A MODEL DRUG STOKE.— Dr. F. M.
Marbourg, of Shellsburg, has just fixed
up and filled with the purest and best
articles the markets affords, a drug
store, which in point of enterprise, is
far ahead of anything in that part of
the county. It is in every respect a
model establishment, and we hope that
the proprietor of this new enterprise
will recieve the patrouage which he
deserves. The Doctor has met with
great success in his practice, and stands

section of our county.
JUSTICE TEMPERED WITH MERCY.
—Benedict Miller, a Geman "tramp,"
picked up a double-barrel gun which
had been placed against a tree near the
road, in Snake Spring, by one of our
modern Ninirods. Miller —as he after
wards alleged before the Justice —saw
no owner, and as no one claimed the
gun as he marched along with it,
he imagined his right to the same
was superior to that of any one.
else—a sort of ownership acquired by
the right of discovery. But the way
faring Teuton was speedily l>rought
to grief. At the Forks he was met by
a hunter who knew the gun and who
was aware that it had been taken at
the place aforesaid. A warrant was is
sued, and the German with his gun
was brought to face stern justice. His
■dory before the magistrate was so sim
ple, that the sympathy of the crowd
was almost unanimously elicited in
his favor. The prosecutor, too, was
anxious for his release, and offered to
pay all costs. Justice yielded to mer
cy, and Miller, after being admouish
ed to do so no more, was set at liberty,
for which act of magnanimity he seem
ed truly grateful.
AFRICAN PARADE.— On Thursday
night last, our town was the scene of a
torch-light parade on the part of the
"gentlemen of color" residing in this
neighborhood, reinforced by the wait
ers at ahe Springs. We believe there
was no other purpose in theaflair than
the amusement of those engaged in it.
There was a number of torches, Chi
nese lanterns and transparencies and a
large American flag was carried in
front of the procession, which was pre
ceded by drum and fife. The caps and
hats of the darkies were of the most
fantastic sort, some of thern wearing
the old-fashioned chapeau bras, made
of paper, giving them the appearance
of so many brigadier generals on dress
parade. After marching through the
streets, the procession halted in front
of the residence of Mrs. Anderson, on
Pitt street, when Gen. lien. Taylor,
head waiter at the Springs, in a short
speech, expressed his gratitude for the
kind treatment he had always receiv
ed from the proprietors of the Springs.
&c, &c. Neither of the Messrs. An
derson being at home, Dr. C. N. Ilick
ok, at the request of the ladies of the
house, thanked Gen. Taylor and his
"compatriots" for their polite demon
stration. The procession was orderly,
no disturbance whatever occurring.
We were glad to notice that no politi
cal mottos were displayed on the ban
ners. We shall always have a kind
word to say for our African popula
tion so long as their behavior is as
good as on Thursday night last.
HOUSE AND BUGGY THIEVES CAP
TURED.—On last Wednesday afternoon
two rough looking characters drove
into town with horse and buggy, and
put up at the Mengel House. The
horse was much jaded and numerous
were the "welts" raised on his back
and sides. The heroes of this article
offered the whole rig for sale at a mod
erate price, and this and other circum
stances led Mr. J. A. Cessna, who
keeps the Mengel House livery, to sus
pect that all was not right. According
ly he telegraphed to several places, but
received nothing to warrant the arrest
of the supposed thieves. The stran
gers indulged freely in benzineand felt
so good over their lucky adventure
thus far, that a trip to the Springs was
projected and carried out. While
they were testing the healing virtues
of our mineral waters, the officers of an
outraged law were close upon their
heels, for deputy constable Floto, of
Berlin, had traced these scamps to this
place, and was armed with a warrant
to arrest them for stealing, the night
before, a horse and buggy, two sets of
harness and a lot of clothing, near Mey
er's Mills. Mr. Cessna proceeded to
the Springs at once, bought the rig for
$215, and brought the fellows to town
to give them their money, but forgot to
mention to the delighted boys that a

