Wn are allll fixing to get ready to I
gin to do anmxtli'nK about fluerta.
Col nnYAif li not the only man at the
nation' capital who delight to mount
the platform. The chief executive la fan!
acquiring the public reading bat It.
Thk new army enllMinent law pre
aurlhea a term of seven yeara. It (a be
lieved by the department that thl will
amply oover the content with Mexico,
AeooRDlKH to a YVanbington oorrea
pondent, not one man In 10,000 under-
atanda the currency problem. Hut one
aeldom meeta a man wbodoea not know
all about It.
Thk high coat of living la sure taking
tumble. A telegram from WaMiington
ad vlsea that egga have dropped 10 centa
within a week, and are now down to four
and nne-alxtli centa apiece, or 50 centa for
12. Now you aee what free trade In ben
fruit doe for ua poor people.
Okn, Villa, having risen In a few
mouiha from an outlawed bandit to the
leading figure of the oonalitutiouaiiat
caime, would make an Ideal president of
Mexico, one who could be officially reo
ounized aa an exemplar of law and order
and ooiiHtitulional procedure, by tbe
How will Farmer Bryan explain to
hie puzzled fellow-agrlculturiata In Ne
braska ibe prominence of Mrs. Bryan In
tbe egg boycott In Washington T To be
sure, a Maryland or Virginia egg is Dill
Nebraska egg, to which Mr. Bryan pre
sumably would never be disloyal, but
Isnners sre beginning to learn that "eggs
Is eggs," and that the law of supply and
demand ran not be trilled wltb locally
without Mtfectiug Ibe whole country.
Pennsylvania, Ohio. Illinois, and
West Virginia are credited with over
40 per cent, of the total mineral produc
tion of Ibe United Statea. Pennsylvania
outranks all other atatea, producing
nearly 'St per cent, of Ibe total, West Vir
ginia cornea second, Illinois third, and
Ohio fourth. California, with no stand
ins as a producer of pig Iron, iron ore, or
coal, stands filth In rank among tbe
siatte, owing to ita heavy production of
gold and petroleum.
Now that Congressman Palmer bat
declared that he will not bave the Demo
crats fuse with tbe Progressives on one
part of the ticket In Pennsylvania, and
tbe Bull Moose leaders bave declared that
they will not fuse wltb the rest of the
ticket, tbe war between tbe Democrats
and Progressives Is begun. The Pro
gressives bsve nothing to lote and much
to gain by deiealing the Deinocrale and
electing at least part of their own people
lootttre. Tbey can do this by uniting
with the Republicans completely as tbey
bave already done practically In the late
election, and tbey are not so stupid as to
miss tbe opportunity. The split in tbe
Republican party la passing into history,
Thk Democrats appealed to tbe country
at tbe last Presidential election on the
ground that tbey would lower, by tariff
changes and otherwise, tbe bigb cost ol
living. Will tbey appeal to tbe voters of
this state during tbe coming campaign on
tbe record tbey bave made in lowering
tbe cost of living? And if not, why noif
Tbey bave fixed the tariff, they have bad
control at Washington; where la tbe Im
provement In conditions for the average
man? If it la not in evidence then on
wiiHt ground will the Democrats make
their appeair-Franklin News. Tbe
News mustn't be too bard on tbe Demo
crats. Wait till tbey come around to
collect aome of tbe income tax. That
ought to belp in bringing something
down. Maledictions, for Instance.
Thr collector of Internal revenue for
the 23.1 district of Pennsylvania, which
Includes Forest county and all ol
western Pennsylvania, Is desirous of
furnishing blank forms to all Individuals
who are required, under tbe oew federal
Income tax law, to make a return of their
income for eacb calendar year. For tbe
year eudlng December 31, 1913, the return
must be filed on or before March 1, MM.
All persona whose net income from all
sources for the year Is $3,000 or more, Ir
respective of certain exemptions allowed
by law, are required to make return.
On this return, exemptlona to eacb In
dividual, can be noted. Tbe collector of
this distriot, with bis force of deputies,
will make every effort to supply blanks
to all those who require tbem. However,
failure on tbe part of any one to receive
blank will not excuse that one from the
penalties provided for neglecting to make
return. It la not incumbent on tbe part
of the revenue department to aee that
every one ia supplied witb a blank, but it
Is incumbent on tbe part of tbe Individual
to see that he receives a blank. In other
words, tbe law works only one way, and
that Is to place tbe burdon upon tbe tax
payer. Ho that, if your net Income ia
13,000 or more you're expected to settle,
and when all bave done so, it Is expected
that tbe high cost of living will take a
tumble, and our foreign cousins will reap
the benefit of the reduction in the tariff.
-Dr. R. A. Walker, one of Clarion
county'e prominent physicians, died very
suddenly on Ibe 2Gih ult , while at the
home of a palleul whom be had gone to
attend. He was In the OOlh year of bis
age, and be bore the distinction of being
the lirat Republican ever eleoted to tbe
legislature from Clarion county, having
served In the seasion of 1005. Ills home
was at West Monterey, where be bsd
practiced his profession for 87 yaara.

of New York, that be baa forever aban

Aaide from Col. Theodore Roosevelt
Mr. Pendergast bad practically all to do
wltb tbe organization of tbe Progressive
parly, Mr. Prendergaat nominated Col
Roosevelt for the Presidency In tbe bolt
ing convention at Chicago. Ilia waa the
political mind tbat supplied the Inspire

Mr. Prengergaat, taking alarm at con
ditlnna In this country Inalsta that patro
tlam demanda less of Armageddon and
more concern for tbe best Intereata of the
country, lie finds, be aaya, tbat too
many of the bull moose rs believe that
their whole duty ia to war upon the Re
publican party, and In conclusion he In
siMs ibat the continued war upon tbe Re

and destroyed business confidence, and
be therefore returns to tbe Republican
party aa a patrlotlo duty.

Injudicious Christmas giving results Id
gloom and not gladnena. To exchange
Christmas presents wilb Ibe Idea In mind
of giving something as valuable aa you
receive, Is not giving at all, but Is merely
Ilia vanity, and not geoeroslty, lbs
prompts people to give beyond their
means. More heartaches and unchari
table thoughts are provoked by efforts to
splurge In making Christmas presents
Iban by ignoring Christmas altogether.
To hamper yourself with debt or to de
prive your sell of necessities for the sake
of gratifying your desire to be regarded
as generous, la foolish.
To make Christmas giving and recelv
log matter of barter, ia to take all the
sentiment out ol It.
Tbe sensible thing to do is to give to
your frleuda and relations some loving
memento, without thought of Ita Intrin
slo value, and to endeavor to gladen the
hearts of some poor children of your ao
quaintanoe by playing Mania Clause to
Uive, to be sure, but do not go about it
in a stern, business-like way tbat will re
suit In worry and perplexity iusiesd of
Tbe wisdom cf life Is lo avoid extremes
In everything, and you can be aa Intern
perale In your Cbristmsa giving aa In
anything else. It Is the spirit tbst
prompts the giver, and not the cost of the
article given, that makes the Christmas
gill. Punxsulawney Spirit.
