occurred. A horse and buggy be
longing to William Fives was tied
to a post at Schooll's toimorlal par
lors, with Anna May, the llttlo
daughter of Mr. Fives, In tho seat
alone. As tho Auto Transportation
Company's bus passed, tho horse
took fright, and started down Main
street at a mad paco. When It
reached the Union depot, It turned
from the street, crossed the plat
form, and dashed around tho depot,
coming out at tho upper entrance,
and striking a tree, throwing tho
girl to tho ground, and soverely cut

evening, purposing to spend Memor
ial Day with his family, and taking
part with his comrades in tho Memor

on Tuesday that ho had died very
suddenly on Monday afternoon. Mr.
Sexton was in the employ of the
State Highway Department, and was
the Inspector for the state road
which is now being built in Dyborry

Methodist church at his home and a
steady attendant at the Honesdale

The Poyntelle House, a largo three
story frame building, for a number
of years ono of the leading summer
hotels of tho Wayne county lake re
gion, was burned to tho ground Sat
urder morning. The lire started
about 2 o'clock from somo unknown
cause, presumably an overheated
Hue, as the night was cold and extra
lires wero required In the furnace to
warm up. Tho hotel was soon In
flames, the fire spreading rapidly
through tho corridors anil upper
floors, and It was only by the best
of luck thnt tho family of Mr. Leit
nor, tho proprietor, and the help es
caped from the structure. Tho sum
mer season had not yet started, and
there were no guests In the house as
yet, other than a couplo boarders who
worked at tho ico houses.
Tho vlllagors wero quickly aroused
and did good sorvico in preventing
tho flumes from spreading to the lnrgo
burn and the Tiffany store and tho
O. & W. depot nearby, there for
tunately bolng no wind in tho direc
tion of these buildings. Scarcely
any of tho furnishings wero saved,
tho loss being almost total.
Tho hotel was built about eighteen
years ngo by Mr. Fulkorson, for tho
accommodation of summer visitors
to Lake Poyntelle, nnd was located
near tho railroad and about midway
between Poyntello and Summit
Lakes. It comfortably accommo
dated fifty people. Three years ago
tho proporty passed to tho possession
of M. J. Leltner, formerly of Forest
City, and ho had beon having con
siderable success with it and planned
a number of Improvements this year.
His loss Is $7,000 on tho building,
with $4,000 Insurance Tho furnl
turo loss will reach at least $2,00
and Is partly insured.
It is expected that the hotel will
be rebuilt.

The Automobile Trust is to put
new stock Into the market lor Wall
street to gamble with. The General
Motors company, which has a capi
tal of $t!0, 000,000, earned $12,
000,000 net last year. Bankers are
figuring on a new scheme of capi
talization something In keeping
with the Ideas of the company, and
they believe about $150,000,000
will be about right. The company
is turning out 140 cars a day and Is
far behind its orders. Ono plant Is
a quarter of a mile wide and seven
eighths of a mile long. The auto
mobile craze is the most remark
able and expensive ever seen in this
country. A New York banker Iden
tified with the company said recent
ly that he had just completed a
careful estimate of the automobiles
In use in the United States and finds
500,000 machines in actual opera
tion. This takes no account of the
second-class machines that aro only
used occasionally or that are re
tired. This half million of machines
costs an average of $1,500 each, or
$750,000 in all. .More than 100,
000 of them aro In the state of New
York. It costs an average of $1,
000 a year to operate a machine
after It is paid for, not counting the
other expenses that are incidental,
such as exorbitant prices for food
that are exacted by all Inn-keepers
from automobile travelers. Here
is an expense of $500,000,000 a
In a letter received this morning
from a gentleman residing in anoth
er county, he expresses his great
pleasure In knowing that the friend
of his childhood days, H. C. Jackson,
Is seeking the legislative nomina
tion, and that he Is standing square
ly on the Local Option platform. I
have not one word to say against
the other gentlemen who are seek
ing the same goal, but, since Local
Option Is the most important matter
that will come before the next Leg
islature, and Mr. Jackson has had
the courage of his convictions and
alone publicly declared himself on
this vital question, those who be
lieve In popular government, in home
rule, In the right of the majority to
determine this and every other ques
tion ought to a man to stand up
and be counted at the Primaries next
Saturday afternoon and cast their
ballots for Mr. Jackson, a man who
In intelligence nnd character meas
ures up to the demands of the posi
tion, and will voice the conscience of
old Wayne. In voting for Mr. Jack
son, wo arc not giving expression now
to our convictions on the Temper
ance question. We simply say: The
people, must be granted their blood
bought right of deciding this ques
tion for themselves that, and noth
ing more; and for this, .Mr. Jackson
alone of all the candidates stands, so
far as wo know. I sincerely hope that
the citizens of Wayne county, who
call themselves Republicans, will
honor themselves by voting for Mr.
Jackson. Vote, and persuade your
neighbor to vote! Give your time
and influcnco this week, and some
timo Pennsylvania shall be free.
Sincerely yours,

