JOHN H. I W. C. WESLEY. PROP'BS.
•THE proceedings of the Teachers
Institute has prevented the appearance
of several other matters this week.
AT the opening of the polls yester
day morning the Democrats were first
upon the ground, "to vote early,' but
not "to vote often," we hope. They
seemed to work and act as if they had
a "set up job" for carrying this county.
As generally it takes the election of
ficers of this borough until late in the
night to'complete the count of votes,
we could not delay publication for re
sults. The vote will not be full, but
with about the usual result, judging
at this writing, Tuesday noon.
THE vote in this State for Governor
lost year, was: Republican, 319,490 ;
Democrat, 297,137; Greenback, 81,758;
Prohibition, 3,755; making an aggre
gate of 702,144. This year it is safe
to assume there will be 100,000 votes
less polled, perhaps a greater falling
off. The Greenback vote will not be
a third of what is was last year.
OCTOBER 31st was the anniversary
of the great Reformation, or rather of
the day on which Luther nailed his
celebrated 95 protests to the door of
his church, on Oct. 31, 1517, being 362
years ago. In consequence, on last
Sabbath anniversary sermons were
generally preached in the Lutheran
churches, Rev. Waters, of this place,
preaching a very interesting one in the
English Luthran Church here.
WE have received the first number
of tho Atwood Pioneer, published at
Atwood, Kansas, by the Rev. A. S.
Thorne, formerly of the Millerstown
Review, this county. The paper is
well gotten up and starts out as if
well supported. The old friends of Mr.
Thome here will be well pleased to
hear of his prosperity in the new and
fast growing great State of the West,
Kansas. If papers there flourish, like
all other things seem to do, we look to
hear of success for the Pioneer.
About the first of November the
weather began to change here, finding
us on Monday morning of this week
with two or three inches of snow upon
the ground and the winds blowing.
October had been so mild and pleasant
that the change is the more noticed
Death of Gen. Hooker.
Gen. Joseph Hooker died at his res
idence near New York City, on Friday
last, 31st ult. He had been an invalid
for some time, and his death was not
unexpected. Gen. Hooker, at one time
during the late rebellion, was Com
mander-in-Chief of the Union armies,
being such, we believe, when the bat
tle of Chancellorsville was fought.
He was known as "Fighting Joe
Hooker," was a fine looking officer, and
personally very popular with the men.
His social qualities made him a fa
vorite also with all his associates.
In addition to Pennsylvania elec
tions were held in the following States
on yesterday: New York, Massachu
setts, Maryland, Mississippi, Minne
sota, Wisconsin and New Jersey. The
only State election yet to be held this
year is that of Louisiana, on Dec. 2nd.
As we go to press on Tuesday even
ing of course we can give no returns
this week, but by next week can give
pretty full results. Wo look for Re
publican success in all the Northern
States, excepting perhaps New Jersey,
and for Democratic success in the
Hon. J. P. Wickersham.
We had the pleasure of seeing in
this place last week the gentleman
whose name beads this article. He
came as State Superintendent of our
Common Schools to make an address
before the Teachers' Institute, of this
county, then in session, and on Thurs
day evening last spoke in the Court
House to as large an audience as ever
assembled in that building. His re
marks, contrasting the systems of edu
cation in this country and in Europe,
were interesting, instructive, and lis
tened to very attentively. Dr. Wick
ersham has gained quite a reputation
as an educator and fills the position of
State Superintendent of schools with
great ability and fidelity, ne is a for
cible speaker, and made mauy friends
in this county during his brief visit
here last week.
Death of Senator Chandler.
Senator Zachariah Chandler, of
Michigan, died suddenly in the city of
Chicago last Saturday morning, at the
age of 66 years. He had been ac
tively engaged in the pending elections
of this year and had made one of his
characteristic and able speeches in
that city the evening before. Retir
ing for the night in apparent usual
health, he was found dead upon his
bed the next morning. His sudden
death is therefore a shock to the coun
try. As a Senator and Republican he
was distinguished for his boldness in
manner and fearless advocacy of his
principles. His bold and fierce denun
ciation of his opponents gave him the
prominence to which he had attained.
He was said to be honest as a man,
and, with all his zeal for his own
party, had the respect and friendship
of his brother Senators of all parties.
He commenced life in Michigan a
young man without means or much
education, and by an untiring energy
and ambition rose to be one of the
noted political men of the day. >
Bruin Postoffloo Caee.
William Huinnson was tried in the
U. S. District Court, at Pittsburgh,
last week, on a charge of taking $27
from a registered letter mailed at the
Bruin office, Martinsburg, this county.
Humason, it seems, was employed in
the office as an assistant. The testi
mony against him was strong, yet the
jury acquitted him. This acquittal
caused so much surprise to the Dis
trict Attorney that he expressed him
self in very strong terms in relation to
the jurv and refused to try any more
cases before it. We, of course, do not
know whether the jury did right or
wrong, or whether there was any ex
cuse for the indignation of the officer
of the Government at its action, but
have only to say, that in a case of rob
bing a postoffice, an office in which all
are so much interested, great care
should be taken by the Federal Courts
to see that no guilty offender escapes.
THANKSGIVING Day—November 27.
Proceedings of tho Institute for '79
Teachers' Institute of Butler county
met in the Court House, Butler, Oct.
27, 1879. Supt. McKee acting as

