E suppose that every intelligent jtjll citizen has noted that wherever Republican management of public trusts is looked into nowadays, when those trusts have loirjj been in the hands of the manager of the Re publican machine, gross corruption appears. It poured forth in great Volume when the Philadelphia ulcers were punctured. It is pouring out profusely in the present inquiry into the sta'e insur ance department management; where in it is discovered that the insurance companies yielded up whatever was demanded of them, as submissively a? the traveler over the Western plains-is wont to throw up his hands to the highwayman. And of tl e mon ey so squeezed out, no acco lut was made to the state, but went into the freebooter's pock; presumably pass ing thence, in paif 1 , at least, to the Republican party fund, whi.h was thus kept overflowing in an easy and comfortable way. The insurance com missioner kept his eyes closed and took whatever flowed into his hands. The auditor general shut his eyes and passed the insurance commissioner's bills; which the treasurer blindly paid. — OUR rural correspondence is creating n great deal of interest in the columns of the Intelligencer. The wit and humor in them are considered very entertaining, and the mentioning of different parties, names in the arti cles is not to be considered as sneers or slurs on them, but merely to add more zest. While these communica tions may appear very funny and lu dicrous, there is much good solid sence to be derived by careful perusal. - CITIES IN 1910. We are four years away from the next Federal census, but the statistic al prophets are busy with estimates, computations and forecasts of the population of the cities in 1910. Ksli niates of the growth of the urban cen tres made before the census ol 1900 were approximately correct in many instances. The Census Bureau pins its faith to a certain law respecting the rate of increase of population de duced from previous census figures. Much interest therefore attaches to an estimate, published in the New York Snn, of the population of fifteen cities at the next census, made by an ex pert statistician who has had extended experience in the Census Bureau. The figures are based upon the past rate of growth, city directories, police censuses and upon the increase in the number of dwellings. The tremend ous building operations in the great cities for some years past show that there has been no pause in the yearly increase of population. According to this authority, New York in 1910 will have a population of 4,437,202, a gain of 1,000,000. Chicago, firm ly holding second place, will contain 2,298,575 inhabitants, a gain of 600,- 000. Philadelphia will follow with 1,818,6.(7, a gain of 525,000 —a re latively greater increase than that of Chicago. St. Louis will make an ex cellent showing, with 975,238, a gain of 400,000. Boston will stand in the fifth place—74o,B92—a gain of IKO, 000. Cleveland, with 601,768, will closely press Baltimore, with 688,957. The Sun correspondent commenting upon the figures, observes that the statistician does not allow New York ami Chicago any material increase over their gain in 1900. "Philadel phia fares better, because its gain in 1900 was comparatively small." The estimates of the population of gome of the minor cities show surpris ing growth. Thus Los Angeles will have 212,479 inhabitants in 1910, a gain of 110,000. The city will have doubled its population in ten years. Kansas City is credited with 303,752, an increase of 140,000. Seattle is also growing at a phenomenal pace. Its population is fixed at 160,671, gaining 80, in the t'ejade.— Public Ledger. Lumber lakes Big Leap. The most sensational advances ever recorded in the price of lumber iu the South Atlantic States was ordered at a mooting of tho Nortli Carolina Pine Association, at Norfolk, Va. The price on all grades of lumber was advanced a thousand feet for some of the bet ter grades and $5 on some other grades, principally the lower. This means a net avdauce in prices of from about 5 to almost 15 per cent., according to grade. Road Improvement. Supervisors G.

