My father .has got papers saying we arc really, truly Americans; all of us, we are all Americans, forever." There is more in that than mere childish pride in a new distinction. The little girl unconsciously expressed the great fundamental principle under lying the growth and stability of this nation. It is because so many of the immigrants of other years cast off for all time their allegiance to the coun tries from which they came and de voted themselves earnestly to adapt ing themselves to their new surround ings and becoming good citizens cf the land of their adoption that Amer ica is America, as we know it. No body can be a good American until he puts the United States first and foremost in his thoughts among the nations of the world. The newcomer may look fondly back to Germany and wish the Fatherland well. He may cherish tender memories of old Ire land or carry with hini to his dying day sweet recollections of sunny Italy. It is to be expected that he will. W T hat concerns the land of his birth natur ally concerns him, but only in a senti mental way. It made life so difficult that he fled to a new home, and, naturally, he is devoted, with a devo tion akin to passion, to that new home —to the land of opportunity that has opened its gates to him. Its in terests are his interests, and the in terests of his children and their chil dren —and 10, he is an American, ready to light and die for the flag, if need be. It is so that Americans are made, and the little girl in the up-town school merely voiced the sentiment that on this continent has welded the widely differing peoples of all the na tions of the world Into one great, harmonious, homogeneous whole, when she. said: "We are not Italians any more; we are Americans, forever." UP-TO-DATK METHODS ANNOUNCEMENT that the Eliott-Fisher Typewriter com pany has positions at its dis posal for fifty young men of Harrisburg and vicinity trained in the salesmanship methods of that corpor ation ought to be encouraging news to many boys who have been inclined to believe that there are no openings left in the business world for the am bitious youth of to-day without colle giato education or family "pull." The idea of the Elliott-Fisher com pany in drilling Its own sales force and building from the very bottom is right up-to-date, if not a little ahead of the period. The company is will ing to take any bright, industrious young man of *ood habits and pleasing address, give him a course In sales manship that would cost him some hundreds of dollars if he got in a commercial school, provide him with a job and turn him loose to make good on his own resources. Nobody could ask for a more gen erous offer, and the opportunity is open for dozens of young men to enter a line of work that in years to com© will lead to advancement and promi nence in a broad commercial field. PAY WIXII/E LEARNING BACK of all child labor legislation is an effort to give the youngsters a cliance. In every community there are boys and girls who must work to help out the family In come and In times like those through which we are passing the wages brought home at the end of the week by the lad or lassie who works In a mill, a factory or a store form a big factor in keeping roofs overhead and bread on boards. They also help to keep the little workers clothed and to furnish that share of amusement to which youth is entitled. In times gone by the labor of children was exploited and if we believe some of the state ments made there are people who would overwork children now. But we prefer to believe that the employ ers of this present day are willing and even anxious to give the youngsters a chance that belongs to every one in this broad land and especially in for ever free Pennsylvania. Some es tablishments which were decried as horrible examples have been found to j be modula and certain manufacturers X mlpr • 1 ' MONDAY EVENING, HARRISBURG &££& TELEGRAPH FEBRUARY'S, 1915 huvo been so progressive that the beneficial laws will have to hustle to overtake them. The mere question of hours that may bo worked is not of as much im portance as giving the boy or girl who must work the opportunity the times decree. It has l>een found to be good business to make a portion of the hours of labor hours of Instruction. The boy who Is given a chance to learn is worth a lot more to his em ployer than the boy who is placed in a seat and given a machine that re quires little more than the occasional labor of hands and of whose construc tion lie is not told, it has been found that investment in schooling of Juve nile employes has been profitable in the end and the time has about come when Pennsylvania can provide that Bome portion of the period of work shall be devoted to instruction and that pay shall go on while learning. Prominent manufacturers recognize this and the details can and should be worked out. Every "kid" is entitled to his "white alley," to use a slang term. HKAI/TH OFFICERS THE Health Board has asked for two additional sanitary officers. It does not appear that it is going to get them. There is neither the money nor the inclina tion, it would seem. But there is a secondary recommendation that Coun cil might do well to consider. It is this—that by turns the city police force act as sanitary officers. It might be possible to enlarge the duties of the