The White Rlbboners offered a prize to the member of the Physiology class In the Honcsdalc High school who would write the best essay on "Alcohol and the Laborer." There were fifty ossnys submitted. The prize was awarded to Alice Sluman, aged " years. The essay we print in full: Alcohol Is the laborer's enemy. The end and aim of all the body pro- cesses is to work. To accomplish this end the body must keep warm. The ( more perfect the body can accomplish these conditions, the more able is the i a i ... ' - i i . exceedingly trying time apart from the heat of the weather. In that column of some thirty thousand men, the first who dropped were not the tall men, or the short men, or the big men, or the little men, but the drinkers, and they dropped out as wUh a bJg ,etter' on thep backs ., These and other experiments of the same nature thus demonstrate that alcohol has the effect of diminishing the capacity of a man for muscular work, oven when the alcohol is taken what aro generally considered as moderate amounts. From these re- ftfXe? even ln S0.caUed moderation, is a Da(i practice for anyone who wishes to do hard work or endure sustained exertion. In skill and accuracy, nnd in the direction and expenditure of energy the man who has taken no alcohol has a great advantage over ",c mau wuu uua- ,a '" u,u" la any emergency, and can Judge bet- Her how to make his strength most effective. Science has proved that the drinking man cannot work long or as hard as can the abstainer, that his work is not so accurate, and that he Is more likely to make mis takes. Liquor does not fortify against cold. Doctor Hayes, the Arctic ex plorer, says: "In Arctic countries, al cohol is, ln almost any shape, not only completely useless, but positively in Jurlous. I have known strong, able bodied men to become utterly incap able of resisting cold in consequence of the long-continued use of alcoholic drink." Experience shows that al cohol weakens tho power of under going severe bodily exertion. Doctor McRae. ln sncakinc of Arctic exnlor atfon, at the meeting of the American Association for the advancement of science, held at Montreal in 1856, said: ' The moment that a man hnd swallowed a drink of spirits, It was certain that his day's work was near ly at an end. It was absolutely necessary that the rule of total ab stlnance be rigidly enforced, If we would accomplish our day s task. The uso of liquor as a beverage when we had work on hand, In thnt terri fic cold, was out of the question." We have the evidence of statistics In regard to the health and mortality of people who use alcohol, and of those who do not. These have been collected in England by the life In surance companies. They indicate that the life of the abstainer Is, on the average, longer than that of the drinker. Also, It has been found that the hospitals get their inmates to n much greater extent from the drinkers than from the abstainers. The drinker is less able to resist infection, and the physicians ln these hospitals all ac knowledge that, once Infected with a serious disease, tho chances of the alcohol drinker nre much less than thoso of tho abstainer. Mr. Huber, who saw ln one town ln Russia two thousand one hundred nnd sixty per sons perish with the cholera in twen ty days, said: "It Is a most remark able circumstance thnt persons given to drink have been swept nway Hko Hies, in Tillls, with twenty thousand Inhabitants, every drunkard has fall en, nil are dead, not one remaining." Alcohol often lures men to crime by which they forfeit life or liberty. How much ovll Is done to men by al cohol can bo learned by examining tho records of criminal courts, where between three-fourths or nine-tenths of all the crimes listed are directly duo to the use of Intoxicants; nnd by turning tho thought to the untold miseries in countless homes, never made public, which are caused by the same evil. In Illinois, in the two penitentiaries, one at Jollet and one at unestor, tnere are tnreo tnousanu Inmates, two thousand seven hundred of whom aro there because of strong drink. In Pontine, Illinois, at the state reformatory, six hundred and It Is estimated that in England from sixty thousand to one hundred thous and vlctlmB of strong drink die every year. The late Honorable Cnauncey M. Depew, president of the New York Central Railroad Company, in a talk to railroad men, said: "Twenty-five years ago, I knew every man, woman, and child in Peekskill, nnd it has been n study with me to mark boys who started In every grnde of life with myself, to see what had become of them. "I was up last fall and began to count them over, nnd It was an in structive exhibit. "Some of them became clerks, mer chants, manufacturers, lawyers, and doctors. It Is remarkable that every one of those that drank Is dead, not one living of my age. Barring a few, who were taken off by sickness, every one that proved a wreck or wrecked his family, did It from rum and no other cause. "Of those who are church-going people, who are steady, industrious, and hard-working men, who were frugal and thrifty, every single one of them, without an exception, owns the house in which he lives, and has something laid by, the Interest on which, with liis house, would carry him through many a rainy day." When a man becomes debased with drink, he doesn't care, and all his liner feelings are crowded out. President William H. Taft, in nn interview in The Defender, New York, (Vugust, 190C, declared himself an ab stainer and told young men It was the best plan; and in 1908 he turn ed his wine glass down and said it was going to stay down forever. In his Yale lectures he declared for lo cal option. The United States government de mands total abstinance of all rural mail carriers, railway mail agents, and all working men in navy yards. A recent rule of the Civil Service Commissioner requires