FATAL ACCIDFFIT.-A well-known and
much esteemed citizen, Mr. Henry &sore,'
who resided at Park Hill, about 8 miles
West of town, lost hialife on, Friday ev

bare-backed and rode over to his farm ,
about a half mile distant, for the purpose
of transacting some business. • On his re
turn, and after be bad entered a piece of
timber land, which lay between the two
places, the colt it is supposed, from some
cause, took fright and ran against a tree
throwing him and causintalmast instant
death. When found on Saturday morn
ing he was lying on his back. What would
seem to be evidence that he did not strug•
gle after falling is this. It appears he had
been replanting corn on Friday and had
some lose grains in his pocket, which were
scattered near him with one grain on the
lapel of his coat. Near where be was found
the tracks of the colt showed that it had
made several desperate leaps, and it was
also discovered that the bark was knock
ed off a tree about ten feet from where Mr.
B. fell. The deceased was in the 67th

conveyed to Green Hill Ceinetery for in,

more than ordinary severity. About 2
o'clock it commenced raining and contin
ued to pour down in torrents until about
5 P. M., completely deluging our streets
with water, and as is customary on such
occasions, flooding some of the cellars on
Mechanic street. We have not heard of
any damage however from the effects of
storm beyond the washing of some corn
fields and the damaging of several grass
fields from overflowing.
FATAL ACCIDENT.-A fatal accident
occurred on the W. M. R. R., at. Mechan

which Martin Masters, jr., lost his life.--
He was employed by the company on the

Emurranmo, June 9, 1874.
Approaching Emmitsburg from the
West, about half a mile South of the
town. can be seen the spires and tops of
the buildings of St. Joseph's , Institution.
The main body of the buildings is hid
from the view by a 4 , rove of natural forest
trees, in which is found .the graveyard
shaded by the native oak, and so arrang
ed with walks and planted wish flowers
that it looks far more like a garden
than a burying ground, such as are fre
quently met with in passing through the
' St. Joseph's Institution is a Catholic
Institution And is the home and head
quarters of the Sisters of Charity in the
United States. Their number is said to
be about two thousand, of which about
one hundred and fifty probably are stay
in. at home. As an order in the Church
they are female missionaries and it is
their duty to spend their lives in the cause
of Christ, .by performing acts of charity.
By going abroad as teachers and .estab
lishing schools; by laboring in hospitals
and visiting th sick and by attending to
all manner of duties calculated to further
the cause of the Redeemer, and to reach
the miseries and -wretchedness of man
Walking up the Avenue, a distance of
several hundred yards from the public
road, the eye is first arrested by the fine
large church,built of brick, painted white,
and surmounted by the cross. Immedi
ately to the right and Ft short distance
back stands the new Academy built in
1872 and '73. This is one of the finest
buildings found within a distance of many
miles and Is probably one of the most ex
pensively furnished academies in the
In the basement are found three steam
boilers, in size resembling the boilers
commonly used for small locomotive en
gines. Four sets.of iron paps pass all
through the buildings, or at all events, to
any parLicular apartment in which they
may be required. One set of pipes convey
the water up and another coon it down.
One set convey the steam which is used
fir heating the apartments in winter time
and for heating• water wherever it is
wanted. The last set_of pipes_are the gas
pipes, conveying the gas fot lighting the
house. The water used is taken from the
mountain stream running close by and is
elevated by water power.
Among the curiosities of the place is a
large clock, said to have been made in
Paris. Soon after reaching the grounds,-
you notice what seems to be a strange
ringing of hells; upon close observation
pod discover that the sounds are produced
by a clock striking the quarters of hours,
having three bells, each one of a diffirent
sound. The large hell on which the hour
is struck is about the sound of D below
the F clef' in music; the next one in size
about the sound of _and the smaller one
the Found of.F sharp.
If .the clock has struck the hour of
twelve, then five minutes before the end
of the next quarter, notice is given by a
light stroke on the large bell.. At the first
quarter there is one stroke on the ,small
bell. Five minutes before the half hour,
notice again occurs. At the half hour
there is first a stroke on the small bell,
followed immediately by another on the
middle sized bell, Five minutes before
three-quarters the same notice occurs, at
three quarters there is first a stroke on
the small bell, then one on the middle
sized bell, then one on the small bell.—
Five minutes before the hour, notice still
occurs. A. minute or so before the end of
the hour,the tour quarters are struck, first
by a stroke on the small bell, then one on
the middle bell, then ,one on the small
bell, then one on the middle bell, and
then in a few seconds follows the striking
of the hour on the large bell.
Among the living things that move a
bout on the premises are about fifty six
cows, living in a larger and better house
than a portion of mankind. Their buil
ding is about one hundred and fifty feet
long and forty feet wide, is of brick, built
in five sections with a wing added. The
middle and end sections are two stories
high and the remaining two a story and
a half. All along the lower story there
'are regular windows with twelve panes of
ten by twelve glass. At a number of
places there are entrances with gates wide
enough for wagons to pass through. In
the upper story are a number of openings
large enough to pitch in hay, and the
windows have the appearance of being
closed by two shutters, filled with ua row
strips allowing the air to peas through.
"In the lower story at one end of the buil
ding is placed a large boiler to make hot
water, and to steam any kind of feed. A
railroad track leads to the opposite et.d,
on which the teals conveyed to any de
Ernotitsburg contains about eight hun-
dred inhabitants, and to the eye of the
traveler presents something of-an antique
appearance. Of the population about one•
third are said to be Catholics: Of church
edifices, five are found in the place—Cath
olic, German Reformed, Lutheran, Pres
byterian and Methodist. Among which
number the Catholic is the largest and
the Methodist the smallest. S.
TIIE POTATO Buo.—A correspondent of
the Lancaster Exlminer says:—They are
ten times more destructive than the old
Potato Bug we used to have. They nev ,
er did disturb the early potatoeq to any ex
tent. Bu‘this beetle is at work as soon as
vegetation starts in the spring and remains
until the frosts come in the fall. They
lay about one thousand eggs at one time;
in about three days the young are batched
out and enter the ground, in ten days
they come to the surface full grown beet
les and begin laying eggs as did their
mothers. So you see that in about thir
teen days the beetle number oneis grand
mother. This process of incubation is kept
up all summer. It is supposed that the
(aspen of ono beetle will reach sixty
millions in one season.

