al,. ,
little kirlig were engaged at play,and being
an' evil dispoied youth, interfered with the
girls, and attempted to drive them,away
by throwing atones at them. Johnny Best /
h lad about Moritz's age, and a smaller boy
*to were playing in an alley near by, were
balled npon by . the girls to protect them
from Moritz, and did so, by coming out and
attempting to drive Moritz away. He re
fused to go, however, and after quarreling,
the boys got Into a scums. They separated
again, and while Beat was standing with
his aide toward Moritz,- looking in an oppci
site direetion, the latter drew a knife and
stabbed him,-the blade of which penetrated
the abdominal wall, nflicting a severe and
"serious wound. Dr. R. S. Sutton was called
upon' 'and dressed the . wound. He states
that so far as he could ascertain the intes
tines were not injured,' and if inflammation
of the t?ovrols doos not set in the boy will
recover. The young scrtpe grace who per
petrated the act was arrested and taken to
tlielock up. Ito g ill pr bably cornmit

Comfort at Home:
.We know of no one of the twenty-four'
hours of toe day in which we find go much
real.physibal - pleasure in the hour spent
in the bath room or 'barber shop. .Who
that dOeS not shave 11' self will not travel
over a Mile of stye e p and Tess a dozen of
indifferent barber shops to find one where
the operators are skillful, the razors alvitive
in order, the towels clean, the seatsluxu
rious, the room fragrant with sweet odors,
the fountains of limpid water flowing from
marble basins, and everything fitted up and
arranged with good -. taste and kept bright
and clean? And who would not also travel
out of his way to find a perfect bath with
all the needful concomitants of hot and cold
water for shower and plunge, soap, flash
brush and every convenience, all kept
temptingly clean? From all wtioae taste
is for the best of these essentials, from'all
who delight in easy and perfect shaving,
'elegant hair dressing or shampooning,
from all especially who care for their health
by frequent bathing and are scrupulous
about cleanliness and comfort, from all
such we claim thanks for informing them
that no better place can be found in either
city than has been provided and kept up
by Mr. S. B. Williainson, at :No. 190 Fed
eral street, Allegheny. If the reader doubts
let hial visit his barber shop with its corps
of professional jouis, or hissuite of bathing
rooms, with their obliging ,and attentive
W,aiters, he will doubt no ionizer.
