Law Heoardinq School Children, The
lawful age for sending children to the public
schools is that of six years, and any ono can
continue in the schools until twenty-one. The
law has been changed of lata years, when the
age of five years was the earliest admittance to
the schools. The reason for making a definite
period for the commencement of an education
is the argument that the young mind should
not bo taxed with literary matters, but should
rather he cultivated in a strong, healthy brain
and the confining of a child at such an early
ago is not only hurtful to its constitution and
health, but is predisposed to make children
delicate. Another reason is that the pubh
schools are not intended as nurseries for chil
drcu not able to take care of themselves. Tho
Stato laws forbid tho sending of children to
school under six years of age.
We havo noticed in a number of papers that
the people of this county who knew anythln

In their verdict that his death was warranted

and does our county great injustice. The mur
der of Van Llew struck every one with horror,
and immediate steps were taken to ascertain
au ,ie fiCta l tbecase, and bring the perpetra.
lors to light. If the people of the immediate
community where the crime was committed did
not act at onco as an experienced detective
would have done, It was through ignorance, and
not from any lack of desire to discover the mur
derer. The District Attorney has been authorized
by the court to appoint a detective to work u
the case, and it Is probable that before Ion

THE INCENDIARY TORCH.
TWO DWELLINGS BURNED ON WEST
A TftltEAT OAnlltliD OUT,
'If you tell on Harman 1 wilt burn you out
now mind that."
The above notice, as stated In the Colum
bian of the 7th inst., was found on the door of
W. H. Ulngrose's house on the morning of the
4th, a day or two before the trial of Harman
Kramer for setting firo to the Exchange Ho
tel began. In the absence of any proof connec
ting this notice with anyone Interested In that
trial It was not evidence against Kramer, and
might havo been done by an enemy desiring to
prejudice his case, as well as by a friend desir-
ig lo Intimidate KIngrose, an Important wit-
tics against him. Wherever tho notice came
from, no one had any Idea that it would be car
ried Into eflect, except Mr. KIngrose, whose
family have lived In constant fear slnco that
Last Wednesday morning a little after one
'clock tills community was startled by an
!arm of fire, and it was soon discovered that
Mingroso's house on West Street was In flames,
The building was beyond help when first seen.
nd soon the devouring element leaped to the
Lulhcran Parsonage occupied by Ilev, Dr. Mc-
Cron and both dwellings wero burned to the
ground. They were frame buildings, and the
material in them was as dry as tinder, bo that
all efforts to save them were futile. There were
but a few feet between them. Ringrose had an
nsurance of $1000 on h's house, and 5000 on
the furniture. He lost considerable of his
household goods, and escaped himself with
the clothes on his back.
The Parsonage had an Insurance of $S00,and
Dr. McCron had $900 on his furniture. He
saved nothing from the second story.
THE Fine BEGAN
on Ilingrose's hack porch, and those who were
first on the spot say it must have been set from
the outside. It was undoubtedly the work of
an incendiary, as there was no fire in any of
the stoves, and no lamp left burning.
THE TIRE DEPARTMENT
was promptly on hand with their apparatus,but
owing to the want of water, and the rapidity
with which the buildings burned, they could do
nothing but protect the neighbors.
Policemen Pursel and Shutt state that they
passed through West Street on their heat not
more than a half hour before the alarm was
given. They saw no one on the street, and the
fact of the fire starling so soon after they had
passed makes it look as though they were watch
ed, and the match applied as soon as they were
out of hca ring.
THE INDIGNATION OF THE I'EOl'LE
at this outrage is great, and it is probable that I
hands could have been laid during the fire with
any degree of certainty on the fiend who did the
act, his cries for mercy would not have saved
him from a horrible death. There is no evi
dence to show that the person who put up the
notice on ilingrose's door is the man who ap
plied the torch, and, as we said before, there is
nothing as vet to show who put up the notice,
One thing is certain however, that there is an
unhung wretch at liberty in this community, and
every citizen should interest himself in ferret.
ing out tho matter. This fire was set by some
one with a motive, or by one so depraved that
he places no value on property and human life,
In either case this community cannot afford to
rest until the criminal is brought to justice.

There Is a want of sociability In Bloomsburg
We have not as much social Intercourse and
enjoyment as any of the smaller neighboring,
towns. It Is now well on towards a year since
there has been any kind of a gathering. So
ciety with both young and old seems to be eith
er dead, or taking a Rip Van Winkle sleep. It
Is not for want of pleasant people that our so,
clal life lags; there are plenty of them. The
trouble is that everybody stays at home and
seeks only self enjoyment. Exchange of call
Is a thing seldom Indulged In, and parties are
now a thing unknown. As the winter approach

dolence and selfishness, and prepare for a pleas

agreeable society In the state than Bloomsburg
can boast of, but It is necessary to stir it up
with a sharp stick In order to bring It to the
surface so that It can be teen with the unaaslst

DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY,
THE MURPHY GOSPEL TEM
A UOOII WOltK lllCINd HUM! IN III.UIMIrt-
The Murphy Gospel Temperance Movement,
which for Rome time has been expected, began
In our midst on last Thursday evening in tho
Methodist church. For somo timo our minis
ters, Including tho Methodist, Presbyterian, Lu
theran and Baptist, have been devising plans
by which to eflect something In this cause. To
this end they held several meetings (solely
ministerial) and with a unity of purposo most
commendable, and a christian zeal highly
raise-worthy, determined that some public ef
fort should be mado to arrest the evils of in
temperance and save, if possible, tho erring
through strong drink. To this end they secur
ed the services of tho Secretary of tho Murphy
Gospel Meetings of Philadelphia, Mr. John L.
.niton, and through him those of Mr. Powell,
co-lahorer in the samo work, also of the samo
city, lo prepare Iho way for these gentlemen,
preliminary meetings were held in the Metho
dist, Lutheran and Baptist churches on Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday evenings, in the or
der mentioned. Thcso meetings, considering
tho general apathy felt to exist in tho temper
anco question, were unusually well attended,
and very interesting. On Saturday Messrs.
Linton and Powell made their appearance,
The firat publio service under their charge was
held on Sunday afternoon. It was an Open
Air Meeting, and was held in the Court House
yard. The attendance was large, including the
best citizens of tho place, together with many
moderate and confirmed drinkers. The speech
es were short, practical, kind, and very affect
ing, taking hold at onco of tho affections and
producing deep feeling. They came, these
gentlemen said, "not to nbuso any-body, not
the rum-seller, or tho drunkard, hut to do
good, to save the erring, to raise up the fallen,
and to do this wholly and solely by lovo."
After the speeches, interspersed with enliven
ng and soul-stimng singing, the books con
taining the Pledge were opened and tho people
earnestly and lovingly invited to come forward
and sign the Pledge. In a short time 158 sig
natures wero appended, ministers, lawyers,
doctors, merchants and laboring men, with
scores of women, all coming boldly forward
and pledging themselves to hereafter "abstain
from all intoxicating drinks as a beverage."
At night two immenso Union Mass Meetings
wero held in the Methodist and Lutheran
churches, tho Baptists by arrangement attend
ing tho former, and the Presbyterians tho lat
ter, which were addressed by Messrs. Linton
and Powell. The churches were crowded, and
the people seemed by ono common impulse to
be ready and willing to enter into the work,
Signatures were during these meetings added
to the list of tho afternoon, swelling it to 300,
It was a grand work for a single day, and it is
hoped that all who Bigncd the Pledge will he
able, by graco given, to faithfully keep it in
the future. This they cannot do of their own
strength, but by divine power sought and tho
aid of the christian men of tho community may
and can. They need help 'and feel this need,
None can properly understand how much they
need it, who have never fallen into the meshes
of the destroyer, rum. Let tho churches then,
purging themselves from all contaminations
with this accursed foe to their peace, power
and purity, rally to the aid and encouragement
of these weak men who have signified their
desire to reform. Give them your hands and a
kind word and a christian recognition and they
will stand, and become honorable citizens and
useful members of society. But turn the cold
shoulder to them, and stand waiting and ex,
pecting them to fall, and this temperance work
so gloriously begun will most signally and dis
gracefully fail, and palsied be the hand that
would reach out the bottle and tempt these re
pentant ones to taste, stumble and fall. Jour-
Tho meeting at the Methodist church on
Tuesday evening was unusually successful, the
houso being jammed full, and scores of signa
tures wero obtained. It was an affecting sight
to sec fathers and mothers, sons and daughters,
press forward in a body to record their names
On Wednesday evening the Lutheran church
was crowded to excess in fact large numbers
were unable to gain admittance. A number of
addresses were made, and a large number of
names were enrolled. The total number en
rolled up to the close of tho meeting on Wed
nesday was 640, and the work still goes on

TI1I5 JAIL QUESTION.
On Saturday last Mr. Brockway "presented to
the Court the petition of the tax-payers, a cop
of which was published (n last week's issue.
The petitioners represented the almost entire
county, and was 184 feet Umt; As to the seven
years audit, the Court stated that that would re
quire special legislation as In the case of Lu
zcrne. After the auditors had made their Re
port any citizen could appeal from It In tli
time specified by law, but if that was not done
It would stand approved. We understand that
the Commissioners will allow an examination
of their accouuts if the partia teUctcd vert mt
objectionable, hut as the committee would not
have the power to administer an oath, such an
examination would prove farclal. As to the
petition In the hands of II. E. Smith Esq., It
was not presented because the bond required
had not yet been signed. The amount required
has not yet been ascertalned,but If not too large,
the petition will be presented at the adjourned
Court next week. In the meantime tho com
mlttee, as well as the ptople, are keeping

The County loan for tha new prison could
not be affected at four percent. We will now
