Much routine business was transacted and the reports from all the districts were encouraging. A FRIEND remarks that there are more pretty girls to the square yard, on North b'th street than on any other street in the village. This, of course, includes the young ladies now visiting persons on that thoroughfare. "WrrAT influence has the moon on Ihe tide'!" Ihe teacher asked John Henry. And John Henry said it depended on what was tied : if it was a dog it made him howl, and if it was a gate it untied it just as soon as a cow or young man came along. It is such things as this that make school teacher= want to lie down and die every day at 1 o'clock. LET it be remembered that if a voter moves from one borough or township to anothei, between now and Tuesday, Nov. 0, (election day), he loses his right to yote this year. Whoever does disfranchise himself, because be loses his residence of 00 days and gains none elsewhere. Every voter must reside CO days in the district where he offers to vote. Dn. Jonx LAXEY, who a few days since opened a dental office in Trilby's Building, nearly opposite the Indiana House, is one of the best workmen in the State. He graduated at the University of Pennsylvania and they turn out no inferior workmen at that shop. His work thus far in this place, has given most complete satisfaction. His charges are reasonable. I r i s stated that there were several case? of J i m jams last week. It was confined to per-ons from Erookville and Indiana.-Punxsutawney Spirit, The first sentence in the above is cprrect; the last is a long way oft the truth. The fellow % troubled with the jim jams were all Punxsutawney fellows, as any one could ca-ilv discover by the vc- million color of their respective nose-. Ox Wednesday niglit, September 26, a valuable horse was stolen frorh the stable of of .Smith Lynn, in Fairfield township,Westmoreland county. The animal is a bright bay, fourteen hands high, weighs 1300 pound", flat footed, little white on hind foot abdicted to the habit of cribbing. A reward of £25 is ofi'ercd for tiie horse and a like amount for the arrest of the thief. SOME person-, aie uncharitable enough to say that if our policeman would spend more time on the streets, looking after disorderly characters and spend less time in the alleys looking after "tray cows, it would bc better for the community. But then, the people who talk so have'had their cows impounded and we know from from experience that they do not feel in the most amiable mood. MR.

'SeH'iKE COLEMAX married a couple on Monday, but they requested him to keep the affair out of tiie papers. We presume neither of the contracting parties are ashamed of the affair, but have =ome other motive for the secrecy manifested. Ox Monday night la=t a couple of horses were hitched in Moorhead's shed, in West Indiana. After the show was over tho owner of the animals failed to find them and it is thought they were either stolen or ridden off by some malicious persons. TIIK show people made arrangements w ith the railroad company to sell tickets to the exhibition in connection with passage tickets. The double headers were put on sale at Blacklick on Saturday afternoon and by ening three hundred had been sold. W. II. ELLIS, son of the late David Ellis, of Springdale, paid us a pleasant visit last week. He is practicing law in Pittsburgh and is building up a lucrative practice. He is a young man of more than ordinary ability and will come to the top. WE are all subject to certain humiliations. We got more than our share on show day when a patron accosted Judge Sutton on the street and wanted to pay a year's subscription. That was about the severest thing we have undergone for some time. WE were ''t the Punxsutawnev fair week before last and were around considerable at our own fair last week, and we make the assertion, without fear of successful contradiction, that there was more drunkenness and disorderly conduct in Punxsutawney in fifteenjnimites than was seen in Indiana * whole four days of the fair. verdict of all who attended during the This 'is the both fairu. MOST girls:, almost from babyhood, if permitted to be with their mothers in the kitchen, love to see the work done, particularly Ihe cooking; and nothing delights them more than to be allowed to attempt to make some simple article themselves. This early play will not be forgotten. Girls that grow up under such training or indulgence w i l l have no tear of the real cares when it comes to them as a duty. MR LINK GII:=OX, of Green township, had more than his share of bad luck w h i l e coining to the fair. When near Pine Flats his buggy was upset and he and his lady were thrown out. After some difficulty he got all things squared up and proceeded on his \vay° All went well for a few rods when his vehicle was again upset and the contents spilled. A second time things were righted and no further accident occurred during the trip. LAST Friday evening a young man named Samuel Withers was leading a vicious cow along the highway near his father's residence, in President town=hip, Ycnango county, when she biiddcnlj', and w i t h o u t any warning, made a rush at him, striking him in the left f-ide and impaling him on herhoins. His side was tcrribly mangled and he died w i t h i n less than an hour, never having regained con-ciou-ness. The cow was shot. SEVERAL : ago an u n k n o w n man. with a bottle of whiskey in his hand,-tepped out on t h e railroad truck, at Mt. Pleasant, just as a passenger t i a i n was approaching, and afler striking a dramatic attitude,began to pom the whiskey down his throat,but he didn't get it all down. The brakes failed to stop the engine in time, and lie was knocked from the track head over heels. He was picked up, but in a few minutes recovered from the sbock and walked away, quite sober, F.FxnxTi.Y several horses gol into a cornfield belonging to Mr. Clark Black, of Smithport, Indiana counly, when he attempted to turn them out and in so doing picked up a com stalk and hit one of the animals, when it kicked with full force, striking Mr, B. full in the face.

