Teachers' Institute TroRram Ono of
Most Expensive and Talent of Very
Best Secured by Superintendent J.
J. Kochler.
A most expensive and instructive
institute program has been arrang
ed by County Superintendent of
Schools J. J. Koehler for the teachers
of Wayne during the fall institute
which will be held on November 10
14. All the talent secured Is con
sidered tho best in their respective
lines of work lectures, entertainers
and instructors in school work.
The program of speakers and en
tertainers is given herewith but the
balance of the program will not
be made up until just prior to. the
opening, of the institute. It is ex
pected that the attendance this year
will far exceed that of any other
year as the program that has been
arranged will undoubtedly warrant.
Among the instructors in school
work will be Dr. 0. T. Corson, of
Columbus, Ohio, who will give aa
address on "General Pedagogy."
iProfessor F. A. Barbour, of Ipsa
lute, Mich., will talk on the subject,
"Literature and Grammar."
Professor J. T. Watkins, of Scran

The marriage of Joseph Scheie, of
Hawley, to Miss Mario Lovelace, of
Hawley, took place at the parsonage
of the German Lutheran church on
Saturday morning at half-past six
o'clock, Rev. C. C. Miller officiating.
Walter C. Spangenberg and Miss
Elma .R. Stockwell, of Gravity, were
married on August 20 at the parson
age of the Methodist Episcopal
church at South Canaan by Rev.
Jonas Underwood. The young
couple were attended by Mr. and
Mrs. Friend L. Williams and the
ring service was observed.
The local order of Junior Order of
American Mechanics won a Sears
runabout automobile in a number
contest conducted by tho Pittston or
der a few days ago. The local lodge
took seven numbers on the machine
which was practically new and their
number was the lucky one. At the
meeting of the order held in their
hall last Friday night a communica
tion from Pittston stated that an of
fer of $100 had been mado on the
machine. It was voted to accept the
offer of the money.
Under the cantlnn. "TTnvn AT.irripil
Each Other Eleven Times," a story
is being syndicated around the coun
try to newspapers telling of the nu
merous marriaees nf ATr. nnrl Mru .
Frank Vernon of Hagerstown, Md.
me arucio iouows:
"To be married to each other elev
en times since 1909 has been the
novel experience of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Vernon, who are at Braddock
Heights. The marriage ceremonies
have been performed 'in as many dif
ferent countries.
"Asked why he and his wife had
been married so often, Vernon said
it was a sort of a hobby with them
and they took the' step as a precau
tion because In some foreign coun
tries marriages performed in others
are not recognized.
Ho and his wife were first mar
ried in Columbus, O., in England,
Scotland, Wales, France, Germany,
Belgium and Russia in 19J1; in Syd
ney, Australia, in 1912, and In Vera
Cruz, Mexico, in 1913. They hold
marriage certificates of all these wed
dings and the display is unique."
The name of the couple reminds
the writer of a pair of roller skating
experts who were In Honesdalo July
4-8, Itj 1911. They were the Great
Vernons and advertised that a mar
riage ceremony would be performed
at one of tho exhibitions. They were
married by 'Squlro W. H. Ham at
tho Rink. Perhaps the Mr, and Mrs.
Frank Vernon mentioned above and
the expert roller skaters are one and
tho same.
Proararri Presented One of Best
on trie American
The Honesdale Chautauqua, which
has been looked forward to with
much pleasure and anticipation, is
here in all its glory. It brought edu
cational and entertaining features
and above all that which inspires.
The Chautauqua is a God-send to the
public at large and especially to the
people of Honesdale. Everybody
who has attended the afternoon and
evening sessions since last Thurs
day, the opening day, feel better, act
different and are praising the good
Bishop Vincent, the founder of Chau
tauqua, who by the hearty co-operation
of the Chautauqua Association
of Swarthmore and the guarantors in
Honesdale, made it possible for this
community to enjoy the best talent
on the American platform to-day. It
is safe to say that ifonesdale will be
stronger mentally, morally and
spiritually at the close of tho Chau
tauqua than it ever was before. All
hail to the Chautauqua.
Thursday's Program.
The Honesdale Chautauqua was
called to order last Thursday after
noon at 2:30 o'clock by Vice-Chairman
Wallace J. Barnes of the local
committee. After a brief address he
turned tho session over to Dr. E. A.
