Hawley, Is convalescing nicely.
On Thursday afternoon of last
week there occurred a very sad ac
cldent here. Mr. George Klnback
and Mr. Stephen Short, of Scranton,
came to D. A. Locklln's to spend a
time fishing In the lake. The high
winds made the lake somewhat
rough and after they had been some'
time engaged In fishing near the head
of the lake, by some means the boat
was overturned, and the occupants
thrown Into the water. Mr. Short
could swim but Mr. Klnback could
not. Mr. Short succeeded in getting
Mr. Klnback back Into the boat
which was partly filled with water.
Mr. Klnback then cut one of the
anchor ropes while Mr. Short lifted
the other out of the water into the
boat. In their efforts to reach a
stump, some twenty feet distance,
Mr. Short swlmlng and pushing the
boat, It was again capsized and Mr.
Klnback was again thrown into the
water. It was learned from Mr.
Short that Mr. Klnback at once gave
up all hopes of being rescued and
not wlthwithstanding the brave ef
forts of air. Short he gave up. Mr.
Short's call for help was heard at
Lakevllle, more than a mile away,
and by Miss Hazel James, whose peo
ple live along the lake. Oliver
Locklln took a boat and went in
answer to the call of Mr. Short,
though they did not realize that It
was so serious a matter. Soon af-
ter Alfred .Locklln followed and
they reached Mr. Short just as he
was losing consciousness. He was
takeh from the water and they to
gether started for the home of La
fayette James, who also had started
with a boat for the scene, accom
panicd by his nephew, Harry James
of East Orange, N. J. With this ad'
ditlon he was easily carried to the
James residence where members of
the family and neighbors assisted in
restoring him. Their faithful labors
were rewarded, for ho regained con
sciousness within two hours. Dr.
White, of Ariel, came in answer to a
hurry call and ministered to the
needs of the unfortunate man.
Oliver Locklln and Harry James
went back to recover the body of
Mr. Klnback, which they succeeded
in doing, and it was taken in a boat
to the home of D. A. Locklln. A
Mr. Vosburg, of Scranton, prepared
the body for shipment. Undertaker
Teeter, of Hawley, took charge of the
remains which were removed to
Hawley for shipment to his home at
Scranton. A party from Scranton
consisting of Charles Rosar, an as
sistant of Mr. Kinback's in the hotel
business, and Herman Dlmerich, a
son-in-law of Mr. Short, arrived In
an automobile about 11 o'clock p.
m. and gave directions relating to the
care of the body and in Interest to
Mr. Short. On Friday Mr. Short
was able to accompany the party
conveying the remains to Scranton.
Mr. George Klnback was born in
Germany In 1850, and came to this
country in 1866; ho has resided In
Scranton, in which city he has been

We were pained to hear of the ac
cident that happened on October 30,
to Alson Chapman, the only son of
Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Chapman, who.
while hunting in the woods, was shot
and instantly killed. He was in
company with three other men.
They had hunted the woods over
and came out at the outlet of the
Daton Pond. Alson had his foot on
a bait box, and his gun by the side
of him. The Jar from hia foot slip
ping off caused 'the gun to go off.
The hammer being up, the charge
from the gun also Bet his clothing
on fire. He was a bright and In
dulgent boy, and would have been
twelve years old his next birthday.
Our deepest sympathy is with his
parents. He leaves to mourn his
loss, father and mother, and one lit
tle sister two years old. The fun
eral obsequies were held In the
Chapmantown church on Tuesday
at 11 o'clock, and a fine, comfort
ing discourse was given by the pas
ton, Rev. Mr. Van Sceiver. The text
selected was from St. John, the 14th
Chapter and 18th verse "I will not
leave you comfortless: I will come
to you." A largo concourse of
friends were In attendance to pay
the last tribute of respect. Four

Erie Forging Ahead In Passenger
The experiments with gasoline
motor cars which -the Erie railroad
has been conducting for more than
two years bid fair to be successful.
The management realized some time
ago the need of a frequent and eco
nomical passenger service on branch
lines where the traffic was not large
enough to justify ordinary steam
trains and yet in volume to require
a service of less expensive character
and entered upon a research which
took both time and money and has
in a measure solved the problem.
Tests were made with cars driv
en by steam, electric and gasoline
engines but so far the gasoline car
has Bhown the best results in econo
my of operation and durability.
Although the question must still be
regarded as somewhat In the ex
perimental stage, the experience
thus far gained indicates that the
gasoline motor will be the propelling
power for districts where a frequent
rather than a heavy service is neces
sary. The Erie has several branch lines
and divisions where even ordinary
passenger trains are unprofitable
that with a motor, efficient service
can bo given, making the necessary
dally trips, thereby giving the pub
lic opportunities for journeys and at
a lessened loss to the railroad.
Gasoline motors are In use on the
Wyoming Division between Sala
manca, N. Y., and Bradford, Pa., and
between Attica and Avon, N. Y. On
the Wyoming Division, the motor
car Is a handsome vehicle with bag'
gage and smoking rooms besides a
room for ladles. It is equipped
with six cylinder gasoline engine
and is making punctual trips. An

Is smaller, having no baggage com'

Getting Rid of Croton Bugs.

Third. Mix one part of arsenical
