"night hawks" last week. They got a couple
of Mrs. E.'s breastpin*), and took Mr. E.'s pants

—The Freeport correspondent of the Gazette
says that a man named Karhart, living near
Carbon Black, was stung by a locust in the
temple. The swelhug and pain was so intense
as to cause delirium, anil it was thought that
he could not live for several hours, but he is
now slowly recovering.
The wiper at the West Penn engine house,
at this place, Mr. Chas. Duncan, dropped dead
on the railroad, opposite Henry Nicholas'
house, last Saturday. He was «>4 years of age
and leaves an aged wife and some small chil
dren in po">r circumstances. But a few days
ago, he remarked that this was the third time
he had seen the 17-year locusts and he felt
hearty enough to see them twice more.
—The Salvation Army at Syracuse, N. Y., is
enlivened hv a seduction and breach of prom
ise case. The guilty brother acknowledges the
seduction but denies the promise. He says he
is too busy work'.ng for Christ to thiuk of inar
riagejust now. The party who made the
trouble between the prosecutrix and her un
faithful lover is an attractive sister who ran
away from Franklin a short time ago and join
ed the Army at Syracuse.
—The circumstances under which a team
owned by Mr. John Friskorn, of Zelienople,
died a few days ago, lead him to think that the
horses were poisoned. After being fed at a

his arrival at the village of Middle Lancaster

—The Building & Loan Association of this

members of the Association, and if this is to be
the final settlement of the matter the agree
ment should be signed by the remaining mem
bers as soon as possible, and then be acknowl
edged and recorded.
—The boys who serenaded a newly married
couple, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Kaufman, at their
home near the Witherspoon Institute, last
Monday night, made a racket that could be
heard all over the town. Tin horns, mouth
organs, dinner bells, tin pans, drums, etc.,
were the musical instruments used. The bar
atone did'i't play in perfect harmony, and the
fellow who blew the the tenor cornet was
slightly "off color," but the drum and tin pan
men most p«suredly did get in their work.
There was nothing asthetic in the music nor
was it soulful or soothing, but it was all there,
PS the people of the whole town can testify. Mr,
and Mrs Kaufman were married in Evansburg,
last Saturday. Mr. K. is a steady and indus
trious young man, now in the employ of S. G,
Purvis <& Co., and the bride's maiden name
was Emma Boos. She is a daughter of Jacob
Boos, of this town.
—The rogues who travel with O'Brien's
show got the best of at least three of our citi
zens last Wednesday, and the worst ease is that
of a citizen of Lancpster township, from wnoqi
they took SI,OOO. This man, an old farmer,
was met on the street by a man who introduced
himself as Mr. Stanley, of Philadelphia, a land
agent or buyer. Stanley WPS going to the
show to see the "wooly horse" and induced
farmer to go with him. Farmer went with
him to depot. Both walked along track to see
circus cars, Stanley psked man in car if "wooly
horse" had arrived yet. Man in car said
"wooly horse" had not but would be along
soon, and invited them in. They got in car.
Man in car showed cards and wanted them to
bet. Both bet and each won SSOO (?) Man in
car won't pay over the money until lie knows
that they are responsible, are worth together
at least SI,OOO. Farmer asserts he is worth at
least ten times that, and comes up street and
borrows SI,OOO at Bank. Circus men shadow
him. Farmer goes back to car and lays down
his SI,OOO, for man with cards to count. Man
with cards count* it, sticks it in his pocket and
starts of*. Farmer dazed, but follows him.
Card man comes back, talks him out of raising
a disturbance, gives him his note for SI,OOO,
and gets him not to say anything about it.
Farmer comes up street a sadder, perhaps wiser
man, and don't Bay[ai>jthing about it tilljoUow
ing Friday. On Friday he was induced to
make information against the parties and a
warrant for them and O'Brien, on whose prem
ises the swindle was perpetrated, was placed in
the Sheriff's hands. The other swindling that
we have heard of was done inside the big tents.
Men selling concert tickets offered small bills
for large ones and pocketed the large bills
without giving change. A Jefferson township
man, who let them handle his roll of bills, is
out $43 by this game. These swindlers were
backed up by a crowd of roughs who knocked
down, one man, a Mr. Duffy, of Clay township,
and severely abused him. Warrants were is
sued for these roughs and an unsuccessful
search was made for them during the evening
performance. Sn'ffDonaghy went up to Frank"
lin, Monday, taking Mr. Peter Kramer with
him. Arriving there they had their warrant
renewed, and then went to the show and arrest
ed Mr, O'Brien, who disclaimed any knowl
of the transaction, but who, after some talk
with the candy-stand uian, agreed to settle the
matter by paying the sheriff S7OO. This the
Sheriff finally agreed to, as being the best that
could be doncunder the circumstances. The
swindlers themselves, could not be
identified. The manwho was swin
dled was not .taken along because
he said he could not identify them, and it is
doubtful whether O'B. couldhaye been held had
he been brought here. After paying the Sher
iff and all expenses, the farmer will probably
get SSOO of his money back, which is better
luck than he could reasonably expect.

