The Holiday Season.
Somk seventy rears ago while travelling
in the northern part of England, TV ashing
ton Irving, than whom the world has pro
duced no prettier writer in prose, spent a
Christmas day at the mansion of an Eng
lish Squire or landlord, the guest of one of
the members of the family. He afterwards
incorporated a description of the mansion
and grounds.of the evening he spent there,

tiro sketches "Christmas at Bracebridgc
Hall"' and the "Christmas Pinner.''
Nothinc of the kind, excepting in the
»au-ions of the few very rich, occurs in
this country; hut the same Christmas spir
it prevails all over the civilized or Chris
tian "World.
This holiday commemorate* the an
nonneemcnt of the religion of peace and
lore. It comes in midwinter when onr
thoughts arc more concentrated and onr
•ympatbics more aronsed; when heart is
drawn to heart and we feel more closely
our dependence upon one another.
It is the season of regenerated feeling,
•f kindly charity, of social gatherings and
of heartfelt associations. Therefore let us

End or the Cronin Case.
The case of the Commonwealth of Illi
nois against the five men accused of the
■order of Dr. Cronin, went to the jury at
Chicago, last Friday; and they did not
agree till Monday afternoon, when they
ntnrned a verdict tinding Coughlin, 0 Sul
livan and Burke guilty as indicted and
gave them life sentences; Kunze was found
guilty of manslaughter, and given three
fears in the penitentiary; and Beggs was
Juror John Culver s obstinate opposition
to the infliction of the death penalty saved
the lives of the first three. Thus ends a
famous case.
Dr. Cronin was lured to the suburbs of
Chicago, and murdered in a cottage, on
the 4th. of May last; his body was found in
a newer two week* after; suspicion rested
on a secret society there, whose secrets
Dr. Cronin was known to possess; a score
•f arrests were made and these five men
were held: nearly two months were taken
np in securing a jury; the crime was fas
tened upon the men with the exception
of Attorney Beggs. who had issued some
mysterious orders and who was seen in
CSullivan's company; Burke is the man
who is believed to have done the killing,
he fled the country and was captured at
"Winnipeg. The defence was general, and
an attempt to prove alibis, failed.

First Work, First.
The voters of Pennsylvania with those of
three other States, during the past year,
have stood up, been counted and found
lacking on the temperance question by
many thousand voters.
Men in majorities are not yet convinced
that alcohol is an outlaw that should be
outlawed. A great work of popular educa
tion on that point remains yet to bo done,
It may be hard to believe, but it is never
theless true, that there is no short road to
the prohibition of the sale ol alcoholic
Suors under a government of the people,
ey. the people, must first be taught that
these liquors as beverages are bad before
they will prohibit their traffic.
A thorough enforcement of the temper
ance education laws of Pennsylvania and
these other States in their public schools
will slowly, perhaps, but surely and per
manently change public sentiment on the
The sooner we temperance workers
realize that this first work must be done
first, and therefore address ourselves to
••curing the most thorough and intelligent
temperance education of every child in all
onr public schools that the law demands,
the sooner will our States and Nation be
rid of the inenbus of the saloon.

music teacher say that he made the trans
position of the scale as plain as it could be

Saturday morning, between 8 and 9
o'clock, during a thunder shower,the house
of Mrs. Isaac Kelly in town, was struck by
lightning. The current of electricity
struck a lightning rod on the centre of the
roof, and the rod not being isolated from
til;; roof on account of being broken, the
bolt passed arouml tho tin villeys and gut
ters, thence down the conductors at the
corners; anil, there being no communica
tion with the ground, tho electricity went
to house and ran around and splintered and
tore off the weather-boarding. The tin
conductors were also knocked down. A
hole was torn out of oue corner of the
house, the plastering somewhat destroyed,
glass broken, and the house given a
shaking up in general. Miss Mary Magee,
daughter of Prof. Magee, and who is 4 or .">
years old, was sitting on the (U>or just
where the hole was torn out, and strange
to say was not shocked in the least. Not
being satisfied with tiiu mischief already
done, the current ran into the telephone,
in the barroom of the Murtincourt ilousc,
and burnt till' the wires and nearly scared
Frank Haun to death, as he was sitting
close by the phono. He says he don't
desire a repetition of tho dose. Leaving
this,the current ran along the wire towards
liatler, anil followed it to the residence <;f
Jesse Datter, where the wire, being down,
ran it off into tho ground. A man, who
saw it. says it looked like a tubl'ul of tire
spilled on the ground. The shock caused
by the thunder was very heavy and solid,
and scared the people somewhat.

