A Gentle Hint
As court convenes on the 23rd
insi., it win auora a goou oppor
tunity for those of our patrons who
are in arrears on our books to bring
or send all or a goodly j?art -of the
same to us. We have been very
lenient with delinquent subscriber
on account 01 the Uarutimes for the
last two years. Besides we wanted
to prove to our readers that we
would give them a first class family
newspaper. This has been clearly
demonstrated. The good book
says: "The laborer is worthy of
his hire'' aud as quite a number have
failed to pay us for our hire for
several years we wish to remind
them of their obligations. Come,
ease your consciences aud get a
good record in our next Roll of
Partu s attending court next week,
will find an ciegant assortment of
Merchandise at Witteu m y e r's.
P rices the lowest.
Take No-nee! Take Notice!!
All thoso coming to court noxt week
will do well to examine their Jugs
and bring thorn along and get them
tilled with Mark's Superior Brand of
Whiskey which is better for you
than medicine. His two year-old
whiskey $2.1H per gtdlon. A fino lot
of empty whiskoy burrels, $1.25
each. J. L. Mahks,

Alfred Chubb, a prosporour mer
chant, of Fowl's Valley, Dauphin
county, made a pleasant call at this
office on Tuosday morniug. Mr.
Chubb formerly lived in Sayder
couuty and taught school at Globe
Mills and while there, he boarded
with Mrs. Michael Schoch, whom ho
visited whilo at our couuty float. He
has visited in Solinsgrove, Froeburg,
Globe Mills and other places in this
county, hunting up his many friends.
He was a soldior iu tho 20Sth Regi
ment and found many of his surving
Comrades to greet him on his visit-
The viewers appointed at last
term to view and report upon a pro
posed change of the public road at
the Red Hill east of this place, have
finished their report, recommending
tho change so as to avoid tho doub
le railroad crossing. This is as it
should be, and the good work should
coutinuo until all the crossings that
can possible bo avoided are done
away with. We aro told there is a
petition out of the same kind to
change the road West of Adams
burg, and we hope the citizens of
Spring township will move at once
in the matter, before we have a re
petition of tho Kreamer accident.
Why do Small Town Remain Small ?
It is a common occurrence in tho
daily talk when anything iu tho na-
uroof improvements is suggested
for people to say "our town is too
small, we don't have tho monov."
People who thus express themselves
cither do uot read or havo no idea at
all of what they are reading. We
see daily money lenders appearing
in tho daily papers with their adver
tisements, seeking investments for
capital that is laying idle, only too
anxious to take hold of anything
that will bring thoir patrons from 3
to I per cent- interest for their idle
money. When yon mention this
fact about the only answer that is
given is. "We have nothing to invest
it in, wo do not havo any money to
make a start." This goes to confirm
the assertion that people at e not
acquainted with business affairs of
tho world. If Philadelphia, New
York and all other cities of tho
world would have depended on
ready money in hand to start man
ufacturing and giving employment
to their people they would bo un
known to the world generally ami it
is indeed an impossibility to con
jecture what would have long ago be
come of all the peoplo on tho face of
tho earth. The question then is
now 'iu tooy become great 7 it is
fair to presume that it was a thous
and times harder for our older cities
to spring into prominence than it is
to-day because there was no circu
lating medium (money) in abund
ance as it is to-day, nor was it need
ed in such large amounts as it is
now, but there was enough to meet
the demands of the day. Now is it
reasonable to supposo that when the
first manufactory was started that
this proBQOtera of the enterprise had
ty fJS mir.,; f ' & own T - t, is
not at all likely. What was to be
donef Just whttt they aro all doiug
now. Borrow tho necossary capi
tal ; run the business economically ;
pay the interest promptly Jand tho
borrowed money in a reasonable
time. If the Pennsylvania Railroad,
one of the greatest of all systems,
would have waited for peoplo to
subscribe for Btock alone, wo would
i.-n-er have heard of the existence of
it. How aro all theso great enter
prises brought about T A few men
of energy and pluck undertake tho
work by banding together and form
ing themselves into a corporation,
they issue bonds under their char
ter, throw them on the market and
sell them to thoso pooplu who start
ed out in a similar way and becamo
rich, and with that capital tho busi
ness of the world is done. In a few
years with a well managed business
the promoters become tho lenders
to other borrowers and through that
system the peoplo aro constantly
suppliod with labor and moans of
earning a living as tho population of
tho world increasos. The next argu
ment is, "there is a groat deal of
risk in it." So thore is iu everything
a man undertakes iu this world. A
farmor may start out with a Hue
stock and lose most or all of it by
disease among nis cattlo, a mer
chant may have hisstock damaged
in some way entailing great loss, but
where loss may occur in a few cason,
experience teaches us that the ma
jority of prudent men will succeed.
It is therefore only a mutter of en
ergy or determination to cuunge a
dead old town to a livo business
placo. Let half a dozen citizens
make up thoir minds that something
must be done and go to work iu dead
earnest and see tho effect it will
have in a few years. Lot them se
lect some brand of manufacturing
that is almost certain to pay aud in
a year or two add something else,
and it will be but a very short time
till others will flock to the same
place to locate. Who is interested
or can be benefitted by such a move T
Everybody from the morchant to
the head of the family. It is not on
ly proper that this should be done,
but a solemn duty we all owe to our
families. When will Middleburgh
awake to its duty T It is the first
town in the county that should en
courage the peoplo of our county
because it is t lie capital and in all
probability will remain so for many
years if not for all time. It is use
less to sit in stores and hotels nnd
talk. Work must bo dono or tho
wholo talk is idle and our people
idle too. Who will coiuo first and
suggest some plan ! Vim:x.

Wellie I. Zcchinan, t In-winner of
tho Post's second prize of a scholar
ship at BlooiiiHlnirg was born in
Adams township, Snyder county.
Nov. I'.'th, ls;s. Ho is the son of
John F. Zcchinan of Troxel rillc, be-
ug tho first of three children. Wel

Snyder county having been elected

with James Aurand.

Free Scholarship at Bloomsburg
Stato Normal School is as fully ap
preciated as if it had fallen upon
him in maturer years. His parents
aro not possessed of resources suf
ficiently abundant to provide an ed
ucation for their children as they
would liko to do. Wellie's oppor
tunities iu tho lino of education have
been few indeed. His education for
tho most part was attained through
privuto study. Ho had been utllietod
with paralysis which made it im
possible for him to walk for a iium
bor of years. This prevented hiui
from going to school and his at
tendance at public school has been
consequently limited to but a few
Ho is a cripplo and is compelled to
walk on crutches. This was a big
drawing card for him in his aspir
ation to securo ono oT the Post's
magnifiuient Bloomsburg scholar
ship prizos. Ho had tho sympathies
of his warm-hoarted frionds among
tho readers of tho Post. There
could bo no mistako about his being
a deserving aspirant. His support
came chiefly from tho vicinity of his
homo and tho western portion of tho
county with scattering votes from
other sections. Tho plum falls into
doserving hands. Tho wisdom of
tho choice of tho readers of the Post
stands unchallenged. Tho victor
deserves all ho has received and even
more. Wo feel safe in assuring Iuh
friends that Wellio fu'ly realizes tho
unbounded pleasures of an education
aud he has always udeavored to seize
every available opportunity to ad
vance his educational interests.
