Four of our citizens were fortunate
on Monday last to secure employment
with the Titan Metal company.

John Mulfinger is serving in the ca-

Mr. Samuel Waite will leave Satur-
day for Long Island, N. Y., to visit his
daughter. After an indefinite sojourn
there he expects to proceed to Niaga-
ra Falls, to visit his son and family.
He expects to return to his bachelor
quarters at Pleasant Gap on or before
August first.
The tax payers of Spring township
were very agreeably surprised. They
anticipated considerable of an increase
over the 1920 duplicate. The only
changes made were an increase of two
mills cn road tax. The road tax was
increased from 8 mills to 5 mills,
while the poor tax was decreased
from 3 mills to 2 mills, thus causing
only a slight increase over 1920.
Almost everybody about the Gap
who can afford it are the happy pos-
sessors of an automobile, hence it is
that Mr. Henry Noll, proprietor of the
Ford’s authorized service station, is
obliged to work all day and frequently
half the night. We noticed twelve
disabled machines at this garage on
Monday last. On inquiry as to what
this meant were told by Mr. Noll that
it means that his prices for services
appeal to the public. Messrs. Jodon
& Sommers, at the forks of the road,
also operate a garage and are appar-
ently ‘busy all the time.
Mrs. Kate Hunter, of Pittsburgh,
after spending a few weeks at the
home of L. A. Miller and wife, left for
her home on Wednesday. Mrs. Hunt-
er is probably better known in this vi-
cinity as the former Katie Furey. She
is as cheerful and entertaining as of
yore; one of the characters that never
grow old, since she never borrows
trouble and is noted for looking on the
bright side of everything. It’s a pity
that all of us can’t do likewise. Cold
words may be correctly spoken and el-
egant, but if there is no heart-pulse in
them, they fall like flakes of snow
from a statue of ice.
Ex-County Commissioner H. E.
Zimmerman, in connection with his
other varied industries, is about to
embark in the lumbering business. He
has purchased a tract of timber, some-
thing over a hundred acres, adjacent
to McBride's gap, the former holdings
of Howard Wells. The tract will yield
an abundance of tie and prop timber.
It is conjectured that the bark and fire
wood will yield sufficient revenue to
pay for the investment. It is Mr.
Zimmerman’s intention to erect a saw
mill near his home at the Gap, where
the product will be prepared for mar-
ket. The ex-commissioner is wide
awake and progressive. He don’t
waste much time standing before a
mirror, but has a reputation of doing
things. Like the illustrious Washing-
ton, he frequently asks the advice of
his friends, then does as he pleases.
The hour fixed for the decoration of
our soldier’s graves, twenty-eight in
number, is 6 p. m. on Monday next.
While we have only three veterans
left, the churches, Sunday schools and
the Patriotic Sons of America, will
aid in the ceremonies, and will do so
willingly, since this day is sanctified
to the memory of the soldiers who fell
in defense of the flag that represents
the unity, peace and prosperity of the
nation. - This should be no day of
mourning, but rather of rejoicing.
Not rejoicing that there are desolate
homes, vacant chairs, fatherless chil-
dren, but that the one flag, represent-
ing as it does the grandest principles
in the political economy of the world,
floats supremely and without a rival,
its fair folds cleaned of the stain of
slavery and .its field of stars widely
extended. That thousands, yea, hun-
dreds of thousands dizd in the strug-
gle, is true, but it was that millions
yet to be, might breathe the soul-
nourishing air of freedom and devel-
op into heroic and independent man-
hood. Why mourn their loss when the
gain was so great? Let us strew
bright flowers upon the graves of the
heroic dead. When the old veterans
have answered their last roll-call, the
patriotic sons will perpetuate their
A few evenings ago while walking
down the state road the writer was
dumbfounded to hear a mother up-
braid her boy; she used some terrible
and unbecoming language. Nothing
could be more unkind and injudicious.
It struck me that if you wish your
children to reform, you should throw
a shield around their character. Many
a youth has been driven to reckless
dispair by being upbraided before
strangers for misconduct, which never
ought to have been known beyond his
own family. It is not wise for a
mother either to boast of the excel-
lencies, or to publish the faults, of her
children, but rather to ponder them in
her heart; to mention them only at the
throne of grace, there to return thanks
for what is right, to.ask for guidance
to correct what is wrong, and, in all
things, to make plain before her face
the way of her own present duty in
reference to them. Mothers, partic-
ularly, have it in their power in early
life to form the disposition and char-
acter of their children, by instructing
them properly, and by giving a right
direction to the thoughts and feelings;
by so doing, you determine which class
of passions shall have the predomi-
nance in their minds during life. The
mothers have a grave responsibility
resting upon them.
Mrs. Milford Cox has been quite ill,
but is somewhat improved.
Mrs. J. H. Slatterbeck, of this place,
is visiting her daughter, Mrs. Thomp-
son Spangler, at Blanchard. Mrs.
Spangler has been quite ill.
Mrs. George Bixel and daughters,
Misses Almeta and Mary Jeannette,
were Lock Haven visitors last week-
end, and report a pleasant time.
Mrs. Marian Niepling, of Clyde, N.
Y., who has been staying with her
daughter, Mrs. John Hume Sr., has
been feeling quite ill and, although
better, is not at all strong.
William Lucas and a party of
friends traveled in William's “tin Hen-
ry” to Lock Haven to see the big
show. Everybody had a good time
cidents. :
Mrs. Belle Shearer, of Beech Creek,
who has been visiting her daughter,
Mrs. Jerry Shearer, for a couple of
weeks, expects to return home this
week. We are always glad to see the
dear motherly soul.
Harry Jodun, who moved his family
to Farrandsville from here last fall,
has returned to our little town and
people. Of course he brought his in-
teresting little family back and we are
all very glad to see them. Mrs. Jodun
is one of our pleasant and very popu-
lar women.
Willis Thompson and Alexander
Hume traveled around Centre county
last week in Willis’
several old friends and relatives. They
first called at the Thompson home in
Bellefonte; next went to the Henry
Thompson place to visit Willis’ grand-
Edgar Morrison, a former chef of the
Centre Brick Inn, of Orviston. Mr.
Morrison now owns a very nice farm
over on the Ridges. They then called
on William Walker, the former effi-
cient night fireman of the brick kilns,
now owning a dandy farm on the out-
port a very pleasant time and a warm
and hearty welcome from all. Hoping
that they all may find their way into
our midst before long.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hall and daugh-
ter, Corolla Berger, left for their new
home in Williamsport. Their friends
and neighbors were very sorry to part
with them but wish them the best of
good luck, health and prosperity in
their new neighborhood. Mrs. Hall
endeared herself to her neighbors by
her unvarying kindness and helpful-
ness, especially in sickness and.death.
With malice toward none and charity
friends and neighbors are grieving
over the state of her daughter’s
health, as Corolla has tuberculosis and
must be sent almost immediately to
the sanitarium at Mont Alto. We are
all hoping she may recover and be a
comfort to her good, kindly parents.
Mr. Hall has been a good, faithful
workman, a sober, industrious man
and. a kind, accommodating neighbor.
We hope to have them visit us often.

