READING MATTER ON EVERY PAGE
TEACHERS' INSTITUTE.—The attendance
upon the Teachers' Institute, last week, was
much more numerous than heretofore and the
citizens of Huntingdon appear to have taken
much more interest than previously. It is
very strange that so little interest is general
ly felt, by the public at large, in these meet
ings, but we are happy to know that this
meeting has been better patronized than here
tofore. The generality of people come to the
conclusion that if they pay their taxes prompt.
ly when called upon, they have discharged
their duty to the System, and the Directors
should employ teachers and run the schools
without any further attention from them, and
that all they have a right to do in the prem
ises is to criticise what is done by those in au
thority. They frequently think that qualified
teachers ought to be employed for a mere
song, the schools ought to be kept open six
days in the week and eight or ten hours per
day to make teachers earn their money. We
frequently hear just such views expressed by
people who ought to know better, and who
ought to make it their business to understand
the interests of both teacher and pupil and lend
them all the aid in their power. Who are your
school teachers They are your own or your
neighbors' children, andof necessity they must
be. There are a large number of schools to be
filled; they are only kept open four months in
the year at a miserly salary of thirty or forty
dollars per month; of course professional teach
ers, who have spent several thousand dollars
in time and money to qualify themselves, can
not be employel, only four months in the year,
at such wages. It would be folly to suppose
anything of the kind; then the only alternative
is to convert the young men and young ladies
at hand into teachers. They of necessity can
not be perfect and they do not claim to to be.
You know it and yet you desire your children
educated at the least possible expense by
them. You accept them from necessity and
you want the most out of them you can get
for the money. Now, how is it to be done ?
Is it by putting an inexperienced young man,
without the requisite qualifications, into
your school and keeping him there from Mon
day morning until Saturday evening hammer
ing away without system upon your children,
taking days to impart what an accomplished
teacher would impart in a few hours ? Would
it not be better to send him a week, paying
him for his time, and, yes, you paying his
boarding while there, to one of these meet
ings to learn how to impart knowledge?
Would It not be a good investment, if you did
so, if he learned to impart knowledge to your
children in a week that otherwise would have
taken a month 2 Moat a.eeurodll it wyald._
Then you should not only attend these meet
ings, which are generally conducted gratuit
ously by qualified teachers for the benefit
of their less fortunate brethren, but you
should contribute liberally as a paying invest
ment. You don't want your children to be
block heads, far from it, and professional
teachers are not to be had for the money yoc
are willing to pay, then it is a fair business
tranaction to get the most for your money,
and if you can double the amount of benefit
received by adding a few additional pennies
to what you have already paid, it would be
"penny wise and pound foolish" not to do it.
We were only present, owing to the heavy
pressure attending the getting up of the n t-
CAL, on Wednesday evening, and we only
heard the readings of Prof. Shoemaker, which '
was meant to entertain the audience and not
so much for instruction. Yet it bore its les
son. We were sorry that we were unable to
attend the whole proceedings, but if we can
get back to this subject in the future, we will
try and say some things that will waken up
old fogies and put some additional vim into
THE HUNTINGDON AND BROAD TOP
RAILROAD.—The completion of the Pittsburgh
and Connellsville and the Bedford and Bridge
port Railroads will make a continuous line of
road from Huntingdon, via Pittsburg, or via
Cumberland, by the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road, to Washington, or Wheeling and Cin
cinnati. Nor is this all. By the connections
which we have just mentioned, all West Vir
ginia, the Southern portion of the three great
States lying on the north bank of the Ohio
river, and Kentucky will find the most direct
outlet to New York by this route. It must
appear at a glance that the Huntingdon and
Broad Top Railroad is assuming a very impor
tant position in comparason with the position
it has heretofore occupied. In other words
Huntingdon is about to become the terminus
of the Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railroad,
through its connections, in Pennsylvania. Do
the people of Huntingdon realize this ?
Already we hear the mutterings of those
interested intimating that a rival road will be
built from a point at or near Spruce Creek,
where it is supposed the Railroad from Lewis
burg will tap the Pennsylvania Central, by
way Williamsburg, up the Great or Morrison's
Cove to Mt. Dallas and Bedford, and by this
means divert the passenger travel from the
Broad Top. Surveys, we have been informed,
have already been made of this route and a
proposition has been made to the Broad Top
Company for a change of location of part of
the old Bedford road from Piper's Run to ac
commodate parties running a road from Hol
lidaysburg, via Martinsburg, to the Old Lem
nos Works in Hopewell township, Bedford
county. If this arrangement should be made,
and the Hollidaysburg road built, then to
build a continuous line of road from Spruce
Creek to Bedford would only be necessary to
build the gap between Martinsburg and Spruce
Creek, a distance not exceeding fifteen or
This project, if carried out, must prove very
dainaging to Huntingdon. Are the people of
Huntingdon, then, willing to stand by and see
the Broad Top road reduced to a mere coal
and ore road? Especially since there appears
to be without a rival road, such a bright pros
pect before it? You will remember that the
Broad Top road has been worth ten
dollars to you in the aggregate to every
one that the Central has, because the
latter merely passes through without any
special advantage save the accommodation in
delivering and shipping freight, the transport
ing of passengers and the keeping up of a sta
tion or two, while the other has developed
your ore and coal lands, and raised the prices
from a mere song to handsome figures, and
beyond this, your merchants and shop keepers
have, for yeais, supplied almost exclusively
the region developed by it, and you have
grown rich off of Broad Top. It is your duty,
therefore, to stand by this enterprise which has
done so much for you, and for which you, we
fear, have done very little in return. There
is not a particle of doubt that it would be
better for Huntingdon, if the Pensylvania
Central controlled the Broad Top Railroad up
as far as Bedford, and this would be entirely
satisfactory to the citizens of Bedford, but be
this as it may, the people of Huntingdon must
resist a rival road, and if this cannot be suc
cessfully done, then the Broad Top road, from
Coffee Run south, must be re-located, or the
great bug bear, the trestles, filled up.
WE met an enterprising mechanic the
other day who informed us that he had built
the foundations for eighteen houses, besides
building two entire brick residences in West
Huntingdon, since harvest. It is said that
seventy new buildings have been erected, be
sides extensions, additions, Stc., in the last
year. This looks like business.
WHAT IS SAID ABOUT ADVERTISING.—
There is no truer saying than that "sweet are
the uses of adver—tisements.
Blessed are they who do not advertise, for
they shall rarely be troubled with customers.
The New York Post says; “Advertising is
the financial railway to success. It is an art
possessed by few; but these few are the mer
chant princes of to-day."
An exchange says: "Trying to do business
without advertiseing is like winking through
a pair of green goggles—you may know that
you are doing it, but nobody else does."
And another: "You might as well attempt
to shampoos the head of an elephant with a
thimblefull of soapsuds as to attempt to do
business and ignore printers' ink." That's
The editor of the Massillon American means
business. This is what he says : "Patronize
those who patronize you is our motto. We
shall deal and send our friends to deal only
with merchants and business men who adver
tise. We may be compelled to buy, some
times, from those who do not patronize us,
but only when we can't do otherwise."
And yet another says : "A man who was
too mean to advertise land he wanted to sell
put a written notice in one of the hotels the
other day. A man who was inquiring for a
small farm was referred to the written notice:
can't buy land at a fair price of any man
who does his advertising in that way. He'd
steal the fence, the pump handle, and the barn
doors, before he gave up possession.' "
The Chicago Tribune asks and gets $22,662
a column per year for advertising. The busi
ness men of that city do not hesitate to pay
that price, for the reason that every dollar
thus judiciously invested will bring an income
of at least five dollars. Those who advertise
most are the most successful in business.

