EHMjg On Thursday last Rep. Huff introduc
ed a bill appropriating #IOO,OOO for a
public building in Butler.
There ia a difference of opinion over
the failure of the extra session of Con
gress to adjourn sine die. thns creating
a distinct recess between its adjourn
ment and the convening of the regular
r session. It arises over appointments,
and is the first of its kind.
The President has distinct authority
to fill all vacancies during the recess of
the Senate, and, acting under this con
stitutional authority, he commissioned
Brigadier General Wood a Major Gen
eral and moved up 167 other army offi
cers as a result of the change. When
Congress met in November he sent the
nominations to the Senate for confirma
tion or rejection, as he was in duty
bound to do. (
80 far, so good. Bat the Constitution
farther provides that if the Senate fails .
to act by the end of the session nomina- <
tions fall. The extra session came to a ,
close at noon on Monday, and at the ,
same hour the regular session began (
Taking the gronnd that there was a re- j
cess, although its duration was exceed- ,
ingly limited, the President recommis
sioned General Wood and again sent
the nominations to the Senate.
Secretary Shaw's annual report is
more interesting than such documents ,
usually are. Aside from the maes of
1 statistics which he gives concerning the
operations of the Treasury, he has some
things to say that are worthy of a great
deal of consideration. First of all is
the threatened deficit for 1905. For the
coming year he figures out a surplus of
about fifteen millions, but for the next
there is an apparent deficit. Calcula
tions for two years ahead are notably
untrustworthy because actual commer
cial conditions cannot be foreseen,
neither can there be any sound judg
ment as to what Congress will do either
in the matter of raising money or ex
pending it. Based on normal conditions,
there is, however, a deficit coming
which is small compared with the large
surplus in the Treasury. This is no
cause for alarm, as we have already
more money idle than is good for the
At the meeting of the Republican Na
tional committee in Washington, last
Satnrday, Chicago was selected as the
place for holding the next National
Convention, and Tuesday, June 21st,
the day. Pittsbnrg had but 7 votes to
48 tor Chicago and one for St. Louis.
The objection to Pittsburg was the in
sufficiency of her hotel accommodations,
though Dalzell put up a strong plea for
Dalzell on Pittsburg.
Extract from Dalzell's speech to the
National Committee:
"Pittsburgh wants the convention as
a matter of sentiment. Well, why not?
Do yon know any more potent force in
the world's moral economy than senti
ment? Why does the man, mature in
. years, successful or unsuccessful, revisit
with reverence the place of his birth
and revel attain in the memories of his
bdyhood? Why doe* the wanderer
fepft abroad look with eagerness for the
lights, the bills and the shores of his na
tiye land? Sentiment, pure sentiment.
Bnt in that sentiment is the essence of
patriotism, and patriotism is the relig
r km of liberty. Sentiment. Why, it
„ lies at the base of home life; of gener
ous aspiration, of every noble impulse.
It ia the mainspring of ambition. It
rules the woild. It is a reasonable and
should be a potent argument in itself
of Pittsburgh's claim to entertain a Re
publican national convention. Come to
the place where the party was born ;
come to the old home, the original roof
tree, and catch again the inspiration of
the little band that entered upon a cru
sade in the interest of the dignity of hu
man labor and inaugurated an era of
K which today's unexampled prosperity is
the ripe fruit. Old Lafayette hall is
gone, but on its site rises a commercial
palace, one of the many witnesses to the
glory of Republican policies. All around
are other witnesses. Come and see
A; them. For miles and miles along the
shores of our rivers I will show you the
watchflresof protection; the pillar of
clond by day and the pillar of fire by
fig: | night that more eloquently than any
human tongue bespeak the beneficent
results of the policies of Lincoln and
A Birthday Party.
A very pleasant surprise was given
Dec. 10,1903, in honor of Mrs. Nancy
Powell Harvey by her children, grand
children and great grand-children at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. A. J.
Critchlow, near Glade Run, it being
the occasion of her seventy-fifth birth
day. At the noon hour a sumptuous
dinner was served, of which all partook
very heartily. Grandma was the recip
ient of a number of beautiful and use
ful presents. Just before dinner a let
ter was received from her son, Geo. C.
Powell, of Connellsville, Pa., stating
the cause ot his absence, but he and his
family remembered grandma by send
ing her a beautiful present. The after
noon was spent in social intercourse
and music. In the evening all returned
all returned to their homes, after wish
ing grandma msny happy returns of
the day. Those present were Mr. and

As to Penny packer.
