THF FOREST REPUBLICAN.
J. I. WCNK, CDITOM 4 0mITO. WRDNKSDAY, FEBRUARY 3. 1009 Col. Wattkhsoh trie1 lo elect Bryan and in bold Tillman's cat, but bag nut yet undertaken the job of coinfortiDg Kern. Tkn years ago the wireless telegraph seemed a visionary fancy, but Its preseot practical uses Know bow laplilly a good thing in tbia agn l puhnd along. John Burroughs declares that "after a man h attained t competency, money la superllumiH, Juat like so much lat." But there la no similarity in the desire to apply antifat remedies. It la stated that the I500 automobile la better than the $3000 machine a few years ago. American inventors, manufacturers and workmen propone to lead the world in this industry sod are making good. Water-tight compartments kept the steaiiiahip Republic from sinking as soon as she was rammed, and the wirelesa telegraph lirouicht relief without delay The conquest ofthencesn gneaon steadily If the government memorial to Lin coin is to he a biuhway between Wash ingtnn and Oettyaburg, the road should be marked at each end by an architect' urai monument worthy of the man to be honored. TilK politicians opposed to (iov Hughes are warned that if they are not good be will run for a third term. This announcement baa cauaed a shiver to course up and down the backb"ne of the machine and it is sitting up and taking notice. Thk old Liberty Bi ll, which has hung in the old state bouae at Philadelphia since it rang the joyous proclamation of liberty to the Union more than a hundred and thirty-two years ago, and which has been viewed by millions of people, will make a pilgrimage across the continent to the Alanka-Yukon-1'aclllc Exposition at Seattle. Aside from the awe and rev erent embuaiaain the old cracked Bell will arouse during its escort from Phila delphia to the exposition city by a guard of honor, it will furnish tbo fair one of its most attractive features, no doubt. Widows of deceaaed soldiers and sail ors of the civil war in instances where marriages occurred since June 27, 1890. may be pensioned under the provisions of a hill favorably reported to the senate Wednesday from the committee on peti tions. Under existing law widows of soldiers and sailors of the civil war are not pensionable unless their marriages took place prior to the date mentioned. It is estimated by the pension bureau that there are about 15 .000 or 20,000 women who would be benetited by tbe passage of this law. Lat year there were between ,000 and 10,000 deaths among widows of soldiers of the civil war. The bill is a just one and should pass promptly. The lady who marries one of these battle scared veterans and makes his last days upon earth days of peace and happiness, deserves to be remembered and provided with the little comforts of life during her short stay in this vale of If ars. Tub report of the Iteinaon board re garding the use of benzoate of soda as a fond preservative will lead to new regula tions for the enforcement of many ot the sections of tbe pure food law. The board, which consisted of four of the most emi nent scientists in Ihls country, decided that benzoate of soda is as harmless as a breakfast lood and that If anybody wants to eat It he may go as far as lie likes. Tbe board completely explodes the theory of Chief Wiley, of tbe Bureau ot Chemistry, who has charge of the enforcements of the pure food law, that benzoate of soda was poisonous when used as a preservative, Tbe board in eflect states that Mr. Wiley's "poison squad," experiment of two years ago, while sensational, was worthless. As the board was appointed by the President to settle the ooutrovers over benzoate of soda its findings are final. The contny versy had been before tbe Agricultural Department ever since the enactment of tbe pure food law. The general belief is that Mr. Roosevelt will now ap' point a new man head of the Bureau of Chemistry, as the report of tbe Kemseo board discredits Wiley as a chemist. Ills many theories with reference to food pro ducts have attracted widespread attention Nearly all of these theories have been coin batted bv other chemists. A row between a Japanese student and some American undergraduates at tbe University of California tbeoth'rday, In which the Jap came out second best, has thrown certaiu nervous newspapers Into a state of terror lest the Incident should embroil the two countries in a serious war. It is pointed out that unless your Uncle Sam hastens to make an apology to HisToklon Highness, and that p. d q., tbe little yellow fellows will come down on and annihilate os at one fell swoop, Such fawning and cringing as one sees in some of the prints is euouau to give one a pain and cause