TUREINSTITUTE CLOSED TUESDAY EVENING.
The Wayne County Farmers' In
stitute met at the court house on
iMonday', December 8th, at 1:30
D'clock. Owing to the very unfavor-
Iable condition of tho weather, the
farmers did not turn out to the af
ternoon session in such numbers as
vas expected, but as the afternoon
rwore on, the number increased until
I the attendance was fairly large and
representative of the farming inter
ests of tho county.
The meeting was called to order
jromptly at 1:30 by W. E. Perham,
Chairman of the Board of Institute
Managers, who called upon Charles
lA. McCarty, Burgess, to make tho
Dpening address, and welcome those
Burgess McCarty Addresses Farmers.
Mr. McCarty said that ho supposed
in address of welcome on an occa
sion of this kind referred particular
ly to strangers, as tho largest num-
Iber of those present could claim the
right to be in Honesdale and par
ticularly in the court house. He
stated that meetings of this kind for
tho purpose of mutual advancement
in any line of knowledge was most
commendable and particularly so, as
the object of the meeting was for
education and advancement along
Ithe lines of agriculture, the most im
portant industry to which the at
tention of the people could possibly
turn. He said that a number of peo
ple with similar views on the same
subject could accomplish more than

Hndlvldually along the same lines.
lot only that, but the instructions'
I furnished by those wellvquallfled for
tho duties must be beneficial to those
present. Mr. .McCarty stated that his
pwn early environments, having,
been brought up on a farm, would
lecessarlly influence him and inter
est him In the agricultural interests
it this county, he never ceased his in
terest in farming but always took a
leep interest in the success of this
great industry, having himself owned
farm even to the present day. He
said the presence of J. S. Champion,
proressor of agriculture of the Hones
iale High school, together with a
Rarge class of intelligent boys taking
lotes of every suggestion offered by
those selected by tho State as in
structors was most encouraging. He
3tated that in his opinion such boys
ma classes would soon solve the
problem of the high cost of, living
without any assistance from Con
gress. He said laws should be en
acted to protect the farmer who bv
skill and industry made two 'blades
ar grass grow where only one had
srown before. So that all the nroflts
prom this double production might
revert to mm, and not to some oth
er person. Ho referred to the old
lethod of farming in comparison
vlth the progressive methods of to-
lay, and predicted even greater ad
vancements as the result of the ef
fort put forth by tho State through
farmers' institutes in educating the
people in tins most commendable in
dustry. He said Honesdale was
proud of the hospitality of its neonle

Fred W. Card of Sylvanla. Pa., re
sponded to tho address of welcome
lind expressed the pleasure of him-
feelf and associates in knowing that
the borough of Honesdale had offi
cially extended to them such a cor-
llal welcome. He said it was alwavs

THE CITIZEN SUGGESTS
DORMITORY FOR GIRLS
In view of tho fact that the Industries
of Honesdale have outgrown the output
of textile operators In this community,
Tho Citizen Is of the opinion that there
Is a remedy out of this difficulty. It
suggests that a dormitory be built. There
Is difficulty for girls in obtaining suit
able boarding places when coming to
Honesdale to seek employment. When
they do obtain board It Is oft times
higher than they can afford to pay. By
having a dormitory it is possible that
this would solve tho problem of the help
situation In Honesdale.
A suitable building could be erected or
a barless hotel might be secured for this
purpose. A party could bo obtained to
superintend the property, who should also
bo well qualified in domestic science. By
paying a nominal price for board, sever
al additional young women ougltt to be
added to the industries of Honesdale.
An Incentive for young women and girls
living in tho rural districts could be ar
ranged. A hoarder could bo allowed a
certain percentage discount each week
on the board bill If Bho would make her
own bed and 'do other necessary work
that might bo directed by tho landlady In
A gymnasium, reading room and par
lor could be included In tho building. Tho
rooms could be made as attractive as
possible so as to make tho girls at homo.
Week-end entertainments could be ar
ranged for thus giving ,tho girls & pleas
ant social occasion, making It pleasant
and home-llko for them.
The question of help In Honesdale has
reached the point where manufacturers
find it hard work to obtain operators to
take care of Increased trade. The Citizen
believes that if a suitable building al
read" erected could be obtained and con
verted Into a home for out-of-town girls,
it would eventually lead to the moving
of their families here, and, that it would
solve the problem of tho girl-want ques
tion in Honesdale.
The proposition will be presented before
the Board of Trade on Friday evening.
FATHER ACCUSED BY Glltl; OF
The Scranton Dally News has the fol
lowing to say concerning a man well
known In Honesdale:
Mrs. W. B. Duggan, the Board of As
sociated Charities and Humane society,
of Scranton, to-day had a warrant issued
by Alderman Jones charging William
Matthews, car inspector for tho Dela
ware & Hudson company, with a statu
tory offense on his twelva.venr.nld
daughter. Mrs. Duggan came tb Carbon-
uaie on ine complaint oi neighbors, lnves.
ttgatcd and said she secured an admls
slon from tho girl.
The circumstances in the case are
startling and sad. Tho daughter is an
only child. For the past year, since her
mother and father have been separated,
she has been the housekeeper at their
home on Laurel street, Scranton, where
the father continues to live.
The father works nights and during
that time tho girl was accustomed, it is
said, to entertain a young man at her
home. She said that she had two beaua

