Curious Eirtr. Mrs. Gallatin of this
borough, last week broke a largo egg in
which was found another perfect in every
respect, the inner bIioII being as strong as
usual and the contents about tho same in
quantity as though not surrounded in that
singular manner. The outer egg had also
tho ordinary amount of white and yolk.
Ilcury Ituln. In portions of Lancaster

No Shad. The case of the Commonwealth
vs. tho Penn'a Cannl Company is well
known as tho " Susquehanna Shad case."
In the Dauphin court it was decided that
under tho then existing laws tho company
could not be compelled to alter its dams
for tho passage of fish, and this judgement
has been affirmed by the Supremo Court.
The fish steps made in tho Columbia dam
will bo permitted to remain as they now are
by which a stray shad may possibly ascend ;
but catching shad in "tho Blue Juniata"
is evidently played out.
5Jot Badly Hurt. We are glad to inform
the friends of Mr. Irviu Soudcrs that he is
not dead, as was reported by some. Tho
particulars of the accident with which he
met at the Shormansdalo Camp-meeting, so
far as we can learn, areas follows : lie was
returning from Camp on Monday night in
a spring wagon, in company with some
friends, and while, ascending a steep hill, a
suddeu start of the horse, or a jar of, the
wagon, caused tho seat to tilt up, and ho
and a young lady were precipitated to tho
ground, ho falling on his shoulder, and
breaking tho clavicle or collar-bone. The
.young lady was also hurt, but wc believe
Bitten by a Snake A few nights ago a
child -daughter of Rev. J. A. McGill, of
Tuscarora Valley feeling thirsty went
down stairs to get a drink. Tho water
being out on the porch the child went out
there and drank. On closing tho outsido
door on her return she noticed that it did
not close with its usual freedom. SI10 also
folt smnathiiig about her foot. After get-
vmg to oca one aiiKio paineil her so much
that she cried. Tho father examined her

and a good deal of swelling. Thinkinrr
that the hurt was received at tho door, and
conjecturing tho cause, he immediately
went down stairs to the outsido door, under
which ho found a large copperhead snake.
Mr. McGill put his lips to tho wound and
sucked tho poison out, and thereby in all
probability saved the life of his child. The
child, wo have been informed is getting
vi Juniata Sentinel.
A Feminine Fight came olf in tho cars
of tho Peiiii.sylv.iuia railroad, at H.vrris
burg, on last Wednesday morning, just as
the Fast-Lino was leaving that depot. A
young woniau who had been occupying a
scat, loft the cars for refreshment and re
turned to find it oucnpiod by a woman
and a little girl. The woman refused to
relinquish the scat, at tho request of tho
former occupant, who at onco proceeded to
dispoKH'M her by force. Clothing suilbred
somewhat, and chignons were below par in
less timo than it takes to tell it, whon, a
gentleman sitting opposite interfered,
and slopped the fight, offering his seat.
The young woman would, however, take
uuue except the one which she formerly
had, aud the woman and littlo girl, by
tho advice of the passengers, took an
other wwit, leaving the amiable young
woman in possession of the coveted place.

bKilkd by Lightning. On last Thursday
uuuu, uuring ine prevaienco of a severe
thunder storm, two organ grinders who had
been in our borough in tho morning, had
seated themselves under a tree in Adam
Smyser's orchard in West Manchester
township, probably to secure themselves
from the falling rain. Whilo in that posi
tion the lightning struck the tree pealing
oil' a portion of the bark, killing one of tho
men instantly and injuring the other to
such an extent that it was thought he
could not survive. They had with them
two organs and a small monkey under the
tree at the same time. Neither the monkey
nor the organs received any injury. An in
quest was held over the body of the deceas
ed organ grinder by Esquire John A. Metzel
of tho borough, and a verdict rendered in
accordance with the above facts. Both of
tho men were taken in the afternoon, to
the Alms House, tho 0110 for interment and
the other to receivo medical attendance.
The sum of $15 78 was found upon the
person of the deceased. On examination
of the body of the deceased, by tho inquest
it was found that one of tho limbs of the
tree, under which was sitting at tho timo
of tho electric stroke, had been photograph
ed by tho lightning upon his left bosom.
This is both curious and remarkable and
may lead to developcmcnts in science not
heretofore known. Tho deceased was eat
ing an applo, at the time tho bolt fell and
his open knife was found lyinjr alonir side
of him after his death. Tho survivor vm
unconscious when taken to tho Alms House
and we havo not since heard of his condi
tion. Both were foreigners n.ml utvni,m,.a

a small child belonging to William Zinn
residing on Chinch street, this borough, be
came 'est less m bed and in rollin" from
side to sido it fell from tho window, which
had carelessly been left open. Mrs. Zinn
hearing tho cry of her littlo ono from the
outsido of her bedroom, alarmed her hus
band. , They hastened down to tho yard
expecting to find their child in tho last
agonies of death, but were surprised to find
110 child there. They looked up toward
tho window from which she had fallen
and there discovered the missing one sus
pended a few feet below the sill of the win
dow, on a nail. The father soon hastened
tho rescue, and relieved tho child from its
perilous position. The child sustained no
injuries whatever. Sunbury Ouard.

For Tlte Bloomfield Times.
Mr. Editor : Sir As an item of import
ance, I wisli to state for the Times that the
Rev. Mr. Caruthers, (Presiding Elder) in
his sermon last Sunday week, at the Elliotts
burg Camp-meeting, stated before an audi
ence of about 2,000, that the Catholic and
French journals justify the present war
against Prussia, because the Prussians are
a Protestant Nation, and predicted that t he
Pope as the "Man of Sin and Sou of Per
dition" would now doubtless make a strong
effort to conquer and destroy all Protest
ants and Heretics.
This is the same prediction that was
made by Professor Smolnikar, ten years
years ago, and since the Dogma of Infalli
bility has been proclaimed by the Pope,
Protestants are beginning to apprehend its
truth. An Observer.
