"A Representative in Congress who demonstrates his value as a careful and consistent l«gisl itor In the inter est of the country at large and his use fulness to the citizens of his district and state, is a man who should be con tinued as a representative by his con stituents as long as his worth ns such remains in evidence." This was a saying of Hon. Tom Reed of Maine, while he was t-peaker of the House of Representatives. He con tended that it was unsafe and a wrong proposition to keep at home a tried, true legislator and send in his stead an untried, inexperienced man. The great State of Pennsylvania has no more able and efficient representa tive in the House than Hon. Charles Frederick Barclay of the twenty-first district. He has been through the legislative furnace and has come out pure gold. He is a ready and convinc ing speaker, a hustling committee worker i.nd is known among his col leagues as a veritable enclyclopedia of the great questions that have come be fore Congress and others that are in prospect. Newspaper men at the Nation's Cap ital—those keen observers of men and events, who analyze the great ques tions of the hour and diagnose the mo tives of the men who make our' laws, speak in high praise of Mr. Barclay and his work in Congress. One of them remarked recently, "A failure to elect Hon. Chas. F. Barclay would be in the nature of a disaster to his country and a catas trophe to his State and district. He is one of the men in the House who has 'made good.'" The voters of the twenty-first dis trict of Pennsylvania are indeed for tunate in having such a sterling man to represent them with dignity and ability in the galaxy of statesmen in the big white capital at Washington. He was elected to the sixtieth and six ty-first congresses, and we believe the good judgement of his constituents will impel them to return him to the sixty-second congress beyond the per adventure of a doubt. The public men who know Representative Barclay in timately and well will swear by him. He is their ideal of the real states man. In the Civil War Mr. Barclay served i with that noted Pennsylvania com j mand, the second "Bucktails," which won glory for itself and the Keystone State on many hard-fought and san guinary battle-fields. He began his 1 military service as a private but came out of the conflict wearing the bars of a captain, earned by brave and dis tinguished service in the face of the enemy. Fellow-veterans of the G. A. | R. declare that there was no more brave and daring soldier in the Union | army than Capt. Charley Barclay. His regiment was the 149 th Penn | sylvania Volunteer Infantry and he j WHS a member of Company K. He • was only mustered out of service when "Liberty and Union, One and Inseparable." —WEßSTEß. EMPORIUM, PA., THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1910. General I,« e surrendered at Appomat- , tox, and t he dove of peace again perch ed upon the banner of this coun ry, which he had to ably helped Jh!3h to save from dismemberment and per haps final destruction. As in war Capt. Barclay was a vali ant soldier, BO in peace be is a man of the hour and a legislator whose ac complishments in Congress are both numerous and valuable to hie country and his State. Captain Barclay is a Republican and his home is in Sinnamahoning. Pa. He was born May, 9, 1844, at Owego, N. Y., and taken to Pennsylvania by his parents when he was but a year of age. His oarly education was gained at the Painted Post High School and the Coudersport Academy. He be came a school teacher but relinquished that calling for the more patriotic and sacrificing one of soldier, entering the Union Army togo the front in the de -1 fense of his country and its flag. At the close of the war he entered Belfast Seminary, New York, and sub sequently took up the study of law at the University of Michigan. Later, with an elder brother, he formed the firm of Barclay Brothers, lumber deal ers, at Sinnamahoning and carried on an extensive trade. Hon. Charles Frederick Barclay was married to Miss Margaret A.L.Brooks, daughter of John Brooks of Sinnama honing, Pa., August 22, 1872. He was a Presidential elector in 1892, and an alternate delegate-at large in 1900, and as such voted in the Republican National Convention that year. His entire lifetime has been marked by consistent and worthy effort. He is made of the stuff from which great men are moulded and his host of friends in Washington predict that he will be awarded the well-earned honor of serving many years yet in Congress, where he has made his mark —and a big, broad mark of merit at that."-- Brickbats and Bouquets.

The Parish House, of Emmanuel Episcopal Church, at this place, was the scene of a happy assemblage last Friday eveuing, when the Sophomores of the High School entertained the Seniors and Juniors. The Parish House was tastefully and beautifully decorated for the happy occasion. The evening was pleasantly spent in contests and other amusement", af'er which refreshments were served. The members of the Sophomore Class are very popular with their fellow stu dents and are right there in Ihe line of entertaining. All present report a fine time. Sunday Afternoon Accident. Last isunday afternoon, while a party was returning to Emporium from Moore Hill, an accident, occured which might have been most serious. The party was composed of the Rev. F. B. Schrlner, pastor of the Free Me: thodist ctiurcti of this place, his wife and son, Master Oliver, Rev. Roy L. Brown, of St. Marys, and another gen tleman of Renovo. The party had driven to Moore Hill and as they were returning to town, and were passing the Card residence, the stay-bolt which hold the tongue to the axleof the carri age suddenly broke and dropped to the ground, striking the feet of the horse on the right hand side and a sudden swerving of the wheel caused the horse on the left hand side to jump. After going the length of about thirty paces the carriage was thrown on the bank, but owing to the curtains on the carri age being closed it saved the occcup ants from being thrown to the ground. The Rev. Mr. Brown was driving and it was through his careful handling of the team that a serious accident was averted. When the horses broke loose from the carriage Mr. Brown was dragged over the dash board, and re ceived many bruises, which are very painful. The runaway horses were ' caught near the residence of Mr. Amos Horning, by Mr. Horning and Mr. Willingham, of Port Allegany, who was his guest at that time. After pro curing a horse and buggy, Rev. Mr. Schriner and Rev. Brown brought the horses to town, arriving here at mid night. It certainly was a narrow es cape, for if the acdident had happened along the road a little further down hill, the entire party would have been thrown down over the embankment, ] and probably would have received l serious injuries. I™ ' ' Busy at Work. A. H. Panting was a PRESS business I caller Monday evening. "Heck," as he is familiarly called, is hustling work all along the line and informs us that he is remodeling A. A.
