The State Educational Association which meets at Harrlsburg during holiday week, will have the strong est array of national educators that has over appeared before it. Among thoso who will take part are: Edward Howard Griggs, au'thor nnd lecturer, of New ork city, who will speak upon " Tho Inlluenco of the Parent and the Tcarher in Moral Education." Mr. Griggs' book on ' Moral Education" is conceded to bo the best summary in this import ant fiend of education. He is an at trai five and magnetic speaker, as well as a graceful and forceful writer Dr Reuben Post. Halleck, prob ably tho mostly widely known high school principal In tho country. For many years ho has been connected with the Boys' High school at Louisville, Ky., and has dealt with problems incident with high school education In a most practical and successful manner. Dr. Halleck Is also known as an author. Dr William A. McKeever, known throughout the length and breadth of the land by reason of tho bulletins which ho has published relating to the teaching of boys and girls. The Boston Herald says that his Home Training Bulletins, which deal with the practical side of life, have aroused a deeper interest in child training and homo building than any other Inlluence radiating from an Industrial Institution. Dr. Mc Keever has done -a great work In his own State, and he will have a mes sage of interest to every Pennsylva nian. Mrs Frank Do Garmo, head of the Country Life Department of the Na tional Congress of Mothers, has dem onstrated in a very brilliant way the connection between good roads and good schools. In her campaigns for good roads in Northern Louisiana and Southern Missouri, she has aroused the interest of the public to an appreciation of how good xoads can be made of great educa tional value. Superintendent J. H. Van Sickle, of Springfield, Mass,, stands out prominently as ono of the great na tional superintendents. He is a man of large vision, sane and sensible in his presentation of practical ed ucation. Henry S. Curtis, who will speak at ono session',, -was formerly' se.ere' tary of tho National Playground As sociation. He has probably had a wider experience In social center work than any other man in the country. His purpose will be to show how the home and the school .can be made to help each other. The indications are that there will bo an unusually large enrollment. It Is hoped that every county in the State will bo well represented. Pennsylvania has entered upon a new era In her educational history. The Educational Council, tho legis lative committee and the resolu tions committee will have interest ing and vigorous educational re ports to offer. Teachers are urged to plan their holiday vacation so as to attend the meeting. Every teacher who enrolls will re ceive a volume of Proceedings, which will bo a compendium of tho best up-to-date educatonal thought. This year's volume will contain addition al presentations which will be of in terest to every one concerned In ed ucational affairs. HONESDALE PEOPIiE ENTERTAIN BROOKLYNITES. We are In receipt of a program of an entertainment recently given in Brooklyn by A. J. Kchbeln, magi cian, a member of the Society of American Magicians and Helen Mur phy reader. In the first part of the program Miss Maude E. Rehbein, one of Honesdalo's talented musi cians, played two piano solos, en titled "Tarentello" and "Mountain Stream" both by Sidney Smith. Mr. Hehbein then interestingly enter tained his audience 20 minutes with paper. In part two of the pro gram, Miss rtehbein played two other selections from MacDowell. The first was entitled "To a Water Lilly" followed by "Tho Family Plate." Prof. Rehbein continued to mystify the audience with his magic tricks for some timo afterwards. TO TRANSFER ARMY OFFICERS. Washington. Orders for tho transfer of nearly 1,200 officers of the army have been prepared at the War Department. This inaugurates tho greatest shakeup ever known In the hlBtory of tho United States mil itary service, especially as all changes of posts of the officers con cerned must have been accomplished by December IB. The general shifting Is due to leg islation enacted at tho last session of Congress, A drastic provision was Inserted In tho army appropriation bill, requiring all officers who had not spent at least two years out of the" last six on duty ivlth troops tp bo with tbolr regiments not later than December 15. Eight Persons Shot for Deer. Eight persons were killed and twenty-four wounded In tho Adlron dacks during the deer hunting sea eon which closed last week. This is the largest number ot persons killed during the hunting season slnco 1907. ROBERTS SH UPPER. Frank Roberts and Miss Matilda Shupper, both of this place, were united In marriage on Sunday, Nov. 24, 1912, at 7 p. m, at the .Lutheran parsonage by Rev. C, C. Millar. IHOACII Ij.VKIO ODD FELLOWS BANQUET. , Entertained Friday Evening by Mr. I and .Mrs. W. W. Oliver Toast- master Was II. 1). Wood. The sixth. annual banquet of the Beachlnke Odd Fellows was held at tho beautiful homo of Mr. and Mrs. ! W. W. Oliver, who reside near Adams, on Friday evening last. Tho I evening was an ideal one and all I who were able