The next holiday is Thanksgiving Day. And that reminds us that Fall Is at hand, and Winter will soon be here. Take a walk down Main street If you don't believe it. Look Into the -windows ot the haberdashers. Note the absence of the straw lid, and the appearance of the nobby 1912 derby. Gaze with longing upon the $20 suits marked down to $10. Treat your eyes to a sight of the last of the Summer ties, marked down to 23 cents. Walk along Irving Boulevard in tbo early evening. Hearken to milady as she bemoans to her friend the fact that her hat is out of style. " I'll have to get a new Tiat, soon," she confides to hubby later in the evening. Marvellous creations in feminine headgear are beginning to adorn the show wln'dows of the local milliners. Some are large, and some are small. The shirtwaist man and the peek aboo waist lady are no more to be seen on the aristocratic avenues of the Maple City. The school house bell is on the job agarln. Tommy Jones and Sis ter Sue are regretfully marching to school again. "Teacher's cross, too, this year," said one nine-year-old boy to his younger sister. "Wonder what's the matter with her? I don't see her out with her beau nights anymore. Must of had a fall out." Step out into the country where signs of a severe Winter are abund ant. Note the heavy foliage on the trees. Observe the beeches laden with nuts. For be it known that Mother Na ture makes extra provision for the creatures of the woodland, when a severe season awaits them. Stop and talk with Silas Hicks for awhile. Listen to the nonogen- arian weather prophet of the Lehigh as he reads the signs of tho goose bone. "It's going to be a hard win ter," he says. "Thirty-five snows. How do I know? Oh that's my se cret," he laughingly says as he par ries the skillful attempts of the re porter to learn the why's and where fore s of his predictions. Soon the bugs will be shouting "Katy did" and "Katy didn't." The bull frogs already are tuning up their raucous voices. The last of the harvest Is being gleaned. The careful farmer Is going over his outbuildings making repairs here and there, and getting everything snug and secure for the coming nine-months' winter. The summer boarders are desert ing the shire, and hieing away to city shop, office, store and factory. Theatre billboards are telling of the opening of the season in the County Seat. Everywhere you turn there are signs galore of the ap proaching death of Nature. HONESDALE AUTOMORILE FRIGHTENS COUNTRY HORSE. Pleasant Mount. As Mrs. Wei lington Moase, daughter, Mrs. Flor ence Sands, and granddaughter, Dor othy Sands, were on their way to church last Sunday they met George and Nelson Spencer of Honesdale in their auto o.n the corner near George Moase's house.

Mrs. Moase fell heavily, striking on her shoulder. fracturing one rib and receiving a number of other bruises, the wagon having passed over her. Mrs. Sands and daughter were more fortunate, being only severely shaken and bruised. Mr. Spencer said it was an unlucky day for him, his machine having 'frightened more horses than ever before. He rendered all the as sistance possible to the Injured peo ple and after taking iMrs. Moase home, went for a doctor. The horse ran all the way home to the barn, wrecking the wagon quite badly.

For More Than 50 Years Mr. Freeman Made Clothes LEARNED TRADE IN OLD COUN TRY; TELLS OF MODERN CONDITIONS. " Storo For Rent." This simple announcement, dis played In the window of the Main street shop, occupied by Morris Freeman, Tuesday morning, was the first intimation hundreds of Hones dale people had of the retirement from active business life of one of the oldest and best known merchant tailors in Northeastern Pennsylva nia. For more than fifty years, Mr. Freeman has designed custom-made clothing for the residents of the city and county. 'When seen by a Citizen man at his home, 814 Court street, he talked freely of his experiences. He tfaid: " In War times, I couldn't make a suit for less than $40 or $50. Every thing was high then. I had to pay $19 a barrel for flour. " There Is less custom-made clothing now than then. People buy more ready-made clothes. The farmers, too, pay more for ready made clothes than they did years ago. " I was in business In the Eas mann building for twenty-eight years. I used to keep twelve or fourteen girls working all the tlnre. " I came to Honesdale when I was about 1C. I am 72 years old now. I have been living here 56 years. " I learned the trade in the oM country. You work w'ith tho boss there. He gives you 'felling' to do, and you have to pick up the trade yourself. " Here in this country, one. tailor makes the coat, another the trous ers, and so on. It goes from one hand to another. " Yes, they make very good ready-made suits now. Years ago It wasn't that way. You can't get girls or men to learn the trade now. I could take half a dozen at that time. Now I can't get one. " There's not tho style to a custom-made suit as to a ready-made suit. If you want to pay the price, and pay $50 to $75, of course, you'll get a good custom-made suit. No, you can't get a young man to learn tho trade, nowadays. You couldn't get them to sit down on tho bench and learn It." One 'by one the men who came to Honesdale in the fifties, when the town was nothing but a village, and was hemmed In on all sides by vir gin timber, are retiring from active life, to spend the remainder of their days in peace and quietude. Like tho mighty monarchs of tho forest, who were forced to give way to the woodman's axe, the pioneer merchants are beginning to drop out of tho race one by one, yielding to the Inexorable demands of Father Time HIGH SCHOOL FLOWER EXHIBI.

