That was the last seen of the boys alive. At noon when they failed to re turn the parents became anxious and instituted a search fearing that something had happened.

Lured by the spectacular sights of the circus, a young man, whose name we are not permitted to use, follow ed the Young Buffalo Wild West from Mlddletown, N. Y., his home city, to Honesdale. .He is IS years of age and exceptionally bright. The mother of the young man came to Honesdale Sunday evening in hopes of finding her young son. She noti fied the authorities and on Monday morning Detective N. B. Spencer went to the show grounds at East Honesdale and Inquired for the boss showman. He asked him if he had secured any help from Mlddletown or Port Jervis and he replied that he had taken on one man. An Investi gation followed and the young man, from the description given by the mother, was picked out by Detective Spencer as being the runaway boy. Sheriff F. C. Kimble was also upon the grounds at the time and inter ceded for Detective Spencer. The young man, accompanied Mr. Spencer to Honesdale and the two went to the boarding house where the mother was stopping. Here big hearted Nick gave the young man a bit of fatherly advice, claiming that a young man who had the bright ca reer before him that he has ought to develop his talents. The young man told Nick that ho was an elec trician and had done some work along that line. The big and kind hearted detective reasoned with the Mlddletown youth and succeeded in getting him to give up the roaming life and settle down and make a mark in the world. When last seen by a detective and a Citizen repre sentative, the young man was accom panying his mother and little sister to tho show grounds to get his be longings and return to his home in the city. In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." POSTAL COXFESSIOX IX CIUSPELIi MURDER. A sensational turn to the Alice Crispell murder case of July 4 oc curred Friday when William Cris pell, father of the dead girl received what purports to be a postal card confession of the murder of the girl, but which the authorities are inclined to believe is either a hoax or the rav ings of an unsound mind which has been following the Harvey Lake tragedy. The postal card was dated last Tuesday and postmarked at New Ro chelle, N. Y. It read: "Bert is innocent. I killed Alice because of her love for him." "A. N." The county authorities have taken possession of the card and will make an investigation for fear that there might be something more than mere maniacal ravings behind the diS' patch of the card to the father of the dead girl.

It has been just one month today since the anti-free lunch law went into effect here and every one is agreed that there might as well not be any such law. Praotlcally every saloon in the city sells a pretty fair lunch for one cent. Others have placed slot ma chines near the eats, with placards calling attention to tho law and ask ing beer buyers to drop pennies in the slot if they get away with any of the food. In one downtown saloon, one of the biggest In town, an Inquisitive patron counted four cents in one of the pay-as-you-eat money boxes just after several hundred hungry and thirsty base ball fans, returning from a ball game, had eaten everything on the lunch counter. During the time the crowd was in the saloon, the at tendant behind the counter was busy elsewhere. In some of the saloons the proprie tors insist on the payment of the penny, but the customer gets a ticket which ho doesn't have to turn in at the lunch counter and which can be carried about and used as a sort of "rain check" ticket. Nobody has been arrested yet for swiping a few hot dogs and cheese. PALMER HEADS BUREAU OF FACTORY INSPECTION. Commissioner of Labor and Indus try John Price Jackson has announc ed the appointment of L. R. Palmer, of Pittsburg, as chief of the bureau of factory Inspection.

SCHOOL DISTRICT REPORTS SLOW. State Appropriation Will be Late This Year According to Speed of Officers in Making Reports. According to all accounts tho State appropriation to the school districts of Wayne county will be slow this year and the probabilities are that Wayne county will be tho last to re ceive state money for the carrying on of school work, if the school of ficers throughout the county do not get their reports, affidavits and certi ficates in very soon. County Super intendent of Schools J. J. Koehler stated Saturday that the school offi cers had been very slow this year in making their reports as com pared to other years. The appropri ation is paid to the school districts in the order in which the reports are filed at Harrisburg. It would be well, said Mr. Koehler, in speaking of the school officers, to attend to this matter immediately so that the State appropriation willnot be de layed, for If the reports So not go in until September the school money yui not be .received until about De cember or the first of next year. Tho following school districts have sent In full reports: Canaan, Da mascus, Dyberry, Hawley, Paupack, aaiem, acott, Texas and Oregon. Sev' eral other districts have sent in par tial reports.

