"GOING TO HAVE
THAT M SPITAL"
Enthusiastic Meeting of
Association is Held
TO ASK A 910,000 APPROPRIA
TION FROM THE STATE.
That there is renewed activity and
vigor among the members of the
Women's Auxiliary of the Wayne
County Hospital association is
evinced by the enthusiastic meeting
held last Thursday evening in the
council chambers of the city hall.
The meeting was called to order
by the president of the board, Miss
Tilile Weiss. Nearly all of the offi
cers of the board were present and
the room was filled with, prospective
workers. When 'Miss Weiss asked
for the sentiment of the members of
the board they replied In one ac
cord, " We will have a hospital."
When suggested that If some would
not deem it wise to wait awhile be
fore active work might be done, the
president found It almost impossible
to govern the session owing to the
earnestness and Intensity demon
strated by the women in wanting the
hospital at once. The idea of aban
doning the project was made light of.
Representatives from Texas No. 4
and East Honesdalo were present.
Both districts have over $100 sub
scribed and claim that they can se
cure more money If the occasion de
The Wayne 'Hospital association
lost its appropriation by only $1,000,
14,000 having been pledged. Of this
amount there is $1,300 in the bank.
The ladies of the board are to be
commended for conducting the pro
ject on an economical basis, there
having been but $17 expended so far
for printing, supplies and school
children's envelopes. Persons hav
ing any money representing " years,
months and days," a method adopted
by the hospital association for col
lecting funds, are requested to give
same to Miss Tilile Weiss or Miss
The board proposes to continue
to get funds and add same to the
principal. It has decided not to ask
for $5,000 appropriation from the
State at the next legislature, but
double the amount, asking for $10,
000. The auxiliary hope' to have
that amount raised at the time of
the next legislature.
A hospital Sunday will be asked
from the different churches in Wayne
county, when a special collection
will be taken and same go toward
the hospital fund. The different
churches can take their special col
lection any Sunday from now on.
The money can be sent to the presi
dent, Miss Tilile Weiss.
The children of the day schools
throughout the rural districts have
contributed $180 to the enterprise,
which is very commendable upon
A committee composed of Mrs. G.
M. Genung and Mrs. George W. Pen
warden was appointed to ascertain
whether or not special concessions
could not be obtained from the
"Wayne County Agricultural society
for the hospital association during
The association Intend to start In
a simple manner and hope when the
time comes to have enough money
ahead to start a sinking fund be
sides the $10,000 which will coun
terbalance the state's proposed ap
propriation. The board hope to be
able to maintain the hospital with
out having a constant drain upon
the public for maintenance.
The Montclalr, N. J., hospital,
which was founded about ten years
ago, started with twelve beds and to
day it has eighty and Is worth $200,
000. A board composed of forty
women govern the hospital. During
this period the hospital has had no
The above is an illustration of
what can be accomplished by a hard
and persistent working board and
the Wayne County Hospital associa
tion is just as enthusiastic and hope
to accomplish something just as
good. The members do not propose
to allow the project to lack interest.
Ways and means for raising money
will be considered at an early date.
A prominent citizen, who is very
much Interested In the hospital fund,
suggested to the president that con
tribution boxes be placed in the
postofflco and Union depot to secure
money for the project.- The auxili
ary claims that only twenty men in
Wayno county have contributed to
the fund and sincerely hope that a
general awakening among this class
might speedily be realized.
The general meeting of the
Wayne County Hospital association
will be held in September.

George W. Kipp who died last week

ably be a special election sanctioned

that it Is entitled to the office on ac
count of the unfulfilled term of Mr.

