tion, Philadelphia, Burned.
Fire early on Monday practically
destroyed the train shed of Broad
Street station, the Philadelphia ter-
minus of the Pennsylvania railroad.
A quantity of mail and baggage and
a number of passenger coaches also
were consumed. A huge passenger
locomotive crashed through the train
floor of the shed and was wrecked.
The flames spread westward and did
not reach the main building contain-
ing the waiting rooms and ticket of-
fices. These, however, were damaged
There has not yet been an official
estimate of the loss, but it is believed
it will approximate at least $1,000,000.
A large number of firemen were over-
come by smoke, but no one was ser-
The fire started shortly after one
o’clock a. m., under the wooden plat-
form in the train shed and spread so
rapidly that many passengers in sleep-
ing cars standing on the tracks had
difficulty in making their escape.
Dense volumes of black smoke soon
filled the shed and poured into the
waiting room and other parts of the
station. Incoming passengers, how-
ever, managed to grope their way
through and find the exits. Hundreds
of persons waiting for outgoing trains
fled from the building when the smoke
began to come through the windows
It was under the shed on the street
floor that the mail rooms and express
baggage and express stations were lo-
cated. A large force of men with
trucks attempted to remove the mail,
but they were driven off by fire and
smoke before they had completed their
job. How much was destroyed or
damaged by water could not be learn-
A number of trains were in the shed
when the fire started. Some of them
were gotten out but a dozen or more
coaches caught fire and were burned
before an engine could be attached.
Extraordinary efforts were made to
keep the fire from spreading to the
main building and to nearby strue-
There were nearly 200 passengers
in the ten sleeping cars in the station
when the fire started. They were
aroused and told there was no imme-
diate danger. The cars were pulled
out of the shed by shifting engines.
When the big shed was built more
than forty years ago it was proudly
referred to by the railroad as the
“Portal to Philadelphia.”
It was 707
feet long, 307 feet wide and 100 feet
high. The shed covered sixteen tracks
and there were eight platforms.
Until the big shed is rebuilt or tem-
porary arrangements made to run
trains to the Broad Street station, all
traffic will be diverted to the West

Our Children’s day exercises Sun-
day last were a wonderful success.
Miss Ella Herman and a score of oth-
er earnest workers, worked indus-
triously the week previous preparing
the multitude of children. They did
their work exceedingly well and de-
serve great credit for their undivided
efforts. The real object of Children’s
day exercises is to give children re-
sources that will endure as long as
life; that time will ameliorate, not de-
stroy; occupation that will render
sickness tolerable, solitude pleasant,
age venerable, life more dignified and
useful, and finally death less terrible.
The early instruction imbibed from
the teacher’s or parent’s life, has the
strongest influence in forming the fu-
ture character. Before the mind is
mature enough to think for itself, we
look to those whom nature has consti-
tuted our guardians, to correct and
sanction our opinions. In this way
the parental and teacher’s authority
gains a hold upon the mind of the
child that never can be annihilated;
and happy indeed, would it be if the
result were always the formation of
a noble and manly character. The
contemplation of the period of child-
hood—the earliest spring-time of life,
is replete with most tender interest.
We should remember that the system
of the child is capable of constant
modification; hence it is our duty, as
well as our power, in a great degree
to impart mentally and physically,
that standard of progress and health
so essential to the happiness of the
child. Of all the acts of folly and
cruelty is to press on infancy the task
fitted for youth, or demand from
youth the wisdom of manhood. It is
rending and scattering the blossoms
in order to reach the fruit, which, if
obtained, is immature, unnatural, and
therefore, unpleasant. God, who, in
rendering man the most perfect of
His creatures, has evidently made his
progress the slowest toward the at-
tainment of his power. That indo-
lence must be conquered and industry
excited in children, there is no deny-
ing. Parents should at all times give
good example and be reverent in de-
portment in the presence of their off-
spring. Our Children’s day was a
glorious occasion and will long be re-
membered by all participants.” It cc-
curs to me that all church organiza-
tions that ignore Children’s day serv-
ices are back numbers; lacking enter-
prise and efficiency.

To Fit Carload of Berkshire Barrows.
What is probably the most import-
ant step to be taken by a State swine
breeders’ organization is the assem-
bling at State College of over a hun-
dred head of Berkshire pigs by the
Pennsylvania State Berkshire associa-
tion. This number of pigs is to be
fed, cared for and fitted for the next
International Livestock exposition by
the department of animal husbandry
of the Pennsylvania State College.
At the annual meeting of the State
Berkshire association, at Harrisburg,
it was suggested by one of the State
College specialists that the Berkshire
breeders of the State choose as one
project for the year assembling of a
carload of Berkshire barrows. The
thought in mind was Pennsylvania
Berkshire representation at the Inter-
national show at Chicago, which is
the world’s greatest fat stock show.
State College, through the animal
husbandry, offered the facilities of
the swine farm, and as a result over
a hundred Berkshires are now being
selected in the various hog growing
communities in the State. The agri-
cultural extension service, through the
livestock specialists and the county
agents, is assisting in locating and se-
lecting the barrows. It is recognized
that if the best showing is to be made
at Chicago it will be necessary to have
not only a uniform lot of pigs but al-
so the best animals to be found in the
E. M. Christen, extension swine spe-
cialist, has already located about thir-
ty head of Berkshires in three days’
time, in three different counties. Bi
the middle of June it is expected that
all the pigs will have been assembled
at the college and will be nicely start-
ed on feed preparatory to the carload
lot show as a feature of the 1923 In-
W. F. Rishel, of the Pennsvalley
stock farm, Centre Hall, will furnish
two barrows for this carload exhibit.
Mz. Rishel is one of the good Berk-
shire breeders of the State, and his
entries in this first carload exhibit of
Berkshires from Pennsylvania, will
give a good account of themselves at
the International livestock show next
