—lt is an avt ful strain on a woman's

i ,-g utensils, etc.
—Mr. J. V. Ritts has purchased the
Leidecker lots at the corner of North Mc-
Kean and Fulton streets, and intends
building this summer.
—A certain down-town woman says
that some of the girls have certainly room
enough to "laugh in their sleeves" at the
present period.
—The school directors of Butler have
let the contract for tbe painting of the
Jefferson St. School building and it is in
order to remark that there several public
buildings in Butler that need painting.
—B. H. Huselton has contracted with
Adam Haffner for a three-story brick,office

—Owing to the adv. of the Trustees

ing in on us Thursday morning, our local
correspondence yet on the copy hook had
to be ommitted this week.
—A scientist says that holding the
breath will make anybody proof against
the sting of a bee. This would be useful
information if anybody had time to think
of it and nse it before the bee began opera
—The laying of the large pipe line of
the Citizens Gas Co. from their wells east
of town to a point on tbe creek bank near
the old Miller furniture lactory was com
pleted Friday. The line was there con
nected with other lines running North and

made by the lines of this Company.
—We publish in another place the now
lee bills for Justioe3 of the Peace and
Constables, as passed by the late Legisla
ture and signed by the Governor Tho bill
makes the fees uniform all over the State,
both town and oounty. It was introduced
by Hon. D. B. Douthett, of this county
who secured its passage through the House
by special orders.
—Col. Thompson, Frank Kohler and
others who ha7e been to Chioago lately
say that the stories of extortion are all
nonsense. One can live as cheaply or as
extravagantly there as in any other large
town. A good room can be secured at
any of the first class hotels at $2 for one or
$3 for two persons, and at private and
boarding houses for half that; and the
prices of your meals depends entirely upon
the restanrants you patronize.
—lt is reported that the P. S. AL.E. R
R. is to be extended to Pittsburg, cross
ing the Allegheny river |at Aspinwall and
running ac ross the East End to the Carneg
ie Mills at Homestead and the Jones &
Langhlin Mills on the south Side, where it
will oonneot with the Wabash system
whioh is to be extended from Steubenville
to Pittsburgh. The object is a new coal
and ore routo to the Lakes.
—The Plate Glass Works hero shut
down last Saturday, and as the ware room
of the works is lull of finished glass, fur
which there is but little demand at pres
ent it is supposed that the shut down will
continue it least three months. There
are now fifteen plate glass factories in the
oountry; the s'.ock on hand is said to
amount to over three million squaro feet
and it is probable that all the factories will
abut down during the month. The clos
ing of the works here has thrown over
five hundred men out of steady employ
—At tho evening services in the Pr c£-
byteriac. Churoh at Butler last Sunday,
Rev. Oiler gave an outline of the proceed
ings of the General Assembly of the ohnrch
at Washington, speaking particularly of
the trial and conviction of Dr. Briggs.
Stated in plain English the charges against
Dr. Briggs were that his teachings under
mine faith in the Bible; that his influence
upon young men att ending the Theologi
cal Seminary was harm ful, and that by
reason ot his nnsound belief and utterances
the interests of the church were endanger
—Here is a straight truth that carries
with it some good advice: The commu
nity in which each individual citizen has
publio spirit enough to keep his own sur
roundings neat and clean, and whose o ffi
oials prevent the accumulation of debris
on the streets, is likely to escape an epi
demic of cholera during the coming
months. In other words, sweep before
yonr own door, cl ean up your owu prem
ises, don't worry about your neighbor's
premises, the chances are that he will see
what you are doing and will follow .. you r
good example.
—The Ministerial Association of New
Castle, Pa., is agitating against the
practice of opening caskets at church
funerals. One of their number, Rev.
I. A. Thayer, recently said: We have
been trying for sometime to break up the
idea that a circus must be made out ot a
funeral. There is nothing more disgust
ing to me than to see a whole congrega
tion file around the front of a ohnrch
merely to get a glimpse of a face which
perhaps many of them have never seen
before. The custom should be abolished
without ceremony.

