The old soldiers of Pennsylvania
heartily are supporting the Repub
lican ticket this year. They realize
that it is a good ticket and that it
ought to be elected. But there is
an especial reason for their loyalty
to the Republican party in this
campaign. One of the candidates
was selected from their ranks. J.
A. Stober has the respect and confi
dence of his comrades in the Grand
Army as he has of everybody who
knows him. In nominating him for
the important office of State Treas
urer, the Republican party gladly
recognized the men who fought for
the nation's life. At the Harris
burg convention Major M. H. Gherst,
former Department Commander of
the Grand Army, told the delegates
what the veterans of Pennsylvania
think of Mr. Stober.
"His name and reputation aro
synonyms of honor and integrity,"
said Major Gherst. "His record in
the past is the best guarantee of the
future. If elected to the great of
fice of State Treasurer, he will bring
to the discharge of its responsible
duties that same courage that im
pelled him to lay aside the pursuits
and avocations of a peaceful life in
the country's darkest "hour, put on
the uniform of his government, pre
pared to follow the fortunes of his
The veterans of Pennsylvania will
Agree that every syllable of that
statement is true. Mr. Stober will
have the earnest support of his com
rades and their sons, because he is
worthy of their support. The coun
try owes the soldiers of the Civil
War more than it can ever pay them,
a debt of gratitude. Through the
Republican party it has done much
in acknowledgment of this obliga
tion. The Republican Party in
Pennsylvania and in the nation is
the old soldiers' party. When the
veterans of Pennsylvania go to the
polls in November, they will perform
the agreeable duty of honoring one
of their own number, as well as vote
for a continuance of good govern
ment in this State.

Tho Small Farm.
In tho course of a recent address
James J. Hill, tho master railroad
builder of America, is quoted as
"What we must come to in this
country is tho smaller farm with a
more intensive agriculture. We
support, In round numbers, 90,000,
000 people on 3,000,000 square
miles of land. We should be able to
support 150 per square mile as eas
ily aB 30, and then we should have
hut a fraction of the density of
population of Denmark, with 167 in
habitants per square mile; Holland,
with 448, or our own State of
Rhode Island with 407 in iy00."
Sevcnty-flvo Years Between Visits.
Frank E. Seagrave, the astrono
mer whose calculations relative to
Halley's comet have attracted wide
spread attention, announces that
the comet In May 19, 1910, will
reach the same plane as the earth
in its orbit, and the tail of the comet
will sweep across this plane. Earth
and comet will meet on the same
plane, but not In the same path.
There will be 13,000,000 miles be
tween the two.
The fan of the comet's tall will
spread out, and for a short period
the earth will find itself swept by
"star dust" brought from many mil
lions of miles beyond the farthest
known comet.
"There need be no scare over the
approaching event," said Mr. Sea
grave. "The end of the earth will
not come. The nearest the comet
can come to the earth is 6,235,000
Since the recent return of Hal
ley's comet Professor Frost and Pro
fessor Sherburne W. Burnham have
been indefatigable in following Its
course. Burnham was the first to
obtain actual sight of the heavenly
body through the big forty-inch
telescope at the Yerkes observatory,
in Wisconsin.

adopted by tho Postofllce depart

to deliver mail at residences where
vicious dogs are permitted to run
at large. Persons keeping such
dogs must call at the poatofflcc.
The Farmer Was Mr. Right.
The other day a merchant saw a
farmer receiving goods at the station
from a mall order house. The goods
were in his line and the same had
been carried in his store for years.
He approached the farmer and said:
"I could have sold you every article
you have there for less money than
you paid the Chicago house and
saved you the freight besides."
"Then why on earth didn't you say
so," answered the farmer. "I have
taken the local papers for years, and
have never seen a line about your
selling these goods. The Chicago
house sent advertising matter to
me, asking for my trade, and they
got it." Exchange.

Seeing Morgan.
Idlers in the financial district have
discovered a new interest in life.
They exhibit it every afternoon,
about four o'clock. It Is to stand
in front of the office of J. P. Morgan
& Co. and wait for the financier to
come out, enter his steel clad auto
mobile and be driven away.
Mr. Morgan resumed his daily vis
its to his office recently. Since then
it has been his habit to reach the
banking house of which he is the
head early every afternoon and re
main until about four o'clock. A
few moments before his departing
time his automobile, which is a large
machine painted red, with a limou
sine body, backs up to the curb and
awaits Mr. Morgan's coming.
Instantly the vehicle is identified
by some Idler, who pauses, lights a
cigarette and starts in to wait and
get a glimpse of the noted financier.
He is joined by another, then an
other, and then a few stenograph
ers, who have escaped from their
offices early, also stop and chew their
gum while they wait. A few mes
senger boys out with rush telegrams
add their presence to the rapidly
growing crowd, and soon there is a
group that almost attains to the
dignity of a mob.
At length the crowd is rewarded.
Mr. Morgan appears at the door.
gazes in a surprised sort of a way
over the crowd, then hurries to his
machine and is rapidly carried
away. Then the crowd disperses to
meet again on the following day.
Interfere With Thoughts on Eter
"No more clocks for Methodist
Episcopal churches in Ohio. They
are a nuisance. They keep the
minds of people and pastors in a
stew for more than two hours each
Sunday. Therefore, no more clocks."
This, in effect, is tho substance o'f
a1 resolution passed at 'the confer
ence of. Ohio Methodist ministers
at Jackson. It was prompted by
ana passed for Bishop B. Neeley,

