AVIRES COXCERXING DISAP PEARANCE OF M. BLAUVILLE. Ran Into AVoods AVitli His Child Following Family Trouble. Had Not Been Living AA'ith AVife For Some Time. Driven to desperation over family troubles, Milton Blauville, a young man of Glen Eyre, Pike county, ran off into the woods on Tuesday night with his young child and has not been heard from since. It was at first thought that he had committed suicide but as young Blauville bears a good reputation in that neighbor hood the suicide theory is disproved. Mr. and Mrs. Blauville, who live near Glen Eyre, have not been living together for somo time. Mrs. Blau ville has been making her home with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacoby, who live a short distance from the B'auvlllo home. The cause of the breach in their domestic relations, is said to have been caused by the woman's parents. On Tuesday night Blauville heard that his wife was to leave for New York on the next day with the child. He went to the Jacoby home to see her and the babe. He was given the child to hold and as soon as he se cured the child he ran into tho woods. Mrs. Blauville said that she hadheard shots Immediately after and a search was made. No trace of the man or the child could be found. Friends of the young man think that he left for New York with his own child rather than have It in the care of his wife's parents. AVILSON AA'ARNS" "AMERICANS TO LEAVE MEXICO. Washington, Aug. 27. Another turn in the Mexican situation late tonight when Secretary of State Bryan Announced he had received from John Lind, the President's special en voy.a- summary of Huerta's last note to this government. As a result of this communication Mr. Bryan characterized tho situation as "encouraging." This statement by Mr. Bryan was regarded as significant. Up to this time ho had refused to commit him self on the Mexican situation beyond saying that it was unchanged. The fact that he was willing to announce that it was "encouraging ' led to the belief that Huerta has given some substantial ground for hope. Mr. Bryan declined to indicate in any way whether Huerta had made concessions or what was the basis of his encouragement.' The note, a summary of which was communicated to Mr. Bryan, was sent by special courier to Mr. Lind at Vera Cruz by President Huerta last night. President Wilson had waited anxiously for some word in regard to this note but when it failed to reach here by 1 o'clock in the after noon he felt .he could no longer post pone his address to Congress. At the same time tho American Empassy and all consular represen tatives throughout the Southern Re public were instructed "to notify all ofilcials, civil and military, in Mex ico" that they would bo held strictly responsible for harm or injury done to Americans or their property.

HONESDALE IS ASSURED OF CHAUTAUQUA NEXT YEAR Everybody Praised the Program LAST SESSION CLOSED AVEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH AHLE ADDRESS BY VM. T. ELLIS, LECTURER, TRAVELER AND WRITER JUDGE BEX LIXDSEY, JUDGE OF THE JUVEXILE COURT OF DENVER, PLEASED LARGE AU DIEXCE TUESDAY XIGHT EXTER- ' TAIXERS OF HIGHEST MERIT. The Chautauqua interest was man ifested as strongly on Monday as any day of the week. Dr. Turner again greeted a large audience who listen ed with the closest attention to his lecture upon The Family a Social Unit." He introduced his subject by stating that there are four rea sons for marriage, namely, beauty, love, purpose and business. The presence of children in the home was advocated by Dr. Turner. A child has done much to bring about har mony and concerted action between the parents. In punishment, Dr. Turner stated, there ought to be an agreement between father and moth er, that is, if a father corrects a child the mother should uphold him in dis cipline. The speaker believes that husband and wife should enjoy pros perity together and share in sym pathizing in sorrow. An illustration of the fidelity of this was shown in Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Strauss, who both sank with the Titantlc. This is a strong bond in the social unit. On the other side of the ocean the man asserts himself as being the head of the house. Sociology believes that that is better than no head or where the boy or girl is tho domineering force. ' The question of who a young man or woman should marry is one wor thy of consideration. It was ' the speaker's opinion that a young man would do better to go out of his own community to find a wife. Should a young man marry for money? Should ho be encouraged to marry his mother-in-law? Not by a license