Alderman J. Duncan Herman and
wife spent Sunday at Williamsport.
Mrs. James S. Cresswell, of Cali-
fornia, Pa., and Mr. and Mrs. N. A.
Miller, of Pittsburgh, are visiting the
family of J. N. Mong and wife, par-
ents of Mrs. Cresswell.
The real estate of the late Robert
Barnes and the personal property of
the late Mrs. Sallie Barnes will be ex-
posed to public sale on August 17th.
A clean-up sale is announced by W. H.
Noll Jr., executor.
Orrie Mulbarger, farmer on the Noll
Bros. farm, expects to abandon farm-
ing at the end of the season. He is
about closing a deal whereby he will
become owner of the former home of
the late Daniel Schlottman.
Mrs. John Herman and daughter
Edith motored to Williamsport on
Sunday morning last with a view of
visiting with their intimate friends,
Mz». and Mrs. John Hartman. They
will be absent for a week at least.
The ladies of the Patriotic Sons of
America held their annual pienic in
Noil’s grove on Saurday evening last.
It was a decided success, socially and
financially. The attendance was up to
their anticipations and all were happy
and satisfied.
Messrs. John and Frank Barnes
sold their homes last Saturday to a
Mr. Davis, of West Virginia. The
John Barnes residence will be the fu-
ture home of Mr. Davis, while a son
of Mr. Davis will occupy the Frank
Barnes premises.
Mrs. Raymond Melroy, accompanied
by Miss Ruth Melroy and two of their
friends, have been taking in New
York city the past week, object—sight
seeing and generally speaking, having
an enjoyable time. They will drop oft
at Atlantic City for a few days on re-
turning home and see what they can
see, and, visiting Atlantic City for
Mrs. Melroy is like visiting at home,
as she taught school for several terms
adjacent to Atlantic City some six or
eight years ago and enjoys meeting
her old friends in Jersey.
Some men profess to be highly mor-
al, put on the appearance of being in
easy circumstances, and even go SO
far as to make great pretentions as to
what they are worth. The facts may
be exactly the reverse of all this, their
sole object being to get wives who are
able to keep them. The woman who
falls a prey to a swindler of this char-
acter is truly an object of pity, but
not more so than the man who gets
roped in by a woman who marries
merely to keep out of the old maid
row. If one of these biters happens
to get bitten, for them there is no rest,
no comfort, no happiness; they must
abide the consequences.
There seems to be a slump in the
market situation of chickens. The
market declined 5 cents per pound the
past week and a further reduction is
anticipated at an early day. Over
production is the cause. Our commu-
nity never raised so many chickens as
were produced the present season.
Farmer Spicher, who purchased the
Larimer farm some time ago, has over
1700 head of chickens. T. E. Jodon
has over 200, James Bilger about 225,
Bent Bell has something like 500 to
his credit and a number of others have |.
over fifty. As over production has a
tendency to bring down prices it is
but reasonable to suppose that a still
further decline will be the result at
an early day.
Have you not noticed that the boy
who respects his mother less, and his
father more, is invariably, or almost
invariably, a bad boy; and that the
girl who hates her father, or clings
especially to her mother, is apt to
prove a failure? Possibly you have
not noticed particularly, but you will
find it about that way if you take the
trouble to make a few notes as you go
along. Mamma’s girls are sometimes
beautiful, very beautiful but that is
their only stock in trade, and it is tee
often counterbalanced by an irritabie
disposition, bad temper, or disagreea-
ble spirit. A most notable character-
istic of this class is their dislike for
men. They rarely love their fathers
or brothers, and merely respect their
husbands. They prefer the mother’s
company to that of the father or hus-
band, and go to her for all their ad-
vice and with all their troubles. Hav-
ing married because it was the best
thing to do, rather than because they
expected to be happier in that state,
they take but little interest in making
home pleasant and enjoyable. The
great majority of wives who delight
in henpecking their husbands were
“mamma’s girls.” They regard a hus-
band in the light of a household con-
venience, to be used as a handy uten-
sil. They see but little in any man to
admire except his money, and his
services as a general waiter, a conven-
ience as it were. Take notes and
make observations as you go along
and you will discover that I am not
far wrong.
As the fruit preserving season is
now on it might be beneficial to many,
more especially the ones who are just
embarking in the housekeeping prop-
osition, to give the views of an expert
on the subject. When I say or use
the word expert I am referring to
Ruthie, my room-mate for lo, these
many years. 1 think she knows all
about the game. I quietly interview-
ed her and here are her experiences.
Rich “pound for pound” preserves and
jam can be put away without sealing;
simply tie up with 2 or 3 thicknesses
of paper over which put a cloth. Look
at them occasionally and if signs of
working appear, heating up thorough-
ly will sweeten them again. Remove
catopally any mould that may show it-
To prevent preserves and jams from
sugaring add a teaspoonful cream tar-
tar to every gallon of fruit before it
is quite cooked. A very little tartaric
acid will answer the same purpose.
Use small jars for preserves. Pre-
serves that are candied may be liqui-
fied by setting the jar in a kettle of
cold water. Let the water boil for an
hour or more. The “pound for pound”
custom of preserving fruit has been
growing less for many years, though
many still prefer the preserved to
canned fruit.
Pare fruit for canning and preserv-
ing with a silver knife that it may not
blacken. Melted parafine poured on
top of jellies, jams, etc., also on top
of canned fruit when the covers are
discolored, will be all the covering
necessary, excepting a cloth or paper
to exclude dust. Use fruit before it
is too ripe.
Fruit, to extract the juices well,
should be brought to a scald. Put in
a stone jar, mash and stand the jar in
a kettle of boiling water. Scald thor-
oughly and strain through a coarse
cloth; squeeze but slightly that the
jelly may be clear.
Jelly should not stop boiling until
done. Do not make too large a quan-
tity at once. Jelly is much nicer if
strained before putting in glasses. Do
not squeeze nor stir, but let drip slow-
ly through. Placing it near the stove
will, prevent the jelly thickening and
hasten the straining process. A pan
or shallow preserving kettle is best
for boiling jelly. Do not use a brass

ver spoon in the glass to prevent
Mould may be prevented by cover-
ing the surface of the jelly thickly
with powdered sugar.

In a Bad Way.
A speaker in a minister’s meeting
in Boston told the story of a Negro
clergyman who so pestered his bishop
with appeals for help that it became
necessary to tell him that he must not
send any more appeals. His next
communication was as follows:
“This is not an appeal. It is a re-
port. I have no pants.”
