christians generally alive and active to
their duties on this line ?

We will have some comments to make

—The following, which we clip from
the Bellefonte Repuplican, proves but
too plainly that there is no love wasted
between brother Tutcn and the tax
man of that town. True, tax collect
ors are a grasping, heartless sett as a
rule, and a not veiy popular class of
officials, but they are a necessary evil
that can not be dispensed with as the
world goes, and the lest way is to hu
mor them and keep their good will as
much as possible. Really, we wouder
why Tuten is so mad over the tax chap:
Tr ere goes a Man. He wears glussps
and carries a bundle of Papers in his
Hand. These are tax Receipts, and
the man is a Tax Collector. His name
is William Jones, though some mean
people call him Billy Skin Flint. He
chews Plug Tobacco, aud don't care
much for Public Opinion. 110 is going
over to Cheapside to collect a man's
Taxes. He is a Brave Man and if the
man don't pay him he will nail his
uame on a Shade Tree, s > the people
will know all about it. The Collector
doesn't teach a Sunday-school class and

HOD. W. K. Alexander the jury render

was broght to recover pay for printing

during his ciodid i*y several years ago.
The d-n'M.ict /iinl wis w.iitol for with
no little anxiety by politicians gener
ally, and some solicitude by publishers
of newspapers. The precedent estab
lished will have some effect, I think,
on contracts made with editors, and
why should they not be paid for their
services? In the matter of common
wealth vs Millhei.n Election Board,
the grand jury iguored the bill, and or
dered the prosecutor to pay the costs,
and the same result was reached in the
case of commonwealth vs J. 11. Reif

half of the voters of your town were in
attendance as jurvmen or witnesses.

2,0 0,000 acres—larger than either Dela

LYNCHED IN KANSAS.
A Pennsylvania Man Sets Fire
to a House and Murders His
Locu HAVEN, PH., Jan. 18.—Intel
ligence has recently reached this place
that George Pfeiff w was hanged hy
lynch law in the State of Kansas, a
few weeks ago. Pfeiffer was raised in
tho vicinity of Howard, Centre county,
fifteen miles from this place, where his
father, who was a resectable farmer,
died about two years ago. His mother
is still living to grieve over her son's
lamentable end. George was married
to u Miss Retail, whose father is a well
to-do farmer in Brush Valley. Some
five years ago he lived in tho borough
of Howard, in a houso belonging to
Kev. Nathan J. Mitchell. The house
burned down under circumstances
which excited suspicion, having his
household goods insured for much more
than their value. As soon as tie eecur
ed the insurance money ho left with his
family tor the west. Last spring his
wife died, and he brought her remains
to her Centre county home for burial.
Last fall detectives ariested him at
Driftwood, Cameron county, on a
charge of robbing the mails in Kansas,
and he was convey id back to that
State for trial, and letters and newspa
per publications received at Howard,
report that he made a full confession to
the officers who had him in charge, not
only of the mail robberies, but also
c< nftwsed the crimes of arson and mur
der, stating that he set lire to Mr.
Mitchell's house, lor the purpose of
getting the insurance money on his
furniture with which to go west, and
that he poisoned his wife to obtain ten
thousand dollars life iusurance which
lie had on her. Tne practical business
view the jieople of Kansas took of the
matter was that it was useless to take
up the time of the courts, after such a
confession. Pfeiffer was summarily ex
ecuted. It is said that he left a large
safe, such as they used to use in ex
press cais, with his mother, which has
never beeu opened; it is very heavy,
and since his. crimes have come 'o
light is suposed to contain gold.
George was well raised, was not sus
pected of evil practices before he left
this country, and it is surprising how
rapidly he went to the bad. II is career
has plunged two respectable families in
to deep sorrow.
Here are two questions which are
startling in their directness and point
but which will be worth considering by
all who are lidding their money with
au avaricious grip. They are the
suggestions of a New York paper:
"Mr. A has just died worth £lO,-
000,<>00. When he meets Gjd he will
have two haid questions to answer,
