In recent Issues of our county

their plan to increase the efficiency
of 'what is now a splendid nucleus

A challenge to State Highway
Commissioner BIgelow to debate
questions of road building with Wil
liam T. Creasy, master of the State
Grange, was Issued recently by the
'legislative committee of the state
grange which was In session last
week, discussing its legislative pro
gram. The details and questions are
left to Messrs. BIgelow and Creasy to
The committee also recommended
tho following legislation to tho gen
eral assembly; Direct election of
United States senators, a senatorial
preference primary; equalization of
taxation by relieving real estate or
increase of state appropriations for
schools and roads; 'payment of the
minimum teachers' salary for the

propriation to townships for roads
up to $25 per mile per annum; equal
taxation of all classes of subjects:
'An honest initiative, referendum and

State college; prohibition, of use of
any coloring matter In oleomargar
lno. Regarding liquor legislation tho
resolutions are as follows:
" Since all parties aro agreed on
the Initiative and referendum a local
option bill should be passed. We
heartily second tho approval by Gov.
Tener of a law requiring clubs that
wish to dispense liquor to take a li
cense tho same as hotels. And, fur
ther, we demand the passage of a
rigid anti-treating law. Peddling of
liquors should be prohibited as cov
ered by house bill (No. 6 and the
courts should fix the hours of open
ing and closing of bars.
Recommendations on national leg
islation were mado as follows
Perfection of the parcels post; re
moval of tariff on all articles con
trolled by monopolies; a graduated
income tax; physical valuation of
railroads; legislation to make manu
facture of denatured alcohol possi
ble; and conservation of timber and
mineral lands and water power. Op
position was voiced to central bank
legislation; ship subsidy, federal

At the Lyric on Wednesday, Feb.
5th, Jos. M. Gaites will present to
the theatregoers of Honesdale John
Hyams and Leila Mclntyre In the de
lightful musical play "The Girl
of My Dreams." This highly suc
cessful musical production which
had its Initial presentation in Chi
cago three seasons ago, enjoying a
twelve weeks' run, is said to be one
of the most delightful and refined
musical plays seen in years and a
worthy successor to Gaites famous
"Three Twins." It has also filled
highly successful engagements in all
the principal cities of the country
including 'Boston, Philadelphia and
New York City.
The story of the piece tells of a
bachelor's downfall before the
charms of a demure little Quaker
girl. These roles will be those of
the principals, John Hyams and
Leila Mclntyre. The bachelor Is
much of a club man and has the
cynical attitude of his class toward
the feminine sex. The piece is chuck
full of catchy musical numbers, "I'm
Ready to Quit and 'Be Good," effec
tively rendered by Mr. Hyams and
Miss Mclntyre's delightful "Doclter
Tinkle Tinker" being the most pop
ular. The supporting company
numbers among the principals Alice
Hills, Francis Galllard, Neil Burns,
Silvia Frankie, Delia Nlven, Irving
Brooks, Frank McEwen, Adele Bou
Iais and Joseph Harris together
with a splendid male chorus and the
original De Luxe Pony Ballet.. The

TARRH. From the Paterson, N. J., Guardian.
Ninety-four per cent, of all the
diseases with which tho human sys
tem Is afflicted, originate or turn In
to catarrh; assuring himself of this
fact, Dr. 'Barker gavo the matter of
catarrh his entire time and study,
and after several years of tho most
thorough research for a remedy
which would positively euro catarrh
In any form, he prepared a prescrip
tion which 'ho used in his private
practice without a single failure of
any case of catarrh he treated. Af
ter a considerable amount of persu
asion he consented to put the per
scriptlon up in convenient form, so
that sufferers from this terrible dis
ease could purchase the treatment at
a nominal cost. Tho prescription
will be found in most any drug store
in tho United States under the label
Bloodlne. In a recent introductory
sale in the city of Now York, more
than 20,000 bottles were sold in a
single week.
I am so confident that Bloodlne
will cure anyone afflicted with ca
tarrh that I will gladly supply It to
any patient on a positive guarantee
to cure, or money will be as cheer
fully refunded as it is taken. If
your druggist does not keep Bloodlne
you can be supplied by The Bloodino
Laboratories, Boston, Mass., at 50c
a bottle, or six bottles for $2.50.
