-.-Ilenry Pentico, of Burn
tide township, this county, had one of hi. egi
iroken above the ankle, whll. loadmg a .tick
bf timber on a sled, one day week before last.
ccEST.-Last Wednesday, as Andrew
McBride, of Lawrence township, was coming
down the Chinchaclanioose creek road, haul
in0 tirober, one of the horses slipped and fell
on him, Injuring him considerably. His head
,,.irelr missed striking a couple large stones ;
bid it struck either of them, the fall would no
doubt have proved fatal to our friend Andy.
Contracts Awarded. The contract for the
building of a Methodist church at New Wash
Ington, this county, has been awarded to Lew
is C. Hamroerly for the sura of $1,790 the
building to be finished on the 1st of October
next.' The contract for the erection of a new
church near Campbell's school house, in Bell
township, was awarded to Isaac Haines, Esq.,
of Ansonville, lor the sum of $1,325.
Uorsb Killed. John Snyder, of Bell town
khip, about two weeks ago, lost a fine horse,
valued at $160. He was hauling a spar, to
which he had five span of horses hitched a
pair of fine matched roans at the tongue. One
t)f the horses just in front of the roans stepped
on a handspoke, lying io the road, causing the
nd of it to turn up, and before the team, which
Yvas under rapid headway, could be stopped,
the stick ran some 3 feet into the horse, kill
ing hira instantly.
Fire. Last Friday, about 11 o'clock A. M.,
the store building of Richard Mossop, in this
idace. aeain took fire, and was only by the
nronint and enereetic efforts of our citizens
aved from complete destruction. The fire was
nvidcnllr caused by mico or rats carrying
hiatches between the plastering and weather
boarding, where they ignited, and it is really
surprising that it was at all quenched.
If the flames had gotten the mastery, a large
portion of our town would doubtless have been
destroyed, as a high wind was prevailing at
the time. The loss will be about $125 cov
ered by Insurance.
Fatal Accident. Mr. William Renner, for
Inerly a resident of Mt. Pleasant, in this coun
ty, but latterly a workman in the car-shop of

Mr. Geo. Hawkesworth,i'n Altoona,and
properly cared for, but all to no purpose. He

Standing at Chcrch Doors. We often see
in papers complaint made of men and boys
standing at church doors when the services
aie over, and bitter are the denunciations that
-are showered upon the heads of those who are
addicted to this habit. We know that the
doors of the sanctuary are often blockaded by
impudent fellows, who stare ladies out of coun
tenance and make improper remarks. Such
conduct deserves the severest censure ; it is
ungentlemanly and inexcusable, ret, whilst
we are ever ready to pitch rough-shod into
any male biped who is guilty of such conduct,
wo are inclined to think that much of this
standing around church doors originates in the
habit of ladies huddling together in tho aisles,
nd remaining to. the pews till the male por
tion of the congregation passes out hence, if
:a gentleman has accompanied a lady to church
a husband his wife, or a brother his sister
he is necessarily compelled to wait for her at
Ihe door outside, for which he may be de
nounced as being impudent, a rowdy, &c, or
Jeave tbe lady return home alone, at the risk
of being insulted on the street. But how is
this to be remedied ? To a great extent f fcan
be done by having the males and females sit
together promiscuously, which enables them
to pass out as they entered. This will also
put a stop to much of the gaping around on
the part of young people to spy out their las
sies and beaux a bint that some older heads
might also profit by. The ill-mannered fel
lows who are disposed to loiter around church
doors, with no other object than to stare at
folks, would tLus find their number so small
and o marked that they would fear to do so
clteo, and would soon be driven off entirely.
New Store. Messrs. Jas B. Graham, Jon
athan Boynton and David G. Nivling are open-
ng a new dry goods store in our town. They
have been to the East and purchased a large
stock of Seasonable Goods, which they will bo
ready to commence selling this week. They
occupy the room on Market street lately used
for a store by Wm. F. Irwin.
Improvemext in Harrows. Mr. John Ens-
sell, ot Grampian Hills, this county, has been
granted a patent, by the Department at Wash
ington, for an improvement in harrows. The
improvement consists of four small triangular
harrowsjoined by hinge bolts, so as to form a
diamond shaped harrow. It is well adapted
for uneven or stumpy ground. The simplici
ty of every part, and the low cost of construc
tion, can scarcely fail to secure for Mr. Rus
sell's improvement the commendation of ev
Common Schools of Clearfield County.
From the annual report of the State Superin
dent of Common Schools, for 1859, we Jearn
that the whole number of schools in this coun
ty is 12G ; male teachers 85, female teachers
47 ; whole number of scholars 5,512, of whom
2,957 are males and 2,555 females. The aver
age number of months taught is 4.28. The
cost of teaching each sholar per month is 61
cents. The amount of tax levied for school
purposes is S11,G23 40 for building purpo
ses, $2,885 45. Whole amount of teachers'
wages, $11,939 80. Average salaries of male
teachers per month, $23,89 female, $20,33.
Letter from Morris Township.
Mr. Eihtor : I had the pleasure of attend
ing an exhibition of the school of Miss Annie
Morgan, at Swartz' School house in this town
ship, on Monday evening tho 6th inst.. Not
withstanding the unpleasantness of the evening,
tho scholars were honored with a large audi
ence, who were very orderly and attentive.
They appeared to enjoy the exercises very
much, and appreciate the labors of the teach
er, who had taken so much pains to prepare
their sons and daughters to appear in public
and acquit themselves so honorably indeed.
The performance throughout reflects great
credit upon both teacher and pupils.
By special invitation. Mr. Wm. M. McCul
lough addressed the children upon the subject
of education, and was listened to with marked
attention throughout. Mr M. had formerly
been the teacher in this school, and he remin
ded them of the many pleasant hours spent
with them, in the relation of teacher and pupil
that he looked back to that time with pleas
ant recollections. He pointed out the advan
tages which the youth of the present day en
joy that were denied to their ancestors. He
noticed also the grand mistake, which is only
too frequently made by both children and pa
rents, that pupils can never become scholars
in common schools. lie reminded them that
some of our most eminent men and scholars
had received their education here. He urged
upon the scholars the necessity of perseve
rance under all circumstance?, and appealer!
to the parents to educate their children, and
above all to teach them to revtre the Holy
Sabbath day and attend to its duties. He con
cluded his remarks by saying that if lie had
incited any one to greater deeds and nobler
aims, he asked no better reward. "Let your
motto be onward and upward, and your labor
shall not be in vain, but wreaths of honor shall
crown thy brow and gems shall glitter in the
diadem of fanje."
On Saturday morning, 11th inst., the roof of
Jerry McCartney's house in Kylertown took
fire from the stove-pipe, but the flames were
quenched by the timely ellorts of the citizens
before much damage was done.
The scarlet fever continues to prevail una
bated in this neighborhood, and several cases
of pneumonia have occurred within the past

HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS.
It is a fact that, at some period, every mem
ber of the human family is subject to disease or
disturbance of the bodily functions ; but, with the
aid of a good tonic and the exercise of plain com
mon sense, they may be able bo to regulate the sys
tem as to secure permanent health In order to ac
complish this desired object, the true course to pur
sue is certainly that which will produce a natural
state of things at the least hazard of vital strength
and life. For this purpose, Dr. llostetter has in
troduced to this country a preparation bearing his
name, which is not a new medicine, but one that
has been tried for years, giving satisfaction to all
who have used it. The Bitters operate powerfully
upon the stomach, bowels, and liver, restoring them
to a healthy and vigorous action, and thus, by
the simple process of strengthening nature, ena
ble the system to triumph over disease.
For the cure of Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Nausea,
Flatulency, Loss of Appetite, or Biliouscomplaints,
arising from a morbid inaction of the Stomach or
Bowels, producingCramps, Pysontary,Cholie,Chol-
cra Morbus, Ac, these Ultters hare no equa i.
Diarrhoea, dysentery or flux, so generally con
tracted by new settlers, and caused principally by
the change of water and diet, will be speedily reg
ulated by a brief use of this preparation. Dyspep
sia, a disease which is probably more prevalent,
in all its various forms, than any other, and the
cause of which may always be attributed to de
rangements of the digestive organs, can be cured
without fail by using HOSTETTER'S STOMACH
BITTERS, as per directions on the bottle. For
this disease every physician will recommend Bit
ters of some kind : then why not use an article
known to be infallible? All nations have their
Bitters, as a preventive of disease and gtrcngthen
er of the system in general; and among them all
there is not to be found a more healthy people
than the Germans,from whom this preparation em
anatedt based upon scientific experiments which
have tended to prove the value ot this great pre
naration in the scale of medical science.
Fever ash Ague. This trying and provoking
disease, which fixes its relentless grasp on the bo
dy of man, reducing him to a mere shadow in a
short time, and rendering him physically and men
tally useless, can be driven from the body by the
use of HOSTETTER'S RENOWNED BITTER'S.
Further, none of the above-stated diseases can be
contracted, even in exposed situations, if the Bit
ters are used as per directions. And as they nei
ther create nausea nor offend the palate, and ren
der unnecessary any change of diet or interrup
tion of ordinary pursuits, but promote sound sleep
and healty digestion, and the complaint is remo
ved as speedily as is consistent with the produc
tion of a thorough and permanent cure.
For Person in Advanced Years, who are suffer
ing from an enfeebled consitution and infirm body.
these Bitters are invaluable as a restorative of
strength and vigor, and need only be tried to be
appreciated. And to a mother while nursing these
Bitters are indispensable, especially where the mo
ther's nourishment is inadequate to the demands
of the child, consequently ber strength must yield,
and here it is where a good tonic, such as Uostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, is needed to impart tempo
rary strength and vigor to the system. Ladies
should by all means try this remedy for all ca
ses of debility, and, before : o doing, should ask
their physician, who, if he is acquainted with the
virtue of the Stomach Bitters, will recommend
their use in all cases of weakness.
Caution. We caution the public against using
any of the many imitations or counterfeits, but ask
for llostetter 's Celebrated Stomach Bitters, and see
that each bottle has the words "Dr. J. Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters" blown on the side of the bottle,
and stamped on the metallic cap covering the cork,
and observe thatour autograph signature is on the
label. LsPPrepared and sold by llostetter if Smith,
Pittsburg. Pa., and sold by all druggists, grocers,
and dealers generally throughout the United
States, Canada, South America, and Germany.
