Henry Noll and Earl Lego, last
Thursday, took an auto run to
Waynesboro, Pa., and Hagerstown,
Md. They were absent three days.
The trip was a strictly business ven-
Miss Bertha Rimmey, our efficient
nurse, was called to Pittsburgh a few
days ago. It is rumored that she ac-

hospitals in the Smoky city, and will
in all probability be stationed there
A very pleasant and agreeable 500
card party was held a few evenings
ago at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sam-
uel Noll. Twelve intimate friends
were the participants, constituting
three tables. A most enjoyable time
was the result. After a sumptuous
luncheon all repaired to their homes,
delighted with their evening’s enter-
Because men debar the outside

in secret, does not prove theirs is of

or that they are a different order of

ply serves the purpose of protection.
All worthy things must be protected
to be preserved.
On Monday night and Tuesday
morning we had a thirteen inch fall of
snow. It looked as though we might
have a repetition of what happened
on April 18th, 1854, at which time
snow began falling on the evening of
April 18th and continued snowing for
two straight days when by actual
measurement the snow had reached a
depth of twenty-two inches.
It is not always true that a rolling
stone (man) gathers no moss. If you
roll with the rising tide you are all
right, but if in declining times you
start, you will only roll the lower.
Remember our remedy for hard times,
which is to save money in good times,
and the safest place to put your mon-

hard times it will not pay to spend
your money running around the coun-
try hunting for things that are just
as scarce abroad as at home.
The guys who were busily engaged
in poking fun at Billy Ross for buy-
ing an old shack for his future home,
since retiring from farming, are now
amazed at the transformation. The
old portion of the premises was re-
modeled throughout and new additions
were erected, so that now the future
home of Billy Ross is a model of archi-
tecture. It goes to show what brain
and cold cash can accomplish in the
way of changing an old shack into a
palatial and up-to-date home.
Frank Kanaar, of the Beatty Motor
company, moved into the well equip-
ped home of Mrs. Rachel Zimmerman
on Wednesday last. The premises
have been remodeled throughout and
are in most excellent shape, taking
comfort and convenience into consid-
eration. The Kanarrs have many
friends at the Gap, hence it is that
our community is delighted to have
them for permanent neighbors. De-
sirable people are always welcomed at
the Gap, while undesirables are de-
Parents too often express the idea
that boys and girls should not play
together at school, nor associate with
one another in any way. This is
wrong. The ordinary school girl is
looked upon as one to be subjected to
other treatment than the rest of the
world, closely guarded, reproved and
reprimanded and chaperoned. She is
denied the society of her school boy
friends, or is not allowed their pres-
ence in her home, the freedom and
sweetness of youth and its enthusi-
asm and innocence are absolutely
locked out. The watchful eye and list-
ening ear of the mother is directed to
all that is going on, and thus the
youthful conversation loses the pecu-
liar grace and flavor of innocent
youth, and the behavior of young peo-
ple becomes constrained and unnat-
ural. Would it not be well for moth-
ers to realize that the youth who can-
not be trusted with their daughters is
not a proper person to be allowed the
entrance of their homes? There is
as much honor and sincerity and in-
tegrity among school boys as there is

among school girls, and has not the
real mother watched and trained and
guarded the sons of her household as
she has her daughters? The mother
of the girl is tender of her own, but
like the hen, too often seeks to smoth-
er another one’s chickens. The girl
denied the pleasure of associating
with her boy classmates usually be-
comes a wilful and disobedient girl.
It is during the years of school life
that the sweetest ties are formed; ties
that the after years of burden-bear-
ing cannot destroy or dim. The fresh,
sweet, early love becomes the staple

The numerous applicants now in the
field for political advancement should
remember that he, only, is a true
statesman whose labors are devoted to
the preservation of liberty, and that
man who enters the field of politics
for the purpose of furthering some
private scheme of his own concoction,
or engages himself in the interest of
any one class of the people, unless it
be for the purpose of counteracting
some untoward policy of another, is
not deserving the honor af statesman,
nor should he be entrusted with the
affairs of a people whose happiness
depends upon the preservation of their
liberties. If the truth shall make you
free, liberty is therefore the truth,
and the Creator cares not what opin-
ions you hold or what actions you per-
form, so they do not infringe upon the
rights of others. This is the triumph
of the Golden Rule, and when man-
kind reaches the zenith of their exist-
ence they will tolerate with profound
respect, all men’s opinions favoring
liberty and, just as sternly oppose
those savoring of tyranny.

Bertha, thou hast gone forever; can it be
That we no more thy face shall see?
Thy cradle stands there as before,
But no dear baby any more.
Her voice is hushed and her grave is filled,
And in her home fond hearts are chilled;
Though we must toil on as of yore,
And dream of our loved one gone before.
Our darling Bertha is safe from harm,
As she sleeps in the Saviour's loving arm;
But in that home on the other shore,
There will be parting there no more.
And in our sorrow we can tell
Our Father doeth all things well.
In the beautiful hereafter—
In the life that is to be—
Somewhere in God’s sweet forever,
Bertha, we hope to meet with thee.

How to Be Book Collector
The book collector must, in the first

Arthur Machen, He must altogether
shut his ears to the babblers and their
He must keep his eyes upon the book

title will have risen to $5, and so on.

How to Make Marble
A process for making imitations of
statuary marble, onyx and other multi-
colored stones, has been devised in
France, About 1,000 parts of alum,
from 10 to 100 parts of heavy spar
(barium sulphate) and 100 parts of
water are mixed with the requisite
pigments, and the liquid mass is boiled
down and cast in a mold. The amount
of heavy spar used varies with the
degree of translucence desired. After
being molded and dried, the artificial
stone thus produced can be polished
and finished as desired.
How to Make Hole in Glass
It is said that a hole may be made
in thin glass by pressing upon the
glass a disk of wet clay. Make a
hole through this clay the size of the
hole desired in the glass, being sure
that the glass is clean and bare. Now
pour molten lead into the hole and the
lead and glass will drop through at
once. The qulck heating of the glass
at one point causes a circular crack
to form, the outline of which cor-
responds to the hole made In the clav.
