iningttry to be seen on the lair
I.Nunds last week we noticed nothing
that was ui ire deserving of praise than a
nudiber of parlor and cooking stoves,
manufactured by the well known firm of
A. F. Wolfe Co., of Beaver Falls. These
`stoves were entered by the popular hard
ware merchants. Messrs. Bruce LS: Brier
ly, of Beaver Falls, which should be a
sufficient recommendation of their mer
its. Among the many stoves dealt in by
this firm we might mention the follow
ing, which attract especial admiration
and praise, from the be..t. judges : The
"Howard Improves," for w 03.1 or coal,
a large ornatne :tat cooking stove, which
has a splendid reputation wherever it is
known. The "Ida" parlor heating stove
als - 3 possesses many advantages and is a
, well constructed stove. Tine "R adiator,' '
an office or parlor heating stove is also
neatly constructed an 3 is unsurpassed
for an offi - cct or parlor stove. Winter is
c):ning on and a g)3.1 ca3kin; and beat
ing stove is an article of indispensable
value to every g)od house keeper, and
the place t 3 buy such is at. Bruce & Brier
ly's hardware Store, Beaver Falls, Pa.
Something for the Ladles.—La

one of the largest, finest, and most fash

to which their attention is especialy invit

are new in this part of the country really

In addition lade will find full lines of

Fathers and mothers, look out , for

have gathered around you. Where are
they then Are they at home,' at the
pleasant, social tireside, or are they run
nitt, :he streets? Are they receiving a
street education? If so. take care!
There is scarcely anything so destructive
to their,4orals as running abroad at
night, and most especially is this true in
our own towns about the mouth of the
Beaver, where drunkards reel along our
streets unmolested by the authorities,
and where street fights and drunken
brawls are almost nightly occurrences.
Under the cover of darkness your chil
dren acquire the education of crime; they
learn to be rowyish, if not absolutely
vicious, they catch up loose talk, bear
sinful thoughts, and rapidly become
reckless and riotous. If you would save
them from ruin, see to it that night finds
them at home. Parents should solemnly
I ponder this matter and do all in their
power to make bone attractive, so that
boys would prefer it to runni-ng the

many friends and reared a happy,family.
The change in the busi3ss of the' Ohio
river, iu ccnisequeuise of) the It tilioad
system drawing from it largely the car
rying tradti, made another change in his
business, and finally ho found himself
installed in one of the Depaitineuts at
Washington, where notwithstanding his
a;e,:his early b&iness habits made him
acceptable and effective. ‘Sevetouflue
ment, and strict atteation to business,
however, told upon a c3nstitution en
feebled by advancing year and broken
by a recent attack of small-pox. A. biat
six or seven weeks ago ha came on a
visit to his relatibns here, in the hope of
a restoration to health ; but his malady
had taken a tight grasp upon his vital
powers, and he died at the house of his
brothe'r-in-law, -- William Henry, Esq., in
Fallsto'il, on' Sunday night, September
21st, in, Ixe 72d year of hie age. Always a
moral and upright - man, his later life was
crowned with the grace of religion, and
he died a follower of Christ.
1 ni. Bea.
He had deposited two of his children in
the old graveyard, and always thought
of Beaver as his house. His return and
death here bring to mind Goldsmith's
lines :
-In all my travels round this world of We.
In all my griefs—And 03d has given nay E hare.-
I still had hopes tai latest hoar* to c.rovni..; \ r -
Amidst these humble bowerSto lay me down
And as a hare whom holands and horns puma,
Pants to the place from W ., ?enCe at first she flew,
1 still had hopes -7-my long vexation!, past.-
liere to return—anti die at, home at last." '2 i
As one .who knew him well I hii.ed
thought it proper to notice - his • death in
terms, not of fulsome eulOgy, but of just
praise, that those who remember him
when a citizen among - u ,
.may kuCw of
his departure to a higher sphere, and pay
a passing tribute to his memory. „
"Soct us"
People of all creeds are holding con
ventions these times. Twit may be ex
pected as long as personal free tliluking iq
indulged in to any great extent; but who
would have supposed• that a "Fat.• Nitvrel
Convention" would have- been held in
those,"piping timet of peace?" Yet such
was the case. At PUt-in Bay on the 10:b
of Septetnber, a lot of fat men did assem
ble, and John Templeton of Swanton,
Ohio, was President, and H. E. 0. Hazen
was Secretary and weigher. Among the
hundred or so of "light weights" pres
ent, the most remarkable were John
Templeton, aforesaid, who raised the
beam at 534: pounds; I:fr Risler, of New
ark, Ohio, 3130 pounds, Nelson Bristol,
Florence, Ohio, 325 pounds; D. A. Shoe
maker, Waterloo, Indiana, 320 pounds,
and quite a respectable number drawing
over 2. 7 i0 pounds. Mrs. J. Homill, of De
troit, who was in attendance, 225 pounds,
aged forty-six years, and is the mother of
eighteen children, the youngest of which
is only eighteen months old.
