the Democratic Committee of this county
will be continued with'out any changes. Isn't
this just a little bit impolite toward the late

the Democratic convention rather "played
it" on the liberal gentlemen last summer,
when Victor's heart was broken ; and now
he has cut them dead 1 " Can ,suCh things

Tag CouaTit] FAR.—Tho following letter
is of interest to the members of all the com
mittees appointed for the approaching Fair :
To Me IC,likr ur the Agitator':
I wish to say, through your paper, to the
" - limbers of the various committees, of the
County Fair, that any member declining to
serve on a Committee, is earnestly re nested
to give early notice to the Chairman of the
Executive Committee of his or her (Melina
tion. It is Unportant that the committees
should be alive and prompt. It has been the
experience heretofore'that about two-thirds
of the members of committees failedto put
in en appearance. This embarrasi,es the of
ficers of the Fair very much. The success
of a Fair greatly depends upon the prompt
ness and efficiency of its committees. The
names of the members of the committees
are published each week with tho premium
and - those Who compose them will take
notice of their appointment. The managers
are determined to make this the most suc
cessful Fair ever held in the county. To
this end they have offered very liberal pre
mituns—nearly three fold in amount those
over offered before.
It is sincerely hoped that the farmers in
the "region around Wont!' will take a lively
interest in this show, and help to make it a
credit to our county. J, B. POTTER,
ousu."—No doubt "Foley's diamond spec
tacles" are good articles; but if they wd
make "correct and fairly printed English'
of the Democrat's columns, they must be
marvels indeed. Suppose the editor of that
classiCal sheet tries, a pair on this sentence :
"Over work in business, with symptoms of
sickness, render a Anti period of rest neces
sary." Well, we should think it do. When
you have made "correct English" of that,
just take a loolz,at your column of fatherly
counsel to farnuirs.
Our agrieultuial friends are there assured
that "the cost of wintering cows last winter
was on an average as much as the cow could
be sold for in the spring." No farmer will
wonder at this when he'learns from the very
next morsel of "correct English" that "a
cow will usually eat about two tons of bay."
Goodness gracious! - Wsl have road seine
where that an elephant is generally satisfied
with about. four hundred pounds 15f bay; but
if a cow usually eats about two tons; it stands
to reason that "the cost of wintering cows
last winter"—not lust summer, mind youl—
was as much as a cow could bo sold for in
the spring, unless she was very valuable in
Tnere is a welt known poem which has
lung puzzled the commentators:
"There was au old man who said, How
Shalt] escape from this terlible cow?
will sit on this stile, •
Aud continuo to smilc,
And that may soften' the heart of this cow."
The question has id ways been, 4 What made
the cow co terrible to the old nian ? But the
riddle is read. The animal was one of the
cows we read about in the pcmocrat, that
"usually F a about two tonal of hay," and
the old gentle Man couldn't oven give her
away. No wonder he continued his, sickly,
sorrowful, senile
The Democrat lucidly remarks, "We be
lieve that the county is chiefly adopted to
stuck raising, and the manufacture of butter
and cheese, and when this opinion is assert
ed, we Ste told-that but few °limners make
this a speciality." This is too high for us;
we cannot attain unto it; and so we can't
tell whether "this opinion" that the county
is "adopted" is sound or not. But we hope
that even the few farmers who mike this
opinion a "speciality" will beWare of the
Democrat's breed of cows; "for the consor

however—that there are men who wish to be
respected, who claim to be rather better than
their neigh bbrs, who are very sanctimonious
and who, we think, sometimes thank God
they are better than other men, who yet
think it no sin to lie to a printer or publisher
of a newspaper, and think they are doing
God service in cheating such out of his hon
est dues. Verily this kind of honest piety
must be considered valuable!"

—The Corning Democrat says that the

nesday night, in a singular mariner. It was
standing on the' trestle-work, waiting fur or

struck it with considerable force, causing the
locomotive to 'start and the throttle of the
steam pipe to open suddenly. On sped the
engine at a fearful rate, defying efforts to
stop it on the part of the engineer, M. S.
Stratton, and ' went oil' the trestle into the

the end of the works.

himself by jumping. No one wits hurt.

—Here is an,item from the HOrnellsville
Herald that will interest lovers of the fra
grant weed : As A. B. Manhart was visit
ing his hay field accompanied by two gen

pipe, - and soon after observed the cushion
was on fire. He extinguished the fire, and

harnessed, and the bridle and reins thrown
on the seat. Shortly after this one of the
gentlemen saw smoke issuing from the cush

work in the field, half an hour later, smoke'
was seen rising from the location of the bug

—A. few days ago a little son.of Samifel
King, a farmer in the town of Osviego, was
killed by a scythe in the hands of his fathiir.
Mr. King was mowing in a meadow wit'' a
scythe, and while he was so at work, his lit
tle son, aged five years, came running out to
him. Mr. King told the lad it was not safel
for him to be there, and to go back to the'
house. The little fellow started, but it ap-'
pears that instead of going home, he laid
down in some tall gra4 and fell asleep.
Subsequently Mr. King went to mow around
a stump, and not seeing the boy thrust the
point of the scythe into his face below the
eye, cutting through the nose and producin:
a horrible wound. Mr. K. pulled thescythe
out with.his own bands, but the child died
within a few moments. Mr. King's grief at
the lamented accident is beyond human pow

A. R. Horne, of the Keystone State Normal
School, says in different parts of Eastern
Pennsylvania both women and men are en
gaged in manufacturing cigars. He made it
a point of inquiry, recently, to ascertain how
those engaged in this business made it pay,
and has obtained the following information :
Women, as a rule, work faster but not as
well as men. Thus, in one case, he heard
that a man and his wife were both engaged
in cigar making. The wife made one thou
sand cigars while the husband made only six
hundred, but the husband received as much
for his six hundred as his wife for her thou
sand, from the fact that his were made more
neatly. The comparative earnings of men
and women are thus about alike. An active
hand can realize from $l6 to $lB per week.
Teachers, on an average, realize about $BO
a month and "board round," and it appears
that, financially considered, cigar making is
nearly as profitable again as school teaching.
Besides, to become a good teacher requires
three or four years of active mental toil as a
preliminary consideration, while the myste
ry of rolling tobacco into the requisite form
can be mastered in about three months with
no partienlar outlay of intellectual forces.
Again, the mechanical employment has the
advantage of being permanent—the cigar
Making is busy the year round, while the
teacher,on the nverago,ms employed abouthal
the time. There is a problem for our social
economists to solve. Can our children be
properly educated, while labor with the
hands is so much more pecuniarily profitable
than brain work

SE °ARENDT —ln these days, when tight bats, of
sir, so sedentary occupations, cause the hair to fall
I out, It is a matter of no little importance to know
which of the hair, preparations are of any value, The
majority, as hal been frequently proved by the first
dermatologists, or hair.doctors, possess little or no
merit. Such being the fact, it is consoling to those.
I who are afflicted to know that there is really one good ar.
tick, which Gs, recommended and need by the first
medical authority, and baa stood every test, many
years. This preparation Is Nairn MUTABLE
SICILIAN HAIR RENEWER,--a truly acieutific com
pound, which is unquestionably the best preparation
of the kind now before the American public. It will
restore to gray hair its original color, cleanse the
head thoroughly, cure all the eruptions of the scalp;
and will always restore the hair so long as any germs
remain, as they almost invariably do, until extreme
old age-has destroyed the roots. The original article
