"In a garden was laid
A most beautiful maid,
As fair and as bright as the morn;
The first hour of her life
She became a lov'd wife,
And she died before she was born.",
(Answer to above next week.)
O! no! I didn't write the
above. T. P. Mangan
handed it over, along with
a little bundle of Hawley
stories and reminiscence.
The above was given to him by an
an old Irish schoolmaster and pro
found scholar by the name of Thos.
Burke, who at one time lived In
Hawley. It Is a conundrum and
sounds weird enough; but it has an
answer, and is all right. Think it
over, and see if your answer agrees
with the answer as you will find it
In this department next week.
The Opening of Hnwlcy's
New Drug Store.
James McOinty, (no relative we
are reliably informed of an indi
vidual by that name who some twenty-live
years ago went down "to the
bottom of the sea," and who we ar,e
also reliably Informed "must be very
wet, for they haven't found him
yet,") opened his new drug store on
Keystone street on Saturday night
last, and the opening was declared
to be very successful. Mr. McOinty
has had several years' experience in
the pharmaceutical line in Philadel
phia, and his many Hawley friends
are sanguine over his venture here
in his native town. It required live
clerks to wait on the customers.
Mr. Roberts is Not
A man by the name of Roberts
was injured about three weeks ago
while at work at the No. 14 coal
washery. His home Is on Marble
Hill, in West 'Hawley, where he re
sides with his wife, having no chil
dren. He was injured by being
struck on the head by a flying nut
or bolt of iron. About a week ago
he was taken to Scranton for treat
ment. On Monday of this week he
returned to Hawley, and, to the dis
appointment of his family and
friends, his condition cannot be said
to be on the line of improvement.
Wild Strawberry Blossoms
In the Month of April.
On the morning of Tuesday, April
29, the writer observed wild straw
berries in blossom near his home at
Hoadleys. This is unusually early;
and, if frosts do not prevent, there
should be an early and large yield
this season. The old couplet used
to run like this:
"March winds and April showers
Bring May flowers."
There was no hint in that jingle of
strawberry blooms in May. How
ever, if wo can experience a good
yield of that luscious berry wo
won't bother very much about the
poetical side of the subject.
Ono of tho Sights
Along the Honesdale Branch.
An unusual sight along the Hones
dale branch of the Erie is the al
most daily appearance of two fine
deer. They are invariably at the
same place and can be seen from the
car windows at a point known as
Baoba, between Glen Eyre and
KImbles. The .deer are not fright
ened at the approach of the train.
Prof. Blakeslee's Very
Prof. Blakeslee gave the mem
bers of the graduating class some
most excellent advice recently.
Knowing the tendency on the part
of some people who are thoughtless
along the line of dress, to make too
great display, thus bringing to no
tice too. marked a contrast between
them and those who aro unable to
purchase costly garments, he cau
tioned them to dress with simplicity,
emphasizing the fact that it is unfair
to make lavish display to tho Injury
of -those less fortunately circum
stanced. This advice was to both
young men as well as young women.
His advice was well received and
will undoubtedly be acted on by
every member of the class. In this
connection why not quote from Lady
W. M. Montague just two lines:
"Bo plain in dress, and sober in your

Mrs. XV. C. Knnpp Arranges a
Very Unique Entertainment.
Mrs. W. C. Knapp, ono of the
prominent workers of tho Baptist
people, prepared an entertainment
which was given In the church Wed
nesday night. It was "The Sewing
Circle of Hllltop." The parts were
sustained by Mrs. Knapp, Miss Tlllle
Tuthlll, Mrs. Keyes, Miss Edwards,
Mrs. Brining, Mrs. Ludwlg, Mrs.
Beardslee, and several others who
comprised the Sewing Circle, and
their delineations of characters and
idiosyncrasies of tho average group
of "ladles' alders" were laughable
indeed. Their closing act was the
nractlclng of their Ladles' Orches
tra. They performed on all kinds of
kitchen utensils, while a hidden or
chestra added realism to their
A short vocal and Instrumental
program followed, after which Mrs,
Helen M. Cooke'B Camp Fire Girls
took part. Instead of having the
tableaux announced, Mrs. Cooke had
programs printed, and each picture
was numbered. No. l read,
"I repeat them as I heard them
From the lips of Nawadaha
The musician tho sweet singer."

