Letter from IMoiioer.
PioxEEit, Pa.. April 21.
I write to-day under date of Pioneer, and
as I have spent tho day in looking about
some, I think I can write a little something
about your neighboring town that may not
be uninteresting. Pioneer is not so near a
defunct town as perhaps someof the Cen tre
people have been led to believe from your
observations when passing through en the
cars. TheTro has been some thinning out or
bouses I admit: many were taken down last
fall and moved to a worse place Pleasant
villc and the owners of tbem would now
think themselves well off if they were back
hero again ; but I know of no places of busi
ness that have been closed out of late for
reasou of decline in patronage except per
haps a saloon or billiard rpotn which every
town can well do without.
For tbe last two years the prophecy bas
been repeatedly made, and by ntany Inter
ested in the prosperity of the place, that
''tho next six months' will see this town
deader than a smelt." Notwithstanding, I
am informed by groceryiucn that their trade
is not in tho least declining, and tbe reak-
tive amount consumed by any district is a
pretty good expouant of tbe number of pop
ulation. Such predictions used to be very
commonly made concerning tbe Centre, but
the wise ones have becomo about tired
waiting for their propbicies to como to pass,
and in their disappointment bare gone lo
putting the third story on their buiidings,
and otherwise giving a more permanent ap
pearance to their town. It is a fact that
any of these oil towns, situated upon the
railroad that bas become a point of tran
sit bas n permanancy long after the adjacent
oil territory has been abandoned.
There is a great deal of territory in tbe
vicinity of this town that was once most ex.
cellont territory, and is now mostly aban
donedor as much so as oil territory ever
Is. I have never yet seen any old territory
on which there was not something being
done. I never yet saw territory, however
old or however much "drowned out, ' but
that would produce a little oil; and from
this fact I argue that operators will eventu
ally go ever enough territory so that eld
lingering wolls will give an .aggregate pro
duction equal to our total production of to
day. TaoFunkvIlle Flats, Benuingbo? Hill,
Western and Pioneer Runs, Foster Farm,
Bull Run, Sherman Well Flats and Cow.
Run has eath in its day produced large
quantities, and now when the glory of each
bas flown, there la out! a reinaaui ion,' (but
produces oil in paying quantities, and tbose
remnants principally rely on Pioneer tor
Nobody need appoint tbe funeral of Pion
eer very soon, for if tbey do, I assure them
they will be disappointed In having tbe
corpse. In my next I shall endeavor to
speak more of local affairs of thiB town.

The Body of a Child Found In Ifolm-
The quiet of Pitbole City was greatly dis
turbed on tbo 21st by tbe discovery or the
body of a child in the llolmden creek. These
occurrences are rare, of course, in any com
munity, but tho good citizens or Pitbole,
who have not been disturbed for a long time,
took the discovery to heart, and great wis
tbe tumult! Surmises and suspicions rest
ed on sundry women throughout tho Bor
ough, and in fact tbe crime was fixed upon
innocent parties, who, much to their satis
faction were relieved from suspicion by the
discovery or the real perpetrator or the deed,
and tho mother of the child.
Tbe facts of the discovery of tbe body, as
far as we can leurn, are these: Samuel
Smith was angling for tront in Holmden
Creek, and discovered the body a little dis
tance from bim. After obtaining assistance
the remains were taken out ot the water:
and an investigation was held by Constable
Ami in. It was decided that the child was
an abortion, nud Miss (Annie, who bas been
living with Mrs. Hicks was arrested as the
What tbe developments are we have not
yet learned, but further 'examination will
uo doubt, throw some light on tbe subject.
A Deah Beat: We heartily endorse the
following from tbe Titusville Herald or this
morning: Mr. K. Eddy left town last night,
accompanied with the best wishes of our
citizens at large.- Mr: Eddy came here
heralded with big Now York reputation,
and wo aro sorry that ho has had lo shoul
der tho sins of John G. Maflo, theei dtvaat
proprietor of tho theatre Meanwhile Mr.
Eddy has, liquidated the debla-of tho "so
culled'' theatre, having to draw on New
York for the same. The next timo that be
appeals here we trust that it will be upon
his own responsibility."

tice that on Friday bo would give papers
relating to tTie cost of defending the fron

upon the subject and expressing their views

Salt YafR Cuimxkys. In building a
chimney, put a quantity or stlt into tho
mortar with which tho intercourses or brick
are to be laid. The effect will be that Ihere
never will be any accumulation of soot in
the chimney. Tbo philosophy is thus stated:
The salt in tho portion of mortar which is
exposed absorbs moisture from thu atmos
phere, every damp day. Tbe Boot thus be
coming damp falls down into tbo fire-place.
This appears tube an English discovery.
It is used with success in Canada.
