Tariff Practically Settled. The long and bitter struggle over the tariff question has been practically settled by the conference committee of house and senate. The house rates on gloves and hosiery was agreed upon, in return for fret; oil, hide% and reduc ed tariff on coal, print paper and iron or<\ The hidf and leather schedule was adjusted to suit the President, who made a determined stand for free hides. The conferees' report puts them on the free list with reductions in duties on leather, boots and shoes and harness. While this measure will not be all that the country wishes for, it will possibly stand until the country gets a whack at the insurgents. We do not believe in lowering the fence one dollar, or one cent, where American laborers or American manufactures will be com pelled to compete with the pauper European labor. We are surprised, as well as disgusted when we read the nonsense iu this week's East Empori um Independent, when the eratic editor says,"the whole tariff fabric is a farce and an imposition on the American masses." Indeed where would the American laborer and mechanic be to-day with all Europe dumping the wares from its pauper labor? How many laborers would own their own homes in America if they were com pelled to labor for the same wage paid the downtrodden English or Welsh la lorer. The only way American labor ers can compete with paupers, is to starve their families. No! the day will never come in this country, we hope, when we will make way for foreigners "who can supply us at what an article i« roally worth." We ought to aud can make a great many things in this country cheaper but we Ameri cans will not, because we have the best educated, best housed and happiest la borers, mechanics and farmers in the world and they will right any wrongs perpetrated at any time by the law makers. You and your free trade gang can goto Europe and enjoy the life of that down-trodden class that can not save sufficient money to come to protection America—made so by the grandest, most patriotic and ablest statesmen the world over knew—Pro tective Tariff Republicans and Demo crats. We have no patience with tariff for revenue advocates—they are not true Americans. Continue to cuss the American tariff, Mr. Editor, that made it possible for thousands upon thousands of young men in this country to save from their earnings (the best paid labor in the world) to obtain an education and to day fill responsible positions in every branch of business. It would be a "black Friday" when we went back to the dari; days of free trade, soup houses and perdition. NIGHTS OF UNREST. No Sleep, No Rest, No Peace for the Sufferer from Kidney Troubles.

TWO SCHOOLS FOR THE BLIND State Maintains Modem Institutions at Philadelphia and Pittsburg, Where Efficient Instruction is Given. Pennsylvania is fortunate to have two magnificent schools for the edu cation and training of the blind. One of these schools is situated at Over brook, Pa., which is a beautiful suburb six miles from the heart of Philadel phia. It is accessible by the main lino of the Pennsylvania railroad and two electric lines. This school embraces a space of 29 acres, which is (divided into beautful flower gardens and lawns and athletic field. This is the larger of the two schools and accom modates two hundred students. The school in Pittsburg, Sehenley Park, occupies about six acres iu the most attractive residential section of the city. Both schools are equipped with ex cellent gyrmsiums and swimming pools, whic'i afford, splendid advant ages for physical training aud also re creation. The athletic fields are fitted with all sorts of apparatus for out door sports. The schools are divided into three departments, literary, musi cal, and industrial. The literary department embraces a curriculum of a ten years course. Nearly all the subjects taught in the public schools are taught here. Those who are able to complete the course, are graduated and receive a diploma which is equal to that of any high school in the state. The musical department consists of insruction in vocal and instumental music. In connection withj the de partment, tuning is taught to boys, which affords remunerative employ ment to those who become efficient tuners. In the industrial department the boys are taught broom making, chair caning, carpet weaving, and hammock making. The girls are taught sewing by hand and machine, crocheting, knitting, and basket-making and do mestic science. These schools open their doors to any who are blind or who have not sufficient sight to attend the 'public schools. No tuition is necessary if the appli cant cannot afford to pay it, but they must own clothing and their fare to and from school. The schools are in session from Sep tember to June. Every pupil must re turn home during July and August. Every person that is interested in the cause of humanity should encour age the education and training of the sightless child. An education'fis more essential to the blind than to the see ing child, on account of the meagre op portunities in life. "Work" should be the watchword for those interested in the £blind, and begging should be prohibited, for it is degrading to the individual who prac tices it and detrimental to the educa tion and progress of the class. The modern idea of philanthropy is to encourage people to help them seives, which results in permanent and practical happiness. Smiley says,"To help men to help themselves, is the highest form of pa triotism and philanthropy." Books for the blind may be borrowed from the home Teaching Society and Free Circulating Library, 1217 Chest nut street, Philadelphia. The Matilda Ziegler Magazine issued monthly, can be secured by writing to Mr. W. G. Holmes, Manager, 306 West Fifth-third street, New York jcity. This magazine is a gift to the blind from Mrs. Ziegler. The readers of this article are wel come to visit these schools whenever they have an oppportunity. L. DELFINO, Field Officer. [.Mr. Delfino visited Emporium last Friday and Saturday looking up all blind persons. He is totally blind and is minus the right arm, caused by being in a dynamite explosion.

CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY JULY 29, 1909. MAIDS OF HONOR. Their Position In the Royal Household of England. Maids of honor are chosen by the queen herself from among the daugh ters of peers, who if not themselves connected villi the royal household ere personal iriends of her majesty. A letter is always sent to the parents of the young lady requesting that as a personal favor to the queen she may be permitted to attend at court. As the position is undeniable and the sal ary is £3OO a year, the request is inva riably accepted, and then the newly chosen maid receives from the lord chamberlain the command for her first "wait." The first thing brought to the maid of honor is her badge, which is a min iature picture of the queen set in bril liants and suspended to a ribbon. Just before the dinner hour the maid of iionor in waiting has to stand in the corridor outside the queen's private apartments. She carries a bouquet, which on entering the dining room she lnys at the right hand of the queen's plate. The maid of honor sits at dinner next to the gentleman on the queen's right. This rule is relaxed when royal guests are present. After dinner, tin loss otherwise commanded, the maid of honor retires to her own room, whence, however, she is frequently fetched to rend, sing, play the piano or 1 . > a hfi:;d at cards.—Cassel's Satur day Journal. cnovr, GO'.7 LINKS. One Fastidious Clrc! T!iat Would Steal Only New 2alls. The crow seems to be attracted to golf balls in a way wholly peculiar from the rest of the bird species. In parks, where the rook and the crow abound, one can notice them sitting in the trees or hopping about the putting greens in the distance watching the roll of the ball with a direct or side long glance expressive of the keenest interest and curiosity, which is soon translated into a desire to carry It off to the roost in the neighboring wood. The Kew gardens adjoin the mid- Surrey course, and in the royal pre serve there used to be a fairly large colony of crows nesting among the trees. Of this colony there was one particular crow that found his great est amusement in mingling among the golfers and in disconcerting their play by indulging Iu repeated predatory campaigns against their golf balls. Ills policy was to hover in attend ance on those players who used now white balls only. Those 011 which the paint had been chipped or which had been used In play for several rounds by an economical player were always rejected by this particular bird as be ing beneath his fastidious attention.— London Field. The Normal Attitude Toward Death. The normal attitude of men toward death seems to be one of inattention or evasion. They do not trouble about it; they do not want to trouble about it, and they resent its being called to their notice. On this point the late Frederick Myers used to tell a story which I have always thought very Il luminating. In conversation after din ner he was pressing on Ills host the unwelcome question what 110 thought would happen after death. After many evasions and much recalcitrancy the reluctant admission was extorted, "Of course, If you press me I believe that we shall all enter into eternal bliss, but I wish you wouldn't talk about such disagreeable subjects." This I believe is typical of the normal mood of most men. They don't want to be worried, and though probably, if the question were pressed, they would object to the idea of extinction, they can hardly be said to desire Immortal ity. Even at the point of death, it would seem, this attitude is often maintained.—O. Lowes Dickinson 111 Atlantic. Old Thoughts on April. Old Nikolas Breton, in those delight ful "fantastics" (IG2U) of his, grew more lyrical over April than over any other month. One reads such a passage as this with delight: "The Larke and the Lambe look up at the Sun, and the labourer Is abroad by the dawning of the day; Slieepes eyes in Lambs heads tell kind hearts strange tales, while faith and troth make the true Lovers knot; the nged haircs find a fresh life, and the youthful cheeks are as red as a cherry. It were a world to set down the worth of this moneth; but in summe, I thus conclude, I hold it the Heavens blessing, and the Earths com fort."—London Chronicle. To Live Long. Yirchow, the German scientist, said the way to live long Is to "be born with a good constitution, take care of it when you are young, always have something to do and be resigned if you find you cannot accomplish all you wish." it is easier to live long with a poor constitution than to vioi.'" the other conditions and reach old a-'- A Bad Spell.

