Tbe Last of tbe Shanties.
It is to be regretted that a photf
graph was not taken of tbe last of th
old, small buildings on tbe Douga
rows of this place, tbe removal o
which took place last Monday. Thi
idea of a photograph or this "last o!
the lot" was suggested, bnt the old
"Squire's iffice" went down scone
than was expected. Its peculia
shape, and the broken and disjointed
boards, signs and letters npon it e
front, made it an object worth pre
serving tbe memory of. It had als<
become memorable as a seat of lav
and justice. Esquire Samuel G. Fur
▼is, deceased, for near twenty year?
administered justice in it, as a Justice
of tbe Peace. He was followed b]
others in tbe same capacity, amonj
them Enquire J. G. Muntz, who to
■any years acted usefully as a Just id
of the Peace ia that tenement He wai
followed by L. P. Walker, Esq. R
C. McAboy, Esq,, has tbe credit o
being tbe last one, and was acting ii
the same duty up to recently. Bu
it is gone, gone forever, the place tha
knew it to koown it no more, but to b<
supplied by a new and modern fash
ioned storehouse,to be erected by ou
friend, Mr. Frank F. Anderson.
Primary Election.
The Republican Primary Electioi
comes off tomorrow, Saturday. Thi:
really is the important election for thi
Republicans of this County, as who
ever are nominated now will io al
probability be elected in the fall
Therefore there should bo a full tun
out and the best men nominated.
Tbe positions on the ticket oi Del
" egates to the National and State Con
vcctions are filled absolutely at th<
primary, and the primary tberefon
cods that work. These Delegate*
are trust positions, which should IK
committed by the voters into trust
worthy bands. They are not posi
lions to be hawked about and peddiec
or traveled over the county for. Tht
interest* and M:ntimtnts of tbe peopl*
of tbe county alone should be consult
*-d in tbe selection ofdelearatea to rep
regent them in Conventions. With
candid»i<*n for the offices to b» elected
this fail they cf course are expected
to cinvaso the county, and we believe
have beea (king so, to an extent hi
lrr.st sufficient to bring out a pretty
fair vote at the primary, to-morrow
Tax death of Hon. Benjamin Har
ris Brewster, of Philadelphia, in the
Jjod ve»r of bis age, ends the career
of a notable iuan. Mr. Brewster oc
eapied Mime hij/h positions in boti
the Bu;te and Nation, and was a man
of much learning and eloquence. Re
w«f, however, a most peculiar look
ing as well as in Itis habits and
urt-i-s, alw.-vs dreeing in sicguiar
ai.ci rather saowy style. But with
all Lis ;«.eoliar'.iifc-3 he was respected
and honored for his abilities* and his
personal worth as a mua.

