Items of Interest Dished Up for the
Delectation of “Watchman” Read-
ers by a Corps of Gifted
The robins are visiting us in profu-
sion, but the frisky bluebirds are late
in putting in their appearance.
Mrs. Lee Sampsel and her interest-
ing little daughter Margaret, spent a
very pleasant day recently with her
brother-in-law Rice’s family, at Rock-
Our enterprising townsman, Mr.
Ray Noll, paymaster of Whiterock
quarries, has purchased the Abram V.
Miller estate farm adjacent to Pleas-
ant Gap. The entire tract consists of
almost four hundred acres, three-
fourths of which is well covered with
prop and chemical timber. Ray is an
up-to-date, practical, shrewd business
man, and will come out a winner an
this extensive business deal.
Some of the officials of our state
road department had a meeting in
Bellefonte last week. Among other
pending operations it was decided to
re-surface and widen the College state
road from the summit to State Col-
lege in the near future. George R.
Hughes, of Axe Mann, was appointed
road repairman for the Bellefonte and
Lewistown state road with O. C.
Brooks, of Pleasant Gap, as his as-
What strange infatuation is it that
tempts men to drink alcoholic liquors
to excess, when facts and reason, and
nature and religion, are continually
warning them of the inevitable train
of disasters and evils consequent
thereon? When our senses warn us
of the immediate danger of a preci-
pice close at hand, have we not pru-
dence to avoid it, clinging to life as
we do, with a cowardly tenacity?
Why have men not sufficient sense and
consistency to forsake the miserable,
foolish indulgence of drinking poison?
Of all the foes of the working class
this is the deadliest. They fully real-
ize their folly in this respect. With
anguish and dispair they often say,
“one glass more and I have done.”
Beware of that one glass; it has led
thousands to ruin and finally to death.
It’s a curse.
Probably the happiest girl in Ben-
ner township on Friday night last was
Miss Cora Peters, it being the occa-
sion of her birthday anniversary, and
a delightful party was given in her
honor by her numerous friends and
admirers. The event, a genuine sur-
prise to the young lady, was celebrat-
ed at the home of Mr. Joseph Peters.
Among the participants were Mr. and
Mrs. Shuey and Mrs. Clarence From,
of State College; Mr. and Mrs. Earl
Rimmey, of Pleasant Gap; the Mec-
Clellan sisters, of Bellefonte; Miss
Mary Boyle and Miss McClellan, of
Milesburg; Mary and Florence Samp-
sel, Miss Grace*Breon, Miss Nellie Pe-
ters, Harry Garner and Clarence Rip-
ka. Miss Cora was the recipient of
numerous and appropriate presents.
Dancing and innccent card games
were highly appreciated by all pres-
ent. A superb luncheon was served.
The entire entertainment was highly
enjoyed by all who were fortunate
enough to be present.
Recently while at the postoffice, two
rather prepossessing High school
girls, evidently mistaking me for an
information bureau, asked me to
please write something on love in my
next epistle to the “Watchman.” I
told them they should appeal to some
older person than the writer, one more
experienced in the soft topic. When
good looking girls say “please” what
are you going to do about it? So here
it goes. There has been more written
on love than any other topic since the
world began, and as the population of
the world increases and the inhabit-
ants thereof grow in knowledge, more
and more will be written on it. The
simpering school-girl sends love mis-
sives to the boy she fancies most; the
little Miss just budding into woman-
hood can think of no other topic for
an essay; the young lady who has
donned long dresses (if they exist)
and stands on the threshhold of the
society world, writes of it in all her let-
ters to schoolmates and friends, the la-
dy wo begins to cast furtive glances
over her shoulder to see what she has
passed, writes in the sands as she pen-
sively, yet impatiently, waits to be
fatally wounded by Cupid; the spin-
sler writes page upon page to prove it
a myth, a delusion, a snare, herself be-
ing witness that there is no such
thing; the trembling hand of age
writes of it as a silvered page that is
ever bright and fresh, even when oth-
er pages have grown dim and musty.
Thus from childish youth to childish
age love is woman’s dearest theme.
Milton gave woman credit for won-
drous power over man. Adam was in-
fluenced by it. So it is yet, and so it
will ever be. Before Adam was, love
was; and when the last of Adam’s race
shall have departed, love will still
walk the cold, dead earth, fearful that |
some living thing may have escaped |
the general doom and exists unloved.
As a rule, men are bigger fools in
matters pertaining to love than wom-
en. Stop and think a little. Do you
not know of more men who have com-
mitted suicide on account of love af-
fairs than women? Have you not
known of more men making spectacles
of themselves on account of a cross
in the love wires, than women? Sta-
tistics show that there are more men
sent to insane asylums by that con-
scienceless little busybody, Cupid, than !
women? Can you think just now of
as many women of your acquaintance
who have gone to the bad on account
of love as you can of men? As wom-
en are particularly loud in the clam-
ors for justice at this time, would it
not be a strong point in their favor to
show that in this matter of love they
are stronger-minded and more level-
headed than men? Much of this stuff
that passes current for love is noth-
i 5,000,000 acres of waste land in the
ing but sickness. In many respects it
suddenly, debilitating both mind and
body and making the victim misera-
ble. The love sick swain is just as
pitiable a sight as the sea sick tourist.
Neither cares if the sun ever rises or
sets again. They want to die, and oc-
casionally when nature refuses to ac-
commodate them they take the affair
into their own hands. For genuine
love the Homeopathic system of treat-
ment is the only one that will ever
prove availing. Love is the disease
and love the remedy. There are some
cases where a dose of blue mass or
some other efficient liver regulator is
indicated. This may seem silly, but it
isn’t half as silly as it seems; it is a
positive fact. Then there are dys-
peptics, who think themselves in love
