and divorce are gely mingled.
Honesdale was the county seat < f
Wayne county in 1843, at which time a
frame Court-houso was erected. This
building was fully adequate to the needs
of the county at the time, but as popa..
lation and buiness increased the lawyers
and judges claimed that there was need
of a larger and better one. Every
movement on the part of the authorities
to have a new Court-house erected was
opposed by the peopleatlarge, the popu
lation of the county being chiefly edn
posed of farmers. Finally a Grand Jury
was drawn which recommended the
building of a new Court-house, aid in
1876 the work was commenced by order
of the court. The building was to cost
g160,000. The movement met with bit.
ter opposition throughout the county,
and ambitious politicians took aulvani
tage of the feeling to foster and increase
the opposition. Party lines were lost
might of. There were no parties except
the " Court-house" and "anti-Court.
The leading member of the Board of
County Commissioners was Thomas
Brown. He was a prosperous and ex
perienced builder and contractor, living
near Honesdale. The charge of super
intending the work on the new Court
house fell to him. He set his heart on
the completion of the building, as he
was ambitious to leave it as a monlimenlt
of his skill and judgnment. Among the
leaders in the anti-Court-houso part.
was William Bartwell, a wealthy fanier
of anl interior township. lie was as de
tornined that the building should not
be ereeted under the supervision of tihe
CommissioIers thwn in ofliceo as Commnis
sioner Brown was that it should be.
Injunctions and legal proceedings of
every kind were obtained and brought
against the Commissioner at the insti
gation of the anti-Court-houso leaders,
and the work was greatly hampered mai
delayed. On the local election of 1877

imed freely of their timo and means to

by an overwhelming majority.
The result was followed quickly by

flow the Tourtete Appear to the Denizens
[From the Cheyenne (Wyoming) Leader.]
Tliey come in crowds at this season.
Sometimes they are members of the
peaceftl order of the Young Men's flu
manity Union and their families; some
times members of the semi-miihtary or
ganization, the B3ayonet and Sword S0
eiet.y, and their families; sometimes they
are 3taymond excu.sioniste but by the
time they reach Oh eyoune they have the
travel-worn appearance common to tour
ists. Local Western travelers get off
the train and tramp it up town; commer
cial travelers toke the 'bus with the
cattle men from Texas, and are driven
to the 'hotela, but the tourists pour out
of the sleeping cars and make direct for
the railroad dining-room. The men
wear black caps, pulled down on their
heads till the bands touch their shirt
collars, and dusters so long as to almost
sweep the ground, and which are oreased
and limp as if they had been used te
sweep the car floor. One man tourist
always looks like every other man tour
ist.. His costume is a disguise, just as
his manners, talk, and way of living on
a tour give him an identity different
from that which belongs to him at home.
But if the nen are commonplaco and
uninteresting, it must be said of women
tourists that they look dowdyish. They
wear on their heads shapeless "walking'
hats of a style fashionable soen years
ago, adorned with dull-hed artifleial
flowers, which have been mnshed flat
while the wearers have been lolling
against the backs of ear-seats or on con
vetient shoulders. ''he woman tourist
vh' picks her way in slippers from the
ear to the (inting hal, or who clumps
along in her hlusband's rubbers, also
wears a (luster. It is ''mussed'' into a
thonusand lmps and folds, and has
streaks of dust and cinders on it running
in every direction. Thero arc two char
a"teristics, aside from s'lovenliness, which
mark the woman tourist. The first is
tlint her face is utterly devoid of com
plexion, and the seeodil that instead of
1-inking she always sluekl(:.

years as members of the same house

in most cases, no longer than it takes ni
express train to rin to Chevenne from
-tle wilds of Jersey or Egyptian Illinois.
in the dining-ron, they clatter the
dishes, "hisst" at, the waitress, rattle
knives and forks, serape chairs noisily
on the floor, talk from one tablo to an
other a dozen att a time, and make a hed

DANGERS OF BURGLING.

It is the general impression atiotlg

a hundred but would desert before he
would go into a battle, if he were a sol

not half as dangerous as braking on a
freight train, working around a printing
press, or holding a position on a police
force. The mat' who goes to a Sunday
picnic, with an excursio:l from a city,
takes his life in his hand, and is in more
danger than any burglar is in entering a
house at night. The boy who at tends
an elevator in a factory, or the girl who
works a sewing machinc in an establislh
mont where shafting and helts run over
head, is in more danger of being killed
than a burglar is in the practice of his
Not long since, a citizen, who was
I roubled with heart disease, was lying
awake after midnight, when he heard a
burglar effecting an entrance at a win
dow of the sleeping room. Being lone
some he kept still and allowed the visitor
to come in, thinking he might be good
company. As the burglar entered the
room, the citizen raised up In bed,
placedi a pillow in front of him, pointed
a long bony finger at the intruder, and
told him to hol up his hands. Tho
burglar did so, and in one hand was a
revolver. The citizen told the burglar
to throw that revolver out of a window
into the street, which was dono at once,
and it could be heard to drop into the
road. The burglar trembled like a leaf,
and begged the citizen with heart disease
to sparo his life, as he was the sole sup
port of an old mother. The citizen told
him ho need have no fear, and ordered
him to turn up the gas, which he did,
and the two men looked at each other.
The burglar was a sharp-faced boy of
twenty, a coward if there ever was one.
The citizen told him to bring a pack of
cards off a stand, and sit down on the
foot of the bed. The citizen shuflted
the cards and dealt out a couple of
hands, and told the burglar lie would
play him a game of seven up to see
winch was the biggest fool, and to allow
I ho visitor to collect his nei yes, which
w ero badly shattered. At first he trem
bled so he could hardly play. but finally
got interested in the game and forgot,
apparently, where he was. The citizen
apologized for not having clothes on
that would be more appropriate, and
otherwise made the burglar feel at home,
and after they had played a couple of
gaines of seven up, and the third had
been sawed off on the burglar, the citi
zen began to talk to him about his pro
fession. Said he:
"Now, 1 have heard a great deal about
burglars, but. I never saw onn until you
dropped in this evening, and I must
thanl you for helping me to pass ar.
evening that otherwise might have been
lonely. I have always regarded burglars
as men who were brave even to rashness,

with your revolver, and I pointed my
finger at you, which I assure you was
ntoi loaded, you held up your hands as