The remarkable letter of Gov. Penny
packer, in which he indicated his desire
to abandon the office of Governor when
his tenn would be less than half finish
ed, in order to take practically a life
position npon the Supreme Bench, al
though be pledged himself when a can
didate for Governor not to take such a
course, has not surprised those who
have closely watched his career. In
this new move he is bnt playing the
part he has always acted, that of a pli
ant subject in the hands of Senator
I Quay. Anybody with half a political
eye can see that this latest inspiration
of Gov. Pcnr.ypacker proceeded from
the Beaver man.
Nobody will imagine that it was Gov.
Pennypacker's idea to appoint a Demo
crat to the Supreme court in the person
of Judge Thompson so as to pave the
way for his own elevation to the same
position at the expiration of the com
mission issued by himself. That idea
had its origin in the mind of the senior
Senator from this state. Pittsburg
The most remarkable feature of the
case is the utter obliviousness of the
Governor to the moral quality of the
act. He is absolutely unconscious of
any impropriety in what he is doing.
The naivete and simplicity with which
he is shocked at any imputation of
wrong in the prostitution of the power
of the Governor to open the way for
himself have never been surpassed.
There is nothing in the fantastic fancies
of Don Quixote or in the dull and dense
opacity of Wouter von Twiller that
can exceed the strange and incompre
hensible obliquity of view which the
Governor shows.
He sees nothing in his desertion of his
poet which should expose him to criti
cism. He sees nothing in the designa
tion of a Democrat with the ostensible
virtue of nonpartisanship but with the
real purpose of leaving the door open
for himself that indicates any sinister
design. It is as if he sat down in the
narrow range of a provincial home and
applied to problems of state the princi
ples which might govern a barnyard.
The singular and inexplicable mala
droitness which has stamped so many
of the Governor's acts and utterances
as wayward and eccentric is illustrat
ed in this peculiar demonstration. Noth
ing could have been more malapropos.
Even if his determination had been un
objectionable, his method of announc
ing it lacked every element of tact and
jadgment. —Phil'a Press.
Those who are attacking Samuel W.
Pennypaeker for his moral obliquity in
seeing no wrong in the method he pur
sues in peeking a seat on the supreme
court bench have evidently not made
much of a study of this remarkable
He is the Pennypacker who thinks
Quay as great and good a statesman as
Webster or Clay.
It is this same Samuel W. Penny
packer who for four months sat next
door to a Pennsylvania legislature and
said he could find no evidences of cor
ruption in its proceedings, while lobby
ists thrived within its doors.
It was Pennypacker,of Schwenksville,
surnamed Samuel, who named as one
member of his cabinet a municipal boss
who vies with Tammany in methods,
and as another member a former munic
ipal boss who lived for years in a cor
rupt atmosphere
It was this sage of the Perkiomen
who officially assented to the b-heiue of
corrupt politicians to prevent proper
newspaper criticism, and who saw fit to
write an apology for his ofliciul act
ranking second in its nauseating tone to
the "P. S." letter of his predecessor.
With all of these circumstances in
view, sharp criticism is uncharitable.
The proper sentiment is pity. —Leader.
Clara Badger is recovering from an
attack of typhoid fever.
The Lutheran Snnday School will
have their Christmas services on Thurs
day evening before Christmas.
The box social at the U. P. church,
Friday evening, was a very pleas int
and successful affair.
Johu and Charles vVeigle were in
Lawrence county, last week, attending
the funeral of their cousin, Joseph
G. B. Beighley sprained his back
while building the derrick for the new
well on the Kennedy farm, and has
been pretty old and helpless since.
The Portersville high school we(f en
tertained by Mr. and Mrs Wallace,
Friday evening, and gave their "col
lege" yell in fine style.
Several of the young folks attended
the dance at Gns Shannon's one
last week, and think Gas is as handy
about a house as a girl.
Nick Keighner was stricken with par
alysis some time ago, and his recovery
is considered doubtful.
George Warren" Perry Hunter, May
Henshaw and Sam Graham are drilling
the Kennedy well.
Mrs. Mary White, of Kent, Ohio, and
Mrs. Amelia Albert, of Franklin, Pa.
were here last week to see their sick
mother, Mrs. Catherine Shatter.
Mr. Price, of Bridgewater, Beuvcr
county, was the gn< st of his mother-in
law, Mrs. Caiherine Koth, Sunday.
Teacher*' Institute I'oHtponecl.
Owing to the serious epidemic of ty
phoid fever, and also on account of the
serious illness of County Supt. Howard
I. Painter, the Butler County Teachers'
Institute is postponed until Monday,
February 8-I'', 1904.in the Court House,
Butler, Pa.
