We have made mistakes at times, both of omis sion and commission, for which we humbly ask pardon and then again there were other things which modesty prevents us from mentioning. Our mistakes have been called to our attention in many cases and we are also pleased to state that we have al so received words of cheer and praise that have in a measure offset the feelings caused by harsh criticism. Our path of thorns, as it were, has at times been brightened with a few roses. We have also received most substantial support and encour agement from many of the busi ness men of our city, altho we feel that there are some who have failed to take advantage of the opportunities offered by our advertising columns and as a re sult both have suffered a loss of business. Present conditions are ideal for deriving benefits from a well managed advertising campaign and we trust that those who have not been hearing the calls of "Opportunity" wil. a wale e.

Many of the sorrows of the author in this living present are quite as ac tive as 150 years ago when William Oldys lived and died in London. The "blue pencil" was as remorseless then though under some name now forgot ten. Oldys tells how ho wrote some valuable article of nearly two sheets and how the bookseller, "for sordid gain and to save a little expense print paper, got Mr. John Campbell to cross it and cramp it, and play the devil with it, till he squeezed it into less compass than a sheet." The book borrower of that time was the same neglectful person that many of know today, and Oldys sighs ov books he has lent which have nev been returned. He was a keen anti quary, delighting especially in musty manuscripts, and, half in temper and half in good humor, tells of "Old Coun selor Fane, who gave me a parcel manuscript and promised me others, which lie never gave me nor anything else besides a barrel of oysters." 1 er PLOW BY NIGHT ON FARM, Tractor Equipped With Searchlight Works Continuously For .Two Days. Lansdale, Pa.—Plowing at night by artificial light is an innovation on the farm of the Lansdale Mushroom com pany at Lansdale. The late spring made it necessary to devise some means to catch up in the work, and the plow Ing by night idea was hit upon. The plowing was done by a tractor engine equipped with an acetylene gas tank and powerful searchlight. Three shifts worked continuously for forty eight hours. Ten acres of land wer plowed in twenty-four hours. ANDERSON & SON DRA LINE General Draying Garden Plowing Household Goods Moved Without Injury or Risk Court Versus Committee Law Telephone us, No. 60, for prompt attention By ALAN HINSDALE One night John Arbuckle, while peacefully sleeping in his home, sur rounded by his family—a wife and sev eral little children—was awakened by a loud rap at his door. Going down stairs, he opened the door and by the light of a full moon saw a dozen men, each man covering him with a re volver. "What's become of your clerk, Tom Bowles?" asked the spokesman. "I don't know. He left me without a word as to where he was going or why." "That story won't go down with us. You were heard the day before he dis appeared to accuse him of robbing you." "I did not accuse him of any such thing. He was my bookkeeper, sales man .and general utility man. He bad so much to do that he got tlie books into a muddle. I was vexed and told him that he might as well have robbed me. As I said the two last words Cy Jenkins came into the store and heard them and saw me looking angrily at Tom. Afterward I apologized to Tom, and he seemed perfectly satisfied. The next day he disappeared." "Very plausible," replied the spokes man. "IIow do you account for blooil on a towel found in' Bowles' room?" "There's nothing in that. Bowles was cutting some meat for a customer and the knife struck his finger. He went to his room to stanch the blood." "John Arbuckle, your explanations are mighty thin. You were heard ac cusing Tom Bowles of having robbed you. The next day lie disappeared without a word of information as to where he was going. If you was in the eastern country where such cases as yourn drag along for months, you'd probably get a lawyer who would prove that you never saw Bowles. In this country we take things as they are there ain't no lawyers to throw dust in our eyes. Come along." Dray Line in Connection Telephone No. 56 By this time Mrs. Arbuckle and the children had come downstairs and despite their clinging to the husband and father he was hurried away. "I'll make you men pay for this," he said. "Every one of you." "You'll have to come back from kingdom come to do it," was the cold reply. They took their prisoner to a tree and were about to hang him when a man rode by and asked what was the charge against him. When told he said that about the time indicated he had met Bowles early one