CATCHING A FAWN.—Who has not
been prompted, by almost irresistible impulse,
when he has gazed, with the most delighted
admiration, upon a beautifully spotted, exqui
sitely modelled, delicately finished and ex
tremely timid baby deer, to run to it and
grasp in is arms, and in fondness and in kind
ness, in love and in reverence, press it to his
throbbing heart? There is nothing in anima
ted nature so transcendently beautiful to us,
nothing so much calculated to enrapture us
as one of these specimens of God's goodness,
and while we utter these candid sentiments
we feel that we are not alone in entertaining
them, as the following incident will prove:
Up the beautiful valley of Stone Creek lives
an honest son of industry, in whose heart has
been planted a supreme love for the beautiful.
A few weeks since, on a fair day in August,
our hero's attention was called to the fact that
a most splendid specimen of the infantile deer
was feeding leisurely upon a field contiguous
to his dwelling. Yes, there it was in all its
symmetrical proportions and timidness, harm
lessly and innocently tresspassing!
"Get a gun and shoot it!" exclaimed half a
score of hoarse throats.
"No !" said our humanitarian emphatically,
and cast the cruel suggestion from him in the
pure charity of his soul, "We will catch it!"
Now it is no light matter to catch a baby
deer! But our hero argued that all they had
to do was to drive it to the high fence and
corner it and the thing would be done. The
idea looked so plausible that even those who
doubted entered into the scheme with a vim.
A moment or two more and the beautiful
creature before them would be in their posses
sion and the thought was entertained with
great zest I The fawn was circumvented, they
closed in upon it and carefully drove it toward
the trap set for it. • "Hist!" be careful below;
"lookout!" shove "now, gently I" The fawn
pricked up its cars, began to lope gracefully
in the direction of the fatal spot, scarcely
manifesting any alarm at the proximity of its
pursurers, loped up within a couple of yards
of the fence and halted I "Now, boys, we have
it, quick I quick I" and in they came. But the
halt was only momentarily, when they gazed
again from their headlong speed they saw
only the empty space. The fawn had depar
ted ! It had halted, then summoning all its
strength, it leaped through the fence beneath
the rider and disappeared behind the hill, and
there stood our hero bewildered, amazed ,
dumb-founded, ejaculating only "Fah, its
gone I" It is needless to say that every body
laughed at him and that he now considers all
DEDICATION OF TUE NEW M. E.
Cutracis AT BEnTos.D.--The New Methodist
Episcopal Church, erected under the super
vision of the Rev. A. W. Gibson, at Bedford,
was formally dedicated, on last Sunday eve
ning, in the presence of a vast audience of
citizens and strangers. The morning service
was conducted by Dr. R. L. tlashiel, Presi
dent of Dickinson College, who preached an
excellent discourse. and in the evening, Dr. B.
B. Hamlin, of this place, delivered one of the
most splendid sermons it has ever been our
privilege to listen to. The singing and music
ou the occasion were conducted by Dr. E. J.
Greer , . and his accomplished wife, of Hun
tidgdon,and were the theme of universal praise
and admiration. During the day and evening
some twenty-one hundred and fifty dollars
wer subscribed, leaving only a thousand or
twelve hundred dollars of an indebtedness re
maining. The total cost of the structure, fur
nished for use,will fall very little, if any, short
of nineteen thousand dollars. This is certain
ly very creditable to Bedford, especially so as
she has several other expensive church enter
prises on hand. We repeat what we have said
previously, that too much credit conuot be
given to Rev. A. W. Gibson for the success of
this splendid enterprise. The people of Bed
ford nboala kerne...bee
life lasts, and when death comes they should
strive to meet him on the other shore. Many
others are entitled to great credit for their
valuable services, among those are William
L. Horn, the architect and carpenter, and John
L. Lessig, the master mason, and especially
the Ladies' Furnishing Society, under the
Presidency of Mrs. Annie D. Shuck. The lat
ter secured all the carpets, chandeliers, lamps,
furniture, &c. The Methodists of Bedford have
now a church of which they can wsll be
•IMMENSE QUANTITIES OF FOSSIL ORE.
—Discoveries at Rock Bill Furnace.—We ac
knowledge the receipt of the following item
from our friend, P. P. Dewees, Esq., of Rock
Hill Furnace, which speaks for itself. Mr.
Dewees says :
"During the month of August I made the
following discovery in the Fossil Ore Bank,
at Rock Hill Furnace, on Black Log moun
tain, which you are at liberty to communicate
to the public through your paper
"The gang-way in one mine was driven four
teen yards, and we took out forty-five tons of
ore. The gang way is six feet in height. The
different drifts that have been run in demon
strate that the ore from the bottom of the
present gang-way to the top of the ground is
three hundred feet, making in every fourteen
yards twenty-two hundred and fifty tons of ore.
This is three and a fourth tons to a yard in
the gang-way which shows that every yard of
the ground worked with the present drifts has
one hundred and sixty-tw., I ms of ore, i. e.
from the bottom.of the gang-way to the top
of the ground (300 feet.) One other drift can
be put in of one hundred feet which will be
above water level ; and how much deeper this
ore runs we cannot tell. This vein of ore is
from thirty to thirty-six inches in thickness and
extends along Black Log mountain, on the
property of Rock Hill Furnace, for four miles.
This vein is really a curiosity to any
one who may feel interested in the mineral
wealth of Huntingdon county. Visitors will
find the ore just as described above, and will
also be shown ores of different characters—that
must prove,that in this section of Huntingdon
county, ores are as abundant, if not more so,
than in any other part of the State.
A MAN SERIOUSLY STABBED.—ShICC
the strike there has been some quarrelling
among different parties and black eyes are
occasionally to be seen. On Saturday evening
the 2nd inst., an affray occurred at Powell's
store just as the cars stopped on their way up
to Dudley. A man named Ed. Linch stabbed a
man called Brinkley Trout eight times inflict
ing severe wounds. The stabs were in the
head, back, breast and side from a knife fur
nished by a man named John Eckert. One of
the stabs in the left side entered the pleural
cavity, severing an intercostal artery. He
bled very freely, his clothes being completely
saturated with blood. He has been under the
treatment of Dr. A. R. IPCarthy, a skillful
young physician, and he is recovering slowly.
The parties concerned in this affray, were Ed.
Lynch, James Donahoe, Owen Donahoe, John
Eckert and James Eckert. Several of these
Lave been arrested and lodged in jail.
OVER THE BEDFORD AND BRIDGEPORT
RAILROAD.-On last Saturday evening we
passed over that portion of the Bedford and
Bridgeport Railroad lying between Mt. Dallas
the Jameson farm, two miles east of Bedford,
returning over the same on Monday morning,
through the courtesy of Superintendent Mc
%Blips, of the Broad Top Road, and our friend,
conductor Ileum. We shall not attempt a
description of the route as we contemplate
doing this on another occasion. The road bed
is very solid and smooth and admits of very
speedy travel. The cars will be run through
to Bedford as soon as possible ; it is thought
by Monday of next weak at farthest, w hen a
grand opening will take place. We expect to
be on band and see what the Bedford people
think of the iron horse.

