H. L. SNYDER, Publisher sqi ike spratt comments. "Looks like snow," said Squire oc h? hrlri INihiser ^pr*u *-??? *uv^uuj9 ? ??v VVi rowed a match from th& editor and ca!m!v rut the box in his pocket. "My wife told me I had better come to town and get a five-gallon can of coaloil. f r .-he didn't want to be like them foolish virgins in the Bible that had, no oil in their lamps, in case we get snowed up. We had a mean time of it the last blizzard. The coaloil give out. we broke the last lamp shade thcru was in the house, and we only had 1 a coup c ?f candle ends to light up with. One tiling, though, we could lay abed unt l daylight, for there was no user getting up early. We went to bed with : the chickens for about a week." The Squire gave a dry chuckle. "Yotf | town pe pie are a funny lot," he said, j "Your electric lights save you all this kind of trouble, and yet there are fell-1 ers who are trying to push the company j to the wall. I hear 'em in some of the stores cussing out the town light ar.J water company and abusing the men that run it, never giving them a bit < t credit for keeping the thing going ;n -pitc of all difficulties. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves for kicking em. when you should be patting >,? chnutHpr Atn I rii>ht or I cm on " >- ? -wrong V" \X'e admitted that maybe lie was right. "Maybe!" he snorted. "Haven't the men who put their money int<| this company been publid-spirited and generous? I have been told that not one of 'em has gotten a oent in divi? dends in the five or six vears they have i been running the thing Mr. Goldsi borough. thc president, Mr. Hodges, the treasurer, and the other officers* and directors have been carrying the burden and giving their time and at? tention to the company's affairs, with* out a rennv of pay?no salaries, nd dividends, no privileges?and paying just as much for light and water as anybody else Seems to me they show up purty well beside the fellers whe have been knocking 'em, with no money invested, no responsibility, no cussing, and getting the benefits of light and water for a few dollars a month." The Squire had gotten red in the face I he delivered this oration. His pipd had gone out. He asked for anotheP match and was reminded that he had I the box in his pocket. It was sug\ gested to him that what the people ob* jected to was thc surcharge of 33 1-3 per cent on their light bills, which! J made them a third higher than they were when thc company first went into business. ii9 "Bah!" he exploded. "What can . you git these days that isn't higher t ascd to be? These here very H - c -i about twice as much as H the few years ago. You grui . about the company adding on H 33 1-3 per cent. We country folks who 4 use e >al oil lamps are hit worse than H that. Our oil that used to cost ten ^ cents is now fifteen?a 50 per cent inf crease; lamps carry the same ad7 .5 vance, tor we pay UO cents for a 4(J | cent lamp. Lamp chimneys are almost 3 a hundred per cent higher, for wc! * pay fifteen cents for the same thing we got at eight cents a few years ago. } Even the wicks are up a hundred per Cent, ti>r you have to pay two cent:) for the wick you got a while back for | one cent. You haven't got any cause) > < to growl over a 33 1-3 per cent in\ crease in electric light rates. Ho\d j much more do you pay for your print;t iag office supplies than you used to?" d It wa5 admitted that such things were 9 about double what they were in norma) 9 times, but the editor made the sugges3 ti"ii that the electric light bill at his ho: :or January was $9.55. M "Indeed!" said the Squire. "And j I whose fault is that?

"Go on," he said. "Ho\m I becf-iooms do ye have lighted I up, *rith the women folks a-primpin', I t at litt e baby of Bill's crying, and so I 1 he editor reluctantly admitted I K? five. "Uh huh!" said the Squire, "anj i uouldn't be surprised if somq I of ye don't lie in bed a-reading half thd night, with a swinging light over head.

( "1 our bill may be high," he said, "but don t blame the company. Shut down on so many lights and burning 'em s<) frequent. I heard a fellow growling *n the store the other night, and hd w k using lamps up to a hundred watts! u,,cn 40 0r oo would have done just well. Study the question a littlej ?

The Squire picked up his hat. "1 must be going," he said. "If any of you people want to live without electric lights and waterworks," he remarked, "why don't they move over to Sample's Manor or go to this settle! ment they ca'l Egypt, back of Leetown'd | Goodbye!'

The second section of trains 13 and 14 on the Norfolk & Western Railway which have been operated on th<i Shenandoah Valley division for several months past, have been discontinued, the last run having been made on Sunday. These sections were solid express trains, carrying one passenger coach only. A new arrangement has been made by which trains 13 and 14 will again do all the local express busi- ! ness between Hagerstown and Roanoke while the through sealed express cars will be transferred to trains 1 and 2 which will haul them over this division on fast time. This will neces sitate the bringing of heavier locomotives to this division, as several express cars will be added to these trains, which pass through Shepherdstown about 1.30 at night/ Some of tho railroad and express men think that the new arrangement will not work out satisfactorily, but it will be given a trial. Oae result will likely be the old nuisance of having train 14 late almost every night. Town Meeting Tuesday Night. A meeting of the town council, the officers of the Shephcrdstown Light and Water Company and interested citizens was held in the town council chamber Tuesday night, when the rate? for light and water were discussed. A petition had been presented to the Public Service Commission, asking that these rates be lowered. The company's j omcers claimed inai ir was not reasiDic to do this at present, and showed that in the five or six years they had been operating no dividends had been declared, no salaries had been paid ex-| cept to the superintendent and a clerk and that all the income was devoted tr? running expenses and the payment of debts. There was full and free discus- 1 sion from all parties, and the resul brought about a better understanding j of conditions that will result, we fee' j sure, in fair treatment all around. The t?*> desirab'e rooms on the sec- j ond floor of the Register building, for-, merly used as a dentist's office, are for rent.

