The importance of good nursing has
never heen properly appreciated,
otherwise more books would have
been written on the subject. Good
nursing is just as important as the
science of medicine. A great many
people are apt to criticise the charges
of a professional nurse, but I don’t
agree with them. The nurse, like the
doctor, is expected to respond to any
and every call, even if it takes her in
contact with loathsome and conta-
gious diseases. Because of this fact,
and also for the reason that she is
compelled to spend several years in
training at nominal wages, she is
worth in the sick room every ¢ent she
demands. Nursing the sick is a try-
ing job and those who do it are
worthy of their hire.

Ten Million Forest Trees to be Ship-
ped This Spring.
Secretary Stuart announced re-
cently that ten million forest trees
will be shipped this spring from the
nurseries operated by the State De-
partment of Forests and Waters.
From the Mont Alto Nursery in
Franklin county there will be ship-
ped 3,700,000 trees. The Clearfield
nursery comes second with 3,500,000
trees, and the Greenwood nursery in
Huntingdon county will contribute 1,-
200,000 trees. In spite of the late
spring, more than 400,000 trees have
been shipped already.
The demand for forest trees has
been so great for this spring that the
entire nursery supply, except a few
short-leaf pine, were allotted months
ago. Several hundred forest land
owners, who were disappointed in not
getting trees this year, have already
filed their applications for trees for
the spring of 1927.
Forest tree planting will be fea-
tured this spring in every county of
the State. The 10,000,000 trees that
will be planted will bring back to
production more than 9,000 acres of
land. In 50 years, when many of
these trees will be large enough to
cut, they will produce more than 300,
000,000 board feet of lumber urgent-
ly needed by the people and industries
of the State.
Road Hogs Not Popular With Aver-
If motorists would learn the rules
of the road, always bearing in mind
to share the road with other users of
the highway and “keeping to the
right,” there would be fewer acci-
dents. Hogging the road is the cause
of many accidents, particularly at
Carelessness is particularly notice-
able at turns. It is no easy matter
to turn corners at speed prescribed
by law, and. novices should practice
traveling at low speed just before
reaching corners and before making
the turn at a speed not more than
four miles an hour. Drivers should
always signal by waving the hand
which way the car is to turn or when
it is to come to a stop. In making a
turn on a country road, where the
motorist cannot see beyond the turn,
unusual precaution should be taken.
Too many motorists make these turns
with their machines far over the mid-
dle of the road, thereby endangering
the other fellow, who frequently is
doing the same thing on the opposite
side of the turn. It is well to re-
member that half of the road is yours
Beware of Fake Seed Salesmen this
This is a timely warning issued by
the Pennsylvania Department of
Agriculture. Reports have been re-
ceived by the Department from other
States in which the so-called Zenith
Lawn Accessory Company, a firm
making a speciality of selling “Her-
bae Prati,” is operating.
A statement has been received
from the United States Department
of Agriculture which reads in part
as follows: “The Post Office De-
partment has denied the company
the use of the mail. Grossly erro-
neous statements as to the suitabil-
ity of ‘Herbae Prati’ for lawns have
been made. Its qualities have been
proclaimed in such phrases as ‘the
boss of all grasses;’ ‘the world’s most
beautiful blue-grass;’ ‘a lawn in 30
days anywhere; ‘it will grow where
other grasses have failed, in any soil
or climate;’ ‘heat, cold or shade will
not affect it.’
“An analysis of the mixture made
by the department seed testing la-
boratory showed it to be composed
mainly of meadow fescue and Ital-
ian rye grass. The victims have paid
as high as $1.50 a pound for the mix-
ture, whereas, according to the de-
partment, the constituents of the
‘Herbae Prati’ mixture could have
been purchased from reputable seed
firms for not more than 18 to 20 cents
“The postal fraud order has put a
stop to the use of mails by the
firm, but traveling agents are still
active throughout the country sell-
ing ‘Herbae Prati’ by house to house
canvas and to local seed handlers.”
While the presence of these travel-
ing agents has not yet been reported
in Pennsylvania, the public should
be constantly on guard, says D. E. M.
Gress, the State’s well-known botan-
ist and seed specialist.