Much pleased that they had so easily

A SENSATION.— Saint Clair township
is just now being treated to a first class
sensation. Within her borders and
close to the Bedford township line, in
an old two story log house, is a
"spook," a hobgoblin, a "what is it."
Superstitious people, as well as those
who believe in nothing that is not tan
gible—things that cannot be grasjKnl.or
that stand out in bold relief like a bank
barn or a mighty oak—flock thither
every day to see the image of a man, a
woman or a child, and sometimes all
three, at one peep. Hundreds have al
ready been there to see what could be
seen, and hundreds more will go there
unless the mysterious faces are posi
tively stared out of countenance.
It is a wonderful thing, these myth
ical faces peeping through the window
panes. But all are not blessed with a
sight of the mysterious beings. Out
of a hundred visitors, probably only
about twenty are permitted to catch a
glimpse of thewonder. The "spooks"
are partial, it seems. Persons with
eyes of a bluish tint have in 110 single
instance beheld what others affirm so
positively can plainly be seen. Wheth
er this holds good with persons who
"feel blue" we are not informed.
But, seriously, there are a great
many people in this community who
firmly believe that faces tan be seen
through a certain window in that old
two story log house, that have not yet
been recognized by any one who has
been treated to a sight. The descrip
tions are of them different; and yet some
there be who can give the color of the
hair on the man's head, the length of
his beard and the thickness of his eye
brows. And a great many of these
descriptions harmonize perfectly—
Some folks laugh about this atfair,
others take it seriously to heart and
with a knowing shake of the head say,
"it means something." Whether
there is a deep mystery connected
therewith that time only can unrave',
or whether it is a first class sensational
humbug, we shall see. They say—and
that is certainly good authority—that
it has "spooked" out in that region for
a number of>eurs.
As for ourselves we do not believe
in such stutf. Our earliest impressions
have been quite the reverse. But
some day we will go to the haunted
house, and if we are successful in mak
ing the acquaintance of the wonderful
faces, our readers shall know all about
We forgot to state that the house is
occupied by a lady and her daughter,
who are perfectly unconcerned about
the matter, notwithstanding the
throng and excitement which has for
ced itself upon them in their rural re
treat, and which they are almost daily
called u|>on to witness. They ought
to charge each visitor 2o cents for a
jeep at this first class side show.
PEOPLE AT THE POST (*FFICE.—A
great many "peculiar people" call at
the post otfice, among whom may l>e
mentioned the following; The indi
vidual who gets a letter about once in
six months, but always struggles to
be the first at the window ; the one
who regards his solitary letter as a nat
ural curiosity, turning it over and over,
viewing it critically from an up-hill
and down-hill stand-point, as if in as
tonishment that he should get one at
all; the man from the country, who
inquires for all the folks at his place;
the sprueeclerk, with a paste bosom-pin
andsshort tailed coat, who gets a doz
en letters for his employer, and looks as
wise as though they were all intended
for himself; the old buffer, who gets a
letter from his married daughter in In
diana, puts on his "specs," and reads it
through before leaving the rail; the
indignant specimen, who wonders why
the d—euce the expected letter has'nt
come, and who hoi s an earnest collo
quy with the clerk as to the probable
cause of its detention; the blushing
damsel who, in her eagerness, jabs the
parasol in your left eye, and apologi
zes with a smirk and a titter; the
bashful young man, with faint traces of
down on his chin, who expects a letter
from his sweetheart, and who retires
inVonfusion; the he-rouged and bc
flounced syprian, who smells of musk,
and who inquires with a cracked voice,
for Miss Viola Fitzsimmons; the big
paunched man, who treads at your an
guish ; the seedy customer, who gets
a bill for washing and tries to make
you think it is a draft; these, with the
booby who waits an hour to see who
comes in, are the most prominent of
post office nuisances.
