Starved to Death. Tho Cou-
ncautville Courier of lust week iu
speaking of the death of Gilbert Cut
ler, proprietor of the Cutler House, at
Crossingville, Crawford county, says:
The particulars of bis death from a
case of particularity distressing inter
est, he having literally died of starva
tion. He had been ailing for several
months, from stricture of the a.-sopha-gus,
and was only to partake of liquid
food, the quantity growing smaller
with each succeeding day, until at
length ho was unable to swallow a sin
gle drop. For thirteen days previous
to his death not the slightest particle
of food or drink reached his stomach,
and death to him was a welcome vis
itor. The disease was simply the grad
ual closing of the tube through w hich
food is conveyed to the stomach, and
the best mcdicul skill failed in afford
ing relief.
Sad Accident. In Sharon a few
days ago a child aged about two years,
daughter of a Mr. Jones, who resides
near the E. & P. R. R. depot in that
place, was fatally scalded by pulling a
pitcher of boiling hot water from a
table standing near, the water coming
agaiust the child's face aud rushing
down its neck and breast. Medical
aid was not called until the next day,
which was too late to save its life,

London, January 29. Bismarck.
alluding to the reported negotiations

Lecture on Thursday Evening.
On this evening, Hon. James Parton,
of New York, will lecture iu the Court
House, under the auspices of the
Franklin Lecture Association. Mr.
Parton has a national reputation as
lecturer he stands in the front ranks of
those appearing to American audi
ences. His subject, "One Hundred
Yeats Ago," is a pleasing one, and we
doubt not a rare treat is in store for
all attending.
Capt. W. C. Howe, formerly of Pit
hole, connected with the firm of Mc
Cullum & Wagner, coal dealers, has
purchased a lot opposite the Exchange
hotel and intends erecting thereon
residence in the spring. We welcome
the Captain to the "Nursery," and are
glad that ho is determined to make
this city bis home. He is known
throughout the oil regions as a first
class, go-anead business men, and we
hail the advent of such persons in our

An affair which came near resulting
seriously, is reported to have occurred
a few eveniiiiB since at the residence
of Mrs. Orton, near Parker's Landin
Our readers will remember tho receut
trial and conviction of Greenwood, at
the last terra of court in Kiltauuing,
it will be remembered, was tried for
the murder of Fleming, who rasalleg
ed to have been upon intimate terms
with Mrs. Orton, a sister of the mur
dcrcr. Since thut time it is alleged
that a young mag, residing iu the vi
ciuity of Parker's Landing, hns been
the habit of calling upon Mrs. Orton
trequcntly. Another man, who was
also upon very friendly terms with her
called a few evenings since, and a quar
rel sprang up between the two, when
one of them placed tho muzzle of a re
volver close to tho other's head un
pulled the trigger. Fortunately the
pistol missed fire, and the parties were
separated be fur anything more serious
resulted, An information for assault
with intent to kill was mudo before
'Squire Scott, but withdrawn before
the case came up for hearing.
