That personal, work is fully as Im

night, when the auditorium of the

church was filled to overflowing with
:i large congregation of men, women
,and children who enmo in response
to the invitations sent out by Chas.
Edwards, General Superintendent of
tho Pocono Mountain Branch of the
Mountain Ico Company.
In addition to having charge of the
important local Interests of tho
Mountain Ico Company, whose prin
cipal ofilco is at 51 Newark street,
Hobokon, N. .1., and of which 11. V.
Bahrenburg, Newark, N. .1., 13 presi
dent and general manager, and E.
P. Kingsbury, Scranton. secretary
and treasurer, Mr. Edwards takes a
deep Interest in the religious wel
faro of tho community in which he
lives. He is a member of the Board
of Trustees of tho Methodist Epis
copal church, of which Rev. P. S.
Lehman is tho successful pastor.
Rev. Lehman, by the way, is serving
his second year as pastor of this
nourishing charge, having been re
turned again this year by the super
intendent of tho Scranton district,
Rev. L. C. Murdock, D. D.
Mr. Edwards, besides asking
scores of peopio personally to at
tend a meeting in his church Wed
nesday evening, sent out the fol
lowing personal letter to a large
number of his friends and acquaint
ances: "Gouldsboro, Pa.,
Wednesday evening, April
26th, we aro going to have a
meeting In our church and 1
have promised our minlstor to
fill tho church on this evening
and I would liko very much
to have you present on this oc
casion. Hoping you will bo
able to seo your way clear to
bo with us on this evening I
Signed CHAS. EDWARDS."
Superintendent Edwards has ac
quired tho reputation of making a
success out of whatever he under
takes, and ho believes In applying
business methods to religious af
fairs, Ho camo to Gouldsboro somo
years ago from a placo In Jersey
called Waterloo, There ho succeed
ed in tho face of tremendous ob
stacles, such as rain, indifference
etcetera in filling the little Metho
dist church one Sunday. The pas
tor, on that memorable occasion,
was not let into the secrot, and so
when one Sunday ho was greeted by
a sea of expectant and smiling
faces, he was so overcome for the
moment that he could not spenk.
It is said however that ho quickly
regained his wonted composure, and
delivered ono of the finest sermons
ever heard in that church.
It Is certain that on Wednesday
evening Rev. Lehman rose to the oc
casion and spoke with even more
than his customary fervor and elo
quence. For tho little Methodist
church, locatod 2100 feet above sea
level, on ono of the loftiest spurs of
the Poconos, Is not a one family
church, neither is It governed by a
boss, With characteristic Motho-
dlstlc equality all aro permitted to
take part in tho work of the JlaBter

It was a great crowd that as
sembled In that cosy edifice on that
night. And needless to Bay there

that, thoy all left feeling that It
was good to have been there.

DREHER, Pa., April 27 With
so much dull weather that Is adverse
to farming, It Isn't any wonder that
the aveiage farmer feels a trlile blue,
but It will be more congenial by and
by, or we hope it will. No spring
ploughing done, no oats sowed and
the ground is too soft and wet to
even repair fence. It will soon be
six months since we began feeding
stock in the stable and the prospect
for pasture is not encouraging. Our
weatherman says, "Just wait until
April 28," the date of tho eclipse,
and then we'll have better weather
and I guess we'll wait.

To.Mr. E. A. DORFLIftlGER,
It will showjyou that the 1911 model Jackson
advertised in Scranton papers at 1-2 price by the
of Philadelphia, are absolutely fakes.
Mr. E. A. Dorflinger,
White Mills, Pa.
In reference to the advertising being run by the GORSON AUTOMOBILE
CO. of Philadelphia, where they advertise 191 1 Jackson cars, we wish to assure you
that this is absolutely a fake and that there is no truth whatever in the statements
which they make. The facts of this case are that they never had any correspondence
with the JACKSON AUTOMOBILE CO.; never bought any cars from them and
these machines that they have were purchased from the FULLER BUGGY CO. and
were made up from scraps which the FULLER BUGGY CO. had left over last year
when they decided to discontinue making automobiles. Any one who examines these
cars closely will discover at once that they are assembled from a scrap pile as practi
cally every engine is different and there are no two cars exactly alike. The FUL
LER BUGGY CO. had quite an accumulation of this junk and rather than throw it
away they had the opportunity of making it up into cars and selling it to GORSON.
GORSON is taking advantage of the fact that MR. G. A. MATTHEWS is a large
stockholder in both the JACKSON AUTOMOBILE CO. and FULLER BUGGY
CO. and also of the fact that the JACKSON CO. did make cars last year similar to
the cars made by the FULLER CO.
We would say however, that any one who purchases one of these cars will get
badly stung because, as stated above, they are made out of scraps and have no guaran
tee whatever attached to them. The JACKSON CO, will prosecute GORSON for
advertising these cars as JACKSON'S as they are certainly misrepresenting this
matter. THE JACKSON AUTOMOBILE CO. HAVE NOT ANY SURPLUS
STOCK and you need not be alarmed .that they, ever will have. They are one of the
best companies in business to-day and are very strong financially. They are also
conservative and will never manufacture '. more cars than they can dispose of at regu
lar list prices.
Very truly yours,
JACKSON MOTOR CO.
Although advertised as genuine, they are not Jackson cars. They
are made from scraps.
