ground, but neither did so.
Different men have different ways
of putting things. For instance, a
crowd of men were standing around
another who had an nnusnallv large
stomach, the other day, and the
Justice of the Peace gently reminded
him that he ''looked like a poisoned
pup," the editor suggested that he hurry
home and go to bed, and the minister
advised him to mend his ways, while
the lawyer gracefully referred to his
extended stomach as being a physical

doesn't learn Thoughts of having to
put up with that kind of cooking until
death steps in should make the return

has no other reason for complaint than
that his wife's meals don't suit him.

The Unite I States Supreme court has
decided the joint Traffic association
railway case in favor of the United
States and against the railroads. The
case is considered one of the most iiu
fiortant that has ever come before the
Supreme court,not only to the railroads
but to the general public, and because
of the vast railway properties represent
ed by the traffic association.
The association was formed on No
vember 19, 1895, by 31 railways, re
presenting the great trunk lines and
their network of branches The pur
pose of the association as stated in the
articles of agreement was to establish
and maintain reasonable and just rates,
fares, rules and regulations on state and
interstate traffic " A similar associa
tion on a smaller scale was established
among southwestern roads, known as
the Trans-Missouri association.
These associations wore soon attacked
in the courts on the ground that the\
were in violation fit the Sherman anti
trust law and also of the interstate com
merce law.
The hearing in the case of Geo. Rei
ber versus the P B L E. R R- com
panv for land taken near the transfer
station developed some remarkable dit
ferances of opinion.
The railroad use* about three acres of
the old Reiber pla<v and the three Rei
ber boys testified that they were dam
ages from $35,000 to $37,000 and two
witnesses for th-'-.a Messers Hartman
and McKee put it at S3O.<X)O to $3.1,000.
which would make the land taken be
valued at SIO,OOO to $12,000 an acre.
One of the witnemea for tbe R R Go
thought that *2,O(H) would be very lib
eral damages, another put it at $2,100
John C. Graham went into details and
estimated that the 8 acres of the old
placed inside the borough could l>e cut
up into 100 lots which, in the course of
time, would all sell at SSOO per lot or
$20,000 in all that the Railroad used 12
of these lots or $2.100 worth; to which
he added S4OO for moving tbe house
s'2oo for a new wall. SSOO for sliding
ground and SSOO more for a new road
making $4,000 in all, and the viewers
awarded $1,009 09 to his estimate and
made it 5.009.69.
The viewers in the case were S. M
Seaton. G. D Swain Alphonwo Krause

The Goo«l Will Hose Co.
In October 1378. the Good Will Hose
Company, volunteer, of Butler was
organized- Tuesday evening twenty
years had rolled by and the Company
celebrated the occasion in a fitting
minner The Company appeared in
uniform at the Hose house oa Jefferson
street and at eight o'clock, headed by
the Germania band marched to the
Park Theatre to hold an open meeting.
A few hundred of the Company s friends
were preeent. but not half of what
should have been there. The fire boys
must not take the number in attendance
is indicative of the whole esteem in
which they are held by the people of
Bntler. The Town Council attended
and occupied front seats.
After an overture by the band the
rnrfain rose and discovered a stage
decorated by "Old Glory, the
biMiner and colors of the Hose Co., and
specially by the handsome, well nni
formed fireman.
President Walt. Ziegler brought the
m>eting to order and Secretary C Cron
env->-tt called the role to which eight
retired and thirtv-six active members
re-i}>onded. G. Wilson Miller then in
troduced Judge Greer, who told of the
iisefullnew and self and the
.food done by the Butler Fire Depart
nient. Lev Esq . under the
subject of "Volunteer vs. Paid Depart
ment" paid some high compliments to
onr firemen. The moat interesting
event at the Theatre was the reading of
a history of the Good Wills by Secre
tary Carl Cronenwett. He told how
they were organized, how they respond
ed to their first fire, that which destroy
ed the "Union block'' in November. '7B,
how hose had arrived but had not yet
been issued by the Town Council, and
how they broke into Campbell's hard
ware store, secured the hose and put it
in use. In twenty years the Co lias re
sponded to 206 alarms and has often
worked all day or all night at one fire
Neirly all the Co s charter members

