LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER THURSDAY JULY 22, 1880.
ORPHAN SCHOOL EXAMINATION.
Interesting Kxerclaes mt Mount Jey Yeter
ilmj. The annual examination of the seldiei-s'
orphans under instruction in the state
school at Mount Jey, this county, was
made yesterddy. Profs. Heuck and Beis Beis
tle. of the state department, assisted by
Prof. Byerly, of Millersville, Prof. Geist,
of Marietta, and ethers, conducted the in
quiry into the intellectual, moral
and physical progress of the children dur
ing the prist year, with altogether satisfac
tory results. The exercises were opened
at 8:30 a.m., by He v. Mr. Deyle, of the
United Brethren church, who, it will be
remembered, was formerly a Greenback
member of the Pennsylvania Legislature
from Blair county. The first part of the
forenoon session was devoted te the pri
mary classes. In their studies, reading,
arithmetic, spelling and general inferma
tien, the little ones answered readily, and
showed by their answers that they had
been led te think for themselves, The
classes next in grade occupied the remain
der of the forenoon session. In leading,
arithmetic, etc., they showed considerable
knowledge, as well as in the boundaries of
states, location of geographical points and
the various forms of government of for
eign countries. During neon intermis
sion the boys were drilled by boy
officers in the field evolutions and manual
of arms. Their soldier-like appearance
and precision in each and every movement
merited the praises bestowed by the spec
tator. In the afternoon the higher grades
were examined in reading, arithmetic, ge
ography, history, grammar, literature, etc.
Their answers were ready and te the point
indicating a full understanding of the va
rious subjects under consideration. In the
history of our country all the principal
events were well fixed in the minds of the
pupils. The causes and results of" each
war, the effects they produced en the
country ; the rebellion and its various
phases, the principal actors and their
achievements, all were fully commented
upon and easily given. Diflicult problems
in arithmetic and algebra were easily
solved. Geed solutions, clear and concise,
were given for each problem. The practi
cal part of arithmetic received consider
able attention, and the pupils here dis
played their knowledge of business. In
this p.ir icular they did well. All arc well
posted in English literature ; the different
authors; their writings and extracts from
many pieces both poetry and prose.
The school rooms were nicely decorated
with bunting and greens. Everything was
in geed condition. The copy-books, drawing-books
and book-keeping accounts were
carefully examined and pronounced excel
lent. The works of the educational depart
ment has been thorough and the interest
the pupils took in answering questions
proves that they arc anxious te learn. In
the building, grounds, etc., everything is
in excellent condition, the bed rooms, and
bedding neat and tidy, ami the grounds in
The exercises closed at G p. m. Speeches
congratulating the children en their suc
cessful examination, excellent behavior,
smiling faces, urging them en te greater
exertions, se as te become useful men and
women, were made by Profs. Ileuck,
Iteistlc, Stewart and Geist, and State
Treasurer Butler. There were many visi
tors from the town and neighborhood.

Kenult or I'ref. Persifer Frazer's Survey.
We are indebted te Themas B. Cochran,
esq., for a copy of " The Geology of Lan
caster County,'' being a volume of JKO
pages, containing very full and detailed
reports of the general geology of Lancaster
aunty, township geology, mining indus
tries, temperature- of springs, analyses of
ores, rocks and minerals, catalogue of spec
imens collected during the survey, notes
en the copper ores of the United States
and many ether matters of deep interest te
the student of geology. The work is
admirably printed and iscmbellishcd with a
colored map of the state, showing the areas
surveyed from 1874 te 1879 inclusive, and
a large number of colored plates showing
the rock formation in different sections of
the county.' Among these are representa
tions of the Indian sculpture en the Sus
quehanna opposite Bald Friar, near the
Maryland line, views of the Chiques rock,
view of a vein of trap en the Columbia and
Pert Deposit railroad, at Williamson's
Point, magnified section of a piece of trap,
fossils from Frazer's point, Md., view of
the slate quarries and outcrop of trap at
Devil's Den, near Gettysburg. A copious
index accompanies the work. The volume
is one of a series, published by the state,
giving the result of very careful surveys
made by a large crops of experienced offi
cers. A Snake Story.
