THOUGHT FOR TO-DAY. Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry It with us or we find it not. Emer son. EXCUSE US, PJiliASE! The average reader believes that newspapers will accept almost any old thing for its advertising col umns If the advertiser will only pay the price. This is a "belief," a mere dream, for the very opposite is the fact. Newspapers that are worthy to bo called by that name are con stantly refusing to accept advertise ments, although in many cases the prices offered to pay for their pub lication are quite alluring. Within a week The Citizen has "turned down" several such adver tisements. For example we would mention one such advertisement that exploited some wonderful cure-all for "weak men." Numerous papers In good standing were referred to as carrying the advertisement; but we could not accept it because we be lieve that that class of advertising should find no place In a paper that wants to be welcomed at the fireside as an embodiment of what is pure, clean and unobjectionable. We could give other samples, lots of them. So can all other newspa per publishers; but "what's the use?" One sample is like the rest of the bunch, and all are objectable. Occasionally we run across our old friend who still labors under the de lusion that newspapers aro always welcoming "something to All up" their columns. Why, bless his dear old heart, that era of the newspaper ago passed peacefully away several years ago, and with the newspapers of to-day the real question is what shall be left out) for there is al ways, or nearly always, more good things to be printed than the paper will hold, and it just about breaks the editor's heart to see so many de sirable news delicacies going to waste. DEVELOPMENT OF TnE FARM IN AVAYXE COUNTY. In our grandfathers' days about everything was left to Providence, particularly about .farm life. It was a sort of a hit or miss vocation; some men made money at farming; and a great many others wondered how they did it; more people worked hard and barely existed on the fruits of their toil. To-day there is no other vocation In the world which is receiving so much study and attention as farm ing. The grange has for years been seeking to better the condition of the tiller of the soil, and it has suc ceeded in a very large degree. The legislators have been looking after the farmers' Interests in many ways. The scientists have been busy in studying soils, fertllzers and climatic conditions. Millions of acres of arid lands now are the most fertile to be found anywhere as the result of Ir rigation. Animal husbandry is be ing fostered by government depart ments and from the horse, tho dairy cow, sheep and swlno down to tho production of the fertile egg every detail is being looked after toward ultimate perfection. Hon. W. T. Creasy, who will address the Wayne Pomona In Honesdale to-night, has assiduously labored in tho interest of the Grange In Penn sylvania. Ho is an untiring worker and it is largely through his efforts that tho Grange Is as strong and In fluential In tho state. Hon. Creasy, 'possibly better known as "Farmer" Creasy, has done much for tho betterment and enlightenment of tho farmers In the state. Ho is an ardent advocator of scientific farming and is doing much to promote a higher grade of soil tillage The age Is hero for the scientific tillage and fertilizing of the soil, the evolution of improvements in the machinery and tools used, tho per fection pf seeds and plants grown and the very highest strains In the blood of the animals on tho farm for tho uses for which they aro desired. Science has brought old scrubby or chards Into new life, rewarding man's Intelligence and industry with perfect fruit. by the Citizen Publishing Company. atthe postofllce, Honesdalo, Pa. Much credit is due District Stato Horticulturist W. H. Bullock and W. W. Baker of the Farmers and Mechanics Bank for what they are doing for the advancement and de velopment of Wayne county agricul turally and hortlculturally. There is not a better place 'in the United States for growing apples than In Wayne county and the sooner tho farmer of dear old Wayne wake up to this fact the more profitable It will be for them. It is hoped that when the gentlemen with tho peti tions for tho proposed Wayne Coun ty Horticultural Association call up on you that you will not neglect the opportunity of expressing a desire of joining by signing your name on the paper. If you are a farmer you will never regret It. The egg business of the United States amounts to $300,000,000 a year. Yet the government experts say that 15 per