A NIGHT IN THE COUNTRY.
Successful Dnnce at Dundaff by Bon
The most enjoyable dance in the
country this hummer was conducted on
Tuesday night in Decker's hall at Dun
daff. It was conducted under the patronage
of the Bon Ton Heading Club, of Car
boidale, and attracted a throng of
young people from this city. The
pleasures of the affair, the drive Into
the country, the dunce and the social
commingling, were so attractive that
fa'O WAY BACK.
Or Feed so You Can Keep Up.
People must be well fed in this world
if they are expected to do good work.
A carpenter with poor tools must take
less wages nnd handle the poor Jobs.
So In life, the person with a weak, badly
nourished body must get out of the way
for tlio strong ones.
A hchool teacher writes from Ver-
.mont, She had been compelled to take
a little, backwoods school for small
wages because she had not tho strength
to conduct a better school.

CASE OF SMALL-POX
William Thompson Aged 18 Years
of Hospital Street, Is Suffering
from a Mild Attack The Outbreak
Charged to the Visit to This City
of Archie Lewis, of Ashland, Who
Is Now a Small-pox Patient In
Small-pox which has been within n
few miles of Cnrbondnie within tho
past few months, but seemed to keep
decently far away from the town, Is
at last In our midst.
There Is a case located In tho homo
of Andrew Thompson on Hospital
street. Tho victim Is William Thomp
son, his 18-year-old son. The case Is
a mild one, the type of the disease being
The origin of the Thompson caso
Is traced to Archie Lewis, of Ashland,
who Is now a small-pox patient In
Jermyn. I-ewls It will be recalled,
came from Ashland a few weeks ago
to visit at the homo of Mr. and Mrs.
Dald Thomas, of Bacon street,
Jermyn. He also came to this city,
visiting for several days among Cnr
bondale acquaintances, the Thompson
house being among the places he staid.
On his return to Jermyn he was com
pelled to go to a physician to seek
treatment for headache and a rash on
his face. Tho physician pronounced the
case one of- small-pox. Since then,
Jewls has been -Isolated In a tent In
the borough of Jermyn.
Tlie discovery of tho Thompson case
was quite accidental. Yesterday a
physician was passing the house on
Hospital street, when he wns called In
to prescribe for the sick lad. When
the doctor examined the youth, he was
struck by tho similarity of the symp
toms to thoj-e of small-pox. He was
convinced that the boy was suffering
from a mild attack of varlloid.
To be positive that the case Is one
of small-pox, word has been sent to
Dr. J. -W, Houser, of, Scranton, the
physician who is in charge of all of
the eases in that city. Dr. Houser will
come to Carbondale today, it Is expect
ed, to pass on the case.
Tho Thompson house has been quar
antined temporal lly by Sanitary Police
man Moffltt, who has promptly taken
every precaution that he knows to
check the spread of, tho disease.
The absence of a board of health In
Carbondale at this time Is deeply de
plored. Tho fact that there Is no board
of health, It will be recalled, Is due
wholly to politics, politics that were
condemned on every hand yesterday
when the presence of small-pox became
known. There Is no board of health,
It might ho mentioned as a reminder,
because tho names submitted by Mayor
O'ls'ell have been held up in select
council, owing to the failure to obtain
pledges for the support of- a candidate
of the office of secretary of the board.
The day after Lewis visited Carbon
dale and It was known that ho had
smull-pox, a Carbondale physician gave
notice of the danger thnt there wus of
small-pot occurring In the places that
Lewis visited. Tho Thompson house
was particularly mentioned and it was
suggested that the necessary precau
tions be taken towards confining tho
fabliy. However, there was no board
of health to take ofllclal notice of tho
physician's warning. Now It will cer
tainly be hard to foretell tho conse
quences as Thompson Had been around
a good deal with Lewis and had even
gone to Jermyn with him.
The proper thing, the thing that Is
demanded, Is that select council, that
Is those responsible for the holding up
of the names of the appointees of
Mayor O'Nell meet at once and take
action In order to permit of the re
organization of the board of health.
The public health and safety demand
such action as against the satisfaction
of small political purposes.
Interesting Night for Members of
Class of '02 Carbondale High
Peihaps the most Interesting of tho
exercises In which they will participate
were the clriss day doings of tho class
uf 'Oi of the Carbondalo high school in
tho splendidly decorated auditorium
of the Central school building last eve
ning. While of particular Interest to the
class members the programnio had
much to hold the Inteiest and to en
tertain tho unusual audience that
thronged the auditorium.
The regrettable feature of tho even
ing was the disappointment shured in
by so many who were unable to gain
admittance, some of whom were mem
bers of families wherein there were
graduates. There was much criticism
of tho arrangements for accommodating
tho throng that unsuccessfully sought
admission. Six or seven time's the num
ber of persons who could be accommo
dated had beep invited and twice tho
seating capacity of the hall wus on

A rumor Is being circulated throughout
tlermyn and Maytleld that on effort was
made at tho last meeting of the Jermyn

ciation by some of tho merchants, to all
go on a cash basis. Whoever stalled this
rumor has evidently done It for selfinh
motives, for tho mutter has never been
brought up nt the association meetings,
nor even discussed. Each and every mer
clicant Is conducting his own business as
he sees fit; trusting whom ho plenses,

. Bathing Suits for Women
We are more particular than our forebears
know more of sanitary conditions, and believe
more In the ounce of prevention. So we tnlce
our own bathing suits, which fit; and get a
style that is becoming into the bargain, and
luxuriate in the cleanliness of tho age.
A bathing suit that clings can't be becom
ing, so mohair, which clings least of all, is con
sidered best. These prices :
$2, $2.50, $3, $3,50, $4, $5, $10 $11
Also an excellent quality of black silk
taffeta. Price $16.50.
The entire department is filled with them. All a third less than usual.
Mostly Foulards, 39c, 49c, 59c, 69c, 79c, 89c, 99c, $1.19.
Tents for the Children
Lawn tents made of good strong duck just the thing for the boys and girl's
