A Singular Incident.
Missus. EDITORO: —Allow me here to relate an
incident which took place in fa quiet village
about twelve miles from Butler. A few weeks
ago a lady and her daughter locked the outside
door, leaving the key in the lock and retired to
bed, but in a few minutes they heard the click
of the lock as if unlocking. The young lady
went and found the door unlocked. She opened
the door and looked out bnt saw nothing. She
locked the door leaving the key in the door and
retired again, soon to hear the sharp olick of the
door unlocking. She arose, found the door un
locked, looked out as before, again locked the
door and retired, not to sleep, for by this time
sleep seemed to have fled. The looking and un
locking was repeated at short intervals until
midnight. A short time before midnight the
lady, after looking the door, put the sewing ma
chine against the door but it aid not prevent the
unlocking. A boat midnight the door was locked
and remained I till morning. Theee facts were
told me by the yonng lady herself and corrobor
ated by her mother, and both are trustworthy,

—According to an article ia Harper't for
thia month the tecond and not the fourth of
July should be celebrated a* independence
day. It was on the seoond of July, 1776, that
the Continental Congress adopted Lee's resolu*

laration, written by Jefferson, was not approv
ed until the fourth, and that is how it came
about that the fourth and not the second is
now celebrated all over the United States—

field as some call it, after the man who put
down the first oil well there, is rapidly coming
to the front. There are now eleven pumping
wells there, with productions ranging from
thirteen to sixty barrels each per day, or about
400 in all. These wells are located on the Ker
rick, Heck, Gerstner and Krebbs farms. Eight
new rigs are up and wells going down on the
Heok, Kerriek, Vosbrink, Lowry, Durkin and
Mulligan farms. The Lowry farm well is
about completed and there are two rigs up on
the Vosbrink farm. Not a single dry hole has
yet been had in this territory. Since the above
was put in type we hear that the Lowry farm
well was completed Saturday and is doing from
25 to 50 barrels. It is owned by the Hoch
brothers of Millerstown.

ed him to fall a distance of 15 feet, severely, but
not fatally injuring him. Being well up in
years and a large man the wonder of his neigh'

—The survey for the branch of the S. A A.
connecting link, to run from a point on the new

as soon as the main road is completed. This is
likely but the beginning of an east and west

level road-bed, or a location for one.

—On account of bad management the Glass
Company, of Parker, has beoome embarrassed.
The Inst number of the Phoenix speaks as
follows : "At a stockholder's meeting of the
Parker Glass Company, limited, held in the
Oil Exchange on Friday last, a statement was
submitted by the Treasurer of the company to
the stockholders, in which it was shown that
the company has been doing business at a great
loss. The amount of the indebtedness exceeds
the credits and also the plant by several thous
ands of dollars. The prospects of continuation
under the limited partnership is not at all
feasible. What the outgrowth of the affair
will be is hard to tell; there seems at present
no alternative but that the property will be
sold out under the Sheriff's hammer."
[ —The body of W. M. Fitzaimmons, a young
man, son of Wm. Fitzsiinmons, dec'd., and
Elizabeth Fitzsimmons, (nee Grahaminow of
Jefferson township, this county, was found on

Ilaightd run, last Monday morning. He has
lately been clerking at the store of the .Etna
Iron Works, and at the time he met his death
was on his way to his home in Sharpebnrg,
from a visit to a young lady living near the

one of the most prosperous in the country, the
catalogue showing a total enrollment of 651
students. For further information copies of

—All the glass workers of the United States
and Canada, who belong to theirf Union, quit
work at 4 o'clock of Saturday afternoon the
:50th, ult. This includes the hands employed
in the glass works here, and the firm had to
hunt up a few non-union men to keep going
long enough to fill what orders are in. The
plans for the new ten-pot furnace and works
to be run in connection with the present works,
have been made, but the contract for building
has not yet been given.
—The house of Mr. Albert T. Pearce in
Butler township, with all its contents, was
consumed by fire on Friday morning, the 29th
ult. Mr. P, and a young son were the only
persons at home that day. He arose early that
morning, made a tire in the kitchen stove, and
then went to the barn. Returning shortly he
discovered that his house was on fire and burn
ing rapidly. He rushed up stairs and saved
his boy, who was yet asleep, but was not able
to save any of his household goods. The fire
originated from the kitchen flue, and there was
no insurance on the house.
—The act repealing the tax on patent medi
cines has been signed by the Governor, and no
further tax on these articles will be collected.
According to a circular sent by the Depart,
ment to County Treasurer Miller, any taxes on
these articles for 1883 that have been paid
since the sth of June will be returned to the
parties who paid them, but those paid before
that date will be retained by the State. The
act was approved on the sth of June, and in
this case prompt payment means the loss of
your money. The order is unjust and may be

