demonstrated that it is impossible to keep

case it was established that young Venn
was seen in the hotel office a short time
before the money was abstracted and
that he exhibited more money during
the following few days than he could pos
sibly have earned. The defendant was
unable to give a satisfactory explanation
of how he came by the money.
In order to even up with Mr. Marietta
Vaun lodged two informations against
.him; one charging him with selling
liquor to minors, and the other with
selling liquor to men of kuown intemper
ate habits. The defense offered t prove
that the young men who testified to hav
ing bought liquor at the Merchants' Hotel
bad represented themselves as being of
legal age. This was objected to and was
ruled out by the Court. A verdict of
guilty was returned on both counts
Samuel Brant and Henry Boger, of
near Hay's Mill, who were unablo to
settle a dispute with their fists appealed
to the Court to interfere, w ith the result
that the defendant Boger was found
guilty of assault and battery and was sen

a fine of five dollars.
A. J. Lowry, charged with selling
liquor without license on information of
Jacob Si bert, was acquitted by the jury.
The cost were divided between the pros
ecutor and defendant, the jury evidently
taking the position that the county should
not be taxed with the costs of such trivial
casus. The testimony offered by the
commonwealth went to show that Lowry
had sold two or three pints of whisky.
The defendant denied that he had sold
whisky and offered testimony to show
that the prosecution was through malice.

A Better Day Dawning for Somerset
Mr. Editor: I do not know who ls
the supervisor of Mil lord township, or
who worked the road over which I drove
on my way to Samuel's church Sunday
morning, but permit me to say I was de
lighted. Soon as I got outside our bor
ough limits it was impossible for me to
recognize the road, lcaue It was scien
ti tii-ally worked with one of their large
"Road Machines." This continued for
several miles, and it was a genuine pleas
ure to drive over that piece of road. Ev
idently the parties who dressed that road
understand handling the machiue, and
have profited from your F'anuers' Insti
Good roads are a special delight to me
and Iad ones an abomination. Liberty
Valley, in which I Vpent over 17 years
before coming to this county, is notoc for
its fine roads. The beds are all made
rounding, free from spring breakers, and
every little stone removed with a garden
rake. Hence, you can imagine my feel
ing when first I drove over the roads of
this county, some of which reminded mo
of the bottom of a dried-np watercourse.
toon after I came here, one of my friends
asked me how I liked the country. I re
plied, you certainly have a magnificently
beautiful country, but it is like Jericho,
whose waters were bitter. Your roa.Ls
Since then I have more than once felt
the righteous indignation rising in my
soul as I was jolted over these hollow
roads which not nnfrequently brought to
my mind the pauper's dirge:
" K-iUle his bones over the ston,
lie's only a isiuper whom nobody owns."
Last year Milford township purchased
two fine road machines, and Sunday
morning, as I drove over this road, I felt
like singing the long meter doxology.
While I do not mean to say that the
road over which I drove has been dress
ed to perfection, for in some places the
sides, i. e. between the ruts and ditches,
ought to be scraped down more, and in
some places the center of the bed ought
to bo still higher, I do not hesitate to say
it is the best work on the road I have
seen in Somerset county, and if that sort
will be continued for several years, I do
verily believe that real estate will greatly
advance In value, and I would uot be
surprised if profanity would diminish, at
least on the part of teamsters, and I
know we would all feel happier when we
drive over the roads to visit our friends,
and more like worshiping God when we
got to church. Hence I can see the
dawning of the hope in that prophetic
darkey song :
" lie better tlma am coniln',
Iu de year o Jubilee."

Irrigation For Wheat.
In our Western States where irrigation
is practiced and where it is necessary for
the production of a full crop, peculiari
ties have been noticed which would not
have been brought to the notice of an
Eastern farmer. Thus, for instance, it
has been found first by practical experi
ence and afterwards by practical experi
ment that irrigation during the day will
produce grain in the wheat crop, while
the same amount of water turned on
during the night will promote the gt owth
oft best raw. This is not mere guess
work, but is the result of experiments at
the Utah Experiment Station. It has also
been found tiiat timothy irrigated during
tho day with a given amount of water
makes a greater growth than by the same
amount of water applied duringthe night.
It has also been found that the char
aaer of the soil has much to w ith the
growth of the crop as well as the amount
of water required. On a rather stiff,
gravelly clay it was found that two feet
of water would produce about the same
crop which required three and one-hair
feet on a more sandy soil. On certain
soils it was found that the maximum
crop of grain (wheat), could be produced
with Torty inches of water, while but six
teen i nches was necessary to give the
maximum crop of straw.
. It has also been fou nd that the fre
quency of application, the amount of
water used being the same in all cases,
has more or less effect upon the crop. On
this soil it was found that a givea appli
cation every twelve days produced the
best result, and that if the same amount
of water were applied at either shorter or
longer intervals the effect was shown in
marked falling off in the total crop pro

Will Vaoste Ciirah Piropertle.
During the past week tho members of
the United Evangelical Church, of Som
erset circuit, were asked to vacate the
church property occupied by them. The
demand was mado . by Edward 15.
Eidicr, jitlcraey for the so-called Fvan
gelical Association of North America,
who claims said property by reason of a
decision of tho Supreme Court to w hich
an appeal was made a few years ago, af
ter alt efforts to arbitrate the church dif
ferences in a Christian manner had
The Presiding F:ider, Rev. T. Bach,
and the preacher in charge. Rev. D. L.
Yoder, were requested to mako the con
veyance of the property unconditional.
This they refused to do without first con
sulting their people, those who had erect
ed the churches at great sacrifice years
ago. Monday, June 1st, was agreed upon
as m day when the members of the church
should gather together from the different
charges and take definite action.
The meeting Monday was opened with
devotional services, followed by an ex
planatory address by Rev. Bach, after
which the representatives present ex
pressed themselves in the patriotic sen
timent, of Patrick Henry: "Give mo
liberty or give me death." It was urged
that the opposing faction can take away
our church property, but they can not
take from us onr religious views, or
drive us front our honest convictions
and strip us of our Christian principles,
which are near and dear to every Ameri
Next in order was a stirring address by
Rev. Beal, of Johnstowu, former pastor
of the Somerset charge. He gave his ex
perience since the church trouble began
in 1SUX His experience correspond
with the trials of St. Paul, recorded -in
1 Cor. U:'21-I7. Yet he says that he and
his people have a nicer church to-day
than before they were driven into the
streets of Johnstown homeless.
It may be urged that we have too many
churches now; but what is to become of
people who arc deprived of their church
rights and principles, and who arc barred
out of their homes?
The United Evangelical people are wil
ling to do right in any form of compro
mise, but so far they have been unable to
accomplish an adjustment of the differ
ences between the warring bodies.
Before the meeting adjourned the fol
lowing resolutions were unanimously
We, the members of the United Evan
gelical Church, assembled in the Somer
set Church, June 1, lsii, do resolve as
follows in reference to the church proper
ty of Somerset circuit :
Iiexiilved, That we surrender to the
Esher faction all tho real estate church
property on Somerset circuit, viz: The
parsonage, Somerset, Weller, Lichty,
Pleasant Hill and Pearl town churches,
without condition or reservation. That
we make then an offer to buy or pnr- j
chase the above named churches, and
that we demand from them an answer !
within ten days and the price asked for
each church building; and that if no
proposition to sell said property be made
within ten days, we pniceed to build
houses of worship immediately.
l!co(i edt That a committee of three
from each appointment meet in Somerset
on Thursday, June 1th, for consultation
with represedtativea from the Esher side
with reference to the possibility of pur
chasing the said properties. X.
