YEAKS IX HONES
DALE. William T. Heft, the Ninth street
barber, has been a resident of Hones
dale for more than fifty-eight years.
For forty-eight years he has plied his
vocation, being apprenticed to the
trade when only ten years of age.
Like many another ambitious
Honesdale boy he went to work pick
ing slate for the Delaware and Hud
son when only seven years old, for
the small wage of 35 cents a day.
The Maple City In those stirring
days of 'CI was dependent entirely
on the docks and boating on the ca
nal. Everything was done by hand,
even the boats being loaded with
wheelbarrows. In'the absence of the
labor-saving machinery of to-day,
hundreds of men were employed
dumping coal Into the shutes, and
distributing It In the boats.
" Uncle Billy," as he Is affec
tionately called by all the boys and
girls In town, Is an artist at hair
dressing. When seen Wednesday
morning at his cosy shop on Ninth
street by a Citizen man, he was bus
ily engaged in sorting hair, and weav
ing it into a switch.
" I buy all my hair here," he said.
" I've got natural human hair. I
don't deal In any artificial hair at all.
I buy it right here. It's brought In
to me by the people from all over the
county. Children, women and even
men bring In hair.
" It's hair often that's been cried
over by many a mother. Sometimes
it comes into me tied up with ribbon
bows, in nice tissue paper. You can
see It's been prized very highly. I
take it, some woman gets into the
family that knows nothing of the as
sociations connected with It. Some
new woman gets Into the family cir
cle, and either puts it In the stove or
brings Jt to the hairdresser.
"I buy hair bunches. Little girls
bring in locks of hair and combings.
In that way I keep my supply of hair.
" I have the greatest time combing
out some of the hair. The ladles
take it out of the combs and knot It
up. Then I have to break it in order
to use It.
" Women are foolish when they tie
up combings they want turned Into
switches and puffs. The hair Is of a
wiry nature, like finger nails. My
hands get all sore and shaky from
trying to straighten out the matted
" ' Rats ' are not worn so much
now. They're going out. They're
not so big. I make puffs, hair flow
ers, hair jewelry, wigs and toupees.
Where there's just a baldness, men
wear the toupees."
Mr. Heft believes in combing
pleasure with business, and for the
past forty-two years has been con
ducting dancing classes In town, two
terms to the season.
This Interesting conversatien was
Interrupted by a little girl coming in
the door, In need of the barber's ser
vices. Mr. Heft was at the chair In
a moment asking:
" Did she want them bobbed?"
She did. And the reporter bobbed
out of the shop, only to run up
against a detective who told him "a
nigger had just been arrested on sus
picion and sent up for ten days."
ALL HAVING A GOOD TIME.
Mrs. George F. Emery, of Phila
delphia, is chaperoning a party of

ONE MORE TEACHERS' EXAMIN

DALE. " Dare a man teacher smoke?"
They are not supposed to."
" Dare the lady teachers chew
" Nothing is said about that."
Such, in the opinion of County
Superintendent J. J. Koehler, is the
effect the provisions of the new
school code, will have upon the per
sonal habits of the 250 male and fe
male pedagogues In Wayne county.
The women may chew gum, but the
men are not supposed to smoke. That
looks like " woman's rights " with a
None of the districts in Wayne
county have adopted the medical In
spection feature of the school code.
" There Isn't much need of It in the
small districts," said Prof. Koehjer
to a Citizen man. " In congested dis
tricts, there Is a great demand for
When asked whether there were
many cases of " adenoids " in the
county, Mr. Koehler said:
" Not so many. Parents usually,
in many of the districts, will see to
the eyes of their children. They will
have ther defective eyesight examin
ed, and glasses will be bought for
them. The oare of tho throat seems
to be a thing unknown. Catarrhal
conditions of the nose and throat are'
prevalent, and they don't seem to re
ceive much attention. That's some-!
thing that we ought to be on tho
lookout for. The throat and eyes
ought to receive more attention than
they are getting.
" All of the applicants for schools,
without any hesitation, signed the
' good health ' blanks. That's a good
feature. We can keep out the tuber
cular teachers. Those don't come up
for examination now. People afflict
ed with that disease are sort of sen
sitive. " There will be another teachers'
examination, the last teachers' exam
ination for this season. It will be
held August 28 at 8 a. m. In the
eighth grade room of the Honesdale
High school 'building.
" All applicants must be eighteen
years of age, and no applicant who
has failed In more than two branches
In one of the previous examinations
will be admitted.
" Probably about fifteen or eigh
teen of the lady teachers In the coun
ty got married this last year.
" Up to August 1, I granted only
95 provisional certificates. This is
less than formerly, since we demand
better preparation. There are about
a dozen college graduates teaching
In the county.
" I am outlining the school work
for the year, this month. I went to
Washington, D. C, two weeks in
June. That's the only vacation I
" All but two or three of the school
districts have sent in their reports.
They don't get their state appropria
tion until the report comes in. The
ones that get their reports in first
get their appropriations first.
" There are many Normal and
High school graduates teaching In
the county. We don't give many
provisional certificates without high
school training. I Issued fourteen
professional certificates In May.
" All the seventeen-year-old ap
plicants that passed will be grant
ed their provisional certificates on
the day they are eighteen."
The reporter was amazed to learn
that several schools In the northern
section of the county opened their
1911-1912 terms right after July 4.
The reason assigned was, that the
schools are so far removed from
travelled roads, that It Is of benefit
to the greatest number of pupils to
start early so as not to expose little
children to the perils of Winter.
But think of going to school In

