It was a great victory on Tues day In New York. Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Indiana, and Ohio, for the Republicans, who un der tho banner of reform allied themselves with the Democrats and placed the above states in tho Dem ocratic column, and gave them a ma jority in Congress ELECTION NEWS. With characteristic enterprise, THE CITIZEN in its regular issue of Wed nesday morning gave as full an ac count as possible at that early hour of the results of Tuesday's election. Tho papers were sent out on the early trains, and reached the Bur rounding towns moro than three hours earlier than any other local or Scranton or metropolitan paper. We appreciate most highly the ef ficient service of our correspondents and friends throughout the county, whose cheerful help and willing co operation enabled us to give an al most complete summary of the re turns from the boroughs and town ships of Wayne county. Our esteemed contemporaries THE WAYNE COUNTY HERALD and THE WAYNE INDEPENDENT is sued "Election Extras," the HERALD appearing on the streets Wednesday morning about 9 o'clock, and the INDEPENDENT coming out late in tho afternoon. "If you see it in the 'home paper,' you know it's so." A large number of people called at THE CITIZEN office on Wednesday, to buy extra copies and the big election edition is almost exhausted. COMPULSORY EDUCATION. You will find a good many people who condemn the present system of compulsory education. They claim that it ought to be left to the child or his parents to determine whether he Is to have even a rudimentary edu cation or not. Let us investigate this claim for a moment. Under the old system, or lack of system, whichever you call it, a boy stayed away from school and wasted his time in hunting and fishing, and goodness knows, what else. Then the days of manhood came, and he went from one town to another look ing for work, but finding none or else work of any but a remunerative sort. Ho wondered why It was. Ho blamed the "hard world" and Its savage heartlessness whereas In real ity it was himself who was to blame. Ho had destroyed his own future use fulness and efficiency. Nor Is it very different In tho case of a parent who sends his child to work when it ought to bo attending school. It is all well enough to tell pathetic stories about the need of parents for their little one's earn ings, but It ought to bo remembered that every human child has certain Inalienable rights which not even a parent has the right to take away. It is not merely a question of some temporary deprivation, but It is a, matter of fixing a barrier between the child and his future efficiency that no man can pass over. The All-Round Farmer. As a matter of fact the farmer is ono of tho very few men who are qualified to bo called "all round men," says the Craftsman. His roofless workshop Is at a distance from communities -of any consider able size, hence ho naturally and al most Insensibly becomes a mastery in part at least, of practically all tho trades and professions; not because he Is miserly or lacking In funds hut becauso ho must grapple with things at first hand. Ho becomes perforce a bricklayer, carpenter, plumber, butcher, sheep herder, swineherder, hunter, bacter iologist, entomologist, moterologlst, horticulturist, agriculturist, pomolo Bist nnd at times minister, tinsmith, watchmaker, harnessmaker, banker, doctor, veterinary surgeon, dentist, lawyer and even, on occasion, an un dertaker. "Law For the Lawyers." "The United States Is on tho levol with Spain, Italy and Turkey In tho administration of Justice in its crimi nal courts, and not on a par with England, Franco and Germany," de clared President Edmund J. James of tho University of Illinois in an ad dress at tho monthly luncheon of the Head Assistants' association in Man del Brothers restaurant recently. President James denounced tho "senseless technicalities" In tho ad ministration of Justice, citing various 'instances, among them that of a crim inal froed becauso tho article "the" was loft out of tho corporate namo of tho stnto in the Indictment. Ho said that If many of tho criminal casos of tills country wore tried In England, Franco or Germany, they would be disposed of moro quickly and with groater certainty of Justice "It is tni injustice to tho public to allow such conditions," said President James. "It is a disgrace to our country that wo do not have adequnto education for our lawyers. Our crim inal law is mado for the financial in terests of the lawyers, and not for tho administration of Justice." HOPE TO DISCOVER MOUNTAIN OF GOLD. lloiif.,.