The Literary Contest to be held in
the Lyric, Thursday evening, April 1st,
is the first of its kind ever held in Hones
dale. The local teachers are endeavor
ing to make the English work second to
none in importance, and much interest
ia aroused in the work because of this
contest. In addition to those whose
names have been previously announced,
the following have been chosen to deliver
essays on "Pennsylvania in Art" Abi
gail Baird, Faith Clark and Grace Han
Ian. While the judges are preparing
their decision, about forty pupils, under
the direction of Miss Amy E. Clark, the
musical director of the school, will give
a humorous operetta, entitled "The Ma
gician." Through the consolidating of the
business of a number of well known
wholesale milk dealers a new organiza
tion han just been formed which will be
a large factor in the milk market in the
future, handling as it will over forty
thousand quarts of milk each day and
controlling at least twelve creameries in
the best milk producing sections in the
country, among them being the Preston
Park creamery of thii county. The new
concern has been named The Castieton

That the cost of the road building in j
northeastern Pennsylvania has been car
ried on in the last year along economical
lines is shown br the report of District
Engineer Arthur W. Long of the state
highway department. In the counties
of Lackawanna, Su8quehanna,Wyomlng,
Wayne, Pike and Monroe twelve miles
of highway were built in 1908, costing
on an average. $1.43 per running foot
or $7,500 a mile. The total cost of the
twelve miles, including the construction
of the road itself, engineering, thebuild
ing of bridges and inspection amounted
to $98,830,99, the road building being
$80,718.33 of the whole. The highways
considered were as follows: Mt. Pleasant,
one mile; Lehigh township, seven and
one-quarter miles: Seelyville road, one
mile; Glenburn, two miles ; Dyberry
Bethany road, three-fourths of a mile.
the low cost of the roads and the ab
sence of extras were due to Mr. Long's
careful estimating, the extras for 1908
amounting to only $271.11. The Lehigh
township road cost the least of any, the
price per running foot being $1.21. The
highest priced was the Seelyville road,
costing $2.08 a foot.
Monday and Wednesday nights of
next week, the following vaudeville acts
will take place on the stage of the Lyric:
Lawrence Sisters, Comedy Singing and
Dancing; Harry Mantel, Monologist;
Nelusco, Comedy Magician, New Motion
Pictures and Illustrated Songs. In place
of gmng the people a cheaper show at
lower prices the management will con
tinue to offer a big hour and a half per
formance at 10 cents for balcony and 20
cents tor main floor seats. Two per
formances will be given on the evenings
of the above dates, at 7.30 and 9.00 o
clock. For the latter part of the week
an entirely different program will be
billed. See advertisement later.
Charles S. Penwarden, Secretary of
the Wayne County Pennsylvania Society
of New York City, writes us that the an

May 11th, at 8 P. M., at the Hotel Man

second street, New York city, for the
purpose of electing officers for the en
suing year, and one director for a term
of three years, receiving and acting upon
the reports of the officers and commit
tees, and for the transaction of such
other business as may properly come
before the meeting. The following named
gentlemen have been regularly and duly
appointed as members of the Nominat
ing Committee: John II. Strongman.
Geo. R. Valentine, Dr. Peter J. Gibbons,
Francis A. Dituock, and William W.
Starbuck. Owing to the vast amount of
very important business to be transacted,
and the many interesting matters to be
considered at this meeting, there should
be a .large attendance; and it is expected
that each and every member of the as
sociation will make a special effort to
Tho Carbondale correspondent of
the Scranton Republican says: "The
annual literary contest between the Car
bondale, Honesdale and Dunmore High
schools which is to be held in Dunmore
on Friday evening, April 10th, has arous
ed intense interest among the local high
school students and the coming event
promises to be of great interest and over
which keen rivalry will be manifested
among the different contestants and
their followers. Preliminaries have been
held in which the local students have
done remarkably well and will no doubt
bring honors to this city when the judges
of the contest render their decision. The
interest in Honesdale and Dunmore is
equally as vivid as it is in this city, and
in both places preliminary contests are
being held. The Carbondale High school
will be represented by Raymond Bella
my in the declamation, "Webster's Re
ply to Hayne ;" Miss Jane Brink in the
recitation "The Baron's Last Banquet,"
and Miss Loretto McDonough in the es
say, "Pennsylvania in Art." The alter
nates are Miss Blanche Kerins and Rex
ford Moon. The local students are pre
paring their colors and school yells and
a large delegation from this city will at
tend the contest."

Three reels of movinc pictures are ex

commendable features of the theatre is

recalled that the late Hon. P. P. Smith
made herculean efforts to get through
the bill establishing the Middle district

Grover Cleveland. The house of repre

Smith easily secured the passage of the
hill through the houte and had the
promise of an appointment as judge
from President Cleveland, witli whom
he stood in high favor. But the judge
struck a snag in the senate. Senator
Quay, though he had great respect for
Judge Smith was too much of a partisan
to let the bill go through which would
give a life appointment for judge to a
Democrat, when by waiting a little the
appointing power might be in the hands
of a Republican. So, the bill die! in
the senate. This is a part of the struggle
of Judge Smith to get on the bench
which was never written before.

What When and How to Feed
Practical Hints fro a an Experienc
ed Poultry falser.
What is the best feed" continued from
March 19th: After we begin to get hard
frosts in the autumn, few people who
keep poultry ever rcalirc that it is nec
essary to begin to feed green food. Be
gin early to feed cabbage or steamed
clover. Fowls taken off the range and
denied green food will stop laying with'
in a few days, no matter what other
food they get. Steamed clover leaves
gathered where the hay is thrown down
for stock, is as good a green food in cold
weather as one can give. It should be
fed nearly every day all winter. If you
do not have this, use cut or shredded
clover. Fill a vessel with it in the even
ing, mix just a little corn meal with it
then pour boiling waterover it till cover
ed, then cover the vessel till morning,
letting itstand where it will not get cold
Acxt morning drain off the water and
heat it to make your morning mash
About noon feed the clover. It is sur
prising how the fowls will eat it, and
how it helps to make eggs. On nice
days when it is not cold enough to freeze
have heads of cabbage just high enough
so tne nens will have to jump up to get
at them, but do not rely on green food
for part of your ration. It is to be fed
as an auxiliary. It is not concentrated
enough, ana does not contain enough
carbon to form the bulk of feed in cold
Remember that any sudden change in
feed will stop the egg supply for a time.
no matter how good the substitute.
Make all changes gradually. Do not let
the hens get too fat. It is not true, as
some writers claim, that a very fat hen
never lays any eggs, but more will lay
well when not too fat. Mv experience
teaches that a hen must be tolerably fat
in cola weather to lay well. Did you
ever wonder why the large breeds are
naturally better winter layers than the
small breeds ? I think it is because they
are more liable to lay on fat and are
thus better enabled to withstand the
cold. Old hens sometimes get overfat
ana do not lay well, but this is rarely
mu case witn nens not more than a year
or two old. The writer will give the re
cord of thirty-five hens for the month of
March on April 2d. Friday's issue.
These hens are under his own per
sonal care, and if any one wishes to ex
change notes cither through the columns
of this paper or Box 5, White Mills, Pa.
they will receive the writer's careful at
tention. JosEm Stephen's.
