The Datcheller de Doris' Show.
According to announcement the Batcheller
& Doris combined museum, menagerie and
cil l tus, put in an appearance on Tuesday last.
AnYmmenso throng greeted them. Early in
the morning people brgan coming in town—
walking, in wagons and on the trains on the
different roads. By 10 o'clock one-Of the
largest crowds that ever greeted a show in
Towanda was gathered here.
It' was after seven in the, morning before
they began unloading the the cages, horses,
and other material from the cars, and conse
quently it was a little lite before tho grand
street procession began to move; but it was
one of the best ever shown in town.' The
jubilee singers on top of one of the wagons
as they passed through the streets was a
novel and highly pleasing feature.. There
were two bands in the procession.
The afternoon performance began at 2 and
the evening at 7 o'clock. Tho Immense can
vass tents were crowded in the afternoon and
evening. The first feature of the . perfor
mance Prince Satsumas, the Japanese jug
gler, was excellent. Romeo Sebastian,
the bareback rider, (an old favorite of To
wanda, circus-Roers,) was on hand and prov
ed that ho was improving every season. - The
three Russian Athletes were magnificent in
ladder specialty, and showed great skill and
strength. The feat of firing a human-being
from a cannon was performed for the first
time in Towanda, and was the main feature
of the circus performance. Taken altogether
the entire entertainment was good, and all
were well satisfied.
The menagerie was large and attractive

Seth Green has been fishing for: trout in

one of the twelve trout he saw opened con
tained food in the stomach. In his own
words: "It was their Lent. When you
caught ono it was stab that was no Christian,
one that refused to obey the titles of the
church and paid the penalty. Fish have laws
among themselves and doctor themselvei

This popnlar store•has been crowded with
customers since Mrs Madden's re turn from
New York last week. This is nothing new,
however, as her taste is so widely hnown that
her patrons come from many neighboring
towns to avail themselves of her judgment in
the selection of bets and bonnets. The flow
ers; are lovely and the ribbons almost as pret
ty in effect as the flowers. The shaded rib
bons are especially nelisitid handsome.
Eleganeleathers are also much worn. • The
steel la4es and ornaments are fashioable and
unique. The real cut steel is too expensive
to become very common, hence it will doubt
less be worn fur some time by those who can
afford to gratify their tastes. Mrs. Madden
keeps a large variety of misses and children's
sun hats, in all the popular styles.

There were several noticeable features of
the programme of exercises worthy of epe

monument erected in honor of comrades
whose graves are unknown, Was a sublime
conception, and the ceremonies attending
its decoration / were grandly impressive. The 1
singing 13,f the Male Quartette added Much
to the int est of the 'occasion. The thirty
eight you g school girls, ,representing the
rearnited States,-in their rehearial of "The
114.4:rnited Ellates," did their part well and
deserve much praise. The Germania Band,
without whose - services the ceremonies would
have been tame' indeed, merit the thanks
and encouragement of our citizens. The
fervent. earnest address of Rev. C. T. Hallo
well, at the Hall, was replete 'with patriotic
sentiment and inspiring thought. It was
eminently befitting the day and the occasion.
In carrying our patriotism to the graveyard
where sleep those who fell forthe grandest
cause of all" the ages—grandest in motive and
grandest in result, we are cheered by listen
i ngto,such words._ as were voiced by the or
ator of,the day on this occasion_. In con
templating the causes of thesanguinary
struggle,:the speaker brought vividly to the
memory of his audience the 'heroic valor of
the Union soldier, through whose self-sacri
ficing devotion was cemented with their
precious blood, the union of States, and
made the Republic what it never was before,
a Republic of Freemen. Pbey caught the
toppling Union and established it on a' now
and enduring foundation as . a Nation among
the nations of the earth. These truths, em
bodying the real issues of 1 the struggle,
should be kept alive in the minds of the gen
erations, to whom, as a royal heritage are
bequeathed the blessitigs resulting from the
war for the Union against organized treason
and rebellion. - ,
At the close of the memorial address, Mr.
LeGrand Brewer, recited- in a most im
pressive Manner that patriotic poem by. Will
Carlton --` , Cover them• over with beautiful

Patronize Some inetihttions
.. Patronize home institutions. By so doing
you build up and maintain your ow town,
add wealth to your own commnni , and
eventually-receive back a good portiOn if not
all the money you expend at home with use.
Any other policy in the long' run is suicidal
nd is sure to recoil -iipon yourself. A man
'can better afford to pay a higher price for an
article purchased at beim than to send his
money away from his own town even if by so
doing a slight saving is at Gest made.. Money'
sent out of a community seldom returns, and
if it does a long time must intervene. A dol
lar spent in your own Own remainsAhere
and you stand au equal chance of getting it
again. Be loyal to your hone merchants;
they accommodate you when you need it and
fair play would-say stand by 'them. Special
inducements are frequently. offered by for,
eign merchants just for the purpose of draw- .
ifig your trade, but in the long.run they must
make their average per gent,' and they. will
make it off from their customers. Stand by
i your home mechanics; give them yOur work,
and they kill feel called upon to give you
their patronage. Inculcate 'this principle
upon yourself and strive to induce of hereto
do the same regardless of pol Hies, national
ity, creed or color. Temporary ad vantage or
alight gain is often reaped by baying away
from home—but the inevitable result of this
practice generally folloWed will be as dine-
E. T. BC110!VN,
trove to one as to another. Bear in mind
one fact—that which ben elite the individual
eventually benefits every._ individual in that
community. We make 4iitia - remarka gen
eral, and yet ask every reader _to apply them
pent onally. Patronise home institutions.

