shown. Once bIio said to ber mamma.
mamma, won't it be nice when wo all get
where there is no pain ?" Tho remark hav-
ing been made "I hope, Maggie, you will
soon bo out again," alio replied, "no,
will not get well," and after a moment ad
ded, ''it will be a long limo if I do," and
then in answer to the Inquiry "do you love
Jesus ?" she clasped her hands together ns
if in prnyer, and said, with a smile, "yes.
I do, and he loves me." A day or so before
she died, she repeated a part of the twenty,
third Psalm, "Yea, though I walk through
tho valley of the shadow of death I will
fear no evil." Sweetly and calmly she
passed away. Heaven has received no
sweeter or purer spirit than hcr's.

n appeal was made to the public by the
Bloomsburg Band, through the medium of
circulars, on election dny. As it shows
the present condition ot the finances of tho
band wc reprint the circular below as fal
The Bloomsburg Band takes this method
of calling the attention of tho citizens nnd
tax payers of Bloomsburg to tho statement
glveu below as being tha sum necessary to
pay-annual expenses of the Band. A part
of this amount has been paid from year to
year by proceeds of public entertainments
given by the Band, the balance being con
tributed from the private purses of the
members individually. Various ways have
been adopted to raise funds to pay current
expenses by voluntary coutrlbutions, Jtc,
but failed to fulfill the purpose, for the rea
son that only n very small portion of tho
amount subscribed being paid into the
treasury of tho band. We now propose to
ask assistance from the citizens in the way
of an appropriation from the Town Treas
ury, and In return for such appropriation
the Bloomsburg Band arc willing to enter
Into an agreement with the town authori
ties to furnish the citizens music free of
charge for all public demonstrations in tho
Town of B oomsburg, (political meetings,
&c, excepted.) To ascertain if a majority
of tho citizens favor the plan It h proposed
to put it to u popular vote at the annual
town election, Feb. 17th, 1835. Tho state
ment showing the amount necessary to pay
annual expenses of the Band, aro viz i
For Leader, $150.00
" Hall Kent, C5.00
" Light and Fuel, 15 00
" Music and Incidental Expenses, 25.00
This does not include the wear and tear
of instruments and uniforms If tho citi
zens will appropriate $100.00 of this
amount In quarterly payments the Band
will raise and pay the balance, and furnish
music free, as stated above. The amount
asked for would average about 10 cents for
each voter. Unless some such arrange
ments can bo mado with thu citizens wo
cannot guarantee that thu organization can
bo maintained another season. Tho majo.
rity of the membcr are too poor to
give the amount usually contributed by
them. Hoping you will give this matter
duo consideration, nnd vote for an appro
priation, we remain, Respectfully,
The proposition to get nn appropriation
from the town treasury failed, ns only
100 votes were cast for tho appropriation.
This failure, however, Is no loss to tho
Band, as tho council would have no au.
thorlty to mako an appropriation, oven
though a majority of tho people voted for
it. But tho action of tho bund shows that
In a town the size of Bloomsburg, such an
organization cannot bo maintained without
outside assistance There are very few
occasions during the year when tho band
receives pay for Its services, and the
amount thus earned Is not sufficient to pay
current expenses. If the Bloomsburg Cor
net Band is to bo maintained It Is evident
that tome assistance, by subscription or
otherwise must be rendered by the citi
zens. David Winner offers himself at crier at

Experiments made on the New York,

demonstrated the possibility of maintain

done Is that of a wlro electrically charged,
which affects another wire similarly charg

plan is to lay a wire between thu trucks
and the moving train to curry another wlro
below the car axles and within a foot or
less of tho ground wire, Whether the new

It will require un operator on eacli train In