- v "ii in tho Dome in Which Rich Streams of Klon dike llnvo Their Source. A Tncomn, Wash., special of Sun day says: In expectation of finding the ledge which orlglnnlly contain ed all the gold of the Klondike re gion nnd in which it is hoped there yet remain untold millions, an or ganization of Dawson miners and business men, assisted by tho Do minion government, has started to boro a scries of tunnels through tho dome in which all of tho gold laden creeks havo their source It is a venturo for a stupendous amount of wealth. If the expecta tions of the men who arc backing the project nre realized they will tap the source from which was shed by erosion the famous placers of the Yukon, which when discovered by George McCarmack startled the world and Inaugurated a stampede of gold hunters. From tho time when the first locations at Dawson were mado it was noted that all the gold bearing creeks had their source in ono great dome, or rounded hill, and the theory that this hill contained the balance of the treasure that was not lying in the streams was advanced by many miners and geologists, yet nobody had the courage to begin tho immense undertaking of pierc ing tho hill. Work has now begun on tho dome at the head of Lombard Creek, the dome from which sulphur, gold bot tom and several other producing streams start on' their torturous Journey to the Klondike. Somewhere in this mound, geo logists believe, lies the native ma trice which has converted hundreds of poor prospectors to men of com parative opulence. Whether it lies in one gigantic whole or is split up into a series of small stringers, or whether it has all been carried away by erosion is something that the boring of the tunnel will de termine. The tunnel has been completed for a distance of fourteen hundred feet. It is expected that Klondik ers will be able to see daylight on tho other side of the rich hill with in two years. Several small veins have been encountered. Coles for November. Tho Autumn hazo now seems to wrap the busy, throbbing world in its mantle, to clothe upon it its own peace and rest. The mellow sun light glints the purple and scarlet, gold and brown of the woodland, but with a tender light that softens and subdues their gorgeousness. The falling leaves fill tho air with aut umn's own faint fragrance. Sweeter than the scent from clover or new mown hay, is the dying offering of these withering leaves. Well, it is finished, the mellow, ripe-rich Aut umn day. Gone, never to come again, the odor and beauty only a memory! On this 1910 Thanksgiving Day let us give thanks with a Joyous heart for the many blessings bestow ed upon us, and gratitude to the Great Author of beauty must steal Into every heart, when it reads, in tho peace of the Autumn sky, a Father's boundless love. Tho vital forces will bo at "high flood" more than one-half of the time this month, as follows: 1st, ,2nd, 3rd. 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 14th. 15th, ICth, 18th, 19th, 20th, 2Cth, 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th. Greater op portunities than over lie before us if wo will only seize them. Don't be a pessimist. Believe In yourself and your country. Get into tho fight and do your part. As wo approach the end of our Journey around tho sun, tho starry heavens that He away beyond tho realms of our sun and planets, begin to tako on familiar aspects characteristic of the autum nal nights. Earth is now sailing through the "House of Sickness" (therefore guard well tho "low ebb" days), in company with Saturn, op posed by Mars and Jupiter Venus and Mercury side by side. The bunching of four planets, so nearly together on tho same side of the sun, is a peculiar combination that perturb the sun, and hence react up on themselves according to proven magnetic and electric laws. Under such concentrated perturbing forces, great sunspots and other solar agi tations originate, mutually exciting and disturbing o.vo.rv member nf tlin solar systefu: The total ecllpso of tho moon on tho ICth, visible in tho United States, will ho a most interesting phenome non. Tho greatest storm periods may bo expected on or about tho 2nd, ICth, and 23rd. An unusual amount of accidents, mishaps, disputes, etc., aro indicat ed. Those who speculate should bo careful to havo plenty of margin and not sleep while tho mark is in ses sion. Tho indications aro favorable for starting new business of im portant changes, especially during tho first part of tho month. U. C. COLES. Presbyterian Church at Suco. Among other items of business transacted at a well-attended ad journed meeting of tho Lackawanna Presbytory hold Tuesday afternoon with Rev. W. J. Day moderator, was tho report of tho committeo appoint ed by Presbytery to organlzo a church at Saco, Wayno county, through Revs. W. H. Swift and J, B. Cody, reported that they had organiz ed a Presbyterlau church there with thirteen members and tho