The Men's society of the St.
John's German Evangelical Lutheran
church met Tuesday evening. On
Thursday evening, the Young Peo
ple's society of the same church met,
and elected delegates to tne nan
convention of the Northeastern Dis
trict of the Luther League of Amer
ica which will be held In St. Paul's
church, North Scranton, the early
part of November. It may be of in
terest to the many Honeadale
Leaguers to know that at the state
convention of the Luther League held
at Meyersdale, Pa., this week, P.
Walter Banker, of Wllkes-Barre,
president of this district, and well
known here, was elected State Presi
dent. The Edsall case had a sudden
ending at court on Monday when the
defendant, who was out on ball, was
called. He failed to appear and his
father, who was bondsman, stepped
up to the rail and placed down $300
cash which was the amount of the
bail bond. Attempts were made by
parties representing the defendants
to settle this case by paying for all
the goods which had been stolen but
the prosecutor determined to see the
case through andjuace the defendant
so ho could no longer pay nightly
visits to barns and hen coops. In some
localities there are people who believe
and act the belief that chicken steal
ing is not a crime. The indlctnlent
against Edsall still remains and he
will bo arrested on sight and the next
time bail might not be accepted.
The Democratic papers are ex
ploiting tho news that Horace G.
Young, well known In Honesdale,
has renounced Republicanism and
joined the Democracy. We think this
statement Is slightly warped and
twisted. Mr. Young has no doubt
come out for John A. Dix, tho Demo
cratic cand'date for governor In New
York state, and his reason, no doubt,
is due' to the fact that he la opposed
to the bulldozing tactics of Roose
velt In bossing the New York state
convention, Mr. Young, like a great
many of the business men of the
country, who have had experience In
the financial world know that the
success of Rooseveltlsm In polltlca
will have the same effect upon busl
neaa Interests as a bull would have
In a China shop. When frlenzled
politics lias resumed its normal con
ditions Mr. Young, we think, will be
found In the ranks of tho G. O. P.

lng Job for tho O. & W. R. R.
Gcorgo Simpson, of Wlnwood,
stated that ho saw the gray mare and
that It had a very soro back. As a
cavalryman with threo years' Civil
war experience, he knew quite a lit
tle about horses.
The defense then opened its case,
tho first witness called being James
Manlcy, the defendant, who said ho
was employed by Mr. Harding to
watch tho men and horses. Harding
was over him on tho Job, nnd Mnnley
had about 25 men under him. Card
worked quarter of a mile from the
defendant who frequently visited.
On Juno 18 Constnblo Sherwood camo
along nnd talked with him. "I havo
a warrant for you," he said, and or
dered tho horse put In a barn. At
the 'Squire's. tho defendnnt pleaded
not guilty, but wns refused Mr. Hard
ing ns bondsman, and gave the
'Squiro $10 and his watch. The fine
he paid under protest. Later tho con
stable came with another warrant and
threatened to take him to Honesdale
If ho didn't pay the $30 flno. Mc
Claln went his ball. Mr. Harding
had all authority as foreman. The
horso's back "looked like a bile came
on." It was healing on Juno 24th.
The doctor gave him a certificate and
tho horse has worked ever since.
Hnrdlng paid tho drivers.
On cross-examination he admitted
boarding with Decker, and keeping
the maro In his stable. Ho helped
to doctor the horse. His father paid
Decker. He did not plead guilty be
fore tho 'squire.
Morris Harding, general foreman
of construction work on tho O. & W.
railroad between Poyntelle nnd the
river, stated the O. & W. hired
horses from the defendant's father
and that he as foreman had general
charge of tho work. Ho observed
the sore on the mare's back. In tho
work the saddle couldn't touch It. A
silver quarter would cover tho sore.
On cross-examination he said the
wound was only skin deep.
Frank Cornell, of Wlnwood, testi
fied to working on tho O. & W. rail
road grading job under the direc
tion of Card, and that he was the
driver of the gray mare. In his
opinion the sore was caused by a
boll. He spoke of 'treating the sore
with balsam of myrrh.
Dr. H. A. Paget, a veterinary, of
Scranton, with a practice of 22 years,
told of being called to see tho horse
June 26th. He found a sore caused
by an abrasion of the skin which was
made worse by the application of
balsam of myrrh. He prescribed a
mild astringent lotion for the wound.
In his opinion the sore could cause
absolutely no pain unless touched
by some part of the harness. The
sore was healing when he was sum
moned. John Mauler, of Wlnton borough,
testified to furnishing horses for the
O. & W. railroad. Ho saw the gray
mare. To him It looked as If It was
stung by something.
M. J. Barrett, of Jessup, a dealer
In horses for twenty years, testified
to seeing the sore. No part of the
saddle touched the sore.

