Some Will Be Sent This
Week, However, For
AnalysisSixteen Sam
ples of Water Shipped
to State Chemist Two
More Typhoid Cases
On the List.
Tho examination of drinking wa
ter In Honesdale and vicinity lias
been halted, for the present at
least, and tho borough's rnllk sup
ply Is now receiving attention. No
samples of milk from tho Beech
Grove and Bothany dairies have yet
been sent away for analysis by In
spector Irwin, who was ordered to
stay here after Inspector Shaugh-
nessy was shifted to Wilkes-Barre,
but some will be sent, it is expected,
this week.
Sixteen Samples of AVntcr, All Told.
Sixteen samples of water from
Cajaw pond and elsewhere have been
sent to the State chemist at Phila
delphia for analysis. Ten went last
Thursday. The other six went Mon
day morning.
Sunday morning N. B. Spencer,
who has been working with the state
Inspectors, visited the spring on the
hill In Glen Dyberry and got a
sample of that. Several families
have been using tho water. The
spring by the toolhouse in the ceme
tery was also visited by Mr. Spen
cer, who had Supt. Miller with him,
but this one had gone completely
dry. It was a slcklooking spring.
Supt. Miller called attention to
several private sewers that go flush
Into the river opposite the ceme
tery. He says these ought to be ex
tended Into the stream, to say the
Ordered to Clenn Up Tliclr Places.
Property owners around Cajaw
pond who were ordered by Mr.
Spencer to clean up their premises
within 10 days are for the most
part complying cheerfully, though a
few of them got stuffy over tho
matter and wanted to argue.
The Most Recent TyplId Cases.
Glverth Kelsch, 12 years old, of
128 Broad street, son of William
Kelsch, and Helen Rogers, 13, a
sister of Clarence Rogers, the first
typhoid patient to die, are the lat
est cases reported. They are pati
ents of Dr. P. F. Grlffln.
Edith Hartung, 15 years old, was
taken to Scranton Stato hospital
Monday to be treated for typhoid.
Action of Water Directors.
The directors of the water com
pany held a meeting Friday after
noon and decided to extend the pipes
to First pond, which will mean
about two and one-quarter miles
moro pipe. The survey lias been
started and Supt. McMullen said
Monday that as much work as pos
sible will be done this fall, though
the whole job cannot be completed
before snow flies. Ultimately the
supply from First pond will bo
enough to keep Honesdalo in water.
Rant, Horse, liny nnd Other Proper
ty of Mrs. Boneur Destroyed.
CHERRY RIDGE, Aug. 30. The
barn of Mrs. Francis Bonear, a
widow who lives with her daughter
at this place, took lire, nobody
knows how, about 7 o'clock Satur
day night. Before the women could
send the alarm to the neighbors tho
blaze had gained a considerable
headway, and before help reached
the scene the barn was doomed. Tho
building went, and so did everything
In it.
Mrs. Bonear's 3-year-old horse,
Just broken and getting where ho was
good. for something, was lost. He
was worth $150. Mrs. Bonear lost
carriages, harness, seven tons of bay
and farm tools.
Mrs. Boi.ear said Monday that she
thought spontaneous combustion
must have started the Are. It
could not, everybody agrees, have
been an Incendiary fire, starting as
it did almost in broad daylight. The
barn was directly across the road,
say 100 feet from the house.
The barn was insured for $200.
Tho horse was not Insured. Latet
reports say tho animal was Ave
years old and worth $250.
CARBONDALE, Aug. 30. Tho
funeral of Mrs. Carolina Correll
took place from tho home of her
daughter, Mrs. H. R. Frisbio, on
Grove street Monday morning at 11
o'clock, the services being conducted
by Rev. Dr. Charles Lee, after which
tho body was taken to South Canaan
for burial. Rev. Mr. Hooper of
South Canaan conducted a Bhort ser
vice at the grave. The pallbearers
wjoro all grandchildren of Mrs. Correll.

