town during tho day declaring Wil
liam H. Berry to be a second Abra
ham Lincoln. Ho did not, however,
mnke any address. Ho simply stnt
ed tho business of tho meeting and
called for nominations for dolegntes.
The call for the nomination of
dolegntes wns followed by a pause.
Col. Dlmmlck waited a couple of min
utes and then suggested that Mr.
Hanlnn nnd Judge Blrdsall might
he good men to send to Philadel
phia. Thereupon Mr. Whlttnker nomi
nated them. Dr. Swift could have
been chairman of the meeting. Col.
Dlmmlck wnnted him in the chnlr,
but the dominie felt he could be
more useful on the floor.
Rev. George S. Wendell did not
make a Berry speech, though he
lets everybody know he considers
Berry the strongest man the third
ticket could command.
"My name went on that handbill
without my knowing It," said the
Baptist dominie ns he mowed his
yard Monday morning. "Tolley
came to me Thursday with what
seemed to bo a petition for such a
meeting and I signed It. Swift was
here on tho porch with me and he
signed it, too. He thought It was
a petition, the same as I did. When
I saw that dodger I got sore.
"I know Berry very Intimately.
He was a West Chester neighbor of
mine. He knows the political ropes,
knows where to get the votes, has a
big acquaintance all over the state,
and would get out and hustle.
"On prohibition he says that If
the people want local option they
ought to have It, but that he would
veto a local option bill if he thought
the people didn't want It."
One man who signed the hand'
bill to which Mr. Wendell took ex
ceptlons said Monday that only 10
men were at the meeting. He says
he counted and ho knows.
The meeting did not occupy more
than 10 minutes. The delegates go
to Philadelphia uninstructed.
Col. Dlmmlck seems to think Berry
and Blakely would be the best com
bination for the third ticket. Blake
ly is district attorney of Pittsburg.
A serious automobile accident
took place Friday afternoon between
Calllcoon and Fremont Centre, Sul

Injured, one very seriously. The
party consisted of Wlnslow M

York; Clarence J. Buekman, Sena
tor M. C. Rowland and Alfred U
Marvin, representing the state
bridge commission of Pennsylvania
and Philip Maurer, the chauffeur
The party had been nt Calllcoon
inspecting the bridge over the Dola
ware. They left Calllcoon at
o'clock to go to Fremont Centre and
thence to Hancock, and occupied
large white car. The car had climb
ed a very steep hill near Fremon
Centre and was nearly to the top
when tho steam gave out and the
machine began to run backward
down the hill. Chauffeur Maurer
applied the brakes, but the rod broke
and the car with added momentum
continued to run backward. The only
hope of averting a serious accident
was to turn the car Into the bank
at the side of the road and Chauf'
four Maurer took this course. The
car was going at such speed, how'
ever, that when it struck tho bank
It turned completely over, pinning
nil the occupants underneath it.
A number of people in tho vicin
Ity went to the assistance of th
wrecked parties and raised the ma
chine off them. The four members
of the bridge commission were se
verely cut nnd bruised, and Chauf
feur Maurer seemed to bo badly in

