It is said that the Keatinir Wheel Co., Middletown, Conn., desire a good agent in Middleburgh. As the Keating is known the world over as one of the finest and easiest running wheels made, it would seem as though some of our business men might open correspondence with the Keating people to good advantage. The wheel is a ready seller. 3-18-4t. Victor H.

The Commissioners have made the rate of tax for aouuty purposes at 3 mills which will make a total tax of about $14,500. The total valuation last year was tl.847.354. The aver age valuation last year for horses was $27 each: cows. $15. It has beeu deoided that the assessors shall assess horses so that tbe average shall be $22.50; cows, $17.25. This action of the commissioners was due to the fact that the average last year varied from $39 to $18 iu the aver ages of the valuation of horses from different districts. Conductor Wolfkiel's Narrow Escape. Andy Wolfkiol, the votoran aud ef ficient conductor ou S. & L. mail. made a narrow escape from serious injury if not doath, near Beaver town, last Wednesday afternoon. Andy's train bad run onto the Biding to allow a double- heador to nats. and wbilo standing ou the lower steps of the smoking car an individ ual who bad been induluioir excess ively in strong dring staggered out of the car and down the storw. bumping Mr. Wolfkiol with such force as to almost knock him off the car against tho fust-running freight. Fortunately he succeeded in srrasp. ing the guard railing and thus sav ing himself from what might have been sure death. It is unnecessary to state that Mr. W. hustled the in ebriate back in to tbe car with more speed than he had emerged from it. Lewistown Free Press. Good Suggestions. People shouldn't growl because a newspaper fails to have every scrap of news so long as you take no trou ble to give the information. We have heard of readers who have been awfully put out because no note is made of the arrival or de parture of friends visiting them, or of social affairs of Heaven sent babies that visit their home during the night. The average newspaper man isn't medium nor a mind read er, but must depend upon those who have a scrap of information to give to ha,Ridpway Star. Silver is down very near the lowest point which it ever touohed, whilo heat is at a high level, and is likely to go higher. Nobody hears the par rot talk now of silver and wheat be ing yoked together, but this is be cause tbe silver issue is dead, tem porarily or eternally. If the issue should be resuscitated in 1900 the follies and falsehoods of 1896 would be repeated. , AN ELOPEMENT. Himiabara- Lovers Nklp Oat fer Parle I'aknewu. Lewlsbanr News. . The Mifflinburg Telegraph gives tnefollowiug accouut of a seusa tional elorement that has sot all Milllinburg to talking: "Wm. E. Wise and Mrs. Benjamin Hackenburg, both of this place, left for parts unknown on th traiu east on Tuomlnv 1 auk Tha former deserts a feeble wife with three childreu, tbe eldest not over 11 years, and the latter a husbaud and. the same number of children. We have been informed that each left written messages to the effect that they would prefer doath to capture. We might fill a column with the gossip afloat concerning them, but the above tells the whole story. Mr. Hackenburg is a fine young man and industrious ; and Mr. Wise iH a true lady and mother." This (Friday) morning Mr. A. D. Miller, father of Mrs. Wise, called at the Jfeics office on business. He in formed us that he had just returned from Danville where he had taken bis daughter for treatment. Soon after her husband bad deserted her she became despondent, followed by violent outbreaks until it bm clear to her physician that she had. temporarly at least, lost her reason, and for her own oomfort and safety was taken to the Danville Hospital. Tbe whole affair is most unfortu nate, involving aa it does the family names of some of tbe most highly esteemed people in aud near Milfiin burg. Mr. Miller said that Wise had made love to his daughter when she was a girl of seventeen attend ing his school in West Buffalo Town ship. He objected to the marriage at first, but W'so pressed his suit, professing the deepest affection for her. In an evil moment the father yielded to the entreaties of the young lovers and they were married. All went well until the husband be came enamored of Mrs. Hacken berg. His love was passionate, in fact her charms seemed to hypno tize him, and that he might more frooly devote himself to her, the elopement was planned and con su mated. We predict, however, that the "novelty" and romance of this sort of a mix-up will be very quickly dissipated, and then the re morse, the hell of a condemned and guilt conscience I There will be two very mournful and penitent eloping sinners coming back to Mif flinburg in a few months