The New York 'Weekly Iribune in conceded to be the best cily paper published in this country. The MESSENOZB is acknowledged to be the best local paper published in this county. The above statements are hard facts. And now for the greatest offer ever made to the people of the county: To every new subscriber to the MEESEKOEB, who pays $1.50 in advance, we will send the Sew York Weekly Tribune and MESSENGHB for one year. To all old subscribers, who pay np all arrearages, and one year in advance, we will send the MZSSEKGEB and Tribune one year. This is a rare opportunity to get the two best papers in the Country for the price of one. Now is the time lo subscribe.

THE price of hay in foreign markets has dropped several dollars per ton; which fact affects our local market. THERE was a gathering of the Democratic clans here on Saturday. They want to swallow the Populists. OKE cannot always judge from appearances. A man may have a sandy complec- tion and yet have no sand. PHEASAKTS and quail may now be shot legally; but a good many sportsmen can't shoot them legally or any other way. THERE will be a reunion of the survivors of the 67ih Pa. Vol. Association at the U.

"WHOM the gods would destroy they first make mad," is a saying that some of onr politicians should put some place where they will fall over it a couple of times a day. A VOTE for an Independent candidate for Sheriff is half a vote for the Democratic .candidate; and this is •not a good year to —pat'. Democrats in office in Indiana county A GOOD many people are a trifle "short" during these hard times. Even the days are shorter than a couple of months ago.

A BUSHEL of corn makes four gallons o whisky, which retails at $16. Out of this the government gets $3, the railroads the manufacturer $4, the vender $7, the farmer 60 cents, and the drinker gets the jim-jams. IT is said that typhoid fever is raging in the penitentiary. That institution is a gooc place to stay away from, and the efforts now made in this county to send numerous o: our citizens there is in bad taste, unless they deserve it richly. THE indications are that the people of the county don't take kindly to the dancing platform on the fair grounds. Many religiout assemblies have passed resolutions concerning the institution, The platform on tht fair ground must go, is what the people say. GEN. HASTISGS appears to be in it for the Republican Goveinmental nomination. Already the counties of Berks, Juniata, Wyoming and Carbon have instructed for him. It looks like commencing the campaign a little early, but the early bird usually catches the worm. LIGOSIKE township, Westmoreland county, was raided Monday night by thievee, who slole 100 pounds of honey from Henry Swank, 25 buehels of corn from J. N. Ulerick, all of Mrs. Scott's cabbage, and a 250 pound hog from George Weimer. The rob- aere were tracked as far as New Florence. iTHE abutments for the new iron bridge across the creek at the McElhose mill, in Jrant township, are completed and the work ,s pronounced first class in every respect. The material used was the best and the workmanship of a high quality. The iron is on hand and the bridge will soon be completed. A GOOD rule for testing an oven is given bv a celebrated French cook: Put a piece if white paper into the oven; if it blacken* or blazes up, the oven is too hot; if it turns- igbt brown it is fit for pastry; if light yel- ow, it is right for sponge cake; if dark yel- ow, the o\en is ready for heayy, rich cake and bread. THE case of Geo.

