largest concern of the kind in the country, al.
though there are perhaps a dozen telegraph

effected an organization called the Brotherhood

—Dr. Von Myerhoff arrived in Butler on
last Tuesday afternoon. He dropped in to see
us and announced his intention of prosecuting
those parties who have lately been slandering
him. Next day the Doctor was met in the
street by Kennedy Marshall and Samuel Mar
shall. Samuel asked him into Forquer's office,
and there demanded the letters that he and
his niece had written him. Some conversation
followed between the two, when Kennedy came
in and assaulted him. Forquer acted as peace
maker, and.the Doctor and Samuel took the next
train for Millerstown, where the letters in
question changed hands.
—As a rule farmers do not advertise what they
have to sell nearly as much as would be to their
advantage. If one has a farm, a cow, a horse,
hogs, sheep, or any other property to sell, he
may perhaps inform his near neighbors of the
fact, and tell them, if they hear of any one
wanting whatever he has to sell, to "send them
along." This may or may not secure them a
customer, while an advertisement in c. news
paper at small cost, would inform thousands of
readers of the fact that they had something to
sell, many of whom are equally desirous of

Derickson, two young men of excellent fami
nes in Meadville, were arrested on a charge of
fraudulently using the U. S. Mails, the offence
Consisting of mailing carefully worded circulars
offering to sell counterfeit money. The oases
came up for trial at Pittsburgh last week, when
Smith pleaded nole contendre and Derickson
'not guilty." When the case proceeded to
trial Smith took the witness stand and gave
some damaging testimony against Derickson.
Upon cross-examination he stood upon his priv
ilege and declined to answer, saying he might
criminate himself. Derickson was found
guilty, and fined $250 and costs, and Smith
was also lined $250.

The rash made its appearance a week or more
ago in the shape of a huge group of spots
which haye approached close to the center of
the sun's disk, and they have exhibited indi*
cations of volcanic activity accompanied at
night by displays of the aurora borealis. This
group, like most of the great sun-spots which
have been accompanied by auroras and mag'
netic storms, is evidently subjected to cyclonic
action, the effect of which is perceived in the
changes of form it undergoes. It is fully as
large as the group of spots that broke out on
the sun at the time of the great magnetic
storm of April, 1882, and can be 6een without
a telescope more easily than the plaaet Venus
was during her transit in December last. The
theory is advanced by some that the storms
and floods which haye swept across the conti

Krie on the Fourth. Albert Kuhn, a promi

boys kept it up all night and the next day.
About three o'clock he and his companions
got on a street-car and soon took possession of
it, drawing pistols aud firing a regular fusilade
Kuhn tiring recklessly into the street. The
ball from his pistol struck M iss Mary Steinen
a highly esteemed young lady, and passed
through her heart. The utmost excitement
ensued aud the druuken revelers came near
being mobbed. All were arrested and Kuhn
was committed on a charge of murder. An
hour or two later it was found that Frank
Kuhn, a younger brother, had disappeared.
Search being instituted his body was fouud
hanging in the cellar, he evidently having
committed suicide as soon as he became con
vinced his brother had killed MissSteiner.

—Miss Laura Boeson has reason to
be glad that she attended a party near
Connelsville last Thursday night.
About a year ago while sitting in the
parlor at her home in Columbus a
strange man thrust his head in at the
window, and, pointiug two revolvers
at her, exclaimed, "I have you now."
The young lady was so frightened that
she was unable to speak. Time pass
ed on, but her vocal powers did net re
turn and the doctors finally gave up
the case in despair. She is visiting
friends near Connelsville and attended
the party and while dancing in a quad
rille felt something snap in her throat,
and in her alarm attempted to cry out.
To her great amazement and delight
she was wholly successful. Her voice
had returned as suddenly and strange
ly as it had left her. The young lady
was the recipient of a great many con
gratulations. As she was indulging
in that unorthodox amusement, danc
ing, the clergy will perhaps not endorse
the remarkable restoration of her pow
ers of speech as another faith cure.

j|@ a 'Wash-day has no terrors for the household -where DAY'S SO Air ia used, no unpleasant
and sickening odors to fill your houses, no laborious rubbing on the wash-board, while the
washing can be clone in one-half the time necessary by following the old woru-out method.
MADAM —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 ofthe 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 gCTFFERIStfg HPMAim,-—"
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 I'hiladelphia, cf 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 wa say about DAY'S £OA1 J 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. S&-DA I 'S SOAP is the Original and Only 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 C3X©flllly TGnd th.o directions and follow tnoin to
the exact letter, and if you don't say pitch out that old for I am a wiser woman, you
will be the first person we have yet heard of that has been disappointed.
JSgyNow 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 tho 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 iu 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
