The Blind Man's Poetry.
The Pennsylvania Reserves
Ringed Butler here and there,
And old time jokes, as memory serves,
Rang laughter in the air.
A Peddler I stopping with Wick,
Some soldiers stopped there too;
My purse was light, my leader sick,
My sales, all told, were few.
I was told, a blind man sat
By Campbell's Hotel duor,
Aud" soon I listened to his chat
Aud introduced some more.
And the blind man, Alex, said, 1 got
Twelve thousand dollars back pay—cash;
I paid the village back—a lot,
Aud swore ofi drinking trash.
It's $72 a month; I get
The private's rated height.
It never seamed too much, aj yet,
To balanca wan', ot sigh:.
It took three aad twenty years
For Uncle Sara to give;
Why don't ivj smother doubts and fears
And help each wreck to live ?
He falked to an aged man, with sight,
Who fought iu both late wars,
Who lost much vigor in fight,
And the march of years, three score.
The old man said, in accents low,
That quarter now I'll take,
'Tis near the tiiu j that I should g )
And new couditious take.
But Alex, in a quiet way
Presented four iu one,
As "welcome as the flowers of May,"
Or mountaiu waters run.
Since then I have tramped with a friend
And lectured by the way,
But people did not attend —
Lecturing did not pay.
I came to the end of my string,
Not knowing what to do;
But I met good Alex, my friend
With mouey that put me through.
In a quiet sort of a way,
For duty, not tor fun,
As "welcome as the flowers of May,"
Or light of mid-day sun.
And now I'll close my story;
The cheerful giver is blest—
Let us give to God the glory,
And to Uncle Sam a rest.
The above is a blind man's eulogy on a
blind man—composed by J. L. Lee iu honor
ot Alex GiLihrist of In liana, both of whom
are blind. Mr. Lee is now in Butler and vi
cinity selling his celebrated Magnetic Oil,
the great pain cure.
At the National Prohibition Con
veDtion in ludianapolis, last Thurs
day, Clinton B. Fiske, of New Jersey,
was nominated for President, and
John A. Brooks, of Missouri, for Vice
President, The feature of the day
was the triumph of the woman's suf
frage element, of the Convention, and
the adoption of a plank in the plat
form to that effect. The other
"planks" refer to the manufacture of
liquor, license, internal revenue,
polygamy, trusts, immigration, civil
service and public revenue. See

—lt is said that the Pennsylvania
Railroad Co. is negotiating for the
purchase of the Chicago, Burlington
and Quincy road, and the two together
the Union Pacific road. The ostensi
ble object of these purchases is to
transcontinentalize the Pennsylvania
system. As conservative a paper as
the New York Times assumes the
paternity of this scheme, and at pome
length gives reasons for its accom
plishment, together with an explana
tion of its feasibility.

—A dispatch to the Chicago Tri
bune says the Excelsior geyser in the
Yellowstone Park is in operation.
This geyser is in the great middle
geyser basin, close to Fire Hole
River. It is in the form of an im
mense pit 320 feet in length and 200
feet wide, and the aperture through
which it discharges its volume of
water is nearly 200 feet in diameter.
Its general appearance is that of a
huge boiling spring, and for many
years its true character was not sus
pected. Its first eruption occurred
in 1880, when it revealed itself as a
stupendous geyser. The power of
its eruptions was almost incredible,
sending an immense column of water
to heig-bts of from 100 to 300 feet,
and barling with it rocks and bowl
ders of from 1 to 100 pounds in
weight. Its present eruption is said
to be a repetition of that of 1880. It
is throwing its volumes of water 300
feet into the air, and Fire Hole River
is reported to have risen two feet
from its rushing floods. This is noto
conceded to be the most powerful
geyser in existence.
Gov. Hill, of New York has signed
the bill substituting electricity for the
gallows. The new law will apply to
murders committed after Jan. 1, 1889.
It embodies the most radical reform
of the century in the mode of inflict
ing the death penalty. New York
has taken the lead which is likely to
be followed by other States.
—From reports submitted to the
General Conference it appears that
there are 20,755 M. E. churches in

