Remember that in dressing for photo
graphs it is useful to know that dark brown,

without gloss, will make a rich drab color.
Silks of tho samo color will tako consider

dark drab, scarlet cherry, dark orange,
crimson, and slato will take a very rich
drab color. Violet, blue, purple, pink, and

Diiiieaiinon Affairs. Sinco May last, our
town has received frequent visits from
Pittsburg and New York detectives no
ono knowing the object of their visits.
Of course all havo become curious to learn
it. The following will explain :
Somo two weeks ago, Chief of Police, of
Pittsburg, w rote to a gentleman hero, of
fering a largo reward for information that
would lead to tho arrest of a notorious
character, named Charles Simmons, form
erly a resident of this place. At tho time,
Simmons' whereabouts was not known, but
on Tuesday last it was ascertained that ho
was in Troy, N. Y. Information to that
effect was immediately sent to Pittsbnrg,
when the authorities there telegraphed to
the Troy Police to arrest him. The Troy
Police telegraphed back that ho had left
there for Duncannon. Chief of Police of
Pittsburg then telegraphed to Mr. John
A. Shearer, constable of this borough, to ar
rest, and detain Simmons, who, meanwhile,
had arrived hero, and got "wind" of how
matters stood, nd had gone to tho Juniata
Bridge, ono and a half mile west of here,
to tako tho 8.30 p. m. train for Harrisburg.
Mr. Shearer, accompanied by Messrs. Goo.
Caswell and Jacob Whitmiro proceeded to
that place, (Bridge,) and found their man
in the back yard awaiting tho train. They
arrested him without much trouble, but on
taking him to tho waiting-room, he espied
an open door, for which he suddenly start
ed, dragging Shearer with him to tho rail
road, where a terrible scuffle ensued, in
which he got tho better of tho officer, and
would havo then escaped, only for Caswell,
who came to the rescue. They again col
lared him, and proceeded to tho buggy in
which they had came, but while Whitmiro
was untying tho horse, and Caswell on tho
opposite sido of tho buggy, he, with a sud.
don bound, escaped, and turning a corner
ran up tho railroad, closely pursued by the
trio, and whon nearly recaptured leaped
a palo fence, and disappeared in a cornfield,
where he kept concealed until tho search
was given up, when ho broke tho lock
of a skiff and crossed tho river, mak
ing good his escapo for tho present.
I am not aware of tho nature of tho of
fence committed by Simmons, bnt judging
from efforts mado to arrest him they must
bo serious. W. II. W.

Siiekmansdale, Pa., Aug. 20, 1870.
Mr. Editor On Saturday, the 0th ult,
the American Mechanics, of Shermansdalo
Council No. 180, turned out in regalia, on
the occasion of a Biblo presentation, by tho
ladies of Shermansdalo, and friends of the
order. Quito a crowd gathered at tho
"Dale," and when the hour for tho pres
entation came, as many as could get in the
ball crowded in. A large, beautiful Bible,
bearing in guilt letters tho inscription,
" Presented to Shermansdalo "Council No.
180 O. U. A. M., by tho ladies of Sher
mansdalo and vicinity," was then present
ed to tho council, and next, a now set of
chairs and a rug. A vote of thanks was
then tendered to tho ladies by tho council,
after which Mr. Thomas Milliken, of Dun
cannon, delivered an address ; in the course
of which ho spoko of tho origin of tho or
der, twenty-iive years ago, which now num
bers nearly 800 councils in Pennsylvania
alone ; and is rapidly spreading throughout
other States. Mr. Jacob Billow next ad
dressed tho audience, and as there is so
much prejudice in some places against se
cret associations, he dared any ono to offer
any complaint against tho order that they
had any reason to make on account of any
injury or damago that they, or any body
else, ever sustained from this or any other
secret society that carries the word of God
with their banner ; but so far, no one has
responded, and I am convinced that they
are prejudiced without a cause. Tho order
is gaining ground here, and I wish them
sueces. A Spkctatou.

There are quite a number of now houses
being built in this flourishing village, this
season. The gontloman who laid out a
number of lots on tho Clark farm, somo 00
or more, have sold between 40 and 00 some
C2 perhaps, and no doubt the whole will
ultimately bo taken into the borough. Tho
school Directors of Pcnn Township have
purchased 6 lots at tho extreme upper and
on the north western corner and have con
tracted with J. R. Wcnsel to build a now
school house 28 by 32 which is to be finish
ed by tho 22d of October, the mason work is
done, lumber is all on tho ground and the
carpenters are at work busily. Mr. Win.

A Devilish Plot.
Tho Lancaster JuteHiywrr cays : On
Monday night hict n most devilish scheme
was attempted on the Pennsylvania rail
road at ftaby's Curve, about ono mile
west of the Gap Station, to throw the (Jin"
cinnatti Kxprc.s train off the track!
Tho object, it is supposed, was to rob the
passengers on (lie. train or tho express
car. This curve l very short, and the
c-.iiliankiiicnt h pre ay Ii:yh, rendering it
a dangerous portion of the road, and
should tho attempt have proven success
ful, no ono can toll v.hat iniylit have been
the loss of -life or how terrible an acci
dent would iiavo happened. It appears
that a tie was yhnA across the track, but
fortunately not fastened tightly thereto.
The Cincinnati Express train being con
si'lerably behind time, the freight train:)
received orders to proceed ahead to Lea
niau Place station. O.n: of the freight
trains struck tho 'u: carrying it along
so.'n.i distance nnt-il tho cn;.v!uo was s.t..)
ped and the tie removed, when it was ta
ken a Iter wards to .Leainan l'iace. Jt is
thought that tho' parlies in putting down
the tie were frightened by the approach
of the freight train, so that they did not
stop long enough to fasten it to tho rails.
