Religion is my invisible shield against moral evil, against the cor ruption of the mind, against the de filement of the soul. As there are specifics for tho preserving of the cleanliness of the body, so Is religion for tho preservation of the mind; and it protects the intelligence from be ing lncrusted with layer upon layer of sin. Religion is an invaluable curb on that Inner nature of man which longest remains barbarious and uncivilized. Henry Morton Stanley. I am going to tako the Postoffice Department out of politics if I can find a way to do It. Postmaster Gen eral Burleson. Can he take the poll- tics out of the Postofflce Depart ment? What else than politics is that Department for? The postal service has long been incidental. JUSTICE DONE TO HAWTHORNE AND MORTON. Any other result than the convic , tion of the defendants Freeman, Morton and Hawthorne In the notori ous Canadian mining case would havo been a perversion of justice. There can be no doubt that the son of America's beloved author and the son of the discoverer of the anaesthe tic properties of other passed through a painful ordeal in the long drawn out trial, but sUspehsioh of sentence in their cases would havo been an affront to the law. Public opinion would have been outraged. The penal part of a statute is for wrongdoing men who bear honored and 'historic names as well as for the obscure man who transgresses. If Julian Hawthorne and Dr. Wil 11am J, Morton have suffered ignom iny, the Investors In their disreput able enterprise were swindled and despoiled, and they too have suffer ed. No sentiment and very little pity would go out to the defendants if tho hereditary appeal could not be made for them. It does not mitigate, it aggravates their offence. There is a difference between sentiment and sentimontallty, " The court knows tho facts in the case," said District Attorney Wise when he declined to join in the ap plication of tho defendants' lawyers for suspension of sentence. The evi dence in the case was presented with such fulness and so fairly that the public also knows the facts. It be lieves that tho verdict rendered re luctantly by the jury was just.' New York Sun. THE FACTORY BEAUTIFUL. How John Ruskin would rejoice at the news from Chicago that tho United States Steel Corporation was going to try to turn its plants into Spotless Towns! His was a voice crying In the wilderness over tho way modern Industry had befouled the streams of England, obscured tho sky and converted green fields into moun tains of rubbish. (Now comes the steel company proposing to abolish tho grimy work shop, even for one of tho most grimy of industries; to clear up all the dirt and refuse about tho plants, to re duce tho smoke as far as may be, and defy dirt, not by concealment, but by white paint, which puts neat ness on its mettle. And It does this, not in tho name of art and beauty, but in practical efficiency and safety. Therein Is the hopo of making the manufacturing town less often than It is a defilement of the earth. The ash-strewn mill yard, tho dirt-stained factory yjalls, the sewage-laden stream, tho refuse-piled vacant lots among tumbledown laborers' cot tages aro an economic crime. They mean waste, unintolligenco, slovenly work, depression and consequent bad habits among tho workmen, which in tho ond the industry pays for, Quick dividends may come out of dirt and disorder, but at tho cost of human character, and no Industry is on a sound moral or even business basis which does not make for tho happiness and advancing civilization of thoso whoso lives It puts Into its products. iTho grime of industry is nlne tenths merely a tradition of slovenli ness, tolerated through ignorance. Those who dream of tho possibility by tho Citizen Publishing Company. attho postofflce, Honesdalo, Pa. PRESIDENT URB WRITER. E. B. ItAKDENBEROH W. W. WOOD MARCH 23, 1013. of doing the bulk of tho world's work without defiling the earth or blind ing the workers with tho " hell color ed smoke of the factories" are really the prophets of efficiency. ir steel corporations can keep tneir premises clean why cannot some of the glass cutting establish ments? BOOSTING ISN'T A ONE-MAN JOB It appears to be considerably tho duty of newspapers to boost and keep on boosting for tho town and its business men, its institutions, schools, churches, theatres and so forth. But how often do the residents of a town or community let themselves be heard boosting for tho local pa per? A local paper should boost for its town and its business men. It is its editor's duty, becauso tho paper derives at least seventy-five per cent, of Its support from home people of which it Is a part. It is tho duty of every man, woman and child within the city limits to stand stalwart, for their town and say a good word and do a good act whenever an oppor tunity presents itself and in this a newspaper should ever bo found in the front ranks with such a band of town boosters. As has been said a newspaper gets much of its support from the town and tho community and thus in return owes Its support to the town, but what can be said of tho printer may be said of tho grocer, uiu uuiciier, mo ciotmor, tho res taurateur, tho dry goods man, the tailor, the miller and any other who may como to mind. You owe a debt of gratitude to your fellow merchant for being here, for what would the place amount to with only ono busi ness house? What would there bo hero to attract people and Induce them to build comfortable homes, to pay taxes for town improvements, etc.? On the other hand, people from tho country realize that tho town is a great boon to them and adds greatly to the price of their products and to the land on which the product has grown, whether their stock is consumed hero or shipped to other places. The merchant has much of his stock shipped in, yet a largo portion of his trade is in that which ho has purchased at home from tho farmer or the villager, thus deriving tho pa tronage of everyone. The farmer gives his patronage to tho merchant and the merchant to the farmer. Each is enabled to make a profit and all is serene. Yet there are merchants who will not patronize each other, who will send away for their printing, hard ware, groceries, furniture, harness, drugs, etc. Some oven uso safety razors rather than patronizo tho bar ber, will walk or go by train rather than give the local Everyman his fee and will ship in potatoes, cabbages, onions, apples, etc., rather than buy from tho local gardens and farmers. This is not all, though, for tho mer chant complains that tho farmer buys goods in some largo city and will not spend the cash he has earn ed here with local people. It's a sad condition of affairs with a cure hard to find. One merchant states that tho trouble is an easy ono to overcome if all will unite in a deter mined effort to make the country ideal; co-operate in good roads and ever boost and work for one another. Let us ono and all make it a resolve to help our neighbor, advertise our country, boost our town, build new roads, and In fact co-operato in overy manner possible. Wellsboro Advo cate.

