TALKING FOR THE CITIZEN.
Know all men, and likewise all women and young folks In
general, that J. A. Collum, of Hawley, an old veteran of
the Civil War, has started out with his satchel of sample
copies of The Citizen, The Wayne Countean, the Tribune
Farmer, the Ladles' World and the big and elegant book of
"Home Songs" that ho Is offering iri combination the
wholo shooting match for only $3.00.
he tells you. Examine his samples
Hawley has been very quiet this
Week. From a news standpoint there
has been " nothing doing." In fact,
on Wednesday It was so balmy, so
warm and so Springlike that every
body just felt like doing nothing and
letting it go at that.
One of the marks of distinguish
ment of the town is the big stone
smoke-stack on Keystone street
right in the rear of " Dick " Mur
phy's glass-cutting shop. It seems
but yesterday since that stack was
built, but if one began measuring it
by years he would find that it was
built either forty or forty-one years
ago. John Amos, father of 'Erasmus
and Homer and the late Wm. Ames,
laid the stones of that chimney, and
looked as ho worked away up in the
" What are you building, John?"
was a common inquiry shouted from
the ground to the workman aloft.
The answer varied according to the
Ihumor of the builder. Mr. Ames was
apt to come back at tho questioner,
Yankee fashion, by asking them if
it didn't look like the Washington
monument. Nobody was told exact
ly what was contemplated until the
chimney was completed. Then the
Ames Brothers quickly built a grist
mill and began grinding grain.
The Ameses were always doing
funny little stunts like that.
As previously stated the tall stone
stack is a mark of dlstlnguishmcnt
for Hawley, and will continue to be
until the march of progress and im
provement shall hide it from sight, or
shall necessitate its removal.

Just where tho story started that
the Katz Brothers, of Honesdale, had

Washington, March 12. There la
.every' reason to think that a statement I
on the relations of the United States '
to Latin-America, written by President 1
Wilson and Issued by him after a
meeting of the Cabinet, has deep and
significant bearing on a concerted

It is understood that this Govern

ministration, Central America would
soon be in a turmoil that might in
volve the United States In serious dif
ficulties with foreign nations.
The matter was discussed at a- meet

by tho President and his official ad
