A man from tlie backwoods of west

first time and went Into a restaurant
to have dinner. All went well until
the waiter brought him a napkin. The

Edgeworth is a likable smoke. Men
who have tried it and found it to be

They'll tell you there are many good

Pennsylvania Roadhouse That Stood
Squarely Between the British
and American Armies.
The advent of national prohibition
sounded the death knell for many
roadhouses scattered throughout the
country districts. The stopping places
of tourists, the Mecca of motorists
and the scenes of many Impromptu
parties, these places for many years
held a corner in the hearts of the
American public that gave them a
place of almost equal Importance with
the circus and the chautauqua. Few,
however, survived long after January
16, 1920, because the main source of
their Income was gone.
One of the most popular roadhouses
within several hundred miles of the
city, for many years a Mecca for prom
inent Philadelphláns on their hikes
and rambles, has to somé extent sur
vived and still opens its doors to thou
sands of tourlste each month. It Is
the old Jeffersonville inn located on
the corner of Egypt road and Ridge
pike, about seven miles from historic
Valley Forge and about two miles
northwest of Norrlstown. It Is better
known to Its friends as Tom Brown
inn, by which name It went for many
Surrounded by spots made famous
because of their connection with
events of the Revolution, itself per
meated with historical associations,
the Inn held the Interest and patronage
of many educated men because of the
stories and data of historical events
so closely connected with the old
building. '
The house was built In 1765 and was
besieged by the British and partially
destroyed ten years later. This site
was in the neutral gróund between
the established lines of both the Brit
ish and American armies, and was
constantly scouted by horsemen of
both armies. The Americans, when at
Valley Forge, had their most easterly
pickets at the Juncture of the two
roads at Jeffersonville. At that time
the Inn was owned by the Thompsons,
who, because of their relationship to
General Thompson and because of
their open hostility to the royal cause,
were objects of animosity to the Brit
ish troops. And because of this the
Inn was fired and partially destroyed.

floor, said to be the result of a skir

many fighters of the Revolutionary
war still remain to be trod upon by

Once More the
Nation Heralds
Its Natal Day
When Liberty called to a people op
press'd They sprang as one man to the fray;
They carried a banner by Providence
And it waves In Its glory today;
Long a?o on the fields that their valor
had won
Our fathers triumphantly stood
And lifted the emblem that glows In the
And stained Its bright folds with their
How they stood long ago on the fields
of their fame
Let Trenton and Brandywine tell,
Let Yorktown and Valley Forge echo
each name (
To the tocsin of Liberty's bell;
They sleep where the rivers flow down
to the sea,
Revered by all patriots true;
They rest 'neath the rose and they camp
'neath the tree
The men of the old Buff and Blue.
Who sees not our banner in pride as it
By the winds of America toss'd?
Who drops not a tear on our forefathers'
graves '
When he thinks what our Liberty cost?
We are proud of our land In its lovelight
Aye, próud of the men of our wars;
The stars In the heavens will never out
shine The beauty of Old Glory's stars.
We hall this bright day on the sea and
the shore
That tells us of Liberty's dawn,
And the old Continentals seem marching
once more
As they did in the days that are gone;
Their fame la eternal, for the fame never
When the cause that is fought for Is
Look up! see our standard that's set in
the skies.
And honor the brave who are dust
We are ONE in the land that they left
us today.
We are strong on the crest of the sea.
And Liberty rules In her own gentle way;
We are truly the home of the free;
Forever and aye may the happy bells
Till trembles the arch of the sky;
Forever and aye may we gleefully sing
Of the world's only Fourth of July.

Kind of Office "Help" With Which

"dumbest" girl In all Washington, as
serts the Post of that city. She's a

cently her boss, who Is, a very busy,
bellowing sort of man, told her to get
Agriculture on the telephone. She
jumped for a phone directory.
Time wore on. Late afternoon
came. The boss had been engrossed
In matters of grave importance, and
it was nearly 4 :30 before he suddenly
recalled that Annie hadn't reported
on his morning phone call.
"Annie," he thundered, "where's my
Agriculture call?"
"Why, I'm sorry, sir, but It hasn't
got a phone."
"Who hasn't got a phone?"
"Why, Mr. Culture, sir. I looked
through all the C's and all the K's,
sir, and I couldn't find Mr. Agra Cul
ture's name In either list, sir."
Made Bagpipes Useful.
An old adventurer who passed away
in Australia at the age of ninety-four,
was the only man I've known, says a
correspondent, to put bagpipes to a
useful purpose.. After being captured
when the Eureka stockade fell, he
Joined the Victoria police, and was
largely responsible for the capture of
the bushranger ".Tewboy." He was then
appointed second-in-command of an
expedition that set out to find traces
of Leichardt (another bushranger),
and he used to tell that one day the
party was surprised by 200 natives,
with hostile Intent, whereupon one Mc
intosh yelled : "The pipes, Charlie, the
pipes while we retreat." The old ad
venturer played the pipes and the
natives were so mystified that they
stood open-mouthed while the party
marched off.

The Old
Important Truth
JL O make each part as strong as the rest," was his way oí "building
a wonderful, one-horse chaise that wouldn't wear out till judgment day."
This illustrates a fact that is keeping many doctors busy these days
human bodies, like chaises, break down because some part isn't as
strong as the others.
Very often it's because of ill-balanced food, lacking in some impor
tant element of nutrition. This is especially true of ills developed in
childhood, and carried on through life.
Grape-Nuts, that world-famous, ready-to-eat cereal, brings the plan
of building each part as strong as the rest to serve human need. Grape
Nuts contains all the nutriment of those best of the field grains, wheat
and barley, including the vital mineral elements, and it is a wonderful
food for building and sustaining health and strength.
The delicious flavor and crispness of Grape-Nuts make it a wel
come dish whenever you're hungry.

There seems to be a great opening
for humorists in the states. George S.

to have sprung Into prominence at
once. He is now, of course, lecturing
on what he forgot to put into the book,
and appears before his audiences

Is "the original helmet worn by Marco
