ing furniture and house furnishing
dealers, of Milton, last week delivered
a very fine lot of furniture,consisting of
parlor suit, chamber suits, sideboard,
china, glass and queensware, to Mr.
J. F. Torbert. This firm has the larg
est establishment of its kind in this

—Some of our ladies are experiment
ing on a new and very novel piece of
cultivation. They take a tumbler of
salt, keep it damp and warm and in a
few weeks the salt commences to grow
long and hangs over the edges of the
tumbler in long while streams.
Wouldn't be a bad idea to cultivate
a tumbler full of 25ct pieces; for all we
know they might grow over the edges
too and finally get the size of dollar
pieces? TFouldn't that be pleasant *

A BUSY PLACE.— One of the busiest
places in Tenns Valley is the MILL
HEIM MARBLE WORKS. Fine monu
ments and elegant head stones are
made in the boat style of the art and
in quick succession. The establish
ment has earned a reputation for good
work and fair dealings second to none
in this part of the state, and luts a
wide spread an I increasing patronage.

KUMARKAHLE TRAGEDY.— At a late
barnraising cn the plantation of Major
Dews, in feowan county, North Caro
lina, John Held and Peter Joseph, two
of the worktneu on the building, got
into a quarrel. Held threw an axe at
Joseph, the keen t blade splitting bis
head in two and killing him instantly.
As Held threw the axe he lost his foot
hold and fell from the building break
ing his neck. Dhree men were ou the
ground at the time (James Cephas,
Richard Willey, and Ned Bloodgood,)
raising a heavy log. Cephas became so
excited at the tragedy that he lost his

NKW DIOORUIICAL DICTIONARY.— An excellent
feature of the N w I'dith n of YVebntei's, Una
bridged Dictionary. Just Issued, Is the New Bio
graphical Dlotlonary, In which are given the
nantes of nearly ten thousand noted persons of
ancient and modern times, with a brief state
ment of the dates of their birth and death, their
nationality, profession, etc. This Is designed
for purposes of ready reference, to answer the
questions which often arise as to when and
w here certain persons lived, and the elm racier
of tbolr achievement*. It contains many names
of persons who are still living, and the pronun
ciation of each name is given.
Tim IDIOT who "didn't know it was
loaded" was last heard front in Mary
land, where he shot and, it was at
first supposed, mortally wounded a
young lady at whom he had playfully
pointed a pistol. There is no law to
give these people sense*enough to know
better, probably, but it seems as if
there should be a law to deal with them
as those are dealt with who shoot peo
ple knowing the pistols to be loaded.—
No Graveyard Companies in
COLUMBUS, March 21. —The Fidelity
Mutual Aid Association, of Philadel
phia, some time ago made application
for a license to do business in this
Stale, but was refused by commission
er Moore. The Supreme Court was
asked for a mandamus to compel the
issuing of the license, and tho same
was refused to-day. This will exclude
all Pennsylvania Mutuals from Ohio
and drive away many that have already
established a large business here.
Mason's Sentence too Heavy.
WASHINGTON, March 21.—Judge
Advocate General Swaim has made a
report to the Secretary of War upon
the Sergeant Mason case in which, it is
understood he >e:ouiei.ds a modifc tin
of the latter's sentence. The ground
upon which he bases this recommenda
tion is that Guiteau was nut in a posi
tion whore lie could possibly haye been
killed by Mason when the latttr fired
the snot and that under such circum
stances the charge of assault with in
tent to k: 11 cannot be sustained. This
view of the case is said to be supported
by a long line of precedents.
Salaries of New York Clergy
Speaking of salaries, t lie Broadway
Tabernacle has advanced the pastor
(Taylor) to $16,00 >, which is the largest
chric.il salary in New York. This is
a judicious method of keeping him
from accepting any other call. Trinity
has been giving its rector (Dix)sl2,ooo
and a house worth $5.0 4) a year. He
will probably be advanced to $20,000.
John llaill has SIO,OOO, but will also
be soon advanced in a proportionate
degree. Paxton, fornaelyof Washing
ton, has been called by one of our opu
lent Presbyterian churches at SI2JX)O a
ytar. One Baptist preacher (McArthur)
is said to be equally well paid, while
two of his denomination (Bridgeman
and Arraitage) have each SIO,OOO. Oth
ers receive from $6,000 down to one
half that sum.
Fancies About a Millionaire's
A correspondent sends tlie following
calculations with regard to the reputed
wealth of William 11. Vanderbilt: Es
timating it at $300,000,000, to count it,
at the rate of 82 each second and ten
hours a day, it would take 11 years,
151 days, c hour's and 40 minutes. In
gold it would weigh 781 tons and 500
pounds, requiring a train of 70 cars <>i
10 tons capacity to move it; in silver,
10,714 tons and 571 pounds, requiring
1,072 cars for is transportation. In $1
bills, lying lengthwise in a continuous
line, it would reich 34,910 miles, 162
rod*, and 7 feet, or entirely around the
globe and along its diameter with 1,910
miles, 162 rods and 7 feet to spare, or
more than one-seventh of the distance
from our planet to the moon. If laid
"widthwise," these £1 bills would
reach 14,500 miles, 151 rods, and 8 feet
or from New York City to more than
30 miles beyond Cheyenne, added to
half the circumference of the globe.
In $1 bills it would spread a carpet 103
feet and 3 inches wide and 86 mi!e long;
a carriage drive 4 feet and 11 inches
wide and over 1,80 miles long; or a
comfortable promenade 2 feet and 5J
inches in width, and more than 3,612
miles in length. In S2O gold pieces,
lying side by side, it would construct a
sidewalk 43 inches wide, but a 'few
I• . •
rods short of 10 miles long; in silver
dollars, lying contiguous, a street 100
feet wide and 8| miles in length.

PITTSBURG, 3/arch 26.
Never has there been such a curiosi
ty displayed at a funieral in Allegheny

six or seven hours by a stream of peo
ple that kept constantly pouring into
I lie house and a large sum was realized
The .Mayor learned, of tho proceedings
and the Chief of Police stopped them
and sent police there to take charge of
the house and body. Rev. E. It.
Donehoo refused to conduct tho funer
al exercises because the body was uot
buried on Saturday. Rev. E. M. JFood
conducted the services this afternoon.
Tho house was packed and probably
ten thousand people swarmed tho
stree*s and alleys adjoining. The Al

ed by the managers that no murderers
should*be buried there, "Tho remains
were interred in Uuiondttle Cemetery
