Politics not only "makes strange bed
fellows, bat also induce* politicians to
do strange things. Messrs Penrose and
Durham of Philadelphia, the present
stat* "bosses," having
the City by the revolt aga.nat the e^e
of the gas works and feanng the spread
of the revolt over the state, fixed upon
judge John Stewart of Franklin county
on account of his unimpeachable char
acter and established judicial attain
ments. as apolitical make weight to stem
rtln* i"'i' u,i4r r 'l' lD! ''"
against their management of the party,
and induced Gov. Pennypacker to ap
point him to fill the vacancy on the
Supreme Bench caused by the death of
Justice Dean; and Judge Stewart will
accept the appointment with the under
standing that the State Committee is to ]
nominate him for a full term of twenty
one years.
Judge Stewart has been a leading
figure in independent movements in
this state for a quarter of a century.
In 1882 he was the independent candi
date of a revolt against the Cameron
regime; and his candidacy was an im
portant factor in the election of _ Patti
son. Before that be had been a vigor
ous critic in the Legislature of jobbery
and subservience. In succeeding years
he became reconciled with the party
organization, but it has never been
heard that by doing so he compromised
his integrity or involved himself with
the misdeeds that are perpetrated in
the name of the organization.
There is no doubt that Judge Stew
art on the Supreme Bench will be an
upright and independent Judge, far
above being swayed by the wishes of
political powers or the influences that
•re sometimes exerted-to affect judicial
action. His service on the lower bench
has demonstrated his full qualification
for the appellate position. It is doubt
fnl if a selection couli have been made
within the State more unexceptionable
in its character or containing a better
guarantee of ,tbe integrity of the Su
preme Court.
Whatever the motives that have con
trolled the Governor and bis advisew
in making this nomination they deserve
credit for a first-class selection.
The greatest measure of hope for the
purification of Philadelphia politics may
be found in the latest order of Mayor
Weaver in which he says that all em
ployes of the city must report the
number of voters registered from their
homes, supplementing it with the
recommendation that they should not
be engaged as landlords in boarding
State Chairman Andrews baa called
upon the State Committeemen to meet
in Philadelphia, next Wednesday, June
21st, at 2 p. m.. for the purpose of
nominating a candidate for Justice of
the Supreme Court, and quotes Rnle 6
of the State Rule* as his authority for
so doing.

Is wondering at President Roosevelt's
success in bringing about the necessary
preliminaries to peace or a truce be

countries have agreed to appoint peace
plenipotentiaries and name a time and
place for their meeting.
Russia is already beaten, badly beat
en, in war ; and the destruction of Line
vitchs army—her last hope—will
make her borders liable to Japanese ag
gression, both by land and sea. If she
had an honest government there would
be no trouble about concluding a peace,
but the Jip» will probably be very
wary in dealing with a government
founded upon and maintained by Fear,

