Col. Wattkhsoh trie1 lo elect Bryan

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.

RECENT DEATHS.
KLDKR.
Mary Leatba Bennett, widow of the
late Robert L Elder, died at ber borne In
Claysville, Washington county, Jan. 23,
1909, aged 01 years. 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.

Poor Air and Poor Living.
When .Tim Ilrlder, the one time fa
mous scout of the plnlns, grew old he
thought ho would like to retire from
the somewhat nrduoti life of a plains
man nnd settle down to the case of
"Ihe east," which to him meant Mis
souri. ro lie used his best endeavor
to find : 'oiniielent man to fill bis
place and went back to Missouri.
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. I thought you had
settled down in the east for the rest of
your life!"
"Well, cap'n, I'll tell you bow It Is.
I went back to old Missouri, and If
you'll believe It they've got n railroad
station within ten mile o' the old place
yes, sir, a railroad station! And,
what's more, they've got n ranch now
In every four mile. I tell you what,
enp'n, the nlr ain't pure down there
no more!"
"Is that possible? But I thought
you'd like the good things to eat they
have down there. You like good things
to eat. I remember."
"flood things to eat! Why, cap'n, I
didn't have a br'iled beaver tall the

The First Cookbook.
To the Romans belong the honor of
having produced the first European
cookery book, and, though the author
ship Is uncertain. It In-generally attrib
uted to Caollus Apictis, who lived un
der Trajan, 114 A. P. Here are two
recipes from this ancient collection:
"First, for a sauce to be eaten with
boiled fowl, put the following Ingredi
ents Into a mortar: Aniseed, dried mint
and Inzer root. Cover them with Tine
gar, add dales and pour In llquamen
(a distilled liquor made from large fish
which were salted and allowed to turn
putrid In the stuil, oil and ft small
quantity of mustard seeds. Reduce all
to n proper thickness with sweet wlno
warmed, and then pour this same over
your chicken, which should previously
be boiled In aniseed water."
The second recipe shows the same
queer mixture of ingredients: "Take
n wheelbarrow of rose leaves and
pound In n mortar; add lo It brains of
two pigs nnd two thrushes boiled and
mixed with the chopped up yoke of
e?g, oil, vinegar, pepper nnd wine.
Mix and pour these together nnd stew
them steadily and slowly till the per
fume Is developed." Chambers' Jour