but has been stationed for many
years at Buenos Ayres, in South'
America. He told the ministers
they never would know what "quiet
blessedness" Is until they get rid of
tho clocks In their churches."
"People are always turning around
to see what time it is, and the speak'
er naturally follows their eyes and
sees what time it is," said BishoD
Neeley. "Therefore, I have put
them out of places where I speak,
ana una it a relief."

Only One Mender of Wooden In
dians in Jev York.
In New York there are men who
work at occupations in which no one
else is engaged. Their callings are
unique in the strict sense of the
word. Each nerson so emnlnvpil
enjoys the distinction of making his
living in a pursuit followed by no
one but himself.
One of them Is an old man who
repairs the few remaining cigar
store Indians in use by old-fashioned
dealers in side streets. At one
time he owned a wood carver's shop
where these figures were turned out
in large numbers. He also did a
thriving business in making eccles
iastical figures for churches and
carved figureheads for the prows of
ships. Part of his work consisted
in carying decorations for circus
wagons. At one time he had 120
men working for several months on
designs to fill a contract with a
celebrated showman.
This man. who is nrobablv the Inst
of tho old time wood carvers mak
ing a specialty of effigies for tobac
conists, churches and yacht owners,
can still be seen in his Brooklyn
shop rounding out fifty years of ex
pert workmanship, but he has not
carved a wooden figure for ten years
or more. He only repairs images
made by himself or others years ago
which find their way back to his
bench for an overhauling. The rea
son for the falling off of this occu
pation is that to-day such figures
are all cast in metal.
Then there is an artist employed
by Brooklyn's only manufacturer of
comic valentines. For twenty years
he has put in all his time drawing
the grotesque caricatures received
by thousands on February 14tU
from friends who do not lose the
opportunity to remind them of their
frailitles and defects. In the em
ploy of the same firm is a versifier
whose vitriolic lampoons appear un
der the pictures drawn by other men
and help them to make the record
ing angel work overtime on St. Val
entine's day. These two are kept
busy the year round and have the
field to themselves. .
In a certain New York publishing
house a man sits at his desk from
9 in the morning until 5 In the
afternoon piecing together sets of
three dime novels for the purpose
of making one continuous story for
publication in book form. Not alone
is he the only man in New York who
works at this peculiar form of lit
erary endeavor, but probably ho is
Is the only man In the world earn
ing a living this way.
In another publishing house is a
man who does nothng but make
legible the handwriting of a corps
of regular authors on Its staff.
These men for fifteen years have
been contributing a weekly story
for boys measuring about forty
thousand words, and either cannot
or will not learn to ubo a typewrit
er. Such a enormous output meanB
rapid writing even on a machine,
and the great speed required to get
so much out on time by long hand
results in bad copy.
The compositors were obliged to
work slowly and it became a ques
tion of getting new typesetters or
new authors. The latter course
would hardly do, as authors with
desirable sustaining powers and
dynamic force cannot be picked up
on every literary buBh, and there
was no use of firing the long'suffer
ing compositors. Therefore tho
publishers hit upon the scheme of
having a man familiar with the
scrawl of these high pressure word
slingers go over each manuscript to
round out incomplete o'b, defective
t's and perform other necessary sur
gical operations in chirography to
keep the compositors from throwing
a fit at every other word.
The only girl operator of wireless
telegraphy In New York and possi
bly In the world at present sits on
the roof of a Fifth avenue hotel in
a little office sending messages
through tho air to ships at sea. She
is only 21 and her employers say
she Is superior to many men tele
graphers. While the majority of
the messages coming and going
through her hands are commercial,
some are of a tender nature. Some
of these are addressed to her, as
she Is reported to have a wireless
romance. Her fiance is said to be
an operator on one of tho big steam
ers, and when his ship gets within
talking distance, greetings are ex
changed between, them.
Two coopers make a specialty of
packing money for shipment for New
York banks, and have no competi
tors. For twenty years these men
have been putting gold and silver
coin in ensks for their customers to
send abroad. They also pack preci
ous metal in three gallon kegs for
the Sub-Treasury every time it wants
to ship money to interior polntB.
During the twenty years the two
coopers have handled something
like 12,000,000,000, and in a single
year have made shipments for their
clients amounting to $200,000,000.
Probably no other two men in New
York have ever packed so much
money to be sent away in kegs and
casks as if the coin were just ordi
nary shipments of pickles or break
fast food.
