A New Orleans paper chronicles a case of cholera In this way: "A colored woman named Marie Williams, was sent to the hospital. suffer ing from an attack of cholera. She had been arrested on a charge of drunkenness. The last clause of the paragraph, It may be added h very suggestive. It will account for about sev en-eighths of the cases of this disease that are so regularly reported almost everywhere on the tneoming of hot weather. Our grim Asiatic visitor is charged with a good deal that really has its origin in whisky." °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. Selling Screws It often becomes desirable to insert screws in plaster walls, without 'attaching them to any woodwork, but when we turn them in the plas ter they give way, and our effort Is vain. And ytt a screw may be inserted in plaster so ns to bold light pictnies, etc., very firml, . The he-t plan Is to enl3rze the bole to about twice th e diameter of the screw, nil it with plaster of risr is, such as is used for fastening the top. oflamps, etc„ and bed the screw iu the soft I.la+trr. When the plaster has set, the screw n ill he held very strongly. Don't Cat Too Low Ma ay of our farmers make a great mistakt• in their grass e e ry low, and thi• is Clove parti -olitriv the cnqe with timothy. If cut be low the first joints, its rooto will eel loin read up shoots auain untu alter the hirm.ttionot ucw side bull. Clover and other deep rooted plains are not so much affected, but we are satisfied that all or any of them may :,be, and often are injured by toil elate cuttin.:. It is n fact well known that if timothy is allowr•t to ripen its seed, and than cut with a toupee or cradle, the aeronil i r , - rowth trill fornisit double the amount of rtzfitare.as adjoining grant cut for hay. Remember roue Illorxe 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. They should be driven slowly, and the loads should be considerably less than that usually imposed in cool weather. Loosen the check rein, or dispense with it altogether and cover the anttnal with a Ily.het, or preferably, with a light sheets 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 people. Important. 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 pay. The* accounting officers of the Com monwealthctaioithat it Imposed a tax upon the entire receipts of the company. The amount involved in this case is about $42,. Mutt to Lady Gardeners.

The largest shipment of like stock In one day ever transferred from the Pennsylvania railroad to the Lebanon Valley occurred on Sunday -181 care of cattle, 25 of hogs, 2 of sheep and 2 of horses and mules, making 210 in all. Beside 200 cars laden with coal and oil, requiring thin. teen engines to draw the burden, passed over the Lebanon Valley. 01 the cattle 125, cars were shipped by Nelson Morris, of Chicago, 39 by J. it. M'Pheraon, of Now Jersey, and the re mainder by small dealers. The number of cat tle was about 2,900 Jurti hogs 3,000, and the to. tal value of the cargo closely approximated g.V5,000, Mr. Morris' share being about 6200,- 000. The daily average of stock shipped over the Lebanon Valley railroad is about 70 car loads, or nearly 500 per week. The heaviest shipments are on Sunday and Thursday, and the lightest on Monday and Friday. Funerals in Brook lyn. The funeralof Lyman Ely, was attended by a large congregation at the M. E. Chnreh, in llrwklyh, Monday, June 9th, 1873. Many citi zens of our county will recollect Mr. Ely's easy, quiet and accommodating way and manner, of doing business, belonging to the Constables of fice, which he held for a number of years, giv ing entire satisfaction to all who put business in his hands to do. lit, was much esteemed, as n neighbor, friend and Christian. He was seven ty-seven years of age. The funeral service of Mrs. Sally Bissell, W(111 held at the house of her son-in-law, H. C. Fair child, on Wednesday, Jima 11th, 1873.- 11er husband, Dr. Samuel Bissell, came to this county, when it .was nearly n wildernms, from Otsego county, N. Y, and was the first settled physician in the township. Early settlers will with pleasure recollect the valuable servi ces rendered by this aged lady In her earlier days. She we.? eighty-one years of age. 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. Manufacturing The benefit of manufactnringeMahlishments to a town is nointedly illustrated in an incident mentioned be Dr. Mom before the St. Louis Farmers' (Auk Ile said: "A few years age, a gentleman having invented an improvement in moving machines. proposed to the citizens of Colton, Ohio, that they should loan hint klto,- 000 to nthnufacture them at that place. They lii it, and that one manufactory was the nu cleus ramil which the following tun's gather ed ; Two, immense agricultural Wiplement• man factories, one of plows exclusively. one at stoves and hollow ware, 011 e 01 piper, 0110 .0 mower halves, one of saddlery and harness, tern of furniture, One of horse rakes, one of farm wag ons. one of cultivators, one of wrought iron bridges, one of moan, besides a large number of others, more or less extensive.

