one trip is made per day, which is
quite expensive when other methods
of transportation are considered. On
Monday Mr. Connell, of Scranton,
representing the Alco Truck com
pany, made a demonstration which
proved to Mr. ReiHer that It is less
expensive and a 'great! time saver In
conveylngr-the producVbf the' factory

carried as much as four teams do.
There were three tons of charcoal
brought down at one time, when two
tons of hard coal were carried back.
The truck Is two-ton capacity. Mr.
Reifler claims that bo wants about a
3 ton truck and contemplates
buying one soon.
The acid factory Is running at
full capacity, there being from 50 to

Tho Citizen received a telephone

H Dorfllnger, Senator Walter Mc
Nichols and Judge A. T. Searle had
returned from a trip to Matteawan,

McLaughlin of Federal Health
Service Says Yearly Toll is 2u,-
Typhoid fever entails a loss on the
people of the United States of moro
than one hundred million dollars a
year. While American people are ap
palled at tho ravages of tho bubonic
demies in Russia, typhoid fever in
this country claims moro lives and
entails moro economic loss.
It is estimated by officials of the
public health service that 4,250,000
people of this country are attacked
by typhoid fever every year. This
disease causes at least 25,000 d each a
a year,
The pollution of streams from
which water supplies are drawn Is in
a large part responsible for the
spread of typhoid fever In the
United States. This Is the substance
of a statement made by Dr. Allen J
McLaughlin of the public health
Congress at tho last session
amended the law governing the pub
lic health service and broadening the
scope of that service so that it Is
now authorized to Investigate the
disease of man, their cause and mode
of diffusion, involving the supervis
ion of navigable waters, which are
under the jurisdiction of the Federal
Government, in order
to protect
thflu against pollution by sewage and
other contaminating conditions.
This is a step taken by the Con
gress In an effort to minimizes the
dangers from the contamination of
the water supply of the cities located
on navigable rivers, and the execu
tive department of the Government
has at the same time taken advant
age ot tho. water boundaries treaty to
secure from the Government of Can
ada an agreement to submit to the
international joint commission slml
lar questions for Investigation.
The international joint commission
and the public health service there
fore have joined hands in the fight to
be wagea against the typhoid germ
Discussing health conditions. Dr
McLaughlin called attention to the
fact that In northern Europe thirty
three principal cities with an aggro-
gate population of 31,500,000 had an
average typhoid death rate of C.5 In
100,000 in the years of 1909 and
1910, while fifty registration cities
in the United States with a combined
population of 20,000,000 had a ty
phold death rate of 25 in 100,000.
tV conservative estimate for the
year 1910," said Mr. McLaughlin
'will place the deaths from typhoid
lever above 25,000 in tho United
States. For the whole of the United
States tho number of cases for each
year preventable by means within
our grasp would total 10,500. In
1909 there were more cases of ty
phold fever in tho United States
tnan cases of nlaeuo in India, in
spite of the fact that India's popula
tion is two ana one-half times that
of tho United States.

