county without making matters appear
worse by lying.
"yA friend says : He stepped into a mil

up and stepped to one side. There waB
a lady in at the time looking for a bon
net Bhaped to suit her. She finally
found the one he had put in shape, and
it just took her fancy : it was just what

ten year old son of Mr. Andrew Hart
man residing in Liberty Valley accident

A Horse that Wouldn't Die. A few days
ago Mr. George Eckert, of Centre twp.,
was unfortunate enough to have his best
horse attacked with a sickness that
promised to end in a manner disastrous
to the equine quadruped. Every exer
tion was made to save the life and valu
able services of the animal ; the best
medical talent was 8ecured,lmt all was
of no avail. The opinion was given
that the horse must die, and so George
said if that is so, V I will lead, the ani
mal to the woods and save the 'trouble of
hauling him out (for a dead horse is
heavy to haul." He therefore led him
to a secluded spot and tied him to a tree.
Next morning he thought he would
go out and give the animal a decent bur
ial, and perhaps heave a sigh and drop a
tear over the grave. But we can all im
agine the sad disappointment of our
friend when he reached the spot where
the horse had been tied, and found that
the animal had eaten every green leaf
and twig within reach, and was appar
ently anxious for more feed.' Mr. E. led
his horse home again and the obstinate
animal is getting all fight . '

from last year's yield. He intends to
shock the corn next week. His wheat
and oats of lust year are as yet unthresh

plow for this year, and hopes to plant in
June ; he has 00 barrels of prime cider
on hand, owns good buildings, CO hogs,
80 sheep with other stock, is contented
and happy, and don't care whether the
school keeps or the master courU the
girls. It is evident that he don't expect
the world to end this year, and when the

XMr. Editor: On last Tuesday even
ing, the Blain Band went out into the
country to serenade some of the citi
zens. That day being the 21st anniversa
ry of the married life of Solomon F.
Bower, one of the Commissioners of the
county, the Band gave him a serenade,
after which the Baud was treated to an
excellent supper, served up by the Com
mission's wife, who is one of the best
cooks in the county. Mr. Bower is one
of the most successful farmers of the
Upper End. He has two farms lying
side by side, and under the highest state
of cultivation. The Band came away
well pleased with their entertainment.

Hon. J. r. Wiclcertham, SuptrinUndent of

Certain scandalous rumors having been pat in
circulation by evil disposed and untruthful
busy bodies, which are calculated to injure me
and brine; odium upon my good name, I appeal
to you as the proper source from which such
information must come to prove the assertions
cither trne or fulBe. The report and rumor al
luded to above is to tho effect that I was com
pelled to dispose of the property known as the
White Hall school, and retire from the position
of Superintendent on account of want of abil
ity and misdemeanor had I not done so the
Department, over which you have the honor to
preside, would have removed me or transferred
the children elsewhere. Be kind enough to in
form me at your earliest convenience whether
or not there Is any truth in the above named
report, and oblige yours most respectfully,

John Ddm Dbar Bir : In answer to your

of the property known as the White Hall

action of this department, and the question of
transferring the children from your care was
never considered by ns.

Mr. Editor : On the night of the tilth Inst.,
two masked men entered through a window on
the first floor .the residence of Wm.J. McMorrls
In Watts township, and after devouring eata

Thev then compelled Mrs. M. to get np and
give them the money she had. which fortunate

her to get Into bed, and an old lady by the
name of Wolf to go down stairs and lock the
door after them, threatening to return and
kill the whole family if any alarm was made.

lowing from the Cumberland county
papers of last week :
One of the most startling crimes that
has been committed in our town for
many years was consummated on Satur
day night. Mr. Samuel Kronenberg,
better known as Cheap John, was wend
ing his way homeward, after a very busy
day, about 10.15 o'clock on the eveVilng
nnmed. and, nearly opposite the Jail, on
Main street, was attacked by two men,
(white,) one of whom caught him by the
throat and held him while the other
robbed him of his valuables. Mr. K.
struggled as best he could, but a tight
grip upon his throat made resistance
useless. The thieves, whoever they were,
succeeded In getting $300 In money, an
elegant watch and the store-keys. This
loss falls heavily upon Mr. K., as he is
not a man of great means. The sever
ity of the grasp upon his throat may be
inferred from the fact that he was very
sore yet on Monday morning.
On Saturday morning, about nine
o'clock, the larire barn on the farm of
Jacob Slieely, situated about two miles
Routli ot oyster's 1'olnt, was discovered
to be on fire, and in a very short time
after the lire was discovered, the build
ing was a heap of ruins. Among the
losses enumera led was the destruction of
400 bushels of corn, a spring wagon,
reaping machine, and a number of other
farming implements. Live stock all
saved. -vLoss not known. Mirror.
