April 22—The name Greenville
township is a familiar name in the
southern part of Somerset county,
nestled along the Alleghenies is a
sturdy class of people, devoting their
enzrgies to farming and lumbering.
The timberland is being cleared off
ani large crops are raised, bearing
testimony to the energy and thrift of
the people of Greenville.
Pocahontas is the capital of the
township, which has a well stocked
store under the careful management
and courteous service of Mr. Yutzy.
Dr. F. E. Sass, takes care of the
sick of the town and the surrounding
country. Mrs. Wilson C. Paul, widow
of the most popular man the county
ever had, hascharge of the telephone.
The men generally of the village,
work at the Savage Fire brick works.
The town has one church, a Roman
Catholic mission.
About a mile from town in the
direction of Salisbury there are two
churches, known. throughout the
county as the Greenville churches.
That was the locality where for many
years the Lutheran and Reformed
congregations worshipped in a union
church. ‘Not many years ago the
congregations felt ' that each one
should carry’ on its own church work
and consequently there are now two
churches. The Lutheran church is a
handsome brick structure, which
would be a credit to a city congrega-
tion, while the Reformed congrega-
tion still worships in the old church.
That congregation is wrestling with
the difficult question, whether to
build on the old site or lcctite at Po-
cahontas. That question will even-
tually be decided.
There is alsoa Church of the Breth-
ern denomination in the township.
The schools of the township are up
to the average country schools. Dur-
ing the year, diphtheria and measles
were epidemic and as a consequence
the schools and churches had been,
closed and the schools will finish
somewhat later than usual. The peo-
ple are hospitable, and thrifty and.
the homes open and a cordiality is
always extended to the guests.

April 22—Glade City, a mile east of
Meyersdale, is a centre of the uni-
verse. The name would indicate that
it is the seat of a large population of
the thrifty sons and daughters of
Somerset county. The name Glade
City may be misleading. It is not
the centre of a large population, only
large in potentialities. Its centre is
at the cross roads, leading from Mey-
ersdale to Cumberland, and from
Berlin to the opposite direction. The
city is made up of about a dozen
houses; but to be accurate, there are
thirteen, and not one who lives there
is at all superstitious as to the num-
ber thirteen. The men are busy dur-
ing the day, working principally at
the brick works, clay banks, and in
the mines, while the women keep the
homes tidy, prepare the meals and
have charge of the domicile during
the day.
Glade City felt the effects of the
great engineering feat at Sand Patch,
when large sums of money were earn-
ed, and free spenders were engaged
in distributing it. The village can
boast of two stores; F. Swearman,
son Carl; Mrs. Will Hoiler and |

Washington, April 22—Howard
Elliot, President of the Northern Pa-
physical valuation of the properties
of his company. He was recently in
Washington and in conversation with
a friend he expressed the belief that
it would be desirable to have an
official valuation of the railroads.
He believes that it will clear the at-
mosphere greatly, and it will definite-
ly prove whether or not the railroads
are receiving adequate rates for the
service they give, and he is disposed
to think that it will result in a sur-
prise to the public in general by
showing that the railroads have re-
sources worth far more than the
nominal capitalization on which they
are required to earn interest.
F Members of Congress are showing
much interest in the progress of the
San Diego [Exposition. In general,
Congress feels that expositions are
valuable as public educators. They
induce many people to travel who
otherwise would not moye beyond
their own township. They offer es-
pecial inducements in the way of
lower fares, ingenious routes of trav-
el and moderate prices for entertain-
ment. Western Congressmen in par-
ticular feel that the San Diego Ex-
position will offer an opportunity for
advertising the achievements and
resources of the west, which is a rich
region yearning for willing hands to
develop it. President D. C. Collier
of the Exposition is a pioneer and
empire builder himself, and he fully
appreciates the need of our people,
more money, more brains, to bring
out the resources of the west. There
is room forall and independence for
all, If it did nothing more than to
introduce some thousands of people
te the opportunities that are await-
ing them, the San Diego Exposition
would be a great blessing to this
While everything is abustle and
alive in the west and especially at
San Diego where the Exposition is
building—in Washington there has
been little but marking time. Con-
gress is busy with the Tariff. That
is to say, the Democratic Caucus is
busy with it. Day after day for the
past two weeks the Caucus has
been wrestling with such problems
as free wool and free sugar. Any
day it may finish its work, but there
have been long heated debates be-
hind closed doors between the ad-
vocates of free wool and a wool tariff,
between those who want [free sugar
and the friends of a tariff on sugar,
and so on down the line ‘‘from agate
to zine.”
The developments indicate how
wise Chairman Underwood was when
he decided to let ‘‘the boys’ ‘‘blow
off steam’’ in the caucus and voice
all of their objections and protests
to various items in the bill before
sending it to the House. Through-
out it all Mr. Underwood held him-|
self well in hand, smilingly listened |
to the oratory on the floor, and final- |
ly when the time came, marshalled |
his forces and calmly voted down |
all objections, item by item, and the
bill—barring perhaps some trivial |
changes—stood at last just as it did |
when it was presented to the causes |
for its verdict. |
Through all of the tariff talk, the |
patronage fights, the reconstruction
of the governmental machinery, due |
to a change in party sgcendency,
there has been a lack of turmoil, |
excitement and uncertainty at the |
White House which has pleased
friends of President Wilson and pos-
sibiy surprised his opponents—for
enemies he seems to have none.
Whatever democrats may think, the
Republicans appear to agree that
the President is conducting himself
creditably, especially with respect to
the choice of men for public office:

[HC Wagons Are ough
ID you ever notice when one of
the wheels of your loaded wagon
dropped into a rut or bumped over
a stone how the seat springs gave
and rebounded, almost throwing
you off? That is an indication of the shock
and strain that the rigid spokes and axles have
to stand whenever the wagon is traveling over
a rough road or through a field. The IHC
wagons your local dealer sells
Weber New Bettendort
Columbus or Steel King
take these stresses and strains as a matter of
course. From neckyoke to tail board they are
built of selected, air-dried lumber, strong and
tough, bending to strains but coming back as
straight and true as ever when the load is
removed. Besides being tough, I H C wagons
are light running. The wheels have just the
right pitch and gather, and run true. All skeins
and skein boxes are paired. The running gear
is assembled by skilled workmen whose wages
depend as much on the quality as on the quan-
tity of the work they turn out. Consequently,
I H C wagons are practically all of the same
high standard of quality throughout.
Weber and Columbus wagons have wood
gears; New Bettendorf and Steel King have
steel gears. IH C local dealers sell the wagon
