You never know folks if you judge
them by their job.

This is likewise the joyful season,
when the mail men earn all the money
they don’t get. :
A number of our larger cities voted
wet; they now find it is easier to vote
wet than to get wet.
Fred Schreffler, formerly of the
Gap, but now a resident of Lémont,
is reported as being quite seriously
While proving that their Kaiser
was responsible for the war, the Ger-
mans should not forget that they
were responsible for their Kaiser.
We don’t object to those southern

nuts but we wish to goodness they

Now that the Senate severely con-
demns and disapproves of the large
sums for campaign purposes, would it
mind stating just what figure it con-
siders allowable.
Now that the cold snap has subsid-
ed some people call it weather and
some call it climate; but if it ever
comes back what we'll call it won’t be
fit for publication.
We don’t know whether woman's
place is in the home or some where
else, but we. do know it’s a mighty
handy thing to have a woman in the
home when lunch time comes around.
Abner Noll and wife, accompanied
by Henry Noll and family, motored to
Harrisburg on Monday last, on their
annual visit to friends in the capital
city. They will be absent a few days.
Mr. George Horner, the faithful
Democrat from the head of Greens-
valley, came down to the Gap to vote
at the primary. When told that he
was too early, he said he knew he was
right as he saw it in the Centre Hall
They are still trying to reform ed-
ucation. They started, you will re-
member, in the well known Garden of
Eden. The fall of man, of which some
of us have heard so much, seems to
have been attributed to the higher
education of women.
Bryan is coming back. How far
back he is coming will probably not
be known until the Democratic Na-
tional convention has picked the can-
didate whom the Republicans expect
to defeat next fall. But reports from
Washington indicate that, though he
doesn’t yet know where he is going,
he, as usual, is on his way. Bryan’s
strength consists in his ability to cap-
italize the country’s discontent.
Doc Stover, the energetic builder
and carpenter, has for the time being
relinquished his job in the coal mining
district beyond Johnstown with a
view of erecting an up-to-date dwell-
ing on the lots recently purchased
from Mr. E. K. Keller, at the cross-
roads, adjacent to Stitzer’s store.
From reliable sources it was learned
that the new structure, when complet-
ad, will be a credit to this community.
Doc is a practical mechanic and knows
aow to do things.
Your correspondent and wife were
very agreeably surprised a few even-
ngs ago, on the occasion of a call
‘rom Mr. and Mrs. Lee Sampsel and
‘heir little three year old daughter
Margaret. Before returning home
Mrs. Sampsel told their bright little
rirl to tell us what their new pastor
said in church last Sunday. The
roungster forthwith proceded to re-
eat the Lord’s prayer in full. Much
0 our satisfaction, we decided that
he work of the child’s parents was
juite commendable, taking into con-
ideration the age of Margaret. Ire-
nember well the first little dutch
yrayer my mother taught me and
ater on the Lord’s prayer. Coming
rom a dear mother I can never for-
et. It might be advisable for other
nothers to follow in the footsteps of
Targaret’s mother.
Mr. Logue, of the State sportsmen
rganization, delivered an address a
ew evenings ago on trapping, at the
portsmen’s hall. He had a crowded
ouse and his address was a remarka-
le one and highly appreciated by all.

