Don't put It off. Thk Philadelphia Inquirer is much ex ercised over tue fact that if the Maure tauia koeps ou breaking ocean voyage records, the trans-Atlantic trip will not take lonii enough to conclude even a moderate poker game. Ik it is true, as reported from Lewis town, that the express robbers who held up the train got f5,W0 instead of f t5, as first stated, it is little wonder that tbe ex press company Is anxious to capture the thief, having 180 detectives on the track, who with guides are scouring the nioun taius of that neighborhood. The ballots to be used at the coming fall election in this state will be some thing awful in size if the sample received at the office of the County Commissioners is anything of a criterion, It being about one by two feet in dimeusion, and con tains the state candidates and constitu tional amendments alone, tho local caudl dates still to be added. It will bu I "blanket ballot," surely. Tae newspapers of towns along the Clariou river are making a general and vigorous protest against wholesale con tamination and pollution of the stream At Ridgway the stench is said to have be come unbearable since the water has fall en so low. The tanneries, paper and chemical factories are charged with its present bad condition. At the mouth of the Clarion where 11 empties into the Allegheny river below Foxburg the water is as black, almost, as ink and there is ap parently nothing living lu the stream. There is no appreciable odor from the water, however. Derrick. One of the Pittsburg papers says the sportsmen of that town aro burnishing up their guns and getting their dogs in lettle for the fall shooting season, which is only a lew weeks dlstaut. Under the laws of Pennsylvania pheasants, wild turkeys, (mail and squirrels may be shot on and alter October 15. Tbey may burnish up their guns as much as they please, but they need not look for game in Venango County. It is very scarce this year. It is to be hoped the local papers will not bold out inducements for outside pot-hunters to come here by mis representing the situation. The river Is not full of tisli, nor the woods full of game. But there is fine hunting in Can ada-and Africa.-Oil City Blizzard. The Blizzard Is correct. Too many false Iin pressions about the great abundauce of game are given out by editors who don't know a woodcock from a turkey buzzard, or a muscallonge from a blood-sucker, Who Owns tho Pole! This question is asked by tbe Punxsu tawney Spirit, which then proceeds to say: Many persons assume that tbe mere fact that an American was lirst to reach the North Pol 9 makes that frigid territory the property of the United Slates. Such is not the case, unless we choose to occupy it, and Uke the responsibility of regulat ing matters up there. The State Department, fearing that tbe Impression might become general that the polar regions belong to the United States by riiibt of discovery has been at some pains to correct possible miscoucep tions, "Of course," says the Springfield Republican, "there is now no such thing as legal possession by the mere right of discovery; but original discovery strengthens a claim it it be lollowed up by au official Magraising and an effective occupation. There must be real posses sion, iu the long run, and not a mere paper claim to jurisdiction, based on one proclamation of sovereignty. When the n'ew world was discovered these ques tions were gradually thrashed out, and the modern practice finally established. At first, Spain claimed the coast of Amer ica because Police de Leon, in 151:!, land ed on the coast of Florida; but the English claim was equally good, because the Cabots had already explored the coast from Nova Scotia to Cape Hatteras. Such conflicts were necessarily compromised, in the end, only by the development of the doctrine of effective occupation. There have been many discoveries of new lands in tho extreme polar regions in the past fifty years by thefubjects of various countries, but of effective occupation by their government there has been exceed ingly Utile, for reasons seen at a glance." At present, therefore, nobody bas do minion over tbe polar regions, because Ihero are no people thero to be governed or interests to be guarded. It is a matter ,.r i.M.MHMsinii. It heinous to the lirst cunulry that may colonize It and utilize it 5UKH0NI 14 1516 17 18 Untiring. Last meeting of the Y. M. C. A. was held at Miller'a camp, Friday evening, 10th, by Ervlne E. Deer and Charles J. Borden. Tbey have gone to Port Alle gany, where tbey will bold meetings. Mr. Leslie and John Porter were Mar- ienville visitors Friday evening, return ing borne at break of day. Attended a ball and report a fine time. Mrs. F. U. Berg was a Sheffield visitor Monday. Oscar Spelt of Dunkirk was home with his parents Monday, his sister Ellen re turning with him as far as Sheffield. Mrs. Wm. Irvin of Barnes was the guest of relatives here ovor Thursday night, where ber little son Arthur is staying and going to school. Messrs. Uibaou ami Henderson of Straight run visited our town Thursday. They were looking after business affairs. Mr. Heppner has moved Into the new camp at Parrish, on the Kllitbrop job. Glad to see more men, neighbors. Mis. Art. Johnson is preparing to at tend the Clarion tair next week. F, G. Berg drove a man to Marienville, Friday evening, that was quite badly cut in the woods here. We could not learn bia name. B. F. Branch of Warren was In town Friday. A traveling agent, we under stand, for lumbering machinery. Messrs. Swanson and Miller are again busy with Ibeir leg job