- Stop It. The dangerous practiee of
throwing waste paper on the streets
should be stopped, either by the goad
aense of those who unthinkingly do it
or br an ordinance promptly enforced.
There is nothing so certain to scare
horses as old newspapers, or other
scraps flying in the streets on a windy
day. It would be better to reform this
practice at once before some terrible
runaway accident is caused by It.
Take a Thought. The election of
borough officers is beginning to attract
considerable attention. Just now it is
important to look about for staunch
and reliable temperance and christian
men, so as to avoid in a week or two
picking up those who seem all right,
but have been "converted" for the oc
casion. We want men elected to office
this spring who will make efficient ten
pe ranee laws, and then enforce them.

. A Youthful Follower of"G. W.
A good little boy out west undertook
to come the G. Washington on his
mother in this way: He cut oS the
cat's bead with the traditional hatchet,
and then hid the defunct feline in the
meal barrel. When the old lady went
for meal to make the "hoe cake" for
the frugal morning repast she discov
ered that cat and interviewed her little
son. He said, aI did it, mother, with
my little hatchet, but I'll be swizzled
if I caa tell the whole truth about this
little affair." Now most mothers would
have kissed that brave, truthful lad on
his noble brow and kept right on using
the meal out of that barrel just the
same, but this one didn't. She said.
"Come across my1 lap, my son; come
across my lap." He came, and (or
awhile there rose a cloud of dust from
the seat of his trousers that effectually
hid the son from view, and the old wo
man now sparts goggles and is lavish
in the nse of Pettit's eye salve. That
coed little boy had peppered the seat
The Tempebaxcb Ckusade. Since
our last issue the movement has been
gaining ground rapidly in strength, and
although it has many opponents yet,
we can truly say that the ladies have
to-day a iar larger number of lriemls
and sympathisers than ever before. We
are rejoiced to see that many of our
citizens, who had hitherto not given the
moral aupport in the crusade against in
temperance, whisky and beer selling in
our town, which they should have giv
en from the first, have changed their
views upon this question of vital im
portaace, and have come out boldly on
the side of temperance, and are now
using their influence to put down this
cursed evil in our midst. Public opin
ion is demanding that these places of
iniquity be closed, and this demand is
growing stronger ever day. It is not
simply confined to our town, but the
people of the county are loud In their
demands that this soul-destroying traf
fic shall be done away with. Thursday
and Friday the prayer meetings were
kept up, and the ladies, notwithstand
ing thw storm and bitter cold, held their
usual meetings upon the streets, but
without receiving any satisfactory an
swer from the saloon keepers. The
parties who still hold out and refuse to
give up, are Schuler, Hose, Fritz and
Schnorr, the latter selling only ale,
beer and wines.- On Friday evening a
Mass Meeting waa held in Town Hall,
which was one of the best and most ef
fective meetings yet held. The Hall
was crowded to its utmost capacity. The
meeting was opened with prayer, after
which Kev. W.J. Sharpe made an ex
cellent address, dealing in stern facts
and practical thoughts. The next
speaker was Hon. D. S. TJhl, who made
one of his stirring appeals. His re
marks were effective, and portrayed
the direful effects of the traffic, the ap
palling waste of life, property and re
sources caused by it, and pointedly ex
hibited the beartlessness of the rum-
seller, and the misery of his victims.
D. F. Swing, Esq., was the next to ad
dress the audience, and drop a word of
encouragement to the ladies in their
glorious work. His remarks were prac
tical and interesting. Next came G.
W. .Everett, Esq., who always has a
word to say on this question. As usual
bis words of encouragement were
thankfully received. His whole heart
is in the work. Mr. Badgley then ad
dressed the audience in his pleasing,
agreeably and earnest manner. The
meeting was a grand one, and one like
ly to do much good.
The spirit of Friday evening's meet
ing was carried home and nourished by
private prayer, and the consequence
was that on Saturday morning the
meeting held for prayer in the Presby
terian church was very largely attended.
