ONE WAY TO SAVE COAL.
Don't complain If your coal bills are high this winter. It will ho your
own fault. To fill one's home with a hot, dry air, as most people do, Is
both expensive and unhealthful. Tuberculosis, pneumonia and colds He
in wait for persons living In this kind of atmosphere.
On the other hand, properly moistened air does not have to bo heated
to as great a temperature as dry air In order to be made comfortable.
When you feel cold, therefore, Instead of seeing whether the furnace
needs fuel, find out if the air does not want water. On a cold day the win
dows of your room should have the perspired look of a kitchen window
on washday. In very hold weather the panes ought to be frosted. If you
find this Is not the case, the air probably needs a drink.
Place a pan of water In the room, or if you have steam 'heat, allow a
little of the steam-to escape. You will soon feel comfortable although the
temperature of the room will not have risen. With properly moistened
air a room need not be heated to more than G4 degrees Kard de Sch

NEXT ELECTION TO BE STATE
Pennsylvania will elect a State
Treasurer and probably an Auditor
General, four Congressmen-at-Large,
thirty-two district Congressmen, thirty-eight
presidential electors, twenty-
five Senators and 207 members of the
Houso of Representatives next year.
The next election will bo a national
and State affair, and no municipal or
county officers will be chosen. Neith
er will any Judges of the Courts of
Common Pleas bo elected.
Tho primaries will be held In
April Instead of September, owing to
the fact that delegates to national
and State conventions must be chos
en early. The State conventions will
be held shortly after tho primaries.
The election of State Treasurer
comes under the decision of the Su
preme Court in the case decided in
1910, when It was hold that Charles
Frederick Wright, appointed State
Treasurer to fill the term ifor which
J. A. Stober was elected, but did not
should serve out the term.
A contest to determine whether the
Auditor General can be legally elect
ed next year or whether he must
come up for election In 1914 will
probably be inaugurated when the
nomination Is made.
The Congressmen-at-Large will be
elected because no apportionment of
the State has been made since the
1910 census results were announc
ed and until new districts are creat
ed by the Legislature this will be
The Senators to be elected aro
from odd numbered districts and
comprise one-half of the number.
WORLD'S PRODUCTION OF COAL.
WE SHOULD EAT FIVE APPLES A DAY,
Every man, woman and child in the United States should eat five ap
ples a day this winter, according to an appeal from the growers. Five
apples a day for each of 90,000,000 people would mean 450,000,000 ap
ples; but tho country's orchards are perfectly capable of standing the
strain. The United States government has forecast a crop at least 25 per
cent. In excess of last year's crop of 14,000,000 barrels; but as a matter
of fact, tho big apple shippers of this vicinity do not hesitate to assert that
fully 20,000,000 barrels will bo disposed of, leaving out of consideration
thousands of bushels of apples used for drying, for preserving, and for
cider, and those left on the trees or ground to waste.
It is the farmers of the country that is to say, the apple farmers
w'ho have set up the plea for every person to eat five apples a day. They
base their plea on two considerations. In the first place, they state, eat
lng five apples a day will be very beneficial to everybody. In the second
place, such a steady consumption of fruit will be extremely usful to the
apple industry. It will probably mean that there will be no leftovers in the
( storage warehouse. Five apples a day for each of 90,000,000 people for a
whole winter would mean that there would be nothing left of the eating
WHY SOME TOWNS GROW.
In every county and In every state can be found towns that are con.
tinually forging ahead while others in the same vicinity remain practically
at a standstill and accomplish nothing in the way of improvements or
advancement. In every case the fault can be found to rest, not with the
town, but with the people themselves.
Tho reason why some towns grow Is because they have men inutheni
with push and energy who are not afraid to spend their time, money and
energy on anything that will boom and benefit the town. They have con
fidence enough In their town to erect substantial and modern buildings and
residences and work for public improvements on the same order. They
organize stock companies and establish factories, induce industrial enter
prises to locate and use every means to further the hest interests of the
town. Their work is never considered finished and a compllshment of one
thing is only an incentive to another.
