Dr. F. W. Lange, a physician
and chemist, of Scranton, claims to
have discovered the secret of the
ages, that of changing base metal in
to purest silver or gold. While de

physical condition, inhaled some of
the gas generated by the process,

While a train on the Southern
railroad was speeding along at the
fate of '70 miles an" hour, endeavor
ing to make up lost time, 1t came
upon a portion of the road near
Cedar Run, Virginia, where a repair
gang had removed a section of the
rails. Although the engineer turned
off the steam and applied the air
brakes, the train composed of all
Pullman cars, plunged over the rail
less ties for a distance of nearly 600
feet, creating havoc with ties and
roadbed, doing but little harm to the
train, but shaking up the passengers
greatly but with no serious Injury.
Our townsman, A. L. Schuller, and
his wife were on the train, but es
caped without injury. Mr. Schuller
left for New York on Wednesday
where he takes up a responsible posi

William Skelton, a man who
over 50 years ago was identified with
Honesdale's Industries, is now paying
us a visit and although he finds most
of his old associates have gone to the
other world, yet he finds enjoyment
In talking and shaking hands with
many of our old residents who were
school children when he was In ac
tive business life. Mr. Skelton Is oyer
86 years of age, has a remarkable
memory, active and vigorous as many
men of sixty. He was employed one
time as foremnn by Knapp & Neal,
who had a foundry nnd machine shop
(tho building still remaining) on
River road. He tells of a suspension
bridge that spanned the Lackawaxon
at that point. Mr. Skelton was an
engineer In the navy and was on one
of the gunboats that laid off Charles
ton Harbor during tho war, taking
active part In the bombardment and
preventing blockade runners from
bringing supplies to the Confeder
ates. George Stegmaler, tho wealthy
WIlkes-Barro brewer who died re
cently, won for Honesdale tho baso
hall championship of northeastern
Pennsylvania In 1875. The contest
was. between Honesdale and Wllkes
Barre. Honesdale had won ono game;
their pitcher, Waterman, deserted
them before the second' game, which
they lost. When tho deciding game
was about to be played at Wllkes
Barre, tho Honesdale team needed a
man to complete their nine. Somo
ono approached Billy Sllverstono of
tho Honosdalo club, and said, "Get
that Dutchman to help you," point
ing to Stegmaler; "ho has been drop
ped by the Wllkes-Barro team, but ho
Is a good player." Stegmaler was ask
ed to play with Honesdnlo, and con
sented. Ho wns placed on first baso,
and It was his rcmarkablo playing
of that position, and his heavy hit

game and championship for Hones

"Free lists positively suspended,"
reads a sign nt the Herald Square
Theatre, and long before this tho
greater pnrt of Broadway has found
out that It Is true. Neither the sign
nor the Ironclad rule of tho house
that It bo obeyed, however, stopped
Ezeklel Kembnll of Bethnny, Pa.,
from seeing Miss Mnxle Dressier In
nil the glory of her nightmare, or,
rather, "Tlllle's Nightmare," as the
r'ttest of her mnngement. In fact,
It scarcely even made him pnuse.
Just how It nil happened Is worth
Shortly before the opening of the
first net Inst Wednesdny afternoon
Lew Fields, James H. Dnlton, Marie
Dressler's business representative,
and Harry Hyams, manager of the
Hernld Square Theatre, were interest
ed in seeing a white haired gentleman
with three small children demand ad
mission on what wns obviously a
"pass." He was about to be refused
when Mr. Fields happened to glance
at tho slip of paper. It read: "Ad
mit Benrer, Colosseum, Broadway
and Thirty-fifth street.'1
The pass Itself was signed by
Thomas W. Tobln, manager's offlce,
and was good for four "admissions.
Mr. Kembnll had carefully selected
three of lib favorite grandchildren
to make up the party of four, and '
there he was.
The momentary hesitation on the '
part of the box offlce man to honor !
tin lined illcnnnnnymt ltTfr. i.tnrvln I
Mr. Fields and the two gentlemen
with him each hastened to buy the
tickets and claim tho pass. In his
appreciation of their courtesy the old
gentleman gave them the history of
the Interesting bit of paper.
Way back In 1S74 a personal
friend of his, who in iho3e days had
edited a small paper In Pennsylvania,
made a trip to New York and re
ceived the pass to the Colosseum.
Being unable to attend himself, and
knowing that Mr. Kemball was com
ing to New York, he gave it to him.
Mr. Kemball did come, but as the
Colosseum at that time wab consider
ed far uptown, and his business was
all downtown, Mr. Kemball likewise
failed to use the pass. But lie kept
it just the same, and last week found
.time to use It.
After the performance Mr. Kem
ball was taken back on the stage,
where he most gallantly expressed
his pleasure at having waited thirty
six years to use the pass, so long as
his delay resulted In permitting him
to see Miss Dressier, but he seemed
just a trifle surprised. Some one
asked him if he had not enjoyed the
show and he most promptly said he
had, but it was a little different than
he had expected to see.
. A hasty research into Ne.w, York
liistpry disclosed the fact that when
the pass was Issued the Colosseum
was given over exclusively to panor
ama shows, but that the venture early
proved a failure, and not many
months after its opening the theatre
was converted Into an aquarium.
Fish tanks along the sides of the
walls contained various species of
fish, and in the centre of what Is now
the theatre a circus performance wns
given twice daily.
But the old Colosseum was not des
tined to end its days In such fashion.
'New owners again decided to convert
it into a theatre. Booth's Theatre,
down at Sixth avenue anu Twenty
third street, had burned down short
ly before, but the prosenium arch re
mained intact and it was used in the
"Ned" Harrlgan a short time after
secured control of the theatre and
renamed It Harrigan's Park Theatre.
It remained that until it again chang
ed owners and became Jhe Herald
Mr. Kemball returned to Bethany
Thursday a trifle disappointed at not
seeing the panorama, hut much pleas
ed that tho pass was good. More
over, ho has promised to come again
and not wait another thirty-six years
before doing it, either. New York
