At Weldo, Pa., there Is an apple
tree that has netted Its owner $20,
000. This amount has not come,
however, from the fruit of the tree,
but from the picture which the own

bearing Its blossoms and half opened
green leaves. The apple blossoms
became famous, and the pictures
were as good as sold before the ar
tist began his work.

In a test examination recently

college, seven could not name one jus
tice of the Supreme Court of the

only give the last name of one while
only one of the number was able to
give the full name of one. This
may be over drawn but It Is stated
for a fact. If true It proves that a
certain kind, of higher education does
not educate. Suppose our high
school pupils were put to this test.

In speaking of the election at
Hancock the Herald of that place
says: .After waiting, working and
praying for twenty-flye years, the
advocates of temperance were re
warded on Tuesday. The town went
no-license on all four liquor proposi
tions by the following majorities:
Saloon 283, wholesale 301, pharma
cist 240, hotels 98. When the result
became known late Tuesday night
there was great rejoicing. The
church and school bells were rung
and parties of men, women and
children paraded the streets giving
vent to their feelings of joy and
thankfulness in song and blowing of
h6rns. The law will become ef
fective Oct. 1, 1910.
Present Indications are that
p'ersons wishing first rate, plump,
juicy turkeys for their Thanksgiv
ing dinners will be obliged to pay
from 25 to 30 cents for every pound
thereof. Because of unfavorable
weather conditions ,the turkey sup
ply all over the country Is falling
short ot last year. In the principal
turkey centres, which aro Vermont,
Maryland and Virginia, the supply
has fallen off 30 or 40 per cent. In
addition to this tho weather has
been so warm that the meat has not
developed the way it should, and is
still soft and dry in a great number
of the birds, which havo survived
tho delicate ago and have grown to
their full size. Two weeks of dry,
cold weather, with a little frost,
would put the birds In fine condition
and harden tho meat considerably

Arthur Avery, formerly of Haw
ley, was badly burned about the
arms and head recently. The acci
dent was due to an explosion w,hlch
occurred while he was doing some
plumbing work at his home at
Brooklyn and It Is believed, was
caused by a leak' in one of the gas
pipes. His injuries, although very
painful, were not dangerous.
Because he spanked a 12-year-
old school boy with a shingle, Tim
othy Tripp, a district school master
in the town of Greene, N. Y., was
found guilty of assault and sentenced
to pay a fine of $20 or serve twenty
days in the county Jail. Tripp chose
the jail and began serving his sent
ence, but a few hours later he chang-
hls mind, paid the fine and was re
leased. Up in New England where
Thanksgiving Is observed with re
ligious zeal a new trial confronts
the people. Some years ago a strange
disease attacked and killed thous
ands ot pheasants and this year a
similar malady has destroyed hund
reds of flocks of turkeys. It is found
by scientists to be a parasite which
brings on an inflammation in birds
similar to appendicitis In men.

eight different townships.
John S. Kennedy, the modest
millionaire, who died of whooping
cough recently in New York, left
thirty million dollars to various
Presbyterian boards ranging In sums
from ten thousand to two and a half
million dollars. Did you ever hear
of him before his death? Think of
his unassuming ways as compared
with tho many showy moths who
flicker around the flame of wealth
and when they die leave no memory
of any deed well done or any char
ity usefully bestowed.
Burglars forcibly entered the
waiting room of the West Hawley
Erie station some time Thursday
evening or 'early Friday morning of
