Who are tho three B's in llonesdnle who bore for money, and not for honey? There are two postofflces In the United States named Seelyvllle our own thriving suburb, and one In Vigo county. Indiana. Dr. P. B. Peterson, of Hones dale, and Dr. Geo. T. Rodman, of Hawley, have each recently become owners of Ford autos. Mrs. S. M. Swingle, formerly of South Canaan, Wayne county, is critically 111 at her home, 007 Twenty-fourth street, Scranton, with poor hopes for recovery. -The Dunmoro High school bas ket ball team after being defeated by the Uouesdalu team, wont to ParbondaTe on Saturday and won a victory from the High school team of that city, the score being 13 to 12. Comrade E. E. Belknap, form erly of Prompton, now of Kingston, Pa , was in Honesdale on Saturday and called at the Citizen office. Time does not change Ed. Ho ia the same old Belknap of convention 1 j days. - Special Lenten services at liraco Episcopal church: Children's services will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 4:15 p. in., and the sub ject will be "The Sorrows and .loys of the King"; Litany and Sermon, Wednesday, Fob. 23, at 7:30 p. m.; sermon and reading from "The Cross Builders," Thursday, at 4:15 p. m. - The postofflce nt Honesdale is being renovated to the extent of having its interior walls and ceilings treated to a coat of alabastlne. The ceiling will be done in cream-colored material, while the side walls will have a more pronounced tint and it Is expected that this will add greatly to the appearance of both the waiting and working rooms. -We have received the follow ing notice from Starrucca, Pa.: Come! Where? To the King Hill school house, Friday evening, Feb. 25th, and hearthe little folks, who will be assisted by an orchestra of stringed Instruments. After tho en tertainment, stay to seo the orange tree, pie and cake sale. Proceeds to pay for a new organ. K. Ituth Kennedy, Teacher. 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. -At last wo are to have the much talked of musical sensation, "Tho Soul Kiss," which comes to tho Lyric, .Monday, Feb. 28th, with tho New York, Chicago, and Boston pro duction. It is said that tho com pany Is playing to capacity every where, and judging from tho splen did reports that "Tho Soul Kiss" Is receiving everywhere, it will no doubt cause a great society event in this place, Tho Soul Kiss com pany coming directly from Atlantic City, tho people of Honesdale are as mired of having a capable company In presenting this successful musical nliow.

Too little attention has been paid to these places nnd historians might make a study of the great leader's head quarters should they devote to the matter time and care. As it is, with tho decay of many of theso ancient buildings, there Is likely to pass away Interesting relics of the early his tory of our country which shoulu bo preserved for tho Instruction and edification of posterity. Tho gymnasium of tho High school was the scene of a fast game of basket ball on Friday evening when the Honesdale High school team defeated Dunmore High school by tho scoro of 22 to 8. Owing to the hedgo fenco guarding of the lo cals, Dunmore was unnhlo to scoro a field goal, all their tallies being a result of good foul shooting.

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 Washington. 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.

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. tlK.V.I.