a feeling of disgust for the editorial writers of some of the great (?) newspapers of our land. If a Japstu lent or any other student at one of our colleges mixes up in a iow and gets the worst of the argument let him take his medicine like a man, just as other boys have to. We're not educating Mollycoddles at our universities, and if one of this sort bap- pens to find bis way onto the campus let him keep his place or take tbe conse quences. This government is In all re spects too big to meddle itself with mere college-boy gcrappings, and the nation that ia running around witb achip on its shoulder must be made to understand that Uncle Sam, while not hunting trouble, is not tiie kind that takes to the tall limbers when he meets It. Tbe Cali fornia incident will right itself all right, and if it shouldn't we're not In favor of offering any governmental apologies; at least not until il is known just how large a head the Jap is wearing since bis tittle "go" with the American youth. His reluctance to being lionized only serves to add to the popularity of Jack Binns, the wireless operator on the wrecked steamship Republic remarks the Oil City Bl zzard. When the newspaper reporters tried to interview him in New York all he said was: "O, hell! I just did my work. Of course, I was in dungor, but think of Sea I by and Williama. Tt seemed long time bo lore we picked up lbs first answer to our ('. Q. D. and after we did there was work to do. Tbe credit belongs to Captain Healby and his crew Wbat about my plans? I will roport to tbe wireless company and likely be as signed to some other ship. That's all I know now." That's about all there was to It, from Jack's point of view. Had be been a nervous Frenchman or an exclta ble Italian he might have imbroved tbe opportunity to shoot himself, Jump over board or com m it some other outlandisbly rediculous act, but being an American citizen, witb good red blood coursing in bis veins, he simply did what an other Anglo-Saxon would have done held bis base and kept right on sawing wood. Our people bave a pro ensity for doing strange things. During tbe Spanish war tbe Spaniards complained that Ibey could not understand the American soldiers "who when you shot at them, run at you instead of running away." Of course several millions of bis admiring lellow citizens feel that they would like to shake bands with Jack, not so much for his heroism on hoard the sinking ship as for his good common sense In Dot acquiring a swollen bead. New School Code for Peniisrlvanla. A proposition to completely remodel the school laws o' Pennsylvania will be before the legislature at ibis session, and in all probability will pass. It embodies the recommendations of an expert oom mission appointed by Governor Stuart two years aito, and Involves nuny Impor tant changes, which are pronounced ex cellent ones by those who have given the matter consideration. The new law proposes to divide all the school districts of tbe stati nto three classes. Tbe first class includes I'bila delpbiaand Pittsburg, where Ihe school system is to be taken out of politics by having tbe School Board appointed by the Court, In tbe second class members of the School Boards will be elected, their names appearing in non-partisan columns of the official ballot; and the same plan will be followed in tbe third class, com prising small boroughs and townships having less than 5.000 population. The new school code provides for a State Board of Education, to be appointed by the Governor, which shall assume con trol of the construction ol school build ings, and furnish plans tree of cost if leaired, bave control in school sanitation, standardize tbe educational system, and supervise the examination of teachers and the granting of permanent certifi cates. All normal schools are to be made a part of the public school system of tte stale. County Superintendents are to be elected by School Directors as before, hut are to receive a minimum salary 01(1,500, to be paid by the state. Enlarged powers are given to local Boards of Education to establish and maintain schools for teach- ng sgriculture, manual training, domes tic scionces, kindergartens, and so on as demanded and needed. School furniture, apparatus and text bonks are to be listed by the State Board of Education at lowest possible price, and text books cannot be changed oftener than every five years. Every male resident ol the state must pay one dollar annually as a school tax, In addition to any tax he may pay on real estate or other property, and tbe forest reservations of Ihe slate, which now amounts to nearly a million acres, are to be used to build up a state school fund.

