A bill has been introduced in the
House at Harrisburg, providing that
after Juno 1, 1909, 2,240 pounds shall
constitute a legal ton of coal, and making
lit a misdemeanor to sell less than that
weight to a ton, or in that proportion in
quantities less than a ton. This law, if
passed, would have no effect on Hones-
Idale sales. Coal is never sold hero at
(retail by the ton, but by the pound. An
order for a ton is always filled at 2,000
Ipounds, as the purchaser will find on
Iconsulting his bill. The same rule ap
Iplies to smaller quantities. So the $200
I fine and one year imprisonment provided
I in the act for its violation would have no
I terrors for local dealers.
-A bill was introduced by IJepresenta
Itive Fuerth, in the lower house, onTues
day evening last, appropriating $10,000
I for the construction of a hospital in
I llonesdale. At the last session, the sum
I of $5,000 was appropriated for the same
purpose, but the money has, never been
I withdrawn from the state treasury. The
Fuerth bill provides thatinasmuch as the
$5,000 will revert to the state on June 1,
this year, the state shall appropriate
$10,000 for the same purpose. In re
ality the sum asked for is $5,000. The
I bill further provides that no part of the
appropriation shall be drawn from the
ctate until the Wayne County Hospital
association shall first raise a sum equal
to that provided for in the bill.
An appropriation of $5,000 has been
asked of the Legislature for a dike in
the Delaware river at Lacka waxen; $30,-
000 for experiments with shale in Pike
county, and $20,000 for a dike at Mata

At a special meeting of Alert Firo
Co., of East llonesdale, on Tuesday
evening, March 16th, a relief association
was organized, with the following tem
porary officers : R. W. Pen warden,
president ; Ed. F. Short, vice president;
Itay J. Brown, secretary ; Henry Rhode,
treasurer. A meeting of the association
will be held on Tuesday evening next,
at which time every member of Alert
Co. is requested to be present for the
purpose of making arrangements for an
entertainment to be given on Easter
Wednesday evening, April 14th, 1909.
Next Monday will begin the second
half of the Lenten Season, and the eyes
of young people especially will bo turn
ed toward the brightness of the Easter,
rather than retrospectively at the peni-
titential days of the fast. But it must
not be forgotten that Lent means more
than the annual period of repentance
for sins. It means a breathing spell in
festivities, a season of repair to clothes
and body and nerves and a time for
thought on matters that are crowded
out of mind during the other days of the
year. There are but two churches which
prescribe a season of repentance, but
all churches celebrate the close of it, for
Easter Sunday marks the beginning of
spring, tne olucial beginning, it you
please. Strictly speaking, repentance
should not be hoarded np for Lent
forty days of good deeds will not atone
foi more than 303 days of wickedness.
But since the poor receive a little con'
Bideration on those days, and Lent is
supposed to stimulate simplicity and
good sense, nobody 'believes it is a super
fluous custom even after the question of
religion htis been disposed of. S ome-
thing is needed to call a halt on late
hours, over-feeding and too much ex
citement. We do not take our pleasures
in moderation, sandwiching them in so
that hours of rest are not seriously dis
turbed. Wo do not alternate periods of
excitement with intervals of relaxation
if we did there would be no necessity
for long rests and a complete change of

detail in an advertisement in another

are offered, and doubtless the salo will
attract a large crowd of buyers.

as yet been definitely selected. The
Cornwall and Lebanon railroad, which
runs its track along the edge of the en
campment site, has made a generous
offer to the state this summer and the
offer has been regarded as so un
usually liberal that the First Brigade will
also probably go there for its annual en
campment. It has" not been decided as
to whether the two brig ades shall en
camp the same week at Gretna, or
whether the First Brigade shall take up
the site the week following the encamp
ment of the Third Brigade.

Farview, narrowly escaped serious in
jury on Wednesday afternoon. He was
returning home from Carbondale, and
was driving across the D. & II. tracks,
at No. 11, below the Farview depot, just
as the afternoon train, which arrives in
llonesdale at 4:10, left the station. En
gineer Yandermark saw the old man's
peril and blew the whistle, to which
warning Fitzsimmons seemed to pay no
attention. The engine crashed into and
made kindling wood of the wagon ; the
horse was whirled to one side, and the
driver thrown in the air, landing on the
pilot of the engine when he came down,
where, after a search under the train
for his mangled remains, be was found,
suffering, apparently, from only a Blight

