Newfoundland's Fine Glee Chi
Debate Was Culled OIL
Newfoundland has a male glee club
which can give cards and spades and
outsing some of the college and pro
fessional glee clubs heard on the
vaudeville stoge. Seldom has it
been the writer's pleasure to listen
to voices which so nicely blend and
are so pleasing to hear. We were
fortunate to be where we could listen
to the clul) at practice one even
ing and, although the members had
all been working In the fields dur
ing a long, hot day, they had gath
ered In the cool of the evening,
about 9 o'clock, after all work had
been done, to get a little practice
before helping out the old veterans
at the seven-county reunion to be
held early next month at Wllkes
Barre. The varied selections were
tried and as the sweet melody float
ed out on the stillness of the night,
the neighbors sitting on their
porches or inside with open doors
and windows were treated to an
Impromptu concert delightfully re
freshing after the heat of the day.
As one old resident said, "It makes
me happy when I hear the boys
sing, and I forget my troubles."
Newfoundland has a flourishing
literary society, which meets regu
larly and affords entertainment to
the people of the surrounding coun
try. They held a regular meeting
Friday evening and for this a very
Interesting program had been ar
ranged, but on account of various
reasons a number of those slated to
take part were absent. The several
numbers of the program given,
including recitations and the instru
mental and vocal music, were ren
dered in an excellent manner and
reflected much credit on the partici
pants The debate was postponed.
A resolution to call off nil meetings
until October was passed. Rev. Mr.
Francke presided and the large room
of the high school was well filled,
although the day had been exceed
ingly hot, which fnct no doubt kept
many from attending.

SOUTH STERLING ALL RIGHT.
Oiifilit to Re One of Popular Vacation
Points A Model Ruteherinu
Our representative spent part of
a day last week in this section of
the county, but, owing to business
demands at home, was compelled to
cut short his visit and was thus de
prived of calling on many of the
friends of The Citizen in this neck
of woods. South Sterling is a de
lightful place at this season of the
year, and Philadelphia and New York
people are aware of this fact to the
extent that many of them are domi
ciled at the various hotels and board
ing houses. The Paupack valley If
better known would become one of
the great summer resorts of Penn
sylvania. Delightfully situated away
from the noise and confusion of the
railroad, nestled in a beautiful val
ley, which is higher than many of
the hills and mountain resorts ex
ploited in city papers, it affords that
rest which brings health and renew
ed vigor to those whose energies are
used in the business life of the big
cities and congested centers. There
is plenty of shade and the Wallen
paupack waters the entire valley,
making it a garden spot, so thnt an
abundance of table vegetation can al
ways be had. Pasture land and wa
ter for the cattle unite to produce
plenty of rich cream and milk. The
nights are cool, Insuring good rest
ful sleep, and those who spend their
vacation here are loud In their praise
of the healthful and beneficial effects
derived from a short stay in this

We had the pleasure of meeting E.
D. Dunning, one of Dreher's enter
prising citizens, and made a visit
to his model slaughterhouse. The
word "slaughter" seems to be a mis
nomer for the place we visited, as ex
treme cleanliness was in evidence on
every hand, and as we watched the
younger Dunnings manipulate the
lambs they were preparing and dress

mountains, wo thought some city and

they could take lessons from these
young men In the care and deftness
with which they handled tho beef
and lamb, not only as to tho way
they did tholr work but also tho
manner In which sanitation was ob
served. We went Into their refrigerating

DYNAMITING LOTS OF FISH.
Complaints of Wholesale Slaughter
in the Delaware River.
ThePond Eddy correspondent of
tho Montlcello Watchman writes
that a general complaint hns been
made by residents of ' Handsome
Eddy, Pond Eddy, and other points
along the Delaware because of the
wholesale dynamiting of the stream
Bass, wall-eyed pike, etc., have
been killed by the basketfull and
thousands of flngerlings, too small
to eat, are lying along the banks,
rotting in the sunlight.
It is against the law to dynamite
a stream, and the fish so killed are
soft and jellylike within a short
time nfter, so there Is neither sport
nor profit in the killing.
It is understood the parties are
known and that a complaint has
been made to the flish and game