Unlucky vDi-iiiiiiiu-r Had to Share His
Prlzo With tho Colonel.
During tho latter years of tho war
the armies wero frequently obliged
to mnko rapid marches without their
provision trains nnd nt other times
wore obliged to pass through devas
tated regions, whero thero was not
the slightest prospect of obtaining
anything In tho way of food. As a
result df all this tho men wero con
stantly devising ways and means of
obtaining, secreting and transporting
food about their persons.
On ono of the marches of tho Army
of the Cumberland tho soldiers had
orders not to forage, but as their ra
tions wero rathor low it took sharp
watching on the part of tho officers to
provont tho men from foraging when
over tho chanco presented Itself. On
ono occasion tho bass drummor of
ono of tho regimental bands managed
to secure two turkeys and six chick
ens, which ho secreted In tho interior
of his bass drum. When they reach
ed camp that evening the band was
ordered out to play for a review that
had been arranged on tho spur of the
moment for a distinguished officer
who had arrived on a visit. All this
happened before the bass drummer
had time to remove his live poultry
from the Inside of his drum, and, of
course, when he struck It It gave
forth no sound whatever. This ex
asperated the colonel, who shouted
repeatedly to drum harder. Finally,
In a great rage, he came down to
where the latter stood pounalng for
dear life and sweating like a field
"Why in blank, blank, blank don't
you beat that drum hnrder?" ho
"Colonel," said tho drummer In a
voice husky with anguish, "there's
two turkeys and six chickens Inside
this drum, and half of them are for
"Well, why In blnzes didn't you
say so?" the colonel replied. "Fall
out at once and go back to your
As a matter of course the colonel
subsequently shared in the repast.
SENTATIVE. W. C. Ames, candidate for the nom
ination for Assemblyman on tho
Republican ticket, wns born In Haw
ley and hns spent his whole life there.
The family was among the early set
tlers of that borough, and have been
identified with it and prominent in
its development practically since the
town was founded. The triumvirate,
John, the father of the subject of this
sketch, Jacob and Reuben, engaged
In the lumbering, farming and mer
cantile business for years and in ad
dition were large dealers in cattle at
a time when droving was in vogue.
They also bought and baled for the
market largo quantities of hay, and
in these various industries did a
large business. Later the firm was
dissolved and tho partnership affairs
divided among the three.
John II., the father of our candi
date engaged In business on his own
account. William was educated in
Hip loral schools and later took a
business course at tho Eastman Busi
ness College. Poughkeepsie. After
completing his studies he engaged In
business with his rather until the
latter retired some 13 years ago. Ho
then purchased from J. F. Drake the
livery business which he has con
ducted since with marked success.
His Is a genial and open disposition
which meets and readily makes
friends. In local affairs he has serv
ed as a member of the town council
and Is at present Mayor of one of the
most thriving towns in the county.
This position he is lllling" with satis
faction to borough residents and
credit to himself. We feel certain
that as Representative he would do
equally as well. In 1909 he repre
sented Wayne co-jnty as a delegate
to the Republican state convention.
Mr. Ames Is one of Wayne's staunch
est Republicans ac well as her most
prominent citizens. adv.
