An exchange says : Last week a cow
of depraved taste, that resides in Newtown,
ate ntiy pounds ot sausages, which, after
beinsr nicely wrapped up iu corn-husk, in
pound iwkaes, had leen put in the yard
to cool. It is rumored that the cow went
up to these sausages she had known the
pig from which they had lieen constructed
from the time he was a shoat and lefore
commencing her feast, said : "Pork, you
pine to Ik: eaten, and as I would not think
of eating porcupine, I shall eat yon." As
we say, tiiis remark of the cow is merely a
name of Dr. Keyser's Lung Cure. It will
cure the first stages of Consumption with
out fail : it will often cure it in its last stag
es. It has arrested Consumption hundreds
of times in its incipiency.

Owing to the severe cold weather of last
week, our Railroad was compelled to sus
pend operations for twenty -four hours It
aiare that the pleasant eicrience of last
winter when the engine was froze np again
and again, was not a sufficient lesson for
the managers of the road. We hope the
lesson" of this winter will make a stronger
impression, and that the engine may lie
hereafter warmly housed and not exjxieed
to inclemency of the weather. The road .
is now in ;eration, trains arrive and de
part on time.

Peterson's Magazine for January,
1873, is already on our tabic. Never was
there a handsomer or better nuiulier. In
spite of competition "Peterson" more than
holds his own. It is hard to tell which of
its two steel engravings is the best, "Cher
ry Ripe," or "The Initials on the Tree,"
they arc both so beautiful. There is a
large-sized colored Berlin pattern for a
sofa cushion, or foot -stool, in more than a
dozen colors w hkh, at retail, would cost
a dollar. The mammot it colored steel fash
on plate is exquisite : "Peterson'' is now
the only magazine that gives these colored
steel plates. The stories as always, in
this lady's book, are the very best. " Two
powerful novelets are begun in this number.
By all means subscribe to "Peterson's
Magazine," that is after you have subscrib
ed to vour local pajicr. The price is but

Now, I look at it in this way : "Sin
brought death into the world, and it (Kiss
ed upon all men" as the penalty of the
law ; and without redemption, the law of
sin and death would have held men forever
in this state. But Christ came and fulfilled
the law by doing what the law required,
which was to die. "lie poured out His
soul unto death." His death was vicarious.
He went just where the law had put the
sinner, in a state devoid of life. Now, as
the son of man, he died, but as the Son of
God He, by His own power, took up his
life again, and thus came forth as a Saviour
who had died like all men had to die, then
rose again as an object of faith ; and now,
by virtue is hi vicarious death for all. all
are placed on the same level, as tar as
Christ's death Is concerned. He died for
all, and when He comes "all that arc in
their graves shall hear his voice and come
forth." Here is redemption from the power
of the grave for all, and thus restored in
Christ the second Adam, what was lost in
the first, viz: life. Here wc notice that
universal redemption is not universal eter
nal life. The unlieliever shall not see life.
because, though he will be redeemed from
the first death, yet he is sentenced to the
second oeatti, irom wnicn tuere is no re

the fire originated, it is supposed, from a

check the flames or even secure any of the

blowing at the tune, so that it was but the
work of a moment to reduce the building
to ashes, the inmates barely escaping with

The Pittsburgh Comi.irrtial says :
"Here is one of the soundest temperance
arguments we ever cameaemtw. I heonlv
buiiierancc railroad in the United State!
indeed ia the world is said to lie the Ma
rietta and ntM'unrh railroad, runninz
from Marietta to Cambridge, a distance of
titty-nine miles. Every ofliccr and em
ployee of the road is a practical temper-
ante man, and not a single latul accident
has ever occurred on it since it was first
ojiened. This is suggestive as lar as it
goes, and it goes fifty-nine miles."
tVe know of another "temticrante" rail
road, at least it has a practical temperance
man in the Suicnntenlent s oftice, and he
sees to it that tut men ot intemperate hab
its nave any responsible iofcitions on the
road. We refer to K, It. Hyndman, Esq.,
SuiK-nntendent of the Pittsburg, Wash
ington and Baltimore Ilailway (Connells
ville route.) Kcfore he assumed his pres
ent position accidents on that road were of
almost daily occurrence now and since that
time they are seldom heard of, and thtise
that do hapjien are of the unvoidahle kind.
This is suggestive as far as it goes, and it
goes one hundred and fifty -two miles !

A Sikhitino Affkay occurred in.the
yard at the rear if the City Hotel, lietween
eleven and twelve o'chx'k yesterday morn
ing, in which a colored man named Charles
Duntmr, recently employed there as a jxir
tcr, was shot by John V. Hhind, Estj.,
manager of the house. Three shots were
fired Irom a revolver, each of w hich took
effect in the negro's leg, none of the
woumls lieing serious, however. The
cause leading to the shooting originated on
Monday in the refusal of Dunbar to take
some lgg:ige from the hotel to the depot,
w hen he was also very insolent in his lan
guage and manner toward Mr. Khind. He
was .informed that his wages would be
withheld unless he performed the duty for
h hick he was employed ; yet he flatly re
fused to touch the baggage, and quit work.
Mr. Khind afterwards sent the trunk to the
depot hn omnibus. Yesterday morning
about day break as Mr. Khind was splitting
wood for fire in the yard, prejiaratory to
butchering some hogs Dunliar entered the
enclosure and walked around htm several
times whistling, and swinging himself w ith
an air of insolent bravado. As Mr. Khind
took no notice of him he went away and
did not again return until Ix-twcen eleven
and twelve o'clock, w hen he came up to
Mr. Khind, who was assisting the butcher,
and asked him for his ty. On being told
that there was not much coming to him, he
contemptuously replied "Xo, there ain't
much coming to me, if you charge me with
what you paid the omnibus for taking the
trunk." Mr. Khind asked him why he
had refused to take the trunk in the first
instance, when he replied "I didn't."
"You had better tall me a liar" said Mr.
Khind, when Dunliar again replied "Well,
I didn't refute to take the trunk." At
this Mr. Khind seized a stick and struck
Dunliar w ith it, when the latter immedi
ately grabbed it, and a strugslc ensued,
during which Messrs. Dennis O'Neal and
Kichard Mahoncv and two colored men in
the yard separated the parties. Dtyibar
then became more violent than liefore, and
fell to cursing, brandishing his lists, daring
Mr. Khind out in the street and making
threats generally, when, in the excitement
f the moment, Mr. Khind drew his revol
ver and fired, with the result aliove given.
He subsequently apiK-ared liefore Justice
Flanagan and was held to bail in the sum
of $21X1, ta answer at Court. The negro
is a vicious looking man and has the repu
tation of lieing a very desperate character,
having, it is said, stabbed a man recently
in GralVtn, from whence he last hails.