The Schools of Butler County
(Extracts from ex-County Superintend
ent Painter's last report to State
Superintendent Schaeffer.)
"I hereby submit my sixth annnal re
port of tne" schools of iiutler county.
The year just closed, as a whole, was
very satisfactory. The teachers, with
but few exceptions, were faithful and
tried to succeed. In this work as in all
other places in life some few always
fail; yet we do not wonder at that, for
wben we come close to the work of the
teacher and stndv it carefully and see
it in its trials and difficulties, we are
surprised that more of them do not fail
eacn year,
The attendance of the pupils in most
sections of the county was good, though
some few districts were careless in this
matter, and the attendance was not
what it should have been. Poor attend
ance means poor progress for any pu
piL It is also contagious and one or
two families afflicted with it may spoil
the report and progress of a whole
school. It therefore rests upon pupils,
parents, directors and teachers to re
duce this habit to the minimum.
Fifteen public examinations for teach
ers were held during the year. Mid were
attended by four hundred and fifty ap
plicants. ; f wo hundred and thirty pu
pils successfully passed the diploma ex
amination. This was the largest class
of pupils ever graduated from the
schools of this county and we think it is
a partial outcome of an earnest effort
that has been made to encouroge our
boys and girls to complete our common
school course and then to take some
higher education. Through the press,
in public meetings and in my visits to
the schools I have brought this matter
before our young people and their pa
rents every time I could do so, and bv
taking note of the students now attend
ing our normal school, and the several
academies and high schools of our
county, we see more young students en
rolled" than usual in each of them.
Eighty of our teachers were be
ginners and eighty four of them had
taught for five or more terms; and by a
careful calculation I find that the
wages paid onr teachers this past year,
on an average, were fifteen percent
higher than those paid six years ago.
This steady increase in wages was not
due to the minimum salary law for that
law changed the wages of only three
townships of this county.
This question of teachers wages is one
of vital importance to our schools and
I have regarded and treated it as such
daring my superintendency. Wo want
no poor teachers, and we can't expect
to get and hold good ones very long an
less they are fairly well paid for their
I again visited every public school in
the county and called at several of
them the second time. I attended and
took part in fifty educational meetings
during the year and, judging from the
attendance and interest shown in most
of them, I feel safe in here reporting
the school sentiment in this county as
very good.
Our three township high schools did
?;ood work. These schools are growing
n favor in our county and the work of
organizing three new ones has already
been nearly completed.
Daring my sui»erintendency 1 have
endeavored to place good pure litera
ture in the hands of our young people
The teachers were examined each year
as to the books they were reading and
the ones thev wanted their pupils to
read. School libraries were advocated
and through the efforts of our people
more than two hundred libraries have
been placed in the schools of Bntler
county during the last five years.
In closing my work as superintendent
of the schools of Butler county I do so
with a clear conscience, having done
the best I could for the good of the
schools. 1 made my mistakes in the
work but meant to wrong no one. And
now I wish to thank directors, parents,
teachers and pupils for the many act*
of kindness shown me during the year"
I acted as superintendent. It was only
because of your help that my work was
of any benefit.
I bespeak tor our newly elected sup
erintendent, Prof. Pentield, the same
kind treatment you gave me, and my
heart's desire is to see our schooln
everywhere prosper in the future even
more than they have done in the past

Funeral from residence ofr his sister,
Mrs. Theo. Yogelev, Friday morning at
10 o'clock.
That "in the midst of life we are in
death" was never more forcibly im
pressed on the minds of the people of
Bntler thnn it WAS last Thursday even
lug, J uue 3, 1905 when the word was
passed around—"John Bickel is dead.'
He was on'the street and in his store
during the day, apparently in his usual
health; and was up street that evening,
but mentioned then to one or two men
he talked with that his stomach was
bothering him.
He started for his home on N Mc-
Kean Street about 9 o'clock: was taken
sick on N. Main street, was helped to
his home and expired shortly after.
His funeral, Monday, was very large
lv attended, and he was laid to his eter
nal rest in the family lot in the South
John Bickel was the eldest son of
Philip Bickel, deed., and was born in
February of 1843. He passed his boy
hood in Bntler. and was but 19 years of
age when the Civil War began. He
enlisted, in 1862, in Co. K of the 134 th
the company of which Ed. Lyon was
the first Captain, and of which Will
Campbell. Geo. Bowers and others yet
living were members—was wounded at
Fredericksburg in December of 18C2,
and was dischaiged with the regiment
in 1863. ,
Sometime after he engaged with his
brother-in-law in the shoe business, dis
solved partnership and engaged in the
business for himself—and by reason of
his cleverness, close attention to details
and invariable good nature, has been
one of the most successful business men
Butler has ever produced.
No man engaging in business in this
town for a long term of years made
more friends, or died with fewer ene
mies, than did John Bickel.
He is survived by his wife, nee Smith;
two song, George and Philip, and one
daughter, Mrs. F. G. Holnian; also by
one brother, Henry, and three sisters,
Mrs. Ruff, Mrs. Crail and Mrs. Miller.
The accidental death of his son,
Albert, some years ago was a sad blow
to him. and he has often complained of
his heart and stomach. Lately he has
found relief in taking long walks after
business hours, but it was that trouble
that caused his sudden death.
He is dead and buried, out of sight
but the genial, good-natured, honest
and clever, John Bickel, will live long
in the memory of those who knew him.
He was in his 63d year.
J W Waters, * stranger who worked
in the Lead Works, was stricken by
paralysis, some days ago, and was taken

alj efforts to locate bis relations have

Dr W E. James, aged 80, of Bradys
Bend, died, Monday morning after

practiced medicine for the last 40 years
at Bradys liend and was also closely

011 industry in this end of the State.

