It provides that only colleges and institu

confer degrees. We doubt very much if
there are two oolleges in the State outside
of Philadelphia that have an endowment

of oar common school that passed by the

takes the belt. It proposes to oompel

a panorama on card board for the purpose
of acquainting the pupils of the public
schools with the beauties of art and nature
and science. In other words, it is propos
ed to teaob art, nature and science with
photographs. This fad, if adopted, is like
ly to prove a very costly one. Tlio worst
of it is '.hat unless school boards introduce
this scheme of instruction they will forfeit
the State appropriation. This is a good
bill to kill. School boards need their mon
ey for other things now, such as building
new houses to accommodate the rapidly
inocreasing array of scholars, arid illusiou
ary fads should not be forced upon them.

—A Philadelphia paper tells of an old
woman who was known to have amassed
considerable wealth, but who refused to
intrust it to any bank. Where she kept
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 closa to the
skin as such plasters generally do. When
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
county immediately. The prize is a big
one, and will not easily be secured.
About 280 copies of the paper
come into Butler, and perhaps 1,000 in all
into the connty, 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

more wiih 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
duce 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. It
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, which are usually thrown away,
should be used for soups; cut fine and use
for vegetable soup, or dry the large leaves
orumble 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 have our

we should be continuously contented, but

ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.
That, a man is known was amply veri
fied here last month on .the occasion
of the visit to Butler of Levin, the
Optician of Pittsburg, who examines
eyes free of charge. The record of
the gentleman has evidently preced
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 as in
many others he differs from most
Opticians, as be will not touch a case
for any consideration that he does
no; feel morally certain that be can
help. Mr. Levin was so taken with
the reception that be received on his
last visit that be ha-- determined to
visit Butler again on Thursday and
Friday, March 14th and 15th on
which dates he will be at the Lowry
House, as before Mr Leyin has
made the eye his 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
trains in tbe bead, Vertigo, Violent
Headaches, Drowsiness after eating,
aud many others which are generally
attributed to some remote cause are
directly tracable to the eyes If you
are troubled in any way with your
head you may rest assured that the
eyes are the cause Remember the
dates Thursday and Friday, March
14th aud 15tb, aud also the fact that
there is no charge for examination
and advice, aud in ease you cannot
be beueftted Mr Levin will tell you
so at once. The clerk at the Lowry
House will direct you.