The theatrical season In Hones dale was opened Tuesday night. when "Beverly of Graustark" was presented before a fair-sized audi ence at the Lyric Theatre. The company was a well-balanced one, and the audience showed Its appre ciation of their good acting by lib eral applause. Robert Lawrence, who figured as "Prince Danton," was recognized by many playgoers as the man who calmed the spectators and averted a threatened panic at the time of the $25,000 Cortright fire last Fall.

E Ainey Chosen as Nominee For Congressional Va cancy Caused by Kipp's Death GETS SEVEN VOTES IN "SNAP CONVENTION" II O M E R GREENE RECEIVES TWO SMALLER COUNTY HASN'T A LOOK-IN. Wayne county was turned down once more. At a meeting of the Republican conferees of the Fourteenth con gressional district held in the par lors of the Oakland House at Sus quehanna, 'Wednesday afternoon, Captain W. D. B. Ainey, of Mont rose, was unanimously chosen as the nominee for the vacancy caus ed by the sudden death of Congress man George W. KIpp, of Towanda. When the meeting was called to order Henry M. Harding, of Tunk hannock, was named as chairman. There were present four conferees from Bradford county, three from Susquehanna county, two from Wayne county and ono from Wyo ming county. W. J. Marsey, of For est City called the meeting to order and M. E. Simons, of Wayne coun ty and E. M. Lyons, of Bradford, were chosen secretaries, and the meeting proceeded with tho nomina tion of candidates. After the presentation of the cre dentials Mr. Maxey offered a resolu tion embodying the rules authoriz ing the meeting and these were adopted and this was folowed by an attempt 'by Mr. Decker, a Wayne county conferee to have the gather ing adjourned for one week as the people from Wayne county felt that It was a snap convention. Their candidate he said was unable to be present as the time was so short that he could not arrange his busi ness so he could get there. While he did not think it would change the result he felt that in the Interest of the eandidate named it would be far better to take the action he sug gested. D. L. Sweet;-of Bradford, opposed tho motion saying the people of his county wanted Ainey and it would be doing them an injustice to fail to jnake a nomination to-day. Mr. Harding, of Wyoming, spoke In the same manner and said he did not suppose it would make any dif ference any way as things were shaped up for 'Mr. Ainey and a de lay of a. week would make no dif ference. The name of Captain Ainey was presented by E. B. Joachin, of tho Bradford county delegation, while that of Attorney Homer Greene, of Honesdale, was 'presented by, the Wayne county conferees. The name of W. N. Reynolds, of Tunkhannock, was presented ny tho Wyoming county conferee. A vote was taken which resulted In Ainey receiving seven votes, Greene, two, and Rey nolds, one. Captain Ainey had re ceived the united support of the Bradford and 'Susquehanna delaga- tlons while Wayne and Wyoming had voted for their favorite sons. Upon the announcement of the vote V. A. Decker of Wayne county moved that the vote 'bo made unani mous and this motion was seconded by "Henry M. Harding, of Wyoming county. The motion prevailed and Captain Ainey was declared the nom inee of the Republican party In the famous old Wilmot-Grow district. Dr. C. H. Rockwell Democratic Can didate. u Tunkhannock, Sept. 7.Tho' Dem ocrats and Keystone conferees' of the Fourteenth Congressional district, composed of Bradford, Susquehanna, Wyoming and Wayne counties, met here today in joint session and nom mated Dr. C.