Schnieder at 11 o'clock a. ni.„ where we- took
dinner in a beautiful grove, and the gentle
men of the party spent the remainder of the
day up to 5 o'clock p. in., in fishing. Hero
we took about one hundred handsome trout.
ladies meanwhile enjoyed themselves in
the shad the the grand forest, watching the
1 riPP ' u waters of the beautiful-, stream,- un-
til the time or our departure arrived. At
five o'clock, our party, all in the best of spir
its, stepped into our wagons and started for
Leßoy, where all arrived safely at 8 o'clock in
the evening. This brought us out of the
wilderness and mountainous countiy, and en
ded our "roughing it."
',The entire' party enjoyed the thr e days we
wore out in the happiest manner. the ladies
especially contributed their fall sh re toward
making the trip a happy mice ess. nr friends
of Leßoy, who made up a part of our party,
are entitled to many thanks for the contribu
tion of more than their share to tbe.comfort
and enjoyment of the excursion. -':-
In going out we passed up the rugged .old
South Moubtaln, by the East Canton road.
This is the easiest approach to the mountain's
summit of any of the several passes winding
their way at difterent points up its towering
steep. In returning we came down by way
of the • pass from "Cold Spring" settlement
to Leßoy. As we came out on the brow .of
the majestic old mountain- overlooking the
valley of the Towanda Creek and the country
north, one of the grandest panoramic views
ire ever beheld was presented. It is - worth a
journey to that - point on a clear day to behold
the enchanting view there unfolded to the
eye. The pass down the mountain winds
along its face zigzsg.-a distance of two miles
or more_ before reaching the base. At some
points the decline is at an angle of_ thirty de
grees, requiring trusty horses, good drivers
and sate wagons to make the descent with
safety. Our horses, behaved admirably well,
and brought us through -safelY. - The , road
is comparatively smooth, and for a mountain
pass is in good order. We cannot-close this
hasty sketch, without thanking our friends
in Sullivan and Lycoming for their generous
hospitality and.kind regard for on pleasure
and comfort. - Sometime we shall hope to
repeat the excursion -and enjoy three days

The' Queen City Suspender Company, of

troducing their new Stocking Supporters for
Ladies and Children, and their unequaled
Skirt Suspenders for ladies. None should be
without them; our leading physicians recom

These goods are - manufactured.by ladies who
have made the wants of ladies and children
a study, and they ask us to refer them to
some reliable and energetic lady to introduce
them in,this county, and w& certainly think ,
that an earnest solicitation in every house
bold would meet with b ready. resp owe, and
that a determined woman could make a
handsome salary and have the exclusive
agency for this county. We advise some
lady who is in need of-employment to send
to the Company her name and, ddress, and
mention this paper. Address Queen City

Pea are frequently preceded by a sense of
weight in the back, loins and lower part of
the Abdomen, causing the patient to suppose
he ibis some affection . of the kidneys or
neighboring organs. At times symptoms of
indigestion are present as flatulency. uneasi
ness of the stomach. etc. A moisture like
perspiration producing a very disagree able
itching, par ticularly at night after getting
warm in bed. is a very common attendant.
Internal, External and Itching Piles yield at
once on the application of Dr. Bosanko's Pile
Remedy, which acts directly upon the parts
affected, absorbing the Tumors, allaying the
intense Itching, and affecting a permanent
cure where all other remedies have failed.
Do not delay until the drain on the system
produces permanent disability. but try it
and be cured. Price, 50 cents. Ask your

it of him, we will send it, prepaid, on recipt

seat of his disease.soon changed, and his last
days were attended with great veering, in
which everythinithat medical skill and lov

was done to stay the onward march of death;
but all in viin. God called him and we had
to give him; p. 0, it was touching to see
those grief-stricken parents, those agonized
brothers and loving Miters bending over his
sick bed, so • anxious to' alleviate his suffer

should yeas= be again restored to her
throne. I But -reason did not return; and he
-died without ',knowing whose hands cared
for him 'during his bud days. The funeral
was held at - his beautiful home, and the very
large concourse of Mends and neighbors
who filled the gracious rooms, and were ac
commodated with seats beneath the trees
in the yard, bore testimony to his worth and
nobility of character, and the esteem' n
which he and his familywere held by all who

truthful, kind and obedient to his teacher,
he walla general favorite in .school and on

his good, generous nature '.was best known
and appreciated. His eldest brother finding
the work of a farm unsuited to his tastes and
health, had chosen a mercantile life, and his
other brother. just finishing his studies 'at
the High School, Frank bad seemed to fee
that so much was depending on him, and
