M. D. Kcndig thought the best time is
when they first appear te nip them in the
S. P. Eby mentioned an instance of hew
the Canada thistle had been destroyed : It
cannot live without lungs, and by cutting
it off and destroying the tops, and repeat
edly plowing up or plowing under the
roots and planting in corn, the pest may
be destroyed. He thought this the het
time of year te cut briars and ciders.
Jehn II. Landis, said there was a patch
of Canada thistles en his farm that had
been dug up by the roots five years in suc
cession, but they could net be get rid of.
New they are kept down by repeated
Jehnsen Miller said a friend of his had
get rid of the thistle by cutting them oil
and sewing the patch with salt and cover
ing it with straw manure.
Calvin Cooper believed the plan recom
mended above by Mr. Eby would kill the
thistle if iersisted in. Te destroy the
elders he thought the best plan was te pull
up the young sprouts while they are grcm
President Witmer said he had destroyed
whole hedges of elders and briers along
the inside fences by removing the fences,
cutting away the ciders and thoroughly
plowing up the greud. This is the best

the Downey, Wilder, Sanders, and Musser

riiicning, and hence de net appear te as
geed advantage as they otherwise might.
Calvin Cooper exhibited a specimen of the
red Astrachan of geed size and fine ap
carance and flavor.
A Newspaper Fraud.
Yesterday a beat, who represented him'
self as being agent for Die Laterne, the
German weekly newspaper, called en a
number of German citizens, from several
of whom he received money. His mode of
operations was as fellows : He would call
at a house and tell the woman that her
husband had subscribed for the paper
and had sent him for the money.
In most cases the women swallowed the
bait and the man received at least $1, and
at some houses $2. After getting the
money he would give a receipt. A number
of these receipts have been examined and
it has been ascertained that they all bore
different names, all of which, how
ever, were in the same hand
writing. The man is short and stout ; he
has a light moustache and his hair is cut
short He is rather dirty and is inclined
te be impudent. At several houses he
almost forced money from women by
frightening them. The publishers of the
Laterne have been troubled considerably
te-day en account of the transactions of
this man, who is a fraud of the first
water, having no connection whatever
with any newspaper.

DEATH OF A LANCASTEK SOLDIKK.
Captured and Killed by Indians.
A postal card received te-day by J. P.
Martin, of the Relay house,anneunccs that
David Strachau, bugler of Ce. 15., 8th U.
S. Cavalry, was recently captured
and killed by the Indians in the vicinity of
Fert Clark, Texas. The postal was written
by Scrgt. Dudley of Ce. B., 8th Cavalry,
who wants te knew what shall be done
with Mr. Strachan's effect.
David Strachau, when a boy of 10 years
en'isted in Nevin's battery and served
during the rebellion. At the close
ei the war he enlisted in the
81 h Cavalrv and served live
years, when he came home and after
spending some time East, re-enlistcd aud
has been in the army ever since. He was
bem and raised in Lancaster, was a
brother of Dr. W. T. Strachau, new of

He was a daring soldier and a geed fellow,

This afternoon Mr. J. Gust Zeek, tobac

ing the horse's head and pushing him
from the track just in time te save Mr.
Zeek from being crushed beneath the

that it is almost a miracle that Mr. Zeek
escaped. Hew much longer will the peo
ple tolerate the criminal neglect of the

watchman at this dangerous crossing?

General Hancock and Mr. English, official
ly informing them of their nominatien.The
letter te Gen. Hancock invites his atten
tion te the Cincinnati platform, which em
bodies the general principles of the Demo
cratic party, and condemns the maladmin maladmin
istrateon by the party in power, its crimes
against the constitution, and espe
cially against the right of the
people te cheese and instal their president.
The general is further informed that what
chiefly inspired his nomination was the
fact that he had conspicuously recognized
and exemplified the yearning of the Ameri
can people, for reconciliation under the
constitution. The letter te English is
similar in tone.
