It was rumored a few diys ago that one of
of Mr William Itulme's familv was sick with
small pox. Mr. Hiilmo owns a fino farm near
Denton, nnd his homo stands near the main
road. A red flag was displayed one tnornin
and tins was thought to Inufcalo tho presence
of the disease. It turns out, however, that tho
sanguinary emblem was flung to tho breize, not
to announce small pox, but to notify the stage
drivor that a package awaited transportation to
ISIoomsburc. Of course thero was no disease
in iho house. It does feeni as if the average
citizen loses his head whenever small pox is
mentioned, and "4raightw.iy forgotteth what
manner of man ho was," ns regards common
Thero bus bun too much disorder in lllooms-
burir of l ite, nrd the fair fame of ihe town has
sull'ered in consequence. No serious breaches
of llie peaco have occurred, but there has been
boisterous and unseemly bihavior, au l that
loud and profane talk which springs from over
indulgence in intoxicating liquors. I his H all
wrope-. and should be slopped at once. Our
town has a reputation for good older second
to none in the State, and it must be maintained
at all hazirds. Noisy and quarrelsome revel
lers should be diiven from the streets, nil pro
fane and vulgar language checked, and scullling
or any indecorous actions promptly slopped,
Such things would not be permitted in any of
the larger towns or cities, nud is no reason why
they should be tolerated here. The good name
of the town is worth money to every property
owner within limits.

Itospectfully Yours Ac,
a I'Ioniu with variations,
Accidents, discomforts and annoyances of
divers sorts seem to bo Inseparable from that va
rlely of otil-ibor entertainment known as n
picnic, Showers fall, lunches arospolled,wsgon
break down, and mishaps of more or less mo
ment bofall the pleastiro seekers. Thoso mis
chances, as a rule, pertain to picnics In day
'ight and are varied to some extent when the
lima it changed. Onn afternoon last week, ft
party of young pcoplo loft Illoomsburg toonjoy
themselves in a grove not nany miles from
Orangeville, Intending to putakeof suppornnd
then return In the glory of n full orbed moon,
The plan was'onginnl and would have been de
lightful had It lint beou for tho "uncx-
pnclfil," which wo nro told "always happens."
Tho rnrty did not arrive nt tho place of
lielr destination until the sun hail set,
nnd the twilight faded into night with such nun-

mcrian, had not Iho gentlemen kindled huge
bonfires to dispel the gloom. Tho moon did
not shine forth resplendent, on the contrary
cho retired behind murky batiks of clouds and
.,... i.i , , ,. m. . ,
illumined the scene not u whit. Tho dnrkness
increased nud n few rain drops paltered upon
Ihu lenves. This was tho signal for n hasty de
parture and the big wagon was soon on its way
lo Orangeville, A halt was made at tho hotel
in that town, and for an hour nnd a half there
was patient waiting for tho storm lhat camo not.
This was not highly enlivening nnd at last pa
tience ceased to be n virtue, and iho revellers
started for home. Not a great distanco Imd
been traversed when a lurching of the wagon,
foIlowel by n full stop to progress evidenced a
crisis. Matches were lighUd, and it was ascer-1
tained lhat one of the hind wheels was hanging I
over a vawninr- rbasm. and lhat a friendlv lren
nlono prevented tho tumble of tho vehicle nut'
its occupants down a miniature precipice. This
danger pas'ol, another effort lo reach home was
made, but once more the wheels loft the high
way and sought rcfjgd in a ditch. A houso
stood near by and to tho occupant an nppeal
was mado for a lantern, Tho Illuminator was
procured, and the gentlemen of tho parly look
turns in carrying this bead light in frontof tlio
cquipago until they reached Illoomsburg, at the
cheery hour of four o'clock in the morning
weary, foot-sore and forlorn. Persons pto-
postng picnics hereafter this season, will not bo
like'y togniti many recruits from Iho rnnksof
this lantern brigade To them the beauties ol
moonlight picnics are but ns phnnteimsof ti dis
ordered imagination, as unsubstantial as the
biseless fabric of a vision,"
fier an objuration of three weeks or so, the
dally ,Sn shone feebly on Friday hut and then
sank out of sight once more. There were a
couplo of incoherent, irrelevant nud badly
written communications iu the issue, ono of
which reflected strongly on tho political vuga-
ricsofC. B. Brcckway In 1SGS and 1872, at
which times he was connected with thu Colum
bian. As we had nothing whatever to do with
the paper in tho years mentioned, we havo
nothing to say concerning tho strictures upon
Mr. Brockway's course.
