A Circus Tent in the Sixth ward.
Jehn Spcidcl get tired having his wagon
lying out en the Millcrsvillc turnpike
with the remains of the Republican Eighth
ward pole en it, se the broken stick was
dumped into the dirt as its party will he in
In tlie SUtli Ward.
The best Republican workers of the
Sixth ward went te the country a few days
age and cut a pole which they left lying in
the gutter at the corner of Walnut street
and Cherry alley. The stick, which is as
" crooked " as some of these who handled
it, measures CI or 70 feet, and after
several announcements it was arranged
that it should be erected last evening.
About 4 o'clock in the afternoon a crowd
of boys and a few men, including Geerge
Shay, O. Washington Jack, esq., Gee. W.
Gerber, Jehn II. Bewman, the standing
candidate for constable of the Sixth ward,
he is called the "standing" candi
date because he docs net run well,
Themas C. Wiley and several ethers,
gathered at the spot. AfteV a great deal
of noise, most of which was made by G.
Washington Jack, and some weik, the pole
was placed in position and at last accounts
it was still standing. It did net require a
derrick te erect the stick, which is net
much longer than a telegraph pole, and is
net nearly as large as the poles which the
Democratic boys erect in different paitsef
the city every night. There was no enthu
siasm when the pole was up, and the en
tire affair was very tame. A Hag will be
put en the pole hhei tly, provided Tem
Wiley purchases it as he premised.
In the vacant let where the pole stands
the Republicans have erected a tent which
closely resembles these used by showmen
who have big snakes, Australian children,
fat women and living skeletons te exhibit.
There are no banners en the outside of the
tent as yet. It uuld be an excellent idea
for the Republicans of this ward te give
this tent te J. IJe.. man, G. Washing ten Jack
and their friends, and allow them te give
exhibitions in it.Tuerc arc many well known
Republican pel formers living in that ward
who might draw a laiire audience by ap
pearing iu some of their original but well
worn acts. Chief Cleik of the Senate
Cochran will be expected te leek after the
plumbing, tin bucket:;, soap and carpets.
Postmaster Marshall might de his famous
political pei fermanee of riding two horses
at the same time, going in opposite direc
tions ; Tem Davis ean give the boys some
rare juggling, and if Cam Muhlenberg
could be prevailed en te stay in town he
could exhibit the little joker, In the uni
versal delight of J. W. Jehnsen.
One of the very prettiest poles in the
city was put up by the Democratic boys
of the east end of the Sixth waid last even
ing. It stands en the property of Jehn
Hcidig, near the coiner of Walnut and
Pulton sheets, a sheit distance cast of the
Pcnu iron works. The pole is 117 feet in
length, as straight as an Indian arrow,
and away up at the very top of it is perched
a game cock, with head erect and crewing.
A streamer, an Ameiican flag and a beard
bearing the names of " Hancock and Eng
lish" arc also borne aloft by the superb
hickory. Tlie boys put it up iu exactly 18
minutes and had a geed time afterward.
Especial praise is due te the Hcidig boys,
Mike and Andy, for the cxK-ditien with
which the pole was raised.
The Hancock bes of the Seventh ward
who recently eiectcd a line hickory pole at
the corner of Freybeig and Locust streets,
received te-day from New Yerk a hand
some bunting ll.ig, fl by 10 feet, which
will be flung te the hrccze to-meirow.
Uncle Ad. Dietiich gave the Democratic
boys of the Eighth ward a line pole 85 feet
highand in about ten minutes last evening
they raised it en Maner street, opposite the
corner of Derwart.
Serenaded by the I.eldcrkraiir.
Last evening the members of the Lan
caster Lcideiknuiz met in their hall above
the Schiller house and proceeded iu a body
te the saloon of Jehn Spanglcr, the presi
dent of the organization. They gave Mr.
Spangler a line serenade. A number of
songs were sung and different musical in
stalments were played upon. Mr. Spang
ler had an excellent collation prepared te
which the singers sat down. The evening
was very pleasantly spent and the party
broke up at a seasonable hour.
Yesterday was also the ninety-second
anniversary of the biith of Frank Spang
ler, the lather of Jehn Spangler, and
when the Leiderkrauz visited his son last
evening they paid their compliments te the
old patriarch, who was much gratified
with the attention.
Hlore Railroad Rumors.
A West Chester paper says : ' Within
the past few days a prominent citizen of
Lancaster city visited Wilmington, Del.,
and had an interview with a well known
railroad man of that place, in reference te
the proposed extontien of the Wilmington
and Western railroad te connect with the
Lancaster and Quarryville railroad, which
would pass through Kimbleville, and
thence te Oxford. If this link should be
made, it will be of very great benefit te the
lower section of the county, and all the
people resident along the route which it
would traverse, in cheapening their coal,
enabling them te erect manufactories, and
give them a new outlet te a country te
which they new have no access."

The Father' Dreadful Discovery Death of

Woodsen L. Gunnells is a farmer who
resides in Webster comity, Ga., twenty
miles west of Americus. Returning en
Wednesday night from a visit te a sick
neighbor, he found his wife and nine of his
ten small children iu a horrible sleep
from the effects of morphine ad
ministered in lemonade by Mrs.
Gunnells. There is no doubt that .she pre
pared the fatal beverage and administered
it te the children and drank of it herself
with fatal intent. Mr. Gunnells was mar
ried te this, his second wife, about seven
years age, and has by her four children"
The ether six are by a previous wife, and,
as far as is known the step-mother has
been a dutiful and kind parent te them
Mrs. Gunnells was the daughter of Dr.
Tul lis, of the same county, and is of :i
highly lcspcctablc family.
A note in the handwriting of Mrs. .Gun
nells was found under a merphia hotUeon a
table, in which she stated that she had de
liberately administered merphia te the
children and herself, with the intention of
dcstieying them all and that she was net
actuated by any domestic trouble. Owing
te the lapse of time before medical aid ar
rived Mrs. Gunnells' case was hepelesF.
She lay en her back en the bed in the un
natural sleep preduced'by the fatal drug,
and all offertsof the physicians and sympa
thizing friends te restoie her were futile.
She died in four hours. Three of the chil
dren are likely te die ; the ethers may re
cover. The whole tragedy is utterly inex
plicable. TANNER'S CONDITION GOOD.

upon the last day of his fast, suffering in

He walks around the enclosure every hour

him, but every move he makes produces
pain. During the morning he was very
low, bnt rceuted the preposition te put a
mustard plaster or his stomach and said
nothing would benefit him new but beef,
wine and iron.
At neon he declared his condition
"geed." A chemical analysis of the lluid
from his stomach shows that the fast has
been honestly conducted. Twe proposals
