Wanted Light. Somo moan thief, a few
lays Hi nee, entered the school house, No. 3.
in Tusciirora township, whicli Ik used as a
)lacc of worship by the United Brethren,
and stole a large hanging lamp belonging
to the congregation.
Old Persons. There are few election dis
tricts in the State which have so large a
proportion of old persons among their vo
ters as there is in this borough. Of the
whole list of voters in lilooinliold borough,
more than one HL'th are over sixty years of
The new Church Edifice erected by the
Reformed Congregation in Newport, will
bo dedicated to the service of tho Triune
od, on Hunday, the 1G7A of January, 1870.
Several eminent ministers are expected to
be present on tho occasion. The public are
respectfully invited to be present.
y The Iterlval. Tho protracted meeting
of tho Presbyterian Church, which at the
timo of issuing our last number, was still in
session, has been closed. The result of the
meeting was very gratifying. Already
twenty-nine persons have been admitted to
membership in that church, and there is a
prospect of still further addition. In this
case, the number of men among tho con
verts is unusually great, they being more
than half of the number.
A scries of meetings are now being held
by the Lutheran congregation in this bor
ough, which wo hope will meet with equal
A spirited revival is also going on in tho
Lutheran Church at Mansville. Sixteen
poisons were forward on Saturday evening
last, seeking forgiveness. God speed the
good work.
Lucky Hunters. Some of the hunters
who go from this co unty to Black log, are
inoro fortunate than those who went from
this borough. Itufus and Henry Potter of
Milford, on a recent visit to Black Log Val
ley, captured five deer. One large buck
they brought home witli them and the oth
ers they disposed of there.
h( Teachers' Institute. During the past
week, Superintendent Korr and tho teach
ers of Perry county have been holding their
annual Convention. Of tho ono hundred
and sixty-eight teachers employed in tho
county, about ono hundred were present.
From what we heard, wo think, as a gen
eral thing, the exercises gave entire satis
faction. If tho gentlemen did not pass the
week pleasantly, it certainly was not be-
causo they were deprived of ladies' society,
for it is not often that in this borough we
have the opportunity of seeing so many
rosy cheeks and bright eyes. We don't
blamo the young mon for being in favor of
"Teachers' Institutes."
Read our UQTertlscmcuts. They are not
o dull and uninteresting as you think them,
and you may oftjn in them stumble over
something to your advantage ; at any rate ;
read the one inserted for AVanamakcr &
Brown, and see if it does not porsuade you
that Oak Ilall is the place where you should
buy your fall suit
Very Unfortunate. Our readers will re
member tho account of an accident which
happened nearly three mouths since, to Mr.
Emanuel Dugan, of Whcatiield township,
wuereoy ins leg was brolcen. jsy some
means the bono got misplaced, and a short
tinio sine, the splints were taken off, when
it was found that the bone had not knit in
tho least, and the fracture had to bo re-sct,
The medical men now fear that it never will
knit together, as such things rarely occur.
Singular Hog Disease. Mr. Robert Neil
son of Centre township, this county, killed
several hogs a few days since, two of which
had to bo thrown away, owing to their hav
jug somo peculiar disease They soemcd as
well before being killed, and were as fat as
the others, but when cleaned all tho fat
meat was of a deep yellow color, and tho
lard had the saino appearance
Nothing just like this has been seon in
this vicinity, and the question now is what
was the matter with them.
ScTcnty Dollars Out. A bout two weeks
since a man named Wells, in tho employ of
Mr. David I. Rice, at Porrysville, was sent
to bank by himtodeposittheabove amount,
He, however, forgot to cofno back, and af
ter waiting somo time for his return, search
was mado for him, when ho was found in
Tuscarora twp., making tracks for the
Tho money was not recovered, as Wells
asserted that he lost it before re a ching the
bank. Justice Wharton committed him to
A Narrow Escape. On tlia morning of
the 22nd ult., two men named Jacobs and
Zeigler crossed one of tho foldings of the
Canodoguinct Creek, in Cumberland Co.,
to do a day's butchering. On their return
the samo evening they found tho creek had
risen considerably, but cono luded to ven
ture tho crossing. They had not proceeded
far before tho horse and carriage began to
move rapidly down the stream. The men
called loudly, hoping to alarm Mr. Wolf a
near resident, but the roaring of the water
was such, that they failed to make Jiim
hear, but succeeded in starting up ijip dogs,
so that they continued barking, and at
tracted the attention of tho family. Mr.
Wolf then wont to their assistance and suc
ceeded in getting both the men safely nto
his boat. During tho excitement of gptr
ting the men out of the parriage the polo
used to push the boat was lost, and tho
only thing left, with which to navigate the
boat was a sausage stuffor, With this
they howover succeeded in reaching tho
shore, bringing the horse and vehicle with
them. It was a fortunate escape and had it
not been for tho prompt aid of Mr. Wolf, both
men and horse would have been drowned.
As it was the horse was nearly exhausted.
Suicide. On tho evening of tho 24th
ult., the wife of William Lidig, a carpet
weaver residing a littlo distance from Mont
gomery's Ferry, on the Bucks Valley road,
committed suicide by hanging herself with
somo carpet chain, to a cherry tree in the
yard. She had just recovered from a fit of
sickness, but for several weeks had shown
some symptoms of insanity, and it was
probably during ono of these fits that tho
deed was committed. She was discovered
about 10 o'clock at night, while tho body
was still warm, but instead of cutting her
down, and trying to restore life, she was al
lowed to hang until tho alarm had brought
some neighbors, and tho coroner was sum
moned. By that timo she was stiff and
cold. The branch to which she attached
the chain was so low that her knees touched
the ground, upon which they firmly rested.
A Change. We call attention to tho
chango which has taken place in tho firm
of Wright & Siddall. Tho firm uow being
Siddall and Markley. Those who have
heretofore dealt with Mr. Siddall will bo
sure to continue their dealings, and those
who have not yet giveu them a call should
take an early opportunity of so doirfg. The
place of business is still at No. 119 Market
street, Philadelphia.
