XWHEN you see this item mark
ed with an X across its face you
will know that your subscription
is due, or past due. Your name will
be found printed on each copy of the
PRESS, as you receive it and gives the
last date to which you have paid. Our
terms are §2.00 if not paid in advance,
$1.50 in advance. Many, very many,
of our patrons allow their subscrip
tions to run vear after year. This we
are unable to stand. It requires
money to purchase paper and pay em
ployes and we must insist upon the
payment of subscriptions due us. We
have been patient, but "patience lias
ceased to be a virtue," and we now
propose to weed out all those subscri
bers who show no disposition to pay
for their paper. We labor hard to j
give the public a good journal and t
while a majority of our patrons realize |
that fact and pay for it there are bun- j
dreds who never give the matter a I
passing thought, taking it for granted j
that we will always send them the
PRESS, whether we receive pay or not.
We have had an elegant sufficiency of
that kind of kindness. If you want
this paper pay for it—if you don't
want it, stop it and pay what you owe.
We know money is scarce in this
county, yet we also know that our de
linquents could pay if they desired a
part at least.

A Jlodel Farm.
In a sightly place, between 400 and
500 feet above the valley, on one of
the prominent hills which surround
Warren, with a background of native
forest, standing on the brow of the
hill, is the summer home of Hon.
C. W. Stone.
Some distance back of this comforts
able country home is the Airmont
dairy farm, stocked with a registered
herd of Jersey and Holstein cows, well
cared for in comfortable barns, arrang
ed for wintering and storing the crops
that are produced by good farming
and judicial fertilizing of the cultivated
The nearness of the farm to the
Warren Electric Power company's
plant makes it practicable to use elec
tricity, power being used is generated
by means of a 15 horse power motor and
used whenever power is needed. Es
pecially is this convenient in putting
up ensilage, of which large quantities
are used, and it is considered one of
tHe best milk-producing forages of the
All the domestic stock on the farm
shows great care in selection, and Mr.
Stone does not object to riding behind
some fine roadsters when at home dur
his vacations,having laid aside tiis
official duties. It is then that he finds
his farm a resort for rest and recrea
tion and a never-ending source of
pleasure in watching the progress of
improvements, such as making roads,
setting out varieties of trees and shrubs,
obtained at home and abroad, and
there is no greater enjoyment for our
worthy Congressman than the taking
of a hand in this work himself.
Mr. Stone's knowledge of horticul-
I ture is extensive as is evidenced by
' his farm and as can be seen at his
Warren residence where the grounds
are covered with a fine variety and
collection of ornamental and fruit
bearing trees. Among the ornamental
i variety are the English oak and wal
i nut and the St. Helena weeping willow.
At the close of President Harrison's
campaign in 'BB the large log cabin
that was erected on the late Judge
Scofield's lot on Liberty street by Har
| rison's supporters, and which did ex
] cellent service in the progress of the
! local campaign to the Republican
j cause, was purchased by Mr. Stone
j and carefully taken down, removed
land re-ereeted at a conspicuous point
j on his farm west of Warren, a large
j old fashioned' fire-place having been
! added for parties frequently given by
j the family of our Congressman, and it
; is a common saying: "A party up at
' Stone's to-night; see the light."
A gas* well on the farm furnishes
' gas for heat and light, and when the
i family are at home a large beacon
j light may be seen guiding and wel
i coming the guests to this hospitable
j farm and country home.—Warren