PLANNING NEW THREE-MILE LAKE The Fairview Lake association, composed of owners of cottages bor- uering on tnat neautuui lake, iorm- erly known as Big Pond, Pike coun ty, is doing good work along the line of improvements and protection for the cottagers. The association is planning to connect Fairview Lake with the Mill Pond, a short distance from the former lake. Tho Mill Pond, like Fairview Lake, is fed principally by springs. By rebuilding the dam at the outlet of the Mill Pond and con necting the two lakes by enlarging tho channel between tho two bodies of water a lake about three miles long can -be made. This can be done by erecting a six foot dam at the outlet of the Mill Pond. Other im provements are contemplated, which if they materialize, will make Fair- view Lake the Ideal resort in this section of the state. The area of this lake is 500 acres. The lake will be restocked. The association recent ly conducted a carnival that was enjoyed hy a large number of people ana arrordea much amusement. Next year the carnival will be made a two-day auair. Tho committee In charge Is composed of A. Stllgor, of New York City, president of Fair- view Lake association; Dr. Harry Smith, Scranton, and G. L. Weitz, also of New York City. The other oiucers of the association are H. J, Atkinson. Hawley. vice-president: W, C. Knapp, Hawley, secretary and treasurer. F. W. Lynch, Scranton, Is attorney for the association. Near the site of tho old mill, at Mill Pond, is one of the most pic turesque spots In that vicinity. The old lumber roads through the woods are arched with bowing trees In and out among tho once-cloared land One Is then in the very heart ot na ture and If he is at all nature-loving his cup Is continually running ovor. REIGLES SMITH. Otto Relgles, of Sherman, Pa., and Miss Phoebe 'Smith, Scott, Pa., were united In marriage on Wednes day, Aug. 30, by Rev. a. u. acott, Deposit, n. i. EDWARD MURTHA IS RENEWING OLD FRIENDSHIPS IN HONES DALE. Edward Murtha, of N6V York city, who had the honor of driving the last boat out of Honesdale on the Dela ware and Hudson Canal, almost thir teen years ago, Is spending several days In town, renewing old friend ships. According to his statement, the last boat of pea coal left Honesdale, Saturday, November 6, 1898. She was numbered 1107 and bore the euphonious name of "Sunshine." Frank Hinzenbecker, of 49 Ger man street, Kingston, Ulster coun ty, New York, captained the barge on her swan trip, and Edward Mur tha was the driver. Peter B. Balles, of Erie street, was one of the gang of men that helped to load the boat "Sunshine" with pea coal at the Union Dock, on that memorable day in November, 1898. The Delaware and Hudson Canal was built in 1828, at a cost of $6, 339,210. It was in operation for al most 71 years, and was finally sold in June, 1899, to the Erie Railroad company. Pessimists In the days of '98 pre dicted that the abandonment of the waterway would mean the wiping of Honesdale from the commercial map. That their predictions were not well-founded is shown by the fact that the Maple City still lives and flourishes; that her manufacturers were never more busily engaged In filling orders; that at the present time and that, notwithstanding the labor troubles of last year, her stores are doing larger ameunt of business than ever before, and labor continues to receive a fair and Increasing wage. STILGER WINS FAIRVIEW LAKEJOTOR RACE Labor Day at Fairview Lake saw the first of a series of three motor boat races, competing for a silver cup to be awarded by A. E. Stllger of Brooklyn, N. Y., to the boat mak ing tho greatest number of points. The preliminary race was run In the morning to settle the handi caps, and under the following rules: That any exceeding In the af ternoon race- their morning time by more than 3 per cent, should be dis qualified; five points should be awarded the person finishing first; three to the second, two to the third and one to, the fourth; the race to be over a triangular course, three times around. The contestants were A. E. Stllger and A. H. Avery, of Brooklyn; Jos. Murray of Hawley, and Y. M. C. A. boat representing Camp Brooklyn. The time in the morning was as follows with Dr. Holden and W. F. Langdon of Brooklyn, and H. J. Atkinson of Hawley, as judges, each ovier run ning his own boat and Schenkle managing thp Camp Brooklyn hoat: Avery 29 minutes, 40 seconds. Stllger, 35 minutes, 32 seconds. Murray, 36 minutes, 58 seconds. Y. M. C. A., 37 minutes, 40 sec onds. At two o'clock in the afternoon with conditions ideal for a race'. and enthusiastic cottagers to cheer on the contestants, the race was started, allowing the following handicaps over Avery, the first man to finish In the morning; Camp Brooklyn, eight minutes; Murray, seven minutes and eighteen seconds; Stllger, five minutes and 52 seconds. The boats started off In the order given above. On the second leg both Stllger and' Murray had passed Schenkle and the race looked hope less for Avery, but he slowly drew up until on tho next turn, as Mur ray neared the last stake, Avery passed Schenklo and Stllger, Mur ray finishing before the rest made the last turn, beating his morning record by ono minute and 13 sec onds which was more than the 3 per cent, agreed upon. Avery came in next, Stllger and Schenkle coming in close together. The time was as follows: Murray 35 minutes, 45 seconds Avery 29 minutes, 21 seconds. Stllgor 36 minutes, 56 seconds.

