There is nothing In this beautiful
old world of ours, that has as much
attraction for the average man, as
a young nnd handsome widow.
There seems to be a bond of sym
pathy between all mankind and this
branch of feminity, probably for the
reason that she was bereft of the
cause of all her earthly Joys and
sorrows, so early In her young life.
For this reason, the eight Ameri

at the Lyric with Mr. Howard
Hall's newest musical comedy,

Two Cows Killed by Purls Green
Mixed With Salt.
Friday morning Richard Freethy
and James Smith discovered that
they each had a sick cow In tho
pasture lot, rented by them and in
which, also, were eight other cows.
An Investigation soon revealed the
cause of the trouble. Piles of salt,
mixed with Paris green, were ar
ranged in .1 wide circle In the lot,
In tho centre of which was left a
pall of water, the pall being fur
nished by the miscreant, who did
the poisoning, in order to make the
job sure. Several other cattle,
evidently, from their actions, had
taken some of the salt and poison,
but only the two mentioned have
That Honesdale harbors such a
cowardly miscreant Is almost In
credible, and if he Is discovered we
shall not feel a little sorry for' him,
for the punishment will be swift and
We wish to suggest that the 20,
000 seal stickers now being issued
to advertise Honesdale's Old Home
Week, are not made for the pur
pose of ornamenting your neigh
bor's doors, show-windows, walls,
or anything of the sort, and don't
make a nuisance of yourself by so
doing. Put them on the back of
your letters, postal cards, and on
bundles, boxes or anything of the
kind, which Is going outside of
Honesdale. Every one here, who
Is not deaf and blind, knows, or
will know, all about It. Send tho
stickers out of town. That's the
purpose for which they were con
structed. Old Homo Week.

Inspector for the Borden Con