Public Service Chairman Down on
Chairman Stevens of the public
service commission at Buffalo Friday
took official cognizance of the policy
of the Erie railroad of converting its
stations into billboards. He con
demned the prnctlce as reprehensible
and ordered the attorneys for the
road to be in a position at the next
meeting of tho commission on Aug.
12 to say whether tho railroad In
tended to continue the practice.
"For the sake of a few dollars,"
said Chairman Stevens, "the Erie
railroad has chosen to offend Its
patrons by placing advertising matter
upon Its stations. The matter Is
both objectionable and reprehensible
and must cease.
"The Erie Is the only road that
has chosen to affront the public In
this manner and tho condition of Its
stations is a public reproach. So
far as I am concerned I am willing
to make an order requiring the Erie
to stop It, and then let the courts
deckle whether or not tho order shall
GAPES IN YOUR CHICKS.
Arc Due To Little Worms In the
Windpipe, Snys Prof. Surface.
A prominent Clarion county farm
er wrote Prof. II. A. Surface, state
zoologist of Pennsylvania, saying:
"My neighbor's chicks are all dying
with gapes, nnd I havo ICG which I
would like to savo. Can you tell me
what to do for thorn, nnd also ad
vise a remedy for llco on little
Tho reply of Prof. Surface fol
lows: "Replying to your Inquiry con
cerning gapes in chicks, I can say
that this disease Is duo to little
worms in tho windpipe, which come
from tho chicks eating earthworms.
If they aro never allowed on tho
ground where thero aro earthworms,
they will not got tho gapes. For
example, If you can keep them on
tho barn floor, or on soil well cov
ered with llmo or ashes, they will bo
freo from this disease; but, of
course, they do much better if allow
ed to run out, especially during nico
"Within tho earthworm the little
gapeworm is encysted, just as tho
parasitic worm causing the human
dlseaso known as trichinosis is en
cysted In tho flesh of pork and de
velops when eaten' by n person. In
the same way does this little gape
worm remain in the earthworm until
eaten by the fowl or chick, when it
develops Into the gapeworm, caus
ing the dlsenso which Indicates Its
"A successful physician has rec
ommended to mo to destroy the pest
by putting tho chicks Into a box and
dropping a few drops of cnrbollc ncld
on hot bricks, closing the box, nnd
letting the chicks breathe the fumes
for a few minutes. Ropeat treat
ment onco or twice. There Is, of
course, dnnger of overdoing this by
mnklng tho fumes too strong, If
one Is not cnreful.
"One simple remedy which I have
seen successfully used this spring Is
common kerosene or lnmp- oil ap
plied by dipping the tip of a feather
into it and Inserting It into the
windpipe of the chick. Tho shnnk
of tho fenther should be stripped
of Its side barbs and only the tip
remain to act ns a soft feather
brush. By opening the mouth of
the chick and pulling the tongue
slightly, the opening in the wind
pipe Is to be seen nnd the feather
can bo inserted. This apparently
does not cause much pain, and the
operation Is soon finished. It ap
pears that one touch of the oil
against tho gapeworm is enough
to kill It, even though It Is not re-'
moved with tho feather nt the time
of treatment. I saw a large number
of chicks so treated this spring nnd
every one recovered after treatment.
This appears to me to be more cer
tain, nnd even more humane, than
to attempt to remove with a horse
hair loop, which is commonly used,
inserted in the windpipe.
"For lice on little chlcKs 1 recom
mend a drop of grease on the head
and under the wing. Fresh lard,
without salt, Is the best. Do not use
much. Only a slight drop or touch
is enough, and put a little under the
wings of the mother hen."

Indications nre that the wild berry

had a bad effect on all crops. The

Even the Shawangunk mountain
huckleberries have felt the effects
of the heat, and although these ber
ries have a good start and were in

the present Indications are that the
crop will fall short of Inst year's,
the berries are ripening faster than
they can bo picked. This Is due to
the fact that when the season Is
about normal the berries ripen grad
ually. Those near the foot of the
mountain ripen first; as the season
progresses the pickers keep working
up toward the top.
This year tho early rains and con
