Now that tho Gurnoy Eloctrlc Ele

dale Is completed and dedicated, it Is
no moro than proper to give this
large industry recognition, and as to
securing its location In our town give
honor to whom honor Is due. To
this end considerable credit Is duo
Honesdalo's banks and Board of
To secure this now Industry It
necessitated raising ?200,000.
Honesdalo's banks got together and
subscribed for an Issue of $170,000.
The- Board of Trade has pledged to
raise the balance of tho lsBue, $30,
000. That this large and successful es
tablishment found Honesdalo a fa
vorable place to locate their plant
is a fact which has afforded highest
gratification to the gentlemen who
have prominently identified them
selves with tho work of creating
Greater Honesdale. Honesdalo was
selected because the banks are liber
al, the railroad facilities meet the
most exacting requirements, labor
conditions are better here, the town
is not far from the source from
whenco raw materials aro derived,
and the markets where tho finished
product is sold; tho community as
such, In the character of its citizens
in general and working people in
particular, Is high class; the financial
situation here, and the spirit In
which tho banking business Is con
ducted, commend themselves to men
of large affairs.
Tho company desired to locate Its
plant in a place which offered great
inducements for the conduct of their
business, and also to become a part
of a progressive, broad guage com
munity, and they concluded that
Honesdale and its people filled tho
Tho site selected comprises about
five acres and Includes the extreme
south end of Slain street. This part
of tho town was donated to the Gur
noy company by the borough coun
cil, which made it possible to secure
the present site upon which the mag
nificent new factory is built.
This beautiful factory, which was
dedicated Wednesday evening In a
very appropriate manner, was built
by Day & Zimmerman, of Philadel
phia, under a subcontract let to the

THE IIOIIEMIAX GIRL.
Tho Aborn Opera Company in its
second season of ltninenso success
with its spectacular version of "Tho
Bohemian Girl" (in English) Is tho
attraction understood for presenta
tion at the Lyric on Friday, May 2.
This famous old opera has a perma
nent hold on public affection with
its prettily romantic and Interesting
ly told story and its tuneful music,
that has endeared itself to all mel
ody lovers. The story opens at
uount Arnneim s chateau In tho
mountains. Tho Count and his guests
are aoout to start on a cuase. On
their departure, Thaddeus, a pro
scribed noblo, appears pursued by a
troop of Austrian soldiers. Dovil
shoof and his tribe of gynsies aro
hovering about; and hearing Thad-
aeus express grief at his exile, pro
vail on him to Join their band. Ho
does, and later wins favor of the
Count, through rescuing tho latter'a
child, Arllno, from tho attack of a
stag. He is made a guest at tho
Count's feast, at which ho earns dis
favor of the Noble, by refusing to
drink to the health of tho Emporor.
Dovilshoof because of interfering is
made a prisoner, and when chance
offers he escapes, taking with him the
Count's child for revenge. With this
as the basis of the story, thoro is
evolved in tho ensuing acts as pretty
a romance as has ever been given to
an opera. Of the music, "Tho Heart
Bowed Down," "Fair Land of Po
land," "I Dreamt I Dwelt In Marble
Halls," "Then You'll Remember Me,"
etc., continue to charm as they have
for almost three quarters of a cen
tury. A metropolitan cast of grand
opera soloists include Helena Mor
rill, as "Arline," a rolo in which she
is delightfully fitted. Nolla Brown,
formerly of tho Tivoll Opera com
pany of San Francisco, will bo seen
as tho "Gypsy Queen," Stephen Stott
who was identified for a number of
years with tho Savago attraction,
will bo seen as "Florestein," Wllmot
C. Goodwin, as Count Arnheim, Det
mar H. Poppin as Devilshoof." All
these singers have been frequently
heard in their respective roles. A
special train has been arranged with
the Erie railroad to convey patrons
from Hawley, White Mills and East
CAUFIELD MARBLE AVORICS.
Traversing Main street in the 1000
Block one could easily pass the en
trance to the Caufleld establishment
without realizing the magnitude of
the business that goes on within. You
might hear the whirring, buzzing
sound of the machinery and detona
tions of escaping steam, but such
sounds aro common In Honesdalo's
Industrial center. Wayne county
people, in fact many Honesdalo peo
ple, do not realize that wo have
right hero In our midst an industry
that is something that any town
should bo proud of. Mr. Caufleld
has an extensive trade in other coun
ties in tho State, In fact ho designed
and built somo of tho finest memor
ials that are to be seen in Northeast
ern Pennsylvania. Mr. Caufleld be
gan the marble business in Hones
dale in 1877 and has from time to
time added new machinery and
erected new buildings as the business
advanced. A model brick office was
begun and was completed tho flrst of
the year which makes Mr. Caufleld's
establishment one of the best equip
ped and most up-to-date establish
ments of its kind in this part of tho
