TARDY COLLECTION OF ASHES
Are certain sections of Harrisburg to experience ;
the same inconvenience they experienced about a
year ago, when snow was on the ground, as the !
result of delays in the matter of garbage eollec- j
tion, or at least in the collection of ashes, by the
company thai has the contract for that work in
In another column is printed a letter to the editor
complaining of annoyance from this source, and it
can be said in addition that in at least one section
of the West End the regular visit of the ash col
lectors was omitted last week.
The fact that the streets are icy or covered with
snow is no excuse for being lax in the matter of
the collection of ashes. The colder the weather the
more important it is that the ashes should be re
moved promptly, because the lower the temperature
poes the greater is the accumulation of this kind
of rubbish from furnaces and other stoves.
If weather conditions make collections more dif
ficult it is up to the contractors in the districts in
which there is complaint, to redouble their efforts
to have the work done, and if they fail to get it
done it is up to the City authorities, upon whom
the responsibility finally rests, to see that the con
tractors are kept up to the mark in this matter
that is of importance to every housekeeper in Har
PUTTING CONVICTS ON THEIR HONOR
Success even beyond his own expectations is
meeting the efforts of Thomas Mott Osborne, the
'"Golden Rule Warden of Sing Sing prison, to
govern the inmates, —he objects to calling them
convicts.—through kindness, common sense and ap
plied Christianity. The course Warden Osborne
is pursuing has not failed to meet with criticism
from outside, but he answers the arguments of his
critics something like this:
Prison reform must begin inside the prison. The criticism
that I am trying to make prison life attractive is based on
iietion. I do not want to make it so attractive that men
will want to break into it. The fact is that the great ma
jority of the men in Sing Sing want to do right. All we
need to do is to apply common sense and the fundamentals
of Christianity in the treatment of those who want to be
* Now well Warden Osborne's Golden Rule prin
ciples have been working out in the great prison,
the government of which in the past had been so
grave a problem, can be gleaned from the fact
there has not been a single case of punishment in
Sing Sirig since December 11. Instead the men
have worked in the shops with a new spirit. The
foreman of the shoe department said that for two
years under the old regime shoes had been stolen
by prisoners out of every shipment that went out.
Since December 7 not one pair of shoes has been
I lie policy of the Golden Rule warden is proving
that even convicted thieves can be put on their
honor. It is proving that there is some good in
every man and that there is a way of treating him
that will bring that good to the surface. It is
proving that the best way to protect society,—
which is the fundamental purpose of penitentiaries,
—is not to treat prisoners so that their brutal in
stincts will be developed and so that they will only
think of preying upon society when they are set
free after having served out their terms, but rather

VACATION TIME AT THE SHORE
Advices from Atlantic City these days remind
one that there all the time is vacation tinie, for
Atlantic City has become an all-year-round resort,
instead of particularly a summer resort. The ac
! couimodating gulf stream is said to have tempered
the Atlantic City climate and to have made it a
delightful winter retreat.
Reports of life at the shore just now are very
exhilarating. The pleasure-seekers there are plung
ing into hot or cold sea water in their bath rooms
or even making merry in their bathing suits along
the beach. They are vigorously playing golf, or
if oppositely inclined, are leisurely riding about
the boardwalk in roller chairs. They are thronging
the tango halls, the amusement piers, the music
halls, the theatres and, of course, the moving pic
ture show houses, and all are having a joyous va
At Palm Beaeh and similar resorts, there is also
luxurious idleness and happiness. There are out-of
door activities in great variety, under the warm
glow of the partial sun, while in this particular
clime stoves and steam pipes are busily engaged in
comforting shivering humanity.
All the time is vacation time at the shore, yet
only privileged persons can realize the fact fully.
It must suffice for those whose only vacation is the
summer vacation, to derive what enjoyment is pos
sible from the accounts of the merrymaking which
reach them at this time of year.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDIES IN COLLEGES
The first topic to be discussed at the State Edu
cational Association convention now feeing held in
the Technical High School, was that of "The Re
duplication of High School Studies by Colleges.''
presented yesterday afternoon by Professor Gra
ham, of Pittsburgh, it is fitting that this subject
should take first place, at least so far as the pro
gram arrangement is concerned, for it is one of
much import among educators, and one that needs'
to receive some attention from persons who plan to
put children through college.
I'hat there now exists unnecessary duplication in
colleges and universities, in subjects such as chem
istry, physics, trigonometry and English literature,
is a condition well known to all who know anything |
at all about educational matters. Students spend j
time in high Schools on those subjects, then go to i
colleges and are forced to repeat practically the J
same elementary work.
The result ot' this lack of proper arrangement '
and adaptation of courses is that a year or a sem- j
ester of work is acutally lost for no other reason
than that high schools and colleges have not co
operated but have independently planned their
curricula and left the students to suffer the conse
quences of resulting duplications.
A young man taking academic studies might be'
graduated from the Harrisburg High School for
example, and offer courses he there received in
trigonometry, chemistry and English literature as
college entrance requirements, yet be forced to
repeat these subjects in essentially the same details
during his freshman year at the higher institution,
merely because they are prescribed in the college
catalogue. In fact, he might during his first year
at college study no more than one branch which j
is absolutely new to him, all the others having been
introduced during his high school course.
The elimination from college curricula of pre
scribed first year studies which are distinctly repe
titions of high school work done by the students
before they ever saw the colleges, would not neces
sarily be a step in the shortening of college courses.
Instead of the overlapping elementary studies,
actual collegiate work could and should be given
to the students. Young men and young women do
not enter higher institutions of learning for the
sake of reviewing work previously disposed of, but
to acquire fresh knowledge and additional intellec
Sit up and speak proper! The educators are iu town.
And did Santa Claus have this weather in his pack?
Some of those bomb-towers in Europe would never win a

