MRS. ELLA GILLON MAKES IT
FROM cAltHOTS, BEANS,
PARSNIPS AND POTATOES.
"If you are left alone, you like to
be doing something. I can't go out,
you see. I have been very lame;
lnce my husband died last October
a year ago," said Mrs. Ella Gillon,
1414 Spring street, whose husband,
a veteran of the late Civil war, died
last October a year ago, three
months after they hnd left their
home In New York City to come to
honesdale In a vain search of health,
Wednesday afternoon, when a Cltl
jien man called to see, taste and
learn all about the wonderful can
dies she has been making out of
"I have been making very nice
andles," she modestly admitted. "I
am a person that thinks If some
thing can be done I go and do It.
I feel lost out here. I feel like I
was hid under a bushel. My hus
band came here because he was 111.
He got here last July a year ago
And died October 18.
The reporter extended his sym
jathy. Mrs. Gillon In response to
the question as to how she made
.the candles out of vegetables, said:
"I'll tell you what 1 make It out
of. But I won't tell you how l
"Don't you think It looks nice?"
he asked pointing to a dish of can
iy she called "P. N. cream." I can't
sell that for less than a ?1 a pound
"Hero's somo "Boston Cream L."
Try that. See if you can tell what
The reporter 'tried' the candy but
admitted that he couldn't .guess
what the Ingredients were. '
"Ain't you a reporter," she
laughed, and you don t know
beans when you eat them?
"They're things you eat every day
f your life nearly. Ain't they good
"They're fine," jtho reporter
tumbled between bites.
"That's 'Boston Cream M.,'
pointing out another variety. "An
idea struck me sometime ago I
ould make candy out of these
things. Do you like these as well
as the other?
The reporter who had been
"sampling" a number of kinds of
andy tried to beg off on the plea
f having eaten a hearty dinner.
"This is only desert," she smil
ingly insisted. "Vegetables always
so down with dinner.
"Hero is another kind of candy,
made out of common carrots. They
-are carrot color. Look! There's
some others, made of white carrots.
(They looked to the reporter like
"Horo is P. N. plain.' P. N
stands for parsnips," she explained.
"I couldn't really afford to make
these for less than a ?1 a pound.
I made these just before Easter. I
made two kinds out of parsnips,
two out of Irish potatoes. Would
you think that was Irish potatoes?
And this Is lima beans, and this
marrow fat beans. B. N. is a good
ame for it because Bostonians like
"If anyone made this candy and
know how carefully I had to work
with it, they'd want more than a
dollar. You can only make a little
at a time. Now horo Is carrot cream
and that kind Is made out of pop
corn." The reporter was rather Inquisi
tive as to where she got her Idea of
making candy out of vegetables,
whether she had ever heard about It
r read of It.
"It came to mo like other things
did," insisted Mrs. Gillon. "I have
.all the receipts In my head.
"I belong to the G. A. It. circle. I
just Joined. I haven't been able to
go out much. I am very lame since
my husband died.
"I live on vegetables mostly. I
am no hand to eat candy. I eat
very little meat. I had an idea that
candy would bo good if made out of
Mrs. Gillon exhibited a number of
articles of fancy work which she
had made during odd moments.
There were necklaces mado out of
apple pits, olive pits, plum pits,
mushmolon seeds, chlnaberries that
fame from Oklahoma. There were
scented necklaces, made of allspice,
:loves and citron. Others were made
"Whatever my hands find to do I
do with all my might," she paren
Mrs. Gillon showed the reporter
wonderful things made out of fish
gills: Easter wreaths, lilies, etc. She
took a lily mado of fish gills, and her
-nimble fingers In a moment changed
it to a fleurdolls. "Now If you wait
a moment, I'll give you a tulip," and
Instanteously her dextrous fingers
wrought the transformation.
"There's a hat crown made out
of duck feathors. I had to look over
about fifteen pounds of duck feath
ers to get enough to make that hat

THEE I1HOKEN; NOBODY
A pair of Canadian horses, hitched
to a farmer's handy wagon, driven
by Stephen Kegler and Oren Keg
ler, Prompton, took fright Wednes
day afternoon at an automobile
coming up behind them, and dash
ed down Main street at a furious
gait. Oren Kegler was thrown in
to the body of the wagon, clutching
one lino, while Stephen Kegler, hat
blown off, managed to keep hold of
the other line, nnd retain his seat.
