in October of 1800, the Spanish Gov
ernment. by a secret treaty, ceded the
whole of the province of Louisiana
back to France, which bad originally
settled both New Orleans and St. Lonis.
This became known to our Ministers
at Madrid, Paris and London, and ne
gotiations were opened with the French
government for the purchase of that
part of the province east of the Missis
sippi river, including New Orleans our

Mr. Jefferson was President at that
time and in March of 1803 he sent Mr.
Monroe over to Pane to aid Mr. Living
ston in the matter.
General Bonaparte was at that time
First Consul of France. He was abont
to engage in another war with the al
lies, of which England was one, and he
feared England's naval power— feared
she would send a fleet to New Orleans
and take possession—so our ministers
i were suddenly met with the proposition
to buy the whole province, and though
this exceeded their instructions, they
closed the bargain at eighty millions of
francs -about sixteen millions* of dol
The President immediately agreed to
this and Congress soon after ratified it.
The negotiations in Paris were com
pleted on the 30th of April, 1803, and
the papers signed on the 3d of May.
Congress ratified the proceeding in Oc
tober, and France appointed a Commis
sioner to formally receive the province
from the Spanish and transfer it to the
United States, which was done in De
cember, when the Spanish troops em
barked for Spain and the Americans en
tered New Orleans.
St. Louis, at that time (1803) was al
ready quite a town. A Jesuit mission
had been established at that point on
the river as early as 1636; and in 1764,
after the country east of the Mississippi
had been ceded to the English, as a re
sult of the French English war, some of
the French in Canpda and Illinois, es
tablished the town of St. Lonis, under
the lead of a man named Laclede, presi
dent of The Louisana Fur Company.
The St. Louis of today is a city of
nearly a million people, and they, with
state and National aid, propose giving
the people of the world the greatest Ex
position or World's Fair in all history.

