A NEAR PANIC ON TRAIN
Oil From Car Lamps Caused Women
to Become Hysterical accessary
to Stop I). & II. Train to Avert
Disaster.
The overboiling of burning oil
from the lamps on the passenger
train southbound from Mnevah to
Carbondale on Thanksgiving Day
caused tho passengers to become
hysterical and a panic was averted
by the stopping of the train.
One or two of the lamps com
menced to smoke and the brakeman
turned them down. He then stepped
Into another car to attend to other
lamps, which were also smoking and
when he returned to the first car all
the lamps were "acting up." In
some manner tho oil was forced out
of the lamp and appeared to be
boiling from tho bottom of th
lamps. Tho oil had become ignited
and groat drops of liquid fire wero
falling to the car floor. Women
commenced to scream and In order
to prevent a panic it was necessary
to pull tho cord to stop the train.

THE SPIRIT OF SPUNK.
People hesitate about going to a
sanatorium because they think that
they are gloomy places. They
Imagine rows of wan, sadfaced con
sumptives lying on rest chairs amid
an atmosphere of melancholy.
If you .feel this way and are ad
vising consumptives not to go to a
sanatorium, read "Spunk," a little
magazine published by the patients
at tho State Sanatorium at Mont
Alto; or better yet, visit the Sana
torium Itself. Were it not for tne
occasional allusions to tuberculosis,
you would think that "Spunk" was a
boarding school or a college maga
zine. It is full of Jokes and tales
of Sanatorium life. Everything is
goodhumored. Thero is no grumb
ling. It is the healthiest, most
cheerful magazine imaginable.
Visit tho Sanatorium and you will
understand why. There Is so much
sunshine, tho buildings aro so at
tractive, and tho nurses and doctors
are so ready to enter into the life
of the patients that no one can feel
gloomy.
The patients are fighting for their
lives, and they know it. Do not
mistake that. But they have the
spirit of Spunk, and though often
they aro facing death, they do it
with a smile so that tho patients be
side them will not lose courage.
The Sanatorium is your best
friend. It Is a good place to bo.
Show the spirit of Spunk and go
there if it 13 necessary. Karl de
Schweinitz, Executive Secretary,

RED LETTER DAY COMING.
Thero was reference In this col
umn a few days ago to the fact that
it is somewhat surprising that some
thing definite has not been done to
date. In the matter of providing a
street car system that would em
brace Hawley, Honesdale and oth
er towns of tho vicinity. Mention
of some plan of that kind was con
tained in a quotation from a Hones
dale exchange. That borough has the
ambition to get in touch by trolley
with tho towns of the Delaware val
ley, and secure tho advantage of
their trade. From Wayne comes
statement just now to the effect that
tho parties Interested In tho pro
posed lino between Hawley and
Seelyvillo agreed to tako over tho
rights and privileges of the Hawley
and Honesdale Street Railway com
pany. One of tho New York cap
italists who visited Honesdale, is
said to have remarked that If a sat
isfactory arrangement of tho Inter
ests of these two companies could bo
made that work on the lino would
possibly start in tho Spring. What

supremo importance or caving
through the established agencies or
America for the kingdom of God,
through tho established agencies of
tho church. The problems of the
church wero dealt with at some
length separately, such as tho prob
lem of tho Indian, who number
295,000; tho Negro, who In 1010,
number over nine million; the Asia
tics of whom there aro 142,000 In
America; tho immigrants, who are
coming to America at tho rate of a
million a year; tho saloon and tem
perauco reform and Mormonism.
Such nro some of tho problems of
to-day In America, which American
churches aro facing.
Dr. Guild affirmed that if the
church of America cannot work out
a solution to those problems, surely
no human institution can. If the
church does not boIvo these prob
lems for America, surely no human
institution will, but tho church of
Christ can solve them. Tho church
of Christ is the greatest factor in
human history. It's tho power of
God encompassing the globo to
sanctify and enoblo everything it can
touch. In America, there are today
22,000,000 church members; church
adherents, 60,000,000; Sunday
school enrollment, 10,000,000; or
dained ministers, 102,000; church
organizations 215,000; Church build
ings 210,000; seating capacity, 60,
000,000; value ot church property,
$1,00,000,000. Yes, the church of
America is the mightiest army of
America, and probably influences
more or less directly the majority of
the majority of the population of the
country. "An Ideal America free
from every ill and devoted to every
good cause awaits the reign of
Christ in every heart in America."
The preacher concluded his dis
course by three practical suggestions.
First It is the duty and privilege
of church members to thoroughly
Inform themselves on tho entire
subject, namely the power of the
church and tho problem it faces..
Second To contribute In his mens
uro to tho expenses Involved in tho
work of evangelizing America.
Third It is our privllego io pray

The discourse was concluded with
quotation of the order given by
tho admiral to his fleet In Manila
Bay. When the flagship signalled
tho batteries of Cavlto have opened
fire, ho commanded "Steam Ahead."
The command was obeyed and Into
tho heart of Manila Bay moved the
American fleet flying tho Stars and

"Tho first seed corn 'gospel train'

laughed at scientific farming and at
agricultural schools. But thoso who
know of the results of this work In
Iowa do not laugh now.
"In tho last eight years wo have
increased the average yield for the
State three bushels an acre. The
counties .average 100,000 acres in
corn, which means for tho ninety
nine counties an added crop yearly
of 29,700,000, all due to better seed
and better methods."
The Harvester company, to quote
one of its officials, intends " to give
Professor Holden to the nation."

fined to telling the farmers how
Now it Is proposed to show them.
During the last two years, under

