DEATH OF HIGHLY
THE MAN WHO
KNOCKS HIS TOWN
VETERANS' REUNION IN
REYNOLDSVILLE IN 1910
Mrs. Mary Humphrey Passed
Peacefully Away Thursday
ALMOST SEVENTY YEARS OLD
Mrs. Mary J. Humphrey, relict of
Richard Humphrey, peacefully passed
out of this life at 5.30 p. m. Thursday,
July 22, 1909, at the home of her daugh
ter, Mrs O. H. Broadhead, in Winslow
township, near Rathmel, after twelve
month of illness from stomach trouble.
The transition from terrestial to celes
. tial scenes was as peaceful and gentle
as a babe falling asleep on its mother's
bosom. A long, faithful and consistent
christian life had prepared her for the
summons of the Death Angel and she
1 was ready to go.
Mary Jane Slack was the maiden
name of deceased. She was born In
Huntington county, Pa., September 22,
1839, and was 69 years and 10 months
old at time of death. Her parents
moved to Warsaw, Jefferson county,
during her early life and In that com
munity lived a family named Hum
phrey, and In 1859 Miss Mary J. Slack
and Richard Humphrey were united
in marriage. They moved to. Prescott
vllle over forty years ago, and after
ward resided in Reynoldsville, moving
from here to Beaver, Pa., about eigh
teen years ago.
February 16, 1904, five years ago last
February, Mr. Humphrey closed his
eyes in death and Mrs. Humphrey after
that lived with her oldest daughter,
Funeral service was held at the
Broadhead homestead at 2.00 p. m.
Sunday, conducted by Rev. Dr. A. J.
Meek, paBtor of First Baptist church
of Reynoldsville, and interment was
made in the Reynoldsville cemetery
beside the husband. Hughes & Flem
ing, of Reynoldsville, were funeral di
rectors. Mrs. Humphrey was the mother of
even children, five of whom survive
her. They are: John H. Humphrey,
Of Butler, George B. Humphrey, of
DuBols, Mrs. O. H. Broadhead, of
Winslow township, Mrs. M. I. Mc
. CreIght, of DuBols, and C. Everett
Humphrey, of Sykesvllle.
Mrs. Humphrey's life was a rare
Jewel, her Bplrlt as gold refined In the
fire, ready for heaven. Her journey
of life was almost three score and ten.
It was a path marked with deeds of
kindnesB and cheer. Flowers, not
thorns, sunshine, when possible, and
not shadows, did she scatter every
where along life's pathway. When the
bloom of childhood was blooming Into
the blush of refined womanhood she
sought the "Pearl of Great Price" and
made it chief among the jewels of her
life. The intervening years from
.girlhood to sunset of life had been
full of consistent planning and wise
. '"They saw not the lift of the curtain,
Nor heard the Invisible door,
. As she passed where life's problems uncertain
Will follow and vex ber no more.
'They lingered and wept on the threshold
-v nThe threshold each mortal must cross
'Then they laid a new wreath down upon It,
To mark a new sorrow and Iobs."

Independents Win by a Score
Of 8 to 3 in an Interesting
A very interesting game of base ball
was played last Wednesday afternoon
between the Independents and Col
legians, which resulted In a victory for
the Independents by a score of 8-3.
Haggerty was on the slab for the Inde
pendents and Brocks, a recruit from
Brookville, did the fancy work for the
Collegians. Both pitchers did good
work throughout the game, Haggerty
having 10 strike outs and Brooks 12.
Williams aud Bohren, ot the Indepen
dents, led with the stick, each one se
curing two hits. Haggerty was al
most invincible, allowing only three
hits, two of which were on the scratch
order. Brooks pitched a good game
and with perfect support tne game
would haye been close, but the Indepen
ents hit at opportune times and the re
sult of the game was decided.
These teams got together Monday af
ternoon of this week and the Collegians
were thumped to the tune of 22 to 10.

