JOHN DAY, SR.
Emporium, Pa., Jan. 1, 1899.
To Young Folk.
I will tell you something of the lives
of two men with whom I was acquaint
ed, which will Berve to illustrate what i
I want to call your attention to.
One of these men was the grand-son
of one of the first manufacturers to I
apply machinery to the manufacture
of cloth in this country and bore his j
name. He had, when young, none of
what people usually call bad habits; he 1
neither smoked nor drank, was healthy,
active and quick to learn; had all the !
money he needed and more too, with
out ever having earned a cent. Here
was a mistake —he had no idea of the
value of money or of time, but lived a
careless, heedless life; drifted into bad ;
habits and died years ago, of no good j
use in the world and a dishonor to his j
The other man when young started [
on the shoe bench, with nothing except j
what he could earn with his hands and
no advantages of education. Having I
saved some money he started for an j
academy determined to learn. From
this on il was study, work and work,
study until he secured a diploma as I
M. D. Soon after he started a sani
tarium where he received young peo
ple out of health and endeavored to
build them up and make them hale,
hearty and strong in body, and at the
same time train them mentally. He
surrounded himself with the most im
proved methods of doing both. He
died within a year, honored and
Now what I want to call your at
tention to is the difference in the lives ;
of these two persons. One had an j
object in life and worked diligently;
the other drifted. McKinley and
Dewey are not made of driftwood;
neither are any of the good business
men and women in this or any other
community. Don't drift—work, and
work with an object. Aim high and
then put forth all there is in you to
reach your ideal.
To any person having an account <*it
our store, please call and settle at once
as we are going to leave Emporium.

Cameron's Oldest Lady Dead.
Last Sunday Mrs. Mahala Sibert the
oldest lady within the confines of Cam
eron county passed tranquilly to her re
; ward, at the home of her son James i
Seibert on Moore Hill, aged ninety- '
Mrs. Seibert was born in Somerset
' county, Pa., in 1806 and came to this
; county several years ago to reside
with her son.
The funeral was held from Moore
Hill M. E. church Tuesday afternoon
j and was largely attended.
Paid for Doing Good Work.
The Swedes have a custom which
j might profitably be copied by other
| nations. In the mines of that country 1
the workmen have their tools sharpen- ,
| ed by a special blacksmith, and ho is
paid, not by the number of tools ,
sharpened, but by the number of yards i
bored by the miners whose instruments
he has sharpened during the month.
Thus, when the smith is skillful and >
, does his best he makes more money i
than he does when his work is not
i well done, and there is a decided gain i
all around. ,
A Newspaper Worth Reading.
With a circulation showing a grati- ,
fying increase as compared with a year
; ago, with a more extensive advertising
patronage than ever before, with added
j press facilities which permit of en- j 1
larged editions whenever necessary, ' 1
The Pittsburg Times comes to the \ 1
public for 1899. It modestly claims to '
j be a good all-around newspaper, ne- i '
j glecting no opportunity to entertain j '
its readers and sparing no effort or j 1
expense to get the news accurately !
1 and promptly. While it is Republican ; 1
in politics it endeavors to be fair in j*
discussion. Overlooking no field of '
' human interest, it is carefully edited ; '
and courts the favor of the fireside 1 1
rather than the applause of sensation j 1
mongers. For reference it submits to j '
the unbiased judgment of newspaper j
men anywhere in the territory in ; 1
which it circulates. Three dollars a j
year or six cents a week.
A Splendid Promotion, i 1
Willard Fisher, agent for the Wia- i '
consin Central here, has been given a | 1
splendid promotion by the company. | 1
He was called to Milwaukee yesterday I *
and the ofiicials offered him the posi- I t
lion of traveling frieght agent. The j (
promotion was .such a desirable one '
that Mr. Fisher accepted and expects
j to assume his new duties on the first of
the year. As general agent for the j
I company Mr. Fisher is in line for rapid j.
promotion to still higher positions if!,
he displays the right ability and his ! [
j past record is an indication that he !
will do it. Mr. Fisher is an Ashland !
young man who has lived here nearly !
all of his life and his advancement step j
by step with such regularity is very ; :
gratifying to the citizens. The people | !
of Ashland will regret however that ; *
his new position will require his resi- *
dence elsewhere. As traveling freight i '
agent lie will make his headquarters |
in Eau Claire and will move to that!,
town with his bride.—Ashland News.

Death of Isaac A. hirsch.
Isaac A. Hirsch, aged 76 years, is
dead. The sad intelligence was an
nounced last Monday evening. Mr.
Hirsch, who had been in failing health
during the past two years, had but
recently returned from New York City,
where he hoped to receive medical aid.
Mr. Hirsch and family came to Empo
rium in 1873 and he has conducted a
jewelry establishment in this place
ever since. No citizen of Emporium
has been held in higher esteem by all
classes and creeds. Charitable to a
fault, his last dollar always being given
cheerfully to aid the afflicted and de
pressed. I. A. Hirsch will be pleasant
ly remembered by our citizens.
| Mr. Hirsch was born in Germany in
I 1822 and after serving in the German
j army, learned the trade of jeweler,
| married and came to America with h!s
I most excellent wife, 1854. After a
I short residence in New York City he
! located at Rouseville, Pa., and came to
Emporium in 1873. Ho and his estim
! able wife,(who is prostrated with griei
' and confined to her bed, her condition
I being quite serious,) reared a family of
j live children, all of whom are living
and present to-day at the funeral:
Alfred Hirsch, (son ) of New York
City; H. S. Ness, wife (daughter) and
children, Johnsonburg; Richard H.
Hirsch, (son) Emporium; David Weil,
and wife, (daughter) Buffalo; Theo.
Hirsch, (son) Buffalo.
Isaac A. Hirsch was an honored
| member of Emporium Lodge, A. Y. M.,
i No. 382, and Emporium Chapter, No.

inent elective positions and faithfully
I discharged the duties of every positioi
