Sir— -I have received your letter of the !
15th, lost., in which you enquire whether
a peddler of general merchandise can,
without incurring liability to pay special
tax as peddler of tobacco, take orders i
for tobacco and cigars, as he travels from j
place to place, which be afterwards puts j
up as bis store where be is a dealer in j
manufactured tobacco, and delivers on a!
succeeding trip from his peddlers wagon.
J|l reply that every peddler having to
bacco and cigars in his wagon as be trav
els from place to place which be deliv
ers to purchasers is presumed to be a I
peddler of tobacco, and unless be has bis
name painted upon bis wagon and can
exhibit a collectors certificate that he bas
paid a special tax to peddle tobacco, and
bas otherwise compiled with the, law. he
renders himself liable to the seisure
provided in section 59 of the act of July
20, 1868, as amended by the act of June
6.1872, and if be be found with tobacco
and cigars in broken packages, or not
stamped as the taw provides, be renders
bimself liable to the fine and imprison
ment provided in tbesame section. You
are correct in bolding such a peddler for
his special tax, and restricting him to
sales of original stamped packages only.*

Decoration Day was observed in

citizens assembled in the Prtebyu

ercises in the clrtrch consisted of singing
and an oration by John J. Wickham, Esq.,
which will be found elsewhere. The sol

present, and by their singing, added much
to the interest of the occasion. After the
church exercise were over, the citizens
formed themselves into line, and marched
with flowers to decorate the graves of our
fallen soldiers. Some farther remarks
were made at the Cemetery by Rev.
Lynch, of the M. E. Church. Although
the air was cool, there was a large aumbei

badan aversion to rocking chairs. They
are a humbug. Used as a lullaby lor sleep

drawing room, I have heard they are a
great resource ,Jfor, conversation. I know
they are like the weather fine openings

they will say, “dp take the rocking chair,
Miss M , you cap sit .more comfortably
in it.” As if any one eVer did sit com

are always in the way, great, lubberly,

“friendship,” never to be relied on. I
knew a liking turn into a dislike just,by a
young man rocking in a rocking chair.
They were young. The lady’s name was
Sophia, the man’s Richard and a
very nice couple they, would have made.
But he eat in a rocking chair. He rocked,
and you know how ridiculous a man does
look when he rocks. He wore blue socks;
it was summer time, very warm; the more
be rocked the more the blue socks were
visible beneath his low shoes. The faster
he rocked and, talked the faster the lady’s
fan flew. She began to get dizzy; sbe arose!,
excused herself and left the room, and
Richard left the bouse and never came
back. She wak the blue socks
that made her so disgusted. I declared
it was the rocking chair. What say you?
• wahdered far away from my
nice friend. Perhaps if I tell you she
has six children, lives in four rooms, and
oh $3O a month, does all her own work,
you may lose your interest in her. As
there is not much romance but reality,
and you know according to some, “we

The New Castle Gazette and Democrat
says: On Monday night last, Mr. James
W. Walton, of Slippery Rock township,
who had been sick for some time, com
mitted suicide while in a fit of temporary
insanity. About 3 o’clock, he hastily left
bis bed and rapidly proceeded toward his
barn closely followed by bis brother In
law, who having been in the same bed,
was aroused by Walton’s leaving. As
Walton soon disappeared from the view
of his brother-in-law, Mr. Winetnan, and
as he could not be found in or about the
barn, several were' awakened
and informed of Walton’s conduct, who
joined in the search and about 4 o’clock
in the morning Walton was found dead
in a coal bank at no &reat distance from
his residence. When found he was about
twenty feet from the entrance lying upon
his face with his arms and hands thrown
forward in water about twelve inches
deep.. He hadi evidently drowned himself
in that posiurtj. The Coroner, Dr J. K.
Pollock, was summoned, an inquest was
held, and a verdict was rendered in ac
cordance with the facts as above staled.
The deceased was about 35 years of age.

Wednesday evening, May 38th. The
church was handsomely trimmed with
pine, the gathering large, and Jhe affair
enjoyable throughout. The* exercises

Cartwright, of the M. E. Church, Rev-
M. L. W.ortman, our Pastor, and Mr
Coe, of Rochester, who also favored the

Tfie Waynvsburg Republican says:
While John Robinson’s great show was
at Rochester, Beaver county, a short time
since, one of his Sea Lions broke out of
its cage and took the Ohio river. John
offers a reward of one thousand dollars
for his capture; and being a contrary
bugger, it is supposed that in making for
the ocean that it'took up the .stream, and
is coming this way. It was seen at Mo
nongahela City, by Chill Hazzard, but
somehow getting a sniff of .the peniten
tiary there (that is to be) it plunged into
the raging slack water and headed south.
At Brownsville, it showed an inclination
to tarry awhile, but the place smelt go
strong of whisky that it soon bad its head
beneath oil Mongahela-tcoders, and struck
up for a purer cMme. The facipation of
the broad, placid waters of North Ten
Mile, and the sweet incense that rolls
down its surface, from off Green county’s
virtuous plains will doubtless lure it this
way. It may be expected along here
about next Sunday, and as a warning to
boys, we will state that it has eaten nine,
nr ten boys—always feasting on .boys on
Sundays ; and if tile banks of Ten Mile
are lined with boys and men fishing next
Sunday, as they have been for several
Sundays past, the sea monster will have'
an opportunity to eat a boy and a man
both the next Lord’s day.