whole force in this respect. The police could easily perform a larger duty than the mere preservation of order. It would be right in line with present-day governmental ideas to make each one of them a health of lier with certain specific duties to perform. A CHOICE OF DUTIES SECRETARY OF STATE BRYAN returned to Washington yester day. It is to be presumed that he will remain for a day or two, looking over his mail and arranging for more Chautauqua dates and politi cal speeches. Perhaps, also, if he finds time, he may give a little thought to linal disposition of the puzzling Werner Horn arrest, involv ing, as it does, delicate points of di plomacy; or the Dacia incident, or the fate of the Wiihelmina, or the equally obnoxious maritime decrees of Germany and England, or the Mexi can muddle. Perhaps he will, but it is doubtful. These are matters for the consideration of deputies, clerks and underlings. They relate to nothing more vital than the honor and the peace of the nation. If such govern mental trifles can be attended to so as not to interfere with cliautauqua and political speeches, all well and good; if not, why, let them wait Ticket-buying audiences demand that the lecturer be on time, and far be it from the purpose of the dulcet-voiced, ducat-hunting Mr. Bryan to disap point them. STAGE-LIFE AND HOME LIFE HEARKEN to this from the lips and heart of that veteran of the English and American stage, Ellen Terry, in the language ol' a Philadelphia interviewer: Oh, young people! Get married. The woman who avoids romance foregoes, as Meredith says, a celes tial crown. Have grandchildren. Well, my grandson, Teddy—Gordon Craig's son. you know— Miss Terry took a little copy book from her desk and spread it open on lier knees. It was tilled with Teddy's stories about "the rat and the crownle"—his pet name for a rab bit—with extraordinary illustrative pictures, done in colors. Miss Terry hung over them, radiating anecdotes of the youngster's clever ness. Suddenly she stopped. "Is lie really clever?" she demanded, "or am I merely a grandmother?" An actress whose highest ambition is to be a worthy and happy grand mother! Ye blond-liaired ladies of calcimined countenances, who go flit ling from one matrimonial bower of infelicity to another, read and take notice. Here is one who has rung all the changes of theatrical fame and who has found no greater joys than those of family tics. Evidently stage and home-life are not incompatible after all, much as recent divorce court records might have led one to sus pect. THE FARMER AND HIS OWN FOR some time people observing economic conditions in Pennsyl vania have been noting that the trend of the times has been to give the farmer what song and story and orator have generally called "his own." It does not require a man of any extraordinary foresight to realize that the Keystone State must raise more food, and as agriculture is the basis of living, officials, bankers, manu facturers, legislators, scientists, in short, men in many lines, have been giving of their thought and various means to make life on the farm more comfortable and at the same time to separate the farmer from the profits on his products. Now the State Is about to extend its already noteworthy educational and other works for the farmer. Life on the farm Is to be detached from its dullness and monotony. The social center that was In existence at the cross roads school house before they lighted up the school buildings In the city and unlocked the doors to the neighborhood after dark is to be en livened. And all the time we have been thinking about this policy to make the boys and girls stay on the farm and become husbandmen and house wives and safeguarding the produce of the farm the rural dwellers have been working along their own lines. They now have telephone systems and they are no longer restricted to the creek for a bath. Incidentally, a late State report says that 7 per cent, of the farmers of Pennsylvania own auto mobiles. The farmer appears to be approach ing "his own." AN EVENING THOUGHT Genius is onlj- great patience.— < Button. | I EVENING CHAT 1 Commenting upon the statement by the author of a State publication on the trees of Pennsylvania to the ef fect that the original 120 varieties of trees of tills State are still, represent ed in the woods and forests of the Commonwealth, a Harrisburger inter |csted in outdoor life says that at least [a third can be found within fifty miles of Ilarrisburg. "Few people realize what Interesting studies of ihc trees of the State can bo found in the woods and on the mountains not far from Ilarrisburg," said he. "This portion of the Susquehanna Valley never was in any particular belt. No trees have predominated as they have in other parts of Pennsylvania. The trees about here are mostly oak and Chestnut, but neither one has been more abundant than the other. Trees of many kinds are abundant and the studies that | could be made on the mountains in tlie upper part of the county or over on the York hills or in Perry county would give plenty of material for a book. The First mountain contains a score of well defined varieties of trees and a stroll along it some Saturday in summer would repay anyone Interested in forestry. The mountain shows what could be done hereabouts tf people planted trees as they should." Talking