Prospect Academy Commence
PROSPECT, PA., June 23,1*83.
Friday last was a day that will not soon be
forgotten by tlie people of Prospect. The ed
ucational enterpise of this part of the county
was seen in the interest taken iu the closing
exercises in the U. P. Church of the first term
of Prospect Academy.
Fair and bright shone the firm on Friday
morning and we were encouraged iu our hope
for a fine day. This educational entertainment
attracted an attendance larger than is usual for
any meeting in Prospect. When the opening
hoar drew near it wiis seen that the church
would not comfortably seat all present, ami as
soou as the doors were opened we ail hurried to
secure comfortable positions. Soon all the
pews were occupied, the gallery filled, the
benches placed in the aisles crowded and stand
ing room at a premium. This is the largest
church in Prospect but it wcs too small for the
occasion. At 1:30 Prof. Crowe and the clpss of
] er.'ormers came down the aisle and took their
reits < n the rostrum. Then followed this pro
Prayer, by Rev. Young. Salutatory, Miss
Emma McLure, the salutat >ry was goo<i, WM
spoken distinctly ami listened to very attentive
ly. As a student she is second to none.
The first essayist, Miss Lille Lehman, of
Portersville, read au excellent paper on "Dis
appointment." Sir. 11. B. Alexander, of Pro - -
pcct, followed with a well delivered oration on
Miss Jeuuie McClelland, of Coaltown read an
essay on "Garfield." The subject wf a great
and good oue and ws well disccssed. Miss
McClelland said that although perseverance
might not accomplish all things, with the proper
motives and energy any one may become Hon
ored and respected. Garfield did not become
great because he began life poor and friendless.
Mr. 0«F. Kiester, of Prospect, addressed the
audience on "Footprints of American History."
Many were as' >nisned at the able manner in
which Mr. Kiester showed that in America and
in names of America we can trace the hist >ry
of our country as easily ps Robinson Crusoe
knew by the foot nrints iu the sand that a hu
man being had visited his lonely island.
Miss Nettie Heberling, of Portersville, fol
lowed with a well read essay on "Life's Har
vest." This closed with the pertinent ques
tion, "What shall the harvest of your life be?
Mr. J. P. Wilson, of Prospect, delivered au
interesting and thoughtful oration on "The
Present Century." Mr. Wilson's oration was
very carefully written.
'•The Ocean" was ihc subject of the last cssiy
of the day hy Miss Ella Beighlcy, of Whites
town. This subject was treated in an able man
ner, sbowiug the simila. ity between or - livts
and the v. st deep. Mr. F. I. Cunningham, ot
Whi.estowu rendered in a felicitous manner,
with good eflect his itict of "Oie-t Men." lie
said "The true liero, the truly great man is not
always h- ] who aecompll<h"s the greatest re
sults ; who.does, the trost wondei ul deeds,
who excels his fellow < ouipetitors in the con
test, who gains the prlne, who reaches the goal;
but it is he who strives to do great and uobie

Prospect, was an appiopriate end'-ig ol the ex

sentiments and not empty words.
The exercises were 'nterspersed with excel

EDS. CITIZENS : While the air is fra
grant with the odor of flowers, our ears
are ringing from the constant hwm of
the army of locusts. For all they are
so numerous here, it is said there are
none in Venango county, north of
Sandy, which ii vory strange. It
seems strange also, that anything so
small should make such adeafeniagroar.
It is, jperhaps, difficult to tell exactly
how the noise is made. Your last is
sue says, "by rubbing their wings to
gether." Iu examining the locust, we
find a white spot under each wing. IJy
examining this spot closely by the
glass, we fiad it is a very delicate shell
not thicker than fine tissue paper, and
has the appearance ot being corded, or
composed of very fine scales. Immedi
ately below this, under the legs, there
is a large heavy scale, re mbling the
scale of a fish. Under this is a little
white pair of bellows, which, when the
locust is hollowing—as we term it —are
constantly in motion, and can be seen
working as distinctly as the bellows of
a blacksmith's forge, and the little deli
cate ccrd, or scales of the small white
shell under the wing, can by the aid of
the glass, be seen vibrating very rapid*
ly, causing the little shell to rattle, I
presume on the same principal that the
rattlesnake makes his ringing noise
with his rattle, which sound it very
much resembles. Whether the little
pair of bellows actually forces air
through these delieatj cords or scales
of this little shell, causing the vibra
tions or not, I leave for some one more
scienced than myself to tell, but this is
evidently where the noise is produced
and not by a rubbing together of the
What we think of the Dukes shoot
ing affair. While two wrongs never
make a right, it is sometimes our duty
to choose the lesser of two evils.
While law is to be regarded, aud the
country protected from mob law, an
archy and slaughter, so are the sacred
virtues and shrines of our families
to be protected. Designing young
men—and older ones too—must know
that their deceptions are crimes, sec
ond only to murder, and can
not go unpunished while their
victims - the innocent party
—must bear his and her shame for Ii f e.„
In this case such brazen faced decep
tion and seduction is seldom seen, and
should be suddenly checked as it was.
To have wrought the ruin Dukes
wrought aud go unpunished was
shameful to our State, but such exulta
tion over his crimes and the ruin he
had wrought, if allowed to go unpun
ished, would be to encourage seductions
and deceptions, to endanger the happi

