LOVE, 3LATRIIIONY AND SAD DISAP
POINTMENT.—GirIs do some queer thingsl The
fact is we have never -understood the (Veer
little posses They go through so many 'sim
pering little flirtations, win a feilow's heart,
and then as if by a wave of a fan, topple all
our air castles to the ground with a crash that
shakes the very soul in us. This was our ex
perience once. It was very cruel. It tested
our living qualities. But faith and a gocid ,
constitution overcame all, and "we still live."
We heard, a few days ago, a sad tale of thi s
kind which stirred up those old recollections
and made us wonder why man's affections
are thus made the toy of women.
In the quiet solitudes of Bedford county,
where lofty hills rear their heads in majesty,
crowned with the most beautiful shrubbery,
and little rivulets go leaping from rock to
rock, forming lovely cascades, and birds sing
and chirp from bough to bough, and many
other equally interesting and purely romantic.
objects salute the lover of romance, a young
swain, whom we shall call Dick, loved, most
ardently, one of the daughters of the valley, of
which she was the Lilly.
Dick was young and full of life, and he with
palpitating bosom, doted on fair Lilly and
vowed that "naught in this sad world" should
ever them sunder, until death the old go-to
sunderer should them part. Fair Lilly smiled
on him and smiled again and—eat his candies
and chestnuts and vowed that she was "his'n."
Many big apples and little pea-nuts did he
bring unto her. Many were the promises and
kisses which they indulged in. Many solitary
walks and quiet tete-a tetes dicl the enjoy on the
banks of the "Blue Juniata," feasting their eyes
upon the sluggish mud-turtles that lay
in the sun—and upon themselves. Oh butsuch
things are sweet when we are young,' and we
have heard old ones being eqnally as foolish.
But dopbly sweet and sentimental . were these
things to 1,311 y and Dick. They appeared to
be swimming in a ses of soda water, or attar
of roses, or--mush and milk! It was happi
ness any way let the coMparison be what it
may. The day, the happy day was fired! The
minister, he with the white cravat and black
cloth fitting close up about his person, had
been named. Time was rolling heavily. How
weary time is under such circumstances. But
Dick and Lilly had determined to till time.
They visited friends and spent days amid the
scenes of their childhood. One gloomy even
ing they returned to their homes, Dick to
look after his stock and Lilly to see her ma.
Both dwelling upon the theme, no doubt, upper
most in their minds. It wcs a dark and dis
mal evening and Dick felt lonely separated
from his charmer. ,
Lilly had scarcely concluded the task of
telling her ma how nicely they were getting
on and in return receiving those delicate little
instructions which mothers are in duty bound
to give their marriagable daughters, such as
not to kiss their husbands after supper nor be
fore breakfast and never to keep a pretty
chambermaid, etc., when a rap, rap, rap, was
heard at the door. The mother had only time
to caution her daughter, when John, the son
of a well-to-do neighbor was ushered in.
Now, to tell the truth, John and Dick were
"spoons on" l.illy. Here was a go I Lilly
had been playing with both the boys. John
had just heard "some dings" and be "shmelt
mice spout as loud as any pody." And he
was determined that things should come to a
cry-sis which they did. But Lilly didn't cry
long. She said she had made up her mind to get
married and that she would just as soon have
John as Dick—and they were married before
Dick had his stock cleverly fed. Was there
any wonder that it was a dismal evening and
that Dick had the dumps ?
Well, to cut a long story short, Dick heard
the dreadful intelligence without going into
histerics, as women do, but went oif and pur
chased a pistol, wrote a challenge, sent it,
sod scared John so badly that the marriage
feasts were postponed far several weeks.
Finding that he could get no satisfaction out
of John he became raving mad and threaten
ed self destruction for several days, when he
sobered up and came to the sensible conclu
sion that the prize was not worth fighting or
killing one's self for, and—subsided. Oh
ladies ; fair ladies, why do you thus trifle
with young men ? If you don't want to marry
them don't eat their big applei airl their little
pea-nuts and make them all manner of prem
ises and then fool them—its wicked.
A HEAVY SELL.—At one of our hotels,
a few evenings since, a gentleman, from Balti
more, proposed, to several young gentlemen
spending the evening at the house, to drink a
bottle or two of wine. The wine was procured,
and with other refreshments, was taken pretty
freely. Among the number present were John
ny, Dave and Will, who enjoyed the entertain.'
ment hugely. Johnny fused to drink and
laughed immoderately at what lie supposed to
be demonstrations of excessiveness on the part
of Dave. This rather amused Dave and Willi
who conspired to sell Johnny. They retired
for a moment, and concluded that Will should
inform Johnny that Dave was outside very
much intoxicated, and that he must be stowed
away somewhere. Will proceeded with Johnny
to the front of the building, where Dave was
lying across the-entrance, where Johnny sup
posed lie had fallen. He was satisfied in a
moment that the situation was a critical one,
and he inquired hastily what should be done.
"Done !" exclaimed Will, "why we must carry
him up stairs!" And Johnny laid bold with a
will. Dave weighs about one hundred and fifty
pounds, the big end of which it is no light
matter to carry up two flights of stairs ; but
Johnny pulled, puffed and sweated, while Will
scarcely carried his boots. Dave was as limber
as a rag, and didn't help himself a particle:—
Will suggested, when Johnny hesitated a mo
ment on the landing, that the ladies were
coming, and in be went with a vim that would
have thrown the most muscular man into the
shade. Dave was conveyed to a place of aafety
in the attic, and Johnny only learned, some
time afterwards, when he discovered Dave
slipping out of the house, that lie had been
Rolm. He takes no stock' in drunken men
A Pool:. SQUIRT.—We d,sil t moon some
poor devil about the town who ain't anybody,
and because he ain't, is abused by all his
neighbors. No ; we allude to a Fire En
gine, so called, that we saw on exhibition, in
the diamond of the town, the other day. It
was a most treacherous, leaky, creaky, affair.
The boys had hauled it. out to sprinkle the
streets, and in one sense,it.was a perfect sac :
cess. It laid the dust•most cfNetually where
ever it was stopped up for a moment. We
have seen the same thing done much better
by a perforated hogshead. The streams that
poured out were not quite esstrong. We were
told that the boys lahoted two hours to get
water enough ahead to run it across the
street. Some fellow, with more energy than
discretion ascended the machine and the last
we saw was about ten g,alions of water going
up his pants-legs and coming-outin the region
of his paper collar. We remember seeing a
boy on one occasion go head and front into a
mud hole. He rose undignifiedly, extending
both arms, with his fingers slightly curved
and exclaimed, "fooh !" The engine Inge pre
sented a similar figure. The sprinkling, we
presume, was not after the most orthodox
plan, But is this the kind of a machine that
Huntingdon has to depend upon in case of a
fire? Think of it! One good human squirt,
with a dinner bucket, would be worth two of
this machine! Boys, dump it into the river
for three months, and if it don't hold water
then, perhaps, some other arra.ngetafftts,
be made. If not, the people will call for Vet
ter squirts in a double sense!