New Caslle Delegates.
We bud exacted to be aMe this
week to give the full list of candi
dates, settled upon iu each of the 15
Bub districts of th 3 County to repre
sent the same at the coming New
Castle Convention. but up to this
writing Lave not been fully informed
as to the "nine. In some districts we
beiieve they aro fully settled upon,
whiie iu some others there may lw
two or more candidates. Hence W-J
are unable.to give names. It i< a
matter for the voters of each district
to determine at the polls on Saturday.
Qood men should be cho3en
in all cases, men of
standing aud character, who will
faithfully obey aud carry out the de
cision of the people.
THE story of "Minne-wa wa,V to
be seen on the first page of the <_ITI
ZKN this week,will be read with inter
est by the people of this town, as
soma of the principal scenes in the
story are laid as happening at a weli
known spot, now withiu our borough
limits. The story itself is founded
upon old Indian traditions. The "sour >
spring" still exists, but we presume
there would be a difference of opinion t
as to whether its water became and j
remain sour by reason of the cause j
assigned in the story. As to wheih
er Massy Harbison, in her escape anil
flight from the Indians really crossed ■
the Connoquenessiug at that point, i?s i
also an open question. Bat the story j
of Minne-wa wa is very happily and j
well written, and will greatly add to |
the literary reputation of our ycung
friend, the writer, of this place, and
now at College at Columbus, Ohio,
in the journal of which institution,
the "Spectator," we found the story.
REPUBLICAN Primary Election—
The Truth Well Told.
Col. W. P. Hepburn, of lowa, in a
speech delivered at the recent lowa
State Couvention, draws the differ-1
ence between the two parties as fol
lows: . |
"The principal objection which is
now urged against the Republican
party is in regard to its vitality; it ;
won't die. The enemy complains
that it has outlived its usefulness.
The platform which was made in tui.-s
hall three years ago announced that!
no issue is settled until it is settled ■
right. In bis judgment no question j
is settled right so long as 10,000 men
in Georgia elected 11 men to Con
gress while it takes 32,700 votes in
lowa to elect the same number of
men ta Congress. So lonjr as a man
can serve in the Presidential chair no
longer than a dozen months ago who
a letter to South Carolina com
plimenting John C. Calhoun, things
ore not settled right. So long as the
man who commended Jeff. Davis to
the children of the country can be ap
pointed to a high office, so long as a
flag can be degraded to honor the
memory of a traitor like Jake Thomp
son, things are not 6e»tled right.
[Cheers ] So long as a Se.iator can
be taken hy this administration and
placed in the cabinet and subsequent
ly put ou the Supreme Bench, who
says 'no man can call in question the
' patriotism of Jt-ff Davis in my pres
-1 ence,' things are not settled right.
These are questions now prest-iug
' upon the people that no other pujty
than the Republican party can make
right. There is a necessity for the
Republican party which dares to
grapple with these great questions so
long as the anarchists are shouting
for division and destruction. What
party is the friend of Henry George ?
There is not a man in the country
who follows the red flag, who dooa
not hope that victory will porch oa
the Democratic party, as every
polycamist in Utah wishes for it Do
you ever hear of the Democratic party
rebuking the ballot box
the Ku Klux of the South. Where
! do you ever find the Democratic party
grappling with transportation ques
tions; where will you find a Demo
crat, or where can you look with hope
to Democrats to meet the great ques
-1 tion of trust ? Such questions are
i for the Republican party to meet,
and it alone will undertake the work
, Why is it that the Democratic party
is today unwilling that Dakota should
1 become a Slate, having 600,000 peo
- pie, a greater population than at least
; three Democratic States? Because
, they came with a Republican form of
goverment, and because it thoy did it
would be necessary to reform the map
of illiteracy of the United States
If vou examine the maps of illiteracy,
which are prepared so that you can
tell by the dark shadings whore tbc
mo6t* illiteracy comes, you will find
i that the dark shadings are right
, where Grover Cleveland got the ma
jorities which elected him. The real
trouble also in the tariff question is a
" similar one. The Democratic party
I will not dare to attack Ihe sugar tariff,
. for it would lose them Louisiana and
j seven electoral votes. They dare not
ofiend the South, yet they soy they
are tariff reformers. But tiiere is a
' differeuce when the Republicans talk
• about reforming the tariff. When
! the Democrats reform the tariff they
, propose to destroy the protective prin
ciple, which is the vitalizing force of
' all the industries of the country,
while we believe in regarding the
■ principles of the present tariff and
. lopping off the inequalities. They
say we ought to feel as much for the
people across the ocean, but. somehow
we can't do it. We like one of our
* own people here iu America better
■ than one of those from across the
water. The Democratic reformer
says, let the foreigner with his cheap
labor in other countries stacid on au
equality with the mail who has been
' long here and has tniilt up this coun
! try. We prefer that wages should
. be high here rather than they should
' be high there. That is the difference
between the two parties."

