—KILLED BV A BULL.— Mr. Robert

by a ferocious Alderney bull, in his field, last
Tuesday evening week", ami so injured that he
died short after being earrieJ to his house.
He had gone to the field after the cows and his
not returning as soon as was expected alarmed
his wife, who went out and was astonished to
see the bull preventing those of the cows from
coming to the house that wanted to come.
Surmising that something had happened, she
tailed to their son, who arming himself with a
pitch-fork, went into the field and was driven
out of it by the bull. The son then called a
neighbor, and the two of them found Mr. Mc-
Kinney lying behind a knoll in the field, out
of sight from thehou.se, and carried him in.
Mr. McKinney was about 70 years of ago.
The bull was killed the next day.

Directors can readily see from the
above statement, that the number of
teachers is largely in excess of
the number of schools, and for
that reason alone there will be no
necessity for asking for a special ex
amination for any one. The number
of applicants was nearly two hundred
less than last year, while the number
licensed is nearly one hundred less,
and the number rejected less than one
half as many. By keeping the stan
dard up to a fair degree of excellence
and from time to time raising it a
point or two as circumstances will
permit, the number of teachers can be
made to correspond more nearly with
the number of schools, the better and
progressive ones will be retained,
while the poorer and non-progressive
ones will be sifted out. The effect of
this policy may not be immediately
visible, but it will tell in the end.
Much might be here said in the way
of suggestions to directors and teach
ers, but I forbear for the present.
D F. MCKEE,
mitted by the attaches of Boyd &
Peter's circus and menagerie, upon a
young girl, some weeks ago, retribu
tion came swift upon the perpetrators.
Hardly had the news of the wholesale
arrest at Leechburg on the entire gang,
gone abroad when a representative of
the Courier Printing Company, of
Buffalo, appeared in this county, and
levied upon all the effects of the show,
and last Monday Sheriff Henry sold
the same. Contrary to expectations
the paraphernalia was sold to different
individuals, and not to representatives
of other shows, and while some things
sold for all they were worth, otters
sold very cheaply. Maj. Beale, of
Leechburg, purchased the sacred bull,
and wagon, for one hundred and fifty
dollars. Harry Wray paid twenty
dollars for a bird of paradise, ana ex-
Sheriff Cook invested nineteen dollars
and fifty cents in a pair of minivture
bears. G. W. Stivenson purchased
two mules for two hundred and seven
dollars, and was offered one hundred
and forty dollars for his bargain within
an hour, but refused. Alex. Mont
gomery purchased two horses; K. H.
Stivenson, one; Dr. Jessop one; A.
J. Boggs two horses, two setts
of harness, and wagon for one
hundred and forty dollars; Sheriff
Williams and others from town bought
different materials. The sales footed
up to about three thousand five hun
dred dollars. An extraordinarily large
crowd was in attendance.— Kittanning
—Dr. Tanner's forty days in the
desert ended last Saturday at noon,

grew in the land of Goshen. He is
therefore, not only alive at the end of
his protracted period of abstinence, but
he has confidence that his stomach is
good for even greater trials. And there
is, we believe, no difference of opinion
that it is a greater trial to a man's diges
tive apparatus to begin again after
such a cessation of operations than to
endure the privation. lie is, therefore,
not yet altogether out of the woods.
The saying of a man who has fallen
from a housetop to the effect that it
was not the falling that hurt him,
but the stopping so suddenly when be
had reached the ground, has been re
corded, and the case of a man who has
fasted for forty days is much like that.
The fasting has done him no good, but
it is the stopping that is likely to do
him most harm. But this dangerous
part of his experiment is the one that
will be of most practical interests to
the people as well as to physicians.
How people nearly dead from inan
ition may be most safely and success
fully fed is a point yet much to doubt ;
and yet the cases where men through
shipwreck or mine accidents or other
instances of enforced separation from
food need to be cared for are numerous
enough to make this point one of very
great interest. I)r. Tanner's experience
will throw a novel light upon it. He
first ate a peach, then drank a pint of
milk and extracted from several pieces
of watermelon all the juice but did not
swallow the pulp. The physicians
would have given the milk, but in a
smaller quantity, and they would not
have permitted the raw vegetable fibre
of the peach'. But a fact is worth many
opinions, and if the things taken do
not hurt Tanner that will sufficiently
prove that they were the right things

