OVERCOME WITH GAS TIMELY HELP SAVES Prompt Response of Doctor Restores Unconscious Man Heroic Methods Neccessary- Frank Alberty and Harry Deck were engaged on Sunday in tapping the gas main on East Park Avenue with a view of making a connection whereby a supply pipe could be laid that would supply the new Armory, with gas. They had excavated a deep trench, had uncovered the main and were busy" drilling and tapping the pipe but were, paying no atten tion to the escaping igas until the at mosphere about them 'became per meated and they began to Inhale tho gas-freighted air when Alberty suddenly, collapsed and Deck began to wobble. The helpers who were nearby readily realized the danger and pulled Deck to the surface be AMUSEMENTS. "Tho Thief." "The Thief" tells a story of how a woman stole large sums of money to buy clothes In order to make her self attractive in the eyes of her husband whom she deeply loved. The second act of this great Froh man success is claimed to be the most startling series of scenes ever presented on the stage. Will ap pear at the Lyric to-night. "The Uluo Mouse." Here Is how "The Blue Mouse," a Salomer," for $2,000 a month, gets a clerk promoted to the post of di vision superlnten'dency of a trolley line. Clyde Fitch wrote the story and what is said to be one of the cleverest companies of farce players will relate the story at the Lyric next Thursday, Dec. 1st, when E. J. Carpenter brings the German-American success to this city for tho first time. The clerk, Rollett by name, loves his wife and desires to improve their condition. His superior, Lewellyn, president of the Inter-State Rail road, Is also married, but to a shrew, which fact seems to inspire him to flirt with every pretty woman. Therefore, Rollett hires "Tho Blue Mouse" to Impersonate his real wife and flirt with Lewel lyn, paying .her highly if she will capture for him an order appoint ing him division superintendent. Here Is opportunity for suggestlve ness, but so masterfully has Mr. Pitch handled tho story that any thought of the gross is removed and the audience reaps only hearty laughs. Of course, Mrs. Lewellyn Is drawn Into the trouble, as well as tho real Mrs. Rollett and her fath er of Cohoes, who unexpectedly drops into the city. Tho first act snows tho o'fllces of tho railroad; tho second takes place In tho "Inner Apartment" of "The Blue Mouse." It Is during this act that Mr. Fitch has arranged an auction sale which Is highly diverting and so much out of tho ordinary as to prove one of tho novelties of tho play. Three actB in all are required to tell tho story. "Wundcrliibt." The desire to travel Is strong In the human breast. Everybody seems to be possessed to a greater or less extent, of what tho Ger mans call "Wanderlust." The land we have not yet visited is Just the one that wo long to see most.

Charles Juno Knapp, at one time interested In the printing of the Out ing Magazine, was discharged, one day last week, from custody by Jus tice Gladding, of the Supreme Court. Knapp had been on trial on a charge of receiving a deposit In a bank known to be insolvent, of which Mr. Knapp and his brother, C. P. Knapp, were the heads. The case was bitterly fought but tho order of the court was not a sur prise, as the state had been losing ground regularly In Its case. Marriage Ijiccn.se Record. Arthur H. Tictze, Hobokcn, N. J.

Dr. Fred Powell, whose residence Is nearby, was hastily summoned. He reached the scene none too soon, for It required vigorous efforts on his part to expel the gas from the lungs of the unconscious man and to get him back to a normal condition. This Is the first time Alberty has been overcome with gas, although' he has been tapping gas mains for many years. His specialty is water mains, being foVeman of the Water Company's outside force.

ENTHUSIASM EVOKED By Citizen's Gigantic Bermuda Contest Interest is UnparaBi-eled-Candidates Names Print ed Friday.