The amended license law went into afiect on October 1. Under it either of the con- racling parties to a marriage can obtain o icense in any county, and use it in any other county, in which they deaire to bt married. We may now look for an increase n the license business. There is a lot oJ girls too bashful to go into the Register's of- ice to obtain a license, and they, will now say "yes" to their lovers. THE Democrat, of this place, last week attempted to excuse the Commissioner oi Pensions for suspending the pensions of Jhe old soldiers; but it is a hard job, and the ed- lor rnakts a sorry failure. The course ol ihe Democratic demonstration cannot be condoned. It is an insult to the loyal people of he county and the persons who attempt tu excuse it only makes a mess of it. Better let it drop, brother Sansom. WHttE working on the saw-mill Friday, Mr. Archie Fuller, of this place, met with an accident which might have caused his dealh. He went to cut a knot ofl a log with double-bitted axe, when the weapon struck something overhead and came, down with terific force on top of his head. One bit oi the axe is kept sharp for cutting, while the other is used for rough work, cutting bolts, etc, and is very dull. Fortunately it wab the dull bit which struck him, but as it was a gash a couple of inches long was cut in [he ekul). Had it been the sharp .one he would have been brained. A COUPLE sons of E. Work and Ed. Hamill, of Hamil, this county, were on their way lome from the west a few days ago. They stopped in Chicago to see the Exposition After they had looked at the show for a few days, they started to take a train for home. They were on a crowded street car and Mr. ilamil was carrying a large and heavy grip. There was no room inside and Mr. Hamil siood on the steps. A car going in the opposite direction came alongflnd struck Mr. Hamil's grip, knocking him off the car and njuring him severely. He was taken to the lospital and wiil resume his journey home as soon as he is recovered. AKKA M. VICTOE, of Uniontown, sued he Pennsylvania Railroad Company for 5-50,000 damages. When the testimony was all in Judge Ewing refused to allow the case :o go to the jury and recorded a verdict for the company, the rule being thai a person cannot claim damages for injuries received in getting off of a moving train. There is a notice on the door of every car to the effect that passengers must not attempt to leave the car before it comes to a full stop. If any one neglects the notice and attempts to leave the car before it stops, and was injured in the operation, he cannot receive damages for injuries sustained. PHYSICAL training is engaging the attention of young women everywhere, and the following is one of the latest and best exercises used by young women who aspire to a Delsarte training: Fill a 'large tub with water and place obliquely in it, so that the lower edge shall rest in the bottom of the tub and the upper one lean against the opposite side, a corrugated piece of wood, covered with zinc. Then take some sort of cloth, souse in water and rub briskly on the board. A little soap will lessen the friction and render the exercise more gentle. And then, in order to put in use other portions of the system, after sousing and rubbing the cloth, take it out and twist it until all the water is expunged. Tbe exercise is all the better if taken on Monday, HEBE is some good seasonable advice from the Jamestown, (Pa.) Sentinel: "Daring the school days parents should be very careful of how they speak ol teachers before the children. If there is any fault to be found with a teacher by parents, it should be talked of in private and not in the hearing of the children. They are wonderful imitators and if they hear anything of the kind, they very naturally will do the same many times, injuring both the teacher and the pnpils most. Teachers, as a rale, are competent, or they would not be employed. They have a gieat responsibility on their shoulders and parents should do all in their power to help them instead of to hinder The school year has just begun, andit would be well to weigh these subjects carefully, co-operate with Hie teachers, wsit^he schools/ anaV«iConnia( the Montgomery v Scheme: Workel Btitier Last Week. Butler Citizen. Two young men of the world did a good business in Butler for the week ending with Wednesday of this week. They came here with money and fished for more and they got it—got something over $4,300 more. They wanted to buy a farm, and some strange intuition took them down to the farm of old Nicholas Mangel in Penn township. Mangel showed them the farms o that vicinity, they showed him their money and friendly relations were established. The young men stopped in Butler anc hired their rigs here and on Wednesday morning drove down to Mangel's and showec old Nicholas a game of cards—commonly called "three card monte." It was a new game lo the old man and he was delighted with it, and his delight bloomed into ecstacy when they lold him he had won $5,000 from them. Oh 1 what a game. But hold ! The man who wine must show that he means business. That he could have paid had he lost. He must "cover" the $5,000 with ?5, 000 more lo secure it. So they jumped into their buggies and drove to Butler, and Nicholas got 82,500 ol his hard earned oil-royalty money from one bank and $2,500 of the same from another, and they drove back to the farm; and on the way the whole §10,000 was put in a nice iin box with a lock on it, and given to Nicholas, and he took it home, and the young men droye back to Butler, put up their rigs and quickly disappeared. One of the bankers suspected t romMangel's manner that something was wrong, and after he paid him the money he followed him down