Cummins has charge of the work which is being performed by prisoners who are | serving police court sentences. One gang is' engaged in the outside work while another is employed in the City hall basement at the task of painting signs where this operation Is required. Tbe work was started on Thursday on Seventh avenue at Hagerty street and that thoroughfare was followed to the southern section of the city and now they are working on Sixth avenue, cleaning the stop signs and painting the posts which support them. The stop signs require only washing and the need for such -action was imperative for they had become very dirty. All old signs are being taken to the City hall basement for repainting. A supply of trafilc paint has been ordered arid as soon as it reaches the city an application of .red paint will be made to the curbing at all points where it is utilized to indicate that parking is not permitted. The paint applied a year ago to the curbing held up very well, but it needs renewal. Some time will be required to cover the entire city in these operations. Officer Cummins is utilizing a. motorcycle for the transportation of signs, paint and other equipment required in the work now being done. Some new signs have been ordered by the mayor and. these will be installed later. !

While the greatest reward for the splendid work she has accomplished comes from the personal satisfaction and pleasure she derived from it and the associations she formed, the veteran leader cannot be otherwise than pleased with the 'ecognition that is now being ac- cor ed her by the church and people of 'ie community.

Memorial day was appropriately observed in the county capital, with the unfurling to the breezes of the Stars and Stripes, and the closing of the public buildings, stores and business places. The outstanding feature of the day Was the parade at 9 o'clock in the morning, being one, of the finest patriotic parades the county capital has ever witnessed. The parade and program for the day were carried out under the direction of Fort Fetter post. No. 518, American Legion. Samuel C. Calvin officiated as chief marshal of the procession, which consisted of five distinctive divisions, including all of the local patriotic organizations and the students of the Hollidaysburg public schools, as well as the students of St. Mary's and St. Michael's parochial schools. The first division .of the parade consisted of Chief Marshal Calvin, who rode in an Clyde Black, well kndtyn Jtoatliig pring young man, is cdnfltled to his btne oh Frankiln street aufteflng rom a double fracture and a dtglbca* ion of the right leg.

Mr. Hair cited her splendid record and achievements as a teacher in the school and expressed regret that she has been unable to attend regularly lately due to illness. Suffering from a weak heart, Miss Shiffler gave up teaching soon after the dedication of the new Bare Memorial church, as an opportunity was presented by the reorganization arid departmentalization of the Sunday school along the lines laid down by the state association. The illness has grown more serious during the past few months and has prevented her attendance at church services. In addition to the long record as a Sunday school teacher, Miss Shiffler also taught forty years in the public schools of the county. • A large number of these years were spent in the borough schools. By reason of this double 1 association Miss Shiffler is widely known and is held in the highest esteem by everyone. Prior to locating in Roaring Spring; Miss Shiffler was a Sunday school worker and teacher in the Reformed Sunday school at East Sharpsburg. On moving to the borough she attended the Church of God and accepted the leadership of a das* of boys 10 years of age. She taught this same class for more than twenty years and some few of them were still members when she finally gave up the class to take a larger class of girls in the intermediate department. During the score of years she taught the young men she furnished inspiring leadership. Among the members of this class were George Shaffer, Levi Miller, Roy Shaffer, Peter Smith, Don- Samuel C. __ ..... _ _____ automobile, and was followed by his aides.

This fine old veteran of Civil war fame, annually makes a pilgrimage to his home town to participate in the Memorial day parade and celebration. Mr. Smith, who is now 88 years of age, is a general favorite in the community, and was warmly greeted by his old friends and admirers. This gallant old soldier is possessed of a genial personality, which has won him a host of friends, and the years have endeared him to a large circle, who are only too happy to greet him on this patriotic day of every year. The second division of the parade was featured by the newly organized drum and bugle corps of Fort Fetter post, which made a most imposing appearance, clad for the flrst time in their handsome new uniforms. The Fort Fetter post rifle squad and Spanish-American war veterans were also in this division.
