2 BANK DEFICIT NOW MADE UP Shareholder* of the Bchaefferstown In stitution Have Paid the *43, 500 Needed SchaefTerstown, Pa., Feto. 16.—Now that all of the $42,500 deficit of tiiie Firat National Bank here has been made good, according to an official statement given out last evening inter est centres in the day on which busi ness will be resumed. Final payments on tiie $l7O assessment were made yesterday by the shareholders, who pre to take no small part in the selection by the boa.nl of directors of the new cashier. The list of candidates is said to include a number of likely men and it is the purpose of the directors to leap thetir own counsel until the time eomes for a <tecision. This will not be before official notice has been received from the Comptroller of the Currency of the day on wihuoh the bank can be re opened for business. Developments in the suicide of Levi Kline, the Bethel township auctioneer and farmer, whose body was found at daybreak Sunday hanging from a cheat nut tree near his home, a mile and a half from Mount Zion, show that he was in no way connected with D. B. Kiefer, the Middletown horse and cat tle dealer, financially. It was declared yesterday at the Fredericksburg National Bank that the several notes it holds, aggregating a comparatively small amount. are Kline's personal paper, all of which is amply secured. It was denied yesterday that the mysterious letter Kline received on Sat urday had anything to do with his bank business, and Kline's friends say his chief source of worry was a report that he had paid too much money for his re cent purchase of Bethel township land. Binner's will was probated yester day at Lebanon and letters taken out bv the widow, who is the sole bene ficiary.

Sulli van, 1831 Market street, president of the 'Pennsylvania State Teachers' League, members of the society are pre paring to tight for the passage of the proposed teachers' pension law and the minimum wage bill at the present ses sion of the Legislature. The pensioning of incapacitated teachers has been endorsed by the State Educational Association. The minimum salary bill proposes to fix the smallest, salaries a teaoher can get at $45 and $65 a month, according to the condi tions.

Sprecher about fifteen months ago used I 145 pounds of dynamite in his quarry for a blast, which shook houses for miles around. That a large amount of stone was loosened is shovsn by the fact i that the stone crusher used from that blast 1.000 perches of stone and 100 or more perches remain yet to be crushed.

