Blanket Indians recently went on
the warpath, marching up a hill and
then marched down again when It
began to rain, and declared the
-whole thing postponed. They may
have been "soaked" before they
started but evidently didn't intend
to stay soaked.
"We wish to use so much col
lectiveism as will form the best basis
for an altruistic Individualism," re
marked Colonel Roosevelt In simple
words of one syllable, just like that,
In a recent speech In Buenos Ayres,
but just because he knew they
wouldn't understand what he was
talking about, doesn't seem to be
sufficient excuse for him to get gay
and try to kid them.
XOOK FOll A SPLENDID NEW
Beginning with December, we will
present our readers with a magazine
section of general reading matter
-which cannot be secured -outside of
the great cities.
Not only will every member of
the family find in it the highest
grade of reading matter and prac
tical help, but there will be a big
Idea of local beneilt behind it. The
name of this magazine gives a hint
at this benefit it will be titled ''Our
County." Its aim will be to bene
fit this particular community to
develop town and county pride to
tell what other towns and counties
are doing elsewhero for betterment,
and to back up loyal enterprises and
It cannot be emphasized too
strongly that not a line of mail or
der advertising will be carried in
this magazine section. In this, It
will be different from every other
periodical that comes into this
county, and it will light rather than
help the tendency to spend money
with far-off concerns which do not
pay taxes or employ local help.
Only the advertising of our own lo
cal merchants and those manufactur
ers whose goods they carry will ap
pear. It's a splendid co-operative plan
for the benefit of everyone and
the yery best reading matter to be
found will appear In it. Be sure
to read it! The newest fashions
will be shown; there will be special
stories and verses for children, help
for the woman and her home prob
lems, and a rattling good serial story
that has been called the most
strangely, fascinating and thrilling
Imaginative story ever written.
There will be Christmas hints and
Ideas and Christmas Illustrations.
The section will bo sent with the
Issue of December 12 1913.
SOME CITIZEN COMMENT
How an Object Looks depends
very much on the angle it Is looked
at For Instance, hero Is tho way
the Scranton Times looks at the sad
affair that occurred In that city on
Wednesday night, November 2G:
"There was a tragedy enacted in
Scranton on the eve of the day "given
over to Thanksgiving, that like doz
ens of other crimes committed in
this, and other parts of the state,
was Indirectly due to the indiscrimi
nate sale of firearms."
According to the published reports
tho crime was provoked, and had the
man who did the shooting not had a
revolver ho would have used a knife
or a bludgeon. If the reports as
published are truo, tho man who
used tho pistol, left a canary bird he
.had bought as a Thanksgiving pres
ent for his wife and three children,
along with a bundlo containing three
sweaters apiece for his three little
girls and some tam-o'-shanters for
them also, with tho bartender of the
Coyne House. When ho went after
them ho -was intoxicated. When he
returned later in tho evening he was
teased and the articles Withheld,

from him. He bought more drink,
thinking in that manner to get pos
session of his bundles so that he
might return to his wife and little
ones; but by thus being "good" he
failed to get the articles. He begged
for them; he raved about them; ho
got in return only jeers, threats and
commands to-be quiet. Finally, In
desperation, ho pulled out tho gun
and shot the bar tender dead. He
had no business with the gun; but
the man who was shot had no busi
ness to bait him like an animal un
til ho became crazed. There is also
a law against selling strong drink
to Intoxicated persons. The man
with the gun had confidence in the
bartender. The bartender evidently
betrayed the confidence reposed In
him, and went farther than that by
placing the man in a position where
he spent money for drink that other
wise he would not have so squander
ed. But the Times got another
look at the tragedy that seems to be
more In accordance with facts. The
Times says in conclusion of an edi
torial on the subject:
When one calmly reads and thinks
over tho tragedy, do we not look far
ther and blame as much the weapon
in the glass, handed out in one por
tion after another to Monchlnski un
til reason was shattered, as we do
the loaded rovolver? The latter
should not have been carried, but
what was responsible for its use?
Jessie Wilson was the 13th White
House bride. But tho 13 business
didn't seem to scare her young hus
band very much. Ho evidently con
sidered that there had to be a 13th
bride, or the White House bridal
business had to stop.