This shows ono of her prettiest girls
posed as Nawadaha. In all they
had 18 of these pictures. The 18th
"Thus It was that Hiawatha
Brought the moonlight, starlight,
Brought the sunshine of his people,
Minnehaha, Laughing Water."
This brought all the girls on tho
stage at once, and here was an ar
rangement that sent the people home
laughing. The curtain was raised
again, and the full twenty girls gave
a practical demonstration of the
soundness of a Camp Fire Girls'
lungs, by giving their yell, which,
makes the usual lusty College Yell
sound like an echo. The yell was in
the language of the Delawares, and
being interpreted it tells In the
language of that people long depart
ed, that the Camp Fire Girl Is ever
climbing paths and trails that lead
to tho best of all things and' with
the friends to whom she is ever true
she will reach the top, through
Work, Health and Love.
Mrs. Knapp's entertainment was
unique, and the largo audience that
witnessed it all went home good
natured and laughing, pronouncing
it a decided success.
Will There bo n Strike
Of tho Erie Telegraphers?
A strike ballot Is being taken by
the Order of Railway Telegraphers
of the entire Erie systom. The oper
ators are asking for a general raise
in wages of 12 per cent, and better
all around conditions. The opera
tors claim that they have not had a
raise in wages in over two years,
and that the increased cost of living
makes a raise absolutely necessary.
Absorbing Romance of a Southern
This noted novel by the author of "The Clans
man" and "The Leopard's Spots" is the topic of
the hour in the book world. It tells of vitally
interesting phases of everyday life in big busi

Serious Accident on nn
E. & XV. V. Coal Train.
Quite a' serious accident occurred
on the Wyoming division of the Erie
railroad last Saturday night that
might have resulted in the death of
Dennis Keleher, who was riding on
a coal train that was eastward
bound from Scranton. As the train
was approaching the tower at East
Lake Junction a brakeman approach
ed the car on which Keleher was
riding, and Dennis, supposing it was
an officer, sprang from fcthe car to
make his getaway. Unfortunately
his clothing caught on the car jour
nal and he was dragged for some
distance, but ere he was drawn be
neath the cars tho cloth gave way
and he lay helpless by tho side of
the track. As the caboose was pass

conductor who, realizing that some
thing was wrong, turned tho angle
cock and brought tho train to a
standstill. Keleher was picked up,
the supposition being thatio.no of his
legs had been run over by the
wheels. He was taken to Hawley
where It was found that his leg was
not crushed, but that ho was badly
bruised. The doctor who was called
in placed fifteen stitches In the
wounds of one of the unfortunate
man's legs. On Sunday morning

Hawley Doesn't Suffer for
Want of Amusement.
Hawley is well provided with
places of public amusement, and if
you are on pleasure bent you need
n't get even a little bit lonesome.
On Monday night the Teeter Broth
ers, managers of Dreamland, re
opened that place after it had un
dergone quito extensive repairs. The
performance was of the vaudeville
character. There were people on the
sidewalk until after 9 o'clock, un
able to get In, and even after that
hour when they did pass the charm
ed portals they had to stand up, as
all seats were filled.
The Standard Opera Houso open

Tuesday night Bower s rink is
open with skating till 9 o'clock and
dancing after that hour.
Hawley Folks Agitated Over
Its Pino Clad Hill.
The Hawley peoplo are beginning
to sit up and take notice of the fact
that it is possible to lose their forest
of pine trees. You will find it hard
to find those who are not in favor
of taking immediate steps to secure
the pine park as a permanent pos
session of the borough.
In this connection It Is well to
hark back to Monday evening, April
3, 1911, when the Hawley Council
held an important meeting. At that
meeting a communication from
Harry J. Atkinson was read in which
he conditionally presented to the
borougn a plot of land between
Belmonte avenue and Atkinson
street, a tract nearly as larce as the
Pine Park, and with only a street

land was that tho borough clear it of

and after three years he would make
the borough a deed, with the un
derstanding that a hose house was
to be built on It for the protection
from fire of that part of Hawley,
which includes the High School
building. The Council accepted the
gift, agreed to the terms, and thank