Republican County Committee.
The Republican county committee
met at the Warner House last Thurs
day, to fix the date for the holding of
the primary election and county con
vention. Every district in the county
was represented and the best of feel
ing prevailed. On motion it was re
solved that the primary election be
held on Saturday, Sept. 24th, and the
convention on Tuesday, Sept. 27th.
The committee passed a resolution
empowering the committeemen from
each district to select the delegates to
be voted at the primaries, also that all
candidates file their names with the
Secretary of the County Committee
that their name may be printed on the
tickets to be presented to the primary
election ollicers in each district. It
was also decided that inasmuch as the
Associate Judge to be nominated is
conceeded to the eastern section of
the county that no instructions be
voted for said office in Shippen and
Emporium—leaving the delegates free.
That the Republicans may fully under
stand the matter, we will briefly give
the plan decided upon. Each district
is entitled to a certain number of dele
gates; the committeemen from each
district will select the exact number of
Republicans to act as delegates and
place their names in the hands of the
Secretary of the county committee;
the Secretary of the county com
mittee will place the names at the
top of the ticket; below will follow the
names of all candidates for the several
county offices; the voter will mark an
X after the eanditate he desires to
vote for and the candidate receiving
a majority of the votes cast in each
district will receive the votes, in the
convention, of the delegates from his
district for five ballots. The plan is
practically the Crawford county sys
tem and gives the voter a choice of
candidates, not leaving the decision to
the delegates. The tickets will be
placed in the hands of the chairman
of the district committee. The prim
ary election will be conducted under
the Act of Assembly. We believe the
new system will work better and be
more harmonious than a general, .at
times disgusting, scramble for dele
gates. The plan adopted is honest and
fair to all.
A Letter From Ponce.
The following interesting letter
from E. J. Fauzy, of the 10th liegt.
Penn'a. Vol., was received by his wife
a few days ago and kindly submitted
to the PRESS for publication:
July 29, 1898. t
I suppose you will be worried nearly
to death over my tardiness in writing
but I did not have a chance to write
before we left Charleston, and we did
not meet any mail boat on our way
over so you see it is not my fault that
I did not write.
We were on the water seven days
and seven nights and some of the boys
were awful sea-sick before we landed.
Several of the boys are very sick with
typhoid fever and some have malarial
fever, but so far I have been feeling
very well. The climate is very much
better than it was in the states of Ten
nessee, Georgia or South Carolina, be
cause of the sea breeze, but it rains,
every day regular and at night there
is a very heavy dew so it makes it very
dangerous in regards to your lungs
and rheumatics, and also fevers. The
Spaniards are camped about 10 miles
back in the mountains, 5,000 strong,
and when all the Americans are landed
there will be about 20,000 of us and
four batteries of light artillery, so I
guess we can whip the Dons that are
near here, and we expect to start in
the morning for a skirmish after the
Then we go and beseige San Juan
and after we have taken that we will
come home, if Spain does not give up
before then. There is no use for them
to fight us any longer for we are bound
to win and that before long too.
The island is very plentiful with
fruit and the boys are doing it justice
too. There are pineapples, bananas,
cocoanuts, man goes, poneos and bread
fruit, so you see we won't want for
fruit. Sugar cane grows in abundance
here and so rum is equally as plenti
ful . Some of the boys have drank a
trifle too much already.
They captured about fifty Spanish
interpreters last night and to-day, and
I presume some of them will be shot
as spies.
Now don't worry over mail if you
don't get any, for we are going to a
country where mails will be few and
far between, but if anything happens
to me you will get a cablegram from
Capt. A. D. Burns, but there is every
reason to believe that I won't get hurt.
Well, 1 must close for the present
and bid you good night, hoping I will
soon be home with my family, I re
main your
True and loving husband,
I Co. C 16th Regt P. V. I.
Harmony all Along the Line.
Senator Quay and David Martin met
at Philadelphia last Thursday and
now the Combine and Anti-Combine
factions will bury the differences and
work together for the success of the
Republican ticket at the November
election and the re-election of Quay to
the Senate. This is a Republican year
and harmony all along the line is the
watch-word. Cameron county Repub
licans will join the column to victory.
Enacted by the School Board.
At a recent meeting of the Borough
School Board a resolution was passed,
that all pupils attending the public
schools last year who were not present
for examination at the close of last
term must be examined before they
can be promoted.
Examinations will begin at 9:00 a. m.
in the High School building, Thursday,
Aug. 25th. Those who cannot be pres
ent on that day will remain in the
rooms in which they were last year
until another date set for examination.
A Slight Blaze.
The alarm of fire was sounded in the
west ward, Sunday evening at nine
o'clock and upon investigation was
found to be at the dwelling house on
Sixth street, occupied by W. W.
Weeks and owned bv Hyde, Murphy
& Co., of Ridgw: y. The flames
had eaten a small hole on the
J aside wall, back of the kitchen stove,
and were soon extinguished with the
Bid of a few pails of water. The
family were out of town on an excur
sion at the time and Mr. Weeks thinks
if must have been the work of incen
d tries.
Barn Destroyed.
About two o'clock Tuesday morning,
the barn belonging to John Costello,
located at the rear of Eagle Hotel,
was discovered to be on fire and
a general alarm was given, which
v,as quickly responded to by all four
r ~|;;nies.
The Citizens and Hook's were the
first to arrive on the scene and their
prompt action prevented the fire
from spreading to the adjoining build
ings, and in a short time had the
the flames entirely subdued.
Mr. Costello estimates his loss on
the barn and contents at S2OO, with no
insurance. It is reported that a num
ber of "hoboes" were seen issuing
from the burning building at the time
the alarm was given.
Keeping Up His Record.
There is probably no where around,
a more prosperous business man than
Frank McGloin, the "sailor boy
grocer,"and real estate owner of Ridg
way. For the past twenty-six years
he has resided in the borough of Ridg
way and he can with just pride point
to the fact that he owns and has paid
for a house for every year he has been
in the town. On Tuesday he closed
one of the biggest real estate deals of
the season and became the owner of
the R. I. Robinson property, corner of
Center and Elk streets, which he pur
chased from W. H. Hyde, paying
therefore the round sum of SB,OOO.
The newly acquired property consists
of two lots facing Centre St., on which
there are three good dwelling houses.
The houses are very desirable ones and
are now occupied by H. H. Tenßroeck, j
Herman Nauert and Thos. C. Gal- |
braith's families respectively. Mr. j
McGloin's 27 years residence in Ridg- j
way will not lie reached until next j
March, and, in order that his record j
for one house for every year may not |
be broken, it is his intention to build I
on one of the new lots before that
time. He is a good landlord and keeps \
his properties in good repair, thus j
pleasing his tenants and maintaining j
the value of his investments.
Mr. McGloin is not much of a man \
for fuss and feathers, and, he is per- '
fectly well satisfied if he can but be- '
come the owner of "just what joins" i
his own property. His valuable hold- j
ings of real estate have been acquired j
by close attention to business and all
who patronize his grocery or have any
dealings with him in any line of trade
always find that he sells at the lowest
possible living profits and {hat he
handles only goods that he can recom
mend to his friends.—Ridgway Advo
cate. Frank McGloin is well and
favorably known in this section. For
many years he was associated with M.
C. Tulis, of Emporium and together
they traveled this country, visiting
the people who seldom had an oppor
tunity to visit the stores. Mr. McGloin
married Miss Mary Farrell, of Empo
rium, a very excellent young lady.

A few days ago Brady Weikel a far
mer, of Grove, discovered that one of
his hen's nests was being robbed so he
placed a china egg in the nest near the
side of the barn in which was a knot
hold. That evening when he put his
hand in the nest he caught hold of a
large blacksnake which had swallowed
the artificial egg, and being unable to
make his usual exit through the knot
hole had made himself a prisoner and
was promptly executed by his captor.
Now this is not a production of the
liars club nor the result of an over in
dulgence in Joe M's snake producing
fluid, but is a true bill and can be
vouched for by Bill Michaels or Nor
