A good crowd attended and appreciated the excellent work of Mrs. Sights in the title role. Mr. Sights is always good but his interpertation of the part of the stern old miller, father of the girl, was exceptionally good.

Friday night they play the old favbiute "East Lynne" and Sat urday they put on a matinee and in the evening the farce comedy entitled "Two Old Sports." At the evening preformance Satur day thfey will give a twenty six piGce set of Rogers Silver, on which chances have been given dut-ing the week. Alien's Answer Good. In the Chester county court, While the application of a certain alien for naturalization papers was being heard, his honor, Judge Hemphill, asked one of thd vouchers of the applicant if he was steady and industrious.

Texas Ranger The next, attraction at ...the Hope Opera House is to be the Western military melodrama, 'A Texas Ranger" which comes on Wednesday night Dec. 22. This is unlike most Western plays in that the "blood and thunder" is left out and it comes well recommended by the press of other cities where it has re cently been played. The scenes are laid along1 the Texas-Mexican border on a ranch and a frontier Military Post and the scenery and costuming is said to be a noteworthy feature. There are 14 acting people in the company and the cast, headed by Mr. Leroy Stanton as the Ranger is the same as played oyer the melodrama circuit of theatres in all the large cities the past seas' on. The company carries a cow boy band which plays a concert oh the street every day.

"Well, you see, mum, they've bin soakin' at the harbor bar," was the old. salt's reply. Horace Grefely said: "Tnat liquor Bhould be sold is bad enough, but for the sake of a paltry revenue the state Bhould become a partner of the liquor seller, is a bargain worse than that of Eve or Judas!" "The traffic in alcoholic liquors is a great wrong the most degrading and ruinous of human —William McKinley. pursuits." A law prohibiting the advertising of intoxicating liquors in any newspaper in Maine has just been declared con stitutional by the supreme court of that state. This is a good law and ought to be on the statute books of every state, but it isn't however the best magazines and papers are cutting out the advertising of the whiskey business. If you control the reading matter that comes into your house, cut out every daily or weekly paper and every magazine that flouts a liquor notice. This would at least show your opinion of editors who talk reform in some of their columns and sell the rest of their space to spread damnation. The saloon business is a disreput able business, and it stands cheek by jowl with the brothel, the gambling den and the low dives frequented by the criminal classes.

Such a rotation is the following: Wheat, wheat,corn, oats and pease. This rotation is lacking in that it has no provision for clover, but the pease answer in a large degree the same function in so far as the gathering of nitrogen for the soil is concerned, and the oat-pea hay is reckoned one of the best possible feeds for the production of'milk. This crop is sown at the rate of about one bushel of oats to the acre, to-gether with one bushel and one-half of field pease. The latter are rather expensive on the start, but once you have your seed the cost is not felt. Average returns from the demonstration farms of this state show 33001bs. as the average crop this season. In this rotation there is plenty of cash crop, and the corn can be turned into a cash producing crop equal to or oftener better than wheat by feed ing it in the late fall and early winter. If silage is made of the corn crop it simplifies the matter very much, but where there is no chance for ensilage t)ie fodder core makes excellent feed. In this rotation the manure goes on the land before the ground is plowed for corn. The corn is checkrowed both ways, and thoroughly cultivated plowing runs from five to seven inches deep, and there is no bare fallow. —Ex. The switchmen's strike, that is the topic of engrossing interest through the northwest which is especially af fected, may be settled shortly and it may be but the beginning of general differences between railroads and railroad employes. Every few years there must of necessity come a read justment in railroad circles. The ideal way of settling differences is by arbitration of a board of unbiased men, learned in the matters in con troversy and having no bias for or against either side to it. But it is not always easy to get both sides to Consent to the verdict of arbitrators, although the present instance the rail road managers were willing to sub mit the matters in dispute to arbitra tion. As a consequence, the general public which depends upon the ser vices of the railroads, suffers most of a'nybody. And so many factories and employers of labor are dependent up on freight supplies ond freight ship ments that the result of the haudicap to the railroads' may mean general Unemployment in the middle of winter #hen it is least to be afforded.—Bis marck Tiibuner.
