A fool can settle to his own satis faction, in a sentence, questions that perplex the wisest men, and cause statesmen and philosophers to feel thai they need God's wisdom to com prehend, llis Omnipotence to master aud much time to adjust. The race question is such a problem. You can hear its solution in every street ear. Jleu sitting on nail kegs at the coun try stores, on beer kegs in the dog geries, aud ou more pretentious seats in churches, court rooms ami news paper otliecs are saying: "Thus and thus saith the sage, il is settled." The wise lawyer taps his bulging fore head aud says: "Law has mastered it and I am its exponent." The wise editor grinds out a solution that is sold on the streets in twenty minutes ami forgotten in an hour. The wise preacher misquotes or misapplies his liible and considers himself a prophet. The wise statesman clears it all up in a wise speech, and eagerly waits for some follower to procl tint him a greater man than Moses or lioosevelt. J.esser lights repeat the statements of these, and declare all plain as day. Meantime, reporters from North and South send dispatches that make hades gleeful and cause the thought fid to have keen regrets; news that in cites the wicked to boldness and that shows die race question is yet very much a perplexing problem, one for statesmen, students, editors aud, most of all, for the commoners to meet earnestly. It is not one for figures only. It does not read: If one ship can carry a thousand blacks to Africa in lifteen days, how long will it take for the world's fleets to transport the miHimis? It is not: If among a thousand colored people so many more are born in a given time than among the whites, how long before the blacks will outnumber the Anglo- Saxons? It is not: II the power of a black brain be one half that of a white mail's brain, how many years will it take to make the black man or woman happy to be the underling for his paler neighbor? It can not all be stated by a question like this: If a negro boy without a history can rise in two or three decades to become a Booker Washington, how long will it require to make all negro boys into great men? Nor, If a brutal negro becomes a notorious desperado or a bestial villian after forty years of aw ful ncgWt, how lontr will it require to make all into criminals? Much less is it possible to state it: If a race of slaves, after decades of slavery, which followed centuries of heathen ism, were easily controlled as slaves, how easy will it be for their descend ants to become serfs after forty years of freedom? Neither is it wholly a question of marksmanship or denunci ation or torch. Yet il has as factors such minor questions as those of birth and death, of brain and brawn, of commerce, church, school, service, heart, soul and all that affects human ity. Tillman's pitchfork and Koose velts' manifestos, the teacher's spell ing book, the labor question—itself unsolved—and rope and torch and knife, with love and hate, and whis key and lust, and law and gospel, and criticisms and force and helpful coun sels all these are factors, but there is a larger one yet that must not be un derestimated. This nation settled the race question once by the word slav ery, or thought it had (say, rather, it created it), and complacently sat dswu to sclf-gratulation as its great wisdom, but God laughed us to scorn and gave us our choice between na tional death and letting the oppressed go free. (iod is the chief factor now—for Righteousness and Justice are other ways of spelling God. What are 11 is mandates? Answer that, and the rest is easy, for the best policy of nations, as of individuals, in the long run is to do right. What is right? A fair chance, with neither unjust favors or needless hardness for any. No domination except by lair means, and the dominant givijtg the minority a square ileal. Togo into details would be to add. another fool production to the thousands already forgotten, but to say distinctly tlinl < iod aud eternal right must not be forgotten is timely now, as it always [ is. It no question is over solved un til (iod and right are reckoned with, it is extremely important to seek for this true .solvent. Extremists are rarely absolutely fair or right. There is :i middle of the road, a straight line, if we can but find it. The would-be leader who deflects to one or another extreme is not safe to com mand, but may be a guidon showing where not to go. While il is true that slavery will never bo the solution, nor peonage, for you can hatch a chicken but can never got it in the shell again, it is also true that a freeman can enslave himself ami hurt his fellows by con tinued ignorance, intemperance or usi'lessuess. Idleness and vice are the black man's worst foes as they are the white man's enemies. Liberty and wickedness are not to be synony mous in litis hind. There need be lior fear of slavery, and very few would want it, but the train of freedom will carry the incorrigible criminal to pen al servitude, as it ought. It should not be foigotten that neither at a New England town meeting nor a Carolina barbecue will a monientuous question like this be settled. What is wanted is the fairness and righteousness of the Golden Utile. Oh, nation, called to meet this difficult problem, ask first and always: What is fair and tight for all ! The answer for a cen tury may not be indicated in a mo ment, but if justice for all, which is "the square deal," shall be the wish of honest minds, the clear judgment for each step will be given. Passion, prejudice, torch aud gun will then give place to a united determination nf the best and sanest to "tote fair." What is fairness? We can't multiply either a freeman in white, or a freed ntaii in black, by neglect, and ignor ance, and have as a product good citizenship or high morality. It is not fair to any to try it. Neither church or state can be fair to any class by ignoring the morals or educa tion of any. The breeze that blows over a pestilence may scatter its bac teria anywhere. The white man's home may any day be darkened by the miorobs from a black man's fever, and the reverse is equally true. Lust and hate breed their own kind in all races, and a bad unit in any color may scatter his immoral germs where least expected. In this matter, mind must beat frenzy, love must conquer | bate. The ravisher should be pun ished by law, but law must protect good men and women who arc doing right, and with no color line discrim ination. Such must know the law is a friend and a rock of safety. DOWJI, forever down, with appeals to unrea soning emotions and bias, aud up with the Golden Rule, for the greatest danger that threatens is not jjeiith to one, but dishonor and surrender of self-control and law by many.) OPPOR TUNITY It is said that opportunity knocks but mice at each man's door. I tell you it is knocking all the time, but tlie car must he trained to hear it by ceaseless devotion of every energy and effort to doing the thing you have to do to the best of your ability. You hear it said that nowadays the young man lias no show, that great combina tions of capital and enterprise have eliminated the chance of the individ ual. It is NOT so. Never in the history of (he world has there been such a demand and such opportunities for the 'Noting man who can do what ever he has to do, BETTER than the other fellow. Long and faithful ser vice are not enough. You arc paid regularly for what is required of you, according to the demand and supply in its doing. It % is the man who so studies his work, who so concentrates his mind and effort 011 his work, who seeks to do that work, no matter how lowly it is, 15ETTER than anyone else has done it, that is largely sought today as he never was before. In our own great enterprises, and it is so in all great enterprises, the one greatest problem is the MEN and WOMEN— competent, capable and brainy en ough—the men and women who can do things better than others, that is ever present. Many a time have the details of some large enterprise been planned out and its accomplishment was clear, until it came to the ques tion, Who is the man to fill the place ? Night after night have those at the head of the concern gone carefully ' over the qualifications of every man ' and woman in employ, seeking the RIGHT one for some task, the suc cessful accomplishment of which meant ' llie making ut the one to whom it 1 should be intrusted. ALWAYS must the success hinge on the individual. If you are one of several hundred em ployes of any concern, don't make the mistake of thinking that those at the head of it do not know what you are doing and how you do it. Not only do they know it, but they know what men and women employed by their COMPETITORS are doing BETTER work than their own ill (hesame lines. A new face appears in your midst and you wonder why an out-aider got :i position over you. If you had studied your own work and life as carefully as your employer had you would have the answer. BACK TO THE COUNTRY. There is a great movement spread ■ ing over this nation, which is the re turn of the wave that has rolled in the opposite direction so long. Less than ten years ago, life 011 the farm had but few of the attractions of city life and endless hardships. Today the telephone, rural delivery, and even the automobile, are making the city man seek the country home. This movement is but in its infancy. Parcels pogt and other "privileges" will one by one be forced from our lawgivers between island empires and isthmian canals. We may even Jinpe to see some of the hundreds of mil lions now [loured' out each year on our savage principalities, or presented to grafting monopolies, spent on our roads and waterways. Possibly we may even live to see 11 postal bank for the "common" people iu the coun try. DON'T get too smart with your con! man just because your coal bin is ; full.

