Moore about a A Horrible Story of Crime That Gomes From Rahway, New Jersey. The brutal murder of a young and unknown woman caused most Intense excitement at Rahway, N. J-, on Saturday. The body was found early in the morning near the junction of Central and Jefferson avenues, on the western outskirts of the city, by Alfred Warth. The scene of the murder is a bleak and desolate place. About 100 yards further on Central avenue ends in an open field. The body lay at the side of the road, with the head resting against a fence-post. The woman was apparently of from 20 to 25 years old. Her throat had been cut from ear to ear.and a pool of blood three Inches deep was at the base of the skull. The murderer had evidently struck her first a terrible blow with a sharp-pointed and keen edged knife, which penetrated the left side of the throat and entered the mouth. The next blow was struck with Buch force that the knife was driven half way through the woman's neck. The weapon was then pulled toward her right ear, cutting her head nearly half off. On the chin were two long cuts, which penetrated to the bone. by making the date May 2L him, and she Is now 83 years of age.

They do not bother about politicial power, except now and then to show how many thousands of Republican majority they can give over the rauc Gibraltar of Berks but they have waked up to an appreciation of the matchless resources nature has given them, and the report of their Board of Trade tells the story of their success. They report a greater diversification of productive industries than can be found fn any Interior city or town of the state. They have 600 manufacturing establishments with $7,000,000 of annual product; they sell $5,000,000 of goods in their stores they liave built up an annual trade of 55,000,000 in tobacco and live stock they have 1,7000,000 invested in banking, with nearly $3,000,000 of deposits. They have better streets than Philadelphia better water and plenty of it competing railroads to cheapen transportation and they have just waked up tc the fact that they can offer superior advantages to capital for almost every channel of industrial enterprise. In Bhort, they are mow doing in the most discreetly aggressive manner what Philadelphia should have done long ago, and what Philadelphia has not yet thought of doing viz notifying the world by ludubi table facts and figures, of the great advantages our city presents for both enter iprise and pleasure. Lancaster is a old town and full of historic interest More than one and a halt centuries ago it was known among the straggling pioneers as Hickory Town." It rose to the dignity of a borough charter as early as 1742. and assumed city habiliments in 1818. Congress stampeded from the redcoats to Lancaster in July, 1777, and for more than a dozen years it was the state capital, ending in 1812 It now has a population of over 30,000, and the county with its 150,000, is the largest agricultural community of the commonwealth, with the best farms and generally imost prosperous husbandmen. Its weeping willowsishade the simple tomb of Pennsylvania's only president and in an ancient and "God's acre" closely skirting the active part of the city, the old commoner of the civil war rests in his dreamless sleep. died with none of their blood to bear ttheir names and dim the lustre of the great opposing political gladiators whose conflict ended only in the city of the silent. It has no Independence hall, or Girard college, or Falrmount park but what its people have of both sentiment and resources they offer to the world in the most attractive form. The lesson just learned by Lancaster, one of the oldest, serenest and solidest ot our inland cities, is the lesson of progress the lesson that comes from the quick, nervous, go-ahead West to rattle the bones of Eastern dry-rot where boundless resources and opportunities invite people to advancement, and it is the lesson that Philadelphia must learn. poor woman had been held when the last made a short address.

From the Philadelphia Kecord The public-spirited gentlemen composing the Boaid of Trade in Lancaster have taken a very thorough way of bringing the advantages of that city to the attention of manufacturers by printing a neat and comprehensive manual setting forth in detail the business of the city and its inducements as a seat of industrial activity. The people of Lancaster are not braggarts. They are and always have been advanced beyond their reputation for enterprise and solidity. The statement that 600 manufacturing estao-lishments in that city turn out $7,000,000 worth of annual product that its stores sell $5,000,000 of miscellaneous goods and wares that it has a trade of $5,000,000 in tobacco and live stock; that tht, capital ot its banks reaches an aggregate of $1,700,000, with deposits of $2,800,000, will be in the nature of to many Philadelphians. If its railroad companies deal fairly by there Is probably no place in this country bettor adapted for a seat of industrial activity. It is nestled in a very Garden of Eden. No part of the United States compares with Lancaster county in the bountiful production that rewards scientific farming. The fruitful earth insures cheap living to a swarming population.