seeking sheltor aud reconciliation. Ed. Postmasters to Hold Four Years. Washington, March 15. Postmaster-General Gary made the defi uito aunouncoment to-day that tbe administration, after duo delibera tion, has decided to adhere to the four-year tenure of office, policy for all postmasters. He stated that ex cept in a few cases where removal for cause was required on account of delinquency, incompetency, or other instances of unsatisfactory conduct or administration of the of fice all postmasters, fourth-class as well as those of Presidential ap pointment, would be allowed to serve out a term of four years. This officiul statement of policy, one of the most imuortant so far determin ed upon by the administration, has beeu awaited with great interest by the entire corps of postmasters, and by the patrons of 70,675 postoffices throughout the country. Something to Consider. You are weak, sick, out of health. You have tried local doctors. Did you ever stop to think that it is the great specialists in your disease who can cure you, tne pnysician who can cure you, the physician who treats and cures thousands of cases like yours t Dr. Greene, 35 West 14th St., New York City, is the most successful of all specialists and has the largest practice in the world. You can consult him free. Write to him without deWand he will ex plain by letter your case fully. This will cost you nothing and doubtless lead to your cure. . BOODLE VICTORY. The Trinmph or Promises. Whislcey and Boodle of no Significance. Beavertown, Pa., March 22, 1897. Eo. Post By a letter from Middle burgh published iu lust week's issue of the Weekly Herald I learn that some of our political friends are still groping alone in tho dark. By statiug that the "Corabiuo is dead" by the rejection of a few and the oloction of another as chairman of the Republicau Standing Com uiitteo of the Couuty of Suydor don not in thj leist substantiate the idea that there existed a "Combine," much loss that it bus been killed. I wish to state, however, that there existed a oombino some time ago who had tho recognition by State leaders as loaders of this coun ty in politics when they never were able to seoure the majority ballot at a single election. This combine died a natural death. It died at the voice of the general population of Snyder county, but it is still trying to sur vivo defeat as does the rooster when deprived of its head. The combine met its fate by tbe exeoution of true and honest convictions of right of at least a majority of voters as you all know ; and when the majority of a common people give their decision a free and unrestricted ballot, they cannot be called a combine. A com bine is just what Mr. Middleburgh wishes to lift out of the mire and hold up to us as Moses did tbe smtke in tbe wilderness. O no. we saw it beforo it went into the mud. It is true we have our leaders in the dif ferent departments and they aren't little boys either as he tries to inti mate. They have not bought us much less sold us. They are men ' Wiio are neither very likely to bo tray us, but if they do ; woe be upon their heads politically. I think they are doing as woll or hotter thau any other mou in Snydor county could ; at least we thought so when we vot ed. We have also elected candidates heretofore wbo paid their canvass ing expenses out of their own pock ets with their own silver and gold, and we can do so hereafter. I do not think that the right mau in the right place nood havo a large amount of monoy from higher sour ces outside of tho county to spuud lavishly to be successful. History does not justify that fact. As for tbe cry "Tho Combine is doad ;" they havo let tho cat out of the bag aud we aro very glad of it. We know just exactly who belong to their gung and thero uru no excuses acceptod from men who cry "no gung." Mon don't staud alone in these days. I am not going to be couio specific in mentioning iiumes. You all know. I pity the man who thinks that tho rising generation should be kept in tho dark and old worn out men romain in ofiico until they sail safoly into tho celestial worlds, and thon give our govern meut into tho hands of tbo iuex perienced boy. And furthermore he is badly fooled if he thinks that we are boys. Wo are young, middle aged and old mon. We huve iu this common populnco, which the man from tbe centre calls ulcombino, men whom wo measure intellectually, morally and politically with any mau in his rotten combine. Those men will meet with the same fate, under the auspices they are marching, as they met with heretofore. Our motto and issue will be "No Combine." "No Cor- poration." You understand T And we don't care either what the Committee does on this point, as it is very often of late composed of men whose names are smuggled on the ticket and are in no wise a prop er choice.
