Oanother new parly has Just been

men can form a new party. Tnere la
no law In the land against such pro
ceedings. It is reported In Virginia that the
Democratic leaders there are much
alarmed at the largo number of now,
people from the North' who have set
tled In the "boom towns." Most of
them are Republicans, and as the slate
gave Cleveland ouly 1,500 mp'orlty In
1883, It is feared that the now-couiers
may give the Republicans the stale
lu a Presidential year.
Tun 'St. Louis Glohe-Demoarat
expresses the opinion that "the
Republican party needs only two
things to make Its success in 1892
Ufctjiolutely certain, to wit: The
'election of Mills to the Speakership

Thoroisthe same dearth o fruit trees.
How rarely Is a farm well supplied
with npple, cherry, peach, plum, aud
pear trees, and yet it Is possible to have
them all, or at least such of thorn i
are adapted to theloca'lty, it a tritliug
outlay of money and time. Why
should not every farmer have a sma'l
garden plot devoted to the cultivation
of strawberries, raspberries, cuirau ,
gooseberries and blackberries? Many
farmers have not a single one of the
fruits nauied growing on their
premises. Flowers are considered a
nuisance, aud thus many farms, for
lack of such little attention aid
expense, are permitted to remain ex
posed and desolate looking, aneyesoie
to the passer-by, aud u positive dis
credit to their owners. Apart from
the comfort of having a good supply
of shade aud fruit trees, Is profit iu
the fruit they yield; not only protlt,
but health and positive enjoyment
In tho possession and plentiful uso of
fruit, whether for home consumption
or market. In n word, tho farmer
who neglects to plant fruit trees
aud cult' vato small fruits on his prem
ises, is one who has small regard either
for his own family's comforts. More
than that, he lo-iei sight of the fact
that a farm well stocked with tree of
the kind named, and with a well
filled small fruit garden, will always
command a better price when ofleitd
for sale than one devoid of them.

Tho Herald herewith publishes an in
teresting article, with ltfo-like Illustration,
of the famous Mountain Moadow Massacro
which was tho most outrageous and blojd
thirsty massacre over perpetratod upon our
benutiful land of tho freo.
In 1857 A colony of emigrants stinted
out across tbo sterilo plains for the distant
gold lands of California. They woro of
every croed, and many woraon and child
ren woro in tho party. At Mountain
Meadow, a short diftanco boyoud Cedar
City, Utah, they woro attackod, as they
thought, by a band of hostilo Indians.
Ttseir wagons wero quickly corralled us a
barricade for the protection of their
families and stock. Thus they held the
attacking party at . bay. Kvory heart
leaped with joy at Itlio thought that their
little party was strong enough to hold such
a formidable foe at bay. But, alas, they
discovered, when too lato, that they we.o
tbo far frou water, and the Indians had cut
ofT their only resource For four daye
they lay in their corral of death, under
coyer of thoir enemies' guns, not daring to
eond any one to tho spring, which was in
plain sight. On the fourth doy a fUg of
truce was raised by tho attacking party,
and envoys wero font by each party and a
settlement made tho emigrants wero to
give up their arms and Join the Mormon
No sooner were tholr arms delivered th n
John D. Loo, Mormon Elder, and in com
mand of tho attacking party, who were
mostly Mormons disguised as Indians, or
dered the men all to ono sldo, and delib
erately shot them down like dogs, tho
woraon and childron being taken captives.
The awful agony which ront tbo hearts of
mothers, wives, sisters and brothers can
bettor bo Imagined than described hero.
John D. Loo was captured and tried for
rourdor, convicted and bung for the awful
rolo ho played. Two years later, General
Carlton visllcdthe spot and burled tho
bleached bones of 120 noblo pioneer heroes
in ono gravo, raising a monument appro
priately inscribed to tbo same.
By visiting Tawnco Bill's Wild Wott
you will too an oxact reproduction of this
fearful tragody enacted by daring frontier
horses, Indian fighters, bravo scouts and
genuine Sioux Indians, with all tho acces
sories of savago life tholr war clubs nnd
war instruments, their same war garmonts
and grolssquo painting as whenjthoy were
enacting those tragedies in real life. It
will convey to tho mind of tho spectator a
moro vivid and lasting impression of tho
hardships, dangers and endurance suffered
In the early settlement of our vast Wild
West than could bo learnod in reading all
tho literature over written on tho subject.

mirers of the band, some in carriages,
others on horse-back and "a great many
who wore not fortunate enough to got a
rido went over on foot. Such a proco.slon
novor left town before. Comparatively
speaking, Birnura's circus parade was not
"a marker to it." Tno object of this
massive gathering was to givo an open-air
concert for tho benefit of our valloyitcs. J
Arriving at Ulngtown tho band was not

attendance hours bofora the band nrrivod.
Each number on the programme was
hearti'y applauded. Kspocially "The
German Song," by Prof, Zeitz; "Tann-hauese.-,"
by Wagner, and "Tho Russian
Carriage Song," which rccoived throe
encor -. Notwithstanding the fact that
the concert lasted two hours numerous re
quests were handed in for various selec
tions that had been played horctofoie.
Aniongtheai worotho "Postillion Wal'zes"
and tho "Battle of Gettysburg."
Tho concert set the people wild with en
thusiasm and tho members o,r tho band
woro almost carriod upon their shoulders
into the Mansion Uouie, where Mrs. Hart,
the hostess, had an excellont supper in
readiness. Tho boys enjoyed theinselvcf
hugely and the people of Kingtown pm
nounced the concert tho evont of tho sea
son. One farmer who had an our for music
gavo vent to this: "By jimmlny I Did
you ever hear such moosio? Dey talk
iboud do Pottsvillo band brigade. De
Grant are do poys, I dell you,' and doand
you forgot it."

New York, Juno 18. Jero Dunn, tho
referro in the glove fight between Frank
P. Slavln and Jako KUrnln in Hoboken
has mada known his oulclul decision. He
'decides tbnt Slavln won tho bout and
was ontltUd to 7a par cent of the $10,000
purse, but that all bets that Ktlrain
would be knocked out within tho ten
rounds were off.
New York sporting men look upon
the decision as Inconsistent. They
claim that a ten-round contest must
bo concluded unless one man Is knocked
otit, or injured so that bo must stop,
and that only an event of either charac
ter can end a contest of a limited num
ber of rounds.
It was learned to-day that tho purse
was about $2,000 short, but tho Granite
