past has kept the Ilankmson Store in upper
Meshoppen—ha been succeeded by Daniel
Ilankirison and 11. P, Carter—who will con
tinue the business under the firm name of
Hankinson & Carter. A general stock of
Merchandise, suitable to the wants of the
farming community, will be kept by the new

Stamps on Notes.
A week or two since we published what
purported to be a decision in reference to
sumps on judgment notes. Since which we
Lave received a note from a Deputy Collector
of the 12th District, which corrects a mistake
made in reference to the 50 cent stamps
required on notes containing a confession of
judgment. The law in this respect, as charg
ed by Gmgreas last winter, exempted notes
from this 50ct stamp. It is in other respects
as published by us, ie ; A 6tamp of scts is
nquired for every SIOO or fractional part
thereof -and 5 cts for the agreement of waiv
er of exemption and inquisition.
We would recommend all who want the
genuine "Mishlers Bitters" to go to Dr.
Reads' Drug Store.
It is generallyconceded by all who have
• an eye out" for bargains, that be keeps the
largest and best assortment of Drugs, \fedioinei
Perfumery, Tobacco, Segars, Stationery and
all otner articles pertaining to tho trade, of
any other Drug Stoap in the country. Call
and see for yourselves. Tho great numbers
we see constantly going in and out of his
establishment, proves that we are correct in
what we asset.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT BITTER.—
When people buy sugar molasses, muslin, j
or almost any other commodity at a store, I
tliey pay for it according to the quality of I
tbe article purchased. Nobody would j
think of paying as much for a pound of the i
commonest brown sugar as they would for
tbe same quantity of pure white pulverized,
nor is it asked; but a pound of butter unfit
for anything but wagon grease costs tbe
same as a pound of the sweetest and fresh- '
est butter in the market. Now, this is
manifestly unjust and wrong—unjust to
consumers and to those who make good
butter. It is an evil that should be remed
ied, and may be, if storekeepers will but i
take the matter in hand and act in concert.
Let them discontinue the practice of paying
the same for shoe grease as they do for
sweet butter, and we shall soon have more
of the latter and less of the former in our
market. But the storekeepers must act
together in the matter, and stick to what
ever they agree among themselves to do.
A departure by one or more of them from
the rule laid down by all, would not only
operate to the disadvantage of other mer
chants. but defeat the very thing it was ex
pected to accomplish. Let our business
men act upon our suggestion.
MANY persons in subscribing for a news
paper suppose it is a sort of charity —a
, work in which ali the obligation is on the
pait of the printer, and that they are con
i fet ing a benefit on him 6olely. We object
to this view. We believe that every one
of our subscribers gets the value of his
money one hundred fold. Each copy of
i our paper if printed in ordinary book fortnj
would make a volumn of severa
pages, and this or the small
ijpm of four cents! It combines poetry,
stories, history, travels, local and general
news, the markets, politics, public sales,
marraiages, deaths, accidents, and in taet
is a concentration of all thß is readable and
interesting. Put it in the hands of a child,
and he not only acquires a habit of reading,
but he becomes acquainted with the history
and events of bis times, aud hegrowa up to
b£ a man of information and general intelli
gence. To the woman it is not only a
blessed relief from labor and a companion
during many a lonely hour, but from it she
; can teach and instruct her children, besides
acquiring for herself many useful hints and
facts, To the man it is all important, not
only because it gives him the information
of the day, but because its columns teem
with notices which are of vital importance.
Is there a new invention, the papers ad
vertise it. Is a bank broke, he is at once
i informed of it. If an estate is to be settled,
;an accont audited or filed, notice mu>t be
given in paper, and thur., in many instances
instances hundreds of dollars are saved.

How TO STOP THE FLOW OK BLOOD.—
Housekeepers, mechanics and others, in
handling knives, tools and other sharp in
struments, frequently receive severe cuts, j
from which blood flows profusely and
oftitnes endangers life itself. Blood may
be made to cease to flow as follows: Take
the tine dust of tea and bind it close to the j
wound—at all times accessible and easy to !
be obtained. Alter the blood has ceased
: to flow, laudanum is advantageously appli
ied to thewouud. Due regard to these in
structions would save agitation of mind,
' and running for a surgeon, who probably !
would make no better prescription if he j
' were present.
Another Counterfeit. —A new and dan
gerous counterfeit—national currency—of
the denomination of five dollars, has just
been put in circulation, which will surely
mislead careless handlers of money, and j
even the careful, without close observance.
On the left end of the note, the wrist of
the left aim of Columbus is scarcely visi

At the top, read "This note it secured
by boDds." The letters "b" and "y" are
too far apart; and the "o" iu bonds is un
der the "j" whereas the "b' in the same
word is immediately under the "y' in the i

bill is a close imitation ol the genuine.

