served practically all through the warand was once wounded A wife survives also one sicter Mrs Martha R Douglas ofHarrisburg Pittsburgh Oct I amvery anxious jindieod to see the new high way program put thru in the state of Pennsylvania Unless our eastern states nrevery careful they are going to find that the west has com pletely outstripped 111601 in facility of transportation Road building thruout the west is proceeding with great rapidity and many western tourists expresssurprise at the con dition of our eastern highways These western states realize that road transportation today is much mqre than a matter oMpcal interest Tourists bt oil g til into a region by good into that region in increasing quati tities PenuEylvania with some of the most beautifulscenery the entire country has many regions still unopened and inaccessible In addition to this there conies the increasingly vital problem of haul ing The recent railway congestion has clearly shown that some supple mentary method must be devised and arranged for in order to keep the production of the conntrjv No road program however which does not provide for adequate upkeep as well as constructipn of roads will be of slightest yalue In thfs connection the position ofsmall boroughs should be clarified and as sistance given The burden thrown upon the small borough by theuse of Us main street as a part of a great highway system is beyond jthe power of the taxpayers to bear Any road system in Pennsylvania which extends adequate highways and fails to care for them thru these small villages will fail of its purpose in the end and only a program which would cooperate with these boroughs and townsnips would meet with my own approval W W BUCK GIVES HISTORY OF LOG VALLEY GRANGE The followingis some historical data given by W W Black at the ded icatiori of the new Grange Hall cori cernng the old HartsJog Valley Grange Hartslog Vallei Grange No 375 was organized in the year 1874 in Odd Fellows Hall at Alexandria by Leonard Rhone f Centre Co and composed of fbliowiiig charter members namely and Mrs H G Neff Mr and Mrs B L Neff Mr and Mrs George Mr and Mrs Collins James Allen Roler Knode Joseph1 S Huyett and myself The above meeting place was used for about a year and then iuoved to and old stone libuse oh the H G Neff farm now owned by Walter Neff heirs The old stone house was used for a number of years as and store room From the H G Neff house the Grange moved lup to Mari assah Junction or the house oc cupied by E Gieenaud the Grange died there fom the lack pf interest and from the bppositiorTof the farm ers outside of the Grange The Grange was in a very crude state almost a primitive condition It took courage to be a patron in those days the opposed to the hooted at the farmer tor belonging to such a crazy organization J At that time we ordered our own groceries especially sugar and to bacco Kach member helped himself to the goodsas he went in and out of the Grange Hall andthe result was a bill ofindebtedness from Thornton Barnes Son Philadel phia EveryToin Dick and Harry were the bookkeeper most ofvthich was done onthe doors and walls of the building By way of explantion we reached down in our pockets and paid the 100 us honest men should do when they trifle with theiij busi ness affairs The Grange lay dormant for many years The Farmers Alliance broke in upon the scene of a shipwrecked Grange but lasted only about six months and was abandoned on ac count of a lack of organization and a sea to do business with and cooper ation amoiig the But the seed had beensown by the old pio neer Grange of1374 which took root and was reorganized in 1906 TheTirst preliminary meeting was held in Odd Fellows Hal with the following named persons present A M Allen W S Huyett SamuelWin ters J S McCauiley B B Miller and myself Nothing was accomplish ed at this meeting The next meeting was held in the Blue Spring School House where a re organization was effected with the following named persons presentA W S Huyett Samuel Win ters W S Neff B L NeffMrand Mrs J T ChUeott Mr and Mrs J S McCauiley Mr and Mrs B Mil ler Jennie Miller and myself Broth ersBoring and W F Hill initiated us into the rnysteries of the Grange and we received aduplicate of trie char 1S74 We must admit that it was through the pioneer work of the old Grange that we are enjoying the blessings and benefits of the Grange today It was a beacon light through the for ests of ignorance It took the knife and the axe and the pruning hookto blaze the way for a better Grange in the future It was a torch t earer lighting a new way for the farmers in this community The Charter members have all gone to their eternal rest except niy self They were pioneers or by gone days They stood up for a higher manhood and a better womanhood it took courage to be a patron All honor to theirsacred dusi and peace to their ashes They sleep be neath the clods of the valley and along eide of the gurgling waters of the Blue Juniata Let us hope they are enjoying a peace that they knew not on earth in that valley where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest PILES IN FOR S S 7TH TWO
