Bellefonte, Pa., May 29, 1925.
Harrisburg—Governor Pinchot re-
luctantly signed the Nicholson House
bill changing bag limits and open sea-
sons, because of a proviso that game
wardens could not make arrests or be
called upon to make arrests for other
violations than game law violations.
The Governor says he signed the bill
because the other provisions were
good and because Attorney General
Woodruff informed him that the sec-
tion restricting the police powers of
game wardens was unconstitutional.

Effect of Good Cheer in Sick Room.
The restorative power of good cheer
is far greater than medicine, and men-
tal depression is the true physicians
worst enemy. It is the bane of a sick-
room and the shackle upon recovery.
In fact, the mental attitude is respon-
sible for more ills than all other caus-
es put together.
If a nurse cannot control her feel-
ings, or the exterior manifestations of
them, her usefulness is turned into
uselessness, and anything useless in a
sick-room is positively harmful.
The jest has an important part to
play in the sick-room as a remedy for
irritability. Don’t tell long stories,
don’t talk about some other person’s
trials, and don’t think up miserable
possibilities. The keynote to success-
ful nursing is order, observation and
obedience, these qualities joined with
tact—the want of which is the bace of |
nearly every sin which a nurse may |
commit—make for the ideal sick-room |
An English tourist, who was
telling an Irish peasant about the im-
mense size of the British Empire said:
Well, Pat, and do you know that the
sun never sets on the King’s domin-
No, your honor, replied Pat.
Well, such is the case, went on the
tourist. But do you know the reason
why ?
Pat immediately answered: 1 sup-
pose it is because Heaven is afraid to
trust an Englishman in the dark.
Three hundred years ago next
month a Dutchman escaped from life
imprisonment under the Prince of
Nassau, and completed the writing of
one of the world’s landmark books.
The Dutchman was Hugo Grotius; his
book, of course, “De Jure Belli et Pa-
cis.” With its publication modern in-
ternational law may be said to have
come definitely into being. Certainly
there has not been a major inter-
national embroilment since 1625 in
which the maxims of Grotius have not
been quoted. And while there may be
points in his argument which are pat-
ently out of date, statesmen are still
applying themselves to his rules for
neutrality and contraband, and still go
back to his exposition of sovereignty
for many of their controlling ideas.
Grotius’ book has had an astonishing
influence and an even more astonish-
ing life. It is the latter fact which is
likely to impress the participant in the
approaching tercentenary, to be cele-
brated simultaneously in the Hague
and in Paris. That book laying down
rules for the conduct of warfare
should remain authoritative while the
warfare itself evolved from harque-
buses to aeroplanes and from cara-
vels to super-submarines is in itself a
commentary on the slowness with
which humanity moves forward. It
seems probable, however, that the
reign of Grotius is about over. As the
father of an international law the
great Dutchman—who also showed his
greatness in his efforts for religious
tolerance—will remain in the gallery
of the world’s pioneers. But long be-
fore another centenary rolls round
there will be a new and authoritive
codification of international law, from
which it is to be hoped that all laws
giving legal standing to war are left
out. Indeed, it is possible that the
writing of this code, long overdue,
may be the substantial recognition of
the worth of the document that Gro-
tius gave to the world three hundred
years ago.—The Christian Century.
Toxin is Discovered for Scarlet Fever.
The current Journal of the Ameri-
can Medical Association, in an article
by Drs. George A. Dick and Gladys
Henry Dick, of Chicago, says evidence
has been fond that immunity from
scarlet fever may be developed by the
use of a toxine. The immunity will
last a year and a half, the article says.
The Doctors Dick, who have been
working for years to develop a serum
to combat scarlet fever and who have
been recommended for the Noble prize
for their work, some time ago an-
nounced that scarlet fever germs can
be isolated, that the fever can be ex-
perimentally produced and that the
toxin can be used in testing suscepti-
bility to the fever.
Senate bill No. 15 approved March
26 by Governor Pinchot carries the
following provisions re'ative to the
serving of milk for drinking purposes
in hotels, restaurants, lunch rooms and
dining cars:
1. Milk for drinking purposes
must be served in the bottle in which
it is supplied to the eating place, it
being unlawful to serve milk to pa-
trons from a bulk supply.
2. The milk served must comply
with the standards fixed by the laws
of the Commonwealth.
3. The law does not prohibit the
purchase of milk in bulk for uses oth-
er than for serving patrons for drink-

HE system of this company has grown from two tele-
L phones to nearly a million in Pennsylvania in less than
fifty years. :
Such growth of a necessary service, constantly increasing
in scope and efficiency, is not surprising. But there's an ele-
ment in it that is.
The single telephone is not a self-sufficient unit. It must
be tied to every other one in the community, and beyond.
A growth of a hundred telephones, or a thousand, means
a disproportionate growth in many elements of the tele-
phone plant, and similarly in the volume and complexity of
the interconnecting equipment and operation.
It has more than once been said that the successful con-
duct of a telephone business can be continued “only so long
i as two plus two can be made to equal something less than
And it is a fact that the otherwise natural consequences
of this great growth would long ago have swamped the serv-
ice, placing it far beyond the average reach; had it not been
for constant economy coming from invention, development,
increased efficiencies and capacities, effective short-cuts—
altogether, the scientific improvement of the telephone
equipment and its operation in the direction of economy.
Complexity is a constant lash in the furnishing of tele
phone service—but to good purpose.
