THE WOMAN SHOPPER The watchword of "Shop Early" is having its effect and there is more consideration than usual as to gifts. uue uimi;uy experiencea in some cities was tnat shoppers found the stores unready. They frequently heard the reply to queries, "We'll have our Christmas goods next week." This is not the case at the present time In Scranton. Our stores are ready for us. They have a big selection of things bought months ago purposely for Christmas patronage. For instance, at Connolly & Wallace's there has been a great dlsplaj of down and wool quilts that are a favorite gift. The coverings this season are exceedingly rich and the luxury of having one of these down quilts is something that appeals tc everybody. At least two young women, who didn't know what to give 'Him" have bought these beautifu! coverings, knowing that the gifts would please. Another practical gift for small expense will be found at me aprun aepu.ninent, wnere a wonderful assortment has been displayed. Some of the prettiest aprons sold at the Home for the Friendless market came from the Connolly & Wallace store. One woman in the Sanderson Pharmacy was buying a present that her friends who was wjth her thought queer. "I don't see why," she retorted. "I know we never have enough hot. water bags in our houses and I'm going to give the dear old soul a good bag. Two years ago Christmas my husband gave me one, along with other things. He got it here and it's perfectly good yet. I'm going to get one like it." Of course, women seldom go down town without buying something at C. S. Woolworth's. It's a habit. The trouble is when you get in there and look around you And euch a lot oi things that you forgot to remember the last time you were there and that you realise you can't do without, so you spend more than you intend. Just now the sets of pretty china are a great attraction. There is one with aj lovely design of tiny roses that anybody would - want. You can get enough pieces to satisfy most housewives for S7, for you don't always want the entire set. Did you ever try those self adjusting brass curtain rods? If you have never almost lost your religion because of the per - ' ndious action of curtain rods that wouldn't stay up, you may not appreciate these that stay put of themselves without screws or sockets and for five cents! .

"The Globe's Datfy Store News" Patrick F. Blewitt. For Tears a Noted Figure In Lire oi Pennsylvania. the son of a sire , who assisted In the laying out of Scranton. Probably no Scranton man has ever lived a life so fraught - with varied activities, romance and results as Pat rick F. Blewitt. Born April 5, 1833, in Ballina, Parish of Ardaugh, county Mayo, Ireland, the son of a civil en gineer, he began early to make a career which was interesting to its close. He attended the parish school and prepar ed for college, but an event occurred in 1849 changed his course rrom college to the seas as a cabin boy on ship. Young Blewitt was prepared to enter college at Maynooth when he disagreed with his father on a matter which - the son considered nis personal anair. There was a girl in the town, whose father had selected young Blewitt to mate and the elder Blewitt approved of the match. The boy was sounded orj the question. He rebelled. His father and the girl's . father insisted that their plans were for the best, but the boy, determined, headstrong . and fixed, fled in rage from the town and went to sea. Landing in Liverpool he enlisted. He was sleeping aboard ship bound on a cruise when the ship caug fire. The crew, including young Blewitt was rescued, taken back to Liver pool, where he immediately boarded another ship about to sail for a cruise of three years. He Lands in Chili. Blewitt remained with the crew un til his ship had touched practically every port and eventually brought him to Chili. There through a coincident of fate, he met a relative of the girl who caused, his leaving home. This acquaintance being naturally glad to welcome a boy from home, and having been in Chill long enough to amass a snug for tune, offered to adopt Blewitt as his legal son and heir If he would remai with him, but the spirit of the rover prevailed. Blewitt, after consideration, declined the offer a, ti t:,en jf - . i i ti to drift to the Hawaiian islands, from there to China and Japan, from where he again shipped on a sailing vessel bound for New York, landing in Am erica in 1851. Father Here Before Him. In the meantime his father, Edward Blewitt, had emigrated from Ireland and was here In the Lackawanna valley. The elder Blewitt settled in what then was known as the "Sand Banks." With Colonel Scranton, Piatt, Amsden and other pioneers of those times he assisted in the laying out of this city, and for bis reward he was urged to name his neighborhood "Blewittville," but would not. Here the son, Patrick F., Joined the father, and according to his recollection of local history, the family were two years in the "Sand Banks" before they could get - hard coal to use as fuel. Makes Lackawanna Surveys. In 1854 Patrick F, Blewitt was engaged as a draughtsman by the Delaware & Hudson company, but he left this to go to the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western .railroad, then building. He assisted; in tbe surveys for the Southern division from Scranton to Washington, N. J. He also helped in the surveys for the Bloomsburg division, extending from Scranton to Northumberland. In the laying out of the Southern division he had charge of the estimates from Scranton to Gouldsboro. Thjee years later in 1867 Patrick F. Blewitt and Catherine Scanlon were married by Rev. Moses Whitty in the the southwest corner of Franklin ave - 1 nue and Spruce street. Soon after his marriage he went to Iowa and. opened the first coal mine in that state at Mt. Pleasant. He just about had the mine started and working when river floods swept through the town and practically washed out the mine. Demand was made for labor at any cost. Blewitt called for men from Scranton and agreed to pay them $10 a day. Many' men left the Sand Banks for the Iowa town, and most of them are still there. , Goes to Oil Fields. ! Finishing his work at the new min. - , j Blewitt went from there to New Or - j leans, where his son, Edward F. Blew - itt, was barn. He followed engineer - i ing there, most in railroad building', but war coming on he returned to Scranton in 1859, but remained, here only a short while. The Civil war about to open he went to Brazil and there helped open railroads running from Rio Janeiro to the interior. n account of the friendship of Brazil for the Confederacy he was unable to get out of that country i until the rebellion had ended, and then j he returned to Scranton. i In the Oil Regions. But he was not through with his j roving. In 1866 or thereabout he and Sam Stevenson, father of George H. Stevenson, civil engineer, went to the oil regions In the western part of Pennsylvania, and there engaged in railroad engineering, laying out roads to the oil districts. He remained there until 1871. Returning he was engaged by the Delaware & Hudsdn company, but quit that company to become mine inspector, succeeding Andrew Nichol, who had resigned. Mine inspecting meant work and constant moving In those, days, His district embraced all of Lackawanna county and all of Luzerne county, north of Pittston. He remained mine inspector for four full terms and part of the fifth term, or twenty. - three years, acquiring In that time a knowledge of coal measures in this valley, which made him an authority on all questions involving that subject. Prior to his becoming mine in spector he was county surveyor of Luzerne county before Lackawanna was created. He resigned that office to accept the inspectorship. It was while he was engineer for the Delaware & Hudson that that company abandoned gravity tbetween Scranton and CarDondale. With all his goings and comings he still took active interest in local politics. In 1877 he was city engineer, serving a number of years in that office, and in 1873 he was president of the school board. It was during his administration that the celebrated school board fight took place between the C. E. Royce faction and the Blewitt faction. Bach side claimed it was the legally organized body. The matter got Into the courts and did not end until the Supreme court had decided that the Blewitt faction was the legally au thorized school board. . Made Original Maps, In recent years Mr. Blewitt took life easy. He frequently was consulted on matters concerning coal surveys and his maps and drawings have always been accepted as the authority when other maps have been disputed; Practically all mine maps used in this county are extensions of original Blew - ltt maps. When the county commis sioners four years ago wanted to ascertain the quantity of coal In the county for assessment purposes, it was to Blewitt they looked for the information, and during the hearings on the appeals 'he was a witness for the county. Large physically, he was a rugged, hardy, strong man who was identified with the developing and the envelopment of this city in every respect. rte was tbe father of thirteen children, eight of whom survive.