THE STRIKE AMONG TUE MINERS CON
TINUES.-Many of the miners, it is said, are
anxious to go to work but fear to do so. Those
working at Powell's mine appear to be in con

or property. James Thompson, of Coalmont,
when passing along the road between Miners
ville and Coalmont, at about midnight, sever
al weeks ago, was fired at by a person con
cealed near the road and who immediately
fled. The pistol ball passed through Thomp
son's hat. He fired two or three shots after
the would-be assassin but failed to kill him or
bring him too.
The interest far one year on the price of a

In calling public attention to this little machine,

It ie the smallest, most compact, most portable,
most simple in construction, most easily operated.
A child ten years old, with a few hours' practice,
can thoroughly comprehend and effectually use it.
There is nu adjusting, no screws to annoy, no de
lay in adapting ! It is always ready for use! It is
a perfect little wonder! It is a miniature giant,
doing more work and of a better quality, than the
most elaborate and costly. Oue half of the labor
is fully saved by its use, and the clothes will last
one-half longer than by the old plan of the rub
board. It will wash the largest blanket. Three
shirts at a titer, washing thoroughly! In a word,
the ablution of any fabric, from a Quilt to a Lace
Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, are equally
within the capacity of this Little Gem ! It can be
fastened to any tub and taken off at will.
No matter how deep rooted a prejudice may ex
ist against Washing Machines, the moment this
little machine is seen to perform its wonders, all
doubts of its cleansing efficacy and utility are
banished, and the doubter and detractor at once
become the fast friends of the machine.
We have testimonials without end, setting forth
its numerous advantages over all others, and from
hundreds who have thrown aside the unwidely,
useless machines, which have signally failed to ac
complish the object promised in prominent and
It is as perfect for washing as a wringer is for