attire is put oil the cars in your town be
cause she can't pay her fare any farther:
if she almost immediately recievcs a tele

next train because her husband is dying,
and if she tearfully and desperately, in a
pretty loud voice, announces that she is
going to walk home 100 miles, you let her
walk. Sho and her confederate, who send
the telegram, have worked the dying hus

The late Pr. William Gibson, of James
town, Mercer county, was a very pious
man and was esteemed as one of the excel
lent of the earth. The Lord prospered
him in his goings, and before his death the
Doctor was enabled to erect a monument
in the cemetery that weighed several hun
dred tons and cos* over $50,000. It now
begins to appear that while (retting every
thing in decorous order for his linal de
parture. the devoted man overlooked one
matter. lie neglected to settle with his
hired household help. This little flaw was
probably permitted in order that his fel
low-men might not esteem him as perfect

Kane, got a judgment in the Mercer Court
for $1,500 against the Doctor ~ estate for
services as housekeeper. And last week,

a verdict for over s£,ooo against the estate

About a month ago diphtheria appeared
in the home of a prominent family. A
young domestic was terribly frightened,
and decided to go 'to her home in the
county, but the attending iau
would not permit this, not from fear of
spreading disease, but to render assistance
to the family. A young child died of the
dread diseas c. and this with the horror of
the disease, caused the girl to take to her
bed, and she apparently died within a few
hours, and was at once buried by the au
thorities. A few days ago her parents ob
tained pcrmi--ii>u to remove the body to
the country, and upon opening the ca.- ket
they were horrified to discover that the
body was lying on its face, the hair
wrenched from the head aiui the flesh lit

evening. Dec. 12, 1889. Mr. Samuel Mc
< lymonds. in the 66th year of his age.
Mr. MeClymonds had been in feeble
health for some time and while his death
was not. therefore, unexpected, yet it is
greatly regretted. He was respected by
all and was always recognized as an honest
and worthy . iti/en. lie was raised near
I'ortersville, Muddycreek Tp.. this county.
While vet a young man he came to Butler
(about 1830) and was connected for a time
with the late William S. Boyd in the mer
cantile business. Soon after this he return
ed to I'ortersville and was engaged there
in store keeping up to the close of the late
war. Having a large stock of goods on
hand they became depreciated in value by
the sudden close of the war, a common re
sult then, and this was as unfortunate for
him as for many others then engaged in
similar business. In 1872 he purchased a
lot in Bntler and shortly afterwards re
moved here, building and residing in the
HOUSE in which he died. In 1878 and in
18*1 Mr. MeClymonds was a candidate at
THE Republican primaries for the office of
protlnmotnry, but was unsuccessful each
. ABOUT the -ame time (1878) he was
appointed Clerk to the County Commis
sioners. an office he continued to hold for
s. vera! years, with credit to himself and to
the benefit of the county. After leaving
that office his health was such as to pre
clude him from engaging in any active
business In all the reverses of fortune
that may have attended him his good
character for integrity WA* never called iu
question. On Sunday last his remains
were deposited in the U. P. Church portion
of the South Cemetery, a church of which
all his life he had been a member, and
WERE followed to the grave by a large niiui
ber of relatives, friends and citizens. The
funeral services at the house were conduct
ed by Rev. MeKee of the L T . I'. Church, of
this "place, whoso discourse on the occasion
was appropriate and instructive.
