Resolved, That it ia with pride that we point to

proval of a uuited country, who are ready and
anxious to stand by him in any contingency.
Resolved, That the Republicans of Cameron
county, in presenting the name of their fellow
citizen and honored neighbor, Mr. B. W. Green,
an honored member of the Cameron County Par
for President Judge, do so with the best interest
of the people at heart, believing that the high
legal ability and standing of our candidate will
rally to his support a strong following of repre
sentative men of all interestsin thisdistrict. The
republicans of Cameron county in convention
assembled heartily endorse his candidacy and
hereby convey to him the authority to choose
his own Conferees.
Resolved , Thai the almost unanimous choice of
the great Northwest, as well ;is many other
sections of the Keystone State, are emphatically
ill favor of the nomination of Hon. Charles W.
Stone, of Warren county, for Governor. His
brilliant career as Lieutenant Governor,, Secretary
of the Commonwealth, Congressman, State
Senator, as well as a private citizen, makes him a
strong candidate before the Convention; a candi
date who would unite all elements in the party
anil insure a brilliant victorv at the polls, and a
conservative administration or state affairs. We
cordially endorse his candidacy and instruct the
delegate tins day elected to represent the Uenub

meet the delegates. Mr. B. W.
Green, the choice of Cameron county
for President Judge, was introduced by
the Chairman, and was received
with applause and returned his thanks
in an able manner. After the applause
had subsided, he said:
Mr. Chairman, Delegates of this Convention,
Fellow Citizens:—! would indeed be ungrateful if
I did not express to you my sincere thanks for
the high honor you have conferred upon me this
day in placing mv name in nomination for the
responsible position of President Judge of this

during the somewhat exciting canvass that has

his warm supporters for the courteous treatment
at all times extended to me during this period.
In relation to my candidacy lean but reaffirm

people of this district that I will perform the

and to the best of my ability. It will be my
earnest endeavor to treat all persons equally. I

I most heartily endorse the great principles of the
Republican party, and will at all times endeavor
to further its interests. The action of this con

To the Farmers Who Are Milk Pro
Tho following items were contribut
ed by a wide-wake young farmer who
honestly and conscientiously believed
that it was to his interest to take care
of the milk produced on his farm at
home and not send it to the Creamery.
All argument failed to change his
views until he sat down in the quiet of
his home, and like a good business
man that he is, figured the cost on both
sides. See the result, viz:
"For making butter from six cows,
averaging 225 lbs per cow per year, the
expenses are as follows:
For skimming, taking care of cream,
removing specks, etc., that are bound
to fall on cream where milk is set in
pans—one hour |jer day for nine
months equals four weeks, at $1.50 per
week $6 00
For churning three hours per
week for nine months equals
one week and three and one
half days at $1.50 per week 2 25
For working and packing the
butter ready for market, taking
one day per week for nine
months equals five weeks at $1.50
per week, 7 50
For taking butter to town and
delivering requires one man and
team one half day per week for
nine months, which equals
eighteen days at $2.00 per day, 36 00
Total, ssl 75
This does not include salt, butter
paper, crocks, wear and tear, nor oc
casional losses by poor accounts, nor
time consumed in collecting good ac
counts. The wages too ar« figured at
about one-third to one fourth less than
the prevailing wages in this com
At these figures, even after making
these deductions, it costs me about
four cents per pound to make butter.
The Creamery makes and sells it for
me at three and one-half cents per
pound and gives me the cash at the
end of every month without worry or
trouble. By patronizing the Creamery
I am the gainer of one half cent per
pound in making, and by the differ
ence in quantity obtained by the Sepa
rator over that of the pan creaming
system I think I gain another one-half
cent or more per pound.
The above figures are based on nine
months of the year and I think it
would be utterly impossible to hire it
done at these prices.
If Creamery butter will average me
sixteen and one-half cents per pound
net, I thi:ik it is equal to twenty-two
cents or n >re the old way. In addi
tion tin » 'reamery Company has the
worry and my wife is relieved of one
of the responsibilities which causes so
many farmers wives no end of pain
Yours in Creamery success,"
It is needless for us to say that this
young man will send his milk to the
Creamery. We have figured the above
at the generally paid prices and find
that it costs four and eight-tenths
cents per pound to make the butter at
home,leaving out the same accessories
that he does. If these could be esti
mated it would no doubt make five
and one-half cents per pound. The
only reason the Creamery can do this
same work for less than it can be done
for at home is that it is just as easy
and costs no more to make one thous
and pounds with improved machinery
than it does to make ten pounds.
Farmers read this over again and
think abont it.
Last Thursday evening a number of
friends paid their respects to Mr. and
Mrs. D.C. Hayes, at their cozy home on