their ranks but twice, John Orr dying

and their tpiests. the speakers of the
evening. Council, the Germania and

unexcelled "in variety, preparation and

The State 8. S. Convention.
The iHth annual convention of the
Pennsylvania State Sabbath-School
Association held in the first M E.
Church at Johnstown. Pa., Oct. 18-30
was a decided success from even- point
of view In this brief article an at
tempt to describe it would prove futile.
Over two hundred delegates from over
the State with a number who attended
the World's S. S. Convention in Lon
don last summer, and visitors from re
mote parts ot the Union and the efficient
field workers present at once proved
snfficent material to generate enthusi
asm in the cau.se sufficient not only for
the convention but also for each visitor
to carry home with him and thus be a
powerful disseminator of fundimental
church work
The delegates were met by Commit
te«s at the depots and escorted to the
Sunday school room of the first M. E.
church where they registered and after
ward had places of entertainment
assigned t-> which th»y were escorted
by voung ladies and introduced to
their hosts. The homes prepared for
entertaining delegates were not all
The address of welcome was deliver
ed by Prof. J. M. Berkey, city superin
tendent of schools and Supt. of the first
Lutheran Sunday school of Johnstown.
We give a few extracts from his ad
dress .
"We esteem your coming an honor
to our people, your entertainment our
privilege, and your mission our mutual
"This valley, known to the world
only in its fateful history, is to-day the
scene of great industrial activity; the
home of forty thousand busy and pros
perous people. The smoke of many fur
naces, and the hum and rattleof machin
ery and the rush and worry of business
all combined to monopolize our mental
and physical energies. Bait we are
never so busy. I trust, that we shall not
be able to find time to entertain a State
Sunday School Convention in the mid
dle of the week.'' "Probably no class
of representatives can embody higher
interests in church work and more vi
tal forces in Christian cultnre than an
association of Sunday School workers
Surely no class of people can have more
sacred trusts, a higher mission, or
grander possibilities than lie in the
pathway of those who work in and for
the Sunday school."
' It is a matter of history, read and
known of all men. that only since the
Sunday schools have been universally
established has the church made rapid
strides in Christian civilization.
Only in the last centnry has the mis
sionary of the Cross found permanent
foothold upon heathen soil, and loni*
ago has he learned that Christian teach
ing and living must begin with the
boys and girls. '
The Indians of the West character
ized Phil Sheridan as "that ohtinky
fellow who means business " This no
] donbt was the opinion of those who saw
and heard Hon. John Wanarnaker when
he delivered his annnal address as pres
ident of the association. Kain was fall
ing in torrents, yet 1200 people were
packed in the auditorium of the M. E
church and an overflow meeting was
held in the chapel of the churoh. H. J
Heinz of Pittsburg presided of the
main meeting and ic fitting words
introduced Mr Wanamaka*. The
speaker reviewed the work of the year
and the future work, through which he
carried the figure of a railroad, which
was suggested to him at the car win
dow, He referred to the editor of the
"Ladies Home Journal", and said he
acknowledged the article was unjust
which he published last winter in
which he attacked the Snnday school
He said we become less sentimental and
more practical as we grow older.
In touching on the late conflict he
said: That was a sail night for Spain,
when the battleship Maine shaped it
self into a great coffin. The spirit of
Valley Forge wasieyived;a new pat
riotism was born. In the southern
waters were those who left the plow in
the furrow; ledgers were closed; idle
men of culture and wealth with soft
hands-no hardships too great; splenoid
young fellows from Yale. Harvard, etc.
Volunteers filled with enthusiasm to
free Cuba.
All honor to Dewey. Hobson and
thousands of un kissed heroes and
thanks to God for Manila. MoroCastle.
Santiago and Ponce, 1 sound the bugle
to this new patriotism and eall for
volunteers in a war far more wider, far
more serious—a war against bossism
and corruption, for good citizenship, I
call tor a show of patriotism --a chris
tian patriotism." Mr. C. D. Meigs, the
energetic State Sec'y. of Indiana, made
addresses on 'Why am 1 in the Sunday
School work?" and The Front Line
Sunday school".
Mr. Meigs is editor of "The Awaken
er" a live monthly Sunday School jour
nal published at Indianapolis, and has
an international reputation as a speaker
at conventions; wit and humor border
ing on ridicule are his national weapons.
He is the life of a convention. Mr. Is
rael P. Black Sec'y of the International
Union of Primary S. S. Teachers of