Many from this township attended
the commencement exercises of the
Pine Grove Academy held in the Grove
City Park, on 21st inst. The com
mencement was very largely attended.
Ilarrisville is preparing to celebrate
the 4th of July with a general demon
stration of speaking and sports in day
time and fireworks at night. Hon.
Lewis Z. Mitchell is to do the speaking.
Corn in this township is very late
ami the ground was badly washed in
places by the late rains. Other crops
look good. MILO.
Our corresponds will see by this
issue that we have also investigated
the "locust" somewhat, and found
where the noise they make comes from
and how made.—[En.]
New P. & W. R. R. Officials
An important railroad meeting ot rail
road officials was held at Foxburg last
Tuesdav, among whom in attendance
were President Callery and Wm. Sein
ple, of the Western, and resulted|Jin
the consolidation of the Pittsburgh,
Bradford and HufTulo railroad, extend
ing from Foxburg to Kane, with the
Big Level and Bradford railroad, ex
tending from Kaue to Bradford, where
it connects with the Rochester and
Pittsburgh. The new lines, now all
included in the Pittsburgh and West
ern system, pass through all the oil
fields between Pittsburgh and Allega
ny county, X. Y., and reach the great
timber tracts of Nothern Pennsylva
nia. The move is without doubt the
greatest undertaking by the Western
in its short but interesting history.
The result will be the standard guag
ing of the entire line between Alleghe
ny City and Bradford, a work that has
already been accomplished on part of
the Pittsburgh and Western. An
election of officers was held after the
consolidation, resulting as follows:

I©-Wash-day has no terrors for the household where DAY'S SOAP is used, no unpleasant
and sickening odors to fill your houses, no laborious rubbing on the wash-board, while the
washing can be done in one-half the time necessary by following the old worn-out method.
MAT) A M—for it is to the ladies we desire to speak more especially—you are the interested per
son in this matter: yoq it is that suffers the ills arising from the wash tub and its heavy cares; you it is
fo whom the perplexities and responsibilities of the household rightfully belong, and you it is that should
interest yourself in a trial of the qualities of this soap, that has always proven itself to be a boon of salvation
TO BUliTiilKnrO HUMAMITY.- —
We do not come to you with a plausible story calculated to have you try it, simply for the amount
of money such a sale would bring us; we do not come to you as irresponsible parties, who have no reputa
tion to suffer calumny, but we do present to you this brand cf soap upon an absolute guarantee and
recommendation of a well-known industrial establishment of Philadelphia, of sixteen years'existence.
Do you suppose for a moment it would compensate us to make false statements to you and ruin our
well-earned reputation ? No, dear reader; what we say about DAY'S SOAP is the truth, and it is sus
tained by the evidences of thousands of housewives from all over the country; besides which we stand
ready to endorse it all with ready Cash. fSTDAI'S SOAP is the Original and Only Patented.*&L

do. It will in no way Cojiue the finest fiabrlcs or the mostdellcate complexions. j
No soda, no washing crystals, no lyes are to be used, but simply supply yourself for the
next wash-day with a bar of DAY'S SOAP, then carefully read the directions and follow them to
the exact letter, and if you don't say pitch out that old wash-boiler, for I am a wiser woman, you
will be the first person we have yet heard of that has been disappointed.
B@™NOW remember —If you don't intend to follow the directions do not try the soap at all, for
unless you do this you v/ill be disappointed, and then you will scold us and yourself as well.
The cost of one cake will convince you that it is the best and cheapest soap ever offered you,
while the smiles that will encircle your brow will do justice to a golden sunset.
Have you confidence in this newspaper ? If so, do you suppose the owner would allow us
to swindle his readers by offering them tempting inducements? He uses it in his own home, and can
certify to its merits. Now you get a cake from your grocer in time for the next wash-day, and become
acquainted with its intrinsic worth. _
Ask your grocer for it, and do not allow him to put you off with anything else for a substitute, for
every dealer can obtain it, and should he refuse you, send direct to
