lighted. Robert Louis Stevenson.
PARCEL POST A MONEY SAVER.
Maybe the parcel post isn't a good
thing for the government as well as
for the individual citizen who makes
a careful study as to how he can
save money by patronizing this new
postofflco service. From an editor
ial article in Farm and Fireside we
glean the interesting fact that on a
single transaction the State of Ohio
saved the tidy sum of $13,600 by
making use of the parcel post to for
ward Its automobile tags for the
present year. Last year the tags
went out by express, at an average of
12 cents each. This year the tags
were distributed by parcel post, and
the average cost was eight cents. As
people come to study the parcel post
system and understand its beneflts
as applied to their particular trans
portation needs, it is coming more
and more into use, at great saving to
GET TO WORK NEXT WEEK.
Honesdale's clean-up week is near
at hand. Present indications are
that it will bo a pronounced success.
The people seem to be intensely in
terested. All of which is exceedingly
The city authorities have for
years been giving the annual advice
and warning to place premises in a
sanitary condition. But they failed
to stir up the right kind of enthusi
asm. Now we have the promise of
better results. The Honesdale Im
provement Association has Interest
ed councils, the Board of Trade and
other organizations, and the com
bined Influence has generated univer
sal interest. There will be more
people at work cleaning up their
premises than over before. The
negligent neighbor of a tenant who
gets down to business will be sham
ed into doing the same thing. So
the spirit of enthusiasm will spread
and by the end of the week the city
will doubtless be spick and span and
clean. The warm weather will come
upon us with fewer disease-breeding
accumulations of filth. That will
mean better health.
Be prepared to get out the rake
and whitewash pall and join in one
of the greatest movements privato
enterprise has ever inaugurated in
SANITATION OF SUMMEB RE
SORTS. The approach of the vacation sea
son makes it desirable to note again
tffPnecessity for paying attention to
sanitary conditions in camps or re
sorts. Not all resorts where one may
spend a vacation are health resorts.
Indeed, many of them aro just the
opposite, and somo are centres from
which ill health originates. Typhoid
is the index of the sanitary status of
rural health resorts. While investi
gation is difficult on account of the
lack of adequate supervision of so
called health resorts by public au
thorities, yet it behooves the seeker
after health or recreation to pay
somo attention to this matter.
Many health resorts Include In
their literature statements as to san
itary conditions which afford at
least one means of forming an opin
ion as to tho desirability of patroniz
ing such resorts. Tho health depart
ments of somo states provide for tho
systematic inspection of summer re
sorts with regard to sanitation. New
York for tho past six years has sys
tematically inspected tho summer re
sorts of that state, of which there
are many, and these reports should
prove valuable to porsons contem
plating going to such places In that
Michigan Is anothor state contain
ing a largo number of resorts, which
likewise looks after these places
carefully. Campers, also, should ex
erclso great care to select places with
unquestionable water supply, and to
adopt proper camp arrangements as
to the disposal ot waste, prevention
of breeding of flies, proper protec
tion from mosquitoes, etc. Typhoid,
according to the Journal of the
American Medical Association, is
really a rural disease with its great
est Incidence shortly following the
height of the vacation season, and
much of it may be traced to bad
sanitation at the vacation resorts.
The report for 1912 of tho New
York State Board of Health shows
that in that state the occurrence of
typhoid In country and city was In
the proportion of 12.8 in the former
to 14.5 in the latter per hundred
thousand of population; deducting
tho number of cases which investi
gation would clearly determine had
originated at rural summer resorts,
the figures would undoubtedly be in
favor of a lesser origin in the city.
Taking this disease as the index, the
necessity for care in selecting a place
to spend the summer vacation is apparent.
MORE ON ME NEW TARIFF.
Congressman Aaron Krelder's
maiden speech, before congress on the
tariff Issue now pending, expresses
most admirably the stand a major
ity of Pennsylvanians take with ref
erence to the cut and slash policy
of the Democrats now in control of
the machinery of the national gov
ernment. At tho outset Mr. Kreid
er calls attention to the fact that
while the Democrats are acting in a
manner, they themselves a few
years ago, would have denounced
as the acme of bossism and gag rule,
they do not actually represent a ma
jority of the people of the country.
As Mr. Kreider says, the Democrats
do not care to have their bill dis
cussed at length.
"The legislation, and especially
when it is of such a sweeping char
acter as that proposed by House bill
3321, should be carefully considered,
and ample time should bo allowed
for a free and open discussion before
tho entire House. This bill has been
prepared by our Democratic friends
in secret caucus and is now present
ed in Its completed form with the
distinct understanding and deter
mination of our friends on the other
side of the House that it shall pass
in its present form."
He dwells upon tho shoo industry
at some length, because he is more
familiar with that line of business
than any other. He calls attention
to the fact that in America it is a
bigger industry than either wool or
sugar but, notwithstanding, tho Dem
ocrats have given it absolutely no
consideration. This is what he says
in regard to its effect on the Bhoe
"Hero is a great and most impor
tant industry pleading for a duty
that will protect the cost of labor,
and labor only. Tho competition
has been fierce, free and open; it has
caused the greatest possible econ
omy to be practiced In the minutest
detail of manufacture. The compe
tition has forced the reduction of
profits to tho point where only the
fittest have been able to survive, and
now with unfair, unequal competi
tion of foreign-mado goods, with a
labor cost that is only a fraction of
tho American cost, It remains for tho
American manufacturer to either
turn over the business to his foreign
competitor, reduce the wages so that
ho may bo in a position to compete
and retain his market, or remove his
factory to a foroign land, which no
doubt many will do.
"The purposo and object of the
distinguished gentlemen who wrote
this bill was no doubt to legislate
In favor of tho consumlnc nubile.
but who is it that will really benefit
u tins urn is passed?
"Tho farmers and stock raisers
cannot, because their products are
on tho free list, or nearly so.
Tho manufacturers cannot, be
cause their products aro on tho free
list, or protected by an insufficient
The millions upon millions of
wage-earners cannot because their
products must bo sold in the open
mantei, wun roreign competition.
"Tho class that Will benefit aro the
indolent and idle rich; their business
will not bo affected. "They toil not,
neither do they spin," so they have
noining at stake."

