an Iron City Coroner does Business—Sharp
Practice.—The facts in the case of Mrs. Clark,
of Six Mile Fein, Bedford county, who corn
mitted suicide at the Union Depot Hotel, Pitts
burgh, on Sunday evening, the 30th of July
ult., are pretty well known to our town read
ers, but our numerous readers in the coal re-
gions, who depend upon us for the local
news, are not so well informed, we, therefore,
publish all the facts, in connection with a
statement of Mr. Clark, to a correspondent of
ours, which we expected to publish last week,
but which we did not receive in time. The
report which we copy is from the Pittsburgh
Dispatch and is corroborated by the reports
published in all the other Pittsburgh papers.
The Dispatch says :
The deceased arrived on Friday evening
from the East, and informed the clerk then on
duty that she desired lodgings for the night
only. She was furnished with a room. During
the morning of Saturday she left the hotel, but
returned again about two o'clock in the after
noon and told a clerk to register her name
again, that she would remain over night. She
then deposited some money in the hotel safe
and was shown to her room. Yesterday morn
ing the chambermaid tried to get into Mrs.
Clark's room, but
The girl went away and returned again about
two o'clock, but finding the door locked she
determined not to call again until after dinner.
In the evening, about half past seven o'clock
the girl again found the door locked when she
visited the office and asked if the occupant of
room "seventy six" was in or out. The key
was not in the office, whereupon Mr. Borland,
an attache of the hotel was dispatched to see
if there was anything wrong. He accompanied
the chambermaid to the room and placing a
step ladder against the door he looked through'
the transom and found Mrs. Clark suspended
by the neck from a post of the bed. The un
fortunate woman was cut down by a physician
who was summoned immediately, but all ef
forts to restore her to life proved unavailing,
although the vital spark had not yet fled when
she was first discovered.
Following is the testimony elicited at the
inquest held on the body last night.
Robert B. Borland, sworn—Am a runner for
the Union Depot Hotel ; this evening (Sunday)
at about half-past seven o'clock the chamber
maid came to the office of the hotel and re
ported that she could not get the door of room
"seventy-six" opened; I looked over the tran
som; saw the deceased between the bed and
the wall, where she appeared to be standing;
the chambermaid was with me when I made
the discovery; don't know when she came
here ; have seen her face before.
John Nichols, sworn—Am Clerk at this ho
tel; the deceased arrived here night before
last (Friday); saw her for the first time on
Saturday afternoon ; after breakfast on Sat
urday she paid her bill ; never seen her before
Friday ; she left a package in the office which
she said contained three hundred dollars; the
check for the same we have not got yet ; know
nothing more of the deceased. It is reported
that Miss Christy, who occupies room seventy
eight heard noise in room seventy-six about
four o'clock this morning.
Anderson Murdock, sworn—Am clerk at the
Union Depot Hotel ; the deceased arrived on
-Friday night on the mail or fast line from the
East ; she took lodging only; it was between
one and two o'clock in the night when she ar
rived; on Saturday morning sly paid her bill
and went out ; about two o'clock in the after
noon she returned, and said to register her
name again ; she said her name was Mrs. Clark,
that she was from Huntingdon, and would
stay until Monday; this was the last I saw of
her; she did not complain of feeling sick;
there was nothing sent to her room while I
was on duty.
Annie Herron, sworn—Am chambermaid On
this floor, (the third); came to the room about
half-past eight this (Sunday) morning; could
not get in, and did not come back again until
about twelve; the door was still locked, and
I concluded not to come back again until after
dinner ; visited the door of the room about
half past seven, and finding it still locked, I
went to the officer and told Mr. Nichols ; he
said that he thought the occupant of the room
was still there.
Mr. Borland then said that he would go up
to the room and try and open the door ; we
came up together and knocked three times,
but received no answer; Mr. Borland then got
the steps and we looked over the transom and
saw deceased between the bed and the wall.
Dr. Umbstaetter, sworn—Am a practicing
physician ; attended this inquest at the request
of the Coroner; when I arrived here I found
the deceased suspended by the neck from the
post of a bedstead; her hands were clasped
together; her knees did not touch the floor;
as soon as 1 arrived I cut her down with a knife
there was a gurgling noise in her throat,which
convinced me that
obtained medicine and all the restoratives gen
erally used in such cases; placed her on the
floor and endeavored to restore respiration ;
she looked better for a few seconds, but then
sank away ; was of opinion from the first that
she would die; cannot tell how long she was
hanging to the bed post.
