The fun in Charley Grapewin'.s
"Sweethearts and Wives" which will
be one of the early attractions at the
Lyric, is created by an almost end
less series of misunderstandings. A
commercial traveller arrives home
during house-cleaning time and is
met by his wife whose jealousy has
been aroused by gossipy neighbors.
To make matters worse, he brings
home a suit case belonging to an
other traveller with the same initials,
in which his wife finds a woman's
apparel. It is here the fun starts
and continues until the final curtain.

The people of North Scranton
may well congratulate themselves
upon the great success of their Old
Home Week celebration held last
week. From the very start of the
preparations of the affair it has been
managed without a hitch of any con
sequence. From the initial meeting
there has been intense interest com
bined with harmony. Great good
judgment was shown in the selection
of managers and officers. There may
have been some heart burnings, but
in such cases it is Impossible to
please everybody. The decorations
and the hearty response of the peo
ple to every demand of them must
have been very pleasing to all the
officers from President Fox down'and
the reunion of the old Razorvillians

Many Inquiries relative to the
various features of the act relating
to the election of supervisors at the
fall election have been received
from all parts of the county that The
Citizen thinks it wise to explain the
situation. Two supervisors will be
chosen for each township this fall.
The officers who were elected in
1909 to 1910 will go out of office in
1913, according to the act, and these
are the vacancies that must be filled.
The two supervisors chosen this fall
will take office in January, 1914,
and will serve until mis nnri iflsn
The supervisors who were elected In
mil win nold over until 1915 and
when elected in the fall of that year
they will take office in 1916. Every
two years thereafter a supervisor
will be elected to serve for two
years. This fall one supervisor will
be elected for 4 years and one for 6
years. The petitions of supervisors
for nomination should indicate
whether the candidate wants the
four or six year term.

HOW EDITORS GET RICH.
(From the Lawrence (Kan.) World)
Herb Caveness, of the Chanute
Tribune, says that a great many per
sons have wondered how editors all
get rich so quickly and with such
small effort. One of them who has
grown rich has at last told the se
cret of it. He outlines it as follows:
"A nursery firm will send us a
25-cent rosebush for only $50 worth
"For running a six-inch advertise
ment for one year, we can get a
gross of pills.
"About one dozen firms are want
ing to give us shares in gold mines
"For $40 worth of advertising and
$25 cash we can own a bicycle. The
wheel sells for just $12.
"A fellow out West wants us to
run a lot of advertising for him for
nothing, and if it brings results he
may become a customer.
"For running $12 worth of locals
we can get two tickets admitting us
to a circus in a city and pay our
own fare on the railroad.
"A gun firm wants us to run $19
worth of advertising and then send
$10 in exchange for a shotgun. Such
a gun would retail at about $6.
"By running $50 worth of adver
tising and sending $25 to an Atlantic
City firm, we will be given a deed
to a lot. When the tide is in, the
lot stands six feet under water.
"When a man dies, the undertaker
gets from $75 to $150 to bury him
and tho editor gets nothing for pub
lishing the obituary notice."
CHURCHES AND SCHOOLS AVILL
OBSERVE TUBERCULOSIS DAY.
Churches, schools, labor unions.
fraternal orders and other organiza
tions to the number of 200,000 at
least will be asked to join the anti
tuberculosis workers of the country
in the observance of the Fourth Na
tional Tuberculosis Day, which has
been designated for December 7, ac
cording to an announcement Issued
to-day by tho National Association
for the Study and Prevention of
The movement will be furthered
throughout the country by more
than, 1,000 anti-tuberculosis societies
working through various state or
ganizations and The National Asso
ciation. Personal appeals will be
made to clergymen, school principals
ana leaders or various organizations
urging them to set aside a definite
time during the week preceding or
the week following December 7th,
ror a lecture on tuberculosis.
Last year over 60,000 churches
gave "attention "to this subject on
Tuberculosis Day. It is hopeful this
year to swell the number of churches
to 100, 0Q0 and to urge similar ac
tion besides in a largo number of
the schools and other societies. The
Tuberculosis Day Campaign will
come this year during the Red Cross
Christmas Seal sale. It Is planned
to urge the churches of the country
to take a definite part in this move
ment. The observance of Tuberculosis
Day was endorsed last year by Presi
dent Taft, Cardinal Farley, Col.
Roosevelt and many other prominent
churchmen and public officials.
Proclamations calling upon the peo
ple to observe this day were Issued
by governors of more than a dozen
states and by the mayors of a con
siderable number of cities.
