A Happy Couplx. On Sunday last, a
man and woman, husband and wife, got
on a high old corn-juice batter in Johns
town. The woman, ia her frenzy, at
tempted to commit suicide by drowning.
She was not successful ia her attempt,
however, for some persons near by fished
her out before she could become thor
oughly water-soaked. After she had been
resuscitated, she started ia quest of her
liege lord, who by thi time wa3 missing.
She found him ia the "jug," behind the
bars, where he had beea ensconced for
kicking up a distuttance. Failing to coax
the oScers into discharging him, she
next tried the virtue of scolding, but was
eve a more unsuccessful ia this thaa in
the other, for the eScers, not relishing
her style of argument, unceremoniously
silenced her by seeding her to keep her
husband company. The twain were kept
over night at the expense of the borough
corporation, fined, and thea discharged.

Change. 'Times change, and men
change with them " but there , is no
change ia the long-established reputation
of the mercantile establlshxaent ef A. A.
Barker, Ebensburg. It is now, as it was
always, reckoned among the cheapest and
fairest houses ia town cne where it is a
pleasure to barter or bay. Ii the reader
has never had dealings there, he has been
strangely indifferent to his own interests.
Bet we don't believe there is a man living
within fifteen miles of town who is sot a
customer of Mr. B.
Why Did He Do It ? Some person,
with the fear of neither God nor the law
ia his heart, robbed a tailor shop ia Hol
lidaysburg of a quaatity of ready-made
clothing the other night. Why did he
do it ? If he had come to Ebensburg aad
visited J. M. Thompson's store, he could
have bought ready-made clothing, as good
aa the best, at prices so low as to make
it no inducement to steal.
Selling Orr at Reduced PaicEs.
Messrs. Mills & Davis are selling off their
present stock of goods at reduced prices,
preparatory to rsrnoving to their new
store-room, now nearly completed, oa the
corner of High and Center streets. Per
sons desiring bargains ought to call oa
them, and soon. Call to-day !
