Another evidence that we never grow too old to learn. — Leu tsi.A'l'ivj: action is certainly taking a wide sweep into "paternal ism''' when a bill is passed prohibiting one man buying another a glass of soda water or a bowl of beef tea, or even a cigar. Of course, such a bill can not be limited to men; its provi sions will even keep a fellow from buying his girl an ice cream soda. Where is the boasted paladiutu of our liberties ? —-LOVE has a long reach, and can and does cover an awfully wide range. There is a nice lesson for these folks who rush into matrimony, and then try to rush out again through the medium of the divorce courts, in the romance of two couples just married in St. Louis. In both instances, the courtsnip began five years ago in far away Hungary, Poverty compelled separation. The men came to this country, earned money, sent for their sweethearts, and married them. It is love like this, that reaches over seas and across continents, spanning long years of patient waiting, that really makes the world go round. —PII'K-HMOK I N< ; is becoming more popu'ar eviry day in the East we are told, and therein do we read the signs of vengeance. It looks very much like retaliation for the agitation and the legislation against the cigar ette. Pipe-smoking has been popular in the AN est for so long that the mem ory of man runneth not back to the contrary. The erstwhile noble red man was a great pipe smoker in days of old when "bad men were bold" lit Dodge City, Deadwood and other frontier towns, and even long before there were any men, bad or otherwise, bold enough to venture so far into the wilds. A\ ith this long record of pipe work back of us the threatened re popularizing of the pipe has no terrors tor us. Rut then there arc pipes and pipes—meerschaums, briarwood, cobb, clay and others, not to sav anvtliing of pipe lines and pipe dreams. It is from the two latter that the greatest damage has been and can be done in the West. If it wasn't for pipe dreams we wouldn't be so sorely af flicted with yellow journalism, and hut for pipelines the Standard Oil Company wouldn't be such a terror, — IT is hardly possible that there is any serious intention of dramatizing the I haw case, but then you can't tell where to set the limit when there is the possibility of making a few dol lars. When the play wriglit finds ma terial, as he lias done, in the comic Sunday supplement he may be expect ed togo to any sort of source or dig into almost any sort ot muck heap, and to find inspiration even in the deeds aud the environments of a de generate. If the thing is to be done, we venture to suggest that it be done right, and that lie production of the play be committed to the rght pco pie—provided, of course, the right people can be found. Out of the org inal Florador.i Sextette, whose name is legion, it ought to be an easy mat ter to fiud enough actresses, so-called to take care of all of the female roles, provided they have not grown fat or decrepit. There is no doubt that there would be a perfect rush of aspir ants for the role of Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, a veritable avalanche of ma terial, and there would be au equal number of young women eager to pla\ the part of Slav McKenzie, Evelyn's chum and dearest friend. Tiien might he some trouble ill finding just the right women for the roles of tin mother of the man who killed White, and one or two of the other female parts; but for the role of the sister, the Countess of Yarmouth, there would be a surplussage—an embar rassment of riches, as it were—"soc ie y women" who would pay for th< privilege, instead of seeking lemunera .ion for the scrvic.-. So far the thing look- possible, but now we strike the tough parts of the proposition. Where in the world, even in Aetorland, would it be possible to fiud a man willing to play the role of Harry Kendall Thaw even remotely in ac cordance with known facts, and what inducement would be sufficient to se cure a man to portray Stanford White, the man whom Thaw shot? No, sir; after a little thought, the thing looks impossible. Even the most desperate and daring of the theatrical promoters will hardly dare undertake such a tiling. WHY? Give every man his due, but don't let every man do you seems to be the proper way to view things these days, even if you must resort to crooked anil biased means to obtain your end, or at least that is the way many of our public office holders or seekers think. The man of action may be a man of faction, but he at least does some thing if he doesn't get any credit for what he accomplishes. Today the Intelligencer is considered far better than in any other period of its exist ence, yet it is no surprise to have it "turned down" when there is prim ing to be given by office holders. There is more expense and time spei.t on the make-up and construction < 112 the Intelligencer than all the other weeklies of Danville combined, yet this fact, which ii veiy perceptible, goes unappreciated, and the slur does not fall as heavily upon the editor or the paper as it does upon its intelli gent readers—which comprises the best, most influential and largest number of well-posted readers of Montour county. Why this slight ? We cannot say, except it lie that the editor is not of the "convivial sort"- that generally goes to make up and hold the friend ship of the political boss or petty poli tician—that is the friendly glass" is despised and we take every man at his word, believing that Anuim has been buried deep. The thief is much more welcome to our sanctum than the liar, for we can protect our few small articles that he may covet under lock and key, l.ut the liar is the one who destroys and robs to such a degree that the loss is irretrievable. The Intelligencer is Democratic. It does i,ot adhere to every thing done by democrats, but it believes in "gov erment by the people" and will only advocate those principles that is bene fitting to the common people or the greatest number thereof, and tries to be fair. We say, EMPHATICALLY, THAT THE INTELLIGENCER SHOULD RECEIVE FIRST RE COGNITION WHEN PUBLIC PRINTING IS TO BE GIVEN. IT IS NOT ONLY THE OLDEST, BUT THE BEST AND LARGEST CIRCULATED WEEKLY PAP ER IN THE COUNTY, (of course all our intelligent people know this by lending only ft giuglo gluucc in the direction of each of the various journ als), and no one dare refute this argu ment. This article may seem a little mys terious iu its construction, but if read between the lines, all is clear, and we leave it to our many kind friends to ponder over, and incidentally solve the questions as to why the Intelligen cer, should not eome first ? and why it is the one to be first slighted ?

