Gen'l Manager BIG DEFICIT I STATE ROAD FUND It is very evident that some of the State roads asked for by counties of Pennsylvania will go begging for sev eral years to come. Indeed it is very donbtful whether all the roads con tracted for will be built, beoause of the unavailability of funds. The im provements asked by various counties amuunt to $24.E18.908,whi1e the avail able appropriation is only $.">.710,000, letving a deficit of $19,219,258 Out of the original appropriation there was available to Juno 1, 1907, $11,500,000 The State has paid out on contracts for road construction tiie sum of sl.- 991,048. The balances unpaid on exist ing contracts amount to $1,580,952. making a grand total of $8,572,000, which is over $72,000 more than the amount available. This sum will have to be paid out of the $1,500,000 which becomes available for use on June 1 of the present year, in order to complete payments on work already contracted for and In many instauoes partly con structed. In a statement giving a list of coun ties, the total number of feet applied for, the approximate cost of construc tion, the amount available to .Tune 1, 1909, and tlie deficiency Montour and nearby counties show as follows : ■ Montour applied for, 101,308 feet; approximate, $202,616; amount avail-, able, $24,138; deficit, $178,477. Lycoming, applied for 263,773 feet; approximate construction, $527,524, amount available,sllo,3B3; deficiency, $417,162. Columbia, applied for, 109,580 feet ; approximate, $219,160; amount avail able. $72,439; deficit $146,720. Northumberland applied for 203,828 feet; approximate. $407,656; available, $72,406; deficit, $835,249. The Annual Cleaning Up. The melting snow reveals many un sightly places and has brought about the usual conditions incidental to spring. After a siege of winter such as we have passed through, one feels that any change would be agreeable that would eliminate snow and ice. The latter on melting, iiowever, is apt to produce mud together with oth er accumulations that are both un hualthful and unsightly. If we reoall the experience of other years we may be led to wonder whither the second condition is not nearly as bad as the first. The paving on Mill street is objec tionable enough, all of which, of course, is unavoidable. The bricks are covered with sticky paste, which makes it exceedingly disagreeable for pedes trians in crossing the street. Nearly every back yard contains au ash pile,intermixed with garbago rep resenting the winter's accumulations. It is unquestionably the most dispirit ing season of the year. Nevertheless, it is a period that humanity eacli season has to pass through and complaint is as puerile as it is futile. The best that we can do is to hope that the change from winter to spring may be sudden aud abrupt—that warmer weather may come soon aud coutiune without many variations, drying up the mud ami causing old earth to take on a more cheering aspect. Meanwhile, we can help ourselves a 1 i'tie, if we begiu the process of clean ing up and renovation just as soon as conditions justify it. The street com missioner will no doubt see to it that Mill street receives its customary saraping aud sweeping as soon as the paving dries off sufficiently. The ash man will soon get busy aud his over tures looking to au engagement should be met in a friendly way. Let him be put on the job early aud, while the back yard is being cleaned up.give the cellar also a renovation using quick lime in unstinted qnautities in case there should be dampness or impurity. Thus, while the premises aro made pleasing to the eye conditions oonduc ive to good health will also be promot ed. At White Hall.