but "Take Mary take me." The ma jority of this kind of cases are un wholesome and unhappy. The young couple should start out in life alone. If in after years a home can be pro vided for tho loving father and ten der mother, well enough, but not at the beginning of the wedded life. Marry early. The speaker's advice to young people was to become home owners rather than tennants. He ad vised young couples to get in debt very early in life for what it is neces sary to have. A house is something you need, Don't buy what you don't need, for instance an automo bile. The present schedule of di vorce laws In the 48 states is a dis grace to the Union. By living in Ne vada a few weeks a man can dissolve the marriage bond between himself and wife. Women don't nag your husbands and husbands don't get the nagging habit. Often times men and women are nervously constituted and sooner or later become Dhvslcal wrecks. In tho world do your duty and more. To do only your duty is hard and cruel. To be happy you should give. Do your duty and a little more. It will bring to you unspeakable happiness. Dictrics and Rosnni Amuse. Following Dr. Turner's address Mr. and Mrs. DIetric entertained the audience for the remainder of the aiiernoon. jur. uietnc was very ciover in perrorming ins magic tricks, which greatly pleased the little folks and grown people as well. Rosani, the Prince of Jugglers, by his won derful juggling acts, demonstrated to the audience that ho Is what his name implies. Ho did a number of astounding feats in balancing. He was one of the star attractions of the Chautauqua. AVllliam Sterling Battis. William Sterling Battis imperson ated the characters In a number of Charles Dickens' writings with great aptitude. Mr. Battis represented the following characters: "Bill Sykes ' from Oliver Twist; "Sidney Carlton" from "A Tale of Two Cities"; "Sam Welier" from Pickwick Papers; "Uriah Hepp, rrom David Copper- neld; "Captain Cuttle" from Dom- bey and Son; "Mr. Pecksmlth" from Martin Chuzzlewlt, and many oth ers. Mr. uattis mado up his charac ters on the platform before his audi ence. Tho evening program closed with motion pictures. Tuesday Gain Day for Children. The coming of Judge Ben B, Lind soy, of Juvenile court, Denver, Colo., to Honesdale on Tuesday gladdened more than one boy's and girl's heart. "The Friend of the Children" as he is well and favorably known, was K. of C. Charms and Buttons A very plentiful variety at very reasonable prices. See them in our window. Rowland QUALITY JEWELER Opp. New P. O. scheduled to arrive in Honesdale at 10:15 from Farview where he stop ped for a short time on his way here from Carbondale. At 10 o'clock about fifty children headed by a juvenile fife and drum corps, (but instead of fifes, horns were used) marched down Main street from the Chautauqua tent to Central Park. The children carried the stars and stripes at the head of the procession, while placards, bearing the words, "Hurrah for Ben, the Children's Friend," "Vote for Ben," and other banners were held aloft by the lit tle admirers of this great jurist. Miss Foster, who had charge of tho Junior Chautauqua, and Mr. AVard accompanied the procession. Judge LIndsey upon his arrival was given a hearty welcome by the children t6 which he responded in his most gen tle and characteristic manner. After a short address by Judge Lindsey the little company disbanded, all children going to their respective homes with lighter hearts and a feeling of sat isfaction like they had not experi enced in some time. Tu6sdny Afternoon. The first session was opened by Dr. Turner who gave a masterful lecture upon "Sociology and Educa tion." He said in part: "If America is not democratic in the true sense in her system of gov ernment, she .is democratic in her schools. Education was defined as the maintenance of social units in their normal relationships. Certain defects of the educational system were graphically pointed out. The speaker emphasized particular ly the large number of incompetent teachers to be found in tlie profes sion. He attributed this situation to the prevalent practice of making school teaching a stepping stone to one's ultimate vocation. The prime responsibility for this situation, however, was said to be the par simonious policy of the average school board. It was affirmed that teifthers wero more Inadequately paid than any other class of profes sional men and women. A salary which is paid for nine months must be made to cover twelve because the vacation period must be given large ly to more thorough preparation for the work which the teacher is expected