The day wasjileasant and a larger dele
gation of ladies were out than had been
since the beginning of the crusade. Af
ter adjournment of the morning meet
ing, the ladies formed themselves into
three bands, the smaller of which led
off followed soon after by the others.
When they saw the small band ap
proaching the saloon keepers and their
friends began to laugh and feel good,
thinking that the affair was dwindling
away. But their tune was soon changed
when another and another still larger
company made its appearance until a
hundred and eleven ladies were be
sieging the different saloons. When
one company got tired at one place, an
other would relieve them. Thus they
kept it up from morning till night al
ternating from time to time. The scnee
was one never witnessed before in our
town. Hundreds of people from the
country, who had so often heard of
these curbstone prayer meeting but had
never seeu them, lined our streets, and
gathered round the supplicants. The
feeling was intense. Men who hither-
cared nothing for temperance were
ready and willing to do almost anything
order to put down the traffic in our
town. The influence of that day's
work has been widely extended. Hun
dreds who were indifferent to the sub
ject went home convinced that it was
the work of God,- and will henceforth
use their influence in the advancement
the cause. At noon, the ladies took
lunch at John Korn's rooms, and at
Weston's. No signatures to the pledges
were obtained, but some of the liquor
dealers gave evidence that they were
serely troubled. One even acknowl
edged that he bad gone through thir
teen battles in the army, but bad never
passed such adavyss. Saturday was.
Another told some of his friends on
Sunday morning that he was wakened
three times in the night, thinking he
heard the ladies sing "Jesus loves
me." Our community is becoming
thoroughly aroused, and it is only a
question of time as to closing up of all
these places. It must and will come
sooner or later. It cannot be otherwise,
and the best thing these men could do
would be to submit manfully. One or
two insults were offered to the ladies by
couple of young . men from the coun
try, but they were promptly arrested
by the Marshal, who - by the way is the
best Marshal Miilersburg has had for
several years. They were released again
after acknowledging that they had been
put up to it, and promising not to do so
agalu.. The ladies" deserve -the highest
praise and honor for their zeal and self
sacrifice in this work.' On Sunday even
ing Bev. W. J. Sharpe preached an ex.
cellent discourse in the M. E. Church
on the subject of Temperance. The
audience was very large. ' On Monday
morning the prayer meeting was held
in the M. E. Church, r and although the
day was wet the ladies went out in two
bands again and remained in front of
the saloons until four o'clock in the af
ternoon. One touching feature of the
street services on Monday was the sing
ing of a band of little girls. It was
enough to touch the heart of any man
whose heart was not made of stone.
Some of these men have little ones at
borne, and bow they can stand such
pleadings, is more than we can under
stand. On Tuesday the morning meet
ing was held in the U. P. Church. The
ladies separated in two companies, and
continued the work as on the day be
Quite a largo business meeting was
held in the Disciple Church, on Tues

Fatal Kallroad Accident. On
Friday morning, an Eastern bound
freight train on the A.1G.W.K.E,
met with an accident near the crossing
of the B. A O. B, at the bridge just
west of Main street. The "particulars,
as near as we can gather them, before
going to press, are these :'
As the train on the Atlantic road was
crossing the B. 4 O. track, the switch
engine on the B. fc O. B. R. ran into
the freight train on the Atlantic road,
wrecking the engine and several cars in
the bridge, completely demolishing the
bridge, smashing the engine and cars,
and killing Samuel Myers the engineer,
instantly. He was horribly mangled.
The fireman saved himself by jumping
from the engine. The deceased was
about 30 years of age, and leaves a wife
and several children. He was highly
esteemed by the officers and employees
of the road, and by all who knew him,
and in his death the A. & G. W. R. R.
loses an honest, upright and true en
gineer; his family, a devoted husband
and father. - His remains were carried
to the residence of Mr. Beam, en Mul
berry St, preparatory to their removal
to Gallon, where his family resides.
We learn that the engineer on B. &
O. B. R., who ran into the fated train,
has since been arrested. No blame is
attached to the deceased engineer.
