WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 1011. It often happens that some of the old ruins In England arc marriageable. AAA Some young college graduates go to work and others enter the electrical business. OH Colorado has only one 'Senator, but .If he should turn out like some others' we wot of he'd be one too many. AAA : The Baltimore Sun says Baltimore Is the best town in the country. Well, yes, after Honesdale, It does come first. AAA "Really, I have not thought about the Presi dency," says Woodrow Wilson. Probably takes it for granted, we suppose. 0 00 "One hundred thousand dollars," says an ex change, "takes a man a long ways in Illinois." Or any other state for that matter. 0 0 0 The optimist is like the dog, who, with a tin can tiedto his. tail, tells his brother canines that it's jewelry. 0 0 0 Dr. Maude Glasgow says that the best way to get a good figure is not to think about it. And judging from some we have seen, lots of women don't. 0 0 0 A Pittsburg jalntress has received $100 from Mrs. Carnegie because she hid In some palms on the stage to hoar Andy speak. We always had a vague Idea that it ought to be worth monoy to listen to Andy. 0 0 0 Prof. Wheeler, head of the department of organic chemistry of Yale, has gone to Chicago to raise the flOO.OOG he was ordered to pay his wife as alimony. Chicago is of some use after all. ooo "Her sangfroid was decidedly plquante," says the N. Y. World, In a story about a noted Philadelphia Beauty who strolled through one of the hotels in green tights. There's nothing like the French language af ter all, is tjiere? 0 0 0 It's easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows by like a song But the girl worth while is the girl who can smile When her harem is on all wrong. 0 0 0 The Surrey County Council has passed a by-law making it an offense to use bad language in a house so that it can be heard by passers-by. It is thought that this will give an Immense impetus to the movement in favor of sound-proof dwellings. London Punch. 0 0 0 The locomotive engineer who gave his sweetheart love toots on the whistle of the engine Is being sued for $5,000. One of tho signals agreed on was three short toots meaning "Marry you to-morrow." Ho didn't. Seems as if he'd changed it to that steamboat whistle in the song: "Toot toot, goodbye." 0 0 0 THE Flit ST NUMItEH OF THE ILLUSTRATED CONGItESSIONAli DIRECTORY. The .May edition o that sterling and standard publication, which no family should be without, the "Congressional DJrectory," greets our grateful eyes, says the New York Sun. Even in that time honored enclosure the feet of Progress may be heard to stamp. Since the January edition Art has found her way into this catlaogue of statesmen. There is a headpiece or two headpieces before each State beadroll of Sena tors and Representatives. What Is this picture? It It some dream of a dolphin and an anchor, an octopus and a hook? Is it snakes, serpent, on a shepherd's crook, reversed? Is it a vulture or reedblrd, ram pant, on a conventionalized golf stick? Is it swans "sleigh" bedsteds, inilated goatskins waving the right ear jovially? A work of wonder, what can it bo, this picture cut, we hear, by the Hon. James Reginald Mann of Chicago from an Illustrated pamphlet on hookworm? Is this tho way to please the plain people? Why, tho Hon. James Sansoving Henry, tho compiler, will be having the book adorned with miniatures and il luminations and printed in Victor Murdock red, anti reciprocity blue, hobson yellow and so on. Worse and worse, a photograph or water-colored sketch of each Senator and Representative wll lbe thrown in the face of tho country; the Mesopotamian mug of Uncle Joe, the dread deforested top of, Ollle James arrest or postpone that hour of woe, all kindly fates! So much for Art and Progress; now for' History. On page 149, "PersidentB and Vice-Presidents and the Congresses Coincident With Their Terms," occurs the name, of the Vice-President in tho Presidency of Franklin Pierce: "William B. King (died April IS, 1853)." Wo don't know when this erring "B" crept into the name of William Rufus King, thirteenth Vice President ( Representative in Congress from North Carolina, Senator in Congress from Alabama for more than thirty years, Minister to Franco. The 'error is not Mr. Henry's; it appears for instance In the Direc tory of tho Sixtieth Congress, second session, com piled by A. J. Halford. Mr. King may be reasonably obscure by this time, but an official publication of the United States ought to be able to give accurately the names of the Vice-Presidents. More correctness and less Art! Mayor Gaynor is likely to go broke if he keeps on with that ?10 drink offer. 0 0 0 Some war correspondents, it would seem, received all their training at home with their wives. 0 0 0 Tho appointment of Henry Lewis Stlmson to tho office of Secretary of War must come to that gentle man as the silver lining of the gubernatorial cloud. 0 0 0 We wish tho paragrapher on the Inquirer would lose that old joke about Haiti's navy. He's had it in slightly changed twice In tho last week or so. 0 0 0 The reason some women leave their hats on In the theatre Is because if they should hold them in their laps they couldn't see the stago themselves. 0 0 0 It is rumored that Lillian Russell Is going to marry an editor. Suppose because being a newspaper man he'll be able to supply the fair Lillian with lots of pads. 0 0 0 E. Phillips Oppenheim, tho writer, says that tho most important quality for a woman to possess Is a sense of humor. Most of them havo or they'd never get married. 0 0 0 Lady Decles, formerly Vivian Gould, is clieory after her successful operation for appendicitis. But the noble Lord isn't when he thinks of the bills to come in. 0 0 0 THE STANDARD OIL DECISION. A decision involving the great and Important results such as the one rendered Monday by the Su preme Court of the United States in ordering the dis solution of the Standard Oil Company cannot be treated offhand editorially or discussed In an Intelli gent manner until the text of the entire opinion of tho Chief Justice can bo read and studied with a view to comprehending its scope and tho momentous char acter of its meaning.. The Citizen will, therefore, refrain at this moment from treating the subject in Its editorial columns until such time has elapsed as will allow of a careful and conscientious deliberation upon all points of the decision. The question is one of too great magnitude to allow of too hasty editor ial comment. The Citizen asks that sufficient time bo given in order that the discussion of this decision may be treated In a manner worthy of the paper and its readers. 0 0 0 YOUR OPPORTUNITY.

