AGITATION FOR MUNICIPAL
BUILDING MEETS FAVOR
,.-But Insufficient Time Prevents
Action By Council This
There baa been s feeling among our
progressive citizens for sometime that
municipal building should be erected,
and last year the council advertised for
proposals for site for the building In
tending to take some action nn the
matter this year, but on account of the
fact that the borough will be com
pelled to put In a sewage disposal
works this year that will cost over
$50,000 the half of which will be paid
by the state council decided at the
meeting January 4th not to take any
action at present on the erection of
The executive oommltteo of the
Business Men's Association held a
special meeting Friday night, passed
a resolution and appointed a committee
- to request council to reconsider their
action of 4th Inst, and submit the
'question of bonding the borough for
" a municipal hulldlng to the voters at
at the February election.
President Young states that it would
require a bond issue cottce to be
' published alx times, and as there were
only five Issues of the town papers after
the Association committee made the
request, it was men too late to can
a special meeting of council to re
consider the matter before the Feb
ruary election. '

Who Is the Real Town "Knocker" ?
How natural it U to blame the other
fellow, forgetting we are just as guilty.
A stream of wator cannot rise natur
ally above its tmurce, neither can a
community reach a higher piano than
is made possible by its own citizens.
Our community gives us our good
schools, our fine paved streets, our civil
protection, etc, because our property
value justifies them by taxation, be
cause the community has made it pos
sible by improved condition in real es
tate. Our beautiful and finely furnish
ed churches were constructed by this
same citizenship. Our pleasant Boclal
surroundings are the result of this same
interest in the community.
These improvements were brought
about In the past years when we all
joined our forces to build up our com
munity to the highest possible s'andard
of excellence: but it looks now as if we
are by our own selfish motives, by slow
process, undermining the possibility of
maintaining its standard.
This la done by using the revenue
you are receiving from your own com
munity to support other communities
rather than your own. Who furnishes
the possibility for your employment as
a banker, a professional man, a mer
chant, an agent, or any business or labor
you may be engaged in. Are you de
pending on your home community or on
some other. We believe this Is furnish
ed very largeiy by our borne commun
ity. Then are we not under obligation
to give to it all possible support? But
we know we are not doing this when
the banker, the professional man, the
agent or any other citizen buys what is
wanted to supply bis family's needs in
some other community, leaving your
own community to support itself from
the little articles you forgot while pa
tronizing the other commuuity. Sorda
one comes into our community with a
sheet of paper as large as an advertise
ment tor a big tent show from Bomo
other community, the bead line of
which reads, "Bargain Sale, Doors
open at 9 a. m.," and how we plan and
arrange, so that we will be ready to go
on the early train that we may be In
waiting when the maeolve doors swing
open to let the bargains (?) loose. We
secure some bargains and we hurry
borne and as soon as we arrive we send
out and call our neighbors In to have
them rejoice with us In our purchases
at so great a saving, while the fact of
the matter is, our home community is
offering the same goods every day in
tue year for less money, . We hear some
one say, "I won't leave my community,"
yet some nice covered wagon, all orna
mented with fancy letters, stops at your
home and a representative has some
thing purer than you ever saw and
you believe him, M though a stranger
to you; but be fixes your confidence by

THE CITIZENS NATIONAL BANK
PENNIES IN THE
' RURAL MAIL BOXES
Very Annoying to the Carriers
These Cold Days.
From a recent count made by rural
carriers In one of the oountles in the
state of New York of coins deposited
by patrons In their boxes lor the pur
chase of stamp supplies, it was found
that each carrier in the county was
collecting an average of 115 one-cent
coins each week. - This average
applied to all the routes In operation
throughtout the country would give
the enormous total of about 300,000,000
As most of these coins are deposited
loose in boxes, the postollioe depart
ment requosts, that patrons' provide
themselves with stamp supplies in ad
vance of their noeds, and to equip their
boxes with suitable coin-holding re
ceptacles. The picking of loose coins
from boxes not only results in needless
hardship and suffering to carriers in
winter weather, delays the delivery and
collection of the mails, but frequently
results In actual money loss to the
carriers, for if, in collecting coin from
boxes, they drop them into the snow
or on the ground without' recovery,
tbey are required to replace the amount
out of their own funds.

Postmaster Burns And A Sled
Load of People Almost
Saturday evening Postmaster E. C.
Burns, who owns the Burns livery,
took a four horse load of people from
Wishaw to a farm house near Punxsu
tawney to spend the evening. On the
return trip at a late hour the party had
a narrow esoape on the Adrian coal
road orossing near Elk Run. Mr. Burns
drove up to the orossing carefully, and
on account of some cars standing near
the orossing, be did not bear the ap
proach of an engine until it had almost
run them down. He saw the danger In
time to swing the front team, which
jumped and pulled the other team and
front part of sled around just In time to
esoape the engine, whloh whizzed past
wltnout a train. . The engineer had
failed to whistle for the orossing. A
bait minute later and the sled load of
jolly slelghriders would have been run
down by the engine.
Mr. Burns lost a ten-dollar string of
bells on the home trip and thinks he
lost the belli at the Elk Run railroad

I JThe question of ereoting a municipal
building was brought up and dlsoussed
by all members present. Owing to the
fact that the borough's permit for emp
tying sewage into waters of the state
expires May 1, 1910, and council must
furnish to the state department a com
prehensive plan For a sewage disposal
works by that date, it was decided that
Bction on a municipal building should
bn deferred untilthe borough learna
what action the tate Intends to take.
The report of Ibe state engineer, who
investigated the sewage question In
ReynoldsviHe, was that the cost of the
proposed disposal works would not be
less than $50,000, which is more than

proposed plan finished in time to be
