REV. W. P. TURNER, the newly ap
pointed pastor of the M. E. congrega
tion of this place, held his first services
last Sunday, preaching two very ex
cellent sermons, the one in the morn
ing being ou "The eternal reign of
Christ," and in the evening discoursed
on Christ's injunction to his disciples,
"Go teach all nations." Both of these
discourses were scholastic efforts, and
were well received by large audiences.
We welcome the reverend gentleman
to our town, and hope that his resi
dence among us may be a pleasant one.
THE Pittsburgh Commercial-Ga
zette of Monday last, in referring to the
conviction of the Messrs. Iliddle in
the Quarter Sessions of Allegheny
county, and the finding of a true bill
in the U. S. District Court against
the Cashier of the Montrose National
Bank, says, very truly, that these
"Furnish a warning to all hank of
ficers and directors who use the funds
of the bank for their individual interest.
♦ * The lesson which this verdict
teaches is, that there is a false and !
' dangerous standard of morality among
bank officers, which becomes abso
lutely criminal when tested under the
severe, though just and necessary re
strictions, which the law has thrown
around those who deul with the money
of shareholders and depositors."
First Snow.
On Friday last, October 24, we had
the first fall of snow here for this sea-
Bon, being quite a little snow storm
and making the weather cool. Last
year, 1878, the first fall here was on
October 28; on the year before that,
1877, the first fall was on November
2nd, and on the year before, 1876, the
first fall was on October 10th. This
is as far back as we have kept the
How to Vote.
There are but two officers to vote
for in this county on next Tuesday, a
State Treasurer and a county Jury
Commissioner. Therefore there are
but two tickets to be made up hy the
voter when he comes to vote. One
will be headed "State" and have the
name of the candidate for State Trea
surer thereon. The other will he
beaded "County" and have the name
of the candidate for Jury Commissioner
thereon. These tickets must he voted
New York.
The State election of New York
comes off next Tuesday, Nov. 4th, the
same day ss in this State. As there
is a Governor to elect in New York,
and as its result will have a considera
ble bearing upon National politics and
prospective Presidential candidates for
next year, it is looked to with great
interest. There are two Democratic
candidates for Governor and the suc
cess of the Republicans would seem
assured, although their candidate is
not the most popular one.

The proceedings so far have been inter
esting and instructive, but we are
unable to give them in detail as yet.
Several strangers and educators are
present assisting in the exercises. On
Monday evening addresses were made
by Prof. Angel, of Allegheny county,
and Mr. George K. Balph, of tins
place. Mr. Balph handled his subject
with much ability and his effort is well
spoken of by all who were present.
The election iu this State will occur
next Tuesday. Are our Republican
friends of Butler county fully aware
of this fact? Although but a State
Treasurer is to elect, yet that is an im
portant office, and there should be a
full turn out to the polls. Pennsyl
vania is still the second State of the
IJnion, and her position in our National
politics has always been potential, as
"the Keystone State." State pride
appeals to her Republicans not to see
her political fame and name pass into
the hands of our opponents. Let
there, then, be a full turn out on next

Pig iron has advanced more than
fifty per cent, since the Democratic
party got possession of both Houses
of Congress.— Clarion Democrat.
Yes, and no sooner has good times
been restored than the jwople go back
and vote the Republican ticket. It
serves the Democrats right. They
ought to have let the hard times alone
for awhile longer.
We find the above in the Democratic
Herald of this place, of last week.
The information it contains is so new
and marvelous that the Clarion Demo
crat is certainly entitled to the right
of discovery. Nobody had ever
dreamed that there was any possible
connection between the advance in the
price of "pig iron" and the "posses
sion of both Houses of Congress" by
the Democrats. It had rather been
heretofore understood that the Demo
crats in Congress, as a party, were foes
to the interests of "pig iron" and all
the other industries of the country
that needed protection by tariff laws.
Should the Clarion Democrat attempt
to enlighten the country by telling it
of what particular act or thing the
Democrats in the late Congress done
to advance the price of pig iron, or
any other interest, we think it would
find its task a difficult one. The Wood
tariff bill was a Democratic measure,
and was intended to reduce the pres
ent tariff and withdraw, to a certain
extent, the protection now afforded to
iron and other home interests. And
this bill was defeated mainly by the
Republicans iu Congress. The Demo
crats were for advancing backwards.
This is the manner in which they did
advance the interest of the Govern
ment as regards tobacco, and the man
ner in which they sought to advance it
as regards whisky. These latter are
the only two domestic manufactures
that the Democrats displayed any par
ticular skill or interest in "advancing."
They had about as little to do with
the advance in the price of pig iron as
the Ute Indians. As well might they
claim to be the authors of resumption
and the bringing about of the present
equality of the greenback with coin.
But the more amusing j>art of the
above quotation is its endorsement by
the Democratic Herald of this place,
and the evident disgust of our neigh
bor at the people not appreciating the
claim made that pig iron advanced be
cause the Democrats had "possession
of both Houses of Congress." The
Herald editor is so disgusted with this
ignorance of the people in the matter,
and their still voting the Republican
ticket, despite the advance in pig iron,
that he cruelly declares, "It serves
the Democrats right," and that "they
ought to have let the hard times alone
for awhile longer." What a sad con
dition the pig iron interest would now
be in if this revengeful spirit of our
neighbor had prevailed. His party
interest is higher and greater than the
interest of his country, anil he would
make the rise or the fall iu the price of
pig iron, and the hard times or the
good times, entirely dependent on
whether or not the majority of the
people voted the Democratic ticket.
We do not see any remedy for this
misfortune and chagrin of our neigh
' bor unless he can have introduced here
the "shotgun policy," and "shoot down
on the spot" every man who refuses
or neglects to vote for his party. But
this would be as cruel here as it is in
the South, as most of people were not
aware that the Democrats in Congress
had it in their power to continue the
"hard times," or to make good times,
as announced by the Herald. It is
fortunate for the "pig iron" men that
the Democrats did not do as our neigh
bor says they ought to have done, "let
the hard times alone for awhile longer."
Wttibtv Citisen: Uttiber, fl«. t <§>jtitork*K 29, tߥ9.
But inasmuch as this power over the ,
times and the prices of things is in ,
the Democrats, as suggested by the j
Herald, we sincerely hope that there |
are but few Democrats who will agree |
with our neighbor, or join him in
again plunging the country into the j
hard times from which we are so rap- :
idly escaping. The people continue ;
to vote the Republican ticket merely !
because they did not know that we
were indebted to the Democrats in the
present Congress for the present rise
in the price of "pig iron." "Since the
Democratic party got possession of
both Houses of Congress" much has
been laid to its charge, and for which
it is now and will be held to answer
—such as attempting to starve out the
Government, its army, and officers in ;
some branches of its service. But of j
all the charges that have been made J
against it, that of causing good times, j
or the rise in "pig iron" or anything j
else, cannot justly be laid to it. Its
policy has rather been of a "back
actiou" character.

