    Bellefonte, Pa., May 4, 1928.
We owe the Indians far more than
they are indebted to us for many of
the questionable blessings of civiliza-
tion that we have foisted upon them.
The value of the most important food
products which we derived from the
red men—corn, potatoes, beans, pump-
kins, tomatoes, chocolate and a host
of others, all of which were cultivated
in America centuries before the good
‘Queen Isabella sold her jewels to help
Columbus—aggregates untold scores
of millions of dollars annually, and if
we add to this the world’s tobacco
crop, our pecuniary indebtedness to
the Indians is increased almost be-
yond measure.
Another food, as well as confection,
for which we usually do not give the
Indians credit, is maple sugar, which,
like the others we have mentioned,
was not known to the old world be-
fore the French observed the Indians
extracting the sap from the trees and
subjecting it to the boiling process.
Joutel, in 1684, was probably the
first to mention this primitive indus-
try, but he was followed very close-
ly by an English writer in the “Trans-
actions of the Royal Society” for 1634
-85, who presented “An Account of a
Sort of Sugar made of the Juice of
the Maple in Canada,” in which he
stated that “the savages have prac-
tised this art longer than any now
living can remember.”
Lafitau, however, who made his ob-
servations in lower Canada in 1700-
05, was not only the first to describe
the process in detail and to illustrate
it but he says that “the French make
it better than the Indian women, from
whom they have learned how to make
it.” Then aagin, Bossu, writing in
1756, says: “After the first ceremon-
ies were over, they brought me a cal-
abash full of the vegetal juice of the
maple tree. The Indians extract it in
January, making a hole at the bol-
tom of it, and apply a little tube to
that. At the first thaw they get a
little barrel full of this juice, which
they boil to a syrup; and being boiled
over again, it changes into a reddish
sugar, looking like Calabrian manna.
The apothecaries justly prefer it to
the sugar which is made of sugar
canes. The French who are settled
at the Illinois have learned from the
Indians to make this syrup, which is
an exceedingly good remedy for colds
and rheumatism.”
Canada was such an important seat
of the maple-sugar industry among
the Indians from the earliest times
that the adoption of the maple-leaf
as the insignia of the Dominion has
added significance.
Education Through Advertising.
Not all of the educational advan-
tages of newspapers and magazines
are contained in the news and edi-
torial columns of these publications.
Much education is also given the peo-
ple by study of their advertising
People have a great deal to learn
by studying the business notices in
their favorite newspapers. They get
valuable information in regard to the
prevailing prices of things. It used
to be said that a farmer was apt to
be a good business man, because he
had to know the prices of everything.
Perhaps one reason why some far-
mers are not better business men, is
that they do not make the careful
study of prices that their business
calls for.
In any occupation, if the people be-
come familiar with what things cost
and what products ought to sell for,
they go a long way to promote their
own success. If people are good buy-
ers and good sellers, they are apt to
win out. Newspaper advertising
helps people know what prices are, so
they can buy and sell shrewdly.
Newspaper advertising distributes
practical and scientific information.
The-home buyer learns what things
are needed for the life of the home.
Information is given about labor sav-
ing devices, about sanitary equipment,
about the methods by which a home
can be comfortably and convenient-
ly furnished, and about the foods
that are consumed daily.
The women learn what they and
their children need for clothes, and
are enabled to make wise purchases.
The men learn of business opportun-
ities and chances to make money. Ad-
vertising gives each issue a story of
the material progress of the commun-
ity, and people know better how to
meet the problems of life if they con-
stantly read the story the advertis-
ing tells them.

State Auto Tests Began on April 2.
Designation of several thousand
garages and services stations as offi-
cial inspection stations at which au-
tomobile owners may have their cars
tested free of expense, was made by
Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Pennsylva-
nia Department of Highways.
The tests will be a part of the safe-
ty campaign begun by Governor Fish-
er, who has set aside the twenty eight
days bteween April 2 and April 30 as
a motor vehicle inspection period.
More than 30 per cent of antomobile
accidents in Pennsylvania are attri-
buted to faculty equipment of motor
vehicles, it was said.
Equipment and automotive associa-
tions, motor clubs, safety councils
and chambers of commerce have also
pledged assistance in the safety cam-
The proclamation of the Governor
provides that every motor vehicle in
{he State shall be inspected by a coin-
petent machanic at a designated and
reliable service station during the per-
iod named and that all cars found un-
safe for operation must be put in a
safe condition.
Certificates of inspection will be
placed on all cars following the tests,
and police will be instructed to order
such tests when the owners are with-
out these certificates.
