THE TIMES, NEW ttLGOMFIELD, PA!, SEPTEMBER U, 1880.
A Fight with a Burglar In a Dark Room.
The Chioago Eveulng News, nays ; A
. desperate fight occurred about 12 o'clock
lost Might between a burglar and Justlu
Buttorfluld, son of William Butterfleld,
residing at 009 Huron atreot, on the North
Bide. The Intruder had climbed up to
a raised window on the second floor and
had just got In the room when he wag
heard by the young man. Taking a re
volver, which he had at hand, he fired one
shot at the burglar, who gave a lond howl,
as if badly wounded.
He in his turn fired his revolver at But
terfleld, the bullet narrowly missing him
aud lodgiug in the wall behind him. The
two then cloBed in a fleroe struggle for the
mastery. It was euded by the thief strik
iug his adversary a stunning blow on the
head, probably with a billy, which caused
him to fall to the floor. The burglar seiz
ed the opportunity to make his escape
through the window by which he had en
tered. Owing to the plucky resistance made by
young Battel field, bo did not succeed in
taking away any plunder. He was proba
bly very badly wounded, as the carpet
where the struggle had occurred was soak
ed with blood. The room was quite dark
at the time, and the young man could not
see his antagonist well enough to give any
description of him.
Trimmings at Fifty Dollars per Yard.
A New York letter writer says ; I had
the privilege of seeing iu a large dry-goods
houso a few days ago seme beautiful
unique-French goods Just imported. The
material was a mixture of silk and cotton,
with threads of gold woven into it. The
cost of the exquisite stuff was f 22. SO per
yard laid down in New York, and the large
quantity imported was bought up in a day
or two, destined mostly for Chicago and
and other large cities, where I understand
it is to be retailed at $50 per yard. The
-cloth is intended for use as trimming, and
the quantity required for a single dress
is four or five yards. The buyers were de
lighted with it, and no doubt further im
portations of this cloth of gold will arrive
soon. This is ominous information for
lfusbands, but they will now know how it
comes that a dress costs $400 or $500 the
little item of ?250 for " trimming" will
make that very apparent. One consolation
they have and much good may it do them,
is that after the dress is worn out the
threads of gold can be extracted and sold
as precious metal.
An Unexpected End to a Divorce Suit.
The suit for limited divorce instituted by
Mrs. Mary M. Earl against Chas. E. Earl
a well to-do undertaker, who is sexton of
the Classon Avenue Presbyterian Church
iu Brooklyn, has reached an unexpected
ending. The couple were members of the
church named and were married by the
Rev. Dr. Jos. T. Duryea, its pastor, who at
the last hearing in the divorce suit was a
witness for the plaintiff. Much bitterness
between the parties was manifested in
court. Recently one of their two children
fell sick, and the physician recommended
its removal to its father's house, where it
died. When the mother went to attend
the funeral she met her husband face to
face at the coffin, and in their common grief
she fell into his arms weeping. They
pledged forgiveness to each other returned
to their old home where they are now liv
ing together, and the wife's lawyer applied
to Judge Reynolds for permission to dis
continue the divorce suit.
A Child Killed by a Large Rat.
Reading, September C The family of
Franklin Kentner, residing near Womels
dorf, in this county, were aroused the
other night from their slumbers by screams
of their four-months old child, to their
horror they found a huge rat grappling
with the babe and biting it in the throat.
The rat shook the babe as a terrier would
a rat, and then it jumped from the cradle
and escaped. The child was horribly
mangled, and it died from convulsions
and loss of blood. It was privately buried
A Careful Landlady.
The careful landlady of a summer boarding-house
wag overheard the other day, as
she was talking with a neighbor who had
"just run in" to the kitchen for a moment.
Said the visitor : " There is a speck of
B6mething in that cake batter, Miss Sprout.'
Honest matron : " Yea, I shouldn't wonder
if there was, an jest as likely as not it's
flies. Do you know that I'm losing my
eyesight so fast that I don't dare to make
cake any longer for the boarders, without
I put currants into it, 'cause I couldn't
see a fly if he should get in, and the cur
rants do mix in so well with the pesky
flies." The boarders did not eat currant
eake that night.
In Ducker vs. State, the Oregon Supreme
Court lately heard a case in which the facts
were that A by mistake paid to B a roll of
twenty-dollar gold pieces, supposing it to
be a roll of half dollars. B subsequently dis
covered the mistake and knew who was
the owner, but nevertheless then appropri
ated the money to his own use and refused
on demand to make restitution. The Court
held that he was guilty of larceny.
It Was a Mean Trick.
A correspondent, of Lilly, Tazewell
oouuty, 111., says : Town Simpson when in
Mackinaw the otbor evening, called to see
one of the fair belles of town. Wheu he
got on his horse to start home be found he
had forgotten to untie him. he tried to
dismount, but stuok fast to the saddle.
He remained there for some time, but was
unable to extraot himself. Some jealous
rascal had smeared his saddle with tar.
He finally leaned forward and out the hitch
rein, and rode homeward bewailing his
fate. He cut the saddle-girth when' be
got home, built up a rousing fire, warmed
the tar, and at lant found liberty. No clue
to the perpetrator of this bold deed has
yet been obtained.
Cows as Weather Prophets.
Cows know more about the weather than
Yeunor. An Indiana farmer drove his
nine cows to a pump-trough to water them.
They were standing by the pump waiting
for him, when suddenly, with tails erect,
they skipped down the lane as fast as they
could go. For a minute or so the farmer
wondered what this meaut but he soon
found out. Suddenly, although the sky
was clear and the atmosphere still, a young
cyclone, not over twenty feet in breadth,
darted dowu from the sky, aud striking
the earth near the pump, twisted off Ave
large beech shade-trees standing near by
as though they bad been mere weeds..
When the cows made the stampede there
were no signs of its coming.
A Singular Death.
Margaret Fury, residing with her husband
in a tenement house Providence, R. I., came
to her death under singular ciroumstamces.
Two young roughs were abusing their
mother under her widow. Mrs. Fury re
monstrated, whereupon they commenced
throwing stones at her, one of which
struck her with so much force that she
died in about two hours. A cursory ex
amination of the body showed no mark of
the missile. The boys who threw the
Btones have fled.
A Storm of Files.
Halifax, N. S., September 7. Im
mense swarms ef flies passed over Guys
boro on Sunday. They came from the
east and resembled a dark cloud. People
were much alarmed.
