EDITOR PRESS:—I noticed in last is sue of the PRESS an article in relation to the violation of certain laws, by our local bicycle riders, yet there are other laws of far more importance so fla grantly and wantonly violated by our saloons and hotels, especially on the Holy Sabbath day, a day we are taught to respect and revere, that it drives the bicycle business into oblivion. Yet, some of the people will goto church and sit in the front pew. Oh ! Lord, have mercy upon such hypo cracy! We are called nearly every Sunday to witness acts of disgust by bright promising young men—men who might fill a high position—drift ing towards the brink of ruin and the drunkard's grave. Why? because the saloon keeper wantonly, and in defi ance of church, law and morality, vio late the license law. What must be the feelings of a wife, mother, sister or brother, to witness the stagger and drunken leer of a brother or husband and know that certain of our hotel lords are respon sible ? Citizens of Cameron county, is it possible that this thing is to always goon ? Are we never to have re dress ? Is this arrogant rule of whis key and ruin to forever dominate our town and ruin the bright prospects of our homes ? Oh ! God forbid that such should be the case. Every loyal, law-abiding citizen should rise in their might and fearlessly, without a halt, stamp out this accursed viper. Oh ! that we could raise up in our midst another Neal Dow or a Father Mat thews to carry on this war in behalf of humanity, in behalf of the widow and orphan, the mother and wile. Then would our homes be bright and happy and prosperous. JUSTICE. Emporium, Pa., June 6th, 1898. The Creamery's Advantages. BY P. B. C. To-day I had some surplus butter and sent it over to my grocer. He said that he could not take much at any price, but would take a few pounds a week at twenty-two cents. He had a contract with a creamery to supply him with butter, as the people demanded creamery. In times gone by the same store was always glad to get dairy butter, and would pay just as much as for creamery butter, provided it was good. The butter I took over was good, as was evidenced by the price offered, as strictly fancy creamery prints self in Baltimore for twenty-two to twenty-three cents, but his customers wanted creamery but ter no matter whether any other but ter was just as good or not. It is true that I lost a cent or two by reason of the creamery,but think what a hundred or more farmers who sup ply that creamery with cream have gained. The highest price for dairy butter quoted is nineteen cents, while the lowest is twelve, and it is safe to infer that the farmers would have got the whole range of prices for their but ter had they made it themselves in stead of taking it to the creamery. It is true that something had to be paid for making it, but it costs something on the farm, and the extra freight paid if the butter was shipped in 100 lots instead of one would nearly if not quite pay what the creamery charged for making it. Instead of having one hundred different grades of butter made by the one hundred farmers, there was only one grade, and for that the customers ought to be grateful, too, so I bore my loss of two cents a pound with a fair degree of equani mity. Austin vs Emporium. The second nines of Austin and S Emporium contested for honors on the J home grounds last Saturday afternoon, j which resulted in the youthful cham | pions of the "Saw-Dust City" being | defeated by a score of 26-0. Our boys i did not allow them to make a run after i tbe second inning. Father Follows Mother. j Mr. Wm. Hunter, a highly respected citizen of (ilen Hazel, died at his home ; at that place last Saturday, of typhoid j fever, aged thirty- eight years. He was | brought to Truman on Monday after noon and laid to rest by the side of his wife, who died of the same dread malady just two weeks ago. The deceased was a brother-in-law of Wm. Filling, who died at Truman about i three weehs ago, and leaves three little ! children, two of whom are dangerously ! ill with typhoid fever. Prepare for a glorious Fourth. "Liberty and Union, One and Inseparable."—WEßSTEß. EMPORIUM, PA., THURSDAY, JUNE 9,1898. OREGON SUNK THE TERROR! Thousand Pound Shell Sent the Spanish Destroyer Down. ALL ON BOARD WERE LOST! No Trace of Vessel or flen a Moment After the Disaster--Failed to Catch The Yankees Napping and Was Blown to Atoms—Cervera's Last Hope Vanished—End is Near. Philadelphia Inquirer. KINGSTON, Jamaica, June B. Even more picturesque and bold than the defiance of the big Con federate Merrimac by Erricsson's little monitor was the exploit which resulted in the sinking of the Spanish torpedo boat destroyer. Audacious as was the little craft that made Ericsson famous, the small Terror was much more so in boldly attempting to run the guantlet of the powerful American fleet assembled about the entrance to Santiago harbor. Unlike the monitor the Terror failed to catch the enemy napping, and the Am erican fleet demolished the little stranger as quickly as Ericsson's "cheese box"' disposed or her more formidable looking enemy at Hampton Roads. Not a sign of the Spanish boat or the sixty men comprising her crew has been seen since the 13- inch shell fired by the battleship Oregon struck her amidship. This shot made an American victory of an exciting hour's work, and thwarted the first attempt of the Spanish to send naval re-enforce ments to Admiral Cervera. It i.s unlikely that either of the torpedo boats with Admiral Cer vera's warships in Santiago harbor renewed the attempt to attack the American lleet by night, even if these small craft were able to pass the wreck of the Merrimac. The moon was high, a fact which would have deterred Cerverafrom risking the loss of either of his torpedo boats. KNI) IX SIGHT. The belief is growing among the oflicers of the fleet that the war will end soon. With the fall of Santiago and the capture or des truction of Ce vent's fleet they ex pect Spain will sue for peace. "There will not be much more slaughter in this war," is the way one of the oflicers put the matter to me. "It is practically settled now. If Gervera's object was to find the strength of the American lleet his curiosity must have been satisfied." Death of a Former Resident. Mrs. J. L. Beers, of Emporia, Fla., and who formerly resided here, died at a hospital in Philadelphia on Thurs day evening, June 2, from the effects of an operation performed there. The deceased was mother of Messrs. Frank and John Beers and will be re membered by many older residents of Emporium, as Kate Zacharias. At tliis writing no particulars of the funeral could be learned. Rich Valley Notes. Editor I*rcßs : Mrs. Maud Nickerson nee Culver, of Potter county is visiting her father P. | S.