This concluded the testimony, and the jury
returned a verdict of death by suicide.
The deceased appears to have been a woman
of about thirty-five or eight years of age ; she
has dark brown hair and eyes. When found
she was dressed in a spotted berege dress, and
wore a neat lace collar, fastened with a gold
breastpin. On a stand, near her bedside were
found a lady's gold watch and chain, a brooch
and some other trinkets, together with a pair
of scissors,
and about sixty cents in currency and nickels.
Two pawn tickets, numbered respectively 23,-
396, and 23,401, were found in a little purse
. .
in her pocket.' The first ticket showel that
she had borrowed thirty dollars, and the sec
ond was for three hundred and eighty-five dol
lars. Both tickets were issued by Emanuel
De Roy, 153 Smithfield street.
After the inquest had been concluded, the
hotel check for the money package was found
in one of dq,ceased's stockings which had not
been removed.
The fatal noose was composed of about three
yards of strong, black linen binding, about
half an inch wide. The deceased was evident
ly moat determined to die, from the fact that
in order to tighten
she was compelled to lift her legs, from the
knees down, from the floor in order to accom
plish her purpose, the distance of the knees of
deceased, when she was found, not being more
than six inches from the floor.
The body, as it lay in its muddy sheet on
the bed, presented a mast ghastly appearance.
The lower jaw was encircled by a red mark,
showing where the fatal rope had done its
work. The eyes were 'sunken in their sockets,
and the palad expression of the face, as the
Coroner's jury gazed upon it in the dim glim
mer of the single gas light that illumined the
room, was imprc33ire in the extreme.
Knowing that Clark was in the employ of
Capt. E. H. Turner, at Duval Colliery, Six
Mile Run, Bedford county, we addressed a
note to him to ascertain the facts. He waited
until Mr. Clark returned from Pittsburgh and
then sent us the annexed statement. Capt.
Turner is intimately acquainted with the par
ties, he having been instrumental, to some ex
tent, in bringing them from Scotland. There
is still some mystery in regard to bow Mrs.
Clark becar•e the possessor of so much jewel
ry, but Mr. Clark says it was given to her by a
relativ. in Canada. Capt. Turner says:
Both Mr. and Mrs. Clark are natives of Scot
land, and were brought to this country at an
early age by an uncle. Nothing is known of
them until some three years since, when they
lived in a Western city. lam not at liberty
to speak of any thing from that time until
some two years since, when they were married
in New York and started on a visit to England,
Ireland and Scotland, in which latter country
they opened a sort of public house, which they
kept for some time, but finally sold out and
came back to this country, a little over two
months since. On landing, they came to Du
val Colliery, where they have resided ever
since, he being employed as a coal miner. It
appears that Mrs. Clark has for some time befit
subject to attacks of mental depression, the
chief feature of which was the idea that she
was pursued by an old woman and two men.
During her residence here it became known
that she possessed many valuables, among
which was an India shawl, worth $5OO, sever
al diamond rings, diamond breastpin, ear
rings, gold watch and chain, bracelets, shawl
pins, set with precious stones, and a variety of
valuable jewelry.
A short time since bhe determined to build
a house, and in order to raise the money, con
cluded to pawn a portion of her jewelry. Ac
cordingly she selected some $2500 worth. re:-
marking that she “could easily raise $lOOO on
them," and on Thursday, July 270, started for
Pittsburgh, her husband accompanying her to
Riddlesburg, where she was to take the cars,
but arriving too late for the train they return-
ed home. The following morning she again
started, alone. Before leaving home, however,
she reqmsted her husband to bid her goodbye,
as she would never return, and seemed much
, depressed. Mr. Clark, thinking it would soon
. pass away, gave her - an affectionate farewell,
and went to the mine. On returning home in
the evening he found a letter she had left for
him, stating that she would never return, but
• that he would hear from her on the following
, Tuesday. On :Saturday, however, be received
a telegram from her, dated at Pittsburg,.desi
ring him to telegraph or write to her. Two
days after this (Monday evening) he received
. a telegram announcing her death.
• I should stop here, but there seems to be an
after-piece to this tragedy which I give you as
I received it from the parties.
