evening at City Hall, In regular

bers In attendance. Street Commis
sioner Lawrence Weldner and Chief
Engineer John Lyons were also pres

A letter from W. B. Roadknlght,
foreman of Hose Company No. 3,
was read, which stated that " In
looking over the hose, we find we
need 300 feet for the steamer."
Secretary V. W. Kimble reported
for the hose committee, that he had
been informed that there was only
about 000 feet of hose on hand any
where near fit for use with the en
gine. Chief 'Engineer John Lyons en
lightened the borough fathers on
the hose question. " It requires A
Number 1 "hose," he said, " to stand
250 pounds' pressure. Any hose af
ter it has been used two or three
years -will hardly stand that stream.
The strongest link of hose is the
weakest one. There is hardly any
of the hose but what Is fit for plug
service, where the pressure Is only
50 or- 60 pounds. But when you at
tach 'It to the. steamer, you Increase
the pressure to 250 pounds."
. Engineer Lyons was added to the
Fire Department committee, con
sisting of Messrs. W. W. Kimble
and George M Genung, who were
authorized to examine all the hose
In both companies; to note the age
of the hose as marked on the coup
lings, and make a list of the age and
condition of the hose. Two mem
bers are to be appointed from each
company to act In conjunction with
The Script committee presented a

Chas. W. Dein, reported that bonds

W. Penwarden. Bond No. 53 has
been transferred from the estate of
Leslie Lockberger, late of Oregon
township, to William L. Lemlnitzer.
These transfers were ordered spread
on the minutes.
It was decided that the commit
tee on the " fire horse question,"
'Messrs. W. W. Kimble and George
M. Genung, be empowered to make
a contract with C. A. Cortright &
Son to furnish three good horses to

A rather sarcastic letter from the
State Armory Board, Harrlsburg, In
response to a communication sent
them by the Council, ordering them
to lay a sidewalk In front of the
Park Place Armory, was read. The
Board, while stating that they
wouia consiaer tne reauest at their
meeting August 1G, asked for a copy
of the borough ordinance on the
subject, and intimated that the de
mand came with rather a bad grace
just at this time, when the mortar
was hardly dry on the handsome
new Armory building.
Several of the councllmen didn't
think It was such a very handsome
building, nor much of an ornament
to the town. One of the members
even went so far as to say that
" personally he hadn't any use for
armories or arms of any kind."
Street Commissioner Lawrence
Weldner remarked that " Mr. Wes
ton would like the dust scraped off
Main street so they could oil it
One of- the councllmen thought
that all the streets ought to be oil

W. H. Bullock, Honesdale, state
horticultural Inspector, whose field
of operations covers Wayne, Pike and
Monroe counties, called at The Citi
zen office Friday afternoon, with a
live specimen of the codling moth
that causes so much trouble here
abouts, and Is responsible for our
The brown-eyed, fly-by-night mon
ster was safely caged In a tube used
for testing lime and sulphur solu
tion. " He was on the limb of a tree,"
said Mr. Bullock, " and I put the
tube right over him so 'that he
couldn't lly. I have a tube with
cynalde of potassium In It that will
kill them, but I wanted to catch this
" You don't see but very few of
these. They fly nights. I found this
one resting on an apple tree. They
attack pears and apples, and some
" We are safe In saying that 75
per cent, of our apples are wormy
on account of this Insect, and yet
that can be controlled easily by prop
er spraying. Lewis Brothers, down
near Pittston, have been spraying
four years. Last Fall they offered
their pickers $1 apiece for every
wormy apple they could find. You
can't do it the first year, but you
reduce them a good deal.
" We've always had them ever
since I could remember. We didn't
do anything about them until very
lately. The remedy is arsenate of
lead. You can buy the arsenate of
lead. Use two pounds to one gallon
of water or spraying material. You
can use Bordeaux mixture in com
bination with it. Arsenate of lead is
an Insecticide, and at this time we
can use a fungicide, and combine the
two. Then we can check fungus dis
eases and at the same time destroy
the codling moth larvae.
" The apple crop will be very light
Indeed in Wayne county this year.
It will be light all over Wayne, Pike,
and Monroe, but better than here In
Wayne. There are no apples scarce
ly in Wayne county. No, I don't
blame the codling moth for it.
" The general impression is, that
the hot weather Is the cause of It.
The sun came out hot when the trees
were In bloom. The blossoms turned
brown In a day or two and fell off.
The apples didn't set; didn't form.
" The ' curculio ' Is another bad
pest. They destroy half of our
plums. They lay an egg there, and
the little egg hatches and eats into
the stone in the centre of the fruit,
and that causes the fruit to be
" The ' curculio ' and the ' codling
moth ' seem to be the worst pests we
have In Wayne county. The cur
culio stings the stone fruits, the
plums, cherries and peaches. Some
call it the ' plum curculio.' It's get
ting more in other fruit. I find it In
apples this year. I think they are
getting worse every year.
" These are the two worst insect
pests. We don't have much San
Jose scale In Wayne county.
" The ' mite ' Is another bad pest
A mite Is a very small Insect that
gets Into the leaf. The leaf turns
yellow. Half of the leaves In many
places have fallen to the ground
People think a tree is dying but it's
this mite. It's so small, we can't see
it without a compound magnifying
glass. I nave never seen one.
" I think there will be some early
Fall apples at the Wayne county fair,
This isn't an apple year. Every oth
er year they claim is an apple year,
The Baldwin seems Inclined to bear
every other year. It Is claimed that
we have to cultivate our orchards,
spray the trees, and thin out the
fruit, In order to have a crop every
year, providing there wasn't a late
frost or something we couldn't con

