The National Printing, Pub lishing, Advertising' and Allied Trades' Exposition at the Grand Central Palace, New York City, end ed last Saturday, April 26. It prov ed to bo the greatest success of its kind ever held from the fact It had the greatest display of everything' peruuuiug iu uie prmuuB un, repre- sentatlve of the largest manufactur ers of presses, folding,' stapling, binding, electrotyping, type-setting, type casting machines in the country. Also paper manufacturers, printers' supply houses with their hundreds of various labor and cost saving de vices everywhere in evidence as a temptation to the craftsmen. One of the striking features of the big show was the various makes of auto presses constantly in operation which seems almost human as once given the power they do their own feeding and print entirely without the as sistance of a mechanic. This display together with the linotype and mono type machines proved to be the largest drawing card. From the editor to the devil, together with thousands of men, women and chil dren, there was an intermingling of good fellowship, all anxious to grasp ideas of what wonderful results can be and were actually accomplished at the exposition and elsewhere. Another feature worthy of mention was large presses in operation, es pecially the large two-color Miehle press printing thousands of the ex hibition number. This fine illus trated magazine in colors was the work of Zeese-Wilkinson Co., New York; also H. Hinzo Machinery Co.'s Caxton presses are deserving of men tion for the handsome samples of three-color work they were printing and distributing. This exhibit also distributed beautiful half-tone en gravings of President Woodrow Wil son. The Goss Comet press issued na- pers each day for free samples of what this press can do. Tho Mergenthaler Linotype Co.'s exhibit was a credit to the show. The Citizen has one of these ma chines and sets up their paper each issue from it. Honesdale printing offices were represented as follows: The Wayne Independent, Editor B. F. Haines, Foreman Grant C. Tallman and William Haggerty; Var coe Printing House, Edward Varcoe; Citizen Publishing Co., Floyd A. Thompson, linotype operator, and Foreman Chas. L. Bassett. Surely no one would ever care to hear of printing as a lost art when It is conceded without printing that the world's progress would drop back five centuries and from tho fact that representa tives from Honesdale had the Dleas- uro of witnessing the great advance ment in their respective following they all feel benefited by their visit 10 me exnmition and feel assurred of no such calamity while the pres ent world exists. Editor B. F. Haines. Grant P.. Tallman and Wm. Haggerty of the wuyne independent, and Chas. L. Bassett of The Citizen, were shown through the American Press Associa tion's large plant. This courtesy of Mr. E. C. Potter, the general mana ger, snail long be remembered. WILLIAM TEACHMAN INJURED. William Teachman. whlln nnprn r. ing a power auger in the McKannn cooperage last Saturday morning, met with a painful accident. He was evidentlv standing tnn close to the machine as his shirt sleeve became entancled in a sorow on tho auger and before tho belt couiu oe tnrown off Mr. Teachman was drawn into the revolving augers. 'Ho was badly cut about the face wnere the head of the 'screw struck mat part of his person. His cloth ing was torn in shreds. Mr. Teach. man, however, was able to walk to Dr. P. B. Petersen's office, whern the wounds were dressed. Ho was certainly fortunate in es caping more serious injury. MADE FOREMAN OF PLANT. Thomas F. Gallacher. former iHr- trlct manager of tho Honesdale di vision of tho Consolidated Tele phones of Pennsylvania, writes us that ho has bqen appointed foreman of plant of said company In Scranton. He says, however, ho will mako Honesdale his home for some time at least or after reorganization of mo company, which is still in tho re ceiver's hands. Owing to a largo amount of new work in Scranton Mr. Gallagher claims that he has been obliged to postpone his leave of ab sence until ho has become accustom ed to his new duties that of plant loreman. his neaith, he says, is much better. HONESDALE IS ALL RIGHT. Fort Scott, Kan., April 23, 1913. Editor Citizen: What is the matter with Hones dale? Is It possible you have been getting along all these years without any paving wading in the mud. As Martin Cauneld says, "the way to pave is to pave." Our town, Fort Scott, a town not much larger than Honesdale, with a less number of factories, and no more wealth, has eight or ten miles of streets paved with vitrified brick. and this work has been done without money from saloon licenses. Moral: Close your saloons. Yours truly, R. A. WILLIAMS. SALE MORE IMPORTANT THAN FUNERAL. ' A Monticello woman could not bo prevailed upon to go to the funeral of her sister last week because there was to be an auction in town the following day, and she couldn't at tend both without tiring herself out, and she must attend the auction, funeral or no funeral, you just bet. That is a very sad prise, and while It may have its humorous side it has its pathetic side as well, and as the pathetic Is so much greater than the humorous, it is tearful.