The shots wero not removed. The
boy luckily escaped serious injury
and loss of sight for two of the
small shots penetrated tho flesh
bovo tho boy s eyes.
MRS.
CONCERNING POTATOES.
A most discouraging feature
of
tho so-called bumper crops of the
East this year has been the tre-
imndous rot In potatoes. More
or less of this late blight strikes
our potatoes every year. However
If the weathor Is dry tho spores can
not develop and, therefore, little
damage is caused. Thl3 year during
tho period in which tho lato blight
usually strikes us, tho weather was
wet and hot and gavo Ideal condi
tions for tho development of these
little spores, and this accounts for
tho prevalence of rot in the crop.
It not only decreases tho yield but
also decreases the confidence of the
buyers In tho crop and so holds
down prices.
A regular and constant spraying
would have partly, If not entirely,
prevented this rot. Many farmers
have raised tho objection that It Is
hard to get on high land with a
spraying machine becauso of the ex
cessive moisture, and some have
complained that It Is absolutely Im
possible to get on muck land In the
wet season, but some of our farmers
have actually proven tho practical
sldo of spraying this yoar by keeping
at It consistently oven when tho
weather was wot.

IRISH WERE INVENTORS
OF TELEGRAPHY, IS CLAIM
Washington, Nov. 28. Tho Morse
code, by which messages are flashed
over tho vast network of wires
throughout the civilized world, was
not tho Invention of Samuel F. B
Morse, but was of Irish origin, be
ing the old Gaelic dot and dash al
phabet in use as early as 1150. This
declaration by Prof. James Money
before tho Archaeological Society
of Washington at its meeting in the
National Museum has stirred up
heated controversy. Prof. Money
decalred that tho Gaelic alphabet, or
the Ogcm system, as It was known
was actually tho basis of the so
called Morso code. Ho insisted his
contention was fully carried out by
tho records of tho ancient Irish peo
pie as found In stone and wooden
carvings.
" Thero wore seventeen letters In
tho Gaelic alphabet," ho declared
" and they began with one dash
went up to live dashes, then from
live dashes down to one dash and
then began tho dots very much the
same as the Morso alphabet used In
telegraphy."

partmeiit Busy Working: Out
Details.
A new law adding the parcels post
fcaturo to the postal service, was
passed at the last session of con
gress and was approved by Presi
dent Taft. Just how the new ser
vlco will affect the Honesdalo post
office cannot bo stated Just now but
It Is certain that Postmaster M. B.
Allen will receive instructions any
day now as to tho establishing of
tho new delivery service the first
of tho year.
Under tho parcels post dollvery
system persons can go to tho post
office and receive and forward pack
ages by mail instead of sending them
by express. The weight of pack
ages must not bo over eleven pounds
however and must ho kept down to
a certain size. The return card of
tho sender must also bo placed In a
conspicuous place on tho package.
One of the features of tho new law
Is that a special parcels post stamp
must be used on the packages and
If tho stamps now In use bo placed
on them they will be held for post
ago as the postofflce authorities In
sist that the special stamp be used.
Tho postal department at Wash
ington will be busy from now until
the first of the year in working out
tho details of the new service and
special equipment such as scales,
tapes and stamp seals must be se
cured and sent out to each of tho
00,000 postolllces In the United
States.
The new law provides for the re
ceiving of parcels at all postoffices
and branch offices and also such sta
tions as the postofflce department
shall designate. This means that the
service will be In use in Honesdale.
Tho steadily Increasing business
at the Honesdale office long ago
taxed the capacity of their old
quarters In the Foster building so
that they were obliged to removo to
the City Hall where tho larger space
greatly facilitates the handling of
tho malls and so that when the par
cels post service is established In
Honesdale there will undoubtedly be
pletny of room for its proper handling.
HOW THANKSGIVING
WAS OBSERVED.
Honesdale Gives Thanks Union
Services in Presbyterian Church
Special Services in German Luth
eran and German Catholic
Churches.
The people of Honesdale did their
part in rendering thanks to tho Al
mighty for the numerous blessings,
both spiritual and material, that
have been showered upon us the past
year, and also for the bright pros
pects of the future, for Honesdale
certainly has a bright future ahead.
In tho churches special services
were held. Thero were Union
Thanksgiving services In the Presby
terian church and n forceful sermon
was preached by Rev. Will II. HUler
of the Methodist church. Four
churches joined in tho union ser
vices. They were the Baptist, Pres
byterian, Methodist, Episcopal and
the Grace Episcopal. Rev. Whltta
ker of the latter denomination was
unable to be present, being prevent
ed by illness.
Rev. Hiller took for his first text
"What Shall I Render Unto tho Lord
For All of His Benefits Toward Mo,
116 Psalm, 6th verse. His second
text was "Thanks Bo to God For
His Unspeakable Gifts," Second
Corinthians, 9:15.
Rev. Hiller began by citing the
national blessings and the abundant
harvests all over tho land as a great
thing to bo thankful for. Ho spoke
of tho gift of a homo and the lovo
of Christ as being tho greatest bless
ing of all to bo thankful for on that
day. He closed his excellent sermon
with an appeal to every ono to be.
thankful for the blessings of Jesus
Christ. In tho German Lutheran
church Rev. Miller preached a splen
did Thanksgiving sermon .at 10;30
In German. Ho took for his text.
'Bless the Lord, O My Soul, and
Forget Not His Benefits," 103rd
Psalm. There was a largo attend
ance. A special mass was held in
St. Mary Magdalen's church at 9
o'clock yesterday morning. There
was a large attendance and Ur. J.
W. Balta delivered a splendid sermon.
Thero wero no special services In
St. John's R. C. church yesterday.
Father John O Toolo preached a
Thanksgiving sermon last Sunday.
