The sudden death of Lunger Wian
has cast a gloom over Pleasant Gap,
as he had many warm and admiring
friends in this locality. In fact, the
vicinity of the Gap is where he spent
his boyhood days; hence the shock of
his untimely death to many of us was
very distressing. When the good, and
those in whom the heart has rested !
with idolized fondness die the mem-
ory of their good deeds like the moon-
beams on the stormy sea, lights up
our darkened hearts and lends to the
surrounding gloom a beauty so sad,
so sweet, that we would not, if we
could, dispel the darkness that envi-
rons them, The dismal grave; from
its peaceful bosom springs none but
fond regrets and kindly recollections.
What a place for meditation, when we !
look upon the grave of those we loved.
The sorrow for the dead is the only
sorrow from which we refuse to be
divorced. Lunger was an honest, up-
right, bigrhearted, beloved man. That
is why so many mourn his sudden de-
parture from among us.
While the living conqueror turns
miserably from his conquest, because
he finds not that for which he toiled,
how many look for happiness in
wealth, and when it is obtained the
golden vision of their hopes passes
like a sunbeam; gray hairs and the
winter of old age steals upon them,
and they look with sorrowing heart, !
because they feel that death will soon !
break the chain which binds them to !
life. Many think that nothing will do
for them or their children, but weatlh, |
not the hope of heaven, nothing but '
wealth. It is their god and the god |
of their families. Their sons are
growing up to worship it, and an
equally baneful reliance upon it for
the future; they are rushing into ex-
penses which the divided property of
their father’s house will not enable
them to sustain. It is written that
“they that will be rich fall into temp-
tation and a snare and into many fool-
ish and hurtful lusts which drown men
in destruction and perdition.” Disap-
point a man of wealth and he mourns
as if the highest ends of life were de-
feated. He would rather die than

Withering Comment on
Result of World War
The Recorder sat In a tower on the
wall of the Eternal city and thumbed
an ancient book. The book contained
the record of man’s achievements,
The entries were surprisingly few.
On the first yellow page were two
words: “Fire discovered.” The sec-
ond entry, obviously made many cen-
turies later, was equally terse: “The
wheel discovered.” It was evident
that the Recorder took no notice of
trifies and made entries only on those
rare occasions when men took a step
There was a brief note concerning
the beginning of organized govern-
ment, when men sacrificed personal
liberty to win safety, and another to
mark the beginning of democracy.

The Recorder thumbed the pages
of his book and yawned. And even
as he yawned there was a great stir
on the earth below and a war was in
Nations girded themselves for the
conflict and young men marched In
countless millions, Guns bellowed,
gases crept along the ground, mighty
ships were shattered. Orators de-
i nounced the evil that had been: let
loose In the world; idealists pictured
a world free from human nature; val-
fent men died without whimpering be-
cause their cause seemed just. Citles
were destroyed; children starved;
fields lay idle.
And when the orgy of killing was
over, men gathered up the shattered
remains of the civilization they had
been so long in building, taxed them-
selves to pay for their follies and
wrote their memoirs.
The world was dotted with new
graves; new prejudices formed. The
maimed hobbled en every street.
The Recorder, leaning on a window
sill, had watched the commotion with
some show of eagerness. Apparently
he had hopes.
But when the world had returned
to its accustomed way he yawned and
closed his book.
A messenger appeared at the door
with a question. ‘

bration already had been held, so the

ous Institution, which is both a col-

Modern investigation has revealed a
remarkable eontinuity in the history
of English ecclesiastical foundations.
The Saxons built their churches on the
ruins of the great Roman temples, and
the Normans in their turn rebuilt the
Saxon churches. :
This continuity is most remarkable
in Oxford, where nearly every college
has grown out of a medieval monas-

two older monastic colleges, its bells

forty monastic foundations.
Centenary of Match
. The match recently had its one
hundredth birthday, having been in-
troduced in 1825 by John Walker, an
Englishinan, who conceived the idea
of selling his matches in boxes at 1
shilling 4 pence a box.
The safety match, called “Swedish,”
did not appear until the year 1892.
This was the first match which could
be lit only when struck on the box.
The idea of the match, however,
antedated Walker by nearly two cen-
turies. As early as 1680 Godfrey
Hawkwitz was using phosphorus to
ignite little wooden sticks, dipped in
sulphur, Various experiments were
made by other scientists of the day,
but it was nof until 1825 that the
match emerged from the laboratory
and was placed on the market,
Rolla Fallon, employed at the Glenn
Ayr mine, near Terre Haute, Ind., was
digging coal with a pick 200 feet below
the surface and more than a quarter
of a mile back In the mine, late In
March, when he struck a substance
that was firmly embedded in the coal,
He picked at it until a piece, more
than one foot long fell out, disclosing |
a well-developed tree trunk with limb
formations still Intact. The whole
tree appears to be in the coal. He took
the wood to Terre Haute and will
send it to the state museum at In-
dlanapolls for further sclentific re-
search. The wood oozes water and is
spongy instead of petrified, as would
be supposed. The find is sttrdéting
considerable attention from miners.
: to forest fires traceable to hunters.
Hunters, Save the Woods.
With the hunting season approach-
ing, the Forest Service, United States
Department of Agriculture, issued an
appeal to all sportsmen to guard
against forest fires.
rdinarily, say forest officials, a
great number of devastating forest
fires are caused each fall by hunters.
These fires not only destroy valuable
timber but also the better forms of
game animals, and thereby defeat the
plans of the hunters themselves.
Those whose duty it is to guard for-
est lands from fire are usually appre-
hensive of the fall hunting season.
From bitter experience these men
have learned that hunters are fre-
quently careless with matches, smok-
ing tobacco, and camp fires. A great
many sportsmen’s associations have
for years taken measures to prevent
this carelessness by their members.
Other clubs and organizations are fol-
In fact, the time is rapidly ap-
proaching when hunters everywhere
will seek the woods with full knowl-
edge of forest fire conditions, and
these hunters will be of invaluable as-
sistance in protecting the country’s
forests rather than being the agencies
through which so many fires are
The federal government employs its
rangers, guards and lookouts to pro-
tect the national forests. Mot States
likewise have fire wardens and rang-
ers with police powers. Hunters
should take warning and be the first
to protect the woods. They should

Stop that Backache
Many Bellefonte Folks Have Found
Isa dull, nerve-racking backache
wearing you out? Do you feel older
and slower than you should? Are you
tired, weak and nervous; find it im-
possible to be happy, or enjoy the
good times around you? Then there's
something wrong and likely it’s your
kidneys. Why not get at the cause?
Use Doan’s Pills—a stimulant diuret-
ic to the kidneys. Your neighbors rec-
ommend Doan’s. Read what this
Bellefonte resident says:
Clark Carson, taxi owner, 355 E.
Bishop St., says: “A steady misery
across my kidneys took away my com-
fort. The ache in the small of my
back was worse at night and I
couldn’t enjoy much rest. I had to
get up many times to pass the secre-
tions because my kidneys were weak.
I was more tired mornings than when
I went to bed and I felt out of sorts
all the time. After using two boxes
of Doan’s Pills from Runkle’s drug
store, I was cured of the attack.”
