Vontmmpilven Take Notice,
Every moment of delay makes your euro
more hopeless, and much depends on the judi
cious choice of a remedy. The amount of tes
timony in favor of Dr Behenck's Pulmonic
Syrup for Consumption, far exceeds all that
can be brought to support the pretensions of
any other medicine. See Dr. Behenck's Al
manac, containing the certificates of many per
sons of the highest respectability, who have
been restored to health, after being pronounc
ed Incurable by physicians of acknowledged
ability. Behenck's Pulmonic Syrup alone
cured many, as these evidences will show but
the cure Is often promoted by the employment
of two other remedies which Dr. Bchenek pro
vides for the purpose. These additional reme
dies are Behenck's Sea Weed Tonic and Man
drake Pills. By the timely use of thee medi
cines, according to directions. Dr. Bchenek
certifies that most any case of Consumption
tnny be cured.

Klttatinny on the South and Tuscarom
on the North, and the face of the county
between these mountains fs broken by a
number of hills uud ridges. The soil
where it Is not too much broken by
stony ridges Is generally productive, and
when carefully cultivated amply repays
the husbandman by abundant crops.

A win now give you an ucoouni oi
the different rivers and creeks in the
county which are quite numerou : The
Susquehanna which forms the luistern
boundary of the county, receives all
the streams that water the county. The
Juniata, (formerly spelled Choniata), is
the main tributary of the Susquehanna,
and rises by two distinct braii;he,calletl
theFrankstown and Ruystown branches.
After running one hundred miles, it
enters this county a few miles above
Millerstown, pursuing a Southwestern
course of twelve miles and empties in
the Susquehanna at Duncan's Inland.
Burger's run rises in Wild Cut Valley,
and empties Into the Susquehanna at
Liverpool. Hunter's run rises South of
Ruflhlo mountain and empties Into tho
Susquehanna at Mount Patrick, Coco
lamtis creek rises at the foot of Shade
mountain, in Juniata county, running
Southeast, and empties into the Juni
ata at Millerstown. Wild Cat creek
rises In Raccoon Valley, a few miles
Northeast of lckesburg,f1owiug through
the Valley of the same name for about
eight miles, and empties into the Juni
ata opposite Millerstown. Buffalo creek
rises In Liberty Valley at the base of the
Tuscarora mountain, winding its way
Eastward between Raccoon ridge, and
Middle ridge, Bud empties Into the
Juniata above Newport. Ijttle Bufililo
creek rises near the Middle ridge, passes
between this ridge and Limestone ridge,
and empties into the Juniata at New
port. Little Junlatit rises in Mahnny
ridge, runs a Southeastern course through
Bloomfleld, and empties into the Sus
quehanna Just above Duncannon.
Fishing creek rises Southwest of the
Cove mountain and empties into the
Susquehanna at the North base of the
Blue mountain. Cove run rises at the
Cove mountain and empties Into the
Susquehanna below Duncannon. 1 Sher
man's creek has fountain heart in
Franklin county, near tlrtj Round Top,
flows an Easterly course through the
county for more than 40' miles, and
empties Into the Susquehanna at Dun
cannon, flowing past the Perry county
Warm Springs, the water of which
have some celebrity as to medical pro
prieties, and healing virtues. Mount
Pisgah nods in front, and the moun
tain from which the Springs issue is In
the rear, while the waters of Sherman's
creek flow between. The Springs rise at
the foot of Ducker Hill, and emit about
00 gallons per minute. Thetemjierature
of the water Is nearly that of river
water In summer.'
Three lines of public improvement
pass through the county. The Penn
sylvania railroad which enters the
county 7 miles West of Harrlsburg,
passing up the right bank of the Sus
quehanna and Juniata rivers. The
Pennsylvania canal which crosses the
Susquehanna at Duncan's island and
divides, one branch passing along the
Eastern boundary of the county. The
Juniata division extends up the left
bank of the Junluta river for 15 miles,
where It crosses to the right bank by a
roje ferry. The Harrisburg and Hunt
ingdon Turnpike runs along the right
bank of the Juniata river.
Bloomfleld, the seat of Justice, was
located on a tract of land belonging to
Mr. George Barnett, and was so called
from the name given to the tract In the
patent. The town Is pleasantly situated
In a narrow valley -jiear the centre of
the county. The public buildings are a
court house, jail, academy, school house
and 4 churches.
Millerstown is situated on the right
bank of the Juniata river, 10 miles
northeast from Bloomfleld. When the
canal was excavated here, the workmen
found a number of bones supposed to
have been the remains of Indians.
Milford or Jonestown, 5 miles north

it received Its present name, Newport.
Duncannon, (formerly known as
Petersburg and Duncannon), Is a bor

bank of the Susquehanna river. It
contains the Duncannon Iron Works
which manufactures from 80 to 100 tons

is upon its agricultural products and In
this respect it will compare favorably
with the same number of acres in any
part of the State.