cent, is lost and that Is $45,000,000, and It proposes to teach poultrymen how to make this saving, and at no cost to them for the teaching. In Wayne county there are several farmers and other individuals who are interested in raising poultry. Near Honesdale J. B. Robinson has over 2,000 pullets which are now helping to furnish the New York market with strictly pure and fresh eggs. At Hawley Leroy Sands and Ralph Martin sell eggs and broilers to tho trade. G. W. Swartz, of Ariel, has one of the largest poultry farms in Wayne county. In fact bird fanciers are located in various parts of the county and all aro doing well, too. There are several herdsmen in Wayne county who are raising a cer tain kind of stock. Some prefer tho Holsteln, others the Jerseys, while still others swear by the Gurnsey and Ayrshire blood. By reason of settlement tho cattle rangers of tho West are steadily di minishing. This country faces a cat tlo shortage, in fact, it has one now; tho population Is increasing, while cattle raising has fallen off for a number of years. There aro large areas of Idle land in Wayne county well suited to stock raising These farms, many of them being first class, would make ideal pasture lands and could be utilized for beef cattle. Western beef Is tough. Peo ple clamor for Wayne county beef and there Is no reason why It cannot bo raised here. Tho general gov ernment, and particularly the Penn sylvania department of Agriculture, urges farmers to engage In produc ing fat cattle for the market. Our state department has been quito ur gent about this particular matter for several years, and a bulletin Is Is sued giving facts and figures obtain ed on the average farm and showing a good profit In beef cattle in all parts of Pennsylvania. Congress last year appropriated $150,000 for ex periments In animal breeding and feeding. Every state legislature has given attention to tho same and kindred subjects. Any farmer de siring to raise cattle can obtain In formation concerning same from tho government Agriculture Depart ment. HARRISBURG LETTER A bill making it a misdemeanor, punishable by a 'fine of from $10 to $25 for any person to give, solicit or receive directly or indirectly a tip was Introduced Into the house Thurs day by Mr. Kceport, member from Reading. Tho bill contains a preamble recit ing that "tho iniquitous custom of tipping has grown to enormous pro portions In this country and has long since become an Intolerable burden to thoso who travel," and that "tho giving of tips is not alone un-American but unfair and unjust and works a hardship on many who cannot af ford the many petty exactions caus ed by this custom." The act provides that informations making charges of violation of tho law may bo made before any alder man, magistrate or Justice of the peace. Twenty-nine bills were Teported from committees and one, which pro hibited tho sale of liquor In less than a gallon by wholesalers was commit ted to the law and order committee, The amendment to tho olectlon law was one of six bills presened by Mr. Jones, Of Schuylkill, all of which have been passed. The bill passed Thursday Is largely technical and supplements the "assistance" bill passed Wednesday by providing penalties for olectlon officers who dl vulgo how men -vote. Other Bills Passed Aro. Senate bill providing for resentenc ing of convicts who have been sen tenced under a law declared uncon stitutional; senate bill appropriating $4,000 tp state quarantine board; senate bill appropriating $9,327 to pay bills In connection with the fur nishing of Shamokln state hospital; exempting certain buildings from provisions relating to fire towers and outsldo fire escapes; directing publi cation of 150,000 copies of game, fish and forestry laws; amending trespass so that it shall not apply to private factories, 'mills or churches. A system of state parks is provid ed for in a 1)111 introduced by North, of Jefferson, these to bo under the supervision of a state park commis sion of five. Other new bills Introduced in the house, are: Bigger, Allegheny Creating bur eau of public morals in second class cities. Neely, Allegheny Appropriating $1,170,000 to University of Pitts burg. 