William H. Ham, one of Hones
dale's best known citizens and form
er councilman of this borough, stated
to a Citizen representative on Tues
day that upon his recommendation
the borough purchased steam Are
engines to replace the hand pumps.
" The boys," he stated, " became
lazy and would not work at fires.
The borough could not stand for
anything like this as the town might
burn up Just on account of the lack
of ambition on the part of the fire
men by not working the pump en
gine. I believe It was in 1862 wnen
I was on the council and I held out
for steamers to replace the old pump
engines. It was two years after
wards before the steamers were or
dered. The ' Atkinson ' was pur
chased first and this was followed
shortly by the 'R. W. Ham.' I was
thinking how nice it would be and it
would also furnish something for the
people to talk about if the firemen
in their parade on Friday would di
vide their procession into eectlons.
For instance, In the first section have
men carrying palls, representing the
bucket brigade. Then If an old pump
engine could be secured or rigged
up it would demonstrate in a way
the facilities we used to have to
fight fires. In a second division
the firemen could wear red shirts and
caps; showing an advance. The
third section could represent' some
of the oldest members of the or!
elnal companies, Nos. 1, 2 and 3,
and the fourth section would consist
of the up-to-date firemen with their
chemical engines and other modern
apparatus .for fighting fire."

Wednesday said: A man widely

R. Henwood. His was a particu
larly familiar figure in Providence,
where he was a very active pharmac
ist for a long time. For many years
he was a partner with his brother,
Charles Henwood, In North Scran
ton. He had a very wide circle of
friends and was always most success
ful In business. He was a brother
of the well-known Scranton business
man, Walter L. Henwood, from
whose home the funeral topk place.
That the ground Is full of mois
ture Is evident by the streams over
flowing their banks. The Lacka

river Is as high as it is In the

scarcity of water this fall, Nature
having well provided for the springs
and riverlets. The recent rains have
prevented forest fires, whleh in turn
protects the game birds and animals.

thing to do whereby they can ful
fill their scout law In doing at least
one kind deed without pay every
day. As Scout Master Jenkins re'
turned by auto, ho passed through
the towns of New York state, and

they have given their services.

WHAT IS THE USE?
By S. S. Koblnson.
Oh, what 1b the use of complaining,
When Poverty knocks at your
While Fortune, to smile, Is disdain
As shyly she treasures her store.
Oh, what Is the use to 'be grumbling,
When clouds hide the sun from
And thunders nre angrily rumbling,
Behind Is perpetual blue.
Oh, what Is the use to be whining,
When things In this world go
There's nothing (o gain by repining,
All things will come right by and
Oh, what Is the use of complaining?
Be brave, in the Battle of Life!
Each conquest some Victory gaining,
Rejoice, In the midst of the strife!

Ingenious Methods of Producing
The Ingenuity of man Is exercised
to a wonderful degree in the creation
of novel and seemingly Impossible
situations and episodes for produc
tion In the moving picture shows,
and audiences are often bewildered
In trying to decide how the curious
effects, Which at times seem to con
tradict the laws of nature, are se
cured. Yet, like the conjurer's
tricks, It is all very simple when tho
veil Is lifted.
There are some scenes depicted
which, while amazing enough In their
way, do not puzzle the critical be
holder in solving the ways and
means of tuelr making. There are
the railroad accident, obtained by
means of children's toys; tho war
ships and the aeroplanes, which are
also photographs of playthings; the
burglar In his unheard of perform
ance of climbing the front of a
house, and last, but not least the
man clinging to the celling of a
room. Tho pictures explain them
selves. But when we see a man Jumping
out of a fourth story window, see
him fall fifty feet to" the ground and
then get up and run away unhurt, we
ask. How is this possible? The
origin of tho picture Is very simple.
The fugitive jumps out of a low win
dow in the studio, which is fitted up
in the style of the desired Toom.
Then the photographing process Is In
terrupted. The next picture is tak
en In the street in front of a real
house. 'A life sized puppet Is drop
ped from one of the windows. When
it has reached the ground' the ma
chine stops, the actor puts himself In
the place of the figure, the reel Is
started again, tho man gets up and
In like manner auto accidents and
similar episodes are arranged.
Another Impossibility a man
swims through a river and on the
other side he climbs a ten foot wall
without difficulty. Origin of the pic
tures: The man is photographed slid
ing from the wall into the water, but
In taking the picture the reel Is
turned wrong way, so tho motion Is
reversed when the picture is reeled
oft in the right direction.
Tho last obstacle in representing
the seemingly Impossible was cleared
away when some clover mind con
ceived the Idea of stopping the pho
tographing process, not after a series
of pictures, but after each single pic
ture or after each two or three of
them. Tho work Involved was enor
mous, as eighteen pictures are taken
every second that Is to say, about
50,000 pictures are required for a
reel, which is to amuse the public
only ten minutes I Hut human per
severance has accomplished the task,
and the results obtained are extra
ordinary. The following examples
will prove It:
A pile of small stones Is put on a
black table, and the apparatus is fas
tened vertically above the stones.
Then a short turn of the crank, and a
few Identical pictures of the stone
pile are taken. One of the stones Is
then removed from the pile; anoth
er short turn, which gives two or
three pictures showing the first
stories separate from the pile. The
process Is repeated until the stones
laid aside by hand show the writing,
" Good Night!" The finished film
does not show the hand that remov
ed one stone after another, but cre
ates the impression that the stones
arrange themselves in the form of
Instead of tho stones, a lump of
clay may be placed on the table and
some kind of a figure Is gradually
modeled from It by hand; but, this
hand being Invisible, It seems as If
the figure formed Itself.
High Elevation on Jefferson.
Attention was called recently to a
fact of which comparatively few peo

of any standard guage railroad In the

that "A scout is trustworthy." His
honor Is to be trusted. If he were
to violate his honor by telling a He,

badge. He Is not to "swipe" fruit,
nor 'be dishonest In school, nor try
to slide out of anything he deserves
by telling a He. This point of the
scout law Is perhaps the most Im