she herself thought was the better. This
condition complicates the case, Bay char

which was always uppermost in the de
ceased's mind. Councilman Kreltner
and Mr. Ham slowly wended their way
home after saying goodnight to the writ
er at T. B. Clark's corner. It was no
ticed at the time that Mr. Ham's breath
was unusually short. .
Shortly before 11 o'clock Mrs. Ham
heard an unusual sound at tho back of
the houso and Inquired of her son, Earl,
If he knew what It was. It was Mr.
Ham's habit to use the back stairs of his
home. Karl descended the lllght and
called to his mother, "It's father." Mrs.
Ham was soon at the side of her be
loved husband. An effort was made to
arouse him, but to no avalli Dr. F. W.
Powell was called, who did all In his pow
er to regain consciousness, but Mr. Ham
died an hour and a half after he was
stricken, without having spoken a word
to his wife nnd his son. Death was due
to valvular he"art trouble, from which
the deceased had been a sufferer for the
past two years.
Since his residence in Honesdale, nine
years ago, when he and his family re
moved from Newark, N. J., to this place
on account of his health, Mr. Ham has
been an active citizen of the town. He
was elected a member of the borough
council, having served that offlce with
enterprising fidelity. Ho was re-elected
to the office last November for a term of
four years. As president of tho Business
Men's Association, Mr. Ham always con
ducted the business pertaining to same
In a manner which reflected the true
spirit which always abided In him. He
was second vice-president of the Board
of Trade anu a member of" Indian Or

missed In these organizations, every
member having a warm place in his heart
for their deceased brother and friend.
For the past few years Mr. Ham has
conducted a harness shop and stoic In
Honesdale, having purchased the late
George Mayhew's business.
Samuel Thomas Harr. was a son of the
late William and Elizabeth (Honey) Ham
and was born in Albany, N. V., Novem
ber 6, 1857, having .Just passed his ECth
birthday. He spent his early life In the
Empire State capital, afterwards coming
to Honesdale with his parents where he
remained for a few years, learning the
harness making trade with James Mat
thews. After he served his apprentice
ship ho went to Albion, Ind., where he
remained five years, coming to Hones
dale again where he spent a short time,
going to New York City shortly after
wards. Mr. Ham was employed at his
trade five years In the metropolis when
he married Miss Mary Pethlck, of
Honesdale. The ceremony was perform
ed In New York city on New Year's Day,
1SD0. After marriage Mr. and Mrs. Ham
lived in New York seven and a half
years and In Newark, N. J., tho same
length of time. They then came to

One who has served with Mr. Ham on
the town council speaks of him as fol
lows: " As a public official while serving ns a
member of the town council he was fear
less In the discharge of his duties, but at
the same time he was courteous and
most agreeable to his fellow members.
His whole aim and object as a council
man was to advance the best Interest of
tho borough and Its people and ho never
for a moment allowed expediency or fear
bf-oehsuro to sway a single act of his
or interfere with tho carrying out of his
purpose when once ho had .determined
upon the course ho intended to pursue.
" While Mr. Ham often saw fit to dis
agree with the opinions of his associates
on the council upon matters which came
beforo the council for discussion, no
member ever doubted the sincerity of his
purpose or me xorco ot ins reasoning."

Yes, it would bo bad enough If only
ono of n ldnd existed in Iloncsdale.
From tho beginning tho rule of two
was laid down In tho (garden of Eden.
There was Adam, but there had to bo
an Eve. Thero was room for both,
and both had to have an existence.

until two of each kind nt least TWO
wero on board nnd provided for.
No need of grumbling about Admit
nnd Eve, showing a preference for
either, for they had to travel in
couples or not travel at all. The
rule of ONE isv abhorrent to nil natur
al laws. No two people think alike,
nnd it is iv good tiling they do not.
"If everybody thought alike," snld
tho Indian, "then everybody would