They were Rev. T. W. Davis of Ulster, Pa., and Rev. John E. Pritchard, of Bethany, Wayne coun tp. Rev. J. J. Hankin made a very interesting report on temperance, urging the churches to more liberal gifts to the General Assembly's tem pernncGKCommittee which is doing a splendid work. . A plea for Presbyterian parents to iiW:raBe their sons to enter the ministry and an interesting state ment on the work accomplished by mo college noard or tne Presbyterian church were tho principal subiects of two addresses delivered at Tues day night's meeting of Presbytery. The first subject was elaborated on by Rev. John R. Tuttle. D. D.. of York, who is a member of the special committee of the Presbyter ian cnurcn appointed to assist in in creasing the membership of the min istry. Rev. Robert MacKenzIe, sec retary of the Presbyterian college board, told of the work of that body in increasing the number of Presby terian colleges In tho United States trom twenty to sixty-six Dr. Tuttle spoke on "A Crisis In the Kingdom," and in asking parents to encourage their sons in Joining the ranks of the ministry, ho pointed out the nobleness of that calling and .stated that leaders in God's kingdom will always bo found herein. Ho stated that there are not nnnnc-h ministers in the country to fill all the pulpits of the church and gave as a reason for this condition the lack or interest displayed by parents. George C.

Lindsay have com pleted arrangements for one of tho most elaborate occasions in the hlB tory of the Honesdale order. Sun day evening Rev. A. L. Whittaker of the Grace Episcopal church, preach ed an eloquent sermon especially for the Odd Fellows of Honesdale. The members of the local order attended in a body. The occasion was the an nual services of the Honesdale lodge. Rev. Whittaker said in part: "To the Odd Fellows of Honesdale and Wayne county and any visiting members we give most hearty wel come. Many if not most of you are faithful members of various Chris tian congregations. All of you by the very foundation principles of your order are in hearty sympathy with the objects for which tho Church of Jesus Christ stands. So wo are not, in welcoming you here tonight, extending the hand of recon- cilation to those that are estranged, but looking into tho faces of broth ers whose interests aro identical with our own, whose earnestness is unmis takable, whose power is for good Is as evident as your willingness to use it. Let me speak to you briefly to- nignt of the sort of loyalty wo men owo to our common Master, Jesus Christ, and of the value to the place where we live of such loyalty. Most J. . . . oi us were present me omer evening, at the formal opening of the Gurney Electric Elevator Works. It was an inspiring sight. that building so perrectly appointed, that so thor oughly organized and trained force of men, and the townspeople gather ed to show their good will. Such gatherings of our citizens are dis tinctly contributory to the moral and spiritual health of the town. Are you surprised to hear me use those adjectives "moral" and "spiritual?" in connection with a meeting of our citizens in a place of business to of fer our congratulations to the man agers of that business? But I do feel that the very being together In one place with a common purpose of good was significant for "the moral and spiritual health of our town. "You ask whether a certain town is a good place in which to live and one of the things which you will not neglect but which you will consider of the utmost Importance is Just that the spirit of the place. I wish to speak tonight of the need, if there is to be in a town the very best and most helpful moral and spiritual at mosphere, of a fine manly loyalty to the principles and to the Person of Jesus Christ. "Let me take a text which will serve to crystallze our thought. Jesus said, 'Follow Me.' He said that to the rich young ruler. He said it to poor men like the fisher men on the Sea of Galilee. He said it to men whose lives were pure and to men whose lives had been unholy. Ho said it to men who had given their spiritual instincts a chance and to men who had stifled every better thought. "That 'Follow Me' of Jesus Christ is a direct personal appeal to tho men of to-day to all sorts of men, to every man. Let no man say, that sort of thing is not in my line. I have to make a living, and that is all that I have time to attend to. And besides I am not that sort of a man. Let the good men do that work. I am a bad one, and could not help. I should only hinder." Mathew was precisely that sort of a man. You can't mention a man in this town who was moro sordid, more bent on getting possession of the almighty shekel and not at all particular how he got it. Ho had no public spirit not a particle. He was all for Mat thew, and for no one elso. Ho was out for Matthew's good and for no one's else's. He was one of the most unlikely men In all Palestine to take after Jesus Christ. "Jesus Christ was no one-sided, anaemic, visionary and unpractical sort of a man. He was very real and very everyday, with a message of good for tho higher life for the men He met day by day. The blood reached to ills brain and it expanded and warmed His great heart. It mado Him enouch of a man to he willing to die for a good cause. Take your heroes who have under tho ex citement, it may have been, of the moment, been ready to go to tho stake or the gallows for their native land or for human freedom. Jesus Christ was the Prince of them all. And He has been given to men as the One great divinely raised-up spir itual Leader, Men need leadership in the spiritual Held, It Is tho hard est field, In somo respects, of all to till. It Is the most universally neces sary, for It means the highest de velopment of manhood. "So some of us need dynamiting spiritually. It 1s natural and desir able that wo should pay attention to the spiritual side of our nature. The man who does not do that is one sided and shallow. I do not care who he may bo. He is in danger of disaster himself, and will surely by his example injuriously affect those about him. His influence will be bad in his own home, In, his place of business, and in tho town. Wher ever he is, he will carry an atmos phere of contagion. Ho will stand for an absence of soma of the things (Continued on Page Bight.) STEG.MAYER GRAVE&fTPTIAJj. Earl W. Stegmayer, son of Prof, and Mrs. J. J. Stegmayer, formorly of this place, now of Elmlra, N. Y., and Miss Elsie Irene Graves were married April 19, at the bride's homo by Rev. William F. Meyer, In.

The bridegroom is manager of a store in Elmlra, iN. Y.
