It pays to read the advertisements
of enterprising home merchants.
They are the people who make it pos
sible to have conveniences right at
your door, so to speak.
A lawyer will give five minutes of
advice on any one topic, and charge
you $5 for it. An editor will give
you advice on a hundred different
topics and charge you but 5 cents for
it. And very often 5 cents given to
an editor will save ?5 given to a law
yer. We heard on the street the other
day of a man who claimed he was
too poor to take his home paper but
all the same he read a notice in one
of our county papers telling how to
prevent a horse from slobberjng, and
Bent ?1.50 for .recipe. When the
51.50 worth of information came it
said: "Teach your horse how to spit."
An exchange tells of a newspaper
reporter who interviewed thirty suc
cessful business men and found that
all of them when boys had been gov
erned strictly and frequently thrash
ed. He also interviewed thirty loaf
ers and learned that twenty-seven of
them had been "mamma's darling,"
and the other three had been reared
by their grandmothers.
Read the announcements of your
merchants in this issue. Many a
dollar has been saved by a careful
perusal of a merchant's ad. When
a business man advertises for your
patronage he not only has a lino of
goods that "speaks" but there may
be some article or articles listed that
you desire and that it may be advan
tageous to buy at this time.
It is an old saying that the Ameri
can people love to be humbugged.
We are reminded of this Dy seeing
agents canvassing our county with
packages of dry goods. These pack
ages are sold for various prices. Peo
ple forget how extremely low all
classes of goods are at the present
tlnvo and fall easy victims to the
traveling humbugs. They couiu buy
a much better class of goods of our
honest home merchants for less mon
ey. These city sharks travel through
the country and make a fortune out
of shoddy goods. A word to the wise
should be sulllcient. The goods they
sell are dear at any price.

Company's Miners Resume Work.
Wllkesbarre, Pa., June 0. Practical
ly ail of the 12,000 striking mine work
ers of the Pennsylvania Coal company
have returned to work. The remaining
few who objected to the terms of the
settlement, finding they were In the
minority, were prevailed upon to re
turn to work today so as to make the
ending of the strike complete.
The miners' union executive board
has called for a sessldn with commit
tees from each of the nine collieries at
Plttston tomorrow night. At this meet

grievances of the miners they repre
sent, and then General Manager W. A.

There is great rejoicing among the
business men of Plttston, Duryea and

We climbed a narrow passage and
were soon standing in the tiny sanct
uary of the Samaritans, a building
which would not hold more than 100
people. Although the sect has wor
shipped in this city for 2,500 'years,
it only numbers about 150 at this
time. It Is a close corporation, so
the house Is large enough, especially
as the women do not enter the house
of worship. Like the Moslems, the
men remove their shoes on entering
the sanctuary. But they did not re
quire it of us.
While we were looking at the
simple furniture of the temple the
High Priest Yacub appeared. Ho is
a man of intelligent, sensitive count

They had Just returned from their
annual Passover ceremonial on the
top of Mount Gerazim, where they
kill and eat the paschal lamb with
all the primitive simplicity, or per

The Samaritans are like the Jews
in their religious worship to a de
; gree. But they accept only the first
five books of the Bible as sacred.
They possess an ancient copy or the
Penteteuch which they say Is 3574
years old. The young men took from
its green silken cover this ancient
a brass case. The outside of the case
has tho symbolic furniture of tho
Temple of tho Jews engraved upon it,
tho seven branched candlestick, tho
trumpets of gold, tho altar of Incense,
nnd all the rest. They also show an