The telephone in the office of a prom inent New York lawyer rang, and when a clerk answered it the lady on the other end refused to give her name, saying she wanted to s-ce the lawyer himself on private business. As soon as the lawyer himself picked tip the receiver, before he could make any inquiries, she began, "Oh, please tell me, must there not bo two copies of a lease?" "Why," lie answered, "It Is usual to give one to the landlord's agent and one to the lessee. Hut who are"— "Yet the fact that the wife of th<- lessee had never seen a copy of the lease wouldn't keep it from being le gally binding?" "No," slipped from the lawyer, who quickly added, "But before I disctt the matter further may I ask to . whom"— There was a pretty little laugh. He admits it was pretty even now. "Oh. I'm Mrs. Brown, and I live on Broad way. You don't know me"—it was ob vious likewise that he wouldn't—"but I've always heard your advice was so very valuable, and I wanted a lawyer, and so I just called you up. Goodby."

See how each sep arate feather is cleaned, pulled and looked over and how all the loose ones are taken out and dropped. All this is done by the bill, for a bird's neck is so flexible that it can be turned iu all di rections, but the bill cannot; reach the head, and so Mr. Canary uses bis foot. With it he combs his hair first on one side, then on the other, scratching very fast, as if to get all the tangles out. Then he uses his hair oil, for, although complexion powders are not known in the bird world, hair oil certainly is. Ladles and gentlemen alike carry it about with them. They have a little pouch or sack on the back near the tail for the purpose. When Mme. Bird wishes to use it she squeezes it out with her beak, just as you would pres.* a rubber bulb. Then she lays the oil on her back just above her wings and rubs her head against it, turning her neck in all directions until every feath er in her head is straight and shining. —Exchange.

The dog days call to the worker in home, office, and mill and the answer brings up thoughts of the many resorts beside the sea where comfort, recreation, and pleas ure alike await the coming of the holiday-maker. Along the shores of New Jersey from Cape May to Sandy Hook lie forty beaches, each offering delights for outings long or short and each easily accessible by the splendid train service of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Atlantic City, with its myriad attractions for young and old, needs 110 introduction, for its charms are known from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Cape May, for a century the summering place of satis fied thousands of seekers after cool breezes, fine bathing, and the fine amusement of the seaside, is more attractive than ever in its new lite. Ocean City, Wildwood, Sea Isle City, with their smaller neighbors, Anglesea, Holly Beach, Wildwood Crest, Avalon, and Stone Harbor, afford summer pleasure to thousands. To the north lie Beach Haven, Seaside Park, Island Heights and the other resorts about Barnegat Bay, where the lover of fishing and sailing finds the choicest sport. Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Spring Lake, Long Branch, Sea Girt, Point Pleasant, Allenhurst, Elberou, and Belmar 011 the Upper Coast where the country meets the sea right 011 the beach, appeal with mighty force to the vacationist. Fifteen-day excursions to Atlantic City, Cape May, Wildwood, Ocean City, and Sea Isle City, at specially low rates leave 011 August 6 and 24, and September 3.
