FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Saturday last, while
some little boys were amusing themselves on
the "Turn-Table" of the Huntingdon & Broad
Top Railroad, a little son of William Stewart
of this borough, was so severely injured by be
ing caught between the end of the Table and
the track, where they connect, that ho died in
a very short time after. The facts of the case
are substantially as follows: The boys had been
swinging the Table around, and, unfortunately
the little boy killed, was sitting with his legs
banging on the outside, and was caught and
crushed in the manner nod shape above nam
ed. So firmly was the little creature wedged
in that his companions were unable to release
him, as their united efforts could not move the
ponderous Tullio. Lettiiing their little compa
nion they hastened to procure the aid of some
men, and were about half an hour in getting
help.. Mr. David Friedley, Mr. James Port and
one or two others hastened to the spot, and re
moving a portion of the railroad track, suc
ceeded in getting the little fellow, now insen
sible, extricated from his awful situation. He
was brought home, medical aid immediately
summoned, and everything which skill could
do or affection dictate, was done, but all in vain
for the poor little sufferer after lingering until
4 o'clock, p. in., calmly breathed his last.
This is another sad warning to our boys, who
after repented warnings, will persist in indul
ging in these dangerous sports. We have fee
quently seen small boys hanging to the cars
as the train was passing rapidly along, appa
ready as indifferent and unconcerned as they
well could be. They should learn wisdom from
the sad experience of others, and never ven
ture near the railroad, unless unavoidably ne
THAT .Jenaticri.."—We published some
two or three-weeks aro, a silly story, which we
noticed going the rounds of our exchanges, and
which,we believe originated with the Hollidays
burg Standard, stating, as a veritable fact, and
detailing with a long-faced gravity, the absurd
and most ludicrous story that a man at Mt. U
nion, in this county had become mute, or had
been turned into a piece of limestone, or some
thing of that kind, as a visitation on him by
Providence for blasphemous expressions he is
said to have used, in consequence of some
blight having happened to his crop. We do
not wish to spoil a good story, and one which
may have a good effect by working*uputi the
fears of profane men, but we do most positive•
ly and firmly protest against saddling this pile•
nomenon upon this county. We pronounce it,
so or as Huntingdon County is concerned, a
ridiculous hoax—absurd, without the slightest
foundation. Some persons fix the locality of
this "wonderful tniracle of the nineteenth cen
tury" near Lewisburg, Union county, but we
aro inclined to look upon the whole story as a
"bug.a-boo" tale. As soon as drives from one
location it settles in another. .

We call the attention of all, old and young,
to this wonderful prcparati sn, which turns hack
to its original color, gray hair—covers the head
of the bald wi th a luxuriant growth—removes
the dandruff, itching, and all cutaneous erap•
tions—causes a continual flow of the natural flu
ids ; and hence, if used as a ree tam dressing
for the hair, will preserve its color and keep it
from falling to extreme old age, in all its natu
ral beauty. We call then upon the bald, gray,
or diseased in scalp, to use it ; and surely, the
young will not, as they value the flowing locks,
or the witching curl, ever he wi thotzt it. Its
praise is upon the tongue of thous.,nds.

Among . the many preparations now in use for
the restoring, preserving and beautifying the
hair, there arc none that we can recommend with
snore confidence than Prof. Wood's Hair Resto

This preparation possesses the most invigorating
qualities, and never fails in producing the must
happy results when applied according to direc

ment fur a few of the innumerable certificates
which have been sent by parties, who have been
benighted by it, and who fell happy in giving tes
timony to its wonderful effects produced on them.

OR LIVER REMEDY
Is an article that everybody needs who is not in
a perfect state of health, for the Liver is second
only to the heart in our human economy, and
when that is deranged the whole vital machine
ry rims wrong. To find a medicine peculiarly
adapted to this disease has been the study of ono
of the proprietors, in a large and extended prac
tice for the past twenty years, and the .result of
his experiment is the Invigorator, as a never.
failing remedy where medicine has any power to
help. Asa liver remedy it has no equal, as all
testify who use it.
A lady writing front Brooklyn, says, "Would
that I could express in this short letter the val
ue your Invigorator has been to me in raising a
large family of children, foe it has never failed
to relieve all affections of the stomach, bowels,
or attacks of worms. If mothers once had this
remedy placed within their roach, and were
taught bow to use it, a fearful and untold amount.
of agony might be saved."
One o onr prominent bankers says, "Theor ,
six years since, I found myself running down
with a liver difficnltv ; resorting to your , Invig
orator, was greatly relieved, and continuing for
a season, was entirely motored.
A clergyman called at our office the other day
and said he had given a poor woman a bottle,
who was suffering very badly from Liver Com
plaint, and before she had taken the whole of it
she was at work earning bread for her family.
A gentleman recently from the West, says,
while at Chicago, lie was attained with a slow,
lingering fever, that bathed the skill of physi

One of our city merchants said, while .at

which relieved hint so that he was able to attend
An acquaintance, whose business compels him
to write most of the time, says, he became so
weak., to be unable at times to hold his pen,
while at mho's, bleep would overpower him, but
the Invigorator cured him.
A gentleman from Brooklyn called on us a
week or two since, looking but the shadow of a
man, with sitin yellow, pale and deathlike. Ho
had been for a long time suffering from Jaundice
and Dyspepsia, and unable to attend to his busi
ness. We saw him again today a changed man
and to use his expression, he has not seen the
bottom of the first bottle, and further adds "it

Among the hundreds of Liver Remedies now

ver Invigorator. producing the most happy re.
antis on an who use it. Almost 'innumerable
certificates bare been given of the great virtue
of this modicios by those of the highest stand

preparation now before the politic.
