Mrs. Crumlish and son Billy re-
turned home on Saturday evening,
after an absence in Pittsburgh for
over three weeks. They were called

The lawn fete held at the Bent Bell
home on Friday evening proved a de-

cially. Mrs. Lide Bell, teacher of a

are being complimented for the way
they handled the proposition.
Ammon Kerstetter and family made
a grand swing around on Sunday last.
They motored to Reedsville, thence to

The roof of Lee Sampsel’s residence
caught fire on Saturday. Our fire
company responded very promptly,
but upon arriving at the scene of the
conflagration discovered that a bucket
brigade had succeeded in extinguish-
ing the blaze. The damage was slight,
only a small hole burned in the roof.
Some young men have a variety of
poetical and classical quotations on
hand which they try to work in at
every opportunity. A quotation is a
good thing in conversation when it
fits in neatly, but very ugly when
there is no place for it, and it has to
be passed on; like a patent medicine
sticker on a clean window pane.
I was just meditating over an old
saying of our Pennsylvania Dutch
farmers, as follows: “Ein keiler April
und May brings feil froucht und hay.”
A cold April and May brings much
grain and hay. If there is any virtue
in this old saying we should have an
abundant harvest. However, time
alone will tell; we must await the out-
Charles Bilger has left his cozy
home at the Gap and moved to his
new home, (the old Horner farm) near
the top of the mountain and at the
head of Greensvalley. Mr. Bilger
very wisely secured the services of
Dick Packer, who by the way is an
expert farmer, and aside from the
management of the farm, he will have
little to do with the turning of the
soil, as his lumbering interests require
his undivided attention. The old farm
is being improved in many details.
As a matter of history, of the vast
amount of children born, fully one-
half die before they reach the age of
five years. It is mere mockery of cre-
ative wisdom to suppose for a moment
that this enormous fatality is una-
voidable. The smallest injury, quite
unforseen, will in numerous cases
prove fatal in a very brief space of
time. There is a much greater chance
of prolonging the lives of these inno-
cents when proper care is taken than
when the proper care is neglected. It
is imperative that all mothers of a
family should studiously educate
themselves on this important point,
which affects the health and longev-
ity of their offspring.
There is no fixed standard of phys-
ical perfection; each nationality or
each individual, for that matter, be-
ing at perfect liberty to establish
standards. What if the face does lose
its color, the eyes grow dull and wear
a dark circle, the expression become
pinched, the head aches, limbs and
feet swell, the hands become clammy,
the tongue coated, the temper soured
and the whole woman out of sorts?
It is the fashion to have a waist less
than twenty-five inches, and they
think they may as well be dead as to
be out of fashion. The woman whom

one man considers beautiful, may be
honestly denounced by another as be-
ing perfectly horrid. It seems queer,
but such is life.
I am fully convinced that women
and children rule this universe, our
government and its officials, notwith-
standing. I will give you a little ex-
perience that will verify that fact.
Years ago when I resigned my posi-
tion of the oldest daily newspa-
per in the State, the old Pitts-
burgh Commercial Gazette, and
accepted a similar position on
the Daily Dispatch, on entering the
office of the Dispatch that good man,
E. M. O’Niell, said to me, “you may
as well share half of my office,” which
I1did and remained there thirty years.
The idea struck me very favorably
since he was the head of the Dispatch
organization. A few weeks later he
requested me to be in the office at 3
p. m. that day. Of course I was feel-
ing rather curious all day. Thought
possibly I might be facing a promo-
tion or a discharge; but neither ma-
terialized. The first thing he said to
me was, “you know I don’t like this
funny section craze; I am thinking of
cutting it out and greatly improving
our local news department. I am tired
of the silly stuff.” I was in the same
boat and agreed with him, thinking
the better class of readers would wel-
come the change. The following Sun-
day there was no comic section in the
Dispatch. After two month’s exper-
ience our Sunday circulation dropped
down just 10,000. We again issued
an improved comic section and in one
month we got back our loss and then
come. This goes to show the influ-
ence of women and the kids.

In city streets, on country highways, in farm struc-

is being more and more used. Why?
First because it meets the modern necessity for
economy. Atlas is cheaper today than thirty years
ago. And second because man’s work must be safe-
Structures built with Atlas protect both the worker
and his product, for they are permanent and fire-
safe. Tell your building material dealer about your

Power of a Thunderstorm.
When a great storm is raging, with
flashes of lightning illuminating the
sky and thunder crashes deafening
our ears, we realize something of the
stupendous power of electricity.
If a cat’s back is rubbed in the dark
during hot, dry weather, sparks will
often fly from it. They are perfectly
harmless, though they are identical
with lightning flashes, and the crack-
ing that accompanies them is thunder
on a small scale. ;
In a thunderstorm the earth repre-
sents your hand and the clouds are
the cat’s back. The pressure that
causes a flash of lightning may be as
much as 1,000,000,000 volts—that is,
5,000,000 times greater than that
which is used for household lighting.
Could we collect and harness the
power set free by a single flash of
lightning, we should have at our dis-
posal a force greater than anything
that can be produced by man.
In a famous scientist’s laboratory
the experiment was tried of produc-
ing a million-volt spark. It leapt a
ten-foot gap with a noise like the ex-
plosion of a bomb and came near to
wrecking the entire building. This is
the highest pressure that has so far
been produced artificially.
Most of the lightning in a thunder-
storm does not come near the earth,
but flashes from cloud to cloud. Occa-
sionally a forked tongue leaps from
cloud to earth, and then anything in
its path is destroyed.

Apples Once Grew Wild.
Apples, as we know them today, in
ancient times grew wild in parts of
Europe and Asia, and their cultivation
began in Europe centuries ago, but it
remained for Americans to make the
greatest progress in this direction.
One of the first of these benefac-
tors was Loammi Baldwin. While
prominent in his capacity as an engi-
neer, he would long since have been
forgotten except for his horticultural
experiments, which resulted in the
production of the famous apple which
bears his name.
The United States now produces the
bulk of the world’s apple crop and
Canada adds to North American su-
premacy. The European belt extends
from Norway to southern France.
The fruit is also cultivated in New
Zealand, Tasmania and other coun-
