', Great Sachem Charles R. Wlllet, o
Harrlsburg, and Grand Keeper of
' Wampum Thomas K. Donnelly, of
Philadelphia, Entertained by An-
thraclto City Brethren.
Lackawanna tribe, No. 208, hold u
ry interesting meeting last evening,
rnen the groat sachem of this state,
Brother Charles It. Wlllet, of llarrls
l burg, und Brother Thomas K. Donnel
ly, of Philadelphia, great keeper of
wampum, were present.
Great Sachem Wlllet gave an lntor-
eating and profitable talk pertaining to
the order, which was appreciated by
2 the members.
Brother Donnelly, better known as
the silver-tongued orator, was at one
time a prominent worker among labor
organizations In Philadelphia. He
J spoke for some time upon the good
J being done by the Red Men in this'
i state, presenting statistics to prove
5 that the order Is one of the most sub-
' stantlal of this country.
J Brothers Wlllet and Donnelly are on
' a tour of Inspection of this section and

, tercstlngly In regard to tho habits and
customs of the aborlgnes of that coun-
Lackawaxcn tribe members were
' quite flattered to entertain last night's
visitors, and If their coming was not
somewhat unexpected, an elaborate
' programme In their honor would, un-
i doubtedly have been prepared and ob
served. T,he coming of Grand Warn-
' pum Keeper Donnelly was a particular
reason for felicitation, as ho is one of
tho most distinguished Red Men In
the country, a man of high Ideals, cul
ture and ability. The remembrance of
this, his ilrst visit to Carbondalo, will
be forever cherished by his brethren
of tho Anthracite city.
BULL DOG GOT AWAY.
Exciting Chewing Match at Main
Street and Seventh. Avenue.
A man walked down Main street, be
tween 7 and 7.30 yesterday morning
proudly leading a bull dog; one with
a. funny face. At Seventh avenue, the
animal with the corrugated features
' got away. He made for a bunch of
shy curs that Btood shivering against
the Florodora posters on the bill boards
on the corner and In an instant there
was somethin' doin.
Tho air was filled with a chorus of
yelps that rivalled a sausage factory
that you sometimes read about In the
funny papers. The puppies and their
bigger brothers scattered like a crowd
at the old Blazing Stump when Con
stable Ed Neary hove in sight. Bull
dogs ure not known to chew the
rag, but they can chew dog
meat until further orders. This
one did the same thing. He got a dog
between his jaws that would scarcely
make a good-sized breakfast; and ho
held on like Honesdulo is clinging to
the game that it 'won from us. There
was excitement galore while the yel
low dog's continued.
- "Are you on?" If asked, Mr. Bulldog
would probably be answered with a
bob of his nbbrevated tall that would
mean "bet yer life; and you can't
loose me." After much apprehension,
anxiety, excitement, fear, trembling and
a tolerable qliota of cussing, the ten
acious, homely dog let loose, but not
until he had torn one dog, and made a
few others feel that the sausage man
was after them.
Tho man with tho dog resumed his
trip, prouder than when he struck the
AL. JONES' SUCCESS.
He Is Prospering in Trenton-
Move His Family There.
It will be pleasant news to hl3 wide
circle of friends in this valley to learn
that A. It. Jones, formerly of this city,
late half owner of the Saturday Re
view, is prospering In his new field in
Trenton, N. J., and Is meeting with the
success that was predicted when h
left Carbondalo for the hustling Jersey
An interesting announcement, which
can bo taken as an Indication of Mr.
Jones' success, is that he proposes to
move his family to Trenton. Mrs.
Jones and their two children, who re
mained behind in Carbondale when he
loft for Now Jersey, in tho spring will
go to Trenton next Monday to take up
their residence, provided the chunge
agrees with Mrs. Jones, who haB been
in frail health for some time. Her
condition now, however, Is much im
proved, which will bo gratefully re
ceived among her many friends. Tho

Long-Delayed Exodus of Campers

Two camping parties are now hold

After today the honor of thevsports
of the borough of Carbondale will have
been satisfied. The dream, the ambi

The genial and witty 'Squire Gildoa
will be our guest, together with a host

accommodate and rightly receive them,
we have reserved the front row of the
bleachers, where they may sit, while
they aie on good behavior, which it is
hoped will last until after tho third
inning at least. Furthermore, they will
bo saluted from the press box at
reasonable intervals, through the Press
club's megaphones. This Is a1 special
honor which it Is hoped will be appre
ciated by Archbaldlans.
Our Owney will pitch, which means
that he will be the special target for
the men from six miles down the val
ley. There was some thought of warm
ing up another pitcher, who Is likely
to become a member of the Crescents,
but later judgment prevailed and
"Owney" will do the trick in order to
spare the Archbald crowd the disap
pointment of not seeing what It a de
cided railty in that borough, namely,
the champion pitcher of the valley pitch
a game as it ought to be pitched. Wo
likewise trust that this consideration
will not be overlooked.
It might be suggested that the Cres

themselves today; Archbald can mnko
enough noise at one time for a dozen
