BEAD AM) SEE HONEST YOUNG
MAN, LATH OK GEHMANA,
FINDS LOST 1'OCKETBOOK,
AND THHHEBY MEETS FAIR
That "truth Is stranger than no
tion," is shown by this tale of how a
splendid young fellow, who came
from Germany to America less than
a year ago, bringing his "honesty"
with him, found a lost pockotbook,
returned It to the owner, and there
by met a fair young lady. The
Father of the girl related the story
to a CITIZEN man In these words:
"My daughter and her cousin came
home from store Saturday night. It
was snowing gently, and the walking
was treacherous. She fell on the
ce; It dazed her a little; she slid her
Lead along; not just a solid crack.
They picked up their bundles and
camo into the house. Nothing came
of it. She slept pretty good.
"On Sunday afternoon in walks a
itranger a young man and he
sks mo In broken English, 'If I
wasn't Mr. So and So?' He hauls
out of his pocket a portmanteau and
too said 'if I knew this?" 'Yes, it
was my wife's or daughter's.
"Well," he says, "I found this In
front of the house." "That's my
laughter's," I said.
"We called her. So she gave him
x little reward, but he woiildn t take
it. My wife made a unch for him.
Tiie gins went up to tue lunerui. ""
Iio must take the money, said my
daughter and get himself cigars. "It
was nothing," he said, "but what he
expected anyone would do for him.
Ho wouldn't keep that money for
tho world" so he wasn't going to
take it. Finally she insisted on it.
Host every young man smokes. He
said he'd take it, but he wouldn't
spend it for cigars, but would buy
a keepsake to remember no nau
found good people and friends.
"He was very honest. Only eight
months in this country. Ho speaks
English very well.
"There was ?0 or ?7 in tho pocket-book
her wages. She gets paid
every two weeks. She never know
anything about her pocket book un
til he camo with it. Ho found it
right In front of tho house.
"I think he is a pretty honest
aliap. He could have kept that and
nobody would ever have found It
out. I thought it ought to bo men
tioned. It only goes to show that
everybody Isn't bad.
"He blushed terribly when my
daughter came down. He's a nice
young chap. You could see he was
brought up all right."

Zion Lutheran church at Jones
town, quarantined for diphtheria
lnco February 8, was fumigated last
Thursday by tho Board of Health of
that town aftor a fight that for a
time divided the citizens of the place
and threatened legal complications.
The trouble at Jonestown was car

Health which some days ago notified
tho Jonestown Board of Health to
fumigate the place of worship. For
sentimental reasons the local Board
refused to break into tho church

doors of tho church, this being done
on Wednesday of last week. Bev.
Mr. Leinbach Is tho pastor of St

Tho town took sides and argued
that because Thomas AVInklobleck

SCHOOL, LAST SATURDAY IN
Tho teachers of AVhlte Mills,

their Institute at Hawley High
School Saturday, February 18. It
was called to order at 10 o'clock.
After a song, devotional exorcises
were conducted by tho Bev. B. P.
Blpley. A. II. Howell was then
elected chairman. Miss Orrle Bolll
son gave a talk on "Essentials In
Primary Beading." "Every teach

Miss Eleanor D. Gill, who spoke on
tho "Seventh and Eighth Grade
"Three of the problems: How to
get practical work? How to keep
children in school? What to teach
and how to teach so that pupils may

feel free to ask questions." Others
discussed the subject aftor which
tho Institute adjourned until 2
The afternoon session opened with
a Children's Chorus which was very
good. Then County Superintendent
J. J. Koehler talked on the "Prob
lems of Seventh and Eighth Grades."
"In history get pupils to read books
that have connection with the les

Miss Edith N. Freed read a very
well-nrepared paper on, "Vocal mu

joyed by all. '
"Human voice has no equal in its
productions of music. Everyone may
be taught to sing."

"Athletics in High School," was
taken up by Chas. E. Martz in a
very able manner. Ho considers the
school a factory where raw material
is brought and that it turns out tho

STATE RANKERS' ASSOCIA
TION, URGING ISSUE OF BONDS
TO AMOUNT OF $50,000,000.
Harrisburg, Feb. 22. Governor
Tener, in an address delivered to
night at the annual banquet of
Group 5, of the Pennsylvania State
Bankers' Association, spoke empha
tically In favor of a state bond Issue
of $50,000,000 for the construction
of a system of good roads to make
Pennsylvania's highways the best In
Tho governor's declaration follow
ed tho lines of his Inaugural and is
significant in view of recent discus
sion of ways of financing the pro
ject embraced In the Sproul good
roads bill. In addition to favoring
this view tho governor said that he
desired to see the bonds sold as need
ed. Governor Tener said:
" As bankers, you will undoubted
ly bo interested In a bill now pend
ing which provides for the planning
and construction of a complete state
wide road system. It is proposed In
this bill that the state create a bond
ed Indebtedness of $50,000,000; tho
proceeds of which are to be used ex
clusively for road building.
"AVhlle It Is very creditable to be
able to say that tho 'state has no In
debtedness, I am sure you will agree
with mo that It Is no proud claim
while our roads remain In the almost
Impassible conditlonof to-day. If wo
apply to road construction and road
improvement only such amounts as
can consistently be spared from the
ordinary revenues of the state for
that purpose, none of us here will
live to see good roads connecting
county seats throughout the state.
"As a business proposition, I am
quite sure you will agree with me,
should authority bo given for the Is
suance of the proposed bonds, It
would not bo wise to negotlato tho
entire Issue and deposit tho money
received from that source In the sev
eral state depositories at a less rate
of Interest than tho bonds draw and
good business practice would sug
gest, and so I would recommend
that only so many of the bonds would
be sold from time to time as would
bo necessary to meet tho annual es
timates of the engineers. Or, if tho
whole issue can be sold to a better
advantage at one time, then tho pur
chasers must agree to a delivery on
this basis. The creation of this debt
would not directly Increase' the taxes
of any individual in the state, and a
sinking fund could bo provided and
tho bonds eventually retired without
working a hardship on any of our
people. Pennsylvania is woefully
