TO PRESERVE TREES

Mlss Dora Conger has started a
campaign for Improving tho condi-
tion of the trees. Sho wants the co-
operation of everybody In Honesdale.

times used the term ourselves, with '
of trees which arch our streets with
cool green vaulting, from springtime

"Though Nature, by tho Cliff on
tho one side, and by the gently-
sloping hills on the other, has limit-1
ed Honesdale as to possibilities or
growth, she has, In those same bar
riers, provided Its most attractive
features. Archltectually, man has
done but little for the town. There
are but few buildings which can
boast of graco or dignity, nnd wero
it not for the surrounding heights
were the place but a flat expanse,
thero would be, to redeem it from
the commonplaceness of a thousand
such villages, nothing but that which
Naturo aud Man together have giv
en us the green open space which is

"Our ancestors, who planted those
trees, must have hiuWtlic good, and
the beauty of their homo deep in
their hearts, and wo have reaped tho
beneflt of their thought and work.
But Is that all we are going to do?
Think what our town would bo
without Its trees a dreary habita
tion indeed and that is a possibility
which we may have to face, unless
something Is done at once, to pre

Limbs have been lopped off as was
thought necessary, regardless ,of, or
in ignorance of the proper method
for the tree's preservation. A limb,
severed, leaving a part on the tree
to give an opening for decay, spells
eventual death for tho entire tree.
A wound, improperly treated, or
witli no attempt at all of a healing
dressing, means that the life-blood of
tho tree flows away, and its strength
"This is not Imagination It Is a
very present menacing condition
which has been observed by one
whoso business it is to know of such
things. Unless we wish to become
a town of dreary, barren streets, we
will use such foresight as had those
who gave us our beautiful trees, and
take Immediate measures for their
conservation. Even at this season
of the year, an examination will show
that thero are many dead branches
on trees, which should be healthy.
Honcsdnlo Improvement Association
Receives Check For $15.
"Mrs. A. B. Heine, of Now York,
who has the welfare of tho town at
heart, has already sent a check for
$15 to bo used for tho cause, and it
is to bo hoped that we may all bo
aroused to tho necessity of immedi
ate Interest nnd action.
Mrs. Holne says: "Tho citizens of
Honesdale ought to take enough
pride in their town to look after the
trees, for Honesdale without trees
would be like a beautiful bird shorn
of his feathers. One begins to real
ize and appreciate what the First
Comers did for the town, when they
laid it out and planted the rows of
beautiful trees. I am afraid the
present generation has not the pride
and affection for the old town that
tho past generations had. However,
I see the Improvement society is do
ing a great deal to keep up the
proper interest in the town. I en
close a check for this purpose."
Wear Good Clothes and Laugh at tho
O sage," said tho young man,
"I am surprised, almost grieved, to
find that one who has such a repu
tatlon for wisdom as you should
pay so much attention to his clothes.
You aro as Immaculate and as
nobby as a young lover."
"And why not?" asked the elder
"Why not, Indeed?" rejoined the
young man. "I am afraid I cannot
explain. Many people have told me
it is foolish to pay so much atten
tlon to clothes. That's all I know.'
"It Is a common error," spoke the
sage, "but it is nevertheless an er
ror and one which once possessed
me. When I was young as you aro
I was attracted by the extornal
things only, and of these external
things clothes wero by far the most
important. When I was a little old
er I underwent a reaction. I had
a revulsion of feeling. Somehow I
gained the idea that clothes wero
an absurdity In toto. I thought that
the Inner spiritual man was every
thing. According as my thoughts
became introspective I neglected my
external appearance and went about
unkempt and slovenly.
''The two extremes," suggested
the young man discerningly.
"Yes, tho two extremes, but with
neither alone was I happy. With
out clothes I found I could not go
among my fellows In comfort, and
thus tho social side of me became
atrophied. Without knowledge und
an Inward appreciation of the Im
portant fundamentals of llfo I could
