AND MAYFIELD We are now enteritis upon the last day of the year; a year which cannot be recalled. The young, look forward in anticipation to coming years, of man hood and womanhood, and after tnat state Is U(.ssed, one experiences regret at the fast iMtssing, "eats. The first day of January, Jsyc, a large number formed re soluliuns, but how-long were they kept? We have known instances where the good resolutions were broken the first week of the yea.- and even the first day; whit? others stand steadfast for some time, but how many hold out the whole year? We have now about reached the time when it is customary to turn over a new leaf. Tonight some will attend watch meetings, others will attend places of amusement. ' Hut wherever one may be let him ponder over mistakes which have been mnde this year, and of the fast pasnlug time and profit by past experience. We uuote from the Jermyn Press of Dec. 26: "Let all voters as wtll us as pirants for councilmanic honors under stand that no shareholder In the Jer myn & Rushbrook Water company can legally be elected to serve on the coun cil. Apart from this lejal protection voters have the privilege of turning down every candidate who will not pledge himself to support municipal owneishlp of water works." And would add, that we cannot believe as they do, nor do we think it is so. Would you take away the privileges of a citi zen from aspiring to councilmanic hon ors and becoming a member, because h- has Invested a small amount in the water company. No, that would bo impossible, and the only way it can be done. Is by follow inn the last part of the paragraph. What " h claim Is, that any citizen, being a stockholder in the Wuter company or any corporation, is eligible to hold the otlice of councilmun but he has no right to enter into any discussions or vol on any contract, be tween the borough and the corporation of which he Is Interested. William H. James' new home Is about completed, and when It Is finished will be one of the neatest In town. Mr. James' home was burned to the ground about a year ago. Miss Reese, the North Main street milliner, is visiting her parents at Oly phant. The 2-year-old daughter of John Gll hooley. Is very ill of diphtheria at his home on the East Side. Last evening Dr. S. 1). Davis performed Intubation, which undoubtedly will telieve the child. Jacob Hlller, the tax collector, spent yesterday In Scranton. Alfred Helmes returned yesterday from a week's visit in Pittston. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mi'Lutighlln. who have bfen visiting their son at South Canaan, returned home yester duy. Life Is a battle, a struggle, but let us take courage and by divine assist ance we will succeed. Some strange man, claiming Carbon dale as his home, was driving on Main street yesterday afternoon in an In toxicated condition, stooping at the various hotels. While In one of the places his horse took friglit and dashed up Main street, and about an hour af terward performed the same caper. It was a lucky runuway, as there was but very little damage done. The case preferred by W. W. Cul lender, of Ct-rbondule, against Mrs. John Benskl and Mrs. George Ytibeu skl, of the East Side, for tlie with holding of goods with refusul to pay for the same. -was tried before Alderman Baker, of Carbomlule, last evening. The defendants waived a hearing and entered ball for their appearance at court. Attorney P. E. Timlin repre sented the defendants. John 11. Griffiths transacted busitn-tis in Scranton yesterday. The Muylleld school board met In regular session on Tuesday evening. All members wtre present. The fol lowing bills were read and ordered paid: A. E. Tiffany. $i:!0.f5; Baker, Taylor & Co.. $114; C. L. Bell, $.!l; Eugan & o'Donnell, $4.50; labor ami material for heating apparatus, $i:i!i.ii4. Several parents, who had been notified by the board to be present were on hand to present their excuses for the non-attendance of their children ut school whose uses were under 13 years. All parlies gave satisfactory excuses, with the exception of John McLean, who udmitted the boy was under IS years of age, but was willing to send his boy to school providing the hoard would consent to his admittance with out being vaccinated, as he had bee n vaccinated eight years ugo. to which the board replied and said that ..ie state law requites that ftiey shall be vaccinated every seven years. Fur ther than this he tillered no excuse, and on leaving he emphatically naul he would not comply with the law of vaccination. The board informed Mr. McLean that they did not want the boy to be vaccinated at school, but that he could have It done by his fami ly physician; but he would not hearken to any proposition made by the board. After his leaving the room the matter was discussed and finally it was put In the hands of the following committee: W illiams, Cogglns and Walker. The following will be of Interest to those who are not yet fully acquainted with the school law on the above matter: "To parent, guardian or other person in the commonwealth having control or charge of a child or children be tween the ages of 8 and Yi years, shall be required to Kent! such child or chil drcn to a school in which the common English branches ore taught, and such child or child! en shall attend such school during ut least sixteen weeks of each yenr in which schools in their respective districts f hall be In session.
