There Is general complaint with
the large summer resort keepers
that comparatively few city peo
ple are coming. They say that in
years the season has not been so
poor and various reasons are as
signed for the dearth, chief of which
is the automobile. They declare

ford a machine, and many who real
ly cannot, has one, and Instead of
locating at some resort the family
remains at home and week-end
trips aro taken.

Mr. Mlchels said ho thought It high
timo tho house got busy and ho seem
ed to think It would bo a good plan
to put on some pictures of men,
politicians nnd otherwise, that aro
known In this part of the state. Ho
did not seem to think It would pay
to put on the films representing the
Jeffries-Johnson fight nt Reno, which

and It Is doubtful, Mr. Mlchels said,
whether tho Honesdale crowds would
be big enough to take In tho money
required to get them bore.