plaintiff for $l5O and costs of suit.
—The house of Mr. Henry Sanderson, of
Clay township, with everything in it, except"
ing a little of the parlor furniture, was consum
ed by fire last Friday morning. The fire orig-'
inated in a bed room up stairs, over the parlor.
Mr. H. was in the room a few minutes before
the fire was noticed and can only account for
it in the supposition that he tramped upon a
match. He and his family, as well as three
railroad hands, who were boarding with them,
lost all their clothing. The house was insured
for a small amount in the North Washington
—The Franklin, Pa., Press enlarges on our
prayer meeting item as follows: "A Butler
father has hit upon an excellent expedient
for removing him who tarryeth too long with
the daughters of the household. A young at
torney called on one of the girls the other
night, and when a large section of the night
had worn away, and the family longed for rest
the father entered and paralyzed the persistent
lawyer by asking him to lead in family prayer.
The young man, not having any petition of
the sort drawn up, was forced to decline, lie
felt that he was called elsewhere, and soon
withdrew. It was another instance of the mov
ing power of prayer. Parents pestered with
lingering sparkers may find in prayer the
means of filling a long-felt waut. Make
Charles Augustus pray or paddle.
—The shooting ol JDavid Nittle, at the picnic,
on the Fourth, was a singular accident. Dave
was standing between the refreshment tables
and the nine-pin alley at the time, about fif
teen feet to the right and twenty feet back of
the target. The ball that is supposed to have
struck him, missed the target, passed through
an inch board, and must have changed its
course nearly 45 degrees. It entered the fleshy
part of his right shoulder, passed downwards
into his abdomen and has not yet been extract
ed. The doctors think it will do him no harm
at present asd that it would be dangerous to
cut it out during this hot weather. Dave was
moving about the house yesterday and was
feeling well. In the woods across the creek,
that day, some parties were shooting and it is
possible that the ball came from one of their
—Our bankers are now allowing but 85 cents
for trade dollars deposited with them. This
movement against the trade dollar was origin
ated in New York city a week or two ago, by
money-brokers who expect to profit by buying
them at 85 cents and then prevailing upon
Congress to again make them a legal tender.
For instance a profit of 15 cents each on the
five million trade dollars said to be in circula
tion in this country would amount to $750,000
and the same on the whole coinage of thirty
fiye million in circulation in this country and
China would amount to $5,250,000. There is a
great difference of opinion as to whether or no
Congress should make itself the tool of these
brokers. There is more silver in the trade dol
lar than there is in the standard dollar. Its
coinage was authorized in 1873, and the object
of the measure was to provide a coin for use in
our trade with China, no gold or silver being at
that time coined in that 'country. It was not
intended for circulation in this country, but the
depreciation in silver, brought it back herei
and by the act of 1876 its manufacture was
stopped and its legal tender quality taken
—The new railroad—S. & A. connecting
road—will probably be completed by the Ist of
next September. The Morehead cut is about
completed and the cut at the summit on the
McCall farm, in Clay township, will be finish
ed in a week or two. The ties and rails have
been laid as far down astheStonu House, in
Clay township. This road strikes the narrow
guage railroad a short distance above Mr.
Reiber's residence, east of town, and will
come in to the West Penn depot on the old
narrow guage bed, now out of use. A curve
or Y will likely be built at this point for the
accommodation of through trains. The new
road is being well built. There are no sharp
curves on it- and the highest grade—that at
the summit—is but one foot in a hundred or
52 feet to the mile. We understand that it is
especially intended for the through freight of
the P. R. It., which has it and the S. & A. R.
R. leased. Its completion will, we think,
make Rutler a desirable manufacturing point,
and will bring people here, as did the comple
tion of the P. & W. R. R. Two years ago
Butler was full of vacant houses, now there
are none, and next spring houses will probably

