4, Citt Directory. Mr. Joseph Wiggins,
compiler of the new directory for Oil Creek,
French Creek and Allegheny Valley, is now
delivering the work to subscribers. It Is a
handsome volume of 250 pages, and affords
a full and reliable directory of the resident
population of Meadville, Franklin, Oil City,
VenangoCity, Petroleum Centre, Titusville,
Corry. Jamestown, N. V., Warren, Pa ,
Kittening, Kreeport, Sbarpsburg, and Etna
together with historical notices of each place,
and a description of the manufactures, edu
cational institutions, oburcbes, placet of In.
teres! and business sources.
The work was printed and bound at the
Republican office, Meadville, and presents a
floe typography. The compilation ot tbe
work has involved a heavy expense to the
publisher, but it is hit intention to continue
it from year to year, with sucb addition
as may be necessary to make It a complete
and popular directory. It Is by all odds
tbe best publication of tbe kind over issued
for tbe region it embraces, and should receive
a liberal encouragement from tho business
community. TUusville Herald.
Tbey have a she-devil for a school tuarm
la La Crosse,' Wisconsin. A little girl was
guilty of the unpardonable sin of taking a
bite from an apple during study hours. This

their apples, realizing about a dozen, which
sbe compelled the little girl to eat, until
he vomited lrotn her oter loaded stomach'

An old man, whose sight was defective
and who bad to use glasses, was reading a

When the cart reached tbe tunnel tbe quick
diBsppearaoce of the light caused bim to
look up. Taking off bit speclaolet and
wiping them, be replaced them and tried to
read. Perceiving that all was still dark,
be dropped both paper and spectacles, ex
claiming, in a loud voice, "My God, I'm
blind, I'm blind!" Tbia aroused tbepas-
songers, and It was a long time before be
could be convinced what was the matter.
On coming again to the light he thanked
God fervently for his sight.
The storm which has prevailed in the east
since Saturday night is said to bo the severest
which has visitod that part of I be country
since 1850. The damugo has been very
great. Bridges bnve been swept away
bouses destroyed, and communication is in
terrupted. It is thought that It will require
two weeks to repair the damages ou the
Erie Canal alone. Tho accounts received
convey some idea of its extent, but we fear
tbe worst is yot to come. .

but we fancy that he bas been sent to look
after tbe who'e Dominican Republic with a
view to Informing Gen. Grant whether It
will be worth while to annex it. For sucb
a duty Babcock is an excellent man, shrewd,
sensible, and with bis eyes always open."

A writer describing Japanese cemeteries,
bears testimony to tbe affection generally
tbown for tbe dead, by tbe erection of me

tbe cemetery at Hlogo, quite a number of

tbape, staading upright in a stone socket,
and sculptured to represent the human
figure, or with a simple Inscription. More
frequently the ttonet are substantial slabs
dscorated with an Image of Budba in relief.

fidelity to tbe memory of the dead is a na
tional characteristic Even where stones
are crumbling with age, true human hearts
survive to bring fresh flowers as a perpetual