The morning after the telegram of her death,
her husband, Mr. Clark, accompanied by Mr.
Watson, (also a miner and lately arrived in
this country,) started for Pittsburgh, which
they reached on Tuesday night, and the next
day had his wife buried. After the funeral on
Wednesday he called upon the Coroner to re
ceive the property of his wife, he being sole
survivor, as there were no children.
That official first charged hies $2O, and then
drew up a receipt for the articles, which Mr.
Clark signed; the Coroner then banded him
the jewelry and pawn tickets, but still retain
ed the diamond ring which he was wearing,
and seemed loth to partwith. Ile then offered
to buy the pawn tickets if he would give him
the ring, but Clark steadily refusing, he finally
drew off the ring and gave it to him. They
were then invited by the Coroner to take a
glas:, of ale, and were conducted to a drinking
saloon, it being now dark, and while there he
requested Mr. Clark to let him look at the ring
again. On handing it to him the Coroner, by
an adroit movement, knocked it from his hand
and it rolled over the floor. A hunt for it by
the Coroner and his companions then ensued.
The gas was turned off, but Clark's companion
detected the glitter of the stones in a corner
and immediately seized it. Again was Clark
importuned by the Coroner for the ring and
tickets, and finally consented to let him have
them if he would give as much as they were
worth. The next morning (Thursday) ,they
again visited the Coroner's office to get Mrs.
Clark's clothes, but the Coroner was absent,
said to be holding an inquest, and they did
not see him until the next morning, (Friday,)
when they saw him and received Mrs. Clark's
clothes, but wete requested to wait, as the
Coroner's wife would soon be there, and want
ed to purchase some of the clothes. While
waiting Clarke was again importuned for the
ring and the tickets. Finally the Coroner re
marked, "I think I have offered you too much
for the tickets," and commenced to pencil
some items, then turning to Clark said, "let
me see how much the tickets call for." They
were accordingly handed to him ' • he then said,
"I think one of the stones in the ring is not
very good, let me see it." Clark replied, "I
think you have seen it enough as you have
worn it three days," but again handed it to
him, whereupon the Coroner cooly put the
ring and pawn tickets in his pocket I Aston
ished at this Clark asked him what he meant;
and requested him to give him the things and
let him go home. The Coroner's answer was,
"I'll be G—d d—d if I give them to you; I
have seen Judge —, and you must take out
letters of administration before you get them,
and that will cost you $20." Clark became
much excited, but was taken by the Coroner
to the law office of B— dz Me—, on Grant
street, where, after aprivate interview between
the lawyers and Cordite: they were told they
must take out the letters and give $4OOO se
curity, but if Clark would sign an article ma
king them his attorneys, that they would set
tle the matter ! Clark, distracted at the death
of his wife, in a strange place, where was he
to find $4OOO bail ? He told them so, and
begged them to give him his property and let
him go home. At this time Watson's suspi
cions became aroused and he got Clark out of
the office on the street, where they met Mr.
K—, who told them that they were sur
rounded by a set of sharpers, and advised them ,
to apply to some respectable lawyer which
they did, and the case is now in the hands of
lawyer McK—.
_ _
This is the stdtement made by Clark, and
confirmed in every particular by Mr. Watson,
a man whose testimony is unimpeachable..
One thing is certain, Clark reached home
this morning minus tickets, diamonds and ev
erything except the watch and chain and a
few small trinkets, and small as the lot is, with
a still smaller opinion of the honesty of the
COroner of the Iron City.
Surely Allegheny county must be very un
fortunate in the selection of its officers. But
a short time since two of her Commissioners
were sent to the Suite prison for high crimes
in office, and here is another officer who, if
the above statement be correct, richly merits
the same residence. E. H. TURNER.
, The Pittsburgh Dispatch, of the 7th inst.,
contains the following singtilar facts, which
we believe were trumped up by the Coroner
to cover up his footsteps in endeavoring to
withhold Mr. Clark's property :
The mystery of the suicide at the Union De
pot Hotel, which occured one week ago last
evening, becomes a greater mystery every day.