to responded to the : invitation sent out by Mr. and Mrs. 1 Oliver. While the guests wcro I busily engaged at talking on the ! various topics of the day, tho ! younger members of the 'family were I preparing a dinner and arranging i other amusements with which to en i tortaln those who had assembled, j At 9:30 Miss Mabel and Master Carl Oliver, daughter and son of the host i and hostess, entered tho parlor each I with a bag of neckties, ono of which was passed to tho gonts, tho other 1 being passed to the ladles. After each lady found tho gent who had 1 drawn the tie made of the same ma i terial that she possessed, Master Carl invited the guests to tho dining room where they sat down to a palatable dinner which was served In courses. The waitresses, Misses Blanch Oliver and Jennie Van Wert did their part well and saw that all were well provided for. The display of National colors was grand. The emblem of tho order, which hung over the center ot the table, was very attractive, so was also the large card upon which was printed in large letters the words, Friendship, Love and Truth. Dinner over, Mr. Oliver arose and In his usual, pleas ing and entertaining manner, gave a short address of welcome, at the close of which ho announced that Brother II. D. Wood would act as toastmaster. Mr. Wood, who is al ways ready to do his part, took the floor and after making several ap propuato remarks, called on the other members and their wives. Nearly all responded with speeches and after dinner stories, after which all repaired to the parlor where Mr. and Mrs. Seymour favored them with vocal and instrumental music. At a late hour all departed for their several homes, declaring that Mr. and Mrs. Oliver were royal enter tainers. Among those present were Rev. Seymour and wife, W. C. Spry, H. F. Budd, T. H. Olver, A. Stearns, H. D. Wood, W. H. Marshall, and their wives, airs. W. H. Dunn and Charles Gibson. GUNNING ACCIDENTS. Now that the hunting season Is well on, reports from gunshot wound's are coming from all parts of Pennsylvania. There have been so many of such unfortunate mis haps to date that Prof. H. A. Sur face, State Economic Zoologist, has drafted a set of rules to be follow ed while seeking game. The Intim ation is conveyed that If they are observed, there will be a great de crease In hunting accidents, some of which are traceable as much to ignorance of the best methods to be followed as to carelessness. Prof. Surface's first rule is that a gun should always- be kept pointed away from yourself and others, his second that you should never sweep the horizon with It and always keep it pointed upward when carrying it. In getting over logs or fences, al ways see that the gun Is put over first and in a solid position. Then go to another place to climb over. Never under any circumstances pull or draw a gun toward you by the muzzle. Rules five and six read: 5. Do not load the gun until af ter leaving tho house, and draw the loads (or remove the caps, if a rauz zlo loader, and -watch that no per cussion is left on tho tube) as soon as leaving the hunting grounds. G. Never keep a loaded gun around the house or tent, and do not leave a loaded weapon where it may be knocked down by dogs or chil dren. Guns should not be carried cock ed except when on the alert for game. Never shoot Into moving bushes without being sure tho de sired game and that only Is there. The movement or noise may be caus ed by some person or domesticated stock. No mud, snow or other 'ma terial, should bo permitted to get into tho muzzle of tho gun. Fires In woods should bo watched care fully and extinguished before leav ing. No wounded game should bo loft to suffer and die from Injuries. Rules fourteen, fifteen, sixteen and seventeen read: 14. If going for game, go alone or with experienced hunters only, carry only what Is essential. Hunt with the back to tho sun, slowly and quietly, and In such places and at such tlmo of day as exporienco has taught that the particular kind of game Is to be found. 15. Do not hunt for "anything." This generally results in nothing. Different kinds of game aro to bo found In different places and at varying times of day, according to tho species sought. Decldo before starting out as to tho kind of game to be hunted and tho region to bo visited. HOARDING HOUSE I1URNEI) IN SHOIIOLA. Tho boarding house of Nicholas HeBS In Shohola township was re cently entirely destroyed by lire, due probably to a defective chimney, entailing a loss of about $5,000, upon which there was an lnsuranco of but J1.700. The fire occurrod in tho dny tlmo and of tho contents nothing to speak of was saved. Tho hbuso was of good size, capable of accommodating about 35 guests. To add to Mr. Hess" misfortune, last week one of his children was taken seriously ill -with diphtheria. Tho sympathy of tho community goes out to them in their misfortune and sore affliction. The First Thanksgiving Proclamation IT Is a mistake to suppose that the annual Thanksgiving proclama tion of tho president of the Unit ed States Is always written or dictated by the president. As u mat ter of fact nbout nil the president Iuih fo do with it is to sign his name to It.

