The singing by the augmented choir was excellent and the orchestra as sisted appreciably In the musical part of the program. Mr. Hiller spoke for 40 minutes, 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 Israel crossing the Red Sea, when God, at the command of Moses, caus ed the waves to roll aside so that his people might cross over on dry land, lie said: ' I am glad indeed that this High Children's day wns celebrated, Mr. school class of 1910 has chosen a 'Hiller, before commencing his ser motto so completely in sympathy, so ; mon, asked the women to remove heartily in accord with the spirit of their hats.

" As at the morning service, when t'o class or lyiu at iionesuaie High school began. The room was com pletely filled with the parents and friends of the graduates, and every number on the programme was ex cellently rendered and greeted by liberal applause.

All the young folks participating gave evidence of careful training on the part of the teachers. The dec lamations and recitations were well enunciated and the choruses were strong and even. Mr. Stocker's his torical sketch evinced very graphical ly and clearly the steps that led to the erection of the new school build ing. The salutatory of Clarence Bodie and the valedictory of Miss Grace Hanlan were well-worded and intelligent efforts, with plenty of school spirit infused and words of appreciation for the directors and teachers.

While standing at the top of a ladder, trimming dead branches from a tree In front of his homo, James F. Dillon, aged 21, was electrocuted when tho pruning BhearB ho was using came In contact with a live electric light wire. Tho wire carrlod 2,400 voltB of al ternating current, which probably accounts for tho remarkablo fact that not the slightest sign of any burn or scar was found on tho body. Af ter a consultation among the experts of the electric light company, It was said It was possible an autopsy would be performed to see If heart failure caused death. No one witnessed the accident, but It is believed Dillon was facing the sun, and for that reason did not see wire. Attended State Meeting. State Orchard Inspector W. H. Bul lock returned Saturday from Harris burg, where he attended last week the meeting of the State orchard Inspectors. Xow It's Manager Callnwny. The Wayne County Herald di rectors met Saturday and elected Edward B. Callaway manager of the paper. He will continue his news getting in connection with his new job. Woodmen Will Have u Ball.

Representative Derouen has given notice of a bill in the lower house of ' the Louisiana legislature for "the ab i solute suppression of the playing of I bridge whist." "I am introducing this measure," declared Mr. Derouen for the benefit of children who rare- ly have an opportunity to know their bridge-playing mothers." 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. New (rude and Sidewalk. Messrs. Dunkelherg, Ham, Burnard and GIbbs havo joined forces in Im proving the sidewalks and curbing in front of their property. They have established a grade and have contracted with R. H. Brown to con struct new concrete curbing and side walks that will make a vast improve ment to that portion of Main street, and which will bo greatly appreciat ed by people who travel this portion of the town.

The couple left for a short trip and will make their home at Towanda, where Mr. Kimble is in business, he being general manager of the Wayne Cut Glass company. SCXDAV MORX1XG FIRE. 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. . " r'V " J , lu.rc,f time-indeed, it got under 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. WAYMART HIGH SCHOOL. Graduating Exercises In Methodist Cliiui'li Largely Attended and Interesting. 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. Reed, Hazel J. Shaffer, Floyd R. Car penter. Tho program was finely car ried out and all the numbers were generously applauded. In full it was as follows: Overture, orchestra.

STARTED UP MOXDAV MORXIXG UXDIilt AGKEEMEXT WITH WHICH BOTH SIDES ARE UNDERSTOOD TO HE SATISFIED. 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. CHILDREX'S DAY IX CHURCH. 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 daisies. 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. Oil' To See The Great West.

Illustrated lectures will bo given on the latter train, practical experiments perform ed and general instructions given. Tho college is said to bo undertaking a work unsurpassed In magnitude by that of any other school in tho coun try. The Fairs of Susquehanna. The Susquehannn county fairs wflfi bo hold as follows: .
