the Record are those of the Lehigh

letter to tho Philadelphia Record.
In speaking of the farm lands of

er says in part: " These lands are
better than those that reared Abra
ham Lincoln, and just as good as
those 'farmed by Washington at ML
Vernon or Jefferson at Montlcello.
Tho bankers say that of the $4,000,
000 in deposits In Wayne county the
farmers hold the largest share.
These farmers , manage to maintain
1,000 miles of public road, besides
sustaining schools and churches; but
many of our boys and girls have left
the lure of the city and have gone to
Scranton and other cities, and thero
are good farms tenantless In this
county farms that can be purchas
ed for less than the labor cost on
them; farms which under good till
ago will yield a good return; farms
where people can llye In a healthful,
sanitary manner; farms where fam
ilies can bo reared in righteousness,
with sons and daughters fitted for
usefulness, much better than In the
city. Come, all you land-hungry;
there is land enough at fair prices
If you really want It."

MITTEE. STATE ISSUING NEW
Highways Department Records Show
An Increase of 30,100 for Last
Year Over 1012.
On and after January 1 all own
ers and operators of automobiles,
motorcycles and other motor-driven
vehicles must display 1914 licenses.
They aro the same size as those now
in use, but the new ones have white
figures and a black background. Li
censes for solid tired vehicles have
an added aluminum plate, showing
tne weight or the vehicle for which
the license is Issued.

have been sent by express.
The highways department shows
that 131,239 licenses were Issued in
1913 against 92,139 for 1912, an In
crease of 39,100.

of the new act is that fixing the ago
limit of those who may operate cars.

allowed to run a car on any public
highway, no exception being made In
The act Also gives the commission
er of highways tho right to revoke

er and the registration of any car for
improper conduct in the operation
cf the machine.
The Fact Remains
No amount of misrepresentation by the
peddlers of alum baking powders, no jug
gling with chemicals, or pretended analysis,
or cooked-up certificates, or falsehoods of
any kind, can change the fact that
has been Sound hy the offi
cial exaaiaSRaMons to be of the
liigliesl leavening efficiency,
free from alum, and of absolute
purify and wnolesomeness.