Rev. Stauffer led in prayer. The elec
tion of officers being next in order, Mrs.

Sccretarv, Mr. S. M. Croen and Miss
Nannie McJunkin, Assistants, and Mr.
J. H. Murtland, Enrolling Secretary,
and Mr. Jas. H. Berger, Assistant En
rolling Secretary. Gen. E. R. Eckley
was then called upon to deliver the
address of welcome, and responded in
a manner that was appreciated by all
present, After a song by the choir,
Prof. E. A. Angell.of Allegheny City,
Pa., was introduced to the audience,
and spoke at some length on the work
of the Institute and the object of teach
ers attending it, urging them to take
notes of all instructions given, so that
thev might use what best suited their
own cases ; also, of the importance of
requiring pupils to write many ol their
recitations, as an aid to memory, and
as a means of promoting accuracy of
expression; thus developing a good
style of composition. The Professor
gave the following letter as a sample
of incorrect composition:

Music by choir, after which Institute
adjourned to meet at 7, P. M.
Institute met and was called to order
bv the Chairman, Superintendent Mc-
Kee. Opened with a song by the
choir, entitled, "Opening Glee," after
which a paper was read by Mr. Mur
phv, of Freeport, styled the "School
room Journal," and was received with
great applause. Following this, Mr.
George K. Balph, one of the teachers
in the Butler school, delivered an
address particularly to those teachers
young in the profession. Subject,
"How Can I Gain the Ascendency
Over My School." Mr. Balph cau
tioned teachers and parents against
punishing in anger ; secondly, against
punishing too frequently, lest it be
comes considered by the child as a
matter of course, and they will submit
to it in a kind of dogged resignation.
He also cautioned against punishing in
haste, and particularly against real
incapacity. 110 was followed by a
song by Miss Alice Wick, after which
Prof. Angell talked for some time upon
the subject, "The Essentials of the
True Teacher." After ransic by the

TUESDAY MORN [NO.
Meeting opened with Scripture read
ing and prayer by S. M. Croen. Roll
call by Secretary, J. 11. Murtland.
Music" by choir. Question for discus
sion, "Are Public or Private Schools
to be Preferred." Opened by Professor
J. B. Mechling; followed by Messrs.
H. D. Harbison and S. P. Irvin—all
speaking in favor of the public schools.
Prof. 11. K. Shanor spoke of private
schools as necessary for a higher edu
cation than can be obtained in the pub
lic schools, but admitted that public
schools are better for the education of
the masses. Mr. Carson spoke in favor
of public schools. Prof. Angell spoke
next on the question, introducing his
remarks by a quotation from Horace
Greeley, who, upon being asked if he
thought woman's intellect equal to
man's, said: "That depends upon the
man and woman." He (Professor) ap
plied the quotation to public and pri
vate schools, showing that a good
public school is better than a poor pri
vate school an vice versa. He seemed
to think, however, that each has its
mission, and concluded by saying:
"The public school teacher has de
cidedly the advantage of the private
school teacher, in being almost an
Autocrat in his school room, and being
entirely untrainmeled, has the better
chance to do good work.
After the discussion Prof. Angell
continued his talk upon the subject,
"The Written Work of the School."
2. When begin ? As soon as the
child begins to learn.
3. Extent ? Carry it as far as the

the Institute. He proceeded to finish
his remarks of the morning on the sub
ject heretofore mentioned, and then
took up the question under discussion
—"Should uot the study of History
be more encouraged ?" He asserts that
it should, and endeavors to give some
iHtttteir ©ifiawm: s£ate£mk#e 5, IB£9.
plans by which it may be done success
fully. 1. Teachers should prepare
themselves by collecting works of dif
ferent authors, and reading before com
mencing to teach; so as to be thor
oughly informed. 2. They should
discourage the practice of memorizing
words—subjects are what should be
taught and not words. Let the sub
ject be well studied and recited in the
pupil's own language. Recess. Song
| by the Misses Bella Colbert, Emma
Linn and Alice Wick, Miss Bella
Lowrv presiding at the organ. Prof.
J. 11. Young then gave a short biog

upon to deliver his lecture on the sub
ject "Nothing without Labor," in
which he showed the necessity of
labor, especially mental labor, and the
essentials necessary to success with it,
one of which is exercise, the best of
which, said he "is by the use of the
Indian club," and at the same time ex
hibiting two of them. Song by the

