HENRY UTEGG STRUCK BY

.Accident Occurred on llnllroml
Crossing Near Conl Onicc Wctl
nosdny Narrowly Escnics
Henry Utegg, who lives on tho
.Mast Hope road, narrowly escaped
with his life on tho unguarded and
sateless railroad crossing leading
from tho weigh scales to the coal
.yard of the Delaware and Hudson I
company. Mr. Utegg was In tho coal
.yard awaiting a chance to cros3 the
tracks. He told a Citizen represen
itatlve that men were motioning and
he thought they meant for him to
pass over the crossing. Instead
signals were given by railroad men
for the engine, which was doing
some switching, to proceed. Mr.
Utegg started his team and when
jiart way over the track the engine
struck the rear wheel of the wagon
which contained a ton of chestnut
coal. It was an exciting moment,
tho engine locking tho wheel and
pushed the wagon, teamster and
horses on the track for a few feet.
Tho locomotive, 'however, was soon
brought to a standstill, thus saving
Mr. Utegg's life and also the lives
of his fino team of horses. Mr.
Utegg was not injured nor was his
This is a very dangerous crossing
and should be guarded by gates or a
watchman. The teams and drivers
that pass over this crossing daily
are now given no protection unless
some one might bo In the immediate
vicinity to warn them. The
Citizen has repeatedly called atten
tion editorially to this dangerous
crossing. Surely it would seem to
be less expensive to place a watch
man at this crossing than to pay a
damage suit for someone who might
bo killed, owing to carelessness up
on tho part of the company in not
having it properly guarded.

HISTORY OF LAUREL LAKE IS
Dates Hack Over n Century Was
Given to Colonel Doughty For
Services In War or 1812.
Tho recent ealo of the Laurel
Lake property In Damascus recalls
to mind many Interesting historical
reminiscences connected with the
place. The dato of tho ownership
of this well-known place dates back
nearly a century, when Colonel
Doughty, of Washington, D. C,
grandfather of Mrs. Anna M. Eldred
of this place, sent his son, William
Doughty, from Louisiana to Da
mascus to care for the property,
which was given to him, Colonel
Dougherty, as a reward of honor for
services .performed while in the war
of 1812. The property, which com
prised between two and three thous
and acres of timber land, was given
Col. Doughty by tho government
The senior Doughty was naval
architect in Washington, D. C, and
learning that property in Damascus
was being sold at remarkably lov?
prices, he sent his son, William,
Mrs. Eldred's father, from the south,
whero he was getting out live oak
used for shipbuilding to Damascus.
Two slaves, George and Ned Green,
and "Mammy" Green, mother of the
boys, were also sent to Damascus by
The property covered territory ex
tending form Calkins to Galilee and
was considered some of the best land
in the county. Laurel Lako was also
Included in the tract. William
Dougherty, w-ho was an industrious
iman, started to clear the property,
which was then a wilderness. A
saw mill, planning mill, stick factory
and wood turning factory were erect-
ed and for several years gave cm
ployment to several heads of fami
lies. After three years' stay Wil
liam Doughty returned to Louis
iana, coming back shortly after
wards. Ho married Fidelia Scud-
der In Louisiana bofore coming to
Damascus to imake this place his
home. Ho remained on tho place
during tho Civil War, keeping the
slaves which had been given him and
when the war ended he did not re
turn, because his property and tim
ber land in Louisiana was destroyed
Tho slaves were freed but they did
not leave William Doughty or his
family until they sold tho place to
John Cassldy for several thousand
Mr. Doughty Improved tho proper

the time ho first occupied the place
ho built a homo patterned after
Southern houses. The farm has
since changed hands many times and

PROTEST AGAINST RACE SUICIDE
One Thousand Babies, Accompanied by
Mothers, Blessed In Cathedral.
Pittsburgh, Dec. 12. A mighty pro
test against race suicide was voiced nt
St. Paul's cathedral when 1,000 babies,
accompanied by their mothers, were
taken before tho priests to bo blessed.
Tho children ranged in age from a few
weeks to three years.
Tho object of the ceremonies was not
only to bless tho children, but to create
n greater interest In the parents for the
cure of the souls of tbo littlo ones. The
prime object of the ceromony as given
out by tho officiating priests was to call
the attention of parents to their Bolemn
duty of bringing children Into the
world and rearing them In tho right
wny. Tho ceremonies were designed to
emphasize to mothers their duty to God
and to themselves.
"It is an expression of tho glory of
motherhood," said Rev. Father Browu,
"to seo till those mothers here with
their children. Christ said, 'Suffer lit
tle children to como unto me, for of
such Is tho kingdom of heaven.' He
did not say that to defeat tho laws of
inituro was to be tolerated. Ituco sui
cide is a sin and heinous crime, and
all parents should shun such action as
they would a pestilence.
"Race sulcldo has already nearly
rained one great country and eventual
ly will depopulato It unless radical
measures aro taken to combat tho great
eat evil known In modern times. The
crowning glory of woman should be to
bear children, as Christ Intended should
he their portion."

