Congressman Grow attended school
at Honesdale.
No, You Couldn't Miss
Tho Watts Advertisement.
The advertisement of the Detroit-
er automobile that G. Watts & Son
have In another part of today Citi
zen, Is worth reading by everybody
interested in tho subject of carriages
that travel without tho aid of horses.
Stars, Vets, Comers, Comebacks, and After you read the advertisement
you will surely want to see the car
Itself, and that you can easily do by
calling at the Watts garage.
Hurrah! Hurrah! Summer
lA'Y the time never come when
the sound of the woodman's
axe or cross-cut saw will
be heard In the removal of
tho beautiful pine grove
that adorns the southern boundary of
the borough of Hawley. That grove
Is one of the most priceless posses
sions of the town. Instead of allow
ing any of the trees to be removed,
extra effort should be put forth to see
that they are protected and kept
from disease. That grove of pine
trees does infinitely more than adorn
the village, for It is a source of
health. It could be removed in a
few days by workmen, but it could
not be replaced In generations.
When Southern Pines was started in
North Carolina In 1884, one of the
wise provisions was that no pine tree
was to be cut, unless absolutely
necessary. Long, long ago tho wis
dom of this action has been dem
onstrated over and over again.
What the writer hereof Is saying
about pine trees ho says also about
the hemlock. Save every hemlock
tree possible, not only in Hawley, but
In every part of Wayne County.
Many farmers are awake to the im
portance of the hemlock tree as a
source of health and wealth, and sev
eral beautiful little parks of those
trees are becoming noticeable in this
part of Old Wayne especially no
ticeable may be mentioned a park on
tho southern end of Cajaw pond, and
one or two along tho Middle Creek
between Hawley and Hoadleys. In
writing on this subject previously the
following was perpetrated on inno
cent Wayne county readors:
Cut not the hemlock tree
Protect each drooping bough;
Twill holp you build your chickory
Some forty years from now.
Again let me say to Hawley peo
ple: Under no circumstances allow
vour Dine trees to be sacrificed.
When the town begins to grow, as it
shortly will, there will be a tempta
tion to make room for dwellings on
the southern hillside, and that will
mean tho removal of thq beautiful
nines. When that time comes, do
not yield to temptation, but save the
beautiful pines.
It Isn't Much Trouble ,
To Paint Somo Towns.
It is easier to paint In some towns
than it is in others, and, as good
brother Post, of Battle Creek, re
marks at tho bottom of all his litera
ture, "There is a reason." For in
stance, there is the case of somo
young men of Hawley, fine fellows,
too, who have a hankering to become
artists; and their favorite color is a
bright vermillion. When they begin
to swing their brushes in dead earn
est, officer Richardson just has busi
ness In some other part or town, or
goes to sleep, or does almost any
thing so that he won't make them
feel that they are being watched too
closely, for you see, Eddie was a boy
with them, they grew up together,
and he knows they are not at all vici
ous. Therefore, the painter's art for
them in Hawley, when they are prac
ticing at it, runs along as smoothly
as a verse of Homer Greene's famous
poem, "What-My Lover Said."
But unfortunately for tho boys,
Honesdale officers are not like Rich
ardson. They can't appreciate art.
Thev don't like red nalnt. Wow!
Wow!! It makes them mad all the
wav through lust to think red, to
Bay nothing of seeing the stuff, and
when our young friends from Haw
ley began to "brush in" tho red hue
on the Maple City's oxposed surface,
what did tho officers of the law do
but arrest them, and, "tho morning
after." they wero fined for their
trouble and pains. They are sure,
now, that Honesdale doesn't appro
clato art. Thus, what they for a
long time suspected has now become
a reality.

There has been repeated calls for
a baso ball meeting in town for the

far nothing has been started. If some

I just cited; so, fans, get busy.

they listened to a special sermon by
Rev. D. S. MncKellar. A short pro

The Lntc Solomon Jones
Conducted "The Traveller's Homo."
Few people in Hawley will recall
the fact that tho late Solomon Jones,
who died at Ariel the early part of
this week, was atone time a resident
of this town, mat was away duck hi
1875 and '7G. Mr. Jones lived In a
little cottage on the "level" between
Nos. 18 and 19, and, becoming tired
of the monotony of country life, he
bought out John Chamberlain, a
tavern keeper of those days who was
famous for tho good things to eat he
set before his guests, and whose hos
telry was in the building: now occu
nled as a residence by William
Schardt. Mr. Jones called his public
house "Tho Traveller's Home." That
was In "the good old days" when
there were real taverns In the land.
In these days instead of calling his
nubile house "The Traveller's Home"
it would, nave ueen canea noiei

cessor to Mr. Chamberlain and we
never 'heard that the fame of the
dinners of "The Traveller's Home
wero anv less than those served by
mine host Chamberlain; but, after a
year or two of life in Hawley ho re
turned to Ariel where he remained
almost uninterruptedly, we believe,
up to the time of his death.

The employees of tho Keystone

good, tho boys' thoughts turned to
base ball. Bill Rouse of tho second
floor picked out eight others, com

challenged Cubble Bea of the first
floor, who picked out his men com
posed of veterans and comers to play
fnr the rhnmnlonshln of the shop.
Each manager decided to pitch for
his respective side, and both did wen.
Rouse's team won by their superior
base running by tho score of 11 to S.
Murphy and Rouso starred for tho
second floor by their all around

the first floor by their heavy hitting.
