With frequent showers and a continual drizzle, the day was very damp and dismal. Never theless the town was alive with railroad men, stockholders, spectators, and friends of the new invention. After the demonstrations were over, all were equally enthusiastic over the future of the Stark coupler and the money invested. The special train furnished by the Souther Railway and composed of an engine, a coach, and two box cars carried a number of the witnesses to the Junction. The first tests were made on the east leg of the Y, a track of about twenty degree curve. The emban...

LOVE MAGIC IN VOIDS OF SOW By DOROTHY DOUGLAS. (Copyright, 1912. by Associated Literary! Press.). Sunderland took his soft hat from the hall tree and adjusted it to his head with a considerable degree of precision. His movements for the moment were all more or less undecided because of the weighty problem that held his mind captive. He spent a few more moments over the angle of his hat, then went out into the busy streets. Naturally Sunderland’s footsteps took him in the direction of his favorite haunts, the old second-hand shops. He stood aimlessly looking over the musty and dusty contents of the windows and all the time he was asking himself the question,, “Shall I ask Enid to marry me ?’’ Sunderland’s fingers were unconsciously running through a stack of| well-worn music and he suddenly realized that if Enid had possessed even a talent for the lightest of music he could have care more for her. He was not a musician, nor even a critic, but he felt that his borne would be incomplet...

MIDDLETOWN WEEKLY Volume I. ANNUAL BANQUET North Shenandoah Fruit Grow* ers Association’s Annual Ban* quet and Exhibit a Success (From the Strasburg News) Friday and Saturday,the North Shenandoah Fruit Growers’ Association gave an exhibit of apples and apple products in the Shenando Building such as has never been seen in this community and we challenge that it cannot be excelled in any other section of the country. Apples! Apples! Galore! and the finest vari eties and specimen. Truly, it was a good indication that the world is growing better, for when a throng such as witnessed the exhibit obeys the placards of “Hands Off.” in other words “Forbidden Fruit,” leaving untouched apples that are apples, and apples among apples, then it looks like we are far ahead of Adam and Eve when it comes to the control of our appetites and the sense of a higher law. The exhibit consisted of thirty bushel boxes of apples, and about two hundred plates. These were displayed on two tables in the middle...
