The hunter bold has seized his gun
And fastened up his dogs,
His good wife, too, Is on the run
With hens, and cows, and hogs;
She'll later chop the kindling wood,
Do other manlike labor,
And also stay alone at night,
Though far from friend or neigh
bor, At night she'll rock her babe to
With fear-strained ears her vigil
And- while It, sighing, to her clings
She rocks, and rocks and softly
"By a baby Bunting
Papa's gone a-hunting,
To get a little rabbit skin
To wrap up baby Bunting in."
HE season for
opene.d o n
M o n day,
N o v e mber
10, and Haw
ley seems to
cha r m e d
realm of big
has brought its quota of hunters.
They have come from Scranton, from
Carbondale, from Honesdale, from
New York city, from all points of
the compass, and the wildwood re
gions of Pike county is already fair
ly alive with men armed with rifles.
If all of them return alive it will be
a miracle, for bullets are flying in all
directions, and it must not be forgot
ten that a modern rife will Are a
bullet with such force that it would
kill a man at the distance of a mile.
Hunters after deer are pretty well
taped with restrictions this season,
and it takes a braver man to go deer
hunting than it would to enlist in the
regular army. Here are a few rules
and "don'ts" that hunters are oblig
ed to observe:
Utiles for Hunting Deer.
f Nov. 10 to 25, inclusive, open -f
-f season. -f
-f One deer to a hunter is limit, -f
-f Male deer only may be shot,
-f Deer killed must have horns 4--f
2 inches above the hair.
Deer must not be taken in
lake or stream.
Can't use dogs to hunt deer.
Dogs not permitted around
Buckshot must not be used. -f
No gun allowed that propells
more than one pellet at a -f
Hunters may not hire other -f
Illegal to sell any part of -f
deer's carcass. -f
By the time the ambitious deer
hunter has committed all of these
rules to memory, and is satisfied
that he is willing to abide by them,
the probability is that 'he will do his
deer hunting on his own premises,
down back of the barn where the
Hawley Profits From Hunters.
A well known merchant said to
the writer that the trade brought to
the town by hunters was of consid
erable Importance. Theoretically
hunters golnto the wilderness and
live on what they secure as trophies
of gun. As a matter of unromantic
fact the hunters' camp is stocked
with food stuff In boxes and cans, for
not much game Is secured, after all,
and the hunter who Is fortunate
enough to shoot a deer would never
think of its being eaten in the woods.
Ho takes it right home to show his
friends and to have its picture taken.
This merchant said he sent out
goods by the wagon load.
A Deer Story.
While in one of Hawley's largest
stores the proprietor told of an in
cident that recently occurred some
where in the State that is quite out
of the ordinary. A farmer's cows
were the source of trouble to him.
They were good cows, but they were
coming home from the pasture lot In
the woods at night minus the milk
that he had good reason to expect
they would give. In fact, day after
day thiB occurred until he decided to
Investigate and learn the cause.
Concealing himself he watched his
cow, and to his amazement he dis
covered the source of all the trouble.
Twt fawns came from the conceal
ment of. adjacent thickets and be
lieving that It was' about supper
time, proceeded to take a round
meal at least one of them did, the
other waiting for his turn at the
supper table that had thus 'been pre
pared for him "In the presence of his
enemies." The cow good-naturedly
entered into the spirit of the game
that was thus being played on the
farmer, not seeming to realize that
she was robbing the one who fur
nished her shelter, hay and wheat
The farmer shot those fawns, and
he was within the iaw In thus pro
tecting his property.
The Drunfhier's Deer Story,
"That's a warm yarn," said a
drummer wheuwas warming his toes
over the hot air register, "but when
I was at Lewlstown, out in Mifflin
county, I saw something that beats
your story, and it's a true story, for
I saw the photograph with my own
eyes. It's about a farmer and his
cows, also. This farmer's cows found
pastureage In the woods. When he
went' to round them up this fall on
of them was missing Ho organized
a regular hunt after the missing
cow, and the animal was found at
laBt. It was mothering a calf, but a
calf quite out of the ordinary. It
had a deer's head, perfect In every
detail, while its body and rear parts
were those of a regular calf. The
farmer drove the cow and Its Cervus
Bos offspring home. He shut the
calf up In the barn and had it photo
graphed. tAfter a conlinement of six
weeks the strange calf died. I did
not see the calf myself, but I saw
the photograph and the camera tells
the truth every time, it simply can't
Plenty of Deer in Pike. -
There are plenty of deer in Pike
county this year. Last winter was
so open and mild that Pike county
deer just grew, and grew, and grew.
Travellers In that county last sum
mer saw deer a-plenty that were
feeding in the' woods. They were
very tamo, and frequently they Join
ed themselves to herds of cattle and
acted quite domesticated.
Some Deer Near Ilawley.
Occasionally deer are seen near
Hawley. They cross the Wallen
Paupack and live in the" open woods
and low places bordering that
stream. Deer tracks have been seen
in the road between Hoadleys and
Lakeville. Last year a man by the
name of Thornton, (u -w deceased),
shot a deer right near Hawley.
A Fenimore Cooper Realism.
One who saw the trio told the
writer that the only typical deer
hunters that left Hawley were Ash
er Killam, a youngster by the name
of Zimmerman and a New Yorker.
They started for the hunting field
on Saturday last so as to be "Johnny
on the spot" on Monday morning.,
With their packs on their backs, and
loaded down as they were with vari
ous accoutrements of .the chase,
the little company looked like XXth
century "Leather-Stockings." Of
course that party will get a deer.
Who Were the Hunters?
One party of hunters was from
Scranton. There were 25 or 30 of
them headed by Stephen S. Spruks.
Mayor Von Bergen was one of that
The Hawley Hunting and Pishing
Club has a ca,bln out where big deer
run. Dr. L. P. Cooke is President
of that club, and used to go deer
hunting every year. This year, how
ever, he did not go. He says that he
finds it too strenuous to stand inac
tive for hours at a time in the
chilly weather of November. This
year the club is represented by
Rhinehard Warg, Dr. Volgt and
Gus. Frank. Their camp is near
Ed. Lynn, of Tafton, headed a par
ty of hunters.
Another 'party was composed of
Will Watts, of Hawley, Harry Gou
cliier, of Scranton, O. T. Hound,
of northern Wayne, Charles Rose,
Peter Cron, John Martin and Robert
Smith. Their camp is at Pulaski,
about 22 miles from Hawley.
C. S. Houck, cashier of the Haw
ley Bank, is also down In Pike this
week. Inasmuch as Mr. Houck is an
ardent Bull Mooser his friends in
sisted that he was hunting after a
new set of horns to wear at tho big
rally that is to bo held on Satur
day of this week in Scranton.
Charles L. Bigart, of Honesdale,
the Prudential Insurance Agent who
lives out at Hoadleys, went to the
front right early. Fred. Rausch
maier went with him this year.
Charles goes yearly, and the writer
HOPES right out loud in big capital
letters that Charley and Frefcl get
a big buck, for Charley is almost
our nearest neighbor, and he knows
we have a fondness for venison.