ABOUT the -1th of July, J. S. Rodkey. of Diamondville, mk-ed his pocket book and after making dilligent search for it concluded it waslo-t for good. It contained over $20 in money and a number of valuable papers. A few days ago Mr. Black, the merchant there, while cleaning out his store found the missing book among some rubbish behind his counter. It is supposed it fell out of Mr. R's pocket while sitting on the counter, and was perhaps drawn to its place of concealment by rats. Suows'are organized to make money and skin their patrons and Forepaugh's is not an exception. The mode adopted by the show here on Monday was to sell tickets at CO cents, when the advertised price is 50 cts. In the evening this plan was worked to perfection. A great crowd assembled on the ground, all anxious to get into the tent. The ticket wagon was not opened till an outside arrangement had sold nearly every person on the ground tickets at 60 cents. This is a small swindle and entirely too small for a big show. Ox the night of October 1st, the County Treasurer's office was broken into and the Constable's Account Book stolen. The thief gained an entrance bv forcing the iron shutters on the alley window. It is clifti- mail is accumulating in this office, shall write me to forward it to him at another office, I will be justified in disclosing his address." Judge Freeman, Assistant Attorney General for the Department, is of the opinion that even in such a case as this a postmaster must respect tbe confidential relation between himself, as an official, and the patrons of his ofiice, and must refuse to disclose any private information received by him in his capacity. Ix the public schools of New Haven, Conn., a new course of study called ''newspaper geography'' has been adopted. This con'-i-ls, of requiring Hie students to trace out on his map, places referred to in news reports of the daily papers. In thio way he finds that dreary monotony of studying ge- ographv greatly alleviated, and in con-e- quence of an interest which seems inevitable, even to the most lazy pupil, he at once has a desire to ascertain the exact location of important events of the day, and when they are once found he retains the location in his mind. So far as tried the new study has proven very satisfactory. DOX'T point your gun'at youiself. Don't point your gun at any one else. Don't carry your gun so that its range includes all your hunting companions. Don't try to find out whether y o u r gun is loaded or not by shutting one eyeand looking down the bairel with tiie oilier. Don't use your gun for a walking stick. Don't climb over a fence and pull your gem through muzzle foremost. Don't throwrfhe gun into a boat so that the trigger w i l l catch in the seat anel the charge be deposited in your stomach. Don't use your gun for a sledge hammer. Don't carry your gun full cocked. Don't carry your gun w i t h the hammer down, Don't be a fool. Don't you forget it. THE prize of ten dollars for the best loaf of bread w as awarded to Mrs. Cheesly,widow of the late Edward Chcesly, of Homer City. She is a woman of very moderate circumstances, but knows how to make a loaf of good bread. The flour used was the Victor Roller, manufactured by D, Ellis Son, of this place. This is a large sized feather in the cap of the best mill in Western Pennsylvania. And we may remark in this connection that they are supplying many of the largest bakeries in this part of the State with their flour and find it difficult to keep pace with the demand. They purchase the best grades of Western wheat and arc willing to stand over their work.

(_ Oxi: day last week Mr. Bence, of Rayne townsliip,madc arrangements to hull his clover on the following day. The machine was set in the evening ready for work the next morning, When power was attached to tho machine next clay there was a terrible smashing of machinery and pieces of metal f f p w i n every direction. Fortunately none of the men were injured though some of them made very narrow escapes. An examination demonstrates the fact that during the night some scoundrel had placed a piece of iron where it would do not most Inrm and the result was as above btat- ed. The man w h o would thus destroy his neighbor's property andjendanger the lives of his fellow men deserves the most severe punishment and, if caught, he will likely get what he deserves.

There is nothing that will so derange the nervous force as to lie all night in a bed with another person who is absorbent in nervous force. The absorber will go to sleep and rest all night, while the eliminator will he tumbling and tossing, restless anel nervous, and wake up in the mornings fretful, peevish, fault-finding and discouraged. No two persons, no matter who they are, should habitually sleep together. One will thrive, the other w i l l lose. This is the law.