Interesting Historical Sketch
Written For The Star By
A Noted Forester.
When did the United States begin
the practice of Forestry? Few persons
can answer the question correctly.
Most people are of the opinion that the
beginning of forestry in this country
was of very recent origin, and that
the first step in that direction was
taken among the mountains of the far
west. Neither fact Is correct.
While Washington was serving his
first term as President of the United
States, a recommendation came to him
that the government ought to buy live
oak Islands on the coast of Georgia to
make sure of a supply of ship timber
for war vessels. The Idea appears to
have originated with Joshua Hum
phreys, whose official title was "Con
structor of the Up! ted States Navy,"
although about the only navy then
existing was made up of six ships on
paper, and not one stick of timber to
build them had yet been cut. The
vessels were designed to fight the north
Five years after the recommendation
was made Congress appropriated money
to buy oak land. Grover and B'ack
beard islands on the coast of Georgia
were bought for 22,50O. They con
tained 1,050 acres.
Louisiana was bought soon after,
and In 1817 the Six Islands, of 19,000
acres, and containing 37,000 live oak
trees, were withdrawn from sale, and
Bet apart as a reserve. In 1825, Con
gress appropriated $10,000 to buy ad
ditional live oak land on Santa Rosa
Sound, Western Florida, and subse
quently other Florida timber lands,
aggregating 203,224 acres, were re
served. Up to that time nothing more had
been done to buy or reserve land for
the timber growing naturally upon It;
but the work was to be carried further
upon the Santa Rosa purchase. The
plan Included planting, protecting, cul
tivating, and cutting live oak for the
navy. The timber was then considered
Indispensable in building war vessels.
Much had been said and written of the
danger of exhaustion of supply. Set
tlers destroyed the timber to clear land,
and Europeon nations were buying
large quantities lor their navles. In
response to repeated , warnings the
Government finally took steps to grow
timber for its own use.
Young oaks were planted on the
Santa Rosa lands. Difficulty was ex
perienced in inducing young trees to
grow. The successful transplanting of
the oak is not easy, unless done at the
proper time and In the right way.
The plantations at Santa Rosa were
generally unsuccessful; but large quan
tities of acorns were planted, and a fair
proportion of them grew. But the
chief efforts were directed to pruning,
training and caring for the trees.
Thickets about them were cut away
to let In air and light.
What the ultimate success of the
forestry work would have been cannot
be told. The civil war brought a com
plete change In war vessels by substi
tuting iron for wood. Forestry work
stopped. The timber reserves were
neglected. Squatters occupied the
land. After a number of years all the
reserves, except some of the Florida
land, were opened for settlement.
A four Inning game ot base ball be
tween members of Knights of Pythias
and P. O. S. of A. was played after six
o'clock last evening. Score 7-4 in favor
of the K, of P. This was the first of a
series of three games to be played by
members of these two orders.

If He Is Out of Sympathy with
His Town He Should Get
Out Of It.
When one finds be Is out of Bymyatby
with bis town and can only eay a good
word for It coupled with an apology, he
ought to get out. Many people fall Into
a sort of unconscious bablt of growling.
But Its a miserable habit. Such people
make of themselves a dead weight,
while, of course, tbey Imagine them
selves particularly Independent. The
individual has about all he can do to
get along under his own loads, and he
wants help and encouragement from
those going his way and who are Iden
tified with him In Interest. So with
the town. It has Its Interests to care
for and it needs all the pulck, all the
energy, all the co-operation and help
fulness Its citizens can provide and
bring to bear. Every man Is a part of
his own town. The town embraces the
fortunes, and In some measure at least,
talma on the character of the man. So
loyalty to one's town Is no more than
loyalty to one's self; and this loyalty is
In the line of all well shaped human
nature. Therefore It Is right to say
that the man who does not stand up for
his town Is In some way dwarfed. There
is something wrong about him. His
fellows will pass this judgment upon
him, and the chances are that while he
may add to the discomfort of others he
will not escape making himself unhap

Be Proud of a Garden.
Why shouldn't a man be proud of a
fine garden that be has made with his
own hards? A good garden cannot be
produced without some degree of judg
ment, care and skill. It Is the fruit of
more or less labor and to that extent Is
proof that the man Is not lazy. To
plant and cultivate shows a certain so
licitude of the future and therefore
proves Its owner to be provident. If a
man has lettuce, onions and radishes
of his own he Is not likely to pilfer from
his neighbor. Hence a garden Is proof
of honesty and Industry and to some ex
tent sobriety, for a man who loves to
fuss around In a garden seldom drinks
anything but water and buttermilk.
Dedication Day Set.
Governor Edwin S. Stuart has fixed
Wednesday, October 20, as the date for

the monument Is being erected, to and
