"CIVIL SERVICE RKFORM."
Our pious President must have
been a very wicked politician just
prior to his elevation to the liigh of
fice, if Mr. Addition-Division-aiul-
Milence Kemble can be believed.
Hayes just now seems to have a se
vere if not dangerous attack of civil
service reform on the brain, but he
should be a little careful how he
treats ami handles the malady, lest
such damaging witnesses as Kemble
might mnltiplv and rise up in judg
ment against him. Kemble charges
flatly that the oampaigns of '75 and
*76 in Ohio were both carried by Penn
sylvania money, raised by assess
ments on the Philadelphia office
holders, some of trft ich teas sent direct
ly to Mr. Ha firs himself , which "it
would be uncharitable to say that
the President had not used for jxylit
ical purposes as anv other use of it
would be a breach of trust that
would warrant the Pennsylvania
1 opticians iu calbng upon him for
an account render."
These charges an l from a very
high Republican source, and so posi
tive and direct that they seriously
implicate Mr, Ilayes ii- the very
worst of party practices. They are
sadlv inharmonious with his Civil
Service Reform circular. Let his
Fraudulent explain. He has the

Death of Samuel Miller.
From McGregor City, lowa, we
have the sad news that Mr. Samuel
Miller, eldest son of Capt. John
Miller, met his death by a fearful
accident. It appears there is a col
lection of sand boulders near McGre
gor, called Pictured Rocks, where
peonle are in th habit of getting
sand. On tlie 10th of June, Mr.
Miller, in company with another
man named Clark, went to this place
for sand, sod while Clark was chip-
Ding off pieces from the rock with
hammer and chisel, the entire mass
supposed to weigh 18—20 tons, gave
way and fell on the men, killing
Clark instantly- Mr. Miller's left
arm was broken and his whole body
dreadfuHy Urnised. He lived for
fifteen days "after the Accident, and
departed this June 28, after ex

it was a grand success. There never

And Senator Peale, too, was here
on tlie Fourth, and stayed a few
days to rusticate and get 'acquainted
with our people. If the Senator is
as well pleased with our folks as
they are with him, then will Cock

Our friend. Geo. W. Footc had a little
mlsluip. which for a whilumade a big fuss,
hut did not cause much damage in the
end. George wua on hand with peanuts,
oranges, lemons, bananas und other jiatri
otlc fruits, as well as a full assortment of
pyrotechnic lire-works. Sonic rapscallion
who did not lutve tlie fear of Go<| before
his eyes, threw a brand Into George's fire
works, when a succession of explosions
followed for aw hile that beggur* all de
scription. A crowd soon collected and
the yelling and shoaling of the boy*. eouiv
hsl with tlie general racket on the wagon
made noise and confusion enough to
drown entirely the music of the bands
and drum cori>s. After the fuss was over
the loss was found to be but slight.
The number of people on the grounds
was certainly very large but Is vuriously
estliuuted. Some think sum were there
bnt that is gm-ssing a little lilgli. Fight
thousand would constitute a small city
and that would lie rather fast work for
Penns Valley—getting up a city In a day.
We do think, however, that 4000. or 4fo.
would lie a fair estimate of the number
present. It Is certainly agreed upon all
hands tlint It was bv many odds the larg

We can not close tills article without
commending in the highest terms of praise
the good order and happy temper that pre
vailed throughout. So dm likeness—no
jirofanity—no riotous or disorderly eon
duet of any kind was seen or heard, that

good, sociul ltunmr. seemed to prevade the
entire vast multitude of people. The two
comities mingled und blended together
into one harmonious and lieuutiful whole.

BOLD HORSE THEFT. —On Thurs

Pile's ma rc-a valuable animal-was
stolen fro m the hotel stable of Mr.
Rousli at Rebersbiirg, lv a young
scoundrel said to lie from Williams
port, who gave his name as Walter
Kirby. Kirb y had lieen loafing
around Musaer's Hotel, here In Mill
hf im for nearly a week, without any
apparent object or business. Mr.
Peale was also here,and left for Re
bersburg in the afternoon, where he
staved all night. Kirby got a horse
and buggy from Mr. Musser, under
pretense of taking a girl out riding,
telling the hostler that he would pro
bably return a little late, and would
put up the horse himself, instead of
which he followed Mr. Peale to rte
bersburg and made off with the mare
that night. He tried to throw pur
suit off his track by pretending to
go through Sugar Valley, as Mus
ser's hoi se and buggy were found a
little off front the main road, near
John Ruhl's,back of Reliersburg, the
following morning. The thief with
Mr. Peale's mare, however were
gone. He must have passed down
Jirush Valley and crossed the moun
tain at Wolfs store, as Mr. W. B.
Bitner saw him on Friday night at
WeklensauPs, but had no knowledge
of the theft. Mr. Peale, in company
with Sheriff Musser, went post haste
to Lock Haven on Friday and tele
graphed in all directhtus, and it is
noped the thief may be intercepted.