Superintendent. Mrs. J W Bamee
who attended 345 conventions and
traveled 25,000 miles the last year with ;
many others offered their tributes and j
said with Froeble. "Come let us live for
the children".
The convention while in session ex
changed greetings with the following
assemblies: Baptist Anniversary at
Harrisburg, Maine State S. S, conven
tion, Rhode Island State S S. conven
tion and the Southern California S. S
convention, all in session. The Snnday
school parade was a new feature and
proved a success; abont 4.5<t0 workers
were in line children from four years
to seventy five made a gieat impression
on the immense crowd on the side
walks. The Methodist. Presbyterian
and Lutheran chnrches were filled with
children after the parade, and addresses
were made by prominent speakers.
J. Wilbur Chapman D D. of Bethany
church Phil a. gave several of his excel
lent bible readings in which great
Spiritual power was manifested; he also
spoke on "Reeping in the Sunday
; School".
The Gen. Sw Charles Roads D D.
gave a superb address on "State Nor
mal work". A class of nine from A 1
1 tocma were presented with diplomas
there will be two handred graduates in
[ the State this year. The work has in
creased so rapidly that Rev. H. A
Bomberger of Phila has been secured
to assist Dr. Roads this year.

The barn of Quinn Redick in Parker
twp, with all the contents was destroy
ed by fire last Saturday night
The barn of John Walters in Buffalo
twp. was destroyed by fire, with all its
contents a few nights ago. Xc insur
a nee.
The Murtlaiul M. E. church, east of
Millerstown was again destroyed by
fire one night last week, and the second
person at the fire discovered that two
buckets of oil had been placed in the
church. An effort will be made to dis
i coyer the incendiary.
At 10:15 last Thursday night fire was
discovered in T H. Morrison's bake
house, a two story frame in the rear of
his store room on S Main St. The fire
men responded promptly, confined the
flames to the second story and roof and
iin half an hour had the fire out.
"Spontaneous combustion." is the cause
! assigned. There was a fine pressure
j of water on. one stream was thrown on
the roof of the three story Campbell
building, next door north of the fire.
The building was part of the Hotel
I Arlington property owned by Capt Lie
bold. The loss on it probably $250, is
covered by insurance. Mr. Morrison's
loss about S3OO. is partly covered by in
> snrance. The bake oven was not in
| jured and was ready for use the next
day Adam Shimmel, the baker lost
about £SO in personal effects.
Early yesterday morning (between 4
and 5 o'clock) the U. P. church building
in Fairview borough was discovered to
be bnrning. The alarm was given and
the whole town turned out, but by that
time the whole interior and the roof
were in flames and as the town has no
water pressure nothing could be done.
An hour or two more and nothing re
mained but the brick walls The build
ing was one of the largest and best
church buildings in the county. It was
built during Rev. McFarland's admin
istration, in 1881!, and cost $16,000. It
was heated by a heater in the basement,
in which gas was burned, and it is sup
posed that the regular got out of order
and caused the heater to become over,
heated. There was no insurance, and
it is said that the Insurance Companies
refused the risk on account of gas be
ing allowed to burn in it continually.
Rev. Sheirard is pastor at present.
