The largo and enthusiastic meet

SAD CASE OF DUOWXIXG?
We wore informed on Wednesday
last of the melancholy end an old
colored man came to on the 20th of
last month, in Cooper swamp. It
seems that tho old man--whoso name
wc did not learn?had been informed
that he was to be sent to the poor
house, nnd not having a penchant for
that institution, started in the night
away from homo, hoping to find a hos
pitable roof somewhere, under which,
he might rest his aged limbs, nnd
where visions of the poor house and
its public charities would rot stare
him in the face or disturb Iiis declin
ing years. Being weak, he gave out
in his jouruey through tho cold, biting
waters of Cooper swamp, and sank
down to strangle and to die. While
life, however, was yet in his body, ho
was Jbund'j/placed upon a log, and re
quested to remain there until assis
tance could be procured. Mr. Geo
Smoak, upon being informed of the
old niau's situation, harnessed up his
buggy and made all possible baste to'
the spot where tho sufferer wa3. But
help came too \h\te. -The old man
had fallen into the water, again, aud
when picked up Avas stark and cold
in death. It seems that no inquest
has been held over his body.
The Town Council held their regu
lar meeting on hut Tuesday evening
at which were present all of our
venerable Oily Fathers.
Mr. '/.. M. Wolfe's resignation as
marshal was" rend and accepted.
All marshal;- now employed were
discharged from duly after the 15th
instant and the Clerk instructed to
receive applications for said officers,
upon which an election for marshals
will be held.
The Committee on damages to

street were requested to meet and

An ordinance prohioiting Hucks

unanimously,- and the marshals in

Di'SPA RA TB A TTEMPT AT B URG
Early on Wednesday night as Mr.
Ben Lee and Mr. Jimmy Hamilton
were passing the store of Mr. D.
Louts, they discovered that the glass
had been cut from the transom over
the back door of said building, and,
suspecting thacall was not right, halt
ed long enough to satisfy themselvos
that someone was on the inside of the
store. Other parties were at once in
formed of the situation, when tho front
door was opened, and a search made
for the burglar. He was found iu the
pea bin, almost covered up with peas.
After being questioned considerably,
he was taken to jail where he remain
ed until Friday afternoon, when ho
was brought beforo the Town Conn
eil for examination. At this cxamiua
tion he gave his namens John Wil
Hams, and seemed to be perfectly un
concerned as to his situation. The
following is thosubstance of his story,
as told by himself: Was born at
Branchville. Is a son of Abo Wi
litims. Used to belong to Barjh. Knows
but one or two persons down there.
Bcmcmbcrs one Loch. Bought candy
from him wheu a boy. Been iu
Ornrigoburg about eight days. Stayed
with no body. Got into Mr. Louis'
store by ^knocking the glasses out with
his band. Went in there to get money.
Suppose ho meant to steal it it you call
taking what don't bolon g to you steal
ing. Went into back r oom of store
first. Found firo in chimney, and a
match box on mantle pioce. Took
tho match box because he wanted to
strike light to sop by. About this time
heard noise and at onco came to conclu
sion that lie would not be allowed time
to examine the money drawer, and
otherwise inspect Mr. Louis' stock.
Would havo escaped but for tho
darkness. Whenever he would make
for a door, wou'd hit upon a box or
Bimct' ing. While thus perambulating
was arrested and carried to ja.il, &c,
The fellow has a desparate counter
auce, and is no doubt one of a gang in
our midst who live bv stealing. Wc
have a number of policenitn, and it is
to be hoped that they will keep a
sharp lookout. The burglar was
committed io jail to await his trial a*,
the Court of Sessions.
jgy The citizens of this county are
hereby notified that Mr. SchilHcy will
keep open his Photogrph Gallery ou
ly until February 12th. This will be
the last opportunity the people of tho
county will have to get good and care
fully finished pictures of themselves
aud families. Come then and bring
the children along ? Special care
will be taken to please every.one. -1
SCA RCITY OF MONEY?
There is no doubt but the present
condition of all kinds of business and
industry is ..fearfully depressed, and
it behooves every family to look care
fully to their expenses. Winter is
coming on wheu children are liable
to croup, whoopiug cough, etc. Cough
and colds will prevail everywhere,
and consumption, with other throat
nnd lung diseases will carry 01T many.
These diseases should not bo neglect
ed. Doctors bills are expensive, and
we would advise our people to use
Bosehce's German Syrup. It never
has failed. One bottle at 75 cents
will keep your whole family well
during the -winter. Two doses will
relieve any case. Sold in all towns in
the United States, and by your Drug
Call at Dr. J. G. Wannamaker's
and get a pamphlet ami read about
Dr. Clark Johnston's great Indian
blood syrup, the best medicine in
use. Dr. Wannamaker also has the
medicine- for sale at wholesale nnd

ADVICE OR A TIS?

says :?"The Globe Flower Cough
Sjrup has proven a most valuable