FIRE CHIEF PRESENTS REPORT TIIO retiring chief of the fire depart- 1 ment, George Kocher, presented Inn ' report for the past year at the regular 1 meeting of the borough council Friday 1 night. The report revealed that in the 1 matter of fire during the past year the 1 borongh has been especially fortunate, while as relate* to hose and all neces- I sary appliances for fighting fires each 1 of the companies is well equipped. ' The report reads as follows: Number of llres, seven; amount of ' damage, $8"i0. Amount of insurance paid to Mrs. Georgo Myerly, $38.01.

An inventory revealed that there is 1000 feet of iuferior hose ou hand as house; 300 feet at Washington hose house; 200 feet at Friendship Fire company's building. Iu addition there is 10 or 12 feet in the hands of P. J.

Each I has a first class hose wagon,with lant i erus, spanners, nozzles, plug wrenches - and all other appliances needed in ' sutticiout number. The borough has - oue stoam engine, which is in the 1 custody of the Friendship Fire coin , pauy. > Fell From Building. Wesley Morrall, of Riverside, a car ' peuter who is at present employed on the construction of the residence be ing built by Emerson Adams on 1 Church street, across the alley from 1 the rear of the jail property, sustained 1 a fall from the top of the building 1 Tuesday, miraculously escaping with his life but sustaining the most severe iujurios. 1 Mr. Morrall was working on a fiat portion of the roof at the very top of the unfinished building, when he slip | ped ou the wet surface. Ho was pre cipitated toward the edge of the roof, striking the eavos, aud then fell head" foremost, uuto a pile of sills in the • alley, a distance <Tf about 25 feet. He struck the sills with the back of his ueck aud head, and thou bounded into the alley where he lay unconscious. ! Help came spoedily, aud he was car ( Hod ii.trt tl.o homo ofEraorsou Admus, ( aud a physician summoned. He had sustained a big gash on the back of his he.id, but his most severe injuries were in the bruises aud gouerally bat tered couditiou. He was unable to arise all day Tuesday aud Tuesday afternoon was taken to his home on the south side. Birthday Party.

