It appeals that after they left heie they decided to go to WIIkes-Barre tn quest of the desired license. The gill's father had anticipated tills and sent 1 telephone message to the Lui-eine clerk of the comts, similar to the message he had sent to Cleik Daniels. When they appealed the clerk was prepaied for them and after they had filled out an application setting foith that they wero both over twenty-one and that they resided In Pittston, the clerk pro duced a docket showing that the girl had been indentuied by the Luzcino couits to Freeman Lamed, of Moscow", in 1S91 and that she was then only thliteen eais of age. There was no getting around these facts and the couple had to leave without the much coveted license. What subsequent coiuse they pursued has not as jet developed. - CLERK WAS PARTICULAR.

The prosecutor wns Michael Mellnlo, grandfather of Hums' 3- ear old stepson, Tommy McIIale. Tho younaster Is a son of Mrs. Uurns by her llrst husband, who was a son of McIIale. Strange to say the only evidence on which the defendant could be held and was held was given by himself His wife was an eyewitness of the occur ences upon which the charges nre based, but under the law of this stnte a woman cannot testify against her husband. The lest of the testimony was given by nclghbcns and was hear say, which Is not ndinlssable either. Hums could have kept quiet at the hearing, and then the case would have to be dismissed, as n defendant Is not obliged to Incriminate himself, but he made nn admission that caused him to be bound over In the sum of $200 for his appearance tit coutt. Tho nelghbois nre icsponslble for the arrest Mrs. Hums vvas noticed ciy Ing about the house for three davs In suctession, and when they began to Inquire In a neighborly way about her tioubles, pin?

SMOKE IS PROVING A GREAT NUISANCE -.... LARGE CITIES TRYING TO RID THEMSELVES Or IT. Use of Soft Coal Is Responsible for tho Dirty, Smudgy Appearance of Many of Our Large Cities Action Taken by Hon. John E. Rocho to Rid Scranton of the Smoke Nuis ance Is In Line With Similar Ac tion in Other Cit es. Tho action of Hon John H Roche In Introducing In select council a meiis 111 e to prevent the use of soft coal In this, tho heart of the authiaclte coal region, has caused no little comment. This measure Is in line with the ac tion of bodies that hnve In charge the making of laws for many ot our Inige cities, where the smoke which Is pio duced by the use ot soft coal, has pioved an Intolerable nuisance. The board of health of New Yoik has put Itself squarely on recoul against the use of soft coal In that city nnd Is doing what It can to stump out tho nulrance. The New Yoik Tilbune, which has t then nn nctlvo part against the In cienMug smoke nuisance In New York, says, lelatlvo to the promise ot the Long Island lallroad to use hard coal: "The larger use of bard coal on the Long Island lallroad is to bo (Com mended, and n hope expressed that one of thpse days hard coal will be used altogether on not only that load, but on every road that carries passengers tint! pretends to give nn.v thing like flist-cliiss accommodation. No doubt It will cost the roads more to use hind than soft coal No doubt, ulso, It costs more to ptovlde cushioned seats than II would to piovhtc wooden benches It costs more to nuke passpngeis coni foi table than to leave them In dlscom foit. Hut there Is such a thing ns ad ditional cxpendlluie that Is In the end n source of profit And there nre such things as common comforts and de cencies that should be assuied to the public by law if they can be In no otberwaj " In an edltorlnl the Morning Tele graph, of New York, has this to say. 'Theie Is an evei lnci easing number of muiky sti earns of soft coal smoke observable all aiound Gi eater New Yoik The dense, thick smudgy smoke blackens and defiles all that It touches. Time was when theie was no soft coal burned in' New Yoik The icmaikablo clear, iildescent ntmosphere vvas one of the city's most famous attributes. Ii Is so largely still. Hut, if the burn ing of soft eonl continues to lncicaso as It has In the past few jeais, then the famed clear atmosphere of New Yoik will become a moie tiaditlon, Theie are ordinances against the bum In of soft coal unless n proper smoke consumei Is used. The oidlnance com pelling all burners of soft coal to use these consumers Is one which should bo nfcieed tn the letter. If these Piter hiiodb are attached to chimneys, then tho ral'unce of the soft coal Is abated i,ienti.. It Is a pity that the greed to save money has brought soft coal Into such geneinl use In a city where It .is unknown. Hut ns such Is the sad f ft. It lemalns foi the authoiitles to see that evciy piovlslon be cairled out to abate the nuisance as fai as pos sible." DECLARED A COMMON SCOLD. But Her Daughter Now Alleges She Is Insane.
