THE NEW SCHOOL- CODE. Home of the) principal changes which will be made in the law if the new school code is adopted, may bs summarized aa follows, in so far, as it will affect school boards of the fourth class districts, thorn having a popo lation lesa than 5000. There will he five directora whose terms of office will be six years. Boarda will levy tbeir own taxes and will have the aim powers as to borrowing, which which is 2 per cent of the assewed valoe of the district hy vote of tbe board and S per cent by vott of the people. An occupation tax of at least one dollar from each male resident over 21 yearn, must be collected from the employer. At present there are about 125 in dependent school districts and these will all be abolished, but may be re established as districts of the fourth class by application to the courts. Text bunks v ill be purchased si at present except that books may no' not be changed of tener than once in fire years. The Superintendent of Public In struction, with the approval of in State Boitrd, will formulate a pre scribed minimum course of study for eioh of the different kinds of public schools in the state. Coder the new bill teachers ca-i teach for only five years on provi sional certificates, and professions 1 aertificates require an examination in two higher branches and a carefnl reading of two bocks on education and are good for three years. No child can be excused from school until he is sixteen years of ige, without a school certificate cer Hiving that he is fourteen years old and can read and write the English language correctly, which most be iiven only by the school authorities. Tbe bill requirei, that schools be desed on tbe 4th of July, Christmas, Saturdays and Sundays, but school boards may designate additional hol idays. WIDOW McGEE There's a tender light in your eye.

(P. L. 849) WALTER VETTERLEIN, Seoretary. T. N. CKOSS, PUao, Deo, Uf mo, Presjaeot, NOTES FROM SANDYSTON From tbe markings of the Weath er Bureau instruments it la pretty clear that winter ia here. On the 1 7th it was 10 above, 8th 1 above, 9tn 1 below, cm the 10th II below, and on Sunday morning 5 above. From tbe above it Indicates that tbe cold is here anyway. Tbe river at Van Aukero just above Dine mans Ferry, is frozen op and pen pie are walking the ice, and have for several days. The Western Branch of the teach ers of this County held tbeir Insti tute at Layton on Saturday last It is too bad that only hQ of the teach era were present, and yet one of the teachers said to me that "she be lieved teachers could and did learn more than they did at the County Institute." It is a crying sham that one of oar most respected aged citizens could starve were it not for kind hearted neighbors. This old man has a son commanding good wages, who spends every oent for rum. Canoct oar officials make the yonng man help bis poor old father? Years ago I can remember when the business of getting out white oak and hickory straps waa carried on extensively in this town. Today I believe there are only member of one family, the Utters, carrying on the business. The old wooden strap it being replaced by strap-iron and wire. Tbe Fish Club Hatchery have been turning out thousands of small trout in tbe headwaters of our mountains for some time past. It must be pretty cold for the little fel lows this weather. It is surprising to note what quan tities of bntterine is being sold in this valley. The high price asked by those having butter to sell, often times from 3 to 6 cents above city prices, has forced many to use what one of the N. Y. dailiea styles tbe "poor man's butter." The small boy and many larger boys are trying their hand at trap ping, lor skunks, and if a rabbit should accidentally get into that trap be is taken care of and no one the wiser. The patrons of the Layton Orange will hold their 3rd annual Oyster Supper and Dance In their commodi ous ball on Thursday evening Deo. 29th. It goes without saying that rnuaio and sapper will be first-class. If reports are trne, and I guess they are, a number of tbe patrons of tbe Seller creamery, at Bevana, have been fined, and other got off with a caution not to mix too moon aqua pura with their milk. New Tear Resolutions It won't be long before the New Year will he here and many of u will jake determinations to do and not to do certain things, but bow many of these resolutions will be kept after the New Year has once started In. It's ao easy now to lay tbe foundation. But to build upon ii and keep building until the structure is a suocess is what we should! do, il we want to keep the wolf from tbe door." Competition ia getting keen er and keener, and the other fellow will get the job if we don't watch out. There was a good article in tht Pkhxs of December Stb "How to Succeed, " which if adhered to should put people on the .right track. "Find the work yoa like beat and then do II with all your might ;" because it's mighty difficult to succeed iu a task that is distasteful to us. The "Devil'' will be with many ot as the Night Before Christmas and the night before tbe New Year ; bat dear reader, don't let him be iu your company ; cast Mm aside as an outfit companion, if not before) 1911, let that year see that you have dropped hitn once for all. Farmers' Institute. The Pike County Farmers' Innti tute will be held in Hemlock Grove cburoli at Greentown, Wednesday aud Thursday, Jan. 4th and 6th, i ion. The program Includes addresses ; by M. H. McCollutn, 8. Paul Wood 'man, J. T. Campbell, M. S. Bond and A. J, Simons. Miss Emily Wal ters will road a paper, aud Uraoe Gilner will recite and Frank Waltz will slug a solo.