Cremated Alive.
RICHMOND, Ya.,Oct. 25.—Yesterday
James S. Nash, a well-to-do farmer
living in Henrico county, came to
Richmond and got on a spree. He
returned home last night pretty full of
liquor, and went to the stable and put
his horse away. He then went to the
fodder-house, a small log building, to
get some fodder for his horse. He
carried a candle with him. '1 he fodder
house was entered by means of a very
small door. By some means, after the
unfortunate farmer had opened the
door, he dropped the candle in the
fodder, igniting it at once. In his
drunken stupidity he overturned a
heavy bale of hay, which rolled against
the small door, shutting and closing it
The fodder blazed at once, and the
man in the midst of the fiery furnace
roasted alive. His screams brought
his agonized wife and children to the
scene, but they could not force open
the small door, which had a mass of
bales of hay jammed against it. The
house being built of logs, they could
not effect an entrance by knocking
down the sides. Through the large
cracks between the logs they could see
the man burning alive, and his contor
tions were horrible to look upon. Sur
rounded by a fire, with his clothes
blazing, he was soon sobered by his
intense suffering, lifting bales of burn
ing hay in his hands in his endeavors
to clear the way to the door. At first
his hair blazed; then they saw his eye
balls burst open from the intense heat,
and he fell to the floor.
In his screams of agony before he
fell he cried "Water! Water!" and he
saw the small crowd outside and
screamed : "What are you all standing
there for when I am burning ? Help
me, for God's sake !" Very soon after
he fell his sufferings ended in death,
but not before both arms had been
completely burned off. This morning
all that was taken from the ruins was
the headless trunk of what had been a
The "Censue-Man" Is Coming.
[American Agriculturist.]
Next year will be 1880; and when
the number of the year ends in a
cypher, there is a great ingathering of
all sorts of statistics. In other words,
the* Decennial Census is taken by the
United States Government. At some
time next year the home of every far
mer, and of every other person, will be
visited and the occupants called upon
to give concise answers to a long list
of questions. In order that these
answers should be accurate—for the
value of census dcqjends upon its accu
racy—every farmer should write down,
while it is fresh in his mind, the num
ber of head of live stock, the products
of the dairy, and in fact all the results
of this year's farming, ami have them
ready for the day when the facts are to
be gathered. It is to the interest of
the farmer that the census be accurately
taken ; so let each one be prepared
beforehand, and not !>e forced to give
hasty guesses upon such important
matters. There are peculiar people,
not to say "crooked sticks" in the
world, though we are glad to believe
that these, though they «xist among
farmers, an; not especially numerous.
Yet even among farmers there will be
those who regard the questions put by
the census-taker as an impertinent in
quiry into their private business, and
either refuse to reply altogether, or to
give blind ami evasive answers. Such
persons should know that the census
taker is an officer of the General Gov
ernment, and represents, for this pur
pose, the will of the people us ex
pressed in a law passed l>y both Houses
of Congress. Laws carry with them
a penalty for their violation and eva
sion; those who resist the examination
of the "Census-Man" may get into
Tho Drought in tho West.
CINCINNATI, October 20.—The Ohio
river is lower than it has been for
twenty years. At hundreds of points
between here arid Pittsburgh it can be
forded easily. Scarcely a boat is to be
seen. Navigation is nearly suspended,
ami freight is piled up in great ipianti
ties at all points between Pittsburgh
and Louisville, waiting for the rise
that many predict will not coine this
season. The stage of the water has
not been sufficient for the transporta
tion of coal since July, and the conse
quence is that the price of that com
modity in Cincinnati has doubled since
that time. There is not enough coal
on hand in the yards to supply the
demand for ten days. If there are no
heavy rains within that time the city
will Im> dependent for supplies upon
the railroads, at whatever cost of trans
portation they may choose to adopt.
At Pittsburgh every craft on the river
that can be converted to such use is
filled with cpal waiting for the water
to rise. The accumulation is the great
est that has ever been known, amount
ing to 18,000,000 bushels. The drought
is beginning to have a serious efleet
upon the growing wheat. It has
brought the Hessian fly, which ill
