THE FARVIEW HOSPITAL.
The First Shovelful of Earth
Thrown Out on Saturdny.
On Friday last architect Sliiik and con
tractor Glenn, of Philadelphia, arrived
in Carbondale, and with Dr. T. C. Fitz
siminoiH, visited Farview, and after in
specting the site, made everything ready
for beginning the work of laying the
foundationn of the mammoth structure.
On Saturday the first shovelful of earth
was thrown out by contractor Glen, who
will superintend the erection of the build-
No ceremonies were arranged for the
event, but several of the Stateofficers in
terested in the project were present, in
cluding architect J. C. M. Shirk, who
drew the plans for the several buildings,
and the following members of the hos
pital commission : Former Speaker II. F.
Walton, president of the commission;
Senator William Sproudel, of Delaware ;
James Milcspeller, of Allentown ; former
Congressman Charles Mullen, of Mount
Holly, Hon. C. Fred. Wright, of Su
quehanna, and Senator Sterling C'atlin,
of Luzerne county.
During the year 1005 a bill was intro
duced in the State Legislature appro
priating $100,000 for the purchase of a
site and erecting suitable buildings in
which to keep the State's criminal in
sane. Although there was some oppo
Sition to the measure, it went through
with a large majority, and a commission
was named to select and purchase a site
and get plans and specifications for the
erection of the buildincs. A number of
sites were inspected by the commission,
but they finally decided on the Farview
site as the most desirable, taking every
thing into consideration, and the plot of
ground was secured.
It was expected to begin operations
earlier in the year, but unavoidable de
lays prevented this, and now with every
obstacle removed the work will be push
ed rapidly. As soon as the foundation
walls are laid a large torceof mechanics
will be employed, and it is expected that,
where possible, local workmen will be
With the completion of the Farview
hospital accommodation for many hun
dreds of the criminal insane will be had,
and those now confined in other institu
tions such as the regular insane asylums,
state prisons and municipal institutions,
will be sent to Farview. '
The site on which the hospital build
ings will be erected was conveyed to the
State by the Delaware & Hudson liail
road Company for a nominal sum. It
comprises about 000 acres and includes a
never failing spring of water, se.veral
acres of valuable farm land and a large
tract of picturesque mountain land.
Proposed Changes In Fish Laws.
Important changes in the tish laws of
Pennsylvania are provided in two bills
adopted by the conference of representa
tives of the fish protective association of
thirty-one counties, which concluded its
work in Harrisburg on Friday last. The
bills will be submitted to the Legislature.
It is proposed to permit violators of
fish laws to appeal to court, and also do
away with the division of fines among
wardens and informers, and turn all the
money into the State Treasury. Carp
are added to the list of food fish.
Among the important changes are
these : That the Commissioner of Fish
eries be allowed to appoint thirty war
dens, at $73 each, instead of twelve, as
at present, and a number of special war
dens; allowing the Commissioner of Fish
eries to close trout streams on petition of
200 citizens : making possession of fish
or illegal nets .prima facie evidence of
guilt ; authorizing the setting aside of
small streams for nursery purposes ; pro
hibiting, under penalty of $100 fine, sale
or offering for salo of illegal fishing de
vices; allowing two rods, two hand lines
or two of each to each fishermen ; re
ducing the number of trout that can be
caught in a day to twenty-five; changing
bass season from July 1 to December 1.

