Cotner of South Central Kansas monday afternoon Tift for his Home after a month s visit with relatives in this county. Or. Cotner who is a native of Strawberry Ridge emigrated West sixteen years ago. He is engaged in farming Aud threshing and has become a widely known and substantial citizen. On ins return Home yesterday he was accompanied by mrs. Susan Boone and miss Carrie c. Patterson of Strawberry Ridge who will take up their residence 8outh Central. Or. Cotner states that a Large proportion of the population in that Section of Kansas is made up of Pennsylvania folks and that every year these hold a grand reunion. On that occasion is determined How Many wish to revisit their old Homes in the Keystone state when special rates East Are easily procured for the party. South Central is near Wichita the scene of some of Carrie nations Saloon smashing. Or. Cotner states that while Kansas is a prohibition state there is a very Large Saloon element there. Liquor is sold with impunity he said because is difficult to secure a conviction being next to impossible to get a jury in which there Are not Saloon men or their sympathizers. The Temperance element Long ago gave up the fight and there was no agitation until Carrie nation to Ltd hold with her Little Hatchet. In some of the larger cities such As Wichita a sort of a Compromise is effected by proceeding against the Saloon As a nuisance. All a liquor seller has to do is to his Fine regular intervals and go on . On tuesday March 5th, 1901, the residence of or. William b. Chamberlin Torres Dale Philadelphia. Or. John 1. Dorris of Huntingdon pa., and miss Anne m. Rea of Danville. Or. Dorris is one of the leading attorneys of Huntingdon county. He is also attorney for the Pennsylvania Railroad company. Or. Aud mrs. Dorris w ill go to House keeping in canal for first Winter in its history orders Are withheld. Hugh i. Quick division superintendent. Of the Pennsylvania canal was in town tuesday. He stated that orders for the customary repairs on the canal made during the Winter have thus far been withheld a circumstance in line with recommendation by the directors to the shareholders of the company that the canal be abandoned. Or. Quick admits that things look As though the waterway May be put to no use during the coming summer. is True that repairs Are nowhere so urgent that the canal could not go on duty without them but for the company should intend to use the canal to neglect All repairs the Oue season of the year in which Tley can be made would seem to be a questionable policy and form a departure never made by the company before. The canal company owns some 142 boats which lie different Points along the line of the canal a half a dozen or More this place. Unless these arc to be permitted to go to ruin to rot Down where they lie will be necessary to use the canal to effect their removal. would therefore be unsafe to predict that water will not be turned into the canal next Spring. Our citizens May Well regret to see the Day when the canal is abandoned As will no doubt prove next to impossible to keep the big waterway which cuts through the Centre of our town in anything like a presentable condition. The disgusting appearance of the big ditch during the three or four Mouths in Winter when the water is out with the accumulation of rubbish and sewage that covers its Bottom May convey some idea of what the canal abandoned May be like during the whole year foreign missions. Hon. Daniel w. Mccurdy of Clearfield delivered an address in . Paul a m. E. Church surns a night in the subject of a missionary a very Large congregation turned out to hear him the spacious auditorium revealing few if any vacant seat9. Or. Mccurdy is a zealous methodist As Well As a fluent and Able speaker. He is a Layman and he spoke from a Layman a stand Point. Ptts. H. U. Learman introduced him As a Man a who serves god As a business and practices Law to the speaker declared himself a believer in old fashioned methodism with its shouts and hallelujah. If the Church would survive he said must stand by its amen Corner its class meetings and old fashioned revivals. The discourse no doubt succeeded in awaking the congregation to a full realization of its duty in the cause of foreign missions. The individual lie held who gives but one Dollar when he could spare five is not Only retarding his own spiritual growth but robbing god and robbing himself. Churches likewise make mistake acting upon the unchristian principle that a churches first duty is to itself Many spending Money upon buildings etc.,that might be devoted to the missionary cause. What is subscribed is often Given in the spirit in which a Bone is thrown to a dog saying a take and with enlarged National prestige has come enlarged National responsibility. The Philippines constitute a new Field for our missionaries which we can not ignore without ignoring our duty to god and the Flag we have planted succeed or. Buckingham. A. G.