here. F. G. Berg's are iutendiug to make their departure the lirst of the month for his home at Chandler's Valley, where they will lake care of his aged parents during the winter. They are preparing and will store their furniture. Mr. Ful mer of Byromlown will take bis place on the farm, which is owned by Mr. Frost of Fredonia, N. Y. Mr. Fulmer will take care of the lease, farm, store and post of fice. We are sorry to see the Berg family go but are glad to see more neighbors. Not as though he house would be vacated for good, as it is large and would look lonely. There was an auto in our town a few days ago. We did not learn where it was from, but It was a big beauty and brought in some men that were interested iu the oil busiuess here. Ray Schiller ot Warren was visiting his uncle, Fred Knupp, oyer Sunday, taking Monday diuner with A. F. Kinney and returning to bis borne in the afternoon. Charles Lindsey went to Snyderscamp, near Nanseu, to work. He expects to work on the pipe line soon. Mr. Kendall or Marienville Is our teacher this term. He has a nice school of 32. They alt seem to like their teacher and he proves satisfactory. Charles Anderson of the Keller farm, Frosttown, passod through our town this week. There will be a ball game at Auguston, Sunday afteruoou. Our boys are doing fine this year. WhlS Hill. Farmers and all others of this place who can work or would like to work, could be busy just now plowing, sowing aud threshing. The Littletield thresher is here doiug business. Mr. Littletield is a bustler and works from the shoulder, and we would not forget his partner, Mr. Mealy, wbo is a jolly good fellow with always a smile on his face. We would not forget tbe fireman, who makes a great addition to the crew; a great fellow for chicken, and full of jokes, but some feel just a little suspicious of the fireman, as be seems to have his mind fixed ou something else. Farmers have their eyes on him aud no doubt he will be watched closely and if necessary will be taken care of. While everything seemed to be quiet for some time past, there seems to be quite a commotion here just now when we read of Dr. Cook and Mr. Peary, the two great explorers, and the discovery of the North Pole and the honor and fortune of those great men. We would like to see them, but when we think of them as great men we don't want to forget that we have men in Forest county wbo could become famous if they bad Uncle Sam at their backs. We will just mention a few. Tody Price, a great fox hunter, clad in bunting clotbes, with dogs, gun and knapsack, started out last winter to find the arctic fox or the pole. After a long journey and many naraamps ne louna the pole leaning against a nig roc a, uui did not have the Stars and Stripes to mark the spot. But he did have one of Uncle Sam's nuns and with a load of double B shot marked a large arctic fox which bad a long black streak down its back. Alter a long chase away from the pole the fox escaped but Ihehuuter thinks he can tind It again. Another Ken his or this place invented a three wheeled tricvcle. lne biacK smith's bill was $9.60. When completed he mounted the machine but the motion was so great he could not steer it and tbe rounh rider ot the west tell into meaiicu. lore bis shirt, barked his nose, skinned his srm and then went crippling home, Oh. how the uravel new. He was dis couraged and hurt, lr he could bave bad a small compensation lor His macblne, say a live mill levy from the township or a small appropriation from the U. 3., no doubt we would all be running three wheeled wagons today. According to the llarrisburg Tele graph, usually accurate in its political prognostications, there already iB con siderable quiet discussion of the guber natorial timber available for the Republi can nomination next year. Inasmuch as Pittsburg and Philadelphia have the two senators and furnished the last three governors, it is conceded that Governor Stuart's successor will be chosen from the country. Former Lieutenant Govern or Watres, of Scranton, is prominently mentioned as coming from a section of the state that is entitled to recognition. Others whose names are beard in this connection are Senator Sproul of Chester, famous as the father or the good roads law in this stale and Lieutenant Governor Murphy, Cambria's favorite son. From the northwest Hon. Charles W. Stone and Slate Chairman W. R. Andrews have been suggested for the Humiliation. From a perusal of these and other names which might be added to the list it is apparent that there will be no dearth of good ma terial from which to choose when the time for selection arrives. To be shut in the vault of a ceme tery for ? l limit a was the experience of Mr. Lawson, .1. P., of Kluinlnn g. Out. lie had been examining it when an other man on going out closed the door behind him. leaving Mr. I.awson inside. The door has a spring lock. His shouts and cries for help weio of no avail. Fortunately for the Imprisoned man there occurred a funeral yesterday aft ernoon. When the door of the vault was thrown open I.awson rushed out half famished and suffering severely from shock. His liberators were startled by what they thought was an apparition. Mayburg. Miss Lena Auderson of Brookston visited Mrs. Stephen Steele over Suuday. Ward Boyd bas been quite ill. The ball game scheduled between May burg and Sheffield for Saturday was called off on account of Sheffield being unable to get all their playera together. Miss Helen Paul is spending the week attending the Corry fair. Miss Boulub Falls bas returned home from attending her father's ftiueral.