The question, who was Mrs. Clark, and why
did she hang herself, have now given place to
others that at present seem still less likely of
solution, to wit : who is Mr. Clark, and by
what right does any individual bearing that
name claim the jewelry and other effects found
upon the person of the deceased at the in
quest? In Saturday's issue it was stated that
a man representing himself as the husband of
the unfortunate woman, and• stating that he
had emigrated with her from Scotland, and
lived with her at Fairplay, HUntingdon coun
ty, desired to obtain her property from the
Coroner, and, the latter refusing to deliver it
up, threatened to enter proceedings in Court
by which he would be compelled to yield it.
But proceedings were not entered on Satur
day, and now it is stated that Mr. Clark No. I
has gone home, the jewelry, &c., still remaining
in the hands of the Coroner, who is explaining
his retention of the property, tells the most
singular portion of the history of this altogeth
er singular case. He asserts that, on Friday,
besides the Scotchman, two other individuals
severally called upon him, each representing
that he was the husband of the deceased and
claimed what effects had been found upon her
body after her deaths. Mr. West further relates
that they described her clothing accurately—
even to the minutia. of her underclothing, and
gave additional evidence intended to show
beyond a doubt that they were the veritable
widowers. They seemed bereaved in a decent
degree, but still the Coroner, as he states,
fancied that they were false pretenders, and
that their sole objects in calling upon him was
to possess themselves of the jewelry which is
said to be valued at about $l.OOO. Accord
ingly he dismissed them and for the reason
that there were ostensibly so many "Mr.
Clarks" he refused to recognize as such any of
the persons representing themselves as the
husband of deceased.
Thus the case stands for the present. Mr.
Clark No. 1 has, we understand returned to
Huntingdon county. If he was the husband
of the deceased he will probably soon return
with proofs to that effect. What has become
of the Messrs. Clark, Nos. 2 and 3, our repor
ter was yesterday %nable to find out. He
visited Mr. West's residence last evening, and
on enquiring for Mr. W., who happened to be
away, was received rather suspiciously. On
stating that he was a newspaper reporter, the
cause of the suspicion, now removed, was ex
plained by a statement to the effect that it
was supposed he was a Mr. Clark, No. 4 a
presumption which he made earnest haste to
politely dispel.
The case is an exceedingly promising one
for interesting developments in the future. If
instee d of throwing one of the "Mr. Clark's"
out of his second story window, the Coroner
had only put him under arrest and taken him
down to the Mayor's office, there might possi
bly have been a better understanding of its
merits by this time. Unless Mrs. Clark had
three husbands instead of one, and that each
of the men who represented himself as her
husband, was or had been such, then a rare
piece of imposture must indeed have been at
EDITOR JOURNAL :—I notice in the Pittsburgh
papers a number of articles on the Clark sui
cide containing statements that Seem to me
very strange ; take one instance :
The Coroner states that .e did not give up
the jewelry, &c., of Mrs. Clark, of Fairplay.—
This is not true. Ile did give up all thejewel
ry, but by a low trick repossessed himself of
the diamond ring and pawn tickets, as I stated
in my former communication, in proof of which
you can now see the watch, chain, breast-pin,
shawl pin and thimble in Mr. Clark's posses
sion. How is this, Mr. Coroner?
I saw to-day a letter to Mr. Clark from law
yer McKenna, of Pittsburgh, who has the case
in hand, stating that the letters of administra
tion were taken out, and that he intended ma
king to-day a formal demand on Coroner West
for the property, and if it was not immediately,
surrendered, that he would expose him.
August 11, 1871. E. H. T.
WRIT UROKEN.—A passenger on the
Dudley train, as he was passing Powelton, on
the Bth inst., thrust his arm out of the car
window and it struck a car standing on a
sideling and broke his wrist. Passengers
should have learned ere this to discontinue
this dangersous practice.
