story was given to our reporter,as follows: _
A servant girl (Celestia Mott), , employed by
Mr.ubbard, has of late complained of hearing
SOT ;one about the houge, and thought they
were,burglars. Alr. Hubbard ',purchased' a re
vdli-and taught her how to use it and she
said she would fire it it she had occasion. ' On
WedLeSday last she had washed and hung out
the family clothing on the root -to dry, over the
re iidence, frt tbe • Wilson Block. One of the
' boarders told her in the ; evening that she had
better take in her clothes as 'there' had been a
person around the building Who looked suspi
cious. She went out, and took in all that were
dry, leaving the rest. , Jlit about 9 ,o'clock she
heard some one on the roof and taking her, re
volver ascended and found a large man taking
clothes from the line. She spoke to him: and
receiving no answer spoke again. Getting no
replY, she says. "I will give you occasion' to
answer," and fired. The min disappeared down
a ladder to an. adjoining roof, and the plucky
girl made no alarm, but returned to her room
and went to bed. •
At about 2 o'clock in the morning she was
awakened by some one at her window and
rising up, saw'the man she had shot at "on the
roof, prying up the , window. Ho raised it and
suddenly` put his arm in: and shot at the girl.
She at once pointed her at the window,
and fired striktng the man, she thinks, in the
breast. He says, "My god, I am shot," and
dist.ppeared. The shots awoke the household,
who on searching outside found a pool of blood ,
on the roof under her window. They "tracked
the blood to the ground, but they lost the trail.
There is Po clue as yet to the robbers. The
girl's parents are very much excited, and want
her to leave Owego and go to her hono near
Campville,, but she Eays she is not aftaid, but
that she can shoot as well as the robbers can
and will stay where she is:—Binghamton limes.

pressive services of that occasion, a General
Order will be issued at an early date calling.the
organization together at That time and giving
plans and details for the occasion.
IL The various companies of .the county

fect their organization,and send in their orders
for guns, that they may be procured in time for
use on the Fourth: This &mit be done on or

The following from the fast number of the
School Jouynal will cause ofir'People to put on,
their thinking caps. The time is ;not fitt distant
when the subject will be agitated in all sec
tionsi L.
There seems to be a - growing ' . disposition in
many quarters to furnish text-books entirely
without charge to all the children in our Public
schools. The experiment has been tried in
.many cities and country distFicts, and in one or
more whole . States, and wherever tried it seems
to give satisfaction. Among its advantages are:
1. That it cheapens very greatly the cost - of
books. Some estimate the saving at one-half,
even as much as three-fourths.
2. That changes' can be made in books, when
needed, without additional cost.
S. That the nooks can be made absolutely
uniform in the schools without the annoyance
that sometimes exists when parents are requir
ed to purchase them.
4. That teachers can supply pupili, and in
troduce new studies without the usual text
took difficulties.
The objection that "the purchasing of text
books by the directots increases the expense of
public edueation is more than met by shoiiig
that ,thh3 increale is Much more than compensa
ted for by the,consequent 'diminished private
exppnae. •
The blither objection that the books will be
'injured or lost is well answered by.the fact that
-all experienced teachers agree that children can
be trained to take better care of 'books belong
to the district than of their own. '
• The question in all bearings is Well worthy

&iniidetation ofschool boards and teachers.

In the report of . the Maine Point;logical So
ciety we find au account of a' novel method of
training the tomato , plant. Stakes, seven or
eight feet long, were inserted in the ground the I
last of May three feet apart, in a warm, shel
tered location, and strong' tomato plants were
procured, which had, been started under glass,
and :containing°tutor two blossom buds. These
were planted near the stakes. The plant Ras
then tied to the stake with listing, and all the
side branches' which bad pushed it the :miller
or angles formed by the seperation of the
leaVes, were pinched or cut out with scissors,
so es to compel the plant to grow on a single
stem ; and every week during the samba, these
branches were removed, and -the stems, from
time to time; were tied to the stake. When a
sufficient number of clusters had been firmed,
the remainder were removed, so as to , concen
trate the whole energies of the plait to the
growth and ripening of the remaining toma
toes:; and the heaviest branches were sup=
potted by tying them to the stakes. As the re
sult, the ripening of the tomato by this, method
is accelerated, and - its flavor is improved, be
cause every part of the plant is exposed to the
free action of the sun and air. -It as not soiled
by coming in 'contact with the ground ; it is
not BO apt to decay, and more ripe tomatoes
can be raised in ,a limited space ; but it requires
constant care and industry.

An instance of appirent succes" in the treat
ment of thtce children bitten by a rabid dog is
reporied from Marietta, Pi.' The dog also bit
a heifer, a tow, and three dogs. These four
animals all died of hydrophobia. The phyid
clan in attendence upon: the children, Dr. JOhn.
Cameron, .of. Wilmington, Del., had been im
pressed by the success of Dr. Bussion's method,
as described in the Abeille Medicate, of , treat
ing hydrophobia by means of vapor bathe. As
the nearest practiCal approach to
.such treat-
ment Dr. Cameron took the children to Phila.
and there subjected thew to the Turk
ish baths daily for two weeks. Although the
wounds were very severe, they healed with=
out difficulty, and no symptoms of the dreaded
malady haive been manifested.. - Hydrophobia,
it is said, does not break out before the seventh
day from,the bite. The interval is quite suf
ficient to give the chance id most instances for
the patient to be take.n to some Turkish bath
estatdishment ; and hence, if that method of
treatment is.effectual hydrophobia may be
classed among preventable diseases.

At a meeting to consider "Woman's Work
and Needs," held at Steinway Hall, N. Y., a
few evenings since,soine very sensible addreSses
were made, among them one by Mrs. Eage who
said that the cause of the degredation of labor
and of woman's labor in particular, was slave
ry. Slowly the value of woman's services are
being acknowledged. Atid women'are indebt
ed to the enactments of 1848, giving them con
trol of property, and 1852, giving them power
to receive and hold their .own :wages, for the
industrial p&sitioni they now , hold. France and
Switzerland hive recognized the value of labor
Germany engages a quarter of a million in oc
cupations formerly quite monopolized by men.
The results of such employment have been
beneficial to consumers 'and to the women
themselves, and , greater benefits will recur
when more women enter into business fot
themselves to employ as as be employed.
She lamented the fact that women were paid
less for . the same services than men,but in spite
of tbat fact, the final result; ebe thought,wo uld
be beneficial, and cheap labor, that now seems the curse of women, will prove their
blessing. Their rates of pay are slowly advanc
ing, and with their employment they gain in-,
dependence; the political result of which can
easily be imagined.
The Pennsylvania•raitroad company, has re
cently introduced on • freight trains a 'new sig
nal. It consists of a flashing light fastened on
the rear car, that indicates the speed and dui
tance of a train, and shows whether it is at rest
or in motion. This light is of two colors, one
of them being red and the other white, and , are
placed on what is known as the "cabOose," so
that they may be seen in both directions on the
line. A simple device for hiding the light at in
tervals is affixed to each lamp so that it may be
made to "flash" or alternately appear land 019•
appear, and by suitable gearing this is connec
ted with one of the axles of the car. While the
car is at rest the lightrare steadily visible;
when the train moves the lights flash once for
each revolution of thd wheels, and thus its
movements and actual speed can be easily esti
mated Ls far as the lights can be.seen.
