Bush's residence. This week he will go

friends and to improve his health by rec
reation. He expects to return to thi*
place after a few weeks absence, and we
hope when he does come he will be re
stored to hi* usual vigor.
—The late rains have occasioned con
siderable increase in the volume of water
flowing into the rivers and have caused

point. This fact is hailed very joyfully by
lumbermen, among whom Is our honored
citixen, John Ardell, Jr. It exhibits, 100,
in a wonderful measure tho constant and
watchful rare of a superintending Provi
dence, which is even too beneficent in iU
workings. While in the fall it was but
natural to think that the continued drouth
would not only materially injiye business
hut also check the sprouting of ••arty sown
wheat, the recent precipitation* of mois
ture and grateful warmth have remedied
all injury that was bccashmed from that
cause, while doubtless some nll-otlt< ieni
cause for it Is retained in the councils of

—Amid the din and cla*h of contending
faction*, and the general upheaval of the
great political parties consequent upon the
near approach of an important national
election, It is gratifying and cheering to
kuow that at least one man in the coaalry
will look upon the mighty contest with
the philosophic unconcern which charaoter
iaed the altitude of the old woman as she
watched the conflict between her husband
and the bonr. Our fellow townsman, Mr.
H. O. Hoffer, has announced hi* entire and

1 IN JAM, AND OUT. — Most ot the people
of our county know w hat it i* to he out of
Jail, but there are not many wild have
any acquaintance with Jifc inide the
gloomy wall* and behind the strong bar*.
We, however, had a quarter of an hour'*
experience in tho latter situation one day
la*t week, in tiie mauiinotli stone structure
known u* Fort Spuiigh-r ou top of the hill,
and found, notwithstanding sundry ac
count* to the contrary, that it i* not *ueh a
terrible place after all. Nevertheless, we
would advise people to keep out of it if
possible. In all, Fort Hpangler contain*
about twenty cells, two only of which are
for female*, which would indicate that tho
men of this county are nine or ten time*
more in need of such correction than the
women. The proportion represented by
the inmates of the jail at present i* even
greater than that—(l to 0. The cells are
all supplied with barred iron doors, but
th*e arc only closed on the inmates at
night, and, if peacefully disposed, they are
given the freedom of the hall* during the
day. But hack of these cell* oil the first
floor—one on either side of the hall—are
two place* culled dungeons. Ma*sive iron
doors shut to on the hapless occupant of
these cells, leaving him in the blackness of
Inrkne*#. Only one of them, however, is
i -hut off entirely from the light, and a ■mall
j window shed* a ray of light in the one on
j the left. Tho necessity which compels the
maintenance of such it place is to be re
| gretted, hut it is seldom if ever that one
| become* so depraved as to merit inearcera
j lion in the dungeon. All the cells are pro
j Titled with water and heat, and the jail i*
j comfortably warm throughout in the
| severest of weather. The cell* and hall*
j are light and almost cheerful, and with the 1
aid of the three substantial meals each dav j
I that are given the prisoners, they can, if
1 *0 disposed, improve the time by the |-ru
al of hooks and pajers, which are alway*
provided. In addition to bountiful meals,
they are given coffee twice each day. We
arc uUo informed that they can, at their
pleasure, enjoy the freedom of the large
j yard surrounded by the high wail to the
i rear of the jail.
There are at present only ix prisoners
! in the jail, HII of whom are placed there
| for trivial offense*. This i* the smallest
| number that have been there since Mr.
Spnngler look possession. We are gind
that such a secure and pleasant place has
been provided for the evil-doers of our
county, but would rejoice to see moral* so
much improve a* to render such an insti- *
tution a* a jail an unnecessary incum
Leap Year Law.—The Supreme Court
{ "f Indiana ha* afforded a principle in r<f-
I spect to the computation of time which i*
likely to prove ~f serious trouble to bank
ers and others. It Is that the 2b and 29 of
February are to be computed a* one day.
The question become* of |tocia! import
ance now that leap year (IKHOi is with 11*.
To illustrate, suppose that a note be •
drawn on the 28th of February, A. D.,
1880. at one day after date. If the 28th
and 29th be counted a one day,
note would mature on the 4th day of
March, but otherwise on the third. If on
the third,Yloarly protest on the 4th would
not hold the endorser*. Vice versa, if the
rule of computation f* to count separately
the 2Mb and 29th of February, the protest
on the 4th would be of no avail.
The question in Indiana was suggested
by the fact of there being ten days pre
vious service of pri>ce- necessary for judg
ment. And the cause having Iteen l>egun
in the last leap year. I*7l the process was
not served in lime, if the 28th and 29th
days of February were to be computed as
one day. ( And the court held that they
must be so counted. VhtHptKurg Journal.
Inspection.—ln speaking of tho quar
terly inspection of company F., Fifth Beg.
iment, National Guard, which took place
at i'hilipsburg on Tucsdfy evening ot last
week, the Journal state that Captain Har
ry Simier received high praise from Col
onel Buri hfield because of the excellent
condition in which the company was4ound.
The inspection revealed the fact that the
arms, accoutrements, Ac., of Company K
are superior to those of any company yet
visited. Previous to the inspection an 1
election took place to supply the vacancy
caused by tb* resignation of Sorond Lieu
tenant Myers. Afr. Jeff. 8. Jones was
the successful candidate, and if his exami
nation, which will be held before the
Military Board in this place to-morrow,
prove# satisfactory, he will immediately j
enter upon his duties.
His HIWIIT HUD CUT Orr.—A most
unfortunate accident occurred to Dr. J M.
Stewart, of Hnow Shoe, on Friday last,
lie was engaged at the time in his shingle
mill in sawing the lathe with which to
hind the shingle#. By some means for
which he cannot himself exactly account,
his right hand came in contact with the
■aw entirely separating the fingers from It. j
Dr. Dobbin#, of this place, was summoned,
and departed on the evening train for Snow ;
Shoe to attend hi* patient. He remained 1
there until the afternoon train to this
place on Saturday, giving his Buffering pa
tient the benefit of hi* skill. It was found
necessary to amputate Ir. Stewart's hand
across tho palm. At last accounts Dr.

