Peterson dressed the wound but could not locate the bullet. The wound Is not considered serious, therefore no dangerous results are anticipated. On Wednesday afternoon the boy went out hunting in the woods. About three miles from his home he attempted to climb over a stone wall. In doing so tho rifle was accidentally discharged and the bullet lodged in his hip. Despite the pain, the boy was able to walk the throe miles to his home and was later 'brought here. The rifle was a low calibre. COMMISSIONER JACKSON URGES EARLY CLOSING. The Department of Labor and In dustry urges the merchants in the various communities of this SUtc to set together and arrange for early closing during tho weeks preceding Christmas. The stores in Philadel phia and some other cities close at six o'clock without loss of business orlncojivenlence. The department earnestly urges Christmas buyers to do their shop ping as soon as possible, and during daylight. The proper result can be accom pllshed by the associations of mer chants in a community getting to gether, and agreeing upon early clos ing, and by the people taking In hand their Christmas shopping without delay. Action should be taken at once. Commissioner Jackson earnestly hopes that this Department will have this kind of co-operation by the mer chants and the people of the State, in putting into effect the spirit as well as the wording of the legislation passed last winter. icl I v3 I Go Rome for Christmas COp at tbfs buey CbrfGtmae ecason ana tmnn Tor a moment ot we toiro bach borne.

COURT OF CLAIMS RULES AGAINST HONESDALE MAN A dispatch from Washington, D. C, under date of December 1st, says: Frank G. Farnham, who claimed $1,000,000 from the government , on the contention that he was the In ventor of the little waxed page book in which the post office department sells stamps, lost his case in the court of claims. The government de nied the validity of his patents and contended that the book whioh has become so popular was not entirely the one Farnham invented. ' The Frank G. Farnham referred to in the above dispatch is a Hones dale eltizen. The hearing on motion for new trial, Frank G. Farnham vs. U. S., was argued before tho Court of Claims Oct. 27 and 28 at Washing ton, D. C. Frank G. Farnham.

DELAWARE AND HUDSON OFFICIALS IN HONESDALE A special train bearing officials of the Delaware and Hudson railroad system steamed into Honesdale Tues day afternoon. The train consisted of a private coach and combination dining car. The party consisted of Chief En gineer James MacMartln, of Albany, N. Y.; Superintendent C. E. Burr of the Pennsylvania division, carDon dale; Trainmaster C A. Morgan, Car bondale; George Burrell, master bridge builder, Carbondale; Frank C. Tlmmons, lineman of Pennsylva nia division of the Delaware and Hudson road. The object of ihe distinguished men's visit to Honesdale was to in spect the company's property. It Is understood that the officials left or ders for lengthening the west freight switch in the local yard. The track will be built to connect with the "weigh scales track in the yard south of the freight depot. At present if a certain car is desired on the switch, the whole train necessarily has to bo drawn up to tho head of the siding to get to it. When the new switch will have been completed it will save a great deal of time and unnecessary switching. The officials also Inspected the railroad crossing leading to the coal pockets. A gate may be placed at this point. Although this is private nronertv. parties desiring to" load freight in car-load lots or get coal from the shutes have to go over sev eral tracks at this point. It certain ly Is a dangerous crossing, many nar row escapes having occurred at this place In the past. Fortunately no one has been killed. The crossing at the foot of Ter race street is also unguarded. A few days since at the last fall of snow, a lad was coasting down the hill. En gineer James Lindsay, who was in charge of tho yard engine, was about to cross me foot of the street at the time. It was certain that the boy and the engine could not occupy the track at the same time. The careful engineer was on his guard and as the lad did not steer out, but came straight for the big iron horse, En gineer Lindsay applied the emer gency brakes, and stopped the loco motive thus avoiding a collision. The boy experienced a close call, but was pushed a little to one side before the engine came to a standstill. It will bo recalled 'by Honesdale people that John Kellar, father of the late Geo. Kellar, was struck and killed at this crossing somo years ago. JEWELRY IS THE THING FOR XMAS GIFTS MARRIAGE LICENSES nrv mini ii .... ....... iiiiKHViiiti Inerva K. Lempfert . . . .Lakovlllo E.

Tito Business Men's Christmas Edi tion of The Citizen will appear De cember 12, A valued oxcliaiige, tho Search light, recently contained nn article right along tho particular lino of ONEness wo hnvo been talking about. Hero it is: The Chicago Tribune, in its swash buckling way, recently called attention to the fact that In a certain issue it pub lished almost as much advertising as four of Us competitors. Whereupon The Inter-Ocean called attention editorially to the Bhort-sighted policy of advertisers, who bunch their business In one paper to the exclusion of others. Tho Inter-Occun hits tho nail fair ly on tho head. I will go ono far ther tlian tho Inter-Ocoan by de claring that advertisers who "bunch their business" are blind to their own interest, not merely short sighted; nnd ns to "policy ," why there is no policy about their course whatever. Every newspaper lias its friends, and those friends nre not going out of their way to patronize those who refuse to advertise in the publication they like. Further than that, no publisher Is going to "break Ills nock" trying to induce people to patronize people who refuse to pat ronize hhn. It is ft clear case of hu man nature, human interest and selfishness, I suppose, but Jt is so, and there is no getting around the fact. FRANK P, WOODWARD.
