THE STRENGTH OF GAYNOR, We note nearly every day by news dispatches from New York that May or WILLIAM J. GAYNOR, now on tho high road to old-time pugnacity and vigor after his recent business contact with a sore-headed ex-doclc employe's bullet, is willing, probably anxious, to take the Democratic nom ination for governor of tho state of -which he today stands boldly forth as the most picturesque and proinl nent figure save, of course, the al ways picturesque and always promi nent personality of THEODORE ROOSEVELT. We are not surprls ed by the New York Mayor's tacit admission that he Is ready to try It. We have believed from the time he commenced to cause his friends to say that Mayor GAYNOR thought he had nothing to gain by a term at Albany that he would ultimately come out as a receptive if not as an actually solicitous and aggressive as pirant for the Democratic nomination for tho governorship that he would make it appear in the long run that the progressive element of the York state Democracy, if there really be such a thing, had forced him to make the race in a year which Dnds the Democrats with one admittedly pow erful candidate and the Republicans in possession of no man who quite measures up to tho unusual standard of Gov. HUGHES. It cannot be denied without the boldest and most bullheaded kind of partisan lying that WILLIAM J GAYNOR would make an exceptional ly formidable gubernatorial candidate for the New York Democrats to top their ticket with at the Saratoga con vention. He is far and away the most respectable and even command ing figure the Democrats on the other side of the Delaware have been able to produce since the halcyon days of GROVER CLEVELAND. He is a Mayor with an axo for useless and cumbersome municipal commissions that gave ignorant, incompetent Tam many suckers fat berths at $2000 to $7000 a year and no work at all to render in return for this very com fortable compensation; and ho has been a Mayor with a crushing club for police graft the hitherto un squelchablo obstaclo in the path of the city's progress. He won thous ands of New York hearts by declar Ing, the day he went to City Hall to be sworn, that tho people of New York wanted a reasonably wide open Coney Island on Sundays and that ho would give them the kind of a police commissioner needed to open Coney and keep her open. He has, beyond all question, made himself almost immeasureably stronger with tho hero-worship crowd a sickening but at the same time a not Incon siderable olement In all parties by his plucky fight with death after that shooting moss on board ship at Ho boken. If Mayor GAYNOR is ever to be strong enough to make the At bany race ho is strong enough to make it today. But thoro Is opposition of one very forcible, even if contemptible kind to the Albany hopes which must, If successful, lead not only to Washt lngton hopes but to Washington expectations of the New York May or. Ho will bo knifed to tho burning day by HEARST and the HEARST newspapers, a crew to be counted bo low tho Harlem. Though tho Inde pendence League Is deader than doornail, there aro Independence League men In whoso breasts thoro Btlll rankles tho hatred of GAYNOR that found birth when GAYNOR, on tho threshold of his campaign, pub licly gave tho Ho to HEARST and received it In return, and which was intensified by tho Mayor's terrific at tacks upon tho personal probity of HEARST at the time tho COLAHAN public works payment scandal receiv ed such thorough newspaper ventila tion. Theso men can .probably cast from 70,000 to 100,000 votes for In whose nomination pie tho yellow o'urnallst of New York and Chicago j and St. Louis and San FranclBco shall have had a finger. i Wo think, on tho wholo, that the opposition of the HEARST element will hurt GAYNOR In his necessary effort to get 100,000 majority below the Harlem with which to offset tho Republican figures from up-stato more than tho presence of THEO DORE ROOSEVELT in tho party councils or on tho stump during a campaign that Is to fairly snap and bristle with the real ROOSEVELT brand of strenuoslty. Thus fnr It is not plain that tho Republican nomi nee for governor Is to bo a man of ROOSEVELT Ideas or ROOSEVELT choosing. We admit that ho could not If ho tried pick out a man cap able of putting more personal color Into a campaign than GAYNOR may absolutely be depended upon to put Into this one. ROOSEVELT on tho stump will be a booster for the Re publican cnndidate.-.biU tho popular ity of tho candidate spellbinders is not always the greatest vote-coiner in New York status Our Impression Is that candidate GAYNOR, though running better up-state than . any Democrat has run since GROVER CLEVELAND'S dny, would get his most disastrous cut in New York county aud to somo extent in his home county of Kings; and that his defeat for Albany w.ohW. Imperatively demand the -nomination of Gov. HARMON of Ohio fur Washington in 1912. .:;!iaci The effort for a hospital for Honesdale is based on the 3trong undeniable appeal of humanity. Such an institution has long been Imperatively demanded by the medi cal and surgical needs of Honesdale and tho more accessible parts of Wayne county. ScrantOn Is too long and trying a ride for a sick man or woman, particularly ono who faces the ordeal of an operation. The Honesdale hospital agitation is not new, but tho cause is one that urges itself with little verbal exploitation The meeting of Honesdale women at the Lyric Wednesday afternoon should be attended by every, woman who wishes to bo helpful to suffer ing neighbors. With the organized aid of the large-hearted, charitable women of Honesdale the project can be put through. A wealthy New Jersey woman who died recently left $1,000,000 to Tus kegee institute. Money could not be better expended. The Institute has done an enormous amount of good In raising the standard of the South ern negro and helping solve the race problem. Its work, by the way, should be particularly appreciated In New Jersey, which has more black people in proportion to population than any other Northern state. The negro Is getting to be a distinct nuisance In a great many South Jersey towns, and If the coming 1m portations of colored population from below Mason and Dixon's line can be made to consist of men and wom en tolerably well educated before they leave tho "Solid South" for a North ern home, New Jersey will emphatl cally he the gainer. OLD FOLKS DAY IS GOOD. Pen Argyl is to hold an Old Folks day yearly. The recent celebration was a success, and all who assisted are to be complimented on the suc cess of the gathering and on the spirit which has prompted such an honor to old folks, runs a news Item. This is a first-rate Idea, and we trust the Old Folks day in Penu Argyl, ono of the most Interesting and comfortable little spots on the whole map of Pennsylvania, may be an annual feature rewarded from the outset with the kind of results that are pleaded for by Its promoters. An annual Old Homo week In so small a place would, It Is clear, bo quite superfluous; but tho Old Folks day a time set apart for proper rec ognition of tho community valuo, both past and present, of tho aged people of tho town 1b a practical as well as a benevolent movement. In theso hurly burly days of selllsh, cut throat competition, when oven tho cleanest and most decently-lnten-tloncd of people aro forced to resort to dog-oat-dog methods of doing business In order to nchlovo a live lihood, there Is too little attention paid to tho older folks who not only havo borno tho heat and burden of their day but who perchance may be able to drop a valuable word of suggestion and advice to tho younger blood, so prono to know it all. Thero aro men and women of 70 In ovory community that knew as much at 40 as somo of tho men and women now arrived at that ago know today, and who havo picked up an idea or two worth while since they loft' 40 behind. Decent consideration for tho old has something moro tanglblo than sentiment to commend It. Tho old men will bo good for counsel bo long as tho young inon aro good for war.