'Ewlng, Philadelphia Fine and Imprisonment for railroad trespass ing. Glenn, Venango Prohibiting shooting woodcock for six years. Roney, Philadelphia $4,000 sal ary for deputy prothonotary of east ern supreme court district. Kern, Montgomery County as sessors to be paid $5 a day. Ramsey, Delaware Ten thousand dollars for monument to John Mor ton, signer of the declaration of In dependence. The bill requiring boroughs and first class townships to pay expenses of operations of state health depart ment In their llmls was sent back to committee. Young, of Philadelphia, Introduc ed a bill making the Philadelphia civil service commission elective. Thomas, Luzerne, amending sec ond class city act by providing that contracts for official advertising shall be made with not less than two or more than five daily newspapers. The lower house redeemed last weok the promise of all the political state conventions of 1911 in Pennsyl vania, that the ballot law should be reformed and Improved so as to cur tail the evils which flow from un limited power to "assist" voters to mark their ballots. Prominent in the debate of over two hours duration were John R. K. Scott, of Philadelphia, and Richard J. Baldwin of Delaware, the Tener floor leader. There were other able participants, but these two stood out most prominently because of their different interpretations as to the de sire of the people for honest elec tions. Tho bill was passed by 144 yeas to 51 nays. It provides that the only disability that can justify a voter in asking or getting "assistance" in the marking of his ballot Is real physi cal disability, such as blindness, 'or being armless, or some other In capacitating affliction just as appar ent to the election board. Illiteracy Sives a man under this bill no right to "assistance." If he cannot read or write he must have a specimen ballot marked for him outside the booth, and he can take this into the booth with him and use it in mark ing his regular ballot. If he should be unable to do this ho does not get to vote. The house made Its senti ment quite clear in this matter of illiteracy, which is that while every man has the right to vote, it is his own duty to qualify himself to use that right by learning to read and write. If he does not do this his loss of the voting privilege Is duo to himself alone. Woman SiilTraKlts Aroused. Advocates of woman's suffrage are Inclined to believe that the Senate Committee having their referendum bill in its keeping are not much dis posed to report It out until too late to pass It. They report Chairman Mcllhenny as stating that tholr meas ure cannot bo reached for a little while because of tho congested stato of the committee's work. Now the women propose to do a little investi gating on their own account to learn for themselves just how many im portant measures aro now in the cus tody of this committee. Anyone laboring under tho impression that tho woman's suffrage workers havo lost interest in their fight on this question should pay a visit to Har risburg and they will loam other wise, AVork of tlio House. The House has fixed March 17th as the last day for introduction of now bills, except local bills requiring ad vertisements in county papers. More than 1000 bills have been offered since the legislature convened on January 7th. On account of the In augural ceremonies at Washington on March 4th, the Assembly after ad journment Inst weok, will not recon vene until March 5, and the Senate not until March 10. House Commit tees are working hard these days, many night sessions being held, and much consideration is "being given important measures. Public hear ings have been given on measures of State-wide importance, and many are availing themselves of this oppor tunity to present arguments for and against certain measures. Mercantile. Tnv Repealer. By a vote of 122 to 70 the House has decided to plrtce the mercantile tax repeal bill on the calendar, not withstanding the negative recom mendation of tho AVays and Means Committee. Mr. Roney declared that the repeal of this measure would deprive tho Commonwealth of about $1,400,000 revenue. Mr. R. J. Bald win thought the merchants of tho State could well afford to pay three mills on the dollar when the farmers about him are paying thirteen mills. Mr. Lowers said that Inasmuch as many members had pledged them selves during the campaign to favor repeal of this measure, it was only fair the bill be put on the calendar to give them an opportunity to put themselves on record as standing by their pledges. STATE NEWS Interesting Items Taken From Our Exchanges. The diphtheria scare In Blanchard Is fast disappearing, as the develop mont of no moro than the three cases has reassured the residents that the quarantine established has "been ef fective. The anti-toxin treatment in these cases, one of which was ad vanced to a critical stage when dis covered, has proved the efficacy of this method of treatment. The AV. C. T. U. of Eaglesmero showed enough of the law to knock out