the age of 14 hold a certificate of em

of County Treasurer Chas. J. Howard,
and daughter of Edward and Kathryn
Cusb, died at the hospital at Williams

education at that place, later she at
tenciod the High School at Eldred, from
which place she graduated at the age
of fifteen j«ars. She taught school one

prior to her marriage. In May 1899
she became the wife of Mr. Chas. J.
Howard and to this union fourchildren
were born, the eldest being ten years
of age and the youngest is but four
years old. On Saturday August 20th,
Mrs. Howard was stricken with ap

she was removed to the hospital at
Williamsport, where an operation was
performed immediately, but to no

of Denver, Colo., Mrs. W. B. Thomp
son, of this place, Edward, of Pitts

Howard's friends were legion and her
sadden death is keenly felt and her
early demise is a severe loss to her
little children, who are now at an age
when they most need a mother's love
and care. Her aged parents are
stricken with grief and all the family
are bowed down with their great
The death of this pleasant young
woman was iodeed a terrible shock to
her afflicted family and friends. This
happy, jovial girl as we knew her
when she was only a child, was a de
voted wife, fond mother and seemed
happy to be surrounded by her child
ren and husband. Although wrapped
up in her family and never happier
than when at their country home on
the Portage where she passed her
childhood days, she delighted to enter
tain their friends. We unite with the
friends of the family in tendering our
heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved
husband and children.

Prof. D. B. Peterson, who has been
teaching school at Cameron for the

pointment as principal of the township
schools near Kane, Pa. On Saturday
Prof. Peterson informed the PRESS
that he was going to Kane to look over

congratulate the genial Professor on
his success and hope that everything

Dairy Products as Food.
The products of the dairy are per
haps the most useful articles included
in the human diet. A meal made up
of dishes into which no product of the
dairy cow enters would not be such as
to inspire "the turnpike road to peo
ple's hearts I find lies through their
mouths, or I mistake mankind." Take
away the butter for the bread, the
cream for the coffee and the porridge,
the shortening in the crust and the
biscuits, the in the gravy and in the
puddings, the cream for the dessert
and the various kiuds of cheese which
please and satisfy, then take away the
cup of milk for the little one and the
meal that would be left would be nei
ther tempting nor nutritious.
The health of our people depends
so much upon an adequate supply of
pure dairy products that even a scar
city is always attended by suffering
Butter is sometimes referred to as a
luxury. This is a mistake. Butter is
not a luxury but one of the necessities
of life, and its composition is such that
nothing can take its place and per
form the same function. It is nature's
product compounded in the maternal
organism and the process is in accor
dance with nature's law, a law which
man can imitate but cannot under
stand. Man can manufacture from
various fats and oils a substitute for
butter but it cannot take the place of
nature's product because man cannot
understand the needs of the human
body as nature understands them.
The animal body is developed best
when nourished by foods which have
been little manipulated by man and
machinery. Dairy products are, as a
rule, consumed nearly as pasture pro
duced them. This is particularly true
with milk upon which the growing
body must depend. In the case of but
ter only a small percentage of other
products are added to the fat extract
ed from the milk. Man only manipu
lates it in order to put it in convenient
shape for use. It can still be termed a
product of nature designed as only
natnre can design for use as food by
the human body.

