Bellefonte, Pa., August 25, 1922.
Smile and the world smiles with you;
“Knock” and you go it alone;
For the cheerful grin
‘Will let you in
Where the kicker is never known.
Growl and the way looks dreary;
Laugh and the path is bright;
For a welcome smile
Brings sunshine, while
A frown shuts out the light.
Sigh, and you “rake in” nothing,
Work, and the prize is won;
For the very man
With backbone can
By nothing be outdone.
Hustle and fortune awaits you;
Shirk! and defeat is sure;
For there’s no chance
Of deliverance
For the chap who can’t endure.
Sing and the world’s harmonious,
Grumble, and things go wrong,
And all the time
You are out of rhyme
With the busy, bustling throng.
Kick, and there’s trouble brewing,
‘Whistle, and life is gay,
And the world’s in tune
Like a day in June,
And the clouds all melt away.
By L. A. Miller.
A rather fascinating and intelligent
young lady recently asked me for ad-
vice. She said, “I am about to marry
a man who is deeply absorbed in bus-
iness affairs, and he is one of those
who carry their cares to their homes,
sleeps with them and eats with them.
He goes to his office and works at
night, and never, or at least hardly
ever, has time to go to the opera, and
sometimes even neglects going to
church. All with him is business.
Would you advise me to marry him?
Is there a way to break that ‘business’
spell that binds him so closely? Can
1 control him by love, or will I have
to resort to diplomacy and strategy ?”
Strategy is the proper caper. But
to be a successful strategist you must
be deeply interested in the cause for
which you labor. To be deeply inter-
ested in a man is to love him. That
your strategy may be successful it
must be worked very quietly—so qui-
etly, indeed, that he will never suspect
it. If he does, your work will be
worse than vain, for in his estimation
your motives will all be sinister, your
kiss the kiss of a Judas, and your ca-
resses but the fawnings of a syco-
phant. If you attempt strategy, be
most mighty careful not to let him
find it out. If you are as deeply in-
terested in the man as you say you
are, the probabilities are you can so
disguise your strategy with genuine
affection as to hide it from him en-
tirely. But don’t let the cat out of
the bag, :
Husbands are not always what they
seem, neither are wives, and each are
very much what the other makes
them. Most young women regard
matrimony as the aim and end of life.
So it is to many. They read of love,
think of it, dream of it, talk of it and
pray for it until they become so
wrought up over it that they are lia-
ble to mistake a passing fancy for it.
Then they are delighted, and chatter,
and sing and dream. They don’t know
what it is, but they have it. Too often
tis but the shadow they have caught.
You may never have thought of it,
but men more often marry for love
than women. In this they act un-
wisely, for if there is not a large
amount of respect and esteem on both
sides love soon flies, leaving the un-
fortunate pair hopelessly stranded as
far as happiness is concerned. Re-
spect and esteem are sure to beget
love, but love is not apt to beget re-
spect and esteem. It may in some in-
stances, but it is not to be relied up-
on. The more enduring fire burns with
less flame than that which lasts but
for a moment, like the glare from the
burning rushes that dazzles and
blinds, then quickly fades, leaving be-
hind a darkness more intense than
that which it came to dispel.
If a woman would exercise as much
care in selecting a husband as she does
in choosing a domestic she would hit
the nail on the head oftener than she
does. But, somehow or cther, a wom-
an is almost sure to make a fist of hit-
ting a nail. It is as often her thumb
nail as the one she is trying to hit.
That is a bad fist to make, but not as
bad as the one she may make in se-
that which it came to dispel.
The man who goes out to buy a
horse, or a hunting dog for his own
use is often more careful and exer-
~ cises better judgment in making his
selection than when he is choosing a
wife. This is a rather tough state-
ment, but it is as true as it is tough.