FIFTY YEARS OF MARRIED LIFE Mr aud Mrs. David K. Shelliart celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding at their home on Center street Monday. Mr. aud Mrs. Shel liart are auioug our best known and highly esteemed residents. They are both natives of thin immediate vicin ity and (heit fifty years of married life were spent in this city. Naturally much interest attached to their golden wedding, so that the function, viewed in every light, was a success—one en joyed alike by those who called to pay their respects aud the veueiable couple on whom the honors were bestowed. A pleasing episode in conuection with the golden wedding took place at the Mahouing Presbyterian church on Sunday afternoon. Mr. Shelliart has been a member of the Mahoning Pres byterian Suuday school for a period of fifty years For forty years lie has been either superintendent or assist ant superintendent of the Sunday school. In recognition of his long term of service it was decided by the teachers aud officers of the Suuday school on the fiftieth anniversary ot his married life to present him with a suitable gift. The present selected was in the form of a dozeu solid silver spoons The presentation took place immedi ately after Suuday school. The pre sentation speech was made by Howard B. Sliultz, superintendent, to which Mr. Shelliart very feelingly responded. I Monday the fiftieth wedding an niversary was celebrated by a family dinner. Between the hours of 3:30 and 10 p. m. au imformal reception was held aud a large number of persons called at the family* homestead. David R. Shelliart is a native of Montour couuty. His boyhood was spent on a farm in Cooper township He came to Danville fifty-seven years ago. For six years he was a clerk in Christian Lnubach's store,after which he weut into business as a merchant tailor, aud for a period of over fifty years he remained in business at the same stand ou Mill street, retiring about two years ago. Mrs. Shelliart, who before marriage was Miss Malinda DeMott, was boru near Jersevtown. She is a couple of years youuger than her husbaud, aud like him enjoys good health. That both have many friends was well at tested by the general interest shown in their fiftieth aunivorsary—by the deluge of congratulations aud well wishes for the future that were bestow ed upon them. "Iu 1897 I had a stomach diseasa. Some physiciaus said Dyspepsia, some Coußumption. Oue said I would not live uutil Spriug.

The April "Smart Set." i Beatrix Demarest Lloyd is the auth or of the novel which opens the April i Smart Set. Her story is entitled "The Miniature/' and she has never written a fiuer piece of work. The scenes are laid in Paris, aud the absorbing nar rative, which grips the reader's atten tion at the outset, moves aloug to a most unexpected and tiiilliug conclu sion. Of the youuger writers of today, noue is more promising than Miss Lloyd, and The Smart Set is to be con gratulated on publishing so notable a novel. John G. Neihardt contributes a piece of fiction entitled "Beyond the Spectrum," which,because of its pow er aud weird setting, deserves a place side by side with some of Edgar Allau Poe's short stories. Harriet Gaylord, in "Cousin Delice," tells a pathetic tale of a youug siuger who sacrifices her career,and learns too late how un necessary that sacrifice was. A power ful story is "Penalty" by a young English writer, Michael Storm ; Katli eriue Metcalf Roof writes a fanciful little story called "The Edge of the Wood," full of poetic charm; Arthur Stanley Wheeler is at his best in a love story, "ludiau Summer." Other ficticji is from Mrs. Lutlwr Harris, Mary L. Peudered, Mary Glascock, R. i K. Weekes and Mazo de la Roche, iu his most delightful vein. Bliss Car man writes au essay called "The Music of Life," which contaius many quot able passages. The poetry is varied aud excellent, aud comes from such verse-makers as Ethel M. Kelley, Elsa Barker. Edwiu L. Sabin, Arthur Stringer, Gertrude H. McGiffert aud Charlotte Becker.

B. & B. railroad crossing at Shaffer's bridge was the scene of a serious accident Saturday morning at 11 o'clock, when a farm wagon. in which rode Freese Kistler and Alfred Crawford, of Cambra, was run down by a fast moving freight train, wagon practically demolished, ami both men flung down the embankment, breaking both of Kistler's legs. The men were on theii way from Mordausville to Bloomsburg in a cov ered farm wagon drawn by Kistler's team of horses. The train was on its way to Berwick, and owiug to the curve at that point, tho men did not see or hear the train; neither did the trainmen see the wagon uutil the horses were ou the track, aud the fast approaching train was only a few yards distant. Tho engine struck the wagon near the rear wheel and flung the body of the vehicle up onto the fence posts along the track, the rear wheels and axle being sent whirling down into the ditch, aud both men were flung down the teu-foot bank oi the Fishing creek. Crawford escaped with apparently uo injuries beside a bad shaking up, aud picked himself up uuassisted. Kistler, however, was badly hurt Both legs were brokeu just above the ankle, botlt bones in ea<;h leg being fractur ed. William McMahou, who lives near the bridge, came running to the scene aud the traiu was brought to a stop as soon as possible. Kistler was carried up outo the road, and placed in Mc- Mahon's wagon and driveu back to his home iu Cambra. Physicians declared his to be one of the worst kinds of fractures,aud as both limbs were brok eu,it is liable to incapacitate Mr. Kist ler for future farm work, or for auy oocupatiou which requires a great deal of staudiug on the feet The in jury is a very painful one. Besides the fracture of the legs, internal in juries are also feared, and seveial bruises were fonnd