There Is smoke along the rivers
Where tho chilly angler shivers,
As ho vainly trios to catch the gamey
Folks are longing for tho Powers

So those smoking, roaring flres may

gTZSTZN for days, and the eyes of
PSfrepftJ her citizens have been anxi
ously, possibly piously,
turned heavenward with tho desire
that the smoke clouds would be
changed to clouds of vapor, from
which would fall much-needed show
ers of rain. Woods fires have burn
ed alarmingly near the town, and
they have been fierce flres, too, re
sulting in much damage to young
trees and forest growth generally.
Talking with one Hawleyito who
has a bit of farm land near the town
which was burned over, the ravages
of tho flames were declared to have
been very severe, not only to vege
tation in general, but to game birds
and animals, as tho skeletons of rab
bits and birds were declared to bo
scattered quite freely over the burn
Fire fighting was quite out o! tho
question in the early part of the
week, the winds blew so fiercely.
Even back-firing was out of tho
question. The winds drove tho leap

selves out when they reached sec
tions that had previously been burn
And no ruin fell, and a feeling of
general alarm began to possess
everybody in the town excepting
the youngsters, to whom a forest
fire is about as interesting, exciting
and welcome as a noisy Fourth of
And, when tho subject of rain is
under consideration, the writer is
reminded of a very timely incident
that took place "once on a time in
Erin's isle. It must have taken
place, for T. F. Mangan's father re
mombered the story, which had been
banded over to him by somebody
else who probably was an eye-witness
as well as an ear-witness to tho act
It appears that in a certain part
of Ireland there was a church parish
that was mainly composed of people
who were not overly religious, and
who were inclined to make the priest
in charge earn his income. A good
old man was the pastor whom every
body loved. He was such a shepherd
as Goldsmith describes in his "Do
"A man he was to all tho country
And passing rich with forty pounds
The service past, around the pious
With steady zeal, cacli honest rustic
E'en children follow'd, with endear
And plucked his gown, to share tho
good man's smile."
But in due time tho priest died,
and the bishop appointed a young
man to tho vacancy. People shrug
ged their shoulders and said tho ap
pointment was a mistake, and that
ho wouldn't stay there very long.
After the very first service the
trouble began. One of the leaders
of the trouble-makers went up to
him and said something liko this:
"Now, Father, it is an awful dry
time, and we need rain very much,
and I do wish that you would give
us rain for tho benefit of our crops.
Sure it is an easy matter for you to
do a little thing liko tho likes of that
"Indeed, it is," said tho smiling
priest, "but I don't want to make
any mistake. Before I bring the
rain for you I want you to get tho
people together and have them de-
cido just exactly when they want
tho blessed rain and how long they
want the storm. Settle on the ex
act time and length and let me know
your decision, and than I'll see what
can be done."
That settled it, of course, for tho
priest well knew that it would bo im
possible to get a company of people
to agree on any special kind of
weather at any specified time. Tho
story goes that the young priest be
came very popular and that he was a
worthy and successful follower of
his aged predecessor.
Which story also reminds the

Hawley Knights of Columbus
Attend Scrnnton Conclave.
Hawley has a branch of tho
Knights of Columbus. Whether it
is an active branch tho writer does
not know. It may bo liko tho boy's
idea of Christianity. This particular
boy when asked if his father was a
Christian said, "Yes, paw's a Christ
yun, but he ain't workin' at it." But
that has nothing to do with tho fact
that T. F. Mangan, Charles J. Mc
Hale, F. J. Curran and J. L. Curran
represented Hawley at tho big con
vention of the Knights of Columbus
at Scranton this week.

Somo Other Things.
Tho writer doesn't liko to be
tempted, and yet, hang it all! there
is a fascination about being tempted
that makes a fellow walk right along
with his head up and keep his heels
a-clickin'. Now wouldn't it tempt
you to have somebody liko genial W.
S. Watts unwrap a paper in front of
your face and open up to your as
tonished gaze an oven half dozen
trout, not one of which was less
than a foot in length? 'Now, don't
try to dodge tho subject by saying
that "there a'n t any such trout.
for that was the writer's experience
on Tuesday forenoon. To the In
quiry as to where Mr. Watts got
thoso speckled beauty samples he
just smiled some more and shook his
head with the remark, "Oh, no! We
never mention it!
There seems to bo a space of about
a thousand miles between trout and