how Merchant was Dons For.
A very ingenious swindle was lately
perpetrated on a prominent dry goods
house by a finely dressed ludy who ap
peared iu the shuwl department, and,
after a careful examination, selected a
camel's hair shawl costing about $100.
for which she tendered In payment
$1,000 bill, which was carefully scriitln-J
l,ed by the cashier, who, doubting lilx
own powerof illscrimlnation,diHiatchrd
a messenger to the bank to ascertain the
gnulneness of tho bill. In a short time
the messenger returned and announced
In an audible tone (hat the cashier of the
bank said that the bill was good. ,TtW
lady upon hearing this waxed exceed
ing wroth, and demanded to knew
" whether lie thought that she wouldat
tempt to pass a counterfeit bill." Of
course apologies and explanations were
of no avail ; she refused to purchase the
shawl, and demanded her money, and
departed from the store the very em
bodiment of indignation. A couple of
hours afterwards he returned consider
ably mollified, and confessed that she
was pleased with the shawl, and that
her Inability to And one which she liked
as well was the only reason she return
ed, and she concluded to take It. Th
obliging salesman delightedly wrapped
up the shawl, while thecotirteous cash
ier, disdaining to entertain a suspicion
against such a lady, proceeded to count
out the $900 change,wlth which and her
shawl tho lady departed. The feeling
of the storekeeper can be better imagin
ed than described when he awoke to a
realizing sense of the fact that this lady
customer had, after all his precaution,
succeeded In passing upon him a coun
terfeit $1,000, she probably having two
bills In her possession, one a bogus ami
the other a genuine bill. Do'ton Globe
Unreeling a Pull-Back.
A most amusing scene was witnessed'
on K street the other day. A lady with
a vigorous pull-back skirt and an elab
orate polonaise was walking up K from
Fourth street. In that unaccountable
outside pocket which the fusbion pre
scribes shall be trained to the rear and
hung as low as possible upon the last
named garment, she had a new, full
spool of thread just purchased, evi
dently. An end of this, escaping frouji
the open pocket, caught the eye of a
K Btreet gamin a six or seven year old1
specimen. He deftly caught the end,
and, holding to it, found that it reeled
olT without the promeuadcr being aware
of it. He at once squared hlmeelf,sailor
fashion, in the middle of the walk, anH
as she " paid off" he " hauled In," hand'
over hand, to the infinite amusement of
half a hundred men who witnessed the
operation. In a brief time the line
reached clear up to Eighth street, from
near Fourth, and as the lady stepped out
on the flaggings to cross the street the
end ran off, and she went oil' with the
empty spool, blissfully unconscious of
the merriment behind her hack at her
expense. The cruel men and by this
time a hundred had seen the unreeling
process then began to speculate upon
the look of blank astonishment which
must have overspread her countenance
when, on reaching home she found the
spool empty, which she could assert was
full when she purchased it. Washing
We Believe in Fortune Telling,
" Do you believe in fortune telling 1"'
asks a young correspondent.
Yes, certainly we do, and practice it
too. Would you like a few trials of our
skill? Well, then, give attention.
When a boy with black hair and eyes al
ways tells the truth, he will be believed
and respected as long as he lives, and as
people would prefer to keep him alive,
he will stand a good ehance to arrive at
old age. A girl with brown hair and
blue eyes who obeysber parents, is good
tempered and industrious will have
many admirers, particularly among
sensible men, aud will therefore be in
the way of getting a good husband. If
a girl with rosy cheeks and curly hair
will avoid late hours, tight dresses, too
many nice things to eat, will take plenty
of exercise in the open air, and keep
good natured, she will probably be a
good looking and happy lady, and if she
obtains a good education, she will be a
fit wife for a governor or president In
all thsee cases the hair and eyes are of
no great importance, but the other re
quisites must be strictly observed to have
the good fortune come out right.
Hang np the Lanterns.
No one should ever place a light or
lantern on a barn-floor, or on a shop
floor where there are shavings. It is a
very easy thing to upset a light so placed
and the result is likely to be a conflagra
tion of the building. It is much more
prudent to place hooks here and there
about the premises, and have it under
stood that they are solely to hang the
lantern upon, and that other things
must be kept off, them. An unprotected
light should not be allowed in a barn
under any circumstances. If the kero
sene lamp had been bung up and not
placed where a cow could kick it over,
the burning of Chicago, and the conse
quent loss of millions of dollars, would
not have happened.
