The case that occupied the boardsall
afternoou Monday was that of the Com
nioiiwealth vs. Augustus Schropp. Mr.
SchroPD was chanted upon ath of
James 1). Williams with assault aud
battery; carrying i-oncealed deadly
weapons, and with wontonly pointing
a revolver at the pnsecutor.
From the evidence it seems the de
fendant and his wife were at one time
on the stage in the cajmcity of actor aud
actress, i They then became profession
al musicians and tiring of that drifted
into Juniata county where they are now
fanning and raising poultry. The pros
ecutor and defendant at tbe time of the
trouble lived neighbors in Fermanagh
township and had had trouble over the
trespassing of prosecutor's cattle on de
fendant's land Tbe consequences
was bad blood between the neighbors.
Tbe defendant and his wife when on
tlie staud gave evidence of their stage
training. Mrs. Schropp was partk-u
larly bright and smooth upon the staud
and her repartee to questions of Com
monwealth counsel on cross examina
tion was entertaining to the audience,
who are not often treated to an eloen-
tionarv entertainment iu the court
room. The evidence showed defen
dants had penned up 12 sheep belong
ing to prosecutor and which were found
tresitassinir on defendant's land. De
fendant notified prosecutor to come and
set his sheep and pay the damages,
When the prosecutor came he demand
ed six dollars before he would allow the
sheep to leave. An altercation follow
ed, and while the evidence was very
contradictory, it was not denied that
defendant bit tbe prosecutor a stinging
blow at the base of his right ear, the de
fendant contending that he struck the
prosecutor while the latter was trying
to get into the stable where tbe sheep
were locked up, and the prosecutor
claiming be was hit while his back was
turned aud he was iu the act of leav
ing defendant's property in pursuance
of an order to leave. After tbe prosecu
tor received the blow, he announced
his intention of whipping the defend
ant and made an effort to take, off his
coat, when the defendant drew a revol
ver, and in tbe language of Mrs.
Schropp -flourished it in the ah-," but
did not point it at tbe prosecutor, who
Immediately left tbe defendant's prop
erty at the sight of the revolver apd af
terwards recovered his sheep by writ
of replevin. Tbe jury found tbe defend
ant guilty of assault ami battery and
currying concealed deadly weapons
Mr. Schropp was sentenced to pay., a
fine of 910 and the costs of prosecution.

up the case of the Com. vs. James A.
McMullin of Lack Twp. McMullin
was charged with attempting to Influ
ence Cyrus Jacobs a grand juror at tbe
February term of Court.
At that term of court a case M as pre
sented to the Grand Jury in which John
Clark of Lack was the prosecutor and a
man named Lauigau was the defend
ant. Juror Jacobs received a letter signed
by John Wilson of Lack Twp., urging
him to use his influence with his fel
low jurors to have the case against I.aii
igan ignored and the costs put upon tbe
Mr. Jacobs called the attention of the
court to tbe letter. An investigation
was instituted. John Wilson whose
name was signed to the letter, denied
that he wrote it, claimed it was a forg-
ery and bad McMullin arrested charged
witn emnracery ana iorRery. i w wiiw iicseis wiu oe soici aunng ine -con-were
framed and the grand jury at the I tinuanee of the Exposition and wi!l
April term found true bills in both cases.
The commonwealth put up a strong
caxe against McMullin although it was
entirely circumstantial and the defense
onsited almost entirely in an attempt
to show that the defendant McMullin
was unable to write. The case went
to the jury on this Wednesday morn
ing. At 2.30 p m., the jury rendered a
verdict, "not guilty, but pay tbe costs."

