The Sham and the Real.
Every good thing has its host of imitators;
every genuine article its counterfeits. Bad
manners aud wicked habits have theirs also;
but he who shams the bad never boasts of it,
while they who ape the virtues of the good or
simulate the genuine never hesitate to place
the counterfeit before the public in their most
alluring tones. When these people imitate
they always choose a pronounced type or pop-'
ular subject to copy from; aud when they
claim to be as good as "So-aud-So" or to sell an
article equal to "So-and-So," the public may
depend upon it that Mr. *'So and So" and his
article are always the best of the kind. Thus
the sham is always proving the genuine merit
of the thing it copies.
A firm of enterprising gentlemen produce
and popularize an article of household use,
such as the Royal Baking Powder, whose con
venience, usefulness and real merit make
for itself an immense and universal sale. A
hundred imitators arise on every hand, and as
they hold out their sham articles to the public,
yelp in chorus, "Buy this; it's just as good as
the Royal, and much cheaper?" The Royal
Baking Powder is the standard the world over,
and its imitators in their cry that theirs is "as
good as the Royal" are all the time emphasiz
ing this fact. In their laborious attempts to
show by aualysis and otherwise that the "Snow
ball" brand has as much rising power "as the
Royal;" or that the "Resurrection" powder is
as wholesome "as the Royal;" or that the
"Earthquake" brand is "as pure as the Royal,"
as well as by their contortive twistings of
chemical certificates and labored efforts to oh
tain recognition from the Government chem
ists and prominent scientists who have certi :
fied the superiorly of Royal over all others,
they all admit the "Royal to be the acme of
perfection, which it is their highest ambition
to imitate. But the difference between the
real and these imitations, which copy only its
general appearance, is as wide as that between
the paste and the true diamond. The shams
all pay homage to the "Royal!"
Hoods, scarfla, ribbons and any
fancy articles can be made any color
wanted with the Diamond Dyes. All

A SCENE IN COrRT.
Wednesday afternoon of the tirst week of the
Quarter .Sessions is the time usually set apart
by the Court for the confirming of tinal ac
counts, widows' appraisements and road reports'
to which no exceptions are filed and acknowl
edging of Sheriff's deeds, to which noobjections
are made; and when the Sheriff's deed of the
property of W. W. McDermott, 142 acres in
Clay twp., to \V. A. Forquer, Esq., passed
through the hands of the Court last Wednesday
afternoon and the usual question "any objec
tions," etc., asked, W. H. 11. Riddle, Esq.,
arose and objected to the acknowledging ot it
and made a statement to the Court, the gist of
which was that the property had not brought a
fair price at the Sheriff's sale (only $100) on ac
count of Col. Thompson's statement at the sale
that the title of the property was not clear or
good, that ail the genuine judgments against
the property amounted to but about SISOO, but
that a note given some time ago by W. W. Mc-
Dermott to C"l. Thompson in favor of his
brother, W. G. Thompson, of lowa, for $400.00
in order to raise money to pay off a note of like
amount due some other person, and which Mr.
McDermott had afterwards paid himself, had
turned up entered > n the docket of the I T . S.
District Court, at Pittsburgh, as a judgment
against him of $4,000. This transaction Mr.
Riddle denounced as infamous, and also an
nounced that he would have an arrest made
that day. Mr. Forquer, who had taken an as
signment of the Paul McDermott judgment,
and had paid it off, arose and stated that all he
wanted was to get his money back. Col.
Thompson arose and stated that \V. W. Mc-
Dermott had given him the note for a certain
purpose, that he, McDermott was as well aware
ofthe amount the note called for then as he is
now, that not a dollar had ever been paid on
the noto or raised on it in any way, and that as
for entering it orf the docket at Pittsburgh, he
did it and would do it again. The Court held
the disposal of the deed over until Ihe 16tli of
April next, and that same evening Mr. W. W.
McDermott made oath before Esq. Walker, of
Butler, charging Col. Thompson with forging
and uttering a note against him.for $4,000, and
Thompson entered bail for a hearing the date
of which has not yet been fixed.

