WATER WouKs.—These columns have
contained very little in regard to the all-im
portant subject of a competent supply of water
for the town of Huntingdon. There appeared
to be a wholesome agitation outside of the
press that indicated that the subject was fully
ripe and that the proper authorities would take
the necessary steps to accomplish the rnmh
desired and greatly needed end. But there is a
time in all projects of this kind when a good
and well directed word May give a fresh im
petus to its friends, and cause those who have
done and said nothing heretofore, to lend a
well supplied and vigorous hand. This is the
object of this article.
Everybody admits the necessity for Water
Works. But does everybody in the town and
vicinity comprehend the absolute haste which
is necessary ? Because, if they do not, we as
sure them that haste is necessary. How much
time will it require to erect Water Works, and
put them in a condition to be of service in the
case of emergency? Not less than nine months
or a year. This is a long time, and it is ex
ceedingly doubtful, whether eighteen or twen
ty months will not be necessary to put them
in a condition that they could be of service in
case of a large fire. Now, when we take into
consideration the remarkable fact that very
destructive fires have been experienced on the
line of the railroad, both east and west of
Huntingdon, and that Huntingdon has escaped
while the one-third of Mifflin has been destroy
ed and Lewistown and Altoona very severely af
flicted, it behooves us to make haste. The
very next tap of the bell may sound the alarm
of fire, and a single hour may destroy more
property than would pay for competent Water
Works two or three times over. The only rea
son that we can give for the escape of Hun
tingdou, up to this time, is the fact that Hun
tingdon is growing very rapidly, and there is
abundant employment for all her mechanics
and artisans. There is no better evidence that
a town has ceased to grow than when it has
frequent fires. While the great body of me
chanics and artisans are strictly honest, and
they will, no doubt, consider this a severe re
flection upon them, yet if they will remember
that one evil disposed person in a thousand.
and this is a very small proportion, can destroy
enough to keep all of them employed for
months and years they will see the force of the
logic. if you want to keep men out of mischief
you must keep them employed. Huntingdon
has gathered up a large population of working
men and can you keep them employed? The
moment these men are thrown out of employ
ment some wretched one may find means to
make employment for the whole number. We
throw out these hints because such is the ex
perience of the world. Let Huntingdon put
herself in proper raiment.
Just here another important question arises,
whore is tho water to come from ? One says,
"Well, from Stone-creek I" another says, "It
can be taken from the river," and a third,
from some one of the springs within three, four
or five miles of the town. The first question
to be disposed of, is, what kind of water do
you want, hard or soft ? Soft of course. A
very serious objection to Huntingdon, at pres
ent, is, it is supplied with hard water from the
numerous wells. A great many people abso
lutely refuse to live in a town where soft water
cannot be had. Good house-wives know, only
too well, the value of soft water, and if soft
water can be had it shoujd be procured even
if it cost one-half more. In fact the question
of cost should not fie taken into consideration
if it con be had at all. Now, then, you are
the best judges as to where it can be had or
whether it can be had or not. We plead our
ignorance. but as a faithful guardian of the
best interests of the community, we desire to
set you to thinking and we hope you will not
consume too much time in thinking either, but
that you will commence acting without delay.
We hope that you will have no difficulty in
determining to secure soft water, and at a
place high enough to run it into the fourth or
fifth story of a house without having to force
it into a reservoir. The high bluffs and moun
tains in the neighborhood of Huntingdon cer
tainly ought to have some springs, if husban
ded in artificial reservoirs, which would afford
a sufficient supply and of the kind of water
desired. Those acquainted with the topogra
phy of the country ought to be able to give
the desired information.
As to the cost, we are unable to give any
thing but a mere guess, but we cannot see
how they would cost over $50,000 or $75,000.
And suppose they cost $lOO,OOO, bonds could
be issued payable in ten, fifteeen and twenty
years that would be met without scarcely an
effort. Go to work and place the town in a
condition to enable the people to successfully
resist the fire fiend when he comes, and every
day's delay only brings us nearer to the day
when we have to meet him.