—Mr. Alfred Brenneman, of Perry township,
Lawrence county, a brother of William Bren
neman, the Portersville hotel keeper, commit"
ted suicide by hanging himself in his barn a
few days since. For some days previous he
had been complaining of a pain in his head
and seemed to be worrying over the fact that
weather was too wet to allow of his corn being
worked, which, in connection with bis rash
act, would indicate that his mind was affected.
The yeics, of New Castle, gives the following
particulars of the affair: "The deceased got
up this morning feeling as well as usual, and
without giving any intimation of the determin
ation he had made to kill himself, started out
to the barn to drive the cows in for his wife
to milk. Mrs. Brenneman waited patiently
for him to return, and after some time went
out to look for him. Though she called his
name a number of times she received no reply,
and she began to search in earnest. On going
into the barn she was horrified to find the
lifeless remains of her husband hanging from
the feed-box of a manger. He had placed a
halter about his neck and jumped from the
manger, which was a high one, and death was
probably caused by strangulation. The poor
woman hastily cut the halter but all efforts to
restore him to consciousness were in vain. He
was married about three months ago to Miss
Maggie but leaves two children from a
former marriage. He was about 35 years of
age, and has always borne a good reputation.
There is no cause that can be assigned for the
committing of the rash act, and as a conse"
quence the excitement about the ,place is in

Five Persons Belonging to one
Family Instantly Killed.
CINCINNATI, July 3.—A terrible ac

family were wiped out existence with

and were chatting gayly over their
plans for the morrow, when they reach
ed the crossing near destination at 9:10
o'clock. The crossing is without pro
tection of any sort. The horse was just
on |the track, when the New York,
Pennsylvania and Ohio express, due
here at 8:55, and behind time, came
thundering along, and before any of
the occupants had time to more than re

EDS. CITIZEN :—Tuesday 26th being
the day of the regular meeting of the
W. C. T. U., they met at the house of
A. B. Gildersleeve, one mile north of
Harrisville. Their meeting developed
a new and successful mode of filling up
the temperance ranks. No one had
any idea there were so many temper
ance women in Harrisville. It is as
tonishing what a wonderful anxiety
there IB to do something for the tem
perance cause when there is a meeting
to be beldjat the strawberry gardens.
The meeting was held at 3 P. M.
About 2 P. M., the "procession began
to move." Hack after hack and buggy
after buggy went pouring out to the
W. C. T. U. strawberry picnic. Only
one man was allowed to accompany
the women, and him they "drafted"
for a driver. They went in bravely
for womans' rights. Wonder when
they will hold their grand convention
to nominate a woman as candidate for
President. Why not? The party re
turned to Harrisville about dark, all
sober, but strawberries have been
rather scarce ever since.
Some boys, in experimenting with an
old cannon yesterday evening, fired it
off opposite the Methodist parsonage,
just as tbe Rev. Chesbro was about
starting to prayer meeting. They
loaded it with a piece of iron, and fired
it toward the parsonage. The iron
went crashing through the front of the
parsonage, doing considerable damage
in breaking glaßs and frightening the
inmates badly. MILO.

MESSRS. SEAIIURY & JOHNSTON:
I am slow to pin my faith to any new cura

PLASTER has won my good opinion. I find
it an exceptionally cleanly plaster to use and
rapid in its action. Many tests of its qualities
iu my own family, and among my patients,
have convinced me that there is no other sin
gle article so valuable for popular use, none so
helpful in cases of lame back, local rheuma
tism, neuralgia, congestion of the bronchial
tubes and lungs and lumbago.
You may feel free to use my name.
Very truly yours,

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.
|f ADAM—for it is to the ladies we desire to speak more especially—you are the interested per
son in this matter; you it is that suffers the ills arising from the wash tub and its heavy cares; you it is
to 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 SPFFERmB HPKtAMITY.—
We do not come to you with a plausible story calculated to have you try it, simply for the amount
of money sucha 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. J^l> Al'S SOAP is the Original and Onlj/ Patented.^*

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 olu wash-boiler, for I am a wiser woman, yom
will be the first person we have yet heard of that has been disappointed, n _
JJ®*Now remember —If you don't intend to follow the directions do not try the soap at all, for
unless you do this you will 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 fbr 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