Question —"Is the Cheap Literature
of the Age Beneficial to General Mor
ality ?" Opened by J. 11. Murtland.
He made the following points: Ist.
Some of the periodicals have an ele
ment of good, but a preponderance of
evil in the form of sensation, &c. 2nd If
the company you keep is a criterion of
your character the literature you read
is a criterion" of your mind. 3rd. The
teacher can largely control the read
ing of his pupils outside of the school
room. To ascertain what your pupils
read, ask them for a list of papers
taken by the family, aud the last book
read by each, if any. 4th. Cultivate
a taste for reading solid matter, by
reading to them short extracts from
history or from some good paper.
Since reading is the principal source
of acquiring knowledge, strive to im
part a love for the better class of liter
ature. Messrs. Chatham, Rev. Fer

Song by Institute, "Come, Come
Away." Questions for discussion:
"Should not all Punishment be Re
formatory ?" Opened by G. K. Balph.
He unhesitatingly affirms that they
ought to be, but unfortunately, they
too often are not. Many punishments
do more harm than good. It is neces
sary to consider the great end which
all discipline ought to aim at accom
plishing, namely: To reclaim the of
fender. In order to do this we must
always have the. good of our pupils in
view. Mr. Balph was followed by
Messrs. Berger, Moore, McDonald,

who favored the giving of prizes, "al
though" said he, "giving a prize may
create a feeling of envy, but if it is
given justly a scholar may be taught
to rise above such feelings." He was
followed in the discussion by Messrs.
E. McDonald and E. D. Bovanl, who

L. L. D., who was introduced to the

ing that when thus managed the}' are
worth all they cost, and much more
than they cost. That they are of
value socially and in obtaining knowl-
I edge. That here learn new and better
' methods of teaching and governing
their schools. He said that with the
School Boards rest the responsibilities
of managing and having good schools,
since they build the school houses,
select the text books and employ the
teachers. He also said that it was the
duty of Directors to make every en
deavor to bring into the school children
that are not in the habit of attending,
| and that they were bound by law to
visit the schools every month. He
suggested to the teachers that they
have annual examinations at the

of the work of ornamenting the school
grounds. She was followed by Messrs.
W. W. Mechling and S. P. Irvin, Esq.

Some of the teachers who were at
the Institute would have the Directors
connect a graveyard with each school
house, as was inferred from the manner
in which they spoke of capital punish
ments as the proper way to bring
about reformation in the schools. But,
of course, they meant to speak of cor
poreal punishment, G.

PARKER CITY, Oct. 30.—Among the
many oil towns which have sprung up,
flourished and passed away, like the
historical gourd of the Prophet Jonah,
few have passed through more adver
sity or have had a harder stream to
pull against than the little city of Par
ker, whose career has just been prac
tically brought to an end—practically,
because there is hardly the shadow of
a chance that the burned district will
ever be rebuilt, for reasons noted fur
Ten years ago there were but few
buildings in the place, and those few
were mostly on the hill, in what is
known as Lawrenceburg, or the Second
ward. Among them were the old
stone building which stood on the cor
uer of Ludlow and Washington streets,
which was built by one Leonard in
1818, the old Adams' Hotel, the dwell
ing of 'Squire Balph, and a few small
dwellings, not to omit the dwellings of
the different Parkers.
In 1868 the oil excitement suddenly
swayed southward. Evidences of ac
tivity at once showed itself in the
building line, and in a year over two
hundred houses had been built; the
sounds of the hammer and saw were
heard in all directions. On the "Flat"
particularly was this activity mani
fested. The large three-story brick
occupied by Messrs. Wilson & Mani
fold was erected in 1873; this was fol
lowed by the Exchange and Savings
blinks, and the large brick hotel known
as the Mead House, opened and run
by W. H. Hollenbeck.
Here were congregated or situated
the head offices of all the pipe lines of
that period, viz., the United, the Karus,
the Union, the Pennsylvania Transpor
tation and the Grant, which handled
all the oil of the great Butler, Arm
strong and Clarion oil fields, employ
ing thousands of men, and represent
ing millions of dollars of capitol. But
like the black bass among the minnows,
the United swallowed the rest; Oil
City took the lead as head office of the
transportation business, and Parker
suffered a severe financial blow in con
In 1876 Johu T. Shirley erected tho
large building on River avenue, a
handsome three-story brick, lately oc*
cupied by George D. Prest, dry goods,
and Spain <fc Co., hardware. Many
wooden buildings were erected, a city
charter was procured, and Parker be
came a flourishing town, it being the
! fourth postoffice in the State. Tho

