Oh, merrily rang the music,
As folks marched up and down,
In the good old way
Oii Patrick's day,
In joyous llawlcy town.
kONDAY was St. Patrick's day
in "sweet Hawley under the
hills" just the same as it
was In Honesdale and
everywhere else in the
wide, wide world. Nearly everybody
you met wore a sprig o green, and
those who were not "a-wearln' of the
grqpn" wore a lonesome look Just as
If they had missed or forgotten some
thing. The main event in town was the
evening entertainment held in Odd
Fellows' hall by members of St. Phil
omona's choir and the Cadets of tem
perance. The entertainment was of
a social, musical and oratorical char
acter. All of the selections were
along lines pertinent to the day and
decidedly appropriate. The poetical,
romantic, historical, legendary and
musical sides of the land where
grows the shamrock all had their
proper place on the programme, and
the audience was well pleased with
what they saw and heard.
Time was when March 17 was tho
annual occasion for a street parade.
We never saw but one or two, yet we
heard about them in our boyhood
davs. We don't like to refer to such
things, but in those days there was
not. the understanding between na
tionalities and religious denomina
tions that hannlly exists to-day.
That was in the days when there
were two prominent classes in both
Honesdale and Hawley, one known
as "railroaders" and tho other as
"canalers." There never was any
love between these classes, and it
didn't take much of a remark, or a
verv larno "chin on tho shouldor" to
nrovoke a fight. Indeed, an inno
cent little remark like this: "St,
Patrick is just as good a man as
Fourth of July ever was," has been
known to "start things." Everybody
knows that It Is easier to "start
thincs" than it is to stop them after
they are started. Happy are we that
"Now wo know each other better
Since tho mists have rolled away.'
Tho last St. Patrick's day parade
that 'Hawley had was held several
years ago, and it is of such a memor
able character that a word or two
about it will not bo out of place here
and now. Hawley arranged for a
grand parade, and societies from
Honesdale and Port Jervls wore to
take Dart In the demonstration. Then
the unusual occurred In tho nature of
a whopping big snow storm. B. V.
Murray, who died three or four years
ago, was then In his prime, and hitch
ing four strong horses to a snow
plow he proceeded to break roads
through tho streets. Frank Curran
says he rode on the plow and that
the snow was nearly two feet deep.
Furthermore tho ride was a cold
one. The parade took place all right,
and the people had a good time; but
the custom of parading Is giving way
to celebrations along literary and
musical lines, and it is much pleas
anter to sing and orate about the
"dear little shamrock" in a well
heated and well lighted hall, than it
is to hunt after the beautiful little
bit of natural green beneath the
snow drifts.
The Firemen Getting Heady.
The annual ball of tho Hawley
Fire Department that will bo held
on Easter Monday night promises
to bo well attended. Tho boys are
doing everything in their power to
make It pleasant for those who at
tend. Cards and card tables will be
provided for those who dp. not "trip
the light fantastic toe."

Hawley's First Post Ofllcc.
The writer was told while making
his Tuesday trip about town that tho
first post-office that Hawley had was
located at the corner or wnat is now-
known as River street and Wangum
avenue. That must havo been when
the first trains on tho gravity rail
road camo clattering into town and
when the canal was a now proposi
tion. If anybody has an older post
office than that, just speak right out
about It, and we'll see that the state
ment has proper placo in these col
Camp-Firo Girls Havo Fine Time.
Hawlov has two camps of the
Camp-Fire Girls of America, an or
ganization lor giris in uieir tueuts
that is conducted along practical
lines that are parallel with the Boy
Scout movement. One camp is called
Wangum and tho other Paupack.

all Hawley Camp Fires. She has pre
pared an articlo for the April number
of The Wayne Countean that will tell
all about the movement, and it will

On Monday night the Wangum
Camp Fire Girls had a regular coun
cil fire. Tho Doctor's garage was
transformed into a miniature camp
for tho evening. They entertained
tho Paupack Camp Fire Girls, and

Nell being the candidate. Honor

for the first time, and the girls wore
their ceremonial dresses for the first
time. Wangum camp numbers nine
and Paupack camp numbers eight.
Mrs Pnnko arranced ten games, and
every girl had a prize. Tho prizes
were along tho lines of Indian lore
and St. Patrick's memory. Beads,
miniature canoes, shamrocks, etc.,
were tho souvenir prizes.
Tim carace was trimmed with
trees, and under tho trees were mini
ature camp-fires. Thero was a largo
council fire in tho grate at the end of

with rugs, and thero were no chairs
in the room. Tho girls sat on the
Tho movement is now and novel,
and is calculated to do much good.
The young girls of Hawley are for
tunate In having this delightful op
portunity of developing along useful
and highly moral lines. The Citizen
is delighted to do everything in us
power to aid Hawley girls, and all
other girls, in this new and eminent
ly practical line of education.

The Writer Admits Error.
Now we know! Now wo realize
how that cherry tree story; how that
"I cannot tell a lie, father," state
ment; how that "In the name of the
great Jehovah and the Continental
Congress" saying, may not have been
accurately reported and transcribed.
The writer thought ho know all about
that stone chimney of the Ames
Brothers In Hawley. He remembers
when it was built, although ho did
not witness tho building of It to' any
great extent. 'He does remember,
however, of riding on tho gravity
coal cars from Hoadloys to Hawley,
of seeing John Ames at work away
up in the air along side another
man; and, knowing tho reputation of
tho Ameses for doing things, he be
lieved that Mr. Ames was about all
thero was to It. Now, it transpires
that tho "other man" was tho real
thing, nfter all. M. J. Hanlan,
Honesdale's attorney, says that the
chimney was built from foundation
stones to tho very cap-stones
by his step-father, Francis II. Dil
lon, and that tho fine chlmnoy of
grey Wayno county stone has been
known ever since as "Dillon's Monu
ment." And now, In fairness, wo
must admit that wo could and did
make a mistake: and once more we
are reminded of the saying of a wise
and witty old aunt of ours, who put
it In this way: "Never boast that you
have found a duck's nest Just bo