week or two since made some suggestions in
regard to celebrating the opening of the Bed
ford and Bridgeport Railroad which has stir
-red up the ire of the Inquirer terribly. Hear it :
great many ways of doing a thing but the way
the Huntingdon Journal does it beats any
thing out. To hear those fellows talk you
would almost think the earth revolved around
in their office and they greased the machine
and turned the crank. According to their
faith, Huntingdon is the centre of attraction
and the Journal the bead of the centre. What
they don't know is not worth knowing. Phila
delphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh are small
towns compared with Huntingdon and a little
place like Bedford is no-where at all. Occa
sionally these Journal-ists and theirbig town,
go together and "wake up" a little town, just
to keep it from rolling out of existence. One
of these wonderful feats is to be accomplished
about the Ist of September. The following is
the official order :
much has been said in 'regard to running
to Bedford, by the first of August, that the mind
of the public will be disturbed, no doubt, to learn
that there is no prospect of getting through on
ears to that point before the 25th of August, or Ist
of September at farthest, and then we want a
regular old jubilee. We expect our friend
lips to furnish cars enough to take half of Hun
tingdon to that quiet old town, up- the Raystown
Branch, and we will waken her up! We expect
three or four bands, two or three military compa
nies, and great numbers of civiluns to form in pro
cession, with Ben Grrrettson and Sam Barclay,
and one of each of their old coaches at their bead,
moral all over the old place, and bring up at the
Poor House cemetery and there bury Giarettson
and Barclay and their old coruthes in one common
grave, the Bands playing a funeral dirge, and
Hon. John Cessna officiating. Hurry up the cakes,
we arc coming ! Bedford must wake up ! !"—lluia
tingdole J,uroet.
No doubt the mind of the public (in Hun
tingdon) is disturbed at -the announcement
that our railroad will not be in running order
before the "lst of September at farthest" and
it is not at all unlikely that the Huntindon
public mind will be more disturbed if they
learn that the road will not be completed to
Bedford until sometime after the Ist. That
we may not excite any unnecessary alarm in
the public mind of the Journal, we will guar
antee that if they start on the train on the Ist
of September they can have the pleasure of
jubileeing at the Bedford county house to
their hearts content, but we don't want our
friend IPliillips to forward half of Hunting
don here at the same time, as we have no
doubt some of them wouldn't fancy the ac
commodations at the above house and would
go home with an unfavorable report.
But the coolestyiece of impudence though,
is that the Journal should undertake to dic
tate to Bedford how she should celebrate the
event of the arrival of the Iron horse, or rath
er, to cabbage our programme for that occa
sion, which had been revealed to the editor
while here on a visit. When a fellow comes
around at this time of day with a left-handed
suggestion of that kind he musn't try to palm
it off as original. But they
- are going to
"waken us up." They forgot hat they have
already wakened us up by their twenty years
unbroken thundering snoring.
For over twenty one years Huntingdon has
enjoyed railroad and canal facilities and until
within the last three years of that time has
been sound asleep, dead to all her interests.
Bedford county enterprise, and Bedford coun
ty money has made her in most, part, what
she is to-day and what she ought to have been
twenty years ago. In developing our coal and
ore we developed Huntingdon borough and
every one of their business men knows that
the H. & B. T. R. R. trade has made the Hun
tingdon borough trade, and built upThie town
of Huntingdon, against the wishes of the
huge army of their old fogies. They also
know that the building of the B. it B. R. R. is
a great stimulent to their business in all its
We had to send a Bedford county Editor
down there to wake up their old fogy news
papers and some of our mechanics to wake up
West Huntingdon.
Bedford is a "quiet old town," but in point
of advancement, in porportion to its advanta
ges, is twenty years younger than Huntingdon.
We may have taken a nap occasionally, but
it was always on a clear, sweet conscience—

Journal in casting about for a President of
the Cumberland Valley Railroad, says :
In looking over the array of slendid railroad
men constantly present before the people, we
find no man who embodies the same peculiar
qualities in a professional way with like ele
ments of personal popularity, so essential to
take hold of an old enterprise which has been
suffered to retard, and lift it up to a fair com
petition with other great. ventures,
as are pre
sented by Col. Samuel A. Black, Superinten
dent of the Middle Division Pennsylvania
railroad. If we were to consult our personal
feelings, we would hesitate long before we
suggested the removal of Mr. Black from his
present position to place him elsewhere, but
as the best men are now required for:work
like that of reorganizing a railroad, as a
journalist we must point to such wherever
they are fouud. No man in the State has
had more experience as an organizer of the
executive business of railroads than. Mk,
Black. In the west, and particularly in lowa,
he accomplished some of the greatest results
which now distinguish the railroad interest in
that region, while in Pennsylvania be is repu
tubly known as having put many of our lateral
roads in successful operation, after they had
languished for years under ie control of in
competent directors. He had a large cFperi
ence of this order on the Philadelphia and
Erie road, and was particularly successful in
placing the Bald Eagle Valley road, running
from Tyrone to Lock Haven, into profitable
operation, and is now popularly known along:
the routes of these roads as an able, indfatiga
ble untiring official, who yields to no obstacle
when in a pursuit of success. With such 'a
man at the head of the Cumberland Valley
railroad, one year would revolutionize the
trade of the entire Cumberland Valley, mak
ing Marti burg a depot for the transhipment
of its vast resources to all pa of the coun
try. For the welfare of the people along the
route of this rotid, and for the benefit of its
stockholders, we sincerely hope Mr. Black
may be called to its presidency. Of cow-go:by
such a transition, railroad circles in this city
would loose one of its ablest and most popular
members, but then the great railroaa interests
of this nation would be advanced, and to such
results it is the duty of all localities to con

Inox Ons.—A correspondent writing from
Mount Union, under date of July 31st, to the
Harrisburg Journal, says :
A correspondent writing from Mt. Union ;
Huntingdon county, notes the recent discovery
of an ore mine on the farm of Peter Shaver,
about one and a quarter miles from the former
place. Competent mineralogists who have
examined the ore say that it is of a superior
quality and the prospects for an immense
yield could not be more flattering. The ore
is a neutral No. 1 hemmatite.
