H. S. LLOYD. ' What is the Hatter? Waste! One item of waste is time. Elihu Barrett, the learned blacksmith, was able to converse in several languages and could read and write in many. This he acquired while at work at the forge, and that when his advantages through books and living teachers were much less than now. There is not a boy or girl in our land of fair abilities and health who may not become proficient in some calling, choosing that to which their talents or inclination prompts. Another source of waste is careless ness, thoughtlessness. The want of a nail in a horse shoe causes the loss of a horse; the want of a bolt in a carriage causes the loss of the carriage; the lack of the use of a plow, cultivator or hoe causes the loss of a crop and allows the weeds to grow and to seed, which increases the time and labor of caring for the succeeding crop, and lessens the value of it, for the strength re quired to produce the weeds takes so much of what should have gone into the crop. The cook sits down to read a silly story, or steps out to discuss some gossip with an associate and the steak or other food is injured or spoiled and with it the tempers of the house hold. Were it not for woste of time, means and talent, what a nation this might become in knowledge, wealth and power, and how happy. Supporting the Administration. From the Pittsburg Dispatch. The complete figures of the vote for Governor and Congressman, respec tively, in the Twenty-seventh District of this State, will give the people an object lesson in supporting the Ad ministration and upholding national issues that are calculated to take away the public breath This, it is to be remembered, is, according to all re presentations of the Republican au thorities, the first duty of man, and the way that duty was performed up in the Venango district was a stunner. The full returns show that there were about 1400 people who nobly rallied to the defense of Republican principles and the support of the national administration by voting for W. A. Stone for Governor. But having done so they had to have relief and recreation, which they found by voting to send Sibley, the rankest free silver man the State has produced, to Con gress. The novelty of upholding the Administration in that way is striking, but may lead to incongruities. For instance, if two years hence a large element should be found to uphold Republican principles, in voting for county officers, and then rest them selves by voting the Democratic elec toral ticket, there might be sarcastic comments evoked, to say nothing of the jeers of the unregenerate. Party Wreckers. The Philadelphia Inquirer, a reliable Republican paper, wraps the "party wreckers" over the knuckles in the following manner: "While they have elected neither a Democratic Governor nor a Demo cratic Legislature, they have succeeded in sending several new Democratic members of Congress to Washington to aid other Democrats in opposing the policies of President McKinley. While they did not assail Republican candidates for Congress, except in one instance, we believe, they stirred up strife in bitter factional speeches, and in close districts this was fatal. They went into C. W. Stone's district and Mr. Stone was defeated. They went into the Luzerne district, and Morgan B. Williams was beaten. They went into the Crawford district and Clear field district and the Schuylkill and Northampton and Northumberland districts, and the Republican candi dates were all defeated. The present Pennsylvania delegation in Congress stands: Republicans, 27; Democrats, 3. The next delegation will stand: Re publicans, 20; Democrats, 10. We trust that the Party Wreckers are en tirely satisfied with their work. How grandly they stood by McKinley !" "Liberty and Union, One and Inseparable."— WEßSTEß.

While second section of train No. 60 was pulling into a siding, the train broke, the rear end stopping. This necessi sitated the quick stoppage of other trains coming down the steep grade and train No. 60 ran into the rear of No. 58. Traffic was suspended until a late hour. The loss was heavy. riHk riaids' Convention. The Inter-State Milk Maids Associa tion will hold a convention at the opera house, on Thursday evening, Dec. Ist, 1898. The convention will be largely attended by all the pretty maids from the surrounding country. Be sure you go and enjoy an evening's fun, and hear how much the maids don't know about cows, butter making, etc. Programs and tickets will be issued in a few days. The prices of admission will be 25 and 36 ets. Proceeds for benefit of Emmanuel Church. Rescue Hook and Ladder Ball. The twelfth annual ball and supper of Rescue Hook & Ladder Company, of Emporium, Pa., will take place at the opera house, Friday evening, Dec. 30th, 1898. The several committees are actively at work preparing for a big time this year. They have engaged Jamison's Orchestra, of Bradford, Pa., comprising eight pieces, and propose making their '9B ball the most popular yet given • The Hooks never do any ihing on a small scale. Remember the date. 39-6t *** What Troubles You, Sam? "What particular fault can neighbor Rogers, of the Kane Republican, find with Dr. Smith, of Cameron county, the Democrat who was elected to the Assembly in that county last week," asks the Smethport Democrat. As Dr. Smith's name has never before appear ed in this paper, and as no occasion has called for any reference to him or his candidacy, it is not easy to deter mine what editor Lindsley is driving at. Dr. Smith may be all right as a citizen, but as a legislator he was very much of a nonentity in the last House. He did not command anything like the position that Mr. Mullin did in the proceeding House. This is the reply we make to Mr. Linds'ey's mythical query.