Hm not God given a talent or tai

five talents, to another two. and to
another one; "Ti f very man accord-

created every person for some pur-
pose, but woe to tbem who bnry
their talent or talents in idleness.
In my travels I bad an opportuni
ty to speak with a man, which sug
gested' the above title. Hearing of
him among some of his neighbors I
went to see him one evening. He
greeted me very friendly and invited
me in By bis appearance one wouia
suppose him to be among those who
seem to be unnoticed in tbe wona.
He lives all alone, being a bachelor,
in a large stone house. Entering the
house I found no carpet on tbe floor,
but to my surprise tbe one side of
the room was almost filled from floor
to ceiling with books, magazines and
papers. He is a graduate in civil en
gineering from one of the colleges in
Philadelphia, and served as a naval
officer for many years, but now lives
a retired life.
Any literary man would enjoy
spending hours inspecting the var
ious old books. Some dated from
the ninth century and the most pop
ular magazines in print with others
now almost unknown all carefully
arranged and preserved. In other
rooms be showed me many ol nis
oldest books, which be had b to red
sway. On the floors of these rooms
were numerous daily and weekly pa
pers neatly arranged from the date
received. Some of these papers are
so old that time has faded the print
almost beyond one's power to read
them. Having spent some time in
showing one bis collection of books
and papers, I enquired about his
manner of living, since his appear
anoe showed signs of delicate health.
We then entered another room
where I was shown enoagh canned
fruit to last any ordinary family
many years. By this I knew his
principal diet was fruit. He attends
bis own garden, does bis own noose
work, which some women would be
ashamed to compete with only for
tbe want of carpet, and cans most of
In education and knowledge of all
tbe great modern subjects in life, he
is equal to many ol our great men.
His conversation is very forcible aod
glows with power of clearness in the
explanation of any difficult subject.
With all bis education and weaun ne
seems to be satisfied that it was all
given for self gratification and makes
no effort to use it lor tbe beneni ot
mankind. I questioned him as to
the responsibility resting upon one
so talented, bat be gave me no satis
factory answer 'and cared little to
speak further of it.
As I left this man the parable of
the talents given by Christ in the
twenty-fifth chapter of Matthew flash-
ea across my mina.
In such thought and prayerful
meditation I send tbis little descrip

to some wayfaring man, who may be

A curious species of Insect Is the
trapdoor spider, whose uest consists of
a tube excavated in the earth to the
depth of six or eight Inches. It Is al
ways lined with silk, and it Is cloaed
with an ingeniously constructed door.
One sort of door closes Into the nest
like a cork In a bottle, another Is as
thin as a piece of paper.
In all cases tbe door opens outward,
and when tbe nest is placed, as It usu;
ally Is, on a sloping bank. It opens up
ward, so that there Is no fear of its
gaping. The object of -the trapdoor Is
to conceal the nest, and consequently
It Is always made to resemble the gen
eral surface of tbe ground. Sometimes,
however, sn enemy attempts to open
the door, and then the Inmate braces
Its legs against the sides of the nest
and holds It as fast as possible.
Still other spiders have Inner doors
besides outer, so tbat If their first de
fense be carried they may have anoth
er behind which to retreat. More cari
ous still Is the Ingenuity of tbe branch
trapdoor-that Is to say, a door tbat
opens from tbe main tunnel of the
nest Into a side branch, which tbe
stranger could discover, since there is
nothing to distinguish It from any oth
er part of the main nest. So, then. If
an enemy should effect an entrance
the lawful occupant of the nest can
quietly slip Into the side branch, close
'tbe door and there remain In security
while the Intruder wonders what has
become of ber. Our Animal Friends.

A CAT THAT FISHES.
The editor has a black tabby cat,
that is a rarety in the feline family.
Upon a number of occasions the edi
tor and members of his family,
found large cat-fish near tbe pig stye,
where tabby has a family of joung
kittens At first tbe supposition on
our part was tbat the cat bad stolen
the fish from some of tbe neighbors,
but diligent inquiry failed to give
us any light on tbe subject, while tbe
frequency of tbe occurence led us to
the conclusion that she caught the
fish by some means or other, and
when on Monday morning we found
cat and kittens regaling, themselves
oS a large green bull-frog, we were
more convinced than ever, that our
theory was correct. We at once
made inquiry and learned from
Charles I Miller that he . frequently
ssw a black cat up at the old basin,
which is beta? filled no and which
contains a number of fish. .There is
no donbt bat that puss sits on the
bank and watches until a fish comes
out in the shallow water, when she
pounces down on it and carries it
home to her little family. Selins-