Died al Ridgway.
Mrs. John Cummings and Mr. James
P. Creighton, of this place, who went
to Ridgway, Wrdnesday morning,
were called there by the very serious
illness of their mother, Mrs. Mary
Creigton, whose death occured at that
place, Wednesdday evening at seven
o'clock. We copy the following from
to-day's Ridgway Democrat:
"Mrs. Mary Creighton, for years one
of the very highly respected residents
of Ridgway, passed peacefully away at
her home at 201 South Main street
shortly before seven o'clock last even
ing. A serious attack of heart trouble
hastened the end, although she has
been afflicted for some time with a
complication of diseases, brought on
partly by her advanced age.
Deceased has been confined to the
bed the greater part of the present
summer, suffering with various ills.
Her condition, however was never
regarded as exactly dangerous dur
ing all that time, until the failure of
her heart last evening gave a warning
ot the inevitable, but all too late.
Mrs. Creighton was born in County
Clare, Ireland, sixty seven years ago.
When about six years of age she came
to this country with her parents, who
settled in the Eastern section of the
United States. She was married to
John Creighton who died in 1894 and
ever since that time Mrs. Creighton
has resided in this city.
Deceased is survived by tae follow
ing children: Mrs. John Cummings,
of Emporium; James P., of Emporium:
Mrs. J. F. Roach, of Peoria, 111.; W. H.
Creighton, of Bellville, Ark.; Mrs. J.
T. McMinn, of Punxsutawney, Pa.; the
Misses Agnes, and Lucy and Luke A.
Creighton, the latter three at home.
She was a taithhful professor of the
Catholic faith all her life, and services
will be held from the local church."
The funeral of this venerable old
lady will take place on Saturday morn
ing at nine o'clock.

Another Misleading Statement.
So much has been said relative to
the expenses connected with Broad
street paving and so many false reports
issued, or rather circulated, calculated
to deceive the tax-payers, that we pub
lished in the PRESS recently a state
ment of the Borough financial condi
tion on July 16th, 1910, over the signa
ture of Mr. E. D. White, our efficient
and capable Borough Treasurer, who
certainly had the proper data at hand
to verify his statement. The Burgess,
or even any tax-payer could secure the
statement just as readily as THE PRESS.
This report was issued July 16, 1910,
there being of course the August bills
to add to the disbursements, all work
under construction having been com
pleted as ordered or contracted for by
We notice in last week's East Em
porium Independent an open letter
from Burgess Marshall, wherein he in
dulges in some more misrepresenta
tions. In the first place he asks if we
intend to pay the borough expenses
and pave Fourth street from the 1910
tax budget. Our answer: Is the cost
of Broad street paving taken from the
1910 tax? Certainly not—any school
boy should know better! It is the de
sire of, and intention, of the Borough
Council to place all bonds, for improve
ments and the up-building of Empori
um, for a long term of years, at a low
rate of interest. Mr. Burgess again
disputes the genuineness of Mr. White's
statement, issued July 16,1910, over a
month ago, because the figures do not
lie. The tax-payers fully understand
the fact that two-thirds of the cost of
paving Broad Street is repaid by the
abutting property owners into the
Borough treasury. In case Fourth
street, or any portion of it, should be
paved this year, or at any future time,
the tax payers-at-large would be taxed
for one-third the cost.
"What think you, Mr. Tax-payer?"
Are we to continue hauling mud, cind
ers, dirt and other matter to fill up our
roads or crossings, only to repeat the
waste of money year after year? We
are emphatically in favor of paving
every foot of Fourth street from Junc
tion to Iron Bridge, near Woodland
Avenue; to be decided by popular vote
and the Borough bonded for thirty
years, which would cost each tax
payer about two cents on a dollar of
valuation, each year. "What think
you, Mr. Tax-payer."
Wild People That Live on Milk
In the South country of Afrioa there
is a naked race of savages that lives
solely on blood and milk mixed. J.
Alden Loring, one of the naturalists
who accompanied the ex-president,
describes these people and their
habits in bis illustrated lecture
"Through Africa with Roosevelt."
Emporium Opera House, Saturday
evening, Sept. 10.
Last Sunday, four of Emporium's
young hopefuls started for a long walk
which resulted in a jaunt of about fif
teen miles. They started from East
Emporium and tramped the pipe line
to Hunts Rnn; thence to Cameron and
again to Emporium, having made the
trip in a little over four hours. The
walkers were Messrs Fred Metzger,
George Pipor, Riley Murray and Will
Spence. They are contemplating an
other trip in the near future.
