Death op Mrs. J. G. Ooiiek. We learn
ot the sudden death Of Mrs. J. G. Ogden,
of Oil City, who expired this moruing at
about 7 o'clock. The deceased arose from
her bed, and wbilo in tho aot of dressing,
something gave away near her heart, the
effeot causing sudden illness. A physician
was called who prescribed something for a
slight illness, and took bis departure. She
sank rapidly, however, and died before hrr
physician again arrived. Il is supposed
she died of heart disease.

Tnt "Woman Qc9tion." Grace Green
wood writing to Horace Greeley corrective
of some errora he is supposed to have made
en tbe ''Woman Question," relates the fol
lowing: "Once when travelling Id the
Australian Tyrol I passed on tbe road a
singular establishment. It was a cart load,
ed with manure, and drawn by a cow, a
donkey and a woman, harnessed together.
Tbe master of this grotoqne tandem teami
a burly peasant, walking leisurely beside it
meditatively smoking bis meereschaum.
One could see by bis placied countenance)
that bis soul bad never been vexed by the
woman question.'" Seeing 4 bat Mr
Greeley does net endorse fully tbe business
of tbe strong minded, this is supposed to be
a severe cut on the philosopher.

W. S. Keller, of Titusville, describes the
condition of the unfortunate man on Friday
"Watson (Mr. Keller) is better to-day,
tbe doctor thinks, and so do we all. He is
very weak indeed but has bad only three
spasms to-day, and they were not very bard,
lis bad none last night, and rested very
well, with the exception of having to be up
very often. Ilia stomach and bowelB are iu
a terrible condition. Yesterday be would
not partake ol medicine from any one. He
was deranged and thought tbe doctors
wantcd t0 poison bim.
The doctors thought
it was not strange that his brain should be
affected, even worse than it was. To-day
bis mind is clearer, and be has forgotten all
about his foolish fancy. Still we have to
put his medicine iuto something, so be will
not detect it. Tbe doctors think his symp
toms much better, and have hopes of bia
recovery ; still it is a matter of time. "-Herald
