STATE TREASURER, Jeremiah A. Stober, of Lancaster. JURY COMMISSIONER, W. H. Bullock. OLD SOLDIERS' CANDIDATE. 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 flag." 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.

Hill, tho master railroad builder of America, is quoted as saying: "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 miles." 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. SPEAKERS FOR FARM SCHOOLS.

"Carriers are not required 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. Closing Acts in Baseball Drama.

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. CLOCKS BANISHED. Interfere With Thoughts on Eter nity. "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, wno is attending the conference, Bishop Neely Is a Philadelphia man. 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."

Apples in some of best or chards have improved very much within a few weeks, some trees showing full crops of good fruit. THEODORE DAY. Dyberry, Pa., Oct. 1, 1909. MEN OF UNIQUE CALLINGS. 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.