HUNTINGDON AS A POINT FOR THE
MANIFACTIIRS OF IRON.-Mr. Editor :—Among
the iron men of Pennsylvania it is now con
ceded that the manufacture of iron with An
thracite coal, must be abandoned. The limi
ted area of the Anthracite coal field ; the con
stantly increasing demand for domestic pur
poses ; the frequent stoppage of supply, in
consequence of strikes among the miners ; the
constant fluctuation in price, often amounting
to a dollar a ton, and lastly the fact that Bi
tuminous coal is better suited for the manu
facture of iron, than Anthracite, have caused
the thinking men engaged in this business care
fully to consider the question, where can iron
be most profitably manufactured in Pennsyl
vania with Bituminous coal ?
We answer most unhesitatingly, that Hun
tingdon has advantages orer any other point in
the State, for the following reasons
1. We have an unlimited supply of iron ore,
of the best quality, accessible by railroad and
canal. It passes through our town daily to
Johnstown and Danville, and if it pays to car
ry it such distances, it would pay to manufac
ture it here. The fossil ore, from the eastern
slope of Tussey's Mountain can be brought by
the Broad Top Railroad to Huntingdon fora
sum not exceeding $2.90 per ton, and Hems
atite ore for mixing can be brought from the
same locality or from the southern end of the
county, for the same price.
2. Huntingdon has the choice of the best
Bituminous coal, at minimum rates. The
Broad Top, Clearfield and Allegheny coals can
all be delivered here at an average rate of $l.lO
per ton. The almost entire freedom from sul
phur, which characterizes some of these coals,
renders them invaluable for making good iron,
whilst the Coke they yield has no superior.
3. There is an abundance of Liniestone of
first quality, within three miles, immediately
on Railroad and Canal. _ _
4. Huntingdon lies in the heart of the re
gion, which produces the best iron for wire,
imitation Russian iron, boiler plate and with
out taking time to speak of her advantages
such as the healthy location, the abundance of
water, the cheapness of building materials,
the quality of our clay for brick:
I wish to call the attention of capitalists to
the fact that some of the wealthy iron and
Anthracite coal men have lately made large
purchases of coal and mineral lands in this
county, and one of our best informed iron
manufacturers says that within a few years
Huntingdon county will be the great iron pro
ducing region of the State.
We are pleased to learn that one of our for
mer townsmen, Robert Hare Powell, Esq., now
of Philadelphia, contemplates the erection of
a furnace and rolling mill here or in this vi
cinity. With that far-sightedness which has
always characterized ate business operations,
he was a pioneer in developing the Broad Top
coal field, and after working it so successfully
as to become the largest shipper of Bitumin
ous coal in the State, he directed his attention
to the iron ores of the county, and has secured a
tract some twelve miles in extent, probably the
most valuable mineral deposit in Pennsylvania.
He is now preparing to make iron and it is
the universal desire of his former townsmen
that he should erect the works at this place.
We may again ask room in your valuable
paper for some further remarks on this ques
tion so important to the citizens of our town
PEARL DROP.—This is an excellent
article for beantifyink the complexion, as will
be attested by those who have tried it. Man.
ufactured and for sale by Mrs. L. A. Hamer.
Druggists and Milliners supplied.
THE LOCAL EDITOR.—What at un
fortunate fellow the local editor is, to be sure,
and how much is expected of him. If a man
buys a new horse or buggy, or if hiNtow can
bawl, three times without winking, "local"
is expected to proclaim the fact with a great
flourish. Hite starts a two penny business,
his first thought is to bribe the "locil" with a
five cent segar to write up a five dollar puff.
Indeed, he thinks it is the mission of the "lo
cal" to make his fortune for him by "free
blowing." He will take the "local" to one
side and point out the superior qualities of a
rat-terrier dog, and coolly ask him to "give
the pup a hoist." He don't care anything about
it, only Spriggins has a dog that lie thinks is
a buster, and some of 'em wanted his ' put in"
just to take the conceit out of Spriggins. Oh,
yes, "put it in" by all means. Everybody
wants us to "put it in" that they are the
"GREAT I Au," but nobody says: "Here local,
put yourself inside this new suit of clothes,
or throw yourself outside of this oyster stew,
or stuff this watch in your pocket." Oh, no,
of course not ; that would cost something.
