We gave a nice box of candy and a nice handkerchief to Leona." Report Of Grand Jury. To the Honorable Alonzo T. Searle, Judge of the Court of Quarter Sessions of the county of Wayne: The Grand Inquest of the Com monwealth of Pennsylvania Inquiring for the county of Wayne, respectful ly represents, that we have examined tho county buildings and as far as we can ascertain find them in very fair condition. Yet we think a very great improvement would be made if the County Commissioners would provide some sort of rubber mat ting and place it down the aisles of the court room to deaden the sound as people walk in and out while court is in session. We commend the County Commis sioners for introducing some differ ent mode of lighting the court room and sincerely hope they will con tinue in their efforts until they suc ceed in securing a satisfactory sys tem of lighting the same. Wo would "suggest that some way by electric wire or some other device j by which the inmates of the Jail could call the attention-iof the Sher iff or some of his household should anything happen Ike 'sickness, dur ing the night so they could receive proper attention, be installed. We have heard' rumors of the im proper use of money to control nomi nations for election to office, but not sufficiently satisfactory evidence to recommend prosecution. Wo would also recommend that the County Commissioners Install in the Court Room some system of ven tilation to protect tho health of those who are called upon to spend so many days in so poorly ventilat ed a room during the year. We be lieve there are systems that could be installed and not so very expen sive that would give very good sat isfaction. With these recommenda tions and suggestions we most re spectfully submit to your Honor. W. A. GAYLORD, Foreman. REUBEN LANCASTER, Clerk. Findings of Grand Jury. In re Commonwealth vs. Warren Simpson.

(Continued on Page Five). "THE KING'S BUSINESS!" LARGE AUDIENCE GREETED DR. SWIFT AT FIRST HAPTIST CHURCH, WEDNESDAY EVEN ING REVIVAL FIRES ARE BE ING KINDLED "CHRIST KNOCKING AT THE DOOR," THEME OF STRONG SERMON INCREASING INTEREST BEING MANIFESTED IN UNION REVIV AL SERVICES. The revival fires were kindled at the First Baptist church, Wednesday evening, when the Rev. W. H. Swift, D. D., pastor of the First Presbyterian church, delivered a powerful sermon from the text Rev elation 3:20:-"Behold I stand at 'the door and knock; if any man hear my voice and open the door I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and ho with me." By way of introduction, Rev. Dr. Swift said: "Motives of surpassing force have been brought to bear upon our hearts, our minds, our wills for two evenings. The first was the appeal to the better side of us the ties that bind us in a common brother hood. There is enough and to share for all the world that will satisfy the hunger tho spiritual hunger of men "Give ye them to eat." It is our privilege, our duty to pass on this bread of life to starving men. Wo must or go to the prison-cell, self-condemned because heartless. "Last evening we stood face to face with the fact that the church has failed to do Its duty to lost men and we searched for tho reason. Tho knife went deep, and we realiz ed how childish are all the excuses we try to give in explanation of our failure. The answer to the question: "Why could not we cast him the demon out?" is the answer Jesus gave to his disciples there at the foot of the mount "Because of your unbelief." We were called on to attempt great things for God now, and expect great things from God now. May I ask your attention to night to a motive that always seems to. me to bo simply Irresistible. I want to get above the thought of a common brotherhood the thought of failure' because of unbelief and ask your attention to an appeal that comes right from thelieart of Christ to our hearts or ought to do so. "Behold I stand at the' dp'pr and knock; if any man hear my voice nnd ope.n the door I will come In to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." ' Continuing Dr. Swift said in part: "Prosperous times make the Christ unreal to us. It ought to make Him, more real to us. We need Christ just as much in our bright hours as In days of darkness. Wo are apt to: think that Religion Is only for tho sickroom and funerals, times of trial. We ought to remember that Christ went to the Marriage Feast as well as to the House of Sorrow. "A man is not half a man who does not do some things with his teeth clinched and his face set like a flint. We sometimes imagine that Christian character comes to us un sought. It is tho result of 10,000 choices made through a lifetime of choices that cost us much. "The text emphasizes three things: First, That man is the arbi ter of his own destiny; secondly, That lifb Is intensely real; thirdly, that our possibilities are simply In finite. Life Is intensely real. Oh that we might know what the end less life Is! Sin stains are removed by the chemistry of Christ's blood. "I do not believe the heaven life hereafter is to bo filled with the shadows of eternal regret. "O Jesus Thou art pleading In accents meek and low, I died for you, my clilldren, And will ye treat, mo so?, O Lord with shame and sorrow We open now tho door Dear Saviour enter, enter. And leave us novermore." Rev. George S. Wendell led the singing, and reminded tho audience, at the opening of tho service, "You are not putting half the life and ginger In that song you might." Rev. J. S. Olver offered tho open ing prayer, and tho Scripture lesson was read by Rev. Geo. S. Wendell. Rev. Will H. Hiller offered prayer and pronounced the benediction. The spacious auditorium of tho Baptist church was well filled despite the rainy weather. Announcement was mndo that the service this oven ing will begin at 7:15 o'clock, so mat tho meeting will be over In ample time to hear the lecture in tho High School at 8:35 p. m. What To Do With Spare Cash. Building colleges and endowing oducatlonal funds Is selfish and use less, according to R. T. Crane, head of the Crano Company, of Chicago, which placed $425,000 In extra mon ey in the Christmas envelopes of Its employees. It Is very true that money used for cojleges and similar endowment Is used more or less at random and its direct benefits are" realized by but few. Tho sum of $425,000 directly bestowed, according to the Port Jer vls Gazette, can put many men on their feet and relieve tho stress of living and caring for a family. On account of the revival meet ings now in progress the lecture at the High school to-night will not commence until 8:35 o'clock. ThiB will give people an opportunity to attend the church service and still not miss tho lecture. bonus BALLOTS FOR BUSINESS TRIS WEEK; FORT!

