THE CAMERON COUNTY PRESS.
ESTABLISHED BY C. B. GOULD, MARCH, 1866.
By 40,000 Plurality
The entire Republican State ticket iB
elected by a plurality estimated at 40,-
000. The Legislature and State Senate
is overwhelming Republican. The
Congressional delegation stands 26
Republicans and seven Democrats.
This three-cornered battle, slander,
villification and unrest in certain quar
ters of the State made the battle very
uncertain for a few hours after the
polls closed, yet we never for one mo
ment believed that Congressman Ten
er and his associates on the Republican
ticket would fail to receive a majority
of the ballots. The Democratic State
ticket was lost sight of. Berry, who
has been a follower of every party and
ism in his ellort to feed from the pub
lic crib has disappeared never to be
heard of again.
The election of the Republican State
candidates, all gentlemen of ability,
will be an honor to Pennsylvania and
assures a continuance of the wise poli
cy pursued by Governor Stuart.
In Cameron county the campaign
has been very decent—free from cam
paign personalities, boodle and liquor.
With the very light vote cast (less than
1,300) is regretted by all, yet it answer
ed every purpose. Had tho entire
vote been cast no doubt both the Re
pub ican State and county ticket would
have been increased two hundred.
However, the handsome majority giv
en Hon. Josiah Howard (253) was suffi
cient for all purposes.
The battle has closed and now all
can turn their attention to matters of
greater importance to Cameron coun
The elections in many States are not
what they should be. New York,
Ohio, New Jersey, and Mass, have
•lected the Democratic Governors.
Lower House of Congress will likely
be Democratic. The Legislatures in
most of the States going Democratic
remain Republican, insuring the elec
tion ot Republican United States Sena

Very Enjoyable Hallowe'en Party*
At the Bummonsofthe "Gray Witch"
and "Black Wizard Orders of Necro
mancers,'' a party of about twenty
young people assembled themselves at
the home of Miss Rotha Kreider, at
Driftwood, Pa., on Hallowe'en.
Each gentleman who accepted the
invitatin was given, on bis arrival, a
padlock fashioned from card beard, on
which was sketched a lock, and be
neath the lock theee lines were writ
"Here's the padlock, find the key
And learn what fate's prepared for
According to these instructions each
owner found the girl whose cardboard
key fitted his lock. Beneath the card
board covers of the padlock were sheets
ofpaper containing instructions for the
evening, and on each page each
gentleman found a girl's name, with
whom, in turn, he carried out the In
After the "Gray Witch" and "Black
Wiz rd" h id ushered iu the guests and
presented them with keys and padlocks
they leftthem in the care of two ghosts
who acted as guides during the even
The first number on the program
was a wedding ring contest, in which
a wedding ring was fastened to the
chandeliers by means of a piece of rub
ber, which was kept in motion. Each
guest in tuin, tried to learn his fate by
trying to catch the ring by means of a
forked stick. If he succeeded in get
ting the forked stick through the ring,
fate decreed that he or she should be
successful in love and wedlock. Miss
Edna Mitchell and Mr. Thaddeus
Brooks were the only successful oDes.
The next number was a , tnpkin
seed contest Each guest was i.trnish
ed with a needle and thread. Then a
large oumpkin, in black,
shaped like a huge bow), and contain
ing dried pumpkin seeds, was placed
in the centre ol the room, and each
guest tried to see who could string the
largest number of pumpkin seeds In
the next fifteen minutes. Miss Carrie
Corbett was the winner and received a
handsome "fried-cake man," as a prize.
The guides then directed the guests
to"The Spring of Perpetual Youth,"
which was found in a room in a re
mote part of the house The way was
dimly lighted and all along the way
were ghostly looking figures. The
room was beautifully decorated in
green and white.
The spring was a large bucket sur
rounded with green, representing
a moss covered well-sweep. From
this spring, two little girls, Georgie
Kreider and Francelia Osburn, dressed
as fairies, served fruit punch.
All again were led back to the draw
ing room, where a large black witch
holding a broomstich had been pinned
on a sheet. On this sheet were pinned
small envelopes containing slips of
paper with fortunes written on each.
Eachguest was blindfoldi d and turn
ed about several times anil was theu
allowed to seek her fortui.e by touch
ing the sheet with the end of a small
broomstick. The fortune promising
the brightest future was placed nearest
the witche's outstretchid har.d.
After all had read their tortunes,
they were again direct* <1 to a room in
a remote part ol tho house. This room
was decorated in Japant sesty le, where
dwelt the "Sibyl of Teretia," who told
fortunes with t"aground«. Miss Ger
trude Hill, with great tact, unfolded
the'future to all the guests with her
magic cup o' tea.
The ghosts again met the guests at
the parlor door and guidt d them by a
mysterious path, around the house to a
cave, where dwelt the wizard wise and
grave. Mr. Winslow, who has become
a famous Astrologer, w.is dressed in a
flawing robe anU wore a false face,
repret-entiug a hermit in bis den. The
guesta were greatly amn»ed at his ap
pearance snd skill in fortune telling.
After finding their way back to the
parlor they were directed to a room
beautifully decorated in flowers and
evergreen, where Ophelia from her
bower presented a llower frome her
basket to each of her guests and told
The ghosts now pointed to the
gapsy'shome, a tent with leaves and
branches representing the wooda.
Chestnuts were strewn among the
leaves. A tive-miuute chestnut hunt
was now announced. Mr. Arnold re<

