residing in Centre township, while scapcing
bees was badly stung around the head, caus

Fine Strawberries. We had last week,
some of the finest strawberries we ever saw.
They were received from Mr. Samuel Itico,
of this borough, who is hard to beat in rais
ing strawberries and grapes. He furnishes
plants of all the choicest varieties of these
vinos, so that all who are not already provi
ded, can procure them.
Accident. On last Tuesday Morning a
freight train was wrecked near Wilmoro
station, and a brakeman named Hunter in
stantly killed, and a man named Brown,
wha it is supposed was stealing his passago
on the train, was severely injured ; he had
been discharged from, the county alms-house
but a short time Bruce.
A Monse Storj. The Altoona Tribune
ays : One or more till robbers havo been
victimizing Harry Bell, East side, for some
time past. The last haul attracted atten
tion, from the fact that a $3 bill was miss
ing. By "laying" for the depredators, Mr.
B, discovered that they inhabited a niche
ia tl'rn wall, near the drawer, and were nono
other than a family of mice. From their
nest was extracted tho $5 bill and currency
uflieient to ran up their cash in hand to
about. $14. The police have made no ar
rests to date.
Dedication On Sntwday afternoon last,
tho order of American Mechanics,, who
have been fitting up a fine room iuthe bank
building, .dedicated their new hall (with, ap
propriate ceremonies. The. heavy rains of
the preceding days,, hid interfered with
'travel to such an extent as to prevent Inany
from coming who would otherwise proba
bly have been present, and- the afternoon
being showery interfered somewhat with
the pleasure of those who. did. join-in- the
parade. The Newport band enlivenodthe occasion
. with soma excellent, music ; .thereby grati
fying not only, the, members of the order,
but all who had the opportunity of hoaring

fAlmost a Flood. A terrible rain has
again visited this county. On Tuesday
evening last, a severe thunder shower, ac
companied in soroo sections of the connty
by hail, did considerable damage to tho
crops. In Raccoon Valley oats and wheat
were badly injured by the rain and hail.
Tho worst rain,howcver, came about noon
on Thursday, when we had as severe a
shower as we ever saw. In an incredible
short time tho small streams were swollen
so that they swept everything before them.
Between this borough and Duncannon tho
road was nearly impassable, owing to inju
ries to bridges nearly all of them having
the planks carried away.
Mill dams and other property was also
damaged to. a considerable amount. The
dam belonging to the saw-mills of Henry
Aylo and J. B. Owen were torn out ; and
Stone's mill, near Dclville, was nearly de
molished, the wheels being torn out and
left in the meadow. The Littlo Buffalo,
and Sherman's Creek roso to an alarming
height, but we have yet had no report of
damages done along thxte streams.
In this vicinity tho damago to- crops has
been very great ; all tho grain fields being
washed and flooded.
It is a little singular that tho tcrriblo
rain and freshet of last summer, which oc
curred on Iho 4th of Juno was preceded on
tho 1st inst., by a storm similar to tho one
of last Tuesday night, which is now fol
lowed by a destructive stoim similar to tho
one of the 4th of last June.'""
Justice's Court. On Saturday last a
case of assault was tried before John C. Mc
Ginnis, Esq., and six jurors, in Centre School
house, in Buffalo township. The Jury
found the defendant not guilty, but direct
ed that he should pay all tho costs. The
Commonwealth was represented by Lewis
Potter, Esq., of Bloomfield, and the de
fendant by S. P. Auchmuty, Esq., of Mil
Icrsburg, Dauphin county. A largo crowd
was present to hear the trial.
This difficulty arose out of a misappre
hension in regard to the law in reference to
cattlo trespassing on unincloscd woodland.
The prosecutrix, Mary Albright sent her
littlo daughter to drive her cows to the
Half Fall mountain, where she owned un
incloscd woodland. The defendant, Abra
ham Good, owned uninclosed woodland ad
joining that of the prosecutrix. He held
that her cows had no right to trespass on
his woodland, and accordingly stoned the
cows back along the public road, to a point
near tho house of tho prosecutrix, and
frightened tho little girl very much.
A case is reported in 5th Smith, in which
the Supremo Court of Pcnn'a decided that
no trespass can be committed by cattle on
uninclosed ground. If therefore the cattle
of the prosecutrix had strayed on defend
ant's uninclosed ground, it would not have
boon in violation of any law.
Drowned. Mr. William Kchl, who keeps
a lager beer saloon, fct the corner of North
and Filbort streets, having last nigf?t missed
his son, a boy but six years old, made in
formation of the fact to officer Moses Fleck,
who at once proceeded to search for the
missing child. About ten o'clock this
morning, Mr. Graham found tho body of
the boy Kehl, at the bottom of the canal,
at Mr. Tunis, coal yard, about fifty yards
from the pivot bridge crossing to the fur
n ace at the foot of North street. The lad
had fallen into the canal sometime yester
day, but how, or from what cause, it is im
possible to determine, as no one appears to
have witnessed the accident. Upon tho
discovery of tho body, Coroner James Pot
ter was notified, who repaired to tho spot
and summoned a jury. Ilarrisburg Topic

