Help! Help!! Help!!!
The ladies of the Hospital Association
have been sadly disappointed by the
response, or rather lack of response to
their appeal to the fanners of the
county issued several weeks ago through
all of the local newspapers for contribu
tions of farm products for use in the
Butler County General Hospital, several
bushels of potatoes from one farmer,
Robert D. Stevenson, of McClnre sta
tion, being the sum total of such aid
received up to date. The ladies cannot
believe that this result is due to unwil
lingness on the part of the people to
contribute of their abundance to so
worthy a charity, but attribute the fail
ure in a prompt response to their appeal
to thoughtlessness, procrastination, and
perhaps a general impression that
where so many are supposed to be able
and willing to contribute abundantly,
no one's mite would be missed.
Under the continued and increasing
necessity for assistance in the support
of patients not able to render compen
sation for their maintenance while re-
ceiving treatment, the ladies have de
cided to issue another appeal and to
name a day, the day before Thanksgiv
ing, when they believe the hearts of all
will be open to the cry of the needy and
suffering, on which they ask that con
tributions of provisions be made for use
in the hospital.
Among articles needed are butter,
eggs, potatoes, apples, flour, meal, win
ter vegetables and all varieties of farm
products of use in a well regulated
Contributions may be left at the store
of J. G. &W. Campbell, either on the
day above specified or at any other time
that may better suit the convenience of
the donor and Mr. Campbell will deliv
er them at the hospital free of charge,
making a record of the donation in
each case.

A Fatal Aeeidoiit.
Last Thursday. Noy. :J<J. on the Mar
tin Sitler farm in Jackson twp.. James
Gallagher a well to <lo young fanner
met with a fatal accident while haul
ing corn fodder. Mr. Gallagher was
loading the fodder and while topping
out the load, standing facing the team
on the rear of the load, the horses sud
enly started for the nest shock, thus
causing him to lose his balance H>- fell
backward from the load upon his head
and shoulders, which instantly paralyz
ed his entire body from shoulders down.
His brother John was with him at
the time, called for help and took him
to his home. Physicians and loving
hands however could not relieve him;
he was conscious and realized his criti
cal condition. Forty eight hours after
the accident he died from the effect of
spraining his spinal chord which caused
the paralvsis. The deceased was born
in Worth twp. this county; arrived at
the age of 38 years 11 months •> days.
He received his education at Mt. Pleas
ant, Westmoreland county and Lewis
burg, Union county, academies of this
state, he afterward taught school for 12
years. In April 1887 he was married to
Miss Loraina Sitler, eldest daughter of
Martin Sitler. with whom they lived at
the time of his death. They were bless
ed with three children; Clarence. Louisa
and Leon, who w : th their mother sur -
vive him.
He had three brothers: Rev. Joseph,
who died nearly a year ago; John, who
lives in Jackson twp. and Dr. Robert E.
v/ho resides in Phila. His mother. Mrs.
Hay, is still liytng, also several step sis
ters. The deceased was a member of
the Maccabees and is said to carry a
$2,00<) policy in the same order He
was also a member of the Baptist
church at Evans City. He was widely
know, honored and respected by his
fraternal brothers; a consistent church
member, well thought of as a citizen
and neighbor; a provident husband and
a loving father.
The remains were taken from his
home to the Reformed church in Har
mony, where a large number of friends
and relatives assembled and listened to
his pastor Rev. J. M. Patterson of
Evans City preached from, ' 'Lo, I am
■with yon always, even unto the end of
the world" Matthew 28 —20. Rev. Wil
son a former pastor and Rev. A. J.
Heller D. D. also spoke. The impres
sive services were closed by singing
"God be with you till we meet again."
The interment took place in the Men
nonite cemetery near Harmony.
The deceased possessed a strong phy
sique weighing 190 pounds, his sudden
death was a great shock to the family,
and much sympathy was manifested by
all who knew him. The residence of
Martin Sitler. where the deceased liv
ed is one of the oldest homesteads in
Jackson twp. the present house being
the third one built there, and while Mr.
Gallagher is the first one to die in the
Sitler family, who have liyed there for
48 years, he is also the first one who died
on this homestead, now fully one hun
dred years old. H. W. B.

The story hinges npon the efforts «»f
a generous hearted woman, Helen, to
conceal the infidelity of her sister-in
law, Carmen, and in so doing, the inno
cent woman brings suspicion upon her
self. Helen's husband, suspecting his
wife to be the really guilty one, deter
mines upon a terrible revenge. He
hires a burtrlar, whom he catches in the
act of breaking into his house, to abduct
the child he believes to be his wife's,
but not his own. The second act takes
place seven years later. The child now
known as Fan Fan, has been reared as a
thief by the burglar, Le Renard. This
Fan Fan is detected in the act of pick
ing his own mother's pocket, (they do
not of course know each other) but she
refuses to claim the pocketbook and he
escapes. Later in the act Fan Fan's
father, George D'Armont, appears. He
is now anxious to restore Fan Fan to
his mother. D'Armont meets Le Ren
ard and recognizes him as the man who
stole the child. He offers Le Renard
thirty thousand francs for the return of
the boy. Le Renard promises to pro
duce him, but when he attempts to do
so he learns that Fan Fan has fled.
Determined not to let the money slip
from his grasp, Le Renard passes off a
nephew of his named Claude, a sickly
lad of Fan Fan's age, as D'Armont's
In the third act Fan Fan appears at
his mother's house and is able so estab
lish his identity. Learning that Le
Renard has papers that will prove his
mother's innocence he visits his foster
father's thieves' retreat in Paris, secures
the papers and is also the means of res
cuing his real father from peril. The
scene in this act where he opens the
lock on the Seine and throws the villain
into the river is not only a taking bit of
melodrama but a clever example of the
stage carpenter's art. The last scene
brings everything to a satisfactory con
clusion and" the triumph of virtue over