The News Spreads Like Wild Fire.
What newst
Why, that Klinglers' are keeping one
hundred thousand dollars in Butler that
went away last year for Flour and Feed,
and at the same time saving the consumer
twenty thousand dollars. And are they
doing it ? Just ask the Railroads and the
Dealers T
But won't Klinglers' "bust up" selling
goods at such ruinously low prices? Now
let us give you a pointer. When you get
"A CARD" you get these "ruinously low
prices," and what are they? Simply man
ufacturers first prices, or dealers costprices
That's the truth in a nut shell. Buyt
wherever you please in Butler, you can'
touch these prices. But listen, as we are
manufacturers, and on a large scale toe,
for we have two mills and an elevator, we
get the manufacturers profit. Of oourse
the profit is small on a little lot to the
consumer, after deducting the cost of hand
ling and delivering. But don't fret about
that. We have a large wholesale trade
elsewhere, and don't expect to get rich on
our home trade alone.
For once and for all we want to silence
the rumors which are current, and wish
our readers would bear in mind the follow
We guarantee the quality and weight of
all the goods we sell. Xo short
Wcigiu Willi us. We will refund purchase
moaey in each and every case, if custom
ers are not satisfied and return the goods.
We deliver every thing/rse of charge, in
side of town limits, and to the railroad
Don't you think it was high time for the
Klinglers to make the break ? The finan
cial outlook is anything but bright. Butler
is sharing in the general depression. What
better time to husband our resources ! Pro
tect the farmer, for he's the backbone of
Butler yet. Protect your wage earner, for
he spends all his money with you, and you
need him. Our plan means protection to a
class who are indispensable to the pros
perity of our town. Hundreds of citizens
have come to us and said: "You never
did a better thing in Butler in your life."
So then "get a card" and not only give
you support to a scheme which is already a
benefaction, but save your money, and "eat
and feed goods which are warranted abso
lutely pure and the best made.
It is good lor a year, during which time
we pledge ourselves to give-you our lowest

Fleur De Lis.
If anything were wanting to give
Marvin's Pittsburgh Bakery a
National reputation, it has been sup
plied by their latest novelty "Fleur
de Lis" Biscnit. To tempt an epicure
(a luxurious and dainty eater) is one
good thing; to satisfy him is another
and quite different matter. "Fleur
do Lis" is the acme of Marvin's
genius, the epicurean's delight, and
best of all, can be had by rich and
poor alike, for Marvin's motto, is
first, quality, then quantity, then
reasonable prices. "Pennsylvania

Where Everybody Prospers.
Phenomenal success of a two year old
industrial town.
The man who is poor because he does not
go to meet prosperity will have a chance to
turn over a new leaf by attending the sale
of lots at New Kensington on the Alle
gheny Valley Railroad, eighteen miles
from Pittsburg, which begins on Wednes
day, June 14th,and continuing daily there
Since this town was laid out two years
ago it has developed into one of the most
prosperous industrial centers in the coun
try, having nine thousand inhabitants,
fifteen large manufactories, employing
twenty four hundred men and paying out
five thousand ($5,000.00) dollars a day in
wages; churches of all denominations; two
fine public school houses; effective police
and fire protection and an ample supply of
pure water. Electric light and telephone
wires are being put up, and an electric
street railway seven miles in length, con
necting Parnassus with Tarentum
and passing through New Kensington is in
process of construction.
In this prosperous town there is not an
idle man. and property is rapidly increas
ing in value. The merchant who seeks a
paying trade where there are no drones,
and the investor who wants a chance to
double bis capital in a short time are
equally interested in going to New Ken
Thirty trains run between New Kensing
ton and Pittsburg daily.
Free round trip tickets from Pittsburg
can be bad at the Pittsburg Office of The
Burrell Improvement Company, Xo. 79
Fourth Avenue. Railroad fare will be re
funded to purchasers of lots.
That all may have opportunity of buying
property on easy terms, a payment of $25
down and $lO to $25 per month will buy a
lot at Xew Kensington, at original prices.
