and one of Pennsylvania's most illustri
ous sons, who was born in Bethany
January 20, 1814, when that village was
the county-seat of Wayne. His mother
was a daughter of the pioneer James
Carr, of Canaan township. It is eml
ncntly proper that a monument to David
Wilmot should be erected by tho State

in Bethany where lie first saw. the light

whatever remedy or plan of treatment
he pleases, so long as it is for the relief

Health Commissioner Darlington, of
New York, has decided to offer two cows
of fancy breed as prizes for the best two
essays on the subject of "How Clean
and Wholesome Milk May Be Produced
at the Least Cost for the New York Mar
ket." The competition is open to farm
ers in all the States which contribute to
the milk supply of ,Ncw York city, which
includes a number of dairymen in
Wayne county. Here is a chance for
farmers Gammell, Norton, Perham and
other capable writers of this county to
add a couple of fine animals to their
herds. The only condition imposed on
competitors is that milk from their dairies
is sold in the New York market. Com
missioner Darlington says that he had
fallen on this plan with the hope that it
would furnish an incentive to dairy far
mers to take a greater interest in milk
producing from an economical as well as
a sanitary viewpoint.
