It is alleged that a number of our
townships in the county are up against
it since their school boards are in a
quandary to raise sufficient funds to
carry out their school work. Not so
with Spring township. The school
board in Spring township, through ju-
dicious financiering, has money to
loan; a very pleasing situation from a
financial point of view. In the mean-
time the millage remains the same as
last year.
Notwithstanding that the cherry
crop is a decided failure and plums
and apples will scarcely yield a half
normal crop, the indications now are
that we will have an abundant crop of
grapes, blackberries and raspberries;
in fact all varieties of berries look
very promising. So that we can con-
gratulate ourselves that we will have
a sufficiency of jellies and preserves to
bridge us over. Providence never for-
sakes us.

Victory for Scranton.
Scranton staged a second Armistice
day celebration recently when a mes-
sage from Harrisburg announced that
Governor Sproul had signed’ the bills
that provide for protection against
cave-ins of mines and for jail penal-
ties for coal company officials who vi-
olate the bills.
The Governor’s approval means that
the citizens of Scranton and the en-
tire anthracite region have won a bat-
tle that lasted for thirteen years
against the coal companies, in protest
against cave-ins that wreck schools,
churches, homes, streets and ceme-
teries and which have resulted in
many deaths.
Under the terms of the two bills
passed by the Legislature, the compa-
nies cannot do any further reckless
A dispatch says that when the word
came that the bills had been signed

plants throughout the city raised a din

heard. Impromptu parades surged

opening of the college demonstrational

evening the new president of Penn
State, Dr. John M. Thomas, will give
his first talk to the farmers of the
State. The program for Thursday
and Friday of Farmers’ week will be
the most complete of its kind ever of-
fered to Pennsylvania farmers, and in
that time it will be possible for the
visitors to see practically every fea-

by representing it as saying:

Whiskey Not a Medicine.
The recent declaration of the Na-
tional Medical Association that whis-
key has no therapeutic value finds
strong support in the fact, brought to
light through a recent canvass of the
152,627 physicians in the United
States, that only 33,379 or 22 per
cent. of their number hold permits to

liquors as medicine. There are 40,000
physicians in these States, and in
many of them pure grain or ethyl al-
cohol is found to be a satisfactory sub-
stitute for whiskey or brandy as a sol-
vent or preservative.
All of which would indicate that

is a Burden
Woman’s lot is a weary one at best.
But with backache and other distress-
ing kidney ills life indeed becomes a
burden. Doan’s Kidney Pills have
made life brighter for many Belle-
fonte women. Read what Mrs. J. T.
Gordon, 130 E. Beaver St., Bellefonte,
says: “I and another member of my
family have found great benefit from
the use of Doan’s Kidney Pills, which
were procured at Parrish’s drug store.
My trouble was a dull, constant back-
ache which kept me in misery at
times. Mornings I was so sore and
lame I dreaded to begin my house-
work, for it was a burden. Doan’s
Kidney Pills, taken according to di-
rections restored my kidneys to a
normal condition. I have had no re-
turn of the backache or kidney disor-
ders. Doan’s surely have my grati-
tude for the lasting benefit they
brought me.” (Statement given
April 12, 1914).
On October 19, 1918, Mrs. Gordon
said: “I gladly confirm my previous
statement for Doan’s Kidney Pills, as
I certainly have found them to be all
that is claimed for them. Doan’s

The Overworked and Overflowing Ash-
Of all ugly sights in a yard the
overworked ashpit is the worst. It
has a pyramid of ashes, tin cans, wire,
' old rags and paper, rising above it and
| overflowing on the sides. Such a sight
is a disgrace to any home.
It is a
"badge of slovenliness that cannot be
prescribe whiskey for medicinal pur-
such prescriptions and physicians are '
argued down. No housewife, or
househusband, for that matter, can
feel proud of such a sight or justify it
to critical neighbors. It is an eyesore
to the whole block. It makes no dif-
ference if it is in the back yard and
cannot be seen from the front. The
neighbors see it if strangers do not.
Any person viewing the neighborhood
critically, perhaps with a view of buy-
ing some home that may be for sale,
is forse to be unfavorably impressed
y it.
How is this to be remedied? If the
owner has so little sense of neatness
or his duty to his neighbors as to let
it overflow, he can be brought into
line when the national clean-up and

time when neighbors feel that they
can speak to him about it. If he once
gets the clean-up spirit and the idea
of neighborhood co-operation into his
mind he will get that ashpit regularly
emptied ever afterward. That is one
of the greatest features of the cam-
paign; it gets people to thinking in
ises and surroundings and they want
the overflowing ashpit.

Deficient Vitality a Great Misfortune.
Persons who can rarely or never say that
they feel full of life, are really among the
most unfortunate. They do not live, but
merely exist; for to live implies more than
to be. To live is to be well and strong—
to arise feeling equal to the ordinary du-
ties of the day, and to retire not overcome
by them—to feel life bounding in the veins.
A medicine that has made thousands of
people, men and women, well and strong,
has accomplished a great work, bestowing
the richest blessings. Such a medicine is

to say these words in its favor.
