At the sight of him the mob gave
voice as might a pack of hounds at

more excitement when Hawthorne,

A Woman Goverr.cr.
Queens have ruled uuiuy nations, but
Pennsylvania is the only one of the
United States that ever had a woman
for governor. A passage unearthed
from Armor's "Governors of Pennsyl
vania." page 12fi, says:
"On tlie 30tU of July. 1718. William
Penn died, at the age of seventy-four.
By his will his wife. Hannah, was
made his sole executrix aud assumed
the management of colonial affairs, ex
ecuting this difficult task with rare
tact uud business capacity. 'Site be

ernor. ruling us by lier deputies or
lieutenant governors during all the
term of her childreu's minority.' "
The Old, Old Fashion.
We live it, an age of sraft and greed.
Greed of power and greed of gain.
Money begins mid ends our creed.
Mammon is king, and his lords remain.
Wisdom no longer may hope toriead.
Culture is taking a holiday.
But women flatter and men proceed
Tc lose their heads in the good old way.
