The Sew School House for this borough
is now being pushed rapidly along. It is
sin improvement we are glad to see, and one
that was badly needed.
p(To be Pitied. Tho young man who
stands at tho church door trying to sum
mon up courage to ask some young lady
for tho privilege of accompanying her home,
and the young loafer who stands around in
the way to see who has the sense to seek
such company. The one is to bo pitied
for his lack of courage, and the other for
his lack of sense. They are both nuisances,
however, which should be abated, Can't
it be done ?
V"A New Society called tho Junior Order
ofAmericau Mechanics, has been formed in
this borough. Wo learn that tho Knights of
Pythias are also trying to establish a lodge
Wo really think there are plenty of se
cret societies hero now, but belicvo a socie
ty of " Hod Fellows," with sufficient
brick-layers to keep them well employed,
would bo of service to the borough. Will
not some enterprising citizen try to estab
lish such an Association?
The Paper so long known as tho York
County Star, came to us last week in an
entire new dress, and with its heading
changed to The Wrightioille Star. Our
friends' selection of type does credit to their
taste, and wo hope their improved appear
anco will bring them many new subscribers.
V'lJailroads. Wo havo received a copy of
tftte Auditor General's report on railroads
and canals, for which thanks aro duo Sena
tor C. J. T. Mclnlire. Although some very
interesting facts are therein recorded, it
would bo still more interesting if wo could
see some report regarding tho Duncannon
Bloomlicld & Broad Top Road. By the
way has any ono heard anything recently
in regard to. the health of the commission
ers for that enterpiso? Any information in
regard to them will be gladly received by
tho friends of that road.
The Difficulties in Dickinson College, at
Carlisle, Pa., havo been satisfactorily ad
justed. Tho order of suspension has boon
recalled, and the members of the sophomore
and junior classes present have resumed
their college duties. As they entered tho
chapel Wednesday morning they were en
thusiastically received. Tho absentees will
return to examination on Juno 0, with their
Sudden Death. On Monday afternoon
last, Catharine Stough, wife of Charles
Stough, residing in West Philadelphia St.,
was suddenly attacked with paralysis, and
almost im mediately died. Sho was engag
ed in her domestic duties, in apparently
good health, during tho day, until some
time in tho afternoon, when she was, taken
ill and soon afterwards died. York Pren..
A Most Singular accident and narrow es
capo occurred in Ridgbury township, Brad
ford county, during tho thunder storm on
Tuesday evening of last week. Ap Michad
Conkliu, of that township, was driving his
team from tho tlold where ho had been at
work the lightning struck tho horses kill
ing them instantly. Mr. C. was rendered
unconscious by tho stroke, but recovered
after a short time. lie naturally feols that
ho had a very close call. Eeporter.
Citizens of Cambria county want an in
junction to restrain their county commis
sioners from erecting a new jail.
Dentil From Lockjaw. Tho remains of
Mr. John Blackburn, whoso death resulted
from rather singular circumstances, were
interred last Sunday, at Trenton, N. J.
Some ten days ago ho accidentally chopped
off the joint of his finger with an axe while
in tho act of splitting some wood. On im
mediately replacing tho disjointed member,
it clung fast to its proper place, the coagu
lated blood holding it attached. Having
tied it up in apiece of linen, ho resumed
his work, and foolishly imagined that na
ture would soon cfl'eet a perfect cure. To
ward tho close of last week ho felt a pain
in his under jaw, and a physician being con
sulted, the symptoms were pronounced very
I dangerous. His finger had become more
swollen, and inlhimation had set in, making
further amputation neccessary. His condi
tion became gradually worse, and ho died
on Friday night.
Military. The following is a copy of a
law passed at the last session of the Legis
lature and may bo of interest to our read
ers :
" Each and every person not now, or who
shall not hereafter become a member of
some military organization shall pay to tho
collector of taxes in tho city, county, bor
ough, or township in which he shall reside,
the sum of iifty cents annually, the pay
ment of which sum shall exempt him from
liability to perform military service except
under orders to prevent or repel invasion,
or to suppress insurrection, tumult, or riot ;
the proceeds to be devoted to sustaining
volunteer military organizations; and in
any county in which there shall bo no vol
unteer military organizations, tho money
received into tho brigade fund, aforesaid,
shall be paid by the county, at the closo of
each year, to tho school board of tho sev
eral school districts in said county, in pro
portion to the number of taxable inhabi
tants in said district, to be used for school
Coal. The Gettysburg Compiler says wo
havo long believed that stono coal would
some day be found in Adams county, and
the fact may not bo far from verification.
It is said that a New York party has leased
tho farm of Mr. John Collins, on Opossum
creek, Bendersvllle, and that in the slut ft
now being sunk they are receiving addition
al encouragement day after day. Prospect
ing is also going forward near Mr. Henry
Eppleman'smill, whero a small vein of gen
uino coal has been found.
V Official Visit. Tho commissioners of
Perry county, accompanied bv tho direc
tors of tho poor, visited Dauphin county
last Thursday for the purpose of inspecting
the alms houso of that county, preparatory
to commencing operations on tho new poor
house for Perry. In erecting tho new build
ing, they propose to profit by tho experi
ence of our neighbors.
C2T" A man in Montanna "squatted" on
another man's land, and built a shanty,
and declined an invitation to "git." So a
party went to tho shanty when the family
were asleep, and lifted tho building on a
raft without waking any one, and set it
afloat. Tho next morning tho old man
stepped out doors, and did his chores and
his swearing somo miles down stream.