Turner, platform superintendent.
Tho doctor told how it became pos
sible that tho people of Honesdale
might have the privilege of enjoying
the Chautauqua, how the guarantors
pledged themselves to sell 700 tick
ets at $2 each, which is only about
seven cents for each entertainment.
Dr. Turner also told of the excellent
program which had been prepared,
of the best talent in music, science
and platform speakers. Dr. Turner
then introduced the Florentine band,
which entertained the large audience
with music, its like having never
been heard before in Honesdale.
Every number was enthusiastically
applauded which brought forth en
core after encore. Before the con
cert closed Dr. Turner presented
Miss Mellcent Melrose, of Boston.
She, .too,, was heartily applauded.
She possesses a ricll mellow voice.
The evening performance consisted
of an entertainment by this great
band. Miss' Melrose also sweetly
rendered a few solo selections.
Thursday's program closed, gratify
ing a largo and appreciative audience
Motion pictures were shown after the
musical program.
Dr. Turner spoke Thursday afte'r
n'oon, as did he also Friday and Sat
urday afternoon on a series lecture
on "Sociology."
No feature of the Chautauqua pro
gram has aroused more Interest or
been more appreciated than Dr.
Turner's lectures on Sociology. The
first afternoon he gave an outline up
on which the later lectures wero to
be based. He began by defining so
ciety as " An aggregate of related
units achieving certain ends by co
operation." Sociology was denned
as " A study of the phenomena
through which society achieves Its
ends." He further remarked that
sociology is constructive in its pur
pose and wholly altruistic in its
aims. The lecture on Friday dealt
with the problem of the city and the
country. After tracing the develop
ment of the rural community from
a pioneer condition of society, Dr.
Turner pointed out the characteris
tics of tho rural group as distin
guished from the city and then dis
cussed tho forces which tend to ob
scure the difference between the two.
Among these forces were mentioned
modern means of communication,
the department store, the rural high
school, and the raising of farming to
the dignity of a profession. In clos
ing, he considered brietly the rarm
er's boy and the hired man. The evi
dent purpose o? the lecturer was to
show that there Is a vital relation
between tho city and the country and
that the maintenance of the spirit of
country life is wholly to be desired.
Saturday's lecture had to do with
'Sociology and Social Custom.' It was
clearly shown that In this relation
no man can be a law unto himself.
Good citizenship Involves a proper
adjustment of every life to society,
business, politics and religion. The
straight edge which sociology ac
quires to all customs is " the public
welfare is tne supreme law." Re
gardless of purely moral considera
tions, such questions as polygamy,
slavery, and tho regulation of the
liquor traffic would bo taken up by
the sociologist and tested In view of
tho question whether they are social
ly .wholesome or pathological. The
dominant note of the lecture was
altruistic. It is to be regretted that
every adult citizen of our community
did not hear this attractive presenta
tion of a vitally important theme.
Friday Afternoon nnd Evening.
Despite the rain of Friday tho
mammoth tent was well crowded,
hardly a seat being vacant. This
pleased Dr. Turner and he stated
that he thought that Honesdale tru
ly had the Chautauqua spirit. At the
evening performance ho announced
that Honesdale turned out in larger
numbers on a rainy day than any
other town In which It had been his
privilege to attend this season.
The Tyrolean Alpine Yodlers fur-i
nished amusement and entertainment
to two large audiences. Their sing
ing was highly appreciated. Gus
Ochsner, tenor and champion Yod
ler, was certainly great. The Yodle
songs are altogether different from
American rag-time songs. The
songs have been handed down gener
ation after generation with a few
slight changes in them. Tyroleans
are natural born singers as was fully
demonstrated to the audience.
Every member was an artist. "The
Echo," rendered in the evening by
the entire company, Mrs. Grauss, tak
ing the echo part, was well received.
In Switzerland an acho is re-echoed
five to six times. Dr. TurifBr spoke
very instructively and entertainingly
in the afternoon on the subject of
" The iProblem of the City and the
Country," little comment on which
was made in a foregoing para
graph. Friday evening the program open
ed with a half hour concert by the
Alpine Yodlers, which was followed
by motion pictures, depicting Captain
Scott's trip to the South pole. It
was a wonderful film, presenting
some of the vicissitudes through
which the gallant young explorer and
his daring crew passed. After a few
moments' recess at which time the
children in the audience were allow
ed to pass out, Dr. Turner in a most
complimentary manner- presented Dr.
