LIGHTNING ON THE FARM If G.Ft'OltD PIXCHOT haa atood before an audlenca of farmer auch aa used to come hre fur the public meetings of the old State Board of Agriculture twenty - live years ago and talked aa be did lust night about the way electricity Is going to do the chorea on the furm in Pennsylvania, he would have been told to go back to college Tho Governor vlsioned the day when the Giant Power system whoso preliminaries ho launched last winter would put electricity into every farm house and have it light the farm, wcei the house, turn the washing machine and do other things, possibly milk ttfe cows. Hut It wns not a Joke. Advances in the uso of electricity have been so wonderful of late years that all needed to give thn rural dwellers real servico are distribution systems. Big companies are inclined to shy nt them when it comes to reading meters and collect - ing bills, but these aro really minor details. ' The fact is lightning which has been the dread of the farm is coming nearer and nearer to being its servant. Dauphin - county's commissioners are in step with modern sentiment as to improved highways and up - to - date administration. ' CITY ZONING CITT zoning, is. one of the very important i. subjects that must be taken up among the other items of the City Planning Commission's proposed survey, for which Council recently provided "funds. But it is a subject not generally understood. The people ought to know more about it. - ". For that reason it is pleasing to note that the Civic Club plans to bring to the city, Morris Knowles, of Pittsburgh, a city planner of national reputation and an authority "on zoning, to address a public meeting on the topic. ' The' last Legislature opened the way for zoning regulations in all third class cities, of which Harris - burg is one. The Planning Commission is about,, to take advantage of the opportunity anl the more knowledge the ; people have of the elements involved and the value thereof the better. . - the Five - sixths of taxpayers pay taxes for all as - a result of tax - exemption. More people are eoming to Secretary Mellon's way of blinking every, day. y WELFARE REUNION mHE 'business of , the Welfare I Federation is to inquire into the; needs and business methods , of the, various organizations served by it and to dig up the money with w - hich to finance them Friday evening the tables will be turned. The Welfare Federation will hold a reunion land open meeting at the Penn - Harris' which any subscriber will be privileged to attend 'and at that time will not only make a full report of its activities for the year but will invite all interested to ask questions as to its needs and business methods. Some hundreds of people, at least, will attend, and thegff.jr the man ho is aiked for "interest displayed goes far to prove J matin's"" raying he ha none. 4th f W:kr oh ir4 Mi fci 4.4li 4)f m M 4l444 la aa M Ihfww - I la U4f t 19, .llirnniiC of a I, if i r 4 ab.14,4. riUa 4 M.av iW4 f aia 4M i;fM kS4tf all - 4) at! r muk (, 0lt4 imtm ffmmtt mf t 4waallMi4 cf4we 4f tmutrn a. 4 M 4 4tl ! all 4.f iWii : a ptairlf hi fcl;t4 fc hiI4 w uia 1 iM4t) ail f 1.4 4i4h f fa ihiva af 4m4.uit tag rma irj, fai w;r wl4 h wr Tb rU4a w4vt4 ar ;V 4Tw4.

Not since the Czar was overthrown has there been such an opportunity for tho Russian people to assert themselves for their own good providing, of course, the rank and file is intelligent enough and sufficiently informed to desire a change. , " " - Governor Trapp declures Oklahoma safe place fur - investment.

As the sportsmen work together, so will the object of tho association be attained, which is - to make a fish and game paradise of Central Pennsylvania.

Brennan in the course of some interesting reflections in the Philadelphia' Inquirer says some tine things about General Kdvvurd Martin, who is being strongly supported by Wuto Republican leaders for Auditor tienerai unu wnose nomination is predicted in several cities, as the running mate of Sam uel 8. lwis for State Treasurer. Mr. Brennan says General Martin has an exceptional military record, starting .with Philippine service in. the old Tenth Pennsylvania and overseas as major of the 110th with promotions and decorations. The Martin selection is said to have been made becauao he "would represent the highest Ideals in the conduct of the fiscal branch of the Hata government." ' Some of the Philadelphia newspapers express doubts whether the Republican 8tate leaders are going to be as keen about going along on the Plnchot legislative program as generally believed. No one is being quoted, but some doubts are being cast out on prohibition and various subjects. Governor Pinchot has declined to be drawn into discussion of the matter and from the attention being devoted to preparations for the legislative primary is apparently going to make as sure" of it as possible himself. : , '" (, vThe - , Philadelphia Bulletin says the Supreme Court decision on the administrative code.Vas on the point which seems to be a favorite when a political case is involved, namely to 'attack the title so that if it goes down the whole act is ; viatiated. This newspaper and others look for considerable litigation on various points to follow. , ,; In. opinion of State Treasurer Charles A. Snyder the decision was not as bad as first reported from his viewpoint. "They said Pinchot could build a church, but he could not put saloon fixtures in it'' was his rather unusual comment. Representative "Al" Rinn, of Lehigh county, one of the rip roaring Democrats of the last session, says he is not quite clear whether he will run or riot. "But the grading crossing bill is not yet passed" was represented to : him, , this being his favoctte measure.' "But, I'll cross that crossing when I get to it" was the adroit reply of the Lehigh legislator. . ' 1 4 a m (, A (i jC4lRWt.f. t ,n,f , IfVfJ .