MUCH LEGISLATION, i Referring to tho legislative session which will properly begiu after tho inauguration of Governor-elect Stuart, fleranton Truth suggests that "Much legislation of a remedial nature has I been suggested and there will be plenty of work for tho members to do. They • havo it iu their power to mako tho prc*eut session memorable for tho sub stantial benefits whioh tho State may derive from their work. It is to be hoped that they will prove equal to • their great opportunity. " And yet. no matter how well they do there is sure to be dissatisfaction aud adverse criti i cism. Berwick to Expand. Persons in Berwick who are favor ablo to an annexation project, which i will take in the outlying towns of East aud West Berwick, are talking of i introducing at the coming sessiou of tho legislature a bill that will enable tho btirough of Berwick to anuex the town "of East Berwick, which is a part of Salem township, Luzerne county. Tho plan is said to be favored by the residents of East Berwick, rather than to form a separate borough of tho town. 550 Hincrs Killed Last Year. Reports from nearly all the anthra cite districts show that there was a total of 550 fatal accidents in the miues last year. Tho men killed left 172 widows and 640 orphans. SCRANTON UNDER MARTIAL LAW SOKANTON. Jan. 9. Sixteen u«w cases of typhoid (ever were reported for the twenty-four hours ending at uoou today, making ♦he total irambor of cases reported up tu date 1,01 it.

CHICKEN POX AT WASHINGTONVILLE There is more or less of an epidemic of chicken pox amoug the children at Washing ton ville. The disease is not of a virulent type, and none of the little sufferers are in imminent danger. Burgess Gibson returned to Susque hanna university ou Monday after spending the Christmas vacation at the iiome of his parents, Mr. aud Mrs. C. F. Gibson. Mr. and Mrs. Adam Goss have re turned to their home near Sun bury af ter a visit at the home of Mr. aud Mrs. R. B. Moser.

Referring to the agitation in favor of increasing the pay of members of the legislature, makiug it #a,ooo in stead of $1,500, the Pottsvillo Chrou-, icle Hays that "somo of the legislators are, no doubt, worth tho increased sum, while there are others who— well, are not worth it." The truth is that the present salary is very meagre when compared with tho inevitable expenses of senators and members. 1,000 Pies for Sale. An enterprising farmer in Dover township. York oouuty,advertises tliaj ho will give away free 1,000 pumpkins pies to the persons who attond a pub lic sale of his farming implements aud stock, which takes place soon. He has also secured the servico of a brass baud or the eutertaiument of his iutendiug purchasers. OUT IN BRADDOCK They are evidently paying more for their milk out in Braddock now than formerly, and tho Braddock Herald is responsible for the assertion that "some poople wonder if the advance in water rates inaugurated by tho Pennsylvania Water company last sum mer, had anything to do with tho rise iu the price of milk." There has boeu twelve cases of ap pendicitis iu Coatesville, Chester county, within two weeks,aud iu can sequence an anti-appendicitis club lias been formed, of over 100 promiueut men of tho town. Each member is pledged to live according to a prescrib ed set of by laws aud rules, which set forth what to '.do to keop away the dread disease. WOUNDING A FIRE. An Odd Superstition That Dates Back to Auclent Timed. A curious modern attempt to ration alize one of the oldest of superstitions is to be found In Kipling's "Life's Handicap.** There Mulvaney checks the author from stirring the fire with Ortherls' bayonet on the ground that lire takes tUe heart "but of the steel. The real reason is much more mysteri ous. It was one of the maxims of Pythagoras "not to stir the flre with a sword," and to this day the wander lug tribes of North America aud of northeast Asia hold it a sin to take up a burning ember for a pipe light with the point of a knife. The ex planation is undoubtedly given by Jo hannes de Piano Carpinl v'hen lie tells as that one of the Tartar superstitions concerns "sticking a knife Into the fire or in any way touching the flre with a knife or even taking meat out of tho kettle with a knife or cutting near the flre with an ax, for they believe that so the head of the flre would bo cut off." This is evidently connected with tho ancient idea that flre Is a living crea ture, a sacred animal, which must not be wounded by its human owners In case It should be anuoyed and deprive them of Its valuablo services. Is this In any degree more irrational than the belief still existent umong housekeep ers that a feeble flre can be made to burn up by laying the poker across it. —Loudon Outlook. TEA BUGS AND TEA MITES. They Are the riairuen of the Annan* Tea Hardens. Every animal and plant has Its para site, and from this general law, It 6eeins, the tea plant is not exempt. Two iusects are described as spending their lives in tea drinking. They are the plague of the Assam tea gardens and are known as the tea bug and tea mite. The mites spend their entire lives on the toa plant aud are uever known to attack any other leaf. They live In families and societies on the upper side of the full grown leaf and spin a delicate web for a shelter. They then puncture the leaves and pump out the liquid in fhe plant veins. They seem to become very dainty lu their tastes, for a sprinkling of mud dy water over their floor and tea table is the only remedy kuown to check their ravages. Even!* not ft|- ways effectual. The tea bug Is still more destructive aud Is evidently possessed of an ap preciation of the best kinds of tea, since it always attacks those of a mild and delicate flavor. Such as af ford harsh aud rasping liquors are al most entirely free from its attacks.— bondou Chronicle. DO YOU GET UP WITH A LAME BACK? Kidney Trouble Makes You Miserable.