Frank Dixon, of Washington, D. C,
who held spell-bound the large audi
ence for an hour and half while he
gave a characteristic lecture upon
"An Outgrown Constitution." Dr.
Dixon told his interested hearers
that the people of this country had
outgrown tho constitution, or in oth
er words that for over one hundred
years they had been getting along
with a constitution that was a misfit,
but which was not noticed because
the people were so busy digging out
gold from our hills and from our
valjeys and from, our forests and our
streams that we 'did not' notice that
we had never worn the latest thing
in constitutions. Dr. Dixon claimed
that in ten years there would be a
change in tho management of affairs
in our government. He stated that
President Wilson was the best presi
dent ever to have been in the White
House and that he believed that he
would accomplish things while there.
He said the people did not want
Taft owing to his policies, but that
former President Taft placed five of
the nine Supreme Court judges on
the bench which In other words
would endorse the policies of the
president whom the people voted out
of ofTice. And these judges would
be on the Supreme Court bench un
til removed by the Great Judge. Dr.
Dixon said he believed in the recall
of judges and also the referendum.
Everywhere to-day the people are
quoting Dr. Frank "Dixon's lecture.
It was classical.
Saturday's Sessions.
.Saturday, like the two preceding
days, had In store for Chautauqua
goers pleasant surprises and whole
some treats. Dr. Turner continued
his excellent series-lecture upon
"Sociology and Social Customs," af
ter which the Brodbeck-Such Concert
company was presented. The com
pany consisted of Miss Viola Brod
beck. sonrano. of Philadelphia, and
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Such, of Eng
land, the former" as violinist and his
wife as pianist. The trio are stars
of the first magnitude and furnished
excellent music, both in song and
instrumental. Miss Brodbeck's bird
like notes were well taken, elating
her largo audience. The rendition
of the selections brought forth ap
plause. Mr. Such, who has played
in European courts, uses a violin
mado in 1765. In the words of Dr.
Turner there Is "none-Such" on the
American platform to-day. This
noted violinist played with ease
many difficult selections that Inspired
his listeners, touching the heart
strings of the soul in a manner that
words cannot explain. After each
selection Mr. Such received warm
and hearty applause.
IPaul M. Pearson, president of the
Chautauqua Association, followed the
concert and gave a ringing address
upon " The Joy of Living." He was
greeted with a Chautauqua sa
lute. It really made one
glad that. he wero living
after he heard the speaker. He
said so many good things. Fre3l
dent Pearson possesses a brllllaat
mind, Is witty and enjoys in mat
lng everybody happy. His presence
In the community has already been
felt. He might be termed a doctor,
as he prescribes a good laugh for
everybody. Mr. Pearson is one of
the many rays of light that is shining
forth from the Chautauqua plat
form. Ho Is a great lover of poetry.
Dr. (Pearson announced one of the
mottos ot tho Chautauqua Associa
tion to be a quotation from Oliver
Wendell Holmes:
"I have never deemed It sin to
gladden this vale ot sorrows with a
wholesome laugh." In developing

Mr. and Mrs. William Singer ob
served the fiftieth anniversary ot
their marriage at their home . In
Angels, Wayne county, last Wednes
day. The aged couple have spent
fifty years of happiness and last
Wednesday demonstrated that they
were still full of life and happiness.
Many beautiful'gifts were presented
to the couple.
A bountiful dinner was served and
was thoroughly enjoyed by a host of
friends. All day long the couple re
ceived congratulations and best
wishes for many years of happy life.
Those present were: Mr. and Mrs.
William Singer, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur
Singer, son Clarence and daughter
Mary, of Waymart; Mr. and Mrs.
Nelson Baker and daughters, Dora
and Florence, of Gouldsboro; Mrs.
Brown and daughter, Kathryn, of

grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Hcssling Was In Good Form, in Fact
the "Boys" Were in Old-Time
Shnpe In Good Condition For
Hawley Saturday.