If you are among the leaders capture one of these ballots and "Cinch" the Com panionship Tour. The winners of these ballots will not be announced until the last weok of the contest, but will be mailed direct to the lucky candidate. You must realize by this tlmo that tho vote Is growing smaller as each week passes. Last week 'iriore votes' were given for a single subscription than (ever. before.As. each period closes you must work" that much harder to secure as many votes as you did at first. While at first glance this offer may seem large, yet it is not near as easy as the opportunity offer of a couple of' weeks.ago. On the other hand there aro forty large ballots to be awarded this week. Will you get tho first or the last? It's up to you. The Tour manager will write which ever one you show you want. These ballots will be awarded regardless of district. "Does money turned In on new subscriptions toward the 50,000 bonus votes also apply on '.' e 400, 000 ballot competition?" ' Such were the substance of ques tions put to the tour manager yester day. The answer is yes, and every candidate should secure every possi ble new subscription this week and also collect up on every available old subscription. The winning of one of the big competition ballots and tho securing of a number of the new business bal lots for 50,000 votes each, means much toward victory on January 30. Just think of a 400,000 ballot, and you get It all for one week's work. This is tho opportunity for the "weaker" candidates to make a big killing just this one week. Some say that they aro working hard and they aro proving what they say by the number they are turning in. Th.ey are taking advantage of the six days' new business and com petitive offerB. Now, what these cheerful candi dates can do can be done Just as well by those who are crying that their work is over for lack of field to work in. If others can get subscriptions why can't you? Don't let other can didates get the advantage of you by tho simple method of "try, try again" especially during this week. The Bermuda Tours and Prizes in this, contest aro meant for you. Win it. A contest is an enterprise for thoso In it to work not part of tho time but from the start until the close. A Question for Candidates, A question for all candidates to ask themselves at tho close of each day Is: "Did I do all that was possl blo to gain votes to-day?' If yon cannot honestly answer In the affirmative then you are not do ing well enough and you should de cide firmly to Improve to-morrow. Somo newspaper contests which have been conducted In this part of tho country havo been arranged so that contestants with money had tho advantago over those who depended upon hard work to win the prize. For instance, in one contest votes havo counted double during the last week of the contest. This easily made it possible for a candidate who had money to spend it during the Inst day and smother the candidate who had been working hard throughout tho contest. In order that nothing of this sort may happen in THE CITIZEN'S con test it is hereby announced that no bonus 'votes or special inducements of any kind will be allowed during the last few days of the contest. There will positively be no doviatlon from this announcement. -i The watches and diamonds -f that will 1)0 awarded .to . tho -f contestants ns district prizes' will bo on display to-day at tho -f -f following places: CHAS. F. SPENCER & CO., 100 Ninth Street. G. I. SOMMERS, 001 Main Street. - II.

Candidates should look oyer their "yellow slips" before sending them in to make suro that every name and address is complete. When writing about a subscriber or ordering a chnngo of address, be sure to give tho complete name and address, as well as the number. A little care given to these details saves much time and trouble and permits. us to give them our immdlato attention. Voting Rules. No more than 5,000 subscription votes can be voted per week, above the leader in the district until Jan. 23, after which date there will be no limit or restrictions on the number of votes candidates may vote each day. Tho coupon printed in each issue of THE CITIZEN is redeemed to-day to 5 votes. The tour manager reserves the right to discontinue printing the coupons at any time during tho con test.

While the com mission named to codify the election laws of the State and to bring them down to date has not completed Its work, It Is said that It has determin ed to recommend a change in the primaries from June to September. At the recent meetings, of the Leg islature opinion among the members was strongly in favor of a change, as" every one declared In -his county some strenuous fights were ahead and that by hoiaing the primaries in June it -would only add , to the trouble caused by an -oarly prjmary fight by prolonging tho campaign. The last gubernatorial campaign, is pointed to' as an instance of the trouble caused' by early action. Hint of Independent Hill." In case the commission does not come forward with its bills nt an early date, it is said that a bill to change tho date of tho primaries from June to September will be put in from independent sources.

This week a number of commis sions and committees in charge of bills will meet to frame their legis lation. Most of these bills will come In very soon after tho committees aro named on the 18th.
