‘none has any more marvelous possi-
Bellefonte, Pa., March 9, 1923.
By Clarence Flynn.
He wasn’t rich; he wasn't great,
His place was lowly and obscure.
His clothing was not up-to-date,
His house was tumbled-down and poor.
No special honor did he claim.
He never walked with lords and kings.
No glory has illumined his name,
But he was kind to helpless things.
He won no victories to boast.
He made no conquests, waged no strife.
He never led a conquering host;
He lived an unpretentious life.
But when is writ the judgment scroll,
And Time its final verdict brings,
This will be said of him; his soul
‘Was rich in love for helpless things.
By L. A. Miller.
Of all the wonderful vistas that the
science of the present age has opened
to us to look down, it seems to me that
bilities at the end than the realization
that the impressions which we receive
by our sense are caused by vibrations
of varying rapidities.
Vibrations of from 25 to 30,000 a
second we receive as sound. Then
there is a gap. And then vibrations of
from one million to two millions a sec-
ond we call electricity. Vibrations at
the rate of 50 millions a second we get
through our vision as rays of red
light, and the color scale increases to
violet rays at 1,000 billions a second.
One more gap, and then we reach the
X-Rays at 250 trillions a second. Now,
not only is it intensely interesting to
perceive these relationships, but even
more interesting is the thought that
immediately comes to the scientist’s
mind—shall we not come some day to
understand the vibrations between, to
control them and respond to them?
Is it not possible that the key to all
the mysteries of the universe, the se-
crets not only of this world, but of the
other world, lie in these gaps?
We all know that Edison has been
working at some mechanism to make
it possible for those who have passed
beyond to communicate with us if they
wish to. Many have made fun of him
on this account, and said that his
great intellect must be tottering. My
faith is with Edison—not necessarily
that he will do the thing, but that he
has some good reason for thinking
that some of these wonderful vistas
that have been opening up might lead
in that direction. Ever since I out-
grew the conventional Heaven of
golden floors and harps, I have won-
dered if Heaven might not be a place
in which we take in happiness through
many senses that we do not possess
here on earth. That is, if the creative
force could give us the joy of sound
hearing, why could it not give us oth-
er happinesses through other senses
that no one on earth can possess or
can imagine? If it can give us sex
love, and mother love, and father love
here, might it not have other great
emotions to give us in a further ex-
Now, may it not be possible that
this is true, and that these missions
of vibrations which we do not respond
to here, do manifest themselves to us
when we pass out of the body and in-
to the spirit world?
Of course, I am talking about mat-
ters of which I know nothing; but |
since the vistas have been opened to
SHOWS NEED OF EARLY CHANG-
ES IN GAME LAWS.
“Unless the State Legislature
changes the law governing the killing
of bucks so that the limit is set at
bucks with two points to one antler
the time will soon come when there
will be nothing but spike bucks left
to kill,” declared Dr. H. J. Donaldson,
in discussing the proposed changes in
the game laws, and the criticism which
they have evoked.
“In 1907, when does and fawns
were first protected, only two hundred
deer were legally killed in the State.
Last year the number had increased
to 6,115. The increase in the kill is
due in part to the greater amount of
game and also very largely to the in-
crease in the number of hunters.
“Some sections of the State have
been so closely hunted that practicaily
the only deer being killed are spikes
and two-points,” Dr. Donaldson de-
clares. “The carcasses are small and
but few of the heads are being mount-
ed. Few sportsmen other than the
amateur with his first deer care to
have a head mounted unless it has a
good rack of antlers.
“Sportsmen who have gone to these
hunted-out sections are disgusted and
discouraged and are crowding into
sections which have not been hunted
so closely. The result will be that in
but a short time these territories, too,
will yield only spike bucks or those
with very small antlers, and hunting
camps now enjoying almost absolute
privacy will be surrounded by many
other camps covering the same
“We here in this section of the
State do not realize just what has
taken place in other less favored sec-
tions. Figures compiled by the game
commission from accurate information
show just what the situation is.
“In 1921, 4,830 deer were legally
killed. In 1922 the number reached
6,115. In 1921 spike bucks constitut-
ed 13 per cent. of the total; in 1922
they constituted 18 per cent.
“Some sections of the State have
had two points to an antler. In 1922
this item reached 20.5 per cent.
“Tt will be seen that the percentage
of small-antlered bucks increased.
“Now take those with smaller ant-
lers. In 1921, 26 per cent. of the
bucks had three points to an antler.
In 1922 this was reduced to 25.5 per
“The great decrease was in the per-
centage of bucks with four or more
points to an antler. In 1921 they con-
stituted 45 per cent. and in 1922 but
36 per cent.
“From the above it is plainly ap-
parent that the percentage of bucks
with sizable racks of antlers is de-
creasing rapidly. If one year makes
such a difference is it not logical to
presume that each succeeding year
will bring a corresponding decrease
unless some remedy is obtained? The
only feasible remedy seems to be to
prohibit the killing of ‘baby bucks.’
“The ratio between the breeding
animals in many parts of the State
is greatly unbalanced, through the
wholesale killing of bucks. The male
deer greatly outnumber the female,
and too, there are few really mature
deer for breeding stock.
“Seth E. Gordon, secretary of the
game commission, points out that the
opposition to change in the deer law
us, is it not permissible for any one
to glance down them and wonder what |
may be the end? !
And could there be any more fascin- |
ating direction in which to send one’s
thoughts than these vistas offer? It
has hardly seemed as if the age to |
come could be more wonderful than |
the age just passed; with its steam-
engine, its steam-boat, its telephone,
its wireless, its flying machines. And!
yet, who would dare say that it may
not be infinitely more wonderful; that
powers and possibilities that we have
not yet the ability to imagine, may
not be opened to the human races?