The society originated in Wurtem

their belief being that the second ad

They were persecuted in Germany :
and tn I*o3, TJeorge Rapp. their pastor,
came to this eoontty.atid bonght * tract
of land, at and about the present loca
tion of the town of Harmony, and in
the antamn of the foUowing year one
hnndred and fifty families came over
and occupied i&
These endurtd many hardships, at
first, but their industry and persever
ence soon changed the forests into a
flourishing settlement. Their principal
occupations were the culture of the
grape, and the raising of sheep, and as
thtir location was somewhat of a disap
pointment to them for these purposes,
they, in 1813, moved to a larger tract,
near Mt. Vernon, in Posey county, Ind.
Here they built a town they called
New Harmonie, planted vineyards,
built mills, cburches, etc. and remaintd
for about a dozen years, when finding
their location very nnhealthy, they pur
chased and moved to the tract along
the Ohio, that has since been known to
the world as Economy.
When they left Butler county they
sold their property to Abraham Ziegler
for SIOO,OOO, and when they left Indi
ana they sold to Robert Owen for $125,-
000, and he founded a communistic col
ony there.
In 1824 the society numbered HOO and
in 1850, 300, nearlv all old people
In 1831 an adventurer calling himself
Connt De Leon made trouble in the so
ciety. Some members leaving and es
tablishing another colony, twelve miles
down the river at Philipsburg, most of
whom, after the count's flight, returned
to Economy.
> In 1828 they began the culture of the
mulberry tree, and the raising of silk
worms, and in 1840 their manufactured
silk was considered the best made in
the country, bnt it, like their cotton
and woolen manufactures had to be
abandoned on account of the decrease
in their numbers.
In 1846 their entire property was val
ued at nearly a million dollars, a«d in
'56 at two millions.
In 1894 they lost over a million dol
lars in a banking enterprise in Beaver
Falls, and it was abont this time that
yonng Dnss became the manager or
trustee of the property.
Now but thtee of the old members re
main, all old people, and they with
Dnss, owned the property, which has
been sold (with some reservations) for
four millions.
The Economites were honest and up
right, peaceable and virtuous, and their
attempt at communism was eminently
successful so far as this worlds affairs
were concerned, but they erred in disre
garding one of the great laws of nature
—that of pro-creation—and to this they
owe their end.
According to the Supreme Court de
cision obtained after the years of recent
litigation all this wealth will go to the
living members, the heirs of the dead
members having no share in it. The
Court also decided that the living mem
berg had at any time full power to wind
up the affairs of the society.
Duss is the last remaining trustee,
and under the society's law the pro{>erty
was held in trust for the society by the
trustees, reverting to the individuals on
its dissolution. „
A Silver AVediling: FaUy.
Some two hundred of the friends and
neighbors of A. C. Robb and wife of
Greece City assembled at their home,
last Saturday morning, to help them to
celebrate the 25th anniversary of their
wedding day. Everybody brought their
basket; tables were set and dinner eaten,
and then order was called for, and II
I. Painter was elected President of the
meeting. Remarks were made by Rev. j
Nicholas of Butler, Rev. Small of Karns
City, Christy Robb of Oakland twp. and
others; and" the West Sunbury band
furnished the music. The day was
pleasantly spent and greatly enjoyed by
all present.
(iolrien Wedding:.
On the 2nd day of May. 1903, a large
concourse of relatives and friends met
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ebert
of Saxonburg to celebrate the 50th an
niversary of their marriage. It was a
most beautiful day and the sunbeams
spread their light over this beautiful
sjiort in nature, like a mantle of gold
and the shrubs greeted the day with the
delicious odors of th«ir flowers, when
the birds raised in concerted melody
their hymn of praise. In short, all na
ture seemed to salute the aged father
and mother of this occasion, and to add
to the beauty as well as the enjoyment
of the occasion a number of charming
young ladies bad prepared a table laden
with the most inviting viands and de
corated with flowers, which located as
it was beneath the overshadowing trees,
formed a picture not soon to be for
gotten. After repairing to the table
and partaking of a most sumptuous re
past, the friends roamed at leisure
through the beautiful orchard, the
fragrance of whose Mossoms greeted
them in silent praise. An ot-gapization
being formed of which Mr. Anderson
was chosen Pres. and W. G. Russell,
Sec'y. Addresses were made by Rev.
Stallman.Mr. Heckert and P. H- Ilarbi
son. Mrs. Helen Wiley recited in her
usual pleasing manner. Many tributes
of respect in the way of presents were
inadu to the venerable and esteemed
couple, who have lived happily together
for fifth or more years, always having
cherished the thought, that earth is not
our home, and this thought ha« giyen
them strength to tread the thorny path
way of life. After a few remarks and
prayer by Rev. Stallman, the gathering
dispersed, Mr. and Mrs. Ebert
many more years'of and joy
all feeliug happy because tfied to
make others happy.

