Hawley at Christmas Time
ONDERING, always wondering are children. It is a mooted question until
after Santa has come and gone whether the stocking will be filled with the
articles they want, or with some things they fear they deserve whips and
such like, for instance. The present day Christmas always finds Hawley
decked out in all her finest for the occasion. If snow covers the ground ana
we hear the sound of
" sledges with their bells,
What a world of merriment
Their melody foretells,"
why, the music blends beautifully and most harmoniously, and we close our
eyes to the present and dream that we are again living over the days that
are srone. The pine clad hill at the south, with snowv base, adds charm to the scene, as .it is

LET THE HAWLEY BANK
HELP YOU TO PROSPER.
FTER the Christmas plum
pudding has heen oaten,
JEZaSKI and old Santa's sleigh and
IgSaBftsl its magic teams have been
disposed of for a full year's
rest, people begin to count the cost
of everyday necessities and they set
tle back in the harness for another
pull at the burden of life. Fortun
ate, indeed, is the person who is the
owner of a bank book, that shows a
balance to the credit of the depositor.
But that is the condition that all who
toll may attain. The Hawley Bnnk
makes it easy for everybody to save
money. That bank Is one of the
sturdiest institutions in the country.
It has had a remarkable growth,
winning a popularity during its less
than three years of life that Is envi
The substantiality of The Haw
ley Rank may be to a certain extent
comprehended when the reader re
jects a bit on the fact that Its as
sets total nearly $300,000. Further
than that, when the bank examiner
passed on the bank's condition re
cently he spoke in the highest terms
of its fine line of securities. As a
matter of fact the bank's money is all
Invested in a line of securities that
are gilt edged in every commercial
sense. This is very comforting to
every depositor. Such knowledge
leads to peaceful slumber and pleas
Somebody lias said, there Is no roy
al road to knowledge, all must learn
as the result of study and mental
labor. Even so with the affairs of
life that go to 'make what wo call
" success." There is no royal road.
The King Midas business is. a fairy
story U dream. People aVnass a
competency by means of systematic
economy. The Hawley Rank shows
depositors how. You make a deposit
at that institution. Immediately
what you deposit goes to work for
you. In six months your deposits
have earned you a certain sum. This
sum is added to your deposit account
and It, also, begins to draw interest.
Thus your savings will in time place
you on Easy Street.
The very best advice we can give
our readers is to open an account
soon at The Hnwley Rank. Make It
a point to have something at work
for you there at the very beginning
of 1914. When Christmas time comes
next year you will be surprised at the
way you have prospered if you get
The Hnwley Hank back of you help
ing you along.
"KEYSTONE" CUT GLASSWARE
MAKE PRACTICAL PRESENTS.
f"""7jLASSWAItE, cut glassware,
I I we mean that comes from
the "Keystone" shop, is
(something' worth while
when you are considering
presents. "Keystone" cut articles
are as valuable, beautiful and accept
able at ono season as at another.
Any table that is spread with "Key
stone" cut glassware will sparkle and
Klltter like the diamonds on the
snow-covered trees by 'moonlight
when Santa Claus is making his
rounds. Some people have the
thought that you can't buy cut glass
ware direct from the manufactory.
That may be true of some shops, but
not so with ex-Sheriff Murphy's
"Keystone" establishment. You 'may
go right there to headquarters, pick
out what you want and take home
with you the glittering articles.
Benjamin Franklin made his ''Poor
Richard" say "glass, china and
reputation, are easily crack'd and
never well mended." The "Key
t stone" cut glass is ma6e from high
' grade stock of tough quality, not
easily broken, but as serviceable all
tho year around as It Is beautiful In
design and brilliant in effect.
DOWN AT TEETERS CORNER
IS FUKN1TURE HEADQUARTERS.
THE REAFJOER IS A
VERY POPULAR HOTEL.
AST summer every time the
I f I "Down Hawley Way" de
partment appeared the
reader was told that on the
following Friday there
would be " ANOTHER BIG FISH
DINNER " at Hotel Reafler. Those
" Big Fish Dinners " became famous.
Now anybody can serve a fish dinner,
but there are few who can serve them
like J. A. Baschon, the proprietor, or,
more accurately speaking, his wife.
The fresh fish used at those dinners
were 'mainly caught by Mr. Baschon
himself from the lakes of Pike and
Hotel Reafler is one of the oldest
public houses in Howley. It has
always been home like in Its char
acter. Under Mr. Baschon's manage
ment it has become very popular
with young men who work in Haw
ley but whose home is elsewhere.
Tho rooms are steam heated and the
house is so conducted that the pa
tron, whether for a single meal, or as
a steady boarder, is fully satisfied.
THE MANGAN STORE HAS
LONG HEEX A HAWLEY FIXTURE.
OWN Main street where it in
tersects Church street s
Teeters' Corner. It was
called that away back In
the GO's, probably in the
50's. That has been the Hawley
centre of Furniture for all these
years. The enterprise has been
handed down from father to sons,
two of them, George and Richard,
now conducting the business on the
same lines of enterprising progress
as Inaugurated and maintained by
their fattsr. This furniture store
was esta (Ished by a man who un
derstood tie trade, a man who could,
if- necess ry, make tho articles he,
sold, lnd ed, used to do that very
trick. That made him a practical re
pairer of all kinds of furniture.
