Hkatt Barea —EAtirEpAi* Accidekt.—On
Sunday last we were visited hy the heaviest min
storm of tlie season, accompanied with sharp light
ning «wa tlnnder. It came down in 'perfect'tor
rents, overflowing thh gitttera, and filling cellars
in all parts of the town.; All the streams in this
vi-initv were ranch swollen, and considerable dam
age done to Bail-Road bridges. A bridge on ther:
branch, road, below ; Elrado was considerably |
ini ansi, but not rtkdßciant to stop the passage of
'trains. At Tipton Station the abutment of the
Kail-Bond-bridge, across the Little Juniata, was
swept away, and a freight train Eastward, on Mon
day morning,' ran over it ere the train could be
stopped. The engine kept the tail down into the
river Itpd up again to the traek outlie opposite
side, hut the tender was thrown from the track,
and it. with some fourteen freight cars, some of
which were loaded with coal oil, were piled up in
tli'c river. 11 v some means tire was communicated
to the broken cars, and toon the whole was a sheet
} of Haiuc. the oil causing the Haines to spread more
rapidly. When the watchman waved the danger
signal, as the traiti was approaching the break,
Samuel Miller, fireman on the engine, left the tank
and attempted to run back over the train. He wan
last seen jumping from :thc,first to the second car,
jus! as they were going over the übutiiieiit. Since
that time no trace of him can lie tumid, and it is
supposed that he was consumed with the burning
curs. His cup was found in, mine dis
tance below the bridge. He was a single man,
and resided at Fostoria.
F. S. Since the above was written Millers
hotly has been found. It was in the water Mow
the bridge.
JJotwithstandingthe inclemency of tin- wea
ther. the sale of condemned Government horses. |
at this place, on Thursday and Friday lust, was i
well attended by fanciers of horse-flesh, and the I
animals were bid oft' rapidly at prices ranging i
from *1 up to *lO2. Quite a number of them I
were good nags, and the purchasers may realize
hnndsomdly out of their ; bargains. A number,
however, were so much dolapidated. that when
once down it required the assistance of several
(erne rails to put them on 'their pins again. One
old stager, purchased by an Irishman, after bfiing
tied to a stake, took a notion to. hack a little, in
consequence of which the rope around his neck
tightened sufficiently to stop his wind,
he fell, and in falling broke his hack. \V hen the
Hiliernian purchased him he had not the “ green
hacks" to pay for him, and started ott to get his
monev exchanged. While away the mishap oc
curred. He afterwards purchased another nag.
amt on coming forward to settle, found himselt
charged with the broken hacked steed. Notwith
standing the Government officials endeavored to
impress the fact upon him that he had purchased
the horse, the Irishman "couldn't see it.' inasmuch
usthev had refused to take Ids money when he first
uttered it. If one-half of these horses live it will be
2 s timer than we expect. .

Tut PniVATi; SotuitH. —Somebody says, and,
we tile sentiment, that if there is a being
in the world who is deserving of private alfection
and public gratitude, it is the soldier who marches
ns a private in the ranks of the army, to light for
his country, offers his blood and life as a sacrifice
lor the maintenance of the Union and the Consti
tution. And yet how seldom it is that they get
the honor and reward tfieir services entitle them to.
It is the private who carries the gun ; it is the pri
vate who marches on foot through mud, frost und
snow ; it is tile, private who erects bridges over
swift streams, and. real's the lofty fort ideations ;
and it is tile private who, with the bayonet set,
charges on the deadly rifle-pits and against the
squared columns of the enemy ; and yet how sel
dom is it that he receives the honors and rewards
of ids noble conduct.
Have You Books to Bisu f —lf so, bring
them along at once. Of course you have a volume
or two of some magazine, or valuable newspaper,
which you intend to have bound and preserve, but
ten chances to one yon will neglect the matter un
til some of the numbers are lost, strayed, or stolen,
und then your volume will Ike destroyed. Look
around now and see whether you can find all the
nnmliers. and if successful, bring them right along to
the ‘•Tribune. Bindery" and have it bound up in
good style. Then, instead of being a trouble to
your better half, in the way of faking cure of them,
they will he nn omatocm to your library and an
evidence of your care and taste Don’t let val
uable hooks he destroyed for want of binding.
If you have wont out the first binding bring them
along and havq it reriewed.
Anotiieu Warning. —On Friday last, a little
boy, ten years of age, named Miller Theodore
Dougherty, living at Mapleton, Huntingdon coun
ty, fell from a freight train and had both his arms
ent off. He was in the habit of jumping on and
off freight trains passing that station, just as we ob
serve many boys doing in this place ; but the last
and fatal time came. He was picked upland ta
ken home, where lie lingered \in agony uutjl the
following evening, when death ehded his sufferings.
Will the boys of this place hoed the warnihg and
no longer imperil their lives or limbs in this man
ner. Parents, do keep your bhildren away from
the trains. Unless you exerqise your authority in
this respect you need not be surprised should they
be brought homo to you in the condition that Mil
ler Dougherty was taken to Iris mother.
Suad-ow ! Shad'! —We are in luck this week.
The heavy proprietor of the “Altoona Market Car,’<
,J. Holtzman, honored the Jhnior, a day or two
since, with one of the finest shad of the season, such
as Jake always brings up. Good things generally
may always be had 01V the arrival of the Altoona
Market Car. Scarcely had the above present been
sent to the culinary’ department, ere Jake Wilson
despatched a small Ik)V with two fine specimens of
Susquehanna’s famous finny fish, with instructions
that he convey them to the printers. Thank you,
Sir. A repetition of the offence will meet with no
resentment. Jake; Wilson receives ,his shad by
express, fine and fresh, together with other kinds of
j fish and all the vegetables in Reason.