C poivthe tropic t «State

ed which shall include a State highway
commissioner and assistants, with head- .
quarters at Harrisburg. Whenever the
county commissioners of any county
outside of the cities or lioronghs shall
j>etition to the Highway department the
highway commissioner will investigate
the condition of roads in the territory
concerned, and if he thinks work shonlu
be undertaken he will have plans pre
pared, which he will report to the couu
ty commissioners and road supervisors
of the place where the work is proposed.
If the local authorities and the com
missioner conclude that the work is ad
visable the State will contract jointly
with the connty and township to make
or improve the road in question. Two
thirds of the cost of the iniprovement
will be Ijorne by the State and the bal
aiice by the county and township, each
paying half of the balance. Roads ma'le
ntJder this plan shall conform to the
standard established by the State De
partment of Highways, and tnnst be
constructed according to the be3t
engineering practice. All work shall be
done by contract, according to plans
prepared at Harrisburg, and approved
by the county and township authorities
A townstnp may bid For the construc
tion of the road if it desires, in which
case it must be prepared to do the work
according to the specifications. It is
apparent that a. cash road tax will be
required in those townships where good
roads are to. be built.
Contracts are to be made in the mime
of the Commonwealth, and to be ap
proved by the Attorney General. No
work will be commenced until the
cdtmty iiiid township authorities agree
in writing to pay the proportionate
share of the connty and township in the
work. Should townships desire to iin
prove their roads under this act they
may have their supervisors petition the
connty commissioners, whereupon the
commissioners may petition the State
department, accompanying the petition
with maps and plans of the road to tit
improved, and telling what material is
available for use in making the im
provements. Townships may issue
bonds to pay for the improvement. A
majority of the real estate valuations of
the township is sufficient when repre
sented in a petition against an improve
ment to stop any action. The owners
of the majority "of the real estate of the
township may petition the supervisors
to begin the wor« of road improvement,
which petition shall be acted upon by a
further petiticn to the authorities of the
county, who in tnrn will petition the
Should the county commissioners re
fase to act on the petition from the
township the township may appeal to
the court, whereupon viewers will be
appointed to determine the need of the
improvement If they report favorably
the court may require the county to
proceed to enlist the aid of the State in
making the road. For the maintenance
of roads made by State help a fund is
t#be set aside from the State appro
priation for repairs. Where a road
through a borough is a part of a main
line of travel which is improved by the
State it is permissible for the county to
enter into an agreement with the
borough to improve the road in the
borough. The State mav also help in
From this it will be seeu that the
work of making good roads is in the
hands of the people -of the townships
and counties and that they may begin
when they see fit.
The First Clear Night.
At half past light get out on the roof
and look westward. Just ou the hori
zon is the constellation Auriga, or the
Charioteer. It looks like a boy's kite,
greatly enlarged. The brightest star in
it is Capella, which is seventy light
years from us. Looking southwird
along the horizon you will note Procyon
one of the famous triangle stars Tak
ing the line from Procyon to Capella as
a base, loon to the left of its middle
point and a little above you will notice
two bright stars, the Heavenly Twins
(see below). The brighter one, toward
Procyon, is Pollux, the other. Castor.
Many people, in looking through an
almanac, have wondered at a series of
twelve symbols often used in showing
the position of the sun and moon for the
day. These are the twelve signs of the
zodiac. What is the zodiac? The zo
diac or ecliptic is the apparent path of
the sun, moon and planets in the sky.
The whole circle is divided into twelve
parts or signs. In each of these signs
there is a constellation with a name of
its own. These names are Aries, Tau
rus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo. Yirgo,Libra,
Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricornus,
Aquarius and Pisces Their English
name.s appear in the following rhyme.
The Ham, the Bull, the Heavenly
And next, the Crab, the Lion sbirns,
The Virgin and the Scales;
The Scorpion, Archer and Sea-Goat,
The Man that bears the Watering-pot,
And the Fish with glittering tails.
In order to understand the movement
of the sun through tbe zodiac, construct
this diagram:
Take a sheet of paper at hast b«x
inches square, iu the middle put the
Sun, a small circle with "S" iu its cen
tre; about tfejs draw two concentric cii
cles, one with a half inch, the other a
two inch radius. The outer circle must
now be cut into quadrants by drawing
vertical and horizontal diameters. Next
divide each quadrant into three parts.
Label the twelve, Ham, Bull, ect. in
The small circle represents the orbit
of the earth about the stationary snn,
at any point in it draw a small earth,
i labelling it "E." Nojv draw u light line
from E through S clear on till it pierces
the zodiac. This is yur line of sight,
and indicates the apparent position ot
the sun when the earth is in the given
position. Now with Eas a centre and
a quarter inch radius draw another cir
cle. thus !?e the moon's orbit. Take
the moon in any position The line of
sight an before will indicate it,; appar
ent position. The sun enters Aries on
the 21 st of March, the vernal equinox,
when it» rays are perpendicular at the
equator. Each month after the sun
changes its sign. The moon makes the
whole circle in a month, so it changes
its sign every two or three days.
