MR. GEORGE W. FYB, formerly a well
known citizen of Richland township, now
a successful merchant at Nickelsville, Ve
nango county, was in the city yesterday.
He was astonished at the fearful destruc

THE Altoona Tribune's correspondent
from Warriorsmark says : Mr. Walk and
wife, of Johnstown, are visiting Mrs.
Walk's aunt, Mrs. Harry Kinch.
Miss ELLA MCKEEVEK, of Johnstown, is
visiting Mr. A. C. Hutchison and family.
Miss McKeevcr escaped the flood and is
safe, in which her many friends rejoice.
THE new wagons now in use by the
Adams Express Company are improve
ments on the flood destroyed one. With
the additional assistance of Mr. McNiecc,
the efficient agent, the company is pre
pared to handle its greatly increased
business in town.
ONE of the largest buildings in course of
erection is on the corner of Locust and
Court streets, on the site of Scott Hibert's
house that went byway of the flood. We
understand it is to be used as a livery
stable and to be run by Scott and Super
intendent Duncan. From the size of the
strncture we judge it will be one of the
largest liveries ever in town.

THE re-opening of the saloons on Mon
day caused considerable hilarity in some
parts of the town towards evening. This
was to jbe expected after some days
of a forced abstinence, and especially on
the eve of so many of the workmen, and
some who are not included in that class,
leaving town. Our visitors felt like hav
ng a jolly good time. But as to the wide
spread drunkenness and disorder reported
to Judge Johnston in an appeal "to re
call " his latest order permitting the re
opening, we confess to have seen none of
it in or about the DEMOCRAT office, nor up
to 11 to'clock at night, when the writer
Walked out Franklin, up Main, and out on
Adam street to his lodging quarters.
THE Oaklahomas from Chicago, are
coming in now by the train loads. A
large lot of them was unloaded from the
B. & O. cars yesterday afternoon near the
brick depot. And now after examining
one of them, with its fine shingle roof,
that is put up near the old stand of
Stephen Quirk, we fail to see the justness
of the adverse criticisms bestowed upon
them. Judging from this one we do not
hesitate to say they are cosy and comfort
able, and much better than nme-tenth of
the board roof ones made out of rough
green lumber. Two of them joined to
gether give ample room for the comfort
able accommodation of any ordinary
sized family. Under the circumstances
they will be a boon to scores of families.
W HERE HAS THE MONEY GONE.
If $1,500,000 have been spent in Johns
town us claimed by Governor Beaver, the
inquiry as to how spent is certainly a
pertinent one. We, in common with
other flood-sufferers, as well as all the
generous donors all over the country,
would like to know as we have a right to
know where it went. The sum is enor
mous and seemingly out of all proportions
to even the vast amount of work done,
and the relief thus far afforded.
There is a wide-spread suspicion that
too much of it has gone in the direction of
red-tape regulations, and " circumlocu
tion offices ?" Six thousand dollars is
said to have been the daily expense of the
Commissary Department, but even that
would aggregate less than one-fourth a
million. Say the amount paid for work
; has been ten thousand per day, that added
to the other would not make quite half of
the Governor's estimate. But why guess
it, an auditing committee to b appointed
hereafter will doubtless explain it all.
WOMAN has taken another forward step.
The theological Seminary at Hartford now
admits women as students on equal terms
with men, the object being .to fit them
for work as missionaries and in other
fields of.labor than the pulpit. As yet
there is a [prejudice against female
preachers, but it will tumble is time.
WlTrl*M are V|l]T CnHwiw,
FW Washington people know wht •
wolverine is. They know that Michigan
is called the Wolverine state and that
Michigan people aro called wolverine*.
But they have little or no idea why the
state was so named or what the nick
The state is named after an animal
that used to infest, and still frequents,
the dense woods in the northern purt of
the state, as well as It the woods of
northern Wisconsin and Canada. This
animal is the wolverine, or, as the vari<>-
ties of him found in northern European
countries are called, the glutton. They
are savage beasts, these woivings are,
and they play sad havoc with the cattle
of the Michigan farmers. They are like
a cross between a wolf and bear. The
tail and the temper resemble those of a
wolf, but in strength and size and savage
ness they much resemble a bear, a very
They are less clumsy than bears,
though, and they can climb trees. Many
a hunter has walked under a tree up in
Michigun without looking for a wolver
ine in the tree first, and the wolverine
dropped down on him from one of the
lower limbs, and before the next morn
ing had him eaten up, buckskin breeches
and all, even to the heels of his hunting
boots. They are ugly looking beasts,
the only pretty thing about them being
their tlushy tail, a foot or so long. Their
claws aro longer and sharper than bears',
and their teeth just as sharp.
Altogether the animal which Mr. Rush
fancies to start his zoological garden
witli is a very unpleasant sort of one to
see outside of a cage. They are so sav
age and so wary and suspicious that it is
almost impossible to catch them alive,
and so they don't have them in circuses
and zoological gardens, and most people
don't know what they are. They are so
savage that hunters don't care to hunt
them, and so the wolverine has things
about his own way where he lives.—
Am Advsature With Tlftn.
The Calcutta Englishman reports that
Mr. Oabbett, district engineer at Abu
Road, had a remarkable adventure with
tigers lately. Mr. Gabbett was traveling
by trolly between Abu Road and Roh
when one of the gatekeepers gave him
khabui' of n family of tigers in an ad
joining jungle. and Mr. Gabbett, accom
panied by his trolly men and the old gate
keeper, started at once for the scene of
operations. He had not long to wait
before throe fine tigers broke cover, and
he dropped the foremost dead with a
well directed shot. Ho then fired at the
next one; but, though the brute was
hard hit, he managed to make off to
wards a river bed in the vicinity. Mr.
Gabbett then bad a shot at the third,
and succeeded in wounding him badly;
but the animal beat a retreat into a cave
In the meantime the tiger which had
gone towards the river bed fell in with a
shepherd, whom he mauled rather badly.
Mr. Gabbett opened fire on stripes, who
was hit and rolled over; but charged,
and was hit twice again. Mr. Gabbett
was aiming another shot when his foot
slipped and he fell, and the infuriated
beast dealt him a blow on the head which
rendered him insensible. The old gate
keeper very pluckily attacked the tiger
with his sword, but only diverted the
fury of the animal to himself. The
brute felled him to the ground with a
stroke of his paw; and then returned to
Mr. Gabbett. This diversion saved that
gentleman's life, for the tiger only suc
ceeded in clawing him slightly and then
fell dead. A fourth tiger also appeared
on the scene, but did not molest any

