It Is our custom to clvo our books .i
thorough overliniillnjr.on tho llrst of tho
year. In accordance with tills rule,
bills nnvc ucen nrnae out lor every
person who owes lor a year or more up to
Janunry 1st, 1883. These bills have been
sent out In sealed envelopes with a three
cent stnmp on each one, because; we have
found by experience that bills sent In the
papers receive little or no attention. A
list of nil those to whom bills me sent, Is
kept, and those who do not respond nro
marked down ns "slow pay." Inputting
tho price of the paper at SI. GO n yenr In
advance, we hoped to secure prompt pay.
mcnts, and thus save the postage, printing
and time expended In looking after non.
paying subscribers. On somo delinquents
as much ns fifteen cents' postage has al
ready been expended without any result,
besides the cost of envelopes and printed
circulars. To such, we cannot send the
paper for two or three years, and then ac
cept the low rate, the same as if paid In
ndvancc. All bills sent out, when more
than one year is due,have been made $3.00
a year, and this will be Insisted on, except
where the following condition Is compiled
All those who pay in full to January tl, 1884,
can settle at the rate oSl.GO a year, provided
they pay before February 1st, 1883.
Wo have extended the time one month,
because it is cheaper to do so, than to
travel over tho county trying to collect.
Those who reject this liberal offer will
positively bo charged $2.00 a year, nnd
those who owe for several years will have
their papers stopped and tho amounts
placed for collection. Wo are obliged to
say so much because there are hundreds
of dollars due us that wo badly need to
pay our bills and make further improve
ments in our ofllce. "Business Is busi
ness," and it is impossible to run our es.
tabllshmcut on promises and open book
Wo know our prompt paying patrons
will pardon us for occupying so much
pace on this subject, as it is not often '
that we print duns in the paper, but neces
sity compels it now.

an old und familiar one, tho "War of Inde

that ho did not expect to say anything new,
but simply to recall somo facts which his
hearers had forgotten. Ho gavo a vivid

Now that tho holidays arc' gone, tho

can be done In this way. A call nt the
school by the parent not only Incites tho
teacher to renewed efforts for tho better
advancement of his or her pupils, but
shows tho pupils that they nro being kept

"The State Normal Schools will doubtless
bo constrained to present their condition
nnd their claims to tho" Legislature. Somo
of them nro badly Involved lu debt, nnd
others, which havo contracted no serious
Indebtedness, aro without adequato equip
ment. These schools nro an Important and
valuable part of tho educational work of
tho State. During tho past four years tho
appropriations to theso schools, by the
State, havo been distributed to them on tho
apparent equity of each case. Tho pay.
mcnts thus mado have not been absolute,
but for their amounts, Hens havo been
taken, in favor of the State, against tho
property of the schools. I think this policy
should bo continued until nil the schools
aro relieved of any Indebtedness, not mi
providently contracted, nnd their equip
ment fairly equalized. In that event, these
normal schools should bo brought, to u
greater extent, under tho control of the
State. Thereafter they should be self-sus
taining, nnd not expect that tho State should
come to their aid, Indefinitely." Extract

The Lead Mines. The work on the two
drifts has been prosecuted with great vigor
for the last two days. Good Indications of
quartz containing oxydes of lead have been
reached, although but ten feet of drift has
been excavated. The pilch of tho vein by n
miner's level, is about 33J degrees. A math
cmatlcal calculation hns been made as to the
number of feet the tunnel will havo to be
driven to rench tho vein, nnd It is expected
to reach them at 40 feet. As soon as the
main veins are reached breasts will be open
ed at once- Tho latest modern appliances
will be used for mining, nnd no method left
untried to secure those Interested In the en
terprise tho greatest possible money return.
The lead mines below Sunbury aro part of
the mineral belt of which outcropplngs nre
found at many places In Snyder, Mifflin,
Clearfield, Huntingdon nnd Columbia coun
ties, nnd is from sixty to eighty miles In
width. The south dip crops out below
Sunbury, saddling over and dipping south
and 1b pinched off by the coal measures. On
the north dip the veins go under the river
nnd form a basin between Sunbury and
Northumberland, coming up again above
Bloomsburg, near Espytown, in Columbia
county, forming nn immense basin of ore
that would take a century to mine. Out
cropplngs have been found near Seven
Points, five miles east of the Sunbury mine,
proving that there are continuous veins of
mineral running east of tho Sunbury mines.
The opening of these mines will not only be
a great enterprise but will be the means of
developing all the surrounding mines.

Northumberland Wnklnic fl.
The ancient town of Northumberland is
catching on" to tho progressive spirit of
the nineteenth century, and Is just now
experiencing an industrial boom. A new
nail factory on nu extensive scale, a woolen
mill, and a fuctory for tho purpose of
making agricultural implements will
shortly appear among the industries of the
place, and those who have been holding
real estato lor tho last half century in hope
of an advance arc now selling their lots ut
fancy prices. It was thought that nothing
short of an earthquake would stir up
Northumberland, but this was a mistaken
notion, judging by the enterprise that has
just appeared there. It is a pleasure to
know that tho prospects of the venerable
town nro so promising.and wo congratulate
its citizens on the out look. Sunbury Demo
Ileal estate is apparently advancing in
value, especially all that which fronts on
