In-ordinary times one may descant upon one's civic duty; point with ''unerring prophecy" (caul phrase of thd lOlitician) to this or that public nec- assity and the certainty of a generous response on the part of t fhoae who must pay the bills; later the politician now become a statesman, points with 'pardonable pride" to the same as 'achievements which I nave wrought" ith emphasis a hundred pounds to the square inch.on the personal pronoun. The fellows who paid the bills (best ot ail tests) and bore the brunt ot OK labor of the campaign, and 'ho -very naturally supposed therefore that they had played some conrmond- .ble port, begin to question, whether or not they really had had anything ,t all whatsoever to .do with the projects.

It may be stated in passing thai Jfc Brydpu,. rbe; local ' fuel, .administrator' for tie Somerset arid, is 'also Pure Blood and Weak Nerves tive to serve the othor. DOW, pseudo patriots as weU as real" patriots. "The eiegencies of our nation Lu this year ot 1918 are such as to require pa-' Lriotism, the purest, the most devoted, the most self-sacrificing. ]atrlotism unalloyed and unadulterated. We have Uris type in abundant measure, but unhappily we have too pseudo patriots in- large number. The coal trade furnishes no exception and in it the pseudo patriots burrow and. undermine their fellows with impunity and with tie greater safety since thoy are protected by authority which, they themselves create and promulgate through the governmental official positions they hold. No man in the coal business ought to be in governmental authority through the . exercise of which he is enabled to further his own interests. The priority order is the bane of aU coal operations in this and other districts and ought not to be tolerated. It is susceptible of the most flagrant abuses and pernicious results, hurtful alike to the real Interest of the government as .well as the operators who suffer irreparable loss and 1 Injury thereby." 90MEBSET COUJiTI COAL OPEKATOES Lack of Blrunplh In about tho first symptom of violation oC [ho laws ol health.

Jiow welcome this catchy all-sentiment love song really is! Not a hint of war; not a trace of cold common sense. Just winsome melody and affection. And when you hear this clever appealing refrain sung by Henry Burr on this uew Victor April record you straightway fall in-love with the song itself. An equally unusual and excellent reverse--"Give Me the Right to Love You" by Sterling Trio _.... ?fo. 18435--5c . And how appropriately Alma Glucfc's "Darling Nellie Gray" becomes a leader in this list. The tender old refrain takes on an added simplicity and charm under'this new interpretation _. So. 64729--$1 It's a laugh jnst to say, "I'd Like to Be a Monkey in the Zoo." To hear something really funny listen to Frances White sing this and also "Go-Zin-To." This record will laugh itself into your record library the minute you hear it. ' So. 45149--$!. To many Henry Burr's "Just a Baby's Prayer at Twilight" for a soldier, daddy is one of the beautiful touches of the year's music. An excellent reverse : --"On the Road to Home, Sweet Home." So. 18139--75c It will give us genuine pleasure to play any of the new April records for you--at any time. McDonald Music Company, ROYAL HOTEL BLOCK, COS3fKU,SYI!LH, PA.
