F. E. Spinner. Treas'r U. S.
Washington, June 14th 1870.
Feasting at Funerals. We heartily en
dorse the following remarks, which we find
in an exchange and hope the time will
soon come when the practice will be en
tirely abolished, as it already is, except in
a portion of this state.
"The practice of feasting at funerals,
after the burial of the dead, is one of long
standing in many parts of our State, but
its propriety and example of late years
have been questioned, and the practice is
gradually being abandoned. To those
who do not join in this old-time custom it
seems particularly reprehensible for tho
frieuds and acquaintances of the family
just afflicted by death, and mourning the
loss of a dear one, to have their sorrows
and afilictions broken in upon by a host of
hungry visitors, whose only motive, in
many instances, in attending tho funeral is
we doubt not, to feast at the expense of
the afllictct To turn a house of mourning
into one of feasting, is, we think, much
out of placo and should not be encouraged.
Duucanuon Items. Monday night of
last week, two chaps, while under the in
fluence of liquor took advantage of Mr.
John Wister's absence, and entered his
house for the purpose of having a spree at
Johuie'8 expense. Having received from
his private stock some good brandy, they
concluded to try his champagne ; and,
while doing so were surprised at the sudden
and unexpected return of Mr. W., who,
taking in the situation of affairs at a
glance, ordered them to vacate, which they
did without muoh hesitancy. Mr. W.
showed them to the gate, relieved them of,
and poured out the supply which they had
scoured for their morning' bitters,' and
sent them on their way rejoieing(?) ' Next
time they go on a champagne 6pree, we
suggest that they go supplied with the ne
oessary aparatus for opening it, as Mr.
W 's carpet (not his head) was left 'swim
ming in champagne.'

Fiendish Outrage. A fiend in human
shape, named James Long, whose pa
rents reside in Mount Union, on Tuesday

taken to the Mifflin county jail, to await his
trial, the deed having been committed near
the lattcrplace. Ho is about 18 years of
age. The life of the child upon whom tho
injury was inflicted was despaired of.
A Warning. A lady residing in Charles
