It promises to be t he greatest fair of all that have been held.— Herald. The Franklin correspondent of the Meadville Tribune tells this: A young attorney, who resides in the Third Ward, was awakened the other evening from his slumbers by a noise that seemed (to him) was occasioned by some one endeavoring to enter the house. He raised a window and demanded what was wanted? No answer. Then he got his revolver, and,- after giving due notice, fired at the supposed burglar. Something dropped. The neighborhood was then aroused, and the crowd gathered in to see" the victim. It was there—a poor innocent calf that had been enjoying a meal of apple pealings out of a slop pail. Natural gas is now being used extensively as a fuel in this city.. - Last week the Franklin : rlaiSttPtJas Company's lines were completed in the First Ward and the gas turned in. A large number of residences were connected by service pipes, and all who have tried gas as fuel are highly pleased with it. The convenience, absence of soot, binoke and dirt, and many other advantages over coal will more than compensate for the expense of fixtures and connections necessary to the use of gas. The saving of carpets and of the labor o( lugging coal and kindling are important items in avor of the economy of using gas. It is probable that every residence and business house in the city will use the new fuel.— Franklin Press.. , Tlie Veterans' Kncampmcnt. The encampment of the Mercer County Veterans' Association at Stoneboro, :ast week, is pronounced a success on all lands. The crowds in attendance were very large, and Stoneboro was prepared :o make all comfortable. The decora- .ions were profuse, and all was decked n holiday attire.

JohnTteck, Esq. for many years-past one of our most prominent -and best known citizens, "died at his residence, No 148 Main -street, on Mon day evening last at six minutes, past i o'clock. For nearly a year past Mr Keek's health had been failing some what rapidly, but up till seven or eigh weeks ago he was not supposed to be i much danger of early dissolution. Earl m July he went upon a visit to relatives in Eastern Ohio, and from there went t Pittsburgh and consulted eminent'med cal authority concerning his case. H received but little encouragement, an came home, and was not able to leav his room afterwards A complication o diseases, affecting, vital parts, baffled a efforts of the best medical skill and th most tender nursing. Deceased was a son of Joseph Keck who was one of the earliest settlers i this neighborhood. As near as we ca learn, he came to this county from V 7 est inoreland, in. the summer of 1796, am coaimenced a settlement near th present village of Shenango, two miles so'uth of this place, the Eisenhart farm being part of the settlement. Returnin that fall to Westmorelond to spend th winter in company with Peter and Dan iel Klingensmith, and Col. Andrew Christy, he came back the next sprin, and continued the settlement. His fou brothers, Daniel, Peter, Abram, anc Jacob, came to the same neighborhocK and settled about the same time. Josep Keck subsequently became possessed o a tract of land, which no\y constitutes Keek's addition to Greenville. On: thi tract he erected the first grist mill, whicl 'stood upon the site now occupied bj Mathers & Son's null. The old log house which constituted the residenc connected with the mill property, ant which stood upon the rear of A, D; Gil lespie's lot on Main street, was only torn down a few years ago. Joseph Keek's family consisted of six sons and three daughters. The firs born, David, died in infancy. Elizabeth subsequently Mrs. Moffit, went with hei husband to Illinois many years ago and died there. Jacob died nearly half century ago. Joseph died when iS years of age. William, a well-known citizen of this place, died some fourteen years ago. Esther, now Mrs. Bean, who resides at Wellsville, O., Abram, who resides at Fort Wayne, lud., and Henry who resides in this place, are the onl; members of the family noiv Hying. About 46 years ago the subject of this notice married Terrissa Osborne, o Beaver county, who survives him. The first business venture of deceased was a New Wilmington, Pa. From that place he went to Sheakleyville, and in 1845 he came to this place and took charge of the business of Vincent, Himrod & Co. owners of a. blast furnace, about being erected at that time. After this firm discontinued business deceased took charge of the business of the late Ren- salaer Root, who was engaged in the coal trade and general merchandising After continuing in this position for some years, he became a member of the then well known firm of Achre, Bitten- banner & Co. This firm continued til 1861, when deceased entered into partnership with his brother. Hemy, in the mercantile business unuer the style of J & H. Keck. This firm continued til 1864, when Henry retired from the firm and Geo. Q. Keck, eldest son of deceased took his place in the firm. The firm of John Keck & Son,'continued seven or eight years, when the establishn e t was removed to East Palestine, O., deceased retiring from business. From that time till January, 1882,' deceased was' not engaged in any active business, but at that time was chosen President of the Greenville National Bank, on the retiring of ol Wm. Achre. This position he con tinued to hold till his death. Deceased at one I'raeheld the position ofTustice. ; 6Y-the-:Pfece for-thiborough, and later was chosen school 'director and Chief Burgess.^ For the past 25 years he had been a leading member o! the M. E. Church of this place and had been a member of the is plai offici aal board for many years. A few hours before his death, and after consciousness was gone, he was re-elected a member of the board by the quarterly conference of his church. Deceased was a kind hearted man, a loving husband, a tender father, and a good citizen. His closing hours were peaceful, notwithstanding the fact that during his last illness he was a"great sufferer. He calmly bade the several m-m- bers of his family good-bye, about noon on Monday, and gave evidence that he was fully aware of his condition and that he was prepared for the great change so soon to take place. Beside his widow, deceased leaves three sons, Geo. O., Assistant Cashier of the Greenville National Bank, J. Madison, who has done business in New York for several years past, and W. D., who is a member of the firm of rKeck & Derrickson, of Mercer. Deceased was 69 years and 2 days old at the time of his death. THE FUNERAL. The funeral services occurred at the late residence of the deceased at 3 p. m. yesterday. The principal business places of the town were closed while the services were in progress. The services were conducted by Rev. Blaisdell, his pastor. Rev. Dr. H.W. Roth, of Thiel College led in prayer. Rev. Dr. Britain read the scripture lesson, the ooth Psalm. Brief addresses were delivered by Revs. Blaisdell, and Drs. Brittain and Wheeler. Rev. W. P. Bignell, ofFredonia, N. Y., only arrived in time to reach 'the cemetery before the casket was lowered into the grave. He made a-few touching and appropriate remarks and led in the burial ceremony. The attendance was very large, notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather. The deceased in mcy lis li School Notes. Yes, the school house will be ready londay.