Moral citizens agree that Supt.
Robert J. Miller of Glen Dyberry
cemetery is on the right track when
he says the use of that beautiful
spot for purposes the nature of
which can only bo intimated in a
newspaper is something that must
be stopped. He bas gotten all out
of patlenco with the antics of some
men and women that make a prac
tice of prowling through Dyberry
after 11 o'clock at night, and this
week ho asked an officer to see what
could be done toward the abatement
of this nuisance.
Mr. Miller lives next door to the
cemetery and he puts in long hours
as a general thing on his job. As a
rule he goes to bed about 11. Some
times it may be later, but ordinarily
the lights in the Miller home are out
an hour before midnight. Then tho
fun for a certain depraved class of
people gets busy.
"Tho regulars know what time I
turn In and about 11, or sometimes
a little after, they commence to
sneak across the bridge. I'm fa
miliar with that soft tiptoeing tread.
Some of them I'vo been able to scare
away. Others slide by tho house and
over tho bridge before anybody
can stop them."
Mr. Miller is not to blame for
these midnight performances in the
cemetery. He cannot work 20 hours
a day. One night not long ago, he
says, ho opened his dining room
window, which is on the cemetery
side of tho house, and caught a
young couple spooning on tho bridge.
It has been suggested that a
watchman be posted in the Miller
yard or at some other eligible vant
age point commanding a free sweep
of the bridgo, and that this watch
man bo provided with a long piece
of garden hose and the authority to
uso It, and that no particular pains
bo employed to have tho water used
for this purpose entirely disinfected
for typhoid germs.
Glen Dyberry Is one of the most
beautiful of all the places in this
land that have been set apart for
tho burial of tho dead. Midnight
callers are vandals who should bo
prosecuted. Above all things, tho
soldiers' lot should bo exempt from
their visitations. It is poBslblo that
an effort may be made to capture
and show up a few of tho ceme
tery's nocturnal visitors.
Dcuth of Mrs. Elliott.
Minnie C. Elliott, wife of Daniel
C. Elliott and daughter of Nathan
and Mary L. Perkins, died Sunday
afternoon at 4 at her home In Cherry
Ridge of pulmonary tuberculosis.
She was 43 years old and a lifelong
resident of Cherry Ridge. Tho fun
eral will take placo Wednesday from
the house and tho body will be laid
to rest In Darling cemetery.

DALE. The most important topic of con
versation at the executive session at
the Greater Honesdalc Board of

Honesdalo and vicinity today and the
kind the Board of Trade recommend
ed being built.

WHITE MILLS, Aug. 30. Man
ager Thomas Gill of the White Mills
baseball team says White Mills will
get the $50 offered the winning
team in the game that was played
with Archbald at Lake Lodore the
day of the Heptasoph's picnic. Tho
date was Aug. 17.
That game broke up in a row.
For seven innings nobody scored.
Then, with a man on, first and a
mail, on third, Catcher Shaffer, the
Jieavy hitter of the Millers, put tho
ball away out in right and two
runs came' In. Shaffer was called
safe at third, and then Umpire
McDonald changed his decision,
swore right up and down the ball
was foul, and refused to record the
two runs claimed by White Mills
and which had been sent across the
plate on Shaffer's hit. There was a
wordy wrangle and White Mills left
the .field.
The $50 has been hung up ever
since. At first It was proposed to
divide it. White Mills wouldn't
stand for any division.
"It's nil or none," said the man
behind the Millers.
"Tho commltteo on sports meets
Sept. C In Scranton," said Mr. Gill
Monday, "and at that meeting our
umpire, Mr. Lllliquist, who did not
butt in nt all In tho row over tho de
cision at tho lake, will file a sworn
statement to controvert whatever
the other umplro may have to say.
Yes, we expect to get the $50. It's

