Tho young pooplo bad a dance in tho Golf Club liouso. lost Friday even ing, somo thirty participating in tho enjoyment. Tho alarming doath rato by con sumption in tbo slate region of North ampton county is attracting attention. At least ninety per cent, of tbo recent death a in that section bavo been caused by tuberculosis. This fact is all tbo more surprising when it is considered that tho air and water are exceptional ly pure in these mountain town. From reports so far received from throughout tho Btato by tho departmen t of Agriculturo, unusually fioo crops of bay, wheat, corn and apples are expect ed to bo gathered in Pennsylvania this year. The Pennsylvania Educational As sociation mot at Btato Cjllcgo this year, the three days' sasiions closing to-dy. The attendance baa been unusually large, and a floo program was carried out.

It will probably bo an item of nows to most readers that postmasters are not compelled to make change when you mako purchases at Uncle Barn's ofllco. This ia a queer rule that not one in a thousand persons know. Buyers of stamps or any purchasers at a post ofllce must furuieh their own chaDge; that is, the postmaster could insist on tbo buyer furnishing his own change if be sees fit to do so; but usually tho postmaster is glad enough to got rid of his "chicken feed," and ho is always willing and ready to accommodate tbo public by making all tho cbsngo it asks for. If a man wishes to buy W) cents' worth of stamps and has but a silver dollar, be would bo compelled to buy a dollar's worth of stamps or go and get his silver dollar changed or do without the stamps it tho postmaster was stubborn and re fused to mako change for bim. This is the law and a queer ono, so many think And postmasters aro not compelled to take more than 25 pennies at one time if they do not wont them. At tho flvo o'clock Bright Boar Service, next Sunday aftcrnouu, Dr Wm. II. Bwift will speak upon the topic "What is this Community's Greatest Problem t" Ofllcor N. B.

Tae Unitod Stitoj Dapartmont of Agriculturo hai issued a pamphlet of warning objut tho White Pins Blight which has appoared in New England, and some of the Middle Btutes. It says that in Now York tho eastern part of tho State is affected, In Pennsylvania the law gives tho podestrian the right of way ovorthe automobile and if there is anything left of tbo pedestrian after tbo chauf feur gets through with bim, bo may as sort the right.

Itobbins, so called circus which exhibited hero on Baturday wm an unmitigated fake and fraud from tbo first poster placed on the bill-boards to the pulling of tbs last tent staice. Nothing, substantially, that was prom isod in tho advance announcements was done; and very tittle tbat was done at all was well done. Tbe showmen came hero with a fake story of a wreck which had destroyed much of their specialty apparatus : but later explained tbat tbo management had eont to headquarters about half of the show on account of bad business. Yot notwithstanding this confession of their crippled or inefficient condition, they had tbo nerve to charge tho hundreds of pooplo who had been allured bv their Ivine statements to tramp through the mile of dust ro Free thy's flats, just double thi almittanoe foe demanded in all other towns. In stead of ten and twonty-flvo eontu for tickets as elsewhere, here tbey were twenty-five nnl Ufty; insteod of ten cents for reserved seats, tho cnargo was twenty-fire, and tho commonest palm leaf fans were sold for ten cents. There was no apology even, for an elophant. and tho few moth-eaten beasts tbat were put on exhibition were so forlorn in ap psaranco at to excite pity or dorieion rather than interest. Tho di'gusttng antics of four or five degraded monkeys wero better adapted for exhibition in a tenderloin jungle than a civilized com munity, and their noar relatives tbe tbreo alleged clowns, instead of provok ing laughter, drovo most of their audi onco into a settled rx-!ancho!ia. Tho three cowboys, hoaded by "Nebraska Bill," wero so ludicrously bad as to bo almost good It wni certainly amus ing to witness Bill's frantic attempts to jump through tho loop of his lariat, ro reiving a whack ncrois tha face at cv cry trial. As for turning the running horses, it is doubtful if he could have roped one if It were walking; and whon t came to picking up the scattered rg from tbe ground, while the bioncbos were in motion, the rulo seemed to be to miss twelve out of ovrry dr reo. In fact f thero ever was n rank counterfeit bill was ''Nebraska Bill." Such of the sidysbows ai were not made up of tooth-le-H snakes, fakirs mid gambler, were composed of gumblsrs, fakirs and tooth less snakes; but in lieu of the usual canal woter and lemon peel generally served as lemonade at only five cents u glass, en) could got river water and shavings for tho same price. The only redeeming feature of tbo whole falui wes tbe mcnago act of an old timer. ho handled her handsome horse and wbito doves very acceptably, but who looked so decidedly out of place as to suggest tbo old story of "Good Dog Tray Caught in Bad Company. Tho weather under the tents was simply stilling, and it was small wonder tbat when finally released from tbo fiery furnace, tbo on- tire crowd bunched their criticism of tbo show into tho ono cxprcesivo word. 'Stung I" Tho Unitod States in 19(17 produced 19 10(1 012 short tons of coal valued at t-0U,K:U,MD. Great Britain's production Of coal in 1908 was 299,9C9,Ct!9 short tons, and Great Britain is tbo second coal producing country in tbo world. Tbe ci.il production of tho United States in 1907 exceeded by ISO 4S0 373 short tons. or more than CO per cent., tbat of tho British Isles. It was moro tban doublo that of Germany, and was equal to 40 per cont. of tbo total coal productiou of tbe world. on. Charles B.

Ouly one other State makes a better show- ng in tbo valuo of garden products. Philadelphia county enjoys the rcputa tution of being tbo second county in the United States in tho average valuo of garden produco psrucro, and Allegheny county ranks fifth. As tho season of thunderstorms is on us, attontion is called to somo pop ular orrors as to tbo danger from light ning. A widespread belief is that dur ing a thunderstorm safety may bo found undor a beoch troo, and tbat tho danger from lightning is 15 timos as great undor a resinous treo and SO times as groat uuder an oak. Careful obser vatiou Bbows that this viow is entirely without foundation. Tbo beoch is not avoidod by lightning which solocts one species as readily as another, but tbo tullor trees in tho neighborhood appoar to be tbo ones liablo to bo struck. Tho effects of lightning aro also commonly misundorstogd. Too cells of a t rco aro not ruptured or torn by tba formation of steam, as is often statod, but tbey collapse, or shrink up, without tearing. Tbe roots seem to escapo damage. Orders have b-jen issued from Wash ington for repainting of all the letter boxes throughout the country a bright rod. First grey was tried, then green, and now tbe department decides that these colors are not conspicuous enough to attract attention of those looking for them on tbo street. Eight young men were ordainod to tbe priesthood in Bt. Potor'd Cathedral, Scranton, by Ut. Itov. Bishop M.J. uo ban in tho prcsanco of a largo number of rulatives and friends, un Friday morning last.
