Country-Wide Movement Among Re
ligious Organisations to Observo
That Sunday by Special
All creeds, religions and political
beliefs are Joining in tho movement
for the observance of Tuberculosis
Day on Sunday, October 27th. Let
ters commending tho movement have
been received- from some of the most
prominent leaders In thought in the
United States.
President Taft, former President
Roosevelt, and locally Archbishop
Prendergast, Mayor Blankenburg of
Philadelphia; the Interchurch Feder
ation which embraces all of the Pro
testant churches Interested in social
activities, Bishop Rhlnelander of the
Episcopal church, and many others
have endorsed the campaign against
tuberculosis and the plan of devot
ing' some part of' next Sunday to a
consideration of the .principles un
derlying the prevention and eradlca-
-tloiriot consumption.''
"I nope and believe that Tuber
culosis Day In the churches will be
productive of great good, says
President Taft in a letter to Homer
Folks, President of the National As
8oclation for the Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis.
Former President Roosevelt, who
is an Honorary Vice-President of the
National Association, gives out this
I am very glad indeed that ar
rangements are being mado to have
attention directed throughout the
United States on 'Tuberculosis Day,
October 27, to the immediate urgent
duty resting upon us all to do all we
can do to prevent this preventable
disease. It is particularly fitting
that clergymen, churches, and church
organizations should impress upon
their niem'bers and attendants the
duty of actively supporting in every
practical way their local agencies,
hospitals, dispensaries and tho like,
engaged in the suppression ol tuber
culosis. The amount of suffering,
misery, orphanage, bitter poverty,
and economic loss that would bo ob
ent knowledge as to tho causes and
prevention of tuberculosis is simply
Archbishop Prendergast of tho
Diocese of Philadelphia, in a letter
to the Pennsylvania Society for tho
I'revention or Tuberculosis, asid:
" 1 am pleased to know that you
are continuing the good work to
wards the prevention of Tuberculosis
and that you have set aside the 27th
of October as Tuberculosis Sunday.
I am sure that all our priests will bo
interested in your efforts and will
comply with any request you will
make of them in furthering this
worthy work in which you aro en
Wishing you every success, I re
Mayor Blankenbun?. of Phlladel
phla, endorsed the movement In tho
following words:
" I am glad to learn that tho Na
tional Society for the Study and Pre
vention or Tuberculosis has set aside
October 27th as a day for tho espec
ial consideration of tho means of
eliminating consumption. Tubercu
losis Is a social disease. Its greatest
aids are ignorance and poor living
conditions. It is to bo fought through
tho education of tho people. Tuber
culosis Day, as I understand it, has
this end In view and I therefore urgo
all tho citizens of Philadelphia to
co-operate through their churches
and other organizations in making
tlio observance of this day as wide
spread as possible."
Clergymen from every part of
Pennsylvania aro arranging to preach
on tho subject of tho Whito Plaguo
and will dlstrlbuto llteraturo among
their congregations. In this way
more than one hundred thousand
cards containing tho principles for

bo distributed. In addition, Inter
national Typographical Union No. 2
has Instructed all of its locals to as
sist tho branches of the National As
sociation for tho Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis in conducting
tho campaign for tho observance of
Tuberculosis Day. Tho various lo
cals In Pennsylvania are In commun
ication -with tho Pennsylvania Society
for the Prevention of Tuberculosis
and are arranging for services In the
churches In their respective cltios.

up the government evidence against
Mrs. Dolan, told Judge Witmer of
the woman's operations. He said
that he had collected between forty

Mrs. Dolan had sent out, and that
there were more than that number

Mr. Sharpsteen's Honesdale friends
congratulate him on his success in
this, his lirst case under his new
office and hope that it will continue.
Mrs. Dolan was arrested some

"Freckles" Will bo at tlio Lyric Next
An attraction whlc'h should cause
more than tho usual deslro to sco a
play, is Neil Twomby's dramatiza
tion of Geno Stratton-Porter's wide
ly read story "Freckles," which will
bo tho attraction at tho Lyric thea
tre next Tuesday, Oct. 29. When it
is considered that this fascinating
story of Indiana's great swamp
country, "Tho Llinberlost," has had
more than a million readers, thoro
lis no wonder that t'ho drama is
causing far more than tho ordinary
attention. Whero a book contains
tho vital requisites for dramatiza
tion, tho play Is always of more in
terest than tho story, becauso the
Imagination is not taxed and tho
characters aro living, breathing ones.
Those who havo read "Freckles,"
will understand the possibilities for
a drama of far moro than ordinary
strength in action, and environment.
There is unlimited scope for the
scone painter, the electrician and the
stage mechanic, and in these features
the production is said to be of sur
passing magnificence.

