professional man, most Impressed
by the feasibility of the idea, Is
somebody to take hold of the move
ment as an organizer. The right
man, this informant stated, has not
yet been found. In Scranton, Har
risburg, Altoona and other Pennsyl
vania cities the Scouts are in good
shape, both numerically and fi
nancially, and are accomplishing a
practical work by Increasing the
number of boys willing to cut out
cigarettes, cheap novels, smutty
talk and low associates as the es

It is expected that by cool wejither
a suitable man will have been found
nnd that then the training of the
lads will be started in good earnest.
A non-union glasscutter from
tho Herbeck-Demer shops was jeer
ed and hissed and called a scab by
about 100 men as he crossed the
Sixth street bridge Tuesday night
Just before G o'clock. Policeman
Canavan, who was sent for, cama In
citizen's clothes and quieted the
crowd. County Detective Spencer
was also a peacemaker. Late that
night, not far from the German
Catholic church, tho same man, this
time on his way from tho Lyric,
where he had witnessed "Home
Ties," was hissed and called a scab
and addressed by other opprobrious1
names. George Wolfe, who was
with hlni, reached for a gun and
fired two shots In tho air. Police
man Canavan, who had been follow
ing the party of 30 or 40 men, now
came up and dispersed tho erowd
that was annoying tho two men.
Afterward ho took Wolfo and his
wife up Main street to Policeman
DeGroat's post, and the latter es

Thoughtful men, alive to tho
sharp problem of keeping tho young
folks on tho farm from drifting to,
the city and also wise to tho neces
sity of teaching farming as a sci
ence, hope tho agricultural course
decided on by tho school board last
year may speedily bo put In opera
tion. Ono of them, a leading law
yer of Wayno county, said Wednes
day that Pennsylvania farmers
could ralso apples as good as thoso
raised by tho farmors of Oregon, tho
best paid orchardlsts In tho world,
If tho apple meu of tho Koystono
stato had tho benefit of tho samo
scientific applo training and know
how to combat tho worms that chow
tho fruit to pieces and cut tho crop
In two by their depredations. Ho
added that somo of tho youngsters
think a farming course is designed
to romodol them Into countrymen,
but this unfortunate fallacy of tho
Juveniles ho felt suro can bo over
come just so Boon as the hoys and
girls boo what a fascinating study
it is to learn about soils and seeds
and tho production of crops that
ultimately feed the local population.
The farming course has mado good
in a number of cities thnt have tried
It. Most level-headed parents with
whom wo havo discussed Us practi
cability confess they would like to
seo it tried out In Honesdale. ...

A DHN'IAL FROM MR. Kll'l
As tho editor of tho Bradford Ar
gus tins seen fit to mnko a personal
attack on me ns a candidate for
member of Congress, nnd has accus
ed mo of statements I never made,
I tnko this way to deny his false
charges and have asked him to print
my reply In the Argus.
In tho first place I nover told him
thnt I had left tho Democratic party,
nor have I stated to Editor Parsons
that I would not vote for any Demo
crat. I havo always tried to sup
port fit men. I havo always regard
ed tho wishes of my follow citizens
ns supremo. I have not pledged
myself to the bosses or machine,
nnd I would' rather stay at homo
than go with the understanding that
1 must vote for any party measure
without regard to how that meas
ure would effect the people of the
What I did say to Mr. Parsons was
thnt I would not support the candi
dates at the Allentown convention.
I havo no faith In party Juggling nor
party prostitution, and In stato af
fairs I Intend to support such men
as have proved themselves honest In
office and effective In working for
To my mind a good Democrat
cannot support the Penrose machine,
and If ho dislikes tho machine In
tho opposite party, ho has no right
to support one In his own party. In
this connection I say as earnestly
as I know how that I admire the
glorious and splendid record of Wil
liam H. Berry, who as state treas
urer smashed the combination of
graft and corruption in Harrlsburg
and compelled tho political crooks
to answer at the bar of Justice.
I am sorry that tho Allentown
convention did not rise to the op
portunity on nominating Mr. Berry
for governor. In all my political
career I have been opposed by the
Republican machine, and now It is
strange to find a so-called Democrat
ic paper using the ammunition of
tho Republican machine and oppos
ing me, without a doubt because I
am not the kind of a Democrat that
Cannon and Penrose would like to
This is my pledge to the people,
Republicans and Democrats, If elect
ed I will constantly support all
measures that will benefit the peo
ple of the district, I will oppose all
measures that are detrimental to
progresslveness, and I will oppose
Cannon and all that Cannonism rep
resents. I will regard the people of the
district as the only bosses to whom
I am responsible. If this is undem
ocratic and disloyal, then I suppose
I am guilty, but I am willing to rest
my case in the hands of the peo
ple. GEO. W. KIPP.

to cast a reflection on Mr. Grim

NARROWSBURG, Sept. l.--A
carload of beer that stood on tho
switch at Narrowsburg was broken
into and a cask of beer taken out.
Considerable speculation has been
going on among the town people as
to who the perpetrators of the theft
wore, and thoso who claim to know
say that several of the most prom
inent young men In town aro Im
plicated. It appears that the carload of beer
was switched In nt Narrowsburg on
the morning in question, consigned
to George Vogt, Charles VonKlelst
and C. G. Reers. During the day
Vogt and VonKlelst had taken their
beer out of the car and then sealed
Some time during the night tho
seal was broken and the cask of
beer removed, and It Is said that tho
deed was done after eleven o'clock,
which is the closing hour for all ho
tels and saloons.
Thero had been a dance In town
that evening and the young men who
are said to be implicated probably
attended the dance and, desiring
more liquid refreshments after the
I closing hour, had helped themselves,
j acting as their own bartender.
' The Erlo police department was
! notified and Officers Kelly and Johns-
ton came up from Port Jervis and
succeeded In apprehending the guilty
parties, although as yet no arrests
have been made and it Is probable
the case has been settled quietly be
cause of the prominence of the par
ties concerned. Kelly and Johnston
returned to Port Jervis.