" ~' . ^ At a meeting of the directors of the Greenville National Bank, the foltowin g resolutions were adopted: An all wise Creator has seen fit to remove from our midst John Keck, for many years a Director and President of this bank and one of the most respected citizens of our community;" Resolved, That we sincerely deplore the loss of the wisdom and counsel of our late President in our meetings and deliberations; That in him the whole community has lost a friend, one who contributed much to its material prosperity. • ' • That in him we have lost an upright man who has been identified with the growth of this Bank and who has long been the representative of our interests. That the Bank be closed on the afternoon of the day of the funeral at-i o'clock, and that this Board of Directors and the officers attend the funeral in a body. That the Board of Directors for themselves ,-id the stockholders-whom they represent, extend to the family of the deceased their sympathy for the loss of an honored husband and father. That these resolutions be engrossed on the minutes of the Board, and that they be published in the borough papers and a copy of the same sent to the bereaved family. ~ JOHH R.

Fruit and ames Boyle, of Delaware township, vere arraigned before ,'Squire Shipler, barged by George Diilihger with having ointed and discharged firearms at him. Mllinger testified that on Friday last he as standing in a little shop near his ouse, about four miles from Mercer, •hen the defendants drove past andfired iree shots in the direction where he tood, the balls passing within a few nches of his body. Harvy 'Brest and acob and John Dillinger testified that ruit was in the buggy, and that there was nothing to prevent his seeing who 'as in the shop. Captain Fruit asserted lat he was firing at a weasel he saw fter a chicken, and that he did not see 3illinger at all. The Justice held both efendants in $500 bail for court.— Dis- atch. [We are disposed to believe Captain Mruit's version "of the matter. He in- orms us that he saw the weasel with a lickcn in custody, and thoughtlessly red his revolver at it, without thinking f the impropriety of doing so. It is ossible that an old grudge had some- ling to do with the prosecution.—ED.J Tote oftlisnkB.

A disastrous wreck occurred on the Erie & Pittsbnrg railroad OB Tuesdax, about 10.30 a. m, by tfie-coUjsion of the North and South bound passenger trains' at a point between Middlesex and Pulas- kl The engineer and fireman of the North bound tram, were almost instantly lolled, while a number of passenger:, and several trainmen received injuries.

The cause" of the unfortunate accident was a blunder of the operator at Wheatland, named Grossman He received his order: for the south JxJund train all right JDUI wrote Pulaski where he intended West Middlesex, as the _piace where the trains were to pass. It is easy to see how this accident occurred when the above fact is recorded.''.- Both'engines were demolished and allrtrains were delayed eight hours.

A gentleman .who spent Sunday at Chautauqea tells us of a particularly outrageous outcome of the steamboat rivalry on the lake. On ^Saturday the steamer Moulton was proceeding; through the outlet from Jamestown'-" tSsthe lake. The City of Buffalo overtook: her. ;where the outlet-broadens sufficiently" for•'••tiro- boats, to .'pas;'and gave tfiq.signal for the Moulton to go to the" right. TThe Moulton, instead, threw herself, across the channel, obstructing the passage- To prevent colliding the Buffalo backed and proceeding a little further gave the signal for-the Moulton to takfr the left of the channel. The Moulton instead, repeated her former procedure. This raised the ire of the captain of the City of Buffalo, and he transformed his vessel into a ba'ttering ram and proceeded to attempt the feat.of butting the Moulton out of her course or sinking it. A rim of iron or steel around the Moulton" protected her from injury, but the bow of the City of Bufialo was all stove in. The City of Buffalo, we are informed, backed and plunged under full headway into the Moulton four times. Many ladies on the boats are said to have been frightened into hysterics by the occurence, and one was at last accounts seriously ill. Another lady is said to have had three ribs broken, ' There should be some means to put a stop to such outrageous doings. The public in general have no objection to Jie Chautauqua steamboat men battering their boats and each other to pieces, but it does believe that some regard should be shown for the safety of the passengers.— Oil City Blizzard.