And, as the writer is penciling

First, there were a lot of people who wanted
Horses. The fame of
the Iowa Horses I sell
has travelled far and
,wide, far out from
Honesdale. People have
heard of my square-deal
way of selling horses,
and they naturally want
to learn more about it
Now, I ra going to talk
and there is no stopping
what I have to say with any of your
objections. Horses sold from my stables are tried
out in every way. When they come to me they
are examined critically and fitted up for work.
This includes proper shoeing, also the searching
out of each horse's peculiarities, for every horse
has its peculiar notions of life, you know, just the
same as has every man and every woman. Then
we try the horses with loaded wagons to test their
pulling power and willingness to work. ' In fact
every horse we sell has to go through the process
of a public demonstration. Then the purchaser
takes it home an tries it for a week, if he wants
to. And that is the reason we sold quite a big
bunch of horses on W ednesday.
IN THE HARNESS ROOM
'twas the same story. Andy Shaffer, our harness
maker, was a very busy boy, trying to keep up
with his orders for new harness, and, at the same
time to satisfy a string of customers who wanted
harness repairs. Say, that fine new harness stitch
er fairly hummed a tune as the wheels went round.
People were caring for the comfort of their
horses by buying
NEW ROBES AND
from the piles of all grades of quality and price that
they found in our new Livery Department store.
And now, Mr. Farmer, Mr. Lumberman, or Mr.
Anybody who may be in need of a Horse, of a
Wagon, of a new Harness or Set of Harnesses, of
new Blankets or Robes, or anything else pertain
ing to Horsedom, you will find that you can get ex
actly what you want, at fair prices and sold under
the well known Braman Guarantee at

ters were "Tho Angel of Light" and
the "Angel of Darkness" who strug
gle all the generations for posses
sion of Immortal souls. Concerning
dramatic structure Prof. Barhour
said every drama had, first, an in
toduction, second, a hint of the
coming struggle or an opening move
ment in the play. Subsidiary scenes
come next Vital points after that,
and finally the climax. This short
talk concluded the morning session.
The institute opened with singing
led by Prof. Watkins in his usual
"Gettysburg and Lincoln" was Dr.
Corson's theme for the afternoon dis
cussion. He began by saying he con
sidered Lincoln's Gettysburg address
the most marvelous speech ever made
in the history of the world. Next
Wednesday will be the 50 th anniver
sary of the delivery of the famous
address. No nation has ever had a
Gettysburg battle; no nation has ever
had such a field; no nation has ever
seen such a reunion as that held at
Gettysburg. More reverence and re
spect should be instilled into the
hearts of the youth, for the old vet
erans who offered their lives 50
years ago, that our nation might
live. The President of the United
States was invited to come and
make a few appropriate remarks at
the dedication of the Gettysburg 1
field. Abraham Lincoln came to wis
kingship not by right of birth but
by right of worth, in the hout of a
nation's dire need. Prof. Corson
said he would rather, by far, see the
band of Abraham Lincoln's old hat,
than all the crowns and jewels ever
worn by all the kings and queens of
the universe. The battle of Gettys
burg settled the fact whether a great
principle should stand or fall. Many
false reports have been circulated
concerning the writing of Lincoln'")
Gettysburg address.. Nearly all of
it was written In tho White House
before ho left for the Gettysburg
field. It was worked overhand revis
ed later in the David Will's house at
Gettysburg. He wrote it out exactly
as he wanted it to go down in his
tory. In an address so brief and so
momentous, every syllable counts and
it was the ultimate expression of the
author's sublime thought. The
whole speech breathes humility; just
as the personality of Lincoln always
did. He never asked credit for him-',
self, but was always giving it to
others. Dr. Corson then read a part
of the description written by John
Morrow, Supt. of the Allegheny pub
lic schools, touching upon tho great
Gettysburg address. Bands, gover
nors on horsebacks, and choirs leant
dignity, to the occasion. Edward
Everett's speech took two hours and
held the great audience spell-bound.
Lincoln was so overcome by his emo
tions as he looked over that great
cemetery that he could scarcely
speak. When his twenty lines were
over, he sat down amidst breathless
silence. He thought he had failed.
To-day his speech lives in the hearts
of his countrymen as no other speech
ever has or will. It is a deathless
tribute to a man whose greatness of
character has never been equalled In
