- On Saturday night our old friend,
Henry Eyer Gaugler, came near los-
iuir his little home by fire. He was
just in the act of reading his bible be
fore retiring for the night, when by
some means or other the lamp fell
to the floor, was broken and the oil
began to burn. Mr. S. 'P. Burns ar
rived on the scene and tried to smoth
er the flame with a pillow, while at
the same time Henry was causing the
oil to spread and burn more fiercely
by throwing on water.' Chauncey
A. Keeley passing that way, saw the
blaze and ran into the room and as
sisted to outen the fire by means of a
piece of carpet.-' Had this relief not
come to Henry's aid there is not much
doubt but that the house would luvc
burned down while he himself would
most likely have been seriously, it
not fatally, burned. Inbune. .; i
Fire at Northumberland.
The Northumberland correspond
ent to the Sunbury t?m Monday of
this week says :
Alxuit 4 o'chx-k Monday morning
a fire alarm was sounded by the
whistles ut VanAlleu's iron works
which aroused our people, when it
was found that a lire was burning in
Colt't store room, occupied by Harry
11. liarter as a general store. Ihe
tire company was quickly ut work
and played a steady stream on Un
building. The smoke was so dense
that it was iniMssillo to tell at
which part of the building the fire
was, so that the contents of the room
was saturated with water. The fire
was the result of a robU'ry. The
window iu the rear of the store had
Ix'cn ptied open and muslins, shoes
and other goods were found iu an ad
joining yard and in rear of lot and
it is thought the robbers carelessly
threw matches and fired the build
ing which frightened them away lx
forc they could carry away all of
the booty. The fire was first dis
covered by John E. ('oil, who gave
the alarm. The building is owned
by John T. Colt and with the loss
of shelving and counters the loss
will Ixialxml $700, fully insured.
The stock of Mr. Harlerwas insur
ed for $2000 which will cover his
loss. Mr. liarter will cx-ciipy the
room next to Fisher's Imrbcr shop
until the former room can Ik- repair
ed for his occupancy. The p.ompt
arrival of the Hire laddies is greatly
appreciated by the assured.
( );;r neighlxiring town of Milllin
biirg has an epidemic of typhoid
lever. There are from twelve to
fifteen cases and one death lias oc
curred a vouug woman named
Young. There arc aNo a great many
cases of the same disease in the
country around thetown. The epi
demic is a mystery. The water si-;
p!y ol the town is one of the best in
llie country and the sanitary condi
tion of the town is said to lie good.

confined to the towndispeislhc idea

In Vacation Time.
, Vacation is the season of . "eat,
sleep and read," the time when the
business man removes himself from
the caresof routineoflice, reads, turns
his attention to home comforts and
home, and makes un his mind that
he wants this or that; long before he
buys it, because he has then the time
in which toconsider it. The asser
tion can be safely made that one-half