GINGERSNAPS. Fashionably speaking, tho summer lid has but a day to linger. Discipline seems to do the most good to tho ono who administers It. Wherever they go, It goes without saying that some people always make a go of It. Clubs save a lot of money for a man by his belonging to them with out being married. A man who can be good-natured at breakfast la very likely to go to heaven when ho dies. When a man will go to the thea tre with his family it's tho kind of show where he doesn't want to sit in the front row. , No matter how easy It Is for a man to make money, there always seems to bo somebody else for whom It is easier to get it nwny from him.

West Chester Local Nows. Not seldom havo dogs moro affec tion and nttentlon showered upon them than babies have. Somo time ago a woman in ono of our Inland towns lost a pot dog by death. Her grief was Indescribable. Tho dog had a most elaborate funeral, lying in state and burled in a favorlto spot In tho garden. Tho services of a band wore sought to play fu neral dirges, but the members balk ed at playing 'over a dead dog. More recently a wealthy mnu paid a great price for a special car In which ho might travel with hla dog from ouc side of the continent to the other. It Is to bo hoped tho dog appreciated tho favor. Perhaps In both cases tho dogs were moro worthy ns dogs than their owners were as human beings.

The other day a man In this town who plays ball and who has a great many friends stepped up to mo and said: "Bert, if they ever get mo up before tho 'Squire for anything don't put my right name in what you write. I have a family and a job. I want to stand well In tho community. I want no newspaper limelight, but you must make somo sort of a story out of the affair and you may print my name as Albert Brooks. I told him that would be putting him too close to the watei aud as sured him the use of his right name would be preferable. Ho said I was right, after all. Herbert E, Bassett. NOT A GOOD F1UEX1). Loyalty to his friends does not1 ap pear to have been one of the virtues of William H. Berry, any moro than was loyalty to his political organiza tion. Back in the years when he was state treasurer of Pennsylvania Mr. Berry had a political loan from Col. James M. Guffey. That is, It may be called a political loan, be cause the two politicians were then friends and the security given for the money was so slight as hardly to be worth consideration. At a rorceu sale In Pittsburg the other day the twenty-seven hundred shares of Berry Construction company stocK, given to secure tho $15,000 loan from Mr. Guffey, brought only $700. Mr. Guffey had carried this note of Mr. Berry's and placed It In the bank only when It became necessary In tho conduct of his business. When Mr. Guffey made an assign ment the bank proceeded to sell the Berry securities and they brought a little less than five per cent, or the face valuo of the note. Granted that It was a business proposition and that some time Mr. Borry would have made good his obligation, thero re mains his treatment of a menu, which will be of Interest to all vo ters In tho stato of Pennsylvania. Mr. Berry esteemed the favor and the friendship of Mr. Guffey when it was useful to him. But afterward ho was willing to deuounce and re nounce tho Pittsburg Democratic boss, forgetful of favors and assist ance In his time of need. Frleud shln that endures and is bounded by honesty, consideration, character and forgiveness Is a very heautmu tiling, But friendship of tho kind which Mr Berry displayed in his relations with Mr. Guffey must exclto tho disgust and tho antipathy of all honorable men. It will bo ono of tho consid erations In tho voting next Novem ber. If Mr. Berry has any explana tion of this transaction with Mr. Guf fey It will bo pleasing to tho voters of this section to hear what ho may havo to say. Editorial -in Tltusvillo Horald.

Good Way to Use Hyomei for Catarrh Besides breathing through the In haler a few times a day, many ca tarrh sufferers write that they find Inhnllng HYOMEI (pronounce it High-o-mo) from a bowl of steaming water each night before retiring a great aid In curing stubborn cases. Try It; it's very simple; gives quick relief and makes you beratho easier. Fill a bowl-half full of boiling wa ter; pour Into the water a tea spoonful of HYOMEI, cover head and bowl with a towl, and breatho through nose and mouth tho pleas ant, medicated, antiseptic and heal ing vapor that arises. This method relieves that stuffiness at once, and makes your head feel fine. You can get a bottle of HYOMEI at druggists everywhere or at G. W. Pell's for only 50 cents. Ask for extra bottle HYOMEI Inhalent. But bear In mind that a HYOMEI outfit which Includes inhaler and bottle of HYOMEI costs $1.00. But, as stated before, If you al ready own an Inhaler, a bottle of HYOMEI costs but 50 cents. HYOMEI Is guaranteed by G. W.
