Tho country Is tilled with "Uct-rlch-quick
schemes." Krom the
good old days when you could secure
a "wntcli for nothing" by paying 91
for a year's subscription to tbo "Po
dunk Register und Kccordcr."
"Wbut fools these mortals be," ex
claims Puck, and wo uro rather in
clined to believe lie knew what ho
was talking about. "Get money, no
matter how you get it, just ho you
get it" is the motto of u largo per
centage of tho men and women in
this world to-day.
And there is u renson for tlds
frenzied and frantic rush for wealth.
For money to-day, as never before,
pells "power." How few ricli
men after all are in prison, regard
less of tho means by which they ac
quired their great fortunes. Look
at tho unfair sentences so ninny
criminals rcccivo in tho largo cities.
If a poor man stenls a loaf of bread,
or a pint bottle of milk, ho goes to
jail for six months ; while if a rich
man steals a million ho sometimes
goes to Congress. Wo are not cre
ated "equal." Frco wo are, hut
Tho best place for a poor man's
savings is a llnnk, even if ho only
draws three per cent, interest. It's
safe, and ho can get nt it -whenever
ho wants it. llewaro of all schemes
that promise to double your money
in ilvo years! It can bo done but
not with safety! Shun all glitter
ing prospectuses that offer you Hal
tering rates of interest! Shut your
eyes to those beautifully printed
circular letters offering mining
stocks for sale for "next to noth
ing!" Above nil, save nil tho mon
ey you cuu, while you uro nblo to
work, and if a legitimate proposi
tion offering a fair return for your
investment comes along, take it, but
Ilrst consult .some business man, of
unimpeachable integrity, in whom
you have implicit conlidence. Even
then, it might be just as well to
talk the matter oer with your wife
and perhaps, better still to pray

Tho Philadelphia papers havo been
devoting considerable space to ac
counts of the testimony given at the
hearing In tho Dauphin County
court of tho attorney general's pro
ceedings to dissolve tho Keystone
Guard. One of our prominent
citizens figured In tho case, and tes
tified freely as to his connection
with tho company. Pending further
developments in tho matter, wo are
willing to accept Prof. H. A. Oday's
statement to us as to bis connection
nltli the company. Ho said:
"Wo were acting under tho
advico of counsel. Wo had a
right to sell our own positions,
providing tho money didn't
como out of tho Keystone
Guard, and it didn't. The
money was paid before the se
curities were turned overt"
STEGNER'S Offerings of Fish Food During Lent
A word regarding quality.
In quoting prices herein we
have put them as low as possi
ble considering quality.
Each and every fish we quote
is positively fresh and we guar
antee them to be the best ob
tainable. We do not handle small size
packages of any kind of salt fish
for the simple reason that the
smaller the package the more
the fish cost per pound, owing
to the extra cost of small kegs
In quoting Fresh Fish it
would be impossible to name
prices owing to market fluctua
tions. We dress and deliver all fish

"Wo don't have that kind of poli

That is undoubtedly true. Tho piny
certainly was a startling expose of
tho political game as played in the
grent cities, and was very well re
ceived by tho fair-sized audience
who were present to enjoy it.

JUST A WORD IN PASSING.
There are ways of doing things;
and other ways. Over in Honesdale
last week, tho court was trying the
Carl Howe case, which had been
transferred to Wayne county with
the compliments of the Lackawanna
judges. It had been aired three
times In tho Lackawanna county
court, and was full of nastlness, as
any one who has followed the re
ports of any of the four trials can
testify. The ladies of Honesdale.
who havo a commendable interest
In the pretty little Maple City, as
evidenced by their Village Improve
ment society, known tho country
over, hastened to get Into corres
pondence with the editors of the
three Honesdale papers, and urge
that the aforesaid editors suppress
the unsavory details of the case, so
that the youthful mind might not bo
polluted or lead to dwell on evil
things by reading the salacious 'tes
timony that was bound to be given.
It was a thoughtful action on the
part of the prudent parents, even If
some satirical persons may suggest
that the Scranton papers havo a
large circulation in Honesdale, and
that the adult population was
bound to have a chance to get a peep
at the details, If they wanted It.
And now gentle reader what do
you suppose those three Honesdale
editors did about it. One of them,
the Herald, which by the way, re
flects a very sane and conservative
mind, under the new regime, told
the ladies that they need not fear,
the Herald would have nothing to
do with the putrid details; nor did
it. THE CITIZEN, came out with a
hotspur editorial, indignant and very
much up on its dignity, about the
people attempting to dictate how the
editor should run his paper, and in
cidentally giving a preachment, like
Editor Bok, of Philadelphia, Is wont
to do, on the tilings to toll children,
and the duties of mothers toward
the adolescent youth. A line bit of
"get back," and an indication, one
would think, that tho trial was to
be served up piping hot to tho read
ers of THE CITIZEN and no odds
asked of anybody. Was it? Hard
ly. THE CITIZEN had big head
lines, that whetted interest, to be
sure, but the subject matter was
very conservatively constructed, and
not calculated to shock anybody. In
fact we can imagine some readers,
even vlth prudish proclivities, wish
ing that THE CITIZEN reporter had
not left so much to be read between
tho lines. Forest City News.