Lieut. J. W. Gardner, of the United
States naval engineer corps, has pre
sented the Worcester Natural History
Society with about a dozen curious look
ing objects, which were taken from Per
uvian mummies. These objects are hem
ispherical, and in shape resemble tiio
lens of an eye, But they are hard, and
take a fine polish.
Lieut. Gardner, who at present resides
in this city, has been in the service for a
long time, and was off the coast of Peru
duriug the great earthquake and tidal
wave of 1850. Several meft-of-war were
cast on shore and wrecked. His vessel,
however, escaped injury. The news soon
reached them that two United States
vessels were ashore at Africa, and the
vessel was headed for that point under a
full head of steam. Near where the
vessels were stranded the naval officers
found numbers of bodies wrapped up
like mummies, and thoroughly desiccated.
The great tidal wave had torn away the
earth which had covered them for cen
turies, and washed them out of their
time-honored resting place. In the hol
low orbits of their eyes and covered by
their wrappings, these so-called "eyes"
were found. As yet no one has been
able to discover their true nature.—Wor

Dr. Billing, bishop of Bedford, tells an
amusing story about an East End church
collection. It appears that the bishop
had been preaching to a very poor con
gregation, and that when the plate was
handed round, moved with compassion,
he contributed a sovereign to it. While
disrobing in the vestry, he inquired of
one of the churchwardens what sort of a
collection there had been. "Better than
usual, thanks to your lordship " was the
reply; "we have got several silver coins
and a qunntity of copper. There is a
sovereign also, but that of course is a
The bishop hold his peace, but must
have felt slightly chagrined at the mis
carriage of his liberality. Later he ven
tured to inquire of the other churchwar
den what the collection had amounted
to. "Seventeen and eightpence half
penny—much better than usual," was
the auswer cheerfully given. The pre
late does not divulgo whether or no he
pocketed his modesty, and confessed
that some acquaintance with the golden
coin enabled him to vouch for its gen
uineness.—Pall Mall Gazette.
Photography by Heat.
It may bo said that photographs can
tie taken by heat as well as by light.
The action of the shorter waves of energy
which we call light is quicker and sooner
manifest to the eye than the action of
the longer waves which we call heat; but