seeing a small sore, In the process of
healing, on the wethers of the mare.
The horse didn't squirm when he
touched her.

wero fixed on each side, and the har
ness removed.

In Idaho.

which In reality has eight gables.

Tho report of the committee on
standardizing high schools of the
county, was read by Prof. Creasy.
Comparatively few High schools keep
complete records. All principals are
urged to begin at once to keep rec
Tho matter of "uniform require
ments" was difficult to regulate un
til tho present year, when the state
course of sudy for elementary
schools has regulated the work to
bo covered by them. Uniform ex
aminations given by the county sup
erintendent will decide the mastery
of the course by tho pupils.
There should be sufficient unifor
mity In our course to permit classi
fication of pupils changing to dif
ferent High schools to prevent loss
of time to the pupil.
The committee suggests that fre
quent written tests bo given. The
questions to be prepared by prlncl
pals of other High schools.
Short recitation periods aro not
as' effective, and a seven-month term
cannot expect to cover the work
of a nine-month term.
Preliminary contests might be
held at intervals and a final contest
Teachers conveniently located
should organize a reading club.
This it is believed would bring the
elementary and secondary schools
Into closer touch and would result
In much good. Such arrangements
should give the teacher more defln
lto alms in their work. Too often
to' the teacher and pupils of the
country school the High school Is
In another world, one which they
know little about or care less.
The discussion was opened by
Mr. Martz. A motion was made that
Supt. Koehler appoint a committee
to make uniform examinations for
the county high schools. Prof.
Creasy suggested that the discussion
be postponed for future thought.
Prof. J. H. Kennedy read an ex
cellent paper on "Teachers' Don'ts"
which will bo published at some fu
ture date.
"What wo may reasonably expect
of pupils entering High school" was
the discussion opened by Charles
E. Martz. Ho said: "No pupil
should be allowed to enter High
school under fourteen years of age.
Finishing at 17 or 18 they aro young
enough to enter college or take up
a trade, and can get fullest under
standing of studies. The pupils en
tering High school should not be
without some thought of the future.
They should have completed satis
factorily the work of the grades:
should know more technical gram
mar as preparation for Latin. See
that definitions tell tho truth, and
that the child reasons to that effect,
not only in grammar but in all
branches. Teach moro political geo
graphy." The subject was discussed by Prof.
Oday and Prof. Watkius.
A vocal solo was rendered In ex
cellent tasto by Miss Freed, teacher
of vocal music In tho Hawley graded
"Aro our schools meeting the de
mands of tho community?" was tho
subject of Supt. J. J. Koehlor's talk.
Mr. Koehler Intended discussing:
Common things been In tho school
room, Agriculture and Alteration
scheme, but time growing short he
made his talk briof, not however
before making some Inspiring state
ments as "There is no profession In
which thero are so many unselfish
men and womon aa In tho public
school system," "I firmly believe in
the public schools nnd In tho public
school teacher."
The committee on resolutions re
turned thanks to tho residents of

and courtesy, and tho ineoting ad

said 3a young 'Carbondnlo man sever
al days ago In tho course of conver
sation with a friend of his. "I'll

until then. I'll bo decent then."
"My husband and I don't llvo to

speaking of her matrimonial troubles
to a reporter recently. llo was a

What a terrible Indictment of tho
"double standard of morality," such
statements nrol la it any wonder
that our divorce courts aro kept
busy? The wages of "auto-nuptial
wlld-oats sowing" are martial In
felicity, and Inevitable discord and
final separation.

along and it will get larger (almost without your