—Late advices from the scene of
conflict in South America reflect little
credit upon any of the combatants.
The blowing up of a Chilean transport
by tin infernal machine was not a very
glorious deed, although it destroyed a
i hundred and fifty of the enemy. Other
nations have seldom or never deliber
ately used torpedoes, except against
war vessels proper Further details of
i the sack of Tacna and Arica show the
j Chilean soldiery to be as merciless,
thievish and brutal as the worst
mercenaries of Europe were centuries
ago. The objective point of the Chi
leans now is Lima, and no one can
doubt that the hope of plundering that
rich city will keep the army securely
together and enable it to make a tre
mendous fight. Meanwhile, though
not in time to save Lima, there is a
possibility that foreign nations will in
terfere. There seems to be sufficient
excuse for their doing so.

~ WHY DOES
a woman's health often break down at an early age? Put a man at the wish-tub, let ; him got
heated from the hot suds until every pore is opened; then let him stand o"crthe filthy s-eam
that tomes from scalding and boiling clothes, that are full of sweat and exhalations from the
ft it in and his health too would break down before long; and yet this most terrible ordeal Is what
has to go through with on wash-day; and, besides, with her clothing wet from perspiring a
the hot work, she has to risk her life by going out in the air to hang up the clotlios. hvec
those not at work are in the unhealthy atmosphere; its smell, so apparent to \isitors, show
ing that it finds its way through the house,—the family, however often becoming so accus
tomed to the peculiar odor from its own wash as not to notice It. These facts readily ex
plain why so many women suffer with colds, rheumatism, weak nerves, or neuralgia, and
while vet voting in years, and physicians and boards of health cannot draw attention too
rtrangly to of the usual way of washing with te
scalding or boiling to get the clothes pure and sweet-smelling, especially as it is without doubt

My attention was called to FRANK SIDDALLS
BOAP from an advertisement in my own paper,
and its use in my house for nearly a year, according
to the directions, hag proved that its remarkable
properties have not been overstated. lor remov
ing printing Ink it is invaluable, while for toilet
and shaving it is the best Soap X have ever seen.
From MRS. 11. L. KEN YON, Northfleld, Vt
I do my wash with FRAN K SIDDA LLS SOAP in
half the time and with no expense for Soap, at the
srtvino in fuel more than paytjor it. I have no steam
or scent from the wash, while the saving In
health, clothes and labor can hardly be estimated.
From E. W. STANTON, 1508 N. 20th St., "lillada.
We are confident, from a long experience in
using and recommending FRANK JSIDDAL.I..S
SOAP, that one trial, according to the very easv
printed directions, will overcome all prejudices. It
also really has wonderful merit for shaving, toilet.
The following are the Directions for Use, so simple that a child can understand them.
Dont do anything so ridiculous as to buy the Soup unless you Intend following tliem.
SIOO positively forfeited if it injures the clothes, or trill not do everything claimed.
First, put the white clothes in a tub of water, only made warm enough to be comfortable
for the hands. Then take one piece out at a time on the wash-board, rub the Soap lightly
over it, roll it up and put it back into the same tub, and so on with each piece until all
have the Soap rubbed on them. Then go away and let them soak at least twenty minutes,
without touching them, when the dirt will all be loosened, and a very little rubbing on
the wash-board, out of that one suds, will make them perfectly clean, being particular to
turn each piece while washing so as to get at the seams. Then wash lightly on the wash
board, through a lukewarm rinse-water (without any Soap,) so as to get the dirty suds out.
Then put through blue-water, aud on the line, without? scalding or boiling a tingle pieca,
Afterward put flannels and colored pieces to soak, and wash them exactly the same way.
It is important not to heat the wash-water in a tin, brass or copper kettle. A tea-kettle
will heat enough water for a large wash with this Soap.
Just Think What You will Save by this Easy Way of Washing!
No Wash-boiler! No Steam ! No Smell of Suds through the House /
It has the remarkable Property of keeping the Dish-Cloth, Wash-Rag and
Sponge always Sweet, and of Washing Freely in Hard Water.
