David Mintz, one of Marienvillo's ex
tensive merchants and business men,
made an assignment on Monday of this

are not informed as to the amount In

business people of his neighborhood that
his assets will far exceed his liabilities,
and that as soon as these can be convert,
ed into cash Mr. Mintz's creditors will
be paid in full, and he will be able to re
sume business with a good balance to
his credit. Henry Brock of Buffalo, N,

Our Stato is needing more room for
lunatics and crazy people. Dr. II. M.
Wetherill, of the State Hoard of Charities,
says: "Our state insane asylums are
filled bevond their capacity. It will bo
absolutely necessary for tho next Iegis
laturo to increase tho accommodation lor
tho indigent insane. There uro in the
aggregate about G.tKJO patients in llio six
State hospitals, and there are anywhere
lrom 1,000 to 1,500 iu the five hospitals
exclusive of tho Wernersvillo institution
for the chronic insane in excess of acorn
fortable capacity." The completion of
the Polk Institution will, to a certain ex
tent, relievo the pressure on these insti
tutions, the Franklin Reu s thinks.
The "army worm" of which thoro is
just now a good deal found in tho papers,
has not as yet been reported in this im
mediate vicinity, although 'tis said he's
working this way. The Marienville Kx-
pre of last week says the pest has
struck that section "and is getting in
his work In dead earnest. Tho worms
are repulsive looking, but they have a
faculty of getting over tho ground at a
lively gate, leaving In their wake devas-
ted fields and gardens. As far as is
known there Is no way of checking the
ravages of the worm, consequently grow
ing crops are at their mercy. They eat
and dostroy most everything but hem
lock bark and lumber. The damage they
have done in this and neighboring coun
ties will reach into thousands of dollars."
The dog-day season will soon be on.
Dog-days are so called from the fact that
the rising of the dog star (Sirius) is dur
ing the period beginning on Friday last,
coincident with tho rising of the sun. To
the ancients the heat of tho season was
connected with the appearance in the
morning of Sirius, tho greatest and
brightoBt of the heavenly bodies. They
considered the dog star as raging, and
gave the time tho appellation of the dog
days. In those times they thought the
star had a bad effect on dogs, and in
Greece there was a special festival for the
killing of dogs during the season. By
the procession of the equinoxes the ris
ing of Sirius has gradually become later,
and in a few thousand years it will take
place in the depth of winter.
The Ploasantvillo Record of last week
says, "Tho Fourth of July holiday and
excursions to points outside tho limits of
tho iron clad license law of this common
wealth offered irresistible opportunities
to lovtng lassies and gallant swains to
take upon themselves the marriago vows.
Pleasantville and vicinity furnished its
quota of candidates for the matrimonial
yoke, first of whom we may mention
II. F. Connelly and Miss Jennie Botts
ford. Whon the excursion train to Cel
eron reached its destination, Doc and his
prospective bride made their way direo
tly to Jamestown, and with the least pos-
siblo delay were made man and wife.
Tbey had scarcoly started out for a brief
honeymoon when they met James Wood
cock and Miss Pearl McGregor who were
"looking for a place" wherewith to cast
their lot for either better or worse. They
were directed to the nearest proper au
thority, and were soon revelling in con
nubial bliss. All are well known young
people of this neighborhood. May joy
and happiness attend one and all through
life's journey." .

Army Worm Heading' This Way.
The army worm is reported to be at
Youngsville, Warren county, whore It
has mowod down fields of oats and othor
This famous worm Is a little ovor au
inch long, of a gray or dingy black color
with stripes of narrow lines of white on
back, and the under surface is of a more
or less greenish color ; the head is
smooth aud yellowish, with two black
lines running from top to mouth. It has
sixteen legs. When in the moth state the
female is said to lay about 750 very small
white eggs, aud these hatch in from eight
to ten days. A circular from Dr. War
ren, State Zoologist, says that the best
means of fighting the worm Is to mow a
wide swath around the invaded field,
then plow a deep furrow with the straight
side toward the part to be protected, "and
at Intervals of a few feot muke holes with
a crow-bar, or dig small pits into which
the worm entrapped in the ditch will full.

Creditors of the II. J. Hopkins Bank
Arranging A Settlement.
A compromise arrangement for a set
tlement with the creditors of the H. J.
Hopkins bank is now being effected,
which looks favorable for all getting dol
lar for dollar of thoir deposit or loan.
Mr. Hopkins called his creditors to
gether last Wednesday afternoon, at the
opora house, and explainod clearly to
thorn the situation, gave a list of his as
sets and liabilities and asking that he bo
given a chance to scttlo his banking af
fairs in a manner that would not entail
too great sacrifice either upon his credi
tors or himself. His liabilities showed a
sum total of $00,000, while the assets at
what ho considered a conservative esti
mate, amounted to between $130,000 and
tl40,0ofl. Mr. Hnpkins asked for three
years in which to adjust matters.
The ireditorH, of whom there are 150,
were represented bv Attorney Bvlos, of
Titusville. Mr. Byles told the creditors
that there wore throe courses, any ono of
which might be legally pursued in ef
fecting a settlement. Tho assignees
could bo instructed to go on and dispose
of the property In tho time and manner
proscribed by law ; Mr. Hopkins could
be given absolute co: trol of the proporty
and allowed to go on and dispose of if as
he saw lit, with the unanimous consent
of tho creditors; or, by thoir unanimous
consent, one or more trustees could be
appointed to act alone or iu conjunction
with Mr. Hopkins, in disposing of It
to the best advantage The feeling
of the meeting was decidedly friendly
toward Mr. Hopkins, aud when the voice
of the meeting was called for, by a stand
ing vote, to decide whether to grant him
an extension of three years or not, nearly
everyone In tho hall arose to their feet.
Mr. ISylos suggested then that a commit
tee be appointed to confer and dosido
which of the different courses to adopt
in making a settlement. A committee
of six of tho creditors was appointed,
and, alter conferring, they decided that
the most equitable adjustment could be
etfocted through the appointment of
trustroos to take charge ot the property,
allowing Mr. Hopkpis to work under
their direction iu disposing of it and set
tling up the accounts. Thomas Maguire
and R. D. Stoeltzing were elected trus'
tees. As this niothod of settlement re
quired a contract, to be signed by all the
creditors, the meeting adjourned to meet
Saturday, in order to give time to draft a
contract iu legal form.
At Saturday's mooting the contract was
presented and signed by all present. Up
to the prosent time not all the signatures
have been secured as some live at a (lis
tance, but so far all who havo been seon
have signed the contract.
The contract provides that all deposits
under $50 be paid immediately, that is,
within a week or two, and all doposits
MxiLSf'O nu4less than $100 be paid in
tnirty or sixty days or w mum lUiyi.j",
small ones are paid as possible. There
are funds sufficient from overdrafts, etc.,
that can he realized upon without much
dolay,to cover these small deposits. Af
ter these aro paid, the larger depositors
will receive pro rata dividends as fast as
reasonable amounts can bo realized from
tho assets, tho time limit being three
years. While some would like the terms
of settlement otherwise, all agree that
the one adopted Is the best possible for
getting full paymont for their claims.

While talking with J. T. Baker the

Chamberlain s medicines sold. Said he.
They are the best sidling articles 1 han
dle; I never hesitate to recommend
them. As to Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, it is
simply superfine. I never think of tak
ing a trip to the mountains, or any
where else, for that matter, without hav
ing a bottle of that remedy with me."
