Land of the Onion
It is said that when a ship Is ap-
proaching the island of Ceylon deli-
clous perfumes are wafted to the
mariner’s nostrils long before the
shores come into sight, so luxuriant is
the growth of flowers on the islands.
Other travelers assert that a ‘similar
statement is true of the island of Ber-
muda ; but in the modern instance the
fragrance which meets the sailor’s nos-
trils is not that of delicious flowers,
but of the more humble, useful and nv
tritious onion.

lilies for the New York Easter market,
but his mainstay is the onion. The |
Bermuda onion is the best in the world
Nothing so good is raised in the Unit-
cd States. Every year we {import
onions from Cuba and the other West
Indies, and even from so distant a
place as Egypt, but no onion takes the
place of that of Bermuda.
Forgot the Rule
“Grammar is a most confusin’ thing,”
remarked Cassidy to his friend. *I
is I’ or ‘It is me.'”
“I can give you a good rule on that,”
returned his friend. “Just say over
to yourself this rhyme. ‘It is I, said the
spider to the fly’ and there ya are.”
A few days later the friend met Mike
and inquired if the rule had been of
any help.
“It would have been but for wan
thing,” replied Cassidy. “I couldnt
for the loife of me remember whethey
your rhyme was: ‘It is I, said the spi-
der to the fly, or ‘It is me, said the
spider to the flea.’ ”—Boston Tran-
Not So Big
Hall Caine was the guest of honor at
a literary dinner, and it fell to Thomas
Nelson Page to introduce him in what
the reporters are fond of calling “a few
well-chosen sentences.” :
Just before rising to do so, Page
passed his menu card to Caine with a
request that he autograph it.
“After you have spoken,” whispered
Sir Hall.
“No, no—do it now,” said Page,
Caine obeyed, and later he asked his
ntroducer why he had been in so great
a hurry to obtain his signature.
“Well,” said Page, “If you must
know, it was because I wanted to be
able to say truthfully that I had read
something you had written,”
“Knowledge” and “Wisdom”
How it comes to pass 1 know not,
and yet it is certainly so, there is as
much vanity and weakness of Jude-
ment in those who profess the great-
est abilities, who take upon them
learned callings and bookish employ-
ments as in any other sort of men
whatever; either because more is re-
quired and expected from them, and
that common defects are inexcusable
in them, or rather because the opinien
shey have of their own learning makes
them more bold to expose and lay them-
sclves too open, by which they lose
and betray themselves.—Montaigne,

Centre County Jail Condemned by
Welfare Department.
The Centre county jail has been
characterized as almost the worst jail
in the State by Mrs. E. S. H. McCau-
ley, head of the State Welfare De-
partment, in a recent scathing letter
to the County Commissioners, and
copies of which letter were sent to
Judge James C. Furst and sheriff E.
R. Taylor. Mrs. McCauley went
further and ordered that all female
prisoners now confined in the county
jail be transferred to the Allegheny
county workhouse at once, and direct-
ed the court that all women who may
hereafter be convicted of crime be
sentenced to the Allegheny county in-
stitution until such time as the coun-
ty jail shall have been put in condition
to harbor them.
The present quarters for female
prisoners in the jail was the cause of
the most drastic denunciation on the
part of Mrs. McCauley, but she also
condemned the present heating and
lighting systems, lack of proper sani-
tary facilities, the absence of a per-
mant wash tub in the jail for the
prisoners’ use in washing their cloth-
ing, and various other defects.
The present jail was built in 1847
and at that time the builders made no
extra provision for female prisoners,
possibly because they had no women
criminals in those days. In later
years, when it was found necessary to
provide quarters for women two cells
at the western end of the corridor on
the second floor were partitioned off
as a woman’s compartment. Both
wood and an iron door separate the
compartment from the cells of the
men but they are not sound proof and
to gain access to the women’s cells
it is necessary to pass through that
portion of the jail occupied by the
male prisoners. There are only two
cells in the women’s compartment ana
it is only a few weeks ago that four
women were confined therein at ony
Now, however, there is only one fe-
male prisoner, Annie Sokolosky, and
she is such an old-timer that she is
well able to take care of herself at
any place or in any kind of company.
In her letter Mrs. McCauley was
very emphatic in complimenting sher-
iff E. R. Taylor and the members of
his family for their excellent care
and consideration of the prisoners in
their charge during his term of office,
which she characterized as exception-
ally good considering the many de-
fects in the county prison.
The County Commissioners aver that :
they have made about the only tm- |
provements during their term in office
that have been made in years. They
have also under consideration a plan
for creating a woman’s ward out of
one of the large rooms in the sheriffs
residence but it is hardly likely that
anything along this line will be done
right away. The fact that John A.
Way, recently appointed to take the
place of Howard Holtzworth, restgn-
ed, will hold office only until January
2nd, 1928, and that the term of James
W. Swabb will also expire at that
time, will probably deter them from
assuming any responsibility for mak-
ing any changes or improvements ai
the jail; and Mr. Spearly will doubt-
less prefer to wait until an entire
new board is in office before any ae-
tion is taken.
In the meantime, Anne Sockolosky,
the only woman prisoner, is not mak-
ing any fuss about being transported
anywhere else.
——John A. Way, who was sworn
in as County Commissioner Novem-
ber first as an appointee to succeed
Howard E. Holtzworth, resigned, has
been in office less than two weeks but
avers that it has been long enouge
for him to discover that the best kind
of a business man would be none to
good for the office. In fact, he avers
that the salary should be increased
to a figure that would justify business
men in becoming candidates in the fu-