Beware ok I'urk. —Of this meat Dr. Trail
writes rather upp .ilingly: “In condemning it we i
know we assail ila- prejudice of many, ami ofl'end
the ignorance uf But the best teachers on
the subject of health utterly condemn its use. If
is gross and conflicting. There are marks ol dis
ease in all swine, ami in those most highly fattened
disease is most conspicuous. We have been sur
prized and enlightened by the fact that many far
mers who annuallv take to market large quantities
of pork, use but linle in their families, convinced
by experience that it is not wholesofne tor them.
Doubtless there too much flesh food used by our
people ; but the ox and the sheep are not naturally
unclean creatures, as the hog is. The.hog, like
the buzzard, is a natural scavenger. Tel him till
his office, and in the end, be converted into oil.
light, and lubrication, and its grosser material into
soap-grease. M
Fatal Accident. —On this (Thursday) morn
ing, as au old man, named liodgers, and his son,
hailing from Philadelphia, were passing through
the Kailroad cut below Blair Furnace, three miles
below this place, they met a W estward bound train
and stepped over to the Eastward track out of the
way. It up|jears that a train was also approach
ing from the West, which, they did not perceive,
and both were struck by the engine and thrown
from the track. The old man was instantly killed
and the boy considerably cut about the trace hut
not dangerously injured. They, were put upon a
train and brought up to this place, and the boy is
now at the Union Hotel. They were m very des
titute circumstances, begging their hrejul as they
Still AnoTiiku JiAiLROAD Accident. — Au
old woman named Mary fountain, residing some
where near Kit tailing point, was struck by one
of tile pushers on die mountain division, on Wed
nesday morning lust, and knocked from the track
and considerably bruised and cut about the body'.
Her injuries are said to lie only flesh wounds, but her
escape from serious hurt, if not instant death, was
most miraculous. She was walking on the track
at the time, and did not notice the approach of the
engine in time to; avoid it, the breaking of the
whistle cord preventing the engineer from giving
the proper signal:

one feels any the lieltcr of their visit. They were
bht a reproduction of the performances of such in
stitutions for half a century past, if, in fact, they
were as creditable as those of \Veich and Sticknej
in their palmy days. They no longer create the
excitement, or present the grand “entree” which
accompanied the advent of the old establishments
named The days of circuses are.w«ll-nigh played

Et.i)KK Bcsh.l— One of our exchange newspa
pers says insects never touch the elder bush. The
leaves of the eldth, scattered over cucumbers, cab
bages, squashes,; etc., etc., subject to the rav
ages’of insects, effectually shield them. Tim plum
and other fruits may be saved by placing on the
branches and through them, bunches of elder
leaves. It is said that ants will not corns about
where elder leaves arc scattered. This is easily
tried. and if successful, of great importance.

prevent itfrom lulling out, make it soil and silky, cleanse
it and the scalp from impuiifieß and humors, and entirely

any hair dressing. It restores the natural shading of one
hair with another, which gives it a lively upperance in*
stead of the dull uniform black of dyes.
