An attempt was made by a trio

Scranton, on Tuesday night last. A

The Easter number of St.
Mark's Dial, a parish paper devoted
to the Interests of St. Mark's Pro
testant Episcopal church, of Danville,
111., of which Rev. Taliaferro F.
Caskey, D. D., for some years rector
of Grace Episcopal church of this
bord was the editor, announces the
probable discontinuance of the pub
lication. Dr. Caskey says in his vale
dictory: "The editor does not feel
that ho has struck the ideal outlined
In the salutatory, but he has ever had
that ideal in view. The Parish his
tory has been printed from month to
month, and every article has been
written with a view to the deepening
of personal religious life, and has
been sent out with the earnest prayer
that it might accomplish that where
unto it was sent. The editor lays
down his pen with regret that he has
not done more, but with heart-deep
'gratitude for the kind words that
have been said, and for the efficient
work of the business manager with
out which the Dial could not have
been printed. To these printed rec
ords we will often turn, realizing
their value as they recede into the
past. 'As the hand of time moves
on and on, most things that we pos
sess iritist weaken as they approach
the ultimate end. But the friend
ship of a good, true comrade is a
hing that never diminishes. As each
year rolls by it gets stronger and
stronger and we appreciate more and
more its ever-increasing value to us.'
The editor would fain make these
beautiful words his Eastertide greet
ing to all his friends, 'not only in St.
Mark's Parish, but in that wider cir
cle into whose hands this good-bye
number may fall."
Last Tuesday's Scranton papers
contained elaborate accounts of so
cial functions enjoyed by the friends
of Miss Dorothy Warren, daughter of
the eminent attorney, Major Everett
Warren, at the homes of her girlhood
intimates, in honor of her approach'
ing marriage to Nathaniel P. CoW'
dey, of New York City, which has
been publicly announced for noon
yesterday, April 29 th. On Wednes
day morning, however, Major War
ren having been ailing for a day or
two, was subjected to a critical ex
amination, and it was definitely de
cided by the physicians in attendance
that he was suffering from acute ap
pendicitis, and that an immediate
operation was imperatively necessary.
Consequently all arrangements for
the announced marriage function
were abandoned, and the simple cere
mony took place at the Warren home,
at noon on Wednesday, Rev. Rogers
Israel, D. D rector of St. Luke's
Episcopal church, officiating. Im
mediately after the ceremony Major
Warren was removed to the State
hospital whore an operation was per
formed, which the local papers say
was eminently successful, Mr. and
Mrs. Cowdrey are now at the Wat
kins Summer Home, at Glenburn,
where they will remain pending de
velopments In Major Warren's con
dition. Tho serial story entitled "Tho

On Monday of this week a tele
gram was received at The Citizen of

W. W. Wood, a great grandfather, as

The Gardner-Vincent Company.
Manager Dlttrlch is to be con
gratulated upon being able to in
stall "The Gardner-Vincent Stock Co.
in Honesdale for the month of May.
Their idea Is to give two different
plays each week, three nights for
each play at popular prices and one
matinee on Saturday.
It will be remembered this com
pany played here last season and at
once established itself as one of the
best organizations on the road.
Mr. Gardner and Miss Vincent
have been starring this season in all
the large cities and have scored
heavily. Through a special effort
on the part of our local manager this
company comes back to Honesdale,
with even a better company than
they had here before. Only the lat
est New York successes will be pre
"A Woman's Struggle," a comedy
of manners, tho opening -play is a
very strong one, dealing with up-to-date
New York society, on the style
of "Paid in Full" and "Tho Lion and
tho Mouse." Strong, stirring situ
ations, great heart Interest and a
vein of clever satirical comedy
throughout. It calls for beautiful
settings, handsome gowns and with
out doubt will be the event of the
dramatic season here. Every mem
ber of the company Is called upon
to test hla or her ability to their
Mr. Gardner as Schuyler Alnslee, a
young clubman, has a part which
fits him like a glove. Miss Vincent
as Margaret Irvlngton, will no doubt
gain now laurels and will be called
upon to display her emotional talent
oven to greater degree than sho did
as "Camille" (If it is possible).

Honesdale will appreciate Manager

A Man's Life Saved After Choking
on Tough Beef.
How a man's life was saved by a
common seldlltz powder is described
by a German physician, Dr. Franck,
who was called to treat a man who
had swallowed a large piece of tough
meat, which stuck in his gullet. As
It was impossible to dislodge the
meat by natural means, and as the
patient's condition was critical, the
doctor tried the ' efficacy of the gas
which is generated when the constitu
ents of a seldlltz powder are mixed.
He directed the man to swallow the
two halves of one of the powders
separately, and the resulting pneuma
tic pressure, aided by the man,, who
shut his mouth and closed the nasal
passages, was sufficient to drive the
piece of meat out of the gullet into
A Lazy Boy's Invention.
Tho long-handled shovel has mads
'over .three hundred thousand dollars
for its Inventor, and the inventor was
a lazy, shiftless boy of seventeen,
named Reuben Davis, whose father
lived In Vermont at the time. He set
Reuben to digging dirt and loading It
on a wagon, and the short-handled
shovel made the boy's back ache. One
afternoon when his father was away,
he took out the short handle and sub
stituted a long one, and found the
work much easier.
When Mr. Davis reached home Reu
ben got a whipping; but after the old
gentleman had used the shovel him
self, ha saw that it was a good thing,
and had it patented. They are now
manufactured almost by the million.
The Gods of India.
India is a land of Idols. It is esti
mated that there are three hundred
and thirty-three million gods In Hin
dustan. The three great and special
ly venerated deities are Brahma, Vish
nu, and Siva tho Hindu Trimurtl or
trinity. Brahma stands first, unap
proachable. There are only three
temples in all India erected in his
honor; he ,1s merely Invoked as tho
chief of the Trimurtl, but is not made
the object of actual worship, as he
is not supposed to take any interest
In mundane affairs. He is the cre
ator, the giver of all gifts and of all
blessings and controls the destines of
men, yet at the same time Is com
pletely indifferent to them.
It Is now claimed that the United
States makes just as good Limburger
cheese as does the province in Bel
glum, where It originated. The Amer
ican method is to take a piece of a
calf's stomach and set it away in a
warm place in a can of whole milk.
In about forty minutes the curdling
mess is pounded and then the whey
pressed out. Afterward forms are
filled and further drainage permitted.
Salt is rubbed on the outside until it
becomes slippery; then the cheese is
set away in the cellar, where it is left
to ripen for a month or two, and the
germs do the rest.
Famous Woman Explorer,
Mrs. Marie Robinson Wright ot

for having accomplished more In the
way of penetrating countries hitherto
unknown than any other living wom

has opened to the pioneers of trade
and commerce a new paradise that
blooms south of. the equator, where
untold wealth awaits development at
