: —The Womans' Christian Temper
( anre Union, of Franklin, has establish
ed a free reading room in that town.
A free readiug room is a good thing
for a man or boy who wants to read
and has nothing at home with which
to gratify his taste in that line. The
home is the proper place to read and
almost every person can get something
to read there. If they are not able to
i buy books and papers, they likely have
j neighbors who will lend to them. For
I the men and boys, however, who like
j to loaf on the streets and in saloons,
"that is the" sort of thing they like"
J and that is what they'll do. A read
j ing room will have no attraction for
! them unless a saloon, billiard room or
; card room is connected with it.
| —The drill of the McConnell well
| on the Miller farm reached the third
j sand last Thursday, when the volume
of gas became strong enough to raise
large pebbles to the floor of the derrick.
About twelve feet of good third sand
was found in the well but it is report
ed to be entirely dry. The owners are
drilling on, with the intention of test
ing the fourth sand. This well, we
understand, is located on the old 22£
degree line, which is over 100 rods
west of a line passing through the Sim
cox Myers well. The failure of this
well puts another damper on the
degree line theory, and as to the cross
belt theory, although the Bald Ridge
and Herman Station oils are said to be
identical, the third sand of the Bald
Ridge territory is over one hundred
feet higher than that of the Herman
Station wells, whereas the sand in all
cross belts heretofore developed has
always dipped toward the south-west.
In noting the position of the third sand
rock the measurements are taken from
the line rock strata. It seems to be
left to the drill alone, to tell in which
directisn the belt or pool exteuds.
—The town of Galevville, Arizona,
near the New Mexico line, was com
pletely destroyed by Indians last Wed
nesday and thirty white
people were killed. Nearly one hun
dred pioneers of that section have,
within the last few days been murdered
by the Apaches. The outbreak was
not entirely unexpected. Last Sep
tember a number of Jndian scouts fired
on Gen. Wilcox's command at Fort
Apache. They were surrendered by
the Indians on the promise of a fair
trial. Three were tried and sentenced
to be hauged„and meanwhile nothing
was done in the cases of the others,
who were chafing under confinement.
The Indians could not understand tho
delay. It looked to them like treach
cry, and they got the idea into their
heads that it was the intention to kill
all the prisoners, a few at a time. In
dian Agent Tiffany telegraphed to
Washington begging that the execution
of the three should be postponed until
the others should either have been
tried or released, and predicting trouble
should this not be done; but the
sentence was carried out on March 3.
The Indians now declare that they in
tend to kill all the people they can in

Loan Association of this town vs.,
J no. P. Lowry and David Cups, on
the list for last week did not come to
trial, the propositions of the defend,
antu for settlement having been ac
cepted by the Association just before
the time fixed for the trial. The de
fendants in the two cases are to pay
up all back dues with six per cent
interest added, and all record costs,
and then continue as members of the
association until tbe end of it, which
we hope ic in the near future. Wo
understand that some members who
have put in applications for the with
drawal of their stock, now want to
withdraw their withdrawals. This
should not be allowed, and if money
again stagnates in the treasury of the
Association, the pro rata clause of the
act of 1879 should be incorporated in
the by-laws of the Association. A
two-thirds vote of the Association
can do this at any time, and either
this or something else, if necessary.
If any of the members of the associa
tion are looking forward to a grand
game of grab at its close, they had
better disabuse their minds of the idea
as soon as possible. If thov will
read tbe preamble to one of the Build
ifig and Loan acts they will see that

—For tbe month of March, tbe
Bureau of Statistics makes a fuller
statement than usual of the arrivals of
immigrants, adding to the ordinary
tables of the month others relating to
previous years. There came to the
United States in March 65,234 immi
grants, agaiust 44,056 for the corres
ponding month of 1881, making for
the nine months since July Ist, 1881,
440,325 persons, against. 350,531 in
the nine months from July Ist, 1880.
Recorded by countries, the showing
was as follows:
March, 1882 March, 1881.
England & Wales 1 SIS 3,480
Ireland 5.221 3,173
Scotland 1,301 !>l3

China .3,792 9!»S
All other countries 11,290 5,812
Total 65,234 44,050
There are some notable features in
this table ; for instance, the enormous
and increasing movement from Ger
many, the stlll enlarged immigration
from Canada, and the great develop
ment in the arrivals from China and
from Sweden. The arrivals from
Austria were nearly all Hungarians
(1,071), and from Switzerlad there
came 1,217 (included in the item,
"All other countries"). France sent
but five hundred and forty-one,—a
wonderful contrast to Germany. The
total arrivals for the three months of
1882 ended on March 3lst were 111,-
070, as against 72,205 for the corres
ponding throe months of 1881. This
is interesting, as showing that there
is no cessation to the swelling of the
coming tide. It grows larger and lar
ger ; for the arrivals of 1881 far exceed
ed those of any previous year. In
1880 (the calendar year), they were

is a covenant in Ib»--e leases to pay
yearly rentals, so many vears after a

l.ased, one year after a demand. Fail
ing to make these payments as stipu

wishing to get rid of the lease must
make a demand on the company, Mer

owning the leases, by himself or bis

time ago John Murray, the owner of a
small farm in Dunbar twp., Fayette Co.,
about, two miles north of Connellsville,
along the banks of the rude \ ough,
discovered on hts premises a vein of
ore which contained glittering par
ticles not unlike silver. Remember
ing the old adage that "All is not
gold that glitters," he took but little
iuterest in the matter until be dis
covered a couple of his neighbors
secretly opening out and examining
the ore. His curiosity being then ar
roused, be sent specimens of the ore to
a New York assayer. The latter now
reports that the ore will yield $2lO per
ton of silver. Negotiations are now
pending between Murray and certain
capitalists with a view of leasing and
developing the find.
