addressing himself particularly to
the graduates, whom he gave some
exceptionally sane, wholesome and
practical advice. After telling about
the experience of the children of

people might cross over on dry land,

Old Potatoes-Drug On Market.
New potatoes are in the market and
last fall's crop remaining can hardly
be sold at any price. In some places
buyers have quoted as low as IS
cents per bushel in carload lots in
some instances and they generally
retail at 25 cents. Such low prices
will not pay for handling and draw
ing and farmers are feeding them to
stock rather than tnko the trouble
to sell.

It Didn't Amount To .Much Except To
Empty the Churches.
At 11:15 Sunday morning the
gong was sounded for a slight blaze
in the George Conzelman house at
513 Church street, next door to the
National hotel. A bundle of rags got
on lire in the house and somebody
sent in an alarm. The fire didn't
amount to much. One pail of water
put it out in short order. When the
fire companies got to the spot there
was nothing for them to do.

This lire happened to start just at
way almost at the moment the domi
nies on Church street were giving
out their texts for the morning ser
mons and the pews were half
emptied In less than 15 seconds from
the time of the first gong. All the
young men. several of the old men,
and about a score of women went
from church to the lire. One elderly
business man, nudged by his wife,
who reminded him he'd left an oil
stove burning in their room at the
hotel where the couple reside, bolt
ed into the street to see where the
blaze was. He found It was, or rath
er lind been, 300 yards from the ho
tel, so he went back and reassurred
his better half.
Graduating Exercises In Methodist
Cliiui'li Largely Attended and
The commencement exercises of
the Wnymart High school were held
on Friday evening in the Methodist
Episcopal church, which was filled to
overflowing with an appreciative au
dience and one that gave strong evi
dence of loynlty to their High school.
The presence of Prof. Dooley, who
for so many years presided over the
school, was missed, but the trustees
were fortunate In securing the ser
vices of Mrs. Jacob A. Deemer, who
took up tho work and carried it to
sucli a successful issue.
Tho graduates were: Hylla M.
Ames, Angle M. Cromwell, Rozella
E. Farley, Ida A. Lee, Mildred E.

At the works of Krantz, Smith &
Co., 150 men went back to work
Monday morning under an agreement
the company has made with the
American Flint Glass Workers'
Union. Neither side would say much
about the terms now in force, but
conversation with representatives of
the company and of the union left tho
impression that the former are glad
to be making glass again and that
the men who returned to work are
pleased at the prospect of more pay
days. There are still 100 to 200 glass
workers out of the Honesdale fac
tories ,but some of these, it must bo
remembered, have gone to work in
other places. Every man with a Job
and a pay envelope helps Honesdale
just that much, and citizens very
generally are suited by the resump
tion of work at Krantz, Smith & Co's.
Beautiful Exercises at Presbyterlnn
and Methodist Houses of Wor
' ship Sunday.
In splto of the inclemency of the
weather, the Presbyterian church
was well filled with the relatives and
friends of the boys and girls, all of
whom were well pleased with the ex
cellent program of songs and recita
tions given by the young folks. The
church was handsomely decorated
with greens and Howers, mostly
On the platform, assisting Supt.
Thompson, were Rev. Dr. Swift, H.
S. Salmon and R. M. Stocker, the
assistant superintendent. The chil
dren and members of the school oc
cupied the front seats.
After the invocation, children of
Mr. and Mrs. Voltaire, Mr. and Mrs.
W. H. Bader, and Mr. and Mrs.
Clarence Bond were baptised. Then
followed the exercises, mostly by the
primary scholars, who had been ex-,
cellently drilled by Miss Watt and
her assistants. A solo was well ren
dered by Eda Krantz.
The pastor's sermonette was based
on the verse, "Consider the lilies of
the field, how they grow," and was
interesting to young and old. The
singing by the larger scholars was
excellent and the whole order of ex
ercises made the services enjoyable
and profitable.
At the Methodist church the labor
ing oar in the exercises was taken
by the Sunday school superintendent,
W. W. Baker, who announced the
numbers of the very interesting and
appropriate program. It was called
"The Children's Hour" and included
recitations by Wayne Spettigue, Mil
ton Buchanan, Earl Arnold, Herbert
Canfield and Alice Dibble, a duet by
Jessie Toms and Ruth Dibble, duet
by Garnet Robbins and Edith Robin
son, duet by Frances Church and
Stanley Jenkins. ' Rev. W. H. Hiller
spoke briefly of the Children's day
collection In aid of poor students,
who have five years to repay their
education loans. The organist, Mrs.
Nelson J. Spencer, with Mrs. W. A.
Sluman and James Miller, violins,
and Frank Robinson, cornetist, fur
nished harmonious music. They also
played for the union services nt night.