BULL ASpi M Beenlar ttoe ml M1IIW4 Ld r. a a. at. aM lath. Am a. mm. . A. i aaia. An inscrutable Wisdom has removed from na oar brother Cornelias W, Bull, one of our elder members and tbe oldest surviving Past Master. He was one who nought the sab- stance of tbe principles of Frf Masonry and in the broader sense In his daily walk and conversation en deavored to exemplify the obliga tions of our ancient and Honorable Fraternity. His Ufa waa an example to tbe Craft worthy ot emulation and guide to the community in whion it waa wholly passed. Conscientious and jut in dealing with his fellow men, inflexible in his opinkioa of right and duty as the light was given him to see them, he bore himself before all men in a firm and steadfast determination to fall) perform his tasks with fidelity. He has answered the Grand Sum mons and appeared before the high est tribunal where bis deeds will be judged with righteous impartiality: let us hope he has beard tbe com mendation "Well Done" and has been bidden to enter. We his brethren mourn his loss and as we go ont to resume Our daily avocations let us be encouraged by tbe light shed npon ns by the life of our brother who has departed. We offer to his bereaved family our warmest sympathy and' condole with them in tbeir irreparable loss. A devoted husband and an affec tionate father has been taken away : a counsellor on whom they leaned with all confidence. We commend them to the care of our Heavenly Father who is able and willing to be a guide and comforter in the hour of tbeir sorrow and Who Joeth all things for thev greatest ood of his earthly children. J. H. Van Etteh, ) H. T. Bakeb, ( Com. J. C Westbbook Jr. At a special meeting of Tha Mil- ford Water Company, convened De cember 12th, A. D. 1910, to take action on ihe death of Cornelias W. Bull Esq., lately one of the Managers of the Company. IT WAS RESOLVED, that the Company has suffered a great loss by tbe death of Mr. Bull, he having been one of the earliest members of tbe Company, an original subscriber to the stock of the Company, and from its very inception one of those who have contributed to its success and brought tbe Company to its pros ant condition, beneficial alike to the publlo, as well tbe stockholders. RESOLVED, that we, the Board of Managers, appreciating tbe value of his good judgment and wise coun sel in the management of the affaire of tbe Company, deeply feel his pas sing from our midst, and express in this manner, aa best we may, onr sorrow and regret that be may no longer be with us, and RESOLVED, that we extend to his wife and family our most sincere sympathy, and RESOLVED, that a copy of these resolutions be presented to bia wife, and that same be published in the newspapers of the County. By order of the Board, CHARLES G. WOOD, Seoretary. In Memory of C. W. Bull A TaWlmoalKl t CantUu W. But, late a Kuubtr of th Board of Ui Indepondoat School VUtrict of Milford. We, his fellow directors, who have been associated with him in the re sponsible position be held, desire to bear testimony to hia zeal and fidel ity in tbe cause of education and bis interest in tbe welfare of youth. He served for several years and was thoroughly conversant with the duties ot the office. His uniform courtesy, his invaluable counsel, his excellent judgment were almost in dispensable aid ia the performance of our duties and tbe loss to us his col leagues will be keenly felt. The community also will suffer a great deprivation in the removal of one who manifested such seal In furthering the cause of education We therefore desire to place on rec ord this memorial of the high esteem with which we regarded our fellow director and so far as we may perpet uate hia memory by spreading it on th minutes of the board Da.