An extra fine coat of hair on a horse
is sure to excite a suspicion that the
animal has been gotten up to sell, and
he makes careful inquiry as to its dis-
position and habits. Seven to ten he
finds it to be a kicker, a biter or a
balker. A dog that makes up with
him on the instant, fondles over him,
rubs against his legs, licks his
hands and cries after him is almost
sure to prove giddy and untrue in the
field, thereby spoiling all the satisfac-
tion and pleasure he might have de-
rived from the hunt. In selecting a
wife he allows the dress to count for
all it appears to be worth and accepts
the manifestations of affection as the
evidence of true love.
It is the easiest thing in the world
to work a husband, even if he is com-
pletely absorbed in business. He is
never so far gone that he will not ap-
preciate a good dinner cooked just to
his taste. Study his peculiar tastes
and cater to them. This is diplomacy.
Do it so naturally and with such ap-
parent indifference that he can never
suspect that you have an object in it.
This is strategy.
He likes a bright fire. Let there al-
ways be a bright fire burning in sea-
son. He prefers to sit in a certain
corner, let him always find his chair
in that corner—not in a way, however,
that would lead him to suspect that
you put it there. He thinks you look
better in a certain dress or with a cer-
tain 1ibbon on your hair. Let it so
happen that you dress just in that
way. There are a thousand and one
things you can do that will combine
to make his home more attractive and
enjoyable than a club room or an al-
leged business office. But for good-
ness sake don’t let him know you are
doing this on purpose. If there is
anything that will make home dis-
tasteful to a man it is to be met at the
door with tales of trouble, complaints
of pains and stories of distress. He
has a surfeit of these in his own af-
fairs, and he wants to be rid of them
when he gets home. If you have trou-
bles don’t fire them at him as soon as
he puts his head inside of the door.
Wait until he is feeling comfortable
and in proper mood to hear them pa-
If you want a new carpet, a piece of
furniture, or what not, bide your
time, and, when he is in the proper
humor, incidentally remark that such
and such things would improve the ap-
pearance of the room or add to your
personal comfort. Drop it then. The
first thing you know he will get it and
ask you what you think of his taste
in such matters. Then don’t you tip
the fat into the fire by telling him it
was your suggestion, but rather kiss
him and tell him he is a man of rare
thoughtfulness and faultless taste.
You can’t catch a man on a hook of
flattery unless he is a gudgeon, hut
you ean shut his eyes most effectually
by catering to his tastes, providing
you appear not to be doing it. Men
are as contrary as the very but
comparisons are odious. He does not
think he is, and will not calmly lie un-
der a charge to that effect.
Be specially careful not to allow
him even to suspect that you have
ever noticed a sign of perversity in
his nature. Can a woman do all this?
Yes, if she respects, esteems and loves
her husband. If she doesn’t she can’t,
no matter how much she may try. She
will then be prompted to please only
through mercenary motives. These
cannot be hidden. Unless she finds
some pleasure in which she does it
will not be well done; it will lack fin-
ish and grace, which are the principal
Married life, when it hits, is a great
success, but there is a terrible mess
when it misses. Better a thousand
times live and die single than make a
Webster must have been pretty well
booked up or he could never have been
so explicit as this:
“What do you think of marriage?
I take it as those who deny purgatory;
It loosly contains a heaven or hell;
There’s no third place in it.”
Remember one thing, never try to
reform a man. The man who will not
reform and show works meet for re-
pentance before marriage will not do
so afterwards, because there are very
few men who will do more for a wife
than they will for a sweetheart.
Cut in Army May Drive Many Out of
the Service.
John Doughboy, the buck private of
the army, has suffered a cut of pay
from $30 a month to $21, according to
an announcement received at Camp
He is not the only sufferer, howev-
er, for on July 1 the new schedule of
pay provided in legislation by Con-
gress went into effect and reductions
have been made all down the line. Ar-
my men in opposing the cut urged
that the reduction would force many
men out of the service.
At Camp Dix it was stated that a
lower morale has followed the cut im-
mediately as men who are about to
leave the service say they will not re-
enlist at the reduced figure.
