Great preparations are belntf mado
for the encampment at Washington
noxt month. On the occasions of the
grand review at the close of the war,a
body of volunteer tnxips muivhed alonjr
historic Pennsylvania avenue, Washlnif
ton, D. C, the like of which the people
of the capltol never expected to eAs
atfain. In SepttfmW.motv than twenty
five years after that vl prions host
lai wieu the broad thorouKMare.another
great body of sold tern will inarch along
It, repi-esentinfr the servhors of all tho
Union forces. It Is expected that
50,000 G. A. R. men will participate In
the re-union. Something like one hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars will bo
expended In entertaining the old soldiers
and others who will take advantage of
the opportunity afforded by the encamp
ment to visit the capitol. Nothing will
be left undone to make Washington
appear in Its most attractive form.
The miners of the Clearfield district,
which represents three thousand men,
declare they will strike on September
1st unless an advance Is made In tho
price of low grade coal mining and a
change mado in the checkwelghman
system. A resolution was adopted
calling on tho men In Punxustawney
district, which adjoins the Clearfield
district, to stand firm for demands of
the same character, which they have
presented to the operators. In Funx
utawney district alone there are over
throe thousand men. It is claimed that
the men in both districts have submitted
a number of grievances and will go out
as one man, as they are thoroughly
organized and pledged to act In unison.
The Borwind White Company, which
will be principally affected, is known to
have an order to supply tho Now York
Cental railroad with 2,500,000 tons of
coal within a specified time and leads
the minors to think they will have an
easy victory, while the company
declares it will hold out against any
advances or change.
Character, one of tho grandest things
tae human family is heir to, Is something
we all must havo, none can avoid It.
There is a world's wide difference
between a good character and a bad one.
They are just what we make thorn.
What Is more sublime than a beautiful
ripe character. A ripe character is
known first by Its beauty. Hipo fruit
has Its own perfect beauty. As the
fruit ripens, the sun tints it with sur
passing loveliness, and the colors deepen
till the beauty of the fruit Is equal to the
beauty of the blossom, and in some
respects superior. So a pure ripe
character Is known by Its beauty.
Another mark of ripeness is sweetness.
The unripe fruit Is sour, and perhaps
it ought to be, or else we would eat all
the fruit while they are yet green. So
Is an unripe character very sour. Ofton
times the worm of an unbridled appetite
naughs at the core until the character
drops from the mother stem before it
ripens, or perhaps It will decay from
the effects of unoontrollublo passions
before It is ripe. Beauty, sweetness
anri tenderness, are sure marks of a
ripe character.
The ghost which question whether
woman will not lose her womanly
qualities In the process of higher
education will not down, writes Mrs.
Lyman Abbott In the August LudM
Home Journal. It appears not only In
the quiet and the shade of midnight,
when ghosts have a right to appear, but
it stalks abroad in open daylight. The
innocent have always borne the penalty
, Of the guilty, and the clamorous women
who parade on public, platforms, and
who make themselves obnoxious In
publio conveyances, who give their
families peace at home by going abroad
wrrttrVhelr debates, these are they who
throw dncredit on their innocent Bisier.
I wish I might picture the homes in
which I am so happy as to bo a welcome
guest, where highest education for man
and for woman comblnd to make high'
est happiness and highest usefulness
Woman may dwarf hor best powers by
cultivating only her emotions, she may
do it by cultivating only hor body, and,
of course, she may do it by cultivating
only her mind; but that is not higher
education and wherever a young woman
has found a place whore she may obtuln
knowledge and also the other fruits
' whioh a perfected character should
bear, she oannoot be hurt by that
I've Changed My Mind.
It Is easy to resolve to do a thing, but
when the resolution requires action Is
the time that trys one. A temptation,
which has come before, Is pi-esented.
Good resolutions have been made only
to bo broken Into smithereens when the
temptation comes. One of the easy
resolutions to fracture Is that of Brining
early in tho morning. "Yes, I nm
going to get up early to-morrow morn
ing," has been reiniated time nnd tlmo
again, but how easily put olT until some
other morning. The following Is an
illustration of how easy a gtxxl resolu
tion Is broken:
'I'm goin' to be a soldier, ma, when
I grow u)," said Bobby, as ho crawled
Into bed, "and fight in wars and battles."
"All right, Bobby; now go to sloe)."
In the morning she sluxik him for
the fourth time nnd said:
"Bobby, you must get tip; tho Idea of
a soldier lying In bed at this hour!"
"Well, ma," said Bobby, "I've changed
my mind alxmt being a soldier."
Just so it Is with many older people.
They huvo a task to perform nnd It is
given up Ix'cause at that hour in the
morning when they should get out of
Ix'd they have "changed their mind."
Those women who devote the least
time to the study of the Important
question "how to manage a husband"
are the most successful In that line.
Woman who want to manage their
husbands, and men who are ambitious
to manage their wives ought all to lxs
sent to a lunatic asylum nt once to save
further trouble. l'nnxsutawney Npirit.
