Tho following incident, which, at the ri'iie, ciuwcil wnch lulk, and is still Told by thu children of old settlors -who lij.u-il it from their parnHh, h;is iicver, to iiiy knowledge, appwuvd in priut, :,iul the only object in tclliu^ it now is so many puoplc arc interested iu anything of ;m historical nature pertaining to tho days of our grandfathers. My :uiecators wore among the first settlors of ."western Pennsylvania, iiiy ffi-amlfather boing 0110 of the garrison of old Forb Pitt, dying there during tho Kevolntionaiy war. The incident referred to was told mo by my mother, wJio was attending a school in Pittsburg at the time, and my grandmother Culber- hon, who was a resident of the city for many years, and who died there in 1SG4 nt the ago of 89 years. About tho first of this century a man named Noglcy built a house five miles east of Pitt=biirg on a road nuiuiug east and west, midway between tho Alleghany nnd Jlonongahcla rivers. It was a tavern aud farmhouc combined. Teamsters, drovers and travelers stopped 011 their way to and from tho city to get a meal or stay overnight. These wayside inns were numerous in early days, and arc still found iu many' parts of the country. They are generally pleasant places to stop at. After Negley had occupied his tavern a number of years tho place was named Negleyville, afterward Rising Sun aud later East Liberty. Negley was ns bloodthirsty a villain as could have bacu found on tlie frontier and had associated with him a number of men as bad as himself, who made his tavern their headquarters, and whose Uusiuess was to rob aud immlcr loi'ommato travelers who might stop there. The undoing of these men was brought about in this way: A poo; 1 woman with her two small childieu started afoot from some point cast of Liberty to walk to Pittsburg. Iu tho evening sho reached Negley's tavern, and as her children were too tired to go farther sho put up for tho night. Soon after entering the house she began to feel uneasy, as there was something mysterious about the actions of the inmates. Before she retired to rest a traveler rode up aud dismounted, and after seeing his horse cared for entered tho house. He seemed to bo a drover returning from tho city after disposing of some, cattle. Concealing her alarm, she followed tho landlady, a coarse, brawny woman, to a room up stairs, whoso door was without fastenings and which contained only a bed and stool. Retiring with her children, sho was nuablo to sleep. An hour or so later she heard the traveler being escorted to au adjoin ing room and heard him complain (hat, his door could not be fcccurcd, and the landlord assured him that ho was as safe as he would bo iu his own house, an assertion tho traveler evidently believed, as his heavy breathing soon told that ho was asleep. Near midnight the woman, who was still awake, heard stealthy steps pass her door and several pin-Foiis enter tho adjoining room. In n, fo\v minutes there was a heavy blow, followed by a low cry and then n short struggle. A littlo after the murderers came into her room, but seeing that sho seemed to be asleep left her, and sho heard them carry tho dead man through tho hall aud down stairs. In tho morning they wero very polite, inquiring how sho rested, etc., stating that the drover had got up early and gouo on. After breakfast sho and tho children started for tho city, but wero soon met by a man coming from there, who stopped her, inquiring who sho was and whcro sho was going, where sho had staid tlio night before, etc. Believing him to bo one of tho b.iuct, sho answered truthfully, but told him that the peoplo at tho tavern, were very nice people and had treated' her very well Ho passed on, but sho mot another coming from tho city who made tho same inquiries, and still another; but she told the samo story, and they, believing that sho kuew nothing, let her go. Ou her arrival at Pittsbnrg sho iii- formcd tho authorities and tho place was broken up, but whether auy of them were brought to justice 1 am unablo ta say.--Sarah P.

Mr. Siiratloy Snya Tlmt IVc Get It From Anclcut Kffypt. W. J. Spratloy, to uso his plaiii Eng- lisli unine, hiis favored us with a copy of a letter ho has addressed to The lu- stitnto and Lecturers' Gazette ou tho etymology of tho word "Hurrah!" which ilv. Spratlcy spells "Hoorah!" We have becu vaguely cherishing tho idea that it had a Russian origin, but Mr. Spratloy takes us to ancient Egypt in liis etymological search. lie thinks "there can be 110 doubt that the Egyptian soldiers went into battle to tho inspiriting cheer o f ' HooRa! HooRa 1 HooRa!''' and if tho average questioning mail asks why, ho Btjiggcrs him with this: "Because IIooEa (iu tho toiiguo of tho Thotlmies and Raineses) means 'The king, the king, tho king!' Yea, more. As 'Ka' menus not only king, but also God aud mail, the concentrated meaning of the ciy would be, Tor God, king aud country!' What more loyal, what more patriotic, what more devout?" What, indeed! But lest we should haply still doubt, Jlr. Spratley clinches tho matter by cit- iug, in corroboration, the fact that his name, in Egypitiau roots, is Sa-pa-Ea- tsi-y, or Sa-pa-Hoo-Ra-ta-y, which means "Sou of heaveu, king of tho two hemispheres, " and if the authority of a jjeutlcnian of this descent is not good enough for the mere doubter, csven Mr. Sa-pa, etc., may well despair of convincing him. Jloro thau this, it' Jlr. Sprntley's Egyptian name means any- (hiiig--and this is an open question--it idso signifies "King of lower Egypt aud king of upper Egypt," or "Emperor of the World." But what wo chiefly liko it for is that it scums to settle another point that may well have bafiled the philologist--namely, the genesis of the once familiar refrain "Ta-ra-m- booin-dc-ay. " Is it possible that Miss Lotties Collins and tho street urchin have been singing ancient Egyptian, as ^Ir. Jourdisiu. spoko prose, without knowing it?--Loudou Cliroiiicle. J. Gi:o.