Last Monday, County Commissioner E. W. (iaskill received a telegram from Judd Hines, his brother-in-law, informing him that his wife ( nee Clara Goodwin) had been fatally burned. Later a telegram was received an nouncing her death and that the re mains would arrive here on Wednes day, for burial in Newton Cemetery, beside those of her departed father and mother. A very great number of the younger population of Emporium who were intimately Jtssociated with the deceased, will learn of her sad death with regrets. The grief-stricken husband accom panied the remains to this place yes terday—services being held at the grave. The account of the sad death we copy from the Elmira Star : Mrs. J. Hines, of 310 South <lain street, died at 10:30 this forenor . from burns received at half past six /'clock. With her husband, Mr. Juds< .1 Hines, she lived on second floor of Jie frame house at the above number. Mr. Hines is a carpenter with Mr. W. W. Hatha way, the contractor. He had gone to his shop and Mrs. Hains, it is pre sumed, was doing up her morning work in the kitchen. Exactly how it happened is not known, although Mrs. Harriet Kerns, who with her eon and daughter, live on the ground floor, gives an explanation told by Mrs. Hines herself She stated that she was striking a match and that it broke off, the broken end falling into a can of kerosene oil, which exploded and cast ita contents over her body. She was instantly in flames, which she tried to subdue with her hands, but failing she ran through the sitting room and into the front room, where she placed her self under the bed clothes and where she was found. Some of the neighbors are of the opinion that Mrs. Hines was pouring oil on an nearly extinguished fire and that thus the casualty occurred; but Mrs. Kerns is sure that the above is what Mrs. I lines told her. Screams aroused the neighbors, who saw flames issuing from the kitchen window in the rear, and a fire alarm wits turned in, which brought a de partment detail to the scene, who quickly extinguished the flames. Be fore the firemen arrived the neighbors had found Mrs. Hines after a search, and attracted by her groans. The bed clothing, mattress, pillows and wood work of the bed were charred and ruined. The poor woman had proba bly been burned to her death before she leached the bed. With her clothing in charred tatters, Mrs Hines was carried down stairs and Dr. Williamson and Dr. Copeland summoned, who speedily responded. From the head to the soles of her feet was one unbroken blister, including her face, which was blackened and dis figured. The poor woman, though she must have been in agony, tried to tell how it happened, and as well as she could assisted the doctors in the tedi ous task of applying the necessary coverings and lotions to her body. Atropine and morphina kindly assisted the cutaneous paralysis in obscuring the pain. After the burns had been dressed, Rev. Mr. Thomas, rector of Emmanuel Mission, called, and asked permission to recite the prayers of his creed, and this being given by Mr. Hines, and Mrs. Hines consenting by a movement of her lips, the man of God knelt by the side of the grief stricken husband and all in the room joined in the Lord's prayer, Mrs. Mines herself audibly repeating i "amen." The doctors stated that the chances j of recovery were very slight, in fact | not at all, where the burns were so j general the history of cases being unan | imously fatal in their results. At I half past ten the attendants saw Mrs. i llines begin to breathe loudly and S with difficulty. She partially raised her ; shoulders and head, struggled, grasped i and was dead. Mr. and Mrs. Ilines are highly i spoken of by their neighbors, and Mr. Hathaway was present showing his | sympathy and regard by assisting in ! whatsoever manner possible. Mrs. 1 Hines was about forty-three years old, with no children. Undertaker Zimmerman took charge of the body, which will be taken to Emporium, Pa., for interment. The shocking affair cast a gloom over the neighborhood, and well it might, for it k !IV<; "new very striking emphasis Ito that which says:"ln the midst of I life we are in death." Mr. and Mrs. j Ilines were married in 1880. They I have lived lived in Elmira three years. MANILA HAS FALLEN!
