—We call attention of our merchants to
the advertisement of J. Klee & Co., 811 Lib
erty St., Pittsburg, and »iJ< and Gi), Broal
way, New York. This House manufactures
its great line of clothing, from chillreos' up
to mens'; altogether in their New York
house where its facilities for constantly se
curing new Ktyles is unequalled by any
other Pittsburg house. It is the oldest in
this line in Pittsburg, and are in fact among
the pioneers of this country. In their stock
you can find everything in the way of ready
made clothing which surpass in manufacture,
cut and trimming* any goods made in Pitts
burg. We cm recommend this house as of
undoubted reliability, and merchants will do
themselves credit to inspect their stock.
—A committee of our T.<wn Council is
now visiting every section of our town, and
making a note of every defective board walk,
and all the owners will receive due notice to
repair their walks With two suits a week
against the borough for darrnges by reason
of defective walks, this action of the Council
is taken none too soon. There seems to be
some defect in the law regarding side *alks,
which interferes with the Council enforcing
their ordinances regarding them, but by giv
ing legal notice to tbe owners of these defec
tive walks, the responsibility is thrown up in
them, and people in jured by reason of de
fects in walks will bring suit against the
owner* of the property. It is a poor rule
that don't woik both ways, and equity will
remedy the law.
—One of our citizens was caged the other
day for abusing his wife, and a contemporary
suggest* that be was celebrating the license
victory. This may have been ;the case, for
men of a naturally sour disposition are made
more sour by liquor, and in that condition,
they generally seek their best friends to
quarrel with. Men of a sweet disposition,
however, are made sweeter by liquor, and in
that condition are as full of fun as a frollick
ing kitten. They never quarrel with peo
ple, and particularly with their wives, save
when the wive* arc fractious or obstinate,
and the very worst thing a man—be he
either s-<ber or drunk—can do to a fractious
wife is to beat her. Better by far, bastinado
her with your tongue, be-thurnp her with
words—quote Shafeecpeare at her—an un
failing remedy, Quote Shakespeare at your
fractions wife and nhe is bound to become as
coy and gentle as a sucking dove.

A Strange Libel Case.
The little barber of Harmony, nam
ed Chan. Simmons, had a hearing be
fore Esq. Walker Wednesday after
noon on a charge of libel, preferred
by his father-in-law, Mr. Christian
Siebert, now of Franklin, I'a , and
not being able to secure the 0 bail
required, was committed to jail.
Simmons, who appears to be a weak
minded sort of a person, married a
daughter of Siebert same years ajro,
and has for some time entertained the
idea that his father-in-law has at va
rious times since his marriage been
criminally intimate with bis wife, or
in other words been guilty of incest,
so he sat down and wrote out bis
ideas in a little passbook and mailed
it to a Mr. A. B. Whitman, of
Creek township, Venango county.
Whitman gave the book to Siebert,
and hence the charge.
Rev. L L Luse, a former Kr.e
county clergyman, who was recently

Luse was being prosecuted in revenge
by a man whom he hid jailed at one
time for some offense. He will re
turn to Erie co'inty and resume h;s
charge as one of the ministers of tbe
M. E. Conference.

While in the midst of an exciting
trial in the Clearfield court, according
to the Ilajlxmen'a Journal, two tele

room and handed each of the two op

envelope. Tne learned gentlemen
(elt sure they were telegrams an
nouncing some event of grave im
portance, and began tearing them
-fjpen with the air ol men who imag
ine they have the world by the seat
of the pants, as lawyers sometimes
do. But instead of dispatches, two
hideous valentines were disclosed.
The court smiled, the jury laughed,
and the victims looked crest fallen.

tors in the Chicago pork market—

tative in Meadville, Rod. Michael, for
$7,300 which they were defrauded
out of in a recent deal in pork.
—An Oil City minister had some
cards printed inviting the traveling
men who were spending the Sabbath
in town to attend divine service at
his church. He then got the land
lords of tbe different hotels to place
one of the cards at each plate in their
dining room, and as a consequence
fortv-five of the drummers went to
hear him preach.
Straight Out from the Shoulder.
Following the granting of licenses
in New Castle last week, the Leader
says Revs. Durilap and Calkins, of
the First and Second Presbyterian
Churchs, last Sabbath preached vigor
ous and straightout sermons on the
temperance question, defining most
uncompromisingly the position, in
their opinion, that Christiana should
hold on the subject. Two of the
Judges granting the licenses are
members of Mr. Dunlap's church, one
being an elder, and an elder and dea
con of the same church were attor
neys for tbe applicants, which makes
the words of the pastor of more than
passing interest In referring to tho
license liquor saloon, Rev. Dunlap
held that no half-way course should
be taken in tbe matter of putting
down the whole license system. He
said :
"Suppose tbe pastor cf one of our
churches believes in a license law and
unholds it; a prominent officer of the
same church is a member of the same
court, and grants a license to a man
of good moral character who belongs
to tbe same church. Why not? If
it is right to license it is right to be
licensed. If it is right to authorize a
man to keep a saloon it is right to
keep a saloon. Now what happens?
Why that officer and pastor proceed
to expel tbe saloon keep from the
church, for they have no choice in the
matter, the general assembly has so
declared the rules and discipline.
That is, they as Christians excom
municate a man for doing what they
as citizens authorize him to do." He
further said: ' Thank God the liquor
license lasts only for one year. If I
knew that one of these men was to die
during this year 1 would advise him
to have his license among his choic
est treasure?; have it laid in biscoflirj
when dead; have it pressed in his
cold, clammy fingers, HO that when
called to confront his victims before
his (iod it may be his plea of justifica
tion, as he lays down at the bar of the
Kternal Judge his precious license,
duly signed by the judges of quarter
sessions. Yes, he will surely need it,
for if it be righteous hero it will be
there, but if not? Oh, repent before it
is too late."— Ex.