The Lebanon Ceuriei says: "They
have big snakes down about where Lan
caster and Lebanon counties come togeth
er at least we have heard stories about
the serpents there that justify such an
opinion. Wc remember te have heard an
aged resident of that locality tell of hav
ing seen black snakes running along the
top of a fence, and they were longer than
the rails. And the same old runners, or
their descendants, seem still te be in the
locality. It is said that Jacob Ilauck,
living near Cocalico posteffice, was at
tacked last Thursday by three black snakes
while walking through a meadow near his
home, and there is no knowing what
might have been the end of it had net two
weed-choppers come te his assistance and
dispatched the snakes, the largcrst of
which measured six feet and eight inches.'"
The Girls' Helping Club of the
Moravian church composed of little
girls from 10 te 13 years of age,
held a fair last evening in the lec
ture room of the church. The room was
nicely fitted up and there were displayed
en the tables a large number of useful and
fancy articles, most of which were sold dur
ing the evening. They also had en sale
fiuits, flowers, candies ice creams &c.
The net receipts will probably reach SeO.
Gee. It. Hastings's Injuries.
Information from San Francisce, Cal.,
advises the iKTELLir.EXCEUthat it was net
it. Frank Hastings who was se seriously
injured in the powder explosion in that
city en the Fourth of July, but Gee. B.
Hastings, who resided with his mother iu
this city for years and is well known in
Lancaster. He may finally recover,
though his left eye is burned out and his
whole left side terribly injured.
Going te Commencement.
About 30 persons left this city this
nierning te attend the annual commence

Six Weeks In the Old Countries and en the
Mr. B. Yecker, proprietor of Fulton
opera house, returned te this city last
night from New Yerk, where he landed
yesterday morning en his return from his
European trip, in which he was accom
panied by his son Victer Yecker, who has
tarried for a few days' sojourn en the sea
coast before he gets back te Lancaster.
Mr. B. Yecker is as brown as a berry and
leeks very well. lie was much delighted
with his trip, and readily gave an Iktel
ligenceii reporter a sketch of the many
points of interest which he " took in "
Leaving Xcw Yerk en June 3, in the
Alabama, of the State line, he arrived in
Glasgow en the 17th. He was sick half a
day and Victer was sick for two days en
the voyage. Next day he went te Londen
and during the brief stay there he visited
St. Paul's, the Museum, Westminister
Abbey, Windser Castle, the Prince Albert
memorial, the Queen's garden, King of
Helland's residence, Zoological garden,
Heuse of Lords, the opera at the Grand
opera house and ether points of interest.
Londen seemed mere like New Yerk than
any city he visited. On Sunday the shops
and restaurants were open only from 1 te
3 p. m. Prices at Her Majesty's theatre
are higher then at Fulton hall, as it cost
$e.2." te get a parquettc scat te hear Nils
son in grand opera.
He left Londen en the 22d for Brussels,
and crossed the straits without discomfort ;
dined at Brussels and was much pleased
with its beautiful appearance ; visited the
Hetel de Villc. cathedral and national
exhibition, winch resembled our Centen
nial. Left for Cologne at 5 p. m., arriving there
at 11:30. The Cologne cathedral attracted
his special interest; thence te Benn and
en the Rhine te Mainz, past Coblentz and
the beauty and grandeur of the Rhine
scenery. At Mainz he viewed the cathe
dral and attended the markets with their
quaint features ; thence te "Weiss Baden,
a fine clean city with 50,000 people, drank
water from the boiling well, visited the
gardens, and met the brothers of Philip
Halm and Adam Finger, of this city, who
Frem there Mr. Yecker went te Frank
fort where amid the music and ether at
tractions of the gardens he had a fine time.
He reached Heidelberg en the 2Cth, view
ed its castle ruins, famous wine cask,
grand scenery and university life. Thence
he went te Strasburg, attended vespers in
the great cathedral, looked at the clock,
mounted the towers and saw the fortifica
tions ; next went te Guebweilcr, and saw
Hilaire Zaepfel's brother, and from thence
te Regisheim, where Mr. Yccker's sister
resides. On the 20th he arrived at Hcrtz
falden, his birthplace, which he found
almost unchanged since he left it thirty
two years age. Afterwards he visited
Milhauscn, Basic, and leaving Germany
behind him, came te Paris, reaching there
en July 2.
In that great centre of fashion and art
he visited all the famous resorts of tourists
and objects of historical interest, especial
ly the places of popular amusement which
had unusual interest for him. With the
features of Paris that are of world-wide
fame he was much pleased ; he viewed its
landmarks with great interest and its
art galleries, suburbs, palaces stores,
arches, monuments and ruins.
