THE STTBEST BO AD TO WEALTH IS THBOUG-H LIBEEAL ADVERTISING ' i i i ' 1 . - iW CONVENTION CALL. rh the TlentLhlttvtn Kteetnrs at Pennsvtvuilta.- J After consultation and correspondence with '' the members of the Republican State Committee, and by their direction, I hereby give notice that the Republicans of l'ennsytvania, by their duly chosen representatives, will meet in mate Con vention at llarrisburg, Wednesday, August 19, 1891, at 10 o'clock A, if,, for the purpose ofplac ing in nomination candidates for the offices of State Treisurer and Auditor General, for the nomination of eighteen candidates for Delegates-at-Large to the Constitutional Convention pro vided for in the Act of Assembly approved June 19, 1891, and for the transaction of such otlier business as may be presented, Police is especially directed to the fact that, in accordance with the provisions of the last men tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to a representation of three delegates in said Con stitutional Convention, two of whom only can be members of the majority parly in said district. The electors of each district are therefore re quested to make proper nominations for dele gates to said convention, the rules governing the nomination of candidates for S.ate Senator to be applicable. In this connection the Chairman desires to call the attention of Republican voters, to the recom mendation of the State Convention of 1832, that "they allow the greatest freedom in the general participation in the primaries consistent with the preservation of the party organization," WM, IT. ANDREWS, Chairman. 1876 the Republicans cnrrl-id four counties In Maryland; in 18S9 tuey car ried eight; In 1884 they carried nine; In 18SS they carried twelve. This shows their progress towards victory. In 1892 they should carry the state. It is announced that ex-I'resldent Cleveland will make six speeches in the Ohio campaign. The Baltimore American thinks that If he does, it will be worth the price of u circus tick et to see bim walk arouud that free silver plank In the Deinocratio plat form. It begins to look as though ' in this age of progress wo are likoly to have the laws of nature reversed, and the rains, the heat and the co'.d regulated by human devices. Tho government has sent au agent to Texas for lie pur pose of ascertaining the possibility of having rainfall at command, and now ponies another project from Knusaa City, by which the temperature of our houses can be regulated from 70 to zero. It may be that these Inventions may prove successful, and that the wisdom of the creator may be thought to be unwisdom.

But after all, It may he found that the proposed regulations ofllie temperaluro and the measure of the rainfall, if successful, may not p'-ove blessings. However that may be, it will do no harm (o try them. It has been generally supposed that the Hebrew associations of Now York organized for the purpose of affording assistance to Russlivu emigrants ex patriated from their homos by the Czar would he able to meet most of ttio existing contingencies, but It seems that they are already encounter ing serious difficulties, and that oven the aid of tue Hirsch fund prevents them from carrying out thelrgeuerous purpose. With the usual liberality (and chatlty of tho lace, however, we believe that before this gie.it problem has been solved, means will be sup plied for the relief of the poor people who have been so suddenly thrown upon tho bounties of the world. TttuiiY our country is becoming au asylum of the poor, the lame, the halt, the blind, the pauper and the crim inal, as least such seems to be the Idea outertalned of it by Europeans, If we ae to judge by tho character of many of the Immigrants sent Ibkber. The latest demonstration is the announce mcnt that arrangements are being made to have brought to the Uulied States the persecuted Hebrews of IJus sla. A number totally destitute of means have already arrived and have been detained by the Now Yoik authorities.