Ex-Senator Conkling's Career
Drawing to Its Close.
NEW YORK, April 0. lloscoe
Cmklinu's condition changed much
for the worse last ni«:ht. lie was
buoyed up in the evening by the pre
sence of his wife, whom he bad not
been pe milted to see since bis illness
became serious. After her departure
he sank into a stupor from which no
aroused but at loug intervals, nod
then only to dif-play symptoms of de
lirium. "Dr. Asrnew, the eminent oc
ulist, called at Air. Conkling s resid
ence last night. At the time of his
leaving the patient seemed to he not
much worse, though his temperature
had risen perceptably Dr. Fordyce
Barker said today that he feared Air
Conkling's ocular trouble had caused
an affection of the bram which may
prove fatal. "All I care to say just
now," said Dr. Barker, "is that Mr.
Conkliug has bid a bad change with
in the last twenty-four hours and is
very poorly indeed. I have called in
Dr. Sands acd Dr. Delafield, at:d
they iu company with Dr. Aguew and
myself will visit the patient."
At 2:30 P M. Mr. Conkling's con
dition was unchanged from tbo last
report. At 2 o,clock Drs. Sands,
De'afield, Barker and Agncw called
at Mr. Conkling's house aud had a
consultation. A few minutes after
Hamilton Fish called, but was not
admitted. Dr. Barker, at the con
clusion of the conference, said ti.at
the patient's condition was very un
promising; that he was suffering from
inflammation of the ear which hat] ex
tended to the membranes of the brain.
The probabilities were that Mr Couk
! ling would not recover, though there
was a possibility that that he might
i get well. His temperature was 103 i
j and his pulse 100. Dr. Barker did
; not think that there would be any
j marked chauge in his patient's condi
tion for twelve hours.
The consultation of physicians be
tween 4 and 5 o'clock resulted in the
decision to immediately cut through
the temporal bone to ascertain wheth
er there was pas lodge on the brain.
Dr. Sands was tho operating surgeon,
and it was aunounced as very suc
cessful, a secretion of matter having
been found.
Drs. Fordjce Barker and Sands call
ed at 9:20 and found the patieut. rcst
iut? quiotly and his condition materi
ally improved. Since the operation
his temperature hud fallen to 102 and
his pulse to 92. The operation was
performed by making an incision in
the temporal bone. About an ounce
of pu.l flowed out. The patient was
under the influence of ether, aarl he
relied and tossed so :h'it it was only
with dTiicuLy that the operation
was performed. I>r. Barker said
that while the recovery of the patient
is not assured ho stands a mueh bet
ter chance than before. The opera
tion was very successful, and no dan
ger is apprehended for at least twe;ve
'jours After the-operation Mr. Conk
ling arose, walked iuto an adjoiuing
room and returned. Besides the phys
icians Mrs Conkling aud married
daughter were with the pattern con
stantly. Mr. Conkling has not been
able to recognize anyone but bis wife
during the day, aud he will probably
remain unconscious all night because
of toe anastbetic which was adminis
tered. Drs. Batker and Sands left
the sick-chamber at 9:45 and wili not
return until 9 A. M. tomorrow.
The surgica' operation performed is o.
vary delicate one. It consists ia the
anting out and removal of a part of
th« squamous portion of the tempo
ral bone, the incision being miide up
on the prominence which may '>3 felt
just behind the ear. Beneath liiis
lies the mechanism of the ear, and
in cases in which this mech
anism becomes involved involved
in serious suppuration, as in this in
stance, it becomes necessary to make
an opening through which tho pas
mnv be drawn off. Otherwise the
inflammntion will extend to the tissue
el the brain. Deafness of the ear op
erated on results. The saw or drill
with which the circular piece of spon
gy bono is excised is like a jagged
fcdso on tne oa;i of a piece of small
steel tubirg. it is fixed for the first
few turus by a prop* in the center
The whole instrument is called a tre
phine. When the region of the inner
eur has been reached the circular disk
of bone is carefully extracted aud the
membrane beneath the bone cut
through. A drainage tube is then to
be inserted, through which the mat
ter forming in the abscess eau fl >w
freely into antiseptic absorbent cottuii
at the outer end of the tube This
affords the best chance of confining
the inflammation to its narrowest lim
At 12 midnight Mr Conklir.g was
w '.living up and down his room in a
half delirious condition. He sen; tor
Kdward S. Stokes, and when he ar
rived Mr. Conkling suid to him: "Ed,
it is no use I am gone, i have
fought against this for some time. 1
can't stand it any longer."
Mr. Stokes in go::ig oat saw Dr.
Sands at the door. He asked the Doc
i tor ii Mr Conkling bad uny chance.
Dr. Sands: "He may live forty-eight
hours, but I doubt it."
At 12:1 s Mr. Coupling's condition
was unchanged. He iusi.-ts on rising
and walking about the room, but
! does so in a deiitiuua, as has not re
gained consciousness.
At 1:30 A. M. there was little dilfer
ence in tiie condition of Mr. Conkling
from his midnight. He v\r.:s then sit
| ting up aud was slightly delirious.

From the foregoinir it will no doubt
he seen how any discuswon came
about. The chief clei kin the State

These gifts are not only beautiful,
useful and valuable, but they carry

I will not dwell on this point,

; some have progressed more rapidly
j than others, but this is largely owing

I have spared no paius or money in securing for the farmers of Butler
and surrounding counties a very high grade of Seed corn,
And whieh in the npar future will be the Pride of Butler County. I want,
every fnrmer in the county to give this corn a test und I will furnish the
corn free of charge to any one who may call for it. Don't hesitate about
coming for it; it matters not it you are a customer of mine or not, you are
welcome just the same.
Is a 1(5 rowed yellow dent ear, oto 11 inches iil -• nth and IV in
(lit. meter, kernels closely set, above medium aiz.;. It is a dark orange color,
shading t-lichtlv to the tips, cub extra small and red. In a test in a climate ;
similar to this 70 pounds of ears, not selected, !>ut imperfectly dried, prodirr- ,
cd pounds of shelled com, and only 9;} pounds of cobs instead of 14 lbs
as ic the usual proportion.
Stocks ruf i from 7 to 8 feet and quite often bears two ears.
It originated iu a climate similar to tfcit- and the yield has often been
iarge when other corn was a failure. It makes a high, lino grade ol 'neal :
for famil v use and is spoken of in the highest terms by iirst class mii.ers
The animals' teeth are uut wore aud ground down while u.ing this corn.
iTry it Free of Charge.j
A premium often dollars wili be paid by me to the farmer raising the best j
corn from the "Pride of the West." Come and get
some seed aud try and win the ten dollars.