(By H. C. Van Alstyne) Are You Going? That's what's on the tip of the tongue of every girl and woman In Honesdale and vicinity. No one stops or hesitates a mo ment to ask "Where?" for every one knows that every one else Is talk ing about the same thing they are thinking about the phenomenal prizes offered by THE CITIZEN a trip to Bermuda, and all expenses paid from leaving Honesdale until returning, besides. Mnny Others Enter. This Is the fifth day since the first announcement was made. Many young ladies have entered since last Thursday and every mall brings In more names of v young ladles who are anxious to fie our guests on n, tour of the' Bermuda Islands. The offer has, created a stupendous sensation and straightway evoked enormous enthusiasm. The very first mail, received after the paper was out contained a nomination of a pop ular" young lady by a well known business man. That's the way to get going. Of course she will have- no big advantage over those who are also getting started. But, it makes impressive the Importance of getting an early start. If you have a friend, girl or woman living In Honesdale or vicin ity, married or single, whom you would like to take tho tour, and who would make an active candi date, send in her name at once on the nomination blank. Or, If you are a hustling young lady YOU will nominate YOURSELF and get under way. The thing Is to DO IT TO-DAY, DO IT NOW. It's the trip of a lifo time. YOU can win. YOU can see tho Islands A PALM GROVE, BERMUDA. of Bermuda. YOU can follow In tho footsteps of mnny other travelers. YOU can go to Bermuda as tho guest of Tho CITIZEN. Why not go? It costs nothing. Tho Vuluo of Travel. Tho old-time provorb that a' roll ing stone gathers no moss is as worthless as were and aro some of tho old-tlmo saws. Moss, 'unless It is Irish moss, for culinary purposes, has no valuo any way. If a rolling stone gathers no moss, it does gother a good deal of polish. In other w.ordB, tho man or woman who travels gets a far better Idea of life and ltfo's meaning than does tho man or woman who re mains at home. A Stupendous Proposition. Tho CITIZEN offer, owing to its tremendous generosity and liber ality, is unparalleled In tho history of Honesdale Journalism. During mid-winter when tho snow covers tho fields of Pennsylvania It will send live ladles from Honesdalo and vicinity on an extended tour of Bermuda, whero tho climate is al ways the same. " Five winners will enjoy a person ally conducted tour as per itinerary. Four winners will be happy in the possession of beautiful diamond rings, and four others In the pos session of gold watches. It Is a gigantic undertaking for a newspaper to make such arrange ments for its friends and well wish ers' all at no expense to those who wilf be fortunate enough to be our guests. But as the people of Hones' dale know The CITIZEN is in the habit Of doing things in a quiet but refined way, and erallzing how keen the people of this section are to take advantage of a good thing, we have ho fears for the success of tho present enterprise. Every comfort that will add to the pleasure of the "winners will be produced, and all expenses will be borne .by the CITI ZEN. Expense of ,'tfanspdrtation ttnrt transfer of baggage, hotel bills, effrtiago hirer- omnibus hire, lunch parties, even the "tips" along the way to porters, cabbies, bell boys and the usual people that must be especially remembered, will be paid by this paper. You must acknowledge it is a big undertaking. Bermuda, The Land of Flowers. There is to-day, hardly need for any detailed description of Bermuda on account of the high standard of intelligence found in the people of Honesdale and vicinity. The clus ter of islands has attached such a measuro of popularity among Amer ican, pleasure seekers that It Is scarcely less well known than tho Southern states of this country with which it lies parallel. The most northerly group of corallslands in tho world, the British colony of Bermuda, is perched on the top or a submarlno mountain, 15,000 feet above the bod of tho sea. On the border lino of tho geographical di visions of tho torid and north tem perate zone's, Its cllmato is tho most truly temparato In tho world. Its position Is too southerly to fool tho chill of tho cold north winds, yet Just far enough south to catch the graterul warmth of the tropics. The sconery Is idyllic In Its nastorlal beauty, and tho stately palms of equatorial latitudes, blendlnc with the wealth of flowers born of a northern summer-time, combine with forest and shrub to clothe tho land In tho lavishly beautiful garb of a perpetual spring. It is an ocean of (lowers evory house has us iiowor garden, nnd roses bloom right through tho winter months. In tho early spring, acres and acres of land are carpeted with Easter lilies and from Anrll to December tho famous oleanders are magnifi cent masses of pink and scarlet mootus. Social Life.

Tho stato fisheries department Is planning a campaign on the coming legisla ture to secure control of a number of lakes In Wayno and Susquehanna counties. It is said that they are needed for fish propagation. About half of the lakes are pri vately controlled and the others are owned by the state, which refused to turn them over the the depart ment several years ago.

