JLlves of Firemen Who Do Good
A disastrous lire occurred in White
Mills early Sunday morning which
totally destroyed the three-story
building on the main street of the
town occupied by Minor Brown and
family and owned by W. H. Ham.
Tho loss will reach about J12.000.
The first floor of the building Is used
by Mr. Brown as a store and the two
floors above are occupied by his fam
ily as living quarters.
About two o'clock Sunday morn
ing Mr. Brown was awakened by
smelling smoke In the room and af
ter an investigation ho found the
store room full of smoke and fire.
Going up stairs he awakened the
family and afterwards sent in the
alarm, but the fire naa gained such
headway that the family barely es'
caped suffocation and escaped only
in their night clothes.
The fire company responded
quickly but by that time they saw
the building was doomed and turn
ed their energies to saving the build
ings on either side, which were very
close. If there had been a strong
wind the whole row of residences
would have burned. The White
Mills fire department deserve great
praise for their heroic work at the
lire. Some of them really endan
gered their lives. Several chemical
appliances were used besides one
stream by the firemen.
Mr. Brown handled oil and pow
der and a little shed at the rear of
the main building was used for the
purpose of storing these combust!
ties. When the flames reached this
shed the explosions were frequent
although no one was hurt. One ex
plosion which occurred, tore the
whole front of tho store out, scat
tering the large crowd of spectators
which had gathered. Several bar
rels of kerosene oil and linseed oil
were dumped into the canal.
Mr. Ham's garage nearly caught
lire and it was with great difficulty
that his car was saved. The front
wheels were off and the car had to
be lifted out. Just as this was ac
complished the roof fell in.
The buildings on either side were
saved with difficulty, by the use of
wet blankets and water. All the fur
niture had to be taken out of these
The building collapsed about 4
o'clock but the firemen with streams
of water worked on until about 8
o'clock Sunday morning.
The Honesdale lire companies
kindly offered their services but the
fire was then considered under con
trol. The White Mills fire company
and the whole town were grateful
for this offer of assistance.
Everything in the building was de
stroyed and as the fire had gained
such headway, nothing could be sav
ed. The 'fire started up again in the
ruins about seven o'clock Sunday
night and it was necessary for the
firemen to again come to the rescue.
The flames this time did not last
The loss to the building Is covered
by insurance but Mr. Brown is a
heavy loser and his loss outside of
his insurance amounts to about $8,
000. He carried a stock of about
$10,v00. He also lost a valuable
hunting dog in the flames.

work he boarded with one of his fel
low workmen until last Thursday
when he suddenly left town, after
bidding his fellow workmen, friends
and landlord goodbye. He said he
had secured a better position in
Massachusetts. This young man, it
is alleged, had been very friendly
with the wife of his landlord but
nothing was thought of this at the
time. The peculiar part is that on
the day he left Honesdale tho wife
of the landlord also suddenly left
town, hut, it is said, on different
trains. The husband and sons
of this unhappy family have
our sincere sympathy as they are in
dustrious people and had made a
good home for tho mother. This
young man is many years the wom

family do not know where the wom
an went as she left no word. It is
reported that the young man has
been married and has a wife living.

The families of Rev. Seymour and
Mr. Wood are both under quarantine

be no danger of an epidemic.
The county health officers have all
the cases well in hand and although

medical inspector, Louis B. Neilsen,
says he does not think there is any
danger of an epidemic. About one
hundred persons including school
children have been vaccinated.

and how in many Instances with dif

different experiences of reporters
were told in an interesting manner.
Following this brief outline of the
work, Mr. Weyrauch completed the
newspaper talk by showing a num
ber of pictures illustrating a trip
through the Brooklyn Eagle's nine
story newspaper building. The slides
were exceptionally clear. They rep
resented the different departments,

The Eagle has a battery of 45 lino-

recently installed at a sum of $15,-

ed machines eight different styles of
type can be set. The saving of time
is one of the most important items
in a newspaper office. To overcome
this so as to make every second
count, devices of a modern nature
have been installed, one of which is
a triple thimble upon which is con-
tained three rolls of paper. Each
web weighs about eleven hundred
pounds. Instead of stopping the

when a new roll of paper is to be in

but not stopped, and when the web
is near the end a new roll is
pasted upon the exhausted web.
Mr. Weyrauch then told of Hones
dale's advantages. How the place
unequalled any other territory from
a picturesque, industrial, commercial
and residential standppint. -He paid
a very flattorin'g but not exaggerated
tribute to Honesdale. He referred
to Irving Cliff as being an ideal spot
for a summer resort. Mr. AVeyrauch
next introduced J. Maynard Morgan,
advertising expert of the Brooklyn
Eagle. Mr. Morgan opened his Inter-
esting boost address by asking his
audience the question "What do
vn thlnlr of TTnnnsrlnlfi?" TTfi RI,lrt
he was very much pleased with the
answers of several of Honesdale's cit
izens as regarding matters expressed
along this line during the day. His
talk was sound, convincing, to the
point and straight forward. Mr.
Morgan demonstrated to tho audi
ence what real advertising is and,
what it has done for several noted
articles which has come into pub
licity through persistent advertising.
His address was replete with a num
ber of good advertising tips. He
told of Honesdale's resources, of its
industries, what the Board of Trade
had done for the town, at the same
tlmo ho advised tho Board not to
lay back on their oars and drift, hut
pull with a long, full stroke with a
determination to accomplish bigger
things the coming year. In hia
analysis of Honesdale, Mr. Morgan
stated that he knew of no town in
the United States that had more var
ied industries or where better oppor
tunities were offered to obtain others
than right here in Honesdale. "You
have the climate, altitude, pure
spring water, scenery and numerous
other advantages that other towns
have not, said Mr. Morgan. "To at
tract people here you want to adver
tise, he equoted. "Tell the public
of the beautiful rock you have on
tho east of the town and other at
tractions. That's how you can
boost Honesdale." Mr. Morgan then
told of Liberty, N. Y how tho citi

the report that in Germany a cure
for tuberculosis has been discovered.
The author of this cure, Dr. Fried

thoritative statement as to its na
ture. It is generally believed to be
a serum resulting from experimenta
tion upon turtles. With this meagre
Information it is impossible for any
one to form a definite opinion about
this remedy. It may be the long

Dr. Koch discovered the tubercle
bacilli, the cure for consumption
has been announced. Even Dr, Koch

The more than five hundred per

Months Thought Company Will
At the regular meeting of the bor
ough council Thursday evening a
franchise was granted to the Wayne
County Railway Company, giving
them the privilege of using certain
streets of the borough for tho
laying of rails for the proposed line.
The franchise as passed by the coun
cil must now go to the burgess for
his approval or disapproval and after
that it will be submitted to the com
pany for their approval.
The prospects for a trolley line
from Honesdale to Hawley are now
bright indeed. It Is not known what
action the company will take in re
gard to the franchise as passed but
it is very probable that it will be ac
cepted without alteration. All that
will remain in that event for the
company to do is to get the charter
and begin operations.
Under the ordinance as passed by
the council the street railway com
pany is given the use of certain
streets of the borough for tho laying

company will be obliged to pave in
