Generally a man can invest some thing that will work if it isn't any use. A man always thinks he is enjoying himself because he's away from home. You can ask a gir's father for her hand, but you have to get her heart from her. There's a fair chance to get rich in making up your mind not to waste any time trying merely to earn it.—Ex. Property Improved. The building occupied by Mr. Arthur Dryberg, as a restaurant on, Broad street has had several changes made in it during the past week. Hon. J. .C. Johnson owns the building and Con tractor Wright had charge of the work. * * The property owned and occupied by W. Swanson and family on Fifth street, opposite the Court House, has been repaired and greatly improved in in many ways. Mr. Wright did the work. The house is being treated to a new coat of paint. Back From Michigan. Geo. P. Jones, of this place, who has been superintending the construction of the Pluto Powder Co., plant at Ish peming, Mich., for several months, came homo last week to visit his family for a few days. He will soon be through at that place and will then re turn to Emporium. Glad of it. Girl Wanted. A good girl wanted at City Hotel. Apply at once. I A History of the Mountaineers. A Jolly Mountaineer Club was or ] ganized on December 25,1886, at whicb | time ths following officers were elected: ! President, G. F. Balcom; Vice Presi dent, Thomas Gallagher; Secretary, J. M. Davison; Asst. Socretary, W. S. Walker; Treasurer, Chas. Seger. This was Emporium's social club and many of the events are still bright in the memories of many members. The Mountaineer Club continued until Nov. of 1837, when the Mountaineer Hose Company was started with about 20 charter members, with the follov \ng officers at the helm. President, H. D. Burlingame; Vice President, C. >. Lanstrum; Secretary, J. Clark Motzger; j Treasurer, W. S. Walker; Foreman, Dr. E. O. Bardwell; Ist Asst. Foreman, W. S. Walker; 2nd Asst. Foreman, Chas. Seger. James M. Davison was elected President to finish the ur xpir ed term of Mr. burlingame anc filled the office lor three terms. Mr. Davi son is now the honored president of the organization and has stood by the company ever since it was started and a more capable and energetic president could not be found. Out of the small company of 25 members the Mountain eer Hose Company has steadily ad vanced until it now has a membership of about 60. It is a strong social com pany and everything they undertake is a success. The company is very prompt to respond to the call of fire and is never known to shirk a duty. At a regular meeting held in their rooms April 6th, 1909, the following officers were elected to serve for the ensuing year: President, Jas. M. Davison; Vice President, R. M. Mc- Quay; Secretary, Guy A. Klees; Treas urer, Leon R. Felt; Foremen, Joseph E. Burnside and Asst. Foreman, Roy Burlew. With these people at the head of this strong organization every thing is sure to prosper. This organization, while they, like all other of the fire companies, receive SSO per year from the Borough and realized quite a sum from entertain ments, are economical in their ex penses and invest their funds for the betterment of the company, thus add ing to the value and efficiency of the department. The boys have husband ed their means for some time, intend ing to purchase a chemical cart. They recently closed the bargain for a first class chemical cart, through Haupt & Gerg, this enterprising firm donating their commission. The cart cost §l5O ! and is expected here on Friday or Saturday. This new apparatus will be a great saving to property no doubt. This is very commendable in the Mountaineers and we hope our other efficient companies may utilize their appropriations for similar apparatus, all of which will relieve the tax-payers and be appreciated. Bush—Frank. Mrs. James A. Ray nor, of Chicago, 111., announces the marriage of her grand-daughter, Anna Raynor Bush to Mr. Fritz John Frank, the marriage having taken place March 11th.

Morton, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Morton, of Sizer ville, and Mr. Harold Waddington, son of Mr. Thomas Waddington, of this place, were quietly married at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church by the Rev. J. M. Robertson, rector of the church, last Monday at high noon. Miss Ethel Waddington and Ray L. Waddington, sister and brother of the groom acted as bride's-maid and best man. The ceremony was witnessed by only the immediate members of both families. After the wedding, the party repaired to the home of the bride, where a sumptuous repast was served. The bride is very popular with all her acquaintances and is a highly ac complished young lady, having com pleted her education at St. Bonaven lure College at Allegany, N. Y. Mrs. Waddington is also a very able musi cian. Mr. Waddington is well and favorably known by our town's peo ple and is a very industrious and sav ing young man. He is at present en rolled with the I. C. S., in a mechani cal drawing course and is studying hard to make a success of his work. The Eastern Dynamite Company, up on his resignation, presented him with a fine recommendation for his very de pendable work and good reputation. The happy couple will make their home with the bride's parents at Brookside Farm, Sizer Run, where Mr. Waddington will assist Mr. Morton in working tho large farm at that place. May their future life be as pleasant and sunny as was the day when they made tho solemn vows of marriage, is the wish of the PRESS and their many friends. Third Annual Reception.