about it on 8th pngo to-day.

Monday to Saturday, beginning May
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 1.
Last bulletin gave forecasts of dis
turbance to cross continent May 3 to
7, warm wave 2 to G, cool wave 5 to
9. This will cause unusually high
temperatures and dry weather but
somo rains will occur irregularly In
various places as the cool wavo
comes In. Our danger signals will
hang out for the great steamship
route to Europe from May 8 to 14,
beginning near the grand banks, in
tho vicinity of Newfoundland, tot
far from May 8.
Next disturbance will reach Pa
cific coast about May 8, cross Pa
cific slope by close of 9, great cen
tral valleys 10 to 12, eastern section
13th. Warm wavo will cross Pa
cific slope about May 8, great cen
tral valleys 10, eastern sections 12,
Cool wavo will cross Pacific slope
about May 11, great central valleys
12, eastern sections 14th.
This will be a fierce storm from
the Pacific to the Atlantic as the
storm crosses the continent from
about 8 to 13. There are indications
that it will be at Its greatest force
on May 12, about the time, or a lit
tle before, It reaches meridian 79, a
line running north near Pittsburg,
Pa. While this storm is not expect
ed to be so dangerous as some of
the recent storms, all should bo on
the lookout. There may be no tor
nadoes but it is best to be on the
safe side. Much greater storms are
expected last part of May.
EWNOTE Foster's Weather Bul
letin is a new copyrighted feature
that The Citizen is going to try out.
We are going to watch the predic
tions and forecasts, and urge our
readers to do the same. We want
to satisfy ourselves whether there is
enough in long-range weather prog
nostications to warrant their publi
cation and observance.
By the way, the warm wave men
tioned above as being due from the
2nd to the Gth of May seems to be
panning out all right at this writ
ing. Let's observe all the rest of it.

There were no Monday bargain snles when tho old bit of philosophy was new, yet It fits as
well ns if it wns coined for the occnslon. Thoughtlessness is tho parent of careless shopping; you
don't know whnt you miss; you don't care, because you don't see the bargains tliat nro going hero
on Monday. If you aro among the cureless few who don't stop hero on Monday, reform, turn over

The readers of tins paper will be
pleased to learn that there Is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been ablo to cure In all
its stages, and that Is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posi
tive cure now known to tho medi
cal fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional dlseaso, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure Is taken internally,
acting directly upon tho blood and
mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of the dlseaso, and giving tho patient
strength by building up the consti
tution 'and assisting nature In doing
its work. Tho proprietors have bo
much faith In its curative powers
that they offer One Hundred Dollars
for any case that it falls to cure.