The shoe is on the other foot, you see. The
"local" is supposed to know everything about
other people's business, and is expected to
"show.up" all the actors in every family broil
in town. If the vile tongue of scandal finds a
victim, people wonder that he don't run about
with his note book and gather up the vituper
ative bits of slander for the paper. If he steps
into the billiard saloon he is requested to
make a note of the astonishing fact that Bill
Thompkins has just made a "run of 11 points."
When the minstrel troupe arrives in town, the
agent immediately rushes for the printing of
fice and calling for the "local" he slips three
or four tickets into his hand and whispers—
" Draw us a big house!" "Put it in strong!"
and patting him patronizingly on the shoulder
the agent admits the inferiority of the troupe,
but we are not to "let on." It is no sin for
tke "local" to lie. Toplease the lecturer, the
"local" is forced to sit two mortal hours to
bear him through an insipid discourse so that
he can "write him up." And so it goes. All
are anxious to appear favorably in print, but
few are willing to pay for it. The "local's"
time is worth nothing. He has nothing to do
but to bother his brains in writing puffs for
ambitious parsons. It don't cost him any
thing to live. He never eats, or drinks, or
travels, and money is of no use to him. "Put
it in 1" "Put it in I"—Gazette and Democrat.
A MODEL CONDUCTOR.—"DoIph"
Faro is the man! "Dolph"—every body
calls him "Dolph"—has been running on the
Broad Top Railroad for fourteen years. On
the 29th of March, 1857, he entered into the
employ of the Broad Top Company and from
that date until the present, with the exception
of three months, some years ago, he has daily
vibrated between Huntingdon and the south
ern terminus of the Broad Top Railroad.
Of that time some eight or ten years have
been spent as Conductor. No wonder every
body speaks to him and familiarly calls him
"Dolph." His good natured face ought to be
known by every man, woman and baby along
the route, and some of the cattle ought
even to know him and thank him for
their existence. "Dolph" is knd and accom
modating to every body and he minds his own
business. Every body consequently respects
him and loves him. There is no "fuss and
feathers" about him. He goes about his vo
cation without any flourish of trumpets. We
have ridden with him any number of times
and we have never heard "Dolph" have an al
tercation with a passenger or any body else in
our experience which is a customary
thing on some other railroads. In fact it is
expected, but with such conductors as "Dolph"
there is no necessity for any thing of the kind.
And one of the most interesting features of
this notice, is, that in the fourteen years that
he has run on Broad Top he has never seen or
had a passenger hurt on the train on which he
is employed. Broad Top is sometimes sneered
at and called a shaky road, and people who
travel it are expected to say their prayers be
fore crossing each and every trestle, and have
their lives insured to boot, but we are very
much in doubt whether there is another road
in the United States that can give a similar
experience. "Dolph," Broad Top should
make thee a present of a handsome little villa,
on some of those elevated points along the
line, where in thy old age, thou canst look
down upon the road which, in thy better years,
thou didst serve sd well, and from whence thou
canst pass from this earthily tabernacle to that
House not made with hands, eternal in the
BLACK VALLEY BRANCH R. 11.—Black
Valley is a small valley apparently starting
at the Raystown Branch of the Juniata river,
about a mile above Bloody Run, lying between
Tussey's Mountain on the West and Clear
Ridge on the East, and extending to the Po
tomac river in Maryland a distance of twenty-
Eve miles. It appears to be a continuation of
Woodcock Valley somewhat contracted. In
this little valley large deposits of iron ore have
been found similar to those found in Wood
cock Valley. James Morley, Esq., the Mining
Engineer of the Cambria Iron Company, we
are told, pronounces them of the best quality
and to be almost inexhaustible in quantity.
Heavy purchases have been made here by
Messrs. Lowry, Eichelberger & Co., The Cam
bria Iron Company and some eastern and
other parties. We are positively assured
that a branch railroad, leaving the Bedford
and Bridgeport Railroad at the south end
of the bridge across the river, a few rods above
Mt. Dallas, then hugging the base of Tussey's
Mountain to the mouth of the valley, will be
built to enable those parties to get oat their
ores. This branch will be of great impor
Lance to the people of Bloody Run. Let the
good work go bravely forward.