to (he Pitlsburg bridge and saw him get into the buggy with the stranger, then ie reported the matter to the police; and there was a hasty driye out to Mangel's, so hasty that they passed the strangers on their way back to Butler. The box was broken open, it contained two bits of dirty wood wrapped in a paper, and a letter advising the old man not to gamble any more. When Mangel took his money from his coat pocket to put it in the box part ol it— some $600—stuck to his pocket, and he ought to use a part of that in baying anews- japer or two. The money changed hands in the wood? on the other side of the second toll gate; Vlangel walked the rest of the way home, and the two strangers drove to Butler. Mangel was so sure the §10,000 was in he tin box that he at first refused to let~lhe officer open it, or even to come to Butler with them. Death of George TocUer.. George Tucker, of Plumville, died on Fri day, October 6, aged 63 years, 7 months and days. For many years deceased had been a prominent business man in that place and las been in the mercantile business over 20 rears. Some five years ago he retired from ictive business and gave his attention to hif 'arms. He was a good business man and lad accumulated considerable wealth. He was the father of four children, Charles, ?hoebe, married to H. K. Miller, of California ; May, married to John T. Stuehell, of this place, and Hattie,married to Wm. G. Berber, of California. Having started in life ooor, he well knew how hard it was to make a start in life, and he gave his children landsome sums of money when they went out into the world to carve out their own brtuoes. He was a useful man in munity, and no deserving persons asked his assistance in vain. His promise was as good as his bond and his honesty was pronounced. His wife was a daughter of James Bothell, and survives him. Six brothers ind sisters are still living, Harriett Johns on, aged 84; May Jordan, aged 80; Matilda Jerr, 78 ; Lucinda Spencer, 75 ; Ashabel fucker, 73; and Adaline Miller, G7. Mis- parents located in Plumville over 75 years ago on the farm now occupied by Johnston Miller. He had been in bad health for many months and was confined, to his bed more ban six weeks, the immediate cause of his leath being heart disease. The funeral took place on Sabbath last and was the largest seen in that country ince that of the late Jacob Weamer. The ervices were conducted by Eev. Pryor, of he M. E. charcb. His estate consists ol ome 500 acres of land and much personal >roperty. He left no will, saying that the aw would make a proper distribution of his property. Soldiers' Children. The following is a correct copy of Act No. 17, passed by the last Pennsylvania Legis- ature and approved by the Governor April 8,1893, and shows that Pennsylvania has not forgotten the debt she owes her soldiers. Relative to the admission and instruction jf children of soldiers of the late war of the lebellion in the common schools of districts mtside of which their parents guardians or ithers entitled to their custody may reside. Sec. 1. Be it enacted etc., etc., That any :hild or children of any person who was a ioldier in the service of the United States n the late war of the Rebellion being or who shall temporarily or otherwise (be) within any echool district of the commonwealth shall upon application be entitled to admission and instruction the same as resi- lent children in the proper common school such district and notwithstanding such child or chilnren may have or shall come nto said district for the purpose of attendance at such school and the residence of he parents guardian or other person or per- ons entitled by law to the custody of such ihild or children be in another district. Approved the ISih day of April 1893. E. E. PATHSOV. lulled A Big Bear. Just after 12 o'clocfe-Monday night Hiram ,nd John Wai.te, of Water street, Hunting- on cpnny, went to a neighboring mountain for coons. Neither of the boys is over 16. ?hey carried a double-barrel shot gnu and were accompanied by a dog. The dog soon racked a coon, which led the boys a merry chase almost to the top of the mountain, where it was treed by the dog. Hiram, he eld er of the boys, strapped the gan on iis back and started to climb the tree. He lad ascended only about ten feet when a arge black bear appeared on the scene, liram jumped to the ground and with his ifother started on a run for their home, about half a mile distant. The bear which lad killed the dog with one blow of his paw, tarted after the boys down the mountain. Che boys were too frightened to-attempt to how their pursuer fight, and so they con- inued to run. The bear gaye the boys a close chase until they reached the house, when they succeeded in -getting into the loor just as bruin came up. Mr. Wsite aroused by the boys' cries soon ascertained be trouble and with a farm hand be attacked be bear with an axe and killed it. Tbe >ear was a full-grown female and weighed .70 pounds. Annual Trip to Bliododendron Park on Saturday, October Uth. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company has ust completed arrangements for itSEannaal excursion to Lloydsville, to be run on Saturday, October. 14th. A special train will eave Pittsburg, and stop at the principal ntermediate stations between that place and Altoona. v The ride over the mountains from this atter point is exceedingly beautiful and in- eresting. The acme ot perfection in mountain scenery, however, is reached at Rhododendron Park, where tbe -foliage and he adjacent country in the antnmn coloring is simply wonderful. This place is kept in a slate of natural beauty the year round. Mature in all its wildness and in modern cultivation is preserved with a most picturesque effect.

