Hugs and Kisse* in Court.
Hugs and kistses have been legal
tender between lovers from the begin
ning. but the money value of a liberal
supply given to a millionaire has just
been "determined by a jury iu New
One Charles Arbncklo bought
coffee cheaply, and by the easy device
ot roasting it and putting it np in
pound packages, with attractive la
bels, sold it dearly. By following
this simple me'.hod for years he accu
mulated around million of dollars
He was now approaching fifty, and
bethought him that his daily allow
ance of coffee would be better for a
little sweetening. In 1882 be met
Clara Campbell, the daughter of a
wealthy iron manufacturer of Ohio.
Clara was fat,fair and less than forty.
She was an accomplished musician,
with indefinable longings for the tri
umphs of the operatic stage. Iler
new millionaire admirer after a few
weeks' acquaintance concluded that
she should not waste her Bweetness
on desert audiences, being a woman,
Miss Campbell was easily persuaded
that matrimony was to be preferred
to opera, and consented to marry the
mature Arbuckle, a six hundred and
ten dollar engagement ring sealing
If they were a pomewhat mature
couple, Arbuckle aod bis Clara did not
see why they should not indulge in the
endearments that usually m ike the
lives of younger lovers a continuous
dream of bliss. As cruel fate decreed
that they sboald be separated for a
time, they wrote daily missives of
love and confidence. The stout and
ardent millionaire became "Baby
Bunting," while the fair Clara was
christened "Bnnnie" The daily
missives that passed between fifty
year-old "Baby Bunting" and his
charming "Buanie" were full of "h's
and k's," which, in the vernacular of
love, meant "hugs and kisses." Ar
backle was fond of signing himself K.
M. Q. The love quickened eyes of
"Bunnie" had no trouble at all in
reading these cabalistic initials They
stood for "Kiss me quick," and she
knew it without beiug told. Instruct
ed by "Baby Bunting" '-Bunnie" be
«tan to lock for a house that wonld
bold all the happiness that kind for
tune seemed anxious to bestow apon
this couple whose affections wereuow
at the period of full ripeness.
But when did the course of true
love ever run smoothly ? Even old
and very ardent lovers have found
their hopes wrecked ere now The
blighting frost has nipped affection in
the seasou of fruitage as well as in
that of budding So it fell ont with
"Baby Bunting" Arbuckle and "Bun
nie" Campbell After about a year
of epistolary bliss, during which the
mails were constantly freighted with
bugs and kisses-on paper—the father
of Miss Campbell failed in business
Arbuckle fell sick as soon as be heard
of the failure. Ho continued to write
letters to his "Bunnie" and there was
no lack of h'a aud k's in the love-lorn
utterances of his pen, but he could not
set s day for the wedding. His liver
was oat of order and he was terribly
afflicted with malaria. For this com
bination of ills bis doctor prescribed
quinine end whisky and not matri
"Bunnie" grew impatient. She
bad given up the stage at the instance
of her lover. Her father's failure loft
her without money to invest in seal
skin sacques and caramels. Her
charms were maturing and delays
were dangerous. She urged her lov
er to fix the day of marriage, telling
him that hugs and treses at such long
ronge were far trom satisfactory to an
affectionate nature like hers. But
plead she ever so tearfully her "Baby
Bunting's" liver complaint aod ma
laria were so obstinate and unyield
ing that be never koew when ha was
going to be well enough to marry.
Tired out at last and convinced that
ber "Baby Bunting" never would
marry his "Bunaie," Miss Camphell
consulted her law per. who thought
oos hundred thousand dollars would
be about the value of her blighted
affections. After the service of the
papers in breach of promise case upon
tbe coffee millionaire he got well of
his malaria and liver complaint. He
continues to use quinine and whi sky,
however—probably as a preventive.
"Baby Banting"and "Bu»nie"neither
speak as they pass by nor exchange
epistolary bugs and kisses, the trial
took place last week, and on Monday
of this week, a right minded and sym
pathetic Jury, awarded tbe fair plain
tiff tbe sara of $45,000 of tbe defend
ant's money, for the less of tbe hugs
and kisses that she expected should
continue till death did them part.
A Venango County Vendetta.