Members of the Reformed congregation last Thursday night visited the | parsonage loaded down with good things of every sort, and left with Dr. Flickingcr and his family a very generous supply of provisions, sufficient to keep the pantry attractive for somq time. It was a very agreeable surprisu to Dr. and Mrs. Flickingcr and the little Flickingcrs. One of the heaviest snows of the year covers the ground throughout this section. It began late Tuesday night, and most folks were surprised when they awoke yesterday morning to tind a deep snow, and still coming down at a rapid rate. It kept up all morning and continued feebly through yesterday afternoon, until it reached a depth of about nine inches. The country looks very beautiful, but travel is rather difficult. The weather is not very cold and the anow will probably leave before long. Sleigh bells are jingling, and they sound a deal better than the squawk of automobile horns. Invitations have been received for thd marriage of Miss Uula Ray Shull daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clay anuu, or Koanokc, Va., to Mr. Jacques Armand Morichard le Fevre de Mon^ tagny, of Paris and New York, to be celebrated February 22 in St. John's Epis-> copal Church, Roanoke, Va., at 8 o'clock in the evening.

Walter E. Herr, of Shepherdstown, has also decided upon teachiTig as a profession and joined the short course seniors. Leslie Robinson, who was out last week on account of mumps, has just enrolled, while Stanley Hawse, another mumps patient, is still detained at the boys' dormitory. Arlie Simmons is recovering from quinsy and Miss Ruth Clipp is at present suffering from a bad case of tonsilitis. Miss Gladys May, who went to Hardy county for the short vacation between terms, has not yet been able to return, owing to the illness of her mother. Miss Grace Stalnaker completed all requirements of the standard normal course at the end of last semester and is now a teacher in the pubic schools f Elkins, W. Va. A most impressive chapel scry^e was held Monday morning, at which the following Lincoln Day program was given: Hymn, Faith of Our Fathejrs; Scripture reading and prayer, Rev John A. Giosc; Battle Hymn of the Republic; Lincoln's Autobiography, Brown Jenkins; The speech that made Lincoln President, President W. H. S. White; A Tribute to Lincoln, by President Roosevelt, Shirley Cooper; The Typical American, by Henry Grady. William H. Hiett; Abraham Lincoln, Elizabeth Hill; The Toy Shop, Mary Michaels; The Beauty, of Lincoln, Rtv. John A. Gross; Gettysburg Address, Flsyd Flickinger; America. The program showed the splend'd talent among the students of Sheohgjd College and consisted of a number ol nru/ and instruct!!/.. hit. rnncrrnfiD the Great American, quite different from the usual selections we hear Rev. John Grose told some new ^pd inspiring stories of people who wwmi impressed by the kindness of Lincmnl that they spoke of him as a man of beauty. President White contribuftd much to the program by giving an Interesting account of Lincoln's Cooper Unian address. The exercises were arranged by Miss Ella May Turner, head of the English department, to whom praise is due for making every program she sponsors a suaeesa. Laat week the boy's basketball team had a big night going to and from Berkeley Springs, not to mention a brief sojourn with the high schtio! boys af that place. At the end of the first half the score stood 30 to 7 lit favar af S. C., after which our boys eased up a little and let their hcAtu off with a 44 to 23 defeat. Saturday evening Frederick School for Deaf appeared on the college fl6or in uniforms, displaying a big M. Our boya were in fine form and well indeed that they were, for the foe was worthy. Spectators, sufficient in number to fill the seating capacity of next year's physical education building, were on hand for the fray, and those from the more favored positions especiaUv saw the most interesting game of tft season to date. At the end of the first half ear boys led by two field goajs, but ateng in the second period they were pa**ed by the visiting team. The Frederick boys said nothing but kept on tossing in goals till the game ended 27 to 19 in their favor, when they gathered in a circle and gave a spirited yell in appreciation of the courteous treatment they had received. To the spectators it sounded almost as unin* telligftle as a real college yell or tha hifaiafln song of a musical artist, but they Iked the sentiment neverthelepd and bade goodnight to the boys from Frederick with a heavy round of ap? plaaae. Chambersburg High School was defeated by our girls Saturday afternoon at Cbambersburg. During the first * qnartpr the Pennsylvania girls led, but after that Mary Michaels saw to it that the final score should be different, and not a siagle field goal was thereafter scored by the high school forwards, fn the last half Chambersburg made Ave points from fouls, while S. C gathered twenty points. Shepherd College has a girls' team that is excelled by few in the trl-State sectiort and they should have won by a mucll larger margin than 35 to 17, though they ware arrayed against a foe tnat we regarded as unbeatable in years past. Safcmday evening they will meet the Ckgaiiersburg girls again, this time 1n Ae ftcal gymnasium with its fa? miliar posts and pipes and in the presence of a sympathetic group of speeaod we suggest that tb? scoaabCtptt bring a pocket full of welf-pofnt* ed penalls "We'll be there, trying not to tone sight of the ball. F%Hpwlng the basketball g.ime with the CVaaibersburg girls, the Y. M. C. A. will give a big supper for the benefit of the European Student Relief Fund.