If you must swear at the weather get the profanity out

over a new leaf!
Governor 'l'ener has done a graceful act in appointing
Walter Hugus Gaither, of Allegheny, his private secretary
for the last four years, as a member of the Public Service
Commission to succeed the late Judge Ewing. Mr. Gaither
is qualified by years and experience in public life to enter
upon the important duties devolving upon the Public Service
Commission, and that he will succeed is the belief of his
Harrisburg friends. His newspaper training has given biin
a keen insight into human affairs, and his participation in
public activities in Washington and Harrisburg has added
to his valuable store of experience.

' Snuff-Taking Dying Out
p "Didn't have a call for a single
ounce of snuff this year," said a cigar
and tobacco dealer, "and that was
something strange, for up to last year
' I always had a couple of calls for
1 snuff, that sweet-scented nose-tickler
that once was used in such quantities.
. On reason, I suppose, is that I stopped
selling snuff during the year and that
may have become known to those who
3 formerly patronized me, but as a mat
f ! ter of fact there are few calls for
■ ! snuff, and it does not pay to keep it.
. | It dries out after a short time and has
to be thrown away. Time was when we
• ! kept several caunisters of snuff on tap,
' I and sold a groat deal of it, but its
. I use is gradually being discarded and
we have few calls for it. Once in a
great while somebody comes in and
wants a package of rappee, but the in*
' quirers nre generally from out of tho
• city. In fact snuff taking is dying out
i everywhere, and snuff-dipping is cou
. fined to the lower tier of counties, near
Maryland and Virginia. In the North
very little snuff is used and very few
tobacco factories make it. There is a
big snuff factory in Lancaster, but
that is the only one I kuow of. Being
, in the heart of the tobacco district, it
is conveniently located to grind up
scraps and tobacco fragments that
could not otherwise be used."

Demand For Snuff in Old Days
The late John Kepple, one of Har
risbuTg s best known tobacconists, was
an extensive dealer in snuff and other
old-time manufactured bi-products of
tobacco, and so was "Uncle" Davy
J a uss, who kept a tobacco store on
Market street, near the Square. Reg- !
ularly every week the snuff-takers i>b- ,
tained their weekly supply at these i
, old-time tobacco emporiums, and the j

On Tap For the Law-makers
There are men still residing in liar- J
riaburj who remember the interior of
the old Capitol back in the late fifties !
and uip into the sixties. For vears di-1
rectly inside of the Senate and House i
| doors, ou either side were small shelves
| on which rested small glass dishes con- 1
j taining snuff for the use of the Leg-j
j islators. It was a common sight to sec ,
| a dignified Senator, after divesting j
j himself of hat and coat and handing I
1 them to a page, to go into a room to
! the right of the Speaker, walk down
! the aisle to the snuff boxes, take a
generous pinch between thumb and j
forefinger, tilt back his head and pour !
the stuff —snuff —into his nostrils, and '

Vanished From the Capitol
Long ago the snuff boxes disappear-1
ed from the Capitol before the argu- j
ment that keeping! them in such a pub- j

| coming of the first Senate Librarian,
| who instituted numerous innovations i
j in the Senate chamber,* the snuff dis
j appeared, and nobody ever thought to j
j inquire why the practice was discon
; tinued. It is said that one doughty '
j Senator, who was disbarred from smok- ;
' ing on the floor of the Senate, sought I

j removed, on the ground that the State '
