Hoggish Trick. A few nights ago
some scamp took a hog out of the pen be
longing to John Clouacr, In Centre twp.,
and killed it. The head, the thief bid in a
rank of wood belonging to Mr. Meek, a
short distance away, i with tbe probable
intention of returning for it at another
'; Sudden Death. Mrs. Comp, wife of
Samuel Comp, a resident of Carroll twp.,
died very suddenly last Tuesday morning.
Mrs. Comp bad eaten her breakfast a short
time previous, apparently ns well as usual,
and was sitting on the lounge combing
ber hair when ehe suddenly fell forward
and died almost instantly.
Upset. On Thursday evening a sleigh
belonging' to Mr. Isaao Ilollenbaugb, was
upset a short distance above town by
striking a sled in passing. The occupants
ofjhe sleigh, two young men, were thrown
out, but were not hurt, and the horse came
into town at a rapid rate with the
sleigh upside down and one broken thaft.
A Singular Accident. One evening re
cently a resident of Mt. Kebo, Lebanon
county, came near having his head cut off
in a most singular manner. He was driv
ing a wagon into a yard, and all of a sud
den his neck came into contact with a wire
line that was stretched across his way aad
fastened on each side to the fence. A
deep gash was cut in the mu'a throat, and
had the wire not broken, it would, in all
probability, have torn his whole head off,
as the horse was not one ' that could easily
have been stopped. Tbe wire was a patent
clothes line. , . .
Badly Injured. An' employ or the rail
road company named Josiah Fickes, of
Newport, was badly injured ut the waste
weir below Huntingdon, few days since,
where he was employed at work on
bridge. In company with several other
employees he was handling timber when
two trains from opposite directions bore
down upon him. One of the engines struck
a piece of timber which hit Fickes and
knocked him a considerable distance from
the track, breaking his shoulder blade and
otherwise injuring him.

' Accident. Last week Rev. 8. E. Her
ring, pastor of . the Lutheran church, met
with an accident which might have result
ed very serious. Mr. II. was spending the
day with Mr. (Samuel Noes, -and about four
o'clock in the afternoon, he complained of
being uncomfortably warm, and walked to
the parlor door for the- purpose of ventila
ting, when he became dizzy, fainted and
fell to tbe pavement, striking his bead
against the door, which resulted in a severe
brnlse of tbe scalp from which -the blood
flowed freely. Dr. was called in and
tbe wound was properly dressed. Mr.
Herring by evening was able to conduct
the services in progress- at his church.

Supposed Duel Two Boys Shot. The
York Telegram of Tuesday says : We
have just received the particulars of a
supposed due between two colored boys,
which took place in the vicinity of Fawn
Grove, ' this county, on Buaday evening.
The ages' of the boys were fourteen') "and
sixteen years respectively. It appears
that they were gunning and on their re
turn home quarreled, which resulted in
the supposed duel. As neither of the par
ties could speak after the occurrence defi
nite information cannot be obtained. Dr,
Griffith, who attended them, states that
tbey were both shot In the facei They both
died yesterday morning.

Interesting to Witnesses. Here is a case
- which may specially interest several liti
gious parties, as well as possessing Infor
mation of a general character. The Centre
Reporter says ; A witness, James Bell,
had been subpoenaed to attend court at
Bellefonte and, refused to attend on an at
tachment, but " was afterward ' taken
by the deputy sheriff. Judge Mayer having
decided that the witness having demanded
his costs at time pf service, and it, having
been refused or not paid, he could not be
held for the cost of attachment, nor had the
court a right to issue an attachment in the
case.' This settles the, vexed ' question of
compulsory attendance, and establishes
the fact in law that no witness is obliged
to attend in a civil case until his costs have
been paid in advance. , In criminal cases
the law may be different, as the common
wealth is supposed to be good for the

