His room was on the second floor and when ho awoke the Are had burned tho stairs and cut off that means of escape. In 'order to save himself he was obliged to crawl through the window and Jump to the ground. The origin of the flre is unknown 'but it is thought it is tho work of Incendiaries. Just where it started is also a mystery for when discover ed every building on the place was blazing. It had gained such a, start that all efforts to check It were fruitless, and in a few hours aftor young Vaverchalk was awakened, the five buildings, including a largo barn and outbuildings, and the large house were reduced to ashes. Paul Vaverchalk and his son live alone on the property, tho former having purchased the farm about four years ago of James Ryan, in tending to establish a hotel there. Monday he went to Scranton and tho son, Paul Vaverchalk, was alono in the house. Tho place is located about a quarter of a mile from the Canaan Catholic church. There was no stock in tho barns when they were consumed. About ten tons of hay was destroyed be sides' all of the farming tools and implements and household furniture. Every building on the place, except a small outhouse was entirely con sumed and the loss will probably reach In the neighborhood of $3,000. Mr. Vaverchalk was in Honesdale "Wednesday and told a Citizen man that his loss would be considerable more than that amount.

Big Ben should be in every farmer's home You men who live on the farm have got to be heavy workers. And if you are heavy workers you require heavy sleep and lots of it. For heavy sleep is heavy work's reaction and it's not always easy for the heavy sleeper to get up without help, That's whero Big Ben comes in. He makes it easy every morning. Big Ben is a truth-telling and reliable alarm clock. He gets you up, he never fails. You're always up on the dot if n he's in the sleeping room. See him in my window next time you come to town. Hear him greet you Good Morning. He is well worth meeting, indeed.-" ROWLAND Quality Jeweler. Sells lots of Big Bens, STATE OFFICIALS RECOMMEND TO PAVE NOW. $17,000 Avnilnblo Which Will be Lost if Not Used This Year. Representatives Rlegol and Rounds of tho State Highway De partment were in Honesdale on Mon day afternpon in the interest of the Improvement of Main street. These gentlemen, together with President Martin Caufleld of tho town council, Burgess C. A. McCarty, Hon. E. B. Hardenbergh and J. D. Weston, chairman of the Street ana mgnway committee of the Creator Honesdale Board of Trade, met in tho latter's ofllce in the Durland-Weston Shoe company building to discuss road matters and arrange for a meeting of the borough council which will be held on Friday ovening of this week. Superintendent Rlegol presented a draft of Main street made from the survey taken a few weeks ago by the State corps. On it wero shown tho grade, width of street and other im portant data. In discussing the mat ter of paving Superintendent Rlegel told the borough officials that in or der to secure tho appropriation set aside for Honesdale that immediate action ought to be taken. There is at present about $17,000 available. Work could begin August 1st, said Superintendent Riegel, to be com pleted in three months' time. To ob tain this appropriation, Mr. Riegel emphasized the fact that the town council must avail themselves of the opportunity offered right now. Su perintendent Riegel estimated the cost of paving Main street from the State bridge to 4th street at about $50,000. Taking the amount avail able from the state, say $17,000, to which can bo added $8,000, the Street railways's proportion, leaves a balance of about $25,000 for tho cit izens and borough to pay. Allowing for incidentals, the borough's share or total bonded Indebtedness would be about $12,000. This amount will have to be secured before the State will do any work, or allow its ap propriation money to be used. The road will be divided Into six equal parts. Tho abutting property owners will be apportioned two sixths or one-third each of the cost of paving, the remaining two-sixths to be taken care of by the Borough of Honesdale and tho trolley road. The cause of the existing condi tions which provide for $G,000 avail able for the portion of Main street above the State bridge, if not taken up this year, would revert back to treasury; it was deemed advisable at this meeting by tho State authori ties as by the borough officials that the improvement should be extended from Fourth street north to the borough line. The road above the bridge, however, will not bo of brick, owing to Its cost, but probably of macadam. Superintendent Riegel's draft shows Main street below the State bridge as being 40 feet wide, except near the State bridge, where It will be about 50 feet. Concrete curbing win De usea. Parties desiring new service pipes for water or gas are renuested to have same laid before July 1st of mis year. EXCHANGE CLUB STILL LEADS IN THIRD OF SERIES.
