We hope our readers will excuse the ap
pearance of the inside pages of the JOURNAL
last week. Our press room was as cold as
Greenland, and it was impossible to work our
paper in its usual handsome style. We arc
all right now, and the JOURNAL shall be a head
and shoulders above all °the: papers in this
bailiwick, as far as its typographical appear
ance is concerned.
Tho Fulton Republican ; of the ith inst, pub
lished at McConnellsburg, after copying our
local, has the following:
"The Tramp came hero in the Bedford stage
on Friday evening and put up at the 'Fulton
House,' putting on considerable style, and
sporting that 'identical coat.' On Saturday at
the dinner table he used offensive language
when we called his attention to the fact that
ladies were present, to which he replied that he
didn't see any, for which we knocked the
scoundrel down, and kicked him out of the
room. The same afternoon he struck across
the mountain eastward, carryi:g that 'ldenti
cal Coat.' "
The right direction for 'him to have taken
would have been southward, where old “Square
Toes" would have kept him warm enough with
out the use of our overeat. It would afford
us extreme pleasure to take the toe of our
boot from the region of that coat tail.
THE LOCAL JOuitNAL.—The local paper
of to day, supplanted as it has been in general
and political news by the great papers of the
city, is nevertheless, neither insignificant in the
influence it exerts, nor without a high respon•
sibility for the manner in which it is conduct
ed, for it has charge of the home life of the
communities through which it circulates. This,
of itself, makes its calling honorable, while it
requires a tact, a fine power of discrimina
tion, a conscientious rectitude of judgment,
from which, it seems to us, that journals
which feel the pulse a little father away from
the heart, are in the main exempt. Scars and
deformities do not show in a crowd as they do
when a person is atone. It is one thing to
mirror the rush and turmoil of the crowded
mart, another to vouch for the quiet picture
of the fireside. Woe betide the editor of the
local sheet if a "personal" creeps into his pa
per that deviates one whit from the truth, and
however cautions his pen, if it lose one jot of
its alertness, the sacredness of home and pri
viate life will have been invaded in his ambi
tious colums. But it is this very sensitiveness
of its columns that'allould be, and is the pride
of the country press. Herein lies its leverage
upon the thinking and feeling that is close to
the inmost life of the people, and if well used,
becomes a far more beneficent educator in its
own field than even the large papers that
overshadow it in pretension.
Just such an organ of influence as this is
your paper to you, its patrons. It tells you of
your own local events, of your daily life, Laps
and mishaps, of your joys and sorrows, deaths,
marriages, whatever befalls you, as far as it
dare invade your private life. It comments
upon them with whatever wisdom and dis
crimination it may command, and if it does
this well, with conscientious interests in your
welfare, it becomes to you a necessity that
you cannot well dispense with. As indenti
fied with your local business interests, yoitr
various improvements and your general wel
fare, it is your co-equal, your best friend and
steady helper, early and late. If it does not
fully represent every locality in which it cir
culates, a more zealous co-operation of its pa
trons will enable it to do so, and doing this it
occupies its legitimate field, and is a power in
your midst which it becomes you to foster
with a generous hand and an intelligent ap
preciation. You might nearly as well forgat
your churches, your academics and school.
houses, as to forget or neglect your local pa
per. It speaks to ten times the audience that
your local minister does, and if it has any abil
ity at all it is read eagerly each week from be
ginning to end. It reaches you all, and if it
has a lower spirit and less wisdom than a
sermon, it has a thousand times better chance
at you. Lying, as it does, open upon every
table, in almost every house, you owe it to
yourselves to rally liberally to its support, and
exact from it, as able, as high-toned a charac
ter as you do from any educator in your midst.
It is in no sense beneath your notice and care
—unless you yourselves are beneath notice
and care—for it is your representative. In
deed in its cheracter it is the summation of the
importance, interest and welfare to you all.
It is the aggregation of your own consequence,
and you cannot ignore it without miserably
depreciating yourselves.
TIENTS.-Have the patient placed in one of the
upper rooms of the house, the farthest remo
ved from the rest of the family, where is to be
had the best ventilation and isolation. Keep
the room constantly well aired. Remove al
carpets and woolen goods and all unnecessary
furniture. Change the clothing of the patient
as often as needful, but do not carry it while
dry through the house, but first place it at the
bedside in a bucket of scalding water before
retnovarfrom the room. If infected clothing
cannot be washed at once, let it be set to soak
in water, to which my be added of a saturated
solution of permanganate of potasse or of