, Cumberland County. From tho Cum
berland county papers of last week, we
copy the following :
t The Newville Star, in referring to the
burning of Mr. McKee's barn, the light
from which was seen in that place says :
V On the same evening a brown maie with
saddle and bridle but no rider came to the
premises of Mr. Glenn, North East of
town, for which as yet no owner has boon
found. ' Whether this circumstance has
anything to do with the burning, remains to
be discovered. The animal appeared about
three hours after the fire.
t The Carlisle Volunteer mya i The shovel
ing brigade, composed of tramps recruited
from the precincts of the county jail, by
Sheriff Totton, made the snow fly from the
sidewalks around that institution on Bun
day. The roofs and towers were also
stormed, and a violent onslaught made on
the fleecy coat of old King Winter. On
Monday tbe brigade was again formed in
line, and marched to the diamond, where
they continued the good work of most
ellectually cleaning things around tbe
squares. This is a move iu the right di
rection. If these tramps desire lodging and
and living at the expense of the county, it
is but right and proper that they should
render an equivalent therefor. " Let the
good work go on."
t On Friday last, Mr. David Bhoaffer, of
uicictnson township, met with a severe ac
cident. He started to the mountain in the
morning with a four-horse team for a load
of wood and while there his horses ran off.
Mr. Sbeaffer being unable to manage them
was thrown from tbe saddle horse and the
wagon passing over him broke his right leg
and left arm, and receiving other injuries.
He was taken to bis borne and Dr. Lange
heine called, who; gave the unfortunate
man the necessary surgical attention. Ho
is doing as well as could be expected.
' On Monday night the store of Mr. J. II .
Paul, at Middlesex, was broken into and
robbed. Mr. Paul was awakened ak two
o'clock by a lady in the adjoining house;
thinking it was imagination and not hear
ing any noise, he paid no attention, but
again laid down. One hour afterwards he
was again called, and this time the robbers
were leaving with their plunder. Mr P.
flied after them, and then mounted his
horse and, ' accompanied by young Mr.
Heagy, started in pursuit and overtook
them, though he was obliged to Ore after
them again. They were lodged in jail on
Tuesday morning, giving the names of
nmitb and Myers, "bummers. lis not
likely they will go on a similar errand very
soon. The ringleader is still at largo.
Two bags full of goods were recovered.
Jnnlata County. From the Mifllintown
papers we copy the following : "
On the night of the 24th ult., the spring
house of Samuel I). Kopner, in Turbett
township was robbed. 1 he next morning
the following letter was found in the spring
house. The name affixed to the letter and
the name of the person to whom the letter
was addressed, we do not publish :
Dear : I now let you know the
reason I did not come the time I said I
would. The snow I thought would betray
us. I could not walk so fur, and it was too
bard and cold to leave tny inule stand out
in the woods all night ; but I am coming
down on the 24th of this month, then we
will go for the butter we talked of the other
time I was there. You must burn this
letter ; leave no one living 'see it fur God's
sake, as it would betray us. I am coming
down with the wagon, thea. Lean take the
rest of that corn you said you stole for me.
I will give you twenty-five cent per bushel
for all you can get fur me. - Tbe next time
I come I , want you .to send the girls io

The new chnrch in Patterson, belonelne
to the Evangelical Association, was dedi
cated on Sunday, December 13th. The
services were - impressive, and 'were con-
duoted by the pastor, Itev. W. B.-Soibort,
assisted Dy tne rrosiding Jailor, Itev. A. S.
Keeser, and itev. Zaohariah Uornbereor.
The dedicatory sermon was preached by
the lost named gtntleman,and was thorough
aud able. The subjoct was " Leaven," aud
was handled so masterly as to leave noth
ing unsaid, lhe collection amounted to
four hundred and fifteen dollars. .
The building committee performed their
work in a very satisfactory manner. Mr.
Soibert is entitled to great credit for his
activity and determination in this enter
prise. But for him the villago would be
without a place wherein to worship. The
contract for tbo foundation was niado May
22nd, 1874, ' and tho church dedicated as
stated above. The cost of tho building
was 1 3,200.
On Tuesday nicht the family of Mr.
Cloyd Parker, residing on Third street,
narrowly escaped suffocation by tho coal
gas escaping from the register used in heat
ing their bed-room.
At a meeting of the members of Pres
byterian church of Mifllintown, bold on
Saturday last, to consider tbo propriety ot
separating from the Lost Creek chargo,
resolutions were adopted favoring tho divi
sion, and that a memorial be sent up to the
next regular meeting of the Presbytery
asking a division.
E9"Mr. Joseph Beck, of Whito Deer
township, Union county, bad a fearful fight
with a she bear. While out hunting he
came across a tree that he Imaginod con
tained coons. He cut the tree down and
a bear came out and commenced an attack
upon him. He was several times iu bor
clutches, but his dog came bravely to his
rescue. At last he killed the animal and
found that she had three cubs, which he
also secured. If it had not beeu 'for his
dog, Beck said he would have been killed
by the ferocious boar.