Editor Republican : I notice in your last issue a correction of an Item pub lished some time ago referring to the ball game played at Mayburg between Kel lettville and Mayburg. In tbe ninth in ning with the score six to eight In favor of Kellettville, a runner on third, two out and two strikes on the man at bat, the squeeze play was attempted. Tbe deliv ery was wide and the batsman stepped over the plate aud struck tbe ball In the catcher's mitt, Tbe ball bounded to the lirst baseman, wbo tagged the base, the umpire said "out," and everyone left the field. The batsman was out for Btepping over the plate. (Sec. 10, Rule 61.) He was out in accordance with Sec. 5, Rule 51, for he clearly attempted to binder the catcher from putting the runner out at the plate. Also out (Sec. 5, Rule 50.) It was contended that be was not out be cause he did not bit tbe ball; but It was tbe third strike. (Sec. 5, Rule 56.) And last but not least he was out because the umpire called him out. I was at the game and saw the play made. J. M. Aut.T, Sec'y Kellettville Ball Club, Til R Punxy Spirit calls attention to feature connected with the North Pole discovery which might easily be over looked, and which again brings out the noble traits of the despised and much abused cannine: "When the hardships, deprivations and courageous perserver auce necessary to reach the North Pole aro being discussed, it must not be for gotten that not among tbe least of the faithful heroes were the dogs that ac com pan led the expedition. Without the dogs, in whose reliability and cheerful obedience implicit faith could be placed the apex of tbe earth could never bave been attained. Here, then, is to the dog the oldest aud truest friend of man." Willi l is best fur liiilinclloiif Mr. A. Robinson of Drumquin, Onta rio, has been troublod for years with in digestion, and recommends Chamber laiu's Stomach and Liver Tablets as "the best medicine I ever used."

Tbe twenty-third annual convention of the Forest County Woman'. Christian Temperance Union, held In the First M. E. church, Tionesta, Sept. Hth and 10th, was one of the beat in tbe history ol the organization. Beside the officers, presi dent, Mrs. Sule May Sbarpe, vice presi dent, Mrs. Euphemia Mechling, record ing secretary, Mrs. Ellen U. Catlin, cor responding secretary, Mrs. Myrta Hu- ling, and treasurer, Mrs. A. B. Kelly, there were present quite a large number of delegates from the several Unions. The president's annual address breathed forth a loyalty to the principles of tbe W. C. T. U., a wide knowledge of Its history achievements, and a consecrated aervice to the cause au dear to the heart of every white rlbbonor. The reports of the cor responding secretary and treasurer iurer e In t part- I Bhowed the work of the county to be an encouraging ooudition. Tbe depi menta ol scientific temperance InstruO' linn, work among soldiers and sailors, flower mission, and prison and county home deserve especial credit or work done. Tbe reports Irom tbe different de partments showed a renewed zeal and better results. It Is believod, tban last year. The luterest manifested by tbe su perintendents and delegates wbo were preseut promises much for the success of the oomingyear. The entertainment fur nished by the convention was of a high order. Miss Edna Wallace Neill of Brad ford, accompanied by Tionosta'a brilliant pianist, Miss Olive Lanson, delighted the audiences with her charming personality and beautiful solos, as did also Mrs. William Alon Sbewman of Oregou City, Ore., with ber delightful read Inns. Tbe choir of the M. E. church also rendered two beautiful anthems. On Thursday evenlna a class from the intermediate department of tbe pnblio school, trained by Miss Blanche Pease, gave an Inspir ing marching aong, accompanied by ap propriate banners, also the song, Sa loons Must Go." Other features worthy of notice were parliamentary drill by Mrs. Alice Siggins of West Hickory; a paper entitled patterns aud problems by Mrs. N. P. Wheeler of Eudeavoi; a touching memorial of Mra. T. D. Collins by Mrs. Emma Secor of Nebraska, aud a paper on local option by Mra. Mechling of Ciarington. Mrs. Emma Graves Deitricb of Lock port, N. Y., was present during tbe en tire convention and her readiness to give information or assist lu any way possible helped to make every session both Inter estlngand profitable. On Thursday eve ning she spoke oa the subject, "Who Bids for the American Boy." On Friday evening ber splendid add res on Joshua aud the Woman's Christian Temperaace Union held the attention of the large au dience from start to finish. Too much cannot be said of Mrs. Deitrlch's work during the conveution, and the executive committee surely made no mistake in engaging her services. The election of officers resulted as fol lows: President, Mrs. Sule May Sbarpe, Tionesta; vice president, Mrs. Euphemia Mechling, Ciarington; recording secre tary, Mrs. Adda Keck, Marienville; cor responding secretary, Mrs. Myrta Hu ling, Tionesta; treasurer, Mrs. A.