Mr. Loveiass Can't Walk
and has Worn Out
WELL KNOWN IN HONESDALE
FOR OVEIl TWENTY YEARS.
A. Loveiass Is a familiar person
upon our streets and has been for
over twenty yedrs. He has driven a
mule hitched to a two-wheeled cart
for that length of time. In conversa
tion with a Citizen reporter on Mon
day, Mr. Loveiass said he is com
pelled to ride owing to rheumatism
which he has had several years and
which affects his lower limbs. Mr.
Loveiass stated that he had worn
out one gig and Is riding in his sec
ond sulky. When asked whether or
not he could walk, Mr. Loveiass said:
" No, I only hobble around a little.
I have been worse since I had a run
away a few years ago. ' Jack,' my
mule, got frightened at a bear that
crossed the road near Forest Lake
and I was thrown out and dragged
quite a distance. I fell on my head
and my feet were fastened In the
sulky. The cords of my legs con
tracted and It was necessary for me
to cut off eight Inches from my
crutches. No, If you offered me
$200 I could not walk from here
(foot of Main street) to the bridge
without making 200 steps."
Mr. Loveiass claimed that he
brought 70 quarts of huckleberries
to Honesdale Monday and sold all
but four quarts. He stated that he
came to the county seat every day
last week, having brought from 70
to 80 quarts of berries daily. He
says he gets his berries from near
Forest Lake" and disposes of his pro
duct In Hawley, White Mills and
Honesdale. 'Mr. Loveiass does not
leave his sulky In selling his berries
or while doing other marketing. His
customers come to him as he Is un
able to get out. He lives eight miles
this side of Forest Lake.
F. J. HERBST INJURED.
Tho Port Jervls Gazette of Mon
day, In a special from Mllford, states
that Fred J. Herbst, one of Milford's
druggists, met with a serious acci
dent Sunday afternoon. Mr. Herbst
was formerly of HonesdaTo and as
his many friends will be Interested
In him we reproduce what the Ga
zette contained concerning the acci
dent: While taking a couple of
friends out for a ride in his car to
ward Dlngman's, and when just be
low tho 'Henry Canne place, the left
front of the car collapsed, causing
the car to leave the road toward the
stone wall. Mr. Herbst was thrown
out of the car and received several
cuts about the head and some other
bruises. He was unconscious for
some time. Dr. C. N. Skinner, Port
Jorvis, was summoned, and took the
injured man to the Deerpark Sani
tarium In that city where he is under
his care. His injuries consist of
compound fracture of the left leg and
several internal Injuries.
WILL CO.ME HACK TO VOTE.
" I'll return In time to vote," pa
triotically remarked John E. Rich
mond, the well-known music teach
er of 615 Church street, to a Citizen
man, Tuesday, whom he Informed
that he and Mrs. Richmond were
leaving next Monday for Montrose,
where they will spend the remainder
of tho Summer.
The Rlchmonds have been making
annual pilgrimages to Bethlehem, N.
H., since 1879, as Mrs. Richmond Is a
great sufferer from hay fever. They
propose to make a change this year
and try a lower altitude in the hope
of alleviating Mrs. Richmond's suf
ferings. Montrose is located about
2000 feet above sea level, and is
free from fogs and dampness. Doc
tor R. A. Torrey, the celebrated evan
gelist, who conducts a famous Bible
conference there annually, is him
self a great hay fever patient, and
claims that ho has found considerable
relief In Montrose from this annoy
Mr. and Mrs. Richmond will be
joined by a party of friends from
Connecticut who will spend tho

GOOD LINE OF EXHIBITS EX
PECTED AT THIS YEAR'S
" I had 113 entries from one

secretary of the Wayne County Fair
association, for the past thirteen
years, in discussing with a Citizen
man, the opening next Monday of the
49 th annual exhibition of the Wayne
" No, sir; there'll be no gambling
on the grounds," emphatically de
clared Secretary Gammell.
" Why Is the Wayne County Fair
the first one this year In Pennsylva
nia?" was inquired.
" Oh, for various reasons," he an
swered. " We got to have It early
or late to get horses for horse rac
ing. 'Most everybody likes a horse
" Another thing, there's a good
many summer boarders In the county.
The days are longer. In the Fall of
the year It has been too cold for
milch cows to bo brought here. Ex
hibitors were almost afraid to leave
them on the grounds over night.
" There'll be lots of garden veg
etables at this time of the year, we
wouldn't have In October.
" These are good reasons, I think.
It's an experiment. It's such a radi
cal change people are talking about
it. If you get people talking about
anything, they'll get Interested.
" We had an average attendance
last year of 3,000 to 8,000 people
dally. There were 12,000 people
who attended In all.
" There Is a good free attraction
on this year, a horse and pony cir
cus from New York City. The ad
mission will be as It has always
been, 25 cents. At 7 o'clock, It's
open, and closes when the people
are all gone.
We expect a good line of ex
hibits," concluded Mr. Gammell, who
will be on the grounds every day next
week, and see that the bearings of
the cumbersome fair machinery are
properly lubricated. And by the
way, Mr. Gammell Isn't a political
candidate, this year, either!

ENDG LAND'S CATHEDRAL SHAKY
That England's national catherdal,
St. Paul's is In danger is now evi

which has been taken before a select
committee of the House of Commons
according to tho New York Herald.
'Some years ago, when the danger to
the cathedral was first reported, the
