Tunkhannock, the beautiful
town that is tho county seat of Wyo
lng county, is talking about improv-
ing its main (Tioga) street. The
I best thing that Tunkhannock can
do is to get busy and pave it, just
like Honesdale Is about to pave its
Main street, thereby eliminating this
monkey business of "fixing" tho
street every year, and save money be
sides. J. B. Robinson & Son, proprie
tors of tho Spring Hill Poultry farm,
are now caring for nearly 1,000 baby
chickens, besides about 200 duck
lings. After the chicks are hatched
in tho incubator they are removed
to tho brooder house. Tho house,
which was built this spring is equip
ped with the Hall colony brooder. It
is considered to bo one of tho best
systems for caring for young chickB.
The brooder is composed of a small
stove, in which a coal Ore is kopt,
and a hood, The hood rests down
over the stovo to within six or eight
inches from tho floor, allowing the
babe chickens to go -in and out.
Cloth cut at Intervals is fastened to
tho hood. This does away with corn
ers and prevents tho chickens from
huddling, thus saving many chicks'
lives. Mr. Robinson says they have
lost only a few chicks this year com
pared with former years, when oth
er means were used to care for them
after they left the Incubator. The
Indian Runner duck will bo raised
on tho Spring Hill farm. Duck eggs
are In great demand and they bring
almost one-third more In price than
chickens' eggs,

of the town and county, or gives in
detail the local news, which can be
obtained from no other source.
Everybody reads, and that is why
the unpretentious local paper is tho
best paper in the world."

The Morning Press, Strouds-
uurg new daily, reached our desk this
(Monday) afternoon, fresh with
news. It has the appearance of a
neat and progressive sheet. Here's
success to the new paper.
Our Prehistoric Ancestors Had Rudi
mentary Ideas of Sculpture.
Our far off ancestors of tho stone ago,
the rude nnd primitive men of the qua
ternary epoch to whom tho use of fire
was unknown nnd whose arms consist
ed of n few roughly hewn pieces of
flint, nevertheless appear to have had
some rudimentary artistic ideas. In
fact, sculptures dating from 200,000
years wore shown at tho last congress
of prehistoric archaeology and anthro
pology, which recently held its four
teenth meeting at Geneva.
This subject was treated by a French
scientist, M. Dharvent of Bethune, and
be showed specimens of sculptured
silex representing animal figures which
were found in tho alluvial strata of
the quntornary epoch among arms and
instruments of tho same period. M.
Dharvent mado an interesting commu
nication to the congress about these
first trials at sculpture which have yet
been discovered. Natural stones were
used which bad some resemblance to
animal figures, and these were after
ward retouched so as to finish tho
work. Ono of tho striking specimens
is the bond of a monkey, iu which tho
features are very clenrly seen, espe
cially when viewed in profile, says
Scientific American. Heads of other
animals and birds arc also among the
most remnrUable specimens. Authori
ties on prehistoric questions consider
that tho strata bearlUK these Muds date
from about 220.000 years.
Asphalt In Antiquity.
That asphalt wis known to the an
cients is a well attested fact, says Scl
elce, its use ns a binder for masonry
in Babylon being in point, but of its use
other than this we known nothing.
Strabo tells us thnt as early as 2000
B. O. tho streets of Babylon were pav
ed, and so, too, presumably were the
great roads leading out from tho many
gates of that city. Babylon situ
ated , in tho alluvial plain of Mesopo
tamia, and its building material was al
most entirely cloy, either as such or
in tho form of bricks. It seems rather
doubtful that these latter were used to
pave tho streets at that early date. As
phalt was abundant and much used in
building operations, and It does not
seem Improbable that it was utilized
to Improve tho streets.
How to Remove Old Wall Paper.
A good way to remove old -wall paper
Is to use tho following solution: A thick
pasty solution should be made by add
ing flour and a few spoons of salt Into
boiling water. After this Is made add
a few ounces of acetic acid, which
may bo purchased at any drug store.
This paBty solution should bo applied
with a brush to tho old wall paper In
quantities. After a few minutes the
old paper can be removed in .great
strips very easily and with very little
dust or dirt.
of Food
Made with different Baking Powders
From a Series of Elaborate Chemical Tests :
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of three different kinds of baking powder
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum and submitted
separately to the action of the digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows:
Bread made with
Royal Cream of Tartar Powder:
g 100 Per Cent. Digested
Bread made with N
phosphate powder:
684 Per Cent. Digested
Bread made with
alum powder:
1 67 Per Cent. Digested!
These tests, which are absolutely reliable and
unprejudiced, make plain a fact of great importance
to everyone : Food raised with Royal, a cream of
tartar Baking Powder, is shown to be entirely diges
tible, while the alum and phosphate powders are found
to largely retard the digestion of the food made from
Undigested food is not only wasted food, but it
is the source of very manv bodily ailments.
A pleasant wedding occurred at
the home of Judge and Mrs. Perry
A. Clark on Dyberry Place last Sat
urday afternoon at 4 o'clock, when
Miss Mildred A. Kyte and Arthur
Kirby, were united in marriage by
Rev. Will H. Hlller. Miss Amy E.
Clark, of Now Paltz, N. Y., of the
State Normal School of that place,
played the wedding march. Master
William Varcoe and Joyce Marot of
Philadelphia, led the bride Tind
bridegroom. The attendants carried
flowers. Tho wedding ring was
borne upon a silver tray. They
stood at each side of tho contracting
couple luring the ceremony.
The bride was becomingly attired
in a gown of white embroidered ma
terial. Now and thon an event of
this kind has a human touch, a sen
timental circumstance that appeals
and makes "the whole world kin."
The bride and bridegroom had grown
up together as chums in 'Hastings,
England. Tho bridegroom's father,
William Kirby, has a hardware store
there but at 14 years Arthur de
termined to carve out his own place
in the world and left home. He liv
ed in London and other English cit
ies, coming to Canada Ave years ago
and shortly afterwards to tho United
States. For some time he has been
employed as an electrician with the
Laurel Lino, in Scranton. A few
months ago tho bride came to join
her childhood chum and at the ur
gent request of her great-aunt, Mrs.
Perry A. Clark, she prepared for the
wedding at her home. With that
sweet, lovable manner, peculiar to
English girls, Miss Kyto made many
friends during the few weeks she had
been hero. This was demonstrated
by the number of useful and beauti
gifts her friends gave her. With
that hospitality for which Judge and
Mrs. Clark are noted, a largo circle
of friends and relatives were present
and enjoyed the splendid luncheon
served at 5 o'clock. Mr. and Mrs. E.
H. Marot and daughter, Joyce, of
Philadelphia, came to Honesdale in
thoir own car. Mrs. Marot is a sis
ter of Mrs. Kirby and will be re
membered by many Honesdale peo
ple, having frequently visited here.

their honeymoon.
An interesting circumstance con
nected with this event pleased the
few who knew. It seems that when
Miss Clara Torrey was in England
six years ago she secured a few
plants of tho English Daisy, famed
in song by Robert Burns, from the
yard at Canterberry Cathedral. Miss
Torrey has succeeded in developing
these exquisite flowers and with her
usual thoughtfulness, sent Miss Kyte
a bouquet. There were a number of
English people present and the old
home flowers worn by the bride
brought tears of memory and joy of
their girlhood days in the fields of
merry old England.
