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 here. 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 classes. 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 purposes." 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. Masonic Tho Masonic Fraternity of Carlisle have a procession to-day, as part of tho ceremonies towards dedicating a new hall. Quito a number from this borough have gone over to bo present on tho occa sion. A Protection Against The Evils of Intem perance. Tho following bill passed by our late Legislators at Harrisburg, will protect de serted wives and bring erring and care less husbands to their senses : Section 1. That whensoever any hus band, from drunkenness, profligacy or other cause whatsoever, shall for two sua cessivo years desert Lis wife or neglect or refuse to five with her and provide fu ller, she shall as to every species and de scription of property, whether real, per sonal or mixed, owned by and belonging to her, have all tho rights and privileges of a femuie solo and unmarried. Section 2. That it shall bo lawful for any married woman, as aforesaid, to stto in her own name upon all sucli contracts as aforesaid, heretofore made or to be made, and to sue iu her own name her husband to recover the possession of her real estate, or the value thereof, as if she were solo and unmarried. ft Don't think booauso snuffs and strong or poisonous solut ions will not cure Catarrh, that you, cannot bo cured. The proprietor of Dr.. Sage's Catarrh, llomedy offers $500 reward for a case of Catarrh which ho cannot cure. It costs but fifty cents for a package which prepares one full pint. Sold by druggists, or send sixty cents to Dr. 11. V. Pierco, Buffalo, N. Y., and get it through tho mail. . Church Notices. In tho Presbyterian Church prayer meet, ing on Wednesday evening.

Tho horso began to cry and the wagon bled freely at the nose, but other wise, the street is doing well. No insurance.
