Going Oli.-The temperance reformation in this
ant y seems to be progressing. Within the past
to or three weeks, Good Templar Lodges hare been
crgsoized at Falls, Fork?ton, Monroe. Mchoopany,
y.rthmoreland and Russell Hill. In many of these
plioe? organizations of ths kind bare heretofore been
M known. With properly directed efforts these Lodg
i! may bring about much good.
the Statement of receipts and expenditures
for this County during tho past year, makes our col
amns a tittle crowded, and limits the amount and
vnriety of our inside reading matter.
The finances of the County, considering the recent
heavy expenditures for new Jail, Bridge building,
i f re, a? "'lt be seen, in good condition. Nearly
tßl ugh ~f tho last year's heavy tax, remains uncol
jseted. and in the hand' of the Treasurer to finish
paying fof ike Jail. The Commtsssoners will proba
llv levy a tax for County purposes ot only about
half the a mount imposed last year.
Fi^htl—The usu.il quiet of our town is now ana
then disturbed by a grand rush of idlo men and boys
towards some saloon or place where this classmost
do congregate." The boys iu the streets, without
seeing more —conclude that a display of the so
called •' manly art of self-defence" is about to be
nude— sud cry, at tbe top of their voices, ''fight!
fight!' fight!!!" An event of this kind occurred in
town a night or two since, in which one of the com
batants threw a heavy iron weight, cutting a fright
ful gash in the cheek ot the other, which will no
doubt disfigure him for life. If men will so far for
get their mannood as to en ;age in these disgraceful
fights, they should at least observe w hat the "fancy"
call " fair play."

Tuning and Repairing,—-There are many
persons in possession of Pianos and MelodeoOi that
have been worn a good deal, or perhaps iiijuieJ,
who could still have a good deal of substantia] wear
out of them if they were properly put in order. To
meet ibis large an 1 increasing demand L. 11. Powell
has added to his Music Store iu Scranton a Repair
.Shop, and has put it in charge of a man who has had
large experience both in the manufacture ol new in
strumcnts an 1 the repairing of old ones, so that he is
no* prepared to do all kinds of repairing, including
Pianos, Organs. Mclodeous, Guitars, Violins, Aecer
deon*, and everything in the shape ol musical instru
mints, with promptness and in asubstanti.il manner.
A Free Fight occurred at Mehoopany one
night last week, which from the accounts given us,
wis one of the freest of, the free. This general me

dred and four combatants would bo impossible ; and
to furnish the names ef only a few of them might be
considered unjust to the unnamed ptigna ion sly dis

lost ; and but few wounds were received. Some bad
blood and considerable worse whisky were spilt

T he Insurance Conspiracy.—The people of
Tioga ire much excited in relation to the approach
irg trial of parties to a conspiracy which was dis
covered last summer to insure buildings largely
above their value, for the purpose 01 defrauding In
surance Companies. The parties to it were Theo
dore Hatfield, agent at Wellsboro', of the Commerce
Insurance Company of Albany N Y., (who wasfor
taerly in the Provost Marshal's office in Scranton)
and one Tom Green. Tl e former to do the insuring
and the latter the fning. On diecoveiy, eight in
dictments were found against them, and they are to
he tried on these this week at Wellsboro'. Tbo pros
ecutor in the case is W. T. Reed, General Agent of
the Wyoming Insurance Company of Wilkes Bane,
one of the victimized companies. C. R. Knowlc,
Attorney and General Agent of the Commerce In
surance Company, is to attend the trial on behalf of
the Natioral Board of I'nderwriters. There are five
indictments against llatfield. The first building
burned was the residence of A. Russell. It was an
old house, and was insured for three times its value
by Haifiold, an l Russell received the amount of in
surance. llatfield, as Russell testified, represented
to Kuweit, who had previously borne a good charac
ter, thai his couipaoy was uewly represented there,
and that it was usual in such cases to have two or
three buildings burned, and tho hisses paid promptly,
to operate as an advertisement for the company
Russell objected, 'out was finally overruled, Hatfield
agreeing to pay the premium, and telling him that
he bad talk d the matter all over with the general
tgent of the company, and he would have to sign no
papers and make no affidavits, but was to pay Hat
field SSOO and Green $250 from the proceeds of the
insurance. The policy was granted July first. Be
fore the day the furniture was principally removed
to the loft of Russell's mill, across the street. In
the meantime Green set fire to another building,
and io doing so burned bis hands badly with kero
sene oil. He then told Mrs. Russell that she must
burn her house. She objected, telling hiin that she
was afraid "God wouldn't like it" The house was
burned, snd one month afterward the loss was ad
justed Subsequently the furniture was found in the
mill, the company notified, and all parties were ar
rested, including Mr. and Mrs. R., who made a con
fession on which the indictments were found. The
hotel in which llatfield board, i. kept by D. G. Rit—
ter, was also largely over insured, and subsequently
burned. Hatfield claimed he bad furniture in this
hotel which was lost, and received insurance money
thereon, but it was subsequently ascertained that he
had no furniture burned. The trial will he looked
forward to with interest.— Scranton Republican.
Malaria.— The decayed and decaying vegetation
of newly aettled lands, when damp, exhale a mias
matic poison which, absorbed through the lnngs into
the blood, causes the intermittent fevers and kin
dred diseases, which prevail in our Western States
and Territories. But this great scourge of our rich
alluvial bottoms in the West, is new robbed of its
sting. Dr. Ayer has discovered an antidote which
effectually neutralizes its venom : has combined it
in a remedy—"Ayer's Agne Cure"—which rarely,
or, as some of our neighbors say, never fails It is
reliable both for prevention and cure. With it, men
may live with complete immunity from the malig
nant effluvia which has hitherto rendered many lo
calities almost uninhabitable, Those suffering from
Chilli and Fever may find in it immediate relief,
and those exposed will find sure protection from a-}
tack, by taking it in small quantities as a prevent