Men are seeing that they can't grow
fruit without spraying or cultivating,
They have to do something. The

COMMISSIONERS CLERIC MR. '
ROSS (SETS LETTER ASKING
AIIOUT MISSING MAN.
S. I. Mooney, of Salem, West Vlr- ,
glnla, who came to Wayne county
last Fall and secured employment j
with a Arm of contractors, has dls-.
appeared as mysteriously as if the
earth had opened up and swallowed .
Fearing foul play, his brother,
W. T. Mooney, wrote to the Clerk of '
the County Commissioners, George ',
P. Ross, asking for information I
about his missing brother. The let- ,
ter was written on stationery bear-,
ing the monogram of the Mountain ,
State Hotel, Salem, Virginia, under
date of July 31, 1911, and is as fol
lows: "Mr. Clerk,
Wayne Co., Pa.
If you'll kindly remember
last Autumn, a bridge com
pany was building a viaduct or
bridge at Cold Springs In your
county. My brother, S. I.
Mooney, was working there
then in the latter part of Oc
tober, and have not heard
from him since. I fear some
thing may have happened to
him there, or since going
If you will send me the name
and home address of the bridge
company, and the name of some
business parties at Cold Springs
I shall be greatly obliged to
you for the kindness.
I remain, ,yours respectfully,
W. T. MOONEY."
The strangest pari of the mys
terious disappearance lies in the
fact that there was no bridge or
viaduct built at Cold Springs for
years. It Is barely possible that the
missing Mooney was driving a team
or working on the state road for
the firm of Seamans, Irving and
If any reader of The Citizen
knows of the whereabouts of the
missing man, call up The Citizen
office, or write full particulars.
WORKERS IN THE L. I. A.
That there are workers in the
Ladles' Improvement association is
evinced by the fact that three mem
bers of the park committee were In
Central Park on Monday, with
brooms, rakes and dustpans nearby,
cleaning up loose leaves, twigs and
other debris. The workers were:
Mrs. John Kuhbach, Mrs. H. T.
Menner, Mrs. John Lambert and
Mrs. George M. Genung. "If you
want anything done properly you
must do It yourself," quoted one of
the Industrious workers as she came
across the street Monday afternoon
to inform a Citizen representative.
"No, wo do not have to do It, but
rather than see the park left in
an untidy condition and being on
the park committee we decided to
clean that part of the park that Is
in front of our own properties."
Great beads of perspiration were
standing upon the face of our In
formant and from the appearance
of the park one might say It takes
the women to do things.

Store of William R. Knoll
Badly Damaged by
$750 INSURANCE CARRIED ON
STOCK AND FIXTURES; ONE
In an early morning fire Tuesday
In the store of William R. Knoll,
Willow avenue, the proprietor sus
tained a loss of $2,000, with Insur
ance of $750 on stock and fixtures.
The fire was discovered by Leon
ard Guckenberger, owner of the
building, who was returning homo.
He saw the reflection of the fire up
on the wall and gave the alarm. A
garden hose was attached to the
hydrant of F. W. Bunnell's hotel,
nearby, and the fire was nearly sub
dued when the Are companies ar
A line of hose was laid from the
fire hydrant at the foot of Church
street, across the Herrman bridge to
the Guckenberger building. .Hose
Company No. 1 arrived first and had
a stream on In a few minutes. This
company was followed by Protection
Engine No. 3 which company placed
another line of hose from the other
side of the plug. The Alert Hook
and Ladder company of Texas 2
were promptly upon the scene, fol
lowed by Chemical Engine Company
No. 4 of Texas.
The fire was soon extinguished.
The fixtures and store were badly
damaged by fire, smoke and water.
Mr. Guckenberger estimates his loss
at $800. He carries insurance to
the amount of $2,OJ)0 on the build
Mr. Knoll, who lives in the P.
R. Murray tenement house near the
Herrman bridge, stated Tuesday
morning that he did not hear the
gong and knew nothing about the
lire until called by a member of his
family. Mr. Knoll claimed that at
one time he kept a quantity of
matches under the counter and that
one box might have fell down where
mice or rats could have gnawed them
thus starting a fire. He states that
other than this he has not the least
Idea how the fire originated, as
there was no fire In the stove and
that Is In a different part of the.
store. He had moved from the Pell.
building Main street a few months,
ago and was securing a nice patron
age at the time of-the fire.
One accident occurred at the fire-
William Bunnell, son of F. W. Bun
nell, who was one of the first to as-i
sist In rutting out the fire,, used his,'
fist to gain an entrance In the store..
His hand, as a result, was badly cut
by the glass of the front window. It
was necessary for Dr. P. Fj Griffin to
take several stitches in the injured
rignt hand to close the wounds.
Mr. Guckenberger stntedi that the
front plate glass were valued at
$200. , : ,i
