Route of the Franklin Highway.
The Benjamin Franklin Highway is
made by linking together the State
Highways that have already been es-
tablished in the several States; thus
forming a great transcontinental high-
way which will relieve the other high-
ways that have been established of
their congestion enabling the travel-
ing public, whether commercial or
tourist, to travel with ease and com-
fort, as the Benjamin Franklin High-
way avoids the congestion of the f
lareg cities, and follows the water
grade, especially avoiding the moun-
tain hindrances in the east, by cross-
ing the Allegheny mountains at Sum-
mit, Pa.; and with a steady grade up
and down, and without its dangerous
curves. The numbers now are as fol-
No. 1. from Atlantic City across the
State of New Jersey to Philadelphia;
No. 13 from Philadelphia to Harris-
burg, Pa.; No. 3 from Harrisburg to
Ebensburg, Pa.; No. 33 from Ebens-
burg through Indiana, Kittanning, and
Butler to Newcastle, Pa.; west from
Newcastle through to the State line of
Ohio, where you take Ohio’s No. 17 to
Tiffin, Ohio; from Tiffin to Findlay,
Ohio, No. 106; from Findlay to Otta-
wa, Ohio, No. 22; from Ottawa
through Van Wert to the State line of
Indiana No. 109.
The State Highway Commission of
Ohio, has given this route its entire
distance through Ohio the Ohio State
Route No. 17, but the changes will not
be made in the numbers on the high-
ways until next year.
At the State line of Indiana you
take an unnumbered highway through
Decatur to Huntington. It is marked
on the telephone poles MCH. This
strip of road has not been numbered
on the State Highway System of In-
diana, but it is understood that it will
be soon put on that system.
From Huntington you take No. 7
through Wabash, Peru, Logansport,
Monticello and Kentland to the State
line of Illinois. Here you take Illinois
State route No. 8 through Wetseka,
Gilman, Fairbury, Gridley, El Paso,
Washington, : Peoria, Elmwood and
Gibson to Burlington, Iowa; there you
take No. 8 across that State to Oma-
ha, Nebraska, where you meet a U. S.
numbered highway known as No. 30
to Salt Lake City, and from there you
take U. S. numbered highway known
as No. 40 to San Francisco.
This road as outlined above is a
Federal Aid road its entire distance
except a few miles between Van Wert
and Ottawa, Ohio, and the few miles
between Findlay and Tiffin, Ohio, and
a short distance in Indiana County,
Pa. Ttis the hope that this will be put
on the Federal Aid system so that its
entire distance will be aided in con-
struction by the Federal Government.

PILGRIMS DID NOT _LIKE_THE
TT PURKEY. CE
In spite of the statements of popu-
lar historians roasted turkey with
giblet gravy and with cranberry or
apple sauce was a very popular Sun-
day and holiday dish in many places
many years before turkey ‘became
standardized as the central dish of the
Thanksgiving day dinner in Plymouth
colony and among the Puritans and
their descendants settled along Boston
bay and the north shore of Massa-
The story that turkey was the main-
stay of the Thanksgiving day dinner
of the early colonists of New England
seems to have come from the pen of a
visiting Englishman at Plymouth, who
described his travels in a book pub-
lished in London just after the great
He also told the absurd story of the
starving condition of the pilgrims and
of their being reduced at one time to
a dinner of three grains of corn. The
fact was that none of the early or late
colonists could have starved at Plym-
outh or elsewhere along the north or
the south shore, as the sea teemed
with fish and shelfish and the woods
were alive with game. As late as thir-
ty years ago Brant Rock and Marsh-
field, near Plymouth, Mass., were re-
sorted to by hundreds of hunters of
wild birds, and to this hour deer and
wild bird shooting is good in Plymouth
What the pilgrims and the Puritans
craved in the early years of their
settlements were roast beef and mut-
ton, pork, wheaten, oaten and barley
bread, venison pasties made from the
red deer stock, native to England;
jams and jellies from English fruits
preserved with brown sugar from the
orient and English mead, ales and
Holland spirits. Most of them disliked
Indian corn in all forms of products
for human consumption, and they dis-
liked oysters, clams, lobsters, mussels,
scallops, turkeys and native venison.
It was only when marriages of the
early English settlers and their de-
scendants in New England with In-
dians brought about many persons of
mixed blood that the English preju-
dices against certain native American
food products passed away. To this
day English travelers find some of our
foods which we consider delicious
strange to their palates. Matthew Ar-
nold, traveling in America, was asked
to taste griddlecakes. “Try them, my
dear,” he said to his wife; “they're
not nearly so nasty as they look!”
As lately as fifty years ago many
families in New England of undoubted
descent from the pilgrims and Puri-
tans regarded roasted or baked turkey
as an Indian dish and would have
none of it at any time, preferring for
Thanksgiving day dinner roast beef,
a saddle of mutton, pork spareribs,
roast goose with apple sauce or farm
raised ducks with barberry sauce. The
wild turkey was saved from extinction
in New England only because the
farmers noticed that those birds and
the partridges served well in ridding
the farm lands of insects and weeds.

Late spring frosts, a snow storm in

Caused From Bladder Irritation is Nature's
Signal of “Danger Ahead.”
Joseph Dow, R. 55, Trenton, N. J. says:
“My rest at night was disturbed 10 to 20
times. Lithiated Buchu has reduced this
and entirely relieved me of that terrible
burning and smarting. I was told there
was no help for me. I want others to
know and will tell or write my experience.”
Lithiated Buchu is not a patent medi-
cine. The formula is on the package. It
acts on the bladder as epson salts do on
the bowels. Drives out abnormal deposits,
lessens excessive acids, thereby relieving
the irritation which causes ‘disturbed
sleep.” Keller Laboratory, Mechanicsburg,

One day we might forget our cares,
The selfish needs that fill our prayers,
And turn our pleading into praise,
Acknowledging God’s gracious ways.
We have had home and daily bread,
And thank Thee for full tables spread.
If death has claimed our very best,
We thank Thee for a loved one’s rest;
And praise that Providence can bring
Sweet water from each bitter spring.
For things.we have not understood
We thank Thee, Giver of all good.
For leading nations through their strife
Into a larger, better life
‘We thank Thee, knowing war will cease
Before the coming Prince of peace;
And for the care that broods above
Each soul we thank Thee, God of love.

Twenty-Three Accidents Every Min-
ute in the Day.
One person in every nine in the
United States meets with an accident
every year, and one out of every ten
deaths is chargeable to accidental
causes, according to a newly complet-
ed survey just made public. The sur-
vey figures show that there are up-
wards of 12,000,000 accidents every
year in this country, 23 every minute
and 1,380 every hour.
Annually more than 100,000 persons
lose arms, feet or hands as the result of
accidents. In New York City alone
there are some 36,000 cripples—half
of them under sixteen years of age.
The annual economic loss to the
United States is estimated at more
than five billions of dollars.