"You could hear half the audience draw lu their breath when Loercher did some of those contortionist stunts," declared one of the leading lights among tho troupe composed of seventeen young Honesdale men In describing tho performance given nt Aldenville Friday night for the benellt of the Clinton township High school. It takes more than an early even ing thunder shower to dampen the ardor of an Aldenvlllo audience, and so when the curtain wont up Friday night on that hover to be urgot ten occasion tho spacious auditorium was jammed to the doors. Only one of the actors who shall be nameless, succeeded In uiawing an encore. There was no one "on the curtain" when John button con cluded his dramatic monologue. There was no water In the place, and tho performors ' had to go outside and wash In tho cold, cold water in tho brook, whero one of the players caught cold. Two kerosense lamps did service as footlights. One of the auditors every time Henry Wagner took a high note on the trombone, looked at the Instrument, as if he ex pected it to come apart. Barring tnese and seevral other minor discor dant notes, the minstrel benefit was a great success. Those participating in the affair were R. J. Bracey, Clarence Green, Joseph Jacobs, Thomas Charles worth, Will Kupfer, Louis A. Loom Is, Stanley Wilson, George Loercher, John Sutton, Jos. A. Bodle., Henry Wagner, A. Cole, Leon Katz, Walter Jeltz, Rex Nicholson, Claude Chase, Charles Jeitz. The program was as follows: PART I. "When The Heart's Behind A Kiss," Stanley Wilson "Mandy Lou" Louis A.

It has serv ed Its purpose. It can't' exist be cause it was a Democratic party primarily, and it can't exist now for there's no occasion for it." Mr. McCarty concluded his re markable lnterviow by saying that he had been practicing at the Wayno county uar since IS 85, having read law in Waller and Searle's offlce. Judge A. T.

The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there Is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure In all its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posi tive cure now known to tho medi cal fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional diseaso, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken Internally, acting directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces of tho system, thereby destroying the foundation of the diseaso, nnd giving the patient strength by building up the consti tution and assisting nature in doing Its work. The proprietors have bo much faith in its curative powers that they offer One Hundred Dollars for any case that it fails to cure. Send for list of testimonials. Address F. J. CHENEY & CO.. Toledo, O.

The pallbearers were: Ferdi nand Crockenberry, Hawloy; John Kerber, Cherry Ridge; William Art man, Anthony Mang, John Derbott, Michael J. Galvln, Honesdale. Catarrh is Surely a Dangerous Disease Thousands of people allow ca tarrh to slowly undermine the whole system until a serious disease de velops sometimes consumption. People who havo catarrh should use every effort to get rid of It, but snouia aDovo an adopt a sensible method. Stomach dosing, sprays and douches won't cure catarrh because It Is a germ disease, and the germs must bo destroyed before the dis ease can be conquered. HYOMEI Is the one sensible cure for catarrh because it reaches every fold, crevice and nook In the mu cous membrane and gets where the germs are. You breathe HYOMEI and as it passes over tho Inflamed membrane its soothing influence heals tho soreness and destroys tho germs. A complete HYOMEI outfit costs $1.00. This consists of a bottle of HYOMEI and a hard rubber inhaler. Pour a fow drops of HYOMEI Into tho inhaler and breatho It a few minutes each day, that's all you have to do. It is guaranteed by G. W. Pell and druggslts everywhere to cure catarrh, coughs, colds and sore throat or monoy back. Extra bottle of HYOMEI costs 50 conts. Free trial saraplo on request, from Booth's Hyomei Co., Buffalo, N.

A recital held at the Lyric Thea tre, last Friday evening, brought Madam Helen Bertram to the city as tho prima donna soprano. Ma dam Bertram has been in New York for a number of year's studying and cultivating her voice, and her ap pearance hero was interesting on that account. Her first selection was Leoncavallo's "Ballatelia," tho great display song of most dramatic soprano vocalists, and the perform ance was characterized by a bril liancy much too seldom heard. The acoustical properties of tho Lyric Theatre are very good, and this Incident naturally contributes to brilliancy, but aside from this fact, the soloist proved herself a close student of technique and Its tradi tions and sang with excellent ex pression. She was ably assisted at the pianoforte by Louis Baker Phil Hps, Scranton. Tho audience made up In enthusiasm what it lacked in numbers and encores wore fro quent. The program follows: PART I. Ballatelia Leoncavallo PART II. 1. Snow Flowers Schneider 2. A Tol Bemberg 3. The Rain Is Falling on the Flow ers Hadley 4. Mandoline Debussy 5. Le Prlntemps , Stern PART III. 1.
