"It looks a little "boogerlsh" along
here. I guess I'll get my whlpj
handy," remarked Charles K. Schoon
over of this place to his wife, as they
were driving along the road from
Hawley to White Mills on Wednes
day evening between 7 and 8 o'clock,
homeward bound from a business trip
to Hawley and other towns.
Hardly had the words escaped him
-when two strnnge men jumped out
of the bushes, and attempted to
grab the horse's head. With rare
presence of mind Mr. Schoonover
struck the animal a crushing blow,
and the livery horse, unused to such
treatment, leaped in the air and dash
ed away at breakneck speed, soon
outdistancing his pursuers, and car
rying the occupants of the rig to
Mrs. Schoonover, when seen Thurs
day afternoon by n Citizen represen
tative stated that she was badly
frightened when the men appeared,
but that It all happened so suddenly,
she hardly realized what was going
on, until It was all over. Mr. Schoon
over, who Is a commercial traveller,
In the employ of his son, W. J.
Schoonover, who has an "office In
Scranton, and handles plate glass,
was out of town when the reporter
called. His wife seemed quite upset
from the effects of the shock of the
attempted holdup on the night pre
vious. The stretch of road leading from I
Hawley to White Mills is an ex
ceedingly lonely one, and it is a great
wonder that not more attempts have
been made in the past to rob people
along this highway.
Passing automobiles help to dis
tract thieves in the summer time, but
with the approach of fall, most of
the city boarders have returned home
and motor cars are few and far be
tween. The case most likely will be report

The goosebone prophet nnd the
long-distance weather service of the
Washington Weather Bureau appear
to have been entirely outdistanced

DAY, NOV. 8.
H. C. Jackson has made a tour
through the northern tier of town
ships In our county, and is now go
ing through tho southern end. Our
reports from correspondents and oth
ers are very encouraging as there
seems to bo a general gift away from
party lines on the legislative ticket
and Democrats and Republicans are
out for Jackson and Home Rule.
They all consider Jackson a man
whom they can depend on. As a
farmer he has been active in agri
cultural matters, giving his aid and
advice towards the betterment of
those engaged in agricultural pur
suits. As a citizen ho has been
broad-minded, consclencious in his
every duty to neighbor and fellow
citizen. All who know him testify to
his loyalty to right doing, and up
Wayne county voters are fast
awakening to the fact that if they
want to get laws enacted that will
benefit tliem, they must elect a man
who belongs to the dominant party,
one who can enter their counsels and
demand from men of his own party
the rights and privileges which his
constituents need. Wayno countv
has been represented by a member of
the minority party for a number of
years and the result has been we have
received no attention whatever from
the state authorities except receiving
such appropriations that wo are en
titled to under the general laws and
which would come to us without any
appeal from our representative. Tho
state has appropriated ?5,000 to
wards a hospital evory session since
i8U2, r . P. Kimble of Honesdale hav
ing obtained the first appropriation.
and now that the people of Wayno
county have undertaken to claim this
G,000 by fulfllling their part of tho
agreement, we want a Republican at
iiarrisuurg who by reason of his be
longing to the power in control can
secure a larger appropriation and
also sullicient appropriations to help
maintain the hospital.

The Republican candidate for Con
gress from this district, C. C. Pratt,
has served a part of one term. He
was elected In November, 1908, over
his competitor, George W. Kipp, by
a majority of over 2,000, carrying all
four counties. He has proved to be
a honest, faithful, upright represen
taive. Although It was his first term
in Congress ho was appointed on the
important commute on Agriculture
and his labor In behalf of the farm
ers and their interests has won for
him the commendation of the farm
ing community. In looking after the
interests of the farmer, he did not
neglect the interests of the working
men in his districts, for it was
through his Indefatigable efforts that
tho schedule on glass and cut glass
especially, was maintained so as to
protect tho wages of glass blowers
and glass cutters of the land. He
was one of the men who fought
against the strong lobby which the
glassware Importers had at Wash
ington, and It is due to the able ef
forts of Congressman Pratt that the

The many friends of ex-Congressman,
Hon. George W. Kipp were
shocked to learn of the death, Wed
nesday, at Clifton Springs, of Mrs.
Kipp. Mrs. Kipp Is very well known
here, and her husband who is a na
tive of this county, and a candidate
for reelection to Congress on the Dem
ocratlc-Keystone ticket, has the deep
sympathy in his sore affliction of a
wide circle of friends In Northeastern
Pennsylvania. Mrs. Kipp, who was
a lady of rare culture and refinement,
had been undergoing treatment at
Clifton Springs for some time. Mr.
Kipp, who resides at Towanda was
Congressman from 1900-1908.

Special to The Citizen.
Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 19. State
Treasurer Charles F. Wright, of Sus

was questioned on the ground that
