LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER; MONDAt, FEBRUARYS, 1880.
AS OTHERS SEE US.
"AX OLD PENNSYLVANIA TOWN.
" Lancasterlan Window-gardening Old
Houses and Inns Habit and People
The Tobacco Mart."
"O. F. A." writes from tins city te the
Bosten Eteniny Trarucript, under date of
Feb. 2. as fellows :
One of the things which strikes a
straDger most pleasantly in Lancaster is
the window-gardening se prevalent
here. The whole community is fend
of llewers, and en some streets it is a
rare exception te find a window en the
first fleer net filled with flowers. Especi
ally is this the case amemj the poorer
people. And the plants thus cultivated
are net the common hardy sorts only, but
these demanding a geed deal of care in
in their cultivation. It would seem, some?
times, as if the humbler the circumstances
of the flower-owner, the greater luxuriance
of the flowers themselves. I often find
myself pausing before the windows in the
poorest neighborhoods which are fairly
ablaze with geraniums, callas, cyclamens,
and numerous ether blooms, or else a cool
delight of graceful ferns and rich begonias.
A people whose love of flowers is se in
tense as it appears te be here must cer
tainly have many ether excellent qualities.
One cannot wander far in any direction
in this old city without finding one or mere
leg houses. They abound in narrow alleys
in the heart of the city, or close te the strcet
Jine in localities removed from business
quarters, and are constructed of legs pre
viously squared by the axe, the inter
stices being filled with plaster. Occasion
ally one sees an old house cress-timbered
and with plaster-filling between, but these
are rarer. Of a later date, probably, but
still respectably antique, are the small one
. story dwellings of brick or stone which are
se numerous in certain neighborhoods and
en the elder streets. They are net im
piclurcsqne, these groups of houses, with
their low and broadly projecting caves and
A peculiar feature of the great majority
of houses in Lancaster and its vicinity is
the long, narrow balcony, which extends
along the rear of most dwellings in front of
the second and third stories. A house
without this balcony attached te the rear
building would hardly be considered com
plete here. As one takes a short cut
through an alley or side street, scores of
these balconies are te be seen, and the
pasier-by is perhaps faintly reminded of
some Italian city, where every dwelling
has its balcony or legria. Hut th.3 illusion
utterly disappears when one hears from
.sonic one of the Lancaster leggie, instead
of the liquid Italian tongue, the unmusical
guttural of the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Lancaster abounds in old hotels and tav
erns, the names of most of which show an
English origin. Fer instance, there arc
the .Maner Heuse and the Inn of the
Gelden Plew, the Cress Keys and the
Grape, the Black Herse, the Swan and the
Fountain Inn. The Lamb and the Leo Lee
pard are two mere of these old taverns
much frequented by farmers, but judi
ciously, considering the opposing nature
of the animals whose names they bear,
placed several squares apart. The Stevens
Heuse, named in honor of Lancaster's
great statesman, Thad Stevens, is by far
the most important hotel. It is a large,
four story building, extending ever a geed
deal of ground, at the corner of Prince
and King streets. It is, however, unfortu
nately placed en a sharp decline, and its
handsome proportions are nowhere seen
te the best advantage.
The pavement washing, te which allu
sion was made in a former letter, gees en
with scarcely abated ardor throughout the
winter. On ail days when snow has net
covered the sidewalks, which has but
rarely happened this winter, the scrubbing
has been indulged in unless the tempera
ture were such that the water froze as it
fell, and even then the desire for scouring
the pavements was net wholly te be re
strained in some quarters, I noticed.
I observed an odd figure in the street
the ether morning. It was that of a young
Amish boy of about fourteen. A long,
'snuff-colored coat fastened by hooks and
eyes, and with a deep cape, reached nearly
te his heels. His hair, cut straight across
his forehead, hung down en his shoulders,
while from beneath a preposterously broad bread
brimmed hat looked out an innocent,
sleepy German face. When the weather
is net se cold as te require him te wear an
overcoat, the male of the Amish persua
sion appears in a roundabout jacket with
out the faintest suspicion of skirts thereto.
A group of them in their short jackets and
heavy beards present an odd combination
of the juvenile and antique. An observer
se m learns te distingitsh the Amish men
from their Mennonite brethren. The for
mer wear long hair and beards, and, in the
days when it was all but universal for
mankind te shave the face, were known as
" beamy men. ' I he Mennonites, en the
contrary, wear neither beard nor mous
tache, and clip the hair quite short. It
used te be said the chief difference between,
the two faiths consisted in the fact that
the Amish fastened their coats with hooks
and eyes, while the Mennonites, or Men
nists, as they arc often called (pronounced
Mcn-ncests), used buttons. There are,
presumably, weightier matters of differ
ence than this, but this is the most clearly
apparent te an outsider. The Amish are
the strictest in their adherence te a pecu
liar costume, and I heard a story
a day or two since illustrative of
their rigor in such matters. Such
details of costume as suspenders are or
were considered as tee worldly for the at
tention of an Amish, and had been forbid
den. A young boy of the persuasion, iiutl
the wearing of trousers involved a constant
hitching up in order te keep them in place
contrived duringjthe absence of his parents
at meeting one Sunday te extemporize a
pair of suspenders for some bits of tow,
and for a time, let us hope, was happy.