LIE PASSED IN THE HOUSE HARRISBURG, Feb. 7.—A new ituiform primary bill was introduced ill the house this morning by Mr. Howard,of Cameron. It does not differ materially from other similar bills. The Shreu amendment to the Bull it bill, taking Philadelphia employes out of politics, was passed finally. The house this morning definitely fixod February 15, as the date for ad journment sine die. The Hoke bill, limiting to $750,000 the amouut to bo annually spent on bridges, by the board of public grounds and buildings, was 'amended slightly and passed on third reading. Wheu the Cook Greater Pittsburg bill, as amended in the senate, came tip in the house, Mr. Cook asked that the house concur. Mr. Henderson,of Allegheny, fought concurrence, asserting that his amend ment, adopted in the house last week, was equitable and just, and that the house should not roverso itself at the request of the senate. HITCHCOCK IN FAVOR. Mr. Hitchcock, of Tioga, stated that he would vote for concurrence since Allegheny voters have shown by not presenting petitions, etc., that they don't care ono way or the othor. Mr. Riley of Allegheny rose to reply to Mr. Garner, who spoke 011 the bill. "The gentleman from Schuylkill," said Mr. Riley, "has declared himself the champion of the Allegheny county workiugmeu." Mr. Garner—"Mr. Speaker, I never said anything of the kind, aud the geut'eiuan from Allegheny lies." Mr. Riley—"You did, just a while Mr. Garner then explained why he had voted for the ripper. Tho Cook Greater Pittsburg bill was dually agreed to. WORK OF SENATE. The senate laid on tho table a mo tion to adjourn on February 15, and a motion to ask the governor to eularge his call so that the legislature may in vestigate state departments and report at a special session of the legislature on August 1, met tho same fate. The senate this morning agreod to a resolution, providing that a copy of the report of the committee that in vestigated tho insurance department be sent to the govoruor and attorney general for tho consideration of the recommendation therein contained. The senato passed finally tho corrupt practices act. On second reading was passed the MeWhinuey representative re-apportionment bill. Bills passed on first were the house personal registration bill, and house bill regulating tho deposits of state funds. The pavements in many placos are quite icy and great care should be ex orcised by persons in walking. It is at such times as the presout rather thau when a coat of sleet covers the sidewalks that persons become negli gent, and dangerous falls occur. Many a fall with the consequent broken limb results in something worse than a siego of typhoid fever or kindred ill ness. llow often it occurs, especially with those advanced in years, that a slight fall renders the victim a cripple for life. Property owners also have a duty in the premises. Upon them it devolves to keep the sidewalks as clear of ice as possible. Every bit of water that is permitted to find its way to the sidewalks, either from a loaky con ductor or from a hydrant kept running is sure to freezo solid over night. This is bad enough when exposed, but when the ico is partly coucealed by suow it becomes a veritable trap. Whero ice can not bo avoided the pavement should bo rendered safo by sprinkling saw dust or some similar substauco upon it. In fact evory method should bo cm- j ployed to reduco all danger to a miu- j imiun. MARINE LEAPERS. Tl»e Tumi Is the Moxt tirneefnl of the j JumperM of the Sea. Many of the inhabitants of the sea are good jumpers and soni£ have be come famous. Among them should be mentioned the tarpon or silver king, a huge lisli with scales that gleam like silver, which constitutes the famous game lish of Florida. The leaps of this beautiful creature are often astonish- j ing. Several years ago a steamer was rushing down the St. Johns river. The j captain was sitting on the fore deck, j leaning against the pilot house, when suddenly there rose In the air a beauti ful shining iish four feet hi length. It came on like an arrow and landed in the lap of the captain as neatly as j though it h id been placed there. In the Vaciflc waters the tuna, nn ally of the horse mackerel, is noted for its leaps. Sometimes a school sweeps up the coast and the powerful flsh, often weighing 800 pounds, are seen in the air in every direction. They are like an arrow, turn gracefully five or six feet in the alp and couie down, keeping the water for acres in a foam, and if lint the greatest jumpers they are certaiuly the most graceful of the leapers of the sea. PROBE POINTS WAY TO PROSECUTION HARRISBURG. Feb. 7.—As expect ed the probe of the insurance depait ment revealed aud the report of the in vestigating committee strongly urges prosecutions. The recommendations, seven in number, made by the com mittee follow: "First—That the insurauce commis sioner as well as all other officers, em ployees, servants aud ageuts of the Commonwealth, so far as practicable, should be on a salaried basis and that all fees now authorized or hereafter to bo authorized by law, should be paid by the commissioner to the State trea surer for the use of the State. "Second—That the actuary of the in surance department should be au offic er of the Commonwealth required to act exclusively in that capacity, for which he should receive a salary of $5,000 per annum aud bo provided with au adequate corps of competent assist ants to he on a salaried basis. SHOULD BE STATE OFFICIALS. "Third—That instead of examiners of insurance companies being sclocted promiscuously and paid by the com panies examined one or as many ex aminers of insurance companies as may be necessary should be officers of the Commonwealth and that the cost of the examination of the insttr auce companies when made by him should bo upon a fixed rate proportion ate to the work done aud its cost paid iuto the State treasury for the use of the State. "Fourth—Fees and charges'of the insnrauce department and taxes paid by insurance companies should bo re duced, so as to lessen the burden upon the policy holders. "Fifth—There should be a complete reorganization of the clerical force in the iusurauco department and the pre sent systom of allowing the insurance commissioner to draw upon tho State treasurer for any sums ho may consid er necessary as an expense of the office, be abolished. DEMAND ARREST OF GUILTY. "Sixth—Provision should bo made for a quarterly audit of the accounts of the various State officials receiving money or haviug in their control or subject to their charge any contingent fund either by special officer constitu ted by law for the purpose or a special assistant in the office of the auditor general. "Seventh—The committee further recommends to the attention of the governor and the attorney general the testimony given which may tend to es tablish malfcasaucc by former com missioners Georgo B. Luper, James H. Lambert, Israel \V. Durham and their subordinate, and especially in so far as it relates to the receiving of a part of the actuary's compensation during their respective administrations, and also to the testimouy that during the administration of Israel \V. Durham, the State was defrauded by vouchers being granted and payment made for services which had never been render ed or for which there was no legal liability. Library Repairs Progressing. Repairs in the Thomas Beaver Free Library are progressing very satisfact prily. The walls and woodwork in the two reading rooms and in the hallway are being prepared—the walls for the calcimining and the wood work for the "doing over" that will givo it the natural lustre it possessed when new. The gas pipes and the chandeliers have been taken down and the naked and torn up apartments boar little re semblance to the cozy and nicely ap pointed quarters which have afford ed our townspeople so much pleasure during twenty years past. The plau to close the building dnr | ing the progress of the work—which may occupy three weeks or more—as decided upon at first may be modified somewhat. The removal of the gas pipe and the chaudeliers makes it impossi | hie to use the building at night, but there may be certain stages of the work when people could bo admitted to the building in the daytime with out interfering with the work. On the whole it docs not seem unlikely that during the progress of tho repairs some such arraugemout may bo made that will enable patrons to return books due and tako out new ones. The library was closed Monday and , yesterday, a largo placard on the door i settiu r forth the reason for keeping tho buildiug closed. The library will also bo closed today and not unlikely ■ during the rest of the week. 1 Whether the library will bo open or ' closed ou any particular day will do [ pond wholly upon future contingencies I The wlwle matter is in the bauds of I the trustees, able aud conscientious • men, who will do the best that is pos •iMo fir the public 1 A Certain Cur-* for Chilblains.