Returning Mr. Yecker again visit
ed Londen, remained there en July 0th
and 7th, visiting the Royal Strand
theatre, the Tower and Crystal Palace.
Thence he went te Edinburgh and had a
geed time there. Sailing for America en
the Indiana he left Glasgow at 1 p. m., en
July 9 and had an interesting trip home
ward, getting a sight at whales and ice
bergs, dense fogs, Newfoundland fisher
men adrift, lest and hungry, and having
the ship's company startled by one of the
steerage passengers jumping overboard
and drowning himself.

A Presidential Straw in r.ast Lampeter.
Yesterday the frame of a large tobacco
shed was erected en the farm of District
Attorney Eshlcman, at Greenlaud, East
Lampeter township. The event drew to
gether a large number of persons, as such
events invariably de, and among
them were many of Mr. Esto
nian's political friends. A vote en the
presidency was taken and resulted
as follews: Garfield, 178;
2; Garfield's majority, 17G.
This is a
peer showing for the Republicans of East
Lampeter. The vote in that township in
187G was as fellows : Hayes, 430 ; Tilden,
el ; Hayes's majority, 379. Republican
less as far as heard from 203. This is a
pretty geed democratic straw, but we
would like te knew what these two Demo
crats were doing in such bad company.
They were probably young and inexper
ienced in the ways of the district attorney
and his wicked partners. They should
subscribe for the campaign Ixtelligex
ci:k and read it carefully.
A Geed Time of It.
Last evening the friends of Themas Mc
Geehau, te the number of forty or fifty,
called upon him at his residence in De
Haven park, te congratulate him upon his
safe arrival at the age of 28 years. He was
made the recipient of several handsome
presents, and the party had " a geed
time" until midnight.
liacl ICeads Upset.
The reads in the lower end of the county
are in a very bad condition, owing te the
recent heavy rains. Yesterday as Charles
M. Strinc, deputy sherifF, was driving in
Fulton township his buggy was upset, but
suffered no damage.
Geerge Bucher, aged 10, son of Cyrus
Buchcr, of Cornwall, fell from the locomo
tive there, and being dragged a short dis
tance, sustained internal injuries, from the
effects of which he died en Tuesday .
Jehn Lindhurst and his wife were ar
rested yesterday for begging and being
drunk and disorderly en the street, Jehn
was sent te jail for GO days and his wife
(one te Washington.
Thes. A. Wiley, collector of internal rev
enue, left Lancaster yesterday afternoon
for Washington, en business connected
with his office, and will return te-morrow.
Cel. Jehn W. Ferney, editor of Progress,
arrived in this city en the fast line this
afternoon. He took the next train for
Fire In Drutnere Centre Last Evening Other
Items of Interest in the Lewer End.
Last evening about 6 o'clock the hotel at
Drumore Centre took fire from, as far as
can be learned, some unknown cause, and
burned completely te the ground. A great
many people collected from the neighbor neighber neighbor
berhood and fortunately succeeded in
saving all the contents of the house, and
protecting the surrounding buildings from
the flames. Insured in the Southern Mu
tual of Lancaster county for $2,000.
This hotel was one of the best known
stands in the lower end, though owing te
the remonstrance of the neighbors no
license was granted the present occupants
last year, and the application for 1880 is
still pending in court. The widow of the
late Henry Eckman and her seu have re
sided there for years past, and the title te
the property has been recently in young
Eckman, though Mr. Sanders McCullough,
of Oxford, has had a lien upon the prop
erty for well-nigh as much as its value,
which probably exceeds the ins'iranse.
The building was a two story frame
structure at the cress reads, en the Lan
caster and Pert Deposit lead, a mile this
side of Chestnut Level. Acress the way
is a let of frame shedding; near by are
some shops, and at some distance the hall
of the Washington ledge A. Y. M.. with a
store in the first story. Owing te the
contention ever licensing the stand it is
net likely that the building will be rebuilt
for hotel puipeses.
On Tuesday Drumore had quite a rain
and wind storm. Reads and corn fields were
badly washed. Along the Conowingo
creek bridges were taken that were sup
posed te be above the hghest floods, and
considerable damage done generally.
The evening train en the Peach Bettem
railroad, was unable te come through en
account of the flood.

