Mrs. Frank N. Lord, wife of Man
ager Lord of the Allen house, who
was dragged and badly hurt In a
runaway accident at the golf!
grounds, off High street, Saturday
afternoon at 5 o'clock, was said to
day to be holding her own. Mr.
Lord stated that his wife wns as
comfortnble ns could be expected
under the circumstances.
Mr. and Mrs. Lord went for a
drive between 4 and 5 that after-1
noon. They reached the golf
grounds at the time stated. Mr.
Lord got out, but Mrs. Lord did
not care to leave the carriage Just
then, the late afternoon, after the
severe heat of the middle of the dny,
being ngreeable for driving.
"I'll Just go up the road a little
way," she said, and took the reins
from her husband. She had often
driven that road alone and Mr. Lord
expected no trouble as she went
The road from that point on is
narrow. Right behind Mrs. Lord
came Horace Moules, driving a two
wheeled rig that rattles when mov
ing at a fair clip. The Lord horse,
startled by the noise behind him,
commenced to gallop. Just then the
road began to descend on the north
side of the hill, and as he made a
sharp turn he cramped the wheel
and Mrs. Lord was suddenly thrown
out. She was dragged probably 50
feet before the horse could be stop
ped. Mr. Moules, who was close behind,
pulled up at once, and help present
ly came from the neighborhood.
Mrs. Lord was picked up and car
ried into the house of George Hel
ler, where Dr. Neilson and Dr. Pow
ell were summoned by telephone.
Mrs. Lord's right leg they found
broken in two places between the
knee and ankle. Her collarbone
was broken and she had sustained
a large number of bruises. They
reduced the fractures and put three
stitches in a bad cut in her fore
head. Sunday it was deemed safe
to remove her to the Allen house.
The carriage was badly wrecked.
The horse was not hurt. Mr. Lord
said yesterday that his horse is not
nettlesome, but is full of spirit and
likes to rush when he hears compet
ing wheels behind.
A great many friends of Mr. and
Mrs. Lord went to the Allen house
Sunday and Monday to make in
quiries as to Mrs. Lord's condition
and to offer help. Mr. Lord ap
preciates the interest of his own
and his wife's friends. It will, of
course, be not less than six or seven
weeks before the doctors will per
mit her to leave her bed.
One .Man Who Doesn't Always Give
Up Sent to Women.
About 30 passengers, including
some traveling men, on one of the
early automobile trips to Hawley
Monday morning were amused by the
hot weather humor of an elderly
Irishman who, upon giving up his
seat to a young woman with a baby,
told this story at his own expense:
"I always give up a seat to a lady
under these circumstances, but
never under any other. I made that
resolve many years ago in New York.
I gave up my seat in a street car to
a nice-looking girl, but instead of
sitting down In It she waited a mo
ment and a man I didn't know wns
with her Just Hopped Into that seat
himself and took the girl on his lap.
That taught mo a lesson. I give
up ray seat to ladles carrying chil
dren, but not to men who want to
hold girls in their laps in the same
seat where I belong."
Thirty men and women in that
auto roared. They couldn't help It.
And the men secretly envied the fel
low who got the seat and the girl
at the same time on that street car
In New York.
WHO OAX LICK JOHNSON?
I Can, Says South Muin Street Mun,
Who LackH $10,000. J
Here is a conversation that took
place In a South Main street shop
not more than 72 hours ago.
"I'll bet that if Jack Johnson
came In hero now I could lick the
blamed coon In one round and put
him out on the sidewalk quicker
than he licked Jeffries In the fif
teenth." "How much you want to bet you
can lick him?"
"Well, I'm willing to put up 10,
000 that I can do the job If you'll
only get tho nigger In hero to open
his mouth and give mo some Up."
"I'll bet you $5 (producing tho
money) that you haven't got $10,-
000, or ?5,000, to bet on anybody."
Then somebody changed the con
versation. It was about time.

has characterized his demeanor
throughout the ordeal.
His health does not appear to be

has abandoned all hope of being
freed as the result of an appeal to

COUNCIL, ACCORDING TO BORO-
UGH SOLICITOK, MUST DETER
MINE WHAT IS "A PLEASANT
RESORT" IN DECIDING WHETH
ER CENTRAL PARK IS TO BE
USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.
At the borough council meeting
Thursday evening Treasurer Genung
reported $380.02 balance on hand
June 1 and $118.25 received from
the Wayne Traction company, also
$8 from Chief Burgess John Kuh-
bach for licenses and lines.
The committee on the Consoli
dated Telephone company relative
to police calls was continued. The
scrip committee was also continued.
The committee to procure hose for
the Honesdale Hose company re
ported a donation of hose amount
ing to several hundred feet, probably
enough to carry the company
through the year. The matter of
arranging for a team to haul the ap
paratus to fires was left to the com
mittee, to report later. Several
members of the council expressed
their belief that as the borough's
water protection is pretty good at
present, It would be a good plan to
have the team called out only when
occasion demands It.
The following opinion from Bor
ough Solicitor Charles A. McCarty
relative to the use of Central Park
as a playground was read by Coun
"To the Town Council of the Borough
Gentlemen: In reply to your In
quiry regarding the conditions upon

sideration of $1 made by the Dela
ware & Hudson company and Jason
Torrey conveyed to the borough of
Honesdale the land In question, des
ignated as follows:
"A plot of ground for a public
square" and In the body of tho deed
the following conditions are found:
" 'Subject, nevertheless to tho said
conditions that the said party of the
third part (meaning the borough of
Honesdale) shall from time to time
Improve and ornament the said en
tiro described and hereby granted
plot of ground in a progressive man

a pleasant and ornamental public
plot of ground and placo for public
resort, and subject also to the furth
er special condition that there shall
be no building whatever erected or

It shall be some respectable and im

And in another part of the deed this

"From the above you wfll observe
that tho parties set forth the condi

Boy Has Close Call and Horse Is
Norman Decker was driving Clark
& Bullock's delivery horse Friday
when a broken trace scared the ani
mal and sent him away in a hurry.
At the evaporator works the wagon
went against a telephone pole and
young Decker was pitched sideways
Into the street.
He hit the pole, or rather grazed
it, as he went out of the wagon, but
he wasn't hurt. The horse did not
get off so easily, A sharp splinter
from the shaft went Into the right
hoof and the animal could not put
his foot to the ground. Dr. Ltd
stono was sent for to sew up the
wound. He told the firm that the
horse would be out of commission
probably three or four weeks.
