In the early morning of June 8th, the
state constabulary, the mine officials
and strike breakers under the direction
of the J. & ©. Coal and Iron Co. at Er-
nest, which is a branch of the Rochester
andPittsburg Coal & Iron Co., murder-
ously fired upon a body of citizens
numbering about one hundred, lead by
a brass band composed largely of bdys,
the youngest being 13 years of age, and
shot six of the men in the parade, one
of whom, Nicholas Macher, died within
a short time. Five others were
wounded, Macher, and the others seri-
ously wounded all being shot in the
The verdict of the corner’s jury sit-
ting on the body of Nicola Macher in
the borough of Indiana, Indiana
county, on June 14, 1906, is as follows:
“We find that Mr. Nicola Macher
died from a gun shot wound received
while marching through the villiage of
Ernest, in the parade headed by a brass
band on the morning of Friday, June
8th, 1906, that the said Nicola Macher
with the others in the parade was an
orderly, sober body of men maching on
the highway; that the shooting was
done by sheriff’s deputies, police offic-
ials or officers of the coal company;
that owing to the insufficient evidence
jury cannot determine who fired the
shot that caused the death of Nicola
THE Blossburg advertiser says: A
Chicago man, after 21 years of silence,
has just recovered his power of speech.
Evidently he read the beef report and it
made it him so mad he had to say
IT must require considerable nerve
for a corporation that gives all of its job
printing to a job office and then asks
the newspaper office to print and ciru-
late, at its own expense that which
will enlighten the public on its business
and advertise it as well. Why not get
a circular at the job office and post on
the trees. Newspaper men should
waken up to this sort of imposition. If
a newspaper office is good enough to
give publicity to a business, it ought to
be good enough for a return of court-
esy.—Clearfield Raftsmen’s Journal.
A LITTLE story has been going the
rounds of the newspapers for the past
few days, saying that some coal com-
panies are going to introduce cats in
the mines with the hope that their
presence will prevent the ravages of
the mine rats. It is undoubtedly true
that the mine rats destroy considerable
around the stables underground, not
only in the feed line, but they cut and
chew harness and make the mules rest-
less during the night. Several cats
around a stable at night might have a
tendency to frighten the rodents away
causing less destruction and less ex-
pense to the coal companies.
Valuation for Road Tax.
A letter has been sent out by State
Highway Commissioner Hunter to the
county commissioners throughout the
state, calling their attention to the
provisions of the new road law, which
to furnish the supervisors of each
township, on the first Monday of
March, with the latest valuation of the
township property for county purposes.
It is on this valuation that the super-
visors are authorized to levy the road
tax for the ensuing year.

With every gallon of Patton Sun Proof

on the train himself.
W. J. Brolley, prosecutor in the case
and a son of the man alleged to have
been murdered, followed “Mr. Seltzer
on the stand, He said his father was
68 years old at the time of his death,
and had always been healthy and of a
rugged constitution, He testified as to
his father’s condition during the time
the sick man was at his house before
being taken to the hospital. He de-
scribed a number of encounters he had
with the defendant calculated to make
him believe his father had been foully
dealt with.
Mrs. James Brolley, the estranged
wife of the dead man, testified as to
her husband’s habits and health.
John Brolley was the best witness
that could have been produced for
himself. For two and one-half hours
the old gray haired man sat in the wit-
neds chair with a sturdiness that for-
bade confusion. The commonwealth
made every effort to get the old man
tangled in the straigthforward story he
had related of the feeling existing be-
tween himself and his brother; their
relations, their agreements and their
disputes, without varying in the least
“Jim an’ me was not on very good
terms,” be said, ‘but we never made
our business the business of other peo-
ple. We kept our difficulties to our-
selves. We did not speak together for
over a year before his death, but I had
nothin’ agin Jim. He knocked me
down once, but I walked away from
him. I didn’t want to get in no quar-
rel with him. I just wanted to keep
away from him, that’s all.
It was shown that Brolley purchased
the box of “rough on rats’ after the
death of his brother.
Several witnesses were heard for the
defense, whose evidence was very
much in favor of the prisoner and
aided materially in the finding of the
Attorney Rose submitted the case
without argument, relying, as he said,
upon the court’s charge to the jury.
The court’s charge to the jury was
concluded at 5:26 o'clock Saturday
afternoon. The evidence in the case
was reviewed briefly and the statutes
governing the crime of murder were
explained to the jury. Before the
clock in the big tour had clanged the
hour of six the jury filed in and polled.
The verdict was anticipated. “We find
the defendant not guilty.” John Brol-
ley smiled again as he did during his
arraignment for trial. There was
nothing of triumph in his manner.
But there was an expression of serenity
on his wrinkled countenance that
seemed to belong there to one of his
Leon Roosules, the man accused of
having murdered a fellow countryman
at Hastings February 2 of this year,
and who was allowed to plead guilty to
murder in the second degree, was Sat-
urday night sentenced to spend 13
years in the Western penitentiary.

