The Katz Underwear Company are

business, the firm have been compelled
to enlarge their quarters. The new
structure will be 50 by 100 feet, and two

to Kreitner Brothers, and the new build
ing will be ready for occupancy about
'August 1st. This concern commenced
the manufacture of underwear in the
Dodge building on Main street, but" the
large demand for their product com
pelled them to erect a factory. At the
present time 175 people are employed,
but the force will be doubled when the
new factory is completed. The payroll
of the concern is now the second largest
of all of Honesdale's manufacturing in

will bo present. In the afternoon he
will give an address on "Incubation

Wolsifer is a breeder of high class poul

his text, and proves that "Biddy is one

We call your attention to the ad. of
the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance
Co. in this issue of The Citizen. It

merits of this large company before
placing their insurance. W. C. Knapp,
of Hawley, Pa., will be glad to call on
you and explain the merits of the new

Quicks' sawmills, in Mt. Pleasant town
ship, one mile east of Pleasant Mt. vil
lage were destroyed by fire. Nothing
could be done to check the llames and
the entire plant was consumed, involving
a loss of $5,000 with no insurance. Ow
ing to the high wind which prevailed at
the time of the fire other property in the
vicinity was endangered, but fortunately
the loss was confined to the mills.
The Easter displays iu our shop
windows arc unusually attractive this
season. The large establishments like
Menner & Co.'s and Katz Brothers, are
making most artistic and tempting dis
plays, while the millinery stores have a
genuine Parisian appearance. A fine
show of blooming potted plants and
flowers is made at Helferich's, and Miss
Carrie Smith's daintily decorated store
windows opposite the Lyric are attract'
ing much attention. The confectionery
and other stores dealing in Easter toys,
candies and cards are exhibiting a be
wildering variety of goods in that line.
The very high winds that prevailed
throughout the country on Wednesday at
ternoon and night, causing many deaths
and wide destruction of property, did
considerable damage in this county, the
details of which have not reached us up
to the hour of going to press. Among
other losses we hear of the blowing down
of a Megivern barn at White's Valley,
and the twisting out of shape of a wind;
