Perfection Heaters Ideal for Fall
The first fall weather, which has
been experienced here during the last
few days, is an unpleasant reminder
to householders that the furnace sea-
son 1s once more at hand. Particu-
larly in homes where there are chil-
dren it is necessary to have some heat
in the house on the cool mornings and
evenings which are just beginning.
The present price of coal, however,
makes starting the furnace fire an un-
usually melancholy process this year.
When running the furnace is more
than ever like burning up real money,
the wastefulness of having a furnace
fire for the few cool hours of morn-
ing and evening is apparent.
Householders are therefore taking
considerable interest in the demon-
stration of oil heaters by various lo-
The week of October 13
tune time to demonstrate Perfection
oil heaters all over the country. A
national advertising campaign will
supplement the demonstrations. The
{ local demonstrations are part of this
national campaign. 5
The coal shortage in the last two
years brought out the remarkable
utility of oil heaters for home use at
times when it was unnecessary to op-
erate the entire heating plant. Such
a heater can be ‘easily carried from
room to room furnishing the requir- |
ed amount of heat when and where it |
is needed. It is' almost a household
necessity ‘throughout the winter to
supplement the furnace in rooms and
corners which are especially hard to
heat. A HOG
Perfection heaters have ‘been devel-
oped to a high degree. Their abso-
lute safety is assured’ by a device
which eliminates all danger of smoke
or odor by making it impossible to
turn the wick too high. As this heat-
er will burn for ten hours on a single
gallon of kerosene, its economy rec-
-ommends it for use in every home.
Quite Otherwise. :
“Your charges are simply out-
rageous,” complained the guest who
was at the shore hotel for his health.
“Hold on,” protested the landlord.
“You forget I’'m-not at this hotel for
the same reason that you are.”
He—“Your cousin refused to recog-
nize me at the Jazz last night; thinks
I’m not his equal, I suppose.”
She—“Ridiculous! Of course. you
are; why, he’s nothing but a conceit-
ed idiot.”—Blightly, London.

Mrs. Carrie Owens, formerly of
Ridgway, and her two little children,
visited her sister, Mrs. Philip Dietz,
for a few days, later going to Lock
Haven to obtain employment. Mrs.
Owens is a widow with two little
ones, and her friends hope she will be
successful, as she is a very worthy
young woman.
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Packer, of
Ridgway, visited Mrs. Packer’s par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Dietz, of Or-
viston, for a few days. They are at
present visiting Mr. Packer’s rela-
tives in Beech Creek and vicinity.
They are contemplating a removal
from their present location, as both
like to be nearer ‘home folks.”
Lieut. John Hume and wife return-
ed to their home in Falconer, N. Y.
They stopped for a short time with
Mr. and Mrs. Louis N. Hume, of Lock
Haven. They were accompanied that
far by his mother, Mrs. John Hume
Sr., and William Hume-Jones, who re-
turned home Tuesday. They found
Mrs. Louis Hume much improved in
health, as her trip to Orviston had
proved too much for her strength and
she felt the effects of it after return-
ing home.
A few weeks ago Frank Bartlow,
who is in charge of the Center Brick |
& Clay Co’s camp, sent in on the clay
train sixteen double blankets and
some pillow slips, which were to be
sent to the laundry at Lock Haven, as
Frank likes to treat his men like men.
The blankets arrived at the upper
works and then disappeared. Some
unregenerate miscreant thought those
blankets might help solve the high
cost of living, and so gently appro-
priated them. In the meantime the
poor chaps out back were shivering
nightly, and Frank was wondering
what had become of his bed clothes
(these are owned by the company but
the camp boss must look out for
them). However, no trace of the
missing blankets, or their new propri-
etor, has been found. We hope that
some other rogue may carry them off
when the temperature registers zero,
and leave the first rascal to shiver
alone. Meanwhile the company had
to get some new ones for their men.
I am sore afraid the party, if ever
found, will have to keep himself warm
trying to break out of Rockview; al-
though from the looks of things it
does not sweat some of the inmates.
Women in Reading in Civic Campaign
Reading, Pa.—Mrs. Ada M. Landis,
county president of the W. C. T. U,,
is making arrangements to launch an
educational campaign to interest
women in Reading and in Berks in
civic affairs. Mrs. Landis and other
W. C. T. U. workers take the view
that to keep the organization alive,
now that its original purpose has been
accomplished through prohibition, is
to give it a live issue to work with.
The body will work along suffrage
and ballot educational lines to make
every voting woman a good citizen.
A Funny Slip.
An English physician telegraphed
to the husband of a patient who had
sustained a chill, and this is the form
in which the message reached him:
“No danger. Your wife has had a
child. If we can keep her from hav-
ing another tonight she will do well.”
Have You Scrofula?
Now Said to Be as Often Acquired
as Inherited. ©
It is generally and chiefly indicated
by eruptions and sores, but in many
cases it enlarges the glands of the
neck; affects the internal organs, es-
pecially the lungs, and if neglected
may develop into consumption.
It causes many troubles, and is ag-
gravated by impure air, unwhole-
some food, bad water, too much heat
or cold, and want of proper exercise.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla, the medicine
that has been used with so much sat-
isfaction by three generations, is won-
derfully successful in the treatment
of scrofula. Give it a trial.
If a cathartic or laxative is needed,
take Hood’s Pills,—there is nothing
better for biliousness or constipa-
tion. 64-40
