Sunday Mothers' Day. Growing
out of the devotion of. one woman
who set aside the day on which her
mother died to be an occasion each
year consecrated to the memory of
the departed loved one, tho observ
ance of Mothers' Day has spreail
with such rapidity that tho second
Sunday in May of last year, the first
anniversary of Mothers Day, found
a nation kneeling at the shrine of
inother-lovo. Mothers' Day was first
observed on tho sec,ond Sunday In
Mny, 1908. The public is asked to
wear a white carnation to properly
observe this day. If mother is liv
ing, wear tne carnation, but also
sit down nnd write the good, old
soul a kind letter, full of tho af
fection that you surely have for her
but havo been too busy to tell her
about very; often. She will appre
ciate It moro than all the carnntlonB

truth is to keep in close touch with
hor as long as she lives, nnd assure
her constantly of your affection nnd

daisies, sho won't need It.

A largo delegation of the promi
nent citizens of Wnyno county call
ed on tho county commissioners on
Tuesday and mnde a request that
thoy avail themselves of the propo
sition made by tho State Armory
Board of Pennsylvania to place an
armory in Honesdale for tho bene
fit of tho Wayne county members
of the National Gunrd, the State
Armory Board agreeing to placo a
building costing from $15,00o to
$20,000, If the county would fur
nish the site. The delegation re
quested the commissioners to ap
propriate $1,000 and called their at
tention to the fact that the State
Legislature had passed an Act giv
ing them the authority not only to
make this npproprlntion but furth
ermore recommended that the same
be done. The attention of the com
missioners wns called to the fact
that under the old enrollment net,
Wayne county wns taxed 50 cents on
encli male citizen over 18 nnd under
45 yenrs of age, capable of bearing
arms, and as we have an enrollment
of 3500 this meant a tax of $1730
each year. The new National Guard
act repealed this law and saved
I Wnyno county this amount each year
and consequently tho members of
: tho National Guard (Company E)
of Wnyno county, who by their ol
J untary services save this amount
, to the county each year, are entitled
to a home. Tho commissioners went
into session, and finding that tho
law hail been properly quoteu, nnd
that they were under obligations to
the citizen soldiery of the county,
agreed to appropriate $1,000 to
wards a site, tho citizens of Hones
dale to furnish tho balance.
It was tho general Impression of
those who were present and listen
ed to the arguments of the delega
tion, that the action of the commis
sioners was wise, and should win
: for them the commendation of the
t people of Wayne county.

"Waiters who hire out for parties
oight to be trained for that," said
ono who has suffered. "Last night at
a little party I was giving, a waiter I
thought knew his business walked up
to a distinguished singer, who was In
the midst of a song, and insisted upon
her taking a plate of salad and a glass
of punch. She had to stop the song
to get rid of him."