to do. It is fortunate that taxpayers are willing to contribute generously for courses of Instruction in scientific farming, the protection of animals and trees, and a large yield of grain, but this expenditure ought not to reduce expenditures made in behalf of the children of the community who compose Its most valuable as set. The scientific courses of study, especially the abuse of electlves, the inadequate provision for urban pu pils, and the lack of unity in the American system as a whole were characterized as serious defects. The speaker suggested as a means of .remedying these conditions; First, the exaltation of the individual in education; second, the promotion of thinking; third, due attention to tho relation between results and pro cesses. Whllo praising measures re cently proposed in support of con servation, such as tho protection of water supply, the care of forests, and government supervision of food supply, the. lecturer emphasized the fact that tho greatest conservation problem before the American citi zen to-day is the sane, well-considered and purposeful training of the boys and girls who must In a few years assume the duties of lead ership and service. At the closo of the speaker's ad dress the "Niagara Male Quartette", furnished excellent music in solos, quartottes, piano soles, etc. The young men were heartily encored. Evening Session. Ono of the largest audiences ever to sit beneath the Chautauqua tent assembled Tuesday evening to greet Judge Ben B. Lindsey, of Denver, Colorado. At 7:30 the Niagara Male Quartette, attired in the Seventeenth century costume, entertained for a half hour. At 7:15 Jenkln's Boy Band and Honesdale Troop of Boy Scouts assembled at the Allen House to escort Judge Lindsey, Burgess Mc carty and Prothonotary W. J. Barnes to .the tent. Judge Lindsey, by the way, is a director in the National Boy Scout movement. At tho close of this treat, Dr. Turner, platform superintendent. Judge Ben B. Lind sey, Burgess C. A. McCarty and W. J. Barnes, vice-chairman of the Honesdale Chautauqua, took their respective places on the platform bo: fore the audience. They wero given! a hearty ovation. Dr. Turner first presented Mr. Barnes, who thanked the public for their responso which Insured mak ing the Chautauqua the success which it has proven to be. He thank ed tho chairman of tho various com mittees for discharging tholr re spective duties in so efficient a man ner and stated that Honesdale is now ready for the Chautauqua next year.

CHILDREN TURN OUT TO REAR JUDGE LINDSEY SPOKE TO JUNIOR CHAUTAUQUA FKO.A1 COURT HOUSE STEPS TUESDAY MORNING. He Tells of the AVork Done in Den ver For the Good of tho Children How the Juvenile Court Move ment Has Grown. A large crowd greeted Judge Ben B. Lindsey, of Denver, Colorado, on his arrival in Honesdale Tuesday morning via automobile. The party arrived here about ten-fifteen o'clock and Judge Lindsey registered at the Allen House. He was then escorted to the Court House where the large crowd awaited him. The Junior Chautauqua under the direction of Miss Foster gathered at the foot of the steps leading into the building. The crowd scattered over the lawn in front of tho court house expectantly as Juvenile Court Judge of Denver arose to speak. On the steps back of the speaker wero Dr. Turner of the Chautauqua Association, and sev eral members of the local committee. Judge Lindsey spoke mainly to tho children whom he told of the many tilings the city of Denver had done for tho children. He told how he had upheld boys that were brought before him for swimming in the pub lic fountains. He said that as long as tho city did not furnish public bathing places for the boys he would not punish any of them. The result was that public bathing places were built for the children of that city. For many years Judge Lindsey has fought the gang and political crooks of Colorado single handed. Last spring when he was a candidate for re-election he was elected by a ma jority or zt.uuu. This rail he was elected by a majority of 35,000. Judge Lindsey told of the neces sity of having public baths, play grounds, Boy Scout clubs and van ous other forms of amusement for tho children, so as to afford them the proper kind of amusement. This, he said, would be an added step in the right direction, as It would tend to tho development of more healthful and bright young citizens. " AVe givo the children justice out in Denver," said Judge Lindsey, "for we know that they are not wholly to blame for the so-called crime. I try to be the children's friend for I know that the children aro my friends." Judge