NICHOLSON, Jan. 29.
Mr. Editors—After much skirmishing, nnd great
preparajioos, for the past two months, the second
battle between the " Templars" and the license men
has been fought, without any decisive advantage to
either party, resulting in much expense to the coun
ty, and individuals—especially to the prosecutors,
and prosecuted besides engendering much hard
ness and rancorous feeling between neighbors, that
for years heretofore were in peace and harmony in
the pursuit of their several callings. As there can
not be another general engagement until April,
would it not be well for all concerned, to take such
measures u will promote better, and more generous
It must be plain to all conservative and unpreju
diced minds, that to enforce an unpopular law upon
an unwilling people, only makes a bad matter worse.
It having been admitted by Good Templars aud true
temperance men. that the prohibitory law for Wyo
ming County was prematurely enforced upon people
that were not sufficiently educated to receive it—
which has been fully demonstrated | as among the
numerous cases tried, not OD conviction has taken,
place. Under all the circumstances would it not be
better to take measures to get the act repealed, tf
not directly by the legislature, have it referred to a
vote of the people, by an net of the same, sufficiently
early that licenses may be granted at April Session?
in case tbe vote repeals tbe act.
We all profess to be Democratic and ate willing
to be governed in such cases by majorities. It
strikes me that a compromise of the kind will have
a tendency to bring us back to a more healthy posi
Whatever the decision might be, the minority
should be satisfied, and no doubt would conform to
i the will of tbe majority. At all events the better
part of society would have sufficient influence to ef
fect acquiescence. There is no doubt if we are per
| milled to fall back upon the general License Law—
which is sufficiently stringent and guarded for the
mo<-als of community —if it is enforced—that tho
prohibitionists would command the sympathy if nut
tbe assistance in the enforcement of it. Notwith

out-laws, and set down as a drinking loafer, Ac., by

A delightful toilet article— superior to Co*

The Blood owes its red color to m'mute globules
which float in (hat fluid, and contain, in a healthy
person, a large amount of Iron, which gives vitality
to the blood. The Peruvian Syrup supplies the
blood with this vital clement, and gives strength and
vigor to tbe whole system.
Among the many restoratives which nature haa
supplied to relieve the afflictions of humanity, there
is no more favorite one for a certain class of diseasea
than the "medicinal gum" of the Wild Cherry Tree;
but however valuable it is, its power to heal, to
soothe, to relieve and to cure, is enhanced tenfold
by scientific and judici"te combinntion with other
ingredients, in themselves of equal worth. Thia
happy mingling exists to a remarkable degree in

state of he.ii'.h that, after trying medical aid to no

was prevailed upon through the influence of a neigh