ROBERT C. DODSON, ag6d 50 years,
died at the family home on Fourth
Street, at one o'clock Wednesday after
noon, after a lingering illness of sever
al months. Mr. Dodson has been a
resident of Emporium for 39 years com
ing here in 1871 from Williamsport.
He entered the employ of the late Hon.
Leonard Taggart, as drug clerk, and a
few years later started in business for
himself, which he successfully conduc
ted for several years. On October Ist
of this year, (39th anniversary of his
advent in Emporium), he went to
Williamsport and entered the hospi
tal in hopes that he would be benefit
ted, but receiving no encouragement
he returned home. Deceased is sur
vived by his wife and six children,
Frank, Margaret, Ophelia, Mary,
Avice and John, all at home. He is al
so eurvived by an nged mother, who
resides in Florida, in feeble health, and
the following brothers and sisters,
Jessee, Ida, Stella, Will, Frank and
Charles, all residing in the far west.
The death of Mr. Dodson, while not
unexpected, is very generally deplor
ed by our citizens. Mr. Dodson, whom
we always greatly respected, was an
honor to his family ai d this commu
nity. During his long il'ness every
effoat was made to ascertain the cause
of his illness yet it seemed to be a mys
tery. After death an autopsy was per
formed by Dre. Smith and Bush, yes

that his malady was enemia, of an in

In loving remembrance of the infant
son of Mr. and Mrs. William Fox, who
died November sth, 1910, at the family
home at Cameron, aged three months
and 16 days.

All is dark within onr dwelling, lonely are our

Another little lamb has gone to dwell with him

And so he bent with loving smile aud clasped

Call not back the dear departed, anchored safe

On the border land we left him, soon to meet

Far beyond this world of changes, far beyond
this world of care.
We shall find our missing loved one, in our
Father's mansion lair."
MRS. JOSEPHINE BCBUR, wife of our
former townsman, Mr. Edward Bubur,
died at Buffalo, where the family have
resided for several years, at the Gen
eral Hospital last Thursday, following
an operation. The funeral was held
on Sunday afternoon and interment
was made at Buffalo. Mesdames B. L.
Spence and Jason Loucks, cousins of
Mr. Bubur, attended the funeral, re
turning to Emporium on Tuesday.
Individuality and Feeding in Milk
By individuality ia meant all those
inherited or inborn peculiarities which
distinguish the cow as a milk producer
from other cows including both breed
and individual differences. These
qualities fix the capacity of the animal
regarded as a milk producing machine.
They set the limit to the amount of
milk she can be made to produce, and
practically determine its quality also.
It is quite commonly believed that
the composition of milk, more particu
larly the percentage of fat, may be
materially altered by feeding. A large
number of careful experiments, how
ever, ha\> to show any parf'-ul
arlv important effect of food on the
of milk. Heavy feeding,
especially with feeds rich ill protein,
tends to make the milk a little less
watery, antl thus to increase slightly
the percentage of fat, and of the other
ingredients as well. Iu a few cases,
too, a special but rather slight effect
on the fa» contents of the milk has been
observed. Practically, however, the
tliffereuees which can be produced ill
the composition of milk by changes in
the feed are too small to he of any
economic significance. The amount
of milk produced by a herd can be af
fected within wide limits by the feed
ing, but a permanent change in ita
composition can only he brought about
by a change in the make up of the
: herd, either by purchase or by breetl
| ing and selection.
B» the cow ever ao good, ahe cannot
produce milk unleaa supplied with auf
iicient and auitable food aud given
proper care. On scant lend and with
had handling, ahe will give little milk
| whatever the amount which ahe might
' produce In other worda, while iu-
I iiividtialily liiea the capacit" of the
i cow, the amount of milk which ahe
' actually duea give depends, within thla
lllmlt, oil her feeding and o ire. Froiu

Real Estate Transfer.
According to the St. Marys Gazette,
there has been placed on record in the
Recorder's office P "• Ridgway a deed
transfering a tra.-t of timber land of
about 4000 acres from theGoodyearLum
ber Company to the Kaul and H.dl
Lumber Company. The new tract is
situated near their present operations
at Trout Run. The Company will ex
tend their railroad into the new prop
erty and all the timber, which con
sistß of both hard and soft wood will be
cut and brought to St. Marys for man

much for our neighboring city and it
will extend the lumber operations for
this Company for ar least ten years.