—Kane Republican. Miss Laura Evans, of Emporium, who has had five years experience in tlio large dressmaking establishments of Philadelphia is prepared to do dress making at home or by the day. 2t That's Hodest. The Philadelphia Press, in a recent issue, says:"The Lewisburg Satur day News, whose esteemed editor was defeated for the Legislature at the late election, seems to be impressed by the idea that the result was brought about by bribery. It declares that some of the attendants at a prayer meeting in West Buffalo Township were called out by a Democratic constable, who treated them to whiskey, "one fellow being offered seventy-five cents for his vote." It further says that in Hartley Township "another Democratic office holder exhibited a marked ability as a convincing behind-the-door orator and passer of red-eye and coin," and"to record every incident of this kind that occurred in the recent campaign would require more than ten columns." Bribery or attempt to bribe is a pretty serious crime under the statutes of Pennsylvania. Our contemporary would 1)0 doing the whole state an im portant service by using its informa tion to prosecute the guilty." Had the editors of the Philadelphia Press and Lewisburg News been in Cameron county on the Bth of November they could have seen the most brazen ex hibitions of bribery—no beliind-the door business about it, but open bargain and sale to the highest bidder The prices paid for votes for the Demo cratic candidates were from $0 to §ls; §5 to $lO to refrain from voting and "name-your-priee" should you be a Republican worker or committeeman, to stand around and keep quiet and call "assistance" when voting. No wonder a leading Emporium Demo cratic worker exclaimed the other day, "don't talk to me about the election, we have nothing to be proud of; it was a disgrace and I am ashamed of it — ashamed of our people—and, seriously, what is Cameron county coming to?" Respectfully referred to the Reform ers (?). Genuine hair cloth for dresses at Mrs. Bardwell's. 2t Farewell Services. Rev. W. R. McNeil's pastorate of the First Baptist church of Emporium, ceased with last Sunday's services. Rev. McNeil came to Emporium eight years ago and has labored zealously for the upbuilding of his church. Dur ing the past year his health has failed and his physician has ordered him to cease active labor for the present. It is with general regret that this elo quent divine leaves Emporium. He has by his genial manners won the re spect and esteem of all classes and creeds. Ever ready to lend a hand in any laudable enterprise, always gladly raising his voice in behalf of any good cause. W. R. McNeil was closely iden tified with our town and county. A man of liberal and consistent views up on all subjects, a man of strong will power, he dares to do what he con siders right at all times and under all circumstances and never buries his opinions under a half-bushel measure. Rev. McNeil is a broad-guaged gentle man, a consistent christian —a true American citizen. , The services at the Baptist church last Sunday were largely attended by our people, a mark of respect to the re tiring Pastor. At the evening services Rev. Rob't McCaslin, Pastor of the Presbyterian church, occupied the pulpit and delivered a very able ad dress and feelingly referred to the high esteem in which Rev. McNeil is held by our citizens. Rev. McNeil's re marks were notofthe ''farewell" order, yet he spoke in his usual happy strain and related his experience of forty years in the ministry. Prof. H. F. Stauffer, principal of Em porium schools, spoke a few words in behalf of the friends and admirers of the Rev. gentleman present. His re marks conveyed the unanimous senti ments of our people. The Emporium lodge, No. 382, A. Y. M., of which Rev. McNeil has been the faithful Chaplain for sometime, attend ed the services in a body, a mark of re spect seldom accorded one of their number. The PRESS extends to our old friend, and his estimable family, its best and hoartfelt wishes for a long life of much happiness. It has been our good fort une to coun tamong our intimate friends this good man and words cannot ex press how deeply we feel indebted to him for the many kind acts of friendship so cheerfully rendered in our behalf. Rev. McNeil and family will reside at Bridgeton, N. J. Another Pioneer (jone. HERRICK. At Keene Hospital, Philadelphia, Nov. 18th, 1898, of cancer of the stomach, \v IL i,iAM P. HKRHICK, aged C 8 years, six months and fourteen days. Mr. Herrick was one of the pioneers of Cameron icounty, having been identified with its interests since 1803. One by one the old pioneers are drop ping by the wayside, wearied with the long march of life, while time covers up their foot-prints, as generations come and go. The deceased will be missed in the circle of friends that surrounded him —sadly missed, yet the Ruler of the universe doeth all things well. The funeral was held from his late residence at Sterling Run, on Sun day afternoon, at two o'clock and was very largely attended by friends from adjoining towns. Rev. W R. McNeil, of Emporium, preached the funeral sermon, a very able effort and highly appropriate to the occasion. They're drifting like the falling leaves, Before the Autumn blast; The pioneers of former days, Whose lot with us was cast. Yes, one by one, they pa?«s away. When nature's work is o'er: And 'mid the daily walks of life, Will meet with us no more. Resolutions. At a meeting of the Presbyterian Sabbath School, held Oct. 23, it was moved and adopted that this school recognize in appropriate resolution, the excellent service rendered by Miss Bessie Ault and Mr. Roy McDonald, and the deep itgret of said school at the loss sustained by their removal from town. The committee having charge of the preparation of said resolution, places on public record the sense of the school and expresses its high appreciation of the noble charac ter and faithful service of these mem bers, praying God that He will guide and protect them in their homes; that they may live long to render such service as shall be acceptable in His sight and a continued honor to the society into which destiny shall cast their lot.

