HAGAN'S ICE CREAM EAT HAGAN'S EVERY DAY NO WORK EXPECTED ON MONONGAHELA PIKE Another attempt to award contracts for the construction of a section of the Monongahela pike and the Bur-pettstown-Hickorv ranA hv the sinta highway department seemingly has met with the same results as earlier efforts. Only one bid was received for the Burgettstown-Hickory road at a cost of approximately per mile for its construction.

No bids were received for the Monongahela pike. Ic I is not likely that the contract will be let for the Burgettstown-Hickory road at the figures presented in the single bid received. The absence of competitive bidders on that road and the fact that contractors have not evinced any interest in the construction of the Monon- igahela pike is an apparent indication that road builders appreciate the present situation and believe that this is not a good time for highway con immmnimnnsm More struction. The county commissioners, aware of the difficulties in the way of new road work, are making ready to re pair and improve the county roads already built and expect soon to begin work near Burgettstown, using on this improvement a quantity of "red dog" that is available in that section. Their attention has been called to a self-feeding truck or wagon unloader of the caterpillar type that can be used in work of this character and which is said to accomplish-wonders, not alone doing splendid and speedy work but greatly reducing the number of helpers required.

Within a few days a committee of the commissioners expects to inspect Power Less is GOOD A MECHANIC AS I AS A MAN IS QUESTION Can a woman be as good a mechanic las a man; This question is being asked by local automobile men as a result of the appearance here of Miss Luella Bates, demonstrator and testor of trucks for the Four Wheel Drive Auto Clin-tonville, Wis. Miss Bates is mak- ing a four month tour of the country calling on FWD Distributors the capacity of an expert mechanic, demonstrator and tester. "Certainly, women make as good mechanics as men said the girl driver. "Didn't the war prove that women could step into virtually ev ery branch of industry and successfully replace men, Durisg the war Ithe FWD plant hired 150 women, all of whom successfully completed a course in automobiling. All of these have left however, except myself.

I like the business and expect to stay in it. The other women undoubtedly would have become as good mechanics as the men if thev had remained. Among her duties Miss Bates will inspect all trucks in the territory she covers rendering a report on any ad- justments or repairs necessary to the local dealer, The Speedway Garage. she will also instruct drivers and owners on the modern methods of inspection Since she entered the automobile business Miss Bates has tested more than 200 trucks covering an average of seventy-five miles with each. Included in her program here is a series of stunts and driving exhibitions.

After the first day's eloquence and the second day's work, affairs have shaped themselves to the extent that the convention is about readv now to hear who wants to be president. It has been arranged that the nomination speeches will be made before the platform is adopted, but it is not thought candidates will be chosen until all Ithe planks are proper. ly nailed down and the party gets aboard.

That the name of William Gibbs Mc Adoo will be presented to the conven tion is now an assured fact and the honor of nominating him will go to Burris A. Jenkins, a Kansas minis ter. Chairman Robinson worked himself up to a fever pitch yesterday in his attack on the Republican platform and his defense of the League of Na tions. Following as it did the "won derful oration" of Senator Cummings it fell kind of flat on the ears of the country, despite the fact that Mr. Kobinson did his best to put over some broadsides against the G.

O. P. pavilion. In closing his master ful discourse, the chairman said, of the opposite party's platform: "It is an amazing jumble of ambig uities, inconsistencies, evasions mis representations straddles and sland ers. 'The Republican convention have displayed the courage clearly to declaie its policy but it was frank on only one subject; namely in singing a hymn of hate for the President." Open warfare over prohibition the Irish question and other troublesome issues of the Democratic platform be gan in a storm-swept committee hearing while in private the leaders continued their negotiations for a settlement to keep the hostilities from spreading to the floor of the convention itself.

Last night the platform sub-com mittee had not yet begun actual prep- principles and there were r.o surface indications that their task had been made any simpler by the day's pub lic arguments or private consulta tions A momentary defeat was adminis tered the Bryan dry legions in the full platform committee when a par liamentary battle for position on the spakers' list was decided in favor of the wets by a vote of 27 to 25. The general indication however, was to discount the significance of the vote, which was taken to decide which side should speak first. The clash came as soon as the com mittee took up the prohibition issue. Mr. Bryan and W.

Bourke Cochran, of New York, leading- the wets, wrangled for half an hour on the point. Chairman Glass finally inter. rupted to say that it appeared that no one "wanted to talk" so the ques-tion would be passed over. "Ihis is not a time for Mr. Bryan shouted.

The chair is not retorted Senator Glass, uoundinsr the table. and resents the suggestion." DEEDS RECORDED OF INTEREST LOCALLY May 1, 1920 William T.

Monongahela, Pa. 21 80 JURORS ARE TO BE DRAWN FOR EACH WEEK In an effort to have a better attend ance of jurors during the two weeks of the August term of criminal court, the court has made an order that 80 sames he drawn from the wheel to serve for one week beginning August 16, and 80 more to serve for one week beintiing August 23. Heretofore it has been the custom to draw 80 names to serve during the entire two weeks of criminal court, and often there are not enough jurors to dispose of the cases.

