—On Monday afternoon Mr. George
Geisewite of Brushvalley barely escap
ed severe injuries or even death. He
was driving a two-horse team and on
his return'from Coburn undertook to
race with the hackdrivers of town.
When they neared town he stood up in
his wagon urging his horses to their
utmost speed. The result was that he
lost his balance—sorry to say he was a
little unbalanced before—and tumbled
backward out of the wagon box, fill
ing under one of the front wheels, which
passed over his breast. He was pick
ed up and put on his wagon, not being
hurt severely,as it seemed. It was lucky
was that his wagon was empty, other
wise he would have been crushed by the
weight. He took charge of the lines
and drove home a3 well as he could.
WEST BRANCH CAMP.— The fifteenth
annual session of the West Branch
camp meeting will commence at Wayne
Station, Clinton county, Tuesday Au

great deal of work will be done to put
the grounds in first class condition and
to add to their actractiveness. The
rent of t6nls and price of board will be

—The entertainment held in the M.
E. church at this place, on Saturday
evening the 24th inst,, by the Musical
Association, with Prof. Kurzenknabe
as musical conductor, proved to be a
perfect success. Am sorry to state
that the patronage was not as liberal as
it should have been, the church not be
ing comfortably tilled, Hope hereafter
if a like entertainment be held and for
so good and noble a cause as for the
benefit of our different Sunday schools,
the house may be so well filled that
staudiug room will bo at a premium.
The music rendered throughout the
evening was very difficult, but never
theless, through the careful and thor
ough training of their able instructor
Prof. Kurzenknabe, it was well render
ed, which gives much credit to both
the class and the instructor.
The instrumental music furnished by
Mr. George J. and John E. Kurzen
knabe, was highly appreciated by the
audieuce. They can be classed among
the best musicians that ever visited
The choruses by the class were con
sidered very good, and received much
encomiums. The ones entitled "Hark I
Appolo strikes the Lyre,""Hail 1 Smil
ing Morn" and the closing piece
"March of the men of Harlech," were
particularly very much liked. The so
los sang by Mrs. B. F. Hengst, Mrs.
W. F. Colyer, Miss Jeunie Deininger
and Miss Minn ie Hartman, were well
rendered productions. The duets en
titled "Holy Mother, Guide his foot
steps," "Beautiful moonlight" and
"Moonlight on the Rhine, V w ere rich
treats and were well received by the
audience. The duet entitled "Jesus
Saviour of my Soul," sang by Mr. John
E. and Miss Fora F. Kurzenknabe, de
serves special mention as one of the
finest vocal executions we ever had the
pleasure of listening too. The follow
ing quartettes were also highly spo
ken of: "Moonlight on the Lake,"
"Luna," "Trust her not" and the two
male quartettes sang by Mr. A. R. Al
exander, Dr. J. F. Harter, Mr. R. A.
Bumiller aud Mr. W. M. Hartman,
The comic quartette "Jack & Jill" was
very much liked. I will close hy
wishing the Association much success
in the future. Hoping they will con
tinue in their good work, and thus by
earnest labor of its members improve
from time to time, so as to make each
succeeding entertainment still better,
and consequently still more highly ap
preciated by its patrons.

Mr. Editor :
If you will spare me a
little space in your paper I will endeav
or to write something of interest to
your many readers. I am holding
forth in Summit County, Northern
part of Ohio, in which lies the main
part of the renowuixl country, which
I will attempt to describe. It is a
broken or rolling country, slopes to
ward the great Lakes, and one of the
most fertile spots in the United States.
All its expanse is excellent for farming,
with the exception of the low-lands or
swamps. As they are covered with a
heavy growth of bunch-grass, they can
not be excelled as grazing lands. Ohio
is well watered by springs, small and
numerous lakes aud streams. The
people are supplied with plenty of
wood, all kinds of oak, hickory, maple,
ash, button-wood, chestnut, tamarack,
&c. The soil is of a rich, black, sandy
loam from one to four feet deep,resting
in most places on a clay subsoil, As
it is not affected as soon by drought, as
the soil of Pennsylvania, it seldom fails
topioduce abundant crops. Wneat
yields (as they tell me) from twenty to
fifty bushels per acre. Oats from thir
ty to seventy-five, corn from one hun
dred to one hundred and fifty. Wheat
promises an abundant harvest for this
year, oats looks well, corn is making
little headway so far as the cool nights
were detrimental to the growth of
that cereal, the last few days were nice
and warm, temperature being 92. ou
"Ascension Day." All kinds of vege
tables do well here, fruit is promising
a very large crop,except peaches. Obi
os net-work of Rail Roads the many
navigable rivei s and on the North the
large Lakes, can not fall to make it a
great market. Society is very good,
there being an excellent system of pub
lic schools, having nine month pub
lic school in place of five or six as we
have in Centre Co. There are three
school directors for every school in the
country. The manufacture of stone
ware Sewer pipes cannot be excelled by
any state, and it is a curiosity to a
stranger's eye. The old "Buckeye" is
also ahead in the manufacture of farm
ingimplements. Time,space aDd even
ing shade will not permit me to say
any more. But,young men,take Beech
er's advice. He in his recent lecture in
New York said "If I was a young man
I would go West.
