f was called to consider whether the
epidemic In Carbondale would bo con
sidered in any way as interfering
with the Wayne county celebration
to be held here next week.
iDr W. T. 'McConvill and Dr. P. 13.
Peterson of tho Honesdale Board of
Health were present by invitation of
the council. Both gave It as their
opinion that no possible danger ex
isted, that tho disease in Carbon
dale was of so mild a nature that it
was not considered in any way dan
gerous. Dr. W. T. McConvill, sec
retary of the local Board of Health,
was Instructed by the Honesdale
council to get in communication
with Dr. Samuel G. Dixon of the
State Board of Health, Harrlsburg,
for his further opinion In the matter.
In a long distance telephone mes
sage Wednesday morning Dr. Mc
Convill told Dr. Dixon the situation
in 'Honesdale, how tho town was ex
pecting a large number of people
from towns and cities, Carbondale
being among the number, and how
the people were very anxious to
know whether there will be any Im
mediate danger here if people from
Carbondale should visit Honesdale.
In reply to Secretary MeConvM's
message, State Health Officer Dixon
told Dr. McConvill to go ahead with
tho celebration, that there will bo
no danger whatsoever. Dr. Dixon
also stated that a doctor of the State
department of health was located at
Carbondale and is now looking over
the situation with the purpose of in
vestigating how the epidemic started
and get other necessary data. He
also told Dr. McConvill that the
State Department of Health now has
j. charge of the situation in Carbon
dale an. that it will do everything
r- possible o prevent the spread of
the disease. He also said that there
is no immediate danger, that all the
parties who hav:contractedihe?dia:r
ease nave it in a mild form ana
that close quarantine will ho en
forced Everything will he done
that Is possible by tho state and all
precautions will be taken so that the
epidemic will not spread.
N. B. Spencer, general secretary
of the celebration executive commit
tee, appeared before the council and
asked for the privilege of the use of
the streets and other public places
during next week.
' A resolution was adopted by the
council giving the committee in
charge of the celebration a right to
use the streets and public grounds
for such purpose as may be deemed
necessary for the carrying out of the
program during the celebration.
1,000 MEN AT WORK ON
OUR WAYNE COUNTY SCENERY
State Taking Out Water liars and
Making Roads Enjoyable to
(Special to Tho Citizen.)
Harrlsburg, Aug. 22. Six thous
and men are at work on tho high
ways which the State of Pennsylva
nia has taken over for the establish
ment of the State road system, and
already the preliminary work on re
pair and maintenance of highways Is
beginning to show. Dirt is flying in
every county of the state, and roads
wheh were neglected are being put
Into condition for easy and safe trav
elling by wagons and automobiles. In
some districts transformations have
been mnde of roads which were no
torious for their condition and on
which little or no work had been
done for over a year because of ex
pectation that the Commonwealth
would take them over.
The work now unaer way Is but
the commencement of a State wide
system of maintenance and owing to
the vast amount of attention requir
ed is not what the State Highway de
partment will be able to do when the
$50,000,000 bond issue is voted for
the construction of roads. State offi
cials say that they are doing the best
possible with the appropriation at
hand and will welcome the co-operation
of farmers and property owners
through whose districts the State
highways extend. It is recognized
that If people passing over roads will
report to the county road superin
tendent places which require atten
tion everyone will be benefitted and
the state enabled to get the best re
sults. The question of issuing the bonds
for the road work will be acted upon
Anally at the next session of the leg
islature, and it. will be laid before the
people In the form of an amendment
to the constitution next year. The
amendment will, limit the road debt
to S50,000,,000,-kthe bonds to he is-
sued over a period of years so that
tho burden of interest and redemp
tion funds will be minimized, while
the plan of calling In some of the
bonds at the end of five or ten years
will enable tho state to be cutting
down Its debt and to pay off a consid
erable portion before the last lot of
bonds for road building is put out.
The maintenance work will be
what will count in the end, and this
year's operations are but a foretaste
of what will be done. Members of
the Pennsylvania Motor Federation
are lending their assistance in report
ing conditions of roads, and everyone
can help in that direction and at tho
same time work for local benefits
through urging the passage of the
bond issue which will give Pennsyl
vania a system of first-class highways
between county nnd market towns.

All of tho firms referred to make
definite statements that they test
their seeds for germination. Nino
firms advise purchasers to send
samples either to tho seed testing
laboratory of the U. S. Department
of Agriculture or to a State experi

firms state that they themselves fol

they offer and that tho seeds aro

firms allow a stated time for making
a test, advise purchasers to make
such test on receipt of seeds, and re
quest tho return of seeds which do
not satisfactorily meet tho test.
Five firms state that the seeds they
are selling comply with State laws,
and a number of firms give tho per

These statements Indicate that

Rev. William Booth, commander-in-chief
of tho Salvation Army, died
at his home in London Tuesday
evening, aged 83 years, after an Ill

general's recovery. Then, however,

time with the exception of occasion

The general recognized that his end
was near and often spoke of his
work as finished.
Throughout tho commander-in-chief's
Illness his son, Bramwell
Booth, chief of staff of the army,
and Mrs. Bramwell Booth gave their
unremitting attentions to him both
night nnd day.
The aged evangelist died at his
residence, the Rookstone, Hadley
wood, some eight miles from London,
where he had been confined to his
bed ever since the operation. Pres

Booth and their daughter and son,
Adjutant Catherine Booth and Ser
geant Bernard Booth, tho general's
youngest daughter, Commissioner
Mrs. Booth-Helberd, and Commis
sioner Howard, Colonel Kltchlng and
Dr. Wardlaw Milne.
(Public Interest now centers In the
question of a successor to the late
commander. Under the constitution
of the Salvation Army, the general
nominates his successor. That Gen
eral Booth did several years ago,
placing the name in a sealed envelope
which was deposited with tho Salva
tion Army's lawyers, with instruc
tions that it should not be opened
until after his death. While nobody
knows what name the envelope eu

Salvation Army is that it will prove
to be that of Bramwell Booth, who

his labors as an evangelist among

when it had become a largo organlza

gave in 187S the name of "The

soon became widely known, and grew
rapidly until It had at the beginning
of 1906, 7,210 posts, under the
charge of 16,000 officers and em
