A well posted exchange says that
" the editor of a country newspaper
might just as well try to make an hon
est living trying to sell ice machines in
the Klondike regions as to try to please
everybody in the columns of his paper."
A correspondent wants to know the
origin of the phrase, "he isn't in it."
It was first used by an editor who died
and went to heaven, and looked for
the man who took his paper for five
years and then refused to pay for it.

A farmer writes to an exchange as
follows: "Every year I hear of cater
pillars destroying whole orchards.
There is nothing so easy to dispose of.

to reach the sap, fill it with sulphur
and plug it up. The sap takes the
sulphur to every limb and twig and
the catterpillars disappear at once. I
have used it for years.
The Philadelphia Inquirer shrieks,
"Keep the bench out of politics." It
is a mighty poor rule that will not
work both ways. Therefore the Judges
who sit upon the bench should keep
out of politics themselves. But we are
sorry to say that some of them descend
to the low slums of the ward heeler
when they see a chance to advance
their party's interests, which is a dis
grace to the judiciary of this or any
other State.—McKean Democrat.
The Wellsboro Gazette very truth
fully remarks: The home merchant is
the man who gives credit when the
purchaser has no cash to buy the
necessities of life. The home merchant
is the man who helps pay the taxes
that run schools and build roads. The
home merchant is the man to whom
people appeal for favors. Then why
should he be ignored when a purchase
isjmade? He sells his goods at as low a
figure as merchants in other towns.
But then, the home merchant should
get his printing at home too.

McKinley Decides to
Take Porto Rico
at Once.
Plan to Hush an Overwhelming Porce to the
Island—nile.s to See the President Before
Starting -Thousands Have (imbarked Wat
son's Mission to Spain Ammunition on the
Way to fleet the Commodore at a Rendezvous
Agreed Upon—Hot Work Ahead.
From The Philadelphia Record.
Washington, I). C.. July IS.—
President McKinley practically
gave up to-day all present hope of
peace with Spain, and personally
directed that the Porto Rico expe
dition and that of Commodore Wat
son should be dispatched at the
earliest possible moment.
Commodore Watson's fleet will
this week take on board the ammu
nition and other necessary supplies
which the Yankee, just off from
New York, is to get to the,m by
Wednesday, at a secret point of
rendezvous, while General Miles
and Admiral Sampson are to begin
the Porto Rico campaign within
ten days or two weeks.
General Miles, who is to be the
commander-in-chief of the land
forces at Porto Rico, with General
Brooke as his chief subordinate,
was to leave on the Vale to-night
from near Santiago for New York
city, and not Porto Rico, as was
reported this afternoon.
At New York the Yale is to get
coal and supplies and prepare to
take some of the troops to Porto
General Miles is then expected in
Washington at the end of the week,
so that t he President and Secretary
Alger may confer with him person
ally about the plan of campaign and
the policy to be pursued in the
island of Porto Rico after it comes
into our possession.
In the meantime, General Brooke,
who made his farewell visits to the
President and Secretary Alger this
afternoon, is to organize the troops
that are to be sent from the United
States. These will not have to be
so numerous as was expected, now
that General Miles reports that a
large part of the army at Santiago
has not been infected with the yel
low fever, and will be utilized in
the Porto Rico expedition.
But the War Department is
moved to limit the number of
troops to be taken from Santiago
rather closely beyond the artillery
and Roosevelt's Rough Riders.
In order to have an overwhelm
ing force, in view of the conflicting
reports about the number of Span
ish regulars in Porto Rico —varying
from 5000 to ts,(MMl — for the Span
ish volunteers are not seriously con
sidered. and to allow for all the con
tingencies suggested by the Santiago
campaign, the Administration may
send 35,000 troops in all to Porto
President McKinley said to-day
that he did not propose to have a
repetition in this case of the annoy
ing delays that held back the Santi
ago expedition at Tampa, and that
he had no reason to expect it, since
the men and the munitions, equip
ments and supplies were now so
nearly ready.
Between 10,000 and 15,000 of
the troops for Porto Rico are re
ported as already on transports
with their guns and supplies.
All the regulars at Tampa, 0200
in number, including 12 batteries
of heavy and light artillery, were
reported as embarked on transports
to-day, while part of Gen. Brooke's
corps, numbering 3000 or 4000 men,
is reported as on transports at
Charleston, and four batteries of
artillery besides other troops sent
to Santiago, but never landed, are
still on the transports there.
The embarkation of the troops at
Tampa and Charleston seems pre
mature, since it is not proposed to
send the army to Porto Rico in de
tachments, according to the author
ities here, as was done at Santiago,
but to send it all at once and in
conjunction with Admiral Samp
son's squadron. ( Jen. Brooke can
certainly not get the rest of his
army in this country embarked be
fore the end of the week.
General Brooke said this after
noon that it was certain that Gen
eral .lames 11. Wilson's division,
including the Fourth and Sixteenth
Pennsylvania, the Second and Third
Wisconsin, the Fourth Ohio, and
the Third Illinois will goto Porto
Rico. The Sixteenth Pennsylvania
and the two Wisconsin regiments
are already reported 011 transports
sailing from Charleston, and the
rest will go from Newport News.
The Third Brigade, including the
Third Pennsylvania, is also going,
as are also all the other commands
comprising the Fourth Corps at
Tampa. General Fitzhugh Lee has
been telegraphing for permission to
goto Porto llico, but he may have
to wait for the campaign against
11 ava na.
The part which the navy is to
take in the assault against Porto
Rico has been fully matured. The
several transport fleets will have
with them 011 c or two auxiliary
craft, carrying strong secondary
batteries of six or eight six-pound
ers. Secretary Long said this after
noon that 110 time had been fixed
for the departure of Admiral Samp
son's licet for San Juan. As to the
naval plans, he would only say that
tliey would co-operate in every way
with the movements of the army.
Secretary Long said to-day that
110 apprehension whatever existed
over the Spanish threat that the
(.'umara squadron would be divided,
part of the ships coming to this side
to attack American seaport cities.
It is believed by the Adminis
tration that after Porto Rico is
taken and the Spanish coast is at
tacked by Commodore Watson,
Spain's pride may become suffici
ently humbled to accept the inevit
able without waiting for the capture
of Ha vana, postponed until tlieelose
of the rainy season.
One Clean Place.
There is one place in town where
every glass is washed in hot water and
polished every time it is used. It is lots
of work but it pays, because clean people
go there for soda. You don't have to ask
where it is—Metzger's, of course.

with a bad cold which settled on my
lungs; cough set in and finally termin
ated in Consumption. Four Doctors
gave me up, saying I could live but a
short time. I gave myself up to my
Saviour, determined if I could not stay
with my friends on earth, I would meet
my absent ones above. My husband
was advised to get Dr. King's New
Discovery for Consumption, Coughs
