Snys Fusion Helped Him to Scnnto
nnd Will Mnke.Jllm Governor.
DOYLESTOWN, - Sept. 1. State
Senator Webster Grim, Democratic
cnndldntu for governor, has a sensa
tion to spring on the voters of Penn
sylvania, if the Democratic mana
gers will let him, according to an
Interview with a representative of
the Philadelphia North American.
The closely-guarded sensation is
Mr. Grlm's choice for his running
mate as candidate for lieutenant
governor on the Democratic ticket
In place of Samuel Price, who
declined to run nnd "If It conies
'out It will make somebody's hair
stand up straight," said Mr. Grim.
Mr. Grim, however, refuses abso
lutely to reveal the secret.
He will not even admit that his
choice for lieutenant-governor is a
Democrat, and intimates It may be
Republican, butn Republican whose
lndcpendent, anti-machine stand will
nt once make It plain Mr. Grim Is
no machine candidate
Mr. Grim, in fnct, would admit
nothing directly, says the North
American representative, but tho de
ductions from a lengthy Interview
with htm were that fusion might
be effected between tho Republican
Insurgent element nnd the Demo
crats, nnd that the ultlmato victori
ous anti-Penrose state ticket might
be composed of Webster Grim, Dem
ocrat, for governor; D. Clarence Glb
boney, Keystone Republican, for
lieutenant-governor; John J. Casey,
Keystone Democrat, for secretary of
Internal affairs, and Samuel B. Phil
son, Democrat, for state treasurer.
Mr. Grim did not even Indirectly
say this much, but at the close of
tho Interview, when he was jisked
flatly If this was the sum total to
bo deduced from statements he had
made, he avoided a direct answer
by replying that he had twice been
elected on fusion tickets, that he
believed In fusion, but that he would
positively not be committed to any
thing that the Democratic managers
might not agree with him In bring
ing about.
"If the Democratic managers do
what I want them to do you will
get your sensation all right," said
Mr. Grim, smilingly. "But I am not
going to make advance statements
about anything until they have acted
on the matter. It would hardly be
proper for me to do that. I am not
the whole party; I am only the can
didate of the party and will, of
course, run with whatever man the
party thinks it best to name. But
if they do what I want them to do
it will make some people's hair stand
on end."
For Elementary Schools Subject For
Thought on Part of Supt. Kochlcr.
The Teachers' Institute and Direc
tors' association at their 1909 meet
ing passed resolutions requesting
the county superintendent to compile
a county course of study for the ele
mentary schools and call on the
several districts for the necessary
funds to have It published. Nearly
all the districts in the county re-
questing tho department of public
instruction to publish a similar
course of study for the entire state.
The county superintendent went
to work and outlined a course of
study, spending ten weeks at this
work. When it was ready for the
having tho county course, a copy can
be sent to the directors from which
typewritten copies can bo mado at
their expense.
The money forwarded by tho sev
eral districts will bo returned after
deducting necessary expenses.
The state courso consists of 80
pages of printed matter, completely
outlining the work of the pupil from
tho time he enters school until he ls
prepared for high school work
Supplementary readers, purchased
by the several districts, will bo
adopted just as well under tho state
courso as under tho county course,
both courses being outlined inde
pendent of any particular textbook,
It ls very gratifying to hear that
many districts havo bought supple
mentary readers at tho suggestion
of tho county superintendent
Several purposes of the courso of
study aro to unify tho work of tho
common schooU and to lessen the
evil effects of the constant changing
ot teachers.
Tho chief difference between tho
county course and the state course
ls that tho latter omits entirely tho
alternation system of classes. A
pamphlet will be sent to every
teacher, describing the manner in
which this system applies to the
state course. Our county ls entitled
to 240 copies and they will be for
warded to the teachers immediately
after thoy arrlvo from Harrlsburg,

Let it not be supposed that wo
consider the summer boarder simply
amusing, for it is by no means so. !

to watch very hard.
Having thus acquitted ourselves
of any spirit of injustice, wo go on
to say that the summer boarder
shows an Insatiable appetite for
news from home. Ho gets a little
lonely in the midst of such a big
good tlmo. The way he goes over
his home newspaponls strangely at
variance with tho criticism ho be
stows upon it during the winter. It
is a good sign. Ho is keeping in
touch with the environment in which
most of his dayVimuBt be spent, and
which in his &cret heart pleases
him best. 4

most to get to work' after the time
of Idleness which has prepared them
to work better. They have had

It la best to permit the eggs to re
main in tho nest. The hen ls usual
ly vory cautious on entering and
leaving the nest, and seldom breaks
an egg, unices she has not had suf
ficient shell formers ln her diet. Sco
that she gets burnt dry oyster shells. '
Always provldo tho hen with an In
viting spot of plenty of green grass
for the nest. Too dry a nest often
causes trouble from lack of molsturo.
Give tho hon an opportunity to dust

months ls not the best. He should
be at loast two years old; likewise
the hen3. Above all, Introduce fresh
blood ovory-second year. This is of
gTeat importance in raising turkeys
for profit.
Of one thing there can be no
doubt turkeys do best ln fresh
air and will not stand coddling.
Tho adult birds usually find much ot
their own food; yet It ls an absolute
necessity to feed the flocks when
natural foods are not available.
When Insect life ls scarce, grass Is ot
a poor quality and ls also usually
wet, the consequences Is thoy scour
and often die from the effects. Corn
meal and bran, one part each, with a
fair amount of chopped-up boiled
meat and, when available a few
Bllces of raw onions, all mixed with
tho meat or other animal food has
been boiled, should be used. Mix dry
as possible. Turkeys do not thrive
on slope. Curded milk is much rel
ished and Is a splendid flesh former
and a whltener of flesh. Nothing ls
moro objectionable than a fat breast.
Too much corn feeding or a constant
supply of wheat will not lmprovo the
color of the flesh. Oats are by far
tho best grains to assist In keeping
down fat.
Always provide, fresh clean wa
ter daily and keep the vessels out of
the sun. Neglect ln this regard will
cause losses by disease. Add char
coal ln case of bowel disorders. It
Is an absolute necessity ln success
ful turkey raising. They must have
an unlimited amount of grit, with
out which thoy suffer from indiges
tion. Small pebbleB, coarse sand and
broken crockery and smashed up
burnt bone all aid in digesting their
food. This ls especially required,
previous to their going to roost.
There is no necessity to boll any
gram; they are better without It and
prefer the hard food to that of a
sloppy nature. American Poultry
Separate the Sizes.
It does not pay to let chickens ot
(different sizes run together as tho
larger ones will always domineer

If you have no yards then put them

Ilomedy for Roup.
Tho homeopathic romedy for roup
with Its characteristic cough, tenac

to drink. Tho treatment will have
a marvelous effect.
Anvil from a Steel Rail.
An old railroad rail 2 or 3 feet
long can be used ln the construction
of a handy farm anvil similar to that
shown In accompanying illustration.
Use pieces 2x3 or 2x4 for tho stand-
aids to recolvo the rati, as indicated.
Use an Iron bolt to hold tho top of
the legs together, tightening the nuta
until the rail is hold securely. Pieces
of 1x3 boards brace the standards

the flange of the rail for punching.

Dampness and Disease.
Dryness whon we have heavy show

originate through dampness pro
