Discarded, and forsaken, In the gar
ret it stands,
Laid away years ago by affectionate
Disjointed and marred by long years
of wear
Is that precious old relic, my Grand
father's chair.
As I gaze at Its form In the dim attic
Its presence brings back fond mem
ories bright,
Of the days when It stood by the old
stone-fire place
And Grandfather seated In Its gener
ous space.
Oh, my Grandfather's chair hid away
In the garret,
That precious old relic of days long
With joy I now hasten again to re
store it,
To its time-honored place in the fire
light's bright glow.
Beloved "by all the household was
that ancient old chair
In Its soft cushioned seat I have of
ten sat there
Watching my mother turn the old
spinning wheel
Or winding the yarn on tho cumber
some reel.
Tho hum of the spindle, the click of
the reel,
Would, lull me to sleep, and mothor
would steal
Close to my side and stroke my
brown hair,
Then cover me up in my Grandfath
er's chair.
Each morning we would gather by
that sacred old chair,
While Grandfather led in family
From tho Bible he read a chapter or
Then he knelt by that chair as ho al
ways .would "do.
One night as he sat in that old
chair he died,
I had fallen asleep in the seat by his
And when I am called from this
world and care,
May tney nnd me at rest in my
uranaratner s cnair.

Dear Friend Ben:
It Is with pleasure that I note that
you havo the "Dunbar Company"
booked for to-morrow night, for it
affords many of us an opportunity
to witness for the second time their
performance which Is far above tho
ordinary. They played here on Sat
urday last, and everyone was per
fectly delighted with their enter
tainment. You cannot recommend
them too highly. I know their work
will pleaso your patrons.

At the regular meeting of the di
rectors of the Farmers' and Mo
chnlcs' Bank, held on Tuesday, Nov.
14, 1911, It was unanimously re
solved that in tho death of John
Kuhbach, Honesdale loses one of its
foremost residents, one who was al
ways anxious to assist in the
promotion of any thing he believed
to bo for tho advancement of tho in
terests of Honesdale and vicinity.
He was one of the organizers of our
Bank and became a director at the
time of its pormanent organization
and continued as such until the time
of his death. Wo desire at this
time to show our appreciation for
his services and to express our re
grets nt his death in tho prime of
life. We also desire to tender to his
family, our heartfelt sympathy at
their lrreparablo loss, and that a
copy of these resolutions be placed
upon our minutes.
