PRIOHi 2 CENTS NOTHING LIKE OUR BEAUTIFUL WAYNE COUNTY Among Its Hills nnd Lukes Is Ideal Place ti Spend Your Vacation Clock That 11ns Record in Jack son Family, Damascus tOWIl slllp. Laurel Lake, July 22. To sit In a room and listen to tho gentle tick, tick of a clock that was made before matches were invented is a privilege rarely enjoyed. The writer, how ever, while on his vacation, has dally been In tho presenco of this grand old clock and listened atten- raitnrui PETER 11eit7.ek succumbs to burns. Passed Away in Scranton Hospital Tuesday Was Fatally Scalded In Accident to l!-lon Stcnm Shovel on Saturday. Peter Doltzcr, tho fireman of the big steam shovel who was terribly scalded by escaping steam when the big 20-ton shovel toppled over an embankment at tho Hawley Coal Co. washer. 2 miles above Hawley Sat urday at Wangum, died In Hahne mann hospital, Scranton, Tuesday morning, where he was taken after the accident. Deltzor was In the cab at tho time of tho accident and It was fully ten minutes before workmen could ex tlvely to Its story. This tlmepieie, standing about seven feet r trioate him from the wrecked steam high. 10' ated in tne living room oi i snovei. the hospitable homo of Mr. nnd Mrs.) Tho body was brought to tho homo W L. Jackson and Is about 140 i of his mother in Hawley on Tuesday years old. It Is encased in cherry i evening. wood, tho frame being carved and highly polished. The weights are large enough for an athletic dumb bell, weighing 14 pounds each. The Mr. Deltzer was about thirty years old and had lived In Hawley nil his life, where much sorrow Is expressed over his untimely end. He dial plate Is of hammered brass and was popular among his associates Is engraved with figures for hours, and possessed many admirable quail minutes and seconds. It is equipped ties and lino traits of character, with a calendar, telling tho day of the month together with many fan tastic devices. One of tho latter bears out the fact that It was made before matches woro Invented. Tho maker, who was Thomas Jackson, of Preston, Conn., great grandfather of William L. and Hon. Clark Jackson, had no means of telling the time dur ing the night so In making this clock he added a contrivance which would strike a bell at the pulling of a string attached to tho bedpost in his bedroom upstairs. If It were 12 25 o'clock at night and the in ventor of this now highly prized clock wanted to know the hour ho -would pull the string at the bedpost. The clock would strike 12 until the minute hand reached 12:30, then it would give the hour of 1 o'clock and strike that hour until 2 o'clock and then so on through the different hours of the night. This is consid ered as one of the curiosities of the old clock. It ticked away the life of Thomas Jackson, tho inventor and maker of this timepiece, and his grandson, John Jackson. For over a century and a quarter, amid the revolution of mankind, through wars and dis asters and excitements, It has kopt steadily at Its task. It hastens not; it rests not. It adopts no modern follies. It minds Its own business, does Its duty, helps all who need its help, tells the exact truth, and lives so virtuously that it never knows a sick day to present Its claim or to bang out any signals of being in the neighborhood. It has ticked away Beveral generations and is modest to say the least. "Mr. W. L. Jackson values this venerable member of his family beyond price. It really seoms a living presenco in the household. The offer of money for it would IdOk like sacrilege. A little historical sketch of Tool. Jackson, maker of this much ad' mired and Ingenious clock, would not be out of place here. He mi grated from England a few years be fore the Revolution in America, learning tho trade of clock-maker in merry England. He settled in tho northern part of Preston, Conn., soon afterwards, sotting up for himself, doing only what he could without having any help. Here he made the clock which we have been writing about. He cast the wheels and other movements that were made of brass, pounded the dial by hand, engraved it, made the casing, finished off tho clock and set it running. That was about 1775. When tho Revolutionary war broke out Mr. Jackson was the first to volunteer his services in tho defense of the new country of which he nad recently sworn allegiance to. He served as a soldier In the Con tinental army. His discharge from service Is still In tho possession of W L. Jackson and reads as follows: "Thomas Jackson, a soldier in tho First Regiment, having served the term of time for which he enlisted with reputa tion, is hereby discharged from the Army of tho United States of America." (Signed), "Col. J. Starr, Commander." ' Springfield, 4th Apr. 1780." "N B. Mr. Jackson Is to recv pay and rations until tho 12th Inst, and victuals to carry him homo. J. S."

Th Jackson homestead was a favorite stopping placo for herdsmen who drovo cattlo from Great Rend to Newburgh over that turnpike. Tho Jackson homestead, which Is located on a prominent point over looking beautiful Laurel Lake, Is now entertaining 14 summer board ers. It is a model homo whero com fort predominates. Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Jackson are proverbial for their hospitality, in this respect following tho precodent set by his parents, who wore noted for their kind-heartedness. Tho Tesldenco and all sur roundings glvo every evidonco of re fined plenty, being provided with everything which goes to mako homo delightful. Mr. Jackaon'a eon, Thomas F. Jackson, also lives on tho homestead. Ho takes groat pride in cultivating the farm of 190 acres, tbU year rais ing an exceptional largo hay crop. From flvo acres Mr. Jackson cut 12 hich won for him a large circle of friends. Ho was a member of tho Maonnerchor Society and that or ganization will attend the funeral services in a body.