No Question Now as to
Which Place Has The
Stronger Ball Team-
Rousing Defeat Admin
istered to Carbondale
Sunday Demonstrated
Honesdale won the fifth and de
cisive game of the Carbondale scries
at Lake Lodore Sunday and won it
fairly. There Is no question, either
in Carbondale or here, as to Jthat.
The Maplo City lads outbatted and
outflelded their doughty rivals from
the other side of the Mooslcs. The
game was won before three Innings
had been played, for Pitcher Mc
Andrew was a regular pudding for
the Honesdalo hitters. They found
him whenever they felt like It, and
after three Innings the Carbondalo
twlrler, who once used to bother
our boys a bit, went off the Job.
Neary followed him In the box and
did better, but the last Carbondalo
chance had faded off the map before
Neary's time.
On the other hand, Honesdale was
sound in the box from start to fin
ish. Sweet-tempered little Bennle
Hessllng, tho able runt of a pitcher
who always goes into tho game with
a rainbow smile and comes out of
it, whatever the result, with the
colors simply augmented and in
tensified, pitched one of his strong
est and most "heady" games. Ho
struck out 12 men altogether; and
in the seventh, when Carbondale did
actually succeed In getting two men
on bases' Jennie fanned two
lived to see the third victim send a
pop foul, a nice little dewdrop, right
into the hospitable mlt of Catcher
Sandercock, who holds his pitcher
nicely and whoso work behind the
bat was the real, simon pure article
Close to 2,000 people saw the
game. There were US on the reg-
iular 11.05 out of Honesdale In
tne morning, and for the special at
- ' .
1 Ticket Agent Transue let Capt.
Kupfer arid his boys have 580. Out
of that cluster very few tickets
were returned. Tho special had
eight cars, while the special from
Carbondale showed up at 2.05 with
14 cars and more than 800 men,
women and children to root for
"Nick" MurtaugTTs pets.
Honesdale got an elegant start.
Mangan, the first man to shake a
stick at McAndrew, liked the first
ball and hit it. He got it right and
the sphere shot well out Into right
ana jIangan took two bases as easy
as eating lemon pie with vanlla
cream on the side. Brader singled
and stole second and then Capt.
Kupfer came to bat. The Captain
had on his batting clothes and ho
put the second ball off toward tho
lake somewhere. He sent Mangan
and Brader home and got to tllrd
himself by beautiful sprinting, but,
though tho boss of the Honesdale
team had both homraels planted
squarely on the bag a full second
before the ball landed at Murray's
placo of business, Umpire "Mike"
Burke called the runner out.
"Punk," yelled the Honesdalo
side of tho field. It was a rotten
decision, and ns the game progressed
the man with tho Indicator stirred
Heaven and earth In his effort to
get Carbondale homo on top, but
oven the strenuous efforts of a loyal
umpire couldn't do the trick at Lake
Lodore Sunday. It was Honesdale's
day to get there. It was Carbon
dale's day to loso.
In the fourth Neary took the
box and McAndrew went out In tho
field, and the new pitcher gave the
Carbondale outfit a new though
insufficient lease of life. Neary
struck out threo men and gave two
freo passes to tho initial bag. Hess
ling was not so generous. Ho only
handed out one. It Is true that all
through this season tho little Hones
dale twirler has been throwing high
and he sent a good many of them
high Sunday, but his old-tlme speed
was thore.
"Bonnlo pitched the game of his
life," said both tho Carbondalo box
men. They know a good thing
when they seo it.
For Honesdale Hattlor, Brader,
Kupfer, Murray and Mangan were
the hitters. Brader made three of
Honesdale's seven runs and the
others found McAndrew for two
baggers. Carbondale's runs were
made by Neary and Williams.
Neary scored tho Carbondale short
stop on one of his two-base hits.
Carbondalo fielded loosely and
there wero fumbles galore on her
side of the fence. Carbondalo made
eight errors. Honesdalo mado two.
"We did tho best wo could, nnd
if we'd had another pitcher from
the first wo might havo won," said
Manager Murtaugh.
"It was a good gamo and I think