The "jinx" has either joined the
Chautauqua or gone to Canada with
Harry K. Thaw, at any rate ho has
departed from the local base ball
diamond and left the bats of the lo
cal team loaded with timely, yea,
very timely, base hits, in fact ono of
the bats was loaded so heavily that
when "Duffer" Weaver swung on
one of Carpenter's fast ones in the
first game it sent the ball so far out
in left field that the left fielder had
to " take a pretty long walk," before
he recovered it, and by that time
Weaver was home. It was the first
home run of the year, and ono of the
longest if not the longest hits ever
made on the grounds.
But to begin at the beginning.
Honesdale defeated the strong For
est City team in a double header on
Saturday by better all around work
by the scores of C to 0 and 11 to 4.
The first game was by far the best,
The locals put up a good game be
hind our old reliable "Pop" Hess
llng, who twirled in his old-time
form, letting the Forest City sluggers
down with five hits in, tho first game
that he has pitched since July 12 th'
Guess that's going some? Wo will
have to hand it to "Pop" for ship
ping that "jinx" to Canada.,
. The first. game started so early
that the White Mills boys, Lily and
Loll, did not arrive until the third
Inning; Capt. Brader caught and
Tarkett played shortstop in the
meantime. The features of the game
were the timely home run of Weav
er's, which came in the second in
ning with one out and no doubt
helped a great deal in downing the
Forest City boys. "Buck" Faatz also
had two very timely hjts and a sacri
fice, out or four times up. Mangan
had a good day at third. We scored
two in the second inning, when Walk
er was passed, Faatz sacrificing him
to second, and Weaver hit his history-making
homo run, which re
minded us of the days of Jos. Demer,
We added another run in the third.
Brader was hit, took second on a
wild throw by Wolfert, and third on
Lily's scratch hit, and came home on
Mangan s sacrifice fly to deep center.
In the fifth the locals worked three
more over tho pan. Brader singled,
but was forced at second on Lily's
attempted sacrifice; W. Strattford
let Mangan's drive got away from
hlni, Lily tajdng second. Tarkett
flew out to W. Strattford, Walker
singled, scoring Lily, who took sec
ond on the throw in, and he with
Mangan, scored on a nice single by
Forest City tried three pitchers in
the second game, all of whom were
well received by the local lieavy ar
tillery. Carpenter, who pitched the
first game, finally had to go "to the
mound. Every man of the locals was
credited with at least ono hit, Man
gan leading with two two-gabbers,
and Lily, Tarkett and Schilling each
having two hits.
Honesdale scored ono In the first
Inning. Lily singled, took second
and third on wild pitches and came
home when W. Mlskel became
"peeved" and threw tho ball to cen
ter field.
Faatz started the second inning
with a nice three-bagger over the
center fielder's head, 'but was caught
napping at third. Weaver then
singled and stole second and third
and came home on Schilling's single.
In tho fourth Pitcher Carpenter,
with the aid of three errors, took a
ride In tho airship. Walker singled
nnd stole, Wolfert erred on Zohara's
poor throw of Weaver's grounder and
Walker scored. Kellay threw Schil
ling's drive to the bleachers, Weaver
scoring. Loll, Brader, Lily, Mangan
and Tarkett all hit safely, and Walk
er, up for the second time, sent one
through Joe Mlskel, 7 runs In . all
counting. Our last runs were scored
in the fifth. Brader walked. Man
gan hit for two bases. Tarkett slng
gled and Walker was safo when Wol
fert muffed MIskel's throw of his
liner, Brader and Mangan scoring.
George Sandercock is spending a
vacation in Elmlra. Lily was right
at home behind the bat, and Weaver
certainly showed that he could cover
first In fine style.
Buck Faatz continues his heavy
hitting and leads the team with an
average of .408. Tarkett is right af
ter him with an average ot .403.

A thrilling ride for the fireman bold,
And a joy. to the engineer.
Through farm and forest we thunder
And our light shines far ahead.
But "Look! O deary, the bridge Is
A wreck there'll be In the ghostly
And a train In the river's bed!"
He drops' the tools that he sought
to hold,
And his eyes grow wide with fear;
Ono leap; and he's safe, is the fire
man bold,
In the arms of the engineer.
It's many a year since the night ex
press Went thundering down to the bay;
And a bearded man In a soldier's
Is he who sprang to my quick caress
When tho bridge was washed
Yet I dream, as the winter nights
grow cold,
Of the nights of an elder year, '
When my four-year-old was the lire
man bold,
And I was tho engineer.