John Brown and Henry Weaver were partners and were engaged in trad ing horses On the day of the murder Weaver had made a trade and cleared §47.50 for the firm. In the evening Brown called on him and demanded half of the proceeds of the trade. Weaver was nursing his child and told Brown to come in the morning and he would pay him his share. At this Brown became angered, drew a revolver and in !,o presence of Weaver's wife shot him iu the head At this juncture the lamp was overturned and extinguished. Brown then fired a second shot in the dark, which struck a door. He felt around, found a match, and striking it, held it where he could see his yictim.and as the wounded man rose he tired at him again. He knelt on the prostrate man, took forty dollars from his pockets and Heel. At the corner of the street he had a horse hitched. He sprang on its back and rode rapidly away. He has not been captured. The men are both well known and the police of both cities are on the lookout for the murderer. THE Republican meeting advertised for Wednesday niglit last, in Court House, was an enthusiastic affair. The hall was filled till there was no longer standing room, by an intelligent and thoughtful audience. Chairman Bell called the meeting to order and nominated Capt. W. C.

Beaver, was to be the orator, and urged an active campaign. On motion the following persons were chosen Vice Presidents: E. P. Hildebrand, Col. D. S. Porter, W. J. Burns, W. II. Jenkins, S. J. Craighead, K. L. Hunter, W. R. Black. J. R. Smith, Geo. Bank, Z. T. Ridley, S. C. Hazlelt, T. S. Marshall, M. T' Work, Peter Leastire, Milton Noel, J. S. Nesbit and J. Iv. Thompson. John Lowry, W. McWilHams and S. A. Smith, were chosen Secretaries. After the completion of the organization, Gen. Beaver was introduced by the President, and made a most telling speech which was received with enthusiasm by the audience. It was a good meeting and its effect will be felt during the campaign. ~--A G'riMvl from a Growler. ED^. MESSENGER.--The Fair is over and as it is the privilege of every American citizen to giowl w h e n things do not go to suit him, I desire to have my say in regaid to the management of the recent exhibition. In the first place, I do not like the make up of the premium list. Too much money is given horses and not enough to agricultural products. In many instances the judges selected to award premiums were utterly unfit for the duties' and as a consequence tho second class articles took first money. This is not as it should be. The premium list did not do justice to the average farmer and stock raiser. Persons w h o have fancy stock of no special v.sc to the farmer, were awarded large premiums. I also object to placing men on the Board of Managers who do not know a cultivator from a windmill and cannot tell what time of year any farm product should be planted. They are not the men to manage an agricultural society in the interest of the farmer. The reader may say that that is the fault of the mem. hers of the Association, as a large majority of them are farmers. Let ua see how this is. The election takes place on Tuesday of the December court. At that time there are not a great many farmers in town ; as a class, Jour best farmers have no business at court and few of them feel like traveling ten or twenly miles to be allowed the privilege of voting. And as a consequence Ihe people of Indiana usually control the election and generally elect the ticket. Now, this should be changed. Why not hold the election on the fair grounds during the fair. Let the polls he opened at noon on the 2el day anel continue open till noon of the 4th day. Have the Managers appoint two responsible men to hold it anel pay them well for their time ; the society can afford it. Then every ticket holder can vote on presentation of his annual ticket.'ln this way every member of the society could get a vote anel none be disfranchised. This is one reform I should like to see adopted and hope some one will present an amendment to the constitution to that effect. Judges who are related to exhibitors should not be allowed to judge of articles in Masses where said exhibitors are competitors for premiums and how caa a judge, on bread for instance, give a competent decision when she cannot balce a loaf fit to eat, if it was to pave her? These arc some of the tilings I know it is hard for the Man- ageis to prevent; but they might come a little nearer it than they do. GBCNVLER.