Well, the present proprietors ore fol
lowing right along tho same lines.
No matter what you may need in the
line of Furniture, in all probability
they have it in stock. If they have
not, they will get It for you, and their
prices are fully as low as good goods
may be sold and leave any profit at
all for tho dealer.
JUST FOR TO-DAY.
Dedicated -to .Questioning Ones Everywhere,
Including the Writer.
HE general store, that Thomas
F. .Mangan cqnducts on Riv
er street looks just as
Christmasey this year as
ever, and it -was always a
splendid storo to patronize, either at
Christmas time or any other time.
That store was started away back in
the early days of Hawley, days" be
fore " the boys " went away to fight
the big battle for the Union. It was
a Thomas Mangan who conducted
the store then, father of the banker
Mangan of to-day, the Thomas Man
gan who was -with the Pennsylvania
Coal Company when it began opera
tions and whose old books show the
names of tho 'men who ran the first
trains over the mountain into Haw
ley. In those days the Mangan store
made it a rule, even as it uses the
same rule to-day, of attaching much
importance to the quality of the
goods it sold. Considering that
everybody is entitled to the best in
the market, Mr. Mangan endeavors to
supply what he believes belongs to
the people. That is why you are
sure of getting full value for your
money -when you buy groceries and
general merchandise at that store.
SNYDER, EREETHY & PARKER
THE REXALL DRUG STORE.
iXTRA care in every part of
tho business conducted by
"The Rexall" drug store in
Hawley is what really
makes that store locally
famous. This extra care not just
the common, ordinary kind of care
follows every sale and is back of
every prescription compounded.
That means a whole lot to the ordin
ary person, as well as to the particu
lar purchaser in reality it means
SAFETY as well as economy and sat
isfaction. Snyder, Freethy &. Parker are men
of good taste, progress and present
day methods. They have ' a drug
store that Is right up to the times.
Besides high class Drugs, they
sell a special line of Fancy Articles
that appeal to buyers at holiday
times. Shortly after Christmas look
out for their second Ono Cent Sale.
Full particulars later. Watch and
EVERY DAY SEEMS LIKE
CHRISTMAS AT CURRAX'S.
1HE years have come and
I I gone 'many of them
since the general store now
conducted by J. J. -Curran
was opened to the Hawley
public. At the Christmas holiday
season each year, of course, there is
something a little brighter, a little
better, a little more suggestive of
the great annual festival. It is a real
pleasure to purchase articles, -whether
of the Christmas variety or for the
common everyday wants of the
household at this River street store.
You are waited upon so cheerfully,
and Mr. Curran himself smiles upon
you so graciously that every day
seems to be the day before Christ
mas at that store.
INSURANCE POLICIES' MAKE
VERY SENSIBLE PRESEXTS.
ANTA CLAUS might and
does, make many gifts that
are not half so useful as
would be an Insurance pol
icy on your buildings or on
your life. And when you speak of In
surance you are sure to think of the
business that was founded in Haw
loy by the late Daniel Bingham. He
used to advertise, without fear of
contradiction, that the Bingham
agency "was the best equipped In
Wayne county. Then R. B. Wall be
came a partner in that business, suc
ceeding to it -when Air. Bingham died.
The business has constantly grown
under every change In proprletor-
In early morn 'fore rise of sun,
Ere daily tasks I've scarce begun,
By faith I pierce beyond the skies,
Where dwells the One with sleepless eyes,
Who, through the ravens, prophet fed,
And murmur, " Give, oh give me bread !
Lord, give me bread," I humbly pray
"For this one day
Just for TO-DAY'
The tempter comes and points to years
Pressed full of struggle, pain and tears,
Till, full of fears, my heart grows weak,
And scalding tears course down my cheek ;
Then far beyond the sun and stars
I call to God of peace and wars:
" Lord, give me courage for the fray
For this one day .
Just for TO-DAY!"
Again I'm shown long years of strife
Where hope means much, and faith means life,
Where millions sink along the-road,
Destroyed by greed, and gold, and goad.
Once more I call, with all my might,
To Source of right, and might, and light
" Lord, give me skill ! Givel Give! I pray,
For needs to-day
Just for TO-DAY!"
The light breaks through from shining throne,
A smile from Him, for me alone ;
A voice says, " Son, thy prayer is heard,
No tear is lost, ne'er, lost a word. x
I'll give you courage, bread and skill
It is my will sad heart, be still!
Yea, I will give you all the way
Help for TO-DAY
Help EVERY DAY!"