What is News?
Under the heading of "what Is news"
In AcirojKx nlom for July, Bill Nye says:
'News is fresh Information of some
thing that has recently taken place;
nnd yet there Is a kind of news that is
not news, aside from names and dates.
For instance: Henry Stanley Panirborn
blew down the barivl of an old musket
yesterday, to see if It was loaded. As
the old nre-nrm blew iwck, and new-laid
thoughts of Henry's were found spat
tered on tho celling, he no doubt
apiwased his morbid curiosity. This
sort of accident has been recorded so
often now that it is hardly nows.cxeept
Ing as to nnmes."
Two Youthful Horse Thieves.
A special from New Bethlehem to
the DoBols Cnnrirr Saturday says:
"Thomas and James Ness, of Oak
Bidgo. were arrested at Corsica last
evening for stealing a horse and buggy.
Tho culprits are mora lads, aged l.'i and
11 years, and committed the crime last
Sunday evening during church services
at West Millvlllo. W.A.Shelly.of Sugar
Grove, was attending church and whilo
inside of tho bullldiug the boys drove
away with tho horse and buggy. They
are now in Clarion jail. About two
years ago the sumo boys stole a horse and
buggy and when their pursuers came
close upon thorn they abandoned tho rig
ana iook to tno wtxxls. Tney were
afterwards captured and released on
acount of their ages, but for this lost
offence they will bo punished to full
extent of the law.
Want a Street Railway.
IPiuiXHiitnwni'y Hplrlt.l
Some of tho leading business men of
Keynoldsvillo ai-o seriously contemplat
ing the construction of an electric tit rout
railroad. They are now investigating
tho matter and if it should apx.ar to
thorn to bo a paying Investment the
road will bo built. A road from Ruth
mel to the railroad doM)t is tho thing
contemplated. If an olectrto street
railroad is a gotx thing for UuBols and
Punxsutawnoy, we seo no reason why It
should not be a good thing for Hoyn

whole matter.
W. C. T. U. Booming Suffrage.
Mrs. Lizzie Hill Mills, president of the
Orange county (Cal.) W. C. T. U., writes:
"We are 'booming suffrage. Our local
W. C. T. U. meets every week, and has
given this last month entirely to suffrage
and will give the coming one to the
same topic. We are taking up the
United States constitution and state
laws. We send out written invitations
to those who are not members of the
union, and people are getting aroused
and enthusiastic."

Whoever heard of killing a horse or
an ox as the first tep to be taken toward
putting out a prairie fire? What dweller
in the Dakotas has not heard of it? For
it is frequently done by the settlers of
Hie new northwest, where prnirie fires
are a greatly dreaded mennce to life and
Every dweller of the great northwest
Is more or less familiar with prairie fires.
They have often at nightfall seen their
lurid lights in the distant horizon, or by
day their huge volumes of smoke rising
and bending with the clouds, and many
are even familiar with the consuming
march of the flames themselves. Prob
ably the first intimation the settler re
ceives of an approaching lire comes from
the falling of burned particles of grass
that have been carried long distances by
strong air currents.
Later on smoke may be seen on the
distant horizon, which increases in vol
ume and blackness nntil tho whole sky
may be darkened, or if the night be
coming on the flames will light np the
whole landscape and their glow will lie
reflected above. The wise Dakotan has
his farm or ranch protected by fire
breaks. These are usually made by
plowing two strips a few furrows wide
and several rods apart and burning the
grass between.
There is but little likelihood of put
ting out a Dakota prairie fire during the
day, as the wind, which is almost in
variably blowing, and which the fire
seems to greatly increase In force, never
lulls nntil the coming of night. Then,
though there is no dewfall in that re
gion, the fire burns less fiercely and may
be at times entirely extinguished. The
most successful method of putting out
a fire, and one frequently employed, ii
to kill a horse or cow and, splitting the
carenss, drag it along the fire line and
over the flames, which are thus ex
tinguished. This is done by attaching long wire
ropes to two limbs of the carcass, to
each of which is hitched a horse, on
which is an experienced rider. One of
these horsemen rides on either side of
the line of fire, and by skillful reining
they draw the body of the dead animal
directly over the flames. Sometimes a
fresh hide, weighted down with pieces
of iron fastened to it, is used instead of
the carcass of an animal. By this method
a line of fire twenty miles in length may
be extinguished in one night. Men on
foot usually follow after the horsemen
and put out any fire that may remain
after they have passed.
The scene presented by such a com
pany of fire fighters is extremely weird
and one which a beholder is not likely
to forget. Fortunate it is if those in
terested complete their work before the
coming of dawn, for if they do not the
rising of the wind may send the fire
leaping over the area of country they
have labored to save, and blackened
plains and smoldering heaps that mark
the sites of former ranches and home
steads will tell the oft told story of the
Dakota prairie fire. Chicago Herald.
