Though we travel the world over
to find the beautiful, we must carry
It with us or we find it not. Emer
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
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

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
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
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
Twenty-nine bills were Teported

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"

penalties for olectlon officers who dl
vulgo how men -vote.

ed a bill making the Philadelphia
civil service commission elective.
Thomas, Luzerne, amending sec
ond class city act by providing that

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.
Interesting Items Taken From Our
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,

father's revolver and pulled the trig

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
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. It was
the measure appropriating $70,000
to make up a deficit In the Rltters
