A Local Strike.
Butler was the scene of an interesting
little "strike," last week, that came about
this way.
Geo. Shaffner, a non-union stonemason
has the contract for the cellar walls of the
I. J. McCandless house on South Main
street., and also that for the wall in front
of the JefTerson street school-building, and
thb masons he employed to help him with
the jobs were all anion men excepting
William Barr, of the West End, who was
employed on the JefTerson street job.
The Bricklayer~|andStonemason's Union
of Butler had a me eting a few nights ago
and resolved to "strike" unless Barr was
discharged, and so informed Shaffner next
day. ShafTner paid the Union men, and
hired some non-union men to assist Barr
finish both jobs, and on Monday work was
progressing on both.
Shaffner says that Barr was the best
man he had; that some of the men who
struck learned what they know of their
trade under him, and that they expressed
regret at leaving their work but said "our
union says we musn't."
Barr is an old stonemason who has lived
in Butler for several years, and he says he
will finish both jobs.
Shaffer also has the contract for the
foundation of the Patterson building, and
is going ahead with it, and whether this
will be followed by trouble with union
bricklayers, carpenters, plasterers,painters,
etc, remains to be seen.

port, he has just signed Mr. Edward N.
Hoyt for the title role. Mr. Hoyt is an
actor of extended experience, having
played leading legitimate roles for many
years past. His resemblance to Julius Cae
sar, according to the admirable bust in the
British Museum so effectively described by
Mr. John C. Ropes in Scribner's magazine,
has been frequently commented upon. In

production a truly artistic one.

Camp Black.
On Tuesday a party of ladies lrom Butler
paid a visit toCamp Black, where all of them
had sons or other near relations. The par
ty consisted of Mrs, J. C. Tanderlin, Mrs.
Gumpper. Mrs. Montgomery, Mrs. W. C.
Negley, and Miss Alice Kiskadden. Rev.
W. E. Oiler also accompanied the party.
Each bore a huge and carefully filled basket
of substantiate for respective and lucky
members of Co. E. They were received
at Camp Black in a most hospitable man
ner by the superior officers, and Col. W.
T. Meohling and Capt. Ira McJunkin were
especially courteous.
The boys were very glad to see their
mothers and sister, and seemed just about
as much pleased with the dinner spread
for them by the party.
Everything at camp seemed quiet, but a
more serious feeling was observable, trace
able to the shooting of Mr. Frick. Regard
ing the lams affair it was held that he de
served severe punishment and expulsion
from the service. There was some differ
ence of opinion regarding the hanging up
by the thumbs.
The soldiers look well—bronzed and
hearty—and their camp life is probably
destined to become a joyful reminiscence
to them some day. At present it seems

Timely Health Suggestions.
A recent circular from the State Board
of Health gives the following hints and ad
Cholera morbus is caused by improper
food and sadden chilling of the body after
exposure to great heat. Certain substances
will produce it in certain persons, such for
instance as veal, raw milk taken with fish,
or shell fish, and all dishes cooked with
milk such as rico pudding, and even ice
cream, when kept too long. Unripe and
over-ripe fruit, especially when taken with
draughts of ice water, will cause it; but
sound, ripe fruit is a natural food in hot
weather and wholesome. Avoid becoming
chilled during sleep. In a climate as
changeable as ours, a light blanket should
always be at hand, to be drawn up in case
it suddenly becomes cold during the night.
Persistent summer diarrhoea is usually
caused by malaria, sewer air or impure
water. The conditions liable to contami
nate air and water, should bo carefully
sought out and remedied. Tho water can
be rendered safe by boiling.
As dysentry is often epidemic, it is wise
to consider every case as a possi ble
source of danger to others and to disinfect
the discharges with care.

The New Castle Vourunt telle this
story on a Lawrence county man; One of
the citizens of Pnlaiki towuahip has been
an extensive raiser of turkeys, and his
method is somewhat peculiar. Early in
the spring he sets in the neighborhood of
100 turkey egg> under the common bare
yard hens: In nearly every case the eggs
were hatched. "When the "turklets" be
came old enough to take care of themselves,
the owner of them chased his brood to tho
woods, where they thrived and grew lat on
what they could pick up. The owner did
not see the birds for months. Shortly be
fore Thanksgiving, which is known as tur
key harvest, the man referred to went out
into the woods for miles around and chased
all the turkeys he could find into his barn
yard. lie then counted out 101 and penned
them up, chasing the others away. He
had set one hundred eggs in the spring
and calculated that there ought to be one
hundred turkeys. The extra one captured
was for the trouble he had in driving them
During one of the recent thunder-storms,
John F. Kaney, aged 16, of Pardoe,Mercer
county, was killed by lightning while
building a load of hay which his father and
grandfather were pitching on the wagon.
The men were slighly stunned, and one
horse was knocked down. The boy was
struck on the left side of the head, extend
ing down his left side, tearing the clothes
from his body.
Bradford was visited by a terrific hail
storm last Friday afternoon, during which
hailstones two inches in diameter fell.
The roof of the St. James hotel was torn
ofT and the house deluged. The loss in
the town is estimated at $50,000.
