Judgment for $25 was awarded the plaintiff, Victor Miszler, em ployed at Charles McArdle's stables, Honesdale, against Albert "Kanttner, a WhIte""Milts farmer, Tuesday after noon at a hearing before 'Squire Robert A. Smith, Attorney W. H. Lee appearing for the prosecution and Chester A. Garratt, Esq., for the defense. The claim was for $25 and inter est for 'two years, balance owing on a hbrse, buggy and harness sold to the defendant by Mr. Miszler June 9, 1909, for $80, and on which pay ments amounting to $55 had already been made. A plea of non-assumpsit was en tered for the defense. Victor Misz ler testified to the sale, and terms of payment which were to be $10 a month, The, horse was in "pretty good condition," said Miszler, who also remarked: "You can't get much for $80 can you?" Charles McArdle testified to a con versation In his presence in whiph Kanntner .refused to 'sign 'a judg ment note 'for the balance. Albert ' Kanttner swore that Mesz ler guaranteed the horse to be true every way. That the riext morning he found the horse had the heaves. He paid $1 down and thq real dur ing a period of six months. The horse, wouldn't work, and so he gave It away. Mrs. Kanttner 'testified that the horse 'had the heaves and said: "I was ashamed to ride behind it." Miszler was. recalled and denied having guaranteed the" horse. Mrs. Kanttner's two infant chil dren, Edwin and -'Kathryn, were present at the hearing. Declaring 'the case to be a one sided one, 'Squire Smith granted the judgment prayed for. The horse deal was made in the evening. The lesson It should teach Wayne county farmers Is, never to buy a horse In the dark. CircusAdvertisingBrought Trade to Honesdale WHY NOT HAVE SIMILAR AT TRACTIONS ONCE OR TWICF A MONTH? The "result of systematic, legiti mate and thorough advertising was shown' on Friday by several hundred people coming to Honesdale from the rural districts to attend the Sparks circus. The merchants of Honesdale: were a happy hunch when a large major Ity of these people visited their stores. For days afterward they wore a smile that wouldn't come off, and from a business standpoint it was a paying proposition on the part of the merchant. It is said that shows and circuses are not wel come to a town, and they take "out more than they, leave. This, un- aouoteaiy, to a certain degree, may be correct, but what about thn rov. oral . hundred people who always IBK8 advantage or like occasions and visit the town, perhaps once or twice a year to do their shopping? Right- along these: lines Is an on portunlty for the merchants of Honesdale to' create or devise some means whereby large numbers of people, wllj be attracted to the town once or twice a month for the pur pose of stimulating business. The summer boarding season is here and there are large numbers of ,tne city' guests who come to the county annually to have a good time and be entertained. The num bers are increasing yearly. Every day the boarders go somewhere' for a drive, .traveling sometimes from fifteen to twenty miles. They go to the largest country town or city from where they might be staying and money is no object with them. It now lies with the Business Men's association and Greater Honesdale Board of Trade to co operate in this matter and secure the business' that might otherwise go elsewhere. Floral parades, car nivals, or other doings of a special nature can be planned to attract the people to Honesdale. The summer-boarder Is not the only class that the town wants, bjrt It Is very desirous of the rural dis trict trade. Farmers and others who now go to other places should come to the county seat. Arrange ments might be made to have spec ial excursions come to Honesdale over the Erie and Delaware & Hud son roads, thus bringing a large number of people to Honesdale. When the excursion comes there should he some provision made for the entertainment of the visitors. Every prosperous business man realizes the value of thorough ad vertlslng. It the proposed scheme were advertised as was the Sparks show, the prdposltlo.HajvouW be an overwhelming success ro,mj one end of the year, Ao the .'Othef.,. Advertis ing Is gradually being reduced to a science. The time has gone by wnen any store oan hope to be a success except on the one-price sys tem. BUSINESS M WANT CROWDS (SUMMER SCHOOL IS MEN HOLD HAS 30 STUDENTS Opened Monday, Under Prof. Oday and Mrs. Alma J. G. Dix 37 WOJiEN AND' a MEN STUDY ING FOR TEACHERS' EXAMI NATIONS. Thirty students, the majority of whom are 'High school graduates, registered Monday morning at the Honesdale High school when the Summer school conducted by Prof. Harry A. Oday and '.Mrs. Alma J. G. Dlx was formally opened. ' The object of the school is to fit young men and women to take the teachers' examinations. For the five weeks' terra the moderate fee of $5 is charged. All of the thirty embryonic peda gogues are women, with three ex ceptions. In this connection it may 'be of general Interest to know that only two or three of the young men who graduated from the Honesdale High school within the past ten years, have made teaching their pro fession, owing probably to the smal' salaries paid male Instructors. The majority of them are engaged In more profitable occupantlons. The schedule of daily- lectures in the Summer school Is as follows: 9-9:40 a. m. Algebra; 9:40-10:20 a. m. Arithmetic: 10:20-11 a. m.