The officers proportionately have
suffered a greater reduction than the
men, the average ranging from 10 to
15 per cent. of their pay, already low-
er than that of firemen or policemen
in Philadelphia so far as the officers
below the grade of major are concern-
ed. Army officers buy their uniforms
and pay for their food and other ex-
penses much like civilians, and it was
said many of the junior officers are
preparing to quit the service.
A distinct effort is being made to
have Congress repeal this portion of
the legislation together with the re-
peal of that provision of the same bill
providing for the reduction in the
number of regular army officers. As
the regular army has no vote, the na-
tional guard, organized reserve and
veterans are bringing political pres-
sure to bear, it was said.
An inveiitor is now working at the
Chicago Rothacker film laboratories
on a plan whereby the blind may at
least approximate the sensation of
“seeing” motion pictures. This in-
ventor already had several important
scientific discoveries to his credit and
his new cause was such a worthy one
that Wattersan R. Rothacker assigned
him a corner of the laboratory as a
workshop and instruced the technical
staff to be of any assistance possible.
The fundamental principle of the
invention is a new material which is
super-sensitive to light. The invent-
or says he is making progress toward
perfecting this new material. The
blind person would sit in a darkened
room with a strip of this material
drawn tightly over the palm of his
hand. By means of a miniature pro-
jection machine motion pictures
would be projected on this material,
just as one on a theatre screen at
present. This material, being so ul-
tra-sensitive to light, would have the
effect of accentuating the light and
shadows, as it were, to the point
where the blind person could feel the
movements, or play, of the lights and
The inventor, of course, does not
clai that blind persons ever will be
able to experience the full beauty of
a motion picture, but that they will
be able to follow the action of a photo-
drama. He says that the invention he
is striving for should seem no more
impossible than movies themselves or
the phonograph would have been con-
sidered 100 years ago.
Harrisburg, Pa.—Reports received
from 712 correspondents show that
there has been drought in some sec-
tions of the State and excess precipi-
tation in other parts, yet conditions
as a whole have been favorable and
show very little change from July 1st
forecast, according to the report is-
sued by L. H. Wible, director Bureau
of Statistics, Pennsylvania Depart-
ment of Agriculture.
Wheat—The prospect for wheat on
August 1 was 95 per cent. of normal
and indicates an average yield of 19.2
bushels per acre and a production of
25,067,500 bushels, as compared with
23,271,500 bushels last year and 24,-
079,870 bushels, the average produc-
tion for the past ten years.
Qats—There has been some com-
plaint of the oats lodging and loss on
this account, however, the prospect on
August 1 was 94 per cent. of a nor-
mal or full crop, which is indicative
of an average yield of 34.7 bushels
per acre and production of 39,773,000.
The crop last year was estimated at
33,512,000 bushels and the average
for the past ten years at 37,008,000
Corn—The condition of the crop for
grain on August 1 was estimated at
95 per cent. and is indicative of a
yield of 45.6 bushels per acre and an
aggregate production of 60,944,000
bushels, as compared with 59,637,400
bushels last year and 59,446,200 bush-
els, the average production for the
past ten years. This report does not
include the acreage cut for silage.
Buckwheat—It appears that 222,-
850 acres have been seeded to buck-
wheat which is about the same acre-
age as sown last year. The condi-
tion of this cereal was 93 per cent.
and indicates an average yield of 19.9
bushels per acre and a total yield of
4,434,700 bushels against 5,247,600
bushels last year and 5,479,840 bush-
els, the average for the past ten years.
Pennsylvania usually takes the first
place in the production of this crop.
Tobacco—Weather conditions have
cen favorable and as a result the
prospect for tobacco is estimated at
94 per cent. which points to an aver-
age yield of 1,452 pounds per acre and
a total crop of 58,922,000 pounds.
Last year’s crop estimated at 53,809,-
300 pounds and the average for the
past ten years at 52,889,000 pounds.