Refresh ments were served by tho ladies on the stage. The committee having charge of the arrangements—Messrs. Thos. E. Law, J. B.

The altar in Emmanuel Church was beautifully adorned with carnations and hyacinths in honor of the Resurrection Festival. But no flowers, however beautiful, can quite take the place of Easter lilies on Easter-Day. All the services were well attended. The number of those who received the holy communion was the greates'. in the history of the parish it the Easte.* cele brations. A large proportion of these were members of tne last confirmation class. While the choir was not so large as it has been at some former Easter services, the singing of Tours' service was very effective. The solos by Messrs. Sterner and Leutze were very well rendered. In his sermon the Rector said that the joy of Easter is the joy not of those wbo have escaped orjavoided the pains and hardships, the sorrow and darkness of life, but of those who have experienced all these, aud out of these and through these have come to a higher faith and to a clearer vision and hope. The offering to apply on the balance of the Parish House Repair Fund Debt, amounted to a little more than one hundred dollars.

The pastor preached from the text, Job 19:25, "A Risen and Living Christ," bringing to his audience the truth that Christ is not in the grave, but is risen and that there radiates from this liv ing Christ a power which makes itself felt in every deparment of human activity.

School Code Bill Passed House. The much talked school code bill passed the House of Representatives Tuesday evening by a vote of 107 to 86. The bill is now in tho Senate and may pass to-day, despite tho filibuster ing of the Democratic Senators. This is the measure Hon.

We have not read the biil since the great bunch of amend ments were added. At a late hour last night the House accepted the Senate amendments. The bill is now in the hands cf the Gover nor. Meisel's Opening. Everbody's Ice Cream Parlors had its third annual opening yesterday. The entire store presented a very neat appearance with clusters of carnations at different parts of the rooms. Tht3e flowers Mr. and Mrs. Meisel very generously gave with every purchase made during the day The windows contained a very tempting display. Through close attention to business Mr. Meieel, with the valuable assist ance of his wife, has built up a fine trade and enjoy the confidence of our town's people. The parlo-s were visit ed by a great many people during the day. Much Needed Improvement. Judge Geo. J. Laßar realized that the Borough could not repair all the bad places in the streets and became tired of looking at the mud holes in front of his residence kindly volunteered to furnish the team work if the Borough would repair the unsightly breaks, which they promptly accepted and are now doing the work. West Fifth street has long been neglected by the Borough authorities and they have just reason to complain. This part of our town has grown wonderfully within the past five years and now contains some of the most comfortable homes in town. Nothing speaks louder for a town than well keep streets. Many towns in this state are bonding their municipalities exclusively for the im provements of the streets. What will Emporium do? Will Attend Wedding. Dr. Walter H.

A very lenghty article, clipped from the Duncftnnon Record, was mailed to ' the PRESS. V/e would liko to publish I the entire writing but being crowded fe.r space in this issue we must of ne i c»ssity condense the article : "Never before in the history of Duu ' cannon has such intense enthusiasm, ; unity of spirit and oneness of brother hood prevailed as on last Tuesday eve ning at (be Presbj'terian church when J a reception and social was tendered the the Men's Meeting. Dr. Johnson, the pastor, was the power and spirit of this great movement, as he announced the order of exercise; three hundred and sixteen men arose, responding in a mighty chorus to, "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name." Dr. Johnson then announced the purpose he had in view for the betterment of our young men, either by founding an organization, as a Y. M. C. A. or brotherhood or upon educational lines, in a night school or reading rooms. He suggested that he would like to have the opinion of the men in regard to their continuance. When asked how many men were will ing to have the meetings continued, three hundred and sixteen men arose as with one impulse to sanction the movement. Dr. Johnston is a leader among men and by these meetings he has enlarged the attendance at church services through which he reaches from seven hundred to eight hundred each Sabbath." Rev. Johnston will be remembered by all our people in Em porium who will be pleased to hear that he is meeting with such great suc ces in his new charge. A Correction. In our article last week, the name of William Mix was unintentionally omit ted from the list of casket bearers at the funeral of Mrs. Nancy Barr, Mr. Mix being a nephew of the deceased lady. Such things will occur in all print shops and are sometimes very annoying. send their names to Mrs. Mullin at once.
