M. A. CARRINGER,
Ik you are io favor of good roada say ao
by your vote next Tuesday.
THKPittaburgb Chamber of Commerce,
one of the mnal Influential organizations
in the aiate, passed resolutions Monday
night strongly endorsing the good roada
Rkmkmbkr, if tbe good roada propo
sition Is voted down now it will be about
nine years before tbe question can again
be submitted to a vote. A whole lot of
people now living may not be bere to
bother about good or bad roada then.
Makk a cross (x) in the square opposite
the word "yes" in voting for tbe good
roads amendment, wblcb la the first or
No. 1, on your ballot. It l taken, as
matter oi oourae, that every good ciliaen
wants the gocd roads, and now Is tbe
time to get them. Get out of tbe mud.
Likk all other questions there ere two
aides to the good roads proposition. One
la, to carry tbe amendment and secure
tbe best rosds possible for absolutely no
oost to any individual taxpayers. Tbe
otber aide is, to defeat the amendment,
keep tbe mud roada you now have, and
go down into your pockets and dig up
the cash to keep them lu merely paasable
condition lor about eight months in tbe
year. Take your choice.
A Votk for M. A. Carringer is vote to
retain a careful, painstaking and efficient
man In the District Attorneys office. One
who believes in keeping expensea down
to a minimum, and while maintaining
the peace, dignity and good order of tbe
county, be will still be a terror to evil
doers. Mr. Carringer baa faithfully
served the people of bia county through
one term and baa done an well that be
auie deserves another, and II tbe votera
believe in helping themselves to tbe best
tbai'a to be bad he'll be elected by arous
Don't Fail to Vote "Yes" on Amend
ment No. 1.
The Adams Express company baa of
fices and does business at over twtuty
five different points in tbia county.
At a number of tbem it cleara more
money each year than any half dozen of
tbe best farmers in tbe county doe.
At all of tbem it baa a clear profit on
every dollar's wortb of business it does.
It has horses and wagons, and possibly
other property, but not a cent's worth of
ita property is represented on any tax
duplicate in tbe county.
Not a penny of tax for either road,
school, poor or otber local purposes does
it pay or baa it ever paid.
If an assessor make a mistake and
values its horse or wagon as he does that
of tbe farmer or drayman, application ia
at once made to bave it stricken off the
assessment on tbe ground that tbia
property goea to make up tbe valueaof ita
capital stock that cannot be taxed for local
purposes. And off it cornea, and you
con't find the name of the Adams Express
company on any tax duplicate in Centre
county, or in tbe State of Pennsylvsnia.
And it'a tbe same with tbe Pennsyl
vania i ill road, tbe Telephone companies,
the El. clric Light concerns or any otber
corporations whose wealth is represented
by "capital stock."
And yet when proposition ia before
tbe people to ao amend tbe Constitution
that these corporations can be required to
help build our roads tbere are tarmera
and others, who are taxed on every dol
lar's wortb of property they possess, who
refuse to vote for such amendment, and
by such refusal, assist in exonerating
these corporations from the payment of
local taxes of any kind.
Mr. Voter, are you one of these?
Don't you think that these corporations
ought to be taxed io aome way that will
help lessen tbe burden that ia being im
posed upon you?
If you do make a cross (X) io tbesquare
opposite the word "Yfs" at amendment
No. 1, on tbe ballot that you will vote on
election day. Belefonte Watchman.
Tbe same is true in a greater or leaser
degree In every county In tbia state, In
cluding our own county of Forest. Tbink

The Return of Chadman.
I barejuat read io the Rkpttblicah
that tbe game aeaaon la open for ruffed
grouse and I sure am homesick lo go up
back of Judge Irwin's place and bag one

Tbe ascent of tbe bill I know would do
me good and so would tbe feaat on the
baked bird whether bot or cold. We bave
no hills or tnountaina bere to ollmb, and
even the making of a living in tbe pro
fessions or the vocations la not op-htll
work. Soyouaeewe get little exercise
and In fact do not want very much.
Energy, induatry, even ambition deserts
one In tbe semi-tropics, and lassitude and
fatigue follow alight exerciae or labor.
But no one who baa not pent a year or
so In this climate can believe what lux
ury there ia Id these cool, clear, trans
cendent nights, and these never falling
balmy, sunshiny days. After October
cornea tbere la no end to either of them
until June, and that monlb of tbe past
summer was one of continuous aun by
day and brilliant stars sod moon fclow by
night. Ordinarily, heavy showers begin
early in June and continue through July,
August, and well into September, but the
past season baa been a marked exception
to tbe rule. Very little rain fell, and
while the people to the north were suffer

lovely, breezy daya and cool, placid
The citrua crop ia little below the
average in tbia Immediate vicinity, but
farther up Peace river, and along tbe

thousaoda of boxes of tine oranges and
grapefruit will be shipped to tbe markets
of tbe big cities. Tbe truokers and farm
ers are now putting In tbeir aeed and
setting out their planta, while tbe farmera
of "Little Forest" are putting in tbelr
coal and sitting behind tbeir kitchen
stovea. In the latter part of January our
farmera will be shoveling their potatoes,
beets, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, and
ao forth into crates snd nailing and mark
ing them forabipment, while youra will
be ahoveling anow and Inquiring for

long for a sniff of frosty air and a glimpse
of a grotesque anow man. It la 88 tbia

and for tbe next six months we shall

with tbe possible exception, perbapa, that
in February tbere may be a few nlgbta

Ponta Gorda bas improved very much

In connection therewith. I am glad to
see so many people moving toward thla

be aa far as any one got, but it ia different
now, Hundreda of people of very
moderate meana are purchasing lots and
building Inexpensive bouses bere. Tbey
use them io tbe winter and rent them
during tbelr absence io tbe summer. It
is conceded by even selfish St. Petersburg
that Punta Gorda and tbe small towna