Hon. Frank P Kimble, who is talk
ed of as the coming Congressional
nominee of the Democratic party of
Wayne, Susquehanna, Bradford and
Wyoming counties, told a pretty
good story the other day while a
Honesdale barber was performing
the 'tonsorial act that we call
shaving." Mr. Kimble told of one
of his ancestors who lived on the
flat lands along the Wallen-Paupack,
who tried ,to get ahead of Nature and
failed. It was haying time. The
yield was fine, and farmers with
stock saw good times ahead and
plenty of cattle feed for the coming
winter. Mr. Kimble cut down a nice
lot of grass, the best ho had, and
"cured" it; but ere ho could get it
into the barn a big shower came and
it all had to be opened up and dried
again. The sooner hay can be stored j
after it is cured the better It is.
Day after day that hay was dried,
and soaked, and mourned over un
til a week passed over. By that time
it was almost spoiled. One beautiful
day I believe it was Sunday, too
tho sun shone bright with every
promise of getting that hay in the
barn at last. It was opened out,
tossed in the wind and sun, and
shortly after dinner it was about as
nearly in perfect condition as hay
could possibly be got. Ono of the
boys was sent to 'bring the ox team
and the wagon, while the 'Squire, (I
am quite sure it was the 'Squire),
gave the hay a few extra touches.
Suddenly thero was a suspicious
sound from the south-west, a sound
like that you sometimes hear from
tho Interior of a steam radiator.
Yes, sure enough! A big shower
was sweeping right towards the un
fortunate hay. The cloud was big,
and black and ugly looking. Light
ning was blazing from it, and the
thunder was changing from a low
rumbling to very business-like clapp.
Then the discouraged man said
things. "Bun boy," he shouted to
a youngster, "run and fetch a
shovelfull of fire from the house, for
the old bull is bellerin' ag'ln!" The
fire was brought, and. soon the
windrows of hay were on fire. In
ten minutes there was scarcely a
vestige of it left, onlv a few curling
patches of smoke.
And tho shower went around! Af
ter that there was good hay weather
for a week!
Tho Booths are healing up their
differences. In 189C Gen. Balling
ton Booth refused to obey his father,
the General Commander of tho Sal
vation Army, and he organized tho
Volunteers of America. During all
I. B. DAUDEKBEnOH
of these years there has been no
reconciliation until last week when
the two brothers, Balllngton, of the
Volunteers, and Bramwell, tho suc
cessor to his father as Commander of
the Army, met, in New York. It is
possible that the two organizations
may consolidate. A Booth pecu
liarity is that every, member of the
family had to -take the family name.
For instance, thero is Maud Balling
ton Booth' and Gen. Booth Tucker.
It must have seemed to tho, two boys
as they clasped hands last week that
they were uniting that clasp over the
open grave of their father.
Blood Poisoning, from handling
money is one of tho new sensations
recently sent out from Scranton. The
teller of a bank In that city was
fjroubled with an in-growing hair
on his neck. After handling a quan
tity of bills he scratched the hair, the
spot festered, and a bad case of blood
poisoning developed. Strango as it
may seem, there are a lot of people
ready to take all tho risks attend
ing the handling of any number of
Do You Remember how two years
ago about this time "everybody" was
talking about tho unseasonable
weather? Every sign from crows to
fish worms pointed to an Iceless win
ter. It was too slishy-sloshy along
about Christmas time, to seem at all
like holidays, and everybody pitied
Santa Claus's "eight tiny reindeer,"
with the snowless stunt they had
ahead of them on "the night before
Christmas." Perhaps you haven't
forgotten the rest of the winter, how
the mercury went down to 34 degrees
'below zero on the morning of Jan
uary 14, when the firemen were
fighting flames in tho Bed Stone
Front on Main street In Honesdale;
nor how cold and snowy it was all
winter long, one day especially when
the sun shone from early morning
until night, not a cloud in tho sky
and the mercury registering zero all
day long. When wo consider these
days of severity which followed a
mild Indian Summer we are led to
caution our readers not to sympa
thize too soon or too seriously with
the Ice man in his imaginary troubles
To obey, or not to obey, we trust
will never be an alternative thrust
upon Mrs. Francis B. Sayre. While
she didn't promise to "obey," quite
likely sho will do as she pleases
about it, anyway, for
"First, then, a woman will, or won't,
depend on 't;
If sho will do 't, she will; and
there's an end on 't."
In Russia there is a sort of nation
al pastime they call "Jew-baiting,"
the main object of which is to tor
ment and cruelly persecute the Jews'
of that so-called Christian land. That
sort of sport is mischiof, and it is
more than mischief, for there is mal
ice back of it. Over from Scranton
comes occasionally details of mischief
that runs quite parallel with the mis
chief of Czarland. On Thanksgiving
evening a poor foreigner was made
drunk with "booze," then tormented
until he shot to death those who were
tormenting him. True, he had no
business with a pistol, but It is equal
ly true that he should not have been
filled with poison and then tormented
until he became crazed. And when
the one who was tormented turned
to the LAW of the city in the form of
a police officer for help, he was told
by that keeper of the city's peace to
"go to !" So much for that
Instance. Now for another.
It is scarcely a year since fi. man,
we regret we cannot recall his
name, left his home out in the coun
try beyond Carbondale to go to
Scranton. His wife said he was a
very kind husband, and he was very
particular to return to his home as
near the hour he invariably said he
would as possible. He had one fault.
That fault was he would sometimes
drink too much when among friends.
He drove his own automobile. In
Scranton he fell among not thieves,
but "friends." Ho drank with them,
and they did something to his auto.
For hour after hour they kept him
tinkering with his machine, calling
in the aid of machinists from the
garage, until long after the hour ho
Intended to start for home. Ho be
came highly nervous along with a cer
tain degreo of intoxication, and in
that condition, after his tormentors
had laughed at him as they explained
their practical joke, ho started for
home. In his confusion he ran his
car on a railroad track In front of an
appoachlng train that was running
at terrific speed, and he was crushed
to death. And that was tho price a
lot of thoughtless Scrantonians paid
for "having some fun" with a kind
and good-hearted husband.
No, no! Russia Is not tho only
placo where human tormentors are at

