It provides that only colleges and institu

of $500,000 or more shall be empowered to
confer degrses. We doubt very much if
there are two oolleges in the State outside
of Philadelphia that have an endowment

bill passes, old-established institutions of

—Of all the schemes for the betterment
of our common school that passed by the
Senate last week, and now in the House
takes the belt. It proposes to compel
every school board in the State to pnrohase
a panorama on card board for the purpose
of acquainting the pupils of the pnblio
schools with the beauties of art and nature
and science. In other words, it is propos
ed to teaoh art, nature and science with
photographs. This fad, if adopted, is like
ly to prove a very oostly one. Tho worst
of it is that unless sohool boards iutrodaee
this scheme of instruction they will forfeit
the State appropriation. This is a good
bill to kill. Sohool boards need their mon
ey for other things now, such as building
new houses to accommodate the rapidly
array of scholars, and iUusiou
ary fads should not be forced upon theui.

Run, Monongalia Co. West Virginia,

is an employee, has developed an oil field
a mile or so wide and about twenty five
miles long.
—The ice gorge at Ford City below Kit
tanning moved out last Sunday and for a
while the river channel was a surging,
heaving, grinding mass of ice, a sight wit
nessed by everybody who could get to the
river. The ice broke away to within a
a mile of the town: but trom Kittaning t''

—A Philadelphia paper tells of an old
woman who was known to have amassed
considerable wealth, but who relused to
intrust it to any bank. Where she kep t
her money was a mystery, until she came
to die a few days ago. Then a thorough
search was made ol the premises without
disclosing the hiding place. Finally, when
the body was being prepared for burial, a
porous plaster on the old woman's side wa*
noticed, which did not lie as close to the
skin as such plasters generally do. Whc-D
the plaster was removed a number of gov
ernment bonds, representing the old wo
man's entire fortune, were found between
it and the skin.

Butler Co. teacher intends making an ef
fort for the trip, he or she, must organize

one, and will not easily be secured.
About 280 copies of the paper
come into Butler, and perhaps 1,000 iu all
into the county, daily; there will be 92 is
sues from March Ito June 15th; so you
see that about 00,000 coupons will come in
to this county and it will take them all
and probably as many more to insure a win
ner. Since writing the above we under
stand that the teachers ol Butler have set

—lt is said that no class of people sntfer
more with rheumatism than the farmers,
aud jet the remedy for this dread disease
is, or should be, right at hand. If celery
were eaten mure freely sufferers from
rheumatism would be comparatively few. It
is a mistaken idea that cold and damp pro
dace the disease; they simply develop it
When celery is eaten largely an alkaline
blood is the result, and where this exists
there can neither rheumatism nor gout. Ii
should not only be eaten raw, but cooked.
Cut it into small pieces and boil till soft
in as little water as possible Add to this
a little rich milk, thicken slightly with
flour and season with butter, pepper and
salt. The tender leaves and small ends of
the stalk, whioh are usually thrown away,
should be used for soups; cut fine and use
for vegetable soup, or dry the large leaves
crumble them to powder and use for sea
oning other soups. And no part of the
oelery may be wasted.
—Circumstances have very little to do
with human happiness. We labor under
the impression that if we could nave our
own way and create our own environment
we should be continuously contented, but
the impression has no basis in fact. In
deed, the plainest of all truths —it we
think seriously on ttie subject—is that we
are independent of everything except our
own souls. It the soul is bright and
cheery, a single geranium on the window
sill will give us pleasure, whereas to the
soul that has formed the habit of fault
finding a whole conservatory can furnish
no enjoyment. In the last analysis, there
fore, neither wealth or poverty has very
much to do with your happiness or misery,
because the source of both lies in yourself
There are people wno would not be satis
fied it they were seated next to the Throne
in heaven, and there are others who have
that within them which would make even
a corner in purgatory comfortable.

Undoubtedly one of the most original
and highly satisfactory creations of the
Pennsylvania Railroad is the inauguration
of personally-conducted tours under the
supervisiou and direction of a I ourist Agent
ami Chaperon, and the marked success and ,
popularity of the tours to F.orida are due
to -everal causes; the complete appoint

of the rate and the return limit of tickets,
are among the features ttiat have attracted
the traveling public. ,

That a man is known was amply veri-
Gtd here last month on the occasion
of the visit to Butler of Levin, the
Optician of Pittsburg, who examine*
eyefc free of charge. The record of
the gentleman has evidently prrced
ed him for he found it next to impos
fcible to attend to half those who call
ed. Mr. Levin makes no charge for
examination and advice, and in case
he cannot help you he will tell you
so at once In this respect a 9 in
utany others he differs from most
Opticians, as he will not tonch a case
for any consideration that be does
no*j feel morally certain that be can
help. Mr. Levin was so taken with
the reception that he received on nis
last visit that he has determined to
visii Batler again ou Thursday nnd
Friday, March 14th und 15th on
which dates be will be at the Lowrj
House, as before Mr Leviu has
made the eye bis special study and
can refer to any number of well known
people in Butler and vicinity whom
he has benefited. Numerous com
plaints such as Nausea. Shooting
Pains in the bead, Vertigo, Violent
Headaches, Drowsiness after eating,
and many others which are generally
attributed to some remote cause are
directly tracable to the eyes If you
are troubled in any way with yonr
bead you may rest assured that the
eyes are the cause Remember the
dates Thursday and Friday, Match
14tb and 15th, aud also the fact that
there is no charge for examination
and advice, aud in case you cannot
be benefited Mr Levin will tell you
so at once. The clerk at the Lowry
House will direct yon.
