—The proprietor of a New York sport
ing paper lately offered a prize of SSOOO for
any one who could beat the best timo ever
made by a man running—one mile in 4
minutes and l'J seconds, and a friend of
policeman Peter Slater of Millerstowu
wrote the paper an account of I'eter of
which the following is an extract. "I'eter
Slater, who is at the head of tho police
force of Millorstown, is now 08 years of
age aud stands 5 feet 11 inches in his
shoes. He has always been something of
an athlete, and when but 22 years of age he
ran a mile in three minutes. Chief Slater
now resides al liaruhart's Mills, Pa., aud
notwithstanding his years is still halo and
hearty. lie clasms to be double-jointed
in the knees and wrists, and writes that
when iu his 23d year ho could hold his
breath 1} minutes by the town clock.
—lt is saiil that fourth-class Postmasters,
many of whom have been merchants, have
been brought up with a round turn by the
Postmaster-General, who has ordered that
hereafter their salary will depend upon the
number of letters actually mailed, and not
upon tin* number of stamps sold. A prac
tice with many of them has been to arrange
with oily merchants to take stamps in pay
ment lor goods, the result of which was u
large increase of sales of stamps ill country
offices and a corresponding falling off iu
the large cities. Now they are compelled
lo count the letters, and their salaries are
made to depend upon llio actual business
of their respective offices, aud not upon the
sale of stamps as formerly. This change
of the rules lias naturally caused a great
amount of disgust, aud is likely to render
the quest for fourth class Post masterships
much less eager than formerly.
Andy Root of Petrolia wont for a
drive behind his new last horso last Friday
evening; on the way he saw Mrs. Kllen
Con tiers, a New Castle woman who has
cooked in several of our hotels, ami asked
her to accompany him. Sbo did so and
they hail a pleasant drive out tho road

thing that ripped the scalp from just above
her eyes to the top of her head. She was
carried into a neighboring house, while
yet unconscious, and physicians were sent
for and they worked for two hours getting
scalp back iu its place and sewing it on.
It w.is thought that uicht thai sbo would
die, but she recuperated, is doing well aud
is now lying at one of our hotels. Afl.or

speed till be reached the centre of tho
town, and the buggy was not broken. Had

The Truth and Nothing but the
T ruth.
Many years ago when we, along with
our fellow citizens, were paying sls*) to
$250 for a buggy, we conceived the idea
that less tdian SIOO ought to buy a buggy
good enough for almost any man. We set
about investigating the matter —went to
the largest manufactories in the l". S. and
made a contract for a full car-load to be
made to our order. We had the cash iu
our pocket, and the result was that the
buggies were made and shipped to ns.
Otu neighbors (we lived in Prospect, this
county, then) said we made a mistake —
that we could not sell them—and we con
fess when we did see them all set up in a
row we felt a little as though we had an
elephant on our hands in a dry summer.
Hnt we had good buggies, bought low for
cash, and of course we could sell low. It
was the first time in the history of liutler
county that a good buggy could be bought
for less than SIOO. In thirty dayr.we were out
of buggies and another carload on the way.
Everybody wanted one of our buggies—
the rich man saw they were good enough
for him to ride in and the poor man for the
first time in his life rejoiced in being able
to own a buggy. Just so it went; our bus
iness grew, neighbor told neighbor; it
spread all over this State and into other
States until we found it impossible to car
ry on our large business without good ship
ping facilities. We selected Butler as the
place last November. We purchased the
old manufacturing establishment formerly
conducted by 0. C. Roessiug <fc Son. on
Cunningham street, where we have located
permanently, and liutler can boast to-day
of having largest wholesale
and retail carriage dealers in the State.
We keep in stock everything in the Car
riage, Wagon, Cart "Harness and Kobe
line. We have top buggies from S4O up to
the very finest hand made work. Carts,
sl2 up: harness, $6 to the very best hand
made harness to be tound anywhere, Ac.
Our success in business we attribute to our
rules first adopted, Never ask exhorbitaut
prices. Sever misrepresent. Thus we have
won the good will and confidence of every
customer. We say with pride that we have
sold hundreds of buggies on time and never
had a man refuse to pay his note on ac
count of the article not being as represent
ed. This is remarkable. 3onsidering our
nine years'business. We have plenty of
money; never sell a note. We discount
every bill, pay no rent; we give our cus
tomers the benefit of all this, and are close
cash purchasers. Our large experience
gives us a knowledge of the business that
can be acquired in no other way. Come
down and see us whether you want to buy
or not; it is only a little walk down from
Main street and it will pay you well. The
members of the company are S. B. Martin
court and J. M. Leighner.
