A MAN IN THE CLUB WINDOW
Up from the Cauldron or the past.
Now that love's day Is nearly done.
Leap lips I loved and forms I clasped:
The frail, fair Daughter of the Sun:
Eyes blue and brown, and gay and
grave;
The creamy throat, the swarthy
cheek:
The dancing nymph, the languid slave;
The soul of flame, the spirit weak.
I dream and I forget; they pass
Before my thought can count their
shames:
Mere shadows on a listless glass.
Mean memories and empty names.
They are the dim. phantasmal sprites,
(Stage plays of beauty, laughter,
woe)
That helped to speed forgotten nights—
Because I had and let him go.
But Someone Else, another shape,
Bemalns forever by me there,
Beyond all capture, all escape.
For my desire and my despair:
Bo them, the Daughters of the Sun,
The setting sun has gathered in,
And I remember only one:
The woman that I did not win.
—Reginald Wright KaulTman, in July
Smart bet.
"KICKED IN DE FACE
BY GEMMAN FRIEN'"
[Continued From First Pngn]
[ sincerity and grasp of tho practical
| questions with which he will have to
deal as Governor of the Common
wealth. Regarding the retirement of
Dean Lewis, the third party candi
date, Dr. Brumbaugh said:
"I notice that my friend. William
Draper Lewis, has surrendered to the
Democratic party. I am sorry for
him. In his primary platform, he ve
hemently denounced both the old
parties. He decided to live in good
company all by himself. He declared
that the future welfare of this State
demanded that both parties be de
feated and his party of hope and
promise given office. Strange it is
that he has repudiated himself and
retired from the contest. It will be
Interesting to learn In due time how
he was made the victim of sordid and
selfish men.
"As for the fusion, I welcome it.
In the Progressive party are many
earnest, honest men who entered this
movement conscientiously, and who
will now find how basely they have
been betrayed. Surely these men will
never surrender their sincerity to ,loin
in this ignoble and unworthy scheme.
I stand here now to welcome them
back to the party that they once sup
ported. I assure them it will be a
privilege and a pleasure to have them
join with me in giving to the good
people of Pennsylvania as progres
sive, clean and capable an administra
tion of our affairs as can any party
in the world."
Perhaps the most serious phase of
the fusion scheme and which is turn
ing away many voters of the Wash
ington party is the fact that It is con
trary to the whole spirit of the new
primary law which was designed to
overcome boss rule in the selection
of candidates. It Is believed every
where that the plan from beginning to
end was financial; McCormlck was to
pay the expenses for whatever sup
port could be transferred by the
Washington par'y bosses.
licnis Glad to Quit
Much significance is given in polit
ical circles to the comment of the
Philadelphia Record on the retire
ment of Lewis in favor of McCormlck.
As the spokesman for the Democrats
of Pennsylvania the Record says:—
It Is not at all surprising that
Dean Lewis. who was nominated by
the Bull Moosers for Governor, and
who helped to frame a platform
viciously denunciatory of the Demo
cratic administration and Demo
cratic policies, has decided to with
draw, and no one has any right to
question his desire to support the
Democratic candidate for Governor.
The effort to keep the Bull Moose
alive without the stimulus of run
ning Mr. Roosevelt as Its candidate
for something has failed in Penn
sylvania. as It has in other States,
and as. It was bound to fail with
out the continued supply of cash so
lavishly used here two years ago.
Mr. L.ewis has been in many parts
of the State In an effort to put the
needed life into a machine that
needed more oiling than he was able
to give it. and. discovering the
hopelessness of his candidacy, has
quit.
The Record intimates that the fol
lowers of will not follow him
into the Democratic camp. "But re
gardless of what the Bull Moosers
may do," says the Record, "the Demo
crats of Pennsylvania ought to be en
couraged by their floundering and the
strategy they think they are exercis
ing in an effort to make Mr. Roose
velt the Republican candidate for
president in 1916."
General Disgust
The Record also says if it .could
he proven that there was an under
standing between Mr. Palmer or Mr.
McCormlck on this action "there
would be general disgust over the
professions of sincerity of all con
cerned." In their primary campaign,
it is pointed out, both Palmer and
McCormick "represented themselves
as the special exponents of the ad
ministration of President Wilson, and
the bosses of the Roosevelt branch
of the Republican party are among
the most violent and most unfair of
the critics of the Wilson administra
tion."
The Record broadly hints that Dean
Lewis withdrew because he discovered
the hopelessness of his candidacy, and
then proceeds to say: "If he and the
other remnants of the Bull Moose
fiasco really want to insure the defeat
of Penrose * * * why don't they
do It by making Mr. IMnchot get out
of the race • * * in favor of A.
Mitchell Palmer?"
Perhaps the most drastic comment
on the surrender of Lewis to the
Democratic bosses is the following
from the independent Philadelphia
Public Ledger:
Political Vaudeville
"The antics of the Washington
party would spice the most laughable
vaudeville. Dean Lewis now gushes
forth with burning words of fulsome
praise of the Democratic candidate
for Governor, when only a few weeks
ago the Dean drew a platform, and.
over his signature, alluded to the
Democrats as follows: 'The Demo
cratic party as an instrument to ac
complish either immediate or perma
nent results Is impossible. Weakened
as it.is by internal dissensions, it can
not hope to command the full party
strength at the election. The Wash
ington party is the only channel
through which machine rule can be
destroyed.'
"This opinion of the Democratic
party sixty days ago was reinforced
by the doughty champions of Dean
Lewis in their State platform, in which'
they alluded to Mr. McCormick and
his party in the following raucous
terms:
We condemn the declared policy
of the Democratic party—tariff for
revenue only. Confessedly the pres
ent Democratic tariff Is only the
first step in the program of reduc
tion. meant eventually to wipe out
every vestige of the protection
principle from our tariff. This
policy we regard as a grave men
ace. » • •
The Washington party stands for
protection. • • •
We condemn the Democratic Ad
ministration for surrendering the
efficiency of civil and diplomatic
service to the clamor of Democrats
hungry for spoils. '
We particularly condemn the use
of the Federal patronage In Penn
sylvania to build up the Democratic
machine in this State.
"It is altogether a screaming farce.
Stripped of veneer and insincerity, it
reminds one of the old colored wom
an who was evading the cross-ques
tioning of a Philadelphia doctor seek
ing to discover the nature of her in
jury. Finally in reply to his question
she admitted she had been hit 'wid an
object.' 'Was it large?' 'Tol'able
large.' 'Was it hard or soft?' 'Tol'-
able hard.' 'Was It coming fast or
slow?' 'Tol'able fast.' And then, her
patience" exhausted, she exclaimed:
'To tell de truf, doctah, ah was just
nach'ly kicked in de face by a gem
man frien!'
"In the end It will dawn upon the
few heroic Washlngtonians yet cling
ing to the raft that 'dey was just
nach'ly kicked in de face by a gem
man frlen!' "
Gilford Still Circulates
As showing how the game is re
garded outside Pennsylvania the New
York Sun says Palmer and McCor
mlck "had to defend themseives at
once from the charge or suspicion of
an alliance with the Rull Moose rem
nant. They had to deny that they had
any hand in or. Intention of fusion.