The world Is full of women whose
daily life is one long struggle against
diseases peculiar to their sex -whose
days and nights are full of quiet, patient
suffering. The head the seat of pain
and pressure—the result of nerve de
pression and physical weakness brought
on by uterine or ovarian trouble—the
nerves on edge -inclined tolaughor cry
at anything—an ever present dragging
in the back, hips and limbs—a feeling
of utter weariness—lassitude and des

Chase,s Nerve Pills are of incomparable
vain*, having as they do the power to
rebuild, to relnvigorate and resupply
every organ, every nerve, every muscle
with the lost energy, and to insure a
complete return to health, strength and
vigor again.
Mrs. John Bailey of Jackson St, Penn
Yan, N. Y., says: .
''l was told that Dr. A. W. Chases
Nerve Pills were a great nerve medicine,
and as I needed one badly, 1 got a l>ox.
My nerves were very weak I lacked
ambition and strength and my heart
action was very weak. I used the Pills
as directed and they made my nerves
quiet and steady-the hcirt action
strong and regular and the appetite
good, my sleep became restful and I

It la the GmtHt MOT In K Force In
(he Ruiinna World.
Otic of the greatest millionaires of
anr country lived before lie made h:s
| millions on $S a week and at a time
: when bis income was SIO,OOO a year.
' He saved all tlie rest of his salary for
i judicious investments, lie had been a
j poor boy. accustomed to a frugal mode
of life. He began his career in the city
sweeping out a store for $3.50 a week.
Later he was advanced to $7.00. The
mode of living which he was obliged to
adopt as a boy he considered
good enough for later years, especially
-when he saw that by denying himself
for awhile longer he might make the
experiences and hard knocks he had
gained count for more than a mere liv
ing. He might have argued that he
was doing pretty well to earn SIO,OOO a
year and that lie deserved to enjoy it.
But he preferred to use his earnings to
make more money that some day he
might be able to dispense with a sala
ried position altogether. And this man
had a wife, too, who was farsighted
enough to be willing to live on a small
sum when it meant an easier road for
both by and by.
Ready cash is the greatest moving
force in tbe business world. It speaks
with the loudest voice, and its posses
sion represents business acumen. Of
course there are exceptions in cases of
inheritance, etc., but the exception on
ly pfores the rule.
Cornelius Vanderbilt worked day and
night, saving every penny, until lie had
$3,000, the nest egg about which gath
ered one of tho largest fortunes ever
amassed in America. The principle of
thrift inculcated by those hard, self de
nying years made him a great finan
cier.—New York Commercial.
A Cnmicnl Study ol the tilrrmr of
Aniiual Stupidity.
The utter stupidity of sheep is per
haps nowhere more strongly evidenced
than in the perfect satisfaction with
which a ewe that has lost her lamb
will take to a strange lamb around
which has been fastened, the skin of
her dead offspring.
Considering that the skin of the dead
lamb is often merely thrown loosely
over the back of the living lamb, some
times hanging almost to the ground on
one side or the other and making the
lamb appear the quaintest kind of ani
mal imaginable, the ewe's gullibility in
this respect is remarkable. There can
be no other explanation of her satisfac
tion than that she really thinks the
muffled little stranger is her own prog
eny; otherwise she would give it no at
tention whatever.
Us appearance does not seem to count,
nor even its voice. Its smell is every
thing, which may be seen in any flock
of ewes and lambs, for while the moth
ers certainly appear to know the bleat
ing of their own children, the identifica
tion is always completed by the ewe
sniffing the coat of her lamb.
I have been looking at two such
quaint families in the lambing pens re
cently, and the picture of a sedate ewe
placidly attending to two weird little
creatures which look as if they have
been half flayed Cone of them was ac
tually dragging its second skin In the
straw; was the most comical study of
animal stupidity which could be imag
ined.—l.ondon Express.
Beauty nnil the Benst.
"How do you do, Mrs. Venus?" ex
claimed a gentleman of that lady's ac
quaintance. "Pray, what brings you
out so early in the day?"
"Oh, I've just been to the photogra
pher with my pet pug Pougo" (which
she carried in her arms), "and we have
had our portraits taken together,
haven't we, Pongo? Ueauty and the
beast, you know, Mr. Johnson," with a
saucy little laugh.
"And what a little beauty he is, to be
sure," replied Johnson inadvertently
as he tenderly stroked poor l'ongo's
And then ho suddenly remembered
and became hot and cold in turn, and

On the campl!-: of Kmory college, lu
Oxford, f!a., there is a table to the
memory of Ignatius Few, tin* first
president. One day a freshman was
crossing the campus with his cousin,
who asked him to explain the inscrip

" 'Vi vit non mortnus est,'" she
read slowly. "What does that mean,
"That," said tho freshman easily,
"oh, that means, 'He lives—no, lie
don't, he's dead.'"
