YES, IT WILL BE FREE SUGAR FOR THE TRUST AND NO
BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY FOR ANY OF US.
Four years ago, the class of 1312
entered the Honesdale High school,
as Freshmen. The ceaseless inarch
of time has brought us to that point
where our ways must part. The
hour has come when wo must say
"good-bye." Therefore, dear friends
as wo are about to take leave of
these, the happiest years of our life.
1 ask you to loltor with me In one
last word of retrospect and farewell.
Honorable members of tho School
Board, who havo made these grad
uating exercises possible, this even
ing, dear friends, and teachers: Tho
value of tho training wo have receiv
ed while at school will soon bo tried
by the severe test of the world. If
we had gained nothing more than
book learning during our course, ac
quiring knowledge, which could not
be put to the practical test, our
time indeed, would not have been
well spent. But guided by you dear
teachers, who have taught us not
alone the knowledge of books, but of
life itself, wo pass into tho great
world of realities. From you it is we
have gained our highest ideals, our
noblest aspirations; our gratitude
and respect will be yours forev r.
Wp have formed friendships which
will never be forgotten as long as
life endures. Now, in behalf of the
lass of li'l, 1 bid you a "fond
Fellow Classmates: The saddest
and most difficult part of my task is
now at hand. Tonight as wo go our
several ways, one chapter In our
lives will be closed forever. Placed
before you in letters of red and gold
is tho class motto, "a posse ad esse,'
translated, meaning "From Possi
bility to Reality." This is the motto
by which our footsteps havo been
guided the past yoar. We are about
to leave the possibilities of school
life, and tho future replete with
Loth possibilities and realities lies
before us. What it has in store for
us we cannot tell but what ever suc
cess wo may attain we should never
forget tho debt wc owe our dear
"Alma Mater." For after all the
c losing of this chapter of our lives,
-ans only the opening of a still
more interesting and striking one.
Let us cherish the friendships wo
have made aero and bo true to them
always. And lot us never forget
that the same principals and virtues
whi.h guided us heretofore will like
wise servo us faithfully in all new
undertakings. 'Now, with a heart
overflowing with both Joy and sor
row Joy I say at our success and
sorrow at our parting I hid you

THE HOUSE-ELY AS A CARRIER
What a little girl in a Topeka
school writes about a fly.
1 am a lly. I'm not very old and
am juht learning whero to lind tho
best things to eat. My favorite
places aro in tho spittoon in tho
sitting room and tho uncovered gar
bage can on the back porch. Of
course some flics would be bothered
about having to go out of doors to
get to that can. Rut it doesn't
worry me. In the house where I
live there aren't any scroens, so 1
can lly from the garbage can to tho
spittoon in perfect safety. I often
stop on the way, though, to get in
the sugar bowl or crawl over any
eatables that are handy.
There's a baby in this houso who
annoys me very much. Every timo
I leave the spittoon and crawl into
that baby's mouth it cries and spits
mo out. Of course I leavo a few
tuberculosis germs In Its mouth, but
it doesn't seem like that would hurt
It seems to me like people don't
know what is good to eat. iAt least
the people in this houso don't. Why,
they throw away all tho good things.
They put them in tho garbage pall.
I am endeavoring to show thorn what
good things are, however, for I get
my feet all sticky In the garbage
can, and then go and wipe them on
the bread. About a hundred of my
companions are doing tho samo
thing. I really bellevo that tho peo
ple are beginning to like It, for they
never trouble us any more. Wo wipe
our feet on tho bread in peace and
I heard tho woman across tho way
say that she believed Hies had some
thing to do with the man in this
houso having consumption. 1 won
der If he got it from the bread.
Tho woman across the way is los
ing all her Hies. They're all coming
over to our house. Sho won't give
thorn anything to eat. Sho covers
up her garbage pail, has tight screens
on all her doors and Is a terror to
files In general. Her children aro
such happy, hearty youngsters, while
tho children in this houso aro always
cross. They never get any afternoon
nap. The Hies won't let thorn.
There's a very great deal of ill
ness in this house. Two of tho hoys
have malaria and tho father is nevor
well. I heard the mother say to tho
woman across tho way, "I really do
not know what to do for all this
sickness. It drives mo distracted."
What do you think that woman said?
Why, "Swat tho lly," of course. At
which I ducked. Oh yos! Tho baby
has tho typhoid.

THE HAY IIHIT.

