HE DIDN'T OWN IT! W HAT STRANGE THINGS THEY DO IN NEW YOKK! The latest victim was Harry De fine, a farmer and commission mer chant, who resided at Hawloy, about live or six years ago, and more re cently lived at Big Pond, according to tho New York Evening World, who fell for the old arm game, of paying money over to sharpers for the purchase of a saloon which they hadn't the least claim to. The World last Thursday told of the arrest of Thomas Thornton, a well dressed man of fortyrtwo years, In New York on the charge of hav ing swindled Define out of $2,000. According to the World tho old game was worked In the same skilled and clever way. A dapper stranger appeared in Hawley the latter part of November and lost no time in finding a citi zen who wanted to "spread out." He picked' Define, who is moderate ly wealthy as his prey. Finally came the day when the stranger could murmur: "You don't belong in. a place like this., you bo long In New" York.- 'It's (hollering for men llko you." Define fell for tho" bait. ' "I've been thinking the same thing for some time," he said. And then came tho confidential talk. The stranger knew of a sa loon at Park Place and Greenwich street, New York, that was for sale cheap. The man running It had made so much money that ho didn't know what to do with it, so ho was getting out of business. Define 'spruced up" and went to New York with the stranger. Define was shown tho corner saloon. Ho was Introduced to the man with the diamond stick pin and diamond rings, Tho man was- introduced, as tho owner of tho place. Thornton is alleged to have been this man. Thornton offered to sell for $4,000, the purchaser to also take tho $4, 000 mortgage on the place. "Dirt cheap. I'll pay $2,uuu on it now," remarked Define, who felt liko hitting the celling, he was so elated over the bargain. The money was paid over. "Ill be around to take charge to morrow," said Define. "You're on," answered the sup posed proprietor. Bright and early the next morn' lng the Hawley man entered the sa loon, took off his coat and hat and hung them up. Then ho began to give orders. The bartender came from behind tho bar. "For the lave of Mike, whre do you come In to give orders 'round here? asked the bartender. "I'm the owner of tho place," answered Define Thinking him crazy or lntoxlcat od, the bartender hustled him from tho building and called the police. "You've been most generous to two swindlers who don't own a cent In this saloon," they explained to Define, Then the great light dawned upon the "man from homo" and ho went to the pollco station with his com plaint. Thornton was held for court. HOBBLE SKIHT MAIDEN FALLS ON MAIN STREET, Following the styles and going to tho extremes with thorn might have proved serious for a very stylishly hobble skirted female on Saturday afternoon at Ninth and Main streets when tho hobblo became entangled about her knees and she fell. Two gallant young men who saw her stumble rushed to her sido and lifted her to her" feet. Sho looked around, then dropped her head and had tho more observant passerby gazed beneath her beautiful silk bo plumed plcturo hat ho would nav seen a countcnanco that could boast of modesty and blushes that rescm bled a Juno rose. After thanking tho two gentlemen for their proffered aid, tho young woman started up Main street amidst tho gapes of a crowd that was threo-fourths men. UNCLAIMED LETTERS.

Going back again to me newspa per article under discussion Prof. Oday continued: "Legally I have a L I PLEASANT AND PROFITABLE AF FAIR CONDUCTED BY Y. 1. S. OF ST. JOHN'S CHUItCII, THURSDAY EVENING. An unnualifled success and a well-attended affair was tho annual Bazaar of tho Young People's So ciety of St. John's Evangelical Lu theran church neid last mursauy evening In tho church parlors, Church street. Tho gross receipts reached $345, and tho net pronts will probably amount to more man 300. The decorations of tho various booth3 wore especially beautiful, and called forth many favorable com ments. Small, colored Incandescent llchts were used to excellent advan taco for decorative purposes. Red nonnles. purple. Dink and white chrysanthemums Jont a truly holl dav flavor to tho scene. To begin nt the beginning, -mere was first of all a "Bakery liootn, presided over by Mrs. Henry W. Rehbein and Mrs. Frank P. Mo Kanna. Among tho good things purchaseablo at this stand were kuchon. lobkuclien. all Kinds oi fancy cakes, homemade bread and snrlngorlles.

A doll's house Plan ned by Mrs. Colo and Miss Eber- hardt nnd built by Jonn uoio anu John Cnrnilchnol was a feature of this booth. Dolls, "all dressed up lovely," and everything thnt goes toward dressing a doll, coats and hats woro nulckly disposed of. The Fancy Booth in ehargo of Mrs. Genung, Trnceyvillo, Miss Christina Seellg, was a mecca for bent. Red popples were a charming back ground to a display of fancy work, rich in dollies, laundry bags jabots, pillow covers, stocking and shopping bags, and moro things than a man could enumerato much less descrlbo.

