Two fields for speculation: What
is the Colonel going to do? What Is
the Colonel not going to do? Was
ever an American summer so fraught
with portential possibilities as this
one of 1910!
We ascertain from the Johnstown
Democrat that the Pennsylvania
Democracy is about to split. Is
there enough of it for anything like
that? Houston (Tex.) Post.
of Johnstown speak up betimes and
measure that "split" for SAM
BAILEY of Texas! WTe read the
Flood City editor's paper pretty reg-1
ularly, and from this distance it
sure does look to us as though
Editor WARREN WORTH thought
the split between GRIM men and
BERRY men, to say nothing of the
very pronounced defection on the
part of MUNSON men, bade fair to
make the 1912 Democratic vote in
the Keystone state even smaller
than ever.
"Scratch a reformer and you will
find an office-seeker either past or
present" has become almost a pro
verb. For several years a certain
brand of "reformers" in this state
have been trying to Impose upon
the people their panaceas for the
correction of all evils, but the game
is so manifestly selfish that the third
party movement has degenerated
Into a Joke. Democrats may be ex
pected to stand by their party, and
no considerable number of Republi
cans will be led astray by the talk
of the men who, having had all the
honors of the Republican party and
many of its emoluments, are at this
time trying to destroy the organi
zation which gave them the only
prominence and profit they ever
Scranton's select council has gent
ly turned down as impracticable the
curfew law that was wanted by an
organization in that city. Opinions
of good men in good and bad cities
differ as to the effectiveness of a
curfew law, but most progressive
cities do not want one. Their law
making bodies reason, and wo be
lieve correctly, that tho lad who is
bandboxed in his tender years Is the
fellow who will make up for lost
time when he gets beyond curfew
age. As for Scranton in particular,
the bulk of tho liquor dealors aro
more careful today than they ever
were before about selling booze to
boys or permitting them to hang
around while their elders take liquid
nourishment, and a great many of
the immoral Joints havo been put out
of business. Scranton Is not such a
wicked city. Scranton is a whole lot
cleaner morally than Wilkes-Barro.
In the latter city it might bo an
excellent experiment to try sending
the boys homo at 9 o'clock at night.
Wilkes-Barre, wide open and will
ing to bo bo, needs a curfew a great
deal more than Scranton at her
present gait will ever need one.
Oyster Bay is now easily visible
to tho naked eye, but tho first citizen
of that delectable Nassau county
settlement still requires six differ
ent kinds of glasses for the manifold
occupations of his existence, ,and
may take unto himself a seventh
pair when that new Roosevelt buzz
wngon lately garaged at Sagamore
Hill gets nicely to going.
Now the fight Is over nnd Mr.
been knocked into a cocked hat by
general concensus of opinion on the
part of ring officials, trainers, sport
ing editors nnd other Johnnles-on-the-spot
who should have the situa
tion well under their hats seems to
be that Mr. JEFFRIES knew it all
and wouldn't pay any attention to
tho warnings thnt were given him
by JIM CORBETT, not to mention
BILLY MULDOON nnd other ring
men who actually knew whnt they
were talking nbout. JACK JOHN
SON alone did not bent JIM JEF
FRIES. The swelled head of tho
defeated man helped like blazes.
That disgusting battering match on
the sage brush plains of Nevada will
have one stimulating effect if It
teaches a few hundred young Ameri
can boys not to think they are the
whole outfit and in so doing keeps
them from getting hard knocks
businesswise that humiliate even
more than a bloody good licking in
the prize ring.
Says the Harrisburg Telegraph:
Champ Clarke is a fine example of
the optimistic Democrat. He gets
much fun out of his mid-summer
predictions, which are invariably
frostbitten in the fall.
But he won't loosen up any of that
Democratic optimism at the Water
Gap's Old Home week If he gets to
it. As already advertised by the
Gap reunion's very industrious and
pretty competent press agent, he will
not lisp one solitary syllable of poli
tics when he mounts the stump
no, platform at the prettiest cross
roads In his friend PALMER'S Con
gressional district. He will talk on
that broad, safe, comfortable and
non-committal subject . of "Good
Citizenship," which does not oblige
him to say in so many words that
Pennsylvania will send a solid Dem
ocratic delegation to Washington in
November or that JOE FOLK, the
man from the Hon. CHAMP'S own
Missouri, is bound to run through
the 1912 electoral college like JACK
JOHNSON through the sore ribs of
once, at least, the rainbow rooter
from the peat bogs of Pike county
Is going to be uncharacteristically
The Bellefonte Watchman, one of
those optimistic Democratic sheets
that can always see a 200,000 Re
publican state electing a Democratic
governor by 100,000 and handing
its electoral vote to the Peerless
Pleader of the Platte by another
100,000, lets out its lungs like this:
It might have been a lot of fun
had the third party promoters suc
ceeded in getting Gifford Plnchot to
run for governor of Pennsylvania.
Had ho gone into the hustings in
this state, Roosevelt would probably
have taken the stump for him and
Roosevelt would at least have put a
lot of ginger into the campaign.
Tho esteemed Watchman pre
sumes too much. Mr. ROOSEVELT
Is still with his party. Mr. ROOSE
VELT would be decidedly out of his
element In any effort to help his
personal friend, GIFFORD PINCHOT,
heat out JOHN K. TENER, the very
able and fairly nominated candidate
of the Republican convention, and
elect WEBSTER GRIM, a man who
knows by this time that tho best
thinkers of his own party do not
want him. Imagine even Mr. PIN
CHOT asking Mr. ROOSEVELT to
come over and help him in Mace
donia! But then, why fret and worry
needlessly? Mr. PINCHOT has
taken all the crimp out of tho in
cipient boom that was started for
him by n few soreheads by saying ho
has no legal residence in Pennsyl
vania. Ho shoots and fishes in Pike
county now and then, hut he votes
thoro never. Ho votes in Now York.
His home, onco in Connecticut, is
now In Now York, For tho sake of
a bright though misguided con
temporary wo nro sorry tho
situation desired by tho Watchman
cannot bo brought about, but it
seems to bo clean beyond all politi
cal possibility. A third ticket thoro
may bo if anybody is green, enough
to dig up tho money to finance It,
but tho third ticket .cannot claim
Mr. PINCHOT for its own.

