°trendy° Advertising.
The Massachusetts Legislature has passed a
lacy against the defacement of natural scenery.
This applies to the painting of advertisements
upon rocks, nailing them on boards upon trees
and the general obtrusion of - notices of quack
medicine venders all along the lines of our rail
ways. It is time such a law were in force in
this State. Some of the very finest bits of land-
• are rendered worthless, comparatively, to
the observer by the daubs of paint thrust upon
the sight in or on the most salient point.

Don't forget that your horse or mule suffers
in hot weather while being worked, and that
drivers cannot be too carefuL It will be wise
and considerate to feed with a small bundle of
wet hay, or a edit* of quarts of oats in the
middle of the day; to furnish a little drinking
water as often as is practicable, when not over
hatted, and to throw water upon such parts as
are liable to chide by perspiration or otherwise.

should be considerably less than that usually

Remedy for Cholera.
The New York Journal of amnerce, a paper
which always knows about what it talks, glees
the following remedy far all eases of choleraic
character: Take equal parts tincture of opium,
red pepper, rhubarb, peppermint and camphor,
and mia them for use. In case of diarrlnea,take
a dose of ten to twenty drops in three or tour
teaspoonfuls of water, and adds, "no one who
has this by him, and takes it In time., will ever
have the cholera. Even when no cholera Is an
ticipated, it is an excellent remedy for ordinary
summer complaint." , It is simple and cheap,
and therefore can be obtaiaed by all claws of
An appeal has been entered by the Delaware,
Lackawanna-and Western railroad company
front a settlement recently made by the auditor
general and state treasurer for tax on gross re
ceipts. It seems that this company,in addition
to operating a railroad, does alitrge business in
the mining and sale of oral. The point raised
m the appeal is that the act of February - 23 d,
1863, whicle Imposed a tax of ,Three-fourth of
one per cent. on the gross receipts of railroad
companies, did not impose a tax on the receipts
of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
tailroad company other than that derived ex
elusively from its business as a railroad corn

monwealthctaioithat it Imposed a tax upon
the entire receipts of the company. The
amount involved in this case is about $42,.

Brooklyn, June 27th, 1873. DL
Be Carrfal.
It Is a habit of many persons to thoughtless
ly write their names on blank scraps of paper
and leave them lie carelessly about their office.
This is a dangerous practice and has been at
tended with serious financial difficulties. We
will recite a case: A gentlemen of means in
. the way of practicing penmanship wrote his
name upon a blank slip o' paper, and leaving ft
lie upon his desk it attracted the attention of a
neighbor, who in a joking way filled the apace
above the signature in the form of a promisso
ry note, and a few days afterward presented the
paper with the otter to allow a considerable dis
count if the drawer (as it would appear) would
cash it at that time. The gentleman so requm
tad saw the joke and so recognized it, and the
holder placing it in his pocket departed, and
nothing further was said about it. Subsequent.
ly the holder was suddenly stricken with paraly
sis and died, and his executors finding the note,
and having no knowledge of the joke attached
to it, brought suit and recovered the sum for
which it was drawn (OM 0,) thus proving the
dangerous habit of persons carelessly writing
their names on blank scraps of paper.

A Wonder Vol Natural Curiosity.
The Carbon Don,erat of last week says,
within a stone's throw from the Lehigh & Sus
quehanna depot, at Penn Haven Junction, in
the h miens but unruly wafers of the Lehigh,
lies an immense rock, which is now exposed to
view, and can be easily reached by passengers
or curiosity seekers,in a few minutes* walk from
the depot. Cut out of the surface of the rock
in as perfect a circle as was ever described by a
mathematician, is a large cylindrical hole, two
feet deep and one foot wide—the sides and bot
tom of this curious recess being as smooth as
Parise marble_ From the base is a channel or
sort of canal passing out through the remainder
of the rock leading out to the water below it.
Mr. Whitney, the agent at that place, made its
discovery, and upon examination found the hole
filled up with pebble stones of various kinds
and sizes, which, being moved by the eddy of
the water streaming over the rock for centuries
perhaps, keeping up a constant circular motion,
produced this most wonderful result, which
would baffle the skill of the most expert artisan
to accomplish. lie succeeded in clearing out
the opening, and has left just enough of the
rounded pebbles remaining to solve to each ob
server the true philosophy of this most curious
work of nature.
The Futures
The future is a great land; how the lights and
the shadows throng over it—bright and dark,
slow and swift. Pride and Ambition build up
great castles on the plains—great monuments
on the mountains that reach heavenward And
dip their tops in the blue of Eternity. Fame
beektins, sitting high in the heave)" and Joy
lends a halo to the vision.
• The future is a great land, we repeat ; a man
cannot go round it in a days he cannot meas
ure it with a bound; he cannot bind its harvests
in a single sheaf. It is wider than the vision
and has no end. Yet always, day by day, boar
by hour, the hard, inevitable Present is elbow
ing us off into the great land of the Future.