HIGH LAKE TRAGEJY.
Fatal Accident and Suicide.
Father and Son Burled In the Same
Grave In Dybcrry.
Sanger Mclleynolds, 20 years of age,
died at Brownsville, Buckingham town
ship, this county, on Wednesday of last
week, as the result of an accident which
hefel him while hunting on the previous
Fridav. While walking on a log through
the woods, the bark slipped, and he fell,
striking his hack on a stub. He was
painfully injured, but managed to reach
ionic, where ordinary treatment seemed
to afford much relief, and by Sunday
evening, while a young lady of the
household was entertaining the family
with some violin music, he arose and
danced about the room with great ap
parent enjoyment. On Monday and
Tuesday the case took a bad turn, and
by Wednesday became alarming. Dr.
G. C. Merriman, of Lake Como, was
summoned by phone, but despite all ef
forts to save him the young man died
at fi o'clock in the evening.
Daniel Mclleynolds, father of the un
fortunate young man, married Jennie,
a daughter of Abial S. Brown, of Leb
anon, and buying the farm of Francis
Gilchrist, at. Brownsville, now High
Lake post ofiiee, located there and rear
ed his family of six children. In mak
nig his purchase he obtained a loan of
his father-in-law, securing it by a mort
gage on the property. In course of
time James Williams married McHey-
nold's oldest daughter, and the latter
thinking to better himself at Forest City,
removed to that place, leaving his own
farm and stock in charge of bis son-in-
law, on a lease. About two years ago,
Mclleynolds, disappointed at Forest
City, returned with his family to this
county, and found temporary employ
ment with his father-in-law, Mr. Brown.
This arrangement lasted till some time
in the early fall, when the McReynolds
family returned to the IlighLake home
stead, and its head, with the oldest boy,
went farther west toengnge in hop pick
ing. This proved to be a profitless
venture, and father and son came back
to High Lake in worse financial plight
than when they started. Then followed
the unfortunate accident, and sad
death of Sanger, as already related.
Friday last was fixed as the day for
the voting man's funeral, and as the in
terment was to be in the Pulis burying
ground, in Dyberry, several miles from
the Mclteynolds farm, nine o'clock was
designated as the hour for the services
Shortly after breakfast-time relatives be
gait gathering lrotn distant homes,
among them Samuel Wilmarth, an uncle
of .the dead boy, with his wife, son, and
daughter. Mrs. Wilmarth and daughter
aligited, and entering the house were
greeted kindly by Mr. McReynolds, who
then f illowed his brother-in-law and
son to the stable where they were about
to put out their team. He was evident'
lv in much distress, but gave them a
pleasant greeting, and returned with
them to the house.
The Williams, Mclleynolds and Wil
marth families, with a sister, Mrs. Wal
ton, of Buffalo, having gathered in the
breakfast room, Mr. Mclleynolds was
seen by his brother-in-law, Mr. Wil
marth, who was the only one of the
group paying any particular attention to
his movements, to take from a shelf a
half-pint bottle, about half-filled with a
white liquid, which Mr. Wilmarth sup
posed to he some sort of a stimulant
lie then, turning his back to his visitor
opened a paper and read it, after whicl
he raised the bottle to his lips and
swallowed its contents. A cup partially
filled with coffee was standing on the
table, and this he immediately drained
after which he rushed out of the house
and ran toward the barn, located per
haps two hundred feet distant, on rising
ground, lie was followed by Mr. Wil
marth and son, who, on Hearing him
questioned him as to what he had done
but he made no reply, and on reaching
the barn, for which his strength barely
held out, he threw himself or fell on the
tloor, evidently in mortal agony. Whe
he drank the coffee be threw the cup to
ward the table, knocking over a castor
which attracted the attention of the
others in the room, and word coming in
of his condition, Dr. Merriman was
again summoned from Lake Como by
phone. He responded immediately nnd
reached Brownsville while Mr. Mcltey
nolds was Mill breathing, but too late t
be of any service, as the unfortunate
man died just fifty-five minutes after
swallowing the fatal dose. The paper
he read just beforo his rash act was an
official notice from Sheriff Iloadkuight
sent at the instance of a creditor, and
the contents df the bottle proved to be
Mr. Mclleynolds was 47 years of age
and, besides his wife, is survived by
two sons, Jacob and Daniel, and three
daughters, Elsie, Clara and Bessie. The
funeral of Sanger was postponed until
Saturday, when father and son were
laid to rest in the samo grave, in the
Married, in Hawley, Oct. 25, 1008, by
the Ilev. B. P. llipley, pastor of the M
E, church, Miss Jennie C. Arnold, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Bobert Arnold,

beautiful and useful remembrances. Up
on their return from their wedding trip
they are to make their home with the

