old, daughter of Mrs. Henrietta
Mabel, eight-year-old daughter ot
"And there is a case under ob
servation now on Mnin street," con

doubt is typhoid. The patient has
headaches and high temperature."
There are now 14 typhoid cases In
Three Water Samples Heported Had.
Sixteen samples of Honesdale wa
ter, taken from the ponds as well as
from wells and springs used to sup
ply drinking water to the borough,
were sent to the state chemist to be
analyzed. Reports have been re
ceived by Dr. Ely on Ave samples of
well water and five samples of tap
."Out of the 10, two wells and
one tap go wrong," said Dr. Ely.
"The tap Is the one located at the
D. & H. depot. We have not heard
yet from Cajaw, First and Bunnell's
pond or from the cemetery spring or
Kelsch's well. We may get some
thing within a few days."
Tho Vicinious well, from which
the Everlings drank and from whose
water Elizabeth Everllng, who died
a fortnight ago, Is believed to have
received her infection, was con
demned this afternoon by N. B.

Sensible people will take the coun
ty medical Inspector's advice and
commence at once to boll their en

by killing whatever typhoid germs
exist and reducing to a minimum the
chance of getting the fever.
Fourteen of the 15 typhoid cases
thus far reported in Honesdale aro
being treated here. Edith Hartung
was taken to a Scranton hospital a
little more than a week ago. She
is doing nicely.
Dr. Ely called on Supt. McMullen
of the Water company today and
told him the result of the water
analyses so far as he has received
them. He told the superintendent
that in his judgment an ounce of
prevention Is a whole lot better than
a pound of cure and that tho boiling
of all drinking water was the safest
course to pursue. Mr. McMullen
agreed with him.
To Prosecute- Health Hoards.
Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, state health
commissioner, has issued a state
ment from Harrisburg to the effect
that all boards of health that are
not enforcing the laws of tho state
in regard to their duties will be re

13 believed the order of the state
health commissioner may be the
keynote of a crusade against the lax
methods employed by many boards
of health. The order is believed to
have been brought about by tho re

scene, who are said to be greatly dis
satisfied with conditions in many
Laxity on the part of health offi
cials has been evident for years in
smaller towns and in at least one

found that in several smaller towns

communities must immediately or

LAHGH CONGREGATION IN PRKS
BVTEIUAN EDIFICE HEARS
COMPREHENSIVE TALKS BY
JUDGE SEARLE, LAWYER
GREENE AND NATIONAL VICE
PRESIDENT LOVELY OF BOOT
AND SHOE WORKERS UNION.
The union service in the Presby
terian church Sunday night had an
overflowing congregation and three
interesting speakers. All tho labor
bodies of Honesdale went In a solid
column to the church and sat In the
body of the house, Sonner's full or
chestra playing "Onward, Christian
Soldiers" as they entered and un
til the last man was seated.
Dr. Swift said he did not feel It
was necessary for him to tell these
men they were welcome. Ho said
tlie "men "who worlc' are"" the" hack
bone of any community. He then
introduced Judge Alonzo T. Searle.
The judge talked about 15 minu
tes on the dignity of work. He
said the shiftless and Idle man is a
nuisance and a drag on the com
munity, and that tho boy or girl who
never has known what it is to work
for a living Is in no way fitted to
be the useful man or woman of to
morrow. He urged the need of am
bition, enthuslam, energy, punctu
ality and patience as forces that
enable a man to work to the best
Homer Greene, the next speaker,
talked entertainingly of the strength
the worklngmen may exert for clean
politics. He told them that they
have the power to send the right
men to Washington to make laws
for the nation and to Harrisburg
to make laws for the state, and
they have the power, too, to de
mand the enforcement of good
laws and the repeal of bad laws.
He said the subject of temperance
was a subject on dangerous ground,
but that tho habit of getting drunk
wns a harmful practice for work
lngmen and everybody else. He
also said the workingman ought to
know how ho stands with reference
to the church, for the church is
the force for good In the commun
Ity and the champion of pure and
wholesome, ideals in living. Mr
Greene denied that the church is
fdr the rich man and that church
people look down on the poor and
The last and longest talker was
Vice-president Thomas P. Lovely of
tho National Boot and Shoe Work
ers' union, who is a ready and
forcible speaKfer and a man with
considerable humor. He defended
unions on tho ground that their
members have to buy everything
food, clothes, fuel, transportation
and even professional services
from men who are organized them
selves. He, said the doctors have a
fee table that is practically a scale,
and so have tho lawyers. The doc
tors charge more for work at night,
and that is overtime. (Laughter.)
Mr. Lovely told how worklngmen
have been forced to organize to de
fend themselves, and he declared a
man who gets ?2 a day never will
be a $2,50 a day customer. The
big shoe strike in Marlboro, Mass.,
be said resulted In the destruction
of the union, but the business of
Marlboro, up to the strike time a
fine, busy city of 1C.000, was de
stroyed with It.

Agriculture is added to the studies recommended for the
elementary branches of the public schools of Pennsylvania,
according to an official circular iust nreoared hv TCpv F)r
N. C. Schaeffer, superintendent of the state department of
The new course, which is optional with the schools, but
is highly recommended by the department, is as follows:
Agriculture, arithmetic, civics, drawing, English, geogra-
phy, history, manual arts, moral education, physiology and
J he department recommends agriculture not only for the
rural schools, but especially for the city children, who are
declared to be ignorant of the phases of life on the farm
which were familiar to their fathers. Atrricultum is rh-
clared to be the fundamental industry of America, and it is
asserted that a wider knowledge of its essentials would in-
crease the trend of population toward the independent life
of the country and increase the production by improved
methods so as to reduce the cost of living to the people
Among the reasons assigned for the new departure of a
course in agriculture in the elementary public schools of
Pennsylvania, the department of public instruction has this
"The importance of this new subject is no longer disputed.
It is needed in the rural school to arouse and retain an in-
terest in the home environment, and to render a service in
perfecting and making more common the methods now
known and used by the few, and it is nccdssary to enlist an
army of recruits in' the most fundamental industry in Am-
erica. High cost of living can be jjeduqe'd by a'niorje inten-
sive production and by the removal from the dependent
town and city life to the more independent and self-sup-
porting country life of many who1' areunfamiliar Vitj) its

MAKES HANDSOME 1'UOFIT.
Labor day was all right weather
wise. The sun at midday got up to
87, but It was fairly cool on the hill
and the crowds thnt thronged Belle
vue park didn't growl. The park
was full of strollers and dancers and
general pleasureseekers from noon
to midnight, when the dancing, for
which Sonner's orchestra played,
came to an end.
The parade started at 10.45.
There were probably 700 men in
line. Tho Flint Glassworkers turn
ed out 400 In white caps and Ameri
can flags, and the Shoemakers, who
have 94 now in town, hau '90 men
i In line. The American Federation
I of Labor had 60.
The floats were beautiful and
unique in design and elicited a great
deal of praise for their designers.
The glass float carried a miniature
glass shop, and Bert Daln, Sr., was
"the man behind the frame." On the
Shoemakers' float, which had the
sign io more tuuwu iuuuy in
hold red letters, there was
a realls -
tic cell with the convict peering
through the bars. Louis Myers was
the prisoner and Frank Ashby was
the guard. Mr. Cooney was the very
capable clown. The Federation float
did good servlco by transporting the
three oldest members Michael
Weaver, John Fisher and Tom Whlt
taker. The boys on board were
