The B. & O. has forsaken Johns-
town and the vision of a new pas-
senger and freight station, besides
other improvements entailing the ex-
penditures of many thousands of
dollars, has melted into thin air.
The mayor says the company is
‘“bluffing,’’ but be that as it may,
the fact remains that within the
past couple of weeks a large force
of workingmen iloaded up and ship-
ped away all material that has been
on the grounds for the construction
of the freight station on Baumer
street, and also ripped out the con-
crete forms and levelled the founda-
tions which had been partly con-
structed. It is also said that negoti-
ations are under way for the transfer
back to the original owners of the
property that had been purchased and
| Paid for as the site for the passen-
ger station. The mayor and council
want the B. & O. company to ele-
vate their tracks within the city
which the company stoutly
refuses to do, and now as a counter-
play the mayor has announced his
intention of taking steps to com-
pel the B. & O. company to vacate
their right-of-way from the New
Senate Hotel on Bedford street to
the southern city limits, claiming,
that the ground was filched from the
channel of the Stonyecreek. What
the outcome of the contest will be, TTY

Dei Deitcher Friend,
It is gratifying to learn from official
figures furnished by the bureau of the
census, at Washington, that in the en-
tire population of the United States
the percentage of illiteracy declined
from 10.7 to 7.7 in the decade from
1900 to 1910. The “decline among
children between the ages of ten and
fourteen years was especially notable,
the percentage of illiteracy being re- |
iduced from 7.2 to 4.1 in ten years. The
‘general decline of illiteracy marks the
‘improvement of educational opportu-
‘ties throughout the country, and this
improvement is most distinctly meas-
‘ured in comparing the children who
have just passed through the schools.
‘Generally speaking, each successive
generation in the United States shows
a smaller proportion of persons unable
to read and write and this proportion
is always lesast for the children from
ten to fourteen years of age. From
this it Is evident. that illiteracy is
considerably less for children than for
the aggregate population.—Manches-