panied Mr. and Mrs. Bartley, of Belle-

narr home.
Police at Spelling Bees.
The state policeman is becoming a
familiar sight at the many spelling
bees held throughout Lancaster coun-
ty. For many years the success of
spelling bees were marred by youths,
whose only reason for being present
was to “act smart” and get the con-
testants “fussed.” Now all this has
been changed.
Although unique work for the state
police, Troop E has been supplying a
number of requests from rural schools
for mounted officers. As a result the
teachers declare that the spelling bees
are more successful, larger in attend-
ance and carried off without the usual
interruptions from boisterous persons
in the audience.

' Will Soy Beans Take the Place of
Will soy beans replace oats to ad-
vantage in the Pennsylvania farm
crop rotation? This question came up
during an eight year experiment with
, soy beans conducted at The Pennsyl-
. vania State College agricultural ex-
periment station, in which the aim
was to determine the adaptability of
, that crop to Pennsylvania conditions.
. One outstanding feature of the long
test was that for an average of eight
years it was found that soy beans pro-
duced more protein per acre than oats,
‘and when cut for hay the beans also
contained slightly more net energy
than oats.
. However, when it comes to replac-
_ing oats with soy beans in Pennsylva-
‘nia, the college recommendation var-
ies with the use of the crop. In the!
' southern and southeastern counties
where the oat crop is relatively poor,
, the use of soy beans is considered ad-
; visible; but in the more central and
northern counties, soy beans can only
, replace oats advantageously when the
, crop is desird for hay. This is due to
‘the fact that if the soy beans are
' raised in those sections as a grain
crop, they will mature too late to per-
, mit the planting of wheat, the suc-
; ceeding crop. In the southern part,
however, it would doubtless be good
practice for farmers to raise soy beans
instead of oats, provided they care to
go to the extra work involved in their
production. Inoculation of the soil
and cultivation are necessary for the
successful production of soy beans,
but these extras are offset by the
great soil nitrogen storing properties
' of the soy bean, which is a lagume.
The State College tests also showed
that when a silage of soy beans and
' corn is desired, the two crops should
!'be grown separately for best results
and mixed at the rate of one ton of
The best time for seeding soy beans
is in late May or early June. Exper-
iments show that they can be grown
and matured anywhere in the State.

Water in the Sky.
Science tells us that water in the
atmosphere keeps us warm. If the air
were entirely dry the temperature
would be 50 degrees lower than it is.
We should have hard work to keep
from freezing.
Without moisture in the air, there
would be no rain, of course. The
earth would quickly become a desert;
so that, lacking food, we would soon
starve to death anyway.
One thing that rain does for us is to
wash the dust out of the air. Tt makes
the rivers run and provides us with
water to drink. All of which are con-
soling reflections in which we may
properly indulge during a spell of what
we call bad weather.
