Patrick J. McDonnell, libellant in
the case, was the first witness called.
He stated that they were married in
the fall of 1908 and lived at the
home of his mother-in-law about 17
months after their marriage. In
November, 1910, ho rented a house
on Terraco street, Carbondale, and
lived there from eight to ten months
until April, 1911. On April 3, I left
Carbondale and wo made an agree
ment. I wqs going to Pittston to
work and she was to store the furni
ture and go to live with my mother.
I went to Pittston and came back on
Friday of tho same week. She was
at her mother's and would not come
back with me. She told me that her
mother and brother would not let me
como there and that she would not
live with me. I had no work before
I went to Pittston. I turned over
to her $300 and all tho household
furniture. I always provided for her
but sometimes I did not get my pay.
I bought all the furniture and paid
for it. I went to Mayfleld and there
I wrote to her to come and live with
me. She did not answer. I went
from there to work In the washery of
the Wayne Coal company .near Pink
where I boarded. I wrote' again but
she did not answer. I wanted her to
come and live with me. The last let
ter I wrote was sent by registered
mall and I kept a copy of all tho let
ters. (The letter was offered in evi
dence.) I spoke to several people
near Pink for a place to live. I have
not seen her recently up to today
in court. I tried to speak to her but
she would not let me oven speak to
my boy. I would take her back to
live with me now if she would come.
On cross-examination by Mr. Bren
nan he said that he could not remem
ber the exact date of marriage other
than it was in the fall of 1908. On
being prompted he acknowledged
that It was on August 2G, 1908. He
married Teresa Collins and resided at
Carbondale with his mother-in-law,
Mrs. Collins, on Scott street. He
said that they had had one child but
he could not remember when it was
born, After the child was born Mrs.
Collins told me to get out. That was
two days after tho birth of tho boy.
Then I went to my home in Mayfleld.
I spent some time in Oneonta, N. Y.
I don't think I was there over two
months. I wrote to her from there.
When I camo back went to see her.
Met her on tho street and she would
not let me como to the house. When
I wrote to her from Pink and May
fleld I was advised to keep a copy
of the letter. It was on the advice
of counsel. I am living at Gravity
now. Am boarding with Mrs. Sheats
near there.

he was In business in Scranton and

said that McDonnell had boarded at
her home and that ho had always let
her see his letters. Sho had seen
the letters ho had written to his wife

Earl Rockwell, of Lake Ariel, tes
tified that he had known McDonnell
since September, 1911, when ho had
been working for the Wayne Coal
company at Pink. McDonnell had
been looking for a house to llvo in
and I found one for him. I told
him about it and ho said that his
letter had not been answered and
he thought that he would not need
tho house just then.
P. J. McDonnell was recalled and
testified that his wife would not
leave Carbondale and llvo with him
I could have worked In Carbondale

18 Months For Breaking Jail and $10
Fine; Not Less Than 5 Years for
Breaking Into tho Coal Offices at
August Stouquert, commonly
known as "Frenchy," who has been
a guest In tho county jail for several
months, who was caught after a long
chase near Hoadleys by Sheriff Kim
ble and Detective Spencer on tho
charge of breaking and entering,
was sentenced In open court Monday
afternoon by President Judge A. T.
Searle to serve a term of six years
and six months In the Eastern Pen
itentiary at Philadelphia and was
fined $110. He was also directed to
pay all costs of prosecution, but it
Is likely that Frenchy will escape
this last burden.
The sentence for attempting to
escape from the county jail at the
time Peter polt made his sensational
dash for liberty, was fixed at not less
than eighteen months or more than
two years and a fine of $10 and the
costs of prosecution.
For breaking and entering tho of
fices of tho Hawley Coal Company at
Hawley the sentence was flxed at not
less than five years or more than
ten years to begin at the expiration
of the flrst. Tho fine was for $100.
On the charge of breaking and enter
ing that Stouquert confessed to, sen
tence was suspended on the condi
tion that If he ever returned to
AVayne county at tho expiration of
the sentence imposed, and if thero
should bo any complaint made, the
court would impose sentence on that
charge at that time for a period of
not less than ten years.
Frenchy will probably make the
trip to Philadelphia In a few weeks.

Program Short and Interesting
School Song AVritten by Hones
dalo Young Man Class Comprises
2JJ Members.
The class night exercises of tho
Honesdale High school which wero
held on the school campus, was an
innovation which was heartily re
ceived by the public at large. Tho
occasion was unique to say the least.
A stage had been erected In front ot
Church street entrance to the school.
It was artistically decorated with
daisies, buttercups and ferns. The
trimming was In charge of the sopho
more class. A flag formed decora
tion for the background. The pro
gram opened with a concert by Jen
kins' boy band, after which tho
classes of the High school marched
headed by members of '13. The sen
iors took their respective places ,on
the platform, whilo the juniors,
sophomores and freshmen stood In
front of the stage. AVhilo standing,
the school sang "Far Beneath His
toric Irving," which was written by
Fred Menner, of this place. We
reproduce tho words of the song,
which follows:
Far beneath historic Irvine
With Its rocky crest,
Stands our noblo Alma Mater
In Its sheltering nest,
Down amid the busy humming
Of the bustling town,
ii nas gained tnrougn years ot tolling
Honor and renown.
Raise, tho chorus, speed It onward
ioud Its praises ling.
May recalling Honesdale High School
Thoughts most pleasant bring.
Hero tho clanging of the school bell,
Many years Its rung,
Startling stories It could tell you
With Its metal tongue.
Here the thrilling notes of gladness
As It rings each morn,
Ever joyful as we all are
That this school was born.
The program' was-very pleasing
and interesting, all members render
ing their respective numbers in a
most creditable manner. The jokes
about class members were witty and
to the point. Misses Florence
Brown and Mary Menner were In
charge of tho literary part. The
singing, under the leadership of Miss
Harriet Arnold, music teacher of the
school, showed considerable practice
and was rendered In a manner that
reflected much credit upon teacher
and pupils. Jenkins' Boy Band, in
the rendition of their several selec
tions, won laurels which a senior
musical organization would be proud
of. There were 27 pieces out. At
the close of the exercises Earl
Transue presented Janitor Hull with
a $5 gold piece as a token of remem
brance. During the exercises excellent pic
tures of the people assembled to at
tend tho program were taken by
Bodio and Romaine, photographers.
The members of class '13
banqueted at Mrs. William Briggs'
after the program and the following
excellent menu was served:
Saltlnea Olives
Shrimp Patties
Bread and Butter Sandwiches
Chicken Maryland Stylo
Creamed Potatoes French Peas
Fruit Salad
Strawberry Ice Bisque Cream
Fancy Cakes
A most pleasant time was enjoyed.
Outside of tho class, Prof, and Mrs.
H. A. Oday were Invited guests.
The many Honesdale friends of
Mrs. Arthur Lange, formerly Miss
Marlon Lane, of this place, will be

ernment of Coburg, Germany, offer
ed five prizes for a memorial to Mar
tin Luther and made it- a
national affair. Sculptor Lange's
subject for the memorial was "Faith
Is tho Light of My Life." The model
was not only accepted but a prize of
$500 was also given. Mr. and Mrs.
Lange, whose home Is in Dresden,

Luther lived in Coburg three months
In 1530 and It was thero that ho did
considerable writing. On an emin