The ground which is to be worked at pres
ent consists of about seventy acres and up
wards, a large portion of which has the rich
est deposits of ore on its surface. The vein so
far discovered is about eighteen or tweenty
feet in width, and the depth of the vein is not.
yet known. It may be fifty or two hundred
feet deep. There is no certainty as to its
depth. Several shafts have been sunk, and
veins of ore discovered, from which solid
pieces, weighing from fifty to one, two and
three hundred pounds have been taken. The
ore can be conveyed to the Pennsylvania rail
road or the Juniata canal at Mt. Union with
teams at a trifling expense. The discovery
will be exceedingly fortunate for our furnaces,
the town of Mt. Union, and especially for Ma
tilda Furnace. The mine is in the hands of
one who has the determination to develop all
that is in it. A lease of the land has been
secured for &reasonable length of time, and
it is tholgbX that ore in paying quantities is
deposited on tho greater part of it. •

PORTER TowssutP.—Some one writing from
the uper-end, and signing himself "Eye-Wit
ness," makes the very modest claim that the
pic-nic described by him was the grandest S.
S. pie-nic ever known in lluctingdon county.
Now, although it may seem presumptuous in
a slender man like me, to venture to gain-say
this assertion, yet it must, in sectional pride
and in all boldness, here a claim that the
Union Celebration held on the sth inst., in
Porter township, will, in everything that con
stitutes and profitable occasion of this nature,
bear the palm.
A refreshing shower had fallen the night
before, relieving the intense heat of the sea
son, and the morning arose bright and beauti
ful day. The grove, a remnant of the "forest
primeval," a short distance below the Loop
Schcol House is Porter township, had been
selected as the scene of the day's festivities ;
tablet had been put up, seats had been pro
vided, and a stand for the speaker and music,
beautifully decorated with flowers and ever
greens had been ereoted. The Union Sabbath
Schools of the Loop, Hartslog Valley and the
Warrior Ridge participated.
The memb - ersof the latter two with their
friends came in large wagons, with horses
and wagons gaily decorated with flags, ban
ners, evergreens and flowers. When a short
distance from the place of meeting, they
dismounted, formed in procession, and march
ed to the grounds, the Loop school marching
out to meet them, and then falling in in the
rear of the column. The scene presented was
somewhat inspiriting as from the woody slope
above we watched them. The tri-colored flag
of our Union, the old stars and stripes, floated
proudly, yet peacifully in the van, as if recog
nizing the grateful trifth, that no longer was
it born by loyal arms in front of martial legions
marching to the bloody field, but over the
heads of an intellignt, Christian band battling
it is true in the warfare against ignorance and
vice, yet grateful for the blessings of Pence
and intent on prolonging her reign.
After the schools had been seated, Mr. R. A.
Laird read a letter from the Secretary of the
Huntingdon Silver Cornet Band, stating that
on account of the sickness of the leader they
would be unable to fulfil their engagement to
play on the occasion.
Our disappointment was however almost en
tirely alleviated by the fine vocal music furn
ished by a very excellent choir, most of whom
1 we learned were from the Hartslog school.
