Ids seven-year-old sister, Pauline,
vhlle playing In the yard of their
lome at 115 Young street, East
Ilonesdale, Saturday afternoon about
lialf-past four o'clock.
The lad was about twenty-nve reet
kway from his sister when he level-
Id the gun, but it was only In a
fcpirlt of fun, for he had no Idea It
Ivas loaded. The small shots entered
Ihe right side of the body and face
lit a slant, as the girl apparently turn
fcd toward Thomas who held the gun
i.t her left. Mrs. Ernest Dudley, the
Inother, was attracted by the
bcreams of Pauline and she Knew at
Iince what had happened. Pauline
tvas able to walk Into the house,
lowever, and when Dr. Burns arriv
ed he found her sitting up in bed.
Irhe doctor found ,that none of the
diot had penetrated very deep and
that no serious results could be fear-
lid as a result of the accident. Elev-
bn shot were found in the girl's face

liot yet been made. An injection or
ImHtnvIn was nrlmlnlsterRd to nre-

Mrs. Dudley said Monday that her
two older boys had been out hunting
that day and had had the fortune of
killing a woodchuck. She said she
aad always cautioned her boys to re-
love the shells from the shot gun
vhen they brought It in the house
ifter returning from a hunt and that
Miey had always been careful to at
tend to it. Saturday, sne said, she
supposed the excitement of shooting
Ithe woodchuck had caused them to
be careless with tho gun, which was
brought to the house and placed in a
corner. That Is where little Thomas
found it later.
'It was a fortunate accident,"
Ishe stated to a representative of this
paper. "Thomas didn t have any
idea the gun was loaded when he
I pointed it at Pauline. Thomas feels
very sorry over It and says he will
not pick up a gun again."

The Alert Fire company of East
Honesdalo held their annual .supper
and ball in tho Are hall on Thursday
evening. Everything was a grand
success from the sumptuous supper
served from five o'clock and during
the evening, to tho dance which fol
lowed. Promptly at five o'clock the guests
began to arrive and the dining hall
was filled during tho entire evening.
About three hundred supper tickets
were sold and the dance hall accom
modated about four hundred.
The ladles of East Honesdale, un
der tho direction of Mrs. Calvin J.
Brown, produced one of the best
suppers ever given at a like affair
and everyone was more than satisfied
that his money was well spent. The
ladies should feel proud of their
As the first strains of dance mu
sic floated down to the diners from
the hall above there was a scramble
to secure places on the floor. The
dance began early in the evening and
the merry-making continued unabat

The general committee in charge
of the ball and supper was composed

Bussa, Walter Schlmpf, Frank
Myers, Edward Keltz, Edward Pohle,
Marshall Bayly and William Brown.
The powerful and dazzling front
lights of trolley cars and automo
biles running at high speed on dark
nights seem to serve as dangerous
lures to wild animals. Cotton-tail
rabbits, apparently mystified by the
rapidly approaching glare, will some
times remain still and erect and be
run over. Owls and pheasants have
been known to collide with cars, and
the penetrating rays of the steam
railway locomotives headlight have
lured birds to destruction. Recent
ly, William Ammerman, state game
warden, was returning about 9
o'clock at night from Pike county in
an auto, and when near Gouldsboro
he. saw a large bay lynx or bobcat,

The cat remained motionless and be
wildered, but seemingly, not fright
ened. It gazed intently at the . ad
vancing light and as the machine was
about to hit it the agile animal
.sprang to the Toadslde and escaped.

A Former Wayne County Boy Has
Taken up an Aggressive Battle
Against the Great Tammany Or
The' following is taken from the
Sunday edition of the New York
Times regarding Attorney Edwin P.
Kilroe, who is a former Wayne coun-.
ty boy and well known .in Honesdale:
"From the Nineteenth Assembly
District, on the upper west side,
there came last night the report of
an uprising against Murphy. Edwin
P. Kilroe, a lawyer, who when he
was graduated, read an essay on
"St. Tamma'ny; or, tho Organization
of the Tammany Society of tho Co

There are a number of uneven
joints, broken out pieces which serve
as ruts in which a foot is easily
turned over, resulting in a sprain or

to settle, thus making puddles which
people often times step into and get
wet feet. Now is the time to grade

