—Millheim is again without an ex
press office for the present. It was
discontinued last week. We did not
learn the cause but suppose there was
not enough business to justify offices
both here and at Coburn.
—The grave yard at Musser's church
has recently been cleaned up and the
community out there expect to keep ft

—The Sunday School Convention
held at Unionville last week seems to
have been a success. There was a

mfillisters and five sui>erintendents
were present. Questions of a

stfrtday schools were 'diScfiSSbd, and
it to'believed that tne cause received a

—E. Motz, Esq!, late of Woodward,
but at present at Jefferson, Chester
field county, South Carolina, was here
last week on a flying visit to his fam
ily. He found his little folks so com
fortable and well caiM for by "Mary"
that he stayed only a few days. We
had but a single glimpse of "Man"at
a distance, but feel fully satisbed from
his appearance that the gold mining
business down there must be booming.
But why don't somebody start a gold
mine "in these diggings?"

wouldn't be the least surprised though,
if upon his return he would relate how
the ruins Of Milton look, how business
is booming at HARRIS' STANDARD
STORE in Lewisburg, or how Christ is
getting along at New Berlin. That's
just the way he acts. When he says he
is going to a particular place one is
never sure that he goes only to that one
plafce. Guess he begins to think he has
business most anywhere in the world.
shipments over the Lewisburg & Ty

fifths of this amount 1b oak car stuff,

On bearing tfoe losses at the Milton 1
fire, posters were sent all over town,
calling a meeting of the citizens at 2
o'clock, Saturday afternoon, At the
appointed time, the meeting was called
to order. Chief Burgess Clement Dale
was called to the chair and G. L. Potter
acted as Secretary. A. O. Furst, Esq.,
and Mr. Daniel Rhoads, gave what
they knew of the extent of the fire,
which they recited to be attafcing.
Committees of three wete appointed
from each woid to solicit 'contributions
of'clothing and provisions or money.
Also a subscription list was opened and
liberally subscribed to. The whole
amount of all the donations in cleth
ing, food and cash was near a thous
and dollars. Thus by this timely res
ponse to an afflicted sister town, our
citizens erected a monument of their
generosity which will be never obliter

Iloyt's saying, "That they who give

Or break the silence dumb
Of their repose.

For patriot heroes dead,