HARRISBURG LETTER The new Ehrhardt county asses sors bill, badly mangled and hardly recognizeu, as compared with tho original, passed second reading in the house. It was amended so that in its present form, if enacted, it wouiu apply oniy to Lackawanna county, It was also amended so that tho commissioners can appoint only seven assessors, except in triennial years, when five others are to bo ap pointed. Originally, the bill called for tho appointment of twelve. It also mado it apply to Schuylkill and Westmoreland counties, for it pro vided that it should affect counties having a population of not less than 200,000 nor more than 325.000. Schuylkill has 207,000 and West moreland, 231,000. Lackawanna has 259,000, so the bill was amended to read "not less than 250,000 nor more than 325, 000." Opposition from Schuylkill and Westmoroland counties was re sponsible for tho change. AVhito Slavery to Meet.

WO.MAN SUFFRAGE. Harrlsburg, March 20. Suffrage matters again held the center of the stage in the Legislature this week, dividing attention only with the sev eral bills before the 'Legislature pro posing to create a public utilities commission. 'Senator Francis S. Mcllhenny, chairman of the Senate committeo on Judiciary General, said in an inter view at Harrlsburg last week that he believes the Rockwell resolution will be passed by the Senate. Such an attitude on the part of Senator Mcllhenny is a complete change from his attitude of as recently as one month ago when ho was suspect ed by suffragists, apparently with justification, of being so opposed to equal suffrage that he was danger ously near tho line of unfairness in treating tho Rockwell resolution. Senator Mcllhenny says that tho demonstration at Washington, D. C, on March 3rd has had a great in fluence. Tho rowdy tactics of spectators during tho suffrage par ade In Washington," said Senator Mcllhenny, " directed the attention of many people to the equal suffrage movement who had not regarded it seriously before. Tho demonstra tion seems to havo had the effect of convincing many opponents of suf frage for women of the justice of the demand." Senator Mcllhenny was asked if the Senate Judiciary Gen eral Committee would report the Rockwell resolution favorably. "I cannot answer that question," ho re plied. " Tho Senators voto for them selves." The Pennsylvania Suffrage News, the monthly official organ of tho Pennsylvania Woman Suffrage As sociation, completed its first volume of twelve numbers with the March issue, which has been mailed to sub scribers. At the same time it has been discontinued. Owing to tho altered condition of the Suffrago movement, the State Executive Com mittee at its monthly meeting in Harrlsburg on March 0th decided that the expenditure of time and money upon the Pennsylvania Suf rage News could bo used to better ad vantage In other directions in its campaign, and It has, therefore, dis continued publication with thanks to all the friends who have helped It. Tho National House of Represen tatives has recently appointed Rich ard Plerson Habson, Samuel J. Trlb blo and Stephen J. Porter members of a committee to investigate and re port on the question of tho advisa bility of action by Congress to ex tend tho suffrage to women. This is the first time such a committee has been appointed by Congress. The Congressional Committee of the National Woman Suffrago Asso ciation, has announced that it con siders the Washington suffrage par ado as merely tho beginning of its campaign for an amondment to the Constitution of the United States en franchising the women of all states. The Committeo will maintain per manent headquarters in Washington. It is already lining up members of both Houses in favor of the amend ment. That tho lack of police pro tection afforded during tno suffrage parade has greatly helped the cause of votes for woman is generally ad mitted. RULES TO KEEP YOU STRAIGHT. Keep good company.

