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

met with a painful accident.
He was evidentlv standing tnn
close to the machine as his shirt

was drawn into the revolving augers.

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,
' 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.

there. He t6ld of the great Impetus
that had been given Bible study and
the formation of classes among the
people of his own church and oth
ers. There was a spirited election on
Wednesday morning for clerical and
lay commissioners to attend the gen
eral assembly to be held this year
at Atlanta, Ga., May 5. The follow
ing clergymen were elected:
Rev. G. W. Bull, D. D., ot the
First Presbyterian church, Scranton;
Rev. James Lelshman, Dunmore;
Rev. A. M. Brown, Plymouth; Rev.
A. J. Kerr, D. D., Wllkes-Barre.

Resolutions were adopted to the
effect that beforo any candidate is
admitted to the Presbytery that an
investigation bo mado into his char-j
acter, his standing in the community
from which ho comes, and his edu
cational qualifications. These reso
lutions will be sent to the general
assembly when it meets in Atlanta,
with a view of having them incor
porated into the rules governing the
Presbyteries throughout the coun
try. If the candidates do not come
up to the qualifications required of
those taking their first orders in the
chuch, they will not be admitted un
til one year shall have passed or un
til they are able to pass the exami
nation that is required of an original
applicant. The object of the resolu
tions is to make a certain standard
of educational qualifications for
every one entering the Presbytery.

the applicants will be compelled to
spend another year at college before
they will be admitted to the Presb'y
teryi, Two were admitted to exami
nation. They were Rev. T. W. Davis

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.

anil Rev. AVldttnkcr Preached.
The members of Freedom Lodge,
I. O. O. F., No. 188, will celebrate
their ninety-fourth anniversary this
evening in their rooms in the Inde
pendent building at a banquet from
six to eight o'clock. The banquet
will be followed by a special musi
cal program. The anniversary com
mittee comprising Messrs. J. A. Bo
die, M. E. Simons, C. C. Gray, R. J.
Miller and A. 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
"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
