—The Pittsburg papers note the extra
ordinary death rate among the babies
there and blame it on the milk. Good or
pure milk is as wholesome a thing as a
child can drink; and on the other hand im
pure or improperly handled milk is a pois
on. The milk law of New Jersey has done
wonders for the supply in that state, and
we would like to see it adopted in this
state. Every can of milk that enters a
V>wn ol that state is inspected by an er
pert, and the cans are properly cleansed
and aired before being retained. The
producers know enough to take the animal
heat out of the milk before canning it; not
to mix cold and warm milk, not to ship
milk from a sick cow, and a dozen other

last week, and has a six hbl. pumper.
There are from 10 to '2 producers in that
field, averaging 7to 8 bbls. No dry holes
have been drilled in this held.
PAKKRR—Crombie Allen, writing from
Parker, says that town is now living her
second youth, on account of tho nrke
on the Itoßenberry. He says tho now
field is the most mysterious and promis
ing in the oil region. Some producers re
gard it as an extension of the Squaw
Valley belt. Others deem it merely a
pocket. Tip-top is still doing over 200
tiarrels a day, and that seems to be her
"steady regular." Adams, Biglows and
Heydrick have two other wells drilling
near by, called technically No 1
and No. 2. Tbe latter is popularly known
as McKinley, which I was allowed to
name. It will determine the trend of the
field into a vast territory to the east. The
McKinley well will not be true to the
name if she in not a winner. Tho I'arkcr
i field to-day presents strange attractions to
the spectator. This week aud next It will
be the observed of aM observers in oildom.

Scott White of North Beaver township
Lawrence Co., had a horrible experience
while hiving bees Monday at the home
of his brother-in-law, William Clarlc.
The bees had swarmed on the limb of aii
apple tree and White climbed the tree to
saw off the limb.
He had aot taken the precaution .•covtr
his face aud as soon as the bees discovered
him they attacked him. Rendered wild
with their stints White dropped to the
ground. The bees followed literally
swarming on his head until nothing could
be seen about his face but the black
moving mass. He tore them off with
his builds as he rolled farther and farther
from the tree. There was no getting rid
of them except by squeezing them to
death and after rolling and fighting for
almost half a mile, White finally got his
coat off and wrapped it about his face.
The poison from the bee stings began to
take effect and soon his face was swelled
so that the skin was almost bursting.
Friends who had witnessed the fight
carried White to the,house Where over
100 bee stings were picked from his face.
He is in a critical condition.
The I'eiiiaylituiia Railroad's Popular
Excursion.* to the Seashore.
$lO foe Twklvk Days.
No other Summer outictf api eaU so
strongly to the people of W eastern Penn
sylvaaia as the Pennsylvania Hailroad
Company's popular excursions to the sea
coast of New Jersey. For years they have
been looked forward to as the holiday
events of each Summer, and every season
bas seen them grow more popular. The
reason of the gteat favor in which they
are heid is easy to see, The rate of $lO
for the round trip is phenomenally low
considering the distance and the high
charac erof the service; the limit of
twelve days just fits the time set apart for
the average vacation, and the dates of the
excursions are most con voniently adjusted.
There is also the widest field for choice
in the selection ol the resort. Atlantic
City, Cape May, Sea Isle City, and Ocean
City are the choicest of the Atlantic coast
resorts, anfl <uiy eme of them may be
visited under thu»*> arrangements.
The dates of the excursions are July 23,
August C and 20, and tie rates will be as
follows: Pittsburg, airaßutler, $10; pro
portionate rates from points.
A special train of parlor ears and day
coaches will leave Pittsburg on each of
the above mentioned dates at 8.55 A. M.,
and connect at Philadelphia with special
train via the sew Delaware liiyer Bridge
route, landing passengers at Atlantic City
in twelve hours from PlMburg;' ot pass
engers may spend the ni£ht H ' Philadel
phia and proceed to the shore V»y regular
train from Market Streo' Wharf the follow

Tickets will also bo good on regular

goods for 6jfc—and they're all stylish
largest assortment at some of the
lot are 10c goods—others I2j4c—light
colors, and a lot of the 6#c ones in dark
