A Sad Case.
"Miss Sarah Fetrow, an accomplished
and highly esteemed young lady residing
in Falrview township.York county ,came
to that place last Saturday forenoon to
have some teeth extracted, and called
upon Dr. Trimmer, a well known den
tist, for that purpose. Dr. Trimmer ad
ministered the chloroform, and extract.
ed two of Miss Fetrow's teeth, the effects
of the anesthetic passing off meanwhile.
The doctor then administered a second
dose, and extracted several more teeth.
After the effects of dose No. 2 had passed
off, the doctor administered a third dose,
and while he was in the act of taking
out three more teeth he discovered that
Miss F. was so much reduced as to give
him alarm. - All was done that could
be thought of to restore her, but sad to
relate in two hours' time Miss Fetrow
was a corpse. The sad event has caused
great excitement in this vicinity, and
many of our citizens sympathize with
the relatives of the young lady over this

Lancaster Jan. 26. Manuel M'
Shane, owner of the Rohrerstown rol
ling mill, called on the sheriff this after
noon to protect his property, which was
in danger of being destroyed by a mob.
Some of the employees demanded the
discharge of a man named Gravel, and
Mr. M'Shane, feeling that he bad a per
fect right to employ whom he pleased
refused to accede to their demands.
This morning the men struck, and some
of them getting under the influence of
whiskey, a row was the result, in which
a man named Patrick O'Donnel a friend
of Gravel, was pretty roughly used. More
trouble is anticipated, as M'Sbane would
put to work others in place of those
who struck, and if they attempted to go
to work they will likely meet with vlo
ence at the hands of the discharged em
ployees. The riot having subsided, the
Hheriff was advised that be bad no juris
diction, but Mr. M'Sbane is endeavoring
to make arrangements for the employ,
ment of sufficient police force to protect
his works and those who are willing to
go to work.
Over Much Snow.
A Quebec special says ! Since the snow
storm of Saturday two or three ava
lanches of snow have fallen from the
cliff beneath the citadel, In one Instance
several houses narrowly escaping de
molition. All the Inhabitants of the
street, two miles long, are threatened
with the same danger and the greatest
consternation exists, some of them are
leaving their homes and others afraid to
go to bed. Three children eight years
old, while sliding near Valler street, were
suddenly buried beneath a snow slide
Saturday evening to the depth of twelve
feet. The most exciting search was
made for them, but over ten minutes
were occupied In digging them out, all
three being found alive, but perfectly
black In color and unconscious. They
state that they retained consciousness a
short time after being buried by the
snow, and prayed to God as they felt
suffocation coming on to forgive their
Bins. All will recover. The sense of
impending danger and fears of further
catastrophes is very appalling here.
A Curious Case of Starvation.
Mrs. Harriet Breon, who resided a
few miles east of Aaronsburg, Centre
county, died from pure starvation in the
mldBt of plenty. Several years ago she
first experienced some little difficulty In
swallowing, but did not feel any per
ceptible change until three mouths ago,
when the taking of any kind of food was
done only with great effort. Within
the last few weeks she could swallow
nothing at all, not even milk. Her at
tending rhvBlclan made a post mortem
examination and proved his diaguosis to

After struggling thus till all parties
