.nr. uuu mrs. mciiura J. x'euwai-
den, 1414 East street, will celebrate:
their golden wedding anniversary on
Christmas Day In the afternoon, by
giving a private reception to a num
ber of their most Intimate friends.
Richard J. Penwarden wooed and
won his bride, while a clerk In Ham
lin and KIrkland's establishment, and
their nuptials were solemnized In
tho Allen House, December 24, 1861,
tho Rev. L. O. Grinnell officiating.
Following the wedding, an elaborate
dinner was served In their honor at
the Allen House.
Miss Jane Smith (for such was tho
bride's maiden name), was an only
daughter of Fred Smith and his wife
Sarah (Oakes). Her father was
quite a lumberman and lived near
the Baptist church In Berlin. Smith
Hill, a town In Berlin, was named
after hery grandfather, one of the
first settlers In that region.
Shortly after their marriage Mr.
and Mrs. Penwarden went on a farm
which they bought In Oregon town
ship. The happy couple had been
at housekeeping' but a year, before
tho husband was drafted, and was
obliged to pay $1,000 to secure a
After spending several years on
tho farm, Mr. and Mrs. Penwarden
moved to Carley Brook, where he
went to work for his brother, Wil
liam Penwarden. Some time Later
they removed to Honesdale, where
Mr. Penwarden was In the employ of
William Beers for eleven or twelve
years. For a number of years Mr.
Penwarden has been manager or tno
Penwarden Manufacturing Co.
When Mr. and Mrs. Penwarden
first moved to Honesdale they lived In
the Rehbein house for several years,
later building their present commodi
ous home at 414 East street where
they have lived for the past thirty-
Mrs. Penwarden was born October
"25, 1843, and consequently Is just
past 08 years or age. Her nuspana
is about six months younger, being
ibprn June 16, 1844. Three daugh
ters were born to Diess tneir union,
two of whom died years ago. Their
only living daughter, Delia, is mar
ried to Harvey B. weisn ana resiues
on the second floor of the Penwar
den home. An only granddaughter,
Elma E., was married to Wm. F.
Donald, and resides at the same ad
When seen Wednesday afternoon
by a Citizen man, Mrs. Penwarden
talked quite freely of the happy life
she and her busband have lived to
gether for the past half century.
"I feel quite young," sne said,
although we've had lots of trouble.
Wo ouEht to be thankful things are
as well as they are. We are Metho

"Indeed, tho Lord has prospered

school, when we married. Ho only
earned $10 a month. Kee wnat we
have done for ourselves. I married
a poor man. I believe folks get
along well If they get married young.
I don't feel old at all."
Unknowingly Mrs. Penwarden
gave Just the right sort of advice to
young people on "how to be happy
thouch married." Don't cherish
erudees! Save your money!! Give
to the Lord!!!
And what's stll more to the point,
and an excellent thing for young
Benedicts to do is to follow Mr. Pen
warden's example, and not chew,
drink or smoke. "No," said Mrs.
Penwarden, "he hadn't the money
to smoke away in those early days!"
AS IT COMES!
'At the Seelyvllle Fire Hall on
-Tuesday, December 19, tho "Rink
Five" of Honesdale met their first
defeat in eight games played this
season. It was the most exciting
game ever seen in Seelyvllle, the
Honesdale boys leading at enr enu

And of course the game wasn't
rough. Oh, no; most of the time
you would see the ball In a corner

" It ain't everybody lives to bo
seventy-five. They all say I'm the
youngest-looking three-quarter cen
tury man around here."
John E. Richmond, the well
known music teacher of 918 Church
street, celebrated the seventy-fifth
anniversary of his birth In a quiet
manner last Wednesday, his wife's
serious illness forcing him to change
his plans of inviting in seventy-five
friends, and having a good time in
honor of the occasion.
Mr. Richmond enjoys the proud
distinction of being tho oldest son of
a youngest son, his father being
Nelson C. Richmond, and his grand
father, Dr. Richmond, of Revolution
ary Army fame. East 'Haddam,
Conn., was his birthplace. He Is the
last of that particular Richmond
clan from which he Is descended.
Mr. Richmond has lived lnHones
dale since 1865, coming .here from
Carbondale, where he lived eleven
years. In the Pioneer City he had
a half interest in the general mer
cantile business conducted by him
self and Wm. H. Richmond at Dun
daff and Salem streets.
Coming to Honesdale In 1865 he
entered the employ of Mr. Snyder as
clerk in his dry goods' store. In
1869 he went into business for -him
self as proprietor of the only exclu
sive dry goods store in the county.
In 1879 he 'sold out, and has been
living a retired life ever since, If
lodklng after thirteen or fourteen
tenants, and selling 900 pianos, can
be called leading the simple life.
Mr. Richmond loves to be busy. He
loves to sell a musical instrument,
according to his d jjatatement, as
much as he loves hi.Shner.
The Citizen man whahalled to see
Mr.- Richmond wantedljto find out
"how to keep young."
"By keeping on the bright side of
things," replied Mr, Richmond.

"Pulling from his left hip-pocket

gospel he was considered among the
best In the Wyoming conference. Ho

music to several religious hymns and
gospel songs. One of the most fa
miliar is the oft sung piece "I'm
a Child of a King." The music was
composed when Rev. Sumner was a
young man and In some manner some
one stole the copyright which pre

muneration for his work. Mr. Sum

THE BEST PLACE TO
BUY XMAS GOODS
Is Right Hero In Honesdale Every
Storo Has Complete Line.
Boforo local people send money
away from homo to metropolitan de
partment stores and mail OTaer
houses why not look around the
home stores and see what the home
merchant has done 'for you?
Honesdale merchants have not
stood still the past few years. They
nut in larcor stocks of holiday and
Winter goods than ever before. They
study the market carefully, buy of
responsible wholesale nouses and get
goods that are botn stynsn ano bud
stantlal. Kood for permanent wear.
Tho excuse Is sometimes maoe
that the metropolitan storo has
larger assortment of goods. But
this larger assortment Is commonly
of use to but few buyers. Tho
great department store, for the sake
of Its reputation ior completeness,
has to carry a large amount of very
costly goods to meet the whims of
very wealthy people, it you want c
narlor rue costlnc from iu to fiuu
It is of but little use to you that
the metropolitan storo has a full lino
of $1,000 Orientals.
Furthermore, the carrying of these
great assortments Is an expense that
all has to come out of the consumer.
It means sacrifice sales when goods
become out of date, and the original
price has to be high enough to pay
for all these losses.
The supreme advantage of buying
at home Is that you can do the snop-
ping at your leisure, and always see
the goods personally. The purohase
made by mall Is a reckless plunge
Into a grabJbag of unknown con
tents. Even when on an excursion
to tho great city you see the goods
personally, your time Is usually so
limited that you don't have the op
portunity for consideration afforded
by the leisurely visit to the homo
store. The results are apt to be cor