TO "ITncln TOM'* Cabin," A* repronented
by Kial and Hra|tnr'. celehratd troupe,
wa* a laughable after-piece ON Sunday
J night, which introduced the blood-hound,
1 the pur.ued and punuer* and neveral more
|of the rfranwti * /I;*'UIIC. That excellent
I colored clergyman, Be v. .fame* Palmer,
with good reason, gave hi. congregation a
few wie words of counsel in regard IU at
tending theatrical exhibition, to tbo neg
lect of religion* duties. Thi* INCENSED
some members of the aforesaid troupe who
were listening HI this divine, and they IM
mediately left the church IN a rather in
-1 suiting manner. Not sali.fled with thi*
they waited for M R. Pnliuer on the street,
ut the conclusion of the service, determin
ed to make the gentleman retract hi*
word*. The inemlier* of the congregation,
, however, conducted him HOME in safety.
A* soon a* practicable, Kev. Palmer en
j lercd a complaint against tbe aforesaid of
fender* for disturbing a religion* meeting
and indulging in profane language, and
they were bound over for appearance be
j fore the justice on Monday morning. Tbe
major portion of the troupe went on to
Clearfield to fill an engagement at that
place in the evening, w hile the manager*
promptly appeared at the proper time.
Lou; and profuse were the testimonies
1 given an either side, but the troupe
weie found guilty of the offense* charged
and were fined f Ift.fiO, When traveling
troupe* sojourn over Sunday in a place
where the public sentiment on moral ques
tions i* so healthy a* it is here, they should
reniemiaT that they attend church only to
hear of their fault* and to profit by—not
flmk fault with—whut they hear.
— According to notice, a public meeting of
the Patron* of Husbandry, was held in
the M. K. church at Centre llall, Saturday

PxasiKo AWAY.—One by one ihe rose*
wither and die ; one hy one old thing, pass
away and new one* take their place. The J
old flight of one hundred and fifty, or
more, steps, leading from Water street up
the "hill of science" to the Hellefonte
Academy at the top, which, in youthful
days, many of our acquaintance used to
climb— their bosom* heaving with ainhi
tiou* thought* of future education and
glory — have been, during the past few I
jear, slowly crumbling away, until now
but half a flight of broken step* remain at
the top of the hill. Would it not be bet
ter to have left them there to suggest to
the preeent generation what a hard, steep,
straight road all must climb to attain true
grcatnes* and glory 1