The Scranton councilman who
urges straw hats for the city's po
licemen during July and August Is
a sane man and on the right track.
Wo hope he wins his point. Why
shouldn't a cop be comfortable?
Compelled to wear their coats but
toned, the policemen of any city suf
fer enough without being forced to
wear the head-sweating helmet all
through the torrid period. By all
means let the Scranton "finest" have
cool lids for the summer. And let
them loosen their coats for a couple
of hours in the heat of the day. It
is efficiency, not looks, that Is de
manded from the man In blue and

perament which of late has been
raising Ned with the nation ought
to bo sent to the back seat long

The "Jolly fnrmer" is no fiction
these days. Everything seems to be
going In the direction of tho agricul

note the gathering of stupendous
crops of hay. The harvest bids fair
to be a record-breaker, and hay
brings good prices these days. Com
ing nearer home, a glance at the
fields of grain as one passes through
the country districts shows that, un
less something very serious inter
feres, rye and oats will come to the
ripening season in excellent condi
tion. The rainy spring, followed by
the warm weather of the past few
weeks, has done the trick nicely.

Clean up days in Bellefonte re
sulted in such a general effort in
cleaning up nnd clearing out that
the ladles who had the work In
charge have cause to feel greatly
gratified. There was almost uni
versal compliance with their request
and, except in a few cases, all of the
residents of the town accepted the
notice from the respective commit
tees in the proper spirit. It was to
be expected thdt a few would be im
pertinent. There are always some
down on a community and they
are the ones who must seize on Just
such an opportunity to express their
disgruntled thoughts or make
sraartles of themselves. Bellefonte
Information from Washington tells
that the ranks of the army that de
fended the Union In the great strug
gle of the Civil war is rapidly pass
ing away. At present about 90
names a day are dropped from the
pension rolls. This average is equiv
alent to about 2700 deaths a
month, or about 32,000 annually
among Federal survivors of the
Civil war carried on tho pension
lists. There are no pensioners of
tho Revolution or war of 1812 liv
ing. The last survivor on the pen
sion rolls of the Revolution was
Daniel F. Bakeman, who died
at Freedom, N. Y April 5,
1860, aged 109 years. The last
survivor of tho Revolution on the
rolls lived for 86 years after the
close of that war. If there is any
soldier of the civil war who will
llvo 86 years after the close of the
conflict in which ho fought, his
name will remain on tho pension
rolls until 1951. Tho last survivor
of tho war of 1812 lived 90 years
after tho end of that struggle. Ac
cording to these Instances, the
country may be paying a pension to
tho Inst soldior of the Civil war in
1955. Archbald Citizeu.

Low Temperature In Breeding Sea
son Killed Eggs, Says Commis
sioner. Owing to an unfortunate spell of
weather for hatching fish that wbb
unprecedented in the history of tho
state department of fisheries, tho
black bass work has been n failure.
"Cold weather In May," explains
Fish Commissioner Median, "is re
sponsible for the loss of our black
bass supply. When the temperaturo
of water falls to 55 degrees bass
cease to spawn. At 50 degrees tho
eggs that may havo been deposited
on the next die, and at 45 degrees
any young fish that havo been hatch
ed will die.
"This year the nesting season was
about four days later than In 1908
or 1909, coming as late as May 30 In
the northern hatcheries. There was
an unusual quantity of nests discov
ered by field men In Susquehanna
and Wayne counties, and a larger
percentage than ordinarily in tho
stato hatcheries.
"C. H. Nesly of Wayne county
had two lakes in his charge. In one,
called Righten's lake, there were
250 nests, with 250,000 fish In sight.
He got 12,000. Of my own 15G
nests, I had 52,000 fish. This un
expected loss upsets our wholo
scheme of stocking streams and oth
er waters of the state for the year,
as far as black bass are concerned."
