The Harrisburg State Guard is im
pertinent enough to ask the question,
why is it that so many weekly papers
in this State treat. the local news
of the county with indifference ? Now,
it is evident that follow who asked
tho question hasn't had the distin
guished honor of being a "local" on a
country paper. If he had been one,
he would have been the last to ask
such a question. It is true, everybody
likes to road the local news, and we
wouldn't give much for the man, or
woman either, who didn't. To a fam
ily away from their native county, the
news about their old homestead as re
corded in the town paper, is of cheer
ing character, something akin to a
letter from a friend. "Locals" gener
ally on country newspapers, know
this; but we would like to ask what
are they going to do when "local news
are as scarce as hon-tooth;" or as "rare
as Juno bugs in January ?" We would
like very much to aecomodate the city
dailies with items; but unless we, like
they, in many instances, resort to
manufactured news, we cannot get any
thing of a truly local nature, until some
event transpires worthy of note. Local
editors ought to be assisted in their
labors, because they can't be every
where gathering items and if anybody
has anything of a local character to
toll a friend far away he can't do bet
tor than communicate it through the
papers. Not until then will the pa
pers be full of "locals," and wo suggest
to our friends in the county to come
to the help .of the local editors and
make their paper interesting in that
We aro glad to notice our exchanges
giving the . public a few common sense
rules Qn etiquette in public. We es
pecially commend the following to our
readers, many of whom practice ono
or all of the foolish customs noted,
thinking that they aro right, simply
because somebody else does so :
Only villagers, or persons with rural ideas,
any longer contend that ladies should always
be given the inside of the pavement in pass
ing. The rule adopted in all cities is to turn
to the right, whether the right leads to the
wall or to the gutter, and an observance of
this common sense rule would obviate much
unpldasant "scrouging" by over-gallant gen
tlemen who persistently crowd for the out
side.,of the walk. Another common custom,
not required even by fashionable etiquette,
and one which is nearly as inexplainably ab
surd, is the practice of a whole string of men
filing out of a church pow, making them
selves as ridiculous as an 'awkward squad'
practicing at 'catch step,' in order to give.a
woman the wrong end of the pew. Another
is that of a man when at promenade or walk
with a lady, to keep himself on the outside
of the pavement. A little exorcise of judg
ment will convince any person of the utter
I uselessness of this bobbing back and forth at
every corner. The common rule is this : "If
men and women are walking together, she
should always be at his right arm, whether
it be toward the inside or outside of the walk:
then the woman will not ho shoved against
the passers." Those who giggle at persons
who follow this rule are themselves the
"greenies," and should read the "book of
manners" before they indulge in the laugh of
Good Templar Convention.
The Good Templars of the West
Juniata District assembled in quarter
ly Corivention, at Bloody Run, on
Tuesday of last week and remained
in session until Thursday. There was
a largo cumber of delegates iq atten
dance, and somo important business

ings, to make the acquaintance of

was inclement, the good people of

""Do You One.
The following little anecdote tufty
come in good play at the present time;
A gentleman travelling through ono
of the rural precincts of a certain
county, rode up to a farm house and
thus accosted a tow-headed urchin who
was seated on a. top gate-post : "Bub,
where's your pa ?" The youngster
replied : "Papa's just gone there boy
ant the cow shed to dig a grave to
bury our old dog Towner. The darned
old fool killed hisself a barkin' at can
didates for shorn. Be you, ono ?" Our
friend rode on.
A young man named John Hawn,
who resided about two miles from this
place, in Juniata township, committed
suicide on Wednesday last, by taring
strychnine. He came to town on
Monday to get a tooth extracted, and
while hero he bought the poison. On
Wednesday afternoon ho took the
strychnine (some say by mistake) and
immediately its violent effects were
visible in the intensity of his suffer
ings, and death ended his misery durr
Discovery of a IkVonderfnl Caveo
A now and wonderful cave has been
discovered in Armagh township, Mif
flin county. A correspondent of the
Lewistown Gazelle, from Milroy, gives
the following description of it :
On the 24th of April, while Charles
Nageny, of Milroy, was having a site
dug for a limekiln, ho was surprised
by finding an opening in tho lido of
the hill. The moment it came to view
a strong stream of air began oozing
forth, like the pressing of a pair of
bellows ; the work was continued un
til the aperture opened in size largo
enough to allow the body to crawl in,
and then it was found to be a splendid
cave, with gorgeous subterranean
gangways; during the week the work
progressed, and a formal entrance was
made. On Saturday, 2d of May, the
citizens of Milroy and vicinity had the
pleasure of a full view. The atten
dance was composed of about ono hun
dred and fifty ladies and gentlemen.—
Lights being at hand, having boon fur
nished by Mr. Nageny, it made the
affair quite interesting: After first
entering, wo found ourselves enclosed
in a narrow underground path, for the
distance of twelve foot; hero the great
cave came to view : the gangway
about fifteen feet wide, with gigantic
walls of rock, was a direct line of
about sixty feet, in the centre of which
wo behold the hanging or projecting
rocks, in the shape of a mantel, under
neath which, were small, crystalized
rocks, long and hollow, appearing like
icicles on a house in winter time.—
Here we turned to the right, and had
a full sight of the "Platform Rock," a
natural platform, about three feet
above the level of the floor, and run
ning together in the center; above it
was a shelf or canopy, which indeed
presented a sublime sight. Here, one
hundred and seventy feet under the
ground, and in natural formed rooms
or gangways, with a splendid spring
of fresh water beneath your feet, who
could not realize that the hands of na
ture had truly boon at work here. A
short distance farther on, wo beheld
the hanging lamp, and then came the
subterranean chamber, situated below,
whore the rocks seemed to be more
marbleized, as they are firmer, whiter
and more solidly settled.
After returning, we, with the assis•
tanco of a ladder, provided by Mr. Na
gony, were enabled to take a look up
stairs. Here was another chamber,
with colossal walls of rocks, which pro
sented a sight never to be forgotten ;
the distance traversed .was about 600
feet. The air within is very warm,
and the floor or ground seems as if ce
mented, and is firm and solid. The
diagram is in the shape of an H. writ
ten, and very neatly laid out. Tho
base of the springs aro like small peb
hies laid aside of each other, with a
border composed of a larger size.
Tho cave is situate on the line of the
Mifflin and Centre County Railroad,
about three-fourths of a mile below
Milroy, and is a grand and sublime
sight—a relic of nature's handiwork
that Mifflin county may some day be
proud of. It will be open for visitors,
during the coming week, when all who
may wish to improve themselves in
tho study of nature's works, may have
an opportunity to visit it.
