“UNCLE” JOE CANNON
His Interesting Size-up of the
Present Democratic Admin
Old sturdy, honest and reliable
“Uncle” Joe Cannon, who needs no
introduction to anybody, is back in
Washington again, where he belongs.
His constituents have lived to see the
error they made when they retired
him, and to show it, they elected him
to Congress again last fall. They
have lived long enough to see through
the flimsy Roosevelt disguise and the
fallacy of Democratic promises, and
they want no more fake reform at the
hands of Democratic wind-jambers
and Roosevelt soreheads.
“Uncle” Joe Cannon is one of the
really big men of the country, and
what he has to say about men and
measures is always to the point and
eagerly read. Following is what he
had to say recently in Washington on
Democratic economy :
“I obserye that the administration
is laying big stress upon economy
with a big capital E. Secretary
McAdoo has cut the estimates to the
bone and Chairman Fitzgerald in
tends to scrape the bone, but the bone
will be a $1,000,000,000 bone just the
“The Democratic economy is like
that of the new clerk in the country
store who carefully watched the spig
ot, but carelessly knocked out the
plug from the bunghole.
“From the President down they are
all watching the spigot through which
is drawn off the money for the ordi
nary functions of government, and
they are shocked if a poor clerk wants
an increase in salary or a half holiday,
but when it comes to opening the
bunghole for the building of the gov
ernment-owned railroad in Alaska or
the purchase of old ships that are
mostly junk to create a government
merchant marine, they are like flies
around a sugar barrel.
“I have been watching Democratic
economy for a good many years, and
their economies are like those of my
old friend, Judge Holman, of Indiana,
who was called the watch-dog of the
Treasury, but who said that a good
watch-dog could always recognize the
voice of his master. The Democrats
in their economy recognize the voice
of the master who is exploiting gov
ernment owning. But, seriously, I
think the present administration has
passed the honeymoon stage, and for
the next two years it will have the
whole country taking a Missouri atti
tude and wanting to be shown.
“The President is mighty good at
composition writing, and his messages
are fine examples of literature. But
the people want results. There is an
old saying that ‘fine words butter no
parsnips.’ If they did, Mr. Bryan
would have had all the people smack
ing their lips over parsnips, and re
fusing roast beef years ago. He has
been preaching from the text, ‘be good
and you’ll be happy’ for nearly 20
years, but when he took charge of our
foreign relations he made the Ameri
can eagle look like a crow on the oth
er side of the Rio Graude.”
A Tribute to the Memory of One
of Grautsville’s Most Highly
The following tribute to the memory
of Miss Louisa Kurtz, one of the edi
tor’s teachers when a small boy at
Grantsville, Md., recently appeared in
the Meyersdale Republican. It is a
fitting tribute to one who labored long
and faithfully in the moral vineyard
at Grantsville, and the writer is one
who can look back over the dim years
of the past__and recall many noble
deeds accomplished by Miss Kurtz,
and he also bears testimony of the
many things taught to her pupils that
proved valuable to them in after life.
“Miss Louisa Kurtz, one of the
oldest and best known of Grantsville’s
ladies, passed away on Sunday morn
ing, December 6, at ten minutes past
ten after nearly two years of affliction.
Her death was due to Bright’s disease
and paralysis, having been stricken
in March a year and a half ago. Miss
Kurtz, despite her age, was up until
that time, always able to do her own
housework, besides attending to her
little store, and consequently her
affliction was all the harder to bear.
She was 75 years of age, having been
born near Salisbury, Somerset county,
Pa., September 16th, 1839. She was
for a number of years one of Garrett
county’s best school teachers, and for
many years made a home for her two
brothers, Leonard and Dennis. At the
age of 19, in 1858, she was confirmed
in the Reformed church, in whose fold
she was ever an active and loyal mem
ber. Besides her two brothers, a sis
ter, Mrs. M. C. Glotfelty, of Manly,
lowa, is bereaved, also Mrs. Harry
Ambell, of Pittsburgh, Pa., a niece
whom she reared as a daughter, and a
number of nephews and nieces in
Pittsburgh, Addison and other places.
Her funeral took place Tuesday morn
ing, Dec. Bth, in the Lutheran church,
the Reformed church not yet being
completed in repairs. Rev. Ira Monn,
of Salisbury, conducted the services,
which were largely attended by her
many friends and neighbors. Inter
ment was made in the old cemetery
lot which her loving hands had kept
smooth and clean. While possessed
of a few peculiarities, as most of us
are, Miss Lou, or ‘Aunt Lou,’ as she
was familiarly known, was a good
hearted neighbor, always dividing and
sharing her little garden and dairy
products with her less fortunate neigh
bors, who in turn did all in their pow
er to make her last days more easy.
Her brothers were untiring in their
attendance upon her, and uncomplain-
ingly shouldered the double burden of
caring for the sick and doing the
housework in addition to farm work.
And now at last she is at rest. Her
tired hands are folded upon her
breast. Her poor, bewildered brain,
where reason tottered until it finally
became dethroned, no longer needs
worry over the problems of her daily ,
life. She is in the hands of the great
Physician, and it is well with her soul.”

THE EUROPEAN WAR
IN BIBLE PROPHECY.
Undreamed of passions have burst forth,
devouring the lands that patient hands
have beautified and made fertile, and cen
turies have stocked with art treasures. To
the entire world the war has come as a
complete surprise because they have not
read our book (660 pages—cloth) telling
that just such conditions would exist, only
to be followed by the still greater devas
tation of anarchy. The first edition came
from the press in 1897.
Of vaster interest and importance is its
promise of better things in store for
earth, when the wrath of nations has