parsonages, worth $1,008,047, 136
colleges, universities and seminaries,
with endowments amounting to $20,-
489,307, making the enormous total
of $113,200,146 of financial wealth in
possession of the church. The officers
in the various congregations handed
out last year $16,168,225, it being an
average of $8 per member, without
a dollar of expense or loss. When
the first census was taken in 1700
there were 57,004 Methodists in the
United States. Now there are 6,-
000,000. While the population of
the country since that date has gain
ed 1,177 per cent; the Methodist
Church has gained 5,413 per cent.
—The Co., Commissioners were
somewhat indignant oyer part of the
Pres-ent.ncnt of the last Grand Jury.
The bhsement of the buildiug was
in good coudition last Wednesday
morning, but before the Jury visited
it, towards noon of that day, some
"bogs" had made a fearful muss
there, and the Commissioners are
thiaking of excluding the public from
that part of the building.

The Franklin News narrates a
rather singular inetance of the need
lesß suffering a child underwent, be
cause its parents did not sooner have
medical examination. It says: This
morning a man and his wife, whose
names we did not ascertain came in
from the country, bringing with them
a little three year old boy who had
been suffering terribly from some
trouble in the nose siuce last- fall.
They took the child to Dr. Leaden
ham, who discovered the cause of the
trouble to be a small acorn which the
child had put in bis nose. The acorn
had worked its way up the nasal pass
age nearly to the eye Dr. L. sue- i
ceeded in grappling it with his in- !
struments and was not long in get- i

The Waynesboro Record says that
a few evenings ago a rat attacked a
child of Mr. Luther Neal, in that
place, under rather peculiar circum

her in'ant, five weeks old, in the sum

care of her husband, till she could go
to a neighbors on an errand, but he,
man like, left the plaie to do some

