tripped and fell striking his neck
against a leg of an up-turned meat

came uncomfortably near cutting his

attention and is healing rapidly at tills
The construction of good waterworks

A notice highly complimentary fo
Robt. Clark brother1 of Mrs. J. A.
Eipolin appeared in a tWllkesbnrro
Pennsylvania paper tlio last week.
Mr. Clark is serving ns chorister in a
big revival meeting which Billy Sun-
day is holding in that city and which
is creating wide-spread interest Mr.
Clark was engaged in the big mectlm!
at the time his piotlier naa injured by
a fall which resulted In her death a
few days later. His work as chorister
meant so much to the success of the
meeting that Mr. Clark remained in
wie meeting tiann; mat It Intel ever
been the desire uf his aged Christian
mother that he use hi voice in the ser-
vice of tlm Master and in her last mo-
ments though with a trui mother's
love she wanted to seu hor boy yet Bhe
was supremely happy in the thought
that he was about his Ivtther's business.

TIES FOR BEAVER RAILROAD ARRIVE.
Five carloads of railroad ties arrived
In Forgau Monday and arc being scat-
tered along tho right of way of the
Beaver railroad. We understand that
this is the first installment of fifty car-
loads which are being shipped at the
rateof II o cars a week and that thu
railroad company expect to "fonco"
their right of way with ties In an en-
deavor to put in posts strong enough
to prevent freighters from tearing down
the fences unci UMng tho grade as a
w.igon road. We wero also informed
that in order to make n "fence" sulll-
uiently strong to hold these freighters
out the company have ordered out
several hundred tons of IK) pound rail-
road rails and expect to use these rails
Instead of barb wiro.
They will probably depart from the
customary mode of building fences and
will lay the ties and steel along the
center of the grnde. Of course it is
foolish to presume Hint a real train of
"klvored kars" will c.uno steaming
down that "fonce" In tho near future.
We'd advise freighters to stay nil tho
grade at nny rate. You never can
tell what ono of thoso "critters" might
do. liven Forgan's beloved W. F. it
N. W. might get a good stnrt in coin-
ing down the grade into that burg and
fail to more than' hesitate until the
brakes wero set on thu south side of

CAN'T DO OUR OWN "RIPPING."
The Hkrald received a modest (?)
request the past week and that from n
uou-subjcriber to publish n lengUiy
article ripping n certain individual up
tho back and proclaim to tho world nt
large that "So-and-So" Is n liar and a
scoundrel because of a purely personal
grievance batneeu the two parties and
which difference was of no particular
interest or concord to anyone except
tlm aggrieved n n it "So-and-So"
CJiiutlng the Supply Republican "We
refused for the same reason that we
never molest a skunk We have troub-
les or our own "
The IIerh.ii is always ready and
willing to diwote Its space to any mat-
ter of generul interest to its rendu is
but if wo were to attempt to give space
to the airing of personal grievances
and would publish all the mean things
that we are requested to publish from
time to time about thn country the
peoule the business concerns and in-
dividuals wo wouldn't have space left
for anything else. We couldn't tell
the outside world about tho wonderful
development of Henyer county or the
splendid prospects for another bumper
crop during 1015. Wo would even
have to elinilm.tR nny meiitlurPof-tlie
fine waterworks and electric light sya-
tems which are being installed in Bea-
ver at the present time and there
would be no space left In which to tell
the peoplo nbout the arrival ol material
for the building of Beaver's new rail-
road and of actual construction work
Bo long ai the grievances sought to
be aired through the columns of the
Hkrm.h are not of general importance
we shall refuse to give them space.
As a general thing those who make re-
quests for such publications are not
even subscribers to this paper and do
not contribute to its moral or financial
support. They are too cowardly to
meet the person face to face and tell
him what thoy think or him but choose
to slay him through the paper and let
the editor take the blame They even
go so far ai to request that their real
namo bo omitted from tho article and
that it be signed "A Reader" "Josh-
ua" or tome other fictitious cognomen.
Pertoni who mako such requests
must think that the editor has no per-
sonal grievances f If wo wonted to thrust
such things upon our readers wn could
probably rip u few people up the back
on our own account but It was never
the idea of tho editor of the Heram)
that our paper should bo used to air
personal affairs. Unless a grievance
we felt was of such a naturo as to be
of interest to the public we did not re-
sort to the columns of our paper to tell
Tom Dick and Harry what we thought
of them. Wo were always too busy
telling the news and boosting for Bea-
ver and Beaver county.
If our readers or others have any-
thing in the way of news we are glad I
to get it nnd urge you to send It In but

hope of benefitting her health.
Mrs. Wilson did not anpear to bo In
any more serious condition than usual
and her death wa sudden nnd unex-
pected. "She did not complnln of feel-
ing any worse but inorely laid her head
oack on the pillow olosed her eyes
her lip quivered flight ly nnd without
a struggle her spirit took Its ll.ght as
peacefully as ir she had Just fallen

T'. arrival at Forgan Monday of five
"'"'d8 ' railroad ties for the Beaver
railroad seepn to have caused resi-
dents of that burg to have seventeen
conniption Ills ir wo are to believe tho
reports that are current. Everybody
was calling everybody else a liar and
saying ' I thought you assurred me
(leaver's railroad was dead when you
persuaded mo to Invest In Forgan?"
Too bad fellows! In futtiro when you
want to know nbout Beaver's business
suppoao you try consulting Beaver cit-
izens. If wishing a thing dead or
working tooth and toe-nail to kill It
could accomplish anything Beaver's
railroad would hovo been dead long
ago so far ns Forgan was concerned.
Wo can't blame them so much for that
for It Is pretty evident that either the
railroad or Forgan que must die but
you can put It down in your note book
whenever a citizen of Forgan or any-
ono else tells you that Beaver's rail-
road is dead he Is talking through hli
hat. That railroad Is just about the
Hvesl thing ovor right now. At any
rate. it Is a pretty lively corpse.