In front of Lewis B. Swingle's fur
niture hospital, 033 Main street,
the horses suddenly veered to the
left and dashed Into the corner of
the building. Barring a broken
whlffletree, and a badly-banged up
store corner, no damages resulted.
"We'll try It again," cheerfully
remarked Stephen Kegler, as he
clambered aboard after the team
had been hooked up to a new
whlffletree. Mr. Kegler has been
in runaways before, and he knows
how to take them philosophically.

to Grade Sunday
GOOD ADVICE ON THIS DIFFI
CULT PROBLEM, AS WELL
AS ON THE MATTER OF
THE HOME DEPART
We are in trouble in our Sunday
school. Have tried to arrange pu
pils In graded classes but many do
not wish to leave old classes. What
would you do?
The difficulty which you have met
is by far the greatest problem In
grading a school. It Is very hard
for a stranger not acquainted with
conditions to help you. We can,
perhaps, make a few suggestions
along general lines.
In the first place get the hearty
co-operation of every teacher In
your school. Talk to them of the
plan and point out the many ad
vantages. If they are really Inter
ested In their work, they will see
that they can do much more with
graded classes. It is only natural
that teachers prefer certain pupils
especially those whom they have
taught for a long time but this Is
the Master's work. We are all work
ing for one great end and must be
willing to sacrifice.
When the teachers are interested
they should be able to bring pupils
to want the change. Of course It
Is not so easy to reason with pupils
as with teachers but by going care
fully they should be brought to see
the advantages of the plan.
It Is usually pupils who are near
ly old enough to enter the higher
grade who object to being left In
the old class. Take for instance a
girl now eight who will be nine
before promotion day, explain to her
that it will be only a short time un
til she will be old enough to join
her old class.
In case you are not able to get
the help of teachers or pupils do
not give up. Get the co-operation
of tho Primary teachers. It is not
usually hard to get the smaller pu
pils to go in classes as you want
them. If you begin with the first
grades and see to it that all new
pupils who enter are assigned to
their proper classes, you will In a
few years have a graded school.
We hope that you will not give
up, Remember you are in the
right. Educational processes are
slow and all wo can do sometimes
Is to smile, keep sweet, and pray on.
You have tho prayers of all the
workers for the success of your

F. J. Hunkele, White Mills,
Falls Under Horse
TRAMPLED AND BRUISED, BUT
ESCAPES SERIOUS INJURY;
SAVED BY GLASS CUTTERS.
F. J. Hunkele, the White Mills
huckster, whose home last Novem
ber was tho scene of a doublo trag
edy, when his two sons came to
their deaths in a mysterious manner,
narrowly escaped being killed Wed
nesday shortly after twelve o'clock,
In front of Heuinann's restaurant. A
balky horse, hitched to a covered
wagon, took fright at the puffing of a
D. & H. engine standing at tho sta
tion across the street, reared, threw
him out of the wagon and fell on
"Get hold of that horse's head!"
shouted a bystander with rare pres
ence of mind. Five or six glasscut
ters near by jumped at the horse,
which was all tangled up In the
broken shafts, and pulled him off tho
unfortunnte driver, who was covered
from head to foot with mud.
"There's no chance for a Dutch
man In this world," exclaimed
Hunkele as soon as he could catch
his breadth. Mr. Hunkele took his
narrow escape good-naturedly, and
live minutes afterwards was carrying
sausages Into a customer's house,
just as if nothing had happened.
It appears that he had the same
thing happen to him down at Haw
ley the week before. A young fol
low who was with him, and who
tried to hold the horse's head re
marked that "he came from Connec
ticut and didn't know anything
All the same it was a close shave
for the man from Whlto Mills, who
Is rather inclined to think that this
Is a poor country for Dutchmen, any

Woodmen's Annual Dinner
a Huge Success
ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL
AFFAIRS WHITE MILLS
Saturday evening, April 22, 1911,
witnessed one of the most pleasant
events that has ever taken place in
tho social life of Whlto Mills. Camp
No. 10459 of the Modern Woodmen
ht-ld their annual banquet at "Wood
men Hall," formerly "Florence
Theatre," and a most successful
event it was.
