Two Hits and an Error
Reverses Score in
EACH TEAM HAD A SURPRISE;
WHIRLWIND FINISH TO A
In a garrison llnlsh Dunmore de
feated the Honesdale baseball team
on the silk mill grounds here last
Saturday afternoon when a combina
tion of two hits, along with Sander
cock's fatal error, gave them two
runs In the ninth inning, enough to
win by a run.
Up to the ninth inning It was a
pitchers' battle, Hessllng getting, if
anything, a little the better of the
argument. In that fatal session,
however, the Dunmoreites succeeded
In reversing the score from 2-3 to
4-3, and clinched the game.
In the dodgers advertising the
game, a surprise was promised the
locals. The surprise was all right
one Chester Ross by name a cousin
of Manager Leon Ross, who played a
good game at first, accepting ten
chances without an error, and hitting
Knox the first time up for two bags.
But Dunmore had a surprise in store
for Leon Ross' little boys, and his
name was Pitcher Knox. Outside of
the first inning, when the Maple City
boys secured two hits oft his deliv
ery, he was as Arm as Stonewall
Jackson, being especially steady with
men on bases.
The game was late In starting, ow
ing to the fact that the 3:15 p. m. D.
& H. train was delayed by the heavy
Lake Lodore passenger traffic, and
the game did not open until twenty
minutes after four o'clock.
In the first inning Hawley walked.
Dooley was an easy out to Hessllng,
Hawley advancing. Loftus fanned.
On a wild throw to third to catch
Hawley, that gentleman scored. T.
Duffy was an easy out.
In their half of the first, Hones
dale went right out in front after a
very wabbly opening session by
" Shorty " Knox. Brader drew a
walk after Mangan had gone out.
Ross made his debut by slamming
the ball into left for two bases.
Sandercock repeated the trick with
a double to deep centre, scoring
Brader, Schilling got to first on
Knox's fumble. Polt reached first
on T. Duffy's fumble, Sandercock
scoring. Polt stole second, and went
to third on a wild throw. Jacobs
drew a pass to first. Polt was an
easy out in attempting to score..
In the second inning, only one
Dunmorelte, F. Duffy, by name,
reached first on a fumble by third
baseman 'Mangan. For Honesdale,
Dudley singled to left, stole second,
and died there.
It was one, two, three in the third
Inning, on both sides, and ditto in
In the fifth, for Honesdale, with
two out, Brader singled to centre,
but died there, the next man fanning
out. It was one, two, three, In the
sixth inning for both sides, and also
for Dunmore in the seventh. Hess
llng got to first on a grounder
fumbled by the second baseman.
Mangan filed to centre, and the
chances for scoring ended.
F. Duffy opened the eighth with a
single to left, after Cooligan ground
ed to second. Moran was out on an
easy grounder to short. With two
out, Knox and Hawley singled to
centre, F. Duffy scoring. Honesdale
was blanked in the eighth.
The ninth Inning opened with the
score 3 to 2 in favor of the home
team. Loftus started with a single
after Dooley grounded to Hessllng,
T. Duffy hit a long drive to right, ad
vancing Loftus. Then Sandercock
dropped a pitched ball, and before he
could recover It, the game was lost,
T. Duffy and Loftus both scoring,
McDonald and Colllgan fanned.
Honesdale threatened to tie the
score In the ninth, when W. Polt
reached first on T. Dffy's fumble,
and took second when Jacobs was hit
by pitcher. Dudley fanned, and
Hessllng obliged with a fly to Mc
Donald ending the" game.

A young man named Frank
Mooney, Dunmore, aged 2C years,
boarded an east-bound coal train at
his home Saturday afternoon en

to secure employment on the Wll-

able manner he was Jolted from the
train at Wangum and both legs
were cut off. The left leg was sev

limb was cut off near the hip.