Young Men Drowned.—On Saturday afternoon
fast; our citizens were shocked and startled by
the intelligence that Fairinan C. Flenner, son
of John Flenner, Esq., ' of i- this - place,. aged
about eighteen years, was drowned in the
dam at.the .mouth of th,c4.o.otown Branch,
about 21 miles below town.
The deceased was on apprentice in the

three other boys, started on a fishing excur

JaPpetirs:igat Aile there the
boys had stripped for a bath, the water being
very deep at that place and young Flenner
being no swimmer, he had not gone into the

the dam when his feet slipped ..ftetl,he fell
over, and almoSt immediately liiappea'red be

not only furnishes to his companions a timely
warning in regard to the recklessness often
manifested by boys in needlessly endanger

solemn admonition of the uncertainty of life.
Young Flenner left us in the bloom of life,
and in the vigor of health, but` alas, how sud
den and unexpected the change! In one brief
hour the hopes of a lifetime were crushed ; the
sub of his young life had gone down beneath
the dark eclipse of death, and a once happy
household was darkened by the shaduwy,wing
of the destroying angel.

whose ways are "mysterious and past finding

stricken and bereaved pareutislitt this hour of

with the Maryland and
This new link in the chain of railways now
being built in Southern Pennsylvania, will
be au important one, as' it *lll-afford short

tonnage of the Bedford & Leidgeport and the
Brod Top roads cannot be doubted. Besides,
Bedford being in the center of three important
coal fields, it will give our people, and all
manufacturing establishments that may here