The Democratic Convention.
The Democratic National Conven
tion met in Exposition Hall iu St.
Louis, Tuesday noon, and thongh
there was a tremendous crowd pre
sent, it was generally considered to
be the quietest and stupidest National
Convention that has ever met in this
The nominations of Cleveland for
President, and that of Thurman for
Vice President were geueraily con
ceded, and the only fight ia the Con
vention promised to be that in the
tariff plank of the platform. Watter
son of Keutucky led the extreme tar
iff reformers, and Gorman of Mary
land, a moderate tariff man led the
other crowd. Watterson's crowd
seemed to be in the majority, but it
was thought that Scott of Pennsyl
vania would bricg about a com
Next day, Cleveland was put in
nomination by Dan Dougherty and
he was nominated unanimously amid
the wildest excitement. The plat
form committee was not yet ready to
report, and the nomination for Vice
President was left over till Dext day,
and the Convention adjourned after a
two hours session.
The Committee on the Platform
had been in session for thirty-six
hours. The fight was over the Mills
Bill and it is said to have been voted
down, and the tariff plank of 1834 and
Cleveland's last annual message
adopted in its stead.
The Oil Shut Down.
The Executive Board of the Oil
Producers' Protective Association has
just prepared a comparative stutement
of the effect of the compulsory shut
down during the first six months that
it has been in force, with November,
and December, 1887, and January,
February, March c.nd April of 1888.
As compared with the same months
of 1880 87 there was a decrease in the
amount produced of 4,321,925 barrels;
decrease in daily average, 23,747 bar
rels; increase in shipments, 239,8.37
barrels; decrease in stock in six
months, 5,871.550. There was also
a decrease in certificates of 3,830,748
barrels; decrease in wells completed,
589; decrease in new production, 23,-
404 barrels; average size of wells
completed in the last six months 18 50
barrels daily; average size of wells
completed in the previous six mon'hs,
35.00 barrels daily; per cent, dry last
six months, 35i; per ceut. dry prev
ious six months, 23i.
The limitation of production is by
contract to November 1, 1888. The
report continues: "The production
cannot possibly average over 44,000
barrels per day till then; if the ship
ments are the same as last year during
this time, stocks will bo reduced to
18,274,260 barrels in all lines; Na
tional Transit certificates to about
12,000,000 barrels; should the limita
tion be continued six months longer,
i. e., to May 1, 1889, and if shipments
are the same as last year, stocks will
be 12,423,591, and certificates only
about 8,000,000. Many producers
wish the shut down continued till
that time. The indications, however,
are that enforced shut down will not
be required; that with all the wells
thrown open there will be little in
crease, as the books of the Producers'
Protective Association show that
many who shut down are now pump
ing to their full capacity, yet cannot
produce their limit." It is thought
that that stocks on the first day of
next May will not exceed 12,000,000
and certificates 8,000,000 barrels
Excursion to Delano.
The Pittsburg Dispatch of Monday
gave the following account of the ex
cursion to Delano.
The sixth annual excursion of the
German Lutherans of Pittsburg and
vicinity to the Concordia Orphans'
Home, at Delano, Butler county, took
place yesterday, aud a large crowd of
people from Pittsburg, Allegheny,
Sharpsburg aud Montrose went out
to visit the institution and spend a
day in the quiet country groves. Two
trains of 15 cars each, and two loco
motives to each train, were required
to transport the crowd, which num
bered.nearly 1,800, and would doubt
less have exceeded 2,000 had not
the weather been so unsettled.
The first train left Federal street
station, Allegheny, over the West
Penn Railroad, at 8 o'clock a. m , and
all of the 15 cars were crowded. The
second train, following a half hour
later, with the same number of cars,
wns comfortably filled. It stopped at
Bennett, Sharpsburg and Montrose,
and at each of these places large ad
ditions were made to the party.
A trip by rail up the beautilul Al
legheny is always pleasant, but es
pecially iu the spring, or early sum
mer. and the excursionists enjoyed it
greatly. Apparently they wero un
able to take in enough ol the beauti
ful scenery—broad flowing river, lofty
bills, green fields and luxuriant forest
foliage. All arrived safely at Delano
shortly after 10 o'clock and the crowd
which included all ages and both
sexes, families of father, mother, and
numerous children, bevies of young
ladies without escorts, young men
accompanied by their best girls and
boys who thought themselves younir
men, with one impulse sought the
pleasant grounds of the Homo, looked
through the buildiugs which were
open for inspection, and than went
through the fine orchard to where
the exercises of the day were held.
The program included singing and
prayers and two sermons, all in the
German language, so that ouly those
who understand that tongue could get
much good from it, excepting the
melody of the singing, which all could
appreciate. The morning sermon
was preached by Rev. I*. Brandt,
pastor of the South Eighteenth Street
German Lutheran Church, Pittsburg,
and was listened to with marked at
tention. He occupied the time from
12 to 1 o'clock, after which there was
an intermission of one hour and a
half for dinner. At 2-30 p. m. Rev.
F. Ahner, pastor of the Hiffh Street
German Lutheran Church, Pittsburg,
preached, and the choir rendered some
excellent music. The exercises of the
day closed at 4 o'clock, and the crowd
spent an hour in quiet strolls about
the grounds of ihe Home, and slowly
made their way to the waiting trains,
which left for the return trip to the
city at a few minutes after 5.

S. WIULE, Salesman.
A saloonkeeper is no better than
his bartender. At least that is what
the Supreme Court says. The boss
may walk around Jand put on style,
or spend his time in Europe for that
matter, but his personality is merged
in that of his bartender still. Adam
Zeigler, of Huntingdon, tried to work
the pious racket when his house was
pulled for selling liquor to persons of
known intemperate habits. His de
fense was that the sales were made by
an employe, but he was promptly con
victed. Zeigler wasn't satisfied with
this, but took the case to the Supreme
Court, which Las just affirmed the de
cision of the lower court holding that
as there are no accessories in misde
meanors—al! persons concerned being
guilty as principals—Zeigler was just
as much to blame as the young man
who dished up the stuff.

isn't one worthy quality that
we haven't. Serges, Seer

are worth having.

as the goodness of our Thin
Clothing gets found out.