an investiga tion of the drinking habits of all ap plicants for government positions under civil service rules. This rule Is required by one of the largest ship building concerns In the world, by the largest capital bank note company ln the world, and by the large employ ment agencies and business houses. Recently In a large manufactory tn the western part of the- State, six thousand worklngmen signed the pledge "No drinkers wanted." Aside from all considerations of physical, mental and moral Injury wrought by the use of alcoholic drinks, every young man may well take Into account the damaging ef fect of such a dangerous habit upon his business prospects. Careful busi ness men are becoming more and more unwilling to take into their employ any person addicted to liquor drinking. Within the past few years the officers of several railroads, hav ing found that a considerable portion of their losses could be directly traced to the drinking habits of some one or more of their employes, have ordered the dismissal of all persons in their service who were known to use Intoxicants, with the additional provision that persons thus discharg ed should never be reinstated. All mercantile agencies now report the habits of business men In this re spect, and some life insurance com panies refuse to Insure habitual drinkers, regarding such risks as "extra-hazardous." Modern life has left no place for the drunkard and Is fast ousting even the moderate drlnkgr. The saloon breaks up every right relation, honesty, Industry, kindli ness, alike In the home and on the street, ln business, politics and pleas ure. The only safe way is, "touch not, taste not, handle not." NOW IN OPERATION. The Wuynu Cut Glass Company Has Thirty-live People Employed. The Towanda Reporter-Journal says: Towanda's now Industry, the Wayne Cut Glass Company, Incor porated, an establishment which has been doing business at Honesdale for the past seven years, and which was recently taken over by a number of Towanda capitalists, began opera Hons in their new home, the Tracy building, on Monday morning of last week.

Storms and Signs for the month of June says: June brings an interesting dis turbance of the solar system. This Is solstice month the turning point where we turn westward In our orbit, and where the north pole reaches Its greatest inclination to the sun. This fact throws the ecliptic on the day side of the earth 23 degrees farther north than tho celestial equator and as far soutn on the night side. This Is why the sun and moon are far north, and the summer constellations along the ecliptic and the full moon are far south at this time. Old Mother Earth Is sailing through the "House of Enemies" this month and Is opposed by the "House of Sickness;" the Indica tions are that earth will receive great affliction from the other planets. At the time of new moon Uranus is in strong aspect to the sun and Neptune. There will be seventeen "high flood" days and thirteen "low, ebb" days, and the month will be a very changeable one. Sudden and unlooked-for events will take place In many localities. Speculators must be on their guard nil through the month, for when one planet favors satisfactory deals, another opposes, nnd the chances for and against are about equal. On the whole, the month will be an excit ing one in some lines. Consider able sickness will prevail in the form of nervous diseases and stomach trouble. Vesus disturbance blends with the earth's solstice from the first part of the month to the end. The crisis of the June solstice period usually falls from the 10th to the 25th, and during nil storm periods within and about those limits except pheno menal rains, much hall with thun der and lightning, and dangerous gales and tornadoes in mnny locali ties. Extreme warmth will precede storms, with a sudden drop lu tem perature, followed by a cold wave. Avoid all surgical operations dur ing the "low ebb" dnys. Monday, the 27th, and Tuesday, the 2Sth, will be the strongest and best dnys. Sow tomato seed or transplant tomato plants Wednesday, the 1st; Wednesday, tho 8th; Friday, the 17th, afternoon, and Monday, the 27th, p. m. If the plants are train ed on supporting frames or trellises they will give much more satisfact ory results and nre more easily car ed for. ERIE Cl'T MAY OPEN ,JlTXE 15. Last Stretch of Rock Belli); Blasted Out of Bergen Hill. Final work towards getting ready the four track open cut of the Erie Is now under way and a large forco Is at work on the Incline leading from tho foot of Ninth street, Jersey City, to Palisade avenue. Here the men are blasting out rock and open ing up a clear passageway between the cut and tho fottr-trnck iron structure which leads from the Erie depot to the Bergen Hill. This stretch Is nil that has stood in the way of the completion of the new cut. This work will be hurried, as it is tho hope of the Erie officials to have the cut ready for use of at least some of their trains by June 15th. Plans are now being made for the opening of tho cut. It Is the idea of the Erie officials to make the day a memorable one In tho history of the railroad. The first train to run through will have President Under wood and the Erie officials and di rectors and the engineers who had the work of constructing the tunnel ln charge. After that another train will ho run with some prominent Jersey City officials and railroad men. Edward Salley, who Is Inspector of engines on the Erie and nn experi enced engineer, will bo tho first en gineer to run over tho new four track cut. After tho cut Is opened, the New York, Susquehanna and Western railroad trains will enter the Erie depot. They nro now entering the Pennsylvania station. Tho Susquo hnnna's arrangemont, so It Is re ported, expired June 1 with the Pennsylvania railroad. LET US PRINT YOUR BILL HEADS, LETTER HEADS, STATE MENTS, NOTE HEADS.