Mr. Editor: Having read tho articlo In this evening's Issue of your papor, in re gard tojjio W. C. T. IT., tho thought camo to mo, that if those persons, who condomn tho work of the W. O. T. U., know moro about tho work that has and is being bc complished, they would not be so severe in thoir criticisms. Our timo, enerelos and money are not spent alone in trying to re form thoso whq aro tho slaves of strong drink, but our work, Stato and National, is divided Into thirty-throe departments with an active and efficient superintendent in charge of each. No ono Local adopts ail thoso, but each selects those departments which thoy think best adopted to tho local ity in which tho Union exists. Thoso de partments come undor six different head?, namely: Organization, Preventative, Edu cational, Evangolistic, Social and Legal, It Is very evident that our organization is sot lookod upon in othor places with the disfavor it is in this rum-cursod county, or it nevor would havo roached tho vast num bers it has in the sixteen years of its exist ence, thoro boing in the United Statos membership of 113,971. In Pennsylvania wo have n membership of over 15,000. Nor Is our work confined to this side of the water, as will be seen from tho following takon from tho roport of our missionary, Mary O. Lcavitt, who has encircled tho globe with tho white ribbon, "In her oight years' absenco sho held ovor 1,000 meetings in China, Japan, In dia, Northern and Southern Egypt,Au8lra lia and tho Hawaiian Islands, talking in 17 different languages. To do this sho em ployed 231 interpreters.!' Sbo not only organized unions in these places, but a'to introduced scientific tem perance instruction in tho schools and secured the regular study of temporance literaturosuoli as recent laws havo Intro duced into the curriculum of tbe public schools in our own state. At a convention of teachora, held In Copenhagen at which was gathered all the leading teachers of Scandinavia, Mrs. Lcavitt was one of the principal speakers. Tbe outoomo of her address being the tub sequent passago of laws compulsory in tho schools throughout Scandinavia, including Denmark, owoden, 1' inland und Norway. Tbero is no way Ip which humanity can bo benefitted but what there Is a depart ment roaching out to holp along. Wero one to try to do horo for orring girls und Mien women what has been done in Wilkes- Barro and other places, wo would bo dubbed busybodios and rcqueslod to stay at home and koop our houses clean, as wo wore lu former times wbon efforts wore niado to protest our boys and girls from temptation and a lowering of their morals, for when the sacred n ess oj God's day is disrospocted tho road to ruin Is very oasy, The indifl'eronce of mothers on this subject l greatly to bo regretted. They stand aloof and then whon their boys and girls fall prey to temptation find fault with the W- O T. V. for not do'ng more. But re gardless of croakers and fault finders, we shall still wage our peaceful war for God, Home and Native Land, Mkmbbr W. O. T. U. Shenandoah, July 28, 1891 TALENTED MUSICAL AttTIST. A. Simpson Sllohter, of York. Without a Poor In Hla Lino. In York city thoro reside many peoplo of musical talent, but there doubtloss is nono in tho state who is capable of manipulating so gracefully so many different musical instruments as A. Simpson Sllohter, of thHt pi a co. Ho plays thirteen different musical instruments and is mnstor of them all. His favorito Is a small harmonica, and when in his hands it becomes an instrument of great interest, producing tho finest muslo and most beautiful sounds. With it ho can porfectly Iraitato bras3 binds, bagpipes, concertina, mocking birds, cat calls, crying babies, railway trains and various othor sounds. "Sim," as ho is popularly culiod, is also without few equals when it comes to manipulating a guitar. Ho onco performed tho feat of playing tlx mouth organs nt one time. IIo was born in Schuylkill county July 8, 180-5, Is a nophow of Q.n. J. K. Sliifriod, of Pottsvillo, and began his pro fession at tho nfte ofsix-yoars. Ho has challenged Dash William, of Sunbury, to play on tho harmonica or guitar for 500 a ido. Tho contest will probably take place n Sbonandoah, as soon as arrangements can be completed. POLITICAL POINTS. Four of ShenandoaU's Democratic citi- zens aro seeking the olUco of Sheriff. Our local politicians, especially thoso in the Damocratic ranks, are very activo now.

Urojsang, of Pottsvillo, who has boon "knocked out" so frequently, is tho lattst aspirant for tho Kepublican nomina tion for Sheriff. Tho big head is seizing upon some vory small fry politicians in Pottsvillo, and tho Shenandoah postofilce guido Is issuing froo copies to advertise them. Kepublican. No bettor oyideuco of Judge Oroon's popularity, fltnoss and ability is wanted than tho attacks mido upon him by tbe Chronicle. It will not help tho Demo cratic n9 pi rants ono whit. Our Polish citizons want a enure, of the spoils this your. Sinco thoy are to furnish from COO to 1,000 votes thoy seem to think thoj aro entitled to snmo recognition from tho Democratic party to which they mostly belong. The Democrats intend to mako it a rule that no ofllco holder, excopt Judgo and Congressman, will bo eligible for n socond term, This rule will suit tho "outs" very woll; but wait until they get "in" thon It won't soom to bo the fair thing aftor all. For delegate to the Constitutional Con vinlion from thn upper district, tho namo of Joseph II.
