavor to mall a special delivery
letter. It was what you might call spe
cial means for a special purpose. And
it wasn't so -1)11(1 after all, for it gives
the nelmout section the credit for the
best joke of the year.
Whether or not the man was calling
a mall carrier when he "opened the box,
pulled the hook once and let go," ac-couting-
to the card of instruction, he
did not say, but he sent the alarm In
all right, sending a thrill through the
firemen, hustling them to the hose
houses, and causing many a person to
pull out his Tribune lire alarm card to
locate tho box. Incidentally, he made
the Mitchell company members feel n
trifle warmer than tho weather by
bringing thein out on such a fool er
rand. The happening Is too much of it joke
to explain; In fact It can't be ex
plained. Uut so far as the man who
turned In the alarm Is concerned, It
was no joke; he was the most serious
man in Carbondale when he did his lit
tle turn. He bad a letter to post, n
special delivery letter. He found or
borrowed' a fire alarm key. He opened
the box, pulled the hook but he didn't
mall the letter. Instead, be caused all
the commotion mentioned before. He
thought he was going to mall the let
ter; be was sure of. It. Tn doing this,
be showed a becoming sense of the eter
nal lltni'Sri of things. Special lWthods
for special missions, hence tho special
mail box and tlie special lire alarm. We
know Honesdale will smile, and we're
smiling ourselves. It's something that's
worth a smile.
We might try to explain how tlie mis
take was made, but that would be
spoiling a good thing. And maybe wo
couldn't explain to our own satisfac
tion. AVe'U let well enough alone, and
smile with the rest of the world at
what is perhaps the limit In ringing the
changes on' the uses of the lire alarm
The alarm canio In about 2 o'clock,
front box II, corner Oak and Ilelinont.
The Mitchells responded, and though a
little choleric at llrst. they were well
repaid when they learned of the serious
joke of the mistaken man who Is a
boarder lit one or tho houses In that
vicinity. It's likely he'll be buying cig
ars for the next month,

This afternoon at H o'clock there will
SMOTHER A COUGH.
You can smother a cough
with your hand but you can't
cure it that way. Some medi
cines only smother coughs.
Scott's Emulsion cures them.
Old coughs and deep-rooted
coughs can't be cured until
the inflammation which causes
them has been replaced by
That is exactly the kind of
thorough work Scott's Emul
sion does. It changes the
entire nature of the throat and
lungs so that there is nothing
to cough about.

Son of Select Councilman Thomas
Barrett Will Recover.
Thomas Iturrelt, jr., son ot Select
Councilman Thomas Barrett, who wub
operated on Friday, while In a desper
ate condition from appendicitis, tuts
made n remarkable rally and Is now out
of dntiger. Lust 'evening it wns given
out at Dr. Wheeler's hospital, whero he
Is a patient, that his pulse, tempera
ture and respiration was ouch normal.
Thin favorable Indications, while
hoped for, were n source of surprise to
the hospital stuff, nnd oven tho inOBt
sanguine expectations were surpassed
lu the developments lu the young man's
case. Barrett, when ho eanio to the
hospital, was lu a condition In which
the chances of his getting well were al
most gone, even lu the event of an
operation. The operation was seized
upon as the one chance of snatching
him from death, and It was n lucky one,
as developments have proven.
The friends of the young man and of
his family will be relieved and cheered
by tills good news. ,
THE DAY AT SCRANT0N.
A Sad, and Not Even Glorious, Day
for the Crescents.
During the Spanish war we used to
read In the press dispatches that usual
ly when Uncle Sam walloped tho life
out of the Spaniards it was a "sad, but
glorious day for Spain."
Well, the Scrnnton league team wal
loped the life out ot the Crescents In a
way on Saturday, but It was not a
glorious day for Carbondale. AVhat
glory there was, was to be found in the
pitching of Billy Smith, who hereafter
will bo the idol of Carbondale base ball
enthusiasts. He raised himself to tills
by his really remarkable pitching
against the big men of the Scrnnton
team. Some of the Scrnnton base ball
writers would make out that It was due
to Smith's erratic work at times that
tlie Scrnnton hitters could not get a
line on him nnd that thirteen of them
were struck out by him. They point
out that be gave nine men base on balls
during five Innings. The truth Is that
had Umpire Southard been more cor
rect on his strike Judgment, not half
tills number would have walked. Sev
eral times Smith bad two strikes on a
batter, when Southard called the third
strike a. ball, simply because It didn't
fairly cut the plate.
It was the opinion or numerous rair
minded Scrnntonlans that Smith made
a. remarkable showing against the
Scranton team, and they were likewise
outspoken In their adverse opinions ot
Southard's poor judgment of strikes
pitched by Smith.
As to the rest of the game well, the
Crescents have themselves to blame.
They made no preparation for the game,
to. speak of, all of the players on tho
team not having come together at any
one time before this season. This ex
hibition game should have been ar
ranged for to take place ut the end ot
the season, when the Crescents would
have been in trim after having trimmed
Honesdale et al. It was tbo greatest
case ot' stage fright, from lack of prac
tice, that tho Crescents ever showed.
The least important part of the game
to Carbondallans was that the score