LOCAL LEGISLATION.—The following
bill, handed us by a friend, has been offered
in the Senate, and we lay it before our readers
that they may see what disposition is trying
to be made of the county fouls:
"AN ACT to authorize the commissioners of
Huntingdon county to pay to the supervi
sors of Shirly and Tell townships one thous

DISTRESSING ACCIDENT—A Aran Falls
6 Di6(611. of Forty Feet through a Hatchway.—
A young man named John Dossier, aged 17 years,
an employe. at the Huntingdon Furnace Mill,
in Morris township, met with an accident, on
Monday of last week, which resulted in his
death a few hours afterwards. He was engag
ed in hoisting grain to the upper story of the
building, and while in the act of drawing a
bag from the opening in the floor, he feel and
was precipitated to the basement, a distance
of over forty feet. His skull was fractured,
and after lingering a few hours death relieved
him of his suffering. He was a sober, indus
trious young man, and his shocking death is
deeply mourned by those who knew him.

ANOTHER VICTORY FOR THE WHEELER
WILSON SEWING MICHINE.
HUNTINGDON, Pa., Feb. 15, '7l.
This is to certify that we, the undersigned,
were invited to act as J7DGES at a cosTesr be
tween the Howe Sewing Machine, operated by
Miss A. Atkinson, traveling Agent for the
Howe, from Wilmington, Delaware, and the
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machine, operated
by J. James Davis, of Huntingdon, Pa., all par
ties were favored with the kindness extended
by D. R. P. Neely and lady, to the use of their
parlor for the TEST, after watching both par
ties closely for nearly three hours, and close
ly examining all the work, we must say that
the work done by the Wheeler A Wilson was
better, neater, closer, and the speed far sur
passed, that of the Howe. The Wheeler &
Wilson is renowned for its simplicity, Dura
bility and light running.

INSURED.—WiII. C. Curry, a prominent
citizen of Erie, Pa., killed by the late accident
on the Hudson River railroad, held a yearly
accident policy of $lO,OOO in the Traveler's
Insurance Co., of Hartford Connecticut, on
which the bremiuin paid was only fifty dollars.
The Traveler's lose by the same accident,
$lO,OOO on W. H. Forbush, of Buffalo, N.Y.
This sterling old company has over $1,606,-
000 of cash assets. It has aluays paid its just
claims promptly, and its name is now a
synonym of financial strewth wherever it has
transacted business. The insuring public
should be fully convinced that it is worth
something to hold an accident policy in a
strong company, able and cheerfully willing
to pay all just demands. The expense of a
yearly policy is but trifling. J. Hall Musser
is agent for Huntingdon and vicinity.

town clock or water works and Bedford has. Oh
yes, you can put up your clever noses and

EDITOR HUNTINGDON JOURNAL :—Dear Sir : I
see an article in to day's Honitor concerning a
contest between the "Howe" and "Wheeler &
Wilso , " Sewing Machines. It is a base, one
sided fabrication ; a perversion of facts. Some
facts will be given next week which will show
that the Howe Machine outstrips the Wheeler
& Wilson as far as the eagle outstrips the bat
in lofty flight.
As well might the little stream boast that it
was higher than its source, as the Wheeler &
Wilson assert that it was better than the Howe,
the source of Sewing Machines.
JAMES A. BROWN
RUNAWAY.—A horse, driven by Mr.
Geo. [`oft, of this place, ran away on Wednes
day night near Spruce Creek, dumping out the
occupants of the sleigh, Messrs. Port and KIM,
without doing them any bodily injury. The acci
dent happened where the pike crosses the rail
road track, and the horse started at full speed
down the railroad and was caught in the tun
nel by the watchman. The horse was consid
erably injured about the head, supposed to
have been done by coming in contact with the
rough surface of the arch of the tunnel.
ANOTHER .RELIC DEPARTING.—On
Monday last the workmen commenced the op
eration of tearing down the time-honored
building, formerly known as the "Snare pro
perty," in the "Diamond," now owned by H.
G. Fisher, Esq., who intendsito erect a first
class brick dwelling on the site. Thus one by
one the venerable relics of the days of our
fathers, in the shape of old log buildings, are
passing away to make room for the advance

by energy, capital and labor.