The Waynesburg Republican says; Eli
Randolph, of Jefferson, was riding home
from Carmichaels last Saturday evening,
when he wasknocked off hishorse by some
unknown rascals, who beat and pounded
him in an unmerciful manner, then rob
bed him of what little money be had on
his person, ten or fifteen dollars. The
scoundrels not being satisfied with this
devlish Work, cut a large gash on the
horse’s hip, which it is thought, will kill
it. No cause can be assigned, but it is
supposed to be tf spite engendered by the
late election.

Dr*. Oldslinc* PltUbarsh, P«.,
Our readers have for sonu timebeen advised
through the columns of oar pipjr of the method
of the treatment of the Drs. Oldshne.
Their mode of treating diseases, althottgb some
what peculiar,, is based upon physiological and
pathological facts ;,and the true nature and
of diseases are accurately determined by ocular
inspection, chemical amlysis and microscopic ex
amination of the urine.
This is no idle theory; bat their entire system
of practice is based upon fixed principles of sci
ence. The m tried success of these gentlemen In.
caring the worst maladies known to the profes
sion is not only convincing evidence of the cor
rectness of their, theory, bat affords ample proof
of their professionsr skill and ability. Some of
the most respectable citizens of this and sur
rounding counties can testily from personal ex
perience as to the truth ofthls statement, and we
can heartily recommend the Drs. Oldshue. They
are scientific! physicians but gentlemen
of the highest culture and probity.
Their offices are No. 132 Grant street, Pitts
burgh, Pa.,
Fishing Excursion . A special
train, consisting of an engine, baggage
car and a Palace cat left Harrisburg on
the 26‘U ult., having on board Gen. Simon
Cameron, Hon. J. D. Cameron, M. S.
Quay, Mr.He island, of tjie Lancaster
Examiner , Colonel Fortney, of Lancaster,’
and a few other gentlemen. The excur
sionists were bound for some point above
Williamspoit, on the Elmira branch of the
N. C. R. R., to spend a few days among
the trout streams in that section.
Fish Comniiftsio?iers~The Gover
nor has appointed the following named
gentlemen, commissioners under the pro*
visions of the fish laty passed by the Leg
islature list winter; Howard J. Reeder,
Northampton county; James Duffy, Lan*
caster county, and Benjamin L; Hewitt,
<>f Blair county.
Ice Cold Sparkling Soda Water, flavored with
Pure Fruit Syraps, always fresh from Hugo An
driessen’s Marble Fountains.
Utedietnal Poisons on the Wane.
The patriarchs took no mercury, no bismuth, no
iodine, no bromide of potassium, no strychoria,
no quinine. Happy old gentlemen 1 they did not
Uven know of the existence of these “specifics,'*
land yet they lived until it seemed as if Death had
forgotten them. Their medicines were herbs and
iloota. They have left this fact on record, and the;
world seems to be now taking note of it and re
turning lo the first principles of medication. Hos
tetler's Stomach Bitters, the purest and most effi
cacious vegetable restorative of the day, is also
the most popular. Thousands ot persons who
only a few years ago believed implicitly in all the
poisons wh’ch figure in the pharmacoepia, now pro
nounce this palatable tonic and alterative an ail
sufficient remedy fot dyspepsia, nervous debility,
constipation, bilious complaints, headache, in
tsrmittedt fevers, and all the ordinary disturban
ces of the stomach, the liver, the discharging or
gans and the brain. The time U not far distant
when most of the powerful and venomous drugs
now so recklessly administered by practioners of
the “heroic * school, in cases that might easily be ,
controlled by milder treatment, will be utterly
discarded by all philosophical physicians. As it
is, the thinking public, who are general ly ahead
of the professionals, have already put the uanger
ons preparation aside an I adopted Hostetler’s Bit
ters in theit stead as a safe andlexcereht house
hold medicine, adapte 1 to almost every ailmei t
except the organic and deadly contagious diseases.
For more than twenty years thlitfamovs restora
tive and preventive has been annually strengthen
ing its hold upon the public confidence, and it
now takes the lead of every advertised medicine
manufactured in this country.