Centennial in '76, having occasion to
send a dispatch to Parker, he was
asked by the Philadelphia operator:
"Where is Parker City, and what kind
of a place is it ? I never heard of it
till a couple of years ago, and now we
send more messages there than to any
other place in the State." And it was
known from New York to San Fran
At a little after three o'clock yester
day morning the cry of fire—always
terribly ominous of evil to dwellers in
the oil country—startled the citizens
in hot haste from their beds, and soon
the streets were swarming with half
clad humanity, while a lurid glare in
the very heart of the First ward drew
the people to that spot, where the
building owned by lawyer J. T. SmuU
len, and occupied by J. Walrobenstein
as a wholesale liquor store and bot
tling works, was enveloped in flames.
The hose companies were promptly on
the ground, but there was no water,
the fires were out at the water-works,
and nothing could be done but carry
out goods and let the buildings burn.
A bucket brigade was formed to the
river, but the water was so far away
that this was soon abandoned, and tho
fire continued on its way until tho
large brick store of Wilson «fc Mani
fold, on the south, and the brick hotel,
of John McGlaughlin, on the north,
stopped the further advance of the
flames, but the entire heart of the First
ward was a mass of ruins.
The loss is a terrible one to Parker,
and but very few will rebuild, as there
is nothing here to warrant them in
doing so. Thus in a couple of hours'
time the city was laiJ in ashes and
almost entirely blotted out of existence.
Many of the sufferers lost their all and

This disease like" many others is regarded
as incurable. It is not so. If it is taken in
time it is us easily cured as a wart or a corn.
We know very well that it is a fearful disease
and will eat away until it destroys life, that
is if it is neglected, but if it is attended to
when it first makes its appearance, or soon
after, there is no trouble in eradicating it
from the system. Persons will have to be here
during part of the treatment, consequently
there is no use writing to me for information
whether it can be cured without my seeing the
case. I also treat with success, Rupture, Piles,

Denver now has a population of 40,000. Great cities are the outgrowth of great countries.
Twenty years ago Denver was a small trading post on the frontier, now it is a large city, with
numerous Churches, Hotels, Theaters, Street railroads Gas-works, Water-works. r,oW r.nrt
Silver Smelting and Itetiuing Works with a United States Mint, and is toe great luiilroaa
tenter of the west. There are seven First-class Ku tl roads now runnine and connect ins
with all the Principal and Brauch Railroads from Maine to California. It is the Capital or
Colorado, naturally the richest State in the Union, and located in about the gengrtiphicHi
center of the United States. The climate is charming, with the best water and purest air
in the world, and the scenery is unexcelled for beauty and grandeur. It is suriounOed
by the richest Gold, Silver, Copper, Iron, Lead, and Coal Mines and Agricultural Lands in
America. It is now the headquarters for Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, wy
c;aing, Nevada, Arizona, and Northern Texas. The rich mineral aud agricultural resources
of this vast country will make Denver the largest and wealthiest city in the West,
WHY LOTS ARE CIVEN AWAY.
As the tide of Immigration is now in this direction, it is the Company's interest to have
people locate in Denver and on tlieir property. To encourage emigration here, the < ornpany
will give to anyone sending their name and address a warrantee deed, in fee simple, for
one or more lots in North Denver, situated in Weld County, State of Colontdo. in immediate
view of this beautiful city, the only being one dollar to pay the Notary Public fee.3
fir acknowledging deed and conveyance. The Company does not fii ve every Jot away, but
each alternate one,and doe* not. expect that every person who gets a lot in North Denver
v ill come here, but a great many will, and they will induce their friends to follow. The in
creased population will soon make this property very valuable, and this Company retain
c ich alternate lot, which they hold at prices varying from &i"> to SSOO. according to location.
1" »r this reason the above proposition made. The deeds are unconditional, not requiring
ray one to settle or improve, but with lull power to transfer and deed to others. The limit
to any one person taking advantage of this offer is five lots. This properly I* no! hill
