We have been patiently, tbongb

think it about time to apply tho lan
cet Tbey have, to all intents and
purposes, settled on the election of
a democratic prothonotary and cleik
of courts in Soydor coonty. It is
not a ba J idea to centre their forces
on this one point which tbey seem
ao rery anxioos to carry, and it is
well worth their efforts, as it is not
only the most influential office poliU
ically, but a!jo the best paying one
in tbo gift of the pooplo of the
It is not a little amnsing.howovor,
to read the plaintivo wails and tbo
child like pahver nsn1 against the
republican candidate. Tbey call biai
a man ' whoso riches are on every
side &.a " Do tbey consider it a dis
grace to bo wealthy ? If so why
was the present democratic candi
date nominated only after the posi
tive refusal cf one of the. strongest
and AtaHhiest msn in tho democrat
io party in this coonty ? Agiin, tbo
wail : "Why support him who did
not fight violently in battla array!"
This embodies bvl rramtsa? an t
VVOrso soniimont." If the writer of
this wish-wash is so anxious to elect
the soldier dement, how docs it
come that his party went in body
and son! to effect tbo defoat of oue
of tbo most worthy soldier's Snyder
county over produced, giving the
Beat of associate judge of this coun
ty, to a man who nover 6 molt pow
der f Besides our man was ouly
eleven years old when our country
called its mon to arms.
Far bo it from ua to say ono dis
rospectful word of the democratic
candidate for prothonotary. Ho
was a soldier and was woundod. Our
country recognized bis services and for tho ministry ; and, being in ia
pensioned him. He is a democrat !Ji'rttlt circumstauces, asked tuo aid
and holds tbe office of pont-mastcr'0' lLe cLurch io tho Prf"tion f'f
in his town. Our man bud the ben
fits of tho post-oflico in this placo
and lost it because ho was a repub
lican. Wo could not all be soldiors,
but we all strive to got rich,
Mr. Wittonmyer brt9 as clean a
personal aud political rocord as any
man in the county nono excepted.
Ila has been oue of our most consis
tent republicans, never shirked duty
and when weighed was never found
wauting. If tho demooratio party
can Bay tbe snmo of tboir man, tbey
can certainly be proud of him, but
it is neither manly or honorable to
plsy the baby by pleading poverty,
and ws do not believe him the kind
if a man to desire Bach an issue.
We therefore call upon tbe repub
lican voters of Soyder eonnty to be
on their guard. Tbe intent of the
deraoeratio party of Snyder county
ia to elect their prothonotary at all
baxards, and if it can be done by
trading and bickering they will do

It is natural that tbo Pennsylva
nia Democrats should try to tow
dissent ion In t ho 'ranks of tlio Hi
publicm. tliU fill sinco tint is I heir
only clmnco of of succors. At 8 mo
former opnch Ihcj would not buvo
dreamed of v'ctory in a state which
gave a Republican majority of uighty
tbousnud only n your n;jo, Lot
now changes nre great and sudden
and they do not despair. Tbo vote
will be light, nnd this in itself in
highly favorable to them. If they
cun divide the Republicans, they
thluk, not nnnnturally, that tuoy
may possibly win. It was by such
means that they succeeded in elect
ing Governor I'ntlison.
Uij for Innately fr their plans the
situation is thoroughly uudorstood
by the Republic tn. N question
of principlo is involved in tbo cue
of the funds of the State. If their
custodisn is honest and onderstaudi
bin btmiuoas be will attend to it with
ont regard to political preference.
The Republican party cannot be
"regonorited," or "'lifted to a higher
plane," or improved in any of tbo
ways of which so much iff heard,
by electing a Democrat to the impor
tant but non -political office which
forma tbo solo bone of contention
(Ionoo thoro is no logical ground
for the support of any independent
movement, except as a nakod pieoo
of assistance to the Democratic or
ganization. A few of Mr, Day's Philadelphia
friends tnav oniov such a move
L,ent all to tbemsnlves. but thev
saving nothing about it. It is true
that such a modest prooooding
would not advertiso their business
establishments, not bring their
names iutopriut, au 1 therefore they
may show commercial wisdom by
making as much noise as possible.
Outside of their own town their
measure is takon and they are not
splitting any ears but their own.
The Lutheran Synod of Contral
Ponusylvauia met at Rebersburg,
Centre conuty, September 30, and
continued uutil October 1 Hut. 3.
K. Miller, of Sugar Valley, was
chosen Prosidont, Rev. C. L. Mo
Conuell, of Teagertown, Secretary,
and Hev. V. II. Diven, reelected
Treasurer. A summary of the pro
ceedings indicate a good degreo of
progress in the churches The con
tributions to benevolence were
$1,290, showing an increase per
member of 2 J por cent. The in
crease of membership nag abont 300.
The Synod received seven ministors
from otber Syuodu. Mr. Romig, a
student of theology at .So'insgrovo,
after passiug a very creditable ex
amination, waa licensed to preach
. The "'onion's Homo and Foreign
Missionary society of tho Synod ro
ported twenty auxiliary s- c etios,
five of which were organized during
the past year ; ulao that the society
contributed j30 toward the buuov-
olent operations of tbo church.
The Orphans' Homo at I.oysville,
Terry county, showed an encourag

ing a good work in caring for the

A woman in Syracuse, ambitions
to show how long sbo could live
without eating, stuck to it until Bbe
died and conferred upon tbo world
tbo wonderful kuowlodgo that it
took fifty-nine days to starvo to
death. Just how much tbe knowl
odgo is going to benefit tho world,
or bow tbe interests of soionoo, or
good morals, does not yet appear,
and probably will not, untill tbo
oranks who are to hold au inquest
over her remains and publish un
meaning theses on what tbey find,
havo finished their work. If only tbe
fools who try such experiments wero
not supplemented by so toauy other
fools to make reports about their
folly, there would be fewer such exs
bibitipae. There is no immediate
probability of tbe fool-killer's mis
sion being elosod just yet.

that a good deal of sympathy is

received such a sentonce in contral

such a disagreeable man. It was
unfortunate, uo doubt, that her hns

for vtastiug much sympathy on her;

to make it notable. Mrs. Druse,
