La- this country entered the war, but such an expression is not literally true, because we are not allied with any nation. The United States is at war with Germany only, and because of offenses, committed by that nation against the dignity and peace of our country. We probably will fight in the same trench-e- s as Britain and France, but they are not our allies, we have none. It is the purpose of the Wilson administration to avoid all entangling alliances during the war with Germany, and to emerge from it with clean hands and with a principle upheld because it was just. We are not even at war with nations allied on the side of Germany. It is true that diplomatic relations have been broken off between this country and Austria and Turkey, but there has been no declaration of war from either side. For that matter Germany has never passed a declaration of war against the United States, though we have uttered such a one against them. But despite the fact we cannot truly be called one of the allies, people will continue to do so because we are fighting with them against a common enemy.

She was the spouse of Joseph Thompson, a farmer, and had been married about three years when her husband decided- to sell her on the auction block. ' This old practice, while it never had legal sanction, had been followed in rural sections of En- gland for centuries. The auc- tion commenced at noon on the 0 appointed day, Thompson placing his wife in a large oak chair, with a rope around her neck. He freely admitted his spouse's faults, declaring that she had been to him "only a born serpent, a tormentor, a domestic curse, a night invasion and devil." He then pointed out her good qualities, including novel reading, the ability to milk cows and to make good butter.

If the leg islature were constituted of like material it would be more progressive. Measles and whooping cough have a firm grasp over all of this section, and some deaths can be recorded to their ravages. Several cases of pneumonia have developed from the attacks of measles. The proper exercise of precaution upon those afflicted would be wisdom. that oil in paying quantities lies under the section around Dirigo. For one well on the farm now owned by James M. Campbell was pumped for months and was a good producer. But at the time this well was being worked it was necessary to haul the oil in barrels from here to Cumberland river, ten miles away, as the Company that drilled the well did not have money enough to build a pipe line. And as some of the large producing wells in Pennsylvania were struck at about the same time this one was drilled, oil became so cheap that it did not pay the owners to further operate this well, it being the only cne in this whole section of the State and was thus so far from a refinery that the cost of getting the crude oil to the refinery was more than could be realized for the finished product. This well has now been filled but the oil is still there and only awaits the stem of the driller to show for itself. There is also coal in this section. There is not a deep well in the entire section that does not go through a bed of coal, and on the farm ot R L. Campbell coal has been struck at a distance of less than sixty feet from the surface. It was in this well and just after they had gone through this bed of coal that the drillers came to a strata they could nob penetrate. They drilled for about three weeks and sunk the shaft less than one inch, and becoming discouraged abandoned the well. This was some fifty years ago, and so of course if they had had modern machinery like what is used today nothing could have checked their progress But still the hole made at that time is still partially open and anyone desiring to resume operations can find the identical spot where the coal was struck and where the impenetrable strata was found. And this is one of the farms in this section that has not already been leased.