Honey Good After 3,300 Years Burial.
Discovery in Tutankhamun’s tomb
of perfumes which retain their scent
recalls the equally amazing find in
1905 of a jar of honey, still liquid and
still preserving its characteristic scent
after 3,300 years!
This remarkable announcement was
made in a communication to the Na-
ticnal Geographic Society by James
Baikie. The honey was found in the
tomb of Yuaa and Thuaa, father and
mother of that Queen Tyi, whose in-
fluence played so great a part in Ak-
henaten’s religious reformation.
“The tomb was intact and the ob-
jects it contained were as perfectly
preserved as though they had only
been shut up a few weeks before,” Mr.
Baikie wrote. “An observer describ-
ed his sensations on entering the
place as being very much like those of
a man who enters a town house which
has been shut up for the summer.
“Armchairs stood about, beautiful-
ly carved and decorated with gold, the
cushions on one of them stuffed with
down, and covered with linen so per-
fectly preserved that they might have
heen sat upon or tossed about without
injury. Two beds of fine design deco-
rated with gold, occupied another part
of the chamber, while a light chariot
in perfect preservation stood in a cor-
“One looked from one article to
another with a feeling that the entire
human conception of time was wrong.
These were the things of yesterday, of
a year or two ago.”

trine, Willie?” asked the Sunday

stuff to a patient,” confidently answer-
ed wise Willie.

comes from sections of the State
| which some years ago offered most
strenuous opposition to, the elimina-
tion of the deer hound, and which not
so many years ago were opposed to
protection for deer and fawn, consid-
ering such protection unnecessary.
The hunters in these sections surely
must be convinced that the commis-
sion was right then, and should be
ready to believe that it is right now.”
Urged to Walk on Left Side of Coun-
Pedestrians on country roads are
advised to walk on the left side of
the road, facing oncoming traffic, by
Dal H. Lewis, of the American Auto-
“Courtesy on the part of the auto-
mobile driver demands the use of dim-
med lights at night,” said Mr. Lewis,
“and this factor, while it contributes
to the safety to passing motorists,
makes it difficult for the automobile
driver to see a pedestrian walking
along the edge of the road in the same
direction the car is traveling. This
difficulty is increased if the pedes-
trian wears dark clothing. The re-
sult is that the driver is practically on
top of the pedestrian before the latter
“Walking on the left-hand side of
the road is just as good for the pedes-
trian and enables him to see the ap-
proaching automobile in time to step
aside if the motorist does not see him
in time to swerve.”
Every house should have its life-guards.
The need of them is especially great when
diseases, the greatest foes of life, find al-
lies in the very elements, as colds, influen-
za, catarrh, the grip, and pneumonia do in
this stormy month.
The best way to guard against these dis-
eases is to strengthen the system with
Hood's Sarsaparilla—one of the greatest of
all life-guards.. It removes the conditions
in which these diseases make their most
successful attack, gives vigor and tone to
the vital organs and functions, and im-
parts a genial warmth to the blood.
Remember, the weaker the system the
greater the exposure to disease. Hood's
Sarsaparilla makes the system strong.
If the liver is torpid or the bowels are
sluggish, causing biliousness or consti-
pation, Hood's Pills will be found of great
service. They are especially made to be
taken with Hoods Sarsaparilla. 68-10

. An acquaintance related to me this
incident, or pair of incidents:
He went to a small florist shop up-
on request of his wife to purchase a
plant. He lived in an apartment.
Both he and his wife were city-bred
and knew nothing about the proper
care of plants. If all the plants they
purchased had survived, a small
green-house would have been required
to house them.
The florist asked, “Do you live in a
house or an apartment?” and on being
told by my friend that it was the lat-
ter, he asked, “Do you have a porch?”
The reply was in the negative.
Then the florist surveyed his stock
and selected a hardy fern—certainly
not the most expensive bit of plant
life in the shop. In detail he explain-
ed to the prospective customer how
to care for the fern, adding “If you
do the things I tell you, that fern will
last you a year, perhaps two.”
It was a sale. The man carried the
fern home and repeated the instruc-
tions to his wife. The fern grew and
grew, continually shooting out fresh
fronds to replace the old ones that
turned brown and crisp as the months
passed. This fern, because of the
florist’s unsolicited advice, lived long
beyond the promised period.
Poor business for the florist, you
say. If he'd kept his advice to himself
perhaps he’d have sold three or four
ferns in the same period of time.
But while the fern was growing, so
was the bank account of the chap
who bought it. He was buying a home
—with a porch—and with window
boxes and a fine little yard which re-
quired some shrubbery and an Eng-
lish box hedge.
He went back to the florist who sold
him the fern in the apartment house
days, rejecting bids from bigger flor-
ists and landscape gardeners who got
his name from a new building list
company. His order for the planting
work was placed with the little florist
who seemed to care more that a plant
should thrive than that he would ac-
complish a certain turnover of stock.
The check received in payment was
My acquaintance related this to me
purely as an incident. To me it seem-
ed that the florist in going out of his
way to explain the care of that fern
was either building better than he
actually knew or was shrewd enough
to know he was practicing a super
salesmanship, by creating confidence,
that must pay big dividends.