A PREACIIEK TAKES TO THE WATER.—
A minister, who lives in the southern portion
of the county, left Huntingdon, where he had
been attending the Union Sabbath School
Convention, for home. ,As he drove out of
town and 'approached Stone Creek bridge, he
concluded to drive into the creek and water
his horse. He drove in and turned and then
permitted his animal to drink. Some of the
harness interfered with the horse's comfort
and he concluded to venture out on the shafts
and arrange the matter. He is not. stripling
by any means, In fact he weighs about 200
or 220 pounds. The harness was not intended
to meet such contingencies and gave way,
which caused the horse to spring forward.
He determined before the horse could get out
of his reach tie spring upon its back, and he
did make a lofty leap, but when he reached
the spot where the horse's back should have
been it had departed and "ker-chug I" went
the minister into the creek up to his neck,
soiling his neckerchief. He has no serious ob
jection to immersion and consequently he took
to the water pretty well. By the time he got
the water rubbed out of his eyes and blown
out of his nose, his lady companion had pulled
up his faithful animal a few rods from the
bank. His new silk hat suffered some in the
adventure. When discovered it was about
two thirds full of water floating down stream.
The moral of all this, is : when you weigh
so much don't test the strength of harness in
a deep stream of water lest you get a ducking
by th e experiment.

Mr. Orbison is a young man, of fine attain

his profession. He graduated with ability at
the Albany Law School, N. Y., after reading
some two years in the office of his father, Wm.

very creditable examination. See card else

Gr'eat Fortunes.—We have long thought that
a volume of short but authentic and well-writ
ten sketches of the most eminent self-made
men of America—telling not only of their suc
cess, but also in what way and by what efforts
this success was attained—could not fail to
possess an absorbing and universal interest,
and must prove an exceedingly popular and
successful book. Such a volume now lies on
our table from the press of Geo. Maclean,
(Publisher of First-Clais Subscription Books,
Philadelphia, New York and Boston), under
the title 9f "Great Fortunes, and How They
Were Made ; or, The Struggles and Triumphs
of Our Self-Made Men. By James D. McCabe,
Jr." D. is a really elegant octavo of 633 pages,
illustrated with thirty-two remarkably well
executed wood engravings from original de
signs by the talented young artists G. F. k E.
"Great Fortunes" is a book that appeals to
all classes, describing the careers not only of
our merchant princes and heavy capitalists,
but also of leading inventors, publishers, edi
tors, lawyers, artists, preachers, auLhors, ac
tors, physicians, etc. It abounds in history,
anecdote, sketches of life in various parts of
the country, reminiscence of distinguished and
eccentric men, accounts of curious and cele
brated inventions, and naratives of intense and
determined struggles crowned by the most
brilliant triunsphs, tt ocunmends itself, like
wise, as a work possessing a great practical
value, as a means of instruction and self-hclp
to all its readers. Row great Fortunes were
made, and how fame was won, largely make up
our author's interesting narratives.
It shows how poor boys, without friends or
influence, have risen to the front mt.:. of
American capitalists ; how a fortune of forty
millions was won by a poor schoolmaster; how
thirty millions sprang from one thousand dol
lars saved by a determined young boatman ;
how a newspaper whirls was first published in
a cellar has become the wealthiest journal in
the land; how a cabinet maker's apprentice
made the world his debtor, and built up an

TO RAILROAD TRAVELERS.-The )1"
towing "rules of the road" are based upon
legal decisions, and ought to be universally
known. The courts have decided that appli
cants for tickets on railroads can be ejected if
they do not offer the exact amount of their fare .
Conductors are not bound to make change.
All railroad tickets are good until used, con
ditions "good for this dap only" or otherwise
admitting time of genuineness, are of no ac
count. Passengers who lose their tickets can
be ejected from the cars unless they purchase
a second one. Passengers are bound to ob-.,
serve decorum in the cars, and are obliged to
comply with all reasonable demands to show
their tickets. Standing on the platform, or
otherwise violating the rules of the company,
renders a person liable to be put from the
train. No person has a right to monopolize
more seats than he has paid for; and any ar
ticle left in the seat while the owner is tem
porarily absent entitles him to his seat on his