The quarterly meeting of the
Wayne County 'Medlcnl society was
held Thursday, at the summer homo 1
of Dr. George T. Rodman, nt Fair-'
view Lake, Pike county. The fol
lowing members wero In attendance:
Doctors W. A. Stevens, A. B. Stev
ens, E. O. Bang, S. A. Bang, F. W.
Corson, A. J. Simons, O. J. Mullen,
T. Rodman, R. W. Brndy, P. F.
Griffin, W. T. McConvlll and L. B.
Nielsen. Also the following visitors:
Doctors J. M. Walnwright, A. W.
Smith, D. A. Webb, J. D. Wilson, H.
F. Smith and R. G. Perkins of Scran
ton; D. B. Hand of Dalton; R. H.
Ely and R. T. Wall of Hawley.
About half the doctors were accom
panied by their wives.
At 10.30 a. m. President W. A.
Stevens called the meeting to order.
After routine business had been dis
posed of, Doctors John E. Bennett
of Starrucca, Wayne county, and
Frank O. Smith of Shohola, Pike
county, were unanimously elected to
membership, making a total active
membership of 32. Dr. G. T. Rod
man of Hawley was elected delegate
to the annual convention of the med
ical society of the state of Pennsyl
vania to be held at Pittsburg Oct.
3 to Oct. G.
The subject for the consideration
of the meeting was "Cancer."
'How we can help check the mor
tality from cancer," was the subject
of a very able paper by Jonathan M.
Walnwright, M. D., surgeon-ln-chlef
to the D., L, and W. railroad and
chairman of the cancer committee of i
the state medical society. A general '
discussion followed.
This meeting was part of a move
ment going on all over the state to
try to check the present very high
mortality of cancer. The paper and
discussion showed that the present
mortality Is due very largely to the
fact that a great part of the general
public hold very erroneous Ideas
concerning cancerous growths and It
Is believed that general Instruction
of the public concerning cancer will
be as useful in saviug lives as a sim
ilar instruction has already proved
In the case of tuberculosis.
It was shown first of all at the
meeting that cancer is a very pre
valent disease, some four or five
thousand people dying of it every
year In Pennsylvania, and In a num
ber of districts in Pennsylvania the
death rate from cancer Is as high
as that from tuberculosis.
The most harmful Idea that Is held
by the people Is that cancer is neces
sarily a hopeless disease and that
when an Individual Is afflicted with
it, there is no use for any treatment
whatever. This idea was strongly
combated by all physicians present
and It was shown that if proper
treatment Is begun early, cancer Is
one of the most easily curable
chronic diseases that there is. It is
never a constitutional disease affect
ing the whole body, but In Its early-
stages it Is always entirely local and
confined to a few cells, and If these
diseased cells are removed surgically
the patient, in a vast majority of
cases, will be permanently cured
Of course, if the patient delays seek
ing medfcal aid, the disease will
after a time spread and finally
reach an incurable stage, and the
principal reason now why so many
people die of cancer is because they
are so prone to wait until these lat
ter incurable stages are reached. If
these people had applied to medical
men for treatment early, while their
disease was still local and entirely
curable, their lives could probably
have been saved.
In nearly all cases, cancer shows
itself In nmplo time for complete
cure. Tho ways in which it shows
itself, of course, differ in different
portions of the body. One of tho
most frequent situations of cancer
Is In the breast. The trouble here
first appears In tho form of a small,
hard lump. Any person who notices
such a lump should seek medical
advice at once, because if it Is a
cancer It Is very simple to remove
It whllo It Is still small and it will
almost surely never corao hack.
Cancer Is also common In the
stomach. Hero it shows Itself In
some form of Indigestion or dyspep
tic symptoms which aro obstinate
and do not yield to medicines. So
that anyone who hns prolonged
symptoms of indigestion should
Immediately havo their cause deter
mined without waiting until tho
troublo has become too serious to
bo relieved.
Cancer also appears sometimes on
the skin or superficial mucous mem
branes, as tho Hp. Hero It appears
as a little ulcer or wart-llke swell
ing which will not heal up.
Ono of tho most frequent sites of
cancer Is tho womb. Any bleeding,
oven If but a single or occasional
stain on the underclothing, occurlng
nfter tho menopouso or tho develop
ment of a discharge at this time, or
an alteration in tho previous long
existing discharge, is many times a
danger signal of cancer. To wait
for severe bleeding, pain, and loss
of health Is to allow tho disease to
pass tho curable stage.
In nil situations, cancer Is much
more frequent In people over forty,
so that If any of the above condi
tions appear In peoplo beyond this
age, they are especially dangerous,
' and thoy especially call for early
' treatment.
j Tho members of the medical so
ciety bellove that if people would
only learn to heed danger signals
ns Indicated that deaths from cancer
would ho comparatively rare. The
great difficulty heretofore hns been

or their
treatment, people have delayed un
til a condition, which nt first was
quite simple and easily curable, has
become too advanced for any treat-
ment whatover. No one should
have any undue dread of cancer,
provided that they recognize Its
presence and seek Immediate treat
ment. At about 1 p. m. the scientific
session gave place to the chicken
dinner which had been prepared un
der Mrs. Rodman's skilled super
vision, nnd which was served the
doctors by fantastically dressed
waiters at a long table out under
the trees near the lake. During
dinner nnd throughout the after
noon, a five-piece orchestra added to
the enjoyment of the occasion. Mr.
Henzel was on hand to photograph
the party for souvenirs. When the
last of the tempting dishes had been
disposed of, Toastmaster Brady re
quired all present to contribute their
share to the afternoon's entertain
ment. Later many further Invest!
gated the beauties of the lake by
motor launch and rowboat, and when
finally tho late afternoon brought
the day's outing to a close, all
present were agreed that never had
they had a more delightful day than
that made possible by the generous
hospitality of Dr. and Mrs. Rodman

