Spans the Distance .
Miles may separate your home from the stores
and time-consuming trains or trolleys make
the "going" hard.
But the Bell Telephone knows neither time nor
distance and YOU may be "next door" to
the shops and stores if you Use the Bell.
In these days of fall preparations, a Bell Tele
phone would be a mighty help. Call the
Business Office to-day.

on Jttn. J. lierore- that, In President
Cleveland's ndnilnlstrntlon, the recep
tion was callejl off on New Year's
morning because of tbo death of the
daughter of the secretary of state,
Thomas P. Rnyard.
Thousands of Hands to Shake.
The New Year's reception was par
ticipated In by the entire diplomatic
corps, supremo court, both houses of
congress, all the high officials of the
national government and all nrmy.
nnvy and marine officers in or near
Washington. It also was the occasion
on which thousands of American citi
zens from the private walks of life
stood in line for hours for the chance
of entering the White House and shak
ing hands with the president.
There nre many Indications that the
reception will not bo revived duriug
the present administration. For many
years officials at the White House have
protested mildly against the traditional
ceremony, which they felt involved cer
tain discomfort to the president and
his family, besides considerable respon
sibility for the secret service men
controlling the enormous crowds.
Many presidents have suffered great
pain as a result of having their hands
wrung so often in one day. President
Roosevelt is said to have shaken the
hands of 8,000 people one New Year's
day, aud even his powerful physique
felt the strain. Other presidents have
had to have their arms wrapped In
bandages and rubbed with ointment for
several days following the public re
ception. These are not the only reasons, how
ever, that are thought to Influence
President Wilson In abandoning the re
ception. Just before ho took office ho
let it be known that he was opposed
to the inaugural ball. Then a recep
tion was suggested, and ho opposed
that. It was said at the time that If
tlio managers of the Inauguration In
sisted on a ball he would attend, but
the members of his family would not
accompany him. It is believed that
the decision regarding the New Year's
reception Is a logical sequel of his at
titude toward the ball.
The secretary of state and Mrs. Bry
an will glvo the annual breakfast to
the diplomatic corps regardless of the
change of plan nt the White House.
This attention from the secretary of
state to tbo diplomats has come to bo
only a little less Important than the
Whlto nouse reception.
Feels Need of a Rest.
According to the announcement made
from the White House, President Wil
son feels tho need of n complete rest,
which be can take more conveniently
at Christmas than at any other time.
He Is contemplating a short out of
town trip and docs not wish to bo
obliged to return to Washington before
the reassembling of congress early In
tho new year. Tho authoritative an
nouncement on' the subject is as fol
lows: "The usual Now Year recentlon of
tho president will not be held Jan. f!f
1914. The departure from custom on
this occasion Is duo to tho fact that
tho president will not be In Washing
ton at that time. Owing to tho Ions
session of congress, tho president has
had 'no vacation since his Inaugura
tion. As tbo approaching session of
congress will bo the long session, the
only opportunity for tho president to
secure a rest will be during tho usual
holiday recess of congress."
It Is posslblo that President and Mrs.
Wilson may pass Now Year's day in
tho canal zone, as tho secretary of war
has urged the president to make Pana
ma the objective point of his vacation
trip. The president and Mrs. Wilson
lire, however, reported as not being
anxious to mako the' Panama trip at
this time, because tbey expect to at

Sunbury on tho motion of H. S.
Knight, of Sunbury, local counsel for

found against tho commissioner and
other officials for falling to maintain
a road between Shamokln and Mount
Carmel. The argument was made by
Attorney General John C. Bell and
Deputy William M. Hargest and the
brief for the State raises several
questions of far-reaching conse
quence. They include these points:
Tho Highway Commissioner Is the
agent of the State, which is sov
ereign. The commissioner Is not like sup
ervisors, who have power to levy
taxes for improvements and main
tenance, and who can be indicted;
the commissioner can only spend
what is voted to him by the Legisla
ture and Is subject to a criminal pros
ecution if he does not draw it tho
way the law provides or overdraws.
The commissioner is given dis

AT A GLANCE.
Steel mills contlnuo to curtail op
erations by reducing working days,
hours and tho number of workers.
Half schedules by Christmas are pre
dicted for the trade as a whole. Rail
mills are especially in need of speci
fications. Greater competition
among the wire drawers resulted
in a drop of $1 per ton in all sections
last week, and $2 per ton In the south
end of the Ohio valley. Nails are
now selling at $1.50 to $1.55, and
plain wiro nt $1.30 to $1.35 for im
mediate specifications, yet the largest
interests are accumulating stocks bo
fore mill operations are cut down to
tho minimum. Tin plate mills also
are accumulating stock, although
fair orders are coming from can
manufacturers and meat and salmon
packers. Steel building work

TUBERCULOSIS SUNDAY DEC. 7.
Tuberculosis day is to be observed
again this year, Dec. 7, and n general
notico of it is asked. While the
work is being done to stamp out this
needless disease, its ravages do not
attract the attention they should,
because they occur separately and in
dividually. A Titanic disaster gets
the big headlines, while the efforts
to stop an infinitely more destructive
disease attract comparatively little
notice. When will some people learn
the menace to health caused by tho
habit of spitting on sidewalks and
other public places? Ten years ago
it is recalled that In one of the most
Intelligent cities of the country, an
anti-spitting ordinance was hooted
out of the city council, as an infringe
ment on every day privileges,. There
has been a gain since then, but the
habit continues. A man may have
no communicable disease himself,
but every time he expectorates on
the walk, he encourages some victim
of tuberculosis toMo his deadly work.
It is in this way that the majority of
cases are distributed. Pittston Ga

No less than 83,351,191, barrels of
Portland natural and other cements
were produced in the United States
in 1912, according to an advance
statement by Ernest F. Burchard, of
the United States geological survey.
This great quantity represented a
value of $C7, 401,513, an Increase of
3,803,233 barrels, valued at $756,
377, over tho preceding year.
Of this "cement, 82,438,090 bar
rels, valued at $G7,01G,928, were
Portland cement, and 821,231 bar
rels, valued at $307,222, of natural
During the year tho shipments of
Portland cement amounted to 85,
012,550 barrels, valued at $69,109,
800, as compared with 75,547,829
barrels, valued at $C3,762,G38, In
1911. The average price per barrel
by these figures was 81.3 cents in
1912, as against 84.4 cents in 1911,
This represents the value of tho ce
ment in bulk in tho mills, including
labor and cost of packing, but not
the value of sacks and barrels.
The average price per barrel
through the country was 13.9 cents
higher than it was in the Lehigh dis
trict, where It was sold at the cheap
est rate, and was near the average
price received in the Iowa-Missouri
district, but was 54.5 cents lower
than the price brought along the Pa
cific coast where It was the highest.
