ifool~The New Clip and the
natlook.-tte New York Bulletin of
1 i3ib iDBt., says : The course of the
1 q] market for the past few years has
*° en such as to Impress npdn all clashes
f dealers io that staple the importance
° tueir interests of more caul lone operat
ic and of the utter avoidance of all
‘oecalation. The time is passed, when
L. w onl markets of this country can be
easily controlled in the interests of spec
clatnrs. The magnitude of our. clip
fflicht interpose no serious obstacle, per
haps, as a concert of action between the
powers and dealers—whose interests at
fgaiast those of the manufacturers are
rientical— might easily be arranged.
There is, however, in the foreign dip a
lerer with which the manufacturers can
ao fit control the course of our market
gs to protect themselves from any com*
bination seeking to effect anything more
than s legitimate advance sympathizing
with improved values abroad. Within
tie past few years American manufac
tarew have learned the value to them of
tie power which they thus control, and
•o wield it has become a matter of little
difficulty in view of the growing cl*«e*
regs of our commercial relations with
Europe. Experience thus far has proved j
tbai it is i“ the long run to the beat in
terests of our manufacturers to avoid, as
&r as possible, heavy operations on their
c wd account, either in the wool produc
■lQg markets of our own or other coun
tries. If conducted independently of
speculation, trade is more satisfactory!
then the supplies of manufacturers are
drawn chiefly through the regular chan:
ceis. To the few who are able to conj
. u.V; for their full year’s supply of domes-,
uc atthe beginning of the season, buy*
ini: direct from the farmer may be an
advantage. But the purchases of manu
'acturers in the iutemr-are almost in
variably made at a higher figure than
Ei-tern dealers can afford to pay, and a
rnce of prices in the.country based up
■c the figures paid by the consumers is
alsvsvs of disadvantage, and almost in
variably a break has to follow before the
W‘.-i moves freely into the Eastern mar
kets, or the dealers here who purchase
at the prices manufacturers can afford to
pay have to suffer a Joss before the
stocks are worked up. The experiences
■of I '*7l had the effect of keeping manu
facturers at home last year, and,-as the
rule, their purchases in the interior
have been unimportant thus far this
year. A few, chiefly the buyers of de-
laine wools, have gone into the country
for their supplies, but the buyers for
Eislern houses have suffered much from
competition with consumers, and al
though there has been an occasional
reactionary feeling, the clips taken up
hm generally been at prices which
dealers were willing to pay. Allowing
for commission, interest, freight, shrink
age, etc,, ind ten cents per pound is only
s fair margin between the purchasing
price in the country and the selling rale
iere. This leaves the dealer barely a
profit, and as 48@51c is the best range
tiitcaa be quoted upon average clips in
tiiis market, it is evident that buyers
cannot afford to pay more than 40c in
the country for clips as they run. The
range quoted upon actual sales in Ohio
and Michigan is 40(g15c, with few trans
actions except of very choice lots above
42, ?43c, Old X and XX Ohio fleeces are
worth here to-day and allow
ing these figures to be maintained upon
the new wools when the supply of old
has run out, there will be no more than
a fair margin for^ealers.
The course of the foreign markets for
some lime past has been in favor of buy
ers, and the outlook upon fine wools in
.’dicates that foreign supples will be
available at a price competing closelj
our wools at the current figures.
The supplies in our seaboard markets at
present are pretty full, and the manu
facturer, whose wants just now are not
pressing, is in a position to act with
considerable independence. Dealers
cannot afford to risk heavy purchases
except at perfectly safe prices, and the
r snli must be a concession on the part
l / factuer to meet views of buy
er;J. or a looking up of the bulk of the
c ip in the country. Our reports of the

