The Dyberry Road.
Tho "Dyberry Road," in Dyberry
township, Wayno county, has been
completed by Seaman, Irwin and
Brenneman, contractors of Hones
dale, Pa. This road Is 9,500 feet
long and the stone, or macadam, part
of the road Is sixteen feet wide for
3,800 feet of this distance and four
teen feet wide the remainder. Ono
thousand feet of this road has a six
Inch concrete top put down on a tel
ford base one foot thick. The ma
terial used for the .telford base and
tho second course was loca' stone,
while tho top course, or binder, was
imported. The macadam part of
the road cost sixty-four cents per
square yard, while the concrete road
way cost $1.50 per square yard.
There was ono reinforced concrete
bridge and two reinforced concrete
culverts built on this road, contain
ing eighty cubic yards of concrete,
besides tho steel reinforcing costing
$70 On account of this road being
located near the river It was neces
sary to build large concreto retain
ing walls at two different places and
put in rlp-rap at another point to
protect tho road from high water.
The retaining walls cost $2,293.50
nnd tho rlp-rap $273.50. In order
to protect tho dangerous places on
the road It required 1897 lineal feet
of fencing. Tho grading on this
road was quite extensive, tho location
being changed In two places, besides
tho grades ou tho road were lessen
ed considerably. This portion of
the work cost $3,900. Tho prelimi
nary estimate on tho road amounted
to $25,790.93; tho contract price to
$22,248.09, while tho additional
work amounted to $683,80 and tho
deductions to $1,803.40, thus leav
ing a net deduction of $1,119.00, or
the road cost as constructed $21,'

The Women's Auxiliary to the
board of the Wayne County Hospi
tal Association met in the town hall
Friday afternoon, December 16.
The treasurer, Miss Emma Smith,
Seelyville, reported about $S00 had
been deposited up to date. This
does not Include money taken In on
day of meeting.
The Hebrew L. A. S. kindly do
nated $25 which was very much ap
preciated. Mr. Horace Young has
promised $500, and written a very
encouraging letter wishing us suc
cess In our new enterprise. Mrs.
Alice Young Barnes, Oklahoma,
sent a check for $200, which was
thankfully received. While we hope
to receive many such donations from
old friends out of town It Is too bad
If our own county can not raise the
required amount regardless of these
kind oufside helpers.
Mrs. Brennaman, Traceyville, had
a very favorable report. She Is very
sure of $100. This Is fine from
these people who are working so
hard, to swell the fund. Miss Beetz
liopes to get the Same amount of
Texas No. 4. She tells us people
Willi small means are always the
most willing to help her.
A telegram received from Dr. R.
Gibbons was read: "My son, Dr.
Miles Gibbons, will be pleased to
have the privilege of furnishing oper
ating equipments necessary for oper

has be.en a surprise and a pleasure
how willingly and gladly the wom

have .taken up the hospital project.
We certainly think the new women

It produced a ripple of amuse

once said: 'When a good women
makes up her mind that some thing
ought to be done you better make
up yours, that she Is going to seo It

asked Squire Smith.
"Henry FlShor," answered Mr. Vo

a glass cutter. I think ho Is In tho

not certain. It was a complicated
affair all the way through."
Squire Smith: "Whnt did he do?"
Mr. Iloff: "In the first place what
he did was this: This young man

ZEN man the rumpus raised in his
hotel by a lot of young men from
Scranton, last Friday night. "They
ran around and banged at all the
doors. My wife was sick all day
Saturday from it."
It appears that last Friday, eleven
youths from the Electric City came
to the Maple City, with basket-ball-blood

was played In the High School Gym

Four others, viz: J. B. KIngsley, G.

also of Scranton, brought the total
up to eleven.
"They bunked together," said Mr.
Heumann, "and were disorderly all
night long. They kept the guests
and my family awake all night. I ,
went to their room three times and
asked them to bo quiet. They didn't
pay any attention to me."
"Next morning when the chamber
maid went to tho rooms, she found
they had smashed a bed to pieces.
They broke the spring and other dif
ferent little things, and some orna

who with his crowd had gone down
to the Commercial Hotel for dinner,
after settling their bill here. I told
him to settle."
To make a long story short, after
considerable pow-wowing, Mr. Heu

Influential citizens, finally got them
to pay up.
The whole proceeding wns a most

Beautiful Pickerel, Ttwnty-Threo!
Where Did Tlicy Get Them? ListcM
At "Lower Woods Pond" In Wnyn
"Why wo got about twenty-three
pickerel, at Lower Woods Pond,"
said John Congdon to a CITIZEN
man yesterday. Scenting a story a.
mile off, the reporter went over to
the Allen House, where Fred Lord
showed him ho fish, and told him
the particulars. In part his story
Is as follows:
"Why we got about thirty pickerel.
John Congdon and Jack Metzgar and
I drove over to Lower Woods Pond
Saturday morning. We fished with
"tlp-ups" through the ice. We had
a silver-tailed bait, a good-sized bait
running about 3 Ms, and 4 inches
long. Wo lay our success mostly to
the size of the bait, which we got at
Rlleyvllle. It was ten degrees below
zero when we left here at G o'clock.
We had a fine time. Tho sun came
out at 10 o'clock. We built a good
fire on the ice alongside the stump
of a tree."
"We started to eat our dinner
along around noon, but the fish were
biting so good, we had to let our
coffee and "hot wieners" go till we
pulled up the fish. It was great.
We lost a fish that went close to four
pounds, as we sat, down at dinner.
There was no wind stirring at all;
Just a cold, dry air. We didn't feel
the cold so much as you would If it
was only down to zero."
"It was an ideal day for fishing.
Most of our catch was In the morn
ing up to noon. I did tho cooking.
We went out together a year ago.
We are going to make It an annual
affair. The fish we caught weighed
close to 75 pounds. We divided
them up of course, and gave our
friends some, anl we have a fish din
ner Tuesday. We took along a
toaster to toast bread and "wieners,"
and broiled our steak over the fire.
We had about a gallon of coffee
Congdon and Metzgar are pretty good
"Wo got held up coming back
along by Big Eddy, this side of Tan
ner's Falls. We met two of Rlef
Ier's teams. It was very dark, and
started to snow. We struck a nar
row place along there, and we
didn't have any bells on our horses,
but wo saw there were two big char
coal teams. Wo stopped, and they
stopped their teams. It was noso to
nose, horse to horse, the charcoal
teams and our teams, so we couldn't
get by. They have wagons. We
didn't dare to go too close to tho
bank for fear of going over. We
backed out, lifted the cutter as close
to the bank as possible, then we
couldn't make It. We had to back
up our sleigh for thirty feet, till we
got back to a space a little wider, so
our teams could pass. We were
held up about 25 minutes, and got
home about 7 o'clock."
"All tho fish were laid out on one
of our long, twelve-foot "sample
room'' tables. Lots of people camo
In to see them. 'Finest catch they
ever seen.' they said."
"Coming back." said Mr. Lord, '"I
started on ahead with the string of
fish on my back, to get the rig. Tho
fellows thought I had fallen through
the Ice and got drowned."
Mr. Lord very kindly took the re
porter to the refrigerator and show
ed him the fish. They surely were
beauties, and tho reporter ever since
has had a bad attack of "fish fever "
