No Fire Alarm.
At the meeting of Council. Tuesday
night. Mr. Schenck of the Fire Alarm
Committee reported that the town was too
short of money at present to put in the
system, also that the firemen say the}
need hose more than the fire alarm sys
Mr. Black said there was "absolutely no
money." Mr. Forquer corroborated them,
and the report of the committee was adopt
ed, which means no firo alarm system at
present for Butler, and which blasted the
hopes of Mr. Meyers of Sharpsburg. who
was an interested spectator. Mr. Meyers
thanked the Council for the interest they
had taken in the Gamewell system; thought
that the firemen should have a 1000 feet of
hose for each Co., and a tower to dry the
wet hose.
Mr Stamm ot the Sullivan-run Dam
Committee recommended the destruction of
the dam and the building of another above
the Mifflin St. bridge: from which the
sewer could be flushed by a pipe. Mr.
Schenck thought that would not better
the matter, as the 24-inch iron pipe lay on
the bed ot the run and itself makes the
dam; he favored turning the run into its
old channel. Mr. Forquer thought that
this trouble was "hatched up and imagin
ary" and that some parties saw a specula
tion in it. Mr. Stamm referred to the
flooded cellars, and tho Council agreed to
visit the seat of war in a body next morn
Burgess Kennedy reported that his busi
ness was so smallduringthe pastmonth that
he would not make a report, bat that in
view of the coming election he would

Mr. Alexander complained that the
street lights were turned out too soon and
the matter will be looked after; Mrs Wick's
board walk on West street was reported
to be in bad condition; the Forsythe mat
ter was referred to the paiving Committee;

The Ladies Home Journal.
A most unique magazine is the February
Ladies' Home Journal, entirely made up,
as it is, in prot-e, verse and fiction by
daughters of lamous parantage, some of
the "daughters" being lamed themselves.
Thirty '•daughters" are represented, each
by au article, story or poem, and a more
carious and suceesslul innovation in maga
zine literature has uot been made for years.
The issue is in every respect a surprise,
and is a powerful argument in beiiall of
hereditary geniens. Hawthorn's daughter,
Air.-.. Lathrop, for example, has an excel
lent story; Mildred Howels' the novelist's
daughter, writes a very sweet poem; tbe
daughters of Charles Dickens, Thackeray,
. iid Horace Greeley all write of tbeir fam
ous fathers; President Harrison's daughter,
Mrs McK>-e, surprises by writing a very
strong article on "The training ol Children;"
Gladstone's daughter tells "How a Wo
man's College Begau" of which she is Vice-
Principal; General Sherman's daughter tells
a clever war story; Julia Ward Howe pre
sents throe literary daughters; ex-Senator
Ingalls' clever daughter Kthcl sketches
Mrs. Lelaud Sanlord; Jefferson Davis' fav
orite daughter, Winnie, portrays ' The
American Girl who Studies Abroad," from
her own experience; auu these are follow
ed up by tbe daughters of Sir Morrel
Mackrnzie, "Mrs. Alexander" and Kichard
lleury Dana; Miss Hrodly, writes of tho
'•yueens oi Westminister Abbey,"ofwhich
her lather is Dean, And as a fitting com
plement to the fure-part ol the issjio Julia
War J llowe, Mrs. iienry Ward Beeber,
Mrs. Admiral Dahlgren, Mrs. A. D. T.
Whitney und other famous mothers tell
"How to Train a Daughter." This is. in
deed, a curious number, and tho most novel
ever issued by a magazine. None of the
Journal'M departments are omitted, the
"famous daughters" occupying tbe fore
part of the magazine, while Dr. Talmagc,
••Dob" Burdelte, Margaret Hottouie aud
all the other Journal editors form tbe rear
guard. Sucb au issue is worth five times
itx modest price of ten cents. Published,

For a long time he lived iu a hut made of
liark, fashioned like an Indian tepee. He
wandered over the mountains with a dog
and gun, and seemed to enjoy his solitary
existauoe. When found, it was evident
that he had been doad several days, per
haps weeks, and the gaunt and emaciated
form of his faithful dog was by his side,
almost dead from starvation. Aud he
would no doubt have remained tboru and
died by the side of his dead master, and
never dreamed of deserting his post. Dogs
sometimes do things that make us ashamed
of our humanity. The body was taken to
Clearfield aud buried on Monday. It is
presumed that the man died of pneumonia,
or some kiudred disease, as ho had pul
monary trouble.
What We Have Got.
We don't profess to have the largest
bakery in the world, although we
have the biggeHt and best equipped
in the state, but we do claim to turn
out the freshest, purest, best crackers
and cakes to be found in the land.
Don't buy crackers made aat dis
tance, shipped here and stored in
musty warehouses; they're not
wholesome. Marvin's are baked
tresh every morning and sent at once
to customers. We have no big ware,
houses—no use for them. It's all
we can do to bake crackers and cakes
fast enough to till orders.
Marvin's crackers and cakes are
what you want. You can get them
from your grocer.
Our Tiade.
This month has been away ahead
of any former Januury. The reason
is that when people come
in and examine our goods and hear
the prices they invariably buy.

The Reason
For the great gain in our business is
that when parties buy a bill of us
they are so we.l pleased with the
value of their purchases compared
with the amount of money invested
that they give vent to their satisfac

thereby become advertising agents

Grip Gets the Blame,
But in a great many cases it is not
the grip, but impure, unwholesome
food that is responsible for sickness
Crackers, for instance, that have teen
transported for a long distance and
stored in damp, mouldy ware houses
are very apt to breed disease. The
way to avoid this is to buy only
fresh, wholesome crackers,made right
here in Pittsburg That's the kind
Marvin's are. Don't be fooled into
buying crackers or cakes that are
said to be "just as good " Insist on
having Marvin's and you may be
sure of having the purest, the fresh
est, the best in the market.
We Are Bound
To clean out our wraps, blankets and
furs To do so we are offering them