Our Largest State.
Texas, the largest of the United
States, has an area of 262,290 square
miles. To the casual reader these
figures may seem very little. They
show, however, that the Lone Star
State is more than fifty-four times as
large as the State of Connecticut, as
an old Southern statistician tells us.
If it were possible to run a railway
train from Connecticut to Texas and
back in a day and if the train could
take the entire population of the Nut-
meg State, as given in the last cen-
sus, at every trip, and upon its return
to Connecticut there should be as
many persons in the State as there
were before the train left with its
cargo, and if each person were placed
upon an acre of ground upon his ar-
rival in Texas, the train would be
obliged to make 224 trips, or to de-
populate Connecticut 224 times, be-
fore accomplishing its mission, and
then there would remain in Texas
not elbow his way around in the
crowded Southwest without chafing
the nap of his coat sleeves, may gath-
er some solace from the statement
that the entire population of the
globe, divided into families of five
persons each, could be located in Tex-
as, each family with a house on a
half-acre lot, and there would still re-
main many millions of vacant lots.—
Electrified Food to Join Artifical Sun
in New Rickets Cure.
The use of ultra-violet electric rays
upon various foodstuffs may be the
next application of electricity to the
well being and health of mankind,
according to recent experiments cov-
ered in a report of the Scottish Board
of Health, says the Pennsylvania
Duitie Service Information Commit-
Oranges and other fruits have for
years been successfully ripened by
the use of ordinary electric light. The
report of the Board is based upor
further researches along these lines.
It has been found that numerous
foods whose use tends to cause rick-
ets can be made definitely anti-ra-
chitic by the application lamp. Milk
exposed to the artifical sunlight rays
becomes richer in vitamines, and a
substance inherent in many foods,
cholesterol, is made beneficially act-
ive by the electric sunlight.
The essential vitamines in food are
largely destroyed by cooking, accord-
ing to the report, and it seems prob-
able that they can be restored by
this use of electricity.
Ultra-violet rays produced by
quartz lamps are being used to cure
various diseases, notably rickets, and
this application is closely tied in with
the modern problem of smoke abate-
ment, since these same diseases are
both caused and aggravated by a
dearth of sunlight containing the

Get Rid of That Backache!
Bellefonte People Point the Way.
The constant aching of a bad back,
The weariness, the tired feeling;
Headaches, dizziness, nervousness,
Distressing urinary disorders—
Are often signs of failing kidneys
And too serious to be neglected.
Get rid of these troubles!
Use Doan’s Pills—a stimulant di-
uretic to the kidneys.
Hosts of people recommend Doan’s.
This is a Bellefonte case.
You can verify it.
Samuel Weaver, S. Water St., says:
“My kidneys acted irregularly and I
almost got down with backache.
Mornings I felt so lame and stiff, I
could hardly bend to put on my shoes.
After using Doan’s Pills, from Run-
kle’s Drug Store, I was benefited in
every way.” (Statement given April
On July 22, 1925, Mr. Weaver said:
“Time hasn't shaken my faith in
Doan’s Pills. This confirms my state-
ment of 1922.”

The telephone has just passed its fiftieth birthday
This half-century of history has been marked by extraordinary progress.
The service has been extended into a Bell System of close to seventeen
million telephones. Its facility and dependability have reached a height
which to the user seems commonplace by very familiarity.
But a review of these fifty years emphasizes most the necessity for further
progress in pace with the requirements of the future.
In Pennsylvania even the most remote towns have their telephone service,
and thousands of lines radiate off through the back-country, bringing
it into the universal community which this service creates.
But this was so ten years ago; and, yet, since 1916 the number of tele-
phones has almost doubled.
New users and new uses continuously push this growth forward. New
developments of equipment and method make possible a constantly in-
creasing usefulness of the service, despite the magnifying complexity of
the great switching system which is the mainspring of it all.
The “ pioneer” era of telephony was inspired in its overcoming of great
obstacles. But each year calls for new and just as essential pioneering in
the growing intricacies of so complex a service mechanism.
