Candidate TENER made a favor
able impression upon the antlered
brethren at the Elks' national con
ventlon In Detroit, just the way he
did on the Republican state conven

There is much to commend this
growing sentiment In favor of a pen
sion for the old miners. The soldier
who engages in hazardous war is
remunerated, though poorly, for his
services from the public treasury,
but the fellow who toils a lifetime
in the bowels of the earth for a
pitance too often becomes an object
of charity or a burden on his family
when disease or old age ends his
usefulness. The number of miners
incapacitated for work at an age
when they should be in their prime
shows the unhealful conditions that
surround them at work. Scores are
broken down, afflicted with miners
asthma and chronic rheumatism, be
fore arriving at 40. The more char
itable among the mine bosses per
mit them to work at slate-picking in
the breakers, but others do not want
them in any capacity. Tho broken
flown miner ought to get at least
his house rent as partial payment
for the permanent Impairment of
bodily condition ho has received in
an occupation not all able-bodied
men are willing to undertake.
In regarding childhood we too

Now look here. Who ever said a
word about the American parent
looking down on his children? He
did that back In the old Puritanical
days, but ho does not do It now. Too
often ho stands meekly and abjectly
by while tho kid with more "book
learning" systematically proceeds to
look down on tho old woman nnd
tho old man. Tho only other looking
down wo havo collided with In a
somewhat extenslvo excursion among
our confiding fellow countrymen is
tho determined disposition of tho
typical man of this period to look
down on the men that profit by his
payroll, or on tho fellow whoso ready

tho July bargain sale, or whoso fam
ily tree got planted ID minutes later
than his own and there, whether
you ever thought about it or not, is
tho causo for more jealousy, fric

cheerful social trifles than ever fig

The press of northeastern Penn
sylvania is plainly with Rural Mall
Driver POTTER, who had some road
supervisors in Bradford county pull
ed for not removing the loose stones
from the highways. He did pre
cisely what those road bosses them
selves know he should have done,
and maybe has indirectly caused su
pervisors in other parts of the state
to get busy. The mall driver is
necessarily a competent judge of a
road's condition. The federal gov
ernment compels him to make a cer
tain time schedule, and to do this
the road under his horses' feet must
be in reasonably good shape. No
fair-minded man in Bradford coun
ty feels grouchy toward Mr. POT
TER for the course he has taken.
Already, it is said, they have better
roads In Bradford.

There can be no doubt that the

The Republican party has drawn
young men to it because It has stood
for principles that were right, and
that has given America its place
among the leading nations of tho
world, says the Nicholson Examiner.
It Is fifty yearB ago that tho party

With the exception of four years the
government hastbeen controlled by
it, and our country has prospered.
The policies of the party have stood
the test and been found safe, and for
this reason tho people are loath to
place the power In other hands. It
will bo because tho masses feel that
the Republican party has drifted
away from the old principles that

Frequently you pick up a local
paper and after glancing at It, wear
ily throw It aside, remarking:
"Nothing In tho paper this week."
Did you ever stop to think what
that phrase means? It means that

bofallen anyone In our community;
that no Aro has wiped out a neigh
bor's worldly goods; that tho grim
angel of death has crossed no thres
hold of a friend; that no man driven
by liquor, hatred or fear has taken
tho Hfo of a fellow human; that
no poor dovll, haunted by the past
misdeeds of some othor, has crossed
tho great dlvldo by his own bauds.

would rather, shall we dish up a

Fanning As n Science.
In a Bpeech before the Minnesota!
Bankers' association, President J
Brown of tho New York Central
railroad quoted statistics to prove
that the consumption of the pro
ducts of tho farm Is rapidly over
taking tho production. Tho general
movement for elevating agriculture
to tho plane of an exact science, In
order that tho output of tho farms
may be Increased, he asserted, de
serves the generous encouragement
of tho national government.
Continuing his argument, Presi
dent Brown said that f 10, 000, 000
tho price of one battleship If de
voted to tho purposes of scientific
Instruction, with a view to ration
alizing agriculture, would go far to
Insure that In the future the supply
of farm products, so vital to tho na
tion's welfare, will be at least equal
to the demand.
It has become tho fashion of Into
for railroad presidents to make this
same argument. James Hill has been
making It for years, constantly offer
ing statistics to prove that the farms
are being deserted.
If the standard of production has
fallen below what it was In former
periods, tho fault Is not duo to tho
lack of science In farming. Such an
argument refutes itself, Inasmuch as
science in farming is a comparative
ly recent development. In the days
when tho government took little in
terest iu fanning, according to the
argument, the productivity of the
soil must have been at Its height.
As a matter of fact, farmers are
getting as much out of the soil to
day as ever they did. There has
been a general trend toward tho
cities, and to that fact Is duo the
comparative decrease in production.
Immigration tends cityward Instead
of countryward. The natural result
has been a decrease In production
and an increase in consumption. To
that fact largely is due the increase
in the cost of living.
If farmers want to learn intensive
farming, thoy have greater facilities
for doing so today than ever before
in the history of this country. What
President Brown is beseeching Is al
ready being accomplished. The de
partment or agriculture has for a
number of years been conducting a
campaign of education along the
very lines proposed by President
Brown. Millions of dollars are be
ing spent by the government to
teach the farmer how to make every
acre of land yield its full toll. -It
is Impossible to draft unwilling per
sons into the farming Industry, but
those who are engaged in It are
receiving every possible encourage
