But now another copper story
Comes to the front and shakes Its
And fills Bone Ridgers full of glory,
And tempts your scribe to write a
We'll toucn the yarn with cautious
And watch for skeptics everywhere.
OW don't get excited, gentle
reader of Hawley, and
boost the price of your va
cant lots so that It will
make the stranger who may
want to buy a little real estate In the
town drop down dead with astonish
ment, when I tell you that copper has
been found right close to town. No,
tlie writer didn't find it. The only
copper ho has recently handled was
a big, round, old-fashioned copper
cent in perfect condition, the gift of
Honesdale's dean in the newspaper
profession, Edward A. Penniman.
It bears the date of 1853, and was
given as a birthday souvenir, and it
will be retained as a sort of Mascot.
What good is one big, red, copper
cent when you get reckless, anyway?
But about that copper discovery:
This is about the 'nth time copper
.mines have been located in Wayne
county. It is to be hoped that this
time the vein Is fully a mile wide, all
copper and thicker than a buckwheat
pancake that has been mixed with
too much buttermilk.
The discoverer of the new copper
mine is John Shannon, well known
In Honesdale. He had been pros
pecting in the vicinity of the dis
covery for several weeks, and now
claims that he is sure that indica
tions point to a valuable mine. He
took P. J. Keary, of Bono Ridge, to
see the mine, and Mr. Keary knows
its location and what the stuff looks
like., At the Eddy hotel where Mr.
Shannon boards one of the employees
'said that Mr. Shannon had brought
down two big hunks of the find for
inspection, and he said it was sure
The' copper mine is located in an
old stone quarry between Hawley
and Wllsonville, not far from Bono
Ridge. It is about two miles from
the silver mine on the Tetchlof farm
that attracted so much attention
about fifteen years ago. Facilities
for harvesting the silver were per
fected at considerable expense, but
when the "pocket" was emptied, that
ended the silver dream of great
wealth. It is to be hoped that the
copper-colored dream will not have
so undesirable an ending.
Mr. Shannon, we are informed.
has sent to New York city after an
apparatus for smelting 'ore, or else
he has sent some of the ore to be
tested, we can't say which, and soon
we shall know all about It. In the
meantime, as mentioned in the start
of this article, don't get excited, and
don't begin to dream of boosting the
price of Hawley real estate any high
er than it is in these days of high
living and living high.
As to That Pino Forest
On Hnwloy's Southern Crest.
Hawley people have been doing
lots of talking this week about the
article iu this department last Friday
regarding tho pine forest on the
southern boundary of the town. Peo
pie are looking at those pine trees
to-day who never gave them any con-
sideration whatever before. Those
trees were there, and, so far as they
gave the matter any thought, had al
ways been thero; and, by the same
lino or reasoning, would always re-
main there. That pine park is the
first thing the stranger entering the
town for the first time notices. They
appeal to his sense of beauty. They
are cooling and restful to tho eye,
suggestive of comfort, and are in
every way most desirable and attrac
tive. If by some magic they wore re
moved to-night, when to-morrow's
sun shono on the uninviting rocks
and stones in all their barren hlde
ousness, every man, woman and
child of Hawley would voice in em
phatic torms the calamity that had
come to the town.
As a matter of fact, I am Informed
that two citizens of Hawley own
those trees and the laud on which
they stand. I have been told by one
of the owners that he had been ask
ed to set a price on the pine lumber,
which he had refused to do, because
he could not entertain the thought
of robbing the town of such a source
of beauty and health.
There! That is tho idea Robbing
tho Town! But, what right has
the town to assume in any sense any
proprietary rights to those trees?
None, whatever! Furthermore, It
Is not fair to ask two Individuals to
refrain from converting their . own
personal property into cash, if thev
desire so to do, simply because all the
rest of the town want the trees to
The writer suggested to one of tho
owners of the pine forest that the
borough pay them the value of the
lumber, and that they in turn deed
to the borough tho real estate on
which the trees stand,- the borough
pledging itseir to preserve and pro
tect the fores't. He said ho would be
glad to entor into such an arrange-
ment. In that way tho park of trees
might bo secured for all time to
come; and Mawley could not do a
wiser act. It would be an easy mat-
tor to raise the money by popular
auDscnption. way, mo school chll
uren couia raise me amount in a

don't live in Hawley, but I always

want to own at least a little branch
of ono of those beautiful pine trees.

Dr. Tether Has a Now
And Speedy Hupinobilc.
Dr. A. Tether, the dentist, became
the possessor of a new Hupmobilo
on Saturday last. Say! Look here!
Tho writer used to hear tell of all
sorts of ways of getting rid of ob
jectlonable toeth, from knocking
them out with a hammer and an old-
fashioned ten-penny cut-nail, to
hitching a string around the molar,
tying tho loose end of the string to a
door knob, getting the victim s at
tention in an effort to "see the little
birdie," then shutting tho door with
a bang as the tooth leaped skyward
like a base ball, and the boy was sup
posed to say, "Huh! Never hurt me
a bit!" We're now wondering if
dentists can't mako a combination of
auto, string, boy, tooth and a sudden
turning on of power so that it will
work to advantage all around. If
we only personally knew some good
natured dentist wo would be tompted
to take up the matter with him right
away in the interest of boys, you

Mrs. Helen M. Cooke is giving the
Camp Fire Girls of Hawley plenty to
do. Last Sunday members of both
camps walked to Wangum falls and
return. Two boys started ahead and
blazed trees, bent twigs and arrang
ed stones. The girls had to track
the boys and get to the falls by ac
tually following tho trail. The day
was windy and their guardian kept
tho girls moving, so that they might
not take cold.
On Monday night Blanche Plum
and Gladys BIgart were initiated in
wangum camp. The ceremony took
place at W. A. Quinney's residence.
The lunch was served by Lavlnla
tjumney. The lunch must be palate
ablo and good, and for twelve peo
ple the cost must be less than one
dollar. The Camp Fire Girls aro all
becoming famous cooks.
