How long, Oh Lord, how long are the Court House sidewalks to be filled
with the rubbish which has been allowed to remain there since January
Judge MORRISON, of McKean county, will hold court for Judge GORDON
next week. The serious illness of the latter will prevent him from
dispensing justice for some time.
As long as the County Commissioners are bent on spending money why not
remove the old six by ten glass in the Court House windows and replace
them with big plates.
Harry THOMAS, of the Second ward, formerly of Woodland, was arrested

Judge NILES in Town.
Judge Jerome B. NILES, of Tioga county, was in Clearfield Tuesday
evening. The Judge was here on business, but was not adverse to
talking politics. He is a Quayite of the old school and dead against
the Stone-Elkin crowd. He defeated Stone's appointee, David CAMERON,
two years ago, and expects to wind up a long political career on the
bench. At the same time he would not dodge the gubernatorial
lightning if he happens out in the storm due about June 11.
Clearfield Stock Sold Well
The prices bid for the stock in Clearfield organizations sold by the
Administrator of the late George WEAVER's estate were very flattering
to the solidity and perpetuity of the several corporate bodies. The
County National Bank stock, par value $100 per share, sold for
$601.71; Clearfield Fire Brick Works, par value $100, brought $190.92;
Clearfield Water, par value $20, went for $44.
Colonel Conwell Here
Colonel and Mrs. Russell H. CONWELL passed through Clearfield Monday
morning on their way home from DuBois where the Colonel lectured to a
large audience on "Acres of Diamonds." The big Colonel looks just as
young and vigorous as when he first delivered that same lecture in
Clearfield fifteen or more years ago, and his raven locks are just as
free from silver threads.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company has voluntarily increased the wages

an increase of 10 per cent and the laborers one cent per hour. The
foremen now receive $55 per month and laborers 13 cents per hour. The
increase dates from April 1, 1902.
The English Language
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes;
But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes;
Then one fowl is goose, but two are called geese;
Yet the plural of mouse should ever be meese;
You may find a lone mouse, or a whole nest of mice.
But the plural of house is houses, not hice;
If the plural of man is always called men
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
The cow in the plural may be cows or kine
But the plural of row is rows, not rine.
And if I speak of a foot and you show me your feet
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If the singular's this and the plural is these
Should the plural of kiss be nicknamed keese?
Then one may be that and three would be those
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose.
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren
But though we say mother we never say methren;
Then masculine pronouns are he, his and him
But imagine the feminine, she, shis and shim.
So the English, I think, you all will agree,
Is the most wonderful language you ever did see.
Judge White Will Orate
Judge Harry WHITE, of Indiana, will deliver the Memorial Day oration
in Clearfield this year. There is not another man in Pennsylvania who
will go farther, in any kind of weather and without price, to make a
speech than will Harry WHITE. And he can make a good speech, too.
Last Fourth of July he drove from Indiana to Glen Campbell in an old
go-cart to orate and drove back, a distance of 25 miles, after
nightfall. When about half way home his horse ran off, spilled the
old man out and tore up things generally. The Judge escaped unhurt,
although some of his Prohibition critics over that way claim his pint
flask of red-eye was completely destroyed in the shake-up. He spent
the entire next day regaling his friends in Indiana with the story of
the runaway, etc. Our G.A.R. people are fortunate in securing Judge
WHITE. He will do a good job.
A Veteran Salesman
"Joe" WILSON, the veteran wood and willow-ware salesman, was in town
Wednesday calling on customers. "Joe" traveled this county before the
advent of railroads. He was driving over the county with Captain
KERR, of Pittsburg, then a liquor salesman, in 1867, when the latter
broke his leg by driving over the high bank near Hartshorn's, below
Curwensville. The Captain was brought to Clearfield where he lay at
the Mansion House for a couple of months. Although that was 35 years
ago and "Joe" does not look like the old-timer he is.