Small-pox is supposed to be most contagi
ous during convalescence, therefore strictly
observe that the patient does not mingle with
the family until the scabs are entirely off, and
only after a thorough purification by washing
and entire change of clothing. After the pa
tient is well, ur leaves the room, let it be puri
fied by the use of disinfectants, by whitewash
ing, and by scrubbing the paint and floor with
soap, s&la and water, and let such rooms or
apartments be well aired before being again
occupied. In regard to food and medicine,
always rely on the advice of a physician, who
should be sent for as early as possible.
The way the orders come in for candies,
nuts and toys show that country dealers know
where the Bee Hive is, and that their orders
are filled promptly.
ACCIDENT.—Capt. D. Ross Miller, of
Franklinrille, in this county, we are pained to
learn, was seriously injured - on Friday last by
being thrown from his horse, while onhis way
from his residence to Bald Eagle Valley.
When passing a farm house on the way, the
horse became frightened at a dog which leaped
into the road, and wheeling suddenly tripped
and fell, throwing the rider some distance on
the frozen ground, dislocating his right shoul
der, and inflicting other .injurits upon his
face and right leg. He is recovering, but will
be disabled for some time, from the effects of
the accident.
Another new lot of toys just received and
opened out at the Bee Hive.

FIRE.—The dwelling house occupied by
Michael Brown, in Brady township, about 2
miles from Mill Creek, took fire from a defec

the benevolence of a - Christlau public.

the leaves arc boiled down In the proportion
of a quart to a pint, and a small wine glass of

—Mr. John G. Hartley, Jr., of Snake Spring

engaged in cutting fodder with a machine, was
seriously injured by the bursting of the bal
ance wheel. The machine was driven by horse
power, and while running at a high speed the
balance wheel burst awl a piece of nine or ten
pounds in weight struck Mr. Hartley in the
abdomen and inflicted a painful and danger

On Friday last at about noon, the barn of
J. S. Hetrick, in Middle Woodbury township,

a fine yearling colt, bay, fodder, straw, about
300 bushels of corn, wagons, farrnineutensils,
&c. The origin of the fire is unknown. Loss

JUNIATA COUNTY.—Last Saturday evening
as Mr. William Cunningham, of Milford twp.
was crossing the lower basin bridge, in this
place, in a one horse spring wagon, his horse
became frightened and jumping to one side
fell over and pulled the wagon after him, Mr.
C. going down with it. The horse and wagon
escaped without injury. Mr. Cunningham was
seriously injured about the head and back by
the wagon falling on him. He was carried to
the residence of Alexander Ellis, where he
was carefully attended to. He was able to be

On Tuesday night of last week, Daniel Pletz,
a night watchman on the Pennsylvania rail
road, in the narrows, about three miles above
Patterson, was instantly killed by the second
section of the Cincinnati Express east. He
was standing on the south track watching a
freight train passing on the north track, when
the Cincinnati came thundering along and
hurried him into eternity. Mr. Peitz failed to
discover that the first section of the Cincin
nati Express, which had passed down a few
minutes before, had red lights on the engine,
indicating that another train would follow,
and the noise of the passing train drowned
the whistle of the passenger engine, and the
train could not be seen as there was a sharp
curve to be turned. Mr. Pelts was about 50
years of age, and leaves a wife and family to
mourn his loss .-11.
Blum Corxrr.—On Wednesday evening last,
about half-past eight o'clock, our citizens were
startled by the alarm of fire, which it was soon
discovered proceeded from the United States
Hotel, Juniata. street. With commendable
promptitude the members of the various fire
companies were out and on their way to the
scene of conflagration. The extreme coldness
of the night and other difficulties operated to
retard the movements of the Phoenix engine
company, but in spite of all obstructions, in
just fifteen minutes after the alarm was given
a stream of water had been turned upon the
burning roof. And weilesire to say right here
that the entire fire department of gollidays.
burg deserve great credit for the prompt and
efficient manner in which they checked the
ravages of a fire which but for them might
have become general. Our firemen have proven
themselves as capable and energetic as any
similar organization in the State, and this,
too, on the first trial, surrounded by a throng
of excited incapables. We cannot praise them
too highly.
The fire is supposed to have originated from
a defecttve flue, and first appeared on the south
east corner of the building. It had evidently
been burning a considerable time, as early iu
the evening members of the family imagined
they smelled burning soot. A search had in
deed been made without discovering anything
suspicious. The alarm wa, not given until
the flames had burst through the roof, and by
the time the Pheenix company turned the wa
ter upon it, it was entirely covered.
The roof was entirely destroyed ; the garret
and third story much injured, and here the
damage by fire may be said to have stopped.
The building was, however, inundated from
garret to cellar, with water, and of course
considerably damaged, licoh of the furniture,
which was hastily and unwisely removed, was
broken up. Upon the building there was an
insurance of $7,000, and on the furniture $3,-
