MRS. JICSSIK .TONKS. wife of Albert
n. Jones, formerly of this city, but now
located In Trenton, N. J., passed away
yesterday ..morning at .1 o'clock at the
, residence on Wayne street, this city.
Mrs. Jones had been a sufferer for
over a year from diabetes, which caused
her death, A few weeks ago she joined
her husband at Trenton, hoping that
the change would so benefit her she
might remain there, near her husband.
The first few days spent In the Jersey
capital were beneficial; then Mrs. Jones
took an alarming change. She weak
ened to such a degree that It was
deemed prudent to have her return at
once to Carbondnle. Her weakness
Rrcw alarmingly and Mr. Jones was
hurriedly summoned here Tuesday
night. Mrs. Jones sunk slowly until she
passed away during the early hours of
yesterday morning. The end was hap
pily peaceful and edifying, those dear
est to the passing wife and mother be
, Ing beside her.
Mrs. Jones was the daughter of Mr.
nnd Mrs. I.. C. Wcatherby. 7:1 Wayne
street, and was born In Clifford August
13, 1S73. The greater part of her life
was spent In I'urbondnle. Tier friends
were legion Indeed and she retained
them to tin! Inst by her warm-hearted
spirit and her gentleness under all clr
' cumstances. Ilcr sufferings were keen
nnd sore during her long allllctinn, but
her patience nnd fortitude concealed
this fact from those about her. The
news of her death will be depressing to
her close .friends nnd a source of sin
cere regret to all within the circle of
acquaintanceship. The warm-hearted
sympathies of the community go out to
Mr. Jones In the unlooked for grief
which overwhelms him.
Mrs. Jones' survivors are her hus
band, two dnughters, Gladys, aged
seven, and Catherine, aged two; her

HOYLE succumbed yesterdny morning
nt 6 o'clock at the residence of her
daughter, Mrs. Carrie Walters, at
Church street and Salem avenue.
Mrs. Hoyle hud been ailing for u
number of years. In March last she
came to this city from her home in
Honesdule. preliminary to going to
Green nidge, where her husband is em
ployed under the Delaware and Hudson
company. She remained here and was
able to be about, though In frail health.
Saturday she was taken with conges
tion of the lungs. Heart failure was
the consequence, causing the end yes
Mrs. Hoyle was born In Waymart
April 10, lS3r, and came to Cnrbondule
'In childhood. Ilcr mother died when
she was but six years old and she then
made her home with her grandparents.
Her grandfather was the late Deacon
Jessup, who was first among the early
settlers in Cnrbondule. Ills Identity
with the very parly history of the
Pioneer City Is an interesting one, for
he made his abode in those days In the
old log tavern which cared for so many
of the newcomers to the sort of wild
erness here at the time. Mrs. Hoyle
spent n number of her earliest years
under the rugged roof of this historic;
habitation. In her young womanhood,
Mrs, Hoyle was a member of the First
Presbyterian church, was active In all
Its work nnd sang In the choir, In 1S,"4
' she married Silas Hoyle at Ilonesdnle.
to which place she bad just moved, and
where she lived until her temporary re
moval to this city In March last. Mrs.
Hoyle's wedded life was a happy onp,
marked with all that Is the portion of
the faithful nnd forbearing wife and the
loving nnd self-sacrificing mother, The
separation from his devoted helpmnte
after nearly a half century of such hap
py and blessed association Is u deep
sorrow for Mr. Hoyle.
Mrs. Hoyle's acquaintance was ex
tensive and the circle of her friends
was wide. Respect nnd love were shown
her, won by the womanly qualities
which made her character forceful und
bcnutlful. Her death will call forth re
gret throughout this section, where she
was so well kVownmnd respected,

Buttons and Buckles for Fall
It Is not going to bo a year of much pomp nnd glittor nnd splendor but all of the new dreBB
trimmings that have come are beautiful with a quiet, rich, subtle beauty that will linger long after
tho noise nnd dazzle of tho Coronation months liavo died away.
Fall dress-goods turned out to be uncommonly plain In color nnd weave perhaps for that reason
trimmings are more In demand than usunl. At any rate, garnitures, braids nnd passementeries are a
necessary part of Fall gowns nnd wraps, to tho minds of tho great Paris makers, and the rest of the
world bids fair to follow In the same Idea-pnth.
The right colors are black and white, though tho peacock combination of blue and green Is a favor
ite, and little touches of Oriental color have crept In, like tongues of flame, to light up many dark
Paris has sent us more than her usual share this Pall year by year she slips further ahead In
the art of making lovely garnitures. But besides the robes and appliques and passementeries from
France, there are hosts of braids and braid trimmings from Switzerland; jets from Germany, and a
brilliant array of fancy buttons and buckles from every country where they are best made.
PENDANTS Little drops hanging from an ornament are one of the newest things. They are
very good In black.
Chenille fringes are in the air already on the gowns and wraps that Paris couturiers are fash
ioning. Velvet crops out everywhere, not in heavy masses, but in little delicate touches that are very
effective. This year, for the first time, it has been introduced into appliques.
Slednllions and separable gimps that can be cut apart between any two figures are among the
most practical as well as the most beautiful trimmings that have come.
Spangles promise to be even more popular than last year, which is saying a good deal for them.
They cover many of the most beautiful robes or unmade gowns in glittering profusion.
CORDELIERS Bits of fancy braid to be put on gowns in the style of frogs are among the
newest ideas, and somo are very elaborate and very beautiful. ,

Perhaps it's the coal scarcity. Maybe people think there will be few opportunities to get warm

Not the very heavy, but the medium weight it's unwise to jump from gauze to heavy wool.
