Chance For Farmers To
Better Township Roads
COUNTRYMAN PROFITS BY PRO
VISIONS OF JONES STATUTE
SOME INTERESTING FEATURES
OF THE ACT EXPLAINED.
Tho 'following article is reprinted
from a Lancaster county paper and
will be read with Interest by all anx
ious for dirt road Improvement:
An address delivered before tho
Lancaster County Farmers' associa
tion .by Donald McCaskey, M. ID.,
Witmer, Pa., President Supervisor
Board, Lampeter township.
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentle
men: Tho man who is responsible for the
Jones law is E. E. Jones from Sus
quehanna county. Ho has boen a
member or the House for some years.
The' trouble used to bo that tho
farmers were up against the city
man. Tne city men were well or
ganized, with their automobile clubs,
chambers of commerco and business
men's league. All their road activi
ties were previously made in behalf
of expensive hard surfaced roads
costing from $10,000 to $20,000 per
mile, and so with this kind of opposi
tion the farmers got very little.
Jones was a country man. 'He
knew what kind of a proposition we
country folks were up against. He
realized that we country people
would have to have helo ifor our dirt
road troubles and so he framed the
Jones Bill in order to give the oppor
tunity to farmers and active suner-
visors to do something. Before this
time in some townships, road taxes
were never collected in cash, but
once a year they called tho farmers
out to work on tho roads, and there
was a week's jollflcatlon. Mr. Jones
wanted to see the township road tax
money paid in to the treasury in
stead of having it worked out on tho
roads, and he-framed this bill which
provided for the State's giving 50
per cent, of the amount of tax col
lected in cash to each township
which made such collection instead
of the work system. Some outsid
ers meddled in and the amount was
reduced to $20 a mile. The provis
ions of the law I will briefly state.
First of all, the word "road sup
ervisor" has been left out. Here
after road officials will be known as

two. In 1915 one. So it goes. The
term of each supervisor will be four
years. Tho time of the organization
of the board has changed to the first
Monday In December, so that every
thing will be In working order at
the beginning of the new calendar
year. A vital provision is that the
supervisors can get all the help they
want from the Highway Department
If you peoplo Have any road diffi
culties which you can not solve
yourselves, do not hesitate to call on
that Department to send a man.
They will send one man or any num
ber of men free of charge who will
do your surveying or make any nec
essary plans, all of which will cost
you nothing. If you wish to grade
a hill, tho Jones Bill provides that
you have the gratutous services of a
Another vital point Is that tho su

Mrs. Burnell gained material for
her monologues of Hindu life while
living in Southern India, whither
she went, as she herself expressed
it, because a young man asked her
to go with him! She has adopted the
unique method of picturing the life
of the Hindu woman to tho American
people through tho wearing of tho
costume of that country and telling
a continuous story In the first person
as though she were relating tho his
tory of her own family. The story
is not only artistic in its conception,
but so completely does the speaker
loso herself in her character so
vividly does she give tho different
events and scenes, that tho audience
lose themselves and suppose they
are listening to the genuine Hindu
woman. Indeed Mrs. Burnell has
been asked hundreds of times at tho
close of her recital where she learned
to speak English so beautifully and
wnat nas become or her son?
The service was of an inspiring
character throughout, and could not
help but be of Inestimable benefit in
arousing a still greater zeal and
liberality among the members of tho
Old First church, who ore noted for
their generous contributions to all
operations of the church, and par
ticularly to those among peoples of

Charlerol, Fa., Nov. 27. A long
cylindrical packago addressed to
Governor John K. Tenor at his home
hero was received a few days ago, it
became known to-night, In tho mall
postmarked Philadelphia. There
were peculiar things about the pack
age which caused Postmaster J. E
McArdle to hesitate about delivering
it to the Governor's residence On
tho outside was a highly colored
picture of Theodore Roosevelt in
cowboy costume. There was also an
inscription, "Memorial, to tho State
Heroes Dedicated," and another,
"Drive the Republican Bosses Out."
Postmaster McAdle consulted the
Governor about the package and ad

Governor returned the package to

In the affairs of our nation, Rev, C
C. Miller, pastor of St. John's Evan

strong sermon Sunday night, before
the Honesdale Council, No. 980, Jun

chanics, who attended the services
in a body.
Taking as his text Isaiah 20:15-
" Thou hast Increased the nation, O
Lord, thou hast increased the na
tion; thou art glorified; thou hadst
removed it far unto all the ends of
the earth," Pastor Miller spoke In
part as follows:
" It is a source of great satisfac
tion to every devout Christian that
tho Chief Executive of the nation Is
accustomed once a year to Invite the
peoplo to assemble in their places of
worship, to return thanks to Al
mighty God for His blessings to the
" It is also a matter of gratifica
tion that your order, by insisting
that that you attend divine worship
once a year, gives public and solemn
recognition of a 'Supremo Being, an
Overruling Power, and It cannot fall
to exert a salutary influence on our
people at large, and sccuro for us a
continuance of Divine favor and