($ |£ ~ ______ • " ""* """ 1 -''' . , pany will present to-night in the thea j tro beautiful the great William anil i Dusten Farnum success, "The Littlest ! Rebel." The story is a beautiful one, | dealing with the war between the ; North and South. The production is a sumptuous one and the electrical ef fects dazzling. Tho great battle sieue in the third act is one that will be with yoi. for years to come. 80 realisbu' and forceful are t.he lines of this play that it is considered the greatest mili tary play ever written. Adv.* "The Stranger" Wilton Lackaye knew a good thing when he saw it and for three years Btarred in "Tho Stranger," to be giv en to-morrow afternoon. The storv deals with the winning of love and business success by the man who *as born nameless in the poor house and who, by going to N'ew York as a boy, found the road to success and fortune. He returns to the home of his boyhood to find the evidence to clear the "name of his mother. He becomes interested in the little southern city, standing by the path of progress," wistful, yet nfraid. He determines to briug "the spirit of progress there, and while doing so wins the love of a southern belle. Just how all this it done takes columns to tell and seeing is by far better than reading, so you are invited to be pres ent at the first presentation on Wed nesday afternoon. Adv-.* "The Reformer" Does Billy Sunday want SSOO to use for himself or to turn over to some eharityt This is the sum that Mr. ■■ f t ' \ Y'* ' • , HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, TUESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 16, 1915, Champlin has offered to Mr. Sunday if he will i'ttend any performance of the great play that set all Boston talking. Sunday advised keeping away from theatres. 'Mr. Champlin asks you to come Wednesday night and guarauteos that the reformer has a sermon of Mr. Sunday lashed to the mast. A play that calls a spade a spade and appeal's to the masses is this drama. One of the greatest and strongest plays 011 the stage to-day. The story that is never told in the papers, nut one that you must come to eee if you wish to learn ! about is "The Reformer." The doors of the theatre will be locked at 8.20 | Wednesday night. No one will be ad- j mitted after that time. Adv.* Twilight Sleep Talks Many notable achievements and dis coveries hove beiMi credited to the twentieth century, but probably the one which has t'he most far-reaching effects upon the human race and which will be of the greatest benefit to women espe cially is the discovery of what is now universally known in this country as "Twilight Sleep." This condition of the mind and body is produced by a drug known as " Bcopolaaain " and its proper application and use so as to rob th*t holiest of all womanly functions, namely, the bringing into ttiis world of a new life, of its pain and suffering, has been perfected by Professors Gauss and Krt)nig in the city of Freiburg, Germany, at tihe " Fraiien-Klinik," or woman's hospital, there. Two "Twi light Sleep" mothers who are enthusi astic over the new treatment in child birth will talk to women only on the I subject at the Majestic theatre Mon day afternoon. Adv.* Raymond Hitchcock Raymond Hitchcock, everybody's fa vorite comedy .cut-up, he of the sub terranean voice and otherwise comic personality, will come to the Majestic next Tuesday evening. Mr. Hitchcock has a new vehicle upon which to dis port his engaging presence this season. It is called "The Beauty Shop," a mu sical comedy from a triumvirate of pens wielded by Chunning Pollock, Rennold Wolf and Charles J. Gebest. Mr. Hitchcock has been presenting "The Beauty Shop" in New York and rej orts from that city as to the -play's merits are most favorable. The play ran for many months at the Astor thea tre, 6n Broadway, to the largest patron age ever accorded this Broadway fa vorite. It goes without saying that Messrs. Cohau and Harris, Hitchcock's managers, have surrounded him with a tine company, which includes an at tractive chorus of singing and dancing artists. Every member of the original company will bo with "The Beauty Shop" wherf that delightful novelty comes to town. Adv.* At the Orphoum The Orpheum has a Valentine show this week. If that means an Unusual show, it applies all right, but it ovgfot to have a title to brand it much above the average. And its merit is not alone due to tike presence of the old favor ites, Van and Schen«k, who, of course, are always excellent, but because the best big headliner ever seen at the Or- pheum is there. And then there isn ? t a dull moment to be crammed in any of the otther acts of the bill. But the headliner called '"Home Again," to quote the recent issue of "Variety," the leading theatrical publication," is ■ the 'best big act- variety holds. Or pheum goers who viewed the produc tion yesterday were of this opinion, and there are reasons to believe that tihe news, of the current offering will spread. "Home Again" is unusual because of the size and general excellence of the cait, because of not only pretty girls, 'but really clever girls, because of the four scenes ot picturesque scen ery and, last, but not least, because it has a cleverly thought out plot that is out of the ordinary and capably played. "Home Again" is funuv, it is tuneful, and it is spectacular. Van and Sc'henck, the monarchs of harmony, are here in new songs and new fun and they walked away with their customary laurels. They who know the popularity of t)his team know just how much that is. Darrell and Conway offer a novel somedy skit with singing; Bill Pruett, tihe Cowboy Carupo, pleased immensely; Mr. and Mrs. Fraak Gilmore, late fea tures of the New theatre, New York, offer an interesting comedy drama called "Too Much Extravagance," and, in fact, each act 01 the current show is entertaining pnd clever. Adv.* At the Colonial It is needless to say that the comedy hit of the Colonial's career is now on view at that playhouse. It is at loast needless to say this to the army of amusement seekers who viewed this name screeching comedy when Sam iVfann and company presented it at the Orpheum some few years ago. "The New Leader" takes its name from tho title character in the sketch. He is the man in the orchestra pit and the other members of the company are in vaudeville acts, coming in for their Monday morning rehearsal. It, of course, is a "small time' theatre and the comedy is immense. The manage ment declares that "The New Leader" is the most costly attraction ever pre sented at the Colonial. There is not the slightest deviation in the excellence of the supporting acts. 'All of them are up to the recent standard estab lished at the Colonial. Adv.* i A WELL AND A POET And an Unanswerable Argument in a Suit at Law Among the many anecdotes told of Joseph Viktor von Scheffel, the Ger man poet and novelist, the following from Tagliche Rundschau is one of the 'most amusing: In a place where Scheffel once lived there was a lack of good drinking wa ter. One day a well driver in the neighborhood proposed that the poet allow him to drive a deep well for him. Scheffel accepted his offer, but only on condition that after the water had been drawn it be found drinkable. The well driver completed his work, but all that the pump would deliver was a thick yellow liquid, so the poet refused to pay for the work. Finally the matter was brought be-1 fore t>he court, and the poet and well driver stood side by side before the judge to present their respective cases. Both argued their sides so well that the magistrate was plainly puzzled to know which was actually right in the matter. At length, wearv of tho affair, Scheffel said: "Weil, I'll give in and pay for the well and the court expenses, too, hut on one condition. My oppon ent shall, before our eyes, take a drink, of t>he water from the well in ques tion. " The poet then drew from his hip pocket a flask of dirty yellow wa ter and, after extracting the cork, passed it over to the well driver. One glance was enough. He thrust the bot-) tlo aside with a disgusted look and strode out of tho courtroom with an angry growl. The Boy's Idea "Pa?" '' Y e>p.''