upon tne Wayne district attorney In
a body, either. They were the three
borough editors. Lawyer Stocker
was there. The large man in the
linen suit was there. The Citizen
man was about three minutes be
hind the lawyers and the linen suit.
He got the same talk about evidence
his compatriots had Just received
from Mr. Simons.
Coroner Searles, too, could not be
gotten to talk evidence.
"My Instructions," said Dr.
Searles, "are very explicit. Mr.
Simons has the evidence. Every
scrap of It was turned over to him.
The autopsy I am going to keep se
cret and for that action I have a
good reason of my own. I could
give you boys a peach of a story,
but I am not going to do it."
Dr. Frlsbie, the coroner said, per
formed the autopsy. As the coroner
only drew JG.20, he thought he
ought not to have the autopsy Job
put on top of all the rest. He ask
ed the district attorney as the party
passed the house of Dr. Frlsbie on
the way to the hotel If he objected
t'o having the Equlnunk doctor per
form the autopsy.
"None at all," said Mr. Simons,
and thereupon the team was pulled
up at Dr. Frlsble's door and Dr.
Searles asked Dr. Frlsbie If he would
act. He said ho would.
"And I want to add," said the
coroner, "that I never In all my ex
perience havo seen a man work more
skillfully or cleverly, or use such
promptness and excellent language
In dictating notes as Frlsbie did. He
worked and talked right along and
put the whole story in good shape,
nnd it was a- treat to a doctor like
me to see the way ho handled It."
"How many pictures of the
wounds did Mr. Bodle take?" was
"He must have taken 20 or 25, I
should say, altogether. Ho follow

Is Committed Without Bail.
Mrs. Lord was arrested before the
Inquest started. Mr. Simons asked
Coroner Searles to commit tho
woman without bail, the samo way
Sam Reed had been committed 10
days earlier by Justice C. A. Kord
man, but the coroner preferred to
havo tho committal made by n local
justice and Mr. Kordman, who was
close by, was summoned and made
out tho papers.
Constablo Harford, tho olllcer who
brought Sam Reed to Jail after
catching him In n hencoop on tho
farm of Leona Lord, wns given tho
warrant and It didn't take Harford
many mlnuteB to got Leona. Tho
constable and his prisoner wero In
Honesdale about an hour after the
sheriff's speedy team landed tho
coroner, tho district attorney, tho
sheriff and tho photographer In
Sam Reed knows that Slke Lord
is dead. Ho was told that Sunday
night In Jail. The district attorney
directed the sheriff to tell Sam about
Slko's death and then lock him In
tho cell. Previously Sam hnd been
about the corridor.
"Slke Lord is dead, Sam," said
Sheriff Braman. "He died at 3
this afternoon."
Sam was considerably affected and
said he would like to see his coun
sel. Ho sees nobody else and has
not since his first day In Jail. Then
the sheriff locked Sam up.
The supposition is that William
Lord at Monday's Inquest told the
story he has told twice before about
the digging of tho ditch by Millard
Lord and Sam Reed that morning of
July 12, when words led to blow3
nud his father, Slke, got the whacks
with the hoe and the pick; that
Elizabeth Lord told about her hus
band's condition and of her caring
for him during his delirium; that
Dr. Frlsbie repeated his previous
statements as to the seven cuts on
the head of Slke, one of which, a
5-Inch gash, Is the one believed to
have been mnde by the pick in the
hands of Leona; and that Mrs. Denlo
again told about seeing Leona Lord
with the pick raised above her head
to strike, though Mrs. Denlo, accord
ing to the understanding of the case
In Honesdale, turned her face and
didn't see the pick descend. But
nothing Is certain. The dis
trict attorney knows and he will not
tell. The coroner and the sheriff
and the photographer know, and the
district attorney has told them not
to tell.
Will Try To Get Leona Lord Out.
W. H. Lee, counsel for Sam and
Leona, said this afternoon that just
as soon as Judge Searle gets back
from Montrose, where he went Mon
day to hold court, an effort will
be made to get the woman out of
jail on a writ of habeas corpus.
"We will try to get her admitted
to bail or discharged," said Mr. Lee.
"Slke was looking for a fight and he
got it."
Sam Reed, Mr. Lee said, Is bearing
up pretty well in jail and his health
is good.
Mlllnrd Says Tyner Tipped Off Siko.
Millard Lord called at the Citizen
office this afternoon to say that the
presence of Slke and William on his
mother's land was premeditated.
Oakley Tyner, he said, had all along
agreed to telephone Slke and his
son as soon as the digging of the
ditch began, and this Tyner did on
the day of the fight. He says, too,
that Ethel Lord said to her brother,
"Will, don't strike him first."
