A Tillage to bo Sold.
From the New York Tribune.]
The village of Feltville, a short
distance from Summit, N. J., is adver
tised to be sold under foreclosure of
mortgage on next Wednesday, a decree
of the sale having been obtained from
Chancellor Runyon. The foreclosure
proceedings were brought at tbe suit of
James D. Fish receiver of the Globe
Mutual Life Insurance Company of
New York. Feltville is known in the
surrounding country as "The De
serted Tillage." It is uninhabited ex-
I cept by occasional tramps, whose
presence there makes tbe visits of the
curious somewhat hazardous. It is
situated in a romantic valley between
Summit and Fanwood. Over thirty
years ago David Felt, a New York
stationer, bought a tract of GOO acres
there and started two large paper
mills. He erected twenty-four cot
tages, a church for union services, a
school-house and a country store.
He also built for himself a handsome
house. The village flourished for a
number of years. Finally Mr. Felt
sold the whole place to Mr. Town
send, the sasaparilla manufacturer.
The latter in time became financially
embarrassed, and borrowed SOO,OOO
from the Globe Mutual Life, giving a
mortgage on the entire property
Being unable to meet the interest on
the mortgage, the company foreclosed
it and took the property. The opera
tions in tbe mills ceased, and the
working people moved away to seek
employment in other towns, until the
piace became silent and deserted- The
property has rapidly diminished in
value, the houses and mills and
machinery are going to pieces. When
the Globe Mutual Life failed some years
ago it was worth many thousand
dollars more than at present. The
sale of the property will l>e held at the
Court House in Elizabeth.

to have arrived at Cairo last night
with the dead and wounded, and will

The Gold Dust was built in 1873,
by Capt. E. W. Gould, at a cost of
$59,000. She was purchased a year
later by the Anchor line, and was
valued at the time of the disaster at
$35,000. The company carries no in

for the purposo of wrecking a train,
was discovered by the engineer of a

ate to avoid the obstruction, and after
whistling "down breaks" the engineer

ran into the log, wrecking the engine

injuring no one.

Business and Excitement on the Increase
Since our last issue the excitement
and interest in the Bald Ridge develop
ments have b*>en on the increase. Our
town is now in a lively state and it
[ looks as even letter than any former
business times were about to visit us.
The Sheidemantle well is still flow
ing a; the rate of from five to six
hundred barrels per day and is visited
daily by many citizens and strangers.
The tools are still in the well and, like
a number of other wells on top of the
sand, are awaiting pipe facilities for
taking care of the oil. Mr. Smick has
another well near the Sheidemantle,
on his (Weber farm) which is about
Simcox & Myers have wells on the
Dodds, Gruver and Kaltenbach farms,
near the sand and for which pipe ar
rangements are being looked after.
The Uuion Oil Co.'s well, in which
Mr. John Satterfield is interested, on
the William M. Brown farm, about two
miles south of Sheidemantle, is ex
pected in soon with good results.
The Phillips' Bros, new well on
Dixon farm, is on top of sand and
awaiting pipe line connection.
The Bald Bidge Company, in addi
tion to their first two wells, and not
connected with any of the above, have
the following wells drilling: two on
the Short's farm, one in the sand and
the.other under headway ; one on Weber
farm ; one on Mahood farm ; one on
Reiber, Peirsol and Hoffman farm, and
one we believe on Heckart farm. Of
these, some of them are on or nearing
the sand with all prospects favorable
and with arrangements being made for
pipe conveyance. The property of the
Bald Ridge consists in about nine hun
dred acres, leases, all at the one eight
royalty. It is very valuable, and we
understand a sale of the property is
about completed with the Phillips
Bros, for the whole property ; and for
the sum of SIOO,OOO.

There are many reports, stories per
haps, concerning tbe death of this
young woman who was found bang
ing by the neck and dead, 6n the 3rd
of this month, near Hilliards mill, this
county. One of the most remarkable
reports is that ber life was insured.
This, we understand, is an actual fact.
Taken in consideration with the facts
that she was the daughter of very
poor parents, was herself poor, and
ber alleged husband and all the circle
of friends in which she and he lived
and moved, being also in quite limited
worldly circumstances, the fact of ber
life being insured is a very significant
one to say tbe least. Tbe case will
come before tbe Grand Jury at coming
Sept. term and wo presume will be duly
The following account we take from
the Mercer Rc/yublican of 10th inst:
A BRIDE'S DEATH.
HER LIFELESS BODY FOUND HANGING IN
THE WOODS. HER HUSBAND AR
The citizens of Jlilliard, Butler coun
ty, on the S. & A. road, were agitated
during the latter part of last week over
what was supposed to be a suicide.
Thursday afternoon some little girls
out picking blackberries near that
place, discovered the lifeless body of
Mrs. Eli Donaldson, the wife of a
miner of that place. She was only
twenty-one years of age. Her body
was found hanging from a rail resting
on two young trees. An iuquest was
held, at which it was developed that
the unfortunate woman had last been
seen at one o'clock on the previous
afternoon, though her long absence
did not seem to cause any uneaisiness.
She had been married ooly about six
weeks, a fact which her husband did
not want published. So much uajstery
was attached to the case that her hus
band was arrested early Friday morn
ing on suspicion that he knew more
than he had told about his wife's sud
den death. When found she was very
black in the face, her tongue protrud
ing from her mouth, and the noose of
the rope very loose, indicating that she
had died of strangulation. Her shoes
stood at the base of the tree, her corset
lying near by. Her dress was adjust
ed, however, showing that the deed
was done deliberately. In order to
get her head into the noose it was
necessary for her to climb one of the
fees, walk out on the rail to where
the rope was attached, and there ad
just it to her neck. There arc neigh
bors, again, who say that they saw
the woman as late as 5 o'clock oil the
previous evening, while the husband's
testimony was that she disappeared at
The goneral impression in that
neighborhood is that some person as
sisted in the hanging. The rail was
adjusted in the limbs of the two trees
at a distance of about ten feet from the
ground. The rope was a bed cord,
twisted three double, and securely
knotted in a manner that indicated a
practiced hand. At the throat there
was an ordinary slip knot which tight
ened when a weight is suspended.
The drop was four or five feet.

"Plain Facts" is having a large
sale and is higly recommended whore
introduced as the following testimoni
als indicate :
The author has gone quite thoroughly o
the j>eculiar facts treated, anil has handled
them with singular tr.ct and delicacy, yet with j
power. The entire volume may be read with j
safety. Scarcely a line in it that has not i s i
mission of instruction aad healing. We shall
be glad to know that it will reach
its hundreth edition before the next century
comes in. The publishers have done remarka
bly good work with it, in all respects.
It contains a great deal of information
which should be made general instead of being
forbidden or kept in the background, and we
can commend it to parents for their own
guidance and instruction as well as for the
teaching of their children.
"Plain Facts" is a book that every mother
and father should possess, full as it is of sound
and wholesome advice and information that
cannot be had in any other form. The author
stands high in his profession.
MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL.
The book has been prepared and published
in the interest of virtue, and is well calculated
to promote this end. Although dealing with
delicate subjects, its style is pure, and its
teachings are strictly moral.
I have carefully examined "Plain Facts'
and heartily commend it to all, as dealing
faithfully with very delicate subjects. May
the time come when ministers, parents and
teachers as well as physicians, will warn
against foolish and hurtful lusts which destroy
the soul as well as the body. "Plain Facts"
ought to be introduced into every family.
REV. J. 11. TEDFORD,
PASTOR U. P. CHUKCH, MT. AYE, IOWA.