many localities in Southern Indiana is
doing great mischief. The area sown
to wheat is much greater than last
year, but the drought and the appear
ance of the fly have had the effect of
persuading farmers who have not sold
this year's crop to hold on to it lor
still higher prices.
Mr. D. O. Barr and the Catholics.
[From tilt Philadelphia Bulletin.]
The Republican party has avoided
all allusions to the fact that Mr. D. O.
Barr, the Democratic candidate for
State Treasurer, is a Catholic, properly
regarding a man's religion as having
nothing to do with his qualifications
for a public office. But the friends of
Mr. Barr have brought the question
up by issuing circulars to pastors of
churches, asking for lists of their uicm
liers. When this was complained of,
it was asserted that the old list of
Democratic voters had not been handed
over to the new Committee. But this
is denied, as is stated in the following
from the Pittsburgh Commercial-Ga
zette, which appends also a curious cir
cular of the campaign of 1877, in
which the public school question was
introduced. The Commercial says:
"Candidate D. O. * Barr and his
brother John C. Barr, are both catching
it on all sides. We showed on Satur
day morning the falsity of I>. O. Barr's
statement that he had sent his circulars
to Protestant clergymen as well as
Catholic clergymen, and now the state
ment made by John C. Barr is also
shown to be false. John C. Barr stated
to a Telegraph reporter that none of
the Chairmen of the Democratic State
Committee, since the time of Wallace
(including the latter)' hail left any
thing in the way of data necessary for
the conduct of the campaign to their
successors. To prove the falsity of
this statement and clear his own skirts,
Capt. William McClelland wrote to R.
Milton Speer, of Huntingdon, and the
latter gentleman writes back acknowl
edging that he received full data from
Capt. McClelland, when he succeeded
the latter as Chairman, and also adds
that he (Speer) offered his full data to
Mr. Miller, the present Chairman, but
that Mr. Miller made no reply. Mr.
Speer also says that he attributed this
silence to the fact D. O. Barr had
months before secured all the lists in
Spcer's possession. So the facts are
then the Democratic Committee ad
dressed the circulars only to Catholic
priests, and not for the purpose simply
of securing a general list of voters, but
for the special purpose of hunting out
the Catholic voters.
"The circular sent to the Democratic
State Convention, in 1877, to delegates,
for the purpose of capturing 'Square
Timber' Noyes' delegates, shows how
D. O. Barr feels on the public school
question :
" 'Dear Sir : We solicit your influ
ence for the nomination of D. O. Barr,
Esq., of Pittsburgh, for State Treas
urer. He is opposed by some because
he is a strict Catholic. He is proud
of his faith, and you know that all
good Catholics are Democrats. The
school question cannot come up in this
campaign, but if it does he is prepared
to meet it. He is in favor of a pro
rata distribution of school funds to all
denominations, and then all could
have their children brought up in the
faith of their parents. This would do
away with the common schools of this
State, and be a great saving to the
State. If he is nominated and elected
State Treasurer he will use his influ
ence to effeci this chnage. His
brother, James P. Barr, is editor of
the leading Democratic paper of the
West, arid their views correspond.
This is, of course, confidential. We
understand that you hold similar
views, and for that reason send you
this card. Do not let a Republican see

Iron, Then and Now.
Large as has been the advance in
iron and manufactures of iron, to-day's
prices are still very far from approach
ing those of' 1872. The best foundry
pig iron is quoted at the shipping ports
at s3l per ton to-day, against $17.62
in 1878, and §48.87| in 1872. New
iron rails are quoted at s4Bf«po at
tide-water to-day, against $33.60 iu
I*7B, and SBS in 1872. Steel rails are
now valued at against $43.26
iu 1878, and sll2 in 1872. Ordinary
refined iron is now quoted at S6B per
ton of 2,240 pounds, against $43@44
in IH7«, and $95(«jl00 in the latter
part of 1872.

This disease like many others is regarded
as incurable. It is not so. If it is taken in
time it is as easily cured as a wart or a corn.
We know very well that it is a fearful disease
and will cat away until it destroys life, that
is if it is neglected, but if it is attended to
when it first makes its appearance, or soon
after, there is no trouble in eradicating it
from the system. Persons will have to be here
during part of the treatment, consequently
there is no use writing to me for information
whether it can be cured without my seeing the
