Fatal Injuries. On Friday afternoon, a
number of railroad workman attempted
to get on a moving coal train near the Ma
rys villa bridge, when one man, named Mo
nahan, fell in such a position that the train
ran over both his legs, causing Buch inju
ries that he survived only a few hours.
The deceased was a resident of Ilarris
burg. Sudden Death. On Morning last, an in
quest was held by Esq. Leot on tho body of
Betsy Mathers, an aged lady, of the Loop,
in Frankstown twp., Blair county, who was
found doad in her barnyard, on the evening
previous. Verdict of the jury, wa s that she
came to her death from natural causes.
As buckets were found near her, it is sup
posed she was on her way to milk the
. cows. Her death, no doubt, resulted from
apoplexy or a disease of the heart.
A singular coincidence in this case, is
the fact, that hor husband, James Mathers,
was found dead some eleven years ago,
near the same place, and a jury returned a
similar verdict in his case, as was returned
In hors. Register.
Fatal Accident. An accident occurred
early Saturday morning at the saw-mill,
near the Hummelstown railroad station, re
sulting in the death of a young man nam.
ed Deeter, b rother-in-law of Mr. Rhen, one
of the employees. He came to the mill
the previous evening, with the intention of
sleeping there that night. In the morning
ho was awakened at an early hour, and
dressed himself preparatory to starting out
on a hunting excursion. By some means,
unknown, he was. caught by his clothing in
the main shaft of the machinery, which
was being rapidly revolved, and when dis
covered, and the mill slopped, a few min
utes afterward, it was found that he was
horribly mangled. His right leg was bro
ken in two places, his shoulders and arms
broken and lascerated, and his back bad
ly injured, Ho was removed to his home,
where he lingered in Intonso suffering about
four hours after the accident, when death
came to his relief. State Journitf. , : ;

' Renova, Oct. 81, 1870.
Mr. Editor Dear Sir As it may be in
teresting to the readers of the Times, to
know what the improvements in this part
of the State are, I will give them a descrip
tion of this place and its improvements.
Renovo is situated on a small piece of table
land between the ranges of the Alleghany
mountains, on the north bank of the west
branch of the Susquehanna river, 145 miles
west by north-west from Harrisburg. The
improvements are the workshops of the P.
and E. R. R., this being head quarters of
the nrst and second divisions ot the road.
The place contains from 1,000 to 2,000 in
habitants, and is rapidly improving. There
are 85 private buildings and one Odd-Fellow's
Hall in the course of erection at the
present time. The place contains 11 dry
goods and grocery stores, 8 hotels, 8 shoe
stores, 4 merchant tailors, 8 barber shops,
2 meat stores, 2 oyster saloons, 2 bakeries.
8 milliner stores, 1 jewelry store, 8 church
es, 5 publio schools and 1 lumber mill.
The Presbyterians had a very fine fair in
the basement ot thoir church, which prov
ed very satisfactory to all that were there ;
the house boing crowded to its fullest ca
pacity every night. Tho fair lasting one
week. One of the novelties was a two-
horse-nower stationary engine, which was
made by a machinist for the benefit of tho
fair. A Witness.

ton cents per week for tobacco.
