How to Honor the Stars and Stripes.
Never let the flag touch the ground.
Never leave it up after sunset nor
hoist it before sunrise.
When the flags are massed togeth-
er, the Stars and Stripes should pre-
cede the others or be carried in the
center above them on a higher staff.
The blue union should be at the
left as you face the flag when it is
hung as a banner.
When the flag passes in a parade,
.or is being hoisted or lowered, all men
not in uniform salute it by taking off
the hat and holding it at the left
shoulder. Women salute by placing
the right hand over the heart.
Where displayed with another flag,
the National Flag should be placed to
the right of the other.
On shore the flag should never be
dipped by way of salute or compli-
ment to any one or anything.
The Church Pennant is the only
flag ever flown from the same staff
or above the United States Flag, and
then only in the Navy during divine
The flag of the United States may
be flown from your house on all pa-
triotic occasions, but especially on the
following days:
Washington’s Birthday, Lincoln’s
Birthday, Mothers’ Day, Memori-
al Day, Flag Day (June 14th),
The Fourth of July, Labor Day,
Armistice Day.
Never fly the flag upside down
(with the union reversed) except in
case of dire distress at sea. In this
case it must be answered immediate-
Y Aimonitier that the flag represents
a living country and should be treated
‘as if it were a living thing.—From
Everybody’s Magazine for July.
France Will Not Trade Colonies For
War Debts.
France will not put her colonial
possessions on the bargain counter.
That is the government’s reply to a
certain faction of French members
of Parliament who, despite the Mellon-
Berenger debt agreement, still urge
an attempt to trade off to the United
States certain French colonies in set-
tlement of the war debt.
France cannot forget how America,
with the knack of a shrewd Yankee
‘trader, struck a bargain with Napol-
eon and bought Louisiana and the
State to the north for 80,000,000
francs. France has sold only that one
colony, but the lesson cost her dear.
A certain group’in Parliament would
send an offer to Washington to trade
Martinique, one of the windward is-
"lands in the West Indies, the barren
and rocky islands of St. Pierre and
Miquelon, inhabited by fishermen and
rum runners off the southwestern
coast of Newfoundland, and Guade-
loupe, another West Indian Island
possession which now does a three
million dollar business annually with
the American mainland. All they
would ask in return is that the $4,-
000,000,000 war debt be stricken off
the books.
The minister of colonies, to whom
the proposition was submitted, was
prompt in his protest to M. Ariand.
“We have nothing to sell,” the pre-
mier replied, emphatieally.
—Begin this month ‘to dispose of
birds that quit laying, since in most
cases they will not come back into
profitable production ‘before next
January or February. In most flocks
" birds that cease laying before Septem-
ber should be culled.
—It’s fine for a young boy to have
good table manners, but all the same
it makes everybody suspicious that
he isn’t going to amount to much.
Some of the summer dresses
look like their wearers had been rol-
“ling in ‘children’s assorted toy pdints.

i To School Directors of Centre County.
Sanitary cleaning of the school
property should be done soon. Owing
to the unusual prevalence of com-
municable diseases in this country
during the latter part of the school
year and to prevent future outbreaks,
all school directors are directed and
requested to have wiped down all
wood-work, benches, chairs, desks, ex-
posed floor surface and door knobs in
each classroom of their schools with
some good disinfecting solution, us-
ing it freely. Work the solution into
all cracks and corners: Allow it to
remain in contact with floor and wood-
work, ete., for at least an hour. Then
thoroughly scrub woodwork, etc., with
soap and hot water. No dry sweep-
ing or dusting. Let in sunshine and
air by opening shutters and sashes
and raising blinds. If it can be man-
aged the room should be entirely ren-
ovated—that is, painted. This can be
done when the schools are usually
cleaned before their cpening in Sep-
tember. The sooner the better.
The law requires privy vaults to be
cleaned and disinfected prior to the
opening of each school term and
oftener if necessary. The excreta
when removed shall be promptly
buried or properly distributed on the
farm and immediately plowed under
the soil:
A survey of several schools reveal-
ed violations of the Health Regula-
tions and Laws, and it is hoped that
same will be taken care of at once,
and without a legal notice being ser-
ved and the record of the School Dis-
trict marred. The following govern
all outside privies as well as school
privies: Article 11, Section 1, No
privy, cesspool or other receptacle
for human excrement shall be con-
structed, maintained or Used So That
Flies Have Or May Have Access To
The Excrementious Matter Contained
Section 2. No privy, urinal, cess-
pool or other receptacle for human
excrement shall be constructed, main-
tained or used which Directly or In
directly Drains or Discharges over or
Upon The Surface of the Ground or
into any waters of the State.
Section 3. All privies, urinals, cess-
pools or other receptacles for human
excrement shall be cleaned at suffi-
ciently frequent intervals to prevent
the contents from overflowing.
Article 4. Section 1. No person shall
maintain or permit to be maintained
any pond, privy vault, cesspool, well
cistern, rain barrel, or other recepta-
cle containing water in such a condi-
tion that mosquitos breeding therein
may become a public nuisance.
Now is the time to fix them before
the School term begins and an abate-
ment notice is served, as a visit to
every school in the county is contem-
plated when a sanitary survey will be
made, which also includes the water
supply and inside of the school room.
A chart of Communicable Diseases
requiring exclusion from school will
be left at each class room visited to-
gether with other literature along the
lines of Sanitation and Hygiene, and
copy of laws pertaining to the school
teacher’s duties along this line.
Articule 6. Water Supply- Section 1.
No owner or occupant of any prem-
ises shall maintain any well, spring,
cistern or other source of water sup-
ply used for drinking or household
purposes to which the public has or
may have access and which is pollut-
ed or which is so situated or con-
structed that it may become polluted
in any manner that may render such
water supply injurious to health
Act of April 27, 1905. “Penalty,”
Section 16. Every person who violat-
ed any order or regulation of the De-
partment of Health, or who resists or
interferes with any officer or agent
thereof in the performance of his
duties in accordance with the regula-
tions and orders of the Department

