: WRITING BACK HOME.
In reporting the death of a man In
New York City the other day one of
the newspapers mentioned the fact
that "for eighteen years he had never
failed to write a letter to his father
and mother In a Pennsylvania village
It waa a simple statement of a sim
ple act, but It spoke volumes of con
stancy and fidelity of natural sffec
tlon. The dead man had not filled the
world with the splendor of wonder
ful achievements. His name will not
appear upon the roll of those whom
The movement Inaugurated by At
torney Eby at the last meeting of the
"Live Wires" for legislation for the
county support of the County Fair is
certainly a move In the right direc
tion. The annual celebration at Jan
by is the one thtng thst brings . the
entire county together for a single
united purpose Iciliiena Iroia each
precinct are thrown together for three
of four days In a spirit of friendly
competition as each section displays
its best products against those of an
other part of the county. New meth
ods of agriculture are discussed, able
lectures on varioua phases of public
life and welfare are heard, new Ideas
gained 'and exchanged In short the
county fair Is a sort of a public clear
ing bouse for all of our citltens. The
merchant with his display of mer
chandise rubs elbows with the real
man of the county, the tiller of the
soli the man who ralsea the grain,
fruit, etc., which means so very much
to our county. Representatives from
every calling In the county are thrown
together In a way not possible in
sny other manner and all this Is
bound to have its good results. The
amount of money involved is of little
consequence compared with the actual
results, of this movement and we
hardly think anyone will have any
Objection to the proposed legislation,

While the "dopesters" are busy tell

HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS.
It may seem that ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE
YEARS is a long time, but to a nation it is but a mere epan.
Two coursea of conservation are orxu first, the laisaoz faire
plan of leaving to SELF ' INTERESTED COMPETITION the
combating of waste, and, second, INITIATING LEGISLATION
which in the interest of the whole nation will endeavor to lessen the
SQUANDERING of our NATIONAL RESOURCES. This legis
lation may be of two kinds PENAL, which is imposing a penalty on
the wasteful expenditure of energy supplies, and HELPFUL, which is
imparting information as to what can be done, advancing loans at an
easy rate of interest to enable reforms to be carried out and insisting
on the greater prosperity which would result from the use of MORE
efficient appliances. ,
The anbject ia s complicated one, and it will demand the COM
BINED EFFORTS of experts and legislators for a generation, but
if it be not considered with definite intention of immediate action we
sLall be held up to the deserved execration of our not very remote,