Are Tired ol it Already The blowing of the water ivorks whistle at 5:30 each morning is creating a howl of disapprobation in the West End ; also some lively kicking in this town. Just why the council of the West End authorized it we don't know ; possibly the object is to waken people who want breakfast in time lo go to work at 7 o'clock. Be that as it may, there is a very vigorous kick against it, and many of the people would rather chip in and purchase alarm clocks for such of the citizens as lesire to get up at 5:30. Road Views. Simon Fisher, Clemson Aul and James Chambers, viewers appointed by the court o view a public road in North Mahoning p., from a walnut tree oh lands of John Walton, on the Plumville and Marchand road to a point at or near a small hickory ree on lauds of John Best,on the Marchand and Trade City road, and vacate the road eading from Plumville and Marcband road o the Trade City road, will attend to their duties on Tuesday, Oct. 17, commencing at he walnut tree designated at 9 o'clock A. M. gigi^ftssa^ipsis^ Two weeks ago we said to the people through the MES SENGER that we would have new buckwheat flour in the mar ket before it would reach many of its readers. And true to our promise we placed buckwheat flour in every grocery store in Indiana, before very many people were aware that the sea son for buckwheat cakes was here. We have been tearing away, too, ever since in fact, just rushing things to fill the orders that have come pouring in from all quarters for our celebrated buckwheat flour. Grain of all kinds seems to be moving more freely now Wheat, buckwheat, rye and oats are coming in quite brisk We find the buckwheat crop to be much larger and of a better quality than we were led to believe by many of the re ports received just previous to its harvest. We are still in the market for ten thousand bushels and will pay the high est market price the market will afford. Bring in your buck wheat early and don't wait until the season is over and then reflect on the mills for not being able to handle it after the season passed. Hill so Through the' AEotions. The following dispatch from Harrisburg udicatcs that the People's Party will stand up to be knocked down again : " The Peo- 'le's Party of Pennsylvania intends to stand up on election day and be counted, its Chairman, Mr. Thompson, of Indiana, hiving to- lay filed the necessary nomination papers D the office of the Secretary of the Common wealth. The papers were signed by 3,600 lersons, a large number of whom are yotert n Indiana county, in which the organiza- ion musters the greater strength according o the voting population than in any other :ounty in the State." A "Breezy Time" Expected. The last Republican primary campaign is ikely to make plenty of business for the ourt. The cases up to date are the Commonwealth, Jno. W. Books, prosecutor, .gainst E. Walker Smith, Esq., James Lewis, ). W. Simpson and A. S. Campbell, libel n circulating a certain circular in which iooks is charged with getting money on a mortgage from old Mr. Campbell on false epresentations.

Kiiox Made Happy. The heart of Eev. Knox, formerly pastor of the M. E. church of this place, but now of Beaver, has been made glad by a valua ble gift from Senator Quay. The Senator and Kev. Knox reside on the same block, in Beaver, and are close personal friends. It came to ihe atlention of the Senator that Capt. John Knox was the author of a book giving the history of the campaigns in North America for the years 1757, 1758, 1759 and 1760 and he resolved to purchase a copy for Rev. Knox. The book was published in 1769 and has been out of print since 1869, and the task of seearing a copy was a dfiii- cult one. The Senator left his order with a Philadelphia antiquarian and after dilligent search a copy was procured in London. . It is printed in semi-parchment paper in very large type, and after the lapse of a centuary and a quarter, retains its original color, both paper and ink. It was rebound in the highest artistic style in two volumes and shipped to Senator Quay at Beaver, who presented the same to Kev. Knox, as stated. The author was the grandfather of Eev. Knox. 2aionwealth, U. VY. Bimpson, mu"""K "=="«s =•»"-»<"••- — ,inst Jno. W. Books, charging dispense with quilts and com! with gambling and keeping a shoddy blankets, substituting ie.

