vented the fire to spread any further.

which communicated to Valentine

of that gentleman's groceries. It is
believed that the fire was again the
work of an incendiary.

weeks' suffering with diptherla and
scarlet fever, was called away from
this world of sorrow and trials to join
the Heavenly host on last Monday. ' To
say that the little girl was dearly belov
ed by her parents would be but a faint
expression of their deep affection (or
the child. But God lias given and God
has taken away and while the bereaved
parents are the subject of sincere sym
pathy their burdened hearts wiy find
much consolition in the thought that
though God's way seems dark and haid

—We see by the Seliusgrove Times
that W. B. Porter, who sometime ago
gave a number of entertainments in
this town, has its many acquirements
as a pugilist as he has as an actor. lie
closed a week's engagement at New
port and on the last night a gang of
toughs attempted to create a disturb
ance. The door keeper called for as
sistance, when Porter seized a police
man's club, leaped from the stage and
began to use it freely on the heads of
the unruly members of the audience.
Several of the toughs were knocked
down, and one of them, Ilaryey Wing
ert, had his head split open. During
the melee the ladies screamed in terror
and flocked on the stage. Miss Katie
Ilowe, of Newport, fainted, and it was
at first thought she had died from the
fright. There wtre no arrests, the
Sterling Comedy Company being per
mitted to quietly leaye the town.

—A sure way to catcli cold is to enter
and depait from houses which are per
haps at summer heat inside while the
air outside is at zero with the same
amount of wraps. They will not lay off
their tight fitting outer garments while
in the hot room whioh makes
them exceedingly warm at the
time and chills them when they
leave the house. Much injury to health
would be avoided by abolishing this
bad fashion. Another habit which is
very detrimental to the comfort and
ease of the public is to occupy the seats
at places of public entertainment s with
the high and large hats which fashion
prescribe for the ladles this season.
Mrs. President Cleveland sets a com
mendable precept to the ladies of the
National capital by removing her bo n
uet when entering such a place and
they follow tier ex unple almost univer
sally. Thus it will not be necessary to
twist off your neck in attempting to
look around a big hat.

According to custom this will be the
last issue of the JOURNAL for the year
1886. I have occupied the position of
correspondent to this paper for about
18 months or more. During that time
I have suffered considerable abuse at
the hands of people with whom I daily
associate. I was asked to do this work
for the friends and patronsof the JOUR
NAL, most of whom are your friends
and ray friends, liying in distant lands,
and who in this way receive more in
telligence in regard to the happenings
of our town and vicinity than they
would through a letter, AS to "who is
ttie Aaronsburg correspondent to the
JOURNAL ?" a question that has often
been asked during the past year, it mat
ters little to your readers. As a general
tiling the items are all the more inter
esting if the writer is not known. We
will say in this connection through the
coiums of your paper, so all may see
and know it, that if I have caused any
ill feeling or offended any parties I ask
their forgiveness and will try in the fu
ture not to touch that sensitive spot so
easily provoked. In conclusion I wish
you all a merry Christmas and a happy
New Year. ANOTHER.
A Merry Christmas unto all.