The County Court, on Friday morning of
last week, first examined the uiflferent applica
tions fnr licence to sell liquor, to see that they
were all in proper form aud then announced
that the applications from IJutler borough were
under consideration. Thereupon several mem.
bers of the Bar spoke, each in their turn, in
favor of granting licenses to thedifterenr appli
cants of the town and assured the Court of the
necessity existing for granting them, from the
fa't that Butler was fast becoming the great
commercial metropolis of the Western conti"
nent, through whose gates daily parsed thous
ands of thirsty travelers, whose parched lips
and dried up gullets should, in charity, be
moistened with a drop of Butler's best. They
also referred to the fact that there were no re
monstrances tiled agaiust the Butler applicants
which was, in fact, a tacit acquiescence on the
part of the people of the town to the granting
of license to all of them. Mr. Brandon denied
this inference and spoke against all licenses,
and particularly the restanrant licenses, the
evil effects of which he thought exceeded those
of the tavern licenses. Mr. McQuistion put in
good word for S. Sykes' application, he being
the only applicant from the South end of town.
Mr. Cunningham called the Court's attention
to the fact that the December Grand Jury had
returned Mr. Sykes' house as being a disorderly
one, but that the Court had taken no notice of
the report. He also stated that the C'ou t had
the power to refuse all licenses, if it chose to do
so, but in this interpretation of the law the
Court did not agree with him, and read a sec
tion of the act which the Court thought sustain
ed its position, and asked Mr. C. to put his
ideas in writing, which Mr. C. did, in the shape
of a general remonstraucetoall the applications
from Butler, setting forth that these liceused
houses were not necessary for the accommoda
tion of the travelling public, for which reason
the Court could, uuder the net, refuse them
license to sell liquor. Mr. McQuistion spoke
in defense of Mr. Sykes and Butler was passed.
The applications from Zelienople and Petrolia
were next considered and there being no re
monstrances they were passed. Those from
Millerstown were next taken up, when Mr. Mc-
Bride presented a remonstrance against Mr.
Lock hart's application, signed by several per
sons and setting forth among other things, that
Mr. Lockhart kept a barroom and a billiard
room in the same house, contrary to law. Mr.
Ivockhart's attorney presented a recommenda
tion of the house signed by many of the best
people of the town and proved, by several wit
nesses, that the bar and billiard rooms in his
house did not directly communicate with each
other. Several letters in Mr. Lockhart's favor
were also read, and after a lengthy squabble be
tween Messrs. Scott and Mcßride during which
both attorneys got pretty warm, Millerstown
was finally finished and the Court passed to
Saxonburg. Here the biggest fight of the day
was inaugurated by Dr. Montgomery and Mr.
Sefton presenting remonstrances signed by 455
of the voters of Jefferson, I'enn, Middlesex,
Clinton, Buffalo and Winfield townships,
against the granting of licenses to Messrs. Laube,
Muder and Kohnfelder, setting forth that their
houses were not necessary for the accommoda
tion of the travelling public, that they sold to
men ot kmwn intemperate habits and that
they were not safe men to entrust with license.
The three 'applicants and quite a number of
other citizens of the town and vicinity were
put on the stand and Saxonburg was proved to
be a popular summer resort, whose three great
hotels were filled eyery summer with sickly
Pittsburgers seeking health and recreation.
The three hotels were proved to be necessary
for the accommodation ofthese persons and the
large number of commercial travelers who stop
there; the three applicants were proved to- be
men of unexceptionable character—church
members, borough officials, etc., the harvest
homes, to be innocent, harmless affairs, and Sax
onburg a little heayen on earth, where the
weary farmer can rest himself after a hard
day's work, and, with the assistance of a glass
of "beer or wh'.sKy, discuss the affairs of the day
and nation. We have heard it said that "Sax
onburg is a very nice place," but after hearing
the evidence in its favor, we go a step further

It was towards evening before Saxonburg was
finally disposed of when the applications from
Harmony, Evar.sburg, Karns City and other
points were considered and there being no re
monstrances, they were passed and the
Court adjourned till next day. Ou Saturday
morning the applications from Coalville and
Siipperyroek township, to which Rev. Knesal
and .Mr. 11. 11. Yiuceut, presented remonstranc
es, were heard and considered, and that after
noon the applicants from Cherry and Washing
ton townships, against which Messrs. Christy
and livers presented remonstrances were heard
and considered. These finished the list and oc
cupied the attention of the Court during the
greater part of the after no. u, when the Court
adjourned and the three judges on the bench re
viewed the situation, with what results as ap
pear in another place, under the heading of
Oil Monday night of last week a
sorrel iiort'e was taken from the barn
of John Reibold in Washington twp.
The thief and horse were traced to
Eldertou, Armstrong, where the theif
was arrested, and the horse, which
had- been delivered there to a party
whose name we have not learned, re
covered. The name of the thief is
Henry Pfaff alias Robert Gray. He
is a young man, and on his way back,
while in charge of the officers, he made
statements to them implicating C. M.
Brown, of Petrolia, who, he said, had
hired him to take the horse from Ilei
bold's barn and deliver it to the man
in Elderton, also that Brown assisted
him to steal the horse—keeping
watch while he was doiug so and help
ing him to get away. For stealing
the horse Pfaff got §lO down and was
to get S2O more after delivering him as
per contract and returning to Butler
or Petrolia. Pfaff had a hearing be
fore Esq Walker and was committed
to jail, aud on the strength of his con
fession, Brown was arrested, had a
hearing aud was held for Court, giv
ing bail in SIOOO.
