Go Down For Two Defeats Vct
ter's Slow Curve Got Them Going
Large Crowd Saw Game.
William Vetter was THE hero in
Honesdale on Saturday when the lo
cals defeated their ancient rivals
from Carbondalo by the scores of 11
to 2 and 1 to 0 in the ilrst double
header In one afternoon in the town's
.history. Vetter pitched the whole
eighteen innings, allowing but seven
lilts in the first game and but one
very scratchy hit in the second
game when Dondican beat out a bunt
to Slim Mangan. The fact that Sian
gan's arm is in bad condition gave
Dondican Ills hit, for with a good
arm behind the throw to first, Don
dican would never havo been safe.
It was laughable to see the "Min
ers" break their backs trying to kill
Vetter's slow benders, but usually
all they could do was lift a small
pop fly or send slow roller to the in
field. Tetter's pace during the whole
game was the same. He was about
as excited and as heated as a block
of ice, jio matter whether the bases
were full or not. He received good
support, especially in the second
game, the all around work of Capt.
Carbondale came here with the
intentions of capturing both
games of this double header and
thereby winning the series as they
were strengthened by two Jermyn
players of the County League, Mack
and Dondican, but they had not
counted on one William Vetter of
Vetter did not start the first game
as though he was going to make
any records, as Carbondale scored
in the second inning on an error by
Stevens and a hit by Craft. They
scored again in the third on two
solid two-base . wallops, but after
that Vetter had everything his own
way with the aid of rattling good
support from his team mates. Hones
dale made five runs in the third in
ning on three hits, a sacrifice, three
errors and a hit batsman. The whole
Carbondale team seemed to go
"ballooning" In this inning which
was McAndrew's last on the rubber.
We scored two more in the fourth
with Dondican pitching when Brad
er, Lily and Sandy hit in succession.
In the seventh three 'more crossed
the plate. Weaver hit for two bases
and Stevens and Larson singled and
Fee allowed a throw in from cen

For six innings In the second
game only three men In each inning

very creditable game, in the ninth

Watkins who again, by tossing to

not to play the Hawley management
informed the local management that
they would havo to cancel the game
up here for next Saturday and when
asked why, as their excuse said that
the first gamo of the series must be
played in Hawley. Manager Spencer
has informed Manager McDonald
that he didn't make the rain Sunday,
tnat he did not even order it. and
that he would expect them to stick
to their word and schedule and play
here next Saturday. We under

Many a merchant has been too
busy wondering what the parcel post
was going to do for his competitor,
the mail order house, to consider
that It might havo in it some good
for himself. Yet Instead of being a
bugbear, threatening destructive
competition, the parcel post in actu
ality broadens tremendously the
smaller merchant's field of trade
possibilities. It enables him to deal
with every person within fifty miles
of his place of business at a lower
postal rate and much more expedi
tiously than any concern outside his
district can. The moral is obvious:
Co In and win.

went over the proposed line of road.
They went to Moosic Lake over the

They feel that there are great possi

of the traction road were more in
favor of an extension that would
dodge Lake Ariel and take in the
towns in tho region above Moosic

ABUSE OF PRIVILEGE GATE IS
The short cut between East street
and East street extension, going
through the private property of At
torney C. A. Garratt, was closed to
the public on Friday last. What led
to the Immediate closing of the prop
erty was due to tho abuse of the
premises by young men, who have
no respect for friend or neighbor or
the privileges granted them. A
clique of boys bent on malicious mis
chief entered the yard of Mr. Gar
ratt on Wednesday evening and did
considerable damage to property.
People In going through tho yard
entered paths on either side of the
house, taking a V-shaped course.
This divided tho garden and cut up
the yard so that very little space was
left for the owner. It is too bad that
the public has to suffer owing to the
abuse of the privilege of a few row
dies. SEVEN-COUNTY CONVENTION.

Eight-Year-Old Son of Mr. and Mrs.

Died Sunday Afternoon.
Vaccination before Christmas is
said to have been the cause of the
death on Sunday afternoon at 3:15
o'clock of Leo Lawrence Herzog, son
of Mr. and Mrs. William Herzog, of
223 Terrace street. He had been ill
ever since the vaccine had been ap
plied and during the last six weeks
he had been confined to his bed.
Leo Lawrence Herzog was born on
February G, 1905, being eight years,
five months and fourteen days old at
the time of his premature death. He
is survived by his sorrowing parents
and the following brothers and sis
ters: Joseph, Frank, Florence, Marie,
Edward and Bernard, also by Sister
Bernetta, in a convent at St. Louis.
The funeral services will be held
from St. Mary Magdalen's church on
Wednesday morning, Dr. J. W. Balta.
It is stated that recently ..the Com
missioner of Fisheries ""'ordered 't
large proportion of the silver salmon
at the Bellefonto Hatchery to be
dumped into the Logan Branch Run,
a stream which has its source just
above the hatchery grounds and em
pties Into Spring Creek at Belle
fonto, which In turn empties into
Bald Eagle Creek at Milesburg and
that into the Susquehanna 'near
Lock Haven. This is the end, be
fore fruition of an Interesting and
Important experiment begun by the
former commissioner four years ago
at the suggestion of the United
States Fish Commission. A number
of years ago it was demonstrated
that if a sufficient number of eggs
could be obtained, it was possible to
establish the Atlantic Salmon in the
Delaware river. It was found, how
ever, impossible to secure any num
ber of eggs, first because tho supply
In the United States was limited and
second because the Dominion of Can
ada had a law which forbade the ex
porting of salmon eggs.
The Quinnat Salmon was then
tried, but failed to produce results,
because it was believed that the nat
ural spawning latitude of that fish
was too far north. A conference
was then held between Commissioner
Meehen and Commissioner Bowers
and Deputy Commissioner Smith of
the United States Bureau of Fisher
ies. The two later were equally In
terested with Commissioner Meehan
in tho establishment of salmon in the
Delaware. The result of the confer
ence was that the United States
agreed to forward annually for a
series of years of tho silver sal
mon, a fish which spawns about the
same latitude as the Atlantic salmon.
The first eggs were received four
years ago and Sent to tho Wayne
Hatchery at Pleasant Mount, Wayne
county. The Superintendent, Nath
an R. Duller, now Commissioner of
Fisheries, expressed much cnthusi
asm and faith in tho future of tho
Owing to the limited facilities for
rearing silver salmon at Wayne,
about eight thousand young fish
were sent to Bellefonte. These grew
wonderfully and exhibited Indica
tion of reaching maturity, which in
silver salmon Is four years In March.
About six thousand five hundred
reached the age of four years. It Is
a very curious fact that tho silver
salmon, when It reaches maturity
spawns once only, then dies. The
releasing of the fish in Logan Branch
therefor could do no permanent
good In the stream; and with their
release the chance of ascertaining
whether tho eggs taken from mature
fish in captivity was gone. They
would bo no good to the stream or to
the Susquehanna because those not
caught by anglers would die after
spawning, If they did spawn, and if
the eggs wore good and hatched they
could never reach maturity because
It has been proven that the Susque
hanna empties Into the Atlantic too
far south for the successful main
