School Laws and Examinations.
Frequent inquiry is made, by direc

law. Twenty thousand copies are
printed every third year and enough
sent to each county Superintendent to
supply each school board, with about
four copies. The last publication was
made in 1879 and the books have all
been distributed. Only twenty-two
copies were sent to me. These lasted
but a short time. A card from the De

An Interesting Wedding.
The Pittsburgh Ihxpatch of last
Friday says: "A very pleasant little
company of friends assembled yester
day afternoon at the residence of Mr.
George Shaw, on Main street near
Penn avenue. The occasion which
invoked their presence was of an hyme
neal character and necessarily inter
esting in a high degree. Miss Aggie,
second daughter of the late James
Shaw of McKeesport, and B. C.
Huselton, a well known merchant of
Butler, were the high contracting
parties. At 5 o'clock when the little
circle of some thirty relatives had
gathered in the parlor, the bride and
groom elect appeared, preceded by Mr.
Duncan of Butler, and Miss Shaw,
sister of the bride. Rev. Mr. Johns
ton, of McKeesport, then performed
the rite in the briefest possible form,
after which the the usual order of con
gratulations came in.
Afterward there was a charming
supper to dispose of, and shortly fol
lowing that the happy couple departed
by the Pennsylvania railroad for a
tour of the Fast extending to the
White mountains. Atan early hour the
company dissolved, voting unanimous
ly in favor of wedded bliss. The bride

Among the towns thore is a great

on the edge of ,the field. Seven new
wells were completed—three on lot

from one hundred to eight hundred

Another Faith Cure.
THE New York Tribune gives an
! account of a remarkable scene witness
|ed at the Faith Cure Camp Meeting
j at Old Orchard Beach, Maine, on
j August 3. More than 600 invalids
| presented themselves to be cured of
j their diseases by prayer. One by one
they were taken before Dr. Cbaples
Cullis, the manager of the meeting.
Dipping a finger of his right hand in
oil, Dr. Cullis laid his hand upon the
head of each, uttering a fervent prayer.
Some departed from the meeting de
claring themselves cured of their dis
eases. From 2:30 till fi o'clock the
procession filed along. All ages were
represented, some tottering on crutches,
some in invalid chairs, the dwarfed the
crippled and the blind.
Some time since a United Presby
terian preacher living in Ilurrisville, in
Harrison county, Ohio, named Love,
was robbed of $5,000. Being unable
to find any clue to the perpetrators of
the robbery he called in the aid of de
tectives, who astonished the reverend
gentleman by producing his two sons,
aged respectfully 12 and 14 years, as
the convicts. The youthful robbers,
on being cornered, confessed their crime
and said that they had gone to Bel
laire and purchased a bottle of chloro
form, which, on the night of the rob
bery, they had scattered over the car
pet in the old gentleman's sleeping
room; that when this bad taken effect
they quietly robbed him of the money
intending to go West. The little ras
cals had all the money when arrested
and expressed no regret over anything
except the failure of their plans.
The pipe line connections from the
Bald Ridge district are being rapidly
completed. Every day on our streets
may be seen teams taking lumber,
engines, tools and every kind of
oil machinery to the new field.
Houses at Millerstown, Rams City and
other fields, now out of use, are being
torn down, or sawed into parts, and
hauled through this place to Bald
Ridge. In several cases we have
noticed the roofa of such houses loaded
upon wagons for that point. Several
new wells are expected in this week,
or soon, and if all are as good as ex
pected the boom in business here will
be greatly on the increase.
Simcox & Myers have sold a half
interest in their lease from the Bald
Kidge Company to Richard Jennings
& Co. for $75,000. This is only for
the land upon which the Simcox &
Myers well is located.
The well being drilled by Phillips
Bros., on the Judge McJuukin farm, a
mile or so east of town, is now down
about 500 feet.
The negotiation for the sale of the
oil property of the Bald Ridge Co., of
this place, we understand has fallen

so numerous and many so seemingly miracu
lous, that the remedy was officially proclaimed

versal that for over 300 years uo deafness has
exl<ed among the Chinese people. Sent,

I have beeu greatly benefited.
My deafness helped a great deal —think

sonally testify, boib from exj>erlenee and obeer
vation. Write at once to Haylock & Jenuey,