when in reality it is only irritability
of the pneumogastric nerve. The sen-
sation is reflex, which accounts for it
not being readily traced to the stom-
ach. No one should marry while
troubled with either dyspepsia or liv-
er complaint, as there is great danger
of the passion disappearing with the
disease. If during the attack, a man
hasn’t a good advisor he is liable to
make a fool of himself, because he
may propose and be accepted and go
out and tell everybody he knows that
he is the happiest man in the world.
He is happy, or at least he enjoys the
peculiar sensation which at first is
most enjoyable indeed, but as it grows
older it seems to take on a tinge of
misery. One moment the victim will
swear that he is the happiest of the
happy, and the very next that he is
the most miserable of the miserable.
Queer, isn’t it? There is just about
as much use of talking philosophy to
lovers as reading poetry to owls—
they wink and look wise, and that is
all. It is a pity it is so, and were it
not for the prospect of a change in
the near future the outlook would be
anything but encouraging. Not that
genuine love is less potent than in
Eden, but that dyspepsia and bilious-
ness are increasing with such marvel-
ous rapidity. To be happy people
must be healthy. A sickly lover is an
intolerable nuisance. Preachers and
moralists are declaiming loudly
against divorce laws, and citing the
fact that there is an average of one
divorce for every ten marriages. Do
they ever stop to think that there are
just grounds for twice as many more?
Do not the unhappy homes within the
circle of their acquaintance teach
them that there is something radic-
ally wrong, and can they not see that
divorce or separation is the only rem-
edy for it? Men and women must
learn to distinguish the great and vi-
tal difference between fascination and
affinity; biliousness and love. Until
they are able to do this, there will be
divorces, scandals, murders, suicides
and lives of shame and deaths of mis-
Rev. and Mrs. Stover are enjoying
a visit of their daughter, Mrs. Hoff-
man and little child, of Baltimore.
Henry Gilbert, our aged shoemaker,
had the misfortune to fall on Sunday
morning. In his feeble condition the
fall rendered’ him almost helpless.
Frank B. Miller, of Tylersville,
spent Tuesday night, the 7th inst., as
the guest of Thomas Hull. Mr. Mil-
ler was a delegate to the Evangelical
conference in session in Lewisburg.
Mrs. A. S. King left Tuesday morn-
ing for Milroy, where she will visit
her daughter, Miss Lodie, and Mr. and
Mrs. Kramer, who previous to going
to Milroy were residents of this place.
’Squire and Mrs. Stover have as
a guest Mrs. Stover’s sister, Mrs.
Clark Herman, of State College, who
came down Saturday for a week's vis-
it here with her brother and family
and with friends.
Mrs. George Cunningham has gone
to Riverside, where her parents reside.
Her mother, Mrs. Gulick, has been
quite ill for some time and her condi-
tion does not change for the better.
Let us hope, however, she may soon
improve and recover.
Some time during Sunday night the
death angel invaded the Otto home
and wafted the spirit of the husband
and father, John M. Otto, into the
realms of the Great Beyond. The
writer has no information other than
that the funeral took place at four
o’clock Tuesday afternoon, burial be-
ing made in Williamsport. The widow
and son have the sympathy of their
neighbors and friends in their sorrow.
Mis. Henry Mowery was called
home from Altoona, where she had
been visiting her daughter, Mrs. C. H.
McVey, Mr. Mowery having had a bad
fall from the straw mow while doing
his evening chores. He is getting
along as well as can be expected. Dr.
Braucht was called and he states that
no bones are broken. Mr. Mowery’s
greatest pain is in his back. His
neighbors wish for him a full and
speedy recovery. Clair Meckley, of
Altoona, accompanied his aunt home
and has been their guest since.
Forest Lands Owned by State.
The biennial report of the Pennsyl-
vania Department of Forestry shows
that during 1920 and 1921, 77,544
i acres of forest land were purchased
by the Commonwealth and placed un-
der the administration of the Depart-
ment. According to the figure com-
piled, the State Forest area is now
1,126,236 acres, purchased at a total
| cost of more than $2,646,400, an av-
| erage of $2.26 per acre.
| During 1920, the area acquired was
59,788 acres. Last year there were
added to the state forests 17,760
acres. The combined area purchased
during the two years was larger than
the total purchoses of the seven pre-
| vious years, 1913 to 1919.
Last year the Department made a
special survey of the forest land avail- |
able for acquisition by the State.
Written offers of 488,353 acres were
received by the Department. In addi-
tion, verbal offers were made to the
Department covering more than 250,-
000 acres, making the total acreage
offered for purchase about 750,000
A bond issue of $25,000,000 is now
recommended for the purchase of
is similar to sea-sickness, coming on |
State, and it already has been approv-
ed by the Grange. The Department’s
studies show that if this sum is made
tated forest land, the entire amount
will be repaid—principal and interest
—within a reasonable time by the
growth of the forests.

Thousands take Hood’s Sarsaparil-

Spring debility is a condition in
which it is especially hard to combat
disease gems, which invade the sys-

called “the little soldiers in the blood,”

State College Perfecting New Heat
_ A new apparatus for the determina-
tion of heat losses through any kind
of a flat wall is rapidly being perfect-
ed by the engineering experiment sta-
tion at The Pennsylvania State Col-
lege. For several years the college
research specialists have been study-
ing the loss of heat as it passes
through various materials from a high
to a lower temperature. During: the
past six months a high degree of per- |
fection has been reached with a spe- !
cial instrument which is ultimately
expected to increase the efficiency of |
pipe and wall insulations, refrigera-
tors and other apparatus where the
conservation of heat or cold is essen-
tial. The -college is receiving co-op-
eration from the American Society of
Heating and Ventilating Engineers in
this project, and also from a number
of firms manufacturing or dealing in