Hay—The area of tame hay cut
this year is estimated at 2,906,265
acres, which is 105 per cent. of the
area harvested last year. The aver-
age yield per acre is estimated at 1.57
tons and the total production at 4,-
585,000 tons, as compared with 3,-
110,000 tons last year and the ten-
year average production of 4,099,400
Potatoes—Apparently there has not
been much damage by insects and
plant diseases, and with rather favor-
able weather, the outlook on’ August
1 was 92 per cent. of normal and fore-
casts an average yield of 104 bush-
els per acre and a total crop on the
farms of 23,479,000 bushels. Last
year’s estimate was 18,763,500 bush-
als and 23,194,300 bushels, the aver-
age for the past ten years.
Apples—The late spring frosts did
considerable damage to the fruit pros-
pects and largely as a result of this
the outlook on August 1 was estimat-
ed at 62 per cent. of normal which in-
dicates a total or agricultural produc-
tion of 11,486,700 bushels, as compai-
ed with 1,766,000 bushels last year
and 7,911,000 bushels, the average
production for the past three years.
Peaches—The outlook for a normal
peach crop was 51 per cent. of nor-
mal which is an improvement of five
points over July 1 forecast. On this
basis the total crop this year will ap-
proximate 1,104,600 bushels, as com-
pared with 264,500 bushels last year
and 950,600 bushels, the average for
the past three years.
——The “Watchman” gives all the
news while it is news.
It is up to the State Health Depart-
ment to see that every school child in
the Commonwealth gets the protection
against smallpox, for which the law
provides. A child must present for
admittance to school a certificate of
vaccination, which also certifies that
a subsequent examination by the vac-
cinating physician revealed a charac-
teristic postule of successful vaccin-
The medical school inspector must
see that the scar of vaccination ex-
ists. If it does not, although a cer-
tificate of vaccination has been pre-
sented, the child must be excluded
from school until protected against
small-pox. Recent examinations
showed that thousands of children whos
presented certificates, had never been
Under the Act of June 18, 1895,
amended June 5, 1919 teachers may
not accept certificates issued by local
physicians or the school medical in-
spector, exempting pupils from vac-
cination because of alleged physical
disability, nor is a statement certify-
ing to three unsuccessful vaccinations
a legal permit for school attendance
unless issued by the county medical
director, his deputy, or in communi-
ties having an organized health board
by the board of health physician.
The State Health Commissioner
has directed the county medical di-
rectors to appoint physicians in var-
ious sections of their counties as dep- |
uties to re-vaccinate, free of charge,
school children who have had unsue-
cessful attempts at vaccination, and
giving them a temporary certificate
for admission to school.
That a strict compliance with the
law requiring effective vaccination is
timely may be proven by the follow-
ing reports of the U. S. Public Health
1916 1619 1920 1921
California - 234 2053 4486 5580

Organized anti-vaccination propa-
ganda is probably responsible for the
large number of cases in California,
and their figures are interesting when
compared with those for Pennsylvania
where vaccination has been required
by law since 1895.
Col. W. J. Crookston, chief of the
division of school health, sates that
teachers and principals receive copies
of the vaccination law, with revised
rules and regulations, at the begin-
ning of each school year and that
there is no reason why these provis-
jons should not be stringently enfore-
Fishermen te Get License Buttons.
Harrisburg, Pa.—A system of but-
tons to identify holders of resident
fishermen’s license has been devised
by the State Department of Fisheries.
The first will be issued in January.
Licenses issued up to August 1st,
numbered approximately 167,000 and
it is believed the total will reach the
200,000 mark before the end of the
month. Northwestern Pennsylvania
leads, Luzerne having reported 13,-
504, and Lackawanna 10,989. Alle-
gheny and Philadelphia have not put
out many more than 5000.
Plants Wheat Too Early.
The average Pennsylvania farmer
plants his wheat a week or ten days
too early in order to gain the greatest
protection from the injury of the Hes-
sian fly. A schedule has been prepar-
ed showing the proper planting dates
for the various sections of the State.
For Centre county the most advanta-
geous time to plant wheat in order to
escape injury from the Hessian fly is
fron September 15th to September