"Vhe only place where uray anu I differ," resumed Prof. Oday, "Is In the amount I shook him and In the language which he said I used, and which I didn't use." "This 13 the first timo," said Mr. Oday In response to a question put to him by the reporter, "that I ever had a warrant sworn out against me. In my work, of course, thero is continually a little friction coming up. If I tell a boy to do a thing he has got to do It. That is my dis position." ".It is nothing uncommon for us to straighten out affairs that happen on tho street," said Prof. Oday. "Within the present school year, even, we made the youngsters take rags and scrub off marks on the bridge, as well as on the Presbyter ian church. Usually there'll be a name there that will give us a clue. We try to have the youngsters be have on the streets." "The Gray boy wasn't locked up in the basement, he was only seated on tho bleachers, while I Instructed a class In gymnastics," said Prof. Oday. Prof. Oday then read Article CLXXVI, sections 100-103, of Pennsylvania School Laws and De cisions, as follows: 100. Tho Jurisdiction and au thority of the teacher over the pu pils are neither limited by the Fijool house, walls, nor to the time the school is actually in ses sion. As a general rule, In all matters legitimately connected with the schools and tho manners and morals of tho scholars, the teacher's Jurisdiction, conjointly with that of the parent, commences when pupils leave the parent's roof and control to go to school, and continue until their return from school. The teacher, how ever, Is not responsible for the misconduct of pupils on the way to nnd from school, though he has and utility of the articles display ed. We almost forgot to mention that thero was a "Fishpond," ably attend ed to by Miss Amelia M.

Cortriglit Badly Hurt Special to THE CITIZEN. New Orleans, December 13. Mr. and Mrs. Chancey A. Cortrlght, Mrs. Delia Hamlin, Hamlinton, Mrs. Alllo B. Mills left Honesdale a week ago, on a Western trip. Just before reaching Baltimore, Md., Mr. Cort rlght, while rising to his feet, was thrown to tho floor by the motion of tho train, nnd quite badly hurt. A telegram was sent ahead to Balti more for a doctor who met them at tho station. Mr. Cortright was made as comfortnble as possible, and tho Journey continued. A telegram was received to-day from New ur lcnns, La., stating thnt ho was al right, nnd that tho party had en trained for Farthor West. Coiuo On Wuyno County Fanciers! You Surely Can Heat This! A. B. Bush, a Scranton man, has a buff Orphlngton hen that laid a'JO ckcs from Nov. 18. 1909. to Nov. 18, 1910. He has been corresponding with editors of farm Journals and finds thnt he has tho world's record 280 eggs bolug tho highest record prior to this. This Is not altogether an nccldent. Ho read up tho poultry business for eight years boforo ho bought tho hen. You will mnko no mistnko If you will look over our cont-a-wqiaL col umn to-dny. Brown, tho furzHfciro man, Is doing some advertising. tho right to punish for such misconduct, when brought to his knowledge. 101. Tho teacher is to bestow equal and Impartial attention on all children placed under his charge; to be undeviatlng in ad herence to a firm, uniform and moderate system of discipline, and to pay most especial regard to the morals, habits and general'behav lor, as well as mental instruction of his pupils and their parents or guardians should be sacredly re spected, sectarian instruction not being tho province of the school teacher, but of the parent or guardian, and the spiritual teach er selected by him. 102. The teacher should govern his school by appeals to tho rea son nnd better feelings of his pu pils If possible. But a teacher In the common schools stands In tho place of a parent to a pupil, and may administer correction to mm under the same restrictions as In the case of a parent. - 103. Tho right of a teacher to Inflict such punishment is founded upon the necessity of the case and not upon statute. It is absolutely! necessary that good order should be maintained in the schools, and that all proper rules, regulations and commands of the teacher, should be strictly and promptly obeyed. Hence a necessity exists for sufficient power to enforce this duty, and therefore It Is held that tho teacher may Inflict such rea sonable punishment upon the pupil an the parent might Inflict Jor a similar cause. It becomes the duty of directors, therefore, to sustain the teacher In their efforts to preserve order and maintain discipline in the school. "When I saw this Gray boy." said Prof. Oday, "the llttlo bit of a rascal had the other boy down In the snow near the Presbyterian church and tho latter was crying." "Tho laws of the State are all in favor of the teacher, on thoso ques tions.

Tho proposed brldgo spanning Park Lake was continued until next meeting. Several communications wero read and tho secretary was Instructed to correspond with tho parties, with a vlow to securing them to locato In Honesdale. Tho proposition of securing tho old schedulo of froigjit on the Hones dalo branch of tho Delaware & Hud son railroad, that of two trains dally, was discussed at length. It was stated upon good authority, that tho freight that goes to Car bondnlo on tho afternoon train re mains In thnt city all night, while under tho old schedule, operating two trains from Honesdale, direct connections aro mndo with other ronds and better service secured. It Is alleged thnt other towns havo hnd one freight a day and upon complaint from propor authorities tho former schedules woro restored.

No man is going to allow another man to come into his office and make a disturbance. "When the facts of the case are all known," said Mr. Odny, "people will know J've been in the right." "Usually thero aro two things I punish for: impudence and playing hookey. We have no truant officer, and I chase after the boys until I get tired, and then I think a cood whipping keeps them in school. When boys say "I won't do so and so," I sometimes And whipping is a good thing for them." "I should hate very much not to havo tho right to whip if we have need. We use a little rubber hose when wo use anything." Prof. Oday after vainly ransacking several draw ers to find It, said "I guess it' gone." To the reporter whose acquaint ance with Prof. Oday was of the slightest, tho interview came as a great revelation of the rairness ana Justness of the man. At Syracuse. Mr. Oday captained the football team two seasons, and there learned the lessons of self-control that have stood him In such good stead ever slnco. Of course when a big muscular man, almost seven foot tall, says some thing, ho generally says It as though he expected to bo obeyed, and obedi ence Is, as a rule, what he gets. It Is the Impression of the report er that this little Incident only help to bring out info still stronger prominence the fact that Honesdale has a principal of schools who don't lose his head even under the most provoking circumstances. To know that our boys and girls may be safe ly entrusted to his care why, it was well worth while that this little 'dlf ferenco" cropped out.