" By the Providence of God this
country has been opened to all the
world that wo first might apprehend,
enjoy and give civil and religious
liberty to a sin-cursed and priest
ridden world. Hero each man is
sovereign in his own sphere.
" The word ' Democracy ' has such
peculiar charm to tho popular ear
that there is a tendency to degener
ate it and turn it into mere license.
Men regard this land as a place
whore they may do about as they
please. For unjust legislation there
Is always a remedy, but not In con
tempt of the commonwealth. By the
ballot box we can make or unmake
" If 1 understand the principles of
your order you stand not for selfish
perverted patriotism which expresses
itself in tho surly restriction of emi
gration. No there Is room for all
emigrants in this land; but we
must put up a bar to all those who
would bo detrimental to tho coun
try, such as the insane and pauper.
" Patriotism is not a mere, morbid
effervescent sentiment, -but patriot
ism is a deep-hearted lovo funded on
the bed rock of the eternal God
glvcn principle obliging all men not
only to respect their country's laws I
but to contribute to tho development
of every phase of life through the
length and breadth of the land.
" If our peoplo want to show their
patriotism and love to their country
let them pray to God to raise up
leaders among men who will take us
forward under the blessing of Al
" The true Christian man is al
ways tho best citizen. Religion and
Politics must mix in the affairs of our
nation. Piety and patriotism must
clasp hands at the altar of Freedom.
The prosperity of the nation depends
on Christian men who do their, duty.
" The family is the keystone
foundation of character, tho hope of
the church, tho safety of the State.
Many of the homes in our 'day have
become more Inns where families eat
and sleep. Family llfo is lost in tho
giddy whirl of society, in the chase
after cheap amusement. Let us try
to neutralize the spirit of the age,
and become keepers of our homes.
Let us make our hearts pure, our
homes pleasant, our liven beautiful.
" May tho flag of Freedom unfurl

under Its folds so that they may be
constrained to cry out, like the Im
mortal Webster, ' I, I, too, am an
American citizen!' "
Several hundred peoplo attended
tho service which was featured by

DEFENDANT TECHNICALLY GUIL
TY OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
IN FAMOUS CASE OF SOIIIM
MELL VS. BRUSSELLS ACTED
AS HIS. OWN ATTORNEY.
" 1 think you are technically guilty
of cruelty to animals. According to
law you are considered guilty of
cruelty to animals. ISut yon have a
right to appeal. I shall have to lino
you $10 and costs."
Such was tho declsicn handed
down -last Thursday evening by
'Squire William H. Ham, following a
hearing of the evidence in tho caso
of Schimmell vs. Brussells, the latter
being arrested on the complaint of A.
F, Schimmell, who alleged that Brus
sells was guilty of causing cruelty to
animals Wednesday afternoon, Nov.
22, when ho tied a cow to a wagon
with a short rope, and left his horses
unblanketed and unfed and unwater
from 2:30 p. m. to 6 p. m.
The hearing was held In 'Squiro
Ham's office, and proved to be a
spicy ono. A largo number of wit
nesses crowded the improvised court
room almost to suffocation.
'At 7:18 p. m. 'Squire Ham asked
if all tho parties wore ready to pro
ceed, and on being informed that
they were, he told Mr. Brussells that
he was charged with cruelty to ani
mals. " I plead not guilty," spoke up
the defendant, quick as a flash.
'Squire Ham then read the com
plaint to him, informing Brussells
that he was charged with causing un
lawful cruelty and distress' to ani
mals. "Not guilty," reiterated the de
fendant. " Call your complainant," spoke
up County Detective N. B. Spencer,
who played the role of district at
torney throughout the proceedings.
A. F. Schimmell, tho prosecutor,
was sworn and testified: " Well, I see
this man have his team tied up there
to a post from 2:30 to 5 o'clock, and
they had no blankets on."
"'What happened to them at 5
o'clock?" asked Detective Spencer.
" I don't know anything about
that," replied Mr. Schimmell. "I

wagon. Ho had, the cow tied right
close up to the axle of tho wagon,

Sunday School Workers
Meet in Hawley
Besides tho county Sunday school
convention which meets annually,
Wayne is divided into several sub-districts
which hold a meeting twice a
year. Tho Hawley district is a circle
beginning at South Canaan, sweep
ing around to Lakevllle, Kimbles,
Long Ridge, and back again to Ca
naan, including all the schools with
in tho territory of whatever namo
or denomination, probably eighteen
or twenty In number.
Tho last convention was held in
the Presbyterian church of this vill
age on Wednesday, Nov. 22. There
was not a largo delegation, but tho
sessions proved very interesting and
profitable. The Rov. E. W. Morri
son, of South Canaan, was presi
dent, Miss Millie Tuthlll was secre
tary and Miss Mamo Snyder, treas
urer, both of Hawley. The Rev. C.
S. Smalley delivered a speech of wel
come a little out of the usual line.
Instead of the hackneyed words of
welcome ho launched out Into an ad
dress upon the Sunday school as al
lied to matters educational, inspira
tional and missionary. He dwelt
particularly upon the missionary
idea. It was a warm and helpful ad
dress in Mr. Smalley's best vein.
Reports of various departmental
work of the schools of the district
and attention to items of business
completed tho morning period.
The afternoon period was mainly
given up to open conference on
Cradle Roll work. This conference
was in charge of tho county presi
dent, Dr. Appley, of Damascus. The
doctor practices medicine as a voca
tion and follows 'Sunday school work
as an avocation. And he is an en
thusiastic and well informed worker.
He withstood, with utmost compos
ure and good nature, for more than
an hour, a fusillade of objections and
questions, to the great delight and
profit of all present.
Mrs. F. L. Tuttlo presented an ex
cellent paper on Temperance and
furnished the convention literature
on tho work adapted to Sunday
schools, published by the W. C. T.
Tho evening was occupied with an
address by President Morrison who
gave a very glowing resume of tho
State Sunday school convention held
recently at Newcastle, to which he
was delegate. There followed also
some statements by Dr. Appley of
the finances of the county organiza
tion, to the funds of which this con
vention contributed about ten dol
lars from Its treasury. Then tho
doctor suffered another volley of
questions after he had elaborated
Organized Adult Bible Class work.
It was a very profitable and en
joyable session, and those who were
prevented from attending missed
many good things. It Is likely tho
next session will ho held at Lake
vllle. 'Hawley Times.
