Give us, oh, give us, the man who
sings at his work. Be his occupation
what it may, he is equal to any of
those who follow the same pursuit
in silent sullenness. He does more
in the same time he will do It bet

"We want to show them that the
old wounds aro healed forever now
and that we are all brothers."
The "Bloody Angle" and the site
of Pickett's charge are the scenes of
thousands of individual reunions to
day mild-looking old men that one
can hardly associate with the one
time fiercest warriors on the globe
more fit even for the stress and
carnage of battle than the splendid
rugged regulars who are now their
care-tckers at Gettysburg.
History does not contain a parallel
for this wonderful, inspiring event
and in all probability its like will
never be known again.
The eyes of the universe are on
Gettysburg as they were in 18G3. All
honor to the men who won It and to
those equally gallant soldiers

AVHY WORRY IF PROPERTY
OWNER WANTS PAVE?
In the controversy of the pave
issue are a number of " I should
worry " people. They are worrying
because they live on streets other
than the streets that are to be pav
ed, providing the voters of Hones
dale support the Issue on JULY ii.
If the property owner on Main and
Park streets wants pave and Is will
ing to pave his proportion and de
sires Improvement, why in the name
of common sense should others wor
ry? The increased valuation to the
abutting property owner by paving
is no money out of the pocket of
the other fellow, but rather his prop
erty is also indirectly benefitted even
though he may live on the back
The people of Honesdale at large
are not public-spirited. Civic pride
outside of what the Improvement as
sociation is doing is slack. A num
ber of towns, many of them smaller
than Honesdale, are enjoying pave
streets. Why? Because the citizens
of these towns are wide-awake and
progressive. Many of them were
bonded to their limit and as a result
they aro today live and bustling
towns. The people discovered that
it was necessary for them to DO
something. The indebtedness was
an incentive to work and get out of
the rut and make their respective
town a place for the manufacturer,
to locate and the retired to live. If
other towns have had the spunk to
vote for an increased indebtedness,
which In many Instances were in the
hundred of thousands of dollars,
why is it not practical then for
Honesdale to vote to increase its in
debtedness only $14,000? It Is not
as though the town had to stand for
a largo amount, as undoubtedly
would be the case if it did not have
the proposition of State aid and trol
assistance. NOW is the
practical time to pave. Remember,
Honesdale people will vote on pave

hours of 7 a. m. and 7 p. m. at the
WHERE PENNSYLVANIA EXCELS.
Reports of investigations of Sing
Sing, most famous of New York's
criminal institutions, make sorry
reading. The prison is a disgrace
so much so that it is proposed to
abandon it altogether and begin all
over again somewhere else.
It Is a relief to turn from New
York to Pennsylvania. True, all of
our institutions are not up to date
and will not bear the glare of pene
trating Inquiry, but we are discov-
erlng how to do things. In the
State Hospital for the Criminal In
sane at Farview we are actually
leading the world in enlightened
management and methods.
Here is an institution that has
been built without a penny of graft
to begin with; that was started
largely as an experiment; that was
intended to deal with insane crimi-
nals;only; that has been in operation
or that portion of it which has
been erected, for it is to be extended
for only a few months, but which
in that short time has produced mar
The most violent of criminals aro
received at Farview. Frequently
they arrive in chains from padded
cells. But in this new and wonder
ful institution not a cell has been
provided. There are no straight
jackets, no manacles. Kindness,
good treatment, out-of-door life and
healthful employments and games
have revolutionized conditions; vio
lence and viclousness on the part of
the inmates are practically unknown,
while human beings have been made
out of heretofore handcuffed brutes.
Last Sunday a preliminary article
descriptive of life at Farview was
printed in the Philadelphia Inquirer,
It will be followed on Sunday next
and tho succeeding Sunday with
others. Those who read the first
one will not neglect the remaining
two. Those who did not will still
find in the descriptions to come not
only true stories of great interest,
but matters for serious thought. Tho
study of penology is a growing one
Ideas are changing and here in
Pennsylvania wo aro apparently
solving a problem that has ever
been a most intricate one.

I note that there are a lot of pa
pers calling themselves by the name
of Progressive, and what seems
strange to me is that they all seem
to bo pointing tnoir lingers at eacn
other, much after the manner of Rip
Van Wouter, who pointed his fing
ers In tho same way at his chlcken
eatlnc cat: and these papers all de
clare that they are the genuine Pro
gressives and their neighbors are
nothing but stick-in-the-muds.
There seems, also, to be more
than one kind of Progressiveness.
For Instance, in Scranton the man
who took the whole Towne for his
name, claims that his brand is the
only kind, while the other editor
whoso name is good Hudson river
Dutch for O. Tell says he voted the
Procressive ticket last fall, and be-
llves now just as he did then; but
the other crowd are pointing their
fingers at him and trying to make
him look and act as if he was a
hired man who had been caught
sucking eggs out in the barn be
hind the oat bin.
You will nardon me. I am sure,
for saying that this business reminds
me of my friend John Rathskaller,
who owns a farm up in the Katters-
klll Mountains, on which He nas a
SDlendld pippin orchard; and he
makes cider. His son, Peter, likes
to drink cider. So does John; but
John doesn't like to have Peter
drink too much; so he fixed it In this
manner: When he took his cider ap
ples to the mill and had them
ground and pressed, he put the juice
in barrels like this: He stood each
barrel on end and poured In 30 gal
lons. Then he marked that end with
his own name, and turned the bar
rel the other end up and put in lu
gallons, marking that end for his
son Peter. When he got the barrels
home he put a faucet in each end,
one for himself, one for Peter, and
rejoiced that he was so wise as to
regulate the appetite and capacity of
his precious son.
The Progressive subject all looks
alike to me, just the same as that
cider, I fear, all looked alike to
But I am not used to writing, and
it cramps my fingers. Maybe I will
write you again some time.

the world over and for all time to

fought so hard," was the reason as

Editor of Wayne County's Leading
I was in your town once Just
once. It was a hot day, I remem
ber, and as I and my friend Wash
ington Irving climbed through tho
laurels and around among the big
trees wo found ourselves on the big
ledge of rocks that hides the sun in
tho morning. I remember it was
hot, because wo stopped at the cold
spring on the way up and drank a
goblet or two of water apiece. It
was nice, and good and very cold.
Wo looked down on the new canal
-with its mud tinged banks; but wo
thought that canal was put there to
stay. You have got rid of it, I
notice. I note, also, that down
where wo had largo locks and weigh
ed the boats you have now built a
big shop where men manufacture
lifts. In fact, the whole place looks
strango to me. Having cut away
the trees and removed the under
brush It reminds me of an Incident
that occurred at my home in New
York when I met Peter Stuyvesant
on the street and didn't know who
he was, for the Peter I knew had
bushy whiskers, and this stranger
had a smooth face.
There are so many changes In tho
nlace that I think it better not to re.

Now that the parcel post is work

the government has decided to take
two further steps toward improving
and extending the system. One of
these is the collect on delivery feat
ure and the other Is the use of regu

Under the C. O. u. ruling, a mer
chant or any one elso can send ma

the new system and by securing a

from the addressee and return it.

The collection Is accomplished very
simply. The sender secures at the
window at the postofflce a perforat

by the recipient and on it a money
