Bemorralic Waldman, Bellefonte, Pa., August 25, 1922. HUSTLE AND GRIN. 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. A FEW POINTERS ON MEN. 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- tiently. 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 qualities. 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 mistake. 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 Dix. 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. MOVIES FOR THE BLIND. 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 shadows. 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. REPORT OF FARM CROPS. 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 bushels. 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 tons. 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. VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS | OF STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 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- ation. 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 vaccinated. 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 Service: SMALL-POX CASES. 1916 1619 1920 1921 California - 234 2053 4486 5580 Indiana - - - 1158 2833 5776 4800 Michigan - 1365 2381 4818 453 New Jersey - - 9 109 182 249 Pennsylvania - - 9¢ 299 215 212 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- ed. 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 Children Cry for Fletcher's 8 NAS v7 AS L031 a NNN The Kind You Have Always Bought, and which has been in use for over thirty years, has borne the signature of on the wrapper all these years just to protect the coming generations.
