Bellefonte, Pa., August 11, 1922, Country Correspondence Items of Interest Dished Up for the Delectation of “Watchman” Read- ers by a Corps of Gifted Correspondents. PLEASANT GAP. 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 HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS 2 GooD BOOK SAY HITS Mo’ BLESSED T' GIVE PAN T’ RE-CEIVE BUT AH BLIEVE AHN RUTHER PO DE RE-CEIVIN' ENDURIN' DESE HARD TIMES! 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- self. 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 kettle. Set the glasses, when filling them, on a folded damp towel, or drop a sil- ver spoon in the glass to prevent breakage. Mould may be prevented by cover- ing the surface of the jelly thickly with powdered sugar. P. S.—You can use this or dump it— up to you—If it goes in I'll catch hell —but nothing bothers me—well.

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.” P—— CASTORIA Bears the signature of Chas, H.Fletcher.
