in getting Ex-Sheriff Kinesmith to go

' Body Found. A few days since, the
dead body of a man was found on the
farm owned by John Stewart, in Tyrone

a" colt belonging to Jonas Shull,
when starting from In front of the

hurry, while the pressure played smash
with the wheel, and placed the axle In a
.condition to need the services of a black
smith. Found Murdered. On Monday of last
week, Mr. Jos. T. Miller, residing near

.A Lively Rat Hunt. A few daj-9 since,
a gentleman residing In Wheatfleld twp.,
had some rather unexpected fun. lie
43tuight a rat in a box trap and in order
to kill It took the trap into the entry of
the house so that It could not get away.
A young man who happened to be pres
ent, went into the house to see the fun.
The rat when let loose naturally look
ed for some place of refuge and seeing
uo better one, took up the leg of the
voung man's pants, and now the fun
began. In earnest. That .young man
never before knew how much gymnastlo
exercise there was In him. He not only
danced but he Jumped and he shouted
"catch him,'' and then he convulsively
grabbed at the spot where the rat was,
but always was Just In time to miss him.
At last the rat reached the place usually
covered by the hip pocket,when by live
ly skirmishing he managed to grab him
and again he shouted, "don't you see
him V" " Can't you catch him V" "Now
get him 1" But the rat was too much
for them, and slipping from the grab of
the excited young man, It made a dive
down the other pant leg, and again the
dance began. ' ' ' - '
Again grab after grab was made for
the rat as It went from one side of the
leg to the other, amid the cry of " why
don't you catch him V" until just as It
reached the man's knee, he managed to
seize him. As he drew him forth he
gave a Blgh of relief and vowed If ever
he again became a rat hunter, he would
tie his pant legs shut at the bottom.
X. A Duncannon Man's Ride. " On Wed
nesday afternoon of last week, a sklfT
occupied by a single passenger, and
nearly filled with water, came along
shore. The man stepped out and the
water was balled out. It wasan ordinary
two oared skiff and the brave passenger
was Mr. Owen Ashton, of Duncaunon,
Mr. Ashton is a carpenter by, trade,
but for some time past was a fireman on
the Pennsylvania railroad. Having
been offered employment at his old
trade in Smedley's Columbia Agricul"
tural works, he accepted and prepared
to come. But he was at the same time
owner of a pretty little skiff, and he
wanted to bring it with him. Thinking
that the most natural way to get a skiff
down was by water, lie launched his
frail bark at 8:30, Wednesday morhing,
and started on his perilous journey, not
withstanding a high river and a high
wind the latter blowing at hurricane
speed. The skiff was carried along,
sometimes at a startling rate, by wind
and current, waves breaking over it, and
sometimes nearly filling It.
The most thrilling part of the trip
was the passage through Conewago falls,
which are nearly a mile long. The spray
was almost blinding, and drenched him
like' a June rain storm. After the
passage he was obliged to bail out his
boat. From there to Cilumbla the
Journey was devoid of special interept
or incldeufc-except the run through the
Chickies rapids. He arrived safely at
shore at Columbia,' tired and hungry,
about three o'clock in the afternoon,'
making tlie trip of nearly forty-five
miles in less then seven hours. It was
a perilous journey by a brave fellow
and it will always possess a lively
interest for him. Columbia Star.

Another Bank Failure. The Patriot of
4th Inst.; says: Dougherty Bros.' & Co.'s
banking house of Harrlsburg, closed yes
terday morning owing to the pressure on
the deposits and the general stringency
of the times. The firm says the disas
trous City bauk failure last fall was fol
lowed by a heavy demand on the Dough
erty bauk by depositors for their money
and the amount of deposits dwindled
from $317,000, at the time the City bank
failed, to $111,000 when business opera
tions were terminated. The closing up
of the State bank on Saturday was an
other severe blow to the institution, the
demands of depositors increasing after
that event. Last fall the bank was en
abled to surmount the temporary panic
by a loan of f 25,000 from Bernard
M'Grann, of Lancaster, who on Monday
had a judgment entered up against Wil
liam E. Dougherty for the amount loan
ed. This unexpected movement dispel
led all hope that had been entertained of
continuing the business, and it was
deemed advisable for all concerned to
close the affairs of the bank.
William E. Dougherty and James
Dougherty have made an assignment to
S. W. Simonton, Esq., of all their prop
erty for the benefit of those who have
suffered by the failure of the bank with
which they have for eight years been
connected. The main property consists
of four farms, comprising In the aggre
abotit 374 acres, located a few miles east
of this city. This real estate is estima
ted to be worth from $200 to $400 an
acre. They also own 400 acres of moun
tain land, and eight or ten houses In
this city, as well as a considerable quan
tity of ground in the lower end of Har
rlsburg. They also own a large amount
of Harrlsburg gas stock. The money
that will be realized from the sale of this
property, it is believed, will exceed the
liabilities of the bank.
When the bank closed there were de
posits on hand amounting to about $10,
000, which are being paid out at the rate
of ten per eent. to each depositor who
presents his claim. A considerable num.
her of depositors received this proportion
of their principal yesterday, and the
payments will be coulinucd until all the
money is exhausted. The collectable
claims held by the bank against persons
for loanuare estimated at $25,000.

Notes Concerning the Origin of our Poor

The flrot step in progress, was an act of Act
of ABscmhly passed March 24, A. D., 1810,wlien
Gov. Tho. McKean presided over this com
mon wealth and P. (J. Lane was speaker of

for this county then part of Cumberland. It
must be remembered that this countv i. t.
Bherman's Valley was entitled to the Poor
House while thu other side (. ., Cumberland
Valley had tho Court House and its appendages
for it seems there must always be a jail to a
Court house or a Court of Justice convenient
to a jail. This I suppose, is necessary to en
force the terrors of the law upon them that do
business about the middle of the woek during
our regular terms, but I am digressing, and
will return to tho poor House. Here we find
among the ancient archives that tho first
Hoard'or Directors consisted of Francis M&
Coweu, Clint Heckendoro and Joseph Watson,
who bought the present location for 85190 87.
and contracted with Robert Cree, at $11)00.00
for erection of the building, and with George
Lcihey for ca rpenter work for the same at
sis.i0.00 and with Tho. Bedding to do the clas
terlog of said house at JKoO.OO. Total cost
of building the first Foot House, $3,080.00.
This was burned down when the writer was a
boy in the year 18:)U, month of April, weather

ately rebuilt by Samuel Bberman, Esq., at
about $4000.00. Tho history of the third

It Is quito interesting to follow up the earlv his
tory of this institution as it enables us to see
what it then wa, and how it compares with the
management of the concern at this date, and
as there is just cause of complaint against
extravagance, and over charging for services
rendered by oillclals generally in those days,
and a sighiug for the good honest old tlmes,by
a great many fogies and others that aro not