DO NOT WALK ON TRACKS

THEY ARE MAKING SINCERE EF
FORTS TO PREVENT LOSS OF
LIKE FROM TRESPASS.
Casualties During Past Year Reach
ed 5,284 From Trespassing
Warning Given to Boys Jumping
on and Off Trains.
Approximately 400 persons aro
killed, and an equal number injur
ed, each year in this State, as a re
sult of thoughtlessly or wilfully
walking upon the railroad tracks, in
disregard of the fact that it Is illeg
al for them to do so. This is about
four times the number of persons
killed upon all of the grade cross
ings In the State. This number also
represents about half the total num
ber of people killed by railroads In
tho State under all circumstances.
Much of this trespassing is
thoughtless and all Is of an inexcus
able nature. People walk upon the
track and permit their children to
do so, without considering the seri
ous risk which is 'being incurred.
Others use the right-of-way as the
nearest and most convenient routd
to and from their homes, or other
objective points. Among this class
are many mechanics employed in in
dustrial plants. Some trespass upon
the tracks and in the railroad yards
for the purpose of stealing, and do
much damage to the commerce of
These trespassers jeopardize not
only their own lives, but also tho
lives of thousands of passengers as
well as railroad employees upon tho
trains. Persons maimed while tres
passing upon railroads frequently
become a public charge and thus
needlessly increase tho burden of
taxation. The loss to the commun
ity from such deaths and mutilations
In the reduction of human efficiency
is a grievous one, though not sus
ceptible of exact statement in dol
lars. While the laws of the State
provide a penalty of imprisonment
in the penitentiary or county jail for
not more than one year, or a fine of
not more than $500, or both, for
such trespassing, the effective cor
rection of the evil can "be secured
only by a proper appreciation by the
public of the dangers involved,
which we hope to obtain through tho
aid of parents, school teachers, man
ufacturers and employers of labor in
The Delaware and Hudson and
other roads have tried to deal with
the trespass problem alone for
years, but In spite o. everything
they have been unable to handle it
properly. Ono of the most serious
obstacles is the fact that people have
become so accustomed to trespassing
that they Tesist every effort to stop
it. Another is tho apparent indiffer
ence of the public and the failure of
police magistrates to enforce tho
The interstate .commerce commis
sion gives, for the year ending June
30, 1912, a list of 5,284 trespassers
killed, not passengers, but trespass
ers, and 5.C87 Injured, on American
railroads. That's one year's record.
In the past twenty years 25,000 peo
ple under eighteen years were vic
tims of trespass casualty; 3G.27C ho
boes and 123,103 others, good citi
zens, most of them wage earners,
showing that the greatest loss is
among the class of people who aro of
the most worth, and among chil
dren, who have every right to live.
Little boys and girls like to play
along the tracks. Severe discipline
and restraint by parents would help
materially. They jump on and off
cars, try to operate brakes and start
the cars moving, unmindful most of
tho times because of their vouth, of
tho grave danger they are In.
So far as the car thief is concern
ed there need only be mentioned tho
motive for his presence on railroad
property to be condemned. It is a
strange fact, however, that the ex
perience of tho railroads with the
car thief, the man who is beating his
way and the pernicious trespassers,
has been discouraging from the fact
that here and elsewhere It has ob
tained little or no co-operation from
local magistrates, upon whom de
volves the duty of disposing of cases
where offenders have 'been rightful
Railroads jire convinced that the
trespass evil and tho relations be
tween the magistrates and the rail
roads in the matter of tho enforce
ment of the trespass act affords a
fertile field for the delving of the
psychologist. The view of tho lo
cal magistrate and a good part of
the public, is has found In the past,
is apparently that to trespass Is an
Inherent constitutional right that
must not be interfered with, or wjen
It is, must be dismissed with a
slight reprimand to tho offender and
frequently excoriation of the rail
road making the arrest, whereas,
from the railroad point of view, the
arrest of a trespasser is for viola

benefit and conservation of human

Car thieves or others who may be

Railroad tracks offer a convenient
highway and often furnish a -"short
cut." Employes of Industrial plants
walk along tracks and through yards
morning, noon and night. Through
tho force of examplo children do the
same on their way to and from
school. Women and children pick
coal along the tracks, often going
under standing cars that suddenly
move and kill or maim them.
Men and boys riding on freight
trains Is common to bo seen. The
very great majority of them are not
tramps. Workmen out of jobs
"beat" their way on freights. Others
use freight trains to ride a few
blocks when a walk of tho distance
would bo only light exercise.

of the liability of the 'owners of tho
Titanic for payment in full of tho mil
lions of dollars of claims for loss of
lives and property has como before tho
supreme court from tho circuit court
of nppeals at New York.
The owner of tho Titanic, tho Ocean

law to the value of tho salvage, the
freight and passago money collected
on the oceon voyage that was never
