Visited Old Folks.
Harry F. Jordan, of New York city,
visited his home-folka haro last Satur
day and Sunday. Harry has for five
years been general accountant for
John W. Masury & Sons, manufactur
ers of paiuts and varnishes, at their
Chicago branch, but has been trans
ferred to their main works at New
York. The PRESS was favored with a
social visit from our old friend on Sat
urday last and we enjoyed his call.
His many Cameron couuty friends
wish him well.
What of the Future ?
The signs of the times indicate a new
departure in the education of both
boys and girls. For the past two
score years or more the whole scheme
of education seems to htive been to se
cure proficiency in books and not in
things practical.
At prbsent there is a tendency to dis
credit books and give more attention
to doiiig things.
Money, as such, is being discredited
also, and an eflort made to impress the
pupil with the great and important
lact that it is only what money does,
and not what it is, that is worth con
sidering. As a means to a worthy end
money is most desirable, but as mere
money it is of no real value to either
the individual, or to the world.
A Box Social.
The Public is invited to a Box Social
at the Baptist church, Friday evening,
at eight o'clock. The guilty party is
class 2, of which Mrs. M. Ramarge is
High Mucky-Muck. All parties of the
feminine gender, will please bring a
shoe-box filled with the delicacies
which appeal to the members of the
male order. Gents, men, boys and all
others, will please bring two dimes
and one nickle which is the price .set
on the aforesaid Boxes. This is posi
tively the last notice which we shall
give of this affair. Come early and
avoid the rush.
Fishing Revised.
Bedford county fishermen were
busily engaged last Sunday in fish
ing along the Raystown Branch.
The fish were not hard to catch, as
they were floating on top of the water,
and many large strings were taken.
It seems that, in some way a large
amount of lime had gotten into the
river, which had the effect of causing
the fish to lie fiat on top of the water—
apparently dead -but it is said that
they revive as soon as the water again
becomes pure.

ment of the marriage of Miss Florence

where. The characterizing trait of the
Breed is "Knocking." Emporium has
its full quota. We expect to discuss
him from every view point, Sunday
night. Yours for a good rap at the

from such services. Therefore you
won't knock elbows with a single one

The Most Beautiful Tiling in Em
That is the most "beautiful thing in
Emporium, said a well known woman,
the other daj'as she stood in front of
the case of cut glass at store
and feasted her eyes on the beautiful
display presented. There is nothing
a good housewife prides herself on
more than the appearance of her table,
and it is surprising how much a few
pieces of really good cut glass will
brighten up a table, enhancing the ap
pearance of the linen, silver and china.

A Beautiful Tribute.
Hon. John McDonald Honored by
Railroad Men and Fellow
Drift toood Gazette.
' One of the prettiest tributes that
could be paid to any man wan tender
ed to Hon. John McDonald, super
visor of the Eigth division of the P. R.
R., on Tuesday evening, when more
than eighty persons assembled in the
Ladies' Aid Society hall to honor our
distinguished townsman. Thisgather
: ing was for a two-fold purpose, to cele
brate the seventieth anniversary of the
1 honorable gentleman's birth, and to
I mark his retirement from the service
jof the Pennsylvania Railroad Com-
I pany. The affair was arranged by
! Assistant Supervisor C. L. P. Russel,
j Clerk Daniel Donahue and the super
visor's seventeen track foremen, and
a large number of his superior officers,
railroad men and fellow townsmen were
invited to participate in the event.
A special train was run from Re
novo, arriving here at 6:25. The Drift
wood band met the guests and headed
the procession to the residence of Hon.
John McDonald, who was escorted to
the Ladies' Aid Society hall, where a
bounteous and delicious repast, pre
pared as only the ladies of that society
can prepare them, was in readiness.
The tables were arranged in the form
of a hollow square, with another table
in the centre for the chief guests, and
the room was beautifully decorated
with evergreen and tricolor bunting in
the form of a cross, at the four corners
and centre of which hung railroad
lanterns with various colored globes.
A rack was erected on which was plac
ed all the implements used by track
men in railroad construction, and this
was surmounted by a switch target.
Those seated at the central table
were Hon. John McDonald, with Presi
dent Judge Hon. Harry Alvan Hall on
his right and Division Engineer R. L.
Roe 011 his left, ex-Burgess John B.
Smith, of Renovo, Col. J. O. Brook
bank, Assistant Supervisor C. L. P.
Russel, Trainmaster Owen McCarthy
and Hon G. W. Huntley.
1 After the invocation by Colonel
Broakbank, Toastmaster Roe read a
number of letters and telegrams from
those who were unable to attend and
made a spicy and complimentary
j speech, at the conclusion of which he
iutroduced Mr. McCarthy as the first
speaker. Mr. McCatthy's address was
elaborate, covering every phase of the
i life of Mr. McDonald as a railroad man
and worthy citizen and left very little
i to be said by those who were to follow
him. However the speeches of Hon.
j (i. W. Huntley, Col. J. O. Brookbank,
Master Mechanic C. H. Potts, track
; foremen, railroad men aud citizens
were of such a tender aud praiseworthy
nature us to turu the head of a man
less solid than Mr. McDonald C. W.
Ilollingsworth, chief clerk to Stiperin
, tendent Gougblin, and representing
that gentleman, after a few praise
worthy remarks, read two letters—one
from Superintendent Coi'ghlin to Sup
ervisor John McDonald, congratulat
ing him oil his attainment to man's
alloted period, and referring to his
excellent services to the company and
to his retirement; and the reply by
Supervisor McDonald both teeming
with love rind pood fellowship and
inurKing 'he universal esteem in which
the Hon. Johu McDonald in held by
his superiors in office. Yet ill all that
was said in praise of Mr. McDouald we

