To the pol tilt Grundy of the Many the re am t he the appointment of state senator William e Crow to fill the vacancy in the u. S. Senate which developed at the death of Knox is a severe blow Cal prestige of Joseph and is the most recent slaps taken at the president of p. Al. A., by the leaders of the publican state organization. The Crow Grundy feud of several years standing is brought to mind by this action of governor Sproul and while the enemies of Grundy and they Are legion will rejoice Over this latest blow to his Power there Are Many within the ranks of the party who regret the action of the governor As they fear it will mean the withdrawing of the patronage of the manufacturers and of what use is an organization without the backing of the a Money bags to run it. The Vare s of Philadelphia their cohorts Are jubilant Over appointment and senator Vare takes unto himself a full Mede of credit for the naming of Crow. This faction who have Ever been enemies of Grundy naturally would feel pleased Over the discredit thrown on the a Boss of Bucks Quot although they Are Friendly to senator Crow. George Knox Mccain in the Philadelphia evening Ledger says the following of the appointment. A Noth withstanding the fact that senator Crow is chairman of the Republican state committee with the Power of that organization at his Hack his selection to succeed Sena toi Knox will come As a disappoint ment to a Large body of influential republicans throughout the state.

It is within the Range of possibilities that a fresh outbreak of factional warfare May occur Between now and november 1922. A it has been the history of Pennsylvania politics that these upheavals run in cycles. Possibly another Cycle May Bej due next year. A while the appointment was not unexpected indeed it was the Logi-1 Cal selection raw political conditions considered their was reason to believe that another than senator Crow might be selected As a Success-1 or to the erudite and Able Knox. A the politicians wanted Crow. He knows the game tics. He is a highlight in the Republican organization were for him. A to personal friends governor Sproul had displayed an inclination to take a higher View of the Situ Hon. To reach beyond the realm of the purely political and seek a Man who by his distinctive personality High attainment and representative character would in a measure size up to the Knox Standard.

The Caus farm is one of the oldest in that Section and was leased by or. Walter Hill son of the late Hugh Hill about a month ago and his loss of Stock with about 300 bushels of potatoes at this season of the year is quite discouraging. The fire was discovered by a Driver of a bread route on his Way to Bristol. Who notified the department Here and All companies except no. 2, were soon at the scene of the fire. Upon their arrival however it was evident the barn had been burning quite a while and the occupants of the farm Homestead were not aware of the conflagration until awakened by the clanging of the fire truck Hells.

There was no insurance. Among the display of National colors through the Borough on sunday As a Token of valor of the War heroes buried Here on that Day was a Flag hanging in front of the residence of Merton Randall on Bath Street that attracted the attention of Many people.

Wilson Randall who had moved Here from Newportville and opened a Carriage and Blacksmith shop on Bath Street a few years previous. While not among those without a Flag to display on such a memorable occasion had one that to his liking did not show the stars prominently enough. At that time to employed among his workmen Charles Booz who was noted As an artistic Painter and when the question of the worn part of old glory was mentioned to him he suggested that mrs. Randall now of revered memory buy some White Muslin and on it he painted a Blue ground developing in lines the shape of 13 stars. While it is presumed from his work he was familiar with the design of the 13 colonies it is evident to embody a Star for each state even at that time was too great a task which accounts for Hie display of what now seems to the younger generation an Odd Flag of the nation.