Funeral of Joseph Parsons.
We mentioned in our last issue the
death of Mr. Jos. Parsons, father of
our townsman, J. F. Parsons, who lias
returned from paying the last mark of
respect to a kind parent. Mr. Parsons
has received many kind expressions of
sympathy from our citizens. The
Lock Haven Ilepy.blicun says:
"Alderman Joseph Parsons, one of
the oldest citizens of Lock Haven, died
Thursday morning at 8:30 o'clock at
his residence on Water street. He is
survived by two daughters, Mrs. Mary
E. Canfleld and Mrs. Georgie Deitriek,
and four sons, John F., of Emporium ;
William E., Edward K., and Charlas
P., all of this city.
Deceased was born at Wolemsdorf,
February 12th, 1817, and was conse
quently aged 81 years 1 month and 5
He was engaged in his early life as
superintendent and contractor in the
construction of the state canals, in
building dams and sehutes. In 1863 or
64 he came to Lock Haven where he
has since resided. He was a great
student and a man of more than ordi
nary intelligence, well informed on
current events as well as having a com
plete knowledge of general history.
Alderman Parsons was highly es
teemed by all who knew him. At the
time of his death he was serving his
fifth consecutive term as Alderman of
the Second ward.
Rev. J E. Wright, D. D., conducted
the funeral services over the remains
of Alderman Joseph Parsons on Sat
urday afternoon. A large number of
friends were present and many follow
ed the remains to the cemetery. Mrs.
Übil, Mrs. Lichtenthaler, Mr. J. D.
Übil and Mr. H. B. Geary sang appro
priate selections. The Masonic frater
nity had charge of the funeral, and the
pall bearers were J. W. Harris, M. B.

The Convention's Work.
The Republican County Convention,
last Tuesday, faithfully carried out the
wishes of their constituents as express
ed at the primaries last Saturday. The
proceedings were very harmonious
and the work of the Convention meets
with the approbation of the Republi
can voters of the county, as well as a
large following of influential demo
crats, The unanimous endorsement of
the candidacy of Mr. 15. W. Green, of
Emporium, after a hotly contested
canvass, is a very flattering compli
ment to that gentleman, who feelingly
expressed his thanks to his friends and
especially thanked his greatly respect
ed and honored opponent, Hon J. C.
Johnson, for the courtesy extended
him during the canvass for the nomin
ation. That Mr. Green will receive
the nomination at the hands of the
district convention there is little, if
any doubt. His high legal ability,
sound judgement, and just, fair and
honorable course as a citizen and law
yer eminently fits him for the respons
ible and honorable position of President
Judge of this 25th district. Mr. Green
is in the prime of life, is energetic and
faithful in the discharge of any duty
imposed upon him; he would take to
the bench young blood—learned in
law, just to the people—fair to all.
We hope the Democrats of the dis
trict will be fair with the Republicans
and endorse Mr. Green's candidacy.
Ten years ago we endorsed the candi
dacy of Hon. C. A. Mayer, now clos
ing his 30tli year upon the bench, and
it was presumed that at his advanced
age he would not ask a re-election at
the hands of the people. We believe
emphatically in freeing the bench from
political dictation and that the candi
dacy and election of Mr. Green is and
would be satisfactory to a majority of
the voters of this district.