Postmas ter General Hitchcock has issued a general order which has the avowed purpose of checking the use of tho gAViTal delivery windows for carry ing on flirtations nnd clandestine correspondence. Many complaints have been received by the postofilce department that service at the gen eral delivery window was being im properly used by minors, partlcu ed his appreciation for tho excellent work of tho music pupils under Miss Murran's Instruction. He said In part: " It gives me great pleasure to be present on this occasion. We mav bear witness to the efforts to attain education along musical lines. What greater joy Is there, to an old gray haired mother than to listen to her child playing hymns they used to play, or to a veteran father to hear the songs that tingled his early life blood with tho fury of battle. The Interest which the pupils show in their work Indicates a love for that work and consequently for their teacher under which conditions edu cation along musical lines becomes n pleasure and not an arduous task." He spoko of Mendohlson, Shuppert ana Last, wno nave given the human heart expression In music. He gave a quotation from Goethe In which the latter says In effect: "Every passion of the human soul has an expression in some form of music. The Dasslon of anger, love and hato, as well as peace and war have their expressions in music. TYPHOID AT niLLSIDE HOME.

Scurlo iV Salmon, Local Attorneys, Win Caso for Kelly U Stclnman In Scranton Judge Head's Opinion of Case Is Given Herewith. Tho case ot Herbeck vs. Kelly and Stclnman, which was argued in Scranton on March 13 last, having been appealed from the Common Pleas Court of this county, has Just been disposed of and wo herewith publish Judge Head s opinion or tno case. P. H. lion and c. a. uarrau wero attorneys for the appellant and Searle & Salmon for Kelley & Stclnman. brief statement ot tho record facts will make manifest that tho learned judge below neither exceeded his power nor abused his discretion n striking off the Judgment by de fault which tho plaintiff had caused imnrovidently to be entered. The action is assumpsit; tho summons is sued April 11, 1010, and was serv ed; the statement was not filed un til November 12, 1010. Passing by some Intermediate motions and or ders, not now important, It appears that on December 12, 1U10, the plaintiff was permitted to amend the statement previously filed and on the following day gave notice of tho amendment and that judgment would bo taken by default unless an affi davit of defense be filed within fif teen days. At the same time a rule on the defendants to plead was en tered. The next day, December 14, the defendants entered the plea of non-assumpsit. The case was thus put at Issue by the action of the plaintiff himself. Nevertheless, on December 21, tho defendant tiled an aflldavlt of defense. So the record stood until March C, 1011, when the plaintiff obtained leave to again amend his declaration, and the same day filed a new statement of claim. This of course set up no new cause of action. On March 27, 1011, the plaintiff filed a praecipe upon which the prothonotary entered Judgment by default for want of a plea and af fidavit of defense and liquidated the same at $1350.00. The defendants then obtained a rule to show cause why this judgment should not be stricken off. An answer was filed, and on May 10, 1911, an order was made striking off the judgment, and from this order the plaintiff appealed. "At the time the judgment by de fault was entered by the prothono tary there were standing upon the record both an aflldavlt of defense and a plea In bar. When the plain tiff saw fit to amend his declaration ho could not thereby compel the de fendants to again file another affi davit of defense. If the latter were of opinion that tho aflldavlt original ly filed exhibited a good defense to the plaintiffs action, there was nothing to prevent them standing upon It. If the plaintiff regarded it as Insufficient, he might move for judgment for want of a sufficient af fidavit of defense, just as he could havo done originally, or Just as If a second aflldavlt had been filed to the amended statement. The same la true of tho plea originally entered. The plea was responsive to the cause of action set forth in the declaration and put tho cause at Issue. The defendants wero not required to plead again each tlmo tho plaintiff saw fit to amend in some particular or other tho statement of his cause of action. It is clear then that tho record exhibited no case for the entry of a judgment by default by tho pro thonotary for want of an affidavit of defense or plea. Moreover, tho learned judge bolow. In his opinion filed, points out that when leave was given to the plaintiff, after the case was at Issue, to amend his declara tion, the defendants wero entitled to notice, and that tho record does not show any such notice or service. Thero can be no doubt of tho cor rectness of this statement in so far as the fact Is to be ascertained by the record. But without discussing tho effect of what the p'alntlff's counsel argue was notice at bar be causo leave to amend was given In open court, wo havo already suffi ciently shown that tho entry of Judg ment by default by tho prothonotary was an Improvident act. The learn ed judge below was therefore right in striking it off. Tho appeal was dismissed at the costs of the plaintiff but without prejudice, etc. Death of William Owens.
