A few days since Mr. Samuel Comp.
Ml, residing near Mil ford, t;ut his foot
-severely while chopping In the woods.
As we go to press, Court Is still In
Session, u case wing on trial 'that was
not finished on Saturday.
C. A. C. The story yon send for pub
lication was published In The Timks
about three years ago.
The latest theory advanced In the
Lebanon county tragedy case Is that the
'late Joseph T. Miller, of Lebanon coun
ty, was murdered at Ids home and the
body conveyed to the place where found
in a wagon. -
A body of a man was 'found on the
bank of the Susquehanna near Kockvillo
on Tuesday morning which proved to be
the remains of J. I). MeElwee who waS
Jirobably drowned near Dunrannon a
ew weeks since, and at the time suppos
ed to be Washington 1)111.
Oats Stolen. Henry Fonlk, Esq., of
Rye twp., placed forty bushels of oats In
a garner for seed, but when he came to
use them a few days ago he found-nearly
thirty bushels had been stolen. He says
if the chap who so kindly cared for them
the past winter will call on him for the
balance, he can get them.
Almost a Fire. On Monday last the
roof of the Reformed Parsonage in this
borough took fire from the Chimney.
There being no trap-door to the roof, the
building was for a time in great danger.
A man who saw it, however, knocked a
hole in 'the roof and cut off a lath to en
able him to gut out, when a bucket of
water extinguished the flames. No
building should be without a trap-door
through .the roof.
Carlisle Presbytery. This body met
in Mechanicsburg on last Tuesday and
concluded its sessions on Wednesday
night. The churches in all six counties
includedln the Presbytery were generally
represented those in our own county
failing to be represented were Blatn and
Landisburg, Centre and Millerstown had
no elders present. Besides hearing the
narrative of the state of religion in the
various churches Presbytery appointed
its quota of three ministers and three
elders to represent it in the general as
sembly which meets in Chicago on May
17th. Elder T. II. Milligan and Rev. J
Edgar, both of this county are among
ithe number. After other routine busi
ly ffiess Presbytery adjourned.
Fire In Lewlstown. On Tuesday last
.at about noon a lire was discovered in
1 the boiler works of Willis & Bchochs at
Lewis town, which shortly spread to
some stables opposite. For a time it
looked as though the dames would ex
tend to a row of frame dwellings near
by, andwdrd was sent to Harrisburg
and Huntingdon for aid. This was
promptly furnished, but the fire was got
under control before the help arrived,
and the request was countermanded by
telegraph. Ten stables and the boiler
works were destroyed, the loss being
about $304000.
Successful Pursuit of a Horse Thief. On
Thuisday evening last, Mr. Wm. Kistler
returned to tills place, aecom pained by
Officer Anderson and several witnesses,
bringing with him Charles Houser, ar
rested for stealing Mr. Kistler's horse on
the night of the 12th of March. We gave
A full account of the stealing at the time,
And the pursuit that was made of the
thief the day following. It appears that
the horse was rode to Philadelphia,
passing through Wrightsvillo, where
the thief stopped on the night after the
horse was stolen. At that place he was
recognised by a former acquaintance
who examined the horse, but was told
so fair a story that he concluded that
the man was in rightful possession of
the animal. A description of the stolen
horse, which he afterward saw, led to
the thiefB detection and arrest The ar.
rest was made by Officer Roat at Harris
burg on Monday evening of last week,
who at ence wroto Mr. Kigtler, On
Wednesday, Mr. Rlstler went down to
appear against him. It was then found
necessary to go to Lancaster county, in
order to get the witnesses, and when he
arrived there, the prisoner demanded a
hearing In this county. Consequently
he and the witnesses were at once
brought here, when the prisoner waived
an examination, and was committed to
the care of the Sheriff.
Mr. Kistler deserves great credit, and
the thanks of every horse owner in the
county, for the persevering manner In
which he has pursued this thief.
The arrested party is the same man
who was taken from this county to the
penitentiary on the 6th of May 1675,and
was discharged on the 5th of March, only
seven days before the last crime was
The horse formerly stolen was, the
property of Jacob Kline near Liverpool,
and on that occasion the prisoner was
brought here during a Session of Court
and plead guilty to the charge, and was
sentenced under the name of Clarence
R. Dunn.
On Saturday the Court Issued an order
removing Houxer, the horse thief to the
Harrisburg Jail for safe keeping, the
Sheriff feeling satisfied that it was not
good policy to try to keep him here.
When here before he came near getting
out the first night of his arrival.
A Rascally Husband LaBt fall James
Lightner, of Richland, a town along the
Lebanon Valley railroad, manled a
young lady who had not yet reached her
majority. A few days ago the wife be
came of age and In company with her
husband visited her guardian, who paid
her $1 ,700 in money and a number of
notes. The husband took the package
containing her fortune and placed it in
his pocket, stating that It was safer in
his hands. When they reached home he
transferred the packtige to his wife and
remarked that he would join her in a
few hours. Not making his appearance
at midnight the wife became very uneasy
and'suspectlng that she had probably
been the victim of a dishonest transac
tion she. examined the package and
found that all the cosh was missing. She
informed her neighbors of the strange
and shameful proceeding, and telegrams
were sentindlfTerentdlrections notifying
the police authorities of the swindler's
operations and requesting his arrest. A
reward of $200 Is offered for his appre
hension. He bears on one of his arms
the image of a small child, formed with
India ink. Lightner Is about twenty
two years old. Patriot.

Cumberland County. We copy the fol
lowing from the Cumberland county
papers of last week :
Last week David O. Myers, of tho
Second ward, who suffered the loss of a
leg in theJate rebellion, took a contract
for digging a cistern on the premises of
Mr. wtouiier, on JNortn Hanover street.
David needed some help to complete the
job, and determined not to go outside of
the fraternity for assistance. He accord
ingly employed Robt. R. Matthews, of
the Third ward, who lost a leg by an ac
cident on the Cumberland Valley rail
road some years ago. The two unfortu
nates went to work with shovel and
Iilck, and got through with the job on
Monday last. This, we believe, is the
only instance of the kind brought to our
notice, and we merely make mention of
the fact tiecause it Is a matter of local in
terest. Carlltsle Volunteer.
On Tuesday of last week, John Meloy,
aged flfty-flve years, six feet high,
weighing about one hundred and thirty
pounds, grey whiskers, of a reserved dis-
Eosition, left bis home In Mechanics
urg. He was last seen in Harrisburg
on Wednesday walking towards the ca
nal. Any information respecting his
whereabouts will be thankfully received
by his wife at Mechanicsburg.
While driving some cattle at a flitting
in Middlesex township, near Sulphur
Springs, one day last week, Charles, son
or Mr. George Jacobs, was attacked by a
cow. The animal rushed upon the boy,
knocked him down, caught him upon
her horns and thus carried him about a
rod, then threw him down and tramped
upon him. The boy was somewhat
bruised on the head and scratched on tho
side by the cow's horns, but received no
serious injury.
On Monday night Uiere was an incen
diary attempt mado to fire the stable
attached to the Branch House, lit tho
occupancy of James A. Clark. The fire,