THE MISSING LINK
A Valuable Hint to Wayne
County Fruit Growers.
APPLES THAT WILL KEEP A YEAR.
Nor liP!istem-Tle.r Farmers aro
Given Some Valuable Practl
cal Advice in the Matter of
B. M. Stone writes The Citizen, un
der date of March 15, 1909, from Stall,
A few years ago while attending
Fnirs and Farmers' Institutes, hero in
Northeastern Pennsylvania, I tried to get
the farmers interested in raising long
keeping apples for profit. Many of them
wanted me to experiment and report
later. Herewith I send you my report,
and the only way to get it before the
farmer is by tho press in tho territory ;
hence I am asking you to lay it before
your readers. If tho farmers will look
after the matter they will be much bet
ter off in the not very distant future :
To tho farmers of Luzerne, Lacka
wanna, Susquehanna, ouuivan, Wayne
and Wyoming counties :
'Six or seven years ago I tried to get
tho farmers of these counties interested
in the Missing Link apple, on account
of its long-keeping qualities, as it would
keep twelve months in an ordinary cel
lar, and was both a good eating and
cooking apple. But very few became
interested, and those on a very small
scale. But they said, "You try it. You
experiment and we will see how it comes
out." Well, gentlemen, I have experi-
manted with it, and find it all right.
The quality is good, and the keeping
qualities cannot be surpassed by any
apple known. They bear every year and
hang on the trees. My trees commenced
to bear the next year after planting, and
have borne every year since. I have
had fresh apples in my cellar every day
for the past six years, and some times
two crops at a time. The fourth year
from planting I had four bushels and
sold them for three dollars per bushel
That year we had a heavy wind storm
on September 30th and October 1st
which blew all my apples to the ground
except the Missing Link and Ben Davis.
The leaves were blown off the Missing
Link trees, but not an apple was found
on the ground after the storm. That
year apples were a drug in Wilkes-Barre
and Scranton markets in the fall, in
many cases not paying the expenses. I
shipped eleven barrels of apples to a
wholesale, houso in Wilkes-Barre, and
after two'months received a check for
$2.50 not as much money as one bush
el of the Missing Link brought. The
cext spring, apples brought from $1 to
$1.50 per bushel in the same markets.
It is the apple that keeps through the
winter that brings the price.
'In 1907 I had twenty-five bushels of
Missing Links. I sold them f. o. b. here
at one dollar and fifty cents per bushel,
all but the culls. These I kept, and
when any person called at my house I
gave him a cull Missing Link of 1907
crop, with a request that ho sample it
now, and every person who sampled
them said they were good. The last one
I had I gave to two gentlemen on Sept.
15, 1908, with the same request. They
said they were a right good apple.
My other varieties of apples Bold that
year on December 1st for fifty cents per
bushel at the cellar. My crop of Missing
Link apples for 1908 was forty-eight
bushels. Tho dry weather caused all
apples to drop from the trees two weeks
before the time to pick them. My apples
were all off the trees before Oct. 1st.
The Missing Links hung to the tree and
were picked Oct. loth. The apple buyers
were offering from fifteen cents to thirty
cents per bushel for apples ; sixty cents
per one hundred pounds, delivered to
the car, which is about twenty-seven
cents per bushel for hand-picked apples.
My Missing Link apples I put in my
cellar, and am holding them for the
May and June market of 1909. Tho year
before I planted the Missing Link I
planted other long-keeping varieties that
are not bearing yet. The Missing Link
apple trees have produced apples enough
to pay for the trees before the other trees
have commenced to bear. The Ben Da
vis, the tlano, the Stark, tho Rowels
Jenett are all long-keeping apples, that
will keep until spring. The Rowels
Jenett is a good apple and a good bear
er. It keeps until June, but is very
small, which is against it.
'Thero is no doubt that any of you
farmers who have apples that will keep
until April or May will bo able to get
from one dollar to one dollar and fifty
cents per bushel for them at that time.
You farmers have a homo market in the
Lackawanna and Wyoming valleys, with
a half a million consumers who aro not
producers, that would take all tho
apples you can raiso on your farms, if
tho delivery of them were spread out
over the whole twelve months in tho
year, instead of being forced upon them
in largo quantities in the fall. Hucksters
commence scouring tho couutry for ap
ples the last of July, and continuo as
long as they can find an applo. The
only reason that you are not visited every
day in the year by these men is that you
have not planted and rained long-keeping
apples. 'Most farmers have moro sum
mer and fall apples than tbey can dis
pose of at a fair price, but have no ap
ples' to put on the market in April and
May. There Bhould bo a chango here.
Plant more long-keeping apples, aod be
prepared to furnish your customers with
fresh apples every day in the year, the
same as you do with your other produce.
Tho sooner you plant them, the sooner
yon will reap the harvest.
B. M. Stone.'"
March 15th. In continuation of my
communication on March 5th, on poul
try raising, in which I stated that no
grain was a proper exclusive food, let
me tell you what I have found to bo the
cheapest and best way to feed for eggs
in winter. Each morning, feed a mash
composed of four parts bran, two parts
middlings, and six parts cornmeal, with
the proper amountof meat-meal or beef
scrap, (llie8e prepared meats aro sent
out with directions). Mix by taking
enough boiling water to make the re
quired amount ; add a teaspoonful of
salt for each thirty hens; then stir in the
bran first, afterwards the shorts and
meal. Let it stand till cool enough to
feed. Feed warm as the hens can eat it
without burning. Give about two-thirds
as much as the hens would eat if they
could get it ; which you can ascertain
by giving them one morning as much as
they will eat without leaving the feed
trough. Test them for amount, a few
mornings after beginning this feed. The
idea is to have them somewhat hungry
after eating the mash. Now scatter
wheat in litter for them lo scratch out,
just enoughof wheat to keep them hunt
ing. At noon put a little more wheat
in the litter, and thus keep them at
work all day. But be sure that your
hens do not get very hungry at anytime;
it pays to feed liberally. Then just be
fore they are ready to go to roost, feed
whole corn on a clean, dry place, all
they will eat. Warm this corn well on
cold evenings. Cut green bone is a good
feed, but not indispensible. It is queer
that nearly all the great results of feed-
'ng green bone are told by men who are
interested in the sale of bone cutters. I
found several brands of prepared meat
meal just as good and much cheaper,
cost and labor both considered. The
"cracklings" left after pressing out lard
aro the best meat-food I ever used in
cold weather. They are a great stimu
lant to egg production. Cut them fine
and feed warm noon or evening. Fowls
need some kind of animal food every
day to do their best. They are half
carnivorous by nature and it pays well
to pander to their natural desires. Green
food is more essential than any other
onn kind. It is needed more in the early
autumn than most poultrymen suppose,
even when fowls are still on the range,
after hard frosts".

sulting them. In order to stimulate
suggestion on this point The Citizen

winning essays with the names of the
authors will appear in the first number