The Franklin News tells the follow
ing singular story:
"A singular, but truthful, story is
brought from Plum township, where
it has created much talk aod local ex
citement. Two school girls, one 15
aod the other 11 years of age, had a
falling out, the older having imparted
a secret to tbe vounger which the lat
ter threatened to reveal. Tbe elder
of tbe two had hinted to some friends
that she would put the o6ender out
of tbe way. She got bold of some
arsenic that was in the house for
poisoning rats. On the way to school
she talked with the younger and,pro
ducing two papers of the poison, sug
gested that they both put an end to
their troubles by swallowing a pow
der Tbe younger girl heedlessly
assented and swallowed hers, while
tbe other merely pretended to do so
'•Fortunately the dose swallowed
was too large and was at once vomit
ed out. The child was taken very
sick, but was pulled through by
proper treatment. The affair, worthy
of the Italian vendetta, naturally
causes much feeling in the neighbor
hood, especially as the parents are of
high standing, the intended victim
being tho daughter of a minister."
Plenty to Eat.
Tbe report of the Department of
Agriculture at Washington, which
just been made public, concerning tbe
corn, wheat and oats crops of 1887
shows that there will be enoueh to
keep man and beast from starving be
sides leaving a pretty sum the pock
ets of the farmers. The corn crop
which isalwavs the most valuable
of American crops, is placed at 1,456,
000,000 bushels, with a value to tbe
farmer of $646.000,000: Wheat is
good for 456 OUO 000 bushels, worth
$300.000000. The oat crop is placed
at (j6'.'.0(H),000 bushels, worth ss2oo,
000,000 The three cereals being
good for $1,146,000 000. *
When to this is added tbe value of
tbe cotton, cattle, pork and other
agricultural products of tbe country
tbe sum total will reach an amount of
which American farmers will have a
good cause to be proud, The farmer
doneen't get rich ia a day, but tbe
aggregate value of bis productions
is a g<ven year make a very big sum
in dollars and cents.

A' Daring -Robtoerjr; -- - -1
One of the most dariug robberies '
ever perpetrated in Beaver County I
occurred a few nights ago at the resi- j
dence of Rev. Father Bigbam, pastor
ot St. Joseph's Catholic Church of
New Brighton. Mrs Cristy, house
keeper of the priest, bad been sick and
was occupying a room with Mrs ;
Mary McNally, who acted in the ca
pacity of nurse, and a niece about 14
years of age. At a late hour
Mrs. Cristy awoke and discovered
two masked men in the room The
robbers then drew their revolvers and
demanded her money. She replied
that she bad none. At this jancture, j
Miss Gertie Clarke, the niece, awoke, j
and seeing the men, began to scream,
and Mrs, Cristy, taking advantage of
tDe contusion, pressed an electric but-!
ton, which rang the beil in Father
Bigbam's room The priest, sudd ;n
--ly aroused, coufused, and half asl. ep, :
rushed uut into the hallway.thiukiug
tde woman bad been taken violently
ill and that his services were reqirr-,
ed. One of tbe rubbers tushed to the
ball and forced the reverend gentle- i
man into his room, where he at once
hid his valuables, money and watch I
The burglar then told him to open
the door or he would batter it down
Father Bigham replied, "I will nhoot
you through the door,"but the villain
hod prepared for this, by taking the
young lady out of bed and holding
her betore him, where she called to
the well nigh frantic priest not to
shoot as she would surely receive re-'
ceive the shot Toe priest then hid
the revolver aod opeued the door, when
the ourglar made a search of the j
roon but failed to find anything of>
much valne. He asked for the gold 1
watch which the priest always car- j
ned and upon it being explained to
him that it wa3 loaned to a brother, '
became so exasperasted that he dealt 1
Father Bigham a blow with his revol-'
ver which felled him to the floor, j
The robbers then forced the four or-,
enpants of the honse to walk down 1
stairs, and at tbe point of tbe revol
ver compelled the priest to open a
safe and give them the contents,
amounting to $1 15, which had beeu ,
taken in tbe Sunday school collection.
Ttoe pair theu departed after exacting
a solemn oath from all concerned, :
that they would not gi?e the alarm j
for an hour Several hours later!
Detective Lazarus, of Rochester, ar
rested three men on suspicion and
took them to Rochester, where two
ot them were positively identified as
tbe men who committed the robbery.
Death from Sympathy.
