Sunday School Jubilee. —Rev. Edwin M.
Long, the children's preacher, will deliver
his sermon, "Little Things that are not
Little," illustrated by paintings, to the
Sunday Schools of this place, in the Pres
byterian church, on Sunday afternoon
next, at half jast 2 o'clock. The differ
ent schools will meet in the Presbyterian
lecture room this (Wednesday) evening
at 6 o'clock, to practice music for the oc
Tora Legal Tender and National Notes. —
It does not seem to he generally known
tliat these notes, when torn, are not re
deemed in full. The scale adopted divides
the note into 2!) parts, consequently if
one-twentieth is torn from a $5 note the
loss to the holder would be 50 cents,
and so with all other denominations.
We saw two one dollar notes the other
i iy, one of which was worth only eighty
five cents, and the other ninety. The
same rule applies to postal currency.
Strange Spectacle. —The mountain on the
south side of the Juniata, a few miles be
low town, on Wednesday evening last
presented the singular spectacle of being
two-thirds covered with snow while the
timber was on fire. It originated at the
water station at Bixler's Gap, where
freight trains are in the habit of empty
ing their asli pans, a proceeding which
ought to be executed with more care or a
watchman stationed there to guard against
such conflagrations. We have often seen
ties burning near that spot, and should
not be surprised some day to chronicle an
accident to a passenger train from such
•cause. The question may also arise
whether the Ilailroad is not liable for all
injury sustained from these fires, several
of which, originating at that spot, have
wept over thousands of acress of wood
land. It is certainly the business of some
officer connected with the road to see to
this matter, and ordinary prudence it
seems to us would dictate a remedy.

the United States, of the Independent Or

Dry Times—No Liquor to be Had— The
action of the court in postponing the li
cense applications to the 7th May, has
closed all the liquor establishments in the
county, and any one now selling that ar
ticle, or lurnishing it to persons of intem
perate habits, will do it at the peril of the
law. 1 hose disposed to make a trial
\> hether they can dispense with the arti
cle, and thus keep sober, have now a fair
opportunity of doing so, the " Maine law''
to all intents and purposes being in full
force for the time being. Well, as it is
hard to he got, let every toper go to work,
and the moment lie begins to feel dry
drink a tumbler ot water and eat a cracker
or biscuit with it. He can repeat this
dose as often as he chooses, and by bed
time still feel "bully." No drink, no
drunk! No liquor, no lickher! Kein
lager, kein beer, der Teufel isht liier! I

B*sL.The Cincinnatiexpresseast), which
left Pittsburgh at eleven a. ni., on Sunday,
was thrown from the track near Wall Sta
tion, on the Pennsylvania Railroad. The
engine, tender, express, and two baggage
cars were badly wrecked. Martin Brock
en, of Pittsburgh, brakeman, had his thigh
severely fractured, and was also injured
internally. His recovery is doubtful. Pe
ter McCauly, of Latrobe, Pa., was injured
i.i tiie foot. Robert H. Kerr, of Latrobe,
the engineer of the train, was scalded and
internally injured. Win. Wilhelm, of
Philadelphia, baggage master, was some
what injured. Xone of the passengers
were hurt. The wreck was (caused by
live cross-ties and a rail being placed
across the track. A suspicious looking
man was seen in a meadow near by, and
was arrested, when lie confessed to hav
ing placed the obstructions on the track,
but declines to answer any questions, or
to give his name.
The unusual sight of a wood train car

Cigar Boxes.— As many business men
are subjecting themselves to a heavy pen
alty by their ignorant violation of the
thirty-second section of the revenue law
passed at the close of the Thirty-ninth
Congress, it is stated, for the information
of all concerned, that the section in ques
tion enacts —
" That any person who shall sell, give
away or otherwise dispose of any cigar
box or boxes which have Been stamped,
without lirst defacing or destroying such
stamp, shall, on conviction of either of
fense, be liable to a penalty of one hun
dred dollars or to imprisonment not ex
ceeding sixty days, or both, in the discre
tion of the court, with the, costs of the tri
al ; and it shall bo lawful for any cigar in
spector or revenue officer to destroy any
empty cigar box upou which a cigar stamp
may be found.

PI.UM CRF.EK, Nebraska.
MESSRS. EDlTOßS —Thinking of you
this evening, I thought I might while
away an hour or so in scribbling a few
lines in regard to this country. I left old
Mifflin March sth, and in company with
two others, reached this place by Sunday
night, ten o'clock ; stuck one night and
day in a snow bank, but fortune favored
us—we were near a wood pile, which we
sawed in tiie cars, and having rations
along did not sutler in the least. The
train following us from Omaha was snow
ed up seven days, and some of the passen
gers were frozen to death. It was noth
ing strange to see snow-banks higher than
the tops of the cars. There is twenty
miles of this road between Lone Tree and
Grand Island that will take two hundred
men two or three days to clear up. The
country about here is not worth much for
farming purposes; on account of alkali
nothing will grow. Game is plenty, such
as buffalo, antelope, wolves, prairie dogs,
and last but not least, Indians, mostly
Sioux. There is trouble expected along
this route in the spring, as they have
threatened to stop this railroad from go
ing through their hunting grounds.
We are about ten miles from the over
land trail to Denver. The train from
North Platte arrived here Tuesday, 19th,
übout three o'eloek, and before the pas
sengers all had dinner they were snowed
up, and did not get away until the 21st.
This station is 230 miles west of Omaha,
and 60 miles east of North Platte. Our
station can boast of an eating-house, tick
et, telegraph, and Wells, Fargo A Co.'s
express offices, all under same roofing,
and run by an enterprising young man
from little Mifflin county. The Co. in
tend reaching Denver by branch road, be
ing 80 miles from main line. They are
making every preparation to commence
grading by Ist of April.
Wages are good, from 3 dollars per day
to SSO j>er month and board. Rates of
fare ten cents per mile. Freight is very
high. There is a heavy travel expected
over this route to Colorado, Montana, and
other gold regions when spring opens.