On the other hand the town that does not get ahead will be found to
be dominated by either a set of men who are perfectly satisfied with their
surroundings or who are afraid somebody else will be benefited in the event
something is started, consequntly no effort of any kind is made by this
class for these two reasons. If some man or set of men endeavor to start
something they are met by opposition and discouragement and it is uphill
work all the way and very often failure.
Every town however has a certain progressive element which hopes
for a turn of the tide when it will go forward by leaps and bounds and
occupy a position of importance along with other numerous advantages
and Interests which go to make a good town in every sense the term im
plies. But this stage cannot be accomplished by mere wishes or sugges
tions. It can only come from harmony in purpose, and action and the
eternal vigilance of its citizens. The town with these' things will con
tinue to grow and improve but the town without them can be expected
to remain in a state of lethargy Indefinitely without affording its residents
anything but a mere existence.
A CHANCE TO HELP MAKE HONESDALE GROW.
Elsewhere in this issue of Tho Citizen the Greater Honesdale Board of
Trade gives the people of Honesdale and Wayne county an opportunity to
do something for their town and county. What Is a benefit to the county
is a benefit to the individual. The Board, after careful investigation,
takes pleasure in presenting to the public 1,300 shares of non-assessable
stock, par value $10, of the Globe Yarn company, now doing a business
of $30,000 per year and showing a profit of .077 per cent, on the gross
output. Under careful management, proper facilities for manufacturing
and sufficient working capital the concern can earn on the most conser
vative estimate a net profit of 10 per cent, on the gross output. The out
put can be increased within a year to $50,000.
Tho goods manufactured are a staple article that sell very Teadlly and
without tho aid of expert salesmen. The demand through tho malls ex
ceeds $50,000. For further Information concerning the now established
business read the advertisement.
Much has been said about Honesdale's future, but Its prosperity lies
in Its manufactories and natural resources. Now that the glass cutters'
strike has been declared off by Organizer Robert Luckock, the town will
be in better shape to do .business. Honesdale is in bettor condition to-day
than it has been in some time. The worklngman is happy, ho owns his
property and wages received are satisfactory. The manufacturer Is doing
more business every day and his future is bright. The business man, In
turn, by the prosperous condition of the Industries, is busy and as a whole
everybody is benefited. More industries in Honesdale means more busi
ness. In other words, by helping Honesdale grow you will prosper.
We will venture to say that there Is not a young man or woman in
Wayno county but what is Interested In the development of the
county and Honesdalo. There is no better way to demonstrate this spirit
of civic pride than by subscribing for one or more shares of tho Globe
Yarn Company's stock at $10 per share, par value. Subscribers to stock
will not be called upon to pay until subscriptions to the entire $13,000
Has been received, when a call for 10 per cent, will be made and the bal
ance called for as needed.
The Board of Trade has appointed W. W, Wood solicitor who is county
treasurer-elect. If it need be he will call upon you in your Wayne county
home and will cheerfully explain AH details connected with the enterprise.
Don't wait for Mr. Wood to call drop Tilm a postal if you aro Interested
In making Honesdale and Wayne county the manufacturing county of
Northeastern Pennsylvania. Act now,
United States Exceeds all Other
Countries in 1010 Great Britain
Second, but Over 200 Million Tons
The total coal 'production of tho
world in 1910 was approximately
1,300,000,000 short tons, of which
the United States contributed about
39 per cent. This country has far
outstripped all others, and in 1910,
according to the United States Geo
logical Survey, it exceeded Great
Britain, which ranks second, by ovor
200,000,000 tons. Great Britain's
production In 1910 was less than GO
per cent, of that of the United States
ana uermanys was less tnan nair,
The increase in 'both of these coun
tries in lUiu over 19 ua was com
paratively small, whereas the in
crease in tho United States was near
ly equal to the entire production of
France and was more than the total
production of any foreign country
except Great Britain, Germany, Aus
tria-Hungary and France.
