Read their advertisement. —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?

KEEN, Teacher, 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. tf —Last Friday afternoon a fellow by the fiame of John Shafer from Bello fontecame to town with a nico horse and buggy and stopping in front Of Win. S Musser's hotel ofeered them for sale almost immediately 011 bis arrival. Several parties knowing the horse to be from the livery stable of Mr. Rush Larimer at that place aud considering the pries asked just about 0110 half too small took suspicion and had the fel low afibsted. After having telegraph ed to Mr. Larimer, who replied that Shafer had only borrowed the rigging the man was taken back to Belief on te by constable Maiz\ r , 1 —lf you want a suit of furniture, or 1 even a single piece, remember that Camp, at Centre Ilall, will sell you as low, if not lower than you could buy anvwhete—besides which you can go to Centre Hall and return home from any part of Penns Valley in a day, and in that way save expense.

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 hold on the log, and it fell, crushing Willey to death. Thus, of the hve men at work on the building, only two re mained alfve.

Most persona are not aware probably that there ia a law in force with a pen alty attached for the selling of explo sive oils after night—such as coal oil, Ac. People should by nil mean? try and buy their coal oil in day time, as well as trim aud till their lamps in day time.— Ex. 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.— Ex. No Graveyard Companies in Ohio. 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 men. 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 Money. 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.
