The net saving to Dauphin county
through the redemption of the bonds at
?10 below par will total exactly $2,-
000, representing the difference be
tween the purchase price of 18,000 and
the par value of $20,000. However,
that is not the only saving. The bonds
would not have matured for sixteen
year?- or until 1931 and the county
would have been oblige! to pay inter
est on the bonds annually at the rate
of three per cent. That would have
amounted to S6OO a year or $9,600 by
the date of their maturity.
The SIB,OOO with which theVionds
were redeemed was taken out of the
county's general fund, on which de
positories are paying the county two
per cent. That, interest money would,
in sixteen years, amount to J0,760,
which the county of course loses, but
jvhen subtracted from the $9,600,
which would have had to be paid out
as interest on the $20,000 bonds dur

The state tax on the $20,000 worth
of bonds during the ensuing sixteen
years would have amounted to $1,280,

the three men condemned for murder
who desire their death sentences coin
muted to imprisonment for life. The
first was that of Rocco Tassone, under
sentence of death ir, Lancaster county
for the killing of a fruit dealer named
Collati. The case was presented by
Benjamin C. Atlce, who said that Tas
sone, a. weak-minded Italian, had been
compelled by two brothers named Vi

Colatti, their rival. The Vitali broth

The man killed, Mr. Jones hold, went to

Jesus Christ. Children do not need to
know all about the doctrines of the
church to enter it, they only n?ed to
know enough of Jesus to love Him.
"A minister has criticised this cam
paign, saying that a griat many of the
converts were children. Nobody should
ever discredit the coming of children
to Jesus. The strength of the Catholic
church has always been that it has ta
ken in the children before they grow
up. Protestants need to take a lesson
in that respect from Rome.
"A boy who is old enough to be a
criminal is old enomgfh to be a Chris
tian. When I look out to the crowd
of young people I aim alarmed. I find
that more boys and glirls are convert
ed between the ages of 11 and 14
than any other periods. Yet a large
(proportion of children are not con
verted at that time. When these chil
dren pass on to 16 and 18, there conies
the tragedy of life. Then is tho laying
of the foundations. If children do not

seldom come before they are in their
Dangerous Ages 14 to 25
"What happens in the intervening
years? Ail the artifices of the Devil
are set for youth between the ages of
14 and 25. Some of the most dastardly
crimes on the dockets were committed
in those ages.
"The Sunday schools have a prob
lem to holkl the boys after tihey are
14. Few boys between 14 and 20 at
tend the average Sunday schools than
boys of any other age. This is the time
that woiriilliness creeps in and takes
away interest in Christ. Young people
throng the theatres, moving picture
sihows and dancing halls and lose their
taste for Christianity.
"Some children are damned by
their parents. A child that is not
taught to fear God and honor Jesus
Christ is surely damned."
To illustrate his point in the courso
of his sermon, the • evangelist told
stories of horrible deaths. Ifc described
how a sanall boy was dashed to death
down a ravine, on the back of a wild
pony, how a woman gave her three
olhildren rat poison instead of tfbe doc
tor's medicine and kilted thorn, later
dying herself, prostrated over the
grave of her liittl« ones, and how a
lawyer died without accepting Christ
while his wife struggled with him in
mad efforts to keep him in life.

There were seventy trail hitters, in
•cluiling members of the lire companies.
One young man who rose to shake' Dr.
■Stouigih'a han'd in 1 the after meeting,
said he was separated from his wife,
and promised the evangelist ho would
send her "a srweet beautiful letter,"
asking her to forgive him.
During the 'hand-shaking, I)r. Stough
called for the Irish ibov to come forward

PICTURESQUE ICE FIELDS
Scenic Beauties of Uncle Sam's Glacier
That the ice fields of Glacier Na
tional Park present some of the best
examples of active glaciers now found
in the United States is a statement
made by W. C. Alden in a government
pamphlet. "They have a splendid set
ting in magnificent alpine scenery,"-
says Mr. Alden, "unsurpassed in gran
deur anywhere. Hidden away in the
recesses of the mighty mountain ranges,
these rare and wonderful features form,
a climax to many of the interesting
trips open to the tourist.
"There are in the park about ninety
small glaciers, ranging in size from
Blaekfeet glacier, with its three square
miles of ice, down to masses but a few.
acres in extent, yet exhibiting the char-'
acteristics of true glaciers.
"After examining these features one
can easily picture to himself as lie
looks down the valleys the great rivers
of ice, which in ages past cascaded
from the cliffs below the upper cirques,
c onverged as tributaries from the many
branch valleys and united in great
trunk glaciers. In imagination lie can
see these great glaciers, many hundreds
of feet in depth, filling the great moun
tain \ alleys from side to side and de-,
ploying thence upon the bordering
plains, ille seems to see these mighty
engines plucking away the rock ribs,
of the mountains, smoothing grinding
and polishing the irregularities and
sweeping away the debris to be spread
on the plains below. These glaciers de
veloped and extended three times and'
after each development the congealed
masses melted away on the return of
milder climatic, conditions until at
length only the small cliff glaciers of
the present day are left lurking in the
protected recesses at the heads of the
"Many of the rock-walled amphi
theatres are no longer occupied by ice,
but from all there issues streams fed
by the melting snow o* ice. Tiiese
plunge over the cliffs in beautiful,
foaming cascades and rush on down the
mountain gorges. The melting glaciers
left many inclosed basins, lurge and
small, and in these the waters rest <
awhile and mirror in their crystal /
depths tho dark green of the surround- I
ing forests, the jrich colors of the rug- /
ged mountain walls and the deep blue I
of the cloud-flecked iJcy. On, again,/
from lake to lake, thiy waters llow and/
finally start down their long courses to
the s'ea to merge at length with the
chill waters of Hudson bay, the balmy
tides of the Gulf of Mexico or the roll
ing billcws of tho Pacific."
Cause for Friction
Young Demmons, an adjuster for a
big insurance com|rany, was just re
turning home from a nearby city, where 1
ho had been to adjust a loss on a
building that had burned, when he met
an old friend.
"How did the fire startf" inquired
"I cant say with certainty," re- *
plied the adjuster, "and nobody seem
ed able to tell. But it struck me it
might have been the result of friction."
"Why," asked the friend, "what do
you mean by thatl"
"Well," said Demmons gravely,
"friction sometimes comes from rub
bing a $15,000 policy on a SIO,OOO
building.''—New York Times.