About 200 guests were present.
Among the out-of-town guests were
noticed Dr. Stein,' Scranton, and
from Honesdale, Hon. Alonzo T.
Searlo, C. A. Garratt, Esq., Herbert
Hiller, Ed Jenkins, Joseph Jacobs,
Rev. Whittaker, and Win. Gumpper.
The programme was started off
in an interesting manner by Prof.
A. H; Howell, who stated that the
people would receive four times
their money's worth in entertain
ment; and then he began to demon
strate and to prove that statement
himself and by reason of his tact and
courtesy ho proved himself the- man
for the occasion as chairman of the
The entertainment might be said
to be a combination of all that Is
good and worth while in all forms
of entertainment. First of all it was
a banquet; second it was theatrical;
third, it was an entertainment;
fourth, It was a meeting for tho con
sideration of ponderous thought. In
deed, such a combination of wit, and
wisdom, foolishness nnd philosophy
has raroly if ever been equalled in
The orchestra played and Mr.
Howell announced the vocal duet
which was well rendered. This was
followed by a declamation by Joseph
Jacobs, Jr., which was appreciated
by all. Mr. Jacobs Is an able elocu
tionist and his strong voice serves
Mr. Howell then Introduced the
world-famou entartalnor, Malcolm
Thackleford, who sang a few well
chosen songs and entertained the
company with a dramatic Impersona
tlon of a court house scene in Vir
ginia. Nothing could be more realis
tic than this. His imitation of the
nanner of the judge and tho de
meanor of tho prisoners was perfect.
It seems he verily thinks the
thoughts of tho characters he per
sonates In order to say their words.
The next speaker to be presented
to the audience was the National
Lecturer, E! Burns, who talked for
some time on the necessity of fra
ternity and brotherhood and of the
benefit to be derived from associa
tions of that kind. Ho is an ablo
and fluent speaker and used many
funny stories for illustration.
The orchestra played and then
supper was announced and the two
hundred guests were seated at the
Tho orchestra played again and
then the Hon. Alonzo T. Searle was
announced to be the next speaker.
Mr. Searle was In a reminiscent
mood and related many Interesting
events In the lives of former mem
bers of tho Wayne county bar. He
told a number of well-selected stories
to emphasize his points.
In all it was quite a remarkable
address. Among the many senti
ments which he loft with us these
are recalled as being full of worth
and worthy of a place In the mem
ory: "It is easy enough to smile
When life goes along with n song,
But tho man who is worth while
Is tho man who can smile
When everything goes dead
"There Is so much bad In the best
And so much good In the worst of
That it does not behoove any of us
To talk about the rest of us."
This was followed by tho quartette
composed by Mrs. G. Lilijqulst, Miss
Kstner Folk, Joseph Folk and Fred
erick Bellman. They rendered their
part so well that they wore called
back on an encore.
Next C. A. Garratt, Esq., Hones
dale, was announced who In a few
well-directed remarks told tho audi
ence that ho had watched the pro
gress of the White Mills Woodmen
association from its Inception, direct
ed its movements, organization and
has since regarded Us achievements
with consideration and gratification.
Then Dr. Stein, Scranton, was
called. Ho told many interesting
and appropriate stories and acquitted
himself favorably with the audience.'
'Mr. Edward Shelly then told some
interesting stories, saying that he
regarded all tho jokes of tho evening
dealing with the mother-in-law as a
personal insult and that her cause
should be taken up and defended.
This he called retaliation or some
now form of reciprocity.
Ed. Jenkins was then noticed in
tho audience and Mr. Skelly called
upon him to speak. Mr. Jenkins re
sponded ably and well to tho tall.
The next number of tho program
was announced amid a burst of en
thusiasm. When the applause sub
sided Mr. Shockford again took up
his evening entertainment in his
inimitable way. This time he
gave an Imitation of our Indian war
dance and a Chinese theatre. These
aro superb features or his entertain
ment. This was followed by some
numerous songs and comic recitations.