He endeavors, year after year, to express practically the same sentiments in an entirely new way or at least without repeating verbatim anything that had been said In previ ous Thanksgiving proclamations. And, us may be readily understood, this tusk Is becoming more difficult with each successive annual call for a day of re joicing nnd thanksgiving.

DEER CHARGED HUNTER. As an opener for the deer season Btorles that of Frank Van Gorden, of the Beaver Run Club, in Porter township, Pike county, Is certainly a strenuous ono, and It is vouched for by a number of friends of the man as being tho truth, the wholo truth and nothing but the truth. It appears that ho was passing through tho woods with his gun on his shoulder, a day or two beforo the deer season opened, not looking for any particular kind of game, when ho heard a crashing of the un derbrush that to his trained ear dis closed tho approach of a deer. Van Gorden swung around and ho saw that It was not only a deer, but an Infuriated ono at that. With ears thrown back and hair bristling it was plain that something had happened to greatly disconcert tho pretty animal. Van Gordon was at loss what to do and stood still in his tracks as the deer camo on with tho evident Intention of attack ing him. About this timo Frank camo to tho conclusion It was about tlmo that ho did something nnd ho swung his gun to his shoulder awaiting developments. Ho foared to shoot recalling tho flOO flno for hunting deer out of season and at the saiuo time he did not enro to tako chances on being hooked by tho apparently unnddened animal. To tho surprise of Van Gorden, the animal turned asldo suddenly and was lost In tho bushes. Van Gorden declared after his experlenco that ho had mot many deer In his time, but he had never been cornered as on this occasion and then could not defend himself. Ho says be could have dropped the deer In Its tracks without trouble. UNIONDALE. Word has been received of tho promotion of Miss Kate Crandall to bo the assistant forelady In tho knitting mill at Waymart. Hor many friends aro pleased to learn of her success. Mr. and Mrs. Clarence D. Fort nam, of Tyler Hill, motored to Honeadale on Friday Jast. r 1 j- vvw: 9 ti:v:i:i ginning for a Thanksgiving message, so he changed It to "When we review the calamities which nflllct so many other nntions, tho present condition of , the United States offers much matter ' of consolation and satisfaction." Even this sentence was changed, re j written, corrected, revised, modified i and altered several times by various i members of the cabinet, to whom it . vs was submitted, but it was finally al lowed to stand, as shown In the ac companying reproduction of portions of tho original proclamation. The proclamation was issued on Jan. 1, 1705, nnd set apart the following Feb. 10 ns a day for thanksgiving nnd prayer. Any one who desires to see nil the Thanksgiving proclamations Issued by presidents of the United States will pihms iZemietwr wtlUi flnd them preserved In red leather vol umes in tho stato department. While George Washington originated the cus tom, many of his immediate succes sors did not follow his example, and it T?as not 'until Abraham Lincoln, bo-, came president that the annual Thanksgiving as a November holiday became a regular Institution In the United States.

Y.. broke quar antine at that place about November 19, and escaped across tho Delaware river into Scott township, Wayne county. Tho health authorities of Hancock used ovory means to locate the iman but failed. On Monday evening Dr. 11. B. Ely, county health officer, received a letter from Lewis G. Carpenter, an attorney of Han cock, saying that Brown had been reported to bo at tho home of a man named Smith, who resides near Maple Grove, Scott township. N. B.

