It happened tbat Mrs. Morrison was suf

she and her husband were awake during

to the front door and did the same there;

I a addition to oar first-class roller
wheat flour mill, which we bnilt last

improved machinery for making

machinery can not be excelled. We
will be able to make yon as good a
quality of buckwheat flour and as
good a yield as can be made in the
country. We hare a complete mill,
which will prove itself?
First, a first-class wheat roller flour
mill, which makes as good a quality
of flour as is shipped from the West
Second, the beat buckwheat flour
mill in the State.
Third, a rye flour mill that makes
as good flour as is in the market.
Fourth, corn meal and chopping
mills tbat do complete work.
We also manufacture Graham flour
of tbe beat quality. Therefore we
say without fear of contradiction tbat
we have tbe best mill for accom
modating the farmer and public in

day was altogether too popular. The

tbe crowds at the stations were so large
that they stopped tbe sale of tickets at 8
o'clock, and refunded the money of those
they could induce to stay at home; but

so crowded as to be uncomfortable, and so
heavy as to cause delays, facts that the
managers of the excursion deeply regret.
The Fourteenth Annual Exhibition of
the Butler Co. Agricultural Association
will be held ou their grounds at Butler, on
Sept. 8, 9, 10, aud 11, 1891. Many new
features have been added to the Premium
List, this year, the most important of
which is that the premiums offered are
largely increased and are now fully double
the amount offered by the surrounding as
sociations, for horses and cattle: aud be
sides this a premium is offered for the best
herd of cattle, of cattle, of either Short
horn, Holstein or Jerseys, so that all class
es of stock raisers will have an opportunity
to show their stock and compete for a good
premium. Special offers in the fruit and
vegetable departments ought to induce
strong competion, while the poultry fan
cier will also be rewarded with a handsome
premium if he examines the list iu tbat de
partment and conies up to the require
ments. Altogether the list is so re arrang
ed as to be interesting to all classes. As
the Butler Fair is one of the largest held
in the state let nur people interest them
selves in keeping up its good record by
bringing articles of merit for exhibition.
The management are busy putting every
thing in shape on tbe grounds—and have
already built a large block of stalls aud
will have the grounds as neat and trim as
time and money will make them.

'•The Water Tests."
For fully two hours of last Tuesday night
the Council of Butler, with the aid of Mr.
Porter, of the firm of Smith. Porter it Co..
fire-brick manufacturers of New Cumber
land. W. Va., talked about brick—fire
brick—the quality of the clay, manner of
burning, vitrification, experience of dif
ferent places with different makes, the
different tests and particularly the efficacy
of the water test.
Engineer McQuistion slated that he had
tested several of the brick that Long A
Doyle are putting down on E. Jefferson St.
and that one brick absorbed 11 ounces of
water in 18 minutes, another was full of
water in a few minutes, another had ab
sorbed 8 ounces in lj hours, another 4 or
in same time, all had averaged 4 ounces in
hours, and some showed water to the
the centre; also that it was the experience
of the Engineer's Association, and so pub
lished, that fire brick that would absorb
water would, when laid on the street, be
split by the frost aud would crumble.
He cited several cases of brick being
tested and condemned by the water test,
and among them that of Omaha which con
demned brick that absorbed 3-10 of an oz.
in 3fi hours, and stated that he had ordered
Long 4 Doyle to discontinue the laying ot
Mr. Porter denied the efficacy or fairness
of the water test, said they were shipping
brick all over the country and had received
no complaints, that their brick were made
of pure fire clay and were properly bnrned;
that they are shipping the same brick to
Philadelphia. Wheeling and other points
that thej- are shipping here: thoueh he ac
knowledged that the brick on Stockton ave.
Allegheny, which crumbled, were from
their kilns, and gave certain reasons for
Messrs Long A Doyle thought that this
water test should have been sprung on
them when the first car load came in: but
Mr. Forquer said that the first car load of
these brick shipped here were good ones
and had been tested: also that we were
now receiving tbo refuse of the kilns, and
that life was tjo short to trifle with this
matter, and that the committee had taken
it for granted that things were going right
until they found they were mistaken.
Mr. McJunkin suggested a compromise
i.e. culling the brick on hands, aud insist
ing on better ones to complete that street
and the other streets.
The contract makes tbe Engineer and
Street Paving Committee tbe absolute
judges of the quality of tbe materials that
go into the streets, and the matter was re
ferred to them and next morning they and
the contractors and Mr. l'orter went over
the street and examined the brick, and the
contractors and Mr. Porter entered into a
bond to the borough in $5,000, security lor
any damage doneto the street by water and
frost for six years.
It was stated that tbe Main street as
sessment would not be ready till the next
A slight change is to be made in the
grade of West Jefferson St. at crossing of
Washington, and perhaps also in front of
Mr. Forsythe's property.
The Sec'y was ordered to notify the peo
ple on the alley back of Duffy's store to
abate certain nuisances.
The grading of Wayne St. aud of Mc-
Kean from Jefferson to Cunningham was
let to Jno. 11. McKean at 25 cents a square
yd; and McKean from Diamond St. to
Wayne to J. B. Mathers at 30 cents, they
to haul tbe dirt to the bridge fill, and to
give bond and go ahead immediately or
else contracts go to next best bidders.
Mr. Hughes was voted $2,400 on his con
tract for S. S. sewer; and Jos. Bredin.Esq.
notified council of suit for damages for
other big sewer passing through his prop
erty. The Sewer Com. was instructed to
settle with Messrs. Fullerton and Dauben
speck, or else file bonds.
The grade of S. Main St. next to tbe
bridge, was referred to the Street Paving
Com. with power to act. The fuss there
seemed to be the result of a misunder

On incident occurred at Pittsburg, Fri
day, that is worthy of note. An Ohio
conple applied to Register Connor for a
marriage license, and were refused, be
cause the woman who had been divorced
from her former husband, did not and
could not show her papers, and the reason
she could not show them was that, though
the Court had granted her a decree, she
had never paid the costs, and secured a
copy of it. She plead with the Register,
and "wet her pretty lashes with copious
tears," as the Pittsburg paper states, but
was advised to go ou to New Jersey.
Quite a number of divorces have been
granted to parties in this caunty who will,
or onght to. tind themselves in the same
predicament some day. They have an
attorney draw up and present their
petition, the necessary publication made,
and the proper entries made on the
dockets; and then snap their fingers at
every body who has done anything (or