The annual hunt for houses is now on, and as usual the demand seems to exceed the supply. The man who makes his money in trade is sneered at by the man who makes his by marrying it. Do not spend all your income. A man's duty to himself is to save money out of his earnings. It is 1 letter to pay a debt when you have the money than to be compelled to pay it when you haven't.

Caiiti>'»nß, the Gifted find I'nfortunate Author of"The Lunlnd." "The Lusiad" is one of the noblest recou's ever written of national glory and success. Caiuoeus, its gifted au thor determined to do for Portugal whar Ilomer had done for Greece. The gren poem was written in the six teen M century, which has been called the heroic age of Portugal, and its main feature Is the rounding of the Cape of Good Hope by Vasco da (Jama, whiii» a most interesting episode is the crowning after death of Inez de Cas tro us queen of Portugal. "The Lu siad" took its uame from Lusius, who was said to have founded Lisbon. Its author was born about 1520, and his career, which began brilliantly, was blighted by the death of a broken heart of the lady of his love, for whose sake he wus bauished from the land. lie wrolo "The Lusiad" in hi 3 banish ment and was recalled in 1571, losing on t .• v/i.v ail his property except his j -it tv it\l at first by the king » poet of Portugal ai graii,p'# erty in 1070, whbtf bis patroi Was also dead.

The reason of Lent will occur tin usually eaily in the year 1906. It h.'gtns on February 28th and ends on April 15th, too early for the ladies to do much with the Easter bonnets. A liar can ne.'er be reliel upon or believed even if the truth is told in a Ivertently by them. And yet such "gentry" are met too often in the journey through life, more's the pity. Many a person knows it is a wrong thing, when there is a good paper maintained in his town for him to trj to get all the news he needs from it by borrowing what his neighbor pays for. How is that sick neighbor? Step in once in a little while and see if you can do anything to cheer him up. It will do you more good than it will him, and it will bo worth n lot to him. Better keep a nice silver dollar as a souveuir, as Supt. Landis, of the Philadelphia Mint says:"From pres ent indications I do not believe there ever will be another silver dollai coined." Bit-gain hunters read the advertise ments in their local papers just a: they read the news. If you are not represented, you are not getting youi share of the custom of the community, Mr. Merchant, advertise! Is it no longer good form to be polite and considerate ? There are a thousand and one ways of showing good breeding and when they are lacking it is a pretty sure indication that the bresding is not there. Achenbach & Moore, at the Dan ville bowling allies, have for sale the celebrated "Sweet Girls," an extra tine 5c cigar, manufactured by the popular and well-known firm of John C.

Avoid drafts, do not lay of! any clothing or wraps because of the rise in temperature. Physicians join in agreeing that death lurks in the at mosphere. Be very prudent. Are there cracks in you chimney ? Look out for them. Winter is a bad time to be burned out of house and home. If not too bad, have the cracks nicely pointed up. If too bad for that, take the chimney down and lay it up new. It is easier anil cheap er to do that than to build a new house. If you do not have a regulation mail box to receive your letters and papers on rural free delivery routes you cannot have your mail delivered. This is a ruling of the department.

