One of the inestimable benefits of

Some women miss happiness by
reason of conditions which make joy
impossible; but for most women it is
both possible and natural.
M. P. Musser left for Pitcairn, on
Wednesday of last -veek, to visit his
son Abner and family. He will re-

Americans laugh oftener and more
heartily than the people of any other

the fun of other nationalities.
A car load of anthracite coal was
delivered to the consumers at the Gap
the early part of this week. Prices
have slightly declined. However, there
is plenty of room for further decline,
owing to the vast over-production at
the mines.
The High school ball team of Miles-
burg played our High school club on
Friday afternoon, the score being 14

I know a woman in Pleasant Gap
who is devoid of sufficient brains to
know that pockets put in a shroud
would be regarded as a nuisance by
the most intelligent residents of our
good, quiet, orderly community. Be-
ing of a very modest disposition I
will avoid being personal.
It is somewhat annoying when we
are obliged to pay $2.50 or $3.00 for
marketable peaches, when your neigh-

and assures you he paid fifty cents a
bushel. The automobile, on numer-

The trustees of the western peni-
tentiary last week decided to ask for
$1,000,000 for maintenance and $2,-
000,000 for construction work for
Rockview for 1926-27. This is grati-
fying news and will have a tendency
to eliminate the hand-to-mouth way
of procedure as heretofore. Money
judiciously spent on construction work
at Rockview at this time would prove
a blessing.
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Melroy are
enjoying a trip through the New Eng-
land States. They started in at the
“Pool of Nymphs,” Watkins Glen, N.
Y., from which place they proceeded
to Bennington, Vermont. There they
visited the highest battle monument
in the world, over 307 feet in height.
This monument commemorates the de-
cisive victory over the British, Au-
gust 16, 1777. The monument was
erected in 1886-9 at a cost of $115,000,
and is very attractive. From Ben-
nington they will continue an exten-
sive tour, embracing most of the New
England States. Their pilgrimage is
indefinite in character, but will come
to a close before the animated fall
election takes place.
We are about to have another new

! the past season but expect to embark
on a much larger scale beginning near
the close of the year. They now have
a capacity of producing 2400 chicks
weekly but expect to triple their ca-
pacity by December 1st. Their spe-
cialty is to raise pure-bred stock only,
consisting of Barred Rocks, Rhode Is-
land Reds and Tom Barron English

ers will be added. If hard work and
an abundance of ambition count for
anything the success of the new firm

True politeness is one of the best
traits we can possess. It is one of the
noblest characteristics that one can
conscientiously practice, and it is not
born in us, but can be easily acquired.
It goes a long way in smoothing over
the rough edges of life and has been
the means of enabling many a young
man to rise in the world who other-
wise might have remained in the low-
er strata. It is not necessary to fawn
upon the rich and the great and influ-
ential, for a man should at all times
preserve a proud independence; but if
one is considerate of others he will
find, often to his surprise, that these
kindnesses bear unexpected fruit. A
man need not go through the world
shoving all others aside and tramp-
ling the weak under foot; at the same
time he should not permit himself to
be imposed upon. The women, partic-
ularly, to whom the social atmosphere
is life itself, the few bits of caution,
advice, warning and general informa-
tion given will not come amiss, al-
though we do not wish to intimate
that the majority of ladies are unfa-
miliar with the rules and regulations
| of society, for they are not. Ladies
are adepts in ¢onforming to the slight-
est, and, to the average observer, the
most insignificant forms laid down by
the autocrats of society, but it some-
times comes to pass that they need
recourse to the letter of the dictum
and cannot trust to what they think
is the proper thing to be done in the
circumstances and under the condi-
tions then prevailing.

Liquid Light to be Next.
The simple electric light switch by
means of which a room can be flooded
with brilliant light, or even a whole
town illuminated in a moment, was a
tremendous step in advance, but we
are now promised a light which never
goes out. There is nothing to pay, ex-
cept the original cost of buying, say,
half a pint of liquid light.
This liquid light is poured into a
bulb, and the resultant light is said to
be superior to electric or any other
known light, except nature’s own
brand of daylight. This light, being,
in fact, radio-active, will remain good
for seven years or more, when the
bulb may require refilling.
It is claimed, also, that this liquid
will eventually make coal oil power a
thing of the past. If that is the case,
the real abolition of smoke seems to
be in sight, for, although electric as
long as fuel is necessary for its power
is smokeless, there will be smoke gen-

Must Comply with Law in Sale of
Cider Vinegar.
It is not difficult for farmers to com-
ply with the Pennsylvania law regu-
lating the sale of cider vinegar, pro-
viding the vinegar has been made
from apple juice and contains no
added water, drugs or acid.
A farmer is required under the law
to label all containers with his name
and address. This may be done on
any farm with a set stencils, or a
card. When these requirements are
fulfilled, the vinegar may be sold to
the wholesale and retail trade in the
State, without inspection or permit of
any kind.

Is your work wearing you out? Are
you tortured with throbbing backache

Then look to your kidneys! Many oc-

Vested Interests
Certain political orators tell us that the people of the United
States are the prey of men who enjoy special privileges.
They shout loudly about Robber Barons, and Predatory Wealth,
and Vested Interest and Wall Street.
These terms mean nothing without a bill of particulars.
Let us have some names. Who are the offenders ?
Which of the 30,000 independent banks; or the 15,000 great cor-
porations all fiercely competing for business.
Which of the 2500 railroad systems, or the 4000 public utility
companies, or the millions of men engaged in trade and agriculture ?
Which of the labor unions oppress us?
