Wilkce-Barro is the first city or
town In Pennsylvania to take advan
tags ot tho Shade Tree Commission law
passed by the last session ot tbe Liegia
lature and approved by Governor
Stuart May 31, 1907, the Mayor having
signed tbe concurrent resolution passed
by councils accepting the provisions ot
the act. In boroughs the appointment
ot threo commissioners to serve without
compensation, having exclusivo and
absolute custody and control ot shade
trees within tbe municipal limits, with
power to plant, set out, remove, main
tain and care for same, is vested in tbo
Chief Burgess. The terms of the first
appointoes ore for throe, tour and flvo
years respectively, and on tho expira
tion ot any term tbe new appointment
will bo tor Ave years. The commission
on decidiog upon setting out, removing
or materially changing shade trees in
any highway aro required to givo pub
lic notico of a meeting at which the
contemplated work is to be considered,
by publication in not to exceod two
newspapers published in tbo borough
tor two weeks boforo it Is held. Tho
cost of all work done is charged to tbe
owoer ot tbe premises in front of which
tho improvement is made, and becomes
a lien on tho real estate. Subsequently
to moot tbo expense ot caring for tho
trees, and the cost of tho odvertisine
mentioned, a general tax may bo levied
not to exceod one-tenth ot one milt on
tbe dollar ot tho osseofcod valuation of
the borough. It the- provisions ot tho
act are accepted by Honesdalo, tbe
Commission will have power to employ
and pay such superintendents, engin
eers, foresters, tree wardens, and other
assistants as the proper performance of
their duties may require, and to make
and publish regulations providing pen
alties for violations ot tbe act, subject
to the approval of tho town council; all
flnos and penalties imposed becoming
liens upon tbe real estate, and collect!-
bio as taxes upon real property aro now
collcclod. Honesdalo is already so
thoroughly shaded .that it is hardly
probable-that our town fathers will see
any necessity for availing themselves
of tbe privileges of the new act. Tbe
very fact, indeed, that tbo law bad boon
, tbo statute books for considerably
incro than a year boforo any muncipal-
ty accepted its provisions, goes to show
that it was not a crying necessity in
any part of tbe State.
Tbo threatened litigation among
claimants to certain rights in and about
lk Lako, and Tbe Lako Lodore Co.,
TCiot purcbaeera of tbo interests ot tbo
Drtl. and Hud. Co. in tbo property, re-
lis the litigation growiog out ot a
similar contention between Asa Dim-
ock and tbo canal company torty-foui
y jars ago. Tbe caaa was tried before
Invito Gcorgo R. Barrott, and was an
ion of ejectment by tbo former foi
l'.'S ucres of land in Clinton township.
I'hc plaintiff's claim was based on a
wh- rant from the land office ot Pennsy 1-
v.ti ia, dated September 12, 1851, and a
oi. tion and survey of tho tamo, the 30th
ot iho month, covering and including
Kik lako, and a patent for the tract
(rem tho Commonwealth to L. W.
Dmiock, father of Asa Dimock, May 8,
1856. The defence was based on a war-
i.nt to John Taggart, issued Fob 11th,
791, and returned Juno 27th, 1806, as
bui veyed on a tract ot land in Clinton
t'jvnebip, "surrounding Elk Pond,"
with tho pond laid down as vacant ; up
on which survey a patent was issued to
Samuel Salter June 17, 1807, describing
the land by tho extorior lines as contain
ing 258 acres, 63 perches. The title of this
P';t. ntco finally became vested in tbe D
& U. Canal Co., wbo entered into posses
sion ut tbe John Taggart tract, and tbe
uso of Elk Lako (then called "pond")
v.tuch covered part, nearly bait, of the
Dimock tract, tor fifteen years, as a
footer to their canal. Tbo survey ot
Jul nTnggart was a peculiar one. When
tho warrant was laid tbo outside lines
weio closed and would havo embraced
nbout COO acres, but in 1807 inside lines
weio marked upon the draft, running
par .llol to tho outer ones, tbo calcula
tion made only to the land lying be
tw(,:n them, and so roturned to tho
land offlco as surveyed upon tbe John
Tai art warrant. This left an oblong
pio:o ot laud in the confer, including
Elk lako, not only unappropriated, but
mai ked on tbe return "Elk Pond, va
cant," and it was upon this alleged va
cancy that tbe Dimock warrant was
laid, Upon this showing Judge Barrott
ruled in favor of the plaintiff, holding
among other points that tbo John Tag
gart tract was so located as to leave
var int land in tbe center of it in an ob
long shapo; that tbe owner ot that war
rant was bound by the official return;
thi:', tho company bad no right to oc
cupy tbo pond as a feeder to tboir
cai.al by virtuo ot their corporate
privileges, nor greater right than an in
dividual would havo wbo had acquired
the title to tbo John Taggart tract ot
land; that not only tho Elk pond, but
all ot the land excluded from tho John
Taggart survoy, was vacant when tho
warrant under which tho plaintiff claim.