Father Sullivan of Ilostou Finishes
Tho Weeks' Mission Where IMS!!
Communions Were Given.
Tho two weeks' Mission at St.
John's Roman Catholic church closed
with services on Sunday night last,
with a largo attendance. Tho llrst
week wnB for women, and tho aver
ago nightly attendance during tho
week was 4 00 persons. At tho
Women's Mission special solos were
rendered by Mrs. Dardls, of Brook
lyn; Mrs. Riley, of Wllliamsport, and
Miss Flnnerty of Honesdale.
The second week for the men was
also largely attended, tho nightly av
erago being 250 persons. Tho solo
ists during this week were Messrs.
Carl Monahan, Kalllghan, and others.
Mr. Carr accompanied the soloists on
the violin. Miss Havey presided at
tho organ.
During the two weeks Mission
23S3 communions were given to peo
ple of tho parish. Members of tho
church from Canaan, Waymart, Clin
ton, Cherry Rldgo and many other
places were present and received
communion. Many took communion
several times.
The Mission was held by Rev.
Father Christopher Sullivan, of
Boston, who is a member of the So
ciety of Jesus. He is a powerful and
impressive speaker and delivered
some of the strongest sermons ever
heard by the people of tho parish.
Last Sunday night at 7:30 closed
the mission service at this church
with 2S9 men and boys present. The
scene at the renewal of the baptismal
promises was an impressive one.
During this service the electric lights
of tho church were cut off and the
while each one was renewing the
baptismal promises, they held a light
ed candlo in their hand and while
Father Sullivan pronounced the
words of the service each collective
ly repeated the words after him.
Last Thursday afternoon at four
o'clock the children of tho parish
were blessed by the Mission Father.
These children ranged In ages from
babes in arms to a child of seven
years. Father Sullivan preached a
sermon to the mothers, taking 'for his
text, "Suffer the little children to
come unto Me, and forbid them not."
In summing up the two weeks
Mission, Father Sullivan told the
priests of St. John's church that he
was very much edified by the attend
ance and piety and earnestness of
all who made the Mission.
Ever since the fishing season operf
ed Wayne county anglers have been
laying for tho famous Bldwell black
bass, a lake leviathan that has gain
ed sea serpent fame In the wilds of
Wayne. Anglers on tho way home
from a day's fishing have met with
incredulous starts when they told
their friends of having seen the won
der. John Sheehan, stock broker in
tho Mears' building had hard work
convincing his friends that the bass
had made away with his steel rod,
line, sinker, bait and bobber ono day
last week. Lured by tho tales of
the Bldwell bass scores of fishermen
from this county went Into Wayne
to cast for the wonder but they all
came back with nothing but stories
of Its size.
Over at tho Nash hotel on Adams
aveme last Friday night, tho bjard
ers at the boarding boss' table, sat
In to a plentiful helping of fish. The
size of tho back bone caused a learn
ed discussion on piscatorial se'ences
and oets were mado that the fish
course was the flank of a young
whole. To decide the bets Harry
Madden, tho owner of tho hotel,
modestly owned up that ho had land
ed tho leviathan tho day beforo in
Bldwell's pond, and that It was none
other than tho famed Bldwell black
bass, stuffed and served baked. Mad
den says tho fish weighed seven
pounds and six ounces. Scranton

Ilonesdnlo Furnishes Its Slinrc E
,trn Trains Required to Care for
Cars Town Wants Two Freights
- The Delaware & Hudson Railroad
company did the largest freight busi
ness last month of any month In Its
history, according to a report from
the olllces of William J. Mullln, gen
oral traffic manager. September
business is keeping up to tho August
record and railroad officials expect It
to increase for the next six weeks or
two months.
The Honesdale branch of this road,
according to officials connected with
this road, claim that tho branch is
not paying tho company. That one
freight a day Is sufficient for the
town and that the service is as good
as the company can give.
Possibly it is as good as it can give
with only ono train each way, but
thfi huslnpsa men of Honesdale. ow-
Incr tn tliA mnnv snpplnl trains hplneiaro requested to bring
run over the Mooslc between the reg-
ular freltrht train hours, are nromDt-
ed to think differently. Invariably'
special trains, crews and engines of
tne ten hundred type, steam, snort,
whistle and make all manner of
noise on Sunday, breaking the quie
tude of the hour during church ser
vices. These engines take out any
where from 50 to 90 cars at a trip.
They are freight and coal cars and
represent the collection of cars of the
week. If Honesdale had two freight
trains a day over the Delaware &
Hudson road a certain number of
these cars could be taken care of each
day. This would do away with the
special trains which are now run dur
ing the week as well as on Sundays.
The extra crews, their time, fuel and
cost of operation, it is claimed, is
luivalent to another crew, -which
could run the second freight train,
which the town wants.
It has been said that if It were not
for the Delaware and Hudson sys
tem In this locality that Honesdale
would not have been In existence to
day. But on the other hand, If the
merchants and manufacturers had
not patronized tho Delaware and
Hudson road that company would not
have spent thousands of dollars up
on the Honesdale branch If the road
were not paying for tho benefit of
the freight and passenger end.

Miss MacDonald, announcement of
whoso coming to Honesdale was
mado In last Friday's Citizen, told a
Citizen reporter that tho newspapers
aro a public library's best friend and
that thero is no agency like a news
paper to bring a library's advantages
before tho reading public. A free
library, said Miss MacDonald, Is the
only democratic Institution in exist
ence. It will count moro for Hones
dale In an educational, religious and
civic way, outside of the church or
school, than any institution that we
have. The 1910 census reported
48 towns having a population of 3,
000 or over as having libraries and
IS of tho 48 towns were supported
by taxablcs.
In connection with the public li
brary of Honesdale, books from the
Pennsylvania Free Circulating Li
brary will be continued for an in
definite period.

It is a free circulating institution,
which is an incentive for everybody
to take books.
