additional cent on each additional hundred
or fraction of a hundred.

July 8, St.
The ltoomcrnng. In answer to a corre
spondent who asks " what a Boomerang
is?" wo reply: "It is a weapon made
from hard wood, and is generally about 2
feet long, 2 inches wide, and inch thick.
It is bent to a slight curve, the inch faco
presenting a convex front, which, by ono of
the sides being rounded is brought to a
blunt edge, and it is thrown with this edgo
forward. The peculiarity of the weapon
consists in the manner in which it is used.
Tho person throwing it turns his buck to
the point of at tack, and throws tho weapon
with great force, as though aiming at an
object about thirty yards before him. Tho
action of tho air on tho curved edge and
rounded side makes tho weapon describe a
circle, until it finally hits llio object really
aimed at, which is within one to two hun
dred yards in the rear of the person having
thrown it. It is used with great effect by
the natives of Australia, by whom it was
invented, and it is said that they will kill
biids at a distance of two hundred yards.
A person not used to throwing ono would
be very apt to find it coming back, and hit
ting him on the head so as to badly injure
ail I?oud. Wo have received two coin-
munications complaining loudly about the
new road from Newport to Millerstown.
One of correspondents asserts that "tho
road is positively unsafe afler dark, and
even in day time it is unfit for use. llo
further asserts, with how much truth we
do not know, that Hie road never was need
ed by the public, and was only made for
the accommodation of some few individu
als. We do know that the county was tax
ed for tho purpose of making the road, and
it was supposed that the township in which
it lay would keep it in order, so that the
public could use it, if inclined so to do. If
something is not dono before the August
court, one of our correspondents says he
M ill have the supervitors returned for neg

A Case of Almost Fatal Poisoning. The
Pittston Gazette says : An. attache of the
Gazelle, Mr. S. T. Mufily, formerly of How
ard, Centre county, Pa., has received the
startling intelligence that his two sisters,
a brother and brother-in-law had narrowly
escaped death by poison. Their milk cows
had grazed upon a poisonous shrub known
us the deadly hemlock, which had so even
onied tho milk that it required all tho skill
of a number of physicians to save tho lives
of all who drank of it.
Dr. Sclioejipe's ('use has been decided by
tho Supiemo Court ; that court sustaining
tho veidict against him. There is now no
hope for him unless tho Governor should
delay ordering his execution until tho Leg
islature should meet, when they might see
lit to rectify the mistakes of last winter's
Legislation. It is, however, probable that
there is no hope of his oscaping tho mur
A Swindler. A man named W. C. Stairs
has been victimizing tlie newspaper propri
etors and citizens of York, by represent
ing himself as the agent and part proprie
tor of several papers, and taking subscrip
tions therefor. Tho publishers, however,
did not sec the money, nor tho subscribers
their papers. IIo has left that place,
and will probably attempt his swindles in
some other locality.

The Democrats of Philadelphia havo

Our citizens complain about tho side