od was survoyed ; and that bo was there
fore entitled to a verdict for so much as
wai vacant. Tho case was taken to tbe
Supremo Court by S. K. Dimmick and
F. M, Crane, attorneys for tho D, and
(I. 0. Co., Charles P. and George G
Wuller appearing for Mr. Dimock.

ia Honesdalo, it is a fact that thus far
no serious accidents have occurred, in
volving loss of lite or limb, hereabouts
On Monday last, however, Iho record
camo well-nigh being broken. Herbert
Smith, ot Wilkos-Barro, with it party
comprising his wifo end yoar-and a
half old son, and Misj Elvira Day, a
young lady whoso parents rcsido in
Cadosia, N. Y., was on his way from
Honesdalo up tho Dybcrry road toward
Kimble's, en routo for Hancock, X Y.
On reaching what is known as tho Big
Eddy on the Dy berry Creek, where a
sharp turn occurs in tbo road, witli a
high and precipitous bank on tho river
sido, tbo rear wheels of the auto skid
dod to the right, and in a moment tho
machine was upsido down over tho
odgo ot the declivity, being prevented
from absolutely crushing out tho lives
ot those beneath it only by the bushes
and stones into which it plunged and
which so entangled it as to prevent its
farther fall. That all wcro not killed
outright seems really providential, and
looking at the mishap in this light, tbo
roal injuries inflicted may well bo re
garded as trivial. Miss Day was tbo
most Beriouely hurt, two bones of her
right wrist being fractured. Tbo others,
with tho exception ot a few bruises on
tbe baby, oecaped practically unharm
ed. Even tho machine itself camo
through with but littlo damage, and af
ter receiving tho attentions ot machin
ist Charles Gibbs, was driven to town,
and bos einco been cavorting about our
streets. Fortunately for the party, Dr.
McConvill, who had been paying a pro
fessional visit farther up tbo Dyborry,
chanced to bo near tbo sccno of tho
mishap whon it occurred, and taking
Miss Day in his carriage, brought her
to Honesdalo, and gavo nocessary at
tention to her broken wrist. Accom
panied by Mrs. Smith, she was ablo to

BvDROPiiouia is in reality so rare and
to terrifying that ita symptoms and
treatment are littlo understood. Asa
matter ot fact, tho commonly acoepted
expression ot madness in a dog is often
misleading. Tbe real maa dog does not
sbun water, as it is said. Un tbe con
trary, mad dogs often rush, to tbe wa
ter and drink it eagerly, if they are abta
to swallow. Tho mad dog dots not tiMtt
at the mouth. It does not run amuck,
snapping at everything In its path.
What, than, aro tbo indications of tbo
mad dog I To those familiar with aglvin
dog tbe surest symptom and tbe ona
whicb should oxoite closest attention la
a distinot aud unaccountable change In
tbo dog's diiposition a staid dog be
coming exollabla and a frisky one dull.
That condition does not necessarily
mean rabies1, but It ia auspioioue, and If
in addition tbe dog haa trouble tit (wal
lowing as though it seemed to have a
bone in us tnrosi oewarai xnavaos
should be instantly tied up, because it
it bo rabies It takes knit a day or two
for ferocious instincts to develop. The
unmistakable evidence, however, ot a
dog with rabies la tbe stinky, whitish
saliva which covers tho teeth and shows
on the drawn lips. Tbe eyes glare and
are red) tbe dog hsa paroxyemeof run
ning fury, during which It barks hoarse