Lindsey spoke at the Chau tauqua In Carbondale Monday even ing pnd on the way to Honesdale ho stopped off at Farview to Inspect our hospital for the criminal insane. That evening the Boy Scouts accom panied by Jenkins' Boy Band met Judge Lindsey at the Allen House and conducted him to the Chautau qua tent. JUDGE LINDSEY TALKS DISCOVERY OF Wi Al REGALLSjNlJiAN STORY THREE FOOT A'EIX OF LEAD ORE THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN UN COVERED IX LAKE TWP. Large Chunk of Metal Brought To Surface on AVilliam Swingle's Farm Near Lake Ariel AAlien Boring n Well. The discovery of a three-foot vein of ore beneath the surface of land owned by William S,wlngle, who l'ves about a mile north of Lako Ariel, In Lake township, one day last week, caused no little excitement among the people living in this vi cinity. The vein appears to be a good one and from the appearance of the metal it is judged to be lead ore. The vein runs parallel to a ledge of rock and lies on top of tho rock. By the size and appearance of the specimen that was brought to the surface it is thought that a rich deposit of lead ore lies there. For a a long time it has been tho general supposition that copper and lead ore existed in parts of AVayne county but up to this time no evidence of a vein had been uncovered. The Swingle farm lies in rather hilly country this side of the village of Lake Ariel. The discovery of the vein of what is supposed to be lead ore by Mr. Swingle came as a surprise. Ho had been engaged in boring a well on his place and last Friday after hoisting the loose dirt and clay from the hole he found a large piece of metal. The piece gave evidence of having been cut away from a larger formation and was about three feet in thickness. The metal was soft enough for the drill to cut through and it lav on ton nf a rnck formation It is not known just how far be neath the surface tho. vein was en countered. Samples of the ore tend to prove that tho find is a valuable one, but Mr. Swingle in all probabil ity will send the ore specimens to the assay office at Washington for examination. The finding of what is supposed to be a lead deposit in Lake town ship recalls to mind a story that has been handed down for many gener atons concerning the existence of lead ore. The story originated with the Indians and appears to have been about the time of the Revolu tonary war. Old residents state for a fact that the Indians who roamed the lands at that time knew of the existence of lead ore and for some unknown . reason concealed the knowledge from the white settlers after their advent into that region. It was only by accident, so It Is stated, that its existence became known to the settlers and then after finding the mine they were no long er able to locate It. The Indian mind was subtle and evidently knowing that lead was used for the making of bullets for their muskets, also realized that It was better to keep the location of the mine a secret. An old resident of that locality relates that when his father was a young man and the valley was yet the home of the red man, he and another man brought up the. subject of the existence of lead while con versing with a friendly native. The old Indian said that the story was true but refused to tell them where it could be found. After some per suasion the Indian consented to lead them to the mine and secure for them a small quantity of the ore If they would allow themselves to be blindfolded. The men submitted and the Indian led the way through the forest, winding in and out as he did so, so that a trail could not bo followed. In due time tho bandages were taken from their eyes and they beheld a largo flat stone lying be fore them. They wero in an open space in tho forest. Tho stone was removed, revealing a hole Into the earth. Tho old Indian bade the men descend into the hole and take what they wanted. They took tholr axes and chopped away from what ap peared to bo an endless supply of lead. Taking as much as they could carry, they were again blindfolded and led away. They tried to mark the trail by breaking off twigs from the shrubbery and trees but in mak ing an attempt to find the spot in the midst of tho forest a second time they failed. The trail had been lost. Many times people have searched for this lead mine and failed and tho story as It Is handed down from generation to generation loses none of Its mystery and leaves the present day people of that region still won dering whether or not there ever was such a mine. Perhaps Mr. Swingle has stumbled onto an end of the vein. AVho knows? FROM COURT HOUSE STEPS.
