To Relocate the Districts.
The next legislature will have before it
a bill for the relocation of publie school
districts. (>ne of the features of the
measure will be that school districts need
not necessarily conform to the ward,
borough or township lines. The idea is to
make each school district responsible only
for the children living within its limits.
A SUKE CURE FOR UROUF.
Twenty-Five Year's Constant Use With
out a Failure.
The fir>t indication of croup is hoarse
ness, and iti a child subject to that dis
ease it may be taken a- a sure sign of the
approach of an attack. Following this
hoarseness is u peculiar rough cough, [f
Chamberlain's cough remedy is given as
soon as the child becomes hoarse, or even
after the croupy cough appears, it will
prevent the attack. It is used in many
thousands of homes in this broad land
and never disappoints the anxious mothers.
We have yet to learn of a single instance
in which it has not proved effectual. No
other preparation can show such a record
—twenty-five years' constant use without
a failure. For sale by L. Taggart. dec

A TIP ON CUT GLASS.— WhiIe cut
glass will never entirely take theplace of

L. Taggart has stood behind the pre
scription counter in the town of Em
porium for about thirty years, and he
is entirely safe in saying that he has
personally filled more physician's pre

not think, in view of this experience
and his very low prices you will be
better served by taking your prescrip
tions to him.
THE FAD FOR EBONY. —Perhaps the
most appreciated present a young man
can receive is a fine hair brush. A
really fine brush is a luxury. Genuine
ebony is the most suitable material for
a good brush as it is not only durable
but handsome. Now put on one, two
or three of those elegant sterling
j silver initals, and you have a present
fit for a king. The line at Metzger's is
J the best I have seen and the young

SOMETHING ABOUT RINGS.— More
rings are being worn this season than
for years past, and while fashion de
crees that more jewelry of all kinds
shall be worn, finger rings are the
favored articles. Opals are the favorite
settings, both in solitaire and in
combination with other stones, the
latter way being probably the most
popular. I notice that Metzger has an
an elegant assortment of carefully
selected rings at very reasonable

Some New Thoughts for Those Who
Prefer Picnic Lunches.
Madge was making out a list of
things for the picnic lunch. One
wanted one sort of sandwich, another
of the party another and so on, and as
they were mentioned were written
down until there were nineteen differ
ent kinds. This led to a discussion
of how many different kinds there
Then some one remarked that she
had read in the New York Sun there
were sixty-five virieties. The time
was when there were but three—ham,
tongue and corned beef—with its thin
spread of mustard.
Sandwiches are sold by a number of
grocers all ready for use, nicely put up
in tin boxes until time to take tlieni
out and serve, and are fine.
Besides the familiar ham, tongue,
corned beef, roast beef, turkey, and
chicken sandwiches, there are sold in
these days, either already prepared or
made to order, a dozen varieties of
what might be called fish sandwiches,
these including the commonly sold
sardine sandwiches and anchovy sand
wiches, and sandwiches made with
little fish called sardelles, and salmon
sandwiches, and sandwiches made with
muskallonge, soft shell crab sand
wiches, lobster sandwiches, shrimp
sandwiches, codfish sandwiches and
sandwiches made with a fried codfish
cake between slices of bread. Of
cheese sandwiches there ten at least,
including many regularly supplied and
others made to order.
There are sold nowadays sandwiches
made of various kinds salads, and
orders for such sandwiches are not un
usual. In a place where sandwiches in
great variety are sold, if a customer
asked for a salad sandwich the waiter
wouldn't need to ask what was wanted,
he would know and he would get it for
him without question as a matter of
course, and the same would be true if
the request were for a tomato sand
wich or a sandwich made with water
Of combination sandwiches, made of
more than one kind of meat, as sand
wiches of ham and chicken, chicken,
tongue, and so on, there are various
kinds, as there are also of sandwiches
made of various materials combined,
as for instance, sandwiches made of
minced ham and chow chow, sand
wiches of chopped chicken, ham and
egg, sandwiches of minced tongue and
chicken, egg sandwiches and so 011.
So it would not be very difficult to
enumerate the sixty-five varieties of
sandwiches now made, and new varie
ties are being added all the time.
One of the best of sandwiches served
at a local restaurant is the Club sand
wich, made of small, thin pieces of
turkey, ham, beef, lettuce, pickles,
plenty of red pepper and salt, with an
excellent mayonnaise dressing be
tween two buttered slices of bread,
which are cut triangular shape.
For those who want a good sand
wich but do not want a box sandwich
it may be of interest to know they
may be gotton at the hotels. The
hotels get up fine fresh ones. One
hotel sends out a fine caviere sand
wich made of toasted bread, caviere
and slices of lemon between.—Phila.
Among a collection of curios in J. F.
Parsons' display window, this week,
we noticed a somewhat old and inter
esting publication of the life of Wash
ington. The title of the book is "The
Washingtoniana," and it contains a
sketch of the life and death of "Our
Immortal George," and a copious col
lection of eulogies, orations, poems,
etc.. dedicated to him by the compilers,
Messrs. F. Johnston and Wm. Hamil
ton. It was published in Lancaster in
the year 1802.