December 12, 1910 The Annual Election for Directors of this Bank will be held at tbe Banking house, Tuesday, January 10 1911, between the hours of 3 and S P. M. JOHN C. WARNER, 3t Cashier. NEWS FROM WASHINGTON The Pasadena, California girla re- i fuse to dance with the Japanese nav al officers; the ball ia railed off; the Japanese admiral u high dodgcjnn sails away, and all Japan resents tbe affront. The Pasadena girls wrre within their rights and they have the sympathy of California girls and the girls of tbe I'nited Rates. But what about this International Expo sitjoo for mhioh California and the Pacific coast is clamoring? The support of that Exposition, if held at San Francisco, must come from the-J Orient. We all know the attitude of San Francisco to the Orient. It very recently brought ns to the verge of war with Japan, and there are possi j bilitles of serious trouble in an Inter national Exposition held on the Pa cific slope. The proper place f an exposition to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal will be the Cap itol of the United States. New Or leans, San Francisco? "A plague on both your boufes!" The Secretary of War has just re turned from tiie Philippines by way of Asia and Europe, bringing the somewhat trite information that our Malayan acquisition from Spain is not St for self government. Well, what country ever waa fli? The real diflerence is that the Philippines are less fit, or least flt. It is a posi tive benediction to some countries like India, Egypt and the Philipp pines to be governed by an Anglo- Ssxou people. All children need guidance and control, and these peo pies are not only "half devil and half child," but "devil, ostrich and orphan child io one.' The President's message la the most voluminous ever printed, and is generally considered to be an impor tant and up to date document. Few readers will peruse it from end to end, and the epitomes furnished by ihe press are excellent as time savers. The President earnestly favors the fortification of the Panama Canal, and sorely if it Is worth digging, It is worth defending. Without forti fication it could be destroyed by a few pounds of dynamite in a single night To furtify the Canal is no challenge to the peaoe of the world. International interests demand its protection. The Secretary of Agriculture has now completed hia most optimistic of reports. The value of the Agricul tural products of the country in 1910 is estimated at $8,926,000,000, and Mr. Wilson says that at no time In the world's history has a country equalled this record. It la quite probable that those even who are nw past middle age may see an ag ricultural output equalling In value one trillion of dollars. The recommendation of the Beore tary of Agriculture to eliminate middle men and for cooperative or ganizations of farmers and coopera tive societies of consumers to get to go I her, shortening the distance be tween the farm and the dinner-table is well worthy of consideration. There is expectation that the re cently elected Congress will ba less under the hypnotism of the express companies and mors mindful of the popular demand f.r a parcels post than past Cougrees have been. The Presldeut In his message urges legis lation authorizing the Pout Offie De partment to transport packages in Ihe mails at reasonable raea with reasonable limitations as to bulk and weight. The present mailing condi tiona are must unreasonable, having teen dictated hy tbe express com panies to throw tbe cream of the carrying business iu their direction. The backwardness of our country ija tuts modern postal faoility is sbamelul, for the parcels post is ex tant even in such countries aa China, Japan, Africa, Australia, Asia Minor Turkey and Korea, to say nothing of European countries. Senator LaFollette is by odds the "independent Senator in the United States. Most Senators, when Invit ed to the White House for consulta tion, accept the honor as a command. Not ao Senator Fulletle. He wrote the President a little noto saying in substance, "I will, if consistent with my sense of duty, approve your ap ' pointinents to the Supreme Bench, ' but beware that your appointees ' have clean records or I'll oppose their ' confirmation by the Senate."