about the body. The greater part of the farm wagou which was struck by the train was left a mass of wreckage. The team of horses, however, were the least con cerned of all over the accident, and jvere not even scared when the traiu struck the wagon and knocked it from behind them. They patieutly stood in the roadway until driven over the Mc- Mahou farm. Injured at Exchange. A thrilling accideut occurred at the planing mill of W. H. Dildiue at Ex cliauge Mouday afternoon, when John W. Ritter, an employe at the plant, was caught in a belt, thrown into the manhicery, aud his right arm torn loose at the shoulder, the upper end of the big bone being forced through the flesh. Mr. Ritter was carrying boards away from the plauer, when his coat caught in one of tho smaller bolts, throwing him toward the big main shaft. Iu falling his right arm struck the big belt that ruus the plauer, which oper ates at a very high speed. Ii? a twinkling the man's arm was securely caught between the belt aud the pulley wheel, ana as tho machin ery coutinued to revolve, his arm was wouud around the shaft,aud that mem | ber toru loose from the shoulder. W. H. Dildiue, proprietor of the mill, by his presence of mind prevent ed a horrible catastrophe from occur ring. He quickly reversed the engine ■ and threw off the big bf»lt, stopping the machinery. But quick as he was, he was not au instant too soou to save ' Mr. Ritter's life. When lifted from his perilous posi i tiou, Mr. Ritter was nearly unconsc ious. He was taken to his home in Ex - change, aud Dr. Muffly, of Turbot vilie was called. An examination showod that tho big bone of the upper arm had been entirely torn looso at the shoulder joiut, every ligament be ing severed. Iu addition to this the upper end of the bone had been pulled i over into the man's chest, where it protruded for seven inches through a rent in the flesh 6 inches long. The physician last evening was con fident chat the injury will ultimately mend, but it will be at least two mouths before Mr. Ritter can again use his arm. iSloped With Italian. Mrs, Gabriel Weurick, of Northum berland, wife of the D. L. & W. rouud house foreman, has eloped with au Italiau laborer, who was employed ou the Pennsylvania railroad in that town. Ou Saturday night she weut to Suu bury with the Italiau, as was especi ally noticed by the motormau and con ductor of the street car.and since then no trace has been found of either of them. Mr. and Mrs. Weurick have been married but little over a year. He has passed the half century mark, while she lis not yet reached twenty. His first wife died about six years ago af ter doing her share towards the prop agation of species by bringiug four teen children iuto the world. He mourned the loss of his helpmate for about five yearn, and then began to look arouud for auother to fill her place. On a farm bordering the borough limits of Northumberland, he found a couutry girl, beautiful, fascinating and unsophisticated. He won her love aud brought her to town as his wife. This was but little over a year ago Since that time great changes were wrought. Mrs. Weurick felt that she was imposed upou when forced to be come the stepmother of fourteen chil dren, several of whom were older than she was. Then, too, she met the Ital iau. He was ouly a laborer, to be sure, , working with a gang of his follcw couutrymeu keeping the Pennsylvania ' tracks in repair. But, ou the oth r ! hand he was very gallant, aud his black eyes and gay smile wou the heart of the young woman. Her in fatuation for him inoreased until she I finally consented to ruu away with < him. ( CHANGES IN SCHOOL LAWS Some radical changes in the school laws of the State will be urged daring the present session of the legislature by tho Pennsylvania State Educational society through its legislative commit tee, of which J. B Richey, superin tendent of the McKeesport public schools, is president At its recent meeting in Harrisburg the department of superintendence talked over needed laws, and the leg islation to be urgeil is at its sugges tion. The most revolutionary change de sired is the election of borough and city school directors at large, by tho vote of the whole people. The depart ment is of the opinion tllat a school board of five or seven members is bet ter than the large ones now necessary. Boston has such a board. Among the legislation to be urged are the following : The appropriation of $8,000,000 an nually for the support of the public sohools of the Commonwealth,and the additional sum of 1100,000 each, an nually, for township,borough and city high schools. The passage of the bill now pending for the appointment of a State high school inspector as a deputy of public instruction. A clause permitting children over twelve years of age to take employ ment upon all holidays and vacations, upon temporary certificates issued by the school authorities The following poiut9 in any bill en acted for the regulation of "child lab or" in this State : The minimum age for the employ ment of children in factories shoulu not be less than fourteen years. The evidence as to age should be corroborated by the affidavit of the parent or guardian. The number of hours per day for such labor should not exceed eight, or forty eight per week. The attendance officer should have the same legal access to mills and factories as the deputy factory in spector has The attendance officer, or any other citizen, should be empowered to be gin suit against an employer for vio lation of the law. No child under sixteen years of age may be employed unless said ohild can read, write and perform the funda mental operations of arithmetic. All certificates of employment should be issuod under the direction of the school authorities of the district in which the child resides.