MRS. W. P. HERRICK AND FAMILY. Sterling Run, Pa., Nov. 22, 1898. Visits the Temple. A number of Emporium Shriners visited the Olean Temple last Tuesday evening, and, no doubt, traveled over the hot sands of the desert. Among the party we noticed Geo. J. Laßar, W. F. Lloyd, I). W.

The many friends of Miss Ella Her rick, of Sterling Run, will be pained to learn that she is dangerously ill at Philadelphia, at the home of friends. She accompanied her father to the hospital and was stricken with paralysis before he was operated upon. Miss Herrick was unable to be present with her father at the time of his death, although Dr. Wright, of Erie, his son in-law was. Mr. Herrick was conscious until ten minutes before his death. A Personal Card. Having narrowily escaped, through the goodness of God and through Mr. Thos. Gallagher's incomparable pres ence of mind, quickness and courage, from a terrible accident, as the result of an attempt to board a moving train; I wish to acknowledge publicly my sense of the great criminal carelessness of which I was guilty, and to express the hope that my experience will prove a warning to all persons, especially to young men and boys, against similar fool-hardy attempts. J. M. ROBERTSON. Emporium, Pa., Nov. 22, 1898. The Happy Little Folks. Last Saturday afternoon, Miss EDNA, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Cruise, celebrated her eighth birth-day by in viting twenty-one of her little lady and gentlemen friends, who hugely enjoyed themselves, as little folks only can, until five o'clock, when supper was served. Miss Edna, attired in pink ?aslimere and pink cap, escorted by Master Geo. Barker, who also wore a pink cap, led the march to the dining room, followed by Warner and Marion Judd, Joe and Jean McNarney, Harold Seger and Lena Coyle, Frank Housler and Edna Clark, Lee Schwartz and Olive Miller, Lloyd Swartz and Mable Miller, Helen Auchu and Mildred McQuay, Clyde Fisher and Ruth Pearsall, Lena Richie and Irene Richie. The little tots greatly enjoyed the afternoon. Miss Edna was the recipient of many beau tiful presents from her friends. Narrow Escape. Last Thursday, the Rev. Robertson, Rector of Emmanuel Church, met with an accident while attempting to board Erie mail. He waited to procure a newspaper from the newsdealer and after procuring the same walked back to the ladies car to get aboard. The train was moving at quite a brisk rate when lie made the effort Being en cumbered with a satchel and an um brella he had only one hand to assist himself with. Ho was thrown on his head and shoulders close to the car wheels and had it not been for the presence of mind of Station Agent Gallagher, who pulled him from the passing wheels, the Reverend gentle man would have been terribly mangled. The train was stopped and the thor oughly frightened Rector got aboard and resumed his journey to Warren. A Brilliant Wedding. The society event of the season was the marriage of Miss Georgia Elizabeth Barclay, the charming and accom plished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George B. Barclay, to Mr. William L. Beddow, at the home of the bride's parents, at Wysidc, last evening. Promptly at 8 o'clock the bride and groom, preceded by the maid of honor, Miss Lillian Barclay, sister of the bride, appeared in the parlor and in the presence of a very large number of invited guests Rev. M. C. Piper per formed the beautiful ring ceremony of the Methodist Episcopal Church, unit ing them in the holy bonds of matri mony, and every detail passed off in a perfect and delightful manner. The bride was attired in white silk and chiffon and presented a charming appearance, while the maid of honor looked beautiful in her dress of white mull and nun's veiling. It was a most brilliant affair and the home was handsomely decorated for the occasion. After a sumptuous wedding supper the bride and groom departed for the east on an extended wedding tour. They will return and spend the holi days with t he bride's parents and later make Seattle, Wash., their permanent abode. The bride was one of the leading society young women of this county and a daughter of George B.Barclay, of the well-known lumber firm of Bar clay Bros. The groom is an exemplary young man and enjoys an extensive law prac tice in Seattle, Wash. The presents were varied, beautiful and valuable and beggar description, the list being too long to use in this issue.—Driftwood (lazette. The best line of underwear at N. SEGER'S.