THE BEDFORD AND BRIDoEFORT RAIL
ROAD.—The contractors on this road are push
ing the gradings as rapidly as can be expec
ted at this season of the year. Messrs. Lowry,
Williams & Co., have a large force of hands
employed on the eastern er d, on the opposite
side of the river from Mt. Dallas, and expect
to have their five miles graded and ready for
the ties by the Ist of July next. Mr. Camp
bell is also driving up the balance of the 7}
miles, and will be ready for the ties by the
same time, so that, if there is no delay occa
sioned by the interminable litigation in which
the whole subject is involved, the locomotive
will run through from Huntingdon to Bedford
by the 20th of July or the Ist of August next.
By that time, if not before, the western end
from Bedford to Bridgeport will be completed
and the Huntingdon people will have a choice
of routes to Pittsburgh and the great west.

ROWDYISM.—The holidays zenerally
bring with them a disposition to break over
the bounds of soberness among a class of men
who are disposed to indulge too freely when
an opportunity presents itself, and Huntingdon
appears not to be entirely free from the evil
tendency of this disposition. On Tuesday
night, the 27th ult., a number who will be dis
pleased at being called rowdies, behaved very
badly. They went about the town in squads,
swearing and fighting like so many savages.

RETROSPECTIVE.—A friend sends us
the following reflections :
"Once again, perhaps for you and I the last
time, we are upon the close or beginning of
another year. What are the thoughts that
come upon us at this holy hour? Are they
such as call us to think upon ourselves? Do
we think to review the past year? Suppose
we could have had a view on the first day of
last year of all the joys, all the sorrows, all the
successesoill the reverses, all the happy meet
ings, all the sad partings ; would we have done
just as we did do ? Would we have acted just
as we did act? Would we have been the
friends we are to-day? Nay, I cannot believe
it. Are not some of the friends - of last year not
our friends to-day? and are not some of our
enemies then our true and lasting friends to
day? Why this change? Are we to blame?
are we to praise ? Now let us just for a mo
memt look over the past year. There, I let
drop an idle word—'twas but a word—and yet
it severed two loving hearts. There, I gave
credence to a slander. I said, I believed it,
and on my word, a dozen of persons said the
same. There, my lips uttered a falsehood,and
my soul received a stain. There, I betrayed
the secret counsels of a friend. There, I blas
phemed the name of my Maker. We cannot
do less, we cannot do more, than raise our eyes
to Heaven and exclaim—God forgive I"
