Susquehanna County - The boy or man who drinks, gambles, and whiles away valuable time in indolence and idleness, will reap hours of regret and remorse in later life. True manliness is not built that way. Paste that in your hat young man. The girl or young lady who permits the company of such a young man runs a great risk of reaping years of sorrow and heartache. Better "look a little out," as to the company you keep. Paste this on your mirror, young woman. AND The Commencement exercises of the Pennsylvania State College will be held at State College, PA, Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, June 12, 13 and 14. AND Wheelmen of bicycles are happy because the new law gives them the same rights on the roads as wagons, and classes their machines as vehicles, and at the same time they are somewhat exasperated to learn that they must pay toll on all pikes. But the law classing the wheels as vehicles gives the road companies the right to charge toll and the riders must pay as for a horse and wagon. They claim that there is no wear upon the road by reason of the wheels passing over it and that the wear is all upon the machines. They must, therefore, bear both the toll and wear.