The Mercer Dispatch recounts a
strange dual as follows:
In our last issue we mentioned the
serious illness of Miss Margaret John
son, of Coolspring twp Her sickness
resulted in her decease about 5 o'clock
on Friday evening. Two hours later
ber twin Bister, Susan, died in a
*pasm of grief caused by tbe death of
her life companion. A strange one
ness in tbe existence of these ladies
is attested by the fact that during
their long lives, being 67 years of
years of age at the time of their
death, they were subject to tne same
diseases, and seemingly were of one
When Margaret's condition was
found to be critical, the day before
her death, Su«an remarked that if
"Margaret died she couldn't live,"
although at the same time she W<H
engaged in doing the family wash
ing OQ Friday Susan attended to
tbe household affairs as usnal. but a
short time before her sister died she
complaiued of beiui* tired and went
up stairs and laid down on tbe bed
When Margaret died she was inform
ed of the fact.but refused to arise,and
when some time after another sister
went to her they found ber in a dying
condition, and she breathed but a
few times after this discovery. There
were two hours difference in the birth
of Margaret and Susan, aud two
hours betwepn their deaths, and both
were buried in the same grave The
funeral services were held on Satur
day afternoon, the services being
conducted by Rev. G J. Squier, pas

Too Large for the Tunnels.
A Pittsburg dispatch says: "It may
seem like a fairy tale, yet it is true,
that the Pennsylvania railroad, great
as are its resources, is unable to fur
nish transportation for some of tbe
glass maue here, not, however, be
cause of its weight, but because it is
too large to admit ot its passage
through tbe tunnels along tbe route
of tbe road A Philadelphia archi
tect lately placed an order with a lo
cal manufacturer for two plates of
glasß to be used in a structure in tbe
eastern metropolis of Pennsylvania,
each to be in size 144 by 196 inches,
or 12 by 18 feet, but it was found to
be impossible to get rail transporta
tion for them. Nothing daunted,how
ever, tbe architect determined to bave
the glass at all hazard, aud has made
arrangements to have it shipped by
river to New Orleans, and thence by

A Terrible Affliction.
Miss Jennie McFate, a daughter of
Joseph McFate, who resides abont
four mi ea from the city, near Parks
town, went with a wedding party in
a buggy to Butler county, on Satur- i
day last, and returned in a buggy on !
Sunday. She caught a cold, and to-;
gether with the excitement incident j
to the wedding, the young lady re- !
turned to her home not telling well, j
She went to bed early Monday night,
and her fatuer and mother were sit
ting in the room with her. Suddenly
she asked for a Bible which was giv
en to her, when she began talking iu
an exceedingly wild, incoherent man
ner, so much so as to make her par
ents feel uneasy. She lay for a mo
ment or two without saying a word,
when she sprang from the bed, made
for the door and almost in the twink
ling of an eye, was out of the house
Her father started aod succeeded in I
following her for a short distance
when she managed to evade him and
was lost in the darkness. Miss Jen
nie had nothing on but a night gown
and was in her bare feet. Mrs. Mc-
Fate alarmed tho household, and the
neighbors were seut for, and at least
thirty pjople started out to find the
young lady. Some were on horse
back while a majority went on foot.
The search contiuued at least three
and a half hours, but the night was so
dark and cold that the searchers were
compelled to give it up and await the
coming of dawn. When they return
ed to the house, and had bjea seated
for a short time, the nearly distracted
family and friends were horrified to
to see the yoang lady enter the house
in the most dreadtul condition imag
inabla. Her (ace was torn, scratched
and bleediug; her hands were cover
ed with blisters, and were bleeding
in a doz-m different places; her night
gown wse almost torn off, while her
feet were tilled with thorns and were
scratched and bleeding. Sae had lost
her Bible in her wanderings and said
she had come back for another oae.
She rnußt have been wandering in
the fields, woods and thickets during
all the time being looked for by her
anxious friends. The night was a
cold one and when she reached homo
she was almoßt frozen by her terrible
experience. She w s placed in bed
and Dr. Mont Linville sent for at
once. When he reached Mr. Mc-
Fate's house th« young lady was
still raving, but the friends had got
ten her somewhat quiet The doctor
rendered the necessary aid A reporter
called on Doctor Linville on Thursday
morning and in auswer to questions
Dr Linville said the young lady was
Buffering from acute mania, probably
brought on by the cold aod excite
ment produced by her ride to Butler.
He said she was a little quieter but
was still violently insane, aud would
have to be watched for some time.
It is more than likely that the lady
will not get well
