A day or two since wo noticed the elopen
mcotol a young couplo from Pioneer, their
wbetenbouts at that time being unknown,
trnt wa havo sinco Uarued they sought
roTugo on "tho shores of Chatatitjua Lake,
and during tiioir absence sought and obtain
el tliesarvicos of a micister, and were duly
made man an 1 wife. It having been ru
mored among tbelr friends at home that
they would return last evening, Pioneer
poured outjts enthusiasm without stint, and
a cir-iial greeting was theirs at the depot
upon the arrival of the train at that place.
The locomotive bearing this precious burden
back to the place where all was uproar over
their sudden disappearance, snorted loudly
iind'-r llio task, and rnunlteeted as much de
light and anxiety, seemingly, as did the
friends who bad gathered together to bid
them welcome. As they alighted upon tho
pUtfurm, their appearance called forth the
ct.-ors oi the throng, not even excelled by
the t.'tr.usias:n of. the ' people along the
rout., taken, by President Grant and the
editor of the Corry Luily litada a few days
sine-.-, through this section of Pennsylvania.

And miDe looked pizen into hern.

But alas for my dreme of wedded llisl

Uxpcnisuadlb Cwmks. There are a
claES of offences against which it is not the
custom to provide any safeguards in the
shape ot ptinishmeut. Among these are
the murder of men said to bo adulterers and
seducers, the wholesale slaughter of paasen.
gcrs on railways, and the killing or folks by
tho carelessness of ediuggisis. By common
consent, It would seem, these things may
lake place without exciting tho least ade

There are a number of young men around
town who are afflicted with a discaso known
as "usolessness." An attempt to start an
asylum tor them failed, for two reasons,
viz: No building could bo constiucted large
enough to accommodate the number afflict
ed, and because the d if ease, among the
average of them, was considered incurable.

Tba Clarion jDcmocrui says: "It is now
an established fuct that a railroad will be
built from Driltwood, ou tbe Philadelphia
and Erie, to Mahoning on the Allegheny
Valley railroad, via New P.othlehein, 1'irook
ville and Roynoldsville. The englucrr." are
locating tbo road, and it will soon be all
put under contract. Work has already
becu commenced on tbe eastern end. In
addition to this, we learn from reliable au
thority that a corps of engineers will soon
bo set to work on tbo route from Brookville
west across this county It being the inten
tion of the Pennsylvania Central company
to mttko this a great through route, on ac
count of its low grado and direct line. It
will connect with t'uo Pitlsburgb, Fort
Wayne and Chicago railroad somewhere in
Ohio. Clarion county will soon bo well
provided with railroads."
