the best basket ball game of the

ERIE SYSTEM IS TO HE DIVIDED
An Important change has been
made in the Erie Railroad system.
The road has been divided Into two
systems which will be known as lines
East and lines West.
Hereafter there will be two gen
eral managers, one for lines East and
one for lines West, instead of a gen
eral superintendent for the entire
system, which had heretoforo been
the rule. It is not known just
where the dividing line between East
and West will be on the Erie sys'
tern, but It is supposed that Sala
manca will bo the point.
A. J. Stone, formerly general su
perintendent, will be general mana
ger of lines East. R. S. Parsons, a
former superintendent of the Sus
quehanna division, who was trans
ferred to the New York division, will
be assistant general manager of
lines East. J. B. Dixon will be su
perlntendent of the Now York dlvls
ion. H. O. Dunkle will be general
manager and E. W. Batchelder will
be assistant general manager of lines

WARNS CONSTABLES TO DO
Says Cigarettes and Tobacco Selling
to Minors Must Stop Levi De
Grout Urged to Keep Youths
Under 18 Out of l'ool Rooms
Also Sto.,aC!-uday Sell
ing. Court was called Monday after
noon at two o'clock to hear the
report of tho constables and to call
the grand jury. Judge Alonzo T.
Searle presided. As it was the
Monday preceding tho regular term
no other business was heard except
calling the docket.
All constables turned In a report
except John Menhenott, of Bucking
ham, and Charles Dygert, of Da
mascus. There were no violations
of law reported In any of the town
ships of the county, since October.
In Preston township, J. L. Sher
wood, constable, reported that the
O. & W. railroad had erected a snow
fence along the public road between
Orson and Poyntelle which Is a pub
lie nuisance on account of causing
the snow to drift on the road and la-
terfere with travel. Also that the
N. E. Telephone company has a wire
across the road near- the residence
of Owen McNamara which Is so low
that It endangers travel. The judge
Instructed Sherwood to pull the wire
down and other matters would be in
vestigated by the district attorney
In Texas township, the road at
Fortenla was reported In bad con
dition 'between the places of Frank
Mang and Mr. Kuhn.
After the reports were turned In
Judge Searle took occasion to say
that he was very glad to see so lew
violations of the law in the county
but told tho constables that they
must be sure no violations of the
law existed before turning in a
clean report. The judge asked Con
stable DeGroat if all slot machines
had been done away with and he
said they had. He told DeGroat to
pay more attention to the violations
of law going on in Honesdale, es
pecially tho selling of liquor. When
an Intoxicated man Is seen on the
street on Sunday, said he, In such
a condition that he can hardly walk,
It Is fair to presume that the man
got his whiskey In a hotel or sa
loon. He went on to explain the law
regarding the selling of cigarettes to
persons under 21 years of age. No
tobacco can bo sold to a person un
der sixteen years of age. This evil
of selling to minors must be stop
ped. Also there is a law to prohibit
a minor from going into a pool
room. A person under eighteen
years of age is not allowed there by
law and should be kept out or such
places. All dogs should be tagged
and have a collar. The dog law
should bo strictly enforced. The
killing of sheep by dogs costs the
county thousands of dollars every
year. If a dog is found without a
collar or tag or is a nuisance the
constable can kill the dog. A fee of
$1.00 can be collected of the Com
'inissloners of the county if or the kill
ing and burial of a dog. Get busy
men and get rich.
Judge Searle then stated that, as
he had received so many inquiries as
to who is supposed to shovel the
snow off the state roads, he 'had
written to the State Highway De
partment at Harrlsburg and received
a reply to the effect that tho matter
of taking snow off all Sproul main
highways will be attended to by tho
department and that It is not neces
sary for supervisors to have state
roads kept free 'from snow as it was
a part of tho state's work to see
The grand Jurors, twenty in num
ber, were called and George E.
Moase was appointed foreman.
They wore sworn and went out at 3
o'clock. The work for this term of
the grand jury Is very light with
only three or four short cases to
come before them for attention.

WAYNE AGRICULTURE SOCIETY
Elect William L. Ferguson Head of
Society Will Make .Improve-'
ments To Revise Premium
The 51st annual election of the
officers of the Wayne County Agri
culture Society was held Tuesday
morning In the Allen House with the
following directors present: E. P.
Jones, of Ariel; W. E. Perham, NP
agara; E. E. Kinsman, Cherry
Ridge; C. D. Fortnam, Tyler Hill;
T. Y. Boyd, R. J. Murray, J. V.
Starnes, C. J. Smith, E. W. Gam-
mell, T. B. Clark, all of Honesdale.
The directors elected the follow
ing officers which will servo for the
ensuing year: President, W. L. Fer
guson; vice-president, E. P. Jones;
treasurer, J. V. Starnes; secretary,
E. W. Gammell.
Several imporvements were dis
cussed at the meeting also ways and
means for getting a larger attend
ance at the coming fair.
A committee consisting of W. E.
Perham, C. J. Smith, C. D. Fort
nam, E. E. Kinsman and T. B.
Calrk was appointed to submit plans
for a cattle barn at the May meet
ing of the board.
E. E. Kinsman, W. E. Perham
and C. D. Fortnam were appointed
to revise the premium list.
The financial report as presented
by Treasurer Starnes showed that
the society fell behind $500 of the
best fair the society, has ever exper
ienced. This was probably due to
the fact that the aviator disappoint
ed the large attendance on the first
days of the fair, also the old home
celebration and smallpox scare.
It might be stated hero that E. P.
Jones, the vice-president, is one of
the most faithful of directors. Since
his father's absence upon the board
Mr. Jones has been a regular at
tendant, having missed but one
meeting. He has not missed one
session of tho Wayne county fair
since it was incorporated in 1862.
This is a record to be proud of and it
is doubtful whether there are many
others who holds this honor.