Mr. McDonald was twice honored by
his fellow citizens by election to the
second highest office within their gift
and served them well as Associate
Judge of Cameron county. For fifteen
years he presided over the Driftwood
school board and rendered excellent
service. As a loyal citizen, husband,
father and neighbor, the Hon. John
McDonald has been and is a man
among men. He has played his part
in the great drama of life exceeding
ly well, and may he live many years
to enjoy the fruits of his labor and at
the end, when angel hands beckon him
home, ho may say with the psalmist,
"Yea, Lord, my cup runneth over."
Twenty-five Years Ago.
On Monday morning, November
30tli, 1885, at about two o'clock, the
Old Warner House was totally destroy
ed by tire. Yesterday was thetweny
fifth anniversary of the big Are. Mr.
Riley Warner was the proprietor at
the time and with bis family and
guests at the hotel had barely time to
escape with their lives. The fire was
caused by the explosion of a hanging
lamp in the lower hall, near the main
stairway—the explosion scattering the
oil over the oaken, oiled stairway and
causing the fire to spread rapidly
through the building and cutting off
all means of escape. The fire was dis
covered by Sheriff Smith, who occu
pied rooms in the bank building and
S. H. Storrs, sleeping in the bank.
They gave the alarm. Only a few of
the mattresses which were thrown to
the sidewalk were saved from the burn
ing buildiDg.
Pleasant Letter from J. W. Kaye.
The Presk te in receipt of a letter
from our old friend aud former town
man, J. W. Kaye, of Westboro, Wis.,
pushing tlip date of his Press, well in
to 1912, being the second farthest paid
in advance—Hon. J. W. Cochran, of
Ashland, Wis., heading the honor roll,
his Press being paid to Dec. 1913.
Would that we had more like them, in
fact it would mightily please us if
hundreds would keep within the law.
Mr. Kaye jots down a few items as
follows: "We are having nice winter
weather here at present, which is good
for the hunters. Our open season is
now on and the way the hunters are
killing game is fierce. I will not go
out this season, the family being a lit
tlo under the weather. Mr. Jos. Lin
gle captured his deer the first day of
the season. Thos. Dixon is still after
his, he saw it a great many times but
his gun shoots where the deer has
left, so he keeps up the chase. Mrs.
I.ingle is "under the weather" at pres
sent; also MacDounell's children, all
having bad colds. With regards to all
friends." Glad to hear from you, Will,
and see that you are prospering and
taking an interest in Westboro, your
adopted home.

At the close of business, Nov. 30, 1910,
One of the most successful men of America
when asked to what he attributed his success re
"I built my fortune on the dial of my watch I
seconds became pennies, minutes became dimes,
hours became dollars. I gave a money value to
every tick, and took advantage of everything
that economized time. I never procrastinate;
I never wait for other people to get ahead of me.
I keep my eyes and ears open for opportunities;
I look well into whatever seems good to me;
when my judgement approves I act promptly
and with decision. I don't know that there is
any particular rule or law of success, but I'm
pretty sure that one of the foundation principles
is "Don't lose Time." Don't lose time in open
