nbout 19 years old, failed to come to
her breakfast. Her sister on calling

her, but discovered an empty bottle
labelled laudanum. In the bottle
were Ave or six drops, enough to tell
It was laudanum.
Dr. M. H. Ely was called, but he
failed to awaken the girl. He gave
her antidotes hyperdermically and re
peated them In half an hour. At
the end of an hour he was able to
Miss Weiss said she took the laud
anum because she wanted to die.
Dr. Ely learned by a young woman
friend of his patient that she had
had a dispute with a young man in
Honesdale. She said that she took
the laudanum early Saturday morn

wanted to die. She was on the street

Mr. Hopkins climbed a ladder to

Mr. McCarty called on Sam at the

case again, this time in more detail
than at any of their previous Inter

back to the sheriff's office with the
keys observed that the man from

added that he wished the sheriff

By all means let us have a Great

The famous smile of President Taft "that won't come off" has been her
alded from east to west and from north to south, but when It comes to n
serious view of the nation's chief executive few words have been snld. In
the past few weeks the president has had much to do with political questions,
and that he Is Interested In what others say Is evidenced by the expression
on his face in one of the pictures. In the other view there is n look of
Berlousness as he speaks to n great crowd of his loynl citizens.

mean a big saving to the railroad

many switches along the line which

REUNION OF ROBINSONS.
Enjoys Fine Dinner and Company of,
Man From Bryan's State
Fifty-six people attended the Rob
inson family reunion at the home
of Mrs. Martin K. Kimble at the fair
grounds Tuesday. The meeting last
ed all day and there wore no dull
moments. A business session was
not necessary, for the old officers
hold over from last year and there
was no special business to be trans
acted. The dinner was served at noon and
It was a big and bountiful one. The
oldest person In the company, Uncle
John Robinson of Lebanon and Dy-
berry, Is 85 years old and reason
ably well and active for a man so
far advanced In life. John Thomp
son, the Arlington, Neb., Jeweler,
who came from his western home to
combine business and pleasure on a
trip East, was delighted with the
hospitality of the Robinson reunion.
Mr. Thompson Is a Jeweler In Ar
lington. He will visit factories In
the East before going back to Ne
braska. "I didn't know before how many
relatives I had In Pennsylvania,"
said Mr. Thompson. He will visit
a number of them in Wayne county
before going back to Nebraska.
Mr. Thompson was asked by some
men he met to give his opinion of
the political outlook in the West. Ho
said Nebraska and the West regard
Col. Bryan as a man of much ability
but that people who believe ho can
get another nomination In 1912 are
few and far between.
"Mr. Bryan," said Mr. Thompson,
'is politically dead. That's the way
we feel about It out in Nebraska."
The Midnight Sons will conduct
one ot their popular dances in Lyric
hall Friday evening. Music will be

TROOPS TO FIGHT FIRES.