appreciated by all team owners. The
writer would like to go more In de
tail descriptive of the plant and its
workings, but the space limit will
not permit it. People all over Haw
ley and vicinity, are congratulating
the new company which is certainly
doing much for the benefit of the
ship; but the strenuous life incident
to such an enterprise made it neces
sary for Mr. Wall to retire from tho
work, and now the business is con
ducted by two energetic young men
of Hawley under tho flrm-namo of

NELL'S FAMOUS MEAT MARKET
DURING CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS.
iO back fully 50 years and the
name of Nell in Hawley
'tfXs5j means 3ust what it does to
day, the very best in Fresh
Meats. Fred Nell, father
nf C. P. Nell, for a Inner time con
ducted the town's only meat market
He was one of the best friends the
farmers of lower Wayne county had.
He bought their stock, paid them
good prices for it, and from his block
sold1 the best meat that money could
buy. Tho writer knows, for he saw
Mr. Nell as he made trips among the
farmers, and he has eaten many
pounds of tender, juicy steaks and
cuts from his shop on Main street.
C. P. Nell's shop to-day is a model
In every respect. The next time you
go there glvo it a critical examina
tion and see for yourself that UiIb Is
so. The 'meats he sells are just as
fine as they were In the "good old
days." The steaks are Just as tender
and juicy and the roasts are just as
At Christmas holidays the Nell
market always had extra fine meats,
and tills year they 'are as fine as any

WELSH & AMES HAVE
A SATISFACTORY STORE.
OME of our readers may won-
der what sort of a store a
"satisfactory" store is, any
how. In answer to that we
iwould briefly remark that a
"satisfactory" store Is a Welsh &
Ames store, and let it go at that.
The term satisfactory covers more
than variety of stock, and the stock
of Welsh & Ames Is surely varied
enough to suit tho -wants of every
body. You can get almost anything
there 'from Furs, Coats and Suits for
women's wear to the daintiest line of
Holiday Groceries. Both proprietors
have spent all their working years at
the business of selling goods and sat
isfying customers. Tho senior pro
prietor was satisfying purchasers as
a young 'man nearly fifty years ago.
In those days the father of Mr. Ames,
the junior member, -was in the busi
ness of satisfying customers in his
store on the corner of Keystone street
and Maple avenue. Oh, certainly!
We came near omitting the vital part
of this little story which is that if any
patron of this store ever feels dissat
isfied with prices, quality or service,
it is up to you to speak right out
PAUPACK COAL COMPANY
IS GREAT ENTERPRISE.
AWLEY'S newest enterprise
is tho Paupack Coal Com
pany, Limited, which does
not mine coal, but sells coal
at retail. The members of
tho company are all Hawley men ot
enterprise and Influence. The Presi
dent of the now company is Frank R.
Stevenson. Its Secretary is F. C.
White, and its Treasurer is R. W.
Sands. At present their headquart
ers are at the "pockets" near the
Erie water tank where they retail
coal to the good people of Hawley.
Shortly after tho beginning of the
New Year but wait a minute.
Wo haven't got that far yet
Tho Paupack Coal Company,
Lt'd, secured tho right to build
"pockets," etc., down at Degnan's
crossing. They have put in a switch,
and have ample grounds for all pur
poses. Tons, and tons, and tons ot
cement are being used for founda
tional purposes. They are construc
ting a plant that Is anticipatory of
the town's growth in the coming
years. The work has been rushed
day and night, and the structure
will soon bo complete. When com
pleted it will have a capacity of
nearly a mllllon'tons of coal. Haw
ley Is to be taken care of In the face
of a coal shortage like that of 1902.
The coal will be handled by meanB
of a conveyor, and the capacity Is
about 50 tons an hour. That means
that they can sell and deliver nearly
a ton a 'minute to waiting teams.
The grade from the -weigh scalfes to
the street -will be easy, which will be
THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK
A HAWLEY BULWARK.
AWLEY, like many other
towns of equal size, went a
long time without the bank
ing facilities its various
business enterprises war
ranted and in fact demanded. In
1902 some of the leading business
men of Hawley obtained a charter
and opened the doors of The First
Nationnl Bank. The new bank vas
capitalized at $50,000, and the enter
prise was a success from its very
start. Although there had been a
banking business in .the town for
some time it was an individual en
terprise, and Tho First National
Bank was the first real attempt at
banking in the town for the tovn's
To-day, after an eleven-year exist
ence, The First National Bank of
Hawley Is regarded in all that section
of the County as being in reality
morjj than a leader, in fact a very
bulwark of financial strength on
jvhich the entire community may
lean with all the satisfaction that
comes from perfect security.
I It is very satisfactory for patrons
of a bank to know who and what Is
behind tho place where they make
their deposits. It is a splendid thing
to realize that back of a bank is the
great government of the United
States such knowledge is very rest-
fulfrom a financial standpoint. It is
also very satisfactory to know that a
bank is officered and directed by
men of such standing and integrity
as Dr. L. P. Cook, its President; F.
C. White and R. W. Murphy, vice
President V. A. Decker, Cashier, and
that added to these four as directors
are found an array of business taen
like II. J. Atkinson, E. L. Schlager.
John S. Welsh, P. H. Kearney and
R. F. Warg.
The First National Bank, of Haw
ley, has a surplus fund larger than
its capital stock, and, at tho rate the
institution's business has been in
creasing it will not bo many monthrf
before its deposits will reach the mil
lion dollar mark.