For the third tlme' in a century the British government has been overthrown on the floor of the House of Commons. The ministers did not , have the confidence of Parliament. Labor rule seems assured. At first thought .one might say Queen Victoria avoided painful thoughts, dying when she did. . But evidently popular, opinion must have counted the other two times the government was 'overthrown. And it may seem odd, that "labor rule seejms assured." But ythat . is only, because 'one is unaccustomed to thoughts of labor rule. Fifty years hence labor rule will be common enough; vand thoughts of present conditions will seen) odd.. . ', .v Jt is . all a state of mind. r One of our favorite,, relatives was a grand - uncle who, when he died, was past 90,. In his time he gave the flesh - pots of Egypt a continued and merry chase. He took the ICeeley cure so many times that, as. "Bob" Taylor used to say, "he jingled when he walked, and "tinkled when he talked, and had a fit at every motion of the silver bill." lie was old - stuff. He believed he was born to fill" a certain' niche; that he was a commoner; - that there were., men and women born to the purple; that none but .an agnostic had the right idea of religion; that woman's place was in the home; that the Itepublican party in America, and . the King in England, could do ; no. wrong; that Matthew Quay needed only wings 'to. be, an angel; that it" was every man's inalienable right to do as he pleased, .so long as he did not interfere with the . rights of others; that It was his privilege to drink as much red liquor as he liked, and when he liked. He was, you see, quite old - stuff' A couple of summers ago we sat on his front porch and talked with him. And the burden of his complaint, at92, was this: - , - "I have lived too long. I have lived beyond the life of things I am accustomed to. I have lived from one vorld into another and" strange one. The ideas ot to - day are net my ideas; ' the customs are not my customs. I am too old to readjust myself. My mind would be easier,' I' might say, had I died twenty years ago." . " - 1 Changes are occurring, even in Pennsylvania. We don't mind saying that in the spring of 1922 we smiled or laughed, depending 'upon with whom we were conversing, when it was suggested Gifford. Pinchot had a 1 opportunity to win theRepublican nomination for Governor. The idea was preposterous. Where in the United States was there a political organization so powerful as that n Pennsylvania where a machine so cutely perfect as in, Pennsylvania? Pinchot didn't have a chance! It is a peculiarity of the human mind that it can adapt itself to conditions just as a stomach can adapt itself to food. What happened in Pennsylvania in the spring of 1 922 convinced us' that in politics it Is no longer safe to count upon the expected to happen. Men and women are actually developing brains: and they don't "go along" so quietly as ten, fifteen, thirty years ago. Wise in their day and generation are the leaders who forget the past; who .realize it is'1924 and not lS9t - They - are wise who forget traditions and folklore." who get away from ancient history andlive in to - day. Even the redoubtable Quay would - be hopeless! v outclassed in 192 were he' to cling to old - time methods. . And Quay, here he living, would not live In the past. " His system, Would be one of right now not 1900. The turn - over in Great Britain is no more surprising than that in Pennsylvania. , M. Ii. J.

