Tho New York Tribune thinks
that "now that Col. James M. Guf

of party assets exceeding the liabili
ties, as in the case of Guffey."
Eloping couples from Pennsyl
vania and others from the Keystone
state who go to Binghamton, N. Y.,
to wed are becoming a source of
considerable expense to the city tax
payers, says the Binghamton Press.
The law provides that a minister or
person registering the record of a
marriage shall be entitled to a fee
of 25 cents for each wedding re
corded. At the last meeting of the
health board one minister had a bill
of $50 for 200 marriages to be
audited. Of the 828 marriages re
corded last year, It is estimated that
nearly COO were from Pennsylvania,
which would mean that eloping
couples cost the local taxpayers $150.
An auto owner not totally un
known In Wayne county went with
a party of three for a ride In Pike
county. Night overtaking them on
the road about 30 miles from Hones
dale, they stopped at a hotel for sup
per and lodging and to have the mud
scraped off the machine. Two meals
and one lodging for the party came
to $19. That was paid without a
holler. The man who scraped and
brushed the machine said he thought
he ought to have $4. He got It. The
man who paid the two bills says 19
and four make 23, according to his
arithmetic, but that he proposes to
keep his auto and entertain his
friends, for all the hotel men and the
stable help In Pike and Monroe are
so steep In their charges.
Judge A. T. Searle has handed
down an opinion refusing a new trial
in the case of M. J. Lavin against
Maria B. Hull. Lavin is a butcher
in Olyphant, where Mrs. Hull lives.
Six or eight years ago Joseph A.
Hull, son of the defendant, bought
goods of Lavin and when the bill
nmounted to a little more than $100
and Hull showed no disposition to
pay, Lavin cut off his meat supply.
Mrs. Hull agreed to pay for what
ever her son ordered nnd Lavin again j
provided him meat. When tho bill
amounted to $213.15, on April 25,
1904, and Mrs. Hull had paid noth
ing, Lavin once more shut down on
the meat supply and sued. A Jury
gave him a verdict for the full
amount and interest from April 25,
1904. Tho plaintiff's counsel ap
plied for a new trial, which was re
fused. With Duffer Weaver, who
knows tho ground, for a pilot, tho

The above represents the umpire's
score of the Honesdale-Carbondale
game In the latter city Sunday. The
Maple City boys went to Carbondale
to play ball for clean sport and noth
ing else. One James Campbell of
Carbondale, who Impersonated the
umpire, could not see It that way.
In the first he began to rub It Into
Honesdale. In the third, with the
bases full, Gregor slashed out as
clean a two-base hit as Sundny was
a warm day, but "Umpire" Camp
bell could not see it in that light.
He called the ball foul. This was a
crisis for the Honesdale team.
To make a long story short, It took
two and one-half hours to play five
Innings of this sort of ball, and in
