Bellefonte, Pa., April 3, 1925.
Mrs. Jacob Corman, of Lock Haven,
is visiting her father.
Harry Armstrong and family spent
the week-end in Yeagerstown.
The beauty of a religious life is one
of its greatest recommendations.
Mr. Crumlish’s father, of Pitts-
‘burgh, is here visiting the Crumlish
Mary Noll visited over the week-end
in Altoona, at the home of Fred
Harry McClincy spent last week in
Altoona, circulating among his num-
erous friends there. :
M. M. Keller and wife spent Sunday
at Williamsport, visiting their daugh-
ter and other friends.
Pleasure is only momentary; we
judge of it by its intensity. Its dura-
tion establishes happiness. :
Robert Corl and family and Mrs.
Frank Millward attended the funeral
of John Reed at Pine Grove Mills.
Mrs. John Noll entertained a num-
ber of friends a few evenings ago in
honor of their 20th wedding anniver-
The Loyal workers of the Lutheran
church were entertained last Thurs-
day afternoon at the home of Mrs.
John Herman, of Philadelphia,
dropped in on Sunday to see his
mother and numerous other friends
in this community. John is always a
welcome visitor at the Gap.
Cultivate and exhibit, with the
greatest care and constancy, cheer-
fulness and good humor; they give
beauty to the finest face, and impart
charms were charms are not.
The ¢onsciousness of Divine ap-
probation and support, and a steady
hope of future happiness, imparts
peace and joy, to which all delights of
the world bear no resemblance.
Mrs. R. 3. Sterrett and baby daugh-
ter, of Lock Haven, visited here last
week. A good part of their sojourn
was made at the home of grandpa
John Mulfinger, who as an entertainer
‘has few equals.
The time has arrived when the peo-
ple of this country begin to read and
think for themselves, to learn things
and not words, to exercise their
judgment in matters which concern
their welfare and that of their fami-
lies, instead of paying other people
to think for them.
Thomas Packer, after thirteen
years service at Whiterock, resigned
‘his position and moved to Houserville
on Tuesday last, where he has rented
a two horse farm. He will in the
future be known as farmer Tom Pack-
er. The farm in question is owned
by the United Brethren church,
‘Thomas is an unusually industrious |
man, so much so that all who know
him are satisfied that the Brethren
made no mistake. We predict success
A reception was tendered Rev.
Rishell on Tuesday evening in the M.
E. church, which was largely attend-
©d. The congregation showed their
appreciation of their studious ener-
getic minister. Rev. Rishell was re-
turned for another term, hence his
devoted followers are happy. It would
be difficult to find a pastor who could
fill the place had he been sent else-
where. He seems to have the affec-
tionate esteem of his congregation.
As a manly, heroic, hearty advocate
of physical, moral and religious cul-
ture, Rev. Rishell deserves generous
and grateful recognition.
Josiah Zeigler, who died on Satur-
day night at the Centre County hos-
pital, lived at Pleasant Gap for a
number of years. He had many
friends here and no known enemies.
He was a consistant member of the
M. E. church during his sojourn here.
It was a source of gratification to the
writer, as it must be to the reader,
to know that Josiah always sided with
the oppressed, and stood on the weak-
er side, that being nearest to God and
humanity. He was a faithful and
concientious worker whenever duty
called him to his labors. Josiah has
left us and many of his friends and
admirers will sorely miss him. But
such is life.
The outstanding feature in agricul-
ture this year has been the timely ar-
rival of relief where it was most
needed, Continued increase in grain
prices is the feature of the price sit-
uation. It is a pleasure and satisfac-
tion to know that the farmer is again
in a position to enjoy a good living,
since the gradual increase in their
various products justifies that fact.
The farmer and his family should live
as well as a family in similar cir-
cumstances in a town or city. The
manager of a city business expects
to provide his living from his salary.
Farmers receive no salary, and the
members of the farm family contri-
bute much labor for which they re-
ceive no wages. This unpaid labor,
together with the responsibilities of
management, are only fairly compen-
sated by a good living. In addition
to this good living, farmers are entit-
led to ten per cent on their invest-
ment. Five per cent of this is for
interest on capital, which it would
earn in safe securities, with no busi-
ness to worry about. But in order
that farmers in debt may have a
chance to pay out, and in order that
renters may eventually get farms of
their own, there must be a profit over
the above interest. This profit must
at least be ten per cent. Prospects
There are still a few cranks who
are continually kicking because they
think that our school teachers are
being overpaid for services rendered.
‘They are evidently not cognizant of
the fact that “Intelligence is the life
of Liberty.” The capable teacher is
a blessing to the young and rising
generation of humanity. It is true
that the teachers’ salaries have been
advanced somewhat the past three or
four years. However, the salaries of
country school teachers in most States
are yet too low to demand efficiency,
or to obtain it. An investigation some
ten years ago showed that the aver-
age man teaching in country schools
received.a salary of less than $390 a
year, while the average women re-
ceived $336 a year. At that time city
teachers received twice as much as
country teachers. In the Southern
States there are hundreds of country
teachers who receive less than $200 a
year. The amount received in many
cases is less than living wage.
Teachérs’ salaries oz the whole are
less than the wages of day laborers.
Teachers cannot afford to spend
money in special preparation when
they receive such low wages. The
faithful teacher leaves to his country
the sweet fragrance of a name which
will be ever honored as amongst the
noblest of the age in which he lived,
and bequeaths to the world a glori-
ous example of self culture, which
will be potential for good through all
time. It is the old story retold of
making bricks without straw.

John Burd, eldest son of Mr. and
Mrs. Sumner Burd, after having spent
the winter in Florida, has returned to

beautiful climate are fine, but not-
withstanding all these advantages, he
says the north is good enough to suit
Rev. A. J. Irey, D. D., and Rev. F.
H. Daubenspeck are conducting a ser-
ies of services in the village. The first
service was held March 29th, in the
Reformed church, at which time Rev.
Daubenspeck delivered the sermon,
which was strong and forceful. Mon-
day evening Rev. Irey and the Rev.
Daubenspeck were both present, Rev.
Irey delivering the sermon, which was
wonderfully uplifting. All during the
week, from March 29th to April 3rd,
the services will be held in the Re-
formed church. Beginning April 5th,
the services will be held in the Luth-
eran church, conducted by Rev. Irey.

attended. May the good work contin-
ue and thereby much good be done for
the cause of God in the community.

Powley; secretary, R. E. Rossman.
Our mutual friend, William G.
Ghaner, is now the only remaining
resident of Scotia, that one time
bustling village in the Barrens, back
of Stormstown. When the Carnegie
Steel company opened the ore mines
there forty years ago they naturally
built a town to house their workmen
and for a number of years it was a
thriving place. But with the petering
out of the ore mines, and later the
sand banks that had been opened in
that vicinity there was nothing there
for workmen to do and one by one the
families drifted away until Mr. Ghan-
er is the sole resident. The fact that
he is the owner of approximately 900
acres of land, which includes four
farms, is probably the real reason for
him staying on the ground.