OP U. D. GROWTH
Middletown Pastor Addresses Big
Gathering at Neffsville, Lan
caster County
The growth of the United Breth
ren Church from a little meeting in
the barn of n Lancaster county farm
er nearly 150 pears ago to its present
enrollment of over 315,000 members
with its Sunday school enrollment of
.'190,000 and owning church property
worth more than thirteen million dol
lars, was traced by tint Rev. Dr. I. H.
Albright, paslor of the First United
Brethren Church at Middletown and
historical secretary of the Kast Penn
sylvania conference, at an address at
Neffsville, l.ancaster county, Satur
day.
The address was delivered at the
anmiiil memorial meeting in the barn
on tlie old Isaac Long- farm now own
ed by Jacob R. l.andis, a descendant.
It was in this barn on Whit Sunday
in 17*>fi that a .big meeting of mem
bers of Lutheran, Reformed, Mcnnon
ite and Ornish churches was held un
der the leadership of the Rev. Martin
Behm, of Lancaster, and the Rev.
William Otterbein, of York. The or
ganization of the United Brethren
Church resulted from the meeting. At
the memorial services Saturday hun
dreds of churchmen from Lancaster,
Lebanon and York counties paid trib
ute to the memories of the church
founders.
The Rev. Dr. Albright said the first
regular annual conference of the
church was not held until the year
1800, the first class was not regularly
organized until some years later, and
the first general conference was not
held until the year 1815. The church,
he said, has grown until to-day forty
three annual conferences, 315,000
members. 3,400 churches, 1,118 par
sonages. property valued at more than
J13,000.000. Sunday schools, 3,380 with
an enrollment of 390,000 scholars.
Steelton Stough Meeting