not bo happy In my own company."
"Wherefore," observed the young'
man, "you struck a happy medium I
, by compromising on both." I
MORE THAN MONEV NEEDED IN
PURCHASING A HOME.
Legal Routine In HuyliiR House
Mndo Clenr To tlio Lny Mind.
The numorous legal requirements
In taking tltlo to a house are liable
to bewilder tho average person who
is contemplating the purchase of a
home! There is .however, a regular
process, which, while appearing very
complicated, is in reality a simple
legal method for perfecting his tltlo
to tho property.
In tho purchase of a home the av-
erage method Is somewhat like the
"following, according to tho Altoona
Mirror. Tho person having selected
price Is determined upon. The next
of financing tho purchase. When
all this is Bettlcd an agreement of
sale Is prepared in which Is specif!
cally set forth, the purchase prlco
and the manner In which the mort
gages are to be provided for. These
agreements are signed by the owner
and purchaser, and usually provide
for settlement within 30 or GO days.
It is customary to make a deposit
of either $100 or $200 at the time of
signing the agreement and this
amount is, of course, deducted from
the amount to be paid when settle
ment Is effected.
Preparing Tho Papers.
As soon as this portion of tho
agreement is completed tho prepara
tion of the deed and mortgages, the
taking out of titlo Insurance and the
investigation of tho title begins. The
Issuing of title insurance is the great
est safeguard to the purchaser, as on
the payment of a stipulated amount
the purchaser Is given a guarantee,
backed up by any of the big trust
companies, to protect him from loss
if It at any time In tho future a flaw
In tho titlo Is discovered. For that
reason no purchase of a home should
be made unless thero Is provision for
After all these preliminaries are
completed a day for settlement is
agreed upon, and when the pur
chaser presents himself, either at his
lawyers' office or that of the build
er or at a trust company, he gets
his first insight into the legal re
quirements of a real estate transac
tion. If, for Illustration, he has
purchased a home for $3500, on
which he is to pay $500 in cash, the
balance, to be secured by a first mor
tgage for $2000 and a second one
for $1000, it will be necessary for
him to sign two mortgages and two
This is where he will get his flrst
shock, because if he is a careful man
the complicated phraseology will be
apt to confuse him, especially so far
as the bonds are concerned, because
in reading these documents lie will
discover that he declares himself
firmly bound unto the mortgagee
(the person who loans the money)
In the sum of $4000 on the flrst
mortgage and $2000 on the second
mortgage, although further down In
tho same documents is the prevision
that on the payment of either $2,-
uuu or $1,000 the obligation shall be
These legal Instruments are only a
relic of olden days, but aro still used
and the purchaser need not concern
himself about the matter, as he will
only be obliged to pay the amount of
the mortgage and not the amount
that he holds himself responsible for
in the bond.
After these papers are signed the
actual settlement takes place when

tho purchaser will pay tho amount
agreed upon, plus rent for tho bal
ance of the year, and tho cost of
preparing the papers as well as the
tltlo insurance costs. After all the
formalities are completed tno uocu
ments are taken to the recorder ot
deeds and copied verbatim into the
deed and mortgago books, where
they remain as permanent records.
Tho Final Transaction.
In from four to six weeks the
deeds and mortgages aro ready for
delivery, when the purchaser will re
ceive his deed, while the owner of
tho mortgages will receive those pa
pers and retain them until such time
as they are paid off, when the satis
faction or payment of tho mortgage
Is noted by the recorder In tho same
books where the mortgage 1b enter
ed of record.
In creating first mortgage the time
limit is usually from one to live
years, but the owner of a homo with
a mortgago against it need never
worry about the tlmo of Its expira
tion, because as long as ho pays his
Interest he need not have any fear
of it being called in, as investments
of this kind are very desirable, usu
ally paying 5 4-10 per cent, interest.

plication will be made to the Gov
ernor of Pennsylvania on April 4,