A movement is on foot by one of the olergymen of Bellefonte to organize a young ladies club. The olub will in clude all young ladies working in the homes of Bellefonte, the factories, clerks, stenographers, girls of leisure and others. Departments will be nice ly furnished for reading, writing and games. It is said a danco hall will be iuclnded among the pleasures the ladies will be able to enjoy, where they can ask their gentlemen friends to come and " Waltz me a round again Willie." In commenting on this novel move, the Bellefonte News says:"lt is sin cerely hoped that the movement will pau out all right for in Bellefonte we have some girls who are seen con stantly on the street from morning un til night, and perhaps this institution will be the means of making them better women. "It is the first time anything of the kind has ever been attempted here and it is a question as to whether or not it will prove a success. Iu Bellefonte we have a dozen differeut classes of girls, and we admit that some are not as good as they should be and are talk ed about, run dowu aud shunned, but these same girls have souls to save as well as the higher class ones. Now when all these women get together in a social way in the club rooms aud are on friendly terms, will they still be kind and friendly when they meet on the streets and in public places? If so the club will be a success if not it will be a failure. " You should be very careful of your bowels when you have a cold.

Ie BROTHERHOOD ORGANIZED A Presbyterian Brotherhood was orgauized at the Grove church Friday night, and that influential congregation is uow on the list of churches that have fallen in with thismoderu move ment to-bring the great body of men, indifferent as to the oause of religion, into closer touch with devout and God fearing people, to interest theui iu the workiug and the affaiis of the church and finally through these ageucies to secure their conversion to God. The supper and the meeting held a month paved the way for organiza tion Friday. Since then there has been much enthusiasm amoug the rnon of the church relatiug to the subject of the brotherhood. It was known that there was an abundance of good mater ial on hand, men who were merely waiting for the privilege of enrolling their names. All that was necessary Friday night was the formal act of organization, which was performed by Rev. O. G. Morton, pastor of the First Presbyter ian church of Suubury, who is the brotherhood orgauizer of the North umberland Presbytery. A supper, furnished by the ladies of tho congregation, was served iu the annex at the rear of the chapel at 7 o'clock, at which were present the men who attended the previous meet iug aud who expected to join the brotherhood. The supper, as ou the previous oc casion, was abuudant, well prepared and well-served. Immediately after the meal, Rev. O. G Morton deliver ed au addrGss, which wa9 terse aud to the point.dealing with the subject of the brotherhood. Following is a syno psis of Rev. Morton's address, which had as its theme, "The Church aud the Brotherhood." "Men of the church as a class are falliug to the rear of the great hosts of God in both service aud benevol ence. This occurs largely because the meu are not organized „into associa tions as women are. To evangelize men, to pray and labor for their salva tion is the need of the hour, second to no other call in the sphere of Christian work. Men of the church have heard the call aud the brotherhood move ment is the result. This movement is the most import ant iu the work of the church. It means that the Master is moving the sons of God for a great purpose. It means the lining up of the splendid brawn of the Presbyterian division of the grand army of God. The brother hood has beeu compared to a piece of machinery that is to be added to the Presbyteriau church's workiug equip ment to do special work among men Iu the church there are the scattered parts of a machine that are powerless. They need au orgauizing force to gath er them up and make a complete throbbing machine Hero is a justifi cation of the brotherhood. Bring the meu into active coutact with the pow er of the church and