But the period of his bliss was short.
When his elders returned from meeting,
the eye of the father was at once arrested by
the element of worldliness in his son's at
tire through the uncommon freedom from
bagginess of his pantaloons ; the use of
suspenders was revealed, and the unfortu
nate youth was commanded at once te re
move the offending tow strings and never
te venture te commit such a sin again.
I have spoken before of the quantity of
tobacco raised in Lancaster county. At
present the trade in that article is extremely
brisk, and would kindle te fever heat the
feelings of James I. were he here te witness
it. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, market
days, longbcferc the light, great Concstega
wagons rumble in from the country piled
high with tobacco, and as later in the day
one passes the huge tobacco warehouses in
various parts of this city, the street in front
is found te be filled with teams, the
owners of which are waiting for an oppor
tunity te dispose of their fragrant stock.
A pungent odor from the contents of the
wagons fills the air around. One breathes
tobacco. It mingles, tee, with the no less
penetrating aroma lrem the sauerkraut at
the neighboring beer saloons and restau
rants, and the combined perfumes float en
the breeze together a grateful species of
incense te the Lancastrians.
Arrest of Train Junipers.
On Saturday the Beading railroad police
made a raid en the train jumpeis all along
the line of the Lancaster aud Columbia
branch. Quite a number were captured,
taken before the nearest magistrate and
committed. One young fellow named
Demmy, of Lititz, tried te run away from
the officers, but was recaptured, and, it is
said, was badly kicked aud beaten. He
was taken before 'Squire Seltzer, of Eph
rata, and discharged en payment of a fine.
The officer who assaulted liim will proba
bly be prosecuted.
Anether Subscription fund Started In Lan
caster. " Subscriptions for the Herald Irish Re
lief Fund Received Here." Mr. Chas. H.
Barr, the Centre Square bookseller and sta sta
tiener,received this morning from the New
Yerk Herald a card bearing this inscription,
accompanied by a request that it be posted
in a conspicuous place, and it newliiigs in
the store window, where it can scarcely
fail te catch the eye of the passer-by. En
closed with it is a large subscription paper,
at the head of which is printed the follow
ing stirring appeal with a liberal display of
black letter :
Herald Irish Famine Fund.
Penular subscrintiens for the benefit of
the starving people et lreianu win ee re
ceived by the New Yerk Herald for any
amount, from twenty-five cents upwards.
The Herald will publish the name and
residence of every subscriber, and, when
desired, the place of his former residence
in Ireland, that the people relieved may
knew te whom they are indebted.
Over three hundred thousand people are
starving and appeal te the whole world
for aid. " Fer Ged's sake give us bread or
money," is their piteous cry.
Mr. Chas. II. Barr, of Lancaster, Pa., is
duly authorized te receive subscriptions te
the Herald Famine Fund, and has agreed
te turn ever te the cashier of the Herald
all subscriptions that may be entrusted
Persons who desire may hand their sub
scriptions te Mr. Barr, and they will be
duly credited. This fund, instituted by
the great New Yerk newspaper and
headed by its own subscription of $100,
000, is distinct from that in Mayer Mac
Gonigle'.s hands, which is the Citizens'
Irish Belief fund inaugurated in Philadel
phia. Se that the charitably disposed,
whose hearts have been touched by the
accounts of the piteous condition of the
famine-stricken people of Ireland, which
appear daily in the newspapers, may in a
literal sense " pay their money and take
their choice. "
A HORSE CASK
S225 at Stake.
On Friday last Geerge Keller, of Yerk
county came te Lancaster, having in his
possession a geed marc and sleigh, which
he tried te sell te several dealers. He
filially found a customer in Isaac AV.
Masen, who purchased the team for 223
giving in payment a check or note pay
able in thirty days. Masen sold the sleigh
for $10, and was negotiating for the sale of
the marc, when Harry Gundakcr (who
had leaned Masen $100 some years age ai d
had net been repaid) made a levy en
the maie te satisfy his claim. In
the meantime Constable Leutz,
supposing the team te have been
stolen, arrested Keller. He seen learned,
however, that Keller belonged te a re
spectable family, his father being an ex
tensive farmer in Yerk county, and he was
released. The mare is still held te satisfy
Gundaker's claim, and if she belonged te
Keller when Masen purchased her she
will be sold. If it should happen, which
is net probable, that she belongs te
some one else, the owner may claim her
by writ of replevin. Meantime Gundakcr,
Keller and Masen arc all en the anxious
bench, awaiting further developments.