the last remaining liquor license at that summer resort. Before they did so, however, they secured finan cial backing for a temperance house which will bo open to the public in a short time .and will remain open all the year round. Grace Stldfole, the Wllliamsport girl shot by John Erble last Novem ber, has recently been improving. For a long time she lay at the hospi tal between life and death and was taken to her mother's home to die. It is now thought that she will re cover and Erble, who has not been outsldo of his call since the shooting, is allowed to exercise In tho corridor. Miss 'Ruth Fisher and Miss Violet Wlnkleman, of Flemlngton( went skating on Bald Sagle creek a few days ago and skated through thin ice. They went In the water up to their necks but fortunately touched bot tom and were able to cling to tho edge of the ice until their cries brought help. Leonard Hullng, aged 12 years, stood and looked at a burning shanty at Cook's Run, near Renoro, recent ly and has likely lost the sight of an eye by so doing. There were some 38 calibre cartridges in the shanty and as they exploded one of them struck the hoy In the face. An order issued irom the National Guard Department announces the dis charge of Captain AVIlllam H. Nevln, of Company E, Twelfth Infantry, it appearing that ho is unfit to dis charge the duties of his office. The Pennsylvania Coal and Coke corporation on Monday fired some 400 coke ovens at its No. 10 mine at Gallltzin. They have been Idle for the past week or longer for repairs and these havo been finished and all will be put into operation as quickly as possible. David Scalbetti, aged 10 years, Is the youngest prisoner ever tried for murder in the AVestmoreland county court. Angry at his brother, he had, tho prosecution says, picked up his father's revolver and pulled the trig ger just as Andy Sabon came within range. AVI IE RE THE DELAAVARE'S BROAD AVATERS ARE FLOWING Interesting Bits of Items and Person, nf Mention from Deposit to Port .Tcrvls. Elmer Alkens has loaded three, cars of pine lumber and has three" more about loaded. In all he has about 100,000 Sect, which will be shipped to a firm In the state of Pennsylvania. Tho postmaster at Long Eddy, Sul livan county, James Emmett Arm strong, recently Indicted for stealing $C,000 from tho postal funds, was sent to a sanitarium for tho Insane In Mlddletown. Postal Inspectors have made the discovery that his mind is unbalanced. Of tho missing money $4,000 has been found hidden In Armstrong's store. Armstrong was one of tho most prominent men of tho county and had been postmas ter 29 years. After he became in sane he cashed checks with postal funds and then hid the checks. Albert Warren, of Lackawaxon, proprietor of tho Union House in that village, was admitted to citizen ship in Pike county court last week. The Dupuy application was not signed' by at least twelve qualified electors of Pike township as tho law requires, and for this reason, as also because there is no necessity for a hotel at Big Pond, 'the license was refused. Thero was a remonstranco filed against the place. Tho farmers of northern Now York's big hay section who, as a gen eral rule, held on to their hay last fall for a higher price, aro now de ploring their mistake, as they are now glad to sell It at $3 less a ton than they could havo taken a few months ago. Hay Is selling In Wat ertown at from $10 to $12 a ton and there is lots of It In tho vicinity. Oats aro being shipped Into Water town at 35c a bushel. Belief that a big dam will sooner or later he built across the East Branch of tho Delaware was strength ened a few days ago by the arrival of three surveyors, who made a sur vey from tho Long Flat cemetery to a point Just abovo Shlnhopple. While nothing was given out, it is very evident judging from the indi cations, that a big power dam will bo built to furnish electricity for some railroad or other corporation. It Is said that thero are only two .feasible sites for such a dam between Har vard and Arkvllle, one of them be ing between the Long Flat cemetery and mountain and the other at Shin hopple, whero the valley Is very nar row. Whether property owners In that section will tako kindly to the project remains to bo seen. A big dam at Shlnhopple would mako an Immense lake, Inundating the river valley back as .far as Downsvllle, and submerging all of tho river flat farms. GOVERNOR SIGNS FIRST BILL OF THE SEASON. Harrlsburg. The first bill of tho 1913 legislature to be enacted Into law received the signature of the governor last Friday six weeks after tho opening of the session.
