On Tuaaday afternoon of this week Clerk
McElvaiu granted a marriage license to Alex
aader Oilcbriatof ludiona l ;Po.. aud Margaret
Wise, who has been in this town for several
years, having lived with tbe families of Mr.
Chaa. Bebhuua and Ciaranoe Walker, Eeq.,
but who ia a native of Indiana Co., Pa. Mr.
Gilchriat, also lived in Butler thirty or forty
years ago, and ia the uocle of John Gilcbrist
formerly of Butler but now of Wheeling, and
Christy Gilchrist now dee'd. He ia sixty
one rears of age, ia totally blind, has a good
borne in Indiana, and ia receiving a pension
of about sloo a month for tbe loss o' his eyes
which were burnt out by on explosion during
tbe war. They were married by Rev, KM
bit that evening.
Shortly after this license waa granted, two
deaf-ma tea—Goo E. Williams of Peoro, Kan
sas, and Miss Ada Gardner of Petrolia, a sis
ter of Geo. Gardner tbe policemen, and also
ofthewifeof Mr Ireland, ol the firm ot Ire
land A Hugbea, Petrolia—applied for a li
cenae. Both are smart, intelligent, well ed
ucated people, who became acquainted with
each otlier at o deaf-uiute school some years
ago. They bad a daughter of Mr. Ireland,
who understands the sign language, with
them oa interpreter, and with her aid, and
their complete knowledge of reading and
writing hart no trouble answering the necess
ary questions, taking the oaths and aubscrib
ing to the docket.
They then went over to E«q. Walker's of
fice, where tbey answered tbe qoee'iou* iu
writing, joined hands, aud with th* aid ot' the
little girl were married. Mr. Williams own*
0 farm of 2'X) acres uetr Peora and is a well
to-do f.»rm«.-r, and Miss Garduer is a fine
woman aud thorough housekeeper
Both these strange marriage* will ia all
probability be very happy ones.
Another license worth mentioning was
that taken out by a young French couple, a
few divs ago, in which another French man,
who *p?ke English, acted as interpreter.

The following ridiculous story re
garding the Pittsburg «fc Western
railroad has been published, aud as it
makes interesting reading for people
who believe in ghosts wi- reprint it
"1 don't suppose there is another
railroad in the c ountry that a train
haod can get a job on so eisiiy a-i be
cm on the little Pittsburg & West
era out IU the Pennsylvania oU re
gions," said a former employe of
ihit roi.J, now on the Erie. ' There
is a! ways a chance there for a rail
roader, whether he's a brak**man,
fireman, conductor or engineer, and
there isn't a nicer road anywhere to
woik on, and the wages are big/er
than the biggest. But rn-ja ure quit
ting it all the time, and among !he
m« n who are hired in their places
you never see one who ever wo~ked
on the. road before, and the firnt thing
you ko-'W ibey are calling f r their
time and tbrowiug up their job?. The
boys often run across others out of a
jjb and say to them: 'Why don't you
g> oi the Pittsburg & Western?
want m-n bid Nino times
out of 10 t*iey witi rep ; y: 'No Pitts
burg & Western for u?,p,«ase, We've
been there.'
"What's the matter with the
Pittrburg & Western?" the re
"Haunted," replied the railroader.
"That's right, Laugh if you want to.
I'm thinking you wouldn't laugh
mucu, though, if you should ever tun
au engine down Cranberry S vamp
grade, between lt*mfrew aid Reibold
stations, with old Bill K'a.g'* g l >s*,
in theeib with you aud trying to
stop tbe train to keep it f rom runcing
down two otber ghosts Btandin-r on
the track just ahead of your engine,
and almost sto, ping it. to >, although
the grade is steep and slippery, be
tween Renfrew and lleibolds Take
the map of Pennsylvania, look at
Butler county, you'll find those two
places there plain enouzh, and 1
know that if you ever took a run
Uown Cranberry Swamp grade, on
the little Pittsburg <fc Western, be
tween Renfrew and Reibolds, with
old Bill King's guost in tbe cab with
yoa, you wouldn't laugh much.
"The way tbe road got haunted in
that spot was this: Not far from tbe
railroad at tbe loot of tbe Cranberry
Swamp grade about 10 years ago
lived an old couple named Wilbelm.
They had no family besides them
selves, and they depended on a CJU
ple of acres of garden aud their cow
and poultry yard for their living.
One of tbe first Jersey cows in that
part of tbe country belonged to Mrs,
Wilbelm, it barium been made a pres
ent to her by a noted stock raiser in
Crawford county. Mrs. Wilbelm
thought the world of the cow, aDd
when it strayed from its enclosure,
got on the lit le P & W track and
was run over and killed by tbo cart
tbe old lady weot almost wild.
"She sued the company for the val
ue of ber co.v, but the suit went
agaiust ber. She brooded so over
ber trouble that she became insane on
tbe subject of railroads ami ber c>w,
aud tbe souud of a traiu passing her
bouse ul ways sets her to mourning'
over loss. She spent much of
her tiniis in devising schemes to
harass the company, and several
times evading the watchfulness of
her husbandsbe placed here-ilr on the
tbe track when a train was approach
iug and forced it to come to a stand
stiil till she was removed by force
from the rail (_) ie night late in the
fall of 1577 old Mr Wilbelm woke up
acd found that his wile was not in
bed H" quiekiy arose, au i looking
out of tbj window saw a white figure
hurrying across the lot between the

near that it threw gUre full ou
her. Old Biil bid seen the figure in
white sumo distance hack, whistled
for brakes and reversed his engine,
