T HE law which makes the unlawful
sale of that undesirable, though possi
bly harmless, substitute for butter,
known as oleomargarine, punishable
by fine and imprisonment ought to be
generally and rigorously enforced. It
appears that the sales of the genuine
product of the dairy have fallen oft' 50
per cent, on account of the dishonest
competition of this counterfeit. The
law requires that every package of
oleomargarine shall be plainly marked
as such. This requirement appears to j
be complied with only by wholesale j
dealers, while the city* retailers gener- j
ally disregard it.

APPARENTLY it is as true now as it
was in Paul's time that the office of
bishop is one to lie desired. Aside
from all its other advantages, it seems
to be eminently conducive to longev

of the Protestant Episcopal Church in
this country, now in his 80th year, has
been making a calculation on the sub
ject. He reports that the youngest of
his predecessors in office lived to see
70 years, and that the average age at
death, if he himself were to die to
morrow, would be years. One ol
his predecessors reached HO and
another 80 years.

THERE was once a man who stole

shoes made of his skin, so that he
could say lie "trod him under foot," and
we have heard of a drum-head made of

which parts of the human form divine
have been used we think that being
made into soap is the worst; yet it has
been found that a soap factory in At

One would think that a man was a

THE kissing boom is making the

for its size about the nicest thing in

be careful what they do with their
stock of kisses over and above what
may be needed at home. The New

a moral way was sustained by his
church, but the New Jersey preacher
whose kisses, as he said, were merely
of a fatherly character, is looking

A NEW swindle is reported as being f

They send a letter written in the fa- t
miliar tone of an oltl acquaintance, re
minding the recipient that when he
left their boarding house he owed a lit
tle hill, possibly $2. He is further in- ]
formed that they can readily sell the •
jewelry, which he left behind in a
satchel, for S2O or S3O. If he will re
mit the $2 tliey will send him the
satchel and contents. The gullible one •
knows well that he never possessed 1
such property, nor boarded in such a
place, but lie is willing to quietly ob
tain some other person's valuable jew
elry, and therefore sends the $2. He j
receives nothing. This swindle is
based solely upon the idea that a large I
percentage of the people are by nature i
dishonest enough to take that to which
they have not the slightest just claim,
if they have the chance. People that
are beaten by the trick are served ex
actly right. There is not the slightest
danger that they will put officers of i
the law upon the track of the swind
lers. Shame will keep them from expos
ing their own intentions.— Altoona

with the reciprocity of knowledge that

foreigner and foreigner during the '

came—on the 2Sth day of March. The
year 1880 will have six eclipses, four
of the sun and two of the moon, but
only one of them will be visible here,
namely, the sixth, which is a partial
eelipse of the sun on the last day of the
year very early in the morning A
very unusual thing about these
I eclipses is that three of them occur in
■ December—a circumstance that will
not again occur in many years. Both
j eclipses of the moon will be total, but
invisible in North America. About
, the middle of the year Winneck's
: comet will make its appearance in the
j heavens after an absence of five years

generally more humid than cold—that
is, the almanac says so. The year of

WHEN a gang of Philadelphia poli
ticijns go to llcrrisburg to seek the
pardon of oue of their associates,
whose devotion to his party has got
him iuto trouble, it is generally safe to
assume that the pardou ought not to be
granted, especially when no public no
tice has been given of the intended ap
plication and the effort is made to con
duct the business secretly. In the case
of James Niekson there is no ground
on which the appeal to clemency can
reasonably be made. It was proved at
the trial that Niekson employed men,
at a dollar a head, to vote on assumed
names, going with them from poll to
poll and vouching for them, and the
only defense that was offered was that
he was drunk on election day. The
jury rightly held that this was no ex
cuse for a deliberate and grievous
crime, and Nickson's sentence was in
no degree too severe. One of the men
whom he employed, and with whom
he drank, is now in prison for his ille
gal voting, and no effort is made to se
cure a pardon for him. But Mackenzie
is not a power in his ward, as Niekson
is. Makenzie went to prison in the van ;
Niekson was escorted thither in a car
riage. And now Mackenzie may stay
there, while a party of high officials
join in an effort to set Niekson free.
The Board of Pardons will not need to
think twice over this application. It
should be dismissed on the first hear
ing and the corrupter of elections left
to serve out his well-earned sentence.

According to the provisions of an
act of the Legislature of this State,
passed June 4, 1871), the term of office
of every township officer hereafter
elected, whose term of office would, un
der existing laws, expire on the first
Monday of April of any year, shall be
giu on the first Monday of March next
preceding the said first Monday of
April, and the terms of the successors
of such township officers shall begin
on the first Monday of March, and
shall continue for the period now fixed
for the duration thereof by existing
laws. And township officers shall
meet on the second Monday of March,
1881, and so on each year thereafter.
As this act was passed subsequent to
the last spring election it is construed
as not to effect the officers whose terms
expire next spring.

An Insurance Case.
An important insurance case has
just Wen decided by Justice Paxson, of
the Supreme Court. A saloon keeper
named Paul, at the junction of the
Panhandle and Chartiers Valley Rail
roads, insured in the Armenia Com
pany. The application for the policy
was not filled out entirely, the ques
tion of external exposure having l)een
left hlank. The company refused to
pay tht; money when the house was
burned, because of the omission of
the answer, ami in a suit which was
subsequently brought against it, the
judgment was in favor of Paul. The
Company then appealed the ease to
the Supreme Court where the action
of the lower Court has just been af
firmed. The decision of Judge Paxson
states "that the issuing of a policy,
when a pcrtion of the questions in the
application remained unanswered, is a
waiver of answers to such questions. 1 '
