THE LINEUP IN THE
BOYS PLAYED LIKE OLD
First Appearance of Jenkins' Band in
Did you hear Jenkins' boy band at
the Lyric last Tuesday night?
Well, if you didn't, you missed ono
of tho finest treats of your life. And
say, tho Lyric theatre was Jammed
full to the doors and some were com
pelled to stand throughout the en
tire performance, which consisted of
moving pictures and the rendition of
music by the band, but they didn't
mind that as long as they heard
Jenkins' boy band. It was great.
Twenty young men, and all under
17 years of age, played like "old
timers." Tho music filled Lyric
theatre and the boys were heartily
applauded. Some of tho boys never
played musical Instruments .until
their first practice four months ago,
and then they thought they would
never learn to play because the horn
"tickled their Hps." Others put the
mouthpiece right In their mouths,
but by persistent effort on the part of
the boys under tho personal super
vision of Robert M. Dorln, Jenkins'
band has taken the town by storm.
Feeling tho need of a deeper In
terest of music In Honesdale
prompted F. A. Jenkins to organ
ize the boys hand, which is not only
appreciated by the townspeople 'but
retlects great credit upon tho organ
izer and owner of tho hand.
The band Is composed of tho fol
lowing young men. Tho list also

a good band Is the 'best advertise

THE "BELL" HOME WELCOMES
Every Day is Visitors' Day nt the
Bell Telephone Home A Trip
Through Offices Is Afforded
You may ho as grouchy and dls
agreoahlo as you please to tho tele
phone operator who answers your
call with a mild " Number pleaso,"
but you will always, nevertheless, be
treated with unfailing courtesy In
return. After tho operator has re
turned a pleasant voice over the wire
In exchange for your growl, you will
soon, with a little reflection, como
to recognize tho groat truth that, ''a
soft answer turneth away wrath."
And again If you would take tho
time to visit tho hono of tho Boll
Telephone company you would soon
decldo that If you wero tho operator
you would bo tho grouchlest, tho
most disagreeable person In tho
world. Confronted with a switch
board with flashing lights, plugs,
wires, and calls, tho telephone oper
ator retains her equanimity while
you on tho outside aro yelling at her
ovor tho wire to hurry up and at tho
samo time muttering things under
your breath. Taking into considera
tion the numerous and various de
tails of the telephone operator's
daily routine, the subscriber should
feel inclined to facilitate her work
all ho can. Ono thing ho can do,
that many fail to do, is to call by
number. If you don't know tho
number look It up In tho telephone
directory and If It Is not listed there,
then tho operator will bo glad to
glvo It to you. Be considerate of
the operator as she Is always con
siderate of you. Don't think she
has all the time In tho world, but
rather, as the fact Is, the busiest
person In the borough. Tho popular
conception of a telephone exchange
Is, a place where two girls pass away
their time eating candy and reading
Last Thursday we had tho pleas
ure to be conducted through tho lo
cal exchange 'by Mr. Dellmore, and
although we did not grasp all or the
technical details of tho complicated
workings or the system, wo gained
a complete knowledge of the Inside
workings of the exchange, which
will help us to be moro appreciative
of the good service hereafter. V. ;A.
Dellmore, tho local agent for tho
Bell, has been permitting the general
public io get a glimpse into the
workings of tho local ofrice. Every
day Is visitors' day and "business
men and others desiring to go
through on an inspection tour will
bo conducted by Mr. Dellmore, and
they will have tho pleasure of see
ing tho operators at their work be
side having tho various details or tho
system explained to them. It Is
worth the time ot tho busiest man to
visit this institution where business
hums all tho time. Between the
hours ot 9 and 10 o'clock In the
morning and 7 and 8 at night, the
operators have all they can do and
perhaps more, and through It all they
never once attempt any 'back talk
to a subscriber who kicks because
he has been waiting at least thirty
seconds for an answer to his call.
To go through this Institution, to
see the operators at work, to have
tho workings explained to you, the
toll lines, the rural lines, the town
lines, and to see at tho switchboard
a demure young lady answering the
calls of hundreds of subscribers,
then It Is that you wonder why she
don't get all mixed up. This is the
best euro in tho world for that In
clination to growl over tho telephone
and be Impatient If she does not
connect you with your party within
less than no time at all.
(District Manager E. T. Simons, lo
cal manager T. A. Garvey, and local
agent W. A. Dellmore, are "building
up a system of working conditions
for operators that will not only
clinch courtesy as tho motto of the
ofllco, !but will gradually teach the
people of Honesdale that there Is

-Mrs. William A. PeUilck.
Death has called to her reward on
of Bethany's most respected resi
dents, Mrs. Lavlna, widow of William
A. Pethlck. Mrs. Pethlck was bom
in England, June 12, 1840, and came
over with her parents, William and
Dorothea Paling, when a child to
Canada, making their home there.
She was married to William A. Peth
lck of Bethany on November 17.
1861, and survived her husband nine
years. She Is survived by three
daughters, iRena, wife of G. H. Grif
fin, Hornell, N. Y.; Lottie, wire or
Henry A'. Bennett, of Bethany; Eliza
beth, wilo or John Smith, or Beth
any, and one son, Harry W. of Haw
ley. Ono sister, Mrs. Eliza Davis, of
Princeton, Canada, also survives. She
contracted a cold a week ago and It
had a firmer grip on her system than
was at first realized and developed
into pneumonia; her heart being
weakoned, there was little hope to
build on nnd she passed peacefully
away at eight o'clock Thursday
morning at the homo ot her daughter,
Mrs. John Smith. Everything possi
ble waBdono Tor her conirort, a train
ed nurso was In attendance nnd the
best medical skill but all to no avail.
Mrs. Pethlck was or a retiring dis
position and round great pleasuro in
her home, also ot a cheerful disposi
tion as those who know her best can
tostlfy. Many charitable and kindly
deeds performed by Mrs. Pothlck are
known but thoro Is no doubt that
many more aro' unknown save to
those who found her a friend In time
of need. Whatever sho did In this
way was always did quietly and
with every desire to avoid publicity.
Sho will bo missed In her homo, by
her children, In tho church work and
by her numerous friends.
