PROSPECTUS. —"Of making many books
there is no end," and the multiplication of
newspapers is the popular source of educat
ing the people. We are aware that the idea
is quite preyelent that Bradford County has
too many papers, hut with the large number
not one is wholy devoted to the interest of
the great producing class—the agricultur
ists—and at the urgent solicitation of some of
the host practical farmers in the county, we
have decided to commence about the first of
the new year, a local agricultural weekly,
especially adapted to the wants of the farmers
of this section. The contributors to the
paper will embrace Hie best practical farmers
in the county, and we shall aim to make it
of real value to every tiller of the soil, dairy-
Imau and stock raiser in the county, by giv
ing the results of experiments by those in
whom the classes interested have confidence,
and whose success in business is an evidence
fo thorough practical knowledge.
The paper will contain a condensation of
the general news and the fullest local notes.
Fuller particulars hereafter.

Mox ßOW— There was curried through this
village to-day, to their last resting place, Cole's
burial ground, the caathly remaizs of Mrs.
Lyman Dodge; formerly Mrs. Gilbert, moth
er of Nelson Gilbert, Esq.,of Franklin twp.,
at whose residence she endured her last sick
ness, and met her last enemy, being kindly
ministord unto and tenderly cared for by
those of her own household. Her earlier
years were spent in Monroe, while living
with her first husband Mr. Daniel Gilbert.
We have no exact dates at hand from which
to quote, but from our recollections we place
her age up in the nineties. Ilerjmaiden name
was Wythe, and we do not recollect a person
of her father's family living in the State, or
in the world. The great west may yet re-*
tain some fragments of the family of Wythe's
She was one of the pioneers of this valley,
and acted nobly her part, in the stirring
times of its early cultivation. We claim the
privilege of paying our full quantum of res
pect to all such prominent and worthv marks
of our earlier times as they pass away. For
many vears of the latter part of her life, she
was a devoted christian, and known to us as
a faithful member of the M. E. church. She
has passed safely home; unsolicited we drop
our little token on the foot of her grave.
Monroe's Sunday Schools in the M. E.
church, is preparing for a large time for tie
little folks, on Christmas eve. The children
have a clear title to one day in the year; and
it occurs usually about the2sth of December.
"He took them up in his arms and put his
hands upon them and blessed them." So mote
it be. The Christinas tree always wears a
charm. NOME DK PLUME.

HOW JURORS AUK MADE.— The Jury Com
missioners, V. M. WILSON and T. J. SMILY,
assisted by their clerk, E. B. COOLBAUGH,
are now engaged in placing the eight hun
dred names of persons to be drawn as jurors
during the year 1882 in the wheel. The m>-
dus operandi of securing jurors is not un
derstood by everyono. The Presiding Judge
every year orders so many names placed in
the wheel as in his judgment will suffice for
the courts to he held during the ensuing
The system of drawing these names is as
follows: When jurors are required in anv of
the courts the clerk of the court sends to the
sheriff an order directing him to draw a cer
tain number of jurors—this order is called a
venire. As soon as received by the sheriff it
is registered in a book kept for that purpose
and is sent to the clerk of the jury board,who
paepares bis book to receive the tequisite
number of names when they are drawn. At
a time when it is convenient for the jury
commission consisting of the sheriff and the
jury commissioners, the wheel is opened and
the names required by the venire are drawn
out seperatsly and duly recorded. The first
twenty-four names drawn at each term are
designated as "Grand Jurors." Aflerthe
drawing is concluded, the clerk sends to the
sherifi a duly certified list of the names so
drawn with the lesidence and occupation of
each iuror. This list is the sheriff's guide
and from it he makes out tin; notices for ju
rors. Jt becomes the duty of the officer
charged with the service of the notice to find
the juror, no matter where lie may be—
whether at the address given or at any other.
After proper effort has been made to find the
juror, the officer returns to the sheriff all the
notices he has been unable to serve and a
statement of those served, and the sheriff t hen
prepares his answer to the venire and affix
ing it thereto, returns it to Hit" court clerk,
who uses the list for his roll. It will be seen
from this statement that the system is a com
plete one ' and absolutely free from any
chance of fraud.
An idea is to a certain extent prevalent
that the sheriff lias the power to excuse ju
rors, hut tins is wholly erroneous, that pow
er being in the court alone. If jurors fail to
attend at the time named the court mav im
pose a fine and issue an attachment for the
I arrest of the iuror and his production in
! court. A great majority of the jurors sum
moned serve; some are excused. Deafness,
ignorance of our language, physical inability
to sit and other physical ailncnts are good ex
cuses. Physicians surgeons and apothecaries
are also excusable under a salute passed in
the reign of Henry VIII. (1513), and now in
force. Attorneys and other officers of the
court* exempt from service. Some lew oth
er persons are exempt, but to secure the
privilege must comply with certain stringent !
requirements of the law. Jurors are under
110 circumstances excused from service on
account of business engagements, the judg
es having taken a firm stand upon that point,
desiring the services in til* court of just tint
character of men. The pay of a juror is $2
