Jan. 1, 1898, I had 17 hens and 1 cock which I inventoried at $9. 1 bought all the food fed for the year, except the refuse front the kitchen of which I make no account. I paid for food $7.58. Total $16.58. I set 3 hens, putting 13 eggs under each hen. They hatched 35 chickens; 3 of which died when only a few days old, and one old hen died. I have killed for the table 7 of the old fowls and 12 of this year's raising and 3 are gone for which I cannot account, leaviug me 25 hens and 1 cock.

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 parents. 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 respected. 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. Notice.

At the annual meeting of the share , holders of the First National Bank the , following directors were elected for the ensuing year: Geo. A. Walker, Wm. Howard, B. W. Green, W. S. Walker, N. Seger, J. E. Smith, J. P. Felt, W. L Sykes and Josiah Howard. The staff of officers is as follows: President, Geo. A. Walker; Vice Presi dent, Wm. Howard; Solicitor, B. W. Green; Cashier, M. P.

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- ' three years. 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. A Comic History of Spain. The recent war was a very serious matter, but it had its funny phases. These have been put into jingling verse and merry prose by Charles M. Snyder, author of the famous comic history of Greece.

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.
