—ls the only complete and Genuine Wild
West. Let it be fully understood that
Pawnee Bill's Superb Entertainment is not
a "show" in the ordinary sense ot the
term. His Wild West is not a paltry imi
tation, such as has been given by all oth
ers who have pretended to give Wild West
Shows. There are many reasons why al!
others were and are mere imitators, and
generally more or less trilling adjuncts to
shows of other sorts. Even the Great
Forepaugh and Barnum Shows, the larg
est of tented exhibitions, with their mil
lions of capital, have attempted to give
Wild West Exhibitions, but have abandon
ed them as failures. Even their enormous
tents were entirely too snail too give a
real Wild West, and their time to limited
to give that feature of their shows more
than a very few minutes upon their vast
and varied programmes Pawnee Bill's
Exhibition is given in a vast canvass en
closure of several acres, with no canoby
overhead, eqceptiug the asure sky and
water-proof awning, which cover the
6,000 seats erected lor spectators. Paw
nee Bill is and has been tor 10 years the
White Chief of the powerful Pawnne tribe,
and as such has several noted Chiefs,
Warriors, Braves and their Families,
which no other white man, no matter how
great his capital, could secure for exhibi
tion purposes.

The county Commissioners have reduc
ed the millage this year from 4 to 3. The
"minute" in the Commissioners' docket
states that owing to the frosts and the
poor out-look, and believing that
by strict economy we may be able to
conduct the business of the county on a tax
of three mills instead of four which we had
previously determined upon: especially if
the people give us their hearty co-opera
tion in promptly paying their taxes and
not insisting upon extraordinary expendi
tures in the construction of bridges and
opening of new roads; we, the commis
sioners of Butler county Pa., do hereby on
motion unanimously agree to reduce the
millage on valuation lor county purposes
lrom 4 to 3 mills for the year of 1895.
John Dindinger, Reuben Shanor and Sol
Dunbar, Committee on the First and Third
ward lines were in Butler last Friday (the
meeting was fixed for show-day to suit
Reuben), and they recommended that the
• Island" be annexed to the Third ward.
The line between the wards will hereafter
be Main street and its extension to the
south line of the borough. This will in
crease the vote of the Third ward by about
one hundred.
There has been some talk in Indiana, Pa.
of prosecuting Judge Harry White for per
jury but the Messenger there says:—There
are certain inherent difficulties in prose
cuting a charge ot perjury against Judge
White on account of taking the oath of
office. Not on account, however, of a lack
of sufficent testimony to warrant a prose
cution, but on account of the peculiar con
ditions existing. He could not properly
be tried on his own court, because he
assists in drawing the jury and filling the
jury wheel. A change ot venue would be
necessary. Such trial could not be heard
by either Judges Barker, Doty or Keyburr.
Hut perhaps the most cogent reason may
be briefly summarized by a Iriend of ours
the other day who, commenting on the
outcome of the contest, summed up his
conclusions by saying "dog won't eat
dog." "The bearings t>' this," as Captain
Bunsby remarked on one occasion; "lies
in the application of it."

The Spiritualists of Titusville are very
much exercised over what is generally
considered an expose of Professor A Rod
hermal. a medium, who claims for himself
23 years experience.
At a private seance, a widower, was ltd
to believe the spirit of his wife was to be
materialized. When the apparent form of
of a woman appeared from behind the car
tains the gentlemon, who had been a very
affectionate husband, frantically endeavor
ed to embrace it.
At this juncture the lady escort, who
had been holding his hands and who is a
sister of the medium, endeavored to hold
the excited man at bay This aroused his
suspicions at orce. lie asked a friend to
light a match and freed himself from his
esconrt. Be grappled with the supposed
The light went out, the sister succeeded
in breaking his hold and assisted the me
dium to escape crying: You are killiig my
The man exolaimed: "If it is my wife I
have a right to embrace her." Bat the
form rushed behind the curtain creating a
great shuffle and upsetting chairs and
The medium ot the spirit had been
speaking with an Irish accent, but on
being disturbed it lost its dialect and cried:
"I'll break your nose." The story is veri
fied by five reputable persons, who helped
to make up the circle and who are willing
to make affidavit to the statement.
The man of mystery is said to come
from Bradford, where he has been giving
public seances. Be also claims to possess
the remarkable faculty of successfully lo
cating oil wells and has made an extensive
canvass of the Pleasantvill9 field.
The fabulous priee, however, has so far
proved an obstacle to his perfeoting any
deals of this kind. He possesses in the
highest degree the confidence of the peo
ple of his own faith in spite of his recant
experience and claims to be able to vindi
cate himself.
