The News of
Some few -months Intel:, when the
news cuino from Hunbury that the
Knights of 1'ythltis lmil voted Curbnn
dnle iih the choice for next year's suite
convention, the l'ythlnus nt home, and
other citizens who took tin Interest In
tile project, exclaimed as of one mind,
"That's what Harry Masters paid he
would do."
This Incident la cited tin an example
of how Common Councilman W. H.
Masters, chairman of that body, works
to achieve n luii'iiose when ho sets out.
The light was conducted under cir
cumstances, dlscouraglmr to most men,
Chairman uf Common Council

but "flurry," mk Mr. Masteis' Intimate
friends call him. Is m.itle nf sterner
'stuff, and plte hlnjr In he won out for
f'nrbondnlo by a vote of about (! to 1
'ngiilnft the hottest competitor, the city
nf Rradlncr, whne workers had a oer
tincd check nf several thousand dollars
from the city's board of trade to help
finch the claim for the convention. Mr.
Masters had no big checks, but be got
the convention for his home, and ne::t
August Curbondulc will have the big
Rest convention, in the Knights of
Pythias gathering, in its fifty years as
a city.
The stlek-to-lllveness that Mr. Mas
ters showed on this occasion Is char
acteristic of him in all ills relations. A
. fighter from way back when he believes
he is light, lie hammers nwny fear
lessly and tirelessly until lie wins. This
is what lie does in council, wheie his
constituents' needs arc being partleu
laily cared for, and if there's any doubt
of this ask a taxpayer of the Fifth
ward whn takes the interest in doings
of council that .ill citizens should.
Though Mr. Matters has been in Car
bondale scarcely more than a dozen
ycais, he has hewed out a place for
himself that puts him among the most
conspicuous in the eye and the favor
of the public. Recognized tills year as
the Republican leader in common
council, he was elected chairman with
out even a suggestion of opposition.
The same enviable standing that ho
has in this body is true of the other
organizations In which he Is a forceful
influence. In Carbondale lodge of the
Knights of Pythias he has been sec
retary for eleven terms, and can retain
the office, it is safe to say, so lone as
It Is bis pleasure. This, however. Is
the lesser of the honors he enjoys
among Pythian". At the last state
convention he was appointed deputy
.grand chancellor, which he is filling
with characteristic fidelity and grace.
His acquaintance In the circle of
Knights of Pythias winds Its way
round the big Keystone state.
Mr. Masters' social side Is the pleas
nntest and wherever his personality
shows itself, there you will llnd Harry's

Unwelcome Gypsies Hustle Out of
City on the Sabbath.
To our dearly beloved brethren In
Archbald we give notice that the mot
ley band of gypsies which came this
way, after n profitable stay In Hones
dale dear old Honcsdale innde a fly
ing trip through Cnrbondalo yesterday
In the direction of the borough of pot
hole fame. Some one said the cross
your - hand - with - u - quarter artists
learned of the money that Arehbald
Inns came Into possession of In that
great ball game or recent fame, In
which the Brothers Plttston were some
peaches, ond they are bent on raking
off some of the pile. Maybe this Is why
the gypsies hustled through Carbon
dub' yesterday with smiling faces that
rellected pleasant antlclpal'Ions.
It was a curious procession, the half
dozen wagons of those "gypsies" that
came down Halcm avenue and onto
Main street about It o'clock yesterday
forenoon. The band came from Cape
Horn, near No. !, which was chosen as
n camp on Thursday, after climbing
the Mnoslcs from Honcsdale, the dear
old place. The move was made at the
rcfiuest of the ofllcers of the law. And
It was a lively move, for these snme
plctuicsnue gypsies acquired a most
wholesome lespect and fear of the law
In Carbondnle, which will stand tliein
In good stead when they may be In
well, say Archbnld. From the time
Column street was reached until the
city line at the southern end of town
was reached, the horses were kept on
the run. Their business air Indicated
that they appreciated that there would
lie something doing If they paileyed
The first of the procession was a cov
ered wagon, decorated thus: "People's
Grocery." The next read. "Neopolittm
Ice Cream Mocks;" then "Medicated
Malt Cough Drops:" "Joanno Longo,
Fruiterer," and the last the most ap
propriate of all: "Market Wagon; All
Kinds of fireen floods." The whole
out fit looked as If it might have been
purchased at a sale of unclaimed ex
press packages. From the rear of the
wagons peeped the grimy and ill-vis-nged
countenances of the gypsy folks.
They are gone, with the hope that they
will forget the way back.
M. J. Hornn, Weil-Known Carbon
dalian, Well Located His Succes
sor. M. J. Hor.m, of the West Side, one
of the bent-known young men of the
town, who went to New York city a
few weeks ago, has accepted a posi
tion there and will remain.
Mr. Hornn is well located. He Is
window dresser for Saranoff, the hatter,
at Broadway and Twenty-ninth street,
men who are much sought for in New
York city. Ho has ability In this line,
which was amply demonstrated and ap
preciated by ("arbondallans during his
lung employment In Singer's park cloth
ing house. Mr. Koran's departuip
from this city will be keenly regretted
among the numerous friends, who re
gard him highly. He was president of
the Clerk's union and active In the
Father Mathew society and the Colum
bia Hose company.
Domlnick Larkin, of this city, recent
ly with the Collins clothing house, of
Scranlon, is Mr. Koran's successor. His
wide acquaintance and his efficiency
make him a valuable man.
Burning Outhouse Near No. 1 Calls
Out Columbias.
An outhouse located beyond No. 1
breaker of the Delaware and Hudson
caught aliie about 10.30 Saturday night.
Someone, fearing a disastrous blaze,
turned In an alarm from Box OS.
The Columbias responded, but when
the box was reached, after a long run,
no one was In sight and there was no
sign of fire. This gave rise to the be
lief that the alarm was false. The shed,
however, was probably destroyed be
fore the company reached the box. The
box is located fully a half-mHe beyond
the city line, and even a dwelling might
be destroyed, and one has been burned
to the ground, before a fire company
could cover the distance and lay a line
of hose. In this connection It might be
mentioned that there is wretched lire
protection In this vicinity, one hydrant
doing service for the entire district, it
is woefully Inadequate.

Yeisley because he had
Kidney Trouble.
Mr. Ycliley was much discouraged till
a friend recommended Dr. David Ken
nedy's Favorite kemedy and it cured him.
Mr. Yeisley writes :
"My kidneys and liver were In bad
condition unci I was nnxious for relief.
I had tried many remedies without
success. I bought a bottle of 'Favor
ite Remedy,' which effectively proved
its merit. The best proof that it has
completely cured me is my recent ac
ceptance by four different life insur
ance companies."
Tho Rev. Mr. Yeisley Is tho pastor o
the First Reformed Church of St. Paris,
Ohio, and is as well tho editor of the St.
Paris Dispatch.
There is no question that Dr. David
Kennedy's Favorite Remedy is the best
and surest medicine In the world for dis
eases of the kidneys, Hver, bladder and
blood, rheumatism, dyspepslaand chronic
constipation, as well as tho weaknesses
peculiar to women. It quickly relieves
and cures inability to hold urine and tho
necessity of getting up a number of times
during the night and puts an end to that
scalding pain when passing urine.
