A Strawberry Far1. Mr. Shannon
Taylor, residing near Alt'oona, is tbe only
man in this section of country that culti
vates a strawberry farm. The farm com
prises an area of about thrcd acres, all
of which is covered with heavily-laden
vines. From ten to twenty bands are
kept constantly employed gathering the
luscious berries. They sell readily at 20
cents per box. It is estimated that the
farm will produco 15,000 boxes this sea
80Q from which it will be seen that Mr
Taylor will make a rather nice thing out
of his three acres of ground. "We men
tion these facts and figures in the hope of
stimulating some of our own farmers to
plant a strawberry farm. Our soil and
climate are peculiarly adapted to the
growing of the berry. True, the cultiva
tion ot such a farm would require much
time and care, but it in thought it would
yield a better percentage at the end of the
season than almost any other possible ag

There can be found at V. S. Barker's

Tobacco. Do you use tobacco in any

cigars, of the different brands, smoking and
chewing tobacco. He is an experienced to

Fourth of July. We print on our
outside to-day a patriotic oration delivered
by Moses Canan, Esq., in Ebensburg, on
the Fourth of July, 1826 forty-one
years ago. It is a eolid, substantial ef
fort, and singularly free from those spread
oagle rhapsodies which mark and mar the
Fourth ot July oratory of these latter
days. Mr. Canan has long gone to his
last account; and of those who listened
to his voice made eloquent on that fiftieth
anniversary of our National Independence
by the theme of his country glory, and
greatness, and prosperity, how many are
with us to-day to hail tho advent of the
ninety-first anuiversiry I
Boro. Ordinances. Tho Burgess
and Town Council of the boro. of Ebens
burg have enacted and ordained that on
and after the 4th inst. no animal of the
porcine genus, commonly called hog, shall
bj allowed to run at large in the streets or
alleys of said boro., under penalty of a
fine of one dollar to be levied on the
owner for each hog so found trespassing.
It is also enacted and ordained by the
same authorities, in very precise terms,
that no horse, mare, gelding, mule, or
jack shall be allowed to run at large in
the streets and alleys aforesaid under pen
alty of a fine of two dollars, &c.
A Contrast. During the month of
May, rain fell on twenty-five of the thirty-
one days. The month of June just closed
was almost totally barren of rain. This
long-continued drought, coupled with a
temperature of tho air of 90, has had
the effect of parching vegetation and of
thoroughly baking the surface of the
earth. Unless rain soon falls, tho conse
quences may be disastrous.
Groceries. Have you ever bought a
bill of groceries from George Gurley7
If you have not, then you are possibly
unacquainted with the fact that he sells
at exceedingly low fates. Indeed, he
asserts that he can undersell any other
grocer in town. To arrive at a knowledge
of the truth of this assertion, call at his
store on High street.
Marble Works. Our friend, Mr.
James Wilkinson, we are glad to hear, is
doing a good business at his marble works
in Loretto. He is a true artist and a good
workman, and deterres success.
Read the following letter from Richard
L. Franklin, Esq.. President of the Yonkers
and New York Fire Insurance Co.:
Orrica Yonkers and New York Fibb Iks.
Co., New York, October 13th, 1866. I tak
pleasure in certifying to the prompt payment
by tbe Hartford Live Stock Insurance Com
pany for the loss by sudden death, of a very
valuable Cow on my farm at Riverdale, in
sured in that Company. This animal (in
connection with my other stock) Was insured
in tbe Hartford Lire Stock Insurance Com
pany, on the 8th inst. and died on the third
day thereafter from a riolent inflammatory
attack, though apprrfntly well the day pre
vious. I received a draft for the amount
from the Company without any discount, by
the next mail after forwarding information of
the loss. I cheerfully recommend the Hart
ford Live Stock Insurance Company, and
woula advise owners of live stock to in
sure therein, for my own experience demon'
strates moU conclusively that ''delays are
dangerous." RICH'D. L. FRANKLIN.
