THURSDAV. JANUARY 13. 1010
His some excuse for not
reading his home piper.
Then there are others
those who are so blind that
they won't see.
STATE TREASURER ELECT DEAD.
Death causes a situation for which
there are no precedents in
State Treasurer-elect, J. A. Sto
ber, died suddenly at his home
in Lancaster county on Mon
day. He was in apparently good
health when he retired Sunday
night, but his wife found him dead
in bed next morning.
He was elected at the November
election, and would have entered
upon his duties on May 2nd.
His death has caused a peculiar
situation. Not since the adoption
of the constitution in 1S73 has any
similar case occurred, and state of
ficials say there are no precedents
by which to be guided.
The question that has arisen is,
how shall the vacancy be filled?
Shall the Governor appoint, or does
the schedule for the constitutioual
amendments, adopted last Novem
ber, prevent an election of a State
Treasurer until 191 2?
The matter will be referred to
the Attorney General by the Gov
ernor for decision.
Concert at Normal School.
The date of the concert of the
Redpath Grand Quartette, in the
Normal Auditorium, has been
changed from January 21 to Tues
day evening,' January iS.
The quartette is composed of Mr.
Cecil James, Dr. Ion Jackson, Dr.
Carl Duft, and Mr. Frederick Mar
tin. Their supreme musical ability
makes possible the rendition of a
wealth of the great literature writ
ten by the master composers, which
must forever remain lost to all but
the fortunate few who live in or
near the great cities. However, it
is not to be implied that the pro
grams of the quartet will be limited
merely to the classics, for they will
sing the folk-songs of the South
land in tneir soft negro dialect and
syncopated rhythms; they will sing
the good old G. A. R. songs with
such a dash and thrill that you will
think you are again sitting around
the camp-fire with the old comrades
who have been dead a dozen years;
they will sing "Home, Sweet
Home," "Anuie Laurie," "Su
anee River" and the simple songs
you love so well, and will call uo
aut of th past a flood of child
hood's memories that will dim your
Myes; and then they will sing some
bit of exquisite, irresistible non
sense which will send you home
with a lighter, stronger heart-refreshed
for tomorrow's battle in
the work-a-day world.
There is more Catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years
doctors pronounced it a local dis
ease and prescribed local remedies,
and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science has proven
.atarrh to be a constitutional dis
ease and therefore requires consti
.utional treatment. Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
nly constitutional cure on the
uarket. It is taken internally in
closes from 10 drops to a teaspoon--ul.
It acts dirtttly on the blood
nd mucous surfaces of the system.
They offer one hundred dollars for
my case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testimonials.

Second Class Mail's Cost.
Particular attention is devoted to
second class mail matter in the an
nual report of the Third Assistant
Postmaster General, made public
on Tuesday. Fostmaster General
Hitchcock in his annual report al
ready recommended an increase in
the charge for transporting through
the mails weekly and monthly mag
azines. Mr. Travers in the report
"The cost of handling second
class matter per pound having been
estimated, by your special commit
tee, which has recently rendered
its report, to be slightly over 9 cents
per pound, based upon the special
weighing ot the mails in 1907, the
cost of handling the above items ot
second class matter is approximate
ly $64,000,000 in excess of the rev
enue at 1 cent a pound ($7,232,
331.82) derived therefrom."
A detailed report is made of the
issuanee of postage stamps, stamp
ed envelopes, newspaper wrappers,
aud postal cards. In every instance
the statements show a large in
crease, due to the country's pros
perity. Memory by Smell.
The sense of smell, though almost
a lost sense with modern man, as Is
well known, sometimes brings back to
memory the strongest visions,
thoughts and impressions of the past.