The Wilkes- Barre Record notes re ports from Glen Summit, Retreat, Laurel Run and Dallas that the sweet trailing arbutus is already in bloom. This is, indeed, a rarity for the month . of January, ltlOti, as arbutus is hard ly ever in bloom before the latter part of April. Many remarkable cases of a like nature in fruits ami flowers out doors are heard from in different parts . of Pennsylvania. This winter is a dandy record breaker and no mistake. It is said that the fruit crops may be injured by this excessive humidity i and heat. ' An exchange says that a new way t > make i/ioney easily by swindling people was introduced in its vicinity 1 Jiy.u stronger last week. The fellow i goes into a bom.' where he knows that the man of the bouse is gone ami gives to the woman a stick pin, saying that it was given to him by the husband to repair and the cost would be paid over to the swindler, as the woman would have no suspicion that the story was not true. ' Quite a number of women have given up their forty 1 cents for a stick pin that is worth abiut fivi'cents. ' The grandest luxury God ever gave man is health. lie who trades that off for all the places of earth is cheat ed. Many have envied Napoleon, but he would glady have given all his honors to have been freed from the gout. A diuner of herbs tnstes better to the appetite sharpened on a wood man's ax or scythe, than wealthy in digestion experiences seated at a table covered with venison and all the lux uries of the season. With good health we can sleep sweetly on a straw mat tress, while fashionable invalids get but little rest on a couch of eagle's down. Let us remember Paul's ad vice to the Hebrews, and if we have ' health in all other respects, "Be con tent with such things ns ye have." OCCASIONAL' ON DUTCH WATERS.

It is not the material aids to ex istence which are the bane of the hotel ; child; it is the mcutal and spiritual at ! titude accompanying this life which is to be deprecated. It destroys a democratic spirit through emphasizing the difference between the servant and the served, it exaggerates the power of money, fosters a spirit of depend ' enee and unfits the pampered Indlvld ' ual for any other kind of life, and, worst of all, in a child so brought up there can be no understanding or love of home. There may be some future for the child who knows nothing of art, some function for the one to whom literature makes no appeal and who is not sensitive to music, but there is no place lu the state for the man who has neither Initiative, self reliance, patriot ism nor love of home. He is a social menace, a disease. The community is better off without this satellite of tho parasite of the bell boy and source of supply for the waiter. If there is one child in eur communi ty who is superfluous it is the hotel child. As places for temporary occu pation by homeless and childless adults hotels are to be tolerated, but as real deuces for children they are without the possibility of excuse.—Miss Martha S. Beusley In Everybody's Magazine. DIED WITH HIS CHUM. A Deed of Ilerolmn That Stirred mn Entire Army. In the reminiscences of General Sir •Evelyn Wood, himself a brave English soldier, a touching instance of courage nnd self sacrifice is given. One June day In 18S5 a detachment of English marines was crossing the Woronzow road under Arc from the Russian bat teries. All of the men reached shelter in the trenches except a seaman, John Blewitt. As ho was running a terrific roar was heard. His mates knew the voice of a huge camion, the terror of the army, and yelled: "Look out! It is Whiotiiug DlcUl" But at the moment Blewitt was struck by tiie enormous mass of iron on the knees and throwu to the ground. He called to his special chum: "Oh, Weich, save me!" The fuse was hissing, but Stephen Welch ran out of the trenches and, seizing the great shell, tried to roll it off his CQinrado, It exploded with such terrific force that not an atom of the bodies of Blewitt and Welch was found. Even in that time when each hour had its ex citement this deed of heroism stirred the whole English army. One of the oSicers searched out Welch's old moth er in lier poor home and undertook her support while she lived, and the story of his death helped his comrades to nobler conceptions of a Soldier's doty. mm os fi A COW, H Steer, Bull or Horse gfljgyM hide, Calf skin, Dog Kflß^ skin, or any other kind of hide or skin, and let HraKjßOfl us tan it with the hair on, soft, light, odorless ESMfIH and moth-proof, for robe, rug, coat or gloves.

I was a A Hw? *> great suflerer from what the IWmM IWmM J physicians of Troy called BRIGHT'S DISEASE AS a last resort I commenced the use of Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy. The result is a little short of a mirryrle. All tha terrible symptoms of this disease at eg me. Ido not have any more difficulty in void ing the urine, no pain or acho in the small of the back, 110 more soreness across the loins or over the bl.iddcr, no more constipation or other symptoms of disease of the kidneys, liver or bladder. 80 you see, help came to mo In l>r. Kennedy** Favorite Kemedy. Who would begrudge the cost of this medicine (One dollar a bottle) for such a blessing or refuse this tok n of gratitade, for being perfectly cured? And I hope my writing this will induce others who sutler from kidney or blood disorder to use the medicine. My fon George suffered for many years with a fever sore on his leg. He used one bottle of this medicine and part of another, and as sure as I am writing this grateful acknowledgment, his leg Is entirely healed up." Dr.D.Kennedy's Favorite Remedy Rondout, N. Y.
