A UNIQUE hold-up was executed in

The Deadly Toy Pistol Muat Go. |
For several days prior to the Fourth
The Inquirer aod other newspapers
published articles warning the public j
against the U6e of the deadly toy pistol
aa a means of increasing the clamor of j
the celebration then impending. Store j
keeperswere informed that it was against
the law for them to sell these highly
dangerous weapons or explosives of any
kind to minors, and they were reminded
that if they did so they would subject
themselves to the penalty which the
law prescribes.
Parents were urged to forbid their
children from incurring the risk which
the handling of a toy pistol involves,
and an effort was made to imprees them
with the importance of taking care that
their orders were obeyed. In, fact ev
erything that was possible was done to
prevent what subsequently happened.
Either people did not read, or they de
liberately disregarded, the warnings ad
dressed to them, for the ravages of the
toy pistol were more extensive than
ever, and scarcely a day passes without
adding the name of some fresh victim
to the melancholy list
Tetanus, or lockjaw, as it is populat
ly called, which wounds inflicted by the
toy pistol are in spite of every precau
tion apt to occasion, is one of the most
dreadful of all the diseases to which hu
manity is subject, and it is absolutely
incurable. Death invariablj follows
the indescribable tortures by which its
course is attended. It is a common idea
that the end comes through the inabili
ty of the sufferer to take food conse
quent upon the locking of the jaws, but
this is an error The malady is one
which primarily affects the nervous
system. It causes the most frightful
spasms, which occur with increasing
rapidity until dissolution ensues. There
Is no more agonizing death.
Every one will agree that the moet
stringent measures should be taken to
save any human being from such a fate,
and the best thing to do to that end is
to enforce the law which forbids the
■ale of the toy pistol to persons nnder
age. Store-keepers who sell toy pistols
to children should be held to a strict
acconnt. It will be the duty of the
District Attorney to institute criminal
proceedings in the cases in which the
Coroner shall direct his attention. That
may bear hard upon the individual, but
it is the only way to protect the com
munity from a great and growing evil.
Liberty and License.
The appellate division of the N. Y.
Supreme Court has just decided, by a
vote of three to two, a question which
haa been vigorously debated since the
Northern Securities decision. Broadly
it is whether a combination of men
have the right to do as they please with
their own property. The particular
case was that of the book trust, compris
ing 95 per cent of tbe publishers of the'
country, which had sought to compel
a department store to adhere to the re
tail price list fixed by the trust by re
fusing to sell to it otherwise. The store
asserted its right to buy the books at
the regular wholesale prices and to sell
them for what it pleased. The court
decided against the trust upon the
ground that to uphold its position
wonld be to countenance a monopoly in
restraint of trade, thus recognizing the
righto of the public as being as vitally
involved aajthose of either the publishers
or the sellers.
The argument in favor of individual
liberty, so frequently put forward by
tbe promoters of tbe railroad merger
and the combinations, seems to mistake
license for liberty. It would be well to
remember tbe old-faabioned distinction
that true liberty does not infringe upon
the rights of others.—Dispatch.
EMERSON said "Men cease to interest
us when we find their limitations. The
only sin is limitation. As soon as you
once come np with a man'a limitations
it is all over with him. Has he talentaT
Has he enterprise? Has he knowledge?
It boots not Infinitely alluring and at"
tractive was be to you yesterday, a
great hope, a sea to swim in; now you
have found it a pond, and yon care not
if you see It again."
Jaws Unlocked by Antitoxin.
A rare operation was performed on
Willie Graham, a 5-year-old boy suffer
ing from lockjaw, the result of a
Fourth of July accident, at the hospital
in Ml Vernon N. Y, last Monday, Dr
Weiss opened the boy's skull and in
jected anti-toxin into his brain to kill
the tetanus germs.
The operation was witnessed by a half
dozen prominent physicians. Dr.
Weiss says he has strong nope for the
boy's recovery.
Young Graham was shot in the palm
of the band with a blank cartridge
from a toy pistol. He developed the
aymptona of lockjaw on Friday. His
neck became stiff and he went into con
vulsions. Then his jaws became lock
ed. The family sent for Dr. Weiss and
he advised the operation as
the only resort to save the child's life.
Young Graham's skull was trepanned
and the antitoxin which is manufac
tured from the blood of horses, admin
istered. Soon the little fellow's cheeks
began to redden, bis jaws relaxed and
he fell into a heavy sleep.

