HE recent disappearance of
Henry J. Kotz, of Strouds
burg, on October 28, was of
such an unusual nature that
it attracted universal atten
tlon. The man who disappeared was
a prominent lawyer and was at one
time district attorney of Monroe
county. His disappearance was so
complete that it 'baffled the skill of
the local Sherlock Holmes amateur
detectives in this part of the United
States. Probably the saddest part of
the affair is that in trying to solve
the mystery it became necessary to
make disclosures about the absent
lawyer's personal habits and moral
character that it served no good pur
pose for the public outside of his own
community to know.
The many theories advanced as
probable solutions of the mystery
were as Ingenious as they were prob
able or ridiculous. His presence was
reported In various sections of the
State, but when those who sought
him reached those localities he could
not be located. And thus the mys
tery deepened for one 'full month,
when his dead body was found In a
small brook only a few hundred feet
from his home.
It has been a great many years
since Hawley had such a mystery.
The Marcella Simmons mystery was
so long ago that there are 'but few
left in town who will recollect it.
It occurred at tho close of the Civil
war, and, as recollected by the writ
er, the details are about as follows:
Right near the corner of Main
and River streets lived the Simmons
family. Mr. Simmons was the vill
age shoemaker, and in that family
was a daughter who had just blos
somed Into womanhood. The name
of the young lady was Marcella.
Miss Simmons was employed at the
dress-making shop of Mrs. James
Dunlop, which was a part of the Dun
.lop residence, and was situated right
near the north end of the Mlddlo
Creek bridge on Main street. On the
day of which I am writing she re
mained quite late, as there was a
rush of work In the shop, and she
did not leave for home until the
candles had been lighted. The time
of season was late in the fall.
As the evening wore on and Mar
cella did not return to her home her
people became alarmed, and in the
-winds and darkness of a cloudy,
drizzly fall night, she was sought by
the aid of a lantern. They went di
rectly to the Dunlop shop, but only
to be told that long ere that she
Had started for home alone. They
thought they had passed her in the
darkness, and returned to her home
expecting to find her there; but she
was not there, and in great alarm
the neighbors were aroused, and
searching parties were organized. On
the hillsides, along the banks of the
Tiver, around the coal chutes, around
the canal basin, in the odd and dark
corners of the town lanterns flicker
ed and danced like will-o'-the-wisps.
All night the search went on, but
the only tidings that could be carried
back to the stricken home was that
of continued absence and deepening
mystery. " Surely, when daylight
breaks she will be found," was the
sentiment in everybody's mind; hut
daylight came, the search proceeded,
and there was not even a rift in the
cloud of mystery.
"They sought her that nlgh(
And they sought her next day,
And they sought her In vain
While tho weeks slipped away."
For several days the search con
tinued in possible and impossible
places A publicity fund was raised
and advertisements were placed In
certain metropolitan, papers. The
writer recollects seeing one of those
advertisements, a part of which was
a pniall wood cut of the missing girl,
A'hlch was published In either Harp
er s weekly or Frank Leslie s. Tne
The clairvoyants tried their skill at
unraveling the mystery. They were
not as honest as the magicians, as
trologers, sorcerers and Chaldeans
of the DroDhet Daniel's time, for they
owned right up that they couldn't
tell the secret he required. Wonder
ful. Indeed, were their answers as
to what had become of Marcella Sim
mons. That she was alive all of
them, to the best of my recollection,
agreed. Various answers were given
as to her whereabouts, and how she
got there. Of course the family suf
fered greatly. If they only KNEW
the truth, then they could bear the
sorrow better; but the torture of
suspense is what kills. And thus day
after day Dassed. Christmas and
New Year's came and passed by, but
no H diners were brought to. the sor
rowing family. Winter waxed; the
ice crew thick and thicker: the sun
rode higher in the heavens; then the
season waned and the gentle windB
and soft rain drops began to fall,
Spring drew on apace, the Ice broke
up and went out of the creeks and
rivers, and rafts of logs, boards and
sawed timbers began passing from
the UDner Dyberry through Hawley
One dav. when the willows were
beginning to turn green and there
was every indication that Summer
was surely coming, some wanderers
along the Lackawaxen, away down
the Tiver below the Narrows suauen
ly came across the dead body of poor
Marcella Simmons. It was entangled
in some brush and half buried In the
sand. And thus the mystery was
solved. In the wind, the cold and
the darkness of the drizzly Novem
ber nleht she had either fallen or
been blown by the blast from tho
wooden brldce that BDanned the Mid'
die Creek where tho new cement
bridge, was recently constructed, Into
the Quarreling waters that were
rushing towards the Delaware. Tho
winds and noise of the waters drown
ed her brief call for help, and in
some recess among the rocks tho
cruel waters hid her body from the
gaze of the searchers by night and
by day until in the fullness of time
the mystery was fully ana complete
ly answered.

Tho New School Board
Installs Commercial Course.
On Monday night the school board
held an important meeting at which
the frazzled ends of the year's work
were gathered up and adjusted as
far as possible. Dills were passed
on, approved If all right, and ordered
New Members were accepted and
a new organization was effected. W.
F. Suydam was elected President and
Dr. A. C. Volgt Vice-President of the
board. The Secretary-Treasurer was
not chosen at the meeting.
Supt. J. J. Koehler, who always
takes an interest in Hawley affairs,
as he was a Hawley boy himself, was
present at the meeting.
Probably the most Important busi
ness done by the school board was
the unanimous adoption of a reso
lution providing for the addition of
a commercial course to tho High
school's curriculum. The course

cial course appeared representatives
of the Underwood, L. C. Smith and
the Royal typewriter companies, who
presented the claims of superiority
of their respective makes of type
writing machines. No deflnlto action
was taken, and all of "the boys" will
undoubtedly receive a share of pat

Monday of a ten per cent, increase

there when the Wllsonvllle turnpike

tho water flowing through it. The
council went over the cIHim carefully

the regular bridge was removed from
its former location near the foot of

the covered variety much in vogue
in the days before the war. They
were expensive to build, expensive to
maintain, dangerous after they began
to grow old, and a terror to every
body who had to pass through them
after dark. Nobody mourned when
they vanished.

An Author-Evangelist Will
Visit F. P. Woodward.
Albion F. Ballenger, of Riverside,
California, will spend a few days In
Wayne county. Ho will reach Hoad-
leys on Friday of this week. Mr. Bal
lenger is not only an evangelist oi
power, but he is an author of con
siderable note. Probably his most
noted book is entitled "Power for
Witnessing," and is undoubtedly the
clearest and most practical work
along the line of perfect Christianity
that has been produced in genera
tions. Mr. Ballenger is a poet of
marked ability, several of his produc
tions taking the form of sacred song.
He Is an earnest speaker, and has
tho rare faculty of presenting any
subject he wishes to talk about with
such clearness that the listener can
understand its every detail. He Is
no ranter, but is a sweet tempered,
courteous, scholarly gentleman
whom to know is a rare privilege.
Certainly Mr. Ballenger will do some
talking while on his visit. Mr. Wood
ward s home at Hoadleys will be
opened for a few public services
There will also be services in South
Canaan on tsunoay next.
Mr. Ballenger left his little orange
grove rarm near uiversiae, uaiuor-

extensive tour. He win leave wayne