'Squire Amutcrmnn's Experience
With Garden Snss, Etc.
" You don't pretend to tell me that
you actually had potatoes so far ad
vanced that the frost nipped 'em?"
was the remark to 'Squire Ammer-
man on Tuesday, to which he re
plied that not only did the frost get
his ambitious "spuds," but it also
got corn, a few hills of Golden Ban
tam, that he had planted with the
resolve that ho would take chances
on its escaping the frost. It did not
escape. Neither did Ills grapes and
other varieties of tender vegetation.
The 'Squire says he always plants
some of his garden very early. If it
escapes tho frost ho is ahead of the
game and can boast a little over his
slower neighbors, and If it doesn't.
then ho Is no worse off than they
Wedding Bells Ring Ahead
Of tho Month of June.
June is the month of brides, roses
and strawberries; but weddings take

Erlo Officials Mnko Tours
Among Their Telegraphers.
Considerable anxiety was manifest
In Hawley over tho fact that, in a
special car, officials of tho Erlo Rail
road Company were going over tho
system interviewing their telegraph
ers on the subject of a recent ad
vanco in wages granted them. This
is tho third official visit of quite re
cent occurrence. The story of tho
situation is about like this:
The demands of the telegraphers
of the Erie railroad system for a
raise in wages were at first turned
down. Then a strike was called
which resulted in 97 of the tele
graphers voting favorably for an in
crease in wages, for better conditions
and for a regular schedule between
the telegaphers and tho Erlo com
pany. As that was nearly a unanim
ous vote the company one week after
the result became known sent a
special train over nearly their entire
system granting an increase of from
S2 to S7 a month to their block and
signal men, who had previously been
reduced those amounts. Instead of
a raise it was a restoration. All
telegraphers were granted an in
crease of from $2.50 to ?G a month.
This was done apparently as a free
will offering. Tho telegraphers bo
llove that the company is not de
sirous of allowing their organization
to wane, in tho face of this increase
and restoration, and that when or
ganization is believed to be powerless
tins increase will be lopped rlcht off.
The telegraphers all talk of standing
by the organization and insisting on
its recognition and a regular sched
ule of wages, hours, conditions, etc.
Some Features of
Memorial Day in Hawley.
The Camp Flro Girls are meeting
with much success in their money
raising campaign for the proper ob
servance of Memorial Day in Haw
ley. Some little idea of how they are
going to do things was gleaned after
a few minutes' conversation with E.
James Colgate, who will be Chief
Marshall of tho day.
The parade will form on Main
street and is expected to move at
u:40 o clock, a. m. It will pass over
tho principal streets of the town,
halting at the Eddy bridge where a
short address will bo delivered in
memory of the marines and sailors
of the various United States wars, at
tho conclusion of which flowers will
be strewn on the waters of the Lack
awaxen. From the Eddy brldce tho nrocos-
slon will move onward to the ceme
tery grounds where the regular rit
ual services of the G. A. R. will take
place. Then will follow a natriotlc
address by a speaker from Hunting
ton, Pa., who is declared to be one of
the best public sneakers In tho State.
This will be tho first Memroial Day
speecn in Hawley in several years.
and that it will bo enthusiastically
receiveu goes without any further
One of the features of the Darade
will bo 300 school children in tho
line of march, heading the process
sion and carrying bunting. At the
grounds these children will glvo tho
ueautirui nag salute exercise.
Undoubtedly there will be civic
orders represented in the parade, as
unior Marshall (Jolnato has invited
all such to go along.
Lakoville P. O. S. of A. Camn has
sent in word that they will be in
line, and the boys of Gravity havo
Deen inviteu ana win probably come.
From the cemetery tho line of
march will bo up Hudson street to
1. u. o. b . building where the parade
will disband. Then follows one of
tho biggest and best dinners that
was ever eaten, served by the Daugh
ters of America, and at tho ridicul
ously low price of only 25 cents. No
young man with his best girl need
have a very fat pockot-book in order
to havo a splendid time,, with a
GOOD dinner nicely served, in Haw
ley on Memorial Day.
Camp Flro Girls ITavo
A Benefit Entertainment.
It was Schardt's hall that was
rented for the Camp Flro Girls and
the Blue Birds' Nest. As there were
various furnishings necessary for
these societies it was decided to hold
an entertainment and raise a little
money. When the Guardian went to
the Baptist church officials to find
out if they would liko a repetition of
the recent entertainment given by tho
girls they said they would turn out