Two years ago my daughter stepped on a needle, breaking It oft in the ball of the foot, which swelled tip very painfully swelling to the knee. The doctor at Go wanda lanced tbe foot, but was unable to find the needle. The X ray was applied, and we could see the noodle. We then applied San-Cura Ointment, thick as a poultice, and after four applications the needle made its appearance, (just as Mr. Thompson said it wauld) and was taken out to the great relief of my daughter, aim an me lmiily, as she bad an Herod great deal, and every step pained her.

Deceased was the mother ol Mrs J. P. Uuling of Tlonesls, who was present at the funeral, which was held at East Brady on tbe 2oth tilt. Mrs. Elder was born near Riuieraburg, Clarion oounty, and In her younger days was a school teacher In her borne com munity. Shortly alter ber marriage, 41 years ago, she united with the M. E. church and bad remained a devoted member of that church to the day of ber death. Besides Mrs. Uullnga, the do ceased Is survived by four other daugh ters and one son. GORMAN. Sarah Carr Gorman, wife of Eugene L. Gorman, was born In Albany, N. Y., January 8, 1863, and died at the Oil City hospital, Tuesday evening, Januaay 20, 1009. Brief note of this sad death was made in tbe Rkfoblican Wednesday, On that day the Infant dsjgbter, born a few hours prior to tbe mother's death, also expired, and both were I liter ed in one grave in the cemetery at East Hick ory on Thursday, 28tb ult. Mrs. Gorman came to Tloneata witbber parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Carr, up ward of thirty years ago, and grew lo yonng w 'manhood In tbia place. She was married to Etiuene L. Gorman and their residence since then bad been at Endeavor, Pa., a period of nearly 25 years. She was a woman of rare good sense, possessing all Ihe belter trails of character peculiar to true womanhood, and through ber quiet, ladylike bearing and pleasant disposition she won and re tained a host of friends who honored nnd respected her in a blgli deicree. She early embraced tbe religion of Christ, and the cburcb and its kindred societies found in ber a most willing and elUciont worker, In ber household she excelled as a wife and mother, having the comfort, peace andwellbeing of her husband and cliil dren always uppermost In mind, and the stesdy babtts and clean character of tbe two sons sbe leaves behind fully attest the success with which tbe loving mother reared and nurtured. Tbe community in which Mrs. Gorman spent so many years of ber life will miss ber as few would be missed, and to tbe church, the Endeavor, the W. R. C, the W. C. T. U., in all of which sbe was an active and loyal mem ber, have sustained a loss that is well nigh irreparable. Besides tbe aged par ents, residing at West Hickory, the bus- band and two sons, Clyde of Warren, and Charles at home, the deceased is survived by three brothers Andrew Carrof Frank lin, and Frauk and Jay Carr of Bradford. Appropriate and Impressive funeral services, conducted by her pastor, Rev. J. F Scherer of the Presbyterian cburcb of Endeavor, were held at ber late borne, the obsequies being attended by a very large concourse of sincere friends, whose heartfelt sympathy goes nut to the be reaved ones in tbia sad hour.

A Coiiiinnii Cold. We claim that if catch inir cold could be avoided some of tbe most dangerous and fatal diseases would never be heard of. A cold olten forms a culture bed for germs of In feci Ions diseases. Consump tion, pneumonia, diptheria and scarlet fever, for of tbe n ost daneerous and fatal diseases, are ol this class. Tbe culture bed formed by the cold favores the (level- opmentof tbe germs of these diseases, inai wouia not otherwise find lodgment. There is little danger, however, of any of these diseases beiuir contracted when a good expectorant cough medicine like unamuerlaln's Cough Remedy Is used. It cleans out lhe.se culture beds that favor tbe development of tbe germs of these diseases. That la why this remedy has proved so universally successful in nre venting pneumonia. It not only cures your cold quickly, but minimizes tbe risk or contracting these dangerous dls eases. For sale by Dunn Fulton. ANOTIIIlll OK MAM Y 1 1 HKS.

A year or two passed, and one (lay Captain Russell, Hie commandant of the post which ISiidger had left, was surprised to see the old scout heave In sight. When he came In the cap tain asked: "Well, Bridge r, what brings you back here?" "Captain," said liridger, "I want to go back to scouting again." "Indeed? Why.
