Complain no more, my lady, at the soaring prices of good wool materials, but turn 'your attention to new and' beautiful, sturdy" weaves la silk. Manufacturers are looklni facts In the face amd making substitutes to take the place of the dependable ,wool goods which have gone heretofore, by the" millions of yards, Into tailored sale*. There are heavr, crinkly crepes and rough, ftbeer weaves In silk, made for suit* for street and sports wear.

Although the engines, Nos. 2 and 3. are very small, and out of date" compared with modern locomotives, they have a record that Is enviable; On Christmas eve, In 1307, the same little engine that now does the major duty pulled the' fast train over the new railroad. Tne first trip was made without any,demonstration or show of any kind, and since that time it ha0 continued 'to perform Its duty, never missing a day or a trip, except on tfe* Sabbath, when DO train Is run. : Uses 1,000 Pounds of Cos! Dally. : i toblished not only to prove but to accommodate the'public, and It Is doing that dally, despite tt« derision of a great many. Train 3top» Anywhere. The distance from Dae West to Donalds Is four and seven-eighths miles, «· a fraction of a mile longer than tho dirt road. In that distance there are Mreral-grada road crossings, and. although they may not be termed regn- lar stops It Is a rule of the road that anywhere.-a person desires to board the train Is a 'stopping place. All that Is necessary is to mnke tile- engineer understand that a passenger desire to-get on and the train comes to a standstill.' This Is also In accordance with the policy of service, and no person Is denied the privilege of riding just because that person foiled to tenet the depot" In time--the stonln process Is'to cut across the fields to the track and beckon to the engineer to stop., After the passenger or passengers are' taken on the train proceeds wlthoat any anctae excitement. : Only Three Employees. The employees of the road number three. J. T. Boland is the engineer, having made ' tho first trip over the- road In 1907; John McDIIl is conductor. Mr. McDill also runs the automobile which Is operated by the railroad company's'SB which makes connections with, the tntemrban cars. Jira GHbaugb Is the -fireman. He also serves as switchman and brafceman, when one is riecessnry.--.BIr. II. S.

The engine and coach are not to treated. The engines are small, as has been stated, but are not narrow gange. A comparison of .the amonnt of "coal consumed by one of:these engines with that used by a large,, modern locomotive is interesttaj:. Sixteen" hundred pounds of coal are used each day on this road, while from 18 to 20 tons Is the amount ordinarily consumed by a roeant more than words can express to th« section traversed by It.

Never Had an Accident/ Three,or. four things stand .out as worthy of notice. First, the train has never been operated on Sundays. (One trip was made about two years ago to the town of Donalds in order to catch a train that a patient might be rushed to the hospital). Second, In that nine years of service not one .person;has- been injured, either employee, passenger or tramp, mor has the engine ever i been turned since being placed on the i tracks of the Due West railroad. The fact that the engine is always headed toward Dne West may be dne to tho fact that It was jnst placed that way In the beginning or it may denote'loy- alty toward 'the place that Is "hoine, sweet home." . Anyway, the engi*i ha§ never turned Its back on tbs town and the chances svre that the town will never turo a cold shoulder to the railroad; Lastly, although, perhaps that should have keen stated first, the railroad owe* nothing and yet It pays no dividends, 'it is self sustaining, and.

Philadelphia, May 11--Xkcn are ·trong Inmeauons that Senator Wil- Uaui O. Sproul will sweep PanuayUa- iiitt. for the Republican nomination for GoVarnor at tlie Primary Election next T'ucadny by 11 majority ranging anyu-hero from 60,000 to £0,000. ll Llierc la. a largo turnout of rotan, tlie Sliroui lead may. even exceed tke 80,000 mart. . V Those in charge of Senator Spnral'i headquarters here claim that not one o£ his three opponent* wiil b« able to carry more than nve or six araaU counties, and even these may be put In thu doubtful column. The people of this state seemed to rally to Senator Sproul's support right from the outset of his candidacy. Oif- ferent reasons may'be attribattd far this general response. The twenty years' service of Senator Sproiil In the tipper branch of tic Pennsylvania General, Assembly has given him a prominence of a state- wida character. 'During that period he fathered some af the most Important pieces of legislation now on the Pennsylvania statute hooks," and, of course, this is responsible for the general feeling that he fully measures up to the requirements'of a chief executive of a state as important as Poncsylvonla. Finally, It Is more than probable that the large army of Be- publicans throughout the commonwealth want to see In the chief executive's chair a high-class man, (me who would not stoop to small thines, anri who would at all tiroes place th« fair name and fame af his native state aborc personal political ambition and selr-affgrandlzemcnt. Tims it Is that the people want Sproul for Governor, and the Republicans next Tuesday Intend to nominate him by a aright? large vote. People'! Real BuilrwM. On account of the war, SeMtor Sprtral has not attempted to canvass the various counties of th* state. B has felt all along that die qwction of winning the war Is the 'real bwt- ces* before, every American at tn* present moment and essentially before the people and government of Fezm sylvonia; tint this Is no time for a man to peddle political wmrcs in an effort to reach on office. He has, therefore, contented hlmMU with making a few speeches and visiting sections of the state, rntber than tak- mg in every county. Even on th«M trips. Senator Spioal frequently has forgotton that he Is munlng for Gov ernor, aod confined most of his s re marUi to the titanic Btroggle now jo- ing on ID Europe. For instance, In his sf'Wch nt Lancaster, be said: "Without this state. Its men and women and what thty product, this country wooJd sot be In thte war overnight. Yes, wlthoat the co-operation of a doKen counties in Pennsylvania, half of ttiera In the east and half of them In th« west, America would be balptees In this great stri£jtle. If we do not win this war and dictate the terms of peace. It will be onr fate, !J tt shall not indeed be wnrae, to be resolved into an armed camp for the perf generation at least" No Time For Ranting. On this same occasion, Senator Sprooipuid bus respecti to candidate* for office who are running up and down the state trying to stir m toe people on false Issues Inspired by selfish ambitions. He stxmmea up this condition and type of politicians ae fallows: "This Is no time for pcttitocgtnc and ranting. The people are not interested in small matters nor imall men, it Is timo for Action. We are hunting elephants today, net TMt«e." A srartfyfag fenture of Senator Sproai s aindidacy is tbe general support it has recelvad from the Inflnen- tlal newspaper* of Pennaylvanla. For Instance, avory newspxper in Pbltadel- pbla tbat has declared Ita*)f for a caii- didhte for Governor is heart and *oul for Setfator Sproai. and the same' condition eilBts in Pittabnrgh, 9crantott, Wllkes-Barre, Harrisburg and otter populous muDldpallttet. The editors of these publications, men of learning, x good Jndgroent and dlscercment evidently recognize in Senator Bproul n candidate for Governor who measures up fully to the requlrenmits of thai great office at a time ae crucial as (lie present, one who woiild be n Governor unshackled by any poUttcal faction and free and independent to nerve the people to the best of his ability. Aid to Farmers.
