a bear story. I ear : Sonit. ( . 1011 or
ten years ago I\ll., (ale of
the, most successful ai.d x pet ieneed
hunters,in this section, set a trap tor
bear which bud been seen near Nor
throp Hollow,.on the Schrader Branch.
Bruin put his font-in the trap, and in
the morning wlien Mr. S. weist, to look
for him he ofily found about one bait of
one of his paws, which the animal nit
doulitably thought it better to lose than
to run the risk of falling rtdo the hands
of his human enemy. Tracks of the
maimed bear have been seen every
summer since, but every Olen to cap
turn it proved unavailing. During the
past few weeks, however, Mr. Scott ten
again made the•
.altmnpt to • rid the
neighborhood of Mr. Bruin, and the
other day Qucceeded in killing him by
a ball from his trusty rifle. On exami
nation it. proved to -be the veritable
bear which he bad .entrapped nine
years before, as that part of the paw
corresponding to the piece found in the
trap was missing.
ELEGANCE AND H0m13. 7 4 never saw
a garment too fine for man or maid ;
there was never a chair to good for a
cobbler or cooper or king too sit in ;
never a house too fine to shelter the
human head. These elemen ts above us,
the gorgeous sky, the imperial sun, are
not too good for the human race. Ele
gance. fits man'. But do we not valu'P
these tools of housekeeping a little more:
than they are worth, and some i times
mortgage a home for the sake of the ma
hogany we would bring into it? I had
rather eat my dinner off the head of a
barrel, or dress after the fashion of
John the Baptist in the wilderness; or
sit on the rock all my life, than consume
all myself before ,I got to a home, and
- _take so much pains with the qutside
that the inside was as hollow L as an
eri3pty . nut. Beauty is a great thing,
but beauty of garments, housp and
furniture, is a very tawdry oroament
compared with domestic love. All the
elegance in the world will not make a
home, and I would give wore' for a
'spoonful of real hearty love than for

Mr. Cobh. Hence it is notstrange that
a people ; so long accustomed to receive
instruction from such a tutor, particu
larly throughout the long, full, event
ful years which have crowded a cen=
tury within the scope of the AGITA-
I'OR'S life, should become exacting up
on the subject of :mental 'diet. How
well . the writer shall be able to satisfy
this demand, remains to be seen. Mean- .
time, he bespeaks the indulgence of our
Under his supervision, the AGITA
TOR, will not cease to agitate: Should
it do so, it would lose its identity, and
turn ;Is t back upon a record in the
progreistbf Right and - Reform, which
has made it what it is. It will not em
brace purely moral questions In its
creed of politics, but as there comes a
time in the progress of Sentiment, when
a Party may with Ei afety Identify it
self with such advancement, the writer
ti oncieves it to be the mission of a Party
9rgiln, as well as all others, to stimulate
snch progress. To this end it is hoped ?
and from its past history we have reas
on to expect, that the Republican Party
will still lead the van of the army of
Progress. So long as it remains true to
the principles upon which It was found
ed, and the 1npt_fr0m.,w))101 , 11...y.. , ......,_
we shall Tither for Its success, and hail
its victories as harbingers of yet grater
blebsings to man. •
But the' AGITAron has not been, nor
is it intended that it shall be, simply a
political organ. Politics are in the na
ture of pills—we only take them when
we Must—and we who live in these
times, well know that the doses are fre-.
guent as well as large. Therefore we
shall inOt anticipate political conflicts,
and shall endeavor at nil times, to keep
up a general interest in the paper. It
is our belief, that the chief mission of a
Country paper is local; and in further-.
!Ince• of this object, we feel that we
shall do most for the advancement of
the interests and welfare of our people.
Our County is fast developing . in Ag
ricultural and Mineral resources ; but
there is room for greater improvement.
We need to stimulate Capital ! , and by
so doing, to make a better market for
our farmers, to increase the value of
real estate, and hasten the time when
our people shall be better oil than they
ever have been. We have among us,
many independent livers, but they are
comparatively few, while the great
mass only nhake a living. By develop.;
ment of our resources only, can an equi
librium be made to approach, and the
pioneer toilers, and their descendents'
be remunerated:for their struggles and
hardships. In this development, We,
ourselves are Interested also, if that
were needed to impel us to favor it.—
We shall encourage all enterprises cal
culated to promote the interests or our
people, in whatever shape they may ap
pear. Here lwe can all meet upon a
common platform ; and while the AG
ITATOR will ever work fer. Republican
ascendency in Politics, in Indutsry we
shall know no party.
• NEW.—With our first issue in the
.I•ieW year, we present THE AGITATOR to
our patrons, with columns extended,
and under a new heading. It is plain,
but we think no less attractive 'on that
fotint. A general re-arrangement of
s has been made, obsolete matter
expunged, and other changes made
which we think add much to the ap
pearance of the paper. We shall strive
to make the Agitator worthy of the pat
ronage it has hitherto received, and
seek by every means within our power
to perpetuate its usefulness.