ress he becomes an encyclopedia of

tractive splendor. Our State game
protector followed Mr. Logue with a
very interesting and able address,
after which Mr. Mosier, who is too
well and favorably known in this com-
munity for me to attempt to throw
bouquets at him, gave the boys an el-
oquent and instructive talk along the
lines of game protection. Mosier al-
ways has an abundance of capital to
draw upon, without borrowing small
checks with other men’s endorsement
upon them. The entertainment was
a most interesting one and duly ap-
preciated by the vast assemblage.
Public sentiment seems to favor the
problem of getting more men teach-
ers in the schools. Patrons seem to
think that the schools need the firm
touch of men teachers as much as the
softening influence of women teach-
ers. Reports place the proportion as
one man to 100 women teachers, which
is considered wholly insufficient.
Meanwhile men are being attracted
to other lines by the disproportionate
reward of teaching. It is now sug-
gested that a standard be established
requiring a certain proportion of men
teachers and providing for appropri-
ate pay. The teaching profession has
been turned over to women largely
for one reason; it costs a trifle less.
The effect of this policy has been to
drive men to other work even before
the war increased the cost of living
to its present rate. The increases lo
teachers forced by this cause has not
materially altered the general ratio,
despite the theory of equal pay for
equal work. The fact has been that
teaching has been too lightly regard-
ed instead of being recognized as the
foundation of citizenship. It is at
last being forced upon general knowl-
edge that in popular eduction, as in
anything else, the price must be paid
for quality.
Our quiet, law-abiding village devi-
ated from its general principles last
Monday evening. Two families, neigh-
bors residing adjacent to the post-
office, had for unknown reasons a
grudge against each other. A board-
er at the Joe Schmoyer home lay in
wait for his neighbor, a Mr. Hocken-
berry, and was bent on having a fight
then and there. Mr. Hockenberry
pulled his coat ready for business,
when to his surprise a bunch of wom-
en from the neighboring house came
to the rescue and threw a number of
stones at Mr. Hockenberry. A suit
and counter-suit followed. Such con-
duct in a civilized community is very
objectionable. These offenders should
remember what Solomon, the wisest
of men, said: “Be not hasty in thy
spirit to anger, for anger resteth in
the bosom of fools.” The passionate
may, when under its influence, become
incapable of distinguishing right from
wrong. Anger is a violent emotion of
the mind, arising from an injury eith-
er real or imaginary, which vents
itself against the offending party.
We should be kind, gentle, and affable
in deportment to all. If you are not
so at all times try the experiment
and God will bless your efforts with
the richest of blessings.

Herbert H. Stover has been award-
ed a contract with a New York calen-

Spring time is here and in order to
keep a respectable and healthy town
every one should’ co-operate in the re-
moval of all rubbish and stale matter
that may have accumulated during the
fall and winter, thus adding to the
surety of a healthy atmosphere.
Lest we be blamed for saying some-
thing we do not know anything about
we wish to state that the writer was
wrong in referring to John Bunyan in
last week’s paper. The picture refer-

ing Glass.” We knew better when we
wrote the article, but did not think.

lull in the carpenter business there.
He says it may be a week or ten days

there will be no trouble this year in
that industry.
Wallace Debler, who recently be-
came one of our citizens, has made
many improvements on the property
formerly owned by Louisa Smull and
tenanted by George H. Smull; and to
say that Wallace likes things in an
orderly manner is putting it mildly,
and in this respect he has the co-op-
eration of his good wife, who, by the
way, is an example to many women
who have conceived the idea that all
that is theirs to do is to dress and run
over the neighborhood and tell things
about their neighbors, neglecting the
duties of the home. Mrs. Debler takes
pride in assisting her husband to keep
things in proper order. We are not
getting paid for saying this, either,
but the public can see for themselves.

. ——In Louisiana during the grind-
ing season the negro children eat su-
gar cane in abundance. One day an
old negro was heard reprimanding a
negro boy whom he'saw eating cane
after cane. “Boy,” he said, “ain’t I
done tole you not to eat so much
cane? Don’t you know cane killed.
Abel 2”—The Western (West Phila-
delphia High School).
The little crossroads schoolhouse held only a score
of pupils. In case of fire, exit was easy for all.
Today our schools literally turn away pupils, often
working many classes in morning and afternoon
shifts. Despite constant fire drills we frequently
have appalling disasters from such crowded build-
. ings. Suppose one of the victims was your child.
A school building of concrete being fireproof is not
only safe for children, but also safe for the taxpayer’s
money—for it is permanent. And in first cost it is
but 69%, more than one of impermanent materials.
Ask your building material dealer to demonstrate
to you what is true building economy. He knows.
