After the shock a thorough ventilation was

traction furnished by two woven wire beds in
an upper chamber and tke piano in the par

The ikuit - of Sophia Marsden against her
son, William, C. Marsden, Of Towanda, in
which she sought to estahlislOhe validity of
an alleged will of her huscand, John Marsden,
dated May 6, 1874, was finally' given to a
Philadelphia jury on Thursday morning last,
in Court of Common Pleas No. 1. The trial.
of the case has occupied the attention of the'
Court for the past nine days, and on Wednes
day, with the exception of a short recess; the
case lasted from 10 in the morning until 8 at
night. The will of 1874; under which the
widow claims, gives two farms in Sullivan
County to the sod,i the' defendant; appoints
the widow executrix, and leaverabsolutely to
her the remainder of all the real and person
al estate. This will, it is claimed, was a pure
forgery. A vast amount of testimony was
' taken:at the trial as to whether or not the
paper-of 1874 was in Mr. Marsden't hand
writing, His Honor Judge Biddle in charg
iog the jury reviewed the testimony at length:
and instructed c them substantially that - the
paper of R 874, purporting to be John Mars
den's himdwriting, was a forgery;-and that
the will of 1866, bequeathing the property of
the testator to his son, Wm. C. Marsden was
genuine. This gives to Wm. C. Marsden
valuable real and personal estate in Philadel

A Remarkable Cure Performed by Nature
after Thtity-seren Years.
. Mr. Cowles, referred to in the following ar
ticle, from the Democrat and Chronicle, was
for some time a compositor on the REPUBLI
CAN. At that time be was so deaf that it Was
with difficulty he could be made to hear what'
was. said to him. Ho could Only be made to
understand by talking very loudly Into his oar.
His restoration to hearing is a most remark
able naturalcure. He is a brother of H. A.
and A. F. Cowles of this place.
"Charles A. Cowles is a t compositor
who has for nearly a year been -lem
ployed in the Democrat and Chronicle
printing office, (Lyons,' N. Y.) says that
paper.. He has been afflicted for thirty-seven
years with serious and increasing deafness.
Sunday Evening while eating his 'supper, he
suddenly began to hear sounds which he had
not heard since the fourth year of age.
when he was rendered deaf by severe attack
of scarletlever. The ticking of' a clock, the
ordinary conversation of people near him and
other like sounds fell upon" his hearirig last
evening, bringing with them h grateful hope
that his years of deafness were drawing to a
close, if not already at an end. This certain
ly appears to be one of the most remarkable
instancea of a complete restoration on the
part of Nkture herself, independent of medi
cal or surgical agencies. Hr. Cowles lea man
whose mind is well stored with information,
although it was impossible for him to get
even a common school education when a
child. — lie was too deaf to acquire any bene
fit from attending an . ordiniry school, in
which he could not have heardlne. leacher's
instructions, unless they'-', were screamed in
his ear. Consequently, 'whet' only eleven
years of age, he . went into iF printing office
to learn his trade. - and acquire= an education
at the same time. In attaining both of these
objects ho haii been entirely successful, hay
inw worked m some of the beet newspaper
printing houses in the country. He says he
feels very happy in this period of restoration
to hearing; and he only hopes it may be pro
longed. He has never beat able to hear a
sermon, a lecture or other of the entertain
ingiand instructive addresses to which the
most of mankind may listen when
they ' He is to be heartily congratulat
ed' upon. this: favorable . and remarkable
The hay crop promises to be heavy this
year. For the proper curing of this very im
portant imp, a good and reliable wheel rake
is a necessity. The Tompkins County Lead
er is just the machine that will please every
time. It is changeable from a one to a two
horse rake, or the "contrary. It will be found
valuable as a tedder, for raking light or
heavy,,cured or half, cared grass, on rough
or smooth laud, for bunching heavy wind
rows, for raking grain in the swath into gav
els for binding and for gleaning Windsor
ly g, ain fields.
It be used at will either as a hand or
foot dump, and controlled by-foot as well as
by barid. The teeth can be set to run at any.
desired pitch upon the ground, or carried at
my desired heigth from , the ground. It is
the cheapest first-class rake. 'Strong and
durable. It will bear any bard test in use in
competition with any-other rake. If you in
tend to buy a wheel rake this season, you will
be wise it you will give the Leader a trial.

At the late World's Fair held in Melbourne,
the jury awarded the only 'First degree of
merit" to the Davis Vertical Feed Sewing
Machine. • On this,seven other companies
appealed and the committeo.appointed three
experts to make a full examination and re
port. . The experts after having the different •
machine° taken .spars and pat up again and
worked in their presence reported as
follows: •'The Davis had the least number
of pieces by over 30. The largest number of
hardened steel parts in' any other machine
was 4, in tne Davis 11. The greatest varia
tion of the Davis shuttle in the entire bobbin
was 1-$ of an ounce; some of them 2 ounces.
In speeding machines the Davis made 150
stitches more than the fastest. Thirty min
utes was given to make different samplei of
work. The Davis made twenty-three (23)
and much larger and nicer; The largest made
by any of the others was seven (7) the next

Very tit manner the graves of 'fallen - soldiers
buried in the cemetery at that place— Bev.
Netherton, pastor of the Orwell M. E. Church,
and Hon. Henry Gibbs, made remarks
very suitable for the occasion.,
:At North Orwell, the citiZoni, under the
lead of Comrade D. S. Eleardman, very ap
propriately decorated the soldiers graires in
their cemetery. • Ceremonies at these two
places concluded the comrades and many
others, according to
_previous arrangement,
came down hero to take part in the exercises.
The attendance was much larger thin many
had anticipated—A considerable number of
people could not find room inside the church
nor secure a place on the outside, near the
open doors and windows, where they could
hear the speaker.
The weather proved to be very fine'. though
about noon we were strongly threatened
with rain. Every arrangement was carried
out in excellent order and in a very impres
sive and solemn manner.
The Post decorated in all over ninety 14
diers graves. Stevens Post, under the lea
dership of their worthy Commander B. G.
Wilmot, deserves much credit for the man

and-solemn. duty. Vice Commander E. C.

it was no small task.

Our sincere wish is that Stevens Post will
have the tumor. to conduct many Decoration
