Did you ever notice that most women
go up stairs on all fours? Well, not
quite, perhaps, but entirely too much
In that fashion.
It Is fashionable Just now In this
town to have hay fever. If you sneeze
twice In one day, you have it.
Miss Buckbee, who was one of the
most capable Instructors at tho Insti
tute, believes that the Pollard system
of phonics, so much In vogue, does not
combine all the advantages to be de
sired In this study.
A small boy, not many miles from
Scranton, was saying his prayers the
other night. He was a very little chap,
Indeed, only four years old, and after
he had concluded his petition, he in
quired: "Mamma, why do I have to
say 'a-men? Why isn't it a-woman?'
I do get awful tired of calling it 'u
men' all the Cme." There can be no
doubt In the world that this child la
destined to be an apostle of advance
beyond even Mary Elizabeth Lease.

placed on tho southern corner of Spruce

it is allowed to remain there. It Is too
small and unsightly to be a wonder or

nothing thpre to be guarded, becauxe
the Dime Savings bank Is not within

wagon Is long enough to reach from
the curb to the tower of this ban':
building. I am fully aware that simi
lar monoliths used to be placed on
street corners during the middle ages
to protect the corners of buildings, as
is so beautifully illustrated In our court
house, but In thoso times thore were
no sidewalks and such stones did tnere
foro actually protect the corners of
buildings from being damaged by col

tho same n,s the side poets of gates or

T yielded to tho temptation of buying
a wheel and since then I don't wall:
any more than others who have a

this corner above mentioned. It has
added muih to my skill In steering and

It has been long claimed by Welshmen
hereabouts that tho Australian Kan

When the famous fighter was In the
city, Thursday, Aug. 20, he dined, after
the ball game, with a number of per
sons, two of whom are Welshmen. Dur

"Is It true that you are a Welsh

WARNER AGAIN INSANE.
Taken to (he Hillside Home Along with
an Italian Boy, Who Was Also
"Hilly" Warner, who not many years
ago was one of the best engineers thi
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
company h'nd, was taken to tho Hill
side Homo yofcterday for the second
time as an Insane patient. On the
same train to Clark's Summit and
handcuffed to Warner was a 13-year-old
Italian boy, Joseph Trlko, of Dunmorc,
Warner'o derangement Is said to date
from 1SS9 when he was injured In a
wreck on the Delaware, Dackawnnna
and Western railroad on the bridge
over South Adams ave.ete. The engine
Warner was driving was badly smash
ed and ho was hurled from the brldga
to the rond. Ills left leg was badly
smashed. The wound healed but War
ner lias been lame since and his les
shows the effects of the Injury.
He was confined to the home once
before but recovered and was discharg
ed. Wednesday night Warner began his
insane antics In the North End. Hu
was arrested and afterward released.
Yesterday ho was again arrested by
Patrolmen Hart and Peuster and In the
afternoon Drs. Gunster and Bernstein
for the Poor district, examined him and
declared him insane.
Two watches found In his clothing
were sent to his wife at her home on
Prescott avenue. In the cell at tho
police station yesterday Warner tore
his clothing off.
Trlko, the young Italian, was hand
ed over for examination to poor board
physicians by his father. He was ad
judged Insane. He got Into a tiupKy
on Lackawanna avenue Wednesday
night and drove to the South Sido
where he was captured. Thursday
right he persisted In stealing tho dan
ger lanterns on Mulberry street. His
homo is in Dunmore.
HE FLIES A BIQ KITE.
It Carries u String Almost ns Heavy
ns nn Ordlnnry Clothes Line.
James Leltch, the well-known colored
waiter at Hanley's dining room, has
constructed an Immense kite after the
pattern of the Blue Hill box kite and is
flying It on breezy days from the hill
back of No. 35 school.
The kite Is twelve feet long, eight
feet wide, and four feet deep, and car
ries a string nearly as heavy as ordi
nary clothes-line. Hundreds of peoplo
are attracted to the hill every day that
the kite Is up.
The kite is the same as used by the
government at experiment stations. It
consists of a light and slender frame
work of the dimensions mentloned.wlth
a two-foot band of cloth at the top and
bottom. The air passing through the
openings in the box keep It afloat.
When there Is a strong wind It Is nec
essary to snub the string to a post or
tree to keep it from getting away.

