And never haul EIGHT'S standard

FTER a week's "vacation"
pitching hay, setting fence
posts, pulling on the hem
pen rope of a wire stretcher
until our hands wero blistered and
callous and felt like puff-balls, along
with other "vacation" stunts of a
similar character, it really seems
hard to catch hold of the newspaper
line where we let it drop when wo
began taking our "rest." To begin
all over again is about as hard as It
is to find the proper heading and
make the first start on a newspaper
article. We didn't head this article,
you will observe, because we
couldn't think what to call it.
For a little time let's talk about
Wo hadn't been in Hawley very
long on Tuesday morning before we
had a feeling come over us that we
were out at our Hoadley's home and
that the bees that have been loaf
ing around on the outside of their
hive all summer were beginning to
swarm. There was a buzzing in the
air that made us duck our chalky
locks. If anybody relishes being
stung that's all right; but excuse us,
Here is what caused us to hum a
bar or two of
"When the bees are in the hive
And the honey's in the comb":
"Hawley has commenced to
squeal. The Honesdale team
journeyed to Hawley on Sun
day, and of course did not play
on account of the rain. Immedi
ately after it was decided not to
play the Hawley management
informed the local management
that they would have to cancel
the game up here for next Sat
urday and when asked why, as
their excuse said that the first
game of the series must be
plyaed in Hawley. Manager
Spencer has Informed Manager
McDonald that he didn't make
the rain Sunday, that he did not
even order it, and that he would
expect them to play here next
Saturday. We understand that
the Hawleyltes have hired
three players from either Mil
ford or Port Jervis to help win
the Honesdale series. Why not
hire the Scranton State League
team again? It is closer to
home, and we don't believe
either Port Jervis or Milford
have anything that can beat us.
"Hawley defeated Milford at
Milford on Saturday. A brother
of Bill Steel, the St. Louis Na
tional pitcher, worked for Mil
ford." This choice bit of base ball
gossip was on the front page of the
last number of The Citizen, and,
judging from the sound of things
everybody in Hawley was reading
The Citizen, especially that part of
Say! It surely is hard to be an
orphan, to feel that you are stand
ing all alone! That Is how we felt.
Wo had that same old feeling come
over us that we had years and years
ago in the old district school days
when we snapped our linger to at
tract the teacher's attention and
"Please may I go out?"
Wanting to go somewhere so bad
ly led us right around to Hawley
base ball headquarters and Into the
presence of the manager of the
Hawley team and of a half dozen or
so of his helpers and friends. If a
fellow has to be killed, why not
walk right up to tho muzzles of the
guns and have the job done up quick
But, nobody was killed! And
say, when we got to talking with
that bunch of boys wo found them
royal good fellows, young men who
believe in a square deal and who,
along the lines of base ball, practice
what they preach. They are not
importing or hiring players, and, if
Hawley cannot win without resort
ing to unmanly tricks, then Hawley
will go down with honor.
This is the claim of the Hawley
boys: For the three previous years of
base ball strife between Honesdale
and Hawley tho opening game has
been played at tho county seat town.
The rain prevented the game on Sun
day last. It was called off and the
Hawley boys claim, (and who shall
say their claim is unjust?) that as
there was no game played It left the
series where It was at the beginning.
There is one suggestion tho writer
makes right here, and it Is this:
There is no more healthful, clean
or desirable athletic sport in the
world than base ball. It develops

the muscles tends to graceful bod
ily action, helps the nervous system
and increases the brain's power of
calculation. Just as long as the
game is kept on a clean and manly
basis, just that long will the public
stand by the boys; but when trick
ery, hoodlumlsm, foul language and
ungeutlemanly conduct are even
tolerated, then the public will let the
game and its players severely alone.
If the young men of Hawley, Hones
dale and White Mills cannot meet
on the field without showing traits
unworthy of young men of honor,
then it were far better to drop the
game entirely. Why tolerate that
destructive spirit of wanting your
favorite to win by any means, fair
or foul? Why not bo ready to cheer
a brilliant play when it is made by
tho "other fellows?" Such conduct
will fill the grandstand with specta
tors and draw more dollars from the
public than can be drawn by intense
desire to win the game fairly if pos
sible, unfairly if necessary.
Now, about that Milford incident.
Last Saturday 3 autos carried the
Hawley team, and 2 autos carried
Hawley fans to the shire town of
"little Pike," where the Hawley
team crossed bats with the Milford
boys. Milford is the home town of
Steele, the pitcher of the St. Louis
Nationals, and they have the same
love for him there Hint White Mills
has for Murphy and Honesdale has
for "Sherry." Last week Steele's
team was in Now York city and he
was visiting home nursing an injur
ed arm. Tho famous pitcher con
sented to pitch an exhibition game
for the Milford's. Notwithstanding
the advantage the Milford boys had
in having Steele do their pitching,
Hawley won, the score being G to 3.
Allen Gilpin,, of the Hawley team,
made a home run. Some idea of the
speed of Steele's pitching may be
appreciated when it is considered
that balls he threw rebounded from
the catcher's glove back to him.
The Hawley boys enjoyed the trip
and tho experience very much. The
return trip was made by one of the
cars in one hour and forty minutes.
The other cars lingered for a time at

There was much disappointment
in Hawley last Sunday among base
ball enthusiasts. A large number
came from Honesdale, and players
and fans marched over to the battle
ground full of anticipation of a hot
game. Then came the storm, the
postponement and the disappoint
ment. The series will open In Honesdale
on Saturday, and the return game
will be played In Hawley on Sunday
next. The Hawley boys are very en
thusiastic and there will be some

years ago was full of horrors to those
who went over It. It was so rough

ORANGE RUST OF BLACKBERRY.
At this time of year blackberry
bushes are liable to show many de
formed bright orange leaves. This
is the disease known as 'Orange Rust
for which there is no remedy, but
which spreads rapidly from tone
bush to another, A correspondent
recently sent to Prof. H. A. Surface,
Harrlsburg, samples of infected
leaves, and asked for information
concerning the treatment.
To this inquiry Professor Sur
face replied as follows:
" The disease which you sent us
Is the Orange Rust of the Blackberry.
This renders the plant quite con
spicuous by coloring the leaves
bright orange, and is one of the most
serious diseases of the Blackberry
p'ant. The spores, which are the
reproductive bodies, blow readily
from one plant to another, and it is
thus readily spread to other plants.
A peculiar feature Is that when any
part of a plant Is diseased It is per
manently affected. The only thing
to do is to watch for diseased plants,
and dig them out whenever seen.
Cut them out roots and all, and burn
them to prevent the spread of the
disease. A plant once affected in
this way can never recover, and con
sequently, the sooner it Is removed
the better it will be to keep the dis
ease from spreading to other plants."