IN CLOSE GAME
Home Team Wins by Final
Score of 3 2
VISITORS HAVE STRONG NINE
AND MAKE HONESDALE
WORK HARD FOR VIC
Such was the verdict, Saturday
afternoon, at the silk mill grounds,
in the snappiest base ball game
ever played in the Maple City.
" Something Doing. Honesdale
vs. Hawley at 3 p. m. To-Day."
That was the way the game was ad
vertised in streaks of white on every
corner flag-stone in the city last Sat
urday morning. And you can just
bet your sweet life there was
" something doing," too!
The spectators, and there were al
most a thousand of them, Hawley
alone bringing over two hundred
rooters along, were really treated to
a double-header. They certainly
got the worth of their money.
The First Game.
The first game was called at 3:17
p. m. by Umpire H. Balles, who gave
tne decisions on balls and strikes.
while Robert Boland, Hawley um
pired tne bases.
Sweltzer opened the stanza by
grounding to Kupfer. McNamara
singled to left, and Rose followed
suit. Gilpin fanned. Sweltzer tried
to reach home, on Seller's safe hit
to left field, but "Duffer" Weaver re
covered the ball in time to make a
splendid throw to Sandercock. cut
ting off the threatened run, and re
tiring the side.
All looked well when the Countv
Seaters went to bat in their half of
the first. Mangan straightened out
one of Southpaw Sheridan's curves
and sent the ball akiting to centre
for one base. Captain Brader sacri
ficed to Sheridan who threw the ball
to second in time to catch Mangan.
Ross hit a grounder to Wilson who
threw the ball to Gibbons in an at
tempt to make a doubleplay. Gib
bons dropped the -ball, and, Brader
kept right on to third. Gibbons
threw the ball to McNamara, who
dropped it, and Brader was safe on
third and Ross on second.
A hot argument arose over the
play, 'Hawley claiming that Brader
was out for overrunning second.
The crowd rushed on the field. The
discussion waxed warm. The Bridge
Dodgers left the field refusing to
continue the game, unless Brader
was declared out.
The Second Game.
" We have compromised on the
scrap and start the game' over from
the beginning!" That was the com
forting announcement Manager Leon
Ross megaphoned to the rooters dur
ing a temporary lull in the verbal
hostilities following the first game,
which by right belonged to us. Just
to show that there were no hard
feelings, after winning the first
game, 9 to 0, the County Seaters
turned in again, and In a ninth
inning batting rally, won the second
game 3 to 2.
Hawley got a runaway start In the
first session, when on a combination
of three hits, a base on balls, and
Sandercock's wild throw to third,
they scored the only two runs they
made that afternoon.
This is how they did it: Sweltzer
singled to right garden, beating the
ball out to first, but was caught try
ing to steal second. McNamara's
patience was rewarded by a pass to
first. Gilpin fanned, McNamara
meanwhile stealing second. On
Seller's single to right, McNamara
went to third, and all the way home,
followed by Rose who brought in
the second run on Sandercock's wild
throw to third. The Hawley root
ers went wild. Thlelke ended the
agony by sending an easy grounder
to Kupfer. Score 2 to 0.
In Honesdalo's half of the first
Mangan put a pop fly In Wilson's
hands. Captain Brader was hit by a
pitched ball, and trotted to first base.
Ross got to first on player's choice,
sending an easy grounder to Wil
son, who tossed the ball to Gibbons
and Brader was out. All that San
dercock could do was to send a pop
fly to McNamara. No runs.
In the second canto, Captain
Gibbons "fanned. Wilson walked,
and took second on Captain Brader's
fumble of Sandercock's throw.
" Sheridan " rode. Sweltzer rolled
to Brader. "Nothing doing" that
Kupfer fouled to McNamara, and
Polt sent an easy one to Sheridan.
Schilling gave the ball a ride to
right garden, stole second, but was
an easy out at the home plate, in
attempting to score on "Duffer"
Weaver's single to right.
Hawley threatened to score in the
third inning on McNamara's double
to left, but Rose and Gilpin fanned,
Seller flled to Captain Brader, and
the danger point was safely passed.
Benjamin Franklin Hessllng was
out on a terrific line drive to Wil
son, who made a fine catch. Mangan
followed suit with an easy one to
Sweltzer. Captain Brader walked.
Ross singled to centre, advancing

a hot one to Brader who tossed the
ball to Kupfer. Kupfer stepped on

Seller slashed a terrific hit full at
Hessllng. The ball was too hot to
be fielded, and bounded back al
most to the home plate. Then
Thlelke put a fly Into " Duffy "
Weaver's hands. Captain Gibbons
slammed one at Kupfer which the
shortstop failed to handle. Gilpin
tried to -score on the hit, but was
put out at the plate by Sandercock.

1 Costs only I8c. per Day
i to Teach Johnnie the
; " 3 R's "
COSTS SCRANTON SIX CENTS
MORE THAN IT DOES HONES
DALE. It cost just eighteen cents a day
to educate each one of the 525 pupils
In the Borough Public schools last
year, according to the financial state
ment of the Honesdale School Dis
trict just Issued.
For the small sum of eighteen
cents per diem, John and Mary have
been filled up with reading, writing
and arithmetic and " extras." The
curriculum In the higher grades, by
the way, largely consists of such
luxurious deserts as Latin, Greek,
Geology, Geometry, etc., which of
course will bo of great (?) help to
the boys and girls of the Maple City
In earning their living, after' their
school days are over, in the glass cut
ting shops and underwear factories.
More 'than ten thousand dollars
was expended in paying the salaries
of fifteen teachers, and one janitor
whose salaries averaged ?70 per
twenty-day month, or ?3.50 per six
hour day. Understand, however,
that this was the "salary average"
and not the "average salary," a dis
tinction with a decided difference,
some of the teachers receiving con
siderably less than that amount and
others being paid rather more.
The secretary and treasurer of the
school board did not draw large sal
aries, and only received ?50 apiece
as compensation for their onerous
Books were seemingly a small item
of expenditure, a little over $1, a
pupil being required for " canned
wisdom," which is certainly a mark
of progresslveness, as the trend of
present day pedagogy Is away from
stereotyped text book Instruction and
In favor of the Socratlc and lecture
methods of drawing out and impart
ing information. For strange to re
late, education, In its primary mean
ing, has to do with the "drawing out"
of a scholar. Nature abhorring a
vacuum, it is then an easy matter to
fill up the cranial cavity of the child
with " knowledge over much."
Not much money was wasted on
supplies, either, probably not more
than ?1.25 for each scholar. A little
over a dollar apiece was required to
keep the boys and girls protected
from the Arctic blasts of Honesdale's
Notes and interest amounted to
something like $4 per scholar. $58,
000 worth of bonds are still out
standing, the interest and principal
of which the boys and girls who are
now attending school, will have the
pleasure of paying later on.
That the financial affairs of the
Honesdale School District are wisely
administered Is shown by a favorable
comparison of the cost of individual
Instruction between Scranton and
Honesdale, the cost of educating a
child per day in the Electric City
averaging twenty-four cents, or six
cents more than in the Maple City.