Terrible Crime in
hwe to record this morning the details of
a shocking story of connubial infelicity in
fintler, and a deliberate attempt to pop.
on a man and bis children. With no de
sire to prejudice the case of parties now
under arrest for supposed complicity in
the crime, we merely state what are
known to be facts:
Last Friday morning, Mr. John Sny
der and two of his children, living in
Springdale, in the hor»mgh of Butler,
were taken*violently ill at the breakfast
table, with all the symptoms of having
been poisoned. Drs. Graham and Bred in,
of the bomngh, were at once called In
and administered antidotes. The patients
after a few hours were much better, and
the physicians pronounced them ont of
danger. The opinion of the physicians
was that poison of some icind had been
taken, bnt in euch targe-doaes as to pro-,
dace nausea sufficient x to counteract its
deadly effect. Accordingly, an analysis
was made of different articles on the
breakfast table. The result discovered a
large quanity of arsenic in the coffee.
This furnished a satisfactory cause for the
illness of Mr. Snyder and the children,
bul light was still wanting on the ques
tion of who put the poison into the cof
fee. It was suggested by some of the
neighbors that Mr. Snyder should at once
move away from his own house to that of
one of bis relatives, and take his children,
.with him, but this he steadfastly refused
The condition of the three persons
poisoned on Friday continued to improve
until Saturday evening, when Mr. Snyder
was suddenly taken ill again with the
same symptoms as before. Again the
physicians were summoned, and they at
once pronounced it another case of pol&
oning by arsenic. But, as in the previous
attempt, an over doae had been given,
and the violent vomiting produced saved
the life of the intended victim. On Sun*
day, Mr. Snyder was removed to the
house of his brother in the south end of
the borough, in accordance with the re
peated demands of all his friends.
An investigation was then begun as to
the sale of arsenic at the different drug
stores, and resulted in an important piece
of iatormation. v One John W. Foreman
had recently bought a quantity of the
poison fur the ostensible purpose of kill
ing a dog, and suspicion at once fastened
upon him. This suspicion wag strength
ened by the fact that Foreman lived in
one part of the doable house, the other
part of which was occupied by Snyder
and bis family. It is also stated that
Foreman has of late paid more attentions
to Mrs. Snyder than to his own wife, and
that the latter left home two or three
weeks since on account of neglect and
Foreman was arrested on Sunday night,
on an information made before Justice
Keck, and lodged in jail. Yesterday
noon Mrs. Soyder was aho arrested aud
committed to the same safe keeping. It
is understood that the accused will have
a hearing at once—possibly to-day.
Mr. Snyder is about thirty-five years of
age, aud a steady, hard working man. He
says that, until Sunday last, he never had
the remotest suspicion of the l<»ss of his
wife's true affection. He baa always re
garded Foreman as a friend, and treated
him accordingly. The separation of
Foreman and bis wife be supposed to be
wholly on account of differences of their
own, which in no way concerned him.
Foreman is younger than Snyder, and
is said to have been wild when a boy. He
was brought up in Butler, but went away
upon bis marriage, with a lady of consid-
erable property. Last fall be returned to
Butler withbis wife, and went to house
keeping in the house with the Snyders.
Many of his neighbors have seen more oi
his domestic disagreements and more of
his devotion to Mrs. Snyder than seems
to have come to the knowledge of the un
suspecting husband of the Utter.
Mrs. Snyder is near the age of Fore
man. She is said to put a bold front on
the matter of her imprisonment, and to
be rather defiant than otherwise.
The usually quiet town of Butler is,
very naturally, greatly excited over the
occurrences herein recited. We suppress
many rumors and surmises which have
reached-us —one implicating another wo
man in the poisoning—preferring to
await a dispassionate and judicial inves
tigation of the whole case. The facts
will be laid before our readers as they
shall thus be determined.— Pitts. Com.

seven hundred feet, to lake Chautauqua, in suffi

What is the talus or Lm Iksubarcs t
l£t the reader make a practical and personal ex*
aminatlon of the subject. Have yon a family de
pendent on you for support? If so you have a du
ty to perform. If you are engaged to active busi
ness, consider whit 'would probably happen If
your plans were set aside and wore
called in to f lose up your affairs. Your creditors
clamorous, your labors suddenly ended; your
property sacrificed to the highest bidder. There
might be little left for your family. All this might
be the result If death shou id overtake you next
week, or next year, and yon have no lease of life.
Yon may be strong and healthy to-day, but are
you sure (bat health, strength and life will be
yours to-morrow? You ought to guard against
this contingency. You insure your property, why
not Insure your life 1 Is it much more valuable ?
Suppose you have an insurance m the Mutual Life
Insurance Company of New York equal to the
amount of your Indebtedness, your wife or your
friends, at your death, then have the means in
hand to pay all that yon owe. The warehouse,
the store, the goods and merchandise are free
from all incumbrance. No sacrifices need be
made. Your family have property which, by your
forethought, they are enabled to preserve, and
will furnish the means of support.
The longer Insurance is postponed, the greater
will be the premium. Nor can it be obtained upon
any terms by those not in good health. Hence the
immediate attention to this matter.
Tfie Bailer Citizen says: It is with no
ordinary pleasure that we can say the
crops of our county will, from present ap

crop, from information that we can rely
upon from all parts of the county, will be
very good. Its present look is quite
promising. The grass, that many feared
would be short from the long dry spell,
has started out in rapid growth since the
recent welcome rains and now bids fair
for a good crop. The corn also has taken
a start that gives hope of an abuudaot
yield. The oats look very well and' a
more than ordinary breadth has been
sown. If no disaster befals as the crops
of the county as a whole wilt be good.