Legislature of Wyoming Territory pass

We heaitily agree with the following
recommendation by. the Doylestown
"If we. were to, advise a young man
tralqing himself for business life what
literary magazine or periodical he
should take, we should say Packard's
Monthly. And it is also a good thing
for young women. It is not a " story"
magazine, by any means, but •is filled
with papefs and essays bearing direct

Edwin M. Stanton, late Secretary of
War, died at Washington, on the 24th
of December 1869, 54 years of age.
The past year has thinned the ranks
of the great men of our Country, so
much, that it has been a subject of re
mark; and in no case, bas the loss fallen
so heavily upon' the whole country, as
in this. After long months and years
of disappointment and defeat, which
came upon us under the policy of con
ducting - a great war on friendly terms,
it was Edwin M. Stanton who mar
shalled our forces, and directed our en
ergies to victory, final and complete.—
NO man of them all, did more than he,
to establish the peace of 1865. Day and
night, he labored for his country with
out ceasing • and,
vat, ne roifti L d Ills health gone, his-con
stitution shattered, and his prospects of
life even, most uneertain. Then fol
lowed the shameful treachery of An
drew Johnson, and the conflict between
them for possession of the War Office—
Johnson claiming that ho had the right
to supersede Stanton without the con
sent of the Senate. Stanton surren
dered the Portfolio to Grant, under pro
test. What might have been the re
sult, had Stanton tamely submittedto
the dictation of this mad-man, in the
White House, no one can tell. In the
drunken harangues, "swinging round.
the cirele,n glimpses of monarchy had
been foreshadowed; and such is .the
nature of this Andrew Johnson, that it
may well he doubted If any thoughtful
country safe in'such
hands. No one ean have forgotten the
relief the Nation, felt when Stanton said
that Grant could be trusted. Then we
only knew Grant as the General who
never surrendered ; and it was whis
pered that he might join the Johnson
dy4asty. }tor true he then was, the
country soon learned. He surrendered
the War Office to Stanton, on the re:
fusal of the Senate to consent to his re
moval, and then came the bloodless
vigils of the only battle which we re
call, that "Ad Interim" Thomas ever
fought. He did not conguer, however,
and Stanton held the office till the Sen
ate slutified itself, by its acquittal of
Johnson on trial of the Artieles'of Im
peachment. Only his regard for the
friends of the country, induced Stan
ton to remain in office, after the close of

any neighborhood can be found where well known
cases of diseued lunge, which had baffled the efforts of
the most skillful and experienced doctors have been

convincing proofs of the superior curative proverties of
this preparation; and to them the authors point with
peculiar satisfaction. Whileit is moat powerful against
confirmed diseases, it is extremely gentle as a medicine
in infancy and youth, being quite harmless to•eyen the

This health-restorer accomplishes even more by pre

Colds or Coughs, or from other oansee, and thus pre
