who lived in the house near the iron
bridge, while working in the bark mill
at Osterhout's tannery was drawn
into the chains connected with
the machinery which tore the ilesh al
most entirely off from the back por
tion of his right leg from the knee
down. He was otherwise injured. He
was taken to Dr. Williams' office, and
Dr. Waid and Woodruff called in. In
response to a telegram Doctor Hart
man, of St. Marys, came down on the
mail. On a consultation of tlie phy
sicians it was found necessary to am
putate the leg just above the knee.
This is a peculiarly deplorable case as
the parents of the boy are poor people
and depending on the boy's help to
support the family. Now the labor of
the boy is lost besides the expense at
tendant on the sad accident.

at once arose and followed the thief
who had left the room and endeavored
to go down stairs. The thief was
mistaken in his locution of the sur
roundings, anil instead of going down
stairs he ran into another room where
some girls were sleeping. Mr. Schrum
grasped him by the throat and threw
liini into the room li'.- had just left,
and, gripping a larc Iron stove poker,
stood jiiiurd over the prisoner until
Mrs. Nchrani awoke the bar lender,
and other men about tlie house who at

It is disreputable to gamble at

been considered reputable to gamble

ing. Garfield is only six miles distant
from either well, and instead of Tun
ing the risk of building up a new
house near those wells, it is believed
that Garfield will derive the benefit
of this travel and trade and get a new
lease of life and activity. The owners
of the Warren & Farnsworth Valley
railroad will probably find it to their
interest to extend the narrow-gauge
road from Garfield directly south
about five miles, which will bring
them just midway between tho Reno
and Grandin wells, and near enough
to either for all practical purposes.

wet coal burns better a series of tests
was made recently at Bochum, Ger

and dry bltumlnlous coal In the mak
ing of steam. Washed slack, holding
18 per cent of water and 9.9 per cent,
of ash, evaporated 5.7 pounds of water

NEW YORK, 1883.
More neonle have read The Sun
during the year just now passing than
ever uetore since it was nrst printed.
No other newspaper published on this
side of the earth, has been bought and
read in any year by so many men and
We are credibly informed that
people buy, read, and like The Sun
for the following reasons, among
Because its news columns nresent
in attractive form nnd with the great
est possible accuracy whatever bus in
terest for humankind; the events, the
deeds and misdeeds, the wisdom, the
philosophy, the notable folly, the solid
sense, the improving nonsense all
tne news of tne busiest world at
present revolving in space.
Because people nave learned that in
its remarks concerning persons and af
fairs The Sun makes a practice of tell
ing them the exact truth to the best of
its ability three hundred and sixty
five days in the year, before election
as after, about tlie whales as well as
about the small fish, in the face of dis
sent as plainly and fearlessly as when
supported by general approval. The
nun uas absolutely no purposes to
serve, save the information of its
readers and tlie furtherance of the
Because it is everybody's newspaper.
No man is so humble that Tho Sun is
indillerent to his welfare and his
rights. No man Is so rich that it can
allow injustice to be done him. No
man, no association ot men, is power
ful enough to exempt from the strict
application of its principles of right
Because in nolitics it has fouirht for
a dozen years, without intermission
and sometimes almost alono among
newspapers, tne hglit that has resulted
in tlie recent overwhelming popular
verdict against Robesonism and for
honest government. No mutter what
party is in power, The Sun stands and
will continue to stand like a rock for
the interests of the people against the
ambition of bosses, the encroachments
of monopolists, and the dishonest
schemes of public robbers.
All this is what we are told almost
daily by our friends. One man holds
that The Sun is tlie best religious
newspaper ever published, because its
Christianity is undiluted with cant.
Another holds that it is the best Re
publican newspaper printed, because
it has already whiuned half of the
rascals out of that nartv. and Is nro-
ceediug against the other half with
undiminished vigor. A third believes
it to be the best magazine of general
literature in existence, because its
readers miss nothing worthy of notice
that is current in tlie world of thought.
So every friend of The Sun discovers
one ot its niauy sides that appeals
with particular force to his individual
