Joseph Yarns, aged 26, of Farno,
Clinton township, was, Inst Friday,
committed to tho county jail by Justice
of the Peace. Hobert A. Smith, of this
borough. Tbo prisoner, who w.n mar
ried flvo years ago, appears to have
mado an unsatisfactory choice in bis
selection of a wifo, and about four years
ago tbo pair aspirated. Eveotually th;
young man returned to the noma of bis
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jam 33 W. Yarns,
who livo on "The Island" in While Oik

family, m has basa ehiwiog signs of a

clutches, toro tbe poor beast asunder.
Tho next day, it is alleged, he told bis
mother that in his opinion it was time
for bis father to dio also, and that he
ought to ba treated similarly to the cat
The elder Mr. Yarns then sought tbo
alvicoc f Dr. II. C Noble, of Wnymart,
.and o tills eugeoslhn the young man
was brought tn lionnsdale on Friday,
with a viow to tbs oxecution of tbe pa
pers necessary to securo bis admission
to an iusano asylum. lie was taken
beforo tbe justice, but some question
arising as to tbe legal courso of proced
ure io such caeoa, no formal complaint
was made; but, on tbe personal state
ments of tho parties interested, he was
sent to tbo county jail for restraint and
safe keeping. On Monday morning Dr.
Nobloand poormaster V. W. Hopkins,
with the father of tho young man, came
to Uoneedalo expecting to secure his
immediate release and removal to an in
Sino hospital on tho certificates of two
physicians and tbe concurrence of tbe
Clinton township poor board. Thetr
application was denied, howevor, the
eberifl being instructed by counsel that
nothing further could bo done until tbe
roiuru w iuwq ui juogo t'uray, ana toe
action of a committeo tie lunatico in
quirendo appointed by bim. This view
is vigorously contested by Dr. Noble
and others interested in the case, who
contend that tho young man, not being
charged with any criminal offense, can
not lawfully bo confined in the county
jail merely because of a disordered mind,
Ififcul should bo sent to an institution
where he, can ba properly treated.

amounting to 22,U7U and found but
12,347 remaining in tho iW.OOO fund.

Mrs. Margaret (Murray) Leonard,
widow o! Micbaet L-ooard. who met his
death four years ago by falling from a
load of hay, ended her life on Wednes
day morning of last week, August 12th,
by swallowing two ounces of carbolic
acid, at ber home in Canaan township,
n short distance from the outlet of Lake
Lodoro. Mrs. Leonard retired at her
usual hour on Tuesday evening, but in
a very despondent mood. In the early
hours of the day she had eoemcd more
than ordinarily bright and hopeful, but
in the afternoon became depressed, and
told other members of tbe household
that she "could not live longer." Aa.
as had often declared that ber life was
not worth living no particular woight
was given to ber words on this occasion
but when ber daughter Mary arose in
the morning, Mrs. Leonard was found
lying dead on a couch in the sitting

for nutting an end to ber life. The

cuned on Monday, August 13, 1883
Owiag to heavy rains a landslide baa
taken place, covering tbe track with
aarth and rocks. Train 64, an east-
oou-id freight, ran into the mass, the
engine being thrown over on to the
ves -bound track and four cars being
wrecked. No. 3, the west-bound express,
was nearly due at that point and a brake-
man of tbe wrecked train took a lantern
and tried to signal the flyer, but was too
late. No. 30 engine ran into the loco
motive of No. 84, and then rolled down
the eighty feet embankment to tbe
river's edgo, followed by a stock car,

oelooging to Fred. Qebbardt and Mrs.
Lanlry, "tho Jersey Lily," a baggage
car, mail car, smoker ana one day
coach. Five passenger cars, including
thtea Pullmans, remained on the track.
The cars which went down tbe bank
took Ore, and the passengers were res
cued with great difficulty, about forty
being injured. John Kiosilla, engineer
of No. 3, was scalded about tbe face,
and Alexander Newman was killed.
Nine trainmen and other employees on
No.-3 were injured. Of the crew of No.
S4, Engineer M. F. Fritz, who now lives
io Uonosdale, and runs trains 30 and

was injured about tbo bead and face;

and conductor Long's back was injured.
All of tho horses, estimated to bo wortb

of tho most seriously iojurod among the
passengers and trainmen were taken
over tbo river to Barryville for treat

Tho Shoemakers' outing on Tuesday
last was the complete success which the
parade and open air band concert of
Monday evening foreshadowed. Tbe
weather was charming throughout tbe
entire day, and notwithstanding the
immense crowds attending the excur
ion to Lake Lodoro and participating
in tbe various enjoyments of that pop
ular resort, not a mishap occurred to
mar the pleasure of a single Individual.
Thanks to the copious shower of a few
days previous, tbe interdiction as to the
use of fireworks during tbe parado was
removod, and the ehowy turnout of
onioo members, enlivened by the fine
music of tbe Hooesdale band and Maple
City dram corpe, was made brilliant by
tbe constant blaze of red light and an
incessant discbarge ot roman candle.
The concert in Union Depot Park, after
the parade, attracted one of tbe largest
open air crowds ever men in Hooesdale,
and tbe immense audience testified to
their appreciation of the fine music by
abundant applause. Tbe band, under
the baton of Conductor Wagner, never
played better, and tbe vocal trio, Messrs
Jones, Jenkins and Bodie, rendered
several selections most acceptably. The
excursion train oa Tuesday took many
hundreds ot our townspeople to Lake
Lodoro, and the crowd there was large
ly augmented by parties from Carbon-
dale and farther down tbe valley. On
tho grounds there were abundant di
versions to suit every taste, from s
Janes in tbo grand pavilion to a barge
ride on the beautiful lake, and choice
refreshment, prepared by tbo Ladies'
Label League, were supplied in ample
quantities. Tbe last excursion train.