All the grading nlong the line of the
Susquehanna Connecting Railroad Is
done, the ties and rails are laid and
about Oct. 1 It Is expected that en
gines and cars will be passing over
the new road, feeding freight to the
main line of the Wllkes-Barre and
Eastern, which Is tho coal Meld branch
of tho New York, Susquehanna and
Western railroad. When the latter road
was first built It was projected from
New York to the heart of tho anthra
cite coal field, but was not constructed
further than Stroudsburg, for an ar
rangement was perfected with the Del
aware, Lackawanna nnd Western Rall
Toad company by which that company
was to carry coal for the New York
and Susquehanna to Spraguevllle. n
few miles from Stroudsburg, which
was the real terminus of the road.
Several years ago the ousquehanna
peoplo decided to have their own road
to the coal fields, and the Wllkes
Barre and Eastern railroad, which run1)
from Stroudsburg to Wllkes-Barre,
was the result. It Is used exclusively
for freight and conl, making no hid
whatever for passenger traffic. After
the Wllkes-Barre and Eastern was
completed the coal from the various
collieries hereabouts, which sell their
product to the New York, Susquehan
na and Western, was carried over the
Delaware and Hudson railroad to a
point near Mill Creek, where a spur
connects the Delaware and Hudson and
Wllkes-Barre and Eastern. For carry
ing coal from various points along the
valley to this junction the Delaware
and Hudson was paid about $200,000 a
year. To save this big freight Item It
was decided to build a road that would
reach theso collieries and early last
spring the Susquehanna Connecting
railroad was organized for the purpose
of Inilldlng a road from Padly's land, on
the Wllkes-Barre and Eastern to Win
ton. W. J. Lewis, of this city. Is pres
ident of the company. He Is also a

CONTRACT FOR CONSTRUCTION.
The contract for constructing the
main line of the railroad from Paddy's
land to Greenwood, a distance of eight
miles, together with a spur one mile
long from Mooslc to the two Jermyn
collieries at Old Forge was awarded
to the John 'Shields company, extensive
railroad contractors and work was
commenced April 1 last. Between 500
and 600 men were employed and the
work was prosecuted with such rap
idity that the road would have been
ready to open Sept. 1 had the material
for the steel viaducts arrived In time.
Paddy's land, where the Connecting
road Joins the main line, Is a wild pic
turesque spot, high up on the moun
tains, four miles southeast of Mooslc.
From the point where the road begins
to Its terminus at Mooslc there Is an
average down grade of 1 85-100 feet to
tho hundred. Along the line there are
some heavy cuts and deep fills. The
cuts were principally through solid
stone that had to be blasted with
powder. At one place, about one mile
from Mooslc, Is a cut through a hard
substance that bears a strong resem
blance to Iron ore. The work all along
the road was of such a nature that It
had to be done by hand. Steam tools
could not be used to good advantage.
The road Is well ballasted from one
end to the other and eighty-pound rails
On the main line, near Mooslc, over
the valley through which the Spring
Brook runs, is a steel viaduct 1,400 feet
long and seventy-five feet above the
center of the valley. Delay in receiving
the material for this has prevented the
opening of the road. It Is now being
rapidly constructed and will, It Is ex
pected, be completed Oct. 1. The larg
est span Is the one over tho Spring
Brook. It Is 135 feet In length. The
viaduct carries tho road not only over
the Spring Brook, but tracks of the
Erie and Wyoming Vnlley and Spring
Brook railroad as well.
VIADUCT ON THE SPUR.
Another viaduct on the spur running
to the Jermvn collieries is to be six
hundred feet long. It will be fifty feet
above the channel of the Lackawanna
river. This viaduct will also span the
tracks of the Delaware and Hudson
and Bloomsburg railroads. No work
has been done on it yet. Otherwise the
Bpur Is completed.
At tho Junction of thl3 road with the
main line, about half a mile north of
Mooslc, Is the stone round-house for
the road, which Is capable of housing
eight engines. Alongside of It nro the
coal pockets and water tank for sup
plying the engines. The road complete
will cost about $500,000 and will take
coal from several collieries at Green
wood, the present terminus of the
road, and tho product of the two Jer
myn collieries at Old Forge. It Is not
Improbable that tho road will be ex
tended to Wlnton, which Is the termi
nus mentioned In the company's rhar
ter. Tho New York, Susquehanna and
Western takes tho coal from several
collieries In the vicinity of Wlnton and
It Is only reasonable to suppose that
when tho construction of the connect
ing road was decided upon It was the
Intention to reach all the collieries.
Whether the road will pass through
Sernnton and mako a bid for passen
ger traffic, or swing around It on the
east or west mountain and bo used only
for carrying coal, remains to bo seen.
Captain John Shields, the president
of the company that is constructing
the road, Is well-known In this city.
Ills home Is at Flemington, N. J., and
he has been engaged In railroad con
struction work for years. In the early
days of tho war he raised a company
of soldiers In Carbon county and went
to the front as Its captain. Ho was
shot through the leg, near the thigh,
early In the war and In the battle of
Gettysburg had his windpipe punctured
by a ball which It was supposed had
ended his career. Such was not the
case, however. An operation was per
formed upon him and ho recovered. He
still carries the ball about In his body
as a souvenir of the battle. It is lo
cated somewhere In the region of tho
shoulders. The medical records of the
war do not show another case where
a man wounded as Captain Shields was
Tho work on tho connecting road was
1 done under the Immediate supervision
of his son, John Shields, Jr., and W. L.
Swetland, who has been one of tho
company's trusted employes for a num
ber of years.