He has been cauea upon to ihuao imo mm has been more productive of correspondence and visits by delegationa and individuals than any other class of appointments. The files of the ottice have been crammed with letters on Judicial avallables and . some of them are not commendatory. The number of t volunteer letters on such subjects Is surprising. , , Robert Francis Gorman, of the' bureau of inturma - tlon in the Internal Affairs Department, who is said to bo the first man in State service here to have a radio in - hla home, is now a consultant on radio troubles. Every time anything gets wrong with the apparatus of any of the people on the Hill they call up Mr. Gorman. "1 was clear down in Dallas when a. man on the next block brought me back over the telephone" said he the other afternoon in discussing "relief calls. There is no common bond between Governor Gifford Pinchot and State Treasurer Charles A. Snyder and che fact that their homey have in part the same name means nothing. The name of the Pinchot home on theahills back of Miltord is Grey Towers and the name of the Snyder home in the midst of Pottsville town is Grey Gables. The State clipping bureau which became entangled with economy plans and was abolished in name and curtailed as to most of its operations is commencing to' function again.1 Most of' the departments which formerly used it declare they, call not do without it and While Secretary Berkey H. - Boyd's plan of buying cliDPings at three cents per clip may be ail right it is not up to date. As one man put it "You have to find out what's been printed and then order it." Lately; cellent 'demonstration of how clippings help and publicly announced how three instances of violation' of the motor code were brougnt to uiresi unu iiuuwuiiieui' u:au some one in the Highway Department was watching the papers. Every now and then crusades - come along and upset something on Capitol Hill, but it conies back. . ' Fiscal ''control,'' as the process of keeping branches of the Government within the, income allotted to them is bilicially known is ceasing to be a catchword ot the Capitol. In numerous instances department heads , .. ...,iin T,r,ri..o thuir h.I lo wances have been over drawn. - It seems - the appropriations have been divided" up by months, twenty tour to cover .me appropriation period, and it - is said even the Governor's office has been "called" for running beyond what was allocated. But the enforcement of the control is not always easy.

' ' ' , Belief at the State" Capitol is there . will be small chance for Mrs. Freda Trost, the Philadelphia woman whose sentence of death for poisoning ' her husband with rough on . rats a dozen years ago was commuted to life imprisonment, getting ireedom during this State Administration. The refusal of the, State Board of Pardons to grant pardon after the extended arguments at the recent meeting even when supported by a letter from Warden .Jofcn C. tlroome is regarded as significant. Mrs. Trost was refused in the last administration, but the effort then was neither as well advertised or as well made up as that which has just, been unsuccessful. The Trost case recalls that of Mrs. Kate Edwards, of Berks county, who ?was refused pardon by a 'Board and who remained in prison . until freed .when'; four Governors' refused to sign a deaths warrant for 'her.

"Farmer Week" is tho biggest week for oysters Harrisburg knows.. People from tho country, to whom oysters are a luxury, are here by thousands and gojntt right down the list of the five standard ways Harrisburg prepares oysters and of which the State Capital luncher knows so little when ho ought to know more. The consumption of oysters in Harrisburg this week will be something "gosh awful" in the language of a "biscuit shoot er" in one of the restaurants.

SHORT WALKS W AND , ABOUT HARRISBURG it seems hard to realize when Harrisburg "was hardly the size of HUmmelstown it was publishing dooks, and that before 1800 it had won some note among the Pennsyl vania and Maryland . people 'who aeait in publications for what came trom its presses. In tho State Li brary, only a short' walk, from the busiest part of the city, is a collection of Harrisburg imprints of rare interest. It was assembled during me aunumirauons or, JJrs. Thomas Lynch Montgomery and Georee P. Donehoo, Norman - ; D.i Gray, the assistant librarian, taking great pains to raaKe it as complete as funds al lowed, - ,. This collection is kept under iock ana Key, and few people get to see it. - The books are not. replaceable and much handling would harm some of them, owir.sr. - to . - tka state in which they . . were when bought; and the desire to maintain them as close to the original state as possible. There is a copy of one ot the first books printed here, possibly the first, one issued by John Wyeth and John W, Allen in 1,793. A book published by Benjamin Mayer, whose: name is scarcely known in .Harrisburg history : is dated 1799. In 1804 Mr. Wyeth, who published ' the Oracle of .Dauphin from 1792 until he retired in 1827 and was succeeded by his son, Francis Wyeth, published a - five - volume edition of Tristram Shandy "in leather with gilt titles. ' ; He also issued books by Smollett and other famous authors. These titles came out prior to the War of 1812 and be fore Harrisburg won its fight to be the State capital. There are other bookrin the collection on the Hill, including some from the presses of Joshua Elder, Weistling, Hamilton. Wheit, Cameron and Krause, Gleim, Mowry and others identified with printing long years ago. There were German as well - as. English editions., All of which goes to show that Harrisburg in its younger days appreciated books as much - - aa to - day. A. B. H.
