New Officers Installed.
Tho county officers-elect wore sworn
in, their bonds approved, and they
took up the duties of their respective
offices Monday. The regime at the
court houso remains tho same, how
ever, except In tho County Attorney's,
Assessor's and Sheriff's offices, and the
first and third Commissioners' dis
tricts, all the other officers holding
over. The County Treasurer's and
County Superintendent's terms do not
expire until Juno 30 1013, when tho
present incumbents will retire and the

The new officers who entered upon

Claude T. Smith, County Attorney:
Johnnie M. Jonas, Sheriff; F. II.
Drum, Assessor; R. Hagan, Commis
sioner first dlurlct, nnd Thos. MoLain,
Commissioner third district, All these
gentlemen are capable and efficient,
and they enter upon their duties as
servants of the public enjoying the
r.onfidenco of tho people In general,
who believe that they will make good.
Geo. H. Wright, County Clerk; Geo.

missioner second district; 0car Gard
ner. Surveyor ; ami II. M. Bullck. Reg
ister of Deeds, succ?ed themselves
These men wore nil re-elected hy good
majorities, which goes to show that
the people were satisfied with their
services nnd thought they deserved
another term. We feel sure tha' no
mistake was made when three men
were re-elected, nnd that the affairs of
the county will be carefully managed
and discharged by them
Change in "Old Reliable."
A change occurred tho first of tho
year in the Beaver County Abstract
Office, formerly owned by W C Fra
zer, and which had como to tie known
s the "Old Reliable" Abstract firm,
on account of its being a continuation
of tho firm abstract bulnes estab
lished in Beaver, and thn well known
care, competence nnd nccuracy always!
exercised by Mr. Frnzer In "handling
this important busi-iees By the
change, Elmer L. Fickel becomes a
partner in the firm, buying a half in
tcest, and in future they will conduct
a general Abstraot, Real Estate, Farm
Loan and Insurance business.
Tho Beaver County Abstract office
is perhaps one of tho best known busi
ness concerns In Beaver. Being found
ed., as it was, In the early days, and
growing up and developing with the
country, it has grown to bo a landmark
in business circles of the county, and
through years of eatlf factory and effi
cient service in abstracting has made
for Itself an enviable reputation for
accuraoy, promptness and reliability.
Walter 0. Frarer has conducted' tho
business for years, and to his experi
ence, ability and legal education is
duo its success.
Mr. Fickel, tho new member of tho
firm, is also a man or much nbility
along clerical lines, and will prove a
valuable addition to the firm. He will
have charge of much of tho outside
work, and is a huvtier, energetic and
19 Degrees Below Zero.
The first real cold weather of tho
winter followed closely on tho heels of
tho New Year, when n decided drop in
the temperature, occurred Saturday
night and Sunday, and the thormnme
ter hovered uncomfortably near xuro.
A light flurry of snow, carried by n
1-ccn northwest wind, continued all
day Sunday, Mondny the ground was
covered with a blanket of from four to
six inches of snow, Tuesday night tho
temperature dropped to 10 below uro.
This seemed to be the climax, for the
weather moderated perceptibly Wed
nesday afternoon, and aside from the
snow, there was lltclo to evidence
the passing of the Storm King.
The snow will bo of great benefit to
the ground, which was badly in need
of moisture, Mid thn cold weather has
caused little or no buffering to man or
beast, for, after our experiences of last
winter, our ponple wero prepared, and
there Is an abundance of feed for stock
in all parts of the county.
Another Good Number.
Another number of tho Lyceum
course was given Saturday night when
Emerson Winters, impersonator, ap
peared lu his cluver and highly onter
talning role and furnished his audi
ence with one of tho most pleasing
numbers of the course. Mr. Winters
is indeed a clever entertainer, and an
artist in his line, and it is a real pleas
ure to hear htm. Beaver is particu
larly fortunate In securing such a se
ries of entertainments, not one of
which, so fur, has not been well worth
Some Beaver County Crop.
A grent many peoplo outside of lica
vor County, and somo right here at
home, seem to havo tho erroneous idea
that this section Is not an agricultural
country, and that farm products can't
bo produced in raying quantities, and
yet it has been tho history, every year,
that enormous crops have been raised
by a part if our farmers In all sections
of tho county This leads us to believe
that the reason more of tho farmers
do not renp such good results is either
because thej do not know how to farm
right, or because they are too indolent
and indifferent to lcep everlastingly'
at it, and that it Is not all tho fault of
the soil or tho seasons. It is n well
known fact that thosn farmers who use
some sytom and scientific methods in
preparing their ground for planting,
and In thecareand cultivation of their
crops, as well as in the harvesting, are
tho ones who reap the best results and
whose efforts are rewarded by well
filled granaries. Tho slip-shod method
will not bring results in agricultural
pursuits any moro tlmn It will In other
lines of business. Tho farmer who
does things right is pretty npt to suc
ceed, but tho fellow who wants to
throw tho seed at tho ground In the
spring nnd gather enormous crops in
the fall, leaving the weeds, Russian
thistles, etc,-, to do their worst during
the cultivating season whllo ho goee
fishing, nr comes to town and knocks
on the country, tells how it is going to
the bow-wows, is pretty apt to be dis
appointed when "the frost is on the
pumpkin and the fodder's In tle shock"
in the other fellows' fields, and lib
is a mass of tumblo weeds and stunted
growth of forage.
To provo that enormous crops can be
raised when the right methods are era
ployed, we need but to mention as an
example, the success of John F.
Hutchison, a Beaver County farmor,
of near Florls. Mr. Hutchison has re
sided in the county somo seven or
eight years, and he has always raised
abundant crops, but during the season
just parsed he excelled allTormer rcc
ords..producitigJn round numbers 3085
bushels of threshed grain. To bo ex
act, he produced:
821 bushels of Kaffir Corn ;
500 " Indian Com;
233 " MIloMaizo;
601 " Wheat;
172 " Oats j
205 " Barley;
Not such a bad showing, is it? And
he Is only one ol many who have hod
wonderful harvests the past season
Wo would like to have reports from
others ns to what they have done, and
exact figures of various crops har
vested. School Opens Again.
The members of the faculty of our
city schools yiho spint their holiday
vacation with homo folks, returned
and Monday all again took up their
work with renewed zeal and energy.
The pupils, too, havo had a good rest
nnd a season of fun, and now that their
work is before them should be diligent
nnd improve every golden moment.
The nd vantages of an excellent corpt
of instructors and facilities which
should mako study a pleasure, are
theirs and we have reason to believe
that great advancement will be made
during tho remainder of tho term.
Marthas, All Stars.
The Marthas Society gve e comedy
entitled, "Breezy Point," at the K. of
P. building Friday night of last week,
and a matinee Saturday afternoon, in
which each one who took a part pre
sented the character In such a talented
manner that wo are led to bolievo the
Marthas aro all ''stars."
Breezy Point" was full of Interest
from beginning to end, and the large
crowd who attended wore highly en
tertaincd and well ploased.
Tho Marthas netted tho neat sum of
$50.00, which will be applied to their
church building pledge.
Death From Cancer.
Mrs. C. W. Beebe, of Six Mile, pass
ed away Thursday of last week Janu
ary 2d, after a prolonged illness.
Death was due to cancer of the stom
ach. The remains were taken to Chi
cago, Illinois, for interment.
Mrs. Beebe enjoyed the respect and
good will of a largo circle of friends
and neighbors, and by her death the
community is deprived of a good and
noble woman, who had a welcomes in
every home, and whose 'life was full of
deeds of love and kindness
The husband alono is left to mourn
the loss of n loving and faithful wife,
no children ever having blessed the
