Regarding the recent Act of the
Pennsylvania Legislature, npproved
March 2, 1911, a prothonotary in
another county has received a com
munication from Harrlsburg, that is
of interest and Importance to jus
tices of the peace, as well as all
public officers in Wayne county. The
letter follows:
March 29, 1911.
To the Prothonotary: Dear Sir
Aldermen and Justices of the Peace
whose terms have been lengthened
by the recently adopted constitution
al amendments and schedule thereto
or by the act of 2 March 1911, are
entitled to serve the additional time
without being re-commissioned, as
the effect is to continue them in of
fice during the extended terms with
out any other or further commis
Official acts performed during ex
tended terms are by said act made
valid and of the same force and ef'
feet as If each of said officers had
been elected and commissioned to
servo until the end of the extended
Attention Is directed to the fact
that the terms of Aldermen and Jus
tices of the Peace extended by the
schedule from the lirst Monday of
May, 1911, until the first Monday of
December, 1911, are such public of
ficers, otherwise provided for,
whose terms, therefore, are not fur
ther extended by section one of said
act. Their successors are to be
elected in November, 1911, whose
terms will begin the first .Monday of
December, 1911, and continue until
the first Monday of January, 191S.
See section five of act.
In other words, the Act of 2
Alarch, 1911, does not affect the be
ginning or end of terms of Alder
men and Justices of tho Peace whose
terms were extended and fixed by the
schedule to the constitution; that is,
(1) thoso expiring In Alay, 1911,
which were extended to December,
1911, and, (2) those elected in Feb
ruary, 1910, whoso terms were fixed
to expire in December, 1915; but
section five of said act does provide
for extension of one month at end of
lerm of their successors, so the term
will end In January of the appro
priate year.
The terms ol Aldermen and Jus
tices of the Peace which would have
expired in Alay or other years are ex
tended In accordance with section
one of said act; that is, to January
of the appropriate year following.
Very respectfully yours,
Secretary of the Commonwealth.

brought joy and sunshine Into many
a life. 1 have known of such in
stances. It is adaptable to all localities. It
is possible to have a Home Depart
ment anywhere. The country is no
exception. In my work of getting
Home Dapartments started in tho
schools, I find that the town and
city schools are tho slowest to be
gin the work. Yet two largest de
partment! of this county are in city
schools. I have had country
churches for the past live years;
these churches have been In two
counties. I have found it possible
to have a Home Department in these , n
scnoois. i no wont none is wormy
of note. In one of these schools the
Home Department was run by tho
superintendent of the department
alone. She was an aged woman,
but her means and life were con
secrated to the Alaster's service.
She traveled about live miles to
leach some members of the depart
ment. 1 have at present, In two
schools, Home Departments doing
commendable work. The depart
ments are not large but are grow

had several converts who joined the

Coming In Out of the Wet.
There Is an amusing story by Atbe
naeus which suggests the possible ori
gin of the phrase "He does not know
enough to come In out of the wet." Ac
cording to the I'liicrtaining grammarian
referred lo. a town in Greece under
stress of evil circumstances borrowed
money from a rich man. who took as
security for the loan a mortgage on the
handsome portico which surrounded
the market place He was not an nn-
enerous creditor, for when It rained
he caused the town criers to announce
thai the citizens hud permission lo
take refuge under the colonnade.
Strangers visiting the town who fall
ed to have the ma-ter properly explain
ed to them were so impressed by the
extraordinary circumstances that they
spread abroad the report that the peo
pie were so stupid that they had to be
told when to come in out of the wet.

There Is a deep-rooted Impression
among consumers of anthracite coal
in Pennsylvania that the high price
of that essential commodity Is not
.vholly due to the unlettered work
ing of economic law. The wldo dis
proportion between the successive in
creases in the wages paid to the
miners and tho increases in the price
exacted of the consumer, together
with tho equally striking discrepancy
in the transportation charges per
ton per mile for anthracite as com
pared with, the corresponding freight
rates for bituminous coal and other
commodities, have combined to deep
en the conviction that the consumer
Is the victim of extortion to the
tune of many millions of dollars
The close ' community of Interest
between the transportation and min
ing companies and tho restricted re
gion within which anthracite is
found making this sort of combina
tion and control possible, are factors
in the public dissatisfaction and in
the widespread distrust of the ex
planations offered by the coal pro
ducing and carrying corporations.
These considerations glvo to the
resolutions Introduced in tho Senate
at Harrlsburg an importance which
they might not otherwise have.
Pennsylvania politicians have only
themselves to blame If their motives
are mistrusted, and if all legislative
proposals affecting powerful corpora
tion Interests are suspected either
of too friendly Inspiration or of be
ing prompted by sinister intentions.
If tho Salus proposals for an exhaus
tive legislative inquiry into the high
cost of coal have no motive other
than to ascertain the truth, they will
bo heartily welcomed by consumers.
An investigation, undertaken in
good faith and prosecuted without
fear or favor, untainted by tho sus
picion of partisanship or rancor, and
covering every stage of the industry,
physical and financial, can not but
bo of benefit to tho whole commun
ity. If the coal operators and trans
portation companies have been mis
judged by public opinion, they
should be eager to facilitate In every
possible way tho most searching
probe that a legislative committee
could poBslbly inaugurate. The an
thracite Interests are so important
to this Commonwealth that there can
ho no secrets relating to them from
which the public should be excluded.
They do not really realize that they
are being fitted and enthused fori
future service. About the first I
thing to do Is to pray for the work-1
ers to come. Dr. Clark, the Sunday
school man, names four requisites
workers should have, namely, rellg-j

The Green Constable.
A new constable ou duty In a pro
vincial town handed to a sergeant a
shilling which be said he had found.
The man with tho three stripes told
him ho was quite right In acting as he
had done. Proceeding on his round,
the sergeant met a brother sergeant
and. with a grin, told him tho tale of
the shilling. They both agreed tho
new recruit was very green, and at
the conclusion of their duties they
went to the nearest Inn, and the pos
sessor of the coin called for two drinks.
On receiving them he threw down the
shilling to pay for them, but the land
lord refused It. saying It was a bad
one. The sergeant, notoriously mean,
had to supply the requisite amouut out
of his own pocket and also to put up
with the laugh against himself. On
bis telling the constable his find was n
bad one tho man answered: "Yes. ot
course lt was. Do you think I would
have been silly enough to give it to
you if lt hadn't been?" Pearson's.
