A Jail Delivery.
Somebody passing the jail early la«t
Friday morning saw a string of blanket
hanging from the roof of the jail to the
silewalk, and went into the Sheriffs house
and informed the family of the fact, anil
they, upon investigation, found that three
prisoners—Frank Keiber, Charles Elmer
and K. Groves—had escaped during the
Men and telegrams were immediately
sent out in all directions, and the County
Commissioners offered a reward of S2OO for
Reiber, but np to the time of our going to
press nothing has been heard of the three
It required considerable ingenuity a
well a.s physical force for them to make an
The jail-room and cells are lined with
iron, and the window, sky-light and doors
covered by iron bars, but in the iron wall,
just above the second-story ceil of the
female department on the south ride, there
is an iron door about two feet wide by
three feet long, for the purpose of affording
access to the roof when in need of repairs.
This door is of quarter-inch wronght-iron,
lined with half-in"h iron, and is well bolt
ed and secured.
There are no female prisoners in the jail
at present, and the men have been allowed
the use of that part.and they made a study
of that door. They managed to loosen the
pin of the lower of the three hinges, then
they sharpened an old and hard chair-rung
and found that it would do for an opening
wedge; then they removed or quietly got
ready for removal a piece of the oak floor
ing of the jail-rooin C feet 4 inches long
and 2 inches thick; and they hid enough
blankets in one of the cells of the female
department, which are very dark, to make
a rope.
Everything was ready Thursday night,
the three men hid in the dark cell of the
female department with their ptuff, and
when all was quiet they went to work.
Clinging to the iron bars of the cell they
made a beginning with the chair-rung, and
then used the piece of oak flooring to bend
out the lower part of the door, and they
■worked so quietly that they gave no alarm
whatever, though one of the Sheriffs
family was up nearly all night with an
aching tooth.
When the hole was big enough they
went through it. taking their blankets with
them, then they cut a hole through the
wood and tin roof with their pen-knives,
made a rope of their blankets, slid down
and were off.
Bad Wreck on the P. R. R.
For the first time in its history the block
system of managing trains on the Pennsyl
vania K. K. failed to protect a train follow
ed by another, earl}' last Friday morning,
and that was due to a dense fog.
The accident happened in the G'oueuiaugh
valley, near the station of New Florence,
about 65 miles east of Pittsburg. One
passenger train coming "»Vest and which
had been delayed at Johnstown by a
freight wreck, stopped at a water tank for
water; the train following should have
been stopped ut New Florence by a red light
at the block house, but was not, either on
account of a mistake made by the operator
or by the fog confusing the engineer, and
the train rushed on and crashed into the
one standing at the Water Tank. The
engine of the second train cut clear through
the last car. a sleeper, of the first train,
which contained twenty persons, two of
whom were killed outright, and all the
others injured.
The sleeper was converted into kindling
wood, and the survivors tell remarkable
stories of their escapes. Four newly
wedded people were ou the car, three of
whom were seriously injured.
A Strange Death.
J. T. McConnell, a tool dresser, formerly
of near Ilarrisville.but who has lately been
employed on the I'. W. i K. It. was dis
covered struggling in the creek just above
the "Freeport" bridge, late last Thursday
evening. His cries for help were answered
and he was helped out of the mud and
water, but he was chilled through and
bruised aud expired shortly after. He
had been drinking and it is probable that
he fell over the embankment, as one of his
shoulders was dislocated.

The Sabbath Question.
Rev. Wilbur F. Crafts, of New York
city, author of "The Sabbath for Man,"
and founder of the American Sabbath
Union, will speak under the auspices of
the Western Pennsylvania Sabbath Asso
ciatiou on "The Sabbath from a Human
itarian Stand-point," iu the United Pres
bvterian church this (Friday) evening, at
Dr. Crafts has spoken twice on this sub
ject at bearings before the Labor Commit
tee of the I . S. Senate. He has also
spoken before the Central Labor Union and
and the Letter Carriers' Association of New
York, the International Convention of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the
General Assembly of the Knights of Labor,
and of the Southern and Cumberland Pres
byterian churches, and in the chief cities
of forty states and territories.
The movement has been endorsed not
only by the labor organizations and
churches mentioned above, but also by the
other three Presbyterian Assemblies, the
Methodist General Conference (Northern),
by the Northern and Southern Baptist C< n
ventions, the General Synod of the Luth
erans, the Synod of the Reformed (Dutch)
Church. National Council of the Congrega
tional Churches, and the Episcopal Council
of Virginia.
Dr. Crafts has made a thorough study of
this subject in all its bearings. He is a
pleasing, forceful, and eloquent speaker.
His addresses abound in solid argument,
interspersed with apt quotations and happy
stories. Wherever he .has been he has at
tracted large audiences, and produced
serious convictions.
Mrs. Crafts will give a short blackboard
address on "How to make the Sabbath a
delight to the children.
She will also speak to the school chil
dren in the afternoon in the Presbyterian
Curry School of Elocution and
Dramatic Culture.
I take pleasure in recommending
Mary Ayres as a student and teacher
of elocution. Miss Ayres' abilities are
of a very high order and she is thor
oughly competent to give instruction
in the art of Elocution. Her work
will be of great benefit to persons de
siring such instruction. Her pupils
will be allowed to complete the course
of study here with a discount in the
full number of lessons in our course.
1 make this statement as I have
full confidence in her abilities.

An Opening Promised.
Wo have recently had the pleasure of
inspecting the new furniture store of
Messrs. Campbell £ Teuipleton, who, our
readers will remember, have refitted the
old Troutnian building and changed it into
a furniture house on a city style. On
entering, one is confronted with evidences
of the "oak craze" in the rows of oaken
chamber suits and sideboards, which al
most completely fill the ground floor.
There is any amount of chaste and elegant
carving among the more ornate work and
the 16th century style, which is much
affected now, is conspicuous. A chamber
set of three piece?, imported Knglish oak,
attracts much attention anil is certainly
handsome, beside being "so English, you
know." It is valued at something less
than two hundred dollars. A cabinet
shown in the front window, of cherry with
mahogany finish, and well supplied with
bric-a-brac of finest china, is equally ad
mired and is probably as fine a piece of
furniture as is in the county. A half-dozen
oak sideboards with carved tops, and a
general appearance of the freshest and
newest "old oak" you ever saw nest at
tracted our attention. We were afraid to
price them, but heard enough to convince
us that anyone wanting a fine sideboard
need not go a thousand miles from the
place to get it cheap. Genuine English
oak chamber sets come high but we *au do
with out them, but we need sideboards and
we are glad to see them so inexpensive. A
group of fine folding beds passed, we reach
ed the "parlor," which the proprietors
have fitted up to show what is not im
possible. We forgot to price anything,but
it looked to be about four times as long
and seven times as deep as our pocket
book. AVe went to the second floor where
are found the chairs, tables, tetes, sofas,
etc., aud it would be no use for us to try
to tell you anything about it, for you must
see it for yourself. Messrs. Campbell &
Templeton announce in our advertising
columns this week their opening, which
occurs on Friday and Saturday of next
week, and we are sure that they want
everybody to come aud look at things, no
matter whether they expect to buy furni
ture inside the next five years or not.

stress on these features iti all our goods.

manufactured, is what we pride ourselves
on, and in respect of quality and work, our