Wo have been authentically In formed that tho belated street rail way in Honesdale, which was begun In 1905, will be built next spring. This is encouraging news and its confirmation will bo received with much Joy. The 'route to bo followed Is about the samo as that surveyed for the original Honesdale and Hawley trol ley road, which was later known as the Wayno Traction company. The franchise calls for an extension north of tho State bridge up Main street to tho Hartung bridge; also a spur down Eleventh street to Industrial Point. Two switches are called for, one In front of the Union depot and another in Tront of Lyric theatre. Outside of homo support, New York capitalists are interested. The proposition Is claimed to be one of the best over to be developed and out-of-town parties have expressed themselves as being highly elated over the possibilities that lie betweon Honesdale, and Hawley. The Incorporators petition the Governor of this Stato for an Intend ed charter to be known as the Wayne County Street Railway, to be operated between the points speci fied In the survey. The company will bo entirely new and In no way whatsoever will it bo connected with tho now underground street railway. A different stylo track will be used from the "T" rail now on Main street. Tho proposed road will also do a freight business In connection with the passenger trafilc. The trolley line will develop the agricultural interests of Wayne county and bring Honesdale and Its business interest In closer touch with the people living in tho rural districts of Wayne county. Tho road, in all probability will branch out to summer resorts with in a short distance from Honesdale and Hawley. Beach Lake, Lake Lo doro and the proposed lake from 'Wilsonville to Ledgedale are among the possibilities. Despite the raps and knocks forthcoming from other sources The Citizen has always supported and advocated a trolley road for Wayne county. It will be a business getter for Honesdale and should be boosted by the merchants, who will be the direct benefactors. A trolley road through Wayne county, touching the principal towns and resorts also passing through' the farming dis tricts wIlL be the remaking of dear old Wayne. The car barns will be located on Willow avenue. Just south of the Herman bridge. Work Is expected to commence January 1st next. The cars of the Wayne County Street Railway cannot run quick enough. Let us hope that we may all bo riding in trolley cars before many months. It has been stated) that the history of a trolley road Is summed up as follows: First year people rldo for the novelty and pleasure; second year a decided falling off of patronage; third year tho public will ride because of the necessity. BEST CONDITIONS FOR STORAGE There are no advantages to be de rived from picking fruit green. The ideal stage is when tho fruit is full grown, but somo days before It would begin to show signs of mel lowness. Otehr points to bo observ ed are the selection of late-matur ing, good-keeping varieties, and gathering the fruit in cool weather, or late in the day when, it can stand open all night to become chilled be foro going into tho cellar. A common practlco formerly was to pile the fruit in the shade In the open air or In a freely ventilated building before placing It in stor age, writes Ernest Walker in Farm and Home. This was for the purpose 01 allowing it to go through a so called "sweat." This process was tnougnt to improve color and ravor a slight shrinkage, also a toughening 01 mo sKin. it also allowed sped mens that were not In sound condi Hon or too ripe to develop signs of aecay. Tho pile was then sorted over one or more times, leaving only the sound fruit for storing. The latter result was no doubt of more real value than tho so-called "sweat," as wo know that diseased or scabby, or fruit showing mechanical Injuries will not keep well undor any condi tions. Cold arrests the activities of most of these organisms present, but ono of these fungi at least works oven at temperatures near the freez ing point. Tho location of tho collar on a Blopo or hillside to tho north, with openings up and down the hill, fa vors free and through ventilation during cool nights. By opening tho collar early in tho night in cold weather and closing tho doors be fore sunrise, tho cellar Is cooled and tho cold air is kept caged in. Under ordinary seasonal conditions tho cel lar so 'managed keeps fruit fairly well. Tho essential Idea Is In keep ing tho cool nlr In rather than keep ing out warm air or protection agaiimt freezing, and maintaining as equable a temperature as possible by careful attention to ventilation.