It is confidently anticipated that at
that time Sn'.t. Painter will again be
ablo to attend to his w.-rk, and that lo
cnl conditions will hive so improved as
to relieve all from any anxiety which
would be attendant, were the institute
held at the time formerly Hrr;uigtd.

Finding a Fortune and
Founding a Fortune.
It is perliap9 true as told that a tramp,
searching a garbage barrel for scraps of
refuse food, found a fortune in good
United States currency. Such a thing
may happen.
But the workman who givea up a
steady occupation however unremuner
ative to hunt garbage barrels for a fort
une will surely degenerate to a tramp.
There is a difference between finding a
fortune ami founding a fortuue. Few
j men chance upon fortunes. The fort
unes we know about are not found but
founded ou a certain substantial basis.
The nature of that basis of fortune is
well set forth in the advice given by a
successful merchant to u young man
who asked, "What is the first requisite
to making a fortune?" "The first re
quisite to making a fortune" 6iid the
rich ttian, "is health." "The idea that
fortunes are made suggests toil and in
dustry and skill. Nothing can be made
without these. But a weak man cannot
toil, and industry is incompatible with
ill-health. If you want to be strong
remember that all physical strength
comes from food and that the amount of
strength extracted from food depends
upon the ability of the stomach to di
gest food and assimilate its nutrition.
The man who takes care of his digestion
is, in general, taking care of every other
organ of his body."
The merchant who gave the above
opinion m*y not have r>een much of a
physician but he was a good deal of a
philosopher. He had seen men with
success almost within the grasp, break
down because of "stomach trouble."
He had theorized the i>ayin«r that the
" weakest must go to the wail" into the
saying that "the man with the weakest
stomach must go to the wall," l>ecause
110 man is stronger than his stomach.
The man who will learn this lesson of
success has taken a great stride to his
goal. Health is the first prerequisite of
success and health in general means a
•ound stomach and a good digestion.
I/K>k at tlie logic of the matter. Food
is a man's life, his strength. Physical
life is sustained by food. Hut the fact
that a tiling can l>e eaten doesn't make
it food. Many a physician practising in
the tenements of a city says of failing
men or women, "What they need is
nourishing food." Shipwrecked men
cat scraps of leather, the bark of trees,
anything to satisfy hunger. But this is
not food in any true sense because it
contains 110 nutrition. All food must
fee considered iu relation to its nutritive
value. When the stomach and the al
lied organs of digestion and nutrition
are diseased the nutrition contained in
food is imperfectly extracted and the
body fails of nutrition adequate to its
needs. The shipwrecked sailor living
upon scraps in wliich there is no nutri
tion is on a level with the man who eats
abundant nutritious food but whose
stomach with its allied organs is dis
eased and therefore fails to extract from
the food eaten the nutrition which if
the body's need.
That is almost an axiom. The man
with a sound stomach and good diges
tion will in ordinary be a sound man,
because the nutriment of food is the life
and strength of heart, lungs, liver, kid
neys and every organ of the body.
The first need of a weak man is tc
look after his stomach and his digestion.
TTiere is the common scat of physical
weakness. How weak men
have been made strong j
strong of heart, liver, lungs,
kidneys, and other organs
by being made strong of
stomach and strong of di
gestion has Ijeen told thou
sands of times by tlios«
1 who have used Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery.
" I write to tell you of
the great benefit I have re
ceived from the use of I)r.
Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery," writes Mr. G. B.
Bird, of Byrnside, Putnam
Co., W. Va. "It cured me
of a very bad case of indi
gestion associated with tor
pid liver. Before I began
the use of 'Golden Medical
Discovery' I had no appe
tite ; could not sleep nor
work but very little. The
little that I ate did not
agree with me, bowels con
stipated, and lif« was a
misery to me. I wrote to
Dr. Pierce giving the symp
toms, and asked for advice.
You advised me to try the 'Golden Med
ical Discovery' so I began the use of it
and after taking four bottles I felt so
well that I went to work, but soon got
worse, so I ngiin began the use of it and
used it about eight weeks longer, when I
was permanently cured. I took in all
twelve bottles of the ' Discovery' and
some of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets in
connection with the 'Discovery.'"
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery cures diseases of the stomach and
other organs of digestion and nutrition.
It cures through the stomach diseases
which seem remote from that organ but
which have their origin in disease of the
stomach tit id its allied organs.
There is no alcohol in "Golden Med
ical Discovery" and it is entirely free
from opium, cocaine and other narcotics.
Persons suffering from disease in
chronic form are invited to consult Dr.
Pierce by letter, free. All letters held
us strictly private and sacredly confi
dential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce,
Buffalo, N. Y.