Of late years quite a number of farmers
throughout the country have refined to make
store debts,and they insisted on paying cash for
everything they bought. The result has been
that they have saved enough to pay the Wage;
of a hired man; for they did not get more goods
than were actually needed ; they bought from
10 to 15 per cent. cheaper, and they saved, in
mauey cases, the interest charged on accounts
past duo, all of which made a saving of at least
33 per cent, so that in buying $6OO worth of
goodas2oo were saved. All farmers should adopt
the ready pay system. Credit for goods is of no
value, because the money must be paid some
time, and the inconvenience of going without is
not equal to the distress arising from the at•
tempt to pay old debts.

agree in calling sensible and commend them to
the attention of the reader. They 'will apply
to alt localities in which newspapers circulate:
The printer's dollars—where are they ? A dol

be gathered together? The ,paper-maker, the
Journyman compositor, the building owner, the

Mysterious Disappearance.
Mr. Jonathan Mott, a brother now living in
NIB! city, Pa, has kindly sent us the following
inonnation in regard to this mysterious affair
whirls has excited con Utterable comment in the
community where he was known for thirty
years. Samuel Mott was crazy, and would ol=
-- --ender hi, 1.-a”. in the townshin of
Abington, Lucerne county, which (=ivied
the family a great deal of trouble to take care
of him. At one time he had strayed off as far
as Binghamton, N. Y. liis soother followed hint
nod brought him bark. At another time he had
crosni the Stniquellanna oo the tee, omit La
gnlnge, and was seen by Wakeman Taylor who
iltumed Mr Mott that he s-sw his brother In
Eaton township, Wyomin; county, Pa. Mr.
Taylor accompanied Mr. Mott in tracing him
through the snow over fields and fences until he
t esk to the woods, from tin nee forward until
Mr. Mot: followed Lim alone over high moun
tains, until he found him in a house on' Bow
.man's Creek. Ile finally induced him to return
across the rivor to o.t.:rliouts, where 3lr. Mott
left him- , -by his agreeing to return home alone
by way of Buttermilk Falls. This was the last
Mr. Mott ever saw his brother. lie wits after
ward seen at the Falls, and went from there to
Pittston, Ps_, thence to Abington, and was
there seen by Maj. Thompson got g north past
Ezra Walls. Mr. Mutt thinks tout probably his
brother, as usual,wanttered off among strangers
so for, was the reason why he was never heard
from by his friends afterward. Mr. Mott regrets
that any person should believe the old version
of the story started by Caleb Johnson that
Samuel Mott had been murdered by his friends,
and his body sunk In Mud Pond.
Superintendent's Convention.
Pursuant to the call of State Superintendent
J. P. Wickersham, LL. D., the convention of
County Superintendents met at Scranton, June

The manner of computing the average per.

attention of the convention. It was the sense
or the convention that the basis. of computing
the percentage be the days the pipits belonged
in the schools and not the number of days in
the school term.
The subject of Institutes—districts, local,and

