Childhood passes into youth iu the twink
ling of an eye. A little laughter, an hour'*
play with a few toy* and the time arrives
wnen childish things must be put away.
Yoctb, exuberant youth, shortly sobers
into manhood. A dream or two, a (ew
castles in the air, a fleeting vision of di
vine possibilities, then tbe shoulders broad
en to bear heavier burdens, and the heart
recognizes the graver responsibilities ot
life. Manhood changes to old age like a
flash of lightning in a summer clond. Some
hard words, some short years of earnest
toil, some days of bitter disappointment,
some nights of weary weeping, and then
the nerves grow dull, the sight becomes
dim, the snows of winter are scattered
over the bead, the hopes of earlier days
have either ripened or withered. The sun

needful to the progress ot society, but not
more so than little men and women who

the courage of the common soldiers whose

Bilks and display rags. Don't use pins
where stitches wonld do. Don't sacrifice
neatness to artistic effect. Don't wear a
smart hat and burst shoes. Don't wear
striped material if you aro tall. Don't
spoil the gown for the yard of stuff. Don't,
if you are September, dress as May. Don't

—The survey of the route to Millerstown
from the divide has been fini-hed by Engi
neer Richard Kowe aud in all probability
will be tbc one se'ected, as it is the short
er of the two, and despite tbe fact that a
small tunnel will have to be built it can be
put through, it is believed, at least $150,-
000 cheaper than the first line rnn. A
mile of trestle after tbe divide or summit
>s passed and the valley reached will be re
quired on the first survey, while by going
via. Millerstown this is not needed and a
better and cheaper line maintained. As
previously stated the contractors will bid
on both lines, bnt it is thought with reas
onable certainty that the last will be se
-1 lected. We hope snch will be the case for

viz. the P. <1 W. and S. <1 A., in the short
distance of 18 miles, giving extra advan
tages to our people and all concerned. We
paid a visit to the office of tbe Company at
Brady's Bern.' yesterday and found Engi
neers liagertv, Hammond and Rowe busi
ly engaged getting the profiles ready for
the bids of tbe contiactors. It is an inter
esting piece of work and every line on it
must be to a hairsbreadth of correctness.
They have tbe route from the river at this
place to the Summit about finished and it
conld be ready for the contractors in a day
or so. General Manager Isaac Freeze ex
pects that work on preparing the profiles
will be completed in a week or so. When
the contract is awarded work will be com
menced at once, he assures us, and pushed
forward rapidly through the winter.—East

Early Fall
Never in the history of this country
was clothing so cheap as now. The hard
times ot the past year were the means
ot bringing the cost of raw wool down
to a level with raw cotton. Labor suf
fered correspondingly. The manufac
turers were anxious to unload their big
stocks 011 hand, and consequently we
had opportunities enough to buv our fall
stock at our own prices. We bought
lots ot them and bought them cheap.
We intend to sell lots of them and sell
them cheap. Everything is quoted at
astonishingly low prices. Call on us
when in town.