Krauss Hawley MAN DROWNED IN HANKIN'S POND Accident Occurred Saturday After noon While Fishing With Two Companions. Ono man was drowned as tho re sult of his overturning a boat on Hankin's Pond Into Saturday after noon In which were two companions. The two men swam ashore when tho boat was upset and saved their lives but Edward Martin was drown ed. The body was recovered Sun day afternoon at 5 o'clock. On Saturday afternoon Edward Martin and two other men took a small row boat and went out on Hankin's Pond to fish. Martin, ac cording to the story told by the two other men, had been drinking heavily nnd had a bottle of whiskey In the boat with him. About 5 o'clock that afternoon he became unmanageable and threatened ito upset the boat. The men did not think he was in earnest as to tho threat and let him alone. Martin gave a lurch to one side of the boat and it turned completely over, throwing tho three men and a dog into the pond. Martin sank at once and did not rise again. His com panions were able to swim and made for tho shore, which they were able to reach none the worse for their wetting. On Sunday morning J. E. Tiffany, justice of tho peace of Mt. Pleasant township, telegraphed to Coroner P. B. Petersen, at Honesdale, of the ac cident and Dr. Petersen at onco made the trip in his auto. When he arrived there he questioned the men and arrived at the conclusion that an inquest was unnecessary. He came back to Honesdale before tho body was recovered. Hankin's Pond, which Is located about half way between Mount Pleasant and Whites Valley, is own ed by the Delaware & Hudson Co. and Is used for a reservoir. The pond is equipped with gates and the water was let out. The body was recovered in this manner about 5 o'clock Sunday afternoon, after it had been in the water twenty--four hours. On account of the telephone lines being down In the vicinity of Mount Pleasant more particulars could not be had of the accident. THE CONSUMER'S MONEY. For every 100 cents which the consumer pays for food, only 35 to 50 reach the producer. About 15 cents for transportation charges and the Test are absorbed by profits and expenses of the various middlemen. A recent comprehensive Investiga tion in New Yoi;k showed that while no 'middleman makes an excessive profit, there are too many of them between the producer and consu,m er, says an expert In Farm and Home. Various plans have been tried to bring these two parties nearer to gether so that tho consumer can buy for less and tho producer eet more than at present. Public markets aro being conducted suc cessfully in many cities to the ad vantage of all parties concerned. They work better in cities of 15, 000 to 50,000 where distances are not too great for buyers to carry home their filled market Ibaskets. But in somo large cities, notably Washington, D. C, and Albany, N. Y., they have been successfully conducted for many years. The high cost of living has been the means of establishing many other markets in recent months. The need and success of these is ex plained by the experience of a worklngman's wife, who told mo how much moro sho could get for her money at the market than sho ever could at tho stores, and how the family could enjoy many little things that they could not afford at the old-time store price. Previous to tho development of tho fruit and truck interests and the establishment of a public mar ket In Oklahoma City that placo was dependent on outside states for her fruit and vegetable supply Now farmers bring in their wagons loaded with fruits, vegetables and other products, and sell out quickly to either retailors or consumers who como with baskets and bags and tako homo enough for several days' supply. Tho experience at Waterloo, Ia a city of 30,000 people, Is typical of many others. A farmers' market is maintained where farmers 'may offer their produce for salo at any price they can get. From 500 to 3000 people gather dally to buy theso products. They como with baskets aud buy from a few quarts to a half bushel at a time. Somo farmers drive 1C to 20 miles, but most of them not over seven or olght. Thero are 30 or 40 store keepers who aro kicking, but 30, 000 peoplo are happy, so the suc cess of tho plan can bo voted aa nearly unanimous. FORMER HAWLEY MINISTER WELL THOUGHT OF. Tho Lestershlre Record says con cerning Rev. B. P. Rlploy, former ly of Hawley: Tho Methodists of Lestershlro woro exceedingly fortunate In sec curing as their pastor, a man of the splendid ability of Mr. Rlploy. Ho Is a most excollent preacher, and to uso a somowhat worldly expression, ho is a good "nilxor." He knowa tho people, and has a good word for everyone that ho meets. He made good In Lestershlro from the very start, and peoplo In all walks of lire are coming to lovo and respect him. It may be somewhat of an etfort for Lestershlre to keep him, as it Is rumored that ho Is in great demand, and may bo called elsewhere. Les tershlre has every reason to feel proud of Mr. Ripley and the good work that ho has accomplished.