The United States has held first
place among the coal-producing
countries of the world since 1899,
when it surpassed Great Britain. In
the 11 years since 1899 the annual
output of the United States has
nearly doubled, from 253,741,192
short tons to 501.59G.378 tons,
whereas that of Great Britain has in
creased only 20 per cent., from 246,-
506,155 short tons to 296,007, G99

BIG CHEESE OF 1011
RECALLS THAT OF 1801
Jefferson's Election AVns Celebrated
by Making Big Present For tho
It Is announced that the big cheese
which was planned at Appleton, Wis.,
for exhibit at the National Dairy
Show in Chicago, October 26 to No
vember 4, is completed. This
cheese, It Is stated, will weigh 12,-
000 pounds, or six tons. It contains
the milk from 10,000 cows, has been
finished and photographed, and Is
claimed to be " the largest unit of
human nourishment in existence on
the globe." The cheese Is now rip
ening, and is said to bo perfect in
every detail of its making. It will
be a great advertisement for the Wis
consin cheese making industries.
The big mass will be the star at
traction at the Chicago Dairy Show,
This cheese is ten feet In diameter
and twelve to fifteen feet high, and it
will bo necessary to have a ladder
by the side of it so that the people
can go up and look at the top.
The account of this big Appleton
cheese causes the Springfield (Mass.)
Republican to tell the story of an
other big cheese made by the Jef
ferson Democrats at Berkshire, the
western county of Massachusetts, in
1801. Elder Leland was the en
thuslastic projector of that cheese,
and his memory is revered in con
nection therewith. The cheese was
made in Cheshire and shipped to
Washington, and there presented
with great ceremony to President
Thomas Jefferson. The cheese was
about one-tenth as large as the pres
ent big cheese. When the news of
Jefferson's election was confirmed
Elder Leland called on the Jefferson'
lan Democrats to contribute to make
the big cheese. No federal contrlbu
tlon was received.
A mass meeting was held and Dar
ius Brown was put in charge of
making the cheese. Elder Leland
was commissioned to take it to

dent Jefferson. The cheese was four
feet in diameter and eighteen in
ches high. Elder Leland gave the
cheese to President Jefferson as a
present on New Year's Day, 1802.
The presentation address, prepared
by a committee, of five prominent
citizens of Cheshire was read. In
response 'President Jefferson return
ed his warmest thanks to the peo
ple, saying that he looked upon his
New Year's gift as a token of the
fidelity of the very hearts of the
people of the land to the great
cause of equal rights to all men.
Then, at a signal from tho Presi
dent the steward of the White House
carved the big cheese in the presence
of the Cabinet, foreign diplomats and
many distinguished men and women.
Dig slices were handed wlth'bread to
those present until all had been
served. One by one the company
was then introduced by the President
to Elder Leland, who was highly
honored by his trip, both go!nj and
coming. On the Sunday following
his returns to Cheshire the church
was crowded with people, who lis
tened to the narrative of his Journey
and heard tho President's message
There aro now no more territories,
save our colonial possessions. The
vast region from the Atlantic to the
Pacific and from the lakes to the
Itio Grande is one compact nation of
states. In place of tho original thir
teen, fringing the eastern seaboard,
there are forty-eight, comprising 3,
000,000 square -miles, with almost
all varieties of climate, scenery and
industry, the home of 90,000,000
Americans the greatest territory
and population ever welded together
In one nation of free peoplo. The
extent of the two new states in it
self is enough to stir the Imagina
tion, for this last and comparatively
trivial addition to the body of fed
eralized commonwealths Is as great
as the extent of the thirteen parent
As -far as political organization is
concerned, the building of the feder
al structure is now complete, says
the Boston Traveler. There can be
no more states without the cleavage
of those already existing, and such
a development Is merely a possibility
of the tar future. Other states
'here may be in time, In Alaska, the
Philippines, the Hawaiian Islands,
tho isthmus, the West Indies, or else
where, but it will doubtless be long
before there is another star added to
the forty-eight of the new flag.