about the reported grow ing use of lime for fertilizing fields in the State, prominent farmers say that it has become necessary because of the fact that many people have not regarded the importance of manuring fields. "If people would spread ma nure in winter time as zealously as they do in the Spring or Fall they would bo surprised at the results. What they should do Is to spread it weekly," said he. "Spread it whether there is snow on the ground or not. Do not allow it to stand out in the barnyard, but put it out on the fields and scatter it generally. I know of farms in Cumberland county that have shown big returns from this custom and it would help some in Dauphin and Perry." Presbyterians of this city and vicin ity are taking an unusual interest in the approaching ninety-ninth anniver sary of the Sunday school of Market Square Presbyterian Church which will be celebrated within a fortnight. This Sunday school, which is one of the largest in this part of the State, is the oldest in Ilarrisburg, although the Presbyterian church is antedated by the Reformed congregation. Mar ket Square Sunday school has been fortunate in having in its officers self sacrificing men and women who have given freely to their thought and time that it might progress. The anniver sary will be ol' much interest in the general history of Harrisburg this year. The Harrisburg Railways Company countered on complaints about cold cars in a clever manner the other day. For some time people have been "kicking" about cars not being as warm as they should be. It was de clared that the service was not good to which company officials replied that there was no cause for complaint. Then they installed thermometers. Some of the complainants insist that the thermometers did not appear until after some tests about heating cars had proven unsuccessful. As a matter of fact, say policemen, the city has been bothered less by tramps this winter than for a long time in spite of the fact that last Fall they were numerous and man?." good strong men were out of jobs and "on the road." One of the reasons ascrib ed is that the winter set in early and drove the tramps to the South, while the men who would work managed to get places in the cities and towns which enabled them to keep off the streets to a certain extent. There has "been less begging than would be ex pected and a good bit of that Is by "panhandlers." Speaking of "panliandllivg" there are a couple of men who make syste matic visits to various parts of the city and Steelton. They are garbed in a manner that is a good advertise ment and they make the rounds about once every two weeks. Each time they have a different story and when the stories get frayed they drop out of sight for a time. D. Clarence Gibbonev, the Phila delphia reformer who has been here a number of times in regard to his pro position to reimburse liquor dealers If prohibition comes, had an inter change of views with "Billy" Sunday the other day and did not get any where. Sunday declined to accept his views at all. Governor Brumbaugh has not been impressed with them either. Tt did not take long after the snow began to fall yesterday for men con nected with the track gangs of the Pennsylvania railroad to get on the job. Up through the yards they were inspecting switches an hour after the first flakes began to foil. | WFH KNOWN PEOPLE 1 —Alexander Foster, who conducts the Danville stove works, has resumed operations to keep the force together. —H.

War Did Not Shake Their Market A manufacturer of a well known household product, wideb and splendidly advertised, re ports that his business has ac tually increased during the so called "war depression." He attributes the fact to more discriminating buying. He believes the public, edu cated to a belief In the quality of his product, turned to it in dull times. In this case advertising forged n particular brand ahead at a time when others were going back. The advertising had estab lished the idea of character in the mind of tlie public, and In times of stress that character was a verituble gold niine of assets. WILSON NOTICING REVOLT IN STATE One Reason Why Warren Van- Dyke Has Not Landed, Is Re ported Disgust at Capitol • PALMER'S STAR SETTING Penrose Says That the Republicans Will Sweep the Country Next Big Election According to stories brought here from Washington President Wilson and the officials of the national ad ministration are commencing to take notice of tho manner in which men opposed to the Palmer-MeCormlck leadership arc shaping up things in Pennsylvania Democratic affairs ami tho election of Congressman John J. Casey as a member of the ways an-J means connnltteo over Palmer's man Lcsher was not without effect. —The fact that Palmer has not yet landed in a berth is a subject of gen eral comment although it is predicted that he will be as well treated as Guthrie, Klakslce and others who "re formed" Pennsylvania Democracy and promptly took big places. —One of the stories brought here is that the reason Warren Van Dyke. secretary of the State Democratic committee, has not been named as revenue collector for this district is that men not in sympathy with tho Palmer-McCormick leadership have gotten in behind T. K. VanDyke and are demanding recognition for his Democracy, which was as strong when P.ryan ran as when