Who ever heard tell of a hog attempting to commit suicide? Nevertheless, if you haven't heard of It; such is the fact. Not belne on the spot at the time or being abje to talk "hog latin" we were unable to get an interview with the porker. But it is presumed he was crossed In love by a fellow ho& and could no longer stand being rebuffed and took this means of doing away with his "pig skin." The hog belongs to Anthony Rickert, -Indian Orchard. Sunday morning he missed his lordship and' a search ensued. He found newly broken ground near the berm bank oi me om u. & a. canal and en In vestlgation followed. The Die had rooted a large hole in the bank un derneath two large bents, which hnrt fallen upon him and beld him a prisoner. When Mr. Rickert ex tricated the hog It was about dead, but he has since given It consider able care and attention, and the hog is now apparently none the worse ior Ala attempted suicide.

GOVERNOR W SIGNINlSlLLS Next Week WKiee Com $Pi I 12 pletion of i ask JONES ROAD BILL CUT $500,000; SCULPTOR BARNARD GETS $80,000. Next week will see the finish of the legacy left to Gov. Tener by the late Legislature, as the thirty -days after adjournment will have elapsed. All bills will either have been vetoed or signed, or they will become laws by reason of the expiration of thirty days without action on the part of the Governor. Quite a number are still in his hands, although this week has s'een the closing up of a great many. ' Among the bills signed was one providing for an addition or exten sion of the Capitol Park grounds, carrying an appropriation of $2,d00, OOpr although only $200,000 Is made available this year. Not a little , pressure was brought to bear upon the Governor by Harrlsburg people to sign the bill, and the Executive evidently gave the matter careful consideration. This was evidenced by the statement he gave out when he signed the .bill to the effect that if 'it should develop that the land in ques tion could not be secured for the amount of the appropriation, he would recommend that the next leg islature repeal the bill. How likely they are to do this may be guessed by the fact that two successive Leg islatures passed such a bill as Gov ernor Tener just signed, almost un animously, and this undoubtedly had some Infliinnna with tho nnv.nn. A great many disinterested people luuiuiu to me oeuer tnat the State win nave expended nearer four mil lion than two million when the grounds are cleared nnrl nut I sentable condition.

In vetoing a number of salary rais ing bills, while approving others less worthy,, the Governor brought down upon himself the condemnation of those" he did not favor, and many comparisons .were made. What mov ed him to such action is a matter of conjecture, but he doubtless had what he regarded as good and suffi cient reason. The vetoes were not on account of Insufficient revenue. Another veto, which will probably cause "more condemnation, was the . Jones road bill, which was given $500,000 by the Governor, instead of the $1,000,000 appropriated by the Legislature. There are many who believe that the dominant party will lose by this action, among the farmer voters, for this bill appealed to them especially. If money were necessary thaf amount could have been cut from some other bills, for there were quite a few where the State was more generous than fair. Sculptor George Gray Barnard was allowed 280.000 'tw n' hill li,n tn. day. This will help him to recoup some .of his losses. -Mr," Barnard has been here most of the week putting the finishing touches on his work, so as to have It ready for the un veiling ceremonies In September. 'Harrlsburg was signally honored this week by the presence of two great Democrats, Speaker Champ Clark and Governor Wilson of New Jersey, both of whom regard them selves as Presidential timber, and have a little boom under way. These gentlemen were here for the en couragement and quickening of the state Democracy, particularly the re organizing element, and a big crowd of the untorrlfied was on hand. Con gressmen Pamer, Stroudsburg, and Wilson, Tioga county, were also present. Thero Is no doubt but our friends are In better fighting' shape than usual this year, and Speaker Clark felt so encouraged that he ventured to predict the success of tho Democracy In the Presidential .campaign next year. Perhaps, he may be corrett Much may happen between now and November of 1912 N. E. HAUSE. - ANXIOUS TO HELP.