It is believed that this might be remedied by requiring the jurors to serve only one week. The grand jury will be drawn to meet on Aug ust 9. The names will be drawn from the jury wheel on Saturday morning by the sheriff and jury commission- era.

1 lS), by McCiure Newspaper Syndicate-1 The two cottages were exatly ulike. Bach bad a froup porch with a vine-covered trellis, and each had a bay window on tite side, one facing east, the other west. They stood aide by side. The neighbors called them the Twin Collages. were connected by a narrow passige extending from tlie west side of one to the east side of the other.

But the tenunts of these cottages were not neighborly. Mrs. Goodwin of the east hay window and Mr. Goodwin of the west bay window never spoke to each other. The brothers had built these house, had begun their married life together, but their wives had quarreled years ago, and now Mr.

Avery Coodwin and Mrs. Emery Goodwin lived each a 'one. nursing the old grievance. As fate would have it. Miss Natha- Goodwin came to spend a summer vacation with her untie.

"Isn't It funny. Uncle Avery?" she asked. "Mrs. Goodwin's nephew Is spending his vacation with her." "It doesn't touch my sense of humor," her uncle answered, coldly. "We met ou the sidewalk in front," Nathalie went on, "and we really had to speak, though of course we're not cousins." "Certainly not," with emphasis.

"His name is Donald Prior, and he's floorwalker for Stebbins Porter, hut he wants to lie an artist. He has vncatioii over the' dull season, and he' 9 paiuting for all he's worth." "Humph I should think he gave yon li's whole history." "Perhaps I was to blame," Nathalie confessed, with a Mush. "1 was so interested that 1 asked him one or two "Well, you have a hlogrnphy now. Yon complete auto-wou't need to iisk any more." Nathalie whs a little aftaid of her stern uncle. "Uncle," she asked one morning, "who owns that connecting passage?" "It belongs to both of us." "WhHt is there In it?" "Rats' nests and spiders, probably.

I never go in." "Does Mrs. Goodwin go in?" i aou Know wuere sue goes, rroo- ably not." "If there are spiders," Nathalie pur sued, twisting a duster. "I ought to go In An hour later she slipped the rusty bolt and. dustpan in hand, entered the passage, shuddering a little In antkl-pution of the spiders. "My word!" she cried.

"Donald Prior has takeu this for a studio." Several mounted canvas were leaned against the walls, sod one picture, not quite finished, stood upon an easel. "Why!" she breuthed, "it's me!" A bolt slid, the east door opened, and the doorway framed the athletic figure and bronzed face of DiMiald Prior. "Hello!" he exclaimed. Nathalie blushed and held out the extenuating dustpan. "I came here to look for spiders." she faltered.

"Pray don't aHlogize. We have equal rights here, you see," glancing around at the confusion of paint tube and brushes; "my aunt doesn't like a litter." "Doeau't she? I wish my uncle didn't." He laughed. "So I paint here." "But you have" "I have dared to attempt that," he acknowledged. "You see, I had everything I needed except a model." "I guess you have succeeded, only you have flattered me." "Ion't you think you may be sitting there agHln and wearing the mauve cown?" '()h, no. My uncle woultln ap prove.

It would he quite wrong now I know." Nathalie put on her little air of dig nity. "I must go hack to my uncle. He may need me." "Isn't he well?" "No, 1 feel anxious about him." "Really? What seems to be the mat ter "General debility. He has no appe tite. I've had a course In domestic science, but he calls the things I make He is pining for some old-fashionwl cooking pancakes and things." "Is that so? Now, my aunt can cook for the immortal gods." Nathalie glanced at the lithe, strong figure and did not contradict him.

"She dotes on the old-fashioned cooking. I think we'll be having pan cakes for breakfast." "Oh!" said Nathalie wistfully. "I'll tell you what I'll do. Do you think we might venture? Jut leave that door unbolted and when your uncle's at breakfast I'll appear to him with hot paueakes In a covered dish. He wouldn't floor nie?" "Oh.

no; he isn't strong enough for that, and perhaps if you took the cover off quick, he wouldn't want to." "We'll try It then." Will It seeui too much like a fairy story if I write that Mr. Goodwin's craving for old-fashioned pancakes was stronger than the sullen pride that nursed an ancient grudge, that in two weeks' time Mrs. Emery Qoodwln was cooking for four, that Mr. Good win became convinced of Donald's tal ent, so that the young man has given floorwalklog and Is giving his whole attention to art, and that Nathalie has a permanent position as model for the artist?

Bids for the resurfacing of the Fin-leyville-Library road and the Washington-West Middletown road have been requested by the county controller, to be opened on July 2, and it hoped to proceed with work on these roads at an early date.
