Ono pound of Grape-Nuts has more

THE TOWNSHIP BOARD.
School Directors Elect Officers for
This Year Interesting Meeting.
At an Interesting meeting, held In
the Powderly school house yesterday
afternoon, the school board of Carbon
dale township reorganized ns follows;
President, W. J. Gordon; secretary,
James Gcrrlty; treasurer, Thomas
Qulnn. No other business was con
sidered, Mr. Gordon enters upon his fifth year
as president of the school district.
The result of the election was sqmo
v.hat of a Btirprlso. Thomas Qulnn,
tho secretary last year, was named as
treasurer, to succeed M. J. McDonald,
who hold the office for twelve years.
James Gcrrlty's election as secretary
was somewhat' unlocked for, as It was
believed that President Gordon, tho
(indent chairman for four years,
would bo nampd for that ofilco. A deal
"or agreement, however, was made over
the offices of secretary und treasurer,
which restrited in Gerrlty and Qulnn's
The board will meet this morning to
fix the mlllnge for this year. There Is
likely to be an Interesting time before
this Is disposed of.
ALL OUT BUT POUR
The Strike Order Obeyed in Carbon
dale Except by Quartette of Engi
neers of D. & H. Co. .
Only four of the engineers and pump
tenders In Carbondale are at work in
disregard of the strike order that was
made effective yesterday throughout
the anthracite region.
The four at work are in the employ
of the Delaware and Hudson company.
Three are at No. 1 and one at No. 3
All of the firemen went out. Their
abandonment of work, however, did
not Interfere with the operation of the
pumps. Their places were filled by
foremen and other minor bosses. The
shutting down of the Racket Brook
washery, which took place yesterday,
contributed severnl hands to take the
place of the men who went out.
The engineers at work are not af
filiated with the United Mine Workers.
They regard the strike order tas Im
prudent, and they do not see how they
could better themselves by leaving
their places at the present time.
There was not only no trouble at any
of the plnces but there was not even
the thought of any disturbance or In
terference. In this respect Carbondale
Is perhaps giving the officials the least
worry. They have shown this by not
maintaining any kind of a barricade,
means of resistance or a patrolling
force of any sort. Of course, there are
employes acting ns coal and Iron po
lice, but the Delaware and Hudson
company's pioperties are not sur
rounded with any lines of fences to
keep trespassers off.
CAN TTJHN ON WATER,
Park Fountain Resolution Passes
Select Council Other Business.
The water In the public troughs, and
In the park fountain, will probably be

council resolution directing that this be
done was concurred In by select council
at Its meeting last night.
In response to the appeal of Messrs.
Moon, Burnard and Edwards, residents
of Eastern avenue, who appeared be
fore council, It was decided not to
change the name of the avenue to
"Beth Eden" place, but to have It re
main Eastern avenue. The requests for
the removal of a tree at the Intersect
tlon of "Wayne street and the opening of
the avenue to Lincoln avenue were re
ferred to committee.
The ordinance providing for a hydrant
at Fallbrook and Scott streets was re
ported favorably, and the Masters' ordi

Prof. Bryden Resumes His Duties,
Pi of. W. D. Iiryden, principal of the
Carbondale high school, w,as back at
his duties yesterday after an absence
of a week, duo to an attack of grip,
which seriously threatened to develop
Into pneumonia. While perhaps a rest
of a few weeks would be quite advis
able for Mr, Bryden, he waived this on
account of the urgent need-ot his presence-
to dispose of the rush of work,
examinations, commencement, etc, In
cident to the close of school.
Pacer Exchanges Hands.
Abo Sahm has purchased tho pacer
owned by J. H. Nicholson. Mr. Suhm

Scranton dally, though she will return
to this city each evening,
In Miss Median's promotion a well
merited compliment In paid her abil

feel a pride In the advancement, since
she was flatteringly chosen from ft

larger experience than she'. The an

laden with baggage.
It Is refreshing to hear that as yet
there has been no severe depression of

the leading merchants of tho town say
that tho business for tho month of May

Alderman William Morrison, of the

Says; "I had been suffering from

Just as it was toward tho latter part of
tho frco period with which Doctor Bycre,
his mothod of treatment, and his pur
poses wero introduced to tho pcoplo of
Scranton ; JUBt as it was when tho fam
ous Quaker physician found hlmsolf ut

All that could be done was to care for as

that In giving tho $10 offer for tho lust

He furthermore agrees, that if the
