Mr. and Mrs. John Herman left last
week for Philadelphia, expecting to
make the Quaker City their fouture
abiding place.
Both our church congregations cel-
ebrated Easter services. The ceremo-
nies were numerously patronized and
highly appreciated by all participants.
The contractors of our state road
have consummated a deal whereby
they will take over the Pleasant Gap
hotel. Mrs. John Myers had previous-
ly rented the hotel. The road men en-
tered into an agreement with Mrs.
Myers whereby they agree to furnish
all the supplies necessary as well as
coal and elactric light, ete., Mrs. My-
ers and daughter to receive a very
liberal salary for conducting the same;
the work on the road will be started
in a few days.
I sometimes think that it is starnge
indeed, that we don’t have more in-
sane patients in our insane asylums,
when we take into consideration the
many painful and petty annoyances
we have to contend with. I often
wonder why it is that a barber will
scratch and Tub your head for an hour
and not touch the particular spot that
itches. Science may dispel the mys-
tery that hangs about a universe, and
philosophy make plain the whys and
wherefores of things in general, but
neither of them appear to be equal to
the emergency in this case. Rocks
have testified to this age of man, and
the grath—rings in heavy oaks and
in giant redwoods and gnarled and
riven elms, told stories of aboriginal
but all are silent as to the time
when a barber scratched the place that
itched. Did you ever observe what a
deal of discomfort a very small thing
may cause? A hair wafted from
somewhere lights on your nose and
begins to tickle. Both of your hands
are full, as a matter of course, and
you would give just anything to get
at that hair. The more you think
about it the more it tickleh. You be-
gin to get nervous, tears come into
your eyes, your knees tremble, and
you feel that you must scratch or die.
Things like this are liable to occur
when you are standing before the hy-
menial altar, holding a baby for a
long-winded parson to baptize, or
when in a position, that to move a
muscle is to express yourself to in-
stant death or frightful peril. Flies
light on your nose when you want to
appear specially sober or when you
are sitting for a photograph. Gnats
crawl into your ears when you are lis-
tening to something nice, or persist
in roosting on your eyelashes just the
moment you want to see clearly
Dogs bark when it is most essential
for them to keep quiet; cats waul and
caterwaul just when the morld and its
cares are fading from your sight and
memory; night hawks scream most
ominously, and hornets invariably
sting the day before a picnic, or near
the time you are expecting to see your
sweetheart. Haven't you noticed that
things happen in this odd and disa-
greeable way? And haven’t you won-
dered why they should? Since there
must be a good reason for it, is it not
enough to give the seeming mystery
up or let it pass with an expression of
disgust or a smile. The most proba-
ble as well as philosophical explana-
tion that can be given for freaks of
this kind is that they are more notice-
able at such times. The fall of a
pin during Quaker meeting will create
a stir, while repeated falls of a heavy
gavel on a resonant slab of marble
produces no appreciable effect in a
meeting of politicians. It depends
aore on the surroundings than on the
thing that happens. A cat concert is
rather delightful under some circum-
stances, and often not in the least dis-
agreeable. The cry of a baby would
scarcely be noticed in a nursery, and
a troublesome fly or a gnat would be
unceremoniously brushed off and for-
gotten at any other time than the par-
ticular one when they were felt to be
an annoyance. This probobly explains
the seeming perversity of the barber
in scratching every spot on your head
except the one you most desire to have
scratched. Some barbers have a
fashion of rubbing all in one place,
and that without the comfort of their
victim. Since the days of Samson—
and probably long before—most men
have enjoyed having their heads gen-
tly scratched. There is something
soothing about it. Delilah evidently
knew this when she scratched Sam-
son’s head so divinely as to cause a
sleep so deep to fall upon him that a
Philistine barber cut his hair without
waking him. As nearly as can be de-
termined, rubbing and scratching the
head was about the only anaesthetic
known previous to the christian era.

Italians Stab Game Warden.
Last Friday afternoon state game
warden W. Clyde Kelly, of Clearfield,
accompanied by deputy warden Davis
went to Morrisdale to arrest Mike and
Tony Churilla, two Italians who were
son. The Italians put up a fight and
deputy warden Davis was stabbed in
the back and hip by one of the for-
eigners. A telephone call was then
sent to Philipsburg for the state po-
lice and the three officers went to
Morrisdale and captured the Italians,
finally landing them in the Clearfield
jail. The condition of Davis, who was
stabbed, is not considered serious.

The Proper Course
Information of Priceless Value to
Every Bellefonte Citizen.
How to act in an emergency is
knowledge of inestimable worth, and
this is particularly true of the diseas-
es and ills of the human body. If you
suffer with kidney backache, urinary
disorders, or any form of kidney
trouble, the advice contained in the
following statement should add a val-
uable asset to your store of knowl-
edge. What would be more convinc-
ing proof of the efficiency of Doan’s
Kidney Pills than the statement of a
Bellefonte citizen who used them and
who publicly tells of the benefit de-
rived ?
Mrs. L. A. Hill, E. Bishop St., says:
“I am bothered by backache occasion-
ally, but I keep Doan’s Kidney Pills in
the house and the benefit I derive
from their use is very gratifying.”