an intimate way of their labors and

were dressed in buckskins. Mr.
Jenkins has as a souvenir the big

about the neck by every member and
Tho speakers illustrated their re
marks with pictures shown on a
screen In tho banquet room. This is
a usual custom. A note-worthy ex
ample was that whero Perry gave in
this way his first description of his
trip to tho Pole a few years ago.
At this dinner Alanson Skinner
showed pictures and described his
experiences among several tribes of
Indians. In 1910 he was admitted
to tho "Society of Dreamers," a
religious and ceremonial organiza
tion of the Menomlnl Indians, and a
year later took part in their four

great unexplored region were of in

1900-7 he lived with the Eskimos for
purposes of study, at the mouth of
tho Mackenzie River. In the fall of
1907 he crossed from the Mackenzie
delta to the headquarters of the Por

a resident of Lehigh township
Wayno county, died Tuesday after
noon at 1 o clock at his homo follow
ing a fall down a flight of stairs on
Sunday, which resulted in a fracture
of tho skull.
It was first thought that MacKeal

found at tho foot of tho stairs.
Dr. Kerllng was summoned and

Attorney M. E. Simons over long dls
tanco telephone on Wednesday, ho

cumstances whatovor connected with
Mr. MacKeal's death. Ho also stated
to tho district attorney that thero was
no evidenco of strugglo and that Mr
MacKeal died without regaining

KEEP THE DOLLAR HOME.
Scranton Is pushing ahead fo
more business and new Industries. A
poem appeared In Wednesday'
Trlbuno-Ropublicnn undor a Board
of Trade headed article, entitled, "A
Dollar Dream," tho writer's principal
thought being to keep tho dollar at
home. Now on the other hand, the
merchants and Board of Trado of
that thrifty city aro not satisfied with
their own dollar, but they want other
town's dollars and Industries, too.
Committees representing tho Electric
City's Board of Trado have mado re
peated visits to Honcsdalo endeavor
ing to get one of this town's promis
ing Industries to locate in Scranton.
Quoting a couplet from tho last
stanza of tbo poem, written by
Douglas Malloch, tho same can be
applied to Honcsdalo as woll as to
Scranton. It reads:
"He found a dollar does its work
The best right hei'e at homo."

Under tho direction or Mr. Frank
Daniel, A. A. G. O., organist and
choir master of St. Peter's Cathe
dral, Scranton, assisted by members
of tho Cathedral choir, whoso
names appear below, a delightfully
artistic concert was given on Tues
day evening, complimentary to tho
people of Honesdale by the Rev.
John O'Toole, in St. John's beauti
ful edifice. This occasion also most
appropriately, tho' Incidentally,
marked tho birthday of the kind and
gracious host, Father O'Toole,
whoso Honesdale friends and well
wishers are limited only by tho
number of inhabitants in the town,
irrespective of denomination, na
tionality, caste or age; although he
has been among us but a short time.
So it is needless to say that the
seating capacity of tho church was
packed to the utmost on this oc
It was gratifying to observe that
this large audience followed the
performance with interest, and evi
dently was Impressed by it. Al
though each number on the pro
gram was an exacting one. The
members of the cathedral choir who
assisted Mr. Daniel in the following
program were, Mr. Oscar Hudson,
Tenor; Mr. John J. O'Hara, Baritone
Mr. William R. Bradbury. Bass:
Masters Edward Gillard and Anth
ony FInnerty, Boys Sopranos.
Tho following program was car

Organ Solo: Grand Offertory In D
(St. Cecilia) Batiste
Messrs. Hudson, O'Hara and
Bradbury sang with true Intona
tion, attack, phrasing and Intelli
gence, and were well received.
Tho trio by Verdi gave especial
pleasure perhaps, because familiar
to many in the audience. The Boys
Sopranos were an innovation to tho
usual concert program and a de
lightful one. Under Mr. Daniel's
skilled leadership, Masters Gillard
and FInnerty sang gems from the
Masters with tho Intelligence and
vocal art of veterans in the work.
Master Flnnerty's voice especially
being so true, so fresh and flower
Hke that it charmed all hearers.
Mr. Daniel's solos were given with a
fine command of his Instrument.
His orchestration, touch, pedalling,
and interpretation, (especially
noticeable In Batiste's Grand Offer
tory In D) and his command of tho
singers under his care mark him a
worthy musician, whom me hope to
hear in Honesdale again.