Charactar of the Section Which It If Propped to Take For the En largement «% Capitol Park. Harrisburg, Feb. 11.—The mustr* tlon which accompanies this letter shows a view of the central section of that part ot Harrisburg lying between the present <r.pitol grounds and the Pennsylvania railroad, which it Is pro posed to acquire for the greatly needed addition to Capitol Park. As will be seen from the picture, a vast majority of the buildings in this section are common and cheap, and this picture, showing the central part K - ■ !iS ■ '• .V, - £1 : . / p"" ; life;*- "' Looking Fast On State Street from Fourth Floor of Capitol Euitding. through which State street runs, ts by far the best part ot the tract which, exclusive of streets, contains about 14 acres of land. A vast majority of the buildings In this section are cheap and in many cases squalid, built of frame and in habited, many of them by ignorant and vicious negroes. The whole section is skirted by the main tracks of the Pennsylvania railroad. If it Is cleared off and made into a park as proposed It will give everyone a fine view of our magnificent capitoi who passes through on a railroad train. At present only a glimpse of it can be got through State street and the narrow alleys, north and south of State street. Moreover, available sites for big manufactories and warehouses adja cent to the railroad are becoming very scarce. If the state does not secure CINCINNATI PEOPLE EXCITED The Great Cooper as he is Called Has Stirred up That City to a Remarkable Degree. Cincinnati, O. Feb. 14. This j city is at present ill the midst of an excitement beyond anything that it experienced in recent years. Old and young, rich and poor, all seem to have become beside them selves over an individual who was a stranger to Cincinnati up to two weeks ago. The man who has created all this turmoil is L. T. Cooper, President of the Cooper Medicine Co., of Dayton, Ohio, who is at present introducing his preparations in this city for the first time. Cooper is a man about thirty years of age and has acquired a* fortune within the past two years bv the sale j of some preparations of which he is j the owner. Reports from eastern cities that preceedcd the young man here were of the most startling nature. Many of : the leading dailies going so far as to j state that he had , nightly cured in public places deafness of years' stand ing with one of his preparations. The ' physicians of the East contradicted i this statement, claiming the thing to I be impossible, but the facts seemed to bear out this statement that Cooper actually ilid so. In consequence people flocked to him by thousands and his prepara tions sold like wildfire. Many of these stories were regard ed as fictitious in Cincinnati and until Cooper actually reached this city little attention was paid to them. Hardly | had the young man arrived, however j is. i scion rrrr varb Iho largest yard and the best Coal at the lowest prices. 2240 lbs to every ton, and ali my coal is kept under cover.

Bear« u ho /) The Kind You Have Always BoucM this land now it Is inevitable that great buildings will very soon be built in this section along the railroad which will forever shut off a view of the capitol and so enhance values that It will be practically impossible ever to make the enlargement of Capitol Park, which every consideration of good business demands should be made. The United States government Is now about to pay $10,000,000 for a comparatively small tract of land to enlarge the White House grounds and provide aites for necessary buildings for the executive departments of the United States government. Thirty-five years ago. before Washington got its boom from the enterprise and fore sight of Governor Alexander R. Shep herd in laying and paving new streets and In various other ways beautifying and improving the city, the land for which the government will be required to pay $10,000,000 could have been gotten for one-twentieth of that sum, $500,000. If the enlargement of Capitol Park is not provided for now the time will pass forever or we will in a few years be compelled to pay ten times as much as we could secure the land for now. Senator Fox's bill appropriating |l,. fiOO.OOO to pay for the land was report ed favorably by the senate committee on appropriations on Wednesday, This appropriation will not interfere in any way with the appropriations for pris ons, hospitals, asylums, 'schools, good roads, nor any other proper expendi ture by the state, for it will take some years to acquire the property, and the bill will carry a proviso that not mora than one-third or one-fourth of the total appropriation shall be expended In any one year. It is confidently expected that the bill will pass both houses, as It ought to. There is no sane or cogent reason why It should not pass and many rea sons why It should. J when he began giving demonstrations, as he calls them, in public, aud daily met people afflicted with deafness aud with a single application of one of his : preparations actually made deaf peo ' l>lc hear again. In addition to this work Cooper ad i vanced the theory that stomach trou ble is the foundation of nine out of i teu discuses and claimed to have a preparation that would restore the j stomach to working order and thus get rid of such troubles as rheuma tism and affections of the kidneys aud liver, in about two weeks time. This statement seems to have been j borne out by the remarkable results I obtained through the use of his prep aration, aud now all Cincinnati is ap parently mad over the young mau. Ilis headquarters resemble a veri table stampede. Thousands of people j are visiting him each day, and the j druggists are selling his medicines in I enormous quantities. What seems to make Cooper still more popular is the fact that he prac j tices extensive charitable work and lias already dispensed a small fortune among the poor of the city. How long the tremendous interest in Cooper will last is hard to estimate. At present there seems to be no sigu of a let-up. Reputable physicians claim it to be a fad that will die out as soon as Cooder leaves. In justice to him, however, it must be said that he seems to have accom plished a great deal for the sick of this city with his preparations. Stone Mauling Frolic.
