Hiirli way ltofoliery. On last Friday, Mr.
W illiam Kepner while passing along the
Tuscarora Mountain, a mile or so from Ick
esburg, in broad daylight was attacked by
two Germans, who, with a club raised over
his head compelled him to deliver his pocket-book,
containing $$. After obtaining
this, they allowed him to proceed. In his
over coat pocket he had $;l.l, which sum
they did not obtain.
Xf)og Suit . At the dog suit in Spring
township, last week, it was positively
proved that a dog that sucked eggs at
tho neighbors' barns was worth If.), and the
Squire accordingly gave judgement lor the
plaintiff for the above sum and costs of
suit. Mr. Zach. Rice, the defendant in the
case, says the verdict makes him feel, like
quoting a part of tho 18th verse of the
23d chapter of Deuteronomy.
Robbery. On tho night of the 28th ult.,
tho house of C. Thtidium, near Oak Grove,
was entered by burglars.
Mr. Thudium had a day or two previous to
Jie robbery deposited quite a large sum in
.lie Carlisle Bank, and it was probably this
. urn that tho thieves were after, not know-
ng but what it was still on the premises,
(.'hosts were forced open with a large chisel,
but all they succeeded in obtaining was $20
in worthless money and two watches. It is
presumed tho burglars came from Carlisle.

A Good Thing for Home One. Some
persona havo proposed to form a Farmers'
Association for tho purpose of shipping
produce and supplying tho shareholders in
return with Salt, Fish, &c. This will bo a
nice thing for tho one who takes charge of
the business, but whether tho shareholders
will ever profit by it, is very doubtful.
About ono years' experience, we think, will
satisfy the farmers that their interests are as
well protected by tho present warehouse
system, as it would be uuder tho proposed
The following signs though so
ry ridtndovs are firmly Iwlicved by many
persons in the county :
Never roof a building when tho sign is
up or the shingles will all turn up in a short
time ; but if put on when tho sign is down
they will stay down.
Never set a fence when the sign is down
or it will sink in the ground and rot the
Sprinkle ashes on your cattle on Ash
Wednesday, as it keeps them healthy.
Never begin any new work on Friday, as
it is an unlucky day.
Plant your potatoes in tho sign of tho
scales for a good crop.
When your bees swarm put them in a
new hive and lay a little hog manure on top
to keep them in.

Take the Bible for your guide, and let

they will lead you astray.
Did not so many persons faithfully carry
out the instructions contained in tho last
clause of the preceding paragraph, fewer
persons would be foolish enough to bo in

What we Like to see. We like to see
young ladies who are bitter enemies kiss
each other very iiil'ectionatoly, when they
meet ! It reminds us of a man named Ju
das, who lived several years ago ! We like
to sec a fashionable-dressed lady promena
ding tho streets wearing a dress trailing a
yard behind her in the mud it cleans the
streets so nicely ! We like to see a young
man very polite and obliging to other young
ladies, while ho i s scarcely civil to his sister
at home it proves that the lords of crea
tion are devoid of deception. Wo like to
see a man invariably throw a newspaper,
boots and hat in the middle of the lloor, for
his tired wife to pick up it is evident that
lie remembers his promise to ' cherish her !'
We like to sec young ladies keep their jaws
inconstant motion, endeavoring to masti
cate a hugo ball of chewing gum it looks
so lady-like. We like to see a man sport
ing fast horses,while ho owes the printer,
and gives nothing to the minister it looks
honorable ! We like to see a man loaf
around a tavern, while his wife struggles to
keep hunger away from the little ones 1 It
shows he believes in women's rights.
-On tho 24th ult., the
on tho Pennsylvania
railroad, made a narrow escape from being
precipitated down an almost perpendicular
bank into a deep mountain ravine, near
Kittaning Point. A rock had slid down
and lodged on the track on which the train
was ascending tho mountain. A little boy
by the name of Kehoe, under ten years of
age, discovered it and by some means got
hold of a rag and by persistingly signaling
the approaching train stopped it. The no
ble conduct of tho little boy, no doubt, sav
ed many lives and limbs, and a most de
structive smash up of the train. Ho should
be gratefully remembered by all for his gal
As a Lady, tho wife of a respectable citi
zen of this place, was returning from a
sale in tho country, on Tuesday evening,
about sunset, neared tho fair ground, she
was attacked by a negro, who knocked her
down, breaking one of her fingers and
otherwise injuring her and attempted to
commit an outrage on her person. Before
ho had time to accomplish his hellish de
sign, Mr. Park Henderson and a colored
man, who were near by, hearing her cries,
came to her assistance. Tho negro ran,
but was finally captured near Henderson's
mill, and taken to jail, lie gave his name
as John Myers. Twenty years in the peni
tentiary is too mild a punishment for a de
mon of this kind. Carlisle Herald.
A Singular Case. Tho Harrisburg Daily
Topic says : there is a rather singular case
in this city, which should claim tho atten
tion of our medical men. We are informed
upon good authority, that there is a man
now lying ill hero who oh last Friday
evening was discovered to bo in an un

tinued ever since. Whether it is the result
of some narcotic or other agent, we do not
know. Wo only state the fact that ho has
been in a comatose condition for nearly
six days, taking but little nourishment,
and, as far us wo can learn, getting noither
better nor worse. What is the cause of all

Special Correspondence of The Times.
IIaurisduwi, April 2, 1870.
Mr. Editor The doings of another week
of legislation is to be recorded, and I must
confess that I cannot conscientiously renew
the charge I formerly made against, both
Houses, that of tardiness. Everything,
now, seems activity and "Presto Change."
Whatever bills could not succeed before for
want of time, now slide through with tho
rapidity of lightning. Tho Senate seems
to have found a "mare's nest" in tho Ap
propriation Bill and ask for a conference
committee. In the Houso, your member,
Milliken, read in place and had passed a
bill removing tho Harrisburg Stock Yard
from this place to Perdic in your (Perry
county.) Tho Border Raid Bill was dis
posed of for this session at least by a mo
tion to indefinitely postpone which carrricd
almost unanimously sixteen voting nay.
(.'apt. G. W. Skinner Franklin, inado an
eloquent and powerful speech in favor of
the passage of the bill. Ho was highly com
plimented by all his friends vho were present.
An amendment to the present registry law,
granting colored persons privilege to register
tho same as white voters was passed. A'l
act to incorporate tho Juuiati V.itloy Fire
Insurance Company passed tho Homo unan
imously. I understand several prominent
citizens of Perry are among tho corporators.
To-day a national salute was fixed from
Capital Hill for tho purpose of announcing
to tho good people of this State that (lie
fifteen tli amendment to the National Con
stitution has become a realized fact. Quite
a number of the newly mado citizens hon
ored tho occasion with their presence and
seemed to enjoy it hugely. Pun..