Wilson was a can didate. It is contended by these peo ple that the machine Democrats have had more than enough considering the awful defeat into which they led the party last Fall when they had patronage and everything else in their favor. Tt is said that the protests against Warren and the support given T. IC. have attracted much attention among the top-notehers at Washing ton who are said to be "on to" the real situation in the Pennsylvania Demo cracy at last. —An interesting test of how the Wilson people feel toward the dis credited Democratic leaders of the State will be furnished by the appoint ment of the subtreasurer at Philadel phia. Palmer and his coterie have recommended John B. Evans, of Pottstown, and Congressman Casey, who trimmed Palmer in the Demo cratic caucus, and others are asking the appointment of Congressman Rob ert E. Lee, of Pottsville. who fell out side the breastworks. Congressmen elect Dewalt. Liebel and Steele, the latter Palmer's successor, are saifl to be strong for Lee. "Next year there will be a political landslide, which will restore business prosperity to the country and will again entrench the Republican party in power. It will mark the disappear ance of the Progressive party, and the complete merger of the Republicans who strayed from the party fold in ; 1912 with the parent organization." This statement was made by Senator Boies Penrose at' Washington Satur day night. "The situation in which the Democratic party finds itself In the Senate," continued Mr. Penrose, "with its party lines broken and its pet administration measure on the verge of defeat, but accentuates the situation that exists in the country. Demoralization has overtaken them. They are divided and they are passing through a repetition of many previous experiences, when their organization could not hold intact and their lead ers failed to keep their ranks un broken. Although I have been back in Washington but a few days since the election, yet I have had an oppor tunity to talk with a number of my Republican colleagues in the Senate, and I have found every one of them hopeful of a Republican victory next year and lull of confidence. They be lieve that the party have good reason to feel that way. "Do you expect to see Colonel Roose velt i>aeK in the party next year," Senator Penrose was asked. "I cannot speak for the Colonel," said he, "but we welcome all the Progressives, no matter how for they have strayed from the fold. There exists no reason for a division in the Republican party. We have a, common enemy to fight in the Democratic party. We want all the recruits we can get." —The Philadelphia ledger yester day reviewed the seventeen districts in which judges are to be elected this Kali and predicted that in all except Philadelphia, Allegheny, Lancaster, Northampton and Montgomery liquor would be the issue. In the Mifflin- Bedford-Huntingdon district, made "dry" by Judge Woods, the judge will run again. Other districts in this see lion which elect will be Cumberland, Franklin, Adams-Fulton and York. Center and Tioga have lively cam paigns on already. Others are Mer cer, Beaver, Westmoreland and Wash ington. —Dr. M. M. Daugherty is now safely on the public payroll as postmaster of Mechanlcsburg. lie assumed office last week, but will not start to clean house for some time. —Friends of Congressman Palmer are expressing their pain at the tardi ness of the national administration in recognizing his sterling qualities aa a patriot by appointing him to a place. It, is intimated that Pnlmer will be counsel to tho Trade • "ommisslon, but tlio failure of tho administration to come to the front is causing some worry among the true patriots. —The Philadelphia Uecord says: "Announcement, was made in local Republican clrcioa yesterday that tho several election bills planned to strengthen the organization grip bv blowing out fusion, eliminating the nonpartisan ballot and like shifts, would not be presented by Senator Crow, in tho Senate, to-night as origi nally scheduled. On second thought the leaders decided to discuss this drastic legislation with Governor Brumbaugh and obtain his views be fore proceeding on their own account. A lialt was called in the preparation of the several bills, and It Is now thought that some of them, if not all, may be dropped In case the Governor declares his opposition to any sweep ing changes in the present election laws."

Overstudy and lack of exercise make thin, bloodless children. It is a com bination that provokes St. Vitus' dance. If your child is thin and pale, list less, inattentive, has a tickle appetite and Is unable to stand still or sit still, you must remember that health is even more important than education. See to it at once that the patient ' does not ovorstudy, gets at least two hours out-of-door exercise every day, sleeps ten hours out of every twenty four and takes a nonalcoholic tonic like Dr. Williams' Pink Pills until the color returns to check und Hps and the appetite becomes normal. For growing children who become pale and thin Dr. Williams Pink Pills are not only safe but in the great ma jority of cases they are the very best tonic that can be taken. They build ' up the blood and strengthen the nerves : and assist nature In keeping pace with rapid growth. The IJr. Williams Medicine Com ■ pany, Schenectady, N.