A mass meeting In the interests of
the Stoiu'h evangelistic campaign will
he held in Centenary United Brethren
Church ne>Jt Sunday .afternoon. The
principal speaker will be Professor
Ellenberger, of the Sunbury High
School.
Yesterday campaign addresses were
made in Centenary Church by John
E. Musser and J. E. Herrold, of Sha
mokin. During the coming week cot
tage player meetings in the interest
of the campaign will be held as fol
lows: Tuesday evening, at the homes
of J. W. Barrlck, 4.' South Fourth

September 24 has been selected as
the date of the first annual public
reception tjo the new members of

This affair, which was originated by
the Rev. A. K. Wier, will be held in
the auditorium of Centenary Church.
During the conference year, which
ends September 31,' sixty-six new
members have been added to the
church enrollment. A committee of
eleven members is now arranging a
program for the affair.
COUNCILMAN KKSItiNS
| Joseph Wise has tendered bis resig
nation as a member of the Highspire
council. He assigned no reason for
his action. At the meeting Friday
night the Highspire council appro
priated SIOO to the Highspire Fire
Company and granted the company
permission to attend the convention
In Harrlsburg. President Ulrich an
pninted Councilmen Shelley, Hoover
and Leidigh to represent Highspire at
the Home Rule League meeting in
Harrisburg, September Hi.
In fact, 4he Bull Moose situation in
Pennsylvania is delightfully comic.
The Lewis campaign was hopeless. Ap
parently negotiations for Mr. Lewis's
abdication were in progress at Saga
more Hill some weeks ago, though the
fact was denied. Mr. Lewis's plat
form was full of jabs at Mr. Wilson's
administration and at the Democratic
performances and program."
* • •
"The platform of Mr. MrCormick Is
as generous in praise of the adminis
tration and Democratic policies as the
Progressive platform was in censure.
Ttie swift genius of the Colonel has
revolved rapidly from pole to pole.
"Meanwhile, that beautiful and
blameless woodlander, the Hon. Gif
ford Pinchot, who is,as likely to be
come a Senator as Dean Lewis was to
become Governor, is still in circula
tion.
"In some mysterious way, hidden
from common men. the abdication of
Lewis is to serve the cause of virtue
and injure Mr. Penrose. To the un
initiated it looks merely as if the
Colonel were still persuaded that he
can run against the war."
McC<vrniick anil Lewis Deal
That it is an impossible fusion is
the conclusion of t,he Philadelphia
Evening Telegraph, which says:—
"The withdrawal of William Draper
Lewis as the Washington party candi
date for Governor Is chiefly significant
as a confession of the, utter hopeless
ness of that party's cause. That hope
lessness was made evident by the vote
of the primaries.
"All that he can still control of the
fragments of the Washington party
in the State have been handed over
by ex-Senator Fllnn for the use of the
Democrats. He has wearied of the
noble and uplifting work of under
writing the party, and unloads on the,
most convenient murket. The Demo
cratic candidate for Governor has'
plenty of money, and as his lavish use '
of it in the primaries has shown, is
willing to spend it.
"This so-called fusion has long been
incubating. The Democratic bosses
have not given the Washington party
bosses any rest on the subject for
weeks. The Washington party candi
date for Governor and the Democratic '
candidate for Governor 'have con- 1
ferred frequently and have had an
understanding,' to quote from a re
ported explanation of Dr. Lewis. When
Fllnn and McCormick and Lewis were
all In town the job was fixed.
"This deal is a betrayal of every
one who was sincere in his adherence
to the Washington party. There were
still some such left in spite of the fact
that so many of the rank and file dis
covered the insincerity of the leaders
long ago and returned to the Repub
lican ranks. It is a betrayal of the
Washington party platform, which
condemns the policies of the Demo
cratic party."
Many other important and influen
tial newspapers take the same view
of the fusion deal, which is regarded
as a flagrant violation of party I
pledges. i

