For Thanksgiving matinee and
evening the local basket ball team
havo secured an attraction In the
Taylor team, which everyone should
see at least in one of tho games.
The Taylor team is ono of the best
amateur teams in the state very
few being better and the very fact
that tho locals havo proven them
selves their equals, or nearly so, by
playing them a tie game the first of
the season, is evidence that the
games will bo well worth seeing and
shows that the locals are deserving!
of good support. Tho Maple City
Five claim that they aro going to
win at least one of theso games, per
haps both. At any rate they will be
two fast and exciting games.
Tho summer was suddenly
brought to a closo during tho early
hours of Sunday morning, when the
thermometer dropped several degrees
and snow fell during tho morning,
tho tomperaturo hovering between 35
and 30 degrees. In the afternoon
It was colder and tho snowfall soon
averaged six inches on tho level In
Honesdale. In many other places In
tho county tho average fall of snow
was about 8 Inches. It continued to
fall all Sunday afternoon and Mon
day morning and about noon It
stopped. Telephone wires In many
parts of the county wero down and
communication to several sections
was entirely cut off until Tuesday
night. The storm is supposed to
have como from tho Great Lakes and
it came without any forecast 'from
tho weather bureau. Ono of the
unusual features of tho storm was
tho thunder storm which accom
panied It and to this .fact Is credited
tho cause of tho many telephone
dllllcultles through tho valley.
Tho killing of does is entirely
too general In the woods of tho
State this fall, say men connected
with tho Stato Gamo Commission
which is keeping an eyo on tho
hunting throughout Pennsylvania,
and It Is probable that hundords of
dollars of lines will havo to bo paid
and a sentiment for a closed season
on deor, which has been growing
in order that tho game may multi
ply, will bo stronger than over. Re
ports received at tho Capitol are to
tho effect that scores of does and
oven fawns havo been shot down by
hunters and allowed to lie In tho
woods. Tho law puts a penalty of
?100 on each doe or fawn killed and
hunters rarely mako any offort to
tako tho carcasses away. Tho game
wardens with tho assistance of Stato
police aro taking steps to traco hunt
ers who havo shot femulo deer and it
Is thought that some of them may be
brought to justice It is said, from
experience of wardens, that hunters
who havo shot tholr single buck,
which Is all tho law allows, aro to
blamo for the shooting of many docs
as tlioy cannot resist tho tomptatlon
to shoot again, although It Is rec
ognized that some of the killing Is
done through honest mistakes or by
inexperienced sportsmen, 1
