James Condo, of Penn Hall, was the
pleasant guest of his brother, John P.
Condo, at his home in this place.
Miss Lodie Harter, after spending
several months in Akron, Ohio, with
her niece, Mrs. Victor Stover, came to
her home here last week.
Mrs. Hattie Grenninger had as
guests her uncle, Mr. Hess, and some
of his family, of Bethlehem, Pa. They
left for their home Sunday morning.
Randolph Coll, of Austin, Pa., came
down from State College with his
cousin, Clarence Eisenhauer, spending
Sunday here with Mrs. Alice Eisen-
Rev. and Mrs. Daubenspeck and lit-
tle son Laird left Monday for Kittan-
ning and Butler, where they will spend
their vacation of three weeks among

die King, who for some time have been
living in State College, are home for
a few week’s stay. Both ladies intend
returning to State College early in
James Holloway has gone to Illi-
nois, where he is at present with the
family of his brother, William Hollo-
way, and later will visit his only sur-
viving brother and sister, Frank, who
resides in Illinois, and Mrs. Sarah
Wyle, in Akron, Ohio.
Rev. and Mrs. Geesey, of Indiana,
for the past week have been guests of
friends in Coburn, coming to our vil-
lage Saturday. However, they expect
to spend some time here during this
week. Rev. Geesey served the local
Lutheran church for several years and
it is always a plasure to welcome
them back.
Mr. and Mrs. George Weaver have
as guests during their vacation, Rev.
W. D. Donat and son Nevin, of Straw-
berry Ridge, Pa. While here they are
kept busy calling on former parish-
joners and friends. Rev. Donat serv-
ed the local Reformed charge here for
thirteen and one-half years, and only
on July 1st, 1920, severed his rela-
tionship as pastor here. While he is
no longer pastor yet his people feel
just as kindly and have his welfare as
much at heart as ever. Owing to
plans formed before it was known
Rev. Donat would be present, he will
not fill the pulpit Sunday.
Sunday was a red letter day for the
Reformed congregation in this place.
Since July 1920 they have been with-
out a pastor, though on a number of
occasions they have been supplied by
other ministers. Sunday morning the
Rev. Gearhart, of East Petersburg, de-
livered a splendid and uplifting ser-
mon. Owing to the heavy thunder
shower which passed over this section
at church time there were not nearly
as many people present at gervice as
would have been otherwise. The even-
ing service in the same house of wor-
ship was conducted by Rev. Fred
Stamm, of Dayton, Ohio, who deliver-
ed a powerful sermon to a large and
appreciative congregation. It is al-
ways edifying and inspiring to listen
to such uplifting sermons as were giv-
en us Sunday. Rev. Stamm was
in our midst and ministered unto us
spiritually, just about one year ago
when, as now, he was spending his va-
cation with friends in his native town
of Millheim.

the numbers are very much greater.

Do you know that in Italy many
men grow quite wealthy by dealing in
human hair?
You see, Italy supplies most of the
beautiful hair sometimes seen in
shops, and thinks nothing of selling
three to four million dollar’s worth
every year.
Do not imagine that because many
of the Italian peasants sell their hair,
that they go about bald. This is not
They cut off half of the hair at the
back of the head, and then twist the
remaining half over the exposed part,
dressing it in such a manner that you
couldn’t tell that any had been cut.
The hair merchants make visits
twice each year to the people who sell
their hair, and buy it according to
quality, color and length.
Genuine white hair, over ten inches
long, is very scarce, and as much as
thirty dollars per ounce is paid for it,
while golden locks are also very ex-
pensive. If the hair is dark in color,
it is much cheaper.
China also supplies about a million
pounds weight of human hair every
year, at prices varying from seven and
a half dollars to two hundred and fifty
dollars per pound for ordinary colors.
Black hair is much stronger than
golden tresses, and sustains nearly
double the weight, in fact it is often
capable of sustaining a weight of four
ounces on a single hair. Yellow hair
will scarcely support two ounces;
brown will hold up nearly three
ounces without breaking, while one of
dark brown will sustain an additional
half ounce.
Because of its great strength, hu-
man hair is made into ropes in St.
Kilda, Scotland.
Many of the people there are engag-
ed in climbing the cliffs and collecting
guillemot or razorbill’s eggs, but the
continual chafing of the ropes on the
rocks soon wears an ordinary rope and
endangers the life of the.egg collect-
or. To overcome this, a stout hempen
cord is procured and wrapped round
and round with sheep’s wool, then with
horsehair, and finally covered with hu-
man hair. This gives the cable great-
er strength and elasticity. To make
these ropes is very costly. A cheap,
one of only short length would cost at
least one hundred and fifty dollars.—
George H. Holden.
Frogs Believed to Have Code of
That frogs signal each other at
night that all is well along their
stream or pond is believed by many
fishermen who have noted their behav-
ior after the shades of night have fall-
en. When all is still along a stream,
one frog will relieve itself of a bel-
low, followed shortly by another, and
then another, until the sound has died |
away in the distance. Within a few
minutes a faint sound will be heard
far up or down the stream, and this is
repeated as before. If one frog is dis- :
turbed, however, there will be a si- |
lence all along the stream for a great
distance, not to be broken until all is
silent as the grave once more.
This will be kept up all night, and |
is believed by many to be the means
adopted by the frogs in signalling
each other. |
It is also noticed that the largest
frogs do not have the loudest voices.
A small one may roar like a bull, and |
may be answered by a big fellow with
a voice of a low tenor sound, or even !
cracked, as though it had a cold.
