HE starting of anything is, in
nearly all cases, the hard
est part of the task; and
that Is the case with news
paper articles. Oftentimes
It reauires more time to choose an
appropriate heading than It does to
write ine article, tsui we are start
ed for this week, and now we are off.
"Is lie Guying Us? Ahem!"
Think a Bit! Make a Mem.
Our wise and good-natured con
temporary, the Times, quoted a bit
from The Citizen's "Down Hawley
Way" department last week, and the
one who imposes that part of the
leading nowspaper of Wayne county
on the public is puzzled, for ho
doesn't know whether what was
handed to him was a lemon or a
peach. Here Is tho "hand-out," and
now, dear reader, how would you
Is Ho Guying Us? Ahem!
In the weekly humorous (?)
column of the Honesdale Citizen
of last Friday, we And one of
the richest jokes which has
come to our notice from the pen
of Frank P. Woodward. With
the proposed trolley road as Its
subject, the articlo was in part
as follows: " Right here in
Hawley 1 everybody is taking
about tho new trolley road. Of
course everybody wants to en
joy a rldo over the new olectric
thoroughfare, and every last one
of them would like to take that
rldo quicker than instantly. I
advise everybody to be patient,
to save some of their show mon
ey for the new trolley sensa
tion, and to rest assured of one
thing for a certainty, and that is
this: Before election day rolls
around the road will bo built
and Honesdale ladles can have
every opportunity of visiting
(Hawley and incidentally of do
ing a little shopping with Haw
ley merchants, stopping at the
White Mills stores on their way
home to completo their pur
chases, and then get a car for
home in time, to get supper
ready for "the old man" of tho
house. Ahem! "
Tho writer Is glad there is some
question in the Times editor's mind
as to the humorous part of his writ
ing. Ho certainly never Intended to
pose as a Great American Humorist.
Ho trios to make a department that
people will like to read, and ho be
lieves that ho Is in some measure
succeeding. Ho also tries to be fair.
But now, let's get down to "glue
and brass tacks." What prompted
that articlo was the question that
was put to the writer hereof Will
the new road benefit, or harm, the
town of Hawley? Will it lead trade
away from our merchants?
That depends on two things, the
merchants of Hawley and their ad
vertising. There are some fine
stores in Hawley, stores where you
can obtain almost everything desir
able; but one may have a splendid
stock of goods and his prices may be
right, and he may not get the proper
amount of trade because ho doesn't
tell tho public about it. This is the
age of publicity. There is a whole
lot of truth in the jingle that runs
"He who has a thing to sell
And goes and whispers it down a well
Isn't half so apt to collar the dollars
As he who climbs a tree and hollers."
There is no joko and no "guy"
about the idea of Honesdale people
to some extent buying goods in Haw
ley, just tho same as Hawley people
to some extent buy goods in Hones
dale, and Honesdale people to some
extent buy goods in Scranton. But,
when the trolley comes merchants In
both of these towns, also in White
Mills, will have to count In their
business methods tho asset of pub
llclty, and they will have to consider

it in the proper line as an asset, a
real investment, not an expense, a
charity, or a waste of money.
As a matter of fact, iHawley does
not do enough advertising. It needs
a good nctivo Board of Trade. Tho
town has a whole lot of advantages
that the public should bo told about.
Hawley is right at the dawn of a'
great and wonderful awakening. Her
citizens and merchants need have no
fear of the future; but they will need
to arise and stretch themselves and
shake off the lethargy that is born of
slumber. As to publicity, it is a
pretty good tip to watch tho banks.
They are not throwing away the
money they are handling; and yet,
they find that it is expedient and
profitable to advertise. TAKE A TIP
FROM THE HANKS.
In tho meantime, coming back to
the point whore we started, we hand
back the question to the Times
Are you guying us?
Exciting Gnmc of Base Ball
Between Hawley and Arid.
(Reported for The Citizen.)
The Erlo operators last Monday
tried their wit at base ball. The
game took place at Lake Ariel and
proved to be a very exciting affair.
Of course, like in every ball game,
there had to bo two sides, conse
quently tho Operators east of Lake
Ariel were known as tho East Pound
ers and those west world come when
called Ham. Manager Buddcnhagcn
of the latter team, who is starring
this season in the Clover league,
showed his ability for judging ball
players when ho used the Turner
Bros, of the same league to work for
him, and when he sent in Despatcher
Wallace to play the short field, and
the McSheohan Twins to guard first
and third bases.
Tho selection of tho Pounders was
loft to a fellow by tho name of Cur
ran, and although his judgment was
not to be classed with the opposing
manager, for selecting players, ho got
together the following: Johnson,
Hill, Neary, Qulnlin, Gonser and a
few others, whoso names are familiar
in the base ball world. .
Tho game progressed in an agree
able manner until Hill, after hitting
the ball, hopped around on one foot,
the result of turning on his ankle.
He had to retire from tho game and
his shoes were filled by Hazlett, an
other Clover leaguer. Smith did
mound duty for the Pounders, and
Tresslar played behind the batter.
Guy Relph, the Erie detective, came
in good when he settled a wrangle
about tho eligibility of some of the
Despatcher Wallace was the lead-
off man for tho Hams. He asked
sender Tressler for good Morse.
Wallace then sent a slow order to
shortstop Curran, who then sent it
to first baseman Neary, but the Morse
was bad and he didn't get it. This
was the beginning of four runs. Tho
Pounders likewise started off in
great style and they secured three in
the first session. The pastime had
to be called in the seventh, the score
being tie, 0 to 9. Tho game was a
succession of misplays, wild heaves,
and heavy wallops. But the boys
should be encouraged in tho good
work and no doubt through practice
they will arrive at tho point whero
they will make Ty Cobb, Speaker and
Christy Mathewson look like thirty
Action of Surveyors Awaited
' cemetery Purchasing Committee.
The purchase of tho new lot of land
for cemetery purposes by tho congre
gation of St. Phllomena's Catholic
church has been delayed because
there is an uncertainty about tho
boundary lines. Tho entire section,
inciuuing tne Handsome pine grove,
will have to be surveyed before tho
transfer can bo effected.
There Was a Flro in
Tho Pines Lust Week.
Fire In Hawley's nine forest last
week for a time threatened to do
considerable damage A force of
men was hastily summoned and tho
lire was extinguished before It had
a chance to get under full headwav.
Hawley people must never allow flro
to sweep through those pines.
There Will ho Base Ball
On Saturday Afternoon.
un Saturday afternoon at 3:30 a
picked team from Scranton, under
King" Kelly's direction, will cross
bats with tho Hawley team under
the captaincy of F. H. McDonald. It
is anticipated that one of the hottest
games of he season will bo played.
Charles Rose Has a Very
On Saturday last Charles Rose
met with a decidedly painful acci
dent. He went down Into his cellar
after a barrel. In the darkness he
stepped on a rusty nail or splko that
pierceu tne liesh to tho depth of
about an Inch. Dr. Lobb was sum
moned who cauterized the wound
and gave it every attention that mod
ern skill and knowledge suggest. Tho
wound was a very nainful ono. Mr.
Rose is doing as well at this writing
as coum do expected.