Organizer Luckock had charge of the strike, and the men are very much chagrined to think they were persuaded to lose so much time and money and gain practically nothing. fifi Gratitude5 Thanksgiving Sermon ietice Service in Baptist Church. 'REVIVAL OF RELIGION NEEDED" "MOST OF US STILL HAVE TIJEE TO SAY 'THANK YOU' (IN HONESDALE) THE NEW 'HELL' WORSE THAN THE OLD; Honesdale put Thanksgiving Day 'into practice last Thursday by turn ing out in larg6' numbers and filling the spacious auditorium of the First Baptist church whero union services were held in the morning. The ser mon was delivered by the Rev. A. L. Whlttaker, rector Grace Episcopal church, and was a masterly effort. Seated within the chancel rail, and taking part In the service, were Revs. W. H. Swift, D. D., George S. Wen dell, Will H. Hlller. Rev. A. C. Olver pronounced the benediction. Rev. Whlttaker spoke as follows: And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? Luke 17:17. I do not think that gratitude is a leading characteristic of the Ameri can people, although It la only In America, so far as I am aware, that there Is a general observation of a public Day of Thanksgiving. I think It well that there should be such a day. I think we as a nation especially and emphatically need It. We need it to counterbalance our national defects of character. It Is oneof the good God's compensatory dispensations, that a nation singu larly in need of such a day should have it. Wo are certainly not alono in the possession of this grave defect. Nineteen centuries ago men had this deadly vice of ingratitude, this mur derer of the finer qualities of the soul. Men of tho most religious race under heaven had it, a race that prided Itself upon the accuracy with Its members kept their accounts with ono another. "An eye for an eye.a tooth for a tooth" was their rule." But favors and blessings were not always so promptly acknowl edged. Ono day tho kindly Jesus met ten men who were afflicted with the terrible disease of leprosy. How terrible It was and Is wo who have nover seen It can only guess. But wo know that It Is a living death. The deadly virus propagates within the putrid flesh until the poison strikes into somo vital part and takes tho victim to his welcomo fate. Such were tho men who met Jesus on tho road that day helpless, hope less, so rnr as this world was con cerned, damned. The rotten flesh hung from their limbs, tho wild look of despair was In their eyes. Hero boforo them was the man with a reputation for curing people. They woro ready to clutch at any straw. ". . . .and they lifted up their voices, saying Jesus, Master, havo mercy on us." And tho pity compassion of tho Son of God healed them evory ono. "And when Ho saw them, He said unto them, go and Bhow yourselves unto the priests. And It camo to pass, as they went, they wore cleansed. And one of them, when ho saw that he was healed, turned back with a loud voice glorifying God; and ho fell upon his face at His feet, giving Him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answer ing said, Wero there not ten cleansed? but where are tho nine?" If In tho entire record of history there be a baser Instance of in gratitude, except for thoso rare cases whero men bereft of most ele mentary humtfn feollng havo killed their benefactors, I know It not. Theso men had been worse than dead. They had been decaying alive, vainly wishing for the merci ful hand of Death. Because of tho kindliness of heart of a fellow-trav eler they had boon healed; their flesh had como to them again like WAYNE COUNTY STUDENTS AT WEST CHESTER.

Theme of Greets Rev. A- ivers at Union that of a little child, white and clean. The blood again 'coursed red and pure, in their. arteries. Life was again a joy instead of a hideous nightmare. Blessed hope again w.as theirs. Again they could shout at the beauty of earth and drink In with rapture the glory of the sun set heavens. But in the calm pos session of the greatest boon which It is in the power of the Almighty and all-loving God to give, the In grates, taking for granted the bless ing which had been vouchsafed them, marched on along the road, except the one man who had the de cency to turn back out of his way and acknowledge his debt. It was because Jesus knew human naure that this miracle and parable in ono appears in the gospel record. He knew the things In human char acter at which to hit, and hit them hard, with all the driving strength of the naked truth. And one of these things was human ingratitude. Hnd there lippn nn IniritlinHo nn the part of men, the blessed Son of God would not have been obliged to exchange the glories of the heaven ly realms for the bitter sordidness of earth. He would not have had to save man, for ho would have been saved already. It Is because men care not Who made them, and pro ceed along the highway of life as If they had received no blessings from God or from their fellowmen that tho overlasting Gospel of salva tion must be preached to-day. It Is because men act the part as if they had made themselves and kept the world moving upon its axis that outside the churches in this broad land today you will And the same men and women outside next Sun day, eating and drinkiug and visit ing and gossiping and squandering their time and becoming the while a Httlo more like tho dumb brutes and constantly again more brutish In their neglect of their God, are baso ingrates who pass along the road as though there were no merci ful Christ to turn back to. It is because there aro in this town and everywhere such crowds of men and women who. when asked about tholr duty to God, aro capable of saylug m eueci -wo aro uoa," that there Ib needed a revival of religion which might be fittingly started on this very day. as the truest sort of thanksgiving which any one of us can rendor. But I wish to give way to no tir ade against tho lndlfforenco of men toward their Almighty .Maker and Sustalnor. I would speak rather today of gratitude ,ns nn essential element In true character. Grati tude is a part of humility, that qual ity of truo greatness, which tho mighty, falling to possess, go down to ignoble defeat, the rock on which the proud in their selfishness are wrecked. Once in a living word said tho Christ, "Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled, and whosoever shall humble himself shall bo exalted." One meaning of which 1b that a man who la willing to acknowledge his dependence up on others Is a better man than ho who gives no thanks to any man. But how many of tho aggressive, self-proclaiming type wo have In our American life, boorish and unman nerly becauso they are so possessed with tho idea of their own Inde pendence nnd so taken up with this notion that they aro not responsible to any man, nayl to God or man.