An Infant Terribly Injured.
A terrible accident happened about 5
o'clock Saturday evening, at the
residence of Jehn Green, 720 East
Orange street. At the hour named
Mrs. Green left the house en an errand,
leaving in the kitchen her two small chil
dren, one of them a baby and the ether
about five years old. Soen afterwards tcr
rible screams were heard in the house by
Mr. Geerge B. Moriew, who lives next
deer, and running into the house he
found the baby in flames from
head te feet. Throwing a carpet
ever the child he extinguished the
flames. The child's body was burned te
a crisp from the waist up, presenting a
horrible appearance. Dr! Gee. R. Welch
ans was sent for and applied the usual
remedies. The child was living this morn
ing, but suffering great pain and it is fear
ed it cannot recover.
Just hew the accident happened is net
known, but it is supposed a coal of fire
was niked from the cook stove in the
kitchen where the children were, aud, fall
ing upon the babe's clothes, set them en
A SERIOUS CHARGE.
Disposing of Property te Defraud.
In October last Sheriff -Strinc made a
levy en the personal property of Samuel
Myers, of Mauhcim township, and adver
tised it for sale te satisfy claims of credi
tors. The court stayed the writ of execu
tion and the sheriff's levy remained a lien
en the property. Meantime, it is alleged,
Mr. Myers began te dispose of the prop
erty, consisting of cows, horses, and ether
farm stock and implements. This morning
the sherilf arrested him, but he was dis
charged en entering bail in the sum of
$2,000 for his appearance at court.
This morning the reef of the frame
building situated en the north side of the
Pennsylvania track, between the Duke
street bridge and the passenger depot,
known as the "old match factory," was
found te be en fire. The alarm was im
mediately given, and a little water which
was thrown en by the firemen prevented
any great damage. The building, which
was insured, is the property of Mr. Jehn
Keller. The fire is supposed te have been
caused by a locomotive spark.
The Pythias Entertainment.
On Saturday evening the entertainment
for the benefit of the Pythias club by Prof.
Lippett came oft' te a large audience in the
opera house. The $20 geld piece was drawn
by Henry Smcych and a large number of
ether handsome and valuable presents
were given away. The entertainment was
similar te these given heretofore by Prof.
Lippett and was equally as geed.
Car off the Track.
This morning a car leaded with iron ere
and attached te the second morning train
from Quarry ville, jumped the track a short
distance below West Willow. The train
was delayed about an hour and a half by
Supposed stolen Chickens.
This morning about 6 o'clock a man
named Jehn Amdt, who has figured before
in police circles, was caught en East King
street by Officer Helman, with three chick
ens in his possession, which are believed
te have been stolen. He was locked up.
Meeting of Bricklayers.
The meeting of bricklayers held at
Trewitz's saloon Saturday evening was
quite well attended and the utmost har
mony prevailed. The following resolu
tions proposed at a former meeting were
unanimously agreed te :
Resolved, That en and after the 15 of
March, 1880, the journeymen bricklayers
will demand for a day's wages (10 hours
work) the sum of $2.
Jieseked, further, That we de also pro pre
test against all trade work.
The only ether matter discussed was the
organization of a bricklayers' association.
The nreiect seemed te meet with favor
from all present, and en motion Jacob
Price, Henry Leenard and Geerge Snyder
were appointed a committee te report a
plan. The meeting adjourned te meet at
the call of the committee.
Balloon for St. Leuis.
A private letter received in this city an
nounces that Prof. Chas E. Wise, the
aeronaut, late of Lancaster,has received an
order for building a very large balloon for
a gentleman in St. Leuis, with wlirSli te
make an ascension from that citythe coming
season. The tragic fate of the veteran
aeronaut, Prof. Jehn Wise and his young
companion Burr, who ascended from St.
Leuis and were lest last summer, has net
in any degree checked the passion for bal
looning, or the belief that science will dis
cover means te makcajrial navigation as safe
aud expeditions as it is infinitely mere
charming than water navigation.
There is some talk of having an ascen
sion from Lititz en the. Fourth of July.
When shall we have another ascension
from Lancaster ?
This morning the mayor had four drunks
and six bums before him. The latter were
discharged, as were the three drunks.
Michael McKay, for being drunk, was sent
te jail for 15 days, where he will be com
pany for his wife, who was arrested en
