THE CITIZEN. rUBUSIIED ETEBT WEDNESDAY AXD r EI DAT BT THE CITIZEN FCMJSIIISO COMr AST. Enteredas second-class matter, at tbepost ofBoc. Honesdale. Pa. SUBSCRIPTION: tlM A teab. a advaxci: After Election Thoughts. Taft's plurality in Wayne county is 1,211; he receiving 3,018, and Bryan 2,437. C. C. Pratt's plurality in the Congres sional district is about 2,900. It was a Republican victory in Nation, State, and Congressional District, and in the county, our gains being two repre sentatives in county offices, District At torney and Sheriff, who succeed two re tiring Democrats. The old Hoard of Commissioners is re-elected, and it is a just recognition of the honest, faithful manner in which they conducted the office. Messrs. Hanlan's and Gammcll's elec tion was due to their personal popular ity, to which was added the strength that accrues to officials who use the oppor tunity of being officially polite and ac commodating in transacting their duties. Their opponents, Messrs. Barnes and Blake, should be proud of the votes given them, which was largely due to tl-e gentlemanly, courteous and vigorous canvass they made, and they will be re membered by those who voted for thein and by many who voted otherwise. Look not upon the past, It comes not back again. Improve the present, it is thine ; and Go forth to meet the future With a firm and manly heart. The table ehowing how the votes of the several States are exiected to be cast in the electoral college, which appear? on the first page of this edition is, ac cording to latest returns, correct, except in one particular. Colorado, marked "doubtful" in the table, but credited to Taft, should be in the Bryan column, thus giving the defeated Democratic can didate 174 electoral votes toOOO for Taft. Presidential Facts. The twenty-fifth Presidential election in the United States was held on Tues day last. On March 4th the twenty-seventh President will be sworn into office. Of the 27 Presidents, from Washing ton to Taft, nine were twice elected. All the Presidente from Washington to Jackson, with the exception of John Adams and John Quincy Adams, father and son, were elected twice. Four Presidents died while in office William II. Harrison, Abraham Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley. Three of these were from Ohio. Virginia furnished five sous to the Presidency, from which the expression "Dynasty of Virginia" came ; but New York leads with six ; Ohio furnishes four, Tennessee three and Pennsylvania one. Roosevelt was the youngest at the time of his inauguration, being 43 years of age ;. William II. Harrison the oldest, being 68 years of age. The Federalists were in power 12 years ; Jeffersonian Republicans, 24 years ; Democrats, since Lincoln's time, eight years. The average age at inauguration was 64, and the average age at time of death, 69 years. Forest Fire Fighting. Bills to be Paid Jan. I, 1909 No Fraudulent Claims Allowed. Owing to the prospect that the bills which will be rendered for fighting for est fires will far exceed any ever known, the State authorities are takinir nrecnn- tions to guard against the passage of any fraudulent bills by counties, and warn ings have been sent out by Auditor Gen eral Young and Forestry Commissioner Conklin. The fires this year have been of such great extent that the cost of ex tinguishing them bids fair to run beyond the $37,000 available for payment of the two-thirds, for which the Commonwealth under the law stands liable. The high est sum ever reached by fire bills in-previous years was $13,000. In his warning Auditor General Young notes that the appropriation is likely to prove insufficient, and that while the Legislature will doubtless care for any deficiency, it is desired to hold down the bills. He says in his letter to County Commissioners : "Both county and State are peculiarly liable to fraud in this matter, at the hands of unscrupulous persons. The number of hours per day for each war den or deputy should be kept within the bounds of probability. The warden should be carefully questioned with ref erence to the origin of the fire, its lo cation and extent, the number of per sons employed by him and the number of hours which each person worked. Care should be taken to eliminate claims or tlctitous persons physically incapable of performing the work. "It should also be borne in mind that no person or corporation has a right to compensation for extinguishing fires on his own property, and great care should be taken to inquire into all claims with this matter in view. "Bills are payable on January 1, and whatever money is available will be dis bursed pro rata on that date." WSTKICTS. Iterlln. No. 1 Ilerllii. No. 2 Itt'thunv ISuckimiham. No. 1 ISucklnsliam.

Lee Bramax. Honesdale, Xov. 4, 1908. Hints Worth Knowing. St 1 aw matting should always be wash ed with warm water and salt. Water alone wou d turn it yellow. The salt has a coui.ter.cting effect. Marl-in j Linen To make linen easier to write on when marking it, dip the piece to be marked in cold starch, and the pen will write without scratching. Laundry Hint When ironing, if the iion be firmly rubbed on a piece of glass or emery paper, and then slightly soaped, it will be found to glide beautifully over the article and leave no smudges. Tender Feet A capital recipe to relieve tender feet, eRiecially during hot weath er: One pint of bran, one ounce of bi carbonate of soda, and one gallon Of hot water. Bathe the feet in this mixture. Scenting the Hair Powdered orris root is the nicest thing with which to perfume the hair after washing. Dust the powder well into the hair when dry, and then brush lightly with a clean brush. Do not use too much force in polishing shoes. A gentle brushing with a soft brush is better than the vigorous work of the boot black. Xcvcr allow a thick crust of blacking on your shoes. Wash it off occasionally, and apply a little cas tor oil ; then polish over in an hour or two. Burn Vegetable Parings In this way one not only destroys refuse that might become very malodorous and unhealth ful, but one also saves one's coal bill. Dried potato parings are capital for kind ling a lire, and they may be dried in the, oven when the cooking' is done without making any unpleasant smell. An excellent paste for cleaning sauce pans, boards, sinks, tiles, discolored china, stone, paint, etc., can be made as follows: Take equal parts of whiting, soft soap, white sand and soda. Place the ingredients in a sauce pan, adding enough water to form a smooth paste. Boil until quite dissolved, and pour into jars for future use. Apply with a clean flannel wrung out of hot water, and after wards rinse with clear, warm water. Muslin blouses, if colored, require special attention, and instead of placing a daintily sprigged or spotted cotton fab ric to soak over night in tepid water, as may be done where white fabrics are concerned, the process of steeping the day's finer washing of this description should be curtailed as much as possible. Half an hour is the limit which should be placed on this part of the proceed ings, while a little salt may with advant age be added to the water. Bethany. Novemoer -1th. 3Irs. Henry N.