At this writing, (We.lne- lay evening I Ihe palient give? good promise of complete recover',-, and if her progress for tiie next too weeks shall justify the large hop - of h;r many friends and well-wishers ,._ will owe a large debt of gratitude to the modern science and art of surgery as ,\e'l as to the skilled physicians into whose hands she has placed herself. Ova-ian tumor, cyst or dropsy, is of such frequent occurrence, is so grave a malady and so difficult of successful removal by treatment of uch an operation as this merits mure than mere passing notice. Removal of ovarian tumor by cutting it from the abdomen with a knife was first performed by Dr. Ephraim McDowell of Kentucky iu 1S09. Since then it has been adopted as one of the most valuable resources of surgery in every civiiizetl country of the world, It has been performed by Dr. Spencer Wells of England more than eleven hundred times and he has had about 7o per cent of successful rendts. It has been estimated that tens of thousands of years of healthy and valuable human life been saved by this operation at the hands of Dr. Wells alone. Ovariotomy is a heroic operation and though of Ameucan origin it is not practiced by every American doctor. And not every surgeon who cuts will attempt to cut away a tumor of this kind. It is well this is so, for statistics show that the ratio of ieooveiie:3 after this operation is greatest in the practice of surgeons who have had some cxpeiience in this particular woik. Di. T. St. Ciair's experience in ovariotomy is not contemptible, amounting in all to about foiuteen case-, which just evens the number operated upon by his grc.it protofvpe,McDowell. Although ov.uian tumor is a disease not susceptible of cure by internal medication, theie are various ways of operating and treating it locally. A very interesting and rare case occurred recently in my practice. Miss ·Jeruslia Marklc, then living in Pittsburgh, became the victim of rapidly developing abdominal enlargement, evidently from dropsy of some kind. Doubtless if medication by derivatives, revulsives, irritants and ethaustivcs (to coin a word for the occasion) could remove the fluid from an ovarian cyst, such removal would have been effective in the case of Miss M. while she was still in Pittsburgh, and where she had the advice of suigeons of good reputation. But she was brought home unrelieved to her father's hou-e near Yellow creek and placed under my direction. She was not deemed the most hopeful case for a cutting operation. Drs. St. Clair in counsel with me in this case recommended tapping and the introduction of a permanent drainage tube through which daily discharge could take place and proper chemical solutions he introduced into the tumor to destroy its mordiel secreting action. This plan was adopted in practice and Miss Marklc is now convalescent after v lingering prostration which brought her very near death's door. Probably sixteen pintsof degeneratcd,creamy pus-like fluid were disdiaiged at the first lapping. A m i n u t e and detailed statement of the development and progress of this case 'incl its successful treatment would make a profitable record for the perusal of the medical profession. It should be remarked in regard to the case of Mrs. Cusic that extraordinary clifli- uilties were encountered in the process of icmoving the tumor. It was grown fast to the abdominal wall in front which fact necessitated some delicate dissecting for its detachment--a complication which materially increased the labor and taxed the resources of the operator, prolonged the duration and added to the dangers of the operation. I have remarked tint experience a valuable and valued acquiieinent of the surgeon, but in ovariotomy, as in all other departments of medical and surgical prac lice, each new case possesses peculiar features of its own and demand; a capacity for spontaneous decision and ac'iou in unforieen emergencies'. The Drs. St. Clair wiio are modest men may question the propriety of so much pu lie statement about their work, hut I submit to the candid reader that aside from th newsv quality of any of these statements o fact, they may have a far greater value a resources of needed intelligence to a portion o All Our Departments Filling Up This From a package of Hair Phis to au elega ARTHUR LADIES cols, quality, pricey styles never equalled ai The One Price .Store. continued with a recitation on the cult to understand why that particular hook should be wanted, as all the accounts can be duplicated. Of course it will reciuire some time and considerable labor to do this, but a new hook will soon be made. Treasurer Gibson, as will be seen by an advertisement elsewhere, offers a reward of $100 for the conviction of the thief. Ox Saturday last the brakes on a street car got out of order as the car reached the top of a steep grade on Sandusky street, Allegheny City. The car ran through the gates at the crossing of the Fort Wayne railroad and collided with a passing freight train. The car was wrecked and all the passengers in it, twenty-five in number,were more or less injured. Four of them, Chas. Menzenheizer, Mrs. Mary Martin, Mary Hall (colored) and Hugh Dnnnet, were severely hurt and the two I5si named are likely to die. No blame is attached to anybody for the accident. . along the edge of the right jaw beating of the artery is felt ; press hard upon it, and the bleeding will cease. Continue the pressure five minutes, unti Ithe ruptured vessels in the nose contract. In the case of the severing of an artery, the utmost activity is required, else the patient will bleed to death. Tie a handkerchief loosely around the limb, between the wound and the heart, place a stick through it, and twist it up lightly till the bleeding stops. If the wound will not admit of this, place the thumb on the artery between the wound and the heart, and sent! immediately for a physician. A nLAiKSTIlLE correspondent writes: On the day after the soldiers reunion at this place, "bills were pcsted up by the banquet committee inviting the citizens of the t»wn and vicinity to come to the hall and partake of the good things left by the soldiers the evening before. It was said that the surplus consisted of about 200 chickens and about 40 cakes, besides the et ceteras and such that go to make up the trimmings of a first-class feast. About S o'clock the hall was filled to overflowing by an average hungry crowd consisting of all classes from the town and country.