connect them with the power. If a man comes into too close cou tact with commercialism he becomes sordid in money-getting. He needs coutact with au organized effort in the church to give him a balance be tweeu religion aud commercialism. There is a keen demand today that men may succeed in their daily avoca tions aud be honest at trie same time. The brotherhooi is not togo into politics, but its members will put Christianity iu all its affairs. The United States census shows th it the majority of adirtt males are not iu direct fKJinection with any Christian church. About twelve percent of adult males are connected with the Roman Catholic church ;twenty-four per cent with the several Protestaut churches, and sixty-two per cent make no per sonal profession of Christian faith. 1 The total Roman Catholio and Pro testaut male church membership is about 6,500.000. the total adult males being about 17,140,000. There are, therefore, in this country, about ten millions of men of full age who are uot in commuuicant membership of any church, and more than half of them never enter church. A portion of this great multitude of men who do uot attend churoli are in our own towns. It is our duty togo after them and bring them "into vital touch with the gospel. Statistics show that there are two females to every male in the Ameri can Protestaut churches. It is import ant to note that while the preaching aud official force is composed almost exclusively of men the unofficial ac tivities, missionary,-, sabbath school and pastoral, are largely carried ou by womeu. To leave meu to oue side, as lias been done in the past, is to lose au executive force, whose value is be yond any other'alike in quality aud quantity. The world's aggressive work has been aud is being done mainly by men and will so continue to be done as long as man is man Every sincere Christian in view of the situatiou, should hail with plea sure the organization of the brother hood. The formation of brotherhoods elsewhere has resulted in enlarged at tendance upou the Sabbath and week day services and a quickened spiritu ality. For the accomplishment of blessed spiritual results God invites the meu iu this land to co-operate with Him. Men are the divine instru ments for the salvation of men. Of that Christ is the abiding evidence aud how great the need of this re operation with our Lord! What the church needs today is the blood-earn estness of men engaged in the labor of saving their brothers." An appropriate address was also de livered by Rev. Dr. Hemingway, of Bloomsburg.

POLICEMEN'S PAY. | In regard to ttie salaries paid its po j licemeu the Wilkes-Barre Daily Reo- I ord says: "A Wilkes-Barre policeman | is compelled to work two years for SBO J a month. He is compelled to buy an ! outfit costing about a hundred dollars. At any time he may be called upon to | take his life in his hands. Only last j Saturday a South Main street patrol ! man risked his life in chasing armed Italians who were mixed up in the in ' discriminate shooting in which three i men were wounded. A salarj of S6O a I month is less than is paid the ordin aiy laborer in these times, when the i cost of living is so high. Is it right? It makes no difference what other I cities are paying. The question is, are the Wilkes-Barre policemen being justly dealt with?" - This is Worth Reraemberiog. Whenever you have a cough or cold, just remember that Foley s Honey and Tar will cure it.

Howe's Life orama to watch from comfortable seats the rolling ocean and the wild rushing and pitching of a huge, unwieldy harpooned whale. Under the title. "Whaling in the Atlantic," Mr. Howe offers in his new program one of the most remarkable moving pictures that have ever been secured since the in ception of animated photography. As the picture progresses the whaling ves sel is seen coming into view, and the crew busily makes fast the whale.now stiff and rigid, in tho tossing waters. At the whaling station are seen two whales—oue measuring 84 feet aud the other 78—with their enormous humps crowded with sea gulls. "Atlantic Whaling" fs of course, but one of the mauy other features equally interest ing in Mr. Howe's new program.
