AGITATION FOR MUNICIPAL BUILDING MEETS FAVOR ,.-But Insufficient Time Prevents Action By Council This Spring. 1 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 muotcpal building. 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.

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 (Continued on Fourth Page) The First National Bank OF REYNOLDSVILLE.

"t 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 one-cent coins. 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.

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 orossing.

Willie Invariably avoiding grade crossings on new and revised construc tion work, the Pennsylvania Railroad has, in the lust ten years, been elimin ating all erodings at grade as rapidly as practicable.

These flgurts are of record of September 1st. l!0ft. and do not iodide the ten crossings to be eliminated by the change of line to be made through Bristol, Pa., 00 the New York division.

This year, 1910, Lent will begin on Feb. 0, fifteen-days earlier than It did last year, so that Easter Sundav will fall on Maroh 27, Instead of April 11, as It did last year. Inasmuch as the first full moon after the vernal equinox, which falls on Maroh 21, each year, marks the proper date, it is evident that this voar will be near the record for early dating. It will be the second earliest Eiater in a quarter of a century, that of March 24, 1894. being the nearest to the vernal equinox in mat period. .