a misdemeanor, and shall, upon con-
viction therof, be punished by a fine
of not more than one hundred dollars,
or by imprisonment not exceeding one
month, or both, at the discretion of
the court. ;
Copies of the pamphlets “The Sani-
tary School Toilet,” “Wells, Springs
and Cisterns” and any other issued
by the Department of Health, will be
sent free to any person dosiring same
by the County Health Officer or direct
from the Central office, Harrisburg,
Pa. Any person in this county or any
School District’s Property should be
made to comply with the above regu-
lations, and there is no excuse for
anyone if their toilets and water sup-
plies do not comply with the State
Law and are condemmed or what not.

Crawford County Murderer Electro-
John Musztuck, of Crawford county,
was electrocuted at Rockview peni-
tentiary, Monday, July 12th, for the
murder of his wife, Josie Musztuck,
on November 17th, 1925. Musztuck
was brought to the death house by
automobile on Saturday and had very
little to say from the time of his ar-
rival until his electrocution, going to
the chair without making any state-
ment. He was attended by Rev.
Father B. A. O’Hanlon, of State Col-
lege, and four minutes after the one
contact he was pronounced dead by
Dr. C. J. Newcomb. The body was
unclaimed and was buried in the peni-
tentiary cemetery.
Musztuck was 31 years old and his
wife 47, and this disparity in their
ages resulted in frequent quarrels.
On the night of November 17 Musz-
tuck beat and choked his wife to death
and after keeping the body in the
house all the following day dug a
grave in the chicken house and
buried it there. Neighbors missed the
woman and Musztuck failing to ex-
plain her absence the authorities
began a search which resulted in find-
ing the body buried in the hen house.
Musztuck narrowly escaped being
lynched the day of his arrest. He
was tried in February last and con-
f vieted.

Feeding Our Army in France.
While I was in France I spent three
months in training areas, nine months
at the front (almost continuously)
and, after the war was over, four
months in Germany as a member of
the Army of Occupation. During all
this year and a half the only times
that we failed to get three square
meals a day was when either battle,
or weather conditions prevented food
from reaching us. I forgot to state
that I also spent a month away from
the front in September and October
of 1918, part of the time in Base Hos-
pital 43 at Blois, France, and the rest
of the month at the replacement camp
in Le Mans and on trains going to and
from the front. The food in the S.
0. S. was a better quality and more
plentiful than that at the front so the
statement of your correspondent in
the issue quoted can not be true.
There were times at the front when
for two or three days at a stretch we
received ro food at all from the eche-
lon, but neither could we be communi-
cate with them except by sending run-
ners through when it was absolutely
necessary. On the march into Ger-
many the problem of food was again
a serious one, and for two whole
weeks we had for breakfast every day
four hard tacks, a spoonful of dried
corned beef and a cup of very weak
coffee with no sugar. For lunch we
had nothing, and for supper, after a
thirty or thirty-five kilometer hike we
had four more hardtacks, a spoonful
of boiled beans and some more of the
alleged coffee.
ET eh ows (et

My outfit arrived in France the
thirteenth of November, 1917, and at
that time there were not over 250,000
American soldiers in France. The
supply problem was accordingly not
so great, and for Thanksgiving Day,
Christmas and George Washington’s
Birthday we had the regulation dinner
of turkey, et cetera. Of course in
1918, when there were more than two
million men overseas, the issuance of
this regulation holiday ration was im-
And the final proof positive of my
statements is that every man of nor-
mal health gained weight while in the
service! When I was discharged in
1919 I weighed one hundred fifty-two
pounds, and now, being able to choose
my own food and eat as much as I
please, I weigh only one hundred
pounds. Of course I don’t know
whether this is applicable to the en-
tire A. E. F. or not, but I do know
that it is true of every one to whom
I have spoken on the subject.
I'll admit that the battle ery of the
American Army in France was,