Says Every Director Should Look to
Proper Cnro of Children in nis
District Supt. Knnpp Spoko on
"School Metterment."
In welcoming the directors of
Wayne county to their annual con
vention the president, Drr C. E. Eil
enberger, Bpoke of. the splendid
work Supt. Koehler had done In
our schools. Under his administra
tion our schools have made wonder
ful progress and we can not fail to
have unbounded confidence In a man
who has so much faith In his fellow
men. A. M. Lelne, secretary of the as
sociation, read the minutes of last
year's meeting and gave a statement
of its finances.
Election of Officers.
The nominating committee gave
the following report:
President, J. A. Brown.
First Vice-President, W. F. Suy
dam, Jr.
"Second Vice-President, F. C. Giles.
Secretary, A. M. Leine.
Treasurer, W. J. Ward.
Auditor, E. R. Bodie.
They were unanimously elected.
Tho Director's Duty.
Dr. Corson was then Introduced to
the meeting and spoke on the "Dir
ector's Dominant Duty." The man
who has an honest purpose and
earnestly strives to carry It out,
never comes far from his duty. He
actually knew of men who had had
tho courage to stand up for their
convictions long enough and often
enough to try to equalizes the taxa
tion. One of the most serious things
in life is the occasion when a man
solemnly swears to do his duty by
the schools of his district. Every
director owes a duty to the people.
He should not needlessly squander
away their money. Our schools cost
much more now than they used to
do. This is due to higher standards
demanded of both teachers and
schools. We pay more for luxuries
and comforts today than we did 50
years ago, why not then, pay more
for our schools? And yet some dir
ectors grumble when a teacher
wants an increase of salary. The
dominant duty of the school direc
tor is to do tho best for the child.
He should look upon each child as
his own. He should work as con
scientiously for his neighbor's child
asfor his own. It is poor economy
to change teachers simply because
one is a little cheaper than the oth
er. Business men hang on to a good
Bunloye as long ns .they can. even if
4hey have to douDje his salary to d6
it. vny aoes it take scnool direc
tors so long to absorb this fact or to
act uno'n it? The directors should
see to the school building that it is
as modern- as it can possibly - be.
Many homes are so poorly ventilated
that the only time children live in
a well-ventilated room Is In the
school room and so it ought surely
to be adapted to this one thing, as
it is, (most important. You wouldn't
hire a laborer ,and give him poor
tools or none at all. And yet you
expect a teacher to 'do a good job
with meagre equipment. The direc
tor who refuses to vote for improve'
ments in the school ought to be
forced to cut his grain with a sickle
and thresh it with a flail. Remem
ber always the advancement of the
child Is paramount and all else is
subordinate to It.
"School Betterment."
Supt. E. M. Rapp, of Reading, was
the next speaker. His subject was
bcnooi. uetterment. ' One weak'
ness in our school system is the in
sufficient aid our Superintendent
has. He needs an assistant How
to make country life more invltine.
socially, Industrially and educational
ly, is a problem confronting the edu
cators of to-day. When this is solv
ed, the exodus to the city from the
farm will be entirely stopped. Chil
dren should live, if possible, in the
country and their parents should ac
quire content with the simple life of
yesterday. If you wan,t to keep the
country boy on the farm you must
keep tho country girl there, too.
Scientific farming will interest the
boy. Tho time has gone when
farming by tradition will answer.
The farmer boy wishes to bo up-to-
aaie ana tne community must help
him to be. Team work in buying
and selling, eliminating the middle
men, will help tho farm to pay bet
ter. "For Pennsylvania nnd ner CM1
dren." Farm life and farm ideals should
be glorified to the young, in the
schools and in the home. The teach
er should teach In terms of the
child's environment. Mr. Rapp be
lieves in centralizing tho schools In
a , district wherever possible and
says if we stand 'back of our teach
ers, our schools and our superintend
ent we cannot fall of success. Our
banner shuld floaty these words:
"For Pennsylvania and Her Chil
dren." Tho Closing Moments.
L. G. Butler, E. F. McLane, A. W,
Eno, Reuben Lancaster and S. B.
Barnes were elected delegates to the
State convention. Each director was
allowed $10 toward his expenses.
Judge Searle was called upon to
speak, but declined because the noon
hour was so near.
DUtrlct Attorney M. E. Simons
gave some reminiscences of his
school experiences which proved to
him conclusively that the spirit of
the teacher was the most Important
factor In the success of a school.
A report of Jast year's State Con
vention was read by J. J, Perham,
after which the association stood adjourned.
