the Baltimore and Ohio railroad on the
evening of July 20, were to-day found

Financial Affairs In Reading.
Judge Slitzel one of the assignees of
the Beading savings bank, says he could
not designate a day when a statement
of the affairs of the bank will be made
The clerks are hard at work balancing
the accounts of depositors, and when
they have finished a balance sheet will
be prepared and an ofllcial announce
Last Monday an assignment was
made by Messrs Boyer & Sellers, of the
Dime savings bank. The members of
the firm have each made individual
assignments for the benefit of the
creditors. Mr. Chlstian Stotz is the
United States Bank Examiner Drew
has left town after making a thorough
investigation of the affairs of the First
' national bank there. Some of the direc
tors of the bank state that Mr. Drew
expressed himself entirely satisfied with
the condition of the bank and declares
it to be as " sound as a dollar."
A Narrow Escape.
On the 24th inst., one of the first fam
ilies of Columbia, Lancaster county,
Penn'a., made a narrow escape from
being poisoned. The domestic had pur
chased a quantity of arsenic which she
mixed with a large dish of cracker dust;
the preparation was put in a closet, and
forgotten ; shortly afterwards the maid
went to visit some friends, leaving her
sister as a substitute In her absence.
, Yesterday morning the family were
served with fish, and the substitute us
she afterwards declared, was within an
ace of using the mixture, which she sup
posed was the 6nly cracker dust in the
house, but fortunately, afterwards dis
covered that which was used by the
family. A few hours afterwards the
sister returned, and rushing into the
house, went for that dish of poison like
a streak of lightning, threw it in the
fire and then sat down and cried. Such
carelessness is unpardonable, and it is
almost by a miracle that weare not call
ed on to chronicle the death of a whole
family by the too careless use of poison.
Car Robbers Arrested.
In six months the cars which have
been left standing on the siding at the
Tyrone warehouse have been systematic
ally robbed of their contents, consisting
of boots, shoes, dress goods, leather and
in fact almost every kind of article of
transportation of which private in
dividuals could make use. The services
of Detective A. K. Boat, of Harrisburg,
were called into requisition and for over
a week he has been unsuccessfully en
gaged in bunting the thieves in and
around Tyrone. Following a clue which
he secured, on Saturday night he arrest
ed in Huntingdon a man named Charles
Cromer. By skillful manipulation he
was induced to unbosom himself. He
Implicated certain parties in tills city in
the robberies, which sent ofTlcer Boat
direct to tills city. The aid of constable
Howard was called for and all day, from
three o'clock this morning, the force of
officers 1ms been engaged In hunting for
concealed stolen goods. Of the houses on
Ninth avenue searched by the officers,
six contained stolen goods. Under a
house on Eight street near Lexington
avenue, a large quantity of leather was
found stowed away back. As we go to
press the officers are still at work. Nine
arrests have been made and more are to
follow. It is supposed that the robberies
will aggregate over $1,000. Further de
velopment are confidently expected,
until which time further publication is
unadvisable. Atioona Mirror of 20th

tar The lynching of an infidel in Bell
county, Texas, was noticed not long since.
He was a bitter opponent of Christianity,
and his crowning offence against tho pre
vailing religious sentiment was a lecture
against the divinity of Christ. A mob of
believers took him from his bed at night,
dragged him into the woods, tied him to a
tree, and gave him a hundred lashes with a
raw hide. Previous to the whipping the
spokesman of the party said : " We know
you are an honest man aud a good physi
cian, but we will tolerate no infidel ill Bell
county ; so, by the help of God, we will
stop your career of infidelity." A written
notice was posted on the tree that infideli
ty in Bell county would in the future be
punished by hanging. There is no intima
