It. is said that the Keatiug Wheel
Co. Middletown, Conn., desire a
gocld agent in Middleburgh. As the
Keating is known the world over as
one! of the finest and easiest running

It is stated by a New York ex
change that a girl there kneads
bread with her gloves on, but that is
no newB to us. We need bread with
our boots on ; we need bread with
our pants on and if our friends who
are so much in arrears don't pay us
soon, we will need bread withot any
thing on. In faot, to be well breed,
is to provide us with the means to
obtain bread. Seel
AU wheelmen shall write at onoe
to their Senator, Hon. Ed. M. Hum
mel, Setinsgrove, Pa. and Represen
tative, Hon. Chas. W. Herman, Mid
dleburgh, Pa. to favor Senate Good
Roads Bill No. 0 but to do all they
can against a tax upon bicycles. If
we are ever to have better roads you
must act now or wait two long years
and continue riding and driving
through mud after every rain. Sit
right down and write the letter and
help the cause along.

Look Out tor Him,
We are told that an agent is work
ing the picture totem: again in the
county. He wii- ; ' onr.- town last
Thursday nit d stopped with
Gabriel Beaver. He did not register,
but paid his supper, lodging and
breakfast in advance. He travelled
toward Paxtonville Friday. Before
ne takes an order to enlarge a pio
ture he requires 60 cents cash-in-ad
vance. He promises to do bin wnrlr
for loss than half what other firms
require. We have beon told of 3
different families that cave himor-
dors for 10 pictures. Fifty cents in
advance was required on each pic
ture. It would not bo richt to call
this fellow a fraud because he has
promised to deliver the crayon port
raits May 1st. Until Mar first he
may bo elsewhere, but we don't
know where. Mrs. Howard Sham
bach near Paxtonville refused to
give the fellow an order and advisod
the fellow to leave. The picture man
gave receipts for all money paid him.
He Higned his name as "Looner".
One receipt was dated Lock Ha
ven, another Williamsport, while ho
told Gabriel Beavor that he was
from Ridgway.
We do not know what this fellow
intends to do but other chaps who
require CO cents a picture in advance
have never turned up and it is al
ways safe never to pay in advance to
a stranger. We have advised our
readers against this 50 cents-iD-ad-vance
picture business and if they
will not take warning it is not our
fault. Don't order any pictures or
anything else unless you know the
people or refuse to pay anythiug un
til delivered in a satisfactory man
ner. Reliablo firms are willing to do
Moved to Sunbury.
C. C. Seebold, ex Treasurer of
Snyder county, this, week moved to
Sunbury. Snyder county and espec
ially Middleburg loses a most enter
prising citizen. He has faithfully
served Snyder county as Treasurer
for 3 years. For the past year he
has conducted the Washington
House and carried on the Sewing
Maohine and Piano business at this
place, Sunbury and Shamokin. His
business has grown so that he has
deoided to move to Sunbury to bet
ter look after his business. He has
always shown himself to be one of
the moat enterprising citizens al
ways lending a helping hand to ev
ery publie Movement. We part with
Mr. Seebold with regret, but what is
our loss is Sunbury's gain.