committee recommended that tho Saco church ho added to the roll nf Presbytery which was done. $1,1)1)0 FOR INJURED HAND. Au lmpot Unit Cnso Under tho Labor La iv of tho Stule. At tho trial torm of Supremo court in Goshen Thursday of last week, a verdict for ?1,U90, the full amount claimed, was rondered in tho Biilt of Oscar W. McEwan vs. Dorden's Condensed Milk company. In Au gust, 1909, McEwan was employed by tho Ilordcn Company at Its sta tion in Pino Rush. Among his du ties was that of washing bottles. All the bottles were washed in a large wushlug machine, his duty being to put tho dirty bottles in ono end of tho machine and take them out at tho other end after they had been cleaned. On August 16th of that year ho had put a number of bot tles in the brushes nnd as ho started to walk around to tho other end to take them out, his foot slipped, which caused him to lurch, and in reaching out to save himself from falling, he threw his right hand to tho left of the machine and it went Into a set of cogs about live feet from the ground. Before ho could pull tho hand out his index finger was cut off and the thumb so badly smashed that it had to bo ampu tated. It was ills claim that tho cogs were not properly guarded, as required by the labor law of the state, and that by reason of their not being guarded properly ho sus tained tho injuries. Tho Motlicr-ln-Law. A Minneapolis man and his sweet heart eloped to Chicago. The girl's mother followed them hot-foot and found them quarreling. So she mar ried the man herself, with the daughter as bridesmaid. Who knows what might have come about had the girl's grandmother dropped in beforo tho ceremony? This is delightful. It adds spice to living. We can imagine what hap pened. The mother burst suddenly upon them with blood in her eye. The man reflected. Ho probably fig ured thus: "Hero is a very deter mined woman, who is making things uncomfortable for me. If I marry her daughter, I Bhall havo a terrible mother-in-law. I shall probably quarrel with a wife anyhow; why quarrel with two? Better marry her mother and not have any mother-in-law than marry tho daughter and live between two fires. So, in pur suance of the thought, he up and marries tho prospective mother-in-law and solves handily a vexatious problem. There will be no mother-in-law in his family. And yet we havo a tender spot for the mother-in-law, and now that this incident of the news has opened tho way, why not consider for a moment the rankest injustice of do mestic tradition? The mother-in-law is no brawling termagant. She is not the bane of man's existence. She docs not habitually make life miser able for her daughter's husband. On the contrnry, sho generally leans to the side of the son-in-law when she is called upon as domestic arbiter; and for him she reserves the tender loins and picks the lightest muffins. His towel Is always fresh and ready for tho bath, his mirror for shaving placed where there is most .light. Mother-in-law frequently lends, nion ey to son-in-law, and if he iff up against adversity he may live at home in luxury until things mend. For his socks mother-in-law has a willing needle, and when his head aches it is mother-in-law who fetches the camphor. Yes, we have a warm spot for the mother-in-law Just as we have for the much-abused but long-suffering boardlng-houso landlady. Of course there are exceptions, but nine of every ten men who have mother-ln-laws will admit, if they think with out prejudice, that it's about' time Justice were done. From tho stand point of a man's material and spirit ual comfort, a mother-in-law is a mighty good thing to have about tho house. Baltimore Sun. How "Rub and His Friends" Was Written. Dr. Brown's uncle, the Rev. Dr. Smith of Blggar, asked him to give a lecture In his native village. He had never lectured before, but was anxious to say something to tho "strong brained primitive people of my youth," and In a rare moment of Inspiration ho decided to tell them Aillo's story, tho memory of which Rupture Quickly Cured No Charge if You Not a single cent comes out of your pocket If a trial of the Cluthe Truss which automatically gives Massaeo Treatment doesn't result In Immense relief. We don't want a cent of your money unless this Truss docs you a world of good. The Cluthe Truss with Its jVutomatlo Massage Treatment Is entirely unlike any other truss ever made. There Is no belt, no leg straps, no springs, no harness of any kind what ever. Nothing at all uncomfortable.

