What Is It' Why Is It?
The townsman, If he ever thinks
ot it at all remembers vaguely that
thero Is such a thing but that it
holds Itself aloof, wrapped In awful
mystery It Is not a concrete reality,
hence these words of explanation.
There Is a free library In Hones
dale found on the first floor of the
High school building. Its main ob
ject is to inspire every one with an
Incentivo for real reading. Uy that
is meant not the kind that we do un
der pressure, our thoughts resisting
to concentrate nor yet the superfi
cial variety known, best to us per
haps through certain magazines
which hold our attention for the mo
ment and leave us with a rueful con
sciousness of absolutely wasted time
but the sort of reading we truly
like, a keen enjoyment while it

Tho four-year-old suit of J. Wes
ley Hull and Dnniel Hull, of Mt.
Pleasant, Wayno county, executors
and trustees of tho estate of Har
riet Amanda Spencer, against Jennie
Bowie, of North Scranton. was sot-
! tied Tuesday in court when it came
to trial bofore Judge A. T. Searle of
Honesdale, who is sitting in common
picas court in Scranton this week.
When the trial got fairly started
Judge Searle brought all parties to
gether and suggested a settlement
that was satisfactory to both sides.
Mrs. Amanda Spencer, wife of
George Spencer, owned a property
with 150 feet frontage on North
Main avenue, the property running
back 150 feet to Putnam street. She
died in 1907 and left the place in
trust to her husband and to her
I brother, J. Wesley Hull, and his son,
. Daniel Hull. They wcro named as
executors as well as 'trustees.
I Under the will the executors were
directed to place her husband In pos
session with his having right to dis
pose of it in whole or in part. ' He
lived to April, 190S, when ho died at
tho age of eighty-six years. Ho left
a will bequeathing to Miss Bowie,
sixty feet frontage of the property
and the house, which had stood for
fifty years on the plot. Miss Bowie
was a foster child of tho Spencers,
but was never adopted by sanction
of the court.
When the estate got into Orphans'
court, Miss Bowie put In a claim for
$2,6SG as her earnings as a steno
grapher, which she maintained went
to support Spencer in his old age.
Judge Sando allowed the conveyance
of the land as consistent with the
terms of Mrs. Spencer's will, hut the
executors appealed and the Supreme
court sustained the appeal. The
dispute then went into the common
pleas fjr trial by jury. Scranton

The first snowfall always surprises
us, just as the annual recurrence of
a birthday does, with its pitiless re
minder of approaching winter; but
the snowfall of last Saturday did
not arrive before its time. During
the past eleven years snow has fallen
as early as October 11, never in
that time has snowfall been de
ferred as lato as November 1st in
this part of the world.
We have been through a queer
summer. Last winter was a queer
winter. The summer before was
outlandish. Very likely tho next
four months will bo out of the ordi
nary. The weather is always queer.
It would bo queer If It wero not
queer. We have warrant for hop
ing, or, If we prefer, we may hope
without warrant, that the winter of
1912-1913 will bo peculiar in Its
mercifulness to tho coal bin. Post
Buck Killiam, one ot Hawley's
crack shots, went gunning a few
days ago. After being In the woods
a short time he heard his trusty dog
barking lustily. Going in tho direc
tion from whence came the repeated
barks Mr. Killam was encountered
by a largo catamount. The ferocious
wild cat Jumped for the dog, but tho
latter being a good dodger managed
to keep his distance. Seeing tho
green eyes of tho catamount, as .they
wero cast upon him, Mr. Killiam shot
wild, but hit tho cat. Tho cat re
treated and took to .the woods, dis
appearing in a ledge. This is an
Instance when Buck Killiam didn't
kill 'em.

At a meeting of the Town Coun

was adopted by the Honesdale Board
of Health, and was unanimously
adopted by the Town Council as
a resolution this day, viz,
At a meeting of the Board of
Health held at the City Hall on
November 20, 1912, the following
resolution was unanimously adopted:
"Resolved that we strongly rec
ommend that all residents of Hones
dale and vicinity who have not been

his or her own physician, who would
decide tho necessity of such vaccina

Animals often are responsible for
tho spread of disease. The rat fre
quently brings with it cholera; the
cow through its milk, tuberculosis;
tho fly, typhoid fever. Many con
tagious diseases are brought into
tho home by tho dog and the cat.
It Is all right to havo such house
hold pets as tho cat and dog If com
mon senso is used in selecting and
taking care of them. Do not make
a pet of tho tramp cat. People of
ten allow their children to kiss tho
dog or the cat and sometimes do It
themselves. This not only is fool
ish, but also lays one open to the
attack of such disease germs as
these animals may be carrying.
If contagious disease attacks your
home, quarantine tho dog and the
cat as you would any member of
your family. Seo also that these ani
mals do not wander into places
whoro disease exists. Remember
that animals are just as likely to be
carriers of diseaso as human be
ings, and that they should bo taken
caro of accordingly. Karl do Sch
wolnitz, Executlvo Secretary, Penn

Dear Sir:

M. J. Hanlan, Supreme Auditor of
tho American Fraternal Association,
at the time of the auditing of tho

fit to write of Mr. Wasman's ac
counts and work, as follows:

I have carefully compared all the en-

funds of tho association aro collect

with tho laws governing the samo,
as expressed In tho Constitution and

and vouchers of the association

in January, 1908, and again In Jan

correct. We signed a form which
had been prepared and of which I
presume the above is a copy. We
wero not called upon to audit the