Some Whopping Big Pickerel
Aro Now Being Caught.
They do say that It has been out
of tho question to hire a boat on any
of tho lakes near Ilavley, for days
ago they were engaged to the extent
that for sevoral weeks to come they
are all woken for.
The most popular plckereliflshlng j
place that Hawley peoplo know'about
is Peck's Pond, 20 miles from this
place, In Pike county. Tho pond is
made by damming tho channel of a
stream. Tho overflow is quite exten
sive, and there is considerable
marsh along the shores. Weeds
and water vegetation are , ,-ollflc,
and they make an ideal jr ce for
pickerel to spawn, and - tch out
and protect their' young, ,'wo Haw
leyites, Rhlnehard Warg and Dr.
Volgt own a stone cottage at tho
pond, and they but the writer
doesn't know anything about that,
after all. That's their business. The
pond is far away from civilization,
but there is a good road leading to it.
Yes, thero are all the rattlesnakes
you might care to run across out
that way, also.
On Monday of this week Oliver
Eck went out after pickerel, and he
got what ho went after. His string
contained 34 and they ran all the
way from 2 to 3 pounds each. Oh,
yes, I suppose there were a few, just
a few, that were under 2 pounds.

Properties in all parts of the town,
especially on Main street, are being

The Boys' Band Ball
Was a Thumping Success.
When the boys gave their band
concert on the corner of Keystone
and Main streets last Friday night
previous to tho opening of their first
ball, all Hawley just sat right up
and took notice. Why, the boys
played like old veterans. Everybody
said their playing was fine. And
just think of it, please, some of
those never knew what a note in mu
sic was previous to the day band
master Myers took them In charge.
iHawley citizens patronized them
liberally and donated many things to
help along the cause. AVhen the
"trouble" was over and things began
to settle down it was found that the
band had about $80 to the eood.
This will be banked and added to un
til enough has been secured to pro
cure as dandy a lot of uniforms as
tailors can produce.
Oh, by the way, boys, don't get too
good a grade of uniform, after all:
for you'll want some more togs along
mat line a little later on. It would
never do to wear the boy clothes
when tho legs and arms and waists
or the present wearers have grown
longer and larger. Even uniforms
nave their disadvantages at times.

A PETRIFIED WATERFALL
Algeria's Stone Cataract Is Called "the
Bath of the Damned."
With nil tho beauty of a cataract of
living water there Is In Algeria a re
markable petrified wnterfull which re
cently has been engaging the attention
of scientists. This is tho Uammam
Meskhutin, which moans "the bath of
tho damned," nnd It is located sixty-two
miles from Constantlne, on tho slto of
tho ancient town of Clrta.
This solidified cascade Is the produc
tion of calcareous deposits from sul
phurous and ferruginous mineral
springs, Issuing from tho depths of tho
earth at a temperature of 05 degrees O.
"Tho bath of tho damned," even from
a near viowpolnt, looks for all tho
world llko a great wall of water dash
ing into a swirling pool at its foot, yet
its gleaming, graceful curves and tho
apparently swirling eddies at Its base
are as fixed and immovable as If carv
ed from the face of a granite cliff.
Many centuries have, of course, gono
to tho making of tho deposits, and tho
springs were well known to tho ancient
Romans. Tho name nammam-Mesk
hutln was given to tho stono cataract
in nn allusion to tho legend that the
waterfall was petrified by Allah, pun
ishing tho Impiety of unbelievers by
turning all tho members of a trlbo into
stone. At night, so tho story runs, its
stone dwellers of tho remote past are
freed from their strange fetters, come
to life and resume their normal shapes.
