that he visited AHentown with a friend

distance from the city, where they were
ushered into a room, in which there was
a desk and four or five office chairs. The
steerer bhowe.l them a box filled with
crisp counterfeit notes and offered them
IL.0J0 in exchange for f 100. Will's friend
concluded a bargain for 1,000 of tbe green
goo fs, which the shsrper had placed in a
small box and placed it on top of the
writing desk. The bunco man then ask
ed him to elgn a receipt and raised the

a secret bole in the wall while tbe desk

they expected to get the Counterfeit and
turn it over to the police, but when they
could show nothing but blank paper,
they were directed by the AHentown au

Hereafter all adhesive documentary
aud prorrietary internal revenue stamps
must, when used, be cancelled by writ
ing or stamping on them tbe initials of
the user and the year, month and day of
the month in which it is used. This is
the lntest ruiii:g of X. B. S30U, United
States Commissioner of Internal Reve
nue, of Washington, D. C, a copy of
which has been received by Collector
Hershey, of Harrisburg. This is an
amendment of a former ruling which
stated that all adhe.-ive stamps must he
cancelled by having the initials of the
person using the stamp aad the year in
which it was used either written or
stamped upon it- The new ruling went
into effect January 1, 1W
The reason for the change is that many
stamps were taken from discounted notes,
or from wrappers, bottles, etc, and used
over and over, thus evading the law. Un
der the new ruling of Mr. Scott it will be
impossible to use a stamp more than
once, as the cancelled stamp bas the ex

again any day thereafter would be a mis

by hor law ol 174 the mortality diminish

cases,-moreover, oxur almost exclusive

If it were true, continued Prof. Bizzoz-
zero, that a good vaccination does not
protect from smallpox we ought (o find in
smallpox epidemics that the disease dif
fuses itself in the well vaccinated no less
than iu the uon vaccinated countries
But it is not so. Ii 170 71, during the
Pranco-Geriuau war, tbe two peoples in

optionally, but its army completely re-
vaccinated, while the French (popula

The suit was one of the tnoet important
that has come before tbe Fayette courts
within recent years, the amount involv
ed, it is aaiJ, being about for).). The
hearings were held last winter, and con
tinued for weeks. Iu bis bill Wolfe re
cited atleug b the exleusive dealings be
' sud Augustine bad, alleging that the lat-
ter secured his entire confidence, which
he abused by involving him in numerous
bad land deals, by which plaintiff st-xod to
lose thousands of dollars unless the courts
came to his relief. He alleged that whils
a'-tiug as bis sgent Augustine transferred
many farms and tracts of timber in So in
erset and Fayette counties. Wolfe claim
ed he never saw many of these tracts, but
re Hod upon Augustine's statements as to
their value. When this sort of business
bad gone on for a long tim. Wolfe says
he learned that he bad been duped by his
agent, w ho, he discovered, bad unloaded
upon him enormous real estate holdings-
at inflated prices, tbe price psid, it was
alleged, being in some instances double
aud treble the real value of the property.
A portion of the consideration, Wolfe
claimed, was paid by him in cash, aud
for the balance be gave notes amounting
f'to nearly fKi.000, on which Augustine se
cured judgments. Wolfe asked the court
to set aside these transfers and compel
Augustine to satisfy all tbe notes and
judgments held against the plaintiff.
These prayers were In a large measure
granted by.Refere Head, his'decision be
ing that all the dealings between the
plaintiff and tbe defendant be undone,
that Wolfe roconvey to Augustine all the
property in dispute, and that in turn Au
gustine cancel ail the notes and satisfy all
tbe judgments held against Wolfe. There
are also some minor matters to be adjust

B. W. Cummings, a Democrat, who was
re-elected distriit attorney of Schuylkill
county by 5,0iH) majority, refused b qual
ify for the office, and resigned.
Mr. Cummings was so beset by candi
dates for places under him, by psliti:ians,
bangers -on and "original Cummings
men," that be resigned to rid himself of
their eeaseliss importunities. The best
of these oflice-seekers are bound to Mr.
Cummings by strong personal ties, yet to
appoint them would have been impolitic
and unpopular, and to d.toui bis adminis
tration to failure. In his dilemma he an
nounced some appointments, recalled
them, made others, and finally cut the
gordian knot by resigning.
Mr. Cummings was to have taken the
oath at the opeuing of the January term
of the criminal court. To the intense as
touisbment of tbe many public officers
and lawyers in the court r.suu presiding
Judge Pershing read Mr. Cummings' loi

ted by place-seekers stated that hislalxirs
in the campaign bad produced in bim a
state of nervous debility, and that it might
prejudice his health to till theoille. But
every one kuows the real cause of his
resignation. He is rich ami of aa influ

Perhaps tbe greatest mechanical feat of
tbe century bas been the raising of some
of the Spsnish warships which were ap
parently shot to pieces at Santiago. It
seemed utterly impossible to float them
because of tbe terrible dam ge Inflicted
by our guns, but tbe task has been ac
complished. Diseases of tbe bluod,

health so that there appears to he no
chance of recovery. But when Hostetter s

All precedents w ere broken at the even

date for final adjournment, April 3th.
After a short session on We Inrs.lHy both
branches adjourned to meet on Thursday,

done until tbe 17th, hen the two houses
meet in j iut convention for the purpose
of balloting for a United States Senator.
It is probable that tho Hoi;se com 01 it-
tees will not be announced until after the
inauguration of Governor Stone, w hich
takes place on the 17th.
Six regimouts of the national guard
wi.l attend the inauguration of Governor
Stone, and imitations have been issued
to President McKiuley and the niemlicrs
of his cabinet, members of tbe Senate
and Congress, the judges of the State and
other d gnilariea. A public reception to
meet the Governor and Mrs. Stone will
bs held st the executive mansion ou the
evening alter tbe inauguration.
The convening of tbe legislature and
the Senatorial caucus to nominate a suc
cess r to M. S. O-iay attracted a largo
crowd if politicians from every county
in tbe State to Harrisbuig. Ths fusiou
isis came w ith baskets, prepared to take
home everything that would drop in the
shapa of patronage, anvl were anxious to
make a liberal divide w ith tbe DeiUocrats
in case they should win. General Koontz
was besieged with applicants for minor
ojices by tbose weak enough to believe
that he would lie chosen to preside over
the House, but when the hungry bench
men learned that tbe old fusion ist's
chances bad gone glimmering at the be
hest of Wanny they were wi'Jiug to en

and Philadelphia, and they were so well
satisfied that thy resolved to g np
against Quay in adesperate struggle. First
it was decided for the oh ious re asoo that
the ciiy bosses have too much at stake,
that Koontz inut be retired from the
Speakership race, and that amiable gen
llemtn, who bad I wen . spieiting with
"Jim" Guffey and other Democratic Ikws

Tbe exterior of the new capitol closely
resembles a brewery or factory in its pres

baa been made comfortable for the mem