morning walking on a road leading southward. The informant couldn't remember the date, but he judged it was about a month before. The committee had started In to hang a murderer and did not relish be ing turned from their purpose, but several of their members insisted on an investigation of Bowles having been seen going southward and after a long dispute it was determined to put him in jail till this could be done. He was therefore lodged in a cell and the com mittee went home to bed. One would naturally suppose that these men who considered that justice rested on their shoulders would have taken the pains to Rend out in the di rection Bowles had been seen going to make Inquiries for hm. But while they made it their business to dispense justice and gloried that there were no lawyers in the territory to delay them in doing so, no one of them seemed to consider it his business to hunt up the missing man. A. week after they were bent on hanging Arbuckle they had so far cooled as to take very little interest in his case. However, Mrs. Arbuckle placed her children in the care of a friend and, without announcing her intention, started out to hunt for the missing victim. She spent a good deal of time in her quest without immediate re sult After being away from her little ones as long as she felt it practicable to leave them, she returned, bitterly E. J. MILLIGAN Dealer in Coal and Wood O E N O A O A Water Hauling disappolnteu. Time passed. There was no trace of Bowles, but the thoughts of the vigi lance committee had been turned into other channels and no movement was made to excute Arbuckle. Six months he remained in jail and would proba bly have remained till the crack of doom had not a court been organized to take the dispensation of justice out of the hands of a self constituted com mittee. When this occurred the prison er's case was lotted into, and since there was not sufficient evidence against him to warrant his trial he was discharged. A few days later Bowles, accom panied by a wife, turned up, happy in being a bridegroom. He. had been turned down by the bride, but she had relented and given him hope. He had gone for her, but being a modest man and fearing further disappointment had kept the reason for his going to himself. The day after Bowles' return Ar buckle availed himself of the newly established court to bring suit for dam ages for false imprisonment against every one of the committee. Most of them had some means, and Arbuckle curned everything he had into money to pay his lawyers. Arbuckle won his suit and received a round sum from each and all who were able to pay. Those who were not able to pay he kept in jail two days for every one he had spent there himself. Such was the ignominio.is end of the vigilance committee and the beginning of court law in western city. Tendency Is What Counts. Of course there can be no such thing as perfection in this vale of tears, but the man who turns his buck upon it on that account hasn't good common sense. The man who is low down and tending upward is nearer perfection than the man who is high up and tending down ward. Tendency is the profoundest fact in life—in religion, education, society, politics. When an astronomer sees a for the first itTae he will ascer tain its direction, even if lis peogwsss is only a minute or two, and will de scribe its course among the stars for weeks ahead. He simply studies the (endeney, and one can tell where a man will be ten years from now by the same sort of mathematics. That tendency may roach human perfection if it is started right and the direction maintained.—Ohio State Journal. An Early Ironclad. Many people imagine that the first armored ship was the "iron cased frig ate" Gloria, launched for the French navy In 1857, yet, according to the Pop ular Science Monthly, the Dutch built an armored vessel nearly 300 years ear lier. That was in 15S5, when Antwerp was besieged by the Spaniards. The Dutch took one of their biggest ships, cut her down and erected on the deck a battery with armored and sloping sides, within which they mounted eight of the heaviest guns the factories of the day could produce. The roof of the battery formed an armored breast work for men armed with crossbows and shotguns, and there were gratings in the roof to provide ventilation for the battery below. A contemporary picture of the Finis Belli, as she was called, bears a striking resemblance to the Merrlmac, which was designed and built on precisely the same principles. Sentenced to Attend Church. Gallon, O. Mayor Biehl recently sentenced Sylvester Shade, found guilty of stealing two dollars' worth of brass from a traction company, to three years in the workhouse and a fine of $50, but remitted the sentence if Shade keeps clean, sober and at tends church at least once a Sunday.