Thomas' Patent Atmospheric
Patented May 7th, 1867.
The mast Important and Valuable Invention
the 19<y Century,
1. The Dasher Is superior to any other, by being
as simple as the old dasher, ahd combining the at
mospheric principle therewith, and the Sutler Oath
2. It is superior to all others, inasmuch as the
same power applied to this in like mechanical oper
ations will make one-lourth more reciprocations.
3. It is superior to all others, inasmuch as it pro
duces in a much shorter timo.
4. It is superior to any other, inasmuch as it pro
duces a much better quality ot Butter.
Lastly it is superior to any other Patent Churn ,
inasmuch as it i* 500 per cent, cheaper than any
It is well known to Dairymen and others, that
Butter is contained in minute globules or sacks cov
ered with a membrane, and requires the action of
air to prepare the covering to be removed by lric
tion. The Scientific American gays :
"If cream is dasued against hard substance or
mashed between bars or rollers,it breaks the globules
and becomes oily, by destroying the grain. It
should be thrown into currents and counter-currents
by the action of air, causing a friction by the cnr
rerits hgainst each other, removing the covering
without breaking or bursting the globules."
This is the principle which the inventot of this
Dasher endeavored to keep in view, and the result
shows a much
LARGER YIELD OF BI TTER OBTAINED IN
LESS TIME THAN AN'Y OTHER DASHER
Experiments have proven that any other method
except pumping air through the cream ,will not pen
etrate sufficiently to oxygenize all the globnlea pre
paratory to concentrating the butter. Throwing it
into the air by clappers of old fashioned Dashers,
does not sufficiently expose it to the air to bring out
The above Patent Dasher has be-a purchased for
Susquehanna, Wyoming and Luieme Counties by
A, P Baldwin, of Montrose. The process of churn
ing can he seen on exhibition at tYall's Hotel in
Tuukhannuck, fur a few days by Mr. Reynolds,
agent, who will sell township rights,

RAIL ROAD CO.

As an Investment.
Tho rapid progress of the Union Pacific Railroad
n<>w building weft from Omaha, Nebraska, and for
| iniiig, with its western cinnections, n unbroken line
across the continent, attracts attention to the value
of the First Mortgage floods which the Company
now offer to the pulllo. The first question asked by
prudent investors is, "Are these bonds secure 1"
! Next, "are they a profitable investment V to reply
t in brief;
Ist. The early completion of the whole great line
to the Pacific is as certain as any future business
eveni'can be. The Government grant of over twen
ty million acres of land and fifty million dollars in
i its own bonds practically guarantees it. One fourth
i of the work is already done, and the track continues
! to be laid at the rate' of two miles a day.
2d. The Union Pacific Railroad bonds are issued j
upon what promises to be one of the most profitable j
j lines of railroad in tha country. For many years it '
' must be the only line connecting tho Atlantic and !
■ Pacific ; and being without competition; it can main
' tain remunerative rates,
I 3d 425 miles of this road are finished, >nd fully
; equipped with de< ots, locomotives, cars, and i
two tisirs are daily running each way. The raateri- j
| llls f or the ,emaining 131 miles to the eastern base
! of the Rocky Mountains ore on hand, and it is under
!.contract to : o dot. ■ in September.
4th Theu- t • a.oings of the sections already fin
• ished are several timet greater than the rold inter- !
est upon the First Mortgage Binds upon such sec
-1 tions, and if not another mile of the road were built 1
i the part already completed would not only pay in- i
terest and expenses, but he profitable to tho Com- ;
sth. The Union Pacific Railroad bonds can be is
ued only n* the road progresses, aod therefore can
never he in the market unless they represent a bona
i 6ih Their amount is is strictly limited by law to
a sum equal to what is granted by the U. S. Gov- \
eminent, and for whi hit takes a stennd lien as its
i security. 'lbis amount upon the first 517 iciies west
from Auiahu is only $16,000 per mile.
7th The fact that the U. 5. Government consid- j
I eisa second lien upon the road a good investment, j
and that some of the shrewdest railroad builders of j
the country have alread- paid in five million dol- j
I Urs upon the stock (which is to them a third lien),
may well Inspire confidence in a first lien.
; 8(h. Although it is not claimed that there can be
' iny better securities that Governments, there nre
parties who consider first mortgage upon such a
property as this the very best security in the world,
and who sell their Governments to re-invest in tbeso
j bonds—thus securing a greater interest.
! 9th. As the Union Pacific Railroad bends are offer
| ed for the ) resent at 90 cents on the dollar and ac
' crued interest, they are the cheapest security in the
market, being over 15 per cent, less than U. S.
10th, At the current rate of of premium on gold,
Over Nine per Cent. Interest.