Senator A. G. Williams and Rev.

placed a metal box containing a Testa
ment, a roster of the congregation,
photographs of the old building torn
down, a sketch of the congregation and
the movement to build, and church and

Roy Snow, a son of Samuel Snow of

Joseph Cohn. aged 9 years, a son of
A. H. Cohn of Elm St. Butler, died at
Sharon, last Thursday, from lock-jaw
caused by a wound from a toy pistol,
which he received while celebrating
the 4th at Corry, with some boy friends.
He was buried at Pittsburg. The case
was a very sad one Joseph was burned
by the powder from the cap and came
in complaining of it. His mother
sent him to a doctor who dressed it and
gave directions bow to treat it. He
also went to the doctor several times
and the hand seemed to be getting
along nicely. The bov declared that it
gave him no paiti. On Tuesday morn
ing Mrs. Cohn started for Sharon to
visit another sister. On getting on the
train Joseph complained of his back
hurting him. On arriving at Sharon
he was unable to walk and bad to be
carried to the home of bis friends,
where medical aid was summoned,
and all was done for the little fellow
that was possible, but no relief could be
given him. The doctors told Mrs.
Cohn that the boy had lock jaw and his
life could not be saved. He suffered
great agony and died after 40 hours
Kennedy on Sunday Closing.
The Butler Ministerial Association, at
its July meeting, framed a petition to
Burgess Kennedy, asking that he en
force the Sunday closing law, especially
toward confectionery and cisar
stores and soda fountains on Main
street and Mr. Kennedy replied as
"Please be consistent Why ask the
dispenser of soda water or a toby to re
linquish his trade while the Mayor of
Greater Butler keeps open house with a
fine lot of horses at the service of the
public seven days in the week? Why
ask the man with big rent on Main
street who has hard enough time getting
along to cnt down his sales and leave
the Standard Steel Car Company alone?
Why is supplying means to quench the
public thirst not a matter of public
good when the Butler street railway
lines are ready to take yon to the park
to cool?
"There are also within the borough
limits oil men working more than 12
hours a day who hardly know what
Sunday is or when it comes, and yet
some oil magnates are called philan
"As Mayor I will enforce the laws in
existence, but will not make new ones
that will lead the outside world to think
I am a fossil or belong to a past genera
tion. If action must be taken on the
Sunday question and that action the
closing of the soda water stores, the
Ministerial Association is referred to the
District Attorney for aid in the cause."
Birthday Surprise.
On July 7th the friends and relatives
of Mr. Israel Shafler of Franklin twp.
gathered at his home—the object beins
to celebrate Mr. Shaffer's birthday.
Early in the day the company began
to arrived with well filled baskets, and
greetings of good will and best wishes
for our nigbly respected neighbor.
Bv twelve o'clock a table was erected/
in tbe shady grounds and a sumptuous 1
dinner was served. Guests were wait
*d upon by a willing committee of
young folks.
After dinner the meeting was cnlled
to order by Robert Barron, Esq. and
W. B. Cnrrie was appointed chairman i
and Verda M. Currie, secretary.
After a brief prayer by Rev. Erby of
Zion Baptist church, addresses were
made by Mr. John Weigle, J. C. Snyder
Rev. Erby and W. B. Ctirrie.
From these talks it was learned that
our neighbor, Mr. Shaffer, is the oldest
citizen born and raised in this school
district; also since onr "bees" are no
longer necessary, these gatherings were
highly recommended as a means of
bringing farmers into eloper fellowship
with each other, and in keeping them
them in sympathy with their brother
The crowd was then dismissed to en
joy themselves in social intercourse,
nntil the western sky reminded the
fanners that evening chores awaited
them, when all departed thinking a day
well spent and wishing Mr. Shaffer
many happy retnrns.