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. There are thousands of earnest, toiling men —and womee,too-- in our land. young men and women, with high aims and noble ambitions, struggling onward tinder difficulties the gr..mt est, to whom we Would say i press onward in your career, let no obstacle interrupt your march, and no contrary gale dishearten you; the world belongs to men of courage. Outlives are generally What we will to make them.

And while We thus hope for the best, to our selves, let us not forget that hope alone Is noth ing, unless II will stimulate to individual user- Con. raying Cast.. 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. alanalhcturlas Statistics. According to the census there are 387 manu facturing establishments In Dauphin county, in which 4,893 hands arc employed, whose Itggre gate annual wages amount to $1,998,786.

Patriot. The Printer's Estate We find in an exchange the following re marks which all printers and publishers will 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 lar here and a dollar there scattered over the country miles and miles apart how shall they be gathered together? The ,paper-maker, the Journyman compositor, the building owner, the grocer, the tailor and all assistants to him in carrying on his business have their demands hardly ever small as a single dollar. But the mites from here and there must be dilligently collected gathered and patiently hoarded or the herewith to discharge the liabilities will never become sufficiently bulky. We imagine he will have to get up an address to his widely scatter ed dollars something like the following: "Dol lars, halves, quarters, dimes and all manner of fractions Into which you are divided, collect yourselves and come home. You are wanted. Combinations of all carts of men that help to make the printer a proprietor gather in such force and demand whir such good 'reasons your appearance at this counter that nothing short of you will please them. Collect yourselves for valuable as you are you will never pay the cost of collecting. Come in single file that the prin ter may form you In battalion and send you forth again to battle for him and vindicate his feeble credit." Header, are you sure you haven't a couple of the printer's dollars sticking about your clothes? If you have order them home im mediately 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 24th, 1873, at 10 o'clock. In the absence of the State Superintendent. Mr. Henry Houch, Dep. uty State Superintendent, called the convention to order, and stated the object in calling' them together. On motion of Superintendent Rodle, of Wyo. ming county, Superintendent Allen, of Wayne county, was elected Secretary. The roll was called and the following gentle men responded : lion. Henry Houck and Prot; Curry represented the Department; Superin tendents W. A. Campbell, of Enzerne, T. J. Bottle, of Wyoming, John Layton, of Pike, C. Tilden, of Susquehanna, A. A. Keeney, of Bradford, and B. P. notion], of Carbon. Su perintendents of Columbia and Monroe counties were absent. On motion, the chair appointed Superintend ents Campbell, Tilden, and Bodin a commlttea on resolutions. The manner of computing the average per. centage and daily attendance then received the 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 county—was then - discussed. While all the mem , hers of the convention were of the opinion that the fernier are beneficial, yet the holding of teem stre'not practicable in the =al districts and they should be superseded - by local WS totes as more good can be accomplished by them than in visiting schools as now conducted, Superintendent Muck devoted thirty minutes to answering questions pertaining to the school law. Among other paints it was decided that a collector must reside in the district for which lie is appointed 1 that the vote of four directors are necessary to the election or dirsissal of a teacher. Mae subject of institutes ties then resumed, It was decided that foreign talent should not be employed to the exclusion of onrown teach er% and recommended that the teachers should infuse life =Calera- into our . Inetitntee and I not be made mere passive recipients by art.rui due multiplicity of foreign instructors. A spirited discussion was then bad on a uni form plan for bolding teachers' examinations.— While a uniform plan did not meet with general approbation, it was decided that the examina tion should continue In the oral and written plan. The evening session was occupied In the dis cussion of certificates, provisional, professional, and permanent, and compulsory attendance. 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 schooLs. &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 ducted, 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 wires. 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. Business Locals DR. 6.IRVIN'S TAII REMEDIES Re 1 3 ... in In the Side or Back. BLANK .

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. July 2d, 1873.—w2 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.