SCANDAL
B»- William F. Kirk
"It's awful the way that folks talk
about folks,"
Said Mrs. Mehltahel Spud;
"It's hard enough going to carry our
yokes
Without glttin' covered with mud.
I know Sally Jenkins has got a bad
name
And think that her brother's a
hound;
X know that Jake Lee stole some
chickens from me —
But why should I tell It around?
"It's true that the Langdons don't pay
up their bills.
And can't get no credit no more;
I know that insurance helped Emily
Mills
The time she set fire to her store.
There's lots of mean stories that
spring out of jokes
When people can't keep their
mouths tight;
It's awful the way some folks talk
about folks.
And it makes me so mad I could
fight."

SONG OF THE SEA
Great is the Yacht Reporter now,
He has much space and lots of pay;
He cometh in from' Sandy Hook
And serves trial races up this way:
"With rail awash she crossed the line
I And beat up to the windward fine.
With sheets belayed, all snug: and taut
She had a gentle list to port.
She jockeyed to a starboard tack
And then again to port came back.
They kept her headed south by north,
And, flying through a sea of froth,
It could be seen her topmost stays
Had buckled in two dlf'rent ways—
She pointed up to three degrees.
And threw her gaskets to the breeze;
The finish was a sight to see,
Corrected time, 3—33,"
The Yacht reporter likes technique,
As does the baseball man;
|To many, though/ it may be Greek;
Tt tickleth the Fan.
I THIN KIN*
Thinkln' refresh in' thought, like rain
In summer time,
i W hen ground's been dry for the long
est while and suddenly beats the
ryhme
of the silver, palpitant rain, and the
cool wind over it hlows,
And that's the loveliest kind of
thought that the human intellect
. knows.
Thinkin' tenderer things to say and to
do for the one
Who waits all day in the dream of the
years as they dance and run
Along on their feet of dew, and your
own cheek colors like hers
Thinkln' of love that way till your
whole heart trembles and stirs.
Thinkln' cool places of rest away from
j the heat and stir
Of the streets of the city that buzz
with that sleepless, eternal whirr
Of spindle and loom and thread, and
over you trees and vine's.
And the delicate blooms and the grass
and the far sea that sings and
shines.
—Baltimore Sun.

BUSINESS BBOVXXTT.
Stagnation la All Countries, Wot
Insuring This Security.
One of the
questions of the day relates to ,
the extent to which a govern
ment should interfere in the af
fairs of business. The success
ful man has always had to run
the risk of attack. Safety from
unreasonable Interference by
government or attack by others
leads the ambitious man *on to
his greatest exertions. In somo
countries, as in parts of /Asia,
government rapacity has'made
it dangerous for a man to ac
quire anything beyond his bare
necessities. In such a society,
nothing but poverty and busi
ness stagnation can exist. •, '
Governmental intervention in
the affairs of business should
extend only over such things as
are necessary for fair publicity
and truthful statements. Under
such a government, business se
curity Is at its best. Individual
ity and Initiative are encour
aged; the country Is progressive,
and its future prosperity Is well
guarded. But as soon as legis
lation begins to deprive the pro
ducer of a square deal, or wlier*
business is "regulated" by peo
ple without the experience and
necessary training, business se
curity will be transformed Into
business depression. A govern
ment should be limited to Its
natural functions of Just and
reasonable legislation for the
greatest good of the greatest
number of people, and should
never show favors In order to
"catch votes" or to secure cam
paign contributions.

we also manufacture a complete line of
lower priced roofings, building paper*,
