pages, Instead of six, the past couple
of days on account of the fact that the
newspaper office has been moved Into

Spirit Publishing Co. and It takes some
time to take down and set up the
presses and get them adjusted to the
new location. The new home of the
Sphit Is one of the most imposing
structures in Punxsutawney, In fact It
Is the only "sky-soraper" In this sec
tion. We congratulate the Spirit Co.
on being able to move into tuoh a fine
home, and the citizens of Punxsu
tawney should appreciate the efforts
of the Spirit Co. to give that town
a good dally and a newspaper building
which the citizens can be proud of.
The liberal support of the merchants
and business men in general of Punxsu
tawney made it possible for Messrs.
W. O. Smith and John P. Wilson to
erect such a magnificent seven-story
building in that town.

tended. Since the last meeting over
forty new membership cards had been
issued and many new nierabnrs were
present. In the absence of President
Caldwell Vice-President Charles M.
Dinger Oiled the chair.
The Assocla Ion Is working on a num
ber of important projects which were
thoroughly gone over. Most Important
of these Is the effort to secure resump
tion of work at the silk mil'. The sec
retary read a number of important
communications from officers of the
company, the tenor of which was that
the worK of the re-orgHnizatlon com
mittee Is now almost completed and
that In a very short time an announce
ment of importance to every stockhold
er of the American Silk Company will
be made. And upon t his report will
depend In a largo measure the future of
the Reynoldsvlllo mill.
A largo number of business men will
visit the plant of the Blaw Collapsible

this morning that a number of high
officials of the company are coming
Friday to Inspect the plant.
The committee appointed to visit the
publlo schools made a report highly
complimentary to the management of
Prof. Rife and his corps of assistants.
Valuable suggestions were made and
the committee seemed to have accom
plished its work so well that by motion
a second committee of Ave was appoint
ed to make another visit, the members
being Mayor J. D. Williams, C. R. Hall,
Dr. Thos. F. Nolan, Warren W. Deibie,
and E. Wray Hunter.

sun goes down the Association will
number a round two hundred on Its roll.
Under the new 11.00 a year rate .'there
Is no excuse for any citizen remaining
outside and while the sum from each Is
small, collectively It will form fa; sub
stantial fund with which to oarry on
the work of securing new Industries.
When the committees meets you to-day
put up your dollar without haggling.
A committee composed of F S. Hoff
man, P. B. Love and J. M. Humphrey
was appointed to see about having the
swinging bridge near B., R. & P. sta
station repaired.
It was the night for making the an
nual nominations but on account of the
large number of new members enrolled
and the certainty of many more joining
to-day, it was deemed best to name a
committee of three, consisting of J. W.
Gillespie, J. D. Williams and J. O.
Edelblute, to select suitable candidates
for the various offices. When their re
port is made two weeks hence the As
sociation will have the privilege of ad-
ding to it if they so desire.

will be held March 23rd.
