—Art exchange very truly says :
To make a newspaper interesting it
is necessary that the editor should be
made acquainted with the news. Many
people who know of items worth pub
lishing, quietly keep them to them
selves, and find fault with the paper
because no mention was made of them.
People whose friends die give the pa
per no mention of the fact, and then
feel hurt because an obituary does not
appear. People who get married feel
slighted if the announcement is not
made in the marriage column. We
cannot publish news or items of any
kind of whisk we have no knowledge,
and the only way we can get them is to
have those interested hand them in.
All we ask is that the fuels be given;
we will will put thpm i i proper shape.

—The Supreme Court has just decided
that church properties are not liable to
taxes for municipal improvements. The
city of Erie, in constructing a sewer iu
front of the First Universalist church,
assessed the ground for the number of
feet fronting on the street where the
sewer was laid. The church claimed
exemption under the law freeing tax
ation. grounds and buildings dedicated
to public worship, but. the city claim
ed that the assessment was not taxa
tion. The court sustained the church
and the decision has been reaffirmed by
the higher tribunal.
About two months ago, William Ha -
mor, living at Ilighspire, Pa., was hit
ten on the thumb by a Spitz dog. He
had the wound cauterized at once.
Last Saturday evening he began to
feel sick, and grew constantly worse.
He was attacked by terrible spasms,
and was bound to the floor to prevent
personal injury. During his delierium
he kept crying that he would die dur
ing the night. As evening came on
his condition became worse and worse.
When the sufferer felt the approach of
the terrible spasms ho requested to be
locked in a room alone, and when they
had passed he would knock on the door
for his friends to enter. In his consci
ous moments he told his friends that he
was going to die. and in one of these
lucid intervals he bade bis wife good
bye. About 9 o'clock Tuesday night
his awful sufferings ended in death.
Deceased was aged about thirty years.
One Hundred and Fifty-Five
POCOIIONTAS, Va., March 13.
A terrible gas explosion occured at 1
o'clock this morning in the Laurel
Caeek Mine,operated by the Southwest
improvement Company, at this place.
The Laurel Creek Mine is the only one
iii this section and has been operated
for about two years. It consists ot a
tunnel, running three-quarters of a
mile into the mountain side and a rail
road runs the entire length of the mine.
There are latent galleries at intervals*
The mines have been worked by relief
every six hours.
One hundred and fifty-five men were
at work there, and such was the force
of the explosion that every one was kill
ed and the fanning machine and engine
were blown three hundred feet away
from the entrance. A train of cars
drawn by a small engine was near the
entrance, moving in the mine at the
time. Four cars and the engine were
blown out, and a car axle was propelled
by the force of the explosion into the
side of a small frame house, several
hundred feet distant, occupied by two
miners, William Maloney and Jake Sex
ton. Both were asleep, having left the
mine about 0 o'clock. The flying plank
awoke them. Their escape was wonder
ful, the iron wheels of the car falling
by the side of their bunks. They struck
a light and, so far as can be learned,
were the first to realize the situation
and give the alarm.
Of those at work in or about the
mine not one was left to tell the story.
The people ot the little hamlet, whose
population numbers about five hundred,
were asleep when the explosion took
place. But the whole place was quick
ly roused and the scene that followed
beggars description.
The few living befogs who saw a puff
of smoke shoot from the mine and the
sudden upheaval of the engine and cars
rushed into the town with loud cries
for help. Men, women and children
were roused and as they took in the in
telligence there was a wild rush for the
scene of the disaster. Despite the cold
night, women as well as men rushed off
scantily clad. Experienced miners up
on reaching the scene were satisfied
that no man in the mines was alive.
The horror of the situation has been
intensified by the discovery that the
mines are on fire.