No matter how you lift and strain, the Cluthe Truss will hold your rupture se curely and comfortably In place. You'll never suffer another moment's discom fort. Think of that you who now have to put your rupture back perhaps many times a day you who now wear trusses that cause you constant torture. Automatic Manage Treatment. The Cluthe Truss automatically gives a wonderfully beneficial massage treat ment. It has Automatic Holding Pads. They are self - regulating self - adjusting to every movement you make. That is why It Is utterly Impossible to force these pads out of position. There Is always proper support for your rupture. And these Automatic Holding Pods au tomatically massage the weakened mus cles at the rupture opening until they are strong and sound. This massaging does for these muscles what exercise does for the arms or legs. That Is how the Cluthe Truss cures even after everything else has failed to do any good whatever. Cures In Short Time When you wear a Cluthe Truss you can do any work that you could do If you weren't ruptured. And, unless yours Is a terribly bad case, the Cluthe Truss with Us Automatic Mas sage Treatment will soon cure you com pletely. The Cluthe Truss has cured hem of the worst cases In history. had never left him slnco ills days in tho Mlnto llouso hospital. Ever lio saw tho beautiful face of the suf fering woman, hoard tho volco of the hcart-brokon carrier ontreatlng him to toll all tho world what his Aillo was nnd listened to Rnb whin ing at tho hospital door. At 12 o'clock ono midsummer night ho sat down to tell tho tale, and by 4 o'clock ho hnd finished It. Ho called tho lecturo "Tho Howgnto Carrier, Ills Wife and ills Dog Rab," but Ills uncle in introducing tho subject to tho Blggar audience omitted the Inst word, at which Dr. John complained that his friend Rah had boon grievously Insulted. "There was no doubt ho was a dog," ho cxplnincd, "hut ho wns a great deal more ho was Rab." Perhaps It was to mako amends to tho faith ful creaturo that when tho story ap peared In print the author entitled It "Rab and His Friends." Ho used to say that manufactured conversa tion wns beyond his powers. When urged to write another "Rah" ho said, "That Is impossible. I cannot feign these things." Cornhill Maga zine. - AMUSEMENTS. "Tho Wolf," undoubtedly tho greatest success of that now famous author, Eugene Walter, will be brought to the Lyric on Thursday, Nov. 10. "The Wolf" is a melo drama of the Canadian Hudson Bay country, in three acts. Tho first act takes place in front of tho home of Andrew MacTavish, a Scotch trader, on tho banks of the Wind River; the second act is the interior of the same home, and the third is in the woods at the portage of Little Bear River. The action consumes but a day. Years beforo tho story of "Tho Wolf," begins, a half-sister of Jules Beaublen has been betrayed by an American adventurer, and on his death-bed Jules' father tells him to find his step-sister, Annette, and care for her. Jules goes North on the search, but finds that his sister met voluntary death in a storm, af ter her betrayal. He determines to find the man and avengo his step sister's wrongs, enlisting with him Batiste LeGrande, a nomad. In the first act, William McDon ald and his assistant, George Hunt ley, aro found stopping at the Mac Tavish home, while promoting the construction of a railroad. McDon ald has been making love to Mac Tavlsh's daughter, Hilda a child hated by her father because he wished for a son, and because her mother deserted him on account of his abuse. Jules and Batiste arrive. Jules Is Hilda's admirer, but hai never spoken his love. To him Mc Donald boasts that, although he is married, he Is going to take Hilda away with him. In his boasting, ho admits that it was he who drove Annette to her death in the storm. There is a fight which ends in the death of McDonald at the hands of Jules in the last act OLD $1 NOTE COMING RACK. Treasury to Renew Issuo Dropped 25 Years Ago. The old United States ?1 note which disappeared from circulation in 1885, is to be called into the ser vice again. Secretary MacVeagh de cided that the enormous demand for bills of smaller denomination war rants an issue, which was authorized in 1907, but until now has never seemed really necessary. Tho plates which have been pre served in tho Bureau of Printing ana engraving will be pressed into service and, beginning yesterday, tho notes were issued at about tho rate of $1,200,000 a day, until the de mand for small bills is met. There are issued 34G, 081,016 of United States notes. That amount Is authorized by law and does not change. Of that sum about ?75, 000,000 is in notes of the denomi nation of ?20 and upward. Secretary MacVeagh believes the demand for notes of larger denom inations is amply taken caro of by gold certificates, so beginning yester day all United States notes of ?20 or moro which coma into the Treas ury for redemption or In course of business will be destroyed and their vnluo will be issued in notes of ?1 each.