HONESDALE TAKES FIRST OF SERIESFROM HAWLEY VISITORS PLAYED LOOSE GAME WHICH NETTED LOCALS ELEVEX RUXS. Hawley Was Shut Out by Loll's Su perb Pitching Only Two Hits .Made Oil' Him Locals Defeated Sunday by Score of 8 to I). The first game of the series with Hawley was played at this place on Saturday and it was so easy for the local boys to take it away from our down-the-river friends that it seem ed a shame. There was nothing to It at all. Ames was led out to face tho " heavy artillery " and before he was led away he had seven hits. McCloskey was the added starter and we made three more from him. The locals played a fine game from start to finish and every man on tho team gave a good account of himself. The work of Mangan and Brader was very fast and the fielding and pitching of Loll was of tho class A type, he allowing only three hits, one a very, very "scratchy" one. How we secured our eleven runs: In tho third Loll went out to Glf- ford, Brader walked and went to sec ond when Lilly sacrificed to Ed wards. Mangan singled, scoring Brader. Sandy singled and when Tarkett added another Mangan and Sandy scored. Weaver drove a safe one to left, scoring Tarkett. Faatz went down to Edwards. In the fourth Hessllng flew to Ed wards. Loll sent an easy one to Ames. Brader singled and went to third when Murphy missed the throw to catch Lilly at flrst. Mangan was again there with a hard single, scor ing Brader and Lilly. Bandy urove a double to woods and Mangan scor ed. Tarkett fanned. In the Hfth Weaver was out on a drive to Gifford. Faatz made single. "Pop" Hessllng, who by the way was out In his old-time form, singled and when Loll sent a-fast one to Mack, he threw wild and "Buck" scored, fol lowed by Hessling. Brader again walked. With Faatz running for Loll a double steal was affected and when Lilly sent a long fly to left Buck again scored and Brader came home on the wild throw of Mc Closkey to Kerrigan. Mangan was hit, stole second. Sandy flew out to Dougherty. That ended the scoring It was enough. Incidentally, that man Dougherty, in left field for Hawley, was in tho game, having five outs, one of them a pretty catch after a hard run. HAWLEY, AB. R.

The Honesdale boys went to Haw ley Sunday afternoon where they played the second game of the ser ies. The line-up for Honesdale on Saturday would have been a good match for any team In this part of tho State but in tho Hawley game on Sunday positions were changed and consequently they met defeat, Hawley took the second game by a score of 9 to 8. McCloskey pitched for the Hawleyltes while Vetter held down tho mound for tho locals. Tho batteries were McCloskey and Ker rlgan, for Hawley and Vetter and Jacobs for Honesdale. Loll and Sandercock went In tho game In the last half of the ninth. Neither ono of the pitchers received any support and the game was very badly played, In the eighth Inning McCloskey in terfered with Brader who was run ning tho base between first and sec ond and retired tho side. McCloskey was severely spiked but continued in tho game to the finish.

Cummins Far West" arrived here Sunday morning and was greeted by the usual large number of people that are always present on such oc casions. The question is asked, hat is there about a circus that makes otherwise perfectly normal persons leave their beds at daybreak and hurry down to the railroad side tracks to see the great caravan un load, wind and unwind, collect and separate, roll Itself up into one mass of apparent utter confusion only to unroll itself with consummate easo into an orderly line? At 10:30 o'clock the parade of the United Wild West, Hippodrome and Far East drew hundreds to the streets to see the unwonted sights of foreign and domestic wild animals with all the pomp and panoply of the characters of the wild and wooly west and the' deserts of the Far East wended its way through some of the principle streets of this city. It was about the most picturesque and un usual display ever given In connec tion with a tented exhibition in Honesdale. The tail end of the procession was followed by crowds of spectators to the show grounds at East Honesdale after which the showmen partook of their noon-day meal which Is also an interesting sight to see. Wonderful how so many people are fed when such a short time can bo given to preparations for breakfast and din ner after the show arrives. Tho afternoon performance com menced at 2:30 o'clock and like tho big street demonstration was fully up to, it not ueyonu, expectation. The evolutions of the 20 ox team, was truly wonderful, cowboys and cowgirls, Indians, Arabs, Cossacks were the headliners In daring horse manship. Annie Oakley, probably one of the best known women in tho world, gave her peerless wing and rifle shooting exhibition which was voted a big hit by the large audi ence in attendance and fully in ac cord with her world wide reputation. There were two elephant acts, the finest ever seen In Honesdale, both worked by women. Tiny Muggins, tho smallest of the elephants, can play some foot ball and acts as if he could give some of the college gladiators a good run for their money. A spectacular part of the program was the massing of the col ors in which 74 horses were ridden I representatives of all the peo es of the world carrying the vari ous national ensigns. The comedy numbers are prolific and many of them entirely original, one of the most ludicuous is the wedding of a pair of tenderfeet on the "Lone Star Ranch" and a chlvarl given them by the cowboys.' In this is intro duced the famous Taximeter arid the acrobatic horse, some marvelous roping exhibitions and the Bounding Hayrack. A second performance will be giv en this evening. In case of rain the audience will bo protected by a can vas covering. The arena, however, will be open. The Young Buffalo Wild West show has instituted a suit for $100,- 000 against the Buffalo Bill show, it Is claimed, for sending out alleged threatening letters for defamation of character. It is alleged that Buffalo Bill's show is in the hands of the sheriff. The 113 Indians, which were in the show, It is claimed, have returned to the reservation in South Dakota.