The Wizard home is located on

of 5 and 6 o'clock.
Entrance was gained through a

It is evident that parties who en

the premises and were aware when
the occupants left the house.

nothing could be learned as whether
there was another object in view,
but Honesdale Is satisfied even at
this kind of a visit. It adds dignity
to the community to have the presl

though for a few hours. Honesdale
welcomed the visit of President

John E. Richmond's Re
cords Once Decided a
RECOMMENDS PRACTICE TO
YOUNG PEOPLE AS GOOD
HABIT TO ACQUIRE.
For the past fifty years, John E.
Richmond, the well-known music
teacher of 918 Church street, has
kept a diary. This is a record which
is probably surpassed by no living
person in the country.
"Fifty years ago when I was at
Wesleyan University I started to
keep a diary," said Mr. Richmond to
a Citizen man who called on him
several days ago to find out if we
ever had such weather before in the
month of June. Before leaving the
weather question, this Is what 'Mr.
Richmond had to say on the subject:
Never had any such weather in
Harking back to the diary: "When
I left Wesleyan, that's in 1853, I
kept a diary. I went to New York
in 1854, and came to Carbondale in
1855, keeping a diary all the while.
I tell my wife," laughingly re
marked Mr. Richmond, "I may want
to prove an alibi some day. I always
leave a space.
"No man comes to me twice for a
bill. I always put down in my
diary .when I get money and when I
paid so and so, and how much."
Mr. Richmond's diary has figured
In Wayne county courts notably in
the case of the Vedder estate, when
a record in his little book was in
strumental In saving J. J. Curtis two
"When Vedder died," explained
Mr, Richmond, "A. Hartung and J.
J. Curtis were appointed adminis
trators of the Vedder estate. I was
In business at that time. Curtis used
to drop in and see me. He asked
me to keep his books. Hartung was
a German and couldn't keep accounts
in English. One day Hartung and
Curtis" came to the store, which, was
located' where the Wayne Co-Operative
store now stands and said: 'I
just paid ?200 to Gus. Hartung In
Kelpers store. I wish you would
make a memorandum of that.' So I
put in my diary ?200 paid by Curtis
to Hartung at Hotel DeKeipel, such
a date.' I put It on the diary from
a memorandum. When the admin
istrators came to settle up, Hartung
torgot he'd received S200, and Cur
tis came to me and asked me about
it. The case went to court. I was
subpoenaed. I showed the Judge
the entry in my diary and Curtis
won his case.
"There's nothing like It. I would
not miss It."
"If Mr. Richmond is out of town.
he wants me to keep a diary,"
laughingly interjected Mrs. Rich
mond, " and I don't get any commis
"I can see from my dairy who I
rode out with, who I called on, and
If I paid a bill," said Mr. Richmond.
"Would you advise a young
person to keep a diary?" asked the
By all means," said Mr. Rich
mond. "Why I am at home with
that. That's authority. I am willing
to swear to what I write In there,
"I never missed a day excepting
when I was sick and my wife or
somebody else kept it for mo then.
"It's a matter of business. Why
where were you last year on such
a date? Let me see. Here's my
diary. That'll settle it."
Mr. Richmond cnerishes his dla-
rles very highly. In the front of
several of them appears this Inscrip
"A liberal reward will be paid for
the finding and return to John E.
Richmond of this book."
On the fly-leaf of one of the
diaries appears this fitting verse:
"Steal not this book
'Mine honest friend
Lest the gallows
Will bo thine end!
"For In that day
The Lord will say
Where is that book
You stole away?
"And you will say,
'I do not know,'
Then He will say,
'Go down below!' "
(with the figure of a hand affixed,
Here Is another solemn warning:
"He who steals this Diary
In search of knowledge
Will end his days
In Sing Sing College."
Were Is another that is very
apropos In view of the widespread
religious unrest prevalent to-day:
"The children of the world and
the children of the church go to
gether hand In hand, but only the
good Lord who made them can tell
the two apart!"
But gracious me, Just to think of
it. Fifty long years with 365 long
days In each one of them 18,250
days. It's a lifetime!
"Magna pars erudltlonls est scire

diary helps a whole lot. Begin!