Big, strong people can sleep on flint, but it is wisdom to keep the body dressed night and day in loose material, so_as to insure as perfect respiration for the skin as the lungs. The pores are breathing organs. There is decided warmth in quilts and com- fortables, felt, skin rugs, leather, rubber and waterproof, bat such draperies are bad, for the reason that, being impervious, they keep in the emanations from the body; blankets, on the other hand, are loosely woven, and being perforated allow the exhalations to pass through. Delicate people, light sleepers and sick persons are oppressed by the weight of unsanitary bedclothes, which often prevent them from gettinz any .refreshing sleep. If those women who get up in the morning feeling exhausted and tired, will dispense with quilts and comfortables and ' • --«—=•—=— un all-wool the win'dow open top and bottoin, they will soon get rest and recuperation from sleep. THE following from the Dayton News would indicate that much drunkenness prevailed at the fair at that place: "Fair time has always been characterized with more than the usual supply of intoxicants, but last week done them all np. For genuine audacity and unparalled boldness in The drunken line, it was difficult to eclipse. Heretofore some little timidity was used in the imbibing of the ardent, but this time the more public the place the better. On the fair ground in the midst of women and children, on the streets of the town, standing on the sidewalks, sitting in hacks and buggies, indeed anywhere you migU look, all in open day, you could see youog men and old men drinking and under ib influence. This seems a dark picture of aflairs, but many witnesses can testify that it is not overdrawn." There were thousands more people at the Indiana fair than there were at Dayton, yet but very little drunkenness was observed; indeed it was a rare sight to see a drunk person on our streets during the entire week of the fair. B. N. THOMPSON, who was at Chicago last week got home on Saturday night. He thinks the Fair a great success, and has the same opinion of the Chicago thief. He wanted a shave and seeing a respectable looking barber shop, and the sign "Fifteen Cents for a Shave," went in and occupied one of !he chairs. After the shaving operation was completed the affable barber asked him if he would have his neck washed. He answeretf in the affirmative. He was then asked if he wouldn't have some bay rum and powder. Of course he did. When he got off the chair he was informed that_his bill was seventy cents. He paid it, but concluded that a person can be robbed in Chicago without being sand-bagged. THE Presbyterian church at Jacksonville, had a narrow escape from destruction by fire on Sabbath last. During services some one on the outside discovered that the roof was on fire. The intelligence was conveyed to the preacher who asked the congregation to retire for a short time. They did so and extinguished the flames after which services were resumed. The damage was slight. AT a meeting of the officers of the 14th Cavalry Association recently held, it was resolved that no reunion will beheld this year, owing to the absence of many members at Chicago and the depression in business. A full reunion will be held next year at Pittsburg and due notice of the time will be given. Jso. S.

At a recent meeting the rate to Chicago via the Pennsylvania Railroad was definitely decided upon, and will hold good during the remaining excursions of the people's popular coach series: $18,00 from New York $17.00 from Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, and proportionately low rates from other points on the company's division and branches. These rates are the lowest that have yet been authorized, and their ultimate legality has been brought about mainly through the efforts of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. The remaining dates on which this remarkable rate will apply are October llth, 17th and 21st, from New York and Philadelphia, and 7th, 14th and 21st from Baltimore and Washington, when trains will leave the several eastern terminals fully and comfortably equipped with Pennsylvania standard coaches, and all taking advantage of these exceptional opportunities are assured of being amply cared for in transit. The ar riving time in Chicago, early the next afternoon, is on equality frith the fast express trains' schedule, and affords sufficient time for a selection of accommodations for the stay in Chicago. The immense volume of travel now directing itself towards the World's Fair, and the rapidly approaching termination of the Ex position influence the company to place every inducement possible before the public There could be no better way devised to encourage visits to the most marvelously gorgeous exhibition the people of this generation have ever seen. Tickets for Chicago will be sold at the Indiana station On October 14 and 21, at $13.15 for the round trip. Tbe Greatest Sale of the Tear.