PAUPER. f hcckrnvl Car.-er of thu A«tlior of a Once Popular Song. The Rov. Edward Dunbnr, who wrote the old Sunday school song, "Tlicro's ;i Light In the Window For T!;ec', Brother," sleep.-; in a pauper's {,-ritvo at Coffeyvillo, Kan., wbero ho dirfil a tuinip iu tlie town jail years n;;j, ITiw inline became a byword in the places whure ho was Itnown, and from n prison cell he wont forth a vagabond upon the face of the earth. In ISO? Duubiir was arrested at Leavenworth while engaged in holding a series of: revival meetings and taken to Minneapolis, where lie was tried for bigamy, convicted and sent to the penitentiary for three years and eight months. One night in the spring of 1890 Jjiitbar applied at the Coffeyvillo jail for lodging. He was ill, and tho aulhoritic-: took him in. He died tlie iie.iit day. Papers in his pockets revealed his identity and showed that ho had tramped all over the country. Hon-.e ehnn-h people liavo ci-acted a inai-ble si ah over his grave, ou which these words arc inscribed: "Here lies Edward Duubar, who wrote 'There's a Light In tho Win- clow For Thee, Brother." 1 When Dunbar was a small hoy, he lived iu New Bedford, Mass.,* and worked in a factory. His mother lived at tlie foot of the stre.Pt on which tho factory wjis located, and as the lad's work kept him .-away till after dark sho always placed a light jn tho.window to guide his footsteps homeward. Quo- day the boy took a notion to go to sea, and off he w u n t for a three years'cruise. During bis ahseiu'0 his mother fell ill and was at death's door. She talked incessantly alotit her boy, and every night sho askoil those around her to place a light in the window in ajiti- wpation of his return.. When she realized that the end had come, she said, "Tell Edward that I will sot a light iu the window of heaven for him." These wero her last words. Tho lad had grown to manhood ere he returned homo, and his mother's dying message had such an effect upon^liini that he reformed and became a preacher. In the course of his reformation he wrote the song, "There's a Light In the Window For Thee. Brother."' The Rev. Edward Duubar married a young lady of New Bedford, and several children weie the result of. the union. The young divine soon made a reputation as u brilliant pulpit orator, aud the public was therefore greatly surprised when 0110 Sunday morning he skipped tho country, leaving his wife and children behind. He camo to Kansas, aud after snatching brands from tho burning in different parts of the state he swooped down upon the city of Minneapolis and liegan to show the people the error of their way. A great revival followed, and hundreds were converted. Miss Eunice Been Lowi, a handsome young heiress of Minneapolis, was one or' the converts. She fell in love with the evangelist aud married him against the wishes of nor friends. Shortly after the wedding Dunbar returned to Kansas to fill an engagement at Leavomvorth. While 'he was away tho friends of the bride, who had mistrusted the evangelist all along, laid their suspicions before W. D. Webb, lately judge of tho Second judicial district of Kansas, imd Judge Austin H. Young, who wore law partners m Minneapolis, and they (cok tho case. Tho result was that they boon found evidence . sulh'cient to warrant,.an arrest, and Dunbar's ministerial career was brought to a sudden close. After Dunbar's incarceration Judge Young secured a divorce for Mrs. Dunbar and married her himself. They now live happily together in Minneapolis.-- Topoka Capital. Notable linlus. It sounds very much liko a bull to ppeak of the ruins of a cathedral which was never built, yot that extraordinary-eight can be seen across tlio river in one of the best neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Years ago, in the flush times after the war, it was proposed to build a magnificent Roman Catholic cathedral to replace the insignificant church now used for tho purpose. The land, a splendid tract, was secured, subscriptions were obtained and the plans niado for a building which would be an ornament to tho new world. The ground was broken with imposing ceremony, an army of men put to work, and soon the massive walls imd foundations were finished up to about Id feet from the ground. Then came a panic and troubles of many kinds. The work was stopped and the walls topped with earth and wood to keep them from decay. Years passed and another effort was made, but only enough money was secured to build a small portion at one end of tho great building to be, which is used as a ph;oe of worship. The grass and moss, vines and lichens are everywhere, the boarding has fallen off in many places, imd at a short distance the place looks exactly liko many of the old cathedrals in various parts of Europe which are crumbling to dust.-Kew York Mail and Express.
