Passengers who left Honesdale
on the 7:15 p. m. train on Sunday,
the 13th inst., were treated to a ride
which reminded them of the 'old
gravity days." The engine pulling
the train broke down at vVaymart,
and could not proceed any further.
As it was impossible to use the air
brakes, the crew resorted to the use
of the hand brakes, and permitted
the train to run back to Honesdale,
a distance of ten miles by gravity, as
in days of old.
In the "Afternoon Echoes" of
tho Scranton Truth, we find the fol
lowing: "Few men In Pennsylvania
enjoy a wider acquaintance or are
lore generally esteemed than Hon.
K. B. Hardenbergh, of Honesdale,
who was In Scranton Tuesday at
tending a meeting of tho Board of
Directors of tho State Hospital of
which he is a member. It Is said
of Mr Hardenbergh that during his
term as Auditor Genernl, at Harris
burg, his office was the most popu
lar on the Hill,' and that every
man who went there on business
fame away with the Impression that
he had met a friend."
Tho young people from this city
and Dunmore who recently went to
Honesdale to participate In the lit
erary contest, together with the pu
pils from tho Honesdale school Inno
cently danced on the feelings of a
number of the good people of that
town, when they danced In the gym
nasium of the high school after the
ontest was over. A committee of
the lay members of the quarterly
conference of one of the churches
met with the school board this week
and strenuously objectod to tho
board giving permission for tno uso
of tho gymnasium for dancing on
any more similar occasions. This
proves that tho world is growing
better even if it doesn't move very
fast - Carbondalo Leader.

Tho .Mini ha Washington Supper Last
On Washington's birthday all
roads lead to the Presbyterian
Chapel, and the roads and sidewalks
were almost impassable, but In spite
of the disagreeable storm which was
in full blast, crowds wended their
way to the chapel to unite In the ex
cellent supper which the ladles of the
church always serve. The main
room of the chapel was beautifully
decorated in pink and white; a large
circle was suspended below the chan
delier in the center of tho ceiling
and radiating from this center were
streams of pink roses, held together
by delicate threads that were invisi
ble, making a very artistic appear
ance and forming a very pleasing
effect. There were two booths, each
being very handsomely decorated,
tho candy booth with pink chrysan
themums and the fancy work booth
with pink roses. The parlor which
accommodates twenty-two people,
was decorated in red popples, while
the dining-room had the national
colors very artistically arranged with
the pictures of George and Martha
There was an orchestra of three
pieces, which discoursed sweet mu
sic and the Inclemency of tno weath
er was forgotten, as the people re
moved their wraps and joined in the
pleasantness of the occasion. From
all appearances tho usual large at
tendance was maintained. Mr. John
E. Richmond, whose wife has always
been prominent in these annual
gatherings, hnd arranged a free bus
service so that all who wished had
conveyance to and from the supper.
His thoughtfulness and generosity
was very much appreciated.

ENCE. In Philadelphia, on Chestnut St.,
stands tho famous building now
known as Independence Hall, which
UBed to bo called tho State Houso.
This cdiflco Is ono of tho shrines of
American pntrlotlBm, for It was In
one of Its low-roofed, quaint old
rooms, that the Declaration of In
dependence, which mndo of the
United States a nation, was debated
nnd decided.
The Declaration was signed on the
day of Its adoption by every member
present who voted for It. John
Hancock, whose name headed all tho
others, said: "We must be unani
mous; there must bo no pulling dif
ferent ways; wo must all hang to
gether." "Yes," said Franklin, "we must
all hang together, or we shall all
hang separately."
Everywhere the Declaration was
hailed with Joy. It was read to the
army amid exulting shouts, it gave
the Inspiration of a great cause, and
sustained them in the dark days of
that long, revolutionary struggle, un
til that which was declared in In
dependence Hall in 177G was glori
ously achieved by Washington In
1783 "the liberty of our land.