The above is an illustration

and is claimed by the builders
newspaper and job work. It is
popular Hat bed presses, nnd is capable of not only doing the best
of newspaper work, but of turning out fine jobs in two, three or
more colors. The distribution, for many varieties of printing is
fully equal to that of two revolution presses. The press coming
absolutely new from the factory, and being used for this edition
as its first service, it cannot be expected that we are doiug it, or
it is doing itself, the fullest justice

Amos Knapp, of Norwich, N. Y., and
Miss Kt'tel C. Marks, of Galilee, Wayne
county, Pa., were united in marriage,
at the M. E. parsonage, Hancock, on
Wednesday last, by Kev. O. A. Mar
chant. John B. Golden, of Scranton, and
Miss Margaret Moylan, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. C. E. Moylan, of Fermoy,
were married in the former city, Oct.
20, 1908. The bride was attended by
her sister, Miss Julia Moylan, and the
groom by his brother, Paul Golden.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Golden hold impor
tant positions in the offices of the Scran
ton Railway Company. Their perma
nent home will be G01 North Hyde Park
The wedding of Miss liina Jacobs, of
Scranton to Edward Lowenstein, of
Wilkes-Barre, was celebrated Wednes
day" evening last at the residence of Mr,
and Mrs. Isadore Roos, the latter being
a sister of the bride. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. A. N. Anspach
er, of the Madison Avenue temple, and
was witnessed by a large party of
friends. Daniel Jacobs, a brother, gave
the bride away, and the bridesmaid was
Miss Freda Lowenstein, of New York,
a sister of the bridegroom. Nathan Ja

Sterling Jubilee Singers.
No attraction is so sure to draw a good
crowd and please everybody as a first
class jubilee company. The Sterling
Jubilee Company have proven them
selves to be the most popular organiza
tion of the kind that has been offered
on any concert course. In addition to
their regular program, they will intro
duce their new plantation melodies with
banjo, guitar, and mandolin accompani
ments, dividing their program into two
parts the first representing the negro
in the old plantation days in the south,
the second., the negro after coming
north. This will certainly prove a very
attractive feature of their program. At
the Lyric Theatre on Tuesday evening,
Nov. 2d. Henry Hogencamp is cast
ing his optics around for a suitable resi
dence for the winter months, as he
thinks there is no show for getting into
the new house now under way on the
farm he now occupies.
Thomas Arthur has given up the
butcher business and, with Richard
Clift, has gone into the lumber woods.
It will be a wonder if the borough of
Waymart doesn't have some damages
to pay in the near future, as they have
a large force of men and teams drawing
and tilling in the road with rocks and
stone between the Hubbard & McMullen
stock farm and Waymart. At the pre
sent time there is a stretch of about one
half mile of stone androck, without any
covering. Just drive over toward Way
mart with a heavy load, and if the su-
Eervisor don't get a blessing it will bo
ecause you are too much out of breath
to give it to him.

And now we have plenty of water
it may be interesting to the sporting
fraternity to know something of the
haul of big game made in this vicinity
m the last ten days.
Hobert .Boyce, John liazelton and
Edgar Cross started trapping for bear
on the tract lying between the Nortl
and South turnpike and Gouldsboro
about two weeks ago. About ten days
ago, Mr. Boyce caught the first bear, a
cub weighing about 70 pounds. The
following day Hazelton and Cross
caught another bear that weighed about
100 pounds. On Tuesday morning of
last week Boyce had another bear cub
in his trap and the other two trappers,
Hazelton and Cross, had a cub in one
trap and a two hundred pdttnd bear in
another. A day or so later Boyce trap
ped another larger cub and Hazelton
shot another large bear, weighing two
hundred pounds, making seven bears
killed within a circle of less than two
Mr. Boyce sold one of the cubs to F.
D. Waltz and with the meat of the
others he has been treating his friends
and neighbors to bear steak. Messrs.
Hazelton and Cross sold one cub to
Wm. Hughes, of Scranton, the large
cub to a man in Easton and one big
bear to a man in Nazareth. The large
bear that was shot will probably be sent
Mr. Hazelton's dog has treed eleven
raccoons this fall and they were all kill
ed. One caught last Friday night weigh
ed a trifle over 15 pounds. After killing
all this big game there is some chance
for small game to grow.