Mahkelville, Pa., Juno 8, 1870.
Mr. Editor It was my privilege to visit
the Juniata Valley Normal School, Millers
town, Pa., on Friday eve., May 27, this be
ing the time of celebrating the third anni
versary of the Normal Echo Literary Socie
ty. At 7$ p. m., the procession entered the
hall. First camo the teachers of the school ;
next the officers and repreientatives of the
society, followed by tho members and pu
pils. The members were readily distin
guished by their badges of reef, white and
blue, and a glittering white fitar, emblem
atic of tho society. Notwithstanding the
unfavorable state of the weather, lon be
fore tho time for opening, the streets load
ing to the building were a moving pano
rama of umbrellas. The anniversary exer
cises were held in the new school hall, esti
mated to comfortably seat COO persons.
Tho room was well lighted with gasolino
lamps and the entire arrangement reflected
credit upon those interested. Tho Millers
town Zouave Band discoursed music at in
tervals during tho exercises of tho whole
evening. This band, we afterward learned,
play for all tho public occasions of the
town, free of charge. The President's ga
vel called to order, when the first exercise
was announced, music by the Society Glee
Club, led by Mr. S. B. Fahncstock. The
exercises of the evening were enlivened by
the club alternating with the Jjand. This
was followed by the President's salutatory,
"Our History," George W. Mfcdcr giving
tho history of the early foundation of the
society; tho opposition it met with and the
precedent for anniversaries. The speaker
was loudly applauded. An oration, " The
World Moves," E. G. Shoafer. This was
an able production and well delivered. An
essay,. "Discipline," Miss Ellio Thompson,
which was elegant in sentiment and forci
bly read. A recitation " Angels of Buo
na Vista," Maggio Lauvcr, well rendered,
showing careful elocutionary training.
Next a debate. "Resolved, that foreign em
igration to America should bo encouraged."
The nflirniativo was sustained by Messrs.
J. R. Runyan and F. M. Rcedcr. Tho
negative by Messrs. W. A. Morrison and
Jos. E. Smiley. Tho discussion was able
and logical. The decision was given in fa
vor of the affirmative. A rendition by tho
boys " Little Jack Horner for grown peo
ple," was well given. A selection "No
Sect in Heaven," Myra E. Keely, was ren
dered in a clear, forcible and elegant man
ner. W e have seldom heard an elocution
ist who with loss seeming effort could be so
distinctly understood. Graceful in her
bearing and rich in the intonations of her
voice, Miss K's effort was the master
performance of tho evening. An original
poem" Change" S. B. Fahnestock, was
a happy effort, containing a sensible hit on
Woman's Rights. Next was tho "Juniata
Miscellany," read by O. P. Wright, editor,
containing the usual variety of humorous
and sentimental pieces contributed by the
members. The roll was then called, when
the members responded with beautiful and
appropriate sentiments. The meeting then
adjourned, each one wo think, going away
fully satisfied with the entire proceedings;
The society as well as tho school with
which it is inseparately connected, have our
best wishes for their success. M. M. A.
