Wayne county leads with fifteen miles completed during the four years, that county having realized the advantages of the state appro priations to a greater extent than any other county. 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,' 128.49.

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 ating." Our President tells us, "It has be.en a surprise and a pleasure how willingly and gladly the wom en of this and neighboring towns have .taken up the hospital project. We certainly think the new women realizes that "patrlqtlsm to-day con sists In serving the community In which she lives." It produced a ripple of amuse ment when Miss Weiss read the fol lowing: "A politician of experience 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 through, and when a hundred get together you might as well try to stop a steam roller with a toothpick as to put a spoke In their wheel."

On the complaint of Paul Vogel who alleges that "one Henry Fisher did in a disorderly manner abuse and call deponent a skunk within the Lyric Theatre of Honesdale, and fol low this deponent and depondent's lady friend on the streets of the Bor ough of Honesdale and In a loud voice call deponent a scab and skunk nnd follow deponent and his lady friend and use bad language on the public streets of the borough of Honesdale." Squire Robert A. Smith issued a warrant for the ap prehension of Henry Fisher, Monday morning. Paul W. Vogel, a smoother in the employ of tho glass cutting firm of I Herbeck-Demer Company, told a re porter on THE CITIZEN his troubles Monday morning In Squire Smith's office. "I was insulted and threatened at the Opera House Saturday night," said- Mr. Vogel. "I went up on the front seat on the left of the balcony with my lady friend. Two fellows! came In and sat down 'behind us. Some fellows in the back part of tho balcony asked what I had on." "It's a skunk," "it smell's awful." I have been in tho habit of wearing a yoilow duck coat. "Four buckle artics would look better," some one yelled." At this Juncture Attorney P. F. Iloff came Into the Squire's office. "We want a warrant on the charge of disorderly conduct. Squire." Squire Smith: "Well they're very modest." Mr. Iloff: "Wo don't want to ar rest him for larceny." "Tho defendant wasn't drunk, he was sober to my knowledge," broke In Mr. Vogel. "We want a warrant," said Mr. iloff, "for disorderly conduct nnd threats on person. We want to pre fer such charges as we can sustain." Squire Smith: "Where do you re side, Mr. Vogel?" Mr. Vogel: "1702 East Extension street " Squire Smith: "I'll have to get it all in, or some one-horso lawyer will come down and say It was Illegal." Tho affair It was brought out took place Saturday evening, tho 17th. "Who is the one who done It?" asked Squire Smith. "Henry FlShor," answered Mr. Vo gel. "Henry Fisher," he continued, " Is a glass cutter. I think ho Is In tho employ of Krantz & Smith, but I'm 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 with a young lady attended the mov ing pictures Saturday evening at the Lyric Theatre. They went Into tho balcony and were seated, and ho was seated with his young lady. Another nian enmo in and sat behind him. "I am sitting behind a skunk. It's awful," said the nowcomor, nnd called him (Vogol) other vilo and oppr'oblous names. Vogol got up with his lady friend and went down to tho main floor. Fisher followed, and called him "a running sore," a "scab," a skunk," and other names, on tho main floor of tho theatre. The young man and his lady friend got up and wont out. "Como outside. I'll fix you," yelled Fisher. Vogol went out with his lady friend. Fish er followed and called to him on tho street "Como hero, you, we'll settlo It right here." Tho prosecutor said nothing nt all." "Ed. Knapp was with me," broke In Vogol, "and his lady friend. Ed. Knapp had to go Into Brooks'. Wo waited outside. Fisher and three others emtio up tho street. I walked on. "Come here, Vogel," ho yelled, "1 want to seo you." 1 paid no at tention to It, but went about my business." Mr. Iloff: "Ho was disorderly In and on tho stroet. No one has any right to submit to Insult and abuse on tho street. Tho law provides a romody for conduct of this sort. That is what wo seek, lcgnl redress.

"I never put In such a night In all my life," said John H. Heumann, the genial proprietor of the Hotel Heumann, In describing to a CITI 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 In their eyes. After the game was played In the High School Gym nasium, in which the town boys bad ly defeated them, they went to the Hotel Heumann and registered for the night. Tho guest book contains the names of them all, seven being grouped under the head of "team." Their names are: E. P. Lawton, G, F. Fadden, R. D. Ridgeway, C. E. Heckel. W. H. Thornton, S. T. Ed ward, T. J. Lawln, all of Scranton. Four others, viz: J. B. KIngsley, G. Craig, M. A. Cassesse, P. O'Brelrt, 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 ments. I called up the manager, 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 mann, who was backed up In his demands by several prominent and Influential citizens, finally got them to pay up. The whole proceeding wns a most disgraceful one. Mr. Heumann has the reputation of running a good and quiet house, and the " fresh " actions of this gang of " prep " boys from the Electric City, will not help to add fame to tho aristocratic School of the Lackawanna. vice what to do. I found out his name this morning. I'd know him anywheres, any place." "It's a nlco tlmo of tho year," said Mr. Vogel In an aside to tho report er, "to be laying around, everything going out and nothing coming In." it was said that Fisher Is a man with dark hair and eyes and recently married. It was alleged by one of the spectators In tho olllce that he was under arrest now for a case of disorderly conduct. Mr. Iloff: "Ho must be Intending to Incite riots nnd revolutions and things of that sort Intimidations." Tho Information wns sworn to, a warrant issued, and some one went to find out where County Detective N. B. Spencer was. And tho report ers oh yes, they nlso loft and went back to Park Row to write up their stories.

Where Did Tlicy Get Them? ListcM To .Me, At "Lower Woods Pond" In Wnyn Conn-toe!" "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 coffeo drinkers." "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 " Noxt! ty dollnrs, the property of Charles Speak, then and being found did take and lead away," was arrested last Thursday afternoon and brought be fore 'Squire Smith, who committed him to Jail Monday, undor $500 ball, slnco he wns unable to furnish ball.