The Rural 'Now Yorker gives tho
list of hny-growlng states as follows.
"Ueglnnlng at tho seaboard and
going West, tho chief hay-producing
states nro: Now York, Pennsylvania,
Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana,
Illinois, 'Wisconsin, Iowa and Kan
sas. New York alone, on over 5,
000,000 acres, produces upward of
G, 000, 000 tons annually. Tho ton
states above montlonod constitute tho
hay belt of tho United States," says
J. Vlnlng Taylor, secretary of tho
Nntlonnll Hay Association, who Is
arousing a wide-spread Interest In
tho Important crop. Ho further
says: "On a total of over 27,000,000
acres, over 40,000,000 tons of hay
were grown last year. Theso ilgures
aro equal to 07 per cent, of tho crop
of tho United States. Hay dealers

Insurance Afjeiits Must Hnvo LI
censes. Stato Insurance Commissioner
Charles Johnson has declined to re
cede from his ruling that all agents
of an insurance company doing busi
ness In this State as well as the ilrm
employing agents, must have State
licenses. Tho commissioner takes
tho position that tho Insurance acts
of 1911 require this supervision, and
that he cannot help it if it does cost
the Insurance people moro money.
Tho commissioner has been en
forcing tho law pretty strictly, and
complaint has been mado that it is
causing reciprocal complications, but
tho Stato olliclal says that Is not
within his province. Tho depart
ment has been moving against a
number of agencies In tho eastern
part of tho Stato undor tho new
acts. In some cases It Is found that
they are not well understood, but In
orders changes in methods have been
required. Results of a beneficial
character aro being obtained In
many parts of the Stato by the oper
ation of the Tener Insurance code.
WATCHING THE UIA)CK.
Don't Do It, anil Time Will Pass As
A New Haven paper, in an obit
uary notice of a respected and suc
cessful citizen of that city, tells that,
in his earlier and struggling days,
"he worked without watching the
clock." Such men aro of sterling
sort. They found families and build
up and keep strong cities, states
and nations. 'Whether one works
without watching tho clock just be
cause he takes real interest in his
work makes some difference, prob
ably, in the long run.
The Industrial and ambitious job
holder Is apt to 'be thrifty and to
save his money; whereas tho man
who works because his work inter
ests him Is not so likely to become
rich, but ho will probably get moro
satisfaction out of life, and that
counts for much to one who has
taken off tho harness and can give
his time to reminiscences. More
over, those who work without watch
ing tho clock And that tho hours of
toil pass as on wings, while to tho
clock-watcher time appears to have
the feet of lead. Judge.

A simplification of tho fish laws of
Pennsylvania so that thoy can be

SUIT FOR $(I,1UU,00().
Drought Apilnst L. F. Jjorce and
General Miller Over a Railroad
(New York Sun.)
Leoner F. Loreo, president of the
Delaware & Hudson Railroad, and
Cien. Charles Miller of Franklin, Pa.,
aro directed to testify before trial in
a suit brought by the Occidental
Construction Company to recover
?0, 100, 000, under an order signed
Saturday by Supreme Court Justice
Gerard. Tho defendants will bo
questioned as to negotiations wltli
ex-President Diaz of Mexco and mem
bers of his Cabinet for a railroad
subsidy which went to tho Southern
Pacific after tho late E. H. Harrinian
took a hand in the negotiations.
Tho order was obtained by the
plaintiff through Lewis Warfleld,
who organized tho company to build
a railroad in Mexico. Warlleld says
in an allidavit that he turned the
control of the company over to Gen.
Miller on the latter's promise that
If Warfleld would continue his nego
tiations wth the Mexcan Government
the company would pay him ?1,
000,000 out of Its first profits.
Warfleld alleges that he went to
Mexico in 1901 and as a result of
negotiations with President Diaz
and his associates the Mexican Gov
ernment agreed to give tho con
struction company a franchise for
tho road and a subsidy of $8,000,
000 in Mexican money. Loreo, who
controlled the company with Gen.
Miller, was elected president of the
Baltimore and Ohio in that yoar.
Speyer & Co., tho bankers, had fi
nancial control of tho latter road
and had just sold to tho Harrinian
syndicate the Huntington stock In
tho Southern Pacific.
The affidavit alleged that Loreo
acted as spokesman In several Inter
views with President Diaz on tho
subject of having the subsidy In
creased and Diaz said that "Mr.
Harrison" of the Southern Pacific
had come down just beforo and ask
ed for tho samo concession, but It
was refused because negotiations
with tho Occidental Construction
company wero under way. Tho Gov
ernment then made an offer of ?12,
000,000 In Mexican money and Sec
retary of Finance LImantour asked
that tho negotiations bo held in
abeyance several years becauso tho
Government was studying tho schomo
to put its currency on a gold basis
and It would bo further embarrass
ed If it granted the Bubsldy, becauso
it was about to get a loan of $20,
000.000 from Speyer & Co.
'Warfleld alleges that Loreo and
Harrlman subsequently had a con
ference at which Harrinian asked
Loreo to agreo to a schomo by which
Harrlman could get an interest in
the concession with tho result that
tho concession was finally granted
by tho Government to a representa
tive of tho Southern Pacific Instead
of to tho plaintiff. Tho company
sued Loreo and Miller for $0,000,
000, the amount of tho subsidy In
Amorican money and $100,000
which tho company spont in connec
tlon with tho negotiations.