tho rebuilding of numerous high
ways is to bo undertaken on a sys
tematic basis, experiments isJmilar
to those now being made by tho
Pennsylvania State Highway depart
ment being now under way.
Pennsylvania has a road building
program for the first time, the Leg
islature of 1911 having enacted a
plan which had been demanded
for years by taxpayers, farmers, land
owners, economic students, mem
bers of the State Grange, automo
billsts and others. This program
was inaugurated through an ap
propriation of $3,000,000 for road
building purposes In 1911, but to
carry It out it Is proposed to amend
the constitution so as to permit is
suance of bonds for road construc
tion. If the next Legislature ap
proves of the amendment, the peo
ple will vote on the proposition next
year. The State Is now without
debt, because its sinking fund con
tains thousands of dollars above the
outstanding obligations, and as the
state has adptcd a road 'building
plan it will bo up to the people to
furnish the means to make it effec
tive. If the bond Issue should by any
mischance bo defeated good roads
in Pennsylvania would be set back
perhaps ten years. Tho constitution
prohibits the submission of the
same amendment oftener than once
in five years. Thus it would be
1917 or perhaps 1919 or even later
before the people if the $50,000,000
projects eo generally endorsed
should be rejected at tho polls. But
it is not believed to be at all prob
able that the bond issue will fall of

roads. Its defeat would make the
building of new highways dependent
on appropriations from current reve
nues with consequent reduction in
allowances for construction of
"State aid" highways, systematic re
pair of State roads, sign posts, bridge
work and township roads. By pro
vidlng funds for the main highways
from tho proceeds of the bond Issue
the Legislature will be enabled to be
more liberal in allowances to town

Mr. Benjamin and a party motored

He had experienced some motor
trouble on tho way over and as soon
as they arrived at tho Swingle home
ho raised the hood of the automo

As soon as it was raised a blaze
shot out, which is supposed to have
been caused by a leak in tho gaso

such headway that efforts to check
it were of no avail.
Nothing spoils an evening at home
so much as a drowsy feeling. Bad
air is perhaps more often the cause
of this then anything else. Three
persons can use up all tho good air
in an ordinary room within an hour.
So keep introducing pure air as
much as possible.
If an open window Is uncomfort
able, try sweeping tho room with
air every half hour, or even more
often. Open all tho doors and win
dows. Let tho outsldo air Hood

When tho atmosphoro seoms pure
again, shut tho windows and doors.
Tho room will heat up quickly, for
while tho bnd air has been swept
out, tho walls, ceilings and heavy ar
ticles of furniture havo retained
tholr warmth and thus it requires
little furnaco heat to make tho
room cosy onco more.
Ileapeat this operation as often
as you ilnd It necessary and your
evenings will "be less drowsy and
more healthy. Tho best thing about
this rule Is that it can be applied
in daytime as well as at night.

Tho business manager of a largo
manufacturing concern in Brooklyn,
with main offico In Philadelphia, had
occasion to go to Honesdalo recently,
and on his returning to Now York,
Sunday morning, could not make

Program of High Order.
The autumn meeting of the Arch
deaconry of Scranton was held Mon
day and Tuesday, Oct. 21Uand 22d,
in White Mills and Jndlan Orchard.
They were entertained by the people
of tho missions of Grace church,
Honesdale, in those places, except
for the Bishop and Dr. Jones of St.
Stephen's church, Wilkes-Barre,
who to take an early train Tuesday
morning, were the guests Monday
night of J. W. Lambert and the Rev.
A. L. Whlttaker respectively. Tho
entertainment of so many In Indian
Orchard and White Mills was made
possible only by the generously
granted use of automobiles all own
ed in Whito Mills. A supper was
served at Harry DeReamer's In
White Mills Monday evening by the
Episcopal Guild of that place for tho
guests who had arrived on tho 3.3S
Erie train or had been conveyed by
auto from the 3:15 D. & H. train at
Honesdale. This and the two meals
served in the basement of Christ
church, Indian Orchard the next day
by the Ladies' Guild of Christ church
were highly praised as among the
best ever served at Archdeaconry
meetings. The total number present
was over twenty. The most distant
places represented in the Dioceso
were South Bethlehem, Easton and
Pottsvllle. But a former member of
tho Archdeaconry, the Rev. W. H.
Decker of Empire in tho Panama
Canal Zone, on a vacation in the
country for a few weeks, was easily
able to claim tho longest distance
traveled. Tho others from outside
the Archdeaconry of Scranton were
the Rev. Howard Dlller of Potts

Easton, who were speakers, and tho
Row Francis M. Wetherill, who as
Warden of Leonard Hall, South Beth

The program, which rollows, was
of a high order of merit. Thero
wero largo congregations both at tho
Methodist church where the Mon
day evening sorvico was held, and at
Christ church on Tuesday evening,
tho church In both cases being com
fortably filled. The review of Bouck
White's "The Call of the Carpen
ter" was spirited and well done Tho
Rev. Mr. Decker gave an extremely
illuminating description of the me
chanical features of tho Panama
Canal project, of the Panamanians,
negroes and other people of tho zono
and of tho missionary work there.
Tho need for this latter will soon bo
very much less than at present, for
tho canal will bo finished and tho
laborers will havo gone back to tholr
homes in tho West Indies and else
whero. The greator part of tho mis
sionary work of tho Episcopal
church in the zono has been In pro