Sumner, who for five years while presiding eld er of tho Honesdalo district of the Wyoming conference, was a resident of Honesdale. He still has a number of lovable friends who with the Citl zen extend heartiest congratulations to tne reverend gentlemen. "Stroller," In Monday's Scranton irioune-uepubllcan, paid Rev. J. B. Sumner the following complimen tary notice: "Thousands of readers of tho Methodist faith in Scranton and vi clnlty, I am sure, will be interested in tne birthday celebration of Rev. J. B. Sumner of BInghamton, who will be seventy-five years old on March 25. While an earnest and elo quent pulpit orator, Rev. John B. Sumner has probably been best known in the Wyoming conference through his efforts as a writer of re iiyiuua songs ana nis talents as a vocalist. Mr. Sumner's musical ca reer began during his bovhood duvs And it has been kept up through his years of service as a minister of the gospel. Probably the most popular of his many contributions to sacred song is tho hymn: "I'm tho Child of a King." This song was written in the days of tho early triumphs of tho celebrated Wyoming Conference trio. The trio composed of Mr. Sumner, me late uev. w. is. westlake, and Rev. J. C. Leacock. now of Scran ton, led the music at every confor- ence for many years. Their services were often In demand elsewhere. and they were frequently heard In church concerts whenever these en tertainments could be arranced In si way tnat would not Interfere with tnelr regular work. Tho death of Rev. W. B. Westlake, tho tenor of the trio, appears to havo broken ud tho organization that In the nast furnish ed so much inspiration for lovers of song at tho conference meetings and other gatherings of importance to the Methodists. No one seems to have been able to take the place of tho member whoso sweet voice blended so harmoniously with thoso of his brothors In tho days when tho Wyoming conference trio was one of tne most celebrated organizations of this region. It Is likely that thous ands In Northern Pennsylvania and Southern New York will loin in the wish that this devout man, who has spent nearly a half century in the work of disseminating the gospel, may celebrate many more birthdays and that the sunset of his life may bo fraught with peace and happiness."

Washington. A storm of cyclonic fury, which started In Northern Texas Just as Spring was being ushered In, swopt east and northward, causing tho deaths of fully a hundred persons, in juring hundreds of others, and damag ing property to tho extent of millions of dollars. Extending through parts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Ar kansas, Missouri, Kentucky and Ten nessee, the storm crossed the Ohio River and passed through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and western New York. Definite advices have been received accounting for at least sixty-nine per sons dead. Reports from Alabama show the loss of life was heaviest In thnf. atnto. Tha number of dead there is definitely placed at forty-five. The town of Lower Peach Tree was wined ouL Two are dead In Indiana, three in Ten nessee, two in Ohio, two in New York, one in Michigan, one in Louisiana, and one In Texas. Accompanying the death lists urn ostlmates of injured totaling more than 200. ThO property loss was henvv nil along tho storm's track. Besides de molishing or unroofing buildings and felling trees, the high winds, rain, hail and sleet did serious damace to early crops. Estimates of loss hv damage to property of all sorts from Indiana and Michigan alone total S2. 000,000. Not in many years has there been such prostration of telecraDh and tolephone service. Chlcacn wns nut off for hours from communication with points east. Only by devious routes was connection finally estnhllshfid. Railroad traffic was seriously delayed in many districts where wire com. munlcatlon was crippled and washouts occurred. Tho wind attained rennrd vnlnnlMon at some points. Detroit reported 88 miles an hour, the Weather Bureau's high record in that city. In Tennessee nrobablv twnlvn worn killed, two in Indiana, three In Ohio, two in New York, ono in MlRsnnrl. nnn in Michigan, two in Louisiana, whilo at least three were lost when their fishing smacks were overturned in Lake Erie. A telegraph wire blockade, the like of which the country has not known in years, also resulted. All telegraphic communication between New York city and Chicago was absolutely nil. Every one of the 200 trunk wires be tween the two cities were "lost." The storm visited Chicago In bliz zard form and the streets are covered with ice, half a dozen persons being seriously hurt. Street traffic was practically suspended. Western Pennsylvania suffered heav ily from the windstorm. At East Pitts burgh a house was wrecked and three persons were seriously hurt. In Mount Pleasant, Pa., windows wore blown in and the steeple of a church toppled over. At Latrobe a horse and wagon wore picked up by the gale and blown across the street. Eastern and Central West Virginia were storm swept with heavy property loss. The Middle West felt tho grip of a blizzard, ono of the severest of tho entire winter. The cold wave en veloped nearly all tho States between the Rocky and Alleghany Mountains and the great lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. The freezing woather extends as far south as the Gulf of Mexico. Many persons were Injured in north ern Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and southeastern Missouri, In Missis sippi tho storm was severe from Gre nada to Water Valley. Two persons were killed and sov eral injured in Centraliana, Ind. The wind reached a velocity of 75 miles an hour.

THE PRICE OF NEWSPAPERS. Tho price of Mr. Munsey's Boston Journal has been increased from ono cent to three. Mr. Munsey frankly admits that ho has been losing mon ey at the lower rate. Tho Now York Evening Post regards this decision as but one of the signs in tho jour nalistic heavens that tho one-cent newspaper has been overdone. All the Bridgeport papers recently in creased their price from one to two cents. An influential western paper, the Kansas City Star, increased its price 50 per cent on January 1st. Not long ago the confident talk was that all newspapers would find them selves forced to go at ono cent. But It is the one-cent newspapors that aro bing forced to go back to two or three. The hard business facts, tho rising cost of production, and the need of living on something besides sensation, havo been too much for rash journalistic theorists. It Is probable that newspapers abandon ing the one-cent price will hereafter be more numerous than those adopt ing It. A good many newspapers which fixed their subscription prico original ly at S6.00 si vpnr h.tvn nAvpr toiIiip. ed it and probably are now con gratulating tnemseives on tnelr nerve and wisdom.
