In “Giard’s” column in a recent is- sue of the Philadelphia Inquirer ap- peared the following, which will be read with interest by many Centre countains: One of the prize stories related by that master storyteller, the late W. U. Hensel, of Lancaster, once Attorney General of Pennsylvania, revolved about an extraordinary historical in- cident. A traveler riding on horseback, from Philadelphia westward through the State, stopped for a night’s rest at a farm house. It was the day after election. After the traveler had eaten a mod- est supper, the old farmer asked him if he had heard how the elections had resulted. “No,” said the stranger, “the re- turns had not all come in before I left the city.” “I just wondered,” replied the host, “how the voting went. You see my son Bill was running for Governor here in Pennsylvania and my son John was running for Governor out in Cal- ifornia.” The farmer was Mr. Bigler and the fact was that both Bill and John had been elected Governor of their respect- ive States. : : I recall no similar incident in American history where two brothers in the same year became Governor of a State. 3 . John Bigler and William Bigler were a pair of remarkable men. The former was born in Cumberland coun- ty ten years before his younger broth- er. They were printers in the office of the Centre Democrat at Bellefonte. John studied law and was a California “Forty-niner.” William went over to Clearfield county and started the Clearfield Dem- ocrat—a staunch supporter of Andrew Jackson. When but twenty-seven years of age he became a State Sen- tor. ir 54 the autumn of 1851 John was nominated by the Democrats for Gov- ernor of California and William was nominated by the Democrats for Gov- ernor of Pennsylvania. As I said before, both were elected and John was re-elected for a second term but William was beaten on his second trial. However, he afterwards went to the United States Senate. ————————————————————— — The production of crude petro- leum in the United States In 1906 was 126,493,936 barrels.

To Ezra Daggett belongs the hon- or of introducing canning as an indus- try in the United States (1815-1819). He had learned the art in the “old country,” and practiced it in New York city, where he packed salmon, lobsters and oysters. As early at 1821, William Under- wood, of Boston, put up preserves in glass, but it was not until 1838 that he began to substitute tin. Comically crude were the early cans. All were hand-made, and sixty a day was considered a large output. For the piece of tin required for each can was first drawn with careful com- pass then cut out by shears, while a tremendous amount of solder was used both for the seams and the cementing of tops and bottoms. Amusing features of the early in- dustry were the experiments in can- ning corn. Isaac Winslow, of Maine, was a pioneer in that special line. It was first put up in a cumbersome way on the cob. This proving imprac- ticable and wasteful, the kernels were cut off by the use of a knife curved to the cob. A machine worked by hand followed. Finally, and not until 1886, came the power-driven machine. tia An New Parcel Post Service. The conversation over the garden fence had taken anything but a friend- ly turn. “An’ if your boy ’Erbert ties any more cans on our dog’s tail,” was Mrs. Moggin’s stern ultimatum. “’¢’ll ’ear about it, that’s all. Oh, an’ per’aps you've done with the saucepan you borrowed last Monday.’ “Frbert,” asked Mrs. Grubb shrilly, “what ‘ave you been doin’ to Mrs. Moggin’s dog?” “Nothing, ma!” replied the small boy, unblushingly. “There!” said the mother, triumph- antly. “An’ you returned the sauce- pan yesterday, didn’t you, dearie?” “Sent it by ’er dog!” replied ’Erbert, quite calmly. nem A million men have turned to One Eleven Cigarettes —a firm verdict for superior quality. 1 cigarettes —— “It’s fine to wake up in the morning and hear the leaves whisper- ing outside your window.” “Yes, but I could never stand hear- ing the grass mown.” ——Subseribe for the “Watchman.” —————— CASTORIA Bears thesignature of Chas.