1 The exercises were opened with Prayer by
Rev. J. Kistler, of Waterstreet, after which
Mr. Laird introduced Miles Zentmyer, Esq.,
who in an address full of the beautiful im
agery of Nature, endeavored to instil the les
son of gratitude and love to God the author
of Natures beauties. Music by the choir fol
lowed, after which Rev. J. W. Plannett, of
Huntingdon, was introduced. He spoke more
particularly of the Sabbath School cause, of
the magnitude and importance of the work,
of the obligations all owe to it, and in an ad
dress brim-full of earnestness, instruction and
interest, strove to arouse a more zealous feel
ing in the great work of the Sabbath School.
Dr. D. C. Wright, of Harrisburg, lecturer
on Temperance, happenning to be present was
introduced, and intere•ted the audience by
giving a very graphic account of the Mission
ary and Sabbath School work in the great
cities, drawn from personal observation and
experience, in a manner at once eloquent and
pathetic. . . .
A recess followed Dr. Wright's address, in
which the schools, spectators and friends of
the schools partook of a magnificent lunch,
consisting of roast fowl, pound cake and other
good things which our lady friends of Porter
know so well how to get up.
After dinner had been duly discussed, and
a short time spent in social enjoyment, we
were again called together to exhaust the
programme of addresses.
Mr. Kistler, Waterstreet, then addressed the
children. He contrasted the condition of the
ittle ones then before him, with those in less
favored portions of the world. Mr. Kistler,
has been a Missionary in Africa, and the
greater part of his address consisted of a very
interesting and graphic account of the ens
toms,•modes of living, cannibalism, &c., of
the natives of Central and Western Africa
among whom he labored. He closed with an
earnest and eloquent appeal in behalf of the
Sabbath School children of the State, and
those who should be in the Sabbath Schools.
After music by the choir, a real live Congress.
men in the form of H. Milton Speer, was in
troduced, and in an address which proved to
be the desert of the day's literary entertain
ment, spoke to the children in a clear and
forcible manner, at once interesting and in
structive, of the goodness of God, and the
great subject of human culture and instruc
- • - -,Lvers 0 c

, Give me the body that can do and suffer,

of any of these powers the educdtion is defi
cient. We wish that we could reproduce it
entire but suffice it to say, that in all that
constitutes a good address to children, which
is one of the most difficult fields for the Ora
tor, we have rarely heard the address of Sir.
Speer equalled.
After a vote of thanks to the speakers and
the choir, and benediction by Rev. J. W. Plan
nett, the audience disperses and ere long
wended their way to their several homes.
Thus ended a pleasant day, pleasantly, and
I trust, profitably spent by the Union Sabbath
Schools of Porter, and their friends.
All aboard for the Mammoth Store of Henry

urday morning last our citizens were horrified
on the announcement that a child, aged about
nineteen months, had met a vioientdeat at the
hands of its step, mother, Mrs. Sarah Parker,
residing in the Sixth ward, on the evening be.
fore, between the hours of five and six o'clock.
As far as we have been able to learn the par
ticulars of the sad affair, they are aboutras fol
lows : Mrs. Parker, formerly Mrs. Lang, mar
ried a Mr. Parker, a conductor on the Emi
grant train between Pittsburgh and this point,
sometime ago. Mr. Parker was the father of
the child, but the new wife did not take kind
ly to it, and report says had threatened, when
in a passion, to take its life, and oftentimes
punished it severely. On the day above named
she went to one of her neighbors and stated
that the child had fallen into a spasm, and on
the neighbor going into the house tne little
one was found to be dead. Other neighbors
were then called in, when officer Hazzard was
called, who immediately sent for Coroner
Humes, when a jury was summoned, an inquest
held, and a verdict rendered that the child
came to its death from strangulation at the
hands of Sarah Parker. Finger marks upon
the forehead and cheeks of the child indicated
that bands had been placed over the mouth of
the' chill, but whether strangulation was the
immediate cause of death would be difficult to
determine as it is also statedthere was a bruise
on the back part of the head. Mrs. Parker
was taken before Alderman Durbin, who NM
mitted the unfortunate woman to jail. She
says that she had been punishing the child,
and for the purpose of preventing its cries
reaching the ears of the neighbors, had placed
her, hands over its mouth, and not with any
intention of taking life. She was taken to
Hollidaysburg on Saturday, where she is now
waiting her trial.—Altoona Sun.