A traveler in the west, the Rev. C. T
Brady, says that of all the manifesta
tions of power he ever witnessed, from
an earthquake down, a cyclone is the
most appalling. The midnight black-
ness of the funnel, the lightning dart.
tng from it in inconceivable fierceness,
the strange crackling sound from its
bosom, the suddenness of its irresisti-
ble attack, its incredibly swift motion,
its wild leaping and bounding, like a
gigantic beast of prey, the awful roa:
which follows, all this but feebly char-
acterizes that strange ravager of the
plains. He continues:
The cyclone plays odd pranks. 1
have seen two horses lifted in air and
carefully deposited, unharmed, in a
field about an eighth of a mile away.
I have seen chickens and geese picked
clean of feathers and yet feebly alive.
One house, 1 remember, had a hole
ten feet in diameter cut out of its roof,
as if by a circular saw. I have seen
the black, whirling cloud lift a build-
;| ing and shake it to pieces, as one
ghakes a pepper box. One of the
worst cyclones 1 ever knew threw a
heavy iron safe about as a child might
toss a wooden alphabet block in play.
It is an irresponsible as well as an
almost omnipotent monster, and it
seems to love the hideous jokes of ita
own concocting.
Curious Mexican Laws,
They have some very curious crimi-
nal laws in Mexico. For instance, it 1s
twice as much’ of an offense to muts-
late the face of a woman as that of a
man. The law seems to be based on
the idea that a woman’s best posses:
gion is her beauty and that to mar it
does her a great Injury.
There is another curious law. If a
person should be wounded in an es-
eounter, the punishment to the offend
er is fixed by the number of days his
victim has to stay in the hospital or
under a doctor’s care. A line is fixed
at 40 days in the way of a general divi-
glon. If the injured man occupies more
than 40 days in his recovery, the pen-
alty doubles up.
An Impudent Fraud,
An impudent fraud was perpetrated
upon a Manchester bank by one of its
eustomers, who opened an account
with some few hundreds of pounds.
The man, after a tew weeks, drew two
checks, each within a pound or so of
his balance, and, selecting a busy day,
presented himself at one end of the
pounter, while an accomplice, when he
saw that his friend’s check had been
cashed, immediately presented his own
to a cashier at the other end. Both
cashiers referred the checks to the
ledger clerk, who, thinking the same
cashier had asked him twice, said
“right” to both checks. The thieves
were never eaught
How to Give a Cat Medicine.
A New York gentleman has a very
fine Angora cat, and so fine a specimen
of her kind that she is famous in a
large circle of fashionable folk. She is
not rugged in health, yet she cannot be
persuaded to take physic. It has been
put in her nfilk, it has been mixed with
her meat, it has even been rudely and
violently rubbed in her mouth, but nev-
er has she been deluded or forced into
swallowing any of it. Last week a
green Irish girl appeared among the
household servants. She heard about
the failure to treat the cat. ‘‘Sure,”
said she, “give me the medicine and
some lard, and I'll warrant she'll be
ating all 1 give her!” She mixed the
powder and the grease and smeared it
on the cat’s sides. Pussy at once licked
both sides clean and swallowed all the
physic. “Faith,” said the servant girl,
“everybody in Ireland does know how
tn give medicine tn a nat)”