A HERO AND A MARTYR.
Hew Peter Woodland Met His Death.
Elsewhere in the account of the terrible
tunnel accident at Jersey City yesterday
mention is made of the bravery of Peter
Woodland, who was in charge of the work
men there. It seems, by ether accounts
of the affair, that he met his death with
the courage of a here and the firmness of
a martyr. Of the twenty-eight men at
work fourteen had been out for lunch and
the ethers were about te go ; had the lat
ter delayed a minute the accident would
net have happened, for the fatal leak,
which was discovered just tee late, might
easily have been stepped if discovered in
time. As they steed together, just at the
moment of shifting, a peculiar hissing
sound was heard with which all were fa
miliar. It meant a leak, and a leak meant
" Back, and step the leak !" shouted
Woodland, and the order was obeyed al
most before it was given, every man
springing at once te the place of extreme
danger. Every man went te work te step
the leak with his life iu his hand.
The rift that one man could have stepped
at the right moment was new wide enough
for the foul current of corruption and
death te flew in from tberiver bottom, aud
the only safety was iu flight. Between the
spot where they were and the open air there
were two locked doers, only one of which
could be opened at once. The little rift
above them became a chasm. The couy ceuy
pressed air escaped until there was no
lentrer pressure cneu"h from within
te maintain the portion of unfinish
ed work! It broke, aud water and
mud closed in around them. The electric
light by which they worked was extin
guished. All was darkness. Even flight
had iu a moment liccemc a doubtful prob
lem. Woodland's quick order te work
had come tee late, and he called the re
treat as promptly as he ordered the ad
vance. " Quick, boys, get into the lock,"
he shouted, ami instead of passing in
among the first, he steed by the deer help
ing one after another in.
Eight men passed. They were net yet
safe. If the ethers could get in and the
inner deer of the lock could be closed before
the falling debris (for everything around
them was falling by that time) should
block the way they would be almost safe.
But as the ninth man was cutering the
lock the awful weight of the mud and
water fell against the deer, pinning him
se fast that nothing could have freed him
The deer was fast. One man was fas
tened in the doorway between the ether
nineteen and their last chance of life. The
eight in the lock were thus almost lest, for
there was no longer a chance te close the
inner deer and the flood was en them.
Swiftly the water lushed into the lock, the
flood rose knee deep where they steed, and
the air was compressed by all the pressure
of the rise above them in the little cham
ber, the deer of which was securely
fastened against them. They could net
open this deer nor could they break it
from the inside. But in the lock were two
dead lights of massive glass, ciglit inches
in diameter, and these the men knew were
te be biekcn as a last reseit. Woodland
called en them te keep cool aud as he
steed quietly by the deer he inspired them
with courage. Peer Andersen, crushed
by the deer, called for help and three
of the men caught him by the hair and
neck and pulled ; but every movement was
agony te the man, and he wailed pitoeiisly
te be let alone. As the water rose Wood
land ordered the eight te step the crack
of the deer which shut off communication
between them and him and destroyed his
last heic. They hesitated ; he rcjicated the
brave order. The men stripped, packed
the crack of the deer with their clothes,
and the portion that Audcisen's body did
net fill was closed and the rapid increase
of the water checked.
Through the bull's eye one of the men
saw Woodland and the dim figures of
their fellow workmen behind him. He
shouted the erder: "Break open the
bull's-eye." They hcsitaied for they knew
it was sine and sudden death te him. lie
.saw them pause and his elder ng.iin came :
" Knock out the bull's eye ; knock it out.
I say ;" and then the stern veice faltered
a little, as he added "and de what you
can for the rest of us."
Blew upon blew fell en the thick glass.
and was answered from the outside by two
men who had by this time arrived with
crowbars. The glass flew eut.aud the cold
air rushed in. Michael Birdsall, a watch
man, ami Michael Hurley, a laborer,
braced themselves en the outside and
started the deer a little ; then the
frenzied men en the inside (for the water
was bubbling about their shoulders new)
caught the iron edge and pulled with all
their strength The deer flew open aud
with the rush of air came the rush of
water. Eight naked men were hurled into
the working shaft and, together with the
two rescuers, they hurried up the ladder te
the ground. Behind them, licncath the
water that boiled aud seethed in the early
morning light, were the bodies of their
nineteen comrades and the here, AVood AVeod AVoed