Description of the Now Structure
nnd Outline of Its Scope.
Lackawanna township's handsome
new high Bchool at Old Forgo was
formally opened yesterday afternoon.
Tho attendant exercises were both
highly appropriate and Interesting.
Nearly all the directors and teachers
of the district and big representation
of the tax payers were present, and
tho occasion was signally honored by
the presence of Dr. Stewart, deputy
state superintendent of public Instruc
tion. The programme opened with a vocal
selection by the J. E. Watklns quar
tette, of Taylor. Then Rev. E. L. San
tee, of the Old Forge Methodist Epis
copal church, offered prayer. The cer
emony of formally delivering and ac
cepting the keys was assigned to P.
Rudrauff, one of the architects, and
Samuel Baker, president of the school
board, the Inability of cither to be pres
ent caused the omission of this num
ber. The supervising principal of the dis
trict and principal of the high school,
Hon. Frank R. Coyne, gave, ns the
address he was assigned to make, a
very Interesting sketch of the history
of the school district from Its Incep
tion to the present time, and also a
brief resume of the history of the high
There were addresses also by Dr.
Stewart, county superintendent, J. C.
Taylor, Rev. W. G. Frlnk. Rev. T. M.
Furey and William Repp, president of

Among the other numbers were se
lections by an Instrumental quartette,
consisting of John, May and Margaret
Cosgrove and May Fletcher; recitations
by Misses May Broadhead and Ger
trude Simmons nnd a vocal solo by
George Powell, his wife accompanying
on the piano.
Tho new school building Is located
on Main street. In Old Forge, and Is
a very pretentious frame structure.
It contains ten school rooms and an
auditorium, Is built after an extreme
ly attractive design, and Is filled with
all modern Improvements, Including
the Smead-Wllls system of heating and
ventilating. It has been in course of
construction for Just a year, and as It
stands represents a cost of $20,000.
Rudrauff & Davey were the architects
and Zlba Van Loon the builder.
As yet there is but little demand for
a high school grade, but it Is expected
that In time the faculty of the school
will be called upon to devote much of
Its attention to the higher studies.
Those of tho pupils who nre fitted to
take up such studies, however, are
provided for even now and in fact
have been for several years past.
FACILITIES TO BE INCREASED.
The facilities, however, will be in
creased and after Monday next, when
the school term begins, a pupil need
not go outside of tho district to se
