"Just to let them know that wo
wasn't all trying to turn them down,"
said Henry Martin, Winwood, a
grand juror to a reporter for THE
CITIZEN, "the boys got together
and chipped In money to give the
prisoners a general Christmas. L.
"Van Dcusen, Dyberry, and I were ap
pointed a committee to buy tho
things. Sheriff Braman and I gave
them the things.
"Tears came to their eyes when
we presented the things to them. It
will certainly throw a different light
on them. It naturally would cheer
any one up. We got oranges,
grapes, nuts, candy, handkerchiefs
and cigars. We gave them a gener

of candy and a nice handkerchief to
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.

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
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.

among the leaders capture one of
these ballots and "Cinch" the Com
panionship Tour. The winners of

until the last weok of the contest, but
will be mailed direct to the lucky
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
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.

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.

The Citizen Publishing Company
wants the candidates who have work
ed to win tho tours and prizes, and
this announcement Is made with the
idea of taking the affair out of the
hands of the candidates who may
wish to spend their own money.
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.

votes can be voted per week, above
the leader in the district until Jan.

Tho First Mondny of Septem
ber. Harrlsburg, Pa. 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
bill will do no more than make a
change in the date.
Tho election commission may be
continued by the next Legislature in
case it cannot complete its bills. The
plan is to get the bills which It Is In
tended to pass presented to the Leg
islature before the apportionment
bills come In.
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.