While tightening a cable by means of a stick in one end of a twisted wire, Isaac Lobb, who was assisting in making some repairs at tho coal shutes Wednesday morning, received an ugly cut over the left eye. The accident was caused by the stick striking Mr. Lobb. His eye Is badly swollen, but the sight Is not Impair ed. Dr. L. B. Nielsen attended the injured man. WHAT'S IN A NAME? O. II. Hell Did Not Want to Em blazon Cognomen in Electricity. Now York. O. H. Hell applied to County Judge Grant in Brooklyn for an order changing his name to Otto Hill for business reasons. " I am about to open a confection ery store," said Mr. Hell, " and I want my last name In big electric letters over the door. I don't think It would look very well." " Tho court agrees with you," Mr. Hell," said Judge Grant. " Bring in the papers and I'll approve them." Mr. and Mrs. Frank Torwllliger spent Sunday and Labor Day with Mr. TerwIUlgor's brother in Dalton. Editor F. J. F. Warg of the Haw ley Times Is spending a two weeks' vacation In New York City. New Courses of Study Added to Curriculum EVERYBODY ON THK dOU AVHEN SCHOOL OPENED TUESDAY MORNING. Long before 9 o'clock, Tuesday morning, the streets of Honesdale were filled with hundreds of bright faced, rosy-cheeked boys and girls, who flocked to the $65,000 High school building on Church street, where they registered for the term of 1911-1912. According to Superintendent of Schools, Prof. Harry A. Oday, 167 pupils enrolled In the High school and 8,16 In the grades, a total of 483. Only twenty new children entered the primary grade, a remarkable feature, which Is easily accounted for by the fact that Honesdale bor ough hasn't been enlarged of late years. With rents averaging from $20 to $25, a man must earn pretty fair wages to enjoy the privilege of living in tho aristocratic confines of the City of Hone. Workingmen do not reside in the borough in large numbers, that is, men who work In shops and factor ies. They live in the Texas's and In the suburbs. Several new courses have been, added this year, viz. Commercial Geography, Commercial Arithmetic, Mechanical Drawing and a full year's work in Agriculture. A num ber of the advanced students are taking up these practical elective studies. There are thirty-eight members In the Senior Class, and the Freshman Class numbers exactly sixty-two. Forty new arm chairs, for recita tion purposes, have been placed in the annex room. In the High school room, instead of installing new desks, twenty chairs and twenty tables were added to accomodate new students. Only one change of text-books was made, Lelnbarger's "Physics" sup planting "Carhart atfd 'Shute's." Flve-and-one-half hours a day are. set aside -for purposes of instruction. School opens at 9 a. m. and re mains In session until noon. The afternoon session convenes at 1:30 o'clock and closes at 4 p. m. The little folks are allowed a 15 minute Indoor recess. The first grade Is dismissed at 3:15 p. m. " Last year," said Prof.. Oday. "we closed -the first-month with an enrollment of 352 in the grefdes, and 159 in the High school. I can't see that we have lost very many pupils from people moving away." All of the teachers wore at their posts of duty, Tuesday morning, save Miss Mary Menner, Latin in structor in tho High school, who has been spending the Summer abroad. She sailed for America September 2, and is expected home September 11. In the meantime her sister, Miss Dorothy Menner, is acting as her substitute. One additional teacher was em ployed last Summer, Miss Florence Brown, who has charge of the Ger man classes, and brings the total number of Instructors up to sixteen. The personnel of the faculty of the Honesdale 'Public Schools for 1911-1912 is as follows: High School Prof. H. A. Oday, Ph. B Supervising Principal (Sci ence); Prof. R. T. Davies, Ph. B., vice-principal (German and Sci ence); Miss Alice Z. Gregory, (Eng lish); Miss Edith K. Swift (English, History); Miss 'Mary A. Menner, A. B (Latin, History); Miss Florence Brown, Ph. B. (German and Mathe matics). Grammar Department Eighth grade Mrs. Alma J. G. Dix; sev enth grade Mrs. W. A. Sluman; sixth grade Miss Theresa B. Soeto; fifth grade Miss Elizabeth Baird. Primary Department Fourth grade Miss Edith Tolley; third grade Miss Anna Seaman; second gra() Miss Caroline Stephens; first grade Miss Mattie Gillen; primary Miss Jennie S. Lee; supervisor of music Miss Harriet Arnold. ' Wo are affected very little by tho provisions of tho new School Code," said Prof. Oday. " There are several of tho features of the Code wo have required from pupils for years, especially, the two seasons of entering. Wo did not allow children to enter at any time." The wheels of tho school machin ery are moving along smoothly, and tho prospects for a successful year aro very bright. Prof. Oday confessed to a Citizen man " that he didn't gain any In weight during his six weeks' vaca tion, but ho "rested his mind." And ho needed it, if the demands made upon his time, during the brief in terview granted tho Citizen man, aro any index of what is going on every day. What the teachers and schol ars didn't como In and ask him for, Isn't worth mentioning. Their re quests ranged all the way from pen cils on up to school books, note books, and even to a copy of tho new school code! No ono asked him for money at least not while the reporter was there! ASH DRIVER FINDS 2,000. Now York. Michael Scudno, driver of an ash cart in Bayonne, N. J found a bag containing $2,000 in cash in a barrel which ho emptied. Ho remembered where ho had got the bag and took it back. He says he was rewarded with a gift of seventy-five cents.
