In an accident at the operations
of the Muncy Lumber Com-
pany out from Salisbury, Wed-
nesday of last week. uw
Within the next two weeks
forty farm tractors will be at
the service of Pennsylvania
farmers, preparing their
ground for the summer crop of
corn, oats and potatoes. The
tractors will be sent into near-
ly evemy county in the state,
and charges for service will be
$3 per acre for plowing, $1.50
per acre for discing and 60
cents per acre for harrowing;
the farmer to find board and
lodging for operators. Secre-
tary of Agriculture Chas. E.
Patton at Harrisburg ‘has
charge of the service, assiste®
by the - county farm bureau
agent. To accomplish the same
amount of work that the forty
tractors with their eighty op-
erators will do it is estimated
320 farmers using 960 horses
steadily for sixty days would
be required.

operator was powerless to pre-
vent or to remedy. There is
just one linotype machinist in
town and he was called upon
but failed to respond to our

reason unknown to us. It
would perhaps have taken him |
two or three minutes to locate!
the trovhle and have it reme-|
died. We merely wish to add |
for the information of our
readers that the necessary ar-
rangements have been made
by which The Commercial will
be independent of assistance
from those who are not in sym-
pathy with the aims of this
publication, ‘and in future the
paper will be issued weekly in
spite of all that some ‘bigoted
opponents may have done or
may plan to do in their desper-
ation to cripple the people’s

Conscionetious objectors of
the Amish-Mennonite faith are
advised that they should be a
little ‘careful in expressing
their sentiments at times such
as the present. With quite a
number of our town boys at
the front and some more in the
training camps, people gener-
ally are not in a mood for en-
tertaining careless acts of the
kind that disgraced our com-
munity just recently, and noth-
ing is gained by creating re-
sentment in the mind of the
general public as such foolish
acts are bound to do at the
present time. It is granted
that people will have differ-
ent and conflicting points of
view in a country as great as
ours but at the same time judg-
ment should be used in the ex-
pression of personal opinions
unpopular sentiments, most es-
pecially in time of great stress
and tense public feeling.