The communication In the Record of
last week, entitled "Our Business Hours"
pleases us so well that we are constrained
to drop the yard stick and lay hold of the
pen to make this public acknowledgment
of our appreciations of the expressiOns of
sympathy and well-timed suggestions of
"Observer,". It jingles quite pleasing in
our ears to hear the words, "we pity the
poor clerk." It is a stubborn fact that
we devote too much time to business, 'six
teen to eighteen hours inside heated store
rooms, surrounded by stacks of dry goods,
groceries," &e. during the hot summer
months is certainly injurious to health.—
Those who enjoy the cool, exhilerating
breezes of evening in out door exercise,
can little realize bow much we would en
joy similar pleasure. The wan and hag
gard countenances and lank frames of the
majority of merchants are largely attrib
utable to the pernicious sixteen hour sys
Observer is in error, when he attributes
the heathenish hour for closing to the
getting of the "mighty dollar." There is
probably not a merchant in W--,
who would not gladly close at, say eight
o'clock, were it not for the exacting de
mands of trade. It is too true, that the
habit of doing shopping just previous to
the hour for retiring is indulged in to an
unreasonable extent by our citizens, and
now the remedy; nothing short of a milled
4eternituation on the part of our mer
chants can bring about a change. 'We
raise our voice,and say with Observer,
who will make the move? In a great many
towns the stores are closed at 7 o'clock,
and surely, we ought to be allowed the
privilegeof closing at 8. Awaiting some
decided action in this matter, we make
our bow and retire behind the counter
with the modest suggestion to buyers that