The Canonsburg Daily Notes at tributes some odd doings to constables which we do not believe applies to these officials in Moutour county. That paper says: "A wide-awake oitizeu who lives within the boundar ies of the county in Pennsylvania known as Washington says are doings among some of the constables of the county which would not bear the closest scrutiny. For instanco: Constablos will infor mation before a justice of the peace for somo alleged violation of the law, any selling liquor without a license, for illustration, and then almost as soon as the information is made, Mr. Coustablo will goto the accused and tell him that by all means he should have a lawyer and that he can recom mend him to a good one. The accused | takes to the idea, and asks constable to speak to the lawyer for him, and this is done aud the lawyer issocured, and then when the hearing comes off there are no witnesses aud the cast) drops out—bat certain people are ahead financially, all the same, don't you see." A Protective flovement. The Shamokin Gun Club is setting an example which might be followed with advantage in other neighbor hoods. It has appropriated SSO for the protection of game through the killing of foxes, minks and othor destructive animals. A dollar a head to the ex tent of their fund, will be paid fir each of those animals killed within a radius of fifteen miles from Shamok in, the scalp to be delivered to the sec retary of the club. Immigration Unrestricted. The recent rormation of the organ ization which seeks to promote im migration to this country ought to stir up Americau citizens to a sense of duty to the couutry. Recent statistic show that we received over 1,000,0 CX 1 newcomers last year. They also shi w that the countries frjm which in oth er years the bulk of our new citizeu s lip came sent us tho smallest num ber of immigrants in 1906, while otliui countries, as Russia, Italy, Austria liunzary, sent the bulk of the immi grants. It is admitted by tho commis sioner of immigration that those wl o arrived last year were distinctly n forior to their predecessors. Now, while there is every reason why the United States should be tx tremely hospitable to all who desire to eujoy tho protection of our institu tions or take advautage of the oppor tunities for rising in the social or business scale, it is certainly the duty of the people to protect their institu tions from destruction or from such serious modification as would practic ally make au eud of them. It is pleas ant to thiuk of our republic as the asylum of the oppressed, but it Is not the highest wisdom which makes it a dumping ground for the refuse of Eu rope. There is no obligation upon us to lose virtue in the effort to tako care of tho ruiued lives which Europe is too glad to seud here. Various etforts have beeu made dur ing the last decade to secure tire pass age of a proper law restricting im niigration. but these have all been de fdated by tli3 powerful lobby which some mysterious intlueuca h:is main tained at tho federal capital for the express purposo of preventing the ad option of such legislation. A bill pos sessing many admirable features is at the preseut time pending iu congress. The same sinister influences were strong enough to delay its pnss&go last year aud there is reason to fear that they may be equally successful uow. It seems singular that already tho ad vocates of unrestricted immigration are so powerful. It is evident, that un less something definite is accomplish ed soon the couutry will bo eutirely at the mercy of its alien invaders. There ought to be uo obligation up on the part of this country to admit through its unguarded gates so many who have achievednothiug but failure iu the home laud. Already the rapid increase of crime by our alieu visitors from various soctious of EJurope shows the dangers by which the country is confronted. Tho law which provides for consular inspection before the im migrant sails from hi-t home would be a great improvement upon oxistiug conditions aud would unquestionably permanently detain upon the other side many who uuder other circum stances would become a bun e i aud a menace here. The educational test is not so vital. A man who has a record for sobriety an 1 goad citizenship at' home would make a good citizen here, even if he isn't able to read aud write.