The following rcsoltitlona were adopted:
Resolved, Tlutt examinations should be written
with such incidental modifications as time and
circumstaneof in the judgment of the examiner
may justify; that a vigorous attempt should be
made to elevate the grade, by reducing to the
minimum the number of certificates granted,
and in insisting on teachers' improving their
scholarship from time to time ; that additional
branches, such as physiology, drawing, and if
practicable vocal music should be added; that
great circumspection should be used in the
granting of the higher grade of certificates,
while inculcating the Idea in the minds of teach
ers that the possession of the highest grades of
certificates should bo an object with every
teacher; that Superintendents should endeavor
to arrive at a uniform grade of certificates
throughout the State.
Resolved, That the instruction at our County
Institute should be directly practical in the
I work of the common school, mingled with mu
sic and lectures, which shall tend to awaken
'and strengthen an interest in school work on
the part of the people. '
Resolved, That school visitation is of great
colsequence and should bo continued diligently
by County Superintendent until some otherpro
vision is made, and that parents and directors
be urged to go with Superintendents to the
&solved, That Local Institutes are a power
ful agency in educating both teachers and eiti
rims, and that more good can be accomplished
by them than by school ' , agitation as now con
Rewired, That moral character, general infor
mation, and skill in teaching should be the bas
is for granting certificates of Professor, and not
mere proficiency in the branches.
Re-fared, That Superintendents should en
deavor to arrive at approximate unUormity in
issuing provisional certificates, and that they
should be recognized throughout the State.
Re-alred That we are not yet convinced of
the expediency of a compulsory law, that we
should improve our school houses, grounds,and
teachers, and thus - attain the same end claimed
by such a law.
Fruit Garden.
BLACSDERIIIES.—The fruiting canes shoo'
be tied up to stakes, and all suckers not needed
hoed up. Pinch the end of the new canes
when they have reached a height of 4 or 5 feet.
Rearnenntzs.—Remove all but 3 or 4 new
shoots from each plant, and tie up to stakes or
Dwartr fruit trees will need attention to in
sure a good form. Thin outl.he fruit, and pinch
those shoots which grow too vigorously.
GOOSEBERRIES are most profitable when mark
eted green. The fruit may be cleared of leaves
and sticks by rolling it down an Inclined trough.
GRAPE-VINES planted this spring should only
be allowed to grow one shout. Thin out a por
tion of the fruit on the bearing vines; this
should be done early so that the vines may not
be exhausted. Apply sulphur with a bellows
on the first appearance of mildew. Layers may
be made of the present season's growth.
CrIMANTB—A good mulch will save time In
weeding, and also increase the rim of the fruit.
Apply powdered white hellebore to the leaves
when attacked by the currant worm.
STISAWBEHILIB.B if not already mulched should
be attended to at once, so that the fruit may be
kept free from grit. Keep newly planted beds
free from weeds and hoed often to insurea good
growth before the hot weather comes.

Axo-ruEn CELEURATlONL—Arrangements are
being made at Tunkhanneek, for a pic-nic and
a pleasant time generally, on the Fourth of Ju•
ly. The picnic will be held at Dana's Grove,
In the afternoon. The Tunkbannock Cornet
Band will furnish music for the occasion, .An
extra excursion train will be run on the Mont
rose Railway, at reduced fare, which will en
able all to secure a cheap tide over this popular ,
railway, and give theth a fine opportunity to
look upon as charming scenery as there is to be
found In the State. Annonneemnt by posters,
will give the railway schedule time for the day.

THE SEASHOiE.—Thia wcather is well calcu
lated to remind us of the seashore yoltb its cool
and vigomting breezes and delightful bathing in
the hmakera. :The Columbia house at Cape May
will be ready for guests June 28th, and 31r.1301l
ton informs us his prospects are good for a full
house. The Columbia Is located directly upon
the beach and has a finely shaded. lawn. to a
family resort it has no superior at the seashore.
t has long been conceded that Cape May excels
all other seaside resorts for the safety and
smoothness of its beach. It is the only point upon
the coast where ladles and children can baths
with entire security at any time of the tide.

UULOCKENO TILE ROCKB.—The groat cost of
silver and gold arises not so much from their
scarcity in the earth, as the difficulty of extrac
ting them from their stoney combinations. Hr.
J. C. Ayer, the well known chemist of :Massa
chusetts, Las cut this gordian knot. After hav
ing mented and received the gratitude of half
mankind, by his remedies that cure their dis
ezmes,lie is now winning the other balf,by open.
hag for them an easy road to the exhanstless
treasures of the bills. He has discovered and
published a chemical process, which renders at
little cost,the hardest rocks and ores friable like
chalk, so that the precious metals are loosed
from their confinement, and easily gathered.—
Mines too poor to pay, may be Ntorked at a
profit now, and the yield of rich mines is large
ly increased, while the cost of extracting the
metals from the ore, is diminished. Either Es
.a great achievement, to enrich mankind,or cure
their diseases. But we are informed our cele
brated countryman adheres toile latter, as his
specialty and chief ambition.—Buffalo &Mind.
